McCain’s entire career has been marked by partnering with the most liberal Democrats — along with Jon Kyl and now Jeff Flake — to promote amnesty for illegals. The most recent charade was the infamous Gang of Eight, orchestrated by the AZ duo and their leftist Senate cohorts Chuck Schumer, Dick Durbin, Robert Menendez and Michael Bennet. They were joined by by Republicrats Lindsey Grahamnesty and double talker Marco Rubio.
A recent press release from John McCain’s senate office contains a joint self-congratulatory I’ll-slap-your-back-if-you-slap-mine routine with AZ CD 2 Rep. Martha McSally.
Since the issue is about the duo’s Border Security Technology Accountability Act, conservative’s antenna should be rising, since we know McCain has long been in the forefront of amnesty proposals — not implementing security to stop illegal invaders. The deceptive press release is up on his website, which we have no reason to link to. The bill can be read here.
John McCain is working to deflect his now admitted involvement in the effort to dismantle President-elect Donald Trump before he is even inaugurated, by delivering vile and unverified allegations with shady origins against Trump to FBI director James Comey. McCain still hasn’t gotten over his colossal loss to Barack Obama and his visceral hatred/jealousy of Donald Trump capturing the American imagination has consumed him. McCain withdrew his iffy endorsement of the Republican nominee. Jeff Flake appeared wherever a camera would train on him, to declare he wasn’t voting for Trump. That means both of Arizona’s marginal senators, either by acts of omission or commission, voted for Hillary Clinton.
Returning to the Border Security Technology Accountability Act, we’ve been down this path before. McSally introduced a bill with the same title July 27, 2015. And technology has been tried and failed since the days of the first Homeland Security chief, Judge Michael Chertoff’s efforts to get a 28-mile “virtual fence” that pledged to use radar and surveillance cameras. That was during the George W. Bush administration, which also gave a wink and a nod to illegals crossing into the U.S.
It was a costly farce then and it will be a costly farce now. Donald Trump is committed to a border wall and so are most Americans who were moved to support him on that compelling issue. SRAZ wrote,” Virtual fence is a virtual flop,” in April 2008. Earlier, in Feb. 2008, we covered, “Virtual fence “looks good” to Homeland Insecurity Chief Chertoff,” regarding the technical malfunctions, glitches and postponements carrying $ multimillion price tags. This post “…and we’ve got a bridge to sell you,” which includes a list of just some of the terror sponsoring nations breaching our border plainly illustrates nothing has changed.
Believe these practiced liars at your own peril.
