In the scandal ridden Obama Administration, not a week passes by that a new shocker is not added to the long list of misdeeds by this gangster administration with complete disregard for citizens' will or constitutionally established separation of powers.
The latest scandal - and the gravest so far - is the ATF's bungled (and mind bogglingly stupid) gun running sting operation code named Operation Fast and Furious. Several law enforcement agencies of the federal government, including the FBI, Justice Department, Department of Homeland Security, Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, got together to hatch a plan to sell guns to Mexican drug cartel members – at least one (and quite possibly two) of which was later used to murder a Border Patrol agent. As Canada Free Press reported last week, this is a scandal that is exponentially bigger than Watergate should it be tied directly to the President. Despite the Attorney General and the President's claims of ignorance, congressional Republicans have been digging hard and it seems they have hit paydirt.
This is a scandal involving murdered law enforcement officers, cover ups at the highest levels of the government, scapegoating whistle blowing low level operatives, witness tampering, and lies to the congress as well as the American people.
It was quite obvious from the beginning that such an operation could not be conducted without approval from the highest levels of the DOJ and, at least, the knowledge of the President.
Sure enough, Rep. Darrell Issa uncovered at least twelve high level DOJ officials who have been heavily involved with the operation. Further investigation also uncovered video evidence that not only Attorney General Eric Holder, but also the President knew about and presumably approved the foolhardy sting operation.
As bad as this is, the most outrageous part of this scandal is the apparent devious motive behind it: banning semi-automatic assault rifles in the U.S.
Obama made no secret of his desire to unleash war on the second amendment of the U.S. Constitution from the very beginning of his Administration. The opening the Administration needed was a 2008 report that 80% of the guns used by drug smugglers in Mexico were smuggled in to Mexico from the U.S.A. Using that report as an excuse, various agencies of the DOJ planned a sting operation, results of which would later be used to garner political support for just such a ban on sale of semi-auto assault weapons in the U.S. Sure enough, DOJ is "now requiring gun stores in Arizona, California, Texas and New Mexico to report individual purchases of multiple rifles of greater than .22 caliber to the ATF. To quality for special reporting, the rifles also have to have a detachable magazine and be semi-automatic".
The outrageous nature of this move in the light of the revelations that put the culpability surrounding this scandal squarely on the Administration is simply astonishing.
Any one of the Obama scandals under a Republican administration would have been treated by the media and the left in general as a reason to impeach the president - whether you are talking about Pigford, the DOJ Black Panther case, falsifying expert testimony in justifying the oil and gas drilling moratorium, wilfully ignoring the separation of powers by ignoring the congress and courts on multiple occasions from the unconstitutionality of Obamacare to DISCLOSE Act to DREAM Act to net neutrality, or any one of dozens of other scandals.
Can we expect the main stream media to publicize this outrageous scandal to the general public anytime before they are forced to by alternative media? I am willing to bet no!
Welcome to a new era - the era of the left wing media whores covering up for the Obama Administration!
