The Congressional Black Caucus (Motto: No Conservative Blacks or Whites Representing Majority Black Districts Allowed) have proposed pre-eminent House Negro, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.
The cabinet-level position is being vacated this fall by the ever-incompetent Janet Napolitano, who demonstrated her ability to always do what she’s told to advance the Left’s wet dream of destroying America and has therefore been rewarded with a cushy position as president of the University of California.

As a replacement, Jackson Lee would bring the same level of incompetence and immorality that Napolitano brought, but with the added bonus of being BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK. The following is just a sampling of her behavior since coming to Congress in 1995:
Feb 13, 2013: “I stand here as a freed slave because this Congress came together.”
Jackson Lee has a B.A. in political science from Yale no less, plus a law degree from the University of Virginia. You’d think between the two, she might have gotten a clue that black people stopped being legally defined as property many, many, many years before she was born and that it was due to the efforts of Republican presidents and Republican congresses that they have all the rights they’ve got.
July 15, 2010 to Congress: “Today we have two Vietnams, side by side, North and South, exchanging and working.”
Jackson Lee is a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and there is no North and South Vietnam anymore, only the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
July 15, 2010 to Congress: Bemoaning the loss of American lives in Vietnam, because “the leadership of this nation did not listen to the mothers and fathers who borned the burden of 58,000 dead.”
No doubt she means the Republican Nixon, who inherited the mess in Vietnam from the Democrat Kennedy-Johnson administrations. I can’t speak to how Gold Star moms and dads “borned” their burden. Is that Ebonics or just bad English … but I repeat myself.
Also in July 2010, Jackson Lee announced at the NAACP convention, amidst cheers, that Tea Partiers are nothing more than Ku Klux Klan members without their robes.
The KKK was founded by and filled with Democrats. Tea Partiers predominantly self-identify as either Republican or Independent.
February 2007: Jackson Lee ignored the Bush administration’s policy toward Chavez’ anti-American Socialist rule of Venezuela and traveled there as a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, which paid for the trip.
Venezuela supplies about 11 percent of America’s oil imports. Despite Chavez’ declared intention to take a majority stake of U.S.-run oil operations in the country, Jackson Lee declared he had many friends in the “new Congress”, referring to the take-over of the House and Senate in January 2007 by a Democrat majority that was openly hostile to the Bush administration.
Jackson Lee has also urged the U.S. to sell F-16 fighter jets and spare parts to Venezuela, which has close relations with Iran and Cuba.
Jackson Lee sits on the House Committee on Homeland Security and on the Subcommittees on Border, Maritime, and Global Counter terrorism, Transportation Security and Infrastructure Protection, Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security, and Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law.
2005: On a visit to the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Jackson Lee asked if the Mars Pathfinder had photographed the American flag Neil Armstrong planted in 1969. Reportedly, the embarrassed guide replied simply that this had not been possible, since that flag is on the Moon while the Mars Pathfinder was on Mars.
Jackson Lee has been the Democrat representative for Houston, where NASA is based, since 1995. At the time of this faux pas, she was also serving on the House Science Committee.
