Politics has spilled over into the normally pristine nature of… international soccer. Feeling slighted (by President Trump and by extension the U.S.), Mexicans across their country (Mexico) are ready to tune in to today’s big game between the Mexico and the U.S. for a World Cup qualifying contest.

“Soccer-crazed Mexicans tune in for every big game, crowding bars, restaurants and any other place with a television. But Sunday’s match will be exceptional…” — LATimes.com

“President Trump has offended us, he is threatening us with his wall. If Mexico beats the United States, Mexicans will celebrate like never before.” – Mario López, 38, who sells sports clothes from a stand in Mexico City.

Also on the LATimes you can read about the 83-year US/Mexico soccer rivalry. Who knew?

Meanwhile, in the U.S. the rivalry is more subdued. Subdued to the point that no quotes are available by anyone who gives a $#@%! This is soccer we’re talking about!

Came across this and thought it was humorous. Supposedly these guys put up new message every week. Earlier the sign read “I like my guns like Obama likes his voters: Unregistered.” 🙂

For you Main Stream Media consumers, Sgt. Tahmooressi is the American soldier who accidentally drove into Mexico and was arrested (and subsequently abused) for guns he had in his vehicle. If they won’t make the trade, do you think they’ll take Obama anyway? (NBC Reports Obama was going to release these terrorists anyway…)

Attorney General Eric Holder

Eric Holder – Department of Justice

Preface

“When it comes to liberals, I have to give them credit where it is due. So here it is. They have got balls! Cojones! And Big Ones! They can whip it out. Piss all over your leg; tell you it’s raining and never bat an eye. They can even act indignant when you dare call them on it. I don’t know what kind of mindset it takes to develop these skills (and I don’t think I want to); but liberals everywhere have it and flaunt it.” — Lynn Johnson (July 7,2010) These Aren’t the Global Warming Liars You’re Looking For


Opening Show

Yesterday, (June 7, 2012) Eric Holder made an appearance before a congressional committee to give testimony about internal Justice Department emails. These emails show that top officials at the Department of Justice knew about the program Fast and Furious way sooner than they testified earlier. In legal circles this would be called “proof of perjury”.

Just as Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) was about to question Mr. Holder, the Attorney General jumped up on the table in front of the committee, unzipped, whipped it out, and proceeded to piss on the committee members a he sang “Singing in the Rain”.

When asked to stop pissing on the committee, Attorney General Holder asserted with a straight deadpan face that he didn’t know what they were talking about… that is was raining.


Emails

On a side note to the story, concerning the emails in question; Holder later claimed that the phrase “Fast and Furious” in the emails did not refer to Fast and Furious. Nope, it referred to another gun-walking operation known as “Wide Receiver” conducted earlier and from a different location.

Congressman Chaffetz presented Holder with emails that mention both operations in the same sentence:

October 17, 2010; Deputy Assistant Attorney General Jason Weinstein to James Trusty states: “Do you think we should have Lanny participate in press when Fast and Furious and Laura’s Tucson case [Wide Receiver] are unsealed? It’s a tricky case, given the number of guns that have walked, but it is a significant set of prosecutions.”

October 18, 2010; James Trusty writes back to Weinstein: “I think so, but the timing will be tricky, too. Looks like we’ll be able to unseal the Tucson case sooner than the Fast and Furious (although this may be just the difference between Nov. and Dec)… It’s not clear how much we’re involved in the main F and F [Fast and Furious] case, but we have Tucson [Wide Receiver] and now a new unrelated case with [redacted] targets. It’s not any big surprise that a bunch of US guns are being used in MX [Mexico], so I’m not sure how much grief we get for ‘guns walking.’ It may be more like ‘Finally, they’re going after people who sent guns down there.’”

With this evidence right in front of him Holder maintained his assertion that all references to “Fast and Furious” mean “Wide Receiver” with the same deadpan expression he held earlier.


A few of my thoughts on this…

You know, my first gut reaction is to blame Eric Holder… but I don’t. Yes, Holder is a partisan hack for the Obama administration. But everyone has known that from day one. It’s Congress that puts up with his bullshit. It’s Congress that has let him coast with no consequences for his unethical and yes criminal activity.

So, I blame Congress. I blame Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).

Chaffetzs response to Holder figuratively pissing on him was: After a long pause, he said:

“No, it doesn’t. It says Fast and Furious. ‘Do you think we should have Lanny participate in press when Fast and Furious and Laura’s Tucson case [Wide Receiver] are unsealed?’ It’s specific to Fast and Furious. That is not true, Mr. Attorney General. I’m happy to share it with you.”

Notice that the words “lying” and “Son-of-a-Bitch” didn’t appear anywhere in that response. They would have had I just been pissed on by this cocky, lying, %$%#&*^; followed by whatever process is required for charges of obstruction and perjury.
