Early on in her career at Homeland Security She labeled returning Vets and Church going Christians as likely to be Domestic Terrorists. I'm sure most of you remember gher Right Wing Domestic Terrorism Assement, if not take a look here
She's assured us our borders are safer than under her watchful eye, while closing National Parks along the border because it's much to dangerous for Americans to be near the border. Let's go to the Video
While she was busy not protecting the borders, Julian Assange managed to sneak off with almost a million sensitive Government Documents. Or maybe that happened because she was at an Airport somewhere, groping little kids or ripping urine bags off of old men? Harrassing returning combat vets, From what I hear, she's especially proud of herTSA Groppers, and the way they treat children.
I guess given Janet's history of accomplishments this should have come as no surprise.
U.S. Government Shuts Down 84,000 Websites, ‘By Mistake’
You can click on the title and read the original story yourself. The short version is Homeland Security managed to find a judge with no regard for facts or the Constitution and got him/her to sign what amounted to a blanket warrant to seize the sites. Homeland Security is bragging about the operation while ignoring the fact they illegally seized 84,000 websites and slandered the owners. This is from the TorrentFreak article
That's very commendable Janet, but what about the 84,000 thousand sites that weren't dealing with child porn.. The sites were mostly small, the type Independent Political Bloggers like myself own, Many people own sites like that. Just think about it a second, 84,000 is a big number. included in a number like that would be
In a press release that went out a few hours ago the authorities were clearly proud of themselves for taking down 10 domain names.
However, DHS conveniently failed to mention that 84,000 websites were wrongfully taken down in the process, shaming thousands of people in the process.
“Each year, far too many children fall prey to sexual predators and all too often, these heinous acts are recorded in photos and on video and released on the Internet,” Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano commented
Legitimate small businesses A restaurant might use their site to advertise, tale carryout orders and book reservations. Contractors and builders use the websites to show case recent jobs and show off customer referral letters. Other small businesses have programs on their sites that allow customers to estimate and order product, right on the site
Those sites are perfect for churches, community organizations and non profits.
Schools use sites like that to show off off school accomplishments, and the skills and talent of their students.
There is no end to the legitimate uses of websites, another example;
Parents set up private websites so grandma can see pictures of her grandchildren... I can just imagine grandma, when she logged on to the family website to show off her grandchildren to friends, and found this.
Everyone of the 84,000 website that received a hit while that was posted has been damaged. I don't know how you compensate Grandma for the embarrassment.
I don't know if some builder who has been struggling since the recession began, lost his first major job in two years because his client went to check something on his site and found that instead
God help the minister who gets to explain that, to his congregation.
What about the restaurant owner who lost 100 regular customers forever because they think the guy is involved in child porn.
To be honest I don't know how you make any of the site owners whole again... Some site, some small businesses will never recover from Napolitano's utter disregard for the Constitution and American Citizen's rights to due process. You notice I specified American Citizens, she seems deeply concerned about protecting the rights of terrorists and non Citizens
No I don't know how the undo the damage Homeland Security did to the owners of those 84,000 websites. I know for openers Janet Napolitano needs to go, possibly to jail. This can't be excused by calling it a mistake.
Will Obama do fire her, or does he consider mistakes like this acceptable? Maybe, like the 10th Amendment the first and fouth Amendments have been suspended during his presidency?
