Virtually Entire US Media Boycotts "Off The Record" Meeting With Eric Holder

Tyler Durden's picture




 

The New York Times, The Associated Press, The Huffington Post, CNN and now, of course, Fox News: these are the media organizations, superficially from across the political spectrum, which have said they will boycott a meeting with the DOJ's embattled head, Eric Holder, on the topic of the DOJ's (not to mention the NSA's) Nixonian abuse of the first amendment and eavesdropping wherever and whenever it so chooses. The twist: the meeting is, paradoxically, supposed to be "off the record." One wonders: was this the DOJ's idea of being open and transparent - to hold a closed door meeting with the same media that it, allegedly, has been spying on, and thus put the media whose job is to report events - as in keeping the public informed - in a place where it can't do precisely that? It is as if the Marx Brothers are writing the tragicomic script for a sequence of events that inevitably ends with Holder's resignation and Obama's washing his hands of the whole affair.

From The Hill:

Fox is just the latest media organization to say it will boycott the meeting if it is off the record. Holder asked for the meetings in an attempt to ensure the press corps that its investigations of national security leaks are conducted in a way that respects the First Amendment.

 

The New York Times, The Associated Press, The Huffington Post and CNN have issued separate statements saying they will not attend because the DOJ is requiring the content of the meetings stay confidential.

 

Fox is at the center of the controversy surrounding the Justice Department’s investigation of national security leaks.

 

The DOJ seized the personal emails of Fox News chief Washington correspondent James Rosen and used other surveillance methods to investigate whether he was complicit in a leak of classified information.

 

It also examined his phone records and tracked his visits to the State Department using security-badge data during the 2009 probe; the DOJ also filed legal papers saying he may have acted as “an aider, abettor and/or co-conspirator” by getting materials from a government official also under investigation.

 

The House Judiciary Committee is now investigating whether Holder lied under oath during his May 15 testimony before the panel, in which he said he’s never been involved with or heard about a reporter being prosecuted for the disclosure of confidential material.

 

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren joked on her blog Thursday that if Fox was going to be the only media outlet attending the off-the-record meeting, they should send Rosen to meet with Holder.

It's good to know that as what little remaining constitional rights are stripped away by a government hell bent on converting the country to a "turnkey totalitarian state" (not our words, those of the NSA whistleblower who exposed that there is no privacy in the US anymore) and for whom the rule of law simply does not apply, is a laughing matter to someone.

Historians now believe that 10-30% of FDR's diplomatic staff, aides, and even cabinet may have been double agents during WWII.  Somehow, our president has managed not to have any subversives in his administration of how many thousand?  If a million people have security clearances and 0.1% are spies, that's still 1000 spies.

Just because someone is working for the Feds doesn't mean they have our best interests in mind.

A couple weeks ago Holder said he can't remember exactly how many times he's signed off on seizing reporters' records in leak investigations. 

http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/05/15/184138253/holder-isnt-sure-how-often-reporters-records-are-seized

'Never' isn't hard to remember. Once or twice are also not so tough. How many times do you have to do something before things start to fuzz on the details. I guess not many if you're part of the Obama regime.

Hi Rusty Silver - also check Prescott Bush and while you're at it check John Foster Dulles and his son Allen. Not just Nazi sympathizers - Nazi enablers. Of course a huge proportion of the American upper classes were also in that camp - these were just some of the more spectacular traitorous bastards.

Hi American Spirit,

According to Greg Hallet, Hitler trained at Tavistock, February-November 1912, and died in Spain, 1947, of a heart attack. Naturally, there is little documentation of this, but some circumstantial evidence. Of course, Abwehr Chief of Military Intelligence, Wilhelm Canaris' role as an MI6 agent has been revealed.

As for the documented, there's the Bush and Dulles connection at Harriman, and Jacob Schiff & the Warburg brothers backing the Bolsheviks. Funny, Schiff and Paul Warburg were also among the participants at Jekyll Island.

Fucking Illuminati. How much mass murder?

When will the true history of World Wars I and II be revealed?

Here is a quote from the article with the poll:

"But statistics from the United States show that guns are used by citizens to defend themselves around eighty times more often than they are used to take a life. A recent study published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy concluded that there is a negative correlation between gun ownership and violent crime in countries internationally, that is, “where firearms are most dense violent crime rates are lowest, and where guns are least dense violent crime rates are highest.""

YOU WILL NEVER GET A DO-OVER ON ISSUES LIKE THESE.  ONCE THEY'RE GONE, THEY'RE GONE AND THEY AIN'T COMIN' BACK.  So think long and hard before you give up stuff like this, even if it is "for the sake of the kids."

Actually, Himpton is a word.  It's when you have a "party for one" in the Hamptons.  It's called a Himpton... always has been... no invitation needed.  A Pimpton is when you pay people to come to the party... like "Lloyd's having a pimpton on Saturday with his $20 million salary... are you going?" 

And remember, there's no "I" in Justus, but there's an A in A-Team.  Actually there are two "A's" and a "T".  I pity the fool that has a counterparty when you can simply wear your wealth around your neck.

The report questioned whether it was proper for Gensler to recuse himself from handling MF Global (MFGLQ.PK), which collapsed in 2011, only after he played a prominent role in the events leading up to the firm's bankruptcy.

Gensler decided to distance himself from the brokerage only after it collapsed, and after Senator Charles Grassley, a Republican from Iowa, publicly raised concerns over his prior business relationship with MF Global Chief Executive Jon Corzine.

This is just politicians trying to give themselves an edge when TSHTF - the fewer guns there are out there, and the fewer rounds per gun, the better chance they have of escaping when the citizens finally come for them.

Please, as if we are being given an actual choice. We are given a carefully selected and approved red candidate and a carefully selected and approved blue candidate, both of whom are the same, only differing on minor and meaningless issues, such as abortion and gay marriage. Even the presidential offerings have to be interviewed and approved by Rothschild. What we've got is the illusion of choice rather than the substance of it. Our elections are about as meaningful as those farces they used to hold in the former Soviet Union or the ones Sadam Hussein used to hold or Juan Perron.

Could find no mention of mullatoes, only of african albinos:

To this catalogue of our indigenous animals, I will add a short account of an anomaly of nature, taking place sometimes in the race of negroes brought from Africa, who, though black themselves, have in rare instances, white children, called Albinos. I have known four of these myself, and have faithful accounts of three others. The circumstances in which all the individuals agree are these. They are of a pallid cadaverous white, untinged with red, without any coloured spots or seams; their hair of the same kind of white, short, coarse, and curled as is that of the negro; all of them well formed, strong, healthy, perfect in their senses, except that of sight, and born of parents who had no mixture of white blood.

Three of these Albinos were sisters, having two other full sisters, who were black. The youngest of the three was killed by lightning, at twelve years of age. The eldest died at about 27 years of age, in child-bed, with her second child. The middle one is now alive in health, and has issue, as the eldest had, by a black man, which issue was black. They are uncommonly shrewd, quick in their apprehensions and in reply. Their eyes are in a perpetual tremulous vibration, very weak, and much affected by the sun: but they see better in the night than we do.

http://intellihub.com/2013/05/30/did-senator-mccain-violate-ndaa-by-hang...

In case you missed it, Senator John McCain took the opportunity this Memorial Day to cross the Turkey-Syria border and hang out with Syrian rebels. These are the same rebels with ties to Al Qaeda. By Travis Thornton

United Liberty
May 30, 2013

These are the same rebels cutting out and eating the hearts of dead soldiers. According to reports, Senator McCain wanted to go further into combat but was not allowed.

And he calls us wacko-birds.

The consequences of Senator McCain’s calls to intervene in Syria and meddle further in a civil war could be quite grave, as Russia is sending anti-aircraft missiles to the Syrian regime. The use of chemical weapons has been reported – although it’s unsure which side is using them – with more attacks reported over the weekend.

There are further reports that most of our aid to the region is going to “hard-line Islamic jihadists.” In fact, the same day President Obama announced our recognition of the opposition, rebel groups across Syria signed a petition pledging allegiance to the Jihad and asking America by name not to intervene. It’s hard to imagine that twelve years after 9/11, Senator McCain would be calling for US foreign and military aid be given to “the Jihad.”

For more on the consequences of meddling in other countries’ civil wars in general, see my post here at United Liberty.

Violating NDAA

Interestingly enough, this is the same Senator McCain who championed NDAA 2012, which gives our government the right to indefinitely detain Americans for doing exactly what he did: supporting elements aligned with al-Qaeda. The provision from Section 1021 is as follows:

“Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40; 50 U.S.C. 1541 note) includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain a person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces.”

We should remember that Senator McCain fought Senator Rand Paul a year later (in December 2012) to keep that language in the law. What’s more, Senator McCain worked to throw out the Lee-Feinstein amendment that would have protected citizens from unlawful detention.  The amendment declared:

“An authorization to use military force, a declaration of war, or any similar authority shall not authorize the detention without charge or trial of a citizen or lawful permanent resident of the United States apprehended in the United States, unless an Act of Congress expressly authorizes such detention.”

In a December 2012 statement about this Amendment, Senator Paul blamed Senator McCain for killing the amendment:

“The decision by the NDAA conference committee, led by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to strip the National Defense Authorization Act of the amendment that protects American citizens against indefinite detention now renders the entire NDAA unconstitutional.”

Paul went on:

“When the government can arrest suspects without a warrant, hold them without trial, deny them access to counsel or admission of bail, we have shorn the Bill of Rights of its sanctity.”

For more on NDAA 2012, see this video from Reason TV.

So in an interesting twist, by meeting with and lending comfort to Syrian rebels aligned with al Qaeda, Senator McCain is validating their actions, and could be indefinitely detained by the very law he fought to uphold. He can’t have this both ways. Either the law should be altered – I recommend repealing AUMF in its entirety – or he should cease and desist with his activity with the Syrian rebels. Otherwise, we live in a country with one set of laws for the lawmakers, and another for the rest of us.

How to make Syria worse?

Reported sarin gas seizure follows arrest of 12 suspected al-Nusra Front fighters in s Turkey [Channel 4 News, UK, 1 hour ago, was broadcast live so they're at least willing to run the story on Prime TimeTM]

At an operation of Turkish police to al-Nusra Front conducted at Adana, Turkey; 4.4 pounds of Sarin gas has been found. At the operation related to Reyhanli explosions, and possible future explosions at Adana province by al-Nusra, 12 militants were taken into custody. 5 of them were released by now and interrogation of the remaining 7 is still ongoing. Militants stated that they would be smuggling the gas into Syria. The question how they acquired/ recieved the gas is still unknown.

I couldn't find ANY English translation of this news in whole of the Internet, but nearly all Turkish media is writing this right now. [LiveLeak - photos + Turkish links, 6 hrs ago]

Yep, whoever is running the show just dropped a doozy of a dinger. Whether or not it's spooky, Turkey has now allegedly caught al-Nusra Front intending to smuggle Chemical weapons INTO Syria. McCain is also now completely toxic, given he was posing with known kidnappers. [Telegraph 2 hrs ago]

 

And here we all thought the Chemical weapons were in Assad's hands, and he was using... Oh, fuck it, the narrative has gone to shit. Unbelievable.

 

Meta comment ~ while we all know European media is just as constructed as America's, at least the construction is a Gothic Church instead of a strip mall.

In the landmark Supreme Court case of Williams v. United States (504 U.S. 36 (1992)), Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, held that the American grand jury, under the Fifth Amendment to the Constitution, belongs to the people -- not the three branches of government. Indeed, the Citizens Grand Jury was widely used by the people before the nation had a Justice Department. There has never been an amendment to the Constitution that would preclude its use today.

"Given the compromised and corrupt state of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government, the people have now been forced to use the Citizens Grand Jury as our Founding Fathers envisioned when the sovereign fails to take into account the grievances of the people.  The Founding Fathers 'created' the Citizens Grand Jury as a safety value to allow the people to enforce the law when the POLITICIANS and JUDGES subvert it.

 

Only issue how do they plan to enforce it....... That is why the 2nd Amendment is so fucking important. Everyone stockpiling ammo, guns, ropes, guillotines, handcuffs etc time to put them to good use....

However, if the courts refuse and the executive branch does not carry out its duties by, for instance, arresting the criminally accused, Americans do have a right to make "citizens arrests," hold trials and legally mete out punishment in their own right. Indeed, this is what occurred in the western part of the United States, in particular, during our early years as a nation — before there was a developed federal court system and executive branch.

 

Dewey, how wonderful would it be to cuff Holder yourself and drag his ass to jail?  That'd be a helluva stroy to tell to the guys at happy hour.

It's hard to feel sympathy for a bunch of hypocrites. I'd feel a lot more sympathy for the media if they gave a damn whenever the rest of us had our privacy and rights violated. I mean look at the hypocrisy.

-Aaron Swartz gets prosecuted on bogus CFAA claims? Who cares, until he committed suicide, then briefly mention it, but then who cares after a few days?

-Over a third of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay being held have been cleared of ALL charges for YEARS, and were determined to NEVER have been a threat to the US in the first place, or a terrorist. Yet they're still being held there 3+ years later because their home country doesn't want them/wont' guarantee their security, and US politicians don't want to release a bunch of innocent people accused of terrorism in the US. The mainstream media says "who cares", until several months into a massive hunger strike, then they care briefly for a few days, then they don't care again.

-Government does lots of warrant-less wiretapping on millions of Americans. Mainstream media thinks it's largely not worth reporting, even when lots of stories about innocent people being watched by the government for simply being or looking like Muslims come out. Mainstream media gets wire tapped and their emails read, and suddenly Mainstream media thinks this is a HUGE problem, just not when it happens to regular Americans, ONLY when it happens to them.

The Justice Department and prosecutors and law enforcement doing all this stuff aren't great people either. But the Media hardly has a leg to stand on here at claiming to be completely innocent when they let the government get away with violating everyone else's rights.

Holder and Obama are the most corrupt lying officals ever to be in the White House, from Fast & Furious cover-up, Benghazi-top military Generals have said that the only one that can give a "Stand down" order is the President and that order goes through the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of State. No one can top it, therefore off to bed Obama goes because he "done" with it and off to Vegas the next day. Former IRS official Shulman visited the White House 159 times!! Amounts to every 9 days! No IRS official EVER visited that many times before, but no other admistration was plotting to shut the Tea Party, Religous groups, Jewish groups up!

Now NO ONE wants to talk to them except the perps who are under the gun, and only then, under tightly controlled circumstances.

Worthless scum.

Thanks for lowering the bar.

While we are on Ball Holder the Associated Press thing gets better.

The Associated Press scandal just keeps getting worse, and we haven't even started yet. AP CEO Gary Pruitt informed staffers Wednesday that the Department of Justice monitored, not one, not twenty, but "thousands and thousands" of phone calls made by reporters and editors.

Associated Press president and chief executive Gary Pruitt told staff at a Wednesday town hall meeting that the phone records obtained by the government included "thousands and thousands" of calls in and out of the news organization, according to a staffer who attended.

Pruitt said Wednesday that the Obama administration acted as "judge, jury and executioner" in secretly obtaining the news organization's records, a criticism he also leveled in a recent appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation."

During the town hall, Pruitt reiterated that the AP did not report on a CIA-thwarted terrorist plot in May 2012 out of national security concerns until sources indicated the Obama administration was going to announce it publicly.

Piers Morgan appearing on TV to take away our guns tells me immediately there is something very wrong with our immigration system....if Piers doesn't like guns, he should go home.

 

Allowing him on TV to preach at us is an insult....it is unpatriotic...if our colonials had not had fire arms, we would still be ruled by the Brits such as Piers....

 

I think the NRA should investigate just how Piers is allowed to be working over here.

Yo, press corps!  We are going to have a meeting and explain to you how we are addressing the constitutional issues of free speech and press muzzling, but you can't tell anyone what we say.

Who writes this stuff?

Holder was just testing the tard waters. I am sure mother earth and rolling stones will fill the tard vacuum for Holder.Keep in mind besides being a serial liar, Holder has no problem with murdering civillians[fast and furious] be they foreign or domestic. I continue to call my reps so I wont feel bad when govt people have to pay that rascally price of perforation.

 

Honey !! GD!! Bring me another mofo beer !!!
