Pajamas Media ^ | September 23, 2010

Posted on 09/23/2010 4:07:37 PM PDT by jazusamo

In an exclusive obtained by Pajamas Media.com, Rep.  Frank Wolf (R-VA) has warned Attorney General Eric Holder not to interfere with the decision of Christopher Coates to testify before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights tomorrow, citing the federal “1912 Anti-Gag Legislation and Whistleblower Protection Laws for Federal Employees.” Click here, or on image below, to read the PDF file of Rep. Wolf’s letter to the attorney general:

And for background on Coates’ appearance tomorrow before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, read Hans A. von Spakovsky’s article at PJM, “Coates’ Direct Eyewitness Testimony to Shine Light on DOJ.”

Holder is already in the hole. He best put the shovel down and stand clear.

Just the likelyhood of republicans taking over the house and maybe the senate is already having its effect and we are starting to see cojones growing before our eyes. There is so much dem dirt to investigate its dizzying.

I looked earlier on C-Span schedule and USCCR and couldn’t find a thing about it being televised.

The hearing is supposed to begin at 9:30 Eastern.

Coates was transferred to the SC DOJ office when he and Adams were subpoenaed by the USCCR. I don't know if that was considered a demotion or not but I'd bet Coates was not happy about it.

I don’t know if it was a demotion but he was transferred.

Kinda like being sent to Siberia.

Very good from everything I’ve read.

The linked piece in the article above, “Coates’ Direct Eyewitness Testimony to Shine Light on DOJ” is a very good piece and covers some of that.

Bob Woodward’s new book exposes the shocking revelation that Obama feels that we, the United States “can absorb another terrorist attack.”

Well, I say the the USA has already absorbed a terrorist attack, within the White House, on Wall Street and Main Street, and to the Democrat party. That terrorist is Barack Hussein Obama. And Holder is one of his chief accomplices.

With defenders of justice like Holder, why don’t we just turn over the keys to criminals, thugs and terrorists?

Boils my blood.

If someone could convince Arizona/ Brewer to challenge Holder’s/Obamama’s authoity/eligibility to sue Arizona a la the video documenting Pelosi’s scam about POTUSA certification as to Constitutional eligibility, there might be a two for go situation.

Not a shot through the jib. More like a boot up the ass (ala Toby Keith).

Wolf doesn’t suffer fools at all, and Holder is the biggest fool of all.

Gonna be a bloody November 2nd and the more the merrier.

It’s pretty clear that he is not one of us. By uttering this statement he eschews his oath to defend and protect the Constitution. It is beyond my comprehension why a movement toward impeachment has not manifested. It’s as though he’s inviting another attack. I don’t get it. sd

It’s time to appoint an independent counsel. You can’t expect DOJ to investigate themselves, especially with a probable White House connection.
