I wonder if this Jennifer Joyce, being a Public official, has ever contributed to Obama’s campaign. If this story is accurate, this is positively outrageous. This needs investigating by the Missouri Attorney General.
Very, very scary............
I think we are in the living in the twilight era of the First Amendment.
Campaign finance reform was final straw, I do not hold out much hope.
“This needs investigating by the Missouri Attorney General.”
That would be Jay Nixon, the Democrat candidate for Governor. I doubt if he’d be much help. :-(
I’m laughing my head off at this. You did a perfect match-up for Lucy, really cute. Very nice posting.
McCullough’s office won’t accept messages...so I sent an email.
Said Obama is a Muslim and told him to come arrest me, so I can sue him for violating my rights to free speech.
Good post devolve.
Hey dirt bags from Missouri. Show me!
Email and complaint already sent to both Matt Blunt’s office and the Attorney Generals.
Too bad for them the 9th circuit says it’s OK to lie during a campaign...:/
And you would be mildly surprised. Jay Nixon is a no nonsense Attorney General. I don’t think he would take too kindly to this kind of mess. Altho, I will admit, I have been wrong before.
Good for you!
To see two prosecuting attorneys blithely discussing using their position to enforce partisan talking points, intimidate voters, and possibly prosecute political speech ... They better get a clue damn fast, because they have no idea how quickly what they are doing will cause the ‘ties that bind’ to come unraveled.
If anyone that had any doubts about what sort of country this will be under an Obama Presidency, the scales should be off your eyes at this point.
Hey! Let’s start a fund so we can take out a full page ad in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch listing all the lies Obama has told! And then ask for his arrest!

What are you gonna do about it, boy?
Watch it over and over
Lucy’s hands go up in the air just like Joe Biden’s hands!
I resized the LinusSnoopy .gif to match Lucy in some of these posts
That is a GREAT idea!! Let’s look into it! Let’s do the same in the KC “Red’ Star!
Cute. I can make things do that precisely by matching up delay speeds. I never did remake her to go only one way yet.
I have a few ideas on that
Combo .gifs on some
Quicker to set up graphic posts and sometimes the synchronized frames add some zap
I sent this story out to pretty much everyone on my mailing list. Here is the response I got from the head of the Lyon County, NV Republican Party:
Not only this but also threats of legal action against the NRA for running an anti-Obama commercial. I guess we’ve now codified a “right not to be offended”, selectively held only by certain people.

Synchronized gifs are very effective, I’m surprised I haven’t made more but guess I just usually combine them into one gif.
Not sure if you meant your post to be to me?
The question begging to be answered is, IF Obama becomes president, and IF we become deprived of our liberties, do we, the American people, have the resolve to revolt, and take their country back, by any means necessary? Or, have “we” collectively of course, become so acustomed to the socialistic ideals that have been creeping into this country via the liberals, that we’ll be caught by unready and not be able to fight back?
BO is using a play from the Nazis.
Our GOVERNMENT is actively trying to get a Candidate elected. This reminds me of Venezuela last Dec when all of Chavez’s employees (aka government workers) were campaigning for his “reforms”.
This needs to be stopped - what we need to do is flood the state of Missouri with rants about Obama. If there are thousands of “lawbreakers” there will be no way they can stop everyone.
I hope you proudly said you were giving it to McCain!
What is happening in this financial thing is apparently also a social thing.
The Pubbies are at fault for what, not being the good Jew screaming that the Nazis are coming?
I pray that someone will put together an ad with this and the incident where Obama’s people wanted to have the Justice Dept prosecute the group in Tx for the Bill Ayers association ad. This needs to run in every state over and over again. The ad needs to compare the “Truth Squad” to the Nazi Brown shirts. This is very scary.
This is close to whats called the last straw !
Obama is a domestic enemy of these United States and is THE most seditious SOB ever to run for office !
Doom on any Missouri LEO that gets involved in this crap !
We already know that the Democrats have planned with the “fairness doctrine”. Imagine what Obama will do when the remaining opposition questions the Democrats actions going into this economic crisis and the inevitably disastrous results of Obama’s prescription for “fixing” the economy. As I just said a couple posts back, fascism is the final stage of socialism. I was getting sick and tired of communists like Naomi Klein’s “shock doctine” libels directed at people like Milton Friedman and Klein’s attempts to paint Friedman as a fascist. The truth is that Democrats are the opportunists who thrive on other people’s misery and exploit it to advance their agenda. Up to now, however, the United States has been lucky enough not to see the final stage of the Democrat’s agenda. Bush deserves criticism for his assault on civil liberties. Democrats will have a precedent and possibly a president for further attacks on our freedoms.
Shouldn’t the US Attorney General and the FBI be investigating these brown shirts tactics?
Using members of law enforcement labor uinons as political thugs.

Subject: Proper use of Criminal Justice Resources
Why are you threatening to use government resources to prosecute political enemies?
I saw a video tape on WMOV featuring you as a member of the so-called Obama Truth Squad saying you would officially remind voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone making under $250,000 per year.
Are you doing this on government time, using government money? How is this a part of the function of government for the city of St. Louis?
Your mission statement says: To pursue justice for all citizens within the highest standards of ethical behavior and professionalism.
We want to keep this campaign focused on issues. We dont want people to get distracted - Missourians dont want to be distracted - by these divisive character attacks. So were here to respond to any character attacks, to set the record straight... Your comments were cut off at that point.
Missourians dont want to be distracted - so youve decided that you speak for all of Missouri? No one is allowed to counter the claims of Mr. Obama? I think you said it right the first time, *WE* DONT WANT PEOPLE TO GET DISTRACTED... You, as a government official with police power behind you, will use your authority to track down dissent and put an end to it, with official authority, I assume.
If I were your supervisor Id have your resignation on my desk first thing in the morning for making a statement like this to the press while in your official capacity. This and the actions of like-minded sheriffs and other members of law enforcement are completely outside the bounds of your duties and authority. It isnt the job of attorneys or sheriffs to be concerned about what individuals say about a political candidate they favor, unless the First Amendment was overturned last night. And have you extinguished violent crime in St. Louis and now can use police powers to harass law-abiding citizens for exercising God-given rights our forefathers died to protect?
How do you justify participating in a so-called Obama Truth Squad in your capacity as an attorney for the City of St. Louis? Is it your opinion that your official duties include hunting down political opponents who dare to criticize Mr. Obama, using the power and resources of the City of St. Louis? May we please see that your job description so we can determine if this is part of what you are paid to do? Do your supervisors and constituents approve of your using government resources and time to go after political opponents? Is it now the policy of the City of St. Louis to intervene in civil matters (unless libel is now a criminal offense in Missouri, if so, all the more reason never to move there!) when your office represents CRIMINAL matters?
The video has put a deep fear of government into my heart. I thought wed never have a police state, but I guess we are on the way to having one now. To think that a senator campaigning for president has the power to wield police power against his enemies. This isnt the United States I was raised in.
I work for a company based in St. Louis. Thank heavens I do not live there. Hugo Chavez, you have some warm friends waiting your advice in the office of the City of St. Louis.
Are you going to prosecute me for writing to you? I am almost afraid to send this to you, for fear of government retribution. You have most of the guns and money, after all.
Professing to be wise, they became fools!
“I think an economic boycott of St. Louis is in order here. There are clearly far better places to visit than this.”
Hello Emerson Process Management. Are you reading this? Foxboro, Masoneilan, Honeywell, Siemens are knocking on my door looking for business.
Case in point, I refuse to do business with San Franscisco corporations.
I could easily claim to be a member of the McCain campaign (although I'm not, officially.)
See, the problem is, we already have proof that the Obama campaign planted lies about Palin. That's the problem we're dealing with over and over again with these people. They are criminals and like all criminals they will accuse us of the very things they themselves are doing.
It IS very serious.
The Democratic Party is a CRIMINAL organization - a communist criminal organization.
They have gotten away with their massive crimes and have now moved out into total anti-freedom efforts out in the open - this Missouri attempt is going to spread to all other states run by Democrats....states and cities run by Democrats will copy this if it is not stopped NOW.
And it won’t be.
The DEMS KNOW THEIR TIME OF FULL POWER IS ALMOST HERE - they are acting on that power NOW because who is going to stop them???
These words posted here are nothing to these thugs.
America as we have known it is O V E R.
Who is the Governor of Missouri? If he is a DEM - forget it.
What response have you gotten?
Should Hussein be eelcted President, he’ll sic the Justice Dept on anyone who dissents from him under the guise of enforcing hate crimes.
