Report: Napolitano to Resign
The Weekly Standard ^ | July 12,2013 | Daniel Halper

Posted on 07/12/2013 7:32:20 AM PDT by Hojczyk

Here's the statement from Napolitano:

“For more than four years I have had the privilege of serving President Obama and his Administration as the Secretary of Homeland Security. The opportunity to work with the dedicated men and women of the Department of Homeland Security, who serve on the frontlines of our nation’s efforts to protect our communities and families from harm, has been the highlight of my professional career. We have worked together to minimize threats of all kinds to the American public. The Department has improved the safety of travelers; implemented smart steps that make our immigration system more fair and focused while deploying record resources to protect our nation’s borders; worked with states to build resiliency and make our nation’s emergency and disaster response capabilities more robust; and partnered with the private sector to improve our cybersecurity. After four plus years of focusing on these challenges, I will be nominated as the next President of the University of California to play a role in educating our nation’s next generation of leaders. I thank President Obama for the chance to serve our nation during this important chapter in our history, and I know the Department of Homeland Security will continue to perform its important duties with the honor and focus that the American public expects.”

What could Incompetano do after leaving her prestigious position running an organization that should never have been established in the first place?

How in hell did she get elected governor of Arizona?

She could get herself a Harley-Davidson franchise and call it Dykes on Bikes.

Timing is too coincidental. *JUST* before the Zimmerman riots???!? Somethin’s up. I think she was asked to step aside to make way for an as-yet-unknown actor, unappointed of course, to coordinate the New Police State and the Martial Law that will follow the Zimmerman riots.

Well, good riddance. Of course the down-side is that Obama probably already has a short list of potential successors every one of whom will be even worse.

Scary part is the miss-fit that will replace her.

Just in time before the race riots in Floriduh and across the country when George Zimmerman is found not guilty or for some minor crime like not cleaning his pistol before he defended himself.

Funny coincidence...yesterday Dingy Harry was saying he will use nuclear option for getting nominations for executive office jobs done if necessary.

His magnificant eminence must have a real beauty in mind for this job. Bill Ayers?? Just a joke, perhaps but someone of that ilk.

“Effective today” ???

Are you certain? I haven’t seen any source stating WHEN she is leaving-—only that she is “resigning.”

Do you have a link?

I think they are going to try and put some blame on her, and I'm sure Obama's people are responsible for her being taken care of. What they are going to blame on her, I don't know, because IRS is Department of Treasure, and NSA is DOD.
