Court Documents: Fast and Furious Guns Flowed Back into Texas and New Mexico

“I was singled out for punishment even though all my sales to these people were reported as required by law, and the buyers were legally able to buy the firearms,” Garland said. “The ex-police chief, Angelo Vega, the ex-mayor, Eddie Espinoza, and Blas Gutierrez, the village trustee, and everyone else who bought from me, need to be interviewed. They all asked, on the record, ‘Why is Ian here, he had no conspiracy with us? We only used his store, as well as others, to buy from.’ The connection between Arizona’s Fast and Furious is clear, crystal clear, and this is in my pre-sentencing report.”

“I am Australian born, a U.S. citizen, and damn proud of it,” Garland said. “I am fighting because the government’s lawyers held back information that could have exonerated me. Plus, I got sentenced under the wrong guidelines, which gave me a harsher penalty than even the charges warranted.”

According to the El Paso Times, Garland is planning on sharing the information he has regarding the ties of Fast and Furious to El Paso and Nuarez with Mexican authorities.

I would highly recommend reading Diana Washington Valdez’s excellent, full report here.

The Obama administration has a lot of blood on its hands and Congress just does not seem willing to hold anyone in the administration accountable. Hundreds of Mexicans are dead, including a Mexican beauty queen and a Mexican police chief. At least two federal agents are dead. All of these people have died from gunshot wounds from weapons obtained via Operation Fast and Furious.

While much of the news of late on Freedom Outpost has centered on the Bundy Ranch Siege, numerous references have been made to the similarities of Ruby Ridge and Waco. Yet, the biggest missing agency in the Bundy saga is the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). They are, however, at the center of the Fast and Furious scandal. This illegal federal agency also has blood on its hands. It proceeded as if everything was OK, watched the guns walk across the border, and when the whistle was blown on the operation, sought to discredit the whistleblowers, even threatening them.

Eric Holder has been continuing in his capacity as Attorney General for nearly two years since being held in contempt of Congress. Obama continues to hold executive privilege over releasing documents subpoenaed by Congress regarding Fast and Furious. Now, these same guns are coming back across our borders.

I’m fully 100% pro-gun. I don’t think the federal government has any authority when it comes to restricting arms of any type from its people. However, we know what this administration’s goal is. Holder has told us it is to brainwash us against guns. Obama has told us he supports the Second Amendment with his lips, but his pen, policies and actions have demonstrated he is a domestic enemy of the Constitution. The only ones Obama supports having guns are America’s enemies, and he has happily provided them with arms (along with the approval of Congress), that will eventually be used against Americans.

Freedom Outpost

Remember the mountain of lies we have heard from the Obama administration, specifically Attorney General Eric Holder, regarding Operation Fast and Furious? The claim was that they were just doing as the Bush administration in Operation Wide Receiver. In both accounts, I personally don’t agree with the method, but at least to the Bush administration’s credit they did actually attempt to track the weapons. The Obama administration made no such effort. In fact, it has been claimed by a high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative that the Obama administration was knowingly arming the Sinaloa Cartel against rival cartels with these weapons. As a result, the weapons have only been able to be recovered at murder scenes for the most part. Court documents have provided a little more detail on the conspiracy between the cartels and the Columbus, New Mexico conspirators in Operation Fast and Furious.

According to the El Paso Times:

U.S. ground troops going to Poland, defense minister says

Free Republic

Poland and the United States will announce next week the deployment of U.S. ground forces to Poland as part of an expansion of NATO presence in Central and Eastern Europe in response to events in Ukraine. That was the word from Poland’s defense minister, Tomasz Siemoniak, who visited The Post Friday after meeting with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon on Thursday.

Siemoniak said the decision has been made on a political level and that military planners are working out details. There will also be intensified cooperation in air defense, special forces, cyberdefense and other areas. Poland will play a leading regional role, “under U.S. patronage,” he said.

A Pakistani seminary for women linked to the Red Mosque has renamed its library after Osama bin Laden.
The BBC reported, via Religion of Peace:

An Islamic seminary for women in Pakistan’s capital Islamabad has renamed its library after Osama Bin Laden, the former al-Qaeda chief.

The Jamia Hafsa Madrassa is linked to the Red Mosque, known for its alleged links with militants.

A paper sign on one of the doors proclaims Bin Laden a “Shahid” (martyr). Bin Laden was killed in a raid by US commandos in 2011.

Pakistani troops raided the mosque in 2007. Dozens died later in clashes.

The BBC’s Shumaila Jaffrey in Islamabad says there are no chairs or any table in the library – just two computers on the floor.

The library is in a huge complex in the heart of Islamabad, part of which is still being built.

A spokesman for the madrassa said the new name was a tribute to Bin Laden, who was “a hero”.

Oath Keepers from Across the Country Pour into Nevada

Oath-Keepers-250x250

The Daily Sheeple

Despite the fact that Senator Harry Reid has called these Patriots “domestic terrorists”, the militia members and Oath Keepers there to support Cliven Bundy have peacefully assembled in Bunkerville, Nevada for more than a week to protect the rancher from armed federal land grabbers. Although the BLM has allegedly backed off citing “safety concerns,” the surly Senator Reid (who has incidentally been busted with his hand in the $5 million solar power cookie jar) commented, “Well, it’s not over. We can’t have an American people that violate the law and then just walk away from it. So it’s not over.”

Because of statements like Reid’s, a request was made by Oath Keeper’s founder Stewart Rhodes for reinforcements.

Interestingly, shortly after the request for support was made, the Oath Keepers website suffered a mysterious malfunction. Members of the alternative media quickly picked up the reins and made certain that the request was publicized.

In response, Oath Keepers from as far away as Alaska are answering the call put out by founder Stewart Rhodes.

Below is the latest audio update from Stewart in Bunkerville, Nevada.

Top Socialist Economist Says He’s Been Working With Democrats & Obama “For A Long Time”

Gateway Pundit

Have you ever wondered why the Obama Administration’s plans for improving the U.S. economy always seem to fall flat? It just might have something to do with the fact that the Obama Administration has been working with someone who doesn’t like capitalism.

According to an article on France24.com, a well known economist who isn’t fond of capitalism, but promotes Socialism, has been working with the Democrats and the Obama Administration “for a long time”:

In his latest book, French economist Thomas Piketty warns that modern-day capitalism leads to unsustainable levels of inequality. While he is often linked to France’s Socialist Party, his writings have made him unusually popular in the US.

Thomas Piketty’s “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” has only just been translated into English – several weeks ahead of schedule, due to popular demand – and the New York Times’s star columnist Paul Krugman has already described it as “the most important economics book of the year — and maybe of the decade”.

The French economist’s current US book tour is turning into something of a red carpet event. So far this week, he has met the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors as well as Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew.

“The Democratic Party, especially the Obama administration, has been in contact with us and using our findings for a long time,” Piketty told AFP in Washington.

Well, we all knew Obama was a socialist since he was elected.
Remember Joe the Plumber?

Now we know he’s been getting advice from international socialists.
What a shock.

Obama deliberately emboldening America’s enemies

Fox News

All Americans should be aware of some very disturbing events that speak to the state of terrorism, the strength of al Qaeda and our nation’s security. In light of the danger unfolding around us, we also need to question whether or not President Obama’s administration is serious about confronting what is clearly a gathering storm, or whether, in fact, his policies are encouraging those who wish to harm us.

One of the more shocking events illustrating the growing strength of al Qaeda is the release of a video this week showing what CNN reports as “the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years.” It’s what experts think is a recent gathering of the terrorist group’s leadership and more than 100 fighters in Yemen.

Charlie Daniels: Harry Reid Should Be In Jail For ‘Impersonating An American’

Weasel Zippers

An amazing lifelike replica of a slug would be accurate.

Via Examiner:

On Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called supporters of the Bundy ranch “domestic terrorists” and questioned their patriotism. Country music star Charlie Daniels responded the same day with a tweet saying Reid should be in jail for “impersonating an American.”

“Harry Reid you should be put in jail for impersonating an American,” he tweeted.

“Ouch!” the Twitchy staff wrote. A number of people agreed.

“AMEN Charlie!! I second that motion,” one person said.

“Please keep the light shined on this cockroach @SenatorReid & his punk kids too @CharlieDaniels -you’ve got a powerful torch to do it,” another person added.

Others suggested Obama also be thrown in jail. One Twitter user said that Reid would have been hung for his actions in the days of the wild west.

As we reported earlier today, Reid told the Las Vegas Review-Journal those who supported Bundy are “domestic terrorists” armed with fully automatic rifles. Additionally, he accused Bundy of not paying taxes and not recognizing the United States.

The Nevada Democrat also said he spoke with Attorney General Eric Holder, FBI leaders and Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillespie about the situation with the Bundy ranch. While speaking with reporters, he indicated that a task force is being set up, and hinted of further action.

Dick Morris: Dems Attempting to ‘Fix Presidential Elections’

Newsmax

Democrats are bypassing the Constitution as they try to replace the Electoral College with the popular vote as the means by which Americans elect presidents, says Dick Morris.

Supporters of the initiative says it levels the playing field by giving all voters the same amount of power, as opposed to grossly empowering voters in swing states, who enjoy the most attention of presidential candidates during the height of election season.

Morris says it’s a bold-faced attempt to neuter the GOP.

“If this thing passes, Republicans will never again win a presidential race and that’s why all the Democrats are lining up behind it,” Morris told John Bachman and J.D. Hayworth on “America’s Forum” on Newsmax TV.

The legislatures of 10 states and the District of Colombia have passed laws to pledge all of their electoral college representatives to select the winner of the national popular vote, and the measure has already passed one house in 10 other states. It takes 270 Electoral College votes to control the presidential selection. If the 10 states that have adopted the initiative in one house pass it into law, 242 electoral votes would be delegated to the winner of the national popular vote.

Morris, who penned a column on the topic for Newsmax earlier this week, said that Democrats are subverting the Constitutional amendment process with their state-to-state tactics. Constitutional amendments must be ratified in 38 states.

Morris said that if presidents are decided by popular vote, urban areas in traditionally Democratic states would gain new power while the doors to voter fraud would be kicked open.

“First of all, it would [spur] the urban Democratic machines in places like Chicago and D.C. and New York that don’t work too hard at getting out the vote because the states are blue anyway, but now if the popular vote matters, they’ll work like demons in getting out the vote including committing voter fraud,” he said.

“Secondly, right now, if things come down to one state like Florida in the Electoral College, you could look at voter fraud in Florida and probably stop it from ruining the election, but if the fraud could be committed in any precinct in the 50 states and it counts in the popular vote, it’s too large a problem ever to be able to either track or to solve.”

Morris was adamant that this empowerment of urban areas through the popular vote would unfairly benefit Democrats.

“So there’s a reason that of the 20 states that have either adopted this or one House has adopted it, 18 of them are blue states… it’s because this is a conspiracy by the Democratic party to fix presidential elections for the indefinite future,” he said.

Urgent: Should Obamacare Be Repealed? Vote Here Now!

In his own words: Barack Obama on Christianity and Islam

American Thinker

A website called Now The End Begins has compiled 40 comments by Barack Obama on Christianity and Islam. Collectively, they create quite an interesting picture.  I admit that there may be instances of the president speaking as favorably of Christianity as he does of Islam, but I am not aware of them. I do remember in the 2008 campaign that he said he had accepted Jesus Christ as his savior, and that was in response to public awareness of his attendance at Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church, Trinity United. What the president left unsaid is the nature of Jesus as understood in Black Liberation Theology. But that is a discussion for another time.

The list has been reprinted here and here. (hat tip: iOwnTheWorld.com). See what you think:

86M Full-Time Private-Sector Workers Sustain 148M Benefit Takers

Family Security Matters

Buried deep on the website of the U.S. Census Bureau is a number every American citizen, and especially those entrusted with public office, should know. It is 86,429,000.

That is the number of Americans who in 2012 got up every morning and went to work – in the private sector – and did it week after week after week.

These are the people who built America, and these are the people who can sustain it as a free country. The liberal media have not made them famous like the polar bear, but they are truly a threatened species.
