College Republicans Deemed Security Threat, Refused Entrance to Obama’s Campus Speech

Editor’s Note: This article has been modified from its original version to reflect that six students, not 10, were rejected from entering the speech, and that the students did not wait in line, but were headed toward the speech when turned around by security.

WARRENSBURG – Six College Republicans were dubbed a security threat and refused admittance to President Barack Obama’s speech at the University of Central Missouri on Wednesday.

Despite the fact that the students had tickets to the event, security personnel turned them away from to the recreation center where Obama gave a speech on economic policy, telling the group it wasn’t about their politics but the president’s safety, State Treasurer of the College Republicans Courtney Scott told The College Fix.

The students, some of whom donned Tea Party T-Shirts and others who wore patriotic or Republican-inspired clothing, had protested the president earlier in the day on campus, but had put away their signs and said they were ready to simply listen to Obama when security shut them down.

The students were headed to the speech when they were turned around by Obama’s security detail.

“It just didn’t make any sense,” Scott told The Fix. “A lot of us traveled several hours to watch the speech. We were very disappointed not to be able to attend.”

The small group of College Republicans were confused as to why such extreme security precautions were directed at them – but not at the 2,500 other audience members who were granted admission to the event, Scott said.

The speech, the start of Obama’s national tour to tout his latest plan to revive the sluggish national economy, drew a crowd to the university’s recreation center, creating a crowded, stuffy and stifling environment, some observers said.

The intense heat of the day, coupled with the late arrival of Obama, prompted some audience members to suffer heat exhaustion – a few even fainted. Plenty of people left the venue early, prior to Obama’s speech, generating seats to be filled regardless of whether the students had tickets.

The students’ protest earlier in the day was a peaceful one, consisting of holding political speech signs and talking to passersby throughout the morning, Scott said. They were asked to protest at the “public speech area” on campus, not anywhere near the rec center. They were not allowed within eyesight or earshot of people who were waiting in line.

The Mizzou Republicans were among about sixty protesters, half of whom were college students, who had voiced concern Wednesday over Obama’s economic policies in the wake of the country’s ongoing recession.

Some of the signs called for capitalism, others illustrated discontent with Missouri’s 16 percent unemployment rate among college student youth, and the increasing share of national debt students are saddled with year by year.

      Doesn’t this violate their civil rights to be banned for their political beliefs?? Where is Uncle Ted, Where is Palin??

      • sniffles09

        under Obama, conservatives have no rights, just ask the IRS.

        • Hard Boiled

          yup, thats why Republicans will die 1 by 1 under Ocare, which will be run by the IRS too!

  • Bertibus

    Not only does Obama fear anyone who isn’t an a$$ licking sycophant, he sees them as physical threats.

    I’m sure the New York Times will have this on their front page tomorrow /sarc

  • bob

    I bet they were all white too….that is what you get when you have a racist in the white house.

    • websearcher

      Of course they were white. They were tea baggers. What else color do you expect them to be?

      • fossie1

        like I said your a ASSHAT

        • Theo

          it’s YOU’RE not YOUR

          bet you graduated at the bottom of your class

          • JoeTexan

            At least he graduated, unlike most students in liberal-controlled big cities.

          • Theo

            really? proof please

      • stoobeedoo1970

        Great point. You wouldn’t expect a black person to stand up for smaller government and lower taxes, would you? Stereotype much, mr liberal? As for your bagger comment – I embrace being a bagger over a beggar. Us “baggers” can take a little name calling (unlike our liberal victim friends) and we can stand on our own two feet and don’t need to beg for a government to make our lives “fair and just”. ‘You keep begging for your government to make everything ok for you and see how happy you are once government becomes the pet snake that eats you.
        Free speech zones have been going on since the 60’s and 70’s Vietnam protests and the 1988 Dem Convention in Atlanta.

        The only persons I know who are into teabagging are liberals. I see them hanging out with you down at the gay bar. You like to tea bag with them don’t you asshat?

        • Theo

          do you ask all your friends if they’re into teabaggin? bet that makes for some wonderful conversations

          • Guest

            You replied to the wrong person. It’s websearcher you should be replying to. Your teabagging buddy

        • websearcher

          So you admit you hang out at gay bars, eh? Now you know why we call you T-baggers. You’re welcome.

          • Ren

            No, I see you coming out of the gay bar from across the road. What are you doing in there? T bagging?

  • M. Report

    ‘It wasn’t about their politics but the president’s safety.’

    Well, yes, yes it was; If Obama suffered a mental meltdown
    due to a conservative cry of ‘you Lie’ during his speech,
    the damage to his psyche might be permanent.


      Yes; this is the result of cowardice, guilt and paranoia-perfect storm happening in Obama’s head. Like a terrorist would advertise on his T-shirt “I’m wearing explosives”.

      • Theo

        these are conservatives we’re discussing; no one ever said that they were very bright; they might just advertise if they were wearing explosives

        • websearcher

          Well, they were advertising that they were Tea-baggers. Same thing!

          • CHINATIME

            Time both you and Theo crawled back under your bridges, back to Troll Town.

          • Theo

            telling the truth makes one a troll?

          • Ren

            No, talking s**t makes you a troll and all leftists talk s**t.

          • Guest

            You know all about tea bagging don’t you asshat? I see you spending a lot of time down at the gay bar.

          • websearcher

            Looks like we found ourself a honest T-bagger. One who admits he visits gay bar!
            Good for you, T-bagger. It is about time you guys start admitting what everyone knows about you.

          • Ren

            Is that why we see you coming out of the gay bar asshat? Are you T bagging in there?

          • websearcher

            Actually Ren – you don’t know who I am. So you wouldn’t recognize me in a bar, gay or otherwise.

            But it is interesting that you keep harping on visiting gay bars. Trying desperately to come out of the closet, eh? That your way of advertising to your family that you are gay? My sympathies, Ren. Hope everything works out, bud. I really do.

          • Ren

            You come of as a homosexual so I treat you as a homosexual.

          • Ren


          • Ren

            Piss off

          • websearcher

            Awww…did I hurt your widdle widdle feelings? My bad. Why don’t you ask your gay lover to kiss and make it better? Or, are you still looking for Mr. Goodbar in all the gay bars you are frequenting? Good luck, bud. Let us know how it turned out, ok?

        • JoeTexan

          Good thing we had those ignorant, know-nothing right-wingers around in the late 1700s. Those gun-owning, God-fearing idiots gave us the greatest country in the history of the world, until the libtards ruined it.

          • Guest

            You got that one right.

    • websearcher

      Actually, a Conservative did call out – “You Lie”. It was a member of Congress Joe Wilson who shouted when President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress.
      And no, Obama did not suffer a mental meltdown. Of course Republicans did suffer a meltdown in terms of self-respect but then, what else is new?

      • Ren

        How long have you been living in this fantasyland of yours?

        • websearcher

          So you are saying, it didn’t happen? Joe Wilson did not call out Liar to the President?

          You know what is worse than being a T-bagger? Being an ignorant one. Two strikes against you, bub.

          • Ren

            I’m not interested in tea bagging. That’s something you liberals like to participate in.

          • Ren

            Can’t answer the question can you?

          • websearcher

            I just did, bud. You are just too dumb to get it. Learn to read. Good luck.

          • Ren

            No, you rambled off some sort of nonsense. You are too stupid to answer my question.

          • Ren

  • motoguzzi

    Why is there not a huge uproar over this? The current administration persists in treating any who disagree with them as terrorists and criminals.
    This is why the NSA scandal is so important, a government that can classify any opponent as a terrorist and has the ability to spy on every phone call, e-mail and movement they make. Are we living in the USA or a Kalfka novel?

    • Bedbug

      It’s Kafka.

      • websearcher

        Kafka, my ass. Did you guys even know how to read? Here…from the article above….

        “The students, some of whom donned Tea Party T-Shirts and others who wore patriotic or Republican-inspired clothing…”

        If the shoe was reversed, do you really think that people who wore a Che Guevara shirt or dressed in Code Pink outfit, they would have been allowed to a George Bush or Cheney meeting? Of course not, they would have been barred and so were these Republican clowns from an Obama meeting.

        Get it now?

        • Dennis Carr

          Wrong again as always… Republicans don’t bar people at public meetings……Only in your mind are you right

          • websearcher

            You should learn to use Google before making those dumb comments. If you had, you would have seen a full length article on precisely that – GW Bush banning people from his meetings when he was President. And no, the article wasn’t from an lib rag but from a Conservative one. – The American Conservative to be specific.

            Free-Speech Zone
            The administration quarantines dissent.
            The American Conservative Dated: 12/15/2003

            When Bush came to the Pittsburgh area on Labor Day 2002, 65-year-old retired steel worker Bill Neel was there to greet him with a sign proclaiming, “The Bush family must surely love the poor, they made so many of us.” The local police, at the Secret Service’s behest, set up a “designated free-speech zone” on a baseball field surrounded by a chain-link fence a third of a mile from the location of Bush’s speech. The police cleared the path of the motorcade of all critical signs, though folks with pro-Bush signs were permitted to line the president’s path. Neel refused to go to the designated area and was arrested for disorderly conduct; the police also confiscated his sign. Neel later commented, “As far as I’m concerned, the whole country is a free speech zone. If the Bush administration has its way, anyone who criticizes them will be out of sight and out of mind.”

            Talk about police state. I am sure they didn’t show that in Fox News.

            So, you were outraged THEN, but not now, because it’s only wrong when YOUR party is wronged. Got it.

          • Bruceb64

            Read your own “article” the person was arrested because HE became disorderly and refused to Leave! So, HE not the Republicans caused the disturbance. The “Students” Left calmly and DID NOT Cause a Ruckus!!!

            So you believe everything you read on the internet, especially Google. LMAO!! Schmidt is so far up Obama’s butt that if Obama stopped walking Schmidt would break his neck. Google is the king of misinformation and just below Google is Snopes. LMAO

          • websearcher

            So when you don’t like what you read, it means they are lying? Mighty original, dude.

            So tell me, dude, how do you know that the article posted here is not full of lies? Remember, you can’t believe everything you read on the internet.

            It is so easy to debate a right-winger. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

            This troll is definitely a legend in his own mind.

          • obamadoesnotcare

            How do you know knotjammin2 is a dude? You are contributing to the lies posted on the net. Therefor, everything else you post is also a lie, troll. If you move over to huffpost, cnn, msnbc or nbc, everything you say will be considered factual, but they will probably not pay you to post.

          • Dale Nye

            No, when you find that what those sites said was not the truth, that is when you know they have lied. You do not research far enough. You are a typical liberal. You try and tear everyone else down to build yourself up. I feel sorry for you.

          • websearcher

            This from a guy who is responding to an item tearing the President down!

            Wasn’t a black guy, it was a white Negro. You would have know that if you wasn’t such a libtard.

          • websearcher

            And that’s what bothers you, eh? It was ok when Bush did it but when a “Negro” does it, it gets you.

            Yup. No wonder we call you T-baggers as racist. Get it now? Good.

          • termite

            Race has nothing to do with this event. He’s the man in charge of America, and he should be held to the same standards as any other leader of America. Since you did bring up the issue of race so quickly (and seemingly out of the blue), is that perhaps the sole reason why you voted for him? That’s pretty racist.

          • Finrod Felagund

          • Dale Nye

            You have already lost this debate. The name calling proves it. You have nothing but that left in your liberal arsenal. Maybe you should learn to distinguish between truth and misinformation while websearching.

          • Kevyster

            Obama’s NOT all Black but Herman Cain is and you acted like a KKK lynch mob over those bogus sexual assault claims against Mr. Cain. Websearch is a racist liberal hypocrite . Btw, why do you hate Gays becuase you liberals love always using hompholic slurs

          • websearcher

            Actually bub, Cain was running in the Republican primary. Not the general election. If you guys so desperately wanted a “full” Black guy to win, you would have nominated him. “Librul” media or no Liberal media. You didn’t nominate him but somehow the Libs are responsible?

            Your own ex-GOP head Michael Steel is on record as saying that the Whites in the Republican party are afraid of the Black man. Look it up.

            You guys are a joke.

          • Steven

            Me gets the feeling that you have no idea what “acting like a KKK lynch mob” means if you think it’s sort of like what Mr. Cain faced.

          • David W. Hunter

            Do you think that the college republicans had tried to push their way into the meeting, they would not have been arrested?

          • Theo

            I have no idea why the security people made the decision they made. I wasn’t there and I can’t find any place where the security people said why they made the decisions they did.

          • Steven

            That’s because they didn’t. They locked the building down like clockwork according to standard security procedures, and that’s the end of the actual story. Everything else regarding how the group was considered a “security threat” is fanciful fabrications and would only be true to the extent that granting them entry despite the lock down would constitute a breach of security procedures.

          • Mackinac52

            And everyone knows all foreign exchange students are terrorists and security risks. Come back down to earth Theo – Obama didn’t want them in the building so they were denied!!

          If they were illegal they’d be escorted in

          • Morgan

            Stop imagining we live in a utopia where we dont look at outward appearances. It is still the #1 most effective way of profiling, its not 100% accurate, but its close. With that aside, it is well known that the Obama administration has begun targeting its “opposition”….including conservatives, christians, even veterans…. And it shouldnt be a frickin surprise anymore that Obama associates with Muslims most closely and frequently… So bonafide conservatives are viewed as a security threat by him, because they threaten his entire little game of scharades… Wise up and quit being a little yuppy

          • Morgan

            And im not saying that outward appearance profiling is the “right thing to do”….Every person that spouts off “I dont judge people by how they look” are unaware that they do indeed judge. We are humans. Its our nature. Its not necessarily right, but we all do it.

            “Reading context is a challenge for you I see.”

            Perhaps, but you didn’t ‘see’ it in this exchange.

            “I blame our edicational system.”

            A fellow victim, I see.

            Yes, we are all by products of liberal education here is California.

          • Theo

            so in other words, you’re guessing that someone is illegal or someone is a Muslim or someone is whatever; you have little or no evidence to back up your guess but it’s okay because they fit your preconceived notion of how someone looks

            and what proof do you have that Obama associated with “Muslims most closely and frequently”? Put the kool aid down and think for yourself instead of parroting the same tired right wing talking points.

          • Irish78623

            Theo, by what means did the Security detail at the event decide that they were a threat? By the way the looked and by what the wore, Assuming that because they were conservative they must be a security risk, is that no profiling? Obama likes to surround himself with all ‘yes men’ who will applaud everything he says. It’s easier to convince the crowd that what you are saying is ‘wonderful” if there is no one there to disagree.

          • Theo

            I have no clue. I wasn’t there. The only side of the story we have is from the kids who were denied admission. They never identified who denied them admission and it doesn’t seem as if they asked why.

          • Steven

            They were denied admission because when they presented their tickets for admission the building was already on lock down, which is what Secret Service does about 20 minutes before they expect the President to arrive.

          • Theo

            thank you

          • Steven

            Secret Service did NOT “decide that they were a threat.” They locked the building down at 3:40 pm, and anybody who hadn’t presented a valid ticket before then was denied admission. But Secret Service did not deny admission to any one on the basis of an individualized security concern.

          • Christopher Salazar

            Your asking us to think when your the sheep, bahhhhh bahhhh bahhh bahhhhhhh. Did you understand that. I was speaking sheep.

          • rhetorical1

            You must only watch the lies presented on the main stream media. bho has been inviting radical muslims into the white house since he was (cough) elected. Learn Theo, go to ActforAmerica.com and start getting an education.

          • According to the Egyptians Obama is a terrorist…

            What Egyptians do in Egypt is none of our business… America has enough of it’s own problems at home…

            The Egyptians have done more in the last two months to curtail Islamic terrorism than these hypocrites in Washington have done in two decades.

            Obama is very butt hurt by this.

          • Jim

            So Theo, how did the Security folks at the speech know that they were a threat to Obama? Just by looking at them?

          • Steven

            No, they didn’t. Secret Service did not determine that they were a security threat. That part of this story is a fabrication with no basis in fact.

          • Dale Nye

            Why are you hung up on that statement by Kathy that was not in the article? The topic here is not illegals. Some of us are not so easily distracted. If you want to believe that no one makes any kind of judgments about people by how they are dressed, then you live in la la land. Right or wrong, we all do it to some extent or another. You do it as well no matter how disciplined you may believe you are. Now, can we get back on topic?

            Actually, yes. More to the point by looking at the Tea-Party/Republican paraphernalia that they chose to wear.

            You guys should seriously learn to read. If you had, you would have read the article and won’t have to ask such dumb questions.Next.

          OK troller, how did they know that the people that DID attend the BS seminar were American citizens and not a risk? Because they had tickets? The rejected students also had tickets, so they were previously checked out. Hence, they were able to be isolated and stopped from attending. Get over what is legal and not legal, your messiah has.

          • Steven

            No, that’s not that how it works. I’ve attended both official and campaign events, and years ago I did advance work for the White House for official visits. A ticket is not a pre-screen. Nobody gets “checked out” ahead of time. The screening takes place at the event.

            The rejected students had tickets, but they presented them for entry after the building had already been locked down in accordance with standard security procedures.

          • obamadoesnotcare

            If your avatar is your identity, I respect your answer. I have also attended White House events and in order to GET my tickets I had to personally appear to pick them up. My bad, if I thought this was part of the screening process. And yes, I was also screened at the White House entrance.

      Obama did this in Springfield, IL when he announced his intention to run in 2007. Only Obama signs were allowed, he even had the Springfield police department SWAT team kept away, only allowing his own secret service security detail in any sniper or overwatch positions. It’s the liberal way, silence anyone with a different view point. This shouldn’t surprise anyone, unless you’re just waking up to the tyranny imposed by this regime called American government.( Bush did it too with the war protestors.) Wake up, get involved, go to your local government meetings. The only way to change things is from the bottom up. Vote out all incumbents, don’t create or allow career politicians, at any level (This means Mayors and city councilmen, too.)

        There’s a difference between a campaign event and an official visit by the President. Campaign workers routinely screen attendees at campaign events — on both sides.

            I watched the clip from the Seattle TV station about the training exercise and it didn’t support all of the comments after the clip:

            Taken on its own, the KOMO 4 News report below out of Seattle paints a stark and frightening picture of police battling “angry parents” in a simulated shooting at a school.

            This is supported by the clip and what the police officer interviewed in the clip said

            This is however is not supported by the clip:

            The practice of police training to take
            on everything from homeschoolers to patriots and constitutionalists – “rightwing extremists” in government parlance – is anything but a rarity. Such exercises are now a prominent feature of the expanding police state.

            Are there any independent sources that can verify these claims?

            As for the US becoming a “expanding police state”, I don’t think that’s true either. These programs have been in place for years and no one seemed to mind them in the past so why the huge uproar now? Seems a bit of a double standard

          • Theo

            I don’t see how Obama, or any president for that matter, could take control over the economy or the government as a whole. There are very few governmental secrets any more. Wikileaks has shown that there is always someone who is able and willing to expose these secrets.

            The fact that we know about Executive Order 13603 and people have speculated about it shows that it would be difficult for Obama to use it to take more power or become some sort of dictator.

            Dictators come about in mainly two ways. They swoop in and seize power like a coup. Dictators like Hitler and Stalin gradually took power. They were able to marginalize their opponents and sway public opinion in their favor. If Obama is trying to be a Hitler or a Stalin, he’s failing miserably. We have a 24/7 news cycle and countless individual websites out there that report on the smallest things.

            This country is pretty much divided down the middle. I don’t see any big political shift until the next census when legislative seats are drawn.

            Dictatorships are always a one party state. For Hitler and Germany a good example, it was the NAZI’s. NAZI = Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter-Partei = National Socialist German Workers’ Party, Hitler was the leader of it. It was the Communists who called the NAZI’s right wing. The NAZI’s were in the right wing of Socialism. National not International socialists. Obama is a socialist.
            ALL of Hitlers dictatorial powers come from ONE bill. The Enabling Act, (Ermächtigungsgesetz in German) was passed by the Reichstag (Germany’s parliament) on March 23, 1933. It gave Hitler the power to amend The Weimar Republic Constitution at will. What do you think Obama is doing with the US Constitution? Executive Orders anyone???

            Obama is not a socialist. Executive orders have been around for decades. Obama is not the first nor will he be the last president to use them. He cannot use them to amend the US Constitution.

            Wikileaks is still publishing documents. The last time was in April. So much for being on the run.

            The federal government is conducting surveillance and will continue to conduct surveillance until Congress does something about it. In case you weren’t aware, the House of Representatives just defeated an amendment that would curb the powers of the NSA. Both Obama and the Republican House leadership were opposed to the amendment. That says to me that the Republicans are just as guilty, for lack of a better word, as Obama is for these surveillance programs.

            Hitler slowly took power in Germany. He didn’t do in one fell swoop. There’s also no real evidence that he nationalized German companies either. During World War 2, companies focused on supplying the military with goods, but this happened in the US and other countries as well. Not sure if you can call Churchill a socialist since British companies did the same thing.

            Other parties in Germany called the Nazis right wing. They banned unions which is hardly an act of a left wing government.

            So what does that tell you? That we have a one party State ! Some NAZI’s label themselves as Democrat and run for election. Other NAZI’s label themselves as Republications and run for election. Now you have the veneer of Freedom of Choice, political theater. Pick your favorite NAZI. And now oddly enough, you have a NAZI elected to government.
            Once there he works with the old NAZI’s, the other new NAZI’s, the multi labeled R,D NAZI’S and they all think alike and work together as good NAZI’s should. So you yourself now equally blame the Democrat labeled NAZI’s and the Republican labeled NAZI’s. Good, SO DO I. Their in the Judiciary, the Executive branch, and now run the ministry of propaganda, the so-called news media, the 4th estate. Its STILL called a Dictatorship, Theo, a one party State.

            Quote — There’s also no real evidence that he nationalized German companies either —
            In totalitarian regimes why nationalize? The company owner was looked on as a shop steward who carried out the orders from Berlin. He stayed the “owner” if he did it well. If he failed he was shot as a subversive and a new shop steward was
            installed. Is that Nationalizing or a free market economy?
            Quote — During World War 2, companies focused on
            supplying the military with goods, but this happened in the US and other countries as well.—
            IG Farben was a German chemical industry conglomerate. IG Farben was the largest chemical company in the world. IG Farben held the patent for the pesticide Zyklon B which was the gas used in Holocaust gas chambers. IG Farben owned 42.2 percent of the shares of Degesch (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Schädlingsbekämpfung) which manufactured Zyklon B. A war good. The German stock market stayed active under Hitler. Government insiders who knew about up coming big orders for more Zyklon B for the gas chambers bought shares and made a fortune. So “capitalism” continued under Hitler?
            The Unions didn’t die, they were NAZIfied and taken over by NAZI’s. Totalitarians do that sort of thing.

          • Theo

            No president can use an executive order to change the US Constitution.

            I almost agree with you in regards to the one party state idea-almost though. In many areas, there are really no differences between the Democrats and Republicans but there are plenty of areas where those differences do make a huge differences. Most of the people who say there are no differences are generally on the left and complain about the Democrats’ stance on issues such as government regulation and getting into bed with big business.

            Unions were banned under Hitler. He replaced them with the “German Labor Front.” These were not unions. They were not empowered to advocate for workers. Strikes were banned. Hitler used these groups to bribe more or less the workers. They would get some freebies but ended up making less after the unions were banned.

            The industrial leaders didn’t stand up to Hitler because they knew a good thing when they saw it. Hitler was promising a new, stronger Germany than had been left by their defeat in WW1. They knew he was going to be good for business. If he was a true socialist, he would have nationalized the companies like the Communists did in Russia and other countries. He didn’t. He allowed them pretty much free reign.

            IF Hitler had won, there is no evidence that he would have nationalized any industry. He probably would have put in place laws that would have influenced the companies’ behavior but as for total control, no.

            As for a free market economy, such a creature doesn’t exist anywhere that I can think of. A German economy under a Nazi government would have more restrictions on it than say most Western economies but still wouldn’t be anywhere near a socialist economy based on the interaction of German corporations and the Nazis before and during WW2.

          • dixiesuzan

            Theo – Thank ya’ll for your reply.
            True, the Unions became Natzified and the veneer of Unions were left. In totalitarian governments workers have no say, BUT the veneer of the old days is left as a cover for the dramatic shifts. Industrial leaders joined Hitler because they thought they could control him. They couldn’t, and so they too fell under totalitarian Hitler.
            Now, can Obama alter Constitutional America by decrees or his minions do so under his cover, by suspending law or not executiong law?
            Yes he can and is, but of course un-Constitutionally.
            Good Example, the DREAM ACT.
            Obama didn’t issue an executive order to enact the Dream
            Act, however it is by his direction Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton issued a June 17 memo declaring ICE agents and officials with “guidance on the exercise of prosecutorial discretion.” The fundamental Constitutional Presidential duty is: US Constitution; Article II,
            Section 3 —he shall take Care that the Laws be FAITHFULLY EXECUTED — Constitutionally there is NO PROSECUTORIAL DISCRETION available to the executive branch. US Constitution; Article II, Section 3 has never been amended. It is the same now as in 1789 when written. The President with NO PROSECUTORIAL DISCRETION powers cannot command any other executive officer to use prosecutorial discretion when it does not exist in the Presidental office.
            — James Kent, Vol 1 1858 – Commentaries on American law (9th Edition) — Lecture XIII, Of The Presidency; pages 293 & 294
            Quote — The object of this department is the execution of the law; …. But when laws are duly made and promulgated, they only remain to be executed. NO DISCRETION is submitted to the executive officer. It is not for him to deliberate and decide upon the wisdom or expediency of the
            law. What has been once declared to be law, under all the cautious forms of deliberation prescribed by the constitution, ought to receive prompt obedience. —- Those words are as true today as when written by Kent in the 1st edition of 1826.
            So what has happened with the DREAM ACT??? It doesn’t exist! There was a BILL once before Congress called the DREAM BILL. Congress voted it NO. It became the DEAD DREAM BILL. If it had passed (enacted by Congress) it would have no …longer been called the DREAM BILL, it would have been called the DREAM ACT because Congress had enacted it. But the DREAM BILL failed to pass and became the DEAD DREAM BILL.
            Obama wanted the DREAM BILL. He extracted some pages of the DEAD DREAM BILL and had ICE announced by decree that this was now US law, suddenly called the DREAM ACT (which never got enacted). This is violation of oath of office, but it is more as well. It is subversion of the powers of Congressional vote and Executive usurpation of the legislative power of Congress to legislate by decree.
            And so the Dream Act ukase claimed powers of the Presidency to protect illegal aliens from the Federal criminal statutes which required their deportation by suspending them. This is called obstruction of justice and also is a felony. 8 U.S.C. § 1324 : US Code – Section 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens. BUT, illegal aliens wishing to obtain protection from criminal law had to fork up $465/head to buy Obama protection. This is called extortion. 18 USC § 872 – Extortion by officers or employees of the United States.
            Those who did not buy protection got deported. 1,700,000 illegal aliens have their chance to buy into this Executive racketeering operation. Federal employees are commanded to collect the extortion sums though it is a command to commit a felony. 18 USC § 880 – Receiving the proceeds of extortion. It is also usurpation of the Congressional power of the purse since there is no Congressional bill originating in the House to cllect the money.
            Obama’s request for illegal aliens to bribe him (or ICE if you prefer) for protection is a open solicitation for a bribe by the way. 18 U.S.C. § 201 : US Code – Section 201: Bribery of public officials and witnesses. Obama decreed that those who paid the extortion sum were to get Work Permits. Federal employees are to hand them out. BUT the illegal This of course is a felony. 8 U.S.C. § 1324 : US Code – Section 1324 – Bringing in and harboring certain aliens.alien has to first prove by documentation that they are in the USA contrary to law then the Federal employee aids them with a Work Permit. I could go on but won’t.
            So has Obama by non-existent Presidential discretion, by usurpation of Congressional powers, seizure of the power of the purse, and suspension of US Federal criminal law in any way altered Constitutional government in America???
            To alter and suspend Constitutional government is called overthrow of government under US Law.

          • Theo

            Either Hitler banned unions or he didn’t-leaving the “veneer” is not the same as allowing unions to operate in the same manner as they had before Hitler came to power.

            I couldn’t find anything that suggests any business leader thought he could control Hitler. You’re confusing that with the politicians who named him chancellor.

            Your example of the DREAM Act did not alter the Constitution. The Constitution has not been re-written and nothing has been added in regards to the DREAM Act. Your description of the administration’s actions would lead someone to believe that Obama had not amended the Constitution but committed unconstitutional acts.

          • dixiesuzan

            Theo – Thank ya’ll for your reply.
            The industrialists aided Hitler. No doubt about that. Even US ones. They funded him.

            Ah, if you have a written Constitution and the nation doesn’t follow it anymore because of a series of un-Constitutional felony acts done by the executive branch has the “Constitution” been amended? The document remains without formal textual alteration of its lex scripta, though by tacit legalization the Constitutional is totally replaced in practice by a huge assortment of executive branch ukases.
            Henry C. Black 1910 – Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd edition)
            Definition – AMEND – To improve; to make better by change or modification.
            From a totalitarian viewpoint, the de facto Constitution is amended. It is done by acts and decrees. Adolph Hitler had the power under the Enabling Act to “amend” the Weimar Constitution at will. It was de facto without formal written textual alteration.
            For it is the de facto Constitution which controls the deeds and acts and plans of men, written Constitutional text being either in harmony or discord. The US Constitution de facto is Obama and the executive department and its many agencies within which make laws by decree, regulation, policy etc.
            This is called an un-Constitutional government when in disjoint with the written textual Constitution. It is arbitrary government.
            Quote—The accumulation of all powers, legislative,
            executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.—- Federalist Number 47 by James Madison.
            Obama has established a tyranny.
            The fundamental Constitutional Presidential duty: US Constitution; Article II, Section 3 —he shall take Care that the Laws be FAITHFULLY EXECUTED–
            To deviate from this and claim powers to amend, suspend, add to etc laws has for hundreds and hundreds of years been illegal under English and American law. It is seizure of the Legislative power.
            James II, the last of the Stuarts upon the English throne, lost his throne for doing exactly that. His actions resulted in the English Bill of Rights, the idea of which compeled the addition of a Bill of Rights being added to the US Constitution.
            Because of James II, after the Glorious Revolution of 1688 where he abdicated, Parliament passed the English Bill of Rights of 1689 whuich was equally American colonial law.
            The key first provisions are:
            (1) That the pretended power of suspending of laws or the
            execution of laws by regal authority without the consent of Parliament is illegal.
            (2) That the pretended power of dispensing with laws or
            the execution of laws as it hath been assumed and exercised of late is illegal.—-
            This was already English law in 1689. This was simply a strict recording to seek control of the king. All English monarchs have to sign acceptance to the English Bill of Rights.
            Obama is simply another James II action figure in presidential garb.

          • Theo

            There is no “de facto” constitution. Obama is not King James. If you want to go back in US History, you may want to think about Andrew Jackson and his supposed comments in Worcester v. Georgia. He said that if the Supreme Court wanted to enforce their decision in the matter, they could do it because he wasn’t going to. I can’t think of any other president making comments like that. Obama certainly hasn’t. I believe that the government has acted fairly quickly in response to Supreme Court ruling.

            The federal government has the power to make rules and regulations I believe that it is the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 that gives the executive branch the power to do so. Also, when new executive departments, such as the Department of Education or Department of Energy, the law creating them gives the department the power to create rules within the scope of its area.

            These rules, just like anything enacted by the government, are subject to judicial review. For example, the EPA has been sued by various groups over the years in regards to their policies. Either the courts find that the rules are constitutional and are within the scope of the agency’s area or they’re not. It’s pretty simple.

            What laws aren’t Obama “faithfully executing”?

            Quote — There is no “de facto” constitution — of course there is. De facto, is a Latin expression that means “concerning fact.” In law, it often means “in practice but not necessarily ordained by law” or “in practice or actuality, but not officially established.”

            So Obama puts into practice a “Constitution” of his personal will. It is not the written one. He amends not the written one. Thus, a de facto Constitution.

            Oh, dear Theo, let the scales drop from thine eyes.
            US Constitution; Article I, Section 1 – ALL LEGISLATIVE
            POWERS HEREIN GRANTED shall be vested in a Congress of the United States—-
            All legislative power possible is NOT granted, only
            expressed specific topics of legislative power is granted. All these granted legislative powers are vested in Congress. NO legislative powers are vested in the Executive. NO
            legislative powers are vested in the Courts.

            Rather simple. Can the president create under the written Constitution agencies which can make laws on their own initiative and set up courts on their own initiative to enforce the laws they decree, and enforce these laws they decree with their own policing powers all contrary to the bill of rights?? Can Congress grant that power by Bill passed in Congress assembled to the Executive branch? Constitutionally no. Extra Constitutionally they can do anything they can get away with if they are a set of lawless organized gangsters without virtue to do what they wish to do, when they wish to do it, and to whom they wish it to be done. Tyrannys are always unbounded.
            For example, the IRS has makes its own regulations with the force of law.US Constitution; Article I, Section 1 – ALL LEGISLATIVE POWERS HEREIN GRANTED shall be vested in a Congress of the United States—- Congress cannot delegate the legislative power to the Executive branch who then may give it to an agency to legislate as it sees fit. The IRS has its own court system.
            US Constitution, Article III, section 1 – The judicial Power
            of the United States, shall be vested in ONE SUPREME COURT, and in such INFERIOR COURTS AS THE CONGRESS MAY FROM TIME TO TIME ORDAIN AND ESTABLISH. —- The IRS established and ordained this court system, not Congress, and the IRS gave itself its jurisdiction, not Congress, and its own rules of judicial review, if one may grossly corrupt that phrase to use here in this instance. The IRS has the power to arrest and imprison. How did Congress delegate that authority? It didn’t.
            Amendment 6 – In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.—

            Is the IRS proceeding a criminal trial? Yes for the power to imprison exists for crime. So where is the jury?? Gone. Where is the swift and speedy public trial? Gone. Where are the witnesses? Gone. Where is the compulsory process to obtain them? Gone. So you see, dear Theo, that is called a Constituion de facto. A tyranny in which the judiciary is a part of the tyranny is not judicial review. It is the veneer of judicial review by rewarded petty unter tyrants acting for il Duce.
            Quate — What laws aren’t Obama “faithfully executing”?–
            You really must be joking with that one. But lets pick one of the more recent, for one is sufficient to prove violation of oath. How about a little over a week ago?
            — Obama Signs Executive Order, Sends $500 million to
            Terrorists — NYC Daily / Sat, Jul 27th, 2013
            Quote — Citing “national security interests,” President
            Obama effectively sidestepped Congress by signing an executive order which enables him to send $500 million to fund Muslim terrorists in the West Bank. —
            — Under Sequester, U.S. Giving Islamists $500 Million —
            Investors Business daily /
            US Constitution; Article I, Section 9—No Money shall be
            drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law—
            1/2 billion dollars is drawn from the treasury without Congressional appropriation. It is drawn from the treasury by decree. The news story politely says “sidestepped Congress”. Yes, by plunder of the US Treasury withot legislative authority and in violation of the US Constitution, and Obama’s sworn oath to support the US Constitution. There are a lot more, but that is most recent.

          • hiernonymous

            Okay, we’ll ignore for the moment that the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank does not comprise terrorists, and we’ll look briefly at all your Constitutional posturing about money drawn from the treasury without Congressional appropriation.

            At some point in your cutting, pasting, and emoting, you should acquaint yourself with the process about which you’re editorializing. The Executive isn’t appropriating anything.

            If you’ll acquaint yourself with S3241, the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2013 , you’ll find the following language:

            limitation on assistance for the palestinian authority

            Sec. 7040. (a) Prohibition of Funds- None of the funds appropriated by this Act to carry out the provisions of chapter 4 of part II of the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 may be obligated or expended with respect to providing funds to the Palestinian Authority.

            (b) Waiver- The prohibition included in subsection (a) shall not apply if the President certifies in writing to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the President pro tempore of the Senate, and the Committees on Appropriations that waiving such prohibition is important to the national security interests of the United States.

            In short, the legislation passed by Congress said “You can’t spend this money unless the President certifies that it’s necessary for national security.” The President just certified that it’s necessary for national security.

            Constitutional crisis averted.

          • Theo

            De facto- Exercising power or serving a function without being legally or officially established http://www.thefreedictionary.com/de+facto

            The law, which I believe you’re referring to, states “no funds available to any United States Government department or agency … may be obligated or expended with respect to providing funds to the Palestinian Authority.”

            Does Obama have the authority to circumvent the law under powers granted to the executive branch? His government seems to think so If Obama is breaking the law and doesn’t have the power to circumvent the law, then the Congressional leadership has the duty to sue and stop him. Have they done that yet? What have they done to stop him? What are they planning on doing? How hard would it be to get a judge to sign an injunction stopping the aid from going through? If this was announced on Friday, the Congressional leadership could have easily filed a motion with the federal courts by yesterday or today for an injunction.

            I can’t seem to even find a story quoting any member of Congress condemning this. One would think the usual suspects would be the first one in front of the microphones going after the administration on this.

            I’m not sure what you mean by the IRS court unless you mean the US Tax Court. Congress passed the law creating it in 1924. The Supreme Court later ruled that the court was not a court per se in 1929 but an administrative board. Congress later passed legislation making it a full fledged court under Article 1 of the Constitution.

          • dixiesuzan

            Theo – Thank ya’ll for your reply.
            Yes, de facto is “in practice or actuality, but not officially
            established”, or for practical purposes actual, but which is illegal and/or illegitimate. Its contrasted with de jure, meaning rightful, legitimate, just, constitutional.
            This comes from — Henry C. Black 1910 – Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd edition) —
            Today we have a de facto Constitution. The de jure Constitution is the written legal legitimate one. It is now usurpation/corruption of law unto illegitimacy.
            There is a general misconception that just because a statute is passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law it therefore constitutes a law. If it is Congress then the assumption is that it is the law of the land. The de jure U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land. Any statute, to be valid, must be in agreement with the de jure US Constitution. It is impossible for both the de jure Constitution and a legislated Congressional law violating the de jure US Constitution to be valid at the same time. One must prevail over the other.
            Quote—An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no
            rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is, in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.— U.S. Supreme Court, Norton v. Shelby County, 118 US 425 (1886)

            And so if Congress legislates, it matters not if it is a de facto statute, but not a de jure Constitutional one. When one arrives in a tyranny, there is collusion by all departments of government. Hence you mention a number of Congressional statutes. First question is always are they de jure Constitutional?

            Quote — The Supreme Court later ruled that the court was not a court per se in 1929 but an administrative board. Congress later passed legislation making it a full fledged court under Article 1 of the Constitution. —

            But Congress cannot exclude jury trials in a criminal law proceeding by bill. IRS court procedings can be criminal trials without a jury. That would make the bill by Congress un-Constitutional prima facie. There is obviously more, but that one item negates the statute. It is not law, it is corruption of law and the de jure Constitution. The statute bears only color of law, and falls under U.S. Supreme Court, Norton v. Shelby County decision quoted above.

            Obviously, in a tyranny, if Obama violates the de jure Constitution and Congress is in collusion, there would be no outcry. No outcry is not a measure of whether Obama acts are Constitutional or not. Under Adolf Hitler there was no public outcry, because the outcry was only at the pockmarked wall of execution.

            The United States is at war. At the time of 9/11/2001 Congress passed the 2001 – Authorization for Use of Military Force Act — on 9/14/2001.
            (a) IN GENERAL. — That the President is authorized to use all necessary and appropriate force against those nations, organizations, or persons he determines planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred of September 11,2001, or harbored such organizations or persons, in order to prevent future acts of international terrorism against the United State by such nations, organizations or persons.—

            Notice use of military force against a nation is a act of war. This document is a declaration of war, and it was declared al-Qaeda was the responsible party for 9/11/2001 attack.
            The USA is at war with al-Qaeda and all who harbor that organization. The 2001 – Authorization for Use of Military Force Act is still inforce and not rescinded. US military forces have been used against al-Qaeda over the years.

            Consider the following news items.
            — Obama to move forward with plan to arm Syrian
            rebels — By Brianna Kielar, Jessica Yellin and Tom Cohen, CNN / Wed July 24, 2013
            Quote — Washington (CNN) — Reluctant approval from
            Congress for providing military support to Syrian rebels allows the Obama administration to move forward with plans first announced almost six weeks ago. —

            Except that the Syrian rebels are known to be al-Qaeda to a very great extent. To supply arms to al-Qaeda Syrian rebels is to supply arms to enemies in war of the United States. Congress gave reluctant approval to arms supply to enemies in war of the United States. This is treason under the de jure US Constitution.
            US Constitution, Article III, Section 3 – Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.—-
            So Obama abnd Congress have adopted a public open policy of treason. These folks are so arrogant they don’t care. They too are lawyers, but they are mad drunk with power. No press complaint is heard. The propaganda ministry discusses only how not de jure Constitutionality.
            The same can be said of the funding to Hamas. Hamas is in league with and harbors al-Qaeda. To fund Hamas is to also fund al-Qaeda. More treason.
            I will quit. This posting is far too long.

          • Theo

            Congress and Obama have only committed treason in the eyes of some extremist which you have shown yourself to be.

            We do not have a de facto Constitution. I’m not sure where you’re pulling your talking points but yet again, they seem to be extremist. I’m surprised you haven’t pulled out the tired New World Order card yet. Maybe you have and I just didn’t pay attention.

            The Syrian rebels are not some homogeneous group. Anyone who says that is being dishonest either out of ignorance or just lying.

            If you and yours believe that Congress has committed treason, they get off your butts and do something about it. There are enough of your types in Congress to make a stink.

            Anyway, this is my last response to you. I hope that you eventually think for yourself and stop falling for all the lies and half-truths the right wingers push in the attempt to discredit the President. Obama is far from perfect but those opposing him are not doing this country any good.

          • dixiesuzan

            Theo – Thank ya’ll for your reply.
            Quote — We do not have a de facto Constitution. —
            Or all current statutes and actions of the Federal government are in harmony with the written Constitution.
            Quote — I’m not sure where you’re pulling your talking points but yet again, they seem to be extremist.—
            Theo, I am getting my “talking points” out of truth of legal understanding. They are more than “talking points”. They are Constitutional law and both lex scripta and lex non scripta. If the conclusions become “extremist” then the facts result in that. Conclusions which do not conform to your emotional attachments apparently become extremist. So, treason is an extreme event, yet if provable it is still treason. Theo, I am thinking for myself here. I have taken a great deal of time studying law cases and Constitutional history. This is what I end up with.
            Obama is far from perfect is a correct assessment. How far from perfect? Un-Constitutionally imperfect? Lawlessly, determinedly, dedicatedly, and even violently imperfect, contrary to virtue, statutory law and contrary to immutable, irrevocable, eternal justice imperfect? The man is a virtueless tyrant.

            Joseph Story, Associate Justice U.S. Supreme Court,
            writing of the US Republic and republics in general.
            Quote from Concluding Remarks —The future, is that, which may well awaken the most earnest solicitude, both for the virtue and the permanence of our Republic. The fate of other republics, their rise, their progress, their decline, and their fall, are written but too legibly on the pages of history, if, indeed, they were not continually before us in the startling fragments of their ruins. Those republics have perished ; and have perished by their own hands. Prosperity has enervated them ; corruption has debased them ; and a venal populace has consummated their destruction. The people, alternately the prey of military chieftains at home, and of ambitious
            invaders from abroad, have been some times cheated out of their liberties by servile demagogues, sometimes betrayed into a surrender of them by false patriots; and sometimes they have willingly sold them for a price to the despot, who has bidden highest for his victims. They have disregarded the warning voice of their best statesmen ; and have persecuted and driven from office their truest friends. They have listened to the councils of fawning sycophants, or base calumniators of the wise and the good. They have reverenced power more in its high abuses and summary movements, than in its calm and constitutional energy, when it dispensed blessings with an unseen, but a liberal hand. They have surrendered to faction, what belonged to the common interests and common rights of the country. Patronage and party, the triumph of an artful popular leader, and the discontents of a day, have outweighed, in their view,
            all solid principles and institutions of government. Such are the melancholy lessons of the past history of republics down to our own.— Joseph Story, Associate Justice U.S. Supreme Court; 1877; Familiar exposition of the Constitution of the US; Chapter 38; § 455, pages 267 & 268

      If they had showed up at the time when most of the people did that lined up to go through the airport-style security line, they would have been able to enter. You don’t show up to the airport 20 minutes before your flight and expect to get through security in time to board. Any event that is secured by the Secret Service is closed for a lockdown well before any President speaks.

  • We need to know a name and an organization, who specifically decided to not honor their tickets? If it was a member of campus security, that’s one problem. If it was the secret service, that’s an entirely different problem. This article generates outrage but doesn’t give us any actions we can take to fix the problem.

    Um, ok. So something the article touches on (but tragically, doesn’t elaborate on) is that the students didn’t actually have tickets for the event.

    That seems like kind of an important detail to ignore. If they didn’t have tickets to the event, can they really complain that they weren’t let in? Yes, Secret Service probably shouldn’t have kicked them out that far, but this just doesn’t seem like a huge deal.

      • Destry

        It actually seems to be discrimination and profiling. Neither of which is necessarily illegal in this circumstance. It all depends on how this speech event by Obama was presented and who sponsored it. If it was a University of Central Missouri sponsored event, it most likely is an illegal form of discrimination. If it was sponsored by the DNC or some other private political group that paid a fee to rent the forum where Obama gave the speech then it’s to the sponsor’s discretion on who to permit or allow in.

  • Hell-Cat

    Obama is a coward.

  • Here are my simple questions. If they have gotten tickets already, odds are they are “in the system”. Will these students from now on be listed as security risks when they have to go through a Homeland Security TSA screening? If they are too much of a risk to be admitted to a speech, will they be banned from travelling? Will these students be branded for life in all government systems?

    These questions are asked tongue in cheek, but in all reality what we have seen with the IRS, TSA, and NSA, I would be worried if I was their parents. And if we live in a country of due process, can they request in writing the reason and all records pertaining for their refusal to the speech? And if not, why not?

            Now you see why no one takes your fake outrage seriously?

          • David W. Hunter

            Flip the coin. Bush did something bad, so now it must be OK for Obama to do the same thing? Wasn’t the whole point of Obama’s campaign to bring in a new transparent government that answered to the citizenry? Thats the problem with the zealouts on both side of the fence. It’s OK to violate civil liberties, as long as the victims are on the other side.

            Bush was wrong to do it. So is Obama.

          • snookum2

            As long as you are stupid enough to keep citing this article, I guess I will have to cite “the rest of the story.”
            “Is the administration seeking to stifle domestic criticism? Absolutely. Is it carrying out a war on dissent? Probably not—yet. But the trend lines in federal attacks on freedom of speech should raise grave concerns to anyone worried about the First Amendment or about how a future liberal Democratic president such as Hillary Clinton might exploit the precedents that Bush is setting.”

          • websearcher

            Stupid to cite an article from a Conservative magazine? Maybe next time I will cite a Liberal source. That should make you happy.

            Anyway, what was your point to include the above? You do get that it supports my point, right? You can’t really blame Obama when the trend was started by Bush. And yes, I fully expect Hillary Clinton (if she is the future) to do the same.
            As I wrote in one of the response…what goes around….comes around.

            If you guys were as outraged as you pretend to be with Obama then where was your outrage when your darling Bush did it? At that time you guys applauded it, no? Well…one more time…what goes around…

        Threat to his life?
        Oh, I see, if I am not a Democrat, then I am a threat to the president’s life, even though I have faithfully served our country under whatever president held the office during all those years that i served as a Marine and as a police officer. You are as useless to me as the racists Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and the murderous members of the Black Panther Goon Squads who only attack when one’s back is turned..
        Remember this, you Demolition Party expert, originally it was the Tea Party who fought died and freed us from our bondage under King George and they never sent one single hit squad or black ops to do in the king.
        For your information, the only ones I know of that fight without honor call themselves Democrats now days

          I don’t remember George Washington or any colonial leader calling themselves members of the Tea Party; I believe they just called themselves Americans

            Actually I wouldn’t know for sure Theo, unlike you, I wasn’t there!} Kidding!
            Actually from the documents I’ve seen, they referred to each other as ‘American Colonists’ or just “Colonists” and even “Colonials”, That is until the nationalist movement finally took hold. However the gutsy group that pulled off the “Tea Party” fiasco is certainly representative in nature of those who were brazen enough to take on the King and his Royal British Redcoats.
            I am still impressed how simple farmers and villagers initially responded to the following incursions with what little fire power and training they initially possessed.
            Today we have King Obama and his chosen Czars to contend with and his forces want our weapons to somehow conveniently disappear.

          • snookum2

            once again, the last paragraph of the article you cite. “Is the administration seeking to stifle domestic criticism? Absolutely. Is it carrying out a war on dissent? Probably not—yet. But the trend lines in federal attacks on freedom of speech should raise grave concerns to anyone worried about the First Amendment or about how a future liberal Democratic president such as Hillary Clinton might exploit the precedents that Bush is setting.” And yes, the prescedent set is now in full exploitation mode.

          • websearcher

            And one more time….what goes around….

            Where were all of you fake conservatives when Bush was stifling domestic criticism? When all criticism – however mild – was labelled unpatriotic?

            What you sow….you shall reap. And yes, the precedent had been set in the Bush era. Enjoy!

        Yes, because so many Tea Party members have attempted to kill the President! At least in the alternate liberal la-la-land universe in which you are permanently stuck.

        Websearcher you sound like an imbecile, look up the word .. it will fit you. Taxed Enough Already T.E.A. – members of a group of people that are opposed to large government and are tired of footing the bill . A tea-bagger, as you put it, is a completely different thing as you should know, judging from your rehtoric , you surely are on the receiving end many times. any political party that denies our constitutional rights to free speech is wrong, be they right wingers or left wingers, your failure to understand this is the problem…. I personally dont agree with many of your statements, but I will vigorously defend you right to say them instead of advocating “banning” you…. as much as I think you are an insane ibecile subsidized by the government and/or the parents that pay for the house that is over the basement you reside and “websearch” porn in

        • websearcher

          Yawn. I will ask you the same question I have asked others here. Where was your outrage when Bush jailed dissenters? If you answered, you were ok with that but not ok when a Black man does it….guess what? It makes you a T-Bagger. Get it? Good.

    “It just didn’t make any sense,” Scott told The Fix.

    Of course it made sense. Like the old-style Soviet Leadership, the Obama Team controls who attends, who sits where, who gets on TV. There is no freedom of expression or right to assemble anymore. Obama and Holder and their gang of anti-American revolutionaries all believe the Constitution of the United States is an old, flat, out-dated, irrelevant document written by aging, racist, white men who are not meant to be respected but rejected by this new, fundamentally changed America Obama is pushing down our throats.

          Wow, Agent Orange. I remember going to Vietnam Veteran meetings in New York in 1978 when Vets were trying to get people interested; it was astounding.

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–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 of 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. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of The United States of America is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

    Is this a learning institution? Are we not to feed the minds of our young people with diversity?

If these guys were dressed ‘normally’ and had followed the proper rules to get tickets, then where did security legally get the information to bar these students?

I went to the police station three times trying to get a report, or at least an explanation, and they treat me like if I were the attacker. The police station is in Harlem. Tonight, I went for the last time and they threw me out and when I was leaving told me “Trayvon”.

    Shouldn’t come as a surprise given what transpired with the IRS, targeting conservative groups, and the NSA monitoring cell phones, emails, text messages, and on and on.

    Now, now, remember that we are still in only Year 5 Obama. The Great Transformation is still in progress. The students refused admittance were obvious mentally disordered Transformation Deviants. Our Obama did state in June of 2008 in Philadelphia Quote— If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. — Now realize these Transformation Deviant Republicans were not shot by Obama supporters. Love, and compassion was shown instead. They simply weren’t permitted to attend Our Obama’s speech.

    Recall that if you see or hear a Deviant who opposes ObamaCare, even in ‘casual conversation,’ the White House wants to know about it. Report them. Heres the The White House Blog website.
    Quote—If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to [email protected].—

    Most of the Transformation Deviants excluded from Our Obama’s speech were probably already on the lists. Many may well be dangerous Religious Extremists. Possibly even Evangelical Christians.

    The Rebulican Transformation Deviants were threatening to Our Obama’s safety. All terrorists of course do that. BUT did Our Obama seek to have them arrested? NO.
    The National Defense Authorization Act is legalized law. The Great Writ of Habeous Corpus is voidable upon the command of the President of the United States and the Sixth Amendment right to legal counsel is also revocable at his will. No warrant is needed for the arrest and incarceration. There is no time limit and there is no Judicial oversight. But did Our Obama invoke this against even Rebublican Transormation Deviants?? No, an act of grace and love was extended to them. They were permitted to leave with only heavily detrimental listings of threatening Our Obama placed on their personal dossiers and potential later arrest when it comes time to Secure the Homeland.

      I read your other posts too, you are like Hilda of the Socialist Nazi American Party.

      • dixiesuzan

        ericpedersen – Thank ya’ll for your reply.
        Is ya’ll attempted to compliment me? I never met Hilda. I really never heard of the Socialist Nazi American Party. I don’t know nuthin bout em.
        I have heard Our Obama wishes to bring Socialism on a National scale to American workers. National Socialism, not International Socialism. Right wing Socialism so to speak.
        Anyway, did ya’ll like my postings? If ya’ll liked em don’t be modest, shucks, feel free let me know.
        Now a course, if ya’ll didn’t like my postings, ya’ll has the duty to report me to the Department of Homeland Security. They require that these days.. Heres the 9 page manual ya’ll is supposed to have on hand and needs to download if ya’ll has lost yours..

        Page 2 of 9; Note on bottom of the page— Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups,
        movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.—-

        I am a very suspicious person, hate oriented by the manual definition above, and an individual opposed to abortion, in support of the 10th amendment to the Constitution, and am also opposed to millions a illegal aliens invadin the USA contrary to law and swarmin the place to the gills.

        When ya’ll reports me please tell em Dixie says Hi ! I been reported on so much that I figures I’ll be first in the DHS Counter-Terrorism sweep that gits picked up. It would be a social faux pas to at least not say Hi ya know.

    question is, should they have left their conservative t-shirts at home?
    Would that have limited the potential for them to do anything
    whatsoever to possibly disrupt the speech? If they were intent on doing
    something wrong, what they wore would have made no difference. This is
    really wrong in my eyes. These kids may never get the opportunity to be
    at a Presidential speech ever again regardless who holds the office. And
    Yes, yes, yes, I know GW did similar things and that was equally wrong
    in my eyes. With the amount of security prevalent at any political
    rally, let alone for the President of the United States, these college
    kids were no physical threat to the President or anyone else. They had
    proven earlier in the day that they were capable of peaceful protest and
    they had tickets to the event.

  • steveyuhas

    Isn’t the reason more likely to be that Chris Christie added Libertarians to his enemies list and now that the bromance between Christie and Obama is flourishing (I hope Reggie doesn’t get jealous), they turned people away that Christie would have. Further, conservatives and Republicans are not like liberals. I’ve given many college speeches and the only people who throw things are leftists (and they miss). College Republicans are too polite & well bred to do such things.

  • Veritas177

    Obama lives by the straw-man argument. Informed audience members ARE a threat to his political and intellectual security.

  • So the commies would not let the fascists in? Didn’t this already happen in Europe in the 1920s and 30s? Or was it the other way around? lol

  • Attended Event

    University of Central Missouri
    Official UCM Statement Regarding Admittance to President Obama Appearance:
    The University of Central Missouri has thoroughly reviewed claims of individuals being inappropriately denied admission to President Barack Obama’s speech on campus July 24, 2013. These reports are unfounded. No one who presented a ticket was turned away prior to all doors being locked in accordance with Secret Service procedures. We have confirmed everyone who presented a ticket prior to that time was admitted.

    • bob

      Of course they are going to say that…gimme a break. They are trying to prevent legal action.

  • oldsalt6585

    AWWWW….OBUMMA’S POSSE is afraid of REPUBICANS? COWARDS…..from the top to the bottom!

  • madjayhawk

    Most all political events screen people attending the event. Those will message t-shirts, caps, and signs are not allowed in unless they remove them. If they allowed them then the stands would be filled with Coca-Cola t-shirts or ads for the other party or candidate. That is what everyone would see on TV. It is understandable when you think about it. I was not allowed into a Republican event with what I thought was a mild message t-shirt but when I turned it inside out they let me in and I am a card paying donating Republican.

  • raynebc

    Obama won’t tolerate defiance.

    • ericpedersen

      He’s going to have to deal with it because he has alienated and divided half this country.

  • bahndon

    Republicans, Conservatives, Christians, NRA members, Veterans, Orthodox Jews, and Constitutionalists, are all a threat to the liberal agenda therefore a threat to Obama.

    No uproar? The liberal Obama loving media, that’s why. Within a few years if not sooner it will be illegal to say anything against our government. Like in the far east countries and Germany under Hitler.

  • GabbySummers

    Why is there no uproar? Because the Last Refuge is the only news outlet to report on this story and linked it to here. If Barack looks bad, the media will not cover it.

  • Rocketman21

    Where is our media. Have we willing turned into a communist state????

  • Guess the whole “Freedom of Speach” thing doesn’t apply when Obama doesn’t feel like it?

    This people is a clear and present danger. These students are Americans and denied by this, this,…… who the heck is this man looking THING in our White House? ( and yes I meant to use the word thing!) This THING in the White House is a leader that shows such contempt for the actual country and it’s people, and most of all constitution he presides for. His wife tells others that living there is like a really nice prison. WHO says that!

  • Night_Train_to_Mundo_Fine

    A simple question which is conveniently not asked in this piece is: Were they the only ones turned away?

    They said they were in the overflow viewing room. They were there all by themselves? They were the only overflow? I highly doubt it. But it’s the Truthiness that counts, asking simple journalistic questions is beside the point, so we’ll never know. ODS.

  • Night_Train_to_Mundo_Fine

    Were they the only ones turned away? Of course the article doesn’t say. They viewed from the overfill viewing room. Were they the only ones there?

    But why bother asking simple questions?

  • ericpedersen

    Obama and his cabinet are all phony. They need to be expelled and taught a lesson like King George.

  • physicsnut

    hey I think i got this figured out.
    Huma is going to get divorced from Anthony.
    Hillary is going to get divorced from Bill.
    Then Hillary and Huma are going to get married. to each other.
    And Bill and Anthony are going to get married. to each other.

    They will roll dice to figure out who gets whose body
    parts with various sex change operations. Then it will
    be revealed that James Carville really is a space alien after all, and just the advance guard, and that Bill, Hillary, Huma and Anthony are all Pod People from outer space.
    They will all live in the white house and it will be like
    that movie Independence Day where the beam comes down from the flying saucer – ( or maybe more like ‘morons from outer space’ ).

    They did not let in the College Republicans because of wearing those
    special glasses to detect Pod People !

    Of course, I remember very clearly when G.W.Bush had a campaign event in Tampa, and all people who were wearing Democratic clothing or carrying signs, were directed to the “protest areas” a mile away from the event. IMO, no one should be denied entrance to an event, assuming they’ve followed proper protocol, have tickets, and have arrived on time. This president is often heckled by protesters at events.

  • Tim Woods

    How quickly we forget that the Republicans did the same thing while Bush was in power. Events like Town Hall meetings have turned into little more than pep rallies for their respective candidates. At least in this case, the Campus Republicans were not arrested while Tea Party representatives arrested individuals who dare question their policies.

    Was there any anger over this? Read the comments from many before me. They attack Obama and try to use the NSA thinking that they are the root of the problem. They aren’t. What makes me more offended are the supposed soldiers who post on here where it’s clear that they probably never served a day in the armed forces or if they were, they failed our country now which is even more offensive.

    Remember, the Patriot Act was first created out of fearmongering by Bush and his cronies lying to the American people that we need to be monitored. It may not be a good law and I agree that it should be repealed, but given the comments of the people on here, I am surprised that more individuals aren’t being questioned.

    It’s time that we focus our anger where it belongs. Time for us to realize that allowing potentially seditious (or at the very least, troll-like) behavior doesn’t solve anything. We need to stop this madness and vote out the Tea Party. They have destroyed the Republican party and its ideals replacing it with a fascist, extreme corporatist view that will hurt us all in the long run.

    Wake up people – anyone who is against me is against their own self interests. End of story.
