Are you surprised that Vogue's Anna Wintour is squeezing fashionistas to go all out for Obama? It makes sense, since the icy-eyed editrix knows style, and Obama certainly has a presidential style that's all his own. After all, Obama is the only commander-in-chief to ever manipulate Americans into getting killed so that he can kill the Constitution.
We first saw Obama's murderous stylings in Operation Fast and Furious, a brazenly criminal scheme in which he cuddled up to Mexican drug gangs, giving them thousands of state-of-the-art firearms. Obama's narco-killer partners then obligingly used their new presents to murder U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata, as well as hundreds of Mexican men, women and children.
The grieving parents of the four Americans just slaughtered in Libya might want to contact the parents of slain ICE Agent Jaime Zapata and get the name of their lawyer. Mary and Amador Zapata have filed a $25 million wrongful death suit against the U.S. government, claiming that Jaime Zapata informed his supervisors he had misgivings about the safety of his Mexican trip, but was ordered to go anyway. "All of these legitimate concerns were put aside... and agents Avila and Zapata were required to follow orders," the lawyers wrote. Sources say Zapata was investigating Fast and Furious at the time of his murder.
Sound familiar? It should, because Obama has now refined his Fast and Furious killing techniques into the wildly successful butchery of Benghazi. Let's review what we know. First, Obama denied repeated requests for more security from the increasingly desperate Libyan ambassador, Christopher Stevens. Second, he blithely skipped 60% of his intelligence briefings, including every single one in the critical week leading up to 9/11. (Just to be consistent, he also skipped his briefing on 9/12, the day after the murders of Ambassador Stevens and three other brave Americans.)
And, in a moment that will surely go down in American history, on 9/11/12, when terrorists launched their fatal attack on our Benghazi consulate, Obama denied any military support to the surrounded Americans, ensuring that they would die. As Tyrone Woods, Glenn Doherty, Sean Smith, and Ambassador Stevens engaged in a brutal seven-hour battle to the death, Obama abandoned them to waft off to a contented night's sleep in his feather-soft presidential bed.
The next day, Obama awoke to the rousing news that his ambassador had been raped, killed, and dragged through the Libyan streets by a triumphant mob. With his Mission Accomplished, Obama celebrated by jetting off to Las Vegas, later yukking it up with David Letterman and partying with Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
"They refused to pull the trigger," said Charles Woods, father of the murdered ex-Navy SEAL, Tyrone. "Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son."
The tragedy of brave heroes like Tyrone Woods, Glenn Doherty, Brian Terry, and Jaime Zapata is that they were doomed to serve under Barack Hussein Obama. And Obama's signature style is to foment bloody anti-American chaos abroad that justifies ditching the Constitution at home.
It's a constant irritant for aspiring tyrants like Obama that we Americans retain a certain fondness for the Constitution. The solution is to bully us out of it with vivid theatrics that lead to hysterical moral hectoring. So Fast and Furious became the prop to shame Americans into abandoning our Second Amendment right to bear arms. Always glad to help, Obama's media operatives repeated his cynically contrived claim that "90 percent of the guns recovered in Mexico come from the United States, many from gun shops that lay in our shared border. So we have responsibilities as well."
