” In the spirit of citizen journalism overriding mainstream media filters, Wednesday, May 1 will be “Everybody Blog About #Pigford” Day. All journalists, bloggers, and inspired writers are invited to contribute their thoughts about the Pigford scandal–one of Andrew Breitbart’s most important and passionate journalistic causes.
Whether through an official platform, or social media, you can make your voice heard–and now is the time to do it. After years of media denial, the Pigford story was featured on the front page of the New York Times last Friday. But many mainstream media outlets, and politicians of both parties, still refuse to acknowledge it.
May 1st is a crucial date because corrupt farmers’ settlements for women and Hispanic farmers are STILL open –the claims form is at FarmerClaims.gov–but the deadline for these schemes is May 1st.
Right now: start to get educated on Pigford. There’s a ton of material on Breitbart.com and other places. Google and you’ll see.”

” The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has immediately started fundraising
off of Eric Holder’s partisan letter to
Pennsylvania demanding information about the
Keystone State’s voter ID program. “
A little common sense from the bench is most welcome .
” Poor Eric Holder, he cannot catch a break. His latest loss come via a Clinton-appointed federal Judge who ruled that there is nothing in federal voting laws to prevent a state from identifying voters who may not be US citizens even if its close to an election.
The obviously racist judge said federal laws are designed to block states from removing eligible voters close to an election. He said they are not designed to block voters who should have never been allowed to cast ballots in the first place. “
“ At least four Democrats say they will vote Thursday in favor of placing Attorney General
Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.Democratic Reps. John Barrow (Ga.), Collin Peterson (Minn.) and Nick Rahall (W.Va.) will all
vote in favor of contempt in addition to Rep. Jim Matheson (Utah) when the measure comes to
the House floor on Thursday. “
” President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege today is a bit like the kickoff for the NFL regular season. It doesn’t end the Fast and Furious scandal; it just takes it to another level. Everything so far was the pre-season. Now people will start to pay attention.
(Read my review of the book Fast and Furious here for a great primer on the scandal.)
A president doesn’t assert executive privilege lightly. It is a relic from the powers of the king. Some things were not for parliament’s eyes, such as national security statecraft. This new phase of the Fast and Furious scandal begins with Americans who had paid no attention to the scandal hearing the news today and asking, “what are they trying to hide?” “
The new phase might possibly include members of the old media asking why the Most Transparent Administration in History, isn’t. Or, it might see them going all out to defend their president.
Below is one of an on-going collection of updates that PJmedia’s Bryan Preston is providing via the Tatler .
If you are interested in the showdown that is brewing between the legislative and the executive branches check it out and go back often .
” Update : In the landmark case that spells out presidential executive privilege, United States vs Nixon (1974) , the Supreme Court found that executive privilege pertains to communications directly with the president, and otherwise limited the scope of executive privilege.
Today’s move by the White House
implies either that Fast and Furious reaches
directly into the Oval Office, or that the White
House is challenging the Nixon ruling. Either
way, today’s assertion is a major escalation of the scandal. “
Once again we bear witness to the ” most open , honest , transparent and ethical ” administration ever . Read the quote below and guess whose words they are .
“There’s been a tendency on the part of this administration to try to hide behind executive privilege every time there is something a little shaky that’s taking place, and I think the administration would be best served by coming clean on this.”
Give up ? It could come from any number of pols these days but it actually dates from 2007 . Now what was happening then ? Was a certain junior senator from Illinois gearing up for a presidential run ? Why yes indeed .
– Sen. Barack Obama (D – Illinois), 2007.”
The depth of the hypocrisy that courses through the Leftist veins seems to be limitless .
So it would seem , according to legal minds better than ours that in order to invoke executive privilege Obama would have to admit that he had knowledge of ” Fast & Furious ” . We wonder what our resident “constitutional law ” president is planning .
” This morning, the White House asserted executive privilege over documents related to Operation ‘Fast and Furious,’ perAttorney General Eric Holder’s request. Following this move,Judge Napolitano warned that we may be on the “precipice of a constitutional confrontation between the executive branch, the White House, and the Congress.”
Executive privilege, in its definition, provides protection over communications with the president himself, according to the judge. The letter sent by Eric Holder requesting executive privilege does not detail a discussion with the president, but Judge Napolitano said, “The implication is there.” “
start stop here
As reported here , here , here and here this administration leaks like a sieve and continually risks the lives of assets and national security to bolster it’s re-election efforts , while all retreat to an attitude of high dudgeon that anyone could suspect them of such chicanery . LOL
Washington Times : Obama , Leaker in Chief
“President Obama takes umbrage at the idea that a spate of leaks of highly classified national-security information is somehow purposefully intended to bolster his leadership credentials. His resistance to an independent investigation will only make things worse for him. The Obama White House is leaking like a sieve. Trying to cover it up will only make the scandal bigger.
On Friday, Mr. Obama took the charges of selective leaks head-on: “The notion that my White House would purposely release classified national-security information is offensive,” he said. “It’s wrong, and people I think need to have a better sense of how I approach this office and how the people around me here approach this office.” His protestations carry little credibility. On the previous day, the White House rejected a bipartisan call by leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees to appoint a special counsel to investigate the leaks.”
If you live in Wisconsin – VOTE TODAY
With the US Dept of
Obama Justice on the scene to facilitate er , watch for fraud this will be close . The dead will rise undoubtedly as will bus loads of out of staters voters . Make sure your vote counts .
“The U.S. Department of Justice has sent poll monitors to Milwaukee–and only Milwaukee, where Democrats need to run up the numbers in order to overcome a large deficit in the polls. When Republican Mark Kirk spoke about the need to protect the integrity of the vote in urban areas during his 2010 U.S. Senate race, Democrats accused him of racism.
Turnout will be the key to victory in the statewide recall election, in which not only Walker but also Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch and three Republican senators are being challenged. The recall election was once seen as an important battle over the power of public employee unions, but the unions’ favored candidate lost the Democratic primary to Barrett, and Walker’s reforms to collective bargaining have saved jobs and money for the state and local governments.”
Yes turnout is key . And if turnout can be kept to just the residents and the living Scott Walker should do fine but with Holder’s voting team present nothing can be taken for granted , and let us not forget the union’s capacity for chicanery . Be vigilant my friends .
Now this man/woman/group has the courage and spine that our politicians seem to lack .
“Eric Holder has been selected as Harvard Law School’s Class Day Speaker. I don’t remember if there was a Class Day when I was there, but I would not have attended anyway for reasons already known to readers.
Holder will be greeted with posters protesting Holder’s stalling of the congressional investigation into Fast and Furious. The protest is being run by student(s) behind a website called Harvard Law Unbound.”
The DC Caller reports
” In a shocking development in the Operation Fast and Furious investigation, documents show Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents allowed grenade parts to walk in addition to guns.
The emails also show Obama administration officials acknowledging that they may lose track of grenades but would still be able to accomplish their original objective even if the grenades explode.
According to an internal email that was provided to Congress by the Department of Justice and first reported by CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson — who’s been the media’s most dogged reporter in tracking down facts on Fast and Furious – ATF began watching accused smuggler Jean Baptiste Kingery’s AK-47 purchases in 2004. In the 2009 internal ATF email, Obama administration officials admitted they believed Kingery was “trafficking them into Mexico.” “
Just Unbelievable !!
What coarse men ,
“President Barack Obama maintains silence on the Brian A. Terry Memorial Act that passed the Democratic-controlled Senate unanimously on Tuesday evening. The Republican-controlled House passed it unanimously in December.
Drug cartel members used guns the Obama administration allowed to fall into their hands via Operation Fast and Furious to murder Terry, a Border Patrol agent, on Dec. 15, 2010.”
Is it too much to ask for justice at Justice ?
May Brian Terry and his family, as well as the hundreds of other victims and their families find peace in the possibility of some measure of truth and justice being brought to light through the tireless efforts of Congressman Issa and the others on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Agent Terry has become the symbol of a government gone rogue. And he’s not the only victim of firearms involved in Operation Fast and Furious.
“This briefing paper and draft contempt report explains the case, to both Members of the Committee and the American people, for holding Attorney General Holder in contempt of Congress,” Issa said in the statement. “In describing the results of the Justice Department’s refusal to cooperate – including the hardships the family of a fallen Border Patrol agent have faced in seeking the truth, and retaliation against agents who blew the whistle on gunwalking – this briefing paper provides the facts, on which decisions will be made.”
“Firearms connected to Operation Fast and Furious were used in the 2010 slaying of the brother of the former Chihuahua state attorney general, according to a U.S. congressional report.
The report said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives traced two of the weapons suspected in the murder of lawyer Mario González Rodríguez, but did not report this fact to the Mexican government until eight months after the tracing. “
HT/ Cry and Howl
This is without doubt the biggest presidential scandal in my lifetime . Watergate , Iran-Contra , Monica Lewinski were embarrassing but no one died as a result . The dinosaur media bootlickers have shown to all where their loyalties lie . Not with truth telling but with advancing the chosen narrative .
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.”
Poll: ” Americans overwhelmingly support Ariz. immigration law, think court should uphold it. “
