Skip to comments.Holder Wants Texas to Clear Voting Changes With the U.S.
Posted on 07/25/2013 6:42:54 PM PDT by Nachum
WASHINGTON Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. announced on Thursday that the Justice Department would ask a court to require Texas to get permission from the federal government before making voting changes in that state. The move opens a new chapter in the political struggle over election rules after the Supreme Court struck down a portion of the Voting Rights Act last month.
In a speech before the National Urban League in Philadelphia, Mr. Holder also indicated that the filing, expected later on Thursday, was most likely just an opening salvo in a new Obama administration strategy to try to reimpose preclearance requirements in parts of the country that have a history of discriminating against minority voters.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obama Voter Fraud
Just want to clue Holder in on something so he can practice or be prepared for it. I believe Texas will tell him to stick his finger up his butt and spin on it.
If all else fails, Texas can shut down the pipelines going out of Texas and sell its oil and gas on the open market. Winter time would be a good time to pull the plug on Obama and Holder and their people.
“requirements in parts of the country that have a history of discriminating against minority voters.”
Who decides whats discriminating? When did Texas commit
this discrimination? Why post an article you have to log
on to to see the rest of? Just curious.
Texas should dare him to enforce it.
For a State that is so racially biased, we sure have a problem with illegal Hispanics flocking here.
I call BS on Holders logic.
Just got a mental picture of that. Lol
The last I knew , states are responsible for running their own elections
Since when has the Feral Dept. of "Just-Us " ever prosecuted any violation of election laws , especially since ,or including, the last Federal election ?
It seems to me that there was once a war about "States Rights" vs. Feral.
And some people still don't acknowledge that civil war ever ended !
how is that going to work when obama already has him spinning on his
They need vote fraud to elect Dims to take over the House in 2014, that’s all this is about.
I thought obastard was spinning on holders nose or that if bo moved too fast it would break holders neck.
Come on down and try to enforce it, Eric the Red. Bring your NBPP homeboys with you.
Good luck with all that.
I wish he would show up and get arrested.
holder is a spineless barstard
Ok, so this sets up a power struggle between eric “the red” (lawless) holdup, and the Sovereign State of Texas.
Eric “the red” holdup, may get his a## handed to him.
This may lead to a really big struggle of epic proportions, and unintended consequences.
The kenyan’s admin may not survive this struggle.
funny H is doing this when his boss can’t run for re-election again... something else is afoot?
Time for Texas to have its own Emancipation Proclamation: announce the freedom of all Texans from the unconstitutional rule of the Kenyan @ss clown.
“Texas can shut down the pipelines going out”
Good idea but too many unintended consequences. The most
important would be the foot in the door for Obama to
nationalize the oil industry. The other would be a good
excuse to declare a national emergency.
If we do it, we better be ready to back it up militarily.
The first thing to go is going to be voter ID.
Then he have to wear on of those flaming pink jump suits !
Maybe he would look better in cerise organza ?
well, that is what this Texan wants. We are sick of him here!
“With any amount of luck , he would pull that crap in Sheriff Joe’s County , and then get arrested ..”
I with ya but just one thing. How would Joe go about
taking Holder into custody? Issue a warrant and get Dog
to go get him? Wait for him to turn himself in? If it were
possible to take Holder into custody he would be out of this
country in a minute. The same with Obama.
Eric the Corrupt has a high bar to meet. What the Supreme Court said was the Eric would have to come up with facts (and not 100 years ago) to back up his allegations. He can’t get any per-clearance until he proves and wins his case and wins all the immediate appeals. The Corrupt one is in a snit because he was basically blown out of the Supreme Court and as with normal 5 year olds he is throwing a temper tantrum.
“Mule Cookies!” - Col. Sherman T. Potter,”
FUEH....get out crooked lawyer
Eric Holder can go straight back to hell where him and obammy came from!
What can the Supreme Court do to slap this guy down? He’s defying their ruling, mere weeks afterward.
Holder wants.....to put his jack boot on America’s neck.

Texas needs to say to reckless black racist Eric Holder—— -— FTS (f that shyte)
Well the, how about we run the democrat Party thru a litmus test; seems they were the KKK; Good for the goose, good for the gander - hey Holder?
Go to hell Holder you socialist POS !
Commie Obama sends out Eric Holder to emit another smokescreen to distract attention from the Benghazi Massacre.
Fearful of beuing Impeached for Dereliction of Duty as CIC, Commie Obama has sent Holder out to joust at Windmills in Texas.
Always a sucker for smokescreen distractions the Liberal Agenda Media (LAM) dutifully will fill a good portion of their 24/7 support time for Commie Obama on the Texas jousting windmill story.
As the jousting windmill story dies down Holder will be sent out to create another smokescreen to prevent his boss from being impeached for the Dereliction of duty in the Benghazi Massacre.
Always oblivious to what Commie Obama is trying to cover up in the Benghazi Massacre, Speaker Boehner will still refuse to Impeach Obama, appoint a Special Prosecutor, or honor the requests of the 1000 Special Forces Petitioners yesterday to appoint a House Committee with subpoena powers.
Senator Cruz is correct on his negative appraisal of Holder, but seems oblivious to the reason Holder is jousting at the impeccable TEXAS Voting Rights identification Windmill.
It is time for the House RINOs to replace Boeher with a Speaker that will issue articles of Impeachment for B. Hussein Obama for his Dereliction of Duty during the Benghazi Massacre.
Are you saying that Texas wants Holder to take a long walk on a short dock?
We recognize how much you hate any impediment to your vote fraud schemes.
Texas will continue to fight vote fraud as we see fit.
If you have any objections...well, that’s just too damn bad.
So THAT’S why the diabolical smile upon his face. Better than pleasuring himself on the carpet.
“New York Times is excerpt only.”
I’m well aware of that. I’m talking about having to
create an account with the NYT and them logging in to see
the rest of the story. Whats the point? Or is there an
alternative around it? It doesn’t matter, I jacked the
story from somewhere else anyway. Thanks for the lead on
Good point. The democrats create the discrimination
and then blame the rest of the state for it. Every
red state will be labeled a racist state by the actions
of the democrats while the blue states get a pass.
