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…”
Old Harry “Poopy Pants” Reid is just mad as all tarnation at John McCain for basically correctly quoting him in a radio ad running in South Carolina. He apparently can’t grasp the fact that what he said was disgusting and shows his lack of ability to grasp the basics of being the people’s represative when he said, and I quote, “The War IS Lost” Video of him saying it is below.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) is not at all pleased with a new radio ad being run by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in South Carolina.
According to CNN, McCain’s new ad blasts Reid for saying the “war is lost” earlier in the year. McCain has been one of President Bush’s biggest backers on his Iraq war policy.
“‘Seven months ago, Democrat majority leader Harry Reid said the war in Iraq was lost,” the ad begins. “Well, he was wrong,'” CNN reported.
CNN also noted that “Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, McCain’s most prominent booster in the state, speaks for the majority of the spot, saying ‘the troop surge is working’ and that ‘we need a president prepared to win.'”
Reid is very unhappy with McCain new radio ad, and a Reid aide fired right back at the Arizona Republican tonight.
“While I understand that Senator McCain is fighting to revive his failed presidential campaign, his remarks are at odds with the vast majority of the American people, who are demanding a responsible end to this war,” said Jim Manley, Reid’s spokesman. “These kinds of attacks — and his consistent support of a failed strategy that has kept our troops mired in an endless civil war in another country — will only undermine Senator McCain’s credibility with voters.”
Manley added: “Democrats have given the troops a pay raise, increased funding for veterans and most importantly have fought to give our soldiers what they deserve — a strategy for success. We will continue to oppose Bush Republicans like Senator McCain who are committed to a failed war strategy and to standing in the way of critical needs at home.”
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.

This isn’t new, but it is sickening. This began with a photo and ends with this. I want to see how the left explains how the man who wants to be the leader of the free world could possibly fathom the idea that this is in any way representative of the man who would or should be our president. This isn’t the first time he spat in the face of America, he “took a strong stand” by not wearing the American Flag lapel pin. Is this a big deal, noooo, but he brought it to everyone’s attention on his own as if he was trying to make a statement to the left.
“The truth is that right after 9/11 I had a pin,” Obama said. “Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we’re talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security.
“I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest,” he said in the interview. “Instead, I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testament to my patriotism.”
Will he be president? Not on my watch! Click to see it.
