On Nov. 3, 2014, the day before the mid-term elections, the Department of Justice did a document dump of some 64,000 pages, pertaining to Fast & Furious, to the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Obviously, the DOJ calculated the contents wouldn’t get pre-election coverage. Friday night document dumps have become common place for the “transparent” Obama administration
Early reports indicate that Attorney General Eric Holder, who is in contempt of Congress, was clearly in the communications loop on the ill-advised gun running scheme; something he denied under questioning.

Just 15 percent of Americans have a positive or very positive view (6 percent) of Holder, according to a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll. Thirty-two percent have a negative view of Holder while four times as may have a very negative view (22 percent). Continue reading
Voter ID. What makes this common sense requirement so controversial?
I’ve written a number of pieces on this subject over the past few years, but a copy of an article of unknown origin, Ever wonder why Republicans want voter ID?, sent to me by a reader spurred me to again address the subject.
The article cites voting irregularities in Pennsylvania, Florida and Ohio that any reasonable person should question. Is it possible that not one person in Wood County, Ohio’s 21 districts voted for Mitt Romney? And, how is that 106, 258 votes were cast in that county where there were only 98,213 eligible voters? There were other examples cited as well.
While the Republicans want to attack the fraud in voting, Democrats call it voter suppression. Continue reading
