Gun grabbing California Democratic State Senator arrested for arms trafficking

March 29, 2014

 leland-yee-arrested-kpixLast week was not a good week for Democrats at the State level with four indictments being handed down. America’s Watchtower did not cover those stories but there is one in particular that is so ironic it can be ignored no longer and that is the story of Leland Yee, the California Democratic State Senator, who was arrested for arms trafficking.

  Leland Yee just happens to be a gun control advocate who has voted several times to deny Californians their second amendment rights and who sponsored a bill to ban assault weapons in the state of California.

  Here is the story.

A state senator who authored gun control legislation asked for campaign donations in exchange for introducing an undercover FBI agent to an arms trafficker, according to court documents unsealed Wednesday.

 Apparently he wanted to get legal guns off the street so that he could then sell illegal weapons to the same people he is pretending to be trying to protect from gun violence. He didn’t like the competition.

  In addition to this he was also allegedly accepting bribes for his vote, but then there is the part of the story that it seems is being largely ignored and that is how this all ties to a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines.

Yee discussed helping the agent get weapons worth $500,000 to $2.5 million, including shoulder-fired missiles, and explaining the entire process of acquiring them from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines to bringing them to the U.S.

  This was more than simply an arm trafficking scheme for  he was allegedly seeking to help someone purchase not only the same types of assault weapons he voted to ban but also such weapons as shoulder fired missiles. Now why in hell would he want to help bring these types of weapons into the United States? And who was going to end up with these weapons? Was Yee simply interested in the money and did not care what happened to the weapons once they were here? 

  This might provide some insight, here is what he said to an undercover agent:

“There’s a part of me that wants to be like you,” he told the undercover agent, according to the affidavit. “You know how I’m going to be like you? Just be a free agent there.”

  He apparently was intending to head to the Philippines and become a “free agent” there once things began to happen here. Again, it makes you wonder why, if he is found guilty, he was interested in helping to bring shoulder fired missiles into the United States, where were these weapons going to end up–I find it highly unlikely gangs were going to end up with these weapons–and what that person intending to do with these weapons?

  And does anyone else find it interesting that he was able to explain to the undercover agent how to go about smuggling these types of weapons into the United States from a Muslim separatist group in the Philippines? It is almost like he has done it before.

  There are still many unanswered questions but I think there is much more to this story than we are being told.

    Who the hell this thinks he is, trafficking guns, Etic Holder?
    He must have pissed off somebody if Feinstein and Boxer gave the green light to go after this jerk.

      yeah, he learned from the best but apparently he did not learn well enough because he got caught.

    “Bad week for Democrats”….compared to this scandal a minute administration I’d say it’s more of a typical even quiet week for the corruptocrats………nothing to see here….we found another debris field…and a Kardashian is having their period….

      You are right stink, we here on the left coast know this story has no legs. The lame stream media doesn’t have, as Obama would say, “a smidgen” of interest in taking on a leftist and an ethnic. After all, what he does in his “spare time” is of no concern as long as he continues to fight for the radical left.

      Very true, just another typical week for the Democrats. And of course the media is ignoring it, but imagine their outrage if he had closed a bridge…..

    Dear Senator Steinberg,
    I can’t begin to express my contempt and disgust for the culture of corruption you have presided over, if not fostered there in the Senate. THREE of your fellow Democrats, THREE of your fellow senators, THREE of your friends are out of control, and you don’t care. Of course you are embarrassed. Of course your are angry they got caught. But as long as they fight for an extreme leftist agenda, you really don’t mind. As long as you keep your super-majority, you really don’t mind.
    The left controls the media, so you know they will protect you no matter what, you have nothing to fear. You know you can count on the union-controlled government workers to pour money into your coffers, so you have nothing to worry about there either.
    I only wish you hated crime and corruption, bribes and dishonesty as much as you hate small business and conservatives.
    I regret you are my representative, I regret you control the Senate and I regret the harm you have done to California.
    Sadly, Bruce Booher

    That’s the only gun control I want to see: keeping them off the hands of these scumbags.

    They’re dropping like flies in Ca. Unfortunately, there are so many flies they’ll never run out of scumbags like this.

      Three of them last week, not too bad. You just have to knock them off faster than they can breed, but that won’t be easy.

        Not even possible Steve. UC Davis, UC Berkeley, UC LA, and all the rest are churning them out faster than I can imagine.

        All too true!

    Dear Senator Feinstein,
    I was sorry to hear about your friend, “Shrimp Boy” Chow. I read in the Sacramento Bee Friday, that you had a close enough relationship that you wrote to, and about him, and sang his praise.
    Now I know why you have never responded to any of my emails. After all, all I am is a hard working, tax paying, small business owner; someone you have demonstrated you have no interest in helping.
    Your good friend, Leeland Yee, like you, is a strong advocate of gun control. Like you, he wants to make sure the average citizen doesn’t have the right to defend themselves. UNLESS YOU BUY YOUR GUNS FROM HIM! I also learned from Yee that I have failed to bribe my elected representatives to get their attention, and really, when you think of the harm the “progressive agenda” has done to us small business owners, Yee’s going price of 20k is a pretty good deal. Add that to your other friends Calderon and Wright in your Democrat controlled state and you have quite a team.
    I look forward to the elections this year. Your other good friend, the corrupt Harry Reid looks like he, and your left wing agenda are on their way out. Let’s hope your culture of corruption will be gone for good.
    Looking forward to a big change in 2015!
    Bruce Booher
