Republicans balking on Fast and Furious help suppress new information
examiner.com ^ | 6/4/12 | David Codrea

Posted on 06/04/2012 10:33:27 PM PDT by Nachum

Two significant insider accounts that would expand public knowledge about the government’s role in the Fast and Furious “gunwalking” criminal enterprise are being withheld from public dissemination because the sources fear reprisals, an “Armed American Radio” panel discussed on last night’s nationally syndicated program. This correspondent joined host Mark Walters, Producer Sean Young, guests Joe Weaver of WGUL 860 AM and blogger George “Mad Ogre” Hill, to examine the effects the slow pace of the investigation and a perceived lack of will to pursue serious legal consequences by the GOP leadership have had on discouraging a whistleblower and an industry source from allowing their stories to be made public.

The first account deals with an ATF whistleblower. Gun Rights Examiner engaged in extensive telephone conversations with a known source, followed by numerous emails, to clarify information provided, only to be asked not to publicly release the report after it had been drafted. The reason for this was the source had no confidence that anyone would provide protection, particularly in light of personal experience as well as other documented cases of retaliation by the government.

The GOP knows that if Obama gets to play the Bill Clinton Victim card he might win.

They will not prosecute the scumbag for:

Libya

Fast and Furious

Destroying GM and illegally giving it to union thugs

Green money to failing companies.....

And they know the Demo Communist traitors will not vote to convict Obama no matter what he did. The REPUBS know it is up to the voters to remove this scumbag and his traitorous support groups.

Our vaunted GOP “leaders” like boehner are pathetic pieces of crap.
Piece of crap that should be tarred and feathered and drug out of town from the back of a Greyhound bus.
Hey GOP, I’m outta here, time to switch to independent.

My question is very simple. Why the heck is anyone surprised by this? The system, and its Janus-like party will always protect itself.

Boehner already came out and cried about how he has not done anything to hinder the F & F investigation(because he found out it was leaked to the press).

The Bible tells us Jesus Christ wept several times. I don’t think Jesus was a wimp. Do you?

One would fervently hope that you don’t compare Boehner and our Savior as equals : )

Myself, I would prefer a Border Collie to Boehner.....more loyal, and more intelligent.

GOP and the Dems, not a thimble of difference betwixt them.

The big difference between them is the MSM covers for the Democrats, and threatens the Republicans.

The dilemma for the old time Republicans, is that now the new media exposes a good bit of what the MSM would cover-up for the Democrats. The old Republicans are between a rock and a hard spot. If they go after the Democrats, the MSM will paint them as racist, partisan ideologues. If they do not, the new media will paint them as wimps. This did not happen before 1994, because the conservatives had virtually no media presence, which was why they were reliably in the minority.

The old Republicans are used to the MSM bossing everybody around. They see how the MSM destroys Republicans who get out of line, like Newt and Tom Delay.

Sometimes I think the Democrat party is just the political arm of the MSM.

Our job, in the new media, is to shine enough truth out there to push the old Republicans to do their job, and to protect them from the MSM, by showing how agenda driven the MSM is.

I am not comparing Boehner with Jesus but just stating that Jesus cried and there is nothing particularly wimpy about a man crying. I think it shows humanity which is a trait sadly lacking in Washington DC
