Holder: Go Ahead and Riot. We Won’t Stop You

FBI warns Ferguson grand jury decision ‘will likely’ lead to violence | Fox News

The FBI is warning law enforcement agencies nationwide that a grand jury’s decision on whether a Missouri police officer will face charges for killing Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old, “will likely” lead to attacks on police officers and key infrastructure.

Okay….

 Holder urges police restraint in Ferguson response

WASHINGTON — Before a decision by a St. Louis County grand jury weighing the fatal shooting of an unarmed teenager by a police officer, Attorney General Eric Holder urged law enforcement authorities Friday to minimize the potential for confrontations during possible demonstrations.

So.  Holder’s FBI says riots and violence will likely occur if Darren Wilson isn’t indicted, and then Holder tells the cops to let them run wild if they do indulge in violent rioting.

Are we sure this is the message we want our nation’s highest law enforcement official to be sending?

Liars In the Government, Incompetent Hacks In the Press – I Wonder If There Is Any Connection?

30,000 missing emails from IRS’ Lerner recovered | WashingtonExaminer.com

Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever.

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up the IRS email system.

“They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes,” a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner.

Lying sacks of shit:

IRS Admits to Court it Hasn’t Searched for Missing Lerner Emails – Judicial Watch -NOVEMBER 05, 2014

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) admitted to the court that it failed to search any of the IRS standard computer systems for the “missing” emails of Lois Lerner and other IRS officials.

The admission appears in an IRS legal brief opposing the Judicial Watch request that a federal court judge allow discovery into how “lost and/or destroyed” IRS records relating to the targeting of conservative groups may be retrieved.

The IRS is fighting Judicial Watch’s efforts to force testimony and document production about the IRS’ loss of records in Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) litigation about the IRS targeting of Tea Party and other opponents of President Obama(Judicial Watch v. IRS (No. 1:13-cv-1559)).  The lawsuit is before U.S. District Court Judge Emmett G. Sullivan.

What burns me even more than the IRS lying here – it’s part of the government, of course it’s going to lie – is that “reporters”  (like this Susan Ferrechio) let those lies go unchallenged, without even the most rudimentary fact-checking of the sort I just did.

Shocker: Latino Spox Demands More, More, More!

Univision’s Jorge Ramos: Obama Paying Off ‘Debt’ to Latinos | Truth Revolt

Univision anchor Jorge Ramos described Obama’s executive action on immigration as paying a “debt” to the Latino community. In an interview with Fusion colleague Alicia Menendez, Ramos denied that Obama had kept his promises on immigration in full, since he had pledged to take action in his first year in office. But Ramos concluded:

What President Barack Obama is doing right now is paying a debt to the Latino community, and honestly, it’s an important victory for the Latino community.

Ramos went on to say that the President must do more, and was still leaving out 6 million undocumented aliens that need help.

I’ll bet you’re really surprised by this, right?

You know what they really want, right?

A wide-open border with Mexico and full automatic legal status immediately upon entering the United States.

Is that what you want?

If not, then stop voting for Gentry GOP politicians made for an amnesty of their own.

 

Don’t Use “Republicans” and “Fight” In the Same Sentence
Bill Quick

Republicans Leave Town Without A Plan To Fight Obama

“That’s the hundred million dollar question,” said Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-OH), “How do you stop an inaction? That’s the tough question that I don’t have the answer to today….Just to go a step further: ‘shut the government down.’ That doesn’t stop this inaction. Don’t fund immigration service. That doesn’t stop this inaction. How do you stop this inaction?”

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers attempted to throw cold water on the idea of using spending bills to prohibit funding for employment documents for illegal aliens, saying that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is funded by fees it collects, inuring itself from a shutdown.

“To alter or change the fee matter, it would take a change of law – an authorization – to change the immigration act that setup the fee structure. It would take an act of Congress,” Rogers told reporters.

Censuring Obama, a non-binding step short of impeachment suggested by top immigration hawk Rep. Steve King (R-IA), is finding quick opposition among more senior members.

“That doesn’t stop the action of the executive order. That’s what we have to be smart about this. I think he wants us to do that. In a really weird way, I think he wants us to be fighting him on a personal level and not focused on the issues, because he got beat on the issues in the November election. If we make this about him – which I think he wants us to, that’s why he’s doing this – it’s a huge distraction on all the policy issues, [like] repealing pieces of Obamacare,” Tiberi said.

One avenue thought to hold promise even by more establishment-type Republicans is legal action, although it could take years to see resolution.

“Ultimately this fight might end up at the Supreme Court,” Tiberi said.

Keep in mind that the GOP desperately wants amnesty as badly as the Democrats do.  Once you understand this, these reactions make a hell of a lot more sense.

Pournelle’s Basic Misunderstanding of the Failed Amnesties

Amnesty but do not panic; Women in Combat; the Caliphate continues; A treat for all scholars. – Chaos Manor – Jerry Pournelle

President Reagan thought an amnesty coupled with more vigorous control of the border would be the solution to a much smaller problem. It wasn’t, and the problem grew. Mr. Obama should think about that; certainly the Congressional leaders will.

Why?  Obama and the Democrats don’t regard the failure of Reagan’s “solution” as failure for them.

Grubez “Invited” To Testify Before Issa’s Committee on Transparency

Awesome. If Grubez refuses the invitation, he might get a subpoena instead.

If they were serious, they’d have subpoenaed him right out of the box.

Now we get the usual song-and-dance:  Gruber refuses to appear, pleading executive privilege.  Gentry GOP harrumphs, mutters, grumbles.

Six months down the road, when nobody even remembers Gruber’s name, they finally get around to issuing a subpoena.    Gruber refuses to appear.  GOP censures him or something.  Wash, rinse, repeat.

It’s all kabuki, all the way down.

On the Illegal Obama Amnesty
Bill Quick

Republicans, some of whom still believe in the rule of law, seem shocked at the President’s vicious assault on the Constitution, on separation of powers, and on the Republic itself.  That they are shocked in the first place is a sad reflection on how they view the world and the left’s strategies and tactics within the world, and their shock exposes the deadly, self-imposed handicap under which they labor.

Imagine that you are sending your army off to Europe to fight the Nazis.  Imagine that you establish the following ground rules:

1.  Marquis of Queensbury rules only for your troops:  No biting, no gouging, no hitting below the belt.  After all, we are gentlemen.

2.  The enemy, on the other hand, will be free to use any methods, no matter how unfair or underhanded, because, after all, they aren’t gentlemen, and we can expect no better of them.

Now imagine that this is an existential battle, that is, that if you lose, you will be destroyed and your cause and your beliefs will die with you.

If that is the case, does it make any sense for you to impose such fatal restrictions on yourself?   And why would you be shocked that the enemy bites, gouges, hits below the belt, and in every other way takes full advantage of your self-imposed weaknesses?  After all, they intend to win.  It is, however, questionable – to say the least – as to what your intentions are.

The shorter take:  If the GOP says to Obama:  “We’ll take impeachment off the table.  We’ll take the power of the purse off the table.  We’ll put our strongest constitutional weapons in the lockbox under the bed.”

Then why on earth would you be surprised to find that Obama immediately moves to take advantage of your weakness?

How Obama Betrayed Black Workers Last Night | National Review Online

President Obama last night removed any remaining doubt that he shares Jonathan Gruber’s assessment of the American voter. The group toward whom he’s shown the greatest contempt, however, is low-skilled American workers, particularly blacks.

Doesn’t matter.  He knows blacks will vote for him anyway.  They’re as suicidal as the reflexively robotic GOP voters.
