Thanks for the Memories
nicknamed Big Sis by the Drudge Report for her Orwellian incursions into US
liberties, is stepping down as Head Pain Mistress of our “Slavery is Freedom” Department
of Homeland Security – DeHoSec, as it were, to indulge the appropriate Newspeak
efficiency. She’s leaving to take a
position as High Schoolmarm of the University of California system, an “Ignorance
is Strength” outfit in its own Orwellian right. She will go from being SecDeHoSec [DeHo, to
make the Newspeak even more efficient by removing the redundancies] to HiCal. So to speak.
holds that there is some conspiratorial pretext for her resignation coming out
of phase with the Cabinet turnover that usually accompanies a presidential
re-election, and the scandal sheets are all a-twitter over it. It cannot simply be the $750K salary she will
receive. Among the explanations given by
the conspiracy theorists for her oddly-timed departure are:
fallout over DeHoSec’s ammo buying spree.
In the wake of three notorious mass shootings in recent years, idiot
liberals attempted to make Constitutional hay while the sun shone on popular
paranoias. The most recent form this
took was for DeHoSec to buy up as much ammunition as it could in states where
there was a reasonable likelihood of the state passing laws which would outlaw
guns and/or magazine sizes and/or specific types of ammunition. The thinking [sic] being: why wait on the
State Legislature to infringe the 2ndAM?
Do it now. …because god knows,
the federal government has all the money it needs to spend on such things.
on our nation’s disastrous immigration policies, and even more notorious non-enforcement
of them. On the one hand, she was very
correct, when Governess of Arizona, that a 50-foot wall would be met with a
51-foot ladder – that’s just the nature of the game. But when she, as head securer of our border
security, willfully refuses to comply with federal immigration laws in a fit of
PMS because state and local authorities in her ex-state of Arizona show up her
DeHoSec time and again by doing what federal law already authorizes them to do, regardless what Arizona’s laws say,
that goes beyond incompetence and enters the region of criminal malfeasance. …which would put her in good company among
our National Savior’s Cabinet … but still.
resentment over her blue-shirted Brownshirts at TSA. In an apparent attempt to assuage our nation’s
Great Disquiet over TSA’s arbitrary and – frankly – psychotic rules on what can
and cannot be brought aboard airplanes, and the indignations one has to endure
to get there, DeHo announced a relaxation of those rules … to test the waters …
to see what would shake out among the public.
So were the pointless exercises of removing shoes and pitching coffee
cups discontinued? Was the creepy porno-scope turned off? Did they finally
realize that their fears over snow globes and cupcakes-in-a-can made them look
like laughable amateur charlatans among legitimate security operations?
all. They allowed knives and boxcutters
to be taken on board, the very weapons which made 9/11 possible in the first
place. Instead of discontinuing those
rules which do not, cannot and never would be useful, and periodically adding
in new relaxations as the paranoid public lost their irrational fears, they
started with step 16 – allowing actual weapons, however trivial. This, in a population made paranoid by the psychotic
rantings of both the Bush and Obama Administrations over American passenger
planes. It was doomed to fail, and I
believe they knew it. And because it did fail – Americans made paranoid by
twelve years of fear-mongering US government propaganda hit the roof – the government
now has all the justification it needs to continue imposing new and more
diabolical nazisms at our airports in the name of security that such rules do
not, cannot and never will acquire.
blossoming of DeHoSec’s infamous report listing the security concerns of the
United States, and having not one of the concerns being the islamists which
made so many attacks against the US – before and after 9/11. Instead,
their report cited Libertarians, the Tea Party, ex-military, social
conservatives, fiscal conservatives, anti-abortion activists, those who
complain about illegal immigration … essentially, anyone who is not a
registered Democrat. They are all more
worrisome to the future security of her United States than dozens of groups of
islamists, which together total millions, who have declared war – and have waged
that war for decades – on it.
DeHo’s curriculum vitae is quite an impressive history
of political cynicism, graft, fraud, shystery, deceit and plain old
manipulation, and it’s unfair to judge her based solely on her tenure as DeHo at
DeHoSec. For example, she gained
prominence as a loyyer during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings by representing
a witness for Anita Hill, who famously alleged Thomas was a bounder and a cad –
which he likely is if only because almost everyone in his position is, but it’s
irrelevant to being a Supreme Court Justice.
This witness, in pre-hearing investigation, promised to confirm these
allegations before the Senate, but when under oath could not. DeHo pulled her witness for further consultation,
and when retaking the hotseat later, the client gave a story about sudden-onset
ballsy performance, she was promoted to Attorney General of Arizona, where she
made the state safe from office place Christmas decorations.
this success, the future DeHo was elected Governess, and spearheaded a move to
rid her state of any electoral influence from one of the two political groups her
brand of left-wing lunacy abhors: middle-of-the-road independents. It would only be later on, in her position as
DeHo, when she would be in a position to label everyone not a registered Democrat
as terrorists more dangerous to America than the actual terrorists who are
waging actual war on the US.
course, there is a further conspiracy theory regarding her oddly-timed
departure from DeHoSec: something so vile and sinister, and still unknown to
the general public, that it would put all her previous political crimes and misdemeanors
many of DeHo’s critics are refusing to speculate on reasons for her departure,
and are simply lamenting her arrival in California as HiCal. She will surely be as despotic and partisan as
a college Mother Superior as she was in her previous positions, and the fact that
she will be able to impose her loathsome views on tens of thousands of young
minds all at once makes many cringe in fear for the future of America.
Most of the
young minds she’d be polluting, though, are already done polluted having been
steeped in the poison from birth, but she might just serve to inspire those high
school graduates not already in goosestep with her nazist views to seek higher
education elsewhere – where they might not have to endure as much institutional
bigotry as they would at, for example, UC Berkeley. It was Berkeley, we must remember, that
served as the cradle for the hyper-liberal’s infant Free Speech movement … made
possible by silencing, forcibly, if necessary, anyone who disagreed with them.
those pre-polluted young minds, armed with UC-whatever sheepskins and student
loans out their asses, will be looking for jobs upon graduating. Unless they’re going to stay in California
where the Big Ideas® their illiberal
education got them will be rewarded, they’ll find it tough going. Which serves them right.
find it tough going in California, which has shown itself over the last several
decades to be unfriendly to any type of labor not involved with the
self-congratulatory entertainment industry, or technologically infeasible “green”
nitwits will come to learn that idealistic demagoguery won’t repay their
student loans, and that they wasted their time, effort and money – not to
mention their integrity – on political quackery. …although it must be said that they will only
understand about their integrity after they turn 40. And it’s these people who will lead the
masses away from the self-indulgent myopia of liberal sentimentalism. …if we are going to survive long enough to
For in the
long-run, every system, be it physical, mechanical or political, sets the stage
for its own self-destruction. And DeHo
Janet Napolitano – and the countless others who share her strident political psychoses
– are setting up their own demise, just by being their intolerant, ignorant selves.
I wish her
well in this new undertaking.
