Sheriff Joe flays Fox News anchor; Arpaio fires back at reporter in feisty interview
WND ^ | 4/4/12 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 04/04/2012 11:29:28 PM PDT by Nachum

Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio reminded everyone why he’s considered “America’s toughest sheriff” when he took a Fox News anchor to task in a live interview this afternoon.

Appearing on “America Live” with Megyn Kelly, Arpaio told Kelly she was wrong in some of her reporting about a federal investigation into his treatment of Hispanics in Maricopa County, Ariz.

The U.S. Justice Department is looking into allegations of racial profiling, a charge Arpaio denies, and the federal government wants Arpaio to allow an independent monitor to oversee the conduct of his office.

The Obama administration announced it’s now preparing to sue Arpaio. The Justice Department has said negotiations have broken down with the sheriff, who also believes President Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service card are likely forgeries.

Though Kelly never mentioned concerns over Obama’s eligibility in her interview, she did ask Arpaio why it would be a deal-breaker to have a federal monitor in his presence to make sure everything in his county office were “legit.”

How would you feel, Kelly, about having a Federal monitor tooling around your office at FOX News?

I saw this live when it happened. Sheriff Joe destroyed her. I really have liked Meghan Kelly, as she doesn’t often back down on any issue with folks on the show, but Wednesday Sheriff Joe put her in her place by stating facts. The look on her face was priceless when he corrected her. .....Go Sheriff Joe!!!

I lost what little respect I had for Megyn when she OVERLOOKED THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM and failed to make any mention of THE SOLE REASON OBAMA AND HOLDER HAVE BEEN HARASSING AND RETALIATING AGAINST ARPAIO; His eligibility investigation of 0bama!

Okay, Megyn.. Back to your sensationalism, feminism, narcissism and false humility!

Quite frankly, I don’t see what you guy’s are carping about with this interview. Kelly did a pretty good job of interviewing Sheriff Joe. I’d like to see the feds get their asses handed to them again in court by Sheriff Joe just like I hope they do tomorrow by SCOTUS.

WND is misleading so they can pimp a traffic-grabbbing headline. Megyn Kelly was very respectful - as she always is - with Sheriff Joe. It’s her job to state the DOJ’s claims and allow Joe plenty of time to rebut them, which she did, and he did well. Kelly has had Joe on many time to state his case, and clearly likes and respects the Sheriff. WND can be really annoying sometimes with their hype. Joe wasn’t on to discuss the eligibility issue, so it is also unfair to hit Kelly on that.

“I don’t see what you guy’s are carping about with this”

I couldn’t agree with you more. Kelly asked the questions she should have, and never disputed any of Arpaio’s answers. She gave him the opportunity to state his case which he did very well. I believe the sheriff would agree.

Agree.

Interview is a good, solid interview.

Lets face it this situation is a case of DOJ trying to set a ‘backfire’. They know when Arpio comes out with the specifics in the cold case posse it will set off a fire storm. This is an attempt to set the stage for discrediting Arpio when that happens.

These thugs are so predictable.

Megyn dear, not that you or many people in the rest of the country would understand it, but it's called assumed jurisdiction

This ain't Joe's first rodeo, so he knows what he's doing.

GO JOE!

I need to send Sheriff Arpaio a campaign contribution.

Joe Arpaio is an old school, real man, fighting a real war, where one of the main battle lines of that war has been redrawn through the Maricopa Sheriff's office.

Time to do my part to help resupply those fighting on that front. This is one of the "must win" battles in 2012.

DR. JEROME CORSI
‘VERY CLOSE TO IDENTIFYING THE FORGER’

http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2012/04/dr.html

SNIP

As stated earlier, most of what Dr. Corsi spoke of and displayed was not new to most of the people but there were two, very important pieces of information that should be noted.

First, the investigators in the Cold Case Posse apparently are more convinced than ever that they know who the individual is that performed the actual forgeries. This is important because it is a significant starting place where professional investigators can begin to unravel the conspiracy.

That’s not to say that this forger will be water boarded, unfortunately, but you can be sure he will be completely and thoroughly “interviewed”.

Secondly and very importantly, it appears that Sheriff Arpaio, when his investigation and fact finding are sufficiently comprehensive, will make the entire package available to the public so the people will be able to print it out and present it to the over one thousand county sheriffs across this country, who will be compelled by law to investigate and take action.

The greatest cover up and conspiracy in our nation’s history is beginning to crumble. It’s complete collapse can’t come soon enough.

Agree w you that scam and coverup are crumbling. You could liken it to a game of whack-a-mole. At first only a few moles were popping up, and Obama’s flying monkeys had no problem smacking them down hard. As time passed, however, more and more moles appeared. Obama’s lackeys are still whacking frantically, but for every mole they hit three or four more pop up. They’re losing control of the ‘game’.

Eventually the moles will prevail. It can’t, as you said, happen soon enough.

I keep forgeting though, that this is FReep, and no matter how conservative, how fair, how honest, if a person doesn’t pass the FR smell test...then for sure they are on the take, commies, whatever.

"Eventually the moles will prevail. It can’t, as you said, happen soon enough."

From your keyboard to God's inbox. However, a caveat:

As the charade continues along after three years, and after many, many hours every day (and most nights) mulling over what I've read over the past year, once I decided that there was "some merit" to eligibility concerns, I've come to a point where I can conclude that this entire situation was quite possibly a setup from the beginning.

If your aim is the destruction of the US, the widespread discovery that the presidency itself was stolen would rend the fabric of the Republic just as much, if not more so, than "x" number of years of an illegitimate "Obama" pResidency. Both are useful to the Cause.

Given the racial overtones that invariably and inevitably impinge on any substantive discussion of any of Barry's "qualifications" to hold the office he currently enjoys, I think that the race card was used not only to advance his political rise and stymie opposition to an "Obama" candidacy, but that it was planned in advance that he would eventually be outed, with a hoped-for racial strife explosion and even possibly CWII being a result, and that whatever mileage could be gotten out of destructive policies as long as he could stave off the truth and stay in office would be simply gravy, adding to the destructive effect.

I also believe the foregoing may merit a Nut Job Conspiracy Theory label.

Judge Napolitano yells all the time though, we hear you Judge, no need to yell! Jeanine Pirro yells all the time too. And yes to Megyn and the speed talking. My 80 yr. old mother watches her and can’t comprehend most of what she says since she says it too fast, and my mother is not senile or anything.

I agree about her being a lightweight, too. She talks over all of her guests and always has to repeat what they say or whatever she’s reporting on she feels the need to repeat things as if she needs to explain it to we the stupid. Very annoying, 2 hours of her is way too much! It’s a toss up between her and O’Reilly as to who has the bigger ego.

You raised some valid concerns. You could be right. However, I don’t give Soros et al quite *that* much credit. I believe Obama was chosen because he is the most malleable [in the right hands—i.e.: they have to be hands capable of destroying him, as Soros’ hands are]. It was thought the election itself would put the issue to bed. Once Obama’s installed in the Oval Office, he’s the POTUS, right? They really believed we’d move on to other things.

When that failed, they brought out the Short Form. You can tell by the way they presented it that they intended it to be the end all be all. His flying monkeys said it was all there would ever be—that HI couldn’t legally produce anything more.

Trump screwed them so bad. They had all the rest of us where they wanted us—w purportedly ‘no standing’; what a crock. But Trump gave the issue air time, and it caught on like a prairie fire in a drought. You can believe they panicked. This was not their script.

Hence a rush-job “abstract”. Personally, I am convinced they never meant for the online copy w layers to get out. They wanted to present the physical item to the press, and that would be that. Somebody posted the wrong file, however, and the damage was done.

We still don’t know what’s on the original ‘birth records’. We know they’re at least half, probably mostly handwritten. Two of the only witnesses to actually set eyes on them described them that way. Something very damaging is on them. I do believe, as was mentioned above, that the dominoes are already falling. It’s just a matter of time.

As for riots, put me in the skeptic corner. They could muster some action in limited parts of a few major urban areas. That’s the extent of it. All that would do is galvanize sentiment against Obama AND the Dems. Lose/lose, no matter how you slice it.

Or so I see it, fwiw.
