I knew our country was in for a rough ride from the moment that I read a February 18, 2009 news report that Obama’s newly appointed Department of Justice, Eric Holder said this:
“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.”
He then proceeded to dismiss the case against the Black Panthers for voter intimidation causing a Justice Department attorney to resign in protest over orders from the Obama administration (Holder) to dismiss the case. J. Christian Adams, now a Virginia attorney, stated that, “There is a pervasive hostility within the civil rights division at the Justice Department toward these sorts of cases” and that there is an atmosphere of reverse racism in the Department and that voting rights cases against white victims would not be pursued.
Holder, during his three and a half years as DOJ, has made a mockery of the rule of law.
“He has stacked the Justice Department with politically motivated lawyers and enforced civil-rights laws in a racially biased fashion, for example dropping a solid voter-intimidation case against the New Black Panthers. He has asked a prosecutor to investigate CIA interrogators for alleged crimes that had already been investigated. He has tried to move Khalid Sheikh Mohammed to New York for a civilian trial. He has claimed voter-ID laws are tantamount to Jim Crow.” (Editors of National Review On Line).
And…………………………….. it is further reported by Renew America that Holder has argued
“that senior DOJ officials knew nothing about gunwalking tactics used during or about Operation Fast and Furious in general until after Border Agent Brian Terry was killed in December 2010. The problem is, multiple memos about Fast and Furious were addressed directly to Holder as early as July 2010 and wiretap applications show Holder’s Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer knew about the extensive details of Fast and Furious and approved gunwalking six times starting in March 2010. Not to mention, Holder’s now Chief of Staff Gary Grindler’s handwriting is all over an official ATF Fast and Furious Powerpoint presentation given in Phoenix March 2010.”
The following videos highlight the abuse of power, the lies (under oath) and the contempt for the laws of our country by the Attorney General of the United States. If we understand, as the Founders believed, that the rule of law is “the lifeblood of the American social order and basic civil liberties”, then we must hold everyone from the President on down to that very same rule of law or endure the erosion of our liberties.
