Anyway, FYI and posted earlier.

NOTE: The following text is a quote:

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

I am beginning to think the US has been taken over by the body snatchers...
how so called intelligent people have been soooo brainwashed is beyond my comprehension-

I guess when Dems can justify killing babies they can justify anything...Mother Teresa said, “As long as a baby isn’t safe in its mothers womb no one will be safe.”

I think we may be on the brink and NOT SAFE....even if McCain wins they will riot and scream and do whatever....and justify it all.

I suggest downloading the stories so if the websites are brought down we can still pass the information around.

I have noticed in the past that Drudge is very slow to post anything new on the weekend. Maybe he is gathering information and will do a proper expose. If not then the talk shows need to be e-mailed this story and/or the links.

McCain’s camp needs to get this also, if they already have not so they can address it at the right time during the news cycle.

If the talk shows pick it up Monday then Drudge will report. If Drudge reports then the campaign will pick it up. McCain needs to make this a front-and-center story in his next speech.

Every Republican elected official of any standing needs to pile onto Obama for this one.

“even if McCain wins they will riot and scream and do whatever”

I would rather have them on the outside p___ing in than on the inside p____ing out.

I think the collective “we” of America can handle whatever rioting and screaming they want to do.

Ask your Proverbs-quoting friends to come up with one supporting Obama killing off babies that survive abortion attempts. Let’s see them come up with a Proverb for THAT one.

Excellent Point!!!

Been doing that - and saving screenshots.

Did not actually get to see the Drudge stories, only heard tell of their existence from several eyewitnesses whom I have no reason to doubt.

Ask your Proverbs friends about this one:

11 If thou forbear to deliver them that are drawn unto death, and those that are ready to be slain;
12 If thou sayest, Behold, we knew it not; doth not he that pondereth the heart consider it? and he that keepeth thy soul, doth not he know it? and shall not he render to every man according to his works?

Communistic manuevering on Obama’s part. He better watch out or he will end up in jail.

Please keep in mind that these friends of mine are not fringy wackos.

They are, however, assholes.

He is letting all of this go to his head..

Why shouldn't he, with the media talking him up as if he is God himself, without sin, perfect, and can do no wrong?

Mark my words, God is not mocked. HE will cause something to happen that will humble Obama, however WE have to stay in prayer. Pray for our Nation--this time our very lives depend on it.

The last guy who mocked the Lord dramatically (Herod) got eaten up with worms right in front of everybody. God doesn't do things that showy anymore, but there are days I wish He would. Congress has yet to experience the fear of God.

Here's to praying that God himself will open up a can of whoop-ass on all of them before the election!

Adolph was a sick piece of work, wasn’t he? Another illustration of his cold efficiency is that he had people all lined up to take over the care of pets when their owners were shipped off to concentration camps. I doubt Obama has planned that far ahead.

As I have said for some time now, if things really get tight at the end, watch for the Clintons to act. There is no way they will permit Obama to win. That would mean, in effect, no shot at the White House for 8 more years. To think that the Clintons would accept that flies in the face of Clinton history. They are power mad, ruthless and willing to do whatever it takes to sink Obama. They are hoping that the natural gravity of his incompetence and inexperience will eventually take hold of the independents and Reagan Democrats, which I expect will be the case. But count on the fact that they have Obama nukes in their arsenal and are ready to push the button if things look close the last two weeks.

Why is it that many FReepers see the truth and so many others have scales over their eyes?

Wolf Blitzer, Keith Olbermann and the other idiot box talking heads as well as people's own local print media that will never explain the radical left's war on America and how it has manifested itself through incremental change.
