  • DOJ Admits Fast & Furious Docs Should Be Released Under FOIA After Indefinitely Delaying JW’s Suit

    Can a federal agency trying to cover up wrongdoing lawfully withhold documents under executive privilege—reserved for the president of the United States—when the records don’t even involve the commander-in-chief? That’s the question being argued before a federal court in Washington D.C. and the ruling could have a widespread impact on how government unscrupulously hides information from the public as well as Congress. The feud involves a congressional committee investigating a disastrous Obama administration experiment that allowed Mexican drug traffickers to obtain U.S.-sold weapons that later ended up in a multitude of crime scenes, including the murder of a Border Patrol...

    Yahoo Mail users are furious after the company debuted a major resign of the popular email service that eliminated many features and, some claim, left it looking like a knock off of competitor Gmail. Observers say the 'beautiful' new look of Yahoo Mail is a product of new Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer - and it has backfired. The mail service's 275million users were 'surprised' on October 8 with the redesign and tens of thousands have complained about glitches and reduced functionality. Many simply don't like the look and feel of the new product.

    A Mexican national claims to be the man who shot and killed U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, whose death is tied to the "Fast and Furious" gun-walking scandal. Gustavo Cruz-Lozano, who says he killed Terry, turned himself in on Wednesday on charges related to a separate incident: threatening to kill Hidalgo County, Texas Sheriff Lupe Trevińo. But before he surrendered himself, Cruz-Lozano said in an exclusive interview with Univision News' daily news magazine show "Primer Impacto" that he murdered Terry during a firefight on Dec. 14, 2010, while the agent was on patrol near the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona....

    Today's Washington Post editorial clings to the liberal anti-gun rights view that only the government should have access to "military weapons," by which of course they mean semiautomatic "assault rifles" like the AR-15. Of course, government corruption and incompetence has long been an avenue by which criminals have obtained weapons, the Fast & Furious gunrunning scandal being an instructive case in point. But alas, the drug-running scandal was curious missing from the January 11 editorial in which the Post argued that in addition to an assault weapons ban, the U.S. government needs to crack down on international gun-smuggling, particularly on...

    Let's start with the facts: Eric Holder is covering up something with Fast and Furious. Obama has supported him (for now) with the ridiculous and unsupportable claim of executive privilege. Okay, now to the speculation... we know a coverup is occurring. What we don't is who is covering whom. There are two good guesses as to what is going on (which aren't mutually exclusive). The most commonly assumed is that Eric Holder knew everything and Obama is covering for him. The more intriguing is that Obama knew about it and he's really covering for himself with Holder's help. Here's where...

In a July 3 letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, Sen.

    While President Obama creates fresh wounds and opens the old, he continues to engage in his multi-year attempt to build perception of a Lincolnesque equivalence to his perverse activities and policies. He has many up his sleeve but what is the latest? Recently Barack Obama declared that illegal aliens under 30 will not be deported but instead be given work permits. In his deluded mind, this declaration of amnesty for approximately 800 thousand illegal aliens is his historic version of Lincoln’s "emancipation proclamation”. Of course it is a preposterous correlation to draw: The Africans were a people brought here on...

    he two most important words in the current Obama administration scandal aren’t “Fast” or “Furious.” They are “Brian Terry.” In December 2010, Brian Terry — a former Marine and police officer turned Border Patrol agent — was working in Arizona, 11 miles from the Mexican border. He was killed in a gunfight with Mexican drug runners, and two of the AK-47s found at the scene were linked to a then-unknown program of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms called “Operation Fast and Furious.” The name is perfect, because the president wants you furious — and fast. He wants you...

    The root of Operation Fast and Furious is gun control.

Bobby Rush (D-IL) in 2000, when Obama’s hypocrisy on gun control legislation earned him the outrage and ridicule of the Chicago media, and sealed his electoral defeat. Then-state senator Obama had backed a bipartisan bill called the Safe Neighborhoods Act. It would have raised the crime of illegal transport of a firearm from a misdemeanor to...

    President Obama has granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over Fast and Furious documents, a last-minute maneuver that appears unlikely to head off a contempt vote against Holder by Republicans in the House. The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to forge ahead Wednesday morning with its meeting on the contempt resolution anyway. If the vote proceeds, Republicans have more than enough votes on committee to pass the resolution. However, Holder would not be considered held in contempt of Congress unless and until the full House approves the measure.

The reinforcement, known at the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act, is badly needed in light of Fast and Furious as retaliation against whistleblowers exposing corruption within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF falls under the jurisdiction of the Justice Department) runs rampant. The legislation is bipartisan and is co-sponsored by Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee Elijah Cummings. "Whistleblowers play critical roles in exposing...

    Senate fires warning shot at Justice Dept. over 'Fast and Furious'By Josiah Ryan - 10/18/11 05:03 PM ET The Senate Tuesday afternoon unanimously cleared an amendment to prohibit funding for operations similar to the Justice Department's botched gun-tracking program, nicknamed “Operation Fast and Furious.” The amendment is designed to prevent the Justice Department from implementing similar programs in the future, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) — the sponsor of the amendment — said prior to the 99-0 vote. “When 2000 firearms go missing and at least one is found at the crime scene of a murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent, we...

    The testimony before the Oversight committee by Holder and numerous officials from the Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security, and other federal agencies was a clinic on obfuscation -- and it left Issa with little choice. “It’s time we know the whole truth,” Issa said of this latest development in the widening scandal. “The documents this subpoena demands will provide answers to questions that Justice officials have tried to avoid since this investigation began eight months ago.” The California Republican is not a lawyer by profession, but Issa, along with his relatively small staff, has managed to go toe-to-toe with...

    House Republicans today announced that they had sent subpoenas to Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department to gain more information about Operation Fast and Furious, the controversial gun-walking program that allowed weapons to go to Mexican drug gangs. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) says his Oversight Committee wants some very basic information, described below. = The subpoena seeks the following: In accordance with the attached schedule instructions, you, Eric H. Holder Jr., are required to produce all records in unredacted form described below: All communications referring or relating to Operation Fast and Furious, the Jacob Chambers case, or any...

    According to Department of Justice whistleblower J. Christian Adams, AG Eric Holder has a certain something in his wallet. It is a quotation — and he has carried it for decades. It essentially says, to quote Adams, "Blackness is more important than anything, and the black US attorney has common cause with the black criminal." It's not surprising that Holder would feel this way about black lawyers and criminals. Because in his case they're one and the same. Holder, the man whose misfeasance led him to drop the infamous Black Panther voter-intimidation case, now may have done what all corrupt...

    EXcerpt.....They make an excellent case for one. And they are the most directly affected law enforcement officers, most of them from border counties: Ten Arizona sheriffs demanded on Friday that a special counsel be appointed to investigate the roles of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and other top administration officials in a gunrunning probe that allowed weapons to find their way into criminals' hands. "All of this doesn't smell right," said Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu, joined by several other sheriffs at a news conference outside the State Capitol. "I believe that this is a much larger scandal than anything...

    In a letter to Congress, Attorney General Eric Holder has gone on the record with the most details yet about what he and other Justice Department officials knew about ATF's Fast and Furious operation, even though memos surfaced earlier this week showing multiple briefing memos mentioning Fast and Furious were sent to him as early as July of last year.... ...Holder blamed Congress for failing to consider whether "additional tools are needed to stem the flow of guns to Mexico" and warned "until we move beyond the current political climate..nothing is going to change."

    by John HillStand With ArizonaThe walls are closing in on Eric Holder, and the Justice Department, and White House are showing the strain. Friday evening, the usual time for under-the-radar "document dumps" that get lower press coverage, the White House released new emails which showed extensive communication between former ATF Phoenix Special Agent in Charge William Newell and White House national security team staff over 'Operation Fast and Furious'. Fast and Furious sent thousands of weapons to cartel killers, hundreds of which have been found at crime scenes in the U.S. and Mexico, and an AK-47 from which murdered Border...

    REPORTING FROM MEXICO CITY -- The United States government has yet to brief Mexican authorities on the failed Fast and Furious gun-running operation that led to scores of American weapons being smuggled purposefully into a raging drug war, Mexico's top law enforcement official told The Times. "At no time did we know or were we made aware that there might have been arms trafficking permitted," said Atty. Gen. Marisela Morales in comments from a recent interview with Times reporters published Tuesday. "In no way would we have allowed it, because it is an attack on the safety of Mexicans."

    Two new pieces of the puzzle here, one published 10 days ago and the other just this afternoon. We already knew that Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered in December with two AK-47s sold by the ATF through the F&F operation. That’s what broke the scandal open, of course — American law enforcement gunned down with weapons ingeniously provided to Mexican drug cartels by … American law enforcement. What we didn’t know until recently is that there might have been more than two guns recovered at the scene. Enter CBS brandishing a snippet of audio between an ATF agent...

    Let us unite our forces and bring the Obama regime in the spotlight for the operation Fast & Furious. Let us do the job the liberal media won't do: inform both politicians and the American public about the disgraceful way in which the Obama DOJ, the ATF and the FBI (all under direct orders form the White House) conspired to arm Mexican drug cartels in order to create murder and mayhem in the border States and thus justify Obama's push for draconian gun laws imposed on American citizens. On September 22, the Republican primary candidates will meet in Orlando, Florida...
