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.

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’?
“Trust but verify” Here are related links to confirm it’s not sarcasm:
April Fools Day early this year?
This ‘Female Dog’ isn’t fit to be a feces catcher at your local dog park. Probably has the IQ of a box of bricks! In spite of just how fun it would be to watch her fail(...and boy would she ever), I just care too much for my country to want to see the country suffer debacle happen!
Can’t we just appoint ayman zawahiri???
What are the chances that “do” came out of the expense account.
Most of the comments at the Chronicle have been blocked. Too bad.
The rising power of another black klan group.
I’m seeing a whole lot of “This comment was left by a user who has been blocked by our staff.”
If by appointing her would be a political advantage ....Obama would do it....
He would not think twice about it...
After all it’s all about him.....screw the country....
