No Guns for You!

  • A .50-caliber rifle found at Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s hideout in Mexico was funneled through the gun-smuggling investigation known as Fast and Furious, sources confirmed Tuesday to Fox News.

    A .50-caliber is a massive rifle that can stop a car, or as it was intended, take down a helicopter.

    After the raid on Jan. 8 in the city of Los Mochis that killed five of his men and wounded one Mexican marine, officials found a number of weapons inside the house Guzman was staying, including the rifle, officials said.

    When agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives checked serial numbers of the eight weapons found in his possession, they found one of the two .50-caliber weapons traced back to the ATF program, sources said.
Not seeing much of this covered in the mainstream media for some reason. You'd think that a president's people running guns to Mexican drug lords might be an issue in this age of "ban everything."

The Obama administration is the largest single purveyor of firearms illegally transferred. But the biggest fault is there was no plan to track the firearms, hence the majority of them lost in Mexico somewhere. I guess the only way Obama and Holder could arm the cartels was to supply them with firearms thru a gov program.

Now, NOw we can't have the media broadcasting that a president and his attorney general are engaged in illegal gun running to drug cartels on the Mexican/U.S. boarder can we? Of Course we can't. OH yea one of those guns was used in the death of a border patrol agent.

Barack H Obama just lost a court case where they were hiding the Fast and furious documents.
By the time they are turned over, the Statute of limitations will have run.

May we assume that SCC is referring to the .50 caliber BARRETT? I carry one with a green laser aimer on a shoulder sling beneath my Burberry trench coat. I highly recommend it when taking midnight strolls through Garfield Park (011) and Englewood (007).

Ironically, you probably wouldn't need a .50 caliber rifle to stop Sean Penn's career in its tracks.

Not covered by mainstream media? Not covered by a LOT of channels.

If you want to really get a headache, try to watch Rachel Maddow on MSNBC at night. I make you a bet you cannot watch a solid week of her.

Just try watching one full night (one hour) of her.

As for covering up the Fast and Furious failure, it looks like Congress wants answers and the WH doesn't want them to get all the Emails. It should be interesting if the details come up to the surface.

Most people don't even have a clue as to what happened. The mainstream media looked the other way but now with Chapo in the middle of it, it's pretty hard to say it was a non-event.

These people like handing out guns to some people

The U.S. special mission in Benghazi and the nearby CIA annex were utilized in part to coordinate arms shipments to the jihadist rebels fighting the Syrian regime, with Ambassador Christopher Stevens playing a central role, documents an explosive new book released today.

But you will need additional background checks to buy a pistol.

The United Nation’s “sex-for-food” scandal continues to spread. As the human rights group Save the Children documents in a new report, U.N. peacekeepers in the war-torn, refugee-rich Liberia have been accused of selling food for sex from girls as young as 8. They are the latest victims in a growing tragedy that includes girls from Burundi, Ivory Coast, East Timor, Congo, Cambodia and Bosnia, proving correct a prediction made last year by the assistant secretary-general at the United Nations for peacekeeping operations. “We think this will look worse before it begins to look better,” she said last May after efforts to investigate peacekeepers in Congo had fallen short.

The independent report on the oil-for-food scandal, produced by a committee led by former U.S. Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Paul Volcker, was finally released in September. Criticizing the UN from top to bottom, the language of the report was crystal clear: “The inescapable conclusion from the committee’s work” is that the UN “needs thorough reform—and it needs it urgently.” We will see exactly how serious the lapses in judgment were at every level.

Top 10 Failures of the United Nations


Formed at the conclusion of World War II, the United Nations seeks to maintain international security and peace, while developing friendly relations amongst nations. Consisting of 192 members (for now), the UN has been largely successful in ending various conflicts and wars. Despite their success, they have also witnessed a number of catastrophic failures, resulting in millions of innocent civilian deaths. Below are ten failures of the UN since its inception.

In its recently concluded June session, the UN Human Rights Council ruled that any references to Islamic Shar’ia law are prohibited in the council chamber. Even outgoing UN rights chief Louise Arbour, who more than once sought to appease the UN’s anti-blasphemy squads, expressed her concern.

It all started when the heroic David Littman, undaunted by malicious attempts to expel him from the UN, tried to deliver a speech on violence against women and what Islamic scholars can do to prevent it. The Egyptian representative interrupted repeatedly and challenged the council president. “Regardless of the result of the vote — I couldn’t care less if I will win or lose this vote — my point is that Islam will not be crucified in this council!”

The Geneva-based United Nations Human Rights Council has long been regarded by the sane world as a farcical organization consisting of the world’s worst human rights abusers. It is a place where nations like Saudi Arabia – which still implements oppressive Sharia laws, subjugates women and bans all religions except for Islam – sits in judgment of other nations and dictates to them ways in which to address human rights abuses. In metaphoric terms, it’s akin to the fox guarding the chicken coop.

Driven by blind anti-Semitism and hatred for the “infidel Yahuds” who defile “holy Arab-Muslim soil,” Israel frequently and almost exclusively finds itself on the receiving end of the UNHRC’s hypocritical invective. Occasionally, however, the democracy stalwarts of the UNHRC will challenge the human rights records of other democracies. On Monday, the Council zeroed in on the United States and took great pleasure in needling the world’s greatest democracy

WOW. Another Obama Administration legacy. A federal scam that allowd a 1,000 guns, big guns too falling into the hands of gangs in another soverign nation that also ended with the impeachment of our best and favorite attorney general ever; the honorably ignorant Eric Holder Esq. in my opinion. I wonder what would happen if another nation did the same to us? Can you imagine the outrage of the brain dead liberals whining about that? It makes me want to barf when I see his picture at a particular Federal building. People are working there to protect the citizens and fairly enforce the laws and this mutt is on the wall with his stupid smile and our flag next to him. RIP USBP Brian Terry.

The report I read said that 1400 of the 2000 weapons involved with Obama's "Fast and Furious" fiasco were lost. Of those, 34 were .50 cal rifles. Funny how you don't hear much about this cluster flop anymore. Yet Obama's lips are continually flapping about guns in the hands of citizens.

The Feds have a way of twisting accountability into charges for a lot of bullshit things like charging and convicting former duffus Gov Ryan with scandalous stuff that his employees did but they will not charge former Attorney General Eric "the Red" Holder with murder foe getting the border patrol agent murdered with a government provided rifle from the failed and criminal"Fast and Furious"program.
If a border town came up with and implemented the same program with the same results the Feds would have indicted the entire town and convicted 95%.

If you remember at the time Sparkelfarts, The Great Sultan of Stupid, and his good bud Eric Holder were blaming evil gun dealers in the Southwest for supplying guns to the drug cartels. These dealers where being blamed for selling weapons that where not even legal to sell in the US. Turns out the cartels where importing them directly from China. It was Eric Holder that signed off on "Project Gunrunner" which the press later named "Fast and Furious" over the objections of ATF, and DEA field agents in the Southwest. Gun dealers did not trust Eric Holder and recorded all of the phone calls with the Fed's assuring them they where covered, and even obtained signed letters to this effect. The whole thing blew up with the murder of United States Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry with a Kalashnikov. The gun dealers in the Phoenix, Arizona area where covered as they had the recordings and the letters. The MSM ignored Race Baiter General Holder's role in Fast in Furious and continued to blame evil gun dealers for everything.

I said this once, I'll say it again, outside of the Benghazi attack on the US Embassy this is the worse scandal for President Obama. For anyone who is going to say that former President George Bush started this program and that Obama was just continuing the program, you don't know what you are talking about. The difference between the two is the difference between night and day. Several differences are these: Bush was working with the Mexican Government, Obama did not inform the Mexican Government of the operation. Bush worked with Law Enforcement, Obama did not. Bush encouraged local law enforcement to make arrest of any straw purchaser of weapons, Obama did not. In fact Obama told local law enforcement that they would lose Federal Money if they did. Gun shop owners who suspected straw purchasers could inform the local police of the identity of such purchasers. Obama told the gun shop owners not to share information not with the local police but only with the ATF. If a gun shop owner did not want to sell any weapons to any suspected straw purchasers under Bush if they did not want to sell they did not have to, under Obama they could not. They had to sell the guns. Under Bush the long guns had tracking devices, under Obama they did not.Under Bush, when the tracking devices were no longer sending signals the program ended. Under Obama, the program ended when one of the ATF Agents complained to a local US Congressmen, when he got disciplined. This agent got disciplined when he went to his bosses and objected to how the program was being run. Under Obama, some agents who had misgivings were discipline and one or two got fired. Under Bush the object of the program was to track the guns and in conjunction with the Mexican Government make arrest. Under Obama, the object was to flood the Mexican cartels with weapons and HOPE THAT THEY COMMIT NUMEROUS SHOOTING SO THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION COULD STRIP THE AMERICAN CITIZENS OF THEIR SECOND AMENDMENTS RIGHTS. The last and most important difference is that under the Obama Program was that one Border Agent was killed with one of the guns and that a undercover DEA was killed in Mexico investigating where and who the guns were going too. Obama, Holder, and Hillary Clinton(Secretary of State at the time) should have been impeached over this program.

But wait... For the cynical, it means we don't have to pay to store it and maintain it anymore... if I was a pessimist, I could see someone in a large bureaucracy doing fist bumps that all that stuff is no longer in the inventory, and no longer requires $$$ to maintain or modernize it.

On another matter, the (deceased) ambassador had the grade equivalence to a four star general... You think mere CPD LEOs are the only ones being used to provide traction under a large vehicle?

I would recommend, if your a member of OPS, show ID, 20 percent off. the gun shop, owners name is Bosco. across from the 1st. district, On 11th. Street, just east of state. Right across the 1st district entrance suite 2. They got the power to give you the weapon without waiting if you state you won't use the gat for 3 days. $ 4 00 surcharge.

While your their, tour CPD headquarters building and the crime lab with tons of confiscated guns on display. Some from the roaring 20' and the death mask of John Dillinger. They give tours at 1121 South State Street, same building as 1st. district, enter off of State street. Free parking in the rear alley, see the Watchman there. Throw him a deuce or two. for the building. all week 9am to 5 pm, see the CPD officer standing by the elevators. Best day to go is Thursday, the crime lab people let you watch them clean guns on display.
If you slip the retired copper that does the tour a couple of bucks, he will take you 3 floor down in the sub basement full of more old shotguns the police used in the 70'. Wear booths,, it is wet there.

06:47Hrs Truly in keeping with the sarcasm theme of the blog. Sadly, most persons won't follow unless they were born before 1970. To our younger readers, CPD had the first Crime Lab in the U.S. and it was Shortshanks, AKA The Little Moron, who disbanded the lab. Now the ISP processes CPD evidence. The Daley Destruction Decades still has its effects and will continue for years.
