    The good Sheriff followed God’s word in Romans 13:3-4 where it is written: For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
    The only problem is that Obama and his lackeys had it backward. He was wrongly convicted by the evil henchmen of the Obama admin. Thank God for President Trump.

      The difference between Trump and McConnell is that Trump keeps his promises. MCConnell would have decided that he had to think about it until Arpaio’s sentence was completed.

        No surprise, Flailing Flake is criticizing the pardon. He says he’d preferred to let the judicial process run its course. You mean the same process where Sheriff Joe requested a jury trial and was denied even though he was within his Constitutional right to have that jury trial?

        The pardon is a bad blow to the Pro-Amnesty/Chamber of Commerce crowd, from which many of Flake’s blessings flow. Good news for MAGA, though, Dr. Kelli Ward is way ahead of Flake in latest primary calculations.

        Congratulations to Sheriff Joe who can relax and find peace as he continues to care for his wife who is suffering from cancer. Thank you, President Trump, for doing the right thing.

          WHAT!?!

          How the heck did that happen?

          Jury trials are the most fundamental constitutional right.

          Denial of a jury trial by a trail judge is an automatic grounds for appeal and overturning of a conviction..

          Joe Arpaio is one of those old fashioned honest people who does the job he was hired to do even when policy changes try to force him not to. He has a great friend in Donald J. Trump as we all do. The Donald Trump I have known of for most of my life is a kind man who is very generous. Sheriff Arpaio is lucky to have known this good man who never lets anyone down.

    Dean Heller just vomited his dinner at the McConnell fundraiser especially after saying what he said about Sheriff Joe in the article below!

    Fellow Treeper and one time Governor of Alaska has endorsed Danny Tarkanian in NV! Plus Mitch the Bitch is going all in on Heller! I thank God for that because Mitch’s endorsement is the kiss 😘 of DEATH 💀!

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/08/24/exclusive-sarah-palin-endorses-danny-tarkanian-against-dean-heller-in-nevada-senate-race/

    From the article linked above:

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Danny Tarkanian for the U.S. Senate in Nevada, an endorsement Palin and Tarkanian provided to Breitbart News exclusively ahead of its public release.

    Tarkanian’s race against Heller comes as Heller, a far-outside-the-mainstream establishment Republican, has not stood with President Trump on most issues. For instance, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Heller “bragged about his dissent against the Republican-backed health reform bills” and he “stated he would continue to uphold” support for former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive amnesty for illegal alien youths.

    In addition, Heller announced his opposition to the idea that President Trump would pardon Arizona’s former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    “I’m not from Arizona, I see this from a distance and I read it, so on, so forth,” Heller said of Trump’s position on Arpaio, per the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “But I just want to make the point that the president was going to come to Phoenix yesterday and pardon him, and chose not to do so. And I certainly hope that’s the position that he has in the future.”

    So. Much. Awesome.
    We met Sheriff Joe on our flight to the Inauguration.
    https://moderateinthemiddle.wordpress.com/2017/01/19/presidential-inauguration-sheriff-joe-😆/

    I first met Sheriff Joe 20+ years ago when we moved to AZ.
    He held a Junior Posse photo and fingerprinting event with Polly Klaas’ dad (God Bless Polly and her family).

    I never forgot how concerned Sheriff Joe was for our kids.
    He protected us and fought for us and this was a political prosecution (persecution).

    THANK YOU MISTER PRESIDENT!!!!!

    Thank you President for being a compassionate man and pardoning this man so that he can breath free and take care of his wife who needs him most now.

      Take for example the CNN crew who bemoaned the fact President Trump has signed a Presidential Pardon during his first year in office. They went on to list other presidents who waited at least until their second year in office to sign pardons.
      What they are wanting us to forget is if Sheriff Joe had been sentenced in October, he likely would have received the maximum six months jail sentence from the Obama appointed judge. And he would have been handcuffed and sent to jail right from the courtroom. Waiting until next year wasn’t an option.

        That’s got to be one of the most stupid things I’ve heard them bring up yet. How in the hell these morons grew to be full sized adult humans without stepping in front of a truck at some point in their life is beyond me.

    On the Aug 25 Presidential thread there was what I consider a very important aspect of this pardon that I don’t see replicated in this thread, so I’ll point to discussion starting at the post below by Psadie.

    The discussion says that there was treachery afoot to derail Arpaio’s pardon, and had the sentencing hearing Friday proceeded, Arpaio would have to wait 5 years for a pardon.

    So there was a good chance he’d suffer the indignity of a forced perp walk and possibly also a jail sentence.

    Have a look, it sounded important to me, and I wouldn’t doubt that level of treachery for a New York second.

    The sheriff worked under the federal Immigration and Nationality Act Section 287(g). Section 287(g) of the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act authorizes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to deputize selected state and local law enforcement officers to enforce federal immigration law. The progressives hated this program. But when it leaked out last year that in TX from October 2008 to April 2014 2993 people were killed by illegals that should tell everyone that we need more not less immigration enforcement.. It is not known to Americans what the kill number for illegals is for our entire country. The TX number is 3 less than the number killed on 9/11.

    Here is some additional information about the Obama corruption with regard to Sheriff Joe Arpaio:

    Zullo: “They Used the Wrong Statute” to Charge Arpaio

    Zullo explained that a new attorney for Arpaio, Mark Goldman, found that Arpaio was charged “under an erroneous statute,” U.S. Title 18, 401, which is federal criminal code.

    The statute reads:

    “A court of the United States shall have power to punish by fine or imprisonment, or both, at its discretion, such contempt of its authority, and none other, as—

    (1) Misbehavior of any person in its presence or so near thereto as to obstruct the administration of justice;
    (2) Misbehavior of any of its officers in their official transactions;
    (3) Disobedience or resistance to its lawful writ, process, order, rule, decree, or command.”

    “That carries a statute of limitations of up to five years,” Zullo said. A similar statute, 402, carries a one-year statute of limitations and consequently “relieved” Arpaio’s three co-defendants of charges. Zullo said that the DOJ was “well aware” that Arpaio could not be charged under 402 and therefore invoked 18 USC 401. “Under 401, this could only be utilized if it was the United States or the government bringing the initial prosecution or action that resulted in that criminal contempt. It can’t be utilized. The fact of the matter is that Arpaio was originally embattled over – in the original civil proceeding — was never being brought by the government. It was being brought by private parties, the ACLU and private law firms, not the federal government. So the problems for the then-administration was if they wanted to get Arpaio blown out of his seat as sheriff, they were going to charge him — which is something they never do before an election period — they needed a statute to charge him and they could not use the correct statute. They ginned this up and used the wrong statute.”

    On April 10, the Associated Press reported that a father-and-son legal team working with Goldman filed a motion stating that “the case should be dismissed because the government did not bring a criminal charge until October 25, 2016 — a mere two weeks before the election — even though the judge had indicated that criminal charges were ‘at issue’ as early as December 2014…The charge is therefore barred by the one-year statute of limitations.”

    Just over a month ago, Zullo and Infowars journalist Jerome Corsi said on the Alex Jones Show that data Montgomery gleaned from his time at the intelligence agencies showed that the Obama DOJ, Federal Judge Snow and other parties exchanged a number of telephone calls during the trial and that Arpaio’s office, cellular, and home telephones were under government surveillance.

    Arpaio has also appealed the outcome of the civil contempt finding to the Ninth Circuit, claiming misconduct on Snow’s part.

    “This was just political retribution and politicizing the DOJ to do it,” Zullo replied.
