Janet Napolitano Quits: Will Be Next University Of California President

Tyler Durden's picture





 

While everyone is focused on whether Mr. Burns, aka Larry Summers  will take over for Ben Bernanke (he won't), lots of peripheral resignations are flying around. the most recent one: that of the U.S. secretary of the $60-billion budget and 240,000 employees Department of Homeland Security - Janet Napolitano, who will be named the next president of the University of California system. As the LA Times reports, "nothing was pushing her out of Washington now, although the Senate’s recently approved compromise plan on immigration faces an uncertain fate in the Republican-controlled House." The good news: we await for UCLA to be promptly upgraded to AAA and issue bonds inside of the US.

From LATimes:

Janet Napolitano, the U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and former governor of Arizona, is being named as the next president of the University of California system, in an unusual choice that brings a national-level politician to a position usually held by an academic. Her appointment also means the 10-campus system will be headed by a woman for the first time in its 145-year history.

 

Napolitano’s nomination by a committee of UC regents came after a secretive process that insiders said focused on her early as a high-profile, although untraditional, candidate who has led large public agencies and shown a strong interest in improving education.

 

UC officials believe that her Cabinet experiences –- which include helping to lead responses to hurricanes and tornadoes and overseeing some anti-terrorism measures -- will help UC administer its federal energy and nuclear weapons labs and aid its federally funded research in medicine and other areas.

 

“While some may consider her to be an unconventional choice, Secretary Napolitano is without a doubt the right person at the right time to lead this incredible university,"  Sherry Lansing, the regent and former film industry executive who headed the search committee, said in a statement being released Friday. "She will bring fresh eyes and a new sensibility -- not only to UC, but to all of California. She will stand as a vigorous advocate for faculty, students and staff at a time when great changes in our state, and across the globe, are presenting as many opportunities as challenges.”

 

Napolitano, who is a Democrat, was appointed by former President Clinton as the U.S. attorney in Arizona and then won elections as state attorney general and twice as governor, a position she held from 2003 to 2009. President Obama then named her to lead Homeland Security, an agency with an annual $60-billion budget and 240,000 employees.

 

She has been a strong voice in favor of immigration reform that would provide a path to citizenship for those in the country illegally, a stance that has angered some Republicans who contend she has not done enough to secure the nation’s borders.

 

A source close to Napolitano, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, said that Napolitano deliberated for a long time after the executive search firm hired by UC quietly contacted her.

 

“I think she loves working for President Obama and serving the American people, but at the same time, this is a unique opportunity,” he said. Napolitano knows “UC is probably the premier institution in the country. She is motivated by the fact that being a part of UC, she will be a part of educating future leaders of tomorrow and be part of a state that sets so much of the agenda nationally.”

 

Napolitano, 55, is no stranger to California colleges since she attended Santa Clara University and was its first woman valedictorian before earning her law degree at University of Virginia. Her father was dean of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, a family connection that UC regents also liked since they oversee medical centers. In Arizona, she helped to enact plans to provide full-day kindergarten and to renovate university buildings, winning fans among educators.

 

The Napolitano friend insisted that nothing was pushing her out of Washington now, although the Senate’s recently approved compromise plan on immigration faces an uncertain fate in the Republican-controlled House.

 

The secretary faced some controversy in Congress when critics alleged the Boston Marathon bombings, reportedly perpetrated by ethnic Chechens from Russia who had been granted political asylum, exposed shortcomings in security.

Not chosen, but installed to further pervert the once great U.C. system. Mr Napalitono, a.k.a. Janet “The Bull” is an un-American, subversive, treasonous, criminal gopher working for the out of control, criminally insane, ruling oligarchy. [This is not gay bashing] Additionally, she abused her position on a personal level for her cronies and her own sick, perverse pleasures as was stated in the lawsuits against her. Her government costume should have had Rainbow shoulder patches with Swastikas. She’s a lying, abusive, fascist pig who should be prosecuted and in prison along with the likes of war criminal, Henry Kissinger, mass murderer Brzezinski. Instead the phony media will show him being showered with all sorts of cheesy meaningless government awards.

I personally nominate Mr. Janet Napolitano for the Medal of Freedom.

Drink your fluoride. Take your mercury and cancer spiked vaccines, and shut up. We’re done.

Do not forget Edward Snowden. The US government actions regarding to Edward Snowden clearly indicate a state of panic, paranoia, and utterly desperation.

So, a big deal one of CIA man runs away and discloses that the US government spying on its citizens. It is not a big secret. Everybody with any brain knows this. Such things have happened many times before without any noise or publicity.

Furthermore, both China and Russia decided to stay out of this affair even there are plenty of potential propaganda and intelligence information for them.  Putin even stated that Edward Snowden was welcome to Russia as long as he would promise to keep his mouth shut. Why not to use him? Apparently, Edward Snowden information is too sensitive and too hot to handle for both China and Russia. After all, to keep things as they are now is in China and Russia interests.

It appears that Edward Snowden knows something very important and very hot. This information could be about the past and/or future False Flag Operations by the US government and its allies.

Just killing Edward Snowden is not an option for now. His info could be hidden in some secure place to come out in a case of his death.

Janet Napolitano follows the Zionist line, and is believed to be Jewish. She was graduated from Santa Clara University in Santa Clara, California, where she won a Jewish Scholarship.

She is a raging feminist, “has appeared on the cover of every Gay magazine in Arizona,” supports massive immigration, open borders and abortion, and wanted  the Minutemen charged as terrorists.

She is the woman who went down to Mexico to confer with Vicente Fox to make a more comfortable route for illegal immigrants through Arizona, providing drinking fountains, etc., along their paths into America while she was governor of an American state, a move against the wishs of the people of Arizona. 

According to News With Views during her Arizona reign: “Janet Napolitano.., against the majority of Arizona Voters that passed Proposition 200…vowed to find a way to defeat the measure, she has done exactly that by using MALDEF/La Raza to file a lawsuit on the behalf of illegal immigrants claiming that the measure somehow infringed on their non-existent civil rights…

“The talk among many here in the Phoenix area concerning our Governor is getting ugly, she has ignored most letters and does not respond to correspondence on issues she supports. "

http://www.newswithviews.com/public_comm/public_commentary19.htm

Here is how Judicial Watch rates Napolitano as Secretary of Homeland Security (2012):

“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....”

Correct.. And from a larger perspective, it was also Berkely, Harvard, Columbia, etc. which donated a lot of evil rich $$$ to Obama's campaign both times. This simply reveals that:

1.) The most elite schools pander so they can get the most research contracts, grants, etc. and they have the most to lose when the college industrial complex collapses.

2.) fuck every other racket or leech whose sole purpose is to suck off the government and this ultimately rape the taxpayer.

Yup. The departures started a while ago, but all the signs point at something so big it'll take down anyone involved with it.

It could also simply be they've read the report and know the USD will collapse unpredicatbly within a certain near-term timeframe and don't want to be around when it happens, but my bet is something truly crazy is going to come out -- be it Snowden and NSA blackmailing congress, Benghazi being a US gov't operation to help with the re-election, ot something black-swanish (given all the secret laws on snooping, imagine if it came out there was a secret maximum security prison with 1,500 otherwise belived to be missing persons in it, for example.)

We seem to be mirroring the 1970s with stagflation, oil price shock, pentagon papers (snowden) so now we just need the Nixon scandal...

I've got pictures of 4 of them geared up in my town the other day.  Bullet proof vests over black polo shirts, tan cargo pocket slacks, leg rig holsters. Fifth looked like a supervisor w/o vest. Couple teenage male groupies hovering around. No apparent reason other than just as a show of force. Looked pretty buff, definately not lard-assed.

whatcha doing with all those pictures, Sam?  :)   

will cede the point on fitness, (for those 5) then, but here's the important deal: They have a weakness.  They love something or somebody, somewhere.  They get the rules they extend, and so far I see a trend that's headed for the shitter.  Not only with them, but any agency all the way down to county or muni level in some cases.

When this goes bad finally, it will rival the middle age Italian vendettas or Sarajevo in '93.    Were they in a tight group?  5 yard spread?  They haven't LEARNED yet.  Confident can kill if it's too thick.

I'm a cynic, but this may have more to do with the immigration bill. My guess is they nominate a "Republican" to take her job. One who will really really promise to secure the border if the other Republicans just pass the bill. Then once the bill is passed the new guy exposes his real colors.

She should start by giving free tuition to all illegal alien students by raising the UC tuition on residents by 8-15%. They currently pay 46K a year, but I think they could handle 51-55K per year. We need more skilled workers in this country and supplanting tax paying residents for welfare grabbing illegals is the right way.

Who knows how many millions of Americans were exposed to dangerous levels of radiation thanks to Napolitano's approval of hazardous body scanners.  Showing off a back scatter radiation scanner at an airport, a reporter asked her to step through it.  She refused.  No thorough safety testing was done on these scanners before they were rushed into service.  Michael Chertoff, the Bush Secretary of Homeland Security, made plenty of money representing the scanner manufacturer.  One test report showed that the back scatter scanner tested emitted ten times the safe level of radiation.  That report was first suppressed.  When someone released the information in this report, first Napolitano's flunkies said the testing was done incorrectly.  Within a few weeks of this damaging report receiving the light of day, Homeland Security stopped using the expensive radiation scanners.  This whole episode of declaring safe back scatter body scanners reminds me of then Enviromental Protection Agency Secretary Christine Todd Whitman saying on or about Serptember 17, 2001 that the area around the World Trade Center was safe, even as toxic smoke belched from deep under Ground Zero.  You can go to jail for lying to a federal official but the reverse is not the case, Feds can lie to you with impunity.  Obama even has a proposal allowing government agencies to lie to persons filing information requests under the Freedom of Information Act, so the agency can lie to the filer and tell the person the agency does not have the record requested under FOIA, to avoid providing the document in their files.
