The Biggest Scandal in U.S. History

Pages: 1 2

Forget executive privilege, contempt of Congress, “fast and furious,” how many documents the government has produced and who said what to whom on which date.

The Obama administration has almost certainly engaged in the most shockingly vile corruption scandal in the history of the country, not counting the results of Season Eight on “American Idol.”

Administration officials intentionally put guns into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, so that when the guns taken from Mexican crime scenes turned out to be American guns, Democrats would have a reason to crack down on gun sellers in the United States.

Democrats will never stop trying to take our guns away. They see something more lethal than a salad shooter and wet themselves.

But since their party was thrown out of Congress for the first time in nearly half a century as a result of passing the 1994 “assault weapons ban,” even liberals know they were going to need a really good argument to pass any limitation on guns ever again.

So it’s curious that Democrats all started telling the same lie about guns as soon as Obama became president. In March 2009, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced to reporters on a trip to Mexico: “Since we know that the vast majority, 90 percent of that weaponry (used by Mexican drug cartels), comes from our country, we are going to try to stop it from getting there in the first place.”

As she sentimentally elaborated on Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren show: “The guns sold in the United States, which are illegal in Mexico, get smuggled and shipped across our border and arm these terrible drug-dealing criminals so that they can outgun these poor police officers along the border and elsewhere in Mexico.”

Suddenly that 90 percent statistic was everywhere. It was like the statistic on women beaten by their husbands on Super Bowl Sunday.

CBS’ Bob Schieffer asked Obama on “Face the Nation”: “It’s my understanding that 90 percent of the guns that they’re getting down in Mexico are coming from the United States. We don’t seem to be doing a very good job of cutting off the gun flow. Do you need any kind of legislative help on that front? Have you, for example, thought about asking Congress to reinstate the ban on assault weapons?”

At a Senate hearing, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said: “It is unacceptable to have 90 percent of the guns that are picked up in Mexico and used to shoot judges, police officers and mayors … come from the United States.”

And then, thanks to Fox News — the first network to report it — we found out the 90 percent figure was complete bunkum. It was a fabrication told by William Hoover, of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATF), and then spread like wildfire by Democrats and the media.

Mexican law enforcement authorities send only a fraction of the guns they recover from criminals back to the U.S. for tracing. Which guns do they send? The guns that have U.S. serial numbers on them. It would be like asking a library to produce all their Mark Twain books and then concluding that 90 percent of the books in that library are by Mark Twain.

You begin to see why the left hates Fox News so much.

    Hopefully sometime in the future we will see 0sambo, Holder, and Hillerous Hillery in orange suits standing before a federal judge announcing them guilty of crimes against humanity, and receive a swift judgement of Death By Hanging for their TREASONOUS deeds….

    • Lindi Cole

      Thank you, Jimi for telling the truth! Sedition is against the Constitution, which Osambo is sworn to understand and uphold.

    • Raymond in DC

      Jimi boy, you don't help your argument when you use obvious racial references (e.g. 0sambo).

      • Carol Setliff

        'Osambo' isn't a racial reference. I think he meant it to sound like 'Rambo.' In any case, let's not hold our breaths waiting for justice to be done!

        • Will

          He meant it to sound like "Rambo" huh? Wouldn't "o'rambo" do the trick just fine?

          He was obviously referencing "sambo" not "Rambo"

          Sorry to point out that racism still exists in the world.

      • Viet Vet

        One has to fight racism with racism. There are no bigger racists in the country today than the one's who are constantly using charges of racism to stymie debate.

    • USAF Vet

      Be careful Jimi, someone in Texas recently put up a YouTube video expressing similar sentiments and the Secret Service showed up at his house giving the hombre third degree over his implied threat to the president, despite his repeated assertions he wanted Barry tried and sentenced to hang by a court of law.

    An example of the liberal's attitude regarding guns is presently demonstrated in Chicago….wait for it, that bastion of crooks and deception, Illinois. The murder rate has increased by 38% with more shootings and killings last year than the number of troops killed in Aghganistan. Gang violence is unprecedented but Obama buddy Rham Emanuel's answer? Assign 200 Chicago cops to provide extra security for Obama's visit to attend the wedding of his BFF (best friend forever) Valerie Jarrett's daughters wedding. In well over a year I've yet to read about assigning an extra 200 cops to combat the gang violence. He has tried to pass unconstitutional gun control ordinances and laws and impose, as Democrats seem to do, taxes and fees in order to have your 2nd Amendment rights. I want to know what old Hillary knew and when she knew it and did she suggest the implementation of Fast and Furious.

    • Asher

      Once again Coulter is right on the treasonous actions of F&R. This is not Chicago, the windy city full of culture, any more… its gangland…a Tough area for the police….People hate to go there anymore for fear of riots!

  • Alexander Gofen

    With all the ugliness of the Fast and Furious, one (like Ms. Coulter) must be a particularly blind water carrier for the treasonous party – in order to call it "The Biggest Scandal in U.S. History", especially now.

    The really Biggest Scandal in U.S. History is the entire illegitimate presidency of the impostor and commander-in-thief Obama/Soetoro himself. And now even foreign statesmen such as Lord Monckton acknowledge it:

    However America seems still not noticing that its pants are soiled and the stench is unbearable:

    Yet the day of Judgement will come, and the gallows will be wide…

    • Amused

      yes "judgement day " …indeed , just watch out, that people like you Alexander , dont find yourselves in line for those same gallows .

  • James

    Actually US history is full to brim with scandals. But if I had to pick one, I wouldn't go for some illegal arms supply to gagsters, god that is in US's DNA – to supply arms to and prop up terrorists. I means just look at your unconditional support to Pakistan, the biggest terrorist state there is. Therein lays the bare bones of US foreign policy – helping and arming terrorist states. No, for picking the biggest scandal in US history, I'd go for the illegal, ill planned, ill thought out and wholly damaging war on Iraq. USA is the biggest terror sponsoring state in the world, bar none.

    • David Clumpner

      Sorry Ann, James, and Alexander….
      You're all, just like mainstream pharma and medicine: Attempting to protract the symptoms and effects instead of dealing with the source of the problem.
      It essentially began on Jekyll Island almost 100 yrs ago and the same nefarious bastards, licking their
      chops, are making final preparations for a new global digital currency which will be the final nail in the
      Keep on obfuscating while they close in for the kill Ann…You're either asleep, naive, or another closet

    • Chris Nichols

      So killing a dictator who gassed the Kurds, invaded two of his neighbors, violated U.N. sanctions(which the left loves), paid money to Palestinian terrorists, actually sponsoring terrorism, and who actually had terrorist training camps in his country at Salman Pak and Kurdistan is akin to sponsoring terrorism. We never armed Saddam Hussein either, the Soviets did, we aren't arming terrorists in Pakistan either. Get out of my country, today, please.

    • Sage on the Stage

      …and without any provocation, Saddam fired a SCUD missile at Israel; in addition to gassing Kurds. supporting Palestinian terrorists,, and torturing his own people. Get out of America…and discover the true terrorist states.

    • Amused

      Indeed the run up to war , replete with phony "weapons of mass destruction " , the disregard for CIA reports that what would happen , DID IN FACT- DID happen after toppling Saddam . And to go so far as to outting ONE OF OUR OWN INTELLIGENCE AGENTS due to a report her legislator husband made which disagreed with the Bush Admin was seekling to get us into the war , cost us the precious blood of our sons and daughters,.and a trillion dollar disaster .
      Coulter would make a good Comic Book writer .

  • davarino

    Wow, is there nothing the left wont do to get their way? Thats all they do is lie and cheat and steal. Its amazing the Rangel isnt behind bars.

    • Maxie

      Apparently you've never heard of the Left's notorious Double Standard. Their felonies are OK because "their intentions were good". Republican good deeds are bad because their intentions are always evil (Racist, bigoted, homophobic, blah, blah, blah).

      • Amused

        LOL….who are you kidding , the largest CRIME DEMOGRAPHIC per capita in all of the US , resides among he 500 or so Democrat AND REPUBLICAN lawmakers we sent to Washington .Your statement is uniformed and juvenile at best.

  • Spider

    I will bet anyone that the documents that Holder is hiding have Houseins, Hillarys and Holders finger prints all over them.

  • waltjr

    And yet Barack Hussein Obama is declaring "Executive Privilege", this should expose yet another Obama's true self, MURDER, was caused by the decision the Barack Hussein Obama Administration and his flunky AG Eric Holder made with the Fast and Furious Program. The Obama Administration and all the Democrats who stand by their decision to do the Fast and Furious care nothing about a United States Citizen Brian Terry or the Mexican Citizens, which ironically the Democrats love to use the Hispanic community for votes, yet care nothing about the deaths of many Mexican citizens, only the strong desire of the Democrats and Obama to ban guns in the United States, at any cost, human or financially.

    • PhillipGaley

      "The only people who are unwilling to disclose, are the ones who have something to hide."–who said that?

  • PhillipGaley

    Is Ann "a tare" because, she isn't rooting for Ron Paul?

  • PhillipGaley

    This aft on C-SPAN, Eleanor Holmes Norton said that, the Repbs are simply grand-standing, and are responsible for A. BRIAN TERRY's death because the administration has not been given the "tools" which it needs to control gun-violence; so, . . . there we have it, . . . and besides, plenty of papers–thousands of pages–have been "turned over", . . .

  • Maxie

    Fast & Furious is now moot. With the Courts decision to uphold all aspects of Obamacare they have just declared the Constitution null and void. Obama is free to do whatever he wants including nullification of the Second Amendment by Executive fiat. Seig heil!

    • amused

      oh yea , but y'all were singing a different tune when SCOTUS declared "corporations are people too " . Dont you know anything ??? The fact that in Arizona , a place where the second Amendment is ANYTHING BUT "nullified " facilitates straw sales of firearms , no matter what …..anyone can buy ANY amount of long rifles , handguns , and transfer them to ANYONE else 10 minutes after they buy them . There's much more to Coulter's ……" BIGGEST SCANDAL IN US HIDSTORY , than hers and your small minds can comprehend …lol….but it surely does qualify for a good Obama basher .

  • Anamah

    The biggest scandal in US history is a fraudulent administration, a dangeous unamerican mob in power playing a master piece to replace reality and willing to destroy America, Israel and the Western system based on freedom. and individual rights.

  • David Clumpner

    Wondering why my post (fourth one down and published day before yesterday), has been completely removed.

  • BS77

    Welcome to Orwell Land…..Euro Socialism, Sky High Taxes, Nanny State busybody bureaucrats at every turn….crazy liberal immigration chaos……This is the same country that won World War II????????????????????

  • Amused

    Oh poor ,poor Anne Coulter , suffers the same lziness and self-impposed ignorance to facts as does most of her contemporaries , and sycophant book buyers . The same immunity to facts , taints everything out of your mouth Anne Coulter . "Biggest scandal in U.S. history " …hardly , but it will sell your books Anne , and that is your main agenda .And there are no shortages of mindless jerks who take your word as Bioble , who do not possess the will , integrity , nor the intelligence to look beyond the pile of B.S. you place under their noses . And in Washington , the majority of Republican Lawmakers , who allegedly for the most part are educated ,and lawyers [ with the exception of most teabaggers ] display the same cognitive dissonance which is endemic to most REPO-CONS .

    • Viet Vet

      Teabaggers are queers, a democrap constituency.

  • Amused

    So for all those who seek to expand their intellectual horizons beyond your opinionated , partisan half-truths and outright lies regarding " Fast and Furious " ….here are the FACTS [ yes that's an alien word to folks like you and your sycophants ] .

    • Viet Vet

      LOL@fortune….you are easily propagandized aren't you.
