Sheriff Joe is at it again! Good News!

SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN ! You may remember Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona , who painted the jail cells pink and made the inmates wear pink prison garb.

Well………SHERIFF JOE IS AT IT AGAIN ! Oh, there’s MUCH more to know about Sheriff Joe ! Maricopa County was spending approximately $18 million dollars a year on stray animals, like cats and dogs. Sheriff Joe offered to take the department over, and the County Supervisors said okay. The animal shelters are now all staffed and operated by prisoners. They feed and care for the strays. Every animal in his care is taken out and walked twice daily. He now has prisoners who are experts in animal nutrition and behavior. They give great classes for anyone who’d like to adopt an animal. He has literally taken stray dogs off the street, given them to the care of prisoners, and had them place in dog shows.

The best part? His budget for the entire department is now under $3 million.  The prisoners get the benefit of about $0.28 an hour for working, but most would work for free, just to be out of their cells for the day. Most of his budget is for utilities, building maintenance, etc. He pays the prisoners out of the fees collected for adopted animals. I have long wondered when the rest of the country would take a look at the way he runs the jail system and copy some of his ideas.

He has a huge farm, donated to the county years ago, where inmates can work, and they grow most of their own fresh vegetables and food, doing all the work and harvesting by hand. He has a pretty good sized hog farm, which provides meat and fertilizer. It fertilizes the Christmas tree nursery, where prisoners work, and you can buy a living Christmas tree for $6 – $8 for the holidays and plant it later.

Yup,he was re-elected last year with 83% of the vote. Now he’s in trouble with the ACLU again. He painted all his buses and vehicles with a mural that has a special hotline phone number painted on it, where you can call and report suspected illegal aliens. Immigration and Customs Enforcement wasn’t doing enough in his eyes, so he had 40 deputies trained specifically for enforcing immigration laws, started up his hotline, and bought 4 new buses just for hauling folks back to the border. He’s kind of a’Git-R-Dun’ kind of Sheriff.

TO THOSE OF YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH JOE ARPAIO.. HE IS THE MARICOPA ARIZONA COUNTY SHERIFF AND HE KEEPS GETTING ELECTED OVER AND OVER. THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS WHY: Sheriff Joe Arpaio (in Arizona ) who created the ‘Tent City Jail’:

** He has jail meals down to 40 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.

** He stopped smoking and porno magazines in the jail.

** Took away their weights.

** Cut off all but ‘G’ movies.

** He started chain gangs so the inmates could do free work on county and city projects.

** Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn’t get sued for discrimination.

** He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails, so he hooked up the cable TV again…..BUT  only let in the Disney channel and the Weather channel.

** When asked why the weather channel, he replied, “So they will know how hot it’s gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.”

** He cut off coffee since it has zero nutritional value.

When the inmates complained, he told them, “This isn’t The Ritz/Carlton…… If you don’t like it, don’t come back.”More On The Arizona Sheriff: With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116 degrees just set a new record), the Associated Press reports: About 2,000 inmates living in a barbed-wire-surrounded tent encampment at the Maricopa County jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts. On Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing boxers were either curled up on their bunk beds or chatted in the tents, which reached 138 degrees inside the week before.

Many were also swathed in wet, pink towels as sweat collected on their chests and dripped down to their PINK SOCKS. “It feels like we are in a furnace,” said James Zanzot, an inmate who has lived in the TENTS for 1 year. “It’s inhumane.” Joe Arpaio, the tough-guy sheriff who created the tent city and long ago started making his prisoners wear pink and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic.

He said Wednesday that he told all of the inmates, “It’s 120 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents too, and they have to wear full battle gear, but they didn’t commit any crimes, so shut your mouths!”

Way to go, Sheriff ! Maybe if all prisons were like this one there would be a lot less crime and/or repeat offenders. Criminals should be punished for their crimes – not live in luxury until it’s time for their parole, only to go out and commit another crime so they can get back into live on taxpayers’ money and enjoy things taxpayers can’t afford to have for themselves. If you agree, pass this on.If not, just delete it……but why would you do that ?

All Evangelicals Must Vote for Trump November 8, 2016. The Consequences of Not Voting For Trump Are Devastating.

SUBJECT: EVANGELICAL MEETING – PLEASE READ EVANGELICAL MEETING – IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN_DEAR FRIENDS, A GREAT READ. PLEASE SOAK IT IN AND FORWARD TO AS MANY AS YOU CAN ON YOUR EMAIL LIST. TRUMP WAS NOT THE FIRST CHOICE FOR MANY — BUT DO YOU REALLY WANT TO HELP ELECT THE ALTERNATIVE? YOU MIGHT ENJOY HEARING FROM SOMEONE WHO WAS “INSIDE THE ROOM”: THIS IS FROM BILL PERKINS OF COMPASS INTERNATIONAL. PLEASE VOTE IN NOVEMBER. NOT VOTING IS A VOTE. TRUMP MEETS WITH EVANGELICAL LEADERS. THIS WAS A FASCINATING DAY IN NEW YORK CITY AS OVER 1000 CHRISTIAN LEADERS FROM ALL OVER THE U.S. GATHERED TO ASK DONALD TRUMP TOUGH SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS POLICYS AND INTENTIONS, SHOULD HE BE ELECTED POTUS. THE EVENT ORGANIZERS ORIGINALLY REQUESTED DALLAS, TEXAS AS A MIDDLE-OF-THE-NATION LOCATION TO HOLD AND GET SOME PRIVATE TIME WITH TRUMP, HOPING TO ATTRACT SOME 200-300 NATIONAL CHRISTIANLEADERS. BUT THE ONLY OPENING ON TRUMP’S SCHEDULE WAS IN NYC FOR 30 MINUTES, 30 DAYS OUT. SO THEY TOOK IT!! A SCREENING COMMITTEE, SCOURING THE INTERNET, SENT OUT INVITATIONS TO ABOUT 1000 CHRISTIAN LEADERS. BECAUSE THE HIGH EXPENSE OF FLYING INTO AND STAYING IN NYC, AND THE DATE LESS THAN 30 DAYS AWAY, THEY RESERVED A ROOM FOR ONLY 100 PEOPLE AT THE MARRIOTT MARQUIS IN TIMESSQUARE. EACH PERSON WHO ACCEPTED THE INVITATION THEN HAD TO BE VETTED, AND ULTIMATELY OK’D BY THE SECRET SERVICE. ONCE CLEARED, YOU WERE NOTIFIED BY PHONE. I GOT TWO SETS OF PHONE QUESTIONS ABOUT MY WORK WITH COMPASS AND WHEN FINALLY APPROVED, HAD 10 DAYS TO MAKE PLANS. (I’M SURE I WAS AT THE END OF THE LIST!!) BUT DESPITE RECEIVING THE LATE NOTICES, THE RESPONSE TO ATTEND WAS OFF THE CHARTS. ALMOST EVERYONE THEY INVITED ACCEPTED THE INVITATION. SOME WHO WERE LEFT OFF THE ORIGINAL LIST APPARENTLY LOBBIED FOR INCLUSION. ULTIMATELY THERE WERE OVER 1000 WHO HASTILY CHANGED THEIR SCHEDULES TO ATTEND. THE SECURITY WAS TIGHT FOR THE 7 AM OPENING FOR REGISTRANTS. I STOOD IN LONG LINES FOR AN HOUR, PASSING THROUGH THREE CHECK POINTS BEFORE FINALLY GETTING THROUGH SECRET SERVICE SECURITY. ONCE I FINALLY GOT TO MY SEAT AT MY TABLE. I WAS ASTONISHED TO BE SITTING NEXT TO A SHARP AS A TACK AUBURN GRAD WHO IS MARRIED TO ANOTHER AUBURN GRAD AND LIVES IN VESTAVIA, ALABAMA WHERE I GREW UP. SHE’S A REGISTERED LOBBYIST WHO WORKED FOR GEORGE BUSH (W) WHEN SHE FIRST GOT OUT OF AUBURN, WAR EAGLE TO THAT ONE! ALSO AT MY TABLE WAS A CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATE FROM NORTH CAROLINA, A CHRISTIAN TV STATION OWNER FROM FLORIDA AND THE CHAIRMAN OF THEBOARD OF THE WASHINGTON TIMES. THERE WERE ABOUT FOUR PAST STEELING CONFERENCE SPEAKERS IN THE ROOM, THAT I NOTICED. PROBABLY MORE I DIDN’T SEE. AFTER OPENING REMARKS BY THE CONFERENCE ORGANIZERS, JERRY FALWELL JR. SPOKE, THEN FRANKLIN GRAHAM. BOTH ATTESTED TO THE AUTHENTICITY OF DONALD TRUMP. GEORGE BARNA, THE POLLING GUY, SPOKE. USING SEVERAL CHARTS HE SHOWED THAT TRUMP HAS A GENUINE PATH TO VICTORY IF CHRISTIANS VOTE. BUT IN THE LAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, SOME 40 MILLION EVANGELICALS STAYED HOME AND THAT WAS LITERALLY THE DIFFERENCE IN THE ELECTION. THEN BEN CARSON SPOKE FOR ABOUT 20 MINUTES. HIS EASY AND SOFT SPOKEN STYLE EASILY WARMED THE CROWD. HE REFERRED TO THE FACT THAT TRUMP HAD A BAD THREE WEEKS, AND CLINTON HAD A GOOD THREE WEEKS AND YET THE RACE IS STILL CLOSE, VIRTUALLY TIED. BUT HIS MAIN POINT WAS THATTRUMP IS A PROVEN LEADER. HE’S CERTAINLY NOT A POLITICIAN WHO’S ALWAYS WORRIED ABOUT OFFENDING SOMEONE. AND THAT’S WHAT WE NEED, ALEADER, NOT A POLITICIAN. NEXT CAME HUCKABEE, WHO MODERATED THE DISCUSSION BETWEEN THE CROWD AND TRUMP. BEFORE INTRODUCING TRUMP, HE MADE THE POINT THAT WE’RE NOT VOTING ON A PASTOR OR A POPE, BUT RATHER A LEADER. A LEADER WHOIS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM THE PAST IN ORDER TO CHANGE THINGS FROM THE STATUS QUO. SO THE DAY WAS SET THAT THIS WAS NOT ABOUT TRUMP’S CHRISTIAN KNOWLEDGE OR VIRTUES, BUT RATHER WHERE TRUMP WANTS TO TAKE THE COUNTRY, AND WHERE WE’RE HEADED IF TRUMP IS NOT ELECTED. THE BIGGEST CONCERN CENTERED AROUND THE SUPREME COURT. THE NEXT PRESIDENT WILL APPOINT ANYWHERE FROM ONE TO FIVE MEMBERS. THE SECOND AMENDMENT, FREEDOM OF RELIGION, PRAYER IN PUBLIC PLACES, ETC., WILL LIKELY BE SETTLED BY THE NEXT PRESIDENT’S APPOINTEES. WHEN DONALD TRUMP WAS INTRODUCED, HE DIDN’T SPEAK FROM THE PODIUM BUT RATHER SAT NEXT TO HUCKABEE ON THE STAGE FIELDING QUESTIONS FROM THE CROWD FOR ABOUT 90 MINUTES. SO MUCH FOR THE 30 MINUTES ORIGINALLY ALLOTTED. THERE WAS NO PRESS ALLOWED INSIDE, SO IT WAS JUST TRUMP AND THE CHRISTIAN LEADERS TALKING BACK AND FORTH. THE REALLY BIG CHRISTIAN LEADER NAMES GOT TO DIRECTLY ASK TRUMP QUESTIONS FROM THE FLOOR— I.E. PEOPLE LIKE JAMES DOBSON, RALPHREED, TONY PERKINS, ETC. MOST FELT RELIGIOUS LIBERTY WAS AT STAKE WITH THIS ELECTION, SAYING THAT IF THE POLICIES OBAMA HAS SET IN PLACE ARE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE, CHRISTIANS WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE NO FREEDOM TO WORSHIP. HARASSMENT OF CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS WOULD CONTINUE. THROUGH IT ALL, TRUMP ANSWERED EACH OF THEIR QUESTIONS WITH SOLID ANSWERS, BOTH ACKNOWLEDGING THE PROBLEM CITED AND HOW HE WOULD TAKECARE OF THE PROBLEM. HE SEEMED TO BE GENUINELY CONCERNED ABOUTCHANGING THE DIRECTION OF THE NATION. HE ADDRESSED MANY SUBJECTS INCLUDING THE SUPREME COURT, NATIONAL DEFENSE, BORDER PROBLEMS, CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION, HIS PRO-LIFE STANCE, ISRAEL, HEALTHCARE, EDUCATION. AND ENERGY. I WOULD SAY THAT MOST OF THOSE WHO ATTENDED WHO WERE NOT SURE IF THEY WOULD VOTE FOR HIM, LEFT CONVINCED OF HOW MUCH IS AT STAKE IN THIS ELECTION, IF TRUMP IS NOT ELECTED. AFTER TRUMP LEFT, TO A STANDING OVATION, MORE QUESTIONS WERE TAKENFROM THE AUDIENCE ADDRESSED TO A PANEL OF CHRISTIAN LEADERS. THINGS LIKE THE WEAKENING OF THE MILITARY, CHRISTIAN BUSINESS RIGHTS, ETC., WERE DISCUSSED AT LENGTH. I HAVE TO SAY, WE PRETTY MUCH ALL CAME AWAY THINKING THAT IF CLINTON, OR ANY DEMOCRAT, IS ELECTED, THE PATH THIS NATION IS CURRENTLY ON WILL CONTINUE AND WILL LEAD TO DISASTER. IF WE DON’T TURN THE SHIP NOW, WE’RE HEADED TO BE LIKE SOCIALIZED EUROPE, RELIGION PUSHED OUT OF EVERYDAY LIFE AND A FINANCIAL DISASTER GETTING WORSE BY THE MONTH. EVEN REACHING PROBLEMS LIKE WHAT’S GOING ON IN ARGENTINA, WHERE THEY ARE CURRENTLY, LITERALLY FIGHTING FOR FOOD, IS NOT OUT OF THE REALM OF POSSIBILITIES. IT’S THAT BAD. DON’T THINK IT CAN’T HAPPEN HERE. AT THE END OF THE DAY WAS PRAYER. WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS, THE ENTIRE ROOM KNELT ON THE FLOOR IN CORPORATE PRAYER FOR OUR NATION. I TOOKTHE OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE A QUICK PICTURE OF THAT SIGHT, SOME 1000 PEOPLE IN THEIR SUNDAY CLOTHES ON THE GROUND PRAYING TOGETHER. WHO KNOWS WHERE THIS WILL LEAD. MAYBE . . . .SO, THE BOTTOM LINE FOR ME IS THAT I LOVE THIS COUNTRY AND OUR CONSTITUTION MORE THAN I DISLIKE TRUMP’S ANTICS AND EGO. HE WILL ATTEMPT TO CHANGE THE DIRECTION THAT GODLESS LIBERALS AND THEIR PROPAGANDA MEDIA HAVE LED THIS NATION. WITH TRUMP WE HAVE A CHANCE. WITH CLINTON WE HAVE NO CHANCE. BE THANKFUL WE STILL HAVE A CHANCE AND VOTE THIS FALL FOR TRUMP. PLEASE PASS THIS ON. THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY IN GENERAL AND OUR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN PARTICULAR DEPEND ON EVERY CHRISTIAN BEING REGISTERED TO VOTE — AND VOTING. ONE FLAG, ONE LANGUAGE, ONE NATION UNDER GOD!

Is The Constitution Broken? Many Leftists and Some Conservatives Want To Change It By Constitutional Convention! We Say No! No!

Is the U.S. Constitution broken?

Are the problems America now faces caused by a bunch of flaws in the original document?

According to a few misguided conservative leaders, the answer is yes.

They claim that virtually all our modern ills can be fixed by changing the Constitution.

Their solution is to gather a bunch of politicians, bureaucrats, lawyers and judges, and turn them loose on the precious document that guarantees our freedoms.

It’s called an Article V Constitutional Convention, and Hillary Clinton and George Soros couldn’t be more excited.

Politicians and judges won’t obey the Constitution, so let’s change it?!?

Most liberty-loving Americans agree that the U.S. Constitution is an amazing document.

Not perfect, but one that has blessed us with over 200 years of unprecedented freedom.

Our nation faces many serious problems today, but flaws in our founding document are not one of them.

No, the root of these problems lies with the politicians and judges who are working to undermine and destroy the Constitution.

Now here’s what blows my mind: Of the handful of conservatives calling for a Constitutional Convention, virtually all of them agree that politicians and judges who refuse to obey the Constitution are the problem. Their solution: change the Constitution!

Not only do they seem willfully oblivious of the danger their Convention poses to the bulwark of our freedoms, but they’re missing the most fundamental and obvious fact. A Constitutional Convention will not solve the problem. Accountability WORKS. Even if a Convention were perfectly safe (something it clearly will never be, as discussed below), all our current problems would continue unchecked.

Anti-freedom politicians and judges will not voluntarily start obeying the Constitution just because it’s been amended. The answer is to force them to obey the rule of law. This is something the National Association for Gun Rights does exceptionally well, thanks to members and supporters like you. There is NO guarantee a Convention can be “limited. ”Article V is the section of the Constitution that allows for a Convention. However it provides virtually no guidelines, nor does it limit the scope. It does not specify who will make critical decisions, or how they will be decided.

On top of that, there is no precedent to use as a guide. Not one single Article V activist, not one single constitutional scholar, has seen this process before. The last and only time was in 1787, when the original Constitutional Convention threw out the Articles of Confederation, an action which far exceeded the authority granted.

The truth is this: There is nothing stopping delegates from throwing out our Constitution to usher in more “time-appropriate” government systems and authority. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Berger agrees. Harvard Law Professor Lawrence Lessig put it this way: The only requirement is that two-thirds of the states apply, and then begins the drama of an unscripted national Convention to debate questions of fundamental law.

It would be a grand circus of democracy at its best. U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger said it even more clearly: I have repeatedly given my opinion that there is no effective way to limit or muzzle the actions of a Constitutional Convention. The Convention could make its own rules and set its own agenda. Congress may try to limit the Convention to one amendment or one issue, but there is no way to assure that the Convention would obey.

After a Convention is convened, it will be too late to stop the Convention if we don’t like its agenda. The meeting in 1787 ignored the limit placed by the Confederation Congress “for the sole and express purpose.” In other words, NOBODY can claim they know how to control a Constitutional Convention.

Activist federal judges would govern the Convention. Because there are no existing rules governing the scope or process of a Convention, all these decisions will likely fall to the federal courts. The Convention supporters who claim they can control the process are snake-oil salesmen. Many of them point to activist judges who are re-writing the Constitution from the bench and claim a Convention is the only remedy. But these very same liberal activist judges would likely decide the outcome of a Convention.

Prominent leftists are loudly supporting a Convention. Even more alarming is the support for an Article V Convention from the radical left, including Code Pink, WOLF-PAC, MoveOn, the Sierra Club, the Move to Amend Coalition, and the Occupy Movement. On top of that, left-wing billionaire George Soros is pouring millions of dollars into the Article V Convention effort. Even Hillary Clinton has come out in favor.

Do we really want to stand side by side with such ENEMIES of liberty? Convention supporters are pushing to REPEAL the Second Amendment. Leftists like Soros and anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg know this is their best chance to rewrite — or even throw out — the Second Amendment. They are drooling all over the opportunity to strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment rights.

In fact, lawmakers in Hawaii have already proposed legislation (HCR 114, Apr. 5th 2012) calling for an Article V Convention for that very reason. This isn’t just the intention of one isolated group. Listen to the radical agenda of Democrat Virginia State Delegate Mark Sickles: “If we have [an Article V Convention], I want to be a delegate… There’s lot of problems with this Constitution. I’ll just get up to this Convention and start whacking away.” Clearly, there are individuals who will be delegates to an Article V Convention who are already out to take our firearms.

The answer: forcing politicians to follow the rule of law! Holding our public servants accountable is the key to restoring our nation! That’s why my staff and I work day in and day out to do just that. And thanks to the 4 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters, we have found solid success when it comes to defending the Second Amendment.

Over the last decade we have not only defeated every major gun control effort, we have also replaced numerous anti-gun politicians who tried to trample our Constitutional rights. And just this year we made historic advances in restoring the Constitution. We introduced Constitutional Carry legislation in nearly two dozen states, seeing it make advances in many. And you and I passed Constitutional Carry in TWO states! In both Kansas and Maine, politicians and bureaucrats alike have been FORCED to recognize the Constitutional restraints placed on them.

This is an outstanding win for gun rights, and for the rule of law! Take action now! All these facts are why it is imperative that we stop the Article V Constitutional Convention. The National Association for Gun Rights stands with our Founding Fathers in supporting the Constitution.

P.S. Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg and George Soros are drooling all over the prospect of an Article V Constitutional Convention. Sadly, a few misguided conservative leaders are leading the crusade! They seem willfully oblivious of the danger their Convention poses to the bulwark of our freedoms, INCLUDING the Second Amendment. Consider the warning of U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Warren Burger: Congress may try to limit the Convention to one amendment or one issue, but there is no way to assure that the Convention would obey.

I’ll just get up to this Convention and start whacking away.”That’s why I’m asking for your URGENT help in stopping this misguided push for an Article V Constitutional Convention.

Obama rejects Keystone XL project, citing climate concerns – The Washington Post

A decision on the controversial pipeline.

Once again STUPID-ASS Obama says NO to Keystone. Getting that asshole out of office can’t come soon enough for me. I certainly hope the morons that voted STUPID-ASS Obama into office are happy with their votes. Obama has taken many steps to absolutely ruin this country. Hillary Clinton (2016 No To Hillary) won’t be any better, if not worse, if that’s possible.
