Holder Foretells The Return Of Obama: "He's Coming, And He's Ready To Roll"

Tyler Durden's picture

Barack Obama, after making the very difficult decision to proceed with Penguin Random House to publish his and Michelle's White House memoirs in a deal rumored to net him about $60 million, is, at least according to old pal Eric Holder, ready to take his place at the helm of the democrats' Trump opposition efforts.  Of course, this breaks with the tradition upheld by most former Presidents who have chosen to not publicly criticize their successors...but the rules don't really apply to Obama now do they?

According to Holder, Obama's triumphant return to politics will be focused on, among other things, fundraising (his specialty) and assisting the National Democratic Redistricting Committee (NDRC) in its efforts to redraw congressional districts to give Democrats a leg up in the House of Representatives.  Per Politico:

Barack Obama is getting closer to making his public reappearance in politics, his friend and former Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday.


Holder said he’s been talking to the former president about ways — including fundraising and interacting with state legislators — that could help the new National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which Obama asked Holder to chair last year.


“It’s coming. He’s coming,” Holder said, speaking to reporters at a briefing for the new group. “And he’s ready to roll.”


Throughout, Holder said, Obama “will be a more visible part of the effort.”

Obama Holders


As Holder notes, he and the former President will join forces in an epic "battle for our democracy" that will revolve around redrawing maps to benefit his chosen party.

The NDRC is looking to be an intensified central force for Democrats to tackle their disadvantage in gerrymandering. The mission is to direct resources into winning targeted state elections, push ballot initiatives for nonpartisan district-drawing commissions and wage legal challenges to existing maps. The hope is that this would put Democrats in a stronger position in state houses, but also in the U.S. House of Representatives, if districts are drawn that more accurately represent the distribution of the popular vote, citing statistics that showed Republicans winning 49 percent of the vote in those elections but getting 55 percent of the seats in the 2016 elections.


“This is really a battle for our democracy,” Holder said. “The notion that people are denied their ability to cast a meaningful vote … is inconsistent with who we say we are, inconsistent with what we say our democracy is about.”

Of course, we're sure that Holder's intentions are every bit as pure as he says they are and he is in no way motivated to go out and file a bunch of gerrymandering lawsuits just because it will net his law firm, Covington & Burlin, as well as himself, million of dollars in fees.

As we noted before, Holder was also "honored" recently to win a mandate from California, even though no one has any idea what he's been retained to do, which will also undoubtedly result in $10s of million of dollars in bribes fees for his new law firm.

“I am honored that the Legislature chose Covington to serve as its legal adviser as it considers how to respond to potential changes in federal law that could impact California’s residents and policy priorities,” Mr. Holder said in a statement. “I am confident that our expertise across a wide array of federal legal and regulatory issues will be a great resource to the Legislature.”


The Legislature has an ample stable of lawyers on staff, but officials said Mr. Holder and his firm brought specific litigation and political skills that could be needed in the coming years. Mr. de León said the final compensation for the firm had not been set, but would be publicly disclosed once it was.

As a reminder, Holder made history back in 2012 when he became the first Attorney General ever to be held in contempt of Congress over his failure to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal which involved selling guns to Mexican drug cartels.  The scandal erupted on the national stage when one of those guns was confirmed to have been used to kill a U.S. border control agent, Brian Terry.

Good to see Obama's former staff embracing "The Swamp" that Trump has vowed to drain.

How can they be so befuddled by the results of an election and then hold themselves out as saviors of democracy? And since the new rule is that electoral outcomes no longer need to be respected then what's the point of gerrymandering?

We are going to see all kinds of desperate efforts to keep our eyes off the prize, PIZZAGATE. With how high and how deep this goes, it is nothing less than an existential crisis for these creeps.

Arrest W first. He killed 1 million Iraqis for no reason.

They're all the same dude. Next war criminal: Trump.


jeff montanye's picture

not so fast dude, arrest w, fair enough, but obama and clinton right afterward; they too have a million corpses on their record.  so far trump is a war criminal; killed a little girl u.s. citizen in yemen.  her name was nawar and she was really cute, now very dead.  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/feb/01/yemen-strike-eight-year-ol...

however his sins, so far, are less than the two priors, though these are early days.

these decisions aren't firing people on tv anymore; executive executions of u.s. citizens without trial are unconstitutional and also a bad idea politically.  please mr. president, stop being a stooge for the zionists who run the show.  obama figured it out after seven years or so.  try to be a quicker study mr. president.

Y’know, one of the things I was curious about was why Chewie lost the long smooth straight hair wig and reverted to the natural nappy look for the swearing in of their worst nightmare.

I guess she and choomie must feel the need to go back to aboriginal to deflect all the mud they are going to be wearing soon.

I suspect that the  prez and his AG will not be showing them any undeserved kindnesses.

I would admit to being racist with this comment if it wasn’t for the truthiness of it.

it would certainly be entertaining to watch someone give it a whirl.  at least obama got elected and had the usefulness to make the g.w. bush policies he continued now able to be rejected by at least a faction of the republican party and, we will see, possibly the trump administration as well.

further, as a telling indicator that the likud/mossad zionists who actually rule the nation are now officially over the clintons (and hence they may be more vulnerable than many think), see this hatchet job on chelsea from their house organ commentary:  https://www.commentarymagazine.com/politics-ideas/fabricating-chelsea-cl...

Ya knooowah (lol) I'm really getting pissed now.

I specifically ordered my Trump-Hitler with a side of Robert Reich drowned in snowflakes and these cold tranny bread sticks don't have their peckers sewn back on either. Trump-Hitler was supposed to physically hold them down and reattach their weenies inside one of those nasty Port-a-Potties used for one of Chairman ObaMao's rock concert/campaign rallies in Berlin...Germany.

This is what I understood CNN to say when they started calling him Trump-Hitler, I'm thinking they've been lying to me ;-)

The prize is actually the Federal Reserve and taking money creation away from a tiny elite who strip money from the entire economy.

Pizzagate is an unfortunate fact that has to be directly addressed to take power away from these elites who use extortion to control Congress.

The lone gun patsy, Jared Lougher, killed the Federal judge who was investigating F&F.

Gabby Giffords was just collateral damage and ended used to keep attention away from the judge and for the anti-firearm movement.

Other Federal judges got the message.

Gabby Gifford is living proof that you can shoot a Democrat in the head and not hit anything important or necessary for life.

The Trump Presidency is over, it ended when he let Flynn go.

24 days.

Yeah he looked Presidential because he looked like every other traitor we have had.

He is going to increase military spending by $54 billion dollars when it is known that 50% of the military budget is waste, fraud and abuse already.

It's over.

the big wash out.

When I talked to this democrat about obama in 2008 saying Goldman's loaded him up she said

"I need my hope"

You down voters are the same as her.

You can't vote your way outta this shit, GET IT?

jeff montanye's picture

imo this is too soon to quit.  if trump supporters keep up a sustained critique of his actions (words are cheap, obama, if no one else, taught us that) based on his campaign rhetoric and what is common sense and good for the country, we may yet see improvement.  and i also hold out hope for the results of the first face to face with v. putin.

president trump doesn't need one line of legislation to make this country much better: enforce the laws equally, end too big to jail; take the sanctions off russia; push for giving everyone ruled by israel full citizenship rights, certainly voting rights, like the israeli president believes;

Exactly! The democratic party has no relational fix on the reality of why Trump won the general election.  They think that trotting out a do-nothing/knee-bending to foreign soverign potentates ex-president and his constitutionally-obstructive DOJ head - both part and party to the democratic electoral loss - will reverse their party's loss. 

Face it, Democrats:  you are anti-intellectuals whose views are so divorced from reality as to be diagnosed as psychotic.  The world has moved on and has left your ideology in tatters.

"Face it, Democrats:  you are anti-intellectuals whose views are so divorced from reality as to be diagnosed as psychotic.  The world has moved on and has left your ideology in tatters."

This is correct. I just got my Democrat feedback envelope and they care not what the did was wrong and are only looking for what they dont like in Trump. Nothing positive, nothing about Dem corruption.

However, all the people on the left that I know agree and are disgusted with the Dems.
