It is our distinct honor to now carry the commentaries and reports of Tom Tancredo, former Representative to Congress of the State of Colorado and 2008 candidate for U.S. President. His CongressmanTomTancredo.com regularly features his articles, as does WorldNetDaily.
Former Congressman Tancredo currently serves as chairman of Rocky Mountain Foundation, co-chairman of the anti-illegal immigration Team America PAC, and honorary chairman of Youth for Western Civilization. He speaks frequently on cable news, talk radio, and on college campuses – where his mere presence has led leftists to riot on multiple occasions. His book, In Mortal Danger: The Battle for America’s Border and Security was published in 2006.

As an attorney general Holder couldn’t get more arrogant–or outrageous in his use of power. Brian Terry, a U.S. border agent, is gunned down by a drug smuggler using a semi-automatic assault rifle provided him by the ATF during the infamous Operation Fast and Furious and not only have the court records of the case been sealed by the court–the reason why the judge so ruled has been sealed.
So what’s the “Most Transparent Administration in History” trying to hide? We know that Mr. Holder was anything but forthcoming when he testified before Congress about this tragically dumb exercise. But doesn’t the murder of a U.S agent deserve better than this? If the facts were known would it not give the agent’s family some closure-and give fellow agents valuable information that might save their lives?
We know that Agent Brian Terry was murdered by Mexican drug smugglers who were patrolling our border with the intent to harm and kill border agents. It wasn’t the first time and won’t be the last, so the hows and whys could save American lives. But the Administration seems far more interested in saving face–wouldn’t want to have to explain themselves in an election year-it’s bad for business.
But what is good for the business of re-election is to keep the Left happy–and that includes illegal aliens and their allies. This past summer South Carolina followed our friends in Arizona and Alabama and passed a tough immigration law. It was to go into effect the first of the year, but Holder and his cronies have filed a lawsuit to try and kill the law while still in its infancy. Forget that South Carolinians overwhelmingly support it–much the same as Americans in Alabama and Arizona support their tough laws. Washington refuses to do its job of enforcing laws against illegal immigrants and they sure aren’t about to allow anyone else to do it either–no matter what the citizens want.
The only way to stop this heavy-handed abuse of federal power is to rid ourselves of the corrupt Obama Administration and to pack the halls of Congress with men and women who will fight for our rights. We have the candidates who, if elected, will do it–and next week we’ll begin to let you know who they are–and we’ll keep you informed all the way to Election Day. Then maybe we can get some justice for Agent Brian Terry.
I hope to have your support of our efforts–because we need your help if we are to preserve this nation and our freedoms.
God Bless you!
