White House told authorities not to crack down on 'Occupy' protesters, documents show
By Perry Chiaramonte
Published August 08, 2012
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 will pass virtually unnoticed, I'm sure. People are still sleeping.

Hell, Obama produced and directed OWS.
Obama....just helping criminals that other presidential administrations are unwilling to help....
Step 2. Selectively enforce laws based on political choices and personal friendships of the elected officials.
Now tell me how that is different from throwing out the rule of law and just enforcing a tyranny of the will of the current political leaders.
” Pretty revealing - and sobering.
But will pass virtually unnoticed, I’m sure. People are still sleeping. “
Or until 200 million people watch Fox News.
its for sure our politicians from both sides of the isle dont care
This is NOT surprising. I’d be surprised if “O” DIDN’T advise this course.
And totally in keeping with the 0bama WH.
But they call TEA Party members, “terrorists”.
U S Constitution Article 2, Section 3:
“Presidential responsibilitiesHe shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; HE SHALL TAKE CARE THAT THE LAWS BE FAITHFULLY EXECUTED, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”
Class warfare ,,, on the other hand the admin. would have no tolorance with the Tea Party .
First local officers are told not to arrest or deport illegals who are breaking the law and now we have this ,,, a license for occupy wallstreeters to create a state of anarchy without consequence .
0bama has created the environment for a civil uprising and he has done it on purpose ,,, mark my words !!! The Nov. election is not looking like a good prospect for a second term and he will need to stop the process ,,, martial law just might be in the recipe for him to continue past Nov. 2012 .
I’m shocked. Shocked!
People are always asleep. Otherwise, how could a totally unvetted, Marxist, empty suit who’s never had a job ever get elected President of these United States? On top of that, the people then accept, without any supporting evidence, and in the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary, that he is “brilliant” - perhaps the smartest man ever to occupy the office.
I will not vote for Romney, but I wish he would say, “I will divulge all my tax records when Obama divulges all his academic records - to include transcripts, writings, proof of residency, and passports held at the time he attended Occidental, Columbia, and Harvard.”
Hmmm, so if we all had lobotomies and did not bath and wear the same clothes for a couple of months, then melted in with the OWS crowd, we could overthrow the government without the government intervening. Marvelous!
The only way this government/country works is with people of honor who swear an oath and follow that oath. We do not have those people in government and it would appear there are about 45% of the population that suffers from that lack of character.
While the Tea Party might help in the near term, one has to question when they would also be part of the problem.
The country must return to the brilliance of the founders and the LIMITED government they designed otherwise there is NOTHING on the horizon which would indicate anything other than a revolution will save us and even that would not be a guarantee if we did not return to the foundation of this country.
As with all the others there be no consequences.
Just best not to make a stink, go along with it, and keep your head out of the radar screen.....that is if you want any health care in the future when you need it.
For now that is.
"Occupy Portland saw some of the more violent protests of the national movement. A week before the email exchange, 25 demonstrators were arrested after they refused to leave Jamison Square in the Pearl District after the park was closed at midnight. The arrests were the conclusion of an intense standoff that lasted until the early hours of the morning."This is more evidence that the Obama regime is invested with radical un-American revolutionaries.
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.
>>And the show closed in a fortnight<<
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.
