Eric Holder has stepped down as Attorney General. I believe he is the only cabinet member to be held in Contempt of Congress for his role in Operation Fast and Furious. He also dropped the investigation into the New Black Panthers, declined to prosecute any of the people responsible for the financial crisis, led monitoring of the media including James Rosen, continued to persecute medical marijuana clinics and helped preside over one of the more … Read more

Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday that state attorneys general are not required to defend state laws they believe to be discriminatory. Specifically, he said those who think state bans on gay marriage are unconstitutional are not obligated to defend them. Comparing today’s gay rights fight to the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s, Holder said he would have challenged discriminatory laws on the books during the time
The one good thing I figured Barack Obama would do as President was go after the shysters in the mortgage industry. Surely a Democrat as liberal as Obama would make sure that those who aided and abetted mortgage fraud would be punished, right? And last year — coincidentally, right before the election — they announced that they had brought 530 cases representing over 73,000 fraudulent mortgages and a billion in lost home value. It was … Read more
What else can we possibly talk about this week besides the Zimmerman trial? I’m sure you’re sick of it, but I’m starting to wonder if Zimmerman isn’t shaping up to be the controversial John Brown character of our day.
Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry confirmed the worst of what the South feared about the intentions of the North and the threat of a slave uprising. Although there were many causes for the Civil War, Brown … Read more

In a mounting confrontation with congressional Republicans, President Barack Obama invoked executive privilege Wednesday to withhold documents a House committee is seeking. The panel neared a vote on citing Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt.
Comments rapidly grew more heated. A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner suggested administration officials had lied earlier or were now “bending the law,” while Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings said the committee’s GOP chairman “had no interest” in
As of tonight, I am on the other side of the world. Actually, most people would say I blog like someone on from a completely different world. But in this case, it’s literally true: I’m back in Australia. As a result of preparations and travel, I’ve missed the biggest news stories of the week. So I’ll go through them quickly in a weekend roundup form to hopefully start a few (well-reasoned) fights.

Late last Friday in a dump they hoped everyone would miss, the DOJ released a series of documents related to operation “Fast & Furious” that all but make it a given Eric Holder lied to congress when he first told them the whopper that he had not heard about the operation until a few weeks before he showed up to testify. He then compounded that lie by claiming it might be weeks instead of months. … Read more
Now that Holder is feeling the fire, and then, despite the LSM and the WH, in what I am sure in a coordinated effort, playing like this story isn’t big when it makes Watergate look tame, non of us should be surprised that he has resorted to the left’s most favorite attack to silence or impugn the character of the people that are pissing them off: the race card!

That’s basically what the democrats seem to want. That’s from guy that pretends he had no clue about operation “Fast & Furious” and actually deserves to be hauled into court to defend the criminal activities he and his people have been trying … Read more
Ask yourself: how would the media have reported a Friday night dump by the Bush Administration’s DOJ basically admitting they lied to congress during an investigation involving an operation that was for lack of better words a criminal action, on foreign soil, without telling the other nation in question about the various operations that were arming some of the most brutal criminal gangs involved in a shooting war that was killing hundreds if not thousands, … Read more
