Abuse Of Power: Our misnamed Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against an Arizona sheriff at the top of the administration's enemies list. Prosecute border sheriffs and sue states but protect the Black Panthers? Gotcha.
The Justice Department has filed a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, the county itself and outspoken Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The suit alleges that the sheriff's office is in violation of civil rights laws by refusing for 17 months to fully cooperate with an investigation into police practices and jail operations.
The federal probe itself deals with alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and having English-only policies in the jails.
"The actions of the sheriff's office are unprecedented," said Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for the department's civil rights division. "It is unfortunate that the department was forced to resort to litigation to gain access to public documents and facilities."
What is unprecedented and unfortunate is the administration's war on Arizona for enforcing federal law and protecting its border, our border.
The feds have sued the state over the implementation of SB1070, which mirrors existing federal law, alleging that it's racist even though the law specifically prohibits racial profiling. The administration, in a report to the United Nations, has cited the state as a human rights violator.

NOBODY’S gonna GIVE those things to you, save God. But He tells us to work out our OWN salvation... and in this sense, WE MUST TAKE BACK our own liberty and our own country. No one’s gonna do it for us.
I will not wait for the master to "give" me my freedom....I will take it.....after all, it is mine and always was mine.
Why would anyone want the U.N. involved in sovereign issues of state?
Ignore the bastards.....then defund them.....then tow the vehicles...then cancel the lease....then sell the building.
More proof we are in the last days, Good will be called Evil and Evil will be called Good.
It sure looks that way
SECURE VOTERS, NOT BORDERS!
Brewer Pledges to Keep Fighting the Feds to Secure Arizonas Border | Hannity
HANNITY: You know, theres a lot of speculation. A lot of people have come up with their own theories as to why they think this is happening.
What do you think? Do you think this is about politics?
Do you think this is about vote gathering? Did you think this is, you know, breaking people into demographics?
That the Democrats have calculated this will help them with the Hispanic vote in the country?
BREWER: All of the above. Its pretty obvious what is taking place.
You know, it is all politics in regards to how they are behaving, theres absolutely no excuse for it.
I mean, its you know, its like the unions, the bottom line the unions are at the White House more than he is.
You know, theyre running our country.
HANNITY: All right, Governor, always a pleasure, thank you for being with us. Appreciate it.
BREWER: Thank you. Thank you for your support, Sean.
HANNITY: You bet. Thank you.
