The Queen of Texas
NRO ^ | Aug 1, 2013 | Ian Tuttle

Posted on 08/01/2013 7:07:52 AM PDT by kevcol



The Congressional Black Caucus is recommending that Jackson Lee replace Janet Napolitano as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
.
.
Then the CBC adds that she would be a “voice of reason” at DHS.
.
.
She even complained that devastating natural disasters are used to promote racism, telling The Hill in 2003 that hurricane names are too “lily white” and that “all racial groups should be represented.” She suggested more hurricanes named “Keisha, Jamal, and Deshawn.”

Beyond arguing that America should be directing its drone strikes at remaining grand wizards, Jackson Lee’s homeland-security expertise is scant, although she does have personal experience with one global hotspot: Jackson Lee was so impressed with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad, she told the Houston Chronicle when she arrived home from a 2003 “fact-finding” mission in the Middle East, that she invited him to come speak in Texas. “Let’s see what he can do,” she said of the strongman

Jackson Lee made her thoughts clear to her onetime Capitol-office executive assistant, Rhiannon Burruss, years ago: “I am a queen, and I demand to be treated like a queen.”

Only racism can explain why Hillary is considered presidential timber, but not the charismatic Jackson Lee!

Houston Texas harbors some of America’s biggest racists. I know from experiencing it when they bussed masses of feral humans, most of whom acting like dung slinging monkeys, into our neighborhood elementary school.

Apologies to dung slinging monkeys

LOL. If it wasn’t such a critical position to defend the country, I’d love to have Sheila Jackson Lee as a cabinet secretary for the pure entertainment value.

You got that right. We are honored to have the likes of Quanell X and his band of useful idiots as well as Queen Sheila who couldn’t pour pee out of a boot with the directions wrote on the bottom. We’re blessed I tell ya!

If we thought DHS was broken under the Napalitano, wait till this ignert buffoon takes the helm.

Good news though, the faster she breaks it, the faster we can begin the rebuilding of this once great nation.

Sheila Jackson Lee should be an inspiration to us all! She is living proof that you can be a successful congresscritter despite having severe mental disabilities.

I will never forget when she toured NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratories during the Mars Pathfinder mission and asked if the Mars Pathfinder had taken an image of the flag planted there in 1969 by Neil Armstrong.

Good one. All McCain cares about now is his "legacy," i.e., plaudits from Dems and the media.

No, I think what happened is that SJL had this "revelation" that she could be DHS Secretary. Kind of like me having the revelation that I could be the CEO of Apple.

So, she went to her fellow CBC members, and asked: "wouldn't that be cool?". And they said: "Yeah, if a white woman can be DHS Secretary, why not a black woman? We need more black women in the Cabinet!"

It's racial identity politics, nothing more.

__________________________________________________

Exactly!

As this fool is entering the end of the twightlight years of his life, he’s even more desperate than ever to get favorable coverage from the liberal press that he loves so much.

John McCain is a backstabbing traitor. Oh, and I could give a rats a$$ about his military service. Unlike many, I don’t feel the need to preface my comments about him with the tired and worn out: “I respect his military service, but blah...blah...blah...” Sorry, but this POS voted to take away other Americans rights to free speech (McCain-Feingold); he has none of my respect!

______________________________________________________

Correction:

I meant to say he authored legislation to take away other Americans rights to free speech.

As a member of the military, wasn’t he sworn to protect and uphold our Constitution? Therefore he has none of my respect for his military service. He certainly had no respect for what his service stood for.

Could you elaborate on exactly what it is that 'homeland security' does that is so critical?

The only thing I've ever noticed them doing is actively attempting to subvert and destroy the Constitution.
