    Media Matters’ Founder David Brock showed no shame when he was caught illegally using guns for his own personal protection. Indeed, Media Matters’ continues to lash out at others who own guns or support letting individuals use guns for the own protection, even increasing their attacks. In April alone, Media Matters ran 32 articles attacking the NRA alone. Additional pieces have defended the Obama administration’s Fast & Furious program and dealt with other gun related topics. Media Matters also attacked me three times over the last two weeks: I had an op-ed in the New York Daily News and an...

    Judicial Watch ^ | May 8, 2012
    The Justice Department has awarded a group headed by a domestic terrorist and one-time FBI fugitive with close ties to President Obama hundreds of thousands of dollars to reduce racial disparities in the juvenile justice system. This is a story you likely won’t see in the mainstream media, but a conservative political magazine exposed it this week. The Department of Justice (DOJ) has given $400,000 in grants to an organization ( W. Haywood Burns Institute) that blames disproportionately high criminal behavior among minority juvenile delinquents on discrimination. The San Francisco-based nonprofit describes itself as a leading organization in the...

    Indiana Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that he supports the House oversight committee’s efforts to enforce the congressional subpoena of Attorney General Eric Holder over Operation Fast and Furious. “One of the duties of Congress is to provide oversight of the Executive Branch,” Donnelly told TheDC. “There has been a serious allegation of federal law enforcement misconduct and we need to get to the bottom of this issue without playing partisan politics.” Holder has demonstrably failed to comply with the congressional subpoena House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa served him on Oct. 12, 2011....

    Sometimes elections get results, even before they happen. Matthew Boyle at the Daily Caller reports what could be a significant development in the investigation of Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama Administration’s deadly “gun walking” program. A House Democrat has broken ranks with his party - which is absurdly trying to claim that Attorney General Eric Holder has complied with House Oversight subpoenas, even though not a single category of requested documents has been fully provided, and Holder has failed to produce anything to satisfy 13 of the 22 categories. The ranking Democrat on House Oversight, Elijah Cummings (D-MD), comically...

    Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Back in February, U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) promised to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress if Holder didn’t hand over Justice Department documents that had been subpoenaed as part of an ongoing investigation into the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ now-infamous “Operation Fast and Furious” gun-walking operation. This week, Rep. Issa –chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee– made good on the pledge and sent out a draft Contempt Order against Holder to members of the committee. The document makes a case for holding the beleaguered U.S. Attorney General...

    A spokeswoman for House oversight committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa told The Daily Caller that Attorney General Eric Holder could still avoid the contempt of Congress proceedings on the horizon — if he cooperates with the congressional subpoena he's thus far failed to comply with. "The Justice Department can still avoid contempt," Issa spokeswoman Becca Watkins told TheDC. "They need to pledge their cooperation and stop stonewalling on critical documents outlined by the committee in the draft contempt report."Watkins said those "critical documents" include "what high ranking officials knew about Fast and Furious and when they knew it, information about...

    Global Grind ^ | May 7, 2012
    Overcoming injustice and eliminating disparities is something that America still struggles with, as the case of Trayvon Martin has become national news. In a speech to the Detroit chapter of the NAACP on Sunday, Attorney General Eric Holder mentioned the case of Trayvon while talking about the violence and crime involving young people in today’s inner cities. As Holder told the NAACP: "This (violence) is an issue that has -– rightly -– garnered significant national attention in recent months, as our nation has struggled to make sense of the tragic shooting death of a Florida teenager named Trayvon Martin.

    Amazing. Eric Holder’s DOJ funds a Bernadine Dohrn-connected organizationby Tammy on May 7, 2012 The craven, distructive arrogance of these people never ceases to amaze. Great investigation here by National Review Online. Bernardine Dohrn has a history with the Justice Department. More specifically, in the early 1970s, she was one of the FBI’s most wanted fugitives because of her actions with the Weather Underground, a violent radical organization. Times have changed. In 2010 and 2011, the Justice Department saw fit to give $400,000 in grants to an organization that lists Dohrn as a member of its board of directors: a...

    In an explosive Newsweek article set to rock official Washington, reporter Peter Boyer and Breitbart contributing editor and Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer reveal how Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice are operating under a “justice for sale” strategy by forgoing criminal prosecution of Wall Street executives at big financial institutions who just so happen to be clients of the white-shoe law firms where Holder and his top DOJ lieutenants worked.

    When suspects in a crime are interrogated, they often develop memory loss. When the crime is running guns to drug cartels on both sides of the border, the crime involves the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol officer, Brian Terry, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent, Jaime Zapata, and countless Mexican citizens. Katie Pavlich has written an extraordinary expose, "Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal and its Shameless Cover-Up" (Regnery Publishing). She is a veteran agent of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) who has meticulously documented a story that should result in contempt of Congress action...

    Republicans actually have a nice story to tell. The economy sucks. Anyone with a brain knows it is being floated with money printed by the Federal Reserve. The world economy sucks. Europe is going to go into a deep slow down. Italy, Spain, Greece and France will go off the cliff. The economies of Britain and Germany will be on a hamster wheel. All their production and growth will go into a state of “just staying even”. They will be like traders that have a bad position, losing you money each day, but your day trading keeps you afloat.

    Gambling figures prominently in this story, but this isn’t a story about gambling. It’s a story about an administration misusing its power to benefit its friends. It’s a story about the corrupt purchase of our government. For half a century, Democratic and Republican administrations have interpreted the Wire Act, passed in 1961, as prohibiting the sale of lottery tickets by phone or wire, and in more recent years over the Internet. That changed on Christmas 2011, when the Obama/Holder Department of Justice reinterpreted the Wire Act. The DOJ ruled that the Wire Act allows lotteries to sell tickets online....

    Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, is preparing contempt of Congress charges against Attorney General Eric Holder for his failure to cooperate fully with the investigation into Operation Fast and Furious, the Obama Administration’s deadly gun-running program. Warnings were issued, deadlines have passed, and it’s just about “go time.” To this end, Issa has prepared an extensive staff briefing(PDF) on the case, along with a draft of Holder’s contempt citation. A press release from the House Oversight Committee says the briefing paper “explains what happened in Operation Fast and Furious, the hardships faced by the family...

    In a letter to the State Superintendent Dr. Tommy Bice, the DOJ said that absences among Hispanics tripled immediately following the enactment of the immigration law. The DOJ's investigation concentrated on the Section 28 of the law, which requires school districts to collect information on immigration status from students at the time of enrollment. However, the law does not ban undocumented immigrants from attending school. In the letter the DOJ said attendance records show that while absentee rates for other student groups remained static before and after the enactment of Section 28, absentee rates and withdrawals from school increased sharply...

    Obama Files has discovered a recording from 2007 of then-Senator Barack Obama ranting against U.S. gun dealers, blaming the Virginia Tech massacre that had occurred a few months earlier on 'unscrupulous' gun dealers, and throwing in for good measure gun dealers being responsible for the rampant gun violence in Chicago's public schools. This sheds light into the Obama Administration's program to demonize and falsely blame U.S. gun dealers for arming the Mexican drug cartels, while at the same time 'encouraging' them to hand over thousands of weapons to individuals that they knew were planning on transferring them over the border....

Garza testified before the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Border and Maritime Security on May 1 at a hearing entitled, “Using Technology to Facilitate Trade and Enhance Security at Our Ports of Entry.” The CBP is a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Garza said he based his assessment of the safety of U.S. communities along...

    It was only for 14 seconds, and one might question the appropriateness of joking about a government plot that has resulted in hundreds of deaths in Mexico, and two dead federal agents, but comedian Jimmy Kimmel is now one of the few people to have publicly referenced the "Project Gunwalker" scandal in President Obama's presence. This was Saturday night, at the White House Correspondents' Dinner (see sidebar video): Even some of your fellow Democrats think you’re a pushover, Mr. President. They would like to see you stick to your guns, and if you don’t have any guns, they would like...

    Three months ago conservatives were jubilant over reports Congressman Darrell Issa would offer a Contempt of Congress complaint against Eric Holder. After all, the Attorney General had openly refused to honor House Oversight Committee subpoenas for an estimated 80,000 documents vital to the Committee’s investigation of the role played by members of the Obama Regime in Operation Fast and Furious. Holder spent nearly a year lying to Congressional committees and making clear he had no intention of honoring legal subpoenas. His Assistant Attorney General Ron Weich had written a February 4th, 2011 letter to congress claiming the criminal walking of...
