    Investigating Eric Holder 

    Believe me, I am no fan of Eric Holder.  I feel that he never should have gotten the job as Attorney General.  The Department of Justice has a bad habit of looking at everything on a color bar instead of justice.  The entire purpose of our justice system in this country is give equal rights to all.

    Since Holder has taken over lawsuits against states to firm up their voter rolls have been dropped.  By law, every state across the union is supposed to update their voter registration rolls in order to get the money that the federal government gives them to help cover the costs for all federal level elections.  The department filed these suits against states that were not keeping up with their end of the bargain when Michael Mukasey was heading the department.  They were summarily dropped when Holder took over.  The evidence of how the department of “civil rights” is anything but.  While most of the people in this department are career lawyers, it still is a statement of the people who are running the department when eyes are closed to what they are doing.  Free and fair elections cannot happen if we don’t have trust that the states are doing what they should be doing when it comes to removing ineligible voters off the rolls.

    As much I would like to think that Eric Holder is going to be convicted of perjury, I just don’t see it happening.  What Eric Holder actually said was that he wasn’t aware of anyone wanting to prosecute reporters.  While it may be a parsing of words, there is a big difference being investigating a person and charging a person with a crime.

    The real thing that should be investigated is who is the person who misled the courts?  By AG Holder’s own testimony, they never had any intention of charging James Rosen with a crime, they just wanted some information that they could get no other way.  Someone stood in front of judge and asked for phone and email records of a private citizen who they never had any intention of prosecuting.  Not only that, they went judge “shopping” to find one that would allow them not to notify his employers and called him a flight risk.  This person should be fired for cause, therefore giving up all rights to the federal benefits, and also be barred from practicing law, ever again.

    Now, I do think that since Eric Holder’s signature is on the paperwork he can no longer be trusted by Americans to do what is fair and just.   If President Obama had any sense he would ask for the resignation of his attorney general.  Moving forward the citizens of this country deserve to have someone at the helm of this department that they believe is doing the work of the office, giving citizens the belief that our justice system is doing its job, upholding the law without regard to political beliefs, race, color, or creed.  The amount of power this department used to go after one person is exactly what our founders warned us against and tried to protect us from.

    Some Twitter News 

    The AG of the US is facing contempt of congress charges and I see Piers Morgan is talking to the founder of Smashing Pumpkins Way to go @CNN

    Here is an exchange I had with a reporter:

    Him: House panel approves contempt citation; why does it feel like it will be an interesting edition of The Five today ?

    Me: maybe you should ask yourself why your employer has not covered this much. Did you know that their r people who don’t even know?
    Him: it is sort of alarming how many folks have barely covered a case that resulted in a federal agent getting gunned down

    Gee ya think? Parents had to bury their child. They deserve answers

    NBC News Anchor Brian Williams on today’s vote for contempt charges against AG Holder in the fast and furious debacle.

    Hey Brian, did you ever stop to think that one of the reasons that people aren’t “following the complexities” of it is because news organizations like yours doesn’t report on it?  Just a thought.

    Boy Times Have Changed – Senator Obama Didn’t Like Executive Privilege 

    It is the same old story with President Obama.  Bash Bush whenever you feel you score some cheap political points.  This is nothing new, this interview comes from 2007.   While I do understand that communications with a president must be breached only in certain circumstances, as they need to be able to get advice without those advisors thinking they could end up in jail for what they say.  This is a very different set of circumstances.  Holder and President Obama have repeatedly claimed that his knowledge of “Fast & Furious” has been minimal.  If he had no knowledge, there shouldn’t be communications that need to be protected.

    What is Holder hiding and why?  Keep digging Congressman Issa, keep digging.  The family of that dead agent have the right to the truth.  They buried their child.

     “Mr. Holder. How come you can never say my sons name. You never have. All i ever hear you say is ‘i didnt find out or I cant say’ Im actually tired of hearing your double talk in answering questions. What a joke you are. You know my son was a real AMERICAN, a WARRIOR, and a HERO, who was also protecting COWARD POLITICANS like you.”

      The only measure of peace they will find is with Holder’s resignation, indictment, prosecution and conviction.

    Quote of the Day – Department of Justice Spokesperson Edition 

    ”That is a complete distortion of the attorney general’s comment. His comments both in the article and elsewhere made clear that he believes much of the criticism is launched against him are unfortunately the typical Washington gotcha game. A simple reading of those comments show he was referring to how he is identified with the president given their close relationship and all they share in common including their ideology. The position of the attorney general has been a target for partisan attacks, and given the critical work that this attorney general he is doing at the Department of Justice, it’s no surprise that some are engaging in such tactics. His critics rightly view the attorney general is a progressive force, and given our current political environment, there will those who use any opportunity to score political points.”

    A spokesperson from the defense department regarding charges of AG Holder using the race card during an interview with The New York Times.  

    In case you need a reminder, here is his quote:

    “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him, both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

    Hmm, his quote sure sounded about race to me.  But, at least they admitted he was a “progressive”.  I guess that is progress.

    “We need election systems that are free from fraud, discrimination and partisan influence.”

    Eric Holder on voting rights.

    Yes, we do need elections free from fraud.  Asking for an ID will be a big step in that direction.

     
    • SignPainterGuy 11:11 PM on 12/19/2011 Permalink | Reply

      The only way elections would be free from fraud while Holder and Co. are in power is if every voter actually did support the dems ! As long as there are those of us who don`t, they cannot take a chance on leaving the voting entirely in the hands of the voters ! Take it to the bank, fraud WILL be happening !

      My governor, “Ma” Bev Perdue, NC, VERY Corrupt Lib Dem, vetoed the Voter Photo ID Bill, but signed the E-Verify Bill. It would seem she wants the votes of illegal aliens who can`t produce “quality fraudulent ID” and taxes from those who can !

    America: Emasculated By An Ignorant Administration 

    When high-ranking officials of the United States government will not read legislation of any kind but choose instead to impetuously criticize those who are standing guard over liberty, we, as a nation are in a world of hurt.

    Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, and Assistant Secretary of State P. J. Crowley have sheepishly confessed to not reading the Arizona Immigration Law (SB1070). 

    As the video I created will show, there are rebellious dissidents within our borders and within our institutes of higher learning who openly call Americans “frail, racist white people who want to keep us out of this country.”

    If, as proponents claim, there are six billion people at the forefront of the revolutionary movement known as La Raza, then yes, we must enforce our long-established immigration laws. 

    Ron Gochez menacingly warned, “There are more than forty million of our people north of the Rio Grande…there are over forty million potential revolutionaries north of the border inside the belly of the beast.  They know we are La Raza, we are professionals, we are educators, we are revolutionary students.”

    How truly astonishing it is that the Mexican government and its people believe that the United States exists solely to benefit them.  How bewildering it is that this president does nothing to dissuade Calderón from arrogantly preaching to the good people of this nation or allowing Mexico’s president to regard America as its cash cow.

    Mr. Obama, put your golf clubs and your community organizer mindset aside and stop emasculating the nation you purport to protect and, for God’s sake, stop being an imbecile.

      “How truly astonishing it is that the Mexican government and its people believe that the United States exists solely to benefit them.” Not at all astonishing, our own president believes this. His plan includes “spreading our wealth” around to all third world nations . . . Mexico is just conveniently located and can come on over and get their “share.”

      By the way, we already know that BO will NEVER move to center (what I think you mean by dropping the community organizer imbecility); he’s had that chance (after Scott Brown was elected), and he not only turned his back on it but ramped up his attack on this nation.

        I agree. He doesn’t have it in him to make a course correction.

        Going to watch the video . . . .

        Great job, Carol. I don’t think most Americans are aware of the struggle taking place in the border states.

        Charles Krauthammer: “Well, I’m sort of offended when the president of Mexico says, criticizing the Arizona law: ‘It’s placing our people in the face of discrimination.’ If they’re his people, what are they doing in the United States? If they’re his people, why did they leave Mexico, abandon his country, to live under the jurisdiction and the laws of the United States?”

        You’re 100% right, I don’t think he has a clue where the center lies. I said it a while back somewhere on here that his narcissistic nature will not allow it either. I truly hope the American people are paying attention. The GOP needs to get on the stick calling him out for “crimes against democracy” or heaven help what is going to come this way.

          Honestly, Ruby, I believe him to be guilty of treason. I know that sounds extreme, but what else do you call it when he is purposefully, methodically destroying America? Purposefully, willfully ignoring the Constitution and fueling the flames of social unrest, inciting violence with his careless (or actually carefully considered) statements about the Arizona law? Is he conspiring with other nations against the U. S. and her allies? It sure does seem so to me. Iran gets a wink and a nod, while Israel is publicly “called out’ regarding housing settlements. Dictators and crazies get deferential treatment, the Prime Minister of the UK is shunned and insulted. Where do BO’s loyalties lie? It sure doesn’t seem that they lie with the U. S. or its citizens (the majority of whom he refers to as “teabaggers” but God help anyone who asks an illegal immigrant for his green card!).

            I call it ideologically driven idiocy coupled with gross incompetence. Obama’s a fool who is in way over his head.

            I think you assume too much competence with him– as though this is all part of some master plan. And a foreign conspiracy that no one knows about, including members and wokers within our own govt.? You’re sounding a wee bit paranoid there Fuzzy.

              I think I sound paranoid because I’m getting that way. I hope it’s just over reaction, really I do. I do not agree you that BO is a fool, and I do think that he knows exactly what he’s doing. Even if you think him a fool, do you really believe that all the people around him are, too? Time will tell, of course, and in the meantime I’m off to mold myself a nice hat out of tinfoil.

                The Obama administration is a mess.

                How many czars does Obama have? You have hard-ball politicians like Rahm Emmanuel mixed in with ideolologues like Van Jones, Anita Dunn, the “safe school czar” whose name I can’t remember (Jennings is it?), and others. All of the ideologues have different axes to grind, different Leftist ideologies to promote (Maoists [Dunn] Green Marxist and probably race grievances [Van Jones], gay agendas [Jennings?] etc.), while the hard ball politicians have to try to gather Congressional votes, cut deals, make payoffs, etc. Now let’s factor in a largely ignored cabinet (I mean when was the last time we heard much about Hillary Clinton and she’s the Sect. of State) who are all ambitious and have their own careers and agendas. Could you possibly expect these people to harmoniously work together? It’s a complete mess. And Obama seems to offer no leadership over them at all. This is just one aspect of his incompetence.

                Don’t get me wrong, they can do plenty of damage– they already have. But they’re blundering about amateurly.

                Obama is a fool for believeing in a political theory that is a demonstrable failure in places like China, North Korea, the Soviet Union, East Germany, etc. Anyone who believes that socialist economies work despite all the evidence to the contrary, is a fool. He may be an educated fool, as so many people are (including those he surrounds himself with), but Obama is a fool nonetheless. BTW, fool does not equal idiot.

                  I’m glad you brought up Hillary. Do you think that she’s going to challenge him for the 2012 dem nom? She’s been silent on all sorts of issues, even healthcare which was “her baby” back in the day. The HillBuzz boys think she will, and I rather hope she does.

                    Don’t know. Things are very chaotic right now. In a way, I hope she does too. It’d be better for the US for her to be pres. rather than 4 more years of Obama.

                    However I think she’d be the stronger candidate against whoever the GOP put up. I mean if the GOP put up some numbskull like Ron Paul (good luck on that), Hillary Clinton would look pretty good. I never thought I would say those words…

                      Geez, I hope to God the GOP doesn’t run Ron Paul. He’s a loon. I’d rather see Sarah Palin than him (and I don’t think she’s a good choice, either).

                      I think that Hillary might win the Dem nom if she went for it full-tilt (didn’t succumb to her own Alinsky tactics when they’re used against her this time, for instance), but I don’t think she’d be that strong against the GOP in this climate. She’s still calling herself a progressive (and that’s about the worst thing you can be right now to center and center right peeps), and her own healthcare vision is similar to BO’s. Oddly, too, I don’t think she’s far enough left for the whackos who actually think BO is “too conservative” because he hasn’t declared himself king and turned us into a socialist nightmare that would put any country in Europe to shame.

    Three impossible things before breakfast 

    It’s official: the world has gone topsy-turvy.

    1)  Attorney General Eric Holder has questioned the constitutionality of Arizona’s immigration law and said it  “has the possibility of leading to racial profiling.” But he hasn’t read it.

    See Glenn Reynolds.

    2) The NY Times has been barred, by the White House, from speaking to Elena Kagan’s brother.

    The New York Times received permission on Tuesday from Hunter College High School in Manhattan, Elena Kagan’s alma mater, to observe a constitutional law class there taught by her brother Irving. We thought it would be intriguing to watch the give and take between Mr. Kagan, who is known as a passionate and interactive educator, and his students on his first day back after witnessing his sister’s nomination in Washington.

    Mr. Kagan, who is also a Hunter alumnus, did not have a problem with the idea, a school spokeswoman said, but she added that all media requests now had to be given final approval by the White House. The times were tentatively set: there was either an 8:52 a.m. class or a 9:36 a.m. class on Wednesday. “I thought it would have been great,” said the spokeswoman, Meredith Halpern.

    But when presented with the idea, the White House balked.

    Joshua Earnest, a White House spokesman, said that the administration was “uncomfortable with the idea at this time.” [. . .]

    A formal proposal has been submitted to the White House, which the administration requested. They asked that it outline the intent and goal of the article in significant detail.

    Wouldn’t it be interesting if Kagan’s brother, or cousin, also suddenly mum, chose to go over the head of their White House minders and talk to the press anyway?

    3)  There’s a bill before Congress that will mandate tracking the body mass index of all children, ages 2 – 18.

    The Healthy Choices Act–introduced by Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.), a member of the House Ways and Means Committee–would establish and fund a wide range of programs and regulations aimed at reducing obesity rates by such means as putting nutritional labels on the front of food products, subsidizing businesses that provide fresh fruits and vegetables, and collecting BMI measurements of patients and counseling those that are overweight or obese.

    Choice has become the dirtiest of dirty words. But Big Brother is only trying to make our lives easier:

    At a press conference last week to announce the introduction of the bill, Kind emphasized it would help “busy American families.”

    “Making the healthy choice the easy choice for our families is essential to ensuring our quality of life,” Kind said. “I am pleased to work on legislation that helps provide the opportunities that meet the needs of busy American families.”

    Nudge.

    RedState’s Dan McLaughlin comments:

    Let’s leave aside the many methodological problems with BMI as a measurement of obesity (such as the fact that muscular, athletic males are almost always classed as obese). The bill requires federal taxpayers to lay out yet more money to create yet another intrusive apparatus for tracking and storing information that, for example, your 16 year old daughter might regard as rather personal . . . .

    Read the rest.

    Can anyone explain to me why Holder is loading up the Justice Department with lawyers who have made their careers advocating for terrorists? Seems indicative of a mindset within the administration that is out of step with the American people.

      Eric Holder is a disgrace. But I can only think he is carrying water for Obama. Remember how he acted in such a politically expedient manner at the end of the Clinton administration when he pardoned the traitor and money-launderer for Saddam (but big Clinton contributor) Marc Rich.

        The short answer; I don’t these he’s advocating for us. You’d think these guys would prefer to stay in private practice and rack up the hourly fees defending terrorists in our Federal courts. BTW, who foots the bill their defense? Us?

    • Carol 3:51 PM on 02/20/2010 Permalink | Reply

      Yep, we foot the bill to defend terrorists who attacked us. Warms the cockles of your heart doesn’t it? We will pay for the lawyers who defend them and they will be prosecuted by people who sympathize with them. And we will pay for the prosecutors who sympathize with them. In the end the taxpayers will pony up with their money AND with their lives. Heck of a system we’ve got going.
