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.

Good show, one problem, guess who they arrest?  The person protecting their property or their life!  Most stupid thing I ever heard, let troublemakers do as they please but arrest anyone in self protection mode.

Hear, hear, Mike!

Dear Friend:

Today, following the grand jury's decision in the tragic death of Missouri teenager Michael Brown, I wrote to Attorney General Eric Holder urging the Justice Department to complete a thorough investigation of the Ferguson Police Department.  The full text of my letter follows.



The Honorable Eric H. Holder, Jr.
Attorney General of the United States
950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20530-0001

Dear Attorney General Holder:

I am writing to express my strong support for the Department of Justice investigation into whether the Ferguson Police Department has engaged in discriminatory policing practices.  It is imperative that we find out if there is a pattern and practice of civil rights violations in Ferguson.

The heartbreaking death of Michael Brown is only the latest of too many such tragedies that we have seen all across this country. So many of these tragedies are born out of distrust between the police department and the local community.

When I was a county supervisor, I worked to bring community policing to our county when it was clear that we needed to increase the trust between police officers and the citizens they serve. In every community, we need mutual respect. We need police officers who reflect their communities. We need personal relationships between law enforcement and the citizens they protect, and real partnerships between them to keep their communities safe. And we need accountability if anyone-whether it is a citizen or police officer-violates the law.

That is why it is critical for the Justice Department to move swiftly to complete its civil rights review of the Michael Brown case and its investigation into whether the Ferguson Police Department has engaged in a pattern of excessive use of force, mistreatment of prisoners or racial profiling in its searches and arrests. As part of this probe, I would urge you to determine whether the lack of diversity in the Ferguson Police Department contributed to the culture of distrust between local residents and police.

A thorough review by your Department will bring these facts to light so we can ensure that the people of Ferguson have the police department they deserve - one that respects their rights, reflects their community and works hard every day to earn their trust.

Sincerely,


Barbara Boxer
United States Senator

Sorry about the 'side being cut off'

The Whole Obama Administration and the majority of the 'Air-Headed Congress' that support Obama's Big Government Are/Were/will always be 'sticking their nose's into what was once Delegated to The State

But there was one word that should NOT have been in Pee-losi's letter to Holder: HONORABLE!

    This vile, lawless administration is all over these disgusting riots! In the last few days, a violent, extremist Islamic agitator was arrested for his role in doing whatever he could to amp up the violence and destruction in Ferguson; there is no question in my mind that the dastardly duo, "Caligula" and Holder have been deliberately sending outside agitators to purposely heighten the level of violence! There is also no question that, along with his so-called half brother Malik Obama, this phoney "President" is a ranking member of the Muslim Brotherhood! I have no proof of that, but everything he has done to aid and abet Islamic terrorist groups clearly points to it! I bring this up because of the recent arrest of that Islamic extremist; doesn't it all just fit together too neatly? The so-called "progressive" left totally thrives on racial unrest, and "Caligula" (or is it Valerie Jarrett?) and Holder, along with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, are enjoying all of this way too much! I think that if Ms Jarrett were to suddenly disappear, "Caligula" would have a complete melt-down.....he wouldn't know what to do next! This treasonist administration must be taken down by any means necessary, and that's the bottom line!

Where's Reagan when we NEED him?!

Check out Dennis Michael Lynch....He has the guts to be the next Reagan.....or LTC West. Go to DML2016!

These tactics have been used successfully all over the world. Sending in agitators from different nations, that would be states in our case, to inflame the locals. These people are well funded and organized. In most countries it's used to overthrow regiemes but here it's a distraction to confuse issues and to ultimately destroy the middle-class. Democrate or Republican it matters nothing to them.
Obama had the governor call national guard off. He knew his follow communist comrade agitators would be there to riot and cause chaos. Obama called for peace to distance himself from his buddies actions. Obama is an agitator, aka, "community organizer". According to Saul Alinsky (whom Obama was a student), a "community organizer" is communist code word for an agitator and revolutionary.

Well of course he did, he ( Hussein Sotoroe ) was probably watching it on T.V. shouting "Burn Baby Burn", you k now damn well he hates American businesses, so he was not about to keep them from burning the local businesses down, if he can't screw them with obamacare, he will just send out his brothers, which he did and let them be heard. That works in Kenya where he was born, so what the heck he tried it in Ferguson.

No doubt in my mind!    They wanted these riots just like the occupy wall street orchestrated by an administration that was doing dirty stuff behind closed doors.   That creep is good at giving stand down orders!

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Talks To The Dead: – He Worked On Paris Climate Deal With Long-Dead Chinese Leader

Former Vice President Joe Biden mistakenly claimed on Monday that he worked on the Paris Climate Accord with former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping — who died more than 20 years before its signing.

Joe Biden claimed tonight that he worked with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping on the Paris Climate Accord.

Except the current Chinese President is Xi Jinping.

Deng Xiapoing left office in 1992 and has been dead for 23 years.

Biden made the gaffe while citing his accomplishments in President Barack Obama’s administration.

“One of the things I’m proudest of is getting passed, getting moved, getting in control of the Paris Climate Accord,” Biden said in a speech at the College of Charleston. “I’m the guy who came back after meeting with Deng Xiaoping and making the case that I believe China will join if we put pressure on them. We got almost 200 nations to join.”

Xiaoping served as the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992, and passed away in 1997. Xi Jinping, China’s current president, came to power 2013 and signed the country onto the 2016 agreement.

In June 2017, President Trump announced that the U.S. would withdraw from the agreement, stating that accord will “undermine the economy” and “puts [the United States] at a permanent disadvantage.”

In addition to the Xiaoping gaffe, Biden bizarrely declared in a campaign speech that he is a “candidate for the United States Senate” and that people could “vote for the other Biden” if they prefer one of his rivals.

“My name is Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate. Look me over, if you like what you see, help out. If not, vote for the other Biden,” the 77-year-old said at the First in the South Dinner.

Biden’s confusing comments come as Democrat primary candidates are scheduled to debate in Charleston Tuesday evening. The former vice president faces increasing pressure to give a standout performance as his “firewall” in the Palmetto State crumbles in the face of a surging Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). The Vermont senator is fresh off a decisive victory in Nevada caucuses on Saturday. Earlier this month, he placed first the New Hampshire primary and won the popular vote in Iowa. In a survey released Monday, the Public Policy Polling outfit said Biden leads South Carolina with 36 percent of support and Sanders is in second at 21 percent.
