Were Massive Benghazi Cover-ups and Lies Really About Hiding Fast and Furious “Jihad Edition”?

In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-walking on a massive scale. The effect has been to equip America’s enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies as well. That would explain his administration’s desperate and now failing bid to mislead the voters through the serial deflections of Benghazigate.

It appears Barack Obama has been supplying military grade weapons to al Qaeda.

We all know about Barack Obama’s Operation Gunwalker AKA Fast and Furious and the resulting slaughter of over 300 innocent Mexican citizens, as well as the murders of border agents Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata. I’ve long contended that both Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder should spend the rest of their lives in prison for their parts in facilitating these mass murders.

The mass slaughters in Mexico by drug lords, equipped with automatic weapons supplied by the Obama regime, may be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the evils Barack Obama has visited on other nations. [Never mind the great evils Americans have been subjected to by this devil.]

Some of the wonderful folks Obama’s Fast and Furious equipped with high powered automatic weapons. Youths like these slaughtered over 300 innocent Mexican citizens and two U.S. Border Agents.

It’s been rumored, since the attacks on Benghazi, that Obama sent Ambassador Steven to Libya to help round up guns illegally sent to arm the anti-Gadhafi Muslim savages. Savage Muslim groups that ended up with American weapons, supplied by the Obama regime, include al Qaeda, according to reports.

On October 17, Larry Sinclair reported: [emphasis mine]

AMB Chris Stevens was NOT surprised by his killers in Benghazi, Libya as has been portrayed thus far. According to sources in the State Department Chris Stevens was in Benghazi, Libya at the specific instruction of the Obama White House to recover weapons that the U.S. supplied to Libya rebels in the over throw of Gaddafi. These sources who work in the State Department and the Obama White House say that Barack Obama was directly involved in negotiations with Libyan Rebels in an effort to recover weapons that the U.S. supplied them. Sources say that the arrangements were made between Barack Obama direct talks and that the White House directly arranged for AMB Stevens to travel to Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012 and it was by direction of Barack Obama that Stevens was to meet with the very individuals who tortured, raped and murdered him.

These same sources state that the YouTube video which was put out by the White House and was reported by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as being responsible for the Benghazi attack; had been taken by the Obama administration even before the September 11, 2012 murders for the specific intent to blame it in the event the Obama arranged weapons recovery went awry.

We can continue to play the word games all we want over who denied the request for additional security; or when did Obama or Clinton know that the Benghazi Consulate was “attacked,” but to do so is not going to bring about the truth. The truth is clear:

1. Barack Obama personally and directly arranged for AMB Chris Stevens to travel to Benghazi, Libya for the express purpose of meeting with individuals who Barack Obama directly negotiated with in an effort to recover US Supplied weapons.

2. AMB Chris Stevens was not ambushed because of a leak in the Libyan security as is being claimed. Chris Stevens where-a-bouts in Benghazi were determined and relayed by the Obama White House in their arranging this meeting in the first place.

3. Hillary Clinton knows that AMB Stevens was sent to Benghazi on the express direction of Barack Obama and she knew the anti-Islam YouTube video had already been picked to be used as a diversion if the weapons recovery failed.

Read a lot more here.

On Monday, before we learned that Barack Obama, Leon Panetta,and as many as 400 members of the Obama regime knew about the attack on Benghazi, and did absolutely nothing for seven hours, Frank Gaffney put together this report from various sources that tends to confirm what Sinclair reports, that Ambassador Stevens was on a mission tracking weapons in what amounts to Fast and Furious Jihad Edition.

This entire fiasco, the slaughter of four Americans, and the massive lies from the White House, was all about covering up Obama’s illegal gun running to Libya. And the fact Obama supplied weapons to al Qaeda. Us older cats remember democrats wanted to hang Reagan, literally, for a hell of a lot less during the Iran-Contra episode.

From the Washington Times:

Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting — notably by Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Aaron Klein at WND.com and Clare Lopez at RadicalIslam.org — and information developed by congressional investigators, the mystery is beginning to unravel with regard to what happened that night and the reason for the subsequent, clumsy official cover-up now known as Benghazigate.

The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

Once Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown, Stevens was appointed ambassador to the new Libya run by Mr. Belhadj and his friends. Not surprisingly, one of the most important priorities for someone in that position would be to try to find and secure the immense amount of armaments that had been cached by the dictator around the country and systematically looted during and after the revolution.

One of the places in Libya most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Stevens was there — on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates — for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria. As in Libya, the insurgents are known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj.

Fox News has chronicled how the Al Entisar, a Libyan-flagged vessel carrying 400 tons of cargo, docked on Sept. 6 in the Turkish port of Iskenderun. It reportedly supplied both humanitarian assistance and arms — including deadly SA-7 man-portable surface-to-air missiles — apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria.

What cries out for further investigation — and debate in the remaining days of this presidential election — is whether this shipment was part of a larger covert Obama effort to transfer weapons to our enemies that could make the Iran-Contra scandal, to say nothing of Operation Fast and Furious, pale by comparison.

Investigative journalist Aaron Klein has reported that the “consulate in Benghazi” actually was no such thing. He observes that although administration officials have done nothing to correct that oft-repeated characterization of the facility where the murderous attack on Stevens and his colleagues was launched, they call it a “mission.” What Mr. Klein describes as a “shabby, nondescript building” that lacked any “major public security presence” was, according to an unnamed Middle Eastern security official, “routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate with the Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments on supporting the insurgencies in the Middle East, most prominently the rebels opposing Assad’s regime in Syria.

We know that Stevens‘ last official act was to hold such a meeting with an unidentified “Turkish diplomat.” Presumably, the conversation involved additional arms shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. It also may have involved getting more jihadi fighters there. After all, Mr. Klein reported last month that, according to sources in Egyptian security, our ambassador was playing a “central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

It gets worse. Last week, Center for Security Policy senior fellow and former career CIA officer Clare Lopez observed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the so-called “consulate” whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure whether they housed — and were known by the local jihadis to house — arms, perhaps administered by the two former Navy SEALs killed along with Stevens.

What we do know is that the New York Times — one of the most slavishly pro-Obama publications in the country — reported in an Oct. 14 article, “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.

More here.

This is incredible. If someone told me just four short years ago that an American president was capable of such evils as Obama has committed, I would have called them crazy. We’ve had bad presidents in our history. Seemingly more bad than good, in fact, but we have never had such a purely evil man occupy the White House.

Fast and Furious was a crime against humanity. The Obama regime handed out thousands of high powered automatic weapons to Mexican drug lords, with absolutely no attempt to track these weapons. It’s been said this was all in a coordinated, and cynical, attempt to assault America’s Second Amendment, by falsely claiming American guns were ending up in Mexico, because of our gun laws.

Communist democrats have been long dreamed of taking away American’s guns but none have been so bold as to attempt an international conspiracy, nor have their attempts to usurp American’s God given rights resulted in the mass slaughter of the citizens of another sovereign nation.

As I’ve noted before, as Fast and Furious was still on going, the corrupt America media carried the water for the regime by repeating it’s lies, and Mexican President Felipe Calderón went along with the Obama regime’s diabolical plan. President Calderón was even allowed to speak before Congress and spew the same lies, which were again reported by our corrupt media as fact.

Now we have the attacks and resulting lies and cover-ups concerning Benghazi, which happened in the course of yet ANOTHER cover-up! All of this was done to cover up the fact Barack Obama has been supplying military weapons, including SAMS [surface-to-air missiles] to savage Muslim terrorists, including al Qaeda. It’s highly likely the very same surface-to-air missiles the Obama regime handed to al Qaeda terrorists were used in the Benghazi attacks.

At what point do Americans start to contemplate the fact Obama and many other members of the regime are guilty of treason? They are most definitely guilty of crimes against humanity. Fast and Furious Mexico should land many regime members, including Barack Obama and Eric Holder in prison for the rest of their natural lives. I don’t even know what additional punishment Obama and his evil crew deserve for Benghazi.

If I were Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or any member of Congress I’d be demanding Obama’s immediate resignation pending full criminal investigations. I’d demand the resignations of any and all involved, also pending investigations.

Barack Obama doesn’t deserve to be allowed to stand for re-election at this point. He does deserve to face the full force of the law.

I wonder if the Nobel Committee has called asking for that Peace Prize back yet?

Border Patrol Agent Murdered on Arizona Border This Morning Near Station Named After Brian Terry

Agent Nicholas Ivie, 30, was killed early this morning while he and two other agents responded to an alerted ground sensor outside Bisbee in a remote area frequented by cross-border drug smugglers. A second agent – who has not yet been identified – was injured in the shooting but has been released from the hospital.

Excepted from a statement by Governor Jan Brewer, on Facebook.

By Gary P Jackson

One border patrol agent, Nicolas Ivie, was murdered and another wounded in a shootout this morning near a border patrol station named after murdered agent Brian Terry, who was a victim of Barack Obama and Eric Holder’s Fast & Furious fiasco.

This is a tragedy that was totally preventable.

Border Agent Brian Terry

From USA Today:

A Border Patrol agent was killed while patrolling on horseback near the Arizona patrol station named after Brian Terry, another agent killed on duty in 2010

Federal and state authorities launched a widespread manhunt along a remote part of the Arizona-Mexico border for three to four suspects in a shooting that left one Border Patrol agent dead and another wounded.

Dozens of investigators in helicopters and on horseback were searching an area as large as 20 miles for the suspects who allegedly opened fire on the agents when they approached to check on a tripped ground sensor.

The Border Patrol identified the slain agent as Nicolas Ivie, 30.

It was basically an ambush,” said Cochise County Sheriff’s Department Commander Marc Denney, whose agency is assisting the FBI in the search and investigation.

Denney said no weapons have been recovered. It was also unclear whether the suspects were involved in human smuggling or drug trafficking through a rocky corridor, about five miles from the Mexican border.

Denney said it was possible the suspects fled into Mexico following the shooting.

They had a little bit of a jump on us,” he said. “It is very rocky terrain. We’re hoping that they hunkered down somewhere close by so that we have an opportunity to find them.

Gov. Jan Brewer issued a statement blasting the federal government for failing to secure the border.

What happens next has become all-too-familiar in Arizona,” the statement says. “Flags will be lowered in honor of the slain agent. Elected officials will vow to find those responsible. Arizonans and Americans will grieve, and they should. But this ought not only be a day of tears. There should be anger, too. Righteous anger – at the kind of evil that causes sorrow this deep, and at the federal failure and political stalemate that has left our border unsecured and our Border Patrol in harm’s way.

The shooting occurred shortly before 2 a.m., when three agents on horseback were dispatched to an area near Naco after the ground sensor had been activated, said George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council an association of 17,000 agents and staffers.

McCubbin said one of the agents was killed, another wounded in the ankle and buttocks and third escaped without injury. The wounded agent, McCubbin said, was recovering at a local hospital. McCubbin said the agents were assigned to the Border Patrol station re-named just two weeks ago in honor of Agent Brian Terry.

Terry was slain in the same general area in December 2010, an incident that triggered congressional and Justice Department inquiries into a botched gun trafficking operation which allowed 2,000 firearms to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartel enforcers and other criminals. Two guns from that operation, known as Fast and Furious, were found at the scene of Terry’s murder. But the weapon used to kill Terry has not yet been identified.

McCubbin said early reports of Tuesday’s incident did not indicate that weapons were recovered or that suspects had been arrested.

Unless guns are recovered, any suggestion that this incident is somehow linked to Fast and Furious is total speculation,” McCubbin said. “But being that this occurred in the same general area brings back a lot of sad memories.

The Brian Terry Station, formerly called the Naco Station, is located in Bisbee, in southeast Arizona about 210 miles from Phoenix.

Tuesday’s shootings came two weeks after the release of a federal inquiry into Fast and Furious, an inquiry prompted by Terry’s 2010 murder.

As recently as last month, federal investigators expressed deep concern that 1,300 of the 2,000 weapons— many of them Ak-47 assault rifles — had not been recovered.

Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, who helped launch the investigation into the flawed gun trafficking operation, said there is “no way to know at this point how the agent was killed” Tuesday.

But because of Operation Fast and Furious, we’ll wonder for years if the guns used in any killing along the border were part of an ill-advised gunwalking strategy sanctioned by the federal government. It’s a sad commentary.

Terry was the last Border Patrol agent killed by gunfire, but four others have died since then in traffic accidents, showing how treacherous the job and the terrain can be.

Agents Eduardo Rojas and Hector Clark were killed in May 2011, when they were tracking a group of illegal immigrants and their vehicle was struck by a freight train near Gila Bend, Ariz., according to the Officer Down Memorial Page, a web site that tracks law enforcement deaths around the country.

Another agent was killed in a crash in July while patrolling near the border on an all-terrain vehicle near Fort Hancock, Texas, according to Officer Down website. A fourth was killed in July while assisting a disabled motorist on U.S. 90 near Cline, Texas.

More here, with video.

Governor Brewer has it right, while we mourn, we also must get angry. Even if the gun used to murder Agent Ivie wasn’t from Obama’s Fast & Furious, it’s Obama’s laxed border security, and coddling of illegal aliens that facilitated these murders and all of the violence along our southern border.

We must demand our next President secure the border and do something about forcing the illegals to leave our country. There is a real war going on all around our border, and the Obama regime is doing nothing to stop the violence.

From Senator John McCain:

Early this morning, agents from the U.S. Border Patrol were involved in a shooting near Naco, Arizona. Initial reports indicate that one agent was killed and another seriously injured.

While the investigation is still in its early stages, today’s events are a tragic reminder of the threats that Border Patrol agents face every day in the line of duty. Our thoughts and prayers are with these agents, their families, and all those in the Border Patrol community.

Once again, thoughts and prayers are certainly in order, but we must demand action. We need to put troops on our border with realistic rules of engagement, that will not only stop illegals from entering our country, but put an end to the violence that has been terrorizing border states for years.

Anything less is totally unacceptable.

But TO HELL With Brian Terry and the Hundreds of Innocent Dead Mexicans!

By Gary P Jackson

In the wake of the mass murders facilitated by President Barack Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder, we’ve seen the democrats take extraordinary measures to deflect attention away from these crimes against humanity.

What is the worst presidential scandal in U S history, has been politicized by the democrats, hoping to muddy the waters. You have classless jackasses like Obama super-donor Bill Maher saying things like “Republicans don’t care about dead Mexicans.” And then there is Juan Williams, who when confronted by the panel on The Five about murdered border patrol agent Brian Terry, said “Hey, people die.”:

The Right Scoop posted the transcript:

WILLIAMS: What do you think the government shouldn’t have any secret? You can’t have a private conversation in the White House now about politics?

BOLLING: We gotta go – NO, not when someone’s dead Juan! Not when three hundred Mexicans…

WILLIAMS: We know how the guy died!

BOLLING: …are dead at the hands of the same guns.

WILLIAMS: Hey people die in war! People died…

BOLLING: Don’t you care about the three hundred Mexicans that died from the guns the guns that were traced back to Fast and Furious?

WILLIAMS: I care about human life. But I’m telling you people die. And you know what? We know the facts of Fast and Furious. We know how he died!

Then you have House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who lead a walkout of democrats, during the vote to hold Eric Holder both civilly and criminally in contempt of Congress.

Pelosi, couldn’t even bring herself to say agent Brian Terry’s name correctly, even with notes in hand:

The democrats have proven they don’t give a damn about Brian Terry or Jaime Zapata, an ICE agent who may also have been murdered by the guns the Obama regime put in the hands of narco-terrorists. They most certainly don’t give a damn about the hundreds of dead Mexicans.

Murdered Border Agent Brian Terry

Murdered ICE Agent Jaime Zapata

You can imagine how I felt when our friend Ray sent us the following article. While the democrats can’t be bothered by the mass murder of hundreds of innocent Mexicans, or the capital murder of two federal agents, they have written a letter demanding an investigation into the death of an illegal alien.

Anastasio Hernández-Rojas was killed while fighting border agents who were in the process of deporting him after he illegally entered the United States.

From Yahoo News:

Sixteen members of Congress are calling for an investigation into the death of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas after a PBS documentary aired last month that raised questions about just how involved the Border Patrol was in the illegal immigrant’s killing.

The letters sent yesterday to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, Attorney General Eric Holder and the Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General ask the federal government to take another look and claim that the Department of Justice has been taking too long to handle the case.

Hernandez Rojas was allegedly tased and beaten to death by U.S. Border Patrol agents two years ago after a fight broke out as he was being returned to the border.

The agency has defended the use of force by its agents, maintaining that Hernandez Rojas’ behavior was “combative” enough to necessitate the use of batons and the stun gun, the Huffington Post reported.

But footage from the PBS documentary claims that Hernandez Rojas was surrounded by more than a dozen agents, hogtied and pleading for help before he was tased.

Luz Rojas, the mother of the Mexican native, has been in the U.S. this week, asking officials to investigate further into the incident.

Advocacy groups including Presente.org and their supporters have gathered in eight cities across the U.S. protesting what they say is the government’s egregious lack of action two years after the incident, according to the Huffington Post.

The disturbing footage and eye-witness accounts that aired on PBS raise serious questions about the Border Patrol’s role in the death of Anastasio Hernandez Rojas and after two years, we owe it to his family to finally provide some definitive answers,” Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), said in a news release.

Congresswoman Roybal-Allard was one of those who walked out as the House voted to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt.

Reading the Yahoo article it sounds like a lovable Hernández-Rojas was murdered by rogue agents, but the New Your Times, of all places, has a little more information. It seems Hernández-Rojas attacked the agents and they were trying to subdue him: [emphasis mine]

San Diego Police Investigate the Death of a Mexican Man Resisting Deportation

LOS ANGELES — The San Diego police are investigating the death of a Mexican man who was struck with a baton and shocked with a stun gun by federal officers as he resisted being deported. The Mexican government and a human rights group condemned the death, which comes after Mexico has condemned Arizona’s tough new immigration enforcement law.

The police said Anastacio Hernández-Rojas, 32, was struck and stunned by several officers from the Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection on Saturday as they were trying to subdue him.

He had been detained by the Border Patrol on Friday east of San Diego after he crossed into the United States from Mexico with his brother. He was taken to a Border Patrol station and, as is customary with Mexican nationals without a criminal record, signed papers agreeing to be quickly deported without a hearing.

He was taken in a van to the San Ysidro border crossing, 15 miles south of downtown San Diego, where officers planned to walk him to a gate and release him to Mexican immigration authorities.

But as they removed his handcuffs about 25 feet from the gate, Mr. Hernández-Rojas began fighting with officers, said Capt. Jim Collins of the San Diego Police Department, which is investigating the case under an agreement it has with Customs and Border Protection for deaths involving officers.

One officer struck him with a baton, and another fired a Taser, Captain Collins said.

Shortly afterward, the officers discovered that Mr. Hernández-Rojas was not breathing, administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation and called for an ambulance. He was taken to a local hospital and died after a short time on life support, Captain Collins said.

Customs and Border Protection released a statement saying the man “became combative,” leading officers to use the Taser to “subdue the individual and maintain officer safety.” The agency, which is also investigating the death, declined to comment further.

The San Diego medical examiner is investigating the cause of death. It was not known if Mr. Hernández-Rojas had underlying medical problems, but an autopsy will determine that, Captain Collins said.

Read more here.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT saying this incident shouldn’t be investigated, and if the agents are found to have done something wrong, they should be punished. But let’s look at this from the officers prospective. The border with Mexico is a dangerous place. Narco-terrorists regularly fire on American agents. American agents have been killed.

The number of dangerous criminals, with or without “records,” who sneak across the border is high.

The regular cop on the street in Anytown, USA has to be on his toes, even when making a traffic stop, because you never know who is behind the wheel. For border agents, it’s even more dangerous. They are dealing with criminals who have already broken the law, many who feel they have nothing to lose. The brave men and women who protect our borders put their lives on the live every single day.

In the case of Hernández-Rojas, you have someone who signed papers agreeing to be deported, rather than go to jail. I would imagine the officers felt this was a routine deal, until Hernández-Rojas attacked them. When someone attacks not one, but a group of armed police officers, you gotta figure they are crazy, desperate, and dangerous. The agents were lucky none of them were injured.

But that’s not the point of this article. The point is, the democrat party and the liberal media, is more concerned with the unfortunate death of a criminal who attacked law enforcement officials, than the murder of hundreds of innocent Mexicans, and two of our finest and bravest.

It’s simply maddening. But protecting our lawless President and his equally lawless Attorney General, is more important to democrats than the lives of innocent people.

Contempt

By Gary P Jackson

For the first time in our nation’s history a sitting Attorney General has been held in contempt of Congress.

The vote was 255-67 as many democrats chose to run and hide rather than go on the record.

The Congressional Black Caucus had pulled the race card, of course, but clouded the issue saying:

Contempt power should be used sparingly, carefully and only in the most egregious situations,” said a letter from the 42-member Congressional Black Caucus to colleagues. “The Republican leadership has articulated no legislative purpose for pursuing this course of action. For these reasons, we cannot and will not participate in a vote to hold the attorney general in contempt.”

Let me get this straight. We got hundreds of dead Mexicans and one, possible two dead federal agents, and the CBC doesn’t consider this a “most egregious situation“? I don’t even have the words ….

These investigations and hearings have been going on for 18 months. The entire time Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama regime have been doing everything in their powers not to comply.

This evil regime has facilitated mass murder in Mexico and capital murder at home. President Obama has claimed “executive privilege” in order to keep Congress from finding out that he is up to his eyeballs in this murderous scheme.

Being found in contempt is nothing compared to what needs to happen to both Holder and Obama. Both need to be indicted, tried, and convicted for the murder of each and every innocent dead Mexican. And then indicted, tried, and convicted for the capital murder of Brian Terry. [and any other federal agent who is killed as a result of fast & Furious.

Here Darrell Issa hammers John Dingle who shamelessly claims to represent Brian Terry, the murdered border agent:

Anthony Martin: New Evidence: Hillary Clinton one of the Masterminds Behind Fast and Furious

By Gary P Jackson

This makes perfect sense. Hillary Clinton has been a gun-grabber for decades, and as Secretary of State has worked with the UN on plans that would undermine the 2nd Amendment. It’s why I always burst out laughing when people claim Hillary would have made a better president than Obama. Both of these Saul Alinsky communists are cut from the same cloth. Clinton is just better at hiding it.

Anthony Martin has new evidence that shows Hillary was in on this from the start:

Last week it was reported that the State Department and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were deeply involved in the scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious, or Project Gunwalker. Today, however, new evidence has surfaced indicating that not only was Hillary deeply involved in the scandal but was one of the masterminds behind it.

According to investigative citizen journalist Mike Vanderboegh, sources close to the development of the Gunwalker scheme state that early on, Hillary and her trusted associated at State, Andrew J. Shapiro, devised at least part of the framework of what would later become Operation Fast and Furious. It was Shapiro who first described the details of the proposed scheme early in 2009 just after the Obama Administration took office.

Vanderboegh relates the following:

My sources say that as Hillary’s trusted subordinate, it was Shapiro who first described to the Secretary of State the details of what has become the Gunwalker Scandal.

The precise extent to which Hillary Clinton’s knowledge of, and responsibility for, the Gunwalker Plot, lies within the memories of these two men, Shapiro and Steinberg, sources say.

The sources also express dismay that the Issa committee is apparently restricting itself to the Department of Justice and not venturing further afield. The House Foreign Affairs Committee, they say, needs to summon these two men and their subordinates — especially at the Mexico Desk at State — and question them under oath as to what Hillary Clinton knew about the origins of the Gunwalker Scandal and when she knew it.

There is one other thing those sources agree upon. The CIA, they say, knows “everything” about the “Mexican hat dance” that became the Gunwalker Scandal.

The ‘Steinberg‘ mentioned in the quote above is Hillary Clinton’s former Deputy Secretary of State, who was appointed directly by Barack Obama and was considered from the start to be an ‘Obama man‘ whose objective was to carry out the wishes of the President in the State Department.

Hillary had said of Steinberg,

Clinton said Steinberg had been a “fixture” at meetings with the National Security Council (NSC) and frequently represented the US State Department at the White House.

That statement is key. Hillary herself stayed out of all meetings dealing with strategy concerning the euphemism the Administration used to designate Gunwalker, ‘strategy meetings on Mexico and the problem of drug and gun trafficking.

Hillary’s absence would give the impression that she had no connection to the scheme while making sure that her views were represented by Steinberg and Shapiro, both of whom were fully complicit with the details that developed concerning how to pad statistics on U.S. guns in Mexico.

According to sources, Hillary was obsessed with gun statistics that would prove that ‘90% of the firearms used by Mexican criminals come from the United States.‘ As previouly reported, that meme, repeated incessantly by Democratic Senators, Barack Obama, certan members of the ATF, Janet Napolitano, and Hillary Clinton was patently and blatantly false. The fact that they all knew it was false is borne out by the lengths to which each of the above named co-conspirators went to attempt to ‘prove‘ that the 90% figure was true.

Again, Vanderboegh relates the following:

My sources say that this battle of the “statistics” was taken very seriously by all players — the White House, State and Justice. Yet, WHY was this game of statistics so important to the players?

If some weapons from the American civilian market were making it to Mexico into the hand of drug gang killers that was bad enough. What was the importance of insisting that it was 90 percent, 80 percent, or finally 70 percent? Would such statistics make any difference to the law enforcement tactics necessary to curtail them?

No.

This statistics mania is similar to the focus on “body counts” in Vietnam. Yet if Vietnam body counts were supposed to be a measure of how we were winning that war, the focus on the 90 percent meme was certainly not designed to be a measure of how we were winning the war against arming the cartels, but rather by what overwhelming standard we were LOSING.

Why?

Recall what the whistleblower ATF agents told us right after this scandal broke in the wake of the death of Brian Terry: “ATF source confirms ‘walking’ guns to Mexico to ‘pad’ statistics.

Thus, from the beginning the scheme was to pad statistics on U.S. guns in Mexico in order to be in a strengthened position to call for gun bans and strict gun control at a time when it was politically unpopular. Further, the scheme would involve a made-up statistic, out of thin air–90%–which then had to be proved by using civilian gun retailers along the southern border as unsuspecting pawns to walk U.S. guns into Mexico by ATF agents, straw purchasers, and others with connections to Mexican drug cartels.

And the evidence points to the fact that Hillary Clinton was one of the original Administration officials who was ‘in the loop‘ on the scheme from the very beginning.

Martin has been all over this scandal. Read more here.

If this is indeed true, add Hillary’s name to the list, that includes Obama and Holder, of people who MUST spend the rest of their lives in prison for mass murder in Mexico, and capital murder here at home. Anything less is unacceptable.

Sorry Liberals: Bush Era “Operation Wide Receiver” Is NOTHING Like The Obama Regime’s Fast and Furious

By Gary P Jackson

The Obama regime’s most enduring strategy seems to be: “If all else fails, blame it on Bush.”

The latest lie coming from the regime, and all of it’s sycophants in the corrupt media is Operation Gunwalker [Fast & Furious] was started under the Bush administration, and the benevolent Dear Leader, Barack Obama, ended it.

Bullshit!

Not only did President Obama and Attorney General Holder cook this whole thing up, they used stimulus dollars, that were supposedly to be used for job creation, to fund this operation!

The Bush program the radicals are pointing to was called Operation Wide Receiver. This was a controlled program with ATF PHYSICALLY tracking each and every weapon. The Obama regime’s murderous program merely recorded serial numbers.

Townhall’s Guy Benson points out the lies from the regime, as well as the differences between the two programs:

Throughout today’s House Oversight Committee hearings on possible contempt charges for Attorney General Eric Holder, Democrat members repeatedly asserted and intimated that the deadly gun-running program had originated under the previous administration. 

Their clear aim was to muddy the waters on who is ultimately culpable for this blood-stained travesty, to suggest that Republicans are engaged in a shameless partisan witch hunt, and to feed the pliant mainstream media a handy alternate narrative as they begin to cover the controversy. Katie documented why this variant of “Blame Bush!” isn’t remotely applicable to Fast & Furious in her book, and former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy exposed and distilled the Left’s deliberate obtuseness on this subject last November:
 

The key to [Democrats’] strategy is conflating two very different programs: Operation Fast & Furious and a Bush era ATF initiative known as “Operation Wide Receiver. In the questions from Judiciary Committee Democrats (principally, Senators Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer — there may have been others but, again, I didn’t see the entire hearing), it emerged that Wide Receiver began in 2006, when Alberto Gonzales was the Bush administration attorney general…Wide Receiver actually involved not gun-walking but controlled delivery. Unlike gun-walking, which seems (for good reason) to have been unheard of until Fast & Furious, controlled delivery is a very common law enforcement tactic. Basically, the agents know the bad guys have negotiated a deal to acquire some commodity that is either illegal itself (e.g., heroin, child porn) or illegal for them to have/use (e.g., guns, corporate secrets).

The agents allow the transfer to happen under circumstances where they are in control — i.e., they are on the scene conducting surveillance of the transfer, and sometimes even participating undercover in the transfer. As soon as the transfer takes place, they can descend on the suspects, make arrests, and seize the commodity in question — all of which makes for powerful evidence of guilt.  Senator Schumer’s drawing of an equivalence between “tracing” in a controlled-delivery situation and “tracing” in Fast & Furious is laughable. In a controlled delivery firearms case, guns are traced in the sense that agents closely and physically follow them — they don’t just note the serial numbers or other identifying markers. The agents are thus able to trace the precise path of the guns from, say, American dealers to straw purchasers to Mexican buyers.

To the contrary, Fast & Furious involved uncontrolled deliveries — of thousands of weapons. It was an utterly heedless program in which the feds allowed these guns to be sold to straw purchasers — often leaning on reluctant gun dealers to make the sales. The straw purchasers were not followed by close physical surveillance; they were freely permitted to bulk transfer the guns to, among others, Mexican drug gangs and other violent criminals — with no agents on hand to swoop in, make arrests, and grab the firearms. The inevitable result of this was that the guns have been used (and will continue to be used) in many crimes, including the murder of Brian Terry, a U.S. border patrol agent. In sum, the Fast & Furious idea of “trace” is that, after violent crimes occur in Mexico, we can trace any guns the Mexican police are lucky enough to seize back to the sales to U.S. straw purchasers … who should never have been allowed to transfer them (or even buy them) in the first place. That is not law enforcement; that is abetting a criminal rampage.

Another crucial distinction: The Bush-era gun tracing program known as “Wide Receiver” was executed in concert with the Mexican government, which was fully involved at every step of the process.  “Fast & Furious” was conceived and launched without the knowledge of the Mexican government — and its citizens have paid a very dear price as a result.  Even Holder himself has acknowledged that Fast & Furious was entirely an Obama-era endeavor:

Read more here.

It should be fully understood, that unlike the Bush program, the Obama regime embarked on this criminal enterprise without notifying the Mexican government. The regime made absolutely no attempt to track any of these guns from the point of sale to the violent criminals whose hands they ended up in.

There’s a reason for this, something we’ve mentioned before. This wasn’t about tracking guns and arresting criminals. This was about putting American guns in the hands of Mexican criminals, and allowing mass murders to occur, so the regime could use these tragic events as a way to create a climate in America that would allow them to take guns away from law abiding American citizens.

Marxists like Obama and Holder [and liberals in general] have long dreamed about disarming the American people. They understand the only way to fully enslave a people is to disarm them.

Not only did the regime anticipate the mass murders that have occurred, it needed them to happen for their dastardly plan to work. They needed people to die so they could sell their gun grabbing plan to the public.

We have a regime that has facilitated mass murder in Mexico and Capital murder here in America, as American border patrol agents have been slaughtered by guns Obama and Holder put in the hands of criminals.

Obama and Holder facilitated mass murder. Until they have been indicted and convicted of capital murder, justice will continue to be denied.

It’s disgraceful and disgusting to see the regime, and the Democrat Industrial Media Complex, blame President Bush for this disaster. The program the Bush administration put together was successful and no innocent people were slaughtered.

We are living under the most evil of regimes. Obama and his crew of thugs must be defeated. Liberalism itself must be defeated. It’s a diseased ideology that subscribes to the idea that the ends justify the means.

Barack Obama is a student of Communist Saul Alinsky [as is Hillary Clinton, BTW] who had this to say about the end justifying the means, in his book Rules for Radicals:

The end is what you want, the means is how you get it. Whenever we think about social change, the question of means and ends arises. The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. … The real arena is corrupt and bloody.

The means-and-ends moralists, constantly obsessed with the ethics of the means used by the Have-Nots against the Haves, should search themselves as to their real political position. In fact, they are passive — but real — allies of the Haves…. The most unethical of all means is the non-use of any means… The standards of judgment must be rooted in the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be…

The real arena is corrupt and bloody.” Alinsky was quite prophetic, as what the Obama regime has done is both corrupt and incredibly bloody.

This goes along with Rahm Emanuel’s infamous statement that no crisis should ever go to waste.

These are evil people guided by an evil ideology.

Eric Holder in 1995: We Must Brainwash People to Be Against Guns

By Gary P Jackson

For those that refuse to believe that Operation Gunwalker, better known as Fast & Furious was about subverting the 2nd Amendment and taking away American’s God given right to keep and bear arms, this video should cure that.

Last November I wrote a piece on Attorney General Eric Holder’s radical past, and some of the evil that he facilitated while working in the Clinton administration. With all the evidence against this threat to society, I still can’t believe he was confirmed by the Senate.

Holder and his bass are, and have always been, radical Marxists. All fascist regimes know the first thing you have to do in order to completely subdue a people, is to take way their weapons. This strategy is as old as civilization itself.

Our founders understood this, as King George of England attempted to disarm the American colonists, as signs of the coming Revolution grew. It’s why the right to bear arms is in the Constitution. It’s also why it’s listed second only to the rights of free speech and religious affiliation. More rights the Marxists would like to take away from you.

Breitbart.com uncovered this video of Holder in his full fascist glory. As you watch this video, never forget that President Obama and Holder created Fast & Furious knowing full well they were facilitating international mass murder. In fact, the only way Fast & Furious could meet their goal of stealing your 2nd Amendment rights was for the bodies to pile up.

Breitbart.com has uncovered video from 1995 of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder announcing a public campaign to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”

Holder was addressing the Woman’s National Democratic Club. In his remarks, broadcast by CSPAN 2, he explained that he intended to use anti-smoking campaigns as his model to “change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC” about guns.

What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes.

Holder added that he had asked advertising agencies in the nation’s capital to assist by making anti-gun ads rather than commercials “that make me buy things that I don’t really need.” He had also approached local newspapers and television stations, he said, asking them to devote prime space and time, respectively, to his anti-gun campaign.

Local political leaders and celebrities, Holder said, including Mayor Marion Barry and Jesse Jackson, had been asked to help. In addition, he reported, he had asked the local school board to make the anti-gun message a part of “every day, every school, and every level.

Despite strict gun control efforts, Washington, DC was and remains one of the nation’s most dangerous cities for gun violence, though crime has abated somewhat since the 1990s.

Holder went on to become Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration, and currently serves as Attorney General in the Obama Administration.

The video of Holder’s remarks was uncovered by Breitbart.com contributor Charles C. Johnson.

Pure evil. The right to bear arms is protected by the Constitution. As noted above, even through D.C. has some of the most strict anti-gun laws in the country, gun violence is some of the highest in the land.

Why is that?

It’s because bad guys will ALWAYS have guns, and when they know that chances are good their victims do not have a weapon, nothing stops them.

In places where government doesn’t trample on citizens’ rights, and most folks own guns, violent gun crime is rather low. Gee, I wonder why.

What Obama and Holder cooked up with Fast and Furious is pure evil. Justice will be denied until those two, as well as the others involved, are in prison.

Video Proof White House Press Secretary Jay Carney Lying About Fast and Furious

By Gary P Jackson

Courtesy of The Right Scoop, video proof the White House is lying about who knew what and when they new it.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney maintained several times yesterday that gun-running was not generated out of Washington DC and when A.G. Eric Holder found out about the tactic of gun-running, he stopped it. But this is simply not true. Deputy Attorney General David Ogden at a news conference in March of 2009 clearly associates A.G. Holder and the Obama administration with the tactic of gun-running.

Not only did mass murderers Barack Obama and Eric Holder “fortify” the Gunwalker program, they use stimulus funds to do it! Let me repeat that. President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder siphoned off funds that were to be used to get out economy back on track, to facilitate mass murder in Mexico and capital murder here at home.

You can watch the entire 2009 press conference on Cspan here.

Yesterday I called on our elected officials to get serious about this. Obama and Holder have committed mass murder for the most evil of reasons. They had planned to use this slaughter of innocents, by American guns, as a way to force gun control legislation on the people of America, violating our Second Amendment. Obama and Holder belong in prison. Justice demands it.

Breaking: Senator Orrin Hatch demands Eric Holder’s Resignation Over Fast and Furious

By Gary P Jackson

From the Daily Caller:

Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch has joined his congressional colleagues in demanding Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation in the wake of Operation Fast and Furious.

Hatch made the call during a Wednesday interview on former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s radio show. “Well if he doesn’t cooperate with the Congress on this Fast and Furious, where one of our agents was killed because of the stupidity of this administration, then he ought to step own,” Hatch said.

He’s basically a nice man, but by gosh he’s been so partisan in that job that I’m very concerned about him and tend to support Sen. Cornyn and others who think that he ought to retire.

Huckabee said he calls Holder by the nickname “Eric withholder” because “he seems to be withholding so much more information than he’s coming forth with.

Hatch becomes the fourth U.S. senator to demand Holder’s resignation over the scandal. Texas Republican Sen. John Cornyn demanded Holder’s resignation to the attorney general’s face during a Tuesday Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. Republican Sens. Jim DeMint, Johnny Isakson and James Inhofe did so beforehand.

Two sitting governors — Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Rick Perry of Texas — join those senators, as do 129 House members and presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney in pushing for Holder to step down.

Say what you will about Senator Hatch, but he is right and pointing out that it was the stupidity of the Obama regime that got all of these hundreds of people killed.

New American Future Fund Ad Exposes Fast and Furious For All to See

Eric Holder, along with Barack Obama are guilty of facilitating mass murder in Mexico and capital murder here in America.

By Gary P Jackson

Devastating video from American Future Fund puts the Fast and Furious scandal out there for all to see:

President Obama sanctioned this, and Eric Holder carried it out. These two, and everyone else involved, are guilty of facilitating mass murder in Mexico, and capital murder of a federal agent in the United States. All of them must be prosecuted to the highest extent of the law.

Sadly, Congressional leadership is far too timid and not treating this matter as serious as it is. This is the worst crime any administration has ever perpetrated. This makes Watergate look like a simple misunderstanding.

If an organization such as al Qaeda had put assault weapons in the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels, and hundred of Mexicans, as well as at least one American were killed, we’d call it an act of terror. But since it’s President Obama and Attorney General Holder, the Republican leadership wants to treat them with kid gloves!

Can you imagine how the democrats would be acting if a Republican President cause such a loss of life? They’d have America whipped up in a frenzy, marching in the streets, and demanding blood.

We don’t want, or need that, but Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and everyone involved in this conspiracy must be help accountable. And I don’t just mean they should lose their jobs. They have committed a heinous crime, and deserve the proper punishment.
