How crazy is it to keep telling people the economy is recovering when everyone knows the “stimulus” was a complete flop and unemployment is up?
How crazy is it to keep wanting to spend more billions on “stimulus”?
How crazy is it to let the Bush tax cuts expire when every economist in America is telling you to extend or make them permanent?
How crazy is it for the federal government to sue Arizona for passing a law that directly mirrors a federal one intended to enforce the prohibition against illegal aliens?
On the heels of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents’ 258-0 “vote of no confidence” against their superiors, U.S. Border Patrol agents are slamming President Barack Obama’s administration especially Attorney General Eric Holder.
“We are receiving reports… that Eric Holder and DOJ have signaled that they [will continue to] challenge SB1070. If this development wasn’t so sad, it would be funny,” according to the membership of the National Border Patrol Council Local 2544, which represents U.S. Border Patrol agents in Tucson, Arizona.
While lamenting the disinterest in the Obama Administration for border security and immigration enforcement, Local 2544 officials said in a statement,“Now, [Attorney General Eric] Holder and DOJ [Department of Justice] apparently have found resources to challenge SB1070. This is an obvious political ploy, and Americans should be outraged [that] they actually go after a state for trying to do something about the out-of-control illegal immigration mess.”

Nullification – it’s all the rage these days – and a big part of that effort is educating Sheriffs across the country about their constitutional duties as the ultimate law enforcement power broker in their county. Thanks to retired Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack and his strategy of No Sheriff Left Behind, a number of Sheriffs are beginning to stand up to federal tyranny as they exercise their authority as a county’s top cop. Finally, the false meme of federal supremacy over the states is beginning to crumble.
Some Sheriffs were already out of the gate. Joe Arpaio is charging full speed ahead with arresting and rounding up illegal immigrants, regardless of federal Judge Susan Bolton’s opinion. The federal judge recently blocked most of the tougher provisions in Arizona’s SB1070 law, but that has not stopped the Arizona Sheriff from continuing to do his job.
Another Arizona top cop, Sheriff Paul Babeu, recently stated the federal government has become the enemy of the people. Both Arpaio and Babeu are now targets for assassination by Mexican drug cartels with the addition of a $1 million dollar contract placed on Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s life. Recently, The Police Chief of Rocky Point, AZ, Chief Erick Landagaray Macias, was seriously wounded during an assassination attempt. By tying Arizona’s hands and sending a message to the drug cartels that its business as usual, Judge Susan Bolton just painted a huge target on the backs on may law enforcement officials in Arizona. If the cartels are successful, then blood will stain the hands of Obama, Holden, and Judge Bolton. May it never wash off.
PHOENIX — A federal judge pushed back Thursday against a contention by the Obama Justice Department that a tough new Arizona immigration law set to take effect next week would cause “irreparable harm” and intrude into federal immigration enforcement.
“Why can’t Arizona be as inhospitable as they wish to people who have entered or remained in the United States?” U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton asked in a pointed exchange with Deputy Solicitor General Edwin S. Kneedler. Her comment came during a rare federal court hearing in the Justice Department’s lawsuit against Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer (R).
