CBC recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security post
The Washington Times ^ | 30 Jul 2013 | Jessica Chasmar

Posted on 07/30/2013 6:39:32 AM PDT by mandaladon

Just two weeks after Janet Napolitano announced her resignation as Secretary of Homeland Security, the Congressional Black Caucus has suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot.

A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a “voice of reason” that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported. “Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the letter reads. Mrs. Jackson Lee currently serves as a ranking member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, a position that the caucus said she “stands as a strong and honest ‘voice of reason.’”

We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.

Barack Obama

Not the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (which is still obsessed with enforcing their “two Gordon Lightfoot records per hour” minimum).

Aside from being a moron and a foghorn, this woman has serious mental issues. Not that Uncle Janet was any prize.

Well, you know that Obama will appoint another left wing nutcase with no qualifications or expertise for the job. Might as well be Lee.

She'll want Cynthia McKinney as her assistant, no doubt.

We already have too many anti-Americans in the government.

Obama will appoint her because he appoints those he thinks will do the most damage to the country. Matter of fact I will bet on it.

Did the Congressional Black Caucus make this offer just so Obama could point and laugh at the CBC? The CBC takes orders from Obama, not the other way around.

Somebody mentioned that making Rachel Jeantel the nominee would be a better choice. Far more brainpower, for one thing. And less radical thinking, with maybe a more graceful public aspect.

Now that we have John Brennan as DCI, perhaps we should install Keith Ellison at Homeland Security.

And the ONLY potential successor to the last DHS Secretary...

a Leftist diesel-dyke...

is a foul-mouthed, bigoted ghetto queen.

It’ll fly through committee and pass on the Senate with 96-0.

Skin color is not a job qualification. I’d have no problem with naming the best qualified candidate for that job, regardless of melanin levels, but that has as little to do with ability as eye color does. Only a racist would use that trivial detail as the primary determinant.

This could actually be a good thing.

First, it gets an idiot out of Congress, and Houston another chance to elect someone who actually has two brain cells to rub together.

But the real kicker is this--She's so much of an idiot that DHS would flounder and become totally ineffective with her "leading" it. We could actually gain some freedoms back.

The other side of that coin is that DHS would try to become a totalitarian police force out to destroy not only her personal enemies, but anyone she may see as a threat--which would be everyone.

So--it's a coin flip.

The CBC is a racist organization and is worse than the KKK because it oppresses the very people it claims to support.

I'm in favor of this. Let's give America a chance to get to know one of the CBC's best and brightest. Let's play clips of her memorable quotes. Let's put her out in front of the cameras every day.

Homeland Security is joke. Let's expose Homeland Security, Ms. Lee and CBC all in one stroke.
