Rep. Joe Walsh to Eric Holder: ‘Resign immediately and take responsibility’ for Fast & Furious
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/26/2011 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 10/26/2011 2:05:21 PM PDT by martosko

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh joined the small but growing choir of members of Congress calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over Operation Fast and Furious. Walsh is the fourth member of Congress to make the call for Holder to resign. Republican Reps. Raul Labrador of Idaho, Blake Farenthold of Texas and Paul Gosar of Arizona have each publicly asked Holder to step aside as well.

Walsh made the demand in a letter he sent Holder on Wednesday.

How outrageous that these Progressive punks would think up such a scam to grease their anti-gun legislation;
absolutely outrageous.

IMHO

Now the other 230 or so Repub congress critters need to grow some balls, quit worrying about their DC social status and issue a demand from the entire House GOP (plus any so-called Blue dog demoRATs) for Eric Holder to resign immediately. There is absolutely no doubt that if this were a Repub administration and AG, the calls for impeachment from the socialist RAT bastard demoRAT lefties & their media whores, would be deafening by now. And most likely there would be increasing demands that a Repub president should resign as well. But since this is demoRATs & even more so, liberal socialist blacks (Holder & 0dumb0), the Repubs as a whole are scared to death of calling for the impeachment or resignation of either one of these two socialist RAT bastard commie pigs. A trial and conviction & the gallows should be next on the agenda for both of them, for treason and accomplices in the murder of 2 border patrol agents.

What he's saying is:

Well he's tellin' us this
And he's tellin' us that
Changes it every day
Say's it doesn't matter
Bases are loaded and Casey's at bat
Playin' it play by play
Time to change the batter

Arrest this SOB before he resigns. He has violated so many laws that we would be jailed for committing. Holder’s actions are NOT politics as usual.

0bungles knew that Holder didn't know before Holder knew that he didn't know.

How Did Obama Know About "Fast and Furious" Before Holder?

And then there is this...

"Grenade-walking" part of "Gunwalker" scandal

And this...

Worse Than Gunwalker? State Dept. Allegedly Sold Guns to Zetas

Phil Jordan, a former CIA operative and one-time leader of U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center, claims that the Obama administration is running guns to the violent Zetas cartel through the direct commercial sale of military grade weapons:

Jordan, who served as director of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s El Paso Intelligence Center in 1995, said the Zetas have shipped large amounts of weapons purchased in the Dallas area through El Paso.

(snip)

“They’ve found anti-aircraft weapons and hand grenades from the Vietnam War era,” Plumlee said. Other weapons found include grenade launchers, assault rifles, handguns and military gear including night-vision goggles and body armor.

More about State Department involvement...

— has sources claiming “Obama’s man in the State Department,” (former) Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg, was the State Department operative who helped Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General David Ogden formulate the strategy that led to the tactics used in Operation Fast and Furious.

Steinberg took office as Deputy Secretary of State on January 28, 2009

A little more than two years later, it was announced that Steinberg's time in the Obama State Department was over. From the New York Times, 30 March 2011:

Mrs. Clinton heaped praise on Mr. Steinberg, describing him as an “indispensable” partner. “On every foreign policy challenge, big and small, he has helped formulate our policy and oversee its execution,” she wrote. Mr. Steinberg, she said, played “Oscar to Jack Lew’s Felix,” referring to Jacob J. Lew, her other deputy, who left earlier this year to become Mr. Obama’s budget director.

Sipsey Street Exclusive: "In at the beginning." The State Department & the Gunwalker Scandal.

Which comes to this...

Grassley to ask for resignation of highest-level person who signed off on Fast and Furious

Which just doesn't seem like enough.

Why not resign and go to jail. Liberals never go to jail for their crimes. That’s why they keep on being criminals.

The Republicans are too stupid and spineless to understand that most of the citizens of the US would support them in their punishment of these criminals. We want to see them treated with the same harshness that we would receive if we had done this sort of thing. The country would be behind them, but they just don’t get it. We hate wimps.

I don’twant Holder to resign and take the rap.

I want him to stay right where he is and drag Obma out the door with him.

Obama is the head of this scheme, perhaps on orders from Soros.

He will. The DOJ is just trying to figure out how to wall off Obama from Holder.

There is no flipping way that Holder didn’t know about this. On something this big and international to boot, he would absolutely have to know.

And approve it.

I have a rusty sword I’d loan Mr. Holder if he wanted to fall on it.
Course I’d need a note of the loan so I could retrieve it after he fell on it.
HEY, it’s a thought.

My suggested comment to Janet earlier:

“Madam Secratary, we’re going to get you and the A.G. in these chambers, and we’re going to determine whether you’re both incompetent, or liars, or both!”

Not only No, HELL NO!!!

I do not want Holder to resign and conveniently give the Democrats "cleavage and closure" on this. Can't anyone just imagine how the MSM would treat ANY future revelations regarding Fast & Furious if he did?

"That's old business! Holder's gone! Move on! Yada, yada, yada..."

As despicable as Holder is, and Dear God knows he is, he's just a single putrid pimple on this disgusting mess. I don't want resignations, I want continued investigations leading to indictments, impeachments, convictions and imprisonments!

We are by no means even close to plumbing the depths of this monstrosity.

See post #12 and tell me Hillary Clinton doesn't know all about it too.

My suspicion is that Hillary came up with the idea passed it on to Valerie Jarret and 0bungles set the wheels in motion. Eric The Coward is just the lackey and the firewall. (all my speculation)

“Liberals never go to jail for their crimes.”

We are truly occupied by a foreign power.
