After World War II, trying to explain how good Germans allowed the monstrous evil of the Nazi regime, a pastor recalled that the Nazis came for the communists, and he did nothing; then for the trade unionists, then for the gypsies and Jews; then for the Catholics and each time he did nothing. When they came for him, none were left to defend him.
Last week, here in America, they came for Jessica Hughes, and I will not be silent. I will not turn away, hoping, in the end, they will not come for me.
Jessica Hughes of Lufkin, Texas, former Marine, mother of three, answered her cell phone in the car, coming home from the emergency room. Her 9-year-old had suffered a mild concussion, but was OK.
The caller was a female Obama volunteer who asked if Jessica would support Obama for president.
Jessica replied, "No, I don't support him. Your guy is a socialist who voted four times in the state Senate to let little babies die in hospital closets; I think you should find something better to do with your time." Then Jessica hung up.
The next day, a man and a woman in suits showed up at the door of her home, identifying themselves as members of the Secret Service.
The Secret Service agents stated that the Obama campaign had complained of a death threat. They had quoted Jessica as saying, "I will never support Obama, and he will wind up dead on a hospital floor."
Jessica's husband had heard Jessica's side of the original phone call and verified the actual quote. To which the female agent replied, "Oh? Well why would she (the Obama volunteer) make that up?"

As a former Police Officer and Correctional Officer I have taught all my family the follwing
1. Never invite any Law Officer into your home. If they have a warrant they get in. If not, the conversation takes place outside the door.
2. Know your local Police. Most Departments have web pages with pictures of their officers. Unless you live in a large city this is helpful.
3. Always ask for personal ID. Uniformed Officers have ID cards. Do not assume that a man standing at your door in a uniform that looks that the ones your local police wears is the Police if you do not personally know him. Check the ID card. If he refuse to show one the conversatuion is over and you close the door.
4. Never, let me repeat that. NEVER go with a Police Officer so you “can help with their inquiries”, “talk at the station” etc. If they do not have a warrant and you are not under arrest you have NO obligation to go anywhere with them.
Uniforms and police style equipment are easy to come by.
She stood up to them pretty good. But how long before a similar defiant stance is met with,
“That’s it! We’re taking you in for questioning!”
Interesting that when I comment about fighting back against the marching legions of brownshirts who could come for the people (in a lefty world they will be called “dissidents”), employing the means to do so pursuant to what the Second Amendment actually intended, I get my post banned? The Second Amendment was created SPECIFICALLY for that purpose! Just read what the founders had to say about it.
“Instead of brown shirts, Obama calls it his ‘civilian national security force’ that would be as powerful, strong and well-funded as the Army, Marines, Navy and Air Force.”
So, is that why the “resistance is futile” comment was made, I wonder?
PLUS, we are armed!!!
I think you're right. They don't sound like the real thing to me. Investigating agents identify themselves, don't they? These sound like campaign "workers" to me. It would be great to identify them, since impersonating an officer is a felony.
I just found out that every conversation I have with my husband (who's in Iraq), every email that I send him, is monitored. And I mean that there is a live person listening in on our phone calls as we speak. So my husband is gone for 15 months and I can't have even one private conversation with him in that whole time.
And this is *before* the socialists take over.
That does seem more likely than that the Secret Service would come. Even if it were taken seriously as a death threat, wouldn’t the FBI be the first to investigate? Secret Service is not a law enforcement agency.
Also, thanks for the tip! I am too trusting and let anyone who comes to my door in the house. Good idea about asking for ID and calling to verify. If the person is legitimate, they should not mind waiting outside while I make a quick phone call.
IIRC Jessica signed up and posted about this here at FR when the story first came out.
Cant remember her screen name.
Was not a pretty pic of what happened in her home the day They came.
Ummmmmmmmmmmm......because they are thugs:
Any advice on how to act when stopped by the police either in a car or not?
Next time it will be leather coats and they'll identify themselves as members of the Gestapo.Thats when the hardware comes out...
I believe she is quillizmightier.
Jessica, we are talking about you, so in Freeper etiquette I am pinging you.
If you have a moment, stop by and tell us the latest on this situation.
Why be surprised - reports of the bias through omission have been prevalent. A land without God is damned and we are turning our backs on Him! He has been telling us and we are not listening. Beware - God warned us that we, mankind, did not want kings (aka government) and we insisted. Sometimes He gives us just what we ask for! Ever think we’ll learn to be careful for what we ask?
Surprised? I am not surprised. With Obama and his goon squad, I think this is par for the course. Perhaps you didn’t mean that comment just for me, but for “everyone”?
I agree with everything you said. This nation has definitely turned its back on God. “We” have told Him that He is not necessary here. It breaks my heart. :^(
By the way, welcome to Free Republic.
Sorry I haven’t been around...honestly the defeat depressed me so much I haven’t hardly watched the news at all. I am coming out of it though and I have contacted the local Repub Party and am looking into ‘exploiting’ my exposure to run for some low level office. I really think that what happened was Providence and the loss to Obama just solidified my determination that what was once the Party of Conservatives return to that state. I am sick of the morons pandering to the Left as if getting on our knees for them will make us popular. Despite what those who live in the bubble of Manhattan Society believe and convey to us via the MSM, I remain convinced that our nation is filled with individuals who would welcome a genuinely traditional, conservative (fiscally and socially)revolution in politics. I want to be there when it happens.
Wish me luck!
