Phoenix, Arizonia Billboard Depicting Trump As Nazi Was Funded By Taxpayers

A waste of taxpayer’s money for art that benefits no one (except Beatrice Moore) and is a partisan political cause.

Beatrice Moore, a long time art benefactor, community organizer and arts advocate, owns the billboard. The billboard was designed by artist Karen Fiorito. The Nazi artwork was debated at an annual local art celebration, Art Detour, that is publicly funded.  The event is funded by Artlink (a group founded by Beatrice Moore) with help from the city of Phoenix.

In July 2016, the city of Phoenix granted Moore and her art companies $3,500, and in August 2016, the 2017 Art Detour event received $1,800.

A billboard depicting President Donald Trump as a Nazi in downtown Phoenix, Ariz. was funded with taxpayer dollars, according to Judicial Watch.

The conservative watchdog group obtained records that reveal the controversial billboard was commissioned by an “arts advocate” paid by a U.S. city to “diminish barriers.”

The billboard depicts an angry looking Trump wearing a Russian flag pin on his lapel. The president is shown in front of two mushroom clouds, which are in the shape of laughing clowns, and two dollar symbols that are modified from the Nazi swastika symbol.

According to records from the city of Phoenix, Moore received thousands of dollars in grants for a program she runs called Grand Avenue Arts & Preservation (GAP), which is where the billboard is located.  FreeBeacon

Omar Mateen worked with private security group G4S Secure Solutions as a private security officer in Florida.

The role requires 28 hours of classroom training by a licensed instructor.  Officials said he had two firearms licenses, a security officer license and a statewide firearms license, all expiring in September 2017.

A guy who has been investigated for ties to terrorism twice can be hired by a global security firm
that is a government-contracted company.

A statement from G4S, the firm that managed security for the London Olympics in 2012 [British troops would be deployed at the 2012 Summer Olympics due to a shortage of adequately trained G4S security staff], read: “We are shocked and saddened by the tragic even that occurred at the Orlando nightclub. We can confirm that Omar Mateen had been employed with G4S since Sept 10 2007. We are cooperating fully with all law enforcement authorities, including the FBI, as they conduct their investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the friends, families, and people affected by this unspeakable tragedy.”

Mateen worked with the company since 2007. It takes on public contracts and has done work with the US government.

They have provided security personnel for the Department of Homeland Security, US Customs and Border Protection at the US-Mexico border, and helped transport undocumented immigrants from urban areas.  Independent UK

Two Convicted In Killing Of Border Partol Agent Brian Terry

Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry

Two illegal aliens using Fast and Furious weapons have been convicted in the killing of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Fast and Furious, Eric Holders and the ATF gun-tracking operation. The stated goal was to sell and then track guns as they were transferred to key figures in Mexican cartels. leading to their arrest and the dismantling of the cartels. Over 2,000 weapons were purchased by straw buyers and transferred to the cartels. The transactions were videotaped. No GPS were implanted in the guns. There was no way to track the guns, until the guns were found at crime scenes.

The only reasonable explanation for such an asinine program was to increase the dismal number of guns seized or found at crime scenes in Mexico that were from the U.S. Then use those numbers as a pretext for new gun control laws.

Guns from the ‘Fast and Furious’ gun-tracking operation have been found at crime scenes on both sides of the Mexico–United States border,
and at the scene of United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was killed December 2010. The Islamic terrorist in the Garland, Texas attack purchased a gun under the ‘Fast And Furious’ operation.

Two men were convicted of murder charges Thursday in the killing of a Border Patrol agent whose death brought to light the bungled federal gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious.

The jury found Jesus Leonel Sanchez-Meza, also known as Lionel Portillo-Meza, and Ivan Soto-Barraza, guilty of all counts. They face a sentence of life in prison.

The 2010 killing of agent Brian Terry exposed the Fast and Furious operation in which agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed criminals to buy guns with the intention of tracking the weapons. But the agency lost most of the guns, including two that were found at scene of Terry’s death. Arizona Daily Star
