Buh-Bye: Most Corrupt Attorney General In American History Stepping Down

download
I was just getting used to referring him as “Eric (Why Is This Man Still Our Attorney General) Holder” and now this happens. But it’s no surprise. He ‘s been talking about resigning for awhile.
The race is now on for Obama to nominate a replacement and have him or her (probably her) confirmed before the Republican Senate convenes in January.
That of course is the reason for the timing of this announcement. The Regime is admitting that the Republicans are going to win the majority in the Senate in the midterm elections. And The Firewall must be upheld.
Obama must nominate someone as nauseatingly corrupt as Holder is to take his place – someone who will keep the heat off of the criminal activities of the Regime.
I think it will be the corrupt CA Attorney General Kamala Harris – which is very bad news that I will write about when I have more time.
I wrote about Holder’s corrupt, scandal-ridden tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement official at the Conversation:

Holder, who should have resigned in disgrace after the Fast and Furious scandal erupted in the Spring of 2011, soldiered on even after he was held in contempt by congress in the summer of 2012.

His tenure as the nation’s top law enforcement officer will be remembered as one marked by scandal, corruption, hyper-politicization, opposition to 2nd Amendment rights, hostility toward conservatives, and an abysmal batting average in the courts.

Under Holder, the DOJ began treating terrorists as criminal defendants rather than enemy combatants, and purged references to “radical Islam” in FBI training materials.

His first scandal erupted when the DOJ dropped the New Black Panther voter intimidation case in May of 2009, (described by Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation I’ve ever seen.”)

Under Holder, the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ became hyper-politicized sewer that engaged in politicized hiring practices in the career civil service ranks.

In June 2008, Holder admitted to the American Constitution Society (an organization started as a liberal counterweight to the Federalist Society) that the Justice Department was “going to be looking for people who share our values.”

Dinesh D’Souza Reacts To His Community Confinement Sentence: “I’ve Got A Big Smile On My Face…”

Dinesh D’Souza was sentenced on Tuesday to five years of probation, spending eight months of it in a community confinement center, after pleading guilty to a campaign finance law violation. Prosecutors were seeking a 10-16 month prison sentence in what may considered an unequal application of the law. Most often, violators of this type are simply fined.

But the conservative author and filmmaker has written a series of critical books and movies about Obama. Eric (why is this man still Attorney General)  Holder has obviously taken note.

D’Souza was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Richard Berman in Manhattan – a Clinton appointee.

Via Newsmax:

He was also given a $30,000 fine and ordered to do one day of community service a week during his probation.

The Smoking Gun website reported that for the first eight months of his probation term, D’Souza will do his community service in a “community confinement center” in San Diego. He will also have to perform one day per week of community service during his probation term. Typically, community service can include tasks like working with the homeless or teaching inmates, though no details were given Tuesday.

He discussed his sentence on the Kelly File with Megyn Kelly, Tuesday night, saying, “I’ve got a big smile on my face and I think I have for several hours and I can’t wipe it off because this was really an effort to put me out of business. The government was trying to lock me up for 10-15 months and a federal judge said, no.”

Eric (Why is this man still Atty. General?) Holder Still Refusing To Hand Over Fast And Furious Docs

Eric-Holder-AG

For some inexplicable reason, Eric (Why is this man still Atty General?) Holder doesn’t want to hand over a detailed list of the thousands of documents being withheld from Congress under Obama’s Executive Privilege claim.

A federal Judge ordered the DOJ to produce the “Vaughn list” back in July in response to a Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit.  A month later, a federal judge ordered the DOJ to turn over “a privilege log of withheld documents to the House Oversight Committee.” Both requests are supposed to be completed by October 1, but get this – Eric (why is this man still Atty Gen?) Holder is stonewalling da court.

You would almost think he has something to hide.

Via POLITICO

Attorney General Eric Holder is again asking a federal court to delay the transfer of disputed documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious to a House committee.

In a new court filing Monday night, Justice Department lawyers asked U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson not to require Holder to turn over any of the roughly 64,000 pages of documents to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee until after her rulings can be appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

“The Department respectfully submits that it would be preferable for the parties, this Court, and the D.C. Circuit — if an appeal were taken — to have any injunctive order await the conclusion of the district court litigation to allow for orderly and complete appellate proceedings,” DOJ lawyers wrote.

Jackson has previously denied DOJ permission to file an immediate appeal, although lawyers for Holder indicated in the new filing (posted here) that they may do so anyway. Any appeal is likely to take months and perhaps more than a year to resolve. If that process does not begin until Jackson rules definitively on the the executive privilege claim President Barack Obama has made for many of the documents, the timeline for the case being resolved could begin to approach the end of the Obama administration.

Townhall’s Katie Pavlich says, “how convenient that the appeals process will bump right up against the end of Obama’s, and therefore Holder’s, time in office.

This tactic and strategy has been used by Holder since the beginning to run out the clock until a new administration comes into office and dumps the case.

Regardless, Holder is still required to produce a list of documents by October 1, which will give us significant insight into the kind of documents the Department of Justice is trying so desperately to hide.

It would be nice if that now archaic concept – “rule of law” were still in force in this country. But as you may have guessed – as far as the ruling class is concerned, that is quite a thing of the past. Every technique the Obama  regime has used to get away with scandal after scandal will be used by every administration to succeed him – and when the fundamental transformation is complete -  we’re most of the way there –  those administrations will be Social Democrat  because they will have achieved their long sought after permanent majority. I guess congratulations are in order before they take us over the cliff.

Holder Flack Accidentally Calls Issa Staff For Help Spinning IRS Scandal.

Whoopsie-do! He meant to call Cummings’ staff.

A DOJ flack caught trying to collude with Dems on the Oversight and Reform Committee? Oh my goodness, wait til Eric (Why is this man still our Atty. General?) Holder hears about this!11!!

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa’s staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder.

The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine. Issa believes the call was intended to be made to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cumming’s staff, the ranking member on the oversight panel, the letter said.

According to the letter, Fallon – who is not named in the letter but confirmed he made the call – asked if the aides could release the IRS scandal documents to “selected reporters” to give Fallon an “opportunity to comment publicly on it.”

Fallon explained to Issa aides that the Justice Department’s Office of Legislative Affairs had not permitted him to release the documents to the public and he wanted to get ahead of the story “before the Majority” – meaning Issa – could share it, according to the letter.

This is a breitbart scoop, so you can read the rest, there. But talk about awkward. Now, they’re stuck pushing Pee-Wee Hermanesqe spin to explain the snafu. (I meant to do that!)

No one should be surprised to see Cummings working with the Regime — not to provide oversight (which is his job) but to do the exact opposite —  help them with their cover ups and cover stories.

As far as the IRS scandal goes – Cummings is  a partner in crime.

You may remember that back in April it was revealed that  Lois Lerner had funneled Rep. Cummings Info About True The Vote.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) released emails Wednesday afternoon showing that Lois Lerner coordinated with Rep. Elijah Cummings and committee Democrats multiple times between 2012 and 2013,  providing them information they requested about True the Vote, the 501(c)(4) voter integrity organization that was singled out for IRS scrutiny (not to mention FBI, ATF,  OSHA and  EPA-affiliated TCEQ scrutiny.)

Via Eliana Johnson NRO: 

In a letter signed by his five subcommittee chairmen, Issa raised the possibility that Cummings coordinated with the IRS, “surreptitiously” contacting the agency to request information about True the Vote.

E-mails unearthed in the course of Issa’s investigation into the IRS’s inappropriate targeting of right-leaning groups show that in January 2013, a member of Cummings’s staff contacted the IRS asking for any publicly available information on True the Vote. The matter was discussed by IRS officials that included Lois Lerner, the former exempt-organizations chief who retired in the wake of the targeting scandal. One of Lerner’s deputies, Holly Paz, subsequently sent the organization’s 990 forms to Cummings and his staff — not an illegal disclosure of taxpayer information, though sources say the exchange of such information was not routine.

Sharyl Attkisson: Obama Regime Stonewalling Congress On Refuge Children’s Whereabouts (Video)

On Wednesday’s  “Steve Malzberg Show” on Newsmax, former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson said the Obama Regime is refusing to tell Congress where they sent the tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors who crossed the U.S.-Mexican Border this summer after they were processed though holding centers along the border.

Via Breitbart TV:

Attkisson said the Obama administration seems to be intentionally stonewalling by not answering letters from members of Congress or reporters questions.
She added the only recourse is a FOIA lawsuit that will take years to go though the system.

Attkisson was also on WMAL, Wednesday to talk about the issue.

Why do you suppose the Regime is being so tight lipped about this? What’s the big secret?

I’ll let the Conservative Tree House fill you in. (Hint: “tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors” may be a slightly inflated number.)

We began documenting two months ago the “border crisis” of unaccompanied alien children, UAC’s, was a pure ruse, a figment. Constructed simply to create the optics of crisis and support the demand for comprehensive immigration reform prior to the congressional recess.

Evidence continued to mount week after week as we followed the money flowing out of the DHS and HHS agencies to various left-wing social constructs who were profiting from the scheme. Panic and alarm sounded as $3.7 billion was demanded by Obama to cope with the non existent “border crisis” - couched more favorably as a “humanitarian crisis”.

Three weeks ago we shared the fact that well over 40,000 reported UAC’s were missing from this years record keeping.  The facts catching up with the ruse.

Well, the truth was/is they’re not technically missing because they never existed in the first place. DHS, which compiles the reports coming from the Border Patrol, and then gives the statistical summaries of the reports, had artifically inflated the apprehension numbers to support the White House narrative.

Read the full report.

The Conservative Tree House reports that their research indicates that “the entire construct of a humanitarian crisis for children is a ruse.”

There simply are not mass influxes of Unaccompanied Alien Children. For almost two months we have been repeating that it’s all a fraud – the influx is families, or more specifically women with children.

Shock: DOJ Attorney Defending IRS Formerly Worked at the IRS and Was Involved in Targeting Scheme (Video)

The Obama administration routinely engages in the left-wing equivalent of Taqiyya - which is defined as lying to non-Muslims to advance the cause of Islam and defeat unbelievers. You can see a perfect example of this in the interview Sean Hannity did Wednesday night with London Imam Anjem Choudary.

Likewise, it is permissible for an Alinsky-trained radical to lie to non-Marxists (and lofo default libs) to advance the cause of Socialism and defeat the non-believers.  As Obama in particular has demonstrated time and time again – they have no compunction about deceiving fellow Americans if it will help them push forward their toxic agenda. The light of truth on their actual agenda is like garlic to a vampire, to be avoided at all costs.

The Regime is now embroiled in too many scandals to keep up with – and they like it that way. They’re overwhelming the enemy (you and me)  with shock and awe. The latest full frontal assaults: threatening to bypass Congress on immigration and impose unilateral amnesty, threatening to bypass Congress by signing a UN climate change treaty.

And the IRS scandal is bubbling to the surface again as new revelations come to light, but the Regime knows that if they stall and stonewall long enough – the MSM will allow them to run out the clock as they have again and again.

Chief Counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow says that the one thing we can count on as we learn more about the IRS  scandal is “the Obama administration’s dedication to misleading the American people and Congress.”

Via Fox News:

After being told repeatedly by a number of administration officials — including the IRS Commissioner — that former top IRS official Lois Lerner’s computer problems resulted in the destruction of thousands of her key emails, we have now been told that those emails actually exist – backed up by an emergency system in the event of a catastrophe.

Justice Department officials have now told a federal court that the problem was not that the Lerner emails couldn’t be found, but that the back-up system was “too onerous to search.”

“Too onerous to search”? Unbelievable. The truth is that the Obama administration is doing everything it can — including presenting false and misleading information — to stall what can only be described as a faux investigation.

At the same time, we are now learning from the filing in federal court that Lerner’s Blackberry was wiped clean — destroyed — after her computer hard drives “crashed” and after Congress began its probe into the targeting scheme.

Sekulow notes that this has become “standard operating procedure for the Obama administration. Delay. Derail. Deceive.”

Meanwhile, the Oversight and Reform Committee has discovered another example of an outrageous conflict of interest.

New documents obtained by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee reveal a current Justice Department attorney defending the IRS actually worked at the IRS and was involved in the IRS’s illegal scheme to target conservatives.

And, as it turns out, he also worked in the White House Counsel’s office.

This disturbing finding, posted here, is outlined below:

The Committee has learned that Andrew Strelka, currently an attorney at the Justice Department’s Tax Division, worked from 2008 to 2010 at the IRS in the Exempt Organizations (EO) Division, formerly headed by Lois Lerner. Emails show that Strelka was directly involved in the IRS targeting of conservative tax-exempt applicants. In March 2010, Strelka received an e-mail from IRS manager Ronald Shoemaker directing him to “[b]e on the lookout for a tea party case.” Shoemaker directed Strelka: “If you have received or do receive a case in the future involving an exemption for an organization having to do with tea party let me know.”

Strelka also received an email in June 2011 about the crash of Lois Lerner’s hard drive.  Until recently, Strelka represented the IRS in civil litigation relating to the IRS targeting.

Sekulow appeared on Fox Business with Lou Dobbs to discuss the latest revelations. Sekulow said we’re talking about “a classic case of obstruction of justice.”

Video: Joe diGenova Unleashes Angry Torrent Against “Churlish,” “Childish,” “Unhinged” Eric Holder

Former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova, a frequent guest on  WMAL in Washington, D.C., had some choice words for Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday.   Asked about Holder’s recent contention that there is “racial animus” in much of the opposition to Barack Obama and himself, diGenova didn’t hold back.

WMAL’s Larry O’Conner played audio from the ABC News interview Sunday of Holder asserting, ”There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me that is directed at me, directed at the president. People talk about taking their country back. I can’t look into peoples’ hearts, look into peoples’ minds, but it seems to me that this president has been treated differently than others.”

DiGenova let loose this blistering torrent of abuse:

His comments are beneath his office. Eric Holder has become unhinged. These comments are stupid, they’re silly, they’re churlish, they’re childish, they’re sophomoric. This is faculty lounge crap. The president of the United States and the attorney general are both black. Is it not surprising to them that this happened in the United States of America? That the president, a black president, has been elected twice by the American people? That the attorney general has been around for two terms?

This is not a racist country.

What is going on here is because of the incompetence of this administration and particularly this president (and may I say, regrettably, the attorney general himself) they have politicized every aspect of government to the core. And when people react to it legitimately, claiming constitutional violations the attorney general says something like this?

I mean what he is doing is demonstrating why he should not be the attorney general any longer. This is an embarrassment. You wouldn’t hear any other Attorney General talk like this. White, Black, Green, Yellow, Chinese, Hispanic, nobody would talk like this. This is basically stupid. I mean its mind-boggling that the Attorney General could sit there with a major news network, being interviewed by a black correspondent by the way who’s a wonderful reporter, and say things like this.

I mean when you listen to his voice, you hear this kind of trembling doubt in his own mind about whether or not he should say it, and yet he has no governance, he says it anyway.

This really is stupid stuff.

Hey, tell us how you really feel, Joe.

Earlier in the interview, diGenova was asked what he thinks about the situation in Nebraska, where the Governor is fuming because the Regime refuses to tell him where they’re dumping the illegal immigrant minors.

DiGenova recommended that the governor file a lawsuit against the president – for failure to inform them.  “Whether or not there’s a legal responsibility to do so, there’s a political and moral  responsibility for reasons of health care, education, budget, law enforcement,” he said.

Asked if he thought the governor would prevail in the lawsuit, diGenova answered that he had no idea, adding, “but you know what? There’s nothing better than embarrassing this president, because he can’t stand it.”

diGenova came out against impeachment later on in the interview, saying the president is “untouchable.”

“Just leave him alone, let him suffer in his own juices,” diGenova said. “Sarah Palin is out of her mind. It may make her feel good, but we’re not going to impeach the president and we don’t want to. We want him left around as an issue.”

He recommended impeachment for others in the administration like John Koskinen.
