    WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama has treated first lady Michelle Obama to a surprise birthday party at a tony Washington restaurant known for its commitment to organically grown food. Surprising the birthday girl Saturday night at Restaurant Nora in Washington's Dupont Circle neighborhood were her mother Marian Robinson and friends, including Attorney General Eric Holder, White House Adviser Valerie Jarrett and Jocelyn Frye, who is a domestic policy adviser to both the president and first lady. Mrs. Obama walked into the restaurant in a dark, knee-length frock. President Obama was dressed casually with no tie. Michelle Obama will turn 46...

    He attacks Obama's co-opting of the DOJ for the advancement of leftism, not justice. Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey delivered a sharp criticism of the Obama Justice Department, particularly the DOJ Voting Section, in a speech republished in Hillsdale College’s Imprimis . In a broadside aimed at the Obama-era DOJ, Mukasey hits the department’s biased and partisan law enforcement policies. Mukasey’s speech should be required reading for every presidential campaign. Mukasey revisits the dismissal of the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party by Eric Holder and other political appointees shortly after the 2009 inauguration: During the 2008...

    The Justice Department issued new guidance to its prosecutors on Wednesday, aimed at encouraging more white-collar criminal cases against corporate executives. The new policies come amid persistent criticism that the Justice Department, even while negotiating multi-billion-dollar settlements with large banks, has not been aggressive in prosecuting individuals for financial misconduct—including after the mortgage crisis that devastated the U.S. economy. The policy changes were outlined in a memo issued to Justice Department attorneys and to the FBI, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates was expected to discuss the issue in a speech Thursday at New York University’s law school.

According to Clarke, their rhetoric has caused an “open season” on police officers. “I am too pissed off tonight to be diplomatic with what’s going on and I’m not going to stick my head in the sand about it,” Clarke said. “I said last December war had been declared on the American police officer led by some high profile people, one...

Appearing on today's Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, Cullors also blithely spoke of "the murder of Mike Brown" in Ferguson, MO. Neither of the co-guest hosts sitting in for Harris-Perry, Richard Liu and Janet Mock, challenged Cullors' characterization. This despite the fact that even Eric Holder's Justice Department found no wrongdoing on the part of the police officer who shot Brown. View the video here.

He even ruled out a U.S. Supreme Court appointment, if he is asked. That means that if Hillary Clinton were elected president and offered him a seat on the high court, he would have an answer ready. “I’d say, 'Madame President, with all due respect, you need to pick somebody who’s a) younger and b) who’s a lot more interested,' " Holder said in a candid interview with The...

Among the murdered was the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, ordained when he was 18. There are not enough words to condemn this despicable act.

A WALL STREET JOURNAL (WSJ) expose of what the Ferguson effect really means puts up crime stats that really are hard to believe. “Shooting incidents are up 500% in an East Harlem precinct compared with last year.” But what is the larger theme behind this skein of shootings, stabbings and raw violence? The Obama administration’s theme of hatred of white, heterosexual males is the real story here. Ever since his diversity crowd grabbed...

But apparently he could not leave without one last abuse of taxpayer funds. Holder is the only attorney general in history to be held in contempt of Congress. But that didn’t stop the Justice Department from releasing a nine-minute paean to him, which paints him as a cross between Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Theresa. It’s entitled “Attorney General Eric Holder: The People’s Lawyer.”...

Not only did the usual jelly-backed Senate Republicans vote to confirm Lynch, they were led by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whose job is, ostensibly, to be the leader of the conservative opposition to Obama and his lawless progressive agenda. In moving the Lynch nomination McConnell broke a pre-election promise that no attorney general nominee would be considered in...

    Much has been written about Obama’s controversial appointments, not only to the federal bench, but to key cabinet positions, as well as to the unaccountable (and probably unconstitutional) “Czar” positions. Much of the criticism has dwelled on the Obama administration’s lack of vetting when filling these rolls—but that’s not the issue. To the contrary, the Obama team did investigate thoroughly and they choose precisely. When an administration repeatedly nominates hard-left individuals, it’s not a vetting error—it’s a pattern. We should not allow the media to portray these appointments as a series of errors; but rather, we need to realize that...

The officers were accused of bludgeoning him to death in the course of subduing him—they claimed that he had “reached for a gun” and “used insulting language,” which ostensibly meant that he posed a threat meriting the use of deadly force. But Hall’s bad behavior hadn’t mattered to prosecutors: The officers were indicted, tried, and convicted...

    Loretta Lynch, President Obama's attorney general nominee who once appeared to be on a glide path to confirmation, is now a vote away from losing the job after months of delay, thanks mostly to her views on illegal immigration. Senate Republicans leaders have postponed a confirmation vote on Lynch, who was nominated more than four months ago. And each passing day has generated another GOP "no" vote, even from Republicans who typically would be amenable to approving Lynch, who is now serving as the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York and is highly regarded for her legal...

    The most recent news from Ferguson concerns what Eric Holder has rightly called the “ambush shooting” of two police officers outside the city’s police department. This incident occurred in the wake of two detailed reports released by the Department of Justice. The first report deals in depth with the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. The report recommended that the case against him be closed. The second DOJ report contained a scathing indictment of the sad state of affairs within the entire criminal justice system of Ferguson. The combined effect of these two reports is likely...

    Lawlessness: The latest casualties in Eric Holder's anti-cop race war are two Ferguson, Mo., officers shot at a protest rally. The ambush follows the attorney general smearing the entire Ferguson police force as racist. 'Acknowledgment nine months ago would have kept that from happening!" one protester shouted, referring to the August police shooting of Michael Brown. "It's time for the (people) to finally fight back against these racist ass pigs!" another protester tweeted. Just hours earlier, Ferguson's police chief stepped down in response to Holder's 100-page report claiming Ferguson police engaged in systemic racism against local blacks. "Nothing in this...

    Another shooting has taken place in Ferguson, Missouri -- and this time, two police officers were the victims. The violence should not come as a surprise, given the ugly tone set by the nation's top law enforcement officer, Attorney General Eric Holder. The most divisive attorney general since Richard Nixon's John Mitchell, Holder has fanned the flames of racial grievance for much of his tenure. In his early days in office, he called America "a nation of cowards" on racial issues. Last week, his target was the Ferguson Police Department. Holder promised, "We are prepared to use all the power...

    Ferguson, Missouri is back in the news again. Last week the Justice Department released two reports about the Ferguson police department. In one report they completely exonerated Darren Wilson for the death of Michael Brown. Wilson did not shoot Brown in the back, Brown did not have his hands up and Wilson had no racial motivation. In other words, the entire cause for protest in Ferguson was inaccurate, fabricated or an outright lie. The Grand Jury got it right when they didn’t indict Wilson, even Eric Holder’s Justice Department had to acknowledge there were no facts indicating any crime was...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Method Man made an appearance on "News Nation with Tamron Hall" on MSNBC to talk about an upcoming film, but was instead asked about tension with police in the aftermath of a shooting early Thursday that injured two officers in Ferguson, Mo. "With this thing that happened in Ferguson just now with the two officers, sad, very sad," he said. "I hate to say that the FBI report kind of played into this, and these things shouldn't be happening, but you reap what you sow, in a sense, you know?" The FBI said in January no civil rights charges should...

  • EmailGate: Lois Lerner, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder. How Corrupt Is This Administration?

    Although we all talk about Hillary’s EmailGate, we shouldn’t forget that this controversy actually started with Lois Lerner. When Republicans tried to find out whether the IRS had purposefully targeted conservative organizations, this former head of the Internal Revenue Service said her email had suddenly disappeared. Mark “The Great One” Levin debunked that excuse months ago: [Watch Video] In other words, there’s no way that Lerner’s hard drive suddenly crashed causing her to lose two years of emails. It’s just not possible. And then came in Hillary, who the Benghazi Committee says, didn’t hand over all her emails and who...

The report only brings the conditions of...

    Attorney General Eric Holder used secretive email accounts under aliases during his tenure at the Justice Department, raising fresh questions about the Obama administration’s compliance with federal records laws as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reels from her own email scandal. Holder has emailed under the nom de plume “Henry Yearwood” in the past, former Justice Department officials say. The Huffington Post reported Tuesday that Holder had used three aliases. The current is unknown. Republicans familiar with the issue said that even when congressional officials traveled to the Justice Department for so-called “in camera” review of documents, Holder’s email...

    Following the scathing report that Eric Holder’s office issued which essentially indicted the entire Ferguson police department as hateful racists, rather than finding specific incidents of wrongdoing, a question arose. Can the Department of Justice in Washington reach out into the state and local levels of law enforcement and essentially close up a shop? Check out this video of a Fox News interview on the subject provided by Michael van der Galien at PJ Media. J. Christian Adams takes Attorney General Eric Holder to task for his unconstitutional and even downright dictatorial wish to shut down police departments that...
  • Obama Justice Department’s bogus report on racism by Ferguson Police Department

    Addressing the nation from Selma, Ala., on Saturday, President Obama said that while racism may be “no longer endemic,” as it was 50 years ago, his Justice Department’s report on Ferguson shows that the “nation’s racial history still casts its long shadow upon us.” Sorry: The Justice report doesn’t prove disparate treatment, let alone discrimination. In fact, it looks more like something ginned up to distract from the embarrassing fact that Justice (in another report released the same day) wound up fully validating the findings of the Ferguson grand jury. Racism is serious, and those engaging in it should be...

    Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. vowed a firm response on Friday to what he called “appalling” racial misconduct by law enforcement officials in Ferguson, Mo., suggesting he was prepared to seek the dismantling of the police force there if necessary. “We are prepared to use all the powers that we have, all the power that we have, to ensure that the situation changes there,” Mr. Holder told reporters here after returning from Columbia, S.C., where he appeared with President Obama at a town hall-style meeting at Benedict College. “That means everything from working with them to coming up with...
