Attorney General Eric Holder Must Go

It’s simple. Attorney General Eric Holder cannot handle the job he was erroneously given. Never should have been the AG, should be fired now….

President Obama has screwed up just about everything he was originally elected to do. Not all of us voted for Barack Obama because he was a Democrat, or because he wasn’t McCain or Romney, or because he was black… Some of us actually voted for him because he talked like he was going to “change” things. He hasn’t. And the fact that he wasn’t going to could be seen from the very beginning. We knew Obama was shedding his Liberal facade when he snuggled up to Red Joe Lieberman right after Lieberman opposed Obama and supported McCain in the 2008 elections.

Then with one miserable choice after another Barack Obama set himself, and us, up for poor to mediocre-at-best performance in instituting “change” of any significance. Embracing all the wrong views he could, Obama began the path to the un-kept campaign promiseland early and eagerly.

…Yeah, he’s done some good things. But they’re not nearly good enough.

We could have Single Payer Health Care. But evidently going balls out to implement Presidential directives to save a handful of lives (then only maybe) is okay, but he can’t be bothered to do it when it comes to the well-being of the entire nation.

The Drug War, with it’s rights violations, it’s rabid violence and it’s immense fiscal waste could be over. But It seems Obama, his Squire, Eric Holder, and his Secretary of Whatever, Hillary Clinton, have been too busy blaming Americans for the violence on the Mexican border to do the right thing.

Which brings us to the point. Attorney General Eric Holder.

This man is not only a failure, he’s a total disgrace.

As we wrote long ago
ATTORNEY GENERAL

* Eric Holder, a former Justice Department official in the Clinton administration, will run the Justice Department. Holder has been a senior legal adviser to Obama’s campaign and helped vet his vice presidential candidates.

This appointment is a mistake. Why? Eric Holder is a sleazy kinda guy, that’s why. First we have the Marc Rich pardon, which Bill Clinton is guilty of and Holder an accessory.
In 1983, financier Marc Rich was indicted for evading more than $48 million in taxes, and charged with 51 counts of tax fraud, as well as running illegal oil deals with Iran during the 1979-1980 hostage crisis. During his last week in office, President Bill Clinton pardoned Rich, who had fled the U.S. during his prosecution and was residing in Switzerland. Clinton’s eleventh-hour move, along with pardons of his half-brother, Roger, and former business partner Susan McDougal, outraged Republicans and Democrats alike. The Rich pardon prompted an investigation into the possibility it was bought by the hefty donations Rich’s ex-wife, Denise, had given to the Clintons and the Democrats. In the end, investigators did not find enough evidence to indict Clinton.

Then, we have Holder’s association with the Chiquita Corporation. And the Death Squads they employed.
In 2004, Holder helped negotiate an agreement with the Justice Department for Chiquita Brands International in a case that involved Chiquita’s payment of “protection money” to the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, a group on the U.S. government’s list of terrorist organizations.In the agreement, Chiquita’s officials pleaded guilty and paid a fine of $25 million. Holder represented Chiquita in the civil action that grew out of this criminal case.

Eric Holder is dirty from his shoes up, but that’s not the half of it. He’s totally incompetent as well.
He simply cannot handle the job. He has lost control of the Federal Agencies he’s been placed in charge of.
The DEA has gone rogue. They have been running around the country raiding small, mom & pop type businesses for selling Herbal products that are completely legal. During these raids the DEA confiscates thousands of dollars worth of merchandise that is perfectly legal, the store owner’s funds, personal and business property…Even having the audacity to invade the homes of hard working people and assault their families.
The raids end with no arrests, no charges and no return of seized property to the rightful owners. Essentially strong armed robbery of micro-businesses and their owners.
The DEA assails American citizens with impunity because there is no oversight where it should be.

Unfit for Duty:
Epic Failure

Holder has lost total control of the ATF. The Agency doesn’t even have a director. Holder failed to be fully aware of the “Fast and Furious” operation that literally provided assault weapons to Mexican drug terrorists. An epic failure of leadership if ever there was one.

The FBI has run amok.
Eric Holder is allowing, by virtue of ignorance, Federal Agencies to literally terrorize average Americans and non-dangerous offenders while doing nothing to confront violent gangs and other of societie’s predators. Recently, internet freedom activist Aaron Swartz committed suicide after being threatened with outrageous amounts of prison time (which no judge or jury would approve) for no other reason than publicity for the Federal Prosecutors. Congress is now looking into this grotesque abuse of authority resulting in the death of a courageous young man.

It is far beyond time for Eric Holder to vacate the office he has disgraced (to the levels of John Asscroft). This Attorney General has brought nothing but shame upon the office of head cop.

The Law Enforcement end of Federal Government’s responsibility as turned into a scary, creepy publicity seeking joke and is in dire need of reform. That reform must begin with the firing of Eric Holder and continue with the firing of any and all Bush Era appointees like Michele Leonheart.

Gov’t agencies are out of control. The only way to change that is to change leadership. Whether or not Barack Obama has the guts to do it is very questionable at this point.
