Latest Gunwalker News: Will Holder Take The Fall?

Bob Owens says the sh*t’s getting real for the DOJ with the latest discovery: More ‘Gunwalker’ Emails Suggest Gun-Control Conspiracy:

Congressman Darrell Issa and Senator Charles Grassley continue to unravel this plot. Along with the emails proving that the ATF was using “walked” guns to justify stricter gun laws, they sent a letter to embattled Attorney General Eric Holder asking the following:

  1. Is there any other evidence suggesting that ATF of DOJ officials discussed how Operation Fast and Furious could be used to justify additional regulatory authorities for the ATF? IF so, are there any such indications prior to July 14, 2010?
  2. Rather than collecting additional information on law-abiding gun owners, what steps have you taken to ensure that the ATF is better able to act on the information it already possesses to interdict the flow of firearms to criminals?

If most of the claims regarding this scandal are substantiated — and developing evidence certainly indicates a high likelihood of that happening — we face a watershed moment in American history. Every component of federal law enforcement within the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security — and most likely with the knowledge of the Department of State — undertook a massive operation designed to facilitate the flow of thousands of weapons into the hands of some of the most vicious criminal organizations on Earth. These operations likely took place with the full knowledge of cabinet level officials, and possibly the White House. The weapons “walked” were used to gun down innocent men, women, and children, not to mention the brave police officers and soldiers in each nation trying to wage peace. It demands a criminal investigation and the possible RICO prosecutionof dozens of federal law enforcement officers, supervisors, senior management, political appointees, and possibly elected officials. Our federal law enforcement apparatus became a criminal conspiracy. This was an assault on the democratic rule of law and the very essence of our republic.

A political consultant I met at the Palin premiere in Independence, MO, last night told me that in his opinion, with the media’s help, the gunwalking scandal is going to be a whitewash with maybe a few low level ATF and DOJ staffers taking the fall for the operation. As Bob Owens reports in Pravda Syndrome: MSM Can’t Stop Lying About ‘Gunwalker’, that would seem to be a valid opinion, but

Unfortunately for the administration, however, even the most loyal of media sycophants can’t cover a scandal as large as Gunwalker appears to be. The public is too well-educated, the evidence of probable criminality too blatant and widespread. The administration’s apparent plan to use gun violence to spur support for gun control efforts has become Watergate with a body count, and no amount of media deception or spin, or party misdirection, can save them from the consequences of their actions.

It’s getting bad, and going to get worse, folks.

Big Government: Grassley And Issa Should Include Obama and Clinton In Operation Fast And Furious Probe:

In the spring of 2009, both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blamed American gun-running for violence in Mexico’s drug wars.

“WH Insider” weighs in after laying low for weeks, via Ulster Man’s FB page:
‎”WH actively preparing for possible EH resignation. Tied in w/GG. JC set up to keep firewall in place. SIGNIFICANT details to break soon. Obama openly accuses senior cabinet official of acting against him on this. Another outburst. “Screaming at adviser” Critical help from media paying dividends. This WH in very serious trouble. More to come next week. You can share this if you like – want some to know. -INSIDER

JC?

That would be James Cole, who happens to be one of Gunwalker’s “Dirty Dozen”.

MORE about Cole, who was appointed in Dec, 2010, here:

President Barack Obama bypassed the Senate Wednesday to make six recess appointments, including a deputy attorney general whose links to the insurance giant American International Group had stalled his confirmation.

Obama first nominated James Cole to the No. 2 Justice Department post in May. But Republican lawmakers blocked his confirmation in part because of questions about his role as an independent consultant for AIG before its near collapse and government bailout in 2008. Senate Republicans complained that confidentiality agreements prevented them from receiving answers about his work for the company.

Others, including Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, the top Republican on the judiciary committee, raised questions about statements Cole made suggesting he supported trying terror suspects in U.S. courts rather than military tribunals.

Cole is a close friend of Attorney General Eric Holder and a partner at a private Washington law firm. His appointment is one of six Obama announced from his vacation in Hawaii, including ambassadors to Turkey and Syria.

From the US Consulate General in Mexico:

July 15, 2011

Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens

Threats of violence against U.S. government interests in Chihuahua

The U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez is issuing this Emergency Message for U.S. citizens in the state of Chihuahua (“Emergency Messages” were formerly known as “Warden Messages”).  The Consulate has distributed the following message to our staff:

Mexican authorities have captured key members of the cartels active in Juarez. These successes also bring with them the potential for an increase in violence. The cartels may seek to retaliate and increase their attacks against rival cartel members, Mexican law enforcement and/or the public in general.

Information has come to light that suggests a cartel may be targeting the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez or U.S. Ports of Entry.  In the past, cartels have been willing to utilize car bombs in attacks.  We ask American citizens to remain vigilant.

If the Consulate should receive any credible threat information that provides a specific time and place, that information will be disseminated immediately.

U.S. citizen victims of crime or their families are urged to contact the American Citizens Services unit of the Consulate for advice or assistance.  During regular work hours, the American Citizens Services unit of the Consulate can be reached at (656) 227-3411, by fax at (656) 227-3264 or by email at cdjamericancitizens@state.gov.  In the event of an after-hours serious emergency, the duty officer may be reached at (656) 327-7877.

Americans residing or traveling in Chihuahua are encouraged to enroll in the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) and to update their contact information online or at the U.S. Consulate General in Ciudad Juarez.  Enrollment in STEP may be done well in advance of travel.  For more information on STEP or to enroll, please visit the Department of State’s Consular Affairs website:  https://travelregistration.state.gov.  We also encourage you to download our free iPhone App, Smart Traveler.  The app allows you to enroll in STEP and to review information on countries around the world.  The U.S. Consulate’s website is http://ciudadjuarez.usconsulate.gov.   You can also like us on Facebook to receive emergency messages and routine updates.  Our pages are U.S. Consulate Juarez- American Citizen Services and Communidad Fronteriza.  U.S. citizens should also consult the Country Specific Information for Mexico and the Travel Alert for Mexico at the Department’s website: http://travel.state.gov.  The same information is available in the iPhone Application.

    I’m starting to think that the sheer volume of lies, mendacity, and law-breaking by this administration will take away from the impact of this story, even if all the facts see the light of day. For those who actually care, its one more in a parade of horribles inflicted upon us by this administration; for those who are still sleeping, the coverage that it is likely to get won’t rouse them from their slumber; and for those who are still basking in the euphoria of Obama worship, this will only be an occaision to declare in a fit of pique that “BUSH WAS WORSE!!! NO BLOOD FOR OIL!!!’ or some equally shallow and silly trope.

  2. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX Says:

    Read somewhere yesterday (and I can’t remember where – sorry) that one of the guns that took out a Mexican law official was linked back to Texas. There is also the tie-in to ATF goings-on in Florida.

    Yes, this could be HUGE – if it were a Republican in office, and IF the media wasn’t on the side of the liberals. CBS seems to be coming out from under the thrall of Obama; it will be interesting to see what develops….

  3. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX Says:

    Ooooh, girl – you are at the top of AoSHQ’s sidebar!!!!!! Way to go -

  4. Dumpsterjuice Says:

    And Mexico wants the responsible parties to stand trial in Mexico, you can’t blame them. We should surrender them AFTER they stand trial and serve sentences here.

  5. Carlos Says:

    Actually, Dumpsterjuice, I wouldn’t mind seeing Eric the Bad and Duh-1 stand trial in Mexico first, and doing their time in a Mexican jail.

    Poetic justice and all that, ya know.

  6. Truman North Says:

    I try to keep something from the lefty thuggery site on the Ace sidebar pretty regularly.

  7. Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup » Pirate's Cove Says:

    [...] last, but not least, Nice Deb has the latest Gunwalker [...]

  8. Carlos Says:

    Do they have the ice skates out in Hell yet? If they don’t, you know Holder hasn’t taken the fall for Obhammud yet.

    Nor is he likely to. I’ll be more than happy to eat those words if I’m wrong.
