Justice Department Upset over Apple Encryption

Apple encryption means the company cannot hand the Feds real-time interceptions of text messages. The headline in the New York Times reads: “Apple and Other Tech Companies Tangle With U.S. Over Access to Data.” In an investigation involving guns and drugs, the Justice Department obtained a court order this summer demanding that Apple turn over, in real time, text messages between suspects using iPhones. Apple’s response: Its iMessage system was encrypted and the company could not comply. Government Read more […]

One of the terrorists killed in a shootout had bought a handgun through the Secret government program, Fast and Furious. From the Chicago Tribune: “Assailant in Garland, Texas, attack bought gun in 2010 under Fast and Furious operation.” Five years before he was shot to death in the failed terrorist attack in Garland, Texas, Nadir Soofi walked into a suburban Phoenix gun shop to buy a 9-millimeter pistol.

Eric Holder Aide Called CBS to Stop Sharyl Attkisson

A DOJ Government Employee Made It Her Job to Stop Sharyl Attkisson. “I”m also calling Sharryl”s editor and reaching out to [CBS news correspondent Bob] Scheiffer. She’s out of control.” Those are the words of Eric Holder’s chief press aide, Tracy Schmaler, in an email to White House Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz, regarding steps he planned to take to get CBS Journalist Sharyl Attkisson “under control.” The email was part of 42,000 documents released to Judicial Watch Read more […]

Valerie Jarrett Played Role in Fast and Furious Coverup

After suing to obtain records the Obama Administration refused to release under the Freedom of Information Act, Judicial Watch has learned that the White House Rasputin, Valerie Jarrett, played a role in the coverup after Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about Fast and Furious. The “gun walking” program that wound up delivering hundreds of American firearms into the hands of drug cartel criminals has been the subject of congressional investigations that resulted in Holder being Read more […]

New Movement on Fast and Furious Scandal

I have to admit I had lost hope that we would hear more about the Fast and Furious scandal. While this only inches us a tiny way toward a true revelation of what the what Barack Obama and Eric Holder knew and when they knew it, it is still a positive development. While journalists have sometimes uncovered new aspects of Fast and Furious, it has been quite some time, as far as I can tell, since we have had news from the courts. But now this from CNS News: “Judge Orders DOJ to Provide List Read more […]

Laundering Money for Drug Cartels and Other Evildoers Is Business as Usual for Banks

One of the reasons the media non-coverage of Fast and Furious falls so far short is that no one reports on how our banks are heavily involved in money laundering for drug cartels. The role of banks in helping whitewash Fast and Furious gets little attention,  and the more general record of banks is also ignored as if it could not possibly be relevant. We have told you about the record of banks on this blog, but there are many confirming sources of information. The Washington blog recently Read more […]

Eric Holder Is Angry But His Questions Have Easy Answers

I’m somewhat curious as to why Eric Holder chose this moment to “go nuclear.” Is something up? I am trying not to get my hopes up. ABC US News | ABC Business News Eric Holder decides to speak of himself in the third person as if he were nobly defending someone else and not himself. It sounded weird to me. From ABC News: “Forget about me [specifically]. Look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee,” Holder told the crowd. Read more […]

Democratic Corruption: Michelle Malkin Explains How to Understand It (& GOP Corruption Too)

This column by Michelle Malkin contains an excellent survey of various Democrats who have been caught in corrupt actions. I won’t go through her list. I want to make sure readers don’t miss her introductory statement because I think it shows some much needed insight into the nature of how and why corruption is sometimes covered up and sometimes exposed. Has Nancy Pelosi seen a newspaper lately? (Pro tip, hon: Like the Obamacare monstrosity, you have to read it to find out what’s in it.) I’d Read more […]

More Confirmation: Feds In Bed With Mexican Drug Cartel

Underlings who carried out these evil acts (let me say it again, with expansion: evil, despicable, criminal) are apparently spread throughout the country, with paychecks from various Federal agencies. Similar to Nazi storm troopers and concentration camp guards, they participate in unconscionable deeds by day, and then watch American Idol with their kids at night. From the New American: For over a decade, under multiple administrations, the U.S. government had a secret agreement with the ruthless Read more […]

Breitbart: Mexican News Story Adds Context To “Fast And Furious” Scandal

It has been awhile since we have heard about “Fast and Furious” in the news. Naturally, the mainstream media wants to drop it. But now a Mexican newspaper report adds some context, as reported by Breitbart. U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agents and U.S Attorneys held secret meetings with drug trafficking organizations, especially the Sinaloa cartel, on Mexican soil, revealed Mexico-based newspaper El Universal. The DEA and the U.S. Attorney’s office are both components of the U.S. Department Read more […]

FBI Complicit In Fast & Furious Murder Of U.S. Border Patrol Agent

From the Arizona Republic: A federal agent who exposed the Justice Department’s flawed gun-trafficking investigation known as Operation Fast and Furious says the FBI played a key role in events leading to the 2010 murder near Nogales, Ariz., of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. John Dodson, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, contends that the bandits who killed Terry were working for FBI operatives and were sent to the border to do a drug rip-off Read more […]

Dear Edward Snowden: Don’t Appeal To Felons For Mercy

This makes me mad: (Newser) – Edward Snowden says he hopes international pressure will persuade the US government to stop “persecuting” him with espionage charges but he appears to have as much hope of receiving clemency as he does of getting his old job back. The NSA leaker “violated US law,” White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer says. “He should return to the US and face justice.” Snowden released a manifesto yesterday denouncing mass surveillance and saying that telling the truth shouldn’t be considered Read more […]
