OPINION PIECE BY DALE BOHLING
“To sleep, perchance to dream”….and so the dreams of hope and change for many sleepy headed American voters has been harshly interrupted by the sudden stream of jolting scandals that have beset the Obama administration. Bleary eyed and squinting against blazing headlines of governmental abuse of entrusted powers, adoring devotees of “the most transparent administration in American history” suddenly find themselves bereft of a mainstay of certitude. Former media sycophants who have exhibited an unprecedented obsequiousness toward this president have suddenly and unexpectedly trumpeted scathing criticisms at the lawless actions of an increasingly tyrannical administration.
As U.S. Representative Darryl Issa and Senator Grassley’s committee investigating the criminal activity of gun running into a foreign soverign nation are ceaselessly obstructed by the unprecedented flagrant actions of a rogue Attorney General who has audacity matching Barrack Obama’s.After ignoring previous subpoenas he apparently acquiesced to a meeting with the Issa-Grassley Committee where once again he exhibited his Obamaesque arrogance and contempt for congressional investigators by telling them their probing the issue is “shameful” (First Read on ABC News). Body count to this point is 2 Americans and 200 +/- Mexican citizens. One has to wonder where the outrage of Mexico and Mexicans is in this scandal. Instead of outrage the Mexicans,(at least the illegal ones) worship at his altar!
While he stands before a Mexican audience and expounds on America’s insatiable appetite for drugs while violating Mexico’s sovereignty by illegally shipping guns into the nation he is greeted by cordiality and applause.No voices of protest or dissent was apparently uttered.One is led to wonder if their media is as compromised as ours ? Do the people have no inkling of the death and (likely) wounded flesh of their people owing to the criminal act of the Obama ATF supplying arms to the drug cartels south of the border? Of a certainty the Mexican officials are well aware.But not a hint of blame or outrage in the matter. And to add a disgusting flavor to the unsavory recipe,many,if not most of the guns were of the variety that Feinstein, Reid, Schumer, Pelosi and Barrack Obama were dedicated to the cause of removing from the hands of American citizens!
Of course, since arms piracy is their forte the Obama Pentagon was quite at home with supplying arms to the so-called “rebels” in Syria with weapons .Articles abound on the internet purporting Ambassador Stevens being moved into the embassy (apparently a makeshift affair) for the express purpose of overseeing recruitment and arming the insurgency some of which were known to be linked to none other than Al Qaeda. Not being a picture at all pleasing to a faithful constituency so close to a major election a fierce and organized attack was downplayed as a spontaneous reaction against a supposed cyber insult to Mohammed by the Obama propaganda machine with the result being….dead men tell no tales.
