(CNSNews.com) Embattled Attorney General Eric Holder told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that he has stuck by my guns during his time in office.
Ive enjoyed my time as attorney general, he told the panel. Its been a tough job. It is one that takes a lot out of you. Some raised concerns as to whether I was tough enough for this job. I think that people will hopefully see that Ive done this job in a way that is consistent with our values.
He was responding to Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.) who asked Holder if he would consider serving a second term as attorney general if Obama is reelected.
I stuck by my guns, Holder continued. Ive been criticized a lot for the positions that Ive taken. Ive lost some. Ive won more than Ive lost. Im proud of the work that Ive done. More important, Im proud of the 116,000 people in this United States Department of Justice. This has been the highlight of my career to have been the attorney general of the United States, to work with you all and to serve this president. What my future holds, frankly, Im just not sure.
The House Oversight and Government Reform committee, which has been investigating the Justice Departments involvement in a gunrunning operation dubbed Fast and Furious, plans to vote June 20 on whether to hold Holder in contempt of Congress for failing to provide more than 100,000 subpoenaed documents pertaining to the botched gun sting.
As part of Fast and Furious, a Justice Department program that began in September 2009, law enforcement knowingly allowed about 2,000 U.S. guns to flow to Mexican drug cartels, with the intent of tracking the weapons and making arrests. However, law enforcement lost track of most of the weapons.
The program was halted in December 2010 after two weapons from the program were found at the murder scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
poor choice of wording
No, no, you didn’t stick by your guns. You gave them to criminals.
“I stuck by my guns” heh heh
Holder, you can stick something and put it somewhere.
sounds like a resignation speech.
Eric - resign in disgrace because that is what you are.
Not by my count....you lose every time.
I stuck by my guns — very fast and very furious.
Sounds like a bitter clinger.
By "our" he means the New Black Panther Party (a melanin enhanced subsidiary of the Communist Party USA).
Remember BO’s definition of “sin”?
“Sin is... being out of alignment with my values.”
That is VERY VERY telling.
Killing all those people in Waco was really draining......................
If he had he would be down there in Mexico where his guns went.
Stick a fork in him, he’s done.
Send ole Sticky Fingers down to Mexico to personally retrieve the guns he had walked.
failing to provide more than 100,000 subpoenaed documents . . .
I'm seeing a pattern here. He made each one of those poor employees eat a subpoenaed doc. That's why he's so proud of them. I'll bet some were 50 pages long!
Don’t forget the OKC connection.
I don’t know. I think Holder wins every time he faces Congress, lies his heart out, and walks away instead of being cuffed and Frog-marched to the nearest Federal Prison.
By "our" he means the New Black Panther Party
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
Shock Photos: Candidate Obama Appeared And Marched With New Black Panther Party in 2007:
"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."
One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.
As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other, the witness told Fox News at the time. So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said theyd been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.
He said the man with a nightstick told him, Were tired of white supremacy, and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, OK, were not going to get in a fistfight right here, and I called the police....

How about this: “I stuck by my glue!”
"During the 1970s and 1980s, FALN members set off at least 138 bombs in five major U.S. Cities. Six Americans were killed in those attacks. One of those bombings, in January 1975, was at the historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan while patrons were at lunch. The explosion killed four and injured more than 50."
"Fraunces Tavern is a restaurant and museum in lower Manhattan, New York City. It was built on the site of a former building which played a significant role in pre-Revolutionary activities, and in which, on 4 December 1783, General George Washington bade farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolution, before returning to his home, Mount Vernon."
"Between 1974 and 1985 the FALN (Puerto Rican Armed Forces of National Liberation) organized 120 terrorist bombings in the United States. Many Americans were killed in those bombings, and many more were crippled. In 1983, another Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the Macheteros, attacked and robbed a Wells Fargo armored car in Connecticut. The Macheteros intended to use the money to finance a terrorist campaign against the United States. Working under the cover of Puerto Rican nationalism and claiming to act on behalf of the 'oppressed people of Puerto Rico,' the FALN and the Macheteros are nothing but Communist revolutionaries. Both groups were organized by Fidel Castro's secret police. The ultimate goal of the FALN and the Macheteros is the creation of an independent Marxist-Leninist dictatorship on the island of Puerto Rico."
Eric Holder's role in the pardons of BLA (Black Liberation Army) comrades/Weather Underground members, Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans (1983 Brinks Truck robbery and triple murder):
Eric Holder stuck to his guns!Gee. I thought his guns went to Mexico where they were used in the murder of a Border Patrol agent.
Holder, you stick to nothing.
But, it appears that lots of stuff is sticking to you.
Shove it, Holder.
You’ve got the IQ of the president...sorry for the insult.
Holder, you stupid black bigot, the only thing you stuck to were was criminal element like the New Black Panthers and the rest of “your people” when it came to giving cover to any and every kind of illegality. GTFO now.
Doesn't that sound like a farewell speech?
If this were true you'd be laying next to them.
“I stuck by my guns heh heh”
I’d prefer he stuck by my gun rights. When piggies fly. Sigh.
And it smells like a presidential pardon is in the works.
He’s talking about his tenure in the past tense already. Sign that resignation is imminent?
Living a lie is hard work.
Well, I guess you could say that Holder is in a Mexican standoff.
(But when, EVER; does a Liberal stick to the 'truth' of the matter. Truth never serves these people-of-the-lie and never will.)
“”Im proud of the 116,000 people in this United States Department of Justice””
We could probably get rid of half of those and perhaps have a functioning department. I’m not impressed with the number of staff people he has but I guess it gives him a thrill. Too bad the rest of us aren’t as thrilled. Too many memories of this jerk from Elian Gonzalez days!
I’ll put my money on Mr. Holder resigning over the weekend in an attempt to limit media coverage. It will be played as somehow ending a distraction for his boss, and suggest acusations against him are racially motivated.
Question I’ll end up with is whether or not an investigation can continue (as it should).
Well there's your problem.
Great choice of words there sparky.
