A year ago this week, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered. He died protecting his country from brutal Mexican gangsters. Two AK-47 assault rifles were found at his death site. We now know the horrifying truth: Agent Terry was killed by weapons that were part of an illegal Obama administration operation to smuggle arms to the dangerous drug cartels. He was a victim of his own government. This is not only a major scandal; it is a high crime that potentially reaches all the way to the White House, implicating senior officials. It is President Obama’s Watergate.
Operation Fast and Furious was run by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and overseen by the Justice Department. It started under the leadership of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. Fast and Furious enabled straw gun purchases from licensed dealers in Arizona, in which more than 2,000 weapons were smuggled to Mexican drug kingpins. ATF claims it was seeking to track the weapons as part of a larger crackdown on the growing violence in the Southwest. Instead, ATF effectively has armed murderous gangs. About 300 Mexicans have been killed by Fast and Furious weapons. More than 1,400 guns remain lost. Agent Terry likely will not be the last U.S. casualty.
The answer is impeachment. Why if Nixon could be impeached for nosing around others offices, why Obama cannot be impeached when his henchman arranged for the murder of at least one federal officer and probably more will die before the mess they created is cleaned up.
Watergate was merely a bunch of ex-CIA guys breaking into Democratic Headquarters in DC; a 4th-rate crime. Nixon tried to help cover it up. That was the “high crime”; obstruction of justice, which is EXACTLY what this little old administration is conducting from “bad” memories, to lying letters of explanation. To stonewalling discovery, to shifting employees around, to acting with contempt toward Congress, to the murder of a border agent.
No one got murdered in Watergate.
And the lesson of Watergate is that the president is NOT above the laws he swears to uphold in his oath of office. And Mr. Holder and the o White House is not above the law, either.
And in case you need reminding. Three articles of impeachment were voted against Richard Nixon: one for obstruction of justice, one for collusion/conspiracy in the cover-up, and one for LYING TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
Nixon had some sense of honor and resigned. And had he not, the Senate would no more have convicted him than the Senate would convict Clinton, whose high crimes and misdemeanors were essentially the same, except for the lying to the American people, because the Democrats have made such a common occurrence of lying to us that we’ve become inured to the blatant horror of such presidential behavior (or anyone else’).
It is no secret that President Obama dislikes the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights (should be called the Bill of Restrictions). President Obama would love to get rid of the 2nd Amendment. In April 2009, just after taking the oath of office, President Obama told President Calderon of Mexico that many guns were being purchased in the US and then delivered to the Mexican drug lords. Now we are learning that the ATF and DEA set up operation Fast and Furious. We are also learning that this program was designed to provide a reason to change US gun laws. The first thing a dictator does is restrict gun ownership to the government.
History will record the Obama years as a major tragedy that inflicted damage to the rights and freedoms of born Americans for the non-existent rights of criminal illegal’s that are invading the US. Either we stand and protect our borders or we buckle to this experiment of the UN’s called human migration. The US is losing the battle because our elected government has joined the UN in doing away with national borders to allow the free transit of people as if they were migrating birds. We need leadership now and we cannot wait until Nov. 2012; Obama is out to destroy us all for some internationalist vision of one world governance.
If Eric Holder were an honorable man, he would resign. If he were Japanese, he would kill himself.
He is a disgrace to our legal system, but so is his boss. 2012 can’t come soon enough. I can see it from my front porch.
