Missouri Lt. Gov: Did Obama Admin Lean on Governor to Keep Out Nat’l Guard?

Missouri lieutenant governor Peter Kinder expressed anger over the the Missouri National Guard’s absence from Ferguson during riots on Monday night, speculating that the Obama administration may have leaned on the Missouri governor to keep the soldiers back.

Kinder, a Republican, lashed out at Democratic governor Jay Nixon for his failure to send the National Guard into the city while protesters looted and burned over a dozen businesses. Despite activating the Guard a week ago, troops were not deployed to Ferguson until Tuesday morning.

“Where were they last night?” Kinder asked during a Tuesday morning appearance on Fox News. “The law-abiding citizens and business owners and taxpayers of the St. Louis region have the right to ask this governor to answer some questions.”

“Here’s my question that the governor must answer,” the lieutenant governor continued. “Is the reason that the National Guard wasn’t in there was because the Obama administration and the Holder Justice Department leaned on you to keep them out?”

“I cannot imagine any other reason why the governor who mobilized the National Guard would not put them in there to stop this, before it started,” Kinder finished.

Gee, duh, where was your first clue Kinder? the governor is a democrap!

I believe that Obama and Holder had their dirty hands involved .  The riots could have been stopped ! People's safety is a game for Obama and Holder.  Take away their ( Obama and holder ) protection , and lets see how they feel.  These two should be held accountable for everything that has happened in Ferguson. Our Government and Law Enforcement need to step up and enforce  our laws. If they refuse to do their jobs, then it leaves no other choice but to have the PEOPLE enforce the law.

Obama likes to punish the American People to "teach them a lesson".  Remember the shutdown of the World War II Memorial during the last "government shutdown".  Remember the closing of the National Parks to Americans during that same period.  It is almost certain that Obama and Holder pressured Governor Nixon to back off on deploying the National Guard.  The Missouri Guard might well have spoiled all the fun of the MARXIST/COMMUNIST/ISLAMIST TERRORISTS who are doing Obama's and Holder's bidding in Ferguson.

Terrence D. Durrill    You are spot on. Today, I read on Fox News that ISIS has offered to send recruits to Ferguson to help, and to target the police. If they do that (or already have done so) ISIS will not stop when they get done with Ferguson.  I am not retired military but many in my immediate family are so will borrow the phrase "lock and load".  May God help us. 

And the ones he is hurting most are the blacks.

Has Obama (or, Holder for that matter) ever given any indication he cares whether the ones being taught a lesson are black, or white (or hispanic - you wait, your time is coming - when you most expect him to help, he'll leave you swinging in the breeze)?  

Agreed, they are the ones who need to be swinging.

If these protestors, choose to use violence, then they should be met head on with violence ! I believe that looters should be shot on sight ! or this epidemic is not going to stop !

I agree....this is what anarchy and king o wants......an excuse for martial law and boom...the dictator is in...

MICHAEL,

YOU ARE CORRECT..

 ALL THE TIME... YOU HAVE TO SHOT THE TROUBLE MAKERS AND LOOTERS IMMEDIATELY...

PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND THERE SELF AND THERE PROPERTY EVERYTIME...

THE WHITE PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE PROTESTED WHEN O.J. KILLED NICOLE AND HER FRIEND....OBAMA ONLY PROTECTS MUSLIMS,COMMUNISTS,AND BLACKS...

WAKE UP WHITE JERKS....

AMEN

Agreed, that is why they were held back. If I were a business owner I would have been on my rooftop with a rifle, and looters come to my business to loot or destroy it, I shoot, I defend my property .

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
