Arizona Border Agent killing turns into typical dirty state politics
Although the FBI says that the killing of Border Patrol Agt. Nicholas Ivie was a result of friendly fire, the mouth that never shuts up, Gov. Jan Brewer, stands by her ludicrous claim that the death is the result of the fed’s failure to secure the border.One media report even stated no smuggler or anyone else other than Border Patrol Agents were present at the incident.It appears to be an investigation gone terribly wrong, but not so says Brewer and John McCain.
Big mouth McCain
McCain is Arizona’s senior Senator who has been in Congress far past his ability to serve effectively.He has made comments on the border before that were proved false, and when running against J.D. Hayworth in 2010, the latter, another Arizona conservative lunatic like Russell Pearce that also lost, McCain quickly changed his positive stance on immigration reform to suit state conservatives.Re. Agt. Ivie’s death, McCain’s statement was:
"When our secretary of Homeland Security keeps telling the Congress that the border is secure and that we don't need to spend any more money to secure it that this obviously contradicts assertions by her and the president,"
Agent Nicholas Ivie
Brewer offered condolences to the Ivie family, as many Arizona politicians did, but then added her unwarranted criticism of the Obama administration’s lack of securing the border, which both other conservatives and the media termed an overreaction.She was politely told to “Leave politics out of this.”Another large facial cavity from Iowa, Sen. Charles Grassley, ranted on about the killing and the failures of the Obama administration to secure the border.
Of course, most of the country knows that border violence is down as well as crossings from Mexico into the U.S.That is except the inept politicians heretofore mentioned, which is just more of the GOP conservative attack brigade started by the master of hate politics, Karl Rove.This whole issue seems to center around the Fast and Furious episodes, which are bad and a product of both the Obama administration and those of George W. Bush.
Even dirty hands McCain criticizes Brewer:
Jan Brewer’s actual comment following Agent Ivie’s death was, "I am angry. We have been dealing with this issue of getting our borders secure now for many years and still we are told that it's more secure than ever. Unfortunately, today Arizona is seeing and hearing that results of our border not being secure."Another classic instance of foot in mouth disease by America’s worst Governor.That’s right, check out my blog of September 16, 2011.
Brewer at the border fence
A second Border Agent was wounded when Ivie was killed.Latest word is that Ivie was separated from the others when he heard a noise and fired, prompting the other agents to fire back.That is believed to have caused Ivie’s death.Now that is hard enough for any family to take, especially after being told by Arizona’s official blowhard, Jan Brewer, that it was caused by illegal aliens that were in the country because President Obama hadn’t secured the border.Pathetic.
So far investigators have found no evidence of an illegal border crossing or any illegal smugglers located in the area at the time of the confrontation, according to the ArizonaRepublic.Brewer closed another statement with, “It has been 558 days since the Obama administration declared the security of the U.S.-Mexico border is ‘better now than it has ever been.’ I’ll remember that statement today.”How long will it be before someone declares Jan Brewer a certified fruitcake?
