30/45/25 for Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano.

    Those numbers above represent Favorable/Unfavorable/Don’t Know in the latest Rasmussen poll, and while Rasmussen itself notes that: At the time President Obama nominated her for the Homeland Security post in early December, 43% had no opinion of her. Since that time, her favorable ratings have remained constant, but her negatives have increased. That’s fairly typical for politicians as they get better known. …it’s still not | Read More »

    Finally, Something for which Obama Really Should Apologize…

    …his Secretary of Homeland Security insulting our northern neighbor: Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job? She appears to be about as knowledgeable about border issues as a late-night radio call-in yahoo. Wait a minute, I thought we voted out the late-night radio call-in yahoo’s back in November… In an interview broadcast Monday on the | Read More »

    Tougaloo College Gets Millions in Homeland Security Earmark

    Which of these is more common: Democrats abusing their positions of power to waste money, or Democrats showing they no longer take seriously the threat of terrorist attack? This scandal has them both. House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) is pushing earmarks worth millions of dollars for homeland security projects at the small Mississippi college that he attended, though the school could not explain | Read More »

    How to Spot a Terrorist Threat: A Liberal Primer

    Napolitano and Obama demonstrating how to turn your neighbor in to Homeland Security. “We believe in total anonymity. Just point to your pro-life neighbor or the retired veteran in the grocery store and we’ll take care of the rest.” For anyone who might be a little fuzzy on Janet Napolitano’s inter-office memo about the dangers of living next door to a military veteran, a pro-lifer, | Read More »

    Roy Blunt: “Protesting Taxing & Spending is Offensive to Taxers and Spenders”

    Just got off the phone with Roy Blunt. He was calling about the Department of Homeland Security report and called it “stupid.” He said he is pretty offended by it and we “cannot let the government get away without paying a price in public opinion,” which, he said, is really about all the Obama administration cares about right now. He said Missouri made the same | Read More »

    Not Even On The Agenda

    Uh-oh: Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano avoids mention of terrorism or 9/11 in remarks prepared for her first congressional testimony since taking office, signaling a sharp change in tone from her predecessors. Napolitano is the first homeland security secretary to drop the term “terror” and “vulnerability” from remarks prepared for delivery to the House Homeland Security Committee, according to a copy obtained by The Associated | Read More »

    Annex Mexico.

    Living in Texas, I’ve given a lot of thought on the issue of homeland security, especially as it applies to the border. Admittedly, here in the Panhandle, we’re about as far away from the Mexican border as you can be, and still live in the great State of Texas. However, you might be surprised to learn that border security is an issue that has a | Read More »

    Will This Janet Be Any Better?

    The Chandler Raid was a disaster. Maybe not quite a Waco-like disaster. But a disaster. And just as we wouldn’t want to recycle Janet Reno, Clinton’s attorney general, for another important security/law enforcement position, we don’t want to recycle Janet Napolitano for such a position either. Napolitano is currently governor of Arizona. But she was a Clinton U.S. attorney during the infamous Chandler Raid. In | Read More »

    So, John Brennan Gets Hired For Something After All

    See here. Yes, I know that this involves work on homeland security and not on intelligence but all of those people who decried his possible nomination as DCI and who celebrated his withdrawal from considering for the job because of his possible links to torture should be infuriated that he is getting any kind of job in the Obama Administration–particularly given the possibility that it | Read More »

    Khalid Sheikh Muhammed Might Just Win (in the end)

    If winning is to become a martyr in his world, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed may just win after all. A piece written by Walid Phares of Counterterrorism Blog shows how  Khalid Sheikh Mohammed has been playing the system to a no-win situation for the United States. As predicted, almost to the letter in my analysis in June, the men charged with plotting the September 11 attacks | Read More »

    Innocent life: McCain protects the “punishment” Obama lets die in soiled utility rooms

    [We swap editing roles for this one.]Originally published by Mike DeVine as Legal Editor for The Minority and HinzSight ReportsMy brilliant conservative, non-columnist friend in the banking industry desires, and rightfully so, that Obama and the Democrats be hit again and again – at least by McCain and his ads! – on a number of issues. My most recent economics column introduced Boata’s desire that | Read More »
