I like what Donald Trump is doing politically.
I like what Sheriff Joe Arpaio is doing in Arizona.
I'll even go farther than saying I like them. America would be better as a nation if more men would do what they are doing and take a stand for and speak out plainly about what they believe.
There seems to be an effort in the MSM to lump Don and Joe in the same boat. I think that its meant to discredit Trump by association. The two issues they have in common is illegal migration and the other is the birther issue.
On illegals Joe is facing a different problem than Don. Don gets to talk about big picture policy stuff. Joe has illegals running around that he is responsible to round up and enforce various laws against. For Don the problem is theoretical. For Joe its immediate in its application. Donald isn't going to have federal officers pointing guns at him and raiding his office in retaliation for his opinions. Joe had that happen last week.
I find it disturbing that federal law enforcement is more concerned with cops who are enforcing immigration law than they are with cops who do more aggrieves things against civil rights, like no-knock warrants on non-violent suspects, SWATTING etc. You'd think a black president would be more sensitive to the civil rights of Afro-Americans (heck any Americans) than illegals. Not this one.
Joe has done more to legally investigate the birther stuff than anyone else I've heard about. Yet he's never had the whole case presented in a court. I doubt he ever will. The MSM wants to paint him as some sort of kook for even considering that there may be evidence that Obama isn't legit.
Some time ago Trump said that he didn't know if O was qualified to be president. That doesn't make Don a nut job. It makes him honest. Nobody knows beyond a reasonable doubt if O constitutionally qualified to be president. Nobody.*
So why even bring it up?
Its about trying to smear, in some way or fashion a man who is doing well politically. The only reason Donald is doing as well as he is, is because he is questioning the narrative that the MSM and both political parties are pushing.
Americans know they are being sold a bill of goods. The people doing the selling hate anyone drawing attention to the con job that is going down. We are going to see more efforts to paint Trump as out of touch or kooky as time goes on. They did the same thing to Regan.
If the Donald can do the same thing Regan did, and keep the tone light hearted while keeping the truth in the spot light, he'll get himself elected.
*If Frank Marshall Davis is Obama's biological father, then BHO is not constitutionally disqualified as a natural born citizen. In that case, the other birther issues become moot.
