The truth is that political corruption is bi-partisan; with only the consumers being screwed!


Once more we appear to have an inkling that Lindsay Graham is following in the aisle-hopping RINO (Republican In Name Only) footsteps of his mentor and BFF, John McCain …

Progressive Eric Holder, dealing with issues of interfering with the mainstream media, and especially targeting Fox News, turns to the two most progressive people in the socialist democrat party, Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) … and for some inexplicable reason to RINO republican Lindsey Graham. One would think that he would want to talk to the actual leadership of the House or Senate – but then again, they might be less sympathetic to his progressive cause than Lindsey Graham.

By week’s end, Holder knew he had to be proactive in stemming the criticism and restoring the department’s credibility with the press. He and his advisers began exploring ways to reform the Justice Department’s internal guidelines for investigating leaks to safeguard the media against overly intrusive tactics. (Obama announced a review of the guidelines during a major speech on counterterrorism last Thursday.) Meanwhile, on Friday, Holder made a round of calls to Capitol Hill in an attempt to mollify concerned lawmakers. In calls to Sens. Charles Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Holder said he understood why there had been such an outcry over his department’s actions. As one of Holder’s advisers put it, the message was: “Look we get it. We understand why this is so controversial, and we’re ready to make changes to find the right balance.” At the same time, Holder enlisted their help to get a media-shield law passed in Congress. (On Sunday, Schumer announced the formation of a bipartisan “gang of eight” to press for the legislation.)

As attorney general, a position at the intersection of law, politics, and investigations, Holder has been at the center of partisan controversy almost since taking office. But sources close to the attorney general says he has been particularly stung by the leak controversy, in large part because his department’s—and his own—actions are at odds with his image of himself as a pragmatic lawyer with liberal instincts and a well-honed sense of balance—not unlike the president he serves. “Look, Eric sees himself fundamentally as a progressive, not some Torquemada out to silence the press,” says a friend who asked not to be identified. And yet late last week even the progressive Huffington Post was calling for Holder to step down over the leaks furor. (Obama has continued to express confidence in his attorney general, and Holder has given no indication that he would step aside.) Source: Holder’s Regrets and Repairs - The Daily Beast

This story is troubling on a number of issues …

  1. Eric Holder bypassed the leadership of the Republicans to seek a friendly RINO in the person of Lindsey Graham.
  2. The mainstream media has seemingly adopted Chinese and Russian communist terminology such as “Gang of Eight” and “Czars” when speaking about American government.
  3. The democrats now label anything containing at least one RINO as being bi-partisan.
  4. The larger story is being spun as Holder as being subject to “partisan controversy” – rather than the truth that Holder continues to violate the United States Constitution and his oath of office.
  5. The media thinks Holder sees himself as a “pragmatic lawyer with liberal instincts and a well-honed sense of balance.” Nothing could be further from the truth as Holder’s function is to protect his BFF Barack Obama and do what is ever necessary to cover-up democrat violations of election law and campaign finance – and to harass republicans and their donors, not to mention delay any investigation that might prove embarrassing or illegal (aka Fast and Furious, Benghazi, AP, Rosen, etc.)
  6. Note the comparison with Barack Obama: “not unlike the president he serves.” The only thing Holder and the President have in common is that they are lawyers, they are incompetent, hyper-partisan, and have little or no sense of shame, that is, until the day they are exposed for what they are and have done.
  7. What kind of friend offers compliments and requests anonymity?
  8. Obama needs to express confidence in his attorney general, lest he be left without protection from any high crimes and misdemeanors which could see him impeached, tried, and convicted.

Bottom line …

Lindsey Graham is a RINO. Graham's call for a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS appears to be a dodge; as a special prosecutor is likely to complete the investigation after Barack Obama is out of office -- which means after the upcoming election cycles. Eric Holder needs to resign or be impeached.
