Eric Holder perjury, Fast and Furious aka Project Gunrunner, Holder speech April 2 2009, USDOJ website

From TheBlaze July 8, 2011.

“Did the Attorney General Mislead Congress on Operation ‘Fast and Furious’?”

“Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee says he does not believe Attorney General Eric Holder gave accurate testimony under oath to Congress during the House Judiciary Committee on May 3.
Asked in May when he learned of Operation “Fast and Furious” and “Project Gunrunner,” Holder claimed he ‘probably’ learned of it ‘over the last few weeks.’ In the testy exchange that followed, Issa pointed out that two Americans were killed by weapons associated with the botched operation, and that in the end, no major criminals were brought to justice. Issa also implies that the Department of Justice was deliberately slow-rolling the request for documentation about the program. You can watch the exchange between Holder and Issa here.

As for the Attorney General’s timeline of the last few weeks, Operation ‘Fast and Furious’ was reported in major news outlets across the country starting not weeks, but months before the May 3 hearing, including a 4-page article in the Washington Post in February naming the program and explaining how it was supposed to work.”

Eric Holder made the following speech on April 2, 2009.

“Attorney General Eric Holder at the Mexico/United States Arms Trafficking Conference
CUERNAVACA, MEXICO ~ Thursday, April 2, 2009
Remarks as prepared for delivery.
First, let me express my thanks to Attorney General Medina Mora and Secretary of Government Gomez Mont for making this conference possible.

 This is my first trip to another country as Attorney General.   I wanted to come to Mexico to deliver a single message: We stand shoulder-to-shoulder with you in this fight against the narcotics cartels.  The United States shares responsibility for this problem and we will take responsibility by joining our Mexican counterparts in every step of this fight.

 And, together, we will win – thanks in large part to the courage of my Mexican colleagues here today, who are on the front lines every day, and with whom I am proud to collaborate.

 The topic that has been addressed over the past two days could not be more important – the development of an arms trafficking prosecution and enforcement strategy on both sides of the border. 

 I would like to thank the Mexican and U.S. experts who have worked so hard on this issue.  On our side, Secretary Napolitano and I are committed to putting the resources in place to increase our attack on arms trafficking into Mexico.

 Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels.  My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion.  DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail.

 But as today’s conference has emphasized, the problem of arms trafficking will not be stopped at the border alone.  Rather, as our experts emphasized, this is a problem that must be met as part of a comprehensive attack against the cartels – an attack in depth, on both sides of the border, that focuses on the leadership and assets of the cartel.  This is the type of full-bore, prosecution-driven approach that the U.S. Department of Justice took to dismantle La Cosa Nostra – once the most powerful organized crime group operating in the United States. 
 With partners like those we have here today, I am confident that together, we will defeat these narcotics cartels in exactly the same way.  I am proud to stand with you, and to join you in this fight.  Thank you again for inviting me here.”

    Dear Mr. Sorensen:
    Thank you for contacting my office regarding Barack Obama. My staff has researched the issue of his citizenship. Our research has led us to conclude that the state of Hawaii has issued a valid birth certificate showing that Barack Obama was born in the United States.
    Of course, I remain committed to fighting for limited, constitutional government, and I am actively opposing President Obama’s big government agenda. Thank you again for contacting my office. Please feel free to do so in the future with any other questions, comments, or suggestions.

    “Our research has led us to conclude that the state of Hawaii has issued a valid birth certificate showing that Barack Obama was born in the United States.”
    “Our research …”

    What research? Details?

  5. Thanks for covering this CW. This scandal goes all the way to the WH, this is what hope and change looks like. Guns for Gangs!
    Expect obots to blame Bush or continue to beat the racist drum to cover for Bounel’s crimes.

  6. Your Tax Dollars were Used to Purchase Guns and Run Them into Mexico
    Friday, 08 July 2011 15:48
    Well, the other shoe has dropped. We’ve known for several months that the Obama Administration was turning a blind eye to — and even encouraged — suspected gun smugglers who were purchasing firearms from gun stores in the southwest.

    But now we know the rest of the story: Your tax money was used to buy many of those guns that were later sent to Mexico.

    That’s what Fox News has been reporting this week, as it remains the one large news agency that has continued to cover the growing Fast and Furious scandal that was being run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosive (ATF).

    Fast and Furious was a program that was born in 2009, allegedly to help track gun smugglers back to the Mexican drug cartels. But the reality is that few, if any, of these top-level leaders have been busted, while the smuggled guns have been funneled into the hands of drug gangs all along the border, resulting in hundreds of deaths (and the murders of two U.S. law-enforcement agents).

    And, not only were your hard-earned dollars being used to purchase these guns, the main person being investigated for gun smuggling “was actually an FBI informant and former drug dealer who had been deported years ago,” Fox News reported.

    According to sources inside the Justice Department, the ATF spent millions of dollars tracking a chief gun smuggler — known as “Mr. Big” — before discovering that he was in fact on the feds’ payroll (funded, again, by your tax dollars).

    But why? That’s the recurring question. Why would the Obama Administration — that is filled with anti-gun cronies — knowingly approve the sales of firearms to bad guys? Why would they knowingly put thousands of guns “into the wrong hands,” when they’ve spent years advocating gun control laws to supposedly get guns “out of the wrong hands.”

    Given that the ATF refused to work with Mexican authorities (when it came to tracking these guns) and frequently lost track of the firearms after they moved south of the border, it does not seem that bringing down drug kingpins was the real goal of Fast and Furious.

    The better explanation is that the Obama Administration was using the influx of guns into Mexico — and the resulting violence — to clamor for increased gun controls here at home.

    As stated by an article this April, “The Obama Administration, according to ATF agents who blew the whistle on the illegal plot, intended to use statistics concerning U.S. guns in Mexico to call for more stringent gun control.”

    That is outrageous, and it means that the top cop at the Justice Department, Attorney General Eric Holder, needs to go. Fast and Furious occurred under his watch. And we know that information about departmental corruption went right up to his office suite. Holder was either deeply involved or grossly negligent about this horrendous scandal that has left hundreds of people dead. Holder must resign.

    ACTION: Please contact your Senators and urge them to call for Eric Holder’s resignation. And don’t forget to circulate this alert to your family and friends.

  7. Hi Gordo………………………
    Does the Ron Paul letter tell you anything about him? To me it screams volumes.

  8. Pat 1789………………………
    Eric Holder is like a tick on a dogs rump. Unless you go about the process of extraction correctly the tick will continue to SUCK THE BLOOD of the animal. You MUST extract the head of the tick with it’s body. Otherwise the head remains dug in and from it comes a new body. Holder must ingest a systemic poison which will cause him to depart from his host voluntarily. We must continue to look for a way to do this effectively. I personally think that HUGE EMBARRASSMENTS is the way to go.

    BHO will keep him on, he’ll make a good lighting rod for 2012.

    I was a police officer for 29 years. If I were a police officer in Washington these days, I would march into the offices of Napolitano, and holder, and lock them up for making a false report. I would then also charge them with the deaths of the two agents that were killed with the guns they allowed to be passed into Mexico. How about charging them with some illegal gun sales to a foreign nation? These people are the puppets of Obama, and need to be put in jail where they can bitch and lie and complain all they want. It would be a great place for the narcissist in charge to be also.

  11. Unfortunately RON PAUL is like all the other Senators and Congressmen in that cesspool called Washington. You are right Old Salt, his reply tells where he stands on the most important issue in America today.

    Although everyone knows BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT that Barack HUSSAIN Obama does not have a valid birth certificate or social security number, they turn a blind eye, and a deaf ear to every American who is screaming and pleading for an investigation of the USURPER in the White House.

    There is no justice in America, if there was, Obama would be the first to be standing in the dock accounting for himself and his actions.

    There is only one thing wrong with America….we have a dangerous man-child leading this great nation….leading us right over the cliff !

  12. Norman Cutsail

    I think the big problem is that we the people have no recourse as to who we can go to to put a stop to the insanity that Obama is perpetrating on our country. I have literally written every senator and congressman there is about why they refuse to force Obama to “put up or shut up” about his true identity, and out of the 500 or so that I wrote to, absolutely NONE of them wrote back. I did learn however, that the biggest reason that the congress and senate remain mum on the subject, is because they fear a “Black backlash” if they pursue Obama and force him to reveal the documents in question. That’s right, folks, they fear how the black population will react, when they find out that Obama is a phony. The remedy for that I think, is to expose him, and let the cards fall where they may. We had the black people riot all over the country in 1968 When MLK was killed, and that was put down in a week. I think these days, (hopefully) that the black population is more educated and will realize that Obama has also been playing them for fools also. I don’t know what else to do to stop the usurper, outside of “we the people” taking over Washington any way we can, and put people in office that aren’t part of the cover up of Obama’s apparent lies, and refusal to identify himself. Our senate and congress refuse to do it. I don’t see another viable choice. Wait until November 2012? How much more damage will we let Obama and his band of Chicago thugs do to this country if we let him continue?

  13. Hotlanta Mike

    Birther Summit in 2012…

    1) set a deadline for existing Conressional members to sign onto a petition to call for a Congressional investigation of Obama and his document/ssn fraud.

    2) if existing members do not sign then it’s time to purge the republican field. No monies to the GOP, no volunteer efforts to support established GOP candidates.

    3) support a candidate that puts national security and defending the US Constitution at the top of their platform.

    If we can garner mass support in these efforts then the GOP will be sh*tt*ng their pants in 2012.

  14. PROOF, Bummer ordered GUN RUNNER! Check THIS OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  15. Obama Orders Launched Fast and Furious

  16. bob strauss

    Let’s face the facts. Obama, or what ever his name is, the usurper, does not give a sh!t about this country. He is an enemy to this country. His government is unconstitutional because Obama doesn’t qualify for the office of President. Everything this government does needs to be voided. If Obama would forge birth documents, in order to defraud Americans, and fool them into voting for an ineligible candidate in a presidential election, Obama will break any law.

    Obama did not become a felon, and usurp the presidency because he wants to be the best president America ever had. Obama’s plans for this country are more nefarious, and un American, and where did five Trillion dollars go?

    Everything this government does is unlawful, and unconstitutional.

    Obama’s Watergate … or Waterloo?

    Holder and the Administration, denied again today, they knew about Operation Fast & Furious…

    However, Obama initiated Project Gun Runner (Fast and Furious) in March 2009 — as seen on C-SPAN:

    Obama Orders Launched Fast and Furious – 1:22

    Project Gun Runner (Fast and Furious) was launched under the orders of President Barack Obama with the knowledge of Attorney General Eric Holder.. Deputy Attorney General David Ogden announced the Obama Administration’s new and aggressive ‘comprehensive plan’ on March, 24, 2009.. The plan was aimed at disrupting gun trafficking between the United States and Mexico.

    Full C-SPAN Video Link – 3-24-2009 – 31 minutes

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Deputy Secretary of State Jim Steinberg and Deputy Attorney General David Ogden held a news conference to announce the U.S.-Mexico Border Security Policy. They spoke to reporters and answered questions about plans to send about 500 more agents and equipment to the nation’s southwestern border and Mexico to fight Mexican drug cartels and keep violence from spilling over into the United States. … “

    How does the Bounel spin his way out of this debacle?
    I’m sure Bounel will blame it on Bush.

    Have you seen Bounel’s Facebook page?

    Mark Halperin, a senior political analyst for MSNBC, gave Obama another name last week. It’s Dick if I remember correctly.

    “@ThePatriotMuckraker Haha. I think their days are numbered. They violated countless laws intentionally arming drug cartels. They got caught and are trying to cover it up. Classic. Eric Holder, Janets fat ass, and any ATF agent trying to obstructe justice, lie to congress, or watched the guns leave the border into mexico should be and will be charged. Eric is probably going to get fired at least which is honestly good enough for me but getting rid of the ATF would be beautiful. – Mr…”
