Skip to comments.Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary
Posted on 07/30/2013 1:48:55 AM PDT by TexGrill
Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.
A letter dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.
Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security, the nomination letter reads.
Since entering Congress in 1995, Jackson Lee has served on several committees, including Foreign Affairs, Judiciary and Homeland Security, in which she was the Chairwoman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection.
As Chairwoman, Representative Jackson Lee supported increased airplane cargo inspections and increased security for railroads, issues of great importance to the security of this nation and its citizens, the letter continues.
Jackson Lee currently holds the post of Ranking Member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, a position that the CBC says she stands as a strong and honest voice of reason.

I wouldn’t let this twit mop floors at McDonalds.
Shouln’t even be in congress...total nut case
God, the situation in America goes from dumb to dumber.
How much more can one take?
“I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen.”-
Sheila Jackson Lee
FReepers we got some competition. Take a look a the comments on the Houston Chronicle article. They’re hilarious, but we should step up to the plate and do better.
“You’ve got to be kidding me. Just the thought of this makes me shudder. Can she even find the U.S. on a map?”
An example of comment posted by a Houston Chronicle reader
However, this seems to be the most frequent comment: “never seen so many comments blocked ...”
I have to wonder if there is a single non Democrat in DC with the courage to say “We have humored your destructive policies and stupidity long enough.”
It’ll be a chilly day in Hades before a suspicious character slips by an intellectual like Sheila Jackson Lee. We’ll be in good hands. How will her district find someone to replace her if this transpires?
Leave it to the Houston Comical to suggest that only conservatives think she’s a batsheet crazy moron unsuited for high office.
Even her own berated and mistreated staff says she is the worst person to work for.
But don’t that stand in the way of her political advancement using the Peter Principle to rise to the level of your own incompetence.
“Think I’d rather put a drug cartel ringleader in charge of Homeland Security before her. We’d get the same result just wouldn’t need to see her mugshot as much.”
My favorite Houston Chronicle comment so far.
Not anywhere I’ll eat. Jessie J spit on the food. This fool aould use another bodily function beginning with “S” and claim whites o-pressing her caused it.
Congressional Black Caucus: RACIST PANEL
Sheila Jackson Lee: 1: to slow up especially by preventing or hindering advance or accomplishment : impede
All the phony “free” press are the same these days. Even the ones with a more conservative editorial column still run lefty AP news and such on the other pages.
I bet the Austin Armpit-StinksMan has something similar or soon will.
She would be restricted to the bathroom area. Call that the throne rooms.
Sheila needs to go on Michelle’s school starvation meal program.
Ever see what some severely mentally handicapped people do with feces? In my youth many moons ago, I worked at a state facility for a couple years. Two things: 1: It ain’t pretty. 2: This person qualifies as such based solely on her public record.
Ergo, I wouldn’t let her in a rest room either.
Ah, yes. The Medusa look. Very nice. Suits her.
“Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary” ....
In words everyone can understand, “You have got to be shit&ing me”. This is satire, right?
The Comical defended Lee P. Brown’s incompetence until he was safely re-elected to his final term.
Satire? Maybe it’s just a satirical spoof?
Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant. I cannot imagine a better choice.
Actually I think this would be a great idea. I would love to see his administration filled with Lee’s , Mckinney’s, and Sharpton’s. Maybe that would be the slap in the face this country needs.
Come to think about it, this is “Brilliant.” I’m looking at the Houston Chronicle comments, and even Democrats are saying this would be an “awful” pick. The Obama voters are claiming, “Obama isn’t that stupid ...” So I really do hope Sheila Jackson Lee raises a ruckus and does whatever it takes to get herself nominated. She would not only be the laughing stock for Houstonians, but she would capture the attention of comedians all over the world. Wow, just imagine the DHS if SJL is in charge. If this appointment doesn’t convince Americans to vote Republican then America is doomed.
Don’t know what kind of butt kissing has gone on behind the scenes by Sheila but she angered the black community and Obama when she endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2008.
Jackson Lee as HomeyLand Sec. will be Lynch Whitey
Are we thinking of the same Sheila Jackson Lee?
Because we don’t have enough stupid people in government running more agencies. (snicker)
Obama would do it, too. And the spineless Rs in the Senate would confirm her.
Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, a Democrat (Dallas’ Al Sharpton) did the same and endorsed Hildabeast too. I was a blogger in Dallas at that time and the night before I had a few too many beers. I show up late for the Dallas County Commissioners’ Court that week. I always make it a point to ask Price at least one question. I bring my yellow legal pad, to take notes and I ask him, “as a leading member of the African-American community in Dallas, would you consider it racist to vote for Hillary.?” I had my pen ready for his answer, and for the first time ever, he was silent. I just looked at my paper and asked again ... another pause. Price kept doing a fake cough, so I looked at him and then he would point at his “Hillary Clinton for President” campaign button. I was astounded to say the least. That afternoon, I rushed back to my desk and called black radio stations to ask what they thought about Price’s betrayal. They all thought I was lying so I told them to contact Price’s office to confirm and call me back with their response. A morning DJ on K104 FM followed my instructions and when he called me back, he said I speak on behalf of all black radio station personalities in the DFW metroplex, “no, f***ing comment.”
Yes, here’s my comment. Putting Lee in charge of the DHS would just be the final step in implementing Obama’s Civilian Defense Corps that is as “well staffed, well funded and well armed” as the military.
To me, putting this woman in charge is akin to realizing the government goon squads described in the “Turner Diaries”
The DHS is not going to use that billion rounds of hollow point ammo, those black Blackhawk helicopters, those black MRAPs, those black Predators, and the thousands upon thousands of “Personnel Defense Weapons” (what they’d call an assault rifle if they caught you and me with one) just to kill ‘terrorists’ They haven’t killed one yet have they? Did you see any of that stuff in Boston? Nope.
They are there to keep another American Revolution from occurring. They’re just the King’s soldiers with much better weapons. Regardless, they are still our enemy.
Would make for a most entertaining tragedy!
She’s black. What other qualifications could you possibly want? /s
Then the racial tyranny can move forward. Barry Holder and Lee.
This is the Onion right??
America IS doomed. We saw millions of Republicans sit at home out of spite rather than vote for Romney, after seeing what Obama had done do the country in his first term.
This reminds me. You guys ever see that movie ‘Idiocracy’?
