What is the Obama administration hiding, and why are they hiding it?
Commentary ^ | 6/20/2012 | Peter Wehner

Posted on 06/20/2012 12:29:51 PM PDT by mojito

Attorney General Eric Holder has a problem with the accuracy of his congressional testimonies.

For example, on May 3, 2011, Holder – when asked when he became aware of the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal, told the House Judiciary Committee, “I’m not sure of the exact date, but I probably heard about Fast and Furious for the first time over the last few weeks.” But as CBS News reported, “Internal Justice Department documents show that at least ten months before that hearing, Holder began receiving frequent memos discussing Fast and Furious.” This forced Holder to confess to Senate Republicans that the Justice Department had provided “inaccurate” information to Congress during his May 3 testimony.

Now comes Retraction Number Two.

Retraction #2.
Holder blamed Bush’s last AG for being briefed on gunrunning to Mexico, before obamma took office, trying to make obamma and Holder look good by carrying on what Bush approved.
But today, Holder had to retract that statement, saying he misspoke (Washingtonspeak for lying).

Too bad they can’t be infected with some sort of malady that doesn’t allow them to lie, a la “Liar, Liar”...

It’d be great to see 0bama give a speech where he lays out his true vision for the country, his contempt for its founding principles, etc...

and, on this issue - “yes, I want to deny the individual the ownership of firearms, but I knew it wasn’t politically viable to do it in the open, so I orchestrated F&F in order to get it done without political consequence.”

Holder and the Hilldabeast's fingerprints are all over an identical operation between Tampa and Honduras

does it add up?:

Honduras? Why would ATF walk guns to Honduras?

and this........

Obama Admin Lobbying Honduras To Allow Zelaya Back In? Are You Kidding?

What could possibly be the motive behind this lunacy?

On the last day of December last year, Manuel “Mel” Zelaya, the deposed Honduran president and self-described victim of high-frequency radiation attacks by Israeli mercenaries, vowed to the press that he would return to Honduras. Few outside of Honduras have paid much attention to Zelaya’s MacArthur-esque prediction, but it has become apparent there is more behind his declaration than his usual hyperbole and bombastic absurdities.

Behind the scenes in the Obama administration there appears to be a concerted effort to pressure the democratically elected government of President Porfirio Lobo to dismiss charges of misappropriation of government funds and falsifying documents that are pending against Zelaya. This would open the door for his return to the country, and would be certain to undermine the delicate process of reestablishing democracy and order that is currently taking place in this poor and beleaguered nation.

When Zelaya was removed from office in July of 2009, the Obama administration at first joined with leftist dictators Fidel Castro of Cuba, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, and Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua in calling for his reinstatement. The Obama White House seemed oblivious to the Honduran constitution, as well as the threat Zelaya posed to the stability of the country and the region. When the courageous Honduran people held firm to their democratic constitution and refused to yield to the pressure exerted by the U.S., the Obama administration found no way of saving face other than reversing course and backing the democratic presidential elections called for by their constitution.

The Honduran Connection 7.7.11 Now we know why Hillary Clinton and Obama were falling all over themselves to support and prop-up the Honduran Marxist dictator-wannabe, Manuel Zelaya back in 2009. I never could figure out why they would create such blatantly unflattering, pro-Marxist optics for the Obama regime for a small country like Honduras. Now it all makes perfect sense. Zelaya attempted to overthrow the Honduran constitution and install himself as dictator for life, a la Hugo Chavez. The Honduran Congress AND Supreme Court followed their Constitutional Rule of Law to the letter and removed Zelaya. Within hours Obama and Clinton were threatening Honduras and demanding that the Marxist dictator Zelaya be re-installed. Now we know why. Obama and Clinton were arming Zelaya and were coordinating with Zelaya to run arms through Honduras. Presumably the deal was that some of the arms would stay with Zelaya and most would move into Mexico from the South. Then, Obama and Clinton could "find" U.S. guns in Southern Mexico and Central America, and thus use these optics to bolster their false contention that "90%" of Mexican guns were sourced directly from the U.S. "See? U.S. guns are all the way down in Chiapas State and Guatemala. U.S. guns are everywhere! The Second Amendment simply is not feasible any longer!"

I remember that around 2009 to 2010, every Democratic Lawmaker in Washington was screaming about the United States Guns and Machine Guns showing up in Mexico, and that it was caused by that Wicked 2nd AMENDMENT!!! and that it was high time to repeal the 2nd AMENDMENT!! Anybody remember that massive Outcry and the exact appeals? I know Pelosi and Reid were carrying that Talking Point everyday!
I believe “FAST and FURIOUS” was developed by the DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP to DESTROY Our 2nd Amendment RIGHTS!!!
Only now are We learning the Facts and now the WHITE HOUSE has directly implicated themselves by declaring Executive Privilege at this very late moment! WOW!! IT REALLY STINKS!!

0bama orchestrated Fast and Furious, directed the foot-dragging when investigators began asking questions, and is now trying to cover up. He definitely has committed Impeachable offenses - IF you can impeach someone who is in the office illegally! His actions amount to TREASON!

I was just getting ready to post the same thing. I believe the documents will show that F&F was initially an excuse to take away gun rights, and Obama, Pelosi, and Reid were in on it. You are correct, Pelosi kept hammering about how so many of our guns were showing up in Mexico, and we need more regulations (bans). I wonder if YouTube still has her saying as such.

When the truth comes out—and it will—it will be a real cesspool of lies, corruption, drugs, and sex. It will make people sick when it comes out. Once out of power—the truth will roll out—Many books will be penned, many will see the inside of Prison. Obama will get off—but none of his friends. He will pen a book no one will read, Michele will divorce him, he will be reduced to teaching—he will never get back his lawyer’s ticket. He may try to re-enter politics but fail. He will die young and alone. That’s what I predict.

I checked YouTube!! WOW!! There is a virtual avalanche of YouTube Posts about the Democratic Attaks on the @nd Amendment Three Years ago to be precise! They tried to cram a Firearms Registration Law thru during the Cramming of the Stimulus Bill thru Congress! I searched using: “Pelosi’s Attak on the 2nd Amendment!” Pelosi, Reid, Obama et all were all attacking Our 2nd Amendment Rights as the primary Reason that waves of United States Firearms were in Mexican Cartel Possesion and were murdering poor innocent Mexicans!
This Really Stinks the High HELL!!

You hit it on the head. This was a behind the curtain attempt to create a national emergency about the 2nd admedment and steer the public into agreeing into banning all weapons from the American people. The only thing that is stopping Obama creating a Marxist nation is an armed citizen army.
This man is all about the power and lies. God help us if he gets another term.

It’s worse than that, probably. The US wants peace south of the border, and will help one of the cartels “win” in order to get it.

The question is, what will the winning cartel give the US govt?

Pelosi and Reid abolishing the Second Amendment is a common sense act of self-preservation.

Let's face it, we'd form a line.

I believe that it was March or April of 2010 that the violence in Mexico was all the drive-bys were talking about. Front page everywhere for about a week then, *poof* Gone.

Your belief that it was all over the Media in March or April of 2010 makes alot of sense since an earlier post points out that FASTand FURIOUS started in September, 2009.
Then, the RATS dropped it like a Hot Potato!

Yep! And, I bet it's all documented! I imagine the emails were all giddy, relating how they can kill two birds with one stone. They were willing to have people killed to get rid of guns, and that is a helluva lot worse than Watergate. They knew our own guns, compliments of this administration, was killing hundreds of people, and they had the gall to blame American citizens for what they were doing. It's absolutely high crimes and misdemeanors, impeachment and even prison for anyone involved.

Yes he can. Although he would probably resign before then.

The House will have to go to court to get Zero’s executive privilege claim overturned. The courts will then order Justice to hand over the documents.

If at that point, Zero and/or Holder refuse, or claim the documents are missing or destroyed, they could both face impeachment.
