The ´Most Dangerous Man In
The Obama Administration´

Human Events, by Teresa Mull

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/2/2014 8:57:51 PM

In his new book, Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department (co-written with John Fund), Hans von Spakovsky reveals how our attorney general has turned America’s Department of Justice into “a politicized hotbed of left-wing legal activism.” The author revealed to Human Events the magnitude of Holder’s offenses highlighted in his book, offenses which should be an alarming wake-up call to every American: What do you reveal in your book that people might not know about Eric Holder? People would be shocked at just how much of an ideologue he is. I think they would [also] be surprised at just how far

Comments:
They´re all dangerous and lawless, but Holder sure ranks right up there. I had no idea until I read this that Holder´s demand to provide legal representation to many of the illegal aliens who have come across the border is a direct violation of federal law. I´m not surprised Holder behaved like Obama, but I didn´t know that wasn´t already part of some outrageous law the Surpreme Court validated.

There was a time, some years ago, when the news media would have torn into this outrage and turned up its every feature. It is the shame of the nation that the First Amendment is in the hands of such vermin as now infest the print and electronic mare´s nests.
God help us!

Eric Holder was responsible for the pardons of the FALN terrorists. Eric Holder hates America.

All of them arrived in Chicago East with an agenda while the puppet master rubs his traitorous hands together with glee.

But, let´s be clear- those that could have put a stop to these people, didn´t and won´t.

Make every vote count.

Let´s not forget that Holder served as Janet Reno´s number one assistant AG during the Clinton administration. Another gift from Bill and Hillary that more than justifies why the both of them should NEVER be allowed near the presidency again.

The president likes what he´s doing,...it´s a team effort between the two of them to ignore the laws they don´t like, to change laws they don´t like... even when it´s against the law....Democrats in the Senate and Democrats in the House also completely support everything he´s doing. They have absolutely no objections to his breaking the law, ...and he´s got the president´s full support.

In short, our lawless POTUS is unstoppable because his "Justice" department is lawless. More frightening is the unwillingness of Democrats who know about all this lawlessness to stop it. They can if they so choose to.

So when we take the Senate, we had damn well better clean house at the DOJ because if we don´t, the lawlessness will continue, even if Holder isn´t there. The other employees will simply carry on O´s agenda for a socialist Amerika.

When you have a country where laws are ignored by the people who have sworn an oath to uphold them, truth and honor are no longer the yardsticks by which a country can survive. And so it dies or becomes anarchical.

Learning that Holder is creating law regarding the tsunami of new illegals puts the DOJ in the law-making business, ignoring our 3-branch system of gov´t. Like Obama, who does the same thing, we are teetering on the rim of a steep precipice into which we may as well toss our Constitution unless we act BEFORE the election.

The last paragraph in the article states that Holder has ordered legal representation for illegals which is against federal law. Why can´t the House then refuse the funds to pay for these lawyers? How can the House legally pay for something that is blatantly against federal law? Boehner needs to explain the law to the American public, explain that Holder is breaking federal law and the House is not permitted to fund anything against federal law. The House is going to have to get tough with Holder and be prepared to explain why and stand tough. Unfortunately, Boehner is weak and manages very poorly to express mild outrage in his press appearances and everyone knows he´s not going to follow up. Then the question begs to be asked, What good is the leadership in the House if they will not do their job? History will show that evil prospered while good men did nothing. I am gobsmacked that politicians don´t appear to care or see how quickly the Rule of Law is being ignored. Where is their urgency or are they complicit?

If you put the right people in the right places - they actually believe they are doing the right thing.

They believe they know better than you and me. And, they certainly know better than the framers of the constitution.

The MOST dangerous would be Obama. Holder is the 2nd Banana. NEVER forget that. In a list as to which of ALL Presidential Administrations since the first, Obama´s team Has come the closest to destroying this country. He told us what he would do. He is doing it and getting close to the tipping point of completing his mission.

With Eric The Great at the wheel at the Department of Justice you can be certain that your chances of receiving justice are very slim unless you be of the proper skin color and the proper political beliefs. Eric is simply getting even for imaginary offenses of the past. I doubt he even knows how to spell justice let alone support it. Justice will be a very rare item until he is gone.

I don´t believe that the people Holder has put in place can´t be fired by the new REPUBLICAN president. In 2006 MANY of those put in place were fired and after investigations, it was found not be a criminal offense. So..Clean House! FIRE all of them and replace them with attorneys who are honest and who will undo the mess that Holder has put in place. If Democrats scream and yell about it...so be it. As Obama likes to say.."so, sue me"! We need to play their game and do exactly what we want to do and ignore all of their "Outrage"!

DO NOT depend upon the November election as the answer to our woes. These criminals have been walking upon the Constitution and our rights for six years, they can easily nullify or cancel the election. What´s another little law to a bunch of criminals? Once you have committed the first crime, it gets easier and easier. Obama will use every trick in his little mind to maintain power and continue his destruction of America. Be prepared for stronger resistance than the vote because that´s what it´s going to take to exterminate this nest of vipers.

Holder is one of the core members of the Obama gang. An investigation of the Obama gang would have many of them charged with treason and/or corruption.

The information was out there that Obama and his cronies were a disaster in the making. In spite of that over 100 million people voted for him twice.

The legislative branch and the judicial branch are suppose to be a check and balance against this sort of thing, but have been largely ineffective.

There is a whole lot wrong with the country at this point. Its at the governing level, but it is also at the social level.

Thank Goodness Chambliss has decided to cut bait, and hopefully Isakson has fooled his last Georgian. I do my part by bad-mouthing him with the truth at every opportunity.

Don´t worry about stopping the destruction it´s impossible.
Why?
Because 50% of the hard core complainers and partisans will stay home chained to their chairs and refuse to vote if their favorite candidate is not the final nominee.

As Deputy Attorney General for President Clinton, Mr. Holder was in charge of the armed seizure of little Elian Gonzalez, who is now a touted member of the Communist Youth Party in Cuba. Elian’s seizure constituted the first time in American history that a child was forcibly taken from his legal residence without a court order (and at gunpoint, no less).

In addition to the many incidents cited in the article, the Elian Gonzalez overreach together with Mr. Holder’s refusal to address the Black Panthers’ thuggish intimidation of voters, again displayed to everyone Mr. Holder’s complete disrespect and disregard for the ‘justice’ that he had sworn to uphold.

Yes, we will be reeling under the results of his studiously intentional and deliberately destructive abuse of the laws of our country for a very long time.

Illegals--But He Can Decide
How to ´Implement the Laws´
Cybercast News Service, by Brittany M. Hughes    Original Article

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said that President Obama “can’t legalize” the illegal aliens in the United States, but then added that the president “can implement the laws as he believes they should be implemented." "Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution states that Congress has the power to make laws governing naturalization. Given this, does President Obama have the unilateral power to legalize illegal aliens?" CNSNews.com asked Hoyer. “I don’t think he does,” Hoyer responded, “and I don’t think that’s what he’s going to do. You’re right. He can’t legalize them.” “What the president can in fact do, however, is implement the

Indiana Gov.

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to

Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

Democratic leaders are welcoming efforts by the House GOP leadership to amend a minor 2008 immigration bill, because it could revive the now-dormant, business-backed comprehensive immigration reform push. The House’s proposed change to the 2008 bill is “an opening for us to have a conference on our comprehensive immigration reform,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. GOP leaders announced Tuesday they’re scheduling a Thursday vote on changes to the existing 2008 immigration law. For more than a month, President Barack Obama has blamed the law for his decision to allow more than 100,000 Central American migrants into the United States. The GOP’s base,

The Times netted only $9.2 million this quarter compared to $20.1 million last year. A fall in advertising revenues and stepped-up investment in digital products outweighed rises in digital subscribers and circulation revenue at the New York Times, sending headline profit 54 per cent lower in the second quarter.

When asked if they "favor, oppose or neither favor nor oppose emergency spending by the federal government to improve living conditions for children currently being detained for crossing the border illegally and to allow deportation hearings for those children to proceed more quickly," 38% of respondents opposed while 32% favored authorizing emergency funds.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said in a statement Tuesday that House Speaker John Boehner’s border crisis working group’s legislation is a “surrender” to a “lawless president.” “The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants,” Sessions said. He went on: This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens. Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions. Congress must speak out

A federal judge on Tuesday granted a 90-day stay in a ruling that upended the District’s ban on carrying handguns in public. The order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick Scullin brings a temporary reprieve to D.C. officials, who were sent scurrying over the weekend to interpret the effects of the ruling that gutted the city’s restrictive gun laws. An order issued Saturday by the judge struck down the city’s ban on the carrying of guns in public as unconstitutional. While still struggling to comprehend the scope of the order, D.C. police ordered officers to stop arresting people for carrying legally

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

Geraldo Rivera hates it whenever any one around him refers to people illegally crossing the border as “illegals.” On Monday’s edition of Outnumbered he challenged FNC’s Ainsley Earhardt when she dared to use that phrase in his presence. Rivera barked: “Every time you say ‘illegals,’ it’s like fingernails on a black board!” Well Earhardt, along with a few of her co-panelists, fought back against Rivera’s insistence that the border-crossers were “law-abiding.” (video after the jump) The following is the relevant exchange as it was aired on the July 28 edition of FNC’s Outnumbered: Andrea Tantaros: Ainsley how does this move,

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers. But when it comes to smoking dope, the mind

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California
