Sheriff Joe Arpaio Is Preparing To Make A Major Statement In Harris County (TX) Politics

Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Carl Pittman

On June 4th, 2011, the “Toughest Sheriff In American”, Joe Arpaio, will visit Houston Texas to co-headline an event in an effort shake up the Harris County Sheriff department in the upcoming elections.

“A Gathering of Patriots” is a political fundraising event featuring Sheriff Joe Arpaio, radio host Michael Berry, Ignacio Ramos, and local elected officials. This fundraising event is being held to support conservative Republican candidate, Carl Pittman, for the position of Sheriff of Harris County.

Sheriff Joe doesn’t endorse just anyone that comes across his path. He is famous for being a “tough on crime” sheriff and he looks for the same in others before throwing his support behind them. Carl Pittman is a 19 year veteran of law enforcement and currently works for the Harris County Sheriff’s Office as a criminal investigator. Pittman has run a successful real estate and mortgage brokerage business and has served his country as a United States Marine. His resume is just what you would expect of a strong candidate for sheriff.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was recently on the Sam Malone radio show and stated:

“Carl came to Phoenix to visit with me and take a tour of our facility. I like what I saw (in Carl). He has a good business and law enforcement background, and when he asked for my endorsement I gave it to him and I’m coming to Houston on June 4th to support him.”

If Pittman is successful in this primary election, he would pose a serious threat to the re-election of  Adrian Garcia (D). Garcia has drawn criticism during his first term for inviting Al-Jazeera into the Harris County jails, spending a great deal of tax dollars on marketing and PR positions instead of putting “boots on the streets”, and ordering dozens of deputies to escort Barbara Walters and other friends around Houston.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is a very influential figure among conservative voters and his endorsement carries a lot of weight. The “Gathering of Patriots” event will be held at the Humble Civic Arena. Tickets are still available at or at the gate on the day of the event.

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.

    A baby has been sentenced to death and will be executed on Friday, September 11, 2015 and Arkansas Department of HUMAN SERVICES (DHS) – Division of Children and Family Services- Central Office will facilitate the delivery of the baby’s 10-year-old to the abortion clinic.

    On August 29, 2015 20-year-old Justin Smith was arrested and charged with three counts of rape and one count of endangering the welfare of a minor. His “alleged” victim is a 10-year-old.
