The Job of Homeland Security
Chiquita is at the Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Wednesday, March 4, 2015. Our noisy friend, Chiquita Cicada, is here with me at the breakfast table. Chiquita heard Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, describe the responsibilities of Homeland Security, and now she has a splitting headache. Please join us for breakfast this morning. Chiquita is preparing ham and cheese omelettes. I am mixing up a batch of Bloody Marys. We look forward to the pleasure of your company. Please bring some aspirins for Chiquita.
A Job Description
Thank you all for joining Chiquita and me this morning. Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson, believes that part of his role as Secretary is to "give voice to the plight of Muslims." He is talking about Muslims living in this country and he is terribly concerned about the discrimination they face. Frankly, I am confused. I thought the job of Homeland Security was to keep Americans safe from Islamic terrorists who are growing into a formidable army of assassins. It never occurred to me that Muslims living in America were in need of special protection. Tell me, please, who is threatening them? If Muslims living in America are experiencing problems, that is the responsibility of law enforcement. Homeland Security should be worried about who is walking into our country through borders that President Obama is determined to leave porous. Secretary Johnson believes it is his job to promote Islam as a religion of peace and brotherhood. I don't know who wrote his job description, but it is flat out wrong. That is not his job! If Secretary Johnson feels that promoting Islam is his responsibility, it is time for him to go, and it can't be soon enough. Just say good-bye. .
This is America
Perhaps Secretary Johnson and President Obama need to be reminded that this is America. We are not a Muslim country, and I pray we never become one. I am not sure how this administration feels about that, but I will take a stab in the dark and say Americans want to remain American. I will also venture a guess that Americans are more concerned about the plight of all Americans during these hideous and trying times. If Muslims are uncomfortable with the fact that Islamic radical extremists are trying to kill Americans, they have to make their concerns known and raise their collective voices in protest. Unless I am completely out of the loop, I have not heard of cases of Americans attacking American Muslims. Homeland Security had better focus on the real problems and forget about the phony issues that really are none of their concern. If Secretary Johnson wants to promote Islam, perhaps he should go to Imam school.
Homeland Security is charged with preventing terrorism and enhancing security. They are supposed to manage our borders. Thanks to President Obama they have managed to keep our borders open to anyone who wants to come in, terrorists included. They are supposed to enforce and administer our immigration laws. I would be laughing now, if this wasn't so serious. They are further charged with safeguarding and securing cyberspace. Thus far, it seems to me that the terrorists are having a grand old time using the internet to their advantage, without interference. Lastly, Homeland Security is supposed to ensure resilience to disaster. I pray we never have to test them on this score, because my gut tells me they are not up to the job. Nowhere did I read that Homeland Security was charged with promoting Islam as a peaceful religion. Nowhere did I see that Homeland Security is charged with giving a voice to the plight of Muslims. This administration and all those they appoint have it all wrong. It is time for Americans to tell the fools in Congress that we have had it with them and the fools in the administration. I do not want to pay the salaries of the Jeh Johnsons in this nation.. Do You?
I'm Chiquita Cicada and I'm here to say,
I wish this Secretary would just go away!
