    If You Want to Stop Crime in America, Start in the White House and Work Your Way Down

    Over 200 people are confirmed dead, including at least one US agent, with “Fast and Furious” weapons which were directed into the hands of drug cartels in Mexico at the order of our Justice Department and the BATF.

    Under oath Attorney General Holder denied any knowledge of the operation or active participation in it and continues to deny his involvement to this day:

    “My testimony was truthful and accurate and I have been consistent on this point throughout. I have no recollection of knowing about Fast and Furious or of hearing its name prior to the public controversy about it.”

    Holder also lashed out at some of the more extreme charges being leveled by Republican lawmakers, such as a statement this week by Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) that federal officials who approved the “gun-walking” technique should be charged as accessories to murder.

    Source: Politico

    However, CBS News reports that Holder did, in fact, have knowledge of the operation in July of 2010, and received at least seven memos where Operation Fast and Furious was mentioned by name.


    View Larger Image

    The bottom line is that this is Eric Holder’s Justice Department, and he is doing everything he can to distance himself from an operation which he, as head of the department, oversaw.

    While Mr. Holder maintains his innocence regarding the perjury charges being thrown at him by Republicans, there is perhaps a more serious charge that he should face, as suggested by Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu and others:

    Via Steve Quayle:

    Absolutely [the ATF have been accomplices to murder]. Not just these individual agents, but people up the chain of command who have made the decisions. The US Attorney for Arizona just resigned. This is a big deal. Now it’s one step away from Eric Holder. This is his Department of Justice. There are people who have lost their lives.

    At the very least Mr. Holder should be immediately investigated for perjury and should resign his position as Attorney General of the United States because he was either complicit in the execution of the operation or ignorant to what was going on within his own agency, which shows clear incompetence on his part. What’s equally as alarming is that Mr. Holder’s boss, President Obama, has taken no action regarding this situation and has remained eerily quiet. Perhaps he, like his law enforcer, was involved in some capacity. Again, at the very least he should be forcing a resignation at this point.

    Americans, under the watchful eye of the Eric Holder Justice Department, have been sent to prison for life for much less serious crimes.

    What we’re talking about here are the deaths of at least 200 people, and countless unnamed others, and Eric Holder, our top lawman, has his hands all over it. Where we come from this is usually called ‘being an accessory’ or ‘accomplice,’ though in Washington it seems to be business as usual.

    This is just the latest example of the modern American system of justice, where the average Joe is arrested for crimes like selling lemonade or imprisoned for life for possession of marijuana, while the well-connected live within a completely different world where lawlessness runs rampant, the deaths of innocents are not investigated, trillions of dollars in fraud are ignored, and the Constitution is treated like an outdated policy rather than the fundamental law of the land.

    It’s like Papa Slavo always used to say: “If you want to stop crime in America, start in the White House and work your way down.”

        Yes, he definately would be a prime candidate for a date with a hemp necktie. I wonder how long he would last post SHTF? Maybe he kept some of those Fast and Furious weapons for himself? I am curious if him and those like him would be eliminated on sight after the SHTF or if they would be allowed to die a natural death? It is a nice daydream that maybe some issues of justice might be settled in this life instead of the next one.

That was news, that was prosecutorial, and damning even though it all but stopped a war in El Salvador that was on at the time. No this isn’t news….Obama gives 2,000 weapons to drug lords that lead to 200 deaths….no news there.

        The gun shops knew the sales were bad and were told by BATF to go ahead with the sales. If you want criminals look at the Injustice dept. Better yet ask why the sales were pushed by a corrupt administration. Maybe to discredit all law abiding gun owners?

    4. In any government/corprate entity, the head of the department is the one who is responsible for the actions of that department.

      Eric Holder is the head of his department and therefore responsible for the actions of his department.

      If he claims he was unaware, then under our justice system, ignorance is not an excuse.

      I am tired of weenies slipping through the handcuffs of justice. It’s time for our government to act like MEN and not weenies.

        • John Q. Public says:

          What is illogical is for men to make God small so that their pea-brains can “understand” the One who created everything from nothing. Then, having made God small like themselves, they figure they can replace him, and, with more pea-brain logic decide that “they may be as gods.” (Genesis 3:5)

          Bad “logic” yields bad results.

          Why “must” it be as our tiny human minds would like?

          Scientists decided they had become quite smart and didn’t need God any more, so they chose a representative to tell Him so. When the scientist went to God and politely announced that He wasn’t needed any more, God offered to go away, but suggested that, since scientists knew so much, that before God went away, He would like to have an old-fashioned man-making contest. The scientist agreed to God’s suggestion, so the scientist bent down and scooped up a handful of dirt, but God interrupted him. “No,” God said, “You don’t understand. First you have to make your own dirt.”

          I respectfully suggest that you accept what God has told us about how things are and how He wants them. Stop second guessing HIm.

        The tea is an astringent and will draw the venom out.

        This is the pincher strategy and I’d much rather work to insert Christian morality into a flawed system than to be murdered by the criminal enterprise known as communism.

            Restraint must be present in all that we do. When people agree to live together in a society they must certainly exhibit some restraint or “self control” to live peaceably with their neighbors. If that self control exists due to a belief in, and respect for, Judeo-Christian principles then man can live in liberty. It is my fear that as America, and the rest of the world, eschews these principles we are faced with anarchy or total restraint imposed by an omnipotent government.

            What I see in the current demontrations is a demand for more government control. When one sees the hostility toward God and His law exhibited by all levels of government one can only conclude that unless there is a resurgence of traditional church teaching then we are doomed to experience all of the evils that man can dream up.

      Mrs McGillicutty’s 5th grade class takes a trip to the museum in the year 2199…

      Guide: Now, students, this item here is what was once known as a lawyer. Notice the arrogant lift of the nose, and the beady little eyes. Archaeologists believe the eyes were a genetic mutation, which helped them see money in low light conditions or at long distances.
      Kid:What’s that thing in it’s hand?
      Guide: That was called a briefcase. Inside, you would most likely find an assortment of papers covered with phrases written in Latin.
      Kid: What’s Latin?
      Guide: We think it was an ancient language, probably out of use long before the lawyers emerged.
      Kid: Why did they use it then?
      Guide: Mostly to confuse the non-lawyers. Evidently, non-lawyers were very afraid of the Latin language. It scared them so much, they’d even pay the lawyers lots of money to speak it for them, so they didn’t have to.
      Kid: What did they say in Latin?
      Guide: Oh, nothing really. Just a bunch of nonsensical jibberish. For instance, they’d say ‘corpus mandamus’, meaning ‘a corpse on a pogo stick.’ Or ‘pro bono’ meaning ‘a professional bono.’ But, the sillyness of the meaning didn’t seem to matter to the non-lawyers. They were just glad they didn’t have to speak the dreaded language themselves.
      Mrs M: And can you tell us what happened to the lawyers? Why they went extinct?
      Guide: The theory that most of our historians agree on is that the lawyers somehow contracted a disease, probably from handling too much contaminated money. It evidnetly caused them to break out in a rope-burn type rash around the neck and then they died. Most of the fossils we’ve found seem to have fallen to that mysterious disease.
      Mrs M: Did any of them survive the disease?
      Guide: A few specimens have been found in a fetal position, lying in cellars. We think most of those probably died from a lack of money. It seems that the lawyers needed a tremendous amount of it to live, and when they couldn’t get it, they died.
      Kid: How come there aint no monument to the lawyers? Like there are for the plumbers and carpenters and soldiers and stuff?
      Guide: We’ve asked that very question ourselves. And now, it seems we may have found one! Just in the last few months, archeologists have unearthed what they think may indeed be a monument to the lawyers. It’s a bronze replica of an oak tree, almost 30 feet long. It has a few shreds of a rope like material in the branches and a plaque near the trunk that bears a message. Of course, it’s written in a pre-twitter language, so it’s very hard to decipher. We believe it says simply ‘This Is For All The Lawyers.’

        Though neglected by the post-Vatican 2 “Novus Ordo” (New Order), Latin is the universal language of the Church. Until these times of diabolical disorientation, Latin was a special blessing for us because, unlike “living” languages, there is no slippage in the meaning of Latin words. Latin words are anchored to their original meaning, so are less susceptible to manipulation by men for their own nefarious purposes.

        The large-scale substitution of the vernacular for Latin following Vatican 2 has resulted in a pandemic of doctrinal confusion and moral disarray within the Church.

        They must all make reparations and those reparations would certainly exceed the simple amount of “debt.” Certainly those found guilty must be made penurious besides any other due penalties, but there must be justice: fair trials for all to see.

      The deployment of these weapons was a calculated strategy specifically designed to undermine the very core of this country’s integrity. All part of a bigger picture to destroy the quality of life that the many past generations of Americans worked so hard to create.

      We live in a War Zone. The very enemy we fight has been infiltrating this country and methodically breaking it down from within long before any of us visiting this blog were around. And now, from every direction one turns, we are being bombarded physically, mentally and emotionally, and it’s only going to get worse.

      How it plays out is anyone’s guess. They are presently in the drivers seat, but with a few well placed ‘legal’ bombs, they are very vulnerable. And not all forces stand with those hell bent on death and destruction. We will see great people rise up, like the honorable Ron Paul and Sheriff Paul Babeu, and great movements rise up. The key is to pick your battles wisely and conserve “energy”. You’ll need it in the long haul. It’s going to be a long, dangerous Campaign.

      Ready to get your hands dirty and donate some blood? I don’t know anyone at this blog who would back down from that challenge. We all pretty much know, as preppers, how to defend ourselves, but I think the new strategy might entail activating a strong collective offensive, overpowering them with numbers, on whatever level that manifests itself on.

    37. Think about it says:

      Before I begin, I am taking the liberty of equating Crime with Corruption. In our form of Constitutional government, corruption is criminal. Continuing in that vein, a wise man told me, about 40 years ago, “… Around the biggest pile of money, you will find the biggest pack of thieves!” I have used that statement all my life and it has never failed to provoke thought. The biggest piles of money are wherever the taxes are collected: our county courthouses, our state capitols, and….Washington D.C. And if we fall for some sort of world government, the biggest pile of money will be there.

      So, think about it, Top down? Corruption doesn’t BEGIN in Washington. It begins at home…, wherever home is. Washington is just its “settling-in” place; graduation, so to speak. No, the corruption begins in our own City Councils, school boards, County Commissions, etc. This is where the favors begin. This is where the connected seek political preference.

      We all learned, early in life,that everyone has some character flaw. Not everyone has the same character flaw. Those who study the Bible call it a secret sin. Everybody has one. It could be a lust for power, money, sex, drugs, booze, etc. But, EVERYBODY has one. Politicians, like all people, try to keep that a secret. The duty of a lobbyist is to ferret out that secret sin and become its ally and provider. In that regard the lobbyist is like a pimp. He is dangling an apple in front of Eve. The lobbyist then knows how to supply whatever the politician wants. He does this with an unlimited supply of money. He can supply sex, drugs, money, whatever the politician wants, in return for some favor.

      Once corrupted, a local politician is encouraged to seek higher office; first state, then federal. You get the picture. When the politician gets to the state or federal level, the lobbyists at those levels already know his vulnerabilities. He is easy to manipulate. I do not know the number of lobbyists in Washington, relative to the number of Congressmen or Senators, but I am sure it is high. When you recognize what it is that lobbyists do, it always involves soliciting favors. Favors can constitute favorable laws or a distribution of MONEY. Whose money? Yours? Mine? Ours? We must remember that government has no money of its own, only what it has taken (some say “stolen”) from the people who have earned it.

      So, corruption does not start in Washington and “trickle down.” It starts at the local level and “trickles up.”

      Therefore, it is my view that lobbying should be recognized as encouraging theft. If it results in theft, it should be punished as conspiracy to commit theft. Lobbying should be viewed as a felony.

      If you read all the way through this rambling, Thank you.

      Looks more like a true case of FUBAR and some really strange permutations in the depths of the federal law enforcement.
      Seems more like a darker version of the Marx Brothers(for those who still remember who that was).Would be nice if even most of the crap like this would be confronted and punished.BUT,it’s like a massive cow manure wagon that was being filled for decades as it rolled slowly to fields.At last Congress,A.K.A. REPOCRATS(I.E. Both “parties” in both houses) have finally managed to drunkly drive it so badly that it tipped over.”Can’t blame us not our fault” they whine,And the field is still a mile off.Where do we start to put it right?The “yippee Ki yo” drunken cowboy/field-hand REPOCRATS keep on drinking from the cup of “strong drink” being poured out copiously by the likes of UBER Rich folks like the Kotch bros. and their Ilk.Wonder why no taxes are even being CONSIDERED to lower the debt?Totally due to the the nutjob(and his UBER-Rich pocket book) who made the “red” side of the REPOCRATES swear and sign a WRITTEN VOW and PROMISE to NEVER EVER raise taxes on the UBER RICH,the Bankers and the Corporations,no matter how dire the crisis the county is in,period.They took the cup and drank deeply from it and cried “more,more we want even more!”
      Add to this the Corporate welfare for oil companies,Agra businesses,absolutely no accountability for the Bankers.These “well educated and bespoke suited”(and EXTREMELY well paid) morons are doing the same stupid Shit AGAIN as we speak!The exact same way they were doing before and THEN cried out for the MASSIVE federal aid money to cover THEIR debts(and sorry asses at our expense)Add two wars of occupation,(one of which was bogus,I might add) What’s left in the till for the 95% of the rest of us,crumbs?
      The UBER-Rich race madly on to buy their eighth multi-million dollar house,$100,000 cars and over the top lavish life-style on the money they earned by moving their factories overseas,over charging us for food stuffs and fuel as the “middle-man”,and their on-going machinations and manipulations of the so-called “free market” of Wall-Street(what a misnomer!!).They and their hired lackeys in the media complain vociferously how many of the rest of us who can’t find a job to support our families on Mickey Dee’s salary are “lazy welfare slackers”(over a MILLION applied for the 50,000 “available” jobs,slackers indeed).
      Things can’t continue this way and the REPUBLIC(not a democracy,check with Thomas Jefferson on that one if you think I’m wrong)remain viable for very much longer.The UBER-Rich hate and fear the rest of us,hence the F&F kind of FUBAR.
      Never fear,though,the Day-star is rising soon on these “Sons of Darkness”.
      CHANGE is COMING,and THEY cannot stop it,resist or alter it to keep their privileged lifestyle !!
      I most likely said too much,like the Scientists who “blew the whistle” on BP’s Gulf destruction via the “Fixed” leak.They ALL have “mysteriously” died in either deadly car “accidents” or sudden heart attacks(even though they had no existing heart problems before).All of them within a few months of telling the truth.

      Something that really takes me back as a kid…I have seen a very healthy population of rabbits on some privately owned timber company land I have access to and China Mart had .410 shells with #4 shot. POA gonna be making some Hassenpfeffer in a couple of weeks :)

      Yeah, it’s got nothing to do with Zero & My peeps but it is about putting meat in the pantry & freezer.

      Good meat. We’re gonna have 3 pressure cookers going….oh the hot work of it all.. ;)

      After reading most of these comments I am as concerned about the educational system of this country as about the political system.

      The OWS protest theater would be funny if America’s situation were not so dire. Despite some news media sensational make-believe hype, these mild protesters obviously do not pose any type of threat to TPTB. If it were so, they would have been immediately dispersed. OWS may be corrupted by Applebaum, another duo citizen traitor. Past time for lots of hangings.

      Aren’t the BATFags the folks who murdered 81 people in Waco, Texas under color of law ? Over a $200 tax ?
      Their explainations of the Fast and Furious scheme just don’t hold water. This was a scheme to create a crisis that the gun-grabbers already had a solution ready for.
      These guys were folowing policy from above…whoever authorized it is an accesory to murder. Mexico said words to this end.
      Let the Mexicans put ‘em in one of their jails..
      Let me see….we didn’t secure our border after 9/11; we
      did it during 2 world wars…the border patrol ran down every set of footprints coming accross the border.
      Oh yeah we put Ramos and Compean in jail to make sure any border patrol agent thought twice about doing his job. So who are they trying to kid ?

    51. “If You Want to Stop Crime in America”

      … get rid usury. Interest on debt.

      -That’s- the slavery mechanism that squeezes people to the point of mental illness and beyond.

      Get rid of it. Do it tomorrow.

      The world would instantly become a slightly nicer place to live.
