The one good thing I figured Barack Obama would do as President was go after the shysters in the mortgage industry. Surely a Democrat as liberal as Obama would make sure that those who aided and abetted mortgage fraud would be punished, right? And last year — coincidentally, right before the election — they announced that they had brought 530 cases representing over 73,000 fraudulent mortgages and a billion in lost home value. It was … Read more

What else can we possibly talk about this week besides the Zimmerman trial? I’m sure you’re sick of it, but I’m starting to wonder if Zimmerman isn’t shaping up to be the controversial John Brown character of our day.
Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry confirmed the worst of what the South feared about the intentions of the North and the threat of a slave uprising. Although there were many causes for the Civil War, Brown … Read more
In a mounting confrontation with congressional Republicans, President Barack Obama invoked executive privilege Wednesday to withhold documents a House committee is seeking. The panel neared a vote on citing Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt.
Comments rapidly grew more heated. A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner suggested administration officials had lied earlier or were now “bending the law,” while Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings said the committee’s GOP chairman “had no interest” in
As of tonight, I am on the other side of the world. Actually, most people would say I blog like someone on from a completely different world. But in this case, it’s literally true: I’m back in Australia. As a result of preparations and travel, I’ve missed the biggest news stories of the week. So I’ll go through them quickly in a weekend roundup form to hopefully start a few (well-reasoned) fights.
First, Indiana … Read more
Late last Friday in a dump they hoped everyone would miss, the DOJ released a series of documents related to operation “Fast & Furious” that all but make it a given Eric Holder lied to congress when he first told them the whopper that he had not heard about the operation until a few weeks before he showed up to testify. He then compounded that lie by claiming it might be weeks instead of months. … Read more
Now that Holder is feeling the fire, and then, despite the LSM and the WH, in what I am sure in a coordinated effort, playing like this story isn’t big when it makes Watergate look tame, non of us should be surprised that he has resorted to the left’s most favorite attack to silence or impugn the character of the people that are pissing them off: the race card!
Them evil honkeys is after … Read more
That’s basically what the democrats seem to want. That’s from guy that pretends he had no clue about operation “Fast & Furious” and actually deserves to be hauled into court to defend the criminal activities he and his people have been trying … Read more
Ask yourself: how would the media have reported a Friday night dump by the Bush Administration’s DOJ basically admitting they lied to congress during an investigation involving an operation that was for lack of better words a criminal action, on foreign soil, without telling the other nation in question about the various operations that were arming some of the most brutal criminal gangs involved in a shooting war that was killing hundreds if not thousands, … Read more
Looks like the Obamanaut’s favored defense for Gunwalker, the “Boosh did it too!” defense, has finally been put to rest, and this was done by the AG under oath, in a 75 second question and answer session by John Cornyn.
It has become clear that for administration apologists, the favored approach for dealing with the “Project Gunwalker” fallout is to loudly shout “Bush did it too!” (as if that would somehow mitigate the atrocity
Which one is that? Well, the one where I pointed out that such a complicated multi-agency operation could simply not happen without the top people at the DOJ driving it, and the DOJ would not drive it without the WH telling them to, and now we find out that Holder at a minimum was informed of this in briefings as this link shows:
WASHINGTON – New documents obtained by CBS News show Attorney General Eric
