Obama Keeps Holder
As Attorney General

New York Post, by Josh Margolin

Original Article

Posted By:ebgodard, 11/13/2012 8:55:59 PM

President Obama is holding on to Eric Holder as the nation’s top law-enforcement official, The Post has learned. The newly re-elected president asked his controversial attorney general to stay for the second term, and Holder has agreed despite enduring a firestorm of criticism from Republican lawmakers. “I don’t know if everyone in the White House wants him [Holder] to stay, but the important guy does, and that’s all that matters,” said one person briefed on the matter. Holder’s office declined to comment. His hardest-fought battle came over the botched sting operation called Fast and Furious,

Comments:
They will keep each other´s secrets. Can´t have anyone new finding out what Holder knew and when he knew it.

Out of all the crooks and felons in the administration, the one person who has control over which selective laws will or will not be enforced...is conveniently retained. The nightmare continues.....

The problem with what used to be the United States is that the government is the law and now its leaders are lawless. Obama and Holder care nothing about laws unless they can be used to benefit themselves and their liberal supporters. They uphold the laws they like and openly ignore and/or oppose the ones they don’t like. Therefore the average citizen now lives in a nation of unwritten laws, defined and changed at will by the liberals. Therefore the average citizen in reality has no law on his or her side.

This must be the most bankrupt administration to take office ever. Obama et al are out of ideas, out of talent, out of money, out of legitimacy -- and ill tempered to boot.

And we have to endure this for another 1530 days

John Mitchell, Nixon´s Attorney General, was a loyal hack. But, did he do anything worse than Holder?

I know that Scooter Libby was not an Attorney General under Bush. However, other than having an unfortunate nickname, can anyone tell me what Scooter Libby did that deserved jail time.

Holder? No accountability. It seems no one cares to pull back the sheet to look at the rotting corpse of this administration.

Barack and Holder have the goods on each other. Like other communist tyrants, they dare not get off the tiger of authoritarianism because it will just eat them alive. They both are guilty of crimes involving the murders of innocent people through their blind devotion to the marxist religion.

Right on # 7 you really nailed the problem.

The stink from the cesspool that defines this regime grows on an almost daily basis.

I hope the idiots who endorsed this collosal failure of the past 4 years are the most effected by the additional 4 years of calamity that they´ve caused. Many of course are so dense that they´ll not notice as long "de free stuff" continues to flow in their direction.

Holder is a fool. He will definitely get thrown under the bus if he stays. There is too much brewing for him to stay clean this time around.

I think the real reason Obama begged him to stay, though, was because most decent people know a bad thing when they see it, and why would anyone give up a lucrative law practice to wallow in that swamp? It would humiliate Obama to be turned down.

The moochers and takers will not notice anything is amiss until they go to the convenience store to buy RC Cola and Moonpies and their EBT cards no longer work when they swipe them. Then, these drug-addicted losers will get violent and start taking from whatever source they can in order to crap indoors, eat, and take care of their base biological needs. When they head out to your nice suburban neighborhood to "get theirs", that is when things are going to get real interesting...

Paula Broadwell mentioned Senate run
Politico, by Kevin Cirilli    Original Article

Senator Paula Broadwell? It might have been. TIME Magazine reports that David Petraeus’ mistress considered running for as a Republican candidate for senate in North Carolina — but the then-CIA director was against the idea. In July, Broadwell was in Aspen, Colo., for the Aspen Security Forum, TIME said on Thursday, and told a handful of people that GOP financiers had approached her about a possible campaign. She told the acquaintances that when she informed Petraeus, he questioned her positions on issues ranging from abortion to gun control to taxes.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus stoked the controversy over the Obama administration´s handling of the Libya terror attack, testifying Friday that references to "Al Qaeda involvement" were stripped from his agency´s original talking points -- while other intelligence officials were unable to say who changed the memo, according to a top lawmaker who was briefed. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News that intelligence officials who testified in a closed-door hearing a day earlier, including Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Acting CIA Director Mike Morell, said they did not know who changed the talking points.

Washington - Anonymous harassing emails that Tampa socialite Jill Kelley turned over to the FBI contained information about the movements of CIA Director David Petraeus which was not publicly available, a law enforcement source told Reuters. The fact that the emails´ author - later determined to be Petraeus´ mistress Paula Broadwell - knew confidential information about the CIA chief´s activities was one of the main reasons the FBI felt compelled to launch an in-depth investigation into their origin and motivation, the source said. The emails, which a second law enforcement source said included

Media from around the world have convened on the two-story Bayshore Boulevard home of Scott and Jill Kelley. Jill is the socialite mother of three whose FBI complaint about harassing emails eventually led investigators to uncover the CIA director´s affair with his biographer and is now linked to the name of a second top general.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday
