Gunwalker Explodes into the Heartland (But NOT the Heartland MSM)
Pajamas Media ^ | September 6, 2011 | Bob Owens

Posted on 09/06/2011 3:36:21 PM PDT by PJ-Comix

If the reassignment of ATF officials in recent weeks and the abrupt resignation of U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke were attempts by the Department of Justice and the Obama administration to cover up the Gunwalker scandal, they have failed, miserably.

Now they are saddled by yet another claim of retaliation against a whistleblower and new revelations that gunwalking was far more lethal and widespread that originally thought.

David Codrea of the Examiner has been at the forefront of the investigation, and reveals that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) and FBI — two of the agencies that played key rolls in Operation Fast and Furious — conducted a remarkably similar operation … in Indiana.

Having the Media on your side is better than a license to steal.

If nothing else Obama has proven that.

How long can the media ignore “Operation Gunwalker”.

It makes Watergate look like a Girl Scout hike.

It was not the Bush Administration that did it. If it had happened during the Bush Administration it would be a horse of a different color.

“The biggest difference between the two operations at this early date only seems to be that Gangwalker is a purposeful attempt to create the deaths of American citizens in order to pursue the administration’s fanatical anti-gun agenda.

American deaths, for political gain.

Think about that claim for a minute, and what that would mean.”

There are no words for those treasonous scoundrels.

Drip, drip, drip.

But for the most black-hearted, evil scandal in US history, there isn’t the cacophony of shrieking that it really deserves.

The really amazing part is HOW QUIET MATT DRUDGE IS ABOUT THIS.

It’s completely bizarre.

Holder and the potentate will probably order the ATF to furnish “clean” guns to Hoffa’s union thugs so they can ‘take us out’.

The thing that keeps amazing me is not that leftists are the vile offensives scum that they are, but it’s that repubs are so disgustingly cowardly and servile. And dead silent. Cowardice is yay far (holding fingers real close together) from complicity.

You expect enemies to be enemies. But when those who are supposed to be on your side are servile scum, then what do you do?

Maybe WE need to blitz him on it?

That said, I'm sure DRUDGE has had a bulls-eye on him from the beginning - and either blackmail or real threats to family would not be a surprise....Beck carries, due too all the threats on him and family. AS do others on our side. And he has protection with him when he's out and about.

It would be interesting to know what level of threats there are against our side as opposed to the RATS. They truly ARE the Dark Side.

You’ve got me completely stumped on the spelling test but I agree 100% about repub pols treading a fine line between cowardice and complicity. If they don’t find some spine and character soon it won’t matter. No one will care to hear their excuses and make that distinction if they let the republic fall.

Palin did. A whole page about it, it’s somewhere on FR today. SHe put it on her Face Book thing. I never look at FB. I have my limits. But it was pretty good I thought, making nice with the rank and file and telling them that the union leaders are Richard Craniums.

She is one step ahead of the crowd as usual. I was thinking that Michele Bachmann might have said something about it too but I am not certain. Isn’t it interesting that women seem to be showing the most courage these days?

Yes, it’s very unfortunate. Maybe it’s that maternal instinct that makes mother cats scare off way bigger animals.

"We’re looking at impeachment for the most serious of charges, and possible criminal prosecutions for a widespread conspiracy to commit murder that walks right up to the line of the legal definition of treason."
