Eric Holder is hardly in a position to give anyone fast and furious advice.
Eric Holder is hardly in a position to give anyone fast and furious advice.
SESSIONS: On March 2, 2017, Democrats accused Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions of misleading Congress during his confirmation hearing. While admitting that the statement Sessions made to Congress was not actually false, the MSM still devoted more than 1 hour and 12 minutes to the subject.
HOLDER: On June 28, 2012, Obama’s then-Attorney General Eric Holder became the first Cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress for withholding documents from the House investigation into the Obama administration’s Fast and Furious scandal. The MSM yawned.
3/7 UPDATE: I just corrected the title on this graphic. It originally said, “Media covers Attorney Generals” which I realized today was wrong on two counts. “Media” is plural, so it’s “they cover”, not “it covers.” Also the correct plural for Attorney General in American English is “Attorneys General.” Sorry ’bout that. I actually knew those things yesterday. Dunno where my brain got off to OR WHY BOB DIDN’T CATCH IT! lol
The original plan was to call this post Obama Gate, Tower Gate, Deep State Gate. My dear friend CtH, ever vigilant, did her post as I enjoyed my morning nap.
What is disgusting is that Obama has never gone away. He is staying in Washington, running the covert acts of sedition the left thinks are going to bring down the Trump administration. The faithful whores in the media are in full vigor, advancing every unsubstantiated, demonstrably false assertion from the left while at the same time screaming when Trump claims his lines were tapped before the election to PROVE IT!!
Here’s the List: More Than a Dozen Proven Victims of Obama’s Many Wiretaps
It is not unfounded that former President Obama would wire tap President Trump during the election process. This is because he has done this before. Here is a list of individuals who were wire tapped by the Obama Administration.
Obama is no stranger to wire tapping. His administration tapped phones and computers of friends and foe alike.
Ask James Rosen and Angela Merkel about Obama Spying
Clapper may think that the Obama administration is incapable of such an act, the same Obama administration that used the IRS in a way Richard Nixon only dreamed of in targeting the Tea Party movement. Such an act would indeed make Watergate look like, well, a third-rate burglary. Clapper forgets as well how the NSA and the Obama administration spied on world leaders, starting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel:
JAMES CLAPPER IS A PROVEN LIAR
Edward Snowden later released classified documents that proved Clapper lied to Congress.
On Sunday Clapper denied reports that the Obama administration was spying on Donald Trump.
Chris Coons walkback: “I have no hard evidence of collusion” between Trump world and Russians
Contradicts prior suggestion of possibly incriminating transcripts
DOOGIE HOWSER WENT BALD AND GOT A SENATOR JOB
As if proof were needed at the time of an accusation for a media that has put Trump on trial for the last 6-8 months based on innuendo about Trump campaign ties to Russia. As pointed out repeatedly, there is zero proof in the public record of such media and Democrat accusations, and no proof was demanded by the media.
In fact, Democratic Senator Chris Coons recently suggested there were incriminating transcripts of calls involving Trump or his associates:
Yet on Fox News Sunday this morning, Coons admitted (as Sen. Tom Cotton also stated on the show) that there is no hard evidence of collusion:
DeepStateGate: Trump Ends the Wiretapping Innuendo Game by Dealing Himself In
The White House is placing a substantial bet on what Congress will uncover. Don’t expect those cards to be dealt swiftly because such investigations take time. The Obama administration was highly adept at stalling investigations until the Democratic media could pronounce them “old news” and ignore the outcome.
The Trump administration can distinguish itself by cooperating energetically with this one and helping it move forward quickly. Rest assured that no matter how long it takes, the media will never consider it “old news” as long as there remains any chance for anyone connected with the Trump 2016 campaign to get in trouble over contacts with the Russians.
Obama Admin Source Confirms Wiretapping Was Conducted
A source inside the Obama administration acknowledged that wiretapping was conducted to spy on Trump during the 2016 Presidential election.
“Democrat Kathy Arue: “My sources from the White House told me, she thinks it’s all true. She said, um there were concerns that Trump-and this is from the White House and the administration inside the White House…there were concerns that Trump and his surrogates may have been colluding with the Russians and a possible bargaining chip to influence the election, therefore a wiretap was conducted.”
That’s a load of crap.
The Obama administration knew there were no Trump ties to Russia that is just the excuse they are using now to try to cover for their illegal activity.
Holder Admits to Coup Led By Obama
Media Hypocrisy: Jeff Sessions and Russia vs. Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress
We spend a lot of our time correcting misreporting, slopping reporting, and reporting presented as objective when it clearly is not.
Increasingly, it’s apparent the attempt to oust newly-minted Attorney General Sessions was a good, old-fashioned media hit job. Who was behind it, we don’t know. These things seldom happen on their own, especially in the age of a completely incurious press.
The good folks over at the Media Research Center studied media coverage of the Sessions incident and compared it with the amount of coverage previous Attorney General Eric Holder received when he was in contempt of Congress. The results? Well, they’re pretty much exactly what you’d expect them to be, sadly.
Seven times more coverage was devoted to Sessions.
New Acting AG Will Enforce Trump Immigration Order
REMEMBER SALLY YATES? SHE WAS THE ASSISTANT AG WHO WAS FIRED FOR COUNTERMANDING TRUMP’S IMMIGRATION ORDER.
HAD SHE NOT BEEN FIRED, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN INVESTIGATING THE BULLSHIT CLAIMS SESSIONS COLLUDED WITH THE RUSSKIES. DO YOU THINK THAT WAS NOT OBAMA’S PLAN?
New Acting AG Will Enforce Trump Immigration Order
Report: Trump furious that Sessions recused himself
SESSIONS IS THE KIND OF HONORABLE MAN WHO WOULD BE STAMPEDED BY THE MOB LUSTING FOR MORE SCALPS.
TRUMP SAYS,’SCREW YOU!’
Sessions said he made his decision after consulting with officials at the Justice Department, who recommended he should no longer participate in the probe.
Washington Post reporter Robert Costa tweeted Saturday morning that President Trump left the White House “in a fury” on Friday, “fuming about [Jeff] Sessions’s recusal and telling aides that Sessions shouldn’t have recused himself,” also calling the reports of his meeting “bull.”
ABC News also reported that Trump went “ballistic,” on Friday, also over the Sessions news
Hours before the Sessions press conference, Trump threw his full support behind his embattled attorney general, who was a loyal campaign surrogate, and insisted he should not recuse himself from the inquiry.
Trump officials have repeatedly dismissed the Sessions accusations as partisan attacks against the president in the aftermath of his speech.
Pence Goes On The WARPATH After The AP Release His Wife’s Email Address
In a low blow move that wouldn’t surprise anyone that was remotely plugged into the political environment, the utterly one-sided media lap dogs of the Democrats pulled off a move that cements the reason why Americans are disgusted with the institution that should be working for the people instead of a political party.
That email address was sent out Friday, contained within the 29 pages of old AOL emails that were released to the public by the Indianapolis Star. They themselves obtained the emails through an open information request.
The Vice President was furious when he found out… And he and his wife found out the ugly way when emails began to pour into her account, filled with malicious messages
DEMOCRATS DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THE COUNTRY…REVENGE, HARASS, DESTROY BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, LEGAL OR NOT
Trump wiretap charge flummoxes law enforcement officials as FBI head reportedly asks DOJ to reject claim
WHY IS THIS JACKASS STILL HERE?
“How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” he tweeted.
Trump’s charge also left many in the White House and Justice Department confused and scrambling over the weekend to find any kind of factual backup for the president’s accusations.
Also Sunday, the New York Times reported that FBI Director James Comey asked the Justice Department to publicly reject Trump’s assertion. According to the Times, Comey argued that Trump’s claim falsely implied that the FBI had broken the law. The Justice Department had not issued any such statement as of Sunday evening.
#ObamaGate Is a Lot More than a Hashtag
Forget the usual smokescreen of hyper-partisan blather from Chuck Schumer on “Meet the Press” or the myriad calls for Trump’s head from the usual press suspects and consider the situation: Congressional committees, the FBI, not to mention numerous avid media organizations and who knows who else (NSA? CIA? ASPCA?) have been investigating putative Trump-Russia collusion for some time now and come up with… exactly nothing.
Are they likely to come up with something of significance at this point? Almost certainly not.
Leaks and unnamed sources fuel media’s plan to destroy Trump
To judge by their scattershot approach, the conspirators are fishing for a bombshell. The fallback goal is to inflict death by a thousand cuts.
Already they’ve gotten one scalp and part of another. Gen. Mike Flynn is gone, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions is wounded. Each made a mistake that obscured a larger truth: Somebody in the government has been spying on Trump’s team and giving top secret information to anti-Trump media outlets.
Flashback: First FISA Request on Trump Tower Came After Clinton and AG Lynch Met Privately on Tarmac
Was it coincidence or an indication of things to come?
Snakes on a Plane.
On June 27th of 2016, Bill Clinton met secretly with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch at the Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.
A week later FBI Director James Comey laid out in a press conference the many scandalous activities taken by Hillary Clinton while she was President Obama’s Secretary of State and then he said the famous words:
“Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
We now know that the meeting between Bill Clinton and Attorney General Lynch occurred at about the same time that the Obama administration filed a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers.
No evidence is found — but the wiretaps continued, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes.
The Obama administration was monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.
“Nothing that the Trump administration has done with or to the news media approaches in seriousness and nature the conduct of the Obama Administration towards the press,” James Rosen said Saturday during an interview on Fox News.
Trump has been complaining about dishonest and shoddy reporting and how damaging it is to our nation.
But Obama targeted a specific news outlet, again and again, because he didn’t like the stories they chose to cover.
Even worse, Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, ordered Fox reporter James Rosen’s movements tracked, his phone records seized, and told Google to not notify Rosen that the government was monitoring his email.
There are days when it is difficult in the extreme to find the motivation to park in front of this machine and begin my daily sojourn into the belly of the political beast. There was a time a couple years ago when there was a lot of discussion and back and forth on this blog but I suspect most have gotten bored or just lost interest and moved on. Many days it is only through a sense of indebtedness to what this has meant to me keeps me doing it.
As you all are well aware, Obama gave his farewell ‘F*ck you, America’ speech last night before 20,000 adoring, brain-dead acolytes at McCormack Center. They hung on every lie that spilled from his purple lips. He even mustered up a few tears when he talked about his baby mama and his two jaded offspring. I could fill an entire post with articles about this exercise in sophistry, but I seriously doubt you care, and frankly, I don’t either.
On the remote chance you’re interested, here are some of the headlines at Brent Bozell’s site, Newsbusters:
HERE’S A STORY YOU WON’T SEE IN THE MSM:
Obama may get rejected from golf club over Israel policies
HE WAS DUE TO BECOME A MEMBER OF AN EXCLUSIVE GOLF CLUB, AVOIDING THE $80,000 INITIATION FEE AND ALMOST $10,000/YEAR IN DUES. MOST OF THE MEMBERS ARE JEWISH AND NOT AT ALL THRILLED WITH HIM KNIFING ISRAEL IN THE BACK AT THE U.N. THAT’S THE READER’S DIGEST VERSION.

“Women’s March on Washington” devolves into racial identity politics fight
Which brings us to The Women’s March on Washington, scheduled for the day after Trump’s inauguration. It appears that the concept was grassroots, but it’s now a big liberal activist group feeding frenzy. Here’s a partial list:
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called Monday’s “records request” an effort to “expose how California state legislators are wasting tax dollars to take care of another corrupt politician – Eric Holder – under the guise of resisting the rule of law on immigration and other matters.”
[CtH: I seriously wish I had more money, so I could throw some at Judicial Watch. I get their announcements in my Facebook feed and am salivating over all the cases they’re going after.]
The Supreme Court has turned away former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura’s bid for reinstatement of a $1.8 million verdict in his defamation case against the estate of slain Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle.
[CtH: I thought Ventura was mostly just a joke until he did this and then I switched to thinking he is something I don’t say out loud because I’m a lady.]
A Texas judge has dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed last year by the father of “Clock Boy” Ahmed Mohamed against several conservatives.
THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCASIANS MUST CONTINUE TO STIR THE RACIAL HATRED CAULDRON TO KEEP THEIR CLUELESS SHEEP IN LINE.
[CtH: Anger is one of the Seven Deadly Sins.]
A controversial student painting in the Capitol depicting police officers as pigs was rehung and removed upwards of three times Tuesday following an a special event to return it to the wall.
They’re saying “Obama’s presidency was scandal-free” but that don’t make it so. Here’s a short list from Breitbart of the many scandals Team Obama would like us to forget:
The great “stimulus” heist: A trillion dollars wasted on economic “stimulus” spending that created virtually zero private-sector jobs. A great deal of that money apparently vanished into thin air.
Operation Fast and Furious: The Obama administration’s insane program to arm Mexican drug lords resulted in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jamie Zapata, plus hundreds of Mexican citizens.
AG Eric Holder held in contempt of Congress: Holder was the first sitting member of any president’s cabinet to earn this distinction. Of course, Democrats closed ranks behind Holder, the White House protected him, and the media allowed him to spin the contempt vote as mere “political theater.”
ObamaCare: Everything about ObamaCare is a scandal, from the President’s incessant lies about keeping your old plan if you liked it, to Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s insane statement “We need to pass it to find out what’s in it.”
Spying on journalists: Establishment media came about as close to falling out of love with Barack Obama as ever when his administration was caught spying on journalists.
The IRS scandal: A highly politicized IRS admitted to selectively targeting conservative groups, then brazenly lied about not having backups of relevant computer data.
Benghazi: Libya was a disaster after Obama’s unlawful military operation. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was sent into a known terrorist hot zone without sufficient security. And the Obama administration knowingly told a false story during the first few weeks after the attack.
Hillary Clinton’s secret server: She perpetrated her email offenses while working as Obama’s Secretary of State and he knew about it.
The Pigford scandal: The abuse of a program meant to compensate minority farmers for racial discrimination exploded under Obama.
NSA spying scandal: Snowden’s pilfering of sensitive National Security Agency data was a debacle that damaged national security. President Obama and his administration made many false statements as they tried to contain the political damage.
Bowe Bergdahl: The prisoner swap that freed him from the Taliban and its allies was riddled with lies, illegal activity, and bad judgment.
Iran nuclear deal and ransom payment: Everything about Obama’s dealings with Iran has been scandalous, beginning with his silence while the Green Revolution was brutally put down by the mullahs in 2009. The Iran nuclear deal was pushed with lies and media manipulation. The infamous pallet of cash that wasn’t a ransom has become symbolic of Obama’s mendacity and penchant for breaking the rules, when he thinks following them is too much trouble.
Polluting the Colorado river: The Environmental Protection Agency managed to turn the Colorado River orange under this greenest of green Presidents. Of course there was a cover-up.
The GSA scandal: The General Services Administration was caught wasting ridiculous amounts of taxpayer money on lavish parties and silly projects. Of course there was a cover-up.
The VA death-list scandal: Veterans were put on secret death lists while executives handed in phony status reports and signed themselves up for big bonuses.
Solyndra: Billions of taxpayer dollars were wasted financing companies with absurdly unrealistic business models, because the owners had supported Obama’s campaign.
Secret Service gone wild: Agents hiring hookers in Columbia, a fence jumper penetrating the White House, and tipsy Secret Service officials driving their car into a security barrier.
Shutdown theater: Obama hit the American people hard during the great government shutdown crisis of 2013, doing everything he could to make American citizens feel maximum pain – from using “Barry-cades” to keep war veterans away from their memorials, to releasing illegal alien criminals from detention centers.
YOU NEVER SAW IT COMING
For decades you’ve had everything your own way.You never had to work for anything.Don’t know what sacrifice is.You’ve been taught nothing is your fault.You’re a victim.Blame everybody else.Whatever you have,it’s never enough.Whether it’s daddy’s trust fund or a welfare check it’s not free.Somebody else paid for it.You elected ‘the first black president’ by voting for a biracial extremist Muslim that you didn’t know anything about,just the fact he was dark enough to be called black.
In sweeping to power he stepped over the heir-apparent,former first lady,senator,liar,enabler and queen wanna-be,Hillary Clinton.She waited eight long years for her turn to come.To make sure he got his second term she allowed 4 Americans to be butchered then lied about it for 6 weeks until after the election was over.
Her turn finally came.She had everything on her side.The press did her dirty work,her primary was rigged from the beginning,the White House,DOJ,FBI and State Department all joined together to protect her from prosecution for the myriad felonies she had committed.Once she was elected it would all go away.You would get open borders,you’d have a Supreme Court with a liberal majority for 30 years and somebody else would continue paying for your free stuff.The media even did its part to make sure Donald Trump,the media buffoon was the republican candidate so they could tear him to shreds for her.
But then something happened.Trump was not everybody’s first choice.He certainly wasn’t mine.but the thought of the disaster that would befall our nation under continued democrat rule was more than terrible to contemplate.You see,between the upper East side of Manhattan and the posh mansions of Beverly Hills lies a country.it’s referred to derisively as “flyover country.”The landscape is dotted with big city hellholes,all run by democrats.Drugs,crime and corruption rule in these decaying centers of despair.
Go 100 miles outside of any of these cities and you’ll find another America.You don’t understand us and never will.You think we’re all ignorant,backwoods hicks because all we want is to be left alone to raise our kids and live the way we choose without government interference.We go to county fairs and flea markets.When our high school teams go to state tournament we decorate the town with signs of encouragement.When misfortune befalls us,we don’t sit and whine with our hands out waiting for somebody else to help us.We do it ourselves.We don’t raise hell when things don’t go the way we want.We accept things for what they are and move on.
We get called everything your narrow minds can think of.Racist,bigot,homophobe,xenophobe.Anti-immigrant,anti-abortion,extremists.We’re told we can’t fly Old Glory because somebody might be offended.When some malcontent decides to walk on the flag or wipe their ass with it we’re told it’s free speech.A helluva lot more of us,our parents and grandparents sacrificed everything to defend that flag.Militant gays seek out Christian businessmen to force them to participate in things we view as a sin in the eyes of God.When they don’t,they get sued and lose everything they have.We’re forced to allow our 12 year old daughters to share a bathroom with a 50 year old man in a dress. homosexuals scream to stay out of their bedrooms then close off streets and have parades to show us what they do.
We’ve been forced to stand by and could do nothing.This last election was the culmination of the anger and frustration 66 million of us have had to hold inside,knowing there was nothing we could do.You could see at every rally the energy borne of this frustration building to a gigantic outburst.Last Tuesday the day of reckoning had arrived.We’d been mocked,ignored and persecuted long enough.It’s the one day every four years when our voice can be heard.And we WERE heard.
You didn’t get your own way,so the next day the protests began.Like a bunch of sheep you followed the Judas Goats bought and paid for by the most despicable human on the planet,George Soros.You demand we do away with the Electoral College because your girl won the popular vote.What you can’t get through your tiny skulls is that the Founding Fathers were prescient enough to anticipate something like this so the Constitution was written to prevent mob tyranny.
Listen,buttercup,you don’t have any right to demand anything.You don’t work,you don’t pay taxes,the people who wear uniforms and carry weapons,the people you enjoy denigrating are the ones who afford you the opportunity to voice your opinion,useless,though,it may be.You stood in the road waving your Mexican and ISIS flags,feeling like you were a big deal.

Collapse: Democratic Insider Says Clinton Lost White Rural Voters By A Three-to-One Margin
There’s been a sense that Democrats could largely write off the rural vote, as rural voters have left the party because the exodus was offset by demographic growth among urban and nonwhite voters, among others, said Tom Bonier, CEO of Target Smart, a Democratic data and polling firm.
NPR: Too Many Democrats Focus On The Cities And They’ll Be Left Out In The Cold If That Remains
It’s not only bad timing and gerrymandering that have hollowed out the Democratic Party. Mo Elleithee, a former Democratic National Committee official, says Democrats have never put enough effort and resources into state legislative races. Republicans, on the other hand, make those races a top priority.
Too many Democrats live in cities

Awful… OBAMA Warns Against Rise of “Nationalism” – America First is Dangerous
Obama: We have to guard against a rise in a crude sort of nationalism or ethnic identity or tribalism that is built around an us and a them. And I will never apologize for saying that the future of humanity and the future of the world is going to be defined by what we have in common as opposed to those things that separate us and ultimately lead us into conflict.
This is the same guy that supports and cheers the Black Lives Matter terrorist movement.
Krauthammer: Obama Will Be Seen As Someone Who ‘Destroyed His Presidency With Liberal Overreach’
Krauthammer concluded, “[H]istorians are going to see him as a textbook definition of a guy who won on hope and change, who won with a wave of goodwill, and who completely destroyed his presidency with liberal overreach, beginning with Obamacare. And this is a rejection of ideology.” He further warned that if the Democratic Party goes further left, it won’t survive.
Eric Holder on Trump Win: ‘I Have to Think That at Least Part of It Though Was Decisions Made in My Justice Department’
“I have to think that at least part of it though was decisions made in my Justice Department that had at least some impact. I can’t quantify it, but I think it had some impact,” Holder said.
In an interview with Maher, Holder said he was more relaxed because he wasn’t “carrying a bunch” of Republicans on his shoulders beating him up.
“You did a hell of a job, and they didn’t make it easy for you,” Maher said.
Majority of Trump Voters Were Impacted by ‘Religious Liberty’ and ‘Unborn Human Life’ Concerns
“It was the party platform that brokered the deal between Trump and Christian conservatives — a deal that was sealed in the final debate when Trump vividly described a partial-birth abortion and pledged to appoint pro-life justices,” he concluded. “The Republican Party platform played a key role in bringing Christian conservatives and Trump together.”
The survey also found that two-thirds (66 percent) of surveyed voters overall agreed that “government should leave people free to follow their beliefs about marriage between one man and one woman as they live their daily lives at work and in the way they run their businesses.”
