Gov. Perry asks for Border Help

Gov. Perry once again has made a request to Homeland Security and while Janet Napolitano once ran a border state, she doesn't seem too concerned. Perry has every reason to be concerned as violence pours over the border into Texas.

He has requested 1,000 fresh troops and more surveillance.

"How many Americans will have to die before our federal government takes serious action along the Texas-Mexico border?” Perry spokeswoman Allison Castle said this afternoon. "The administration has been reviewing the governor's request for 1,000 National Guard troops to support local law enforcement along the border for over a year. It’s time for the federal government to allocate the appropriate resources to the Texas-Mexico border.”

Is Debra Medina a Truther?

In a Glenn Beck radio show Medina was asked about the idea if the U.S. Government was involved in 911.

She quickly backed off by issuing a statement:

"There is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11," Medina said in the written statement. "I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way."

Both Perry and Hutchinson issued critical statements about Medina's response to Glenn Beck's question.
