Huge Obama Administration Scandal

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on July 10, 2011

PG was trolling through a comment thread when he saw this comment.
“And, I forgot to mention, this blog used to be about political issues.” Got that right. I keep waiting for this, or several other liberal blogs I visit, to even acknowledge the existence of the huge Obama administration scandal that’s been breaking over the last month or two, and there’s been nada. It’s got it all, right down to the DOJ responding to Congressional subpoenas with hundreds of blank sheets, department heads singing like canaries, perjury, death… Can you name it? Posted by: Brett Bellmore | July 09, 2011 at 05:53 AM Mr. Bellmore, do you have a link for that story? Posted by: chamblee54 | July 09, 2011 at 08:15 AM.
As you may have guessed, the second comment was PG’s response. In online discussions, there is little excuse for making grand statements without showing where you got your information. The reader might want to know more about the story, and he also might want to judge the context.

Before we move onto the administration affair, the original topic of the comment thread should be mentioned. A lady was drinking, in a hotel bar, in Dublin, Ireland. She was attending an atheist conference. At four am, she said  that she was exhausted, and going to her room. A man got on the elevator with her, and invited the lady to his hotel room “for coffee”. This piece of business has generated a bit of controversy, with thousands of comments at various blogs. Go here to know more.

The second comment after the link request mentioned this story. It doesn’t relate to elevator baristas, or Obama scandals.
“A Bible-waving preacher protesting at a gay pride event was kissed on the cheek by a female gay rights supporter – a 74-year-old woman who was charged with simple assault, with the preacher’s blessing…The preacher, James Edward Belcher of Taylorsville (NC) … contends the kiss “was just one of many attempts to silence the preaching to those in need of salvation who practice a death style that they call a lifestyle.”
Ten hours after the link request, this appeared :
“I’m not Mr. Bellmore, but I’d play him for a venti decaf latte. I’m going to give you a whole lot of links and you can decide for yourself which to read, and how much of it you want to take as presented….That should get you started.” Posted by: Slartibartfast | July 09, 2011 at 06:47 PM
The first link is from TownHall dot com. There is a popup ad, asking you to subscribe to THDC, that you must click through to get to the article. The deal is an ATF (The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives , a.k.a Alabama weekend shopping list) operation called “Fast and Furious”. It seems as though “straw buyers” went to gun dealers in Arizona, bought automatic weapons, and sent these weapons to drug cartels in Mexico.

Pajamas Media has a story, with the headline “The Definitive Scandal: ‘Gunwalker’ Much Worse Than ‘Iran-Contra”.
“Quoting: “AK-pattern semiautomatic rifles” I really liked the way you described the weapons involved as opposed to the gratuitously inaccurate, but much more common, “assault weapons”. Too bad they don’t teach your wording in our Journalism schools. “
Committees in the House and Senate have investigated the affair, and issued a staff report . The introduction to the report states:
“In the fall of 2009, the Department of Justice (DOJ) developed a risky new strategy to combat gun trafficking along the Southwest Border. The new strategy directed federal law enforcement to shift its focus away from seizing firearms from criminals as soon as possible— and to focus instead on identifying members of trafficking networks. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) implemented that strategy using a reckless investigative technique that street agents call “gunwalking.” ATF’s Phoenix Field Division began allowing suspects to walk away with illegally purchased guns. The purpose was to wait and watch, in the hope that law enforcement could identify other members of a trafficking network and build a large, complex conspiracy case.”
The last link in the comment is from ABC news . The headline was “In Secret Testimony ATF Chief Tells Congress about Controversial Gun Program”. There is an auto start video about a US Border Patrol agent who was killed using a weapon purchased in the program. An ad to the side of the page tells how California drivers get lower insurance rates.

Operation Fast and Furious appears to be a poorly conceived and executed affair. It appears to be similar to other programs to entrap people, in an effort to get the “big man”. Efforts by one branch of the government to decieve another branch of the government should be discouraged. PG strongly suspects that BHO will not be impeached because of Operation Fast and Furious.
