Soon-to-be congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) is attacking the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), a federal bureaucracy that has undermined the 2nd Amendment for decades.
“10 years ago today, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered in cold blood with a gun provided to Mexican drug cartels through Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s ATF “Fast & Furious” program,” she wrote in a Twitter post.
“The ATF is an oppressive government agency that should be DEFUNDED and ELIMINATED!” she added.

The murderer of Brian Terry was sentenced earlier this year. He died because of the ATF’s incredible negligence and overreach, which has been the modus operandi of the bureaucracy since its inception:
A man convicted of shooting a U.S. Border Patrol agent nine years ago in a case that exposed a botched federal gun operation known as “Fast and Furious” was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison.
U.S. District Judge David C. Bury of Tucson sentenced Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes to the mandatory life sentence after hearing tearful statements from the sisters of Brian Terry, the agent who was fatally shot while on a mission near Rio Rico on Dec. 14, 2010.
Osorio-Arellanes is one of seven defendants who were charged in Terry’s slaying. Osorio-Arellanes was convicted of first-degree murder and other charges last year after being extradited from Mexico in 2018.
Terry’s death exposed the “Fast and Furious” operation, in which U.S. federal agents allowed criminals to buy firearms with the intention of tracking them to criminal organizations. But the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lost track of most of the guns, including two found at the scene of Terry’s death.
The Obama administration was heavily criticized for the operation. Former Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt by Congress for refusing to turn over documents related to the sting.
The Terry family has flown from Michigan to Tucson to attend hearings in several cases tied to the agent’s death. On Wednesday, his two sisters spoke tearfully about life without their youngest brother.
Terry “was a man filled with so much dedication to keeping our country safe,” sister Kelly Willis said. He lit up every room he walked in had a beautiful smile, she added.
“You would think the time lessens the heartache, but it doesn’t,” she said.
The ATF was also behind the infamous events at Ruby Ridge that galvanized millions of patriots against the federal swamp in the early 1990s:
PATCON is acronym for Patriot Conspiracy, a Clinton-Reno-Holder, FBI and ATF undercover operation. PATCON was designed to infiltrate and incite the milita and evangelical Christians to violence so that the Department of Justice could crush them. Ruby Ridge was a PATCON operation.

They also had their fingerprints all over the slaughter of cult leader David Koresh’s followers in Waco, Tx.:
Waco was an ATF photo-op that went badly for the Director of the ATF.
The FBI took over and fired ~30 grenades thru the walls of the Waco compound, simultaneous to their "tank" smashing into the ground floor of the compound where their bedrooms were, blocking the hallway/escape. https://t.co/bmBObEKXmO pic.twitter.com/4DKZAUyuUx

Taylor Greene is right to push for the shuttering of the ATF, which the Founding Fathers may have considered to be a standing army at war with the Constitution.
Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments
Hawley is no leader.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.
Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
HAWLEY: "I think ex-president's rhetoric on the day was inflammatory. I think it was irresponsible. I think it was wrong. But I think that this impeachment effort is, I mean, I think it's blatantly unconstitutional. It's a really really, really dangerous precedent."

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.
There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
