    Here are the facts: Two black real estate agents walk into a Starbucks…trigger warning! Racism ahead! They are waiting to meet a (white) real estate developer – isn’t it just like a white guy to disrespect a couple of black men by being late – and they aren’t going to order anything until he arrived to pick up the tab.They were planning to eff with the barista by ordering a couple of Flat WhitesOne of the (black) men asked for the key to the restroom while waiting and was denied because a) company policy states restrooms are “for customers only”...

    Despite advances the country has made since the Rev. Martin Luther King. Jr. was slain while fighting poverty and racism, “the age of bullies and bigots is not fully behind us,” former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. The remark was one of two thinly veiled references to President Donald Trump that Holder made during his appearance at a symposium on the first of three days of events commemorating the 50th anniversary of King’s assassination. […] Holder, the first black U.S. attorney general, spoke at a symposium sponsored by the University of Memphis and the museum. He was introduced...

    The Trump administration announced Monday night it will be reinstating a citizenship question to the decennial census in 2020, prompting threats of lawsuits by prominent Democrats. Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra separately announced they will file respective lawsuits to stop the citizenship question from being asked during the census. Holder’s statement called the move by the Trump administration a “direct attack on our representative democracy.” Becerra called the decision, “illegal.” The Commerce Department, which oversees the census, issued a statement announcing the decision: Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that a question...

    The termination of Andrew McCabe has the left wing in an absolute emotional mess. LA TImes: After McCabe's firing, all signs point to Trump trying to end Mueller's investigation Mr. Contempt of Congress wailed about the cruelty: https://twitter.com/EricHolder/status/974892578058489856?More whining from a drama queenPresidential historian Douglas Brinkley dramatically likened the firing of McCabe to the “Saturday Night Massacre” during the Nixon administration. “This’ll be known as the ‘Friday Night Slaughter,'” Brinkley told CNN. “The very idea that Jeff Sessions hasn’t released something to inform the public of what this is, it was done in sort of a cloak of secrecy late...

    Former Attorney General Eric Holder is among the high-profile people who are speaking out on the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Since Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired McCabe two days before he was set to retire, Holder said the decision was cruel at the very least but warned it's also dangerous to “please an increasingly erratic President”:

    The Department of Justice announced Wednesday additional documents related to the Operation Fast and Furious scandal during the Obama administration will be released to the House Oversight Committee. The documents were previously withheld by Attorney General Eric Holder, who was voted in civil and criminal contempt of Congress for refusing to turn them over. “The Department of Justice under my watch is committed to transparency and the rule of law. This settlement agreement is an important step to make sure that the public finally receives all the facts related to Operation Fast and Furious,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions released in...

    Eric Holder, former attorney general for President Obama, predicts that special counsel Robert Mueller already has an obstruction of justice case against President Trump and that he is stalling so he can make it as juicy as he can and bring it before a grand jury."Well I think that you technically have an obstruction of justice case that already exists," Holder said on "Real Time with Bill Maher" Friday. "I've known Bob Mueller for 20, 30 years. My guess is, he's just trying to make the case as good as he possibly can."The Mueller investigation has produced several indictments so...

    In the past, when we studied the collapse of civilizations, we learned about Barbarian invasions and slave revolts. When our history is written, I suspect it will include peacocks on airplanes and emotional support hamsters. So how did we get here? How are farm animals such as pigs getting into first class to keep their owners soothed and sedate? That's what the Jack Daniels was supposed to do. As we’ll see in a moment, we can blame the unhinged era of Eric Holder at the Justice Department. In case you missed it, Spirit Airlines is getting grief for advising college...

    CONSERVATIVE TREEHOUSE ^ | 2/26/2018 | JACK CASHILL
    It doesn’t come as a surprise to find the most appropriate discussion headline behind the Parkland, Florida school shooting did not come from an MSM news article, but rather from a person who understands the origin of the issue. Writer Jack Cashill publishes an article in American Thinker today appropriately titled: “Incompetence Wasn’t The Problem in Broward County“. Mr. Cashill, a person adept at tracing complex issues to their truthful origin, has it entirely correct. Nothing about the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was based on structural incompetence; the horrific event was an entirely predictable outcome of intentionally...

    Noticeably absent from any reporting about the recent school shootings is ANY reference to the Attorney General who approved the sale to straw buyers of semi-automatic weapons during Operation Fast & Furious. A large number of weapons, many of which ended up with the drug cartels. The result was many victims both in the Mexico and the USA including Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Resistance Leader Sneak Attack ALERT The anti-American ex-president, who will continue to antagonize and haunt Americans during his natural lifetime and will NEVER go away; his hand-picked protégé who lost last November’s election but acts as though she’s the current president anyway, have managed to insert themselves into the underpinnings of the entire electoral process. Self-crowned ‘Resistance Leader’ Barack Hussein Obama has discovered a workable loophole to take the Democrat Party out of exile back into power.

    Back around Thanksgiving time, we looked at some groundbreaking reporting from the Washington Free Beacon where they exposed some less than media-neutral activities by one member of the press. Janell Ross, a political reporter for the Washington Post, was found to have participated in a highly secretive, big dollar fundraising and strategy conference for the Democrats. To be clear, Ross was not there reporting on the conference as part of her job. She wrote no articles about it and the WaPo said they didn’t even know that she had gone. She was a participant in the event, even sitting in...

    Following a Democrat’s special election win in a Wisconsin Senate district that voted for President Donald Trump, a group backed by former President Barack Obama said it plans to invest millions of dollars into state-wide elections in Wisconsin and 10 other states. The National Democratic Redistricting Committee, led by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, said this year’s election cycle is critical to affecting the congressional redistricting process. It is the first cycle whose winners will participate in drawing congressional maps for the decade starting in 2021. The committee backed Democrat Patty Schachtner in last month’s election in the 10th...

    Eric Holder, former President Barack Obama’s attorney general, confirmed Wednesday that he’s considering throwing his hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential race. “We’ll see,” he said during a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor in Washington, DC. He was asked if he’s mulling a run for the White House because he’s learning how to raise funds and giving political speeches. “I think I’ll make a decision by the end of the year about whether or not there is another chapter in my government service,” he replied. Holder, who served as attorney general from 2009 to 2015, has...

    In their recent ( article in The Hill), John Solomon and Alison Spann reported on the Obama Justice Department’s slow-walk investigation of Moscow’s “bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putin’s atomic energy business inside the United States.” Obama administration figures involved in the 2009-15 investigation include Robert Mueller, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe — all of whom are involved in some fashion in the current investigation of President (Donald Trump’s) alleged collusion with Russia.Despite extensive information as early as 2009 that Moscow had compromised an American uranium trucking firm and that Russian nuclear officials...

    Former President Obama’s long-serving attorney general, Eric Holder, is considering a political run in 2020, possibly for president. “We’ll see,” he said when asked about a bid for the Democratic nomination. Holder, addressing reporters at a media breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, said that he will make a decision this year. "I think I'll make a decision by the end of the year about whether or not there is another chapter in my government service," he said. Also asked if he planned a career in politics, he said again, “I’ll see.” During the hour-long session, Holder spoke of...

    According to Vulture, CBS is “ordering a pilot for Main Justice, a show based on the life of former attorney general Eric Holder.” ... It will be fascinating to see how the show handles Holder shaking down corporations. Apparently, you could make a DOJ lawsuit go away by forking over a substantial sum to to your favorite (left-wing) charity. Hopefully it will cover Operation Fast and Furious, the idiotic ATF “gun walking” scheme that resulted in Border Patrol agent Brian Terry being murdered with a government-supplied rifle....Actually, we probably won’t learn much from the show. Vulture tells us, “Holder is...

Its last published organization chart, from 2015, shows only three appointees and their support staff. ATJ distributed grants and drafted “statements of interest” aimed at supporting the right to competent legal representation for the poor and indigent secured by the U.S. Constitution and the Supreme Court’s famous 1963 decision in...
