Lacey and Larkin are true Idols to America

There are very few people that I know on this Earth that I would immediately say are clearly evil. Unfortunately, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of the Maricopa County is one of them. I thank God for the fact that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have the courage to stand up against this wretched man on a daily basis.

If it was not for them reporting the various incidents that “America’s Toughest Sheriff” was guilty of, then we would never be able to find justice.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have made it their life’s work to continually fight the evil that comes from the actions of Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

He may call himself the toughest sheriff here in the United States, but Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin know that what he calls tough is really a cover-up for viciousness.

Through the news outlet Phoenix News Times, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin recently reported on Sheriff Joe Arpaio illegally bursting into the home of a Latino family and burning it to the ground with the family’s pets inside.

It all began when Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Police Department received an anonymous tip via a phone call that claimed the home was being used to transport drugs for a local gang. Sheriff Joe Arpaio felt the tip was legitimate and used it as a reason to illegally enter the home.

After discovering there were no drugs present, Sheriff Joe Arpaio set fire to the home for reasons that only he knows.

Another evil that the Phoenix News Times had a report on was the time when Sheriff Joe Arpaio allowed a pregnant woman’s child to die. The woman was of Hispanic heritage and had been detained when her husband was arrested while awaiting day work.

She told them that she had been on her way to see the doctor to get her abdominal pain examined, but the Sheriff ignored her concerns. Several hours later, the baby died due to a late third-trimester miscarriage.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are not ones to sit by while such evil is committed right before their eyes. They took the war to Sheriff Joe Arpaio and revealed his atrocities to the world. When Sheriff Joe Arpaio realized that the evidence was concrete against him, he decided he would find a way to silence the two men.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio rounded up those loyal to him, and he illegally entered the different homes of these two men and arrested them when they failed to surrender their evidence against him.

This evil, illegal detention would backfire on Sheriff Joe Arpaio when it made national news. The pressure put on the Sheriff became so great that he was forced to let the men go.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin would settle with the Maricopa County Police Department for $3.75 million. They would use this money as starting capital for the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

This Fund exists to continue reversing the many evils that Sheriff Joe Arpaio is committing on Hispanics.

End Citizens United Raises Money Against The Big Money 20

Meet the Big Money 20

When one mentions politicians such as Ted Cruz, Ryan Paul, Mike Bost, and Mike Coffman, there are some obvious patterns and shared traits. For one, they are all Republicans who are currently in Congress. These individuals, alongside 16 others, however, have another common characteristic that has been assigned to them by the End Citizens United political action committee. They are all members of the latest “Big Money 20” list of politicians that this organization consider to be the weakest link of Congress.

The Criteria of Selection

The reason why the organization felt compelled to place these individuals on a list comes from their behavior towards donations. It is no secret that special interest groups donate large sums of money during candidates’ campaigns. The purpose of this is to get the prospective election winner’s favor, which will affect the way they vote during bill passing stages later on. The people that were placed on the Big Money 20 list are all notorious for accepting large donations. A lot of them have gone as far as to place special interest groups’ views before their own.

What is the goal?

End Citizens United was formed to help fix the unfair political system in the United States. After the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Citizens United in 2010, this PAC was created to fight against everything that this judicial precedent creates. This includes treating corporations as individuals, allowing limitless donations from special interest groups, and more.

So when it comes to these politicians who are currently serving in Congress, End Citizens United attempts to do everything in their power to prevent the re-election. According to the president of the organization Tiffany Muller, this PAC will not hesitate to use everything within their power to reach the goal.

The Means

End Citizens United is a lot more than an idea. They currently have over 3 million members who have joined and made donations. Even though there is a limit of $5,000 that PACs can receive in donations, this organization gathered $25 million in 2016 that went towards the same purpose of affecting the election. Their goal for the upcoming election in 2018 is up to $35 million. Experts, however, disagree that there will be any major impact that the organization will have on the election as most of these 20 politicians are not very vulnerable.

Regardless of the final outcome, End Citizens United remains one of the most powerful PACs in Washington. Their membership count keeps increasing as seen by the amount of money they are raising year-to-year. Ultimately, it just seems like a matter of time before this organization starts having a mainstream impact on the politics in the United States.

The Mission of The Human Rights Foundation

Thor Halvorssen is a human rights activist who is the founder as well as the president of the Human Rights Foundations which was founded in 2005. As a human rights activist, Mr. Halvorssen rejects any political label despite the fact that he has been labeled many times as being a classical liberal. Mr. Halvorssen is particularly passionate about uncovering scandals of dictators and tyrants of countries that have been persecuting the people. With over 20 years of experience, Mr. Halvorssen remembers the exact day to which he began the fight for better human rights around the world. Mr. Halvorssen states that the year was 1989 and he started out as a young age due to the fact that he was heavily influenced by his parents and their actions with human rights.

Thor Halvorssen understands the necessity of the fight for human rights. In 1993 his father was falsely imprisoned in a Venezuelan jail despite the fact that his father was a well respected diplomat. The only reason his father was ever released was thanks to the avocation and influence of several human rights organizations. Thanks to Mr. Halvorssen, his organization now protects human right globally and focuses especially on the human rights of those that live without a choice in closed societies. The mission of The Human Rights Foundation is to preserve freedom and the importance of basic rights all around the world. This non-profit organization believes that basic rights should never be unattainable or even considered to be a luxury.

With current offices located in New York, this non-profit organization has received support and funding from individuals and companies from all over the world with a similar belief to the foundation. The Human Rights Foundation can also be spotted at Capitol Hill on an annual basis when representatives come and educate the public on the necessity of preserving and spreading basic human rights. In present day, this foundation has already done so much by freeing political prisoners, giving education to the public in closed societies, as well as using films and other means of entertainment to further educate the world.
