Fast And Furious Court Victory For Judicial Watch

by Tom Fitton.     Government's gun-running op. This is an important story about Judicial Watch’s complicated and complex investigation into the Obama administration’s deadly Operation Fast and Furious scandal.  And this is one story that should be shared far and wide.

Joel Gehrke: Election Eve Dump - Eric Holder Releases Fast And Furious Documents That Got Him Cited for Contempt

Holder Resigned Over Judge's Fast & Furious Ruling

by Barbara Hollingsworth. Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton says he has “no doubt” that a Sept. 23 federal court order requiring the Department of Justice (DOJ) to turn over an index of documents relating to the Fast and Furious scandal by October 22 prompted the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder two days later. “There’s no doubt  ...

John Fund: The Injustice Of Eric Holder

A travesty of justice personified.    Even we were shocked when we researched our new book, “Obama’s Enforcer: Eric Holder’s Justice Department,” at the extent to which Attorney General Eric Holder Jr. has politicized the Justice Department and put the interests of left-wing ideology and his political party ahead of the fair and impartial    ...

John Stossel: Omission Control

The American Pravda.        Reporter Sharyl Attkisson's story sounds familiar to me: A major network got tired of her reports criticizing government. She no longer works there. The CBS correspondent reported on Fast and Furious, the shifting explanation for the Benghazi, Libya, attacks and the bungled rollout of the Obamacare website.   ... MORE

by Michael J. Hurd.      A federal employee decides to write a book on his knowledge of a known government scandal.

No. It’s really happening. Not in a     ... MORE

John Solomon: ATF Seeks To Block Fast And Furious Book

Bureaucracy looks to hide inconvenient truth.     The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is blocking the main whistleblower in the Fast and Furious case from publishing a book, claiming his retelling of the Mexico “gun-walking” scandal will hurt morale inside the embattled law enforcement agency, according to       ...

Dexter Wright: Impeach Eric Holder

Why isn't this a no-brainer?    As the Washington media continues to trip over the stumbling blocks of administration scandals and echoes of Watergate bounce off the buildings across the Potomac River, the question comes to mind: Will there be impeachment hearings this summer as there were in the Summer of '73? There may indeed  ... MORE

Uncle Sam Wants You ... Under His Thumb

by Jim Yardley.      It's really difficult to keep track of the many ways that the Obama administration is chipping away at the freedoms and independence that were the foundations of our nation, bequeathed to us as a birthright.

Tim Brown: Ignorance & Mismanagement At DHS

Rick Moran: Gun Control Efforts Are Dying In Congress

Not with a bang, but with a whimper.      A sure sign that nothing much will happen on the gun control front is that President Obama has barely lifted a finger to personally lobby lawmakers to pass his agenda. And he certainly hasn't been anywhere near the negotiations that ended up bringing 4 bills to the Senate Judiciary Committee - three of which ... MORE

Gene Healy: The Five Worst Op-Eds of 2012

The New York Times comes on strong.  For three years running, I've closed the Old Year with a seasonal burst of bile, my annual Five Worst Op-Eds column. As before, this year's malicious listicle rewards bad arguments and bad writing, with extra points for warped values. 5. Eric Posner, "The World Doesn't Love the First Amendment,"    ... MORE

Jeff Lipkes: Taking Down The Second Amendment

Fast & Furious connects to the Trayvon Martin case. Very soon after his inauguration, Barack Obama decided to move ahead with plans to use the horrific number of deaths in the Mexican drug wars as a pretext for new gun control laws. On March 26, 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder proposed a ban on "assault weapons" in order to reduce violence ...

Star Parker: Racial Politics Thicker Than Justice

Black Caucus circles the wagons around Holder.   When the House voted last Thursday to find Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress, members of the Congressional Black Caucus walked out. Why is the Black Caucus trying to make this about race? It’s about Holder’s refusal to turn over Justice Department documents     ...
