These days it is increasingly difficult to tell the difference between what is real and what is bullshit when it comes from the Obama administration and the larger government – neither of which have any credibility. Breaking news has transformed the White House fence jumper into a veritable killing machine. Perhaps it was the laughable attempt to push that three inch bladed pocket knife that Omar Gonzalez had on him when he crashed Barry’s pad on Friday as a real threat but now we are being told that he had an arsenal in his car.
The Washington Post is reporting in a story entitled “White House fence jumper had ammunition, machete in car, prosecutors said” that:
Federal prosecutors alleged Monday in federal court that a man who jumped a fence and ran into the White House’s unlocked front door Friday night posed a threat to President Obama and was keeping 800 rounds of ammunition, two hatchets and a machete in his car, parked blocks away.
Omar Jose Gonzalez, 42, formerly of Copperas Cove, Tex., appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge John M. Facciola of the District on one charge of unlawfully entering a restricted building or grounds while carrying a deadly or dangerous weapon.
After a 20-minute hearing, Facciola ordered Gonzalez held until Oct. 1, pending revocation of bond by authorities in an unrelated July 19 incident in Wythe County, Va., in which he was arrested while allegedly carrying a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and a map of the Washington area with the White House and Masonic Temple in Alexandria, Va., circled.
Earlier, on Aug. 25, Assistant U.S. Attorney David Mudd said, U.S. Secret Service officers saw Gonzalez carrying a hatchet in the back waistband of his pants along the south fence of the White House and questioned him. Gonzalez agreed to let them search his vehicle, parked nearby on New York Avenue NW, but at that time found only camping gear and two dogs, and released him.
Gonzalez’s “preoccupation with the White House and accumulation of a large amount of ammunition in apparently a short period of time represented a danger to the president,” Mudd said.
Now whether it is the truth or a lie if the weapons cache was actually inside the vehicle when Gonzalez rolled up to the White House or was planted is anyone’s guess. There also is to this point no report of actual guns in the vehicle which is bizarre given the implied threat. The feds are masters of entrapment and trumping up cases to justify their own existence and planting “evidence” would not be outside the realm of possibility. The charge that he was actually a “threat to the president” is ridiculous since Obama was long gone by the time of the incident. Even the somnolent Secret Service would have noticed a heavily armed minority charging across the lawn – unless they were busy with prostitutes – and shot his ass down. You also have to love the standard media trick of using his full middle name ala Lee Harvey Oswald to mix into a sinister narrative of an intent of attempted assassination. It is a gift to all of those who want to further crack down on civil liberties and sow fear in an election cycle. The only way that it would have worked out better for Obama is if the guy were a white supremacist.
This is what happens when you live under a government that does not even bother with even pretending to tell the truth about anything. Is it any wonder that one would be a skeptic? Yes, the atmosphere is indeed collapsing but it is only following the truth in doing so. As the late muckraker I.F. Stone so perfectly nailed it – “all governments are run by liars and nothing that they say should be believed”.
