  • Holder Attacks Palin: Bad VP Candidate, 'Even Worse Judge' of Impeachment

    Sunday on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," Attorney General Eric Holder blasted former Gov. Sarah Palin's (R-AK) for her call to impeach President Barack Obama by saying, "She wasn't a particularly good vice presidential candidate. She's an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why." House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and other senior Republicans have dismissed Palin's calls and instead have opted to file a lawsuit against Obama's executive overreach. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) said earlier on the program, "We are not working on or drawing up articles of impeachment. He has not...

    Pajamas Media ^ | 06/19/2014 | Roger Simon
    Hillary Clinton — the woman assumed to be the next Democratic Party presidential nominee and quite possibly the next president — is evidently a big snooze. According to Mediate [1], her interviews to promote her book on CNN and Fox had underwhelming numbers. In the case of Greta Van Susteren’s show, she sent people fleeing midway. More importantly, her book itself is a sales disappointment and, I would wager, even more disappointing if you could ascertain how many who did buy it read actually past page 15. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was in single digits.No, I haven’t...

    As she launches her book tour to rebrand her image, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is becoming less liked by Americans. According to a Gallup survey, only 54 percent of Americans now view Clinton favorably, which is her lowest rating since 2008. She had a 59 percent favorability rating before her book tour. Clinton, a potential 2016 presidential contender, is less liked when she enters the political arena, and her book tour is being run like a campaign. Clinton has already made plenty of blunders during her book launch, like claiming that she was "dead broke" after she and...

    When politicians have trouble spinning their own glories, thats a problem. So it was bizarre that Hillary Rodham Clinton, asked at a forum in April about her legacy at the State Department, had trouble articulating it. That feeds into a narrative awaiting her memoir on Tuesday that she may have been glamorous as secretary of state but didnt actually accomplish much. In fact, thats dead wrong, for Clinton achieved a great deal and left a hefty legacy just not the traditional kind.... No, her legacy is different. For starters, Clinton recognized that our future.... More fundamentally, Clinton...

And she contrasted their years in the White House with the tenure of former President George W. Bush, saying eight years of...

    Former Republican Rep. James Rogan, who served as one of the House managers of the impeachment case against Bill Clinton, says the White House launched a full-fledged attack on onetime intern Monica Lewinsky when word came out about the presidents sexual escapades with her. History shows that Ms. Lewinsky was treated horribly by the White House: When her relationship with the president first blared across the headlines, the White House began a full-court press strategy to destroy her: White House operatives portrayed her as a deranged stalker to any reporter willing to listen, said the former California congressman.

A full 90% of the children who benefit from the voucher program are black. The remaining 10% came from 22 school districts under desegregation orders handed down five decades ago, which prompted the DOJ to state, the voucher recipients were in the racial minority at the public school they attended before receiving the voucher.

The traditional religious oath could be scrapped amid concerns that many giving evidence in criminal cases no longer take it seriously. Instead, all witnesses and defendants would promise to tell the truth without mentioning God, and would acknowledge they could be jailed if they are caught lying. It is claimed the new oath would be fairer for everyone and make it easier to understand the importance of what they are saying. But...

For some reason the obama regime has been working real hard to suppress any information regarding this incident and to keep it from getting into the Mainstream Reality TV media. Thankfully, their efforts to cover their involvement in both the incident and the cover up have blown up in their faces. The usual spin, stonewalling, deception and manipulation of events that is a hallmark of the obama regime has fallen short. Congressional hearings are on the way. A fabricated outrage of synthetic racism can generate only a finite amount of distraction...
  • ACLU Letter to Attorney General Eric Holder

    07/21/2013 8:53:19 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 17 replies
    We are writing to clearly state the ACLUs position on whether or not the Department of Justice (DOJ) should consider bring ing federal civil rights or hate crimes charges as a result of the state court acquittal in the George Zimmerman case. Even though the Supreme Court permits a federal prosecution following a state prosecutio n, the ACLU believes the Double Jeopardy Clause of the Constitution protects someone from being prosecuted in another court for charges arising from the same transaction. A jury found Zimmerman not guilty, and that should be the end of the criminal case.

    Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has no plans to resign following disclosures to the Senate Intelligence Committee that he misled Congress on widespread National Security Agency electronic surveillance of Americans. DNI Clapper explained his response in the letter to Chairman [Dianne] Feinstein [(D., Calif.)] and apologized for the misunderstanding, said Michael Birmingham, spokesperson for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Clapper values the decades-long stellar relationship he has with Congress and remains focused on leading the intelligence community, Birmingham told the Free Beacon in a statement Monday.

    There is a problem with President Barack Obamas long-form birth certificate: Its a forgery, say multiple forensic experts who have examined it. A report detailing the evidence will soon be presented to Congress. On April 27, 2011 the White House released Mr. Obamas long-form birth certificate in an attempt to quell a public firestorm over the validity of the shorter version he provided prior to his 2008 election. A group of concerned citizens in Arizona suspected the Certificate of Live Birth produced in 2011 by the administration was fabricated; they asked Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County to investigate. We...

    Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin and his older brother took the stand today to tell jurors in the George Zimmerman trial that the voice screaming for help on the 911 calls was that of the slain Florida teenager. "That scream, do you recognize that?" prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda asked Martin's mother. "Yes, it's Trayvon Benjamin Martin," she answered. Zimmerman, 29, faces second degree murder charges for Martin's death. He maintains he shot the unarmed teenager in self-defense after he was confronted and attacked by Martin, 17, on Feb. 26, 2012. Prosecutors allege the former neighborhood watch captain profiled,...

  • DNI chief Clapper apologizes for clearly erroneous answer to Congress on NSA data collection

    WASHINGTON National Intelligence Director James Clapper is apologizing for telling Congress earlier this year that the National Security Agency does not collect data on millions of Americans. In a letter to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, Clapper says his answer was clearly erroneous. Leaks by NSA systems analyst Edward Snowden have revealed the NSAs sweeping data collection of U.S. phone records and some Internet traffic every day, though U.S. intelligence officials have said the programs are aimed at targeting foreigners and terrorist suspects overseas. Clapper was asked in March if the NSA gathered any type of data at...

    Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has apologized for a clearly erroneous statement he made to Congress over the National Security Agencys surveillance activity. In a letter to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) released publicly on Tuesday, Clapper said he was mistaken when he told Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) that the United States did not collect data on millions of Americans. My response was clearly erroneous for which I apologize, Clapper wrote in the letter dated June 21. While my staff acknowledged the error to Senator Wydens staff soon after the hearing, I can now openly correct...

Posted on CiR in March, this piece offers a little background on the VRA and instructions which AG Eric Holder gave DOJ employeesinstructions designed to deceive Supreme Court justices as they considered the Act and the Shelby County case.

    Legal experts say Republicans don't have much of a chance at making perjury charges stick to Attorney General Eric Holder. Perjury is a very tough charge to prove because you have to show that the statement he made was a false statement, and he knew it was false, said Laurie Levenson, a former federal prosecutor and current professor at the Loyola Law School. In a perjury case, the nuance makes the difference between guilty and innocent. House Judiciary Republicans are investigating whether the nations top cop lied under oath when he told the panel that he has never been involved...
