Sen. Cornyn: Holder’s ‘arrogance knows no bounds’
The Daily Caller ^ | May 9, 2012 | Matthew Boyle
Posted on May 11, 2012 4:25:57 AM EDT by yoe

Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn told The Daily Caller on Wednesday that he thinks Attorney General Eric Holder needs to comply with the congressional subpoena demanding documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious.

Cornyn also said he thinks Holder’s demonstrable failure to comply with House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa’s subpoena for Fast and Furious documents is an indicator of his overall disregard for congressional oversight. “It’s abundantly clear that when it comes to cooperating with Congress, the Attorney General’s arrogance knows no bounds,” Cornyn told TheDC.

President Barack Obama now has a responsibility to step forward and make Holder comply with the subpoena, Cornyn added. He said Obama and Holder owe it the family of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was murdered more than a year ago with Fast and Furious weapons the Obama administration allowed to get into the hands of Mexican drug cartels.

“President Obama should show leadership and direct the Attorney General to provide the Terry family with answers,” Cornyn said.

Issa served Holder with a subpoena on Oct. 12, 2011. The Attorney General has so far failed to comply with all 22 categories of the subpoena that requires him to provide Congress with documents relating to Fast and Furious. With 13 of the categories, Holder (has provided no documents) When it comes to the other nine subpoena categories, Holder (is still far from compliant,) , as TheDC reported late last week.

Contempt of Congress proceedings for Holder appear to be on the immediate horizon if he continues failing to comply with the subpoena.

House Votes to Limit DOJ Funding Unless Holder Comes Clean (142 Democrats votes for it)
 American Thinker ^ | 05/11/2012 | M Catherine Evans




The House voted on a controversial funding limit amendment Wednesday evening to stop Attorney General Holder from lying to Congress.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) Comments the move to cut off Holder's DOJ allowance for 2013 unless he tells the truth about the gun walking operation known as Fast and Furious.

The amendment to H.R. 5326, an appropriations bill funding Holder's agency for 2013, was in response to a February 4, 2011 letter to Congress in which DOJ officials denied any involvement in Operation Fast and Furious. Months later after damaging contradictions and discrepancies surfaced the Department was forced to rescind the letter.

In a 381-41 vote, House members including 142 Democrats, overwhelmingly sided with Chaffetz. The peoples' representatives decided taxpayer monies should not be used to support liars.

But the best Comments of outrage over the DOJ's above-the law attitude came from Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).

"There hasn't been a demotion, there hasn't been a firing, there hasn't been a sanction, there hasn't been a frowny-face on a performance evaluation."

I'm thinking there are some politicians who have reached their limit of patience with Holder and Company. Not even one darn frowny-face.

Meet the Radical DOJ Lawyer Forcing Florida to Keep Foreigners on the Voter Rolls
PJ Media ^ | June 1, 2012 | J. Christian Adams
Posted on June 1, 2012 4:46:32 PM EDT by jazusamo

Yesterday, Eric Holder’s Voting Section ordered Florida to stop purging foreigners from the voter rolls. Two weeks ago, Florida found 53,000 dead voters registered to vote. Florida has also found non-citizens on the voter rolls and Secretary of State Ken Detzner has started the process of removing them.

Not so fast, says Eric Holder’s DOJ.

In a letter to Detzner, the DOJ says to stop removing foreigners from the rolls. The Voting Section makes a dubious argument under Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, a law the Obama administration has refused to enforce because of ideological opposition. The letter notes that Elise Shore is the attorney behind the letter.

Eureka!

 
Elise Shore

Recall that PJ Media produced the Every Single One series that exposed the partisan DOJ hiring practices and the radicalism of the DOJ Civil Rights Division lawyers hired by the Obama administration.

What do we know about Elise Shore from the installment about the Voting Section?

Elise Shore . Ms. Shore came to the Voting Section by way of the “Southern Coalition for Social Justice,” where she worked as a legal consultant focusing on “voting rights, immigrant rights, and other civil rights and social justice issues.” The far left-wing positions of this group are nicely summarized on its website. Ms. Shore also made a $1,000 contribution to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

Before joining the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, she worked for more than two years as a Regional Counsel for MALDEF [Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund]. There, she was an outspoken critic of Georgia’s voter ID law and well as its proof of citizenship requirements for voter registration (which, incidentally, have been found to be non-discriminatory by a federal court) and described how heartened she was that the Civil Rights Division had objected to the registration law under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. But her joy must have been fleeting: the Division later capitulated and withdrew its objection after Georgia filed a federal declaratory judgment action. It will be interesting to see if Shore can put her politics to the side in her role as the Voting Section’s point of contact for all redistricting submissions in the state of Florida.

It looks like Ms. Shore wasn’t able to set aside MALDEF-style radicalism, even after she started working for the taxpayers of the United States. Sadly, this private radicalism has metastasized into radical open-borders public policy. Not only does the DOJ stop states from enforcing their laws pertaining to illegal immigration, the DOJ is forcing Florida to keep non-citizens on the voter rolls. We have entered strange and dangerous times.

Holder's Racial Incitement [Wall St. J Editorial]
Wall St. J ^ | May 31, 2012
Posted on June 1, 2012 10:28:21 PM EDT by Steelfish

May 31, 2012 Holder's Racial Incitement When looking for the Attorney General's motives, think lower.

The United States of America has a black President whose chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General Eric Holder, is also black. They have a lot of political power. So how are they using it? Well, one way is to assert to black audiences that voter ID laws are really attempts to disenfranchise black Americans. And liberals think Donald Trump's birther fantasies are offensive?

"In my travels across this country, I've heard a consistent drumbeat of concern from citizens, who—often for the first time in their lives—now have reason to believe that we are failing to live up to one of our nation's most noble ideals," Mr. Holder said Wednesday in a speech to the Council of Black Churches. Voter ID laws and white discrimination, he added, mean that "some of the achievements that defined the civil rights movement now hang in the balance."

That's right. The two most powerful men in America are black, two of the last three Secretaries of State were black, numerous corporate CEOs and other executives are black, and minorities of many races now win state-wide elections in states that belonged to the Confederacy, but the AG implies that Jim Crow is on the cusp of a comeback.

It's demeaning to have to dignify this argument with facts, but here goes. Voter ID laws have been found by the courts not to be an undue burden under the Voting Rights Act and the Constitution. The landmark Supreme Court opinion, upholding an Indiana law in 2008, was written for a six-member majority by that noted right-winger, John Paul Stevens.

If Romney gets the nod (and, if things keep going like this, it's almost a lock), I hope one of the FIRST things he does, after being sworn into office, is to put that goof Holder in chains and haul his sorry carcass to Leavenworth, so he can master the art of making little rocks out of big rocks.

DOJ sues Las Vegas casino for screening non-citizen workers
Examiner.com ^ | 06/01/2012 | Jim Kouri
Posted on June 2, 2012 6:33:02 PM EDT by aimhigh

While proponents of immigration enforcement have been told that the federal government monitors the hiring of illegal aliens by the private sector, including adherence to the federal employment verification (I-9) program, Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department appears to have made a decision to penalize organizations that zealously comply.

For example, on Thursday the Justice Department announced that it filed a civil lawsuit against the Tuscany Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, accusing the company of engaging in "a pattern or practice of discrimination in the employment eligibility verification and re-verification process."

Who Will Stop the Lawless Obama Justice Department?
 scottfactor.com ^ | 06/05/2012 | Gina Miller






It is a painful, heartbreaking thing to watch your country fall in slow motion. It is gut-wrenching to stare helplessly as a communist-infiltrated United States federal government operates lawlessly on a daily basis. In this ever-growing darkness, we look for spots of light, signs of hope that somehow we can turn around this full-frontal assault on America. We look for a miracle in November to prevent the theft of the presidential election.

Not that we will ever stop fighting for America as founded, but it may be too late to restore our nation, because corruption and immorality run to its core. The infestation of communist operatives in the three branches of our federal government and all its agencies is so pervasive that it would literally take a fiery revolution to oust them, or at least some major miracles during elections. Every level of our leadership is occupied, from the criminal fraud in the White House on down.

One of the most glaringly lawless, commie-infested offices is the Department of Justice (DOJ), the supposed king law enforcement entity of the land. Yet, here is perhaps the most criminal Justice Department in American history, under the detestable Attorney General Eric Holder. Whether we consider Holder’s handling of New Black Panther voter intimidation from the 2008 presidential elections, or his refusal to defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act (which another groups of radicals on the federal bench has just ruled “unconstitutional”), or his culpability in the deadly Fast and Furious gun-running scheme, how could we imagine a more corrupt, American “law enforcement” entity? Do not answer that, because we know it could always get worse, and I am certain it will get worse if Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) is “voter frauded” back into the presidency in November.

Eric Holder is implementing a radical leftist program in our country. One of the big areas in which he is inflicting this campaign is in his criminal handling of our nation’s immigration laws. Another area is in his attacks on the states’ efforts to protect the integrity of elections. Holder knows no illegal alien that he is not willing to defend against our nation’s own rightful immigration laws. Holder knows no state that he is not willing to sue if the state dares to uphold the immigration laws of our land. Holder knows no voter identification laws that he is not willing to block. This desperately wicked man is a clear and present danger to our great Republic. In a sane world, Eric Holder would be in prison for treason against the United States.

This past week we saw even more outrages by the DOJ; in one case, its voting division. On Thursday, the head of the voting division ordered the state of Florida to stop purging its voter rolls of ineligible voters. This is utter insanity. The DOJ is trying to use the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which sought to protect minorities, to justify its stupid demand. It is also claiming Florida is violating the 1993 National Voter Registration Act, the so-called “Motor Voter Act,” which was inspired by the radical, socialist duo Cloward and Piven.

The Miami Herald reported that Florida may fight the DOJ’s interpretation of federal voter law.

How can anyone not see that this administration is clearly at war with America itself? Florida is purging its voter rolls of illegal aliens, dead people and others who are ineligible to vote in Florida elections. Who in their right mind could possibly be against this? No one. Eric Holder and the rest of the commie freaks in this administration are not in their right mind, because they have no right mind. They are deranged enemies of America, and they are working their tails off trying to enable as much election fraud as they possibly can. They need all the fraudulent votes they can get their dirty hands on, because there is no way Obama can win a legal, honest election—even if he were actually eligible to be President in the first place!

It would be such a breath of fresh air if Florida told the DOJ goons to stick their foolish demand in their pipe and smoke it. As of this writing, there are no firm reports of Florida’s response to the DOJ. Of course, if Florida tells Holder to go pound sand, the DOJ will simply sue, just like they sued a Las Vegas casino last week.

Yes, the lawsuit maniacs at the DOJ are again burning up the court system against the Tuscany Hotel and Casino. If the DOJ sues you, then you know you must be doing something right. In this case, Tuscany was trying to carefully screen their job applicants to weed out illegal aliens. Oh, the horror! Tuscany only wants to employ American citizens. What a concept! It is a concept that is unacceptable to the criminal rats in the DOJ.

But, why is the DOJ pulling this stunt on this one casino? The answer could be the pure, vindictive thuggery of this gangster Obama regime.

As Jim Kouri wrote at Examiner.com,

“Some believe this lawsuit is nothing more than payback by the Obama DOJ since earlier this year the Tuscany Hotel and Casino booked a special conference by a law enforcement group that was not favorable to the Obama administration. The Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) has stated their goal is to ‘take back America from the unlawful incursions and overreach of state and federal governments and their agencies.’

 

Speakers at the event included Sheriff Joe Arpaio, Sheriff Bradley D. Rodgers, Sheriff Richard Mack, and Larry Pratt, founder and executive director of Gun Owners of America, none of whom are popular in the Obama White House or DOJ.”

So, when are the states, American businesses and the American people going to stand up to these despotic enemies of our country who have taken over our government? When will the states stand up to anti-American federal judges and their insane court rulings? When will we finally say to the Obama administration, “You’ve made your ruling, now let’s see if you can enforce it”?

It is no exaggeration to say that these people in this administration are on an aggressive mission to destroy this nation—from our Constitution to our economy to our freedoms, everything we hold dear is in their commie crosshairs. Many of us have been sounding like a broken record as we have been repeating ourselves on this point since before Obama was installed in the presidency.

In an American Thinker column from November 2009, Jim Simpson bluntly stated,

“These people are our enemies. They don't use guns, yet, but they are just as dangerous, determined, and duplicitous as the communists we faced in the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, and bush wars across the globe, and the Nazis we faced in World War II.

 

It is time we fully internalized and digested this fact, with all its ugly ramifications. These people have violated countless laws and could be prosecuted, had we the political power. Not only are their policies unconstitutional, but deliberately so -- the goal being to make the Constitution irrelevant. Their spending is off the charts and will drive us into hyperinflation, but it could be rescinded, had we the political power. These policies are toxic, but they could be stopped and reversed, had we the political power. Their ideologies are poisonous, but they could be exposed for what they are, with long jail sentences as an object lesson, had we the political power.”

This is what I keep saying is like trying to run in a nightmare, where your feet feel almost rooted to the ground: this desperate feeling of helplessness in the face of such blatantly criminal vermin in the Obama administration who are running a scorched earth campaign on our nation. If only we had the political power to bring worldly justice to them, to expel them from office, to strip them of power, to make them pay for their crimes against our country with the loss of their freedom.

I am still praying for that miracle in November’s elections, with a stronger lead in the House and a resounding super-majority victory for us in the Senate. Even though the thought of Mitt Romney being our nominee makes me sick, four more years of Obama and his minions would be grave for our nation.

Obama Suing Florida - and Vice Versa - Over Voter Registration
Townhall.com ^ | June 11, 2012 | Kevin Glass
Posted on June 11, 2012 10:27:02 PM EDT by Kaslin

The state of Florida recently engaged in a campaign to fight voter fraud, combing through their voter rolls to weed out illegitimately-registered voters. While they've been accused of invalidating legal voters' registrations, the effort has been having some modicum of success.

n the last few days, the Division of Elections released a list of the names of 86 voters it says have been removed by local supervisors because they were non-citizens between April 11 and June 8. About half of them are listed as having voted.
That, backers of the purge effort say, proves the need for the move, because it shows that some non-citizens have indeed registered and cast votes.

Florida Governor Rick Scott has been promoting his state's law as a necessary measure, especially absent the federal government's responsibility to combat voter fraud. But now, the Obama Administration is alleging that Florida is violating the Voting Rights Act and the National Voter Registration Act.

In an interview with Fox News on Monday, Scott also defended the initiative. He denied that the purge could unfairly target Latino residents, and he said he's just trying to fairly enforce the law.
"We need to have fair elections in our state. I want to make sure that when we have elections ... not one person's vote gets diluted by somebody that doesn't have the right to vote," Scott told Fox News. "We're doing the right thing. ... We have people that are voting illegally in our races -- that's not right."

As we had with Arizona and SB 1070, a red state is taking the responsibility on itself to enforce laws that the federal government is allegedly not enforcing - and the Obama Administration has responded in kind with another lawsuit.

Eric Holder Shows Nothing But Contempt For The Truth In Fast And Furious Scandal
investors.com ^ | 11 June, 2012 | NA
Posted on June 11, 2012 8:47:16 PM EDT by marktwain

The Law: A House committee has announced a June 20 vote on whether Attorney General Eric Holder is in contempt of Congress for withholding documents in the "Fast and Furious" scandal. It can't happen soon enough.

For more than a year, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has labored to find out the truth of White House involvement in the blood-drenched debacle known as "Fast and Furious."

For now, all that's known is the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives intentionally let straw purchasers buy 2,000 deadly weapons from U.S. gun dealers, and then let them "walk" across the border to arm Mexico's murderous cartels.

The official story has been the agency was just trying to trace them. Curiously, it has made no effort to do so.

It looks like a fig leaf against evidence pointing to a White House effort to encourage mayhem in Mexico as a means of building political momentum for gun control in the U.S., the old Obama administration pattern of politics taking precedence over duty to country.

Yet Holder and his White House bosses claim nobody knew a thing and the ATF was just full of bunglers.

Whatever the truth, the Justice Department is hiding something. Holder and his minions have withheld documents since February 2011 — about the time they were going into damage-control mode over the scandal — and these could reveal the truth about what the White House knew. Instead, they've stonewalled Congress.

Holder himself has misstated and backtracked on claims to the House Oversight Committee in the past year, while a National Security Council official who's advocated gun control in the past — the just-resigned Dan Restrepo — was in receipt of ATF emails.

Holder Refuses to Provide Testimony on Kagan’s Involvement in Obamacare
cnsnews.com ^ | 6/12/12 | Terence P. Jeffrey
Posted on June 12, 2012 8:54:14 PM EDT by ColdOne

These are three of the eight questions that Sessions submitted to Holder on Nov. 15, 2011 to be included as part of the official record of Holder’s testimony in an oversight hearing that the Senate Judiciary Committee held on Nov. 8, 2011. Sessions is a senior member of the committee.

Holder did not provide the committee with a formal response to Session's questions until June 7, 2012—seven months after Sessions submitted them.

When he finally did officially respond, Holder did not answer any of the questions.

Instead, in responding to each, he simply referred the Judiciary Committee to a letter Assistant Attorney General Ronald Weich had sent to Sessions on Feb. 24. This letter, in turn, responded to a letter Sessions had sent to Holder on Jan. 31 noting that Holder had not yet answered the questions that Session had submitted in November.

Weich’s February letter informed Sessions directly that the Justice Department would decline to answer his questions to Holder about Kagan’s involvement in Obamacare.

Meet the Radical DOJ Lawyer Suing Florida to Keep Foreigners on Voter Rolls
PJ Media ^ | 6-12-2012 | J. Christian Adams

Meet the Radical DOJ Lawyer Suing Florida to Keep Foreigners on Voter Rolls

J. Christian Adams
The DOJ filed a complaint against Florida today to stop Florida from removing ineligible non-citizens from the voter rolls. (Yesterday DOJ, disgracing long established tradition, leaked this impending news to a sycophantic blogger.) Florida has already discovered noncitizens who voted illegally in previous elections.

The lawsuit filed today seeks to stop Florida from purging non-citizens from Florida voting rolls. No word on whether Eric Holder’s Justice Department will be filing criminal charges against the foreigners who illegally registered to vote. Priorities lie elsewhere.

Let’s meet Jenigh Garrett, the radical DOJ Voting Section lawyer who filed the lawsuit today to stop Florida from removing non-citizens from the voter rolls. She is a long-time opponent of state election integrity laws, as are so many of the recent hires exposed by the PJ Media Every Single One series. From the report:

Jenigh Garrett: Ms. Garrett worked for approximately five years as an assistant counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDF), where she worked on voting-related litigation. She co-drafted the NAACP LDF’s amicus brief in Crawford v. Marion County Board of Elections, claiming that voter ID laws are unconstitutional (a position the Supreme Court rejected in an opinion by Justice John Paul Stevens).

Garrett also was a member of the organization’s litigation team in Hayden v. Paterson, arguing that felon disenfranchisement laws violate the Voting Rights Act (a position the Second Circuit rejected). She is a member of the American Constitution Society and recently gave a presentation at Yale Law School on “The Future of Black Legal Scholarship and Activism.” Although DOJ’s FOIA shop notably redacted her other activities on her resume, perhaps legislators in Virginia can ask her about them: she is the redistricting point of contact for the Commonwealth.


Jenigh Garrett

(Read at PJ Media about another lawyer on the complaint, Elise Shore).

I describe in detail in Injustice how the radical anti-election integrity agenda of the Left is now burrowed into the Voting Section at the Justice Department advancing this agenda using your tax dollars. Now these lawyers are perverting Section 8 of Motor Voter, a provision designed to fix the problems in Florida, not preserve them.

Two items of note. In the complaint, the DOJ did not bring the threatened case under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. DOJ claimed in a letter that the voter purge procedure had not been precleared by DOJ under the Voting Rights Act. People familiar with Florida’s election procedures tell me that threat was baseless, that all of the laws and rules had been precleared.

Lastly, PJ Media has been reporting for two years how the Eric Holder DOJ refuses to bring Section 8 cases under Motor Voter to force states to clean up their voter rolls. Indeed, I first broke news about these corrupt instructions in July 2010, instructions which DOJ has never specifically denied, because they can’t. A former Justice Department official tells me tonight it is “deliciously ironic that the first and only NVRA Section 8 case brought by the Justice Department is one seeking to block the removal of ineligible voters.”

I’m usually a fan of delicious irony, but this latest outrage from Obama’s embattled Attorney General marks a new corrupt low, even for him.

Eric Holder’s Corrupt Agenda
 FrontPage Magazine ^ | June 14, 2012 | Arnold Ahlert

Eric Holder’s Corrupt Agenda

Posted By Arnold Ahlert On June 14, 2012 @ 12:50 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 3 Comments


On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced it was filing a lawsuit against Florida over the state’s push to clean its voter roles of dead and foreign voters. The move comes on the heels of Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, scheduling a vote by his panel on June 20th aimed at holding U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents in the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal. While the corrupt practices of Holder’s DOJ may finally be getting the attention they deserve, it is also becoming apparent that the department is not just degrading the principles of law and order to advance a radical leftist agenda — but to enhance president’s Obama’s re-election chances by any means necessary.

The DOJ’s lawsuit against Florida is little more than the latest evidence of the highly politicized nature of the department and the man at its helm. As mentioned above, the state has been singled out for attempting to purge its voter rolls of non-citizens. Yet as testimony by former DOJ attorney J. Christian Adams to the House of Representatives revealed, the department has taken exactly the opposite approach with other states, “deliberately refusing to enforce Section 8 and require states to purge rolls because of philosophical disagreement with the purging statute.” He further testified that during his time in the Voting Section, “political appointees expressed open and outright hostility to enforcing Section 8.”

The DOJ’s sudden interest in enforcing Section 8 in Florida rests on two contentions. One, that Florida has conducted its effort “within the 90-day quiet period before an election for federal office established by the law” and that “Florida’s use of inaccurate and unreliable voter verification procedures violates the requirement in Section 8 of the NVRA that any such program be uniform and nondiscriminatory.”

Both contentions are easily debunked. On Tuesday, Republican Governor Rick Scott revealed that Florida has been forced to use state databases to cleanse voter rolls because the Department of Homeland Security has refused to allow his state access to the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE), a national immigration database needed to confirm citizenship status. According to Scott, the DHS  has stonewalled the state for nine months. This undercuts both of the DOJ’s arguments, even as it reveals the Orwellian nature of an Obama administration willing to deny Florida a more reliable database and timely access to it, while suing the state for “violations” it forced the state to preform.

Scott has taken notice. He announced that Florida will file suit for access. “We’ve done all the right things,” he said in an appearance on CNN’s “Starting Point.” “We’re put in a position where we don’t have a choice but to sue them to get access to a database…to make sure that your right as a citizen is not diluted by a non-citizen.” Scott also revealed the critical reason why. “We tried to use our own database to do it…even with that database, we’ve found 100 people not entitled to vote and we know 50 of them have voted.”

Florida is only the latest example of the blatant prejudice that emanates from the DOJ. Both Texas and South Carolina are being sued for enacting voter photo ID statutes despite a 6-3 ruling by the United States Supreme in 2008 upholding Indiana’s right to require such identification for voting. This implies that Eric Holder and company believe each state must file individual suits before SOTUS to achieve the same right.

The same prejudice is seen in lawsuits against states seeking to enforce immigration laws the DOJ routinely ignores. Arizona, Alabama, South Carolina, and Utah have all been targeted–even as not a single suit has been filed against any of the numerous “sanctuary cities” whose illegal alien-protecting statutes are unambiguous violations of federal immigration law. Taken as a whole the message is clear: anything that conflicts with the progressive agenda of the Obama administration becomes a target, while anything that accrues to it remains beneath the radar.

And the primary tactic for enforcing that message is crystal clear as well: delay, delay, delay. Delay the conclusion of a gunrunning scandal that may engulf high-ranking administration officials. Delay the implementation of voter photo ID requirements in defiance of a Supreme Court ruling permitting them. Delay the cleansing of tainted voter rolls that would weed out ineligible voters. Delay enforcing immigration laws in sanctuary cities and the implementation of laws designed to address illegal immigration. Delay for how long?

Until after the general election in November, at least.

With respect to voter ID laws, immigration statutes and voter rolls, such delays are likely a slam dunk. The wheels of justice grind slow, and there is no doubt that every effort will be made by the DOJ to appeal every decision that goes against them all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. And until Darrell Issa finally reached the limit of his patience, it was virtually certain that the Fast and Furious investigation, already more than a year old, would have continued past next November as well.

It probably will anyway. Speaking before a Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, Mr. Holder, much like Iranian nuclear negotiators, claimed he was willing to work out a compromise with the House Government and Oversight Committee. “I want to make sure it is very clear that I’m offering–I myself–to sit down with the [House] speaker, the chairman, with you and work our way through this in an attempt to avoid a constitutional crisis and come up with ways, creative ways, in which to make these materials available,” Holder told Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA). Grassley remained skeptical. “Here we are, one year later, and the Terry family is still waiting for answers, they’re still waiting for justice,” he said.

Yet Holder’s newfound attitude apparently resonated with Issa. Yesterday he sent a letter to Holder urging him to make the Committee an offer.

“Let me be clear–if the Department of Justice submits a serious proposal for how it intends to alter its refusal to produce critical documents subpoenaed by the Committee, I am ready and willing to meet to discuss your proposal,” Issa wrote. No other conditions were set by Issa, but Sen. Grassley kept up the pressure. He wants to see the 80,000 documents that were subpoenaed, of which the DOJ has so far produced only 7,600.  Grassley told Fox News that he would be satisfied only “when they cough up” the rest of those documents.

As for timeliness regarding the investigation, i.e. the public disclosure of top secret national security secrets, forget it. Even with the appointment of a special prosecutor in the far less serious “outing” of CIA agent Valerie Plame, that investigation took two years. The president opposes the appointment of a special counsel in this case, leaving Eric Holder to conduct the investigation. Holder has appointed two prosecutors, Ronald Machen, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, and Rod Rosenstein, the U.S. attorney for the District of Maryland, to direct “separate probes that are already being conducted by the FBI.” The phrase separate probes suggests that, at some point those probes will have to be reconciled, undoubtedly lengthening the time of an investigation.

Whether the American public can put the pieces of these various efforts together remains to be seen. They’re certainly not going to get any help from the mainstream media. For example, CNN has characterized potential contempt charges against Holder as “politics,” while Tuesday marked the first time NBC news saw fit to cover Fast and Furious at all. Apparently some prominent players in the Fourth Estate are every bit as invested in obscuring reality as Eric Holder and the Obama administration. All of them remain fully committed to getting Barack Obama to the finish line in November relatively unscathed and unchallenged by legitimate concerns about the voting process.

And their tactic is as simple as it is corrupt. It is best described by an old aphorism: justice delayed is justice denied.

The top three reasons Eric Holder should be held in contempt
dailycaller.com ^ | 14 June, 2012 | Rep. Paul Gosar
Posted on June 14, 2012 9:40:37 PM EDT by marktwain

On June 20, the House Oversight Committee will meet to decide whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. All of this stems from Operation Fast and Furious, a government-run gun-running program that had no clear goals, no real oversight and, by many accounts, was intended to cause violence that could be used as a pretext to chip away at Americans’ Second Amendment rights. I predict that the House Oversight Committee, of which I am a member, will find him in contempt. That would be the right outcome. Here are the top three reasons why:

1) Holder won’t comply with our subpoena. Congress has been requesting Department of Justice records about Fast and Furious since March 2011. Getting no real voluntary cooperation (and getting a lot of double talk and delay), we issued a subpoena in October 2011. It is Holder’s refusal to comply with that subpoena in good faith that is bringing this vote to the committee. We are due over 10,000 documents.

2) Holder has been less than forthcoming. The attorney general has not been candid with the committee. Some say Holder has perjured himself on what he knew about Fast and Furious and when he knew it. He has had to issue one too many “corrections” to his testimony after the fact. Most famously, Holder’s department first told us that no gun-running had occurred, then once the truth was discovered, the DOJ “retracted” that testimony — after a year of misleading the people.

3) Holder hasn’t held anyone accountable. Guns distributed through this DOJ program have been used to kill Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry as well as hundreds of Mexicans. Holder has refused to accept responsibility for the deaths on both sides of the border and has refused to hold anyone under his authority, particularly political appointees, accountable.

Holder’s efforts to delay this investigation and mislead the House Oversight Committee are unprecedented. This is only the fourth time in the past 30 years that Congress has sought to hold an executive branch member in contempt, but, as I’ve noted, the contempt proceedings are warranted by the facts and, quite frankly, overdue.

Finally, I am the sponsor of H. Res. 490, which is seeking a vote of no confidence in Holder. Regardless of whether Holder is held in contempt, we should vote on my resolution of no confidence. So far, 114 members of Congress are supporting it. I have lost confidence in Holder and so have the American people.

Rep. Paul Gosar, a Republican, represents Arizona’s First Congressional District. He is a member of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Yes... Gonzales is worse.


He suspended habeus corpus, supported secret prisons, justification of torture, ignoring geneva conventions, and he pressed John Ashcroft in a hospital room to sign off even more extreme measures to "fight terrorism" and yeah... he's fucking worse.

You think sending guns over is bad... and I DO TOO... but to suspend habeus corpus against US fucking citizens is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what his job is supposed to be doing.

So um... Yes...worse.

But... fucking forget Gonzales if you want to and speak on my other mentions?

Hell, how about  Harry Daugherty who escaped Prison because of 2... count 'em... 2 hung juries because of his fraud in the in the Teapot Dome Scandal of the 1920s.

So you still want to act like Holder is the "worst" ever?

Get out of here with that nonsense and look into some history of the position... There's a lot of shit bags worse than Holder who've held that office.

As I said.. Holder is like top 5.

Holder has done the same thing by supporting NDAA, drone strikes on Americans, etc.

Yes. But he didn't set the precedent.

Gonzales did that.

Also. I mentioned 3 other worse AGs in the history of the US and you ignored them completely.

Why?

Black Panthers

Politicized the justice department beyond anything

Suing states over voter ID

Suing businesses based on bizarre interpretations of foreign law



and on and on and on and on.

I disagree.

That is because you are being selective in your opinion based on hatred of bush, which is fine, but the facts disagree with you since holder did everything those people did, and then he coupled a whole of items even worse RESULTING IN THE DEATHS OF OVER 300 PEOPLE, which makes him worse.

Not at all.

Again... I've listed NUMEROUS AGs who are worse than Holder... NUMEROUS. They didn't work for Bush.

Holder faces corruption scandal, too
WND ^ | 6-13-12 | Jerome R. Corsi
Posted on June 16, 2012 6:42:38 PM EDT by Tigen

At a time when millions of Americans are losing their homes as a result of questionable or fraudulent mortgage banking practices, Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department is being accused of blocking prosecution of a high-visibility real estate deal. Snip Allegedly, Holder and Breuer want to shield from federal criminal prosecution the bank, Credit Suisse Group AG, a client of the Washington-based law firm Covington & Burling, as well as key Democratic Party operatives suspected of playing a role in allegedly fraudulent mortgage financing and bank lending practices.
