·        McCain Tells Native American To “Get Out Of Here, Now!” See photo of Sen. John McCain reportedly attempting to release from a hand shake when he saw that Adriano Tsinigine held a sign that reads Protect Oat Flat.”  The photo cutline reads, “…Met Mr. McCain and asked for a photo. Then I pulled out my 'Protect Oak Flat' card and when he seen it, he looked me right in the eye and said "Get out of here, now!" Haha, this ma'ii is just afraid of us, because of how powerful we are...”  apache stronghold     Editor’s note: McCain was among Gov Doug Ducey’s group - including  Secretary of State Michele Reagan, House Speaker David Gowan, Senate President Andy Biggs, Sen Carlyle Begay and LD13 Senate Don Shooter - that visited the Navajo Nation Fri., Aug 15  for the Navajo Code Talkers Day festivities.

·       LD13 PC Scott Powelson responds to  appeals-court-rejects-arpaio-challenge-to-obama-deportation-amnesty  Rant on Cost:  Sheriff Joe and the other sheriffs involved in this battle of illegals, need to do their due diligence. They need to establish a system whereby they record the exact time and cost of their arrests for every crime they end up picking up

ü  Investigation time,

ü  Time costs of deputies and other employees

ü  Transportation costs

ü  Incarceration costs

All these costs need to be added up. The Sheriff/Police Offices need to document fully each and every time they pick up secondarily the same individual and the amount of time, the amount of money it costs to do this all the way down the line. Then he would have proof to submit to the courts. He’d have the ability to prove that it costs the county and the state. They can calculate the cost all the way across the board.

Had they done that, even with the kids in school, they could have defeated this attitude years ago even with the Supreme Court allowing the kids into the schools. The decision that was made back then was the plaintiff didn’t arm themselves going to court with a cost analysis; they had no way of proving what it was costing them to educate these millions and millions of illegal alien children. The Supreme Court didn’t address it because they did not submit any evidence of harm or costs.  What the court said to Sheriff Joe is the same thing with the same effect.
