The Democrats want an accounting on this. They want someone a-counting out $100 bills into their bank accounts.

Is there a link to a live stream of this hearing? None that I saw posted on Twitter. I think they are on break at the moment. There are already a number of articles written about this at Fox and the The Daily caller. I have posted links to those at my website.

Generally, as this is all on C-Span, sometimes you can find live streaming at Politico, CNN's website, and maybe some of the smaller blogger's like "Right Scoop". I guess one can subscribe to C-Span on cable, but my underwhelming budget does not allow :)

Deserves credit for what he’s done for civil rights enforcement? What the hell would that be, the triumph of voting intimidation by the black panthers, and telling them, now go home and don’t do that again? Oh, I remember, white folks, by definition, can’t be discriminated against, its a material impossibility.

Hearing is over. It was NOT on TV on any channel, but C-Span, Fox and Issa’s F&F website all carried it streaming.

C-Span should have the video up shortly for viewing, and since C-Span didn’t carry it live, I am assuming they will broadcast it later on TV.

Youtube has snippets from the House Committe’s page.

C-Span did stream it, but I did not find the link until the very end of the broadcast

Issa’s website cut off the hearing right before Holder’s “last word,” which Issa had promised him.

Will follow the live thread when I listen to the C-Span video again and maybe post there if I find anything of interest in that portion of the hearing I pinged you to.

Sheesh! I see now that the live thread wasn’t posted in “Breaking”

The hearing was over 4 hours and the live thread provides excellent comments to follow.

If you listen to the full video, you can cut your time in half by skipping the Dems. They were worthless and provided nothing but the mantra buzz words and group talking points.

Is cspan going to broadcast or rebroadcast the whole thing? Admitting right now I could check myself, but if you already know, why should I? LOL

lol; If I didn’t know you so well, I would think you are lazy. roflol

I checked C-Span for the video. Not up yet. I cannot believe C-Span did not carry it live on TV, and I will consider them derelict if they do not carry it tonight or later on TV. Either way, I will keep my eye out and ping you if I find.

Oh, I forgot, you need the TV version. OK, will ping if I see it listed.

I just checked for airing. It says, “No airings scheduled.”

I went here and clicked on “Federal Gun Smuggling Operation”:

http://www.c-spanvideo.org/schedule/#mainBar

a pop-up box opens to ask you if you want to be alerted by email when the video is up or when it airs. I checked both.

It asks how many minutes before it airs would you like to be alerted. I said “120 minutes.” If you do this alert box, the DEFAULT is “5 minutes,” so don’t miss that part.

We will see how this goes.

“”They just murdered two Texas Missionaries in Mexico. Just broke on Fox. DAMN!!!””

This is why you can’t rely on FOX any longer. This was covered on FR a day or two ago and it seems that it happened either on Sunday or earlier in the week??? Stick to FR and you’ll be a couple of days ahead of the news reporting cycle.

I watched all the testimony on live stream (thanks to FR posting it) and it didn’t accomplish much but it was interesting. Probably the most glaring “admission” by Holder was he didn’t know anything at all about F&F but HE DID KNOW that it wasn’t set up to subvert any US citizen’s 2nd Amendment rights! That was astounding and no one questioned him on that ridiculous statement.

There was quite a pukey congressman (D) from VA - Connelly? He thought he was pretty cute. Asked Holder all kinds of questions about existing laws against firearms trafficking and straw purchasers - tongue in cheek with every question and then sat back when Holder gave his answers looking so outraged and perplexed - “NO, we don’t have laws against that?”

Great theater but he’d do better a local comedy club. AND “Have you recommended the assault weapons ban be lifted?” Of course, the aim of F&F had nothing to do with gun control!

Gowdy (R) - I’m not sure where he’s from but got right to the point and read emails which Holder said he didn’t know about so Issa went into a 5 minute recess so they could get them to Holder...

The Republicans did a great job but the dems were all grandstanding. Kucinich showed up near the end and said he was late because he & his wife had been at the prayer breakfast and they said a prayer for him and it looked as tho’ their prayer had already been answered because there still wasn’t any evidence Holder was responsible for anything. I guess not even responsible for KNOWING WHAT WAS GOING ON in his own department.

Maloney (D-NY) put on a show as usual also.. They see it all as a “political” hit job, of course. She couldn’t repeat “past administration” enough in her 5 minutes....

Holder knew a lot about the program run from the Bush administration (that was shut down) but not the one going on under his nose!!

Who’s buying it?

Basically, he’s saying that he, as a black politician, cannot be held accountable for malfeasance in office.
To do so would be racist.

Great summary.
This was the first I had heard about the Missionaries! I usually read FR rom early morning to early morning with a snooze break in between and don’t know how I could have missed this since I also do the Borderwars Pings and specifically look for things like this. I’d appreciate a ping if something like this comes up again...if you wouldn’t mind.

You know, I was half joking in my comment, but your comment led me to realize, that Racism is being re-defined by race obsessed members of the black community and is being codified by this black led DoJ... in essence creating a law where there has never been one before and one that has never been passed in congress and signed by a president... good point!

I’ll lose whatever tenuous hold I have on my emotions if I listen to/watch Dems or Holder. Seriously. I prefer to read transcripts or summaries. I’m on a hair trigger as it is!

You can watch about the first half of the you tube video before hearing from a dem and get to see Ann Marie in action.

She just barely squeaked in as our Congresswoman in this last election, but made it.

I voted for her. WHOO HOO!!!

Issa is on Greta on Fox tonight. BTW, Cummings, Dem of Md., said all this was trumped up by those wascally Pubs. Nothing there, move on. The Black Caucus bandits all over again . No Dem ever is guilty and we say so , so that is it. Bad Pubs, we will get you.

Nauseating. Your and my Justice Department at work.

Acts like a cheap trial lawyer instead of the leading legal official for the United States.

Holder is pure trash.
