Barack Obama’s hand-picked Attorney General Loretta Lynch barnstormed the Sunday morning political talk shows to make the case for the coming gun confiscation. But the stunning omission of something else shows that the nation’s top cop is just another political hack for the Democratic party.
It’s been one heck of a good week for the gun grabbers who have managed to seize the narrative from Muslim mass-murderer Omar Mateen’s rampage in order to push a meme that will be helpful to Hillary Clinton this November. The wanton slaughter of 49 people in Orlando’s Pulse gay nightclub by an ISIS inspired fiend has seen the radical Islam connections minimized by Dems and the media. Now instead of the debate that America needs to have on the treat of primitive religious fanaticism it’s all about how best to get the camel’s nose under the tent for what will inevitably be a national gun confiscation drive.
Lynch hit for the Sunday McNews cycle with appearances on CNN’s State of the Union, NBC’s Meet the Press, ABC’s This Week, CBS’s Face the Nation and even Fox News Sunday. The crux of the public relations blitz seems to be that in addition to pushing for new gun laws that the information on the killings will be massaged to emphasize the actions of Mateen as more of a hate crime than a terrorist act. The suppression of the radical Islamic angle – the killer pledged allegiance to ISIS – are being downplayed because that would be very disadvantageous to the electoral hopes of Democrats.
Reuters reports that “U.S. to release partial transcripts of Florida club gunman’s calls”:
U.S. officials will release partial transcripts of three phone conversations that the gunman who killed 49 people in a Florida gay club had with law enforcement during the massacre, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Sunday.
The now-deceased gunman, Omar Mateen, paused during his three-hour siege at the club in Orlando last Sunday to call emergency 911 dispatchers and post internet messages professing support for Islamist militant groups, authorities have said.
The rampage, the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, has triggered a week of national mourning and soul-searching over the easy accessibility of firearms and the treatment of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
Speaking on CNN’s “State of the Union” program, Lynch said the partial transcripts of Mateen’s calls from the Pulse club would be released on Monday and include the “substance of his conversations.”
She later told ABC’s “This Week” that the transcripts would not include Mateen’s pledge of allegiance to Islamic State, the militant group that has urged its followers to attack targets in Europe and the United States.
That Lynch would turn out to be just another political hack was obvious from the beginning and while the meme was that she would be the first African-American female to be placed in such an influential position there were numerous warning signs that Lynch would be the latest fox charged with guarding the hen house. Like Eric Holder who never lifted a finger to prosecute the heads of the Wall Street banks that blew a hole in the economy and their mortgage con jobs, Lynch was installed to protect the interests of the high rollers. Her pedigree as a former board member at Timothy Geithner’s New York Fed should have been an immediate deal killer as well as her role in the HSBC drug money laundering bank scandal.
Lynch also will ensure that Hillary Clinton won’t face the music for the criminal issues surrounding her private server and emails and that is the work of a political stooge and not one sworn to uphold the law.
