Any Integrity Left In owe-bama Regime?
I contend not very much, at least in the Department of (Social) Justice!! 'General' holder is doing everything he can think of to deflect the implications and effects of 'Gunwalker' ....or.... 'Gunrunner' ....or.... 'Fast 'n' Furious' ....or.... what ever they're calling this failed operation, today.
While the basis of this operation began with the evil President Bush-43's administration with the intention of stopping unscrupulous American arms dealers and arresting those who supply firearms to the Mexican drug cartels, general thugs and other miscreants; George Soros, "Clown Prince" owe-bama and 'General' holder,et al; made serious changes to the concept when it came under their purview!! The operation evolved into a plan to circumvent the Second Amendment which allows--nay, enforces--the private ownership of firearms. If the regime could illustrate that the provisions of the Second Amendment allowed for more and more guns on the street; more and more guns supplied to the warring factions in Mexico, they'd be in a position to cram-down a circumvention of the Second Amendment by executive order-to protect Americans! That didn't work so well; Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed on December 14, 2010 and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata was kill on February 15, 2011, both by 'Gunwalker' weapons.
After the "Tea Party" mandate put the House of Representatives' majority into republicRAT hands, Rep Darryl Issa (r, Ca-49) became Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Rep Issa initiated an investigation of the 'Gunwalker' fiasco. It has been alleged and assumed by most who have a 'working knowledge' of the Soros/Jarrett/owe-bama Regime, that the guilt goes all the way to the top: George Soros, Valarie Jarrett and "Clown Prince" owe-bama (in that order)!! 'General' holder is alleging that he knew nothing of the operation until March of 2011, after both federal agents had been killed with 'Gunwalker' weapons. There is 'U-Tube' video of 'General' holder speaking on that very subject early in 2009!! Now, to the current facts and allegations:
This is only parts of the most recent actions. The original program started by that evil President Bush-43 in 2005 as a pilot project in Laredo, Texas that was taken national in 2006. The 'Gunrunner' project became a part of the ATF's Southwest Border Initiative which sought to reduce cross-border drug and weapons traffic. According to a GAO report, during 2007 and 2008--both evil Bush-43 years--the ATF trained 961 Mexican police officers in the use of 'eTrace-' a secure, online weapons tracing site operated by the ATF.
"Gunwalker" Bill Newell (aka: "Bloody Bill"), formerly the head of the ATF's Phoenix Office during 'Gunwalker,' was in line to be promoted to the ATF Attache to Mexico. Before he could get his 'gray 'n' grungies' packed, the Department of (Social) Justice heaped another promotion on him; to "Special Assistant" to the Assistant Director of the ATF for the Office of Management. What's better than hiding a perpetrator in plain sight?? The ATF's Office of Management is conducting an internal "investigation" into 'Gunwalker!!' Some allege that Mexico may seek Newell's extradition to answer for the hundreds of Mexican civilian deaths related to 'Gunwalker.'
In continuing the regime cover-up of 'Gunwalker,' et al, William McMahon, the ATF Special-Agent-in-Charge of the Phoenix Field Division, is being promoted to ATF Assistant Deputy Director for Operations. Another example of 'hiding the perp in plain sight.'
Another piece in the 'hide the perp in plain sight' puzzle, is the promotion of David Voth, the ATF-Phoenix supervisor, Group VII; to a branch chief in the ATF's Tobacco Division. Voth is the guy who--via several emails--placated a gunshop owner who notified the ATF of suspicious activities by persons attempting to buy guns 'by the hundreds!'
Now that members of the "Clown Prince" owe-bama Regime have changed the 'Gunrunner' rules more to their liking; inspite of having access to the aforementioned GAO report, the regime claims that less than twenty Mexican police have been trained in the use of eTrace(?!?) As noted by Constitutional scholars, the unstated objective of the owe-bama Regime seemingly was to implicate the Second Amendment's freedoms as the cause for these weapons crossing the Mexican border. In their convoluted minds, this would give the owe-bama Regime just cause to circumvent the Second Amendment legislatively or after the "Tea Party" mandate of November 2010, to use executive orders as the circumvention 'method-of-choice!'
The slime of this operation; the slime of the entire regime has to go all the way to the top, if for no other reason than the amateurish actions of the vast majority of regime members!! Quotes of two of the Founding Fathers have never been more applicable than they are today:
Thomas Jefferson- "The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
Samuel Adams- "The Constitution shall never be construed.... to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable people from keeping their own arms."
The owe-bama Amateur Hour must come to a premature end!!
