Obama: Americans ďAre Root Cause of Violence Thatís Been Happening Here in MexicoĒ
Cybercast News Service ^ | May 3, 2013 | Fred Lucas

President Barack Obama, speaking in Mexico City on Friday, said the United States is responsible for much of the crime and violence in Mexico because of the demand for drugs and the illegal smuggling of guns across the southern border. …

Obama acknowledged the illegal smuggling of guns into Mexico by American criminals, but did not mention the Justice Department’s Operation Fast and Furious that allowed the flow of about 2,000 U.S. guns to Mexican drug trafficking organizations. Fast and Furious began in the fall of 2009 and was halted in December 2010 after two of the weapons from the DOJ gun walking program were found at the murder scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry. …

Another thing, Obama/Hillary/Geithner all three peddling the “MAGICAL” 90 percent of guns used in violence in Mexico were from USA.

Google/Bing check showed a ton of articles on this “90 percent” myth yet again.

US Americans are the cause of violence in Mexico?

to Obama and the rest of you democrat villains:

I work 10 hours a day to pay for your government’ s fake Global warming studies and welfare for 3rd world immigrants. I'm too busy working for that so now I'm causing violence in Mexico? I just want the gov to leave me alone and all I do is work and spend time reading.

This article up on Drudge now. I won’t post it because it covers same story, but I love the headline: “Obama Blames Mexican Violence on US Guns.”

“Every time I pass a car with a BO bumper sticker I wonder about how people could have been so misled.”

I remember learning about the NAZIs in school, and wondering how an entire country could have been so misled. Now we’re seeing it in our own country. First socialists get control of education and media. Then they enforce their version of PC, first with social stigma and later with deadly consequences. I figure we’re about 80% there.

It’s too bad that Mexico won’t have him arrested and at least questioned about his role in Fast & Furious. At any rate, an American president should be publicly pointing out that 90% (or whatever the number is) of illegal aliens that are in the United States are either Mexicans or cross through Mexico.

BO is so full of it, You can see it and smell it.
We are stuck with this bafoon.
The LSM will NEVER turn on him.

Those of us, the so called silent majority need to start getting involved and making noise. NOW. . . .

Has this POTUS impost er ever said anything nice about the USA?
Of course he didn't say anything about “Fast and Furious”.
The pubbies should make a commercial intertwining his speech with the facts of F&F Too bad the incompetent leader of the pubbies, Rance Priebus, doesn't have the cajones to do anything against Bam

The media has learned.

Reagan cut through the media by going directly to the American people.

Bush43 tried the same thing, so the media decided to stop broadcasting his speeches.

Clinton’s lies were fact-checked by Drudge, Fox and the alternative media, forcing the mainstream media to cover it.

Now, the mainstream media just ignores every lie Obama makes, including ignoring the alternative media.

At the same time, the number of people reading news of any kind is dropping like a rock. Alternative media is not breaking through anymore.

When 42% of the people think Obamacare is not law yet, you know we have a major problem.

News today comes from Comedy Central, Twitter and Facebook.

If you are on Twitter or Facebook, use your account to post stories. We either fight them where the battle is taking place or we will surely lose.

According to the last US Custom’s Agency report I read, the largest gun-running operation originates in Venezuela. The guns are smuggled to Central America and then into Mexico.

Why would a Mexican pay $1,000 for an American rifle when he can find something similar for half the price coming in from Guatemala?

Obama’s 90% claim is a big lie:

It was probably a leftist posing as one of harry reid's make-believe TEA Party anarchists. These leftists have been on this board since the beginning. They are all evil and ignorant but devious.
