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...
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....
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 .
