Obama’s unconstitutional/corrupt anti-gun crusade has now reached a whole new level: “Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) accused Obama of trying to make support for his position look stronger than it really is by flooding Twitter with messages from people who don’t exist… “Obama’s anti-gun campaign is a fraud,” Stockman said. “Obama’s supporters are panicking and willing to do anything to create the appearance of popular support, even if it means trying to defraud Congress”… Stockman said that in response to Obama’s call for people to tweet their congressman in support of gun control legislation, he received just 16 tweets. But he said all of these messages were identical, and that a closer look at them revealed that only six were from real people. “The other 10 are fake, computer-generated spambots,” his office said in a press release. As evidence, he said these 10 tweets use default graphics and names, and have not engaged in any interaction with other people. Two of the tweets were sent at nearly the same time, and both follow just one person: Brad Schenck, Obama’s former digital strategist.”
Update: Obama also sent Michelle Obama to ABC News to falsely claim that a 15-year-old girl who was killed in Chicago after performing during the inauguration was shot with an ‘automatic weapon’– in fact, Chicago police reported that it was a handgun. Obama has been pushing for new restrictions on semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, and wants America to believe that his policy will eliminate gun violence– but the truth is that gun control is a complicated issue, and Obama’s anti-gun crusade is hypocritical and unconstitutional.
It’s pretty scary to find out that the head of Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is disconnected from reality. In 2009, Janet Napolitano infamously claimed that “the system worked” after an underwear bomber successfully smuggled explosive liquid onto a jet.
Now, Janet Napolitano has been quoted: “I believe the border is secure. I believe the border’s a safe border.” Every American knows this isn’t true– we have approximately 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., a U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot dead (and another was wounded) recently, a Texas farmer reported that “a federal law enforcement agent told him to buy a bulletproof vest to use while working in his fields,” etc.
