" I spoke with neo-Nazis J.T. Ready and "Vito Lombardi," both of whom were throwing up the sieg heil sign as they verbally attacked the marchers passing by on Durango Street. They told me that Joe had stopped by earlier and spoken with each of them. Ready said Arpaio called him by his initials "J.T.," and Lombardi bragged of getting a photo with the sheriff. "
"If our eyes are to be believed, why is a top law enforcement official giving the time of day to a bunch of neo-Nazis, much less photo ops and info on protesters? Not that Joe hasn't hobnobbed with goosesteppers before. Back in 2008, Sheriff Joe spoke before a crowd of United for a Sovereign America members. U.S.A. has allowed neo-Nazis to join its group, and on the evening Joe spoke, old-time Arizona neo-Nazi Elton Hall was present, cheering him on.
Is Arpaio so desperate for attention and support that he needs Hitler-worshippers in his camp? When I challenged Joe on meeting with U.S.A. back in 2008, he blustered that he talks to "everybody." I got the same response from his top flack Lisa Allen. Seems there's no shame in their game. Even when it comes to Arpaio rubbing shoulders with swastika-lovers."
so why would the right wing adore a sheriff who pals around with neo-nazis?

and you forgot
"While the sovereign citizens movement has a history of racism and violence, Police Chief John Duval now says that he doesn't actually believe the Free State Project or Occupy New Hampshire are domestic terror threats. "I wish I would have worded things different in retrospect," he says. "I understand why their eyebrows are raised about that." He chalks up the wording to the limitations of writing a detailed proposal in only three pages and says it was meant to refer to the "unpredictable nature of unpredictable people who attach themselves to otherwise lawful situations."
some of the sovereign citizen lunatic ideas
"Duval says his department needs the vehicle to replace a 1981 Air Force Peacekeeper that's fallen into disrepair. Concord's population is just over 40,000, but as a capital city in the state that hosts the first-in-the-nation presidential primaries, Duval doesn't want to rule out the possibility of an attack like the Boston Marathon bombing."
"Kim Murdoch, president of the nonprofit Concord Public Safety Foundation, urged the council to accept the grant.
“The acquisition of this asset will not transform the Concord Police Department into a military organization any more than the surplus Air Force Peacekeeper armored vehicle did a decade ago,” she said.“The Peacekeeper is now 32 years old and in need of replacement.”
so the grant would replace their existing armored vehicle with a new one and libertarians got their panties in a wad based on the wording of the grant application.
they will get over it

Donald Trump the teabagger with a red skunk on his head:
More more on the tea bagger scum
MICHAEL GORMLEY 3 hours ago .ALBANY, N.Y.(AP)— New York's attorney general sued Donald Trump for $40 million Saturday, saying the real estate mogul helped run a phony "Trump University" that promised to make students rich but instead steered them into expensive and mostly useless seminars, and even failed to deliver promised apprenticeships.

more right wing garbage as membership requirements were put in place 9/1/2005
"A veterans’ post or organization must meet the following requirements to be exempt under IRC §501(c)(19):
It must be organized in the United States or any of its possessions.
At least 75% of the organization's members are present or former members of the United States Armed Forces (veterans);
Of the remaining 25%, substantially all (90%) must be cadets who are students in a college or university R.O.T.C. program or at an Armed Services academy, or spouses, widows, widowers, ancestors, or lineal descendants of veterans or cadets; and
No more than 2.5% of the total membership may consist of individuals who are not veterans, cadets, spouses, widows, widowers, ancestors, or lineal descendants of veterans or cadets."
so if they want the tax exemption they have to show the veterans group is really mainly veterans.
that is the only change from 2005

"The indictment reads:
"Soon after `terminating' the unauthorized employees in April 2011, DFC began rehiring many of the same individuals under new identities.
"In many instances, DFC's managers affirmatively assisted the employees in procuring identification documents and other personal identifiers that belonged to third parties (e.g., supplying employees with names, social security cards and numbers, and/or driver's licenses that belonged to others) to facilitate the rehiring "
The indictment details several incidents where managers allegedly helped and/or approved of unauthorized employees using the identities of others to work, sometimes going so far as to procure false identities and create false documents.
In one case, two managers supposedly took a photo of a wannabe worker, "electronically sending the picture to a document vendor."
Shortly afterward, the vendor delivered a fake driver's license and fake Social Security Card to a manager's home. The manager and the worker then traveled to an unnamed "professional employer organization," where federal I-9 forms and other employment forms were filled out under the assumed name."
"Often there is evidence in these local cases pointing to possible culpability on the part of the employer. But Maricopa County Sheriff's Office investigators have stated under oath that they do not investigate employers, only the workers, who are arrested whenever Sheriff Joe Arpaio does a worksite raid."
"The MCSO and Danny's Family Car Wash have significant ties. Danny's is a major sponsor of the MCSO Memorial Fund for fallen officers, and has done several charity carwashes for the organization over the years.
The Memorial Fund's website has a gallery of photos featuring Danny's workers, MCSO vehicles, and sheriff's office deputies participating in fundraisers. The site offers a "thank you" to a list of sponsors, with a logo for Danny's prominently displayed."
so the self proclaimed toughest sheriff does not want to investigate employers who break State laws.
particularly ones who run charity carwashes for his buddies.

"Over the weekend, the 2nd most heavily subsidized farmer in Congress – and one of the largest subsidy recipients in Tennessee history – said Washington should not “steal” from taxpayers to support food assistance like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)– better known as food stamps.
At an appearance at a Holiday Inn in Memphis, Rep Fincher said:
The role of citizens, of Christians, of humanity is to take care of each other, but not for Washington to steal from those in the country and give to others in the country."
"USDA data collected in EWG’s 2013 farm subsidy database update -- going live tomorrow --shows that Fincher collected a staggering $3.48 million in “our” money from 1999 to 2012. In 2012 alone, the congressman was cut a government check for a $70,000 direct payment. Direct payments are issued automatically, regardless of need, and go predominantly to the largest, most profitable farm operations in the country.
Fincher’s $70,000 farm subsidy haul in 2012 dwarfs the average 2012 SNAP benefit in Tennessee of $1,586.40, and it is nearly double of Tennessee’s median household income. After voting to cut SNAP by more than $20 billion, Fincher joined his colleagues to support a proposal to expand crop insurance subsidies by $9 billion over the next 10 years.
Keep in mind that while SNAP benefits are restricted to families whose income is below specified limits, crop insurance subsidies have no such limitations. Some farmers annually receive more than $1 million each in premium support, and more than 10,000 annually collect more than $100,000 each in insurance subsidies. A typical family getting by on SNAP benefits can scarcely even imagine numbers like that.
When Fincher was running for office in the Tea Party-influenced 2010 election, Fincher told the Memphis Commercial Appeal on June 6, 2010:
Do we need farm program reform? Absolutely.
Now we know what he meant.
number one congressman.
"LaMalfa's family farm received $4.69 million of federal subsidies between 1995 and 2010, according to the Environmental Working Group, an organization that tallies federal farm aid."
"Stiglich said it's hypocritical for a fellow Republican to receive federal farm aid, especially because LaMalfa has billed himself as a leader in the fight against expensive government entitlement programs.
"When it meets his personal interest, it's not a big entitlement," Stiglich said."
when will the right wing demand means testing for farm welfare?
#52186 Aug 25, 2013
and again you missed
"Sherrill adds that other factors contributed, such as the recession hitting around the same time as the grant program and trainees having to compete with unemployed, skilled tradesmen looking for new work.
The GAO suggests in the report that the Labor Department find ways to improve job training associated with emerging industries like green tech in the future.
#52187 Aug 25, 2013
author of the article.
for what it is worth
"Darren M Meade attempted to extort me in October 2011, his success in persuading Perry Chiaramonte to print fiction as fact is a testament to his criminal abilities to follow through with the threats when I did not pay the monies demanded of me.
Immediately after the defamatory article was published, Perry Chiaramonte was caught in an electronic sting operation communicating with Det. John B. Richter (Star No. 20768), of the Chicago Police Dept. Richter is the brother of Tracey, my ex-wife who is serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for Murder in the First Degree.(Details in video)"
why does Fox hire such people?
then again Fox often reports fiction as fact.

March on Washington: The day that changed history
Readers share their experiences at the March on Washington 50 years ago
FREEdom! FREEdom! FREEdom!
On a humid August day 50 years ago, they all felt a tug to go.
Whether because of disgust over the police treatment of peaceful demonstrators in the South or a sense of moral obligation or civic duty, many left small children with relatives and boarded buses or crammed in cars to head to Washington, D.C., for what would become one of the most important gatherings in history. They didn't know if they'd face violence or arrests on the Washington Mall, but they had to be there. All say the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom touched their lives in a special way and in some cases influenced their careers or actions in years to come.
On Aug. 28, 1963, I marched on Washington responding to Dr. King's call for support of the civil rights movement. I was a 35-year-old minister of the United Church of Christ in East Hartford, Conn., and had met Dr. King the previous spring at a clergy gathering in Hartford.
I knew I had to go to Washington. I found my way to the Washington Monument and fell in line for the march. It was a very warm late summer day as I walked arm-in-arm with a rabbi and a Catholic nun. About halfway along the mall, near the reflecting pool, I heard my name being called from behind. Looking back I saw my cousin John from Ithaca, N.Y., bounding toward me. We embraced enthusiastically.
I asked him what moved him to come. "I had seen enough dogs attacking people and police shooting water cannons in Alabama," he replied.
We stopped for lunch by the reflecting pool. Sharing my "brown bag" with John, we sat on the grass listening to Dr. King's speech from the Lincoln Memorial steps. I saw Dr. King again at the Montgomery airport in Alabama some weeks later.
Our group from Hartford were en route to Selma, Ala., over 100 of us. Dr. King greeted us and thanked us for coming as he left for a speaking engagement.

Obama has never had lower numbers than Bush...LOL
Bush's Final Approval Rating: 22 Percent
President Bush will leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in history, according to a new CBS News/New York Times poll showing Mr. Bush's final approval rating at 22 percent.
Seventy-three percent say they disapprove of the way Mr. Bush has handled his job as president over the last eight years.
Mr. Bush's final approval rating is the lowest final rating for an outgoing president since Gallup began asking about presidential approval more than 70 years ago.
take a peek here:
#52192 Aug 25, 2013
"Though he remained skeptical of some of the most extreme ideas being bandied around, he liked talking to people there about the United Nations, the federal government and possible threats to American liberty."
" He began to sell ATF hats riddled with bullet holes and a flare gun, which, he said, could shoot down an "ATF helicopter."
he " was wearing a T-shirt at that time with a picture of Abraham Lincoln and the motto: sic semper tyrannis ('Thus always to tyrants'), the state motto of Virginia and also the words shouted by John Wilkes Booth after he shot Lincoln. On the back, it had a tree with a picture of three blood droplets and the Thomas Jefferson quote, "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
"On April 19, 1995, McVeigh drove the truck to the front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building just as its offices opened for the day. Before arriving, he stopped to light a two minute fuse. At 09:02, a large explosion destroyed the north half of the building. The explosion killed 168 people, including 19 children in the day care center on the second floor, and injured 450 others"
#52193 Aug 25, 2013
"A Fordham University study by Dr. Costas Panagopoulos compared pre-election polling with the results from election day. The study ranked Rasmussen Reports 24th out of 28 polls in accuracy, one slot above Gallup.
An analysis by Nate Silver on FiveThirtyEight, ranked Rasmussen 20th out of 23 pollsters for accuracy in the 2012 elections with an average error of 4.2 points.
After the election, James Rainey of the Los Angeles Times wrote that "Some conservative media outlets used the Rasmussen polling to prop up a narrative in the final days of the campaign that Romney had momentum and a good chance of winning the White House."
"Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. To reach those who have abandoned traditional landline telephones, Rasmussen Reports uses an online survey tool to interview randomly selected participants from a demographically diverse panel."
"Scott Rasmussen no longer works for the polling company that he founded, Rasmussen Reports said in a statement on Thursday. No longer content with putting out polls that critics like Nate Silver have analyzed as consistently right-leaning, Scott Rasmussen will move into Republican punditry at his new Rasmussen Media Group. That means that the man whose polls were once used to support conservative punditry will now do the punditry himself."
"Rasmussen has long claimed to be an independent. But he wrote a book on self-governance, popular among conservatives, and was a guest on a cruise sponsored by The National Review. In 2010, Jonathan Chait called Rasmussen "a right-wing celebrity" in The New Republic. FiveThirtyEight blogger and statistics star Nate Silver found Rasmussen's polls erred in favor of Republicans both in 2010 and in the presidential election of 2012"
"Rasmussen's polls were sometimes valuable to conservative pundits, who could point to them as hard evidence that a bit of conventional wisdom favoring liberals was wrong — that, for example, despite most polls to the contrary, Romney was really winning."
so a republican leaning polling site(over several years)
claims to have the pulse of the people by an online survey and landlines with 500 responses.
#52197 Aug 25, 2013
When Bammy leaves the office he has disgraced, we will all be able to say, "Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last." LOL
#52198 Aug 25, 2013
When Bush left office he had a 22% approval rating !!!!!
The worst in the 70 years when they starting tracking approval ratings.
When you get that low might as well crawl under a rock ! LMAO!
#52199 Aug 25, 2013
and as usual you forgot.
"One possibility is the president is a bit less active in the summer months with Congress out of session for most of August and around the summer holidays. And presidents typically go on vacation themselves during the summer. Also, Americans may pay less attention to the news and what the president is doing during the summer and may be somewhat more reluctant to say they approve without that information."
"In fact, for both Bush and Clinton, their lowest approval averages by month were for June, July, and August."
so tis the season not the person.
Since: Jul 12
#52200 Aug 25, 2013
Hey sniffy, when president Obama leaves office it won't be on tea bag terms, huh racial hating mini dumb ass? President Mrs Clinton is next. She will make tea bags very angry again, but at least Mrs Clinton vis white, dumb ass
#52201 Aug 25, 2013
and again as usual you miss.
"If this is a “bottoming out” phenomenon , he is not in such bad shape. As I have said numerous times, 47% is nowhere near where very unpopular presidents have been"
"Mr. Obama’s 54% approval is solid. And he remains strong among the formerly conservative voters who are NASCAR fans (55%) and Weekly Wal-Mart Shoppers (51%). He also gets majority support from the Creative Class (52%).
" I think that this Fighting Obama is the one we will see after Labor Day. And that Obama is the one who wins."
#52202 Aug 25, 2013
and as usual you missed.
"I'm not opposed to SWAT teams. When used properly -- to defuse an already violent situation, where lives are at risk -- they perform marvelously. I am opposed to using them to raid organic farms in response to nuisance violations, or to storm animal shelters to kill baby deer. Or, more to the point, to serve search warrants on people suspected of consensual drug crimes, the reason for the vast majority of the 100+ SWAT raids conducted each day in America."
so talk to the SWAT team commanders.
and the police chief.
then you have
"Here's Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn, explaining how he will instruct his officers to ignore the state's gun laws:
“My message to my troops is if you see anybody carrying a gun on the streets of Milwaukee, we’ll put them on the ground, take the gun away and then decide whether you have a right to carry it.”
so lets see.
"Inside the white minivan, a 16-year-old boy named Joseph Kane remained in the passenger seat, while his father, Jerry, age 45, stood in front of the police SUV and argued with the officers. There was a tussle, and Jerry Kane pushed Officer Evans into a roadside ditch. The boy quickly emerged from the minivan with a loaded AK-47 and aimed at Evans. The officer put one hand on his pistol, and held the other up to the boy as if to signal "Stop." The boy shot Evans several times and turned his attention to Paudert, who took cover behind the police vehicle.
A package delivery man, exiting the highway at Marker 275, stopped his truck to witness the horrific scene. He called 911, and the alert went out: "Officer down!"
While Paudert was able to fire his pistol seven times, he was outgunned and the police vehicle offered little protection from Joe Kane's assault rifle. The boy chased Paudert around the police SUV, shooting him several times in the back of the head before returning to Evans in the ditch. There, he fired again. The Kanes then rushed to the minivan and pulled away, while Joe continued to shoot at the downed officers.
Another alert went out: "Two officers down!"
According to a preliminary investigation report, Brandon Paudert was struck 11 times and died at the scene; Evans was hit by 14 rounds and died at the hospital."
so if those two fallen officers had seen a gun and
"we’ll put them on the ground, take the gun away and then decide whether you have a right to carry it.”
they would have went home to their families rather than the morgue.
"But based on the available evidence, a reasonable estimate of hard-core sovereign believers today would be 100,000, with another 200,000 just starting out by testing sovereign techniques for resisting everything from speeding tickets to drug charges, for a total of 300,000."
now will all of the 100,000 hard core go to their guns?
so a cop car with an assault rifle might not be overkill.
