The video of Sandy Adams grilling Holder was pulled because it was fake?
Representative Sandy Adam's website ^

Posted on 12/11/2011 4:20:21 PM PST by E. Pluribus Unum

I was about to respond to the thread when the moderator pulled it because the video was "fake."

That video was straight from Representative Sandy Adam's website.

Would a sitting US congressman post a fake video?

I agree - I saw the original thread, went and watched the video on YouTube (and double-checking here, yes, it really was “YouTube”), and as EPU shows here, it indeed came directly from Congresswoman Adams.

That video is a) very newsworthy, b) very valuable to the mission of FR, and c) appears to be very factual.

I ask that the post not only gets re-enabled, but also that it gets placed in “Breaking News”.

Congresswoman Adams rocks - she’s a bulldog for justice!

Sandy Adams rocks!! There were other videos of her serious work going after Napolitano, and Adams has a background that brings a rigid salute. Talk about a questioner with guns.....she’s among the best, and very cool ice. She certainly did rattle the attorney sitting over the AG’s right shoulder, left screen. Whoo Hoo!

Bet it was an error on the pull by the mod, as it is a legitimate film video.

Yeah. It was my thread. I am asking the Administrator for permission to repost that thread. Somebody has issues with his computer and yells “VIRUS” on an IMPORTANT thread and it gets pulled. That was NOT a fake YouTube site. Please allow me to repost. Thanx in advance.

Is it alleged to be a cut and paste mockumentary? She never asked Holder those questions on live TV? If so shame on her for not labeling the video that way and it could be understood why Jim Rob wouldn’t want it trumpeted.

I don’t understand the pulling of that GREAT video at all.

I backtracked and the video is real —I’m totally baffled.

The video appeared as important as anything I’d seen in the Nixon hearings.

HUGELY IMPORTANT.

I’m totally mystified.

Hopefully I will soon get the go-ahead to repost that thread. And as was suggested, I will post it in breaking news. I have NO IDEA why a certain Freeper screamed “VIRUS!” on a LEGIT YouTube video.

Would a sitting senator post a fake video?

Yes.

I remember, back in the 90’s, one senator was giving a standup speech and giving the Republicans hell. It looked very convincing, until Newt refocused the cameras at another angle and showed this Democratic senator speaking to a completely empty senate.

But I don’t think this particular video is fake.

Wow. That was seriously sad—the responses from Eric Holder, the US Attorney General. Did you notice his hands? Those hands have never done a lick of work.

Thank you for posting (reposting) this. I would have never seen it.

Maybe you are confusing the Special Orders speeches that caused Tip O’Neal went to the House and refocused the camera to show that no one was there but the speaker. Sort of like it is most of the time.

None of your random blathering corresponds to reality in any way, shape or form.

Legitimate video. No secondary editing. No shame on anybody. Except maybe you.

LOVED HER GRILLING.
Don’t think it was grandstanding a la Lindsey Graham.

The guy behind him really wanted to jump out of his seat. When the camera is toward Adams it looks like Throat Clearer had gotten up and said something to Holder because when the camera turns around he is in the process of sitting down.

It worked for me just now. Evidently it is getting a lot of traffic.

Or a denial-of-service attack by DOJ.

Watched the video. Looks real to me. There could be some issues with “context” but I do not see how it could be relevant.

Holder was saying “dancing legal weasel words”. Lies.... and more lies.

The only things fake in the video are Holder’s lying answers.

I am sure he has personal gmail email with Obama, Clinton, and Napolitano about F&F too.

Actually (and ironically), Newt was the one who frequently spoke to an empty House before he was Speaker of the House. It was Tip O'Neil who got the CSPAN cameras to turn to show that the chamber was empty at the time. Despite his power as Speaker, Newt did not have the ability to control the cameras in the Senate chamber.

Those Special Orders speeches were killing Tip and his commie butt boys, and he knew it. Those were the days for sure, probably won’t see anything like that again. I ought a $6,000.00 satellite dish so I could watch them. Well I also stole all the stuff because it was not encrypted 35 years ago.
