Department of Justice Chaos

We live in interesting times.

Some claim that Obama is an incompetent boob who was in over his head the moment he finished taking the oath of office.  Others (myself included) are inclined to believe that he is very competent, indeed, and that overtly or not, his objective has been to foment and promote chaos in the country.

Chaos is the friend of revolutionaries.

One excellent way to effect chaos is to subvert the rule of law.  Obozo has used executive orders and regulatory schemes to do so (see the new policy on illegal alien enforcement and CO2 regs, respectively.)  At the same time, Eric Holder has been assiduously and aggressively converting the Department of Justice into a branch of the National Lawyers' Guild.

...the scope of the corruption is so large as to defy adequate descriptions, in a single column, of each abomination. The reality is that these Obama/Holder minions at DoJ are dangerous to the very heart of constitutional, republican (small 'r') government....

It's far, far worse than the Philly voter-intimidation case, much worse than Fast & Furious.  Holder is stacking the career-lawyer Justice ranks with far-left ideologues, doing so by violating long-established hiring policy.  

...Of 106 supposedly apolitical hires by the Obama/Holder Civil Rights Division, all 106 are demonstrably, irrefutably leftist activists. Again, these are for "career" slots for which no political bias is supposed to be used to hire them. Simple random distribution would assure than in a center-right country, at least a couple of dozen of these hires would be either right of center or at least apolitical -- but not a single one has been anything but a hard-left radical....

In other words, the Department has been permanently 'salted' with fellow-travelers (and I use that term deliberately.)

...Loretta King, while serving as the acting assistant attorney general for civil rights at the outset of the Obama administration, ordered the resumes of highly qualified applicants to be rejected only because they didn't have political or left-wing civil rights experience....

Lying has become the norm in public statements.  FOIA is a dead letter to Justice (!!!).

...Under Richard Nixon, John Mitchell was as corrupt as they come. But that was all for protecting political power. The Holder Justice Department is equally as corrupt, but in worse ways even than Mitchell. Holder's team is out for raw political power unmoored from the law, of course -- but also for hard-leftist ideological ends that undermine the entire tradition of American jurisprudence and legal practice. They are a menace, and they must be stopped...

Legal positivism is bad enough, and we've seen plenty from the time of the Warren Court through (roughly) the middle of GWBush's Administration.  

Blatant and deliberate undermining and "activist-ization" of the prosecutorial system is another thing entirely.  It is deliberate; it is planned; and it will be the cause of much strife, at the very least.
