More Calls For Holder To Step Down

More Calls For Holder To Step Down

Representative Bobby Schilling (R-Ill.) said he “has seen enough.” Schilling is the 61st in the House of Representatives to say Attorney General Eric Holder should resign over Operation Fast and Furious.

“Rep. Schilling has seen enough to feel that Attorney General Holder should have known and done more with regards to Operation Fast and Furious, and is supportive of calls for his resignation,” Schilling’s spokeswoman told The Daily Caller.

Now, between independent calls and a “no confidence” resolution drafted by Representative Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), more than 90 lawmakers have called for Holder to step down from his position.

A letter sent to Holder from the House Oversight Committee last week, asks the AG to testify to “examine flaws in the management structure of the Justice Department as demonstrated in the genesis and structure of ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious” in January.

Holder said last week that the criticisms against him and the Justice Department are a Republican attempt to attack the Administration of Barack Obama and even suggested that racial motives were at play.

    At least I agree with Schilling on this. However, Schilling is another Illinois politician–seeking their own 15 minutes of fame and what is “best” for him/herself.

    Let’s face facts, people. Having someone like Holder around promotes reverse racism and makes Washington the headquarters of America’s Nazis. Holder’s methods border on stark, raving insanity. However, Holder is also in a position where only a retard couldn’t see what Holder is doing to America. Utopians, HOW can you NOT see what YOU are protecting?
    When you can’t tell the difference between a closet Nazi and a saint, it’s YOUR fault if you don’t solve and get rid of the problem.
    Holder, OUT. Obummer, OUT. FREEDOM, IN!

      holder knows what he’s doing lol just ask the black panther and acorn

    • Lastmanstanding

      s c…you are absolutely correct…if everyone was presented a well written article of what is going on, they would see that we live in a facist state…the Constitution was actually “set aside” during fascist fdr’s term was and still is actually “not” in effect…no pres since has been willing to recind this abomination…that is why things have been sliding since…

      I do not know how to add tags but you all can go to
      and read the articles with pertainant info written by the “Country Codger” this man was in the US military and was “in country” when 4 countries crashed during the vietnam era. Personally…I would read all of his articles…

      Do I need to actually say that the lies and deception continue to stack up? Printing money (worldwide) inflation(not happening) riots in the streets, more spending (increasing debt) SB 1867, fast and furious, class warefare…where should I stop?

      Merry Christmas to all…by next Christmas, the writing will be on the wall.

      Vote Ron Paul 2012…

    • Vic Bailey

      Holder is no more guilty than Bama, they both need to be in Leavenworth for eternity! The ONLY way we have a chance to get America Back is to put the blindfold back on the Lady of Justice, and prosecute them to the FULLEST! And I mean ALL CROOKED Politicians and NOT let them off with a smack on the hands like Newt Gingrich, Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, ALL the Socialist in Congress and the Senate! Play Time IS OVER! If we want to stay free then we have to get serious about it, we have kids in prison for having ONE Joint on them, but we have crooked politicians stealing us blind and causing grief to our citizens and conspiring against our country with foreign enimes, and NOTHING happens to them, WRONG, you can’t ask for an honest man or woman, you must demand it! And IF they step out of line they MUST be delt with IMMEDIATELY! Semper Fi.

  • Jim Robinett

    there should not be the chance of it stepping down, it should be fired and sent to prison.

  • Lee

    He should go to jail.

  • Paul

    Holder and Odama should both go to jail. The sooner the better for our country !!!

  • Warrior

    Come on eric, you’re the second brightest person in this country, you can do better than play the race card. Can’t you?

    • Ret

      Obviously not, pathetic, isn’t it. I’m waiting for obummer to play it too, if he isn’t re-elected.

      • JUKEBOX

        Obama already played the race card against Hillary back in 2008. He failed to mention that he was half as WHITE as Hillary.

  • http://Boblivingston Gottaplenty

    WQhy can’t they just start impeachment proceedings? They have enough on him to make it a cake walk.

    • borderlinedevill

      congress either has no back bone or their afraid of the ignorant folks doing the riot thing

    • Lastmanstanding

      Because they are all on the same team…take a moment and look at all the facts over the last 100 yrs or even 10…if you look at them objectively, it is very clear what has been going on.

      Or, you can simply say, ‘oh that can’t happen in the USA’ and go back to sleep.

      If you have kids or grandkids…do it for them.

    • Flame

      As I’ve posted in other threads, as desirable as it is to impeach both Holder and Obummer, it would be waste of time and resources at this time. We hold the House, so Articles of Impeachment could be drafted and published, but the Senate sits as jury to bring in the verdict. The Senate is currently comprised of 49 Dems, 2 Independents who are former Dems, and 47 Republicans. It takes 66 votes to get the 2/3rds required to convict. We would have to get all 47 Reps (not likely) plus 19 more votes from the Dems and Indies.

      It just ain’t gonna happen, folks, until we change the makeup of the Senate. I think Rep. Issa and Sen. Grassley are both intelligent enough to see these numbers, and that’s probably why there has been no move to impeach either of these criminals.

      Without the votes to convict, it’s a waste of resources. Also, if they impeached either of them and failed to get the conviction, that person’s status would actually be stronger—just like Slick Willie.

      That’s why no impeachment.

  • Mike

    Send Holder to Mexico, let them deal with this idiot for he can’t hide behind the race card as he will get away with doing here. lol

  • slapjack

    I don’t give a damn if he is black white or red this incompetent idiot needs to go away, by any means necessary. A man died at the hands of this nitwit stupidity and is being swept under the rug by the head law enforcer in the nation; like it does not matter. Holder is playing a dangerous game with the Race card and should be held accountable. Give him his day in court then hang him high if need be. Sermper Fi

  • americanfreedom70

    I agree with slapjack. HURAH! Contrary to popular belief in Washington NO ONE is above the law. Not even the “top cop of the country”. It is high time the great people of the GREATEST country in the world stand together and let the “powers that be” know in one unquestionable voice “if you mess with us it will cost you”!

  • http://none Henry Stumpf

    I say let him stay !! The longer he is there the dumber obama looks !!

    • Joe H.

      Henry stumpf,
      And while he is there longer, how many more good American citizens will DIE???

  • hitthedeck

    It is really a dam shame that we have not seen one democrat demand that Holder step down. It goes to show you that the Democratic Party has chose the dark side. They know that holder is dirty but the party is more important than the will of the American people. Have they no shame. There were some of those democrats on the senate investigating committee that were still trying to justify gun control over the fact that Holder was lying. Vote these dirty Americans out of office before it’s to late!

  • hitthedeck

    J Edgar Hoover was director of the FBI for years and held awesome power because of his secret files on every President and congressman in Washington. Eric Holder is using the same method but he does not have enough dirt on the republicans. The republicans have gone public in demanding he step down while the President and Democrats on the Senate investigating committee are defending him. He has probably got enough dirt on Obama to have him impeached and enough on the democratic congressmen and women to have them thrown into a federal prison. It makes me believe that republicans are more honest than the democrats!

  • ICE

    If we don’t charge and try these people, like Holder and the rest of his ilk at the AG’S office, that have aided and abetted the unlawful behavior exhibited on many occasions. Than we deserve what we get. However if we try and convict these criminals than I advocate the return to PUBLIC HANGING.

  • ICE


  • http://? MMDJR

    Both of them should be in PRISON. Especially after the Black Panthers did their thing @ that voting place.

  • Buck

    Quit calling and start impeachment , if the senate is the problem impeach Harry Reid first then Holder and while the party is going move on to Obamass .

  • http://naver Samurai

    Not just impeaching Holder and Obama bin Laden, but charge then with violating the Constitution, gun running, and murder. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • http://yahoo don

    when its done and holder is gone try to prove obummer was the kingpin in the whole deal and impeach him.

  • god’s warrior

    This is it ! The beginning of the end for these evil elitist pigs. Mr. Holder may have a new charge on his hands for 2012… The Oklahoma City Bombing. Another False Flag Terror that killed close to 190 people (wounding countless others ) including children, and that’s right folks; his fingerprints are all over it. Go get your diaper changed Holder, crying racist won’t do you any good in Oklahoma ! I see God’s Glory shine through this story. I believe we all need to demand our State Representatives seek proceedings for Grand Jury hearings on all these crooked dictatorial thieves,and traitors who so called “serve the people”. It is time to let them know… We Know.. Their House of Cards is about to fall!!

  • hitthedeck

    The Mexican government should raise hell and demand firing Holder. The president will comply with a foreign government more so than the American people.

  • AJ

    My Democrat friends are saying “Down with Holder or Down with Obama in 2012!”
