"We Must Brainwash People Against Guns" Eric Holder On Gun Control In 1995 Interview

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


 

Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. (born January 21, 1951) is the 82nd and current Attorney General of the United States and the first African American to hold the position, serving under President Barack Obama. Holder previously served as a judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and a United States Attorney. In that office he prosecuted Congressman Dan Rostenkowski (Democrat, Illinois) for corruption charges related to his role in the Congressional Post Office scandal. Later, he was Deputy Attorney General of the United States and worked at the law firm of Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C. He was senior legal advisor to then-Senator Barack Obama during Obama’s presidential campaign and one of three members of Obama’s vice-presidential selection committee. Highly controversial, there have been numerous requests for him to resign as Attorney General

 

After graduating from law school, Holder joined the U.S. Justice Department’s new Public Integrity Section during an interval lasting from 1976 to 1988. During his time there, he assisted in the prosecution of Democratic Congressman John Jenrette for bribery discovered in the Abscam sting operation. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan appointed Holder to serve as a judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

Holder stepped down from the bench in 1993 to accept an appointment as United States Attorney for the District of Columbia from President Bill Clinton. He was the first black American U.S. Attorney in that office. At the beginning of his tenure, he oversaw the conclusion of the corruption case against Dan Rostenkowski, part of the Congressional Post Office scandal. He was a U.S. Attorney until his elevation to Deputy Attorney General in 1997. Holder also served on The George Washington

Holder briefly served as Acting Attorney General under President George W. Bush until the Senate confirmed Bush’s nominee John Ashcroft.

Private practice

From 2001 until he became Attorney General, Holder worked as an attorney at Covington & Burling in Washington, D.C., representing clients such as Merck and the National Football League. He represented the NFL during its dog fighting investigation against Michael Vick.

In 2004, Holder helped negotiate an agreement with the Justice Department for Chiquita Brands International in a case that involved Chiquita’s payment of “protection money” to the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia, a group on the U.S. government’s list of terrorist organizations.[23][24] In the agreement, Chiquita’s officials pleaded guilty and paid a fine of $25 million. Holder represented Chiquita in the civil action that grew out of this criminal case. In March 2004, Holder and Covington & Burling were hired by Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich to act as a special investigator to the Illinois Gaming Board. The investigation was subsequently canceled on May 18, 2004.

The firm represented Guantanamo inmates but Holder “never participated directly in the firm’s Guantanamo work”, and is not expected to recuse himself from matters pertaining to it.

While D.C. v. Heller was being heard by the Supreme Court in 2008, Holder joined the Reno-led amicus brief, which urged the Supreme Court to uphold Washington, D.C.’s handgun ban and said the position of the Department of Justice, from Franklin Roosevelt through Clinton, was that the Second Amendment does not protect an individual right to keep and bear arms for purposes unrelated to a State’s operation of a well-regulated militia.  Holder said that overturning the 1976 law “opens the door to more people having more access to guns and putting guns on the streets.”

In late 2007, Holder joined then-United States Senator Barack Obama’s presidential campaign as a senior legal advisor. He served on Obama’s vice presidential selection committee University’s Board of Trustees in 1996 and 1997

Holder briefly served as Acting Attorney General under President George W. Bush until the Senate confirmed Bush’s nominee John Ashcroft.

      – Ban guns? Hmm. Let’s do the real not fake math:

      To prevent being abject and glaring insidious hypocrites, DEMOCRATS and the left wing, if they move to ban all automatic weapons and guns (gutting the 2nd Amendment and the ability of American citizens to protect themselves and loved ones) liberals must now also simultaneously do the following immediately:
      – The DEMOCRAT party must now IMMEDIATELY ban and end ALL GLOBAL WARS, disarming all citizens, killers, and war mongers GLOBALLY.

      –Vietnam War, a DEMOCRAT party controlled 10-year induced and perpetrated war: Result = FAIL – wrong on many levels (58,000 American soldier deaths, wounded, missing in action not counted in this number, untreated PTSD and returning combat soldiers not supported in any manner of speaking)
      – The DEMOCRAT’S failure to find and eliminate osama bin laden using the most sophisticated weaponry and intelligence apparatus available and known to humankind in the history of the world (circa 1999) = FAILED and wrong; eventually resulting in 3,000 + deaths on 911 and subsequent “War on Terror”; eventually gutting our freedom of movement, speech, and other Constitutional guarantees now largely ignored or watered down. DEMOCRATS did not overturn or attempt to overturn anything G.W. Bush enacted during his Presidency curtailing our freedoms.
      – The DEMOCRAT party pledge to not start any further wars resulting with invasions in Libya, now possibly Syria & Iran; long term wars not ending any time soon in Afghanistan, Iraq after winning the popular vote in 2009 = FAIL (not counting any secret wars in which we are fully unaware)
      – In every global conflict; guns are used, perpetuating their use worldwide. I have been to war, they don’t use water pistols and harsh language to fight wars. (guns, automatic weapons, bombs, grenades, fire, poison, infection, booby traps, torture, and many other maniacal methods of death and destruction)
      – Most criminals have and use guns; are ALL of those guns guaranteed to be confiscated and destroyed????
      – Therefore, if guns are to be FULLY banned by DEMOCRATS, we cannot stop with law abiding American citizens, we are but a small percentage of a world population that all have access to guns and automatic weapons. It’s abject and utter gun hypocrisy and will not work to stop criminals and murderer’s from killing others; either by political affiliation or private individual.

      Just keep the picture of this scumbag lawyer in your mind, until the right time!

      People who are not criminals and own guns, will protect those who are victims of gun violence. If one single person in the school or theater shootings had a gun, do you really think that so many people would have died?
      If you make guns illegal, or try to make it unpopular to have, own, or carry guns, that wont change the fact that the criminals will still desire, obtain, and use guns for crimes.
      Throughout History, taking the guns from the population has usually if not always ended in genocide of the people who give up their guns.
      Americas govt. is currently more corrupt than it was when the southern states went to war over the Central Govt. oppressing them and violating their Constitutional rights.
      If we give up any of our Gun freedoms now (and the Supreme Law of our land simply does not allow any infringement upon that right, for the above reasons), than we can look forward to oppression the likes of which we saw in the Nazi regime. If you want me to show you the proof of all this, just ask me by email, and I will provide it for free: harleyborgais at gmail dat com
      Or you can see much of it on my website (free, without ads): freeornottobe.org
      “A well regulated Militia, being NECESSARY to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
      This speech by Eric Holder really is an act of betrayal of the American people, and our rights, freedoms, and culture. It is border line if not actually an act of Treason as well.
      I was surprised at how obviously wrong his statements were, and how he actually did use the phrase “brainwash people”. Can it be any more obvious that Eric Holder is acting against the Supreme Law or the ‘Land of the Free’?
      “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
      “This Constitution…shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”
      Take a look at this list of examples of how important gun rights really are: Mass Killings Stopped by Armed Citizens… (Saturday, December 15, 2012, on Website: Before Its News)
      Please dont be foolish enough to allow our only means to protect ourselves from govt. total corruption and invasion to be taken from us!
