California State Senator and gun-control advocate, Leland Yee, has been indicted on charges related to gun trafficking. FBI Special Agent, Emmanuel Pascua, filed a 137 page sworn affidavit (view full version here) outlining his charges, which included that Yee’s gun trafficking involved Muslim rebels in the Philippines, or more specifically, Mindanao.
According to the affidavit, Keith Jackson (political consultant and Yee’s alleged partner in crime) contacted the undercover FBI agent on March 4, 2014 to set up a meeting and discuss Yee’s request to find a new weapons supplier. At the meeting the next day, the FBI agent identified Dr. LIM as the point of contact in the weapons deal between the Yee and the Philippines.
During the meeting between Yee and the undercover agent, Senator Yee explained how Dr. LIM was originally from the Mindanao region and that Muslim rebels had no issue with kidnapping, murdering, or holding individuals for ransom in exchange for money in order to successfully overthrow their government.
The undercover agent and Yee then went on to discuss weapons such as shoulder-fire missles and/or rocks and semi-automatics. Yee was told he would be given $2 million in cash to pay for high-powered artillery and the shipment of weapons to North Africa (most likely to be sold to Muslim rebels for the same reason).
Why would someone do this? The surface answer is simple– Yee is running for CA Secretary of State. Because of this, he willingly engaged in soliciting illegal campaign donations in exchange for trafficking firearms from Russia to the US to sell to Muslim rebels in the Philippines. But what about what’s underneath? So many people can easily forget about the whole thing in a couple of weeks because they don’t see that there is an underlying problem here.
Look at page 101 of the affidavit where Yee claimed that the Philippine government was secretly funding Muslim groups in order to create a distraction from government corruption. Do these points not add up to something strangely similar to the gun-running operation that put weapons staight into the hands of Mexican drug cartels? Wake up people. You have a Democratic State Senator who is willing to aid an Islamist terrorist group all for the sake of funding his own campaign. He was caught and his story is out in the open, but are you honestly not willing to admit there are most likely more of the same scumbags out there that our state/country elected?! Do you not think there was another motive behind this? This gun-control advocate lied through his teeth. He doesn’t oppose guns, he opposes guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens!
Lies, hypocrisy, deceipt. All reasons why we need to start asking why senators, congressmen, law makers, and our president all want to disarm America.
Scary thing is, it is possible that like Yee, we have more “leaders” trying to get you to buy into the lies about gun violence. Why? So that you’ll fight their battle to disarm America. Why? Because like the Muslim rebels in the Philippines, we have people in power who want to overthrow a large body. It looks to me that in America’s case it’s not the government these leaders are looking to destroy, it’s the people.
