The pro-communist Congressional Black Caucus has nominated far left Texas Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee to replace Janet Napolitano as Homeland Security Secretary.
Communist affiliated Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson has taken himself out of contention, but has decided to endorse Jackson-Lee.
From culturemap Houston:
Representative Sheila Jackson Lee got a major boost from the Congressional Black Caucus with an official endorsement to fill Janet Napolitano’s seat as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
In a letter dated July 24, Ohio representative and caucus chair Marcia Fudge asks President Barack Obama to consider the Houston lawmaker for the federal appointment, noting her posts on House Committees for Foreign Affairs, Homeland Security and the Judiciary since she joined Congress in 1995.
Lee currently serves as the ranking member of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security, where the Black Caucus says she stands as a “strong and honest ‘voice of reason.’ “
Any Homeland Security nomination is sure to cause quite the buzz among conservative pundits.
The Mississippi Business Journal first broached the idea after receiving a statement from Mississippi U.S. representative Bennie Thompson explaining that, while his name was mentioned as a possible Homeland Security replacement, he would not seek the nomination. Instead he would endorse Lee.

In my new book The Enemies Within: Communists, Socialists and Progressives in the U.S. Congress, I devote several pages each to Bennie Thompson and Sheila Jackson-Lee.
Sheila Jackson-Lee, like many of her Congressional Black Caucus and Progressive Caucus colleagues, is a straight out security risk.
A few of many concerns about Jackson-Lee include:
On February 18, 1999, six members of the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus visited Cuba to evaluate the U.S.-imposed embargo. Among the visitors: communist affiliated Maxine Waters and Barbara Lee of California and Sheila Jackson-Lee of Texas.
In the mid-2000s, far left activist Stoney Cooks served as Sheila Jackson-Lee’s Chief of Staff and Administrative Assistant:
In 1967, Cooks was one of 41 Americans who traveled to Czechoslovakia to meet with representatives of the North Vietnamese government and the Viet Cong.
The American delegation included members of Students for a Democratic Society and other leftist groups. According to one participant, the meeting had been initiated by the North Vietnamese and the Americans “were expected not only to oppose the war in Vietnam but also to favor, on balance, an NLF (National Liberation Front) victory.
Stoney Cooks was among sponsors of a U.S. Preparatory Committee for the Soviet front 10th World Festival of Youth and Students held during 1973 in East Berlin. The committee operated from the offices of the official youth front for the Communist Party USA, the Young Workers Liberation League.
In the late 2000’s, Sheila Jackson-Lee was close to a scam initiated by the Communist Party spinoff Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism. The scam involved using the influence of U.S. Representatives and Senators to lobby for U.S. taxpayers money to pay “reparations” to the Vietnamese communist government for damage done by U.S. forces during the Vietnam War. The moral equivalent of U.S. taxpayers being forced to bail out Hitler for damage done to Germany in WW2.
In November 2007, Sheila Jackson-Lee met in her office with a delegation of Vietnamese communists and Merle Ratner of the Committees of Correspondence and her colleague Susan Schnall, who was court martialed as a Navy nurse during the Vietnam war for her anti-war activism.
