Fast & Furious Approaches Full Boil

For the most part the “mainstream” media has attempted to downplay or ignore the Obama Regime’s Mexican gun-running operation. This is fortunate, because it will delay the pot boiling over onto the public until closer to the election. The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has been showing much more curiosity than Obama’s media enablers, who already find themselves having to report on it:

CBS, which to its credit took a leading role in lifting the rock on the operation, is even beginning to shine a light on its purpose: to erode our precious Second Amendment liberties.

Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation “Fast and Furious” to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales. …

On July 14, 2010 after ATF headquarters in Washington D.C. received an update on Fast and Furious, ATF Field Ops Assistant Director Mark Chait emailed Bill Newell, ATF’s Phoenix Special Agent in Charge of Fast and Furious:

“Bill – can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same (licensed gun dealer) and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks.”

On Jan. 4, 2011, as ATF prepared a press conference to announce arrests in Fast and Furious, Newell saw it as “(A)nother time to address Multiple Sale on Long Guns issue.” And a day after the press conference, Chait emailed Newell: “Bill–well done yesterday… (I)n light of our request for Demand letter 3, this case could be a strong supporting factor if we can determine how many multiple sales of long guns occurred during the course of this case.”

Gun dealers were strong-armed into providing weapons to Mexican drug cartels against their own judgment so that the government could use the inevitably ensuing bloodshed as a pretext to curtail their right to do business — and our right to defend ourselves from that same rogue government.

The only thing more outrageous than the Obama Regime’s actions in Fast & Furious is its anti-constitutional motive, which can best be described as treasonous.

No informed person worthy to be called American would give these fifth columnists another four years to destroy the USA from within. Fortunately keeping people uninformed may not be as easy as it was in 2008.

The Department of Social Justice continues to stonewall. But:

“In light of the evidence, the Justice Department’s refusal to answer questions about the role Operation Fast and Furious was supposed to play in advancing new firearms regulations is simply unacceptable,” Rep. [Darrell] Issa [R-CA] told CBS News.

Those among the public who haven’t degenerated into mindless sheep won’t accept it either.

    I don’t know if you noticed (perhaps it was yesterday’s news and you already did a thread on it), but not only are the obamunists paying people with our tax money to arm the cartels, but they also were involved with funding them too. Apparently we had undercover people directly involved in the transportation of large sums of drug profits back to Mexico.

  2. Bob Roberts says:

    DEMAND LETTER THREE – THE SMOKING GUN THAT REVEALS WHAT THE OBAMUNISTS WERE UP TO ALL ALONG. In response, Charlie Rangel promised to investigate, and formally clear, himself yet again.

  3. AC says:

    Remember the issue with the Obama campaign accepting donations from those untraceable, prepaid gift cards? There was an anomaly of large donations from south Texas, so either hardworking roofers and busboys were giving Obama one month or more of their under the table wages, or the source was more sinister and south of the border.

    I wonder if Coss was even extended the courtesy of the handwritten thank you notes Obama gave to big donors.

    He wouldn’t be the first Dem to do it, either. Remember Clinton’s entanglement with that mess in Mena?

  4. Hedgehog says:

    This operation was conceived at the political level, and it was designed for a political purpose. Gun control. They engaged in illegal activity with deadly consequences for political purposes. The end justifies the means, right? That’s who we are dealing with here. These people, Obama, Holder, Breuer and others are criminals. But they are Communists. What else would you expect?

  5. SNuss says:

    Holder had to be(intentionally?)ignorant of what happened in Fast and Furious, incompetant beyond belief,or guilty as sin of manipulating this program to justify more restrictve anti-gun laws.
    In any case, Holder should either resign,or be impeached.

  6. Path says:

    Hedgegog – I agree. So, why can’t impeachment proceedings be started now against Obama, Holder, Breuer and, possibly, others?????

    The bastards are guilty of treason and murder. String ’em up. I have more compassion for a cockroach than for the current post-turtles.

  9. Bill T says:

    How about a little spillover to go along with F&F

    Investigators say the suspects could be Zetas, members of a drug cartel that are showing up more and more in Houston.

    Holder Says Definition Of “Lying” To Congress Depends On “State Of Mind”

    Maybe Ferret-Face should have a little background music to go along with his testimony!

  11. Joek Loth says:

    When in the hell is the hammer really gonna come down on these two assholes. Hell holder should be imprisoned for the shit he did in his last stint in clintons admin.
    obamunist should be execu… for treason etc., ad nauseum.

  12. Joek Loth says:

    sorry; “clintons doj”.

  13. Apostle53 says:

    Their excuse: Bush started it!

  14. A. Levy says:

    Did anyone actually think the Left would give up it’s decades-old war on guns simply because of a SCOTUS decision affirming the 2nd Amendment? Disarming Americans has always been, and continues to be, a very vital part of the communist-controlled Lefts plan to gain total control of the people. In fact, the plan is quite visible when you look at Gestapo’esque agencies like the EPA, DOE, IRS, ATF, and many others. All they need to accomplish their task is for the American people to continue getting weaker and dumber. And that part seems to be going along just fine.

    Ted… where DID you find that shirt??? I WANT ONE!!!

  16. Bill T says:

    Feds go overboard to punish gun family
    Their alleged crime is that, over the course of several months, they sold between 15 and 30 guns to people they “knew, or should have known” were gun traffickers for Mexican drug gangs.
