Holder vs. Congress

June 28, 2012

As you probably know by now, the House of Representatives will vote this afternoon to determine whether U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is in contempt of Congress for obstruction of the Oversight Committee’s Fast and Furious investigation.

While those on the left are trying to spin this vote as election year politicking, the fact remains that it was Mr. Holder’s choice to refuse to produce requested documents for more than a year, stonewalling on every demand. Of course he ended up hiding under the umbrella of that ultimate refuge, President Obama’s grant of Executive Privilege.

For me, this is the very last straw. Some naifs are comparing Fast and Furious to Watergate, but there is no comparison. As Iowahawk so eloquentlyput it, F&F is “Watergate with toe tags.” If Holder had anything to do with it, he should be immediately fired and promptly prosecuted for the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Then he should be deported to Mexico to be tried for the murder of the 300 or so Mexican citizens who died because of this program.

But it’s not just that.

This man has been a problem from the moment he took office. This is a man who claims to believe that requesting a photo identification in order to vote is racist, and yet requires photo id to be presented when people come to see him.

This is a man who accused America of being cowards because we were afraid to talk about race.

This is a man who refers to African Americans as “my people“, disregarding the fact that he is the A.G. for the entire country, not just one segment of its population.

This is a man who refused to win a prosecution against members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation, choosing instead to simply drop the case and walk away.

In short, it really doesn’t matter how Congress votes today.

For most of America, Eric Holder is already beneath contempt.

You really couldn’t ask for more than Bill Whittle’s latest video on a steamy hot summer Thursday:

From the TexasAgs forum via Doug Ross at Director Blue comes this appalling chart, which says it all:

You really want to be sure everyone sees this.

Don’t believe me?

Ask Aaron Walker. Ask Patterico. Ask Stacy McCain. Ask Ali Akbar.

Don’t be silenced. Stand strong. Donate if you can.


On, Wisconsin!

June 5, 2012

As you likely already know, Wisconsinites today are voting on whether to oust Scott Walker, their duly elected governor, and replace him with someone else.

And you’ll probably be relieved to know that the WI Department of Justice has stepped in and will be monitoring the election, especially in the larger cities of Milwaukee and Madison where fraud may be rampant. And just to make you feel extra-specially better, the U.S. Department of Justice — yes, that would be Eric Holder’s gang — will also be monitoring.

And of course, the Democrats will have an “army of lawyers” in case the election doesn’t come out the way they want it to. After all, that’s why they’re trying to recall the Governor, isn’t it? What’s the good of spending millions of state dollars on a recall, if you don’t get your way in the end?

And that’s what this is really all about. This recall is nothing but the petty politics of spoiled brats, unwilling to behave like adults (anyone remember last year’s “fleebaggers“?) If they don’t like what’s happening, they run away. If they can’t run, they whine until they have enough signatures for a recall. And now that the recall is happening (and it looks likely that Gov. Walker will retain his job by a comfortable margin), they’re gearing up for an inevitable recount:

“We’re very much anticipating that there’s a chance that we could be in a recount scenario,” said Mike Tate, chairman of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. He said the party will have more than 440 lawyers in the field on Tuesday “doing election protection activities but also tasked with recount preparation, making sure that we know where absentee ballots are at, making sure that we have a strong handle on what’s happening out there.”

If at all possible, they’ll recount… and recount… and recount… until enough votes are found to boost their guy over the top. Remember Al Frankin in Minnesota just next door? How many “uncounted” absentee ballots mysteriously turned up in a car trunk? Just enough to steal that election.

And what the heck are “election protection activities”? Will Wisconsinites be seeing Black Panthers with billy clubs at the door to each voting place? (See above, Eric Holder’s gang…)

Recall elections should be saved for corruption or other egregiously bad or illegal behavior. Gov. Scott Walker was simply doing his job–the job he was elected to do. Wisconsin, it’s up to you. Do you want to be ruled by the whims of spoiled brats and petty tyrants? Or would you rather live by the rule of law?

So get out and vote! Because spoiled brats do not make good leaders.
