    U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- In Garland, Texas, on 3 May 2015, Gregory Stevens, a veteran police officer with the Garland Police Department, was working off duty as armed security for the “Draw the Prophet” cartoon contest event. Pamela Geller organized the Draw the Prophet event as a response to Islamic demands that Western Civilization submits to Islamic censorship. The particular demand was no one would be allowed to draw images of the Prophet Mohammed or to mock him or make fun of him. The infamous attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris had occurred just five months earlier, by two Islamists...

    On Sunday, former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder called for former President Donald Trump to “be held accountable” for the January 6, 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol. CBS “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan asked Holder if he thought current Attorney General Merrick Garland was being aggressive enough in prosecuting riot participants and Trump.

    United States Border Patrol agents say they arrested a US citizen Monday who tried to cross into the US illegally by driving his truck through the Rio Grande. Agents say they saw the man walking along the south side of the border barrier near Fonseca Drive and Cesar E. Chavez highway. Agents say he was taken into custody for illegal entry. When agents checked his records, they discovered he had an extensive criminal history and an active warrant out of Wichita, Kansas, for murder.

    Cheyenne Avenue and Commerce Street in North Las Vegas reopened early Sunday, nearly 12 hours after a motorist blew through a red light and caused “a mass casualty traffic collision” that killed nine people, police said. The driver was going “north of” 80 miles per hour at the time of the crash, Clark County Office of Traffic Safety director Andrew Bennett told the Review-Journal.
  • Mexico charges 7 including top officials in ‘Fast and Furious’ guns trafficking scandal

    The Washington Times ^ | January 9, 2022
    The December 2010 murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry exposed the bungled “Fast and Furious” investigation, in which agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives allowed criminals to buy guns with the intention of tracking the weapons. But the agency lost most of the guns, including two that were found at the scene of Terry’s death in southern Arizona. The U.S. government has heavily pursued prosecution of the men involved in the killing. Mexico says Mexican drug gangs and former officials also participated in or failed to stop the weapons trafficking. Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office...

    A shooting on a beach in Mexico might have tourists rethinking their vacation plans. Multiple attackers rolled up to Playa Langosta in Cancun's hotel zone on jet skis and began opening fire on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press. Nobody was injured, but tourists were rattled by the incident. Zayne Jones of Utah said his wife and kids were at the hotel's pool on the beach at the time. “I ran to the balcony to tell them to get down and get to a corridor and get cover," Jones told KUTV-TV in Salt Lake City. "Luckily nobody got hurt, but...

    On Saturday morning's The Cross Connection, MSNBC again showed itself to be the place for fake news pushing liberal causes as host Tiffany Cross repeated a disputed statistic claiming that 70 to 90 percent of guns used in Mexico are from the United States, thus giving Mexico a rationale to sue gun manufacturers in the U.S. Setting up a segment on the topic, Cross recalled: An estimated 200,000 firearms are illegally trafficked from the U.S. to Mexico every year and between 70 percent and 90 percent of the firearms found at crime scenes in Mexico are traced right back here....

    Fox News ^ | 6.15.2021 | AP - Fox News
    In the first public accounting of its kind in decades, an Associated Press investigation has found that at least 1,900 U.S. military firearms were lost or stolen during the 2010s, with some resurfacing in violent crimes. And that's certainly an undercount. Government records covering the Army, Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force show pistols, machine guns, shotguns and automatic assault rifles have vanished from armories, supply warehouses, Navy warships and elsewhere. These weapons of war disappeared because of security failures that, until now, have not been publicly reported, including sleeping troops and a surveillance system that didn’t record.

    Things are not like they used to be. It was well known that Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, and Donald Trump had a tremendous working relationship. Obrador helped President Trump hold illegal aliens in his country before their trial in the US and Trump rewarded Obrador and Mexico with a strong border policy.Those days are over.Today, under the Biden-Kamala administration, the US Border is wide open and the Mexican President is not pleased with the way the Biden administration is assisting cartel leaders in Mexico with their insane policies.On Friday Lopez Obrador accused the Biden administration of orchestrating a...

    The security guard wounded in a 2015 ISIS-inspired terrorist attack at the "Draw Muhammad" event in Garland, Texas, is suing the FBI, and argues the bureau is liable for his damages because an agent "solicited, encouraged, directed and aided members of ISIS in planning and carrying out the May 3 attack," according to court documents filed Monday.

    Ammo.com ^ | 12/16/2020 | Sam Jacobs
    The ATF isn’t all bad. In fact, they had a policy of letting illegal gun purchases go between 2006 and 2011. It ended up getting U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry killed on December 14, 2010, and let Mexican criminals get enough guns that they were found at over 150 crime scenes where Mexican citizens were either killed or maimed. And some of the guns were used in the November 2015 terrorist attack in Paris at the Bataclan. But other than that, it turned out just fine. (In case you’re not picking up on it, we’re laying on the sarcasm...

    On this episode of the Resistance Library Podcast Sam invites gun rights advocate and journalist, David Codrea, to the show. David Codrea is that rarest of creatures in the 21st century -- a skilled and principled investigative journalist, willing to overturn stones to find the truth underneath. It was his strong journalistic chops that made him instrumental in breaking the story that the world knows as “Operation Fast and Furious,” a part of Project Gunrunner, an ATF policy of allowing illegal gun purchases to happen in a vain attempt to catch bigger fish that resulted in the death of a...

    TUCSON — “My record is 30 minutes,” Magistrate Judge Bernardo P. Velasco of Federal District Court here said one afternoon, describing the speed with which he had sealed the fates of a batch of 70 migrants caught sneaking into the country. Each of the accused had 25 seconds, give or take, to hear the charges against him, enter a plea and receive a sentence. This is a part of the battle against illegal immigration that many Americans have never heard of. Known as Operation Streamline, it is the core of a federal program that operates in three border states, using...

    A must listen to inteview. On this special episode of the Resistance Library Podcast, Sam Jacobs speaks with the author and former ATF agent, Vincent Cefalu. Vincent Cefalu is best known as the primary whistleblower who exposed Operation Fast and Furious and Project Gunrunner to the American public -- but that’s not how he wants to be remembered. Cefalu is a curious figure, one who strongly believes in the mission of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and for reasons that are not easily dismissed by the same canned arguments we’ve all spouted at one time or another. A...

    In the movie “Cliff Hanger,” John Lithgow’s 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 you’re a conqueror.” Similarly, with the Clintons and Obama, commit a few crimes, they call you a petty criminal. Commit a million and you’re untouchable. Well, maybe not a million—then again. You get the point. We’re 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...

    Eric Holder's resignation, just 40 days before the midterm elections, shows how jittery Obama is about losing control of the Senate this November. While Holder likely is getting out of Dodge before federal judges weigh in and order the release of documents showing he covered up the Fast and Furious and IRS email scandals, the timing of his resignation suggests that Obama wants to be sure that he has time for a Democratic lame duck Senate to confirm a replacement. With so much dirty laundry stacked up in the closets of the Justice Department, Obama didn't dare let in an...
  • Obama's Bloodiest Scandal Reemerges as Mexico Demands an Apology for Operation Fast and Furious

    The Mexican government is still waiting for an apology for Operation Fast and Furious, an (illegal and secret gun running scheme) implemented during the Obama administration. "Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said his government would send a diplomatic note to Washington for information on the 2009-2011 operation known as ‘Fast and Furious,’ a topic that has resurfaced in recent days amid a debate over historic U.S.-Mexico cooperation on security and possible corruption under previous administrations," (Reuters) reports.

    “I am reliably informed that the NSA or its partners intercepted at least some of the communications between Mr. Rich and Wikileaks,” wrote attorney Ty Clevenger in a startling letter last week to Richard Grennell, Interim Director of National Intelligence. Clevenger represents Ed Butowsky, a high-profile author and financial adviser who dared to ask questions about the late Seth Rich and was sued for his troubles. The known facts of Rich’s still unsolved murder were largely established within hours by the local media. “A 27-year-old man who worked for the Democratic National Committee was shot and killed as he walked...
