Attorney General Eric Holder has resigned and the blindfold of Lady Justice rests damp with tears of joy. She is experiencing mixed emotions and a tentative reprieve from the abuse of power and misapplication of justice that has been the prevailing norm as the disgraceful rule of law over the past 6 years. This administration will undoubtedly fill the post with another pillar of injustice but the interim provides for a reparative calm between the storms.
At the risk of opening old wounds, recounting the painful, buried past and repeatedly beating a dead moose, I have compiled a succinct list of grievances against the Department of Justice under the reign of Holder and the current administration. This will undoubtedly lead to much shaking of the head and mutterings of “unbelievable”. The purpose being (along with the obligatory refrain that accompanies all tragedy, “Never Forget”) to shed light for those unaware and remind everyone that the United States was founded as a land of laws. Those in power can violate those laws, creating a de facto regime, ruling without constraint and Americans are rather helpless to hold their leaders to account. My educated guess is that all administrations have bent and/or broken laws in order to implement an agenda: Lincoln famously suspended due process during the Civil War and FDR had Americans of Japanese descent placed in detainment camps.
The Department of Justice under Eric Holder has not operated in circumstances requiring such decisions. The source of his lawlessness has been the repeated attempts to cover improper behavior and impose social justice a.k.a. equality of outcome. Americans have been at the mercy of a leader who views our society as a wasteland of racism, inequality and corporate power. Now he has resigned; good riddance.

– Members of the New Black Panther Party dressed in pseudo-military uniforms carrying batons and intimidating people who were attempting to vote. I understand that it is the prerogative of any DA to decide which cases to prosecute but… men with weapons outside a polling place… hypothetically, what if they had been wearing white hoods?
– You, me, everybody… except whomever Holder doesn’t think a coward
– He doesn’t read information, doesn’t find out, doesn’t investigate. Either absurdly incompetent or intentionally deceptive. As with Kennedy and the missing 18 minutes from Watergate, you can make up your own mind?
– The notion of “innocent until proven guilty” is compromised when the Department of Justice supports the protesters calling for a conviction of of George Zimmerman. Despite this help he was acquitted.
ILLEGAL ELECTION PROCESSES
– from Frontpagemag.com:
Eric Holder allowed that election to take place with over 4,000,000 ineligible voters on the rolls. The left-leaning Pew Foundation issued a report showing that voter rolls around the country were polluted with dead and ineligible voters. Holder is obliged to enforce federal laws which require states to remove these ineligible voters from the rolls before a federal election.
Instead, Holder has a philosophical objection to these laws and he refuses to enforce them. Failure to remove ineligible voters allows people to vote multiple times in multiple states. It allows dead voters to remain on the rolls to be voted by family members or others who know they have died. Felons who have not been removed from the rolls will also be allowed to cast illegal ballots. Since Holder alone has power to prosecute federal election crimes, we cannot count on him to do anything about voter fraud in federal elections.
Consider Meloweese Richardson in Cincinnati, Ohio. Richardson admitted on camera to news reporters that she voted multiple times for President Obama in 2012 and 2008. She voted in the names of people who spent time at her house as well as family members. She was unapologetic.
