Remember Issa has whistle blowers and apparently an anonymous person dropped docs on his office doorstep proving the involvement up to the executive branch.

You obviously have far more faith in the workings of our government than I. IMO, aside from the outrage generated in those of us who pay attention to these sorts of “official” misdeeds, nothing of substance will come of any of this. The guilty will walk and our nation will continue its death spiral.

Sometimes I am very happy that I am old and going to die soon.

Of the nearly 30,000 firearms recovered in 2009 and 2010 in Mexico, where gun possession is illegal, some 70 percent were determined to have come from the United States, ATF officials told lawmakers last week.

And this is the kind of BS that is considered factual.....amazing.

Jason Chaffetz was interviewed on Hugh Hewitt this week. I really liked him and I believe he is going to challenge Orrin Hatch to become senator.

More than 100,000 guns were siezed. Some 29,000 were SUBMITTED by Mexico to the ATF.(less than 30%) Of that 30%, about 70% are said to come from the US (including US manufacture[!]) So now we are down to about 21% of the total siezed. I wonder how many of THOSE weapons were the result of thefts in the US and Mexico as well as GW/F&F?

IOW, this story is total BS!!!

Those stats come straight from fairyland. That’s what this was all about, forcing truth into those lies so they could try and disarm Americans. Especially those witnessing the invasion first hand.

This is much worse than what was reported about the Iran Contra.

I called my dad and said this, "Dad, how many Americans were killed because of the Iran Contra affair?"

Answer "None."

How many Americans died due to Eric Holder selling guns to Mexican drug murderers? "Atleast two probably more."

Yet, the libs wanted to impeach Reagan and hang Oliver North... read the tag it explains it all!!!

"The ATF made it easier for alleged cartel middlemen to get weapons from US gun dealers. Agents were actually ordered to stand by and watch these middlemen, these straw purchasers, buy hundreds upon hundreds of weapons."
Senator Grassley

Anyone see a Libya/Muslim Brotherhood 'acquiring weapons from "friends"' parallel here?

The motive is always to strengthen the enemy.

The BATF elitist A-HOLES knew full well what they were doing—as did Eric Holder and the Barack Hussein Obama. These bastards intentionally facilitated the sale of weapons to mobsters, for the sole purpose of inciting political ire against lawful American gun owners—and with the primary expectation of increasing this Administration’s draconian choke hold on our liberties!

THESE INDIVIDUALS AIDED AND ABETTED THE LEVYING OF WAR AGAINST THE AMERICAN PEOPLE—AND AGAINST THE INDIVIDUAL BORDER STATES ... THAT ACT MAKES THEM GUILTY OF TREASON, AS THE WORD IS SPECIFICALLY DEFINED IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION.

Recall too that, within the time frame during which this “operation” was ongoing, the mainstream media—AND THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE—were pushing the canard that “95 percent of the Mexican Cartels’ guns were coming from gun shops in the US” ... NOW we know through whom and by whose direct orders—the the OBAMA White House, the OBAMA Justice Department, and the OBAMA BATF.

The owners of American gun selling establishments were cajoled and reassured by the OBAMA Administration, through their BATF proxies, that to cooperate in allowing such sales was in their best interest! They were set up to be made political whipping posts.

When you put the facts together—particularly the timely Obama-induced media spin against gun owners, gun shows, and gun shops—then it becomes crystal clear that the entire “Fast and Furious / Gun Walker” operation was PURPOSED to incite public opinion against American gun rights.

In other words, these effing government SOB’s BECAME WILLING ACCESSORIES TO PREMEDITATED MURDER, in the hope of scoring a political victory against our Second Amendment Rights!

This is a treachery beyond compare. This is sufficient reason to take down this tyrannical fascist Obama regime—by armed force, if necessary—because these bastards know no limits, AND WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DEPRIVE AMERICANS OF OUR LIFE, LIBERTY AND PROPERTY!

UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON HERE! BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, AND HIS MARXIST CRONIES, WILL EAGERLY AID DRUG LORDS, GANGSTERS AND MERCENARIES IN THE KILLING OF INNOCENT AMERICAN AND MEXICAN CITIZENS—JUST SO THAT THEY MAY AFFECT GREATER LEVERAGE TO DEPRIVE AMERICANS OF OUR FREEDOMS!

It is time to END THE REIGN of “King” Obama. Impeach him, try him, and publicly execute him—and all those who have aided in his fowl and treacherous treason. Damn them all to Hell!

For the sake of those just now realizing this if Issa seemed to be losing it; it is because he was told by Holder I DON’T KNOW and now the assistant AG- I DON’T KNOW. Cummings apologizing ticked me off.All of the dems seemed to protect the president.BEYOND STONEWALLING! But then Cummings later seemed to see the very conflicts of the DOJ statements.

After the agents testimony (I pray they are in a good witness protection program) that even the CIC can’t infiltrate.Assistant AG could not even state that the illehal operation fast and furious was NOT still underway.

A lot of ATF/DOJ people should be fired and tried in court.It seems the rule of thumb with anybody under Obama is mob corruption and NO RESPONSIBILITY IS EVER TAKEN.Obama has no leadership he will let all go down but him.Will they all protect him?An outside organization should be investigating separate of DOJ as immunity could then be offered to the higher ups to bring down the kingpin which absurdly is the president and AG. In the end of the testimony Assistant AG slipped up. His and Holder’s SWORN testimony was that the KNEW NOTHING. Issa asked him for the names of those that sent the Jan. verbal testimony as it was proven to be an outright lie and conflicted.Assistant AG ACTUALLY SAID it was the EXECUTIVE BRANCH.Did Issa miss this?Were they all so tired?

Find a tape of Schumer stonewalling on the panel after WACO if you really want to lose your lunch.

Many thanks for the link.

(I’m pretty sure it isn’t but I occasionally have wondered if Rep. Cummings has a CD/DVD drive in his forehead)

absolutly no doubt that this”operation fast and furious” was a political move to justify more gun control legislation.

And IIRC, that news coverage featured House and Senate rats. This was an incredibly stupid publicity stunt to prod more draconian guns laws.

And let’s not forget the assault by BATF at Waco was timed to prod Congress to increase their funding.

We’ve seen this movie before.
