How the NRA Helped ObamaCare
It’s tough to accuse the National Rifle Association of being left-wing, but events on Thursday highlight just how useless the organization can be to the conservative movement at large. On the day that the Supreme Court found the most odious provisions of the Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare – constitutional, the House of Representatives took the historic step of holding a sitting attorney general in | Read More »
Reminder: the NRA will score Holder contempt vote.
I’m not sure why I missed this at the time – the letter’s dated June 20th – but it’s official: “the NRA will consider this vote in [their] candidate evaluations.” That doesn’t guarantee a contempt charge passing the House, but only because a contempt charge was already guaranteed. For all the loose and charged rhetoric going around, if Speaker Boehner wasn’t going to let Oversight | Read More »
Jay Carney pretty much flubs everything about Operation Fast & Furious.
This is going to be a very visual post, and, as usual, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney provides little if any actual semantic content, so I will simply summarize each video. First off, we have the standard obfuscation:
Meet Ronald C Machen, US Attorney for the District of Columbia.
He hates his life – or at least, he’s about to hate his life. You see, if Congress votes today to hold US Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress today for Holder’s stonewalling on providing documents on the botched Operation Fast & Furious botched gunrunning scandal* then Mr. Machen is apparently the lucky individual who gets to bring charges up for a | Read More »
It’s On: Holder tries to play Issa on Fast and Furious, will be subject of contempt vote tomorrow
Republican members of the House Oversight and Senate Judiciary Committees have been turning up the heat on Attorney General Eric Holder over his obstructive and misleading testimony about Fast and Furious, the operation in which the ATF coerced American gun dealers into selling firearms to Mexican cartels, and then allowed them to “walk” across our southern border (all without a whisper to the Mexican government). After being | Read More »

New Ad: Answers and Accountability
Above is a new ad from American Future Fund calling for the President to give the American people answers and to hold people accountable in the still ongoing Fast & Furious scandal. It’s time. As Duane Lester at LibertyNews notes, you can also sign a petition at Grassfire in support of those members of Congress who are calling for Eric Holder to resign. The stonewalling | Read More »
Sen. Cornyn to A.G. Holder: ‘Resign Your Office’ over Fast and Furious
Attorney General Eric Holder appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday morning to answer questions about several ongoing issues. These include the federal government’s lawsuit against Florida to prevent the state from culling its voter rolls of noncitizens and others who legally don’t belong, as well as the ongoing investigation (led in part by a Holder appointee and former Obama donor) into a recent spate | Read More »
The 911 Call and 80+ Members of Congress
As most of you know, my family was swatted on May 27, 2012. The police, at the time, told me they were responding to a 911 call about an accidental shooting. I now have the 911 call. It turns out that the call was not about an accidental shooting. The caller said I had shot my wife, she was dead on the floor in front | Read More »
Holder Stumbles Under Questioning About David Alexrod
Rep. Randy Forbes (R-VA) asked some tough questions today at a hearing of the House Judiciary Committee of Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder. Holder could not directly answer questions about the nature of Obama Senior Advisor David Alexrod’s push to politically influence the Justice Department in 2009. Holder said this in response to a question about Axelrod, “there’s a political dimension to the job I have | Read More »
Saxby Chambliss Does the Right Thing, Re: SWATting
I must admit, I’m happy my state has two Republican Senators, Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson. It’s certainly better than the alternative, whether one or two Democrats. However, there are so many times that I wish they’d give us conservatives more than what they’d do. So, for once, I am happy to see one of my guys taking the lead on an issue, especially one | Read More »
DOJ Not Even Pretending to be Nonpartisan Anymore
I’d read something about this several days ago, but for some reason, I decided not to post on it. Now, it’s surfaced again. The Obama Justice Department isn’t even trying to appear to be non-partisan anymore (did they ever try in the first place, though?). Eric Holder is doing his best to scare black pastors into encouraging their congregations to vote for Obama using the | Read More »
Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and its Shameless Cover-Up
IMAGINE A GOVERNMENT agency designed for the specific purpose of investigating and preventing the unlawful use, manufacture, and possession of firearms. Now imagine this agency engaging in an operation that not only goes against that purpose, but actually seeks to accomplish the opposite, by actively encouraging the sale of firearms to people whose ties to organized crime and gun violence are well known– and that | Read More »
Arizona Gets its Day in Court
Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution (the Guarantee Clause) directs the federal government to guarantee the states protection from invasion. Yet, in the case of Arizona, which has been disproportionately effected by the invasion of illegal aliens and drug cartels, the Obama administration has guaranteed them nothing but lawsuits. In April 2010, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed SB 1070, a bill designed to curb | Read More »
