The number of domestic scandals plaguing the Obama administration may have taken a back seat in the media–for the moment–but House Republicans and other investigators are slowly uncovering the truth.
Representative Trey Gowdy’s House investigation into the Benghazi attacks and their aftermath is scheduled to continue soon with public hearings. Experts predict the current lull in illegal immigration will soon abate, and be replaced with new and larger influxes of Central Americans once the peak heat of the summer months begins to dissipate, making crossing the desert less dangerous. Obamacare is losing so many enrollees that the program may not be able to sustain itself for much longer.
Now another scandal that hasn’t gotten a lot of press lately threatens to make Obama’s summer vacation even worse.
According to Fox News, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Eric Holder’s Justice Department to provide the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee with “a list of documents that are at the center of a long-running battle” over the Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.
The DOJ has until October 1 to produce the information.

Obama has invoked executive privilege to keep the documents confidential, but the judge, an Obama appointee, has ordered that congressional investigators be given at least a list of the documents being withheld.
House Republicans hope that the documents will help explain why the Justice Department “took nearly a year to admit that federal agents had engaged in” the controversial gun-walking operation.
Certainly, all presidents should be allowed to keep secrets–to protect taxpayer privacy, ensure national security, and allow advisers to provide counsel free from concern of public accusations about what is often only a deliberative process, not a decision.
However, for a president who often claims to run the most transparent administration in history, President Obama hides an awful lot from the American people. It’s time for him and his attorney general to come clean.
The lofty motto of the Environmental Protection Agency is “protecting people and the environment.” In practice, however, EPA bureaucrats faithfully protect their own people and preserve the government’s cesspool of manipulation, cover-ups and cronyism.
Just last month, Mark Levin and his vigilant Landmark Legal Foundation went to court to ask federal district Judge Royce Lamberth to sanction the EPA “for destroying or failing to preserve emails and text messages that may have helped document suspected agency efforts to influence the 2012 presidential election.” The motion is part of a larger Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit to force the EPA to release emails and related records from former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and others “who may have delayed the release dates for hot-button environmental regulations until after the Nov. 6, 2012, presidential election.”
Thanks to Levin and Landmark, Jackson and other EPA officials admitted in depositions that they used personal, nongovernmental email accounts to hide communications about official EPA business sent and received on their government-issued BlackBerries and smartphones.
Levin minced no words: “The EPA is a toxic waste dump for lawlessness and disdain for the Constitution.” Not to mention disdain for the public’s right to know. As Levin added: “When any federal agency receives a FOIA request, the statute says it must preserve every significant repository of records, both paper and electronic, that may contain materials that could be responsive to that request.”
Saving the planet? Ha. The leftist-controlled Environmental Corruption Agency is in business only to serve its pals and subvert its political enemies while endangering resource security and sabotaging the deliberative process. Real environmental protection starts with draining this fetid swamp.

Russian strategic nuclear bombers conducted at least 16 incursions into northwestern U.S. air defense identification zones over the past 10 days, an unusually sharp increase in aerial penetrations, according to U.S. defense officials.
The numerous flight encounters by Tu-95 Russian Bear H bombers prompted the scrambling of U.S. jet fighters on several occasions, and come amid heightened U.S.-Russia tensions over Ukraine.
Also, during one bomber incursion near Alaska, a Russian intelligence-gathering jet was detected along with the bombers.

President Barack Obama continues to exacerbate America’s crisis of illegal immigration with threats of executive action to expand his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to cover additional illegals. The program now allows many illegals to stay and work in the United States and reports indicate that Obama is planning to extend the same privileges to up to an additional eight million illegals now in the country.
The president has said that he will issue executive orders to deal with the immigration crisis if Congress fails to act on the problem, a possibility that looks increasingly likely, as the House will recess for the remainder of summer in about a week, according to its current schedule.
This is despite the fact that Americans do not want deportations halted–in fact, polls show that a strong majority of Americans prefer just the opposite.

What would happen if Americans learned that Barack Obama is not just an individual with a history of radical, anti-American associations, but an illegal President and an unindicted felon?
What would happen if Americans learned that the US government, including all members of Congress, and leading figures in American media knew it and deliberately hid the truth from us?
If such a scenario were true, the political system and the media, as we now know it, would collapse, most politicians and journalists would lose their jobs and many would go to jail.
Who in government and the media have the greatest incentive to remain silent and run out the clock on Barack Obama?
