According to the local Los Angeles newspaper, The Daily Breeze, California Congresswoman, Jane Harman, a blue dog conservative democrat, is up for a high level intelligence position in the Obama administration. The positions being considered are CIA Director, Director of National Intelligence, and Secretary of Homeland Security. If this speculation becomes fact, and Harman is appointed overseer of the freedoms of the American people, the people’s freedoms are toast. Conservative Democrat Harman consistently legislates AGAINST participatory democracy and against personal freedom.
The most egregious example of Harman’s disregard for participatory democracy is HR 1955 – the “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007” – a frightening bill she slipped in the House for passage just over a year ago. HR 1955 is so anti-dissent, so anti-freedom and so McCarthy-like in its establishment of citizen review Commissions that I’ve written on it twice – both times appealing to the public to stop passage of its Senate clone, S 1959, which luckily has not yet come up for vote. Unfortunately, Mrs. Harman was so covert when sneaking in “1955” that no citizens could lobby to stop it.

Jane Harman (D – CA) is reportedly on President-Elect Barack Obama’s shortlist for a variety of positions in his upcoming administration including CIA director, Director of National Intelligence, and Secretary of Homeland Security.
The fact that Harman is begin considered is probably due to the fact that she joined a host of prominet Jews, including Middle East “negotiator” Dennis Ross, to assure Ohio’s Jewish voters that Obama would be a strong ally of Israel. Harman is the hawkish “blue dog” Democrat who slipped the dreaded Violent Radicalisation and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act (HR 1955) on a “suspension calendar for non-controversial bills,” making the innocuous bill pass effortlessly though the House.
