Sheriff Joe Arpaio: Why isn’t he in prison yet?

arpaio_underwear

PHOENIX, Arizona (TMT) Blowhard media attention whore Joe Arpaio, Sheriff of Maricopa County, AZ, has gone over the top once again.

Maricopa County sheriff’s deputies on Wednesday stormed into a county building, seized control of a computer system and threatened to arrest county employees if they tried to stop them, according to county officials.

County management responded by asking a Maricopa County Superior Court judge for a temporary restraining order against the Sheriff’s Office.

The system, which provides access to law-enforcement databases, is the subject of a lawsuit between the Sheriff’s Office and the Board of Supervisors.

Later, Sheriff’s Deputy David Hendershott boasted that he would rather go to jail than reveal the password to the systems which Arpaio’s band of thugs illegally seized.

Hendershott said he could not reveal the password under federal law. And if he goes to jail: “I bet I get a pretty decent place. Something with a view of the dump.”

It’s high time that Arpaio and his Southwest Mafia were put out of business permanently.  Numerous elected officials have called for Federal Investigation into Arpaio’s highly illegal and unconstitutional strong-arm tactics against Arizona’s citizenry.

One only has to wonder what control the self-styled “America’s Sheriff” weilds against those in higher authority.

Comments from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office were not even sought, since they’d be lies anyway.

Darrell “Shifty” Powers

I haven’t been keeping up on things recently, but I was forwarded this earlier today.

We’re hearing a lot today about big splashy memorial services.

I want a nationwide memorial service for Darrell “Shifty” Powers.


Shifty volunteered for the airborne in WWII and served with Easy Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, part of the 101st Airborne Infantry. If you’ve seen Band of Brothers on HBO or the History Channel, you know Shifty. His character appears in all 10 episodes, and Shifty himself is interviewed in several of them.

I met Shifty in the Philadelphia airport several years ago. I didn’t know who he was at the time. I just saw an elderly gentleman having trouble reading his ticket. I offered to help, assured him that he was at the right gate, and noticed the “Screaming Eagle”, the symbol of the 101st Airborne, on his hat.

Making conversation, I asked him if he’d been in the 101st Airborne or if his son was serving. He said quietly that he had been in the 101st. I thanked him for his service, then asked him when he served, and how many jumps he made.

Quietly and humbly, he said “Well, I guess I signed up in 1941 or so, and was in until sometime in 1945 . . . ” at which point my heart skipped.

At that point, again, very humbly, he said “I made the 5 training jumps at Toccoa, and then jumped into Normandy . . . . do you know where Normandy is?” At this point my heart stopped.

I told him yes, I know exactly where Normandy was, and I know what D-Day was. At that point he said “I also made a second jump into Holland , into Arnhem .” I was standing with a genuine war hero . . . . and then I realized that it was June, just after the anniversary of D-Day.

I asked Shifty if he was on his way back from France , and he said “Yes. And it’s real sad because these days so few of the guys are left, and those that are, lots of them can’t make the trip.” My heart was in my throat and I didn’t know what to say.

I helped Shifty get onto the plane and then realized he was back in Coach, while I was in First Class. I sent the flight attendant back to get him and said that I wanted to switch seats. When Shifty came forward, I got up out of the seat and told him I wanted him to have it, that I’d take his in coach.

He said “No, son, you enjoy that seat. Just knowing that there are still some who remember what we did and still care is enough to make an old man very happy.” His eyes were filling up as he said it. And mine are brimming up now as I write this.

Shifty died on June 17, 2009 after fighting cancer.

There was no parade.

No big event in Staples Center .

No wall to wall back to back 24×7 news coverage.

No weeping fans on television.

And that’s not right.

Let’s give Shifty his own Memorial Service, online, in our own quiet way.

Rest in peace, Shifty.


Powers, Darrell C..: Awarded two Bronze Stars, Presidential Unit Citation, Combat Infantry Badge, and Expert Rifleman Badge. Discharged in 1945. Moved to California becoming a mechanist. Then moved back to hometown and worked at Clinchfield Coal Company for 33 years. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_living_Band_of_Brothers_veterans )

Maryland Bans SENDING Text Messages While Driving

Hit ’10’ and ‘2’ on wheel, not cell — baltimoresun.com.

The idiot above is in favor of the new Maryland ‘Sending’ text ban, which goes into effect October 1st.  Probably one of these guys who can’t piss and fart at the same time.  He does bring up some good questions about enforcement, so give it a look.  More information can be found about it here.

Do NOT Allow Police to Intimidate You!  EVER!

Is it a good idea to text and drive?  Surely not, at least not for most people.  I’ve seen  morons drive, and frankly it amazes me that they can pull that off without crashing every time out.  It’s also not a good idea to drive and:

  • Apply makeup
  • Shave – ANYTHING
  • TALK on your cellphone (see Lloyd’s take on this here)
  • Search your iPod
  • Scramble for the lit cigarette you dropped
  • Change the DVD (don’t get me started on THAT) for the idiots in the back seat
  • Finger your butthole
  • Finger someone else’s butthole
  • Search for wet-naps re: the last two items

Do we legislate against these activities?  Not in Maryland.  I think Texas or Arizona do have butthole legislation, however.  Sadly, this isn’t about whether you CAN safely accomplish these activities or not.  It’s about your freedom, and they’re being oppressed in a HUGE way with this moronic law.

As with most legislation which infringes on our rights and liberties, this one is sure to square off Police vs Citizens for the sole reason that it’s considered a ‘Primary’ offense.

That means Continue reading

No, you didn’t.

Editor’s Note:

Either I’m getting senile, overmedicating, or WordPress fucked up.  Either way, I dunno what happened, but here’s what I wrote on the inauguration, for what it’s worth.

Funny to note, it’s all still valid and proving more and more true with each passing day.  Nice, that.

There’s history in the air in Washington, DC today.  The National Mall is the official site for the world’s largest mutual masturbation session ever.  At 12:01PM today, the crowd ejaculated all over each other, not for the first time, and evidently not for the last.  While all you good people are busy sucking each others’ dick over the ascension of “The Messiah of Hype”, let’s examine a couple issues that are still outstanding: Continue reading

More Freedoms Threatened as Obama Eyes a Cyber Czar

cyber

Excellent blog I ran across, worthy of reposting.  The original is here.

The Censorship of the ‘Net, Coming Soon to an IP near you

First, create the problem by having your thugs attack America. They can attack the physical, like the WTC and the Pentagon on 9/11 or attack cyberspace, creating a need to be saved from those “evildoers.”

Deliberately postpone computer and software anti-virus updates at various US agencies, like the FBI and DHS, so hackers and crackers from China and Israel can play hell with our cyber infrastructure.

Then, have your media shills at CNN and FOX repeat ad nauseam that the problem is coming from Muslim types who are intent on destroying America, because they hate our freedoms or some other BS.

Next, drive your message home, like the thugs did when they put military grade Anthrax into the mail, scaring the hell out of millions and sickening and killing some Americans.

Propose to fix the problem you created by shredding the Bill of Rights and turning America into a quasi-police state.

Get ready to take out the last pure form of unadulterated news available, the Internet.

One more 9/11 on American soil, either a physical attack or one on cyberspace, brought to you by the same homicidal maniacs that pulled off 9/11 and we can say goodbye to the Internet.
We’ll be saved by the “Thought Crime Act,” now sitting on Senator Joe Lieberman’s (Likud Party-Israel) desk. The act will be put forth to save us the same way the liberty shredding Patriot Act saved us from ourselves, by declaring war on Americans.

We all know who’s really behind 9/11 and it wasn’t some aging and feeble Muslim, sitting in a cave in Afghanistan, waiting for his dialysis machine.

Problems at the Carnival

The CSIS report on cyber security has hit the ground running. We have problems, people. Serious, serious problems. Just ask CNN. Every day our national security gets compromised by cyber criminals, foreign intelligence operatives, and who knows who else.

What!?!

Yes, my friends. Woe. Woe! Obama must do something right away, like appoint a Cyber Czar and spend taxpayer money creating a new agency. STAT! It’s an e m e r g e n c y.
The 96-page “Securing Cyberspace for the 44th Presidency” report was made public at the start of the week and offers numerous ideas and recommendations for government officials who are growing more concerned about the possibility of cyberwarfare.

“The United States must treat cybersecurity as one of the most important national security challenges it faces,” according to the report. It adds that the current Bush administration’s Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative “good but not sufficient” and the use of computers as attack tools creates “a strategic issue on par with weapons of mass destruction and global jihad.”

Furthermore, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has not been able to properly secure U.S. government computers from cyber attacks, and should no longer have the responsibility. DHS isn’t suited to handle technology issues, as the agency uses “archaic” methods that cannot keep up with new attacks.

At least five members of Obama’s transition team helped contribute to the report, and his staff is eager to see how they can better protect the United States from cyber attacks.

DHS will likely be strengthened once Obama takes office, but even so, it’s not recommended the agency continue to have the lead in cyber security, as it “is not the agency to lead in a conflict with foreign intelligence agencies or militaries, or even well organized international cyber criminals.”

In an ideal scenario, the new office would combine the Joint Inter-Agency Cyber Task Force and DHS National Center for Cybersecurity while recruiting cyber security experts to help create new levels of defense.

Now, just a small sampling of CSIS board of trustees members include some familiar names like Dick Armitage, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Bill Frist, Henry Kissinger, Brent Scowcroft. This is clearly an arm of the octopus. These people know full well that our government has long since been infiltrated by foreign operatives, aka their friends and colleagues. They know full well that they at best ignored the problem they so shrilly wave their arms about today, now that it has grown massively out of control. They know that DHS, under the dual national Michael Chertoff, never had any intention of protection US national security. This is just Hegelian problem-reaction-solution stuff.

Anyone who seriously wants to help this country can start by weeding out all the dual nationals and foreign operatives who brazenly work to destroy America. And I would suggest that’s not about to happen, unfortunately, much as I would wish otherwise.

By polluting and compromising our national interest, our so called leaders have truly made a mess of the whole world; since no country can operate safely in an environment where other nations’ interests and motives remain hidden and entwined, unless of course they spy. Yes, spying has always existed, but securely lashing the US national interest to Israel’s has resulted in an escalation of security breaches because it destabilizes our position vis a vis the rest of the world. We must be like dealing with Sybil. And this has been going on for years and years, but now, all of a sudden, surprising us no end, practically inconceivable, you are to consider that it is an emergency that our security has been compromised. Yes! No shit! Thanks for the tip! And you can just imagine what sorts of fixes they have in mind, which of course will need to be rammed through as quickly as possible a la the Patriot Act, especially if we suffer some kind of terrorist attack, as has been forecast, and during which the ride will probably not withstand the tremendous spin forces.

Meanwhile, we’re just going to keep going around and around on this carnival ride until somebody down there throws some sand in the gear box or sticks a banana in the exhaust or tackles the operator, or something. God help us.

Welcome to The Ministry of Love

1984-movie-military_a

Tom Zoellner recently wrote an excellent article on the appointment of Janet Napolitano as Minister of The Ministry of Homeland Security under the Obama Regime, and her disturbing connections to National Douchenozzle, Joe Arpaio.

If you think we’re not headed to a police state, RFID chipping, presenting papers at checkpoints and a whisper away from The Thought Police and The Ministry of Love, you’re not paying attention.

This sure is change, yes indeedy.  Change which makes me stock up on my canned goods.
