    Too bad to check: Project Gunrunner was funded by … the stimulus

    I really did think it was too bad to check, despite posts about it at PJM, Weasel Zippers, and Free Republic. But I checked. You’ll find complete PDF and text versions of the final stimulus bill right here. Scroll down to page 16 (of 407!) in the PDF version and behold:



    For an additional amount for ‘‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.​
    And to think, you guys say the stimulus didn’t produce anything. It produced guns for Mexican drug cartels, didn’t it? Says Ben Domenech, in a stroke of perfect black humor: “Shovel ready.”



    Actually, as Ed reminds me via e-mail, this is old news. The boss emeritus was all over the stimulus angle to Gunrunner back in March. But since only recently has this story really begun to bubble, replete with growing big-media interest, stuff we already knew is becoming stuff we forgot and then remembered and became horrified at all over again. Rather than have me bore you here, then, take five minutes and read Michelle’s post. The One was asked about Operation Fast and Furious at the time — which is under the umbrella of Gunrunner — and insisted that neither he nor Holder authorized it. In that case, I’m really looking forward to finding out which member(s) of Congress decided to earmark $10 million for Gunrunner and what they thought would be done with the money. Someone in the executive branch must have requested the funding for the ATF. Who?



    See what happens when Congress doesn’t read the bills?

    Remember that it was the Apollo Alliance that wrote the stimulus.
    Remember that it is George Soros that funds the Apollo Alliance.

    and also remember that one Apollo Alliance board member Jeff Jones was co-founder of the Weather Underground with Bill Ayres. It all fits together like a jig saw puzzle when you get all the pieces. The most influential positions of the federal government have been infiltrated by self avowed communists and "reformers".

    Interview with captured Zeta druglord Rejon Aguilar -

    Rejón Aguilar: They are bought in the U.S. The buyers (on the U.S. side of the border) have said in the past that sometimes from they would acquire them from the U.S. Government itself.

    Well, there you have it... what more do you want? Obama was right. Transparent government in action.

    We're gonna fund the drug war (war on some drugs as the libertarians like to call it, and they are right) by being users

    We're gonna fund the corrupt government of Mexico with infusing huge amounts of cash to "fight" the cartels.

    We're gonna prosecute to the fullest extent of the law any ICE/BP agents who discharge their weapons

    We're gonna process and then give free medical assistance to Mexican nationals with major medical problems, all they have to do is surrender once they are on our side of the border

    We're going to BORROW money from China, to GIVE it to a paid informant for the DEA and/or FBI who the Dept of Justice already knows about, so we can allow weapons bought here to go THERE, to HIM and his THUGS, so they can MURDER the US AGENTS we have helping the Mexican govt, not to mention the Mexican citizens caught in the cross fire when those guys shoot at each other... turf wars and all...

    uhhhh wait a sec... WTF? what was that last one????

    How much did Obama know, and when did he know it? (remember the Iran/Contra scandal?)

    The blame game is about to get really funny in the beltway, trust me! :D
