Isn't MSNBC's slogan "Lean Forward"? They are truly in a bubble.

Holder's Answer to 'Fast and Furious' Records Requests: Blank Pages

April 30, 2012

According to Sharyl Attkisson, CBS News investigative correspondent:

For more than a year, CBS News has been investigating the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms' "Fast and Furious" operation and related cases that also employed the controversial tactic of "gunwalking."

With Justice Department officials refusing all interview requests to date, CBS News requested numerous public documents through the Freedom of Information Act.

So far, all of the requests that have been answered have been denied in part or in full.

This week, we received a partial response to a request made more than a year ago. It asked for communications involving "Project Gunrunner," the umbrella program for Fast and Furious, from 2010 through April 2011.

Specifically, it sought any communications to which any of the following top Justice officials were a party:

Attorney General Eric Holder; Lanny Breuer, Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division; Kevin Carwile, chief of the Capital Case Unit; and Deputy Assistant Attorney Generals Bruce Schwarz and Kenneth Blanco.

The response includes mostly-blank pages.

He's not the first despot n waiting who tells the world exactly what evil he has in mind only to have sophisticates tell us not to worry, it's metaphor, its campaign bluster, he really doesn't believe that. Trust me.

Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!"

(AP) — Former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley was able to greatly expand his retirement package and save $400,000 in contributions through some maneuvering within the state pension system, the Chicago Tribune and WGN-TV reported Wednesday.

Daley, who retired a year ago, receives benefits totaling nearly $184,000 a year, about $50,000 more than he would have otherwise received.

The Tribune/WGN-TV investigation found Daley was able to do this by briefly rejoining the legislative pension plan that he was part of as a state senator. One month later, he returned to the Chicago municipal pension fund.

That switch came two years into his time as mayor and made Daley eligible for a pension worth 85 percent of his mayoral salary. That's better than any other city employee gets.

The Tribune said that Daley declined to be interviewed for its story. His spokeswoman, Jacquelyn Heard, wrote in an email: "I can only assume that his pension was handled in the same manner that anyone's would be, given the length of service — nearly 40 years — in government."

The city of Chicago is coming under an increasingly heavy load of pension debt. Unfunded liabilities of the city's four pension funds have reached nearly $20 billion, adding to the burden on taxpayers and other current and future employees in the pension plans.

Daley's pension, too, will cost taxpayers throughout Illinois because his contributions to the General Assembly pension fund were not enough to cover the cost of the benefits he is receiving, the Tribune reported.
