Obama, Holder silent as Brian Terry memorial act unanimously passes House, Senate
By Matthew Boyle - The Daily Caller – 3 hrs ago

President Barack Obama maintains silence on the Brian A. Terry Memorial Act that passed the Democratic-controlled Senate unanimously on Tuesday evening. The Republican-controlled House passed it unanimously in December.

Drug cartel members used guns the Obama administration allowed to fall into their hands via Operation Fast and Furious to murder Terry, a Border Patrol agent, on Dec. 15, 2010.

Representatives for the White House didn’t answer The Daily Caller’s requests for comment about the act that passed both chambers of Congress with bipartisan support. Attorney General Eric Holder spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has also not responded to requests for comment on the act.

It’s also unclear whether Obama will do a public signing ceremony for the act, assuming he chooses to sign it. White House spokesman Eric Schultz didn’t answer when The Daily Caller asked him if Obama had invited the Terry family to Washington to do a public signing event.

Holder is NOT above the law and neither is his boss.

This administration holds the Constitution and us in complete contempt with every action and word.

Obama is probably too busy pandering to homosexuals to notice something like this.

0bama is in a bit of a quandry here. If he signs the act, he draws more attention to his illegitimate regime’s actions in this ‘Fast and Furious’ fraud, if he refuses to sign, he draws even GREATER attention.

(cue 0bama madly reading through Wikipedia on what a ‘pocket veto’ is and if there is anyway to just ignore it all)

Helpful info:

"The act, assuming Obama now signs it, would rename the U.S. Border Patrol station in Bisbee, Arizona to honor Terry’s memory."

A man is dead because Obama wanted to be able to say guns from America were going into Mexico, and use this as an excuse to take away Americans 2nd. Amendment rights.

So instead of impeaching Obama and firing Holder they generously name a building for the dead man.

Aint that some s**t? I am sure the man’s wife will sleep better knowing a building is named after her husband.

Congress needs to be swept clean along with the White House.

A friend of mine is in a little bit of a Federal bind, and I've been using words like, "How legitimate is any Fed regulation if the CEO is corrupt, criminal and a fascilitator down through the minions of continued criminality?"


I've used this illustration many times before;

There is a scene in Ben Hur, where an incoming Tribune is conversing with the outgoing one, and in discussing military tactics, the outgoing tribune complains that the Hebrews have this damned idea of a monotheistic God, and he states that, "How can you fight against an idea?"

Later in the movie a circumstance allows the incoming tribune to repond, "You once asked how do you fight an idea? .. I'll show you ... with another idea"


My entire purpose for being in FreeRepublic is the freewill offering of ideas.

Some background.
[snip] The Brian A. Terry Memorial Act, sponsored by Issa with nearly seventy bipartisan cosponsors, will rename the United States Border Patrol Station in Bisbee, AZ to honor the memory of Agent Brian Terry who was gunned down in the line of duty by heavily-armed drug smugglers on December 14, 2010. Terry died the following day. Weapons found at the scene were connected to the Department of Justice’s reckless Fast & Furious Operation.

The Brian A. Terry Memorial Act will be transmitted from the Senate to President Barack Obama for his signature, upon which time the measure will become law. (LOL!! See ya at the signing, Barak!)

Enough bitching guys. Here’s something we can do.

Someone make large sized “Remember Brian Terry” signs with the photo of him in his uniform, and RIP/date, “killed by Holder’s Fast and Furious Program”.

Then sell them at our protests to raise money for the family or any related foundation (or foundation for other slain lawmen such as the Memorial Foundation in DC).

IMAGE a Tea Party demonstration with over a hundred such large signs held high in the air. A thousand would be better and really deliver a message to the Incompetents In Chief, Obama and Holder.

Stop bitching; Start Printing.

Dear Representative Gardner:
Dear Senator Udall:
Dear Senator Bennet:

Let's call Fast and Furious, Castaway, "Grenade Walker" and "Cash Walker" what they are. State-sponsored terrorism.

On this side of the border they are violations of the RICO Act. In Mexico and Honduras it is state-sponsored terrorism.

What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within foreign countries wherein those countries are in a death struggle with those syndicates?

Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?

Not to mention the just-revealed news that the rip crew that killed BP Agent Brian Terry was there with DEA and FBI assistance and approval to attack and kill a rival cartel's smuggling crew.

Let's not leave out the FBI and DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.

It is organized, it is spread throughout every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned by Congress. (that I know of) It is the Federal government acting like mafioso.

Pres. Obama, AG Eric Holder and Sec. State Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is unquestionably state-sponsored terrorism by the definition used to define states like Iran and North Korea.

PS: if you think I am wrong or exaggerating any of this I will be glad to bring you up to speed with very well sourced articles, legal depositions (publically available) and other public information that verifies every word I have said.

Either you are with these criminals or you are with U.S. I implore you to get informed, get involved and act or get run over by this. This lawless scandal is not going away.

Sincerely,

Mr. (TigersEye)

Here is a petition to call for Eric Holder's prosecution.
Tea Party Petition to Prosecute Eric Holder

After signing the petition you will get an automatic way to send an e-mail to your Congressman and Senators. You can use their text or fill in your own.

I strongly encourage all FReepers to sign that petition and to send their own thoughts about this to their Congress critters. Let them know that you are aware of this issue and that you are not going to forget about it. Let them know you will be watching to see what they do about it.
