<span style='font-size: 23pt'>Dennis Burke exposed</span>

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>Liberal loyalist behind anti-gun initiative</span>

In an in-depth article titled Obama Contributor, Who Helped Enact Assault-Weapons Ban, Ran ‘Fast and Furious,’ Cybercast News Service reports on what the MSM refuses to meaningfully cover.

Reporter Fred Lucas has done a masterful job of linking dutiful Napolitano leftwing functionary Dennis K. Burke who once padded his career path by ingratiating himself to Democrats from Janet Napolitano to Barack Obama.

After using his well honed connections to secure an Obama appointment as U.S. Attorney for Arizona, Burke was forced to resign in August 2011 amid fallout of his knowledge of the ill-conceived and reckless operation that left Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry dead in a gun battle near the Arizona/Mexico border. Burke’s resignation was announced by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

Patrick Cunningham, the chief of the Criminal Division of the Arizona U.S. Attorney’s Office, invoked his Fifth Amendment protections, refusing to testify before Congress regarding the botched federal gun scandal which supplied U.S. weapons to violent Mexican drug cartels.

Burke, a never-married government bureaucrat has had a penchant for throwing cash in the direction of every liberal candidate who comes down the pike. According to Federal Election Commission records (see Dennis K. Burke, Phoenix), while working as Gov. Napolitano’s chief of staff, he contributed $2,000 to then-Sen. Obama’s presidential primary campaign. Since 1997, Burke has contributed a total of $16,350 to various Democrat candidates. The donations paid off — until the floor fell out from beneath his twinkle toes.

Dennis Burke ran the assault weapons ban in 1994. Former AZ Sen. Dennis DeConcini, a liberal Democrat, credited Burke and Rahm Emmanuel with developing and getting the 1994 ban passed

A loyal Napolitano sycophant Burke worked as her Senior Advisor at the Department of Homeland Security and as her Chief of Staff when she was Governor. Burke was with Napolitano when she was Arizona Attorney General, serving as her Chief Deputy Attorney General. When all hell broke for him, Napolitano let her devoted toady’s career fall into the swamp.

CCN reports that from 1989 to 1994, Dennis Burke was a counsel for the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee, working in that capacity for several years on an assault weapons ban, which was finally enacted on Sept. 13, 1994 as the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. That anti-gun initiative expired ten years later on Sept. 13, 2004. The Democrats have been trying to get it back ever since.

There is a connective thread that binds the Fast and Furious gun running scandal — gun control. The Obama White House maintains it’s absurd to think Fast and Furious is about gun control. Connect the dots….Dennis Burke, Obama’s lead U.S. Attorney in Arizona — oversaw the program.</span>

This was quite obviously the goal of the regime.

You didn't even read it, did you?

If you had, you would have know that the main issue was border control and not gun control.

Dennis Burke hasn’t officially taken his post as Arizona’s next U.S. attorney, but he’s already familiar with an area that may be his top priority as a federal prosecutor – the border.

Just days after being nominated by President Barack Obama as U.S. attorney for Arizona, Burke was on the border at Nogales, part of three days of meetings with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s border czar. Obama and U.S. Attorney Eric Holder have made drug trafficking and human smuggling a top priority, and <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Burke said he plans to put those issues at the top of his agenda as well.

Of course, Burke was no stranger to border issues,</span> which came up frequently in his time as co-chief of staff to former Arizona governor and current Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Since Napolitano moved to DHS, Burke has served as a senior adviser, dealing primarily with the border issues he now expects to pursue as U.S. attorney.

“I’ve spent several years now working on law enforcement and border issues in Arizona. I’ve built strong relationships with federal, state and local law enforcement officials, and since during the transition from the Bush Administration to the Obama Administration, I’ve been working on homeland security and border enforcement issues,” Burke said. </div></div>

Why don't you address the point?

What's that?

You don't know what your opinion is until the regime tells you?

Imagine that.

How does adding 2,000 guns to an annual migration of over 700,000 US guns that go to Mexico every year make any difference whatsoever?

There are likely MILLIONS of US guns in use in Mexico. In what way do you allege another .35% in a year were supposed to make some case that could not already be made?

Have you ever realized that things you thought were true are entirely false? (I have, and it is an important humbling experience, btw.)

Actually most of the guns in Mexico dont come from the US.
Its propaganda.

07-03-2012, 05:27 PM
That's true.

They mainly come from bribed Mexican army sources, and the Latin American trafficking in heavier military grade weapons that actually are illegal here.

However, they still get about 2,000 a day from the US.
