When is enough, enough? We say the time is now! The Obama Administration has shown itself to have blatant disregard and disrespect for our system of government as well as for the law of the land, the Constitution. Obama and his cronies operate as if the United States is a dictatorship and operate like a Chicago crime syndicate. They do what they want, when they want, with absolutely no regard to the law.
Do you stand with us?
Attorney General Eric Holder makes a mockery of this mission statement every day. Rather than running his office as a servant to the American people with deep respect for the laws that he is supposed to enforce, he runs the Department of Justice like the enforcement wing of a mafia organization with President Obama at the helm. Holder acts as Obama’s personal attorney and hit man, doing whatever is necessary to protect him and ‘the family’, even if it means unlawful acts.
America has seen a number of egregious and unlawful acts by the man who is supposed to serve as the main legal advisor to the United States government. Instead, he uses his office as a weapon to push Obama’s radical, unconstitutional agenda and to punish those who disagree with the president We have witnessed a refusal to prosecute Black Panthers for voter intimidation. We have seen the loss of life, including Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, with the gun running operation Fast and Furious. We have heard Holder state that citizenship to illegals is a ‘civil right’. Those are just to name a few.
Congressman Blake Farenthold, who represents the 27th district in Texas, delivered a blistering message to Eric Holder at yesterday’s House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing in which he had the opportunity to question Obama Attorney General Eric Holder.
Congressman Farenthold declined questioning Holder, the first Cabinet member in history to be held in contempt of Congress. The reason? Because Eric Holder should be in jail!
Congressman Farenthold stated:
“You know, I understand that this Committee has the constitutional duty of oversight over the Department of Justice and that’s why we have Mr. Holder here today — but I don’t think I can be a part of eroding the constitutional balance of power, favoring the executive over the legislative.”
“I don’t think Mr. Holder should be here. He’s in contempt of this body. I’ve called for his resignation, I’ve sponsored articles of impeachment and, this week, I’m going to be introducing legislation that would prevent federal employees who are held in contempt of Congress or who fail to fully comply with a Congressional subpoena from being paid their taxpayer-funded salary. I’m going to try and get that [the legislation] included with the appropriations bills that’ll be going through.”
“I’m committed to maintaining the Constitutional balance of power and the authority that this legislative branch has, and I just don’t think it’s appropriate that Mr. Holder be here. If an American citizen had not complied with one of the Justice Department’s subpoenas, they would be in jail and not sitting here in front of me, testifying.”
We agree with the congressman. We believe that Holder should tender his resignation effective immediately! But, that is not enough. We continue to call for the prosecution of Eric Holder. The very rule of law is at stake and the credibility of every law enforcement officer in the country. If our top law enforcement agency refuses to follow the law, there is no rule of law, and this is no longer America.
This Tea Party petition system is free for you to use anytime, but those that can afford to donate to the tea party movement to help cover its large costs, it is greatly appreciated. The new petition system costs a great deal to operate because it assures your email gets through SPAM and directly to your Congressmen for them to read. We are now going to have constant petitions for you week after week for you to have your voice heard by your representatives. You all have sent them over 8 million individual petitions already and they are hearing you loud and clear. Help us make this new great system succeed. Thank you.
