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”

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

Before he was murdered with them, ICE Agent Jaime Zapata intercepted weapons from one of the Texas-based “Fast and Furious” gun-walking plots

Mike Vanderboegh does it again, breaking another exclusive in the Fast and Furious investigation that shows deception inside Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security in regards to the various Obama Administration gun-walking plots:

More proof that this administration is covering up to protect "The One". He also gives the credit where it belongs, with David Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh. The CBS award winning journalist didn't get on the F&F bandwagon until months after the story broke.

What honor looks like: The flash mob at Gate 38 of Reagan National Airport

While checking out other blogs I read this morning this caught my eye. Be sure to read the whole story and watch the video. Pay attention at 3:16 and the young man with the newspaper. After reading this and watching, I had to go clear my eyes.

Honor is a hard term to describe. It doesn’t have a color or weight or shape. If someone were to ask me what honor looked like, I’d probably struggle with what to say.

But something happened on May 23, 2012 at 9:31 a.m. at Gate 38 of Reagan National Airport that might change that. A flash mob of sorts broke out. But not like you’ve seen on YouTube with highly choreographed dance numbers or people singing a song in unison. In fact, virtually all of the participants of this “flash mob” didn’t know they would be participating until moments before it happened.

I think this pretty much answers the question of what honor is.

Watergate at 40: Obama is the Democrats’ Nixon

It's been 40 years since the Watergate scandal ended the Presidency of Richard Nixon. When the story broke and the trials and Nixon's resignation were going on I was In the Marines. Since this was my Commander in Chief, I was interested in knowing how it would all come out. Nixon resigned and Gerald Ford became my new boss. Hopefully, unlike the Who song, unlike the old boss.

Some guys broke into a hotel room and brought down a president. Now we have people breaking US and International law and the press responds with a resounding yawn. John Ransom at Townhall Finance wrote a great article comparing Presidents Obama and Nixon. From the article;

While we were all shocked and angered at the revelation of Nixon’s abuses, today the same abuses are not only ignored but tolerated- even encouraged- by the Left.

I never thought I would see a time when the U.S. government would deliberately sell guns to Mexican drug cartels just to advance a petty policy argument about gun control, while the press stood by with not a word or reproach. Or allow the Black Panthers to practice the worst type of racism abetted by the highest law enforcement officer in the land, while the press applauded.

Have we become so tolerant that we will just overlook anything politicians do? Where is the outrage over the deaths of BP agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jamie Zapata? What about 200 plus Mexican citizens murdered with the guns our DOJ allowed to be smuggled. What about the New Black Panthers putting a bounty on the head of a man that had not been, at the time, charged with a crime? Why do they get a free pass? Why, if people say anything do Jesse Jaskass and Al fraud scream "racist" at the top of their lungs.

There could be hope on the horizon. There has been a new development in the gunwalker case and it has the potential of being a deal breaker for Holder and friends. from that we learn about rats leaving a sinking ship.

Multiple, previously highly credible, sources close to the Gunwalker investigation report that there are at least one and perhaps two sources within the Department of Justice headquarters who have approached the Issa Committee seeking whistleblower status. One source, who reported that there were at least two of Eric Holder's subordinates who "came in from the cold," characterized them as "high-level" DOJ employees "with knowledge of Eric Holder's actions before and after" the 4 February 2011 DOJ letter denying that the DOJ and its subordinate agencies knew about "gunwalking." That letter has since been admitted by DOJ to have been a lie. If true, one or both of these whistleblowers may be the so-called "mole" -- a source within DOJ said to have been leaking documents, including the wiretap affidavits, to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

John ransom summed it up pretty well;

This time, key parts of the country have sold their soul to a man who is, like Nixon, soul-sick.

But today, whether that man stays or goes doesn’t matter.

It only matters that we reclaim our own soul.

Salvation for our country can only come one soul at a time, because that is how we sold it: one soul at a time.

Group releases new ad shooting for Fast and Furious ‘accountability’

Lobbying group American Future Fund released a new Operation Fast and Furious ad on Wednesday aimed at pushing President Barack Obama’s administration for “answers and accountability.”

The ad begins: “December 2010, U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry [was] gunned down along the Arizona-Mexico border.”

“Found at the murder scene? Two assault rifles linked to Operation Fast and Furious,” a narrator says as Terry’s photograph appears.

Read the rest here.

I hope this ends up on every television in America. Fast and Furious should be on everyones mind before the elections roll around.

Father kills man sexually abusing his daughter

By now, most people have read or at least heard of this story.

Despite receiving tremendous support from nearby residents who say he was justified in his actions, the Texas dad who beat his 4-year-old daughter’s alleged molester to death near Shiner, Texas is remorseful for taking a man’s life, KRIV-TV in Houston reports.

I'm sure he is remorseful. Taking a life is a major thing to most people. But when balanced bt the fact he was defending his daughter, maybe he can rest a little easier.

Well it seems that now, some liberal asshat has decided that the father has violated the criminlas rights.

"James Harrington, director of the Texas Civil Rights Project in Austin, said the dad had the right to “defend” his daughter but suggests he may have gone to far due to “anger.”

Oh? Really? The criminal was sexually assaulting the mans 4 year old daughter.

Texas penal code is pretty clear and it appears that the Texas father was not only morally justified but legally as well.

According to the penal code:

(a) A person is justified in using deadly force against another:
(1) if the actor would be justified in using force against the other under Section 9.31; and
(2) when and to the degree the actor reasonably believes the deadly force is immediately necessary:
(A) to protect the actor against the other’s use or attempted use of unlawful deadly force; or
(B) to prevent the other’s imminent commission of aggravated kidnapping, murder,
Sexual assault, agravated sexual assault, robbery, or aggravated robbery.

Harrington reportedly went on to say that, without specific knowledge of the case, he was “surprised” that the girl’s dad had not been charged yet.

Charged with what? Being a good father? This guy is in Texas and doesn't know the law or how it works? Every homicide (the taking of a life by another) in Texas is presented to the counties Grand Jury. That's the way it was done all of the years I lived there. Justified or not, it is up to the Grand Jury to make the call. I predict that when this goes in front of them, it will be one of the fastest "no bills" in the history of Texas.

There has even been talk that the attacker was in the country illegally. So what. He was assaulting a 4 year old girl. His legal status has nothing to do with the fact that he is a pedophile.

I hope that the little girl will be OK after this and that her father can come to terms with what he did. All he really did is what every father should be able to do, he defended his family. And the liberal asshat's that think more of the criminals rights than the victim can burn in hell right along with the pedophiles they defend.
