Gunwalker and Cloward and Piven.

Debby's Web Finds
Gunwalker and Cloward and Piven.

Was the ultimate goal of the Justice Department’s “Gunwalker” program to flood Mexican illegals into the United States?  As Mexicans started self-deporting when the economy went in the tank, did the Democratic Party worry about their “future” constituency, but even more than that, did they wish for more and more users of America’s welfare programs in order to crash the system? That’s an interesting theory being suggested by someone who has reported on this scandal for several months. He believes that Cloward and Piven’s strategy of flooding people into government programs in order to bring the system down might have been the ultimate goal of Obama’s Gunwalker – Fast and Furious program, separate from, but just as devious as the idea of bringing gun control to the U.S. on a massive scale. This is from Bob Owens of Pajamas Media. He blogs at Confederate Yankee and at Bob’s Gun Counter.

As anyone with any experience in government will attest, there is massive institutional inertia against both change and risk. It is insurmountable without significant stakeholder support. In government, this means directors, secretaries, and elected officeholders.

An operation like Fast and Furious would have been jettisoned in the conceptual stages as inherently dangerous and assured of failure, as various veteran law enforcement officers have attested (including here at PJMedia in an article by LAPD veteran “Jack Dunphy”):

…Someone, displaying a bit of that outside-the-box thinking, came up with the idea of allowing thousands of weapons to be bought on this side of the border with the idea that they could be tracked as they made their way through the network of cartel members and facilitators and into the hands of Mexican outlaws.

This was a pipe dream. To me, it is inconceivable that this operation ever made it out of the first meeting where it was discussed. It goes to show how detached police executives can be from the reality of police work as it is actually practiced. There is simply no effective way to track a gun once it leaves the store where it was purchased.

We’ve long suspected that … — propaganda for tighter gun laws — was the ultimate goal of Gunwalker, but the plot makes significantly more sense if Gunwalker did have multiple goals, of which gun control was just one.

A logical speculation…is that the short-term goal of Gunwalker was to increase violence in Mexico. This would drive more Mexican citizens northward as illegal aliens, seeking respite from the violence in their home country. Their plight would provide the administration a way to pitch the DREAM Act as an act of kindness to political refugees and another step towards amnesty.

This would be a strategy straight from the Cloward-Piven playbook.  Snip –

Gunwalker purposefully increases social unrest (increased gun violence/destabilizing Mexico), with the possible result of overloading the U.S. public welfare system (more illegal aliens fleeing the violence in Mexico and Central America). Gunwalker’s perpetrators could then use that influx to create an insurmountable constituency of poor seeking handouts from the Democratic Party. The hope of the strategy is to force a system-wide collapse of the current system, and then to rebuild the government in a variant of the strongest socialist model they think the public will accept.

It sounds too devious. It appears to fit.

Take Operation Fast and Furious in Arizona, the two suspected operations in Texas, Operation Castaway in Tampa, and the newer allegations of “Gangwalker” in the Midwest — they make sense only in the larger context of a Cloward-Piven framework.

These operations could not possibly succeed at interdicting straw purchasers, smugglers, and cartel bosses. No one actually involved in law enforcement could possibly believe that such idiotic operations could work. But these operations are logical when viewed through the context of their implementation as tactical applications designed to support a Cloward-Piven strategy.

Owens mentions other operations that seem to be related to Fast and Furious out of Arizona: Operation Castaway out of Tampa, and a couple of unnamed operations out of Texas. Wow. Oh, and the State Department was involved as well.

Operation Castaway provided weapons to destabilize Central American countries and to help keep the cartel drug supply lines from Central and South America open. The unnamed gunwalking operations in Texas provided a steady flow of U.S. firearms to southern and central Mexico. Operation Fast and Furious provided the Sinaloa cartel more than 2,020 weapons in northern Mexico along the U.S. border. And to make sure the cartel wars didn’t get too one-sided, the State Department made sure the bloodthirsty Zetas were armed with American military equipment by selling them military hardware through a transparent front company.  Snip –

Operation Fast and Furious doesn’t make sense as a anti-cartel operation, but it makes perfect tactical sense as a way of implementing Cloward-Piven, something that President Obama, Attorney General Holder, Secretary Napolitano, and Secretary Clinton have long embraced as followers of those radicals and Saul Alinsky.  Gunwalker is the start of a coup d’état against the republic by the very souls entrusted to guard it.

Of course, this is entirely speculation at this point. It’s just damn hard to think of a more logical reason for Gunwalker to exist.

Whatever the reasons involved in all of these gunrunning scandals, laws have been broken, and there’s still a lot left to come out. It matters not whether the intention was a Cloward-Piven strategy or an attempt to stifle our Second Amendment rights, these are anti-American, anti-national security, and anti-economic stability all rolled up into some really nasty, dangerous and deadly results. This is without even talking about the gangsters this administration have made out of our Justice Department. Lots of heads should be rolling, but not much is peeping in the mainstream press about any of this. That too is frightening. Please read it all here:

When you factor this scandal in with the Solyndra scandal and the LightSquared scandal, it becomes obvious that  Chicago-type corruption is pervasive in the Justice Department, the Energy Department and the White House. We can’t withstand another four years of this type of destructive government. We’ll be lucky to withstand it for the next year or so. You can read more about Solyndra here:
