The Arpaio Pardon

12h ago

While the left wing snowflakes of the world tell us all oh, how terrible Donald Trump’s pardon of former Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s pardon was, and that he should hang for his contempt of court charges (most of which most of them have been guilty of as well), let’s examine this from what we always do around here…the truth.

You know I’m a big consistency guy. What’s good for one is good for another, regardless, right? So, let’s examine if Trump indeed should be banished to hell forever for this dastardly deed. First of all, it was a very liberal judge that found Apraio in contempt. In most cases, judges of this sort (well, normal, sane minded judges anyway) would have recused themselves from the case. That wasn’t the issue here. In a scene reminiscent of Loretta Lynch meeting Bubba Clinton on an airport tarmac, this judge felt they could actually put personal feelings aside. Now, this is strange, since personal feelings is what rules the snowflake left. Anyway, Arpaio is found guilty of contempt of court (that’s something every TV lawyer has been found guilty of as well!).

Trump pardon’s him, as he is legally able to do. And he is called on the carpet for it by the snowflakes. They feel it was “treasonous”. OK, let’s look at that. Is it treasonous to not charge a member of the armed forces that walked off his post, and joined the enemy…then was swapped out so that not one, but five prisoners from Gitmo who were there because they were the worst of the worst terrorists on the planet? Is that a treasonous act? Is it treasonous to call that member of the armed forces a “hero”, as the Attorney General at the time did? MUCH closer than pardoning someone for contempt of court.

When compared to the 78 documented cases of law breaking and yes, treason that Barack Obama committed during his time in office, you are going to tell me that Donald Trump is treasonous on this occasion? Really? Let’s even go back to Bill Clinton. Was it an offense that you should be screaming about that he pardons his own brother from prior drug convictions?

It’s time the snowflake left wake up and realize a couple of things. First of all, what comes around goes around, and your treatment of Donald Trump will certainly impact the presidency of the next snowflake elected. Do you think you can get away with this type of treatment, and expect us to “come together as a nation” and say “the time of divide is over” because your guy won? No, it is going to be thrust upon you in the same manner in which you’ve thrusted it upon Trump. You’ve been as unfair and unjust to this president as any partisan group has of any president in the history of our country. You have mistreated, maligned, and abused every breath this guy took without once thinking what we’re going to do to your next elected president. And you damn well better not say one bad word about it! We have the video and audio of how you treated this guy. It WILL be paid back in spades!

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

CALL TO ACTION: Public Comments to Save Mexican Gray Wolves


Public comments due August 29, 2017 at 11:59PM EDT. Electronic comments submitted HERE. Please compose your comment somewhere that it can be saved in the event of an issue with the electronic comment page.

WHAT TO SAY:

  • There are fewer than 150 Mexican wolves in the wild and only 250 in captivity.
  • Mexican wolf populations in the United States and Mexico are isolated. The lack of connectivity and the low numbers of each isolated population (which should number at least 200 individuals with a total of 750 wolves) threatens the species with extinction.
  • The proposed plan would turn over management of these rare wolves to state game boards. The last time states were in charge of lobos, the wolf population plummeted due to excessive trapping and shooting of Mexican wolves, authorized by state game boards.
  • State game boards are comprised of political appointees who usually do not have a background in science or conservation. Rather, these appointees usually come from ranching or hunting background.
  • USFWS and not state game boards should be in charge of whether and when to release Mexican wolves from captivity to boost the genetic viability of the population.
  • There should be a plan to discourage conflicts with livestock and lobos and provide education to promote tolerance of the animals within their habitat. To achieve such social tolerance, there needs to be a commitment to funding non-lethal deterrents and work on a holistic plan with local livestock operations to reduce conflict between wolves and livestock and yet maintain a healthy wolf population. Further, lethal control cannot be a solution. If it is, livestock operators will likely never embrace tolerance and use of non-lethal methods.
PETITIONS (Please Sign and Share)
 

If you have not signed the wolf petition, please do so now!


 

 

They are not trophies. They’re family. If bill S.1514 passes, wolves will be shot & trapped for trophy. TAKE ACTION:

KOMMONSENTSJANE – ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY

Reblogged on kommonsentsjane/blogkommonsents.

There is another part of this story called, So the Republican Senate is fed up with our President. The real part of this story is – THE AMERICAN PEOPLE VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP BECAUSE OF THE LACK OF WILL IN THE SENATE AND CONGRESS and the pandering of the two of them with Obama who is trying to make America a communist/muslim nation. The two factions have sat back on their a$$sels for eight years and let Obama use our taxpayer money causes to benefit himself and let our country go to hell in a hand basket and therefore lied to the people.

So the American people are damn fed up with the officials and D.C. Since the Senate and Congress won’t work for the American people – your time is up. We know your pockets have been lined by the likes of Soros and you don’t give a damn about the people or America; but, don’t forget you still have to face your constituents for a job not done. Your promises to the people are “not worth a plug nickel.”

Georgia Resists, a newly formed coalition of civil and human rights groups, Aug. 18 announced a weekend of resistance across Georgia and a major demonstration of unity in response to last weekend’s deadly Unite the Right event in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Aug. 19 at 6 p.m. in Atlanta, organizers of the Georgia Resists Coalition call to community members to gather at Centennial Olympic Park and peacefully march to the Martin Luther King National Historic Site as a show of resistance to hate and white supremacy in Georgia.

“We believe love trumps hate and Saturday’s demonstration will show our solidarity against the neo-Nazis and white nationalists that clashed violently with those standing against racism, leaving courageous American Heather Heyer dead and innocents like Deandre Harris injured, along with more than a dozen others,” Janel Green, a Georgia Alliance for Social Justice leader, said in a news release

Other protests and solidarity marches are planned for Aug. 19 in Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Los Angeles, New York, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Washington.

The Charlottesville rally was held in response to that city’s plan to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. At least 26 cities across the nation have either removed or have plans to remove Confederate memorials. While most of the memorials are clustered in the South, Confederate monuments have been or are planned to be removed in Los Angeles, San Diego and New York. Jim Gray, mayor of Lexington, Kentucky, announced last week two Confederate statues in his city would be taken down and relocated. Activist Takiyah Thompson and three others were arrested for allegedly taking down a Confederate monument in Durham, North Carolina, Aug. 15.

“Charlottesville, like much of America, has grappled with the legacy of white supremacy, the country’s continued decision to honor those who fought to keep black Americans in bondage and the racism and violence we continue to confront on a daily basis even in cities like Atlanta,” said attorney Tiffany Roberts, a Black Lives Matter Atlanta organizer.

After President Donald Trump’s incendiary remarks following the tragedy in Charlottesville, pressure from across the political spectrum to remove hateful symbols including many statutes that glorify the confederacy is mounting. Organizers of the march believe that the removal of these symbols of hatred should inspire communities to confront institutions that continue the legacy of slavery through the systemic oppression of marginalized groups.

“This effort this weekend is to make sure that Gov. Nathan Deal and our representatives in government at the state, county and municipal levels understand that hate has no sanctuary in Georgia,” Francys Johnson, a Statesboro attorney and pastor, said in a news release. “These monuments purposefully celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement and the terror fueled by white supremacy that it actually stood for.”

Organizers including Kenyette Barnes, a registered lobbyist, said this is not just a march.

“We have demands including the adoption of hate crime and comprehensive civil rights legislation; revising the statutory protections for Confederate statutes so they can be move to cemeteries and museums; and more state support for the network of museums that tell the stories of Georgia,” said Barnes.

Millennial activist James Woodall summed up the objective of the March by saying, “This generation is united in both our resistance against white supremacy and racial bigotry and our commitment to fulfill the obligation of citizenship expressed in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution in the building of a more perfect union.”

March organizers have planned for a safe peaceful march to included trained marshals and legal observers to monitor all activity. Our priority is to simultaneously deliver our message while maintaining the safety of all marchers.
