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.

Fifty One years ago a man stood at the Lincoln Memorial and said " I have a Dream" He went on to describe that Dream and it was based on Freedom for Black people. The same Freedom that the White people of this great nation took for granted. Well Mr. King your Dream has turned into a Nightmare. During the past fifty one years, the Federal Government has taken that Freedom away from all races. Your people are not moving from small getoes to large getoes like they were when you gave your speach. They have been moved to what is known as " the projects ". Instead of your people being in small Southern Jail cells as you mentioned in your speach, they fill up our prisons where most of them get their education on how to survive on the streets. The Leaders today blame the problem on poverty. How many times did you use the word God in your speach? Has the modern Black man decided that the God of Abriham was a White Mans God? The Ten Commandments were only written to control the have nots? For the good people out in Furguson who are protesting, can't you see you are just a diversion for the Looters like the fires they set?

All demonRATS are evil. 

if the Oathkeepers showed up on there bikes there would be no conflick, all they had to do is freeze the SOB's with water from the fire department that's all that was needed freeze there azz, lol

 

Obama is formenting trouble so that he can declare Marshall Law. If he does, and attempts to confiscate American's guns, it will get bloody real quick. 

Gun Up America, obummer will come after our guns before he leaves office.

This commenter posted on National Review is telling it like it is-Peter Kinder said on Fox tonight that the mayor called and called the governor's office and could not get a response from anyone. Kinder asked"Where was the governor last night?"

Here is the comment:


Folks, I watched a live feed of a local St. Louis station from the 8:00 announcement until late into the night. They did nonstop coverage. At maybe 1:00 or 2:00 a.m. they were able to get a phone interview with the mayor, who stated that he had been calling the governor's office for hours, begging for the National Guard to be brought in…

but he couldn't get anyone to even return a single call.

Why make it known that you've got the NG on standby, then do nothing when the town turns into a war zone?

what collusion and corruption in the white house, doj and Missouri Govenor? is he serious.. we all know Obama is the most fair and honest person there is along with Holder along with the midget king of Korea. 

Holder and Obama. Who do you think little smelly Sharpton is running around for trying to be important?. 

They are trying to get society to collapse now so that they can bring the Country to it's knees. They would love a Black/white civil 

These thugs are stupid. I think we have backed off these animals too far and for too long.

I agree, we have backed off for too long.

Missouri had a Republican Governor before Jay Nixon. His name was Matt Blunt, and he decided not to run for re-election in 2008. I saw him on Fox news a few times, commenting on how his state is combating illegal immigration. Sometimes, I'll receive recycled e-mails with the title "Missouri has no illegal aliens".

I wonder what possessed the voters of Missouri to try-out a Democrat Governor in 2008.

Of course the head goat fornicator didn't want the guard in ferguson,  this lying sack of sheet wants a race war.
he is doing everything in his power to piss of the American
citizens to the point of civil war.  This demon-rat and its
bunch of scumbags in the whitehouse wanjt the USA to
look like somalia, or some other muslim turd world dung
pit.  They are traitors, every stinking one of them, and
need to be physically removed and disapeared, on a
vwery permanent basis......  This chicago muslim goat
fornicator  does not give a dam about the blacks, they are
only useful pawns in his mind, and if he causes a few
thousand black deaths to further his aganda, there nothng
but dumb arsed voters, can replace them with hispanics.
This whole thing could have been solved and defused with
a couple water cannon and tankers.  Rioters don't riot
well soakng wet and cold in below freezing weather..
round up them up, identify them,  strip them of any
government support,  welfare, food stamps, medical,
college payment, ETC,  permanently, and cease the
government enablement  for them to have the time to go
riot and destroy their own neignborhood.  The agitators,
Including the government ones from justice department,
round them up and try and convict them for high crimes
against the country,  and hang them...

ALERT ALERT

Horrible: Democrats Set The Constitution On Fire With Fraudulent Impeachment

House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning after an investigation that violated fundamental provisions of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

The investigation of the president began with the complaint of a so-called “whistleblower” who turned out to be a rogue Central Intelligence Agency employee, protected by a lawyer who had called for a “coup” against Trump in early 2017.

Democrats first demanded that the “whistleblower” be allowed to testify. But after House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) was found to have lied about his committee’s contact with the “whistleblower,” and after details of the “whistleblower’s” bias began to leak, Democrats reversed course. In violation of the President Trump’s Sixth Amendment right to confront his accuser, Democrats refused to allow the “whistleblower” to testify. They argue the president’s procedural rights, even if they existed, would not apply until he was tried in the Senate — but they also invented a fraudulent “right to anonymity” that, they hope, might conceal the whistleblower even then.

Schiff began the “impeachment inquiry” in secret, behind the closed doors of the Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF) in the basement of the U.S. Capitol, even though none of the testimony was deemed classified. Few members of Congress were allowed access. Schiff allowed selective bits of testimony to leak to friendly media, while withholding transcripts of testimony.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), having allowed the secret process to unfold, legitimized it with a party-line vote authorizing the inquiry. The House resolution denied President Trump the procedural rights enjoyed by Presidents Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, and denied the minority party the traditional right to object to witnesses called by the majority.

Rather than the House Judiciary Committee, which traditionally handles impeachment, Pelosi also deputized the House Intelligence Committee to conduct fact-finding; the Judiciary Committee was turned into a rubber stamp. Schiff held a few public hearings, but often failed to release transcripts containing exculpatory evidence until after they had passed.

In the course of the Intelligence Committee’s investigation, Schiff quietly spied on the telephone records of his Republican counterpart, Ranking Member Devin Nunes (R-CA). He also snooped on the phone records of a journalist, John Solomon; and on the phone records of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, acting as President Trump’s personal lawyer.

Schiff’s eavesdropping violated both the First Amendment right to press freedom and the Sixth Amendment right to counsel. Yet he proceeded undeterred by constitutional rights, publishing the phone logs in his committee’s report without warning, confirmation, or explanation, alleging that Nunes and the others were part of a conspiracy to assist the president’s allegedly impeachable conduct. When Republicans on the Judiciary Committee asked the Intelligence Committee’s majority counsel, Daniel Goldman, to explain the phone logs, he refused to answer,

Ironically, Schiff had done exactly what Democrats accuse Trump of doing: abused his power to dig up dirt on political opponents, then obstructed a congressional investigation into his party’s and his committee’s misconduct.

Democrats’ articles of impeachment include one for the dubious charge of “abuse of power,” which is not mentioned in the Constitution; and one for “obstruction of Congress,” which in this case is an abuse of power in itself.

Alexander Hamilton, writing about impeachment in Federalist 65, warned that “there will always be the greatest danger that the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties, than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt.” Democrats have fulfilled Hamilton’s worst fears.

The Trump impeachment will soon replace the 1868 impeachment of President Andrew Johnson — which the House Judiciary Committee staff actually cited as a positive precedent — as the worst in American history.

In service of their “coup,” Democrats have trampled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Republic has never been in greater danger.
