On day of contempt vote Eric Holder skips town, heads to Disney World
On day of contempt vote Eric Holder skips town, heads to Disney World
On the day in which the U.S. House of Representatives has determined that Attorney General Eric Holder’s actions are egregious enough to warrant a criminal contempt vote, the AG has skipped town and headed to … Disneyworld.
According to the National Journal’s Daybook, Holder will be addressing the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) during a convention at a Disneyworld Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Members of Congress will decide in a series of contempt votes whether Attorney General Holder will be held in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over a substantial number of the documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal that caused the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Last week, Obama claimed executive privilege on the documents related to the Fast and Furious Investigation, a move that has angered many Americans and indicated the possibility of a cover-up.
Many Democrats have attempted to politicize the issue, falsely claiming that House Republican’s contempt vote is an act of racism that has more to do with their efforts to surpress votes than finding out the truth about the operation and Terry’s death. The Congressional Black Caucus has scheduled a public walk-out during Holder’s contempt vote, to protest the sanctions against the Attorney General.
Though he will likely be held in contempt by Congress on all counts, for now Holder should just try and enjoy his time at “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” The Attorney General can rest easy knowing that the President and his Democratic friends in Congress will have his back while he is kickin’ it with Mickey Mouse.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder at LULAC: glad to not be in Washington, “Oh, yeah, yeah!”
June, 28 2012
BAY LAKE — Speaking before the national convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder preached civil rights, voting rights and justice but said nothing about today’s big events: the U.S. Supreme Court decision on health care or Congress’s prospects of holding him in contempt.
The embattled attorney general’s Department of Justice supported the Affordable Care Act’s big Supreme Court win today. And he personally is a target of Congressional Republicans investigating the Justice Department’s botched gun-running investigation known as Fast and Furious. Yet in his 20-minute speech today Holder stuck to easier topics with LULAC, the nation’s largest and oldest civil rights organization for Hispanics.
However, in his opening remarks, Holder did concede, “It’s good to be here and not in Washington D.C. right now.
“Oooh, yeah. Yeah!” he added, drawing laughter from about 1,000 LULAC delegates and others gathered at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
Holder said that in the past three years the Justice Department has filed more civil rights cases than in any previous period in the nation’s history, including one against Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
He said the department is pursuing “careful, thorough and independent” assessments of voter law changes, including those in Florida. His department lost a challenge Thursday in U.S. District Court attempting to stop a purge of voters whom the state suspected were not U.S. citizens. While he mentioned the Florida effort he did not acknowlege that setback by his department.
He highlighted his department’s suit against Arizona that led the Supreme Court to strike down parts of that state’s immigration enforcement laws. And he said that while the court left standing the controversial “show me your papers” provision,” he pledged that his department would make sure Arizona law enforcement did not use that provision to racially profile Hispanic residents.
“I want to assure communities in Arizona and around the country, and you, that the Department of Justice will continue to vigorously enforce federal prohibitions against racial profiling and ethnic discrimination,” he said.
That promise drew loud applause.
He also drew loud applause for mentioning President Barack Obama’s order, two weeks ago, shielding some young immigrants from deportation if they came to the United States illegally as very young children and strove to become law-abiding Americans. The loud applause was repeated when he echoed Obama’s vow, made last week in Orlando at another Hispanic convention, to pass the long-stalled DREAM Act immigration reform plan.
Holder made one more veiled reference to the potential he faces of being held in contempt over the administration’s refusal to turn over documents in the Fast and Furious investigation.
He urged LULAC members to “call on policy makers to go beyond partisan gridlock and political “gotcha games.”
U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams, R-Oviedo, responded on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives to charges that the Fast & Furious inquiry is political.
“Let me just say this: I have heard from the other side of the aisle and from my colleagues here today that this is political. This isn’t political – to me, it’s personal,” Adams said, according to a transcript released by her office. “We have a law enforcement officer doing his job who was killed by a flawed operation that no one will take ownership of in the Attorney General’s office. And the Attorney General himself won’t tell us what rises to the level of his knowing what is going on at his agency if an international operation does not. Adams is seeking re-election by running in a newly-drawn district that pits her against another Republican incumbent, U.S. Rep. John Mica, R-Winter Park.
“So I will tell you this, it was not political when I started looking into this, and when we started looking into it. It is not political today,” she said on the floor. “And the way that it became political was when it was asserted right before the gavel dropped in the committee, an executive privilege.”

Holder Vows Solidarity With Latino Leftists: “Uno Para Todos, Todos Para Uno.”
June 29, 2012
On the same week that the U.S. House of Representatives found him in criminal contempt, the nation’s embattled Attorney General professed solidarity with a radical leftist Latino group, proudly celebrating its socialist mission of “uno para todos, todos para uno” (all for one and one for all).
It wasn’t enough for Eric Holder to earn the accolade of being the nation’s first sitting Attorney General to be found in criminal contempt by Congress for stonewalling the investigation of a disastrous experiment conducted by his office. Known as Operation Fast and Furious, the project allowed Mexican drug traffickers to obtain U.S.-sold weapons. Many of the guns have been linked to serious crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.
Judicial Watch has sued the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the various agencies that operate under it for records related to the Fast and Furious. As part of that ongoing investigation, last fall JW obtained internal government records that show the number of crimes connected to the failed gun-running venture is significantly higher than previously disclosed. This led to the broader congressional probe that Holder has impeded.
As the House publicly admonished him, Holder was at a fancy Disney resort in Florida praising a Latino civil rights group—League of United Latin American Citizens LULAC— best known for accusing a Mexican fast-food eatery of a “hate crime” for using a Chihuahua in a commercial. In the 1990s a top LULAC official accused the food chain of the hate crime by saying that “Mexican Americans are treated like dogs, they have to work like dogs, and now they’re being portrayed as dogs.”
Yet there was the country’s top law enforcement officer praising about 1,000 LULAC delegates at an upscale Disney resort, repeatedly chanting “all for one and one for all” in both English and Spanish. Holder bragged that his DOJ has filed more civil rights cases than in any previous period in the nation’s history and he highlighted an ongoing witch hunt against an Arizona sheriff known for cracking down on illegal immigration.
“I want to assure communities in Arizona and around the country, and you, that the Department of Justice will continue to vigorously enforce federal prohibitions against racial profiling and ethnic discrimination,” Holder told the crowd. He also assured that his department is pursuing “careful, thorough and independent” assessments of voter identification laws that Democrats assert discriminate against minorities.
He continued: “On these and other critical issues, you’ve succeeded in bringing a diverse range of partners together. You’ve proven the power of unity – and the virtues of diversity. And you’ve breathed new life into the old adage that – more than 80 years ago – gave voice to LULAC’s mission and vision: Uno para todos, todos para uno.
This enduring ideal – of all for one, and one for all; and the common understanding – that, here in the United States, we rise and fall as one people, and that we will only succeed if we work together as one nation – has been at the heart of the success we’re gathered to celebrate today – and to advance. ”
