The Department of Justice and Media Matters corresponded and coordinated on stories about Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking, going so far as to disparage the citizen journalist who initially broke the story, Matthew Boyle of The Daily Caller reported today, citing emails obtained from a Freedom of Information Act request to determine the extent of cooperation between the government and the progressive advocacy group.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list

People wind up being hanged for treason at the end of this short story. I hope they read it carefully at the Dept of No Justice.
evidently half the poplulation dont care about this. They should but they don’t. They dont care that gun controlled Chicago is over run by drug cartel cause half are using the drugs.
FOX News needs to stay on this story - this dem “war room’ type of activity is the tip of an iceberg.
They don’t KNOW ABOUT IT!
