The United States Justice Department has uncovered evidence that the Obama Administration funded the Project Gunrunner scandal (Fast and Furious project) through the Stimulus Bills. In an earlier post we noted how Federal agents pressured bonafide gun dealers in border states to allow unscrupulous gun transactions to be completed against the better judgement of the dealers, under the watchfull eye of the Federal agents.
In addition to agents turning their heads and looking the other way as Mexican Drug Cartels purchased guns in America, Stimulus money was paying for the illegal activity. Justice.org has located on page 96 of a report on this program, 2009, February, the Recovery Act signed into law, allocated $10 million to the ATF for Project Gunrunner. The launch of the Project Gunrunner scheme was announced in March of 2009 under orders from Barrack Obama, by the Deputy Attorney General, at a White House press conference.
Stimulus money paid for Project Gunrunner. Ten million dollars was allocated in the stimulus Porkulus bill to buy semi automatic rifles and revolvers and let Mexican drug lords take them across the border back to Mexico to use them on our Federal agents.
This is an impeachable act that is no less than treason. This President has provided guns and money to enemies of the United States – namely the Mexican Drug Lords, who have used these very weapons to kill agents of the United States. The Obama Administration is openly paying for illegal activity in order to manufacture a false premise to enact more gun control legislation. In a effort to provide a reason to gin up support for taking our guns away, the legislative branch of our government has enabled drug cartels to purchase guns illegally for their own illegal activity.
The Supplemental Appropriations act in June, 2009, allocated an additional $67 million to the ATF for Project Gunrunner which means you can trace the money directly back to Obama.
Then in August, 2010, the Emergency Border Security Supplemental Appropriations Bill of 2010 allocated $37.5 million to the ATF for Project Gunrunner – more money from Obama’s stash.
If you add it up; $10 million in February, $67 million in June, and $37 million in August – that’s $114 million to the ATF specifically for Project Gunrunner that directly funds the Mexican Drug cartels and their arsenal. All of it in a progressive liberal plan to create a reason for the American people to want more gun control laws and infringe our Second Amendment rights. Isn’t that fascinating?
