It is only February, and already this year the administration has announced it is allowing the transfer to China of the high technology battery systems for weapons and defense guidance on which the American taxpayers invested millions of dollars and years of research and development. In the famous words of Hillary on Benghazi, ”What difference does it make.” So what if we hand over another big chunk of our security and sovereignty to the Chinese Communist? After all, we are already paying China so much interest on the debt Obama has burdeded our children with in his first four years to completely fund the Chinese army payroll.
Besides, the ”justice” department is too busy suing a Belgium-owned beer company to prevent them from buying a Mexican-owned beer company for fear American drunk drivers might have to pay too much for beer. That seems like a no-brainer way to save a few children?
Meanwhile, in Milwaukee, the ever-so-effective Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms (what an ironic collection of agencies) managed to run another one of their infamous sting operations. Unlike Fast and Furious during which we actually collected money for the semi-automatic rifles we sold to Mexican drug dealers, the ATF clowns in Milwaukee were able to lose a fully automatic machine gun when it got stolen out of their car parked in the parking lot outside the store where they were paying excessive prices for guns brought in off the street.
Now, it may be reported by the mainstream press that the operation was successful since the ATF was able to get a few guns off the street. But a closer look reveals a little different point of view. For example, it was reported that the agents had paid $1200 for a S&W 9mm with a ‘street value’ of about $400. That means the guy gets to buy 3 to replace the one he sold to the ATF guys who obviously learned the value of guns in a Chicago public school.
No, wait, that would be the guy who sold the one at 3 times its value while his buddies were out in the parking lot stealing the machine gun!
But at least “justice” will be working hard to keep the price of beer from keeping up with the rising price of everything else.
To review what this story is about; the “justice” department which sold guns to Mexican drug dealers is spending taxpayer money to keep beer prices low while the bureau that governs the sale of guns inside America is allowing criminals to triple their money selling guns to the ATF sting store at stupidly high prices. In the end, the criminals get new guns, lots of bargain priced beer, and still have plenty of money for pizzas.
Maybe the bad guys in Milwaukee can use the cardboard from the pizzas for target practice with the stolen machine gun!
At least we can all feel safer knowing that when youngsters in Thornton public schools begin their criminal careers bullying, the school principle down there will crack down and make those bullies keep a diary. That way, when one of these guys become a drunken bully with a cheap six-pack and an illegal gun, the defense team can show the court where “we” the public failed.
Elsewhere in the news, the unemployment rate rose in January but the mainstream press reported the ‘economy added more than 157,000 jobs’ as if that were a good thing! The problem is the U.S. needs to add about twice that many to start to recover and reduce the debt to China.
And if all of that wasn’t confusing, consider the huge tax increase on the so-called rich to reduce the deficit. It is already 100% spent – plus an additional $10billion added to the debt. It was all spent on the “emergency relief” for the northeast storm victims. That’s efficiency for the Congress, it only took one bill to spend the entire amount of extra projected revenue and increase the debt.
