Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will return as a partner at the law firm he had left to become the nation’s top law enforcement official, his new employer said in a statement.

Holder, who led the Justice Department from 2009 to 2015 and was one of President Barack Obama’s longest-serving cabinet members, will return to Covington & Burling, where he was previously a partner from 2001 to 2009, the law firm said.

At Covington & Burling’s Washington DC office, Holder will focus on complex cases “including matters that are international in scope and raise significant regulatory enforcement issues,” the law firm said.

Some of us remember that Barack Obama jetted off to a fundraiser in Las Vegas on the night our consulate in Benghazi was attacked by terrorists associated with Al Qaeda. Now you might be able to offer this defense of the president: He can do his job from anywhere. He has communication capabilities wherever he goes, and he has the freedom to use them any time he wants.

And, yes, that’s true. And on the night of September 11, 2012, he did make use of his communication tools to talk with then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about what was happening in Benghazi. Not only that, but it turns out there is a transcript of that call in the possession of the State Department.

So what did they say? Ha! They’re not telling you, sillies. What they said is for them to know and you to not find out.

States Don’t Have to Comply: The Anti-Commandeering Doctrine

Tenth Amendment Center

 

Most Americans believe that the federal government stands absolutely supreme.

Nobody can question its dictates.

Nobody can refuse its edicts.

Nobody can resist its commands.

This is simply not true.

Laws passed in pursuance of the Constitution do stand as the supreme law of the land. But that doesn’t in any way imply the federal government lords over everything and everybody in America.

How heartwarming that Najee Harmon enjoys the full support of his community:

This is the mentality our liberal ruling class is using its control of the information establishment to foster. I do not envy police their job.

Tyranny Just Keeps Coming

Independent Sentinel

Taxation without representation is tyranny and Americans no longer seem to care.

Our forebears fought for freedom from England because of the excessive taxation by King George III who saw the colonists as easy pickings to pay off his war debt. How ironic that we now allow unelected bureaucrats to rewrite laws to increase taxes because we are having fun or driving to work.

We allow taxes on “amusement” as if it were an unsustainable sin and we are going to soon be tracked and taxed by the mile in our cars with no regard for our privacy rights.

Unelected bureaucrats in Chicago’s finance department ruled last month, amending that their established amusement tax will include “electronically delivered amusements.” That includes streaming music, movies and television. It also includes online gaming.

City residents will pay an extra 9% tax to use services such as Netflix and Spotify.
