Michigan Democrat Rep. Gary Peters threatens TV station licenses over Obamacare ad
Washington Examiner ^ | 02/22/2014 | Charles Hoskinson

Posted on 02/23/2014 4:29:56 PM PST by GraceG

While Julie Boonstra of Dexter, Mich., struggles to survive leukemia, she now also has to cope with being called a liar by the Democrat who wants to be her next senator.

And the campaign of Rep. Gary Peters is also going after television stations airing ads in which her story is featured, threatening their licenses.

The ad by Americans for Prosperity features Boonstra talking about how her insurance was canceled under Obamacare and saying that Peters' decision to vote for the law "jeopardized my health." The ads are airing in Michigan as Peters seeks the Democratic nomination to replace Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., who is not seeking re-election.

Media organizations investigating the ad's claims note that Boonstra was able to find comparable new insurance under the law; the Washington Post's "Fact Checker" blog gave the ad "two Pinocchios" (as compared to four for President Obama's claim that people could keep their insurance under the law).

The Nazis and commie “Progs” love to dish it out but the faggots can’t take it when it comes back at them. Nazis and commie are nothing but a bunch of yellow bellied cowards.

How long until we have to start setting up pirate radio stations that are pumping out the internet streams from Rush, Mark Levin and Glenn Beck?

I thought that Ted Cruz is a BAAAAAD man for trying to stop Obamacare. Can Mitch or Johnnie explain why they worked so hard to fund this fiasco to this woman?

Ah, that'll never be needed. The Libs bitch about conservative talk radio, they need it, though, as a convenient boogie-man to scare the rubes. They know, though that it isn't a real threat. As log as making a buck is what matters Rush, Levin, Beck et al won't do anything to upset the payday apple cart. The Libs that are in power know it, as it's bee sproven true time and again.

If, and I mean if, not when, one of them decides to make it truly about saving the Republic, like running for office or speaking truthfully about extent of action that it will take to set things right, and not about ratings, then the Libs will do something truly tyrannical about it.

Obviously democrats HATE the free press and do everything they can to take it over when they get into power.

Democrats are fascists.

If we learn nothing else from this; it should be that there are nothing but crickets when it comes to criticism from his Democrat buddies.
If only conservatives could ever learn not to eat their own and stick it to the establishment.

And the only way to deal with this B.S. is to turn it back on him/them immediately. “Mr. Peters doesn’t want you to know the truth about Obamacare and its impact on Americans. He has even threatened the organizations and stations that are bringing you the truth.” In other words, hoist him with his own petard!

Not surprised in the least and the only way to deal with this B.S. is to turn it right back on him/them. “Mr. Peters doesn’t want you to know the truth about Obamacare. Mr. Peters has even gone so far as to threaten the organizations and stations that are willing to tell you the truth.” And every time one of the Demo/Neo-Fascists pulls this kind of crap, shine a bright light on it and see if they can keep up. In other words, hoist ‘em with their own petards...

Terri Lynn Land for Senate

I saw the lawyer letter. What kind of lawyer uses a Washington Post editorial as part of a legal argument regarding "truth?"

That was just pure intimidation tactics. Knowing AFP's Scott Hagerstrom, that's going to just piss him off.
