Napolitano Leaving DHS Under Cloud of Suspicion
Townhall.com ^ | July 15, 2013 | Rachel Alexander

Posted on 07/15/2013 5:24:25 AM PDT by Kaslin

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suddenly announced last week that she was resigning her position at the embattled agency in order to take a $750,000-a-year job as president of the University of California system. This will more than triple her salary, which was $200,000 at DHS.

The timing of her resignation is highly unusual for a member of the president’s cabinet. Most cabinet members who leave after a president’s first term don’t wait an extra six months into the second term. Many believe she abruptly left DHS because of some sordid dealings that are about to be discovered. Her tenure at DHS has been characterized by back-to-back lawsuits and multiple controversies regarding the agencies DHS oversees, which include the TSA, ICE, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services and FEMA.

Napolitano was known in Arizona for her backroom deals and ruthless targeting of conservatives, a pattern she continued as DHS chief. In 2009, she issued a DHS report entitled, "Rightwing [sic] Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.” In it, conservatives who prefer local government over federal government, Christians who believe in the “end times,” and single-issue groups, such as groups that oppose abortion and illegal immigration, are singled out and compared to dangerous insurgents, who have “the potential to turn violent.” People concerned about the Second Amendment have “the potential to facilitate criminal activity and violence.” Conservatives are compared to dangerous extremists like the late Timothy McVeigh, who bombed the Oklahoma IRS building. It is claimed in the memo that these types of conservatives have formed their political views because they are racist against blacks and Obama. At the end, readers are urged to report these kinds of people to DHS.

Napolitano was tapped by former President Bill Clinton for U.S. attorney after she came to public prominence as an attorney representing Anita Hill against Clarence Thomas at his judicial confirmation hearings, where Hill accused the married Thomas of sexually harassing her. In his book, The Real Anita Hill, David Brock documented how Napolitano put a witness on the stand who wasn’t corroborating Hill’s version of the facts, so Napolitano took her off the stand and had her return and claim amnesia. After leaving the U.S. attorney’s office, Napolitano became state attorney general, where her only memorable accomplishment was banning Christmas decorations from the public areas of the office, which received national attention and protest.

Next, as governor of Arizona, she stacked the courts with far left liberals, guaranteeing the outcome of many lawsuits and prosecutions for years down the road. Unlike her moderate Republican predecessors, who appointed a few judges from the Democrat Party, Napolitano appointed almost no Republicans to the bench, and her Democrat appointments have almost all been far left Democrats.

As DHS chief, Napolitano failed to secure the borders. During her tenure, DHS implemented a widespread policy of allowing department lawyers to selectively determine which illegal immigrants to pursue for deportation, and which to let go. ICE agents accused her in a lawsuit of failing to properly enforce immigration law over it. Napolitano also enacted a Dream Act-style policy giving young illegal immigrants a reprieve.

Arrests of illegal immigrants went up under Napolitano, evidence that more were sneaking across the border. Arrests increased by 13 percent between April 2009 and 2010, according to figures released by Customs and Border Protection. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, criticized Napolitano for not releasing numbers while claiming the border was more secure. “There is no statistic, metric or evidence that the border is more secure than ever. I went out there for a couple days and found multiple spots where you can see trails of people coming in. They were still apprehending massive amounts of drugs out there, this is a very porous border," he said.

Nonetheless, Napolitano declared with a straight face in March of 2011 that our border “is better now than it ever has been” and violence has not spilled into the United States.

This comes as no surprise to Arizonans, who saw Napolitano veto seven bills as governor aimed at curbing illegal immigration. Known for once saying, “You show me a 50 foot fence, I’ll show you a 51 foot ladder,” she maintained her opposition to border fences while at DHS.

Her record on terrorism at DHS has been dismal, as the Boston Marathon Bombers were able to kill three people and injure 264 more during her tenure. Many at DHS believe that Napolitano “checked out” on the agency ever since her stunning comment regarding a terrorist with a bomb aboard a plane in December 2009, where she asserted, "the system worked.” Investigations later revealed gaps in the vetting of airline passengers and security screening overseas. Napolitano also came under criticism for referring to the attempted bombing in Times Square as merely a "one-off."

In July 2012, a lawsuit was filed by an ICE employee against Napolitano, alleging discrimination against male staffers within DHS. The suit asserted that two of Napolitano’s top female staffers mistreated male employees, and that promotions were given to women who were friends of Napolitano. Furthermore, the suit alleged, when a complaint was filed with the EEOC, Napolitano launched a series of investigations against the whistleblower. One of the top female staffers eventually resigned, and nothing else appears to have been done.

Napolitano spent more time during her tenure at DHS targeting innocent U.S. citizens than protecting Americans from threats, earning her the nickname “Big Sis” from the Drudge Report. DHS started buying up hundreds of millions of rounds of ammunition, making ammunition scarce for Second Amendment-supporting gun owners. DHS claimed it was for ordinary target shooting practice, but much of the ammo consisted of hollow points, ammo that is generally reserved for lethal use since it is more expensive and destructive.

She implemented invasive body scans at airports under the Transportation Security Agency, which she forced to retract in May after public outrage. In March, it was discovered that DHS was collecting the private phone and internet records of Americans from telecommunication companies without their knowledge.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala. sums up Napolitano’s record at DHS the best, "Secretary Napolitano's tenure at the Department of Homeland Security was defined by a consistent disrespect for the rule of law," he said in a statement.

Napolitano is a poor choice to lead the University of California system, a position usually filled by an academic, not a highly partisan politician. Of course, the left preserves a revolving door for its elites between academia and politics. Napolitano has no advanced degree other than a law degree. One of the California regents, Sherry Lansing, slipped up and admitted, “some may consider her to be an unconventional choice.”

While many are pleased she will no longer be able to run rampant at DHS, or come back to Arizona, some in California aren’t happy about her moving there. “University of California students can look forward to the same authoritarian management style Secretary Napolitano brought to the Department of Homeland Security, hardly a bastion of free speech and open government,” said Rep. Doug LaMalfa, a California Republican. “While I am pleased to see her leave Homeland Security, Napolitano’s views are entirely incompatible with the UC system’s history of civil liberties and the decision to appoint her is perplexing.”

Napolitano is an extremist zealot who will stop at nothing to achieve her progressive agenda and stamp out conservatism. The California university system has undergone $1 billion in cuts over the past five years, resulting in tuition hikes, class shortages, furlough days and hiring freezes. Putting someone as disastrous as Napolitano in charge of a system on the verge of collapse should ensure its destruction, or at least turn it into something so politically correct that people make fun of it, such as what has happened to Wellesley College. The University of California school system should be very, very afraid.

It will definitely be someone with a seared conscience; someone willing to bring the whip down harder than even Nappy was willing to do;
probably a homosexual.

If you look at mentions of homosexuality in the Bible,
you’ll see that it is associated with a seared conscience - someone willing to totally ignore biblical morality and do egregious acts.

This is the type of person that Satan/leftists desire to be in positions of power and authority.

“Huge security fail with the Tsarneov brothers in Boston, she should be ashamed and mortified”


Yes ashamed right along side that douche bag Juan Williams who actually stated as fact last week that the USA has not been attacked under her watch.

Hmm!

Ft Hood: Camel monkey kills 13
Underwear Bomber tries but the bomb fails and the bull dyke says the system worked. So I guess Juan is giving her credit for this.

Time Square: Another sand monkey fails to construct an operational bomb and big lesbo takes credit.

Boston Bombing: Pure Islam at work but we cannot say that and somehow Juan does not include this as a failure of the dyke.

Juan, at best, should use his limited skills in journalism to selling newspapers at a shoe shine stand in NYCs porn district.

Very good point. Sometimes, reading the news is a matter of wondering how all of the day’s stories could somehow be related. I have found that doing so will make your prognostications quite good, even if there is no direct evidence.

Other unlikely by possible connections for today - Netanyahu talking about Iran being a matter of weeks from action - is this related to Big Sis leaving?

Is it related to what is planned for protests after the Zimmerman acquital?

Will she be out of office when the real violence starts, not from the right, but from the left?

Inquiring minds want to know.

This passage describes her and all the other ungodly liberals.

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Seriously? Incompatible? I'd say her views are completely compatible with the UC system.

I think she's a perfect fit for the job. My kids went to UC schools and as Chairmen of the College Republican clubs on campus, were all too aware of the "history of civil liberties"....What a joke!

So glad we are leaving CA soon and heading to NV.

That was my take, too. Bib Sis leaving is something to do with Snowden. I am still up in the air about Snowden. Some suggest it was to send info to Russia from Obummer via Snowden, and Snowden is just an Obummer mule. But I believe Snowden is young and idealistic and did something heroic for the good of the nation. I read somewhere a Professor has nominated Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize. Such irony if it were to happen...both Obummer and Snowden being awarded the same prize.

Happens the day Reid promises to end executive appointment filibusters. Way too coincidental.

As Az governor, Napolitano was known for backroom deals and ruthless targeting of conservatives, a pattern she continued as Obama's DHS chief.

In 2009, she issued the infamous DHS report entitled, "Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.”

She singles out America-loving groups who prefer the govt of the Founders---not the behemoth local and federal government we have now --- many going bankruot from sap-happy liberal programs.

Napolitano's contempt for America is palpable---she singles out Christians and single-issue groups opposing abortion and illegal immigration--comparing them to dangerous insurgents, who have “the potential to turn violent.”

She stupidly says people concerned about the Second Amendment have “the potential to facilitate criminal activity and violence.”

The report compares law-abiding Conservatives to dangerous extremists who bombed the Oklahoma IRS building----with the unsubstantiated claim that these types of conservatives have formed their political views because they are racist against blacks and Obama.

NAPOLITANO RESURRECTS THE INFAMOUS 1940-s ERA "STASI" urging citizen-snoops to "report" these kinds of people to DHS.

Good riddance. UofC---you can have her.
