Honoring Brian Terry

Honoring Brian Terry

Brian Terry’s birthday. If he had not been cut down by bullets provided to a Mexican drug cartel by his own government, Agent Brian Terry would have celebrated his forty-third year on the planet this past Sunday.

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.

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...

The Payback (To Be Continued…)

No good deed goes unpunished, as those who blew the whistle on the Obama administration’s gun-walking debacle can tell you firsthand. Intimidation and obstruction is the norm, and honesty about criminal abuses by the feds is discouraged at all costs. Vince Cefalu is one of several former agents who’ve been punished for daring to question the illegal...
