Once, long ago, at the start of our beloved and benevolent leader’s reign, his most trusted thug Rohm Emanuel famously stated, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” And thanks to the criminal ineptitude of the Obama administration it’s time to remind the Republicans in Congress of that fact.
Desperate to push their radical anti-gun agenda but lacking an opportune crisis, the Obama administration decided to manufacture one. And despite the desperate attempts by the anointed one’s henchmen to hide the truth, the criminal secrets behind the administration’s Project Gunrunner are coming to light.
Thanks to an ongoing Congressional investigation the truth of Project Gunrunner and Operation Fast and Furious is now coming to light. That the Obama administration has actively aided and abetted in the criminal smuggling of over 2000 illegally purchased firearms into Mexico by the Mexican drug cartels. That key Obama administration officials knowingly approved Project Gunrunner, that ATF Director Ken Melson knew, that Attorney General Eric Holder knew, that Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano knew. That Attorney General Eric Holder knowingly lied to Congress concerning Project Gunrunner.
And we now know that the Obama administration did all this for purely political gain. While knowingly aiding and abetting criminal activity the administration fabricated their now famous 90 percent lie, claiming that 90 percent of all firearms used by the Mexican drug cartels came from domestic gun shops and gun shows. However the real numbers show something quite different.
Mexican authorities have already confiscated 305,424 firearms from the drug cartels, of those only about 6000 have been successfully traced, and of those only 5,114 were traced to American sources. I guess it’s hard to manufacture a crisis that would justify implementation of Obama’s extreme anti-gun agenda when only 1.7 percent of all the firearms in the hands of the Mexican drug cartels actually originated from the United States.
The Obama administration knows it’s always better to wait for an opportunistic crisis to push his radical agenda for America, or if one’s not handy to manufacture one. And what does it matter when this inevitably costs the lives of a few Border Patrol Agents, after all so long as helps promote the agenda.
The only question remains, how much did Barack Obama know and when did he know it…
