To me, the most important question in deciding for whom to vote for President in 2008 is: Who is the toughest on Islamic terrorism? Who is the least PC on this issue? Who is not afraid to do–and say–the right thing to protect America? Who will call out Islamists on our shores? And who will kiss their rears?
In the past, only Rudy Giuliani has proven to be tough on terrorists and their supporters. As I’ve written, he forced Yasser Arafat to leave a concert in New York. After 9/11, he also told Saudi Prince, gazillionaire, and FOX News key investor Prince AlWaleed Bin Talal where to go and told him to take his $10 million check and shove it, when the Prince suggested giving in to the terrorists and changing U.S. policy.
But, now, something else has come up that’s troubling. And that’s the possible identity of the new Secretary of Homeland Security under a new administration.
Last week, on a little-listened to radio show, Giuliani told the arrogant pseudo-conservative host whose name will never be mentioned on this site that he has the utmost confidence in Michael “Serpenthead” Chertoff, the current Homeland Security chief. He lauded Chertoff endlessly and said that Chertoff had been his deputy as U.S. Attorney in New York.
That’s bad news–very disturbing. Would Giuliani re-appoint Chertoff to head up DHS (along with his gang of incompetent cronies, like The ICE Princess)? Who knows? Would Giuliani appoint Chertoff to some other important national security role in a Giuliani Administration? Giuliani must be pressed on this issue because we cannot afford to have the incompetent, politically correct (to extremist Muslims) Chertoff in any position in any future administration. He’s been a complete failure. And it’s disturbing, given this track record, to hear Giuliani endorse Mr. “Gut Feeling’s” atrocious performance.
Then, there is Hillary Cankles Clinton–for whom I would NEVER EVER vote. She is very good friends with New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, who would likely be among Hillary’s top choices to head up DHS. Legacy-Customs agents in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have mixed reviews of Kelly’s performance when he ran the then-U.S. Customs Service, a job he got because of his tight friendship with Hillary Clinton.
One former Special Agent in Charge, whom I trust a great deal, told me Kelly’s chief priority was not law enforcement and stopping money laundering and smuggling of goods into America. He said Kelly’s chief priority and objective in Customs was the affirmative action hiring and promotion of minorities, many of whom were not competent because they were not hired or promoted based on qualifications and experience. The former Customs Agent tells me that Kelly was terrible and helped destroy Customs.
And Kelly is friends with dangerous Islamo-pandering ICE officials like Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz,” the ICE Special Agent in Charge over Michigan and Ohio. Abu Moskowitz, a former New York City cop, brown-nosed Kelly. And Kelly, in turn, repeatedly promoted and groomed Abu M (selecting him for the prestigious Customs Leadership Institute), getting him to the position where he is today. Under a Kelly DHS, Moskowitz–who panders to known Islamic terrorists and agents of the Government of Iran and refuses to investigate their illicit activity–might be as protected and unduly promoted as Julie L. Myers a/k/a “The ICE Princess” was and is. NOT a good thing.
On the other hand, as head of New York’s police, Kelly has been doing a great job getting and stopping Islamic terrorists. The NYPD has done such a great job stopping Islamic terrorists in New York, the FBI is angry and jealous. (That includes NYPD counter-terrorism personnel embedded in Israel, to which the FBI strenuously objects.) Most big terrorism suspects thwarted in New York recently have been stopped by NYPD undercover operatives and informants, not those from the FBI. While Kelly has achieved a lot in the fight against terrorism in NYC, he’s hugged and kissed a lot of extremist Muslims in photo ops, in the process. Not a good thing.
I’d love to hear more from ICE agents who’ve worked for Kelly. Please post your comments in this entry and/or e-mail me, and let me know what you think of him.
So, it will be interesting to see who will be among the DHS (and FBI and USDOJ) top personnel picks for the prospective and eventual nominees for President. I’ll be watching closely. And you should be, too.
There is a reason why Al-Qaeda is now, according to government reports, at pre-9/11 strength. We’ve had a series of incompetents running the FBI, Homeland Security and important sub-agencies, like ICE and Citizenship and Immigration Services. They’ve done nothing to stop terrorists from entering the U.S. . . . and everything to welcome them to our shores, unfettered.
That must change in the next administration if America has any hope of long-term survival and and any significant national security.
