"The black US attorney has common cause with the black criminal"

According to Department of Justice whistleblower J. Christian Adams, AG Eric Holder has a certain something in his wallet. It is a quotation — and he has carried it for decades. It essentially says, to quote Adams, "Blackness is more important than anything, and the black US attorney has common cause with the black criminal." It's not surprising that Holder would feel this way about black lawyers and criminals.

Because in his case they're one and the same.

Holder, the man whose misfeasance led him to drop the infamous Black Panther voter-intimidation case, now may have done what all corrupt men, sooner or later, eventually do. He has tripped up in his efforts to hide his misdeeds.

KEYWORDS: fast; furious; holder; race
White? Black? Yellow? The key color is orange, in that Holder needs to be in an orange jump suit.

“the black US attorney has common cause with the black criminal.”

It isn't just common cause. The black Attorney General(Holder) IS a black criminal. It is that simple.

He needs to be put in prison and share not just “common cause” with black criminals but also a cell.

Therefore, Holder has common cause with the Pres—ent of the United States.

I agree — I also suspect he would respond to the lawmen essentially like a guy I saw at Ft.Carson in the 70’s who came into the day room and changed channel on the TV. another “Brother” got up and changed it back -this happened several times then the first “brother “ left—came back with his entrenching tool and laid open the head of the “Brother who had opposed him. Then walked back to his bunk lay down put an open Bible over his face and pretended to sleep until the MP arrived— then he started resisting by Yelling “Still a Slave— Still a Slave.Which didn’t work much as one MP was a “brother” the other a “Latino” and our
XO was also a black guy who placed a size 10 1/2 combat boot in the protesting “brothers” coxyx and told him he was a disgrace to the race. (Holder would be the one yelling Still a Slave.)

Identity politics is just that: it’s about identity.

A Black may be many things, but his identity is as a Black in all those other areas.

A Latino may be many things, but his identity is as a Latino in all those other areas.

A Gay may be many things, but he identity is as a Gay in all those other areas.

Thus, they define themselves as a Black lawyer, a Latino American, a Gay minister. The identity is who they are, the other aspect is merely a role they are playing.

From 2008, written by Richard Cohen, no less.

This tracks back to BJ Clinton.

If Hillary! runs instead of Barry she’s got this as baggage.

By Richard Cohen
Tuesday, December 2, 2008

Soon after Bill Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, the former president and I had a brief telephone conversation. I had been downright heated about the pardon, a lot angrier than I had ever been about Monica Lewinsky. Clinton implied that I had things historically backward. Long after the Rich pardon had been forgotten, he said, the Lewinsky scandal would remain a vivid memory. That day is yet to come. The Rich pardon is back.

Will the Marc Rich Pardon Hinder Eric Holder’s Confirmation?
Pardon My Exception
Mr. Holder at Justice?
The vehicle for this lingering echo from 2001 is the choice of Eric Holder to be Barack Obama’s attorney general. Holder was Clinton’s deputy attorney general, and he played a significant role in the pardon. When asked by the White House what he thought about a pardon for Rich, Holder replied, “Neutral, leaning towards favorable.” These four words have stalked him since.

Rich was a commodities trader who amassed both a fortune and some influential friends in the 1970s and ‘80s. Along with his partner, Pincus Green, he was indicted in 1983 on 65 counts of tax evasion and related matters. Before he could be prosecuted, however, he fled to Switzerland. There he remained, avoiding extradition and eventually arranging to be represented by Jack Quinn, a Washington lawyer and Clinton’s onetime White House counsel — in other words, a certified power broker. Quinn did an end run around the Justice Department’s pardon office and went straight to Holder and the White House. With a stroke of a pen, justice was not done.

Holder was not just an integral part of the pardon process, he provided the White House with cover by offering his go-ahead recommendation. No alarm seemed to sound for him. Not only had strings been pulled, but it was rare to pardon a fugitive — someone who had avoided possible conviction by avoiding the inconvenience of a trial. The U.S. attorney’s office in New York — which, Holder had told the White House, would oppose any pardon — was kept ignorant of what was going on. Afterward, it was furious.

When I tell people that I am bothered by the choice of Holder for attorney general, they invariably say that everyone is entitled to a mistake. Yes, indeed. And I add for them that in almost every other way, Holder is a dream nominee. He has been U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, a judge and a well-regarded lawyer in private practice. Moreover, to my personal knowledge, he is charming and well liked by his subordinates. A better attorney general nominee you’re not likely to find . . . the pardon excepted.

But the pardon cannot be excepted. It suggests that Holder, whatever his other qualifications, could not say no to power. The Rich pardon request had power written all over it — the patronage of important Democratic fundraisers, for instance. Holder also said he was “really struck” by the backing of Rich by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and the possibility of “foreign policy benefits that would be reaped by granting the pardon.” This is an odd standard for American justice, but more than that, what was Holder thinking? That U.S.-Israeli relations would suffer? Holder does not sound naive. He sounds disingenuous.

Holder sounded just as disingenuous when he told a House committee that he did not “reflexively oppose” the pardon of a fugitive because “I had previously supported a successful pardon request for a fugitive, Preston King.” King, a black civil rights activist, chose to be tried for draft evasion in 1961 rather than submit to what he considered racist treatment. After his conviction, he fled to Europe. The two cases are not in the least similar.

As noted, any person is entitled to make a mistake. But no one is entitled to be attorney general. That’s a post that ought to be reserved for a lawyer who appreciates that while he reports to the president, he serves the people. This dual obligation was beyond the ken of George W. Bush’s attorney general once removed, Alberto Gonzales, whose idea of telling truth to power came down to saying “Yes, sir. Yes, sir.” On Guantanamo, domestic spying and Bush’s “l’État c’est moi” view of the presidency, Gonzales was a cipher, and the damage of his tenure still needs to be repaired.

Holder was involved, passively or not, in just the sort of inside-the-Beltway influence peddling that Barack Obama was elected to end. He is not one of Obama’s loathed lobbyists; he was merely their instrument — a good man, certainly, who just as certainly did a bad thing. Maybe he deserves an administration job, just not the one he’s getting.

Quite the thing for a prosecutor, officer of the court, who is supposed to be blind to everything except equal justice to be carrying.

One would almost say it is unethical

...What’s sad is that it takes this long for evidence of nothing is clear or transparent. Hopeful that something can be done, and Justice will be served...
