The Obama administration has known all along—through all of the histrionics about damaged hard drives and whatever else—that Lois Lerner’s email is backed up, just like any other government email. Obama administration attorneys have dismissed this system as too onerous to search.

Here is today’s statement from Judicial Watch.

It is abundantly clear that Judge Emmet G. Sullivan smells a big rat. It sounds very much as if he’s going to, ahem, motivate them to search this system anyway, however “onerous” the task.

Perhaps this is finally a bridge too far for this band of thugs that has hijacked the executive branch of the United States government. Perhaps this is finally enough to overcome the terrible obstacles of a ceaselessly sycophantic press corps and a (shrinking, but still depressingly large) gaggle of groupies who seem to occupy themselves entirely with making eyes at our esteemed president and shrieking “racist” at anyone who dares not do the same.

What gall. What contempt for the American people.

Do we finally have a light so bright, there shall be no scurrying for the shadows?

We need a productive and fruitful conversation on the increasing militarization of police forces.

We need a productive and fruitful conversation on police forces and race.

We can accomplish none of the above without first stopping a city of more than 20,000 people from tearing itself to pieces.

President Obama, this is sustained civil unrest on American soil. Amnesty International is there, for goodness sake. You don’t send your thug attorney general to “investigate.” You use all of the power of your position to stop the violence. That is not issuing a statement. That is not coming in for a few “high level meetings” before jetting back to Martha’s Vineyard.

How about a heartfelt address to the nation, urging your commitment to progress but also insisting that Americans stop fighting Americans?

It’s as if you either don’t realize how serious this is, or you’re measuring your responses against political consequences. But this is no time for such calculation. We could wake up to read that 50 people died overnight in an all-out riot. We could wake up to ten city blocks burning out of control.

Everyone must stop. There is no other next step.

Mr. President, lead.

As I type, the latest armed conflict in Israel is one month old. That ostensibly intelligent people suppose that this conflict is morally ambiguous, or even otherwise difficult to understand in any way, infuriates me. I believe this perceived ambiguity about the unambiguous has developed largely because our esteemed president has fostered it. Israel is [...]

Citing ongoing crises in the Middle East and Ukraine, as well as the continued fragility of the U.S. economy, President Obama today announced that he and his family would vacation for one week at Camp David next month, rather than more than two weeks at Martha’s Vineyard. “After much reflection, I have concluded that I’m [...]
