The Obama administration told law enforcement authorities to go easy on Occupy Wall Street protesters, even though they were violating local laws, according to documents obtained by watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Emails from the General Services Administration show that the federal agency, acting on orders from the White House, told federal law enforcement authorities in Portland, Ore. not to enforce curfews on protesters camped out on federal property JudicialWatch.org obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act request lodged last year.

    Did it happen in other cities, also? I suspect it did, evidence just hasn't been found yet. I am sure this type of request to 'go easy' was NOT issued for any Tea Party rallies!

    Sorry but this post is way off the mark. Those of you who have been smitten by MSM and believe the lies and propaganda about OWS are making a huge mistake.

    Apparently you missed this ..

    Oh really what about the filth these OWS are doing like defecating on police cars and raping other members? What about blowing up bridges?
  • ConLibF... Theresa 2012/08/14 07:38:57
    ConLibFraud
    You a making a fool of yourself. That police car pooper has been proven to be taken a long time ago and not at any protest. Do you have any proof of your other allegations. No media hearsay - it will be ignored and you will be rendered useless.
  • Theresa ConLibF... 2012/08/14 19:32:41

    Really what about the blowing up of bridges? Was that hearsay too?

    Where is your proof. Lying media hearsay is not proof. Got any?
  • Theresa ConLibF... 2012/08/15 01:57:02

    You obviously do not read about the OWS members in Cleveland on trial for trying to blow up bridges?

    No! It`s all propaganda. I cannot believe you are down on the only ones who bravely go against the establishment based on lies and propaganda. It was the establishment plants that created all the trouble. Knowing your background, what I am hearing from you is fuzzy math.

    Obama has been a dictator since his first minute in office. Aiding and abetting his illegal relatives, ordering assassinations on American citizens, putting our troops "illegally and covertly" into eight different country, suing states that enforce immigration law, giving over one million work permits to illegal aliens, bailouts without a vote from the people, forced socialist healthcare that 70% of Americans don't want. It's never ending.

    To me, the right to protest is fundamental to freedom. What isn't fundamental is violence against peaceful protest. I think of these quotes for starters when I read this question.

    “I am for freedom of the press, and against all violations of the Constitution to silence by force and not by reason the complaints or criticisms, just or unjust, of our citizens against the conduct of their agents.” – Thomas Jefferson

    As long as our government is administered for the good of the people, and is regulated by their will; as long as it secures to us the rights of persons and of property, liberty of conscience and of the press, it will be worth defending.
    Andrew Jackson

    "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." JFK

    “The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.” ~Thomas Jefferson~

    "That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness." Declaration of Independence.

    There's something odd about this. I'm not doubting the docs, but why would Obama single out Portland OWS? There were thousands of people in much higher-profile places, and there's nothing known about WH interference there. There's either more we don't know about or this is some kind of spin.

    Until I know more, I'll take the high road and say the President of the U.S. wouldn't promote lawlessness. Civil protest is a long-standing valid expression of free speech.

    Also not to prosecute the Black Panthers and not enforce existing immigration laws. This POS has committed treasonous acts against America/Americans since 2008. Time to string him up.
