McCain: Mexicans behind Arizona fires (McCain says illegal aliens set the fires)
CNN / UPI ^ | 2011-06-19

PHOENIX, June 19 (UPI) -- Illegal immigrants from Mexico are responsible for starting some of the huge wildfires in Arizona, U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., alleges.

At a Phoenix news conference, the right-wing senator claimed illegal immigrants light fires in the wilderness for warmth, to send signals and to distract border agents, CNN said.

"There is substantial evidence that some of these fires have been caused by people who have crossed our border illegally," McCain said. "The answer to that part of the problem is to get a secure border."

However, he offered no evidence to substantiate his claim.

right-wing senator

Isn't that supposed to be "Maverick" senator?

I guess he's right wing when the press wants him to be right wing.

That's this week. When he's supporting 0bama's Libyan misadventure, he'll be the strong and principled voice of GOP moderation.

McCain...Right Wing...

We all have times we sit in front of the computer and come across something so patently absurd that we involuntarily bust up laughing and have a hard time stopping.

This is such a time.

From the article:

the right-wing senator

Is this a satire piece?

Senator McCain IS far right wing from the mainstream media’s point of view. Personally? I’d put him on the right wing, too. He’s a hair’s width right from dead center.

Well John. Just grant them amnesty and all is good. Right?

You stupid bastard.

Amnesty proponents don't believe in the Rule of Law, they don't believe in the US Constitution, and they should be thrown in jail.

I can’t recall ever reading a CNN/UPI piece where they call anyone a LEFT WING Senator. Weird. Must be some kind of “media” bias or something.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day. The people of AZ KNOW that the fires were set by illegal aliens—not only this year but last year. The MSM has not reported it, but honest reporters like Leo Banks have.

I believe it. I worked in a steel mill out in East Chicago back in the 50s, one summer. Youngstown Sheet & Tube. They had great Polish sausage, as they called it, that you could buy for lunch.

Thank you for that post. The actual story many times gets drowned out by the political noise. ;o)

Regardless of what you think of JM,I believe he is right in this case. 700,000 acres of trees needs to be added to Obamas stupidity account. Plus the firefighters cost, plus the massive carbon footprint.

This whole thing reeks.

I have also heard illegal aliens are starting some of these fires from pretty good sources. This article seems like pure propaganda.

Would it surprise anyone?

Is there anyone here that thinks illegal aliens are American's good friends?

This desecration of our flag above occurred on the main lawn directly in front of the Arizona Capital building on 7-31-2010....All caught on video.

I’ve heard these illegals and their Mexican pro-illegal alien supporters, spray painted, "Burn this racist city to the ground" and placed a toilet seat on Old Glory as they walked all over our flag....

Using arguments of the left (and McCain and Romney, who apparently believe in anthropogenic global warming) contributes to the widespread acceptance of a false premise. I agree with your statement up to the "plus the massive carbon footprint" part.

I see the pressholes are mad at John now. When they have a use for him again he’ll be a “maverick”.

Wouldn’t surprise me if he didn’t make more money too. I have read that computer software engineering companies, like IBM and others seek graduates from Poland for this specialty area. The Polish engineers are supposedly the best in the world.

On this one, he’s right. I just wish he had listened to us when we told him this 5 years ago...

I've heard that the main reason Polish software engineers are so go is the same reason Cuban auto mechanics are so good: necessity.

Just as the pre-Castro era cars were better than anything in the post Castro era and the Cubans had to innovate and make do with repaired and jerry-rigged parts, Poland was able to pick up older PC's for a song and learned to program with minimal memory.
