    Yes, at least Ashcroft had the smarts to leave AFTER he managed to smoke most of the Bill of Rights with the “Patriot Act”!
    I will give him credit for that much.

    He should be walking BO. But the important thing is now that the election is over we the people can be told the truth about his lies before congress. Obama’s minions and Lackeys have managed to get him re elected with their lies and Obama has been isolated from the fall out. He knows nothing that went wrong don’t you know. He is mad that it happened and will get to the bottom of it. right?

    You will not be told the truth until Congress leaves this corrupt administration no other choice.

    Apparently when you have the evidence on the table and the AP starts to step up and stand with what Fox News has been saying for many months or even years, you still seem to say they are spewing lies. What will it take for you to stop saying this? Do you believe four people were killed in Benghazi, the IRS targeted the Right and Religious, the Government went after Fox News while it attempted to use the rouse of the leaking of guarded information? Why do you say Fox is telling lies? Just because your people are not saying it does not make it is a lie. I wait for my local news to tell me what it happening to this Country and my State, but instead, I get told about fluff going on in the neighborhood or what latest liberties that the radicals want to get rid of.

    Just a thought…do you think the President of General Motors knows exactly what every employee in every dealership around the world is doing?
    If you get a lousy oil change on your car, do you think the President of G.M. should be fired?
    NO, you get rid of the guy who did the lousy work, and if it is shop policy, you fire the Service Manager. If it’s dealership policy, you get rid of the Manager. You work your way UP the chain of command, eliminating the source of the problem as you go.
    If Holder did order illegal wiretaps, or whatever, yes he needs to go, but if it was a mid-level flunky, HE’S the one to be prosecuted.
    Knee-jerk reactions are VERY rarely correct.
    Just sayin…

    The right-wing flaps over Holder make me reflect, as the “righties” should on “history” from Ashcroft in a minor incident censoring “Lady Justice” with a blue drape (think “blue dress” at the same hypocritical time), to Gonzales declaring torture “legal” despite international law and Geneva Conventions (yes, they ARE plural), and back to good old Ed Meese and all his criminal activities, and spying on people illegally.


    If Republicans don’t want their laws enforced, they shouldn’t write them! (And no, I do NOT like some, like Patriot Act and insane war on marijuana being pursued to the extent they are, no matter WHO is getting “carried away” with the law on their side.)

    @dtroutma

    TROUT: Actually, Holder used a provision of the 1918 revision of the 1917 Sedition Act to convince a Judge to sign the search warrant— the 3rd Judge they approached, after the first 2 wouldn’t sign it. And that judge has since appologized and said he was lied to. It wasn’t the Patriot Act! (Not that you’ll care or change your talking points.)

    Next thing you’ll be telling us is it’s Boooosh’s fault Wildrow Wilson passed the Sedition Act. I wait with baited breath.

    A mid level flunkey you met with the president many times and lied to congress about information that would have shed a bad light on the president before an election. He is no mid level anything, he is good friends with obama and put his butt on the line to either keep Obama in the dark or to protect Obama from what they believed. There is no in between. mid level my aunt pa to e.

    IF If If? Do you still believe benghazi was because of a YouTube Video and that it was spontaneous? In Egypt they were not chanting “Obama we are Osama”
    But difference does it make now right? Obama got elected.

    but but but bush…
    Bengazi just like the IRS is just another Obama snow job before the election. If the truth was known before the election then maybe the election would have turned different. The groups that were set into limbo by IRS might have been able to bring out the truth.

    @David

    What “Egypt chanting” are you babbling about? "
    Thank you for showing your ignorance and how the lame stream media was fully into Obama. If it had been bush say 9 11 03 and not 9 11 12, Bush had is guys chanting Gm alive Bin dead and so forth. Well i am sure you would have known about the riots in Egypt. They were chanting “Obama we are Osama” Then “spontaneously” elsewhere they were ATTACKING our embassies and MURDERING the 1st ambassador since carter. Why i bet Michael Moron would have done a whole hit piece doc on it. But sadly we get a guy who is off the clock at 5. Not to be seen becuase things did not go as planned and it might not look good when it does not fit his narrative. Obama can count on moderators to lie for him in debates. And who is going to speak out against him? The IRS has his back.
    Yes they were chanting in Egypt “Obama we are Osama” We are just lucky that Obama’s arab spring has not turn to a nuclear winter nightmare.

    DAVID asks me: “I’d love to see your verifiable and respectable sources for those statements. I actually heard that the warrants were signed by Cheney and just weren’t used until recently.”

    You are one of the most partisan dummies on this site, so I doubt this will appease you:

    It was first reported in The New Yorker, then picked up byDrudge Drudge and Brietbart. I doubt the NYTimes reported it, but the Washington Post did.

    “The Obama Administration fought to keep a search warrant for James Rosen’s private e-mail account secret, arguing to a federal judge that the government might need to monitor the account for a lengthy period of time.

    The new details are revealed in a court filing detailing a back and forth between the Justice Department and the federal judges who oversaw the request to search a Gmail account belonging to Rosen, a reporter for Fox News….

    The new documents show that two judges separately declared that the Justice Department was required to notify Rosen of the search warrant, even if the notification came after a delay.>/b> Otherwise: “The subscriber therefore will never know, by being provided a copy of the warrant, for example, that the government secured a warrant and searched the contents of her e-mail account,” Judge John M. Facciola wrote in an opinion rejecting the Obama Administration’s argument.

    Machen appealed that decision, and in September, 2010, Royce C. Lamberth, the chief judge in the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia, granted Machen’s request to overturn the order of the two judges….

    NBC News reported that the warrant to search Rosen’s e-mail account was personally approved by Holder.


    Of course, you could have just googled “Holder judge shopping” and got 8,250,000 hits, but that’s just me.

    But it’s not your fault you’re uninformed. According to Newsbusters :

    " Not surprisingly, there has been yet another revelation in the unfolding of the James Rosen investigation scandal. On Tuesday, it was discovered that Attorney General Eric Holder went “judge shopping” to find someone who would sign off on a subpoena of Fox News Correspondent James Rosen’s personal records. Apparently, Holder went to three different federal judges before he found one that would agree to sign the subpoena without telling Rosen or Fox News.

    However, the only morning show coverage of this important development in this scandal was found on the Fox and Friends; no other network or cable show devoted a sentence to educate the public about this discovery.

    Additionally, on Tuesday afternoon news broke that the House Judiciary Committee was investigating whether or not Holder had committed perjury by lying about his involvement in the subpoenaing of Rosen’s personal emails and phone records while under oath in his Congressional hearing May 15. Holder claimed to have no involvement in the matter, but it was later revealed that he had personally signed off on the decision to investigate Rosen.

    Fox News devoted 20 minutes of its morning show Fox &Friends to cover this significant development in this scandal that has attempted to criminalize journalism, while two of the other three networks did not cover this story at all Wednesday morning. CBS was the only other network to report on it at all; however, they only deemed it worthy of two minutes of coverage on CBS This Morning.

    These were stories that were widely available to all the news networks. They were not private and exclusive reports by Fox News to which the other networks did not have access. So why then, besides their vested corporate interest in defending their own, was Fox the only network to devote significant time to these discoveries? It was because the other networks have such strong liberal leanings.

    The other news networks committed what is known as bias by omission. By devoting very little coverage to the Holder perjury story and no coverage at all to the “judge shopping” revelation, the liberal media lay bare their political tendencies"


    As far as this technically being a use of the Espionage Act of 1917 and not the Patriot act: from Wikipedia :

    In August 2010, Stephen Jin-Woo Kim, a contractor for the State Department and a specialist in nuclear proliferation, was indicted under the Act for alleged disclosure of national defense information 18 U.S.C. § 793(d) in June 2009 to reporter James Rosen of Fox News, related to North Korea’s plans to test a nuclear weapon.9596"

    As far as your Cheney crack, I’m not sure if you’re serious, but if you are, I’d look around for other sources.
