Skip to comments.Obama: Americans ďAre Root Cause of Violence Thatís Been Happening Here in MexicoĒ
Posted on 05/04/2013 1:17:08 AM PDT by Olog-hai
President Barack Obama, speaking in Mexico City on Friday, said the United States is responsible for much of the crime and violence in Mexico because of the demand for drugs and the illegal smuggling of guns across the southern border.
Obama acknowledged the illegal smuggling of guns into Mexico by American criminals, but did not mention the Justice Departments Operation Fast and Furious that allowed the flow of about 2,000 U.S. guns to Mexican drug trafficking organizations. Fast and Furious began in the fall of 2009 and was halted in December 2010 after two of the weapons from the DOJ gun walking program were found at the murder scene of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

It is the money. The drugs are sold, and the money flows through Mexico. The MEXICAN drug traffickers buy off politicians, and hire thugs to cut off people’s heads. Guns are a drop in the bucket. The problem is the money.
So many Blacks have accused everyone who is against his policies and rhetoric of not finding ANYTHING to like about Obama, of not giving him a chance or giving him his due.
But I would bet now that even many of them, while being loathe to admit it, do not like what they are seeing from him in Mexico.
Apart from that observation, Obama is committing impeachable offenses.
And I’m wondering, can we just tie ALL Democrat Obama locksteppers with this outrage??
Notice while Obama is away doing this, Harry Reid is yapping that the Tea Party is like anarchists in being against all government.
No, Harry, the Tea Party is average Americans. And your lies about them look even worse, even more absurd, when what you need to be doing is answering on the record for YOUR president’s outrage in Mexico.
Particularly those Americans running guns to the Sinaloa cartel.
What a Cakeboy Under Nuts Teabagger ...
Of a president
Worst ever and then some
Stupid white people.....the Ungodly.....and Black zombies....the Curry and Chopsticks crowd too.....
Thanks so much
it was it Obama who ran guns to Mexican drug gangs to put the blame on the U.S. and on guns
And the news media hides this “fast and furious” scheme of Obama’s like they hide bengazi , Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders and other crimes
we live in the matrix created by the news media
news is when r Marco Rubio takes a drink of water, and a gay basketball player announces it's gay but none of Obama’s and congress', and government bureaucrats’ abuses are news
Yes, Obama’s Fast & Furious was/is the root cause of violence in Mexico.
Asking for clarification
Is the “N” word okay to use here?
I was under the impression it wasn’t.
And to the poster: We have Obama on everything wrong that he is and does. He gives it away. It’s impeachable in my opinion. And has nothing to do with race but with his actions/words.
Not only am I outraged at Obama’s arrogance for going to a foreign country and blaming Americans for HIS misdeeds, I’m equally pissed at the low-information, low-quality types who voted to put that Marxist, anti-American POS in power.
Obama and democrats hate Americans
they hate America and our freedoms too
He’s talking and acting, not like a U.S. president, but like the president of some foreign country.
He really, really hates America and Americans.
Every time I pass a car with a BO bumper sticker I wonder about how people could have been so misled.
Its our fault that we elected a clown who shipped guns in a three stooges style attempt to catch illegal guns.
Its also our fault that the people who did it wasn’t thrown in a prison cell.
Other than that...Screw Mexico. A third world dung heap.
Fixed it. Oh, and FUBO
Google/Bing check showed a ton of articles on this “90 percent” myth yet again.
to Obama and the rest of you democrat villains:
I work 10 hours a day to pay for your government’ s fake Global warming studies and welfare for 3rd world immigrants. I'm too busy working for that so now I'm causing violence in Mexico? I just want the gov to leave me alone and all I do is work and spend time reading.
This article up on Drudge now. I won’t post it because it covers same story, but I love the headline: “Obama Blames Mexican Violence on US Guns.”
“Every time I pass a car with a BO bumper sticker I wonder about how people could have been so misled.”
I remember learning about the NAZIs in school, and wondering how an entire country could have been so misled. Now we’re seeing it in our own country. First socialists get control of education and media. Then they enforce their version of PC, first with social stigma and later with deadly consequences. I figure we’re about 80% there.
Hey asshat, take your KKK cr*p back to the Democrat party that created it.
It’s too bad that Mexico won’t have him arrested and at least questioned about his role in Fast & Furious. At any rate, an American president should be publicly pointing out that 90% (or whatever the number is) of illegal aliens that are in the United States are either Mexicans or cross through Mexico.
Those of us, the so called silent majority need to start getting involved and making noise. NOW. . . .
One day obama... you will be investigated and tried for your crimes.
The media has learned.
Reagan cut through the media by going directly to the American people.
Bush43 tried the same thing, so the media decided to stop broadcasting his speeches.
Clinton’s lies were fact-checked by Drudge, Fox and the alternative media, forcing the mainstream media to cover it.
Now, the mainstream media just ignores every lie Obama makes, including ignoring the alternative media.
At the same time, the number of people reading news of any kind is dropping like a rock. Alternative media is not breaking through anymore.
When 42% of the people think Obamacare is not law yet, you know we have a major problem.
News today comes from Comedy Central, Twitter and Facebook.
If you are on Twitter or Facebook, use your account to post stories. We either fight them where the battle is taking place or we will surely lose.
So is obama admitting after 5 years he has not done jack S about this?
According to the last US Custom’s Agency report I read, the largest gun-running operation originates in Venezuela. The guns are smuggled to Central America and then into Mexico.
Why would a Mexican pay $1,000 for an American rifle when he can find something similar for half the price coming in from Guatemala?
Obama’s 90% claim is a big lie:
The Germans allwed themselves to be disarmed. We will not.
After the Boston lockdown, I don’t know anymore
I have this one on my car:
Rasmussen says he is down to 45% approval... 53% disapprove... someone is listening to the truth.
Speak for yourself, Coke Boy.
