Schwarzenegger’s shameful last act (this will make your blood boil)
http://michellemalkin.com/ ^ | 1/03/11 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 01/02/2011 10:23:38 PM PST by teg_76

Retiring celebrity governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California was bad for the GOP in so many ways, I’ve stopped counting them.

So, how did Schwarzenegger leave office? By committing one last shameful act of back-scratching politics as usual and granting a commutation to the son of a Democrat political crony, former California Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez (his longtime collaborator on job-killing environmental regulations) .

Arnie Kennedy-Shriver is Democrat sleaze. Can't think of any reason he calls himself a Republican, except to tarnish the image.

Hope he enjoys his legacy, a miserable failure as governor of what should be the greatest state. Not that it's all his fault, but he didn't even bother trying to right the ship. Go along, to get along.

And now Moonbeam will destroy what's left of it.

Nancy Pelsoi and Barbara Boxer both born, raised and educated on the east coast NY area...And the stinking governor is not only not from CA, but isn't even from the U.S.

California has been totally infected by these foreigners.

I dunno if that's really the problem. Jerry Brown is a "native-born" Californian, whereas Ronald Reagan was born and raised in Illinois, started his career in Iowa, and didn't move to California until later in life. I don't have a problem with electing a state official who was born somewhere else, as long as their first priority is serving their adopted state.

On the other hand, the fact so many "California" voters are themselves foriegn-born natives that have NOT assimilated one bit, IS a huge problem, in my opinion. The motor voter law has been an absolute disaster, and lead to people like Loretta Sanchez replacing people like Bob Dornan. Foreign countries shouldn't be deciding who are our officials are.

Here is the punk murderer on the left. He really looks broken up while the victims family reads their statement. This POS hasn't even spent a year in the clink. I think this will leave this loser Arnie with a nice black eye until his death. He deserves it.

Esteban Nunez, left, and Ryan Jett listen to victim impact statements in from the family of Luis Santos on Friday, June 25, 2010.

That too...

Of course, with the U.S. government's chain immigration, as they wave in one million foreigners per year, (with no jobs available) the entire country will go the same away...

Whoa... Does this pissclown Schwarzenneger have not an ounce of shame? The only reason the jailed knife thug got any break at all is because he is the son of a politician. If he wasn’t, Schwarzenegger would never have heard of him, let alone given the slightest crap about him. But the kid is “connected” so he gets a gift.

Yikes. Just when you thought Arnold couldn’t get any sleazier.
Good riddance to Arnold. Get the hell outta here.

No reason for CA folks to run Arnold off like they did Davis, as he did everything the liberals and unions in the major population areas of CA wanted. It’s a joke to think of him as a Republican.

IOW Fabian helped Arnold make money for his globalist sponsors by helping him kill California. Once the State is truly done, they'll pick up the pieces of their fiefdom for pennies on the dollar.

Yeah, I hear you. Nunez does look all broken up there, listening to the victims families. That is, if a self satisfied smug look is "broken up".

Here's a couple of more, earlier photos grabbed from the web. They were lifted off of the smirking little thug's facebook page, before he deleted them. Notice the knife action, and what looks like blood on the floor.

Making like he's going to stab the cat...

The boy's got a thing for knives.

From: latinopoliticsblog.com

Worst California Governor EVER! Political paypack for a former Speaker of the California House?

Whatssamatta' with the Ahnold? He can't find someone more deserving to have their sentence commuted? Surely, this is like a slap in the face to some of the others who have sought pardon through that office, but were denied.

The sentence was already plea bargained down, so the direct witnesses accounts didn't make it to trial(?). Would those witnesses have put the knife in Nunez's hand?

Did the Ahnold do due diligence when researching this question? Or, did he just listen to "one side" of the story?

I hope the prosecutors leak the witness statements. And do it soon, like NOW.

This is important. We don't want a Governor to not be allowed to commute an unjust sentence, or one with particular extenuating circumstance, but we DO NOT want the circumstance to be one chiefly of political connection.

So leak already, San Diego prosecutors. SPILL THE BEANS.

Reading another article on the Nuñez commutation, I’m not entirely outraged when I take politics out of the case. He wasn’t the person who made the fatal stabbing, just someone involved in the fight. He plead out to manslaughter yet received exactly the same 16 year sentence as the murderer. He had anticipated 7 to 11 years but the judge gave identical 16 year sentences. Arnold went for 7 which I’m sure was a political favor. Would Nuñez have gotten this commutation nearer the deal he struck if he wasn’t Fabian’s son? Likely not but did being Fabian’s son influence the judge to punish him disproportionately to his involvement? It’s possible and that would be wrong. I’d probably have left the case alone in Arnold’s shoes.

Here is the punk murderer on the left.

Actually(!), the "punk murderer" was Ryan Jett. It was his stabbing that killed the victim. Nuñez was just involved in the altercation and had plead to manslaughter yet got the same sentence as murderer Jett.

Facts can be stubborn things. To be honest, I have a hard time believing 16 years is all Jett got. That's a pitiful sentence.

I see Brown is getting ready to appoint former State Senaturd Laird of Santa Cruz head of the resources agency!!! (saw it on Rtumble.com yesterday)

That's even "sicker" and potentially much more damaging to CA than the disgusting sentence commuting by trojan horse Arnholed Schwartzenrenegger!!!

Between that Commie Camilla and lousy Laird, we'll REALLY have GANG-GREEN finishing off CA!!!

“On the way back, Murray testified, Nunez told him he had stabbed someone in the shoulder and that Jett stabbed someone, too. Santos bled to death, another young man was stabbed in the back and stomach, a third was stabbed in the shoulder and a fourth was punched in the eye.

The following day, Murray testified that he watched Nunez and Jett attempt to burn a bloody shirt down by the Sacramento River. Garcia was also there at the time.” LA Weekly Sept. 18, 2009

I know the “facts” may get in the way out in Cali were there is absolutely no law and order, but here in PA the above described acts of Nunez places him squarely identified as a murderer.

He acted to commit a felony crime with an accomplice and made attempts to cover it up and did not notify the authorities. It does not matter a wit which of the youts knife blade was fatal, they all are responsible. If you rob a bank with a partner and your partner kills the teller, you are up for murder one with the partner.

No, the facts were gathered, investigation completed, and this little pampered well connected son of a bitch was sentenced to 16 years in prison for his role in this.

There are no problems with the facts or law and order, as California has some of the toughest criminal sentencing laws in the entire country, tougher than PA in fact.

It took a single Republican/foreigner to turn that sentence around. This specific case was corrupted and undermined by those insiders within government.

Big surprise huh?

You betcha!!! Just wait till they start up that state/federal EnvironMental Crimes Enforcement Task Force again, like they tried to do in 1996! They were dangling federal resources in the face of all CA's DA's when county budgets for DA's were stretched thin by state and federal revenue rip-offs by converting property taxed land into state and federal land for CONservancies!!!

You talk about a chilling effect on business, employment and commerce in general... WHEW!!!

We're right back where we were in 1976 during the US Bi-centenial with Moonbeam as Governor and somebody just like Jimmy Carter in the whitehouse serving out Jimmy's second term!!! Deja vu all over again!!!
