Targeting Eric Holder, Darrell Issa buys into gun nut delusions

Jun 22, 2012 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.latimes.com

The brouhaha over Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. and the contempt of Congress charge brought by U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Vista) are providing new evidence that the lunatics are running the Republican asylum.

Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, would have us believe President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege in the dispute -- “an eleventh-hour stunt,” he called it on Fox News -- is part of a White House cover up of something much more sinister.

hiding behind executive privilege is the equivelent of 'taking the 5th', you are going to decline to answer because the answer just might incriminate you.
So what in F&F just might incriminate bams and holder in all the 'missing' documents. Bams must have called all the watergate paper shredders and tape editors in for ideas.

Holder demanding that Issa promise not to take any further action before Holder gave a "presentation" of what is in the requested paperwork is a bit odd and suggests a cover up.
.
Seems the L.A. Times didn't want to talk about that.
.
Then again, they quoted Nancy Pelosi so we must keep our expectation of the L.A. Times modest.

So let's see, one guy got killed and we're wasting how much government money on the investigation? 7,600 documents submitted? What did we learn from the 9-11 failure with 3,000 dead? Was anyone convicted? What about the illegal wars based on lies like WMD's and promises that the oil would pay for them? What about the bank fraud that caused the collapse of our economy?

This looks like a witch hunt I remember that cost us $40 million to force Clinton to admit to a bj.

Who is controling the US credit card????? Our country deserves a D- credit rating.

Vote out all the spendthrifts!

We know Holder lied and is withholding info but at this dismal point in Obama's reign did we really expect fair minded, adult, principled actions from Holder? Naw. As always, with the Obama people, hating on Issa for doing his job is standard operating procedure.
We can only hope that the Romney admin will be more ADULT and less divisive than The Obama has been.

geez project much ? 2 federal employees (bam and holders employees) and countless hundreds possibly thousands of mexican citizens killed by these weapons and bams and holder should get a pass for lying and hiding all the paperwork ? Neither of these crooks work 'for the people', they exhibit emperor and top-cop syndrome, i'll do wha I want and you'll like it.

I knew I could count on Mr Bill to find some BS liberal slant on the Obama Justice Department's fast and furious operation.

Holders original statement was that DOJ did not know about the operation and of course neither did Obama. I love the way Obama uses Executive Privilege for something he and Holder were not supposed to know about. Well they did not know about it until documents surfaced that indicated they know about it.

*Operation Wide Receiver is the administration’s desperate excuse/distraction from their gunrunning activities; it was a Bush-era program that was supposedly identical to Operation Fast & Furious… except that attempts were made to keep track of the guns being sold (Operation Fast & Furious did not), OWR was conducted with the awareness and cooperation of the Mexican government (OF&F was not), and – contra the earnest attempts of the Obama administration – the program ended two years before Bush left office. So, in other words, it wasn’t particularly identical to Operation Fast & Furious at all.

About a month after the killing of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry (December 2010), ATF officials in Arizona held a press conference announcing the end of Fast and Furious. Fast forward to May 2011, Eric Holder tried to convince Congress that he had just heard of Fast and Furious a few weeks before his testimony. That was later proven false. And now chief propagandist Jay Carney says that Eric Holder should be credited for being the one to end the Fast and Furious operation? Amazing.

Fast and Furious scandal became an Obama issue the moment he decided to use executive privilege to shield documents from being released to the House Oversight Committee. Executive privilege is supposed to protect communication between Obama and his top advisors. So that begs the question … just what aspects of the F&F program that Obama knew nothing about what he discussing with his people in the Justice Department?

The entire HUSSEIN OBAMA administration is corrupt and evil.

***** REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER *****

When you think of muslim HUSSEIN OBAMA, think of:

-9/11

-The Fort Hood TX massacre by muslim HASAN.
This was the bloodiest massacre in U.S. history committed by one person on U.S. soil.

-The 20+ MILLION illegal muslims in this country who want to take over.
ALL are on welfare AND they get to vote for democRATS.

-The 30+ ILLEGAL Mexicans - all of whom are on welfare AND they get to vote for democRATS.

- Over 30 MILLION fat, lazy, and useless home-grown welfare recipients

-Illegal Mexicans and muslims commit over 4,000 murders of U.S. citizens every year.

Read the multi-million best-selling fact-based book by the Honorable Doctor MICHAEL SAVAGE,
"TRICKLE DOWN TYRANNY"

Hussein Obama is a tyrant, a dictator,
a corrupt islamofascist African warlord.

Several private and PUBLIC schools are adopting this book for mandatory reading.
Students are required to submit book reports.

Adolf Hitler was an evil genius.
HUSSEIN OBAMA is just plain evil.

now that the msm has been shamed into actually covering the story that they've avoided for 18 months, did you really think it WASN'T going to take a "left" turn?
i'm actually kind of surprised bill didn't include pelosi's TOTALLY ASININE remarks about it.

it's really a shame there doesn't appear to be ANY reputible journalists with the balls to go after this debacle...

Issa's one of the worst, most rotten, most partisan and most foolish of the reTHUGlican congresscritters out there. A thought never enters his head unless it's vetted first by the ReTHUGlican national committee, Faux News, and Grover Norquist.

Anyone who doesn't think this is a partisan witch-hunt isn't playing with a full deck, or is a reTHUGlican partisan. But I repeat myself....:)

The LA Times hysterical protestations of Rep.Issa demanding proper papers from the obama/holder administration provides fresh evidence of the lunatics that have taken over that newspaper.The LA Times would have us believe that the intentions of the obama/holder dynamic dual are as pure white as a brand new snow fall.These lunatics on the left pay no attention to the family of the killed border patrol agent who are demanding answers from obama/holder.To the left the family doesn*t matter.

Both are rights and privileges granted by our Constitution, dipshit, and in this case it protects documents concerning an in ternal investigation from a partisan fishing expedition.

WTF is "bams?" Are you on crack?

The paperwork reflects the results of a sensitive internal investigation not completed, genius. He doesn't want some partisn asshat like Issa spilling it all over the news, naturally.

Balls, you know nothing like most Righties. And like them, you couldn't care less about "principled actions" (LOL), you want partisan attacks and a "President Romney" you're not ever going to see in office.

Obama and Holder weren't running Fast and Furious, you idiot, it was a local operation which wasn't properly overseen. Natrually, you don't really care about the victim or his family, you care about trashing a Dem administration and "the left."

Moron.
