Yesterday, Barack Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security delivered what should be the “kiss of death” to the ambitions of a prospective successor, Rep. Michael McCaul. Jeh Johnson is, after all, the poster-child of official willful blindness towards Islamic supremacism. A Trump administration must not perpetuate such malfeasance.
Secretary Johnson thinks so highly of the chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee because McCaul has repeatedly supported Team Obama’s Islamist-dictated and -enabling “Countering Violent Extremism” program. The Congressman even inscribed a photograph he took with leaders of the Council on American Islamic Relations, extolling them as “moderate Muslims” and “our secret weapon.” In fact, CAIR is Hamas.
Candidate Donald Trump promised to counter the anti-constitutional Sharia ideology aggressively promoted by Muslim Brotherhood fronts like CAIR. That will require like-minded subordinates, not those willfully blind like Jeh Johnson and Michael McCaul.
