US Border Patrol helicopter forced down by gunfire from Mexico

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter operating near the Mexican border Texas was forced down after taking gunfire from people firing from Mexico.  An article from Breitbart states that the helicopter was part of a team interdicting a narcotics load and working with the U.S. Border Patrol.  The operation occurred near the headquarters of the Los Zetas drug cartel.

One has to wonder if the Los Zetas were one of the Mexican drug cartels that the Obama regime supplied weapons to.

I am prepared to be underwhelmed by our Dear Leader’s response to this armed attack from a foreign country on US federal agents.  The Mexican drug cartels have declared war the US.  Hopefully the response will be something stronger than supplying them more weapons payed for by the American taxpayer.

Update: CBP now has armored Blackhawks on the Mexican border.

Round Up Post

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Joe “Plugs” Biden’s son Hunter was booted out of the Navy for failing a mandatory drug test.  In this case, he tested positive for cocaine.  Hunter was only the Navy for about month before his illegal drug use was detected. He needed, not one, but two special waivers to enter the Naval Reserve in 2013. One for his age (i.e over 40), and one for his prior drug conviction.  Waivers are usually given special skills in short supply, not “public relations”, which was Plugs Jr’s Navy job.  It’s pretty clear that the only reason he got those waivers was that his dad is our Dear Leader‘s bullet proof vest. I’m kinda surprised that this story even ran the New York Times.  I’m not surprised that they buried the story on page A22 of the print edition.  If this had been the son of a senior Republican elected official, this would have been front page, above the fold news.  The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

Speaking of Presidents, AoSHQ shows how a President should behave. Here is a hint, it isn’t spending more time on the golf course than in intelligence briefings.

Back to one of Barry’s many, many scandals.  Sharyl Attkinsson is still digging up fresh dirt on the Obama so called “Justice Department” illegally running firearms to Mexican drug cartels.

One of the so called “reporters” at CBS “News” is flaunting her ignorance all over Twitter.

It’s good to know American still has real heroes.  Example: Veteran stands up for 2nd Amendment at Chicago anti-gun forum

In democrat controlled Los Angeles, CA, police have been sending out patrol cars that collect the licence plate number of every car around them.  These “Law Enforcement” agencies have refused to release any information about the data they have collected because, wait for it,  every single car seen is under investigation.  Really.

There was a major Civil Rights victory in Texas.

Not good enough to work in the Obama White House

Sunday, June 9th, 2013

The continuous flow of scandals, felonies, lies and cover ups coming from the Obama White House reminded me of this exchange from the TV show Archer.

Cyril Figgis: How do you keep track of all these lies?

Sterling Archer: Practice Cyril. Lying is like 95% of what I do.

Cyril Figgis: In your job.

Sterling Archer: Sure.

Sorry Archer, 95% just isn’t good enough to work in the Obama White administration.

Case in point, White House Spokes Weasel Jay Carney.  He has moved well beyond the typical spin control required in the job and right into Baghdad Bob territory.  Plenty of video evidence of that.

Let’s review:

The Entire Obama White House staff, and numerous members of the Obama executive branch, lied repeatedly, in fact often, on National TV, about the murder of four Americans, including an Ambassador in Benghazi.  That is documented.  Proven over and over again.  Which is why most leftists will claim it’s ‘not a big deal’, since they can’t deny it or blame President G.W. Bush.

The Obama regime lied repeatedly over the IRS multiple violations of the First Amendment rights of Conservative groups.  The Obama cultists’ explanation of this is particularly hypocritical, since they are claiming the Tea Party groups were asking for it by wearing a short skirt, or reading the Constitution. The Cato Daily Podcast, which you should be listening to, interviewed one of the top people at the D.C. branch of the ACLU. This fellow felt this was a big fornicating deal.  It was deliberate targeting of a group practice of free political speech.  A clear felony level violation of the First Amendment. The ACLU is taking the classic Liberal position here, which is the territory of Libertarians these days.  The self identified “progressives” are being true to form, since they never were fans of free speech or the market place of free ideas.

The Obama regime lied, and continues to lie, about their Fast and Furious program in where it supplied semi-automatic weapons to Mexican drug cartels.  A program that resulted in the murders of over 300 Mexican nationals and at least one US Federal Agent.  If this was as above board as they claim, why is our Dear Leader‘s top officials stonewalling any attempts to find out the facts?

Bottom line, our Dear Leader promised the “most transparent administration ever”, and instead he has gone into an information blackout and raised the administration’s paranoia well past the levels of the Nixon administration.  Don’t forget his previous War on Inspector Generals.

It is also interesting to watch all the far left extremists Obama cultists back pedal to defend the actions of their Lightbringer that they would have screamed bloody murder and flooded the streets protesting if anybody with a R after their name had done it.

“So called “compassionate” liberals who are more concerned about Gov. Romney’s tax returns than the 300 dead Mexicans killed by Obama’s Fast and Furious program are neither compassionate or liberal in the classical sense.”

“…if you think Bush using his Constitutional authority to replace U.S. Attorneys is a giant scandal, but shrug your shoulders at the federal government sending guns to Mexico, where drug cartels use them to kill a U.S. Border Patrol agent, then you are a hopeless partisan hack who is literally willing to overlook murder to advance your political agenda.”

Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and the Shameless Cover-Up by Katie Pavlich

Here are the details about the blood drenched Obama policy of supplying Mexican drug lords with firearms, while at the same time working to deny Americans their Second Amendment Rights. Not only have numerous Mexicans lost their lives to the Obama policy of having the ATF supply firearms to Mexican Drug cartels, US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed by a Mexican drug cartel member using a weapon supplied by the Obama adminstration.

What did Obama know and when did he know it?

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

By way of Ms. Malkin, comes this LA Times story that shows the Obama White House knew about the corrupt ATF “Fast & Furious” program very, very early on.

Newly obtained emails show that the White House was better informed about a failed gun-tracking operation on the border with Mexico than was previously known.

Three White House national security officials were given some details about the operation, dubbed Fast and Furious. The operation allowed firearms to be illegally purchased, with the goal of tracking them to Mexican drug cartels. But the effort went out of control after agents lost track of many of the weapons.

The supervisor of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives operation in Phoenix specifically mentioned Fast and Furious in at least one email to a White House national security official, and two other White House colleagues were briefed on reports from the supervisor, according to White House emails and a senior administration official.

Our Dear Leader‘s administration has responded to the “Fast & Furious” scandal by continuing their war on transparency. ATF Head Kenneth Melson is being shuffled out of office.  It is as if the Obama administration doesn’t want him to answer any questions about the “Fast  & Furious” scandal.

Even the Obama cheerleaders at CBS News are starting to use the word “coverup.”

Congressional investigators tell CBS News there’s evidence the U.S. Attorney’s office in Arizona sought to cover up a link between their controversial gunwalking operation known as “Fast and Furious” and the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Terry was murdered in Arizona near the US border last December. Two assault rifles ATF had allegedly allowed onto the street without interdiction were found at the scene.

But the US Attorney’s office working both the Terry murder and the “Fast and Furious” operation did not immediately disclose the two had any link. Two Republicans investigating the scandal, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) say there’s evidence that officials at ATF and the US Attorney’s office sought to hide the connection.

HT to Ace for the CBS News “coverup” story.
