Jeh Charles Johnson is a traitor.

Jeh Charles Johnson is the current United States Secretary of Homeland Security.

Jeh Johnson knows the way to success in the Hussein Obama regime is through direct disservice and disloyalty to your nation.

Jeh Johnson has been the chief architect of our southern border disarmament, who oversaw the dismantling of our inland and border immigration enforcement, the man who ordered criminal illegal aliens released onto our streets, the man who on the day of the Obama amnesty speech ordered ICE agents to violate their oaths of office just as he himself does on a daily basis and to not arrest law-breakers unless they committed violent felonies.

No doubt the patriotic employees at DHS would be thrilled and relieved to be rid of the unscrupulous rogue in charge of one of the most integrity-demanding positions in our government. The exception is the Obama regime, in which integrity is considered to be a character defect.

The Washington Post cites Johnson’s experience as the Pentagon’s top lawyer from 2009 to 2012, which reportedly included a role in the decisions to expand drone warfare, the debate over closing Gitmo, and our approach to cyber-warfare. He also played a prominent role in the repeal of “don’t ask don’t tell.” While those might, in the opinion of some be qualifications, they are hardly a replacement for military experience and do not begin to compensate for assaulting our Constitution.

While former Defense Secretary Robert Gates spoke highly of Johnson in his book “Duty,” his actions as DHS Secretary have been extremely destructive to our nation, the rule of law and the Constitution he supposedly swore an oath to uphold.

Jeh Johnson was also instrumental in the importation program of Central American illegal aliens and helped craft the current un-Constitutional amnesty, knowingly violating the separation of powers in doing so. He has also been deceptive when questioned on any particulars of any of his subversive activities, parsing words and restating questions in a manner so as to avoid being forthcoming.

Jeh Johnson is a man who should be at a minimum under indictment for treason, not head of a one of most sensitive positions within the United States government.

Additional Information

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told the Senate Tuesday (April 28, 2015) that he has no regrets at all for going around Congress to implement President Barack Obama’s several immigration-related executive actions. “Do you regret the actions that you and the administration have taken that have gotten us to this point?” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) asked Johnson at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. “No, I do not, senator,” Johnson replied. “I believe that the undocumented population in this country, at least half of which has been here more than 10 years, has to be reckoned with. We know they’re here, and they are not priorities for removal.”

There are millions of people in this country who are not priorities for removal,” he added. “There are dozens of states that allow them to have drivers’ licenses.”

Obama’s latest plan to provide legal protection for millions of illegal immigrants is currently on hold, due to a federal court injunction. But DHS took steps to get ready for that plan, and is lobbying the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to lift that injunction.

Jeh Johnson also justified Obama’s immigration action by noting that Obama waited “years” for Congress to act. That prompted Cornyn to ask, “So do you think it’s an excuse for the president to act unconstitutionally because Congress doesn’t act quickly enough to suit him?”

“I have what is in my judgment as a lawyer a very, very thoughtful opinion from the Office of Legal Counsel that we have the legal discretion to do what we did,” Johnson replied.

Jeh Johnson spent a good part of Tuesday’d hearing fight back against Republican complaints that Obama’s immigration moves violated the Constitution. He also heard complaints from Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) that DHS’s effort to enforce immigration laws has waned.

Cruz, for example, noted that the removal of illegal immigrants has dropped dramatically over the last several years. “How do you explain a 41 percent drop in removals of aliens here illegally?” he asked.

Jeh Johnson replied that removals have fallen because fewer people are being captured at the border. “The apprehensions are in fact lower on the southern border, so the intake is lower this fiscal year in particular,” he said.

DHS announced last week that border apprehensions are down 28 percent this year. This is a clear sign that DHS is becoming even more relaxed about its effort to enforce immigration law.

Janet Napolitano

Janet Napolitano is a traitor.

Janet Napolitano is a traitor.

Janet Napolitano is a traitor.

Janet Napolitano as Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary allowed the publication of a guide to terrorism that identified american war veterans, anti-abortion activists and constitutionalists as potential terrorists. She made the term “man-caused disaster” synonymous with government stupidity.

According a Gallup Poll, a full 62 per cent of the American people believe that stopping illegal immigration should be a top priority of the U.S. government. Unfortunately for the American people, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano is not numbered among that 62%. And she is the person who is supposed to be enforcing the law. Last year, Napolitano opened the floodgates of illegal immigration by having the Department of Homeland Security review all cases then before the immigration courts with an eye towards halting the deportation of many illegal immigrants allegedly with no criminal backgrounds. (JW uncovered records demonstrating this to be an utter lie. Many of the illegals let off the hook were convicted of violent crimes.)

Not satisfied with skirting the law in 2011, Napolitano decided to abandon it altogether in 2012. Accordingly, on June 15, 2012, she announced: “By this memorandum, I am setting forth how, in the exercise of our prosecutorial discretion, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) should enforce the Nation’s immigration laws against certain young people who were brought to this country as children and know only this country as home.”

In short, this amounted to blanket “temporary” amnesty for illegals under the age of 30. With her single statement, she simply declared upwards of one million illegal aliens entirely legal. Just like that. No legislation. No debate. No votes. No court rulings. The Constitution of the United States notwithstanding. And, in so doing, she violated the Oath of Office she had taken when sworn in as secretary of Homeland Security on January 21, 2009: “I, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

UPDATE: July 12, 2013

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, one of the president Obama’s original cabinet appointees, announced her resignation Friday (July 12, 2013) morning, having been nominated to serve as president of the University of California system.

Meanwhile, we can look at her tenure as DHS secretary and breathe a sigh of relief that her incompetence and stupidity didn’t lead to a major terrorist attack. You rarely see anyone ignore the facts in front of their face so assiduously in order to hew to a politically correct line about Islam and terrorism.

Janet Napolitano is just one more “Progressive Socialist” (Communist) leaving the Obama sinking ship. Some of us might feel sorry for California, but a much larger majority of us say good riddance to this traitor.

UPDATE: January 14, 2014

Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2013.

Former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano:

In August 2013 Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano stepped down from her post expressing both “pride and regret” – the regret stemming from her failure to help push through the so-called Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. The truth is, however, that Napolitano actually played a major role in doing an end run around existing immigration law by helping President Obama implement his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) directive in lieu of DREAM Act passage.

Documents obtained by Judicial Watch in June 2013 revealed that Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) abandoned required background checks in 2012, adopting, instead, costly “lean and lite” procedures in effort to keep up with the flood of amnesty applications resulting from the DACA directive.

The documents also revealed that, contrary to Napolitano’s claim that DACA applied only to minors who came to this country illegally “through no fault of their own,” the directive actually created a new avenue of chain migration, whereby immediate relatives of DACA requesters could be approved for amnesty. As a result, according to an agency memo from District 15 Director David Douglas, “some of the districts closer to the U.S./Mexico border have been inundated.”

The Obama/Napolitano stealth amnesty policy received a setback in July 2013 when the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas left DACA hanging by a string as he dismissed a challenge strictly due to jurisdictional issues. While the court determined that it did not have authority to hear the case, Judge Reed O’Connor agreed that program is likely unconstitutional, saying, “[T]he Court finds that Plaintiffs are likely to succeed on the merits of their claim challenging the Directive and Morton Memorandum as contrary to the provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act.”

In an earlier ruling handed down in April, Judge O’Connor stated clearly that, “DHS does not have discretion to refuse to initiate removal proceedings when the requirements of Section 1225(b)(2)(A) are satisfied.” That section requires the agents to place aliens who are not “clearly and beyond a doubt entitled to be admitted” to the United States into removal proceedings.

DHS malfeasance did not stop there. And, in fact, according to a court order filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on December 13, DHS has actually enabled cartel trafficking of minors, delivering those minors to illegals living inside the United States and completing criminal transactions for illegal immigrants. The court document details a guilty plea from Mirtha Veronica Nava-Martinez for being paid to smuggle a 10-year-old El Salvadoran female into the United States. Nava-Martinez was hired by Patricia Elizabeth Salmeron Santos, the mother of the 10-year-old, who was living illegally in Virginia after being denied legal entry into the U.S. in 2001. According to U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen who wrote the court order: “The DHS officials were notified that Salmeron-Santos instigated this illegal conduct. Yet, instead of arresting Salmeron-Santos for instigating the conspiracy to violate our border security laws, the DHS delivers the child to her – thus successfully completing the mission of the criminal conspiracy. It did not arrest her. It did not prosecute her. It did not even initiate deportation proceedings for her. This DHS policy is a dangerous course of action.”

Napolitano’s legacy is one that has gutted, for political reasons, the very immigration laws she swore to uphold.
