The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.
Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore., not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property. JudicialWatch.org obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request lodged last year.
In one exchange from Nov. 6, 2011, officials from the Department of Homeland Security and the GSA discuss a group of 11 protesters camped out at the federally-owned Terry Schrunk Plaza.

But I keep flashing back to Bush's 2000 'new tone'.
Give the TEA PARTY CREDIT that is the Paul/Paulete Reveres in doing what needs to be done to take this country back.
Got to remember, it is summertime, still vacation season, the olympics are still on.
Once the summer and the olympics pass, people get back to the normal routines, kids back in school, folks will begin to pay attention. Add to that, once the conventions take place.
When does this long-line of illegal activity finally amount to high crimes and misdemeanors in the minds of Congress and the eyes of the public? We really don’t have an independent press anymore either.

Springtime for Hitler.
You can still get on the radar and still get the health care you need in the future, they have a way of forgetting.
Of course those OWS folks didn’t do it all on their own.
That is why we have both talk radio and the internet.
Yeah, but ... but Romney LIED about Obama removing the work requirements from Welfare !!!
That is why gun sales have gone through the roof.
I think Obama and Soros did too. But it backfired, it became a laughing stock. Plus it sapped a lot of the energy out of the liberal left.
“Give the TEA PARTY CREDIT that is the Paul/Paulete Reveres in doing what needs to be done to take this country back”
I was questioning how long the Tea Party would remain the solution before becoming part of the problem as humans are absolutely terrible wielding power. Eventually they succumb to power and abuse it even in churches. History proves me right but credit goes to Lord Acton.
That is why the TP has no leader. It is for “we the people” to lead.
When there is no leaders, there is much less danger of corrupting.
White House told authorities not to crack down on New Black Panthers too.
this is why we need four more years of obama because Romney would be worse..
It was obvious from the start this was the case, but confirmation is nice.
