Don’t Celebrate Eric Holder’s Pending Departure

February 12th, 2014 - 4:55 am

Radicals overseeing the prosecution of Gitmo terrorists will still tell line lawyers that the most important criteria in their work is how history and European nations view them.

The Civil Rights Division will still sue schools to allow boys to dress in drag.

New and creative ways to allow illegal aliens to remain in the country will be forwarded to front-line officers.

I could go on and on. The point is that nothing is going to change.

People who think Holder’s departure will mark a moment of sanity don’t understand the radical ideological virus that has raced through the DOJ bureaucracy. Holder’s thousands of underlings are on autopilot. They don’t need orders. There are hundreds of political overseers who will hold the radical course.

Pam Karlan, the deputy assistant attorney general overseeing American elections, will still be an unrepentant liar, yet praised by all her fellow travelers.

United States attorneys will still instruct assistant United States attorneys to disregard sentencing standards and various federal laws when charging drug defendants.

It will all continue.

Worse, Obama could appoint an acting attorney general under the Vacancies Reform Act that need not obtain Senate confirmation. Just imagine that circus – an unconfirmed attorney general for a year, unaccountable to anyone except the West Wing.

So keep the champagne corked. Don’t toast Holder’s pending departure. As the Who sang, “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.”

And, think, this situation will go on for years even with conservative presidents and congresses because we're dealing with 'unionized' civil servants who will stay radicalized regardless of who's in office.

Mr. Adams, how much of the workforce at the DoJ is protected from removal from their positions by a new administration? Should such a political correction occur in November 2016, is it even legally possible to sweep away the radicals currently embedded there? I know that over here at State we're tenured after 3-5 years, and essentially become part of the furniture, for better or worse. If PJM readers could see the politically correct and leftist cable writing at State, and dhimmi mindset of the entrenched brass, they would despair. Does the DoJ operate under the same system, or could a new, constitutionally-minded president truly change the status quo there.

Thank you for your articles. Writing by someone knowledgable and from the inside is very welcome, and is one of the reasons I look for your articles when I come to PJM.

Well, under the precedents established by Obama, a Republican president could suspend civil service.

Well of course the Republicans won't do anything. Like the majority of whites they are terrified of being called racist. Opposing anti-white policies and especially anti-white individuals like Eric "My people" Holder would be guaranteed to be called racist. Until the majority of whites or a majority of white Republicans are willing to stand up to such attacks and even support America's identity as a white country, then they will continue to slide into oblivion, especially now that the GOP didn't fight against the abolition of the fillibuster. But hey, as long as the fat cat leadership of the GOP gets their secret bank accounts and runs away to their hardened and fortified rich white enclaves a la South Africa, its all good. Right?

Could it be that Holder is going to continue screwing up the country until the November elections, and then leave office before Congressional oversight committees with new Republican leadership mount serious investigations of his unconstitutional actions? Sort of like Hilarious Clinton without the large posterior!

Always assume the worst case, and you will never be disappointed :)

I have a suspicion who it will be, but it is too horrifying to mention, in case it gives them some ideas :(

Why does it seem that Obamas minions come in do their job of destruction and then get to leave clean as a whistle with more money in their pocket?

I suspect they are doing this 1) to get Holder out of the picture before Harry Reid has to pass the gavel and, 2)To get Holders replacement confirmed by a Democrat Senate.

You could be right, Mr. Adams. However, there is nothing that says the Senate Confirmation Committee has to permit the appointment to hit the floor of the Senate. Considering the end of the filibuster on cabinet appointees, that is the only leverage an appointee's opposition has left. I hope they use it - repeatedly - and never, ever recess Congress between now and the next session in 2015.

What is the "Senate Confirmation Committee"? Do you mean the Senate Judiciary Committee chaired by P. Leahy? If so, you can be sure the nomination will get to the Senate floor. No Senator can hold up a nomination there but for a single week. That's seven days of "leverage."
