Breitbart on why the media tends to ignore Fast and Furious(Video)
dailycaller.com ^ | 18 February, 2012 | Ginni Thomas

Posted on 02/20/2012 7:27:48 PM PST by marktwain

The Operation Fast and Furious scandal is one that the establishment media refuses to cover fully, conservative media icon Andrew Breitbart said in a recent interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas.

Fast and Furious happened, Breitbart explained, “for the purposes of creating a narrative that they could use in America to try and thwart our Second Amendment constitutional rights. I don’t think the most sinister screenwriter could imagine a government that would abide by that, let alone the media to cover that up.”

Republican candidates should run commercials, in SPANISH which tell the stories of the DEAD MEXICANS Obama and Holder sacrificed, in their attempted “Treaty with Mexico” end run around the 2nd Amendment!

Remember. This is a media that had Valerie Plame as a two year massive scandal. Yet ignores this one.

If Fast and Furious happened under Bush, it would have been 24/7 loop, weekly covers on Time/Newsweek, with all the insiders being household names by now.

There would have been calls for Bush’s impeachment, and the AG would have certainly been ousted by now if not up on criminal charges.

Frankly, I don’t think Obama controls anything. The man is just too lazy. If anything, he’s controlled by elements of the press, the Democrat establishment and perhaps Soros.

Then, of course, there’s Moochelle...

But back to Fast and Furious, the same people work to keep that story out of the news because Obama is their tool and they don’t want him damaged.

It’s the same reason every other negative aspect of his life — and they are countless — never seems to see print.

Where is the breaking footage and research Breitbart promised to deliver at CPAC . Me thinks he lost a lot of credibility from his failure to deliver the goods.

Excellent comment....”Obama is a tool” ....of some very powerful and dedicated forces who intend to gut the USA. They’ve done a pretty good job in the last 3 years.

Stunning that the only ones who really stand up to them are the Tea Party.

Breitbart is right on the money. Holder is a very bad person and everyone involved, including the media that cover this up, are extremely evil. It is state-sponsered terrorism done solely to push a domestic political agenda. Hundreds of people have been brutally murdered and the government of Mexico pushed further towards the brink in order to demonize American gun ownership.

Let's call it what it is. State-sponsored terrorism.

On this side of the border it's violations of the RICO Act. In Mexico and Honduras it's state-sponsored terrorism.

What else would you call heavily arming international criminal syndicates within a foreign country wherein that country is in a death struggle with those syndicates?

Especially when it goes beyond thousands of assault rifles to include grenades, RPGs, shoulder fired rockets, anti-aircraft guns, night vision equipment, body armor and special deals to bring their drugs onto our soil with legal impunity?

Not to mention the just-revealed news that the rip crew that killed BP Agent Brian Terry was there with DEA and FBI assistance and approval to attack and kill a rival cartel's smuggling crew.

Let's not leave out the FBI and DEA laundering millions of dollars for the drug cartels by setting up bank accounts for them that they otherwise couldn't do.

It's organized, it is spread through every Federal LEA and it violates numerous domestic laws and numerous statutes and treaties that deal with foreign nations. Yet none of it has been officially sanctioned. It's the FedGov acting like mafiosa.

0bama, Holder and Hillary Clinton are all deeply involved in this and it is state-sponsored terrorism. These Chicago machine Marxist thugs are dragging our country down to the level of Tehran and Pyongyang.

Someone in our government has involved every Federal LEA and the DoJ itself as primary accessories to mass murder for a sound bite on gun control. How do you like that, Sarah Brady?

He said he would release it in October. Are you a pre-cognizant telling us he didn’t?

Wrong. It is an act of war.

What’s the difference? Isn’t state-sponsored terrorism an act of war? I don’t get the distinction you’re trying to make or why.

Imagine if Nixon’s men had gone to the congressional committees and provided a thousand pages of blacked-out paper, basically in diplo-speak two middle fingers and a hearty F-YOU!”

Then imagine if the MSM, WaPo and NYT never even covered it, except to call Senator Sam Ervin a partisan hack with an agenda of bringing down our beloved President Nixon?

That’s how far we have fallen toward gangster govt under Obama and his lapdog MSM.

EXCLUSIVE: Obama ICE Chief Ignores Agent-Shootings; In NYC Job-Seeking @ NBC, Viacom, to LA for Oscars (on Your Dime)

By Debbie Schlussel

Question: Why is Barack Obama’s top immigration cop blowing off the internecine shooting of a top agent and the death of another?

Answer: He’s busy using your tax dollars to fly to New York in his job search, meeting with top officials of NBC Universal and Viacom, trying to land a position as an entertainment lawyer. Yup, you are paying for his post-Obama job quest, complete with a posse of bodyguards and top ICE staff, all of whom are aware of the job quest.

Sorry I must have missed that October date. My bad. I just am very curious why wait that long. perhaps it should be the week after the DNC convention. Then its too late to change courses. October is a pretty late date in the time frame of the campaign. I don’t think any opinions will change at that late date.

To complete the analogy first you have to imagine that the Watergate burglars went in with sub-machine guns and mowed down a bunch of hotel staff and guests. Or set off a bomb and killed a couple dozen people. Mostly because they could not because they needed to. Then we can move on to the media refusing to cover it and calling people partisan hacks for bringing it up.

We now live under a full blown gangster government. They don't even wince when called on it they laugh and mock the ones who bring it up.

And the “conservative” adjective is necessary exactly why?

Very true. It’s orders of mag worse than Watergate, hence the MSM collusion in coverup is orders of mag more evil, and critical to the success of Gangster Govt Inc.

Why is it that every sector in our society is subject to upholding certain ethical professional standards and can be sued for malpractice EXCEPT for the media? It is outrageous that they allow themselves to be controlled by this WH. What the hell is going on? It’s like the Stepford Media.

At the time I thought the Clinton years were jaw-droppingly corrupt. Now that seems like distant memories of halcyon days filled with college pranks.

A little real estate theft here a little drug running there. A little stock manipulation here a little murder in the park there. A little BJ in the Oval Office here a little dead cat on the porch there. A little ICBM tech to China here a little foreign campaign cash there.

Ah, well, here's to those innocent days of petty crimes and single body counts performed by private contractors not Federal LEAs leaving truck loads of corpses in their bureaucratic wake.

All dictators keep pushing with small steps, waiting to be pushed back hard. When they are not, they advance, ratchet-like, toward tyranny.

This is the Hugo Chavez method, in slow-mo.

A lot of ground has been covered but so far no real push back at all.

He walked into Paris and took it without so much as a pistol. No one reported it. He took down the Eiffel Tower and put up an iron Swastika even bigger. No one has noticed it yet. The skies are filled with war planes and the seas are covered with battle ships. The weather report is 'sunny today with a chance of light showers tomorrow.' Republicans are grouchy because their spending bills are being rejected. Spring will be here soon and baseball season will start. Snookie's a slut.

The vast majority of voters are not even paying attention until the last few weeks prior to the election. Sad, but true.
