… There Will Likely come a Time [#FBI][#criminal][# Miz Hillary]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 2nd,2016

.. that the F.B.I. will reach what I believe will be a ” Come to jesus ” point in its investigation of Miz Hillary [and , likewise , about the Clinton machine] ..

.. they will have gathered a great deal of evidence . This evidence will likely have been presented [in secret] before a federal grand jury . It will be a an investigative grand jury , not necessarily a regular [criminal] one . It will be one that is used to gather evidence and other information . The decisions about who to charge and what to charge them with will be made elsewhere ..

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. the F.B.I. will present its case to the ObamaCrap Department of InJustice . in its report , they will make there recommendations about what those decisions should be . Then the A.G. [Loretta Lynch] will have to make the toughest decisions of her life and her career ..

.. she can make the decision to charge . If she does , then the course of the current political campaign will likely be changed , probably forever . In all likelihood , Hillary Clinton will be forced from the presidential race ..

.. she can then make the decision not to charge . If she does not do so , then it is very , very likely that there will be repercussions from those decision . People will resign their positions at the F.B.I. , UP TO AND POTENTIALLY INCLUDING Director James comey , himself . That event will also irretrievably alter the course of the campaign ..

… Do Not Confirm Loretta Lynch [#US AG]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 27th,2015

.. she is not qualified for the job .

.. there are waaay too many questions about her conduct on the job as US Atty in the Eastern District of New York [Brooklyn] . She has conduct far too many questionable actions as the people ‘ s atty for her to be able to be confirmed as AG .

.. [h/t — Newsmax.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. there is also a much bigger question . She was questioned by members of the US Senate during her so – called confirmation hearings . Before the first of the year [while the DemoCraps controlled the Senate] , Dingy Harry Reid & Co could have easily pushed her nomination through . It would have been a honey of a battle , but it could have been done . However , Dingy Harry & Co demurred from the fight . I am not sure as to why …

.. The capstone on her lack of qualification for the office is an answer to a question during her confirmation hearings . Senator Jeff Sessions [R-Al] posed to her a question about His Lordship ‘ s alleged ” Executive Action ” on immigration . Lynch could have dodged the question , or said that she did not support the action . However , she did not . She said that what POTUS had done is both legal and constitutional .

.. For a prospective AG to do that on an issue that is clearly both illegal and unconstitutional makes her patently unqualified to be Attorney General of the United States . There are also other far more qualified candidates …

… What is Deval Patrick up To ?!?! [#Massachusetts Governor]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,October 25th,2014

.. good question ?? …

.. his moves [featherbedding supporters & issuing pardons] are not the wisest of moves . At least for a political campaign . Even in the People ‘ s Republic of Taxachusetts …

.. [h/t — HotAir.com]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. I think that he has something else in mind : Attorney General of the United States …

.. remember , Patrick was Assistant AG for Civil Rights under Wilhelm der Fibmeister . It took a recess appointment and one hell of a political fight to finally get him confirmed as that job … so you can see what he has done since then ….

.. given the current circumstances [55 Dem // 45 GOP] in the Senate , I think that good ol ‘ Dingy Harry Reid and Company can get him [or someone else] confirmed by the Senate during the Lame Duck session . Especially if the DemoCraps get blown out [as expected] in the Midterm elections …

.. it will be the DemoCraps last chance to get anyone remotely controversial confirmed by the Senate . However , the GOP can make the Dems sweat , espc. if the Defeated Caucus is the possible margin of confirmation . Boy , would that be fun to watch …

… More on a Fine Whine [#Eric Holder]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,April 11th,2014

.. to be honest ,what in the hell is Eric Holder doing in front of a criminal organization like N.A.N. ??

.. they were formed as a criminal front organization . Especially as a front organ for the antics and blackmail tactics of the so – called ” Reverend , ” Al Sharpton . Sharpton had to do something …

.. After the schemes with the F.B.I. and the drug dealing blew up , then the blackmail scheme with Tamara Brawley and now the Crown Heights riots , Sharpton had to go to ground . He had to find something to start to rehabilitate his reputation . Plus , he had to shed ” tons . ” Running around in those jogging suits made him look like an idiot …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the speech footage ..

.. Holder has no right to complain …. None , whatsoever . How he can whine like this , it is beneath the dignity of his office . Ideally , he should know better . Unfortunately , he does not care one whit about it …

… What Part of Supreme Court Precedent Do You Not Understand ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,July 25th,2013

.. Mr. Attorney General ??

.. Well , It seems that Attorney General  Eric Holder has become notoriously thick in the skull , i.e. pig – headed . He wants to haul the

Shelby County Courthouse IMG_4704

Shelby County Courthouse

entire state of Texas back  into court , and  place it under the controls of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 , once again . What he wants is for the state to obtain “preclearance” before changing any of its voting procedures . efore anything , voting – wise .

.. Preclearance basically means that an entity is found guilty . They must then prove themselves innocent ,  before going ahead with any changes  to their voiting prcedures or laws . In other words , the Holder department of InJustice wants Texas to play “Mother May I ” before doing anything voting – wise .

.. Shelby County V Holder and Arizona V ITC changed all of that . Shelby County has basically placed all of the states back on a level playing field . Each state is equal , before the law and the scales of justice . Each state may implement voting changes on its own , with having to get permission  from anyone  . Only if a court case were brought against a state , and a finding were made , in theory , could a state , or another entitity , be put back under Section 5 .

Also , Shelby County undercuts Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act , by ruling Section 4 unconstitutional . In order to find evidence (Section 4) , InJustice could then make a justification (Section 5) for disallowing a change . Now , it cannot do so . Section 5 is  still available . Section 4 , however  ,  is not .  It has been disalloweed , and does not  effectively allow a court casese to go forward .

.. Az v  ITC is a sweeping precedent . It has acted to place a fairly clear line in between the ability of Congress to regulate federal elections , and the states , who can regulate who can vote . You would think that the the liberals would be screaming  “bloody murder ” over this . No , not as of yet , thankfully . Also , two of the coourt ‘ s liberals participated in the ruling , effectiviely neutering , for now , any opposition to the case .

from NewsMax.com : …

 The U.S. Department of Justice plans to ask a federal court  to reinstate its authority over voting laws in Texas, part of a new Obama  administration strategy to challenge state and local election laws it says  discriminate by race, Attorney General Eric Holder said on Thursday.

“Based on the evidence of intentional racial discrimination that was  presented last year in the redistricting case, Texas v. Holder … we believe  that the state of Texas should be required to go through a preclearance process  whenever it changes its voting laws and practices,” Holder told the annual  conference of the National Urban League, a civil rights organization, which is  meeting in Philadelphia.

The Obama administration has been searching for new ways to oppose voting  discrimination since the U.S. Supreme Court in June invalidated a key part of  the 1965 Voting Rights Act.

A 5-4 conservative majority on the high court ruled that a formula used to  determine which states and localities were subject to extra federal scrutiny was  outdated.

The ruling freed Texas and select other jurisdictions from having to submit  their voting laws to the Justice Department before they could take effect.

The covered jurisdictions were mostly in the South, a region where officials  had a history of denying minorities the right to vote. Chief Justice John  Roberts wrote in the high court’s ruling that the South had changed  dramatically.

Holder’s Justice Department had used the process known as “preclearance” to  block, among other laws, a new plan for congressional district lines in Texas  drawn after the 2010 U.S. Census. Government lawyers  and civil rights groups convinced a court that the map, if it took effect, would  have too few black and Hispanic districts.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, a Republican, said after the Supreme  Court ruling that the redistricting plan could then go into effect  immediately.

State lawmakers ultimately approved a map that was deemed friendlier to  minority populations, though state Democrats still criticize it.

As a first step  in its new strategy, the Justice Department plans to make clear it supports a  pending lawsuit that racial minorities brought against the redistricting plan in  federal court in Texas.

If the court agrees the plan was racially discriminatory, then the Justice  Department will ask the court to place Texas back in the preclearance process  for an undetermined period of time, according to Holder’s prepared speech.

“This is the Department’s first action to protect voting rights following the  Shelby County decision, but it will not be our last,” Holder, the first black  U.S. attorney general, told the group.

The Supreme Court in its June ruling left in place the preclearance process  and most other parts of the Voting Rights Act, invalidating only the formula for  states and localities to be subjected automatically to extra scrutiny.

Some members of Congress have discussed passing a new formula that would  comply with the Supreme Court’s ruling, but they have not done so.

… Eric Holder , Have You gone Mad ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 17th,2013

.. and lost all sense of dignity , decency , and proportion .

.. the Attorney General could have made things better . At least , he could have tried . Unfortunately , I believe , he has made things a whole lot worse .

.. He made a speech today at the N.A.A.L.C.P. national convention in Orlando , Florida . He could have and should have chosen his words with great care . He did not [Included text] . He went on to the offensive , and attacked Florida ‘ s self – defense – oriented “stand your ground” law . Anywhere else , that might have been understandible . At this gathering , it was a capital offense of pandering to the idiots .

.. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, in a speech to the nation’s largest civil rights group, said it’s time to “take a hard look” at state

laws that allow individuals who feel threatened to respond with deadly force.

.. Addressing an issue that gained prominence with the killing of Trayvon Martin, the black teenager shot by George Zimmerman in February 2012, Holder said laws like Florida’s Stand Your Ground statute “senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhood.”

.. “These laws try to fix something that was never broken,”Holder said today at the NAACP’s national convention in Orlando, Florida. “We must stand our ground to ensure that our laws reduce violence, and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent.” Holder’s remarks marked the first time he has spoken on the issue. They come just days after Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchvolunteer, was acquitted of state second-degree murder charges by a jury in Sanford, Florida.

— no , genius , the “stand your ground” law reiterates was has been the tradition from common law of self – defense . Putting it in the statute books , in plain black – and – white , makes it clear to  the judiciary (especially with Florida ‘  s judicial activist antics) that people are allowed to defend themselves , and are not , repeat , NOT , required to retreat to do so . —

Holder now adds a high-level federal voice to the effort being pushed by civil rights groups around the country to roll back state laws that allow for individuals wide latitude to respond with force when they are threatened in a public place.

Law’s Impact

Florida’s Stand Your Ground law enables individuals to“meet force with force,” rather than back away. While Zimmerman’s attorneys didn’t cite the law in their defense arguments, local officials said it prevented police from arresting Zimmerman immediately after the shooting because he said he shot Martin in self-defense.

Holder stopped short of pushing for any specific action, federal or otherwise, to challenge the laws. More than 30 states have enacted laws that implement some form of Stand Your Ground legal protection for those who respond with deadly force to threatening situations.

… Eric Holder Must Go !! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,May 24th,2013

.. Eric Holder is beyond redemption as Attorney General . He is a post – partisan and pre – partisan party hack . How he got the job , I

English: Eric Holder, Attorney General Nominee

cannot understand  . However , he did , and it is abundantly clear .

.. He must go .

.. He should offer his resignation  .

.. If he does not , POTUS should fire him .

.. if POTUS does not fire him , Congress should impeach him . Then , the Senate should and must try him and convict him of the charges theirein . As a result , he would then be removed from office . Hopefully , he would be then be banned from public office for good . One can hope .

… In case you wonder why , this snippet from NBCSnooze proves my point …

 

.. Attorney General Eric Holder signed off on a controversial search warrant that identified Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator” in violations of the Espionage Act and authorized seizure of his private emails, a law enforcement official told NBC News on Thursday .

.. The disclosure of the attorney general’s role came as President Barack Obama, in a major speech on his counterterrorism policy, said Holder had agreed to review Justice Department guidelines governing investigations that involve journalists.

.. Rosen, who has not been charged in the case, was nonetheless the target of a search warrant that enabled Justice Department investigators to secretly seize his private emails after an FBI agent said he had “asked, solicited and encouraged … (a source) to disclose sensitive United States internal documents and intelligence information.”

.. Obama’s comments follow a firestorm of criticism that has erupted over disclosures that in separate investigations of leaks of classified information, the Justice Department had obtained private emails that Rosen exchanged with a source and the phone records of Associated Press reporters.
