(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Court Records of Slain USBP Agent Brian Terry Ordered Sealed.


“Transparency and the rule of law will be the touchstones of this presidency.”
-Barack Hussein Obama, Inauguration, 2009

From the Corruption Chronicles of Judicial Watch:

The Obama Administration has abruptly sealed court records containing alarming details of how Mexican drug smugglers murdered a U.S. Border patrol agent with a gun connected to a failed federal experiment that allowed firearms to be smuggled into Mexico.

This means information will now be kept from the public as well as the media. Could this be a cover-up on the part of the “most transparent” administration in history? After all, the rifle used to kill the federal agent (Brian Terry) last December in Arizona’s Peck Canyon was part of the now infamous Operation Fast and Furious. Conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the disastrous scheme allowed guns to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels.

Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of more than 1,000 guns which have been used in numerous crimes. In Terry’s case, five illegal immigrants armed with at least two semi-automatic assault rifles were hunting for U.S. Border Patrol agents near a desert watering hole just north of the Arizona-Mexico border when a firefight erupted and Terry got hit.

We know this only because Washington D.C.’s conservative newspaper , the Washington Times, got ahold of the court documents before the government suddenly made them off limits. The now-sealed federal grand jury indictment tells the frightening story of how Terry was gunned down by Mexican drug smugglers patrolling the rugged desert with the intent to “intentionally and forcibly assault” Border Patrol agents.

You can see why the administration wants to keep this information from the public and the media, considering the smugglers were essentially armed by the U.S. government. Truth is, no one will know the reason for the confiscation of public court records in this case because the judge’s decision to seal it was also sealed, according to the news story. That means the public or media won’t have access to any new or old evidence, filings, rulings or arguments.

Transparency? Hardly. Instead, it reeks of corruption, obfuscation, obstructionism, incompetence and purposeful stonewalling.

Brian Terry was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the United States Border Patrol for 3 1/2 years. He had previously served as a police officer with the Lincoln Park, Michigan, Police Department. He is survived by his parents, brother, two sisters, five nieces, and one nephew.

And now the Obama Administration wants the public to forget him entirely.

Has this country ever elected a more naive president than the Lightbringer? The fan belt inspector's fingerprints are all over this.

Well, I'm not surprised that Obama wants to cover up what happened.

Where are Woodward and Bernstein?

Revolution will be horrible.
But I'm not sure I see another way to fix this problem.
Be prepared.

Greybeard: getting prepared indeed. It's interesting to listen to the news spin the employment numbers and Black Friday numbers. No one's paying attention to the impending total fold of the Euro and its impact on the 17 nations of the EU and, by extension, its impact on the US.

Fox is paying attention to the E.U., BZ, but the most interesting thing about there are the reports from some quarters that the U.S. may actually be in worse shape than some of the E.U. Nations.
Yet we're supposed to bail them out?
Print that money.
The rest of us are gathering food, water, shelter, guns, and ammo. I think I'm actually beginning to hear the cry of the wolves just over the horizon.

I was in Mexico City watching the News on TV when the newscaster asked what the hell was going on?

Three Cartel Bosses had just been captured.

They were three morons that never made it past sixth grade.

How the Hell were they able to operate a Cartel as elusive as the one they claimed to own.

The newscaster did not mention names, but did give initials of who she suspected was behind them: CIA.

I wonder if this is the same CIA that taught the towelheads how to make bombs to bury in the ground and blow our kids to smitherines?

Three guesses.

St Michael: what would be the point of the CIA's intervention in Mexico with regards to drug cartels?
