What A Real Scandal Looks Like

  1. A simple explanation is the cartel paid Obama and Holder for the guns.

  2. I looked up some terminology the other day, going down an unassociated rabbit hole, but this article and my reading puts Fast and Furious in a light I had not thought of before. The premise of Fast and Furious was to provide particular types of guns to criminals from quasi-legal sources (American gun stores, through pathways that are already illegal – straw purchasers, etc.), so that banning these particular types of guns could be “sold” to the American public as the “solution” to the “problem” that the government via DOJ/BATFE created. This is a particular type of fraud known as a “racket”. This is a crime, and its perpetrators should be prosecuted for violation of RICO statute(s). If this hasn’t been said in testimony before congress, it needs to be.

      Government – at all levels – was smart enough to make sure that it is not subject to RICO laws. Even assuming the best possible motive on their part, they pretty much had to, otherwise any corruption/illegal action anywhere along the line could be charged against the government as a whole and everyone who worked for it – even if all but a few bad apples were pure as the driven snow.

      Anything like that makes holding and expanding power pretty difficult.

  3. There is a far greater scandal – the assassination on Sept. 30 2011 of a U.S. born citizen, who was not under indictment, was not on a field of battle, and did not pose an imminent threat. Another naturalized US citizen was killed in the attack. Two weeks later, the USA assassinated his 16 year-old son, plus a third victim just this past January, his 8 year old daughter. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anwar_al-Awlaki

    No less a liberal bastion than the ACLU sued Dear Leader’s administration over this – and were rebuffed by the Judiciary on more than one occasion. The administration’s official position was so egregious that the New York Times editorial board took them to task for it. Was he a bad guy? No doubt, plus he has a funny sounding name and is Muslim (sarc.) An indictment should have been sought….an “extraordinary rendition” even…but extrajudicial punishment, in this case capital punishment, is unacceptable – the hallmark of any tinpot dictatorship is the ability to execute your citizens outside of the rule of law. So here’s a challenge, why not team up with the ACLU, dig a bit into that case, expose the U.S. Senators, one from Oregon, one from Colorado, who subsequently authored a letter to AG Holder, essentially looking for the means to further systematize the practice of extrajudicial punishment. I personally confronted one of them at a town hall meeting – his body language was obvious, he knew what I was saying. He still sits as a senior member on the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee.

    Due process? We don’t need no stinkin’ due process.
