Did Holder admit to spying on Supreme Court?
Breitbart.com ^ | 6/9/13 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 06/11/2013 3:27:53 AM PDT by logi_cal869

(snip)

Holder responded, “With all due respect, Senator, I don’t think this is an appropriate setting for me to discuss that issue. I’d be more than glad to come back in a — in an appropriate setting to discuss the issues that you have raised."

Kirk, a Naval intelligence officer, pressed Holder remarking, “I would interrupt you and say the correct answer would be say no, we stayed within our lane, and I’m assuring you we did not spy on members of Congress.”

Holder remained defiant saying, “And I would be more than glad, as I said, in an appropriate setting, to deal with the question. And Senator Kirk, please do not take my response as something — as being anything but respectful of the concerns that you have raised. There has been no intention to do anything of that nature — that is, to spy on members of Congress, to spy on members of the Supreme Court.”

If you ask the question "Why did he say that?" it becomes more clear. His language is worrisome.

Given Chief Roberts' recent bizarre opinion (ACA), I think it merits scrutiny.

Yes. There can be no balance of power if one branch of the government can spy on and thus blackmail or subvert the other branches. This is a crisis and if not dealt with swiftly and effectively spells the end of our nation as we know it.

To expect balance from the defective, psychologically unbalanced scales heavily weighted on the left is a psychological defect all its own.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise. Thanks.

Everyone with a brain suspects Justice Roberts was blackmailed. If only he had the balls to say it.

None can do anything about it.

If they speak up, their families are MURDERED with
ObamaCARE/DEATHCARE after being audited endlessly.

I’d say were a bit too late for that. There is NO ONE that will stand up to these crooks to make a difference. We need a thousand Sheriff Joe’s to even start making a difference and then I doubt we would get very far.

Find the fica court order from the DOJ. Note the additional paragraph covering citizens of the US. Check who signed it. There will be your answer

Verizon hold the government contract on all land and cell phones.

There are no exceptions written into the court order.

Therefore, DOJ is keeping records on Congress, SCOTUS , Pentagon, CIA etc etc

After all Holder has said there are a few things on his list he needs to finish.... Or finish off!

I’m afraid to think how far back they can go. This has been going on for a very long time - surely not as sophisticated - but it goes back 20yrs and more, according to AT&T Long Lines (Bedminster, NJ) people I know.

If Holder refused to say “no”,
then the answer is “YES”.

From your link:
"ObamaCare... fundamentally changed the relationship between citizen and government, making us de facto property of the state, with our relative worth in care and maintenance able to be determined by the government. Essentially it was a coup without firing a shot, much less needing even an Amendment to the Constitution."

Did Holder admit to spying on Supreme Court?

The NSA PRISM Program gave 0bama and his thugs the tidbits he needed to get Roberts to go along with 0bamascare, and Boehner to shut up and retire to the nearest bar. Why did 0bama lecture Ohio State grads on tyranny? Just wait until they steal the congressional elections next year and get majorities in both houses. We'll know tyranny firsthand!

Once you learn how to translate Holder into English he means yes they did spy on Congress and the SCOTUS. It appears they must have something Roberts. Likely the fact that he possibly/probably illegally adopted two kids from Ireland. God only knows what they will get on the corrup cabal in the House and Senate.

Then I am officially scandal-overloaded. The only one I’ve heard was the adoption one.

Well I’ve rummaged around a little and now I’m going to have to quibble with you.

A search for “chief justice” + “john roberts” + obamacare + blackmail turns up only adoption-related links on the first page, and a pretty thorough link from the second page trying to make the gay case is pretty thin gruel — the author makes the matter of not getting married until 41 his hard-hitting lead, and wants us to think that the occasional wearing of plaid pants is an indicator, among other absurdities.

wonder how many others have been blackmailed? We know Patraeus was. Hard to think that they would do such a thing but I really am not surprised. Yet I am surprised. I am disappointed. I do not like these people.

What if....Petraeus and Roberts BOTH publicly conceded at the same press conference that they'd both been blackmailed? How big a can o' worms would that open?

More than one "name" MUST emerge to indict the surveillance of 300 million Americans as mere instrument of political blackmail rather than in the name of "security."

I’m not saying it’s true: I’ve no idea whether it is.

But I think it is hard to quibble with my quibble with your claiming the adoption issue was the ‘consensus’ theory. I’ve certainly seen the alternative one posited here at FR.

What difference, at this point, does it make? Roberts can’t undecided what he decided, even if it was a result of being blackmailed. You can’t unring that bell.
