Operation Fast and Furious (Sex)

We know two pivotal facts about Operation Fast & Furious, aka the Gunwalker scandal:

  1. The U.S. Justice Department arranged for thousands of American weapons to cross our Southern border, knowingly placed them in Mexican criminal hands, and sat back and watched while hundreds of Mexicans and some Americans (including border patrol officers) were then killed with those guns.
  2. Eric Holder, when asked about Operation Fast & Furious, lied under oath about what he knew and when he knew it.

What we also know is that the Obama White House has put pressure on the MSM to smother the story, and that the media has complied.  Even CBS, which was diligently covering the story thanks to the intrepid Sharyl Attkisson, seems to be clamping down on her to keep the White House happy.  In a normal world, these facts — lies, dishonesty, murder, cover-ups, media manipulation, etc. — would have the media baying for presidential blood, instead of falling into line with the cover-up.  But we don’t live in a normal world.

My first thought upon reading about media passivity in the face of a hot story was, “Well, of course.  Obama’s their guy.  They’re not going to cover it.”  My second thought was, “But they covered the Clinton scandal.”  Which led to my third thought, which was the difference between the two scandals:  SEX.

The MSM cannot resist sex.  Try as it might, the moment there’s a breath of sex spicing up what would otherwise be a dry scandal (especially a dry scandal involving the political party they love), they’re all over it.

The obvious answer is to infuse sex into the Operation Fast and Furious reporting.  You can see that I’ve made a start with the title of this blog post.  Just imagine if Bob Owens, who is offering the absolute best coverage of the Gunwalker (or Operation Fast and Furious) scandal, borrowed a page from the MSM, and lied outright to insert sex into the scandal.  With apologies to Bob, who is the soul of honor, truly, I’ve interlineated my own comments into just the first few paragraphs of one of his substantive reports on what should be a lead story in every media outlet in America:

For months, congressional investigators have battled a recalcitrant White House and Department of Justice over [sex allegations connected to] Operation Fast and Furious [Sex], a [sexual] conspiracy that had the apparent goal of sending thousands of guns [and prostitutes] from American gun stores [and brothels] into Mexico. Recovery of the guns [and prostitutes] could be used as evidence to support the Obama administration’s 90-percent lie — and perhaps even serve a more nefarious goal.

That deception [about the guns and prostitutes] seems to be collapsing, as the long suspected proof of other gunwalking [and sexual malfeasance] operations was confirmed by Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News:

An administration source would not describe the Tucson OCDTF case. However, CBS News has learned that ATF’s Phoenix office led an operation out of Tucson called “Wide Receiver.” Sources claim ATF allowed guns [and hookers] to “walk” in that operation, much like Fast and Furious [Sex].

“Wide Receiver” joins Operation Fast and Furious [Sex] as the second named gunwalking [and prostitution] operation based in Arizona, but they do not appear to be the only gunwalking [and prostitution] operations that existed.

The White House has so far refused to answer inquires from Senator John Cornyn about two other suspected gunwalking [and prostitution] operations based out of the Houston and Dallas field operations areas. Additional gunwalking operations supplied drug gangs [and brothels] in Honduras from Florida, and supplied Chicago-area gangs [and brothels] from a gunwalking operation in Indiana.

Tawdry and dishonest?  Absolutely.  But I can guarantee you that the media and ordinary Americans would sit up and take notice if Fast and Furious wasn’t just about lying, cheating, and murder — at American Justice Department hands yet — but was, instead, about good old S-E-X.

    The only reason sex came into the mix over Clinton was to discredit Ken Starr (and therefore his investigation) as a retrograde sexual prude.  Otherwise, the MSM was up to its usual tricks.

    We could spread a story that any one of the agents,  gunsellers, or dead Mexican policemen was a closet conservative. That will cause the Mighty Mainstream Media to leap into investigative action.

    How about Eric Holder being serviced by underage Mexican prostitutes trafficked through ACORN?

    Regardless of motives, cerumendoc, sex sells.

    As I told the wives and girlfriends of my brave Frankish warriors before we kicked Muslim ass at Tours in 732, “Girls, tell your boys that there’s an extra heaping portion of nookie if they kick those Islamic twits back over the Pyrenees.” I guess my advice took because you should have seen my soldiers step lively that day!

    Later, when I was talking to the Arab army leader Abd er Rahman (before I had him mounted backwards on a donkey and sent south), I said, “Abd er—or whatever guttural noise you guys make—here’s what happened: My guys knew that they were facing several days of frisky, babelicious sex if they won. Your guys just would have gone back to the same old same old, namely raping their wives or concubines. Ain’t nothing worse than mounting a totally uninspired piece of wood that hates your guts.”

    He gave me that typical “What the hell are you talking about?” look” that Arabs always get whenever you talk about topics outside of advanced torture techniques or hatred for women and non-Muslims.
     

    Sorry to go off topic, but the mention of sex brought back some fantastic memories.

    I’m not sure, Book…the dinosaur media is so far in the tank for Obama that even if the scandal was about sex as well as murder, they would most likely downplay it as much as they dared.

    No question, though, references to sex do get attention. My recent post Advice from Goethe on How to Attract Women garnered considerably more comments than it would probably have gotten had I gone with the original title of Goethe on Society and Education.

    Sex is a double-edged sword. It grabs people’s attention, but it is quickly dismissed as a “private matter”. Unless it’s a Republican sex scandal, of course. Then it’s all about the hypocrisy!
    While the suspected underlying premise of Fast & Furious – creating a reason to restrict 2nd Amendment rights – is quite disturbing, I think it’s the body count that will eventually force this into the light. People can ignore complex monetary schemes or other bureaucratic shenanigans (see: Whitewater, medicare fraud, etc.). The grieving parents and loved ones of the victims are much harder to tune out.

    Here is the headline that will work:
     
    Fast and Furious supplies guns to Mexican Christian militias attacking homosexual rights groups

    Interesting Book, but I doubt it will work. Clinton never had an iron grip on the Left the way Obama’s minions of evil have. it’s the difference between a decadent play boy dictator and a tyrant with full control of a the secret police and execution death squads. The media will bow down to power in the end, that is the only thing you can be sure of.

    What I’m talking about is simple. Giving the media incentives and rewards, is worth almost nothing when the President has 10 times the punishment in store for them. So unless your reward is 20X as large as the punishment, don’t even consider doing it. It’s just a waste of time. However… if you had a reward and then backed it up with reliable threats of 10 times the punishment if the media didn’t go through with it, while Obama had 20 times the punishment but no reward… it might just work. For enough of the media for the rest to crack under pressure.

    One tweak to Jose’s headline:
     
    “Fast and Furious supplies guns to Catholic militias attacking homosexual rights groups”

  • Danny Lemieux

    How about, “White Catholic Males”?

    Had that been SADIE, it would have read “…supplies puns to…”.
