That’s one small victory for the American people, one giant step backwards into a fresh new pile of pooh for the White House. Obama’s email tattletale program closes up shop, as American outrage rallies for freedom of speech protections and says “No to the Obama “firstname.lastname@example.org” program.”
If you want to know what an awakened and politically intellectually active American population can do, the story below provides the proof. Several days back the Obama White House had the audacity to actually ask Americans to “turn people in” who may have voiced dissenting views on Obamacare. They were to forward any “fishy” emails to flag-at-whitehouse.gov.
The outrage within the average citizenry was instantaneous and huge. The reasoned voice of opposition has often been the only thing in American politics standing between the people and the removal of first amendment rights to freedom of speech. This was just such a moment. The plans the White House had to have people “turn in those who said anything fishy” about Obamacare smacked of totalitarianism, and hearkened back to the bizarre bright idea that Obama had on the campign trail last year to use Missouri state police as truth squads when he campaigned in the state to silence any dissenting voices.

Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement
JEFFERSON CITY – Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.
“St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.
“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.
“This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.
“Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts – not a free society.”
Obama and his White House Czars just do not seem to learn that every effort they make to convert a free speeking USA into “agree with Obama or be silenced” is just bringing him one day closer to impeachment. He is telling us daily, by his actions, by his directives, by his totalitarian ideas and schemes, that he wants a socailist America, and the American people will not stand for it. We did not storm thre shores of Normandy decades ago to have America come to this in 2009.
Now you really see the evidence. When people wake up, stand up, speak out, and shout out against suppression of free speech they can keep a regime like back on it’s heels. That’s exactly what the Missouri governor had to do last fall when he told Obama “no way” would he be allowed to commandeer Missouri state troopers to to use as political campaign “truth suads”.
I need to reiterate that if we do not watch this man Barack Obama, like a hawk, day and night, he will continually try to do these kinds of things to squelch and silence free speech. Everything in his background, his upbringing, the men who influenced him, even his pastor, reveals the influences which formed his present thinking about how to govern a nation.
We are watching you Barack Obama. And we will not stop watching you until you leave the White House and beyond. I consider you to be the most “freedom threatening” force of socialist intent to ever set foot in the White House. I was born here and my ancestors were born here, back down the Pennsylvania Dutch, German, English, Irish family trees to the 1600s, back down the Cherokee / Iroquois family tree for thousands of years. You are on my land, where my ancestors lived and died deep in antiquity. Tread lightly. We are all watching you.
