David Codrea draws my attention to this latest from the ill-named Western Journalism Center."Quit saying baaaaad things about my Johnny."
But according to the man who broke the “Gunwalker” story a year and a half ago, threatening letters to Speaker Boehner might no longer be necessary. Sources in Washington, DC have told blogger and citizen reporter Mike Vanderboegh that Republican leaders have already decided to close down the Fast and Furious investigation and halt contempt proceedings against Eric Holder. . .
Now the WJC's work on the Gunwalker scandal has in the past been at best duplicative, at worst plagiaristic and always subject to exaggerated headlines which they craft out of half cloth. They did not attempt to interview me for this story, which ought to tell you everything you need to know since they make me the center of it.
Here is what I know currently about the subjects of the contempt citation and the backroom fighting amongst the GOP leadership and rank-and-file that has been going on. If it seems frustratingly opaque, that is because the parties have been singularly effective at imposing a news blackout so that they either:
a. Do not compromise their very clever plans to lay low the Obamanoids, or
b. Don't want us to find about a sellout until the very last minute.
First, you should understand that no one on the Committee -- staffers or Congressmen -- communicates with me directly these days. My emails are not answered. My requests even through third or fourth parties are ignored.
Despite this, I am assured indirectly through cut-outs by people supposedly "close to the Committee" that all will be revealed by the middle of June at the latest and they fairly beg me not to do something that "will discredit the investigation" -- presumably my threat to begin a campaign to break GOP windows as punishment for a possible Boehner sellout. Some of these arguments have been quite eloquent and factually persuasive, pointing out linkages I had not considered.
There is, in truth, no real loss in waiting as at least someone there in DC seems to recognize the serious of my intent and there is plenty of time to wreck maximum discredit and disruption on GOP election hopes -- and that includes Romney. The leadership of both sides have been able to hide behind the lack of press coverage and they like it that way. We, however, have the power to change that if necessary. There is plenty of time and there are plenty of rocks laying about -- and a salivating collectivist media who would like nothing better than to lay vandalism charges at the foot of the GOP.
Just understand, as the WJC apparently does not, that when I report what some of my sources say, it is not my conclusion. I have been very plain with y'all about the "nacht und nebel" that has been thrown up around the Holder contempt citation. Indeed, if I HAD concluded that, I would have issued a call to action already.
I await further events. But the Committee, and especially Obama's golf partner John Boehner, should not conclude that we will wait forever on hazy promises sent fourth-hand.
