There will be a special prosecutor and Holder will be gone – either by his own resignation (to protect TheOne) or TheOne will throw him under the bus. But Holder is the worst AG in my memory and he has to be held accountable. This is his department and they are his underlings.
The whole plan here was to discredit 2nd Amendment supporters. Does anyone remember Mrs. Brady’s comment after meeting with TheOne? To paraphrase Mrs. Brady (whose husband James Brady was severely wounded in the Reagan assassination attempt) Obama told her that “we’re going to change these laws but it’s slow going and we’re working UNDER THE RADAR.”
The only thing they’ve accomplished is shaming and disgracing our nation.
Last week, on Hannity’s radio show he discussed a recent column by Jeffery Lord/The American Spectator, called American Tipping Point. In it, Lord discusses Malcolm Gladwell’s book Tipping Point and makes comparisons to America’s tipping points at different times in our history and the rise of conservatism and the Tea Party.
Lord says that: Thanks to the Tea Party movement, Conservatism is on the verge of a major victory that dwarfs the technical and actual realities of whatever the details of the resulting deficit deal passed last night. Yes, there is a long, long way to go. But the idea that America doesn’t, in fact, have to be governed for eternity as a debtor nation with a mammoth, out-of-control, ever-expanding government is winning the day. It is tipping the balance with increasing decisiveness against an idea that has become so much a part of conventional wisdom that even some conservatives, startlingly including, inexplicably, the Wall Street Journal, have displayed the wobblies at the thought of confronting the Leviathan. The WSJ’s attacks yesterday against Jim DeMint, Michele Bachmann and Sean Hannity, saying “sooner or later the GOP had to give up the hostage” — follows another editorial in which the paper railed against Tea Party members as “hobbits.” The paper, sounding like cranky British Tories in 1775 Boston rather than the bold, forward-looking paper that championed the much-derided ideas of Ronald Reagan, wildly bought into the liberal notion that the Tea Party from Hobbitville is somehow holding the government hostage, instead of the other way around. In fact Big Government liberalism has spent decades holding and trying to hold the average American hostage to all manner of outrageous tax rates, taxes and regulations on everything from capital gains to sex (in Harry Reid’s Nevada) to soda, SUVs and poker.
Lord chronicles the rise of conservatism from Senator Robert Taft’s strident opposition to FDR’s mega New Deal in the 30’s, through William F. Buckley to the great Ronald Reagan to Mark Levin’s landmark best seller and Tea Party bible, Liberty and Tyranny and how all these little, or sometimes large events, are causing a tipping point in American history. He says that conservatism is spreading almost like a virus: in Gladwell’s vocabulary, “connectors” — “people with a particular and rare set of social gifts” who have the ability to “spread” an idea like an epidemic, a Tipping Point is in the works. Henry Regnery, for example, published and made a star of Buckley, who befriended Reagan who inspired Limbaugh, who was befriended by Buckley and placed on the cover of National Review, with Limbaugh in turn aiding Hannity and Levin and Levin’s book inspiring the Tea Party etc., etc.
Reading Lord, once again gave me hope. And reminded me that in Beck’s words, we are not alone. Most of America is conservative to some degree. Most of Americans want to be or remain at least, middle class and we see that vanishing under Obama’s ideology. Most of America finds communism (call it socialism or European socialism but it’s still a form of communism) to be antithetical to the fundamentals of our beliefs and our founding. And most of America will fight it.
I hope they don’t think for a minute that we will forget being called racists, nazis, homophobes, Hobbits and terrorists. We will not. The real revolution will occur on November 6th, 2012 – bloodless, gunless and in a voting booth. They are being fore warned and to disregard the tipping point signs will be at their own peril.
It’s a must-read by Lord and I hope you will take the time to read it.
Last week, Eric Holder issued subpoenas to go after News Corp. – the parent company of the Wall Street Journal and Fox News. This isn’t news to anyone who reads my blog because you are well read and well educated on current events. Unlike some of the liberals I hear call Rush and Levin, we know what’s going on and we know the actors.
Holder is holder-ing out on Rep. Darrell Issa’s (R – CA) congressional investigation of the Fast and Furious/gun running fiasco.
This is a big story. There are reports of DOJ attorneys at Fast and Furious meetings with other very upper level ATF guys. But who’s covering it? Fox. Who is Holder now investigating? Fox. Connect the dots – what’s the message from Holder?
Now it seems to me that Eric Holder knew about this gun running crap and so did Obama. Remember Obama’s words regarding gun regulations, back in March, to Mrs. Jim Brady – “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
And those processes are what? More executive orders, more regulations from unelected regulatory czars and letting guns walk over the border to make a case for more gun regulations.
I’m gonna say it again – This is a big story and the MSM is not covering it – on purpose. They are choosing not to cover this because of definite harm to Holder and probable harm it will do to Obama.
But the ends justify the means to the Marxists in our government. Let no one forget – LET NO ONE FORGET – that the means was the murder of at least one (and possibly another) American law enforcement agent named Brian Terry.
Wasserman Schultz released the following statement:
“It is with great disappointment that I call on Representative Anthony Weiner to resign. The behavior he has exhibited is indefensible and Representative Weiner’s continued service in Congress is untenable. This sordid affair has become an unacceptable distraction for Representative Weiner, his family, his constituents and the House – and for the good of all, he should step aside and address those things that should be most important – his and his family’s well-being.”
Well, I’d say his days are numbered. And personally, I hate to see him out of office. I think he’d be a real gift to the Republicans for the next 18 months. Pelosi will be the next one to issue a statement and by Sunday night, he’ll have resigned – or at least I’m betting so.
And more at Mediaite.com from Andrew Breitbart on Fox and Friends today. I just don’t see how he can make it through the weekend … or through his marriage, for that matter.
Seriously, even democrats have to agree that trolling the internet for underage girls is unacceptable and illegal.
In the words of some late night host, this weiner story is like a gift that keeps on giving. It just gets better and better.
If you watched his press conference (the one where Breitbart was the opening act) he said he couldn’t say with “certitude” if any of the females he tweeted with were all adults. He had to take those people at their words, he said.
Delaware police have questioned a young (17 year old) lady regarding any online contacts she might have had with the great and honorable congressman.
After days of being vilified by the congressman and the left wing media, Breitbart gets his vindication and his moment to give it back to the “journalists” who were complicit in this whole affair.
I can’t tell you how happy I am to have AB on our side.
I keep hearing conservative talkers like Hannity, Levin and Breitbart himself, feeling sorry for this guy. I can’t muster much sympathy for him (his family, yes.) We’ve all seen Weiner at his worst, most vicious on news shows, and at his most arrogant. His crying today was because he got caught: because he was so stupid to keep lying and not own up to this in the beginning.
The first 2 rules: Admit fully and admit early. The moral: The cover-up is always worse than the crime.
Remember the nerdiest kid you ever knew in high school? He’s the one who never could get a date and people (girls especially) with compassionate hearts were always nice to him to make up for the bullies who tormented on him. He’s the one who always got picked last for teams in PE class. He worked the concession stand at prom because he had no date and he couldn’t dance for crap, anyway. He was president of the science club. He was scrawny, little and awkward. He did well academically, but he just never fit in with anyone. Teachers loved him. Coaches didn’t know he existed. He’s a fast talker who thinks he’s really witty, when he’s just really overcompensating for his lack of popularity.
In a nutshell, he is Richard Norvik (from Peggy Sue Got Married.)
Weiner's high school and current twitter picture/mediaite.com
What is the greatest aphrodisiac in the world?
Power, and money comes with power.
So here we have this scrawny, nerdy Anthony Weiner who never fit in with this allegedly big twitter following of pretty young ladies. It’s his revenge from his high school days, his vindication that he’s not such a goofy kid, after all. His lingering feelings of teenage inadequacy are soothed by all the pretty girls who follow him on twitter and a few young interns in congress who hang on his every word.
He’s reliving his high school years by (allegedly) tweeting what he thinks is a sexy picture of himself to some young college student.
Read this really enlightening story from the New Republic (well known for its leftwing bent) about the lecherous congressmen we elect and Weiner is one of the stars of the article.
This has gone from accusing Breitbart’s site for breaking the story to vilifying the young lady as a stripper – this according to CNN today.
This guy is so fugly! Why would any woman find him interesting, let alone sexy? But you know what they say about men with big noses . . .
And he tells NBC that he can’t confirm or deny that the picture is of – mmm – him, but tell me folks, don’t you know if you’ve ever put a picture of yourself like that online? He’s claiming that the photo might have been manipulated — but again, don’t you need a photo of a man in his jockeys to doctor to begin with? So he put up a picture of himself in his underpanties and now he’s claiming that it was photoshopped?
Photoshopped to show an impressive (to some, I guess) erection? LMAO
Oh geeeze! I’m starting with gutter stuff. Sorry but this story just begs for it.

This guy just will not answer the question. And if he thinks it’s going to go away, he’s sadly mistaken. His lawyering up and refusal to give a simple yes or no answer is just going to make things worse. And his refusals make him look guilty. How much more stupid can he be?
