“The Joe Show” reaches the theater

There will be several showings of The Joe Show, a documentary about Joe Arpaio, 10 years in the making, at the Harkins Arrowhead Fountains 18 Theater, 16046 N. Arrow Head Fountains Ctr. Dr, Peoria, AZ 85382, the week of October 3.

In the film, Arpaio is caught on tape justifying his birth certificate investigation by saying, “You’ll get more money [in campaign contributions] than you’ll know what to do with.”

Here is a brief clip from Randy Murray, the creator of The Joe Show.

This is one of those stories where I have an ethical dilemma. I have a 2nd hand report of how much money the film’s producer Randy Murray says “more than you’ll know what to do with” is. While the source is solid, it is devoid of context, and most importantly, I don’t know what Murray bases the number on. So for now, I will just leave a hint. [NSFW]

    But will it be as big a hit as “Oh My! The George Takei Story, Starring William Shatner as George Takei”? Talk about your perfect casting.

    Friday evening and the kiddies at BR are soiling themselves because Zullo called in to Gallups show. There’s another entry about him being in Washington doing research at the Library of Congress and explaining why they missed the March deadline.

    Is there nothing Birther’s won’t believe?

    This was posted on the Fog-bow regarding the ACE Reporter, Mr. Foreman, and his most recent article about unpaid volunteer Mike Zullo and his journey across D.C. This comment is classic.

    woodworker
    Today, 07:04 PM
    I posted the following to the Foreman article:

    Mr. Foreman, where to start:

    First, you refer to Mr. Zullo as “Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s top deputy” and as “Lt. Mike Zullo.” So, in the first 10 words of your article, you make two major, and easily verifiable, mistakes. Mr. Zullo is not the “top deputy” and in fact he is not a deputy, a reserve deputy or any sort of sworn police officer. He also is not a Lieutenant or any other sort of rank in the Sheriff’s office, other than as a volunteer. I cannot confirm or deny that he was in DC on Thursday morning, so maybe you were correct on the next 8 words.

    Moving on, after you fluff Mr. Zullo for a bit, you state that he is “very closed mouthed about what he is doing, because he gave up his career for this investigation. . .” What career: he was a used car salesman and for all we know, he still is. As to his being “closed mouthed,” that may have to do with the fact that every time he has opened is, he has been shown to be an absolute buffoon, with every factual assertion he has made about this matter being shown to be demonstrably wrong or false.

    Next you report that Mr. Zullo “maintained that this matter will become public in the coming months and that people in the Capital City should expect many future visits by him and members of the Maricopa County Arizona Sheriff’s office.” He has been maintaining for three years that this matter will become public in the coming months: to that all I can say is that Scarlett Johansson will fall in love with me before Mr. Zullo’s “investigation,” becomes public.

    Then you report that “Zullo confided to Newsblaze about ongoing “talks with DC officials” in high places in official Washington, who are moving the investigation forward.” Again, we have been hearing this same bull**** for the last three years. Add Charlize Theron to the women falling in love with me.

    Moving along, you state that “Critics and presidential eligibility activists have been wondering whether the investigation will affect the November midterms. The Cold Case Posse head addressed that by saying that “certain members of the public would want to see that. However Sheriff Arpaio is not politically motivated and this is taking its due course as a law enforcement investigation and political motivations have no bearing on the release of this information.”” Give me a f***ing break: Arpaio has never done anything that is not politically motivated.

    Next, your report that Zullo also remarked “We really thought we were going to the press conference in March.” However, developments in evidence and the criminal case precluded an early spring 2014 release of the investigation.” Yes, that would be the discovery that the “universe-shattering” information that they were planning on releasing was the result of a con-man conning Mr. Zullo and Sheriff Arpaio’s deputies and once the Phoenix New Times ran a story publicly disclosing the stupidity and culpability of Mr. Zullo and Sheriff Arpaio, they ran for the hills.

    Lastly, you report that, “As to the legacy of the investigation, the veteran detective remarked “this is how law enforcement investigations should work” in terms of the police public cooperation.” “Veteran detective????” This is the only matter he has ever “investigated.” Although he served as a policeman many years ago and allegedly as a private investigator some time ago, there is no evidence that he has ever investigated anything serious, i.e., any felony investigation.

    In summary, on what planet are you living – did you do any basic due diligence or did you just cut and paste from stuff you found on the internet? You almost make Jayson Blair look like a real journalist.

    CarlOrcas: Friday evening and the kiddies at BR are soiling themselves because Zullo called in to Gallups show

    They don’t seem to have noticed that The Big Reveal™ has now been downgraded to merely “gut-wrenching”. Which is bad news if, as suggested, they’re not going to be doing it for a couple of months: according to my calculations, at the current rate of decay, sometime around Columbus Day it will hit “mildly disturbing”, and by Thanksgiving will have passed through “eye-catching” and officially be “of no concern”.

    But the news wasn’t all bad: Zullups also promised the faithful … wait for it … more VIPs!! Perhaps this batch won’t vanish like handkerchiefs at a magicians’ convention the way the last ones did.

    I found this little ditty online that seems to capture the essence of Zullupsness:

    I wanna go back to Dixie
    I wanna be a Dixie pixie
    And eat corn pone ’til it’s comin’ out of my ears
    I wanna talk with Southern gentlemen
    And put my white sheet on again
    I ain’t seen one good lynchin’ in years
    The land of the boll weevil
    Where the laws are medieval
    Is callin’ me to come and nevermore roam

    Regarding Mr. Randy Foreman, “News Blaze Reporter” we find this tidbit in RawSory.com:

    “It turned out Randy Foreman was going to CPAC as Washington correspondent for Newsblaze.com, a web-based outlet which Foreman says has “hundreds of correspondents” besides himself supplying fresh content every day. Unfortunately this doesn’t pay very well, so Foreman makes ends meet by driving a cab.”

    Then on the Carl Gallups’ Freedom Friday show on September 5, 2014, Mike Zullo commented:

    “Randy [Foreman] actually was helping me at my request to do some things [in D.C.] and we’re not going to discuss what those are. Though he has met me out here and we spent about four hours together doing a little research but….even Randy doesn’t know much.”

    This, translated from Super Secret Zullo Speak, means:

    Randy Foreman picked me up in his cab at the airport and we aimlessly drove around D.C. for four hours researching the lay of the land in D.C. and Randy doesn’t have a clue what I’m researching while riding inside a cab for four hours.

    The most interesting comment Zullo made to Gallups on 9/5/14 :

    “If you look at half of the stuff out there, I should be in prison.”

    Guilty conscience, Mr. Zullo?

    It is fascinating to watch. I sometimes think what we’re dealing with at BR is one person frantically moving from one log in to another posting one message after another.

    Strange bunch.

    An interesting comment by Corporal Zullo in the latest Free Dumb Friday lovefest about his investimagination (which he is now carefully distinguishing from “the criminal investigation”):

    “We are using technology that the general public would have no idea even exists, and we’ve made some startling discoveries on that front”

    Which sounds eerily similar to the description of the scam Dennis Montgomery ran on the feds. In which, it turned out, the general public didn’t know the technology he was using existed because, well … it actually didn’t exist.

    Looks like his next press conference could be even more hilarious than the previous ones. Could it be that Montgomery has convinced Zullo that he can recover the metadata from the original document that Roxy was supposed to have erased?

    Be sure to tune in for the next exciting episode of “CSI Phoenix: Clown Seen Investigating”…

    We already know the Kommandant is not real bright, not at all creative, and is real slow on the uptake, so yeah, I’d say highly possible still trying to pretend Montgomery has something of value.

    “Ran – nailed it.”

    Yes indeed. Maybe when this whole charade is over, Mr. Montgomery will offer Inspector Zullo a job…..that doesn’t exist? “Yes, Inspector Zullo, I’ve developed a patented Kryptonite Accumulator (TM) that can only be successfully sold by experts with used, personal transportation device sales experience. You are our man! “

    Very much like the nonexistent Arpaio birth certificate investimagination.

    Come on he lost his own car in the parking garage and spent about an hour looking for it. He forgot he gave an interview for the globe and had Reilly going to all the grocery stores because the globe claimed that the forger had been caught. He told everyone to hide their cell phones in his glovebox because he thought people would be spying on them and only lord monkton could save them.

    Well, let’s be fair:
    a. It was a big multi-level garage,
    b. 742 of the 765 cars parked in it were Crown Vics, and
    c. His “FTY CENT” county plate hadn’t arrived yet.

    During the Freedumb Fleece Day show with Carl Gallups and Mr. Zullo on 9/5/14, Gallups and Zullo laughed about Zullo being broke. This brings up the question, how does an unpaid volunteer exist working for free 24/7 and support a family? Who or what is picking up the tab for this publicity stunt called an “investigation”?

    Curious George September 9, 2014 at 10:52 pm #

    Listening to Mr. Randy Foreman tonight on blogtalkradio was in a word, disappointing. He has bought into the line that Zullo is a law enforcement officer and a lieutenant with the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. (Not true!) If he can’t get the basics right, everything that he says then becomes suspect. It begs the question, has Mr. Foreman naively bought into the deception, or has he intentionally become part of the deception? The people who are being misled are those who will suffer the most.
