Quickies: What Is It About Email?

     This morning, the Department of Homeland Security is looking not so secure:

     Judicial Watch today announced it obtained 693 pages of Department of Homeland Security records revealing that Secretary Jeh Johnson and 28 other agency officials used government computers to access personal web-based email accounts despite an agency-wide ban due to heightened security concerns. The documents also reveal that Homeland Security officials misled Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) when Perry specifically asked whether personal accounts were being used for official government business.

     The records were obtained in response to a February 2016 court order by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia following a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Homeland Security (No. 1:15-cv-01772)).

     Not only did various DHSers break their own security rules, its executives lied to Congress about it. I’m torn between keelhauling them one by one – lengthwise along the keel of one of our aircraft carriers, of course – or staking the lot of them out on desert anthills, with specially imported fire ants, extra buzzards, and full media coverage of their demises. The side betting would be fascinating.

     The Obama Administration is, from top to bottom, a clown show composed entirely of felonious clowns. Worse, the clowns don’t even have enough sense to conceal their own wrongdoing. At this point, it would surprise me to learn that ISIS, al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, Tehran, Pyongyang, the Kremlin, Beijing, or anyone else who wishes us ill lacks full access to and knowledge of American security secrets...and of course one must wonder whether that was the end in view.

     Misconduct of this sort would have gotten a private citizen with a security clearance five to ten years in a federal prison. As for what will become of Jeh Johnson, or Hillary Clinton, or any of the rest of the crew, we’ll just have to wait and see.

     Keep all of this in mind the next time you hear the Obamunists talking about transparency...or “leaks.”

  1. Most transparent administration ever. You bet. And because the media is in bed with the administration, there won't even be a hiccup about it. Now, back to our show...

    NO, NO, NO.

    How much more evidence do you need. This administration is not bumbling. It is not clueless. It is not oblivious.

    It is doing everything it can to destroy this country and it is moving from success to success.

    Please prove me wrong. A broken clock is right twice a day. A bumbling idiot will sometimes get something right. What has gone right for the American people in the past two terms?
