Nancy Pelosi is frozen in time in more ways than her overly nipped-and-tucked, botoxed face. She has now declared that she has the answer to securing our southern border — by implementing technology rather than constructing a physical barrier and utilizing trained border agents. She obviously has no commitment to curtailing the invasion, since leftists look at these lawbreakers as the future heft of the Democrat party.
We’ve all witnessed Nancy’s mental lapses, but this latest blunder should have at least caught the attention of her aides, who could have righted her listing memory.
This SRAZ post, “Virtual fence is a virtual flop,” was written nearly a dozen years ago, but couldn’t be more timely. As we wrote at the time, the entire high dollar project ended up being scrapped, due to the clumsy incompetence of the Bush administration’s Homeland Security Secretary, Michael Chertoff, the contractors and the failed system itself.
Chertoff, a former federal judge appointed by George W. Bush, was a Hillary Clinton supporter in 2016 and currently works at Covington the same law firm with a massive lobbying presence where former AZ Sen. Jon Kyl and Barack Obama’s onetime Attorney General, Eric Holder, each hang their hats.
The NY Times reported the Obama administration spent $1 billion before the Department Homeland Security canceled the ineffective ‘Virtual Fence.’ Then-homeland [In]security Secretary Janet Napolitano (previously Arizona’s calamitous governor), acknowledged her decision to end the five-year-old project, because it “does not meet current standards for viability and cost effectiveness.”
…And besides, it’s just taxpayer’s money. There’s more where that came from. And truth be told, Democrats have no desire to stem the tide of illegals.
