Evidence Fast and Furious About Pushing Gun Control?

Those of us who have followed operation Fast and Furious have long suspected the motive was all about gun control but Sharyl Attkisson at CBS News appears to have some evidence that backs that up.
ATF officials didn't intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called "Demand Letter 3". That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or "long guns." Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information. 
On July 14, 2010 after ATF headquarters in Washington D.C. received an update on Fast and Furious, ATF Field Ops Assistant Director Mark Chait emailed Bill Newell, ATF's Phoenix Special Agent in Charge of Fast and Furious: 
"Bill - can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same (licensed gun dealer) and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks." 
On Jan. 4, 2011, as ATF prepared a press conference to announce arrests in Fast and Furious, Newell saw it as "(A)nother time to address Multiple Sale on Long Guns issue." And a day after the press conference, Chait emailed Newell: "Bill--well done yesterday... (I)n light of our request for Demand letter 3, this case could be a strong supporting factor if we can determine how many multiple sales of long guns occurred during the course of this case."    
This revelation angers gun rights advocates. Larry Keane, a spokesman for National Shooting Sports Foundation, a gun industry trade group, calls the discussion of Fast and Furious to argue for Demand Letter 3 "disappointing and ironic." Keane says it's "deeply troubling" if sales made by gun dealers "voluntarily cooperating with ATF's flawed 'Operation Fast & Furious' were going to be used by some individuals within ATF to justify imposing a multiple sales reporting requirement for rifles."

Gingrich and Pelosi Co-sponsored 418 Bills

If you thought Newt's love seat spot with Nancy Pelosi was bad, this might just put them both in a living room, in front of a fire, and sharing a blanket (that is a metaphor for those who can't stomach the visual).

Via Daily Caller:
Many of the bills Gingrich and Pelosi co-sponsored were hardly divisive: authorizing an award for Mother Teresa, giving a congressional gold medal to former President Gerald Ford and recognizing the 50th anniversary of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. 
But one piece of legislation could be problematic for Gingrich with conservatives: the Global Warming Prevention Act of 1989, which never made it out of committee. 
The legislation declared that climate change was “a major threat to political stability, international security and economic prosperity.” 
The bill could also make the pro-life community uneasy with language about the availability of “family planning services” that included a declaration that, “curbing world population growth will be critical to achieving the goals.” 
And while it prohibited funds from going towards “involuntary sterilization or abortion,” it doesn’t appear the bill would have prevented “voluntary” cases of abortion.
It might be time for a new 'not Romney' candidate. Paging Rick Santorum...

Ruh Roh: Democratic Congressman may call for Holder Resignation

So far, there are 51 congressmen, 2 senators, and 2 sitting governors who are calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to resign over operation Fast and Furious. However, the next congressman to do so might just be a Democrat who has made it known that he will be watching the December 8th hearing very closely.

Via Daily Caller: 
Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that he thinks “it’s much too early” for him to call for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation over Operation Fast and Furious, but that he’s watching the congressional investigation closely and may do so soon. 
“I agree, for the loss of life, for our fine men and women as well as possibly hundreds of Mexican nationals, in this war against drugs and against the cartels,” Gutierrez said in an interview on Capitol Hill. “And, I think that mistakes should be looked at, evaluated and ultimately, those that are responsible — but I don’t think we’re there yet. I don’t have all of the answers. I don’t have all of the information. I would hope that those that have already rushed to judgment, which I don’t want to do, with the Attorney General — He’s going to come and testify, I’m going to listen to that testimony.” 
Gutierrez also made a conditional call for Holder’s resignation, indicating that if he’s convinced Holder knew of Operation Fast and Furious, and misled Congress, he thinks Holder should resign.
That last sentence is significant because there is a likelihood that after the House Judiciary is done with Holder tomorrow, there will be more congressmen to call for the latter's resignation. If Gutierrez is added to the list, the dike that is Holder's career could start breaking.

Gutierrez's willingness to consider jettisoning Holder appears to be, at least in part, rooted in the fact that there are so many dead Mexican nationals as a result of Fast and Furious. As this reality comes to light, we will begin to see the racial politics of the left doing battle with their ideology.

Here's video of Gutierrez:

Archbishop of Canterbury Says Jesus would join OWS

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams - yes, the same guy that said Great Britain needed to embrace sharia law a few years ago - is now saying that if Jesus were here today, he would support the OWS protesters. It makes sense that Williams would say that because Muslim groups support OWS as well.

Via Washington Post:
LONDON — Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams says Jesus would have joined protesters from the anti-corporate Occupy movement who have been camped outside London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral for more than seven weeks. 
In a British magazine, the leader of the world’s 78 million Anglicans worldwide insisted that Jesus would be “there, sharing the risks, not just taking sides.” 
The demonstrators pitched their tents outside the iconic cathedral in mid-October to protest what they see as the unfairness and illegalities of the global financial community. 
In his article written for the Christmas edition of the Radio Times magazine, the archbishop said Jesus was “constantly asking awkward questions” in the Bible.
Ya think Jesus would be hanging out with unrepentant miscreants who seem intent on breaking all ten commandments on a daily basis? In fact, if the typical OWS person represented anyone in the Bible, there are two people who might qualify, one from a parable and the other being the disciple who betrayed the Truth in the flesh.

In the Parable of the Talents, the servant who buried his talent would gladly join the OWS and based on Judas Iscariot's behavior in John 12:1-6, the latter would probably be an OWS organizer while pocketing all the money.

Rowan is lost.

Video: WH Press Secretary Jay Carney asked about Obama's position on Bestiality

No doubt, reporter Les Kinsolving was inspired to ask Jay Carney about bestiality based on the December 1st CNS News story that reported on the Senate voting to legalize it in the military. I discussed this on the December 4th show and blogged about that here. The issue has to do with a Senate vote to repeal article 125 from the Uniform Code of Military Justice by an overwhelming and shocking margin, 93-7. Here is what Article 125 says:
"(a) Any person subject to this chapter who engages in unnatural carnal copulation with another person of the same or opposite sex or with an animal is guilty of sodomy. Penetration, however slight, is sufficient to complete the offense. (b) Any person found guilty of sodomy shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.”
Speculation is that the intention to repeal this article was more about mainstreaming homosexuality in the military but this embarrassing inconvenience seems to bolster the argument that once you legalize gay marriage, etc. you can then move to animals. Nonetheless, Kinsolving asked Carney about this and the latter would not answer the question while feigning disbelief that it was asked and ultimately went to another reporter saying that he wanted to move to something 'more serious.'

This may all sound ridiculous but Kinsolving is simply shining a light on a very disturbing development; 93 Senators voted to make bestiality legal in the military. Assuming they didn't mean to (I'll give them the benefit of the doubt), this reality highlights a major flaw in our legislative branch that, are you ready for this, involves not reading legislation.
