Here is Attorney General Eric Holder reacting to being reprimanded for not submitting to Congressional oversight.
The Attorney General is the Nations top Law Enforcement Officer. In that position no one could be worse than Eric Holder. His job is to not just enforce the Laws of the United States, but to set an example of how Law Enforcement should be conducted by all Police Forces in the Nation.
He has been charged with contempt here is what he said at the race baiter Al Sharptons event regarding that exchange.
No Eric what AG has ever been charged with Contempt, and then after being charged not only still refused to comply, but would have the gall to say the charges are not due to his own criminal actions, but due to the fact that you are black.
You sold guns to Drug Cartels to create death and violence to pursue your agenda against the Constitutional right to bear arms. In the process hundreds of people died. Including two American Law Enforcement Officers. The only thing it had to do with the Gun Lobby was your attempt to cast them in a bad view through a criminal act. You didn’t play politics, you setup the murder of innocent people to pursue YOUR politics.
You are a criminal and racist. You could even be considered a terrorist, because you caused the death of hundreds to gain you leverage in a political debate. You are a disgrace not just to every Cop, but to the very Constitution and Laws you took an Oath to preserve. You should be in Jail. Not in the Office as the highest Law Enforcement Officer of the Nation.

Oh my. Say it ain’t true?
One of Sinn Fein’s most senior leadership figures began importing guns to Northern Ireland after the IRA ceasefires and allegedly boasted that one of the weapons was used to murder two policemen, a BBC investigation has revealed. Sean ‘Spike’ Murray, at one time a key figure in the IRA, is now so trusted by the Sinn Fein leadership that just months ago he was one of the party’s negotiators in the Haass talks which considered ‘dealing with the past’.
Yet a Florida gunrunner last night revealed extraordinary detail about how in 1995 Murray allegedly asked him to start sending weapons to the IRA; a process which only ended in 1999 after accomplices were caught and after about 400 guns had been sent to the Province.
So, to recap, a TRUSTED Sinn Fein “negotiator” on “dealing with the past” allegedly imported weapons AFTER the ceasefire and boasted how they were used to murder two Police officers in my local town, Lurgan. Another pesky detail? Securicrat dirty tricks? Meanwhile…here’s Marty….and look how cuddly and nice he is. Try and forget about RUC officers shot in the back care of HIS IRA. Repeat after me …peace, perfect peace.

David Cameron’s clumsy and indeed quite disgraceful defence of sickening trougher Minister Maria Miller has impacted on the body politic!
David Cameron was dealt a bitter new blow today by an exclusive poll revealing that support for Ukip hit record levels during the Maria Miller expenses scandal.
As the Prime Minister officially launched the Conservatives’ European elections campaign, Ipsos MORI disclosed that backing for Nigel Farage’s anti-EU party has surged to 15 per cent — its joint highest rating yet.
Polling was carried out from Saturday to Monday while Mr Cameron was loyally defending his then Culture Secretary. The results will be seen by many Tories as confirmation Ukip was helped by the scandal. The survey also shed possible new light on why Chancellor George Osborne reportedly intervened to force yesterday’s resignation by Mrs Miller.
It found that he delivered the most popular Tory Budget for a generation and now enjoys the highest satisfaction rating of any Tory Chancellor since 1980 — but these personal triumphs are not being translated into higher Conservative popularity.
Instead, the Tories are down a point since March to 31 per cent — six points behind Labour, who are up two points to 37 per cent.
The problem for Cameron is that he consistently misreads the gut feel of the conservative grass roots and thinks he can push his metrosexual liberal agenda at any price. If things stay like this, the price paid will be LABOUR back in power in 2015.

Global warming? That’s also the fault of Israel. And so is Manchester United’s poor form this season. Add to the list as you wish!

Now then, this comes a little surprise!
The number of immigrants to Britain in the last decade is 350,000 higher than the public has been told, experts admitted today. The Office for National Statistics admitted it had dramatically underestimated net migration to the UK by more than the entire population of the city of Cardiff. A ‘substantial’ number of people arriving in Britain from eight countries including Poland was missed, because researchers collected data from the wrong airports.
350,000 more than was thought. The equivalent of a city the size of Cardiff. Overlooked. How on EARTH can we place any lasting confidence in officialdom when it is SO far out? Maybe the 350,000 is also an underestimate?

It is touching to see how wisely the State uses YOUR taxes. Just consider this if you will…
Female prisoners in Northern Ireland are being trained in beauty therapy, it has been revealed. The intention is to prepare inmates for employment upon release, Prison Service director-general Sue McAllister said.
How sweet and what a clever use of money. I can see little prospect of anything going wrong with this wheeze, can you? Pass the mascara…

All those sacrifices from our Armed Forces….was it worth it?
Now the Iraqi government is poised to legalize child marriage for the nation’s majority Shiite Muslim population. But the law, which some expect to pass before this month’s parliamentary elections, would do significantly more than that. Called the Jaafari Personal Status Law, it would prohibit Muslim men from marrying non-Muslims, prevent women from leaving the house without their husband’s consent, automatically grant custody of children older than two to their father in divorce cases and legalize marital rape.
Makes you feel all warm inside, right? We should have just nuked the place.

I’d really hate to not know where anything is.
Maybe it’s that I’ve always been fascinated by maps. Give me an Ordnance Survey map (one of Britain’s great glories, in my opinion) and I could pour over it all day long, tracing the lines and features like braille. Maybe it’s that I ran and cycled free all over Epping Forest as soon as I could get out the door. Maybe it’s that I learned bushcraft and how to read maps in the cubs and scouts. Maybe it’s finding my way across terrain in the Army Cadet Force and TA and knowing how to find south with an analogue watch.
What it adds up to is that I’ve always thought I’m pretty spacially and geographically aware. I know where all the countries of the world are, as well the regions, states, provinces and lande in many of them. I know that flying from New York to LA takes you west. From Dublin to Belfast is north. I know also that the local pub (very important, this one), is west of home. I always know which direction I’m travelling in and whether I’m on the east or west side of the road. Often I’ll refer to maps, google earth or some such thing when news breaks. I need to know where things are happening and their relation to other places.
A girlfriend once asked me the quickest way to Selfridges from her work. I told her to get off at Bond Street tube station and walk west along Oxford Street. She looked at as if my head had just turned green. To me that was the natural way to describe it. I couldn’t think of another way of describing it. That to me is giving directions. So I’m quite amused (read ‘depressed’) to see that a survey of 2066 Americans reveals that just one in six Americans can find Ukraine on a map. More than that, the worse they were at finding it, the more they wanted the US military to get involved.

Some time back, British Health officials were warning of the approaching ‘Flu’ Pandemic as though it was a guaranteed certainty that a repeat of the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak, which itself was a true pandemic, was about to hit Great Britain, and decimate the population. I wrote a couple of posts myself, one perhaps a touch more sarcastic than the other, as I, along with about 99.999% of the British population, was convinced that these officials knew even less than anyone else about the risks from the various strains of Bird flu, or Swine flu, or any other variation; but were talking up the advantages of being inoculated with their ever-so expensive Tamiflu drugs which they had chosen without very many trials, or viewed research, or proven statistically-correct and published trials, to back up their doom-laden words.
So it is not too surprising that the Cochrane Collaboration, a group of independent scientists backed, by the British Medical Journal, have, after years of fighting to gain access to ALL the trial data managed and generated by GlaxoSmithKline and Roche, the pharmaceutical giants, finally published their findings after scrutinising the data files. They have discovered that Tamiflu shortened a bout of Flu by about half-a-day from seven days to 6.3 days, which is, when the cost of the stored Tamiflu, noted to be some £424 millions, bought in a panic by the British Government when the advisors went shrieking around that the ‘sky was indeed about to fall’, was interpreted by those Cochrane scientists as a sheer waste of money.
But will any government scientist, or indeed politician, accept responsibility for this financial debacle? You must think I am joking! The graveyards themselves will open up before any of that bunch will even admit that the sun rises in the east, never mind accepting responsibility for the sheer waste of spending half-a-billion pounds on gear which not only didn’t work, the side-effects were down-right dangerous!

It’s one of those weeks at the coalface of capitalism. I have no interest in Oscar Pistorius, but all I’ve learned from the news on the wireless this week is that he cannot stop snivelling. Seems like not much else is going on. Well, nothing they’re telling us about anyway. Have yourselves an open thread then, one decorated by a randomly chosen image. Be nice out there.
