This is Holder's idea of protecting us .
” The looming budget sequestration will make Americans less safe, Eric Holder says—and anyone who says otherwise isn’t telling the truth.
“This is something that is going to have an impact on the safety of this country,” the U.S. attorney general told ABC’s Pierre Thomas on Wednesday in a wide-ranging, exclusive interview.
“And anybody that says otherwise is either lying or saying something that runs contrary to the facts,” Holder said.
“The Justice Department is going to lose nine percent of its budget between now and September 30th. We’re going to lose $1.6 billion. There are not going to be as many FBI agents, ATF agents, DEA agents, prosecutors who are going to be able to do their jobs,” Holder said. “They’re going to be furloughed. They’re going to spend time out of their offices, not doing their jobs.” “
How does 2% budget-wide transfer to 9% of Justice’s budget … It’s not like Holder has made us safer anyway … Fast & Furious anyone ?
The notion that the Federal Government stands for justice and fairness for all is absurd . Through bureaucratic appointments and administrative law the entire apparatus has been turned into our worst enemy . It is time to remind them who works for whom .
“The contempt that DOJ Civil Rights Division employees have for southerners manifests in public policy — whether skepticism toward legislative motives in enacting voter ID, or, as I
experienced firsthand, unwillingness to protect
whites in Mississippi who were the victims of racial discrimination by black officials.
If states make the mistake of submitting election changes opposed by the NAACP, such as voter ID, to Gyamfi, these DOJ employees will hunt for evidence that racial bias motivated the change. And they will see racial bias where few do. The biases of the DOJ employees toward southerners, like the one shown in the Facebook
posting, will manifest in concrete DOJ decisions..The biases, for example, will view election
integrity measures to instead be a sinister scheme to return to Jim Crow.
As former Democratic Congressman Artur Davis
said this past weekend at the True the Vote summit, “a driver’s license is not a billy club. A photo ID is not a fire hose.”
“Try this thought experiment: You decide to donate money to Mitt Romney. You want change in the Oval Office, so you engage in your
democratic right to send a check.
Several days later, President Barack Obama, the most powerful man on the planet, singles you out by name. “His campaign brands you a Romney donor, shames you for “betting against America,” and accuses you of having a “less-than-reputable” record. The message from the man who controls the Justice Department (which can indict you), the SEC (which can fine
you), and the IRS (which can audit you), is clear: You made a mistake donating that money.
Are you worried? “
As I’ve been saying , the politicization of the entire Federal Government is now complete . It is our enemy .
” Not every request to the agency, however, is met with such speedy delivery. For instance, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley has yet to receive the agency’s records
on the LightSquared tech scandal despite first requesting the documents nearly one year ago,
on April 27, 2011. LightSquared is billionaire hedge-fund manager Philip Falcone’s broadband
company, which has come under fire for how its technology disrupts GPS signals. ”
The silence from the usual suspects re the suborning (sp?) of government agencies to personal benefit is deafening , no ?
Apple Inc.broke is silence about the
U.S. Department of Justice’s
allegations that it colluded with
publishers over e-book pricing by
calling the allegations “simply not
true.” Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris rebutted the charges Thursday evening.
“The launch of the iBookstore in 2010 fostered innovation and competition, breaking Amazon’s monopolistic grip on the publishing industry,” she said.
Zimmerman family challenges Holder on New Black Panthers, says no arrests ‘based solely on your race’
Department of Justice indeed . It’s all about melatonin .
” Manufactured “ is certainly something that Holder’s DOJ knows all about now , isn’t it ?
Fast and Furious anyone ?
