While everyone is getting worked up over the current impeachment saga, another year goes by without any justice done to fallen Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Brian Terry was caught in the middle of the infamous federal gun-running program infamously known as “Fast and Furious.” Under this program, the ATF ran a series of sting operations to try sell firearms to Mexican cartel leaders and entrap them in the process. Interestingly enough, the ATF caught no cartel leaders, but it did see American weapons falls into the hands of Mexican cartels.
Late at night on December 14, 2010, Agent Terry and his BORTAC colleagues were assigned a mission to search for a Mexican “rip crew” in the southern Arizona border.
Rip crews refer to bandits who attack human and drug smuggling hikers near the border to take off whatever belongings or drugs they are carrying with them.
Agent Terry’s team confronted a group right before midnight that very night and the group shot at the agents. The group of marauders mortally wounded Terry.
Following Terry’s murder, many members of this bandit crew have faced justice. According to a Breitbart Texas report, Mexican law enforcement apprehended the final suspect involved in the murder of Agent Terry.
Although the Mexican bandits responsible for the murder are in the hands of the U.S. justice system, no one in the federal government has faced scrutiny for their actions in providing two guns to the killers, Terry’s family claimed when talking to Breitbart News.
Trump has promised to rectify this situation, but documents in connection to the Fast and Furious scandal are still shrouded in secrecy.
“Another year has passed and we are still waiting for answers — it has been eight years,” Agent Terry’s sister Michelle Balogh commented in email correspondence with Breitbart News. “We still want those in the previous administration to be held accountable for their actions in the botched gun program, Fast and Furious, that killed Brian.”
“Not only does Brian deserve answers and justice, but, the American people deserve to know the truth as well,” Balogh added. “Every holiday for us now has not been the same as Brian was killed just ten days before Christmas. It’s supposed to be a joyous season, but instead, we are reminded of his death and pain of his senseless murder.”
Balogh said the Trump Administration still needs to make the remaining Fast and Furious documents available so her family and the family of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agent Jaime Zapata can get the truth and finally get a sense of cloture.
Agent Terry’s brother, Kent Terry, has been very critical of the government and their failure to hold government officials responsible for their administrative malfeasances.
“It’s frustrating that oversight has never followed through with their investigation,” Kent Terry stated. “Eight years into this and no one [in the federal government] has been held accountable for their involvement in supplying guns to known criminals through the Fast and Furious gun scandal.”
“It’s sad and very disappointing how corrupt our Department of Justice is in not getting documents released under Attorneys General Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, and Jeff Sessions.”
“What is our justice system really hiding?” Terry asked. “It has been eight years and my family is still without closure.”
The Terry family has maintained its frustration about the lack of transparency from the federal government and its role in Brian Terry’s death. It has now been nine years without any solid answers.
The Fast and Furious program was described as Obama’s “Watergate” and represented an actual impeachable offense as opposed to the current Ukraine foreign aid nothing burger.
Too bad people’s short-term memory will ignore this example of ATF dereliction.
Tennessee’s Marsha Blackburn Calls on Ilhan Omar to Resign After Minnesota Democrat Calls to “Dismantle” U.S. “System of Oppression”
Omar appeared to refer to the American economy and political system as “oppression.”
Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn called upon Minnesota Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar to resign from office on Tuesday, hours after Omar had appeared to endorse the “dismantling” of the American “economy and political systems,” calling them a “system of oppression.”

“As long as our economy and our political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shutout, we will perpetuate this inequality. We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work to dismantle the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
Omar had made the remarks in the context of arguing that Democratic “criminal justice reform” was insufficient to answer the demands of the Black Lives Matter movement, calling for a more dramatic and wide-ranging restructuring of American society.
Blackburn called on the Minnesota freshman Democrat to resign hours after the anti-American speech in a tweet, stating that Omar could no longer credibly follow her oath to preserve the Constitution after referring to the American system broadly as a “system of oppression.”
Ilhan Omar took an oath to defend and protect the Constitution, not shred it. Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy. Omar should resign.https://t.co/ujBGxbWXtR

Omar’s grandfather Abukar Omar had served as a government official in the dictatorship of Siad Barre in Somalia, and the Omar family sought political refuge in the United States when the Barre dictatorship-known for its human rights abuses and a mass killing of minorities thought of by some as a genocide- was overthrown in a civil war.
