Rules for Dealing With Right Wing Radicals
The dragging manacles scrapping along the halls of power belong to the ghost of Saul Alinsky. He is the phantom influencing the tenor of the politics insuring that left-wing policies are implemented, unobstructed by dissension. Alinsky taught his mentee well and now Barry is able to apply the principles of Rules for Radicals to every person or group who disagrees with him in any venue | Read More »
Hello, my fellow DHS-designated extremists.
Whether or not you agree with my politics, don’t worry: you’re probably in here somewhere. It’s a report from last month called the “Domestic Extremism Lexicon,” and it’s quite comprehensive. Did you know that anti-abortion protesters and animal rights activists are domestic extremists? Yes, the same sloppy language as last time. So bad, in fact, that they tried to bury it… Hot Air and The | Read More »
Obama Admin. Decides Racial Profiling is OK After All
It seems that Janet Napolitano, the new Secretary of Homeland Security, has given a spirited defense of the recently released “threat assessment” that her department released on April 7. The report is supposed to give the DHS a heads up about who they need to be watching as possible domestic terrorists. It included veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, due to them “facing significant challenges | Read More »
McCain Doubles Down on Napolitano’s Canada Blunder….
Charging again to yet another Democrat’s rescue, with all his bi-partisanship and collegiality, John McCain doubled down on DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano’s diplomatic blunder by defending her assertion that the 9/11 highjackers reached the US through Canada. “Well, some of the 9-11 hijackers did come through Canada, as you know,” McCain, last year’s Republican presidential candidate, said on Fox News on Friday. The Arizona senator’s | Read More »
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 »
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 »
