Obama To Name Jeh Johnson Next Homeland Security Secretary [obama crony]
ABC ^ | Oct. 17, 2013 | MIKE LEVINE and MARTHA RADDATZ

Posted on 10/17/2013 2:36:54 PM PDT by matt1234

President Obama is expected to nominate former Pentagon lawyer Jeh Johnson as the next Homeland Security secretary, ABC News has learned.

--SNIP--

Johnson has called working for the Obama administration "the highlight of [his] professional life."

"I have been on an incredible journey with Barack Obama ... going back to November 2006 when he recruited me to the presidential campaign he was about to launch," Johnson said in a speech at Yale Law School last year. "I remember thinking then, 'This is a long-shot, but it will be exciting, historic, and how many times in my life will someone personally ask me to help him become president.'"

--SNIP--

In addition, Johnson [..] helped write the 250-page report that led to the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" in 2010, as his firm's website put it.

Well, he sure has that Il Duce look, doesn't he, to be Obama's new fascist appointment.

I hope someone follows up with the requisite photo.

The look.
The color and the lips.
His ears are too small, though. He’ll never fly.

No more complaining about home land security, he is the first black person to head the agency , Obama is going for the ‘first’ title.. OTOH any complaints about the way the agency is run will now be racist..

Johnson’s first name (pronounced “Jay”) is taken from a Liberian chief, who reportedly saved his grandfather’s life while Dr. Johnson was on a League of Nations mission to Liberia in 1930.

Johnson is active in Democratic Party politics, as a fundraiser and adviser to presidential campaigns. Johnson served as special counsel to John Kerry's 2004 presidential campaign,[9] and was an early supporter of Barack Obama's presidential campaign, active as a foreign policy adviser and as a member of his national finance committee.

“In recent years, he has urged the public to rethink how they view terrorists and the U.S. battle against terrorism, saying terrorists are no longer strictly aligned with Al Qaeda and have become “more of a mixed bag.””

Is the word “bag” a subliminal message?

His resume shows me a political hack Democrat lawyer who has worked his way up the system, but always as a lawyer.

I'd like to see ANY credentials (experience, schooling or training) in nuts and bolts SECURITY. He can have all the fancy and weighty titles they pass out like candy on Halloween....but show me the MEAT AND POTATOES!

You posted yours while I was typing mine. Talk about great minds think alike. The phrase "political hack" lawyer came to each of our minds at about the same time....one can't help but come to this conclusion after reading his resume at the link.

Does this mean we're linked for life?

LOL

No, it is just the newest example of a generation in this country who cannot spell. It is pronounced "Jay". But, it is now spelled so you have to wonder, as you wondered, if it is "bleh".

Very good! They’re overconfident and bumbling and they have no idea what the people of this country really feel. They just talk to each other.

The worse thing that could happen is they put someone who seems reasonable in place.

The best thing Obama could have done for amnesty was fire Big Sis and appoint Steve King as DHS Secretary.

An "Uncle Tom" if ever there was one. He be sellin' out the American People for the sake of Obama's coercive utopianism.

I do not understand why the MSM cannot see past the skin color to be a least a little critical of this persons lack of experience for the post to which he is appointed.Now Homeland Security will become nothing but an arm of the Obama campaign.

Johnson actually reminds me of Heinrich Luitpold Himmler, who founded the SS, and was instrumental in prosecuting The Holocaust..Johnson has the same squinty eyed, benevolent coercive utopian look about him.

Rand Paul’s immigration speech
03.19.13 | Hon Sen Rand Paul (KY)
Posted on 03/19/2013 7:04:07 AM PDT by Perdogg
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2998395/posts

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.

Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.

Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.

Let’s start that conversation by acknowledging we aren’t going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.

If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...

This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.

Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

[but he’s not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]

A former top lawyer in the US Defence Department who drew criticism from some when he told an audience at Oxford University last year that America's war on terror would not go on forever will be nominated by President Barack Obama as his next Secretary of Homeland Security...

Interesting comment; just when can you expect Homeland Security to stop fighting terrorism?

You got to take in consideration that when the Obama regime and the main stream media refer to terrorists they mean Christians and Conservatives. Their war on "terrorism" has not begun yet. They are still getting their troops in position. when that task is completed, then they will strike.

The Christians and Conservatives response? Like the Jews in the 1930s Germany, they feel that if they do not acknowledge the problem, it does not exist along with the tried and true, "It will never happen here."

<...."Homeland Security will become nothing but an arm of the Obama campaign".....

They all get their chance for a position who worked for Obams campaign, the 'promise' was to "reward" all those who did so....experience isn't required...all that's required is they are favorable to Obamas agenda and willing to push it like they did his election. Which is how they are running our nation........Because there are no experienced people at the top is why our nation is in the state it is.
