In the latest government/Obama scandal of scandals Eric Holder, whom we know has just got to go before he further ruins the rep of the DOJ. James Rosen who is the head of Fox has made his rounds on the airwaves. Is Eric after him in particular? It seems that Rosen might be a spy!
With the press, in the worthless state they find themselves often in the tank for Obama anyway except for a precious few press and media outlet DOJ or rather the press, has a big friend in the WH in the form of the Dem-controlled government. Fox News seems to be the main target of the illegal requests for information. But that is only the beginning of this scurilous scandal.

CNN‘s John King plays Holder’s testimony to Congress on MAY 3, 2011, where he said he had only just recently heard about the Fast & Furious gunrunning program. “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks,” Attorney General Eric Holder said.
Then CNN compares Holder’s testimony to what President Obama said in MARCH to CNN Espanol about the operation. “I heard on the news about this story that — Fast and Furious, where allegedly guns were being run into Mexico, and ATF knew about it, but didn’t apprehend those who had sent it.” Transcript of the segment that aired on “John King USA” below:
KING: Well, Congressman Cummings, let’s get to one of the questions here. Let’s first listen to the attorney general. He came before this committee back in May. Here’s what he said.

ISSA: When did you first know about the program officially I believe called Fast and Furious? To the best of your knowledge, what date?
ERIC HOLDER, U.S. ATTORNEY GENERAL: I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
KING: He says over the last few weeks.
That is on May 3, 2011. Listen to this interview the president of the United States, not the attorney general, the president of the United States, had with CNN Espanol back in March.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: There have been problems, you know. I heard on the news about this story that — Fast and Furious, where allegedly guns were being run into Mexico, and ATF knew about it, but didn’t apprehend those who had sent it.
Eric Holder has — the attorney general has been very clear that he knew nothing about this. We had assigned an I.G., inspector general, to investigate it. (END VIDEO CLIP)
KING: It begs the question, how did the president know about this in March, and how did the president know the attorney general knew nothing about this in march, when the attorney general says in May he just learned about it a couple weeks ago?

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s “lack of trustworthiness” in explaining what he knew about the failed “Fast and Furious” weapons investigation has “called into question his overall credibility” to serve as the nation’s top prosecutor, the chairman of a House committee investigating the operation said Monday.
In a blistering letter, Rep. Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, who heads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, told Mr. Holder that it was time for him “to come clean to the American public” on what he knew and when about the weapons investigation, saying Mr. Holder has made numerous statements about the operation that have “proven to be untrue.”
could Holder be impeached and forced to resign and take some other dogs down with him?

You won’t catch Rachel MadCow chewing on this one. Nor will you hear a peep out of Sharpton, who makes more mistakes than the three Stooges on the hot seat tackling this fish. But I ask YOU the taxpayer: who else could have authorized Fast and Furious to put guns in the hands of more Mexicans? Only the top brass could have done this debacle. Only they are capable and culpable of such deviant behavior. I knew Holder was a rat when I saw him and now the truth will out. He and Obama claim to know nothing of the 1500 guns that were sold and put in the hands of Mexicans for tracing back to the states to see who the straw people were. Who the hell cares who the straw folks are? Why put more free weapons in the hands of criminals who have used the arms to kill americans and law enforcement?
What an idiot if Eric did this with Obama’s approval they will both get swept out of office in 2012.

Donald Trump was on Hannity tonight talking up his latest enterprise that has been wildly successful==The Apprentice. At this point Donald needs a trump card to get his casinos out of hock. Now, The Donald is into “Celebrity Apprentice” because he has watched them “through the years.”
Good show, but then I love reality shows. The regular episodes of the Apprentice were teacher worthy in terms of the tasks presented with each group. People, money and management skills were required to pull off a win. It seemed that the minorities in the group lacked people skills. People skills sank their chance of winning. But exactly what were those same shows teaching young people about race in America? And about races getting along with each other, forget having a meaningful conversation? Not much. Or maybe much, along the lines of the races really do not get along. They avoid each other, evade questions about race and plain don’t like members of the other race.
Anthropologists might say that it is all coded into our DNA, DO NOT ASK! (me about race)
Heloise : “I’ll ask–are Americans watching racism when they watch interactions on reality shows?” I think so.
Trump and his inclusivity is an enigma in that not sure if he is liberal or right wing. He says he likes black people, and invites blacks to participate on the Apprentice. But they always end up behind the eight ball. Not too many bright moments for the brothers and sisters who dare to expose themselves to the very white world of TV. Too white for me.
I could barely watch when blacks participated on shows like big brother, america’s next top model, survivor or apprentice. They bombed big time. Okay, next.
I checked out the lineup for Trump’s latest–quite a few black folks are slated.
We shall see how they fare.
If Donald’s appearance on Hannity is any indication, then he is pretty much in the conservative camp. They call themselves the big tent party. It’s more like a tent without the poles in place. Much room underneath no doubt if you’re white…No one is fooled by Michael Steele, black man in white face.
Conservatives are one thing, but the party is another…they don’t just get it wrong they miss the whole point of politics, enough said? I hate this buzzword “post-racial society” mostly because I never used it and don’t get its relevance.
I will believe that we are in a “post-racial society” the day I see black people participate and thrive on white TV reality shows. Funny test isn’t it? But that is perhaps “the conversation about race” that Holder hoped might happen when he called the country a “nation of cowards” when it comes to race.
Eric Holder, the first black AG, you might have a point when it comes to this lack of lingo between the races. Because if you watch reality shows you will see black and white are NOT talking to each other but about each other, even when on the same team! Ouch.
Message to black America–stay away from participating in reality shows, really.
See my posted comment from Bill Moyers here .
Rush Limbaugh’s rant today was that he is no racial coward. He posits that those on the Left are racial cowards for voting for Barack Obama dubbed…”The Bamster.”
Okay. He wants to hear a speech from Eric Holder or Obama about what they DO LIKE about this country. In other words they are the racial cowards in this country for not being over the moon about America.
I’ll bite–when is a white person not a racial coward:
Rush says when they are not falling over themselves talking about black men as jocks, studs and the upholders of the race in the sports arena. He’s right about that. Everything good comes from black men and their muscles or how those muscles are trained. It is not the brain, it’s the brawn that black men are celebrated and rewarded for.
Is that the message that Holder and Obama want to send to black men and black boys: that everyone with a white face (believe me the only white faces most blacks see are in the classroom where white women teach them) is a racial coward? The problem with that logic is its force in creating more victimology and pathology, despite a black president.
The center of the gravity in this country has hardly changed.
There is too much evidence to the contrary– we are still a highly polarized, racially segregated society where it counts — in the neighborhood. Where you live is where it hurts the races: the suburbs built were built to keep white white, and black black.
Rush I hope I got it right, you were talking fast.
The senate is dancing on Holder’s confirmation as attorney general. The vote and hearings will continue next week.
He would become a member of Obama Island (my name for Obama’s cabinet) but my advice to the senate–don’t do it! Too much blackness. I don’t mean his skin color but the lack of transparency about this candidate is deafening. I mean look at the man’s name: holder. holes in his story. Hmm.
Time will tell if he is confirmed but the clock has already started ticking on Geithner. Too many skeletons rattling around this guy Holder. He’s cute, but not truthful enough for me. Tim Geitner has been confirmed since I wrote this article. There is no surprise because he is a darling of Wall Street. He knows folks who know folks. He’s an insider. But insiders can be dangerous to the cohesion of this island’s administration. They are natural prima donnas!
In addition to the regular questions one might ask will taxes rear its ugly head in the confirmation of Eric Holder along with other problems and under-the-rug sweepings he performed for the Clinton administration?
My prediction would go along these lines: if he is confirmed sans problem it will be a close vote. If he is not confirmed then it will be due to some unexpected uncoverings in his record.
