Fast and Furious funded by stimulus, ATF Project Gunrunner 10 million from 2009 Act, Media lies

Fast and Furious funded by stimulus, ATF Project Gunrunner 10 million from 2009 Act, Media lies

Today we learned that the unemployment rate is back up to 9.2 percent.

Rush Limbaugh on his radio show a few minutes ago stated that 10 million dollars from the Stimulus Bill, American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, went to Operation Fast and Furious. Fox News has reported this also.

Media Matters, over an hour ago reported:

“Fox News Baselessly Claims Stimulus Funds Went To ATF’s Operation Fast And Furious”

“Fox News is baselessly reporting that funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 went to Operation Fast and Furious, a controversial initiative of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) operation Project Gunrunner in which agents knowingly allowed guns to be trafficked across the border to Mexico in order to identify other members of a trafficking network. In fact, stimulus funds earmarked for Project Gunrunner were not distributed in Arizona, where a GOP report indicates Fast and Furious took place.”

Here is the allocation of 10 million dollars to the ATF for the sourthern border of the US to “combat criminal narcotics activity.”

“H. R. 1—16



“For an additional amount for ‘‘State and Local Law Enforcement
Assistance’’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide
assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the
Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to
combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern
border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘‘Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’’
for the ATF Project Gunrunner.”

This is found on page 16:

Media Matters, is the following an Orwellian word smithing and attempt to discredit the report?

“In fact, stimulus funds earmarked for Project Gunrunner were not distributed in Arizona, where a GOP report indicates Fast and Furious took place.”

We know that the ATF purchased the weapons for Project Gunrunner, aka Fast and Furious. The Stimulus Bill paragraph states:

“to provide  assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the
Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to 
combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern

Arizona is still on the southern border isn’t it?

Media Matters, if you have some real evidence, you know, like a Bill to repudiate these facts, please respond.

  1. He Who Would Be President in 2013

    He or she who would be president in 2013 must confront Obama’s issue of eligibility as well as his criminal violations of the Constitution.

    Approximately two thirds of Americans doubt Obama’s nativity story that he was born in Hawaii. Most believe he is an illegal alien who has usurped the presidency.

    There currently are thousands of citizens who are sending letters regarding Obama’s felony when he flaunted on TV, April 27, 2011 a proven “forged document” he claimed to be his long form birth certificate. They are sending these letters to the FBI, their local sheriffs, Congress, Senators or to whom ever has judicial authority. These letters are called “misprision of a felony” which states that people who have witnessed a felony are legally obligated to notify a legal authority. Obama’s “audacity of hope” is so flagrant he hoped if he audaciously produced any document on TV and calls it his birth certificate, the American people would be so gullible they would believe it. When that insulting denigrating to America’s intelligence backfired on him, he immediately went to plan B—the alleged murder of Osama Bin Ladin.

    This fraud and his equally criminal wife have been using and abusing the office of presidency for their own personal interests and wealth since they illegally moved into the WH. America has been witnessing one misprision of felony after another while entering a grave state of shock because the watch dogs of America failed to make this imposter accountable for his crimes with all sorts of lame and cowardly excuses—“no one had standing to sue him”, demanding his proof of eligibility “might embarrass the president”. . .. “Disgusting or obscene” are words that don’t even begin to describe that sick feeling in the stomach and hearts of millions of honest Americans of all colors.

    Obama’s eligibility is America’s number one crisis today. All other issues are secondary to this. For example—no bill or law signed by a usurper is valid. Therefore Obamacare is not legal. Therefore all the rotten anti American treaties he made with other countries are not legal. It will be very easy to undue all the rest of the vile, disgusting laws and bills he got through via executive order—EPA, the DREAM ACT.

    What we the people really, really want is an honest-non-corrupted-by-Obama Congress, Senate, judicial system, CIA, FBI, DOJ and Hawaiian health department. We must insist that every SOS of all 50 states demand Obama produce his credentials proving beyond the shadow of a .50 cent forgery he is eligible or forbid him to be placed on the ballot.

    The 2012 election is upon us. This is America’s last gasp to get it right. Time is of the essence. There is no potential powerful courageous candidate sniffing and wagging for the Republican nomination I would vote for today–from Romney to Bachman to Perry to Pawlenty. They all have avoided the issue of Obama’s eligibility as if it were of no importance while simultaneously advising the public to focus on “the Obama policies.” It is another smoke and mirrors act that the public must not permit. Americans already know issues of employment, borders, Obamacare, economy, foreign policy, housing, national security, yadda, yadda are going to be the usual ho hum political menu politicians have run on for the last hundred years. Regardless of who is in office after the election these issues would be addressed. The real blood and guts issue is “who the hell is Obama and why he is still in the WH.”

    We need to remove or at best diminish political corruption. We want to replace the Washington crooks with honorable men and women who are oath keepers, patriotic Americans. We must elect leaders who believe in America first, the wisdom of the Constitution and who hold the belief America must be restored to Capitalism and its Christian/Judeo beliefs. If just those ideas are upheld and practiced, so many other issues would automatically begin to resolve themselves. We the voters must choose the leaders who support these ideas and reject the cowards who chose to ignore Obama’s eligibility while claiming attacking his policies is more important. By the way—after America voted in November 2010, did you notice how they immediately forgot their promises to hold Obama accountable? They all turned into Scott Browns who wasted no time getting into bed with Obama.

    Any politician running for any office in 2012 who makes statements like the following regard these statements as red flags as to the type of job they will do once in office. Politicians who refuse to confront the single most important issue in America Today are not only in denial, they are unfit to hold the office for which he/she is running. They are complicit in Obama’s crime of usurpation and are unwittingly revealing to you he/she will—once in office—place his/her career above the integrity of America. Any politician who places his career above his country is a traitor. This type of politician can and will be easily corrupted by Obama bribery or intimidation.

    “Let’s not confront Obama’s eligibility. Attacking his policies is more important”.

    “Obama is qualified to be president. He was born in Hawaii. He is a NBC”

    “If Obama is ruled ineligible than this will cause America’s black to riot.”

    “There have been hundreds a cases regarding Obama’s eligibility, and they have all been dismissed.”

    “If I confront Obama’s eligibility while I am running, I will be labeled as a “birther” and considered crazy and will never get elected.”

    What Americans really, really want is for the judicial watch dogs to stop stone walling, pigeon holing, obfuscating, cork screwing and mind molesting we the people and investigate Obama’s eligibility, false social security numbers, his persistence in the war on Libya, his participation in “Gun Runner”, and the entire collection of election frauds, constitutional violations, and the Vatican Bank.

    He who will become president in 2013 will excel far ahead of any competition—in spite the Republican Committee’s failure to confront Obama’s eligibility from 2008 to now.
    Donald the Trump’s short flirtation as a possible candidate proved this to be hottest issue. Obama’s eligibility issue supersedes all others. The Donald, a non politician garnered ratings higher than any possible presidential contender in the shortest amount of time. It wasn’t due to Trump’s popularity—he wasn’t that popular. It was due to his “audacity” to confront what every American who does not believe Obama is eligible wants done. Expose the imposter and all his false identity crimes from Harrison J. Bounel to his own mother’s false security number. Shout out all the Obama’s lies, fiction, and fantasies too every American. Demand accountability via his producing each and every document from his birth certificate to his school records to his Harvard activities to what in the hell we are doing in Libya. It is not only our duty but our right. Once a man becomes the president of the United States then ALL HIS RECORDS BELONG TO THE PUBLIC. Obama’s first act as a usurper president was to violate the law by sealing all his records.

    The candidate who fearlessly confronts Obama’s eligibility will become the next president—even if he runs on a third party. By law, Obama should not even be permitted to run until he has proven he is qualified.

  2. Great reporting CW!!

  3. Here’s how Holder used the stimulus funds for Project Gunrunner.
    What did Holder know about Project Gunrunner and when did he know it? As early as April 2, 2009?

    Attorney General Eric Holder at the Mexico/United States Arms Trafficking Conference
    CUERNAVACA, MEXICO ~ Thursday, April 2, 2009

    ………Last week, our administration launched a major new effort to break the backs of the cartels. My department is committing 100 new ATF personnel to the Southwest border in the next 100 days to supplement our ongoing Project Gunrunner, DEA is adding 16 new positions on the border, as well as mobile enforcement teams, and the FBI is creating a new intelligence group focusing on kidnapping and extortion. DHS is making similar commitments, as Secretary Napolitano will detail……….




    “Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Operation Fast and Furious”

    By Jerry McConnell
    Friday, July 8, 2011


    “The unbelievable audacity of this Obama Administration is enough to rattle a man’s brain it is so brazenly full of chutzpah. It’s as if all of them from the Usurper-in-Chief on down think they not only can walk on water but they can use that water to cleanse all the dirt and mud that sticks to them from their dirty dealings.

    They all feel that they are above any criticism or judgment for their nefarious or improper conduct; the order of the day is just forget and find someone to investigate for something else to take the spotlight off of them. It would be interesting to know just how many incidents or issues are being “investigated” by Congress into Obama accomplice miscreantic endeavors. Perhaps Congressman Issa can tell us.

    Case in point: Our Secretary of the Department of Justice and Attorney General the highest appointed justice purveyor in our government, Eric H. Holder, was recently on a hot burner attempting to defend himself and his immediate superior, Barack Obama from involvement in the mass gun supply activity to criminals in Mexico who bring drugs into the United States and many other illegal activites.

    To escape the heat emanating from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) launched Operation “Fast and Furious”—an illegal pipeline for shipping guns into Mexico Holder and his (un)Justice Department suddenly announced that they were going to launch criminal probes into CIA interrogations where alleged deaths were perpetrated during the Bush Administration.

    That’s Slippery Ops 101; take the heat off yourself by aiming heat at someone else. I have a feeling Holder is an expert in dodging guilt or exculpation by deflecting it in another direction.

    Much of what I have written here was derived from information gleaned at website established by the National Rifle Association of America (NRA), from an article titled, “Help Stop the Conspiracy and Cover Up!” by Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President (NRA) and also “Justice Department Launches Criminal Probe Into Deaths During CIA Interrogations.” (snip).

    The LaPierre report added, “While these leaked cables exposed the lies propping up Obama’s gun control agenda, administration officials at the highest levels pushed a strategy to fit their gun control aims.

    “In a display of corruption and arrogance that’s shocking even for this Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) launched Operation “Fast and Furious”—an illegal pipeline for shipping guns into Mexico.

    “With our government’s full knowledge and complicity, BATFE higher-ups ordered firearms dealers to sell these guns illegally to straw purchasers. And it wasn’t just a few guns… It was over two thousand.

    This exercise in arrogance and impropriety in high government officials wound up costing the life of one of the BATFE men, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry who was shot and killed in a gunfight with a group of armed Mexican “illegal entrants. And when the bandits fled, they left behind two AK-style rifles that were traced to sales made under the Fast and Furious operation.”

    As stated above, Congressman Darrel Issa ( R-CA) as well as Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) are holding Congressional hearing into Operation “Fast and Furious” the ID given to the expedited sales operations that BATFE forced on gun dealers with the Mexican criminals. During these hearings Senator Grassley questioned Holder according to LaPierre asking, “How did guns that were allowed to ‘walk’ our of gun dealer shops during Operation Fast and Furious end up at a U.S. Border Patrol Agent’s murder scene?” Holder’s evasive answer, “I frankly don’t know.”

    This synopsis of potential career ending story of illegalities committed by Justice Department officials was covered more completely in The Examiner on July 06, 2011 that these guns that were being practically given to Mexican criminals were part of the idea that they would be traced to “higher-ups” in the drug cartel for stronger evidence in future investigations.

    But as Republican Chairman of the House Oversight Panel discovered, the planned ‘Operation Fast and Furious’ didn’t work as intended.

    Several of the weapons sold with ATF approval have been used in nearly two dozen murders on both sides of the border, including that of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. After that killing the program was shut down with Justice Department officials denying any knowledge of Fast and Furious. But ATF Director Kenneth Melson has described multiple oral and written communications he had with senior Justice officials about the program both before and after Terry was murdered emphasizing the relevance of the cover-up.

    Chairman Issa’s panel has run into a solid wall of obstruction and resistance Justice Department on requests for information and documents. In a letter to AG Holder, Issa said that ATF Chief Melson told congress that ATF’s senior leadership would have preferred to be far more cooperative with our inquiry but Justice Department officials directed them not to respond and they took full control of replying to Congress.

    Obstructing congressional investigations is illegal, as is threatening to discipline or otherwise hamper or prevent any federal employee from cooperating with a congressional inquiry. As The Examiner stated, “We look forward to hearing the explanations of Justice Department higher-ups who told Melson not to respond to the Issa panel’s requests and who, according to Issa, thereby “sent over false denials” and “distorted the truth and obstructed our investigation. We might also find out what they were so determined to keep Issa from learning.”

    NOW can we get the impeachment proceedings started?”

    “Great Jerry,

    This is a big deal and also a very impeachable offence!

    It is now a widely-reported fact that under the Obama administration, U.S. federal agents actively placed over 30,000 fully-functional weapons into the hands of Mexican drug gangs, then halted all surveillance and tracking activities of where those weapons were going.

    This is not a conspiracy theory, nor a piece of fiction. It is now an openly-admitted fact that this was pulled off by the BATFE (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, more commonly called “ATF”) under orders from Washington. The program was called “Fast and Furious.”

    Even Reuters is now covering the news and reporting how members of Congress are outraged to learn that this happened (…).

    Details are also starting to leak about the cover-up inside ATF, which was led by the U.S. Attorney in Arizona, Dennis Burke, an Obama appointee

    (…). The engineering of the illegal gun running went right up the chain of command to the director of the ATF, Kenneth Melson, who is now expected to resign. The real planning of this event went even higher up the chain of command in Washington, possibly all the way to Attorney General Eric Holder (…).

    “Occupant of the White House, who is ineligible to be President, Gangster Government”


    “We have an occupant of the White House, who is ineligible to be President, who has likely forged or been complicit in the forgery of official documents and who may be using a stolen Social Security Number.

    There is ever increasing evidence of widespread press self-censorship and the altering of online documents to misinform and manipulate the American people in order to protect Barack Obama.

    We have a rogue and dangerous Executive Branch and members of Congress who have violated their oaths of office and abdicated their responsibility to support and defend the Constitution and uphold the rule of law.

    They are now all co-conspirators attempting to achieve absolute power and corrupt the government absolutely, all of which will eventually lead to the destruction of our republic.

    Michael Barone calls it “Gangster Government”, where, in the Chrysler bailout, the Obama administration forced bondholders to accept 33 cents on the dollar on secured debts while giving United Auto Worker (UAW) retirees 50 cents on the dollar on unsecured debts.

    That was a clear violation of the ordinary bankruptcy rule that secured creditors are fully paid off before unsecured creditors get anything. The politically connected UAW got preference over politically unconnected bondholders.

    Add to that travesty, the destruction of 789 small business, dealer franchises during the Chrysler bankruptcy hearing.

    Was that yet another violation of bankruptcy law to benefit the UAW? Why does it seem that Obama and his allies always side with the fat cats over small businesses and ordinary investors?

    In his superb exposé “Chrysler Bankruptcy Exposes Dirty Politics”, Declan McCullagh documents the immorality, the breakdown of the rule of law and strong-arm tactics used by some politicians.

    He describes how Obama, his allies and Congressional Democrats interfered on behalf of unions (the junior creditors) and publicly upbraided the senior creditors who were asserting their contractual rights.

    The UAW has donated $25.4 million to federal politicians over the last two decades, with 99 percent of that cash going to Democrats. Obama’s final 2008 campaign stop on Election Day was a UAW phone bank.

    Clifford Asness, managing partner at a $20 billion hedge fund named AQR Capital Management, called it “toxic demagoguery” and says “the president’s attempted diktat takes money from bondholders and gives it to a labor union that delivers money and votes for him.”

    The Constitution is being violated and the rule of law eroded to benefit a rich and powerful elite who care not for their country, but only for themselves.

    Our elected representatives, our courts and our law enforcement agencies are ignoring our requests for the redress of grievances and investigations of likely law violations.

    America no longer has a government beholden to the people.”

    “The history of the present occupant of the White House and the current US Congress has been a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny.

    “If ever time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.” – Samuel Adams

    That time has come.

    Vain and aspiring men have installed an illegal President. They have tolerated violations of the law at the highest levels of government and they have concealed the truth from the American people.

    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people; it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.” – Patrick Henry

    Vain and aspiring men are shredding our Constitution to enhance and extend their own political and financial power while confiscating our liberties.

    “We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” – Thomas Jefferson,

    Vain and aspiring men have driven our country to the brink of bankruptcy and mortgaged the future of our children to foreign nations.”

    “Barack Obama is an illegal President, who has likely committed felonies in office and there is an active conspiracy to prevent the American people from learning the truth.

    There is evidence that Obama’s birth documents and Selective Service registrations are forgeries and that he is using a stolen Social Security number.

    Yet there are no investigations to ascertain the facts. There is only willful ignorance.

    Many of our political leaders and government officials are either actively or passively complicit in this crime against our Constitution and our country.

    Attorney Leo Donofrio has documented evidence that, the main resource on the web for all things related to United States Supreme Court holdings, has been censoring various references to Minor v. Happersett (1875), the Supreme Court case which proves that Obama is an illegal President.

    These revisions, which began prior to the 2008 election, must have been directed by persons with sophisticated legal knowledge and were likely perpetrated by Obama supporters to mislead the American people.

    There is no way that it was an accident. As Donofrio writes this is a “red alert moment for our nation.”

    Here is an example of how far the Congress and our government officials have degenerated.

    Senator Dick Durbin invites a room full of illegal immigrants into the US Senate chambers, praises them and then introduces them to the Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who is responsible for enforcing our immigration laws, but sees no reason to do so.

    Then Dim Bulb Durbin says that any of the assembled illegal immigrants can become President.”

    “For patriotic Americans, this is our Cuban Missile Crisis. Make Congress blink.

    Congress has always known that Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen and has never been eligible to be President, yet they continue to lie to the American people.

    They are covering up their disregard for the Constitution and their dereliction of duty.

    Congress and federal agencies also refuse to investigate Obama’s alleged felonies: forged birth documents and Selective Service registration and a stolen Social Security Number.

    The United States is now at a turning point in history.

    Will the country be governed by laws or by corrupt politicians and bureaucrats and their beneficiaries, the wealthy special interests?

    If our country no longer has any honest leaders, it will be the responsibility of ordinary citizens to restore the Constitution and the rule of law.”

    The Founding Fathers warned us to preserve a government of laws, and not of men.

    Arrogant, lawless and lusting for power, government officials have abrogated their responsibility to the Constitution, the country and its citizens.

    It was a backroom deal among Congressional Democrats and Republicans, which created our current Constitutional crisis.

    Congress and our political leadership always knew that Barack Obama was not a natural born citizen and, therefore, he was never eligible for the Presidency.”

  10. Mr. Bill(ms. helga)

    OT – “The 49th Parallel” – 1941, is a movie I just saw on Turner Classic Movies(TCM). I had never heard of this movie before today and I must tell you that it was the most powerful movie in terms of what is happening in our world today. Check out the TCM schedule and make sure you see it. The cast is unbelievable too. All the top ones from England in that era.

    CW – Eric Blair(George Orwell) must have seen this movie and helped inspire him to write “1984”.

    Movie scene –


  11. If, and when Soetoro attempts to impose martial law upon the people of America he had better think a second time. Private armories are packed to the rafters with everything necessary to WIN a confrontation with our military. Soetoro and his goon squad think that the ARMY,NAVY,MARINES,and AIRFORCE will kowtow and fire upon the American people. I seriously doubt if someone’s sone is going to fireupon his own family members. More than likely all the weapons will end up pointed toward DC,and at that point the usurper would be well advised if he promptly resigned. There is a potentially much bigger civilian ARMY than our existing Army,and it will be led by experienced people. They will first tell anyone who is attempting to enforce Martial Law if they want to help join up otherwise you had better hide.

  12. Everybody you should read the Declaration of Independence, it tells everybody what they must do to take back our government.

  13. Want to share a fantastic website for REAL news:

    It’s like the Drudge report, if Drudge had the balls to really
    report on the New World Order.

    Saturday: – WND has a story on this:

    “Obama stimulus funded ‘guns-to-drug-lords’ plan” – July 09, 2011

    Spending bill gave $10 million of taxpayers’ funding to effort


    Doug Giles reports on what MSM will not. Mobs of black youths terrorized whites at a BP store and in a park the night of July 4. Police refused to take statements of victims and witnesses. We may expect violent mob behavior toward the primaries and elections.

    WI Gov. Walker just signed “Concealed Carry”. The above events and the failure of police to respond should accelerate sales of handguns in WI and other states.
