Fast & Furious Update: William Hoover claims ‘exit strategy’ meeting.
Short version of Fast & Furious, for those who came in late: the federal government decided to try to fight the spread of illegal weapons sales among Mexican narco-terrorist gangs by… encouraging and facilitating the sale of illegal weapons to Mexican narco-terrorist gangs. No, it did not end well: the guns that were illegally resold often got lost track of, right up to the point | Read More »
Eric Holder’s Banana Republic Style Attack on Rupert Murdoch and News Corp
Rupert and James Murdoch were a great tag team yesterday before the Parliamentary inquiry. In fact, I dare say the pie attack coupled with Mrs. Murdoch’s response lent sympathy toward the Murdoch clan and ultimately helped Rupert Murdoch take the upper hand in the hearings. But in this country, Media Matters, the left in general, and the Obama Administration are savoring the possible destruction of | Read More »
Fast and Furious update: Ken Melson’s secret testimony.
The sound that you’re hearing is the muttered “Uh-oh” of a plethora of staffers at the Justice Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, & Explosives. Of particular interest is the letter that Oversight Chair Darrell Issa and Judiciary Ranking Member (for now) Chuck Grassley sent to Attorney General (for now) Eric Holder regarding Melson’s testimony… but we’ll get that in a moment. For | Read More »
14 more states file anti-Obamacare amicus brief.
(I decided to crosspost this after all) This one will be for Seven-Sky v. Holder, which is scheduled for oral argument in September. The amicus brief will be on the individual mandate; more specifically, that the individual mandate is unconstitutional. I mostly draw this to people’s attention because of the following list: Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, Maine*, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, | Read More »
Operation Gun Walker: An Act of War Against Mexico With One American Murdered Already
As the sun is rising this morning, it appears more and more that the Obama Administration committed an actual, factual act of war against Mexico through sheer incompetence that has left at least one American border patrol agent murdered. What if I told you that the Obama Administration’s Justice Department authorized the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (the “ATF”) to rig gun background | Read More »

Tech at Night: Net Neutrality, Copyright, Patent, Security
Hello! There’s no one clear theme of things to discuss tonight. It’s a diverse list of topics, so let’s just muddle on through and see what’s going on. We’ve got some good news from what the Republicans in Washington are going. On the Senate side, the side we haven’t heard nearly as much about thanks to the Obama-Reid majority there, conservative Republicans are taking key | Read More »

Tech at Night: Copyright, COICA, Google, Net Neturality, Internet Kill Switch
On Monday I did the first half of my catchup work. Now we’ll do the second half. And one of the big issues coming up is copyright. Over the last thirty years, copyright in America has been radically reformed. While traditionally it worked as patents still do work, as a temporary grant of monopoly enforceable in civil courts, we’ve gradually moved them into the realm | Read More »

Wikileaks and the Limits of Law and Patience
The ongoing de facto declassification of hundreds of thousands of formerly secret documents by Wikileaks and it’s leader, the androgynous accused sex offender Julian Assange, has received a lot of attention in the past weeks. After being generally unconcerned when military secrets were revealed in the first document dump which was accompanied by the launch of the website Collateral Murder the press and the Administration | Read More »
Eric Holder: Man on a Mission
With a federal jury finding a terrorist not guilty of all but one charge, with a Somali teenager arrested for trying to blow up Americans at a Christmas Tree lighting ceremony, with the wikileaks debacle, and with more and more to preoccupy the Attorney General of the United States, you’d think Eric Holder would be holed up in his office fighting the good fight. You | Read More »
Nationalizing King Samir Shabazz?
With the B-Cast’s latest data dump on Shabazz (who is pretty much the public, tattooed, hate-filled face of the New Black Panther party at this moment) it’s no longer really a question of if candidates are going to be bringing his case up as it is when candidates are going to be bringing his case up as a campaign issue. Disclaimer: I have not been | Read More »
Eric Holder protects would-be race genocidist.
My colleague haystack already went off on this King Samir Shabazz, but there’s no way that I let this pass without comment: Let me put this in some perspective for you, Attorney General Eric Holder. I happen to be the father of one of these white babies that this would-be race warrior advocates killing. Where I come from – which is to say, planet Earth | Read More »
Judiciary Committee Republicans: Do your job, Holder.
Done with the White House non-response to the claims that Joe Sestak (who recently beat out Obama-endorsed Specter in the Pennsylvania Senate primary) received a job offer from the White House, all seven Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have stepped up to demand a proper investigation from AG Holder. Via Jake Tapper: “If such things happened they would constitute a serious breach of the law,” | Read More »
Unprecedented: Calderon Slams US From House Floor. Receives Standing Ovation
Unprecedented, indeed. But, not surprising, given that our own President has done nothing but the same. I’m wondering if Calderon at least read the Arizona bill first, before demonizing an American state. That would actually be unprecedented, amongst our alleged leaders, at least. President Obama, for once, forewent bowing. Not to worry, though! The Democrats in Congress picked up his slack and went one further. | Read More »
