Yeah, yeah. I know what you’re thinking. We forgive democrats and liberals of all their hypocrisy no matter what because they are naturally more caring. So, if they say something racist, sexist, classist, monstrous, engage in unethical behavior or cover up the occasional possible crime we give them a pass because they don’t really need it. However, if any conservative or Republican administration was doing the same thing this administration has been doing under Eric Holder the media would be busy gathering a lynch mob, the terms impeachment would be tossed around Congress on a daily basis, and there would be around the clock coverage on all the news channels. I’m not even kidding. Think about Cindy Sheehan the mother of slain soldier Casey Sheehan. She camped outside Crawford, attended rallies, protests, etc. and the media ate it up for several years, painting her out to be a saint of the new left. Guess what? She didn’t quit when Bush left office, she continued as she had before because of the continuing war in the middle east, not the person who was president, but now the media doesn’t cover it or care because the man in office embodies all the leftist tendencies their commie pinko hearts long for and we don’t want to tarnish that image. Here is the crux.
The same administration that came out and dictated 23 executive orders on gun control, the same administration that had children up on the stage with the President in a shameless attempt to turn the conversation from gun control to the more appealing gun violence (because gun control has a negative connotation, so you phrase it to be gun violence, and really who is for gun violence….um, no one), is now trying to cover up the records from their Fast and Furious program that put guns into the hands of criminals and were used to kill Americans and plenty of Mexican nationals. I am not kidding you.
Eric Holder and the Department of Justice have filed a motion in federal court for a “motion to stay” which would delay a lawsuit filed by the organization Judicial Watch. This indefinite delay keeps them from completing a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch when the administration denied their Freedom of Information Act request for “specifically [a]ll records subject to the claim of executive privilege invoked by President Barack Obama on or about June 20, 2012.” American people died during this Fast and Furious gun walking and the lawsuit is about the people’s right to know the truth about the entire operation and what went wrong that led to the killings and why it is so important to cover it up. The only justification that Holder is using is that the House of Representatives has also filed suit for the documents because the administration claimed “executive privilege” and refused to turn the documents over.
Never mind that Holder is in civil and criminal contempt of Congress, a criminal resolution which his own Department of Justice lawyers refuse to prosecute him for. The civil contempt is the court case trying to get the records released to Congress. So the DOJ wants to keep from fighting two battles for the same documents at the same time from two completely different organizations. I’m wouldn’t be surprised if they tried to create an infinity loop by filing for a “motion to stay” against the lawyers representing Congress.
The administration needs to cover up these documents to hide their poor record on gun control and their complicity in the murder of American citizens through a program designed to put guns in the hands of criminals and murders. I don’t suppose any of those executive orders keeps the government from giving military-style assault weapons to anyone they think should get them. I wonder what kind of double standard we are pushing or is this just part of the larger disarm Americans initiative the administration wants to engage in?
