Holder's Stonewalling is Abhorrent
by Lee S Gliddon Jr
For 16 long months the Attorney General of the United States of America, Eric Holder, has been negligent in his duties to obey the Constitution he has sworn to uphold. Worse yet President Obama is aiding and abetting Holder's actions.
The Party of the Left, Democrats, are claiming the Fast and Furious investigation is a 'political witch hunt.' They actually refuse to admit that their Party, in its silence, has taken the role of co-conspirator in the actions undertaken by the departments which allowed this entire disgusting series of activities to occur. Instead of wanting to get to the bottom of the actual events they would rather act the part of a petulant child and deny the facts of this matter.
It is common knowledge among the ATF, Border Patrol, DOJ, FBI, CIA and other governmental departments that Fast and Furious was undertaken to secure reasons to enforce gun control on American citizens. Even with this being factual Democrats refuse to take responsibility for the illicit acts as performed by Eric Holder.
By a vote of 23 to 17 the Congressional Committee passed a resolution that would allow the entire House of Representatives to cast votes respecting this matter. Sadly there was not a single Democrat that saw the law as worthy of being upheld. Instead of doing their sworn duty the allowed Party loyalty to rule their votes!
In my mind this is a matter of extreme importance that must be dealt with in a timely manner. To allow Holder and his boss, Barack Obama, to continue their unconstitutional ways only speaks to prove their disdain for the Constitution they are sworn to uphold.
Pundits that support the Left want to equate Fast and Furious to an earlier operation, Operation Gun Walker, conducted by the Bush Administration. Where the two differ is the Bush Administration actually sought to track the guns going abroad while the Obama Administration just allowed guns to go abroad with no intent of tracking their whereabouts!
There were promises made by Eric Holder that would have resulted in the truth being found out as to the facts of Fast and Furious, Just like many of Holder's promises made lies and continued deceptions were the 'rule' of the day.
Obama went on television and vehemently denied any and all knowledge of anything remotely related to Operation Fast and Furious. Now, by claiming Executive Privilege, Obama is tacitly admitting full and complete knowledge!
My question is, 'Is there one or more Democrats that will stand up for the citizens of America and say to Obama and Holder, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH? The Constitution must be upheld and Holder must go!'
