Subverting the Constitution at Eric Holder's DoJ

I've not blogged on the "Fast and Furious" gunwalker scandal and the ensuing coverup but it certainly should be noted, because it is a particularly alarming piece of evidence of what the Obama administration is up to.  The F&F scandal itself involved the Department of Justice intentionally allowing weapons to be purchased illegally and then smuggled to Mexico for use by drug gangs, not to track them and catch "bigger fish" -- no efforts or provisions were made to track them -- but to generate "data" (another source here) showing that America's Second Amendment is the problem.  Unfortunately, the "data" generated included dead American Border Patrol officers.

Here's a quick summary from one of the best sources on the scandal, Mike Vanderboegh's Sipsey Street Irregulars blog:

The Gunwalker Scandal Made Simple
There are five key accusations against ATF and DOJ made by ATF whistleblowers and other sources within FedGov:

1. That they instructed U.S. gun dealers to proceed with questionable and illegal sales of firearms to suspected gunrunners.

2. That they allowed or even assisted in those guns crossing the U.S. border into Mexico to "boost the numbers" of American civilian market firearms seized in Mexico and thereby provide the justification for more firearm restrictions on American citizens and more power and money for ATF.

3. That they intentionally kept Mexican authorities in the dark about the operation, even over objections of their own agents.

4. That weapons that the ATF let "walk" to Mexico were involved in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, as well as at least hundreds of Mexican citizens.

5. That at least since the death of Brian Terry on 14 December, the Obama administration is engaged in a full-press cover-up of the facts behind what has come to be known as the "Gunwalker Scandal."

Great.  Well, now there's hard evidence that Eric Holder's staff is regularly conspiring coordinating with the left wing anti-conservative 501(c)(3) Media Matters to smear reporters and others who are looking at DoJ behavior in F&F and other matters.  I guess these days we just call this "spin," although I have a hard time distinguishing it from covering up criminal activity and working to subvert the First and Second Amendments.

Media Matters is more or less a propaganda organ of the Democratic Party and left-liberals in general.  There's nothing worth noting in that, per se.  But there is something deeply wrong and deeply alarming about the Department of Justice and a left wing political organization conspiring to cover up news stories, to cover up what appears to be criminal activity by the DoJ itself and to promote what is clearly a political agenda.  Department of Justice is supposed to be enforcing the law and protecting our rights -- not actively subverting them.

Barack Obama observes "what I said on election night was: 'Even though you didn't vote for me, I hear your voices, and I'm going to work as hard as I can to be your president.'"  Well, you didn't, you scoundrel.  You've worked to undercut my rights and the rights of my fellow citizens.  To hell with you!
BTW, I'm adding Sipsey Street Irregulars to the Unforeseen Contingencies blog list.  It's a great source of info on how the federal government is moving us toward a police state.  I also love Vanderboegh's consistent "Don't Tread on Me" attitude, and apparently his blogging scares the heck out of the DOJ.  On the downside, his multicultural sensitivity is lacking.
