I guess you missed this at the top of the main page:

Prosecutors and sheriffs from across Missouri are joining the "Obama Truth Squad." Speak out against Obama, face prosecution. FR discussion threads.

Washington, DC – September 26, 2008 – Barack Obama is now using local law enforcement officials to carry out his campaign of legal intimidation by assembling a group of high-ranking Missouri police officials and prosecutors – including St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCullough and City of St. Louis Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce – to identify and target anyone the campaign determines is producing “misleading” political advertisements.

“This is an outrageous and shocking attempt by the Obama campaign to again employ Stalinist, police state tactics against those who dare to disagree with Barack Obama,” said Ed Martin, American Issues Projects president. “I am frankly stunned to see public officials like McCullough and Joyce abusing their official prosecutorial positions to serve as attack dogs for a national political campaign. I am quite certain Missourians elected these individuals to enforce the laws and arrest criminals, not to throw people in jail for daring to practicing free speech.

“The Obama campaign continues to provide a chilling preview of what would happen to political freedom in an Obama administration.”

This new effort is only the most recent attempt by the Obama campaign to crack down on free speech. Obama’s lawyers twice demanded the Department of Justice investigate and prosecute the American Issues Project, its officers, board of directors, and donors. The campaign also threatened stations running American Issues Project’s ad in an unsuccessful attempt to compel them to pull the spot, and ran its own ad in response.

Wonder what they would do if 500,000 people flooded their offices with mail and emails stating that B.O. Hussein is a terrorist sympathizer and friend.

Barak is not a christian. Christians don’t promote abortion, leave their kin folk in poverty or believe in Alinsky’s atheistic communism.

So if Barry or Barry’s campaign lies about McCain, that would be state-sanctioned as being OK? What about “equal protection under the law”? Where is Bizarro-World-reverse-ACLU that would stick up for McCain?

Note to Odumbo thugs - there is a Constitutional right to free speech. If you think that the ads contain lies, then prove your claims in court. Otherwise, STFU.

No, I didn’t miss it.

However, we need to see if there is any MSM coverage of this (outside of KMOV) or if it will be dead air (or spun to enhance the righteous reputation of the Messiah).

I suspect the second...but we shall see over the next couple of days...

Why is it so “wrong” to suggest Obama is a Muslim? His father was a Muslim. His step-father was a Muslim. The Christian “church” of convenience Obama joined preached a message of hatred and intolerance of the “other” that more resembled Islam than Christianity. Radical Black Muslim preachers spoke at the church, published articles in the church bulletin. Farrakhan was given award by the church. In the wake of the 911 attacks the only thing Obama appeared to be worried about was whether Muslims in the USA would be hassled. Finally polls suggest Obama is the overwhelming choice of American and foreign Muslims. I'd say the suspicion is warranted.

This is good news. Run an ad claiming Obama is not a natural born American which is proved because he won't provide a legitimate birth certificate. He has to prove the advertiser a liar in order to win a court case. So we get to see experts pawing over his birth certificate. Ought to be great October news. Or he does an about face and doesn't press charges. He loses either way.

The Barack Obama campaign is asking Missouri law enforcement to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign."

The VP debate is in St. Louis, I think.

Headline?

Obama campaign asks police to monitor VP debate
Palin is Subject to Arrest at Debate

I am beginning to think there are two Constitutions. One has the right to assemble, freedom of speech, right to gun ownership, freedom of religion, among others, while the only thing in the other Constitution is the freedom to kill your unborn baby.

Is there any suggestion about what law would be violated by such ads? Also, would people who put out false or misleading ads or news reports about McCain also be subject to prosecution? I find it hard to believe that these people are serious. On second thought, maybe I can believe it.

Bizarre. And again, here go the RATS unleashing teams of rabid agitating lawyers.

Here in WA, the democrat party waited until the overseas ballots to troops were sent, then filed a petition to have them all declared illegal because the RAT Governor's opponent listed himself at GOP, rather than R.

A judge dismissed it today. But it is unbelievable that they would have the gall. Of Course the papers say nothing. 4 years ago the election was stolen from Dino Rossi by this same RAT woman and her D party auditors in Seattle. It is a grudge match now and it appears the RATs are running scared. And our voter rolls were finally cleaned up a bit. There won't be so much political action after death, this year /s

What Obama and some of his supporters in Missouri are doing is an outrage. All the policemen in Missouri who are in on this should be fired and stripped of their badges, uniforms, police cars, pay, health insurance, paid vacations, sick leave, and retirement benefits. In other words, send them home with nothing. As for the prosecutors in Missouri who are part of this “truth squad,” they should be thrown out on their ears come election time. Sue them for libel and slander against any conservative who dares to tell the truth about Obama.

Good, lets take it to court, and have Obama present evidence under oath, that he was NEVER a muslim, even when he went by the name, “Barry Soetoro”. Lets make him prove how he travelled to Pakistan in 1981, when there was a travel ban, and no one but Muslims were allowed into the country!

This is beautiful!! LETS GET ARRESTED!! LET’S CHALLENGE THIS LAW....How do I go about it? Stand on the corner with a sign, or pass out flyers? This can only help Mcain, folks! We all must do an operation chaos and go get arrested in Missori, fill up their courts, and shine the light on Obama’s facist ways! GET ARRESTED FOR FREE SPEECH!! YES! THIS IS HOW OUR COUNTRY WAS MADE! LETS’S SHINE THE LIGHT ON AMERICAN’S FUTURE WITH OBAMA AS LEADER!

Just recently, it has gone from taking about ten days for mail from here to get back to the U.S. to taking around a MONTH.

I for one want to know why, what is behind that and why it's not being corrected.

Smells like disenfranchisement.

Anyone?

That could be a two-edged sword indeed, especially during election campaigns.

So if Barrak or hair-plug Joe makes an untrue statement, they are subject to arrest as well?

Anything less is a violation of 'equal protection under the law'.

Hi Allegra... Our Secretary of State helped us on this in WA (though he was excruciatingly slow on updating the voter rolls) Wonder if a letter to your SoS would help? The only time I have missed voting was Clinton's 2nd term. I received my overseas ballot one month late. Guess he and WA didn't want to gamble that I might be military. (I wasn't.)
Remember Gore's lawyers doing the same thing when he ran? Their letter explaining how to discount military votes because they didn't have a post office stamp? (since they'd come off a ship). If the MSM media was truthful a lot more light would shine on and halt these dirty deeds. Take care in K!

First isn't this another example of Voter Intimidation.

Second, violation of free speech...free to question, free to challenge.

Third, Barack Hussein Obama has yet to prove his eligibility to be President on the very basic level of birth right. We already know he doesn't have the experience to lead the Nation.
