When the Fast and Furious scandal which left Brian Terry, Jamie Zapata, and hundreds of Mexican nationals dead began to close in around Eric Holder Barack Obama claimed Executive Privilege and sealed the documents which I believe would have implicated Eric Holder and possibly Barack Obama.
Judicial Watch had filed a lawsuit asking for a “Vaughn List” of the documents which were being withheld and last month a court ordered the Obama regime to provide Judicial Watch with this list. Today the Department of Injustice complied with the order.
While a Vaughn List provides a list of documents which were withheld it does not provide the content of those documents, however there are some interesting tidbits which were learned as a result of this disclosure.
The Obama regime mislead the Congress and the people about “non-violent” illegal immigrants released from prison
Last year the Obama regime released over 2,000 illegal immigrants from jail. This drew the ire of the Congress, and in response ICE ensured both the Congress and the American people that only low-risk detainees were released in this effort to “save money.”
However USA Today has obtained some new documents that show the Obama regime misled the Congress and the American people–there were some very dangerous people released into the streets of the United States if this is true.

I have a couple of stories I want to get to tonight but they will not be until later on, so here is something to hold you all over. This is the latest Afterburner video by Bill Whittle entitled ‘Make Him Own it.’ In this video he explains why it is important for all of us to get out there and vote next month.
Audience at New Hampshire debate laughs at Jeanne Shaheen when she dodges a question on whether or not she supports Barack Obama’s agenda
As has been well-reported the Democrats who are considered to be vulnerable have been trying to distance themselves from Barack Obama, to the point where two have refused to answer whether or not they voted for him.
This was in evidence once again last night in a debate here in New Hampshire between Scott Brown and Jeanne Shaheen. Jeanne Shaheen was asked a simple yes or no question from the moderator: “Do you approve of the job Barack Obama is doing?” Needless to say, she did not give a yes or no answer and it drew laughter from the audience.
According to this Winston-Salem Journal report illegal immigrants have been found on the voting rolls in North Carolina.
Here is more:
The voter rolls kept by the State Board of Elections contain 145 names that belong to a certain category of ineligible voter – immigrants in the U.S. under a federal program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, according to elections officials.
Josh Lawson, an SBOE spokesman, said that election officials found out about the number Tuesday night, after the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles ran a specific search for drivers with DACA licenses.
And they just happen to be from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, what a coincidence! And, also according to the article, there may be more.
Either intentionally or unintentionally Barack Obama has been undercutting the Democrats who are trying to distance themselves from him in the upcoming election. Two have gone so far as to refuse to tell us if they voted for the President, which makes no sense because we all know they did so there is nothing to gain from this.
When asked about the President on the campaign trail some Democrats like to remind us that he is not on the ballot in 2014 instead of answering the question. This has certainly been the case here in New Hampshire. But what did Barack Obama do?
I sometimes write about local New Hampshire politics here on America’s Watchtower because I can do something about what is happening in my state and I like to keep my readers abreast of what is happening here from time to time. I do not generally write about the local politics of other states because I can do nothing about it. (Technically I could send money but I have a deep-seated personal belief that only the voters of a state should contribute to candidates in that state so I refuse to do so.)
However, every once in awhile a story pops up which I cannot ignore and this is one such story.
