According to credible ATF sources, officials heavily involved in Operation Fast and Furious and named as partially responsible for the program's failure by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and the House Oversight Committee have been stripped of their government security clearances while some have been fired, demoted, and transferred. Criminal charges are also reportedly pending.Those in the White House who were equally responsible will walk.

Methinks the NRA, being in DC, has a tendency to think it knows better than the people on the ground in the middle of the fight. They also put their own best interest first. If what's good for gun owners and that interest conflicts? Well....
H/T to Sean.

Republicans won big, running as Republicans, in 2004. But once they took control of Congress, they started acting like Democrats and lost big. There is a lesson in that somewhere but whether Republicans will learn it is another story entirely. - Thomas SowellThey lost this time and think the solution is to act like Democrats, and no they won't learn the appropriate lessons.

Man Arrested After Telling Kids Santa Isn’t RealShoulda called an ambulance not the cops.
Churches offering concealed-carry weapons training to attract membersThe point of the article is that churches desperate with declining membership are offering concealed carry classes to appeal to a different clientele. Couldn't possibly be they decided to meet the needs of their community? If I were inclined to attend church it sure wouldn't be at one that preached I had no right to self-defense.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Senate bill rewrite lets feds read your e-mail without warrantsSeems like a clear violation of our Fouth Amendment rights to me. It's clearly worth an email to your representatives in Congress. Oh, and to Law Enforcement. I don't care if my rights make your job hard. You guys have the power to take away a person's freedom. That should be hard.

Pee-peegate: 3-Year-Old's Whiz Leads To $2,500 'Public Urination' Ticket
So good luck in 2016, Republicans. You had this one in the bag, high unemployment, an annual deficit of a trillion dollars, Fast’n'Furious, Benghazi, bailouts, Obamacare. All you had to do was find a conservative that could rally the people to vote and it would have been a cakewalk. I suspect you don’t believe that, and that you will try to go even more liberal in an effort to gather votes that you cannot get, throwing away the core voters that want conservative, responsible government. Nature abhors a vacuum and a real third party will fill your place in American politics. Does anyone remember the Whig party? - as826mThe word is three million Republicans couldn't hold their nose and vote for Romney. I don't know whether to be pissed at them for holding to their principles or myself for not. The truth is I can't say I won't once again vote for the lesser of evils in 2016.
H/T to Borepatch.

Surprise: NYC Mayor Bloomberg endorses Obama, citing…Climate change, because it might be real. That's his cited reason? I wouldn't vote for my mother if Bloomberg endorsed her. Sorry, mom.
"It is very important to us to tax guns because we know that guns are the sources of the incredible violence we have in our neighborhoods," Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle told a news conference. She said 29 percent of guns used in crimes in Chicago were purchased legally in suburban Cook County....and now zero percent will buy their weapons legally in Cook County. Why pay the tax when all you have to do to avoid it is cross over to the next county to buy your gat. People vote with their dollars as well as their feet. Only the best and brightest run for office in Chicago.
This leads me to the final point. There are so many reports – many of them false by design – that the picture is worse by the day. What happened at Benghazi happened. The horrible picture developing before our eyes is one of obfuscation, dishonesty, diversion, lies and excuses.Any moment now, I'm expecting the White House to claim executive privilege on all Benghazi related materials. It's what they do when the cover-up fails.
Here’s a note to the DoD and State Department. Listen very carefully. Wolfowitz says “it would appear.” That’s not even nearly good enough. We won’t accept appearances, or anonymous sources. There is a paper trail of deployments, locations, arming orders, force sizes, and so on and so forth. There is yet another paper trail of orders, requests, directives and other communications that fateful night.
We won’t stop until it is all public and assessed by all of us. We will get it, eventually. We will all see it. We will know who did what, who said what, what assets were where, who lied, who equivocated, and who came clean. We will name names.
The players who have any integrity left should come clean now and spill everything. It will go better for everyone in the long run. But it won’t change the facts. And the facts will be found out. That’s our promise.
