Sheriff Arpaio should run for Senate. 

Joe Arpaio is a true hometown hero. Most recently he served as the Sheriff of Maricopa County Arizona. Maricopa county is home to over four million residents; a population larger than 20 states. His leadership in that position earned him the title of Americas toughest sheriff. 
Sheriff Arpaio has a long and respected career in law enforcement. He served with honor as a military police officer in the Army. Following his discharge he served briefly as a uniformed policeman before joining the Drug Enforcement Administration. 

Sheriff Joe has a passion for law enforcement as evidenced by his tenure of over 25 years with the DEA. He served several overseas assignments and supervised the Arizona field office. 
Following his retirement from the DEA Arpaio became the elected sheriff of Maricopa county in 1993. He remained in that position until 2016. 

For 23 years he served the residents of Maricopa County. During his tenure he instituted many new policies and procedures that are still in place today. He felt strongly that inmates shouldn’t be living in a life of luxury. They should serve their time and get out. This no-frills approach to corrections caught on. Sheriff Arpaio frequently held seminars for other law enforcement agencies around the world to share his ideas and promote responsible technique. 

Sheriff Joe is a true conservative. He cuts excess spending anywhere he can. For example, he uses his chain gang to provide janitorial and construction services to the county. This act alone saved millions of taxpayer dollars. Arpaio strongly supports equality and maintained the only all female chain gang in the world. 

Sheriff Joe reduced the cost of daily meals to below .60 cents an inmate per day. He had programs to provide medical treatment to animals who had been abused. He had deputies assigned to a dead beat parent detail to enforce child support orders. He started and maintained a massive posse program which provided hundreds of thousands of free hours of police work to the county. 

All these activities combined demonstrate Arpaio’s critical thinking and problem solving skills. They speak to his high level of credibility, which is beyond reproach. 

I was overcome with sadness and dismay to see Sheriff Joe leave MCSO because I knew our county was loosing the most professional and effective Sheriff we have ever had. 

I have heard protesters yelling that his experience as Sheriff doesn’t qualify him to run for Senate. I disagree. I believe he is the perfect candidate for Jeff Flakes seat. 

Arpaio has all the qualities that a strong senator should have. He has spent his life protecting those he swore to defend; now he has a chance to continue that legacy. Sheriff Joe is a Trump ally and will stand hand and hand with the President in advancing his agenda. 

I’m ecstatic to hear that he may be pursuing Flakes senate seat. He will be able to effect change on a national level not just within Maricopa County. 

Sheriff Joes best quality is his word. He doesn’t beat around the bush and he isn’t politically correct. He says what needs to be said and stands behind it. If Sheriff Joe makes a campaign promise he will follow through. He will tell you exactly where he stands on an issue and he won’t back down. 

The United States will benefit greatly from having Joe Arpaio as a Senator. 

Democrats are racist! 

The liberal left is continuing to insult President Trump and claim he is racist. The entire conservative base has been dealing with this frivolous claim recently but President Trump seems to be the MSM’s favorite target. They are playing clips of him helping with disaster relief in Puerto Rico and claiming he doesn’t care. Simple logic check- if he didn’t care he wouldn’t be on the ground providing relief work. He wouldn’t be helping families rebuild. It is obvious he cares for these Americans deeply and wants to help them get their lives back on track. 

Late show hosts, celebrities and liberal elites are attempting to disgrace President Trump by calling him Racist while he’s the only one with boots on the ground helping. They are spewing this nonsense from their Hollywood mansions while our President is doing manual labor to aid Americans who need his help. The President provided substantial aid to Puerto Rico and is working with FEMA and congress to develop strategies to strengthen the island. The idea that he isn’t helping Puerto Rico because of their skin color is absurd. 

We know that the left prefers feelings to fact and often espouses claims with no factual basis. Conservatives are often subjected to these juvenile tactics. When we respond with an actual policy position supported by statistics and facts we are promptly attacked. These attacks are carried out by the liberal base and usually involve little to no evidence. Frequently it’s some form of a pre-coined phrase accompanied by fake outrage. 

The left has been calling President Trump and other Conservatives like myself Racist recently. Since they have been throwing around this nonsense on a daily basis I think it’s only fair to respond. Let’s take a closer look at which party is actually racist. 

The Democratic Party loves to pretend they are champions of civil rights. They claim that black Americans must identify as democrat because republicans are inherently racist. This isn’t the case though. Since the democratic party was founded in 1829 they have fought against every piece of civil rights legislation. 

President Lyndon Johnson summed up the democrats position “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for 200 years.” The democrats don’t truly care about advancing the quality of life for African Americans- they simply care about advancing their own agenda. This was true throughout history and it’s true today. 

The Republican Party was founded as an anti-slavery party. From our inception we have been fervently opposed to racism and slavery. The first republican President, Abraham Lincoln, died in this pursuit. The emancipation proclamation let the world know the GOP wouldn’t stand for racism…. and President Lincoln was shot because of it. John Wilkes Booth, a democrat, assassinated Lincoln in hopes of preserving slavery. Democrats literally killed to protect slavery. 

The democrats founded the klu klux klan and supported their agenda within every level of government. Nathan Bedford Forrest, a prominent founding figure in the KKK was friends with President Woodrow Wilson. Wilson, a democrat, even promoted the 1915 KKK propaganda video “The Clansman” by screening it in the White House. He Re-segregated many federal agencies and he used the KKK to attempt to scare and intimidate folks into following him. 

Democrats had a clear mission- to keep the south segregated and enslaved. 

In 1857 when the US Supreme Court heard Dred Scott V. Sandford they ruled that slaves aren’t citizens, and must not be considered citizens. They are property. The Supreme Court voted 7-2. All 7 justices to support slavery were democrats. The 2 justices to dissent and want to abolish slavery were both republicans. 

-Democrats opposed the 13th Amendment 
To abolish slavery. 

-Democrats opposed the 14th Amendment 

Giving citizenship to blacks. 

-Democrats opposed the 15th Amendment 

giving voting rights to blacks. 

These Amendments only passed because of universal republican support. 

By the year 1900 over 22 black congressman had been elected to the US House as republicans and were fighting for equality and human rights. The democrats didn’t have a single black congressman at this time. In fact, they wouldn’t elect a black man to congress until 1935. 

It was evident that their strategy of keeping blacks enslaved and therefore unable to vote wasn’t going to work. That’s when President Lyndon Johnson summed up the democrats position “I’ll have those niggers voting democrat for 200 years.” The democrats suddenly decided that if blacks were going to vote then they should at least vote for democrats. 
Democrats, ignoring the facts, will likely continue to attack conservatives and President Trump for being racist. It is nonsense. We have been steadfast in our support of civil rights. Our facts are strong. Their feelings are weak. Don’t bring a feeling to a fact fight friends. You’ll loose every time. 

Republicans aren’t racist. Democrats are.

The Wall

It’s estimated that we have 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States. Our border is not secure and anyone can cross. The question that no one has a coherent answer for is: “What do we do with the 11 million illegal aliens?” 
We endured an entire presidential election listening to members of both parties introduce terrible ideas, revisit failed policies and generally argue about how to approach the issue. President Trump was the first person to bring up the topic of illegal immigration; in fact he mentioned it in his announcement. He is correct. We must build a wall. However, we need to have a sensible solution for dealing with immigration issues first. 
We have 3 options. One option is to simply immediately deport all 11 million aliens. We should not do this. We must first have strong mechanisms in place to prevent their re-entry. If we execute mass deportations with our current border fence the problem will reoccur almost immediately. 
Another option is to ignore the immigrants all together. This seems to be the current method. It isn’t working. We must remember that every illegal immigrant is a criminal. Unlawful entry into the United States is a crime. Visa-overstay is a crime. While we can be sympathetic to the adversity they experience in their home countries our focus must remain on America First! 
Finally, we could offer a one time waiver and give all 11 million aliens citizenship. This is the most popular idea from the left. The democrats desperately want to give them citizenship. The problem is- if we give these aliens citizenship we are incentivizing their illegal behavior. Some Liberal senators have argued this would be a one time amnesty and wouldn’t happen again. However, we have heard this rhetoric before. In 1986 we passed the Simpson-Mazzoli act. 3 million aliens were given permanent residency. Despite being told it wouldn’t happen again we have heard many politicians argue it should. 

This is a complex problem and I think it’s important to look at it from different angles and to understand the reality of the situation. We are never going to be able to prevent 100% of illegal immigration. That is simply not possible. Our goal should be to dramatically lower the number of aliens arriving illegally and strive to have stronger enforcement. 
We can not and should not be considering doing that until after we have created a fortified wall. The cost to deport the aliens would be astronomical and they would simply cross back over; thus, undermining the entire process. We absolutely must build a solid and impenetrable wall to prevent aliens from crossing and to aid in maintaining our sovereignty. 
Once the wall is completed and functioning we begin the process of deporting the illegal aliens. Our new wall will dramatically decrease illegal crossings and our border patrol will be more effective and able to perform their job without hindrance. 
President Trump made an outstanding decision to increase funding and employment numbers within the Border Patrol. 

America is a sovereign nation and we must protect our borders. We need to build the wall as soon as possible. Those illegal aliens who will be deported who wish to apply for residency in the US will be welcomed to do so provided they follow the same legal process anyone else would be required to. We must be cautious to not incentivize their illegal behavior. 

Diversity on college campuses is under attack!

I’m appalled that in today’s world there is so little diversity on college campuses. Universities are considered the pinnacle of American values. They represent the culmination of everything our society believes in.

Each year the incoming class embarks on a journey to open their minds and become exposed to new concepts and ideas. This process, in theory, serves to allow young adults the opportunity to expand their horizons and spark creativity.

Administrators are quick to remind students that they should foster relationships with people who are dissimilar to their typical friends.

Schools will tell you they go to amazing lengths to ensure discrimination doesn’t occur and they provide every student with equal and unabated access to school resources. They will tell you they allow students to express themselves in every way imaginable with the aim of fostering diversity.

They have created guidelines on the proper use of pronouns so as not to offend those folks who identify as transsexual. They have support sessions for practically any imaginable group who feels they are in some fashion being oppressed.

Admission offices apply affirmative action models. Activities offices sponsor groups such as the black student union, Chicano American society, etc.

The reality is undeniable- college campuses are an assemblage of tolerance. GLBT, trans, handicapped, minorities and all genders of students are represented and treated admirably by one another.

Understanding this I’m sure you are questioning what I am so upset about in my opening statement. There is one Group who is still outnumbered, under represented and constantly disenfranchised. A group of marginalized minds with opinions and thoughts that are considered peripheral.

Conservatives are under attack in the education arena. Merely expressing a thought or idea that is considered too right can result in harsh criticism and punishment. On average liberal professors outnumber conservative professors by more than 10-1.

It is not unheard of for institutions to have no college republicans group despite having a genuine interest by the student body. In some cases there isn’t a single faculty member to supervise the group. Not a single republican professor on an entire college campus.

Liberal acceptance is an oxymoron. Democrats are only accepting to the extent it supports their agenda. They don’t support free speech. The Democratic Party is terrified of young republicans because they know that conservative values and ideas work every time. This is the reason they almost never attack us on policy positions. Instead, they manufacture fake outrage and traffic it. Democrats as a whole respond more to emotion than fact.

Amherst College has a college republican group. The group held their first meeting of the school year this week and were greeted in an absurd fashion. Liberal “tolerant” democrats plastered signs around the college republicans meeting space that read “This is our campus, not the Klans.” To be clear, neither the ACR nor the Republican Party as a whole supports Klan activity. The culprits continually prostitute themselves to their worst vial thoughts. Their actions are filled with malice and hostility.

This is far from a solitary incident. Liberals across the nation have been protesting conservatives and relentlessly trying to associate our political party with discriminatory and racist groups. They want the world to believe that republicans are racist. Interestingly, it is the Democratic Party that has deep roots in racism and institutionalized hatred of minorities. After all, President Lincoln, a republican, is responsible for the emancipation proclamation.

Republicans are no stranger to defending against the lefts bizarre fever dreams- this is no different. Our young members (college republicans) are unwavering in their beliefs and won’t be deterred. Conservatives are resolute and won’t let the left undermine our agenda with their insanity.
