So Judicial Watch has finally managed to fight through the bureaucratic nonsense and the illegal maneuvering and lies from the age of Obama DOJ to obtain documents related to the Fast & Furious scandal using FOIA requests, and have posted what they have received on their site. Something already found since these documents were turned over on November 18th, lends credence to the belief so many of us have that the WH and the DOJ where actively working together to suppress any and all reporting on their reasons for and involvement in the criminal Fast & Furious scandal. Specifically we have an email detailing the collusion to force the one reporter really looking into this crime – Sharyl Attkinson from CBS – to stop. And I am willing to bet it doesn’t end there. In the end we will hopefully find the truth despite the obfuscation. Holder wearing an orange jumpsuit, at a minimum, would be kharmic, but I suspect a presidential pardon will be issued.

Eric Holder has stepped down as Attorney General. I believe he is the only cabinet member to be held in Contempt of Congress for his role in Operation Fast and Furious. He also dropped the investigation into the New Black Panthers, declined to prosecute any of the people responsible for the financial crisis, led monitoring of the media including James Rosen, continued to persecute medical marijuana clinics and helped preside over one of the more lawless administrations I can remember.
But I’ll be nice and hope the door doesn’t hit him in the ass on the way out. Or at least, doesn’t him too hard.
I can discuss the prevalent double standard about how the left and their cronies in the LSM handle news about scandalous behavior from their side or that of their opponents – and have no doubts that the left believes anyone not with them is the enemy – but that’s a waste of time. When it’s one of their enemies that is in potential trouble, they are swift to pass judgment, based on flimsy information, if not outright conjecture and emotional drivel. Don’t take my word for it. Research how often anyone that disagrees with King Obama or anything else the left uses to keep its hold on power, and you will find anyone being critical of them automatically being labeled as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-science, being a terrorist, or against progress, for which of course, only they stand.
Even more important is how they will spin things, even when there are no facts to back the bullshit they peddle up, to create trouble for those they view as the enemy. If there is a way to make the enemy look bad, they go for the jugular. Nobody is spared. They will dig through the garbage of a member of the opposition they view as a threat, and make up shit if they find nothing. They will immediately accuse the enemy of having criminal intent, practically always based on flimsy or no evidence. When they do have evidence, they hammer the narrative home. They will report and accuse local or small potato members of the enemy of abuses, criminal behavior, or of not adhering to the PC standards the left created (but doesn’t hold its people to), while ignoring real crime, abuse of power, and despicable behavior by prominent members of the loyal leftocracy. If you have the wrong letter next to your political affiliation, you are assumed to be guilty, and condemned, even though they might pretend they are not doing that, whether there is something there or not. And if it is there, it is national news.
But when it comes to one of their own, the leftists, when they can’t just ignore the story, will obfuscate the facts and paint the whole thing in the most positive light possible, pretending, with all seriousness, that what they are doing is waiting for the facts to come out. The right thing to do is to not prejudge, and to wait for the whole affair to play itself out In the meantime, again unless they can just drop the story and hope it goes away, they will tell you that the blatant impropriety, abuse of power, or downright criminal activity one of their own was caught in, is all made up, and that the evil opponents of progress are just trying to make hay out of nothing. These things I mention can all be found in the lack of coverage and the continued cover-up of the now almost 2 year old IRS scandal.
What is now obvious is that the objective is to drag it out so they can tell the low information voter that the story is old. It’s why people like me have an immediate and visceral reaction whenever the left tells us we need to wait out the facts and the investigation when one of their own was caught. We have to wait for whatever is practically exhibit A for the fact that there is illegal or criminal behavior involved.
Every scandal that Team Blue is involved in seems to follow this process. The government’s role in the Fast-and-Furious (have you heard what’s going on with this anymore?) anti-second amendment scheme, the despicable cover-up of what went down in Benghazi to protect Hillary and King Obama, the IRS targeting political opponents of the left, The lies and chicanery around Obamacare, and countless other such stories all require us to wait for the facts, only to then turn into the left telling us “what does it matter now anymore”. Despicable.
The Fast and Furious investigation is over, right? All a big paranoid delusion by the Right Wing, right? Hahaha! Those crazy Right Wingers and their theories.
A new report by our partners at Univision has found additional links between violent crimes in Mexico and guns involved in the Obama administration’s flawed “Fast and Furious” operation.
Fifty-seven previously unidentified weapons tied to the operation — allowed to “walk” across the U.S. border into Mexico so ATF agents could trace them – were later found at the sites of murders, kidnappings and at “two gruesome massacres,” Univision’s Gerardo Reyes and Santiago Wills report.
The reporters made the discovery by cross-referencing a list of guns registered with “Fast and Furious” and a Mexican government list of the roughly 60,000 guns recovered at crime scenes in 2009 and 2010.
In July, a congressional investigation into the program reported 122 weapons had been traced to Mexican crime scenes. The Univision report adds 57 weapons to that list.
By the way, there are still 1200 guns unaccounted for. Even if we accept the DOJ’s excuse that this program started under Bush (it didn’t really, but let’s play their game), does the Justice Department bear no responsibility for this? Does the Attorney General bear no responsibility? You know I hate playing the “if Bush did it” game, but … Univision’s report literally shows blood in the streets. Does anyone here think that, had this happened five years ago, we’d be hearing about it from fucking Univision?
This isn’t over. This is only going to get worse and worse.
