Left Strike Back on Jared Lee Loughner A Registered Republican! (Libs push fake doc on Twitter)
Solid Principles.com ^ | 1/9/2011 | Craig Edwards

Posted on 01/10/2011 12:05:13 AM PST by Qbert

This was exactly the left needed to prove their Tea Party allegations and to deflect some heat from any association with Jared Lee Loughner – their Smoking gun? Loughner was a registered Republican in Pima County.  Let the Tea Party comparisons continue, ad nauseam.

UPDATE Jan 9, 2011 - 23:15 WST: Since this was posted some debate has emerged how legitimate this claim is – over at democraticunderground.com one user links up this article and mentions Solid Principles ”got the image from the ‘left’, but don’t elaborate where they got it.”.  The answer is we obtained from tumblr account via a post on Twitter – we added the above commentary and that’s all we did.

This same user at democraticunderground.com adds:  ”I went to the Arizona Secretary of State site and tried to perform the search myself. Turns out you need to know BOTH Loughner’s birthdate AND either his voter registration ID or driver’s license number to get the information. Considering I don’t know how anyone would have gotten this, I find this entire claim to be suspect”.

Thank you user Barack_America at democraticunderground.com, and to answer your question “Why would a conservative website be promoting this?” – we find it important to follow a story, and posting this element is all part of following the story.  I too share you skepticism over it’s origins.

Silly, desperate DUmmies...:

"Loughner registered to vote for the first time in 2006, said Chris Roads, Pima County's registrar of voters. He registered as an independent and last voted in the 2008 general election."

Even if he was a Republican, so what? It no more proves his party affiliation drove him to kill five people than if he was a Democrat.

Yeah, I think it’s pretty clear from numerous experts that he was Schizophrenic. His delusions likely lead him to the shootings.

You're absolutely correct. But it's all moot since no fact is going to get in the way of the Left's narrative that Sarah Palin and the Tea Party were somehow behind what happened.

Actually all you need to find this information is a voter database like Voter Vault or DataMart, or one of the other services. I read an article today that claimed he was a registered Independent.

90% of people in prisons are democrats.
People who live in glass houses should not throw rocks at others.
No body ever claimed 100% of republicans are angels. There are plenty of bad apples in any group as large as republicans (aprox 100 million)

I find it hard to believe that someone at voter registration would call the city “Tuscon” twice in the same document. But maybe I’m kidding myself.

The creators of this document would've been advised to learn how to spell "Tuscon" before fabricating it.

It is, instead, Tucson.

Instant dismissal.

Interesting you brought up Lennon. Loughner was apparently fixated on Giffords since 2007- much the same way Mark David Chapman was fixated on Lennon for a long time. I guess they just get “it in their heads” and then it’s only a matter of time. Scary.

If that report is accurate, and he indeed was a registered independent, then I’d have to say he was a registered independent who leaned left convincingly. Not trusting in God (according to his YouTube postings), killing a conservative federal judge, admiring the Communist Manifesto, and having a possible grudge against the military sound like lib pursuits to me.

fyi...

nyt is reporting that mother worked for many years for pima county park (Agua Caliente from what I can see), father was described by a neighbor as “very aggressive” and it seems like his employment is unknown or none. Other sites say he works on some antique cars. Ok, fine, to each their own.

It’s rapidly becoming obvious the conservative/tea party bashing is just standard “don’t waste a crisis” tactic by the blogging left.

I’m just hypothesizing, it sounds more like we might have some county folks who obviously knew about Amy’s (Mom’s) troubles at home to some extent, as Jared had that “diversion” to avoid a conviction - that involved police. Police are then very very aware that this county employee’s kid has all kinds of problems. So this situation has to be known. Unfortunate, but no one suspects anything this bad.

Does mom go to work every day managing a county park, dad is home, Jared is home putting letters from congresswoman in his “safe”, dropping/kicked out of school, buying a gun ? Dad’s hanging around all day and is unaware, yelling at the neighbors to pick up their trash ? Sounds like trouble here, of course, sliding downhill to Jan 8.

Now, county (Pima county) sheriff’s office... hmmm... poor loyal county employee Amy (Mom) has monster troubles... the “kid hit the fan”. I’m just not seeing a real “go-gettem” attitude from sheriff on this case whenever Jared is specifically discussed. Perhaps he’d like to find an excuse (tv/radio/internet) for the kid, and oops - was he not supposed to say all his political talk there for the defense attorneys to use saying his investigation was prejudiced ? It seems that AZ is taking a long time to come up with charges; I wonder how much the phones are buzzing down in Pima. Seems like the Feds very quickly determined that Judge was not there just to say hello as sheriff initially said (which would make it NOT a federal crime), but he had dropped by to discuss some dang big case backlog with the local Congresswoman.

The college has nicely said that no, they did not kick him out, he withdrew. (nice legal move... if they kicked him out, maybe they’d have some more splainin as to why no LE report. (hmmm.. county college, same county) But he left on his own.

Just sounds like local Pima politics is just in a very unfortunate spot - I don’t remember 1 republican mentioned anywhere. One article I read reported someone saw Dad crying in the driveway.

I think this crisis to call for gun control will continue to be pushed by left, but this messy situation is what will probably unfold.

It seems to really be about how differently kids are raised today, in a liberal, politically correct fashion, way too much latitude, no structure, extremely light punishments when they are given, parents not managing their home, etc., and it just doesn’t work. Not that in the old days there were no such problems, but it seems like schools, parents, cops, do everything but actually put their proverbial foot down out of fear. Instead, it’s tons of money and time spent (see Pima counties websites) on all sorts of programs (I’m reminded of Gene Wilder trying to talk to that big prison inmate) to avoid situations like this, but with no improvement over the 3-room schoolhouse. This tragedy seems like EXACTLY what the “diversion” program (for 1st offendors) is supposed to try to prevent.

Of course, we all know that the completely random attack is impossible to prevent as long as their are sticks and rocks around.

And unfortunately, the media is babbling about how to take away “all” guns, and no one is mentioning that the poor Congresswoman had absolutely no security measures taken. I wish they could see how foolish their “news” is when they don’t highlight that complete lack of security. Would not every state want to protect its top/visible leaders when they have these types of open meetings ? A little preparation, a little screening, and perhaps low-key and professional approach, most regrettably, would have saved lives. If the shooter used different tactics it could have been very much worse. I just find no excuse for having zero security preparation for public figures while trying to disarm law-abiding citizens.

IMHO.

Not only is “Tuscon” spelled wrong, if you go to the Arizona Independent Redistricting Commission website and put in the address listed on this “registration” it comes up in Senator District 26. This fraud voter reg says District 27.
