The Governor of Missouri Speaks Out

The Governor of Missouri Speaks Out

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.”

 

Obama’s Subversives

Obama’s Subversives

Melanie Phillips reports some more lies and scary information about who Barack Hussein Obama really is.

Excerpt:

As Trevor Loudon continues to document, Klonsky and his Weather Underground friends Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are part of a far more extensive — and organised – network of Subversives for Obama. In his latest post, Loudon concludes:

Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are involved in an organisation uniting three Marxist parties, a host of ‘60s radicals and terrorists and a new generation of militant activists. That organisation has spawned a spin-off organisation specifically designed to put Barack Obama in the White House and to bring about massive social change across the US.

Read Loudon’s whole post. Astounding.

Another excerpt:

Barack Obama appears to sit on a nexus between Marxist revolutionary activists, unrepentant former terrorists, Black Power racists, Chicago mobsters – oh, and a Saudi who is trying to buy up America. If you were to turn up at US immigration control with a background of such associates, it’s a fair bet they wouldn’t let you off the air-bridge. Yet this man may well become President of the US! If any other candidate had had merely a fleeting relationship with William Ayers, his candidacy would have been terminated before it was even articulated — let alone what we now know about Obama’s key role in Ayers’s CAC and its funding of radical groups; let alone the fact that Obama had been mentored during his formative years by a Communist Party plant; let alone his work for organisations modelled on the seditious philosophy of Saul Alinsky; let alone his two-decade membership of a Black Power church; let alone his relationship with fraudster Tony Rezko.

And yet despite all of this, virtually no-one in the mainstream media is asking any questions. Has there ever been a more staggering, surreal and scary race to the White House?

The mainstream media, with its preponderance of Democrat-loving reporters, and its obvious political bias, is letting down the American people by not reporting these news items, it is failing in its mission to keep the American people informed in an objective way, and it is committing violations of journalistic ethics, which obviously to do not any longer apply.

Environmentalist Groups Actually Democrat Political Machines

Environmentalist Groups Actually Democrat Political Machines

U.S. Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, today released an updated comprehensive investigation into the financial and political activities employed by charitable and environmental organizations claiming to be non-partisan.

The report begins:

Partisan Environmental Groups Senate Floor Statement
by U.S. Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-OK) September 20, 2008

Mr./Madam President, I rise today to shed some light on a subject that is very important to me, as an American citizen, and as the Ranking Member of the Environment and Public Works Committee.

The situation I’m about to discuss reminds me of an old saying: beware of wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing.

Today’s so-called environmental movement can be described in much the same way. Campaigns to “save the cuddly animals” or “protect the ancient forests” are really disguised efforts to raise money for Democratic political campaigns.

Sen. Imhofe then goes on to explain how each of several environmental groups claiming to be non-profit and non-partisan under IRS. Sec. 501 (c) 3 are actually conduits for contributions to the Democrat Party.

Some of the groups mentioned include:

The Sierra Club
The League of Conservation Voters
National Resources Defense Council
Greenpeace
Environmental Defense Fund
The Heinz Foundations
The Pew Charitable Trusts

These groups should surely lose their tax-exempt status since they are clearly not non-partisan.

Tolerance and Love on the Upper West Side

Tolerance and Love on the Upper West Side

On Sunday, September 21st, supporters of the McCain-Palin campaign marched through the Upper West Side of Manhattan carrying McCain-Palin signs and American flags.

Since the Upper West Side of Manhattan is the home of the elite, the intellectuals and academics, you would think that they would love to hear all points of view and discuss them in a rational, intellectual way. Not exactly.

The People’s Cube has a video of the walk and the response from the happy denizens of the UWS.

A group of McCain-Palin supporters dare to march through the Upper West Side – and are met with hatred and rage for being infidels in the heart of liberal Mecca. Republicans are as out of place there as elephants at a donkey show. Area intellectuals jeer them well – just as they had been taught to do. FACT: The number of middle fingers in the “progressive” crowd is directly proportional to the number of PhD degrees in the ten-block radius.

To a liberal, the definition of unity is the elimination of dissent from their point of view.

 

Antisemitism at the UN General Assembly

Antisemitism at the UN General Assembly

Tuesday, September 23, 2008 will go down in history as the day the UN General Assembly provided a platform for a head of state to spew unadulterated, vile antisemitism – to the applause of the assembled nations of the world. The United Nations has become the largest global purveyor of antisemitism in the world today. In the full knowledge that the President of Iran advocates the destruction of the UN member state of Israel, the UN invited him to mount the dais and gave him a megaphone.

 

September 23, 2008: The United Nations General Assembly gave President Ahmedinejad of Iran a global platform for spewing unadulterated, vile antisemitism – met by a round of applause. What a despicable and useless institution.

 

Obama and Voter Fraud

Obama and Voter Fraud

Newsmax published an article today about Obama’s association with ACORN.

I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work. — Barack Obama, Speech to ACORN, November 2007

The mainstream media, totally in the lap of Barack Obama, fail to write about his nefarious associations with ACORN, Bill Ayres, and the anti-semitic Nation of Islam head, Louis Farrakhan.

The article begins:

The excuse parroted by most newsmedia for failing to give Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., a full vetting, such as they are doing with Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, is that “after 20 months of campaigning and debate,” all is known about the senator. Wrong!

For instance, how many voters know that Obama, during his four-year tenure in Chicago as a community organizer, worked as a trainer for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now — the infamous ACORN, whose affiliate, Project Vote, is known for voter fraud — the same ACORN from which a mighty mortgage mess has grown. Upon his return to Chicago after Harvard Law School, Obama provided legal representation for ACORN and for Tony Rezko (recently convicted of bribery and money laundering), who was Obama’s main money man during his years in the Illinois State Senate. Rezko had helped the Obamas purchase a home in Chicago’s politically correct Hyde Park. Obama sat on the boards of the philanthropic Woods Foundation and the Joyce Foundation, both of whom funneled millions of dollars to ACORN.

Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)

Which community activist/political organization in the United States is the largest, most radical left, and most untrustworthy? The answer is ACORN, which bills itself as the nation’s largest community organization for the rights of low- and moderate-income families. Its hidden agenda, however, is to change the form of the U.S. government from a republic to a socialist oligarchy, using class warfare and the aid of radical liberals within the Democrat Party. This hidden agenda explains why the liberal newsmedia go mute on Obama’s ACORN ties.

The article goes on to talk about ACORN’s well documented instances of voter fraud:

ACORN, Project Vote, and Voter Fraud

Although ACORN has pled to various charges of voter fraud, it continues today enrolling large numbers of voters, some legitimate and others not so much. ACORN tee shirts are visible at Obama rallies.

According to the Consumer Rights League, ACORN has been involved in voter fraud, directly or indirectly, in Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia. ACORN’s Project Vote, for which Obama was a paid employee in Chicago, is the organization that appears to be most active in voter fraud. ACORN and Project Vote have a rap sheet of voter misconduct and voter registration fraud that extends across the nation

PETA Urges Ben & Jerry’s to Use Human Milk

PETA Urges Ben & Jerry’s to Use Human Milk

PETA Urges Ben & Jerry’s To Use Human Milk

VERMONT — People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow’s milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman.

“PETA’s request comes in the wake of news reports that a Swiss restaurant owner will begin purchasing breast milk from nursing mothers and substituting breast milk for 75 percent of the cow’s milk in the food he serves,” the statement says.

PETA officials say a move to human breast milk would lessen the suffering of dairy cows and their babies on factory farms and benefit human health.

“The fact that human adults consume huge quantities of dairy products made from milk that was meant for a baby cow just doesn’t make sense,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Everyone knows that ‘the breast is best,’ so Ben & Jerry’s could do consumers and cows a big favor by making the switch to breast milk.”

In a statement Ben and Jerry’s said, “We applaud PETA’s novel approach to bringing attention to an issue, but we believe a mother’s milk is best used for her child.”
