There are five key accusations against ATF and DOJ made by ATF whistleblowers and other sources within FedGov:
1. That they instructed U.S. gun dealers to proceed with questionable and illegal sales of firearms to suspected gunrunners.
2. That they allowed or even assisted in those guns crossing the U.S. border into Mexico to "boost the numbers" of American civilian market firearms seized in Mexico and thereby provide the justification for more firearm restrictions on American citizens and more power and money for ATF.
3. That they intentionally kept Mexican authorities in the dark about the operation, even over objections of their own agents.
4. That weapons that the ATF let "walk" to Mexico were involved in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, as well as at least hundreds of Mexican citizens.
5. That at least since the death of Brian Terry on 14 December, the Obama administration is engaged in a full-press cover-up of the facts behind what has come to be known as the "Gunwalker Scandal."

A prominent libertarian constitutional lawyer and civil libertarian has drafted an article of impeachment against President Obama over his attack on Libya, throwing down a legal gauntlet that could be picked up by some Congressional Republicans
Bruce Fein, a former Reagan administration official in the Department of Justice and chairman of American Freedom Agenda writes in his 15-page argument of Obama's course that "Barack Hussein Obama has mocked the rule of law, endangered the very existence of the Republic and the liberties of the people, and perpetrated an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor."
Fein is a small-government conservative who worked on the impeachment of President Bill Clinton and also called for the impeachment of President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney, and his work doesn't represent the Republican Party line. But it comes as some Republicans on the Hill, led by Senator Rand Paul, object vociferously to Obama's decision to strike targets in Libya without Congressional authorization.
"He's been more bold than any other president," said Fein, who said Obama has failed to secure congressional approval for his military action in a much more brazen way than previous administrations.

"Eric Holder braces for shutdown. In an effort to reassure the public, the FBI will continue to do nothing in the murder investigation of Brian Terry"
Now we will actually have an excuse for doing nothing."
More and more Latinos are wising up to President Obama's phony immigration two-step.
They include Univision anchor Jorge Ramos, who was until recently the administration's favorite Latino journalist. Ramos earned the honor by gushing over Obama during the 2008 election run.
The newsman asked Obama some tough questions about his immigration policy that the president couldn't answer.
Bravo. Obama needs more scrutiny. Left-leaning Latino advocacy groups -- the National Council of La Raza, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund, et al. -- have a three-pronged strategy: "See no evil. Hear no evil. Speak no evil."
On March 15 the House Energy and Commerce Committee passed H.J. Res. 37, a resolution of disapproval that would reverse the Federal Communications Commission’s “net neutrality” regulations put forward last December but set to take effect in mid-2011. The resolution is heading for a House vote tomorrow, April 7. It will face a steep climb in the Senate, but one that is not insurmountable.
The new rules have the FCC claiming jurisdiction over all the Internet as arbiters of how Internet Service Providers (ISPs) carry on business, from pricing to “blocking” and prioritizing traffic. The FCC placed themselves as sole authority for administering punishment for those who disregard the decrees of this august agency. Some of the details of the December regulations described as “high-level” have still not been made public but the presidential “kill switch” claim for emergencies, and controlling all links between the United States and the rest of the world are expected along with a monitoring system for affordability and capacity purposes.
The problem with “net neutrality” is that so many take the term quite literally, believing the government just wants to keep the Internet a neutral medium and that the FCC is totally dedicated to, as its chairman has stated, protecting “the freedom and openness of the Internet.” But as we’ve come to know, whenever the government interferes, the result is a distorted and uncompetitive market and loss of individual freedoms.
The FCC is not tasked, as is Congress, with making laws. As with all things connected to big government -- consider the IRS, EPA, ObamaCare, FDA, etc., -- the FCC would become a regulatory law unto itself, a gigantic bureaucracy restricting freedom and ingenuity while stifling competition and harming broadband investment through price controls. The FCC is also supposed to be an independent agency with no oversight from the Obama Administration, but thanks to Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) that illusion has now been destroyed.
Rep. Issa cites White House records indicating FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski visited the White House 81 times from January 2009 to November 2010, an almost unheard number of visits, calling into question just who is determining the FCC’s agenda. One of those visits was four days before the oddly simultaneous announcement of the proposed “net neutrality” orders by both the White House and the FCC. Issa had asked in late 2009 for transparency in the matter of Genachowski's visits and the Obama administration's role in FCC policy. Genachowski was to provide a log of all the meetings and the emails between the White House and the FCC that took place for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Genachowski took until February 2011 to even respond to Rep. Issa and still has not furnished the requested information.
Because the Internet has become such an incredible force for alternative information and instant communication, it’s no wonder the government would want to have a hand in controlling it. Government oversight of the Internet would be a violation of the First Amendment if any limitations on the exchange of information occurs. The Internet has flourished exactly because our government has maintained a hands-off approach to it. That will change if the FCC’s power grab is not reversed.
Americans have come to depend on the Internet, so opposing a government takeover in this area is vital. There is no major cybersecurity threat that private enterprise cannot handle better than the government, nor are there any problems with Internet Service Providers that savvy consumers can’t cope with by switching companies.
With a vote expected in the House on April 7, please send your message to Congress immediately.

With Wasserman-Schultz (love that hyphenated last name, don’t you?) appointed chairPERSON of the DNC, it’s out in the open now that the democrat party is really the party of communists. And with this appointment, the demise of the DNC is all but assured – or at least I’m praying so.
My God- watch Ryan’s response at about 2:00. It’s priceless:
Paul Ryan's budget is a positive step
One of my favorite hobbies for several years now has been keeping track of former “civil rights” celebrities after their fifteen minutes of undeserved media fame are over. It is an excellent way to demonstrate how political correctness has corrupted American journalism.
Everyone in America has at least a passing familiarity with these victims of White “racism,” but few are familiar with their trials since then, which the mainstream media has refused to give the same amount of inordinate attention.
The astonishing popularity of Rebecca Black's "Friday" video — which became the YouTube meme of all memes in the course of a wild six weeks — has mystified many critics.
Was it shared and watched so wildly because it was so bad? Certainly the overwhelming judgement on the part of viewers is that it is atrocious — and yet it is hard to know what that means, since 85 million people not only watched the video but also downloaded the song, bought the ring tone, and devoured every available bit of news about the singer and the song.
Using the principle of "demonstrated preference," this music video ranks as the most popular in human history.

- - The threatening package containing a bloody pig's foot sent to Rep. Pete King (R-LI) was as much a racist assault as it was religious hate mail, The Post has learned.
The rambling note accompanying the porcine parcel proclaimed that "white bitches" would soon be naming their sons Mohammed, said a Capitol Hill source.
The note contained anti-Semitic slurs, called the pig's foot a "Jew foot," taunted "kiss my black Muslim ass," and said King -- who is Catholic -- was targeted because of hearings he held on the radicalization of Muslim Americans.

“I think that he is headed for defeat based upon three things.
"One, Obamacare. Two, the terrible situation with spending and the budget deficit and the fact that the economy is affected by that and jobs aren’t being created. And third, his attitude about America not being an exceptional nation. Probably for the last reason more so than any other, he ought not to be re-elected.

The rest need to go.
Senate declines to take up 2007 Obama statement on congressional authorization for attack
The Senate declined on Tuesday to take up a resolution that would have affirmed a 2007 statement by then-Sen. Barack Obama that a president must gain Congress’s permission before authorizing a military attack.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who introduced the measure as an amendment to the Small Business Administration (SBA) authorization bill, wanted his colleagues to go on the record in support of, or opposition to, Obama’s remarks.
As a presidential candidate in 2007, Obama said that “The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation.”
Obama neither sought, nor obtained, the consent of Congress before deploying U.S. forces to Libya to enforce a no-fly zone after Moammar Gadhafi threatened his country’s citizens with violence.
Paul said he wanted to see the Senate go on the record on such a crucial matter........The vote was 90-10.
