Time to Fire Eric Holder

Susan Stamper Brown, FloydReports.com

During a recent speech at the American Constitution Society (ACS), United States Attorney General Eric Holder lauded our American civilian court system as “our most effective terror-fighting weapon.” Holder’s address, along with his whole attorney general career, reflects a flawed ideology that believes wrapping enemy combatants in the American flag will somehow steer them towards full disclosure.

We are fooling ourselves to believe our enemies aren’t smart enough to use habeas corpus against us — which the Constitution does not extend to non-citizens held outside U.S. boundaries. While the good cop routine might work on some of the more impressionable, the determined fanatics will take advantage of the situation. Sometimes you need a “Jack Bauer” to intervene to make these people sweat.

Holder’s implied moral high ground originates from the assumption that captured enemy combatants will be mistreated – unless they are blanketed by the security of our Constitution. Holder fails to recognize that our military is bound by the same Constitution, as well as the Geneva Convention.

The last time I checked, those who strayed away from their obligations to constitutional rule of law were duly convicted of crimes. Their actions, along with those of Attorney General Holder, do nothing but undermine the efforts of so many charged with keeping the rest of us safe from the criminals they imprison.

A lack of confidence in the military tribunal system seems to pervade the Justice Department under Holder as service members assigned to Guantanamo Bay do their duty honorably and faithfully, every day.

Case in point is the recent indictment of….

    We are (according to Eric Holder) "A Nation of Cowards". And I say Hrrruummph!
    This guy is not my idea of what a Attourney General should be; He seems to be cut from the same fabric as most sleazy Chicago Politicians.

    I really hope that this gun running episode develops into impeachment proceedings against Mr. Eric Holder.
    Mr. Holder's disgracefull example of how poor choices in appointments can embarrass an entire Nation.

  2. holder is obama's clone. He needs to be investigated and see if his background papers are in order. He acts like he can't read. Everytime he has been asked if he has read a certain lawsuit or bill-he denies he has read it. Maybe they should send it in arabic.

  3. Hoodler also needs to be arrested and held without bail like his partners in crime. Our jails will be really overcrowded if truth & justice is ever restored. This Country is controlled by sinister freaks and cockroaches. What a complete disgrace to humanity and Old Glory.

    When you elect an incompetent why should you expect those whom he selects to be any different?

    IT LOOKS LIKE ALL YOU DEMOCRAT POLITITIONS ARE COMING APART AT THE SEEMS. IT WON'T BE LONG AS I'VE SAID BEFORE THAT OBAMA IS GOING TO THROW YOU UNDER THE BUS. HE KEEPS GETTING IN MORE TROUBLE AND YOU GUYS ARE THE FALL GUYS. AFTER ALL YOU SHOULD BE WORKING FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE BUT YOU ARE WORKING FOR OBAMA. THIS ALSO GOES FOR SOME OF YOU REPUBLICANS.

      Republicans, Democrats, they’re all the same. Cut from the same bold of dirty cloth. Greedy, money hungry bastards and not a care one for the people who put them where they are today. I can’t speak for the rest of you, but I have been disgusted and embarrassed now for years. Embarrassed and beyond disgusted. Except for obama, holder is the worst disgrace ever to hold office in this country. Even Nixon, and his crap was not so disgusting, nor AntiAmerican. These now who hold office in our country’s capitol are not even ProAmerican, they have proven over and over, that they are out to destroy everything that America is or ever was, and everything we ever stood for. When they are done, they want to hand our America over to the muslimEs of the world. Turn our beloved country into a muslimE hell, and make her an islimic shithole!! This is exactly what I am thinking, and I would apologize, but that would be an outright lie! And, haven’t you all had enough of outright LIES? I have, and I will not apologize for knowing the ENEMY when I see him or her! Obama and his crowd of ENEMIES are exactly that, and every muslimE that enters into our country, and does not want to assimilate into our world, is our ENEMY!!!! And, anyone born here who wants to become filthy, a muslimE, is also the ENEMY, and should be sent packing upon discovery!!!!!!! I am an AMERICAN, I LOVE MY COUNTRY AND ALL SHE WAS BEFORE THESE FILTHY MUSLIMES INFESTED AND INFECTED HER SO!!!!!! AND ATTACKED HER ON SEPTEMBER 11, 2001!!!!!!

    As Dennis Miller calls Holder, Steadman he should be jailed in Gitmo and tried for treason.Him and Obuma go after states who want good immigration laws and side with foreign(Mexico)countries to go after American states something is wrong there.Plus they are always for muslims,black panthers and American haters so it's time to bouce this turkey.

  7. Alexander Kaminski says:

    Many experts have concluded that the birth certificate that Obama released on April/27/11 is a forgery. The US House of Representatives has voted down a measure giving President Barack Obama the authority to continue the U.S. military action against Libya. House Republican leaders pushed for the vote, with rank-and-file members saying Obama broke the law by failing to seek congressional approval for the 3-month-old war. I think that there is enough evidence to show that he was not born in this Country and that he is not legible to occupy the office of a President of USA. I feel that it is high time for Mr. Boehner, the Speaker of the US House of Representatives to start the impeachment procedures against Obama now.

  8. Beverly Charbonneau says:

    Holder must go, but until we get rid of Obama, I doubt it. He is such a feckless little man, just like his boss, but with the money and radicals behind them, they've managed to get away with way too much already.

  9. TexasVetgal says:

    Holder and his minions are a disgrace to the legal profession, he lied to a congressional investigation head by Darrell Issa's ethics commitee, he fails to uphold the Constitution that he swore an OATH to do so. Now hes fired an ATF wistleblower for shedding disenfecting light on the Gun Running scheme Holder himself authorized, there are many more ATF agents to come forward that will further indict Holder for his incompetence and illegal activities within the DOJ. Remove Holder and charge him with crimes, along with Obama and the rest of his Marxist lieing frauds who continue to destroy this country.

  10. Roger Smart says:

    Eric Holder is just merely a puppet! He is not a very good Attorney General! He was given power thru Obama and they both deserve to be impeached. This is our President at his best. He simply can not be trusted because he does not trust the American people of this country.
    President Obama is a very evil individual and so is Eric Holder. Get these damn DEMORATDS out of office, because they have already destroyed this country. Any person who votes for this idiot has some issues.
