Issa seeks DOJ documents detailing false information given to Congress

The Washington Post reported Friday that U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., expressed willingness to postpone his committee's vote this week on whether or not to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

Issa's willingness to postpone the vote, however, comes with a major stipulation.

In order to avoid the vote on contempt, Holder must turn over specific documentation related to an official letter that contained false information, which the Department of Justice (DOJ) sent to Congress in February of 2011.

Damaging new evidence contradicts government agencies in Fast and Furious murder

Damaging new evidence has surfaced today that contradicts multiple government agencies on the murder of federal agent Jaime Zapata. The evidence is an official "Report of Investigation" which shows that Agent Zapata had seized 80 weapons in an interdiction near the southern border a few months prior to his murder.

The majority of the seized weapons were Fast and Furious guns that the Obama Administration had illegally bought using "straw purchasers" who would then transport the firearms across the border into Mexico, where they would be placed in the hands of drug cartels.

Zapata was murdered on Feb. 15, 2011. The Report of Investigation on the interdiction of the guns is from August of 2010, four months prior to Zapata's death.

The 2A News Roundup--Top Ten for Thursday, June 14, 2012

All guns and politics from the best gun rights and liberty bloggers on the Internet.

David Codrea reports the latest news on the San Francisco sheriff who became embroiled in a gun controversy.

Kurt Hofmann has information on the latest tactics against gun rights by the "Coalition to Stop Gun Violence."

Mike Vanderboegh says that the Leftwing nutcases are blaming him for the so-called "Issa conspiracy theory" concerning Fast and Furious. Uh, the conspiracy is no "theory." It has been proved.

Way Up North says he is going into "semi-retirement" as a blogger, I am sorry to say. The good news is he is not giving it up altogether.

Brigid comments on plastic guns, such as Glocks. I agree with her, Glocks are fine, but I prefer the wheel guns and firearms made with wood and steel.

WRSA has news indicating that the ChiComs exercise censorship over the content of Hollywood films. Maybe it's time for Cold War II...along with another Joe McCarthy to rat out Commies in the film industry.

Stand Up America posts the straight scoop on the latest crisis in Egypt, compliments of a mush-brained scheme by Obama, Hillary, and company to push "democracy" (what a joke) in the region. If the Muslim Brotherhood means democracy, then I suppose Adolf Hitler represents liberty. 

Stand Up also reports breaking news that Eric Holder has sent a letter to Darrell Issa this afternoon requesting a meeting on Monday concerning Fast and Furious.

Every Blade of Grass says there is an effort underway to discover whether or not your local police department is using spy drones. Take a look.

Days of our Trailers notes that the city with the most gun laws of any municipality in America just so happens to be raging out of control with deadly violence. So, Chicago, how's all that gun control working out for ya?

ATF agents allege new scandal

Rumors are swirling today among some agents within the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) who allege that a new scandal has rocked the Seattle Field Division.

The agents state that a large sum of money was stolen from the Seattle office by someone in management, who then attempted to cover up the crime.

One agent reports that support staff in the field division office are so distressed by the new scandal that many have resigned in disgust.

New Justice Department whistleblowers seek haven in Fast and Furious scandal

National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea and blogger Mike Vanderboegh are reporting today that new Justice Department whistleblowers have come forward seeking safe haven in the Fast and Furious scandal.
Sources close to the ongoing investigation have indicated that at least one and potentially two officials inside the Department of Justice in Washington have contacted U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., to request that they be given whistleblower protection in light of new information they wish to reveal.
The two whistleblowers are subordinates of Attorney General Eric Holder, one of whom was said to possess information so damaging that it represented the "keys to the kingdom."

Controversial Westboro group targets Billy Graham

The controversial Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas targeted the headquarters Tuesday of internationally revered evangelist Billy Graham at The Cove in Montreat, which is located in the North Carolina mountains. 
Westboro was founded by anti-gay activist Fred Phelps and is known for disrupting church services, funerals, and military memorials in order to spew hate-filled memes at attendees.
Critics say that Westboro is neither Baptist nor a church. The membership consists almost entirely of Phelps' family, and the only known doctrine and activity of the group is an anti-gay, anti-Jew, and anti-Catholic agenda that expresses itself in targeting individuals and groups for vitriolic epithets.
Many of the individuals and groups that are targeted are not even associated with the support of the so-called "gay agenda."

The 2A News Roundup--Top Ten for Tuesday, June 12, 2012

All guns and politics from the best gun rights and liberty bloggers on the Internet.

Denise Simon at Stand Up America uncovers more corruption emanating from the Mecca of Obama thuggery--Chicago. Wait till you see what happened there prior to the financial meltdown of 2008, and going all the way back to when Obama first rose to power in the region.

The New York Liberty Report has the complete scoop on the NYC school principal who would not allow the singing of "God Bless the USA."

Mike Vanderboegh reports that Eric Holder has rejected calls for his resignation during a testy Senate hearing.

The Wandering Minstrel comments on what should happen to Holder.

Mike McCarville points to an article indicating that Senator Rand Paul has damaged his credibility in the liberty movement by endorsing Mitt Romney. I wouldn't be too hard on Sen. Paul, though. In politics, such moves are often carefully crafted for reasons that are unseen by the public. Don't forget that Paul has been on our side. Let's not eat our own.

GunRights4US has an interesting post on the public sector vs. the private sector.

Nicki says that from now on Gary Johnson will be included in Zogby presidential polls.

The Smallest Minority offers an opinion on why gun rights advocates are winning the battle in the public square.

The Stiletto provides some VERY interesting tidbits of info on current events today. 

Squeaks gives us an update on her life. I like to check in with her every now and then to see how things are going. It's never dull over at Squeak's place.

South Carolina primaries result in chaos

In South Carolina today both the Republican and the Democratic Parties held their primaries to choose candidates for state and local offices. The process resulted in confusion, anger and chaos for hundreds of voters.

On May 2 the South Carolina Supreme Court ruled that many of the challengers running against incumbents in both Parties were ineligible due to a technicality. At least 200 candidates were thrown off the ballot.

But the court's decision came too late to get some of the candidates removed. Thus, their names remained on the ballot. This meant that if a citizen cast a vote for such a candidate, their vote did not count.

The 2A News Roundup--Top Ten for Monday, June 11, 2012

All guns and politics from the best gun rights and liberty bloggers on the Internet.

David Codrea blasts CBS News for claiming credit for breaking the Fast and Furious story in its announcement today that the House will vote on a contempt citation against Holder. Unfortunately, this has been standard fare with the MSM and even the NRA, which also claimed the credit. This is unconscionable, given that David and Mike Vanderboegh, as everyone here knows, were the first to break the story.

Alphecca reports that carrying an unloaded gun packed in a locked case inside of a suitcase to a NYC airport is all it takes to get you arrested.

Around O-Town notes that it appears that Holder is implicated in a variety of crimes, not just Gunwalker.

WRSA wants to know where the heck is the outrage over the spy drones flying all over America.

Way Up North shares a photo that shows us what dangerous Alaska street gangs are like. Mean dudes, those. Worse than Hell's Angels.

Tam says that Romney is not making enough political hay out of Obama's statement that the private sector is doing fine. She says Obama ought to be whacked over the head with it until it splinters due to its outrageous falsehood.

Brigid provides a report on her adventures at the gun and the home range.

Days of our Trailers has some neat photos from 'take your daughter to the range day.'

John Jacob H says that every time he posts something, somebody gets their panties in a wad (or shorts in a bunch, whichever the case may be). Well heck, I get in trouble every single day with stuff I write. It comes with the territory. Glad to see he's not going to let it stop him!

Pamela Geller adds her characteristic searing commentary to the discussion about the contempt vote against Eric Holder in the House.

Vote on Holder contempt citation only the beginning

The U.S. House of Representatives announced today that a date has been set for a vote on a contempt of Congress citation against Attorney General Eric Holder for his failure to turn over subpoenaed documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal.

The vote has been set for June 20, 2012.

House Speaker John Boehner stated,

The Justice Department is out of excuses. Either the Justice Department turns over the information requested, or Congress will have no choice but to move forward with holding the Attorney General in contempt for obstructing an ongoing investigation.

Conservatives targeted in deadly and costly free speech attack

A mounting controversy increasingly has attracted the attention of the national media involving a concerted attack on free speech by political extremists. The target is conservatives. The tactic is to endanger the lives, reputations, and financial stability of the victims.

Michelle Malkin catalogued the attacks in a detailed post at her blog on Saturday.

Stories of the attacks began to surface on social networking sites two weeks ago when there were reports of bogus SWAT team calls to the homes of conservatives across the country. Those reports gradually made their way into the local and national media.
