Breaking on Fast and Furious: Holder to appear before Issa's committee on Feb. 2
Big Government ^ | 1/4/12 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 01/04/2012 11:42:02 AM PST by Nachum

I just received an email update from Congressman Darrell Issa’s (R-CA) office, stating that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is scheduled to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on February 2. The questions will center on the Department of Justice’s knowledge of, and response to, the gunwalking tactics that were used in Operation Fast and Furious. The A.G. will also be asked to address the DOJ’s “steadfast refusal to disclose information following the February 4, 2011 letter to Senator Grassley, which the [DOJ] has withdrawn because it contained false information denying allegations made by whistleblowers about Operation Fast and Furious.”

Holder will never show. He’ll discover that it’s a national holiday and back out, claiming he wants to appear and will reschedule at a later date. Don’t call him. He’ll call Congress.

Oh no. That’s not his style. He’ll show. Then he will obfuscate, meander, deny and accuse.

This is just one more meaningless dog and pony show. How many committees has there been already? What is one more going to do? The answer is NOTHING!

I believe our government is failing right before our eyes and “the people” either are too dumbed down by public education or the media to do anything about it. Unless Holder gets arrested or thrown out of office right soon, I’m done thinking there can be justice in America’s system when the head of Justice Department is corrupt and apparently “untouchable”.

When the government breaks the law, then there isn’t any law. Only a fight for survival.

Good for Issa
Keep this issue out there which forces medai to give some coverage
then Pubs can keep hammering home what a vile plan this was and how many people have died because of holder. Odumbo’s hate of the 2nd amendment

You’re probably right, but I couldn’t pass up a chance to take him to task.

I have no faith in these hearings at all though.

Obama will have to can him, for him to go. I don’t see that happening, but who knows.

All the Clinton hearings left me jaded.

Go Issa! Don't quit! Just keep on beating this thing!

Beat it until the MSM and the DemonRat Party are sick and tired of hearing about it. Then beat it some more. Beat it until the average American finally awakens from his slumber and looks around and him says: "Huh? Fast and Furious? What's all that about?". Then keep on beating.

Beat up Holder until he's holding is hollow head in his hands. Then beat up Obama. Keep beating Obama until he thinks his head is a bongo drum. Then beat him some more.

The way to turn the obfuscations and coverups on these crooked creeps is to make the process so protracted and painful they dread the arrival of every new day. Then they will start to turn on each other. Then keep on beating.

Let's have some fun with this!

I saw Romeny on GMA this morning (had sound off, closed captioning on) and he said he expected the attacks on him would now come “fast and furious”. I liked that, though I can’t support him.

holder will show, arrogantly testify (not under oath) once again, enjoy the cover of the dems on the committee, and nothing at all will come of it. All show, no go.

You mean really raise his hand and swear to tell the truth? Didn’t he refuse to be sworn in because, “I’m here to tell the truth, not testify.” (paraphrased). This guy is the WORST Atty General modern times. Worse than John Mitchell.

"How many committees has there been already? What is one more going to do? The answer is NOTHING!"

Hey, why act so defeated? Why be so negative? That's no fun at all!

The thing to do is to keep pushing, keep fighting, never quit! Keep beating the crap out of these commie crooks with whatever corruption we can uncover. Have some fun with it. Lets' rumble! Don't worry about the outcome. They want you to give up. They want you to think the battle can't be won.

Winners never quite and whiners never win. Let's keep on fighting. Don't worry about the outcome. The fun is in kicking as much ass as you can while the fight is on.

You've got the right idea. Besides, this is an investigation and Grassley and Issa have been treating it as one and it has probably moved along faster than most comparable investigations.

There really isn't much comparable to what it is they've found though. When you have the ATF, FBI, DEA, BP, ICE, IRS, CIA and DOJ all taking some part it might take a little time to connect the dots and root out the key connections.

If they want to put on a spectacle for nothing other than entertainment and publicity purposes, that's their business. If you want to watch, that's your business. I don't want to waste my time with such nonsense. When people are ready to pick up their rifles and put on a real fight, I'll be ready.

that would be nice, huh??

I bet he sneers and calls all the pubs ‘racist’ and then walks out.

An honest man and a true servant to his president and his country would be OUTRAGED that an operation like this was conducted during his oversight...the fact that he first says he ‘didn’t know’ and then STILL doesn’t show any inclination to expose the evil-doers or conduct a thorough housecleaning, and then dares to snipe back at the ‘politically motivated investigators’...well, that speaks volumes.

He won’t kick butt because, probably, a. he doesn’t see the ‘problem’ and b. the scapegoats could put him in jail for 100 years if he turns on them.

He is an example of the end product of liberalism and progressivism, and is too obtuse to realize that everyone in the world can see he is a lying POS.

His ass is showing, his shoe is dragging toilet paper, and his fly is down, but he refuses to admit he was just in the men’s room..

The State Department is tangled up in it too, through Operation Castaway (Honduras).

Yes, you’re right and Grenade Walker is also very much a State Dept. hot potato. Castaway was actually another ATF operation but all of these arms running ops have State Dept. implications simply because of the transfer of arms into foreign countries.

In a jail cell, Obama is Holder’s bitch, for a change.
