Will Holder Turn State’s Evidence And Finger Obama Or Be Fitted With A Snazzy Orange Jumpsuit

                                       

These Days Are Over

“What we’ve got here is… failure to communicate.”

A quote from the movie Cool Hand Luke: spoken by The Captain, the imperious warden and by Cool Hand Luke at the conclusion of the film.

Anagnorisis is the moment or instant when ignorance gives way to truth; assumed to be first described by Aristotle in his “Poetics,” it along with peripeteia (reversal of fortune) describe Eric Holder’s recent encounter with facts and soon justice and perhaps federal prison in Leavenworth.

How poetic, the ancient Greeks so aptly described the present situation Holder created for himself by committing perjury, a crime he would no doubt prosecute against another felon with fast and furious efficiency, but now he is the one who faces prosecution and imprisonment for committing perjury during a congressional hearing.

The race card will be difficult to play effectively and Affirmative Action has run out for Eric Holder. Actually, the race card has been so overplayed by Obama, Holder, and the Congressional Black Caucus, it may have lost all relevance.

New emails indicate that Holder lied during congressional hearings on May 3, in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. During sworn testimony, he stated that he first heard of Operation Fast and Furious “over the last few weeks;” however, he had been briefed in a memo almost a year earlier on July 5, 2010. Actually, he was briefed on the operation in a continuous stream of emails that updated him and other key members of the administration on the progress and relative success of the operation. He was well aware of the fact that thousands of weapons were being bought by the Sinaloa cartel and being carried across the border.

Here is a sample excerpt:

From July 12 through July 16, the National Drug Intelligence Center Document and Media Exploitation Team at the Phoenix Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCTDETF) Strike Force will support the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ Phoenix Field Division with its investigation of Manuel Celis-Acosta as part of OCDETF Operation Fast and Furious. This investigation, initiated in September 2009 in conjunction with the Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Phoenix Police Department, involves a Phoenix-based firearms trafficking ring headed by Manual Celis-Acosta. Celis-Acosta and [redacted] straw purchasers are responsible for the purchase of 1,500 firearms that were then supplied to Mexican drug trafficking cartels. They also have direct ties to the Sinaloa Cartel which is suspected of providing $1 million for the purchase of firearms in the greater Phoenix area.

Besides the race card, Holder’s defense attorney will surely claim that an AG is overwhelmed with dozens of reports each week and these particular reports escaped his attention because of overwork and incompetence. Ordinarily, in the case of parking tickets and run of the mill political corruption, these three defenses warrant acquittal, but this case is a little different. Two federal agents have been murdered with these weapons that the Obama Administration tried beyond measure and common sense to place in the hands of Narcotics traffickers and killers; their sense of accommodation is to be commended, if only they could have placed such efforts on the economy. There have also been hundreds if not thousands of Mexican nationals killed with these same weapons; yet by a simple plea of incompetence and of overwork, Holder will surely try to distance himself from the mayhem and murder brought about by the Obama plan to arm Mexican Drug gangs.

It will be hard to convince a jury that he missed similar reports every week for a number of months, but he may putting too much faith in the color of his hide if he relies on that defense. It is far more likely that he will turn State’s Evidence and give up Napolitano and Obama to avoid a lengthy prison term, but he better move quick, the memos and reports are coming to the surface daily.

They Don't Use Stripes Anymore, It's Stylish Orange Jumpsuits for The Obama Administration

At this point it is conjecture as to whether the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has the power or the cojones to imprison a sitting AG for contempt of congress, surely they will appoint a special prosecutor to prosecute for a much longer prison sentence than the one year sentence they can impose for contempt of congress and thus increase the scope of the investigation. Constitutional issues will surely arise on whether a congressional committee has the power to prosecute a member of the Executive, but it seems to be a more difficult and dubious path than selecting a special prosecutor and bringing down the entire Obama Administration.

A number of the emails that have surfaced involve two Department of Justice officials, Deputy Chief of the National Gand Unit James Trusty and Jason Weinstein, Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Criminal Division. These two men discuss in detail the details of another gun-walking operation in Tucson (Fast and Furious was based in Phoenix) and a third unnamed gun-walking operation.

Trusty to Weinstein:

Looks like we’ll be able to unseal the tucson case sooner than Fast and Furious (although this may be the difference between Nov and Dec). It’s not clear how much we’re invlvoed in the main F and F case, but we have Tucson and now a new, related case with [redacted] targets. It’s not going to be any big surprise that a bunch of US guns are being used in MX, so I’m not sure how much grief we get for “gun walking.” It may be more like, “Finally, they’re going after people who sent guns down there.”

Recent documents confirm at lest three and possibly four gun walking operations, thus probably implicating Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, the State Department, and the White House.

It is time for Holder to sing like a bird or ask for a tailored orange jump suit with matching wingtips.

This is only starting to become interesting, but remember, timing is critical. If Holder takes the fall, Obama can pardon him before leaving office; however, there are too many that are facing possible charges on this one, including the skinny guy in the White House.

Epilogue: Don’t hesitate to email this and other reports around the country; it’s a dead cinch the MSM won’t cover it until Holder and Napolitano are read their Miranda Rights. Put some popcorn on the stove, this will be better than color TV.

Addition: Holder now says he saw the memos, but didn’t read the details. Bill Clinton must have given him that one, since the definition of “Is” has been played out.

    Operation Fast and Furious: The Scandal that Can No Longer be Denied

    CBS reporter: White House, DOJ reps ‘yelled’ and ‘screamed’ at her over ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal

    On Tuesday’s Laura Ingraham Show, Sharyl Attkisson said DOJ spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler and White House associate communications director Eric Schultz yelled and screamed at her over the story.

    “The DOJ woman was just yelling at me,” Sharyl Attkisson said. “The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me. Eric Schultz — oh, the person screaming was Tracy Schmaler. She was yelling, not screaming. And the person who screamed at me was Eric Schultz at the White House.”

    Sharyl Attkisson explained the vicious tongue-lashing:

    “In between the yelling that I received from the Justice Department yesterday, the spokeswoman — who would not put anything in writing — I was asking for her explanation so there would be clarity and no confusion later over what had been said. She wouldn’t put anything in writing,” she said.

    They’re losing it. The scandal is blindsiding them. Loosely-supervised underlings are doing stupid things.
    The screamers assume they still have the power to direct the press coverage through intimidation. This kind of gross harassment is what they have done to non-compliant reporters all along, and before now, it worked. But their mojo is fading.

    Holder’s recent explanation, that he did not understand a simple question repeated to him several times, is just an absurd and obvious lie. They got Scooter Libby on perjury for way less than this – basically, for honestly not remembering what he’d said previously.

    Who will prosecute? A special prosecutor would come from the Justice Department – an obvious potential problem given the rampant corruption there. DOJ officials have already passed evidence given to them by Issa’s congressional committee along to potential defendants in the case. Issa has said he’s delayed asking for a special prosecutor because of such concerns.

    Obama has more interest in his ”enemies,” than in criminality.
    Remember flag@whitehouse.gov?
    He wanted us all to report questionable people – like TEA partiers and gun owners.

    Evidently politicians in the House are afraid to call Holder a “liar”. Fearing lawsuits is justifiable, and branding one of Obama’s closest handlers with lying would get judicial pushback. Nevertheless, his denial of knowledge on such a critical operation is nothing but. Perjury? No kidding. And smuggling?

    The DOJ cannot appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Holder, (and inevitably Obama), particularly as this F & F operation included the White House National Security Council staff. This would never work, given the social ramifications, and the already launched social unrest being instigated by the President. Congress has to step up, independently.

    This will prove to be another example of smoke, spewing from the burning incompetence in this White House. Incompetence? Hmm, . . . . OK, maybe ‘pervasive stupidity’.

    Lamar Smith R of TX wrote President Obama a letter today, that pointed out the incongruity of Holder appointing his hand picked investigator to investigate himself. He asked the President to appoint a special counsel to conduct the investigation.

    Smith has more faith in the integrity of the president than me, but I suppose this is the proper procedure.

    What is needed here is massive loud VOLUME and exposure. Time, the most precious thing, is on our side and the timing perfect so be precise with our strategy. Special Prosecuter with the power to subpeona requiring a Special Grand Jury plus hearings before Congress starting ten months before the general election in January is ideal. The HUAC Congressional hearings were great theater, the Gangland “I take the Fifth” Kefauver (D: Tn) hearings pitting Bobby Kennedy versus Joe Columbo were great theater, the Nixon-Watergate Impeachment Hearings were great theater, the Clinton-Monica Lewinsky did he or didn’t he hearings were great theater so forcing Eric Holder to expose and explain his culpability in the Fast & Furious debacle will be great theater. Albeit, with easy access to cable, I do not own a television but Congress getting these hearings started then off to Best Buy go I to get a 50′” all plasma surround sound because watching Eric Holder dancing the Frog March will be great theater.

    This perhaps be relevant, through Netflix I am watching, examing, and getting educated from The Tudors an era we Catholic school kids heard a great deal about so to witness the royal court intrigues rife during the reign of Henry VIII fascinates. As the Richard Rich, then a base born tax collector, perjury before the Thomas More trial proved perjury, in his favor, before the king was not treason. The King’s wants were commands and if perjury and further injustices were the costs so be it.

    Holder will never give up Obama. He will stall until late in 2012 and then accept a prison sentence. Obama will then pardon him! The difficulty Obama would have is if Janet baby is also involved. If too many people are involved, there may be no place for Obama to hide. It does look like the rats are getting ready to abandon the ship.

    The Weekly Standard has this:
    Attkisson notes that the White House is claiming that a thorough investigation of the scandal is unwarranted:

    [The White House and Justice Department] will tell you that I’m the only reporter–as they told me–that is not reasonable.
    They say the Washington Post is reasonable,
    the LA Times is reasonable,
    the New York Times is reasonable,
    I’m the only one who thinks this is a story, and
    they think I’m unfair and biased by pursuing it.

    CNN’s Anderson Cooper spent an entire segment on Gunrunner, Fast&Furious, whatever you call it.
    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/2011/10/04/ac-eric-holder-fast-furious.cnn
    It was pretty fair coverage.
    Maybe Tracy Schmaler and Eric Schultz will start screaming and yelling at Anderson Cooper tomorrow.
    Jay Carney says it is alright for White House personnel to yell at reporters.

    Two other things happened.
    One:
    AP reported a partial story about how Bush did it, maybe, too.
    Only one major problem with their story.
    No proof Bush allowed any guns to get over the border, much less lost track of them.
    A minor problem with AP’s story is that only a couple of guns were involved, not thousands.

    The other:
    The LA Times is reporting that Obama/Holder are trying to do more damage control at ATF.
    Two top supervisors at ATF headquarters in Washington — the deputy director and the assistant director for all field operations — have been reassigned to lower-level positions.
    William J. Hoover, the No. 2 man at ATF, will become special agent-in-charge of the agency’s Washington field office, while Mark Chait, who ran all of the field investigations around the country, is being reassigned as head of the Baltimore field office.

    Is CBS News Silencing Fast and Furious Reporter?http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/cbs-news-silencing-fast-and-furious-reporter-due-white-house-pressure_595068.html

    Yesterday, CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told radio show host Laura Ingraham that the White House yelled and swore at her over her reporting on the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal tied to the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents. Attkisson also revealed that she’d also been yelled at by the Justice Department.

    Today, I called CBS News in an attempt to interview Attkisson. I was told by CBS News senior vice president of communications Sonya McNair that Attkisson would be unavailable for interviews all week. When I asked why Attkisson would be unavailable, McNair would not say.

    I’ve also heard from a producer at another media outlet that has previously booked Attkisson that they tried to book her since she made news with the Laura Ingraham interview yesterday. They were also told that she would be unavailable.
