As much as I think that Barrack Hussein Obama is a disgrace as a president, he is at least (it appears anyway) beholden to the will of the people in some respects. Opinion polls matter, elections matter and no president wants to cement his legacy as a one termer when he is barely through his first two years in office.

However, the Obama administration appointees have been a comedy of criminals, radicals, buffoons and incompetent slobs that are as suited to positions of power as autistic gerbils.

Eric Holder is by far the worst of the bunch. Partially because of the prestige of his office, partially because he's a drama queen that loves posing for the camera and mostly because he is a hideously immature partisan hack that I wouldn't let scrub my toilet, let alone preside over the highest legal position that the government has to offer.

His latest disaster ( Count the many; trying to forcefeed the KSM trial to NYC, suing Arizona for enforcing federal immigration law, dismissing the case against the Black Panthers in the voter intimidation debacle for no good reason except for the defendants being black, having the terrorist who participated in butchering several hundred people at the American Embassy in Africa get acquitted on all but one count, calling Americans cowards on race, etc. etc.) involves one of the most ridiculous cases of pandering to the Arab Muslim Nazi's in this country that I have ever seen in my lifetime. A public school teacher decided to take a Hajj to Mecca in the middle of the school year for three weeks. The school said three weeks was too long. The woman decided to go to the EEOC who contacted Justice and now the brilliant Eric Holder is suing the school district on behalf of this camel turd for an ungodly amount of money. I'm posting the link from Huffington because even the douchebag libs who post there think this is a disgrace.

That would involve Barry admitting he was wrong about something and the 4th greatest president in American history is never wrong.

Eric Holder, Fear and Intimidation
Aaron Gee




This past weekend, Attorney General Eric Holder attempted to intimidate his critics by accusing them of racism. Under the Attorney General's watch more than a thousand weapons have been walked across the border by the ATF and more than 300 people are dead as a direct result. Even Holder himself admits that the 'Fast and Furious' guns will be used in more crimes. Innocents on both sides of the border have more to fear.

The mixture of fear and intimidation has existed since Holder's first days in office. Who can forget his first major speech after confirmation? In that speech the Attorney General said "Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards". Shortly thereafter the AG dropped the voter intimidation case against a New Black Panthers Party member that stood outside a polling station hurling racial slurs and carrying a night stick.



The same DOJ that is suing the state of Arizona for daring to enforce immigration laws is led by a man that admitted that he hadn't read the law in question. With that fact in hand the entire idea to sue can only be interpreted as an attempt to intimidate the state legislature. More fear for people that live on the border and whose lives are directly impacted by the various illegal drug and human traffickers.



A new example of intimidation came on Wednesday as Attorney's from the DOJ sent formal requests to WordPress to freeze logs and records from 3 climate-skeptic blogs. One of the blogs, ClimateAudit.org, is authored by the Canadian whose research proved that the famous "Hockey Stick" was bogus. The DOJ's case revolves around a second dump of emails known as Climategate 2.0 which has shown climate scientists engaging in certainly unethical and perhaps criminal behavior -- case of the DOJ going after the whistle blowers.



We can expect more intimidation from the DOJ and the people looking for the department to uphold the law have much to fear. Holder's DOJ has hired nothing but political ideologues in every DOJ section from Employment to Voting (including litigators). With the 2012 election looming, the selection of such hardened ideologues is troubling, especially in light of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case.



From ignoring and refusing to honor Freedom of Information Requests to refusal to enforce laws that are on the books, the Attorney General has fallen from an office entrusted to be the chief law enforcement officer of the Federal Government to a politically motivated strong arm of the Obama administration. Enough!  No more fear and intimidation from our government officials. It's time for Eric Holder to resign and for Congress to clean house at the DOJ.

Breaking: Confessions of Perjury inside the DOJ
big government ^ | 12/22/11 | J. Christian Adams




Today, PJ Media breaks a bombshell that an employee in the federal Department of Justice (DOJ) Voting Section, where I used to work, has admitted to lying three times under penalty of perjury during a DOJ Inspector General’s investigation.

The revelation may well affect congressional redistricting, because of the key role Voting Section staff play in approving state legislative plans, including the staffer in question.

For example, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott might use these allegations of perjury involving Texas redistricting to fight the ongoing redistricting litigation. Impeachment of a different sort–that of a testifying witness–is his for the taking.

The wide ranging DOJ Inspector General investigation is examining the harassment of conservative leaning DOJ employees who were willing to enforce civil rights laws equally against all wrongdoers, such as the New Black Panther party. You read that right–the harassment of employees who were willing to enforce the law against the New Black Panther Party.

Did Eric Holder Provide Explosives to Timothy McVeigh?
December 20, 2011
by Doug Book

Documents obtained by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show then-Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder authorized members of the FBI to provide explosives to Oklahoma City bombing criminals Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols immediately prior to the April 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building.

Holder had authorized the FBI to provide the explosives to McVeigh and Nichols in conjunction with a Clinton administration undercover operation named PATCON, an acronym for “Patriot Conspiracy.” As Jesse Trentadue describes it, “PATCON was designed to infiltrate and incite…militia and evangelical Christians to violence so that the Department of Justice could crush them.” [1]

Both Waco and Ruby Ridge are now known to have been PATCON-inspired, Department of Justice plots.

Shortly after the Oklahoma City bombing, Holder instructed FBI agents to recover from Terry Nichols any remainder of the explosives the Bureau had provided him and McVeigh. To the chagrin of Eric Holder, the explosives were later discovered by another agency, complete with the fingerprints of Nichols, McVeigh, and two FBI agents. Holder had reportedly offered Nichols respite from the death penalty for his cooperation in recovering the explosives.  Obviously, the Deputy Attorney General considered covering up his criminal complicity in the bombing a good deed eminently worth sparing Nichols his just punishment for the murders of 168 innocent Americans.

Jesse Trentadue accidentally came across PATCON while investigating the murder of his brother Kenneth at the hands of the Clinton Department of Justice. An FBI informant familiar with the Oklahoma City bombing story, Kenneth was found hanged in his cell after having been jailed by the FBI. Though an official FBI report had listed Kenneth as a suicide, it was obvious that he had been severely beaten and had his throat cut.

Upon Jesse taking the federal government to court, a federal judge ruled that the FBI had not only lied about Kenneth Trentadue’s death, the Bureau was also found guilty of having destroyed evidence concerning the case. In 2001 the Trentadue family was awarded $1.1 million, $250,000 of which remains a reward for information leading to the conviction of Kenneth Trentadue’s killers.

In late November, Newsweek magazine was to run a story revealing the history of PATCON, including the Oklahoma City bombing, the part played by Eric Holder, the FBI-initiated killings at Waco and Ruby Ridge, and the subsequent murder of Kenneth Trentadue. But as Mike Vanderboegh,  owner of the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog reports, Newsweek senior editor Tina Brown was “convinced” by members of the Clinton and Obama administrations to remove certain information from the lengthy R M Schneiderman article. Although originally approved for publication by Newsweek editor John Solomon, the article which finally appeared in the magazine had been cut to pieces, undoubtedly providing great relief to Holder, Clinton, Clinton Attorney General Janet Reno, and many other current and former members of the Department of Justice.

It hardly needs pointed out that this and other extraordinary stories of corruption and facilitation of murder by the Clinton and Obama administrations stink to high heaven. A number of links for further reading have been provided below. Rest assured that we at CoachIsRight.com will continue to pursue the stories of PATCON, Fast and Furious, and any other examples of executive branch corruption.

It’s doubtful we will want for material.

I read about this.   If this attorney has these records - he needs to make hundreds of copies and hire a bodyguard asap.   Otherwise - he will get the Ron Brown / Vince Foster treatment.

Holder's Voter ID Fraud
The AG invents fears of ballot suppression.


http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203893404577100313135266898.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_LEADTop#articleTabs%3Dcomments




The Obama Administration's re-election mobilization continues: Witness Eric Holder's attempt to play the race card and perhaps twist the law in a campaign against voter identification laws.

In the Attorney General's telling, the movement in the states to require voters to show some ID is a revival of minority disenfranchisement a la Jim Crow. A growing number of minorities, he said in a speech last week, are now worried about "the same disparities, divisions and problems" that beset the country in 1965 and "many Americans, for the first time in their lives . . . now have reason to believe that we are failing to live up" to the promise of democracy for all.

If you haven't heard about this national crisis, perhaps that's because you don't travel in Mr. Holder's political circles. He is merely repeating the howls of groups like the NAACP and the George Soros-funded Brennan Center, which claim without evidence that voter ID laws hurt minorities.

The NAACP even petitioned the United Nations this month for a human-rights ruling on what President Benjamin Jealous called a "tidal wave of assaults on the right to vote." He meant in America, not Cuba or North Korea. The American Civil Liberties Union has sued to challenge a voter ID law in Wisconsin.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder
.Mr. Holder's remarks are especially notable because they come as the Justice Department is reviewing voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina for "preclearance" under the Voting Rights Act. The states' plans require voters to present photo ID like a driver's license or passport to vote, a measure endorsed by the Commission on Federal Election Reform headed by President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker in 2005 to protect the integrity of the ballot.

Mr. Holder says the Civil Rights Division led by Thomas Perez will review the policies and impartially "apply the law." If that's true, Mr. Perez's job should be easy: In 2005, Justice approved a nearly identical law in Georgia. In 2008's Crawford v. Marion County Election Board, the Supreme Court likewise ruled 6-3 that an Indiana law requiring photo ID at the ballot box was constitutional.

The court's liberal lion, then-Justice John Paul Stevens, wrote for the majority that Indiana's law "is unquestionably relevant to the State's interest in protecting the integrity and reliability of the electoral process." Indiana offered free voter ID cards to all citizens, so the inconvenience of picking up an ID at the Department of Motor Vehicles wasn't an undue burden and was reasonably balanced by the state's interest in reducing fraud, Justice Stevens wrote.

That isn't good enough for Mr. Holder, who says his department's priority is to "expand the franchise." But expand it for whom, exactly? The vast majority of voters already have the necessary photo ID, which they need to get through airport security or register for a grocery-store savings card.

Plaintiffs put up by liberal lawsuit shops routinely claim that ID laws endanger the rights of hundreds of thousands, but lawsuits in Indiana and Georgia were dismissed because they couldn't produce a single eligible voter who'd been turned away due to the ID requirement. Turnout has risen in states that have passed the voter ID laws, with no adverse impact on minorities.

In his speech, Mr. Holder highlighted historical attempts to keep voters away from the polls to "gain partisan advantage." But in a case of more recent history, in 2009, Mr. Holder's department dropped a voter intimidation case against the Black Panther Party, in which members stood outside a polling place brandishing nightsticks and threatening voters. Civil-rights lawyer Bartle Bull saw the Panthers in action and called it "the most blatant form of voter intimidation I've ever seen."

Thirty states now require some form of ID at the polls, and one goal of Mr. Holder's attack is to intimidate other states that want to toughen their laws. He's probably also signaling that Justice will strike down the Texas and South Carolina statutes. This would please the Democratic Party's left while not-so-subtly inventing a threat of Republican racism to drive minority turnout in 2012. Mr. Holder's voter ID alarums are one more reason he's earning a reputation for politicized, partial justice.

Congressman trumps Holder’s race card, asks if Mexican gun-walking deaths were ‘racially motivated’
The Daily Caller ^ | 12/23/2011 | Matthew Boyle -
Posted on December 23, 2011 8:30:45 PM EST by george76

Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar told The Daily Caller that Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-card play to attack his critics is “absolutely horrendous.” But Gosar said he thinks race may have played a role in the Department of Justice’s execution of Operation Fast and Furious — but in a different way from how Holder is framing it.

“He [Holder] brought up the race card, and while I think it’s absolutely horrendous that he would bring up the race card, in Fast and Furious, we were in fact impugning the Mexican people,” Gosar said in a phone interview. “About 300 people have lost their lives.”

“When the attorney general brings up the race card, he’d better be very, very careful — particularly for the Hispanics and what’s happened to them,” Gosar adds. “He’s been very insensitive, not only to the [U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian] Terry family in making an apology and making it very public, but where’s the apology to the Mexican government and the families of the victims in Mexico?”

...

At least 300 people in Mexico were killed with Fast and Furious weapons, as was Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. The identities of the Mexican victims are unknown. Allegations have surfaced that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent Jaime Zapata was also killed with Fast and Furious weapons.

Sixty-two congressmen, two senators, two sitting governors and every major Republican presidential candidate have demanded Holder’s ouster over the resulting scandal. And 85 congressmen have signed a House resolution of “no confidence” in Holder as the nation’s top law enforcement officer.

Krauthammer: Eric Holder ‘one of the most incompetent attorneys general in US history’

Last week, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder suggested racism was behind the attacks he was facing for the missteps his Department of Justice has made.

On Friday’s “Special Report with Bret Baier” on the Fox News Channel, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer explained what he thought was the rationale behind this charge from Holder: It’s a defensive tactic for his political troubles.

“It’s clearly a cheap shot of an attorney general who is in political trouble,” Krauthammer said. “The reason he is, he is one of the most incompetent attorneys general in U.S. history. He is the guy who brought on gratuitously the fiasco of the KSM [Kalid Sheikh Mohammed] trial in New York that even Democrats rebelled against. He is the guy who has led a department that has been either totally ignorant or disingenuous or worse on the Fast and the Furious scandal.”

Krauthammer said this use of the race card was dangerous, particularly when it could stoke “racial animosity.”

“And now he plays the race card,” Krauthammer continued. “I think it’s, to use his word a cowardly use of the race card and it’s unbecoming. It also is dangerous in a country where it can stoke that kind of racial animosity. He shouldn’t be using it. I say it with all due respect. Merry Christmas, Mr. Attorney General.”

Admitted Liar and Document Leaker Retains Key DOJ Job
godfatherpolitics.com ^ | Dec 27, 2011 | Giacomo
Posted on December 27, 2011 10:14:25 PM EST by Iam1ru1-2

The Department of Justice Inspector General has been conducting an investigation in the leaking of sensitive documents from back in 2005-2007. Some of the documents that were leaked to the leftist Washington Post included confidential attorney-client records along with other confidential personnel information and highly sensitive legal papers.

On more than one occasion, the DOJ investigation led to career DOJ Civil Rights Division Voting employee Stephanie Celandine Gyamfi. The first two times Gyamfi was interviewed by the investigators, she denied having any knowledge of the document leaks. Digging deeper, the investigators found incriminating evidence implicating Gyamfi, prompting them to interview her a third time.

During the third interview session, Gyamfi again denied any involvement or knowledge of the document leaks. Then she was presented with e-mails that revealed her role in the leaked documents. At this time she supposedly broke down in tears and confessed that she had been lying to protect other DOJ employees.

To date, Gyamfi has not been disciplined for lying to investigators or for her role in leaking the classified information. Worse yet is that she remains at her job with the DOJ where she is involved with the government review of the congressional redistricting in Texas. Oh yeah, did I mention that some of the documents and information she helped to supply to the Washington Post apply to Texas and its political redistricting?

If Gyamfi worked for any private company, she would have been terminated on the spot and possibly charged with criminal actions for leaking sensitive company documents to an outside source. If she were a Republican, I’m sure she would have been dismissed and escorted out of the building.

Career employee with civil service protection or not, US Attorney General Eric Holder has the authority to take action against Gyamfi up to and including termination on grounds of her committing perjury and for illegally leaking the documents to the Washington Post. But one has to wonder why Holder or any of her supervisors have not taken any disciplinary actions against her.

Oh, that’s right. This is the United States Department of Justice. This is the organization that is supposed to set the example for obeying and defending the laws of the land. They would never do anything illegal or tolerate an employee who did anything illegal, would they?

US reviewing anti-Muslim school bias complaint
wtov9.com ^ | 12-27-11 | AP




PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. —

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Detroit is reviewing a religious discrimination complaint against a community for denying a zoning change request to allow construction of a Muslim school.

The Michigan Islamic Academy wants to build at a 26-acre site in Washtenaw County's Pittsfield Township.

"We are reviewing the matter and whether to proceed with a formal investigation," Assistant U.S. Attorney Judith Levy told The Detroit News (http://bit.ly/soyS41 ) for a story Tuesday.

On Oct. 26, the township board rejected the request, following an earlier rejection by the township planning commission. School officials say the 200-student school is too big for its location in nearby Ann Arbor.

Township Supervisor Mandy Grewal said the decision isn't based on religion.

"We are an open, respectful and diverse community here in Pittsfield Township" Grewal said after the October decision. "We have a track record, most recently the planning commission approved a mosque."

The Council on American-Islamic Relations said the decision violated the First Amendment right of religious freedom, and it asked the Justice Department to investigate.

"We believe this is a blatant violation of the (school's) constitutional right to open the school on their property," said Lena Masri, a lawyer for the group.
