Post Most Racial President & Attorney General
Barrack Hussein Obama stated “There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.”. This led many to call him a “post racial President”. He has failed to live up to that hype. He could not help himself from showing his true racial colors in the Travon Martin case. He criticized police in the arrest of Professor Henry Louis Gates. He relished the opportunity to call America racists in the Ferguson incident, even apologizing for it in a United Nations speech. But his crowning achievement demonstrating his belief that America is a racist nation was the appointment of Eric Holder as Attorney General.
Eric Holder had a huge arsenal at his disposal to implement his prejudicial beliefs. One of his earliest abuses of power was his support of the Black Panther voter intimidation. On Election Day, 2008, a couple of members of the New Black Panther Party intimidated white voters with racial slurs and threats. Former civil rights attorney and campaign aide to the late Robert F. Kennedy, Bartle Bull, observed the Panthers’ antics and described them as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” he had ever seen. A lawsuit ensued however when the defendants failed to answer the lawsuit, a federal court in Philadelphia entered a default judgment against them. The Holder Justice Department responded by abruptly dropping the charges against the Panthers and two of the defendants. The third defendant was simply barred from displaying a weapon near a Philadelphia polling place for the next three years. This early action set the tone for the most divisive and racially activist Attorney Generals in our history.
He tipped his racist hand in February 2009 when he said during a speech marking Black History Month that the U.S. was ‘essentially a nation of cowards’ on race-relations. He was given a chance to take that comment back in January 2014 but said that he would not take that back.
He also seemed to, like his boss President Obama, have an affinity for Islamic terrorists. In May of 2009 Holder stunned the legal community and many Americans by deciding to try a terrorist who bombed two U.S. embassies killing 12 Americans and 212 others in civilian courts instead of in a military tribunal at the Guantánamo Bay. Even worse, he decided to hold the trial of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed—the chief planner of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001—and four co-conspirators in the federal courthouse in New York rather than in a military commission at Guantánamo Bay. He later reversed this decision under pressure that threatened his job and his legacy.
In November 2009 an Islamist terrorist who was an Army doctor conducted a jihad resulting in a mass shooting at Fort Hood in Texas. Holder’s DOJ classified the casualties as the result of ‘workplace violence’ instead of opening a terrorism case.
Holder was plagued with scandals. He was the most anti-Constitution AG we ever had. President Obama is no fan of the rule of law or the Constitution either. Holder rode shotgun for Obama protecting the President as he assaulted the Constitution. He is the only presidential cabinet member ever to be held in Contempt of Congress. Holder’s legacy reveals his contempt of the law.
- AP Surveillance: The Justice Department secretly obtained two months of the telephone records of reporters and editors for The Associated Press (AP). President and CEO Gary Pruitt described the DOJ’s actions as a “massive and unprecedented intrusion” into how news organizations gather the news.
- April 2010 – Holder personally OK’ed search warrants demanding the secret collection of emails belonging to Fox News Channel reporter James Rosen. The DOJ wanted to track the source of a national security leak without Rosen being aware he was being surveilled.
- Operation Fast and Furious was an operation whereby the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) began selling weapons to small-time gun buyers knowing that they would make their way to major weapons traffickers in Mexico. This was a plot to whip up support for gun control. He tipped his hand on his philosophy on guns in 1995 when he told the Woman’s National Democratic Club that the DOJ would soon launch a public campaign to ‘really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way … in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes. Tragically, the botched operation has had serious consequences. U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot with assault rifles sold as part of Operation Fast and Furious. Additionally, 57 Fast and Furious weapons have been connected to at least an additional 11 violent crimes in the U.S.” Holder lied under oath during a congressional hearing saying that he hadn’t heard about the Fast & Furious program until one month earlier. A memo later surfaced from 2010 showing that Holder had been briefed on the program
- Holder sent a memo to U.S. attorneys Wednesday urging them not to use sentencing enhancements known as “851” tools to gain leverage in plea negotiations with defendants — in essence, allowing defendants to avoid trial in return for prison time.
- Holder’s DOJ Threatens Free Speech. The American Muslim Advisory Council (AMAC) of Tennessee sponsored an event called “Public Disclosure in a Diverse Society.” The main speakers for the event were DOJ official Bill Killian, a U.S. attorney and FBI Special Agent Kenneth Moore. Killian addressed how social media posts and documents deemed inflammatory toward Muslims can be considered a violation of civil rights laws. This is a blatant attempt at subverting First Amendment rights, but the DOJ’s Killian is espousing views that apparently have the support of President Obama who has said: ”The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.”
- Holder Purges use of term “radical Islam”: At the request of Islamist groups who voiced their concerns regarding the use of the term “radical Islam” in FBI training materials, Holder, along with FBI director Robert Mueller, issued an order requiring all such language to be removed from the FBI training content.
- Holder attacks Arizona Law: On April 23, 2010, Arizona’s GOP governor, Jan Brewer, signed into law a bill authorizing state police to check with federal authorities on the immigration status of any individuals they stop for a legitimate reason. Holder vehemently spoke out against the bill and filed a lawsuit, challenging the state’s immigration policy. This was done on the grounds that the “invalid” law interferes with federal immigration responsibilities and “must be struck down.” The lawsuit urged the U.S. District Court in Arizona to “preliminarily and permanently” prohibit the state from enforcing the law, but later on down the road, the law was overturned by the Supreme Court.
- Opposition to Second Amendment Rights: In 2008, Eric Holder claimed that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual’s right to keep and bear arms, but only applied to government militias.
- IRS Scandal: The IRS systematically targeted conservative groups using confidential conservative donor information improperly obtained by the IRS. Congress launched an investigation which resulted in stonewalling. In March 2014 Holder declined Republicans’ demands to appoint an independent Special Prosecutor. Instead he endorsed the work of a DOJ lawyer who was an Obama campaign donor.
- Benghazi: Four Americans were killed and Obama officials lied about the cause of the attack, blaming it on a video. He refuses to appoint an independent special prosecutor effectively protecting Obama and Hillary Clinton and preventing Congress and America from getting the truth about the attack.
- Opposition to Voter ID Laws: Eric Holder has consistently opposed efforts to pass voter ID laws, which are designed to minimize voter fraud. He uses the false racist narrative to defend these efforts. Holder has challenged about two dozen state laws and executive orders from more than a dozen states that were designed to curb voter fraud in 2012.
- Discriminatory Hiring Practices: On August 8, 2011 documents were released by the DOJ, subsequent to a court battle, which revealed the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division had been engaging in politicized hiring in the career civil service ranks. According to PJ Media, the politicized hiring practices of Holder’s DOJ are nearly unprecedented in scope.
- Ferguson, Missouri shooting: Both President Obama and Eric Holder raced to podiums to suggest that the shooting of Michael Brown was racially driven. Holder dispatched no fewer than 50 FBI agents and forensic specialists to the scene of the crime in Ferguson in a witch hunt to frame the Ferguson police force as racists.
Eric Holder announced his decision to step down on September 25, 2014. The pressure from the IRS and Fast & Furious scandals is heating up. That coupled with the potential loss of the Senate in November hastened his exit. He and the President have set back race relations with their racial prejudice.
