There is no one who can convince me that is a mere coincidence that Trump chose to pull the trigger on the Aepaio pardon now, while the massive hurricane is about the beat the hell out of the Texas gulf coast.

He has no shame. One might think that he would be focused on the welfare of the people in the path of Harvey.

Arpaio is a racist and racist pardoned him.

You think that Trump ordered Harvey so he could pardon Arpaio?

He also used the cover to issue his order banning transgenders in the military. I think it was just a typical late Friday hate and bigotry dump. The storm was just a convenient accident. This guy is destroying 150 years of social progress. It is embarrassing to be an American right now.

He stated he was going to ban trans from the military weeks ago.

The cartoon president and the rest of The Deplorables are those who "understand" the principle of law and the principles behind the US Constitution and such precisely as long as they agree with their personal sentiments. Their thinking stays laser focused on that actual sole standard. They're intellectual and emotionally fat too fragile to handle any kind of actual disagreement between their delicate personal sentiments and what's really ethical (or true). Their only standard for what's right and ethical and real and true is their personal sentiments. There are zero tools in their reasoning toolbox to actually navigate such concepts, only their personal sentiments. All of reality is just different flavors of that same intellectual and emotional cotton candy for them, and they have no trouble imposing a cotton candy diet on the rest of us given the means and opportunity--it's for our own good after all.
 
We need to stop giving them the means and opportunity.

What a moronic conclusion. I did not say that. He chose to drop the hammer when Harvey hit.

Sigh

Let me guess. You are 100% okay with Trump pardoning Arpaio?

Pointing out given "errors" doesn't correct the underlying cause.
 
It just giving the underlying cause fuel and a platform to flourish.

Trump is your man if you are a White Christian Straight Male.  Anybody else, look out. ;-)

So Arpaio gets a pardon but the guy who punched someone after Trump said he'd pay his legal bills is still waiting.


I suppose this isn't the most egregious Presidential pardon ever made (I'm looking at you, Gerald Ford) but it's not doing anything to correct a miscarriage of justice.

Also white straight male, raised Christian but now Nunya.* Trump is a waste of carbon, oxygen, and space, definitely not "my man." His fellow New Yorkers have recognized for decades what is obvious to the most casual inspection: he is a con artist, a hypocritical attention hog, whose word is not worth the hot air it takes to blow it out his pie hole.

Say what you want about Ford's pardon of Tricky Dicky from Yorba Linda. I didn't much care for it when it happened, but in hindsight it may have spared us from years of rancorous divisive wrangling. SCROTUS pardoning Sheriff Joe is both worse and more petty than that, in that it disregards the legitimate authority of a judge to rule on Constitutional matters.



*Nunya bidness. My spirituality is not something I share with strangers or casual acquaintances, and I do not appreciate attempts to evangelize me. There was a time when I took my kids to UU services on Sunday mornings, and they seem to have turned out OK. I am deeply thankful not to live under the dominion of a theocracy.

From the Independent:

Enrique Acevedo, a news anchor for the popular Spanish-language channel Univision, tweeted: “This is all you need to know about Trump’s promise of law and order: He fired James Comey and pardoned Joe Arpaio.”

Well, that's at least a good start!

So I guess you don't see a problem with that?

Btw, watch out for the rain -- it's supposed to be pretty heavy over the next four days.  If you see a guy building a big boat with a lot of animals around, worry. :)

Thanks! We're keeping a sharp out for the weather. So far, so good, in our particular area.

Did this Sheriff get a trial by jury?

No.

Why not? Would he not have had the right to a jury trial? Misdemeanour - no right to a jury trial?

More background on Sheriff Joe.

Evil, sadistic man.

Or, as DD might say, fake news from the MLM.
