Where we are with Gunwalker and why I'm not going to write about it this weekend. (Unless Field Marshal Holder eats his Luger for the Dear Leader.)
I love this photoshop of Field Marshal Eric Holder. The Gunwalker plot apologists hate it. Those are enough reasons to post it at every opportunity, even if the connection to the precise story is a bit tenuous).
I'm taking a break from the blog this weekend.
I've said it.
I will keep up with the comments, and release them when I can, but expect no posts for a bit.
I don't do it often, but I've got a bunch of other stuff to do this weekend, including family and fund raising. Besides, I just need a break. But before I turn off the office lights for a while, let me give you a heads up about some stories I've been working on and some behind-the-scenes stuff that is happening in the Gunwalker Scandal.
The next hearing, which will be a joint one between the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees, is not expected to happen until sometime in November, according to Oversight committee sources, but exactly when is a little unclear. There is a perception -- some say unfair, but there it is -- that Lamar Smith is a heck of a lot more cautious on this investigation than is Darrell Issa, who is himself more cautious than Senator Grassley. But of course it is Issa who has the power because unlike Grassley he has a committee chairmanship and unlike Lamar Smith he has the will to exercise it effectively.
Grassley's office seems to me more particularly interested in the very early March 2009 meeting between Gunwalker Bill Newell and White House personnel (plural, not just O'Reilly) than is Issa but then the latest letters by them both to the Pentagon's Joint Task Force North and Mueller of FBI this past week indicate that they both realize that this is "war to the knife and knife to the hilt" with the Gunwalker plotters of the Obama administration. Don't expect them to back down anytime soon.
There are a few lines that apply here in James Clavell's Shogun, where Blackthorn, the English pilot of a Dutch vessel shipwrecked on the shores of Japan, is being interrogated by Lord Toranaga. (I'm working from memory here, so bear with me if the quote is not exact.)
Toranaga, the traditional Japanese samurai daimyo, is concerned when he learns that the Dutch have rebelled against their "masters" the Spanish. Rebellion to one's liege lord is considered the worst of sins in traditional Japan of the early 1600s. Blackthorn, not really understanding how dangerous is the ground he stands on with this subject (for rebels against ANY lord have no standing and can be instantly killed by any other legitimate lord to protect the general interest of all lords), is asked by Toranaga if there ever is any excuse for rebellion. Blackthorn comes up with the correct answer that saves his skin. "Yes. If you win."
Toranaga is delighted with the answer, for he himself has been contemplating rebellion against the powers-that-be and installing himself as Shogun over all Japan.
Both sides recognize this truth. The only way Issa and Grassley win this game for their own political survival is by putting their entire reputations on the line and pushing it to a successful conclusion. They may not have started out recognizing this completely, but this is now entirely a matter of self-interest for them. They are all in. The Obama Imperialists, once wounded, will not forget nor will they forgive. They must be defeated utterly. That Issa and Grassley certainly now recognize this is a goodness thing.
A documentary by Fleming "Tex" Fuller on Gunwalker has begun filming interviews this week out in Arizona. Fuller is an experienced and serious documentary maker and we have been helping him get in touch with the folks he needs to make the movie. There will be a book to go along with the movie release and, perhaps, a Hollywood adaptation after that. The Coalition of Willing Lilliputians will be doing our best to assist in those projects. This too is a goodness thing.
There are other news stories in the works by the old-line media that cannot be commented upon here. I risk scooping no one who is advancing this story.
For myself, I am still wrestling with sources on the fourth "In at the beginning" Hillary-State Department-CIA installment. There is much disinformation being peddled these days to a whole lot of people and the Obamanoids and their media familiars are poised to leap upon any misstep. Always we must ask ourselves -- all of us who are covering this story -- the old Marine Corps counterintelligence officer's dictum in two parts:
1. Why is this guy telling me this?
2. And why is this guy telling me this NOW?
The story will come out, probably later next week when I'm certain of a few things. Or, I will write it with the uncertainties plainly labeled. But I will write it.
I have also been working on a piece about Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, et al and their cover-up history going back into the 90s with the OKC bombing and the Kenny Trentadue case. That, too, you will read in the coming week.
Peck Canyon, Pima County, Arizona -- Where the FBI, and, by extension, the Obama Administration and the entire Federal Leviathan, went to commit bureaucratic suicide.
There are other things, of course, that I cannot discuss now but are in the mix. We will get to the truth of what happened in Peck Canyon the night Brian Terry was killed. I'm convinced of that now. One thing I can guarantee you --
When the American people (at least that portion of them who will be watching this as it plays out in hearings, documentaries, books and news coverage over the next months and years) know what we who are working on this story now know about Gunwalker and the murder of Brian Terry that dark night in Peck Canyon they will not be in a forgiving mood. Not at all. This will cross all lines of political affiliation. For the truth is evil. It is dark. And it is unforgivable.
The betrayal of the same law enforcement people who these federal mandarins count on to enforce their will and guard their sorry asses will not sit well with anybody, but especially not with the LEOs. The FBI's name in particular will be in the worst discredit since that unconstitutional agency was begun after the Palmer Raids. The truth may not put a stake in its bureaucratic heart, but J. Edgar Hoover's bones will be twitching 'neath the sod and no one -- and I mean NO ONE -- will ever trust those corrupt federal bully boys again.
The crisis of legitimacy that the Gunwalker scandal represents and the danger that it poses to the entire stated excuse for existence of the Federal Leviathan cannot be over-emphasized. And the players in this sorry, bloody plot will rue the day that Gunwalker Bill Newell had his bright idea and sold it to them.
Not only will Obama be a one-term president (impeachment is just not done anymore on the GOP boneless chicken ranch), but he will be hounded by bad press and civil suits -- national and international -- to the end of his days. People will spit on the sidewalk as he passes.
For now, I still have a $50 bet (which I cannot afford) that Eric Holder will be out of office and talking, on his dime, to quarter-million-dollar-retainer defense attorneys by Christmas.
I don't expect to lose that bet.
So, barring some catastrophe requiring comment -- something huge like dogs and cats living together and mass hysteria, or Field Marshal Holder eating his Luger for the Dear Leader -- I'll try to recap the weekend on Sunday night. Until then, folks, have a great weekend yourselves.
