AZ Governor Jan Brewer in Response to SCOTUS Ruling on Arizona Immigration Law S.B. 1070 … Then to Homeland Security, Napolitano & Obama Suspend 287(g) Agreements … Drop Dead Arizona (VIDEO)
HOPE AND CHANGE, OBAMA VINDICTIVE STYLE …
First Arizona Jan Governor responds to the US Supreme Court ‘s ruling on Arizona’s Immigration Law S.S. 1070, then 3 hours later Brewer and the citizens of Arizona were presented with the Obama White House and Homeland’s Security’s vindictive reprisal. Homeland Security and Janet Napalitano suspended the seven 287(g) task force agreements with Arizona law enforcement officials.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News today, Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ), the woman who signed into law SB 1070, the controversial bill dealing with illegal immigration upheld in part by the Supreme Court today, called the ruling a “victory” but added that the federal government was continuing to place Arizona “under assault.”
“I believe that this Supreme Court unanimously upheld the section that it is the heart of the bill,” she said. “It’s a victory for the rule of law and the 10th amendment.”

No sooner did the SCOTUS make their decision and the Obama Administration attacked in only the vindictive nature that they know how suspended the 287(g) agreements with Arizona that allowed state and federal authorities to work together in battling illegal immigration. Wow, the Obama Administration just declared war on Arizona. Feds set up a hotline for people to nark on the state officials for so-called civil rights violations. This is the equivalence to a ‘wanted poster’ for state authorities doing their job as voted unanimously bt the SCOTUS. What on earth is going on?
DROP DEAD ARIZONA

Following the Supreme Court decision about Arizona’s immigration law, Greta Van Susteren spoke with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who wasn’t sky in holding back her feelings about the decision. Brewer — who you may recall had a brief, finger-wagging encounter with President Obama — criticized the current administration for abandoning Arizona, and not letting her protect her state’s citizens.
“This is politics at its best,” Brewer said of the decision, expressing the rescinding of 287(g) privileges, which would allow law enforcement to use a database system to verify citizenship status. From the beginning, she said, the Obama administration has “downplayed the border situation Arizona” faces daily. And they sued the state “for trying to protect the citizens.”
It is obvious that Barack Obama must go. No one will be able to deal with a President who will not enforce the rule of law in America when he decides as a King that he does not want to. It is impossible to deal with the obstruction of the Obama Administration and Attorney general Eric Holder with regards to ‘Fast and Furious’ and now when they do not get their way, they try and punish a state. There must be comprehensive immigration reform in the US; however, Obama is hardly the honest broker to have as President to ever attempt such a change. Obama changed immigration law last week by executive fiat in stating that only a certain group of people will be granted amnesty. Even though he had previously stated he did not have the authority.
Barack Obama can kiss the state of Arizona goodbye in the 2012 Presidential election.
UPDATE I: More from AZ Gov. Jan Brewer and Obama says Drop Dead Arizona from the Politico. Also, the commentary from Rush Limbaugh regarding ‘The Regime Refuses to Enforce the Border and Tells the State of Arizona to Go to Hell’. Limbaugh went on to say, “He has written off the state of Texas. He’s written off white, working families. He’s now written off the state of Arizona. Arizona was a state that was in play. I don’t even understand why, but it was a state that was in play according to all the experts and all the presidential polling data. Well, not any longer! Arizona is… He doesn’t care.”
“It just is incomprehensible to think that this has all taken place today. And it ticks me off. I think that it should tick the people of America off,” she added. “And it’s almost become apparent that they can do whatever they darn well want! They don’t want to enforce their laws. They won’t let us help them enforce their laws.” [...]
Brewer also criticized the policy shift in an interview with John King of CNN.
“They arbitrarily single out Arizona and sent a bomb, if you will, across our bow and made Arizona once again a target,” she said. “The people of America ought to be outraged. This is absolutely an assault.”
This morning on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Arizona Governor Jan Brewer endorsed Mitt Romney ahead on next week’s Arizona primary. Currently, Romney leads in the RCP average polling in Arizona by 10.7%. Arizona hosts its primary, along with Michigan, this coming Tuesday.
Brewer said she viewed Romney as the most electable candidate to challenge President Obama this fall, and that she made her conclusion after meeting with the candidates and after a debate this week in Arizona.
“I have decided that I am going to publicly endorse Mitt Romney. I think he’s the man that can carry the day,” Brewer said. “I think Mitt is by far the person who can go in and win.”
AZ Gov. Jan Brewer & Barack Obama Have Words Over Her Book as Prez Gets Off Air Force One … “He’s Very Thin Skinned”
Barack Obama, Lost in Smallness, Part 87 …
As the GOP Primary continues to see who shall take on Barack Obama in 2012, let us not forget who is the present occupant of the White House and how “small” and Un-Presidential he has acted in as the “Thin Skinned in Chief”. President Barack Obama and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer had a dust up as Obama got off Ir Force One yesterday. As per The Politico, Brewer stated that “The One”got in a huff over things that Brewer wrote in her book, ‘Scorpions for Breakfast’. Check out the Gateway Pundit and the pic of Brewer pointing a finger at Obama and not backing down to the bully tactics of Obama. Maybe the WWE will have these two in a cage match this summer for Wrestlemania.
It was a tense moment on the tarmac.
President Obama, alighting from the stairs of Air Force One in Phoenix this afternoon, was greeted by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, who handed him an envelope and the two exchanged what appeared to be some heated sentiments. At one point, she pointed her finger at him.
Asked afterward what happened, Brewer said, “He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast.
“I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt,” she said, according to a pool report. “He didn’t feel that I had treated him cordially. I said I was sorry he felt that way but I didn’t get my sentence finished. Anyway, we’re glad he’s here. I’ll regroup.”
In an interview on FOX with greta Van Susteren, Jan Brewer discuses the incident on the tarmac between herself and Obama.
Governor Jan Brewer discussed her confrontation with Obama today at the Phoenix airport. Brewer told Greta Van Susteren that Obama ambushed her when he got off the plane about a book she wrote.
As the Weekly Standard opines, Thou Shalt not write bad things about the Obamamessiah. They remind us that this is not the first time that Obama has shown his “smallness” and acted in this manner, remember Bobby Jindal.
You go girl, nice to see there are some politicians with some stones who will not cower to Obama. Too bad there were not more in DC who would take Obama to task for his actions and pettiness.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill into law that would authorize a security fence to be built in Arizona along the US-Mexican border. What are the odds that Obama will have AG Eric Holder sue Arizona for having the audacity to securing the border.
A bill signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer authorizes erection of a security fence along Arizona’s portion of the U.S.-Mexico border, either in a compact with other states or by itself.
Spokesman Matt Benson declined immediate comment Friday on why Brewer signed the bill Thursday and on whether she plans to invoke the authority.
The bill does not specify a cost or make an appropriation but says the state would use donations, inmate labor and private contractors.
