    In the movie Cliff Hanger, John Lithgows character, Qualen, utters a line that reminds me of how unscrupulous Democrat muckety-mucks like the Clintons and Obama operate. Qualen says, Kill a few people, they call you a murderer. Kill a million and youre a conqueror. Similarly, with the Clintons and Obama, commit a few crimes, they call you a petty criminal. Commit a million and youre untouchable. Well, maybe not a millionthen again. You get the point. Were now seeing a cascade of unearthed evidence of what seems to be an apparent three-plus-year coup attempt by the Obama administration and media...

    House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz issued subpoenas Thursday to two ATF agents after they failed to show at a hearing examining the 2011 murder of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent Jaime Zapata. I'm tired of hearing from just [Justice Department] management, I want to hear from the people that actually are on the front lines doing this, Chaffetz, R-Utah, said. Chaffetz complained ATF continues to insist the committee should not speak with Turk and Temple. The one other witness, DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, did not escape unscathed when he contended he was not prepared for the hearing....
