Obama to Nominate Jeh Johnson for Homeland Security

President Barack Obama will nominate former top Defense Department lawyer Jeh Johnson on Friday to be the next secretary of Homeland Security, replacing Janet Napolitano, according to a senior administration official.

The administration is touting Johnson as a “critical member of the president’s counterterrorism team” and a trusted adviser, who assisted in a report that helped lead to the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in 2010 and worked on the legal overlap and coordination with the Department of Homeland Security and the Defense Department during disaster responses.

The post’s sprawling jurisdiction, particularly over the politically charged area of enforcement of immigration laws, is sure to make for interesting hearings in the Senate.

    Americans need to remember that Hussein Obama’s criminal regime left four Americans to die in Benghazi and viciously tried to deny health care to ten year old Sarah Murnaghan.

    The same lawyer who gave Obama the “go ahead” to kill citizens with drones.
    The same lawyer who gave Obama the “go ahead” to invade Libya.

    Outstanding choice. (smh)

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
