On Sunday night, Spanish-language station Univision— one of the only networks to provide critical coverage of President Obama’s failures in office instead of cream-puff interviews — broke open the Fast and Furious investigation, revealing new evidence of weapons smuggling and displaying shocking new images of the bloody aftermath of the government-supported gun-smuggling program. The Univision report undermines the integrity of the recently released DOJ inspector general report on Operation Fast and Furious, already heavily criticized as an attempt to whitewash criminal activity within the Obama administration.
This may be good but it's worth noting that all civilians are prohibited from owning guns in Mexico. Therefore all guns entering the country go to the criminals. The presence of guns in the hands of free and honest citizens prevents crime. So....while Mexico may be helping us pursue Mssr. Holder & Co. they are still very wrong headed about gun control.
I had never heard of project gang walker or project gun walker until this article. Those are very scarey because they are being used in select big cities and states for the purpose of harming citizens to turn the population against gun use.
And Hispanics will overwhelmingly vote for Obambi despite the fact he runs guns to drug cartels so that innocent Mexicans can be slaughtered. Hispanics voting for Obambi is like Jews voting for Hitler. It makes no sense at all.
This is all well and good. But it is just a set up to clear the way for some Mexicans to sue the American taxpayer for deaths caused by these guns. The truth is, whatever murders were committed with Fast and Furious guns would have been committed anyway. There are plenty of other guns in the hands of Mexican criminals.
Just like American Jews, Hispanics must realize that Obama, his administration and the Democrat Party are not their friends and do not care. The American Media is a disgrace and should be ashamed the it took the work of Univision to reveal the details of this bloody atrocity and cover up by the Obama administration. The American Media is complicit and in collusion obviously with Washington Democrats in the cover up as well.
They call AK47s "Goat's horns"! Maybe Obama and Holder thought the cartel was shopping for real goat horns? They aren't that bright, you know? They probably don't know many Mexicans. Or, they didn't get it. Busy raising funds, and what not.
Univision was co-founded by and owned by - until a few years ago when he sold his interest - Jerry Perenchio, a former Hollywood agent and promoter (his roster included Elizabeth Taylor) - who is a huge supporter of Republican PACs and candidates and is fiercely anti-illegal immigrant.
A. Jerrold Perenchio, known as "Jerry," made the bulk of his fortune selling Spanish-language broadcaster Univision for $13.7 billion in 2007 to a consortium led by fellow Los Angeles billionaire Haim Saban.
FTA: Univision also uncovered evidence of weapons being smuggled from Texas: two gun-smuggling programs similar to Fast and Furious are rumored to have put thousands of additional weapons in the cartels’ hands in operations larger than Fast and Furious.
On June 6, 2010 two illegals Damaso Rueda-Cabrera (20) and Arnulfo de la Cruz Sanchez were stopped by Laredo Police with 147 assault rifles and 10,000 rounds of ammunition. The were charged with immigration crimes and served 10 and 45 days respectively.
On Aug 1, 2012 Damaso Rueda-Cabrera (30) and Rene Chapa were sentenced to 80 months and 70 months for arms trafficing. The story is that Chapa hired an under cover ICE agent to transport the guns and ammunition and the trap was sprung when Cabrera met the truck.
Sounds to me like this was clean up after Fast and Furious blew up.
I don`t believe the country at large cares one wit about F & F, Benghazi or any other Scandal of the Week. These things come and go during the standard `news cycles`. Since most people get their `news` from Big Media and BM doesn`t cover the story properly, these things tend to fade away after time. People simply get tired of hearing about it and move on. Holder was found in contempt of Congress back in late June, almost 100 days ago. What has happened since? N-o-t-h-i-n-g. Nothing will come from the Benghazi fiasco either. It`s business as usual. Congressional investigations do nothing.
It's amazing that to get a fair/truthful report of events we are forced to go to foreign reporting. Outside of Fox witch I think is getting more liberal I start by thinking anything I read or hear is probably a contrived report of half truths or misleading facts(lies).
Again, it all boils down to network media millionaire "stars", like 1% Diane Sawyer, Scott Pelley, Brian Williams acting as the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, censoring the real news like TRAITORS TO THE TRUTH, protected by their MAFIA MEDIA union contracts, big salaries, all the networks, all lobbying sponsors, and Fox TV EVEN, all the same "containment safe" guys or they would not be allowed on the air. Glenn Beck, Andrew Napolitano became too straightforward, honest and lost out, lost their shows, too direct, TV including FoxTV, is "Containment City" so many subjects are taboo, blocked out, never discussed. We're in giant economics and dictator-czar-executive order TROUBLE and you will not see hear any of it on TV. Only the INTERnet is open city to the truth, and your average person TV watcher just sits there with fast food, big sugared drinks and soaks up the brainwashing from the Gobellesian Sawyers and Lettermans every night. The internet allows in, does not bar information from the outside, like Canada Free Press, and a few of the UK sites
If Romney is nimble he will say to Univision immediately that he will prosecute those responsible no matter how far up it goes. They are very passionate about this and it's a big issue to them. Obama will just make more of the same excuses that they aren't buying. He's liable to lose a lot of the Hispanic vote over this if Romney handles it right.
Twenty gunmen hired to assassinate a bunch of seemingly innocent teenagers? Hired by whom? What a perfect way to start a wave of outrage against guns. If the government has sunk low enough to hold a secret, illegal gun sale, it's also low enough to use them. Washington has been infiltrated by the entire Chicago black crime syndicate.
President Obama’s brain trust on Afghanistan does not know much the U.S. spends on the war each year or the American cost in lost lives on the battlefield. This embarrassing lack of basic knowledge from State Department and Pentagon experts on Afghanistan at a House hearing Wednesday prompted even a Democrat to say he was stunned. The setting was the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The Issue: Afghanistan and the transition to fewer U.S. troops post-2014. The witnesses: James F. Dobbins, State’s special representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan; Donald Sampler, assistant to the administrator, U.S. Agency for International Development, which provides
By clearing the decks of the bipartisan budget deal, some political observers say, the GOP establishment is banking on the idea that giving up ground in the spending battle now will pay off over the long run by allowing Republicans to avoid getting punished for another government shutdown. According to this scenario, if there’s no government shutdown, Republicans can focus on the 2014 congressional elections and bank on the growing opposition to Obamacare to strengthen their numbers on Capitol Hill. In the best case, they could add the Senate to their control of the House and be in a better
In explaining the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, President Obama told Chris Matthews he had discovered that “we have these big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly.” An interesting discovery to make after having consigned the vast universe of American medicine, one-sixth of the U.S. economy, to the tender mercies of the agency bureaucrats at the Department of Health and Human Services and the Internal Revenue Service. Most people become aware of the hopeless inefficiency of sclerotic government by, oh, age 17 at the department of motor vehicles. Obama’s late discovery is
Tea party groups and fiscal conservatives wasted no time Wednesday in savaging a bipartisan budget agreement negotiated between House Republicans and Senate Democrats, drawing an unusually angry response from House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican. All sides were rating the winners and losers in the deal struck a day earlier between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray, Washington Democrat. The modest deficit-cutting deal had some sweeteners for defense contractors and oil drillers, while air travelers, federal workers and some corporate executives would take a hit.
The White House blasted Republicans on Wednesday for criticizing President Obama’s decision to shake hands with Cuban leader Raul Castro. “There used to be a pretty important principle, that originated in the Republican Party, I believe, that partisan politics should stop at the water’s edge,” said White House deputy press secretary Joshua Earnest. “It’s unfortunate that we did see a number of Republicans yesterday who criticized the president for a handshake.” Mr. Obama shook hands with Mr. Castro on stage in South Africa at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela on Tuesday. The U.S. does not have diplomatic relations with
FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio — It doesn’t take long to realize that Jim Majoros is passionate about his job, as he ponders the hue of a new hunting rifle he’s working on. “I’m going to call it ‘Persephone,’ ” he said, referring to the Greek goddess. “It’s going to be light green in color, you know, more soft, but for women who want to hunt.” Business is brisk for gunsmiths such as Majoros, who repairs and customizes firearms in this small Lake Erie beach town east of Cleveland. This year, more than 82,000 new concealed-carry weapons licenses were issued in Ohio
House Republicans appeared Wednesday to be rallying around an $85 billion deal to avert another government shutdown, brushing off complaints from their right wing that the effort would trade immediate spending cuts for less-certain long-term savings. After conducting a series of closed-door briefings and polling members during a late-afternoon vote, GOP leadership aides confidently predicted that the deal struck between House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Budget Committee Chairman Patty Murray (D-Wash.) would sail through the House when it comes to a vote Thursday. The moment seemed to mark a potentially significant shift by House Republicans away
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there. Photos of the day Uruguay legalizes marijuana, Kiev police pull back from protesters, aging U.S. prison population and more. Tuesday´s Photos of the day Would you write this way about a man? About O’Reilly himself? At least that’s what Megyn Kelly might ask at
In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
