Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Critic Trump’s Decision to Pardon

When victims of Joe Arpaio discovered that he was convicted of criminal contempt of court, they didn’t expect him to serve a single day in jail. The 85 year old former sheriff was expected to weasel his way out of jail time in some way or another, but no one expected him to be pardoned by the President of the United States. Donald Trump has done just that and some say the reason is obvious: to gain supporters.

Michael Lacey echoed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s remarks about Trump by calling him a moron for going through with the pardon.

Despite Arpaio’s numerous constitutional violations and abundant criminal activity, he still has a lot of fans in Arizona. By pardoning Arpaio, Michael Lacey says Trump is attempting to reach Arpaio’s fan-base.

It is no secret that Arpaio and Trump share supporters, so by pardoning Arpaio, Trump aims to satisfy the desires of Republican voters. Since the pardoning, Joe Arpaio has said that he plans to run for Congress.

Joe Larkin and Michael Lacey, two of Arpaio’s victims are doing everything in their power to stop Arpaio from ever being elected to public office again. After they were awarded nearly 4 million dollars from a lawsuit stemming from an unlawful arrest made under orders from Arpaio, the two men have created a brand new publication: Front Page Confidential.

When you visit the web page for their new paper, you will be hard-pressed to find a day when Joe Arpaio isn’t mentioned on the front page. If Arpaio does make a bid for a Senate Seat in 2018, no doubt, Lacey and Larkin will be utilizing their newspaper to prevent him from winning.

Front Page Confidential has been in operation since August 2017 and its content is primarily composed of news stories on civil rights issues. Larkin and Lacey have stated that they intend to use the newly found paper to inform their audience on issues relating to the first amendment and other prominent issues we are currently facing as a nation. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/06/23/jim-larkin-michael-lacey-make-the-list-of-civil-rights-protectors/ and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/

Who are Larkin and Lacey?

The two journalist met in college at Arizona State University and decided to drop out together once their college campus newspaper took off. They converted their school paper into a real locally circulated publication and have no regrets in not finishing school.

The two worked hard and have been very successful in the newspaper publishing industry. In 2013 they sold their original publication, The Phoenix New Times, and along with their settlement in the unlawful arrest controversy, they have started Front Page Confidential and The Frontera Fund.

By using both of these organizations, Larkin and Lacey have pledged to fight oppressive actions like those initiated by former sheriff Joe Arpaio. In addition to their efforts in the newspaper publishing industry, Larkin and Lacey plan to fight for migrant-rights and inform immigrants on policy with The Frontera Fund.

Who is Michael Lacey?

Imagine a world where there were no scientific calculations, or where we applied no science. Chaos would reign supreme. Mathematics as science provides solutions for daily living.

However, we cannot apply math to our daily living without the teacher, the mathematician, and the scientists who keep analyzing how we should apply concepts.

Michael Lacey was born Michael Thoreau Lacey in 1959. Michael worked his way up the education ladder to acquire his first degree from the University of Texas, Austin.

Michael then advanced his studies and graduated with a Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 1987. His thesis was on probability in Banach spaces. They are logarithmic equations in the functional analysis field that deal with complete norm vector spaces. His thesis also solved a problem related to the Law of Iterated Logarithm.

Michael Lacey is an experienced mathematician who has dedicated most of his life in contributing towards knowledge in his field. He has worked at Louisiana State University, University of North Carolina, and Indiana University. He has been working at the Georgia Institute of Technology from 1996 where he is a professor and the associate chair of the faculty.

During his time at UNC, Michael and his mentor gave their proof of concept to the Central Limit Theorem. This theorem simply suggests that when conducting a study, the average results from the data will be closer to the average results from the whole study if the sample size is increased.

During his successful career, Michael has received recognition and awards. The most notable being the Salem Prize. This he received together with a colleague for studying and completing the Hilbert Transform Equation, which was incomplete. Read more: Michael Lacey |Math Alliance and Michael Lacey | Wikipedia

He is an honored member of the Fulbright and Simons fellowships. He used the benefits acquired from these scholarships to support his further studies in the field.

You cannot mention his name without thinking of the Guggenheim Fellowship Award, which he received in 2004. The icing on the cake is the National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellowship. He became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society in 2012.

Michael is a lead researcher in the field with hundreds of published research articles to his name. Lacey is also the author of the book ‘On a Conjecture of E.M. Stein on the Hilbert Transform on Vector Fields.’ To date, he continues to serve diligently at the Georgia Institute as a math professor.

Securus Technologies Developers of the Only Approved and Accepted Contraband Interdiction Technology Available

Securus Technologies has been trying to bring innovation in the corrections space from the very beginning and is known for its unique set of products and services. The fact that the company invests millions into research and development showcases the commitment of the Securus Technologies to modernize the otherwise technologically dormant corrections space. Recently, the company’s press release announced that Securus Technologies has invested $600 million in research and development as well as to acquire patents for its technological developments. As of now, Securus Technologies already holds around seventy patents and plans to acquire much more in the time to come to consolidate its position as the industry leader.


Securus Technologies has recently come to the highlight again as it announced the development of the wireless containment system. It is a system that would help in keeping the contraband phones away from the correctional facilities. With the help of the wireless containment system, the contraband phones would get connected to a secured network without the inmates knowing about it. Thus, the law enforcement agencies and the correctional facilities would know about every illegal call being made out of the prison, and the calls coming to the jail from outside. It helps in tracking the contacts of the prisoners outside the prisoners, and ensure that they are not able to make illegal communication possible.


The CEO of Securus Technologies, Rick Smith, announced in a press brief that the company has invested $40 million in developing wireless containment system, and would continue to invest in updating the system. The use of contraband phones in the correctional facility can be dangerous to the community as well as the law enforcement officers. Many officers have lost their lives due to an assault that may not have happened if the contraband phones weren’t there. Securus Technologies has been able to develop this unique wireless containment system with the help of experts, one of which is Robert Johnson. Robert Johnson is one of the consultants at Securus Technologies who contributed to building the wireless containment system.


Robert Johnson helped confiscate hundreds and thousands of contraband phones while working as the corrections officers. He shared his knowledge and experience with the developers at Securus Technologies to make wireless containment system as iron-clad as possible. Robert Johnson believes that with the help of this contraband interdiction technology, it would be much easier to keep control of illegal communications happening in the correctional facilities. In a period from July 2016 to July 2017, the wireless containment system by Securus Technologies has already managed to stop and filter about 1.7 million illegal communications. The company plans to upgrade the technology with time to ensure that it is able to keep up with time and stay efficient.



Democrat Conor Lamb’s First Endorsement Comes from End Citizens United

     The Democrat candidate Conor Lamb in Pennsylvania’s 18th state representative race has gained the attention of former Vice President Joe Biden with his campaign and his pledge to not accept corporate donations. The former veep has stepped forward to speak positively about Conor Lamb and has said he will help with his campaign. The former vice president has stated that this seat should be a win for Democrats. He believes that Conor Lamb has a good shot at winning the election. The president and other private donor organizations have been trying to push back by endorsing the Republican candidate Rick Saccone.

The opening for the 18th state representative seat in Pennsylvania came about after the last Republican representative had to step out of office after having an extra marital affair and pushing his mistress to get an abortion, even though he has an anti-abortion stance. The last election that the former representative ran in there wasn’t even a democrat candidate who went against him due to the fact that the area is typically more Republican and conservative.

Conor Lamb is aware that the congressional district leans more conservative but he also is aware that there are plenty of moderate voters in the district as well. He’s focusing his campaign on a variety of issues that people in the district are concerned about to appeal to the variety of hooters to live in the area. Some of the issues he hopes to address are the hair when crisis, job creation, affordable healthcare, protecting Medicare and Social Security, reforming the student loan system, energy development, and supporting unions. His campaign has gained the attention and endorsement from the grassroots organization End Citizens United. They have raised $100,000 for Lamb’s campaign in grassroots donations. Lamb has pledged to not take any corporate PAC donations for his campaign. This is a stark contrast to Republican candidate Rick Saccone who has been taking private donations from big donors to fund hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of campaign advertising. The ECU president Tiffany Muller stated that by taking the no corporate pack pledge Conor Lamb is cementing that his campaign is for the people and not for corporations.

To learn more about Conor Lamb’s campaign, you can visit his official website at www.conorlamb.com. For more information about ECU, you can visit their official website at www.endcitizensunited.org. The special election for Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district is going to be held on March 13th.

NEW Ad in #PA18: Rick Saccone is a typical politician who spent over $430,000 in taxpayer dollars on himself.Conor Lamb fights for PA families and won't accept a dime from corporate PACs.

Frontera Fund Fights for DACA

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, better known as DACA, is one of the programs established by the previous administration that is now targeted by the GOP party. People who partake in the program are called Dreamers, and most of them are individuals that were brought to the United States at a young age. Their main issue is the lack of proper paperwork that makes it impossible to work legally. After DACA was put in place, however, these people got a chance to obtain a social security number and start working without fearing deportation.

Recently, the GOP leader Ken Paxton from Texas has decided to address this program under the Trump Administration. His means of doing so include a letter that was also signed by a few more attorneys general, which asks the administration to put an end to DACA as soon as possible. As the urgency of the issues gets elevated, e meeting between Hispanic Caucus and John Kelly was held. This is where issues and implications of the termination of DACA were discussed.

For example, there are over 800,000 people who have taken advantage of DACA to put themselves through schools and pay in-state tuition. These are the people that also work and contribute to the United States via taxes they pay. Eliminating DACA would place them all under the danger of not getting a chance to work again when their permits expire after a two-year period. Of course, people like Ken Paxton do not wish to see these permits renewed or additional ones issued.

After 5 years, DACA has proven to be one of the main legacies of the Obama Administration that addressed the issue of deporting people who came to the U.S. as children. It served as a compromise between giving these individuals a full citizenship or sending them back.

As the program faces new threats, people turn to individuals such as Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. These two leaders are on the front of the so-called Frontera Fund where they fight for the rights of minorities in the United States. The Frontera Fund started in 2013 when these two individuals received $3.7 million to compensate for the racially-motivated, unfair treatment by the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Now, the fund serves as an outlet to help people transition from DACA into another, legally accepted, status. They also aim to bring mainstream awareness to this issue and showcase how it will affect many families around the nation. Since the letter instigated by Paxton asks for a “phasing off” approach, there is time to discuss all the alternatives. The way that the process should work will not be a clear-cut termination of DACA and immediate deportation of anyone. It will, however, end many people’s ability to work, pay less for college tuition, and lead lives as they are used to.

The ultimate goal of the Frontera Fund is to fight for a permanent legislative act that will turn DACA into a law. This will prevent issues such as this one from arising in the future.

How Dick Devos is changing the Face of Their Town

Dick Devo’s is no doubt a well-known individual in his town. He has spent most of his time investing in various societal related contributions. These range from politics, education and social order.



For instance, his campaign against the development of a sports stadia outside the CBD led to the formation of a Grand Action committee. The committee consisted of a cluster of businesspeople, representatives from Michigan University School, the Devos convention Centre among other bodies. The action committee was to deliberate on the improvement of the Van Andel Arena, a project being pushed by the businessmen and women.



As heirs to their family throne, Dick and his wife Betsy have been trying to use the funds to change various institutions and their respective inefficient policies. Since they are also leading donors in different political platforms, they have used the different political influence and control to change some laws relating to labor and education.



Well, the politics of this couple extends beyond the Republican ideologies and politics, the party they are known to support vehemently. Their policies aimed at improving the livelihoods of children, women and the elderly in the society.



Since 1989, the family has used over $138.7 million in support of various courses in the nation. These courses spread over to education, arts, and culture, leadership programs, humanitarian services, policy reforms, private school scholarships among other factors.



In the year 2006, the couple donated a whopping $12.5 million towards the construction and setup of a children’s hospital. The hospital is currently named after the mother of Dick, Hellen Devo’s



According to Dick Devo’s the chairman of the hospital corporate bond, the hospital has improved the livelihood of parents in the area. Now, parents do not have to take a day off from work all drive all the way to Chicago to seek treatment.



In furtherance of his support for education, Dick launched the Dick Devo’s education initiatives. Some of these efforts include the launch of Aviation Charter School located next to the Grands International Airport.



His wife, Betsy Devo’s lauded the programs saying that the program has sought to remedy the difference to assess of education between the poor and the wealthy families. Now, the poor and the rich can comfortably enjoy their studies without having to worry about where to get the school fees.



But, one would wonder why the couple heavily invests in education. Betsy argues that the current education system in the country is no reflection of the American dream. In simpler terms, the current system of education as currently constituted is a recipe for civil rights problems. The couple believes that the only way out of this mess is by standardizing the training across the country and ensure it is affordable to all citizens. The desire to develop an education system that accommodates all people irrespective of their economic and social status saw the couple unsuccessfully try to enshrine private school vouchers in law from the public kitty.



The role of Betsy Devo’s in education is one of the reasons President Trump noted when appointing her as the United States Secretary of Education.
