Feds Destroying Their Own Case Against Arpaio

Fresh from my recent vacation up north, the best article I came across today is this installment from Byron York which lays bare the political witch hunt against Sheriff Joe Arpaio by Obama's Eric Holder's Justice Department....

"You've heard a lot about the Justice Department's lawsuit to stop the new Arizona immigration law. But that's just one part of the Obama administration's multi-front war on immigration enforcement in Arizona.

In addition to the drive to kill the new law, Attorney General Eric Holder is also suing the Maricopa Community College system in Phoenix, alleging it broke the law by requiring a job seeker to provide a green card before being hired. And on Thursday the Justice Department filed suit against the Maricopa County Sheriff's office, run by the flamboyant Joe Arpaio, as part of an extended investigation into alleged civil rights violations there.

Despite the splash of attention from the newest lawsuit, the Justice Department's investigation of Arpaio could end badly for Holder. When the Department first informed Arpaio that a probe was under way, back in March 2009, it sent a letter saying the investigation would focus on "alleged patterns or practices of discriminatory police practices and unconstitutional searches and seizures." But now we learn that just six months before that, in September 2008, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, known as ICE, did its own investigation of Arpaio's office -- and gave it a clean bill of health. Arpaio's lawyers recently got a copy of the ICE report through the Freedom of Information Act...

ICE investigators also interviewed top federal officials involved in illegal immigrant cases in Arizona. They found an "excellent" working relationship between the sheriff's office and the feds. ICE talked as well to federal prosecutors in Phoenix, who described the cases brought by Maricopa County as "high quality."

In all, it's a quite positive assessment of an operation that just six months later would come under the Justice Department's microscope for alleged civil rights violations. It also lends indirect support to Arpaio's contention that the Justice Department investigation is politically motivated."

That Obama is trying to destroy the sovereignty of the United States is no longer in any serious doubt. The only question left is if it is through design or complete ineptitude. Newt Gingrich and Dinesh D'Souza provides some remarkable insight into conditions as they exist in the US and the motivations of our Kenyan-American president....

"Our President is trapped in his father’s time machine. Incredibly, the U.S. is being ruled according to the dreams of a Luo tribesman of the 1950s. This philandering, inebriated African socialist, who raged against the world for denying him the realization of his anticolonial ambitions, is now setting the nation’s agenda through the reincarnation of his dreams in his son. The son makes it happen, but he candidly admits he is only living out his father’s dream. The invisible father provides the inspiration, and the son dutifully gets the job done. America today is governed by a ghost."

Yeah, from Newt,the right wing's favorite serial adulterer and philanderer who at the same time that he was cheating on wife #2 (the woman he'd cheated with on wife #1) with wife #3, he was traveling around giving speeches about the importance of family values.

And who n January 21, 1997, was reprimanded by the House 395 to 28 for ethics violations dating back to September 1994. The House ordered Gingrich to pay a $300,000 penalty, the first time in the House's 208-year history it had disciplined a Speaker for ethical wrongdoing.

His latest ramblings are the rationalizations of a power hungry, desparate, failed and morally bankrupt egotist.

Check ouT the D'Souza article if you get the chance.

I agree with Gingrich politically. It's a shame though that his private life is such a wreck. I can't see him surviving a primary in his own party, nevermind the general election. It would be as bad as nominating Giuliani.
