More Tyranny from Obama and Obama ‘Justice’ Department (and Another Open Admission of Treason by Obama)

Remember what fighting for ‘Truth, Justice & the American Way’ USED to mean??

Welcome to the 2013 version, courtesy of President Obama:


“LOOK – up in the sky!
It’s a BIRD!
…It’s a PLANE!!” …
“NO, it’s…(***ka-BOOOOOM!!!!!***)

EXCLUSIVE: Justice Department memo reveals legal case for drone strikes on Americans

A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” — even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S.

Ignore that this is connected to terrorism for a moment.  Pretend this is about organized crime.  Let’s look at this issue in this new light and see if it still reads the same to you:

“What Difference Does it Make” (VIDEO by Bill Whittle)

Bill Whittle covers some of the past week’s events, placing them into much-needed context:

Hillary testifyingHillary testifying before Congress, when she gave her now-infamous “What difference does it make” retort?

John Kerry,  who is (*shudder*) replacing her as Secretary of State?

Whittle nails them both, and more, with deadly accuracy.

Honestly, I should probably start playing the old Carly Simon hit “Nobody Does it Better” whenever I include a clip from this guy:

Eric H. Holder, will you Please Go Now!

With apologies to Dr. Seuss…..

Holder has debased the office of Attorney General.

Remember, Holder was the one responsible for the Marc Rich pardons, and it was his Justice Department that dropped the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party back in 2009. Holder also had the bright idea of trying terrorists in criminal court, an idea which thankfully was blown up by Lindsey Graham, of all people. But that isn’t why he needs to go (at least, that’s not all of it). No, his refusal to adequately explain his knowledge and involvement in Operation ‘Fast and Furious’ is why Holder is guilty of at LEAST contempt, and why it’s long past time for him to leave.

First, some background: this post from us yesterday, and this updated post from ABCnews.com.

And this brief synopsis from an Ed Morrissey column back in early December, 2011:

“The ATF sent hundreds, if not thousands, of weapons across the U.S.-Mexico border in 2009 and 2010, ostensibly to track them as they passed from straw buyers in the U.S. to drug cartels in Mexico. However, the ATF didn’t actually track the weapons, which have now begun appearing in crime scenes north of the border. The weapons have been used in hundreds of murders in Mexico and at least one in the U.S., in which Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was killed just over a year ago.

Of course, that wasn’t the reason people were upset, according to Holder. C’mon, you can guess the reason….

Holder told The New York Times Charlie Savage that the intense scrutiny of himself and Barack Obama relating to Fast and Furious came from a few “extreme” bloggers and conservative media figures whose criticisms were “both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

Of course!! It’s so obvious! I know that I always agree completely with all Caucasian Democrats and Liberals, and only have a problem with the ones that are more ….darkly hued.

Mr. Holder, you’d be an equal disgrace if you were white, pink, or plaid. Feel better?

Pabulum like this aside, Texas Senator John Cornyn summed up, in 4 short minutes, the litany of offenses of which Holder is guilty. You probably have seen little of it, if any, so be sure to watch it all.

Media blackout on Holder’s Fast and Furious testimony

The investigation is not fast, but the investigators are understandably becoming furious.

From AOSHQ and the Daily Caller the other day:

Attorney General Eric Holder again today would not answer who the  highest-ranking Obama administration official was that had knowledge of  Operation Fast and Furious and the gunwalking tactics it employed before Border  Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered.

Instead, when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith pressed him  directly during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday, Holder dodged  giving a response.

“Mr. Attorney General, who is the highest ranking official in this  administration that knew that these tactics were being used?” Smith asked of  Holder at the beginning of a Thursday hearing. “And I’m talking about, knew  the tactics were being used before the death of Agent Brian Terry on December  15, 2010.”

Holder attempted to answer a question that wasn’t asked. “Well we know that  the operation began in the field offices in Arizona,” Holder said. “Both in the  US Attorney’s office and in the ATF office there. The inspector general is  in the process of examining –”

Smith then cut off Holder and asked his question again: “To your knowledge,  who was the highest-ranking official in the administration who knew about the  tactics?”

Holder again deflected. “At this point I can say that it started in Arizona and I’m not at all certain who beyond that can be said to have been involved with  regard to the use — now there was knowledge of it, but the use of the tactics,” he responded again.

Unedited Politics had the video:

This is mind-boggling. The Attorney General of the United States is saying, in essence: “I’m only the AG. How am I supposed to know this stuff…?”.

John Hayward, the erstwhile Doctor Zero of HotAir, wrote about this over the weekend:

The Attorney General still maintains he and his top deputies didn’t know anything, can’t remember anything, and have no intention of complying with lawful subpoenas from Congress.  Holder acknowledges that he’s only turned over 7,600 of the 140,000 Fast and Furious documents he’s sitting on, and that’s about as good as it’s going to get.

The Administration apparently thinks we are fools. And the media, ever complicit, are side-stepping the subject to an absurd degree, reporting only when necessary and burying the leads, basically giving lip service to the story. It’s another media blackout, being conducted in alarming lockstep.

More from John Hayward:

Asked when the White House was made aware of the gun walking tactics employed by Operation Fast and Furious, Holder essentially said his staffers briefed the White House but didn’t brief him, so he doesn’t know what anybody said, or when they said it.  He allegedly still hasn’t found the time to gather “specifics” about the case, even though he easily made the time to conduct a political seminar for black preachers recently.  When Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) demanded to know who authorized Fast and Furious, Holder referred him to the eternally “in progress” internal Justice Department investigation, which is apparently being conducted by Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster

This has been said before, but just imagine how this would be portrayed if it were a Republican in the White House, and we were dealing with National Security. Would the press think THAT was an actual story worth doing more than the rock-bottom minimum reporting? Actually, we don’t have to imagine: we’ve seen it happen already.

Issa, Smith and Gohmert are finally losing their patience with Holder, and one could hardly blame ’em. These videos show an AG and an Administration that is determined to delay, prevaricate, and stone-wall this investigation indefinitely until forced to do otherwise. Based on the dearth of reporting on this, it’s gonna be up to us to spread the word.

Sadly, it’s not as if we can count on Eric Holder to pursue actual justice:
