Impeach Eric Holder

Impeachment is the only cure for an unethical and extremely partisan US Attorney General. Eric Holder has established himself to be beyond the jurisdiction of American law. This leaves only one solution that is to impeach the Attorney General.

Holder’s leadership of the DOJ fosters a climate of fear among the American public and increasingly Americans feel betrayed by a government that targets its citizens and a Justice Department who disperses out unequal justice and protection under the law.”  What is the case for impeachment? When does the DOJ determine what laws to be enforced?

Congress establishes the laws but Eric Holder arbitrarily exceeds statutory authority as attorney general to interpret or completely ignore statutory law. Speaking recently before Congress, Holder stated, “There is a vast amount of discretion that a president has — and more specifically that an attorney general has, but that discretion has to be used in an appropriate way so that you are acting consistent with the aims of the statute but at the same time making sure that you are acting in a way that is consistent with our values, consistent with the Constitution and protecting the American people.”

Contrary to popular belief, Eric Holder’s subjective values are not the norm of society and his determined position to disregard laws are not consistent with the Constitution or the protection of the American people. What Constitutional predicts grant Holder the ability to use his own value system to determine what laws are to be followed or not? Holder grants upon himself and Obama a divinity to rule over the American subjects. Discarding adherence to his sworn oath, Eric Holder continues to use biased racial perceptions of America to discriminate based on race and ethnicity.

Recently, at an Al Sharpton National Action Network Conference, Holder used his platform to attack his political opponents in Congress and impugn the actions of the Congressmen as durative racial animosity towards him and Obama. A brazen Holder was upset over his perceived ill treatment the day before when he testified at the House Judiciary Committee. In a tacit threat to Rep. Louie Gohmert, Holder angrily replied, “You don’t want to go there, buddy.” “You don’t want to go there, OK?” Given Holder’s veil threat, should Rep Gohmert expect an anal examination by the powerful IRS?

On the contrary, it was Holder who was arrogant and disrespectful to the House Judiciary Committee; yet, carrying the water of an innocent victim, Holder dashed away offended that members of Congress dare ask him, the almighty attorney general, questions. At the conference, Holder took the opportunity in clear coordination with the White House to rebuke the Republican Congressman when he exclaimed, “If you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee, it had nothing to do with me, forget that, what attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”

Former Attorney General’s Ashcroft, Gonzoles, Meese, and Mitchell would be amused at Holder’s fallacious diatribe. Albert Gonzoles, the first Hispanic AG resigned from office after seven months of Congressional battering over the lawful firing of DOJ attorneys. John Mitchell took a thrashing during the Watergate hearings where he was subsequently convicted and sent to prison.

Clearly, Holder is on the campaign trail evicting the worse kind of racial fear mongering in American to draw out Democrat base voters for the upcoming election. He states that he didn’t use the race card but his implication was understood. The “Race Card” is all the White House and the Democrat party have left to campaign on since they are void of any legislative and foreign policy achievements.

Without a doubt, President Obama nominated Eric Holder as US Attorney General based on Holder’s record of partisan and controversial record during the Clinton Administration pardoning of four Puerto Rican FLAN terrorist and the felon tax evader Mar Rich. Holder demonstrated that he was a strong progressive team player and he would have Obama’s back.

Eric Holder is a progressive zealot in symbiotic cohesion with Obama. He expresses that Americans are cowards in confronting racism but often he demonstrates his own bigotry. As attorney general, Eric Holder picks sides and turns a blind eye to corruption as long as it benefits his political party and Obama. Holder refused to prosecute two Black Panthers who were charged with voter intimation when video evidence clearly demonstrated the crime. He turned his back on immigration enforcement and he arduously uses the DOJ to fight common sense voter ID laws. These two efforts are pure political strategies to benefit Democrats in future elections. Eric Holder abuses his oath of office to allow massive voter fraud.

Holder’s indifference to illegal immigration imperils the national security of the United States and he makes the absurd correlation that illegal immigration is a civil right. That would suggest he tolerates an “open boarders’ rule of law inconsistent with statutory law. His reasoning is ridiculous. Where is it in the US Constitution that grants illegal immigration as a “civil right”? What other country in the world offers amnesty to illegal immigrates as a “civil right”?

Although the US Supreme Court has ruled voter ID lawful, Holder is suing states that have attempted to implement voter ID. Holder views the voter ID law will keep poor minorities from voting, yet he has no empirical evidence to support his claim, while there is much evidence that without voter ID, voter fraud does occur.

As the US Attorney General, Eric Holder has stonewalled Congressional scrutiny and oversight of governmental abuses. In the Fast and Furious scandal, Holder was found in “Contempt of Congress” for his stonewalling and obstruction to provide subpoenaed documents. How quickly the public forgets but Americans must remember that U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered by a ‘Fast and Furious” operation weapon.

Eric Holder authorized an investigation of Fox News journalist James Rosen. When the investigation was brought to light, Holder allegedly committed perjury before Congress when they asked him if he was aware that his DOJ investigated reporters. Holder stated, “With regard to potential prosecution of the press for the disclosure of material, that is not something that I have ever been involved, heard of, or would think would be a wise policy,” Later it was learned that Holder indeed knew of the investigation of the Fox News journalist.

The IRS has targeted conservative groups depriving them of their first amendment rights. A political Obama donor was selected to head up the DOJ IRS investigation. Congress is frustrated with IRS stonewalling and its failure to provide the subpoena documents. Not one of the groups targeted by the IRS has yet to be interviewed. Holder’s investigation into the corrupt actions of the Obama Administration is feckless and purposely designed to protect the Obama administration at all cost. No wonder why Holder refused Congress call for a Special Prosecutor.

As Americans increasingly feel threaten by their own government and fear Holder’s partisan execution of the law, the need to restore faith and confidence in the Department of Justice has never been greater. Only through the impeachment of Eric Holder can government begin to restore the American judicial principles of equal justice for all!

  1. Well documented, thorough argument Colonel, there’s only one problem…timing. We stand to correct nothing if we do not have the means in Congress by the number of seats in each house we control.

    You want Holder Impeached…then we need a Congress in our court, don’t we?

    We all need to spread that word among our networks of friends and colleagues within the very apathetic American voting public…that we need to lite a forest fire under their collective asses.
