This months Rattle brings us a host of stories that the mainstream media didnt cover sufficiently-preferring instead to shower accolades upon the man responsible for abandoning immigration enforcement in the name of political opportunism. Well cover everything from the latest spate of violent crimes committed by illegal aliens to Barack Obamas continued roll out of administrative amnesty, which now includes directives to ignore both interior enforcement and border security.
But first, well examine this administrations ongoing obstruction of Congresss investigation into the ever-broadening gun-walking scandals. Courtesy of Sipsey Street Irregulars-whose coverage of Fast and Furious is non pareil-we learn that the White House is blocking testimony from Kevin OReilly, a former staff member of the National Security Council who wants to speak with the Senate Judiciary Committee and House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. This administrations invocation of executive privilege is just the latest example of obstruction of justice relating to Fast and Furious.
It should be recalled that last July the acting head of the ATF told Congress that his agency was paying FBI agents to ignore the law in pursuit of this administrations bizarre and opaque political goals. Immigration control, not gun control, is a solution that Barack Obamas Justice Department dismisses out of hand. We can only hope that, as Katie Pavlich reports in Town Hall, Chairman Darrell Issa pursues this investigation to its conclusion, which hopefully will result in a more than a few stiff prison sentences. Speaking of Katie Pavlich, she has a fantastic new book about Fast and Furious entitled-appropriately-Obamas Bloodiest Scandal, which I urge you all to read.
