Border towns want to brush the border problem and crime under the rug.

It’s apparent that these corrupt border mayors are on the cartel’s payroll. They would prefer that Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu would look the other way while law enforcement officers and law abiding citizens are killed by criminal Mexicans that have no business being in this country in the first place.

This has everything to do with money and nothing to do with the security of our state. I don’t think these Democrat Mexican mayors have any credibility. Don’t forget, the mayor of Nogales was arrested for corruption.

Nogales mayor Von Borstel and his father Octavio Suarez Garcia Sr. were arrested on multiple corruption, fraud, and bribery charges by the state Attorney General's office. A thief is a thief!

Arizona border mayors ask Pinal sheriff to tone it down

NOGALES - The mayors of three Arizona border cities are asking Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu to tone down his comments about border security problems.

The mayors of Nogales, San Luis and Douglas say the statements are hurting their towns.

In a letter sent to the sheriff, the mayors say they would appreciate it if Babeu would refrain from cultivating a culture of fear.

To be honest, I don’t think Sheriff Babeu likes being told what to do. Hopefully, he’ll launch a huge anti-smuggling campaign in response. Nothing the sheriff says is going to hurt these sorry excuses for outposts of civilization. These places were shit holes long before Sheriff Babeu came along.
With Shawna Forde, Pima County had a very weak case but after a nearly two year media campaign managed to convict her. She could not get a fair trial in Pima County. The public feels the illusion of safety when a person is held accountable for a horrible crime whether they are guilty or not.
As we know, many persons have been cleard of crimes in death penalty cases. Some states have gone as far as putting executions on hold because so many of their inmates were found innocent. This will more than likely happen here. I met Shawna and didn't see her as a killer, especially the killer of a child.
Pima County is the most left leaning and corrupt county in the Sate of Arizona. As we discovered following the mass shooting in Tucson on January 8, 2011, Sheriff Dupnik is a fool who has no business serving as sheriff.

Convicted Arizona activist eligible for death penalty

The 42-year-old Forde was convicted Monday on two counts of first-degree murder and other charges in the May 2009 home invasion in Arivaca, a desert community about 10 miles north of Mexico. Killed in the robbery were 29-year-old Raul Flores and his 9-year-old daughter Brisenia.

April 2010: My visits with Shawna Forde

It’s not often that I make jail house visits, but I decided to go see Shawna Forde because we share some common political viewpoints and I thought people sitting in jail awaiting trial would like to have visitors, any visitor, so I chose to make the trip to Tucson.

Upon entering the Pima County Jail, I signed in at the front desk and took my place at a viewing booth. Visitations are conducted via video monitor which is very much like using a web cam at home. Perhaps, some day in the future, jail visitations could be conducted via the Internet from the comfort of home. I can’t see any reason why that would be a problem.

During the first visit, Shawna didn’t look any worse for wear, considering that she has been locked up for eight months. She was even able to smile. I was glad to see that she was keeping up to date with current events. I would think contact with news from the outside world could help one cope.

My second visit was a totally different story. Apparently, Shawna had some serious issues with the conditions and treatment she was receiving since my last visit. She was noticeably agitated and appeared to be seriously stressed out. Shawna did not look like the same person I saw a couple of weeks before.

She said that she was “written up” by a corrections officer for simply talking. I was beginning to think about where I was. I thought I saw an American flag on the pole outside the building. For a moment, I thought I might have been at some Cold War Era gulag in Communist Romania. Nope! I was still in the U.S.A.

I think it’s ridiculous that the corrections officers prohibit the prisoners from talking. Understandably, jails are structured environments with rules and regulations that are required to maintain safety and order. A "rule of silence" is going too far, especially when many of the prisoners are awaiting trial and have not been convicted of a crime.

I am especially opposed to disciplining or restricting a pre-trial detainee for simply uttering words. After all, anyone accused of a crime is supposed to be assumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. (Or so I thought.) I couldn’t help but notice that Shawna had already been convicted by the correction officers‘ “kangaroo court“ as well as in the news media.

"...It is a good country. It suits us. And what we assert is that we are not going to surrender it to somebody else or allow other people, no matter what their merits, to make it something different. If there is any changing to be done, we will do it ourselves." --Cong. Rec. April 8, 1924, Rep. William Vaile of Colorado

After much publicity: The Vekol Valley is still very popular among drug and human smugglers.

We conducted another patrol in the Vekol Valley this weekend. The Sonoran Desert National Monument has been a hot bed of criminal activity from south of the border.

During one of our patrols on Saturday afternoon, I recovered a Minnesota veteran’s Gulf War On Terror special license plate. I found it in a thickly vegetated wash and it was still valid. It couldn’t have been out there for very long.

Apparently, a criminal Mexican stole this hard working patriot’s vehicle to use as a load vehicle to bring drugs or illegal aliens into the country. Only sub-human trash would steal a war veteran’s vehicle. People like this deserve to find themselves gagging and choking from the end of a rope.

I also found documents containing personal information belonging to the registered owner. I sent him an email reporting my find. I’m sure he would like to know what happened to his vehicle.

On Sunday afternoon the registered owner of the vehicle, a 1996 Chevrolet Suburban, contacted me in regards to his license plate. He informed me that the vehicle was totaled and that he ended up selling it to a junk yard for scrap.

More often that not, these vehicles are rendered useless and the owner suffers the loss. Remember, this is a war veteran that served his country only to have his country look the other way when it comes to border security.

Nearly 4 tons of pot seized south of Maricopa

A multi-agency task force formed to reduce drug smuggling in Southern Arizona netted more than 7,500 pounds of marijuana valued at $6 million in the Vekol Valley during a 4-day sting, according to a release issued by the Arizona Department of Public Safety late Thursday.

In addition to the pot, intelligence gathered and shared among agencies involved in the task force led to 110 arrests, recovery of nine stolen vehicles and the seizure of four firearms.

As you can see, serious tonnage is passing through the Vekol Valley drug corridor. Imagine how much gets through undetected.

Arizona sues feds over border security

Arizona took the unusual step Thursday of suing the federal government over its immigration policies, claiming it has failed to secure the border and protect the state from an "invasion" of illegal immigrants.

About half a dozen other states have pursued similar, and unsuccessful, legal efforts over the past two decades.

Gov. Jan Brewer said the intent of the lawsuit, and the state's priority, is to force the federal government to protect Arizonans.

Arizona and Arizonans must do whatever it takes to bring down the idiots in the federal government. We’ve had enough of their bull shit and we’re not going to take it anymore. We must secure our future, even with violence, if need be.

"History has been written in blood, not with ink. No letter, editorial or book has ever rallied the people or stopped tyranny. We understand this principle and are forever propagandizing the people to write letters to the President, to Congress...Woe be unto us if they ever see the futility of it, lay down the pen and employ the sword." – Harold Wallace Rosenthal, 1976, Jew.
