[TWG: I'm interested to see how the two-faced, spineless gun grabber Romney responds to this letter. Either way, I'll take it with a grain of salt. Actions speak louder than words. Especially in Romney's case.]
A letter asking presidential candidate Mitt Romney to make good on his words of support for the Congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious “gunwalking,’ and for his campaign’s words of condemnation for the Obama administration invoking executive privilege, is being sent to the Mitt Romney for President campaign today. Written jointly by this correspondent and citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh of the Sipsey Street Irregulars blog, Romney is being asked to commit to revoke the executive privilege claim, and to instruct full cooperation from the Department of Justice in assisting with, instead of obstructing the investigation.

[TWG: Every last one of those scumbag, gunrunning TREASONISTS belong in handcuffs awaiting trial and punishment accordingly for their TREASON.]
While Justice Department and ATF officials (reportedly including key players from the Phoenix Field Division at the time Operation Fast and Furious was being implemented) pore over the Office of Inspector General draft report during the required review and comment period, Arizona attorney, author, civil rights activist and blogger David T. Hardy, reminded his readers yesterday of an earlier report that, in his words, “spells out ‘gunwalking.’”…(Con’t)
Obama bullying Gallup … DOJ is suing them
We are a little over two months short of dictator:
“What do you think of the Obama Administration threatening the Gallup Organization for essentially issuing a veiled warning about the tinkering of the unemployment numbers?” Sodahead, August 24, 2012 (thanks to Armaros)
In a move that could have chilling First Amendment consequences, the Obama regime this week showed that it’s willing to use the full weight and power of the Justice Department to pummel any media outlet that doesn’t toe the party line.
Within days of the Gallup Organization issuing, essentially, a veiled warning to the Obama gang about tinkering with unemployment numbers, Obama’s DOJ jumped, jackboots first, into a multi-million dollar legal action against Gallup, in a case initiated by a former Obama operative.
Others have noted that the DOJ action occurred after Gallup had Mitt Romney ahead of Obama in its polling for a few days. But as we’ve pointed out , it’s not Gallup’s horse race numbers that have the Chicago gang concerned. This far out from the election, Likely Voter numbers are about as convincing as David Axelrod’s combover. What Axelrod and his co-conspirators are really worried about are Gallup’s jobless numbers. …..(Con’t)
[TWG Note: The crimes committed by the obama regime continue to stack up. Isn't it comforting to know that obama and his marxist swine appointed a BANKER to head the ATF Fast & Furious schemes? I suppose JP Morgan owes the obama regime a lot of favors for the BILLION$ in "stimulus money" the obama regime shuffled into their pockets as well as the hush-hush on JP Morgan using those BILLION$ to outsource jobs.]

In a startling assertion almost buried in last night’s “On the Record” interview with Greta Van Susteren on Fox News, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa indicated he has criminal charges in store for an ATF official implicated in the Fast and Furious “gunwalking” operation. Referring to “double-dipping” by former Assistant Director William Hoover, hired by the J.P. Morgan financial services conglomerate while he’s on leave from ATF and awaiting retirement, Issa let slip with what should be considered a bombshell announcement, and a precursor for things to come.
“This is somebody who our reports said perjured himself before the Congress,” Issa charged. “We don’t understand why J.P. Morgan would hire somebody who’s lied to Congress, and will probably be referred for criminal prosecution.”…(Con’t)
[TWG Note: Of course, the dims would never let a good crisis go to waste. They're working feverishly to punish law-abiding citizens who didn't commit the crime. We knew this barrage of legislation would billow out of our State Legislatures following the Colorado massacre. That's how "gun control" works. Too bad so many have no idea WHY our Second Amendment was written. Thank a so-called "educator".]
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Democratic leaders in three big states have used this summer’s mass shooting in Colorado to push bills that would crack down on assault weapons and ammunition sales, rekindling a debate that has not gained much traction in Congress or on the presidential campaign.
In Illinois, Gov. Pat Quinn proposed that his state enact a strict ban on assault weapons, similar to California’s. New York lawmakers have proposed wide-ranging legislation that would limit weapons purchases….(Con’t)
[TWG Note: No surprises here. The lying marxist PIGS within the B.O. regime have worked diligently sticking it to our military members and Veterans. It makes me sick to my stomach to see any of our military members and Veterans supporting those marxist pigs. SHAME ON THEM. Our Veterans throughout history did not fight FOR fascism. They fought AGAINST fascism. It's an abhorrent betrayal to our Nation and to all Veterans who have served this once great Nation throughout history. If you are a member of our military, and especially if you're a Veteran, who supports obama, YOU ARE A DISGRACE AND YOU ARE DERILICT IN YOUR DUTIES. YOU TOOK AN OATH, AND THAT OATH DID NOT EXPIRE WHEN YOU TOOK YOUR UNIFORM OFF.]
Obama Campaign Sues to Restrict Military Voting
by Mike Flynn 2 Aug 2012
President Barack Obama, along with many Democrats, likes to say that, while they may disagree with the GOP on many issues related to national security, they absolutely share their admiration and dedication to members of our armed forces. Obama, in particular, enjoys being seen visiting troops and having photos taken with members of our military. So, why is his campaign and the Democrat party suing to restrict their ability to vote in the upcoming election?
On July 17th, the Obama for America Campaign, the Democratic National Committee, and the Ohio Democratic Party filed suit in OH to strike down part of that state’s law governing voting by members of the military. Their suit said that part of the law is “arbitrary” with “no discernible rational basis.”..(Con’t)
