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.

Your Rights Mean Absolutely Nothing

In California, especially recently.

Here are just two new reasons not to be living there if you value your Constitutional rights. (Which, according to our Constitution, the government is supposed to protect our rights, not manipulate or take them away.)

1) California will now maintain a permanent record of all new long guns purchased within it borders.

2) Gov. Jerry Brown vetoed a bill that would have required police to obtain a warrant before searching an arrestee’s mobile phone.

This is the second time he’s been elected Goverrnor, right?

How’s that working out for you CA residents?

DOJ Redfines Stonewall

Darrell Issa on whether there should be a Special Prosecutor on the Fast and Furious DOJ Program.

With audio from the Sean Hannity radio program. Today.

via HotAirPundit.

My own question: What do you do when the top cop is corrupt?

Feds to design health insurance for the masses

That isn’t their job.

The U.S. Constitution does not empower the Federal Government to define our responsibilities to purchase anything.

Period.

Wrongful Forfeiture

By your government, fedeeral or local. This is abuse. Plain and simple.

New Healthcare Rules

Which one first?

Got asthma? Prepare to have to use new “greener” inhalers. Namely because the EPA is going to ban the use of over the counter inhalers that will enlarge the ozone holes at the planet’s poles. Which means you are back to prescription-only, more expensive, inhalers.

And then, there’s this:
In a proposed rule from Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the federal government is demanding insurance companies submit detailed health care information about their patients.

I don’t know, sounds strangely familiar to something like, registering all of our bodies, as if we were firearms.

I do not trust these people. At all. How about you?

Benefits Paid To The Dead

Yup, government is still paying tax-funded benefits (fraud and waste) to the dead – and not catching it in time to prevent it.

In this day and age of high technology, cell phone conversation recording, GPS tracking, red-light and speed cameras – all these that can catch every single instance of law breaking ….. the government, with all its workers and smarts ….. keep wasting our money. To the tune on average of $100M to $150M per year. And that is just to federal annuitants.

Where do I sign up? Wait just a minute, are these recipients still voting?

You Would Think We Could Learn From This

From a friend:

WARNING: Some bad language.

The Killing of Kelly Thomas

WARNING: Graphic images. Not for the faint of heart.

Who Are The Workers?

No, really. According to Hoffa, at the Labor Day rally, it’s the union members. He says they are going to “get those SOBs.”

Well, guess what? I work for a living, too. And I’d bet good money conservatives do, too. Whether we are union members or not, is irrelevant.

A call to arms? Take who out?

It’s time to ask yourself, what version of America do you love and want for your children and theirs … and what are you prepared to do towards that end?

The Tea Party is not the enemy. Conservatism is not the enemy.

So who, exactly, is the enemy? One mnajor clue.

They lie to us.

More to the point, not all of us recognize that for what it is.

They want to control us.

I thought most of us love our independence, control of our lives, our choice in our futures/jobs/faith/love. Am I wrong? I don’t believe so. And neither does Rush Limbaugh.
