Serial abuses of justice by Americas top law enforcement official should be enough to make just about any tinhorn banana republic dictator blush. Yet regarding any embarrassment evidenced by the leader of the free world not so much. Despite the fact that our attorney general has been indicted for contempt of Congress on both felony and civil charges, has repeatedly lied under oath, and has routinely turned a blind eye to laws that he is duty-bound to enforce, Mr. Holder continues to serve at the behest of his presidential mentor. At least he has so far.
Apparently not so very much of that promised transparency after all:
On September 30, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman turned down Holders Justice Department request to dismiss a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee lawsuit seeking Operation Fast and Furious gun-running scandal documents hidden by the self-proclaimed most transparent administration in history.
Up until now, Obama and company have refused to do so after the president asserted executive privilege. Their position argued that the oversight committees demand for information had been settled by a February 4, 2011 letter to Congress in which Assistant Attorney General Ron Welch stated that the allegation that ATF sanctioned or otherwise knowingly allowed the sale of weapons is false. DOJ pleaded that since their letter contended that they had done nothing wrong, and that there was nothing more to see following its issuance, the matter should be settled. Congress should just accept their word get over it move on.
Call them a disagreeable lot, but the House oversight committee chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) wasnt sufficiently trusting to do that. After they sued to obtain the outstanding records, the administration filed for dismissal. They maintained that if the lawsuit were allowed to proceed, every new document request would...

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I have always wondered why Mexico doesn’t file charges against Holder and request extradition. It would create a hero in Mexico for whomever stands up to the US.
I want to know what Darryl Issa learned on his recent trip to Libya.
And what is Mexico’s number one source of revenue? Mega-BILLIONS $$$$$ Remittance by Hispanics living in America!
It would be ironic if Mexico, who has always been considered corrupt, would bring enough pressure to force Holder out when the corrupt Obama does nothing but praise him.

...The Republican Party must embrace more legal immigration.
Unfortunately, like many of the major debates in Washington, immigration has become a stalemate-where both sides are imprisoned by their own rhetoric or attachment to sacred cows that prevent the possibility of a balanced solution.
Immigration Reform will not occur until Conservative Republicans, like myself, become part of the solution. I am here today to begin that conversation.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants.
If you wish to work, if you wish to live and work in America, then we will find a place for you...
This is where prudence, compassion and thrift all point us toward the same goal: bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society.
Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors.

Good article about the criminality in the Executive Branch. Such is my revulsion for Eric the Red, that I almost miss Butch Reno (almost). This present government is practically a Marxist Tweed Ring.
What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within a foreign country wherein that country is in a death struggle with those syndicates?
Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?
Let's not leave out the DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.
It's organized, it is spread through every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned. It's the FedGov acting like mafiosa.
0bama, Holder and Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is state-sponsored terrorism. These criminal thugs are dragging our country down to the level of Tehran and Pyongyang.
I couldn’t agree more and it’s directly the fault of 0bummer and his lapdog Holder.
IMO they have proved themselves to be more than sponsors of terrorism. They are themselves terrorists now.
Maybe there are too many higher ups involved in the gun trade and maybe there are connections to similar corrupt politicos on our side of the border. Remember the Sinaloa cartel guy on trial in Chicago who claims that the Chicago pols were working with them.
I will believe it when I see it.He’s managed to avoid anything and everything.
I would love to see this criminal brought to justice. It was a dumb idea to put a gangstah in charge of the DOJ to begin with.
