    “THE PUBLIC HAS NEVER SEEN AN ORIGINAL DOCUMENT”For the second consecutive week, Obama birth certificate investigator Mike Zullo was Carl Gallups’s featured guest on the “Freedom Friday” show to discuss how a “computer-generated forgery” came to be posted on the White House website in 2011 allegedly representing Barack Hussein Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate. Gallups said that Media Matters may actually “have helped us,” considering the comments appearing below its article, which characterizes Zullo’s revelations as a “far-right conspiracy theory.” “It may be starting to backfire on them,” Zullo said of left-leaning media which has portrayed the investigational findings of his...

    Demoralized law enforcement officers in Arizona’s most populous county are leaving in droves while a controversial police monitor gets millions of taxpayer dollars to scrutinize their agency over allegations of racial discrimination, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. Maricopa County is paying a politically-connected firm called Warshaw and Associates big bucks to reprimand the sheriff’s department for immigration enforcement as permitted by key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court. So far, the county has paid Warshaw $10.9 million to oversee the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), a force of about 700 deputies. The arrangement,...

    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....

    Judicial Watch ^ | July 17, 2017
    Days after Judicial Watch exposed a new policy banning Phoenix police from contacting the feds after arresting illegal aliens, alarming pressure on the city council and chief of police has forced officials in Arizona’s largest city to postpone the order. Crafted at a Hispanic advisory committee that promotes open borders, the policy also prohibits officers from asking about suspects’ immigration status. The new policy’s two principle measures violate key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and leave the city vulnerable to costly lawsuits. In the aftermath of Judicial Watch’s story, which included a copy of...
  • Arizona sheriff to shut down famed Tent City jails complex

    Associated Press ^ | Apr 4, 2017 5:59 PM EDT | Jacques Billeaud
    Maricopa County’s new sheriff announced Tuesday that he’s shutting down a complex of jail tents that helped make his predecessor, Joe Arpaio, a national law enforcement figure. Paul Penzone said at a news conference that the nearly 24-year-old Tent City complex will be closing in 45 to 60 days. Arpaio opened the complex in August 1993 as a way of easing jail overcrowding. The barbed-wire-surrounded compound was part of a broader campaign by Arpaio to enact get-tough measures in his jails, such as banning cigarettes, creating inmate chain gangs and dressing them in old-time striped prison uniforms. Closing Tent City...

    PHOENIX - Federal immigration officials are ripping Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy on releasing undocumented immigrants from his jails, labeling it an "immediate, dangerous change." "MCSO has implemented a policy which will undoubtedly result in dangerous criminal aliens being released to the street to re-victimize the innocent citizens of that community," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Yasmeen Pitts O'Keefe said Saturday in a prepared statement. "Additionally, the new policy puts ICE officers at a higher risk as more fugitive operations teams will need to arrest criminal aliens outside of the secure confines of the county jail." Penzone...

    Donald Trump lavished praise on former Arizona governor Jan Brewer (R) at a Saturday afternoon rally, asking her to stand and be recognized by his crowd of several thousand. "She's an amazing person," Trump said, as Brewer stood in a small penned-off area for VIPs. "And, you know, it's not nice to say about a woman, but you are tough. Aren't you? Huh? She is tough. She's smart." When asked why it is "not nice" to say that a woman is tough, Trump's spokeswoman forwarded this comment from him: "She's tough and she's smart and she was a great Governor...

    A group of Arizona Republicans are vowing to vote for anyone but U.S. Sen. John McCain in this year's GOP senate primary. The Republican Party of Maricopa County said Sunday that precinct committeemen approved a resolution to support another candidate. Maricopa County Chairman Tyler Bowyer said in a statement that the senator's recent vote to increase the national debt while fully funding Planned Parenthood shows he is more aligned with President Barack Obama than Arizona voters.

    Judge says amnesty ‘arguably crosses the line’Sheriff Joe Arpaio can’t sue the Obama administration to stop the president’s deportation amnesty, a federal appeals court ruled Friday in a decision saying it was too tenuous to try to argue that the amnesty will entice other illegal immigrants to try to make the crossing. The ruling marks a legal victory for Homeland Security — albeit a narrow one, because the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia didn’t reach the actual substance of the president’s tentative amnesty program, instead saying the Maricopa County, Ariz., sheriff didn’t prove he was...

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a hated figure among the illegal alien advocates, but beloved among the rest of us who just want immigration laws enforced. Now he’s announced that he’s sending an armed posse, which is a program he’s been running in Arizona for years, to patrol a U.S. Army Reserve Center. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is responding to a written request by a local U.S. Army official to provide an extra measure of security at a US Army reserve facility in the wake of last week’s shooting rampage in Tennessee. An Army Terrorism Liaison Officer says due to...

    The Justice Department announced a deal Friday requiring Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio to provide services in Spanish to his jail inmates, settling part of a two-year-old discrimination complaint the Obama administration filed against the man known as “America’s Sheriff.” Federal authorities will also become permanent overseers for all worksite raids, with the power to demand information about any raids that deputies perform. The Justice Department says it will scrutinize them to make sure they’re following the Constitution. Still to come is a ruling by a court on charges that sheriff’s deputies discriminated in targeting Hispanics for traffic enforcement. But...

    WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact a ruling that struck down anArizona law that denied bail to illegal immigrants charged with certain felonies. The justices rejected an appeal filed by Maricopa County and its controversial sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Three of the court's conservative justices, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, said they would have heard the case. Four of the nine justices must agree to hear a case for the court to take it up. The court's action means the October 2014 ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said the 2006 law is unconstitutional, is the final word in the...
