It’s Time To Fire Eric Holder

Did the Attorney General of the United States commit perjury when he appeared before the House Judiciary Committee two weeks ago? It sure looks like it.

Eric Holder was testifying about the growing scandal over the Justice Department’s seizure of telephone records of some Associated Press reporters and editors. Representative Hank Johnson (D-Ga.), one of the committee members, asked him if the Justice Department thought it could use the Espionage Act of 1917 to prosecute reporters.

Holder offered what appeared to be a straightforward reply. He said, “In regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material — this is not something I’ve ever been involved in, heard of, or would think would be wise policy.”

Ah, but we later learned that is precisely what Holder’s agency had done against James Rosen, a reporter for FOX News. The Justice Department warrant authorizing the seizure of Rosen’s emails declared that there was “probable cause” to believe the reporter violated the Espionage Act “at the very least, either as an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator.”

Based on this extraordinary accusation, a Federal judge agreed to the Justice Department’s request for a secret search warrant for Rosen’s private Gmail account. And guess what? The person who signed the Justice Department affidavit making those allegations was none other than the head man himself, Holder.

And while some of Holder’s defenders claim that he had just scribbled his signature on a whole bunch of papers his staff put in front of him, apparently this isn’t true either. Several reports say that he “carefully vetted” the Rosen paperwork.

It appears that the top boss at Justice knew exactly what he was doing when he ordered the surreptitious search of a reporter’s emails. So much for Holder’s claim that this is “not something I’ve ever been involved in.” As Desi Arnaz used to say to Lucille Ball, the Attorney General has “got some ’splainin’ to do.”

Of course, this was also the case three years ago, when Congress tried to find out what went wrong in Operation Fast and Furious. You’ll recall that this was a botched effort by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to trace how weapons went from the United States to Mexican drug cartels. Some 2,000 firearms went missing from the program. One of those weapons subsequently was used in Arizona to kill U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian A. Terry.

Congressional investigators looking into the fiasco asked Holder to give them certain documents relating to the Fast and Furious program, since ATF is a part of the Justice Department. When he refused, they served him with a subpoena demanding them. President Barack Obama then asserted executive privilege, and the Administration refused to surrender them.

As a result, the House of Representatives voted to hold the Attorney General in contempt of Congress. To no one’s surprise, the Justice Department refused to prosecute the case.

The Administration was able to protect its guy back then. But even many Democrats are starting to question Holder’s veracity now. Representative John Conyers, the ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, says he is “deeply troubled” by some of the Justice Department’s actions. But he’s willing to give Holder the benefit of the doubt… at least for now.

“Certainly, it is fair to ask additional questions about the Rosen investigation, and any role the attorney general may have played in it,” Conyers said in a statement. Then he added, “[B]ut I do not believe it credible to level charges that he may have intentionally misled the committee on this matter before we know the facts of the case in question.”

So what will the facts ultimately reveal? Did the Attorney General perjure himself this time around? Representative Peter King (R-N.Y.) is one of many people who seem to think so. He said, “There’ve been other people over the years indicted for perjury or tried for perjury on a lot less evidence than that.”

The House Judiciary Committee has sent Holder a letter, asking him to explain the apparent discrepancy between his actions against Rosen and what he told the committee when he testified under oath on May 15. Representative Robert W. Goodlatte (R-Va.), the committee chairman, said, “We will withhold judgment on what the attorney general’s actions constitute until we give an opportunity for him to explain himself.”

Even Obama said a couple of days ago that he is “troubled” about these apparent assaults on the freedom of the press by the Justice Department. But, hey, not to worry: He is going to ask Holder to investigate matters and report back to him.

In other words, the President will ask the fox to look into what’s been happening in the chicken coop. That should make everyone feel better, shouldn’t it?

One liberal law professor has had enough. In a powerful column in USA Today, Jonathan Turley, the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, said that a hallmark of Holder’s service as attorney general has been his unquestioned loyalty to Obama:

“When the president promised CIA employees early in his first term that they would not be investigated for torture, it was the attorney general who shielded officials from prosecution.

“When the Obama Administration decided it would expand secret and warrantless surveillance, it was Holder who justified it.

“When the president wanted the authority to kill any American he deemed a threat without charge or trial, it was Holder who went public to announce the ‘kill list’ policy.”

But now, Turley says, the Justice Department has gone too far. “The attorney general has done little in his tenure to protect civil liberties or the free press,” the law professor wrote. “Rather, Holder has supervised a comprehensive erosion of privacy rights, press freedom and due process.”

Turley says the Justice Department’s sweeping surveillance of journalists represents “the greatest attack on the free press in decades.” And he has had enough. “I am neither a Republican nor conservative,” he declared, “and I believe Holder should be fired.”

Right now, the Attorney General is scrambling to protect himself. While he claims that the Justice Department hasn’t violated any laws or guidelines, he admits that the rules “need to be updated.” And he called the controversy “an opportunity for the department to consider how we strike the right balance between the interests of law enforcement and freedom of the press.”

Nice try, Holder, but it won’t work. Better dust off your resume and start exploring opportunities in the private sector, as the soon-to-be-departed like to say. Looks like we can color you gone. And it’s about time.

Until next time, keep some powder dry.

      The Oblama Regime is in trouble the American people are waking up, a really good thing. But while we are distracted with Holder and the other issues, Obama is busy on taking our guns:

      On June 3, President Barack Obama will sign the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The ATT passed in the U.N. General Assembly by a vote of 153-4 on April 2. This treaty is ostensibly aimed at putting an end to gun trafficking across international boundaries, and both Breitbart News and the NRA have argued that it will eventually require an international gun registry in order to be enforceable. The ATT also provides the executive branch of our government with broad powers for controlling which guns do and don’t come into the country, and includes ambiguous language that a gun-control-friendly administration can use to its advantage. Even though Obama will sign this treaty, it is not enforceable in the U.S. until the Senate ratifies it by a two-thirds majority.

        Any treaty, whether ratified or not, that conflicts with the U.S. Constitution (as this one surely does), is invalid and unenforceable. It will be interesting to see how Obama and his crony communists – er, I mean the Democrats – will try to spin this one.

      If you watch the news on any channel, Holder is portrayed as a naughty kiddo that has done nothing malicious and since he is so nice and lovable has to be forgiven. Anyone who thinks that Holder should call it quits on the job he cannot do is being portrayed as the villain. Holder is supposedly the victim.

        Ron r:Using disinformation tactic:

        4. Use a straw man. Find or create a seeming element of your opponent’s argument which you can easily knock down to make yourself look good and the opponent to look bad. Either make up an issue you may safely imply exists based on your interpretation of the opponent/opponent arguments/situation, or select the weakest aspect of the weakest charges. Amplify their significance and destroy them in a way which appears to debunk all the charges, real and fabricated alike, while actually avoiding discussion of the real issues.

  • Dirty Daug

    The big answer is has anyone got the balls to charge Holder with PERJURY. Over the time in our history of America people have been charged for perjury for a lot less that what Holder has done. But back then we had Presidents with some scruples and now we have a President that’s worst than Holder for lying. Then also will the Senate go along with a charge of perjury, I think not as many of them also are liars. So what we now have running this country is a MAFIA.

    • Vigilant

      I doubt the Mafia would want to claim credit for screwing things up so badly. They are a much more efficient operation.

      So what has the president lied about?

      • Vigilant

        Virtually everything.

        • Nadzieja Batki

          If the Dems/Progs/Leftists redefine what a lie is, then what is ‘lying”. Now even the dictionary definition is worthless. As far as they are concerned they can do no wrong because they have redefined morality. That is why you can get a stupid question “So what has the president lied about?” from Ron r.

      Dirty Daug,
      I agree Why havn’t they charged him?Congress says they need to investigate this .Hello congress let’s go to video. He clearly said I knew nothing about it, had nothing to do with it,had never even heard of it,and didn’t think that was something they should be doing. Hey Eric you signed the search warrant.End of investigation period. Let me escort you to your cell.

      • Vigilant

        Neither the Congress nor the DOJ have competence to investigate. A special prosecutor (independent counsel) is needed, a la Watergate.

        • Diana

          Vigilant,
          I agree with that too.But do we need an investigation? Everything I wrote in my earlier comment is true I watched it that’s exactly what was said.That’s why I don’t get the investigation part.The information they need is on video and in transcript.How long can that really take once they saw his name signed on the warrant? Memory would be the first thing ,then let’s look at that video. And there you have it .One day tops. then he should have been fired,not resign with the benefits. This is crap!

      • Farleyagain

        He signed the AFFIDAVIT. It’s a legal document on which lying is perjury. So he either perjured himself by signing the document or perjured himself to Congress. He CAN’T win this one.

      Ronnie Raygun was not my messiah. When you have soft headed and/or lame ideas or comments on these pages, you will be blasted or ignored. It does not matter who you are or what you have done, when you support lame positions you will be bashed. We now have a Tammy Duckworth lost two legs serving in Iraq, and should be commended for her service, but that does not make her leftist ideology any less lame or dangerous. Similarly with you seeming left leanings. Liberalism in its present form is dangerous to this country, and a lot of the problems it has caused needs to be undone.

    • Frank Kahn

      Need to use spell checker for starters, it is bled not blead.

      Does not matter who thinks we should lose our right to bear arms, it is constitutionally illegal to enforce.

      If we use the proper definition of conversation, and apply the idea of argument, then you are correct, there is no conversation, intelligent or otherwise, on this site when someone like you chimes in.

      If Reagan said that he saw no reason for us to carry guns on the street, it is not the same as saying the government has the right to stop it. He, like you, had the right to voice his OPINION, forcing others to abide by his OPINION is not his RIGHT, nor did he have the AUTHORITY to do it.

      I served this country for 8 years, in the military. I scraped my knuckles while doing my job, so I guess I bled for it too. I served in support of the Vietnam police action. I helped hold the line during the cold war. I earned the respect of people like you. Nothing I did in service to this country gave me the RIGHT to do anything. I only served to protect the RIGHTS that all people have.

      Labeling investigations of wrong doing “conspiracy chasing” is a liberal attempt to discredit us. Voicing an opinion, based on evidence, that more than one person joined in an effort to hide or otherwise deceive the citizens is a normal way for intelligent people to discuss what is important. To say that the evidence seems to indicate that there was a conspiracy happening, is by definition a conspiracy theory. However, the fact that it is a theory does not make it wrong or stupid. Adding the word conspiracy is a descriptive term to indicate what type of action is being considered.

      Your obvious attempt to assert that, anyone here, who is not a liberal toady, is incapable of intelligent thought is ludicrous (that means unintelligent). To pre-suppose that none of these people voted is just plain stupid. To assert that their voting would have resulted in a worse situation than the crisis we are now facing is unsupportable by any reasonable use of facts.

      To call us subversives and un-american, because we believe in keeping our rights, and holding the government to acceptable responsibility for their actions, is totally understandable. As a liberal, you are incapable of understanding what is real in this world. You feel that anything a liberal does is good and justifiable. You abhor the idea that someone might question the right of a liberal to do whatever he / she wants. You can’t see that the president claiming he knows nothing about what is going on, in the institutions he is responsible for, is a problem. You think that losing our RIGHTS is okay, as long as it makes you feel better or safer. You claim that Obama never lies, he is just taken out of context. It is never Obama’s fault that he did not fulfill his campaign promises, either it is Bush’s fault or the republicans wont let him do it. There are no attempts at gun confiscation, presently being pushed by the government. Making it a felony to own certain types of guns or magazines that hold too many bullets is not a form of confiscation, it only forces you to voluntarily relinquish your guns / magazines. This is a short list of the twisted ideas of liberal reality. Of course, as a liberal, you will disagree with the conclusion that these are twisted.

      So we come to what is un-American. This country was founded on Christian principles and morals, and that is not to say it was based on religion. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, is a cornerstone of our nations creation. The constitution is laden with words that affirm our God (creator) given rights. Justice is heavily themed in it also. The idea that no law shall be enacted but that it is applicable to everyone in our country is stated. Everyone is afforded equal protection under the law. Freedom of expression, including religious expression is stated. So, what is un-American? Lets list them.

      1. LIfe – every citizen has the right to life (abortion kills citizens)

      2. Liberty – this is another form of freedom which we all have. the freedom to act and live in any way as long as we don’t infringe on the rights of others. (this is violated on all levels by liberal policies)

      3. Pursuit of happiness – doing what makes you happy, as long as it does no harm to others. (this does not mean you have the right to freedom from fear)

      4. Rights – these are given to you automatically by the virtue of you being a human. They are not given or controlled by the government. (gun legislation aimed at limiting or eliminating the right to bear arms)

      5. Equal protection / responsibility under the law – this means that any law, passed by congress, which is constitutional, must be followed by every citizen regardless of position in life. (the president has the lawful authority to kill people because he deems them a threat to the nation) does this lawful authority give me the same ability to kill without fear of prosecution?

      6. Freedom of expression – We have a right to say whatever we feel as long as it is not a direct threat (assault) to someone. Do you want me to enumerate all the instances of how this is trampled on by liberals? Since, liberal policies have started to grab hold of our nation, political correctness limits our ability to use certain types of statements. If it offends someone (not a threat) then we are not allowed to use that word or phrase.

      So, what I see here is a compelling case, showing that liberals are un-American, if we go by the guiding principles of our founding and the constitution of the nation.

      What guiding principles of our nation, that you see, are violated by conservatives?

      Gee Ron, I guess the Founding Fathers were also subversives in your mind. I really hate to see you get your blood pressure all worked up on this page with all these subversives; perhaps you would get more satisfaction on a liberal site where you can all be the smartest guys in the room. There’s really no need to stay here and punish yourself. O.K. Ron, good luck posting with your own kind. We’ll see you now. Bye!

    Obomanation wants EH to go back to school and learn the law WTF; that was his assignment from his master. So EH organizes a meeting with Press (off the record) so they can tell him what the law is so he can, maybe, write it down. Obamanation is pathetic, his incompetence is obvious now that his house of cards is collapsing around him faster than a flash flood in springtime. This POTUS, and all his minions should be removed from office and prosecuted for not holding up the laws of this land, the Bill of Rights, our United States Constitution in which they pledged to uphold. Time for games is over, enough of this socialist/communist experiment, the US citizens are waking up to the fact that our government is being run like China, none of us are safe with this Administration in charge of this country.

    YOU ~~ as in every American was sold as Chattel to the BOL in 1938 by FDR. When you all wake up to this fact,~ and only when you wake up to this fact will this ever change.

    Peace and Love, Shalom, Wake up sheepee your all about to be sheared for the last time ~~~/~~~ very soon. Watch Japan’s markets for your end game time table. 8.5% drop in seven days….

    We all know dam well that Obama had something to do with the whole thing, along with the IRS fiasco!!!!! I’m not holding my breath, the only way holder will get fired is if it looks like Obama will go down with him!!!!!!! I sincerely hope they get enough proof to get rid of both of them and to file charges that stick!!!!!!!

    He said the rules need to be updated. All them rules are the rights of the people. It would be another step towards tyrany. In 2014 I hope a whole new breed of voters come out. They would be the ones who never cared and never voted, but are starting to wake up to what they are losing.

    Right now the polls show Hillary and Biden leading as top contenders in 2016.Do we need more of the same as we have today? Please people, vote anything but democrat. They used to be known as party of the people, but they have become the party of the control of the people. Anything but Democrat. Please people, get out and vote. Its our only chance.

    • Motov

      Don’t vote neo-cons either! vote for a third party, like Libertarians, or TEA party,.. The republicans (more like the RINO’s) have long sold out their souls to lobbyists, or are libtards in disguise.

      We need people like Ron Paul, you know, people who talk incessantly about the Constitution, and how we need to enforce it upon our government

    Getting rid of Holder is only step one . Cut the head off the venomous snake and the snake will die . Obama = snake .

  • ONTIME

    Holder has been a thorn and a detriment to law enfocement since his early days, his appointment to the AG was nothing more than a blockstop obstructionist for the Faker his buddy and keeping the Soros doctrine alive and well. All these vermin mentioned are suitable for long hard prison terms, to make this happen is going to take a a demonstration of WTP to enforce the rule of law and the guidelines of the US Constitution…

    Did anyone else besides me make the connection to holder and the suggestion and passing of gun laws in this country? Fast and Furious… we give some guns into enemy hands and they end up killing an American. Legal for the feds, right? So then why is it illegal for someone go across a state line, buy some guns, then come back and sell them to anyone that wants them for the right price…?
    Same gig… much smaller scale… no harm done, right?
    I think it is time to stop the double-standards between the feds and those who PAY them….

    Mr President, ask for his resignation. He can always say he would like to spend more time with his family and enter private practice.

  • JUKEBOX

    It would appear to me that the judicial committee needs to take most of this evidence before a grand jury, and ask for several hundred indictments for Holder and his co-conspirators.

  • Peter Barney

    The American people want the resignation of Eric Holder. NOW!

  • Farleyagain

    Obama should be fired. Should have been fired back in 2010 when he jammed through the Affordable Healthcare Act (AHA!) against the clear wishes of the American people. We should be actively pursuing recalls of many Senators right now for failing to pass a budget for four years. Dereliction of duty. But in that category, Obama wins first prize for his non action in the Benghazi attack. The families of the men who gave their lives defending our outpost and the ambassador should file wrongful death suits immediately against Barack Hussein Obama. And Brian Terry’s family should file one on Eric Holder for Terry’s death as a result of the horribly botched Fast and Furious.

        Thank you, Jeff. My health is fine. I’ve just been busy with probate issues, spring planting, and landscaping. Somehow my normal ID got tied up, so I switched to this new one. It will be a lot harder for one of the Progressives to claim he innocently used this new ID. I’ll be tied up wrestling with my dishonest siblings for the next several months, but when winter comes, I should have plenty of free time leftover to start battling evil advantage-seeking Progressives again.

        • JeffH

          Well it’s good to know you’re still alive and kicking but sorry to hear your family woes are still a problem. The progressive trolls come & go but eddie hasn’t be heard from in months…booted I hope…and you’re attackers have been pretty quiet and missing in action for the most part.
          I guess they got tired of accusing me of being you…and not getting the kind of responses they wanted. There are still a few of the really ignorant ones popping in and out but they’ve been handled by the long time regulars quite well…they still seem to believe that most posters aren’t going to take the time check their lies and mis-information.
          Go figure.

    Unfortunately, in this day and age, Holder will probably be promoted, and given a pay raise, rather than thrown into jail for his crimes. Either way, it is a kick in the teeth. For even if Hell did freeze over, and Holder was thrown in the clinker, the few of us left who are working, and pay taxes, would be on the hook supporting him with free food, medical care, and a roof over his head.

  • Motov

    I think the Taxpayers and the military need to band together and do a multi-million man march right up to the Whitehouse, and demand a resignation by the Muslim in charge ASAP.

    Obviously, Congress won’t do their job and impeach the charlatan in charge.
    How much more evidence do we need to remove the worst ever president?
    With all the crimes this guy has done, He should have never been elected back in 2008. Yet we allowed to be ripped off, silenced, targeted by the IRS, treated like criminals, and have our rights trampled by an egotistical, narcissistic, liar,
    and TYRANT, who shows he cares more for foreigners than the people who pay his salary. HOW MUCH more does this guy need to do before WE say THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE?

    The Supreme Court has also failed, The press has lied to us daily.

    If we ever want to see a constitutional government again, We better do this now before Our “Godzilla Government” totally destroys what is left of this nation.

    The Founders on the dangers of Judicial Activism

    Did you know that the Founders foresaw the predicament under which we now find ourselves being oppressed by the United States Supreme Court and Federal Judges? They not only provided us with the ability to impeach judges; it was their opinion that either the Executive branch or Congress could overrule a Judicial opinion on the Constitutionality of any issue. President Thomas Jefferson even overruled a law that passed in Congress and was signed by the previous President, on the grounds that it was Unconstitutional.

    Hence, The good news is: the people of this country can throw off the chains of Judicial Tyranny and oppression, forced upon the majority of Americans since 1947…

    MAINTAINING CONSTITUTIONAL INTEGRITY: A Government of the People

    … Very simply, the Constitutional framers supported judicial review; the
    Federalist Papers explained it; the ratification debates described it; and legal
    scholars confirmed it.

    Yet, within judicial review, there were specific things which the Judiciary
    could not do. For example, laws were to be judged only against the specific,
    self-evident wording of the Constitution and nothing further. In other
    words, judicial review had a limited field of inquiry. Hamilton confirmed this
    in Federalist #81:

    [T]here is not a syllable in the plan [the Constitution] which directly
    empowers the national courts to construe the laws according to the spirit of the Constitution.

  • dordoug

    Holder is the most corrupt AG in my lifetime (72 yesterday!). He morally should resign.

    But I hope that he doesn’t, and that we don’t try to impeach the imposter in the White house.

    Let the House & Senate do their investigations of all 7 scandals now in view (and others that will likely come to light) for the next 3 years. It will be Chinese water torture for both the president & Hillary for their parts in Benghazi, and for the president & Holder for their parts in the other scandals. Drip, drip, drip every day for 3 years! In 3 years, all of them will be so disgraced, and the public so discourage at the violation of trust that these 3 have betrayed, we may even get a few constitutionaliists elected in 2014 & 2016 to undo the damage that this administration has wreaked upon us.
