Fast & Furious, (dumb & dumber) - Why did ATF break the law, & Holder is in contempt?
Obama deleted a provision that was voted 99-0 to prohibit any future F&F ops. The NRA position is that this flop of an op was an attempt to dismantle the 2nd amendment towards a path of a despotic nation. "To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them." -George Mason
Do you agree with this statement? Or is the NRA crazy?
The two are not mutually exclusive views. Mason was not far from right, and the NRA is made up largely of people who are a little bit crazy. That there are many effective ways to enslave people, the most popular currently being excessive taxation and public debt, does not mean Mason missed the mark by much. That most every US institution is made up largely of people who are somewhat crazy does not mean the NRA is an exception.
As for Holder, he is in the first rank of the most corrupt attorneys general in US history. It's clear enough the ATF was ordered not to interfere with Fast and Furious's gunrunning, which means the order originated with either Holder or Obama. He should have been impeached some time ago. Had he been, he wouldn't now have to stonewall a contempt citation. He'd have been better off leaving office before this. Now it's too late. He has to stay where he is in order to shelter the criminals, among whom is himself.
Absolutely agree. Holder himself made the statement that "we need to use any means to change people's attitude toward guns". He's also proven himself to be a sneak and a liar. The 'Blame Bush' strategy isn't working because with a little research it's easy to discover the Bush program ended in 2007 and was administered in conjunction with law enforcement and the government of Mexico. Just another example of Obama and his administration's incompentence.

Luckily I tuned into Fox News to find why Obama is using Executive Privilege to block Congress from hearing about Fast & Furious, the gun-running program. What I learned was that Obama took advantage of a Bush program to follow gangsters buying guns in the U.S.. The deal was to spy on them when...

In the wake of the ill-conceived Fast & Furious program, the death of a border agent Brian Terry, and hundreds, maybe thousands, of Mexicans being killed by the drug cartels using these guns, does Obama taking executive privilege on Fast & Furious suggest a cover up to you?In your opinion,...

The Independent report has been issued and its finding has vindicated AG Holder in the "Fast and Furious" operation. As he has insisted from the beginning of the highly partisan House committee investigation, AG Holder had no knowledge of this rouge operation and shut it down once he...

Why doesn't Romney hit on Obama on the Fast & Furious fiasco?It wasn't a botched operation - it was a criminal one.

Maybe that is what Fast & Furious was really all about. Perhaps the obvious connection between mass killings with the use of American firearms both in Mexico and the USA is what the strategy of the ATF and the Justice Department in Arizona (Brewer's state)was becoming to realize after-all....
