Executive Privilege abuse
There should be no doubt in anyone’s mind about the purpose of Fast and Furious. It was to sway public opinion to allow more government control over firearms in the United States. It should further be understood those responsible for this flawed, attempted sting knew there was a possibility of some harm coming to innocent citizens. Allowing guns to illegally get into the hands of known criminals would assure this outcome. However, those in charge did not care about the risk, only about securing their desired result. Neither Obama nor Holder have tried to hide their desire to eliminate or directly control guns in this country. Registration is the first step to confiscation. In order to further their objective, guns must be confiscated if Obama’s promised plan to (transform) convert the U.S. into communism, Marxism or fascism is to be realized.
Fast and Furious is undoubtedly going to take more than 6 months to investigate and determine who exactly was involved and the degree of involvement. This abuse is far worse than the case of Bill Clinton’s sexual blunder because the cover-up was worse than the act itself in his case. Here lives have been lost and this administration may be at fault. The executive privilege Obama has just attempted to impose is only the beginning of the fight; it will get worse. If however, Obama is not reelected it will be necessary to continue the investigation, even after he leaves office. This is a case unlike any other, in memory, faced by our nation. One, maybe two (possibly more), Americans were killed by the results of this attempted government sting action. That cannot or must not stand. There have also been an unknown number of Mexicans murdered. These facts should outrage everyone in America, not just conservatives. Condoning these acts can only lead to anarchy and more law abuse by this administration. Are the liberal, progressive Obama supporters unable to reason that out? To blindly support a murderer is, at best, idiocy.
It appears it will be necessary to finish the investigation after the next election. Remember Richard Nixon was reelected and the Democrats managed to apply enough pressure to remove him. However, in order to reach a conclusion we must have the tenacity to stick to our theories and follow through on our suspicions. It is not unusual for those seeking to enhance power to overstep their authority. In several instances that is exactly what Obama has already done. It is interesting however that this is all happening in spite of the lack of extensive coverage by the main stream media. The real question that needs to be answered is why?
There is absolutely no question Brian Terry was killed with weapons our government allowed (or forced) to “walk” across the border into Mexico. There is nothing about this whole Fast and Furious thing that doesn’t stink. Since when do crooks and murderers leave their weapons behind? Would we have known illegal weapons were used if they had not been left behind? Was Brian Terry’s murder a set up as well? Was he sacrificed by this administration in an effort to make gun control more acceptable to the American people?
Unless we see what is in those documents will we ever be able to correctly answer any of these questions? Is this the reason the statement was made, “If you want to make an omelet you have to break some eggs.” Can anyone defending Obama’s action of invoking executive privilege explain how these questions can be answered without seeing the documents? Does Obama’s action make him an accessory to the fact and therefore guilty of murder as well? Is it legal for the president of the United States to harbor or protect a murderer? Is that what Obama is doing here by not allowing the details to become known?
The liberal progressive defenders of this action are right about one thing; this is not like Watergate. That was a break-in cover-up, this is an Obama administration murder cover-up. There is considerable difference between a burglary and a murder. We must find out this information so those responsible for one, possibly two (or more) American’s deaths along with perhaps hundreds of Mexicans, receive the proper punishment. These types of things must never happen again!
Anyone directly involved in Fast and Furious may very well be guilty of pre-meditated murder and it could be said in the first degree if they were in charge and okayed the program or assisted in the planning.
