"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

Petition to Prosecute Eric Holder

Consider the idea (it is my belief) that the main objectives of the Fast and Furious gun running operations was to undermine our 2nd ammendment, then decide if you think Holder should be prosecuted if he lied under oath to Congress in terms of his involvement and/or knowledge of the operation.

My opinion is that 'We the People' need to send a loud and clear signal to our government that Holder is not above the law, and that we aren't going to put up with this underhanded bullsquat.

This e-mail was in my inbox this morning discussing this matter and linking to an insta-petition that with a click sends e-mails or faxes to your specific representatives. I invite you to read on...
"Dear Patriot,
Operation Fast and Furious is an inherently idiotic idea that has resulted in the death of a Border Patrol Agent, as well as the deaths of many Mexican nationals. And even after federal officials became aware of these deaths, there were three egregious criminal actions taken. First, federal officials tried to cover up evidence at a murder scene. Second, the federal agent who blew the whistle on Operation Fast and Furious was fired for doing so. Finally, Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress under oath about his knowledge of Fast and Furious.

When US B order Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered in December 2010, two guns were discovered at the murder scene. As it would turn out, these guns were two of literally thousands of guns that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed to illegally cross the border into Mexico as part of the ill-advised - and likely illegal - Operation Fast and Furious. ATF would end up losing track of over 1,000 of those weapons, many of which have turned up at a dozen violent crime scenes in Mexico. Officials then attempted to cover up the fact that the AK-47s that killed Agent Terry were a part of the operation.

The details of Fast and Furious, also called Project Gunrunner, may have never come to light without Agent Vince Cefalu blowing the whistle. After going public with the details, ATF conducted seven internal affairs investigations into Agent Cefalu and, frustrated that they couldn't charge him with a crime, they settled for firing him after 30 years of service for what they called a "lack of candor" in June.

The most obvious crime, for which there must be justice, happened when Attorney General Eric Holder was called before Congress to explain under oath what happened with Fast and Furious. Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Rep. Darrell Issa, asked Holder a direct question: on what date did he first learn about Fast and Furious? Holder responded, "I'm not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks." But now internal memos are surfacing showing that Eric Holder had known about the operation for at least 10 months!

It's obvious that this amounts to systemic criminal behavior on the part of Justice Department and ATF agents, and the full extent of this criminal behavior should be investigated. But one crime we know for sure: when Eric Holder perjured himself before Congress, he committed a crime for which he must be held accountable! We've launched our Prosecute Eric Holder petition, and we need every patriot who reads this email to stand with us and tell Congress that we will not allow this criminal behavior on our watch! A special prosecutor must be appointed to investigate and prosecute the criminal that Barack Obama has running the US Department of Justice!

Please, take a moment to use our state-of-the-art petition system to contact your elected officials and leave your comments on the petition as well. It costs nothing to participate, and we need to make our voice heard! *You are not required to make a donation to participate, but your contributions allow us to continue to offer this service free of charge to patriots across the country.

Eric Holder must be held accountable. Please, lend your voice to the Prosecute Eric Holder petition.
