Skip to comments.Congressman Issa Announces New Subpoenas for Holder, and 100 Fast and Furious Guns Show
Posted on 10/10/2011 8:32:29 AM PDT by Nachum
Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder tried to stall the momentum building behind the Fast and Furious investigation by submitting a letter to Senate and Congressional investigators in which he continued to plead ignorance, and in which he did his best to undercut the progress of the investigation to this point. In the letter, Holder actually had the gall to re-affirm his feigned ignorance of Fast and Furious: [I have] no recollection of knowing about Fast and Furious or of hearing its name prior to the public controversy about it.

“This news was made worse for Holder by the weekend revelation that 40 Fast and Furious weapons were found in the arsenal of a single cartel member Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo and that there is hard proof that approximately 100 Fast and Furious weapons were moved to El Paso, TX (after being purchased in Phoenix) for distribution purposes.”
GO ISSA AND GO FAST AND FURIOUS AFTER SCUMBAG HOLDER!
Nothing would please me better (well, one thing) than to see holder’s nuts in a vice and watch Issa slowly tighten it.
Obama is not only complicit in the cover up, I think it is clearly, obvious that it started in the White House.
This scandal illustrates the deceptive nature of the left and this administration The purpose was to allow American guns into Mexico so that when they turned up later, the Fedgov, with their willing allies in the media, could justify stringent new gun laws. It is the same with everything they do.. the Occupy Wall St protestors being initiated by the Working Families Party and Labor being referred to as “grass roots”...their single payer health care program disguised as an “American Affordable Health Care Act”...Doesn’t it ever dawn on them that if they have to lie and deceive about everything they do, there might be a reason?
Question One: What other names were used for the program we now call "Fast and Furious"?
I can’t help but believe that Hillary Clinton was also involved in these crimes.
MOST CORRUPT ADMINISTRATION EVER.
THE WATERGATE DEFENSE:
“I don’t recall Senator Ervin.”
This makes Watergate look like a kindergarten picnic. Impeach, arrest, convict, jail.
...So just who, one may wonder, is Acting Inspector General Cynthia Schnedar?
It turns out that Ms. Schnedar has long and close ties to Mr. Holder. According to her biography on the Justice Department website, she became assistant U.S. attorney in Washington, D.C. in 1994. Eric Holder had become the U.S. attorney in Washington the previous year, so he in effect was Schnedars boss from 1994 until 1997, when he left to become President Clintons deputy attorney general. Holder would become a key player in the scandalous pardons of fugitive billionaire Marc Rich and members of the Puerto Rican nationalist terrorist group known as FALN.
And Obama stands by him loyally.
Ladies and gentlemen of America, this is the Obama Administration that you voted in. Would you like another chance?
"In November's election, voters put Republicans in charge of Congress because they believed the pledge of oversight and accountability. Now it's time to honor that pledge. The Executive Branch should be held responsible for its illegalities.
"Our democratic system is grounded in the principle of checks and balances. When the Executive Branch disregards the will of the people, our lawmakers must not be silent. Today's actions, coupled with the president's unwillingness to comply with Senate and House inquiries, leave Republicans with no other option than to consider impeachment so that we can gather the information needed to achieve justice for all Americans." ....

Rep. Lamar Smith, the Republican chairman of the House Judiciary Committee has already written to President Barack Obama asking him to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate.
No can do Lamar. The Bears, golf, on-line gay porn surfing.
The president has been too busy to waste his time on this.
I compare it more to the false accusations over the Iran/Contra stuff during Reagan’s administration. At least then we were arming the good guys fighting the commies in South America(I was very young and don’t really remember the whole thing very well).
Now Obama is arming the drug cartels....who are killing people in the thousands. And just like now..the democrats and leftists were on the side of the commie/marxists in South America. I still think this thing is bigger than just trying to pass more unconstitutional gun laws. We should look for drug money flowing into Obama and democrat coffers. Quid pro quo.....just like Solyndra.
I’m sure the mainstream media is working overtime to try to dig up some dirt on Congressman Issa - an extramarital affair, illegal campaign contributions, a child out of wedlock, a 20 year old DUI charge, an overdue library book - anything that can be used to discredit Issa and shift the focus away from from Holder and Obama.
Amazing. Like Lilly Tomlin, no matter how much more cynical I get, I just can't keep up You can always tell when these arrogant, egotistical an self absorbed Democrats are in really serious trouble - they use the “We are just Incompetent” defense. It's the only time they ever admit they were wrong.
This was big in the Clinton White House.
Things like, “we never intentionally transferred nuclear secrets to the Chinese, but the White House is soooo disorganized and these y staffers people are so incompetent that some time little things slip through the cracks”
Looks like we are going to be entertained by constant stream of Obama appointees who going to testify to Congress that "I don't recall" to every question the are asked including,"What did you have for breakfast today"
The text of Issa’s new letter to Holder is not posted at SSI. It’s a real b-slap across the face. Several slaps. The MSM can’t ignore this now.
“Not” should be “now.” Issa’s letter to Holder is now posted at SSI.
Go for the throat Issa!!
Oh, they have already tried. It isn't working and they are all running scared :)
Notice how no DemocRAT is talking about gun control at the moment?
As stupid as Bush II was on some issues, I find it impossible to believe he would have created something this stupid.
That's the another feature of the Clinton era defense. Use private investigators to dig dirt on you opponents and then blackmail and intimidate them into silence. If that does not work, then use the propaganda power of the Democrat owned Media to destroy and discredit them.
Another, Clinton era card that Obama is already playing is the “Create chaos and turmoil so that people get distracted or get scandal fatigue and just want it all to stop before it has serious negative impact on peoples 401ks and the country as a whole” card that the Clintons played so masterfully.
Protesters are not suddenly occupying Wall Street and Washington as a spontaneous movement. They are there to intimidate Wall Street Investors, Cooperate Officers and Washington politicians with the threat of violence and civil unrest if they don't back off and get back on the Obama bandwagon. Their true unstated, but inferred message is "Support and Re Elect Obama. No Obama, No Peace, No Justice"
You’re right on every point. The odd thing is the press buys their excuses. Most of us feel the press is biased - but what if they’re ‘bought’.
Dems have bought the so called protesters for “Occupy” and the so called press can’t seem to cover that story.
They couldn’t figure out nuclear secrets going to the Chinese during the Clinton years - as you say... or missing documents that just ‘showed up’ at the Clinton White House.
Here some links to the ‘bought and paid for protesters’ - the same ones the press is accepting at face value.
Thanks for your insights.

They'll wait until they have a year or two to re-write history. Once a Republican is back in the White House, they'll make it look like the Republican Party was the sole instigator of F&F, that it was cooked up by the House and Senate leadership back when the Republicans had one-party control of Congress back in 2009 and 2010, that it was all done to make President Obama look bad and to help the rich owners of gun factories make a fortune.
And 54% of likely voters will believe it.
You're right. And the porn pusher - Flynt - is probably offering cash reward for dirt on him. It's like we're up against a criminal operation. Then again, the United States is the BIGGEST plum there is in the world - and no doubt there are groups that would like to destroy us or steal what we have...
Fast and Furious probably messed up liberal elite timing on the fake protest... Score one for the Americans.
It’s a lie - two groups doing stings - one group catching the criminals and the other group supplying them with guns that lack tracking devices are TWO very different operations.
Certifiably alive, I mean.
The DOS hurriedly sent him on a “special mission” to Afghanistan when he was due to testify to Issa before Sept 30.
Kevin, if you're able to google yourself over there (that is, you are still breathing and have internet access), I'm doing what I can to keep you alive, buddy. Making that “stray bullet” a little less likely. Remember Ron Brown? Vince Foster? Etc?
And if your minders put you on a helicopter to move you to a “secure location,” make sure you strap in.
This should be interesting to watch. The Media won't cover it and will do every thing they can to cover up for the Obama Administration, but it should make for some very interesting viral YouTube videos
Get ready for “I don’t recall” to the answer to every Obama Appointee’s sworn testimony and “Under the advice of my attorney, I refuse to answer and exercise my rights under the 5th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States to avoid self incrimination”

You mean the BUSH II that bent over and did NOTHING to stop Democrap Dumbies from destroying America when he was POTUS?
Yes, Bush had a gun WALKING program, track the guns etc. It didn't work and was stopped. Obama just said DUMP GUNS, Blame it on Bush, nothing to see here.
The MSM and other traitors are starting to get very nervous as the truth is LOUD and CLEAR on the internet.
BZZZZZZ. The attempt of the old pathetic excuse of this corrupt administration - i.e. "Blame Bush" - has already been debunked.
This cartoon needs a bleeding body lying in front of the flag, perhaps with a wounded and bleeding Uncle Sam attempting to supply aid.
NSC staffer Kevin OReilly is in my prayers - thanks for sharing.
"Project Gun Runner" was a Bush era ATF program which was designed to catch and prosecute "straw buyers". Purchasers of multiple guns were recruited by ATF agents posing as drug cartel members. The ATF cover story was that they intended to transport the weapons across the border to Mexico. The project resulted in the arrest and conviction of several straw buyers. No guns were allow to cross into Mexico.
"Fast and Furious" used DEA and FBI informants as straw buyers, who were not subject to prosecution and the guns were allowed to cross over to Mexican cartel members.
The main stream media is attempting to confuse the issue by spreading misinformation implying that F&F and Gun Runner are the same program and Bush started it!
Yeah, its been thoroughly debunked.
Under Bush, there was a program call Wide Receiver
Wide Receiver: 2006-2007. 500 TRACKED weapons, ~450 made it to Mexico. Local ATF operation. Botched tracking methods.
Fast and Furious: 2010+. >>2000 UNtracked weapons, all of them made it to Mexico. Multi-jurisdiction DOJ operation. Deliberately allowed weapons to pass to Mexico.
He’s not a good guy. But I’d like him to be alive to testify under oath.
Even this cartoon is missing the body, labelled "Brian Terry - R.I.P.".
I watched a Fox News report on "Fast and Furious" this morning and had to re-watch it to verify that it mentioned the dead agents. As far as I'm concerned, every report should start and end with mention by name of those who paid the ultimate price for this act of treason.
