Holder needs to go. Obama needs to go. If impeachment is not an option, then vote for Romney even if you don’t like him because he’s a squish. Anyone but Obama! Fire Obama and you fire all his clowns too.

You fucking dillweeds in the MSM can’t hide this shit anymore!

Vote to Sanction Holder Escalates Gun-Probe Fight

By EVAN PEREZ

WASHINGTON—A standoff between Republicans and the Obama administration over a botched gun-trafficking operation escalated Wednesday, with a House committee voting to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

The party-line vote came hours after President Barack Obama, for the first time, asserted executive privilege, aiming to block Republicans from gaining access to Justice Department documents about the operation.House Republican leaders said they would bring the contempt measure to the House floor next week. If the full House votes to support it, then a contempt citation could be referred to the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, an appointee of Mr. Obama’s who is in Mr. Holder’s chain of command.If it ends up in the courts, the dispute would raise constitutional questions about the power of the executive branch vs. Congress. Previous such battles have ended before reaching that stage with some kind of truce between the sides.

Obama is trying to cover for Holder, but all that’s doing is exposing the fact that Obama is involved. Now it’s just a matter of when he knew and for how long he’s been covering it up. Remember when they start yammering about it was all  Bush’s fault, ask yourself this: “Self, why don’t they release the documents and prove that is was all Bush’s fault?” They can’t do that, because the proof is that they did it and are responsible for Brian Terry’s death and the death of hundreds of Mexicans, as a direct result of their scheme.

EDITORIAL: Holder’s contempt and Obama’s privilege

Fast and Furious fight heads to the House floor

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES

President Obama’s attempt to invoke executive privilege to forestall contempt-of-Congress proceedings against Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. failed. Instead, the claim elevates the dispute between the administration and Capitol Hill to a new and troubling level. The operative question now is, what did the president know and when did he know it?

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted Wednesday to recommend a contempt charge against Mr. Holder. Since October, the Justice Department has refused to respond to a subpoena seeking 1,300 pages of documents related to the botched Fast and Furious Mexican gunrunning operation. Negotiations between the Justice Department and committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, broke down, and the contempt recommendation followed.

Mr. Obama’s last-minute move to extend the umbrella of executive privilege raises the question of whether the president or his staff had extensive prior knowledge of the operation, because this privilege can only be invoked when the chief executive’s office is involved. “Until now, everyone believed that the decisions regarding Fast and Furious were confined to the Department of Justice,” said Michael Steel, spokesman for House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican. “The White House decision to invoke executive privilege implies that White House officials were either involved in the Fast and Furious operation or the cover-up that followed.”

This is good. Someone with some balls.

National Border Patrol Council, Which Represents All 17,000 Non-Supervisory Border Agents, Calls For Holder’s Resignation

Holder lied, Brian Terry died.

 

Council President George E. McCubbin III, a 25-year Border Patrol veteran, described Mr. Holder’s actions in the case as “a slap in the face to all Border Patrol agents who serve this country,” adding that the attorney general showed “an utter failure of leadership at the highest levels of government.”…

Mr. McCubbin said Border Patrol agents are indoctrinated from day one of their training that “integrity is their most important trait and that without it, they have little use to the agency.” He said agents who lie or show a lack of candor are disciplined quickly.

“The standard that applies to these agents should at a minimum be applied to those who lead them,” Mr. McCubbin said. “If Eric Holder were a Border Patrol agent and not the attorney general, he would have long ago been found unsuitable for government employment and terminated.”

They continue to try and cover each others asses, but the lights are on now bitches.

Watching these cockroaches run for cover is amusing, but there needs to be some serious consequences for their actions.

How much longer can Obama and Holder protect each other? By: Jeffrey Klein

Barack Obama was compelled by media and bi-partisan Congressional force majeure to take the podium for a televised White House press conference this morning, to address, among other things, the apparent stonewalling being triangulated by the White House, CIA and DOJ, which is derailing investigations being conducted by both House and Senate Intelligence committees, regarding the parade of classified information leaks over the past two months.

Yesterday, in a now rare display of political unity and moral integrity, Rep. Mike Rogers R-MI and Rep. C.A. “Dutch” Ruppersberger D-MD , the Chairman and ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, who were joined by Sen. Dianne Feinstein D-CA and Sen. Saxby Chambliss R-GA , the Chairwoman and Vice-Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, held a joint press conference demanding White House action on the matter, according to an Associated Press article this morning.

“There has been just a cascade of leaks coming out of the intelligence community in the last several weeks and months,” the vice chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss told reporters. “It’s our clear intention to put a stop to this.”

Over the past several months a series of explicitly detailed media reports have emerged, regarding everything from White House policy on the highly classified targeting of Al Q20da militants by drones and raids, White House directed deployment known as “Stuxnet,” a cyber-weapon that injects malicious computer code, which knocked out Iranian nuclear processing centrifuges, and President Obama’s participation in producing terrorist “kill lists.”

Looks like the DOJ is fighting Florida’s attempt to clean up their voter registration. You know, non-citizens, dead people, that kind of shit. Can’t be purging Democrats off the voter rolls now can we? Obama needs all the illegal votes he can get!

Feds to Florida: halt non-citizen voter purge

The Justice Department told Florida election officials that they must stop their non-citizen voters purge. Florida argues it is not violating any law.

By Marc Caputo

The Justice Department ordered Florida’s elections division to halt a systematic effort to find and purge the state’s voter rolls of noncitizen voters.

Florida’s effort appears to violate both the 1965 Voting Rights Act, which protects minorities, and the 1993 National Voter Registration Act – which governs voter purges – T. Christian Herren Jr., the Justice Department’s lead civil rights lawyer, wrote in a detailed two-page letter sent late Thursday night.

State officials said they were reviewing the letter. But they indicated they might fight DOJ over its interpretation of federal law and expressed frustration that President Barack Obama’s administration has stonewalled the state’s noncitizen voter hunt for nine months.

“We are firmly committed to doing the right thing and preventing ineligible voters from being able to cast a ballot,” said Chris Cate, spokesman for Secretary of State Ken Detzner, who was ordered by Gov. Rick Scott to conduct the search for potentially ineligible voters.

When? When will the Obama Administration and his cronies be held accountable? This is a travesty that continues to be swept under the rug by a useless Congress. Where’s the outcry from the media? If this were a Republican Administration, you’d never hear the end of it.

Impeach now.

Senator Feinstein is a typical Democrat. See corruption, look the other way, unless it can damage the Republican Party. Doesn’t fit the narrative otherwise.

Holder needs to be impeached. Obama needs to be impeached. Looks like Feinstein should be as well.

Fire them all.

Veteran agent: Feinstein did not act on ATF abuse, corruption evidence

Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., was informed of management corruption and abuse issues at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) before allegations of “gunwalking” surfaced, but opted to do nothing about it. That allegation comes from veteran Special Agent Vince Cefalu, who recently informed Gun Rights Examiner of his efforts to persuade the powerful Democrat to investigate documented instances of gross mismanagement and perjury.

Cefalu is the veteran street agent who was served termination papers last June for his efforts to bring management wrongdoing to light, a move perceived by other whistleblowers and observers as not just retaliation, but direct defiance of Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and concerns he articulated as Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

“When they showed they were going to tee it up on me and others out of sheer abuse and covering their national screw-ups, I wrote to Feinstein,” Cefalu told this correspondent.
