Shocked that CNN would go this far in to the investigation. One of the best TV news reports I have seen on the Fast and Furious debacle.

Obama is going to be tossed under the bus for Hillary. The media can force him out.

Who knows. The dumb bastards might get around to reporting on the corrupt ‘green energy’ job scandals by 2017. This ‘GunWalker’ thing has been out there for almost a year! I guess better late than never....

I find it hard to believe that Anderson Cooper could ever possibly say anything incriminating against Zer0.

This is quite perceptive. If the media is turning on Obama, I would guess that the reason is they think he's going to lose and he's going to drag down the Dems in Congress with him. Once they decide that's going to happen, then they have the ammo (such as this report) to destroy him, and they'll do it to get Hillary the nomination.

I watched it also. Toward the end, Anderson Cooper asked the reporter why this was done and the reporter basically said it makes no sense. He said Second Amendment conspiracy theorists think it was an Obama administration plot to bring about more gun control laws. Without citing any evidence, but noting the lack of any other explanation, he said that the theory is looking more plausible.

Trust me, this one is worth watching. The reporter even said that it is a crazy conspiracy that the program was to persuade opinion for further gun control. He then said it is really the only theory that makes sense. Priceless.

If the MSM is trying to dethrone Obama they are dumber than they look. If they want to tick the minority base off for a decade to come, turn on ‘the first black president’. Probably not many blacks will start voting GOP, but a far greater number will just stay home.

Your analysis is quite correct, but your imagery might could use a little tweaking.

Obama is going to be forced to take a seat in the back of the bus so that Hillary can drive. It is all about a white woman proving that she is more competent than the first black President, and putting him in his place, right where he belongs.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

I think it was also a political operation against conservatives. The "Lone Wolf Trading Company' was the name of the main store pushing these guns... Comments from an earlier reply:

Lone Wolf Trading Company?

Lone Wolf Trading Company? That's a classic sting operation front name for law enforcement ... It's such an obvious name - that when the operation's done, insiders can laugh for years about how stupid crooks are... and they are... but that's later...

Looking at the name - and only the name - I'd say the real target wasn't Mexican drug dealers - it was the so-called 'lone wolfs' - the conservative boggie-man / straw man of the totalitarian left.

The 'boggie-man type the Southern Poverty Law Center claims exists everywhere. The one they pushed during the old 'vast right wing conspiracy' days. "Lone Wolf" is the updated version of VRWC. Of course the totalitarian left hasn't been able to find ONE lone wolf - NOT one right wing terrorist in the last decade or two - that's their holy grail... So what were they suppose to do? The Totalitarian left has been saying these nutty conservatives (dangerous) are behind every tree - and THEY CAN'T COME UP WITH ONE!!!

The horror.

This program was probably designed to prime the pump - because scare stories quit working when no one can catch ONE right wing 'lone wolf'... The totalitarian left fears losing their "suck-ups" who write for the Washington Post and New York Times. And if they can't give them an "I told you so" piece every now and then, they will lose them. The MSM isn't as stupid as the left things... they do catch on after ten or fifteen years...

And yeah, there's probably a reason "Woodward and Bernstein" aren't on this...

The MSM will do it very deceptively, without hardly any of the general populace noticing it.

CNN ran this story to push the myth that F&F was about gun control.

It's now been reported the ATF allowed grenades to go across the border.

Grenades are already controlled, damn-it.

F&F isn't about gun control, somebody is being armed up by Zippo and Co.

They need to make people believe F&F was about gun control because if people believe it's about gun control they won't look any further. People won't look any further because gun control is what they want to believe.

The Clinton's used the same strategy with Waco. Cooked up one nonsensical cover story that no one believed, then a second cover story was fed to people. People believed the second story because they wanted to believe it. No one ever got to the real truth about Waco.

CNN is a Democrat /Clinton mouth piece and they are tied in tight to the Democrat establishment. CNN no doubt have had Democrats in Dept of Justice give them a heads up of just how damaging the the evidence that's going to come out is going to be.

It's going to be real bad, about as bad as it can get and the Obama people were too stupid, too inexperienced and too arrogant to cover their tracks.

CNN is now starting the damage control to distance themselves and the Democrat Party from this disaster and they are going to let Obama and his buddies take the fall they deserve.

For their part, the members of the Obama regime is not going to quietly into the night. Expect Obama to choose the Hugo Chavez option and mobilize the street. This could explain a lot of the recent inflammatory rhetoric on the part of the regime and it's supporters.

The Dems and the MSM are SOL no matter how they do it. Hillary ran against Obama the first time around. That wacky Chicago priest did a skit in which he mocked Hillary for thinking she was ‘entitled’. I know non-political blacks who could recite every word of that guy’s dramatization, and they even had all the inflections down pat. If any liberal thinks Obama can be eased out and replaced w Hillary they ain’t seen nothing yet. Part of their most reliable base will be in wholesale rebellion, and they won’t settle back down for a good long time to come.

This is the money post of this thread. The RATs are on the horns of a dilemma. Stay with FUBO and loose everything even with the Blacks giving their customary 97%, or oust FUBO and loose The Presidency at the very least, with the Black’s staying home “for dissing their guy.” The only fear we should have is that the Republicans manage to screw things up. We simply have to clean house with respect to the so-called “Republican (Read RINO) Leadership.”
