Better Sorry Than Safe?
No terror talk: Homeland Security head's new tone from Associated Press
In accordance with the terrorist-friendly lingo of the O'gasmic administration, the uniquely unqualified Janet Napolitano, newly appointed head of Homeland Security, has eliminated such unnecessary jargon such as terrorism, threat, war on terror, and all other verbiage previously used to describe the actionable intelligence which denotes the ongoing reality of globad jihad plaguing our shores. Long gone are the days in the aftermath of 9/11 whereby color coded status reports were utilized to report to the nation any and all possibilities of imminent concern, and long gone is Tom Ridge, former chief and architect of the Dept. of Homeland Security. Under the diligence of former Pres. George W. Bush ( like him or not), Michael Chertoff served in the same capacity and continued the path of prioritizing our nations safety.
With the advent of the emporer's plain speak, it is considered impolite policy to call a spade a spade, or a threat, a threat. Therefore, the aforementioned groups who continue to plan, mobilize, train, and wreak havoc on the world, shall heretofore
be known as "comrades who praise Allah."
Due to the loyalty (cronyism) of O'gasmic to his staunchest supporters, Janet Napolitano, former Governor of Arizona, is leading this most important department in an effort to root out naughty intentioned people before they get time-outs. Her ineffective record in her home state is on the record:
"Illegal Immigration critics are complaining that Arizona's former governor, now Secretary of Homeland Security, played politics when she announced a state of emergency during the Bush Administration in response to illegal aliens and then she vetoed a new bill that would aid law enforcement in curtailing rampant illegal immigration.
Then Gov. Janet Napolitano vetoed a bill that would have made the presence of illegal immigrants in Arizona a felony offense. She claims she was responding to the wishes of local police chiefs and sheriffs who want immigration arrests to remain the responsibility of the federal government.
The new bill would have expanded the state's trespassing law to let local authorities arrest illegal immigrants anywhere in Arizona, one of the country's busiest illegal entry point. The legislation passed through the state legislature but was summarily blocked by the Democrat governor.
In a letter to lawmakers, Napolitano said she opposed automatically turning all immigrants who sneaked into the state into criminals and that the bill provided no funding for the new duties.
But critics say she was being disingenuous with her statements. One police commander claims she failed to mention that entering the US illegally is already a crime, albeit a misdemeanor. In addition, reentry into the US once an alien is deported is already a felony in the US.
Besides illegal aliens, the bill would have put more teeth into Arizona law to deal with human smugglers and de facto slave-traders.
"It is unfortunate that the Legislature has once again ignored the officials who are most directly affected by illegal immigration and instead has passed yet another bill that will have no effect on the problem but that will impose an unfunded burden on law enforcement," Napolitano wrote in a press release.
However, when she declared a state of emergency in Arizona last year, following the lead of another Democrat governor -- Bill Richardson of New Mexico -- Gov. Napolitano spent millions on her deployment of National Guard troops on the Mexican border. Political analysts believe she declared the emergency in order to criticize the Bush Administration as did Gov. Richardsom."
The reader can brush up on the stellar accomplishments of Janet Reno's lookalike here.
Coupled with her announcement that it will be years before we are able to employ a fail safe system to check all ports for incoming nukes or biological weapons though the order was issued to do so in 2007, I know I can sleep soundly. Can you? Then again, I plan to sleep soundly in an underground bunker.
Thank you, Resident Select, for another politically motivated, biased, unworthy appointment.
