Holder: Can you believe the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday?

posted at 7:21 pm on April 9, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

The almost textbook outrageously-outraged followup to Holder’s confrontation with Louie Gohmert during a House hearing on Tuesday. Ugh.

I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and lasting reforms, even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted ugly and divisive adversity. And if you don’t believe that, you look at the way — forget about me, forget about me — you look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee. It had nothing to do with me, forget about that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?

“It had nothing to do with me”? Well, actually, it one hundred percent had absolutely everything to do with you — and not because of the reason (hint: rhymes with “bassist”) you’re rather unsubtly implying, either. It might, however, have had something to do with the fact that your department within the Obama administration has ‘unprecedentedly coordinated a scandalously failure of a deadly gunwalking operation that you’re still trying to downplay and dismiss while continuing to obfuscate the investigation thereof by refusing to hand over all of the relevant documentation. “What attorney general has ever been treated this way”? Wrong question, “buddy.”

Have you seen the way the Attorney General has treated Americans who are not “his people”?

vityas on April 9, 2014 at 7:33 PM

The Attorney General is nothing but a criminal.

Contempt of Congress is defined in statute, 2 U.S.C.A. § 192, enacted in 1938, which states that any person who is summoned before Congress who “willfully makes default, or who, having appeared, refuses to answer any question pertinent to the question under inquiry” shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a maximum $1,000 fine and 12 month imprisonment.

Holder has been convicted of Contempt of Congress, and is therefore according to US Law, a criminal.

House holds Holder in contempt

Washington (CNN) — The House of Representatives voted Thursday to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to turn over documents tied to the botched Fast and Furious gun-running sting — a discredited operation that has become a sharp point of contention between Democrats and Republicans in Washington.

The House approved a pair of criminal and civil measures against the attorney general, marking the first time in American history that the head of the Justice Department has been held in contempt by Congress.

House members approved the criminal contempt measure in a 255-67 vote. Almost every House Republican backed the measure, along with 17 Democrats. Shortly thereafter, the civil measure passed in a sharply polarized 258-95 vote.

This guy’s feeling his oats. Wasn’t much more than a year ago that even some left-wing outlets were calling for his resignation, but Obama knows that he’s untouchable to the press – that everything will always blow over because the press won’t pursue pursue any negative story with him for more than a week.

He was treated better than he deserves.

So he goes out to Sharpton’s mob today and yet again perpetrates sleazy race-baiting. He has politicized and racialized the DOJ, repeatedly lied to Congress and stonewalled its lawful subpoenas. When they fail to kiss his a$$ while he engages in further deceit during a congressional hearing, it must be racism.

Utterly contemptible.

novaculus on April 9, 2014 at 7:46 PM

If you step back and look at this administration, ever since the 2010 election, they’ve been all about confrontation. The voters gave the Republicans the House. The Democrats, rather than accept that, decided the best plan was to work around the House and that’s exactly what they’ve done.

I’m not sure about the constitutionality of that, but I do know that Boehner has done nothing about it, by way of forcing the Senate to deal with the House. The House, and only the House, has the power of the purse. What have they done with it? They’ve signed Continuing Resolutions (CR’s) which effectively eliminates the House’s Power of the Purse. In my mind, stupid.

Holder can cry all he wants, what he can’t do is point to how he’s cooperated with the House. Obama can cry and scream all he wants, about how the House won’t deal with him, but when has he proposed a deal. Obama is afraid to propose a deal because there might be a counter-deal that looks good and he’d have to refuse it, which wouldn’t be good politically.

The only reason Heath Care is so screwed up is because of Obama and his disjointed view of politics. He refuses to do anything for fear of the criticism, of what he’s done, affecting him politically.

A white democrat saying something so openly racist, dividing, and partisan would be let off the hook. Much like a gun grabbing donk that was illegally trafficking in arms….Hey what’s with democrat politicians and trafficking in illegal sales of illegal weapons. Yeah, I’m looking at the corrupt, criminal, and racist Eric Holder.

bflat879 on April 9, 2014 at 7:49 PM

The Senate, under the pederast Harry Reid, will not deal with House. Reid, like Obama, wants the confrontation.

They both know the power of the sycophantic ‘Ministry of Truth’, the progressive fascist propaganda arm also known as the mainstream media. They both also know that the mainstream media will relentlessly attack, demagogue, twist, and lie in order to protect the WH / Senate. They also know that this same tool will run with the meme that any ‘shutdown’ will be the sole fault of the evil GOP majority “Congress” – with millions of sheeple and LIV believing it.

Added to this is the cowardly behavior of the GOP House Leadership – who not only refuse to adopt / create a bully pulpit to fight this, but for the most part believes that the best course for the nation is to move down the same road as the progressive fascists, but just at a slightly slower pace. Their fear prevents them from welcoming a confrontation with the corrupt and mendacious press – and using every tool to discredit them and their ideological overlords. Like the Vichy French, the Vichy Republicans believe that compliance is the best course of action.

bflat879 on April 9, 2014 at 7:49 PM

Obama reneges on any deals he makes with Republicans. The Sequester was his Special Select Committee’s plan that he heavily endorsed as something great that was a solid Bi-partisan comprise. Once it actually was put into place he squealed like a stuck pig that the Republicans were baby killers and they wanted to cause the end of the world with their plan to cut government spending.

Obama can’t be trusted to keep any deals he makes. Pray he doesn’t alter the deal further.

oldennis on April 9, 2014 at 8:10 PM

I’ll tell you something, though, this type of thing is exactly where the Republicans fall down in the fight. Gohmert needs to punch back twice as hard on this. He should call a press conference in the Rotunda and some others on the committee should be there to back him up and he should call Holder out on this smear and double down by calling him a thug and a criminal who hides behind the color of his skin for protection from criticism.

Republicans shouldn’t let a single Dem smear, insult, or lie go unchallenged.

In fact I guess it’s fair to say these scumbags cry racism at every opportunity. The LIVs eat it up too. Just look at Hank Aaron, a wonderful man but no politician, and you can see how people are buying this load of manure lock stock and barrel. Republicans and their politics are just “two eye holes from a Klan robe”, to quote Ace, or so says Eric Holder, a their of taxpayer money, an evader of Congressional oversight and a crook who sold his integrity to Marc Rich many moons ago.

“Contempt” only just begins to describe how I see Holder, but he just cries “racism” in response.

No kidding. It’s easy to forget how pervasive and constant the Bush bashing was. I was reminded yesterday when I started a novel published in 2008 about the evolution of a relationship over five decades, which sounded interesting, but had to put it aside because the author decided to use one character’s daughter to indulge in rants about what I am sure was the author’s disgust and hatred of Bush. I finally stopped our subscription to the Bush-hating Statesman after seeing a graphic accompanying an article about choosing street names (!) in Austin with two cross streets labeled with anti-Bush sentiments. The Bush hate was relentless, in the media and in Hollywood. This whiny coward hasn’t had to endure much of any criticism about anything, including a gun-running scandal that would have destroyed any Republican’s career. It’s telling how close his feet are getting to the fire if he is dragging out the race card.

Congress asked the DOJ to press charges against Holder, but – of course – they wouldn’t do so againsat their BOSS who hand-picked all of them. Congress was left with no other option but to CENSURE Holder. This makes Attorney General Eric Holder the only U.S. Attorney General in U. S. history to be Censured.

Never one to let being punished for breaking the law slow him down, he lied again to Congress (another Felony Count of Perjury) not long after this by telling Congress he knew nothing about the spying on the AP. When the evidence surfaced, he was forced to admit to Congress that not ONLY did he know about it, not ONLY did HE order it, but he admitted he went ‘Judge Shopping’ to find a judge that would finally approve the spying on of the AP’s Reporters, Editors, and their FAMILIES!

Holder is a CRIMINAL, a POLITICIAN, and Obama’s proverbial ‘guard’ protecting him from asll of the on-going scandals, but what Holder is NOT is an ‘Attorney General’. Holder went as far as to declare to the press that the ‘unfair’ treatment he received, that Obama receives, is because they are BLACK and not becuase he is a CRIMINAL who has broken the law and who is failing terribly in the position in which he was entrusted to run.

Several years ago, during the mid-term of Bush’s final term, when Democrats took both the House and Senate, the Democrats engaged in a REAL ‘Witch Hunt’, trying to find ANYTHING they could to inflict ‘payback’ for Clinton by Impeaching Bush. After hundreds of hours of investigation and committee hearings, over a dozen committees, thousands of pages of documents and e-mails obtained and searched, and millions of tax dollars wasted, the Democrats were desperate to show this whole ‘Witch Hunt’ was justifiable…they NEEDED a conviction. So, Eric Holder arrested and jailed Bush administration official Scooter Libby for Perjury before Congress because he could not remember something he did on an exact day – it even had NOTHING to do with Bush. And NOW, the man who put Libby in jail, has perpetrated no less than 4 (FOUR) Felony Counts of Perjury before Congress during 2 seperate investigations!

‘Unfair treatment’? Atty General, you are a criminal, a pathetic piece of political trash who has betrayed your oath of office, betrayed the Rule of law, betrayed the American people you are supposed to be serving, and your @$$ should be in JAIL. You may not LIKE those words and those FACTS, but you certainly can’t justifiably call them ‘UNFAIR’! On the contrary, they are well deserved and have been EARNED!

What an absolute piece of garbage this sorry excuse for a human really is. When you have the facts, argue the facts; when you have the law, argue the law; and when you have neither, as Holder and Obama do, scream racism. Well brother, I’ve got news for you, that card was worn out several years ago. You are now nothing more than an embarrassment to society and your profession.

I think it’s time that we finally admit that the entire universe is racist.

My alarm clock is racist.

Traffic is racist.

Eye boogers are racist.

Lines at the gas station are racist.

The sun in my eyes is racist.

The goose I almost hit this morning is racist.

Potholes are racist.

My toothbrush is racist.
