You know I love it when we find hypocrisy emanating from the progressive socialists of the left. Yeah, I know, it’s really not that hard, and they make it easy — well, for those with the courage to go on offense against them.In the aftermath of the Orlando Islamic terror attack, the left has been spewing forth its manufactured and fabricated narrative about gun control. Heck, they even carried a rainbow banner from the New York City pride parade that blamed
But, courtesy of the venerable New York Times (they actually got a story right for once) comes this, “Weapons shipped into Jordan by the Central Intelligence Agency and Saudi Arabia intended for Syrian rebels have been systematically stolen by Jordanian intelligence operatives and sold to arms merchants on the black market, according to American and Jordanian officials.
Some of the stolen weapons were used in a shooting in November that killed two Americans and three others at a police training facility in Amman, FBI officials believe after months of investigating the attack, according to people familiar with the investigation.
The existence of the weapons theft, which ended only months ago after complaints by the American and Saudi governments, is being reported for the first time after a joint investigation by The New York Times and Al Jazeera.The theft, involving millions of dollars of weapons, highlights the messy, unplanned consequences of programs to arm and train rebels — the kind of program the C.I.A. and Pentagon have conducted for decades — even after the Obama administration had hoped to keep the training program in Jordan under tight control.
The Jordanian officers who were part of the scheme reaped a windfall from the weapons sales, using the money to buy expensive SUVs, iPhones and other luxury items, Jordanian officials said. The theft and resale of the arms — including Kalashnikov assault rifles, mortars and rocket-propelled grenades — have led to a flood of new weapons available on the black arms market.
Investigators do not know what became of most of them, but a disparate collection of groups, including criminal networks and rural Jordanian tribes, use the arms bazaars to build their arsenals. Weapons smugglers also buy weapons in the arms bazaars to ship outside the country.”Now, this is just too good to pass up. So when will the House Democrats have a sit-in for gun control regarding this incident? We still hear the left resurrect Iran-Contra when it comes to speaking of Ronald Reagan. But I suppose this is just fine by them? Consider this is the same administration that conducted Operation Fast and Furious — no my progressive socialist friends, not the movie — and U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry lost his life.
However, no one is held accountable in this Obamaworld — so Eric Holder goes off scot-free and will be making big money on the speaker’s circuit. Now we have two Americans killed in this fiasco where there was obviously no chain of control of these weapons.Remember Obama’s grand plan to defeat ISIS, to train and arm Syrian rebels? Yep, there were millions of dollars spent, we shared that here, and former CENTCOM Commanding General Lloyd Austin testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that a whole fifty Syrian Bubbas had been trained — all but five were killed or captured.
And now we learn the weapons ended up on the black market and some were used to kill Americans. And who was it that said Obama has a 54 percent approval rating — who are they asking? If this were a GOP presidential administration, there would be screaming from the rafters, to go along with sit-ins, demanding resignations…hear anything from the new American Socialist Party? Yep, just crickets.
Let’s be honest, the left holds themselves to no standard, and that’s one of the Saul Alinsky rules: “RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.” You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)”
This is the mantra of the left. They attempt to challenge their political opposition to live up to rules and standards for which they have contempt and will never embrace themselves. And sadly, the GOP NEVER forces them to be on defense, explaining their hypocrisy — such as the childish petulant sit-in on the House of Representatives floor. And in this case, the GOP should be demanding gun control of the Obama administration, not the American people. Now, consider this: the state of Hawaii just signed into law that law-abiding legal gun owners be placed into an FBI database. Yet, the Obama administration just gives out weapons to folks and loses control resulting in the deaths of Americans — Brian Terry, and others in Jordan. And you have to ask, were any of the weapons used in the assault against the Special Mission Compound and CIA annex in Benghazi funneled to Islamic jihadist groups by Barack Obama?
Back in 2009 I gave a speech at a place in Ft. Lauderdale called the Revolution. I stated that we needed to take Alinsky’s rules for radicals and turn it against the left.
Here we have an example of the Obama administration causing the deaths of Americans, directly, and where is the outrage? Credibility? Reputation? Barack Obama and his flying monkey acolytes of the left have none. They’re nothing more than liars.
They know it, it’s been proven and validated over and over again, and it’s time we stop being politically correct and denying that self-evident truth.
America cannot tolerate another progressive socialist presidential administration — certainly NEVER again a congressional majority of progressive socialists. They obfuscate, lie, and are corrupt to their very core. They do not hold themselves accountable, even in the case of overwhelming evidence of their complicity in the deaths of Americans.
What’s amazing to me is how people can willingly support those who have the blood of Americans on their hands — of course the typical response is Bush Derangement Syndrome. Then again, they operate without any rules or conscience, so Brian Terry, Chris Stevens, Ty Woods, Glenn Doherty, Sean Smith, and the two American DynCorp International contractors killed in Jordan, whose names we don’t know, mean little — actually nothing to people like Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and their supporters.
What a sad, pathetic, deplorable state of existence that political affiliation becomes more important than your fellow countrymen. I doubt this story will make the evening news on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, or MSNBC. It’s as if the leftists believe they’ll always be in the ultimate position of power, unchallenged.
