Sleep Well, Eric…

| September 21, 2012

It was no more than what we should have expected, this Department of Justice, in-house investigation of Operation Fast and Furious. Did any of us truly expect a DoJ inspector general to find against his boss? Or worse, against his boss’s boss? Are any among us surprised that lesser figures in the DoJ warren of agencies have been designated to take the fall? The apparent answer is no. But there is a more obvious response to this attempted whitewash that the Obama administration had best pay heed to.

There are millions upon millions of us out here who understand one simple basic truth, that there was no reason for those now-blamed federal underlings in Arizona and elsewhere to undertake such an operation. Regional offices of the federal government do not take it upon themselves to construct and implement criminal incursions into foreign countries. They do not do it. If you think they do you are either totally and ineptly unaware of how federal bureaucracies operate or you are so far in the bag for Obama and Holder that reason and truth matter not.

From the first glimmer of exposure to this Obama directed run against our Second Amendment, I have been pointing out that there was no credible rationale for Operation Fast and Furious except that it was designed by politicos high in the administration to use the statistics generated by Mexican drug cartel violence implementing American-supplied weaponry to justify stricter gun control, not in Mexico, but here in the United States. This rationale was ballyhooed by everyone from Obama, Hillary and Holder to lesser figures in the administration.

There is one simple reason for my very firm belief that we skeptics are dead-right on this issue: the feds have willingly admitted they had no plan, no operation nor any structure in place to track those weapons once they crossed the border; and since the Mexican authorities had been kept totally in the dark about the entire operation, the Federales were also unprepared to track these deadly implements that would be used subsequently to kill hundreds of Mexican nationals and some American agents. It was typical Democrat under-the-radar politics being masked and implemented by federal agents, ordered to do so from the very highest levels of the Obama administration, which I will wager we will sometime in the future discover to be an impeachable offense.

Eric Holder is whistling past the graveyard at this very moment, loudly declaring himself to be vindicated of all charges, all while the 900 pound gorilla of executive privilege to block the congressional committee’s investigation looms as a huge, hairy question mark. If you, Mr. Holder, and your boss, were simply the innocent victims of malfeasance by underlings, why that fallback to executive privilege. Two questions, Eric:
1. If there was no way to track the weapons once they crossed south of the border, what was the rationale of the plan?
2. If you and your boss aren’t in this up to your ears, why invoke executive privilege?

You’re hiding the true origins and motivations of Fast and Furious. You know it and we out here damned well know it. The IG’s bogus report is but temporary cover. You may think that you have bought off all your scape-goated federal employees, but one or more will turn on you, sooner or later, because among all those career bureaucrats are some honorable agents who mistakenly believed they could follow your orders and serve their country with a dignity you took from them. And if the good guys won’t expose you, there are schemers among them, like you and your boss, who will file a law suit with an eye to the book, television and movie rights.

Sleep well, Eric…

    Perhaps with the upcoming election, we can change things and put new people in office which will bring about a new Attorney General. With that, (and with any luck), a deliberate investigation into these surroundings will take place and perhaps those who have hiding under the umbrella of executive protection will be exposed – followed by, perhaps – criminal charges and justice finally being served.

  2. ROS says:

    I believe that we are, unfortunately, surrounded by far too many stupid people for that ti happen.

  3. ROS says:

    Or “to”. Whichever.

  4. brat says:

    Surprised? No. Disgusted? Yes. Brian Terry and his family deserve better from the country he died serving.

  5. Twist says:

    Why would the buy a semi-auto AK from North of their border for $1,000 when they can buy a fully-auto AK from South of their border for $100?

  6. Detn8r says:

    This entire administration has did everything they can to destroy this country without openly declaring war on OUR Constitution. I really feel for the Honorable Federal employees that have been taken on this disgracful ride. I have taken the Oath numerous times and absolutely believe in the Constitution, I know far too many others like me that will not lay down and allow this current group of enemies, idiots and bureaucrats to destroy what our fore fathers, and Mothers, have died for and still are dying to defend. four more years of this current administration will see this country on the brink of another civil war, if not in one. Ive said this for years, “The only enemy able to bring down the US is the US.” Closed minded ignorance from the left and their open disdain for the capitalist United States is, and will, push the normally quiet black, white, brown AMERICAN to lash out in retaliation to their attack on our way of life. I know this is a ramblng entry, but, I for one have tried of the attack on my beliefs and NATURAL lifestyle. Holder HAS to go and any that have supported him along with his boss and cronies. Sorry for the rant.

  7. Detn8r says:

    Again, sorry for the rant and bad spelling. “tired of the ,,,”

  8. Yat Yas 1833 says:

    The reason for “Fast & Furious” was to divert the “dear leader’s” lack of action concerning our border with Mexico. When we (Az) tried to take responsibility for the border, comrade banana and his politbureau went crazy suing any and everyone who had anything to do with the laws enacted trying to address the illegal alien problem. He sided with a foreign country over a state of this union. He sided with a foreign country against states who decided to try to ensure only citizens vote in our elections. I read an article in the Detroit Times claiming their Secretary of State found ‘hundreds’ of illigals registered and many who had voted in recent elections. He’s with them NOT with the United States.

  9. AndyN says:

    Mexican immigrants, asking the questions Americans won’t ask…

    “There’s a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation but shouldn’t the attorney general, Eric Holder, he should have known about that and if he didn’t, should you fire him?”

    Of course, even an interviewer willing to ask the question has no way of preventing the president from lying through his teeth, but asking the question on camera is a nice first step.

  10. PintoNag says:

    So much for transparency in government. Or any administration by either party. I think we are long past the point of trusting our government, no matter what the flavor.

  11. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    Once again you see the Democrat idea of taking responsibility. Holder should resign on principle, when your department acts illegally without your knowledge (if you believe that horsesh1t) it means you lack the necessary control of your own department to manage it effectively. Just as Janet Reno took responsibility for killing 80 people while trying to serve one of them a warrant resulted in no job loss for her and no reprimand, Holder taking responsibility means not losing your job.

    When your department f#cks up and commits illegal, immoral, and deadly acts without your knowledge you are a total f#cking incompetent and should not be allowed to manage anything else for the rest of your career. Come on Democrats, you’re always telling us how moral and righteous your principles are, how about asking one of your own to be relieved from his position for violating the innate trust of the American people that their duly elected leader would place leaders who value honesty, integrity, and legality over political power in charge of the one department where that should matter more than any other.

    And don’t come back with some bullsh1t about Bush, either you are righteous or you are not, pointing out that you believe the other guy is not righteous so it’s okay for you to be a douche bag too is getting a little tired.

  12. UpNorth says:

    @#8, Yat, actually as Michigan’s SoS keeps checking the rolls, the numbers keep rising, she’s found about 4,000 illegals on the voting rolls, and 150-200 convicted felons, so far.

  13. Hondo says:

    UpNorth: I believe the 4000 figure is an estimate, albeit one based on good statistical data. A review of what appears to be 20+% of the state’s drivers licenses/ID cards issued to noncitizens against voter rolls showed 963 noncitizens registered to vote.

    Yeah, that “Motor Votor” law we passed close to 20 years ago was a really good idea, wasn’t it?

  14. MCPO NYC USN (Ret.) says:

    BTW a bit off subject, but makes a good point.

    My six year old son has a NYS DMV issued ID card (same process as applying for driver’s license).

    Most state DMV will issue the ID regardless of your driving status.

    All you have to do is PROVE who your are.

    Please don’t tell me or my six year old son it is a burden to get an ID.

    If you are LEGAL anyone can get one for FREE.

  15. 2-17 AirCav says:

    @10. Well, PN, at least Obama is out of the closet now. In 2008, he simply lied, smiled, and made a bunch of people want to make history in electing our first partly black chief executive. The wire-rimmed set did it and history was made. No more guilt issuesfor them. And now we have lies AND a record of horrors that are all his. One day his college records will be released. One day, the LA Times will release its tape. One day, emails, telehone converstaion transcripts, and meeting minutes will all be released. Before that day comes, more likely than not, he will have turncoats who will, for money or just attention, confirm much of what is suspected of President POS. (Active duty: Please do not try that at home–or elsewhere. Save it for when you have totally completed your active and reserve status.)

  16. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    The law of unintended consequences strikes again. Try to help folks register to vote, but the method used doesn’t disallow illegal aliens. Not hard to figure out how illegals get to vote.

    America celebrates diversity, by allowing those who are here in direct violation of the law to vote for those who make the laws…..

  17. Common Sense says:

    Don’t blame the IG for not getting Holder.

    “During the House Government Oversight Committee Hearing, the Department of Justice IG says that the White House refused to share internal communications on Fast and Furious”

    If there’s nothing there, why hide the documents?

    I’m guessing that if Romney wins, shredders will be running 24/7 until January.

  18. Old Tanker says:

    Hondo and Up North

    That and the Feds refuse to share any citizenship info with her frosts my behind like a cold opening day of muzzle loading season…
    I don’t think her idea with the citizenship checkbox on the ballot is necesarily a good one seeing as they lied to get on the voter roles in the first place. No reason not to lie again especially when the feds won’t allow her to check most of their citizenship status.

  19. OWB says:

    This sort of self-absorbed person usually has no difficulty in sleeping soundly. It’s all part of the pathology. Now, when they deteriorate into full blown paranoia then they have trouble sleeping with themselves, but not because they have done anything wrong. Conscience is not an issue because they have none.

  20. Nik says:

    All the more reason for the Pubs to take back Congress and the Presidential seat. Maybe then we can find out the truth and crucify those that truly deserve it.

    And I’m not sure I’m being figurative here. I think a good old fashioned Roman Empire crucifixion might just be in order.

  21. Devtun says:

    Bet on AG Holder’s friends The New Black Panther peeps to be posted outside certain battleground polling venues on Nov 6 -y’know for “supervision and fairness” purposes.

  22. Ex-PH2 says:

    Say, did any of you see the new version of the American flag being used for Bo’s campaign?

    The sight of that travesty ought to really frost your pumpkins.

  23. PintoNag says:

    @23 and #24

    That stuff gives me the creeps. D’ya suppose they’re puttin’ something in the water somewhere?? 🙁

  24. Ex-PH2 says:

    I thought it was only L. Ron Hubbard’s moonbat followers who did that.

  25. OWB says:

    Creepy only begins to describe it. Chills up the spine is in there somewhere.

    Disturbing, to say the least.

  26. Ex-PH2 says:

    I knew it. I just kept thinking it was like teenyboppers worshiping the Bieber, but that’s such an adolescent reaction to a boy, the comparison didn’t make sense. But I was right in the first place.

    It’s a bunch of horny, frustrated little girls (age is irrelevant) who a creaming their jeans and squealing over Elvis/Beatles/Stones/Bieber/you name it. I saw the same thing with my mother drooling over Jack Kennedy, but I thought it was because he went to Harvard and was fairly bright. My mistake; Ma said it was his charisma — sex appeal.

    Naw, it’s all about SEX, people — SEX and NOTHING ELSE. He can say anything he wants to and they don’t care, they’ve all got the horny hots for him and nothing else matters.

    I knew I recognized that glazed look in their eyes from somewhere.

    (Walks away, shaking her head.)

  27. Ex-PH2 says:

    Must be something wrong with me. I don’t find him even slightly appealing.

  28. OWB says:

    EGADS! That’s even MORE disturbing, PH!!

    (And here I thought it bad that every time I see Holder I see a very strong family resemblance. No, I will NEVER check that one out – afraid I might discover that we are indeed related!)

  29. 2-17 AirCav says:

    Heil to the Chief?

  30. OWB says:

    NEVER! No, no, no, no, no.

    Now go wash your mouth out with lye soap, Cav!

  31. malclave says:

    Regarding the O flag that the Obama campaign was selling… some people think the five red stripes look like the bloody hand prints in Benghazi.

  32. Ex-PH2 says:

    I thought so, too, Malclave. It is eery. The glazed eyes of the cult followers. A ‘cult’ movie (The Master) coming out this weekend. And now the flag altered that way. It gets creepier and creepier.

  33. Detn8r says:

    OK,, the last i2 or so posts have my big butt running for cover!! And, Ex-PH2, you have real looks, thats why you do not find him the least attractive (saw your pic in the members gallery)! I totally agree with your comparison to the idol worshippers theory. I have seen it in certain government facilities and in side th beltway. The last week of news has me fearing for this country much more than I have before, and that was a lot. I have a 26 yr old Daughter and a two year old Grand Daughter, I really want them to have the opportunities I have had, in an America that is strong. Four more years of this administration will see it disappear and the liberals and fawning worshippers will let it happen, not to mentions those that think they are entittled to everything.

  34. Hack Stone says:

    Yep, an open and transparent administration. It’s transparent to evryone that if you cross this administration, you better watch out.
