The Holder - Issa Smackdown

Tyler Durden's picture


This was not your grandfather's hearing. The air was thick with partisanship already but when Darrell Issa began by playing audio of Thomas Perez, assistant attorney general for civil rights and President Barack Obama's nominee to become the next Secretary of Labor, in which he confirms that he is arranging for details relating to the St. Paul case not to be disclosed. "Do you think it's appropriate for someone to -- at a federal level -- to try to keep information out in order to disguise what's actually going on?" Issa asked. "There are a whole variety of reasons why people, why we as a government and Justice Department, decide not to become involved in qui tam cases," Holder replied. Holder and Issa went back and forth until Holder lost it... "It is inappropriate and too consistent with the way in which you conduct yourself as a member of Congress," Holder said. "It is unacceptable. It is shameful."

My latest theory is that IRS-gate and AP-gate are due to Benghazi and to a lesser degree on letting go the connected Saudi suspect from first Boston bombing. The traction in both those cases came from whistle blowers and leaks to the press. Then strangely just days later we get the Feds confessing that they have been blatantly abusing their power. "Give us grief and you'll get audited. Leak something to the press and we'll get your phone number or worse. When NOTHING happens to them for the abuses it will have a chilling effect on people who contemplate ratting the regime out. This is a Chicago thug power demonstation like finding a horse head in bed with you. Remember that the feds volunteered the info on what they were doing in both cases.

"Eric Holder - "I'll look at the request [subpoena] and try to be as responsive as I can.",

Yeah, a couple of things stand out about Holder's reply.  1.  The obvious disdain he implies by treating a congressional subpoena (which is an order) like it is a polite request that he may or may not deem worthy of his attention.  2.  Holder indicates that he hadn't even bothered to read said subpoena, which implies either (another) pass-the-buck lie, or a complete lack of control over his department.

I happen to live just outside of Issa's district, and find him to be a typical political scumbag locally, but I certainly am hoping he actually has some teeth this time.

He's not pushing agendas, he's just trying to push people's buttons.

People constantly confuse (intentionally and unintentionally) trends with aberrations. When you have an aberration it's fixable. 

This binary political thing works so effectively because every step worse can be painted as an aberration as one team is always on hand to claim 'this' particular administration is way out of order suggesting that if you get the other guys in it'll be fixed. Meanwhile, the team on trial can point to the recent past and say 'look at what your guy did!' Goes back and forth forever.

The source of the problem meanwhile escapes unscathed - the source in this case being the office of the AG, not really any particular AG.

Liberals need to be convinced to turn against him en masse. There's a lot of grassroots activism that truthfully presents what's going on but the tv news is so incredibly partisan that it effectively obfuscates everything. Everyone (both sides of the aisle + news) benefits from the partisan theatrics, the only loser is the people.

This US propaganda machine is the best of the best so it's hard to compete with, but shit like this (FOIA request) from the 'transparent' Obama regime needs to be more widely distributed:

I disagree, not creepy and cuts throug the red-blue bullshit.

The problem is not WHO is there, the problem is that there is a THERE to begin with.

An office that holds that much power is anathema to liberty, so no matter who holds the office, it is the office that is the problem.

Most do not care how much power the government has, only that their team calls the shots. James is pointing out the underlying problem.

(If I am reading James correctly.)

This is the point. How often do you see a president scale back the powers their predecssor added to the position? Of course, when their predecessor (as long as they were on the other side) was expanding the office it was oh-so-terrible and unconstitutional.

A couple reasons that I give a bit of time to Issa:
1) if not for his pushing, Benghazi would have been dead. He and pretty much he alone has been driving that, and frankly, regardless if he is on the red or blue team, I am glad he has
2) he isn't a fucking lawyer. He is one of the only guys on the hill who actually started, ran, and built up a successful business. Good
3) he is continuing to push for holder to be held accountable for gun runner. Again, yes he is a red team guy, but someone needs to try to hold this scumbag accountable.

The correct Issa response should have been:


“Listen asshole, you’re already in contempt of Congress, the very body you are sitting in front of.  If I had my fucking way, you’d be answering these questions in jail, cocksucker.  In fact, I think that’s where you belong. 


Sergeant at Arms, arrest this man immediately, and detain him until further notice. 


Mr. Attorney General, you are not above the law.  Go think about that for a while in jail, while we contact your incompetent boss.”

Obama did apologize to the Mexicans that majority of the guns used in the killings in Mexico are from the US. He also apologized for imposing sovereignty on the Mexicans. I infer he thinks we are illegally occupying New Mexico and California.

Try telling that to La Raza or MEChA, or the fact that the US paid the Mexican government for the Southwest territories after the Mexican-American war.

From Wikipedia:

"The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo specified the major consequence of the war: the forced Mexican Cession of the territories of Alta California and New Mexico to the U.S. in exchange for $15 million. In addition, the United States assumed $3.25 million of debt owed by the Mexican government to U.S. citizens. Mexico accepted the loss of Texas and thereafter cited the Rio Grande as its national border."

That's right, an agreement was reached after war. I hate coyotes and backstabber. We have rule of law, which is why this place is better than Mehico. You break the law you pay. Otherwise they'll be slaving for the nwo. I'm not going to slave for the nwo, or for any sorry clusterfuck of victims and theives like la Raza, the DNC and neoconazis.
Also the American indians have said those maps are bullshit.
