Hypocrisy is politics as usual at the White House

The Daily Jot

On May 3rd, the occupant of the the Oval Office addressed “The People of Mexico” with a blatantly hypocritical speech. Ignoring that it was his administration and his attorney general who trafficked guns to Mexican drug dealers in “Operation Fast and Furious,” he lectured Mexicans about illegal guns and how his administration was going to put gun traffickers behind bars. He also told the Mexican people that he would do everything in his power to undermine the Constitutional guarantees to the right to bear arms. On one hand he is saying that guns from America cause crime in Mexico and that he wants to shut down gun ownership in America, on the other, his administration sold guns to Mexican drug dealers.

He said, “And we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States. I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms, and as President I swore an oath to uphold that right and I always will. But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to pass common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people. That can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do. So we’ll keep increasing the pressure on gun traffickers who bring illegal guns into Mexico. We’ll keep putting these criminals where they belong — behind bars.”

CBS News reported February 23, 2011 the murder of border agent Brian Terry by a Mexican drug thug using an assault rifle that was part of thousands of guns delivered into the hands of Mexican drug cartel criminals by the Justice Department’s Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. In September 2011, The Daily Jot reported a search of the DOJ website showed dozens of releases and statements on the subject, many by Attorney General Eric Holder. “Holder’s Justice Department authorized the sales to track the weapons when crimes were committed. Americans have been killed because of it. Holder denies knowing of it. The President denies knowing of it. But there are references throughout the Justice Department website touting it.”

This is just one example of hypocrisy being politics as usual at the White House. Another is the financial and political support of the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda–America’s sworn enemies–in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Yemen and now Syria. These are the very same organizations that are killing our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. They killed our Ambassador in Benghazi while the Secretaries of State and Defense ignored pleas for help and the “president” was no where to be found.

These are the consequences of putting a hireling over the sheep. The hireling is really not part of the shepherd or the sheep. He doesn’t understand nor love the culture. He loves his own ways and puts his own self interest over that of the sheep.  As Jesus said in John 10:12, “But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep, and flees: and the wolf catches them, and scatters the sheep.” There is only one good shepherd–Jesus the Messiah–and when a nation turns away from him and appoints hireling leaders over it, the consequences become self evident. We the People, Christians who know truth, need to re-engage on behalf of the truth.

Have A Blessed And Powerful Day,
