Barack Obama blames United States guns for the violence in Mexico

May 3, 2013

 Barack Obama was in Mexico today and he claimed that most of the guns that are used in crimes in Mexico come from the United States. My first thought when I heard that statement, which can be heard here, is where have I heard this before because it sounds very familiar. It did not take me long to remember: The year was 2009 and it was Hillary Clinton who stated that America’s “insatiable demand for illegal drugs” and our “inability to prevent weapons from being illegally smuggled across the border” was partially responsible for the gun violence in Mexico.

  She claimed that 90% of the weapons recovered at the scenes of violent crimes in America could be traced back to American gun dealers. It did not take long for that number to be proven to be a lie, so the Obama regime began implementing a program to prove the lie. That program was known as Fast and Furious. The United States government forced gun dealers at the border to sell weapons to known Mexican drug lords in the hope that the weapons would be recovered at violent crime scenes. 

  That plan went awry when, in addition to the hundreds of murdered Mexicans, Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata were murdered with weapons the Obama regime sold to Mexican criminals. 

    That is the point when I realized that technically Barack Obama is right, there is some blame to be placed on America for the gun violence in Mexico. But Barack Obama was using this speech to push gun control on law abiding citizens in America instead of focusing the blame where it should be placed–on Hillary Clinton, Janet Napolitano, Eric Holder, and possibly on Barack Obama himself.

  After all, Eric Holder admitted that the 2000 plus guns sold to Mexican criminals under Fast and Furious would turn up at crime scenes for years to come, but now that he has been proven right Barack Obama has no interest in getting to the bottom of the Fast and Furious scandal because he is only interesting in usurping the second amendment rights of law abiding American citizens. It must be remembered at this point that when Darrell Issa’s investigation was closing in on Eric Holder, and held him in Contempt of the Congress, Barack Obama sealed the records using Executive Privilege and for all intents and purposes shut the door on the truth.

  My second thought after hearing what Barack Obama said today in Mexico was this guy has some balls blaming America for his own policies but then I remembered the propaganda arm of the Obama regime, otherwise known as the mainstream media, provided Barack Obama with cover by refusing to report on this scandal so it is no wonder he felt emboldened to once again drag out a lie about who was providing Mexico with the weapons.

  It is like Fast and Furious never happened but Barack Obama inadvertently refocused the debate back onto the scandal if only the Republicans have the guts to take another look at Fast and Furious. However at this point the Republicans are no better than the Democrats and if we ever want to get to the bottom of this scandal it will be because the American people decided to vote for a third party, and that party should be the New Federalist Party.

    Tha gall of that man! I probabaly assumes, correctly, that Fast and Furious was a looooong time ago and the average American has forgotten about it by now…..that is if they were ever aware, in the first place.

      Agreed Jim, he knows he can get away with this because so many people don’t even know about Fast and Furious and of course we have the MSM to blame for that!

    Sure many guns in Mexico come from the U.S. And president Obama is quick to point that out. However, what he fails to tell you is that Mexico has very strict gun control laws, I know this from having lived there. The criminal element in Mexico is quite aware that law-abiding citizens for the most part are unarmed and unable to protect themselves from the violent drug gangs running rampant. Much of the violence in Mexico is caused by its own gun laws and Obama’s open border policies that turns a blind eye on gun traffic going south. South bound traffic is seldom searched on this side of the border and once it crosses the border a few dollars put in the outstretched hands of a Mexican official will assure safe passage of anything. For Obama to point a finger at the U.S. for the problems in Mexico is the height of hypocricy and just more pandering to the Mexican government.

      Never let the facts get in the way of an argument, that is Obama credo.

    You know what’s really sad Steve? Is that we have to continue to remind people about the Fast and Furious scandal. What’s worse yet is a Attorney General still being held in criminal contempt for obstructing an investigation and keeping his job. He truly has no shame and no integrity and the Republicans have no backbone.

      I couldn’t agree more John! The American people should be calling for Eric Holder’s resignation but sadly most do not even know about this scandal.

    The hypocrisy that IS Barack Hussein Obama knows NO bounds… He never saw a foreign land he wouldn’t embrace and never saw anything in the USA to care about, so, he lies, panders and gives this nation away…

    This feels like Obama’s ultimate insult to America and our way of life. He tried talking out of both sides of his mouth, declaring how our Constitution guaranteed our right to keep and bear arms, but in the end, he just couldn’t help but blame us for Mexico’s problems. It is sickening and disgusting to hear him cast the blame on America and our way of life, when he is partially to blame for Fast and Furious.

      I am so sick and tired of listening to this man talk down America and Americans, it is really growing old but this is who he is. he cannot help himself.

    Well, the latest poll shows him underwater in approval. Hope springs eternal.

      I hope there is still hope!

    There is still hope, Steve.
