Don Martin: Napolitano makes Bush administration look well informed
The border for dummies
Chris Selley: Meet the new Homeland Security boss
The wacky world of Janet Napolitano
She said this:
"One of the things that we need to be sensitive to is the very real feelings among southern border states and in Mexico that if things are being done on the Mexican border, they should also be done on the Canadian border."
"In other words, we shouldn't go light on one and heavy on the other ... I don't mention this to suggest that everyone in this room will agree with that, I mention it to suggest it's something I have to deal with, and so I ask for your sympathy."
The National Post said this:
The Mexican border is so porous the U.S. is building a barrier from Texas to the Pacific to try and stem the flood of illegal immigrants. It's so dangerous President Barack Obama is sending hundreds more federal agents, hoping they can slow the violence spilling over into the U.S. In Ciudad Juarez, across from El Paso, 1,800 people were killed in 2008. There were 366 abductions in Phoenix, largely linked to Mexican human smugglers and narcotics gangs. Recent U.S. intelligence assessments warn Mexico risks becoming a violence-ridden "failed state" similar to Pakistan.
A British reporter, on a recent visit to Tijuana, bordering San Diego, wrote:
"The average is 120 murders a month and people talk of little else. On March 6 there were 12 murders, with eight the day before, and nine the day before that.
"Beheadings have become commonplace. Kidnappingis out of control, the victims held in cages all over the city. Mutilated bodies, often showing evidence of torture, are dumped in the streets with jeering, bragging notes pinned to them. There have been public gun battles involving .50-calibre machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades.
Gee that sure sounds like Canada eh? I mean, I was down in Windsor the other day, and, like, I saw a guy who drove right through a yellow light.
The Gazette (Montreal):
U.S. security boss is guilty of borderline stupidity
Sure looks like we have ticked off the Canadians. Janet Napolitano is an idiot.
Other editorials from south of the border:
Our biggest national crisis
A recently-leaked memo from the Department of Homeland Security, led by Sec. Janet Napolitano, was quietly distributed to police departments nationwide, warning local law enforcement officers to be especially vigilant of certain groups of people who may constitute terrorist threats.
Described as right-wing extremists in the report, individuals to be watched carefully include military veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, tax protestors, people who are unhappy with the destruction and deportation of our national manufacturing base, opponents of illegal immigration, folks who object to the impending unprecedented government deficit spending of trillions of taxpayer dollars on purported economic stimulus programs, those who object to the idea of losing our national sovereignty to a one-world government, and people who may object to the election of an African-American president. (Yes, they just had to get the race card in there to knock us off balance, didn’t they?)
Don’t believe me? Read the report online for yourself. It’s Orwellian.
Reagan: Are you a dangerous, right-wing extremist?
Do you reject “federal authority in favor of state or local authority,” or “government authority entirely”? Are you “dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration”?
If so, you are a dangerous, right-wing extremist according to Obama’s Department of Homeland Security, which bans the use of the word “terrorist” unless it’s applied to us right-wing extremists who, for example, are so extreme as to view the grisly murder of the unborn in their mothers’ wombs as cold-blooded murder.
Are you a veteran returning from Iraq or Afghanistan after risking life and limb to protect your fellow Americans? If so, you are a ticking time bomb likely to the recruited by those dangerous right-wing extremists.
After all, the vaunted Extremism and Radicalization Branch of the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, Department of Homeland Security, warns that you “possess combat skills and experience that are attractive to right-wing extremists,” and these Obama-ite loons are concerned that right-wing extremists “will attempt to recruit and radicalize returning veterans in order to boost their violent capabilities.”
Have we really come to this? Has Adolf Hitler’s propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels been reborn and recruited by the Obama administration to scare the heck out of the American people with absurdities such as this whacked-out document?
Obviously recognizing that public knowledge of the nonsense alleged in this document is very undesirable, the weirdoes who prepared it did not want you to see it.
They warn: “No portion of the LES information should be released to the media, the general public, or over non-secure Internet servers.”
Too bad. The Washington Times got their hands on a copy and revealed it to the entire world.
Once it became public and many Americans reacted in disbelief, the Obama White House disavowed it despite the fact that a document as explosive as this could never have been distributed without the president’s explicit approval in the first place.
I wonder how Janet Napolitano got her job. She is head of homeland security, but she doesn't like to use the word terrorism on the world stage. She likes to say "man caused disasters". She did this because the word terrorism envoked the dreaded "politics of fear". Please. F'in gag me. I think terrorists are in the business of the politics of fear. That is what they do.
She seems to have no problem with labeling our own military as terrorists though, politics of fear be damned! She is clueless. She is the head of Homeland Security. She is the one in charge or enforcing our borders and defending this nation from terrorist attacks. She equates Canada with Mexico and asks for your sympathy. Why would your sympathy matter in matters of national security? She isn't square on the fact the illegal immigration is in fact illegal. And the head of our security had no clue how 9/11 happened.
I really wonder how someone like this got the job. When I hear the PC stuff about appeasing Mexicans and thinking about their feelings, showing some sympathy...
And then you realize this woman in charge of our borders doen't know imigration law and is woefully ignorant of how 9/11 happened. How can you run Homeland Security if you have no clue how 9/11 happened. Please shoot me now.
In her world we should be worried about the Canadians that stand and fight along with us, along with the US Military which has always been suspect in liberal circles. Sphere: Related Content
