RUSH: You know that Fast and Furious gunrunning thing? Justice.gov website located on page 96 a report on this program, 2009, February, the Recovery Act signed into law allocated $10 million to ATF for Project Gunrunner. Stimulus money paid for this, is what has been discovered. Stimulus money paid for Fast and Furious. Ten million was allocated in the stimulus bill to buy machine guns and revolvers and let Mexican drug lords take them across the border back to Mexico and use them. Stimulus money. That’s shovel-ready job stuff. You remember that. Right here it is, 2009, February, Recovery Act signed into law, allocated $10 million to ATF for Project Gunrunner. In 2009, June, Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2009 allocated an additional $67 million to the ATF for Project Gunrunner, which means we can trace the money back to Obama, or if you want you could trace it back to Bite Me, who was put directly in charge.
But you can trace the money back to the Department of Justice. They administered the program. Stimulus money. This is important because now there is a way to follow the money. This is stunning. Fast and Furious funded by the Porkulus bill. In 2010, August, Emergency Border Security Supplemental Appropriations Bill of 2010 allocated $37.5 million dollars to the ATF for Project Gunrunner. Just a little over a year ago, another $37.5 million. Just more money from Obama’s stash. So let’s add it up, ten million in February 2009, six million in June of 2009, so that’s a total of $16 million in 2009, then in 2010, $37.5 million. So $53.5 million dollars spent to buy machine guns and revolvers, $53.5 million dollars, all taxpayer dollars. Isn’t that fascinating?
RUSH: I want to go back to this Fast and Furious. Remember, now, stimulus money — with everything else going on you kind of gloss over this and we shouldn’t — stimulus money was buying weapons for Mexican drug cartels, by design, that was its purpose.
