President Barack Obama praised retiring Attorney General Eric Holder yesterday for advancing the cause of same-sex “marriage” in the United States by refusing to defend federal law.

“And several years ago,” Obama said in a joint appearance with Holder at the White House, “he recommended that our government stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act–a decision that was vindicated by the Supreme Court, and opened the door to federal recognition of same-sex marriage, and federal benefits for same-sex couples. It’s a pretty good track record.”

In his own statement at the event, Holder praised Obama for advancing the “visions” he said he and Obama had “always shared.”

By Susan Jones.

Two days before Attorney General Eric Holder announced his resignation, a federal court ordered the Justice Department to produce, by October 22, a detailed list of Fast and Furious documents sought by a conservative watchdog group.

Judicial Watch requested the documents in a June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Three months later, in September 2012, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA lawsuit, seeking all of the documents the Obama White House was withholding from Congress under a claim of executive privilege.

This week, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Justice Department must submit a “Vaughn Index” of the requested documents by October 22 — a three-week extension of the earlier Oct. 1 deadline set by the court.

A Vaughn index identifies each document withheld; explains the legal basis for withholding the documents; and explains how their disclosure would be a problem. Basically, in this case, it forces the Justice Department to justify withholding the information that Judical Watch has sued to obtain.

On July 18, U.S. District Court Judge John D. Bates ordered the Justice Department to produce the document list by October 1. In his ruling on Tuesday, Judge Bates denied DOJ’s motion to extend that Oct. 1 deadline to Nov. 3, one day before the midterm election.

    Even with this court order, I will be surprised if anything happens on this. The Lyin King and Holder just do whatever they want to do and that serpent Harry Reid let them get by with it.

    Wow! Obama openly praising violation of federal law by the highest law officer in the nation. Reprehensible! What a disgrace and a shameful blight on the office of the President. Obama must be convicted and held accountable for his crimes of High Treason against his oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America and rule of law. Holder must be included in these charges as well. Obama—Criminal -in-Chief and his henchman Holder. GOD help us!!
