Sheriff Arpaio Blasts McCain's "Liberal" Policies
Hotline On Call ^ | 2/9/2010 | Reid Wilson

Posted on 02/09/2010 5:43:06 PM PST by Outside da Box

Maricopa Co. Sheriff Joe Arpaio is urging GOPers to shelve Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in favor of ex-Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R), a challenger attacking from the right, in a new letter sent to primary voters.

"Senator McCain has served this country admirably but it's time to replace his moderate or even liberal positions on taxes, the border, social causes and big bank bailouts with a consistent conservative like J.D.," Arpaio writes in the letter. ""I just wish Senator McCain had run as hard against Barack Obama as he is against a conservative like J.D. That could have prevented the harmful, liberal agenda we are all now suffering through."

Sheriff Arpaio is sending letters trying to raise funds for JD Hayworth and I want to say something to everyone here.

Unlike McCain, who is wealthy on his own, JD Hayworth gave up his livelihood to challenge McCain, so it’s important for all of us who can’t vote in AZ to at least donate to JD’s campaign.

My proposal to FReepers.

Just a suggestion for fellow tea partiers to consider.

In blue states where conservatives have a legitimate shot, how about you red staters helping us out?

This is just one example but I’m sure there are many more.

In Michigan’s 7th district conservative Tim Walberg is leading incumbant democrat Mark Schauer in early polls which is a good thing. However, fundraising has been an issue in a state where the private sector has been decimated and the ACORN/SEIU types have been getting an increasing share of the taxpayer nipple. Basically there is nothing more to give in the places that need conservatives the most and I’m sure democrats have been counting on this.

I hope red state conservatives will take a close look at their races and if the conservative is doing well, maybe you can consider sending a few bucks to blue state conservatives who have a legitimate shot.

When you help a blue state elect a conservative, you help that state stand on its own and more important you help America.

It’s too bad Palin will be on the wrong side of this one and will (hopefully - for America’s sake) be embarrassed by a J.D. win.

I like Palin, but I am puzzled why she decided not to finish her term as governor of Alaska. I also do not understand why she continues to support McQueeg, who apparently does not live up to her standards on a number of vitalconservative issues. As far as I can see, she owes nothing to the guy. It is time she stand on her principles with no apologies, and if she could just snicker and shrug off the continued attacks, the people would see that she refuses to stooop to the Preogressive’s low level.

As a former resident of Sierra Vista I am going to terminate my automatic donation to Sarah and direct it to JD.

I grew up an Army Brat so we landed at every nook and cranny all over the world. During my stint in the Army, I came to Ft. Huachuca from duty in Teheran and quickly felt like I was at home for the first time in my life. I have never lost my love of the desert southwest since even though my career has me in Florida for the time being.

Okay, I guess you're mostly right. He's comfortable based on his Senate salary and what he earns from his investments. I see that his mother's family had money. Even so, he's a pauper compared to his wife.

Sheldon Alberts, "McCain, Heiress Wife Worth Almost $100 Million", Canwest News Service, 21 August 2008. John McCain's personal tax return reported $259K income in 2007, with Cindy McCain's last publicly released tax return, 2006, reported $6M in taxable income.

You asked why Sarah resigned. Read this by her atty.

The Ethos of Ethics

When the Governor announced her decision to resign on July 3, she pointed out the then 15 frivolous ethics complaints that had been filed against her and dismissed.

It was intended to explain, in part, her decision to resign as well to educate the public about the abuse of the Alaska Ethics Act through a repetitive stream of baseless partisan accusations, each one seemingly more pointless and frivolous than the next. The Governor’s message was not intended as an invitation to run off half-cocked and file more baseless ethics complaints, but not everyone understood that message—or wanted to understand. In August 2009, largely in response to the abuse of Alaska’s Ethics Act by partisan shills and low level lackeys, the Attorney General issued an opinion recommending changes to the Ethics Act ”to prevent another potential harm—abuse of the process. Some Alaskans have argued that the Ethics Act has been used inappropriately in some circumstances to politically damage the subject of the complaint.” (August 5, 2009 Attorney General Opinion).

That argument was asserted by the Anchorage Daily News. “Our View: Abuse of Ethics Complaints Turns Good Law Into Bad Politics,” Anchorage Daily News, May 3, 2009. The Attorney General further recommended “another safeguard to discourage habitual complaint filers who use the Ethics Act process to harass executive branch employees. Statutory amendments could provide authority to the personnel board to decline to process further complaints filed by a person who has abused the Act in this way.

” Though it is encouraging to see an impartial evaluation of the problem, it is ultimately up to the Legislature to implement any of these recommended changes. Governor Palin has been subjected to 24 ethics complaints, several lawsuits, and dozens and dozens of public information act requests, few of which raised even a scintilla of a good faith issue, and most of which were simply done to garner a headline or promote opposition research for political gain.

Recently we learned that two more ethics complaints against Governor Palin have been dismissed—complaints that were filed after the Governor announced her plans to step down. One complaint asserted that it was unethical for the state to follow its own per diem regulations and pay per diem to the Governor as set forth by law. Of course, the complainant conveniently overlooked that the Governor and her family received less per diem than they were entitled to under State law—why let such details stand in the way of an ethics complaint? The other complaint that was dismissed asserted that the Governor, through me, supposedly violated the constitution because we informed a person who falsely implied that the Governor was “under investigation” by the FBI, that such statements are defamatory.

It is notable to watch those who agitate on all things Palin—locally and even across the Atlantic—as they Huff and puff falsehoods about Sarah Palin under the guise of free speech, which brings us to a teachable moment. All too often we hear about constitutional rights—as we should—but many forget about constitutional responsibilities. As citizens we have both rights and responsibilities. Though we have the right to exercise free speech, we have the responsibility to exercise that right without defaming people.

I like the way our Alaska Constitution describes it: “Every person may freely speak, write, and publish on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of that right.” Ak. Const. Art. I, Sec. 5. The irony of filing an ethics complaint because of a reminder about the constitutional parameters of free speech is no doubt lost on those consumed by irrationality when it comes to Sarah Palin; but one does not need an ethics law to know that positive political discourse depends on a robust debate about facts and the policy implications stemming from such facts. The nation is not helped by calumnious ad hominem attacks against Sarah Palin, matrilineal conspiracy theories, and aberrant notions of ethics.

- Thomas Van Flein, Personal Attorney for Sarah Palin

If you solve that puzzle, don’t keep the answer to yourself. Yes, she was on his ticket, but look at what McCrazy’s campaign staff has tried to do to her-oh yeh, McCrazy didn’t know anything about it, I forgot about that.

Anyway, solve that puzzle and you’ll win today’s Freeper prize.
