Eric Holder Let Darrell Issa Know Just How Much He Hates Him Today
New York Magazine ^ | 5/15/2013 | Dan Amira

Posted on 05/15/2013 2:23:09 PM PDT by nickcarraway

California congressman Darrell Issa and Attorney General Eric Holder are not friends. Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has pestered Holder about the controversial Fast and Furious gun-walking program for years. His committee even voted to hold Holder in contempt for his refusal to turn over certain documents. During a hearing today, Holder's feelings for Issa burst out into the open when he called the congressman's behavior "unacceptable" and "shameful," and, getting more personal, "too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress."

It seems that Mr. Holder has no respect for the good congressman just as he has no respect for those intimidated by his Black Panther bretheren.

Hopefully, one day, this administration will begin to behave like public servants and not obnoxious revolutionaries.

IMHO

Congressman Issa showed remarkable restraint in dealing with Mr. Holder. Funny how Mr. Holder's behavior was so like Hillary's. Must have been in the talking points: Lie like crazy, have hissy-fit if all else fails. Public tantrums coming from the Secretary of State and the Attorney General are embarrassing to watch and humiliating for our nation.

What is “unacceptable” and “shameful” is the way “My People” Holder has conducted himself by turning the Department of Justice into the ‘Department of Injustice and Racial Revenge’.

Eric holder, the man who refused to prosecute Black Panthers for voter intimidation against whites.

Eric Holder, the man who testified before Congress that whites will not be afforded equal protection under Hate Crime Laws, but “His People” will.

Eric Holder is a Racist, placed into a position of power over all of us by a Racist President and his Racist Administration.

Issa should have slapped that Corrupt DOJ Scoundrel right back, and with interest, and told him to his face exactly what he is. When are the Republicans going to stop taking it, and throw it right back at them?

My congressman is also on the House Oversight Committee. He posted on Four Square that he was getting ready to question Holder again. I commented that he should make sure to leave grill marks.

The conservatives in Congress are throwing it right back at them (Holder)...but on our schedule, not that of the enemy.

And the Left is royally p!ssed off.

As on the Rush thread. Issa may be pushing to hard. If it become personal, the left and media will circle the wagons and defend him.

But to be honest I like terriers. Issa is acting like one who found a badger and won’t let up till he gets it.

Yeap and when the Court rules that the communication between Holder’s office and White hut is ordered to be released to the committee that shows Holder knew, Jarret knew and Nero knew and approved of gun running and their interest to use the deaths as a means to push gun control he will be politically toast.

That is why he is pissed. He thought he could obstruct and not get called out. He knows his days at Justice are numbered if the court forces them to be released. He’s pissed Issa cornered him

"A good sign that Issa is getting into Holder’s head, RENT FREE!"

Be careful Biggirl. Issa, Lebanese, long ago frankly established his admiration for Yasser Arafat and other Jihadist causes and soldiers. . His foot dragging on Benghazi is what one would expect of a Muslim partisan (and I don't know whether Darrel's background is Muslim or Christian; Lebanon once had a Christian majority). Arafat was Egyptian and funded by the Muslim Brotherhood, the same sect that sponsored Obama’s Columbia and Harvard educations, through their legal counsel of four decades, Texan, Berkeley Law School, Khalid al-Monsour, who reported to Alwaleed bin-Talal.

Now many more realize why the media buried the story provided by the most famous black attorney of the twentieth century, Percy Sutton, who defended Malcolm X, Luis Farrakhan, The Muslim Brotherhood, and was Manhattan Borough President for almost a decade. Percy was proud of his help getting Barack into Harvard Law, at the request of al-Mansour, an old, old friend, from the days before Don Warden converted to Wahhabi Islam in the mid 60s and changed his name to Khalid al-Mansour. Percy was good friends of Vernon Jarrett, who also knew al-Mansour, and plugged al-Mansour's Saudi plan to fund the educations of poor black and Hispanic students in a Chicago Tribute story in 1979. The Saudis would provide twenty million dollars for the program. Now we know that al-Mansour/Don Warden, directed the funding of Wahhabi Mosques in the US, and recruitment of Wahhabi Imams from within US prisons. Percy's YouTube interview is inconvenient truth.

Issa is a Muslim Brotherhood supporter, like CIA Director John Brennan, who converted to Wahhabi Islam in the late 90s while he was CIA Chief of Station in Riyadh. Dozens of others in the Obama administration are Muslim Brotherhood supporters. They are masters at deception, as permitted, even required where conversion to Islam is the objective, by the Koran. Who would have thought that CPAC would have a Director, Grover Norquist, who protected Suhail Khan, a CPAC executive, where Khan's mother works for CAIR/Muslim Brotherhood, who is on the ISNA board, and Khan is himself on the board of CAIR, where Norqust’s wife is Muslim, and is almost as active a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood as Obama?

Issa has obstructed the Benghazi hearings, which does not surprise anyone who knows his past.

I've got news for Holder. It's not over.

Soon, a federal judge will hand down a decision on Holder's refusal to comply with the committee's subpoena for Fast & Furious documents and the President's curious claim of "executive privilege" on a program he purportedly wasn't involved in.

Holder (and Obama) will lose on both cases.

And, then, Fast & Furious will rejoin this resplendent orchestra of scandals...

You claim obstruction on Issa's part, concerning Benghazi. You provide absolutely zero evidence to support your claim.

What might it be, pray tell?

"But give Issa CREDIT his going after Holder on this growing IRS scandal."

Unfortunately Biggirl, that is the impression the media are giving. They are masters at protecting their operatives until the public has forgotten completely about the issue. Issa is in a blue blue state. His income can be squeezed by cutting off campaign contributions. He probably has a closet full of skeletons which can be used to finish his political career if he doesn't follow orders. Look at the success of Islam, 1400 years because if you leave you must be killed by any Muslim with the opportunity. They play for keeps, and it has been effective. Issa has sold his soul, whether or not he advertises his allegiance, with his public support for Arafat. Right now Issa has good company with Hegel Brennan and Obama and Susan Rice and Samantha Power and...

As we were reminded by Judge/Congressman John Bingham, who authored the 14th Amendment, citizenship is about allegiance. Anyone who supports Sharia cannot be an honest citizen of the US, and thus allegiance of the parents is the meaning of the criterion required by our framers for the presidency. Read the naturalization oath. It is why presidents must have been born to citizen parents, and why Obama is illegitimate. Issa has allegiance for the Muslim Brotherhood, and is compromised. But like you, I hope he proves me wrong.

According to Wikipedia, Darrell Issa’ father’s family was Greek Orthodox Christian. His mother was Mormon. (I didn’t check to see if she is still alive.) Apparently she is or was of Czech and German descent.

Spaulding, that is one HELLACIOUS post to put on Jim's forum with no backing citations! I am not saying that your words are not true but that they should be backed up with links. My interpretation of your post is that OUR own fox is guarding the henhouse.

Don't tell me to do my own research. Many others are affected. There are hundreds and maybe thousands of lurkers here that read our posts daily. Your accusations are earth shattering.

Travis, do you have any input or confirmation of these words?

Issa’s paternal grandparents were Lebanese immigrants who both belonged to the Greek Orthodox Church of Antioch known as the “Antiochian Orthodox” community.

spaulding, you’d better be able to prove he’s connected to the Muslim Brotherhood or feels soft toward them.

Please let me know (if you remember) any outcome of this. I have never, ever caught a whiff that Issa is a Mozlem sympathizer. Many Lebanese (especailly ones over in the US) are Christian and I cannot imagine a Lebanese Christian sympathizing with Arafat or any other Mozlem radical.
