“Near midnight, the assassins, later identified as hired guns for the Mexican cartel La Linea, broke into a one-story house and opened fire on a gathering of nearly 60 teenagers. Outside, lookouts gunned down a screaming neighbor and several students who had managed to escape. Fourteen young men and women were killed, and 12 more were wounded before the hit men finally fled.”
Citing a Mexican Army document it obtained and published, Univision reported that “[t]hree of the high caliber weapons fired that night in Villas de Salvarcar were linked to a gun tracing operation run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF).”

This blood on Eric Holder’s hands.
Fast and Furious started as a way for the Obama administration to “prove” Hillary Clinton’s lie that three-quarters of guns found in Mexico were from U.S. Southern states. The intention was to use this “proof” to force Congress to pass tougher gun laws.
But instead it blew-up in their face. Now they’re all scrambling to pretend it never happened.
Pen register and trap and trace devices now generally refer to the surveillance of information about—rather than the contents of—communications. Pen registers capture outgoing data, while trap and trace devices capture incoming data. This still includes the phone numbers of incoming and outgoing telephone calls and the time, date, and length of those calls. But the government now also uses this authority to intercept the “to” and “from” addresses of email messages, records about instant message conversations, non-content data associated with social networking identities, and at least some information about the websites that you visit (it isn’t entirely clear where the government draws the line between the content of a communication and information about a communication when it comes to the addresses of websites).
For the record, I agree with the ACLU exactly one time. This is it.
Our government has taken to spying on its own citizens, that’s us, on an unprecedented level. As more and more communications go electronic it’s easier and easier to intercept. That it is done without a warrant is truly frightening. If these communications are so important then the FBI should present evidence to a judge and get a warrant.
Mind you, this is the same FBI that cannot find hundreds of guns from Fast and Furious. This is the same presidential administration that refuses to turn over records regarding those guns or the Fast and Furious catastrophe. The same administration that promised to the “the most open and transparent in history” and has proven to be just as closed and private as Dick Cheney and the Bush years.
When it comes to spying on you but keeping gov. secrets Obama = Bush.
Herman Cain has a new website complete with video. My first as so far favorite video is entitled Give a Lamb a Gun.
It’s a priceless quote from Benjamin Franklin.
