Videos: Darrell Issa and Trey Gowdy go after Eric Holder (again) over Fast and Furious

As expected, the exchange between Eric Holder and Darrell Issa at today's House Judiciary committee hearing was the most compelling but in watching these hearings over a span of a year and a half now, there doesn't seem to be any new ground being broken with respect to holding the Attorney General accountable. It's good theater but it's becoming tiresome theater as well.

Nonetheless, this might be the most visibly agitated Issa has been to date. He relies on the optics of the copies of the wiretap applications that have come into his possession and doesn't let up despite Holder's continued stonewalling and interruptions from Democratic committee members.

If there's one thing today's hearing confirmed, it's that unless that contempt citation is issued to Holder, no new ground is going to be broken.

The other exchange of note came courtesy of Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC). Here, Gowdy takes aim at Holder's charge that the Fast and Furious investigation is politically motivated.

Again, however, for new ground to be broken, that contempt citation needs to be issued.

Confirmed: Obama lied in 2008 about not being Socialist Party member

Well, it appears that Rep. Allen West (R-FL) may have made a critical omission when he said that between 78-81 Democratic Congressmen are communists; he should have included President Barack Obama. The Democratic Socialists of America caucus (DSA) actually identified 70 members of Congress in 2009 who are socialists / communists. To be fair, until now, the American people had to take Obama at his word when he said in 2008 that he was NOT a member of the Socialist New Party.

National Review's Stanley Kurtz now has proven Barack Obama was a registered Socialist Party member:
On the evening of January 11, 1996, while Mitt Romney was in the final years of his run as the head of Bain Capital, Barack Obama formally joined the New Party, which was deeply hostile to the mainstream of the Democratic party and even to American capitalism. In 2008, candidate Obama deceived the American public about his potentially damaging tie to this third party. The issue remains as fresh as today’s headlines, as Romney argues that Obama is trying to move the United States toward European-style social democracy, which was precisely the New Party’s goal.

In late October 2008, when I wrote here at National Review Online that Obama had been a member of the New Party, his campaign sharply denied it, calling my claim a “crackpot smear.” Fight the Smears, an official Obama-campaign website, staunchly maintained that “Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party.” I rebutted this, but the debate was never taken up by the mainstream press.

Recently obtained evidence from the updated records of Illinois ACORN at the Wisconsin Historical Society now definitively establishes that Obama was a member of the New Party. He also signed a “contract” promising to publicly support and associate himself with the New Party while in office.
Kurtz even posted an excerpt from a copy of the minutes from that 1996 meeting. It says:
Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party.
This demonstrably proves that the Obama administration does in fact demonize and smear opponents who  make credible and truthful claims against it that are damaging. This should naturally lend more credibility to those who claim to be victims of these tactics.

As a socialist, Barack Obama necessarily sought the rise of communism, according to a standard established by Discover the Networks, which states in part:
Marxist doctrine holds that just as society evolved from feudalism to capitalism, it will inexorably progress still further to socialism and eventually communism. Communists consider socialism to be an intermediary step between capitalism (out of which socialism is said to grow) and communism. That is, communism (whose motto is “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs”) is deemed a further development, or “higher stage,” of socialism (whose motto is “From each according to his ability, to each according to his deeds”). Communism, in other words, is viewed as the more “perfect” of two systems that both advocate public ownership of the means of production, centralized economic planning, and the widespread redistribution of wealth.
By this standard, Barack Obama is a stealth Communist. After all, as a child, he was mentored by a member of the Communist Party USA (CPUSA), Frank Marshall Davis. Then again, people who point this out are typically the target of demonization and smears.

Bill Clinton recently mocked Allen West for the congressman's outing of Communists in Congress. Again, this is evidence that there is truth to West's claims, in light of what has now been proven by Kurtz about Obama.

Clinton lied under oath so what are the odds this was a lie too?

Slam dunk.

Video: Bureau of Labor Statistics Commissioner the latest to channel Jim Carrey character

Acting Commissioner for the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) John Galvin is the latest official under the Obama administration to channel Jim Carrey's character in 'Fun with Dick and Jane.' Galvin is made to look beyond foolish in answering questions posed to him by Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa, who mockingly and rightfully sought clarification on what the BLS considers 'green jobs.'

Mark Levin: Give Boehner's job to Scott Walker

After writing about the stark contrast between Speaker John Boehner and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, I was pleased to see that hours later, radio talk show host Mark Levin said Boehner's job should be given to Walker.

The best part? The Speaker of the House doesn't have to be a member of Congress.
