Accuracy in Media

Katie Pavlich, who literally wrote the book on Operation Fast and Furious, delivered a very timely talk to the Accuracy in Media “ObamaNation: A Day of Truth” conference on September 21st. It was the day after the Justice Department’s Inspector General issued a report on the scandalous gun walking operation that resulted in the death of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, plus hundreds of Mexicans. She points out that it was mainly blogs that broke this story, but that Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, who AIM honored this year with a Reed Irvine Award, had done an “amazing” job covering the story.

Pavlich, who is the news editor for, said that the President lied about the origins of Fast and Furious. “You had President Obama go on Univision,” she told the crowd, “which was interesting, because Jorge Ramos, who has asked about President Obama’s involvement in Fast and Furious in the past, did the job that the regular mainstream media in America won’t do and asked him some tough questions about Fast and Furious. In particular, ‘Don’t you think that Eric Holder should be fired, whether he knew about this or not, whether it’s incompetence or he lied about his involvement?’ And then President Obama lied. He straight up lied on Univision and said that Operation Fast and Furious was a Bush administration program. Well, considering Fast and Furious started in September and October 2009, long after President Bush left the office, it’s not a Bush administration program.”

Fast and Furious is back in the news this week, as Univision, a Spanish language network, partnered with ABC News, filed a devastating report showing some of the tragic consequences of this operation which sent some 2,000 guns into the hands of Mexico’s notorious drug cartels. The report, which appeared on the ABC News website, but did not air on their evening news shows, said, “As part of Operation Fast and Furious, ATF allowed 1,961 guns to ‘walk’ out of the U.S. in an effort to identify the high profile cartel leaders who received them. The agency eventually lost track of the weapons, and they often ended up in the hands of Mexican hit men, including those who ordered and carried out the attack on Salvarcar and El Aliviane, a rehabilitation center in Ciudad Juarez where 18 young men were killed on September 2, 2009.”

This AIM conference where Pavlich spoke was the same conference where Patrick Caddell said that the media have become “the “enemy of the American people.”

    Obama really has a problem with the truth

  • Thank U Accuracy in Media and Thank U Katie Pavich, for giving the American Public an objective and honest report; it’s so refreashing after all the lies and deceptions we have been getting from Obama & His Corrupt Administration.

  • There is absolutely no doubt that Barack Hussein Obama is a psychopath; a pathological liar; a malignant narcissist; a murderer; a traitor to the United States and a wannabe absolute tyrant.

    We Americans have a duty to eliminate this scourge from our country by whatever means necessary.

    We Americans owe an enormous debt to people like Katie Pavlich who must know they are risking their lives and fortune by exposing the truth about Obama and his minions who fear the truth above all things.

    May we all have the courage to stand up and fight these monsters to the death!

  • The Major

    I was going to ‘rant’ ,,,but Robert Birdwell just about said it all,,,thanks Robert,,,& thanks to Katie P. for this story.
    I still have just one ??? Which dumb schmuck in the WH inner circle of Marxists came up with the assinine idea of ‘forcing’ gun dealers to ‘sell’ guns to phony buyers,,,under threat of losing their licenses,,,so the Feds coud ‘track’ them to Mexico,,,not to mention P.R. for the FALN,,,or to S.America for other Marxist groups ??? Obama & his Czars + Hillary + Bloomberg etc. do NOT care about the Constitution,,,,especially the 2nd Amendment,,,which is there to PROTECT US from a Tyranical Gov’t ,,,such as obama & his goon squad.
    Remember,,,if the obama glove don’t FIT,,,you MUST vote MITT

  • NOBO2012

    Sadly, all the “truth” that has been spoken about BO the past 4 years is NEVER heard by the liberals and their corrupt media. Conservatives are preaching to the choir, and sadly we need liberals to hear the truth about their “one” who is on a systematic destruction of the US of A. Because they don’t hear it, they will still vote for Obama in 2012 and it’s bye bye America!

  • NOBO2012

    Most liars do.

  • I agree with much of your description of Mr. (intentional) Obama, but who did he murder using the accepted definition of murder? Also, using the Constitutional definition of treason, how is he a traitor?

    Of course we should all realize that Mr. Obama was brought up in the atmosphere of the old Mayor Daley Chicago Mob Democrat Party Machine politics which used blackmail, intimidation, union and Mob thugs, and murder. From his church to his wife to his mentors to his advisors, they’re all connected to that machine.

    I certainly believe that Mr. Obama should be impeached for dozens of reasons. I have a list of over 50 verifiable facts to substantiate grounds for impeachment. And if one accepts former Pres. Ford’s definition of grounds for impeachment, which I do, we could come up many more.

  • Roberto Enrique Benitez II

    Sadly, that’s true of many politicians regardless of party.

  • How true. I’ve talked to liberals who when you try to tell them the truth literally say, “I don’t want to hear it.” They want or need to emote but simply can’t stand facts.

    By hook or crook Mr. obama will win this November. The Mayor Daley Chicago Mob Democrat Party political machine will see to that.
