Breaking: Racial Profiling Sheriff Joe Arpaio Endorses ‘Great Patriot’ Donald Trump For President

Arizona Law Enforcement Officer And Devoted Birther Appears On Stage With GOP Frontrunner

Donald Trump is pulling out all the stops. Last week the GOP frontrunner won the endorsement of Sarah Palin and the widow of noted racist John Wayne. Tuesday morning Trump won the endorsement of the son of noted racist and segregationist, televangelist Jerry Falwell. Jerry Falwell, Jr. is president of Liberty University, which his father founded.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Donald Trump appeared on stage to accept the endorsement of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Once known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” the Arizona lawman today is best known as an anti-immigration activist who has been sued by and lost to the federal government over charges of racial profiling and a litany of other misdeeds.

“Arpaio oversaw the worst pattern of racial profiling by a law enforcement agency in U.S. history, a DOJ expert concluded, the Phoenix New Times reported in 2011. “Arpaio and his commanders created a ‘culture’ of abusing the rights of Latinos in the county,” according to assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas Perez.

“Donald Trump is a leader,” Arpaio said in a statement. “He produces results and is ready to get tough in order to protect American jobs and families. I have fought on the front lines to prevent illegal immigration. I know Donald Trump will stand with me and countless Americans to secure our border. I am proud to support him as the best candidate for President of the United States of America.”

On stage about an hour ago ago, Arpaio stood next to Trump and called him a “great patriot.”

An armed man tried to break into an FBI field office in Cincinnati, Ohio Thursday morning, and is still on the loose. Ohio State Highway Patrol troopers are in pursuit, according to the Wilmington News Journal.

“Troopers in Wilmington area in pursuit of man who tried to break into FBI building in Cincinnati,” the Journal adds.

“Unconfirmed reports say his [sic] now firing at police from a corn field,” reports NBC 15 News.

The “police pursuit and ongoing police situation in Clinton County has shut down two highways and prompted an area lockdown. It all started after a potential threat was made at a FBI building in Cincinnati,” WLTW reports. “Officials with the Cincinnati FBI field office confirmed the situation began after a potential threat was made at an FBI building in Cincinnati.”

The Ohio suspect’s motivation is unknown but the news comes just days after the FBI executed a search warrant on the Mar-a-Lago home of Donald Trump, drawing massive right wing outrage including calls for “civil war.”

DOJ Served Trump With Grand Jury Subpoena for Classified Documents Months Before FBI Raid: Report

Published

on

The U.S. Dept. of Justice served Donald Trump with a grand jury subpoena months before the FBI raided the former President’s Mar-a-Lago home Monday, according to a right wing media outlet.

News of the existence of the grand jury subpoena being served on Trump months ago comes from Just the News, a website created by John Solomon. Solomon is a longtime journalist who in 2019 was labeled by The Daily Beast as “the Trumpian right’s favorite ‘investigative reporter,'” and the “Trump-friendly scribe” whose “Biden-Ukraine conspiracies were cited multiple times in the whistleblower memo.”

“Many of his co-workers are ashamed to be associated with him,” The Daily Beast reported, citing “his questionable reporting, which often seems specifically tailored to stoke the flames of right-wing paranoia.”

Solomon on Thursday writes: “Two months before his Florida home was raided by the FBI, former President Donald Trump secretly received a grand jury subpoena for classified documents belonging to the National Archives, and voluntarily cooperated by turning over responsive evidence, surrendering security surveillance footage and allowing federal agents and a senior Justice Department lawyer to tour his private storage locker, according to a half dozen people familiar with the incident.”

If accurate, that’s news.

“Very clearly not the intention of that John Solomon article, but it inadvertently reflects very well upon the Justice Department,” NBC News Justice reporter covering the DOJ, Ryan J. Reilly observes. “A subpoena was issued to the former president of the United States and it held for nearly three months, until Trump’s own team publicly disclosed it!”

National security and civil liberties journalist Marcy Wheeler adds: “Here’s what propagandist John Solomon says FBI had reason to believe Trump didn’t turn over in the original 15 box collection of stolen documents: Correspondence with foreign leaders.”

She points to this section of Solomon’s article:

“The subpoena requested any remaining documents Trump possessed with any classification markings, even if they involved photos of foreign leaders, correspondence or mementos from his presidency.”

According to multiple news outlets, FBI agents carted away an additional 10 to 12 cartons on Monday, in addition to the 15 the National Archives was forced to travel to Mar-a-Lago to retrieve earlier this year.

Even Rupert Murdoch’s Trump-friendly New York Post on Tuesday reported a “showdown over the materials first erupted back in January when the National Archives said it had retrieved 15 boxes of White House records — including classified information — from Mar-a-Lago that Trump should have turned over when he left office. The feds took another 12 boxes of material on Monday.”

Watch: Beto O’Rourke Swears at Heckler for Laughing at Uvalde Deaths: ‘It May Be Funny to You … But It’s Not to Me’

Published

on

Just like his speech in a sweltering Cleburne, Texas gymnasium Wednesday morning, it was also standing room only Wednesday night when Beto O’Rourke, positioned in the center of the room and surrounded by hundreds of people at a town hall in Mineral Wells, Texas, swore at a heckler who laughed when the former U.S. Congressman mentioned the Uvalde, Texas elementary school mass shooting.

“It may be funny to you, motherf—er,” shouted O’Rourke, a former Democratic Party presidential candidate now running to unseat GOP Governor Greg Abbott, “but it’s not funny to me.”

The tall 49-year old father of three shared his profane remarks to massive standing applause, cheers, and the waving of black and white signs that matched the candidate’s black Levi’s and white long sleeve woven shirt.

He didn’t miss a beat.

O’Rourke had passionately reminded the audience that it’s now been “eleven weeks since we lost 19 kids and their two teachers, shot to death with a weapon originally designed for use in combat, legally purchased by an 18 year old who did not try to obtain one when he was 16 or 17, but followed the law that’s on the books ladies and gentlemen, that says that you can buy not one, you could buy two or more if you want to. AR-15s, hundreds of rounds of ammunition and take that weapon that was originally designed for use on the battlefields in Vietnam to penetrate an enemy soldier’s helmet at 500 feet and knock him down dead up against kids at five feet.”

Out of nowhere, a laugh from someone in the audience, apparently near where a few people were holding up signs for Gov. Greg Abbbott.

“It may be funny to you, motherf—er,” the Democratic nominee shot back, “but it’s not funny to me.”

“We’re gonna make sure that our kids who are starting their school year that they don’t have to worry about somebody walking into their school with a weapon like this,” he continued amid the applause and cheers, “that we take common sense steps we find the common ground, Democrats or Republicans gun owners non-gun owners alike.”
