Pamela Geller: "This Makes Nixon and Watergate Look Like a Prank"

Nationally-known Fox News contributor, columnist, and blogger Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs has picked up the story of the Gunwalker scandal, stating today on her blog, "This makes Nixon and Watergate look like a prank."
Geller's comments came in response to the Obama Administration's release of certain selected records last evening, indicating numerous contacts between the former Agent-in-Charge of the ATF Phoenix Field Division and the White House.
The documents show that contrary to previous White House statements claiming that no one in the Executive Branch knew anything about the illegal scheme, also known as 'Operation Fast and Furious,' the White House was actually in constant contact with the alleged perpetrators of the scandal in the Phoenix Field Office.

And then tell me whether or not 'getting adjusted' is either possible or desirable.

Big Shakeup at ATF Underway?

Rumors are swirling today regarding a possible big shakeup at the ATF involving top management and agents down-line. One source suggests that the first phase of the shakeup may be underway as early as today.
In addition, other sources allege that as part of the shakeup, the DOJ may be looking at the elimination of the ATF entirely, assigning its function to the FBI.
These possibilities are in direct response to the monumental, historic scandal engulfing the DOJ, the ATF, the FBI, DHS, the State Department, and several other federal agencies. Project Gunwalker, or Operation Fast and Furious, has exploded onto the national stage as perhaps the biggest government scandal in U.S. history on the strength of its sheer scope and breadth, and its 'unintended consequence' of the murder of hundreds of Mexican citizens and at least one U.S. citizen--Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. 
The website CleanUpATF, which served as the earliest indication of deep corruption within the agency leading to citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh's first article which broke the story of the scandal, is abuzz with speculation, some of which is coming from ATF insiders, indicating that the agency is under the gun and is slated for major change at the top.

National Conservative Examiner Exclusive--Martin Rating System for candidates

Before the campaign leading up to the 2008 Presidential election, this writer had determined to watch every debate, news conference, and interview with candidates in both Parties in order to rate them on issues of extreme importance to conservatives. However, there was no rating system by which to do so. The only course of action available, thus, was to develop my own unique instrument by which to gauge how closely the candidates adhered to conservative principles.
It was then that the Martin Rating System was born. The instrument was used to rate candidates in both Parties from 2007 until the general election in November of 2008. The system has also been used to rate the Republican Presidential candidates this year, and the results have been published here at National Conservative Examiner.
That tool will now be made available to you in this National Conservative Examiner exclusive.
You can use the system to do your own ratings of the candidates. The instrument is not scientific. The issues chosen by which to rate the candidates are decidedly conservative. And the ratings are entirely subjective based upon the individual user. The overall score a candidate receives is based solely upon the ratings you give them on the individual issues.
For example, you may determine that Ron Paul should receive a score of 10 on foreign policy. I may determine that he rates only a 3 on that issue. Thus, our overall scores on Ron Paul will be different. The score reflects our own individual perception of how a candidate performs on the issues.
How is this instrument helpful? It helps the user to see, on paper, how each candidate compares to the others, based upon our own unique perceptions. One may even be surprised that a candidate rates as well as they do. On the other hand, one may discover that their favorite candidate does not fare as well as we thought once we look at their performance based solely upon the scores they receive on the ten key issues.   
Here's how it works...

What If...

Some sobering reflections on life....

Much food for thought.

I hope people around me can find some good things in me to remember once I'm gone.

Grassley on Gunwalker--"There's Something Sinister Going On"

In an interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News Monday evening, the contents of which is reported today by Seattle Gun Rights Examiner Dave Workman, Senator Charles Grassley stated with regard to the Gunwalker scandal, 
There’s something sinister going on...They want to do everything they can to avoid this issue. They want to string us along. They want to stonewall us.
Grassley, R-Iowa, has been the point man in the U.S. Senate for the investigation into the Project Gunwalker scandal, also known as Operation Fast and Furious. Although Grassley's efforts have fallen on deaf ears given that the Senate is controlled by members of the Administration's own Party, that may be about to change, as reported in this breaking news article last evening.

Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and committee member, Rep.

More hearings will come, they said. The next people called to testify will likely do so in front of both the House Judiciary Committee and the Oversight and Government Reform committee, jointly.

Gunwalker Bombshell 2--ATF Feared Early Reports of Scandal

In January of this year, nobody was paying attention when two lone reporters first broke the story of the Gunwalker scandal and began a series of disclosures that would eventually capture the attention of several mainstream news outlets. But ATF officials paid close attention. An internal ATF email from January 20 indicates that the agency feared early reports of the scandal.
National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea had written an open letter on January 19, 2011 to the Senate Judiciary Committee informing them of the scandal. Codrea's intent was to alert the committee to the whistleblower status of ATF agents who had placed themselves in danger by disclosing the damaging information, and to urge the committee to arrange for their protection and launch a full investigation into their allegations.
The very next day on January 20, ATF Associate Chief Counsel Barry Orlo sent an internal email to the top management of the agency, informing them of Codrea's open letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee. A copy of the email can be found here.

Gunwalker Bombshell--"There Never Was a 'Sting'"

An ATF source has provided reporters a copy of a letter sent on June 1, 2010 which indicates that the monumental scandal known as 'Project Gunwalker,' or 'Operation Fast and Furious,' was never a sting operation as previously reported. If such an allegation is true, then the official Obama Administration explanation for the operation is entirely false.
The commonly-reported talking point concerning Gunwalker is that it was intended as a sting operation but that it went bad when rogue ATF agents took it in a sinister direction.
But the letter of June 2010, forwarded to reporters David Codrea and Mike Vanderboegh, indicates that nothing about the operation contained any of the elements of a 'sting.' Everything ATF agents did in placing guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels was done in the open and with the approval of their supervisors:

Are Gun Haters Mentally Ill?

Although at least half of his work was later discredited by further research, psychiatric pioneer Sigmund Freud laid the foundation for much of what we know about the human psyche--that part of the brain out of which arises the deep emotional motivation for the actions we take. One of the terms Freud coined to describe one of those functions is 'projection.'  
According to Freud and most practitioners of modern psychiatric medicine, projection is the process by which a person 'projects' onto another person their own motives, emotions, or intentions which they find to be too detestable or otherwise unacceptable to admit.
For example, suppose a member of a large family of siblings rose to forefront of the pack when their mother became terminally ill. This sibling had the time and the good health to care for the parent, providing around-the-clock care at a time when it was impossible or very difficult for the other siblings to do so.
At times in these cases, some families can grow vicious. Suppose, in this case, that a sister to the sibling who is providing the care stated the following: "She's up to no good. Just look at her. Doting over Mama like that. She's doing it only so she can manipulate Mama to change her will and give her most of the estate."
