Fast & Furious update: Holder’s deputy CoS briefed in December 2010.
There’s been a lot of commentary, obviously, about the information found in the latest Department of Justice Friday afternoon email dump with regards to the administration’s catastrophic Operation Fast & Furious. For those who need a reminder, OF&F was a program by which political appointees in the Obama administration ignored federal rules and basic common sense in order to facilitate the illegal resale of firearms | Read More »
AG Eric Holder calls Operation Fast & Furious ‘Reckless…’
The Obama administration – in the form of Attorney General Eric Holder – admitted today in Congressional testimony that Operation Fast & Furious program was ‘reckless,’ and will likely end up getting even more people killed. Rep. Ted Poe, R-TX: Would you agree that this operation was reckless? It was a reckless operation on the part of the United States? Attorney General Eric Holder: I | Read More »
Tech at Night: Attacks on AT&T/T-Mobile attack federalism; Hutchison, Walden, and Heller target Obama power grabs
Wireless competition continues to grow, as Cricket edges closer to 4G LTE. I’m losing track of how many 4G providers we’re starting to rack up. So yes, the people who tell you smaller and regional carriers are not an acceptable substitute for national carriers? They’re selling you something. That something is an attack on federalism via the Sprint/Soros/Obama/Holder attack on AT&T and the rights of | Read More »

Judiciary Chair Lamar Smith requests Special Counsel on possible Eric Holder perjury.
But that’s a rather dry title, don’t you think? I much prefer BOOM goes the dynamite on Operation Fast & Furious. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, was sending a letter to President Obama on Tuesday arguing that Holder cannot investigate himself, and requesting the president instruct the Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel. The question is whether Holder committed perjury during | Read More »
Eric Holder caught in lie about when he knew about Fast & Furious.
Permit me to summarize this CBS video on Operation Fast & Furious*: Eric Holder: I only heard about Operation Fast & Furious after it blew up in 2011! CBS: Here’s a list of memos that shows that you were briefed on Operation Fast & Furious, starting in July. Eric Holder: Oh. That Operation Fast & Furious. Yeah. Um. I, err, misspoke . Didn’t know the | Read More »
Is The Obama Administration Aiding & Abetting In The Murder Of Mexico?
Nearly a year ago, it was interesting to be attacked as Neo-Cons after stating what seemed to be obvious then and, unfortunately, is becoming more obvious by the day regarding the chaos in Mexico. Here was the statement and the resultant question: Like it or Not: Mexico is America’s Next Afghanistan With the exception of, perhaps, Texas governor Rick Perry, no public official wants to publicly | Read More »
Darrell Issa calls for special prosecutor on Fast & Furious.
UPDATE: Carol Greenberg of Conservative Outlooks – who was on the original call – reported that Issa did not quite call for a special prosecutor. This may be a nuance issue on Issa’s part: I was not able to participate in this particular call myself, so I couldn’t say authoritatively. Yes, my brothers and sisters: it’s that magical time in an administration where the old | Read More »
Operation Fast & Furious… Rocket Launchers?
You’re going to see the below quoted text a lot, because it’s an excellent summation of the problem that we’re having with the Obama administration’s catastrophically incompetent Fast & Furious disaster*: Let’s review: When we first learned about Fast and Furious, the news was that a number of assault rifles had been sold to straw purchasers. Soon, we learned that the number was approximately 2,500 | Read More »
Fast & Furious coverup in Arizona.
(H/T: Hot Air) I believe that the quasi-pop reference here is “BOOM goes the dynamite:” Congressional investigators tell CBS News there’s evidence the U.S. Attorney’s office in Arizona sought to cover up a link between their controversial gunwalking operation known as “Fast and Furious” and the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Executive background summary, for those who don’t remember/aren’t following: Operation Fast & | Read More »

Rick Perry runs for President after serving a long term as the governor of Texas. Texas shares over ½ of the US-Mexican Border with our neighbors to the South. Texas has benefitted from a generally positive historical relationship Mexican migratory workers and has seen some of the best benefits that immigration can offer the United States.

DEA now linked to Operation Fast & Furious.
It would appear that the DEA does not want to be the fall guy in Operation Fast & Furious*, either: DEA head Michele M. Leonhart admitted in a letter to Senator Grassley (Judiciary) and Rep. Issa (Oversight) that her organization was in fact involved in the investigation, and provided support for it. This is a significant admission by Ms. Leonhart, given that (as Bob Owens** | Read More »
The Great Fast & Furious… Fast & Furious Data-Dump.
The fact that the sordid details about Operation Fast & Furious (short edition: the federal government allowed guns to be illegally resold to Mexican narco-terrorists, who then proceeded to murder people with them) are all breaking during the debt ceiling situation is either the absolute best or the absolute worst luck for the Obama administration. On the one hand, the administration is not getting hammered | Read More »
Fast & Furious update: BATFE emails show stonewalling.
(Via The Sundries Shack) Let me summarize this LA Times article: Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered in December 2010 by Mexican narco-terrorists.

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 »
