Photo of Janet Napolitano, a man-caused disaster
Janet Napolitano will be sorely missed for all her many missteps but now she is heading for another planet – the planet of California where she will feel right at home. She has been an amazing DHS Secretary and I mean that in a bad way.
She started off her tenure as Secretary of Homeland Security by claiming the 9/11 terrorists all came in from Canada. Big oops! They all came in from overseas. Canadians were thrilled with her comment [I’m kidding, they weren’t happy].
When the Christmas Day bomber failed to set off his underwear bomb to blow up a plane filled with passengers, Janet Napolitano tried to take credit for the foiled attempt. In fact, the passengers subdued the bomber – Abdulmutallab – after they noticed that he smelled badly, was making popping noises and finally went aflame. Janet said famously, “The system worked.! What system?!? Huh? What kind of system is this?
She also tried to suggest that Amsterdam didn’t screen him properly – that went over well with the Dutch!
Always politically correct, Napolitano referred to terrorism as a “man-caused disaster” because she wanted to move away from the politics of fear. No need to be afraid of terrorism any longer, Janet’s got it under control and the system works!
Remember Janet’s communications chief Sean Smith? He once threatened to “f—ing decapitate” the staff at the immigration office press shop. I guess PC doesn’t extend to the press shop!
Janet released thousands of criminal illegals from prison and threw them onto US streets allegedly because of sequester. When questioned, she said, “several hundred are related to sequester, but it wasn’t thousands,” and the “story developed its own mythology.” She lied or didn’t know what was going on, either is possible. Eventually the Obama administration admitted it was indeed thousands.
Napolitano bragged that the border is “more secure now than it’s ever been” because of our “amazing” technology while everyone knows that the border is not secure. The wilderness area alone is completely unattended and border agents are not allowed to enter because environmentalists fear they will upset the environment. Unsurprisingly, the drug cartels don’t care about the animals and have taken over a large swath of the US wilderness along the border.
She did admit that terrorists do come in across our southwest border “from time-to-time.”
Janet also said that securing the Canadian border was as important as securing our border with Mexico. I know what she means. All those illegals streaming across from Canada are really concerning! All those gringos coming in through Montana need to be stopped immediately!
No one can forget the video she produced entitled “RUN HIDE FIGHT.” It is an idiotic infomercial on what to do in an active shooter situation. As you can tell from the title, you run, hide and, if you have to, you fend off the man with the machine gun using a pair of scissors. Don’t worry, the system works!
Hoping sequester would case serious airport delays, she jumped the gun and said, “lines at some airports are already “150 to 200 percent as long as we would normally expect,.”
“We are already seeing the effects of the ports of entry, the big airports for example. Some of them had very long lines this weekend,” she said. “Look people, I don’t mean to scare, I mean to inform. If you’re traveling, get to the airport earlier than you otherwise would. There’s only so much we can do with personnel and please don’t yell at the customs officers, the TSA officers. They aren’t responsible for sequester.”
The spokesperson for LAX said they were experiencing no delays at all. The same was said at O’Hare, Atlanta, and elsewhere. The TSA said the same. Another big oops!
Janet continually downplayed possible terrorist attacks such as the one at the Army Recruiting Station in Times Square or the Ft. Hood massacre, which was classified as workplace violence.
Her Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties checklist for law enforcement was obtained by the Daily caller. Entitled, “Countering Violent Extremism Dos and Don’ts,” it informs local and national law enforcement officials that it is Obama administration policy to consider specifically Islamic criticism of the American system of government legitimate. Legitmate!?!?
No problem! The system works!
She didn’t have the same consideration for the tea party however. All those gatorade drinking, lawn chair carrying seniors running around with flags and copies of the constitution were of such concern that she classified them as “domestic terrorists” in 2009.
Her department’s manual titled, “Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment,” warned of tea party people and military veterans. That went over well with half the country!
The UK Daily Mail wrote that she promoted women with whom she had a ‘long relationship’ while her female staff tormented male colleagues with ‘sexually charged games.’ Sounds like fun if you’re not a male.
When Napolitano bragged about weapons seizures along the border she didn’t know if any were weapons lost during the botched Fast & Furious operation. She told Rep. Jason Chaffetz that she didn’t know anything but that certainly isn’t unusual in this administration!
In the immediate aftermath of the Boston bombing, she said ‘events in Boston were not part of a broader plot.’ That was something she could not possibly have known the day after the bombing.
After all her successes, she stands to make $750,000 a year to ruin, I mean run the University of California.
