OK, OK….. I’m starting to like Judge Jeanine Pirro these days. She is starting to call this horrid regime out in NO uncertain terms. Too bad more “journalists” aren’t telling the truth in this way…..

Nearly a decade of carefully planned effort to challenge federal Commerce Clause power will see another landmark on Monday, March 4th, when MSSA v. Holder has oral argument before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland, Oregon. MSSA in the case caption is the Montana Shooting Sports Association whose President, Gary Marbut, crafted the original Montana Firearms Freedom Act (MFFA) in 2004 specifically to lay the groundwork for this current litigation.
Holder answer on contempt charge shows disrespect for more than Congress
Reacting to statements by Attorney General Eric Holder that he did not respect members of Congress, House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa issued a statement today calling the head of the Justice Department “arrogantly dismissive.”
“I have to tell you that for me to really be affected by what happened, I’d have to have respect for the people who voted in that way,” Holder replied. “And I didn’t, so it didn’t have that huge an impact on me.”
Issa: White House pursuing an ‘enemies list’ in Washington
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) said Thursday that a team at the White House is pursuing him and others on its “enemies list” in an attempt to quell dissenters in Washington.
“Not since Richard Nixon have we seen a president who puts together an enemies list and has a whole team pursuing it, but that’s what’s happened in this administration,” Issa told “Fox and Friends.” “It’s sad; it’s not the America I want to have going forward. I sincerely hope after the election, regardless, the American people will have made a statement that we won’t tolerate this.”
Issa was responding to allegations made by right-wing website The Daily Caller, which reported earlier this week that emails it obtained show the Department of Justice (DOJ) colluding with the liberal advocacy group Media Matters.
The Daily Caller says the emails show the administration worked with Media Matters to attack reporters challenging the DOJ over the botched gun-walking scandal known as “Fast and Furious.”
Issa was mentioned in some emails between DOJ Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and a Media Matters staffer. In the emails, Schmaler seems to be explaining the intricacies of the case, but some on the right say this is evidence of the administration spinning news to the liberal media.
“[Schmaler] serves at the pleasure of the president. These political appointees do the president’s bidding. So would I like to see her go? Of course. I want to see the entire team packing their bags starting Nov. 7,” Issa said. “But I think the point is, these people represent the culture that President Obama brought in to Washington. A culture of division. A culture that embraces the concept that the 1 percent is evil and somehow the rest of America somehow needs to punish the 1 percent. I guess I’m part of the 1 percent, for purposes of their attack.”
Attorney General Eric Holder will hold a hearing Thursday morning to address the inspector general report on the Fast and Furious operation.

[TWG: Not sure why anyone thinks anything new will become of this. We already KNOW they purposely handed thousands of firearms to mexican drug cartels and islamic terrorists. We already KNOW those firearms were used to murder American citizens and Mexican citizens, along with border patrol officials. We already KNOW this whole effort is treasonous and we already KNOW the obama/hitlery regime will stop at nothing to disarm Americans. This newest “report” may contain information we have not seen before, but does anyone really believe any government officials will be tried and punished accordingly for this treasonous act? Clearly, that will not be the case.]

A statement released moments ago by the Press Secretary for the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform gave reporters and other interested parties a “heads up” in anticipation of receipt of the Operation Fast and Furious report from the Office of Inspector General.
“We believe the IG report will come out at about 2 pm [Eastern time],” Becca Watson of the Committee advised recipients by email. “Oversight, from either me or Frederick [Hill, the Committee’s Director of Communications], expects to have a statement in response out after the initial release from the IG.”…(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)
A video posted yesterday by The Washington Guardian, featuring Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Acting Director B. Todd Jones that warns against agents taking complaints “outside the chain of command,” is being met with alarm and skepticism by politicians, agents and others determined to get to the bottom of Bureau and Department of Justice corruption charges. In a related simultaneous development, a memo reminding ATF management of “Rights and Duties Under the Whistleblower Protection Act” is being dismissed as a cynical ploy by an activist attorney…(Con’t)
