Hold Holder Responsible
Harlotte's at the Breakfast Table
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, September 29, 2014. Our dear friend, Spider Harlotte, is joining us for breakfast this morning. She wishes to discuss the welcome news that Attorney General Holder is resigning from the Justice Department. This decision is the only positive action he has made since he assumed the position. Please join us for breakfast. Harlotte has prepared a vat of homemade granola for our enjoyment. I will have an even bigger supply of Irish coffees on hand for those who hate granola!
Good News, Bad News
Hello, my dear and cherished human family. I appreciate your presence at the breakfast table. When Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation, I swear I heard the nation give a gigantic sigh of relief. During his tenure, the nation has suffered terribly. America has a lawless president being advised by a lawless Attorney General. The combo has divided our nation, lit the fires of racism and destroyed the meaning and intent of the Constitution. Eric Holder meted out something, but it certainly wasn't justice. Under Holder's leadership the Justice Department became a political extension of the White House. He pursued supposed violators of the law in a political and personal way. He ignored others in the same way. When the New Black Panthers stood outside a polling place with baseball bats to intimidate voters, Holder gave them a pass. He ran the department like it was his personal empire only protecting some of the people some of the time. He holds the dubious distinction of being the first attorney general to be held in contempt by the House. His departure is a blessing, but who replaces him may not be at all.
Oh No, Not Al!
The bad news comes in the form of the Rev. Al Sharpton, who released a statement saying that he and his his organization, the National Action Network, were talking to the White House about who Holder's successor should be. Not surprisingly, Sharpton would like Holder replaced with a Holder act alike. Sharpton, President Obama and some other misguided individuals are very busy praising the tenure of the worst attorney general in history. I don't know what they are smoking, but it should be illegal. Since it is the president who decides what type of person takes over the DOJ, the nation should be very worried. Holder was his man.
Timing is Everything
It has been suggested that Eric Holder is leaving in advance of Judge Bate's denial of a request by the DOJ to delay the release of Fast and Furious documents. In all probability, Holder was hoping that these documents would never see the light of day. At long last, justice will be served and it is a widely held belief that Eric Holder will not emerge from this scandal unscathed. The family of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was killed on December 14, 2010 may finally learn the truth along with the American people. It will, no doubt, be a bad day for Eric Holder, but it will be much worse if he still leads the Department of Justice.
Playing the Race Card
Attorney General Eric Holder came into office believing that America is as racist as it ever was. Despite the election of a black candidate to the presidency and his own ascension to head the Department of Justice, he pushed the inequality of blacks in this nation to the max. He came in angry and he is leaving angry. He had the chance to faithfully execute the laws of this country fairly and he blew it. Instead he used his position to further an agenda that divided this nation and pit blacks against whites and the rich against the poor. He could have been a shining example of what a person can achieve in America, but instead he chose to use his position to widen the gap between the haves and have-nots and everyone in between. His departure is good for the nation. Let's hope his successor is cut from a different cloth.
Oh, what a tangled web he weaves
When first he practices to deceive...
