Judge Blasts DOJ, Threatens Sanctions For Lying About Holding Off On Immigration Actions: “Like An Idiot, I Believed You”

  Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. I’m wondering how far the Obama admin is going to push this judge… A federal judge sharply scolded a Justice Department attorney at a hearing on President Obama’s immigration executive actions, suggesting that the administration misled him on a key part of the program — and that he fell for it, “like an idiot.” The testy court hearing was held Thursday in Texas by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen. The judge suggested he could order sanctions against the administration if he finds they indeed misrepresented the facts. At issue is whether the DOJ misled […]

Eric Holder Used Fake Names On Official Government Email Accounts

  Hat/Tip to Newsmax. No, it’s not a private email server, he was using phony names on his official DOJ email account. Was it for security reasons, or was he up to no good? At this point in this administration, I don’t think there’s too many people out there who can trust this man. Outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder has maintained several government email accounts under aliases, according to Politico. Revelations that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a personal email account, rather than one maintained by the Department of State, for government business has raised concerns by lawmakers responsible […]

Pssst, @MADDOnline: White House Ordering Border Patrol To Release Drunk Drivers, “Allow Them To Go On Their Way”

Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Someone ought to alert Mothers Against Drunk Drivers because the Obama Administration is seeing fit to let drunk drivers “go their way” as long as they’re in the country illegally. The Obama administration has ordered federal agents responsible for protecting one of the nation’s busiest and most crime-infested regions near Mexico to stop apprehending drunk drivers, according to an internal government memo that also concedes an officer that elects to detain them is “acting within the course and scope of his employment.” Obtained by Judicial Watch this week, the notice is titled “Enforcement Options […]

Judge Accuses Justice Department Of Committing Fraud In Whistle Blower Case

    Hat/Tip to Cardigan at  Judge Francis Allegra is accusing seven government lawyers of obstructing justice after an official intimidated a witness in the trial. He has actually banned the accused lawyers from his courtroom, in this case. Watch the video:   From any neutral viewpoint, it’s a big and serious story when a federal judge (appointed by Clinton) accuses seven Justice Department attorneys of fraud in a whistleblower case. In essence, the judge is alleging the worst sorts of ethical violations–possibly criminal–against the very government attorneys who are supposed to protect the public’s interest. In a newly […]

Sharyl Attkisson Testifies: DOJ ‘Bullied And Threatened’ Her For Telling Truth

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Sharyl Attkisson rose to fame, in the journalist’s world, anyway, as a tough-as-nails, call it down the middle, let the story lead her to the truth, Investigative Journalist. She’s done stories on government and its various administrations – both Democrat AND Republican throughout her entire 30+ year career. And the left was fine with that, when it was the GOP she was digging dirt up on, but since 2008, the push back by the thin-skinned Obama administration and their sycophants in the Main Stream Media shows they’ve no tolerance for any such reporting. Attkisson […]

DOJ Tried To Suppress CBS’ Sharyl Attkinsson’s Story On Holder’s Lies About Fast And Furious

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Sharyl Attkisson covers this in her book, “Stonewalled: My Fight For the Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation and Harassment in Obama’s Washington,” and the lengths this administration goes to in order to suppress the truth. Via Breitbart: After CBS News aired a damaging report which suggested Attorney General Eric Holder had lied to Congress, the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) press director worked overtime to suppress reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s story and called her CBS superiors to complain. Attkisson published a blockbuster story on October 3, 2011, based on documents which demonstrated that AG Holder was […]

Aid to Eric Holder Allegedly and Mistakenly Contacted Darrell Issa’s Office to Conspire to Undermine Darrell lssa

If the following report is true, there are few depths to which the Obama administration will not go.  That, and the level of incompetence is quite high, and quite helpful to us. For a “fake” investigation of a “fake” IRS targeting scandal, the DOJ sure see’s the need to undermine it.  That’s why a DOJ staffer mistakenly contacted Darrell Issa’s office in order to gain their cooperation in undermining Darrell Issa.  Steve, from America’s Watchtower, has more… Darrell Issa believes the call was meant to go to Elijah Cumming’s office. Surprise, surprise! Here is more: The aide, Brian Fallon, is a […]

Eric “The Red” Holder Doing His Part To Redistribute Wealth

The Department of (In)Justice under the leadership of Eric Holder has been busy this year suing and obtaining mega-settlements from the Wall Street banks for their roles in subprime mortgage-backed bubble the broke in 2008. The latest case against Bank of America. The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has the story: “Bank of America failed to make accurate and complete disclosure to investors and its illegal conduct kept investors in the dark,” declared a government official in a Department of Justice press release announcing yesterday’s record settlement in which Bank of America agreed to fork over $16.65 billion to settle charges it […]

#Ferguson: What do we know so far?

I’ve been waiting to discuss the events that have occurred in Ferguson, MO.  Like any emotionally charged situation, there are claims and counter-claims.   I tend to wait a bit and summarize what is known.  So, here is what we know about the situation in Ferguson. The “victim” in this situation is Michael Brown, aged 18.  Mr. Brown was seen on video robbing a local store. Here is a video, from FOX News, shown at the linked DC article… Here is more footage, from CNN… And, we also now know that this video was available for some time, but had not […]

Voter Fraud Exposed if Florida, DOJ Sues to Keep it Going

I’ve covered voter fraud before, and that Eric Holder intentionally stopped enforcement of the Motor Voter requirement that states purge the rolls of ineligible or deceased voters.  I speculated why several years ago… And, in the Motor Voter Law, there is a provision mandating that deceased and otherwise ineligible voters be purged from the rolls.  However, the DOJ has no intention of enforcing it… For background on what AG Holder is up to (or not up to), take a look at this from Pajamas Media. Motor Voter struck an important balance — it sought to increase voter registration, as well […]

Supreme Court Orders Obama Admin to Respond to Christian Homeschooling Family’s Appeal

The Supreme Court has ordered the governemnt to respond to the appeal of a family of Christian homeschoolers that orignially was granted asylum, but the eric Ho;dre’s DOJ appealed. Here are some former posts on that subject. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals Rules That Christian Home Schooling Family Should be Deported Obama Administration Attempting to Deport German Home School Christian Family Here is current situation… WASHINGTON – The United States Supreme Court has ordered Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice to respond to a petition to appeal from a Christian homeschooling family that is fighting deportation to […]

Feds to Investigate Alleged Voter Fraud in Florida

Voter Fraud Update: It appears that letters are being sent to voters, informing them that they are not registered to vote, and they should stay home.  Click Orlando has more… Voters are getting letters that look like they are from local elections offices, questioning their citizenship. But Local 6 has learned the letters are fake, and they are going out across Central Florida and many other parts of the state. Officials on Monday said voters who had received the letters thus far are white, registered Republicans who consistently vote in elections. “This is a major concern,” said Seminole County Supervisor of Elections […]

DOJ Used Media Matters as a Propaganda Arm: Anyone Surprised?

We all know what Media Matters is.  It’s a Soros funded smear machine meant to spread regressive propaganda, as well as attack anyone that opposed the regressive agenda.  Then, we the Daily Caller obtained emails between Media Matters personell and DOJ, is wasn’t at all surprised. Here is an excerpt from the DC… 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. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request. (RELATED: TheDC’s complete coverage of Media […]

If I Could Be Dictator Instead Of Obama

I don’t think there is much doubt that President Barack Obama wants to be a dictator. He has behaved very dictatorially ever since he was sworn into office. He started by forcing through the Affordable Care Act the people didn’t want. He ignored orders from a federal judge on his moratorium on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, he intentionally makes appointments of his czars when the Senate is out of session and can not approve his selections as the constitution envisioned, he tells his DOJ not to enforce laws he doesn’t agree with and, he uses fiat powers of […]

Parallel Universe Alert: Department of Justice Cooperating with (ACORN’S) Project Vote

This is one of those times that I have to pull out the Parallel Universe theme.  Apparently, the DOJ thinks it’s just great to cooperate with the organization formerly known as ACORN.  As you all will recall, ACORN went out of business (kind of), but most all of their affiliate organizations opened the next day with a different name on the door.  Project Vote is apparently one of the affiliates that changed their names once the parent organization went “poof.”   Project Vote is rather infamous for registering tens of thousands of non-existent voters over the past several years, so it might be […]

Documents Show that Government used Fast and Furious to Justify More Gun Control

If you think back to 2009, you’d recall that we were being told that the violence in Mexico was being fueled by american guns.  Of course, as we later found, that this was at least partially true-because our own DOJ sent them there.  Yesterday, CBS stated that they had documents that showed that the ATF was acting on this “crisis” in order to increase regulations… ATF officials didn’t intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun […]

Obama Pressuring Banks to Give High Risk Loans to Poor and Minorites


As we learn more about the financial meltdown of 2008, it becomes increasingly apparent that one of the main causes for this economic disaster was government policy that forced banks to extend loans to those people who were unable to pay those back. Government agents put pressure on banks and government banking institutions like Freddie/Franny to give loans to people who under normal circumstances would be unable to pay back these loans and who were especially unable to protect themselves from the exposure to risk that these loans entailed. Misguided government policies ambushed innocent people who believed the dream that […]

This Week Rep. Issa Untaps The Stink At DOJ

Finally Representative Darre Issa’s Gun Runner hearings will start. In case you’re not familiar with the Gun Runner case, let me explain. Several months ago some brainiacs at the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) devised a sting operation with the intent to expose the entire gun smuggling organization operating between the US and Mexico. The name of ATF’s sting was Operation Fast and Furious. ATF solicited a few gun dealers in Arizona to sell automatic weapons with traceable chips hidden in the gun stocks to suspected arms dealers. After over a thousand weapons were delivered into Mexico, things started going wrong. Some these arms […]
