Video: Ted Cruz Blasts Holder On Megyn Kelly, Says He Should Resign

You can add Senator Ted Cruz(R-TX) to the growing number of pols calling for Atty General Eric Holder’s ouster.

In an interview with Megyn Kelly on America Live, Thursday, Cruz  reflected on his experience working at the Justice Dept and used it to weigh in on the numerous scandals surrounding  Holder.

Via Fox News Insider:


“The conduct of the Justice Department does not inspire confidence. We have seen pattern after pattern with respect to investigation of the media. We have seen the Department of Justice willing to seize the phone records, to seize the emails of this network, of the Associated Press and by all appearances the attorney general went before Congress, stated he had nothing to do with it, it’s become public that he did in fact have quite a bit to do with it. The attorney general needs to come forward and explain what the truth is and why he told Congress something different,” said Cruz.

“You know a thing or two about being attorney general and about the law,” said Megyn, citing his time as deputy attorney general under President George W. Bush, as well as his education at Harvard Law. “How unusual is it, in your experience, for the DOJ to be going after reporters, their records and so on? Is this something that would likely stand out in Eric Holder’s mind?”

“It’s unprecedented,” he responded. “And the degree of willingness of this administration to target, to target a reporter for this network as an unindicted co-conspirator? I mean, that is without precedent. And, unfortunately, I think it’s part and parcel of a pattern from this administration of not respecting the Bill of Rights.”

Cruz went on to declare that Obama should “absolutely” call for Holder‘s resignation because of the AG’s “willingness to disregard the law.”
Kelly asked him what he thought of the right-wing bomb-thrower insults that are often hurled his way, and Cruz answered, “Folks are entitled to throw whatever insults they want. From my end, I have no intention of reciprocating. I will not response in kind.”

Just what you want to hear from a statesman – as opposed to a divisive, hyper-political community organizer (iykwimaityd.)

Meanwhile, over at PMSNBC, the juicebox crowd are circling the wagons for their mighty hero, Holder, aka the “Moses of our time”. 

MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson called Attorney General Eric Holder “the Moses of our time” Wednesday on “Martin Bashir.”

He was responding to Bashir’s mention of the mounting calls for Holder to step down.

“I think the attorney general should step down, too”, Dyson began, “off of that plateau where he resides in high principle….and whip some heads!”

In case you’re not rolling on the floor, laughing yet, it gets better.

He continued, “but he shouldn’t give up his office. What he should understand is that he is the chief law-giver of the United States of America, so to speak – he’s the MOSES of our time – and at least for this administration.”

Interesting point… Moses told Pharaoh, “let my people go…” because they had been enslaved by the Egyptians for 400+ years.

Holder said the focus on the Black Panther case demeaned “my people” when Congress asked about the Justice Dept. dismissal of the voter intimidation case.

House Judiciary Chair Calls For Holder To Step Down (Video)

Rep Bob Goodlatte (VA – R), the House Judiciary Chair has Called for AG Eric Holder to Step Down, which he actually did for the first time during the Fast and Furious controversy.

Congressman Randy Forbes joined Martha Maccallum on America’s Newsroom, today, to discuss Goodlatte’s letter to Holder, which states that “media reports and statements issued by the Department regarding the search warrants for Mr. Rosen’s emails appear to be at odds with your sworn testimony before the Committee.”

“I think when all this clears out…we’re going to find out that he didn’t tell the truth to the Judiciary Committee,” Forbes told Maccallum.

As they mentioned in the clip, the increasingly absurd Jay Carney actually told reporters, yesterday that it was ‘SELF-EVIDENT’ HOLDER TOLD CONGRESS THE TRUTH.


Fox News Joins Media Boycott Of Holder ‘Off the Record’ Confab (Video)

Early Thursday morning, Fox News was still undecided on whether or not to attend an off the record meeting with embattled Atty General Eric Holder. Holder has scheduled sessions with media reps for Thursday and Friday, and a number of them have bailed out.

When Fox and Friends aired, this morning, the hosts were under the impression that Fox was going.

After being targeted by the Regime, I could kinda see why they would want to be there to see what was being said, but later Thursday morning, Fox News decided to stand with CNN, McClatchy, the Associated Press, New York Times, CBS, National Journal,  and Huffington Post to reject Holder’s transparent and self serving attempts to schmooze the media.

The Washington Post and Politico have accepted.

Introducing… Tony Katz Tonight! (Videos)

Radio show host Tony Katz is launching a new internet based talk show,  Tony Katz Tonight, which promises to bring a new perspective to the news of the day and a fresh take on late night television.

Katz needs to raise $25,000 and has started a “crowdfunding” campaign to connect directly with fans.

“Late night TV is stale – it’s boring,” Katz noted in a press release, today. “The format hasn’t changed and the guest selection has gotten worse. Exactly how many vapid non-stars does America want to hear from? Johnny Carson used to smoke on the set. Now even talking about smoking can get you seven years in the PC gulag.”

Tony Katz Tonight is using Indiegogo to solicit the  funds needed to continue his endeavor.

“Contribution levels get people huge thanks, web links, personalized videos and a chance to be a part of one of the tapings”, Katz explained.

In an environment where media outlets are consolidating and programming is becoming homogenous, Tony Katz is pursuing an alternative path, proving that original content will thrive in a free market.  In addition to raising capital and awareness of the program, they are also pursuing traditional network distribution of the program.

Here are a couple of test run episodes:
