Skip to comments.Reported that GOP leaders succumb to race card, will end Fast and Furious investigation (NOT!)

We want to let them know that there is a theological responsibility (emphasis added) to participate in the political process said House Congressional Black Caucus chair, Emanuel Cleaver of a meeting with hundreds of black Pastors representing various denominations in the U.S. Speaking to MSNBC, the congressman added were going to have the IRS administrator there, were going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, were going to have the lawyers organization from around the country, the ACLU all giving Ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do. (1)
Of course Cleaver was referring to guidance in the ways churches can participate in the 2012 election without violating IRS rules concerning their tax exempt status. Naturally this has always been of GREAT concern to black Pastors, especially nowadays given the sterling record of unbiased enforcement built by the scrupulously law abiding Attorney General.
Yet even while absorbed with their tax code responsibilities, the attending Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights found time to address a letter to House Speaker John Boehner concerning the harsh treatment of Attorney General Holder by some of the Speakers fellow Republicans. Consisting of labor unions, homosexual groups, black ministers, the NAACP and even an Arab anti-discrimination organization, the Conference believe citing Holder with contempt for his disregard of House subpoenas in the Fast and Furious affair is unwarranted. In fact, its a downright partisan attempt to discredit the Attorney General, a heinous example of accusatory vitriol and malignant suspicion and a rush to judgment intended to create a stain on the office of the Attorney General.

But according the man who broke the Gunwalker story a year and a half ago, threatening letters to Speaker Boehner might no longer be necessary. Sources in Washington, DC have told blogger and citizen reporter Mike Vanderboegh that Republican leaders have already decided to close down the Fast and Furious investigation and halt contempt proceedings against Eric Holder, because they (the GOP leadership) dont think that they will suffer for [that] failure to follow through. Theyre scared of Holders race card. . . theyre scared of Trayvon. They think if they let Issa fail, that it will only be a story in the blogosphere for a day . . . that they can weather it. . . . Unfortunately, Vanderboegh makes it clear that he trusts the word of these sources implicitly. 3.
In short, John Boehner and other Republican big wigs are more afraid of the race card and its steady play by the Obama-owned national media than of the bitter yet presumably briefdisappointment of conservatives, disgusted because the GOP has once again opted for the cowardly betrayal of justice and of the Party base.
If Vanderboeghs sources are correct, hundreds of innocent people will have died, Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata will have been shot to death, the Obama Regime will have launched a brutal and deadly assault on the 2nd Amendment, yet all will be forgiven and forgotten in the name of political expedience.
Vanderboegh was certainly right about Boehners work to delay Representative Darrell Issas contempt proceedings against Holder. We should all hope his sources have gotten this one wrong.

"Run! Run! Run! As fast as you can! You can't catch me! I'm the Gunwalker Man!"
Holder’s ‘black pastor’ charade was done for the sole purpose of bolstering his race card protection against impeachment for ‘Fast & Furious’. End of story.
Any third party in the works must have in its bylaws that each, and every member will be sworn to allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America, or not permitted entry to the party. The bylaws will be enforced.
The Republican Party has seen its day.
Maybe then Mexico can drag that POS before the world court, it would be a nice fall back card.
John Boenhner’s office
I called, spent 20 minutes on hold due to “high call volume”. Make his phones ring off the hook. He and other leaders in the GOP need to know we are watching this very carefully, and we will hold them accountable for any failure to set things right.
I knew this was coming.......SOB’s see tag.
They have tried everything to divert attention from F&F. Something tells me F&F is a lot more serious than we are being told. I will have to hear it from Issa to believe it.
What kind a stupid title is this? The title would seem to indicate that the contempt proceeding are continuing as indicated previously.
However the whole article describes how racist Holder & his whole slew of racist, bigoted fellow "Pastors" (in name only) seem to be successfully putting pressure on cowardly Boehner & other cowardly Rinos to halt the contempt proceedings.
So what is it? Are the contempt proceedings continuing or not? Like I said, the title & the article seem to contradict each other.
With worthless neutered “leadership” like Boehner and McConnel you are correct.
The Pubbies are NOT conservatives, f.em.
200 Dead Mexican citizens...and Erick Holder doesn't give a danm!
Maybe the GOP strategists just suffer from terminal stupidity, also known as advanced McCainitis.
If this turns out to be true, it proves - once again - that John Boehner is a weeping, sniveling, craven COWARD.
