August 16, 2013: Jonathan DuHamel says: “Good catch. I didn’t see anything about this in the Arizona Daily Star, but the Star did report a $2 break in trash fees for people in Ajo.”
August 16, 2013: Colt Cassidy says: “The Flake, Mayor Jonny (Jonathan Rothschild) & the COT council dummies won’t rest until there’s nothing left of Tucson but rattlesnakes, tumbling tumbleweeds & dust devils. Get a clue, and leave Davis Monthan AFB and our freedoms alone! We happen to appreciate jet noise!”
Richard Carmona has yet to comment on Senator Jeff Flake’s ‘firing’ of 5,000 employees, many of which reside in Tucson, Arizona, involved with Davis Monthan AFB A-10 project. Are both these men in on the ‘game’ of dismantling jobs in Arizona? Would Carmona have done the same thing?
In one of the few free opportunities to hear from their senator, Jeff Flake, Tucsonans were told that the Air Force plans to phase out the A-10, which will result in an estimated loss of 5,000 jobs.
In one of the few opportunities to hear from the Senator without paying a cover charge, Flake confirmed for listeners of the James T. Harris radio show that one of their worst fears was true: the A-10 has been marked for elimination in the next 1 to 2 years.
Just recently, officials report a low flying A-10 near Ajo surprised a cartel convoy that was being confronted by a lone border agent. The curious A-10 made numerous low passes over the confrontation. The result, the cartel fled south. A border patrol source says there is no doubt the arrival of the A-10 saved the border agent’s life.
Many residents wondered why the Senator had not afforded an opportunity to defend the A-10 critical mission set by informing them before laying on the bad news… it is as if Flake himself fired them all.
Flake responded during the interview with James Harris that he doubted the Air Force “would make a decision that would harm the national security.” Flake then claimed that the F-35 would provide an alternative to the A-10, ignoring the fact that the F-35 would not provide an alternative source of jobs for Tucsonans who lost the F-35 last year to Luke Air Force base in Phoenix.
The Air Force will argue that the A-10 is expendable
Gabrielle Giffords was tied into the military force in Southern Arizona. A staunch advocate of the 2nd amendment right to bear arms is now actively setting the presedence to disarm Americans. Would she have defended our rights to keep our jobs, or allow Senators like Jeff Flake to give it all away?
The Air Force will argue that the A-10 is a single purpose aircraft and as a result, is expendable. The decision makers in D.C., like Flake, will likely have only the information provided by the powers that be upon which to make an “informed” decision. What they will not be told is that the A-10 is critical to combat operations and the KC-10 crucial to mobility, say experts.
Supporters of Davis Monthan and the A-10 mission say it is not too late to save the life-saving attack plane. They are urging local officials and the public to call upon Flake to come to the defense of national defense.
amnesty rights to non citizens seems to be Jeff Flake’s national defense plan by ‘letting them all in..” will foreigners defend our nation, or will we support them with services single white males here do not qualify for?
Flake is a member of the dangerous “GANG OF EIGHT”
Unfortunately, Flake being a member of the GANG OF EIGHT is using the summer recess to sell immigration reform as his national defense plan. The irony is not lost on the residents of the area, who have seen the illegal entrants change over the years from poor people looking for opportunity to hard core drug runners taking advantage of a country who lost all interest in national defense.
What does this mean? It means that granting amnesty to foreigners who will bleed our economy dry by stripping our tax money to support them is simply more important than preserving American jobs. What lunacy.
While Flake is trying to sell the border residents on the idea of drones overhead as part of their future, he is trying to convince them that the loss of the A-10, a source of their livelihood, is a thing of their past.
