How did Attorney Holder RECUSE himself??

May 16, 2013

Time for some Thursday Morning Humor…..OK, it is NOT really funny….Do “they” really expect us to BELIVE this CRAP???

Yesterday I posted this:

“Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday said he recused himself last year from a national security leak probe in which prosecutors obtained the phone records of Associated Press journalists.”

Well, isn’t that convenient??

And SOMETIMES our Congress people ask really good questions:

While we know Holder has recused himself from the case, Bachus’ questions reveal that apparently Holder doesn’t know when exactly he did so.

On what date did you recuse yourself?” Bachus asked.

I’m not sure, I think it was towards the beginning of the matter,” Holder responded.

“Isn’t that sort of an unacceptable procedure?  The statue says that the attorney general shall approve the subpoena.  There was no memorandum, no email — when you recused yourself, was it in writing, was it orally?  Did you tell someone, did you alert the White House?” Bachus probed.

“I would’ve told the deputy attorney general,” Holder replied, though he said there would be no record of it in writing.” – The Blaze

So now we are just supposed to take the LIARS word for it??  Are you kidding me??

What a FARCE!!!  Holder belongs in JAIL!!!

Holder RECUSES himself!!???

May 15, 2013

Here is the PROCEDURE FROM THE DOJ:

“From the DOJ’s U.S. Attorney’s Manual:

The Attorney General’s authorization is normally required before the issuance of any subpoena to a member of the news media or for the telephone toll records of a member of the news media. However, in those cases where the media member or his or her representative agrees to provide the material sought

 

 

 

The manual continues:

Department attorneys seeking the Attorney General’s authorization to issue a subpoena to a member of the news media, or for telephone toll records of a media member, must submit a written request summarizing the facts of the prosecution or investigation, explaining the essentiality of the information sought to the investigation or prosecution, describing attempts to obtain the voluntary cooperation of the news media through negotiation and explaining how the proposed subpoena will be fashioned as narrowly as possible to obtain the necessary information in a manner as minimally intrusive and burdensome as possible.

Obviously, this puts Holder and the entire DOJ in an interesting position.”

 

 

AG Holder recused himself from AP probe” – USA Today

“Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday said he recused himself last year from a national security leak probe in which prosecutors obtained the phone records of Associated Press journalists.”

 

Well, isn’t that convenient??

 

 

HEY HOLDER, I HAVE AN IDEA,  WHY DON”T YOU JUST GO AHEAD AND “RECUSE” YOURSELF FROM YOUR POSITION??? 

It’s called a resignation!!!  And it will be good GREAT for the country!!!  You are WHOLLY unqualified for your position and are a disgrace!!!

One of the problems with LAWS in the USA…

December 21, 2011

This morning I was reading an article on FoxNews, about how the Attorney General of California was suing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and I read the following paragraph:

“Harris also called on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to disclose whether they have complied with civil rights laws protecting minorities and members of the Armed Forces against unlawful convictions and foreclosures.”

Here is ONE of the problems that I see with respect to laws in the USA.  Do the Legislators that write these laws even think about what they say??  Do they even consider the Constitution??  Go ahead, read the quote again.

“Harris also called on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to disclose whether they have complied with civil rights laws protecting minorities and members of the Armed Forces against unlawful convictions and foreclosures.”

Here is my question.  What about us middle class white guys??  Do we have a DIFFERENT “Civil Rights” law that protects US from UNLAWFUL convictions and foreclosure?? 

In the Constitution, all men are created EQUAL!!  We ALL have the right to equal protection under the law.  No one is “more equal” than anyone else!!!  WHY is there a law that ONLY protects “minorities” and members of the Armed Forces??  These are the problems with these types of laws, they single out a group of people and “appear” to give them preferential treatment.  In my opinion, ALL of these laws need to be repealed.  Let’s go back to everyone is EQUAL, and deserves to be treated fairly.  I understand that some groups were not, perhaps are not, treated fairly.  In current cases, we need to PUNISH the perpetrator, to protect EVERYONE, NOT single out a group for special treatment.  We need to attempt to be “fair” to EVERYONE, and treat everyone for laws as EQUALS.

Let me know what you think.

P.S.  The “all men are created equal”, is not to disparage women.  When this was written, the English language used the descriptor “men” to include everyone in a group, including women, if there was one man present in the group.  It was accepted as correct language usage.  Many “romantic” languages (Spanish, French, Italian, etc.) continue in this tradition today.  The tradition may be changing in the English language today, but please, do not apply todays “politically correctness” to another time period, that did NOT have those concerns.

Eric Holder in Afghanistan…

July 1, 2010

Here is an article about a trip that Eric Holder is currently on from the Huffington Post. 

I thought that was interesting, you know, with everything that he (Eric Holder) need to do here in the US.  Such as, file against the Arizona Immigration Law, figure out how to thwart a Federal Judge and reinstate the drilling ban, file criminal charges against British Petroleum, figure out how to circumvent the 2nd Amendment ruling from the Supreme Court, etc.  What could he be doing in Afghanistan?

Here is another article concerning the same trip, from MSN.  Following are some quotes from the article.  Bold is my thoughts on the quotes.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder was in the Afghan capital to talk with officials about improving the justice system and fighting corruption (such as selling a Senate Seat) Wednesday, a day after Afghanistan’s top prosecutor defended himself against allegations that he’s being pressured not to pursue cases against powerful figures (such as the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia).

The Obama administration and other donor nations, who need Karzai to be perceived as a credible partner (doesn’t Karzai need Obama to be perceived as a credible partner), are pushing him to clean up bribery, graft and corruption (such as selling a Senate Seat, or dismissing Tax Cheats, so they can work in your administration).

“Fighting corruption and supporting the rule of law (such as Bankruptcy Lawin Afghanistan are top priorities for this administration, and we will continue to assist the Afghan government in creating and sustaining the effective criminal justice system to which the Afghan people are entitled,” Holder said in a statement issued by the U.S. Justice Department in Washington.

Let me know what you think.
