Major report released on Fast and Furious, DOJ official resigns
A major report released Wednesday on the Operation Fast and Furious scandal faulted a range of federal agencies for the failed anti-gunrunning program -- and has resulted in the resignation of one Justice Department official.
Jason Weinstein, the deputy assistant attorney general for the Criminal Division, is resigning in the wake of the Justice Department inspector general report on Fast and Furious. The report essentially concludes that he is the most senior department official who was in a position to stop Fast and Furious.
The nearly 500-page report was completed after investigators reviewed 100,000 documents and interviewed 130 people.
The reports also says that no one responsible for the case at ATF Phoenix or the U.S. Attorney's Office raised a serious question or concern about the government not taking earlier measures to stop Fast and Furious.

They don't even apologize to Holder, they all but wanted him crucified.
So, what you're saying is a deputy assistant attorney general to Eric Holder was running guns for the Mexican drug cartels on a large scale, and Eric Holder didn't have a clue about it?
That is just a little difficult to believe.
But, it's a start. How about this deputy assistant attorney general start spilling the beans about who knew what. If he wants to take a life prison sentence for being an accomplice to the killing of Brian Terry, then let's get him in front of a judge so he can plead guilty and we can put him in prison for the rest of his life.

Obama's Dangerous and Distrastous Presidency
How can any cogent American citizen possibly even consider voting for Barack Obama now? That's what lots of conservatives and moderates are asking each other, again and again. It's completely baffling, to those who grew up with any sort of sense of what America means and what the American character traditionally has been, that anybody can look at the man's record and want more of the same.
Almost the entirety of the Muslim world is now rioting against an American president who promised that his olive branches to Muslims would secure peace. Like Jimmy Carter, Obama has only shown a weakness that has emboldened the Islamist haters. Meanwhile, our closest ally in the region, Israel, a stable representative democracy led by an American-educated, America-loving prime minister, has repeatedly been insulted, abandoned, and undermined. In short, the United States is in worse position with all sides in the Middle East/northern Africa. We are embarrassed, feckless, wounded... and in four tragic cases, dead.
Allies in Poland and the Czech Republic have been repeatedly let down and sometimes insulted. The "re-set" with Russia earned us only Russian contempt. China and Russia ignore our entreaties around the world, with absolute disdain for our wishes, our olive branches, or Obama's supposedly Nobel-worthy and messianic genius for diplomacy.
Domestically, our debt has increased by 50 percent in just four years, by some $5 trillion, with not a single observable benefit from the spending. Our bond rating already has been downgraded by one agency, and another major agency threatens to downgrade us. Our unemployment rate has never been beneath 8 percent since Obama's first month in office, even though his economic team said his outrageously expensive "stimulus" package would ensure that it would never rise above 8 percent, and indeed that it would drop below 6 percent within four years.
Our politics is more fractured, less civil, than ever -- and as Bob Woodward, of all people, indicates in his new book, this is largely the fault of Obama. He has been the first president in history to push through a major new program without a single vote from the opposing party -- and while refusing to incorporate a single major idea from the other party, while ignoring overwhelming public sentiment to pass it, and while bending the rules in multiple ways to force it through Congress. Meanwhile, on the real business of Congress, his Senate allies have ignored longstanding law by refusing to pass a budget for three years now, while twice rejecting the president's own pitiful budget proposal by unanimous votes.

EXCLUSIVE: Long-awaited 'Furious' report places blame on ATF, Justice

By William La Jeunesse

Published September 11, 2012

'Fast & Furious' report lays blame on field agents,...

New report faults ATF, DOJ for Fast and Furious

New hearing set on Fast & Furious scandal

Dozens of senior-level U.S. government officials turned a blind eye to public safety as they pursued an ill-conceived and poorly managed investigation into gun trafficking in Mexico, according to a long-awaited inspector general's report on Operation Fast and Furious.

Portions of the Justice Department IG report, which has not been made public, were obtained exclusively by Fox News Channel.

The report and accompanying accounts cite a failure in leadership and a lack of accountability and oversight up and down the chain of command at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Justice Department itself and other offices. It says many senior executives knew the U.S. was helping traffic guns to Mexico that killed people but did nothing to stop it.

"We found no evidence in Operation Fast and Furious that the ATF or the (U.S. attorney's office) attempted at any point during the investigation to balance the risks to the public safety against the long-term benefits of identifying trafficking networks and participants," the draft report says.

Fast and Furious was the anti-gunrunning sting that helped send some 2,000 assault weapons to Mexico under the guise of stopping illegal trafficking. The operation ended only after the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry -- two of the weapons associated with the investigation were found at his murder scene.

Much of the blame in the report is directed at three ATF managers: Phoenix Agent in Charge Bill Newell, Supervisor Dave Voth and Case Agent Hope MacAllister.

Their attorneys claim they've been scapegoated. Debra Roth, an attorney for MacAllister, wrote to Inspector General Michael Horowitz that the report "fails to account for the abdication of oversight, guidance and responsibility by ATF headquarters and Main Department of Justice regarding the implementation of what is in essence a strategy to combat an international criminal enterprise."

The documents obtained by Fox News, while incomplete, provide an early glimpse into the finger-pointing that will follow the expected release later this week or early next week of the complete IG report. Attorney General Eric Holder has said the report, which will be scrutinized on Capitol Hill, will provide him the basis to discipline or fire those found most culpable.

While the report blames Newell and Voth for poor judgment, attorneys for the two say higher-ups and the entire ATF chain of command were aware of everything they did.

Both men recall a detailed briefing Voth delivered to senior ATF and DOJ staff in Washington on March 5, 2010. In a Power Point presentation, attended by at least two deputy attorneys general, Voth explained how the operation was run and how almost two-dozen largely unemployed men bought 1,026 assault weapons with $650,000 in just over four months, then smuggled the guns to Mexico.

<quoted text> I don't think so. Maybe a brief time. Without all that massive government expense no longer on the backs of people and businesses I believe you would see tremendous growth. All that money being sucked up by the federal government won't simply disappear. Not to mention with taxes a whole lot lower businesses would pour back into this country like a herd of buffalo. Making America the world's largest tax shelter would require so many more people that immigration would not be a problem. It would be encouraged. You libtards are so ate up with your wealth envy you can't see what is really best for this country.
You sent millions of government employees to the unemployment lines along with millions from the private sector. You drained hundreds of billions from the economy. You added increased costs with unemployment & government services such as food stamps & welfare.

Companies are still here. They did not leave.

Since you plan on cutting taxes, you will cut spending that much more making the entire process a deeper depression.

The vast majority money sucked up by government gets put back in the economy.

All you would do is make this worse & take longer to come out.

The only solution is first to get our economy back on track. Across the board tax cuts is not the answer.

Use careful spending cuts & revenue increases to reduce the deficit.

You forget we had a balanced budget 12 years ago.

If you actually gave a sh*t about this country & not the politics, it would be a cold day in Hell before you ever voted for anyone from the party that took us away from that balanced budget.

The idea that would vote for a Republican proves you are just full of sh*t.

Rising gas prices could be an issue for some Colorado voters
Gas prices are again rising steeply, an unusual post-summer spike that's crimping household budgets and could impact the economy and the presidential election.
Oil fell again today, gasoline likely to follow. All this after the short spike created by
the recent weather event that temporarily interfered with US gulf production and refining.

Barring Israel deciding to attack Iran between now and the election, unleaded regular could slip below $3.50 pg before election day.

Another GOP Candidate Comes Out Against Romney
Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) became the third GOP Senate candidate taking Mitt Romney to task for his "47 percent" remarks made on a hidden camera video. Heller told Politico he doesn't "view the world the same way" as Romney.

Said Heller: "You got to understand, I grew up with five brothers and sisters. My father was an automechanic. My mother was a school cook. I just don't view the world the same way he does."

Yesterday, Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) and Connecticut U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon (R) criticized Romney for his comments.

And in North Carolina, Mark Meadows, a Republican congressional candidate running in a center-right district, joined the club. "It might come as a surprise, but Mitt Romney didn't call me before he made those comments and ask for my advice," Meadows said. "I'm concerned about all 750,000 people. I am here to represent the people of this district."
Obama Opens Up Wide National Lead

This morning, Ovide Lamontagne, the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New Hampshire, appeared in a debate and also distanced himself from Romney's perspective. "The governor of New Hampshire needs to be a governor for all the people, and there's no 47 percent in New Hampshire as far as I'm concerned," Lamontagne said.

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) refused to say whether he still supports Mitt Romney for president, The Hill reports, just a day after he distanced himself from Romney's now famous "47 percent" remarks.

A new Pew Research survey finds President Obama now leads Mitt Romney nationally by eight points among likely voters, 51% to 43%.

"Not only does Obama enjoy a substantial lead in the horserace, he tops Romney on a number of key dimensions.

His support is stronger than his rival's, and is positive rather than negative. Mitt Romney's backers are more ardent than they were pre-convention, but are still not as enthusiastic as Obama's. Roughly half of Romney's supporters say they are voting against Obama rather than for the Republican nominee."
