Pat Caddell Trashes Holder on Menendez Indictment: DOJ “Is Run By A Political Hack”

On Fox News’ Political Insiders, Easter Sunday, Doug Schoen, John LeBoutillier, and Pat Caddell joined host Julie Banderas to talk about the federal charges against Senator Bob Menendez, which came the same week the DOJ decided not to prosecute Lois Lerner.

The insiders all agreed that the indictment is politically motivated and designed to send a message to the rest of congress.

“It sends a chilling feeling to any other Democrats who are thinking about crossing the Obama White House,” LeBoutillier said.

Democrat pollster Pat Caddell claimed that the Political Insiders was the first show to predict that the Menendez case would become politicized by the “Criminal Injustice Department” which he added, “is run by a political hack – who when he’s not playing the race card, he’s covering up scandal after scandal – be it Solyndra, the IRS, or whatever. They did this to Menendez … to chill the other members. They went after the one Democrat who was speaking with great conscience on this issue. They had this three years ago – the public integrity section – which is itself an oxymoron – is the same section that took out Senator Ted Stevens and got reprimanded after he lost his election, by withholding  evidence.”

Caddell continued, “76% of the American people want congress to have a say. Barack Obama intends to bypass the congress to the UN.

Later Caddell pointed out that the charges against Menendez involve women and trips, and so forth, but, “you got Bill Clinton out there going to Orgy Island with a convicted pedophile. You don’t hear anything about that,” he said.

“The corruption on the Hill is unbelievable – This cover-up of Lois Lerner and the cover-up of Benghazi are worse than anything covered up in Watergate.”

Breitbart TV: ABC’S KARL: MENENDEZ INDICTMENT LIKELY TO QUELL CHALLENGES TO IRAN DEAL:

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl said the indictment of  Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), who is a strong supporter of Israel and opposes President Barack Obama going ahead with an Iran nuclear deal without congressional  approval, will make it harder for Republicans to persuade other Democrats to go against the president and override a veto on Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) legislation calling for congressional oversight.

DOJ: No Contempt Charges For Lois Lerner – Sen. Menendez Indicted

Let’s see. We’ve got two corrupt individuals, here, but two very different treatments under the law.

One of the above did everything she was asked to do and more, kept her mouth shut and destroyed evidence. She gets a gold star.

The other person did bad. He was critical of the administration’s negotiations with Iran and embarrassed the president. He gets indicted.

As Ace says, The masks are all off now.

The DoJ won’t press contempt charges against her for her busted attempt to plead the fifth (Here Is a Statement of Alleged Facts I Want to Introduce Into the Record/Having Done That, I Now Say I Don’t Want to Speak for the Record).

Supposedly the DoJ is still considering bringing some sort of charges against her over the Tea Party Targeting.

(Pssssst: There will be no meaningful charges. You read it here, first!)

As for Democrat Bob Menendez, (who earlier this year suggested that the  White House gets its talking points from Tehran) we have this: 

This is the the quasi fascist state of law enforcement in America today where the DOJ selectively and capriciously decides to enforce the law to the benefit of some and the detriment of others – depending on political considerations.

Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch Accuses Obama Administration of Misleading Court on Hillary Clinton Email Scandal:

Judicial Watch accused the Obama administration of stalling and withholding information from a federal court in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and top aide’s emails.  Last week, Judicial Watch attorneys sought a status conference over the issue of the Hillary Clinton’s and other secret email accounts in order to “avoid further undue delays, prejudice and potential spoliation.” In response, the Justice Department, on behalf of the State Department, told the federal court handling the matter (U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth) that there was no need for a hearing until at least late April and that, contrary to statements by Mrs. Clinton and various administration spokesmen, it was not aware of the secret email issue until recently.  In its response (Reply in Support of a Motion for a Status Conference), Judicial Watch cited Mrs. Clinton’s press statement:

Secretary Clinton was the head of the agency and the State Department cannot claim it was unaware of the State Department’s failure to records-manage agency emails from the Office of the Secretary. In fact, the “Statement from the Office of Former Secretary Clinton” states that “[h]er usage [of non-“state.gov” email for State Department business] was widely known to the over 100 Department and U.S. government colleagues she emailed.”

Judicial Watch also accused the Obama administration of continuing to thwart the FOIA:

The State Department has yet to demonstrate how it is satisfying its obligations under FOIA in light of recent revelations that Secretary Clinton’s emails were not being properly managed, retained and produced. This also applies to emails received or sent by other officials or employees within the Secretary’s office to conduct government business who used non-“state.gov” email addresses. To determine the adequacy of the State Department’s search, both Judicial Watch and the Court should be informed by the Department directly of the details surrounding the retention of agency emails within the Office of the Secretary and the extent of the Department’s ability to search, request and retrieve those records …

Had Judicial Watch not challenged the State Department’s search, this case would most likely have been dismissed before any public revelations were made about the unlawful arrangement relating to the State Department’s handling of agency emails during Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department …

Paging Obama, Holder, Sharpton: Two Cops Shot in Ferguson #CopsLivesMatter

Obama_Blood_Hands_Hope

Two cops were shot in an assassination like attack in Ferguson, Missouri, last night.

Do you think it ever crosses Al Sharpton’s, Eric Holder and Barack Obama’s minds than when they demagogue racial issues, that their rhetoric might inspire violence? When they smeared the entire Ferguson Police Department as racist, did they not realize it could lead to violence against the city’s (“racist”) police force? Because there were people who predicted this would happen the moment the DOJ’s bogus report, “Investigation of the Ferguson Police Department,”  came out.

(I see they took their video down. Yeah – I’d be embarrassed, too. What follows is a description of what you can no longer see):

Did you hear that taunt from that jackass “protester” after the officers were shot – one in the shoulder and the other in the face –  one of them screaming in pain:  “Acknowledgement 9 months ago would have kept that from happening!” Huh?

And how about that moron who took the video – laughing that her friend, Carl,  who is BBQing nearby (they appear to be in the parking lot across the street from the protest), is undeterred from his culinary activities.

Let us count the ways this video appalls: The false victim mentality of the protesters with their unearned moral superiority – encouraged by the racial grievance industry and political demagogues like our president and attorney general, the white guilt (idiot taunter who joined the fray in “solidarity” with the “oppressed” blacks) the apathy of the onlookers, the abject stupidity of all of them…. It’s all there – everything that is wrong in America today captured in one awful video.

Here, via Vocativ, is a video timeline of the events in Ferguson, last night.

There are no suspects yet in custody, but don’t hold your breath waiting for Holder to send 50 FBI agents to Ferguson to investigate the shooting of these cops.

By the way – It was only yesterday evening – mere hours before the shootings that MSNBC’s Big Ed urged the Ferguson police Dept. to lay down their weapons if they want to see ” real change.”

“I’ll give you this one: What about disarming the police?” Mr. Schultz asked panelist Michael Eric Dyson, according to a video provided by The Daily Caller. “What about just having them carry nightsticks and the authority to arrest?”

Mr. Schultz then mused that there are places around the world that employ unarmed patrol men, such as in the United Kingdom and New Zealand.

“I mean, it would take a brave person to do something like that,” he noted. “I know the right wing’s gonna think I’m crazy for saying that, but if you really want change, you have to institutionally show it to the people that you want to do this. And that would be part of a big social engineering project if Ferguson’s going to turn around. That’s how I see it.”

Brilliant timing.

Quack Like a Duck?: Megyn Kelly and Howard Kurtz Laugh at Melissa Harris Perry’s Holder Interview

So, during a recent interview on her MSNBC show,  Melissa Harris Perry asked outgoing Attorney General to “quack like a duck.”

Did you hear about this? I’m guessing no, unless you happened to catch Megyn Kelly and Howard Kurtz laughing about it on Fox.

And you really have to see it to believe it.

Toward the end of the interview, the obsequious Perry told Holder, “you know we call you ‘The Duck’ in our land…You have a placid and even way of presenting, but you are just working for justice underneath.” 

She asked plaintively, “would you quack for us?”

“That was the most cringe inducing thing I’ve seen since Glosell Green was in the bathtub with Fruitloops before interviewing the president!!!” Kurtz laughed as he unshielded his eyes. “I thought she was going to get down on one knee and proclaim her undying love for Eric Holder!”

Megyn then did a perfect impersonation of Melissa Harris Perry saying; “Would you quack for us..” eliciting guffaws from Kurtz. “I’ve never seen anything like that. What was she doing?!”

“How humiliating for her, “Kelly added. “Does she know how much she humiliated herself?”

On a more serious note.

The DOJ continues to be horribly corrupt and ridiculous under Holder.

The Daily Caller: House Oversight Subcommittee DESTROYS DOJ Attorney:

An angry House Oversight Subcommittee blasted Attorney General Eric Holder’s representative Wednesday for coming terribly unprepared to testify at the committee hearing.

The angry attorney then proceeded to take his rage out on a Daily Caller News Foundation reporter, but more on that later.

The recipient of the tongue lashing? Deputy Assistant Attorney General Kenneth Blanco. During questioning from House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Blanco admitted that he had not even read the Inspector General report that was a key part of the subcommittee’s meeting.

Six years in, members of this Regime don’t even pretend to give a shit. They are dug in, and will do whatever the hell they please. These oversight hearings are a pesky inconvenience they don’t even bother to prepare for.

 

Holder Justice Dept. Greenlighted Bergdahl Swap (Video)

Both Republicans and some Democrats have been saying since the Bergdahl/Taliban 5 swap was announced last May, that the Obama administration had violated the law by going over Congress’s heads. Talking heads have wondered what/who made the White House think it had the authority to make the deal without giving Congress the required thirty day notice.

Congress’s investigative arm, the GAO recently ruled that the Obama administration actually violated two different laws when it traded five Taliban commanders for the deserter Bowe Bergdahl without consulting Congress.

At a Senate Armed Services Committee Hearing, Thursday, it was finally revealed who made the terrible decision – it was the Holder Justice Department.

Via Fox News:

Speaking to the Senate Arms Services Committee, defense official Brian McKeon was questioned on what is still a sore spot for many members of Congress: that the administration went forward with the Taliban-Bergdahl swap without giving Congress the typically required 30-day notification.

Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., asked McKeon why Congress was not informed, “as per the statutes.”

McKeon said he understands the Department of Justice and the department’s general counsel “interpreted the president’s powers because of the security risks and safety of Sergeant Bergdahl necessitated proceeding without the 30-day notice.”

Greta Van Susteren had reporters from the Washington Post and the Washington Times on Thursday night’s On the Record to talk about the revelation.

As Holder might say, “pay no attention to the interesting sound bites below – they are simply not consistent with facts.

Another stellar accomplishment to add to Eric Holder’s amazing repertoire of failure.

 

Holder: I Cleaned Up Bush’s Politicized Justice Dept (Video)

9_162014_b1-funda8201_c0-0-2933-1710_s561x327

A favorite tactic of Obama and members of his Regime, is to run with the biggest, boldest lie possible, and dare anyone to question it. Eric Holder – easily the most corrupt Attorney General in our nation’s history –  fully embraced that tactic in spectacular fashion at a press conference Tuesday when he made the ludicrous claim that he cleaned up Bush’s Justice Dept. 

Yep. He actually said that.

Via The Washington Times: 

Attorney General Eric Holder pushed back against Republicans who said the Justice Department, under his leadership, had become little more than a political machine to push liberal causes — and said that he’s actually cleaned up all the politicking that had taken place under the former Bush administration.

In a press conference that began with his personal introduction — “For the record, I am Eric Holder” — the exiting agency head took shots at critics who suggested that nominee Loretta Lynch was his mirror image, and those who said the Justice Department was too political.

“It’s a little irresponsible for people on the hill to say that policy differences that we have with them … can be characterized as political,” Mr. Holder said, Mediaite reported. “There’s been no politicization of this Justice Department.”

He then went on to say that those who further such claims are wrong — that their jabs are “totally inconsistent with the facts,” Mr. Holder said in an ABC News video.

Mr. Holder also said with a bit of an bitter tone that former President George W. Bush’s Justice Department was the one that was truly political — and that he had been forced to clean it up when he took over as attorney general.

The unrepentant Holder also said that he was “proud of the historic things” his DOJ has done and expressed his hope that people wouldn’t pay attention to “interesting sound bites” that are “simply not consistent with facts.”

“I will leave this department in the way I found it when I came here back in 1976 — with high moral, with people who are dedicated to doing things only on the basis of the facts and the law,” he said in the ABC News video. “I’m proud of the historic things we have done. I hope the American people would not fall prey to interesting sound bites that are simply not consistent with facts.”

“The facts” have actually been quite consistent, as former DOJ Civil Rights Attorney J Christian Adams chronicled in his “Every Single One” series of articles at PJ Media about Holder’s hyper-political hiring practices.  (Read parts one, two, three, four, five,  six, and  seven.)

It is the hyper-politicization of the Justice Department that has led to the mind-blowing corruption and incompetence under Holder’s watch.

This is Eric Holder’s legacy and he is not happy about it.

Maybe it makes him uneasy to know that he will always be remembered as the most corrupt Attorney General in our nation’s history?

Too bad. He should have thought about that before he politicized his office and abandoned his oath to uphold our nation’s laws.

The DOJ’s Press flacks did a yeoman’s job cleaning up this man’s messes and keeping the media at bay –  but history is not going to judge Eric Holder well. I hope he’s beginning to feel that.

DOJ Will Not Charge Officer Wilson With Civil Rights Charges in Ferguson Shooting

George Soros spent $33 million of his own hard earned money, hoping to spur civil action – yet no civil action appears to be forthcoming.

So after many months of stoking the flames of racial division, Eric Holder’s DOJ is quietly preparing a legal memo recommending that no civil rights charges be brought against the white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., who shot and killed Michael Brown.

Nevermind that the last five months of protesting was over nothing – what was the point of all this talk about imposing police reforms on police departments about then? If a grand jury and now the most radical, race-obsessed DOJ in our nation’s history, found  that Officer Wilson did nothing wrong, what exactly needs to be reformed?

Via The New York Times: 

That would close the politically charged case in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The investigation by the F.B.I., which is complete, found no evidence to support civil rights charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, the officials said.

A broader civil rights investigation into allegations of discriminatory traffic stops and excessive force by the Ferguson Police Department remains open, however. That investigation could lead to significant changes at the department, which is overwhelmingly white despite serving a city that is mostly black.

The state authorities concluded their investigation into Mr. Brown’s death in November and similarly recommended no charges.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., has said that he plans to have it done before leaving office, probably in the next month or two if his successor is confirmed.

You realize of course, that if this uber-racialized DOJ couldn’t bring civil charges against Officer Wilson, there was never any kind of case to begin with.
