    Donald Trump’s transition team is reportedly considering Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Sheriff David Clarke and outgoing Maricopa County, Arizona, Sheriff Joe Arpaio as possible nominees to head up the Department of Homeland Security. Clarke has made a name for himself as a Fox News pundit and avid supporter of the gun lobby, using his platform in the media to attack Black Lives Matter, which he describes as a lawless, “subversive” and potentially ISIS-linked group composed of “black slime” that must be “eradicated,” and to champion the cause of anti-government militants, whom he praises as patriots. When white supremacists murdered six people...

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said there are still some questions about how police and prosecutors use the identity theft laws,...

    Transcript @18:50: Mike Zullo: The press conference was three days away and the 9 code was still not resolved in my mind and we needed to get verification. For two feverish days Jerry Corsi sent his associate and this woman stayed in the lobby of the CDC (in Atlanta) for eight hours a day for two days trying to get the answer to this question. On the third day it was about two and a half hours before the press conference was going to go at that point in time the 9 code at issue was NOT going to be...

    MSNBC ^ | May 8, 2014 | Alex Wagner interviews Randy Murray
    Transcript @ 5:00 Randy Murray: In the movie you see that when the Dept. of Justice investigates him he goes out and arrests a bunch of hookers...he has posse members on ponies riding around arresting hookers on Van Buren. The news covers that! It's much more interesting that a boring federal investigation! Yet how do you resist that? You can't resist that unless you bring back the fairness doctrine, unless we demand our news be more balanced, be more fair demand to know the full story, not just the fluff...not just the cops on horses stories. Alex Wagner: I will...

    Appearing on FOX News with Neil Cavuto, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, known to many as the “toughest sheriff in America,” explained why Obama’s claim that 2 million illegal aliens have been deported under his administration is not true. Sheriff Joe says that there is clear evidence, based on his experience and a survey he commissioned You can play around with statistics. I always had a feeling that a lot of these people put on hold, turned over to I.C.E. (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), really were not being deported. I did a survey the last three months and found out that...

    Carl Gallups @ 0:10: I talked with Mike Zullo yesterday and he assures me...that major media is heavily involved...they are involved in this criminal case for certain...and will be released very soon. It was good to get confirmation of the names of the people involved in the media...big, big, big names. This is going to be huge. So this is not going to go unnoticed. It is not going to go unreported like the last couple of conferences that Sheriff Arpaio did on the birth certificate where major media knew about it and showed up but would not report it....

    Republican congressional hopeful Bob Barr picked up the endorsement of Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio Thursday and criticized a key part of the House GOP blueprint for overhauling the nation’s immigration laws. “He was a great U.S. attorney, a great congressman,” Arpaio said. “That is why I am here to help him.” A former Libertarian presidential candidate, Barr is competing in a crowded Republican primary to replace U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey in Georgia’s 11th congressional district. Barr called Arpaio an “international spokesman for good, solid, tough law enforcement.”

    Dear Orly: I have been in daily contact with Detective Lieutenant Mike Zullo from the Sheriff Joe Arpaio Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office Obama Fraud Investigation – sometimes twice daily. I’m sure you also might have heard that Lt. Zullo is preparing to release his some evidence that will truly be universe-shattering, and the knowledge we have is truly something you’re not going to be ready for. This will absolutely, definitely change the eligibility landscape by 10,000%. Mike has asked me to communicate with you that the new evidence – which, let me tell you, is so all-encompassingly gigantic, so incredibly...

    ACLU blasts Arpaio's 'publicity stunt' The controversial sheriff who considers himself "America's toughest" is trying to make jails in Arizona's Maricopa County more patriotic, with the national anthem played regularly—and harsh punishments for inmates who desecrate the US flags that hang in each cell. Sheriff Joe Arpaio says inmates who mess with the flag are being put on a diet of nothing but bread and water twice a day, Fox reports. The flag-trashers get a week of bread and water for a first offense and 10 days for a second. "These inmates have destroyed the American flag that was placed...

    In Phoenix, more than 200 veteran inmates have been told they will be moving to a segregated wing of the Maricopa County Jail. During a press conference today, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio formally announced his plan to house approximately 250 veteran inmates together, in a housing unit that dons “patriotic décor” and features special behavioral programming aimed at dealing with symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD continues to plague military veterans returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan – and for incarcerated veterans, coping with the disorder without the help of friends or family can be even...
