Stop Eric Holder

Probably the most troublesome appointment announced by Barack Obama so far is that of Eric Holder as Attorney General. Holder has a long and bad record from his previous years in the Justice department during the Clinton administration.

Opposed to Holder without Apology

Holder was deeply involved in the scandalous pardon of fugitive criminal Marc Rich at the end of the Clinton administration. Rich had been a fugitive for years, but after his ex-wife contributed money to Clinton, he was pardoned.

Holder was also a major part of pardoning of two Weathermen terrorists.

He was also involved in the pardoning of sixteen Puerto Rican FALN terrorists during Hillary's campaign for Senate in New York. The terrorists hadn't even asked for pardons.

He was also involved in the commando raid that took Elian Gonzales away from his legal guardians in Miami and gave him back to Fidel Castro.

Holder is a major supporter of gun control. He opposed the Heller decision by the Supreme Court and does not believe that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

For all these reasons and more, the nomination of Eric Holder should be defeated if it is not first withdrawn.
