Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

Sheila Jackson Lee 2Conservative bloggers went wild Monday when they got wind of the Congressional Black Caucus’ suggestion that President Obama pick Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston for the post of Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Rich Cooper, avid blogger for Security Debrief, responded to the news of the Jackson Lee recommendation in a post by saying, “Apparently, it is not a joke. For reasons that baffle any sense of reality, it is a serious gesture on the part of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to encourage President Obama to nominate Rep. Jackson Lee as a replacement for outgoing-DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano.”

A letter dated July 25 and signed by CBC Chairwoman Rep. Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, urges President Barack Obama to consider Jackson Lee for the position formerly held by Janet Napolitano, the first woman to hold the position. Napolitano resigned earlier this month to become president of the University of California.

“Representative Jackson Lee would serve as an effective DHS Secretary because she understands the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security,” the nomination letter reads.

Congressional Black Caucus recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security Secretary

I know I’m a bit late to the party on this story, I would have already had something up on this but my Internet connection and phone has been down ALL day, today of all days.

There are many reasons that Sheila Jackson Lee should NOT be the Secretary of DHS, and none of it has to do with her *race*, it has to do with the fact, yes, the FACT that Sheila Jackson Lee is too stupid to breathe if it required any thought process.

The following is taken from this site: Sheila Jackson Lee - Controversies, Scandals, and Gaffes. Any errors in accuracy, spelling or grammar are theirs.

Republicans Won’t Raise Debt Ceiling Because Obama is Black - 2011-07-15

During a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee stated that Republicans were refusing to raise the debt ceiling because President Obama is Black

Offensive Pepsi Commercial - 2011-02-09

In February of 2010, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee spoke on the House floor about a pepsi commercial that aired during the super bowl and her belief that the commercial was offensive.

TEA Party accusations - 2010-07-17

In July of 2010, Sheila Jackson Lee spoke at an NAACP event and accused TEA Party members of being modern day members of the Klu Klux Klan.

Two vietnams - 2010-07-15

In a speech on the floor of the US House, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee spoke about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and used the example of North and South Vietnam living side by side as an example of the peace that can be achieved by withdrawing our troops and allowing the people of Iraq and Afghanistan to work out a solution.

Townhall phone call - 2009-08-12

On August 12, 2009 a town hall event was held in Houston to discuss health care for the benefit of those in the 18th district. At the first town hall, in the middle of a question, Representative Jackson Lee answered her cell phone and talk for several minutes while a question from the citizen continued. She then appeared on numerous news shows and stated that the call was related to congressional business.

Phony doctor at townhall - 2009-08-12

At a town hall on August 12, 2009 a woman named Roxana Mayer identified herself as a Primary Care Physician and stated that while our system is the greatest in existence, it is poor in terms of preventative care. She asked how the Democrat’s plans would address this issue.

All (Whites) are Racists - 2006-09-30

When confronted by opponents of illegal immigration, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee asked the ethnic origins of the protestors and when one lady responded that she was of French and Spanish heritage, Congresswoman Jackson Lee stated that she therefore knew her opinions of people like her as an African American. The obvious implication was that the protestors were racists.

The list of gaffes, errors and sheer stupidity go on and on.

In my opinion the above tells me ALL I need to know about Sheila Jackson Lee and her own brand of incompetence. That incompetence will make her the ideal candidate to take a Cabinet position in the Obama regime!

And for what it’s worth; what does this say about the Congressional Black Caucus and their support OF Sheila Jackson Lee?

One last thing; send this along to your Congress members and Senators. If they’re not too busy with their own committees and such, maybe they’ll take a look at this and work hard in an effort to keep this FOOL, Sheila Jackson Lee OUT of the regime.

Yes, that last IS directed at a particular Member of Congress. He KNOWS.

    Rep. Lee is a Moron. The Black Caucus is made up of Morons. Putting DHS in her hands would lead to every kind of trouble in the streets of America you can imagine. If Obama was to choose her, there would be no doubt left that he intends to be a dictator and needs loyal idiots around him to pull it off.

  2. dekare says:

    Okay…as Fred knows and most everyone else as well, I find it IMPOSSIBLE to respond to articles in a short and concise manner. The fact is, if I feel compelled to comment, it is because I am passionate of the subject and have a darn lot to say about it.

    I assure you that I am equally passionate over this idiocy announced here. But sadly, I am dumbfounded. My mouth is open, and nothing is coming out. All I will say at this time, is why am I in this handbasket and where did you say we were going?


    (as a side note, I will openly say that I am really starting to HATE anyone who voted for obama…and there are some family members that I am finding it more difficult everyday to speak to them, let alone not slap the shit out of them)

    …and yes, this is considered a short response for me.

  3. dekare says:

    On a side note, after a few more minutes to think about this. I can NOT for one instance believe that obama thinks she is the best person for the job. I am willing to bet that obama’s reason for placing her in this position is he knows full well it will raise racial tensions significantly.

    Every tyrant needs a chaotic out of control situation in order to declare martial law, remove our guns, and jail those he disagree with them. obama is going to use racial divide and race riots as his vehicle to accomplish this. Please, someone tell me I’m completely wrong and this is not the case. I would not mind in the least in being wrong on this one.

  4. Bob Mack says:

    Stupid AND subversive … a winning combination, apparently, for the Congressional Black Caucus. From my blog post of 7/6:
    “Arrogant, bombastic, and as dense as a bag of Lone Star river rock, Sheila Jackson-Lee has long been the primary exemplar of Mark Twain’s remark, ‘Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.’ However, this is America, where stupidity, even premeditated stupidity, is not a crime…”

  5. J. D. Longstreet says:

    It just keeps getting worse.
    Do you suppose the CBC just wants to be rid if her???


  6. Gary says:

    Wont anyone ever acknowledge that though blacks account for a mere 12.5% of the total US population (according to the 2010 US Census), via the Congressional Black Cacus and the NAACP, they garner the majority of media attention simply because of the color of their skin, forcing the continued divide by race, as demonstrated by the use of the terms ‘we’ and ‘they’.

    Nothing more than blacks perpetuating racism, and Sadly Jackson is the best ‘they’ got to offer.

  7. Mark Smith says:

    Obama could name her first knowing full well she will not make it, making it easier for his second person named and most likely no better than the first.

  8. cary says:

    Hey, on the “Silver Lining” side of the ledger … they won’t have to change the initials of the agency, once everyone realizes it has become the Department of Homeland Stupidity.

    Just sayin’ …

  9. LD Jackson says:

    Good grief! Are they really serious about this?

  10. himself9 says:

    and the circus of the absurd goes on

  11. BobF says:

    Congressional Black Caucus? This is the same Caucus which has Hank Johnson as one of its members. Johnson is the Congressman who though stationing additional Marines on Guam would actually cause the island to tip over. That right there should tell you the common sense behind their endorsement of Lee for Homeland Secretary.

  12. Working To Keep Freedom says:

    Making SJL DHS Secretary would be as stupid as voting Mickey Mouse POTUS…Oh wait, he is POTUS!! We’re in a heap of trouble now!!!!!!!

  13. Capt Ron says:

    I think a credential of holding the DHS post should be prior military service as an officer with extensive field service. Putting someone on the post without this experience is the blind leading the blind in my opinion.

    • Gary says:

      “…Putting someone on the post without this experience is the blind leading the blind in my opinion…”

      You mean like the last 5 years?

      remember the phrase “audasity of hope?”

      Now can we say “Audacity of stupidity?”

  14. Capt Ron says:

    Hey, Fred, have you seen the aspirin anywhere? And the duct tape? all this Tomfoolery from the Obama regime is making my head split. The racial tension is being wound as a mainspring. Where is the breaking point, I ask?

  15. Tex Reynolds says:

    Don’t forget she represents NASA, you know the guys who put those astronauts into space and landed the men who planted the US Flag on Mars. And this is a woman (?) who sits currently on the Homeland Security Committee and says Islam is not a problem.|

  16. Bunkerville says:

    Let them do it. Have at it. This just might do the trick in waking up our comatose electorate. Every word she says will be fodder for a political ad. Let the ignorance reveal itself.

  17. Kiril The Mad Macedonian says:

    The woman is a disgrace to Houston.

    Even I know that and I’ve only lived here since September!

  18. Abigail says:

    CBC: fostering racial togetherness:
    In 2007 Rep. William Lacy Clay, Jr., D-MO said, “Mr. Cohen (a white congressman representing a predominantly black district) asked for admission (to the caucus), and he got his answer. He’s white and the caucus is black. It’s time to move on. We have racial policies to pursue and we are pursuing them, as Mr. Cohen has learned. It’s an unwritten rule. It’s understood…there has been an unofficial Congressional White Caucus for over 200 years, and now it’s our turn to say who can join ‘the club.’ He does not, and cannot, meet the membership criteria, unless he can change his skin color. Primarily, we are concerned with the needs and concerns of the black population, and we will not allow white America to infringe on those objectives.”
    The bylaws of the caucus do not make race a prerequisite for membership, a House aide said, but no non-black member has ever joined.
    Doublespeak par excellence.
    Devisive? Racist? Hypocritial? Ignorant? Arrogant? Yes to all. As the CBC are leaders in the black community it is not hard to see why racial discord continues to percolate.

    And as the CBC thinks that the primary qualifications for DHS are understanding “the importance of increasing border security and maintaining homeland security” I sure would qualify as would everyone here! So, can I be DHS?

  19. Dorina says:

    Everyone of Obama’s appointees are either fools or corrupt and most of them are corrupt fools!

  20. Minuteman26 says:

    CBC = Congressional Black Communists. Sheila Jackonson Lee is one of the dumbest people on the planet. Shit will fly if she is appointed.

  21. Braden Lynch says:

    Can we please put the ADULTS back in charge soon?

    My lack of respect for her is so profound that it causes me to physically reel and stagger. To think she was ever elected and now considered for this position is at best comical.

    It has to be so that the POTUS has a fool in this position ready to do his bidding.

    • Gary says:

      Why not. He has Biden, Holder, Carney, et al. Might as well field an entire team of fools. The world laughs at us, and ignores the influence we once had.

      The only straw many of grasped at after O-knucklehead was elected was that he would enlist older folks with at least some experience to advise and guide him. His idiocy however, won out and is evidenced by his appointees and czars. Remember Van Jones, Kathleen Sebelius, Hilda Solis, Timothy Geithner? All that’s missing now is Forest Gump.

      • cary says:

        I’m pretty sure Forrest Gump has more common sense and business sense than all those mentioned.

    Don’t blame Texas for this idiot—she is a transplanted New Yorker.
