Florida Judge who Permitted Case to Proceed Based on Sharia Law Appointed by Jeb Bush

This is the kind of thing that can derail a presidential bid. Florida Circuit Court Judge Richard A. Nielsen ruled that a legal dispute between two Islamic groups could proceed based on Sharia (Islamic) Law. Isn't it amazing how the supposed paranoid right in this country continues to warn about things that come true despite the attempts from the left to marginalize those who make such claims? Those who understand the goals of the Islamists have been warning about creeping Sharia for quite some time. It's why Oklahoma passed a state resolution that would ban it. The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) dismisses such things as racist paranoia.

Now, Nielsen - appointed by Governor Jeb Bush in 2003 - has set exactly that precedent. Jeb already had the boat anchor that is the Bush name to contend with. Now he has to deal with his appointing a judge who has welcomed Sharia Law into our legal system. It would seem that Judge Nielsen might want to brush up on his knowledge about Article VI of his country's Constitution, which says:
Clause 2: This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.
I'd say this is grounds for impeachment but I'm sure I'm just overreacting.

Rep. Darrell Issa Now Investigating Project Gunrunner

The burgeoning scandal that involves an alleged policy by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) allowing guns to 'walk' into Mexico has now caught the attention of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA). In classic bureaucratic doublespeak, ATF's Project Gunrunner was put in place to prevent weapons from illegally crossing into Mexico. Under that umbrella, the agency - ostensibly with the approval or at the direction of the Department of Justice - formed Operation Fast & Furious (FF).

According to a whistleblower from the ATF - Agent John Dodson - his agency leaders instructed agents to allow straw purchasers to buy very powerful weapons and cross into Mexico under the auspices of going after bigger drug cartel fish.

Now CBS's Sharyl Attkisson, the reporter responsible for breaking the story is reporting that Issa has assembled a team that will begin to investigate:
Republican Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is calling on the ATF to answer questions and produce documents about "gunwalking" operations where guns were allegedly allowed into Mexico in order to track drug cartels.

A CBS News investigation revealed that thousands of guns have found their way into criminal hands in Mexico as part of Operation Fast and Furious and Project Gunrunner.

In a letter sent to Kenneth Melson, acting director of the ATF, Issa urges him to "act decisively to assuage the public's deep suspicions" about the program.
HERE is a copy of that letter. Several days ago, Attorney General Eric Holder told Kay Bailey Hutchison that letting guns 'walk' is wrong and that such a tactic should not and is not the policy of the ATF. Unfortunately for Holder, the U.S. Attorney's office in Phoenix was fully aware of the problem. The question now becomes, who at the Phoenix office authorized the operation and will anyone be fired?

The most damage done to the ATF in this case has come from one of its own - Agent John Dodson - who has blown the whistle on the operation and even implicated the Department of Justice. Watch the interview HERE.

To this point, the ATF has been stonewalling Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA). Odds are better than not that it will do the same with Issa. It would be nice to see more agents like Dodson come forward. Stonewalling has become a way of life for this Justice Department, perhaps more than any DOJ in history. Again, as in other cases, suspicions will rise the longer Holder's DOJ obfuscates.

Video: Harry Reid wants to Save NPR because of 'Dog Racing' Story he Heard

The headline of this post is clearly that Harry Reid is arguing that National Public Radio (NPR) should not be de-funded because of an incredible story he heard about 'dog racing.' Oh, the HUMANITY! Translation: Harry Reid wants people to hear things that don't hold his feet to the fire. Perhaps equally egregious is the degree to which Sen. Lisa Murkowski (RINO) sucks up to Reid and echoes his sentiment about NPR. Listen all the way to the end because Reid says that when he's at his home in Searchlight, NV NPR is the only radio station he can hear during the day.

Maybe that's why he's such a mess.

And of course, Reid's argument for not de-funding the National Endowment for Humanities was to save the Cowboy Poetry Festival.
