Contempt

Contempt

Despite the theatrical exodus of its most useless faction of lawmakers, Congress coalesced into a bipartisan coalition this week to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for his obstruction of investigations into the Fast and Furious debacle. Here’s the roll call for the contempt vote. Kudos to the seventeen Democrats-including New York’s own Kathy...

Stand With Arizona

Stand With Arizona

As always, American Rattlesnake stands with Sheriff Joe, Governor Jan Brewer, and the good people of Arizona.  Even as Janet Napolitano’s flunkies and the Obama administration continue their war against Arizona, the vast majority of ordinary Americans, and rank and file ICE agents,  stand for law and order and against an illegal invasion aided and...

Intermission

My apologies for not addressing the proverbial elephant in the room, but I’ve been busy debating the other side for the past few days. I’ll post my thoughts on the Supreme Court’s momentous decision-along with some helpful links-in the days ahead, but until then, enjoy a lively exchange on the subject of immigration with our...

Lawbreaker

Secretary of State Kris Kobach explains in detail just why the Obama administration acts in contempt of the law, and we discover why the misleading declaration that it will only benefit 800,000 illegal immigrants is a blatant distortion of the facts.

As John Adams once said. This quotation is especially relevant today, when we have an administration that refuses to acknowledge them even when called to account  by the Congress of the United States. Rep. Trey Gowdy lays out just why Attorney General Eric Holder was sanctioned by the House Committee on Oversight and Government...

Department of Obstruction

Department of Obstruction

Here’s the link to the full hearing of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which resulted in Attorney General Eric Holder being held in contempt. Kudos to Chairman Issa and the twenty-two other Republicans-including Syracuse’s own Ann Marie Buerkle-who had the gumption to hold this administration to account for its obstruction of...

A Nightmarish Dream

With the Obama administration’s unilateral decision to ratify what up to this point had merely been a de facto amnesty-literally interpreting catch and release-and the cravenly insipid Republican response to the President’s latest patently unconstitutional power grab, patriotic Americans wouldn’t be blamed for feeling powerless when it comes to protecting their country. Judicial intervention...

Flout All The Laws!

With Senator John Cornyn now calling upon Eric Holder to resign, and a contempt citation in the offing, the chorus of voices demanding accountability from Barack Obama’s Department of Justice seems to have reached a critical mass. At the very least,  it has caused the current Attorney General to yield to Chairman Darrell Issa in at...

Stand Up, Speak Out

I’ll delve more deeply into President Obama’s Unemployment For Americans Act in future updates, but today I’d like to highlight a speech made by the intrepid Michelle Malkin at this weekend’s Right Online conference. It’s particularly apt in light of the President’s continued policy of lashing out at dissenters-not a new phenomenon, unfortunately-such as...

Political Calculation

I’ll post a more expansive exploration of the President’s latest unconstitutional administrative amnesty in the days ahead, but for now I’ll provide some pertinent links, including Janet Napolitano’s risible press release and video of Barack Obama’s abortive press conference in the Rose Garden-seen above.
