Obama DOJ to federal judge: Letís keep this James Rosen warrant between us, OK?
Canada Free Press ^ | 06-01-2013 | Dan Calabrese

Posted on 06/01/2013 11:05:55 AM PDT by Kevin in California

The entire pretext by which the Obama Justice Department justified spying on James Rosen was flimsy enough. They trumped up the notion that they might charge him as a criminal co-conspirator to justify the warrant that allowed them to read his e-mails and access his phone records. This was always absurd, based on ridiculous notions about how Rosen approached his reporting work.

Why this racist Holder is not before a grand jury is beyond me.

I believe the next visit to Congress will be a fascinating thing. He can repeat his story of “I don’t know”, but they will tear him up. I think, based on the schedule....he knows that he’s clear now until after the summer vacation period. So figure September will be the next visit. I suspect he will resign by that point, and walk out the front door. The next guy will have to pick up the mess and carry on.

The dangerous ignorance here about journalism and the First Amendment is astounding. The implication is that if reporters sit at their desks and wait for the mail to deliver secrets, that’s fine.

I think we see right here exactly how the White House WANTS journalism to be done -- you sit at your desk, we will send you press releases, you publish the stuff we give you. Everyone wins: you have the easiest job in the world (and access to swanky parties) and we control the message available to the voting public.

And this is really how journalism has been done for the past 5 years or so. But, if a journalist starts asking questions ... well, that kind of suspicious behavior calls for wire-tapping and search warrants, naturally. Nip it in the bud, Andy.

Listened to Greta VanSusteren’s program the other night. She said she knew of Holder’s past performance as a Judge. He was very well respected and fair. What happened?

I never expected much from him; but, when he tossed out the case against the Black Panthers who were obviously intimidating voters at a polling place, when they had all they needed for a conviction, I knew he was a racially motivated individual and not at all concerned about the rule of law. Great person for the country's Attorney General.

I think they should consider Impeaching this federal judge. It is his job to make sure the government follows the constitution and protects the interests of the people.
Having an overzealous law enforcement agency kept in check is precisely his function in this case.

He has had a number of cases where he has made questionable decisions, but this one shows that he is just a rubber stamp for the government.

Does anyone not think that the WHOLE of Fox News wasn’t targeted here?

I had the thought last night that I’d bet that Andrew Breitbart was target #1 for the IRS, FBI, EPA, DOJ goons.

When will we find out that the DOJ tapped his phones and tailed him? When will we find out that some judge hid the warrants?

Rosen (respectfully)was a small fish. Breitbart was the big dog.

yes, they were looking for other information on Fox. Believe me, the White House would love for Rosen to waste all his time on stupid North Korea stories.What they probably wanted to know was what Fox had on Fast & Furious.

IF it is true that Holder was a fair and well-respected judge -- which I seriously doubt -- then Obama's brazen power and Chicago Thug influence must be to blame.

In the absence of a big surprise, this will lead to impeachment hearings in the House. And, it wouldn’t surprise me that the Obama Administration is orchestrating this so as to make Holder into O.J. and polarize the U.S. on the basis of race, for political purposes. If Fast and Furious wasn’t enough, in terms of lying to Congress, the Obama Administration moved to another level of affront to the U.S. Constitution. Thinking this through, the House should deny funding to the Justice Department until Holder is gone. I think that would be easier to do than to rely on a 2/3 majority in the Senate.

Holder should have been removed from office for failure to prosecute the panthers.

That decision was purely racial.

Holder is the one who promoted the pardon of Puerto Rican terrorists.

So they lied to a judge to scam the system so they could spy on Rosen based on a criminal charge they knew was false and that they would never pursue? Or something like that?

I asked that a few months ago. She's been quiet far too long. Something's up.

It looks like she’s staying away from DC. I would guess she and Obama will meet up in Chicago at one of their “thug” hideaways.

One has to wonder what degree of scrutiny is being given to input to Glenn Beck and Rush from the WH operatives. Mega!

We haven’t heard anything about those being disclosed in any 30 days, either, have we?
