Posted on 11/20/2008 1:12:42 PM PST by Bill Dupray
This arises out of the Elian Gonzalez mess back in the Clinton years when the boy was forcibly removed from his home at gunpoint by federal agents. Then Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder flatly denied in an interview with Fox News that the child was taken at gunpoint. Judge Andrew Napolitano nails him.

The men in black outside Elian’s home. Spraying teargas on the elderly ladies saying their rosaries that early Saturday morning.
Say it isn't so!
Welcome back to the good ol’ days.
Elian taken at gunpoint?!? Where would people have gotten a whacky idea like that?
Picture? They just won't show it. They can always write that "Some say" it was photoshopped and the clueless Obama fans will believe that.
I do hope that the wimpy Republicans will bring it up at his confirmation hearings.
When you goal is installing rank socialism as the primary way of life in America, you do not need clean, dedicated genius on your staff -— you just need thugs and goons. What better place to get them than the ole Clinton mob?
Even an advanced moron could figure out the Obama strategy now. It is VERY clear.
Nice job for America, libs....
What will happen when this man is AG and, like Janet Reno, orders those troops to open fire like they did at Waco?
The last time you will see an illegal alien so treated under the Obamatron.
Eric Holder and his fellow lowlifes actually used that idea as a pretext to draw up a warrant to get Elian.
And of course Janet Reno wanted the trauma of TV cameras removed from the kid’s life.
Going in with machine guns though to take him back to Cuba, no problem.
The guy with the gun is a photoshop job. The real one was the creepy photo of Janet Reno and Elian....
She’s a man baby.
Maybe I am just dreaming (or is it a nightmare?)
that image is photoshopped. In the original, the JBT had his finger on the trigger.
No THAT’S child abuse and viewer abuse all rolled into one.
....and did he work the Marc Rich and PR Terrorist pardons?
Don't ever let em ketch you limpin. Time to decentralize
Here we go..............
Uh, the boy was not forcably removed from HIS home.

RICH MAY HAVE LIED ON PARDON FORM
NY DAILY NEWS, 11/14/03, BY GREG B. SMITH
The feds have evidence that Democratic fund-raiser Denise Rich violated an immunity arrangement by not telling prosecutors the whole truth during their investigation of Pardongate, sources say.
The sources said federal law enforcement has enough evidence to bring obstruction of justice counts against Rich but that no decision has been made on whether to charge her.
For nearly three years, the feds have been probing how the socialite songwriter's ex-husband, Marc Rich, won a pardon from President Bill Clinton during his last hours in office.
Marc Rich, a multimillionaire fugitive, was charged in 1983 with bilking the federal government of $48 million in income taxes and buying illegal oil from Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis.
Investigators want to know whether Marc Rich illegally funneled donations to Clinton and Democratic causes through his wife in return for the pardon.
Prosecutors from the Manhattan U.S. attorney's office asked a federal judge to order Denise Rich, who admitted lobbying Clinton for the pardon, to answer their questions. She did so, speaking to prosecutors and the FBI during numerous so-called "proffer" sessions in 2001. Under an arrangement with the feds, Rich was granted immunity from prosecution - as long as she told the truth and spilled everything she knew.
Two sources told the Daily News that investigators recently discovered Rich breached that arrangement, either by lying or by not revealing potentially illegal activities she knew about.
During her many sessions with prosecutors, the sources said, Rich talked about her one-on-one discussions with Clinton and about the $1million-plus she raised for Clinton and Democratic causes.
The sources would not say whether Rich discussed her $450,000 donation to the Clinton Presidential Library. Sources say Rich admitted reimbursing several of her employers for their donations to Hillary Clinton's successful campaign for Senate in 1999, a practice that is illegal.
Yesterday Denise Rich's attorney, Thomas Fitzpatrick, said, "I have never heard from the U.S. attorney that she was less than truthful. ... There's no breach of her obligation of truthfulness that I know of." Marvin Smilon, a spokesman for Manhattan U.S. Attorney James Comey, declined to comment.
Oh, yes, the good ol’ days when the U.S. used unlawful force against our own citizens but sent Janet Reno to look for DNA evidence to convict Islamic terrorists in a court of law.
Did he work the FALN terrorist pardon also?
Exactly right. Stock up on ammo. While you can.
Not heard his name mentioned in that-—but it’s possible.
Are we playing “Find the Gun” in the photo?
What gun?!? I don’t see a gun!
Listening to Hugh Hewitt tonight, his friend Lileks was comparing Obama’s campaign to McCain’s and mentioned that even the fonts used by each campaign was indicative of the ability to sell a message. The McCain font was something that was tired twenty years ago, and the Obama font (Lileks knew the names of both) was very exciting.
People don’t understand how many ways we are being persuaded of things every day, but people being paid to sell a candidate should know these things.
