I just can’t stand the thought that our readers might think that the Missouri Governor Jay Nixon is some kind of bumbling incompetent nincompoop. CERTAINLY NOT! Now I do grant you that those who have heard this clip below might be given to that impression.
But that is not the case. Let’s just look at a few things. There is the point put out by Missouri First, a citizen lobbying group that stated when Gov. Jay called out the National Guard prior to the riots that he did so illegally.
But that shouldn’t be shocking if you understand some backstory. Don’t you love backstory? You just get a much better appreciation for the puzzle pieces. I think you will agree, Gov. Jay is not just the mere bumbling idiot he appears to be.
Lets just step into the way back machine, to oh, say a couple years ago, to what Missourians call the “DOR scandal”. In May 2009, Missouri becomes one of the 14 States to ban REAL ID implementation as part of the federal REAL ID Act opt-out provision – signed into law by Governor Jay Nixon.But then information came to light that now exposed that the anti-REAL ID State Statute was immediately ignored and circumvented by Department of Revenue (DOR). We know this, because in 2010 DHS Secretary J-Nap sent a letter to Gov. Jay thanking him for his state’s compliance with the REAL ID act. What did that mean for Missourians? It means their private data, that was never suppose to leave the state was sent to MorphoTrustUSA, a company with a spotty record for keeping data secure. It also meant where before the DOR took your photo and you waited 20-30 minutes for it, depending on how busy that particular office was, they now took a biometric photo of you and sent your info to MorphoTrustUSA, who then kept it in a database. Your new driver’s license or CCW card (Missouri Concealed Carry holders can have their endorsement on either a driver’s license or a state non-driver’s ID) will have a RFID chip embedded in it. This makes it handy for tracking the person. One by one Department of Motor Vehicle offices were being changed over to use the new biometric cameras. And the taxpayer funded old cameras were either being destroyed or turned over to MorphoTrustUSA. So, did taxpayers have to pay for the new biometric equipment? Wellllll, nooooo. Because Gov. Jay took money for the new equipment from DHS. Gov. Jay is really good at selling out different groups of people for his thirty pieces of silver. He also sold out Missouri’s school children to common core, but that’s another story. Of course the DOR under Gov. Jay initially lied to the legislature when they began to investigate. At first they denied taking money, then they said they used the few million dollars to buy hole punches and routers, and other office equipment. Yeahhh, right. It finally came out though. A bit more about Oracle & MorphoTrustUSA from The Missouri Family Network.
Missouri DOR implements two private contracts it had acquired to facilitate the plans of Missouri’s REAL ID “comparable” system. One contract is with the Oracle group, contracted to build and maintain the platforms for a database system to store, search, and share, scanned source documents of all Missouri driver and non-driver licensees, and CCW endorsed citizens. The second contract is with MorphoTrust USA (headquartered in New Jersey with production facilities in Atlanta, GA. (MorphoTrust is a SAFRAN Company based out of Paris, France whose top CEO is a Muslim Imam.)
The ever eloquent Gov. Jay had a helpful minion in this task. Jackie Bemboom. You can go to The Missouri Family Network web site for a recap of this fiasco and read the section on Jackie Bemboom. She broke the law. She broke the law that Gov. Jay signed, and yet, shock and astonishment, she is still drawing a government paycheck! Try that where you work and get back to me on how it works out for you. So you can tell Gov. Jay was VERY displeased with his minion!
So, what else did Gov. Jay do? Well, he also had the DOR turn over a list of the entire concealed carry holder data base to the Social Security administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Better know as the BATFE. Yes indeedy, Gov. Jay gave a list of gun owners, the kind that tend to be sheepdogs to the Fast & Furious Gang. Of course he lied about it. People that have committed no crime, have been turned over to the ATF.
It was sent by the Missouri Highway Patrol, obviously not “Oathkeepers”. Would you like to know how they sent it? On an unencrypted disc, in an Excel file, with a password in the letter sent WITH the disc, through the US mail. Twice, at least they did this.
This interview with State Senator Kurt Schaefer is well worth listening to when he appeared on the Dana show.
So back to Gov. Jay, in case you don’t know it, he’s a BIG time barry, er, barak, er, whatever his name is this week, fan.
Remember Obama’s “The Police acted stupidly” when they were going to arrest Prof. Gates? Or inserting himself into the Trayvon Martin shooting “If I had a son”? He speaks without finding out the facts, and when he does, he seems to side with the wrong side. Here’s Gov. Jay doing his best barry, er bara, never mind, obama impression. Don’t just listen to the nice-ey nice first part. Realize he thinks the thug was taken from the family and we need to confront racism. And calls for a “vigorous prosecution” in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Huh? His sympathy is certainly not with the law enforcement officer doing his job who’s life was threatened and now his world torn apart.
So, Gov. Jay illegally called out the National Guard too soon, so why did Ferguson burn? Why the riots. Ok, the rioters submitted an idiotic list of demands, but did Gov. Jay have to follow them? Why did it take the National Guard so long?
That’s the question Ferguson Mayor James Knowles asked, rightfully so I might say.
Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder also had a theory on WHY no National Guard response to protect the businesses and citizens of Gov. Jay’s state? Why didn’t he protect his own citizens?
Lt.Gov. Kinder raises the question, did the obama/holder administration lean on Gov. Jay to keep the National Guard at bay? In this list of 10 things, check #8. Knowing Gov. Jay tries to curry favor with obama, it’s a good guess, that yes, to make obama happy, he would keep out the National Guard at the expense of his own citizens.
What shops were spared? Those with their own armed guards. Like the gas station in this story. No, it wasn’t the owner. The owner is white, the guards that showed up to protect the gas station were black. Kindness repaid with kindness, well, and AR-15s.
So, if people like Gov. Jay and State Senator Maria Chappell-Nadal want to pretend this is about race, and not about a criminal they choose to glorify, perhaps they REALLY need to bone up on some facts.
Now, don’t you feel like you have a better understanding of what has been going on in Ferguson? Don’t you feel like you’ve got a bit more of an understanding of the kind of man at the helm of the State of Missouri? Backstory, gotta love it. Backstory=Know Your Reptiles.
I’ll leave you with some rather interesting information from the always enlightening Bill Whittle.
