Team Obama's Brother Sharpton Moment by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 Attorney General Eric Holder's people have no shame.

Holder, Blago, Richardson: Triangle of Sleaze by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 It was a rough week for the corruptocracy.

The Accountability Charade by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 You can't spell "accountability" without "A," "C" and "T." But in Washington, government officials routinely get away with "taking personal responsibility" by mouthing empty words devoid of action. Heads nod in collective agreement that mistakes were made. But heads never roll. The Obama administration has... Read More

We first mentioned blog reports on a Project GrenadeWalker scandal last month. (See here). CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson is out with a new report on grenades crossing the border to Mexico.

The other night on Hannity, I said we need an "Occupy Justice" campaign to protest the deadly corruption and incompetence that have infested our Justice Department from Day One of the Obama administration (vid here). A friend on Twitter wrote back that what we really need is a "Liberate Justice" movement to free Americans of... Read More
President Obama will meet the press at 11am Eastern to peddle his "jobs" bill again. Yes, I hope the reporters bombard him with questions about Solyndra, LightSquared, the green jobs racket, and the union slush funds masquerading as economic recovery. But with so much Fast and Felonious news breaking, this is a prime opportunity to... Read More
Three are dead. Seven are wounded, some in critical condition. Keep the victims and their families in your prayers.

His friends and colleagues can't believe their "peaceful" community activist friend would do such a thing. Time for... Read More
Question: Why does Eric Holder still have a job? Answer: Because he has thrived on incompetence, stonewalling, and corruption his entire career. Why would the outcome of Fast and Furious be any different than all the rest of the scandals that make up his long track record of putting political interests of the public interest... Read More
Bloodier and bloodier it gets. America, please pay attention. This is the deadliest, most dangerous scandal of the scandal-plagued Obama administration. GOP investigators and House and Senate watchdogs are doing all they can. Whistleblowers inside ATF and gun shop dealers across the country have risked their lives and livelihoods to tell the truth. They need... Read More
In case you missed it -- and believe me, the Department of Injustice is hoping you missed it on this 9/11 memorial weekend -- yet another violent crime (perpetrated by a suspected illegal alien )has been linked to Obama Fast and Furious guns.

The truth is still seeping out, despite Team Obama's best efforts to cover up and shut up the Fast and Furious whistle-blowers.

In discussing the quiet resignation of U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke... Read More
We've heard from day one of this scandal that it went straight to the top. We've heard nothing but denials. Now, that there's e-mail proof that it did, the White House insists they knew nuttin', absolutely nuttin', about how bad Fast and Furious was. The Los Angeles Times reports today (h/t William Amos): The three... Read More
No one wants to talk about long-standing, brown-black tensions in southern California and elsewhere. When I do, I'm called a RAAAAACIST and accused of "trying to pit the Latinos against the African-American people." Law-abiding victims of such violence know the truth, though. Ask the family of Jamiel Shaw. Or Cheryl Green or Shatavia Anderson. Today's... Read More
My column today keys off yesterday's post on the "reassignment" of acting ATF director Kenneth Melson and the re-shuffling of several other Fast and Furious-entangled bureaucrats. The White House hopes the moves will quell spreading outrage over the deadly scandal. Not bloody likely. David Codrea, one of the bloggers who led breakthrough reporting on Fast... Read More
Maybe it's time to start a Jackboot Watch feature. We've got DOJ lawyers going after Gibson guitars. There's the ongoing Fast and Furious debacle.

Dance of the lemons.
Doin' the Melson shuffle... Both Fox News and the WSJ are out with breaking news about the corruptocracy's latest dance of the lemons. In the wake of the ongoing Fast and Furious scandal, ATF acting head Kenneth Melson will be shuffled around until the heat dies down... Looks like another case
And you wonder why London's gone to hell in a hand basket. The anti-gun bigotry there is so dominant that Olympic shooting champions are being treated like criminal influences on British children. Via the London Evening Standard (hat tip: Cameron Gray)... Children will be banned from watching shooting events under Boris Johnson's Olympic ticket giveaway.... Read More
Yesterday, I gave you full coverage of the attempted second jihad attack on our soldiers at Fort Hood.

Meet Greg Ebert and... Read More
On Monday, I noted brewing questions about a Fast & Furious-like gunwalker operation out of Tampa, Florida, that allegedly put weapons in the hands of MS-13 gangsters in Honduras.

In the wake of swelling outrage over the Obama administration's fatally botched Fast and Furious straw gun purchase racket, the DOJ is punishing the very whistleblowers who protested the scheme in the first place. This is a head fake. Instead of exercising more control over lawless bureaucrats within its own agencies, the Obama administration is... Read More
Thanks to vigilant pressure from 2nd amendment bloggers and House GOP Oversight and Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa, the White House is set to throw acting ATF director Kenneth Melson under the bus over the Project Gunrunner/ Fast and Furious scandal (all background links below).

Yesterday, I brought you up to speed on GOP Sen. Charles Grassley's fight with DOJ over its Project Gunrunner stonewalling. Today, GOP Rep. Darrell Issa warns that DOJ's intransigence could lead to contempt proceedings. He released a letter this morning to acting ATF chief Kenneth Melson. You can read the PDF version here. The key...

Tick, tick, tick. Another Project Gunrunner disclosure deadline approaches for the Obama Department of Justice. And GOP watchdogs are hammering away at yet another stonewall erected by corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder. Late last week, Sen.

Stop ATF's anti-gun zealots by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2011 For 30 years, Chicago banned handguns. The crime rate skyrocketed. Murders soared. Gangs blossomed. Desperate city officials even considered calling the National Guard to combat the out-of-control violence that all the "community organizing" in the world couldn't curb. The Supreme Court struck down Chicago's... Read More
Graphic via CBS News I've been tied up on other things, but have been following the Project Gunrunner scandal closely -- and delve into the basics in my syndicated column today. To its credit, CBS News gave this deadly Obama culture of corruption nightmare mainstream coverage last month. But it's been brewing on the blogs... Read More
I sympathize with GOP Rep. Peter King's security concerns. But he's doing an embarrassing Chicken Little dance in the wake of the Tucson massacre. Apparently compelled to jump ahead of all the liberal gun-grabbers in Washington, GOP Rep. King has drafted a bill to ban law-abiding citizens from carrying firearms within 1,000 feet of government... Read More
Liberals in Ohio have quite a track snooping on private citizens. Democrat state officials abused their access and plundered through Joe the Plumber's records. And now, the Ohio Democrat Party has been caught trying to illegally obtain info on concealed carry permit holders in the Buckeye State in order to bombard them with anti-gun propaganda.... Read More
