This was found by someone at Free Republic, documented at Pajamas Media. Project Gunrunner was funded 10 million taxpayer dollars in the Stimulus that Obama signed himself:

For an additional amount for ‘State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance’, $40,000,000, for competitive grants to provide assistance and equipment to local law enforcement along the Southern border and in High-Intensity Drug Trafficking Areas to combat criminal narcotics activity stemming from the Southern border, of which $10,000,000 shall be transferred to ‘Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, Salaries and Expenses’ for the ATF Project Gunrunner.

Here’s a link to the actual text at Open Congress. Click it and see for yourself. Is this what Obama meant by shovel-ready jobs? Project Gunrunner is the reason Brian Terry is dead as we armed drug-runners in Mexico. Now the same arms are turning back up here and there’s no telling how many deaths will be directly connected to it.

In fact here’s a piece by ABC 15 documenting that the guns are showing up in Phoenix:

    it would be nice if the GOP congress people would you know read the bills and such so they could you know bring this stuff to light BEFORE the vote and such.

    such a little thing READ the Bill but it would solve so many of our problems.

      Yeah but even when the GOP does warn us, like with Obamacare, they are ridiculed….we need to vote more tea partiers into office and kick the progressives out

      You’ve got a 800 billion dollar bill, you’re going to easily overlook the 10 million dollar program in it. Especially when it’s something you’ve never heard of and have no idea what it’s going to do. The Rs were busy fighting the stimulus as a whole and it would have been nearly impossibly to mount a case against Gunrunner at that time when it was costing a whole 10 million out of the 800 billion and no one would have had any clue as to what it was or would eventually be. No one would have listened even if they did catch it.

      They weren’t given a chance to read it. The Pelosi congress only released the bill at midnight (or something like that) the next day was the vote.

    This is but another nail in the coffin of the obbamma administration. The closer we get to the election, I believe that others in different agencies will be opening up to disclose other improprieties in order to save their own Arse’s.

    When the anointed one was elected, many in good faith followed blindly on the
    “hope and change express” and now they see that they were bamboozled, and are now starting to feel the stress of being involved in the destruction of our great country.
    In time, we the people will have an accounting for all the underhanded policies that have been enacted, and WE DAM SURE BETTER HOLD SOMEONE ACCOUNTABLE!

    So, if the people are to believe that Congress wrote the bill, and the POTUS read it, then how could either claim they did not know about it? This is complete incompetence and a tacit admission that they are not only NOT working in the peoples’ best interest, but, at worst, are deferring their job to some outside organization and could care less about details of the legislation they dump on Americans and sign into law.

    Making laws that everyone else has to live by, and then not knowing what’s in the bill should be an impeachable offense.

    not only was it in the stimulus but it was also in the RECOVERY ACT
    and a couple of emergency border appropriations bills.
    all told total cost that i can figure from all of this…….. about 87-88Million

  • KenInMontana

    I’d wager that no one at the time thought to ask, “Just what,exactly, is this Gunrunner thing?”

    • Josh

      Well, we had to pass the bill to find out what was in it.

      Every single idiot who voted for the stimulus should be thrown out of office for not doing their job. The only “real” responsibility that they have, the reason they are elected, is so they have the time to read the legal documents and represent us.

    For all the leftists that spent all the live-long day accusing George Bush and AG Ashcroft of criminality, where are they now? We have CLEAR, CONFESSED criminality in the DOJ, and I hear not one peep from the left. Bush had no involvement in the prison scandal in Iraq, yet he’s guilty. We now have evidence that Obama signed paperwork that illegally put some of the most dangerous weapons in the world in the hands of terrorists, and yet this, in the eyes of the leftist, pales in comparison to the Iran-Contra affair of decades ago. While George Bush, who gave billions to Africa to stop AIDS and did more than any other modern president in recent HISTORY (yes, he’s “historic”, before the Dalai Obama was) to stop slavery (http://www.radicalislam.org/content/genocide-sudan-%E2%80%93-again?utm_source=MadMimi&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Slavery+in+Sudan&utm_campaign=RI+Newsletter+45&utm_term=Genocide+in+Sudan+-+Again+) could do no right, in the [wild] eyes of the liberal, the Dalai Obama, in spite of signing away close to a trillion of American taxpayer dollars, with millions upon millions going to, apparently, finance foreign criminal cartels, the Dalai Obama can do no wrong. The Dalai Obama, the Champion of the Underdog, who got down on his knees during his 57 state campaign to sweat blood for poor, depressed Port au Prunce, Haiti (you know: the nation that he forgot about, just 2 – 3 weeks after it made the news) is going to come out of this, Scott Free, and somehow, I can see this being something else to hang around Bush’s neck.

    If it can be proven that ObamaCo. was using taxpayer dollars to finance foreign criminal enterprise, at the expense of American lives and safety, if this doesn’t result in impeachment, I don’t know what will. Probably nothing.

      You know the 57 states are Islamic states … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpGH02DtIws freudian slip??

        I think he’s sarcastically referring to Obama’s own Islamic slip during an interview, where he referenced “57 states”, and of course got a free pass.

    I have been posting this for months it is on the DOJ web page for crying out loud … I guess Holder had no idea it was there and is Quoted on the page “This funding is vital to keeping our communities strong,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “As governors, mayors, and local law enforcement professionals struggle with the current economic crisis, we can’t afford to decrease our commitment to fighting crime and keeping our communities safe. These grants will help ensure states and localities can make the concerted efforts necessary to protect our most vulnerable communities and populations.” http://www.justice.gov/recovery/rec-prog.html

    See what happens when Obama say “put a stimulus Bill on my desk and I will sign it”……..That good old MSM including FOX has been more interested with Casey Anthony and Weiner than being Jounalists. Now Congress is talking with Roger Clemens…..Sad so Sad our US Congress!

    Create a faux ‘crisis’…then prey upon it.

    They obviously planned to use this to forward their agenda of killing the 2nd Amendment.
    We should not think that this will prevent the Predator-in-Chief and his merry band of accomplices from doing something else equally as diabolical, to force their agenda on us.

    I can see it got out of hand but I really don’t see this as that bad. They’re going to get guns anyway. You get one off the street and there’s another one there tomorrow. Might as well track them. Now I do think people acted on their own. But this has been going on since 2005. The guy want’s to come out now I wonder why? We can call a spade a spade. There is conspiracy on both sides of this thing. Close it down and find a new solution.
