I’m not kidding.
The above video features “Calypso” Louis Farrakhan calling the man who will probably be the next President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama… wait for it… wait for it…
I’m glad you’re on his side.
This story has many many facets, so if you have any questions I will try and answer them as asked. Basically here in Az. we have a huge immigration problem. We have possibly hundreds of thousands of illegals walking the streets, working in our offices, cleaning our babies asses, you name it they have made their way in and at this point the left is going to make sure that they stay. But along with these “Undocumented workers” come the lowest criminals you could think of. Undocumented Rapists, Undocumented Murderers, Undocumented Hit & Runners, Undocumented Cop Killers. The latter being what this is all about.
Phoenix Police Officer Nick Erfle was shot after he and his partner approached three people for jaywalking and obstructing traffic on 24th Street, one block north of Thomas Road.
The suspect carjacked a vehicle and took the driver hostage. About an hour later, an unmarked special assignments unit spotted a car and suspect matching the carjacked vehicle’s description.
They began surveillance and managed to box in the vehicle at 27th Avenue and McDowell Road. The suspect pointed his gun at the hostage and he was shot and killed by an officer. The suspect was later identified as an illegal alien with a felony record. He had been deported in 2006 and illegally re-entered the country.
The driver of the vehicle was not injured. The two females who were with the suspect when he was initially stopped were taken into custody for questioning.
Officer Erfle had served with the Phoenix Police Department for 8 years. He is survived by his wife and two children.
Mrs. Julie Erfle, the widow of slain Phoenix Police Officer Nick Erfle was recruited last week by Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris to be a spokesperson for Immigration Reform.
At a news conference on Thursday, she expressed frustration with the immigration debate in Phoenix since her husband was killed eight months ago.
Erfle called on Gov. Janet Napolitano to set up a nonpartisan task force of experts that would push for comprehensive immigration reform within Arizona. The task force’s goal, she said, would be to emphasize public safety while preserving the dignity of all people.
“We need comprehensive immigration reform that puts safety and humanity on an equal footing,” Erfle said. “We cannot have one without the other.”
In doing so, she said, she would honor the memory of a man who gave his life in service to the community.
“I believe his death can also be an inspiration – an inspiration for positive change,” Erfle said. “I hope that today will be a first step in immigration, and not a last step.”
Really? REALLY? Well besides being an unusual area to become interested in it is also more interesting in regards to what’s going on right now in Phoenix with not only Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris but with his boss Mayor Phil Gordon. Mayor Phil Gordon is in a fight for his life as the citizens of Phoenix are signing a petition to have him recalled.
A public-interest group in Phoenix is collecting signatures in hopes of forcing a recall election for Mayor Phil Gordon, who they believe has failed to deal with the problem of illegal immigration in the community.
The group — American Citizens United — has until August 28 to collect nearly 24,000 signatures from the city’s 521,000 registered voters. Spokesman Phillip Quihuis believes Phoenix has turned into a sanctuary city because Gordon is a sanctuary mayor. And he contends the sanctuary policy has been devastating to the nation’s fifth-largest city, essentially making the Arizona capital the “kidnapping capital of the nation.”
“We’re also right on the top when it comes to identity theft…[and] auto thefts because so many ‘coyotes’ and drug runners are stealing cars up in the Phoenix area [and] taking them down to Mexico…to transport drugs and illegal aliens back up here,” he details.
Phoenix citizens want a mayor who is going to stop turning a blind eye to the situation, Quihuis asserts, and actually do something to clean up the city.
So… I know this is a lot to take in and this post is long but this story is incredibly complicated. Anywhoooo, Bruce Jacobs a local radio personality at 550 KFYI and outspoken critic of both Immigration Reform and Jack Harris and Mayor Phil Gordon. So Bruce Jacobs went on the radio Thursday morning and blasted Julie Erfle for doing something so stupid as placating the same group that wants to open the borders to Undocumented Rapists, Undocumented Murderer’s, Undocumented Hit & Runners, Undocumented Cop Killers. I actually was listening to this “rant” when he did it and found it a bit hard to listen to, but to be honest I have to agree with him. To listen to him on Thursday CLICK HERE to listen to him on Friday CLICK HERE. But more importantly Phoenix Police Chief Jack Harris decided they needed to do a press conference yesterday morning and released this statement.
August 25, 2008
On Thursday, August 21st, 2008, KFYI radio personality Bruce Jacobs engaged in a verbal attack on the character of Mrs. Julie Erfle, the widow of slain Phoenix Police Officer Nick Erfle. Officer Erfle paid the ultimate price when he was gunned down in the line of duty on September 18, 2007. Today, August 25, 2008, at 4:00 P.M., City of Phoenix Public Safety Manager Jack Harris will be holding a press conference in response to the unwarranted attack on Mrs. Erfle. The news conference will be held in the Police Chief’s conference room of the Main Police Station at 620 W. Washington. There will not be a question and answer session following the conference.
To hear the news conference click here. So, how did we get here? Well as it turns out who do you think is Jack Harris and Mayor Phil Gordon’s biggest critic and isn’t afraid to get on the radio and say so, everyday? Bruce Jacobs!
So basically the left is trying to stop free speech by putting a helpless, hopeless, poor grieving widow out front of a topic that quite frankly has been already decided on, WE ARE NOT IN FAVOR OF AMNESTY! IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK OR STOP ILLEGAL ALIENS FORM ENTERING THE UNITED STATES AND BREAKING OUR LAWS! BUILD OUR FENCE!
Quit putting these people out in front of the issues that you think are going to get you reelected, or in this case RECALLED in the hopes that no one will speak out against them for fears of being looked at as mean or nasty. In this case thank God we have someone like Bruce Jacobs who isn’t afraid of getting out there and saying it like it is. You wanna hear what he has to say about this?
In response Bruce Jacobs says, “My comments were never aimed at Julie Erfle the widow. I empathize with the tragic and senseless death of her husband, fallen hero, Nick Erfle. However anyone who wants to be an advocate, promoter, or spokes person for amnesty is opened to be criticized.”

UPDATE 8/27/08 Here is the newest video of Bruce Jacobs responding to Jack Harris, with some stuff about the Democrats 3-Ring-Circus thrown in.
“Being a widow does not mean you’re off-limits…”
Christmas. Or should I say the “War On Christmas!” The “War On Terror” is just a bumper sticker but the “War On Christmas” is now a legislative reality.
Yesterday on Capital Hill there was a vote, actually several votes regarding observances of several religious holidays.
Excerpts from three recent House resolutions regarding religious observances:
HR 635: “Acknowledges the onset of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting and spiritual renewal, and conveys its respect to Muslims in the United States and throughout the world on this occasion.”
HR 747: “Acknowledges the onset of Diwali and expresses its deepest respect to Indian Americans and the Indian Diaspora throughout the world on this significant occasion.”
HR 847: “Acknowledges the international religious and historical importance of Christmas and the Christian faith.”
Whoa, wait a minute… What was the vote on that last one? This couldn’t be right… 372-9?
Surprise surprise, several Democrats drew the line at recognizing Christmas.
Nine Democrats voted No – Ackerman, Clarke, DeGette, Hastings (FL), Lee, McDermott, Scott (VA), Stark and Woolsey.
10 Democrats and 1 Republican voted “Present.” – Conyers, Frank (MA), Holt, Payne, Schakowsky, Schwartz, Wasserman Schultz, Welch (VT) and Yarmuth (Which to ME is the same as voting no).
This is interesting because of this group 17 of the 18 D’s above voted FOR the resolution honoring Ramadan!
What the hell? This vote wasn’t to get extra days off, or to funnel government funds into buying Christmas trees or more ornaments for the White House Christmas tree, it was simply to recognize that Christmas is important to CHRISTIANS! I find it hard to believe that the Democrats listed above could possibly represent the people that they were elected to represent. The people in their districts should be outside of their offices pelting the buildings with ornaments and fruitcakes. The left is constantly misrepresenting the people of this country and the idea that anyone could vote against what is obviously the holiday observed by the majority of Americans is INCONCEIVABLE!

To prove that my comment was true that this is “nothing more than a branch of the Bush-Derangement Syndrom Tree. Hate the right no matter what. Hate Christians because they live their lives by the word of God not the word of the government.” From the Seattle PI
McDermott said the resolution was a Republican tactic designed to draw attention from pressing issues in Congress, including legislation to boost funding of the State Children’s Health Insurance Program, or SCHIP. President Bush vetoed a bill Thursday that would have expanded the program.
McDermott supported House resolutions this fall to recognize the Islamic holy month of Ramadan and the festival of Diwali, celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains. He drew the line at Christmas, he said, because the resolution only stated “obvious facts” that Christianity was the predominant faith in the U.S. and that many Christians and non-Christians celebrated Christmas.
“It’s Christmas time. There’re lots of Christians in the U.S. Hurray for Christmas. It’s ridiculous,” McDermott said, giving his take on the resolution.
Rather than “wasting time on this stuff,” he said, people should be protesting Bush’s vetoes of expanding health insurance for children.
“We’re talking about Christmas, and we do not care about kids in the state of Washington,” McDermott said.
H/T Hot Air
It came to light a few weeks ago that the CIA/Men In Black had used water-boarding to extract information from 3 al-Qaeda suspects. Those suspects being Khalid “Shake Shake Shake” Mohamed, Abu Zubaydah and a third as-of-now unnamed suspect. Zubaydah, the first high-ranking al-Qaeda member captured after the September 11 terrorist attacks, broke 35 seconds after he was subjected to the technique, said John Kiriakou, who served as a CIA interrogator in Pakistan. After that Abu Zubaydah began providing interrogators with information that led to the disruption of “maybe dozens” of planned attacks, Mr Kiriakou said.
Mr Kiriakou said he was given a detailed description of the waterboarding by fellow team members. The next day Abu Zubaydah told his captors he would tell them whatever they wanted, Mr Kiriakou said. “He said that Allah had come to him in his cell and told him to co-operate, because it would make things easier for his brothers.”
Yeah right. the only thing that came to him in the middle of the night was his yellow streak and it’s one thing all of them have in common. They’re all cowards. But the real question is who are the people who are publicly chastising the GOP for using these techniques and why now? This is all stemming from the public being told that tapes of these interrogations had been destroyed. This is about 50 blog posts worth of info so I am just going to say this, the CIA had permission from it’s lawyers to destroy those tapes and to be honest with you, good for them. The lefty media would have just leaked it and shown our enemies exactly what to expect should they be captured. So burn away. You can go to Hot Air for more details. More importantly who knew about this torture and for how long? I’ll tell you who… Congress, specifically, Nancy Pelosi.
In September 2002, four members of Congress met in secret for a first look at a unique CIA program designed to wring vital information from reticent terrorism suspects in U.S. custody. For more than an hour, the bipartisan group, which included current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), was given a virtual tour of the CIA’s overseas detention sites and the harsh techniques interrogators had devised to try to make their prisoners talk.
Among the techniques described, said two officials present, was waterboarding, a practice that years later would be condemned as torture by Democrats and some Republicans on Capitol Hill. But on that day, no objections were raised. Instead, at least two lawmakers in the room asked the CIA to push harder, two U.S. officials said.
“The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough,” said a U.S. official who witnessed the exchange.
Individual lawmakers’ recollections of the early briefings varied dramatically, but officials present during the meetings described the reaction as mostly quiet acquiescence, if not outright support. “Among those being briefed, there was a pretty full understanding of what the CIA was doing,” said Goss, who chaired the House intelligence committee from 1997 to 2004 and then served as CIA director from 2004 to 2006. “And the reaction in the room was not just approval, but encouragement.”
I highlighted her name, San Fran Gran Nan. She knew about this and had no objection to it. That is until now. Why now? What has happened between then and now? Hmmm… Could it be the new poll numbers show a favorable outlook on Iraq? Naw, they wouldn’t do that would they? Damn right they would. Blame Bush is their motto and this is a rather poor attempt to do so in light of the fact the the war is turning around and they are all being made to look like cowards and quitters. So how do you turn your 11% favorability rating around? You use the oldest trick in the book… Nothing up my sleeve, nothing up my other sleeve…
Cowardice & Ignorance is the name of this post and it couldn’t be more fitting. You voted them into power and look who’s paying the price for it. The lefty’s credibility (if they ever had any), our soldiers in the field and politics as a whole. How could you trust these cowards, liars and all around dick-holes? But then again, anybody but Bush right? Because he’s a liar right? Yeah right.
These are the people who want to take our government over. These are the people the left listens to. These are the people who are allowed to continue living in our great country. I swear if I saw someone treating our flag like this or speaking in front of me like this a violent side of myself that I keep well hidden would slowly come to life. I swear they would meet me in the middle of the night and they would be fed the flag they desecrate. Wake up America. This will be your voice if the left is allowed to come to power more than they are now.
UPDATE 11/20 Below Story
How could an elected official who is payed to represent our needs and wants be so completely out of touch with us? This isn’t like it’s the first time we’ve seen the “woman” behind the curtain. It seems that all of
their attempts to wrangle the immigration issue is coming from another planet. How long will it take for the public who vote for people like Pelosi to understand that when she and other democrats are seemingly ignorant to the people’s wishes and come out saying that the people just “don’t understand the issue” are just calling them stupid? Some polls say that 80% of America want something done about illegal aliens. What do they want done? Certainly not this…
Nancy Pelosi tries to force the Salvation Army to hire people who can’t speak English.
It’s been less than a week since New York’s Sen. Hillary Clinton and Gov. Eliot Spitzer had to climb down from their support of driver’s licenses for illegal aliens. Now House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has moved to kill an amendment that would protect employers from federal lawsuits for requiring their workers to speak English. Among the employers targeted by such lawsuits: the Salvation Army.

When will they get it? When will they stop acting like they have the moral high-ground? I know, they won’t stop until their Bush-Derangement Syndrome has somehow proven him wrong. Their children will hopefully see them for what they are. Disgraces.
Democrats controlling the House of Representatives will try again to bring American combat in Iraq to an end when it debates legislation this week tying new war funds to troop withdrawals, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday.
The legislation, similar to a bill President George W. Bush vetoed earlier this year, “gives voice to the concerns of the American people” over a war that is now in its fifth year and “with no light at the end of the tunnel,” Pelosi, a California Democrat, said.
As early as Friday, the House will debate the plan that would give Bush only $50 billion of the $196 billion in new funds he has asked for to continue fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of the money would go to Iraq.
The House repeatedly this year has passed legislation aimed at ending the Iraq war, only to see it die in the Senate or killed by Bush.
Congress is expected to consider the rest of the funding sometime next year.
Pelosi said the money would fund the war for another four months. But as they have done in the past, House Democrats will try to attach conditions requiring the Pentagon to immediately begin withdrawing some of the 169,000 troops in Iraq and with the goal of completing the withdrawal by December, 2008.
Pelosi sidestepped a reporter’s question on whether congressional support for the idea has grown enough to overturn an inevitable veto by Bush.
H/T Michelle Malkin
You voted her in. You put them in charge. Now you give them single digit approval ratings, this is why. We have a good economy, no terrorist attacks, unemployment is down, people are making money, the happiness is driving the left MAD!
Now we all know that Democrats are all a little slow. Not that they’re retarded or anything, I mean socially… Unless of course you’re Michael Savage and the you really do believe they are retarded. But I digest… Anywhooo here’s the proof that they are slow, apparently House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s own party is turning on her, apparently because of a perception among California Democrats that she has not done enough to shake up the status quo in Washington, D.C., according to a Field Poll released Friday.
That’s funny because the rest of us turned on her, what, 8 years ago?
Voters’ views of Pelosi, Congress have dimmed
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s own party is turning on her, apparently because of a perception among California Democrats that she has not done enough to shake up the status quo in Washington, D.C., according to a Field Poll released Friday.
Congress overall is doing even worse with California voters, with an approval rating sagging to 30 percent or below for only the seventh time in the past 15 years, the poll of 1,201 registered voters found. Both Pelosi, the San Francisco Democrat who became speaker this year, and Congress as a whole have fallen short of voter expectations since taking over both houses, poll director Mark DiCamillo said.
