Holder in Contempt of Congress Citation Approved


The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has approved a resolution holding Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

The measure now goes to the full House.

This after Obama today asserted Executive Privilege to congress, saying that the Justice Dept. does not have to comply with the Oversight Committee request for documentation, from Holder, for the Fast and Furious/gunrunner operation that got Brian Terry kill.

The announcement touched off a heated debate on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that lasted into the afternoon, as Democrats accused Issa of prosecuting a "political witch hunt"

Witch hunt? You've got to wonder why the left would ignore that this committee wants answers to why American guns got in to the hands of the Mexican Drug cartel and ended up killing Patrolman Terry. It's got NOTHING to do with political witch hunt. Terry Parents want ANSWERS! They deserve one.

Darrel Issa fire back at the Democrats by saying "This untimely assertion by the Justice Department falls short of any reason to delay today's proceedings,"

Republicans have more than enough votes in the house to pass the contempt of Congress.
Let’s hope they follow through with it, for Brians sake!!!

Look how much Obama has strayed from American traditions, laws and mores. How much more will he do if given a second term. In my opinion he will create chaos, declare martial law, suspend elections and end presidential term limits. I think he has called his appointees " CZARS" to get us used to hearing the term and in the end become THE czar ! As he likes to say " WE CAN'T WAIT"

By ourselves we can do nothing, together we can do what is necessary to turn the country back to American principles. If nothing else we have to work with organizations with money and moral support and vocal support to see that this president is not re-elected. . Otherwise prepare yourself to answer the question; " WHAT DID YOU DO WHILE THE COUNTRY WAS BEING STOLEN”

At this rate, Conservative Thoughts, it can be assumed he could very well declare martial law, suspend elections and end Presidential term limits.
But then again, he would find himself in the midst of a rebellion, with over half the military backing it up, if he asserted them.

My observation the last 3 years is that most Americans are waiting to see how far Obama will take his out-in-out distain of our consitution and they have, for the most part, awaken, voicing and contributing to causes that promote an attitude of “Restoring Our American Republic”, ROAR, as I like to put it.

But more NEEDS to be done.
We’re just getting warmed up.
