Why Holder Quit The back story of how Obama lost his ‘heat shield’


crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Interestingly, Glenn Thrush at Politico left out the probably reason for Holder’s resignation. 

It seems clear that the House oversight committee was about to indict him, in fact in a recent post,” Breaking: Contempt of Congress case against Holder will proceed,” it looks like they are going after this racist scum.

It’s oddly fitting that Attorney General Eric Holder – a stubbornly independent career prosecutor ridiculed by Barack Obama’s advisers for having lousy political instincts— would nail his dismount.

But Holder, who began his stormy five-plus-year tenure at the Justice Department with his controversial “Nation of Cowards” speech, has chosen what seems to be the ideal (and maybe the only) moment to call it quits after more than 18 months of musing privately about leaving with the president and senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, a trio bound by friendship, progressive ideology and shared African-American ancestry.

It was now or never, several current and former administration officials say, and Holder – under pressure to retire from a physician wife worried about a recent health scare, checked the “now” box. “It was a quit-now or never-quit moment,” one former administration official said. “You didn’t want confirmation hearings in 2015 if the Republicans control the Senate. So if he didn’t do it now, there was no way he could ever do it.”

Holder—described by associates as President Obama’s “heat shield” on race and civil rights—sprung it on the president over the Labor Day holidays. Obama didn’t bother to push back as he has in the past, even though staffers say he winces at the prospect of a long confirmation battle, whomever he chooses for the nation’s top law enforcement job.

Why do people come to America?

Dave is a frequent contributor as Anon. 

Last night we discussed this topic and I asked him if he would share his thoughts with all of our readers.

 

Outstanding job Dave, just some editing and not much to add with the exception of this question.

Under the current tyrannical rule of the Obama administration and his progressive ilk, how long will the freedom sought  by those who want to come here prevail?

Progressives must be crushed in the elections of 2014 and 2016.
Many people from different countries come to America every year – WHY?

The most obvious reason is the opportunity America offers to people to exercise their entrepreneurial creativeness. The opportunity to benefit from the fruits of their own efforts, labors and energy – to get ahead and have a good life when they are willing to work.

If these immigrants were happy with their status and conditions in their own countries then they would stay there and prosper and thrive and reap the benefits of their labors, but they were not happy with their governments and country so they came to America

The conditions in America were created by some Common Core beliefs and laws in America, not the Common Core agenda which is being rebuked by our schools.

The Law and Justice is governed by U. S, Constitutional Law.  The U. S. Constitution requires that the Rule of Law prevails in America.

stop 2

 

Another Common Core belief is that all America must speak, read and write American English.

This basic principle has been the common denominator that has allowed all Americans to communicate and resolve differences.

Now, if current or prospective immigrants do not like these very simple rules of law in America that date back to the founding of America that is not a problem.

These people must not be allowed to bring their failed language and laws into America.

If their own country’s laws and language are what they really want then stay home and make changes within their own country.  All Immigrants must learn to follow American laws and speak our American language – NO EXCEPTIONS!

Immigrants must work in America to get money and food.

The immigrants cannot expect to receive any money, food, health care or benefits by just immigrating to America.

Americans need all need to stand up to these ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS and demand that they be responsible and accountable for their actions and behavior.

The most recent example of ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS is the young children coming into America from the south. 

undocumented-democrats-crossing-illegal-aliens

The first question to ask is who is organizing and transporting these kids to America? 

Certainly the focus must be on how and why are these kids being delivered to America?

THEN, why is the government allowing this immigration to happen without doing something to fix the problem?

barack-obama-eric-holder-criminals

The Department of Justice must be held accountable for its failure to enforce the immigration laws.  Eric Holder and his boss Barrack Obama are directly responsible for this entire immigration problem.

Time for the House of Representatives to Initiate Impeachment Articles on these two people – NO MORE FAILURES!

The California Senators Feinstein and Boxer along with Nancy Pelosi must do their duty to uphold and defend the U. S. Constitution!  Of course, there are other Senators and Congressmen who must do their sworn duty when they took their Oath of Office.

More to follow on other issues of National Security, U. S. Constitutional Law, Health Care and including the economics of defending America.

God Bless America,

Holder to set new racial profiling rules for federal agents

How Politically Correct!

Let’s be perfectly clear the name Eric Holder is nothing but politically correct words for Knee Grow.

So we were attacked by Muslims who many not be profiled or screened by the TSA, in Holder/Obama speak it all makes perfect sense.

Washington will expand racial profiling’s meaning to ban U.S. agents from including religion, national origin, gender or sexual orientation, an official said.

Attorney General Eric Holder told New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio about his Justice Department plans to expand the federal definition of racial profiling during a meeting in New York, an official told the New York Times.

Holder and de Blasio did not discuss when the rule change would be announced, the official said.

Holder, feds seeking to bypass Supreme Court on voting issues

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Some like Holder, would like to keep this a states rights issue as it is today. think about it if you will in voting for national elections and national representatives at the federal level, how can the Supreme Court not revisit this issue.

What else would the reader expect.  If a true voter identification card were required how would democrats ever win another election.

On the battle over the government shutdown, the Obama administration narrative continues to be that Republicans shut down the government because they didn’t get their way on Obamacare. There may be some truth to that, but if so, Republicans don’t have the market cornered on playing hardball for do-overs on public policy.

President Obama and his surrogates continue to repeat that narrative at every opportunity. Clearly, the Obama administration doesn’t see the parallel between GOP actions on Obamacare and the very same tactics on the part of the Obama administration’s U.S. Justice Department on the issue of voter ID and the recent Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act.

8c7ifz

The argument that Voter ID equates with voter suppression is bogus, and the majority of the Supreme Court has ruled that Section 5 unfairly discriminates against a region of the country.

On the topic of Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has been downright defiant in protecting the institutionalization of laws from the 1960s that profile Southern states as racist havens of voter discrimination.

First came litigation in Texas, and now Holder is taking North Carolina to court to argue that new elections laws there are intentionally discriminatory and that Section 3 of the VRA would make the state subject to Justice Department preclearance as Section 5 did.

Section 5 of the 1965 Voting Rights Act established nine states that were declared “covered jurisdictions” under the new laws. “Covered jurisdiction” states, counties and municipalities cannot implement voting law changes without federal “preclearance” by the Justice Department.

States included in the “covered jurisdiction” by the Voting Rights Act include: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

The Supreme Court ruled recently that Section 5 must be a national approach rather than a narrowly drawn safeguard. The court invited Congress to draw a new formula.

Essentially, the court said requiring Justice Department pre-clearance for election law changes for only the covered jurisdiction states represented an unfair application of the law that ignored racial progress in those states over the last 50 years.

Eric Holder, IRS officials coached tax-exempt black ministers on how to engage in political activity


crew-223

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

This is blatantly racist, why weren’t white ministers included?

Well add this to the malfeasance committed by Obama and his attorney general, Eric “The Red” Holder. 

Only thing to say about it is that both will go down as the two biggest failures in U.S. History and they will continue to get away with it until a congress is put in place with some estrogen and testosterone in their bodies. 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

The Daily Caller
Patrick Howley

Attorney General Eric Holder and IRS officials advised black ministers on how to engage in political activity during the 2012 election without violating their tax-exempt status.

Holder, then-IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman, and Peter Lorenzetti, a senior official in the scandal-plagued agency’s exempt organizations division, participated in a May 2012 training session for black ministers from the Conference of National Black Churches at the U.S. Capitol hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC). Holder spoke at the event.

“We’re going to, first of all, equip them with the information they need to know about what they can say and what they cannot say in the church that would violate their 501(c)(3) status with the IRS,” said then-CBC chairman Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, a Democrat from Missouri. “In fact, we’re going to have the IRS administrator there. We’re going to have Attorney General Eric Holder there…the ACLU.”

Cleaver’s session advised black ministers on “draconian laws” including voter ID laws. Cleaver was a sharp critic during the 2012 campaign of Republican Mitt Romney’s policies.

As The Daily Caller has extensively reported, the IRS harassed conservative and tea party groups during the 2012 election cycle with improper reviews of their 501(c)(3) tax-exempt applications.

“[The CBC] had the IRS members there specifically to advise them on how far to go campaigning without violating their tax-exempt status,” George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley told The Daily Caller.

“I viewed the meeting as highly problematic. Eric Holder heads the agency that prosecutes organizations who give false information to the government. The Justice Department coordinates with the IRS on actions taken against not-for-profits. These ministries are given not-for-profit status on the basis that they are not engaging in any political activities. Here, the Obama administration was clearly encouraging them to maximize their efforts by showing them where the lines were drawn in federal case-law,” Turley said.

Holder Revives Bogus Civil-Rights Investigation against Zimmerman

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

When is enough, enough?  Why is Eric Holder unfamiliar with double jeopardy laws.

Perhaps Holder needs to be slapped upside the head and told that double jeopardy is not going on the same game show twice.

George Zimmerman, is and always innocent.

In the minds of the leftists in this administration the consult with the NAACP to come up with a new charge.

Family Security Matters

by ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

The Obama Justice Department is reviving its bogus civil-rights investigation of George Zimmerman, despite a Florida jury’s acquittal of Zimmerman on all charges. The trial demonstrated a dearth of evidence that he intended to kill Trayvon Martin, much less that he killed him with an intent to deny his civil rights. The New York Daily News reports on DOJ’s announcement:

“Experienced federal prosecutors will determine whether the evidence reveals a prosecutable violation of any of the limited federal criminal civil rights statutes within our jurisdiction, and whether federal prosecution is appropriate in accordance with the Department’s policy governing successive federal prosecution following a state trial,” the Department of Justice said.

The announcement came as welcome news to civil rights leaders, who began calling for the federal charges almost immediately after the verdict was read in Seminole County court in Sanford, Fla.

“We are outraged and heartbroken over today’s verdict,” NAACP President Benjamin Jealous said in a statement.

Holder’s minions, it is worth remembering, consulted with the NAACP before the Justice Department dropped the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case that the government had already won.

With due respect to Peggy Noonan, the Justice Department is already deeply involved in, and couldn’t have more disgracefully politicized, the George Zimmerman case. There would have been no Florida prosecution of Zimmerman absent the extortionate pressure brought to bear by Attorney General Eric Holder.

We knew that even before learning last week that Justice’s “Community Relations Division” (Alinsky-style rabble-rousing under the guise of “peacemaker”) colluded at taxpayer expense with the NAACP and other agitators to demand that charges be brought against Zimmerman – managing, in the process, to get Sanford police chief Bill Lee cashiered for daring to do his job faithfully, tune out the politics, and decline to arrest Zimmerman because the evidence didn’t support it.

Top IRS official will invoke the Fifth Amendment in congressional hearing about tea party targeting program

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper, and Patriot.

The only reason a witness would take the 5th Amendment in testimony of such magnitude is that they don’t or are unwilling to perjure  themselves.

This would not be problematic for Hillary, Obama, or Holder as perjury and Obstruction of Justice are their middle names.

The Daily Mail

By David Martosko

 

The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday afternoon that Lois Lerner, who heads up the Internal Revenue Service’s tax-exempt division, plans to invoke the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in a hearing Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Affairs.

The Fifth Amendment provides that U.S. citizens may not be compelled to offer testimony if telling the truth would incriminate them.

Lerner’s defense lawyer, William W. Taylor III, wrote to the committee on Tuesday that his client would refuse to answer questions related to what she knew about the extra levels of scrutiny applied to conservative nonprofit organizations that applied for tax-exempt status beginning in 2010.

Her lawyer says she will plead the Fifth Amendment on Wednesday to avoid answering questions about her agency's tea party scandal during a congressional hearingLois Lerner heads the IRS’s Exempt Organizations division.

IRS headquarters in Washington, D.C. is fast becoming the epicenter of the tea party probe, despite an Inspector General report that focused on employees in Cincinnati, OhioIRS headquarters in Washington, D.C. is fast becoming the epicenter of the tea party probe, despite an Inspector General report that focused on employees in Cincinnati, Ohio

She also will decline to say why she didn’t disclose what she knew to Congress, according to the LA Times.

Lerner ‘has not committed any crime or made any misrepresentation,’ Taylor’s letter read, ‘but under the circumstances she has no choice but to take this course.’

He is asking the oversight committee to excuse Lerner from testifying, claiming that calling her in a congressional hearing would ‘have no purpose other than to embarrass or burden her’ since members would not expect her to answer questions.

Ahmad Ali, a committee spokesman, told MailOnline that ‘Ms. Lerner remains under subpoena from Chairman Issa to appear at tomorrow’s hearing – the Committee has a Constitutional obligation to conduct oversight.’

‘Chairman [Darrel] Issa remains hopeful that she will ultimately decide to testify tomorrow about her knowledge of outrageous IRS targeting of Americans for their political beliefs.’

The IRS applied special criteria to conservative organizations seeking tax-exempt status, putting them on a ‘Be On The Lookout’ (BOLO) list, based on the groups’ names and political philosophies.

President Barack Obama has said he was unaware of the program until May 10, when excerpts of an IRS Inspector General Report on the practice were leaked to reporters.

Jay Carney, the Obama administration's designated flak-catcher, insists that the president didn't know about the IRS targeting tea party groups until he learned about it during a TV news broadcastJay Carney, the Obama administration’s designated flak-catcher, insists that the president didn’t know about the IRS targeting tea party groups until he learned about it during a TV news broadcast

But Jay Carney, the president’s chief spokesman, confirmed Monday that senior White House staff, including White House Counsel Kathy Ruemmler and Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, knew about the IRS’s habits as early as April 24, and chose not to tell Obama.

The Inspector General report found that Lerner and other IRS were notified in or before June 2011 that some staff in the agency’s Cincinnati, Ohio office were using ‘tea party,’ ‘patriots’ and other key words to add applicants to the BOLO list.

Once on that list, the groups were subjected to additional auditing of their financial practices, their membership and their political activities.

Despite knowing about the program, Lerner and other senior IRS staffers withheld the information from Congress despite receiving several requests from House committees whose members heard from constituents that their tea party groups’ tax-exempt approvals were taking as long as two years to be resolved.

The House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee was among those that specifically asked the IRS whether it was inspecting tea party groups more closely than other applicants, including those on the political left.

Under mounting pressure, President Barack Obama announced Wednesday in the East Room of the White House that acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller would be stepping downUnder mounting pressure, President Barack Obama announced May 15 in the East Room of the White House that acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller would be stepping down. It emerged hours later, however, that Miller’s term as acting commissioner was already scheduled to end in early June

Lerner herself launched her agency’s scandal with a planted question-and-answer exchange during a May 10 American Bar Association conference.

Asked the pre-arranged question, Lerner responded by conceding that her employees had acted inappropriately.

‘Instead of referring to the cases as advocacy cases, they actually used case names on this list,’ she told the assembled tax lawyers.

‘They used names like “tea party” or “Patriots,” and they selected cases simply because the applications had those names in the title.That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, insensitive, and inappropriate — that’s not how we go about selecting cases for further review.’

She later claimed that the increase in scrutiny of tea party groups was due to an influx of new applications from right-wing organizations, following the Supreme Court’s ‘Citizens United’ ruling, which opened the floodgates to greater political participation by nonprofit advocacy groups.

The Washington Post called that claim bogus, however, with the newspaper’s fact checker awarding it a ‘four Pinocchios’ rating for dishonesty.

‘Between 2010 and 2012, we started seeing a very big uptick in the number of 501(c)(4) applications we were receiving,’ Lerner claimed, but the Washington Post determined that wasn’t true.

Lerner’s boss, acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller, was relieved of his post by Treasury Secretary Jack Lew last week, although the term of his appointment to the job was already scheduled to end in early June.

Other higher-ups inside the IRS have not been publicly held accountable for the improper targeting of conservative organizations.
