Today one of America's most important conservative leaders is under brutal assault from the radical left, and he desperately needs conservatives from across America to rally to his defense. His name is Russell Pearce and he is the President of the Senate in Arizona.
In a replay of Wisconsin, labor unions, radical green movements and left wing Latino organizations are pouring money into a recall effort against Senator Pearce. The recall launched by these shadowy groups spending buckets of cash of paid signature gathers.
While Arizona Governor Jan Brewer makes headlines around the country for standing up to Obama and the unjustified regulations and lawsuits spewing from Washington, DC, it is Senator Pearce that is her backbone and the legislative leader that has shepherded the conservative agenda thorough the endless labyrinth to make it law.
Because Senator Pearce is so effective, he is despised by the left. He helped vanquish the Janet Napolitano allies that run the Democratic Party in Arizona from power. They see the personal destruction of Russell Pearce as a pathway back to the power they lust.
In many ways he is an unlikely leader. He spent most of his career in law enforcement. He served at every level rising to become Chief Deputy for Maricopa County Sheriff's Office. It was here that he learned how to make tough choices under the mentorship of America's most famous Sheriff, Joe Arpaio.
Republicans elected him as Senate President, and at that time he promised he, "would be vigilant in the promotion of the core values that our Founding Fathers so long ago sacrificed and committed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor for this Republic."
His legislative record over more than a decade of service is legendary.
In 2006 he authored Proposition 100 to deny bail to illegal aliens who commit serious crimes; he authored Proposition 102 to deny punitive damages to any illegal alien who sues an American Citizens; he authored Proposition 103 to make English the official language of Arizona and he authored Proposition 300 to deny day care and tuition assistance to illegal aliens.
In 2007 he wrote the toughest employer sanctions law in the nation to stop illegal employers from hiring illegal aliens by revocation of their business license. What he calls, "The profits over patriotism crowd." Arizona won a 5-3 victory in the United States Supreme Court as a result. It is one of the largest states' rights victories in decades.
