GUNRUNNERS Of The Obama Nation

 “I spilled blood for this agency trying to make sure that suspects don’t get crime guns and in Gunrunner, the exact opposite policy took place.”

–Jay Dobyns, ATF agent

Cui bono?

The ancient Romans, after all these years still wiser in many ways than we, used this phrase, meaning “as a benefit to whom”, to imply a covert purpose or to indicate that the party responsible for something may not be who it initially appears to be.  It is a phrase worth keeping in mind when attempting to dissect the unfolding arms trafficking scandal at Barack Obama’s Department of Justice, a scandal that now apparently also includes the importation of firearms into Honduras by ATF agents in Tampa.  Who benefits, indeed–a question answered best, perhaps, by the Sipsey Street Irregulars:

Let’s get one thing straight, Gunwalker is NOT simply an ATF scandal. It IS an OBAMA scandal. ATF was just one tool in the hands of evil higher-ups. (Sipsey Street Irregulars)

The left-collectivist gun confiscationists, unable to ignore the Gunwalker Scandal any longer, are chanting the “Permanent Director, More Gun Control” mantra louder, longer and more frequently now.

[…] Now folks, when rabid anti-gunners like Helmke get around to accepting the ATF’s demise, you’ve got to ask yourself why. The answer? They are protecting the larger mission — both the Obama administration and the gun control mission. This scandal is so bad, they know they’ll have to give up something. But they also know that the firearm laws of the United States are NOT going to be repealed anytime soon.

As a matter of fact, these schmucks — both the gun confiscationists and the guilty Gunwalker conspirators — NEED you to think that this is about the ATF. The more folks focus on the tree of the ATF, the less they’re worried about the larger forest of their naked attempt to subvert the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States.

The Gunwalker Scandal Made Simple

There are five key accusations against ATF and DOJ made by ATF whistleblowers and other sources within FedGov:

1. That they instructed U.S. gun dealers to proceed with questionable and illegal sales of firearms to suspected gunrunners.

2. That they allowed or even assisted in those guns crossing the U.S. border into Mexico to “boost the numbers” of American civilian market firearms seized in Mexico and thereby provide the justification for more firearm restrictions on American citizens and more power and money for ATF.

3. That they intentionally kept Mexican authorities in the dark about the operation, even over objections of their own agents.

4. That weapons that the ATF let “walk” to Mexico were involved in the deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE agent Jaime Zapata, as well as at least hundreds of Mexican citizens.

5. That at least since the death of Brian Terry on 14 December, the Obama administration is engaged in a full-press cover-up of the facts behind what has come to be known as the “Gunwalker Scandal.”

Cui bono?  Rush Limbaugh & PJM ask the same question: “Was ‘Gunwalker’ a PR Op for Gun Control?”

The most damning revelations coming out of the hearings on Operation Fast and Furious held by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform are the unmistakable indications that the program was never designed to succeed as a law enforcement operation at all.

Cui bono? Obama Adminstration to Implement More Gun Control Without Congress

Spokesman Jay Carney said that the new steps would be made public “in the near future.” He didn’t offer details, but people involved in talks at the Justice Department to craft the new measures said they expected to see something in the next several weeks. Whatever is proposed is not expected to involve legislation or take on major issues, like banning assault weapons, but could include executive action to strengthen the background check system or other steps.

Cui bono?

Gun control, implemented by Barack Obama’s Department of InJustice? Who benefits? Do we even have to ask?

    I don’t know who turns my stomach more….Obama or Holder (or Stedman, as Dennis Miller calls him…haha). They’re two peas in a pod, aren’t they? One’s just as dangerous as the other.

  2. My,my; the emperor has no cloths. Shall we call it indecent exposure?

  3. Bob Mack says:

    Well, it sure ain’t decent, JIM.

  4. loopyloo305 says:

    I think that it is all starting to come together and that at the very least Holder will fall. It would be nice if Obama went with him!

  5. It seems to me that this could bring about Obama’s being forced out of office before the end of his first term. We’ll see.

    In my view, this battle about the debt ceiling, particularly Obama’s position, is an attempt to keep Americans from focusing on the the administration’s gun-running operations.

    Obama would just love to pass a gun control law before the election……. that’s if we have one?

  7. TexasFred says:

    If Fast and Furious can’t, or doesn’t spell the end of an ERROR, Obama, then there is NO justice in this world and America is truly lost!

    Thank you for the *hat tip* my friends, it is seriously appreciated!

    Anyone noticed the closer we get to 2012 the bolder Obama and cohorts become? Obviously they don’t care about this scandal as they are going to try to ram through gun control anyway and, as usual, dodge Congress through use of Exec Order! And they are considering doing the same when it comes to raising the debt limit using clause 4 of the 14 Amendment (a post Civil War Reconstruction amendment btw). Sorry but where does BO get the idea that Exec Orders give him dictator powers? Don’t think that is what they were set up for! If I didn’t know better I’d say it is almost as if BO wants to move the People into a state of open and violent rebellion. Of course that would give him Marshal Law powers and we could forget the 2012 elections altogether which, I suspect, is EXACTLY what he is hoping for. Oh he’s a slick slick DOG 🙂

    He continues to defy the Courts and Congress. There is no reason to think he will not sign an executive order. He has been testing and the GOP stays mute.

  11. Angel says:

    it seems nothing they do is punished so they keep ratcheting it up BOB! Have a super Sunday~! hugsssssssss~!

  12. Bob Mack says:

    Hi, ANGEL. Punish ’em at the ballot box in 2012, I hope…

  13. Bunni says:

    These criminal acts were ok’s at the very top. o & stedman, worse gangbangers than all the mexican ones put together! I hope they get jailed and worse for this. I won’t hold my breath, the corruption is mind boggling. Nixon was like a prayer meeting compared to this.

      How ’bout this twist (by Lars Larson) – Stimulus Used to Buy Guns For Drug Cartels

      How do you think all that stimulus money got spent? Would you believe on sending guns to drug cartels in Mexico?

      I certainly hope you’ve heard about Operation Gunrunner, you know this is one of those programs that the ATF put on, and it seems as though the conspiracy theorists may have been right.
      The Obama administration hates guns. Obama hated them as a legislator in Illinois. Eric Holder, who is Attorney General, hates the idea of Americans owning guns, and they’d like to be able to take them away.
      So to convince Americans, what do they do? They said: Well we’ve got all kinds of American guns coming from gun shows into the hands of drug cartels. Then they ordered the ATF to NOT stop suspicious sales being reported by Phoenix area gun sellers – ATF was just to track them. $10 million in stimulus money was used to fund this crazy project; that never actually ran down any of the cartels, but it did result in a number of deaths.

      Is that the way you wanted your stimulus money spent?

      Nixon went down for an 18 1/2 minute tape gap…Obama’s covered up everything he’s done for 49 years.
