The United States is suing one of its united states for enforcing laws that United States law requires be enforced. Got it? Yesterday, author Katie Pavlich began a story in Townhall with this:
Earlier today, I had the privilege of sitting down with National Sheriff of the Year Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu to discuss his reaction to Operation Fast and Furious and his ongoing fight against ruthless drug cartels. After our conversation, it became clear the Obama Administration is fighting him with lawsuits and by arming the very cartels he and his deputies are trying to combat in the Arizona desert.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu is fighting what he describes as the most ruthless criminals in North America, on American soil in Southern Arizona. In his county, cartels use look-out posts, or “spotters,” to detect and move around law enforcement, and shootouts with cartels members are a normal occurrence.
Katie’s headline asks “but Whose Side is Obama On?” We have the answer and it’s not pleasant. Play the video.
Pavlich also points out that the U.S. government paid — correction — you and I paid for many of the guns in the hands of the drug cartel. Read about it here.
