Midweek Ramblings

Eric Holder is about to be cited for Contempt of Congress related to the “Fast and Furious” DOJ program (started by the Bush Administration). In other words, Mr. Holder is about to join the rest of us in our contempt for Congress.

 

Roger Clemens was found not guilty in another DOJ travesty. The cost of trial was estimated at $18 million – to prosecute a man accused of lying to Congress. Really? Lying to Congress about steroid use? Not one cent has been spent to prosecute men lying to Congress about issues that really matter: Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, etc for lying to us about Iraq; Wall St. thieves who stole pensions and nearly caused another Depression; Supreme Court justices who said they respected precedent…

 

Speaking of DOJ travesties, John Edwards was also the victim of another very expensive DOJ political prosecution. Already convicted in the court of public opinion, a Bush appointee decided to go ahead by charging him with a crime that doesn’t exist, while tens of thousands of white collar crimes go unprosecuted. Could it be that the DOJ has finally given up any pretense to “equal justice under the law” and simply become a vehicle for political prosecutions?

 

Anyone wondering what would happen if the Taliban were to take over the United States, need not look any farther than Michigan. Democratically-elected officials thrown out of office by a Governor’s order, legislation being written by religious groups to codify religious beliefs, women being ordered to silence by government officials, priests instructing people a mass on how to vote and who to vote for… those are just a few examples of what happens when “Christian Taliban” are allowed to power.

 

 There are a new set of video editorials and commercials about to be released, and I am excited about them. They feature real people in the Detroit area. I really get a lot of strength and inspiration from the people of Detroit, especially those on the margins (which I guess you could argue is just about all of us). To me, their faces, especially their eyes tell the story. Let me know what you think after you have seen them.

    Mr. Feiger,
    Thank you, I wish you posted more about how our government is taking away our freedoms. Wish you would run for congress or senate. I would be the first in line to help your campaign

    When one person does it, it’s lying. When a group of people do it, it’s politics. Just like if one person mutilates their daughter’s genitals, it’s abuse. If a group of people do it, it’s their culture. We tend to minimize things when entire groups of people do it, no matter how horrendous the thing is (unless, of course, it’s a direct attack on us).

    So happy to find this site. I really just wanted to thank you for the ad I just saw on TV about President Obama’s birth certificate. You are so correct. It is just like the term “driving while black” in this case “being President while black”. This president has been so disrespected it is unbelieveable. Is this 2012 or 1912? We should be so far beyond this. Regarding the contempt charge against Holder…just another Republican attempt to divert attention from the voter fraud investigations he has been digging into.

  4. Stu Mayers says:

    Mr feiger, you should really get your facts straight about fast and furious before you make yourself look ignorant.
    Bush’s “operation wide reciever” was conducted with the knowledge and cooperation of the Mexican government and was shut down in 2007.

    Operation Wide Receiver began in 2005 and it involved 400 guns. Every weapon had RFID trackers installed on them and they were continually tracked. Once the smugglers found out they were being tracked, they located the RFID trackers and ripped them out. The program was immediately shut down as a result in October 2007.

    Fast and Furious started 10 months after obama took office.
    Out of 2500 guns there were two that contained trackers, one of which was homemade. They also had 40 hour battery lives on them, so there was no way they could seriously think they could track these weapons.
    Unlike operation Wide Receiver, the Mexican government was not even made aware that the program even existed.
    Not once were any of the “bad guys” arrested, nor was there efforts put forth to do so and the program came to an end because of the death of at least 200 Mexican civilians and two American federal agents, border patrol agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata.

    This administration’s hatred of the 2nd amendment is what drove them to this idiotic plan. As soon as the scheme was discovered (leaked by the DOJ?) the blame wasn’t directed at the Bush Wide Reciever program but on the 2nd amendment allowing American citizens easy access to guns which is odd because there are strict laws against private citizens owning automatic weapons.

  5. Stu Mayers says:

    Steroids in baseball IS a ridiculous thing for congress to persue but it was a democrat controlled congress who held the hearings. It was Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Calif.), ranking Democrat on the House Government Reform Committee who authorized the hearings in 2005.

    Remember clinton getting involved in the baseball player’s strike saying “If the players and owners are unable to find common ground and find it soon, then we will have to find some way to empower those who are the most important element in the baseball equation, the fans themselves.”

    Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) had called for Congressional hearings to investigate the possibility of enacting a federal law against bounty systems in professional sports but wisely withdrew his idiotic idea.

    Why didn’t the DOJ step in and say Edwards shouldn’t be prosecuted like they did with the New Black Panthers?

    Speaking of terrorists in the government. We should be more worried about a president who willingly sends hundreds of millions to Hamas and supported the ousting of the Egyption government even though the least informed person could see the Muslim Brotherhood would end up in control.

  6. Stu Mayers says:

    It’s really funny to see liberals whine when one of theirs is caught. Your biggest complaint is the cost. Remember the liberals going wild about the cost of Ken Starr’s investigation? How the libs wailed about that when they ignored the fact that clinton could have stopped the investigation by simply doing what holder could do… tell the truth instead of trying to cover up their involvement.

    Nixon was crucified for trying to cover up a botched up B&E, nobody was killed.
    obama/holder are covering up an operation that killed hundreds of civilians and a Border Patrol Agent and an ICE Agent.
    Somehow the democrats get a pass.

  7. Stephen says:

    Mr. Mayers is technically correct, Fast and Furious was an Obama DOJ program. However government sponsored gun running to narcos started with Reagan. I think Fieger’s point was that most Americans are in contempt of Congress for a multitude of reasons, including the politicing around the Holder citation. Interesting point though about Obama’s hatred of the 2nd Ammendment causing him to give guns to virtually anyone who will take them, though the logic escapes me. Thank God he doesn’t love the 2nd Ammendment… otherwise the right to bear arms would include thermonuclear devices. After all, if the government has them, we should too.

  8. Timolin says:

    I love you for you courage and Integrity to speak the truth!!!

  9. Stu I agree with you 100%! I am starting to wonder if this blog is an arm of the DNC propaganda machine?!

    Blog after blog, month after month, year after year and it’s the same thing. The Anti-Republican rhetoric and misinformation runs ramped!

    Now we have Melodie in here tossing in the race card for good measure! What does Holder’s or Obama’s race have to do with the facts? NOTHING! There is this thing called professionalism and its color blind! Then of course there is this other thing called a “cop-out” which seems to fit well when it comes to people looking for excuses for not being a professional.

    Maybe my Comment got lost. but What I said was, that The Eric Holder Lynching or Contempt Charge is just another Distraction by the Republicans. And it goes with Your New Ad about President Obama being a Black Man in the White House. About Two Months ago I Wrote a Blog Saying about the Same Thing.
    And when You have about Five Minutes to Spare, Please go to My Blog Page at: http://www.psatterwhite.blogspot.com The Blog is Called: “Just Say It!”, We as a People Need to Wake up! I am Black and the Pastor of a Small A.M.E. Church in the Diverse City of Dearborn, Michigan. I have been Working in the Community since the age of 11. And I love Working with a Diverse Group of People. Your Ad was Sad and Hurtful, but Unfortunately it was The Truth! So, Let’s Come Together and Pray…Pray, Fight and Vote! Thank You. And “Be Blessed”-Pastor D

    I am soooo disgusted by liberals and the ad that was just put out this am about “the race card” again by you Geoffrey Fieger…..get your facts straight!!!! I voted for Obama back in ’08 and now I regret it….not because he is black (actually he is half) but because I thought he would be a good president. I don’t like his policies and what he stands for….sorry but he is turning this great country into a socialist/marxist agenda!!

  12. Stephen Fletcher says:

    Mr. Fieger,

    I also would like to add my thanks for your latest commercial about the racism that has surfaced since the election of President Obama. I have been appalled to see the volume of emails, comments in blogs, and especially to hear the comments of a number of my neighbors regarding the same ridiculous accusations that you mentioned in your fine speech.

    I too am white (age 65), and I had believed that I would live to see the day when racism and prejudice was a thing of the past in our country. So it is very discouraging to me to witness all of this. I truly believed that the election of this fine man was a breath of fresh air for this country and the start of a new direction, especially after such obvious dishonesty that was displayed by the Bush administration. It is hard to believe that almost half of the people in our country believe otherwise. It scares me.

    It is, however, very reassuring to hear someone with your stature say what you did here publicly, and it was a very important thing for you to do.

    Thank you once again.

  13. Karen Robinson says:

    Mr. Fieger is brave, boisterous and brilliant. He’s not afraid to speak the whole truth and nothing but the truth, and he’s so intelligent to have accomplished all that he has built for himself and the community. Please, please run for governor of Michigan.

  14. InYourFaceNewYorker says:

    No, this is not from The Onion.

  15. Rebecca Carney says:

    I am a US citizen living in Central Mexico. I receive television through a Canadian cable and as a result my “local” tv station comes out of Detroit. As a result, I have seen your recent ad re. the birth of Obama, etc. Thank you and congratulations for having the courage to call it what it is. One of the reasons I chose to retire down here is to get away from the kind of prejudice and ignorance so many people in the States not only embrace, but feel compelled to regale you with at every opportunity. If we could harness all that hate and fear and focus it on something positive the world would be a much better place.

  16. Mr. Fieger,

    I am curious what you think others see in your face and eyes?

    I could tell you, but that would just take all the fun out of it.

    I guess what Obama said is true, “You didn’t build that law firm”, the Government made it possible! So why not kick back some pro-Democrat advertisements? Is that the way of it Mr. Fieger?
