Sarah Palin Calls for the Firing of the Employee Who Should’ve Never Been Hired

By Gary P Jackson

That Eric Holder is the Attorney General of the United States is all the proof you need that Republicans, especially those in the Senate, don’t give a damn about keeping America and her people safe and free from evil.

More on this in a minute.

Everyone wants Holder’s head on a stick now but we should have never been put in this position in the first place.

Remember, this ain’t Holder’s first rodeo. Holder played a significant role in the Clinton Justice Department.

Back in 2000 the big story was Clinton and his minions sending young Elian Gonzalez back to Cuba, by force, after his mother gave her life to free him from the communist regime.

Humberto Fontova wrote on Breitbart’s Big Peace website: [emphasis mine]

The New Black Panther Party threatened Philadelphia voters with billy clubs and Eric Holder’s justice department couldn’t be bothered. CAIR was accused of fundraising for Hamas, and Eric Holder shrugged.

But back when Fidel Castro demanded the return of an escaped slave, Eric Holder snapped to attention, clicked his heels, and sprung to action. Scrupulous legality, we’re given to understand by Mr. Holder, prevents his Department from prosecutions against the New Black Panthers and CAIR.

[ …. ]

Thanks to the ritual MSM-Castroite collusion most people forget (or missed) the crucial legal and ethical details of this circus/tragedy — which were mostly established during the first week after Elian’s rescue at sea, after his heroic mother’s drowning. The “son-belongs-with-his-father” crowd, for instance, “missed” (with the help of the MSM-Democratic complex) that Elian’s father was initially delighted that his motherless son was in the U.S. and in the loving arms of his uncles and cousins.

The evidence — frantically buried by the MSM-Democratic complex — was overwhelming. Mauricio Vincent, a reporter for Madrid newspaper El Pais, wrote that during that first week he’d visited Elian’s home town of Cardenas and talked with Elian’s father, Juan Miguel, along with other family members and friends. All confirmed that Juan Miguel had always longed for his son Elian to flee to the United States. Shortly after Elian’s rescue, his father had even applied for a U.S. visa!

Elian’s Miami uncle, Lazaro, explained it repeatedly and best: “I always said I would turn over Elian to his father, when Juan Miguel would come here and claim him. But I (along with practically everyone with experience under communism from Cambodians to Hungarians and from Lithuanians to Cubans) knew such a thing was impossible. He couldn’t do that. I knew it wasn’t Juan Miguel requesting Elian–it was Fidel.

The legal-weasels forgot (or missed) that on Dec, 1st 1999 the INS asserted that Miami-based uncle Lazaro was indeed Elian’s legal custodian and Florida’s family court indeed the place to arbitrate further issues.

The armed thugs Eric Holder sent to snatch up young innocent Elian, and return him to communist hell!

Holder was also behind the successful efforts to pardon Puerto Rican FALN terrorists. Murdering terrorists.

From Michelle Malkin:

The 16 members of the FALN (the Spanish acronym for Armed Forces of National Liberation) and Los Macheteros had been convicted in Chicago and Hartford variously of bank robbery, possession of explosives and participating in a seditious conspiracy. Overall, the two groups had been linked by the FBI to more than 130 bombings, several armed robberies, six slayings and hundreds of injuries.

I agree with what Michelle wrote at the time: “Bill Ayers approves!

The aftermath of one of the Eric Holder approved FALN attacks.

Think about this, Eric Holder was behind the pardon of terrorists who tried to overthrow the government. That alone makes him just as evil as they are. To quote Professor AyersGuilty as hell, free as a bird!

Since being part of the Obama regime, Holder has been able to support terrorists and attempt to destroy America to his heart’s desire. We all know about the dismissal of the convictions against the domestic terrorist New Black Panthers, after members of the violent group were convicted in absentia, after armed members of the group were caught intimidating voters at a polling station.

From J. Christian Adams:

Americans are familiar with the favors that Eric Holder’s Justice Department extended to Jerry Jackson and the New Black Panther Party. The voter intimidation case against Jackson and two other defendants was dismissed and the inside story is the subject of two chapters of my book Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department. What most people don’t know is that Eric Holder’s DOJ appears to be extending special favors to New Black Panther Jerry Jackson still – namely keeping him out of jail for violating federal firearms laws.

Jackson has a long violent criminal history. He is also a Democratic Party elected official in Philadelphia, not that those two facts have anything in common, of course. He was elected in May 2010 to a seat on the Philadelphia Democratic City Committee in the 14th Ward. No word if he will be in Charlotte for the 2012 DNC convention.

It is illegal under federal law (18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(1)) for any felon to possess a firearm. As one federal prosecutor told me, “these cases are among the simplest to win. It’s like taking candy from a baby. Did a felon hold a gun, or not? Period.” It matters not if the gun was loaded, or even works.

Did New Black Panther Jerry Jackson possess a firearm? Behold:

Holder is currently under fire for his part in the Obama regime’s biggest scandal to date. The Gunwalker AKA Fast and Furious operation was an effort to put weapons in the arms of Mexican drug cartels and violent terrorist gangs. At least one U.S. border agent has been slaughtered because of this.

In early 2009 Obama, his minions, and their media partners started spreading the story that many of the guns used in violent attacks south of the border were from the United States. This was the latest attempt, in a long line of them, by the democrat party to enact sweeping gun control laws that would violate all Americans’ right to bear arms, as guaranteed by the Constitution.

Tyrants know they must they must disarm the people if they are to succeed. It’s a concept as old as the use of weapons itself.

Sarah Palin has joined the call for Holder’s termination: [emphasis mine]

Fire Eric Holder

It’s tempting to get distracted with the horse race aspect of electoral politics during a primary season. But as pundits talk about “who’s up and who’s down” in the 24 hour news cycle, we must keep our eye on the ball with the Obama administration. They rely on distraction to skirt responsibility, but we’re going to hold them accountable for their corruption and incompetence.

When the stories about Operation Fast and Furious first broke, it sounded too crazy even for this administration.

Why would any government official with an ounce of common sense think it’s a good idea to facilitate the smuggling of thousands of guns into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels? That’s what Operation Fast and Furious did.

You might think Eric Holder’s Department of Justice was setting up a sting operation in which our federal agents would swoop down and arrest the bad guys the minute the guns traded hands. But that’s not what happened. Eric Holder’s DOJ had American gun dealers sell weapons to “straw purchasers” tied to drug cartels without actually following the movement of the guns as they were then sold to Mexican drug lords. They apparently thought this so-called “gun-walking” operation would help them chart the path of gun smuggling, but they didn’t have a plan to actually control the weapons’ movements as the guns were allowed to “walk” into Mexico. All Holder’s DOJ did was arm violent criminals. What manner of fools do we have working in this administration? What’s next? Supplying nuclear weapons components to the Iranians so we can track their activities?

Fast and Furious isn’t just your typical government incompetence. This is a deadly tragedy. U.S. border agent Brian Terry was gunned down with weapons connected to Holder’s debacle. At least 200 Mexican citizens were also killed by criminals using Fast and Furious weapons. We can only imagine how many more people will be murdered by criminals our government armed.

When an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives blew the whistle on this operation, the DOJ leaked sensitive information about him to the press. This week, the former U.S. Attorney for Arizona, who was ousted in the wake of the scandal, admitted to being the leaker.

And where is President Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder in all of this? When did he first know about the operation? In his testimony to the House Oversight Committee on May 3, 2011, Holder stated, “I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” But the DOJ’s own documents prove that Holder had been receiving briefings on Fast and Furious for nearly a year before that date. In other words, our government’s top law enforcement official, Eric Holder, lied to the American public. He finally admitted this week to the Senate Judiciary Committee, “In my testimony before the House committee [on May 3], I did say a few weeks. I probably could have said a couple of months. What I said about a few weeks was inaccurate based on what happened.”

When the nation’s highest law enforcement official lies to the American people, he must go.

And if he claims that he didn’t lie, then how else do we explain this situation? He’s either lying or he’s so grossly incompetent and lazy that he didn’t read important life and death briefings from his deputy attorney general and didn’t know about this deadly operation run by people under him. So, which is it? Incompetent, lazy, or lying? No matter which explanation fits, he needs to go.

Holder conceded this week, “I have ultimate responsibility for what happens in the department.” He can prove it by resigning. And if he refuses to resign, then President Obama – with whom the bucks ultimately stop – can prove that he respects honesty, transparency, and accountability in his administration by firing Holder.

I stand with the members of Congress who are calling for Holder’s resignation. I stand with the family members of Brian Terry who are demanding transparency and accountability. Mr. President, where do you stand?

~ Sarah Palin

P.S. It can be argued that some elements of this scandal give the appearance of perhaps being intended to be used to infringe on our Second Amendment rights. I invite our President to correct concerned Americans if they’re wrong on this.

It’s good to see Sarah standing up for the American people, as always, but as I wrote at the beginning,this situation didn’t have to happen at all. There was plenty of evidence that Holder would be, at best, a complete and total disaster as Attorney General, and at worst, a terrorist sympathizer working inside the government to cause the United States great harm.

The jury is still out, because who knows what else Holder has done that hasn’t been uncovered yet. I’m leading more toward the purposely harming the United States verdict myself.

Holder isn’t the only lovely Senate Republicans gave a pass to. I think most Conservatives know the name Cass Sunstein. This is a radical communist that believes government should control absolutely everything, and that citizens have no rights whatsoever. He does believe animals have rights though, and should be given lawyers to make sure those rights are maintained.

Sunstein is a serious Marxist loon. You name the evil initiative: population control, confiscation of weapons, death panels, whatever, Sunstein is for it.

Sunstein believes in regulating all speech, one of our most sacred God given rights.

If you’ve never heard of Sunstein before, go read up and be prepared to be scared out of your mind, as the United States Senate confirmed this man to a cabinet position in the Obama regime, with nary a whimper of protest from the Republicans.

Senate Republicans put on a dog and pony show, but never put in any real effort to vet either of Obama’s radical Supreme Court nominees, the two most radical ever to sit on the bench. Instead these two Marxists were praised by Republicans for their supposed intellect and comportment!

This is the problem with the Republican Senators, and elected Republicans in general. They are too timid and too worried about being liked by the democrats, and their media allies, to do their jobs and protect the nation from danger.

The Constitution is purposely vague when it talks about the president, his duties and his responsibilities. The president is given a lot of latitude to work. With that in mind, there are checks and balances, as the founders intended for the three branches of government to be co-equals, and regulate each other.

One of the ways the legislative branch acts as a check and balance to the president is the “advise and consent” clause in the Constitution. Key presidential appointments require the approval and confirmation of the Senate. This amounts to an investigation and an extended job interview by Senate members. This is supposed to be a serious process.

Sadly, it’s become nothing more than a show, with the results determined long before any public hearings take place.

What’s frustrating to someone who actually cares about the health of our Republic, is the difference between the way a nominee from a democrat president and a Republican president is handled.

If a democrat president nominates anyone, no matter how vile of a past they have, no matter how insane their beliefs are, it’s a done deal. Oh, a few Republican Senators might express “concern” and the Conservatives in Senate might vote against, but it’s basically a rubber stamp deal. Republicans put up little resistance.

Now I don’t know if these Republicans really are that cowardly, or just stupid. But I do know that on many occasions, they have put America in harm’s way by not doing their job!

Oh, the Republicans have successfully rejected some of Obama’s far left judicial nominees, and a potential labor board nominee, but that’s the exception, not the rule. It seems they higher the stakes, the more likely the Republicans will just lay down for the democrat president.

On the other hand, let a Republican president nominate someone, even for a minor position that requires Senate conformation. Man it’s all out war!

The democrats, and their media partners, work over time sliming the candidate and use every parliamentary trick ever devised to slow the process, or even stop it. With more important picks, like the Supreme Court, it’s scorched earth!

Democrats famously denied Judge Robert Bork, one of America’s brilliant legal minds, and someone absolutely qualified for a seat on the highest court. In fact, the smearing of Bork was so effective, being “borked” became part of the American lexicon to describe an effective and successful smear job.

More recently the appointment of Ambassador John Bolton to the United Nations was successfully stopped by democrats, with the help of some Republicans, I might add.

President George W. Bush made Bolton the ambassador through recess appointment, but again with the help of liberal Republicans, Bolton’s nomination was denied after the recess appointment expired.

John Bolton is one of the greatest foreign policy minds of our generation. He’s not only consulted with several of the current presidential candidates, he is no doubt the top pick for either Secretary of State or Secretary of Defense for any Republican winner. And yet, he was defeated.

It’s bad enough that Senate Republicans don’t have a stomach for the fight, but it’s unacceptable they allow an obvious national security threat, a terrorist sympathizer like Eric Holder, to become Attorney General.

Come 2012 we have some tough choices to make. There are a large number of seats up for grabs in the Senate. We must replace every senator that isn’t a true and principled Conservative.

No democrat seat should be safe, and neither should any unprincipled Republican’s. We must elect senators who care about the United States more than their status as a member of the “good old boys club“!

Fast and Furious and all of the damage it caused didn’t have to happen. If Senate Republicans had done their job, Eric Holder would have never been in the position to harm America and aid terrorists.

All of the evidence was there. No one cared enough to stop him.

As I continually remind readers we must look at the actual records of these presidential candidates, and ignore their lofty speeches, the same advice goes out to Senate Republicans. Theirs is a solemn duty. The Senate is charged with protecting the nation from people like Eric Holder.

They failed.

Pete Rouse, Barack Obama’s Dirty Tricks Master

By Gary P Jackson

Pete Rouse, and the part he played in “Troopergate” or as Sarah Palin calls it, “Tazergate” is what first prompted me to start blogging. It was all of the research into Rouse, Obama, and their direct involvement with all of the various crazies in Alaska, that made me realize just exactly what kind of evil America would be facing with the newly elected, and at the time not yet in office, Obama regime.

Pete Rouse is now Barack Obama’s acting White House Chief of Staff, replacing Rahm Emanuel, who is leaving to run for Mayor of Chicago.

If you have been following Sarah Palin on Twitter, you’ll know that she has been most concerned with the fact the media doesn’t seem all too interested in the fact that Rouse, the ultimate D.C. insider, who hasn’t lived in Alaska since Reagan was in office, still votes absentee in the state.

As Stacy Drake points out in this great piece on Rouse, ABC’s Jake Tapper, one of the very few actual journalists in the lamestream media, had questions for the White House about Rouse. Tapper not only asked White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs about Rouse’s voting problems, but about the fact Rouse was part of the efforts to destroy Sarah Palin. As is his usual reaction to any question that requires the truth, Gibbs blew Tapper off, giving no real answer at all.

Read all of Stacy’s great article here.

Let’s learn a bit more about Rouse, the man some call the 101st Senator, through what his fellow travelers say about him.

The notoriously left wing Anchorage Daily News ran this puff piece on Rouse right after the election:

He once helped run state government in Juneau, played shortstop in a local softball league, and he still votes as an Alaska resident.

But these days, Pete Rouse works in the White House, two doors from his close friend, President Barack Obama.

For 25 years as the consummate Democratic insider in the U.S. Senate, Rouse played a quiet role as the backdoor connection for Alaska’s all-Republican delegation to the other side of the aisle in Congress. He was the longtime chief of staff for Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D., the one-time Senate majority leader, and starting in 2004 Rouse took on the same job for a promising young freshman senator from Illinois.

Today, as special adviser to Obama, Rouse is in the innermost circle of the West Wing. His office sits between chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and communications director David Axelrod (for fans of “The West Wing” television series, that would be Josh Lyman’s office).

His Alaska roots run deeper than those of almost anyone reading these words. His mother, the daughter of Japanese immigrants, grew up in Anchorage starting in World War I, when it was a railroad construction town. His cousin was the longtime municipal attorney for the City of Palmer.

But Rouse himself was born on the East Coast and had never been west of Denver when he flew to Alaska in late 1978 to visit a friend, Alaska’s newly elected Republican lieutenant governor, Terry Miller.

Rouse ended up working as Miller’s chief of staff for the final four years of Gov. Jay Hammond’s administration. It was a great experience, Rouse said, a time when Juneau was filled with young idealists eager to grapple with the state’s new oil money, infrastructure need and unformed social policies.

Juneau at the time was 19,000 people, but it was really a town on the move in terms of young, well-educated people excited by these policy issues,” he recalled.

[ … ]

Rouse also brought a team of political veterans, many from the Daschle camp, into the Obama campaign.

When Pete went to work for Barack, what Barack got — and I don’t think he realized it — was the only network in Democratic circles that from both a policy and political perspective came close to the Clinton network,” political consultant Anita Dunn told the Post recently.

By last August, Rouse had shifted to working full-time for the campaign. An Obama campaign trip to Alaska was almost a certainty, he said, until Gov. Sarah Palin was tapped for the Republican vice-presidential nominee. Pre-Palin, he said, the campaign felt it had a chance to win the heavily Republican state, based on the enthusiasm shown in caucuses for Obama.

[ … ]

One of Rouse’s best friends in Alaska is state Sen. Kim Elton, D-Juneau. Rouse was the one who recruited Elton, a former journalist, into politics to work for Miller. Elton said Rouse is always eager for e-mailed photos of Romeo, the black wolf often photographed around Juneau.

Elton said he followed the presidential race through Rouse, backing Obama early on the strength of his friend’s endorsement. But he told Rouse he couldn’t talk about Palin once she was named to the Republican ticket. As chairman of the Legislative Council, Elton played a central role in the Legislature’s “Troopergate” investigation of the governor, which Republicans complained was being run by Obama supporters.

You can read more of the ADN’s love letter to Rouse here.

Besides the syrupy nature of the Anchorage Daily News piece, one thing that stands out in this deal is the close, personal friendship Pete Rouse has with former State Senator Kim Elton. As the article points out, Elton played a key role in the “Troopergate” witch hunt. Of course Elton lies when he says he and Rouse didn’t discuss “Troopergate.” In an earlier piece I wrote: Sarah Palin, Barack Obama, And The Cost Of Fighting Chicago Thug Politics, I had this to say about Rouse, Elton and “Troopergate.”:

Obama’s crew “reached out” to the Alaska State Troopers Union, no doubt using his ties to the incredibly corrupt SEIU/ACORN cabal as his calling card. Once Obama got involved, the slime machine went into overdrive.

A lot has been written, and as we all know, the so-called Branchflower Report, which claimed Sarah had broken no laws, but “overstepped her authority” was completely and totally discredited, by independent investigator, Timothy Petumenos, who was working on behalf of the Alaska State Personnel Board.

Not only did he find that Sarah had done nothing wrong in firing Walt Monegan, an “at will” employee who served at the pleasure of the Governor, and could be fired for any reason, or none at all, he also noted that the Obama smear crew, Elton, French, and the rest, had actually cited the wrong statute in their shameless attacks.

Didn’t matter though. What Obama was looking for was an “October surprise” and he got it, as the bogus Branchflower Report was released just three days before the election. The damage was done.

For a “job well done” Barack Obama appointed Rouse’s buddy Senator Kim Elton to a make work job at the U.S. Department of the Interior. As we now know, this was the first of many such pay-play-deals the Obama regime would attempt. Think Blagojevich, Joe Sestak and Andrew Romanoff just to name a few.

Now our buddy Pete Rouse wasn’t done though. Again, Rouse is connected in Alaska. Good old Pete was charged with creating what we call Obama’s Alaska Mafia. This is a group of hate bloggers, thugs, nerdowells, and Marxist-democrat party operatives.

These hate bloggers were given access to some of the nation’s leading news organizations and told to crank out the lies, half truths, rumors, and hate. Most notably in this bunch are Jeanne Devon and Shannyn Moore, who were given access to the smut peddling Huffington Post, which Obama’s media partners often use as a “credible source.”

We’ve written extensively about the Alaska Mafia, the hatemongers, and all of the dirty tricks, coordinated by Rouse, so I won’t rehash, but if you’d like a good overview, read more here.

Pete Rouse, along with fellow “Alaskan” Anita Dunn, who helped former Alaska Governor Tony Knowles in his failed attempt to defeat Sarah Palin is her run for Governor, will likely play a key roles in the 2012 presidential election when Sarah Palin, the likely Republican nominee faces off with their boss, Barack Obama for the White House.

Americans need to keep an eye on Pete Rouse, Obama’s dirty tricks master, from now until the end of the Obama regime. He’s proven he is capable of almost anything, and his network of Alaskan Marxists, and hate bloggers will be cranking it up to eleven the second Sarah Palin officially announces her campaign.

Speaking of that morally bankrupt bunch of losers, Naked Emperor News put together a great video that ties all of this together. Though Jeanne Devon fought, with some success, to have this thing banned, it’s back on You Tube. This kinda says it all:
