What Are We Doing To Ourselve?
The two recent events most important to America’s future had nothing to do with health care or the economy. They had everything to do with our ability – more accurately, our willingness – to defend ourselves from enemies that want us dead. The two recent events most important to America’s future had nothing to do with health care or the economy. They had everything to | Read More »
Eric Holder, the new Gil Garcetti
When O.J. Simpson nearly decapitated his wife and killed Ronald Goldman, the event happened in Brentwood, a very affluent area of Los Angeles. The subsequent circus trial and the nearly irrational acquittal of Simpson was made possible only by the decision of the Los Angeles District Attorney Gil Garcetti who, for politically correct reasons that only he could have understood, moved the trial to downtown | Read More »
LOOK WHAT OBAMA’S DISHING OUT THIS THANKSGIVING
Barack Obama is serving sitting duck this Thanksgiving, featuring the raw meat of Bush and Cheney Administration officials and CIA officers, offered up on a platter to his far left base. Stewing in the same juices of this cold dish will be the citizens of New York, the police officers charged with their protection, and the safety of all the American people . I am | Read More »
Questions for Military Lawyers Re: KSM
As a conservative, I am a strong believer in following the Constitution. My political philosophy derives from following a strict interpretation of the Constitution. The rule of law is paramount. This way of thinking should also apply to interpreting how to view the prosecution of terrorist KSM. Since I am not an attorney — and have little knowledge of military law — I have important | Read More »
Rush to Judgment?
Words: 630 The Obama Administration, in the person of Eric Holder, Attorney General, doesn’t want Americans to rush to judgment on the terrorist acts of Major Hasan of Fort Hood, yet is launching an unprecedented onslaught upon Americans’ Second Amendment rights, using the very same attack as justification. Holder wants new federal authority to prohibit any person on the Federal Watch List (reported to be | Read More »
Why KSM is getting a show trial?
Remember, everything is about Obama’s legacy. Nothing else. After all the legal wrangling, Obama may very well be out of office by the time any civilian trial is concluded. Holder did not tell Sen. Graham that KSM would be re-imprisoned. He said that Congress would not allow KSM to "be released in THIS country." Obama could be accused of biasing any jury pool with his | Read More »
Eric Holder – The Joker Redux – Judicial Gamesmanship At Country’s Expense.
Fooled ya again…seems to be the mantra of the Eric Holder Justice Department. Holder tried more ACLU bait and switch on the Senate Judiciary Committee today in his testimony, telling the Senators that “we need not cower in the face of the enemy”. If our experience with the Obama administration and his Attorney General is any example, then we had better worry plenty. Holder held | Read More »
TODD: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed – can you understand why it is offensive to some for this terrorist to get all the legal privileges of any American citizen? OBAMA: I don’t think it will be offensive at all when he’s convicted and when the death penalty is applied to him. TODD: But having that kind of confidence of a conviction – I mean one of the | Read More »
Coincidence? You Decide!
Let’s start with the fact that the Obama Administration is being pummeled over its refusal to call the Fort Hood Murders an act of terrorism. Of course, the simple truth is that they can’t. To do that would be to admit that, after eight years of safety under George Bush, In less than one year under Barack Obama we have suffered a major terrorist attack | Read More »
Oba-Mao Says It All… Barry’s Sheets Are Getting Pulled.
What have the Chicoms seen about Barry Hussein that the moon-eyed crowd here, those that are left, haven’t been able to get through their observedly addled craniums? Of course, in China they are used to a very heavy-handed government approach to life in general, so Mr. Obama really looks like the inexperienced lightweight that he is. If he thinks he is going to negotiate anything | Read More »
Just Who Is Obama Working For?
It can’t be the American people…WE didn’t ask that the most virulently dangerous terrorists on earth be brought to American soil, so that they could be defended at the bar of our courts by Marxist ACLU attorneys and given rights that should be reserved only for citizens of this country. Eric Holder and associates have a lot to answer for. Meanwhile, the Osama–whoops slip of | Read More »
Holder DOJ: Whites Will Only Vote for Blacks If They Are Democrats
“But the Voting Rights Act has, sadly, become little more than a tool for political hacks to hide behind race in a quest to promote liberal ideology and the Democrat Party.” In the convoluted world of the Voting Rights Act, about which Chief Justice Roberts famously said, “It is a sordid business, this divvying up by race…” (see LULAC v. Perry, 548 U.S. 399 (2006)), | Read More »
Lifting State Secrets – Call For Action
So, now that Holder and Obama have lifted the heavy hand of secrecy, only in the case of ‘national security’, and with the comment from the ACLU that previous use of such secrecy was to, “stymie legitimate cases against government misconduct,” I am calling for the Justice Department to uncover, to unseal and to release the hidden case housed in the fourth circuit court system | Read More »
The CIA is Not Your Dog. Do Not Wag It.
How badly has this healthcare plan debate gone for the Obama Amatueristration? So badly that they had to start making noises about arresting Dick Cheney. Well, they haven’t sunk far enough down in the polls to go that far, but they all of a sudden decided that NOW! Was the perfect time to take up the issue of CIA interrogations of suspected terrorists. CNN describes the coming witch-hunt.
Attorney General Eric Holder has asked federal prosecutor John Durham to examine whether CIA interrogations of suspected terrorists were illegal, the Justice Department announced Monday.
The move came as senior administration officials said President Obama had OK’d a special interrogation unit to be housed within the FBI, and as a redacted CIA inspector general’s report on interrogation methods was made public for the first time.
This, of course, is the same Attorney General Eric Holder who previously told us the following.
‘It would be unfair to prosecute dedicated men and women working to protect America for conduct that was sanctioned in advance by the Justice Department.” –Attorney General Eric Holder, April 2009 (HT: Wall Street Journal.)

Panetta vs Holder – I know which one my money is on!
From the diaries by Erick. The “move on” President has announced he’s ready to “look back”. President Barack Obama has approved creation of a new, special terrorism-era interrogation unit to be supervised by the White House, a top aide said Monday, pushing further distancing his administration from Bush administration detainee policies. The new unit does not mean the CIA is now out of the interrogation | Read More »
