The war between Gov. Rick Scott and AG Holder has heated up in the last few days. With everything that went on yesterday with Holder and Senate Hearings I decided to wait until today to post the latest information I’ve saved for all to read…if what the DOJ is doing this time around doesn’t frost your flakes nothing will…the arrogance and audacity from this administration is astounding once again.

First we’ll start with Florida’s Governor…this is via FN:



The Justice Department set the stage Monday to sue Florida over its effort to purge the voter rolls of non-U.S. citizens — just hours after Gov. Rick Scott announced that his administration was filing suit against the federal government in connection with the same initiative.

Both moves marked the latest in a volley of accusations and legal maneuvers between Florida and the federal government over the state’s controversial effort to check the citizenship of voters.

Florida’s suit was filed against the Department of Homeland Security. The state claimed Monday that the federal government was denying access to a database that would allow it to verify the citizenship of registered voters.

But later in the day, a five-page letter was released from the Justice Department warning Florida Secretary of State Ken Detzner that it has “authorized the initiation of an enforcement action against Florida in federal court” over the purging of voter registration rolls. That means the department is going to start taking the steps to sue Florida.

The letter from Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez said, “it appears that the State of Florida is unwilling to conform its behavior to the requirements of federal law.”

The Justice Department earlier this month told the state to suspend the effort, claiming Florida was violating federal laws in its effort to find and remove ineligible voters — and teeing up Monday’s letter.

But Scott’s administration said Monday that it is the federal government that is skirting the law — by denying Florida access to its database.

“For nearly a year, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has failed to meet its legal obligation to provide us the information necessary to identify and remove ineligible voters from Florida’s voter rolls,” Detzner said in a statement. “We can’t let the federal government delay our efforts to uphold the integrity of Florida elections any longer.”

In an interview with Fox News on Monday, Scott also defended the initiative. He denied that the purge could unfairly target Latino residents, and he said he’s just trying to fairly enforce the law.

“We need to have fair elections in our state. I want to make sure that when we have elections … not one person’s vote gets diluted by somebody that doesn’t have the right to vote,” Scott told Fox News. “We’re doing the right thing. … We have people that are voting illegally in our races — that’s not right.”

Florida last year began looking for non-U.S. citizens on the voter rolls. A comparison of driver’s license records with voter registration records turned up as many as 182,000 registered voters who may not be U.S. citizens.

State officials have been seeking access to a federal immigration database to verify the matches. That request has been turned down by the Department of Homeland Security, though so far the state has given a smaller list of more than 2,600 names to local election supervisors.

Then we have this from Obama’s right arm, Eric Holder. This is via TDC:

WASHINGTON — Attorney General Eric Holder defended his department’s challenges to state’s voter ID laws on Monday, alleging that “those on all sides of this debate have acknowledged that in-person voting fraud is uncommon.”

Holder spoke at the League of Women Voters conference where he challenged those who believe that “easing registration hurdles will only lead to voter fraud.”

“Making voter registration easier is, simply, not likely by itself to make our election more susceptible to fraud. Indeed, those on all sides of this debate have acknowledged that in-person voting fraud is uncommon,” Holder said. “We must be honest about this, and we must recognize that our ability to ensure the strength and the integrity of our election systems — and to advance the reforms necessary to achieve this — depends on whether the American people are informed, engaged and willing to demand common sense solutions that make voting more accessible.”

The Department of Justice has challenged voter ID laws in states like South Carolina and Texas, which require voters to show government identification before they cast a ballot in an election. Republicans have been supportive of these laws as a way to crack down on voter fraud, while Holder says that the laws would “place an unfair burden on non-white voters.”

We all know why the DOJ has sued state after state…but the big question is: Who Will Win this War, ‘WE the PEOPLE‘, or the ‘ENEMY WITHIN‘?

  1. bigtimer,
    We the people will win this war, exactly what can the Feds do anyway, everystate should thumb their noses at the Feds when the need arises and not back down, Holder has too much on his plate right now to start stirring up anything else.

    • I tend to agree with you ga steve. Heck, we all know at this stage of the game Holder is skating on thin ice…so is Dear Leader, he’s sinking more and more each day.

      The states are obeying the laws, doing what should be done that the feds don’t want done all because they can’t get away with as much voting fraud as they used to in the past…the only criminals I see so far are in this administration.

      There will be a special place in hell for them at the end of the day.

  3. Let me be very, very very very, very clear Eric “my people” Holder….

    you are a liar…..that’s right you piece-of-shit….you are a liar….

    Voter fraud is absolutely your intent and that’s the way you plan on trying to steal this election and keep your sorry-ass $200,000 a year job you son-of-a-bitch….

    I am looking forward to Rick Scott mopping your sorry-ass all over the floor…..

    Eric “ratface” Holder is a disgrace to the office to which
    he was appointed. From the beginning, “my people”, black
    panthers, immigration, voter id etc., he has continually
    worked against the American people. He will lose. America
    will survive this ferret face and as soon as the transition
    team is in place, all lawsuits will be dropped. I hope then
    that perjury charges will be filed against this racist, vile
    pretender and that the term “Department of Justice ” will
    be just that.

        Thanks Big,

        I didn’t mean to omit Brian Terry’s family.
        This is a disgraceful episode in America’s
        history that will forever paint the Obama
        regime as evil and corrupt. Holder should
        be removed from office and indicted.

  11. Here is an excerpt from a letter from the National Association for Gun Rights forwarded by Rand Paul via email. It gets dirtier and dirtier.

    For months, I’ve heard whispers that the Obama Administration is carefully crafting an anti-gun bill behind the scenes and secretly working Capitol Hill to get the votes they need to RAM their pet legislation into law.

    And to make matters worse, I’m afraid President Obama believes this fight could be the KEY to securing his reelection!</b?

        http://nation.foxnews.com/sen-.....esignation

        I consider what Hatch is doing now as half-baked, I remember his speech on the Senate Floor regarding other senators on our side of the aisle why they should vote to confirm the filthy bastid in the first place…it was infuriating!

        (0)
        • Paul Bonnichsen says:

          BT,

          You know as well as I, Hatch originally supported Holder because America was so caught up in “Hope and Change” and Hatch thought it would be to his advantage to show support for Holder… after all, no support of Holder and Hatch might have been called a racist. Now that the tide has changed, Hatch once again thinks of nothing but future votes so he sticks his finger in the air like John Worthless McCain always did and calls for Holder’s resignation.

          (0)
          • Exactly….it really is infuriating, and they plan on us not knowing this in the real world, problem is…the majority don’t know what we’re talking about.

          • Paul Bonnichsen says:

            You’re right BT, the majority of people go to the polls and vote candidates into office not knowing a damn thing about them. As I stated a couple of weeks ago, our new Miss America did not know who the Vice President was.

            I think I’m starting to agree with many people… if you are on welfare and to damn stupid or lazy to work, you can not vote. I know this is only wishful thinking.

            (0)
          • Oh yeah…it’s wishful thinking indeed, heck Paul…look at the talking heads in the msm guiding they along the way with their talking points 24/7…it’s despicable to say the least.

            We have to outnumber them and educate the blind who may take off the blinders and see. – No matter what…we will fight the good fight until we win…and win we will come Nov.

            ….In a LANDSLIDE!

  16. If I was the governor of Florida, I’d tell Holder to “stick it up his a$$” and say we ARE going to purge the polls of illegal voters And I’d like to see the DOJ force us to do otherwise.

    The states need to stand up rigidly against the bastards in DC,…They have the legal and soverign rights to do so.

  17. You know who really hates Voter ID? People with outstanding warrants. Who might they be?

    • Not sure where you’re going with this…but if some of it is where I deduct from your question…why in the world would they vote in the first place?

      I’m probably off by what you mean….fill me in. 😉

      (0)
      • Holder says that Voter ID discriminates against “nonwhites”. Why? Because they have outstanding arrest warrants and are afraid to reveal their identity to The Man. It’s also why the disenfranchisement of felons “discriminates” against “nonwhites”.
