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.

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.

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

jc

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

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.

Shock Testmony for Benghazi Wittnesses before House Committee

jc

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

 

Sadly I’m left with a sinking feeling that the House Committee could have audio and video evidence of Obama telling Hillary to have our special operators not rescue Americans during the attack on the CIA gun running outpost earlier called the Benghazi Embassy and nothing will happen.

This entire investigation should have been conducted with a Watergate special prosecutor. Not another house investigation. The witnesses, Clinton, Holder and Obama are skilled perjurers, shall the verdict be read already?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
 

Hoping to funnel into one chronological timeline the rampantly varying accounts of how President Obama’s administration responded last Sept. 11 in the wake of an attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday will hear from three “whistleblowers” expected to offer testimony enormously at odds with the administration’s characterization of a strike that killed four Americans.

images-4

Looks like Hillary isn’t getting here way during the original Benghazi hearings.

Testifying are Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant Secretary of State for counterterrorism; Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya; and Eric Nordstrom, former regional security officer in Libya. Excerpts of an interview Hicks did with investigators that were released to CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday boomeranged the Benghazi politics back into the spotlight four months after hearings on the issue in the House and Senate.

According to Hicks, “everybody in the mission” believed it was an act of terror “from the get-go.” But on Sept. 16 – five days after the attack – U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice hit the Sunday show circuit, peddling the theory that the strike began “spontaneously” out of protests in Egypt and was not a premeditated terrorist act. Rice’s spot on “Face the Nation” that day was preceded by the new president of Libya, Mohammed al-Magariaf, who said his government had “no doubt that this was pre-planned, predetermined.”

“I’ve never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career, as on that day,” Hicks told investigators of Rice’s appearances.

The top official in Libya after Amb. Chris Stevens died in the attack, Hicks said he was never consulted about the administration’s talking points that puppeteered Rice’s remarks: “I was personally known to one of Rice’s staff members,” he said. “Even on Sunday morning, I could have been called, and, you know, the phone call could have been, ‘Hey, Greg, Amb. Rice is going to say blah, blah, blah,’ and I could have said, ‘No, that’s not the right thing.’ That phone call was never made.”

Administration officials have staunchly stood by Rice, whose vilification after the attack cost her top billing on the short list to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. At a Tuesday night gala at which Rice was receiving an award, Vice President Joe Biden said she had “the absolute, total, complete confidence of the president.”

Critics, though, of the Benghazi “cover-up” have continued to rally attention to the White House’s bungled talking points, as well as reports that the State Department deliberately declined requests for additional security in Benghazi.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who will oversee Wednesday’s hearing, told CBS News on Monday that the administration’s ever-evolving statements were likely perpetrated by political concerns, three weeks out of a major election. Or, he suggested, “it could be a general want to believe that we’re closer to an end of the war on terror than right in the middle of it.”

Issa said he expects this week to find someone from Clinton’s circle – if not the former secretary of state herself – at the heart of covering tracks after any missteps by the administration. Clinton testified on Benghazi in January before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, where she took responsibility but conceded there was no “clear picture” of what happened Sept. 11 as the situation unraveled.

“If Hillary Clinton is not responsible for the before, during and after mistakes… it’s somebody close,” Issa said. “There certainly are plenty of people close to the former secretary who knew, and apparently were part of the problem.”

Those close to Clinton who may have engaged in “deliberately, premeditated lying to the American people,” Issa said, could include Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy or Beth Jones, acting assistant secretary for near eastern affairs at the State Department. Hicks said one day after Rice’s media blitz, he called Jones to inquire about the source for the ambassador’s statements; the tone of her answer – “I don’t know,” he continued – indicated that “I perhaps asked a question that I should not have asked.”

On his Tuesday morning radio program, Glenn Beck discussed the latest wave of revelations on the September 11 Benghazi attack that killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
The new information comes from whistle-blowers, and details have been confirmed by TheBlaze’s sources, Beck said, including that ”there was a ‘stand down order’ given to that Special Forces team.”
“I will tell you that on the Benghazi thing, I came out three, four days into it and I said: ‘This is what I believe is happening.’  And I laid the story out,” Beck said. “And so far everything but the gun-running is panning out.  And I was told by a source last night that the gunrunning thing is a foregone conclusion, everyone in Washington, they all know it was gunrunning to Syrian rebels, which are now headed by the Muslim Brotherhood guy from Dallas, Texas.  The circle is complete.”
He added: “The media had this story dead to rights, they could’ve easily done this story and it would’ve changed the course of the election, but instead, now we have to go through scandal for the next three years.  We’re going to have to question Clinton and everybody in the State Department.”  (Entire article below)
