Obama Admin Threatens to Sue AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Ben Johnson, Floyd Reports

The Obama administration has decided to get tough on illegal immigration…enforcement. The Washington Post reports today that Eric Holder is threatening to sue America’s toughest sheriff, Joe Arpaio if the sheriff does not help the administration continue a second frivolous lawsuit against him:

Justice Department officials in Washington have issued a rare threat to sue Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio if he doesn’t cooperate by Tuesday with their investigation into whether he discriminates against Hispanics…a federal grand jury in Phoenix is examining whether Arpaio has used his power to investigate and intimidate political opponents and whether his office misappropriated government funds, sources said.

That sounds serious. It’s not. Apparently “civil rights groups accuse the 78-year-old lawman of racial profiling,” as they do everyone else. (The Department of Homeland Security has estimated that 62 percent of all illegal immigrants are from Mexico, and even more from other Latin American nations. This suggests a potential profile.) In addition, “some Maricopa County officials say Arpaio has launched meritless corruption investigations against officials who have criticized his policies or opposed his requests” — so they’re launching a meritless investigation of Arpaio.

The Attorney General is demanding compliance even as his Justice Dept. is stonewalling an investigation into charges levied by a former employee that the department turns a blind eye to black crimes.

Left-leaning prosecutors do not see any merit in the case against Arpaio. Former Justice Dept. prosecutor Peter Zeidenberg, who helped prosecute Scooter Libby and donated $1,400 to Barack Obama in 2008,  said, “I don’t know what a charge would be…I’m not aware of any federal statute that would fit.”

Even the Post couldn’t help but notice the odd timing: “The standoff comes just weeks after the Justice Department sued Arizona and Gov. Jan Brewer (R) over the state’s new immigration law, heightening tensions over the issue ahead of November’s midterm elections.” This is merely a second front in the administration’s crackdown on its own citizens (on behalf of non-citizens).

Although it is unclear how he could win or hope to keep his case from being laughed out of court, Holder said he expects his case to “produce results.

That phrase reveals everything. The intention is not justice but harassment. This threatened lawsuit is simply the latest bout of federal thuggery, extortion, and intimidation against the Obama administration’s critics.

This prosecution of those who uphold the law on behalf of those who transgress the law represents Barack Obama and the Washington Democrat”s modus operandi: every decision they make is 180-degrees from reality.

Obama will not enforce federal immigration law but is suing a state that offered to help Washington pick up the slack.

Although Obama does not want to investigate the funding of the Ground Zero mosque, Nancy Pelosi said yesterday she will “join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded.”

The president would not comment on the “wisdom” of putting a mosque on the site of the worst act of Muslim terrorism on U.S. soil (so far), but he has called police officers stupid for arresting a hostile suspect and auto officials avaricious for refusing a hostile union takeover.

He refuses to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party (who voted for Obama) for threatening to beat white voters (who have voted against him), but instructed his Dept. of Homeland Security to spy on housewives and veterans who oppose abortion or gay marriage (or, yes, illegal immigration).

Michael Reagan points out in his column today that Obama has no time for Boy Scouts or the National Prayer Breakfast but he has hosted an Iftar dinner surrounded by Muslims. (He also held a Seder that reportedly commemorated the struggle for socialized medicine.)

This is the logical outcome of an administration that believes we must tax our way into prosperity, “spend money to keep from going bankrupt,” cower our way into respect, expand health care by reducing the number of doctors, bow our way into dominance, and balkanize our way to unity.

    LEAVE THE SHERIFF ALONE, DAMMIT!!

  2. Too bad Obummer is to IGNORANT to know about the book, "County Sheriff, America's Last Hope" where it tells how the Supreme Court confirmed that the local sheriff OVERRULES the feds locally. I hope Sheriff Joe knows that, too.

      IF HARRY REID AND NANCY PELOSI HAD THE BALLS— BETWEEN THE TWO,COULD PUT A STOP TO THIS BY INTRODUCING IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS. WHEN THEY WERE SWORN IN THEY PROMISED TO UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION.

    The Obama administration has decided to get tough on illegal immigration…enforcement. That's a real JOKE. Eric Holder is threatening to sue America’s toughest sheriff, Joe Arpaio if the sheriff does not help the administration continue a second frivolous lawsuit against him:

    62 percent of all illegal immigrants are from Mexico, and even more from other Latin American nations. This suggests only one thing, THEY ARE ILLEGAL Barack Hussain Obama and his criminals in his administration should be the ones that are tried for (CRIMES AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE). Or maybe just the trial part.

  4. Elizabeth Rogers says:

    God bless Sheriff Joe Arpaio. He is a true hero. Obama has ignored our Constirution ever since he took over as our first president who is not a natural born citizen. Please, vote in November to stop him from destroying our nation.

    • If they proceed with the lawsuit, the American PEOPLE need to back Sheriff Joe!!!! WE can help him by sending what we can to provide for HIM like he has been providing JUSTICE for US!!!!!! If we even sent just a dollar each, I am sure MILLIONS could be raised for his defense fund!!!!!

  5. Why is there no real branch of the FBI to prosecute traitors at the Federal level? This smacks of racial profiling by the Justice Department where anyone who tries to defend their borders will be attacked by Federal money. This also smacks of some wonderful reasoning by thinking Americans to revisit the American Civil War. Someone should revisit the definition of what Federal dollars are supposed to do while protecting Americans. This same ugly regime run by the Kenyan would probably fund explosives to our enemies against our troops because of some weird definition of profiling enemies as those who shoot at Americans. Remove the usurper and his crony henchman including that illegal Supreme Court appointment who knew of and actively supported him in his illegal and unconstitution behaviors that were willfully instigated by Pelosi. This is the very definition of a country being overthrown. Impeach and incarcerate them both. To paraphrase Simon and Garfunkle, "Where are you, Mr. Phelps, hell holds a place for these 3, yes you will see….". Impeach them now.

  6. Sheriff Joe for PRESIDENT! ILLEGALS ARE DESTROYING AMERICA LOOK WHAT IT HAS DONE TO OUR WHITEHOUSE!

  7. Glenda Adams says:

    Come on people, we are going to have to do better than this. I have signed petitions more than I can count. That is not going to get the job done. We are going to have to come up with a real plan to get this SOB out of office. Afail proof plan that cannot fail. Does anyone have a good idea on how to find out where the SOB is really from? The government can find dead beat dad’s and tax evaders, how come they can’t find the truth on this issue? Because their afraid to. Can someone come up with a plan?

  8. Don't mess with Joe , he might be the only one to require nobummer to produce a real birth certificate
    eric. holder defended muslims against The USA.
    2 bums no good agenda, messing with a GOOD MAN UPHOLDING THE LAW

  9. Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. Â It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

  10. Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression? Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

    • Puerto Ricans already receive all those benefits and they already have the right to vote. What we need to do is just cut them loose and stop paying out all of those benefits. They have voted several times on becoming a state and voted it down.

      • They have absolutely no reason to become a state! Much like BOs aunt, they receive benefits, without paying into the system.

  11. Instead of playing cops and robbers, we should play cops and illegal immigrants.
    They are costing our government billions and they don't pay a cent to all the freebies
    they get. This damn administration doesn't care a damn bit. I'm so disgusted with
    obama the way he is ruining this country.
    Take our country back come election time and vote all the liberals out!!

  12. I support Sheriff Joe and the actions that he has taken to uphold the law (both State and Fed.).

    Something that Sheriff Joe should be looking into is a counter lawsuit against the DOJ, Eric Holder and BO. Since it is noted that this lawsuit looks to be nothing but a BS lawsuit for harassment it seams like Joe should be able to file a counter suit against Eric Holder and BO on the personal side for legal fees, mental anguish and deformation of character ($200 million to the DOJ, $100 million each to Holder and BO). By naming Holder and BO directly I would hope that they have to pay out of their own pocket and would not be able to just laugh it off and say “I don’t care it’s the TAX payers money anyway”. When they loose in court and do not pay all of their assets should be taken.

  13. Stephen Klug says:

    Obama has taken the Oath of Office. He has sworn to uphold the "laws of the United States" He has taken steps to do just the opposite with Immigration law. he should be impeached on these grounds at the least.

  14. This piece of trash, who is a so called president, has shown the country what he is truly about; the destruction of the AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE! He is a puppet installed by the likes of SOROS and his ilk and the deadbeats, human debrie, and also the voter fraud (ACORN)!!! Joe ARPAIO is the George Washington of are TIME!! These vermen in the government are the THUG DICTATORS aka; Kings of England that we fought to gain our indepedence!! It seems the only thing that will wake up the people is to force them into poverty!! Well the camal jockey and his willing thugs are getting the job done!

  15. SHERIFF JOE ARPAIO FOR PRESIDENT !!!

BUT I REFUSE TO HONOR THEM AS THE PERSON IN CHARGE..THEY ALL SCUM IN MY BOOK THEY ARE EVIL DESTROYERS OF MANKIND

  23. I know this might be wrong, but what he needs to do is arrest someone who is 100% white (maybe has black hair- for effect) Let em out in a couple hours, when it is determined that they are not an illegal alien. Gets the law off your back, and proves you are not racially profiling. We are pulling for you Sheriff and when correct history books are made your name will be in them as a hero.

Dancing in the Streets for all America! What a Wonderful Day that would be!

    Hell, I'm allowed to dream aren't I, or is Obambi trying to take those away from us also?

    I do not need to read this article.

    I only need to express my feelings that this federal administration is criminal and needs to be dealt with in the same manner as the good Sheriff is prosecuting his sworn duty as an officer of the peace.

    I call upon all of you to find a way to get in touch with your pentagon officials and ask them to do their duty to uphold the constitution and arrest the man who is acting as dictator. They also have a sworn duty. And IF this man cannot prove he is an american citizen, he needs to be dealt with.

    this man Obama is an enemy of the state and has publicly given aid and comfort to the enemy as he sworn to do under the law he adheres to…..sharia.

    “I have no regrets” were his exact words. he is not so much the president if at all, as he IS an enemy of the state.

    one more thing. find the ACLU if we can find them, name them, label them, and point them out among us, I believe they will go away.

  30. If anybody has misappropriated funds its the u s government, go sheriff joe. Eric holder and president Obama are despicable.

  31. William L. Sasman says:

    If he was running guns over the border I guess they would give him a metal. Doing his job they want to sue him. Some obama and holder crap. This is the change and its going to get worse. Nov. can make a big help to our country if all get right.

  32. Would be an HONOR to serve as a deputy under this man. Majority of the ‘High Sheriff’s in NC would not make a pimple on the ass of this man!

  33. kkstargazer1 says:

    Everyone needs to read the book by Sheriff Richard Mack, "The County Sheriff, America's Last Hope". It is succinct, to the point, and excellent. Former Sheriff Richard Mack took the Clinton Administration all the way to the Supreme Court in 1994 because of the Brady Bill on grounds that it violated the 10th Amendment Right of State Sovereignty, and WON. Most of you have probably already read it and know about it, but, just in case you haven't, I highly recommend it. The Supreme Court has ALREADY decided that State's do NOT HAVE TO follow any directive put forth by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, ANY BRANCH of the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, that is over-stepping its sphere of authority and goes against the CONSTITUTION. The Federal Government cannot force STATE GOVERNMENTS to carry out FEDERAL PROGRAMS or DIRECTIVES on its behalf. The Local County Sheriff, as the highest law enforcement officer in each county, has a sworn duty to uphold the CONSTITUTION and defend it from all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC (read Obama and his Thugs).

  34. Of course, what a fantastic website and instructive posts, I will bookmark your site.Have an awsome day!

  35. FalconP says:

    We know who to stand with, that being oath abiding Sheriffs who are not under federal authority. Those that are "willing and able" are to make themselves available to the sheriff armed if needed to repel tyrannical actions by the federal government. That's the law. And you know I feel just terrible for them because it, "may not be infringed". And by the way, any declaration of martial law is to be considered a "call to arms" by law abiding citizens of each state. These people are not to be trusted.
