The Never Ending Story
Obama andd Holder got smacked in the head by Univision. Fast and Furious, along with other gunrunning in Florida and Texas, were on the menu. How can anyone with a conscience not feel a great deal of anger over this egregious program instituted by our own government? How can this ever be considered justifiable and where is the media on this issue? Is it any wonder at all the majority of Americans do not trust government or the media. Massive cover up on a grand scale. Some things done by the pols can never be forgiven, this is one of them. More from PJMedia:
Operation Castaway, run with the same bloody-minded approach as Operation Fast and Furious, provided more than 1,000 guns to cartels via the Tampa ATF. Those guns leaked out across Honduras, Colombia, and Venezuela, according to the U.S. veteran who smuggled some of the weapons, Hugh Crumpler:
“When the ATF stopped me, they told me the guns were going to cartels,” Hugh Crumpler, a Vietnam veteran turned arms trafficker, told Univision News. “The ATF knew before I knew and had been following me for a considerable length of time. They could not have followed me for two months like they said they did, and not know the guns were going somewhere, and not want for that to be happening.”
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.

Basing war policy on the denial of facts is never smart, and the blow back can be severe. It’s quite possible that President Obama will be more frank about this conflict in his second term; whatever happens in November the threat will be too real and our efforts to deal with it will be too far-reaching for the United States government to pretend that we don’t face a global security challenge as serious as a war.
Of course, we are all hoping there won’t be a second term for Obama. In light of Benghazi and, Fast and Furious, there is no good reason to re-elect Obama, especially when he continually lies to the American public. Does anyone honestly believe Obama and his cohorts are capable of telling the truth?
The intelligence community — which Clapper nominally heads — knew within hours that the attacks weren’t just coincidental blowback from a video that had been on the Internet for months. They were a direct assault on US diplomatic personnel, something that’s normally an act of war.
Indeed, everything about the administration’s response to the latest Islamic assault on civilized diplomatic norms is bunk, from the Cairo embassy’s initial tweets blaming the video for the riots to the press secretary’s bald-faced lying to the press corps, to the spectacle of the Office of National Intelligence volunteering as a scapegoat to protect the president’s reputation.
So behold the wreckage: not just the consulate in Libya, but the entire Obama foreign-policy “reset,” including his conciliatory 2009 speech to the Muslim world in Cairo.
With the debris still smoldering, the FBI, which has investigatory jurisdiction in these cases, is still not in Benghazi yet.
What I pointed out was, that it was appalling that Valerie Jarrett had a Secret Service detail. A staff member in the White House who is a senior aide and has a full Secret Service detail, even while on vacation, and nobody in the press had asked why. That has become more poignant, as I said, last week, when we discovered that we had an American ambassador, on the anniversary of 9/11, who was without adequate security—while she still has a Secret Service detail assigned to her full-time, at a massive cost, and no one in the media has gone to ask why.
I raised the question of David Plouffe. David Plouffe, who is the White House’s Senior Adviser—and was Obama’s campaign manager last time, he and [David] Axelrod sort of switched out, Axelrod going back to Chicago for the campaign—and just after it was announced that he was coming, an Iranian front group in Nigeria gave him $100,000 to give two speeches in Nigeria.
Now, let me tell you: There’s nobody that hands—no stranger gives you $100,000 and doesn’t expect something in return, unless you live in a world that I don’t. And no one has raised this in the mainstream media.
It’s been reported 15% of likely voters are still undecided, I am hoping we can convince a few of them to vote for Romney. America can do better then the current administration.
