Gunwalker: From Obama’s Inauguration to Issa’s Report

The terrible gun policy and administration lies that have led to the scandal of scandals

Major scandals don’t always have the most dramatic beginnings. Andrew Johnson was impeached for replacing the sitting secretary of war; Richard Nixon’s collapse started with a breaking and entering. Bill Clinton’s infamy was guaranteed for quibbling over the definition of a common verb.

It now appears that high-ranking officials in the Obama administration may be writing the end of their careers and risking a life behind bars by arguing about the technical definition of “walking” firearms.

“Gunwalker” now involves the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF); its parent agency, the Department of Justice (DOJ); the Department of Homeland Security (DHS); and the White House itself. But to understand the depth of the scandal you must return to its roots at the beginning of the Obama adminstration.

Within weeks of President Obama’s inauguration in January of 2009, newly installed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Attorney General Eric Holder began to craft the meme that Mexican drug cartel violence was rooted in what they view as lax American gun laws. By February 4, we were hearing the infamous “90 percent lie,” the administration’s false accusation that 90 percent of the guns used in cartel crime could be traced to U.S. gun shops.

    And just look at who the incompetent in chief is considering to head up the ATF. Obama scoured the nation coast to coast for a suitable replacement and loe and behold he found the one suitable candidate….and he’s in Chicago. What a coincidence.

    Off Topic: “Daddy” received a brand new computer on Sunday (HP Pavilion p6710f) and I’m finally getting around to making the change after saving a lot of “stuff” to disk.

    I should be back shortly but if I am not you’ll know what happened and that I am in “poop up to my ears”.

    We’ll see how this goes.

    “Later”…

      OK — “Jacks’s back”on a computer that howls. The only thing that really upset me was finding the “power” button. It took me over half an hour to find it on the very top of the machine and hidden from view.

      Still working….

        So much for a new computer. I have a lot to do yet and tomorrow is soon enough.

    “The Constitution puts no one above the law. If Melson, Napolitano, Holder, Obama and their staffs were complicit in a plot to arm narco-terrorists that led to hundreds dead and wounded, they must face justice.”
