Holder’s Chutzpah

Pages: 1 2

Attorney General Eric Holder recently told a group of black clergymen that the right to vote was being threatened by people who are seeking to block access to the ballot box by blacks and other minorities.

This is truly world-class chutzpah, by an Attorney General who stopped attorneys in his own Department of Justice from completing the prosecution of black thugs who stationed themselves outside a Philadelphia voting site to harass and intimidate white voters.

This may have seemed like a small episode to some at the time, but it was only the proverbial tip of the iceberg. The U.S. Attorney who was prosecuting that case — J. Christian Adams — resigned from the Department of Justice in protest, and wrote a book about a whole array of similar race-based decisions on voting rights by Eric Holder and his subordinates at the Department of Justice.

The book is titled “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.” It names names, dates and places around the country where the Department of Justice stopped its own attorneys from pursuing cases of voter fraud and intimidation, when it was blacks who were accused of these crimes.

If Mr. Adams is lying, he has taken a huge risk in citing individuals by name and quoting them directly. Yet, despite the fact that most of those he accuses are lawyers, apparently no one has sued him. Moreover, Adams has also testified under oath before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, on the racial double standard at the Department of Justice, when it comes to voting rights.

What Attorney General Holder has been complaining loudly about, and launching federal lawsuits about, are states that require photo identification to vote. Holder calls this blocking minority “access” to the voting booths.

Since millions of black Americans — like millions of white Americans — are confronted with demands for photo identification at airports, banks and innumerable other institutions, it is a little much to claim that requiring the same thing to vote is denying the right to vote.

But Holder’s chutzpah is up to the task.

    Just another reason Holder should be impeached from the Department of Injustice!!

    • PhillipGaley

      "should be impeached"?

      "Ken" is preaching crap, again: By requiring ID, our dirty rotten stinking US government is trying to discourage food stamps, too. The foodstamp program should be just like the old days in the 60s and 70s, same day registration, and we could ride the rails, from state to state, register, pick up your foodstamps and be able to live like you wanted, . . . same day registration for foodstamps and voting, is the way t'go, . . .

      I volunteer at a food pantry, and the people have to present 3 pieces: picture ID and a piece of mail showing current address for the person picking up the groceries, and for each family member represented, an SS card—it's a rip-off. As I say, the whole thing ought to be wide-open; this is America. They should stop all this border check and ID stuff for whatever. If they want ID, my Oregon medical marijuana card should be good enough, . . .

        You are a moronic giant douche.

      • SAP

        That’s good you support some kind of ID for something. Your marijuana card gives you right to access weed in that state, and the voter ID gives you right to vote. That’s that simple. Holder doesn’t agree with you and he should be impeached, that’s that simple.

    I buy items from the US quite regularly via Ebay.

    At the end of the shipping process the goods are cleared by Custom with a VAT and import charge. They are not released until the charge is paid. So it's easier and quicker to skip the bureaucratic layer at this stage to print out the tracking information which tells me its at the local depot and collect personally.

    In all cases bar none in addition to the print out, some form of ID is required.

    Sounds fine to me after all I wouldn't want my purchase to end up in the wrong hands. It's a double check, the first being the printed tracking information with its unique number and in theory only available to me.

    So if such precautions are deemed necessary in determining ownership of goods why not when determining the ownership of ones own name and identity?

    Are goods of a higher status than a human being?

    I don't like the need to show ID for many facets of American life. But for voting it is a fair requirement. Many of Eric Holder's people – the coloreds – don't carry ID because it makes it harder for them to lie about their identity to law enforcement and harder to avoid warrants. Holder is a disgrace to America and has been since he got his affirmative action job. Even if he weren't a racist – which he is – he should still be jailed for his "fast & furious" arms trafficking.

      Excuse me,Mr. Kelley,but the year is 2012,not 1962. The term "coloreds" went out of style a long time ago.

    The proper answer to any dp/msm complaints about any GOP AG is to laugh in their face and remind them of holder and reno before him. It's a little late to impeach him, but Romney needs to have a full housecleaning of the whole Executive Branch as soon as he's sworn in.

    • Johncdavidson

      You're right. This time none of them should be let off the hook, nor should any monuments be built to honor their treasonist acts.

      Exactly right. Bush blundered badly by leaving the FedGov stacked to the rafters w/ leftover Clintonistas. Typical Rove/RINO 'compassionate conservatism'.

    Quite honestly, the blacks and white trash from the liberal base should all be band from voting and period! Obama, Holder, Pelosi are the means, the real threat is the base, always has, and will. They are my enemy's, they are the most terrible threat to this Nations security, our Statehood's, the Constitution and our economy! Call me a racist and you can kiss my white Redneck peckerwood ass! I'm sick of it, tired and sick of it, and oh the hell yes, I am sick and tired of this same old run of the mill entitlement junky mentality that has even put to ruin the Conservative party. With the RNC and Elitist GOP shoving the Liberal Romney down our throats and with the support of a watered down Conservative base, we will be in the last of our death throes when he steps foot into office…Welcome to the Church Of Latter Day Saints y'all, we're going to be some back peddling fools fer sure! Pamphlets anyone?

    • Looking4Sanity

      For someone who holds "the blacks and white trash from the liberal base" (your words…not mine) in such low esteem, you seem to be as much of a Constitutional threat as they are for suggesting that they "should all be band from voting and period!".

      By the way, do you know what a monumentally ignorant "Redneck peckerwood ass!" you sound like for writing something as illiterate as "band from voting and period! "?

      I can understand your concern with our presumptive Republican nominee, but take your ignorant, West Virginia snake-handling religious bigotry and stick it where the sun doesn't shine. Unless you want 4 more years of Obama, you'd better get on board with the rest of us.

      There are worse things than a Mormon in the White House to worry about. If you doubt that…take a look at what's there right now!

        Let me make something very clear, They are a threat to us, any group who would vote someone into office they nothing about in my strictest of opinions should not be allowed to vote. They have helped to install one of the worse threats to this Nation than any President in our History, that makes them my enemy, that makes them a threat. To see it in any other fashion is foolishness. It's there before before…And yes, I most certainly have a low evaluation of them as such! And what I wrote here on this thread, is of the truth.

            What you have done here is to prove to the world that you are an idiot and a liar who lets his emotions rule him like a prepubescent school girl.

        "I Will Be a Second Mohammed"
        by Paul T. Trask © May 20, 2002 [http://www.help4rlds.com/mohammed.htm]

        In the heat of the Missouri “Mormon War” of 1838, Joseph Smith made the following claim,

        “I will be to this generation a second Mohammed, whose motto in treating for peace was ‘the Alcoran [Koran] or the Sword.’ So shall it eventually be with us—‘Joseph Smith or the Sword!’ ”[1]

          If you don't believe in this guy, why do you put so much stock in his false prophesy?And just for the record…I want to hear you say “I'd rather have four more years of Obama than take a chance on Romney”.Sounds pretty stupid when you look at it in black and white, doesn't it?

        We Christians are having our lives, faith, and the lost of our livelihood being ripped out from underneath us on a daily bases and you expect me to be compliant to it all, a love me hug me hold me kinda guy, don't you dare patronize me with your foolishness, I've been voting for 32 years and have never seen such damning threats as these Liberal entitlement junky's,"white and blacks" are to us.
        You bet I'm a Christian and I am fighting mad about this taking over of our lives… We have a right to fight back. I assume your a Liberal? Or maybe a Romulus kinda of guy, even his policies are Liberal. and my going to school? I'm not being vile you knuckle head, it's call truthfulness, something you have no desire to practice..

    MEXICAN OFFICIALS and a Mexican Presidential candidate are demanding the extradition of all U.S. officials involved in FAST AND FURIOUS and that includes Holder, and ultimately, Barack Obama.

    In a little advertised case, in the small town of Columbus, New Mexico, about eleven officials have been indicted and imprisoned for GUN RUNNING INTO MEXICO and this includes the POLICE CHIEF. GOOGLE IT and you will see the connections to F & F. These officials immediately pled guilty and are serving time HERE IN THE U.S. because they didn't want to be jailed in Mexico.

    Since Obama and Holder pander to their ILLEGAL AMIGOS coming here and STEALING OUR JOBS, RAPING OUR CHILDREN, dealing heroin and addicting our children, and all the other crimes they get away with, WE SHOULD HAND OVER HOLDER AND OBAMA FOR PROSECUTION. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW! This is why Holder will not resign due to F & F since he knows he will soon be living in Mexico. "Extradition to Mexico?" Didn't we invade Panama to get Noriega? Mexican's are being terrorized by a U.S. policy which was the goal of Holder and Obama only to go after the GUN LOBBY, and to aid in the UN small arms ban, and mostly to attack the U.S. Constitution!!!

    If the rumor mill is true with what this article states, http://www.exposeobama.com/2012/05/14/boehner-is-… Eric Holder and his boss Barack Hussein Obama know they can get away with murder, literally…

    When are the so called Conservative Republicans, who are elected to represent their constituents, going to grow a backbone? IF Obama wins another 4 years and the spineless Republicans allow Holder to commit more unlawful dealings, the United States will lose whatever rights we have left.

    Why isn't congress forcing Holder and Obama to be accountable for the death of 2 Border Agents and thousands of innocent civilians in Mexico? Because they are afraid of being called RACIST????????????? We are electing children and not grown men and women to represent us, afraid of being called a name…..

      "When are the so called Conservative Republicans, who are elected to represent their constituents, going to grow a backbone? IF Obama wins another 4 years and the spineless Republicans allow Holder to commit more unlawful dealings, the United States will lose whatever rights we have left. "

      Just like with all the fiscal legislation that the House has passed and the Senate refuses to take up, I suspect the House knows that any impeachment charges against Holder or the President would be obstructed by the Senate, even if that obstruction was illegal. Harry Reid has illegally refused to produce a budget for 3 years now. The House may be waiting until the Senate has more Republicans. That would be my guess…they are just biding their time…

        So, because impeachment charges might be obstructed by the Senate, we should forget about them?
        Why hasn't John Boehner stuck Holder with a contempt of Congress citation? Boehner doesn't need the Senate for that, does he?

        • http://imataxpayertoo.wordpress.com kathy

          Well, I never said that and I didn't say I was in agreement with it…just that I suspect that is what is going on. It seems as if we would hear more from the newly elected tea party candidates. Of course there is one Florida congressman Allen West who is very vocal, and I say, good for him. But he is being inundated with furious criticism from The Left. We have to support those who speak up.

            We are living in a time of unprecedented (in my opinion) corruption in our elected leadership, at least in my lifetime. This administration daily (perhaps hourly) devises new ways of controlling the American electorate and bringing us into their globalist communist utopia that makes the mind reel with unbelief. I believe this is exactly why the founders wanted the top office of the land to be held by someone with greater credentials and allegiance than simply a citizen. The Natural Born designation was to insure the allegiance of the person holding the office. But our country doesn't even know what Natural Born means anymore, furthermore, there is a certain portion of the electorate who doesn't even care. They care nothing about the heritage of our nation, the Constitution and what it means or even our laws. They only care about remaking it into their communist globalist image and plundering the wealth that is only able to be created by a free people in a free market society. November 2012 can't come soon enough.

    Holder is a disgrace to both his office and the human race. Par for the course for the Obama Administration.

      He embodies the same type of racist approach as the National Socialists in Germany last century.

    Why this administration doesn't listen to this man is a very telling fact about their plans for the future of this country. And, it isn't too inspiring for all of us who enjoy expressing ourselves freely.

  • kasandra

    And, of course, now he's trying to prevent Florida from removing illegal aliens from its voter rolls. Yes, I guess that would discriminate against people who are here illegally and have no right to vote in our elections. Isn't it clear to everyone by now (except our "news media") that this administration is actually trying to foster voter fraud? And mightn't one ask why they would do that? Maybe 60 Minutes will do a segment. (Now stop laughing.)

    A small correction: The actor that went to Holder's district polling place never said he was Eric Holder. If he had, he could have been prosecuted for voter fraud. He merely asked if they 'had an Eric Holder" in their records. After the correct address was given, they proceeded to give him the ballot – which he never accepted.
