What Constitution?

11 Dec

Either we have one, or we don’t.

Politico reported Monday that weekly sessions on gun control have been held between the White House Office of Public Engagement and representatives from Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, Moms Demand Action, the Center for American Progress, Organizing for Action and Americans for Responsible Solutions.

“Officials from the White House Office of Public Engagement, which reports to senior Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, are now carrying the administration’s gun control efforts. OPE officials hold a regular meeting with the major gun control groups known as the Gun Violence Table. The weekly sessions often include OPE Director Paulette Aniskoff or official Paul Monteiro.”,  According to Politico

Playing to the Sandy Hook incident, Attorney General Eric Holder will be the nation’s top law enforcement official as the administration tackles new restrictions on guns in a major initiative of the Kenyan’s second term.

ATF uses rogue tactics in storefront stings across nation

The administration announced at the first of this year that Holder, a longtime foe of the National Rifle Association (NRA), would remain with Obama for a second term.  The announcement came the same day Holder sat shoulder to shoulder with Vice President Biden and gun-control advocates in a meeting at the White House.

“The president is going to act,” Biden said. “There are executive orders, executive action that can be taken. We haven’t decided what that is yet, but we’re compiling it all.”   The aggressive moves that Holder made as D.C.’s attorney indicate he would be a willing partner if the Kenyan decides to wield the power of the administration against firearms.

House Democrats who urged the White House to use the failed mission as a springboard toward tightening gun trafficking laws and expanding the ATF’s investigative abilities.

Now, we are seeing that plan in action. 

Aaron Key wasn’t sure he wanted a tattoo on his neck. Especially one of a giant squid smoking a joint.

But the guys running Squid’s Smoke Shop in Portland, Ore., convinced him: It would be a perfect way to promote their store.  They would even pay him and a friend $150 apiece, of your tax money, if they agreed to turn their bodies into walking billboards.

Key, who is mentally disabled, was swayed.

He and his friend, Marquis Glover, liked Squid’s.  It was their hangout. The 19-year-olds spent many afternoons there playing Xbox and chatting with the owner, “Squid,” and the store clerks.

So they took the money and got the ink etched on their necks, tentacles creeping down to their collarbones.

It would be months before the young men learned the whole thing was a setup. The guys running Squid’s were actually undercover ATF agents conducting a sting to get guns away from criminals and drugs off the street.

The tattoos had been sponsored by the U.S. government.   

The teens found out as they were arrested and booked into jail.

Earlier this year when the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel exposed a botched ATF sting in Milwaukee — that included agents hiring a brain-damaged man to promote an undercover storefront and then arresting him for his work — ATF officials told Congress the failed Milwaukee operation was an isolated case of inadequate supervision.

It wasn’t.

The federal agents gave a brain-damaged drug addict with little knowledge of weapons a “tutorial” on machine guns, hoping he could find them one.  They opened undercover gun- and drug-buying operations in safe zones near churches and schools, allowed juveniles to come in and play video games and teens to smoke marijuana, and provided alcohol to underage youths.  They had a female agent dressed provocatively, flirted with the boys and encouraged them to bring drugs and weapons to the store to sell.  They offered sky-high prices for guns, leading suspects to buy firearms at stores and turn around and sell them to undercover agents for a quick profit.  Their agents ran fake pawnshops and readily bought stolen items, such as electronics and bikes — no questions asked — spurring burglaries and theft.  They damaged buildings they rented for their operations, tearing out walls and rewiring electricity — then stuck landlords with the repair bills.  They allowed felons to walk out of the stores armed with guns.  They hired a felon to run its pawnshop.

“To say this is just a few people, a few bad apples, I don’t buy it,” said David Harris, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and an expert on law enforcement tactics and regulation.

“If your agency is in good shape with policy, training, supervision and accountability, the bad apples will not be able to take things to this level.”

A machine gun and other weapons had been stolen from an agent’s car, the storefront was burglarized, agents arrested the wrong people and hired the brain-damaged man, who had an IQ of 54, to set up gun and drug deals.

The machine gun has not been recovered.

I wonder what oath this guy took.  And just how hard is it really, to run an honest, legal, and open, government agency?  I guess if you’re a wanna-be tyrant, that it’s impossible.

    I’m thinking this demonstrates the radical means (Operations Fast & Furious and Wide Receiver) the regime will use to accomplish their mission, which is simply to disarm American gun owners because the regime fears them to a great extent. To a person with reasonable and intelligent discernment, one can come to no other conclusion after reviewing the countless incidents of the past five years.

    On a daily basis we see and read of flagrant violations of the Constitutional rights of American citizens no doubt willfully and maliciously planned and perpetrated at all levels. The regime will stop at nothing and use any means possible, up to and including taking the lives of law abiding people.

    In my opinion it comes down to who will come out on top in a struggle between the communist ideals or the Rule of Law and the principles of the American citizenry left us by our Founders. The communists are showing signs of unraveling in their endeavors while the Patriots are getting stronger.

    I’m betting my money on the Patriots, they have a damned good track record over the past 2 plus centuries. We WILL live free, or die in the attempt…but we will not be the only antagonists lying on the field.

      This was all so unnecessary. Communists and Progressive thinkers are the roots of the threat to Liberty and Freedom.
