Univision Breaks New Details
of Obama Admin’s Fast and
Furious Cover-Up

PJ Media, by Bob Owens

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/1/2012 7:22:21 AM

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.

Kudos for having cojones, Univision. I just wish everyone could see their reporting, not just Spanish speaking people.

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.

What poster 4 said. Gang walker? Are you kidding??

This scandal may be exponentilly bigger than anyone can conceptualize.

As more is revealed about it, the more it becomes obvious that the operation was designed as groundwork for a giant gun grab.

As for me, I intend to grab a tight rein.

The tough questions Univision asked Obama just exposed how worthless and corrupt the Liberal Plantation mainstream media are.

We have a infantile, complicit and toxic media.

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.


Although his original co-founders were Mexican and Univision is Spanish language, you could not call it a Mexican television station.

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.

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.

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair.

After accepting Kathleen Sebelius´ resignation Friday, Obama nominated Sylvia Burwell, the former Office of Management and Budget director.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out.

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
