Homeland Security Chief Napolitano to Resign
Fox News ^ | 7/12/13 | FoxNews.com

Posted on 07/12/2013 12:21:06 PM PDT by EagleUSA

Janet Napolitano is resigning as head of the Homeland Security Department and seeking a post as president of the University of California, the long-time Obama confidant announced Friday.

Officials told Fox News that Napolitano does not plan to leave her post until September. But she announced the move on Friday after it began to break in the media, revealing that she has been nominated to lead the California university system.

"For more than four years I have had the privilege of serving President Obama and his Administration as the Secretary of Homeland Security," she said in a statement. "The opportunity to work with the dedicated men and women of the Department of Homeland Security, who serve on the frontlines of our nation's efforts to protect our communities and families from harm, has been the highlight of my professional career. We have worked together to minimize threats of all kinds to the American public."

Napolitano has ridden out a rocky tenure, having endured a string of lawsuits and multiple controversies regarding the agencies that DHS oversees. Among the complaints, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents accused the department leadership in a lawsuit of failing to properly enforce immigration law. Their complaints center on the practice of using "prosecutorial discretion" -- allowing department lawyers to selectively determine which immigrants to pursue for deportation, and which to let go. Her aides claimed it was a matter of prioritizing resources, though some agents claimed it ran afoul of immigration law.

I hear she is to be named President of the “California University System”. Can California stoop much lower? She’ll be triple dipping for her eventual retirement,, collecting from AZ, the Feds, and from the soon-to-be-broke CA retirement fund.

After her job performance caused Webster to re-define “incompetent”, I have to wonder why any entity would want to hire this useless well of disaster. Oh wait—it’s California. Mystery solved.

"..................We have worked together to minimize threats of all kinds to the American public."

Yet you have failed to either minimize or eliminate the biggest threat to the American public, which resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Washington D.C.!!!

I read about a movie that was called the Human Centapeid, I think that was it, never saw it. It seems some guy hooked up people from A**hole to somebody's face, thus making a long line, sort of like this current administration...and I am thinking the Nappy was about 2nd or 3rd in line....IMHO

Well that should help the DHS to comply with sequester cuts with a huge reduction in “Die Hard Battery” purchases.

Just about nailed it.
Cabinet members make about $200,000. The current president of the University of California system makes $591,000.

I nominate Sheriff Arpaio. This would help to alleviate some of the immigration issues.

Sheriff Arpaio is not a strong supporter of President Obama, like Governor Brewer, so why would Obama pick him?

Many republicans believe that Arpaio would faithfully execute his duties to keep our borders secured and as such many of the opponents of immigration reform would be mollified.

Well, with Butch Napolitano off to Satan’s College of Perverts and Pagans, His Arrogance will have to scour the bowels of the Progressive beast for fittingly incompetent replacement.
