This may get veddy tasty.
Yup, should be a fun day.
NEWS FLASH: Affirmative Action AG along with Affirmative Action President, both full of crap.
UPDATE: Concept of accountability does not apply to them based on the color of their skin
This is a very corupt regime in DC. Never have I seen cover-up going all the way to the WH – executive privilege in F&F papers, give me a break. If Holder claimed that, it means BHO knew about F&F and the whole chain lied to Congress.
Someone should be going to jail but I can see MSM and DIMs covering for the perps.
It’s unbelievable. Watch CSPAN live and see what we’ve got in Congress.
HEY HOLDER & OBLOWME , do you understand these words????
IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! IMPEACH! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
Oh, my. This Friday document dump ought to be legendary. If the Supreme Court hasn’t released judgement they will likely take the opportunity to release some really crazy stuff in anticipation of the Obamacare decision being the biggest distraction ever.
Drip, drip …………
We cannot convict Holder until Obama is out. That way he cannot get a pardon from Obama.
CALLING IT NOW, START THE CLOCK:
Within the next 48 hours, watch for a major shooting or some other “man-caused disaster” somewhere in the U.S. that will occupy most news coverage for the next week.
A pity we don’t have many in congress to press this forward as was done with Watergate.
A special prosecuter is the best bet, not holding my breath.
I guess repeating the big lie repeatedly did not catch on.
It did with the left, they believe it but they are the only ones.

Yup, all set for a fun day!
The reason for F&F was to disarm Americans…They should be arrested for TREASON…
Why would the “most transparent administration in history” claim executive privilege to prevent access to information?
I’m going to ask my boys on MSNBC.
Is this a private party?
If you are watching CSPAN now, imagine Charles Barron, Dem psycho from NY, in the House. If you think the Dems we see on CSPAN today are foul despicable Obama loyalists, we would be back in the trees with a character like Charles Barron.
Man, I sure hope the GOP is recording these proceedings and is willing to use the footage against every last Democrat that is up for election this year and is defending this crap. Make it know early they intend to do such and you will see Obama’s support evaporate like dew in the morning.
Holder trying to retract as many lies as possible before going to trial.
Drudge has linked a banner headline to WZ…worlds are colliding!
It would appear we have indeed got the government we deserve. Fool me once…
With all the exercise his legs are getting from backpedaling, Holder has a real shot at joining the Olympic cycling team.
how the hell did these people get here….they are by far way worse than Nixon could ever be….no one died during Watergate. Way more to this story than we know….can’t wait for the story to unfold….people should be outraged!
Arrest them all!!!
The government is a mafia!
YES, LET THE PARTY BEGIN.
I guess when 18 months of coverup doesn’t work, Executive Privilege gets pulled out of the hat. Seemingly, Obama and Holder have backed themselves into a corner. The bigger questions, though, is this: What exactly is it that they are so desperately trying to hide?
the worm turns. Oblamer is guilty as hell right along with Holder
Issa should tell Holder (and the media) that you can’t “retract” anything.
Sen. Chuck Grassley:
“-How can the President assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement?
-How can the President exert executive privilege over documents he’s supposedly never seen?…”
Good questions Senator.
“We cannot convict Holder until Obama is out. That way he cannot get a pardon from Obama.”
Oh, please. Like Romney won’t pardon him, tooo? Don’t you realize these guys all scratch each other’s backs? Do you think it’s a coincidence every president, Reagan onward, has advanced gobalization, outsourcing, illegal immigration, etc.? They’re on the same time, part of an exclusive club and you’re not a member.
Oh, crap, now we will have to listen to 24/7 news reports on Sarah Palin’s bad hair day! The old’ “news media” has to keep us informed on the really important things, you know.
Maybe it is time for a fourth branch of government. One whose function is to only investigate and prosecute law breaking by the other three branches. The Executive Branch, especially, no longer can be trusted or forced to follow the law and the Constitution.
I’ll bring the graham crackas, the marshmallows and the Hershey bars (the big ones, fck nanny squatch).
Once you start to lie, one begets another, and another, and another. Pretty soon it is be impossible to keep them all straight.
This should get very interesting. Executive Privilege brought down Nixon.
Chicago politics at its best brought to you by the white house.
This is the real shocker, Miss Shelia is unavailable for comment? Now I know they are going down the toilet.
Stands to reason, the former would have access to paperwork…yes? This is pure cover-up.
The doctrine of Executive Privilege dates to Thomas Jefferson (Arron Burr). It is a capstone in the doctrine of separation of powers between the co-equal branches of government. It is to be used sparingly.
However, since when does the US government sell guns to people it knows is going to use them in criminal enterprises? Overlooking us arming every thug and dictator which seems sympathetic to what a select few decide is our national interest, the entire plan is mind-numbing crazily stupid.
I can not imagine a scenario when this is not the business of Congress. Those documents have got to be doozies because someone had to have said rather strongly this is a really bad idea – and, if not, who is running the assylum.
And, please remember the concept originated under Bush, but was expanded under Obama. This is not limited to a single adminsitration as many would have you believe. This is downright idiocy which may permeate the DOJ – including the majority of its employees who are very diverse in political allegiance (by design).
Wouldn’t you have questioned authority to implement such a bad idea? Somebody had to have. What happened to them? Where was the internal dissent? Second and third guessing? Such dissent would have made a ripple thereby drawing more people into it.
Where are our whistleblowers when we need them?
Big mistake. Every president who’s tried this has gotten deeper into trouble. This is a downward spiral for Obama and Holder. Obama has been bad for the country, but he is a CATASTROPHE for the Left.
If the American “sheeple” ever truly woke up and realized what a horrnedous, Marxist, treasonous scum of a president we have as well as all the other scum he surrounds himself with and the massive amounts of crime they are committing, we could have a trial that would make the Nuremberg trials look like a Sunday picnic!!!
They should all be convicted and hanged for their treason…we have to cleanse this country of Socialism and Marxism. We can not continue along this path of high treason without a total collapse into civil war.
This didn’t start w/ obama though…this goes back many decades. Joseph McCarthy was always right all along. These bastards have always been able to infiltrate our government from the lowest to the highest levels, and America is being eaten alive by the cancer of Marxism from the inside out.
Read the 45 Goals of Communism in America here and you’ll see it’s a check-list that has basically been completed and the final act of a tyrannical plot to destroy America is about to take place.
Wake people up and there may still be a small chance to take America back and erradicate our great country of these vile, cancerous, anti-American traitors!
I’m not sure but by doing this, doesn’t he implicate himself? If he didn’t read the docs how could he do this? In the end, I believe it did go all the way to the top.
I miss the old days. When people we elected were more interested in doing the best they could for the country instead of doing what they can to protect Obama. At this point, it’s very clear that Obama is inept at this job. Let’s just impeach him and get it done. We need to take the Senate back as well. Then we need to tell the Dems when we start fixing the mess they created that we are now driving the bus so sit down and stop talking. It’s what the people want!
A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly.
But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.
He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
~ Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman Statesman, philosopher and orator (42 B.C)
Affirmative Action on a national scale is a prescription for incompetence, corruption and failure. Just like everywhere else it is tried (imposed).
Cannot hit Mukasey too hard. He was the one that saved BHO from the wire tap they had on the phone for the former governor of Illinois. Blago was going to receive a call from? that morning when the Feds pulled the wiretap. Feds used the excuse that a ” crime was being committed” which is the whole idea of a wiretap. Feds then arrested a sitting governor without a warrant– anyone who knows the Feds — knows that almost always get a warrant. Who was coming on that phone that morning? Monitors know–
I simply wish the “Greatest Generation” that went and saved Europe, came home and lost their own country should have done more to limit the growth of government because we look today like what they went to fight. This country looks nothing like what they came home too.
Something smells very rotten in Denmark. The president is issuing executive priveledge over documents he supposedly knew nothing about? What kind of crap is this? The main issue getting swept over here is the murder of Brian Terry due to the program. One of our own guys. Working for us. Protecting us. And they treat his death like it was nothing. Inept, incompetent, rotten to the core.
“Never have I seen cover-up going all the way to the WH –”
WilECoyote: You just gave your age away………….can you say, “Watergate?”
holder and o-hole are guilty of felony murder. They are directly complicit in the murder of a U.S. border guard.
This is the President and AG who started the process to supply the weapons that were used against our own citizens, ultimately as a ruse to undermine the 2nd Amendment.
Criminal and shameful.
Obama and Holder need to go to jail. But I highly doubt our congress has the guts to press this. This is one of the fundamental problems in our government. They refuse to hold up the constitution and the rule of law. They have developed one system for them and one for the rest of us. We vote out one bunch only to get another that work the same way. Unless these so-called leaders know there are consequences for their actions, this is going to become the way business is done all the time. It does not good to write to senators (especially in California) because it will fall on deaf ears. As guilty as Obama and Holder are, I maintain our congress and senate are just as guilty for not doing anything.
Yeah, nothing from the Republicans as usual. After the immigration edict, I made up my mind that I would not give another penny to ANY Republican candidate. I’m tired of pissing my money away on those bums who don’t seem to want to win this coming election, the biggest in history.
I’m also not even going to bother to vote along party lines. I’m voting AGAINST any incumbent and I don’t care what party it is. We need to clean our congress and start over again with ALL NEW. We need term limits and drastic cuts in salaries and bennies.
John Boehner is a disgrace. We should have gotten rid of this ballsless piece of crap a long time ago. I sincerely believe Republicans don’t care who wins.
Politics is now only about how rich one can get in office. The higher they get the more money they can steal. Republicans are in cahoots with Democrats on this and that’s why they don’t care who wins.
I done with all this BS.
Thanks for the fantastic quote! The regime is destroying the country one day at a time.
Nixon was a choirboy compared to this group. All they did was break into a hotel, stupid I know . But this group of felons got people killed through tying to dismiss the 2nd amendment.
This is what happens when an incompetent, fascist fraud becomes the president of the most powerful nation on earth. He is done as president. Normally, he’d be impeached. That can’t be done here. So now, all of our enemies around the world are going to take full advantage of the fact that the fraud has lost all support. We are going to see situations escalate quickly in Egypt, Iran, Syria, Yemen and maybe even France.
Reminds me of an old Cher song: “Gipsys, Tramps and Thieves.”
But they’re our thieves for now….
Time to roll out those alien bodies from Roswell…
If you voted for Barry Obama to prove you were not a racist, vote for someone else (anyone) to prove you are not an idiot!
All the kings of the nations lie in state, each in his own tomb.
I really hate to say this but this is what you get when black democrats are in charge. Look at any black democart controlled city or country they are all in the toliet.
The smarmy weasel “retracts” his head back down the hole.
(no offense zip)
What a clown/ Bozo the clown
All the kings horses and all the kings men couldn’t put Obama together again. Sooner or later the real truth will surface and I’m sure Obama will be a part of it. What is odd is that there aren’t any people in the AG’s office wanting to blow the whistle on this, but, I guess, why, would we expect anyone in this administration have a consceince.
The first day of Summer. This is going to be fun. Sit back and watch Holder and Obama cook under the heat. The long hot summer has begun. If F&F started under Bush, and since Obama blames Bush for everything, why not just release the documents? The MSM ignored F&F (except Cheryl Atkinson from CBS), and they continue to call it political in nature. Watch the media protect Holder and Obama. The documents are devastating, that is why they are being withheld. Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive. Happy Summer. The race card is coming.
Obama and Holder are criminals. Hard to believe that people actually elected Obama. Not hard to believe that Obama would appoint a criminal like Holder.
Richard Nixon said: “Let me say this about that, and let me be perfectly clear. I’m not a crook.”
Obama says:”Now let’s be clear”
And the Potomac River water that flows through Washington DC is still muddy.
“Plenty of others have taken note of this habit, but they usually dismiss it as a standard time-buying device, like Bill Clinton’s “make no mistake” or Richard Nixon’s eerily similar “let me make one thing perfectly clear.” But Obama’s declarations of clarity are far more than a little presidential throat-clearing.”
“When Obama is being “clear” these days, he is saying something quite different than when he was being clear in 2007 and 2008. His shifting use of the phrase traces the arc of Obama’s time on the national stage, from campaign sensation to a president beset with challenges that rhetoric alone cannot overcome. In a presidency in which everything is murkier than Obama could have imagined, the “let me be clear” preface has become a signal that what follows will be anything but. “
What is Obama hiding. I guess this scandal does go all the way to the top. John Gotti didn’t have a thing on this administration. Remember, vote on 11/06/2012 if you can get to the polls ahead of all the illegals voting.
Obama and Holder are both murdering crooks!
It’s clearly tough for Obama and holder, having lived their whole lives sheltered and held unaccountable to anything because they got a “bye” based on Affirmative Action and handouts, and now to have their first moments of accountability be exposed over the past 3 years as the POTUS and AG of the greatest nation on earth, in front of all to see. It’s tough to watch boys struggling to act like men, especially when their failure puts all of our lives and livelihoods at stake. The issue is not that we picked black men to do these jobs; the issue is that we picked black men with no ability to do them right. So sad and predicted.
Interesting now I can see the tru reasoning behind obama’s immigration executive fiat… They all new that this administration has tens of thousands of Mexican dead in their closet and they needed a boost in the polls before it came all crashing down….
And plus when a few years ago the POTUS went to Mexico and blamed Americans addiction to drugs for the money and arms flowing into Mexico he very well knew THAT IT WAS HIM SENDING WEAPONS THERE!!!
Even worse THIS ADMINISTRATION WOULD HAVE BEEN OK WITH THOUSANDS OF MEXICAN MEN WOMEN AND CHILDREN BEING SLAUGHTERED IF it weren’t for an innocent American man being killed…
If you are Hispanic you should really think twice who this president really is and who you are in his eyes…
@ gorgo: CALLING IT NOW, START THE CLOCK: Within the next 48 hours, watch for a major shooting or some other “man-caused disaster” somewhere in the U.S. that will occupy most news coverage for the next week.
Hell, I give it 24 hours.
So much for hope, change, and transparency. In the toilet: employment, economy, foreign policy, Constitution, health care, protection of our borders, credit rating, race relations, and hopefully Obummer and Holder and all the other completely crooked, lying liberals.
Boy, are you so right about this not being the country the WW2 generation came home to after saving it from a fate worse than death.

The doctrine of Executive Privilege dates to Thomas Jefferson
I believe George Washington initiated this doctrine in 1796. OC, ICBW…
As I understand it, Executive Privilege pertains to a limited set of things the President was personally involved in.
Two likely possibilities for asserting EP at this point are:
1). The President had full knowledge of F&F.
2). The President is attempting to extend the EP doctrine to the entire Executive branch.
“Diplomatic Immunity”…What movie did I hear those words?
In the REAL WORLD, that’s called lying under oath.
If I’m ever charged with a crime, I’ll “retract” anything that I get caught lying about.
That’ll work, won’t it?
For someone in a profession where accurate language is one of the most important skills needed to do the job well, this Holder fella sure has to retract a lot.
Were the Clinton paper shredders left in the White House???
Wonder how this will affect the Hispanic vote? Barry and Holder gave weapons to Mexican drug cartels who routinely behead dozens of people and law enforcement. Makes a lot of sense to vote for people who don’t care if you get killed with the guns you give them.
At this point I think I’d believe a flying saucer landing on the White House lawn with Lady Ga Ga greeting them as space ambassadress for Earth as real before I’d believe anything these degenerates in government tell us. I guess I shouldn’t give them any ideas ….
Let’s compare: Watergate was an attempted cover up of an unsuccessful breaking and entering which was not likely known by the president until after the fact. F & F is a cover up of a program likely known to the president that resulted in the murders of 100′s of people. Hmmm. Maybe like the fact that nearly 20 times more blacks are murdered by blacks than blacks murdered by white but the death of a black teenager by a white hispanic??? is much worse? And of course all the whites murdered by blacks don’t realy count either? Or the fact that the instance of pedophile teachers is far greater than blacks murdered by whites is okay too? At least to the MSM.
Looks to be a good day for the Truth. Everyone can see not that Obama and Holder are going to stonewall. This administration is so CORRUPT.
Nov can’t come soon enough for me.
Fresh from WHI/Ulsterman:
“Second, something just now breaking out is Holder walked back a Blame Bush statement he gave to Congress just last week. Fast and Furious was nothing like anything the Bush boys did. Bush era program was much smaller and had the full cooperation of the Mexican authorities. Holder lied when he attempted to link the two and now he is already trying to correct that testimony from one week ago. This kind of sloppy mistake is a clear sign he’s in big trouble and really feeling the heat. It’s also a signal to party leaders and the White House he is falling apart on this.”

Sheila Jackson Lee was unavailable for comment because the Houston Zoo returned her to the primate cage where she belongs.
holder lied. Terry died.
The whole bunch in Washington D.C. seem to be bickering about telling or not telling the truth. The place is run like a soap opera. Nothing is going to change and nobody will do anything about it.
