It’s time once again for the Watcher’s Council’s ‘Weasel Of The Week’ nominations, where we pick our choices to compete for the award of  the famed Golden Weasel to a public figure  who particularly deserves to be slimed and mocked for his or her dastardly deeds during the week. Every Tuesday morning, tune in for the Weasel of the Week nominations!

Here are this weeks’ nominees….

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough!!

The Noisy Room: My nomination for Weasel of the Week is White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough for slipping and releasing the name of the American woman hostage that ISIS has in their clutches currently. He was on ABC when he did the oopsie. He was pontificating about how we are fighting ISIS halfway around the world, which was hilarious. Then he went on to speak about our friendship and support of Japan, which also brought on the giggles.

But when asked about the American hostage and the hostage crisis in general, he opened mouth and inserted both feet – not funny at all:

“And as it relates to our hostages, we are obviously continuing to
work those matters very, very aggressively. We are sparing no
expense, and sparing no effort, both in trying to make sure that we
know where they are and make sure that we’re prepared to do anything
we must to try to get them home. But [REDACTED] family knows how
strongly the president feels about this. And we will continue to
work this.”

The name of the American woman being held by ISIS was previously unnamed.

McDonough’s mistake was first noticed by ABC foreign editor Jon Williams.

The name has now been withdrawn because of security concerns by the family. But the damage was done. For going above and beyond uncaring… he gets my nomination this week. I strongly suspect the dropping of the name was intentional.

Legend In His Own Mind And Rotund Radical Rabble Rouser Michael Moore!!

Nice Deb: Well, I thought Michael Moore dodged the weasel bullet, last week, after we allowed him to get away with several obnoxious statements about the movie American Sniper. He eventually backtracked a bit – but over the weekend, he came back with a vengeance.

Via Ace of Spades: Michael Moore: When You Think About It, I’m the Real Hero, Not That Coward Chris Kyle

The other weasel nominees have their work cut out for them, I think.

Islamist Appeaser, Illegal Alien Shill And Head of the DHS Jeh Johnson!!!

JoshuaPundit: Jah, he ist yus followin’ der orders, but doing it oh so efficiently, so like the soulless bureaucrat rat he is.

The DHS is supposed to protect American security at home, but how can they do that when politics from the White House forbids them to act?

Last week, the story broke about brand new directives issued to border patrol agents by Jeh Johnson and his functionaries on apprehending illegal aliens. Essentially, it’s not supposed to happen unless the agents actually see a violent crime in progress, know for a fact that the illegal migrant is a violent criminal or get specific orders from their superiors:

The training materials, when coupled with a November 20, 2014 memo on prosecutorial discretion from Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, indicate that agents should primarily only arrest someone who they directly see cross the border, if they are a wanted criminal, a convicted felon, have an extensive or a violent criminal history, or otherwise pose a national security or public safety threat.

The majority of other illegal aliens cannot be detained or deported without specific approval from leadership.

The source clarified this and said, “Nothing says don’t arrest, but it clearly says don’t waste your time because the alien will not be put into detention, sent back or deported. There is literally no reason to arrest an illegal alien because they are specifically telling Border Patrol there will be no consequence for the illegal alien. It is a waste of time and resources to arrest someone who is off limits for detainment or deportation and the documents make that fact clear. Border Patrol agents are now being trained to be social workers, not law enforcement.”

The Jeh Johnson memo further illuminates the intention behind the leaked training materials and exactly how broad the “not a priority” category is intended to be. Johnson wrote:

As a general rule, DHS detention resources should be used to support the enforcement priorities noted above or for aliens subject to mandatory detention by law. Absent extraordinary circumstances or the requirement of mandatory detention, field office directors should not expend detention resources on aliens who are known to be suffering from serious physical or mental illness, who are disabled, elderly, pregnant, or nursing, who demonstrate that they are primary caretakers of children or an infirm person, or whose detention is otherwise not in the public interest. To detain aliens in those categories who are not subject to mandatory detention, DHS officers or special agents must obtain approval from the ICE Field Office Director.
The source said, “This is not how it was before. Border Patrol used to arrest, process, and turn the illegal alien over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the courts. Under this new program, the majority of illegal aliens will be released directly from the Border Patrol with no appointments or expectation that they ever have to show up for a hearing.

“Before these changes, all illegal aliens arrested by Border Patrol were required to enter the deportation system where they would be scheduled for a deportation hearing at a future date. Under this new system, the illegal aliens are not even required to show up for a hearing ever. Not only are we releasing these people with no hearings scheduled, no notice to appear, but the DHS [Department of Homeland Security] is forcing Border Patrol to prepare the initial paperwork for the illegal aliens’ work permits.” The source added, “Americans really need to think about the terrorism-related implications of this. Illegal aliens who are suspected of having terrorism ties, but not convicted, could be permitted to stay in the country.”

Essentially, we no longer have border control.  And don’t think it’s just Mexicans and Central Americans looking for work and those lovely social welfare benefits that know that. Others will exploit it, and America will pay dearly for it.

Coach Bill Belichick and Coach Pete Carroll!!

Ask Marion: I will have to go with Coach Bill Belichick and Coach Pete Carroll and the system(s) that supports cheaters in the football arena: ‘CheaterGate’ as I like to call it. In Carroll’s case his infractions started at USC. I wrote about this in greater detail in my entry for the Watcher’s Forum.

As I wrote… Perhaps the bigger question the media, who have been obsessed with the ‘deflated balls’ and DeflateGate this past week should be asking is: Which NFL Super Bowl XLIX (49) coach is a bigger cheater Bill Belichick or Pete Carroll? Both these coaches have a long list of violations and breaches of ethics to answer for.

Well, there it is. What a despicable group of  Weasels…ANY OF THEM COULD WIN! Check back Thursday to see which Weasel walks off with the statuette of shame!

Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum.

And remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council, and the results are posted on Friday morning.

It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere, and you won’t want to miss it...or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.

And don’t forget to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter..’cause we’re cool like that, y’know?

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
