DOJ TO SHERIFF ARPAIO: MONITOR ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY
ARPAIO TO DOJ: I WILL NOT SURRENDER MY OFFICE TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
(Phoenix, AZ) A series of meetings between representatives for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the U.S. Department of Justice were slated to begin tomorrow to discuss ways to resolve allegations of racial profiling by Sheriffs employees.
But hours before the first meeting, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Roy Austin of the Department of Justice's Civil Rights Division called Arpaios attorneys with an ultimatum. Austin stated that it was absolutely mandatory for the Sheriffs Office to agree to have an outside monitor otherwise there is no reason for further meetings.
Appointment of an outside monitor essentially usurps the powers and duties of an elected Sheriff and transfers them to a person or group of persons selected by the federal government. Every policy decision, every operation, every new program in the jails and in enforcement, virtually everything would have to be approved by the monitor, nullifying the authority of the elected Sheriff and eviscerating the will of the citizens of Maricopa County.
I am the constitutionally and legitimately elected Sheriff and I absolutely refuse to surrender my responsibility to the federal government. And so to the Obama administration, who is attempting to strong arm me into submission only for its political gain, I say, This will not happen, not on my watch!

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Joe is getting to 0bama
I am thinking the worst of this development. And I am sure that many of you are thinking the same thing. If the feds are ready to order an elected sheriff to relinquish his post, then it seems to me that "plans" are farther along than we think. It almost seems like a green light for other elements of societal unrest to begin.
God, I love this man. I was in Phoenix last week but did not have time to find his office. Next trip our there, I’m making a special point to visit him and shake his hand.
They’re not ordering him to relinquish his office.
Back down,feds. There is no need for further meetings.
The current regime doesn’t realize that the USA is made up of sovereign states. But then, when you have a clown in office that doesn’t know the Constitution even though he taught it ....
Fort Sumter (1861) = Maricopa County (2012) ?
STAND TALL SHERIFF JOE...
They A R E getting desperate : )
To borrow a phrase from Algore, and use it where it is actually true, there is no controlling legal authority. The DoJ has no Constitutional authority to oversee a county sheriff’s office’s business.
“The DoJ has no Constitutional authority to oversee a county sheriffs offices business.”
Well, if we are going to talk about the magnificent, limited government PROSCRIBED poswers of our Constitution, we need to roll back to a better United States of at least 100 years ago.
Joe and Reagan are the two people I suspect that clank when they walk!

Too bad it it too late for Arpaio to run for POTUS. He be good compared to Fake Milk & Cookies boy Romney.
It's right out of the Alinsky play book. When you're losing ground, double down. They're going to persist until it breaks out in open warfare. Best be prepared for it. When it comes to that, take Henry Bowman's advice, as I surely will: "If you see something that needs doing, DO it!"
"Never pick a fight with an old man.

Joe is a great man. One of few politicans who aren’t afraid to stand up to the punk treasonous POTUS.
The Conservative Movement has been a long, hard struggle for the last century TO GET RID OF THE PROGRESSIVES.
Last thing we want to do is have to start that over!

Epecially one of the bravest men in America : )
I think that is what they are hoping for. Civil unrest, strife, and war. Then it makes it easier to demand more control.
I just emailed them (DOJ) asking what the hell do these fools think they’re attempting.
Let’s see if I receive a response. No worries, I won’t hold my breath.

We’re starting over.
No, they want absolute, total control over his office. He would just be a figurehead at that point, as they would make all decisions.
In a very real sense, these Kommunist klowns have no idea who they’re messing with - and that includes the many of us who have watched this debacle of destruction go down for years. We are slow to anger, but once loosed, it will not be contained.
Green lights work both directions—
Even so, America of even 50 years ago was MARKEDLY better than the nightmare ofRaceMarxism which is dominant in today's United States.

On THAT, my FRiend, we are in total agreement.
Do you think we can draft him for our president, Maybe a US Wide write-in campaign.., (WE)The USA needs this man at the pointy end of the stick.
Joe is 80....though I share the sentiment.
No just the powers of his office.
What you are looking for is the 1820s when Congress screwed everything up by deciding it was OK for immigrants to come to America.
That is nearly 200 years ago!
BTW, that period from 1870 to 1913 is just as bad as later.
I have some qualms about what Philippe II/III did by carving up North America with the Brits and French in 1604. Certainly the Swedish Empire and the Hapsburg "Empire" had quite enough people to fill up the interior without all those guys.
So, take your pick ~ 200 years back, or 400 years back ~ definitely a free'r country with boundless opportunity.
Gov. Brewer may need to use the AZ national guard to protect Sheriff Joe from the Feds, and dare Zer0 to nationalize them.
This bears repeating:
Just wait till every Sheriff office has to have a “monitor” from the Fed.
Thats when we should have another “Fort Sumter”
Maybe you should write to your representatives in Federal government and tell them that they need to call the DOJ off!
Or Arpaio may not be there the next trip you make.
Snip: The Soviet government also controlled communications media, such as newspapers, books, and radio. This meant that most Soviet citizens could not learn much about other nations around the world.
Snip: The world communist movement constitutes a clear and present danger to the citizens of the state of Louisiana and is a dangerous enemy of the state of Louisiana. This makes it necessary that the Legislature, in order to protect the people of the state, to preserve the sovereignty of the state under the constitutions of the United States and the state of Louisiana, and to guarantee to the State a republican form of government, enact appropriate legislation recognizing the existence of the world communist movement and preventing it from the accomplishment of its purposes in the state of Louisiana.
Snip: When parents say, 'My daughter', 'My son', the words do not simply imply the existence of a parental relationship, they also give expression to the parents' view that they have a right to educate their own children. From the socialist outlook, no such right exists.
The republicans will hang Sherif Joe out to dry.
This move would relinquish all his powers, not his position which would make him just be a man wearing a star. Then it would give the Feds all the info to destroy about Obama, cleaning up his background.
Joe knows full well that any DOJ presence would be the camel’s nose under the tent. He can’t, absolutely CAN NOT, give them any slack at all.
The DOJ under Holder has zero credibility and strongly damaged legitimacy. Virtually all US Federal Agencies are under clouds because of the willingness the Obama Administration has shown to use them as political tools.
Sheriff Arpaio is the first, but I don’t believe he will be the last.
I will go back that many years if I can still have indoor plumbing....used an outhouse as a kid....yuk
“If the feds are ready to order an elected sheriff to relinquish his post, then it seems to me that “plans” are farther along than we think.”
Yes, I agree...much secret stuff going on, there’s no doubt in my mind that much is already in place. We need to keep praying for Sheriff Joe and for good men (and women) everywhere to stand up.
Joe is America’s Sheriff.
Believe me, I am re-reading that novel intensely these days, along with Matt Bracken's novels and Mike Vanderboegh's. The time is coming closer.
