America´s Whiniest Ex-Sheriff
Announces Senate Run

Reason, by C.J. Ciaramella

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 1/9/2018 2:13:43 PM

A bit more than a year after voters booted him out of office, former Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio has announced he´s running for the U.S. Senate. The 85-year-old Arizonan—an unrepentant birther, nativist, and whiny baby—told the Washington Examiner that he will run on a platform of supporting the agenda of President Donald Trump, who pardoned Arpaio last year after a federal judge held the ex-sheriff in criminal contempt. "I have a lot to offer. I´m a big supporter of President Trump," Arpaio told the paper. "I´m going to have to work hard; you don´t take anything for granted.

Wow. I guess he misses the spotlight. The main effect he´ll have is to take votes away from Ward and hand the race to McSally. Ward needs a big turnout in Maricopa County and that´s Arpaio´s strength. McSally´s congressional district is in Southern Arizona including the Tucson area. She´ll clean up there.

Reason lost its, er, reason during the Obama administration and with so many states legalizing marijuana its pet project of intellectualizing pot smoking was greatly diminished, Sessions´ announcement notwithstanding.

I´m frankly astounded at the stoooopidity over this announcement (a little here, lots elsewhere). People seem to be constantly jumping up and down hollering that we need to get off our butts and get involved in politics. Then when a good man like Arpaio decides to do just that, these same people immediately whine, "Oh, no! He´s going to ruin everything!"

Whatever!

I hope Sheriff Joe doesn´t run, he´s too old and he will take votes away from a more viable conservative candidate, however, a law enforcement official´s job is to protect law abiding citizens from harm, and crime statistics show that as sheriff, Joe Arpaio kept his district more than twice as safe as a neighboring district overseen by a liberal sheriff, even though the areas had almost identical demographics and problems. Sheriff Joe lost his job thanks to being targeted by a lavishly Soros funded campaign. The people of Maricopa County should have known better.

Yay for the optimism it takes to apply for a 6-year job when you´re 85, but this isn´t a gig as Wal-Mart greeter.

Regardless of what a stalwart conservative Sheriff Joe may be - and I like him - he´s too damned old to be a senator. Says me.

Arpaio dodged a bullet with Trump. He should quietly retire now. He´s too old for the job and too much of a loose cannon.

Kind of like Roy Moore. Makes you wonder which GOPer or Dem is advising him.

AZ should be another safe seat. The dems don´t care and they´ll cross the aisle to vote for Arpaio in the primary. Meanwhile, the GOP field will be yuge and split the sane vote. Dems win. Maybe another two seats since McCain will be gone too.

Joe needs to stand down.

Citing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh´s record on privacy issues, Sen. Rand Paul (R–Ky.) said Sunday that he has yet to decide if he´ll vote to confirm the judge. "I´m concerned about Kavanaugh," Paul said on Fox & Friends, alluding to the judge´s views on the Fourth Amendment, which protects American citizens from "unreasonable searches and seizures." Paul explained that since President Donald Trump "did such a great job" with his first Supreme Court pick, Neil Gorsuch, he is keeping an "open mind" regarding Kavanaugh. But the Kentucky Republican is "worried" and "perhaps disappointed" that Kavanaugh may "cancel out Gorsuch´s

"We have to STOP the next Trump nominee!" says a pop-up solicitation on People for the American Way´s website. Before you rush to "donate now," you might want to consider the organization´s assessment of Trump´s last Supreme Court nominee. "Far from being a fair-minded constitutionalist," PFAW says, Neil Gorsuch "has proven to be a narrow-minded elitist who consistently votes in favor of corporations and the powerful." The gap between that description and Gorsuch´s actual performance on the Court speaks volumes about the blind partisanship of Trump critics who care more about scoring political points than defending civil liberties.

Harley-Davidson, the iconic American motorcycle brand, will shift some manufacturing overseas in response to the raising of trade barriers on both sides of the Atlantic. In a filing made Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Wisconsin-based Harley-Davidson disclosed plans to move some of its manufacturing facilities from the Rust Belt to the Old World in the hopes of avoiding higher costs created by new European Union tariffs that target American-made motorcycles, along with other cultural products like whiskey and blue jeans. Those 25 percent tariffs were imposed last week by E.U. officials in response to the Trump administration´s decision

The Republican Party of Texas has officially endorsed decriminalization of marijuana, offering yet more proof of the dizzying speed at which attitudes are changing toward marijuana and marijuana prohibition. At the state´s GOP biennial party convention in San Antonio last week, assembled delegates lent their overwhelming support to adding four cannabis-related planks to the party platform, including the repeal of criminal penalties for marijuana possession, the expansion of the state´s incredibly limited medical marijuana law, a call for the rescheduling of marijuana at the federal level, and the legalization of industrial

A Pennsylvania-based company that claims to be the last American manufacturer of steel beer kegs might be driven out of business by the tariffs that President Donald Trump imposed last week. On Thursday, Trump signed an executive order imposing 25 percent tariffs on steel imported into the United States (plus a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum). The tariff will help steel makers at the expense of steel-consuming businesses like American Keg of Pottstown, Pennsylvania. "Tariffs will inadvertently drive the price of American steel higher," CEO Paul Czachor tells Philly.com´s Sam Wood. "Within a year, we might have to raise our

One of the ironies of trade protectionism is that tariffs and import quotas are what we do to ourselves in times of peace and what foreign nations do to us with blockades to keep imports from entering our country in times of war. Or consider that we impose sanctions on U.S. enemies such as North Korea, Russia, and Iran because we want them to feel the economic pain of being deprived of imports. But now we are imposing sanctions on our own country, putting up tariffs supposedly to make Americans more prosperous. If ever there were a crisis of logic

There may be a path to accomplishing just that—but it´s unlikely that anybody would like the results.

Former CIA Director John Brennan continued Tuesday to criticize President Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit, saying Mr. Trump could have potentially risked intelligence capabilities during his private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and the intel community might begin to withhold intelligence from Mr. Trump. In light of Mr. Trump’s comments about the intelligence community, Mr. Brennan said “there very well might be” a shift in the covert community to “withhold vital intelligence” in order to protect that information. “Dan Coats and Gina Haspel need to be on top of their game now and speak truth to power,” he

Former Gus Hall enthusiast John Brennan, off his meds again, tweeted that the presser was “treasonous.” Professional chatterer Anderson Cooper said it was “perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit.” Every phrase, every gesture of the event will be picked

Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new darling of the Democratic party. In a recent interview, however, the upstart politico running in a hyper-liberal district in New York did not show command of the issues. Ocasio-Cortez was being interviewed by Margaret Hoover on the PBS show ‘Firing Line.’ Hoover asked very basic, softball questions of the young congressional candidate. In explaining her positions on the economy, Hoover asked Ocasio-Cortez “Do you think that capitalism has failed to deliver for working class Americans?” Hoover cited a currently booming US economy and low unemployment.

Obama’s speech to a cheering crowd of thousands in South Africa countered many of Trump’s policies, rallying people around the world to keep alive the ideas that Mandela worked for including democracy, diversity and tolerance.
