14 Dead, DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson Didn’t Want to Invade Malik’s Privacy

Jeh Johnson was more concerned about Tashfeen Malik’s privacy than the lives of innocent Americans.

Gee, maybe it’s just me, but I think 14 people in San Bernardino had their civil rights violated with extreme prejudice.

Can we all say it together? Political correctness kills.

From The Hill:

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson decided against ending a secret U.S. policy that prohibits immigration officials from reviewing social media posts of foreigners applying for U.S. visas, according to a report by ABC News.

Johnson decided to keep the prohibition in place in early 2014 because he feared a civil liberties backlash and “bad public relations,” according to ABC.

“During that time period immigration officials were not allowed to use or review social media as part of the screening process,” John Cohen, a former acting undersecretary at the Department of Homeland Security for intelligence and analysis, told ABC News.

One current and one former senior counterterrorism official confirmed Cohen’s account to ABC. …

Another former senior counterterrorism official vouched for Cohen’s retelling: “They felt looking at public postings [of foreign U.S. visa applicants] was an invasion of their privacy.”
Cohen said there were concerns over the U.S. government’s standing with civil rights groups and European allies after National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden disclosed surveillance policies.
“It was primarily a question of optics,” Cohen said. “There were concerns from a privacy and civil liberties perspective that while this was not illegal, that it would be viewed negatively if it was disclosed publicly.”
Optics? Are you people f’ing kidding? How about these optics? 
I think it’s worth noting that in the private sector, prospective employers have been looking at the social networking accounts of prospective employees for years. Here’s an article warning job seekers about that fact. Check out the date, nearly SIX YEARS ago. You can’t get a job at the pretzel store in the mall if you post something about being hung over, but if you declare your passionate desire to commit mass murder, the Obama Regime says “Come on in!”
Is anyone going to demand that the Regime change this policy IMMEDIATELY? Or is the Obama Regime comfortable with more innocent Americans being murdered because of their obsession with political correctness?

  1. A. Is anyone going to demand that the Regime change this policy IMMEDIATELY?
    B. Or is the Obama Regime comfortable with more innocent Americans being murdered because of their obsession with political correctness?
    Answer= B
    Rather than having to go thru the pain of an Exec Order to confiscate our guns, let ISIL come on in! FUNDEMENTAL CHANGE! Only Muslims left. Allah Akbar.
    Half of the Obama Czars , Jeh Johnson,and Valerie Jarrett are Muslim. We know what the POTUS believes in.

    Representative Peter King did not fully embrace Trump’s widely-condemned plan, telling TPM: “I wouldn’t be willing to adopt that specific policy, but I am willing to debate the merits of it, and I think we should.”

    “What we should do is we should be profiling people who are getting on airplanes and we should be profiling people that are coming into America and those coming into America should meet a profile where they are the most likely to be able to contribute to our society and our economy and assimilate into the American civilization, and I have said publicly that Muslims do not do that in significant numbers,” he added.

    He also credited the read estate mogul with starting a debate about Muslims in America, arguing that political correctness in the country was “debilitating and almost suicidal.”

    “I am not announcing that I agree with him, but I do say that I thank him for opening up the topic and opening up it nice and wide so we can have a real debate about this,” King said.

  2. Strange that Hillary in her recent exchange with Jim Jordan, mentioned how hard it was to keep track of these people, what with having to screen their social media. Which is it? We can, or we can’t? I think we can, we just refuse to.

    • Jeh only protects Muslims and not US citizens.
      Judicial Watch posted a report Friday that said Jeh Johnson, the secretary of Homeland Security, confirmed in a recent news conference that his grandfather appeared before the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1940s.
      Judicial Watch said the FBI previously disclosed that “the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.”
      Johnson’s family history is relevant, Judicial Watch said, “because, although Islamic terrorists keep attacking America, the cabinet official responsible for the nation’s safety has vowed to protect Muslims from the type of persecution he says his grandpa suffered under McCarthyism in the 1940s.”Another Obama Muslim Czar!
