Eric Holder To Receive ABA Award InAugust

Former Attorney General Eric Holder remains a controversial figure for civil libertarians and other groups after his tenure in the Clinton and Obama Administrations.  He is one of the principle authors of the Kill Listpolicy under which President Barack Obamaclaimed the right to kill any American without a charge or trial if he unilaterally determined that they are a national security risk.  Despite the view of some of us that Holder deserved to be fired over his abusive investigation of journalists, he will now be given the prestigious Thurgood Marshall Award from the ABA Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice on Aug. 4during the ABA Annual Meeting in Chicago.
The Thurgood Marshall Award honors contributions by members of the legal profession to the advancement of civil rights, civil liberties and human rights in the United States.  It is the inclusion of civil liberties and human rights that are troubling in this award.  Holder clearly did accomplish much on civil rights. However, the award brushes over his more controversial actions in these other areas.
Holders role in the Kill List policy, the targeting of journalists, and withholding information from Congress are among a variety of actions that remains deeply troubling for many.  Then there is Holders involvement in Clintons abuse of his pardon power in the infamous pardoning of Democratic donor Marc Rich as well as his own half brother.
Holders record is not a subject for celebration for many, but the ABA deemed him to be worthy of a distinction for his contribution to, among other things, civil liberties. Holders contributionscost civil liberties dearly in this country. If the ABA is to give him this award, it could at least spare civil libertarians and journalists the reference to civil liberties.
Did the ABA give extra points for gun running?

Michael Moore went on Bill Mahers HBO show and suggested that the U.S. military would side with progressives in a civil war against Donald Trump.  You can watch Moore make these comments on YouTube right here.  The very next day, Antifa thugs violently clashed with pro-Trump conservatives that had gathered for a prayer rally on the streets of Portland, Oregon.  Flash-bang grenades were thrown by Antifa activists, the police confiscated mace, clubs, gloves with reinforced knuckles, batons, knives and handgun clips, and many were injured and had to be taken to the hospital. 
 The violence was so dramatic that some are actually calling this the first skirmish in Americas next civil war.  Last week, a shocking poll found that 31 percent of all Americans believe that there will be a civil war in America within the next five years and that 59 percent of Americans believe that Donald Trumps opponents will resort to violence.  But after the events of this past weekend, we no longer have to wonder if civil unrest is coming to America.  Civil unrest is already here, and it is going to get much worse in the months ahead.
The next several months are being billed as a summer of rage.  Progressive leaders continue to insist that they are the majorityand that it is time for them to start acting like the majority.
Of course they arent talking about mobilizing voters and taking the country back at the polls in November.
Michael Moore certainly intends to be at the tip of the spear.
In fact, he also told Bill Maher that he plans to join a million other Americans to surround the United States Capitol to protest Donald Trumps nominee for the Supreme Court.
Of course we dont even know who the nominee will be yet.  There are rumblings that it could be Amy Coney Barrett, and if that is the case the left is  going to freak out then.
Chris Matthews of MSNBC is speaking in apocalyptic terms as well.  He says that this is a time to fight, and he is convinced that its gonna be almost like Spanish Civil War stuff
So I would say I think this is gonna be the fight of the century,he told MSNBC. I think the Democrats have to say no way. No one passes this line. I think its gonna be almost like Spanish Civil War stuff you watch!
Its time for Democrats to play Hardball,he added.   >Conveniently, they overlook the fact that the majority of citizens are sick of their tainted version of life!

This would be like the KKK giving him an award-it makes no sense.
