Wait, it wasn’t a Tea Partier who was arrested, and the threat was made by an Obama supporter against a public official on the right side of the aisle… but I’m sure the Tea Party drove him to it.

In any case, if the tables were turned, this would be the lead story on all the nightly newscasts:

A 33-year-old Phoenix man is being held by sheriff’s deputies in Phoenix in connection with an Internet death threat against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio for his ongoing investigation into the legitimacy of President Obama’s birth certificate.

Adam Eugene Cox was taken into custody at his home Friday by Phoenix deputies, along with sheriff’s officers from Knoxville, Tenn., on an unrelated warrant for assault and is being held as the prime suspect in the Arpaio death threat investigation, said Maricopa County Sheriff’s spokesman Jeffrey Sprong.

Deputies served a search warrant and seized a computer and other evidence from Mr. Cox‘ home. The alleged threat against Sheriff Arpaio came to light in October 2011 in which Mr. Cox reportedly said in an Internet posting that the sheriff and his family would be killed.

Maricopa County officials said the postings read, “I plan to kill Arpaio first. He will be filled with a thousand bullet holes before the year is out. I promise you this … He will be buried 10 feet under and his whole family will be murdered along with him.”

The officials said the postings also indicated that Mr. Cox is an avid supporter of Mr. Obama and that Sheriff Arpaio’s ongoing investigation into the legitimacy of Mr. Obama’s birth certificate may be behind the threat to kill the sheriff. They said Mr. Cox‘ mother confirmed that her son is an Obama supporter and the Knox County Sheriff’s Office said he has a history of assault.

Damn those violent Tea Partiers. They just refuse to tone down the rhetoric.

    First, congrats to both Sheriff`s Depts. for their good work stopping this Tea Party extremist … no wait, … Doug … are you sure this nut is an Obama supporter ? We are told they`re all peaceful n stuff !!??

    Well, if true, that makes two Obama supporters arrested in one day; the other, a young "new media" guy from Iowa who stole the identity of a prominent republican there and planned to frame him for some illegal activity ! OOOOOPS !!

    That's the left keeping it civil again.

    Liberal progressives are a wart on society's ass. They are destructive to the civility of a nation and destroy the family unit. They are the enemy of decency, civil obedience, peace and tranquility which is at the core of peaceful, successful nation

    And those are their good points.

    And on their better days. It only goes downhill from there… Fleebaggin', cop car cr@ppin', under-age ( under tarp ) gang rapin' and fraudulent VOTE creatin'!

    This way the intent is to make us feel 'lucky' when their only skimming our paychecks and privately owned businesses and getting all up in our grill. You remember Private Ownership?

    Somehow or another this has to be Sarah Palin's fault.

    With the Atlanta,GA judge hearing the Obama-elligibility case and about to rule "default", I wonder if Judge Malihi will be getting death threats from the "civil leftists" ?

    Are Grassley and Issa being threatened ? Are Soros and the DNC picking people way outside the inner and outer circles to give the impression of no-connection to them ?

  9. Marshall_Will on January 29th, 2012 12:56 am


    Way to big a notion to just sweep under the carpet. The net effect would be ( as always ) that, as a Conservative, if you become too high profile and vocal, we can and WILL single -you- AND your family out!

    Nice family ya' got there… be a shame if something were to, ya' know, 'happen' to them? We've been told absolutely -nothing- about Jared Laughner's motivations, principles and M.O. He IS for all practical purposes, the Lee Harvey Oswald of our day. When Soros-Civility bots couldn't hang it on the Tea Party, it suddenly became "as mad as a hatter" and cold case.

    Grassley's not being threatened. They're trying to bribe him instead. Won't work. Grassley may not be the brightest bulb on the string but he's honest as the day is long.

  11. SignPainterGuy on January 29th, 2012 2:08 pm

    Thanks; I believed him to be honest, but if bribery doesn`t work, then something stronger will most likely be tried. The loss of a great deal of power, influence and money are at stake !

  12. SignPainterGuy on January 29th, 2012 1:18 am

    No doubt, if the left could find one tea-leaf to connect them, there`d be 24/7/366 (this IS leap year, ya know) coverage and finger pointing ! They knew it "all along !"

    "Adam Eugene Cox was taken into custody at his home Friday by Phoenix deputies, along with sheriff’s officers from Knoxville, Tenn., on an unrelated warrant for assault" ( Can you say pre-disposition for violence? )

    With their umpteen Occupy _____ websites and get the word out email lists, there are/were/will be plenty of kook's to chose from. And endless list of self-disenfranchised, unattached, unHINGED 18-35 males ( I refuse to say 'men' ) with no future nor the desire for one to wind up like a toy monkey and and prompt as they see fit.

    No one political or connected to the party. Just a nice man dressed like he just crawled out from under an OWS group-grope tarp while you were searching subversive websites on "how to get even with the system" at Starbux.. He really seemed to understand…. Wouldn't it be a hoot if Gabby's attack was ultimately connected to the Dimaprogs..? A real 'hoot' I tell ya'.

  14. SignPainterGuy on January 29th, 2012 2:13 am

    Just a regular guy with no political leanings or aspirations ! No known connections to any political groups or affiliations !

    You buyin` it ? *cough*

    **BREAKING **

    Rick Santorum and Family have had to admit Bella, their youngest (3 yrs old) Daughter to a hospital. She was born with Trisomy 18, a genetic disorder in some ways similar to Downs Syndrome, but with little chance of survival past the first week.

    I will be praying for Bella and the Santorum Family ! Rick plans to return to FL as soon as and IF possible !

    You know this guy rants like a Jihadi against Jews, is his marxist indoctrination so complete, as in the #occupy crowd, that Americans may respond as did Argentina in the '70's, to "Disappear" this socialist sect into the ocean.

    […] Doug Powers finds yet another crazed TEA Party member making death threats […]

  18. Truesoldier on January 30th, 2012 1:48 pm

    Actually arresting this guy probably saved his life. Somehow I have a feeling that if this guy had actually tried to gun Sheriff Joe down it would not have ended good for the would-be shooter.

  19. SignPainterGuy on January 30th, 2012 3:54 pm

    Sheriff Joe gets LOTS of threats from within and without the country from common crooks to Mexican drug cartels to Holder`s Dept. of Just Us, so he has a good defense team; lawyers and shooters !!

  20. Truesoldier on January 30th, 2012 4:46 pm

    And here is another one of those peaceful liberals:

    "Friends and relatives said Susan Poff and Robert Kamin of Oakland were the perfect pair to adopt a foster child.

    They had dedicated their careers to helping others escape poverty, she as a physician assistant in a city-run clinic in the Tenderloin and he as a clinical psychologist for inmates in the San Francisco County Jail system.

    But now, less than a decade after they adopted, their 15-year-old son stands accused of strangling both Poff, 50, and Kamin, 55, then hiding their bodies in the back of the family's PT Cruiser…

    Co-workers said Poff and Kamin were having some arguments with their son, some of it having to do with him spending too much time in the Occupy Oakland encampment, but nothing that sounded beyond the scope of typical teenage rebelliousness."

  21. SignPainterGuy on January 30th, 2012 5:09 pm

    I wonder if the parents tried too hard to perfect their son who decided he could better perfect himself without them and amongst the filth of the Oakland OWSers !?

    These days, a lot of folks who are doing the right thing arent rewarded, and a lot of folks who arent doing the right thing are rewarded, he said. And thats going to express itself politically in 2012 and beyond until people feel like once again were getting back to some old-fashioned American values.
