A Lawless Presidency – Part 5 – National Rifle Association Getting Furious Fast over Fast and Furious

Perhaps the most lawless act of the Obama Presidency has been its role in Operation Fast and Furious. The National Rifle Association (NRA) has been out front in keeping this story in the public’s eye. While in Washington, DC, last month, I spoke with NRA Spokesperson Jacqueline Otto about Fast and Furious. She told me the NRA got “furious fast over Fast and Furious“.

Operation Fast and Furious first came to public attention shortly after the murder of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered during a firefight with Mexican gangsters in December of 2010. In the video below, I talk with Otto about the anti-gun agenda of the Obama Administration and how they created Fast and Furious to create a crisis in order to further their gun-control plans.

Otto acknowledged TexasGOPVote’s role in reporting this scandal early on and keeping the story alive until picked up nationally by CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson. Senator Charles Grassley and HouseOversight Committee Chairman Daryl Issa led the way for Congressional investigations leading to Contempt of Congress charges being levied against Eric Holder for his refusal to provide subpoenaed documents Congress required to carry out its Constitutionally mandated role of oversight.

On the political agenda of the Obama Administration, Otto explained, “Almost from the beginning there was a chorus of Administration officials using the term ‘90% of the firearms that were used in Mexican violence”. 90% of firearms they said were coming from America.

Otto continued, “What they didn’t tell us was that they were the ones sending them there – through Operation Fast and Furious. And, when that story came to light through the murder of Brian Terry and through the hundreds of Mexican citizens who have been murdered through this violence.

The proof of the gun control agenda soon followed. Otto explained, “They used the 90% figure to justify their new regulatory schemes, their new registration requirements and forcing these federally licensed firearms dealers that are in the border states to jump through more hoops, and do more paperwork and follow more requirements when they weren’t the ones at fault.

Many of the firearms dealers in Arizona and Texas asked to not participate in this program – fearing violence and death would result from this. They were coerced by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE, or ATF) to continue their participations. This was revealed in one of Senator Grassley’s earliest reports.

In my Feb, 2010 article titled, Agent Brian Terry Murder – DOJ Adds to the Cover-up, I wrote, “The licensed gun dealer who sold the weapons allegedly recovered at the scene of Agent Terry’s murder met with the ATF and the Assistant US Attorney as early as December 2009 to discuss his role as a licensed dealer during this investigation. Avila was allowed to continue his purchases, including two .50 caliber rifles as late as June 2010.

The investigation continues despite an internal DOJ Inspector General report which whitewashed Attorney General Eric Holder’s involvement in Fast and Furious. Ask yourself this, if Holder and Obama are not directly involved, how and why did Obama give Holder Executive Privilege on this scandal?

It is Time for a Fast and Furious Impeachment…

Impeachment not Firings - Justice must be done!

As previously reported by this author, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF, BATFE) have been involved in an ongoing criminal conspiracy covering up the circumstances that led to the death of US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry last December. Senator Charles Grassley has been investigating this case almost since it surfaced. The DOJ has been lying to him and his staff and stonewalling their investigation, according to my sources.

Recently Sen. Grassley appeared “On the Record” with Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren. During the interview, Van Susteren refers to a letter from the Assistant Attorney General, Ronald Welch where he committed several lies to Sen. Grassley. I had previously included that letter in one of my articles earlier this year, and the letter is attached below (2 pages).

Watch Sen. Grassley as he confirms with Van Susteren that DOJ has and is lying to Congress and stonewalling the investigation into this horrible crime against our nation.

Clearly this operation was ordered from the highest levels of our government. The Obama Administration came to office with an agenda to create tougher gun control laws. Operation Fast & Furious was conceived to create the impression that lax gun laws were leading to supplying Mexican drug cartels with weapons. This, in their sick belief system, would then give the administration the “moral authority” to create restrictions on Americans’ Constitutional Right to own weapons.

The House Judiciary Committee under the leadership of Congressman Lamar Smith (R-TX) should immediately begin hearings into this matter. These hearings should lead to the impeachment of the Obama appointed cabinet members who have had direct oversight of this ongoing criminal enterprise. Those being Attorney General Eric Holder, Assistant Attorney General Ronald Welch, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and the Former ATF Director, Kenneth Melson who has been conveniently reassigned to take the spotlight off of him.

I must disagree strongly with Senator Grassley on one point. In the interview, Sen. Grassley says the individuals involved in this operation need to be fired. This is not correct. They need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
