RUSH: And looky here, folks, from the Cybercast News Service: "Obama Contributor, Who Helped Enact Assault Weapons Ban, Ran Fast and Furious" Did you hear that? Let me repeat that for you. Cybercast News Service: "Obama Contributor, Who Helped Enact Assault Weapons Ban, Ran Fast and Furious -- Dennis K. Burke, who as a lawyer for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee in the 1990s was a key player behind the enactment of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, and who then went on to become Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitanos chief of staff, and a contributor to Barack Obamas 2008 presidential primary campaign, and then a member of Obama's transition team focusing on border-enforcement issues, ended up in the Obama administration as the US attorney in Arizona responsible for overseeing Operation Fast and Furious.
But wait a minute. Obama didn't know anything about Fast and Furious, and Eric Holder didn't know anything about Fast and Furious. The Democrats tell us this. The media tells us, Obama says it. So Dennis Burke, who is as close to Obama as anybody can get, ran the assault weapons ban in 1994, worked for Janet Napolitano in Arizona, Obama's primary campaign in '08, transition team in '08, ends up as the regime's US attorney in Arizona responsible for overseeing Operation Fast and Furious. "From 1989 to 1994, he was a counsel for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, working in that capacity for several years on an assault weapons ban, which was finally enacted on Sept. 13, 1994 as the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. That act expired on Sept. 13, 2004." And they have been trying to get it back ever since.
A lot of people, and I'll throw my hat in this ring, think that's what Fast and Furious was all about. And Jay Carney, the White House spokeskid, says it's absurd to think Fast and Furious is about gun control. But Obama's lead US attorney in Arizona oversaw the program. Every day, every day it's a new threatening disaster that strikes this country.
The Congressional Black Caucus is trying to stop the murder investigation of BP Agent Terry.
Terry was white.
Weren’t MSM articles posted criticizing the “conspiracy theory” that F&F was related to encouraging gun control?
Sure seems to be the motivation.
And Mitt Romney implemented his own “Assault” weapons ban in MA AFTER the federal ban had been allowed to expire.
Dead on the money with that one.
When it comes to illegal immigration, the [name your favorite Left Wing Congressional] Caucus has all kinds of caring.
But when it comes to piles of dead Indigenous Pipples bodies at the hands of Holder and Obama, they couldn't care less.
Ain't that a little strange?
You’re leaving out a couple of hundred Mexicans that were killed. But the Congressional Black Caucus apparently doesn’t care about them, either.
There’s no question that Fast and Furious could be used as political support for assault weapons control. Whether that was the intention of some of the players remains to be seen.
I can already see it pretty good from over here.
I have read that the drug cartels have stated as policy, that after a shooting the weapons are to be dropped and left. The reason stated is that there is then no weapon to be discovered on the person and so no weapon to be matched to them with ballistic data. It makes sense if you have as much money as the cartels have. Consider also that with the rules in the U.S., there is less chance of the person being shot if they have no weapon on them.
Thank you Rush....
Dennis K. Burke... typical of the low down lying conscienceless POS that work for Eric Holder and Obama
The in-yo-face imbeciles in the CBC won't stand for any criticism of their black gods Hussein Obama and Eric Holder. The most idiotic statements made by Congress critters come from the black caucus
