Not only was Operation Fast and Furious/Project Gunrunner an ill-conceived, unnecessary, and duplicative program that has cost two American lives and jeopardized countless more on both sides of the border, but some are asking if these guns have ended up in the hands of Hezbollah terrorists. Still, Barack Obama mocks those who want to secure our border. Will we ever know the depths of danger into which this president has plunged our country?

Not content with soaring unemployment numbers and destroying our banking, housing, health care, auto making, and oil drilling industries (to name just a few) Barack Obama has just handed Mexico virtual control of the American trucking industry.
One of Obama’s most useful idiots, putative Republican U.S. Secretary Transportation Ray LaHood, traveled to Mexico City to sign the “agreement” far from our gaze as he made certain America’s humiliation was complete.
By ratifying a so-called “pilot” program to allow Mexican junk wagons disguised as long haul trucks onto the highways we pay for, Obama has handed his pal Felipe Calderón another way to sneak undocumented fraudulent Democrat voters all over our nation.
Unless a lawsuit brought by the Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) is successful, within weeks Mexican trucks, many of which are American fleet castoffs, will be found in every corner of our country.
Mexican Commercial Drivers Licenses (CDL) the essential document for all truckers do exist, but they are just as easily purchased on Mexican streets as any other phony document. Drug testing of Mexican drivers will be done by….

We owe John Dodson a great deal of gratitude. Here’s why.
On March 30th, Barack Obama assured gun confiscation advocate Sarah Brady of his ongoing efforts to undermine the 2nd Amendment rights of the American people.
“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Obama told Brady during her visit at the White House. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
Of course, the meaning of “under the radar” to a skilled practitioner of “The Chicago Way” will translate into operations which are corrupt, underhanded, bereft of common decency and perhaps regard for human life. Most importantly, there will be an appearance of “noble intent” should the crimes be discovered.

Originally exposed in early March by ATF employee and whistle blower John Dodson, these ATF intrigues….

Instead of trying to stop the flow of weapons from the U.S. to Mexican drug cartels, the Obama administration’s “Operation Fast and Furious” deliberately allowed it to happen. Moreover, “This shift in strategy was known and authorized at the highest levels of the Justice Department,” says a report by congressional staffers.
“Through both the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Arizona and ‘Main Justice’ headquarters in Washington, D.C., the Department closely monitored and supervised the activities of the ATF,” the report says.
On Wednesday, Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, convened a hearing to determine who ultimately authorized the Operation Fast and Furious, who knew about it – “and why it took the murder of a 40-year old border patrol agent and a congressional inquiry before administration officials cancelled it.”
Operation Fast and Furious, conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, was launched in 2009 in an effort to track the flow of guns from U.S. straw purchasers to Mexican cartels.
ATF agents who complained about the recklessness of allowing cartel associates to buy guns in Arizona were reprimanded, the congressional report said.
