Skip to comments.Eric, Merrick, and Jeff: The DOJ abuses of power we see today can be traced back to the abuses of power seen during the Obama administration

In 2013, when asked when he might step down as attorney general, Eric Holder said: "I’m still enjoying what I’m doing, there’s still work to be done. I’m still the President’s wingman, so I’m there with my boy. So we’ll see."
What could he have meant? It didn’t take long after President Obama took office to find out. Holder stayed in to commit more legal mischief. And that established the roots of the legal shambles we see today, with Attorney General Merrick Garland violating President Trump's -- and our -- civil rights.
The pattern of lawlessness started with Holder.
In May 2009, the DOJ dropped prosecution of several New Black Panther members for violating the Voting Rights Act on election day in 2008. When testifying before Congress to explain this decision, Holder claimed his hands were clean and that the decision was made by career Justice Department prosecutors. But that wasn’t true. According to J. Christian Adams, a real career DOJ attorney, the decision not to prosecute was made by Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli, an Obama political appointee, “who overruled a unanimous recommendation for prosecution by Adams and his associates.”
Backed by a videotape of the New Black Panthers intimidating voters, there couldn’t have been a more clear cut case of a Voting Rights Act violation. So why drop the case? An attorney familiar with the Obama Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division observed that Department staff “openly and proudly advocate for a different standard” depending on the race of the alleged civil rights violator.
Another Obama priority was gun control. To that end, the Fast and Furious scheme was hatched in October 2009 by the ATF, a Justice Department agency.

“Nobody better **** with a Biden.”
On Fox News, Sonya LaBosco, Biden’s Director of the Air Marshals National Council said Air Marshals are quietly following Americans who flew into the DC area around Jan 6, 2021.
Vengeful Biden’s TSA has now ordered Air Marshals (who are DOT employes w/ no L/E duties):
<><>to follow J6 people who have not had any type of criminal investigation –
<><>they haven’t committed a crime,
<><>there is no evidence their J6 attendance was illegal,
<><>now three years later Biden insists they are to be followed 24/7.
The Fox News host weighed in, “You’re saying Air Marshals aren’t…tracking terrorists at all?”
HAMAS is laughing so hard they’re rolling on the floor while planning their next moves in the US...
No, it started earlier, but Holder accelerated it to Warp 10.
Lavrentiy Beria would be proud of his disciple.
Wilson was set up to succeed by Teddy R. and William Taft...
They held up the back wall of the tent to allow the camel’s nose to get in...
Did he call Obama “boy?”
It was Janet Reno who order the Branch Davidian church to be sieged.

Billy boy and his tuna wrote the book on abuse of power
Obamer was the orchestrator of the hostile takeover of our country by force. He showed the left that they had all the power and need not fear being exposed or convicted because the msm, courts, fbi etc would all run to their defence and the right would be powerless to stop it.
Up until the reign of terror, the left at least tried to,hide their true intentions, but when he came along, that charade went right out the window, and now they no longer try to conceal what their goal is “A Fundamental Change” in the nation- and he full well meant it and is getting it through violence and lawfare and false impeachment, and u lawful imprisonments in solitary confinement for years for simple protestors etc etc etc
The left are the right hand of Satan- the tools which he uses to undermine everything good and decent about our nation.
The DOJ has become America’s KGB
