Barack Obama is often presented with the choice of supporting America and Americans or working against America. Well, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out which side Obama will fall on.
Now, the Obama regime is striking out against an American hero.
From USA Today:
The Justice Department has been investigating allegations of civil rights violations and racial profiling involving the Maricapo County Sheriff's Office for more than three years.
The announcement could mark the end to a probe that has served as a backdrop as Arpaio pursued his controversial attempts at immigration enforcement through crime sweeps and worksite raids, the newspaper says.
The sweeps have in the past led to dozens of sheriff's deputies descending on heavily Latino neighborhoods looking for minor infractions as a way to launch into immigration screenings.
The scope of the sweeps has broadened, however, since federal immigration officials in 2009 took away Arpaio's authority to perform street-level enforcement as part of a federal program.
Arpaio and his administrators have consistently denied that his immigration-enforcement measures target Latino residents.
Both of those immigration-enforcement tactics have generated broad public support along with claims of racial profiling, The Republic reports.
The Obama regime is now using this as a pretext to eliminate all federal support and cooperation with the Maricapo County Sheriff’s Office.
The message could not be clearer.
The Obama Regime does not want our immigration laws enforced.
While the Obama regime is dealing with the fall out from the Fast and Furious, instead of cleaning up the Justice Department and working to undo the damage from the gunrunning operation, the Obama regime instead wants to go after an American Sheriff who is doing his duty and enforcing the law.
If Obama is reelected, the border with Mexico will effectively disappear. There will be no immigration enforcement.
Even now, immigration arrests are plummeting.
From the Washington Post:
Arrests of illegal migrants trying to cross the southern U.S. border have plummeted to levels not seen since the early 1970s, according to tallies released by the Department of Homeland Security last week, a historic shift that could reshape the debate over immigration reform.
The Border Patrol apprehended 327,577 illegal crossers along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2011, which ended Sept. 30, numbers not seen since Richard Nixon was president, and a precipitous drop from the peak in 2000, when 1.6 million unauthorized migrants were caught. More than 90 percent of the migrants apprehended on the southwest border are Mexican.
The number of illegal migrants arrested at the border has been dropping over the past few years but appears to be down by more than 25 percent this year.
In 2013, we must have a new President and we will need a new Secretary for Homeland Security.
I think there is a good Sheriff in Arizona who would be an excellent choice.
An update on an American being tried by the Obama regime and the horrible S 1867 Bill:
Bradley Manning on Trial as the Senate Passes a Bill Allowing the Indefinite Detention of US Citizens; Anonymous Takes Action /// Fri Dec 16 2011 19:33
After eighteen long months in torturous, inhumane, degrading, & unconstitutional conditions, Bradley Manning has completed his first day in court earlier today in Fort Mead, Maryland. The preliminary hearings are to determine whether or not Manning's alleged "crimes" are worthy of a full court martial. Manning is charged with "aiding the enemy" by allegedly leaking hundreds of thousands of classified military documents including the now infamous video titled "Collateral Murder" which depicted US troops murdering reporters with thementality of stoned teenagers playing a video game.
Manning has been facing an uphill battle ever since his initial arrest back in May of 2010 as he was serving a tour of duty for the Military Industrial Complex during the US's decade long occupation of Iraq. He has faced some of the worst of what the US military has to offer, as far as prisoner housing goes. After spending months in solidarity confinement, the soldier was forced to strip naked nightly before he was finally transferred to a medium-security facility in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
As Bradley Manning begins his trial on whether or not his actions amount to acts of terror, the Senate has passed the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012, a bill that will allow the federal government to detain American citizens indefinitely with out trial, declares the United States as a battle field and even allows for "enhanced interrogation" techniques (Dick's fancy words for torture) to be used on pretty much anyone they feel might be a "terrorist."
Exactly 220 years to the day after the Bill of Rights was created, the house voted a staggering 86-13 in favor of the bill that will strip away any and all remaining civil liberties Americans have enjoyed for the previous couple centuries, or at least the last 30 or so years.
The Internet collective known as Anonymous quickly stepped up and began a campaign to expose the public servants who voted for this draconian bill.
Thanks Mark. Stay with Bob Russell. I am sending him intel from other Tea and Media sources. United We might Stand. (Ezekiel 17 NKJV.) There is a growing CADRE of Us - fighting back. Some are major leaders...some in the minor leagues - just like baseball. Email me anything relevant like this to post. Many of us subscribe to beforeit'snews and americanthinker - worldnetdaily, patriot update, conservative byte...who are not staying quiet.
I posted my email address before, Bob has it. I am sorry that I loaded his inbox with about 15 emals so far...but they had good links and email contacts of several who STAND like you...of whom I have gotten to know and trust. TEAM dynamics.
@ Brian Keith Prince : Hello Brian. Glad you appreciate this post. The sites you mentioned are great and ones I research daily ... or at least weekly. You may have seen this video on S1867 - HR 1540. I would like to hear from other Tea sources also. Not sure I know Bob Russell.
Rand Paul on S 1867 HR 1540 ( + Judge Napalitano )
He is a member of TPN. Judson let him loose on a blog post the other day. I posted your blog to Tea-Party-Patriots (Jenny Beth Martin/ Mark Mecklin) and also to Tea-Party Express (Amy Kremer) - as well as many individual leaders of smaller regionalized groups and local groups. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org - I tend to CROSS-SHARE...many posts and news. Also I am part of the Hoekstra for Senate Campaign in Michigan. (Anti-NDAA S1867). In my voting district Bill Huizenga (R) also voted AGAINST H.R. 1540. Many in W. Michigan STAND! Amen.
The picture would be a dream come true. Can you imagine that if he only serves 4 years, he will receive a $400,000 pension from the taxpayers he screwed.
Edward...the President's pension is set by law as the rate paid to SES-1 (Senior Executive Service - 1) employees; the grade reserved for cabinet secretaries...at present, that salary is set a $194,700. A former President may receive up to $100K for staff salaries, office equipment and supplies for duties related to his former office - such as continuing programs funded by the Congress...but thast $100K is not automatic, and the equipment & supplies remain property of the US government..
...and, former Presidents pay the top tax rate on the annuity payments above $100K, below that amount they pay the normal scale -- on average 36.4% over $100K and 28% below that.
Jim: I guess the Des Moines Register made a mistake in it' reporting to dfay.
How soon will this be real, I want to wake up and try to think this last 3 years have been a nightmare.
So far this is the best picture that has been taken of him.
I agree. I love Sheriff Arpaio.I wish he was here in South Carolina.
I wish we had someone like him in every state. I detest these cities that claim to be sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. Of course Sanctuary cities in the Old Testament were for criminals to sometime for their lifetime.
Just What are we waiting for .GET RID OF OBAMA,SOROS and all the rest of the socialist ,including the people that voted for him.
To Lazy to research and to dumb to listen .
