Skip to comments.Schwarzenegger’s shameful last act (this will make your blood boil)
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, Ive 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) .

He'll be back?
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.
And to think, we ran off Gray Davis for less.
...it’s who you know.
POX on the house of Arnold.
Send him back to where he came from, and make his wife go with him!
Their all riding in the back of the same limo folks!
I hope to God the term limit laws in California apply to lifetime “service” and not just consecutive terms, so the girlyman austrian socialist won’t be bachkkkkkkkkk in the Governor’s chair ever again.
California has been totally infected by these foreigners.
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.
Esteban Nunez, left, and Ryan Jett listen to victim impact statements in from the family of Luis Santos on Friday, June 25, 2010.
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.
These people running government flipping unbelievable...It's broad daylight, in your face corruption....
They're all riding in the back of the same limo.

This is da vay Aarold things: “OK, I’ve pumped yo up, I aam the Gov, now little boy, do vat I say. Do it! - do it now. Movie staars like me know yo vorship me — I aam smart. I have respect from tootsie toe, my vife, and she tells me I vill live forever even if my biceps turn to apple sauce und I grow two pee pees. OK, 20000000 push ups for everyone in California right now. I’m harrrd. And if you loosers lose I vill be gone to tomorrrow to Obama und his merry men to givve to the rich from de poor. See!”
-- Arnold Schwarzenegger, U.S. News & World Report, Nov 26, 1990
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.
“He’ll be back?”
No...that would be, “I’ll be back”, to which I answer, “I hope the hell not!” lol
California is well represented by the likes of Arnold, Boxer, and assorted other far left America haters.
This almost makes me look forward to moonbeam. He can’t be any more despicable.
When asked to comment, Ahnold stated “It’s not like he drove a girl off a bridge or sumpting”.
What did everyone expect. He’s married to a democrat.
Ninety-five percent of the
people in the world need to be told what to do and how to behave.”
Arnold is in the 95%.
Would you believe that Michelle Malkin actually insists that Obama is constitutionally qualified to be President? Now that’s unquestionably shameful. Michelle has compromised her personal integrity and should retire from the public arena.
This is what Arnold has to say about his action:
" Ai gotda vunny veeling dah Reepublucan Potty tinks RINOS are
pure crapola. Chonny, Rooty und ai ghonna ghet jops ass Val-Mart
greetahs, Home Depot paint mixahs, McD's ketchop pumpahs,
undt vaitahs at Ved Lopstah....ven ai loosses mai jop ass govnah."
I hope to God the term limit laws in California apply to lifetime service and not just consecutive terms, so the girlyman austrian socialist wont be bachkkkkkkkkk in the Governors chair ever again.Yeah, Schwarzenegger's done. Term limits was passed after Brown was governor, so he gets another couple of shots at destroying the state.
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.
Another said Nunez declared that he "got one of them" as they left a group of men, including one who said he had just been stabbed.
Jett and Nuñez pleaded guilty in May to voluntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon.
They also admitted using a knife in the incident and causing great bodily injury.
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.
Wow. That kid is a real POS. I guess Arnie should get his spin ready for when this punk inevitably is released and kills again.
It does not seem that this idiot is wired right. And Nunez has a lot of problems too.
Telling. However Ron and Rand Paul may be the only two politicians in America who don't believe this. Certainly, most conservatives believe it just as strongly as the Left does.
California has half of the illegal aliens in this country. Half.
Hasta la vista Arnold!
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.
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.
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!!!
Proves once again, the Republicans and Democrats are all riding in back of the same limo.
“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?
Nunez stabbed another guy in the stomach, a felony. He was involved in a knife fight where someone was killed. That’s first degree murder plain and simple.
I know what ya mean about Laird — but can anyone be worse than Mary Nichols?
They need to abolish that whole department, IMO.
Yes. That’s a WAY bigger problem, in my view.
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!!!
Geez, don't say that...the idiot spends a lot of time in my state, Idaho. We don't want either of the D-Bags here.
I think he wanted to prove he is a kennedy.
I thought you couldn’t rollerskate in a buffalo herd!!!
90 percent of he countrys in the world could solve 90% of their problems if their ‘’leaders’’ would allow it. I can’t say about Kali.
