Friday night document dump contains damaging info on Holder

In an unannounced late Friday night document dump last evening, the Justice Department, at the direction of the White House, released 500 pages of material on the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, also known as Project Gunwalker. The documents contain information indicating that the White House is now willing to sacrifice Attorney-General Eric Holder in order to protect itself.
Until now the White House has engaged in a not so subtle effort to protect Holder, believing that if Holder is taken down, the Obama White House goes down with him. Apparently that tactic has changed.

The call for Fox to bring back Glenn Beck

According to James Simpson in an article at American Thinker yesterday, a major call has been issued for Fox News to bring back Glenn Beck. The reason is the backlash against the growing influence of global financier George Soros at the network.
Not only has Simpson issued a call for the return of Beck but an entire movement has been spurred in support of the idea of Beck's resurrection at Fox in order to provide a counter balance to the growing influence of George Soros.

Breaking--Issa's Inaction: Is the Fix In?

Earlier today is was reported that Congressman Darrell Issa had fired off a letter to Attorney-General Eric Holder demanding that the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform have access to at least 3 DOJ officials who either have been shielded from the committee or have pleaded the 5th.
Issa's committee is investigating the gargantuan scandal of 'Operation Fast and Furious' that now engulfs the Holder Justice Department and much of the Obama Administration.
However, if appearances are to be trusted, it would seem that other than Issa's letter, the response of the committee to the scandal of late has been characterized by inaction, thus begging the question, "Is the fix in?"

Breaking Fast and Furious news--Issa makes demand of Holder

Just minutes ago Congressman Darrell Issa, R-California, Chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued an announcement of a letter he has sent to Attorney-General Eric Holder demanding that he give the Committee access to Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Morrissey concerning his role in the Operation Fast and Furious scandal.
Issa is investigating the scandal in the U.S. House of Representatives. But for over a year the Attorney-General has stonewalled Issa and U.S. Senator Charles Grassley on information they have requested to advance their investigation into the scandal during which the ATF and its parent, the Department of Justice, deliberately sent thousands of U.S. guns to Mexican drug cartels in order to 'prove' that '90% of the guns used by Mexican criminals come from the United States.'
The letter from Issa states the following...

Growing chatter on 'brokered' Republican convention

In political circles inside and outside the D.C. beltway there is growing chatter on the possibility of a 'brokered' Republican convention this summer. This reporter has mentioned over the past several months in several articles and radio interviews that such a scenario is more of a possibility this year than during any election cycle in several decades.
But according to several high-profile sources in the conservative media and among Republican Party activists there is growing talk among not only the rank-and-file members but Party leaders that there is at least a 50-50 chance of a brokered convention this year.

Rand Paul-TSA standoff: a reason to dismantle TSA?

U.S. Senator Rand Paul's current standoff with the TSA at a Nashville airport could potentially represent a perfect reason to dismantle the TSA, at least in the eyes of Americans who are concerned over the trampling on Constitutional rights by the government.
It so happens that supporters of Senator Paul's father, Republican Presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul, are the very ones who have been calling for the dismantling of the agency in light of its year-long attack on the rights and liberties of U.S. citizens who travel through the nation's airports.
The Senator's problems began when he was told at the airport by TSA officials that there was a problem with his scan as performed by the ever-present screening machines, and that he would need a pat-down.

Shock poll: Gingrich leads Romney by 9 points in Florida

One of the most accurate public opinion polls in America,Rasmussen Reports, released a shocker this morning concerning the upcoming Florida Republican Primary on January 31. Newt Gingrich now leads Mitt Romney by 9 points. 
A mere 2 weeks ago Romney had garnered a 22-point lead over Gingrich in Florida, where the former Massachusetts Governor was expected to 'walk away with a big victory' and perhaps even 'wrap up the nomination.'
But in this highly volatile election year in which Republican voters appear to be having trouble making up their minds and in which there has been much waffling and switching back and forth between candidates, nothing is set in stone. Conventional wisdom has not worked. Pundits on all of the major news networks, including Fox, have been wrong.

3 primaries, 3 winners: what it means for Romney

In the race toward the Republican Presidential nomination there now have been 3 primaries with 3 different winners. The presumed front-runner, Mitt Romney, has won only the New Hampshire primary thus far. Rick Santorum was declared the winner in Iowa after a re-tabulation of the vote. And Newt Gingrich pulled off a dramatic come-from-behind landslide victory in South Carolina yesterday.
Romney may yet add another notch to his belt in Florida on January 31. But yesterday's vote in South Carolina places the outcome in Florida in serious doubt.
