Eric Holder aka the worst Attorney General EVER says he isn’t going anywhere.
From Fast and Furious to the countless lawsuits that seek to strip citizens of their constitutional rights, Eric Holder is making a mockery of the office.
Defiant, Holder refuses to step down. Despicable!
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder plans to stay on through November’s mid-term elections and has no timeline for an exit after that, a Justice Department official told Reuters on Friday.
“The Attorney General does not plan to leave before the mid-terms. That does not mean that he is definitely leaving after the mid-terms, just that he is at least staying through that time,” the official said.
There has been speculation over when Holder, 63, might step down from the post he has held since shortly after President Barack Obama took office in 2009. Should Republicans win control of both chambers of Congress in the November elections, it may be difficult for a potential replacement for Holder to be confirmed.
Things are getting hotter by the day in the Ukraine.
Now the PM is saying Russia wants WWII!
Where this is headed I’m not sure but I wish we had a real leader in the White House!
Tim Allen took to Jimmy Kimmel for a bit on how pitiful California’s economy is.
But naturally you can’t talk California’s economy without acknowledging the major role the government played.
Tim Allen did just that….and it was hilarious!
Eventually the truth becomes so apparent that even some of your biggest allies can no longer keep quiet.
That is what we have here as Chuck Todd took to MSNBC to confirm what the whole world already knows.
Obama won’t approve Keystone XL out of PURE POLITICS….jobs be damned!
We missed our shot in 2010 but it looks like “Fire Harry Reid” is now becoming a rallying cry for 2014.
Taking him out of the position leader will be vital for the future of this country.
Now the American people are finally rising up!
Hoping to galvanize their base further, Republicans are casting the midterm elections as a golden opportunity to fire Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, the Nevada Democrat who has served as lead blocker for President Obama’s liberal agenda on Capitol Hill and chief opponent of GOP legislation.
The attacks are being espoused inside and outside the Capital Beltway and could become staples of the Republican message as the party looks to pick up the six seats needed to take the Senate gavel out of Mr. Reid’s hands.
Bombshell. The U.S. government sent $500M worth of weaponry to arm the opposition in Libya back in 2011.
The problem? They were members of Al-Qaeda!!
We MUST stop with arming our sworn enemies. When will we learn?! We can’t afford this woman as President.
The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn’t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.
‘The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,’ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.
She blamed the Obama administration for failing to stop half of a $1 billion United Arab Emirates arms shipment from reaching al-Qaeda-linked militants.
‘Remember, these weapons that came into Benghazi were permitted to enter by our armed forces who were blockading the approaches from air and sea,’ Lopez claimed. ‘They were permitted to come in. … [They] knew these weapons were coming in, and that was allowed..
‘The intelligence community was part of that, the Department of State was part of that, and certainly that means that the top leadership of the United States, our national security leadership, and potentially Congress – if they were briefed on this – also knew about this.’
The weapons were intended for Gaddafi but allowed by the U.S. to flow to his Islamist opposition.
What an embarrassment! Remember President Obama running on an agenda to build the American middle class?….Oops!
When will people wake up to the fact that liberal policies help NO ONE!
2016 can’t here fast enough!
The American middle class, long the most affluent in the world, has lost that distinction.
While the wealthiest Americans are outpacing many of their global peers, a New York Times analysis shows that across the lower- and middle-income tiers, citizens of other advanced countries have received considerably larger raises over the last three decades.
After-tax middle-class incomes in Canada — substantially behind in 2000 — now appear to be higher than in the United States. The poor in much of Europe earn more than poor Americans.
The numbers, based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, offer some of the most detailed publicly available comparisons for different income groups in different countries over time. They suggest that most American families are paying a steep price for high and rising income inequality.Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries, or stronger, a small percentage of American households is fully benefiting from it. Median income in Canada pulled into a tie with median United States income in 2010 and has most likely surpassed it since then. Median incomes in Western European countries still trail those in the United States, but the gap in several — including Britain, the Netherlands and Sweden — is much smaller than it was a decade ago.
Powerful stuff coming out of Boston today with an American winning the Boston Marathon for the first time since 1983.
In the first race since the terrorist attacks at the finish line last year, emotions were running high and so was security.
But Meb Keflezighi, an American who wore the names of all 4 victims on each corner of his bib took the race personally and in the process made history!
American Meb Keflezighi looked over his shoulder, flipped up his sunglasses and threw his arms towards the sky as he became the first American male to win the Boston Marathon in over 30 years – while wearing the names of the bombing victims on his race bib.
Keflezighi’s time of 2:08:37 made him the first U.S. male to win the storied foot race since 1983. The 38-year-old crossed the finish line to a roaring crowd and was overcome with emotion as tears streamed down his exhausted face.
‘It was my dream to win Boston and to make it just like the Red Sox did and do the same thing for the people,’ Keflezighi said after the race.
The names of Martin Richard, 8, Krystle Campbell, 29, and Lu Lingzi, 23, were each written in a corner of the bib he wore for the race. MIT Officer Sean Collier, shot dead three days after the marathon, was also included.
