It’s really simple when attempting to judge whether or not Loretta Lynch is appropriate for the Attorney General position.
You simply have to ask here the following Yes or No questions on whether, given the publicly-available evidence, she would refer and take each of these cases to a Grand Jury:
- Fast -n- Furious. (Gun running, obstruction of justice, money laundering and criminal conspiracy for starters.)
- IRS Targeting, most-specifically the apparent intentional obstruction of discovery (that’s obstruction of justice, among other things.)
- The apparent and intentional law-breaking at The Fed, evidenced by Bernanke’s use of pseudonyms during his bailout discussions and the clear warning by a Fed counsel member that what he was doing was probably illegal.
- The apparent and intentional law-breaking by virtually all major US banks during that same time period.
- The apparent and intentional law-breaking by HFT traders from roughly that time period to today, inclusive.

Walker voters definitively rejected all statewide opposition to his policies.
A massive rebuke to the state Democratic Party, its statist policies, and the unrelentingly vicious, negative campaign in which they engaged was delivered last night by the voters of Wisconsin. They re-elected Governor Scott Walker — by the largest margin yet — for the third time in four years.
Yet the win was much more substantial than that. Every Republican incumbent running in the state was re-elected. All but one statewide office (the largely ceremonial secretary of State) up for election was won by Republicans. The GOP picked up two Senate seats in the state legislature (giving the Republicans a 19:14 majority) and three seats in the state Assembly, where they had already enjoyed a more comfortable margin. And the new members make the majority considerably more conservative than it had been previously.
Here are the results with additional commentary:

Attorney General Eric Holder, who announced his resignation (on 9/25), leaves a dismal legacy at the Justice Department. Of all his legal innovations, one was especially pernicious: the demonizing of state attempts to ensure honest elections.
As a former U.S. attorney general under President Reagan, and a former Ohio secretary of state, we would like to say something that might strike some as obvious:
Those who oppose photo voter-ID laws and other election-integrity reforms are intent on making it easier to commit vote fraud.

Last week, former Governor Tommy Thompson endorsed Brad, saying, “The people of Wisconsin deserve an Attorney General dedicated to the public safety of our great state… I’m proud to call Brad my friend, and I’m happy to endorse his candidacy for Wisconsin Attorney General.”
Please see video of the press conference with Governor Thompson in the link below:
In response to Rand Paul’s letter asking whether “the President has the power to authorize lethal force, such as a drone strike, against a U.S. citizen on U.S. soil, and without trial,” we now have an answer. Attorney General Holder responds, in a word “Yes.” Of course, it is caveated with ‘extraordinary circumstances’ and ‘necessity’ but as Mike Krieger so subtly summarizes: “the military can assassinate U.S. citizens on U.S. soil.” As NBC reports, the letter from Holder surfaced just as the Senate Intelligence Committee was voting 12-3 to approve White House counter-terrorism adviser John Brennan to be CIA director. The vote came after the White House agreed to share additional classified memos on targeted drone strikes against U.S. citizens overseas. As Rand Paul commented, “this is more than frightening… it is an affront to the Constitutional due process rights of all Americans.”
