On Sunday night, Spanish-language station Univision— one of the only networks to provide critical coverage of President Obama’s failures in office instead of cream-puff interviews — broke open the Fast and Furious investigation, revealing new evidence of weapons smuggling and displaying shocking new images of the bloody aftermath of the government-supported gun-smuggling program. The Univision report undermines the integrity of the recently released DOJ inspector general report on Operation Fast and Furious, already heavily criticized as an attempt to whitewash criminal activity within the Obama administration.
This may be good but it's worth noting that all civilians are prohibited from owning guns in Mexico. Therefore all guns entering the country go to the criminals. The presence of guns in the hands of free and honest citizens prevents crime. So....while Mexico may be helping us pursue Mssr. Holder & Co. they are still very wrong headed about gun control.
I had never heard of project gang walker or project gun walker until this article. Those are very scarey because they are being used in select big cities and states for the purpose of harming citizens to turn the population against gun use.
And Hispanics will overwhelmingly vote for Obambi despite the fact he runs guns to drug cartels so that innocent Mexicans can be slaughtered. Hispanics voting for Obambi is like Jews voting for Hitler. It makes no sense at all.
This is all well and good. But it is just a set up to clear the way for some Mexicans to sue the American taxpayer for deaths caused by these guns. The truth is, whatever murders were committed with Fast and Furious guns would have been committed anyway. There are plenty of other guns in the hands of Mexican criminals.
Just like American Jews, Hispanics must realize that Obama, his administration and the Democrat Party are not their friends and do not care. The American Media is a disgrace and should be ashamed the it took the work of Univision to reveal the details of this bloody atrocity and cover up by the Obama administration. The American Media is complicit and in collusion obviously with Washington Democrats in the cover up as well.
They call AK47s "Goat's horns"! Maybe Obama and Holder thought the cartel was shopping for real goat horns? They aren't that bright, you know? They probably don't know many Mexicans. Or, they didn't get it. Busy raising funds, and what not.
Univision was co-founded by and owned by - until a few years ago when he sold his interest - Jerry Perenchio, a former Hollywood agent and promoter (his roster included Elizabeth Taylor) - who is a huge supporter of Republican PACs and candidates and is fiercely anti-illegal immigrant.
A. Jerrold Perenchio, known as "Jerry," made the bulk of his fortune selling Spanish-language broadcaster Univision for $13.7 billion in 2007 to a consortium led by fellow Los Angeles billionaire Haim Saban.
FTA: Univision also uncovered evidence of weapons being smuggled from Texas: two gun-smuggling programs similar to Fast and Furious are rumored to have put thousands of additional weapons in the cartels’ hands in operations larger than Fast and Furious.
On June 6, 2010 two illegals Damaso Rueda-Cabrera (20) and Arnulfo de la Cruz Sanchez were stopped by Laredo Police with 147 assault rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammunition. The were charged with immigration crimes and served 10 and 45 days respectively.
On Aug 1, 2012 Damaso Rueda-Cabrera (30) and Rene Chapa were sentenced to 80 months and 70 months for arms trafficing. The story is that Chapa hired an under cover ICE agent to transport the guns and ammunition and the trap was sprung when Cabrera met the truck.
Sounds to me like this was clean up after Fast and Furious blew up.
I don`t believe the country at large cares one wit about F & F, Benghazi or any other Scandal of the Week. These things come and go during the standard `news cycles`. Since most people get their `news` from Big Media and BM doesn`t cover the story properly, these things tend to fade away after time. People simply get tired of hearing about it and move on. Holder was found in contempt of Congress back in late June, almost 100 days ago. What has happened since? N-o-t-h-i-n-g. Nothing will come from the Benghazi fiasco either. It`s business as usual. Congressional investigations do nothing.
It's amazing that to get a fair/truthful report of events we are forced to go to foreign reporting. Outside of Fox witch I think is getting more liberal I start by thinking anything I read or hear is probably a contrived report of half truths or misleading facts(lies).
Again, it all boils down to network media millionaire "stars", like 1% Diane Sawyer, Scott Pelley, Brian Williams acting as the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, censoring the real news like TRAITORS TO THE TRUTH, protected by their MAFIA MEDIA union contracts, big salaries, all the networks, all lobbying sponsors, and Fox TV EVEN, all the same "containment safe" guys or they would not be allowed on the air. Glenn Beck, Andrew Napolitano became too straightforward, honest and lost out, lost their shows, too direct, TV including FoxTV, is "Containment City" so many subjects are taboo, blocked out, never discussed. We're in giant economics and dictator-czar-executive order TROUBLE and you will not see hear any of it on TV. Only the INTERnet is open city to the truth, and your average person TV watcher just sits there with fast food, big sugared drinks and soaks up the brainwashing from the Gobellesian Sawyers and Lettermans every night. The internet allows in, does not bar information from the outside, like Canada Free Press, and a few of the UK sites
If Romney is nimble he will say to Univision immediately that he will prosecute those responsible no matter how far up it goes. They are very passionate about this and it's a big issue to them. Obama will just make more of the same excuses that they aren't buying. He's liable to lose a lot of the Hispanic vote over this if Romney handles it right.
Twenty gunmen hired to assassinate a bunch of seemingly innocent teenagers? Hired by whom? What a perfect way to start a wave of outrage against guns. If the government has sunk low enough to hold a secret, illegal gun sale, it's also low enough to use them. Washington has been infiltrated by the entire Chicago black crime syndicate.
The sequester, no matter how imperfect a policy, is arguably the only victory for fiscal conservatives in a very long time. Their victory is also president Obama’s biggest defeat (outside of the self-inflicted disastrous Obamacare rollout). It is also another opportunity to remind the American people that the alarmist predictions that we were all subjected to about the devastating impact sequestration would have on our economy didn’t materialize. Yet, in a new move, Republicans are once again considering caving to Democrats and getting rid of the spending cuts. This morning’s Wall Street Journal has the following. Still, officials close to
President Obama’s repeated use of presidential powers is causing a tough problem — his own supporters now expect him to use it to achieve everything they want. From immigration to the minimum wage, congressional Democrats and liberal activists this week urged Mr. Obama to declare an end run around Capitol Hill, assert executive authority and make as much progress as he can on the expansive agenda he laid out for his second term. A day after Mr. Obama denounced income inequality, progressive lawmakers said he should take the lead by issuing an executive order requiring all federal contractors to pay
Three crises, one president, many bewildered friends. The first crisis, barely noticed here, is Ukraine’s sudden turn away from Europe and back to the Russian embrace. After years of negotiations for a major trading agreement with the European Union, Ukraine succumbed to characteristically blunt and brutal economic threats from Russia and abruptly walked away. Ukraine is instead considering joining the Moscow-centered Customs Union with Russia’s fellow dictatorships Belarus and Kazakhstan. This is no trivial matter. Ukraine is not just the largest European country, it’s the linchpin for Vladimir Putin’s dream of a renewed imperial Russia, hegemonic in its neighborhood and
Entering his sophomore year at Occidental College, Barack Obama sought a political movement to match his personal awakening, which he signaled to friends and family at the time by reclaiming his African first name. Barry became Barack that year. He had read Du Bois, Fanon, Malcolm X — an array of authors writing about the black struggle for liberation in his country and in others shaking off the legacy of colonial rule around the world. That is where he looked for — and found — a figure and a cause to channel his rising political enthusiasm: Nelson Mandela, then imprisoned
I´m generally for more disclosure in campaign finance, but the best argument against requiring full disclosure by groups engaged in political speech is that politicians sometimes retaliate against their critics. Sen. Elizabeth Warren inadvertently made that very argument this week. As told by Ben White at Politico, a group called "Third Way" criticized Warren. Warren apparently suspected that Third Way´s criticism of her was funded by banks. So she wrote a letter to bank CEOs demanding they disclose which political groups they´re funding. Warren sits on the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs. She´s basically telling the entities
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
