In a shocking new video exclusive to Breitbart.com, James O┬'Keefe┬'s Project Veritas demonstrates to the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder, just why he should be concerned about lack of voter ID laws ┬-- by walking into Holder┬'s voting precinct and showing the world that anyone can obtain Eric Holder┬'s ballot. Literally.
"you're not Eric Holder! You have ethics... and a chin"

I'm waiting for a response from Holder. Given his recent track record, his response is predicated on the videographer's race, as he doesn't want to prosecute 'his people'. Regardless, let's see how he injects race into it.
The Obama administration is responding to the recent report that shows a federal agency spent more that $800,000 on a lavish conference near Las Vegas by putting some of the blame on the Bush administration.
┬"At least we have taken, bold, swift forceful action to hold those responsible accountable and put in place protections to make sure this never happened again,┬" a White House official told Fox News. Since when is allowing something to languish for 11 months before the public finds out about it and then finally doing somethign about it called "bold, swift forceful action"?
The Inspector General Office┬'s report last week about the 2010 General Services Administration conference outside of Las Vegas indicates the Obama administration knew about the trip since May 2010. The report was followed by a release of videos.
One video shows an employee performing in the fake music video, which is laced with jokes and references that only federal employees are likely to get.
In the lyrics, the employee sings: "Donate my vacation, love to the nation, I'll never be under OIG investigation."
The report found the Public Buildings Service, part of the General Services Administration, spent more than $840,000 on the conference.
Two House committees now are probing the agency. One of those, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, posted the video of the GSA employees online.
Committee Chairman Darrell Issa said a briefing Thursday by the Office of the Inspector General shows General Services Administrator Martha Johnson and Steven Leeds, senior counselor to the administrator, were told in May 2011 about the investigation of the conference. They resigned Monday.
The administration also argued Friday night that the cost of the Western Regional Conference increased sharply under the Bush White House -- from $93,000 in 2004 to $323,855 in 2006 to $655,025 in 2008, then $840,616 in 2010, or just 28 percent under Obama. Because the Obama administration was watching their budget so closely?
However, on Saturday morning Emily Baker, a former GSA regional administrator for President Bush, suggested to Fox News that the Obama administration is spinning the numbers.
"When they're talking about that it sounds good to say it went up over 100 percent," she said. "It went up to about $250,000 dollars. I mean it's a lot but when you start small it's easy to say it increased a lot."
Poor Barack Obama: he's not just running against the Tea Party and the muckety-mucks of the Supreme Court, but also against actual members of the world-wide one percent! A taste from a long article printed yesterday on the front page of the New York Times..
The two young men had woefully little in common: one was a wealthy Mormon from Michigan, the other a middle-class Jew from Israel.
Sure, if one looks only at nationality and family income. But both were very bright, hard working, goal-oriented, and comfortable being members of a minority in a majority world.
But in 1976, the lives of Mitt Romney ...whose real first name is actually, no kidding, Willard, was governor of Massachussetts and is currently the front-runner for president on the Publican ticket. He is the son of the former governor of Michigan, George Romney, who himself ran for president after saving American Motors from failure, though not permanently. Romney's foot is in an ideological bucket because of Romneycare, a state-level experiment that should have been a warning against Obamacare if anyone had been paying attention. Romney's charisma is best defined as soporific, which is probably why he is leading the Publican field... and Benjamin Netanyahu intersected, briefly but indelibly, in the 16th-floor offices of the Boston Consulting Group, where both had been recruited as corporate advisers. At the most formative time of their careers, they sized each other up during the firm's weekly brainstorming sessions, absorbing the same profoundly analytical view of the world.
That shared experience decades ago led to a warm friendship, little known to outsiders, that is now rich with political intrigue.
Such emotionally loaded language! One gets the impression the New York Times journalist disapproves of such connections for some reason.
Mr. Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, is making the case for military action against Iran as Mr. Romney, the likely Republican presidential nominee, is attacking the B.O. regime for not supporting Mr. Netanyahu more robustly.
The relationship between Mr. Netanyahu and Mr. Romney -- nurtured over meals in Boston, New York and Jerusalem, strengthened by a network of mutual friends and heightened by their conservative ideologies -- has resulted in an unusually frank exchange of advice and insights on topics like politics, economics and the Middle East.
Remembering always that conservative ideology is to be read as a curse when used by the highly trained journalists of the New York Times.
Barack Obama is braced for a barrage of attacks from a political campaign group founded by former aides to President George W. Bush and backed with tens of millions of dollars in corporate funding. American Crossroads, the most powerful "Super PAC" (political action committee) aiming to oust the US president in November, is preparing a blitz of television attack advertisements in key battleground states across the country.
The group, which was created by Mr Bush's former chief strategist Karl Rove, can collect unlimited donations from US corporations thanks to a highly controversial Supreme Court ruling.
Several of these independent groups are poised to assist Mitt Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, with an onslaught against Mr Obama, whose record they denounce.
American Crossroads alone raised more than $50 million (┬31.5 million) last year and plans to spend up to $200 million (┬121 million) on the 2012 election.
Meanwhile the main Super PAC backing Mr Obama, Priorities USA Action, has raised just $6.5 million (┬4.1 million).
