Fast and Furious Bombshell Explodes

According to a high-ranking Mexican drug cartel operative, who is currently in U.S. custody, there are some things that the American people are not being told about Fast and Furious. We obviously knew something was not being told behind the scenes because of Barack Obama issuing executive privilege and Holder being in contempt of Congress for failing to comply. But this makes even the sleepiest of people perk up their ears and pay attention.

Jesus Vicente Zambada-Niebla, known as the Sinaloa Cartel’s “logistics coordinator," has brought allegations that the gunwalking operation had nothing to do with tracking guns and everything to do with supplying them. According to Zambada-Niebla it was part of an elaborate agreement between the U.S. and Mexico's Sinaloa Cartel to take down rival cartels.

The Blaze reports,

Zambada-Niebla claims that under a “divide and conquer” strategy, the U.S. helped finance and arm the Sinaloa Cartel through Operation Fast and Furious in exchange for information that allowed the DEA, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and other federal agencies to take down rival drug cartels. The Sinaloa Cartel was allegedly permitted to traffic massive amounts of drugs across the U.S. border from 2004 to 2009 — during both Fast and Furious and Bush-era gunrunning operations — as long as the intel kept coming.

This pending court case against Zambada-Niebla is being closely monitored by some members of Congress, who expect potential legal ramifications if any of his claims are substantiated. The trial was delayed but is now scheduled to begin on Oct. 9.

Zambada-Niebla is reportedly a close associate of Sinaloa Cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and the son of Ismael “Mayo” Zambada-Garcia, both of which remain fugitives, likely because of the deal made with the DEA, federal court documents allege.

Zambada-Niebla believes that he, like the leadership of the Sinaloa cartel, was "immune from arrest or prosecution" because he also actively provided information to US federal agents.

Zamada-Niebla's attorney filled a motion for discovery in U.S. District Court in July 2011 which alleged the above agreement stating:

”the Sinaloa Cartel under the leadership of defendant’s father, Ismael Zambada-Niebla and ‘Chapo’ Guzman, were given carte blanche to continue to smuggle tons of illicit drugs into Chicago and the rest of the United States and were also protected by the United States government from arrest and prosecution in return for providing information against rival cartels which helped Mexican and United States authorities capture or kill thousands of rival cartel members."

If these accusations could be proven in court, it could have severe ramifications to both the Bush and Obama administrations. Of course the feds are denying the allegations, just like they denied the allegations of the ATF whistleblowers like Vince Cefalu, John Dodson, Jay Dobyns, and Peter Focelli. What would we expect from a corrupt administration?

Zambada-Niebla's lawyer is seeking government "documents, files, recordings, notes, and additional forms of evidence" that would support claims that federal agents personally assured Zambada-Niebla that "he would not be arrested, that the agents knew of his prior cooperation ... that they just wanted to continue receiving information ... “[and] that the arrangements with him had been approved at the highest levels of the United States government."

Zambada-Niebla's claims are confirmed by statements made last month by Guillermo Terrazas Villanueva, a spokesman for the Chihuahua state government in northern Mexico, who said,

U.S. agencies ”don’t fight drug traffickers,“ instead ”they try to manage the drug trade.”

Villaneuva, also pointed the finger at the U.S. in providing an example of how it fights the 'war on drugs" stating, "It's like pest control companies, they only control. If you finish off the pests, you are out of a job. If they finish the drug business, they finish their jobs."

There is also corroboration of the story with Humberto Loya-Castro, who was a high-ranking member of the Sinaloa Cartel. He was arrested in 1995. In 2008 prosecutors dismissed his case after he became an informant for the United States Attorney's Office for the Southern district of California in 2005. According to a motion filed in federal court:

“This strategy, which he calls ‘Divide & Conquer,’ using one drug organization to help against others, is exactly what the Justice Department and its various agencies have implemented in Mexico. In this case, they entered into an agreement with the leadership of the Sinaloa Cartel through, among others, Humberto Loya-Castro, to receive their help in the United States government’s efforts to destroy other cartels.”

“Indeed, United States government agents aided the leaders of the Sinaloa Cartel.”

Of course the federal government denies the accusations and claims the deal was only for Layo-Castro.

Though Zambada-Niebla was arrests by Mexican soldiers in 2009, and the U.S. was not involved in his arrest, he was extrdited to Chicago to face federal drug charges in February of 2010. He claimed that he had immunity via an agreement, but the DEA says that there was no "official" immunity deal, but they admitted that he may have acted as an informant.

While Zambada-Niebla's legal council requested records pertaining to Fast and Furious, they were denied. Here is the claim they made in their motion for the documents:

“It is estimated that approximately 3,000 people were killed in Mexico as a result of ‘Operation Fast and Furious,’ including law enforcement officers in the state of Sinaloa, Mexico, the headquarters of the Sinaloa cartel. The Department of Justice’s leadership apparently saw this as an ingenious way of combating drug cartel activities.”

“It has recently been disclosed that in addition to the above-referenced problems with ‘Operation Fast & Furious,’ the DOJ, DEA, and the FBI knew that some of the people who were receiving the weapons that were being allowed to be transported to Mexico, were in fact informants working for those organizations and included some of the leaders of the cartels.”

The federal government continues to deny discovery for the defense claiming that they are "classified materials" and argued that they "do not support the defendant's claim that he was promised immunity or public authority for his actions."

Well that is just like the federal government, isn't it? You can't have the documentation because we think it should be classified and besides it doesn't make your case. Oh really? Well maybe it doesn't make the case, but I can tell you this: The federal government has a long history of trust issues and the administration that claimed it would be the most transparent has been anything but that.

    What I don't understand is why 1) Holder hasn't been indicted for this, and 2) since he claimed 'executive privilege (meaning HE had to have been involved, otherwise that claim would have not bearing on the Justice Dept) why hasn't Obama been impeached for this criminal activity? Again, his claim of 'executive privilege' is EXCLUSIVE to Oval Office activities; by invoking it on Holder's behalf, he is stating the Office of the Presidency was involved. Again, executive privilege WOULD NOT apply to Holder, who is NOT IN THE White House.

  • armlaw

    Where does the constitution provide for impeachment of a usurper? I can not find it, however congress can indict him for FRAUD ! Go after Congress or throw them all out.

  • beijingyank

    Surprise! Surprise! Holder and Bush are drug dealers!

  • justthetruth

    Seems like Bush admin started and ran this operation for the first 4 years at least. Why aren't they commenting on this operation?

  • Kathleen Pedersen

    This administration had their training in Chicago (nuff said). They all refuse to show any records which in itself makes it very transparent (to use OB's favorite word) or they would open them up to Congress, as requested. We know and they know they are hiding the truth because the truth will get them kicked out of the WH. Let's help them in their exit by our vote in Nov. and force the hands of these traitors (which is what they really are).

    You all can drop the racist B.S. too!

    This article is full of enuendo and B.S.!

    They should be removed from office and extradited to Mexico. Perhaps they have a wall.

  • Flannempickle

    People, you don't get it.
    It doesn't much matter if he wins or loses. Hell there may not even be an election. He will use (or create) a National crisis and enact the executive orders listed below that he put in place just recently. It's just a question of will he do it before or after Nov 6. He will use black people to help kill off white people, then use his Muslim brothers to kill of the surviving black and white infidels. 10% loss of our population (30 million) is completely acceptable to ObamaNazi. Even 50% since he doesn't like blacks OR whites. And for years FEMA has been retro-fitting all these closed military bases as concentration camps to hold millions more Americans. All you can do is arm to the teeth, sit tight, and when they come for you take out as many as possible before they get you.
    Give me liberty or give me death.
    Here's the list:

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 to seize and control the communication media.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 to take over all food resources and farms.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 to take over all health, education and welfare functions.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 to operate a national registration of all persons via the Postmaster General.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations through the Housing and Finance Authority.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 to consolidate 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen-year period assigning emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 to authorize putting all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 authorizes the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

    EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also stipulates that Congress cannot review the action for six months.

    Through these heinous executive orders, Barack Hussein Obama has made sure that his radical political agenda has trumped the Constitution of this country. According to the Washington Times, the springtime NDRP Executive Order gives Barack Obama no less than the ability to impose martial law as he sees fit!

    The article says, "He now possesses the potential powers of a dictator. The order is a direct assault on individual liberties, private property rights and the rule of law. It is blatantly unconstitutional. The executive branch is arrogating responsibilities precluded by the Constitution without even asking the permission of Congress. The order gives Mr. Obama a blank check to erect a centralized authoritarian state."

    Informed by a DHS whistleblower, the Canada Free Press reports "the DHS is actively preparing for massive social unrest inside the United States. He then corrected himself, stating that 'a civil war' is the more appropriate term. 'Certain elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for it, they are actually facilitating it.'"

    The "whistleblower" even suggested this cataclysmic event would take the form of a staged assassination attempt against Barack Obama -- one that was "carefully choreographed" by Obama's own operatives placing the blame on "white supremacists" stoking the flames of racial violence a la the 1992 Los Angeles Riots when martial law was declared!

    So, that's why we're loosing the "war" on drugs. We've never been fighting it. Just managing all the misery drugs cause, Nice.

    If there was any evidence that implicated the Bush administration in allowing guns to walk into Mexico, Obama and Holder would've already provided it to the media and to Issa, Cummings and every other member of the investigating committee. 2004 - 2009 would mean that only Bush had allowed the guns to walk, not Obama.

    If it stopped in late 2009, why did Obama stop it? We know he didn't stop it because he and holder claimed they'd never heard of it until after Brian Terry's death.

    This is more BS being put out for the purpose of deflecting any responsibility from the Obama regime. And with a butt kissing media, who will enthusiastically go along with the script, they just might pull it off.

    Back about 1905, New York City passed the Sullivan Law, which was named after the author, Tim Sullivan. Mr. Sullivan was elected by the same message of threat that gangsters used to conduct their organized crimes. Mr. Sullivan was a leader of the 5 Points Irish gang.
    The Sullivan law granted power to elected or appointed officials to deny or issue a permit to have or carry a handgun.
    Mr. Sullivan was able to deny pistol permits to rival gangs and issue permits to his gang and associates.
    NYC gun laws [and several other big cities] follow the same pattern to this day. About 40 States have passed "Shall Issue Concealed Carry Licenses" to any citizen or legal resident unless they are a prohibited person due to actual crimes committed and convicted. In those States where the general public, millions of people nationwide now have a license to carry a firearm and crime is lower in those areas.
    Such crime that does happen tends to happen in "Gun Free islands" created by government or private companies.
    How does this apply to Fast and Furious? It fits the pattern that is over 100 years old, The government disarms the people making them easily crime victims and it makes the people more dependent on government for their immediate security.
    And as a two-ffer, every crime is used to further restrict lawfully carried and used arms to further subject The People to government oppression and criminal violence. Government loves gun control because it sounds good to the uninformed and it creates the "we're doing all we can" when the People demand public safety.
    Fast and Furious was certainly planned as a tool to get the uninformed public, the public which was educated in government public schools and gets all their news from NYTimes, LA Times, NBC, CBS, ABC.
