Here is video of Attorney General Eric Holder back in 1995 making it clear what his attitude is toward guns and gun owners. He said we need to “brainwash people to think about guns in a vastly different way.” That “vastly different way” is that Holder thinks gun owners should be thought of the way “smokers” are, “who cower outside buildings and don’t really want to admit it.”
Eric Holder, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Diane Feinstein just don’t get it. American Citizens have a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT to keep and bear arms. It is not something to be ashamed of. It is part of the fabric of America that has made America the greatest nation on earth. But, of course, this is part of that “radical transformation of America” Obama promised in 2008. You notice he did not run, though, on destroying the 2nd Amendment. He was very careful not to say anything about gun control until AFTER the 2012 Election.
Here is raw video of the vote by the House of Representatives this afternoon to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress for his refusal to provide documents in the Fast & Furious scandal.
Here is GOP Rep. Dan Burton this afternoon making the case on the House Floor for holding Obama Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. The House is voting on whether to hold Eric Holder in contempt for refusing to provide evidence in the Fast & Furious scandal.
Here is a video report by Fox News’ Bret Baier that gives a good summary of the “Fast & Furious” Scandal. Baier also reports the news that the House Oversight Committee voted today to recommend that Attorney General Eric Holder be held in Contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over documents in the scandal. It is likely to be taken up by the full House next week.
Here is a video report from Fox News on the news that President Barack Obama has decided to assert Executive Privilege to keep documents secret related to the “Fast & Furious” Scandal. Attorney General Eric Holder asked for the action to keep the documents secret – documents the House Oversight Committee has demanded by turned over.
This action would indicate there is evidence in those documents that the Obama White House believes is more damaging than the higher profile they just gave this case by going to the extraordinary lengths of asserting Executive Privilege.
In a contentious Senate Hearing today, Texas GOP Sen. John Cornyn blasted Attorney General Eric Holder today for his unwillingness to cooperate in the Congressional investigation into the “Fast & Furious” Gunwalking Scandal and for his new unwillingness to appoint an Independent Counsel to investigate National Security leaks by someone in the Barack Obama Administration. Instead, Holder wants to conduct the investigation from within his own Justice Department – with counselors who report directly to him.
Cornyn called that a clear “conflict of interest,” and called on Holder to resign.
CBS News is reporting that the House Oversight Committee will vote next week on whether to hold U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over evidence requested in the “Fast & Furious” Gunwalking scandal:
CBS NEWS: CBS News has learned the House Oversight Committee will vote next week on whether to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. It’s the fourth time in 30 years that Congress has launched a contempt action against an executive branch member.
This time, the dispute stems from Holder failing to turn over documents subpoenaed on October 12, 2011 in the Fast and Furious “gunwalking” investigation.
The Justice Department has maintained it has cooperated fully with the congressional investigation, turning over tens of thousands of documents and having Holder testify to Congress on the topic at least eight times.
However, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., says the Justice Department has refused to turn over tens of thousands of pages of documents. Those include materials created after Feb. 4, 2011, when the Justice Department wrote a letter to Congress saying no gunwalking had occurred. The Justice Department later retracted the denial. . . .

Here is video of Mitt Romney today speaking to the National Rifle Association Convention in St. Louis where he praised the NRA for calling for the resignation or firing of Obama Attorney General Eric Holder.

Attorney General Eric Holder lashes out at a reporter for the Daily Caller when asked about the calls for his resignation over the “Fast and Furious” scandal. Holder accused the Daily Caller of being behind the story and told the reporter “you guys need to stop this.”
52 members of Congress, three presidential candidates and two sitting governors have called for Holder’s resignation.
Here is video of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announcing charges against two men arrested for plotting to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States on American soil. Further, Holder explained that the assassination plot was “conceived, sponsored, and directed from Iran” – by “elements of the Iranian Government.” Holder said the United States is committed to holding the Iranian Government “accountable” for their actions. No word yet on what that means.
The assassination was reportedly planned to take place in a U.S. restaurant, and the conspirators were to be paid $1.5 Million. The plot also reportedly included a Mexican Drug Cartel.
Here is audio of CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson telling Laura Ingraham that she was yelled and screamed at by a Department of Justice official, and by Associate White House Communications Director Eric Shultz for her blockbuster story exposing Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder for not telling the truth to Congress about when he knew about the disastrous “Fast and Furious” gun-walking program into Mexico. Attkisson exposed DOJ documents yesterday that prove Holder knew about the program since at least July 2010. Eric Holder told Congress in May 2011 he only learned about the program a few weeks earlier.
Here is a devastating story for Barack Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder from CBS News.
The report by Sharyl Atkisson shows that Holder did not tell the truth to Congress in May of this year when he said he had heard of the disastrous “Fast and Furious” illegal gun-running program only a few weeks earlier. But Department of Justice documents, the report says, show that Holder received regular briefings on the operation going all the way back to July 5, 2010!
Holder is now reportedly saying he “misunderstood” the question from Congress!
Below is a Fox News breaking news report on the evidence that Attorney General Eric Holder did not tell the truth in his testimony before Congress:
David Beamer, the father of United 93 hero Todd Beamer, reacts to Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement that the 9/11 Co-Conspirators will face a military tribunal.
Beamer said he was “shocked” by Attorney General Holder’s comments attacking Congress for placing restrictions on where the civilian trials could take place. Beamer said, “I am thankful that there are three branches of government. Because the last thing I want to see, or even contemplate, is KSM returning to New York City in a civilian trial where he would have an opportunity to continue his jihad by condemning America and lashing out in the well of a courtroom and reopening those wounds that he inflicted on 9/11.”
Here is video of Attorney General Eric Holder taking nearly eight minutes to say that the 9/11 Co-Conspirators will be tried in Military Tribunals at Guantanamo Bay rather than in civilian trials – as he had previously decreed back in 2009.
If Holder had just been willing to say, “We were wrong,” he could have made the announcement in about 30 seconds. Instead, he arrogantly spent most of the announcement making the case for why they should really be tried in Federal Court rather than in Military Tribunals. Holder blamed Congress for putting restrictions on where the civilian trials could take place – never mentioning the groundswell of opposition from average citizens that put pressure on Congress to impose those restrictions.
This announcement by Holder is a classic example of spin and arrogance on the part of the Obama Administration. They blew it, and everyone knows it – they just won’t admit it.
