The Obama Administration has shown themselves to be a bunch of bullies. Obama’s Attorney General thinks nothing of bullying states like Texas and South Carolina – blocking their popular voter ID laws on phony “racism” claims. Obama himself recently even tried to bully the Supreme Court over his healthcare takeover, arrogantly ignoring 209 years of judicial precedent in a naked attempt to intimidate.
But they seem to have met their match in Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The Administration, particularly the Justice Department and its Civil Rights Division, has declared total war on a man who is perhaps closest to a national icon of the fight against illegal immigration and amnesty as exists in America. They have investigated his office for 3 years. They have supported race-based class action lawsuits against him. They have even stripped him of 287(g) cooperation with DHS. All in an attempt to force him to capitulate, to back down, to give in to Federal takeover of his department in order to shut down his operations against illegal aliens.
Two words: EPIC FAIL. Arpaio is fighting harder than ever before, even in the face of what looks like imminent Federal lawsuit by the DOJ.
This guy has more backbone than anyone we’ve ever seen – this simply isn’t common among elected officials. There is no way he’s going to let Obama’s DOJ bully him around, especially when it is only about politics. He says if they want to take him to court, he’s more than willing to call their bluff and make them substantiate their allegations, something he says they’ve refused to do thus far and something he doesn’t think they want to do in court, since they simply don’t have the goods.

Way to go, Joe!
