DOJ Breaks Off Negotiations With Defiant Sheriff Joe Arpaio
ABC News ^ | 4/3/12 | Jason Ryan

Posted on 04/03/2012 7:55:46 PM PDT by Nachum

The Justice Department has cut off negotiations with Sheriff Joe Arpaio and officials with the Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff’s Office in its effort to install an independent monitor to rein in the unconstitutional tactics used by officers there. Arpaio, who calls himself “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” defied the Justice Department suggestion that it could sue the county and the sheriff’s office to force the issue. “I am the constitutionally and legitimately elected Sheriff and I absolutely refuse to surrender my responsibility to the federal government,”

I figured they would. Joe really doesn’t give a **** what they have to say. He’s busy being a Sheriff and doesn’t have time for a bunch of chimps from D.C. That’s why Arizonans keep reelecting him.

Yeah. Still here. Still independent. Still monitoring the unconstitutional tactics from the orifices of the DOJ.

“To be brutally clear, the power and backing of the United States Federal Government is being used to silence the press about Barack Obama. Either outright or through coercion, the media is complicit in covering up the crimes of the fraud Barack Obama and his unconstitutional government. These patterns are clear and unmistakable.”

I'm confused first Obambi says appointed officials cant take the unprecedented act of over ruling elected officials mandates, now the appointed DOJ wants to tell a duly elected sheriff that what he is doing is unconstitutional...what is this a major flip flop when it suits their purposes? Now they want to recognize the Constitution when it suits them?

This is an ABCNews-Obama SuperPAC hit piece. Don't tell me that Sheriff Joe is being defiant! It's Obama's DOJ that's being defiant. The headline needs correction.

Defiant DOJ Breaks Off Negotiations With Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Or even better:

Defiant DOJ Breaks Off Negotiations With Resolute Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Obama's SuperPAC ABCNews can go pound sand!

The sheriff’s department is using “unconstitutional tactics”? Really? Is that because they follow the law of the land and are ignoring JNap’s “unlawful presence waivers” for illegals?

Deputize us, Joe. A volunteer posse by the millions. But don't 'blame' us if we 'happen' to round up various federal thugs and bureaucrats in the course of a scheduled sweep for illegals (though similarities may apply). We'll just worry about how to tag 'em and where to release 'em later. But I bet they'd look purdy in those pink diapers you issue. Hee hee hee hee hee..............

If Obozo sends in Federal Marshals, will Sheriff Joe’s men stand and likely die beside him? Would Sheriff Joe surrender to avoid blood shed, but also sacrifice our nation in doing so?

Maricopa County could go down as the first battle ground.

Hopefully, Obama and Holder will back down, but you know they want to punish the Sheriff for exposing all the Obama fraud.

Let me see if I have this straight.

President Obama unleashed an in-your-face intimidating attack on the Supreme Court over his precious ObamaCare the other day.

Now we have the Justice Department trying to embarrass and humiliate the good Arizona sheriff with the same in-your-face intimidating method that President Obama used to attack and embarrass the Supreme Court.

Am I leaving anything out?

You know, if He does not take his stand here, we are all lost! I for one will be willing to stand beside him (could be because I’m older and have less to lose)!

I’d say that if the decent people of his area aren’t willing to stand up for him then we have a much worse problem than we understand. It really may come down to this!

No kidding? They went completely un-branded from the outside view? Don’t they want to advertise who to contact if you have news?

Perhaps they are on a single-channel feed....

Or they see people readying the pitch forks.

The funny is that Obumbo, as pure as the wind driven snow,
with his eligibility beyond any question, has his diaper in a twist over what Sheriff Joe is uncovering.
The Communist media, evading pravda, is all apoplectic over
what the good sheriff is uncovering.

America continues to sink like the Titanic.
