Sheriff Joe Arpaio to lose 287(g) status


You heard it here first...

It appears that Sheriff Joe Arpaio has finally got under the skin of the Obama Administration so badly that they have decided to "make up any reason possible" to take his 287(g) status (his ability to legally detain and perform immigration functions) from him. On Friday, Dept of Homeland Security officials held a meeting with ICE to inform them that it is time to stop the Sheriff. They were told to "make up a reason" to remove his 287(g) status to stop him from his very effective anti-illegal immigration efforts. Since ICE falls under DHS authority they have no choice but to follow through with the orders.

It's a sad day in America when politicians have to stop an honorable and excellent Sheriff like Joe Arpaio. I can tell you that the good people at ICE aren't huge fans of the idea. After all, Sheriff Joe has helped them in ways very few other law enforcement officer in the country have. I hope that the Sheriff can find a way to beat this and regain his IIRAIRA functions.

Agents on horseback arrest 80 near Arizona border


TUCSON, Ariz. - Border Patrol agents in southern Arizona have made their single-largest arrest of the year.

On Friday, agents who were patrolling on horseback east of Douglas saw a large number of footprints and began tracking them.

After following the foot sign for several hours, agents arrested a group of 80 from Mexico outside of a ranch about 30 miles east of Douglas.

At least three agents took the group into custody. All were transported by buses to the Border Patrol station in Douglas.

Fingerprint checks showed 21 men had criminal records, including one convicted of vehicular manslaughter in California.

Only here to work huh? To do the jobs Americans won't? Yeah... that sounds about right.

Twilight star goes above and beyond

I have watched the movie Twilight once, and while I'm not a huge fan I did think that it was an OK film. I also haven't read any of the books that inspired the movie, however I did read something this morning related to the film that I had to share with you guys and it has to do with one of the actors in the film. His name is Peter Facinelli, (side trivia: He is married to Jennie Garth) he played Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the movie. On Sunday, March 22nd, Peter went to Fort Lewis in Washington State to do a Twilight DVD signing for military personnel and family stationed at Fort Lewis and McChord AFB. He was scheduled to start signing autographs at around 9:30 AM and it was supposed to last for only 2 hours. Instead of staying there just those 2 hours and leaving countless fans without an autograph, Peter decided that he was going to stay there until EVERY single person received an autograph. He ended up sitting at the PX (Post Exchange, essentially the military version of a Walmart Supercenter) for almost 17 hours straight, signing items for over 5,000 fans! There was no limit on how many things he would sign or how many pictures he would take with anyone who asked.

It is very rare these days to see a celebrity do something so selfless and so dedicated to their fans, so I wanted to pass this along. He could have easily stopped after a couple hours so he could go catch his flight out of town, instead he canceled his flight and stayed there to keep signing. He definitely deserves recognition for this, and I for one am now a huge fan of his.

The story is shared here, on the Army and Air Force Exchange Service website:, although I doubt you will see the story on many, if any, major news outlets. This guy is truly a class act.

Actor Peter Facinelli, currently featured in the blockbuster movie “Twilight,” was busy boosting the morale of Soldiers and their Families at the Ft. Lewis Post Exchange this weekend. In fact, if Facinelli were employed by the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, he probably would be due some overtime pay as he cheerfully hosted more than 5,000 fans during a marathon autograph session that stretched from Saturday to early Sunday morning.

Transparency huh?

So I know I'm a little late on this one, and I'm not patient enough to add links to the information, but I can still rant about it.

Apparently unlike the other times BHO invites the cameras in to watch him sign some legislation into law and all, he likes to keep the controversial (completely ridiculous) stuff out of view of the public eye.

For example, his recent decision to remove the ability for commercial airline pilots, who go through the required course and training, to carry a firearm with them on the plane. What the hell is he thinking?!?! Has he never heard of hijackers taking over a plane with the smallest weapon possible because no one in the cockpit is armed?? Did he sleep through the events on 9/11?! There are so many examples any one of us could name where the outcome would've/could've been a hell of a lot different had the ppl in the cockpit been armed.

Not every flight is lucky enough to have a federal air marshal on the flight. It would make things a lot more difficult for the ppl trying to take the plane over if they knew there was a pilot or 2 with a couple handguns waiting for them. Unfortunately, Ohblahma decided that we aren't important enough to keep safe anymore. It's no secret how much I disapprove of everything our Comrade in Chief does and is about, but you'd think common sense would apply here. I imagine that he doesn't disapprove of those who have the proper firearms/weapons training to carry them on Air Force One. Perhaps he's the only one who is important enough to protect in that manner. I'd love to hear his explanation on this matter, but the MSM is too in love with him to dare ask questions that would be difficult for him to answer.

Mr. President, be prepared to grovel at the feet of every single family member that suffers from your poor judgement and under-handed move. I pray you come to your senses and reverse this asinine decision. I apologize if this post is scatter-brained, emotions run high and grammar suffers.

My Thoughts on the AIG distraction.

It truly bothers me that both the Democrats and the Republicans can be so obtuse as to think we'll believe their "outrage" over something they themselves created. They already sent billions and billions to AIG and they're pissed over less than a tenth of 1% of the money they handed over.

Meanwhile, while everyone is distracted, the Ohblahma Administration dumps a trillion dollars of our money that we currently don't have into the economy, further de-valuing the already declining dollar.

Back to the AIG nonsense. It's nice to see our govt stand together and vote on something that is utterly unconstitutional. My fear about that is that it will end up being argued by the SCOTUS, wasting more taxpayer's money. AIG will hire lawyers with the bailout money they have (our money), and suing the govt. Otherwise known as a colossal waste of taxpayer's money all around.

In the end, my thoughts are that we should be beyond angry. We should finally do something besides sit and bitch about how our govt doesn't work for we the people anymore. This debacle will take decades to recover from and pay off, and if we don't change what's been going on for far too long, we're telling them it's ok to continue doing this to us. The 2nd American Revolution is coming.

Obama Jokes, Gaffes On 'Tonight Show'

Story from

Obama Also Says Geithner Doing 'Outstanding Job'

President Barack Obama has told Jay Leno he was stunned when he learned of the bonuses that bailed-out insurance giant AIG was paying its employees.
Now this part is very interesting to me... Considering the stimulus package that was "whisked" through Congress and sent to Obama for his signature had specific language allowing bonuses if they were part of a written employment contract "executed on or before February 11, 2009." Now if he (or any member of Congress) would have actually read this "extremely important and crucial" bill that was "necessary to bring our country out of recession," he would have seen this key part of the stimulus package. Heck, if he would have even just followed his campaign promise and given American citizens a 5 (five) day period of review before he signed it, there is a chance it could have been caught. I'm just saying...

Obama told "The Tonight Show" host the payments raise moral end ethical problems -- and the administration's going to do everything it can to get them back.

But Obama added the bigger problem is the culture that allowed traders to claim them. He said that's got to change if the economy is to recover.

Obama also spoke about his embattled Treasury chief, Timothy Geithner, saying he is doing an "outstanding job."

Listing the recession, the banking crisis and the need to coordinate with other countries, Obama acknowledged Geithner's "on the hot seat". But he said too many in Washington are trying to figure out who to blame for things -- when they should be focused on fixing them.

It's interesting to see all of the Democrats scramble to find someone to lay blame to. The nice thing is that since they (the Democrats) hold most of the power in Congress currently, and they are the only ones involved in writing the stimulus package, there is essentially no way to place blame on a Republican. However, I would not be surprised to see them still find a way to try and blame Republicans for the language being placed in the package.

He said that Geithner is a smart guy who's been handed an incredibly full plate. But he's handling it all with grace and good humor.

As far as Obama's sense of humor had him saying something he may regret.

Leno complimented Obama on his 129 point bowling score, but the president quipped, "It was like the Special Olympics or something."

Lets see any Republican (let alone a Republican President) say this very same thing and see how quickly it makes front page news and how many people call for a resignation or public apology.

Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton said the president's offhand remark was not meant to disparage the Special Olympics, only to poke some fun at the commander-in-chief's bowling skills.

"He thinks that the Special Olympics are a wonderful program that gives an opportunity to shine to people with disabilities from around the world," Burton told reporters flying back to Washington with Obama aboard Air Force One.

According to NBC, Obama was the first sitting president ever to appear on "The Tonight Show." He'd already appeared twice as a candidate.

Is this something he is proud of? Is he the President or a celebrity? He doesn't take the office seriously. There is a reason why no other sitting President has been on a late night talk show... There is a reason why Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush required people to wear their jacket with their suit when they entered the Oval Office. There is a reason why a President should ALWAYS be on time. The office of President is a prestigious post. It is a symbol of our citizens and should be treated with a very high level of respect and dignity. Yes, they can be considered trivial things, but if he doesn't take small things serious then who is to say he would take anything else seriously?

What is a key indicator of immaturity and irresponsibility that you pickup on as a parent, employer, member of a group tasked with a mission: some member that is always late. The teenager late for class, the employee late to a job site and the customer calling with "Where is Barack? He is late for work." If I was late to work this often I would be fired. That's a plain fact.
