Sens. Cruz and Lee: AG Nominee Should Say Whether She Approves of Executive Amnesty (Updated)

download (1)

Obama’s pick of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder (the most corrupt Attorney General in American history) is surprisingly uncontroversial. She is respected by Republicans and Democrats alike and has no known scandals in her background. If there is anything about her that would be disqualifying – it hasn’t been discovered yet. 

But Republicans plan to ask her a question in which a wrong answer would be considered disqualifying.

Via Breitbart News:

Cruz, Lee, incoming Senate Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, each said before the election that Obama’s choice to replace Holder must denounce Obama’s planned executive amnesty.

McConnell said that it should be a “condition” of the nominee’s confirmation that they oppose executive amnesty.

Today Sens. Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Mike Lee, R-UT, released the following statement in regards to the president’s nomination of U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.

“President Obama’s Attorney General nominee deserves fair and full consideration of the United States Senate, which is precisely why she should not be confirmed in the lame duck session of Congress by senators who just lost their seats and are no longer accountable to the voters. The Attorney General is the President’s chief law enforcement officer. As such, the nominee must demonstrate full and complete commitment to the law. Loretta Lynch deserves the opportunity to demonstrate those qualities, beginning with a statement whether or not she believes the President’s executive amnesty plans are constitutional and legal.”


I spoke too soon. It has been discovered that Obama’s pick to replace Eric Holder is indeed a race-baiting fellow traveler. We were wrong to imagine Obama was capable of appointing a straight shooter.

Should have realized after seeing this, Did Al Sharpton Just Pick The Next Attorney General?

Via Pundit Press: Obama AG Nominee Lynch: Southern Schools Use Zero Tolerance Policies to Send Minorities to Prison:

In a speech given at Long Beach earlier this year, President Obama’s new nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, specifically called out voter ID laws as racist and schools as disproportionately using zero tolerance policies against minorities. The video was uncovered by Pundit Press.

The remarks came near the end of a long speech, explaining the examples that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela set for people.

Ms. Lynch then began talking about the inequities that she sees in the United States, first covering the fact that she see voter ID laws as legislation aimed to disenfranchise minorities.

Saturday Movie Matinee: Disgraceful: Obama Delays Troop Deployment For Political Expedience

The Conversation: ‘Disgraceful’: Retired General Claims Military Pushed For 1,500 Troops Back In September:

On Fox News Friday evening, retired Army Major General and Fox News Military Analyst Bob Scales told Greta Van Susteren that the US military “knew three months ago” that it needed to send additional troops to Iraq, but “it wasn’t until three days after the election” that the Obama administration agreed to do so.

Scales said, “it [sending more troops] was first discussed back in September when the assessment groups in Iraq came back to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Dempsey and said, ‘look, General, there [are] probably nine brigades, Iraqi brigades that are capable of taking the offensive…nine brigades that if we think we reinforce them like we did in 2007 with the Iraqis during the surge. We think we can put enough combat power enough will and enough initiative and enough leadership behind the Iraqis to allow them to take the offensive.’”

Charles Krauthamer later told Van Susteren, “if Scales is right, this is disgraceful. It’s one thing to delay an announcement for 3 days for cynical political reasons – that’s bad enough. But if in fact, the generals wanted this in September, and he delayed the actual deployment until now for political reasons – think of what happened in the interval.”

Is that really the argument you’re going to make in 2014?”

Dr. Ben Carson Throws His Hat Into The Ring For 2016 (Video)

Who doesn’t love Dr. Ben Carson?

Via MRC TV: 

The first Republican to officially announce his candidacy is Dr. Ben Carson, famous pediatric neurosurgeon and author of NY Times bestseller “One Nation.”

Carson became a household name in conservative circles after he was invited to the National Prayer Breakfast in 2013. Carson chose to speak his mind on health care and political correctness to President Barack Obama, stunning the audience.

John Philip Sousa, the great grandson of the famous composer, started a super PAC that has raised over $11 million to draft Dr. Carson to run.

It seems the Doctor has heard their call, and will air an almost 40-minute long video on ABC News introducing himself as a candidate to the American people.

 Senator Bob Corker didn’t have a comment about the Carson run, when asked. What a maroooon.
