Eric Himpton Holder, Jr. (born January 21, 1951) is the 82nd Attorney General of the United States, in office since 2009. Holder, serving in the administration of President Barack Obama, is the first black American to hold the position of U.S. Attorney General. As of 2014 Holder is one of three members of the original Obama cabinet that are still serving in their posts, the others being Tom Vilsack and Arne Duncan.
Holder previously served as a judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia and a United States Attorney. While a U.S. Attorney, he prosecuted Congressman Dan Rostenkowski (D–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 Barack Obama during Obama’s presidential campaign and one of three members of Obama’s vice-presidential selection committee. As a result of his refusal to meet the documentation demands of the Fast and Furious investigation, he became the only cabinet member in U.S. history to be held in contempt of Congress.
On September 25, 2014, the Justice Department said Holder would resign as soon as his successor is confirmed.
Lawmakers’ lawyers suggest fines, jail time for Eric Holder for contempt
Attorney General Eric Holder should be held in contempt of court for refusing to release “Fast and Furious” documents in line with a judge’s order — and even given jail time if necessary, lawmakers said.
Members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee requested U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson to fine Mr. Holder if he doesn’t comply with her own order issued back in August — the one where she said he couldn’t claim executive privilege to keep private certain documents related to the federal gun-running program, “Operation Fast and Furious,” Politico reported.
Russian fighters intercepted by US near Alaska
Two Russian fighters entered a US “air defense identification zone” two days ago and were intercepted by American F-22 jets near Alaska, military officers said.
The incursion on Wednesday was followed by a second incident on Thursday involving two Russian long-range bombers, which flew into Canada’s air defense identification zone (ADIZ) and were intercepted by two Canadian F-18 jets, officers said.
In both cases the Russian aircraft flew out of the area without incident.
The Russian warplanes “never entered US sovereign air space” or Canadian air space, said Major Jamie Humphries, a spokesman for the North American Aerospace Defense Command.
In Wednesday’s encounter near Alaska, the Russian fighters were accompanied by two refueling tankers and two long-range bombers, he said.
Although Russian aircraft have entered the zone previously it was “the first time in a long time” that fighter jets passed through the area, said a US defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
To safeguard a country’s air space, air defense identification zones extend beyond territorial air space and are designed as a buffer to give a government more time to respond to potentially hostile aircraft. But the zones do not fall under international treaties and are not regulated under international law.
The Russian aircraft flights coincided with a visit by Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko to Washington, where he made an impassioned address Thursday before a joint session of the US Congress, denouncing Russia’s military intervention in his country.
But Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said there was no indication of a link between Poroshenko’s visit to Washington and the air incidents.
“We’ve faced these kinds of incidents before. We take them very, very seriously. And we routinely intercept them,” Kirby told CNN.
“We’ll make our intentions known to Russia as we always do and we’ll certainly discuss our concerns with them at the appropriate time and in the appropriate venue.”
It was unclear if the Russian aircraft were in the area due to exercises announced by Moscow in far-eastern regions, including the off-shore naval training grounds of the Kamchatka region.
The Vostok-2014 exercise started on Friday and was scheduled to last through September 25 and included 100,000 troops and 120 aircraft, according to the Russian defense ministry.
In Wednesday’s encounter near Alaska, the Russian aircraft veered into the air defense zone at about 7 pm local time (0200 GMT). In Thursday’s episode near Canada, the Russian bombers flew into the area at about 1:30 am local time (0830 GMT).
This was just one of many incursions in recent months of Russia probing Americas Air Defenses.
China appears to be doing the same thing in the Pacific as the Chinese Navy probes the American Fleets.
Hopefully, President Obama will hear about this on the News

A prophetic warning from then-President George W. Bush before he left office about what would happen if the U.S. withdrew troops from Iraq too soon is getting new attention in light of the Islamic State’s gains, as each of his predictions appears to be coming true.
Bush, as discussed on “The Kelly File,” made the remarks (Video) in the White House briefing room on July 12, 2007, as he argued against those who sought an immediate troop withdrawal.
“To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States,” Bush cautioned.
He then ticked off a string of predictions about what would happen if the U.S. left too early.
“It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to Al Qaeda.
“It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.
“It would mean we allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.
“It would mean we’d be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.”
Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen says all these predictions have come true.
“Every single thing that President Bush said there in that statement is happening today,” he told Fox News.
To Bush’s first warning, the Islamic State terror group is effectively the successor to Al Qaeda in Iraq – and they’ve overrun several major cities in Iraq’s north while claiming broad swaths of territory in Syria. Further, the group has been behind mass killings of Iraqi civilians as well as the recent execution by beheading of two American journalists.
The Obama administration has warned that the group’s violence threatens to approach genocide levels.
Though President Obama says combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, American troops are nevertheless returning in some capacity. The president on Wednesday announced an expanded airstrike campaign against the group in Iraq and Syria, and is sending hundreds more U.S. military personnel into Iraq.
Some lawmakers and analysts say this could have been avoided if the Obama administration had left a residual force in Iraq, or at least had responded sooner to ISIS’ gains in northern Iraq over the past year.
Bush, before he left office, signed an agreement setting the stage for U.S. troops to withdraw by December 2011.
Obama, though, was urged by military advisers to keep thousands of service members after that deadline to help the shaky Iraqi government. But when Washington and Baghdad were unable to reach a renewed agreement governing the presence of U.S. forces in the country, the Obama administration withdrew virtually all troops at the end of 2011.
“We needed to leave a stabilizing force behind, and we didn’t. And of course, we know the rest is history,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told Fox News.
Barry should have also listened to Glenn Beck
Over the last six years, politically correct terms have been rammed down our throats incessantly.
The president has refused to address ISIS as the terrorist Islamic barbaric organization it is, because in his mind that may be politically incorrect.
FBI manuals have been revised to eliminate any reference to Islam.
In a response to a reporter in Wales, during a press conference, he stated that it will be very hard to ‘contain them now given the territory that they have accumulated’.
This from a president that was given information one year ago that ISIS was on the march.
So, instead of stopping them from invading Iraq, he dithered.
Thousands of innocent people have been killed in very revolting manners by primitive Islamic barbarians that we had the capability to stop.
Thousands have escaped only to become refugees.
They have no Air Force or Navy,…just ground based weapons that could have been destroyed early on in their campaign to establish an Islamic caliphate and kill anyone that refuses to accept Sharia law and it’s tenants.
It is a shame that we have been harnessed with a president that is incapable of making decisions in a timely manner.
A president that was elected by people that had no idea of whom they were electing and for the most part didn’t really care.
A president that does not have the experience to surround himself with advisers that see what is coming on the horizon, instead they have the tendency to use endless chatter against people that are more than happy to die for Allah.
Perhaps this is God’s way of giving US a slap on the hand, but, in the next two years, this United States of America will face one of the greatest tests we have ever faced.
Have faith America, we outnumber them and we need to show them that in November.
