    We can only imagine what scandal is brewing behind the scenes. For someone this high-up the
    Obama food chain to jump ship before the mid-term elections, means something very damaging for
    the White House may be coming down the pipeline… Eric Holder (photo, left) announced today
    [September 25] that he will be resigning as US Attorney General and head of the US Department of
    Justice. Holder says he’ll be staying on until a successor is confirmed. Holder, known as ‘Obama’s
    legal pit bull’, has served as attorney general since 2009, and is regarded as the President’s closest
    person friend in the administration.


    With so much open law-breaking being done by the Federal government, and with much of it
    covered-up and contained by the Department of Justice, it’s anyone’s guess what has prompted
    Holder’s exit this week.

    What’s forced Holder into early retirement? Perhaps it’s that the Ferguson, Missouri case may not
    go the way the DOJ wants and public fall-out will be too messy. His exit could also be part of a larger
    deal cut between the opposition and the White House involving a scandal threatening to explode.

    From the beginning of Obama’s first term in 2009, Holder’s job was to protect the President from any
    legal recoiling, and to make any illegal actions appear legal on paper. The result has been a huge dent
    in the public’s confidence that the DOJ’s is able to dispense justice fairly and free of White House politics.

    Holder took it upon himself to defend the Obama White House from a string of high-profile scandals,
    often at professional and personal expense. Holder was also the first Attorney General in US
    history to be held in contempt of Congress
    – for not complying with (ignoring) Congressional
    subpoenas relating to Fast and Furious. Many saw this as proof the Holder was running a cover-up
    – not the sort of behaviour one would expect from the head of any ‘Justice Department’.

    "Critics Are Claiming This Could Be the Real Reason
    Behind Attorney General Eric Holder’s Resignation"


    by Jason Howerton
    Critics are drawing a connection between a federal judge’s recent decision to deny the Justice Department’s
    request to delay the release of a list of Fast and Furious documents and Attorney General Eric Holder’s impending resignation.

    U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates ruled against the DOJ Thursday, denying a request to delay the release of a list of
    Fast and Furious documents known as a “Vaughn index.” The information has been withheld from Congress and the public
    under President Barack Obama’s assertion of executive privilege.

    This is the problem, the politicians has had a field day of breaking laws for some time now. IMO, it started with the SNL scandal, then moved on to all those politicians that was writing bad checks. Funny how their wives fell on their swords for hubby by say that they took care of the check book.

    I wonder if that will work for me?....Hmmmmm:thinking:

    How can you make (for example) 8k a month, but write checks that exceeds that amount for months on end and not know you are in the red?

    Peace!

    I'm not quite sure what that means in the way of holder bouncing in the mist of some controversy, fast and furious being one.
    However I do look forward to that "vaughn index" report.

    I think if the truth was told about FAst and Furious, it would make a whole lot of folks look bad, including Obama. It rminds me of Oliver North and that arms deal that went bad. People in high places had to be protected, and not just Obama, which I feel is the case here.

    Peace!

    Okay.

    So let me ask you:
    Should the truth be told?

    To be honest, this is a hard one for me to answer, The truth should be told if the truth is survivable , but if the truth is going to expose plans and operations that will put folks lives in danger, then no. But based on what I know, the truth should be told. Enough of this playing all sides because the have nots are the ones that get hurt, and or lose their lives. It's too much double dealing going on. Funny how only the small fish have gotten caught, and none of the high level guys.

    I keep thinking of Tv when they catch a big crime figure, and instead of letting him face justice, some guy from the justice dept, swoops in and save him only to use him for other purposes.

    Peace!
