The Piercing Truth

This is right from the dictionary and seems to describe Albuquerque, Berry and Schultz. Fascism (f ash ,izem) noun An authoritarian right wing system of government and/or social organization. (in general use) extreme right wing, authoritarian, chauvinistic and/or intolerant views or practices. Fascism tends to include a belief in the supremacy of one group over another, national, ethnic, especially social strata or monetarily; a contempt for democracy, an insistence on obedience to a powerful leader, and a strong demagogic approach.

Game On!

Now that we've got those pesky primaries out of the way and we know who's facing who, we can get down to the business of choosing who's going to represent us in all of the various levels of government. Of course there were a couple of surprises like Commissioner Theresa (my son really didn't get an F did he?) Cordova falling to Art De La Cruz (unofficial results here), but by and large there weren't any huge surprises around the Albuquerque area.

So... it's game on for the general election! To kick things off we're going to start with an Eye Poll of the 1st Congressional District. Who do you think will best represent the people of Eyeland, a law and order sheriff or a far left former Albuquerque city councilor? That's this week's Eye Poll - the first of the general election season. Don't forget to vote!

As much as it will hurt to vote for a democrat, I would rather that than Darren White.

I have a question for Darren.

His record on votes of confidence so far is; overwhelming defeat 100% of the time.

Will he hold another vote of confidence, a subordinate evaluation of his leadership, to see if he has learned anything since the rank and file ran his ass out of the NM state police?

If he answers no, it means he knows that another vote of confidence will show his rank and file think he's a showboat and a dick.

If he answers yes, a subordinate evaluation will be done, and it will be documented that his rank and file still think he is a showboat and a dick.

My bet is that he has neither the courage, nor the character, to even answer the question.

Any takers?

In my opinion a vote for Darren White is essentially a vote for war with Iran.

Eye you are doing it again? Pandering to one side or the other? "A law and order Sheriff" or a "Far left former Albuquerque city councilor"...? If this site is to be taken seriously you should just present the facts and leave your personell assumptions out of it, especially when asking others to weight in. Here is my opinion of "Your Lil' Bush boy toy" Darren White! He is a(n) Ego Maniac who has bounced around jobs more times than I've changed my socks, He was NOT the only person who went to New Orleans, but he is the only one who put his mug on Public Access Ch. 27 more times than Leave it To Beaver Reruns, he has a insolent attitude towards those who do not side with his agenda or opinion. Just ask the family of the dead kid who was killed out at the stop sign at MDC. I will vote for Martin Heinrich. I myself am done with this "VERSION" of the Rebuplican parties idea of a candidate.

Re; Dan ..... Because of people like Darren White, I'm reminded of the unpopular war inside the U.S.A. (not just the rest of the world). Every time I hear, read about, or see police abuse, shootings, or unconstitutional check points, I think about the command of our law enforcement agencies and how their leadership is not what it should be. I'm voting for the stronger leader of the two .... Martin Heinrich

I agree with the majority of the people posting here....Darren is in it for himself and nobody else. I have known him for 25 years & these are his true spots & he can't change them. Darren would be a disaster for NM in Washington....I will hold my nose & vote for Martin.

Hmmm, someone needs to inform the rest of the deputies what you have said because the majority like and support what Darren has done for BCSO.
Also FYI, Darren left DPS, the State Police did not run him off, he was the Cabinet Secretary of DPS and could no longer support then (R)Govenor Gary Johnson's agenda on legalizing marijuanna. If you ever heard White's explain his position and disappointment with Johnson to the drug Enforcement Advisory Council (DEAC) durring that time period you would know why he could no longer stay. He turned his back on a Govenor who was also a Republican because he had convictions and supported the national law enforcement agenda against drug legalization.
Also, what ever you call it or say about him at least he get's out and supports he men and women, and is not constantly trying to throw them under the bus....
Thumbs up for Darren White and thumbs down to all you haters out there that are nothing more than oxygen sucks and hot air blowers. Perhaps you are the greatest contributors to the green house effect and adding to global warming. Stop with the hot air your sucking everyone elses energy, Go Green for a while, be positive and you will feel better and actually add something to mankind and indirectly give back to the environment, haha........

Constitution for the United States of America

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America …

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized …

… Darren White does not support this document, and it is the reason I do not support him.

NOT Enamoured said...

What does the comment "someone needs to inform the rest of the deputies what you have said" imply? Are we in trouble? Are you gonna "DO" something to "US"? That comment is the reason why people will turn away from "Your" Lil' Bush Boy Toy. Darren supports himself. Since you know so much I have a few questions for you Mr. Informed. YES or NO was there a Vote of No confidence against Darren White as Cabinet Secretary if DPS? YES or NO. Did Darren make a(n) insolent remark in regards to a Judges ruling against the county about the Child and the MDC stop sign fiasco? YES or NO. Did Darren White come back from New Orleans (Katrina) and promote himself and what he saw and did? Here is a little info for you now. AFD sent more personel to New Orleans/New York/The Pentagon and not once did I hear or see any press and or pub about any of the Men and Women of either AFD/BCFD/BCSO like I saw Darren. Face it he is a publicity whore. Darren has never seen a camera he doesn't love. I need more than that in Washington. Thank you for your service Mr. Deputy!

Darren,

Talk is cheap.

Will you submit to another subordinate evaluation, or not?

If you are as popular as you say you are, the results that you claim you will get, would really impress voters, who now think that you are a showboat and a dick.

Also, I am troubled by statements you made before your disastrous vote of confidence by the NMSP, where you actually endorsed most of what Gary Johnson was saying about the decriminalization of certain drugs.

It was only after you needed a politically correct excuse to vacate, did you articulate your change of heart.

You are in the position of having to prove yourself; you have no rep to ride on.

Do you have the character and the courage to stand eyeball to eyeball with voters and answer every legitimate question that voters have?

Or will you stay in hiding?

The proof is in the pudding.

Stand up, or shut up.

a big fan of Darren White said...

Darren White quoted supporting Gary Johnson, before he was kicked out by his subordinates at the NMSP, and before he needed a politically correct excuse to bail.

"State Public Safety Secretary Darren White said the federal government spends about $17 billion annually to fight drugs, including about $6 million in New Mexico. "And we're probably only seizing 5 to 15 percent of all the drugs coming into the country," White said in an interview. "We're not going to arrest ourselves out of this drug problem. The governor is absolutely right. We should be looking at other options because our current policy is failing.""

Even if Darren White did quit over a genuine philosophical disagreement, it still sheds no light on the vote of no confidence;

what's the deal there?

I have known Mr White for many years and yes he is a showboat and a publicity hound. On the other hand I have met Mr Heinrich on several occassions, once I was in a police uniform running a neighborhood meeting and he was an absolute cock to me acting with distain as though I were the fricken janitor or something. Later I met him a couple years after I retired and, since I was wearing a suit and hanging out with folks who obviously could be contributors he was nice as can be. So, I will vote White because, although he can knock you over to get in front of a camera, that is part of the political game. Heinrich on the other hand was just a snide left wing jerk acting in the manner we always get from their kind. Regardless of your education or income or purity of heart, if you are in a uniform the LEFT will alway piss on you.

OK 12:39, I'll give you that.

So is there a Green running?

Anybody but
Darren White for congress.

If I recall correctly the vote of no confidence was mainly due to the management style which is easy to see why state Police would be upset by the inharent chain-of-command structure of the state police being under the DPS cabinet secretary and also under the chief of the state police. That type of administrative structure lends to an inharent struggle/battle with the troops due to having to have two loyalties (Cabinet Secretary or Chief). Look at the oldadminstrative structure found with Albuquerque, Mayor>Public Safety Director>Chief, look at all the issues that caused...
That is why the term expectancy for a Chief or Cabinet Secretary is usually 3-5 years due to being the political scape goats for those above them, shielding others from flawed political policies.
Shame on politicians playing politics with Public Safety and having a hand in the spine of those in unions, acting like political puppets at the expense of thier membership, causing in-fighting amongst the excellent men and women who serve proudly with unselfish valor.

He was the highest political figure from Albuquerque in New Orlenes. Of course the press will naturally be attracted to him, and frankly he does very well on camera and that is why he is very popular in Bernalillo County.

Please show me another politician that does not seize every moment with the press that they can reasonably take. Most others just aren't as good as DW.

PROUD UNION MEMBER said...

AAAAh to the last 2 posters? Is that a YES on a VOTE of NO CONFIDENCE, and he was the "HIGHEST POLITICAL FIGURE FROM ALBUQUERQUE in NEW ORLEANS"...? That is exactly why "HE" does not belong in Washington. That statement right there smacks those who were there right in the face as if there contributions and sacrifice was not worthy because they were not "THE DARREN WHITE FROM BERNALILLO COUNTY". F you Darren and the white horse you rode in on. Martin Heinrich I hope you kick the crap outta "Bushs Lil' Boy Toy".

sees through the smoke said...

then he should have no problem with conducting an impartial subordinate evaluation to present to voters; to clear up the confusion; and

he should have no problem standing up at a town hall meeting and answering any legitimate question that is asked of him.

yet he will do neither.

... hmmm.

Anonymous said...

Ask him why he has promoted unworthy liars like Marcantel and Thomas. THe two biggest kiss asses in the department..oh maybe that's why.It was a known fact Marcanshit worked on his degree the whole time he was "in charge" of the Triple homicide in the east mountains. I'll wager they'll lose that case due to his incompetence and constant ego fighting with Matt Thomas as to who is the best cop..neither one could investigate their way out of a wet paper bag. Darren is all about Darren and is never around to run his own department. God help you if he gets elected.

As I see it and hear it:::

I often have wondered how and why Greg has gotten where he has in the Department. Rumor or Fact has it; you can decide, he (Greg)while also married had an affair with a married woman (Tamera B.). Tamera B. is a non-sworn law enforcement person paid big federal dollars to oversee the New Mexico Gang, Terrorism Task Force (I know, go figure). I heard (I did not witness) froma reliable source that Tamera's husband found the two of them at his mother-in-laws one evening while the mother-in-law was gone. Greg's BCSO issued unit was out front in the street. Sounds like conduct unbecoming to me but heck I guess it's ok if your Greg M. Greg sits on the Executive Board of the Task Force which oversees Tamera (his girlfriend)along with other task force operations and funding recommendations. Now I may not be a rocket scientist but I can even see the huge conflict of interest here which BCSO has allowed to go on for a long long time. I hear that Greg and Tamera are going to get married, how sweet, so now we will have a married couple running the task force. Why has this not been looked into? Tamera needs to be let go and Greg needs to be investigated for his conduct and lack of proffessional forethought as it pertains to conflicts of interest. Gee I wonder how much funding BCSO has recieved from the task force for gang operations/sweeps??!! How many raises and special bebefits has Tamarea recieved while greg has been part of the task force for the last 4 years which now directly and indirectly benefits not only her but him as well?? For those who saw them at the last gang conference, did'nt you think they were sooo cute together? By the way the task force funds are Federal (DCSI-Byrnes Memorial Funding)and State legislated funds so I would think the Feds and Attorney Generals Office may or would be interested!

Is Ken (I intentionally overcharge) Zangara raising money for Darren (I've Never seen a camera I didn't love) White?

Anonymous said...

Sounds just like Marcanshit. He always lands the cush jobs and "appointments". He came from Bernalillo CITY and was a GALLAGHER LATERAL so that should say it all. He is an immoral, corrupt POS along with his on again off again ass hole buddy, Matt Thomas..I heard Thomas was doing the secretary at the task force. If that's true, at least they are keeping her between co-workers. Marcantel and Thomas have both lied under oath and have no business wearing a badge. The internal joke is that Thomas's nickname is "Meth". The Feds aren't going to touch them because they owe them for covering their asses in that pedophile case several years ago. They should be investigated but I don't know by who....

How many marriages is this for the great Number one cop Marcantel? He is ridiculous and a laughing stock of the whole department. ALL he had going for him is the bull shit he spews to people that don't know any better. Mainly the victims family in these homicides of Bernalillo County. By the way Marcantel get rid of those Brokeback Mountain sideburns..

To all the S.O. guys on posting this stuff, why bother? It will get swept under the rug just like everything else! Darren does not do anything unless the Media finds out about it! Like R. Large, when he got busted with porn on his computer the media found out and Darren threw him under the bus and forced him to retire, but R. Chavez had porn on his computer and he got promoted, oh I forgot, he spent 3 months on county time (payroll)building a house for the Captain. Guess that would explain how he got to go to that FBI school while on probation as a Sgt. and not to mention assigned to be one of the ERT Sgt.s while on probation.......I feel sorry for all you Sgt.s who have to compete with Ray for a spot, maybe you should learn to build houses too!

Anonymous said...

last post..you are sooooooo right.
How about Marcanshit taking Gonzales spot for the FBI academy? He took a captain's car up there and was positive he was going to be promoted when he got back but alas, the great Marcantel is still a Lieuenant...in the real world he should have never been allowed to lateral in the first place. He and Thomas are White's ass kissing buddies..they will never be held accountable. Bet White is glad he's outta there before the Triple trial comes around!!

The only reason the SO even WENT to Katrina was because MARCANSHIT spearheaded that whole trip because he had family down..so free trip courtesy of the county.
