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.

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.

When Donald Sterling had to sell the Los Angeles Clippers because he was caught on tape saying he didn’t want his mistress bringing black people to his basketball games, many people cheered. But if you had paid much attention to Sterling prior to the TMZ-leaked audio, you probably didn’t cheer—not because you weren’t troubled by Sterling’s comments, but because Sterling’s downfall over those particular comments felt a bit anticlimactic.

In just the last five or six years the world has been fundamentally transformed. Instead of the old accustomed Western-inspired postwar global order, crafted and ensured by the United States and its European and Japanese partners, there is now mostly chaos, from Ukraine to Syria to the South China Sea. Or, rather, there may be emerging new rules, given that we are still frozen in a Wild West moment, when everyone in the saloon has drawn his six-shooter, paused, and is wondering what happened to the sheriff — and wondering, too, who will be the first to dare start shooting.

President Obama tonight ordered sending 350 additional troops into Iraq to bolster security at the United States embassy in Baghdad. This is in addition to the 300 military advisors the president sent into Iraq back in June that he maintained would not mean a “return to combat.” The White House statement reads, in part, “This action was taken at the recommendation of the Department of Defense after an extensive interagency review, and is part of the President’s commitment to protect our personnel and facilities in Iraq as we continue to support the Government of Iraq in its fight against the

President Obama said last Thursday that he doesn´t "have a strategy yet" to combat the Islamic State in the Middle East. Worse is what Obama didn´t say — not one word about how to prevent the IS from attacking us right here in the U.S. That´s despite security experts warning Congress repeatedly that the IS´ gory threats to spill American blood should be taken seriously. Compare Obama´s inaction to Prime Minister David Cameron´s decisive action. After British security experts raised the terrorist threat assessment there to "severe," meaning an attack is "highly likely," Cameron called for revoking passports of British citizens returning

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned.

Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP.

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan.

Just resign already. Go. Be gone. Vamoose. Get out of our lives. More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed,
