Video: KC Highway Shootings Suspect In Custody

kansas-city-shooter

It’s been nerve-wracking driving through the Kansas City these past few weeks, but area commuters now have a reason to relax.  A suspect in the random highway shootings that have put city residents on edge since early March, is in custody.

The string of at  least 20 disturbing highway shootings didn’t kill anyone, but three people were hit by the gunfire.

Kansas City Police Chief Darryl Forte announced the news Thursday night at a brief news conference, telling reporters that more details would be released on Friday.

A KMBC 9 News photojournalist videotaped the man being brought into custody at  Kansas City Police Headquarters in downtown Kansas City just before 7 p.m. The man’s name has not yet been released, but police told KMBC that he was their suspect.
Investigators executed a search warrant at 136th Street and Spring Street in Grandview, Mo., on Thursday afternoon.  Several investigators remained on the scene through the evening.

 It appeared the investigators spent a large amount of time checking out a green sedan behind a building.  The sedan was later pulled away by police.

 Police had said 12 out of at least 20 recent random highway shootings across the metro were connected.  Most of the shootings happened on highways in an area near the Grandview Triangle, where 71 Highway, Interstate 435, Interstate 49 and Interstate 470 connect.

Shootings were reported in Kansas City, Mo., Blue Springs, Lee’s Summit and Leawood, Kan.  Some of the shootings also happened on Interstate 70.
The shootings also happened mostly in the evenings after 7:00 pm.
I go through the Grandview triangle three times a week – during the evening – to bring my daughter to dance class – so you can imagine my relief that this freak is off the streets. That is – if they’ve got the right guy, which they most likely do.

Iran Deal Another Historic Mistake By Obama Administration (Video)

A deal with Iran that has America’s enemies pumping their fists in the air and Israel seeking other allies for support – it’s another historic first for this God-awful president.

The sucker’s deal our brilliant Sec of State deal brokered: We give the Iranians sanctions relief and Iran gets to retain its full capacity to enrich uranium as they defiantly continue their quest for a nuclear bomb. The Iranians, as you can imagine,  are thrilled, and Obama’s left-wing sycophants are congratulating Kerry for his “enormous achievement.”  

The leader of the country Iran vowed to wipe off the map, is decidedly not thrilled…

Iran Is Playing Obama, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal told Bloomberg News. The Saudi royal often “floats trial balloons on behalf of the members of his family who rule his country, and they consider him free to make impolitic statements they believe but cannot publicly endorse”.

“There’s no confidence in the Obama administration doing the right thing with Iran,” he told me, with a directness that would make Benjamin Netanyahu blush. “We’re really concerned — Israel, Saudi Arabia, the Middle East countries — about this.”

It is quite something for a Saudi royal to state baldly that his country is part of a tacit alliance with Israel, but Saudi leaders, like Israel’s leaders, are frantic with worry that an overeager Obama will accede to Iran’s desire to become a threshold state, one whose nuclear program is so advanced that it would only need several weeks to assemble a deliverable weapon. Alwaleed, like Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, believes that Iran, in its ongoing negotiations with the world’s major powers, will pocket whatever sanctions relief it gets without committing to ending its nuclear program. “Why are they offering relief?” he asked. “Keep the pressure on. Sanctions are what brought about the negotiations to begin with! Why not keep the pressure up?”

Obama, Alwaleed says, is a man who is in desperate political straits and needs a victory — any victory — to right his presidency. “Obama is in so much of a rush to have a deal with Iran,” he said. “He wants anything. He’s so wounded. It’s very scary. Look, the 2014 elections are going to begin. Within two months they’re going to start campaigning. Thirty-nine members of his own party in the House have already moved away from him on Obamacare. That’s scary for him.”

Alwaleed believes a stronger president would have the willpower to say no to a flawed deal with Iran. Like the Israelis, the Saudis believe a flawed deal is one in which Iran isn’t forced to put its nuclear program in reverse, by shuttering facilities and mothballing centrifuges. (Alwaleed is not a Saudi government official, but he often floats trial balloons on behalf of the members of his family who rule his country, and they consider him free to make impolitic statements they believe but cannot publicly endorse).

Israeli leaders indicated that they would be looking for allies elsewhere, via Haaretz:

Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman said that Israel would act independently of the deal reached with Iran, adding that all options remain on the table.

“We have to be serious enough to take responsibility for our fate,” he told Israel Radio. “As always, all options are on the table.”

Lieberman called the deal a victory for Iran’s religious leaders.

“Obviously when you look at the smiles of the Iranians over there in Geneva, you realize that this is the Iranians’ greatest victory, maybe since the Khomeini revolution, and it doesn’t really change the situation within Iran,” said Lieberman. Referring to Iran’s supreme religious leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, he said “Khamenei and the Revolutionary Guard are the true rulers, not [Iranian President Hassan] Rohani.”

Lieberman also indicated that Israel would be seeking other allies than the U.S. and would have to start “taking responsibility regardless of the American stance.”

“We have no alternative other than the United States, but Israel must look into new directions in addition to the U.S.,” he said. “We must take responsibility regardless of the stance of the Americans, or of others. We must make our own independent decisions.”

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon denounced the agreement as an “excellent deal for Iran and a dangerous one for the world, neutralizing the sanctions instead of the centrifuges. The agreement does not dismantle even a single centrifuge or reactor, but is a critical blow to sanctions.”

Meanwhile in Iran:

The Iranian government stuck it to President Barack Obama today with government run television broadcasting a “Down with America” celebration during live coverage of the return of Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. The Iranian minister returned from Geneva after completing a deal on Iran’s nuclear program with the U.S. and leading world powers, according to a BBC reporter.

Ali Hamedani, Persian reporter for the BBC, posted on Twitter:

Buzzfeed reports that the US was in secret talks with Iran for a year -

Israeli officials knew they were being kept in the dark as the U.S. conducted secret talks with Iran, and the knowledge that the White House was “going behind Israel’s back” was one of the key sources of tension between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Barack Obama, according to a senior Israeli minister and other Israeli officials.

“We did not know from the beginning, but we knew, we had intelligence that these meetings were happening,” said the Israeli minister, who spoke to BuzzFeed by phone from his Jerusalem office. He said that a “friend in the Gulf” shared intelligence with Israel that the meetings were taking place, and urged Israel to find out more. “I would like to say we knew the content of the talks, but we didn’t. What we knew was that the U.S. was choosing not to tell us about them and that was very worrying.”

In an oped in The Weekly Standard, John Bolton called the deal, “abject surrender.”

Undoubtedly, an Israeli strike during the interim deal would be greeted with outrage from all the expected circles.  But that same outrage, or more, would also come further down the road.  In short, measured against the expected reaction even in friendly capitals, there is never a “good” time for an Israeli strike, only bad and worse times.  Accordingly, the Geneva deal does not change Israel’s strategic calculus even slightly, unless the Netanyahu government itself falls prey to the psychological warfare successfully waged so far by the ayatollahs. That we will know only as the days unfold.

Israel still must make the extremely difficult judgment whether it will stand by as Iran maneuvers effortlessly around a feckless and weak White House, bolstering its economic situation while still making progress on the nuclear front, perhaps less progress on some aspects of its nuclear work than before the deal, but more on others.

And what’s this? Kerry: Nuke deal doesn’t give Iran right to enrich; Iran: World recognized our right to enrich

The ink isn’t even dry on the temporary Iran nuclear deal and it already has that distinct “passed it to find out what’s in it” scent.

Cruz weighs in: Iranian Nuclear Deal Correctly Identified as “Historic Mistake”

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) released a statement that concurred with Netanyahu’s take.

“According to the interim agreement regarding Iran’s nuclear program that was reached this weekend in Geneva, not one centrifuge will be destroyed. Not one pound of enriched uranium will leave Iran. Not one American unjustly detained in Iran’s notorious prisons will be released. But Iran will start to receive, in a matter of days, $7 billion in relief from international economics sanctions.

“All the smiling embraces between diplomats after the interim deal was signed notwithstanding, the Iranian regime remains a brutal and oppressive dictatorship that pursues nuclear weapons for the purpose of dominating the Middle East and threatening America and our allies, notably Israel. President Obama and Secretary Kerry should reconsider their policy of rapprochement with Iran that is dismaying to Jerusalem and encouraging to Tehran. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu predicted this agreement would be a ‘very, very bad deal’ and has now correctly identified it as an ‘historic mistake.’ Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted his satisfaction as the ‘breaking down the architecture for sanctions has begun.’ The administration has gotten it backwards and it is time to reverse course before any further damage is done.”

Boston Massacre: Up to 12 Dead, 60 Wounded As Explosions Rock Boston Marathon Finish Line

BH6kFLDCQAAcSDO

Russell Goldman of ABC News is live-blogging the news about the bomb explosions that rocked the Boston Marathon finish line. Live-streaming video at the site.

4:34 pm ET: 400 Massachusetts National Guard soldiers were on the scene for the marathon.

4:24 pm ET: A Federal law enforcement authority confirms to ABC News this was an intentional bombing, using small portable explosive devices.

4:21 pm ET: Boston Police confirms they have found three more suspicious devices. One has been rendered safe.

 4:13 pm ET:  The FAA has issued a temporary flight restriction over the area of explosion.

4:11 pm ET: Boston Fire Department to brief media at 4:30pm  at Westin Hotel.

4:09 pm ET: Tufts Medical Center confirms that 9 victims have been taken there.

4:06 pm ET: Law enforcement authorities tell ABC News they are testing smoke and materials at scene for chemical substances.

4:05 pm ET: Boston police confirm at least 22 injured, 2 dead.

Those numbers will probably rise.

The Daily Mail is already reporting that up to a dozen people have been killed by the bomb explosions that rocked the Boston Marathon finish line.

Up to a dozen people have been killed in a deadly explosion and up to 60 people have been injured after two large explosions went off near the finish line of the famous Boston Marathon today, leaving behind a scene of unimaginable carnage.

Law enforcement sources told the New York Post of the body count, and said that the first explosion happened at the Fairmont Hotel.

Eyewitnesses at the scene said there were two loud explosions about five seconds apart, and emergency vehicles crowded the scene.

Witness Dave Weigel said via Twitter minutes after the explosion: ‘I saw people’s legs blown off. Horrific. Two explosions. Runners were coming in and saw unspeakable horror.’

Police told the Boston Globe that are they still finding ‘secondary devices,’ and pleading with anyone still in the area to leave at once.

A controlled explosion was set for outside the city library.

About My blog’s Suspension

All I know is that it was due to a “violation of terms of service”. I never received any kind of warning about the alleged violation, and I’ve yet to receive an explanation from WordPress.com for what happened. As far as I know, it may have been nothing more than an internet glitch.

I’d like to thank everyone who lobbied WordPress to get my blog back online – the news spread on Twitter like wildfire…during the dinner hour while I was celebrating my husband’s birthday. It was almost impossible to keep up with all the helpful tweets.

Several valiant bloggers came to my aid, as well:

The Other McCain’s chivalrous Smitty was the first to leap into action: Free @NiceDeb !!!

NiceDeb is one of the solid blogs on the right, and a friend of this blog for years. ToS violation my left foot. She’s being harassed.

Wasn’t that nice?

The awesome and loveable Doug Ross is never at a loss for words: Fascists-In-Training Just Knocked Conservative Blogger @NiceDeb Off the Air. Here’s How You Can Help!

My guess is that some miscreant, wannabe-fascists on the left reported bogus “Terms of Service” (TOS) violations to get her all-too-accurate commentary kicked off the air.

That could be…but I don’t have any information to confirm or deny it. Hit the link for a photo of me smacking him in the chops at BlogCon, last Spring. If I posted it, here, I might be violating my terms of service.

The Camp of the Saints’ ever vigilant Bob Belvedere joined the chorus: ALERT: @NiceDeb Needs Our Help [Updated]

As did my blogging sister just a conservative girl at Potluck: Fellow PotLuck Blogger Has Nice Deb Blog Removed by WordPress:

Nice Deb has had her blog suspended for reasons that have not been made clear to her.  If you go to her blog you just get the message:

nicedeb.wordpress.com is no longer available.

This blog has been archived or suspended for a violation of our Terms of Service.
For questions or concerns, contact WordPress.com Support.

I suggest you contact them to ask them why they would take down a blog that has been up for five years or so without so much as an emailed explanation to the reasons why.

Now, I read her blog almost daily, I have never seen anything on there that would violate these terms:

And Smitty was linked by Instapundit!

It wasn’t long after Insty linked that my blog reappeared online. Hmmmm!

Thank you so much, all of you. Now I feel bad for not blogging at Potluck for how long, now? I’m ashamed to say….Years?

Don’t feel bad – I haven’t had time for my own blog, Leftwing Institute for Civil Discourse aka Moonbattracker, all month, either. There just isn’t enough time in the day for me to do everything I want to do online.

Actually, I have another post I’d like to do, here,  tonight. Charles B. tipped me a good one. But it’s after midnight and I have to get to bed. It will have to wait until morning.

MORE:

I neglected to thank the Twitchy Team for coming to my defense: Blogger Nice Deb sent to WordPress gulag; Conservatives rally in support; Update: blog restored

Confirmed: Family Research Council Gunman Carried a Chick Fil A Bag

Daily Mail: Local and federal investigators work to gather evidence after a security guard was shot in the arm at the headquarters of the Family Research Council August 15, 2012 in Washington, DC.

Big Government reported:

A gunman, posing as an intern, entered the The Family Research Council and shot a security guard. The FRC is a conservative pro-life and pro-traditional marriage organization which has been labelled as a hate group by leftists and gay rights organization in recent days. The gunman may have had more sinister motives toward FRC employees.

A source told FoxNews.com that the suspect “made statements regarding their policies, and then opened fire with a gun striking a security guard.” The gunman may also have been carrying a bag from Chick-fil-A, a restaurant that has been attacked by those on the left because of its owner’s stance against gay marriage and has been all over the news in recent weeks.

FoxNews.com reports the “gunman entered the lobby of the organization’s Chinatown headquarters around 10:45 and expressed disagreement with the conservative group’s policy positions” and “when the guard, who was not identified, asked him where he was going, he opened fire, according to police.”

Sources told FoxNews.com that after the guard took away the shooter’s gun, the suspect said, “Don’t shoot me, it was not about you, it was what this place stands for.”

“The security guard here is a hero, as far as I’m concerned,” D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier said. ”He did his job. The person never made it past the front.”

According to FoxNews.com, the guard was shot in the arm and is in stable condition while the  gunman was being questioned by the FBI. The shooting is being treated as a case of domestic terrorism.

An NBC reporter on Twitter has since confirmed #FRC shooter had #Chik-Fil-A promotional materials in backpack, along with 2 loaded 15-round ammo clips.

The Daily Mail reported:

The Family Research Council is a right-wing, conservative lobbying organistaion that is against abortion, euthanasia and same-sex marriages.

‘The police are investigating this incident,’ said FRC President Tony Perkins in a statement.

‘Our first concern is with our colleague who was shot today. Our concern is for him and his family.’

The council was also recently in the news when Mr. Perkins defended the chief executive of restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A, who made comments critical of gay marriage.

‘All Chick-Fil-A did was refuse to be bullied by the politically correct crowd,’ said Mr. Perkins.

The former president of the Family Research Council and former Republican presidential candidate, Gary Bauer also said at the time: ‘The values of the Family Research Council—pro-life and pro-family—are shared by millions of Americans of many backgrounds, and should not make anyone a target of violence.’

It’s about time conservative think tanks start labeling left wing groups it doesn’t like as “hate groups” – and I would include The Southern Poverty Law Center, and Human Rights Campaign among them.

The unhinged left is and always will be more of a danger to civil society than any of the conservative groups they demonize.

In 2010, the Southern Poverty Law Center named the FRC a “hate group” for opposing the homosexual agenda, along with several other Christian organizations.

The Human Rights Campaign also called the Christian organization a “hate group” for disagreeing with gay marriage.

Commenters at the HRC article blamed the pro-gay group for the shooting.

“Your article has lead to a shooting at the Family Research Center… you should feel disgusted with yourself, (sic)” wrote “Breitbart_Lives.”

“Well, HRC, you better hope you can prove all your claims against FRC because inciting Riot or Inciting Domestic Terrorism by stating inflammatory false information would be great grounds for a Lawsuit (sic),” wrote “Bill Steward.”

This is a developing story. Updates will be provided as they are available.

Update: Romney says he is “appalled” by the shooting, while Obama remains conspicuously silent. More here.

Megyn Kelly reported on her show, earlier today, that the case is bring called domestic terrorism:

Small Wars Journal Publishes “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland” – War-gaming Against the Tea Party

You’ve all heard the rumors…so it must be asked: is the US Army War-gaming a military response to Tea Party?

The influential  Small Wars Journal published the article by Gen. Wesley Clark disciple, COL Kevin Benson: Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland: A “Vision” of the Future.

Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars looked into the story – and it is as bad as you think:

Bringing the War Back Home. “Full Spectrum Operations in the Homeland”: Getting the military to start preparing for the violent repression of its own citizenry. US Army “deep thinker” creates an “enemy” out of the Tea Parties & “extremist militias.” “Red Teaming” from an Ignorance-Inspired Faulty Premise.

Before we plunge into this column, a little background is in order. The first thing for the reader to understand is where this ill-thought, offensive and dangerous article appeared:

The Small Wars Journal (SWJ) is an electronic journal and website focusing on counter-insurgency. Aside from its online journal, SWJ hosts an accompanying blog and the Small Wars Council discussion board. Other site features include an online reference library, recommended reading and event listings.

Contributing authors to SWJ include Gary Anderson, Matt Armstrong, Robert Bunker, Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell, General Martin Dempsey, Thomas Hammes, Jim Gant, Gian Gentile, Robert Haddick, Frank Hoffman, David Kilcullen, Robert Killebrew, Peter Mansoor, William “Mac” McCallister, John Nagl, Malcolm Nance, John Sullivan, Bing West, Paul Yingling and Michael Yon among others.

The title Small Wars Journal is a reference to the 1940 Marine Corps Small Wars Manual, which used “small wars” as a catch-all term for unconventional and guerrilla warfare, also encompassing foreign internal defense (FID), military operations other than war (MOOTW) and military operations in urban terrain (MOUT). — Wikipedia.

To say that the Small Wars Journal is influential in current military thinking circles is an understatement.

The scenario that supposedly leads to a tea party insurrection….

The Great Recession of the early twenty-first century lasts far longer than anyone anticipated. After a change in control of the White House and Congress in 2012, the governing party cuts off all funding that had been dedicated to boosting the economy or toward relief. The United States economy has flatlined, much like Japan’s in the 1990s, for the better part of a decade. By 2016, the economy shows signs of reawakening, but the middle and lower-middle classes have yet to experience much in the way of job growth or pay raises. Unemployment continues to hover perilously close to double digits, small businesses cannot meet bankers’ terms to borrow money, and taxes on the middle class remain relatively high. A high-profile and vocal minority has directed the public’s fear and frustration at nonwhites and immigrants. After almost ten years of race-baiting and immigrant-bashing by right-wing demagogues, nearly one in five Americans reports being vehemently opposed to immigration, legal or illegal, and even U.S.-born nonwhites have become occasional targets for mobs of angry whites.

In May 2016 an extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement takes over the government of Darlington, South Carolina, occupying City Hall, disbanding the city council, and placing the mayor under house arrest. Activists remove the chief of police and either disarm local police and county sheriff departments or discourage them from interfering. In truth, this is hardly necessary. Many law enforcement officials already are sympathetic to the tea party’s agenda, know many of the people involved, and have made clear they will not challenge the takeover. The militia members are organized and have a relatively well thought-out plan of action.

Hokay. Several things he gets dangerously wrong right off the bat…uh, if there’s a change in the White House in 2012, a Republican is now in charge, so wouldn’t the “insurrection”  most likely going to be coming from the left? Any budget cuts that are made are not going to inspire the tea party crowd to go full metal jacket. That angry mob would be the already revolutionary Occupy crowd. Is this guy nuts?  “A vocal minority directs the public’s fear and frustration at nonwhites and immigrants? ”  Excuse me – the people trying to stoke a race war are the racialist loons on the left.  “U.S.-born nonwhites have become occasional targets for mobs of angry whites.” The exact opposite is happening RIGHT NOW! Mobs of angry young blacks have been attacking whites in alarming numbers. There is simply no reason to believe that there will soon be mobs of angry white racists out there attacking blacks and Hispanics. It’s hard to believe a supposedly intelligent expert in insurrections could get so many things wrong.

With Darlington under their control, militia members quickly move beyond the city limits to establish “check points” – in reality, something more like choke points — on major transportation lines. Traffic on I-95, the East Coast’s main north-south artery; I-20; and commercial and passenger rail lines are stopped and searched, allegedly for “illegal aliens.” Citizens who complain are immediately detained. Activists also collect “tolls” from drivers, ostensibly to maintain public schools and various city and county programs, but evidence suggests the money is actually going toward quickly increasing stores of heavy weapons and ammunition. They also take over the town web site and use social media sites to get their message out unrestricted.

When the leaders of the group hold a press conference to announce their goals, they invoke the Declaration of Independence and argue that the current form of the federal government is not deriving its “just powers from the consent of the governed” but is actually “destructive to these ends.” Therefore, they say, the people can alter or abolish the existing government and replace it with another that, in the words of the Declaration, “shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.” While mainstream politicians and citizens react with alarm, the “tea party” insurrectionists in South Carolina enjoy a groundswell of support from other tea party groups, militias, racist organizations such as the Ku Klux Klan, anti-immigrant associations such as the Minutemen, and other right-wing groups. At the press conference the masked militia members’ uniforms sport a unit seal with a man wearing a tricorn hat and carrying a musket over the motto “Today’s Minutemen.” When a reporter asked the leaders who are the “red coats” the spokesman answered, “I don’t know who the redcoats are…it could be federal troops.” Experts warn that while these groups heretofore have been considered weak and marginal, the rapid coalescence among them poses a genuine national threat.

Okay, again, the Tea Party would not have anything to do with the KKK or other white supremacist groups. They are anti-racist/fascist/socialist  so  those people are persona non-grata  and every tea partier knows it.

Ex KKK Grand Dragon David Duke, the American Nazi Party, US Border Guard, and White Revolution have all endorsed Occupy, however.

That is only a small snippet from the report, but the whole thing is based on a ridiculously faulty premise.. See SSI for the rest.

The question is — how could this retired Col. have everything so ass-backwards?

Is it because he really doesn’t know shit from shinola, or does he know something about how things are going to look in the not too distant future, but cannot share the truth  with the general public, so he replaces the truth with common left wing myths to fool people with? The tea party is the natural enemy of Marxists/Statists/Socialists/Communists/progressives.  Keep that in mind.

It’s all very unsettling.

Trevor Loudon Vets The President: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection (Video)

Via Noisy Room:

On Thursday, July 19th, Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival held a critical National Press Club event: The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection. At this pivotal time, we face a national election that may well determine the fate of our great country. And as America goes, so goes the world.

Thus, it is not an exaggeration to describe this as the most important press conference in U.S. history, because it explicitly details, with new facts and more evidence than ever presented in one place at one time, from extensive, highly credible sources, the dangerously extremist nature of President Obama and the true goals of his virulently anti-American, radical leftist administration.

It further reveals how a huge network of U.S. and foreign communist and hard left organizations connected to this President has colluded with radical Islam for decades to oversee the destruction of their mutual enemy: America. Overshadowing all is the malevolent Soros network, and the billions he and others like him are devoting to facilitate this goal.

Speakers included  investigative reporter, Trevor Loudon, author of Barack Obama and the Enemies Within; KGB defector Konstantin Preobazhensky, speaking on his report, Communists and Muslims, the Hidden Hand of the KGB; Paul Kengor, author of The Communist, Frank Marshall Davis, The Untold Story of Barack Obama’s Mentor; Larry Grathwohl, the only FBI informant to successfully penetrate Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground; Rebel Pundit blogger Jeremy Segal; Joel Gilbert, producer of the film, Dreams from My Real Father, a Story of Reds and Deception; and the Clarion Fund’s Ryan Mauro, speaking on the Muslim Brotherhood, the War on the New York City Police, and the film, The Third Jihad. Additional contributions were provided in the form of printed reports from former Romanian intelligence chief, Ion Mihai Pacepa, who exposed Lee Harvey Oswald’s KGB assassin training; Walid Shoebat, who revealed Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Tina Trent who describes the latest radical left agenda supported by George Soros: the prison depopulation movement.

These videos simply must be seen by as many Americans as possible before the 2012 election.

Cannibal Summer: 4 Blood Curdling Stories in One Week

Memorial Day was only a few days ago,  but if this current trend continues,  it’s going to be a long, hot and horrifically grisly summer. Lock your doors and hide the children – there are some new, horrible drugs out there, and they are making people do unspeakable things.

This first story, which happened last Saturday afternoon in broad daylight, is still giving me nightmares – -

Miami Police Shoot, Kill Man Eating Another Man’s Face:

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami police are still tight-lipped about the man they shot and killed on the MacArthur Causeway Saturday afternoon, but new details back claims they had no choice: the naked man they shot was trying to chew the face off another naked man, and refused to obey police orders to stop his grisly meal, which one source now claims included his victim’s nose and eyeballs.

Surveillance video taken from security cameras at the nearby Miami Herald building show a police officer arrive on the scene, appear to be startled by the spectacle of two naked men lying on the street, and draw his service weapon. It appears that the officer shot one of the men, but it was difficult to tell in the video.

The bizarre shooting happened shortly after 2 p.m., when police responded to a 911 call about two naked men fighting on a bike path along the Causeway, which was packed with traffic on a busy holiday weekend.

Pictures from the ghastly crime scene have emerged on the internet, but trust me, you don’t want to see them.

Miami police have not confirmed the details of what happened next, but sources close to the investigation told CBS4 News that officers found one man gnawing on the face of another, in what one police source called the most gruesome thing he’d ever seen.

Like I said – the stuff of nightmares.

This next one is more than a little disturbing, too:

Kitten-Killing Cannibal Porn Star Luka Magnotta Sought in Canada Body Parts Case – Snuff Video Uncovered …Update: Luka Has a Blog …Update: He Plans on Killing Again:

Porn star Luka Rocco Magnotta is being sought by Canadian authorities in connection with the Ottawa-Montreal body parts case.
The National Post reported:

A video which purportedly shows a suspect wanted in connection with the Ottawa-Montreal body parts case brutally killing and sexually assaulting a naked man appears on a Canadian-operated website.

Police are now studying the gruesome video which was believed to have been taken by the suspect, identified today by police as Luka Rocco Magnotta.

Magnotta is wanted in connection with the discovery of a man’s torso stuffed in a locked suitcase in Montreal — whose hand and foot were mailed to Ottawa.

A man by the same name as Magnotta – who is featured on a number of lurid Internet sites – is a low-budget gay porn star suspected of appearing in a number of kitten-killing videos.

A snuff video surfaced recently that showed a man being murdered with an icepick.

In a grisly twist to the case, a graphic and deeply disturbing video has emerged which is purported to show the murder and dismemberment. A Montreal police source confirmed cops are in possession of a video, which also includes cannibalism, but would not say if it is the same video.

The graphic video online shows a man being stabbed to death with an ice pick and then being cut into pieces. The video was shot inside an apartment that bears a close resemblance to the unit in west-end Montreal that’s at the centre of the homicide investigation.

Maryland man admits eating victim’s heart, part of his brain, documents say

JOPPATOWNE, Md. — A Maryland man has admitted to eating another man’s heart and part of the man’s brain, according to police documents.

The Harford County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Alexander Kinyua was arrested Wednesday, days after a man whom he lived with went missing. Police say they found body parts while searching the townhome on Terrapin Terrace in Joppatowne. Police also found body parts in a nearby trash container.

Kinyua is charged with first-degree murder and was ordered held on no bail.

This one doesn’t involve cannibalism, but believe me – it’s still pretty bad:

Man Threw His Intestines at Officers After Stabbing Himself

Seriously?

According to the Huffington Post and NBC,  43-year-old Wayne Carter allegedly barricaded himself in on Sunday, and when cornered by authorities, he stabbed himself multiple times before cutting out his entrails and throwing them at the police while also throwing bits of his flesh. Officers came to the scene when a witness called in to report that Carter was threatening to harm himself with his knife. When two officers kicked down Carter’s door and ordered him to put down the knife, Carter ignored them and began stabbing himself in the neck, legs and abdomen.

Man Threw His Intestines at Officers – The Incident

In an attempt to stop Carter from further harming himself, the officers tried to pepper spray him, however, it had no effect on him. Carter, who was responsive despite being disemboweled, retaliated and then started to throw bits of his skin and intestines at the officers. According to Lt. John Heinemann, to control the situation, the officers called for backup and called in the Bergen County SWAT team. Once the SWAT team was on the scene, they were able to subdue Carter and take him to the nearest hospital for emergency medical care.

Our sick culture is creating monsters.

Too many people  feel the need to fill the empty void within themselves with these dangerous chemicals instead of finding something spiritually wholesome to fulfill that need.

It’s a pity.

UPDATE:

American Livewire asks: What are bath salts, and are they actually inducing a Zombie Apocalypse?

The term Bath Salts describe the illegal designer street drugs that have been linked to violent delusions, and death. A 50 milligram packet usually sells for $25 to $50 reports say.

As of April, 34 of 50 states have banned bath salts, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

As most of you are aware, the cannibal man eating attack that occurred in Miami was induced after the consumption of the legal substance known as Bath salts.

This disturbing trend has sparked national attention, bringing to light the real dangers of this amphetamine like substance.  With the mass hysteria captivating the country, many are hinting towards an “unfathomable zombie apocalypse”.

Here’s what someone looks like when they’re on the drug:

RS McCain Surfaces In LA

I hope he doesn’t mind me spilling the beans, LA is a huge city after all – finding him would be like finding a needle in a haystack.

Anyway, I saw this Daily Mail story linked on Drudge: Justin Bieber wanted for questioning after allegedly ‘roughing up’ a photographer during a date with Selena Gomez

Teen idol Justin Bieber is wanted for questioning by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s investigators -  after a paparazzo complained of being roughed up by the young pop star at a shopping center.

The scuffle allegedly happened when the photographer tried to snap pictures of the 18-year-old and his girlfriend Selena Gomez, after they walked out of a theater at The Commons at Calabasas today.

Sheriff Lt. Robert Wiard says the photographer in question called 911 on Sunday and complained of pain to his chest.

Stacy’s resting comfortably in his hotel room after the traumatic episode.

The Conservatory has covered a few more Stacy sightings. He’s really getting around.

If you feel inclined, please hit the poor slob’s freakin’ tip jar - he’s just getting started as a paparazzo and  has a family to feed.

Are You Ready For “Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day”, May 25? (Video)

This Friday, May 25th has been designated, Everybody Blog About Brett Kimberlin Day.

The always excellent Lee Stranahan came up with the idea:

Brett Kimberlin is a convicted bomber, perjurer and left-wing attack dog. He’s attacked — in no particular order — conservative bloggers like Andrew Breibart, Patterico, Liberty Chick, Aaron Worthing, Stacy McCain and others.

He created a short, easy to follow video  crib notes version of Kimberlin’s history:

That chilling music is very apropos -  Kimberlin is an evil menace to society, and must be stopped before he hurts someone again. Just as chilling is the fact that there are powerful and deep pocketed entities on the left that are willing to fund his nefarious operations. That anyone in their right minds would want to have their name associated with such a miscreant should be shocking, but we’re talking about institutional left, here. There is apparently no limit to the depths of  depravity Marxists will sink to in order to destroy their enemies..

As you’ve probably heard, the Brett Kimberlin saga recently took a bizarre Turn, forcing RS McCain to leave Maryland:

FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION
Convicted terrorist Brett Kimberlin on Monday continued his effort to silence those who write about his criminal past by contacting my wife’s employer, claiming that I was “harassing” him. The resulting security concern required immediate relocation if I was to be able to continue writing about the case of Kimberlin, a violent felon, perjurer and admitted tax cheat who is employed as the director of a 501(c)3 non-profit that has collected $1.8 million in contributions since 2005.

Kimberlin was convicted of multiple federal felonies in 1981 and sentenced to 50 years in prison after he terrorized a small Indiana town in a brutal crime weeklong bombing spree. Law enforcement officials told the Indianapolis Star they believed the bombings were committed in an attempt to distract authorities investigating the 1978 murder of a 65-year-old grandmother, a crime in which Kimberlin was a suspect.

In recent months, Kimberlin has used a strategy of legal intimidation and workplace harassment in an apparent attempt to silence his critics, including blogger Seth Allen, Virginia attorney Aaron Walker and Los Angeles deputy district attorney Patrick Frey.

Walker says he and his wife were fired from their jobs because of Kimberlin’s harassment. Walker did legal work for Allen, who was sued after writing about Kimberlin’s criminal career. On Thursday, Walker published a 28,000-word account of how he says Kimberlin tried to “frame” him on a bogus assault charge.

Kimberlin is a known associate of Neal Rauhauser, a Democrat campaign consultant who has described himself as a computer “hacker.” Kimberlin, director of the tax-exempt Justice Through Music Project, is also involved in another tax-exempt group, Velvet Revolution, which has gained national attention by demanding criminal prosecution of high-profile figures including Republican strategist Karl Rove, U.S. Chamber of Commerce president Tom Donohue, and the late Internet news entrepreneur Andrew Breitbart. Kimberlin’s name also surfaced last year in connection with the so-called “Anonymous” international hacker conspiracy. Kimberlin has pursued numerous strategies to harass journalists and bloggers who have attempted to call attention to his criminal past and his notorious dishonesty — a “top-flight con man,” as Publisher’s Weekly called him in a review of award-winning journalist Mark Singer’s 1996 book, Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin.

This Friday, let’s all be Stacy McCain – let’s all be all Aaron Worthing…

Stranahan explains what you can do to take part in EBABKD, this Friday:

  1. Research Brett Kimberlin on your own. Don’t trust secondary sources; look for the orginal articles articles published about him, too.
  2. On Friday, May 25th — write an honest, factually accurate post about what you learned and what your OPINION is. Brett may try and sue you, so be accurate, factual and separate fact from opinion.
  3. The post doesn’t have to be long — ANYTHING helps.
  4. After you post, Tweet, share, whatever — get the post out there.

In other words flood the zone…

Read Aaron Worthing’s blog, Allergic to Bull for all the latest happenings in the Kimberlin saga.

UPDATE:

The Ewok enters the fray.

UPDATE II:

Just got off the phone with Stacy.

I had contacted him because I wanted to know if the rumors were true that Kimberlin had  threatened his life like I’ve been seeing on some blogs. He told me that he doesn’t scare easily, but “when someone as dangerously sociopathic as Brett Kimberlin, with his terrorist background,  takes a personal interest in you -  *finds out where you live, you tend to feel threatened.”

Bob Owens asks: Why are Maryland Democrats letting the “Speedway Bomber” get away with terrorism?

Why do radical leftist terrorists keep turning up around Barack Obama?

Damn good question.

It seems that Kimberlin unwisely chose lawyers as his targets, and they have compiled enough compelling evidence to warrant a criminal investigation of Kimberlin’s actions, but authorities do not seem at all interested in pursuing the case.

Why?

Another damn good question.

The charges would apparently need to be brought in Maryland. Heavily Democratic Maryland. The same Democrats for which Kimberlin’s group advocates.

UPDATE V:

Mesablue says Brett Kimberlin — sue me, please.

Mr. Kimberlin (and noxious friends), I call you out to try to find me and do to me what you have done in recent months to others that I would call friends. I hate to make this about me, but I would truly enjoy personally embarrassing you in this venue. Or, in court.

***

* Originally reported as “tells you he knows where you live…” but I’m not actually clear on that point. Stacy did tell me later that he knew after Kimberlin called his wife’s employment that he also knew where they lived, so until he tells me otherwise I’ll just leave it at that.

Shocking Video Proof Of Tea Party Terrorism in Waco, Texas

Accuracy In Media’s Benjamin Johnson infiltrated a Tea Party terrorist training convention in Waco, Texas, and was stunned and amazed to find that many of the terrorists were elderly women.

This is an AIM exclusive!:

Ben Johnson at Big Government writes:

With elected officials scrambling for a cross to hang their economic failure upon, the Obama administration has declared open season on the Tea Party.  This is our generation’s form of McCarthyism.   Witch-hunting at its finest.  Attack, blame and demonize the Tea Party for all of America’s troubles.  Never mind the fact that the TP has never acted violently and is packed with veterans who served our country and sweet old ladies who love America.  The administration is enthusiastically joined by a chorus of vitriol and hate by the likes of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and every on camera personality at MSNBC.

I guess innocent American citizens are an easy a target for Washington when policies fail.

One thing: McCarthy went after commies because they were infiltrating the government and the culture – he didn’t do it to smear his political enemies because his own party’s policies were such abject failures. There’s a little bit of a difference there. McCarthy shouldn’t be compared to these latter day party hacks.

The Latest On Fast and Furious: DOJ Doubles Down – Promotes ATF Honchos In Charge Of Gunwalker

William McMahon

In a move that clearly suggests that the DOJ plans to double-down in its cover-up and whitewash of Fast and Furious, their disastrous gunwalking mega-scandal with a body count, they’ve promoted Former ATF Special Agent in Charge, Phoenix Field Division; William McMahon to ATF Deputy Assistant Director for Field Operations. This promotion, among others, is being seen by whistle-blowers within the ATF as an attempt to charge “full speed ahead on its defense-slash-deflection of Gunwalker.”  And ominously for whistle-blowers,it appears that some of the people directly responsible for this project are now in a positions to “slit their throats.”

Clean-up ATF.Org is a forum where anonymous ATF agents share information and compare notes, an absolute treasure-trove of information for people following this trainwreck. A regular poster who goes by the handle “old school” posted this warning to fellow members at the site:

 I think management may have indeed already learned who some of us anonymous members are. I have no doubt computer hacks have been assigned to discover our identities. I am no tech guy but I know lots of things can be done. It would not surprise me for illegal methods to be used in this endeavor also. I have had received some very unusual comments from some managers lately, comments that were a little too close and too coincidental to my posts. I feel completely confident and comfortable with my postings but we know how the retaliation works. Revenge is a dish best served cold, right?

His post on the shocking  staff changes:

George Gillett is slated to be named as the ATF Liaison to the United States Marshall’s Service. Another poor decision with a magnitude of idiocy that is nearly incomprehensible. He is universally disrespected, has a documented history of failed management and discipline and was a leading proponent of Fast and Furious. He will ruin whatever is left of ATF’s relationship with the USMS.

McMahon in essence received a promotion. ATF’s OPRSO (Internal Affairs) is the highest level of integrity review in the Bureau. They have given the keys to that car to a person who has displayed self-admitted incompetence and refused any accountability for Fast and Furious beyond an admission that he did not review reports closely enough on the case. He has no integrity but now he will be judging everyone else’s. Plus, he has supervised and protected SAC John Torres for years, one of ATF’s biggest criminals. Prepare for the already low esteem of IA to sink deeper regardless of how well Chait props him up (see below).

David Voth was promoted to the Chief of the Tobacco Program after he extorted the agents in his group by giving them the ultimatum of going along with his plan to run guns into Mexico or leave ATF for another job.

Mark Chait who was instrumental in Fast and Furious and Castaway is the guy making these promotions and announcing them in a way where he praises McMahon in his new position (from Chait’s email), “I would also like to extend the same thanks to Bill [McMahon] for his leadership and work with the Western Region field divisions and IAO. While we will miss his guidance in FO, I know he will take the same professionalism and dedication he has shown us and direct that into his new position at OPRSO.”

Julie Torres who was asleep at the wheel during Castaway will remain in her spot and, she was overheard stating her intention to get to the bottom of CleanUpATF and ask DOJ to investigate the anonymous participants.

Good luck with that Jules. 1) Whistleblowers are given the privilege of being anonymous and, 2) there is a document called the Constitution and its First Amendment is the Freedom of Speech.

Even in the midst of our agencies biggest crisis in history Chait and his people can’t even do the wrong thing right. He is dangerous in his arrogance that he can make statements like that and moves like he has in the face of his involvement in F&F.

Given the recent promotions, Bill Newell should soon be Director. Being on the verge of a perjury indictment won’t dissuade Chait and Melson’s clowns. If Newell isn’t indicted quickly then DOJ better pardon the convictions of Bernie Maddoff, Scooter Libby, Kwame Kilpatrick, Marion Jones and Barry Bonds. They were all recently convicted of perjury. How can a federal agent not be held to the same standard of any other American? Maybe because he is covering for his bosses and that buys him some grace from DOJ and Eric Holder. That’s the only thing I can come up with.

At Sipsey Street Irregulars, Mike Vanderboegh is digging into the background of former ATF Special Agent in Charge, Phoenix Field Division, Bill Newell’s White House contact,  Kevin O’Reilly.  He describes the info coming his way as “anecdotal yet useful” in Sipsey Street Exclusive: The O’Reilly Factor. The Obama “political Rasputin” who just happened to be emailing “Gunwalker Bill” Newell:

Typical, and reinforced by other accounts except on one major point, is this from a source with long government experience:

O’Reilly is a very left-wing operator. Has wide and long contacts with the “CHANGE” gang, Axelrod and Emanuel. . . (He is) a “One World” true believer, who has in the past three years, become close to U.S. Amb. to U.N. Susan Rice. This gives him an entree to the scab-suckers @ U.N.

The fact that he is in the N.S.C. is very troubling. The fact that he has so much juice … is dangerous !

He has John Donilan’s ear… which makes him the political Rasputin who gets to whisper the last thing into The N.S.C. Advisor’s ear before he talks to POTUS. He has some long-standing relations with Fmr. CIA’s John Brennan (Now Counter-terrorism Guru @ N.S.C.) but can’t pin it down to a time and place. May have been during the
election run-up in 2008.

He was a player in forcing Adm. Dennis Blair to resign as Director of National Intelligence, I am told. He made a reputation for himself as a very crafty … and clever. A staffer up on the Hill, who has a lot of Juice with left wing crowd.

(MBV Note: Probably refers to O’Reilly’s time as a Pearson Fellow in the office of Illinois Senator Dick Durbin.)

My sources tell me that he was the “MOLE” inside the N.S.C. who pulled the rug out from under the best National Security Advisor we’ve had in a long, long time; Gen. Jim Jones, USMC (Ret). He under-mined the General and was rumored to being the leak
at the White House on some very key matters, such as Troop “Surge” in Afghanistan, the McChrystal mess and the embrace of the Obama-labeled “Arab Spring” bullshit. . .

Sipsey Street Irregulars ties in the Democratic media complex’s coordinated outrageous smears against the tea party with the “International Gunrunner Regime” in this disquieting post: The International Gunrunner Regime’s devaluing of language in order to devalue their opponents. Preparatory to what, exactly?

…to what do we attribute the Democrats collectivists’ devaluing of words like “Jihad” and “terrorist” when they apply them to their certainly non-violent political opponents? Why do they use, as Klemperer called them, “poison words” when speaking about the Tea Parties?

Klemperer’s book not only documents how the Nazis used words to marginalize, dehumanize and ultimately justify killing their opponents, it also demonstrates that, in the words of the Wikipedia reviewer, “resistance to oppression begins by questioning the constant use of buzzwords.”

The characterization of Tea Party activists as “terrorists” is ludicrous to anyone who knows one in person. Surely, even the people who are using these words must understand how over the top they are when used to describe the blue-haired old ladies who bake cupcakes to raise money for conservative candidates. Don’t they?

Or do they? Something else must surely be going on here.

Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person subconsciously denies his or her own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, usually to other people. Thus, projection involves imagining or projecting the belief that others originate those feelings. — Wikipedia.

Klemperer writes with great irony about the ability of Nazi murderers to ascribe murderous intent to their victims. I rather think that is what is going on here.

Obama’s Neo-Marxist and Neo-Racialist Legacy – How Do You Like Him, Now, Suckas?

This nifty video, produced by someone who goes by “Ant”, highlights the racialism and neo-Marxism of the president :

video via Weasel Zippers

At The American Thinker, Lloyd Marcus asks: Campaign 2012: Are We Over ‘The Black Thing’ Yet?

My fellow Americans, in regard to the U.S. presidency, please tell me we are over “the black thing.”  Can we move past race and gender and simply elect the best American for the job?

Due to liberal media manipulation and guilt, America elected an incompetent black guy as leader of the free world to prove that we are not racist.  Obama’s black skin has made him untouchable, the left’s dream tool to further their socialist agenda. Once America gets over “the black thing”, will the liberal media demand we elect Hilliary to prove we are not sexist?

How long will it be before the liberal media demands that we elect our first openly gay/lesbian president to prove that we are not homophobic?

I believe that the novelty of a black guy in the White House is over — been there, done that, got the historic Obama (false) Hope & Change t-shirt.

I hereby proclaim the season of Presidential Affirmative Action over!

Funny how the liberal media and their far-left buddies deal with blacks and women.  You need to understand that the left’s progressive/socialist agenda trumps everything.  Thus, race and gender are highly effective tools used to further their agenda.

If you are a black liberal, the left gleefully views you as a poor victim of a racist America. Quoting Obama’s pastor, Rev. Wright, “Barack knows what it feels like to live in a country controlled by rich white people”. The left demands that standards be lowered and government entitlements be gifted.

If you are a black conservative, the left views you as a stupid self hating n***** suffering with Stockholm Syndrome. And yes, the left freely uses the “n” word when referring to black conservatives.

If you are a liberal woman, you are a victim of a sexist America controlled by white male SOBs.  If you are a conservative woman, you are a stupid slut.

So, you can understand why my stomach turns when the liberal media and their far-left buddies are lauded for their superior compassion and tolerance for blacks and women.

We were told Obama was “post racial”, but he’s been anything but. Under his “historic” presidency, the racial divide has gotten wider.  I saw it starting during the 2008 election campaign, and now its boiling over. What the heck  is going on in our inner cities?! It’s impossible not to notice that mobs of black youths are engaging in mass criminal behavior  all across the nation, and terrorizing the populous -  why hasn’t the President addressed the exploding problem? Jane Jamison writes at RWN: White and a Victim of Crime? You Deserve It:

This country is in the final stages of “disintegration” despite whether anyone wants to acknowledge it. Our public education system is a failure, our economy has been trashed with runaway spending on more liberal theories that don’t work. The final insult is the polarization of society, which has gotten much worse under Barack Obama, whom we were told would unite us in a “post-racial” society. Wrong. As we circle the drain, cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Chicago have the “new era” police chiefs: They sort of “look like” police officers, but they won’t enforce immigration laws, they appease Muslim terrorism, they hand out millions in failed programs to freshly-entitled low-income minorities, and they blame white people for…..everything.

It’s not “post-racial,” this is the Obama “neo-racial” society. What are YOU going to do about it? Warning: The content and images are graphic.

Mobs of BLACK PEOPLE are running wild in American cities preying on white people and businesses. You are called a racist if you report this fact.

Read her full report. Your head is in the sand if you’re not alarmed by the black mob violence we’ve been seeing.

Warped Priorities in Dealing with Racist Mob Violence

The Racism Everyone Pretends Doesn’t Exist

Knowing of what she speaks, Zilla and her family were among the last whites to leave her formerly multi-racial neighborhood in Roosevelt, on Long Island. Her “white flight” would be better termed “survival”. Read her post for her story, and many others, where she concludes:

Black racism is just as real as other kinds of racism and just as evil, but it is even more dangerous than the others because few will even acknowledge that it exists, much less do something about it. That needs to change, although it will be an uphill battle when you’ve got race hustling grievance mongers like Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder undermining any attempts to see justice served for victims of hate crimes if they aren’t in his preferred demographic and fellow race hustling grievance mongers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson aiding in cover-ups and suppression of any honest conversation of the matter with the MSM following in lockstep. The whitewashing of black racism needs to stop – NOW.

Video: Issa’s Opening Statement at Today’s Operation Fast and Furious Hearing + More

Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) opening statement at today’s explosive Oversight hearing on the Obama Administration’s deadly program that let thousands of high-powered weapons fall into drug smugglers’ hands. Oversight released a scathing report w/ all the tragic facts about the Obama Administration’s deadly mistake of a program, Operation Fast and Furious. Read the report here: http://1.usa.gov/mySoTv

Issa on the CBS Early Show asked a good question:  Since the president said “something may have gone wrong”, why have months have gone by, and no one has lost their jobs?

On Fox News William La Jeunesse said sources told him that this disaster was “not a mistake, it was a deliberate strategy approved by the Justice Dept and carried out by the ATF over the strenuous objections of multiple agents and dealers. From what I’ve been told, Mexico is going to be livid, outraged when they see the congressional report that shows that US officials could have cared less when guns they intentionally sent south, killed people in Mexico – not just drug dealers, but innocent victims and cops.”

Via Tucson Citizen: Statement of John Dodson about ATF gunwalker scandal: “The very idea of letting guns walk is unthinkable to most law enforcement.”

Statement of John Dodson to House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform June 15, 2011.

Dodson is the first whistleblower to come forth in public after Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered with guns “walked” by ATF.

I have never heard an explanation from anyone involved in Operation Fast and Furious that I believe would justify what we did. The ATF is supposed to be a guardian of our citizens. To paraphrase the analogy of Army LTC Dave Grossman, ATF is supposed to be the sheepdog that protects against the wolves that prey upon our southern border. But rather than meet the wolf head-on, we sharpened its teeth and added number to its claws, all the while we sat idly by watching, tracking, and noting as it became a more efficient killer.

Prior to my coming to the Phoenix Field Division, I had never been involved in or even heard of an operation in which law enforcement officers let guns walk. The very idea of letting guns walk is unthinkable to most law enforcement. I and other field agents involved in the operation repeatedly raised these concerns with our supervisors. In response, we were told that we simply did not understand the plan. However, the numerous guns we let walk have yet to be recovered. Those that have been, were only recovered after the last time they were used in a crime. I cannot begin to think of how the risk of letting guns fall into the hands of known criminals could possibly advance any legitimate law enforcement interest. I hope the Committee will receive a better explanation than I ever did.

Read full statement at link.

This whole debacle begs the question: How could top officials at the DOJ have been this criminally,  insanely, impossibly incompetent?

In the past, the Obama Administration and the Department of Homeland Security had implied that the violence in Mexico was the fault of the Second Amendment — law abiding gun shop owners who sold to cartel members.

This whole thing stinks to high heaven and heads should roll.
The higher up – the better.
