More Real Guns Found In Phony Fast And Furious Scandal
Investor's Business Daily ^ | August 16, 2013 | IBD EDITORIALS

Media Bias: Rodeo clowns constitute a real crisis in media eyes, while deaths from the administration's gun-running operation to Mexican drug cartels are ignored as three more guns show up at crime scenes in Mexico.

The media have had a field day with a single, supposedly racist rodeo clown. But somehow, with few exceptions, mainstream media ignore the far-more-dangerous clowns in the Obama administration — those whose incompetence in the Fast and Furious scandal has led to human tragedy and deaths.

One exception is the relentless Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News, who reported Wednesday that three more weapons from Fast and Furious, the administration gift that keeps on killing, have turned up at violent crime scenes in Mexico. CBS News reported all three guns are WASR-10 762-caliber Romanian rifles.

Two were purchased by Fast and Furious suspect Uriel Patino in May and July of 2010. Sean Steward, who was convicted on gun charges in July 2012, purchased a third. The rifles have been traced to the Lone Wolf gun shop in Glendale, Ariz.

Details of exactly where the guns were found and what the crimes were aren't known at this point. And the Department of Justice, under Attorney General Eric Holder, is not about to divulge that information or any information about the recovery of Fast and Furious weapons at crime scenes.

The rifles have been traced to the Lone Wolf gun shop in Glendale, Ariz.

At EVERY point possible this shop had reservations about this shady, pie-in-the-sky operation, even when it seemed SORTA feasible. But it got darker and scarier, more and more shady all the time.

And each time they voiced worry about the legality and feasibility to these loose canons they were admonished by the Feds that it would all work out, that everything was on the up and up, and that The Lone Wolf would be HELPING and saving lives.

And sure enough, in the end the gummint whipped around and tried to pretend that all these guns had been sold totally out of the selfish profit movies of "out of control gun-runners".

If they had been one iota less careful --if they had been one micrometer less paranoid and had not SECRETLY RECORDED their interactions with the Feds, well, The Lone Wolf would have been completely up a creek without a legal paddle.

They would have been tried and convicted of being horrible, reckless gun-runners, instead of patriots trying to help.

In fact, the betrayal of trust was so huge and malevolent that it sounds just like the deepening NSA domestic spying scandal.

It sounds like the IRS scandal.

Basically you put these three together and you see a consistent pattern of shady bureaucrats giving off signs of HATING DEMOCRACY and very badly and needlessly betraying completely innocent people who trust the government and try to help the government.

Why does the US government HATE democracy?

""I think up to 100 Mexicans might have died (in Operation Fast and Furious) and also American agent Brian Terry," Univision reporter Jorge Ramos said to President Obama during a recent separate interview."

And little barry's answer to the reporter was...?

The feral government has declared its independence from us, the people.

Were they emptied and stored in a gun safe? If not, Babs Boxer may want to check in.
