Reported that GOP leaders succumb to race card, will end Fast and Furious investigation

by Doug Book,  staff writer

“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.” (1)

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 believe 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.” (2)

But according 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.”  (3)

In short, John Boehner and other Republican big wigs are more afraid of the race card and its steady play by the Obama-owned national media than of the bitter –yet presumably brief—disappointment of conservatives, disgusted because the GOP has once again opted for the cowardly betrayal of justice and of the Party base.

If Vanderboegh’s sources are correct, hundreds of innocent people will have died, Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata will have been shot to death, the Obama Regime will have launched a brutal and deadly assault on the 2nd Amendment, yet all will be forgiven and forgotten in the name of political expedience.

Vanderboegh was certainly right about Boehner’s work to delay Representative Darrell Issa’s contempt proceedings against Holder. We should all hope his sources have gotten this one wrong.

  1. If you noticed, the conference only included BLACK churches………………wonder why?????!!!!!

  2. What Boehner, and others in the House and Senate Republican leadership fail to understand is that Americans have developed a long memory regarding the laundry list of RINO-Socialists abuses against the Liberty and Freedom of American citizens.
    Held in our cross-hairs as ineffective, hand-wringing, sell-outs….we are ALSO targeting them, along with their Marxist "D counterparts, as being unfit to hold further office.
    Boehner etal, may pull the plug on F&F…but we'll be pulling the plug on them in November.
    Representative government means obeying the needs, policies, and dictates of the States and its' peoples (constituencies) by both federal Senators and Representatives…their tenure in Washington has never been about what THEY personally want as individuals….and it MOST CERTAINLY has never been about strengthening the federal government to the detriment of each States' individual Sovereignty.
    Bring on the States' nullification powers !!!!!
