Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Ken Cuccinelli
Of the many names that have been floated as possible replacements for Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen one stands out; former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli.

For starters, Ken Cuccinelli has three things that Nielsen lacked – a commitment to the Trump border security agenda, a willingness to fight Democrats and the Republican establishment to make the President’s agenda a reality, and the effective TV presence necessary to sell it to the American people.

Cuccinelli’s reputation as a no-nonsense lawyer and law enforcement official is a plus that some of the other contenders don’t have, but perhaps even more importantly, Cuccinelli has also proven himself to be an adept and creative litigator.

Many outside the conservative movement may have forgotten that as Virginia’s Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli led the fight against Obamacare. Cuccinelli was the first AG to file suit against Obama’s disastrous attempt to take over the US health care industry, and it was Cuccinelli’s thinking outside the box approach to fighting Obamacare and his persistence in picking out each brick of the Obamacare edifice that helped bring the disaster down.

And that same kind of methodical, persistent, attention to the details of immigration law is what it is going to take to put on the President’s desk policies and departmental action that will enforce our immigration laws and protect American sovereignty in the face of Leftwing judicial activism and Democrat obstruction.

Ken Cuccinelli also has another advantage that some of the other alleged contenders lack – he’s not going to apologize for being a conservative and believing that President Trump is right, and that American sovereignty is worth protecting.

And, truth be told, that was Kirstjen Nielsen’s greatest defect.

Even though she went up to the Hill and on TV and generally said all the right things, there was a steady drip of rumors, leaks and suggestions that she didn’t really believe what she was saying and that she was more in tune with the Jeb Bush “illegal immigration is love” point of view.

That’s not going to happen with Ken Cuccinelli at the helm of the Department of Homeland Security.

There’s a final point that may seem like inside baseball but is very important to getting a new Secretary of Homeland Security confirmed and running the Department effectively – knowing how Capitol Hill and big federal bureaucracies work.

We’ve seen some good outsider-type appointees come to grief because they didn’t get how Washington and the federal bureaucracy work, and they didn’t appreciate that the Left, the Deep State in their agencies and congressional Democrats would be gunning for them every day.

Ken Cuccinelli has the outsider connection with the conservative grassroots and the limited government constitutional conservative movement, but he’s already been through the fire of fighting the Left and having Democrats after his head, and he not only survived, but thrived.

"Ken's not afraid of anything," said Mark Lloyd, one of the founding leaders of the Virginia Tea Party Patriots. "When he takes a stand, that's it. There's not a lot of squish to him—he's got a spine. He's got a little bit of that Ronnie Reagan thing working."

Running the Department of Homeland Security for President Trump, and getting the Trump agenda accomplished will take spine, smarts, media savvy and the ability to think creatively to get the job done. Of all the good names that have surfaced Ken Cuccinelli is the only candidate who checks all those boxes, which is why we urge President Trump to nominate him for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.

Cuccinelli for Sec of Homeland Security

Mr. Viguerie,

I got to speak with former AG Ken Cuccinelli on CSPAN Washington Journal about the border invasion. I directly asked him about Article IV Section 4. He deflected to Article I Section 10 Paragraph 3.

I don't think he's the one to fulfill America's reason for being; protection from invasion.
Heck, why would any state join a union if they had to protect themselves if invaded? Wasn't that the prime reason for uniting?
