Wiretap applications by Eric Holder’s Justice Department are now providing evidence that top officials, including Holder, knew about the Fast-and-Furious program and its smuggling of guns illegally into Mexico long before the murder of border agent Brian Terry by one of those guns.

It’s not the crime but the coverup: Newly revealed wiretap applications by Eric Holder’s Justice Department show that top officials, including Holder, almost certainly knew about the Fast-and-Furious program and its smuggling of guns illegally into Mexico long before the murder of border agent Brian Terry by one of those guns.

This evidence provides an explanation why Obama, Holder and other Justice officials have been stonewalling Congressional investigations. The documents they are withholding likely prove that they have been lying, from the beginning, about what they knew about Fast-and-Furious. Worse, their willingness to let guns pass over the border into Mexico illegally would make them accessories in the murders of Terry and numerous Mexicans.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

    this is corrupt dating back to george w. ….his bunch initialized it. now the recent bunch has fumbled it and an Agent was found dead along with some ” spent” weapons of the Program. my condolences go to ALL families that lost loved ones on Either side of the border. there is More to all of this Operation than most can grasp.

  • Al

    Get your facts straight. This is not the fault of George Bush. Under the Bush administration a program was initiated in collaboration with the Mexican government where a small number of guns with GPS tracking devices were released. The location of all guns was constantly monitored. The program was quickly canceled. The Obama administration on the other hand, released thousands of guns with no tracking devices and no hope of ever keeping tabs on them. It proves that they are either incredibly incompetent or more likely, were attempting a back door assault on the second amendment.

    You’re right, of course, Al – this is right out of the Obama playbook – try to make something they did look like Bush did it first. The operation under the Bush Admin was SPECIFICALLY designed to track & intercept the weapons & apprehend the gangs – and that was done. It was cancelled though, in large part because they realized it was too risky & probably not the best way to go about it. In the case of Fast & Furious, agents who reported they knew where the guns went were then ordered NOT to interdict them ! ! Big difference ! ! If the whole point was to catch the bad guys, then why stop agents from doing anything once they knew? That was a lie to cover up the true intent of the program. At least one, possibly two Americans died as a result of F&F, not to mention hundreds of innocent Mexicans. As you pointed out, the previous operation was coordinated with the MX gov’t – in F&F, they were NOT told. I wouldn’t blame the MX Gov’t & their people for being FURIOUS with us over this…
