Whither Accountability?

Whither Accountability?

The breathtaking abuse of power by the Obama administration in almost every area of immigration law has obscured its criminality in other areas, particularly its obstruction of justice in the Fast and Furious scheme. Now, Brian Terry’s brother has written a scathing letter calling upon the Justice Department to answer for its many transgressions-and...

Rendering Justice

Rendering Justice

  As most of you know, this website has endeavored to provide information about a subject that-with a few notable exceptions-has been woefully underreported-and at times grossly misrepresented-by the mainstream media, i.e. the obstruction of and corruption of justice at the heart of the Fast and Furious scandal. The countless lives that have been...

May 5th (Saluting An American Pioneer)

President Obama has spent the past week trolling for votes among undocumented Democrats, purportedly as a way of strengthening historic ties between the United States and its neighbor to the south, which-as we’ve pointed out in the past-have always been a little tetchy. While the irony of issuing paeans to Mexico as a patriotic, John...

Hating Breitbart

It’s been over a year since we lost Andrew Breitbart, although it seems much longer, and his departure is just as piercing today, as we confront an administration unencumbered by the rule of law, overseen by a politically neutered Congress, and whose actions are facilitated by a press whose slavish devotion to the left’s...

I refer, of course, to...

Breaking The Law

Breaking The Law

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration throughout its first term has been deception. The compulsion of the President and his surrogates to deny, obfuscate, and blatantly deceive the press corps, their political opponents-even, on occasion, their political allies-and the American public is beyond dispute. That Barack Obama is willing to stand behind his attorney general,...

Fast and Furious Spin

Fast and Furious Spin

Well, it turns out that the “blockbuster” Fortune Magazine piece defaming ATF whistleblower John Dodson, while simultaneously exculpating the architects of Fast and Furious within the Obama administration from blame, was a pack of lies.  Try to contain your shock. It would seem that the statuary above was meant to depict the members of...

Blood on the Border

Blood on the Border

Update: It’s believed by the FBI that the death of this Border Patrol agent was a case of friendly fire. Look for a link to the USA Today article in the comments section of this post.  Yet another deadly attack upon this nation’s Border Patrol agents, the first since the ambush of Brian Terry...
