Obama to tap ex-Pentagon official for Homeland Security
What do you think is going to come of this changing of the guard at the Department of Homeland Security? I have an idea:
President Obama plans to nominate former Pentagon attorney Jeh Johnson as the next secretary of homeland security, officials said Thursday. Johnson, general counsel for the Defense Department during Obama's first term, will be introduced by the president at a ceremony on Friday.Mr. Johnson has compared DC's wars and assassinations to the work of Martin Luther King--a prime example of how liberalism and especially Civil Right Mythology provide cover for militarism. In his new position, Johnson will certainly push aggressively to expand DC's reach and power, while continuing to promote a leftist agenda--again, giving a benign face to global bullying while silencing potential dissent from the left. From the USA Today article:
His specialties include cybersecurity, officials said. He played a key role in repealing the Pentagon's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy that prohibited gay service members. Johnson, who left his Pentagon post in 2012, also provided legal guidance in the use of unmanned drones against terrorism suspects overseas, and the use of military commissions -- rather than civilian courts -- to try suspects. The homeland security nominee also led a crackdown on unauthorized new leaks at the Defense Department, including a warning to a former Navy SEAL who wrote a book about the 2011 raid that killed Osama bin Laden.After all, now that Republicans have caved to EVERY Obama demand, they're washed up as a brake on Obama's agenda. Obama now only has to satisfy his left wing--and they're looking pretty contented at the moment.
