Eric Holder canceled Oklahoma speech for fear of being arrested

Our DreamThe U.S. Attorney General (AG) is the head of the federal government’s Department of Justice and the chief law enforcement officer of the United States government.

On Thursday, April 24, 2014, AG Eric Holder was scheduled to address 42 new police officers at the police academy graduation in Oklahoma City.

CBS News says that “Facing a tight schedule and complaints from conservatives,” Holder abruptly canceled his speech.

Todd Ceferatti reports for TPNN, the Tea Party News Network, that the real reason was that “protest organizers called for the new law enforcement officers to place the Attorney General in handcuffs for his wanton disregard for law and order …. Hundreds of citizens were to be joined by law enforcement officials and other irate patriots who still labor under the idea that the Attorney General ought to be held accountable by the law.”

Congressman James Lankford (R-Oklahoma), who is running for the U.S. Senate, called Holder’s visit inappropriate given Holder’s “tactics of obfuscation and redirection of blame … his numerous questionable decisions, his unwillingness to cooperate with congressional investigations and his Justice Department’s opacity under this President.”

Lankford said Holder “would not be my first choice to stand as this Administration’s example of justice, leadership and integrity” and that “Holder’s action before Congress and his unwillingness to cooperate with our investigations of Operation Fast & Furious, the IRS targeting scandal and numerous other Justice Department boondoggles led the U. S. House to finally hold him in Contempt of Congress. For an executive agency with ‘justice’ in their title, they seem remarkably reticent to seek it when it involves their boss.”

Although as the U.S. government’s chief law enforcement officer, Holder is supposed to ensure that the laws of the land are being enforced, he himself picks and chooses which laws will or will not be enforced on his watch:

  • One of Holder’s first item of business after being appointed Attorney General was to drop the case against club-carrying New Black Panthers who intimidated white voters outside voting stations in Philadelphia in 2008.
  • Holder has refused to defend traditional marriage, codified in law by the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). After DOMA was scrapped. he’s advised state governments to not enforce laws on the books related to marriage and immigration issues.
  • Holder has worked to block voter ID laws while claiming that voter fraud is not a problem.
  • Holder refuses to hold himself or his department accountable for the gun-running scheme, Fast and Furious, that left Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry dead and firearms in the hands of Mexican drug cartels. For that, Holder was found to be in contempt of Congress.

    that picture needs to happen for sure,those guys are making Al Compone look like a Angel.

  3. And for all you low information liberals who believe the propaganda fed to you by the democrats

    History reveals that every piece of racist legislation that was ever passed and every racist terrorist attack that was ever inflicted on African Americans, was initiated by the members of the Democratic Party. From the formation of the Democratic Party in 1792 to the Civil Rights movement of 1960’s, Congressional records show the Democrat Party passed no specific laws to help Blacks, every law that they introduced into Congress was designed to hurt blacks in 1894 Repeal Act. The chronicles of history shows that during the past 160 years the Democratic Party legislated Jim Crows laws, Black Codes and a multitude of other laws at the state and federal level to deny African Americans their rights as citizens.

    History reveals that the Republican Party was formed in 1854 to abolish slavery and challenge other racist legislative acts initiated by the Democratic Party.

    Some called it the Civil War, others called it the War Between the States, but to the African Americans at that time, it was the War Between the Democrats and the Republicans over slavery. The Democrats gave their lives to expand it, Republican gave their lives to ban it.

    During the Senate debates on the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, it was revealed that members of the Democratic Party formed many terrorist organizations like the Ku Klux Klan to murder and intimidate African Americans voters. The Ku Klux Klan Act was a bill introduced by a Republican Congress to stop Klan Activities. Senate debates revealed that the Klan was the terrorist arm of the Democratic Party.

    Whoa!! So this is where the old, white, wet dream wingnuts come to die!!

  5. Bud Parker says:

    Everyone should have kept their collective mouths shut and let him show up. We need someone, somewhere to set the pace for reclaiming America for the Citizens.

  6. SWFL-Archer 2 says:

    HE is safe in the Sovereign territory of DC the moment he heads out of ther eit is game on for whoever wants to arrest his lanky a$$.

    With that said i hope more states are gunning to clink him up with matching bracelets and cart him off to jail.

    Sheriffs need to be on watch for this fools travel itinerary.

    I am sure there is a laundry list of constitutional sheriffs who want this fellow in their fish tank, at county.

  7. Aaron Nelson says:

    He knows he’s a criminal. His day is coming. I hope that somehow they will all be tried as traitors, holder, Obama.. the entire camp

  8. anti obama says:

    Obama is that you in jail hope you get raped in jail and made soneones bitch you fucken nigger

  9. average joe says:

    Where in the hell dose holder think he can hide after obama? He will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Same as obama.

  10. How can we get obama to fear being arrested for speaking in ANY STATE??

    • average joe says:

      You mean EVERY state

    • we need to take obama’s pens away from him no more executive orders, then we might get some where. they were right should have let him go speak ,he would have looked good in bracelets

    • Bill T. says:

      You have to impeach him first…(holder you can arrest on site)…but the in the constitution….You cannot arrest and try a sitting president until he is made available by impeachment…..Obama could kill a baby on stage and drip the blood on his teleprompters and we STILL could not touch him until he is impeached…………….or wait till the end of term

  11. oldmanrick says:

    the only reason the brat isn’t in jail is that Holder and Reid are protecting the child king’s posterior at the request of the real boss, Valerie Jarrett; and the Only reason Holder and Reid are out and about is that the child emperor wannabe is ruled by the real boss, Valerie Jarrett.

    • ashley robinson says:

      the idea that valerie jarrett is the puppet master is asinine. can you honestly say you think nobody is above jarrett?

  12. Mac in AZ says:

    Holder and his messiah O’dickhead are both guilty of murder in the fiasco of Fast & Furious – which was obviously a policy decision straight from the policy makers in order to subvert public opinion in relation to Orwellian new gun laws…..

    It’s as obvious as Hitlers role in the Holocaust…..

    A much better form of punishment would be a good old fashioned tar & feathering followed by a pinata party = where Holder & Obama’s bodies are pummeled with Louisville Sluggers…..

  13. priceless22 says:

    The descriptive word “scum” come to mind, when I hear or read Holder’s name.

  14. Marilyn Z says:

    This is pathetic and funny at the same time. The very fact that we have such a divide in this country that the US AG is afraid to go to any state is quite a testament to the thought extremes we have.

    When I heard he was going there in the first place I was puzzled as to what kind of intel the man has privy to. I would stay totally out of the heartland if I were him just as I stay out of the rough parts of big cities.

  15. rbodell says:

    If he was going to be arrested they would have gone to his home or office.
