Who is the president hiding?(Gunwalker)
9 July, 2012 | Robert Gardner, Henderson

Posted on 07/09/2012 6:26:13 AM PDT by marktwain

I have followed the Fast and Furious gunrunning scandal investigation since it began.

At first, President Barack Obama tried to blame “unscrupulous gun dealers” along our southern border. We wouldn’t have known any differently had it not been for Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Special Agent John Dodson. Dodson testified that someone in our government forced gun dealers to sell assault weapons to known straw purchasers who had ties to Mexican drug cartels.

Guns from this fiasco have turned up at many crime scenes, including the one in which a Border Patrol agent was killed. Some testified on Capitol Hill that more than 1,000 weapons still unaccounted for will cause problems for at least another 10 years.

We don’t know who authorized this mess. Not one government employee has been fired over it. Attorney General Eric Holder has testified he never discussed Fast and Furious with President Obama. Why, then, did Obama claim executive privilege? Who is he hiding?

Oh, this is so silly...Who is he hiding? The answer is abundantly obvious...its the man in the mirror he loves to adore so much.

I think the answer to this question is pretty easy. The President is protecting himself. We haven’t seen him protect anyone else, except for Holder. Democrats should be very worried because he will throw them all under the bus to protect himself.

I remember Watergate. When that started to come to light you couldn’t get away from it, - and NO ONE WAS KILLED! Now we have a black gangsta in the white hut and people are getting killed and there’s absolutely NO mention of it by the so-called “news” organizations! You’d think that just one journalist would smell the opportunity for a Pulitzer and do some digging!

PULITZER???!? Get real. Any reporter who tries to do actual reporting on Murdergate would be HATED by the rest of the Marxist Media Press. They would be shunned. There would be NO pulitzer, EVER.

The Marxist Media Press exists for TWO REASONS -- to run cover for leftist, communist, gangster government, and to tear down and destroy anyone who might pose a threat to the goal of communism, universal radical Islam, and massive depopulation.

One question I have no heard asked yet (I may have just missed it) is, what became of the money gained from the sale of these weapons to the Mexican cartels?

Follow the money.

I wonder where Zapatas partner, Victor Avila, is and what his account is.

It's Hillary.

The idea was to blame Bush if/when caught.

It appears to be a plan to make it appear as if Bush was involve in a guns for dope operation like Clinton was involved in back in the 1980’s, part of which was Iran-Contra from the Reagan/Bush years.

It was Hillary's orchestrating the cover up the guns for dope operation that has kept Hillary out of the WH.

Little Miss Vindictive is trying to get even with Bush.

The plan had severe enough consequences that the DoJ had to approve it at the highest levels, to wit Holder.
Holder’s jurisdiction is domestic.
The plan had a major international component.
The plan could not proceed without State Department approval, to wit Hillary would have Holder’s head on a platter if she didn’t approve it.
The two could not make such an arrangement without knowing informed approval by one person.
What’s he hiding? his approval of treason and war.

I wonder about that too. I am also curious about the wounds he received. Bullet wounds can cause life-long disabilities. A pretty good cause for a lawsuit in this case.

AFAIK, the money went to the dealers who were directed to make a sale they didn’t want to. Same profit as if an upstanding citizen had just walked in and bought the items.

If there’s more money involved, it’s not in a traceable form.

I wonder if he feels they were set up.

On some level I wonder if he might have been part of a set up since he seems have gone to ground. Was he involved with the Zapata report on F&F guns that were interdicted shortly before the ambush?

If it was a setup, or he just thinks it was, that would give him good reason to lay low. Especially since absolutely no one is being held accountable for the F&F mess. A sitting president and his AG make for pretty intimidating enemies.

Thanks. Though that is very brief, it is the most info I have seen about Avila.

Thank God for men like John Dodson...

Thank you for jumping on this every time you see it.

Folks, Brian Terry was not the only person killed by Fast and Furious. ICE Agent Jaime Zapata also perished because of this attempted, “under the radar”** attack on our Second Amendment rights.

Not to forget that hundreds of Mexican citizens were also murdered as a result of the guns “walked” into Mexico.

Laz, in your opinion, how did the Marxists get 100% in control of the Main Stream Media? Are all the folks that are supposed to be on our side so corrupted that they have been blackmailed into submission?

I've never been able to put a handle on it. It just seems impossible.

Gotta empathize with good men like that who try to do the right thing while working in a system full of corrupt sharks. That might be more dangerous than the street criminals they are charged with going after.

Thank you. I appreciate that. It infuriates me to know that our government is so callously playing with people’s lives like this. They claim they can’t control the stinking border when in fact they are making things worse, on purpose, for cheap political gain.

Indeed, but I wouldn’t call $16 Trillion “cheap.” Sadly.

It’s going to be a long time before we get out of that hole, even after we have divested ourselves of the digger.
