Was the Ferguson "Stand down" of National Guardsman a mid-American version of the "Stand Down" in Benghazi


Missouri's Lieutenant Governor  says that there is nothing else that explains the inaction of Missouri Governor over deploying the Missouri National Guard other than White House interference ---  White House confirms close contact by Obama's top adviser, Valerie Jarrett, and Missouri Governor on night of riots in Ferguson


Democrat Governor Nixon gives evasive and defensive non-answers to questions about the delay of deploying the National Guard in  Ferguson  ---  Following the GOP Benghazi playbook, Missouri' s Republican Lieutenant Governor wants to put questions to Governor Nixon under oath


White House coordinating response to "demonstrations" across the country


Republicans getting ready to question whether Democrats in office at any level can't protect us from foreign or domestic threats



"Missouri Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder, a Republican, is demanding that the state’s Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon offer a public explanation as to why he told the National Guard which he had previously mobilized to stand down in Ferguson, Missouri, on Monday night as the city burned in riots...." (See  "EXCLUSIVE–MO LT. GOV: OFFICIALS MUST EXPLAIN 'UNDER OATH' WHY NATIONAL GUARD STOOD BY AS FERGUSON BURNED" by Matthew Boyle, 11/25/14, Breitbart News  [http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/11/25/Exclusive-Missouri-s-Peter-Kinder-To-Jay-Nixon-On-National-Guard-Stand-Down-Order-Explain-Yourself-Governor]).  Soon after the events in Ferguson showed  that there was a non-presence of police and National Guardsmen  in  many areas, Rush Limbaugh and the rest of right wing media were all over the story of Washington pulling the strings to allow the riots to proceed and the rioters to run rampant for hours (See for example "DID OBAMA HALT NATIONAL GUARD IN FERGUSON? --  Rush Limbaugh: 'Somebody wanted this to happen' " by Joe Kovacs, 11/26/14, World Net Daily [http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/limbaugh-did-obama-halt-national-guard-in-ferguson/]).

According to reports, on Tuesday morning, Kinder told anchor Martha MacCallum of Fox News that the Missouri Governor, Jay Nixon, kept the National Guard in check as Ferguson burned at the hands of rioters.  Then Kinder questioned whether Governor Nxon did so in coordination with top officials from the Obama White House and /or the Holder Justice Department.

According to Breitbart News, "[a]t a Tuesday press conference in response to a question from Breitbart News’ Kerry Picket, Nixon said that Kinder’s questions were 'false and absurd' and that 'politics has nothing to do with what anyone up here is doing.'..."

When the  Lieutenant Governor was asked why he suspects it was the Obama administration that told Governor Nixon to have the National Guard stand down, he said: “there’s nothing else that explains this.”  He ten called for hearing to question Governor Nixon and other officials under oath about all of it.

LATER REPORTS INDICATE VALERIE JARRET WAS IN CLOSE CONTACT WITH GOVERNOR NIXON


President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett had been in close contact with Missouri Governor Jay Nixon as the chaotic situation unfolded while the National Guard stood by. According to the White House, Jarrett spoke with Nixon the first night of the protests as well as the morning after.  Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz confirmed  that  “Valerie [Jarrett] spoke to Governor Nixon both last night and this morning, and has been briefing the President on an ongoing basis since last night....  And in each of those conversations with Governor Nixon, Valerie has pledged to stay in close coordination with the Governor in making sure that he’s getting the support he needs from the federal government....” ( See "CONFIRMED: VALERIE JARRETT KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH GOV. NIXON DURING FERGUSON FIASCO" by Charlie Spiering, 11/26/14, Breitbart News [http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/11/26/Confirmed-Valerie-Jarrett-Keeping-Tabs-On-Gov-Nixon-In-Ferguson-Fiasco]).

That report  noted  that "Jarrett and Attorney General Eric Holder also spoke with civil rights leaders the first night of the protests, continuing their close coordination as the grand jury decision approached." And it was also revealed that but revealed that White House staff spoke with mayors across the country to coordinate a proper response to demonstrations across  the country.

More proof that a well armed citizen militia is necessary in every community for when the police and National Guard fall down on the job.

UPDATE & BACKFILL: THE " 'OATH KEEPERS' KEEPING FAITH" EDITION

YES, ARMED CITIZENS' MILITIAS ARE RISING UP BECAUSE OF THE RIOTS IN FERGUSON

"OATH KEEPERS" ARE GUARDING BUSINESSES AND PROPERTY IN FERGUSON MISSOURI, AND THEY ARE CALLING FOR MORE VOLUNTEERS TO ASSIST

OTHER BUSINESSMEN ARMED THEMSELVES AND SUCCESSFULLY PROTECTED THEIR OWN STRIP MALL -- " NOW THAT IS WHAT THE SECOND AMENDMENT WAS MADE FOR !"

According to a report in the St. Louis Post Dispatch, a former U.S. Marine stood guard, watching as protesters marched along on South Florissant Road in Ferguson, Missouri on Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014. The fromer Marine drove in from Nebraska, and he is a member of "Oath Keepers," an organization of former military members, who have been protecting Ferguson businesses (See "Oath Keepers Guaarding Ferguson Businesses" by Robert Cohen, 11/26/14, St. Louis Post Dispatch/ post-dispatch.com ( with photograph of "Oath Keeper" standing guard over business as demonstratrators march nearby) [news/multimedia/oath-keepers-guarding-ferguson-businesses/image_9ac2997b-db46-5244-a3f4-21ce5ad3c239.html]).

Because the St. Louis area Oath Keepers suspected that Governor Nixon would drop the ball, they put a call-out among to their membership early Monday morning, asking for volunteers, and got enough of a response to commit to protecting the property of four local small business owners (two Asian, one black, one white) in downtown Ferguson. Those shops are in the same strip mall; and the shop owners could not afford to hire security and several had tears in their eyes as they thanked the Oath Keepers team for offering to help for free. They couldn’t believe someone would be so kind as to volunteer without pay, to protect them (See "Oath Keepers Guarding Businesses in Ferguson, Missouri: Calling on Volunteers to Assist, 11/25/14, Oath Keepers Website [http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2014/11/25/oath-keepers-guarding-businesses-in-ferguson-missouri-calling-on-volunteers-to-assist/]).

The St. Louis area Oath Keepers are getting additional requests for help from other Ferguson business owners and if they get enough volunteers to guard additional businesses in the days ahead, they say they will.
St. Louis area Oath Keepers member Sam Andrews is helping to coordinate and vet the prospective volunteers. Sam has requested that if you qualify and are willing, please grab your gear and start rolling toward Ferguson, and call Sam while on your way. Time is of the essence, and he needs you there ASAP. Contact him at: Sam Andrews -- 314-369-7850 -- tieroneweapons@att.net

Another group of armed citizens defended their own property (See "Businessmen Armed With AR-15 Rifles Saved Ferguson Strip Mall From Protester Looting" by Warner Todd Huston, 11/25/14, Liberty News [http://www.libertynews.com/2014/11/businessmen-armed-with-ar-15-rifles-saved-ferguson-strip-mall-from-protester-looting/]). According to that report, "...A group of business owners in Ferguson saved their strip mall shops from being looted and burned by standing guard outside their shops armed with AR-15 semi-automatic rifles–the same sort of guns liberals falsely claim are 'assault weapons.' *** The business owners formed their little armed security team after some of the shops were vandalized in August during the first series of riots in the troubled St. Louis suburb. *** The business owners were not about to let this happen again....

BACKFILL: THE "LET'S ADDRESS THE ROOT CAUSES OF THESE CRIMES IN FERGUSON" EDITION

DID "MICHAEL BROWN'S FAMILY" GIVE THE SIGNAL TO KICK OFF THE RIOTING, ARSON AND OTHER MAYHEM IN FERGUSON, MISSOURI ?

WITH OBVIOUS EVIDENCE OF INCITEMENT TO RIOT AND EVEN SEDITION, WILL ANY OF THE LAWFUL AUTHORITIES ARREST AND CHARGE MICHAEL BROWN'S STEP-FATHER MICHAEL HEAD ?

According to various reports, "Videos that were widely circulated on Tuesday showed Brown's mother, Lesley McSpadden, standing atop a car and breaking down as the announcement of the grand jury decision blares over the stereo. *** Her husband, Brown's stepfather, comforts her, then begins angrily yelling "Burn this bitch down!" to a crowd gathered around him...." (See for example "Stars and Stripes" by Jim Salter & Jim Suhr, 11/26/14, Stars and Stripes [http://www.stripes.com/news/us/guard-reinforcements-contain-damage-in-ferguson-1.316082]).

CNN's coverage included actual video footage of Michael Brown's mother and step-father Louis Head that had been released earlier by the NY Times. The text on the CNN blog included this: "Michael Brown's stepfather consoled the dead teen's distraught mother after Monday's controversial grand jury announcement and then turned to the crowd of demonstrators, saying, "Burn this motherf---er down" and "Burn this bitch down," according to a New York Times video. *** The comments by Brown's stepfather, Louis Head, came shortly before an eruption of rage by some protesters over the decision not to indict police Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. *** A row of businesses on West Florissant Avenue, a major thoroughfare in the St. Louis suburb, was engulfed in flames Monday night. Police cars and vehicles at a nearby dealership were turned into fireballs. There were so many blazes that firefighters couldn't reach every one...."

ANOTHER CRIMINAL, MICHAEL BROWN'S STEPFATHER URGED ARSON

As Fox News Radio put it, "Michael Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, an ex-con who is married to Brown’s mother, Leslie McSpadden urged Ferguson protesters to “burn this bitch down” Tuesday night. *** After consoling a weeping McSpadden, the 38-year-old Head–who was standing atop a platform in the middle of the agitated crowd of several hundred protesters–began screaming “Burn this bitch down!” He did this at least ten times, and at one point yelled for a microphone so that he could broadcast his message beyond the range of his unamplified voice…" ( See "Michael Brown’s Stepfather: ‘Burn This Bitch Down’" Alan.com/ Colmes Quarters, 11/25/14, Fox News Radio/ Colmes Corner [http://radio.foxnews.com/2014/11/25/michael-browns-stepfather-burn-this-bitch-down/]).

Will these obvious crimes by a close member of the "Brown Family" against the good order and society in Ferguson, Missouri be properly addressed in due course?
