Joe Arpaio’s Vigilantes Get Training and Photo Op-ed with Has Been Snow Bird Actor Steven Seagal

Steven Seagal - Vigilante Trainer

Has been third rate actor Steven Seagal, who got immunity in 2003 to testify against members of the Brooklyn and Staten Island Mob regarding mob questionable funding of some of his early films, seems suitable material to do a NRA modern equivalent exercise of the Nuclear Age’s “Duck and Cover” to be taught in our modern day schools on Joe Arpaio’s Turf in the rich suburb of Phoenix, Fountain Hills Arizona.

FOUNTAIN HILLS, Arizona (Reuters) - Action film star Steven Seagal, who racks up big body counts in his on-screen battles with bad guys, took on a new role on Saturday, training posse volunteers for controversial Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio in how to use guns to protect schools in shooting incidents.

Arpaio, who styles himself as "America's Toughest Sheriff," enlisted Seagal to train his Maricopa County posse members at a school in Fountain Hills, a (a very rich) suburb northeast of Phoenix, with children used as stand-ins for scared students.

Seagal, a burly martial arts expert turned actor, guided 48 volunteers through various aspects of responding to a shooting, including room-to-room searches, and critiqued their work.
"I am here to try to teach the posse firearms and martial arts to try to help them learn how to respond quicker and help protect our children," Seagal said.

…About a dozen people protested the event.   
"No gun should ever be in a school," said protester Cynthia Wharton, a Fountain Hills resident.   
Arpaio's 3,450-strong posse of unpaid men and women has for years helped the sheriff target drunken drivers and illegal immigrants, and chase down fathers who are behind on child support.   
Last year, Arpaio sent posse members to Hawaii to investigate the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate at the request of local Tea Party activists, a key Arpaio constituency.   
A sometime resident of the Phoenix Valley and member of Arpaio's posse, Seagal, 60, starred in big-budget films in the 1980s and early 1990s…

Queen Mary the Great of England – A Queen for all Seasons – Religious Liberty – 1555 – “Bloody Mary”

Mary I of England - A Queen for All Religious Liberty Seasons

Saint Thomas More, patron saint of Statesmen was a pussy. On his best day of defending Catholicism, he only burned a handful of Lutherans and or heretics for his King, Henry VIII.

Thomas More is the Martyr most quoted as the prime example of Catholics to emulate in the present Great Self Delusional, Self Fulfilling Prophecy Paranoia laden Religious Liberty Campaign to protect whatever from the reality of the existing dominant global secular non-christian culture.

“The time for easy Christianity is over. In fact, it never really existed. We’re blessed to be rid of the illusion. We need to be more zealous in our faith, not more discreet; clearer in our convictions, not muddier; and more Catholic, not less.” (Archbishop Charles Chaput, p.53 of Render Unto Caesar)


Mary (the Great of England)(Henry VIII’s Daughter) had always rejected the break with Rome instituted by her father and the establishment of Protestantism by Edward VI. She and her husband wanted England to reconcile with Rome. Philip persuaded Parliament to repeal the Protestant religious laws passed by Mary's father, thus returning the English church to Roman jurisdiction. 

Reaching an agreement took many months, and Mary and Pope Julius III had to make a major concession: the monastery lands confiscated under Henry were not returned to the church but remained in the hands of the new landowners, who were very influential. By the end of 1554, the pope had approved the deal, and the Heresy Acts were revived. 

Under the Heresy Acts, numerous Protestants were executed in the Marian Persecutions. Many rich Protestants, including John Foxe, chose exile, and around 800 left the country. The first executions occurred over a period of five days in early February 1555: John Rogers on 4 February, Laurence Saunders on 8 February, and Rowland Taylor and John Hooper on 9 February. 

The imprisoned Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Cranmer was forced to watch Bishops Ridley and Latimer being burned at the stake.

Cranmer recanted, repudiated Protestant theology, and rejoined the Catholic faith. Under the normal process of the law, he should have been absolved as a repentant. Mary, however, refused to reprieve him. On the day of his burning, he dramatically withdrew his recantation. 

All told 283 were executed, most by burning. The burnings proved so unpopular, that even Alfonso de Castro, one of Philip's own ecclesiastical staff, condemned them, and Philip's adviser, Simon Renard, warned him that such "cruel enforcement" could "cause a revolt". 

Mary persevered with the policy, which continued until her death and exacerbated anti-Catholic and anti-Spanish feeling among the English people. The victims of the persecutions became lauded as martyrs.
