While the use of pistols in the home are helpful for self defense, they’re not the best weapon to use when it comes to protecting property. This is why people need an AR-15. When politicians and gun grabbers tell us we “don’t need” semi-automatic, "assault," or "military style" weapons, they don’t know what they’re talking about and have clearly never survived a riot or a hurricane.
Since NBC sportscaster Bob Costas went on his halftime anti-gun rant on Sunday using words written by Fox Sports Columnist Jason Whitlock, we’ve heard a lot from the media and from uniformed commentators about America’s “gun culture.” The fact is, America actually has two gun cultures and it is important to distinguish them from one another.
During the second presidential debate of 2012, President Barack Obama said, “What I’m trying to do is get a broader conversation about how we reduce the violence generally. Part of it, is seeing if we can get an assault weapons ban reintroduced.” You can bet, he meant what he said.
The 2012 election will be the first in 30 years where the country will see a large organized presence dedicated to the integrity of votes cast, all thanks to voter integrity group True the Vote.
Let’s take a look at the deadly and violent consequences that came as a result of the Obama administration blaming a video after the initial planned attacks in Benghazi and Cairo.
The Department of Justice Inspector General report released three weeks ago about Fast and Furious vindicated only one group of people: Whistleblowers.
"Militant Jihadists behave very differently that secular Marxists,” he said. “There were no soviet suicide bombers.”
The Department of Justice [DOJ] Inspector General [IG] Michael Horowitz testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform committee Thursday and answered questions about his recently released report [OIG] from his office about Operation Fast and Furious.
Today marks the four year anniversary of when ATF Special Agent Jay Dobyns’ house was burned to the ground. The blaze was set to his home while his wife and children were sleeping inside at 3 a.m. Four years later and ATF still hasn’t held a single person accountable within the agency for failing to address threats against his family and hasn’t solved the arson of his home.
An initial look at an extensive report issued by Darrell Issa and Charles Grassley about Operation Fast and Furious reminds us of a few things and also brings us new information: It was suggested Attorney General Eric Holder announce Fast and Furious indictments, more evidence of a gun control motive and more.
“How can it be a burden to ask people to do something they do all the time?”
"How can the President assert executive privilege if there was no White House involvement? How can the President exert executive privilege over documents he's supposedly never seen? Is something very big being hidden to go to this extreme?"
If you’re a conservative, you must read The Great Destroyer: Barack Obama’s War on the Republic by David Limbaugh and What the (Bleep) Just Happened: A Happy Warrior's Guide to the Great American Comeback by Monica Crowley. Then, pass them along to your “undecided” voter friends.
After testifying about Fast and Furious for the eighth time, Attorney General Eric Holder still evades questions, but admits DOJ and White working together on messaging to the the "facts" out about the case.
ATF is counting stolen guns, guns sold to foreign governments by Federal Firearms Licensees under the approval of the State Department and guns ATF and DOJ purposely sent into Mexico through Operation Fast and Furious as “guns being traced back to the U.S.”
In my new book, Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup, I document the conspiracy of senior Obama officials to subvert the Second Amendment, which led directly to the murders of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, I.C.E. Agent Jaime Zapata and countless, faceless lives in Mexico. It debunks the Obama administration’s lies, denials and excuses. This administration was willing to use humans as collateral damage to push a political agenda, and had no shame in doing so. Now, the administration has no shame in covering up their reckless actions.
Although we don’t have all of the facts surrounding the circumstances of what happened between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin, some things are certain. The way the media, President Obama, race baiter Al Sharpton, celebrities, the Congressional Black Caucus and other politicians have responded to the situation, is embarrassing to say the least.
The attorneys of embattled former ATF Special Agent in Charge of the Phoenix Field Division Bill Newell and Phoenix Group VII Supervisor, the group that carried out Operation Fast and Furious, David Voth, are accusing Senator Charles Grassley and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa of making “many inaccurate and harmful statements” and “factual distortions against” their clients.
To keep it simple: Andrew changed media and he did it by fighting, hard.
After thirteen months of investigation in the Obama Justice Department’s lethal Operation Fast and Furious and Attorney General Eric Holder’s sixth time answering questions from Congress on the topic, we are stuck with stonewalling, non-answers and more calls for gun control.
