Most Corrupt Attorney General In History Concocts Yet Another Crooked Scheme

Holder Cut Left-Wing Groups In On $17 Bil BofA Deal – Investors Business Daily

.

.
Extortion: Radical Democrat activist groups stand to collect millions from Attorney General Eric Holder’s record $17 billion deal to settle alleged mortgage abuse charges against Bank of America.

Buried in the fine print of the deal, which includes $7 billion in soft-dollar consumer relief, are a raft of political payoffs to Obama constituency groups. In effect, the government has ordered the nation’s largest bank to create a massive slush fund for Democrat special interests.

Besides requiring billions in debt forgiveness payments to delinquent borrowers in Cleveland, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Oakland, Detroit, Chicago and other Democrat strongholds – and up to $500 million to cover personal taxes owed on those checks – the deal requires BofA to make billions in new loans, while also building affordable low-income rental housing in those areas.

If there are leftover funds in four years, the settlement stipulates the money will go to Interest on Lawyers’ Trust Account (IOLTA), which provides legal aid for the poor and supports left-wing causes, and NeighborWorks of America, which provides affordable housing and funds a national network of left-wing community organizers operating in the mold of Acorn.

In fact, in 2008 and 2009, NeighborWorks awarded a whopping $25 million to Acorn Housing.

In 2011 alone, NeighborWorks shelled out $35 million in “affordable housing grants” to 115 such groups, according to its website. Recipients included the radical Affordable Housing Alliance, which pressures banks to make high-risk loans in low-income neighborhoods and which happens to be the former employer of HUD’s chief “fair housing” enforcer.

BofA gets extra credit if it makes at least $100 million in direct donations to IOLTA and housing activist groups approved by HUD.

According to the list provided by Justice, those groups include come of the most radical bank shakedown organizations in the country, including:

• La Raza, which pressures banks to expand their credit box to qualify more low-income Latino immigrants for home loans;

• National Community Reinvestment Coalition, Washington’s most aggressive lobbyist for the disastrous Community Reinvestment Act;

• Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America, whose director calls himself a “bank terrorist;”

• Operation Hope, a South Central Los Angeles group that’s pressuring banks to make “dignity mortgages” for deadbeats.

Worse, one group eligible for BofA slush funds is a spin-off of Acorn Housing’s branch in New York.

It’s now rebranded as Mutual Housing Association of New York, or MHANY. HUD lists MHANY’s contact as Ismene Speliotis, who previously served as New York director of Acorn Housing.

Most Corrupt Attorney General In History Embraces Being Called An Activist ‘1,000 Percent’

Holder Embraces Being Called An Activist ‘1000 Percent’ – Daily Caller

.
…………

Eric Holder does not shy away from being called an activist – in fact, the U.S. Attorney General considers the label an honor.

“If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label,” Holder told journalist Juan Williams in an interview published at The Hill.

“Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job,” he continued, adding that “the responsibility of the attorney general is to change things [and] bring us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents.”

Asked later about his response to critics who claim that the Justice Department houses an activist civil rights division and an activist chief, Holder said “I agree with you 1000 percent and [I am] proud of it.”

Holder also said he is troubled by the affirmative action stance of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who opposes the policy in maintaining that “the way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”

“There are still [racial] issues we as a society are working our way through,” Holder said. “And the lack of desire to do that, I think, undermines the ability that I think is inherent in the American people to make progress. But it also does not prepare us for demographic changes, the likes of which this country has never seen.”

Holder’s activism on racial issues is nothing new.

In a profile at Politico last month, he was described as President Obama’s “heat shield.” Sources close to Holder said he is able “to talk about things the president can’t talk about as easily.”

His stance on race was on display early on in the Obama administration when Holder infamously claimed that the U.S. is a “nation of cowards” when it comes to racial issues. Those comments and Holder’s hesitation in investigating two Philadelphia New Black Panther Party members accused of voter intimidation outside of a precinct in Philadelphia in 2008 won him the ire of conservatives.

The interview did highlight some of Holder’s bi-partisan initiatives, including the year-old “Smart on Crime” program which focuses on reducing the prison population and prison costs. Republican senators such as Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and John Cornyn are backing the project, which has made headway in the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Eric Holder DEEPLY Offended over Redskins name

Oh no! Not Offended, oh anything but offended!

Via NBC:

While he’s not pursuing it in his job as the United States Attorney General, Eric Holder’s feelings about the Redskins nickname are clear.

Holder made it clear he was opposed to the name during an appearance on ABC’s This Week.

“I’m going to speak very personally now,” Holder said, via ESPN.com.“The name ought to be changed. It’s an offensive name. 

Perhaps our AG should pick a new name of which he approves? Maybe the Gun Runners? The Race Baiters? Whatever, the new name, we should do it FAST, so Holder will not be so FURIOUS!

Congressman Gosar To File For Eric Holder’s Impeachment Over Illegal Alien Smuggling

Congressman To File For Eric Holder’s Impeachment As Complicit In Human Smuggling – Conservative Infidel

Rep Paul Gosar (R-AZ) told U.S. News that the plans to either draft articles of impeachment or co-sponsor and add his name as the 27th to an existing impeachment bill that was introduced in November by fellow Congressman Pete Olson (R-TX).

.

.
While the general lawlessness of the Obama/Holder regime has taken many objectionable forms, the final straw for Gosar is what he calls his “illegal alien smuggling,” his complicit disengagement from enforcement and implied consent to the ongoing activity as it relates to the transport and release of illegal aliens in Arizona by the DHS.

In a Thursday press release, Gosar said, “Flooding our streets with illegal aliens who are being abandoned without resources is not just inhumane and cruel, it is a crime and federal law bans alien smuggling.” He continues, saying, “This is the most lawless administration in history… It starts at the top with Eric Holder and if the chief law enforcement officer of the United States is not going to enforce the laws of this land, then he should be impeached.”

While Gosar is not a household name, he has had success previously in recruiting cosponsors in response to the illegal actions of Holder’s “Justice” Department during a congressional investigation into the ATF Fast and Furious scandal.

The result of Gosar’s previous effort was a vote 255-67 to hold Holder in contempt of Congress. Gosar had called for Holder’s resignation, but Obama stepped in and offered Holder protection under a dubious declaration of executive privilege. Gosar says he won’t make the mistake of calling for a resignation this time. He’ll be setting his sights on impeachment and has already spoken with the House leadership.

Rep Gosar said of his efforts, “My calls have been very, very successful in the Republican aspect and right now I’m working on the leadership in the House. It’s a difficult move because it means we’re coming to the last vestiges of how we deal with how we solve these problems, but when people look at the facts, we can’t keep doing this, we have to be a law-abiding country.”

Corrupt Liar Eric Holder: No Plans To Investigate Secret Waiting Lists And Veteran Deaths At VA Hospitals

Eric Holder: No Plans At DOJ To Investigate Secret Waiting Lists And Veteran Deaths At VA Hospitals – Weekly Standard

Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the Department of Justice doesn’t have any plans to investigate allegations that veterans placed on secret waiting lists at VA hospitals died while waiting for care.

.

.
“Well, obviously these reports if they’re true are unacceptable, and the allegations are being taken very seriously by the administration. But I don’t have any announcements at this time with regard to anything that the Justice Department is doing,” Holder told reporters at a press conference.

“This is something on our radar screen at this point, but there is an investigation being done by the [VA] inspector general, and we’ll see what happens as a result of that inquiry and other information that comes to light in some form or fashion,” Holder added.

According to CNN, at least 40 veterans died while waiting for treatment at one VA hospital in Phoenix. Members of Congress have said in recent weeks that the inspector general investigation is inadequate and have called on the DOJ to launch its own investigation.

“Because these cases involve individuals working in their capacity as federal employees, and these incidents have occurred at federal facilities throughout the nation, I urge you to work with the state Attorneys General in Arizona and across the country to investigate these preventable deaths thoroughly, determine appropriate criminal charges, and prosecute the offenders accordingly,” Rep. Tom Rooney, a Republican of Florida, wrote in a letter to Holder on May 1.

Holder’s announcement that the DOJ doesn’t currently have any plans to investigate the VA hospital scandal was made Tuesday afternoon at a press conference held to announce that the DOJ was filing a lawsuit against lenders under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, which caps interest rates on student loans at 6 percent for members of the military.

“We are here to announce a landmark step forward in our effort to achieve justice for victims of improper lending practices–and to protect the men and women of America’s armed services from anyone who would take advantage of those who wear the uniform,” Holder said.
