Here is The March 3, 2011 “in depth” story from The Center for Public Integrity website. There is a lot to read here. The number of guns smuggled at latest count was 1998... there will be more, you can bet.

ATF Let Hundreds of U.S. Weapons Fall into Hands of Suspected Mexican Gunrunners Whistleblower Says Agents Strongly Objected to Risky Strategy

By John Solomon and David Heath and Gordon Witkin | March 03, 2011

Hoping to score a major prosecution of Mexican drug lords, federal prosecutors and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives permitted hundreds of guns to be purchased and retained by suspected straw buyers with the expectation they might cross the border and even be used in crimes while the case was being built, according to documents and interviews.

Immediate Review of
Gun-Running Operation

related to the investigation. Redactions were
made by the Senate Judiciary Committee to
protect the identities of confidential informants,
undercover agents and cooperating gun stores.

The decision — part of a Phoenix-based operation code named “Fast and Furious” — was met by strong objections from some front-line agents who feared they were allowing weapons like AK-47s to “walk” into the hands of drug lords and gun runners, internal agency memos show. Indeed, scores of the weapons came back quickly traced to criminal activity.

One of those front-line agents who objected, John Dodson, 39, told the Center for Public Integrity that these guns “are going to be turning up in crimes on both sides of the border for decades.” Dodson said in an interview that “with the number of guns we let walk, we’ll never know how many people were killed, raped, robbed … there is nothing we can do to round up those guns. They are gone.”

Dodson has taken his misgivings to the Senate Judiciary Committee as a whistleblower after his concerns were dismissed by his supervisors and initially ignored by the Justice Department’s inspector general.

Sen. Charles Grassley, the panel’s top Republican — who is spearheading a probe of ATF’s actions – said “it’s time to step back” and examine the policy. Two of the guns involved in the sting operation turned up at the scene of a fatal shooting of a U.S. agent.

The Justice Department said today that Attorney General Eric Holder has asked the department’s acting inspector general to evaluate the concerns about ATF’s investigative tactics.

War on Drugs? No! A Border War on the 2nd Amendment.

Commentary by: JT Coyoté

In early September of 2010 I published an article on these pages titled "Obama gains foreign support against 2nd Amendment." The article was spawned as a result of an April 2009 meeting between Mexican President Felipe Calderon and newly inaugurated U.S. President Barack H. Obama. This summit centered on Mexican fears that illegal firearms may be entering Mexico across our common border. 

Revelations the last few weeks by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms whistle-blower John Dodson, show proof that not only did illegal firearms begin entering Mexico, but for the last 15 months with the assistance of the BATFE, at least 2000 rifles and pistols from 5.56mm to 50 caliber have found their way into the hands of Mexican drug and street gangs -- all with the sanctioning of the U.S. Justice Department. This is detailed in a February 23, 2011 article titled  "Gunrunning scandal uncovered at the ATF" and is blown wide open in the March 3, 2011 follow-up, "Agent: I was ordered to let U.S. guns into Mexico", both written by CBS Journalist, Sharyl Attkisson.  A search on these titles will get you the facts.

Knowing a little of the background on this little Justice Department black operation code named "Fast and Furious" -- in operation, now 15 months, apparently without the knowledge or consent of the Mexican government -- oooh, that's gonna leave a mark, eh Hillary? 

Let's do a little "dot connecting," let's see if we can flesh out this operation that over the last 15 months or so has been anything but fast and furious.  Initially we learn that the program was to target individuals and groups who purchase firearms, so-called straw buyers, and then smuggle these weapons across the Mexican border.

If that be the case, why weren't the guns and perps stopped, arrested, and weapons confiscated when they reached the border?  After all the BATFE was videotaping these straw purchases, and the half dozen or so gun shops that supplied the guns were in on the sting.  Well, perhaps stopping straw purchases wasn't the real reason after all. There has to be another reason why the BATFE and the Justice Department allowed these guns to make their way deep into Mexico. 

What other logical reason might the the Feds have for allowing "Fast and Furious" to become "Slow and Deadly" -- could it be since these weapons were used  to murder literally thousands of people in the bloodiest 15 months in modern Mexican history?... Nah.

Does this sanctioned smuggling make it easier for the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Border Patrol to interdict Mexican gang and drug cartel members as they cross the border?  No, it does not.  In December 2010 while attempting to stop cartel members crossing our border, a shoot-out erupted in which Border Agent Brian Terry was killed.  Two of the weapons found on the invaders were from the straw purchases. This is when BATFE agent John Dodson decided to blow the whistle.

At almost exactly the same time as Dodson's revelations were becoming public the news exploded with, 'Gunman Kills and Wounds dozens in Arizona Safeway Shootings.' With that, Dodson's BATFE expose was obfuscated.

The question is, were the shootings a cover-up? If so it succeeded.  We are finding now the likely purpose for allowing thousands of American firearms, smuggled in and used in the killing of thousands of Mexicans, is to get the Mexicans People on board with Obama, and other anti-Seconders, fighting to destroy the Second Amendment -- even if they have to create a REAL War across the Mexican border to do it.

Thank you for your courage, John Dodson, you sir, are an American Hero!

Homelessness, conundrum for the new decade.

By JT Coyoté
July 23, 2010

Part 1

This is the tale of two cities.  It's a look at the cities of Boulder and Colorado Springs regarding their municipal approach to a growing problem on the Colorado front range -- A problem that's affecting not only the state, but the entire country as well.

As we all know, Boulder prides itself on being the forward thinking, liberally enlightened and progressive center of academia here in Colorado.  While Colorado Springs is seen as more of a conservative military town steeped in fundamentalist Christian values and right wing political views.  Yet in spite of these dissimilarities, within the last 12 months both cities have passed very similar ordinances banning camping and sleeping on public property within their city limits.

Now in rosier economic times, this would not be an issue.  But here in mid 2010, the economy is heading toward what may well be a full-blown economic depression by the end of 2011, and many folks are facing foreclosure and property seizures.  New jobs are virtually nonexistent and many existing jobs are being phased out as a result of economic constraints in both the private and the public job markets. As a result, many Americans are now on the verge of homelessness.

There has been an alarming increase in the number of homeless people living on the streets, in parking lots, parks and along waterways in our cities and towns over the last 12 to 18 months. This fact will begin showing up in the new homeless statistics later this year. So, as a result of the increased numbers, and for sanitation, health, and appearance reasons Boulder and Colorado Springs have passed city ordinances prohibiting use of public property by the homeless. The only real difference in each of these laws is the focus and way they are being implemented.

In Boulder's case, they began by immediately issuing citations, over 1600 so far, requiring the homeless to make a court appearance.  One such case involved a man named David Madison who was ticketed, then found guilty and fined in Boulder Municipal Court under this new ordinance. He was guilty of nothing more than being huddled in his sleeping bag next to a building on a public sidewalk after being turned away from a crowded Boulder shelter earlier that cold November day. On June 28th the ACLU took up Mr. Madison's case by filing suit against the city of Boulder challenging their Ordnance. Boulder only had a total of 160 shelter beds available when Mr. Madison was turned away.

Colorado Springs however, during the height of the homeless crisis last winter, issued no citations.  They began by taking people directly to shelters, and setting up emergency facilities once the existing shelters were full.  Those who refused to be sheltered, were asked to leave the area and reestablished themselves elsewhere outside of the city limits.

Colorado  Springs is now working with local and state church operated charitable organizations and other non-governmental charities, hoping to avoid a repeat of last winter's homeless crisis. This year however there is likely to be a much larger number of homeless as the cold season approaches and the recession deepens.  In Colorado Springs, Boulder and elsewhere, this scaling up for an increase in indigent people will cost a bunch. My experience is that donations to your local church charitable organizations, and the Salvation Army are your best bet.

The bottom-line is that Colorado springs is handling their homeless problem in a manner that is commendable.  Boulder however, will have to reorganize and pay not only for additional shelter space, but also pay damages to Mr. Madison and others, not to mention ACLU court costs as well.

Big Brother Facebook

Alex Miller
August 23, 2010

The introduction of something called Facebook “Places” this week should have everyone just a little bit concerned about where, exactly, this technological world is taking us. As I understand it, users of iPhones can use Places to let people know where they are by “checking in” when they arrive at, say, Moe’s for a beer. Other Places users see you’re there and, voila! Your posse is in place.

How I would have loved this back in my analog high school days, when missing a key phone call on a Friday night could leave me high and dry — something today’s cell-phone wielding teens cannot remotely imagine. Now, Places takes that info-overload a step further, and one can certainly imagine its appeal for the most socially inclined among us.

Of course, there’s a vast potential for misuse of this technology. You could be set upon by...

Obama gains foreign support against 2nd Amendment

JT Coyoté
August 23, 2010   

Virtually out of the inaugural gate, President Obama picked up the anti Second Amendment gauntlet and held it high on his first trip to Mexico City in April of 2009.  In a meeting with Mexican President Felipe Calderón, he promised to urge the U.S. Senate to pass the international arms control agreement signed by Bill Clinton in 1997.

This agreement is titled the “Inter-American Convention Against the Illicit Manufacturing of and Trafficking in Firearms, Ammunition, Explosives, and Other Related Materials” better known as CIFTA. Though signed, it was thankfully never ratified by the Senate. This regional treaty, was adopted by the Organization of American States, yet the US and four other member states have not ratified it, at last accounting. Among the notable sticking points are disagreement over the lapsed U.S. assault weapons ban,  cross-border trucking between Mexico and the US, and the ever present illegal drug and illegal immigration problem.

So now, to make this all palatable to the American People, it is couched in...

9  General / General Discussion / The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay on: August 22, 2010, 12:14:16 am
Here is part of an exchange I had with a friend on the supposed oil shortage. You'll come across references to GW Bush, and the Arabia dwarfing reserves deep under the Rockies... check it out, they can't keep this stuff under wraps forever.


The basic truth here was the main thrust of my June 26th article on the Gulf gusher.  The facts and growing knowledge that the earth produces huge volumes of oil annually, deep within its crust where geological forces push it upward -- so-called abiotic origin, is replacing the money-making globalist cash cow fallacy of Peak Oil, which created the monopoly of big oil under the global bank's control over the last 70 years.

This should open your mind to the reasons for the 20 lane, 4 rail, 2 pipeline, Nafta superhighway from the west coast of Mexico to Minneapolis just east of this huge oil-field. The globalists have been preening China as THE superpower for the 21st century, with us as the new third world source of supply.

It is time for us to avail ourselves of the wisdom of the founding fathers of this country once again ... for we have allowed the very imperial bastards we defeated in 1781 to retake this country to level of even greater control than the founders of would have ever permitted.

OIL - US Geological Svc Reports:..$16/barrel? Enough Oil In The Land of The USA for 2,041 Years?? More Than All The World Put Together???
Date: Wednesday, August 18, 2010, 9:09 PM

Many of you may have already seen this report or are familiar with the Bakken field in the Williston Basin.  If you take this in the context of a) are the Saudis or other foreign interests funding our environmental extremists keeping us from developing our own resources;  b) did the UTube post I just forwarded you regarding the question of whether Obama is working with or for the Saudis / Middle Eastern / Muslim interests; and c) North Dakota (where the Bakken field exists) also is the only state in the US with State Banks,  - they have one of the healthiest economies in the country - DO YOU SEE ANY FACTORS HERE THAT MAKE THEIR ECONOMY SO GOOD AND OTHERS SO BAD?

The Article

The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe
Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign
oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion
barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel,
we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5..3 trillion.

"When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see
their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana
Legislature's financial analyst.

"This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found
in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a
formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the
'Bakken.' It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and
into Canada ... For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead
end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells
decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up
the Bakken's massive reserves.... and we now have access of up to 500
billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels
will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years
straight. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one
should - because it's from 2006!

U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World

Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006

Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the
largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION
barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In
three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this
motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?

They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders,
than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:

- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

- 18-times as much oil as Iraq

- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait

- 22-times as much oil as Iran

- 500-times as much oil as Yemen

- and it's all right here in the Western United States .

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the
environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America
become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of
people dictate our lives and our economy.....WHY?

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in
this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION
barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in
the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think
It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to. Think OPEC just
might be funding the environmentalists?

Got your attention yet? Now, while you're thinking about it, do this:

Pass this along. If you don't take a little time to do this, then you
should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices - by
doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain.


Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you
sent this to every one in your address book.

By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!

This is very concerning to me.  Stop all the handouts and drunk spending and they would be able to bring in their budgets!!

In the State of New Hampshire legislators do not get paid--more states ought to follow that model, IMHO!

Well, This is the beauty of State sovereignty. Each state must address state issues as per the will of the people of that state... Here in Colorado, for the 5 months the legislature is in session the legislators are paid, since this does take them away from their normal jobs during that time... and once the 10th Amendment review of federal usurpation begins to be scrutinized, they will be earning their stipend for sure.


"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction
 between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing
being done by government, the Socialists conclude that we object to its being done
at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the Socialists say we are opposed to
any education. We object to a state religion. The Socialists say that we want no
religion at all. We object to a state enforced equality. Then they say that we are
against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the Socialists were to accuse us of
not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain."
