Holder RECUSES himself!!???

May 15, 2013


“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??

Eric Holder and Fast and Furious…

June 7, 2012

Sometimes my sarcasm does not come through in my writing as sarcasm, but rest assured IF anything I say can be construed as sarcastic, odds are that it was meant sarcastically.  With that being said sometimes I wish that I could be in a position to actually ask people questions.  Here are two articles concerning the Congressional hearing today where Attorney General Eric Holder was being grilled about the Fast and Furious program that was run under HIS department.

The first one is from the Blaze and here is a quote:

“You claim with passion that nobody at the senior levels at the Department of Justice prior to the death of Brian Terry knew that  guns were walking, and I‘ve got an email from Jason Weinstein using the term ’guns walking,’” Chaffetz said.

“That refers to Wide Receiver, not Fast and Furious,” Holder replied.

“That is not what the February 4 letter that was sent to the United States Congress said,” said Chaffetz. “That’s not true.”

But Holder didn’t relent and went on to say the letter was determined to be inaccurate and repeated that the email referred only to Wide Receiver. So Chaffetz read the letter verbatim to Holder and Committee members.

“The email says Fast and Furious, you say it doesn’t. I’ve got it in black and white,” Chaffetz said.

Holder shortly later asserted, “I have superior knowledge.””

What???  He did NOT just say that, did he??  Excuse me while I spit up my coffee…

Later in the grilling here is what Holder said:

Holder also told members of the House Judiciary Committee that he does not know when the Obama administration was first made aware of the “tactics” used in Fast and Furious, adding yet another important detail that the attorney general claims he has either forgotten or was not briefed on.”

And this is where I wish that I could ASK MY QUESTION…..”You do NOT know???…..Is that an example of your “superior knowledge“??”

Or after this:

Holder said he didn’t remember talking to any White House officials about the failed program but someone within the Department of Justice probably contacted the “appropriate people.” Who those people are, he couldn’t say.”

Is this ANOTHER example of your “superior knowledge”??

And from FoxNews:

““When was anyone in the White House informed of the tactics used under Operation Fast and Furious?” asked Smith, R-Texas.

Holder replied: “I don’t know.””

Really??  Is that YET ANOTHER example of your “superior knowledge”?

Seriously, though.  We have an Attorney General that is contradicting written records of his department, IN TESTIMONY!!!  When is he going to be tried for PERJURY at the least??

This whole situation is a JOKE!!!  The AG can LIE to Congress and get away with it….for TWO YEARS??  This better get RESOLVED or it is the end of our Justice System, and probably the end of the United States as we know it.

Fast and Furious, and MY challenge to “Democrats”….

January 31, 2012

By now you should have heard about Operation Fast and Furious conducted by the Department of Justice (Eric Holder), the State Department (Hillary Clinton), the Department of Homeland Security (Janet Napolitano), the FBI, ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives) and other Government organizations.

Sharyl Attkisson with CBS News has done a great job documenting the scandal, so if you would like more information, her page is a great place to start.

Now we get this from the Democrats investigating the scandal:

“”It is clear that ATF agents in Phoenix and prosecutors in the Arizona U.S. Attorney’s Office embarked on a deliberate strategy not to arrest suspected straw purchasers while they attempted to make larger cases against higher-level targets,” the report reads.”


“”Although these officials claimed they had no probable cause to arrest any straw purchasers at the time, allowing hundreds of illegally purchased military-grade assault weapons to fall into the hands of violent drug cartels over the course of five years created an obvious and inexcusable threat to public safety on both sides of the border.”(my emphasis)

So, let me get this straight.  Just because some weapons were ILLEGALLY purchased, there was NO PROBABLE CAUSE???  Excuse me!!!  When do we have probable cause??  If something is ILLEGAL, then it is AGAINST the law!!  This has nothing to do with what the definition of is, is!!! 

These are Department of Justice officials.  Their job is to prosecute the LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES………without prejudice!!  They deserve to be fired… a minimum.

Here is MY challenge to the “Democrats” that authored this report.  Fine!!  I will agree with your conclusions.  Now, we need to charge these officials with wrong doing and have a trial.  They BROKE the laws of the United States (by allowing/selling weapons to unauthorized personnel, hence the ILLEGAL purchases) and International law (by allowing those ILLEGALLY purchase weapons to knowingly cross an International border with Mexico).  I want a TRIAL.  IF they are the ones responsible they should end up in JAIL!!  I doubt that this does not go higher into Obama’s Administration, so it will be interesting to see their defense.

What say you, Democrats??  Are we going to have a TRIAL??

Follow up to the Illinois Military NON-Voting Act…

October 26, 2010

Foxnews has just published a story about the settlement reached between Illinois (you know, the place the One is from) and the Department of Justice (you know the Department that the One is in charge of).

You will be happy, NOT, to know that:

“The Justice Department hammered out the court agreement Friday addressing the failure of 35 Illinois counties to send military and overseas absentee ballots 45 days before the election — a requirement of the MOVE Act. The agreement gave voters from six of those counties a few extra days to send back their ballots but did not specifically address the other 29 counties.”

Apparently, military votes are unimportant to the powers that be. Another quote from the article:

“”It’s just the wrong message to send,” Eversole said.”

The message I get from the actions of the NON-Justice Department is this.  It is OK if you BREAK the LAWS, so long as you break them the way WE want them broken.  The LAWS are only for our opponents to abide.  Justice is NOT blind!!

If this is OK for you, just move along, nothing more to see here.  If this is NOT ok, contact YOUR representatives, NOW.  Do it, if you do not, you have no more reasons to complain about the situation.

Foreign Contributions???

October 22, 2010

Illegal Aliens Canvass for Votes in Washington State”.  The following is the lead sentence in the article.

“When Maria Gianni is knocking on voters’ doors, she’s not bashful about telling people she is in the country illegally.”

Just one Question.  Does this count as one of those Foreign Contributions that The One, “The Sheriff” Biden and others on the left were talking about??

Hey Holder.  DO YOUR JOB!!
