Pelosi: Contempt vote really about stopping Holder from fighting voter suppression in our country
therightscoop ^ | June 21st, 2012 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 06/21/2012 8:37:33 AM PDT by sunmars

At Pelosi’s weekly press conference this morning, she made the point several times that there was a huge difference between George W. Bush asserting Executive Privilege over the firing of US Attorneys and Obama using it yesterday. When asked what the differences were she deferred to Elijah Cummings on the issue. But then she took a moment to tell the press what this contempt vote was really about, to stop Holder from fighting voter suppression in this country:

Contempt of Congress? Contempt of Congress? To frivolously use that really important vehicle to undermine the person who’s assigned to stop the voter suppression in our country? I’m telling you this is connected. It is no accident. It is a decision and it is as clear as can be – not only to monopolize his time, it’s to undermine his name, to undermine his name, undermine his name as he goes forward to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Seriously, i just want to lock her up in a mental home. To assert that a lawful inquiry into how many people died is really about supressing Dem votes is beneath even her. My blood is boiling.

obody who has attained the position of Speaker of the House, and has the nerve to tell the American people that “we have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it,” should EVER be taken seriously about anything.

She’s both but this is beyond despicable for even her.

Supressing votes, that is what she thinks the inquiry is about.

I’m sickened to my stomach.

Nancy, the executive branch of our government undertook the arming of international criminal syndicates at war with our neighboring friendly government, resulting in the deaths of two US federal agents and hundreds of innocent citizens of that neighbor.

Then they lied about it repeatedly under oath, as you continue to do.

In a way, it is about voter suppression, in that all those convicted of federal crimes in this scandal will lose the right to excercise their voting priviledges.

This is the one of the most contemptible statements I have ever heard. These Democrats apparently think they can make any outrageous lie and get away with it. This stupid woman wants to inflame blacks for her and her party’s political advantage.

She does sound even less sane than usual. If SCOTUS guts her proudest accomplishment, the Capitol security office may need to call in the guys with the tranquilizer guns.

If so, I hope someone captures the scene on video.

I believe she is crazy enough to really believe this.

Showing an ID is not voter suppression. EVERYONE has to show it. Is showing an ID for cigarettes smoker suppression? Is showing ID for alcohol drinker suppression? Is showing ID for a bank account, financial suppression? Is showing ID for gas and electric utilities to be turned on energy suppression? Are clubs that demand photo ID before entering, attendee suppression? Is showing ID to a law enforcement officer citizen suppression? Is showing ID to get onto a plane passenger suppression?

Is demanding photo ID at an Obama fundraising event, VOTER SUPPRESSION?

If they say all the above is voluntary, SO IS VOTING! In most elections the majority of eligible voters DON’T VOTE. Nobody is forced to vote.

Voter ID is good for all. It lets the voter know nobody else has voted in their place. It also adds integrity to the voting process because it means in principle all votes cast were cast by a voter that was verified to be who they said they were. Doesn’t solve the problem of fake IDs if the people still want ot cheat but it makes it more expensive and if discovered people could be jailed for doing it.

She had no answer to that, and turned it over to Cummings to make a fool out of himself.

"Contempt of Congress? Contempt of Congress? To frivolously use that really important vehicle to undermine the person who’s assigned to stop the voter suppression in our country?..............

Here she's actually brazenly accusing the Republicans of exactly what the Democrats promote which is voter intimidation such as happened in the 2008 election with the NBP that Mr. Name undermined, lawless AG Holder sidelined the already won case.

Typical Democrat/Leftist Pelosi in that she projects onto others that which is precisely their own doing. Standard Leftist Diversionary tactic.

My concern is with the people that keep returning her to congress and the party that keeps putting her in their leadership. It's is not a coincidence that Harry Reid is their senate leader and displays the same lie to your face, outrageous statements, and deny, hide or twist any inconvenient facts in order to prevail.

They are absolutely rabid.

Why she has not been excommunicated from the Catholic Church makes no sense either, as she defies the Vatican and the Bishops and says that she speaks for the majority of Catholics and that abortion is okay and obamacare mandated birth control is okay and the church is wrong!!!!

"Vote suppression" has been a Dim talking point ever since states like Florida began removing fraudulent and dead voters from the rolls. You can see numerous little Dim snot noses using it in readers' responses to political columns.

I marvel at these punk snot noses, that they are so proud of their dishonesty.

Pelosi was drunk or heavily medicated.

Watch her demeanor, watch her hand movements.

Watch how she had to lean on the podium for support.

Watch her repeat words over and over.

Pelosi was drunk or medicated.

Bet the rent.

It has just dawned on me why Pelousi has made such a bogus claim against the GOP. Holder and his Dept of Justice (or lack thereof), because of being tied up with this Obozo created scandal, have less time to pursue actions against states which are attempting to clean up voter fraud perpetrated primarily by liberals.

Here is a link to a press conference that proves that Holder and the Obama administration was fully involved with Fast and Furious. At the time they were calling it, Operation Gunrunner.

2009 News Conference on the Obama administration's Operation Gunrunner (C-Span)

One of the commenters mentioned that he would like to see the uncut video. I think that is a good idea, but this is proof positive that the Obama administration was fully engaged in Fast and Furious.

Pelosi: GOP attacking Holder to suppress voters

Months of struggling with their long-dormant brains to come up with something new to replace their decades-old screams of "RACISM!" and this mere variation of it is all they could come up with?

They finally sense the impact of alternate media sunshine on the world of their mainstream media.. but there is too little left of their brains -- all they have is screaming "RACISM!" in one form or another.
