Pelosi on Holder.....is she nuts?

WASHINGTON — The top House Democrat says a committee vote holding the attorney general in contempt of Congress is part of Republican efforts to suppress votes in the upcoming elections.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters Thursday that the vote on Attorney General Eric Holder was an abuse of power by Republicans. She says it is no coincidence that Holder is the official in charge of preventing voter suppression and enforcing civil rights laws.

The California Democrat says Republicans are allied with big-spending special interests in what she called a "nationwide scheme" to suppress the vote.  (Z:  REALLY?  Demanding legal voting is REPRESSION?)

The GOP-run House Oversight Committee voted Wednesday to hold the attorney general in contempt for failing to supply documents related to the mishandled "Fast and Furious" gun-running investigation. *** end of article



Z: The Republicans are going to have to work HARD to remind American voters that it's not REPRESSING the vote we want but TOTALLY LEGAL VOTING.  We aren't the party who believes some Americans find it just too difficult to register ahead of time or are too dumb to get to the right precinct on voting day all by themselves like they did for the last 200 years.    Case in point:

A good friend worked for 30 years in a doctor's office in "The Crenshaw District," of Los Angeles, an almost all-Black, middle class neighborhood.   Every election day, the doc she worked with, to make conversation, would ask particularly the elderly Black men and women "So, did you VOTE today?"  And, countless times, they would say "I didn't have to go in.  Every election, young people come to my house and help me get an absentee ballot, and then they come back when it's arrived and help me fill it out and they send it in for me."   And, countless times, my friend and her boss did nothing.   They were upset, but what can one do?   No names, just story after story of illegal voting...in the guise of 'helping'.  Now, you could say "My gosh, Z!  Don't you WANT them to vote?"   which is a microcosm of the macrocosmic problem we have, isn't it.
Answer:  I do NOT want anyone but the voter to make his or her choice.  

What ugliness has crept into our political atmosphere that would allow Pelosi to stoop so low as to make those accusations in the CBS article above?  What I think she's saying is "Look, we need every vote we can get for the Democrats no matter WHERE we get them...dead, illegal, felons, from other states, non registered...and we need Holder to make sure we protect our scam"    Isn't she?

Holder is the official in charge of preventing voter suppression and enforcing civil rights laws.

And he does this by suing states like Arizona. He is a good fit for corrupt Chicago politics.

As a woman,and as black people should be as well,mad that we have this potential of voter fraud after all the history of suffrage and civil rights to make it possible for us to vote. We should have voter integrity to assure our citizens of how we fought for the right to vote and now we are supposed to just allow any old body to vote? What was the point then?

Yup, more hearsay.

Pelousy is not only "nuts," Z, she's criminally insane.

But, haven't we known that ever since our arms were pinned back by the Demothugs, our hands cuffed and our feet tied together, while Dominatrix Pelousy forced a big, sharp-edged steel funnel down each of our throats after first smashing through our furiously clenched teeth, and then poured copious amounts OBAMASTER's evil smelling, vile tasting, venomous SNAKE OIL into our struggling, gagging, retching bodies?

Don't you remember how she produced her characteristic Death's Head grin all the while she was administering poison into our systems?

Pelousy is not only criminally insane, she's a SADISTIC MONSTER who ought to be BURNED at the STAKE.

Ducky, it ain't hearsay. I saw the clip. She's a freaking liberal automaton. give up, you lose----again.

P.S. I'm not one of the 'ladies who lunch'. I cook.

Off topic....

Z,
Just stopping by to thank you for all your prayers today.

I'm too tired to blog tonight. We were gone for nearly 11 hours straight in today's medical marathon.

I'd be asleep right now -- except that I have to stay up to give Mr. AOW another round or two of eye drops.

Pelosi. Proof positive that Napoleon was right when he said, "In politics, stupidity is not a handicap."

Cough...you mean all two of them who were outside the polling place which Bush investigated and found no cause to indite? Nice try.

Z said...

Elbro...come ON..big black men in paramilitary clothes carrying night sticks from the New Black Panthers and refusing to talk to people outside a precinct aren't intimidating! :-)
By the way, where did all those interviews go where people said they were definitely trying to intimidate?
All the folks there did report they were saying calling the voters "white devil" and "you're about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

Lisa...Imagine suing AZ for wanting to enforce the laws?
I'll never forget all the videos we had during the Primary 2008 Hillary/Barack choice....Houston reported tons of fraud and even Gloria (Hillary fan) Allred is on video saying there was fraud on the part of Obama's campaign. Not sure if that video exists anymore. Then there's the liberal Democrat who made a documentary about Obama's fraud. awful.

Ducky, you're getting a little bit hackneyed with that :-)

Ticker, ya think?!!

How's....that's how they get votes, right.

L&0...great quote. And she does prove it.

AOW, I am SO glad all went well and hope you can rest well tonight.

Liberalman..."white devil" and "you're about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."....
Just two things the two said to voters. Please check wikipedia...it was originally dropped and then picked up in Bush's DoJ two weeks before he left office. thanks.

Fredd said...

The only active support of voter suppression is on Eric Holder's part: he dropped the case against those billy club wielding Black Panthers outside that Philly voting box, threatening white people.

He's all for suppressing white voters. 100%.

Z said...

Fredd, check out the comments...we're dealing with that ... you're so right.

What ugliness has crept into our political atmosphere

I'm sick of it. Sick of it. I barely listen to news anymore.

Makes me even more anti-state when I see the demagogs, morons and other thieves we have on both side of the aisle. A few are good. But just a few. Even the ones we thought would be great changed their tune once in Washington.

I'm glad I have my principles and ideas. But I'm tired of not truly represented.

FairWitness said...

Yes, Z, that is EXACTLY what Nancy Pelosi is saying. They want Eric Holder free and unfettered in order to STOP any election officials who dare to see to it the vote is fair and only lawful voters vote. Democrats want to continue to CHEAT! I would love to smack that woman right across her smug mouth!

Anonymous said...

The examples of Chicago thuggery are rampant. I think they ought to make Nancy P. a dis-honorable Chicagoite.

Sorry, Ducky, I saw the clip of her gibberish. If her hands were tied she couldn't say a word. By the way, I don't 'lunch', I cook. And when I cook I don't wear pearls, only diamonds.

By the way, it was Ferret-face Holder who dropped the case against the Panther thugs. I put nothing past this Chicago bunch come election time.

Z said...

FW, me, too. Very hard to know that Americans buy into this stuff, isn't it.

FrogBurger, I have been watching less and less, too. It's very hard to see what's happening.

Mr. Z used to say "look at Italy...they've had 50 governments since WWII and one doesn't see the division there that we have in America!" He's right...there's a very ugly division and I suppose it's over the soul of this country.

The soul doesn't WANT to give up its freedoms and what men fought for so many times...it doesn't want to slide into socialism and not rewarding good work, and such immorality seemingly sanctioned by far leftwingers, and kids who can't read and write just so they're indoctrinated....it's so awful these days.

The ugliness is Pelosi.
It's an ugliness of the soul.

It's an ugliness of the soul.

Politicians have to be ugly to do their job. They have to distort the truth.

The soul is the the truth.

That's why they must not run our lives, whatever their party may be.

Z, when I see the idiot talking heads on TV like Chris Matthews, I am desperate.

It's one thing to have TV hosts on the left. France has plenty and I didn't mind them too much b.c they were not drunkards at least.

But here in America, we have uneducated people who think they are educated and they have some intellectual authority. It also applies to some hosts on Fox who oversimplify things (Hannity) but at least they don't seem drunk and they don't ramble like crazy people.

I understand it's a game and the goal is ratings and advertising revenue. I'll take that over some gov-controlled TV and censorship. But it still is a sad picture.

"11 hours straight in today's medical marathon."


Boy do I KNOW what that's like...after my Marathon Day..I'm putting my Mother into the earth tomorrow.

What's that saying?

Z said...

Ed, I do think it's an ugliness of the soul...and the soul of our country is at grave risk.

FrogBurger, I have a very, very dear friend who works for a well known TV/FILM company...we had dinner tonight and she was telling me how much people get pushed under the bus ....she is in a very high position but dependent on those a bit higher and she can't even tell them when she's very ill, for example..it's SO dog eat dog that everything is suspect...

I couldn't help thinking of our government and the whole country in general...it's all about keeping one's job even to the detriment of others, etc....the world's a very scary place these days.

No, the left might like it, but I don't want someone running MY LIFE, making MY choices for me...well said, FB, thanks.

Imp...I"m SO SORRY about your loss....right on the heels of your sister's loss. My heart aches for you.xxx

Impertinent said...

Thanks Z...just a bit bummed right now and trying to get my head on straight.

Imp..I just saw your comment.

There are no words to make you feel better, but I'm very sorry for your loss.

Your understanding of Pelosi is bang on, Freethink, but don't you think your language is a bit too colorful? I mean nobody else talks the way you do, do they?

That doesn't stop you from being right, tho'

"What ugliness has crept into our political atmosphere that would allow Pelosi to stoop..." Just goes to show--she's as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside!

If that Bitch lost a brain cell, the other one would die of loneliness. All I can think is that there are a lot of complete idiots in the district where she lives. How could anyone keep voting her back into office?

Ticker said...

Libturd, your ignorance is showing. The investigation or what passed for an investigation was done under OBama and with HOLDER and his Dept of Unjustice ignoring the situation.


Nothing done by such groups will be prosecuted as per former Justice Dept official.

July 6, 2010, former DOJ official J. Christian Adams testified before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights that attorneys in the civil rights division were instructed to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims. Adams said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases, including the New Black Panther voter intimidation case. Adams said that some people in the DOJ “argued that the law should not be used against black wrongdoers because of the long history of slavery and segregation.

Now dumbass, you were saying?
