NYT: White House Wants Holder to Resign……


Presidential aides are privately admitting to a growing frustration inside the White House with Attorney General Eric Holder’s political ineptness in the press leak investigations and are hoping the embattled appointee will resign from office, The New York Times reports.

“The White House is apoplectic about him, and has been for a long time,” said an anonymous Democrat source, identified only as a former government employee who acknowledged the White House staffers in question are his friends.

President Barack Obama’s advisers are frustrated with Holder’s inability to foresee problems arising from his approval of a subpoena naming a Fox News reporter as a coconspirator in an espionage investigation. Now Congress is looking at whether Holder lied under oath when he testified last month that he knew nothing about the incident.

Additionally, Holder has become a lightening rod for criticism for pulling the phone records of 100 Associated Press reporters in another polarizing investigation.

“How hard would it be to anticipate that the AP would be unhappy?” the former official said. “And then they haven’t defended their position.”

The New York Times article highlighted a rare glimpse of the interworking of the White House social circle, stating that Holder’s “saving grace through years of controversies has been the friendship of two women close to Mr. Obama” – First Lady Michelle Obama, who is good friends with Holder’s wife, and Valerie Jarrett, the president’s senior adviser.

In addition to the press leak scandals, Holder has come under attack for his agency’s participation in the botched gun-trafficking investigation “Fast and Furious,” for which Holder was found in contempt of Congress.

And, in 2009, Holder made a contentious decision to prosecute September 11 terrorists in a Manhattan civilian court, but his decision was eventually reversed.

Bob Woodward of the Washington Post brought up the New York Times story during a press roundtable discussion on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” and said both Holder and Obama need to explain this and other unfolding scandals to the American people

“It’s all very troubling, and you lump all these things, IRS and Benghazi together, and what you’ve got is a feeling that no one’s coming clean, we aren’t getting straight talk,” Woodward said.

“This goes to President Obama, he’s got to find a way to unravel this. We live in an age of distrust, I think it’s more severe now, and he has to find some way to clean this up and say this is what happened,” Woodward said.

David Ignatius, a columnist and associate editor at the Washington Post, said the larger question is whether Holder has done a good job as the nation’s top law enforcement officer.

“In terms of the critique of Eric Holder, the problem is Eric Holder has been a weak attorney general,” Ignacious said.

Friends of Holder told the Times that the attorney general does not want to leave his job working for the government because he does not like working in the private sector, but there are rumblings he might resign as early as this fall.

William M. Daley, Obama’s former chief of staff, spoke on the record to the Times and said that as long as Holder runs the department in a competent manner and remains a friend of Obama, he would not be drummed out of the administration for political reasons.

“Whoever Barack Obama puts in there, these people will try to drumbeat him out of there, no matter what,” Daley said.

Tom Brokaw, the former NBC “Nightly News” anchor, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the Times article exemplifies the typical Washington two-step – being praised on the record, “but at the same time there’s another part of that two-step that is going on in which people are saying it would be better if he left, it would be better for the president to get this cleaned up.”
Brokaw there is a political double standard in play with regards to how the Obama administration scandals are playing.

“From a political point of view, one of the ways that you can measure the impact of all of this and the fairness of it, is think if this had happened in the Bush administration with John Ashcroft as the attorney general. You know full well that the Democrats and the left would be going very hard after them,” Brokaw said.

Rep. Peter King: Holder May Be Guilty of Perjury…..


Rep. Peter King says Attorney General Eric Holder’s initial denial of involvement in the targeting of Fox News reporter James Rosen “could be perjury.”

In an wide-ranging interview Tuesday with Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show,” King also discussed:
President Barack Obama’s “moralizing” speech on the closing of Guantanamo Bay, saying the terror threat is more dangerous now than on 9/11;
The Obama administration should exercise “extreme caution” in evaluating the possible sale of Sprint Nextel Corp. to a foreign company.
King, a Republican from New York, was highly critical of Holder, who previously said he would never be part of targeting a reporter and didn’t think it was good policy, when he actually approved a search warrant on James Rosen. The House Judiciary Committee is reportedly looking into whether he perjured himself in steadfastly denying a role in the Rosen subpoena when he OK’d the seizure of the Fox reporter’s phone records.
King comments: “To me, on its face, that certainly could be perjury. And the reason I’m saying ‘could be’ — I know there’s always precise standards to meet — that certainly warrants a full investigation as to whether or not perjury was committed there. There’ve been other people over the years indicted for perjury or tried for perjury on a lot less evidence than that.”

Illinois has tough gun laws to prevent crimes…..Police say 5 people found dead in small Ill. town


Yes, tough gun laws really work well….for the criminals…

Authorities are investigating the slayings of five people whose bodies were found in a house in the tiny Scott County community of Manchester. A suspect is in custody.
Illinois State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says the victims were found early Wednesday morning in the southwestern Illinois community, 50 miles west of Springfield. She didn’t have any details on the deaths or the circumstances surrounding the capture of the suspect.
A school superintendent in the area says he was informed by sheriffs early Wednesday morning that the victims had been shot to death. Les Stevens of the North Greene School District says he canceled classes because authorities warned him at the time that the suspect was at large. The district has since been informed that the man was captured.

Justice Department Nailed Telling “Non-Profit” Media Matters How to Spin Press


So much for an apolitical Justice Department, although the bloom’s been off that rose since Attorney General Eric Holder was sworn into office.

Matthew Boyle of the Daily Caller has attained numerous internal DOJ emails that show in disquieting detail how America’s supreme law enforcement branch instructed a supposedly 501(c)3 non-profit, apolitical organization known as Media Matters to attack anyone who dared criticize the department.
Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals.
Media Matters is infamous for being a left-wing mouthpiece for the Democrat Party, despite its “non-profit” status. The organization’s brash sense of security can be summed up by the announcement of its “progressive” leanings on its own website, which would violate non-profit status.

The Department of Justice had been embroiled in controversy over Operation Fast & Furious, perhaps the worst political scandal in American history, but one that has been completely buried by the mainstream press.

Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt earlier this year for refusing to turn over thousands of pages of documents on Operation Fast & Furious, which led to the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry as well as hundreds of Mexican civilians. The U.S. government assisted in gun trafficking to Mexican drug cartels, ostensibly in an effort to trace gun-running. Only a fraction of the guns “walked” to the border were successfully traced.

The Obama administration came under a lot of heat to release Attorney General Eric Holder months ago during public hearings. The Fast & Furious scandal fizzled out prior to the elections, but just went back on the front-burner, along with the future of the taxpayer-subsidized and Soros-funded Media Matters.

Brand-new surge in black-mob violence…..


Cop tips off media about cover-up after dozens arrested.
===========================================
The weeks before and after Labor Day are a busy time for black mob violence and lawlessness – some of which made the news.

Most of which did not.

Let’s start in Chicago. On August 26, Chicago police arrested 24 black people in the upscale, downtown Gold Coast area for a “ruckus” that featured “running in and out of crowds bumping into people and pushing folks.”

This incident was brought to the attention of WND.com by a member of the Chicago police department.

“The papers are calling it a ruckus,” said the officer. “But this was a series of violent episodes, by violent people, that the local media and the police administration simply do not wish to deal with. They arrested 24. For every one they caught, several got away. The crowd was black.”

Chicago has been the site of at least 50 similar episodes of racial violence over the last three years, including at least a dozen this year.

In Erie, Pa., the end of the summer features the annual downtown Celebrate Erie days. This year, as in the past, hundreds of “unruly teens” disrupted several nights of the festival with violence and mayhem.

Twitter traffic and local web sites identified the teens as black. Even if local media did not.

Down in Savannah, a white man in the company of a black woman was beaten unconscious by several black men after he took exception to racially charged comments made to the couple. According to the black news web site NewsOne, the man and his girlfriend were

“leisurely strolling through the town’s square when suddenly they were approached by three black men who began barraging them with racial slurs.

“‘One of them was making racial comments at us and one of them was blowing kisses. It was very aggravating,’ she said.”

Savannah Chief of Police Willie Lovett does not call it a hate crime because that is a “serious” label that could “taint our community unfairly.”

In Sacramento, several black men taunted a “gay” man on the public transit. They beat him when he tried to get off the train.

In Buffalo, a woman was “mercilessly beaten by six to ten people” after she tried to help a deli owner stop a mob of black shoplifters. Several bones in her face were broken. The attack is on video.

This attack follows by two weeks two other episodes of black mob violence at nearby Buffalo State College, where three people were robbed and one was shot in August. Police did not return calls for comment on a description of the suspects.

In Burlington, Vt., a mob of black people pushed a man off his bike, beat and robbed him.

In Ann Arbor, Mich., six black men refused entry to a fraternity party attacked a student, beat him, and broke bones in his face.

At the University of Missouri, four black men attacked a man in a parking lot at 1:13 a.m.

In Fairview Heights, Ill., for the second time in six months, a group of black women assaulted their waitress at the Red Lobster. They said she was coming by too often to fill up their water glasses.

In Durham, N.C., black mobs are suspects in almost two dozen assaults and robberies over the last two years. The attacks have taken place at the recently opened American Tobacco Trial, a 7.5 mile walking and running track that goes through Durham.

The race of the attackers was not reported in the press until recently. Even so, Police Chief Jose Lopez has it all figured out:

“The simple assaults don’t appear to be motivated by robbery,” Lopez said. “It appears to be motivated more by mischievousness and the locations where they find individuals who are clearly running by themselves.”

“So if you look at that, versus the thousands of people who run the trail on a daily basis, it’s pretty safe,” he said.

Lopez said crimes on running trails occur throughout the United States.

In Philadelphia, the same newspaper that was loathe to report the racial makeup of dozens of large black mobs rampaging through its downtown neighborhoods recently announced the mob violence was over. “We got through a whole summer without a flash mob,” bragged a columnist for the Philadelphia Daily News.

Guess he wasn’t counting that Fourth of July black mob that “brutally attacked” several people. The attackers were caught on tape. And he probably forgot about that March beat down. Also caught on tape.
The Black Panthers have announced that they will be back at the polling stations again this November. Remember the last time? Black panthers wielding billy clubs, yelling racial slurs just outside the door, which is in direct violation of voter laws, yet Obama’s boy Holder said no laws were broken and let it continue.

House sues Holder in ‘Fast and Furious’ gunwalking case…


A House committee filed suit against Attorney General Eric Holder Monday in federal court. The suit attempts to force Holder to turn over key documents relating to the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” gunwalking program during the Bush and Obama administrations, when as many as 1,000 guns ended up in the hands of Mexican cartels in a botched attempt to capture higher-ups in the organizations.

Holder, backed by President Barack Obama, has refused to release all the documents that the House committee demands, saying they are privileged internal deliberations. Politico’s Josh Gerstein reports that it’s “unclear the courts have authority to force an executive branch official to fork over documents in such circumstances.” In June, the House voted to hold Holder in contempt for not complying with its subpoenas.
