Skip to comments.The Fast And The Spurious Forever: Eric Holder’s Excellent Adventure
Posted on 06/13/2012 6:34:52 AM PDT by IbJensen
Although it strains credulity farther than a White House Press briefing, Eric Holder remains the Attorney General of the United States. Furthermore, despite Holders central role in a scandal that involved shockingly bad decision-making, an overt hostility to the Bill of Rights, Mexican narcoterrorists and the murders of two Federal agents and an unknowable number of innocent Mexican nationals, Holder continues to enjoy the full faith and credit of the President of the United States. Granted, the full faith and credit of the biggest buffoon to sit in the Oval Offices big boy chair since Jimmy Carter lusted in his heart is about as valuable as a fistful of Greek drachmae. Nonetheless, the fact that Holder hasnt been reduced to advertising on bus stop benches for slip-and-fall cases is an affront to every American wise enough to recognize just how far down the rabbit hole Obama has dragged us in three short years.
Late last week, Holder returned to the hot seat in the chambers of Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Confronted with a mountain of evidence proving almost everyone in the Department of Justice chain of command north of the guy who cleans up the cigarette butts President Barack Obama leaves behind after his visits knew about the disastrous gunwalking Operation Fast and Furious at least a year before any details of the scandal came to light, Holder stuck to his forgive me guns.
Under pressure from a righteously outraged Issa, Holder continued to pretend he was on the straight and narrow. We believe that we have responded to the subpoena, Holder said. At the moment he made that remark, Holders Department of Justice had failed to comply with nearly two dozen aspects of the subpoena in question. Responded? Perhaps. Complied which Attorneys General are legally bound to do in the instance of Congressional subpoenas hardly. Of course, Holder is an accomplice of Obama, who has made it clear that he is well above such irritants as Constitutional dictates and the separation of powers.
Most remarkably, Holders Presidentially backed stonewalling is nothing compared to the abject dearth of attention paid to the OFF scandal by the leadership of the liberal horde. Out of curiosity, I dragged a hook through two of the leading liberal hate speech sites, Dailykos and Democraticunderground. Democraticunderground gave OFF passing note, repeating the false notion that OFF is related to the vastly different (and less fatal) George W. Bush-era Operation Wide Receiver. Dailykos, owned by terrorist celebrant and liberal Svengali Markos Moulitsas, remained mum.
Perhaps liberals are avoiding discussion of OFF because its simply too complicated for the sort of folks who vote for people like Obama. The Obama Administration designed a gunrunning operation over the strenuous objections of career agents and gun retailers. The operation itself was designed to create crimes in Mexico which would in turn create the need for a response which would, of course, require the Democrats to take the shears to the 2nd Amendment. Thats a lot to process, especially for the soft-underbelly types who support vermin like Obama and Holder.
But the veneer may be cracking. During last weeks testimony, Holder asserted that the White House had offered advice on how to spin the scandal. On Sunday morning, David Axelrod told CNNs Candy Crowley that no such exchange had taken place. Under normal circumstances, such a discrepancy would hint at a coming pink slip for the embattled Attorney General. Unfortunately, in an Administration that is as comfortable lying as I am pointing out when its doing it, normal circumstances are the exception rather than the rule.
Perhaps that is the greatest lesson Holder and Obama will teach us during their disgraceful tenure in the uppermost branches of the Washington tree. When the usual race-baiting, distraction and even killing (sorry, Agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata) fail, lie.
The liberal and dysfunctional and irrational minds cant cope with reality. After all, they consider our buffoon-in-chief some sort of god, the economy improving, and Holder beyond reproach.
I thought I saw a droplet of sweat rollin down Holders forehead when Issa was turnin up the HEAT! Heat the furnace seven times HOTTER Darrell,
Ill bet they'll have better luck with investigating national security issue leaks with the same misplaced zeal they have demonstrated at suing states over voter id laws and enforcing immigration policies.
The REAL problem is that they never expected to get caught as they are smarter than the citizens. For another, they are certain that all government employees MUST be loyal to them and never, ever release such info to the public
Check to see what happened to those who did tell and what happened to those bosses who gave the orders. One group was promoted and one was fired. Guess which was which.
Eric Holder, as an official of the United States Government, instituted and armed conflict with the soveriegn nation of Mexico with no ones consent. Correct me if I am wrong but should he not be tried for Treason and disposed of in some manner?
Eric holder is but one more nail being driven into the political coffin of this administration of the undead!!!!
Here's an idea: Let's extradite him to Mexico for crimes against Mexican citizens. The thought of Holder, (and his buddy, Obama) rotting away in a Mexican prison seems about right.
Why is Holder being stubborn about this beyond the point of reason & beyond what is going to be self-preservation in the long, long run? Because this stinking mess goes all the way to the top. If not Obama himself, more importantly I would bet Voldemort Jarrett is in it up her Commie eyeballs and you do not cross her under any circumstances .... she is the one who wears the pants in the WH & she is the one to be feared. The national security leaks are going to be interesting, too .... that goes to the top & somebody is going to get thrown under the bus, run over, backed over, then run over again. As Lannie Davis said, there are some “vicious” people in this administration.
"Perhaps that is the greatest lesson Holder and Obama will teach us during their disgraceful tenure in the uppermost branches of the Washington tree. When the usual race-baiting, distraction and even killing (sorry, Agents Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata) fail, lie."
No comment necessary. Ping.
I would say that Jimmy Carter lusted in his heart, but felt deep malaise about it afterwards.
Mexico is in on it too, they won’t do anything to Holder. Disarmament of US citizens is a priority, worth any number of dead Mexican citizens.
