*New* Fast and Furious secrets
from government emails

SharylAttkisson.com, by Sharyl Attkisson

Original Article

Posted By:Tianne, 6/8/2017 7:00:21 AM

Six years late, we have new insight into the government’s secretive Fast and Furious operation in which federal agents purposely let thousands of assault rifles and other weapons be trafficked from the U.S. to Mexican drug cartels, where they were used in many murders and other crimes. A new House Oversight Committee report contains Department of Justice emails that the government improperly withheld from Congress and reporters. The report was released Wednesday as the Oversight Committee held a little publicized hearing on still unanswered questions six years after the investigations began. Below are excerpts from the Congressional report that give

Comments:
A very long and painstakingly documented report by Sharyl Attkisson proving that her original reports of the withholding of information and deception by the DOJ and others were factual.

Behold...a REAL investigative journalist. This woman is a gift from God, telling the truth no matter how much she is attacked and vilified.

Someday the top award for journalism will no longer be the fake news Pulitzer Prize (known in our house as the Pullet Surprise), but the Attkisson Award.

The sheer volume of documented efforts to subvert Congressional oversight are breathtaking. Watching them at work, it´s clear thee Republicans efforts at truth-seeking are far outmatched by the diabolical planning of the Left.

What on earth does "we have intell on MCain?" mean?

I love how they continue saying that F&F did not walk guns even after the weapons started showing up at high profile crime scenes in Mexico.

It was like they convinced themselves it did not happen in spite of the blood.

Letting the left intentionally misdefine terms is giving away a chunk of the battle without a fight. Illegal aliens are not ´undocumented immigrants´, and semiautomatic military styled rifles are not ´assault rifles´.

Ms. Attkisson is generally an exceptionally good and honest reporter but is guilty here of repeating the antigunner´s lie of calling a semiautomatic civilian rifle an "assault rifle".

Assault rifle is a specific military technical term, and it means a fully automatic rifle - a machine gun. None of the rifles released were machine guns.

Words mean things and calling an Indy Pace car Camaro an "Indianapolis race car" is similarly inaccurate.

In the case of the misused term "assault rifle", it is intended to confuse the unfamiliar person, as part of a carefully planned PR strategy, into thinking a legal self loading rifle which fires one shot each time you pull the trigger, like a revolver, with a machine gun. This intended confusion has the intent of instilling fear and revulsion in military styled rifles for political reasons.
I doubt that Ms. Attkisson has this intent to confuse, but she is inaccurate and needs to correct this point.

When Nabra Hassanen was killed by Darwin Martinez Torres, the media rushed to blame Islamophobia and Trump. The truth was simpler. It was the left’s own Illegalophilia that killed the Muslim teenager. Torres, an illegal alien from El Salvador, had no interest in Hassanen’s religion. He got into an altercation with her friends. Hassanen happened to be the one he caught when her friends left her behind. The murder happened in Fairfax County. Earlier this year, Fairfax County Chief of Police Ed Roessler had assured illegal aliens that they had nothing to worry about. The police were not going to do anything about

Can a Divided America Survive?

The United States is currently the world’s oldest democracy. But America is no more immune from collapse than were some of history’s most stable and impressive consensual governments. Fifth-century Athens, Republican Rome, Renaissance Florence and Venice, and many of the elected governments of early 20th-century Western European states eventually destroyed themselves, went bankrupt, or were overrun by invaders. The United States is dividing as rarely before. Half the country, mostly liberal America, is concentrated in 146 of the nation’s more than 3,000 counties — in an area that collectively represents less than 10 percent of the U.S. land mass. The

James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter who opened fire on dozens of Republican congressmen and staffers at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia, on Wednesday, had a list of Republican names in his pocket that was recovered by the FBI, The Daily Caller has learned. The news that the shooter had a list of names suggests the shooting was not a random outburst, but instead appears to be a premeditated political assassination. The list was written out on notepad paper and found in the shooter’s pocket, according to multiple sources with intimate knowledge of the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing

Congress passes long-sought
VA accountability bill

WASHINGTON — Congress approved long-sought legislation Tuesday to make firing employees easier for the Department of Veterans Affairs, part of an effort urged by President Donald Trump to fix a struggling agency serving millions of veterans. The House cleared the bill, 368-55, replacing an earlier version that Democrats had criticized as overly unfair to workers. The Senate passed the bipartisan legislation by voice vote last week. It will go to Trump later this week for his signature. The measure comes after a 2014 scandal at the Phoenix VA medical center, where some veterans died while waiting months for appointments. During the presidential

Barack Obama, who was responsible for the nation’s security, insisted that military spending be included in the “sequester” that automatically cut government spending. Testifying before Congress Monday evening, Secretary of Defense Mattis said “the damage has been severe” to our military as a result No enemy in the filed has done more to harm to combat readiness of our military than sequestration. We have only sustained our ability to meet American’s commitments abroad because our troops have stoically shouldred a much greater burden.

Sessions, though a Southern gentleman, let him have it.

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee over allegations of collusion with Russia. It was an accusation he called a “detestable lie.” But in the face of those allegations, Sessions said he was more determined than ever to continue the mission he swore to uphold. “The innuendos, the leaks you can be sure will not intimidate me,” Sessions said. “In fact, these events have only strengthened my resolve to fulfill my duty to reduce crime, to support our federal, state, and local law enforcement officers who work on our streets every day.” The attorney general said his

After learning that an actor dressed to look just like his father gets brutally murdered on stage in a production of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Donald Trump, Jr. asked, “I wonder how much of this ´art´ is funded by taxpayers?" Well, thanks to some digging by Adam Andrzejewski, founder of the federal watchdog OpenTheBooks.com, we now know the answer: Data at OpenTheBooks.com shows that over $4.1 million in federal, state and city grants funded the New York Shakespeare Festival (NYSF) – the parent company to Public Theater and its production, Shakespeare in the Park – over the past three years.

I know a number of government officials and employees who like and respect former FBI Director James Comey. Much has been written about how damaging his Thursday testimony was for President Trump. It’s easy to find articles such as these on NBC, in the Washington Post and in The Atlantic. The fact that Comey was willing to give testimony that sometimes reflected poorly on his own behavior doesn’t necessarily mean he told the truth on all matters, but seems to weigh in his favor on the honesty scale. The following is a compilation of some of my questions, comments and observations

“I’m George Bridges, I use he/him pronouns.” That was how the president of Evergreen State College, a man with a PhD in Sociology, an MA in Criminology and the backbone of an incontinent weasel began his apology to the radical leftists who had terrorized his school, shouted racial slurs at a professor and other students, and driven an entire class off campus. Then he paid respect to the “elders past and present of the Squaxin Island Tribe.” The university was once a place of reason and learning. It is now a sick, sad totalitarian joke.

President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour

A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,

I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers

Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner was shredded by social media users over the weekend after he called for an “all out war” to resist President Donald Trump. Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war.

At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
