Eric Holder. His $$ background 2011. Look carefully.
Eric Holder.
For many of you, that name stands out. Not only because of his position in the United States, but because of the very questionable operations he created while in office.
For those that do not know the name, lets just briefly cover his career.

----------------------------------------------------------
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,[2] 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.

Now lets get to the good stuff.

Here is a fast update for anyone that is not familiar with the 'Fast and Furious' gun running program that was under the direction of Eric Holder.

State Department Appoints Covington’s Johnson to Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal

2/7/2012

WASHINGTON, DC, February 7, 2012 — The U.S. Department of State has appointed O. Thomas Johnson Jr., a long-time partner and senior counsel in Covington & Burling’s global arbitration practice, to the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal in The Hague, effective April 1st.

The Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal was established in January 1981 to resolve existing disputes between the two countries and their nationals in the aftermath of the U.S. Embassy hostage crisis in Tehran. It is comprised of nine judges: three appointed by Iran, three by the U.S. and three by the party-appointed members acting jointly or, in absence of agreement, by an appointing authority.

At Covington, Mr. Johnson’s practice has focused on international boundary disputes, international investment disputes and international commercial arbitrations. In his boundaries practice, Mr. Johnson has advised governments, oil companies, and other interested parties concerning actual and potential boundary disputes. He represented Eritrea in proceedings before a special tribunal in The Hague that resolved its land-boundary dispute with Ethiopia. In international investment disputes, Mr. Johnson has represented claimants in arbitrations before the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal and in arbitrations conducted under the rules of the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes, the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law.

Mr. Johnson will leave Covington effective March 31st in order to assume his duties in The Hague. He is an adjunct professor at the Columbia Law School, where he teaches a course on international investment law, and until recently, served by U.S. Presidential appointment on the ICSID Panel of Arbitrators.

Covington is widely recognized as a leading international arbitration law firm with rankings in GAR30, Chambers Global, Legal 500 UK, Legal 500 US and PLC.

You will also find American Task Force Argentina. Now this gets really messy. You see, American Task Force Argentina also hired Raben Group, and what is one of the pet projects of Raben Group? Easy.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a bipartisan, nationwide coalition of more than 500 mayors who promote common-sense policies to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and other prohibited purchasers.

Now this rabbit hole goes deep. Really deep. And it gets more and more dirty the further down you go.

I know this is a long post, and if you have made it this far, I applaud you. This information is easy to obtain, and making the connections even more simple once you start looking. One would ask, 'Then why are we not seeing this on every news broadcast? This is corruption in full view!'

The reason is simple. As you look, the National Association of Broadcasters are in on it. Also in plain view.

So when you march in to cast your vote. Think about all the things you dont see. Think of how you, your life, you children's lives are going to be in the next 10 years;( with corrupt political figures that you support, and argue for.) will be. Obama put holder in office. Every candidate that the media calls 'Electable' is just another word for 'Corruptible' and 'For sale' So when you cast your vote for the so called 'Electable' remember one thing. You enabled the country to be the way it is. And this is all the way down to your local Government.

So unless you stand behind someone that is 'Unelectable' (uncorruptible) you are the element of the mess people live in.



Ron Paul 2012 is your only hope. Make a real change before it is too late.

from your pov, what is the % of the 'Unelectable' people in office today in the USA?
ty
We get the powers over us that we've earned collectively. Humanity, as a whole, is self-interested, shallow, ignorant, violent and immoral; small wonder, therefore, that our leaders (secret or otherwise) reflect that. You want better leaders, become better people.

Some of it is just to funny. It's been going on like this for the longest time. I believe Kennedy was the LAST elected president. The rest are just put in there as a puppet. I believe Kennedy wasn't going to do something about UFOs, and that's why he was killed. I believe he decided to go against the "powers that be" and let it all out. That's why they killed him.

State Department Appoints Covington’s Johnson to Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal

2/7/2012

WASHINGTON, DC, February 7, 2012 — The U.S. Department of State has appointed O. Thomas Johnson Jr., a long-time partner and senior counsel in Covington & Burling’s global arbitration practice, to the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal in The Hague, effective April 1st.

The Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal was established in January 1981 to resolve existing disputes between the two countries and their nationals in the aftermath of the U.S. Embassy hostage crisis in Tehran. It is comprised of nine judges: three appointed by Iran, three by the U.S. and three by the party-appointed members acting jointly or, in absence of agreement, by an appointing authority.

At Covington, Mr. Johnson’s practice has focused on international boundary disputes, international investment disputes and international commercial arbitrations. In his boundaries practice, Mr. Johnson has advised governments, oil companies, and other interested parties concerning actual and potential boundary disputes. He represented Eritrea in proceedings before a special tribunal in The Hague that resolved its land-boundary dispute with Ethiopia. In international investment disputes, Mr. Johnson has represented claimants in arbitrations before the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal and in arbitrations conducted under the rules of the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes, the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law.

Mr. Johnson will leave Covington effective March 31st in order to assume his duties in The Hague. He is an adjunct professor at the Columbia Law School, where he teaches a course on international investment law, and until recently, served by U.S. Presidential appointment on the ICSID Panel of Arbitrators.

-----------------------------------------------------------
If you sort through this list. You will notice many Clients with $0 money next to their name. Like Xe Services for example. AKA: Blackwater. Now for high profile clients like Xe and National Association of Broadcasters, and CBS, and BP Oil being on the list of clients for this law firm is clearly heavy hitters. But what is interesting is when you look at the Industry category.

If you look close, you will see a 'client' of Flyington Freighters Pvt. And when you look at this client even more closely. You see that it is a shadow. [link to en.wikipedia.org]


You will also find American Task Force Argentina. Now this gets really messy. You see, American Task Force Argentina also hired Raben Group, and what is one of the pet projects of Raben Group? Easy.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns is a bipartisan, nationwide coalition of more than 500 mayors who promote common-sense policies to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and other prohibited purchasers.

Now this rabbit hole goes deep. Really deep. And it gets more and more dirty the further down you go.

I know this is a long post, and if you have made it this far, I applaud you. This information is easy to obtain, and making the connections even more simple once you start looking. One would ask, 'Then why are we not seeing this on every news broadcast? This is corruption in full view!'

The reason is simple. As you look, the National Association of Broadcasters are in on it. Also in plain view.

So when you march in to cast your vote. Think about all the things you dont see. Think of how you, your life, you children's lives are going to be in the next 10 years;( with corrupt political figures that you support, and argue for.) will be. Obama put holder in office. Every candidate that the media calls 'Electable' is just another word for 'Corruptible' and 'For sale' So when you cast your vote for the so called 'Electable' remember one thing. You enabled the country to be the way it is. And this is all the way down to your local Government.

So unless you stand behind someone that is 'Unelectable' (uncorruptible) you are the element of the mess people live in.



Ron Paul 2012 is your only hope. Make a real change before it is too late.

I wanted to address some of the replies on this posting. So here it goes.



OP
from your pov, what is the % of the 'Unelectable' people in office today in the USA?
ty
 Quoting: theSearchingJones

That is a really hard one to say. Because of how many are actually working for lobbyist in Washington the % scale is so low it's not even funny. But, hey. It is America. Anyone can run for any office. So where are all the average down to earth people out there that are 'unelectable'. If a cat jumping in to a box and it falling over can get over 8 million views, I think with a little attitude, a good group of nobody's can turn into somebodies that clean out the ratbags that have infested our nations Govt.


Some of it is just to funny. It's been going on like this for the longest time. I believe Kennedy was the LAST elected president. The rest are just put in there as a puppet. I believe Kennedy wasn't going to do something about UFOs, and that's why he was killed. I believe he decided to go against the "powers that be" and let it all out. That's why they killed him.
 Quoting: GeekOfTheWeek


You are bang on!. He was the last elected prez. And with the fact that the CIA was working with all of the Mobsters the Kennedy was trying to get rid of, TPTB took the Kennedys out of the picture, then decided to never let another man in that office they could not control 100%



dude give it up. you can't make money in alternative media unless you're SRA kid or monarch. you will end up broke and in someones camper, if not already.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10838374

Now this snarky little comment is interesting. For a person that went to great length to really hide who they really are your comment here not only shows your stupidity, but also shows that you are truly 100% a coward. So that being said, let me school you boy.
Been in Alternative Media for 20 years, owned and operated my own 50k watt radio station. With employees. Been to the joke National Association of Broadcasters big events more times then I would like to admit to. There is lots more, but I have made my point. You are an idiot, and I am only leaving your stupid comment up so people can see that short bus riders like yourself are also a infection on the United States.

For Saved, Chip and the AC.

Here is what will happen. Right now they are talking about holding Holder in contempt for skewing the facts on F&F. There will be alot of drum banging, and chanting for his head, but its all just posturing. He will slip out of the chair he is in with a speech of "I feel it is important for the role to move forward without any distraction from other legal events, so I am stepping down so I can,,, blah blah blah" and he will just trot away untouched. We know it.

This piece certainly explains and ties in with why INTERPOL was given immunity by 0bsama the british crown agent, why he established the "council of governors", why he was first as so-called [p]resident to "chair the UN", signed NDAA, consolidated and took over tobacco industry, GM, health-kare, energy, bailed out banks as well as the "real estate" debacle that has been largely ignored.
All done in the game of the corporation established by the crown/vatican to satisfy their ICC of the NWO (OWNed backwards folks, literally). It also explains why we've NEVER seen one of them arrested (nor will we ever)for corruption, extortion, treason, money laundering, drug running, murder, tax evasion etc. They're simply following the historical playbook humanity has always been deceived and enslaved with for centuries--the law of nations.

Corruption/lawlessness = business as usual for the beast

Yes. It is all part of the shell game that they control, and make the rules for. And just think. It is about to get worse. I would love to see RP in the Whitehouse. What he would do and say and how he would confront what is going on. But, I am not naive. I know the election process is a 75% fixed game. And the media sways and controls the other 15% while the last 10% still fight for freedom, Life, liberty and are desperately in pursuit of happiness.
