EH already said it was gonna be a Constitutional Crisis...I believe that’s what they want...These people are so dangerous they’d burn the house down with the kids in it to save their own a$$e$! I can see the race riots being stoked as this plays on.
Krauthammer spoke on the Obama Admin’s failure to uphold the Constitution of the United States.
In case you get a break in the action anytime this morning, here’s a link to the live feed of the hearing...
I agree. They’re willing to go to the mattresses for Obama and give up the constitution, our laws, and our way of life to protect this fabulist.
Quigley is iether stone-cold stupid or a damn liar.
Desjarais my new congressman..4th district TN..
our area was gerrymandered into his ditrict...
our first primary will be in August...
I dont know if Ill be voting for him...
hes disappointing on veterans...
Yes, FNC is positing that this will backfire on the R’s due to the economy being so bad and all, and pointed out that Zero has much higher approval ratings than Congress. (Or at least the liberal historian Douglas Brinkley did in one segment) One reason Congresses’ approval rating is so low is their hesitancy to reign in the executive branch which is blatantly subverting the Constitution. They are now on track to fulfill their role; whether they follow thru or not is unknown at this point. If they do, I would expect their approval ratings to spike. And what is the alternative, let them expand their totalitarian rule? That is unacceptable. Further, this will give those undecided idiots something to think about: What might this regime do with another four yrs of rule?
Ewww. Who’s the weenie beta male from Vermont?
Get ‘em, Gowdy!!! LOVE this guy.
After McCain made that townhall comment that America had nothing to fear of an Obama presidency, I lost all doubt that he (McCain) was not interested in winning. He was wayyyyy too enthralled with Obama to mount a serious challenge.
YOU GO GOWDY!!!
Check out the pic Drudge just put up. LOL!
My crush on Trey Gowdy just grew..
He’s on fire!! The RATS better be shaking in their birkenstocks
He is on fire speaking the truth.
The assertion of executive privilege raises monumental questions. How can the President assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement? How can the President exert executive privilege over documents he's supposedly never seen? Is something very big being hidden to go to this extreme? The contempt citation is an important procedural mechanism in our system of checks and balances. The questions from Congress go to determining what happened in a disastrous government program for accountability and so that it's never repeated again.
Obstructor of Justice Holder is far more evil than any Bulger.
The DOJ has lost all respect by honest people.
Lugar is gone..thanks to fellow Hoosiers.
BaROCK needs to remember “It’s the cover up, stupid!”
Gowdy is awesome!
If we had an assault weapons ban this would not be an issue!
- - - - -
Ummm...Mr. Connoly, the weapons that were sold WERE ALREADY BANNED and confiscated by the US Gov’t under those bans.
OK. I have a crush on Gowdy. ;-)
Yep, both of my Georgia RINOs made the list.
Thanks MM for all the “contempt/executive priviledge pings.
I’m still trying to figure out what happened. Had Bozo’s EP announcement been planned for the day of the contempt hearing? as a last-ditch effort to stop the contempt vote?
Then why wasn’t the appropriate letter sent to Issa’s committee? During the hearing, Issa said he received nothing except word from the Deputy Atty Gen that Obama was asserting executive privilege. Issa said he needs a log of what documents Obama is claiming EP over.
OT: mamelukesabre, you will appreciate this in light of your post (#38)
When the EP news came across the wires, I was flipping through channels looking for coverage. I had the hearing taping on C-SPAN3. CNN broadcast some of the live hearing, and I presume they announced the EP news, but if they did, it was ever so briefly because when I flipped back to CNN they were broadcasting a segment asking the question: Did Sarah Palin “poison the well” for all future women Pres candidates?
Can’t make this stuff up.
BTW: this thread has also been covering the live hearing
My TN RINOS Alexander and Corker also voted for comfirmation of Holder...
Ive never voted for either of them...
"...Ya know, there's been a tendency on the part of this administration to, to try to hide behind executive privilege every time there's something, uhhhh, a little shaky that's taken place... and, ya know, I think the administration would be best served by coming clean on this, uhhhh, there, there doesn't seem to be any national security uhhh, issues involved with the US Attorney, uhhhh, uhhhh, question..."
when I flipped back to CNN they were broadcasting a segment asking the question: Did Sarah Palin poison the well for all future women Pres candidates?
Cant make this stuff up.
Nor did CNN make up the Q...
The accusation came for the Romney campaign...
They had been asked about whether there might a woman VP..
The Romney camp was saying why there would not be one on the GOP ticket...
Seems like so long ago:
My Administration is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government. We will work together to ensure the public trust and establish a system of transparency, public participation, and collaboration. Openness will strengthen our democracy and promote efficiency and effectiveness in Government.
Government should be transparent. Transparency promotes accountability and provides information for citizens about what their Government is doing. Information maintained by the Federal Government is a national asset. My Administration will take appropriate action, consistent with law and policy, to disclose information rapidly in forms that the public can readily find and use. Executive departments and agencies should harness new technologies to put information about their operations and decisions online and readily available to the public. Executive departments and agencies should also solicit public feedback to identify information of greatest use to the public.
Thank you for posting that, I was thinking about it earlier.
Now, question... will Dems on committee refuse to come to committee room to vote after floor votes done, a la the Wisconsin rats?
Really!!!??? Missed that part. Thanks for the context. I can’t even come up with an appropriate comment; my eyes just roll into the back of my head.
I was just thinking of that too..can they refuse to show up??
I know they don’t give a damn but won’t that look worse if they run from the vote?
Wednesday, June 20, 2012Holder just keeps dancing. He needs to go. America deserves better. Liar in DOJ exposes himself by changing testimony.
The Justice Department has retracted a second statement made to the Senate Judiciary Committee. During a hearing last week, Attorney General Eric Holder claimed that his predecessor, then-Attorney General Michael Mukasey, had been briefed about gunwalking in Operation Wide Receiver.
Yup, and I almost hope they do something supremely stupid like that; just to see how far the MSM will go, burrowing their heads up the arses of the Zero admin officials, to protect them from more public outrage.
Can’t have a non-’pesthood’ holder as VP, it would ruin the prophecy...
Gaveled back in...
“Yeah, and those of us amongst the unwashed masses are tired of that excuse. No one cares and no one believes it.
They really need to find another excuse.”
They are long past the time that the 2nd letter should have been tendered, read, and acted upon.
Letter 1....Blame your predecesor
Yeah, well, Holder will resign and that will be the end of it. Then the RINOs will vote to confirm another Holder.
its Bushs fault !!!
