Holder vs. Congress

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.

    It’s all a rigged game. The “Connected” never will be treated like you or I. Just look at Jon Corzine of MF Global. To them, Justice is spelled “Just Us”.

    There is more to this than perhaps appears on the surface. Holder and, my guess, Obama have made their policy to turn away from holding account other thugs whether it’s “Chicago Thug Politics” or the “New Black Panther” organization (who has now been essentially given a “pass” for their intimidating of whites at the voting polls).

    From that intimidation at poll “success”, the head of the Panthers has escalated to now hinting of a racial war if George Zimmerman is not found guilty for the shooting death of Tevvor Martin in the incident in Sanford, Florida.

    The Panthers have also announced for a $10,000 bounty on the head of Zimmerman… if he is killed.

    What did Holder and Obama comment in response to these threats?

    Obama pointed out that if he had a son, he might possibly looked like Trevvon. Uh, yes, and what does that have to do with the facts about the case, Mr. President?

    Holder? Not a peep. Not a comment that it’s wrong for people to call for murders and bounties on heads or calling for racial wars. I guess we’re supposed to assume that – like the “Fast & Furious” debacle – he just hadn’t heard of any of this…

    Folks, do you still think the election isn’t important this coming November? It’s not just about Obama Vs. Romney. It’s where this country is going under Obama and Holder… and the “Great Unite Obama” is clearly to be everything BUT that.

    Will Representative Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) drop another bombshell ? Will Representative Cummings (D-Md.) be as toolish and morally bankrupt as he usually is ? How loud will the Left shriek if a number of Democrats , as anticipated, vote to hold Holder in contempt?
