CBC recommends Sheila Jackson Lee for Homeland Security post

Jackson LeeJust two weeks after Janet Napolitano announced her resignation as Secretary of Homeland Security, the Congressional Black Caucus has suggested Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Houston fill her spot.
A letter dated July 25 and signed by Rep. Marcia Fudge, Ohio Democrat and caucus chairwoman, urges President Obama to consider Miss Jackson Lee for the position, calling the Democrat a “voice of reason” that the agency could stand to gain, the Houston Chronicle reported.

This is also the woman that when the rover landed on Mars asked if they could get it to go to where our Astronauts had plated the American Flag.  She is dangerous, severely stupid and is the last person that should be given that kind of power.

  1. I see that despite suffering torture, degradation, trumped up charges, a bent prosecutor and court (which disallowed much defence evidence and allowed the prosecution to change some chares at the end of the trial), Bradley Manning has defeated the most serious charge against him of aiding and abetting the enemy.

    Well of course he didn’t aid and abet the Feds.

    This hero, whom every American should thank for his service, will still be held for decades in some grim dungeon. Who can blame Edward Snowden for doing a bunk, and Julian Assange for holding tight, when they see the vengeance Satanic State against Manning?

  2. he’s a piece of shit and still faces upto 136 years in prison. Hopefully Leavenworth where they still make the prisoners make little rocks out of big ones.

    The verdict proves he got a fair trial and was able to at least the worst charge. Justice is served.

  3. Troll –

    A state which imprisons the likes of Manning while giving the SJLs power and riches is completely insane.

  4. Troll – in ‘aiding and abetting the enemy’, who is the enemy?

    Somebody has decided that China is the next enemy and first-strike is the game plan.

    http://yalejournal.org/2013/06/12/who-authorized-preparations-for-war-with-china/

    The United States is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress. This important change in the United States’ posture toward China has largely been driven by the Pentagon.

    So Troll, are you happy with your new enemy?

  5. Bradley Manning is a narcissistic fool has got what he deserved.

    If he had just leaked the helicopter footage he might have been able to consider himself a whistle blower but he didn’t he stole everything he could find and then passed it on to the runaway rapist of Ecuador to use for sinister purposes.

  6. ….to use for sinister purposes.

    Ross – Can you give an example of these “sinister purposes”?

  7. As a great man put it, truth is treason in the empire of lies.

    The USAF killed almost 100 children in the Granai massacre, hardly anyone has heard of it because court reporters have kept compliantly schtum, those who perpetrated it get on with their careers and the man who blew the gaff on it is about to be sent to a dungeon because he’s the one who committed crimes, apparently.

    Belief in the State is objectively insane.

  8. Yes, Assange has given all the information pertaining to the USA’s dealings with the former USSR to the neo-Nazi, holocaust denier Israel Shamir ( I probably don’t have to tell you who he is), who is a rabid supporter of the likes of Putin and Lukashenko, so any information the USA has on dissidents will go straight to the secret police.

  9. These ‘dissidents’ in Russia who have dealings with the US are effectively agents who were acting in the interests of American disruptive agencies, like the subversives who funded the desecration of a Russian Cathedral by ‘Pussy Riot’. If I were you Ross, I wouldn’t believe The Guardian – their articles are written by spotty youths who have no real knowledge of the outside world, as one sees below:

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/cifamerica/2011/nov/08/israel-shamir-julian-assange-cult-machismo

    A commentator writes:

    So, Shamir makes a valid point “Strong men are prone to rebellion, ready for sacrifice and primed for action”. He’s talking about strong men vs. weak men. But you throw the point completely off track by mischaracterizing it as somehow being a dig at women.

    Then we’re told he has a reputation for being an antisemite with no evidence provided. Sorry, but asking for info on “the Jews” is not antisemitic.

    That quote about Western women is taken from an ALLEGED Assange OK Cupid profile from five years ago. jesus…

    This is somehow sufficient evidence to write the organization off and get in one last snide dig about their masculinity.

    What is the Guardian’s agenda in character assissinating him?

  10. Allan EVERYONE is the Enemy.

    Troll – that is a non-answer. US-military Inc. is now making preparations for a (lucrative and highly destructive, hence lucrative) war with China, yet one sees no Chinese military of America’s shores. What is the basis for creating this new enemy other than money? Does the American public agree with this?

  11. China is an expansionist regional threat and we are a Pacific power with many friends in the region.

    If you don’t think that they’re a threat to the region, ask a Japanese, Taiwanese, Vietnamese or Phillippine national. There is no reason to freak out, but there is every reason to keep an eye on things.

  12. it’s called defense Allan. History has proven over and over that the weak get conquered. Do you believe the world has changed?

  13. We are a sea power, as the UK once was, when it used to be a confident nation with a proper Navy.

    If you lose freedom of the seas, you lose everything.

    China thinks that it owns a huge chunk of those Pacific waters

  14. This is also the woman that when the rover landed on Mars asked if they could get it to go to where our Astronauts had plated the American Flag.

    Maybe, but does she know where Afghanistan is?

    They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan

    http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2008/10/05/in-slip-up-palin-calls-afghanistan-our-neighboring-country/

    She is dangerous, severely stupid and is the last person that should be given that kind of power

    You betcha!!

  15. There seems to be an interesting alignment between the class of Americans who would benefit financially from preparation for war and its implementation as a policy (always in other countries) and the class of Americans who would be expected to go to these far-away countries to kill whoever the enemy is and possibly die or be maimed so that the former can get richer. If the latter are really good, they’ll get some medals. This has happened before, as predicted in 1937:

    WAR is a racket. It always has been

    It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

    A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small “inside” group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few, at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

    In the World War [I] a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. That many admitted their huge blood gains in their income tax returns. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

    At each session of Congress the question of further naval appropriations comes up. The swivel-chair admirals of Washington (and there are always a lot of them) are very adroit lobbyists. And they are smart. They don’t shout that “We need a lot of battleships to war on this nation or that nation.” Oh no. First of all, they let it be known that America is menaced by a great naval power. Almost any day, these admirals will tell you, the great fleet of this supposed enemy will strike suddenly and annihilate 125,000,000 people. Just like that. Then they begin to cry for a larger navy. For what? To fight the enemy? Oh my, no. Oh, no. For defense purposes only.

    Then, incidentally, they announce maneuvers in the Pacific. For defense. Uh, huh.

    The Pacific is a great big ocean. We have a tremendous coastline on the Pacific. Will the maneuvers be off the coast, two or three hundred miles? Oh, no. The maneuvers will be two thousand, yes, perhaps even thirty-five hundred miles, off the coast.

  16. All secrets, whether they be bank deals, business confidentiality, government secrets, church cover ups etc are only secrets, because the public wouldn’t approve of them, the point of secrecy is to go behind the backs of the people. Anyone who breaks these secrets is uncovering conspiracies, policies, cover ups, that are behind the backs of the people, and that aren’t in their interest and they therefore should be considered heroes who have done an immense service in the interest of the majority of people.

  17. Industry secrets can be to protect competitive advantage.

    Government secrets can be to there for very legitimate military and other reasons.

    There are many legitimate reasons for secrets kept by individuals, businesses, governments.

  18. Phantom, Troll –

    Are you two completely out of your minds?

    You’ve just been told that the Pentagon is planning on war with China, and all you can do is mumble BS and platitudes?

    You’re like zombies.

  19. We are not planning war with anyone.

    We are preparing for any possible option.

    Not planning for anything, winging it, is a really bad strategy.

  20. The US military has plans for wars with most other countries it doesn’t mean a war is imminent. I’d be amazed if there haven’t been plans for a war with China for decades.

  21. Ross –

    Of course, but the Yale Journal piece claims –

    The Pentagon has concluded that the time has come to prepare for war with China, and in a manner well beyond crafting the sort of contingency plans that are expected for wide a range of possible confrontations. It is a momentous conclusion that will shape the United States’ defense systems, force posture, and overall strategy for dealing with the economically and militarily resurgent China. Thus far, however, the military’s assessment of and preparations for the threat posed by China have not received the high level of review from elected civilian officials that such developments require.

    I dunno. It might be some crazy kookiness, what with it being the Yale Journal. Then again, with war the permanent US condition now, with the neocon stranglehold over foreign and military affairs as strong as ever, with the influence and wealth of US Military Inc as great as ever, and with the long, proven history of Pentagon attempts to spark war to suit, there might just be something in it.

    US war with China would be ruinous for most except the special interests. Casualties would be massive. A pre-emptive attack against China is unthinkable for anyone with two brain cells and an ounce of common sense.

    The saddest thing is, the two Americans in here don’t react with horror at the idea, and it doesn’t surprise me at all. Some of them over there are on another planet. They’re touched by a kind of madness.

  22. Pete – can you see the irony here with Troll (the Great Patriot who demands war with anybody as long as it’s far away) berating anybody who doesn’t watch a 38-minute piece by Rush Limbaugh of the Establishment’s ‘right-wing’ whilst here he won’t even read the linked article at my post of 9.31pm of 30th July? And my link was introduced so as to make clear what it was about, and this is what it was about:

    The United States is preparing for a war with China, a momentous decision that so far has failed to receive a thorough review from elected officials, namely the White House and Congress. This important change in the United States’ posture toward China has largely been driven by the Pentagon

    I would consider that to be important, yet the warmongers just don’t want to know.

  23. Surely it would be military insanity to enter into any war (especially with China) while the US are tied up in Iraq & Afghanistan?

    It would be effectly fighting a war on three different fronts.

  24. Ah but Allan, Limbaugh is “The Master at Work”!

    I can only conclude from here that The Great Patriot is content to leave everything in the hands of his Washington masters. They know best, and all that. So much fro liberty and individualism and small government, but then it’s long been clear that type is full of wind.

    It’s the same over here. The two world wars each sparked social revolutions in Britain which were very damaging to conservatism. What do conservatives want when Washington calls? More war.

    An American once said that “war is the health of the state”. His meaning is clear, but conservatives and patriots on both sides of the Atlantic seem too thick to realise it.

  25. It’s ridiculous to claim that the US is preparing for a war with China…. they’ve got to get the forthcoming war with Iran over with first 😉

  26. I did not intend to return, but sometimes the temptation is just too much ..

    An American once said that “war is the health of the state”. His meaning is clear, but conservatives and patriots on both sides of the Atlantic seem too thick to realise it.

    Precisely Pete, and ‘thick’ as two short planks they are, and will remain, Allan has proven time and time and time again just how thick they really are .. let them get on with it i say, it’s more than amusing to me to watch it from afar.

    Thick as two short planks, or in plain English, drones !

    Happy days

    BYW, I happen to like and somehow admire Troll in many ways, he is a ‘blokes bloke’ in London speak, but it makes me sad and more than depressed to witness even how the likes of Troll have had the proverbial wool pulled over their eyes from the drones who masquarade as our ‘Peers’ and run what we and they describe as the State, now If I do not return for quite some considerable amount of time, no offence intended to anyone, but watching and reading the ramblings of some is (after being out of the fray for a while) made me realise just how ridiculous and futile it all is against the ‘State’ none of us are enemies in reallity, but we are all fighting the same foe, you know who that really is .. and so do I ?

  27. All good Pete .. thanks

    (Apart from the Gippos) who have camped out at the local beauty spot .. and have completely destroyed it beyond imagination, bless their little cotton socks.

    The Pikeys have destroyed the local beauty spot almost as much as Allan has destroyed most peoples perception on ATW on what they actually believed to be the ‘truth’ !

  28. Glad to see that you are still with us Harri – even if you are not with us so often on ATW. I often wonder why a regular may have dissapeared thinking it could be for heath reasons or worse, but of course its often mainly because people choose for various reasons not to engage here any more. As long as people are enjoying life elsewhere that’s fine.

  29. Thanks Colm

    It was for ‘health reasons’ to be honest

    It was because of Tarasov the UAF thug.

    Now if you want to get involved with a slanging match with a member of UAF, now that would, or could be a serious detriment to one’s health and that of your family (I have six kids and a wife to think of)

    You have been warned !

    UAF = Fascist bastards 😉

  30. BTW

    Allan has been called many names on here ‘Holocaust denier’ .. blah blah blah .. ZZzzzzzzzzzz, Yawnety yawn yawn .. but not once, not even for one single nano-second, has anyone even bothered to prove him wrong … not once.

    Shoot the messenger, that’s far easier.

  31. I think Petr is often a wind up merchant. The way he can with a straight face tell us that the likes of Castro and Che Guevara are great noble men and freedom fighters is pure Wolfie Smith style humour.

  32. With regards to Allan – he has never proved himself right. He just links to obscure like minded websites that parrot his views with their own so called ‘evidence’. Anyone can do that.

  33. Colm

    No, Allan links to sites you and others do not agree with, ( Some of them ‘official’)

    a big difference

  34. Colm, on July 31st, 2013 at 9:41 PM Said:
    I think Petr is often a wind up merchant.

    No, In my opinion he is an out and out weapons grade arsehole !

    Goodnight.

    Copy that Colm.
    I feel exactly the same way.

    I know you will only leave us when Allan has managed to get you to eat his Pizza delivery 😉

    Harri,
    Without wishing to re raise your blood pressure, evidence has been offered over and over again that the holocaust happened, and if YOU don’t want to believe that either, you place yourself as a denier of historical facts that are recorded and archived.
    No one has said that sis million Jews plus other minorities is an exact figure, but ask yourself this Harri,

    bearing in mind all the film and photographic evidence of the skeletal survivors and the piles of corpses that were once mothers, fathers, grandparents etc;
    where the HELL did they fund enough suitably emaciated ‘extras’ to play the crowd scenes in this con??

    Your mate Allan likes to argue that Agit8ed speaks from overwrought emotion rather than presenting reasoned and verifiable evidence, but there is PLENTY of evidence that it happened. He and presumably you, just don’t want to accept it.
    Sick.

  38. Agit

    Six Million people is the entire population of Slovakia

    How many bodies are in those photographic images?

    I do not ‘deny’ the event, I question the numbers

    I note that when Allan references ‘Web sites’ offical or otherwise .. they are nut job sites (official or not) when you linked to websites to back up your claims, that is acceptable.

    Peace to you my friend

  39. ” How many bodies are in those photographic images?”
    You’d have to consult the Nazi paperwork if it’s still available. But frankly Harri the worst thing is that there enough sick bast****s who would actually want to count those bodies just to prove there wasn’t six million.
    Never mind they were rummaging through people stripped of their life and dignity, they are simply statistiken, Mein Herr

    Just like Cambodia people are wiped out simply because the State says they must. The difference is of course that Hitler attempted to wipe out the Jews because they were Jews.
    The Cambodian victims didn’t fit the philosophical and economic model. Same as Red China, but no one talks about that now because Capitalist China is too big and too powerful to criticise…

  40. Agit

    The ” just asking questions ” like similar questions from 9/11 Truthers, is made in the utmost bad faith 99% of the time.

    Hi from NY

  41. Harri

    Allan has been called many names on here ‘Holocaust denier’ .. blah blah blah .. ZZzzzzzzzzzz, Yawnety yawn yawn .. but not once, not even for one single nano-second, has anyone even bothered to prove him wrong … not once.

    Why would anyone bother. The Holocaust happened. You would have to be some sort of nut-case to believe it didn’t.
    I was unsure if he was a denier up until a few days ago when I asked him. I was going to reply with a true story about my partner who once looked after an elderly gentlemen who saw first hand one of the camps at the end of the war and heard first hand about the horrors that went on there. But I though, what’s the point, he wouldn’t listen anyway.

  42. Phantom,
    “Hi from NY”
    You can stop now.
    Nobody’s chasing you.
    Doncha have a website or something where we can see pictures of these glorious places you go to?
    As long as you don’t spoil them by actually being in the shot, they would be very interesting to an old Englishman who thinks London is noisy, dirty and crowded..

  43. Nothing too glamourous, amigo, but maybe I’ll send something from sunny Wayne Pa or downtown NYC soon.

    I’ve been keeping the railroads busy the past few days.

  44. ” I was unsure if he was a denier up until a few days ago when I asked him.

But I though, what’s the point, he wouldn’t listen anyway.”

    I worked in Colindale, London many years ago in a day centre for the elderly. There were a lot of old Jewish gentlemen who attended it and naturally I struck up friendships with most of them. I think nearly all had lost family members in concentration camps across Europe.
    There again, they might have been pulling my leg.

    I think you should try talking to Allan, Dave.
    *************************************

    I think he likes you…
    😉

    I thought you were a bit taken aback the other day by Allan’s response, but I think you should try

  45. Agit.

    I think I’ll just leave it with Allan liking me. Trying to convince a conspiracy theorist of the undisputable facts is about as productive as trying to teach a cat to play chess.
