The Congressman granted a Justice Department request for an extension late last evening.
But no announcement was made as to whether or not a new deadline, if any, was issued to Justice.

Diary of an ATF whistleblower

In a February exclusive special feature at Townhall Magazine, one of the original ATF whistleblowers who went public with the agency's illegal operation, Fast and Furious, presents his diary describing how Justice Department corruption led to the scandal being investigated by Congress.
Vincent Cefalu is a 30-year law enforcement veteran, 24 of which were spent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, commonly known as the ATF. Cefalu asserts that the current environment at the ATF is so corrupt that honest officers cannot act without fear of reprisal from dishonest officers and corrupt supervisors.
Cefalu begins his story here:

GOP upset--Santorum sweeps all three Tuesday contests

In a key GOP upset, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum, R-PA,has swept all three Republican contests held Tuesday, denying front-runner Mitt Romney a fourth victory.
Santorum won the Colorado and Minnesota caucuses plus the Missouri non binding primary. Romney was expected to win big in Colorado based upon his strong organization and the fact that he beat John McCain resoundingly in the state in 2008.
But Republican voters this year appear to be increasingly hesitant about Romney.

Church declares war on Obama

In an unprecedented move against a sitting President, the largest Christian denomination in America has declared war on Barack Obama due to a provision in the new healthcare law that religious groups say violates the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of religion.
The announcement came yesterday from the Catholic League.
The League, which represents the nation's 70 million Roman Catholics, declared that it would mobilize the Church to take the fight "to the streets" if necessary to stop the Obama abortion mandate that would force religious groups involved in healthcare to pay for procedures they believe are antithetical to their faith.

Behind the masks--the big money donors to Romney

Some of the most negative and brutal ads that were aired in the run up to Saturday's Nevada Republican Caucuses were those paid for by an entity known as 'Restore Our Future.' The entity ran similar ads in Florida, South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Iowa prior to their primaries.
Restore Our Future is known as a 'Super PAC' and is connected to GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
When the Supreme Court ruled last year that corporations can contribute funds to political campaigns through these committees, corporations have freely and legally used Super PACs to make large donations to candidates.
But it is illegal to mask a donation by making a contribution in the name of another person.

Fox, Drudge gang up on Gingrich

On the night of the results of the Nevada Republican Caucuses last evening, Fox News and Matt Drudge appeared to deliver a double sucker-punch to Newt Gingrich, in spite of the fact that the former House Speaker came in a distant 2nd in the voting.
Mitt Romney won with 43% of the vote in a state where delegates will be awarded according to a sliding scale based upon how many votes the various Republicans candidates were able to garner. 
Gingrich received 25% of the vote, Ron Paul 19%, and Rick Santorum 12%.
Romney was expected to win the state by a comfortable margin as he did during the 2008 race for the Republican nomination, which he eventually lost to John McCain.
Following the results of the vote last evening, Gingrich gave a news conference in the presence of his supporters in Nevada. This writer listened to every word of the Speaker's remarks and his subsequent question and answer session with reporters...
