Note: I shall a lot more to say about Eric Holder on this Sundays’ edition of The Teri O’Brien Show on Informed America Radio.
Yesterday I looked at the monitor here in my office and saw two men making some sort of announcement, apparently at the White House. One was a man obsessed with America’s irredeemable racism and contemptuous of the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution. The other was Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States, at least for the time being. Yes, Eric Holder has resigned, even though Mr. Holder shares Barack Obama’s race fixation, which the president displayed again with a cringe-inducing reference to the events in Ferguson, MO during a speech at the United Nations on September 24, 2014. If, while watching that disgusting comment by America’s president, you wondered what the robbery of a convenience market and local law enforcement’s subsequent actions have to do with vicious, raping, head-chopping terrorists, you obviously don’t get it. As Barack and Eric would explain, America sucks because it’s racist. End of story, Bitter Clinger. That should have been the title of the book Bill Ayers wrote based on that shoebox of notes Obama dropped off at his house.
An admitted and even proud activist first, and law enforcement officer second, Eric Holder is the perfect Attorney General for the Obama administration, not only because he shares Barack Obama’s racialist views and his lack of appreciation for our Founding. Like Barack, he is also “historic.” He is the only sitting Cabinet member to have been held in contempt of Congress, for his stonewalling on the Obama administration’s despicable anti-2nd amendment racket, the Fast and Furious gun walking scheme. As you well know, that ill-advised policy resulted in the murder of Border Agent Brian Terry in December, 2010.
I’m sure that it’s strictly coincidental that Mr. Holder’s resignation comes just as one of the two federal courts currently demanding that he and the Obama administration stop lying, stonewalling and obstructing justice in the Fast and Furious matter. As Judicial Watch, the organization that has doggedly insisted that Holder and Obama come clean, reports:
Judicial Watch announced today that on September 23, 2014, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that by October 22, the Department of Justice (DOJ) must submit a “Vaughn index” listing Fast and Furious materials Judicial Watch sought in its June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent September 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)). A Vaughn index must: (1) identify each document withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption.
On July 18, Bates ordered the Department of Justice to produce the documents list by October 1. The ruling by U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates denied a motion by the Obama DOJ that it be given until over an extra month, until November 3, to produce the Vaughn index. Judge Bates noted that the Justice Department’s request showed the Justice Department was, “at best, it means the Department has been slow to react to this Court’s previous [July 18, 2014] Order. At worst, it means the Department has ignored that Order until now.”
In its FOIA lawsuit, Judicial Watch sought all of the documents the Obama White House was withholding from the House of Representatives under its June 20, 2012, executive privilege claims. The House had been separately litigating to obtain the documents but had gotten nowhere until after Judge Bates ruled that the DOJ finally had to disclose the document information to Judicial Watch. On September 9, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, citing Judicial Watch’s success, ordered the DOJ to begin producing information to Congress by November 3.
Mr. Holder has many other “historic” achievements, demonstrating that he is the perfect Attorney General for what Mark Levin has called the “post-Constitutional” administration, including his admission that he never read the Arizona immigration law, which was a virtual restatement of the federal immigration laws that he refused to enforce, before characterizing it as “unconstitutional,” and his assertion that he recused himself from the (In)Justice Department’s secret investigation of AP reporters and editors, which obtained two months of telephone records. When pressed in a House Judiciary Committee hearing in May, 2013, as to exactly how he recused himself, he said he didn’t know how, when or to whom.
There was also his plan to try the mastermind of 9/11, Khalid Sheik Mohammed within the shadow of Ground Zero with the full protections of America’s criminal justice system, and his refusal to enforce the voting rights of white people in Pennsylvania, once again proving that for Mr. Holder, like for Mr. Obama, the Constitution and the rule of law are mere suggestions most of the time, but can be tools to be implemented when they are useful to advance their progressive vision and redress the sins of racist, imperialistic Amerika.
This piece has only scratched the surface about the many contemptible actions of this first AG to be held in contempt. Entire books have been written about them, and no doubt more will come. We can only hope and pray that future administrations can undo some of the damage that he has done during his tenure.
