Obama ....Goebbels And The Big Lie

Well it seems we know who is advising the obama campaign or at least who provided its philosophy and that man is Joseph Goebbels who was Hitler's Propaganda Minister. It was Goebbels who is quoted thus ... " If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State. "... Well that seems to be the theory behind obama's campaign as once again they have been found to be somewhat lacking in the ability to discern the truth. If one reads the quote it strikes one that it seems to be a particularly apt description of not just the obama campaign but his administration.

Obama’s ‘Outsourcer’ Overreach

The president's campaign fails to back up its claims that Romney 'shipped jobs' overseas.
Bookmark and Share


Obama accuses Romney in a series of TV ads of being a “corporate raider” who “shipped jobs to China and Mexico,” asking if voters want to elect an “outsourcer in chief.” But some of the claims in the ads are untrue, and others are thinly supported.

Bain Capital, the venture capital firm founded by Romney in 1984, is the focus of the Obama campaign’s attacks. There is no question that Bain invested in some companies that helped other companies outsource work and that some of that work went overseas. That was the core business for Modus Media and SMTC Corp. — two outsource companies featured in a June 21 article in the Washington Post that has been the basis of recent Obama TV ads. Bain also invested in U.S.-based companies that sold goods manufactured here and abroad, and some of those companies closed U.S. facilities and eliminated U.S. jobs.

But after reviewing numerous corporate filings with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, contemporary news accounts, company histories and press releases, and the
evidence offered by both the Obama and Romney campaigns, we found no evidence to support the claim that Romney — while he was still running Bain Capital — shipped American jobs overseas.
  • One TV ad, called “Come and Go,” claims that Romney “shipped jobs to China and Mexico.” But two examples cited by the Obama campaign occurred after Romney left Bain. There’s no clear evidence that a third company shipped jobs to China under Romney.
  • A second ad called “Revealed” mocks Romney’s tough talk about cracking down on China’s trade practices by saying “all he’s ever done is send them our jobs” and citing the Washington Post article. But the newspaper article contained no examples of U.S. jobs being shipped to China while Romney was working at Bain.
  • The “Come and Go” ad casts Romney as a “corporate raider,” but that term, loaded with negative connotations, is simply inaccurate. Bain didn’t engage in hostile takeovers when Romney was at the helm.
  • That ad also repeats the claim that as governor of Massachusetts, Romney was “outsourcing state jobs to India.” But it wasn’t the state that outsourced contracts. Rather, Romney vetoed a measure that would have prevented the state from doing business with a state contractor that was locating state customer-service calls in India.

Nancy Polosi Finally Drains The Swamp.... Quick Lets Hide Congress

It seems that nancy polosi has finally kept her word to drain the swamp that is our Congress. Polosi outraged that the Republican led Congress voted to hold Atty General eric holder in criminal and civil contempt of Congress for the operation that has led to the deaths of 300 Mexican citizens and at least 1 American law enforcement officer and standing fore square with the Congressional Black Caucus....  ( * SNICKER * ) walked out of Congress as the vote was being held thus keeping her promise to drain the swamp. Now it has taken 6 years for her to achieve this noble goal and I think we should takes steps to insure that in a moment of weakness she doesn't backslide and return to Congress.

I have an idea that may work and would like your opinions. Back in the day, my mother after some spectacular act of stupid from myself or 1 of my 5 brothers used to threaten to move and not tell us where she was going. So I propose we move Congress and not tell nancy where it went. Some of you may be thinking that this could not possibly work as she would find out where Congress was and simply return. Perhaps, but if we move Congress to Iowa I am fairly certain she and most other democrats would have virtually no chance of ever finding it and if having discovered where it was would have any desire to travel to Iowa to rejoin Congress. Keep in mind, these are the same people who have told us they cannot figure out how to acquire the I.D. needed to vote. So to expect them to be able to master the skills needed to travel 1/2 way across this really really large nation to the state of Iowa and to do it without an I.D. is likely beyond their abilities.

Do Any Of These Obama Taxes Affect You

I thought obama said he would not raise taxes on the middle class ....I think his nose is growing ....HUGE.

Comprehensive List of Obama Tax Increases

Three years in office, twenty-one tax hikes

Since taking office three years ago, President Barack Obama has signed into law twenty-one new or higher taxes on the American people:
1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco:  On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack.  The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year.
2. Obamacare Individual Mandate Excise Tax (takes effect in Jan 2014): Starting in 2014, anyone not buying “qualifying” health insurance must pay an income surtax according to the higher of the following:

1 Adult 2 Adults 3+ Adults
2014 1% AGI/$95 1% AGI/$190 1% AGI/$285
2015 2% AGI/$325 2% AGI/$650 2% AGI/$975

3. Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax (takes effect Jan. 2014):  If an employer does not offer health coverage, and at least one employee qualifies for a health tax credit, the employer must pay an additional non-deductible tax of $2000 for all full-time employees.  Applies to all employers with 50 or more employees. If any employee actually receives coverage through the exchange, the penalty on the employer for that employee rises to $3000. If the employer requires a waiting period to enroll in coverage of 30-60 days, there is a $400 tax per employee ($600 if the period is 60 days or longer). Bill: PPACA; Page: 345-346
Combined score of individual and employer mandate tax penalty: $65 billion/10 years
4. Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income (Tax hike of $123 billion/takes effect Jan. 2013):  Creation of a new, 3.8 percent surtax on investment income earned in households making at least $250,000 ($200,000 single).  This would result in the following top tax rates on investment income: Bill: Reconciliation Act; Page: 87-93

*Other unearned income includes (for surtax purposes) gross income from interest, annuities, royalties, net rents, and passive income in partnerships and Subchapter-S corporations.  It does not include municipal bond interest or life insurance proceeds, since those do not add to gross income.  It does not include active trade or business income, fair market value sales of ownership in pass-through entities, or distributions from retirement plans.  The 3.8% surtax does not apply to non-resident aliens.
5. Obamacare Excise Tax on Comprehensive Health Insurance Plans (Tax hike of $32 bil/takes effect Jan. 2018): Starting in 2018, new 40 percent excise tax on “Cadillac” health insurance plans ($10,200 single/$27,500 family).  Higher threshold ($11,500 single/$29,450 family) for early retirees and high-risk professions.  CPI +1 percentage point indexed. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,941-1,956

Obamacare Flexible Spending Account Cap – aka “Special Needs Kids Tax” (Tax hike of $13 bil/takes effect Jan. 2013): Imposes cap on FSAs of $2500 (currently unlimited).  Indexed to inflation after 2013. There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children.  There are thousands of families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education.  Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs educationBill: PPACA; Page: 2,388-2,389

Kanjorski ....Another 70 Million Goes Poof ...Abound Solar To Declare Bankruptcy

If anyone here in the Valley was wondering what had happened to russell kanjorski after he made 9 million tax payers dollars disappear that his uncle paul kanjorski had arranged for Cornerstone Technologies, I have the answer. The young man wound up as V.P for marketing at Abound Solar which obama gave a 400 million secured loan to. Well bad news folks, young kanjorski left the firm not long before Abound announced that they would be laying off the majority of its work force and closing one of its plants. Today the other shoe fell, in a story at it was announced that Abound Solar would be declaring bankruptcy next week. The good news if there is any is that they were only into us for 70 million.

Solar Manufacturing: To Compete or Not To Compete

Next week, Abound Solar, a startup company that borrowed $70 million through the Department’s loan program, will close its doors and file for bankruptcy. Abound was an innovative manufacturer of next-generation, cadmium telluride thin-film photovoltaic modules that had developed and demonstrated a process for producing thin-film solar panels at a cost that was expected to be substantially less than traditional solar panels. When the cost of polysilicon was high, Abound’s technology offered the promise of a lower cost alternative that would be built here the United States.

UPDATE...Another Abound article from CBS news

Single Largest Tax Increase In The History Of The Planet Confirmed Today

 Well I of course was hoping that the Supremes would shoot this nasty piece of work down in its entirety. That didn't happen and that is just to damned bad but obama is now responsible for as the headline says the single largest tax increase in the history of the world. When first passed the CBO scored it to cost just a little less than 1 trillion but that was with just 6 years of pay outs and 10 years of revenue in . Just a few months ago with 3 more years added it came in at 1.76 trillion and it will probably break 2 trillion when all is said and done. I wonder who will be paying for all this...... its going to be fun to watch.

CBO: Obamacare to cost $1.76 trillion over 10 yrs

March 13, 2012
President Obama's national health care law will cost $1.76 trillion over a decade, according to a new projection released today by the Congressional Budget Office, rather than the $940 billion forecast when it was signed into law.
Democrats employed many accounting tricks when they were pushing through the national health care legislation, the most egregious of which was to delay full implementation of the law until 2014, so it would appear cheaper under the CBO's standard ten-year budget window and, at least on paper, meet Obama's pledge that the legislation would cost "around $900 billion over 10 years." When the final CBO score came out before passage, critics noted that the true 10 year cost would be far higher than advertised once projections accounted for full implementation.

Florida District Court Rules Against Holder.....State Will Be Allowed To Remove Non Citizens From Voter Rolls

Well this ruling is quite a blow to our Justice Department and to the democrat party. The state of Florida had discovered and removed 53,000 dead on their voter roles and suspect there are thousands of non citizens registered to vote and were attempting to remove them. The state had been asking since last year for access to the Federal governments Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements database in order to purge their voter roles. Not content with denying the state access to this data base the feds ( eric holder ) decided to sue the state to prevent them from removing non citizens from their roles. This leads one to ask if the dead and non citizens are no longer able to vote will this safely flip the state Republican. Most are aware of the close presidential elections of 2000 and 2004 in the state. What affect will removing a voting block which in the past has voted at 100 % or close to 100 % for democrats have on Novembers election.  Oddly it seems that even those voters who reliably voted Republican while alive have a come to Jesus moment after death and vote democrat.

Florida Judge Smacks Down Holder over Non-Citizens Voting

The Department of Justice tried to prevent Florida and its Governor, Rick Scott, from removing non-citizens from its voter rolls, asking for a restraining order and arguing that removing non-citizens would be a violation of the National Voter Registration Act. Today, a U.S. District Judge appointed by former President Bill Clinton denied the Department of Justice's request, according to the Miami Herald. Florida will now be able to rightfully remove non-citizens from its voter rolls.

Scott said in a statement that "the court made a common-sense decision consistent with what I’ve been saying all along: that irreparable harm will result if non-citizens are allowed to vote."
"Today’s ruling puts the burden on the federal government to provide Florida with access to the Department of Homeland Security’s citizenship database," Scott said. "We know from just a small sample that an alarming number of non-citizens are on the voter rolls and many of them have illegally voted in past elections."
Last year, Florida requested access to the Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements (SAVE) database the state could use to identify non-citizens who are registered to vote in the state, but the federal government has yet to grant Florida access to the database.

Yes Gracie Obama Did Use Fast And Furious To Enact Gun Control

You have to give him credit, obama will allow nothing to stop his agenda. He might tolerate a slow down but never a halt or a reversal ...never. I am going to post the entire article from CBS. I saw the story some time ago but lost track of it and I keep assuming that most other folks are keeping track of events as well as I am and often see no need to post an item. I know the reality is quite the opposite but sometimes the depth of ignorance of the average voter boggles the mind

Documents: ATF used "Fast and Furious" to make the case for gun regulations


Sharyl Attkisson

Documents obtained by CBS News show that the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) discussed using their covert operation "Fast and Furious" to argue for controversial new rules about gun sales.
PICTURES: ATF "Gunwalking" scandal timeline

In Fast and Furious, ATF secretly encouraged gun dealers to sell to suspected traffickers for Mexican drug cartels to go after the "big fish." But ATF whistleblowers told CBS News and Congress it was a dangerous practice called "gunwalking," and it put thousands of weapons on the street. Many were used in violent crimes in Mexico. Two were found at the murder scene of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.

ATF officials didn't intend to publicly disclose their own role in letting Mexican cartels obtain the weapons, but emails show they discussed using the sales, including sales encouraged by ATF, to justify a new gun regulation called "Demand Letter 3". That would require some U.S. gun shops to report the sale of multiple rifles or "long guns." Demand Letter 3 was so named because it would be the third ATF program demanding gun dealers report tracing information.

On July 14, 2010 after ATF headquarters in Washington D.C. received an update on Fast and Furious, ATF Field Ops Assistant Director Mark Chait emailed Bill Newell, ATF's Phoenix Special Agent in Charge of Fast and Furious:

"Bill - can you see if these guns were all purchased from the same (licensed gun dealer) and at one time. We are looking at anecdotal cases to support a demand letter on long gun multiple sales. Thanks."

More Fast and Furious coverage:
Memos contradict Holder on Fast and Furious
Agent: I was ordered to let guns "walk" into Mexico
Gunwalking scandal uncovered at ATF

On Jan. 4, 2011, as ATF prepared a press conference to announce arrests in Fast and Furious, Newell saw it as "(A)nother time to address Multiple Sale on Long Guns issue." And a day after the press conference, Chait emailed Newell: "Bill--well done yesterday... (I)n light of our request for Demand letter 3, this case could be a strong supporting factor if we can determine how many multiple sales of long guns occurred during the course of this case."

This revelation angers gun rights advocates. Larry Keane, a spokesman for National Shooting Sports Foundation, a gun industry trade group, calls the discussion of Fast and Furious to argue for Demand Letter 3 "disappointing and ironic." Keane says it's "deeply troubling" if sales made by gun dealers "voluntarily cooperating with ATF's flawed 'Operation Fast & Furious' were going to be used by some individuals within ATF to justify imposing a multiple sales reporting requirement for rifles."

The Gun Dealers' Quandary

Several gun dealers who cooperated with ATF told CBS News and Congressional investigators they only went through with suspicious sales because ATF asked them to.

Sometimes it was against the gun dealer's own best judgment.

Read the email

In April, 2010 a licensed gun dealer cooperating with ATF was increasingly concerned about selling so many guns. "We just want to make sure we are cooperating with ATF and that we are not viewed as selling to the bad guys," writes the gun dealer to ATF Phoenix officials, "(W)e were hoping to put together something like a letter of understanding to alleviate concerns of some type of recourse against us down the road for selling these items."

Read the email

ATF's group supervisor on Fast and Furious David Voth assures the gun dealer there's nothing to worry about. "We (ATF) are continually monitoring these suspects using a variety of investigative techniques which I cannot go into detail."

Two months later, the same gun dealer grew more agitated.

"I wanted to make sure that none of the firearms that were sold per our conversation with you and various ATF agents could or would ever end up south of the border or in the hands of the bad guys. I guess I am looking for a bit of reassurance that the guns are not getting south or in the wrong hands...I want to help ATF with its investigation but not at the risk of agents (sic) safety because I have some very close friends that are US Border Patrol agents in southern AZ as well as my concern for all the agents (sic) safety that protect our country."

"It's like ATF created or added to the problem so they could be the solution to it and pat themselves on the back," says one law enforcement source familiar with the facts. "It's a circular way of thinking."

The Justice Department and ATF declined to comment. ATF officials mentioned in this report did not respond to requests from CBS News to speak with them.

The "Demand Letter 3" Debate

The two sides in the gun debate have long clashed over whether gun dealers should have to report multiple rifle sales. On one side, ATF officials argue that a large number of semi-automatic, high-caliber rifles from the U.S. are being used by violent cartels in Mexico. They believe more reporting requirements would help ATF crack down. On the other side, gun rights advocates say that's unconstitutional, and would not make a difference in Mexican cartel crimes.

Two earlier Demand Letters were initiated in 2000 and affected a relatively small number of gun shops. Demand Letter 3 was to be much more sweeping, affecting 8,500 firearms dealers in four southwest border states: Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas. ATF chose those states because they "have a significant number of crime guns traced back to them from Mexico." The reporting requirements were to apply if a gun dealer sells two or more long guns to a single person within five business days, and only if the guns are semi-automatic, greater than .22 caliber and can be fitted with a detachable magazine.

On April 25, 2011, ATF announced plans to implement Demand Letter 3. The National Shooting Sports Foundation is suing the ATF to stop the new rules. It calls the regulation an illegal attempt to enforce a law Congress never passed. ATF counters that it has reasonably targeted guns used most often to "commit violent crimes in Mexico, especially by drug gangs."


Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, is investigating Fast and Furious, as well as the alleged use of the case to advance gun regulations. "There's plenty of evidence showing that this administration planned to use the tragedies of Fast and Furious as rationale to further their goals of a long gun reporting requirement. But, we've learned from our investigation that reporting multiple long gun sales would do nothing to stop the flow of firearms to known straw purchasers because many Federal Firearms Dealers are already voluntarily reporting suspicious transactions. It's pretty clear that the problem isn't lack of burdensome reporting requirements."

On July 12, 2011, Sen. Grassley and Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., wrote Attorney General Eric Holder, whose Justice Department oversees ATF. They asked Holder whether officials in his agency discussed how "Fast and Furious could be used to justify additional regulatory authorities." So far, they have not received a response. CBS News asked the Justice Department for comment and context on ATF emails about Fast and Furious and Demand Letter 3, but officials declined to speak with us.

"In light of the evidence, the Justice Department's refusal to answer questions about the role Operation Fast and Furious was supposed to play in advancing new firearms regulations is simply unacceptable," Rep. Issa told CBS News.

You WILL Vote Or Go To Jail.... New Democrat Plan

I thought some of you might find this of interest. Liberals screech all the time that us evil Republicans want to stick our noses into the bedrooms and womb's of all women. Well there is some truth to that although for us its a question of morality and not control. It is the democrat/liberal/progressive lot however that want to regulate everything else ....salt ....soda.... trans fat.... happy meals .... lights.... cars..... now it seems that the tolerant lefties want to make not voting a crime. You know...  they want all the folks who could not give a rats ass about the political process and who have no idea what the issues are to be forced to vote. You can rest assured that this would not even be on the democrat/liberal/progressive radar unless they knew that all these idiots would most assuredly be voting for them. I have long known that the democrat party even in its present composition is largely comprised of low information non productive segments of our population who are largely motived by government hand outs but this takes it a step further. They even suggest that they pay/ bribe those voters now. Democrat groups have a long history of paying/bribing their voters with ACORN being one of the more recent ones, paying these voters in cigarettes and dollar bills. They now want to relieve these groups of that financial burden and pass it along to the tax payers. Anyone else see where this one is going to wind up .....ELECT ME AND I WILL SEE TO IT THE GOVERNMENT PAYS YOU 1000.00 $ FOR YOUR VOTE. It seems to me they want to announce to the world someday that their candidate has won with 99.9 % of the vote and we all know where we have seen that before. All hail the Dear Leader.

Voter Apathy Isn't a Crime

It's a sure sign someone is losing when he demands that the rules be changed.
That might explain the renewed interest in forcing people to vote against their will. Peter Orszag, President Obama's former budget director and now a vice chairman at Citigroup, recently wrote a column for Bloomberg View arguing for making voting mandatory.
He's not alone. Icons of the Beltway establishment Norman Ornstein and Thomas Mann also favor the idea. As does William Galston, a former advisor to President Clinton. (Mann and Galston are scholars at the liberal Brookings Institution; Ornstein is a colleague of mine at the American Enterprise Institute.)
While I have great respect for Ornstein, Mann and Galston -- I'm undecided about Orszag -- I find the idea absurd, cynical and repugnant.
Let's start with the repugnant part.
One of the chief benefits of coerced voting, according to Orszag, is that it increases participation. Well, yes, and kidnapping drunks in pubs increased the ranks of the British navy, but it didn't turn the conscripted sailors into patriots.

Killing Whitey

Some of you may remember the New Black Panthers. They are the group that eric holder decided not to prosecute for voter intimidation at a Philly polling place and this was after they had already been convicted. This is the same group that put out a contract for murder on George Zimmerman and are the same group who have said that cracker babies need to be killed along with all other white folk. They have also been to the White House and have marched and spoke with obama at civil rights rallies, now this. 

New Black Panthers Threaten to Kill Crackers – Promise SHOWDOWN at RNC

Racist crackers gotta die.
The St. Pete – Tampa New Black Panthers are tweeting out threats to murder whitey.

Hat Tip Ed
Here’s another threat:

The New Black Panthers are also threatening a “showdown” at the RNC Convention in Tampa.

These goons have their contact information posted on their Twitter page.
Of course, if these threats were coming from some white racist group this would actually be a national story.

Obama ....You Can't Make Me Enforce The Law

 If this doesn't convince people what a spoiled vindictive nasty little man obama truly is I don't know what will. The Supreme Court with today's decision allowed the state of AZ to inquire as to someone"s immigration status while engaged in normal law enforcement activities. Not long after the Court ruled that provision of AZ 1070 was legal Obama suspended immigration agreements with the state of AZ. What obama is in essence saying is, you cannot make me enforce the law and I don't care what the Court says.

DHS suspends immigration agreements with Arizona in wake of Court ruling

posted at 6:01 pm on June 25, 2012 by Allahpundit

The Obama administration said Monday it is suspending existing agreements with Arizona police over enforcement of federal immigration laws, and said it has issued a directive telling federal authorities to decline many of the calls reporting illegal immigrants that the Homeland Security Department may get from Arizona police.
Administration officials, speaking on condition they not be named, told reporters they expect to see an increase in the number of calls they get from Arizona police — but that won’t change President Obama’s decision to limit whom the government actually tries to detain and deport…
Federal officials said they’ll still perform the checks as required by law but will respond only when someone has a felony conviction on his or her record. Absent that, ICE will tell the local police to release the person
On Monday the administration officials also said they are ending the seven 287(g) task force agreements with Arizona law enforcement officials, which proactively had granted some local police the powers to enforce immigration laws.

300 Dead Mexicans .... * SHRUG * ....Who Cares

 I have said this repeatedly, when they began Fast and Furious they knew those guns would be killing people. They knew and they allowed it anyway but it was just Mexicans who were supposed to die and who the hell cares about a few dead Mexicans. Even worse are the obama monogrammed knee pad wearing SOB in the press who insist on running interference for obama concerning Fast and Furious. The media's efforts to suppress this story for more than a year and then make excuses for obama and holder once Congress handed down a contempt citation thus making their efforts at ignoring the story impossible remove any doubt in my mind they are nothing more than whores and cheap ones at that.

Fast And Furious ....Why

The liberals continue to attempt to make the claim that Fast and Furious was a Bush program gone bad. They are lying of course. First American law enforcement officials in Mexico were aware of the Bush program, as was the Mexican government and Bush's  program known as Wide Receiver was ended by the Bush administration as a failure. So why would the obama administration resurrect a failed program with even less ability to track these weapons after they had entered Mexico. Remember the Mexican government and law enforcement had no idea this program was ongoing and that the American government was allowing guns to cross their border. Lets pretend that the Mexican government was attempting to track weapons flowing north into the U.S. could they realistically track these weapons without the support and co operation of the American government ? So if tracking these weapons wasn't the point of this program ....what was ?

Fast and Furious Falling Apart

By Russ Vaughn

When BATF agents first blew the whistle on what is now known as Operation Fast and Furious, the rationale offered by DoJ for such an evidently foolish operation was that it was designed to allow BATF to track and prosecute the leaders of the Mexican drug cartels.  As more information surfaced from the Mexican government and the BATF's Mexican bureau chief specifying that none of them knew anything of this operation, many of us who were paying a bit closer attention to the case immediately smelled the first foul scent of corruption.
The fatal flaw in DoJ's explanation was this: if the Mexican authorities had not been brought into the operation, nor even the BATF's own agents authorized to operate in Mexico, then the proffered DoJ justification made utterly no sense, for the simple reason that once those walked guns hit the south side of that border, there was absolutely no process in place to track them to their supposed targets.  Therefore, DoJ was patently  misrepresenting its motive.  Why?
For those who keep a constant wary eye on the left's never-ending war on our 2nd-Amendment right to keep and bear arms, the increasingly fishy smell emanating from Washington led to connecting the dots back to the year-earlier revelations in the liberal media that weapons being used in Mexican crimes were traceable back to American sources more than 90% of the time.  That false meme had spread quickly through the major liberal media, along with calls for stricter gun control laws in this country by...guess who!  How about our president, our secretary of state, our attorney general, and other notable Democrats, for starters?
Here we had an operation mounted by the executive branch of the United States, an operation which had as its stated goal -- after being outed, that is -- the targeting of Mexican drug lords on sovereign Mexican soil.  Yet this was done without the knowledge of anyone in the Mexican government.  Quite clearly, a secret and subversive operation had been conceived and implemented against our sister nation to the south -- subversive because, again, quite clearly, the American government was subverting the sovereign authority of Mexico without that nation's knowledge.  If the goal was, as stated later by DoJ, to track guns into Mexico to the purchasing sources in the cartels, then was there not some diplomatic requirement to notify  the Mexican government that we were arming their most violent criminal elements?  And what was the need for keeping our own BATF agents in Mexico -- the only American agents with Mexican presence to conduct such surveillance and tracking operations on Mexican soil -- equally in the dark?
It doesn't require much in the way of deductive powers to conclude that the fish-wrap smell seeping out of Washington probably had to do with Eric Holder's Department of Justice being used to tightly wrap something rotting from the head down.  And what could that be?  Early proponents of the theory suggesting that if the DoJ's rationale smelled fishy, then perhaps the true reason for F&F was to create justification for more gun control legislation here in this country were looked at as crackpot conspiracists.  Even now, most of those Republican members of Congress pursuing this scandal refuse to cite the true purpose of F&F, still referring to it as a bungled federal program.  There are exceptions: Florida congressman John Mica speaking on one of the Sunday talk shows this weekend, made clear his opinion that F&F was a sinister and cynical attempt by the Obama administration to undermine the 2nd Amendment.  I watched him say it, but Google has no link.  Imagine that.
For those who haven't really followed the Fast and Furious scandal, here's a five-step summary of how the operation was supposed to work:
  1. Allow guns to flow freely to criminal elements in Mexico, where they are naturally used in the extremely violent and deadly criminal activities of the drug cartels.
  2. When sufficient guns of American origin have been used in such criminal activities, enlist the willing services of the liberal media to announce the discovery thereof to the world.
  3. Enlist multiple prominent Democrats to untruthfully proclaim that 90% of the guns used in Mexican crimes originate in the U.S.
  4. Use steps one through three to substantiate the liberal fallacy that private gun ownership leads to increased gun violence by gun owners.
  5. With the compliance of a thoroughly duped American public, enact increasingly restrictive gun ownership policies through federal agencies, bypassing Congress and the Supreme Court.
When looked at this way, doesn't Obama's statement to a group of gun control advocates in March 2011 that he was taking steps to further gun control restrictions, but "under the radar," now seem less cryptic than it did at the time?  For those who still don't believe Fast & Furious was an end-run on the 2nd Amendment by a liberal, gun-averse administration, here are five questions to consider:
  1. Could the possibility that this plan was concocted at the very top of the administration, putting it on par with Watergate, explain Eric Holder's entrenched refusal to release the tens of thousands of documents being sought by congressional investigators?
  2. Is the liberal media's refusal to investigate this scandal due to the fact that they suspect that the acts of this administration may rise tocriminal and impeachable offenses?
  3. Has the reluctance of the Republican leadership to more aggressively support the House investigation been attributable to the same possibility -- that full exposure could lead straight to the Oval Office and the politically unsavory possibility of impeachment of the nation's first black president?
  4. Does anyone really think an ambitious politician like Holder would risk career-ending contempt of Congress charges to protect some incredibly stupid subordinates who supposedly, all by themselves, planned and implemented such a boondoggle?
  5. In an administration known for its quickness in throwing friends and associates under the bus in matters of self-preservation, is it not remarkable that rather than being so dispatched by Holder, many of the key players in F&F have been promoted despite denials by their bureau?
If all this sounds like a bit too much to swallow, consider the political origins of the key players in the current administration.  All are products of the Chicago political machine, a thoroughly Democrat movement particularly hostile to the concept of citizen gun ownership as demonstrated by the some of the nation's most restrictive gun ownership laws being in place there.  And to prove the folly of those laws and the liberal fallacy that disarming the citizenry reduces crime, here's a quite recent headline from that bastion of conservative thought and opinion, Huffington Post: "Chicago Homicide Rate Worse Than Kabul, Up To 200 Police Assigned To High-Profile Wedding (Video)."
We are quick to blame the  policies and activities of the Mexican drug cartels for their nation's murder rate being among the highest in the world.  Is it not then fair to apply the same blame to those who control a city with some of the most restrictive gun ownership laws in America, which are yielding gun-death fatality stats almost double the total casualty rate for American troops in the Afghan war zone?  It is the total and vise-like hold the Democrat machine has on Chicago that has made this city the riskiest place in America for law-abiding citizens, turning them into helpless, unarmed sheep at the mercy of roving, well-armed, predatory wolves.
Doesn't Chicago sound a lot like Mexico to you?
Never lose sight of the real reason why liberals want to confiscate your guns.  Liberals assert that government is the protector of all our freedoms, and therefore we need not be concerned with protecting ourselves and our loved ones.  The folly of that assertion can be refuted with one word: Chicago.  But the true reason for wanting an unarmed public is because such a citizenry is powerless in the face of armed government and therefore compliant.  Liberals and Democrats know full well that the key to unrestrained governing is to first disarm the citizenry.

Added Thought .... and keep this in mind as well ...there was no way that the obama administration did not know that these guns would kill people in Mexico. With the state of affairs being what it is in Mexico, with more than 50,000 deaths over the last several years tied directly to the drug cartels the administration had to have known they were pouring gasoline on a raging fire. And yet they did just that.... why ?

Just No Explaining Liberal Crazy

I've listened to this vid several times and I still can't figure out the wack a doo furries she must have crawling around between her ears to have come to her conclusions. The thought process of the typical liberal is so far outside my depth or ability to grasp that I often wonder if we are of the same species. I have often heard the phrase that liberalism is a mental disorder and while this vid does nothing further to confirm it, that was achieved long ago in my mind, it does tend to support that conclusion. It does make sense she works for MSNBC it just goes to show that even the insane can find gainful employment.
