This was disseminated by Rush himself, on his radio show, aired approximately 5 minutes ago, so the link, is from his on-air show.

No doubt about it. Hussein Obama was looking to impose a new AWB -- one that would make not just buying, but owning any mag-fed firearm illegal.

Of course it was an attack on the 2A, when has anything the BATF don’t NOT been an attack on the 2A?

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/today.guest.html Rush stated this approximately 5 minutes ago, so the link/source is from his on-air show.

I'm sure millions of others heard him go to this story..

For those that are not aware, Ken Melson, the acting director of the ATF, suddenly went into an interview with congressional investigators on July 4, two days ahead of his scheduled interview with the inspector general about the operation known as "Fast and Furious".

It is suspected Melson is now a whistle-blower, possibly against Obamas's DOJ and other government agencies.

He was accompanied by a private attorney.

Of course it is...was a nice and tidy little “crisis to be taken advantaged of” until it blew up in the traitors’ faces.

There better be lots of these thugs going to jail over this one—Holder included.

Obama’s signature is on the 2009 stimulus bill that had specific wording to fund ATF PROJECT GunRunner $10,000,000.

The stimulus was written in part by the Apollo Alliance, which I think is part of the Soros, John Podesta , Tide foundation, Center for American Progress - progressive machine.

No way? Really?

So when CNN was running news reels of Mexican Cartels clearly using fully automatic Kalashnikoff’s that cost about $60 on the open market, the Administrations talking heads were lying when they claimed MOST of their weapons come from America?

I am TOTALLY shocked!

I just want to caution everyone. If people think this will get anywhere near the “Annointed One”, they are sadly mistaken. Many people will take lots of arrows and fall on their own sword before it touches Mr. Annointed. The best we can hope for is Eric Holder resigning in disgrace. Which would be a very good day for America.

Folks, check your local newspaper (either actual newspaper or online). If no mention, find out who their NEWS editor is (not Editorial Board, which is often a different person) and write them directly, asking why there are no reports about this Operation. Ask for a direct response.

The racist Mr. Holder is not going anywhere. He knows no shame because he has no character. Republicans don’t have the loyality to the constitution and rule of law nor honor to do anything about it when Eric won’t resign.

Anyone who would do this has blood on his hands and for a Black Marxist, the ends of ending the constitution justifes the means of killing a lot of innocent people through arming the head chopping cartels in Mexico while leaving the border wide open and the gangs free in the streets of America.

What other crises is the Obama administration creating for it’s take over of the nation? Bet this is not the only crises Mr. Obama are company are diligently creating for the US. This government is a criminal enterprise.

Connect the dots – or the lack thereof.

There was NO WAY the Op could have worked as intended and the circumstantial evidence at hand points to it being a way for the Left to undermine our right to self defense.

IMO Best case scenario is that when this gets into the public’s eye and starts affecting the Obama administration, the racist Mr. Holder will be forced to resign by “The One”. I agree with you, he would never do it on his own.

What I don’t understand is why Rush didn’t spend much time on the Gunrunner topic today, especially after the secret testimony of the AFT head over July 4. To me, this government operation seems just so clearly mind-bogglingly over-the-line and criminal.

There actually IS such a store, in Fallon Nevada, right next to the Big R farm supply store on US 50.

At said store, you can be going down an aisle and see beer cases piled on one side, cases of trap AA ammo on the other.

Oh, and they have a drive-through window.

Rush has gotten wiser about scandals too. He’s let this one develop to a point where there is so much evidence that when he talks about it, it is a slam-dunk.

Melson’s testimony on the record, with his private attorney, is a BIG deal. Really, it is. The DOJ had already lined up a DOJ counsel to rep Melson on the meeting with Congress scheduled for 7/13/2011. Melson short-circuited that entire process with his own counsel in a meeting where the DOJ was NOT in attendance. What he said in this meeting is not in the hands of the DOJ. They don’t know what he said.

Now, anyone with an experience with lawyers and legal depositions knows that there is only one reason for these actions of Melson’s this week: To get his story, the facts as he knows them, into the hands of investigators before the DOJ can color the facts against him. When there’s real nuggets of incriminating stuff out there, the first guy to talk and make a deal that leads to more incriminating evidences gets the best deal. Once the big facts are known, other people looking for a deal don’t have much to bargain with.

To me, the developments this week mean that Melson sees there is real danger to him here - not just of a career ended early, but of real civil and possibly criminal liabilities, and he simply cannot trust anyone else will defend his interests.

“He was accompanied by a private attorney.”

I have been highly suspicious of utilization of threatening tactics by the Leftists now in power to keep their troops in line. There have been too many people I’ve thought highly of that I don’t think that highly of anymore, and I’m therefore suspicious of the reason(s) they would begin chanting in the staccato of rat.

That said my point: He probably thought it a good idea to jump the interview date forward in effort to expose their ploy before they had a chance to Ron Brown him.

There's more danger to him than what you listed here. I hope he has a secure hidey-hole to hide out in for a while before they see him on a parking garage camera, wandering around with one shoe in his hand before he disappears.

I heard it...and absolutely believe it. Hillary was among those calling for tighter gun control and that American weapons were finding their ways into these drug lords’ and gangs’ hands. To think that OUR government or at least some rogues within the adminstration were behind it, is most despicable and sadly, believable. I’m not saying whehter I’m willing to go so far as to say she was directly involved...but it at keast goes as high as Holder. I DO believe that he would stoop that low, not so sure about Hillary. Either way, Americans died and these operatives deserve to hang for it.

The BATF are revenue enforcers gone berserk. If anyone thinks these bass turds won’t come for our guns when the “man” sez sick’em boys, just ask David Koresh. Never mind. He, along with around 80 other men, women,children, and infants, wound up dead after the BATF assaulted them, in a military style operation.

It’s been a long time since the Waco assault. So, once again, they gotta do something to justify their budget.

So hey boys, saddle up, the President needs us to run some guns to the Mexican drug cartels...all we gotta do is ensure these cartels get a good supply of weapons. The DOJ has our back on this one. I got this from high up. Hooray!
Giddy up! The BATF rides again!
