His supervisor, Patrick Cunningham, has stated he will exercise his Fifth Amendment and refuse to answer any questions pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious – such an assertion is extremely rare and suggests possible criminal culpability...

    Better get that Fifth Amendment warmed up! Last week, the Criminal Division Chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Arizona, Patrick Cunningham, stunned the House Oversight committee by announcing he would take the Fifth and refuse to testify before them about Operation Fast and Furious. Now House Oversight chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has sent a letter(PDF) to Attorney General Eric Holder, demanding access to Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Morrissey, another key player in the Fast and Furious scandal and cover-up, who reported to Cunningham. Cunningham’s assertion of Fifth Amendment privilege “suggests that the Department has jeopardized public safety and the...

    The chairman of a House committee investigating the failed “Fast and Furious” operation demanded on Thursday that the Justice Department make a key federal prosecutor in Arizona available for questioning about “his role in and knowledge of” the controversial gunrunning probe. Rep. Darrell Issa, California Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, made the demand in a letter to Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., saying Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael Morrissey played an “integral part” in Fast and Furious and has information not available from other sources. Mr. Morrissey’s supervisor, Patrick J. Cunningham, chief of the...

    The former frontman of the Smiths, who is a staunch vegan and animal rights campaigner, drew the comparisons at a concert in Warsaw, Poland, on Sunday where he is currently in the middle of his summer tour. Before singing Meat is Murder, the 52-year-old British musician told the crowd: “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead [sic]. "Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried s--- every day.” Earlier this year the singer also said killing a stag is the same as killing a child.

    The ever-controversial musician Morrissey is once again being controversial, this time for saying that the recent terrorist attacks in Norway, which killed 76 people, aren’t as bad as what fast food companies do. At a recent concert in Warsaw, Poland, the former Smiths frontman reportedly said, “We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 [sic] dead.” He then added: “Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried [expletive] every day.” The vegan and animal rights activist then segued into a performance of “Meat is Murder.”

    ACORN’s mysterious sugar daddyby Ed Morrissey When life hands you lemons, find a sugar daddy to turn it into lemonade. That appears to be the axiom in play at ACORN today, which has sent out an e-mail blast hoping to turn videos of several offices offering assistance for child-prostitution and tax evasion into a bountiful fund-raising opportunity. Two sources have forwarded the fundraising e-mails to us today, one of whom is our old friend John Ziegler. John says he has no idea how they got his name and e-mail address, except that he donated money once to a Democrat Congressman,...

    Here’s the audio from Jim’s interview with Ed Morrissey from Hot Air this morning.(September 17, 2009) Ed’s got plenty to read over on Hot Air on a daily basis and his weekly column over at American Issues Project. His column today dives into static and dynamic analysis of tax policy – which really is an easy topic to understand – and how Sen. Max Baucus’ (D-Mont.) health care legislation proposal is a good example static tax policy analysis.
  • Feldstein: The coming tax regime that will kill American productivity by Ed Morrissy

    05/14/2009 6:46:55 AM PDT · by wingsof liberty · 11 replies · 1,127+ views
    Martin Feldstein doesn’t exactly sugar-coat this peek into a bleak future of high unemployment, loss of American competitiveness, and essentially all the worst parts of the 1970s and 1930s in American economics. The former Reagan advisor and now Harvard professor says that Barack Obama has learned all the wrong lessons from history. While Obama’s tax cuts are mainly illusory, the tax hikes are very real, and will kill any hope of a recovery this year, and perhaps ever: Mr. Obama’s biggest proposed tax increase is the cap-and-trade system of requiring businesses to buy carbon dioxide emission permits. The nonpartisan Congressional...

    Morrissey kicked off his set at the Coachella Festival with the classic Smiths tune 'This Charming Man' -- just one in a string of hit songs by his former band that he played. Performing in front of a backdrop with a black-and-white photograph of the naked torso of a sailor smoking a cigar with the word 'Refusal' written across his chest, the singer humbly asked, "Does it sound OK?" after performing 'Girlfriend In A Coma'. The audience cheered back loudly in response. Midway through the set, Morrissey said, "I can smell burning flesh and I hope to God it's human,"...

    The transcript from my one-on-one interview with Mitt Romney is now available at Heading Right, and I think that CQ readers and CQ Radio listeners will find it very revealing. As I noted when I first broadcast the interview, I wanted to press Romney on foreign policy, a topic that has not received much attention so far in this campaign other than the war on terror. Before we got to that, though, I asked the Governor about immigration. He had talked about his opposition to the current compromise under consideration in the Senate based on the Z-visa plan, and I...

    CROONER Morrissey was quizzed by the FBI and British intelligence after he called President Bush a "terrorist." The former frontman for gloom-pop heroes the Smiths says he was baffled to be hauled in for questioning. "The FBI and the Special Branch have investigated me and I've been interviewed and taped and so forth," -snip- "They were trying to determine if I was a threat to the government, and similarly in England. But it didn't take them very long to realize that I'm not. I don't belong to any political groups . . . My view is that neither England nor...

    Morrissey was questioned by the FBI and British intelligence after speaking out against Bush and Blair, the singer has revealed. Mozza, a famous critic of the war in Iraq, has previously branded the US President a “terrorist”. He said: “The FBI and the Special Branch have investigated me and I’ve been interviewed and taped and so forth. They were trying to determine if I was a threat to the government, and similarly in England. But it didn’t take them very long to realise that I’m not. “I don’t belong to any political groups,” he continued, “I don’t really say anything...

    MANCHESTER music legend Morrissey sparked controversy when he announced Ronald Reagan's death live on stage during a concert - and then declared he wished it was George Bush who had died instead. Thousands of fans at Dublin Castle, in Ireland, cheered when the ex-Smiths frontman made the announcement that the former American president, who had battled with Alzheimer's Disease, had passed away. And an even bigger cheer followed when Morrissey - who is no stranger to controversy - then said he wished it had been the current President, George W Bush, who had died.
