This past Wednesday, Barrack Hussein Obama declared “Executive Privilege” in an apparent effort to prevent the truth from being exposed about his involvement in the death of a United States border patrol officer. This is just another of a long list of unconstitutional actions made by this amateur currently occupying the White House.
If you aren’t familiar with this subject, let me share a synopsis. In 2009, the Obama Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) agency purposely sold powerful firearms to Mexican drug cartels. They steered these cartels to purchase the firearms in Arizona and then required the firearms dealers to complete the sell even when the individuals seeking the firearms weren’t able to pass the background check. The Obama team knew these guns would end up being used in violent crimes in Mexico. The strategy was simply this, let the drug dealers use the guns, then call attention to the fact that these were “American guns” being used … then “blame” America for the increased gun violence and lack of gun control laws in our country.
The ultimate goal was to call for increased gun laws on the American citizens by using these violent acts in Mexico as evidence of how inefficient our present gun laws are. You may recall that co-conspirator, Hillary Clinton, made that exact claim in early 2009. She went on national television and stated that “90 percent of all gun violence in Mexico was being committed with American guns”. She was one of the early adopters and promoters in the propaganda machine and was in full spin mode until something very tragic happened … a Border Patrol officer was killed. On December 14, 2010 Border Patrol Agent, Brian Terry was tragically killed by one of these guns. Shortly thereafter, several ATF agents came forward and told members of Congress that they had been ordered by Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department to “stand down” and allow firearms to be illegally sold to the Mexican drug cartels.
In January 2011, Republican Senator Charles Grassley began a Congressional investigation into what happened and why. In March 2011, Obama gave a television interview where he said that he and Eric Holder had not authorized the gun running and had only found out about Fast and Furious when they heard about it on a television news story. Since that date, several documents have been uncovered which contradict Mr. Obama’s statements. Eric Holder has repeatedly refused to cooperate with the investigation committee until another Republican Senator Darrell Issa informed the Attorney General that he would be found in contempt if he continued to refuse to submit the documents the committee had subpoenaed.
So, Wednesday, President Obama made the claim of “Executive Privilege” to prevent the truth from being known. These are the kinds of criminals we now have running the Democrat party in America. Communists like Obama, Clinton and Holder should be put on trial for treason. They don’t care what the American people want. They believe we shouldn’t have guns and they are willing to have our own people killed so long as they can advance their Socialist Democrat agenda. They are a disgrace to our heritage and our way of life and in my opinion so is anyone who supports them.
