Itâ€™s a terrifying thought but Sheila Jackson-Lee, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee was actually reportedly under consideration to replace Janet Napolitano to head DHS. She was recommended by the Congressional BlackÂ CaucusÂ before the nod went in favor of Obama bagman Jeh Johnson. Then again, maybe having an incompetent buffoon would have been preferable to the highly effective subversive, anti-American agent who now holds the position.
Jackson-Lee seems to get a kick out of referring to â€œmartial law,â€ a parliamentary procedure with a name that is guaranteed to get her coverage in the media. Sheâ€™s not speaking in terms of the storm trooper, jackboots we envision when we first hear it, at least not yet.
She talks of two points in the first video, â€œProtecting the Childrenâ€ and â€œProviding the Full Resources for Helping the Children.â€
It is amazing that the United States and our Congressional bodies have gone from institutions guaranteeing the enforcement of the Constitution of the United States for the benefit of our citizens to welfare organizations for the poor of the world. When did the United States turn into UNICEF?
That we the people would tolerate such a treasonous transformation by DHS in the remote stretches of border desert is bad enough. That it is an admitted political position and the foundation by many for their positions in a debate is disgraceful.
Jackson-Lee is asking Americans to provide what she describes as full resources. That means unlimited funding. With our debt and dependence on borrowed or manufactured money to finance our government, restraint and American interests, not unlimited whimsical socialist spending should be the basis upon which our fiscal decisions are made.
Ms. Jackson-Lee loves Martial Law. In the tradition of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, it permits a vote on laws that nobody has read and provides the associated plausible deniability that responsibility-dodging Democrats covet.
â€œUnder thisÂ procedure, longstanding House rules that require at least one day between the unveiling of significant legislation and the House floor vote on that legislation are swept away.Â Instead, under â€œmartial law,â€ the Leadership can file legislation with hundreds of pages of fine print and move immediately to debate and votes on it, before Members of Congress, the media, or the public have an opportunity to understand fully what provisions have been altered or inserted in the legislation behind closed doors.â€
Sheâ€™s used this hot button technique before, as the video below illustrates.
