Mexico’s greatest arms dealer blames U.S. citizens for cartel gun violence

Written By: Bob - May• 03•13

There is a special sort of loathing that Barack Obama has for the United States that seems to manifest itself seemingly every time he steps foot on foreign soil. Speaking in front of an audience in Mexico, he blamed the United States for supplying Mexico with the guns used in cartel drug violence that has terrorized much of that country:

“Most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” President Obama said during a speech at Mexico’s Anthropology Museum. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms. And as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right, and I always will.”

“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do,” Obama added.

Obama has blamed the American people numerous times for gun violence in Mexico. In 2009, the President, Attorney General Eric Holder,  and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton repeatedly claimed that “90-percent” of guns recovered from cartel crime scenes were traced to the United States.

The “90-percent lie” was conclusively debunked by Obama’s own Department of Justice in sworn testimony before Congress, as an ATF official was forced to admit that just 8% of firearms recovered from the scenes of gun crimes in Mexico came from the United States.

Of the 8% of American “civilian” guns recovered at crime scenes, 302 murders of those murders were traced directly to guns smuggled to the Sinaloa cartel via Operation Fast and Furious, a weapons smuggling plot that transferred 2,500 guns to narco-terrorists that the Obama Administration wants to ban.

Via Operation Fast and Furious and up to nine other gun smuggling operations, the Obama Adminstration provided potentially tens of thousand of “civilian” guns to different cartels. Put bluntly, the Obama Administration is likely the greatest supplier of American “civilian” firearms to the Mexican cartels.

The Obama Administration also definitively the top supplier of military weapons to the cartels, via massive arms shipments to the Mexican government, despite the fact that significant amounts of military arms shipped to the Mexican government winds up in cartel hands via corruption. At least 10,30 Ar-15s were known diverted to drug cartels… and yet, the Obama Administration kept supplying them with massive amounts of weapons, nearly 10 times what was sold during the Bush Administration.

Barack Obama is the top gun dealer to Mexican drug cartels, yet he has the gall to blame you for his crimes.

  1. Thanks for writing what I was thinking when I read about his speech. When they are not blaming law abiding gun owners for terrorist bombings, they have to revert to the other lie. Business as usual for this bunch.

    While I seriously doubt the messiah is the ‘greatest arms dealer” to the cartel thugs; after the revelations of F&F the audacity of this narcissistic punk is an insult to everyone who pays attention. Keep pushing Barry the boychild; someday peddling your agenda will come back to bite your sorry ass.

    The sheer audacity is astounding, breathtaking. Has he no conscience.

      I had some long winded response – but you boiled it down perfectly.

    • Jeremy says:

      Everything about this “government”, both parties, is a lie. A giant dog-n-pony show to keep the masses distracted and infighting while they loot and destroy this nation.

    It’s hard to think a man with the stones to go to a foreign city and blame his treason on his political opponents will ever willingly give up the White House. I on’t see a peaceful transition of power happening. Even to another Dem. Not from a guy willing to blame his body count on others.

    Piece of Shit.

  8. And now we have Obie’s boy Rahm blaming the rest of America because his, Obie’s, and Holders town Chicago have more KIA than Afghanistan did. If they could just only stop those ‘other’ states from having guns, Chicago crime would cease to exist. (in their warped fantasy perception).

    So riddle me this:

    If the other states who allow firearms ownership are the problem, then why are the murder rates in those states so low, and Chicago is so high? Because only THUGS have guns in Chicago while the law abiding citizens are disarmed victims.

  9. Obama and Holder must have slept through the majority of their Constitutional Law classes…oh wait…wasn’t Obama the “professor”?…anyways, every time they don’t get their way, they start to act like a bunch of unruly five year olds whining at the store because they didn’t get their ‘toy’…

      My four year old has better manners, also knows better than to blame others for her actions….. how sad that a four year old is better behaved than the trash running our beautiful country into the ground!!!

    That F&F will not be pursued by anyone with a bully pulpit to charge government officials with criminal actions is disgusting. The other 9 or so gun walking schemes go unnoticed and hardly reported on, even the one to US gang members. And as history has shown, the next administration, even if it is Republican, will not pursue the corruption and criminality in the Obama Administration. It seems we have become to civilized for even tarring and feathering corrupt officials.

    I have a concern, that unless the American people see a prosecutor with enough guts to go after this corruption and criminality, there will be a spark that will set off a confrontation as happened during Australia’s December 3, 1854 Eureka Stockade confrontation with British Troops. The difference is that the Aussies were not well armed then, and certainly not now with their present gun confiscation policy, as are we Americans.

  11. Tucker says:

    It is not only Obama who has a special loathing, hatred and contempt for America and its founding stock and their traditions. I remember when Clinton was in the White House – and literally every time either of the Clinton’s or Gore’s were out of the country on some expensive junket – they would also spew endless tirades of hate and venom and derogatory baloney at American and its founding people.

    Same disease affects the RINOs and the Neo-Cons in the GOP.

  12. Treker says:

    I want Obama to stay in Mexico and drink the water , buy from street vendors and eat the fruit . That would cure his problem of being full of shit.
    The real damage Obama is doing is dividing this country for generations to come. But remember why Obama hates the founders . The blacks fought WITH the British against George Washington . Whether they were freemen or freed slaves at first chance they fought against the founding of this country . Not all but 90% did.

    • SDN says:

      Do you have a cite for this that doesn’t involve Stormfront, you racist troll.

      • Treker says:

        Read Nathanael Greene’s letters and diaries . Plus the further info can be found from Martha Washington where she feared for her life and it was Abigail Adams that gave her support. Plus there is plenty of lithographs showing their support . Type in Ethiopian Army and see the results . Know your actual history before using the race card.

    Snipers.

  14. MHJ says:

    I take this as proving beyond a reasonable doubt that Fast and Furious was an attempt to use Mexican cartel violence as a lever to get gun control in the US, and that Obama personally OK’d it.

    There is no other way to deal with his statement.

  15. wallry says:

    Frankly I’m surprised at the the comments here.
    You guys are very nice and well behaved.
    So I won’t use the fowl words I’d like to and ruin it.

    The Obama administration is a nightmare, it has been from the beginning. Obama ENJOYS humiliating the U.S and President Bush, etc., he gets off on humiliation and feels powerful — he is obviously childish, and very stupid for insulting and apologizing for America whenever he travels. He doesn’t give a damn about the American people, just what he wants is all he is concerned about. Obama is a baby-killer, and so is Hillary Clinton, they have no regard for human life, have no character and definitely no compassion or empathy for babies, he and Clinton never say a word about the deaths, so many babies, hundreds, thousands and millions of human life and whole generations of people killed, our country is not civilized anymore, the government is no different than the nazis were, exterminating people for POPULATION CONTROL. Americans are not the same people they were or they wouldn’t let these murders take place??? I don’t understand how Americans can tolerate so much murder of innocents and human life happening every day. I will never lunderstand or comprehend such atrocities.
