Holder not the first Obama appointee to trample First Amendment

We should be asking ourselves why so much information is kept secret.

Holder isn't the first Obama appointee to trample the First Amendment.

Holder obtained a search warrant for Rosen’s email, among other data, labeling the reporter a “criminal co-conspirator.”

The First Amendment is among the simplest in the Bill of Rights. One tenet in that amendment prohibits laws “abridging the freedom of speech.”

White House spokesman Jay Carney claimed Obama is "strong defender of the First Amendment."

Obama isn’t, evidenced not only by the Rosen scandal but also by the administration’s misinformation about the causes of an attack on the Special Mission Compound in Benghazi.

Offered a perfect opportunity to educate the world about the First Amendment, Obama opted to vilify a filmmaker and apologize to Muslims for an offense that had nothing to do with the U.S. Government.

Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did the same.

Politico said Holder could not provide “any more details” about the Rosen controversy.

IRS also trampled freedom of speech by targeting conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.
