POed POTUS

Obama Has Heated Argument With AZ Gov Jan Brewer

Not a good teaching moment there, BO. Unless, of course, you’re showing us how thin skinned you happen to be. For that, you excel.

Big Big Big Mistake

Strength Through Appeasement… Obama to Share US Missile Secrets With Russia

Will someone in D.C. please look up the definition of treason in the Mirriam-Webster Dictionary now?

Islam Spreading

Huge turnout in Tunisia’s Arab Spring election

Libya’s transitional leader says Islamic Sharia law will be the “basic source” of all law

Brutal ‘Honor Killing’ Described in Canadian Trial for Muslim Father Accused of Murdering Three Daughters & Wife

Incompatible with our morals, our Constitution, our laws, our Christian faith(s).

Right?

Stump The Senator

By asking a pertinent question, from Chris Wallace to Diane Feinstein.

Heh, watch her squirm.

UPDATEx26: Fast And Furious Grows More Legs

Ed Morrissey at the Hot Air site not only explains it well, but poses questions that DOJ must answer.

Trouble is, they haven’t and won’t – looks like.

The thing is, it isn’t just the BATFE. It’s the FBI also.

Ask yourself this, if the online instant check system prevented the strawman purchases (which that would have – since the men involved have prior records) would the Operation Fast & Furious have happened at all?

So this points to the higher ups in DOJ even moreso than previously discussed.

Does the term – egg on your face – mean anything to you, Eric Holder? How about you, Mr. President?

UPDATE: And lost track of over 1,000 guns. Mack and Mire obviously working on it.

UPDATEx2: The Associated Press now weighs in (via POWERLINE).

The Obama administration’s cover-up continues to this day, as Eric Holder’s Department of Justice stonewalls Congress, seemingly in order to prevent the investigation from reaching into the highest levels of the administration. If the media’s need to protect the fast-sinking Obama administration were not so acute, this would be quite a scandal. It will be interesting to see how many newspapers outside the Southwest border region print the AP’s latest story.

UPDATEx3: The investigation expands.

UPDATEx4: So three WH officials received emails, huh?

UPDATEx5: Oh wow, this just gets better and better, or worse and worse, depending on your point of view. From Michelle Malkin, there is also information of not just guns being tossed, er – walked, to Mexican drug cartel(s). Sheesh. And then there’s what’s going on in Indiana, too.

UPDATEx6 and Bumped again: Oh, and two more tidbits: there was a third gun found at Border Agent Brian Terry’s murder, the FBI covered it up, and our tax dollars funded these “walked” guns purchases. If this don’t beat all.

UPDATEx7 and Bumped yet again: Apparently the DOJ is trying to derail the Congressional investigation by Issa. Methinks they protesteth too much.

UPDATEx8: And another piece of the puzzle at Hot Air. Cover-up was to protect an informant? And are there 200 murders as a consequence of this F&F program?

UPDATEx9: More audio, more treachery.

UPDATEx10: We didn’t talk to Mexico about this “program”? How un-neighborly.

UPDATEx11: This blows the “botched sting” theory.

UPDATEx12: What we’ve got here is failure to communicate. (line from Cool Hand Luke)

UPDATEx13: So now the NY Post gets it.

UPDATEx14: More details, much more. F&F at least started back in September 2009.

UPDATEx15: Accomplices named. Oh, and this flashback is pulled from the memory hole.

UPDATEx16: Documents released Friday evening (9/30/11), but not everything. There are, however, some interesting links wthin – such as letters, emails and a chart. A little more is said at Hot Air.

What’s this? DOJ considering getting rid of ATF??? Gee, what do they have to bury, er, hide??? And GatewayPundit chimes in.

UPDATEx17: PajamasMedia adds to the discussion with this little nugget – other operations that did the same. As confirmed by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News – Operation Wide Receiver.

UPDATEx18: So. The AG Eric Holder admits he doesn’t read every memo sent to him? Is that his excuse now? Why, exactly, is he the Attorney General???????

UPDATEx19 … Bumping again: Quite a list here:
House Republicans Request Special Counsel to Probe Holder on ‘Fast and Furious’
GOP Says Eric Holder is ‘Either Incompetent’ or ‘Misleading Congress’
CBS News Reporter Says White House Screamed, Swore at Her Over Fast and Furious
New documents show AG Eric Holder was briefed in July 2010

UPDATEx20:
Is CBS News Silencing Fast and Furious Reporter?
CNN’s Anderson interviews Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) on F&F (via Hot Air)

And if you are interested at all about AG Eric Holder’s storied background, head on over to Michelle Malkin’s site about him.

UPDATEx21:
ATF officials reassigned in latest Fast and Furious fallout
Justice in full panic

Hhhmm, all of a sudden, it kinda looks like more media outlets are paying attention. Hhhmmm.

AHA! At last, Jake Tapper asks the Prez a tough question. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall at that presser. Oh, and Senator Cornyn is exactly right, it looks more like a cover-up.
And more memos.

UPDATEx22: Found in Mexico cartel’s house.

Updatex23: Holder to be subpoenaed? Oh, and Holder makes public about a terror plot bust. As Malkin says, question the timing.

UPDATEx24: This is too much. Love the question: How did the President know about F&F before the AG … back in March … before the AG claimed he even heard about it. HAH! GOTCHA both!

UPDATEx25: Friday, December 2, F&F document dump raises more questions.

UPDATEx26: Friday’s document dump (Jan 27, 2012) includes documentation proving Holder was informed immediately after the agent’s murder.

How Not To Create Jobs Part 2

By enacting Patent Law changes that will ultimately hurt our country, our innovators.

The first paragraph –

On Sept. 16, at a ceremony involving some fanfare, President Obama signed the ironically-styled America Invents Act into law. While posed as an effort to “modernize” U.S. patent law by “harmonizing it with the rest of the world,” the bill actually represents an effort by multinational and foreign corporations to crush America’s vital culture of independent inventors.

Can you say – unConstitutional?

UPDATE: Unpatriot Acts?

The war on civilians, aka citizens, with cameras.

Watch the video. It will explain a lot.

UPDATE: War on photographing police continues:

In its ruling, which lets Simon Glik continue his lawsuit, the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston said the way Glik was arrested and his phone seized under a state wiretapping law violated his First and Fourth Amendment rights.

Full court opinion here and more info at his link.

EXXON Fighting Oil Killers

Here. In the Gulf of Mexico. Our own regulators killed EXXON’s attempt to drill in the largest oil field of over a billion gallons discovered in 2007.
h/t Hot Air.

Per Investors Business Daily:

The Exxon discovery is the biggest in a decade. If put into operation, its billion barrels will be enough to make a dent in America’s oil dependency on foreign tyrants. If that isn’t a sufficient national security reason, what is?

Not to mention our thousands of jobs lost in the Gulf Coast area and beyond, revenues to the government funds lost, economic devastation, more funds lost to overseas oil companies, our oil rigs lost to other countries, etc., etc. etc.

Now what was that quote by candidate Barak Obama? Oh, yeah:
“Under my plan, electrical energy costs would necessarily skyrocket.”

Apparently, it isn’t just coal that provides energy, now is it?

The Great One Asks A Question

Radio host Mark Levin, speaking on issues as: Backdoor amnesty, DOMA, S&P investigation by Justice, Dept. of HHS supporting Obamacare, EPA and cap and trade.

“Is that the act of a dictator?”

Audeo at HotAirPundit.

I would say the answer is – Yes.

Federally Unreserved

$16 Trillion loaned since 2007 to just one year ago. Three years to hand out $16 Trillion.

“The long-awaited GAO audit shows that the Federal Reserve loaned more than the worth of the annual US economy, and not just to American banks, although US institutions got the lion’s share.”

Can we clean out the Senate now? Please?

Remember in November 2012. Although it would be much better if we could do it sooner.

Read the whole article at Hot Air. I’m just too disgusted to say anymore about this here at the moment.

Of course. realize this is as a result of a recent GAO report.

This isn’t fantasy. This is corruption at the highest, unnacountable level.
