Why is Fast and Furious an approved topic for establishment conservatives and libertarians? - 06/24/12
I was more than a bit surprised to see Nick Gillespie of Reason Magazine squaring off with Rachel Maddow over Fast and Furious - and taking the American side of that issue .
Yesterday the Department of Justice sued Alabama over that state's new anti-illegal immigration law, just as it sued Arizona over the law that Alabama's was modeled after.
Earlier today, Barack Obama met with a group of 70 "stakeholders" to discuss a new push for comprehensive immigration reform. The stakeholders in question represent only a small number of Americans; see the list below.
"Project Gunrunner" was a BATF scheme in which they encouraged gun stores to sell to those who were likely to send the purchased guns to Mexico to be used in that country's drug wars. Two of those guns might have been used to kill Border Patrol agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jamie Zapata. The supposed goal of Gunrunner was to trace the guns to Mexico in order to catch the higher-ups, but it apparently had very little success. And, it would be nearly impossible for their not to be a political component. The Obama administration has been harping on guns being sent to Mexico for two years,...

Eric Holder admits hasn't read Arizona immigration law (despite previously criticizing it) - 05/13/10
Despite having criticized the new Arizona immigration law at least a few times, Attorney General Eric Holder today admitted (link) that he hasn't read the law but has only "glanced" at it. Pressed by Rep. Ted Poe, Holder said: "I've just expressed concerns on the basis of what I've heard about the law. But I'm not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is." As can be seen at the first link in this post, what Holder has "heard about the law" is probably inaccurate since the...
Three days before the failed terrorist attack over Detroit, the Obama administration was briefed about the possibility of terror attacks over the holidays (link). This is of course similar to the infamous "Bin Ladin Determined to Strike in US" report that George W Bush received shortly before 911: President Obama received a high-level briefing only three days before Christmas about possible holiday-period terrorist threats against the U.S., NEWSWEEK has learned. The briefing was centered on a written report, produced by U.S. intelligence agencies, titled "Key Homeland Threats," a senior U.S....
The attached video is of Senate testimony from Attorney General Eric Holder on a federal hate crimes bill (S. 909). According to this: It features Attorney General Holder flatly stating that, despite promising to do so, S. 909 will not protect all Americans who are victims of violent hate crime. It will only protect a privileged minority, including homosexuals, blacks, and Jews. Secondly, Holder can provide no example of even one state failing to enforce the law against hate criminals. They suggest contacting Senators and asking them to view the video. According to Investors Business Daily...
Supposed declaration on Bill Clinton paid off by Marc Rich (pardon, Eric Holder confirmation) - 11/23/08
I don't exactly believe this, but there's a picture here of a supposed declaration from an unnamed witness describing how commodities trader Marc Rich set up a $250 million fund to assure that he was pardoned by president Bill Clinton. For those whose memories of those hazy, crazy days of the (first) Clinton administration are hazy, there's a description of the case here.
Obama cabinet might include Democrat titans: Gore, Napolitano, Vilsack, Howard Dean, Caroline Kennedy... - 11/11/08
The Barack Obama cabinet might include such Democratic Party titans as Al Gore, Arizona governor Janet Napolitano, former Iowa governor Tom Vilsack, Caroline Kennedy, Howard Dean, Bill Richardson, John Kerry, and many more truly titanic names. This link has a "transition flowchart", a PDF showing some potential picks and all of them are truly great figures who will help the Repu... er, I mean the Democrats. While this could all be a jolly joke, who knows since the head of the transition team is John Podesta and his think tank the Center for American Progress is as much a joke as the Harding...
