Figures. Sheriff Dipstick’s Department Had Contact With Loughner Prior To Shooting

Lefty media darling Sheriff Dupnik has some ‘splainin to do.  

TUCSON — The police were sent to the home where Jared L. Loughner lived with his family on more than one occasion before the attack here on Saturday that left a congresswoman fighting for her life and six others dead, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said on Tuesday.

A spokesman, Jason Ogan, said the details of the calls were being reviewed by legal counsel and would be released as soon as the review was complete. He said he did not know what the calls were about — they could possibly have been minor, even trivial matters — or whether they involved Jared Loughner or another member of the household.

It’s time for the official lawman of MSNBC to to STFU, stop blaming Rush Limbaugh and start explaining to the victims’ families why his department dropped the ball and allowed this psycho killer to roam the streets of Tuscon unchecked.

Et tu, Barry?

As the left shrieks and tries to lay the blame for the Arizona shootings on Sarah Palin and the Tea Party, let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit the following statements made by the Hope and Change president who was going to heal our country:

“I think it’s tempting not to negotiate with hostage takers, unless the hostage gets harmed. In this case the hostage is the American people and I was not willing to see them get harmed,” Obama on keeping taxes from increasing, December 6, 2010

“A Republican majority in Congress would mean “hand-to-hand combat” on Capitol Hill for the next two years, threatening policies Democrats have enacted to stabilize the economy,” Obama, October 6, 2010

“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama in July 2008

“Here’s the problem: It’s almost like they’ve got — they’ve got a bomb strapped to them and they’ve got their hand on the trigger. You don’t want them to blow up. But you’ve got to kind of talk them, ease that finger off the trigger.”  Obama on banks, March 2009

“I want you to argue with them and get in their face!” Barack Obama, September 2008

“We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.” Obama to Latinos, October 2010

“I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!” Obama on ACORN Mobs, March 2010

“We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“ Obama on the private sector, June 2010

Now do I think Obama is to blame for what happened in Arizona?  Not even for a second.  BUT, if we are to follow the lead of the shriekers on the left and apply their standard in assigning blame for the acts of a deranged madman, we must look at all rhetoric equally. 

Or people could stop using the unspeakable horror to gain political points and say a prayer for the victims instead.

Raaacist Boston PD Participating In ICE Program Aimed At Deporting Illegals

Well, now, what do we have here?  While the Boston City Council was busy passing a resolution to boycott Arizona for its raaaacist immigration law, Boston’s finest were working with ICE to rid the Commonwealth of illegals.

San Francisco, Chicago and Washington, D.C. have fought to block this program. A Boston police spokesperson wouldn’t confirm whether the department is participating.

But according to federal documents and ICE, the Boston Police Department is participating. These officials say Boston is one of the cities where the program started.

“Boston was actually part of a pilot back in 2006 that first tested interoperability,” Martin says.

According to Martin, Boston shares the fingerprints of everyone it arrests with immigration officials. He says it’s all part of a plan to work more “efficiently.”

Here’s how it works:

When Boston police officers arrest someone, they enter their fingerprints into a database of FBI, Homeland Security and immigration information. If the person has had any interaction with immigration officials — if they overstayed a visa, if they applied for asylum, if they have a green card — it will ping officials. If ICE wants that person, they’ll call Boston police to put a hold on them.

ICE categorizes these immigrants — some of whom are here legally — by the severity of the charges against them. The program is supposed to target the worst offenders — “Level 1s” — people charged with murder, kidnapping, national security crimes. But Martin says ICE officials also deport people accused of lesser crimes that are picked up by Boston police officers.

“It’s based on what our resources allow,” he says. “Certainly somebody that is arrested for a Level 2 offense that also has those charges which make them removable, if we have the resources to devote to that, then we certainly will do that and enforce the immigration laws.”

Guess who was governor in 2006?  Not Deval.  Guess who was president?  Not Barry.

I wonder if some disgruntled illegal will storm the field at Fenway waving a Brazilian flag in response to this raaacist, xenophobic policy?

Support For Arizona Law Hits 75%

As Obama’s support circles the drain, the Arizona immigration law’s skyrockets.

Public support for Arizona’s controversial new immigration law has increased slightly, a new CBS News poll shows, with 57 percent of Americans characterizing the law as “about right” in the way it addresses the issue of illegal immigration.

Support for the measure increased five points since May. Since then, the Justice Department has filed suit against the law, claiming that it usurps federal authority to enforce immigration laws.

Epic fail.

Not The Protest The Moonbats Had Hoped For

The National Governor’s Association is in town and, as expected, there was a protest outside of the kickoff event at Fenway Park last night.  But it wasn’t the protest the moonbats had hoped for.  Instead of a sea of  Mexican flag-waving crazies protesting the Arizona immigration law and Jan Brewer’s presence, at least two thousand Massachusetts police officers were outside to protest their governor and host of the conference, Deval Patrick.

As many as 2,000 cops from across the state picketed the first night of the National Governors Association meeting in Boston, shouting “Dump Deval!” as busloads of VIPs arrived for a dinner at Fenway Park [map] hosted by Gov. Deval Patrick.

It was the first of two major protests police unions have planned for Patrick as he hosts the nation’s governors this weekend. Officers are angry over layoffs, cuts to the Quinn Bill educational stipend, the use of flagmen at road construction sites and what they see as a broken campaign promise to put 1,000 more cops on the streets.

“When he was running against (former Attorney General) Tom Reilly he needed us, so he tried to appease us,” said Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association president Thomas Nee. “Things are not getting better out there, they’re getting worse. We’re starting to see it every weekend.”

Video here.

One of Deval Patrick’s many broken campaign promises was to put 1000 more cops on the streets.  It’s been almost four years and instead of new cops heading to the police academy, veterans are getting pink slips. 

Together we can.

Rasmussen: 56% Oppose United States v. Arizona, 61% Are Down With a Similar Law In Their State

Raaaacists!

Voters by a two-to-one margin oppose the U.S. Justice Department’s decision to challenge the legality of Arizona’s new immigration law in federal court. Sixty-one percent (61%), in fact, favor passage of a law like Arizona’s in their own state, up six points from two months ago.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 28% of voters agree that the Justice Department should challenge the state law. Fifty-six percent (56%) disagree and another 16% are not sure.

These findings are unchanged from late May when the possibility of such a challenge first surfaced in news reports.

Eighty-six percent (86%) of all Likely Voters say the immigration issue is at least somewhat important to how they will vote for Congress this November, with 55% who say it is Very Important.

This is going to be a killer for many Democrats in November, but Barry & Co. couldn’t care less.  They have their eye on 2012 and must pander to the La Raza crowd for turnout and cash.

Racist FBI & ICE Agents Arrest Illegal Immigrants In Connection With Times Square Bomb Plot

Deval Patrick looks like a bigger dunce than usual today.  It was just two days ago that he accused supporters of the Arizona immigration law as “trying to invent a villain for political purposes.’’  Today, three (Amish?) men were taken into custody on immigration violations in connection with the failed Times Square bombing – in his own backyard.

Three men were taken into custody on immigration violations today after raids in Watertown, Brookline and other parts of the Northeast in connection with the attempted May 1 Times Square bombing, according to the FBI and state officials. 

One suspect arrested in the Bay State today had previously been ordered out of the country, a federal source tells the Herald. 

FBI Boston Special Agent Gail Marcinkiewicz confirmed today’s sweep is linked to the failed bombing in bustling Times Square.

Someone may want alert Marsha Coakley as just the other day she told a local radio host that “Technically, it is not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.”  ICE and the FBI must have missed that memo.

87% Of Americans Say English Should Be Official Language OF U.S.

Bunch of racists.

Americans continue to overwhelmingly believe that English should be the official language of the United States and reject by sizable margins the idea that such a move is racist or a violation of free speech.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 87% of Adults favor making English the nation’s official language. This is the highest level of support yet but in line with what voters have been saying for several years. Just nine percent (9%) disagree.

Eighty-three percent (83%) say a company doing business in this country should be allowed to require its employees to speak English. Eleven percent (11%) say companies should not be permitted to require their employees to speak English on the job. These views are unchanged from a year ago.

Only 10% of Americans say requiring people to speak English is a form of racism or bigotry. Eighty-four percent (84%) disagree and say that’s not true.

Hmmm, I wonder why this is the highest level of support evah?

Epic Fail. Only 25% Have Favorable Opinion Of Arizona Immigration Law Protesters

You see, the average citizen isn’t down with being called a racist for wanting our laws enforced.

Following weekend protests against the new Arizona law cracking down on illegal immigration, support for the Arizona policy remains unchanged.

However, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 25% have a favorable view of those who marched and protested for immigrant rights in major cities. Fifty percent (50%) hold an unfavorable opinion and another 26% are not sure.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters still favor legislation like Arizona’s that authorizes local police to stop and verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant. Thirty-two percent (32%) oppose such a law. Those figures are virtually unchanged from a week ago.

The support remains even though 57% of voters are at least somewhat concerned that efforts to identify and deport illegal immigrants will end up violating the civil rights of some U.S. citizens. Forty percent (40%) do not share that concern.

Watch the numbers tank even more as these protests continue.

Obama WH Lists Jobs Saved Or Created In Congressional District That Doesn’t Exist…….UPDATE: Make That Multiple Fake Congressional Districts Across the U.S.

Scroll for updates

Nice going Arizona 9th!

Here’s a stimulus success story: In Arizona’s 9th Congressional District, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending. At least that’s what the website set up by the Obama Administration to track the $787 billion stimulus says.

There’s one problem, though: There is no 9th Congressional District in Arizona; the state has only eight Congressional Districts.

There’s no 86th Congressional District in Arizona either, but the government’s recovery.gov Web site says $34 million in stimulus money has been spent there.

Did ACORN prepare this report?

UPDATE #1: The Heritage Foundation has a roundup of the bogus districts.

Forget everything bad you’ve ever heard about President Barack Obama’s $787 billion economic stimulus. Combing through the data on the $18 million Recovery.gov website you’ll find tons of Obama stimulus success stories from across the country. In Minnesota’s 57th Congressional District, 35 jobs have been saved or created using $404,340 in stimulus funds. In New Mexico’s 22nd Congressional District, 25 jobs have been saved or created using $61,000 in stimulus cash. And in Arizona’s fighting 15th Congressional District, 30 jobs have been saved or created with just $761,420 in federal stimulus spending.

The it-would-be-funny-if-it-weren’t-our-tax-dollars-at-stake punch line here is that none of the above Congressional Districts actually exist. Yet those jobs “created or saved” claims still sit on the Obama administration’s official “transparency and accountability” website Recovery.gov. As the Washington Examiner’s David Freddoso points out, it would have been nearly costless for the Recovery.gov site designers to limit the input fields so that non-existent Congressional Districts never made it into the public domain, but for whatever reason the Obama administration chose otherwise. Defending the fake data on his website, Recovery.gov Communications Director Ed Pound told ABC News: “We report what the recipients submit to us. Some recipients clearly don’t know what congressional district they live in, so they appear to be just throwing in any number. We expected all along that recipients would make mistakes on their congressional districts, on job numbers, on award amounts, and so on. Human beings make mistakes.”

Riiight.
