Along with other rights, like our First Amendment-sworn right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion, our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is a right with which the communist elites in our out-of-control government are desperate to do away, and it looks like they have been going to outrageous lengths to create false excuses to do so.
By now, you have certainly heard about Project Gunrunner and the recently revealed Fast and Furious operation, a scandal that could eclipse even Watergate in the extent of the government cover-up, as fall-out from it continues to descend on the Obama administration.
AWR Hawkins reports at Breitbart’s Big Government website,
“News about Operation ‘Fast and Furious’ is now ubiquitous. Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson’s Fourth of July testimony to Senator Charles Grassley and Representative Darrell Issa blew the cover off what appears to be one of the biggest political cover-ups in the last 50 years.
In the middle of it is Attorney General Eric Holder, who now feigns a blissful ignorance about the whole mess: having nothing to say about its beginnings as Operation ‘Gunrunner’ or its latest incarnation as ‘Fast and Furious.’
For those who might not know, Operation ‘Gunrunner’ was the plan to sell guns to ‘straw purchasers’ with suspected ties to the Mexican cartel. Apparently, ATF was then banking on those purchasers to walk the guns across the border into Mexico. Operation ‘Fast and Furious’ was the plan to follow those guns until they were in cartel hands and then make apprehensions. (For the record, I concur with those who believe this was all an attempt to flood the border with weapons in order to create a degree of chaos sufficient to convince us of the supposed-need for more gun control in America.)
Anyway, the problem with Holder’s feigned ignorance is that he gave a speech in Cuernavaca, Mexico, on April 2, 2009, in which he boasted about Operation ‘Gunrunner’ and told Mexican authorities of everything he was doing to insure its success.
Holder told the audience:
Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion.
… But once the whole thing got crazy, and ‘Fast and Furious’ left Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry dead, Holder and others in the Justice Department went from boasting about such projects to pressuring people like Acting ATF Director Melson to keep their mouths shut.”
In a refreshing display of opposition to the typically thuggish tactics of this lawless Obama administration, Mr. Melson held firmly and refused to keep his mouth shut. He instead met with California Republican Congressman Darrell Issa and Iowa Republican Senator Chuck Grassley in a closed-door meeting on July 4th. The meeting was quite revealing, and it led to a serious and disturbing spotlight being turned on the Obama Justice Department under Eric Holder.
Holder himself has been squirming and obfuscating to beat the band, as was seen in his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in early May. Holder appears to be actively obstructing the official investigations into Operation Fast and Furious, and that is a crime. The day after the secret meeting between Mr. Melson and Sen. Grassley and Rep. Issa, the two men shot off a scathing letter to Eric Holder in which they laid on the line some of what Mr. Melson revealed to them in the meeting.
Among other things, they wrote,
“According to Mr. Melson, he and ATF’s senior leadership team moved to reassign every manager involved in Fast and Furious, from the Deputy Assistant Director for Field Operations down to the Group Supervisor, after learning the facts in those documents. Mr. Melson also said he was not allowed to communicate to Congress the reasons for the reassignments. He claimed that ATF’s senior leadership would have preferred to be more cooperative with our inquiry much earlier in the process. However, he said that Justice Department officials directed them not to respond and took full control of replying to briefing and document requests from Congress. The result is that Congress only got the parts of the story that the Department wanted us to hear. If his account is accurate, then ATF leadership appears to have been effectively muzzled while the DOJ sent over false denials and buried its head in the sand. That approach distorted the truth and obstructed our investigation. The Department’s inability or unwillingness to be more forthcoming served to conceal critical information that we are now learning about the involvement of other agencies, including the DEA and the FBI.”
So, here we have Eric Holder fast and furiously attempting to hide pertinent (and possibly incriminating?) information from investigating officials. When will Holder be held accountable for his malfeasance in office? This man takes the cake, almost as much as Barack Obama does! How dare he obstruct a congressional investigation? How dare he lie about his knowledge of Project Gunrunner? Well, we know the answer to that. Being part of a dictatorial communist regime, Holder, like Obama, believes he is somehow above the law. One day he will discover that he is not.
There simply has to come a time when those in our government who still love our country and Constitution must grab hold of the courage to go after this lawless Obama regime, come hell or high water. The American people are sick to death of Obama and his minions getting away with all manner of unconstitutional and illegal behavior, as though they are untouchable. They must be stopped!
Even Florida Republican Congressman Colonel Allen West is calling for Eric Holder to be removed from the Justice Department. Quoting Col. West, Michael Carl reports at WorldNetDaily,
“‘This is just another sad chapter in the Eric Holder book of ineptness and incompetence,’ West said. ‘Eric Holder needs to be brought before an investigative committee and if those charges are warranted he needs to be held accountable.
‘At least the president needs to realize that Eric Holder needs to be removed from the Department of Justice … or else it appears President Obama is complicit and in approval of the actions of his attorney general,’ he said.”
Colonel West is much kinder to Holder than I would be in Col. West’s position. I would not attribute to “ineptness and incompetence” what can better be explained as deliberate sabotage and subjugation of our nation’s laws, Constitution, foundations and freedoms by this entire Obama administration, including Eric Holder.
It is virtually impossible that Eric Holder was unaware of the workings of the Fast and Furious operation, and it is also unlikely that Barack Obama knew nothing. This awful scandal most certainly could land at the very steps of the White House—if we were able to have an unhampered investigation—after all, Holder is Obama’s man. Why would an operation of this magnitude be kept secret from Obama? It probably was not kept secret.
As Aaron Klein wrote for WorldNetDaily,
“Project Gunrunner was first founded under President Bush as a bipartisan effort in 2005, when it had its inception as a pilot run by ATF in conjunction with the Justice Department and the FBI.
While the operation was run by a few dozen officers under Bush, it has since received an infusion of cash from the Obama administration, becoming a full-time project staffed by more than 200.
As WND reported, tucked away inside Obama’s stimulus was $10 million in funding for the ATF’s Project Gunrunner. This is in addition to $11 million already provided to the program under Obama, and another $12 million more requested by the White House for the end of this year.”
Oh, sure—Obama had no knowledge whatsoever of the evil dealings of his biggest law enforcement agencies in flooding Mexican drug cartels with weapons. It is apparent that the Obama administration’s Justice Department is in some very hot water. It remains to be seen if justice will be done to the Justice Department and Eric Holder.
Naturally, this whole ordeal has raised many questions about the real purpose of Fast and Furious under the Obama regime. Plenty of us on the Right see it as a horribly plain “false flag operation.” Let us examine what that means. According to one source, the Truth Move website, a false flag operation is,
“… a classic tool of deception and espionage. Intelligence agencies are usually linked to most false flag terrorism.
False flag terror by a state upon its own population can be a powerful tool of control. False flag operations can range from intentional provocation or ‘letting things happen,’ all the way up to outright orchestration.”
So, what if this is a false flag operation? Then, what is the point? The point is to create a false idea—with false statistics to back it up—that American guns are the “problem” and a large contributing factor to the animalistic violence near the Mexican border. The further purpose is to cause such violent chaos, which will spill over into the U.S.—as it has already—that American citizens and lawmakers will be duped and scared into believing that even more gun control legislation is necessary to curb the gun violence in Mexico and bleeding into America.
This is nothing more than yet another attempt by the communist Left to grab our guns. It is also one of the more despicable things I have ever seen from our government, and that’s saying a lot in light of the truly terrible things we have seen from Washington in recent years. The investigation into this matter could reveal that our own government and agencies conspired to use millions of taxpayer dollars to put guns in the hands of maniac drug gang members in Mexico, knowing full well that those guns would be used to kill Mexican and American citizens.
I hope this scandal will be the undoing of Obama. Hey, I can dream, can’t I?
