The “mainstream” media has been trying to suppress the story; but then, it initially tried to suppress Monica Lewinsky too. In the age of the Internet, nothing as explosive as the federal government attempting to cover up a program to undercut the Second Amendment by facilitating the illegal traffic of American guns into the hands of Mexican criminals can be hushed up forever — especially not when these guns have been used to kill a Border Patrol agent. Here’s an update on Senator Chuck Grassley’s efforts to get over the Clintonesque stone wall:
U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, has sent 10 letters to the U.S. Department of Justice seeking answers about how 1,700 firearms were allowed to be sold and smuggled illegally into Mexico.
He has received five letters in response, two of which contradict evidence he’s received from whistleblowers in the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives who were involved in Operation Fast and Furious.
But earlier this week, the senator, ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, had the chance to face the department’s head Attorney General Eric Holder and get the answers that have been lacking. Instead, he was left again feeling ignored.
“I didn’t get a lot of answers from him either,” Grassley said during a conference call with reporters after the hearing with Holder.
Grassley, who first raised this concern with the operation nearly four months ago, believes he’s being ignored either because the Justice Department doesn’t feel the need to respond to a member of the minority party or because if it did respond adequately, it would admit guilt.
Another reason Grassley is being ignored is that Holder and his boss Obama have the media on their side; otherwise the Community Organizer in Chief would be in the process of getting hounded out of office by now.
Grassley notes that apparently “our own government knowingly participated in arming criminals, drug cartels, and those who later killed federal agents.”
Left-wing partisans have so thoroughly destroyed the establishment media that this is not considered newsworthy. But sooner or later this bombshell will become widely known to the public.
