Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”

Boswell votes with Republicans on Holder

In today's Register they had a article about Rep. Leonard Boswell voting with the republicans on the contempt vote against Eric Holder. Good for Rep. Boswell.

The truth needs to come out and hiding behind "executive privilege" is not going to sop it. Crimes were committed and someone authorized it. There are 2 federal agents and over 200 Mexican citizens murdered by this "operation". All of these news sources keep calling Fast and Furious a failed operation. There was nothing failed about it. If it had been about tracking guns to the cartels the Mexican authorities would have been notified and involved. They were kept in the dark and so were the federal agents that were stationed in Mexico. Jamie Zapata was one of those agents and was murdered in a attack on a Mexican hi way by the very cartels that ATF and DOJ armed.

There has been a flurry of articles in the last few days denying that F&F ever even happened. The proof is there and so is the truth. Two of the F&F guns were found at the scene of BP Agent Brian Terry's murder. There have been F&F guns found at the murder scenes fo Mexican citizens. They are now even starting to show up on our side of the border on a regular basis. Over 40 of them were recently recovered in Texas.

Gun dealers in Arizona called ATF and expressed their concerns about some of the purchasers. The ATF told (ordered) the dealers to proceed with the sales. The guns left the store and were being watched b agents until orders came down for them to back off and let the guns go. They went across the border and no one in Mexico was told they were coming. ATF agents can't cross the border so the claim they were going to "follow" the gun to higher up's is a outright lie. There was no way to track the guns after they quit following the original purchasers.

The purchasers are known as "straw buyers". They usually have a clean record and can purchase firearms after the standard background check. Straw purchasing is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in a federal prison. The first time the straw purchasers handed off the firearms, they and the receivers could have been arrested and charged on the spot. Why they weren't is one of the questions that needs a answer.

There are those that have been calling for more "gun control". Really? There are over 20,000 gun control laws on the books in this country and there is not a criminal anywhere that will obey even one of them. One more law won't do anything to stop criminal activity. The criminals will get guns one way or another. With our open border they can carry guns in with no questions asked. And there are a lot of countries out there that will sell guns to the cartels without a second thought. Most of the crime guns in Mexico come from across their southern border from places like Venezuela and Columbia. Then you have to factor in the fact that our own government supplies arms to the Mexican government. The soldiers then hear the lure of money, desert to join the cartels and take their military M16 with them.

Hospital update 2

We found out this morning that Naomi has one of the worst cases of diverticulitis that the Doctor has ever seen and the person still live. There's a scary thought to start your day. They will be doing surgery in about 6 weeks to fix the problem. There are going to be some radical changes in our diet.

They started her on clear fluids yesterday and told her that she can probably have some real food by Monday. We are hoping that she gets to come home by Tuesday.

Holder in Contempt. Now let's get the truth out.

Congress finally held Holder in contempt and the libs at the Register were fast to get all of the democrat talking points out there trying to defend the slimebag. The second paragraph started the same old lies about "Fast and Furious".

"botched operation that contributed to the death of a border patrol agent"

There was nothing "botched" about it. You also left out the fact that another federal agent, Jamie Zapata and over 200 Mexican citizens were also murdered with these guns.

"White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer described it as "a transparently political stunt."

Since when is trying to find the truth "political"? They will try anything to hide the fact that they allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico.

""It could have been avoided had Attorney General Holder actually produced the subpoenaed documents he said he would provide,'' Issa said. "Claims by the Justice Department that it has fully cooperated with this investigation fall at odds with its conduct.''

Heavily redacted documents and missing documents aren't what the oversight committee wanted. They want the truth and Holder knows id the truth comes out he will be finished. Holder's goal right now is to try and keep his ass out of a Mexican prison.

"The House vote came after a walkout by about 100 Democratic lawmakers who refused to vote, including the 42-member Congressional Black Caucus."

Poor babies, didn't get their way. Trying to block justice for a couple white guys and a bunch of Mexicans. There are your racists. Half of the Democrats when talking about this couldn't even remember Brian Terry's name. One even referred to him as "that guy" in Arizona. They don't want the truth, they want to cover Obama and Holder's asses at all cost.

"In scheduling the vote, House Republican leaders criticized Holder for declining to release documents related to the botched gun-trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious."

There's that word "botched" again. There wasn't anything "botched" about it. The guns were allowed to cross the border and the Mexican authorities were never informed. They wanted those guns to show up at crime scenes to inflate the numbers. And this country, being full of the sheep it is, believes ever lie the government spouts. One even claims that there was 2000 guns a day going across the border. That's almost 3/4 of a million guns a year. Not only is that unbelievable, it's a out right lie. These people have no shame in their advancing of their agenda.

"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. called the vote a "misuse of power, an abuse of power.''

"It is the wrong thing to do,'' Pelosi said. "After him (Holder), who's next?''

This from the idiot that had to pass a bill to know what's in it? The people of her district deserve her. She's a good reason to give Kalifornia back to Mexico.

Obama's 11th hour "executive privilege" plan could come back to bite him. They had better take a look at US v Nixon. The president couldn't hide back then and he can't hide now. This isn't a break in at a hotel. This is a criminal conspiracy to smuggle guns into a sovereign nation. There is a trail of bodies and they lead right straight to the Department of Justice.

The March of Cambreadth: "Fight until you die or drop."

This is a rather catchy tune. I really like the artwork.

H/T to Mike V.

Fast and Furious explained.

Here is one of the best explanations for Fast and Furious I have heard.

Possum update

Maybe you read this.

Well, again last night/this morning, I was up at 0215. I let the dogs out and decided I could catch up since the gun show this weekend had me a little behind. I read a while and noticed that the only one dog had come back. Sam is our little escape artist and anytime he can he like to go visit the neighbors. I called him several times and got no response. Shoes, flashlight and a fresh smoke and off I go. The first place I checked was where he had the possum cornered the other day. He wasn't there so I went down to the far corner of the yard. There, under the remains of a mostly dead lilac i found him. Standing over the dead body of a medium sized possum. I took the possum and threw it over the fence in the general direction of the trashcans. One more time I had to physically carry him back to the house. I don't know if he killed the possum or if it died for some other reason. I have seen him kill snakes before so I guess it's possible. It was 0330 by the time I got back to sleep. That sure makes the day a little longer.

The gun show this weekend was a little slow. Saturday was cloudy with a little rain mixed in. That probably helped get people to the show. Sunday was sunny and nice and by 2:00 PM it was dead. JD from Ankeny stopped by. He was scooping up as much 6.8 SPC as he could carry.

Fast & Furious: History of watchdog work fuels Grassley's inquiry

There is a pretty good article in today's Register about Senator Grassley and the investigation into Fast and Furious. There were a few things they are still getting wrong and of course Senator harkin spouts off about things he knows nothing about. Here is what I left for them, addressing their mistakes.

" a failed sting operation on the Mexican border".

The was nothing "failed" about it. It went exactly as the administration planned. They wanted the numbers of guns found at Mexican crime scenes inflated to prove to the people that we were responsible for all of the cartels violence. If BP Agent Terry hadn't been murdered, it might still be going on. Now they've been caught.

"a February 2011 letter sent to Grassley’s office denying a “gun-walking” operation like Fast and Furious had taken place.

The department later acknowledged the letter’s contents were false."

They deliberately lied to Congress about the whole thing. That alone should have been enough to hold Holder in Contempt. He has lied from the beginning.

"The term gun-walking refers to a tactic in which law enforcement allows weapons to flow illegally onto U.S. streets for the purpose of tracking their movement — or walk — into Mexico."

Except there was never a plan to have the authorities in Mexico track the weapons. In fact, the Mexican didn't know anything about it until these weapons started showing up at crime scenes. Now we have 2 dead Federal Agents and over 200 Mexican Citizens. All to advance their agenda.

"In a call with reporters on Friday, U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa, a Democrat, said Republicans were seeking to make a “mountain out of a molehill.”".

I dare Harkin to face Brian Terry's family, and the families of Agent Zapata and all of the dead Mexicans and tell them "it's no big deal, it's just political. When are Iowan's going to wise up and throw this liberal idiot pisswit out of office.

This administration, in this one operation is responsible for the murders of over 200 people, and the very act of allowing the weapons to cross the border illegally is a act of war. There are people in Mexico wanting answers too. Of course their President isn't one of them. Her has the balls to go in front of congress and demand more gun control and yet won't try to do anything about the cartels. He's just as corrupt as this administration.

Here are links to all of the stories about F&F that the mainstream media has been ignoring for the last 18 months. Education is a good thing.

Feel free to go and read the article and comment.
