Michael Chertoff as Attorney General?

On 9/11, the United States suffered its worst terrorist attack in the history of the Republic.  Burning World Trade Center towers featured black smoke, people jumping out of windows — and ultimately, magnificent skyscrapers collapsing like water falling over the edge of Niagara Falls.

Meanwhile, President Bush read a children's story to an elementary classroom for eight minutes after being told that two commercial jets ran into the WTC towers.

9/11 reverberates, and Americans wonder

Cogent arguments based on investigations by serious Americans projected an inside job.  

  • Did the president of the U.S. know about 9/11, like Franklin D. Roosevelt knew about Pearl Harbor ?  
  • Why didn't the CIA splice the pieces together long before the event?  
  • What subliminal message did our leaders ignore when Muslims in U.S. flight schools learned how to fly commercial jets with no interest in the skills of take offs and landings?
  • What about demolition explosives purported in the third building that collapsed, but was not hit by airplanes?  
  • How could so many Muslims from dangerous countries be given visas so nonchalantly?
  • Was CIA chief George Tenant playing Foosball with Joey on "Friends" every day while pretending to protect our country?
Alberto Gonzales served Bush-43 as a loyal soldier

Fast forward: Alberto Gonzales achieved the highest lawyer status in the nation with his appointment as U.S. attorney general.  

During his term, by his own incompetence and disarray, the rule of law in America degraded.  

Only token prosecutions resulted for employers of illegal aliens — which encouraged more lawbreaking nationwide.  Top federal attorneys either quit or suffered firings.

Johnny Sutton, another loyal soldier

Meanwhile, Gonzales's lackey in Texas, Johnny Sutton, prosecuted U.S. Border Patrol officers Ramos and Campeon for shooting a drug smuggler in the butt.  A judge gave those men, who upheld the law and protected American citizens, 12 year prison terms.

Scooter Libby, another loyal soldier

Back in the saddle in Washington, DC, Scooter Libby, a convicted felon, received commutation of his crime without jail time. In other words, our laws couldn't touch the privileged and powerful.

Gonzales too

Further incredulity: Gonzales fired eight federal attorneys without cause.  Gonzales proved SO bad an attorney general that he faced "impeachment" for his inability or sheer corruption – to operate competently at that level.  Senators called for his resignation.  This week, he vanished like a snowflake in Tucson, Arizona in July!

Michael Chertoff; DHS includes FEMA, ICE, USCIS, and C&BP

Back-step: A man named Michael Chertoff, who carries dual citizenship as a citizen of Israel first and the United States second — took over from Thomas Ridge as the chief of Homeland Security.

  • Under Chertoff, millions of illegal aliens continued overrunning U.S. borders despite and since 9/11.  
  • Drugs flooded into the United States unimpeded by the Border Patrol which is undermanned and understaffed.  
  • Ten percent of those illegals consist of sex offenders, felons and drug runners – to include MS-13 gang members.  
  • Thousands of U.S. citizens have died at the hands of illegal aliens, every year.  
  • Chertoff conducted token raids on meat packing plants in 2006.  No employers suffered prosecution of any kind – not one went to jail.  Smoke-and-mirrors.
FEMA reported to Chertoff the day Hurricane Katrina came ashore

Two years ago: Hurricane Katrina wreaked havoc on the Gulf Coast.  It caught Chertoff with his pants around his ankles.  We witnessed a Chinese-fire-drill.  Under director Mike Brown, in concert with Chertoff, FEMA moved millions of dollars of packed ice around in 18-wheelers for months after the hurricane as reported by Brian Williams at NBC.  Incompetence set a new benchmark for "The Peter Principle."

Today, Michael Chertoff's name floats around inside the Beltway as the attorney general nominee – to take Gonzales' place. Talk about collusion of incompetence! To top it off, Chertoff recently stated that new terrorist attacks remain imminent in the United States.   Duh!  The man predicts exactly what he enables.  With wide open borders for the past six years, this is a given!

Am I living in a nightmare or am I dreaming this stuff up?

How could a man who sports Israeli citizenship and passport make his way to the top echelon of American power?  That's like Michael Vick operating a dog fighting kennel and running for the president of the Humane Society!  How could Chertoff be promoted after demonstrating gross incompetence?

Our borders remain wide-open today

Does anyone realize that since the fatally-flawed S.1639 failed in June, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens crossed our borders to come here?    Any number of the illegal aliens could be terrorists?  How do I know?  I've spent weeks on the southern border, from Texas to California.  It's an open playground for anyone who wants to cross.  Our undermanned and demoralized Border Patrol interdicts 17% of those who attempt the crossing; 83% succeed on their first attempt.  

Who is now in-charge of our border security?  Michael Chertoff.

Does anyone realize that the president of the United States hires incompetent people?  Does he do it on purpose?  What motivates Bush's decisions against our country's security?  Why?

A mother of a U.S. Army trooper said last week, "Why am I going to my son's funeral and Bush is going to his daughter's wedding?"
