A Federal Court smacked down Eric Holder’s Justice Department today when it refused to block North Carolina’s “controversial” voter ID law. The law, which simply requires voters to bring a valid ID to prove their citizenship, was attacked in a lawsuit brought by the Justice Department last September.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, decscribed the decision as a huge setback to Eric Holder:

“It is an embarrassing defeat for the Holder Justice Department. The court’s decision eviscerates Eric Holder’s politicized and racially inflammatory legal assault on commonsense election integrity measures. The court expressly rejected the Department of Justice’s contention that minorities are harmed by commonsense measures that help secure honest elections. The court’s dramatic rejection of Holder’s legal theory shows that that the DOJ’s lawsuit, which was coordinated with political activists at the White House, was always more about cynical political and racial appeals than upholding the law.”

What Trey Gowdy Says At The End Of This Interview Should Shock Every American…

Jake Tapper of CNN’s “The Lead” had Rep. Trey Gowdy on to talk about the Benghazi investigation try to poke holes in any Benghazi investigation.

Tapper played video of the former deputy director of the CIA, Michael Morrell, testifying that the CIA did believe that the video could be involved.  He obviously thought that this negated any need for an investigation by Trey Gowdy and the special committee and proceeded to ask Gowdy to comment on the CIA director’s comments.

Trey Gowdy has a great response. But what he says at the end should shock every American. If its truly this bad, then this investigation is going to bring a lot of people down.

Smoking Gun? Watch Leaked Video Of Lois Lerner Discussing Targeting Conservatives

Lois Lerner speaks at the Sanford School of Public Policy on October 19, 2010.  This video was released in 2013; but as the cover-up continues, it’s important that people understand the pressure surrounding Lois Lerner in the lead-up to the 2012 election to target conservative non-profit groups.  The most important question to ask is, “Where was this pressure coming from?” If it was from the White House, which many believe it was, this is probably the biggest scandal in Obama’s presidency.

If you support Congress taking action where Eric Holder won’t, and arresting Lois Lerner, then sign this petition. http://www.westernjournalism.com/polls-and-petitions/arrest-lois-lerner-petition/
