Predictable: NY Times Goes to Bat For Obama Administration Over GunWalker, Lies

It is hardly surprising that the left-wing MSM is trying to cover Obama's backside and see if they can get him past the scandal with his skin intact, but if this is the best they've got, Obama's toast.

If Congressional Republicans are really intent on getting to the bottom of an ill-conceived sting operation along the border by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, they should call President Felipe Calderón of Mexico as an expert witness.

Mr. Calderón has the data showing that the tens of thousands of weapons seized from the Mexican drug cartels in the last four years mostly came from the United States. Three out of five of those guns were battlefield weapons that were outlawed here until the assault weapons ban was allowed to lapse in 2004. To help him stop the bloody mayhem, he is pleading with Washington to re-enact the ban and impose other needed controls.

I suppose we should be encouraged that the unsigned editorial is no longer trying to defend Obama's 90-percent lie, but they're still lying.


As I revealed today at Pajamas Media, MExico has over 300,000 weapons recovered from crime scenes locked up in vaults, and only 5,114 submitted in 2007-08 have been found to have come from the U.S.

Somebody do the math on that... does that sound like "three out of five" to you? The Times lied.

Of course, the lying doesn't stop there.

The editorial claims that the 1994 "assault weapons ban" that sunset in 2004 meant that " battlefield weapons that were outlawed here."

Not to put too fine a point on it, but bullshit.

The 1994 Bill to Outlaw Scary-Looking Cosmetic Features did not ban a single battlefield weapon. Not one.

But all of that is irrelevant. What we are witnessing here is a heavily-biased New York Times editorial board declaring that it is more important to salvage this trainwreck of a Presidency than it is to seek out and punish those that implemented a plot that put an estimated 2,000 Gunwalker firearms into the hands of narco-terrorists, which were used to kill at least 150 Mexican police and soldiers along with at least two U.S. federal agents.

Who are the real monsters? The bloodthirsty cartels, or the cool and calculating Manhattan liberals that enable their gun suppliers?

This was nothing but an attempt to implement new anti gun laws. Obama was active with the Joyce foundation which tried to get guns outlawed. They used the well known tactic of lying. But then Obama has no problem with that. This goes all the way to the White House. The outcome will be impeachment if it happens while he is still President and prison time if he is not.

If the senate was Republican O would take a hit, but it is not. Nothing will come of this. too bad.

I tend to disagree with the notion the Donks in the senate can ignore a blatant violation of the law. Sending guns to Mexico was a criminal act. That is true no matter if the admin. was the carrier or just allowed it to happen. No donk senator could run for reelection based upon a vote of not guilty.
