  • Mike Pence Has A Fever And The Only Prescription Is More … Joe Arpaio

    Lotta agita over this on both sides of political media today, I think because Pence is still held to a slightly higher standard than Trump is. He spent most of his career as a dogmatic conservative and even endorsed Ted Cruz (verrrry reluctantly) over Trump before the Indiana primary in 2016. He gets the same benefit of the doubt from the politerati that Kellyanne Conway does: He and she are old hands in D.C. and therefore they’re supposed to “know better.” Trump calling a guy a champion of the rule of law who once referred to his own prison as...

    Dissenting judge on panel worries ruling could foster ‘inappropriate… political attacks’ on presidencyA federal appeals court said this week it will appoint a lawyer to argue that former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s contempt of court conviction should remain on his record despite President Trump’s pardon. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that since the federal Justice Department is supporting both the pardon and Mr. Arpaio’s request to have his conviction stricken, someone else needs to argue the other side. Mr. Arpaio argues that the pardon came before he had a chance to appeal his conviction, and even before...
  • Trump grants pardon to former Bush official; some say he is using the law as a political tool

    Washington Post ^ | April 13, 2018 | Philip Rucker, Josh Dawsey and Matt Zapotosky
    In his decision Friday to pardon a former Bush administration official convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice, President Trump telegraphed his open hostility to the criminal justice system and his desire to use the power of the presidency as a personal political tool. As with his controversial pardon last year of a former Arizona county sheriff, Joe Arpaio, who had been held in contempt of court, Trump effectively thumbed his nose at the judiciary by pardoning I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby. The Justice Department was not involved in either case, officials said.

    Arizona’s Republican U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake has announced he’s not running for reelection, so several candidates have jumped into the open race to replace him. There are currently three frontrunners. GOP Rep. Martha McSally, a combat pilot who served in the U.S. Air Force, former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and former Arizona State Senator Kelli Ward. Ward made a name for herself launching an unsuccessful conservative challenge to Sen. John McCain in 2016.McSally is the darling of the GOP establishment. She was elected to Congress in 2014, representing a swing district seat formerly held by Gabrielle Giffords. Senate Majority...

    Joe Arpaio, the infamous former sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., announced on Tuesday that he is running for the Senate seat soon to be left open by retiring Republican senator Jeff Flake. Before Arpaio entered the race, the dynamics of the GOP primary seemed straightforward enough: In the populist lane was Kelli Ward, who enjoyed endorsements from the likes of Steve Bannon and Sean Hannity; Representative Martha McSally was set to fill the other lane, earning the support of Mitch McConnell and his political allies. If a third candidate entered, it was expected to be former state GOP chairman...

    An Arizona jury has refused to award damages against former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio at a civil trial for bringing a since-dismissed criminal case against one of Sen. Jeff Flake's sons in the heat-exhaustion deaths of 21 dogs. Jurors deliberated nearly an hour before ruling late Thursday against Austin Flake and his then-wife Logan Brown in their malicious-prosecution lawsuit stemming from Arpaio's investigation into the heat-exhaustion deaths of 21 dogs at a kennel operated by Flake's in-laws. Flake and Brown, who were in college at the time, were caring for the dogs while the in-laws were out of town.

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 24, 2017
    Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he's still considering a Senate campaign in Arizona following the decision by incumbent Republican Sen. Jeff Flake not to seek re-election. Arpaio, who in August became the first person pardoned by President Trump after he was convicted of misdemeanor contempt, previously said he was considering a primary challenge against Flake. "It's still out there, I haven't made a decision," he told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday, shortly after Flake's announcement. The former sheriff said he met twice recently with Steve Bannon, the former White House chief strategist who has sought to recruit anti-establishment...

    Keith Olbermann's friends and family may want to check on him after a particularly troubling Twitter meltdown. The corybantic ravings and fanatical delusions displayed in his tweets are cause for alarm. His particular frantic symptoms are familiar to anyone who has read Old Yeller. Agitation, salivation, foaming at the mouth, confusion, hallucination, and extreme anxiety are sure signs of a rabies infection -- and Olbermann appears to be in the late stages. The confusion stage of the disease started with this tweet about Trump not declaring the flooding in Texas a national disaster fast enough, even though a president must...

    The US Department of Justice's pardon office did not review former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio's pardon, a DOJ official confirmed to BuzzFeed News late Friday. It didn't have to. The US Constitution gives the president broad power to issue pardons and commute sentences, and there is no law requiring the president to consult with the Justice Department. President Trump is not the first president to issue a pardon that didn't go through DOJ ...

    After receiving President Trump's first pardon, Joe Arpaio's plans have gone from possible prison to book-writing, speeches and potentially another run for office in Arizona, with Sen. Jeff Flake's seat one opportunity he is eyeing. The former Maricopa County sheriff told the Washington Examiner he's upset at negative reaction to the Friday pardon, and that he feels Republican politicians are insufficiently supportive of the president, who he calls a great man. "I could run for mayor, I could run for legislator, I could run for Senate," Arpaio said Monday. One particular race, however, is likely to gain significant attention: the...

    Chelsea Clinton really stepped in it on Saturday when she tweeted a Washington Post essay from someone who spent a year in Joe Arpaio’s infamous Maricopa County jail. Only problem was, Clinton tweeted the story headline without quotes, making it read as if she was saying that she spent a year in Arpaio’s jail. “The year I spent in Joe Arpaio’s tent jail was hell. He should never walk free,” the tweet said with a link to the Post essay. The essay details the horrors that Francisco Chairez faced while he was in Arpaio’s jail for a drunk driving conviction....

    When Univision anchor Jorge Ramos agreed to be a guest on Sunday's State Of The Union on CNN, I don't think he expected the race card pushback he would receive at the hands of Arizona State Senator Steve Montenegro. During the debate over President Donald Trump's pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Ramos pulled out his stock set of liberal clichés to recite which were effortlessly mocked and swatted aside by Montenegro. At the end of the 12 minute segment, Ramos appeared to be quite irked as you can see.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio spoke with Neil Cavuto from FOX Business Network on Wednesday after the Trump rally Tuesday in Phoenix, Arizona. On Tuesday President Trump hinted he will pardon the former sheriff for charges that stem from “defying a state judge’s order to stop traffic patrols targeting suspected undocumented immigrants.” The 85 year-old Arpaio is facing possible time in jail. Sheriff Joe defended and praised his friend President Donald Trump and lashed out at the far left hacks who put him through hell for several years in a political witch hunt.
