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.

That TV station should push back against the Obama camp by telling them that ever since “W” canceled the Tuesday Election it will be held on Wednesday, so there!

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.

When BO says “anyone” making $250k, isn’t that “family” income and not single earner? I don’t really want to go to his website and look around...

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...

Christians also don’t believe someone goes to Heaven because they were “kind”.

Sadly, McCain killed the first amendment a few years ago.

Get ready folks, this is going to interesting.
