Sylvia Allen Responds to Raul Grijalva's Dislike of "Arizona Guard" With Cartel Accusation

State Senator Sylvia Allen has an opinion.
Democratic Congressman Raul Grijalva released a statement about State Senator Sylvia Allen's bill to create a volunteer militia to guard the border, and as you can imagine, he's not too hip to the idea.

"This legislation is not just silly and irresponsible, it's a public safety threat," Grijalva says. "To arm individuals, provide paper-thin weapons training and deliberately place them in danger disrespects the taxpayers of our great state and cheapens the professionalism of our border security agents."

Equally unsurprising, Allen had a cow over Grijalva's criticisms.

Among her claims was that Grijalva is apparently proposing legislation intended to "make it easier for the cartels."

"Since when has Mr. Grijalva EVER been concerned about protecting our borders?" Allen says. "He has fought every effort ever made by this Legislature to stem the flow. In fact, he is proposing to add more wilderness areas along the border to make it even easier for the cartels, since local law enforcement officials cannot enforce the law on federal land."

We're not sure what Allen believes "it" is that Grijalva's trying to make easier for cartels, but she sure didn't return our call for comment.

If you haven't read our colleague Stephen Lemons' piece on the "Arizona Guard," now's a good time for that one.

Without further ado, here's the rest of Allen's rant against Grijalva:

Calling the training of the members of the Special Missions Unit "paper-thin" is an insult to every member of the U.S. Armed Forces. The Special Missions Unit will consist mostly of highly trained former law enforcement and military personnel. They will come into the Special Missions Unit highly trained, and the Unit will add further training on top of that.  Congressman Grijalva and the Federal Government would prefer to send out Border Patrol officers without guns and call that 'protection'. I don't call that border security - I call it insanity. "Open borders" Grijalva can spin his opposition any way he likes, but Arizonans know that we have a huge problem here with drug cartels, allied with terrorists, smuggling drugs and terrorizing the inhabitants of this state."

I dunno but it seems like Grijalva is simply trying to make things better for his supporters within the Los Zetas organization.  So how much they contribute to his re-election campaign?

"Since when has Raul Grijalva ever been concerned about protecting our borders?", asks Ms Allen. UHHH, .......since NEVER.  Instead the economic "terrorist" of small businesses everywhere in Arizona, Raul, "lets nuke Arizona businesses with a boycott, Grijalva, has so often completely exposed himself as the typical Mexican Nationalist, working as a fiffth columnist for Mexico in the U.S.Congress. They're in California to. Everyone knows who they are by now, because it's not as if they try to even hide it.

i sure hope the anarchists and other red radicals don't join this to get a little military training and maybe a chance to steal weapons.

And I say this as a white guy...Is there a white trash factory somewhere in the state I'm not aware of where they crank out mentally defective pieces of garbage like Senator Sylvia Allen. I doubt this woman is capable of picking her own nose.

The only consolation folks is the GOP lives in a mythical majority dream, 35% in Arizona and 22% nationally register as republicans, now if the remaining 78% whom they always try to lay claim to as their conservatives, independents, swing voters were like their claim to owning god/jesus were true they would register republican instead of democrat, independent or minority parties and last time I read the bible I did not find one passage identifying Jesus as a conservative republican nor his father God! I guess the GOP forgets a real majority is minimum 50.1% and draft was done away with in 1973!:-)

I guess this state representative can ask JT Ready, former marine {discharged with a bad conduct discharge} to take a leadership position, no doubt his cook out man hug buddy Russell Pearce could recommend him, since he baptized him into the Mormon cult, now would that not be par for the course! I do so love how Arizona has become the magnet for the ne'r to do wells of America dreaming of their fanasy race war, coming to the desert playing out their rambo wanna-be fantasies & delusions of grandeur that they are leading some massive war on them horrible poverty stricken hispanic invaders with their rags on their backs fleeing poverty in a country their only crime is of being born in! Its always amusing to see these heros of the right wing exposed in the media but once one looks past their rhetoric and self professed patriotism one see's they are noting but ne'r to do wells who one can hope will run out of unemployment/welfare checks and go home one day and cause mischief in their home states!

The thing which will make or break this issue is money, the state is so broke our governor sold government buildings and now cannot get her own party to back her in buying them back! I am reminded of a couple in financial trouble and they pawn their wedding rings to a pawn broker and then argue on letting them go or trying to get them back! Yes Arizona can afford this crazy idea if they borrow some more money from paul to pay peter! Then imagine all the law suits from the folks these inept rambo wanna-be's arrest without proper cause, mistreat and abuse, if one needs a example look at old Arpaio and his posse of rambo wanna-be's success in costing Maricopa county $44 million in lost civil judgments plus thousands of pending multi-milliion dollar law suits undecided as yet, now multiply that to a state wide fiasco!

These rambo wanna-be's attract folks alright such as fake marine/minute man/aryan nations member Bush and his female commander Forde both of Washington State turns out Forde was a alleged prostitute, criminal robbed folks not only hispanics but some of her own relatives, Bush turned out to be a psychopath serial killer who still has victim's in Washington State where he killed a sleeping homeless hispanic man, and a fellow aryan naitons member whom he also allegedly murdered, one might speculate how many he has murdered but his most notorious one is the poor defenseless 9 year old hispanic girl south of Tucson, her father ironically the mother turned out to be a real mamma grizzly bear and shot/wounded him in defense of her murdered family, he fled in terror like a yellow dog he was, one might ask why did he flee to Mohave County, to seek comfort and aide for his wounds where he was captured? If one reads some of the comments made on opinion section of news paper the Kingman Miner one can see why obviously a large community of xenophobes live in Mohave county and some must be members of this minute men radical group who think murder is justified and patriotic! Unfortunately this illegal alien issue brings out the looney tunes in american society, murderer's, criminals, xenophobic zealots with race war fantasies, good luck on sorting them out of the true border patriots!

Sylvia Allen is a liar.  $1 million dollars will provide us with a "mostly highly trained" (and then some, so she says) militia, excuse me, "special missions unit?"  

"Mostly" isn't good enough.

I'd like for Ms. Allen to present us, the voting public, with her business plan for this group.  Who are going to be members, what will be her minimum requirements to become a member, what kind of vetting/background checks will she put these people through before they can be accepted, her funding, her expenditures all broken out, specific objectives, goals ... lay it all out for us to see exactly what we're paying for ... and what we're really getting for a million dollars.

Then I'd like for Ms. Allen to explain for us taxpayers what plans she has to pay for any lawsuits the state may face resulting from her "special missions unit's" actions.

Sylvia Allen is a nutcase tool and needs to be replaced by a sane representative next election.

Actually, according to the Feathered Bastard's recent report. It was that crackpot Allen, who "insulted" the U.S. Armed Forces. She simply ignored everything that was said before her very blind eyes, by a U.S. Military General. She "insulted" him by not paying heed to his warnings and advice. I think Allen needs a good bitch slap across the face.

Oh, yeah? You read the BIBLE in a very selective way then. Jesus preached that the laws  of Rome should be followed. He could have called down the angels says the bible to smite them all. He made a whip of cords and applied it to the backs of the money changers who were selling animals in the temple. Does that sound like a liberal to YOU? Chaos and lawlessness in NOT THE WAY OF GOD.

Are you nuts? Everyone has seen the pictures of those "stricken" people with rags on their backs. Are you full of bullshit. Are you shilling for Chad Snow or communist community organizer Parraz. There are thousands of pictures of those people you are talking about, coming across the border in NIKE shoes, blue jeans that don't look at all bad, thick sweaters and most seem quite well-nourished, not to say FAT. Only the most uniformed, clueless, and stupid people would possible believe your made up stories about what is happening with the immigration issue. Guess what IT ISN'T AMERICANS PROBLEM, IT'S MEXICO'S AND OTHER CORRUPT THIRD WORLD SLIMEHOLES.

It's so broke because millions of foreign nationals withou ANY permission to be here, have usurped that states coffers. Simple as that.

Your'e lying. No one in the minuteman groups feel murder is justified. Just more loony talk, so typical of the open borders Arizona malcontents. Your thinking is inverted. It's the Mexican drug Cartels for whom murders are deemed justifiable--tens of thousands of them. Come out of the twilight zone.

In Arizona about 2 dozen at best, led by JT Ready the man love buddy to Russell Pearce who loves to be photographed giving him man hugs at their joint cook out events! Funny thing is JT Ready is now a Mormon cultist, can ad that one to his resume of neo-nazi commander in Arizona, a few of his comrades are in federal prison got caught with pipe bombs traveling to unknown destinations along Arizona highways! The ne'r to do wells from all over the USA come here but one can hope their unemployment/welfare checks run out soon and they go home to whence they came from!:-)

Same thing happened in California to some high ranking General when he addressed the utterly corrupt Senator Barbara Boxer as Maam.... Maam has been a polite term towards women for abouot two hundred years now, but the corrupt Senator Boxer,(leftist democrat whos main disstinction has been to lead California into bankruptcy the 20 years she has been in office) rudely interrupted the General and told him to call her Senator... ohhhh, the feelings of self-importance of these political do nothing hacks is sickening.

Yup. And it was not just any military official. It was a high ranking general, she dissed and dismissed. I don't think any true American should take Allen seriously. To do so, would be a catastrophe.
