Holder is “worst AG since John Mitchell” (who was white)

Last week US Attorney General Eric Holder displayed astounding arrogance in being questioned about his partisan incompetence and belligerence during a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee.

Afterwards, as we reported here, he ran off to cry like a whining baby before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN). His immature actions further exemplified someone who is not only unqualified to hold the position of America’s top law enforcement official but of someone bereft, utterly devoid of a reputable character to take personal responsibility for his failures. Eric Holder showed himself to be a whining victim reflective of what liberal progressive policies have created in the black community — and it was embarrassing.

From a professional perspective we turn to an article written in the NY Post by John Fund and Hans von Spakovsky, “A veteran Justice Department lawyer says that Attorney General Eric Holder has politicized the department in a way he hadn’t seen before. In short, “Holder is the worst person to hold the position of attorney general since the disgraced John Mitchell.”

They bring out points the mindless lemmings at the NAN would never comprehend: Now in his sixth year as attorney general, Holder has increasingly tilted the department in an ideological direction. It’s one thing to emphasize President Obama’s legal priorities. It’s quite another to decide not to enforce certain federal laws — such as the ban on marijuana — or urge state attorney generals to refuse to defend local laws on same-sex marriage. Legal changes are achieved through legislation, not through a sudden whim not to enforce them. No other attorney general has acted in this manner. Holder clearly believes he has the inherent power to politicize his department.

Holder, and to an equal extent Obama, believe that they are above the law, and actually above scrutiny. Their fall back when questioned is always race as a means to hide their incompetence and radical actions in clear dismissal of the rule of law. This is exemplified in this response by Holder as House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte asked him last week whether he believed there were any limits to the administration’s prosecutorial discretion.“There is a vast amount of discretion that a president has — and more specifically that an attorney general has,” Holder responded.

This is the same Eric Holder who said before a gathering of States’ Attorneys General that they did not have to enforce laws in which they did not believe — so much for justice being non-partisan and blind. And we immediately saw the result in Pennsylvania where their State Attorney General threw out a corruption case because she felt it was racist, as we reported — yep, all Democrats.

I wonder how Sharpton and his zombie followers feel about Eric Holder and the Justice Department lawsuit against the State of Louisiana’s school voucher program? I can tell you what a US District Court says.

Just last week, a US District Court judge issued an order denying Justice’s request for veto power over school-choice scholarships awarded to students by the state of Louisiana. Justice had sued Louisiana last August seeking an injunction to stop it from distributing school vouchers to kids seeking to escape failing schools using the pretext of decades-old desegregation orders. Justice’s action is pure politics, driven by the fact that Democrats are beholden to teachers unions. Nice, coming from the first black attorney general taking orders from the first black president.

As Fund and von Spakovsky also articulate, Last week, Congress recommended that Holder’s office pursue a criminal investigation against Lois Lerner, the IRS official who admitted that conservative groups were targeted for added scrutiny. Lerner has repeatedly taken the Fifth even as she proclaims her innocence. But does anyone believe the attorney general will seriously investigate this?

Of course, when you call Holder out on his biases and selective enforcement, he cries racism — and I mean crying like a baby on a redeye flight.

But it was the confrontation between Rep Louis Gohmert (R-Tx) and Holder that has liberal progressives decrying racism. Consider the circumstances, which the mainstream media never does, “Gohmert, a Texas Republican and a former chief justice of the Texas Court of Appeals, had read a Fifth Circuit court opinion noting how Holder’s Justice Department had made available 9,600 summaries of transcripts of sensitive conversations to “attorneys for the terrorists” — of which Holder was once one.

Gohmert could not understand why Holder would provide documents to terrorists’ lawyers but not provide information sought by Congress. Gohmert added that he realized that “contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general,” referring to the fact that the House has voted to hold Holder in contempt for not turning over documents sought by Congress in its probe of Operation Fast and Furious, probably the most reckless law-enforcement operation Justice has ever instigated.

When liberals cry racism, sexism, misogyny, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia it’s all a ruse, a tactic, to make those confronting them self-censor because they know they are wrong. I commend my friend and former colleague Rep. Gohmert. I admonish you all not to fall prey to the insidious name calling, but press the attack. As Andrew Wilkow states, “we are right, they are wrong, end of story.”

This has been going on for years, any time you call out a democrat for their behaviour they call you the “R” word as to me it’s the most feared word in the United States. Since the ’60s people have feared being labeled a racist. I have been called a racist by many lefties and I just laugh in their face as my family is one huge melting pot or races and cultures. I don’t fear it, but stand up to them, asking them “is that all you got”? Democrats can only whine and cry, and run like thumb sucking… Read more »

I disagree with the qualifier, “since John Mitchell.” In my opinion, Holder is the worst Attorney General ever. My opinion has nothing to do with race and everything to do with content of character.

I agree, Holder is far worse but most Liberals don’t even know who Mitchell was. They are mostly an ignorant bunch.

Holder is somebody you had better be careful of. On the TPNN site somebody contacted me and told me about their attorney being called into the Bundy issue. I copied over one piece of what they had to say. And perhaps if Mr. West is reading this he check out the site titled “UPDATE: Obama BLM Retreats After Tense, Armed Standoff with Protesters. Paragraph Copied Over from a posting made: “I was surprised last night to receive a call from one of my attorneys. He dropped everything to fly down to Nevada and meet the family and assist their legal… Read more »

Sticks and stones…… etc etc….but words will NEVER hurt you.
There are many things to ‘fear’ and being called racist is the least of these!

Racism goes many ways:
Black on white
White on black
Black on light skinned blacks
Black on ‘uppity’ black to discredit them
Black on black conservatives..because it serves Obama’s purpose

He and barry protect each other, with that they feel with the power of the Senate they can do whatever they want to the US and it’s citizens. They have no respect for we the people of this nation or the Constitution.
If left to them they would form their own dictatorship. JMO

John Mitchell and Eric Holder have the same color heart–if there is one in either of them. That is the issue. They are lawless and have no concept or discipline enough to obey the law or recognize that this country needs to be under the Constitution that it is short-sighted and selfish to believe laws and rules can be made up as you go along in order to protect their friends, etc., or on a whim. The Bible the final authority while the Constitution helps guide people into being fair and Just by law.

Anything that John Mitchel or anyone from Nixon’s cabinet did wrong by yesterday’s standards would not raise an eyebrow by today’s lower bar.

As “marylou” posted,,,,”There are many things to ‘fear’ and being called racist is the least of these!” She is so correct. Sure, the first few times that I was called a racist it upset me BUT not any more. You see, I know I’m not a racist, my family knows I’m not a racist and my friends know also. For years I was a Corporate Trainer and I trained many classes with blacks in it and I know every single one of them also know I’m not a racist. So to those that don’t know me,,,,and they call me a… Read more »

If you want to defend Holder Rafael X, then form a logical argument and present your views. Otherwise you might come across as another moronic Liberal just trying to inject noise into the debate.
If your intent was to be a rather lame troll, then please carry on.

I do think that it is important to remember that it was BILL CLINTON that first foisted the radical, no good, scoundrel, Eric Holder upon us. He had to recess appoint him to the Deputy Attorney General job, because the Republican Senate had the good sense not to approve him. There began the lawlessness.

Whenever I’ve been called “racist” (only on the internet, BTW, never in real life), I think about all the great folks of various racial and ethnic origins that I worked with both at home station and deployed during my 20+ years in the United States Air Force…and I remember how we all worked as one big team, minus one or two “problem children”. But, then again, we were all there to do our jobs and make the mission happen because we were defending America. I can’t say the same for this POTUS or Attorney General. Go get ’em Allen West!

AG Holder makes Mitchell sound like a choirboy! All John Mitchell did was lie for Nixon & help with the cover up! So Holder told them to open fire, OMG, what a f**king idiot! This is why WE the PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE AMERICA BACK!!! I am so sick of hearing about the lawlessness of Barack Insane Obama & his merry henchmen Eric Holder & Harry Reid! I hope that this opens the eyes of all of the people in Nevada to vote the slime bucket out in 2016!

Holder is a worthless scumbag ideologue. When the heat gets turned up, him and Barry play the race card. They are the racists, and the enemies of this nation.

“Holder, and to an equal extent Obama, believe that they are above the law, and actually above scrutiny.”

They are above the law. They support the Gitmo terrorists, NBP scum and should be felons like Lerner. Who is holding them to account?

WHO!? It ain’t the press. It ain’t the House and it ain’t “We The People”, judging by the amount of outrage and ire aimed at DC.

Willing to bet Obama could win another election, even knowing the 22nd Amendment prohibits just that scenario.

I for one am glad to see that side continue pulling the race card, because the race card jumped the shark decades ago. It’s the new Godwin’s Law. And the more they use it, the more regular Americans get fed up with it, which only hurts the left. They may not realize it, but that’s what is happening. As a member of an ethnic minority and a child of immigrants, I can say that this country is the best place in the world when it comes to tolerance and diversity. We really have the least amount of baggage in that… Read more »

Everyone should stop going down bunny trails on White/Black and Democrat/Republican. Let’s put all that aside and reflect for a moment: There was Holder’s encouragement to Obama to announce the closure of the prison at Guantanamo Bay by January 2010 Missed that one Holder’s release of classified Justice Department memos on the CIA terrorist interrogation program and reopen criminal investigations into the conduct of CIA interrogators. Despite CIA directors (including Panetta) Holder’s special prosecutor he appointed came to the same conclusion as the career prosecutors under the Bush administration and found no criminal wrongdoing by the CIA officials involved Missed… Read more »

The worst AG since John Mitchell? I’ll go back even further – how about the worst AG since Harry Daugherty (who looked the other way during the various 1920s scandals that collectively became known as the Teapot Dome scandal, until he was finally underemoniously fired by President Coolidge)?
