The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

Ending Holder through DOJ protest

Written By: Bob - Jul• 08•12

A simple thought struck me this morning about Operation Fast and Furious and the obvious perjury of Attorney General Eric Holder.

I can confirm that career DOJ employees know for a fact that Operation Fast and Furious was not a “botched” law enforcement operation, any more than felony battery is a botched fist control operation. They know felonies were committed by Eric Holder and other political appointees of Barack Obama within the Department of Justice, and that elements of Homeland Security, State, and Treasury were also involved in the conspiracy.

This is hardly a secret, though the heresy of LEOs becoming criminals simply isn’t talked about openly due to a “no snitching” culture that has infected the DOJ every bit as insidious as what we see in crime-riddled urban areas.

It is a mark of shame that more than 18 months after Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was gunned down by Fast and Furious weapons, federal LEOS and lawyers of the Department of Justice have no rebelled openly against the criminality of Operation Fast and Furious, the 302+ dead that were the result of the crime spree, and the cover-up and retaliation that has followed.

There are patriots within federal law enforcement. There are men and women that have taken solemn oaths, and who will risk their lives to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. If they are willing to risk their lives, would they not consider risking their careers by protesting against their criminal leadership? Or is it too much to ask them to make such a potential sacrifice to force justice in the names of hundreds of murder victims?

A public protest against Eric Holder and DOJ political officials would shock the American public out of their stasis, and force the media to acknowledge that Fast and Furious isn’t a political witch hunt, but a deadly criminal scandal that shocks the soul of even experienced apolitical law enforcement agents that love this Republic more than any particular Administration.

Justice is worth fighting for. But is Justice willing to demand it?

    The entire leadership of the DOJ has, IMO, committed criminal depraved indifference, which in many states is 2nd degree murder. Mr. Zimmerman in Florida earlier this year reacted to an immediate situation, a possible deadly threat, and has been charged with 2nd degree murder. AG Holder and others knew in advance that people could, actually probably would die, and he and his deputies are not charged with any crime. The cover-up could also be a RICO offense, it seems to me.

    I have no faith in the righteousness of the people in the DOJ. Peers protect peers. I say this based on experience. While performing audits at a nuclear power plant during pre operational, post construction testing as a subcontractor, I found intentional falsifying of testing on fuel loading equipment, reported it, pushed for penalties and ended up losing MY job. Retesting would have caused a schedule slip and impacted bonuses. Fortunately for me, a VP in my company knew me well and helped me find another job. But to my knowledge nothing changed afterwards, according to my sources, and the NRC reps were, IMO, worthless.

    This is what is sick in our county now. People went to jail for a non-violent Watergate break-in and cover up with a President pushed to resign by his own party’s leadership over the cover up. The DoJ people in F&F knowingly allowed weapons to walk to criminals who were known to kill innocents and public officials in Mexico; two US agents also died. That should have been expected since in August 2004, some years before F&F, a US park ranger, 28-year-old Kris Eggle, was killed in Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument by drug and murder suspects. As one supervisor supposedly said when questioned about the F&F tactics by an BATF agent, you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs.

    In my state if I have a loaded firearm in my house and a child uses it to injure himself or others it is MY fault since I did not have proper control over the weapon. I have been angry over this since it was first reported and we still do not have the full story being investigated by Congress; the Tampa, Dallas and internal US gunwalking. If anyone with a bully pulpit wants to organize a protest, I’ll be there. A small one was held recently that was not widely publicized. (

    Bob, did you see this? Its now obvious that the DOJ had a list and intended to use it to pad trace numbers. Look carefully at the bottom of page 5, that paragraph says it all. LINK =>

    I think Roberts and the Obamacare ruling should have dispelled the notion that someone in the government is going to save us from the government.

    I’ve noticed that two of Barack Obama’s biggest “evolutions” came after protests outside his campaign headquarters.
