Rogue Judge Just Stabbed Trump In Back With What She Did To Secretly DESTROY Pardoned Sheriff Joe

Published

on

Here we go again. Once again an activist rogue judge intent on legislating from the bench has decided to not follow the United States Constitution.

Former Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio received a pardon from President Donald Trump last August, but the judge who found him guilty of criminal contempt is now refusing to erase evidence of his conviction.

A presidential pardon ensures that Sheriff Arpaio is protected from prosecution, and the United States Justice Department had asked Judge Susan Ritchie Bolton to have her rulings vacated from the court so no trace of the judgment exists. But like the good little liberal globalist that she is, she has refused.

The liberal hack judge wrote in her denial that the power to pardon is an executive prerogative of mercy, but what it doesn’t do is modify how judicial records are kept. And that to vacate the ruling, in this case, would run afoul of this important distinction.

Arpaio has vowed to keep fighting, and his legal team has said they will appeal Bolton’s ruling on grounds that she misstated the facts in a previous presidential pardon case involving former President Bill “BJ” Clinton, of course, which she used as legal precedent for this ruling.

AZCental Reports:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio in contempt of federal court, judge rules

Six months after arguments concluded in a case against “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow broke his silence on Friday, filing a series of withering findings with one big conclusion:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is in civil contempt of federal court.

Snow ruled that the Maricopa County lawman and three of his top aides violated an order meant to curtail racial profiling in his agency, according to the ruling issued Friday.

The ruling held Arpaio in contempt on all three potential counts, ending a lengthy proceeding that started a year ago when Snow convened a series of hearings in downtown Phoenix to determine whether Arpaio and his commanders defied Snow’s court orders.

Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan was found in contempt on two counts, and retired Chief Brian Sands and Lt. Joe Sousa each were found in contempt of one.

The ruling set the stage for reforms, costly sanctions and a potential referral for criminal prosecution, although the judge refrained from making any official decisions on those matters yet.

“In short, the Court finds that the Defendants have engaged in multiple acts of misconduct, dishonesty, and bad faith with respect to the Plaintiff class and the protection of its rights,” Snow wrote in the 162-page ruling.

While a milestone, the ruling is largely a formality given the case’s history. Arpaio and Sheridan admitted to violating the judge’s orders before the hearings’ start date but repeatedly insisted that it was due to miscommunication and confusion rather than willful defiance.

The distinction could mean the difference between civil contempt and criminal contempt — or “fix it” remedies compared with outright punishment.

The judge set a May 31 date for a hearing for attorneys to discuss penalties. Shortly thereafter, Snow said, he would issue an order on sanctions and whether he would refer the case for a criminal contempt trial.

3 violations came under judge’s scrutiny

The contempt proceedings were based on three violations that occurred throughout the history of the underlying racial-profiling case: that the Sheriff’s Office failed to turn over video evidence that was required before the trial; that officials continued to enforce immigration law after Snow barred the practice; and that Sheridan failed to quietly collect evidence after the trial, as Snow had ordered him to do.

Attorneys from the American Civil Liberties Union and Covington & Burling represented plaintiffs both in the initial racial-profiling case and contempt hearings.

Arpaio’s “state of mind” served as the primary topic for debate throughout the contempt proceedings, as the evidence left little doubt that his agency failed each order.

The hearings, which started with four days of testimony in April 2015 and resumed with 16 days in the fall, often turned into a much broader discussion focused on the sheriff’s enforcement priorities and whether he was more interested in settling political scores than rooting out the racial profiling that Snow had found in the Sheriff’s Office.

Arpaio’s acknowledgment in April that his attorneys had hired a private detective to investigate Snow’s wife was among the most bizarre moments in the lengthy proceeding. It set the tone for exchanges among Snow and Arpaio, his aides and attorneys that were occasionally pointed and personal.

Two other large topics developed out of the proceedings: what plaintiffs’ attorneys said were worthless internal investigations; and whether the sheriff employed a Seattle-based computer programmer to concoct a conspiracy that would free Arpaio of his legal woes.

In exhaustive detail, Snow agreed with each of the plaintiffs’ allegations, often bolstering his findings with Arpaio’s own words.

In reference to his December 2011 preliminary injunction that banned deputies from detaining individuals because of their immigration status and without state charges, Snow noted that Arpaio was fully aware of the order yet flaunted his decision to defy it.

He cites Arpaio’s reaction in fall 2012, after Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced it no longer would accept undocumented immigrants from the Sheriff’s Office.

At that point, the sheriff announced his “backup plan” to drop off the individuals at Border Patrol facilities instead and boasted that deputies had recently done so for two “suspects.”

Snow found that deputies had detained and turned over to federal authorities at least 157 individuals who had not committed state crimes, in violation of his order.

Snow said both Arpaio and Sheridan made numerous misstatements under oath.

In particular, he noted Arpaio’s testimony about the “Seattle Operation,” a catchall used to refer to the sheriff’s many covert dealings with Seattle-based computer programmer Dennis Montgomery.

Arpaio maintained Montgomery was employed to investigate illegal CIA harvesting of citizens’ financial information, but some of the programmer’s work product indicated another goal.

Montgomery compiled timelines and flow charts that seemed to allege an elaborate conspiracy against the sheriff involving Snow, former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and various other federal officials.

In his testimony April 23, 2015, Arpaio said he never had been involved in an investigation into Snow.

Internal-affairs office in the spotlight

Throughout the proceedings, plaintiffs asserted that the primary function of the Sheriff Office’s internal investigations was to absolve the accused of any wrongdoing. Snow agreed.

The judge highlighted an internal-affairs case in which deputies had been accused of “pocketing” items from investigations.

Although Sheridan initiated a probe into the matter, Snow said, there was a tacit understanding that it would go nowhere.

Sheridan testified that he believed there was no basis for a criminal investigation, that he felt sorry for the human-smuggling unit members and only ordered the investigation to deflect scrutiny from the plaintiffs.

“In short, Sergeant Tennyson’s investigation ended up being what he and Chief Deputy Sheridan intended it to be: a perfunctory whitewash,” Snow concluded.

Snow also found Sheridan had ignored his own conflicts of interest by overseeing a probe into Detective Brian Mackiewicz, who was accused of padding his timesheet and having an inappropriate relationship with the victim of a domestic-violence incident he investigated.

Sheridan was close with Mackiewicz, Snow found, and Sheridan’s wife stood to make $100,000 in commission from a home sale to one of Mackiewicz’s female friends. Mackiewicz was also Arpaio’s point person in the “Seattle Investigation.”

In sum, Sheridan maintained control of the investigations to ensure “nothing became of them,” Snow said.

Sheriff’s attorneys, ACLU weigh in on the ruling

The Arizona Republic was unable to reach Arpaio’s attorneys for comment Friday, but in a statement they said they have begun reading and analyzing the lengthy document.

“Despite disagreeing with some of the Court’s findings, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office will continue to work with the court appointed Monitor, the ACLU and Plaintiffs to comply with the Court’s Orders, as it has since January 2014,” it said.

Cecillia Wang, a plaintiffs’ attorney with the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, called the ruling “careful” and abundantly supported by evidence and the defendants’ admissions.

“Based on that evidence, it’s a damning finding — that they intentionally and repeatedly flouted the court’s orders,” she said.

Maricopa County Supervisor Steve Gallardo said in a statement the ruling was the “first step in achieving justice for those whose civil rights were intentionally violated by Sheriff Arpaio.”

Gallardo, a longtime Arpaio critic, noted that the taxpayers would be picking up the tab for millions of dollars to ensure the Sheriff’s Office would be in compliance with the court’s orders.

“The irony is, while citizens pay the bill for the sheriff’s violation of the previous court orders, they are the only ones who can remove Arpaio from office and restore professionalism to our law enforcement agency.”

Arpaio is running for his seventh term as Maricopa County sheriff this year.

Next steps: A response to the judge, a hearing

Snow has asked all parties, including the U.S. Department of Justice, to file a response to his rulings by May 27. The Justice Department settled a separate racial-profiling case against Arpaio last year and has since joined this case.

Snow said he will discuss sanctions when the hearings pick back up May 31. Shortly thereafter, he said, he would issue orders on remedies and decide whether to refer the case for criminal contempt.

Snow betrayed little about either upcoming decision in his Friday ruling, although he repeatedly asserted that Arpaio and his aides’ violations were “intentional.”

It’s the key word that could be used to refer the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for criminal contempt charges. Snow also has said his decision will be based on whether he feels civil penalties are adequate.

Civil penalties are largely used to force a defendant’s hand in fixing a problem, while criminal contempt signals punishment. Both can include financial sanctions, but only criminal contempt could lead to jail time.

Snow did signal in his ruling that reforms over the office’s internal investigations are necessary.

And plaintiffs say the parties are already working on a system where victims of the office’s racial profiling could be compensated.

“We are hoping for the court to issue an order that would authorize some type of mechanism whereby victims could come forward and make claims for some type of compensation that stems from the violations of the preliminary injunction,” said Lauren Pedley, a litigation associate for Covington & Burling.

Offshoot of racial-profiling case

The contempt ruling is the latest development in a case that began when Manuel de Jesus Ortega Melendres, a Mexican tourist legally in the United States, was stopped outside a church in Cave Creek where day laborers were known to gather. Melendres, the passenger in a car driven by a white driver, claimed that deputies detained him for nine hours and that the detention was unlawful.

Eventually, the case grew to include complaints from two Hispanic siblings from Chicago who felt they were profiled by sheriff’s deputies, and an assistant to former Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon whose Hispanic husband claims he was detained and cited while white motorists nearby were treated differently.

Snow issued a preliminary injunction in December 2011 that prohibited sheriff’s deputies from engaging in law-enforcement practices that unfairly targeted Latinos, and he followed it up in 2013 with an order that included a court-appointed monitor to oversee reforms in the agency.

The costs associated with the racial-profiling case now exceed $60 million, including at least $8.2 million in tax money tied to the outside attorneys required to represent all the parties in the ongoing legal proceedings.

Obama's Birth Certificate

Isn’t it great how the law changes depending on who the plaintiff is in these cases? When it comes to a liberal globalism, these hack judges bend over backwards to comply with the law. But if it comes to a person who was defending the very sovereignty and security of our nation, they just don’t seem to want to let it go. I wonder how many of the criminals former president Barack Hussein Obama pardoned still have a criminal record?

President Trump Wants To Spread A Message Of Peace While In Davos

THEY WEREN’T EXPECTING HIM TO SAY THAT!

Published

on

President Trump is again on an overseas trip rubbing shoulders with other world leaders and clarifying his vision for America. President Trump ran on a platform of making America great which was a not so veiled slight toward his predecessor. Many conservatives considered the Obama Administration to have pushed America back in the eyes of many nations around the world. His desire to make sure that America lost its appearance of being an overpowering force, left us in somewhat of a compromised position.

The President’s stance on international policy has been simple; put America first, and help out other people second. Since it’s his job to make sure that Americans are looked after, it’s also his job to make sure the rest of the world knows that we won’t be hurting ourselves to bow to international political pressure. The President’s trip to Switzerland has been no exception, and the South China Morning Post reports that the first impression he’s left on the country has been an obvious one:

“Armed with his ‘America First’ philosophy, US President Donald Trump arrived in Switzerland on Thursday to tout his economic agenda and lure foreign investment at a global summit that stresses free trade and international cooperation.

‘We’re very happy to be here,’ Trump said as he arrived at the World Economic Forum. ‘The United States is doing very well, and will continue to do well and this will be a very exciting two days.’

He said he was bringing a message of ‘peace and prosperity’ to the gathering of world leaders, business executives and celebrities.

Asked whether he would be supported at the forum, Trump said: ‘I already am. You take a look.’

He had apparently not seen reports of the massive banner reading ‘Trump not welcome!’ that had been hung on the side of a mountain by Swiss activist group Campax.

Trump then went into a meeting with UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who is angling for trade deals for her country when Brexit takes place next year. He said that the discussions would lead to a ‘tremendous increase’ in trade with Britain, while May said the two countries were ‘on the same wavelength in every respect’.

While the president is expected to declare that the United States is open for business, the protectionist-leaning president’s attendance at the annual gathering for free-trade-loving political and business elites has raised eyebrows.

His decision to sign new tariffs boosting American manufacturers this week has prompted fresh concerns about his nationalist tendencies.

‘I’m going to Davos right now to get people to invest in the United States,’ Trump said on Wednesday before the overnight flight to Europe.

‘I’m going to say: ‘Come into the United States. You have plenty of money.’ But I don’t think I have to go, because they’re coming, they’re coming at a very fast clip.’

In a tweet sent before departing the White House Trump said, ‘Our economy is now booming and with all I am doing, will only get better … Our country is finally WINNING again!’

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin got to Davos ahead of Trump and insisted Wednesday that the United States supports free trade.

‘’America First’ does mean working with the rest of the world,’ said Mnuchin, who is leading the largest US delegation ever to attend the exclusive gathering.

‘It just means that President Trump is looking out for American workers and American interests, no different than he expects other leaders would look out for their own.’

US Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross argued that new US tariffs on imported solar-energy components and large washing machines are meant to deal with ‘inappropriate behaviour‘ by other countries and are not protectionist. Still, Ross conceded that China could respond by imposing its own tariffs on US products.

As he signed the tariffs, Trump said he was heading to Davos to talk ‘about investing in the United States again.’”

It seems obvious that a president would be looking out for his country and not others while overseas, but in recent years the waters have gotten extremely muddied by the idea that helping the world would help America. Perhaps in some cases that is true, but in the case of America, we tend to be treated like the wealthy uncle who everyone can just ask for things from, and give nothing in return.

Everyone wanted to know what was on the POTUS’s mind when he landed, and here’s what he had to say:

Didn’t get it? Once again for the cheap seats in the back:

If seeing is believing, then you’d better find that the President doesn’t plan to back off of his America first plan. His goal is to make our country better than ever. Whether you agree with him or not, he’s charted a path and is marching forward. We ALL will make America great again.

BREAKING!! Trump Just Received HIGHEST Honor! He Just Beat Out President Ronald Reagan!

HOLY CRAP!! GO TRUMP!!!

Published

on

According to the highly prestigious conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation, President Donald Trump has done a remarkable job during the first year of his presidency. His accomplishments are surprisingly a lot better than the American Conservative icon that was President Ronald Reagan!

The heritage foundation is rightly so calling President Donald Trump the most conservative president they have ever rated. And after the eight disastrous and downright anti-American liberal years of Barack Hussein Obama, this is very positive news for both the fiscal and social future of our nation.

After each liberal Presidential Administration, the Heritage foundation begins developing a list policies that a new Republican administration could adopt if he were to win. In 2016 this list included a variety of initiatives. Some of which included reimposing work requirements for welfare recipients, ending the DACA program which shields young illegal aliens brought here illegally as children, withdrawing from the disastrous and one-sided Paris climate accord, eliminating certain unfair gender identity protections, appointing conservative judges and gutting the heart of Obamacare by removing the individual and employer mandate. President Trump is a master at success according to his first year as President.

In a statement, this week The Heritage foundation confirmed that President Trump has checked off 64 percent of those items which were on the 2016 list. Most of which were enacted either executive order or other means of enforcement. They even went as far as to include President Trump’s budget which was great but never voted on by Congress.

Via The Heritage Foundation:

“Trump Administration Embraces Heritage Foundation Policy Recommendations January 23rd, 2018

One year after taking office, President Donald Trump and his administration have adopted nearly two-thirds of the policy recommendations from The Heritage Foundation’s “Mandate for Leadership.”

The “Mandate for Leadership” series includes five individual publications, totaling approximately 334 unique policy recommendations. Analysis completed by Heritage determined that 64 percent of the policy prescriptions were included in Trump’s budget, implemented through regulatory guidance, or under consideration for action in accordance with The Heritage Foundation’s original proposals.

“President Trump had an extraordinarily successful first year,” says Thomas Binion, director of congressional and executive branch relations at The Heritage Foundation. “He put a conservative on the Supreme Court and he enacted historic pro-growth tax reform. This analysis demonstrates the lesser-known policy success that his administration has been fighting hard to enact.”

Heritage Foundation research analysts began developing the policy recommendations in 2016 during the presidential campaign with the following principles in mind: free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

With approximately 70 former Heritage employees working for the Trump transition team or as part of the administration, the policy recommendations have served as guidelines for reducing the size and scope of the federal government through specific and detailed actions.

The first “Mandate for Leadership” was released in January 1981, containing policy proposals of reform that would make government more efficient and effective. President Ronald Reagan distributed Heritage’s book at his first Cabinet meeting.

“As President Reagan did in the 1980s,” Binion said, “President Trump has embraced the comprehensive recommendations made in the ‘Mandate for Leadership.’ These achievements have led to economic growth, a stronger national defense, and a restoration of the rule of law.”

Over the past several months, Heritage’s executive branch relations staff reviewed the 334 policy recommendations and met with senior administration officials in the several agencies. Heritage analysts briefed administration officials on the recommendations, provided additional insight and information, and advocated for reform.”

By contrast, during Reagan’s first year in office, Reagan can only claim 49 percent of Heritage’s wish list were checked off. This is excellent news and a big slap in the face to the so-called conservative leaders who to this day call themselves #neverTrumpers but who claim to pray at the altar of former President Ronald Reagan. This proves all of them were nothing more than just peons for the establishment and the swamp all along. They never cared about conservatism, all they cared about was keeping the gravy train going and maintaining the status quo alive. Maybe they just went with the flow of things to save their job and didn’t care about politics?

Please share if you are proud to support President Trump.

What will be President Trump’s next most significant accomplishment for the American people? Discuss this with your friends and talk about it in the comment section.

Trump Just Pissed Everyone Off With The AWESOME New Picture That Went Up In White House!!

BOOM!!! THATS AWESOME!!

Published

on

The White House is filled with historical pieces and artifacts that represent our nation’s history, but perhaps none are so controversial as what President Donald Trump just donned the walls of the West Wing with today. Among the painted pieces of notable figures in our nation’s history, is a new framed piece of work that comes with a clear message that cannot be ignored. Now, idiots everywhere are infuriated about what our leader had the guts to put up that we’re pretty sure his supporters are going to love.

The First Family is getting comfortable in their new home, just as the Obamas did in their disrespectful way that nobody seemed to have a problem with. When Trump moved in and began putting his personal touch on the People’s House, all hell broke loose with accusations of tactless taste that his predecessor never got when hosting rappers and their wives. Whether people agree or disagree with what our President just put on the walls, he had the right to celebrate his victory in the way he chose to decorate.

The White House isn’t just a place where the president lives, it’s a monument that represents milestones in leadership throughout our nation’s history. Perhaps not a single leader has been so controversial as our current Commander-in-Chief who overcame all odds to call this place home. Because of that, he has every right to document this incredible feat with a framed piece that shows exactly how that happened.

The media tried to portray that Trump’s opposition, Hillary Clinton, had a huge lead in the presidential race. However, one picture proved that wrong, which has now become the West Wing’s latest and perhaps most extraordinary piece of artwork.

Trump didn’t become president by a mere margin — he won by a landslide of votes where it counted most. The Electoral College is the deciding vote and the now infamous image of which way each area of every state went has become its own modern art on display in the White House, and for good reason.

Trey Yingst was among the first to spot this new display and seemingly without realizing the can of controversy he was opening with this Tweeted picture of it, he simply stated, ” Spotted: a map to be hung somewhere in the West Wing.” The image of the Electoral College Map from the election Trump swept in 2016 accompanied his sentiment and infuriated idiots around the country who couldn’t fathom why Trump would display such a thing.

It’s unknown at what point these Democratic degenerates forgot who they were talking about — thinking that somehow it was out of character for Trump to gloat. When it’s his right to do so by having earned it through honest means and against all odds, he should display that victory since it sends a message about what America is all about. Trump was truthful in his lead and the media was not, however, this is photo proof of that bias and that the American dream can be accomplished despite any adversary against you, and needs to be displayed for that reason..

Perhaps the most humorous part of the outrage over this imagery in the West Wing is that the same people who publicly express how tasteless and gross it is, in their opinion, were in support of a wife using the desk her husband received disgusting sexual favors at during his time in office. I think what it comes down to is that the truth hurts and no matter how much some people in America hate Trump, they can’t deny that he legitimately painted the country red in approval of him.

It’s often said that “a picture says a thousand words” but this one speaks volumes beyond that. Trump beat supposed frontrunner Hillary Clinton by far more than a thousand Electoral College votes. This wasn’t just a victory for him, but for the American people who were heard and deserve to have the piece of our country’s history commemorated on the wall of the White House. Every little girl and boy in America with a dream to make a difference and become president one day can do that, just like Trump did as a non-career politician. That’s significant and part of what makes America great.
