Obama Wants NRA Ads Banned
The latest target is the NRA and stations in Pennsylvania.

www.newsmax.com...




The NRA says Obama's camp are sending out these "intimidating cease and desist letters" to cable operators and television stations, threatening their FCC licenses if they run the ads. The NRA charged that "Obama and the DNC have been using strong-arm tactics reminiscent of Chicago machine politics to try and cover up the truth and silence NRA by forcing the stations to assist them in hiding Obama's radical anti-gun record."


And now, Obama and the DNC have opened a new front in their assault on your First Amendment rights by calling on their followers to contact these station managers to demand that the stations not run NRA-PVF's ads.


NRA stands behind the accuracy of these ads, and NRA attorneys have responded to the Obama campaign's despicable and abusive attempt to trample on the First Amendment by sending a thorough rebuttal to station managers. This rebuttal clearly and conclusively refutes the Obama campaign's fallacious claims that the ads are inaccurate.


The NRA has set up a web site detailing its position on Obama at www.gunbanobama.com.



Seems these tactics are happening elsewhere also.

Is this uncommon?

Let me remind everyone that BUSH would have not been able to achieve a tenth of his abuses while in office had it not been for the blind support he enjoyed from so many.

Whether tyranny comes from the left or the right, it is still tyranny.

Why the thought of "TRUTH SQUADS" is not repugnant to every living soul in America is beyond me. It should strike FEAR into the heart of everyone who hears those two words together.

We have truly descended into madness, imo.

I need help here guys/gals. I read the whole thing that the op posted. It seems to me that it is coming from one person. Okay, I got to admit, I don't get it. Please help me understand the thing. I live in a suburb of KC; on the Kansas side, but what happens in Missouri, happens to us. So what is the big fart about????? I read it, I don't get it. Maybe it's because I just got back from a wedding with food and tons of booze, but still.

Given the democrats desperate attempts to change the outcome of the election in 2004 by going to the same Court in St.Louis and having a democrat Judge rule that the polls had to stay open until everyone standing in line had a chance to vote.(of course just for ST.Louis, not the whole state.) When state law clearly states the polls must close at 7PM! The republicans and Election officials got that ruling over turned in federal court!

And what people that don't live in Missouri should know is ST. Louis county has a democrat majority.

The only real scandal Blunt has been in is violating the open records law. he was accused of deleting emails But that was never proven. And the person that made the accusations had recently been fired by the governor.

BH seems like I've been telling you a lot here lately to drop the blind party loyalty because it don't help the situation only hurts it.

The reason Blunt is making a big fuss over the truth Squads is these people hold elected positions And their actions could be construed as they are acting in official capacity and not as an unofficial capacity!

Like i said earlier i do live in Missouri so i'll keep you guys updated if there are reports of Obama's Campaign actually doing this.

Also on a side note why this is being made into a big deal, Is because Who ever wins in Missouri historically wins the white house! And has Been the case since Missouri joined the union!

How very convenient for the rightwing leaning OP to post to us a thread sourced from a rightwing website of a rightwinger governor. This all is suppose to be "shocking" here? I mean its just as easy for me to go onto Democratic governor Richardsons website where he makes a statement that McCain is abusing powers and yet wouldnt that just sound politically fueled on the side of Gov Richardson and the Democratic party? This is no different....

There is no indication as to whether Obama is actually abusing law enforcement of any kind. The OP merely posted a thread stating Obama did this and that and then sourced this from the Republican governors OWN website. Is this how you source all your information from? I mean for pete sakes its a STATEMENT from the governor, it holds no grounds for evidence as to whether Obama is misusing law enforcement (I never knew the candidates had that kind of power
)

I mean its just a statement from the governor himself, on his website, which is Republican slanted... in election year where Missouri is one of the battle ground states... while McCain is getting negative coverage... This STINKS of partinsanship.

Now until somebody can provide evidence as to whether Obama himself is actually abusing the law enforcement of Missouri and that this statement has nothing to do with a bias politically fueled Republican governor from one of the battle ground states, this little accusation holds no truth to it. Just talk.

I mean for petes sakes... One statement from a Republican governor on one of the major battleground states of the general election... I mean if the OP intends to hold any credibility when posting these threads, I suggest he gets his sources from independent centrist outlets where there is actual sources of evidence, not just ONE statement with nothing else to offer.

WOOOOOHOOOOOOO Go Blunt!


This is by far the greatest thing I have ever seen this man say! I have been no where near a fan of Gov. Blunt but I am going to write him a letter for this thanking him. McCaskill being involved does not surprise me in the least. I believe that woman is the devil!

Now let's see what comes of it.

The arrogance of the right just astounds me.... I mean are we in highschool here or are we adults? This attitude never did this nation any good over the last 8years and it wont in the future to come.

If your a strong supporter of the Republican party then good for you.. but it pays to be a little more aware of the information you believe coming from your party.

Why are you going on about a totally unrelated topic to this thread? As I recall this read is about what the Republican governor said, not what happened in Missouri 4years ago. Its as if you have to add another story about the "lies of the left" to solidify the OPs thread.

If you want to discuss this matter, post another thread.


The only real scandal Blunt has been in is violating the open records law. he was accused of deleting emails But that was never proven. And the person that made the accusations had recently been fired by the governor.


This doesnt excuse the fact that this "statement" is politically fuels on the governors side. The evidence is sourced from the governors OWN website and its just a statement with NOTHING to show for it.


BH seems like I've been telling you a lot here lately to drop the blind party loyalty


Oh im sorry that sounds real hypocritical... if you want to talk about blind loyalty, how about agreeing with everything your president says, whether its a lie or just plain wrong.. all because his a Republican. How about blindly listening to this free market dribble coming from the right while our economy i crashing due to lack of regulation. How about blind loyalty to a party that uses FEAR to score political points.

Dont talk to us about "blind loyalty", and in addition, BH was a former Ron Paul supporter, never a democrat originally... get your facts straight before you go making assumptions over an individual purely for the fact they support the opposing candidate.


The reason Blunt is making a big fuss over the truth Squads is these people hold elected positions And their actions could be construed as they are acting in official capacity and not as an unofficial capacity!


The reason why blunt is making a big fuss is to score political points for the Republicans on one of the most important battle ground states in the general election... and that is what this is, just political tactics on the side of the Republican party, nothing else.


Like i said earlier i do live in Missouri so i'll keep you guys updated if there are reports of Obama's Campaign actually doing this.


Wonderful, maybe next time you can come up with some good sources of information and evidence from independent news outlets, not just some statement from the governor himself on his own website.

EXACTLY, your post only lowers the credibility of the OP.

1. This has nothing to do with Barack Obama abusing law enforcement of any kind, this is an independent group of supporters of Barack.

2. This is what this is, just a mere REQUEST from an independent group of citizens who support Barack Obama. No where does it indicate as to whether Obama is abusing any power let alone law enforement. This thread is misleading and the arguement from the right here is loosing credibility.

3. I believe in freedom of speech but really now in all honesty the LIES of this election has gone too far, if citizens want to create truth squads to keep the record straight, so be it. What is the issue here? The right cant spread LIES about opposing candidates like they always have during election time?

Thankyou for posting this Narnia, hopefully this thread will die soon like all the other derailing threads that serve only to distract the undecided from McCains blunders.

Im done here.

I don't know why you are thanking Narnia for a link that already appears in the original post in this thread.


Incidentally, where's your equally impassioned denouncement of these Truth Squads?

Yeah, I think everyone get's that it isn't Obama himself organizing these morons, but aren't you in the least bit offended by what these people are doing?

What? More like Blunt could go to court if hes not careful.

The only thing that appears to be happening in Missouri with Blunt is investigators trying to show you, in Blunts " Show me " state.

The investigator that was on Blunt was fired, and while the circumstances are not clear, as I started to look, it appeared that Blunt is trying to deflect alot of heat off himself.

Missouri has ethics laws in place for a reason. Their enforcement, should they be violated, should either be reason for a law change, or for a closer look as to why they were created in the first place.

When people get fired, investigating the Governor, that should raise some eye brows.


Jefferson City, MO — Fired U.S. Attorney Bud Cummins told the LA Times in a story today that he fears he was fired because we was investigating criminal charges against Missouri Gov. Matt Blunt concerning his awarding of lucrative motor vehicle fee offices.


Do a Google search on corrupt Missouri Governor, and see what turns up.
Not one investigation, but many. The only person that has to worry about an ethics investigation is the Governor of Missouri himself.

Peace

They will be reminding voters of the truth. They will respond immediately to any ads and statements that might violate Missouri ethics laws.

What is unconstitutional? If you're citing the first amendment, Defamation is an EXCEPTION to free speech.



(1) Defamation: Defamation consists of a publication of a statement of alleged fact which is false and which harms the reputation of another person.(1) Our right to freedom of expression is restricted when our expressions (whether a spoken slander or written libel) cause harm to the reputation of another person.


What is unconstitutional?

Not that Blunt's scandal is really relevant, but...

Suit Alleges Destruction of Emails



Filed in Jackson County Circuit Court, the suit names Blunt, three former or current top aides and the deputy Office of Administration commissioner, Richard AuBuchon.
....
The suit also contends that Blunt's chief of staff at the time, Ed Martin, ordered all staff members to make sure they were deleting e-mails. Martin and other top Blunt aides also are accused of orchestrating the destruction of the state's computer backup system for such e-mails.
...
The suit contends that the boxes were part of a "smear campaign'' by Blunt and his staff and accuses them of defamation of character.


Hmmm... Defamation, huh? Interesting.

Blunt sued, accused of plot to destroy public records and hide activities from the public



The suit, filed in Jackson County Circuit Court, describes schemes within the governor’s office to destroy public documents, to evade the state Sunshine law by sending text messages on personal Blackberrys and to fire a long-time state employee for political reasons.


Regardless of Blunt's smarminess, what the Truth Squad is supposedly doing is to address the defamation of Barack Obama. What part of that is unconstitutional, illegal or immoral?

What exactly is the problem? You all can express indignation, but if you can't articulate what exactly you are outraged about, I still don't get your position.

Part of the problem here is . . who gets to decide what is the truth ?


"They will be reminding voters that Barack Obama is a Christian who wants to cut taxes for anyone who makes less than $250,000 a year."


So, if I am saying that this is crap because the $42,000 figure is the accurate one, I will be threatened with jail.
Although yes, I will win in court after a lot of time and legal expense.

It was once told to me by a police officer while escorting me to jail, and while he knew I would win - - - "You can beat the rap, but you can't beat the ride, you are going downtown"

This is intimidation, pure and simple, and you Obamunists don't even care to fight against intimidation.

You should be ashamed of yourselves.

and btw, SG and others who have tried to deflect this because Gov. Blunt made a statement about it also - - - it has NOTHING to do with the governor. The other sources, and I can find many more if you need them, are quite independent of the governor.
Your deflection and attempted derailment is another shameful "shoot the messenger" tactic.

Intimidation of any American for exercising their constitutional rights should be fought by every one of us - rep. or dem. or independent.

Again - it is about INTIMIDATION - if you are for that, well, enough said.

There is only one truth. $42,000 is a lie. $250,000 is the truth. Where is the confusion?

Where did you read that people would be threatened with jail?



Although yes, I will win in court after a lot of time and legal expense.


Actually, no you wouldn't. You would be guilty of defamation.



This is intimidation, pure and simple,


WHAT is intimidation? What action will be taken? Please help me out here.

WHAT constitutional right is being stepped on?

I just saw your link on LiveLeak. The story says the prosecutors in Missouri are going to put pressure on anyone who releases anything the 'violates Missouri election ethic laws'. I am curious, why would disallowing anything that violates law be a bad thing? Is it because it is Obama's supporters doing it? Personally I think that this is a non-issue.
