Some things we’re not allowed to know until after the election
If you’re wondering who the next Attorney General of the United States might be, following the departure of Eric “Stonewall” Holder, you’ll have to wait until after the elections. Senate Democrats demanded the White House keep the name under wraps until they drag themselves past the 2014 midterms.

Fast forward to the current Texas Attorney General’s race, and | Read More »

Eric Holder’s Biggest Fan
The eruption of alleged malfeasance by the Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder should not be a surprise to anyone.
