Fox News’ Brit Hume managed to say a lot tonight in very few words, laying out the basics of the Eric Holder/Fox News spying scandal. How is it that Holder could testify under oath that he’d never heard of journalists being prosecuted by the Justice Department when he personally signed the warrant accusing reporter James Rosen of criminal activity?

    I shop judges all the time. Who doesn’t? How is Holder supposed to remember every time he shopped judges to approve a warrant? Stop the witch hunt, wingnuts!!

    • Clayton Grant

      After a few judges refused to sign the warrant, a normal person’s brain would go “click”.

      • bob60506

        Oh, it clicked, alright. Holder simply wouldn’t take “NO!” for an answer, in the end. Of course, this is not to imply that he’s “normal;” far be it from me to insult normal people like that.

      • http://www.irregulars.us/ towerclimber37

        what I want to know is which IDIOT JUDGE signed the warrant?? and how fast can we get them out of that position??

    • betzinva

      Do you routinely present false information to a judge? If there was no intent to prosecute Rosen, why in paragraph 45 is “potential” prosecution mentioned. Can’t have it both ways…either they lied to the judge or they lied to Congress . Having a serious problem with the JUSTICE department engaging in such behavior doesn’t make me a wingnut, it makes me a defender of my Constitution, and a citizen who expects proper behavior of attorneys in the criminal justice system.

            Hardest lesson I’ve learned in life is admitting I’m wrong(and how it get’s easier with age). The next hardest is saying I don’t know. I just wish the DoJ were more proficient in the first and less in the latter(especially since no one with an extant cell functioning in their brainbox would buy the latter).

      As the names of the main Communist newspaper and the main Soviet newspaper, Pravda and Izvestia, meant “the truth” and “the news” respectively, a popular Russian saying was “v Pravde net izvestiy, v Izvestiyakh net pravdy” (In the Truth there is no news, and in the News there is no truth).

      • stuckinIL4now

        Reminded me of the same. A caller to Rush’s show the other day mentioned this to guest host Mark Steyn. And withHolder probably didn’t actually “sign” it, he just rubber-stamped it cuz I’d bet there are countless of those rubber stamps with his faux signature on it floating around the DOJ.

          No, he thought he was feeding it into the shredder but “accidentally” fed it into the robo-signing machine. /sarc

      He’s the ATTORNEY GENERAL, for cryin’ out loud. If HE doesn’t understand the ramifications of SIGNING something, WTF is he doing wearing the AG hat? Obama damn near slobbers all over himself in expressing complete confidence in Holder’s qualifications and performance as the top Justice official in the Federal Government and we’re supposed to believe Holder didn’t know what he signed, but signed it anyway, knowing what the potential consequences are for signing something ILLEGALLY? Don’t fall for it; he knows DAMN WELL what he’s signing.

    Ok folks, its all over, time to concentrate with the 5 year ongoing campaign or another distraction. We have much bigger problems then the ongoing IRS Scandal and a few ‘rogue employees’, DOJ lying to the American People, and / or the Benghazi cover up…lets get over the little humps. I mean, mainstream media isnt reporting as much as it should if it were really big….is it really that much of a big problem? hmmmm.

    One bullet each. Back of the head. DHS has almost enough ammo to clean up government, though a couple of deeply entrenched bureaucrats may require a double-tap. I am sick of this to the point of wishing people dead, by violent means, at the hands of Patriots.

  • Gallatin

    Thomas Corbitt
    @tcorbitt20
    @brithume so he signed the warrant but he’d never heard about it? How does that work?

    It is going to work the same as shrillary’s explanation for Benghazi that went something like this; “there are thousands of people that work for the State Department all over the world, no one individual can be expected to keep up with all the communications from all the embassies. In fact when Benghazi was going on I was reading an email from our Swiss embassy concerning the need to buy new silverware.”

    Little eric holder is going to come up with something similar.

    LET’S FORGET HOLDER for a second, other than to ask HOW could this man survive just one of the emergent scandals of the Obama-Holder ‘one headed’ political ‘crusher’, the IRS debacle. That is just the visible end of a laundry list of assaults against the sensibilities of the American people beginning two months in to the first Obama term with his then (what seemed very curious) ‘We are still a nation of racist cowards’ invective, but which upon hind sight makes sense: That was the scripted, evil, pre-planned war between the races. The beginning of the Community Organizer Barack Obama’s and Eric Holders divisive return to Jim Crow days, denying every accomplishment that has occurred in between, for political gain. And outrageously followed up by the horrific Holder’s edict that the crime committed against whites at a polling place by ball bat wielding Black Panthers was acceptable because it was ‘Black on white.’ Intimidation and tampering with the rights of voters was sanctioned by this awful man. Which was, lets call it for what it was, ‘voter supression’ just as the IRS suppressed the rights of conservative donators by the Democrat party and it looks mightily like it goes right to the top in its inception and lanning. Why else 118 visits to the White House by the Director of the IRS, Douglas Schulman? Forget all that. If you think because Britt Hume just ‘did his job’ and ‘busted Holder’ with hard cold facts, please do not assume the MSM will follow suit and ‘do THIER jobs…not until unvetted (to this day) Barack Obama is removed from service as the 44th and 45th President of these lame, bruised and beaten down divided (certainly not united) by Barack Obama, States of America.

    Holder and a lot of Obama’s other Communist appointees can be deposed once Obama is gone. What needs to be talked about is Judicial appointments. They are forever and they are already approving things like the Google Grab that was unheard of 10 years ago. When the Communists hold both the executive branch and the judicial branch we are doomed to live with trash like Holder, Lerner, Shulman etc.

    Holder’s quandary: Do I admit to lying to Congress, or do I admit to lying to a federal judge? Do I deal with this before I deal with the IRS, or after? Or after the IRS but before I deal with the AP and James Rosen? Or after James Rosen and the AP but before the IRS?

    Dear Mr. Holder,

    When life finds you torn between such choices, it’s a sure sign that you are f&^%$ing up by the numbers. You have the Obama stink all over you now.

    Obama, Holder, Clinton and the rest of that gang are undoubtedly guilty;
    BUT
    it will NOT bring any disapproval from zealots like Schumer, Pelosi or Durbin;
    nor the tens of millions who rely upon them to provide Obamacash.
    America has not been this divided since the Civil War.
