Report: GOP will end Fast and Furious investigation?

“We want to let them know that there is a theological responsibility (emphasis added) to participate in the political process…” said House Congressional Black Caucus chair, Emanuel Cleaver of a meeting with hundreds of black Pastors representing various denominations in the U.S. Speaking to MSNBC, the congressman added “…we’re going to have the IRS administrator there, we’re going to have the Attorney General Eric Holder there, we’re going to have the lawyers’ organization from around the country, the ACLU — all giving Ministers guidance about what they can and cannot do.”

Of course, Cleaver was referring to “guidance” in the ways churches can participate in the 2012 election without violating IRS rules concerning their tax exempt status.  Naturally, this has always been of GREAT concern to black pastors, especially nowadays given the sterling record of unbiased enforcement built by the scrupulously law-abiding Attorney General.


Yet even while absorbed with their tax code responsibilities, the attending Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights found time to address a letter to House Speaker John Boehner concerning the harsh treatment of Attorney General Holder by some of the Speaker’s fellow Republicans.  Consisting of labor unions, homosexual groups, black ministers, the NAACP, and even an Arab anti-discrimination organization, the Conference believes citing Holder with contempt for his disregard of House subpoenas in the Fast and Furious affair is “unwarranted.” In fact, it’s a downright “partisan attempt to discredit the Attorney General,” a heinous example of “accusatory vitriol and malignant suspicion” and a “rush to judgment intended to create a stain on the office of the Attorney General.”

But according to the man who broke the “Gunwalker” story a year and a half ago, threatening letters to Speaker Boehner might no longer be necessary. Sources in Washington, DC have told blogger and citizen reporter Mike Vanderboegh that Republican leaders have already decided to close down the Fast and Furious investigation and halt contempt proceedings against Eric Holder, because “they (the GOP leadership) don’t think that they will suffer for [that] failure to follow through. They’re scared of Holder’s race card. . . they’re scared of Trayvon. They think if they let Issa fail, that it will only be a story in the blogosphere for a day . . . that they can weather it. . . .” Unfortunately, Vanderboegh makes it clear that he trusts the word of these sources “implicitly.”

    Why oh why do we keep electing weak mice instead of strong leaders to represent us?? The race card has been played so much its being abused and used as an excuse to not do their jobs. We need to release these mice and elect real leaders to stand up to this unconstitutional anti American adimisitration, its supporters and its followers. If they are afraid of a civil war over race their behavior is not helping.

      Mark this day of infamy down! The “Re-PUNK-licans”, especially the crybaby, punk^ss Boehner have no right representing the GOP. You have just witnessed the breakdown of the rule of law and the derelection of sworn oaths to defend the constitution by the spineless bastards, and that is putting it mildy! We have just witnessed the complete takeover by the Muslim-Marxist and his communist minions. AMERIKA, you can kiss your ^ss goodye as you have once again been sold out. Like I have been saying, it will take anther 1776 to keep your freedom and that is not exaggerating one iota. It’s time for the states to start manning militias in preparation for the stand against tyranny as our forefathers were required to do. I don’t think the lazy, undisciplined sheeple have it in them to defend there own asses. Let me add, yet another communist federal judge declared the DOMA unconstitutional – how about that! It will never end unless the country realizes what total effort that it will take to save this fast dying Republic. Voting does not have any effect of a free people charting the intended coarse as it was supposed to. The vote is constantly negated by communist judges and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. This regime is at war against it’s peons and it is time to lodge war against them! WAKE UP,WISE UP, RISE UP!

    • Robert Paulson

      Why are most of the Republican Congressmen gutless wonders? What hold does Obama have on them? When we answer these questions we may understand what is happening in Washington.

  • Yvonne

    Boehner must be told to do his job and not give evil a chance in this corrupt situation. His letting it slide is disgusting and disappointing.

  • Doodelen

    If the situation was reversed the Democrats would be following this cause to the ends of the earth! I just ripped up my Republican membership card! Outrageous does not begin to describe my disgust!!!

    • Peter

      This doesn’t make any sense asthe American people want Holder made accountable for what he has done,what he has said in the name of Racism,division,corruption and his “in your face” refusal to comply with the Congress.

      I say that if the Republicans fail to see this through,if they fail to uphold the law,the Constitution,their sworn duty to thr American people then I want to know who are the “empty cans” who let justice become second or 20th,or whatever for political reasons as the whole system has failed,the “thugs” call the shots and Boehner is proving to be all mouth!

      I support “accountability” and abhor those who use racism(Holder),class warfare(Holder and Obama et al) and treat the Constitution,the Law and the American people like Feces,like “subjects” while a failed system is the result!

  • Reynold Palmer

    House Speaker John Boehner will not like the hellstorm that will come down on him from the TEA PARTY for this, weak leadership is Not way WE THE PEOPLE fought to take back the HOUSE! Politics be dam, do what is RIGHT!

  • Barbara J Struble

    Are you sure this is true?

    • Gordon

      What is it you are asking the truth of?

    • eib

      May not be true. I tweeted out the above story from Joe Miller’s email, and I got a tweet reply from Matthew Boyle (@mboyle1), a reporter with the Daily Caller, saying “Not true”. I sure hope it is not true, since it would be a travesty to drop this obvious law-breaking by government officials, that resulted in needless deaths.

  • Robert Young

    This is the last straw. Boehner has proven himself to be a RINO and will not support his own Party but consistently caves in to the Liberal Democrats. We, the people and voters, do not need a person like this as Speaker of the House. If he will not resign and step down, then he must be removed and a true Conservative put in his place. Enough talk. No more words, we want action. Remove Boehner and impeach Holder.

  • Bob

    Scum sucking yellow-striped bastards…if Obotulism is deranged enough to start pushing the red buttons on Iran and Russia and China jump into it….the totally worthless pukes on BOTH sides of the vile aisle in congress won’t be able to find rat holes big enough to crawl in and small enough to hide in. May they all rot in Hell from Boehner and Reid on downwards…and upwards. Then they’ll see in a flash of their own very final inglory what “fast and furious” really means.

    • WATCHER

      Boehner is just acting true to form. He has always been known as an alcoholic golfer of dubious sexual persuasion. Vote him out or impeach him.

  • siteunseen

    The GOP are a bunch of Elitist insider dumb-bells. One hand washes the other. Boehner needs to dry up, or get fired. GOP needs a sober speaker of the house. Otherwise, they can expect more of the same. He’s always “giving in” at the end. He’s totally without any effect whatsoever. Fire Boehner.

  • Gordon

    When will Boehner learn that you never compromise with evil, wrongdoing and murderers. You clean it up and get rid of it. Now we must get rid of Boehner since he has chosen to be a part of this murder of those who died in the hands of Holders gun games. He has done more damage to those with a backbone than to the enemy at large.

  • Robert Miller

    Boehner needs to do his job, or be replaced, NOW! This was an entirely unlawful operation initiated by the White House in an effort to do away with the 2nd Amendment. Hold needs to be impeached! That, along with refusal to prosecute the Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Philadelphia—on tape!

  • Red Herring

    A wise persons quote: “We have become more more afraid of political corectness than comunism”. A sad day for a once great country.

  • I am LIVID! Are you kidding me. Why do we even vote those evil doers in Washington are not doing what we want. I wonder how much the republicans were paid for this roll-over! Blow her, it’s time to go

  • Whoa I did not even say that last sentence auto correct strikes again I said boehner it’s time to go! Not what was printed

  • Dan

    Boehner is gone. Weak kneed, almost a RINO.
    I’m looking for a new House Speaker and it isn’t Boehner.
    He has no balls and wil lnot go after the losers like Holder and all the other anti- constitution followers.
    Boehner is not a conservative.

  • R.Stoddard

    Holder holds all the cards. He will not release any information because it will incriminate himself and Obama. If Congress were to indict Holder, they then must turn it over to the justice dept for prosecution. “Here Mr. Holder, prosecute yourself, please!” It is really that simple.

    • ttj

      Actually, that makes a lot of sense. If the investigation must be turned over to Holder’s Justice Department once it’s finished in congress, then there’s no reason to continue it. But Holder needs to be prosecuted once he leaves the government. Also, it’s no use just calling every Republican that you don’t agree with a RINO. Certainly there are some that are RINOs, but at least some are acting strategically. People need to reflect carefully before going around shouting “RINO!!!”

  • GramSam

    Boehner needs to go. There is no difference between him and Nancy.

  • Gina

    The republicans are just more socialist they all big spending, corruption protecting, lairs
    Ron Paul was our only hope but the American People keeping putting their votes up for sale to the highest bidder and lair. when will we learn that if either party favors one the people should vote in masses against both candidates.

    If we really want a constitutional federal Government, a natural born Citizen as our President the freedom to choose our own light bulbs all current members and the current white house resident must be fired, do you want to really stop the over 800 million dollar parties and the corruption we need a up rising like the nation has not seen since the civil war write in Ron Paul and tick every politician off. FIRE THEM ALL LIBERAL , CONSERVATIVE AND MODERATE BOTH SIDES CHICKEN, CORRUPT AND NO GOOD. ONLY ELECT INDEPENDENTS THAT VOW THE UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION AS WRITTEN. IT’S TIME THE CITIZENS TOOK OUR NATION BACK FROM ALL THE MARXIST AND THE MARXIST PLAY ALONG GO ALONGS

  • Dan

    Boehner is one of the boys/old men Larry Sinclair claimed did Obama’s “bidding”. Don’t think so? Name where Boehner stood his ground? He represents all the established Republicans, they want to preserve the old ways so as long as we are paying indulgences to them that they can spend from their “sacred” committee chairs they could care less about whether we are a Republic, socialist state or Fuedal Land owners where we pay tribute to them and in return they treat us as the peasants they see us as _ Vote them all out Remember Lugar’s partings shots – he speaks for all of them.

  • Anybody ready to primary Boehner?
    I want to know why we don’t have impeachment hearings for high treason against Obama and most of his administration.

  • What a bunch of wimps! Race card gets played again and looks like the suckers are still biting on it. I guess if one is black, he’s got to be beyond reproach. -A prejudiced decision to drop it simply because blacks are offended…again. When will blacks stop setting themselves apart while complaining about being segregated and/or discriminated against? This ends up being reverse discrimination; but now it’s their turn to deny it!

  • Lizelot

    If this is true, it’s certainly yet another sign that our so-called Republican leadership is caving in at the slightest resistance. I wanted to cut Boehner, new at his job, some slack earlier, but he simply doesn’t perform even up to par, let alone shine. I feel so sorry for the genuine conservatives in the House who must feel terribly abandoned and stymied. The same goes for the Senate. No wonder our country and morale is at such a historic low. But, people are waking up and taking steps! Now is the time to persist in cleaning out the Augias Stable, called Wash. DC.

  • This is just another classic case of the liberal, socialist, democratic party threatening with the race card and whatever else they can muster to stop a lawful investigation of Eric Holder, the biggest crook next to obama on the hill. I was hoping that Boehner would not fold when it came to making a stand against these criminals, but as always, he’s afraid of his job being taken away and he rather sell out “WE THE PEOPLE”! From this article you can see who is playing the race card–between the black ministers, the naacp, the aclu, labor unions, and an anti-discrimination organization. I don’t know about you but I feel like that we have been sold out by a certain number of Republicans, including Boehner, and all of the Democrats. This race card makes me sick!! So they will let Holder go about his merry way and continue to do anything that he damn well pleases. Take it all in because this will be what we have to put up with from now on if obama is not defeated in November!!!

  • hedgehog1

    This just proves that our congress has no scruples at all when it comes to tough decisions they are weak kneed with no backbone to do what is right they are using an incident to get out of doing their job. ERIC HOLDER SHOULD BE IMPEACHED

  • Bruce Feher

    WASHINGTON! 70 square mile surrounded by reality….

  • Buck

    If the republican party is to regain any credibility they are going to have to get rid of Boehner as speaker and get someone with guts in the office . I am adamatly opposed to every demonrat in the government , but by god if they do not pursue fast and furious to the end I WILL VOTE FOR OBAMASS !!
