Fast & Furious Approaches Full Boil

For the most part the “mainstream” media has attempted to downplay or ignore the Obama Regime’s Mexican gun-running operation. This is fortunate, because it will delay the pot boiling over onto the public until closer to the election. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has been showing much more curiosity than Obama’s media enablers, who already find themselves having to report on it.

CBS, which to its credit took a leading role in lifting the rock on the operation, is even beginning to shine a light on its purpose: to erode our precious Second Amendment liberties.
Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation “Fast and Furious” to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales. …

On July 14, 2010 after ATF headquarters in Washington D.C. received an update on Fast and Furious, ATF Field Ops Assistant Director Mark Chait emailed Bill Newell, ATF’s Phoenix Special Agent in Charge of Fast and Furious:

“Bill – can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same (licensed gun dealer) and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks.”

On Jan. 4, 2011, as ATF prepared a press conference to announce arrests in Fast and Furious, Newell saw it as “(A)nother time to address Multiple Sale on Long Guns issue.” And a day after the press conference, Chait emailed Newell: “Bill–well done yesterday… (I)n light of our request for Demand letter 3, this case could be a strong supporting factor if we can determine how many multiple sales of long guns occurred during the course of this case.”

Gun dealers were strong-armed into providing weapons to Mexican drug cartels against their own judgment so that the government could use the inevitably ensuing bloodshed as a pretext to curtail their right to do business — and our right to defend ourselves from that same rogue government.

The only thing more outrageous than the Obama Regime’s actions in Fast & Furious is its anti-constitutional motive, which can best be described as treasonous.

No informed person worthy to be called American would give these fifth columnists another four years to destroy the USA from within. Fortunately keeping people uninformed may not be as easy as it was in 2008.

The Department of Social Justice continues to stonewall. But:
“In light of the evidence, the Justice Department’s refusal to answer questions about the role Operation Fast and Furious was supposed to play in advancing new firearms regulations is simply unacceptable,” Rep. [Darrell] Issa [R-CA] told CBS News.

Those among the public who haven’t degenerated into mindless sheep won’t accept it either.


CA: Resident shoots and kills suspect during home-invasion robbery: "A resident shot and killed a 19-year-old robbery suspect Wednesday night during a home-invasion robbery attempt on the south side of the city, police said. fficers responding to an emergency call in the 400 block of South 35th Street found the dead man inside a house, along with a second man injured by gunfire, Lt. Bisa French said. hose shot were part of a group that tried to storm the house a little past 6 p.m. during a home-invasion robbery attempt. "These two people, along with some other suspects, attempted to rob the victim," French said. "But the victim fought back." The group, carrying firearms, managed to get through the front door, while several residents were home. Evidence suggests the resident who shot the intruders fought with them before gunfire erupted. None of the residents were seriously hurt. The surviving suspect remains in custody at the hospital, French said. A doctor pronounced Robby Ross Jr. dead at a nearby hospital."

NC: Teen arrested after clerk turns tables during robbery attempt: "For the second time in a month a Wilmington store clerk has turned the tables on a would-be robber. The owner of the store says the man who allegedly tried to rob the store is "lucky to be alive." Police say Martin fumbled as he pulled out a gun giving a store clerk a chance to pull a gun of his own. The clerk did not shoot, unlike a foiled robbery attempt last month at another store. Homid says the clerk should have at least wounded Martin. Martin escaped with his life, but not from police. Officers caught him in woods near the store and charged with attempted armed robbery."
