Apparently, we (concerned citizens, patriots, the New Media, "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher, Sarah Palin) have made somebody very, very angry. Well, you see the problem, don't you? We weren't supposed to know that Barack Obama is a Socialist (or worse). We were also supposed to be kept unaware of what Obama's promise of "change" would be.
The main stream media was doing everything they could to keep it a secret. And now that the "secret plan of Socialism" is exposed, thanks to Joe the Plumber and Gov. Sarah Palin, we are also now becoming aware of the tyranny that is a natural by-product of Socialism... We weren't supposed to know about that, either!
And then, while watching Neil Cavutto on Fox News Saturday morning, I was able to capture the following segment from the show:
The investigation that Neil and Joe are talking about in the video above is an extreme case of abuse of power, obviously by Obama allies. Here is part of the story from http://www.therightperspective.com/:
Now, that adds even more interest to this story. Being that Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers is most likely - no, wait, let's go with obviously - a very strong ally of Barack Obama, it is time to call for a special prosecutor and FBI investigation into this case. Nancy Rogers can not be trusted to investigate her own office.
State and local officials in Columbus, Ohio are investigating if state and law-enforcement computer systems were illegally accessed when they were tapped for personal information about Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher.
Information on Wurzelbacher’s driver’s license or his sport-utility vehicle was pulled from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles database three times shortly after the debate, reports The Dispatch. The info was accessed by accounts assigned to the office of Ohio Attorney General Nancy H. Rogers, the Cuyahoga County Child Support Enforcement Agency and the Toledo Police Department.
And now, keep in mind, this is the one and the same Nancy H. Rogers that was ordered by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in "an emergency ruling requiring the state to generate a list of more than 200,000 new voters whose information did not match other state records", and then on emergency review, got the U. S. Supreme Court to vacate that ruling. Here is more about that from AlterNet.org, By Wendy Weiser, Brennan Center for Justice, October 22, 2008:
On September 26, 2008, the Ohio Republican Party asked a federal court to issue an emergency ruling requiring the state to generate a list of more than 200,000 new voters whose information did not match other state records, presumably so those voters could be purged from the rolls right before the election, forced to vote provisional ballots, or challenged at the polls. They asked the court before the absentee ballots cast by new registrants were opened and counted. A federal court granted the temporary restraining order, and after a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit stayed that order, the full appeals court, sitting en banc, reinstated it. On emergency review, the U.S. Supreme Court vacated the TRO on October 17, 2008, preventing chaos in the election in Ohio and protecting hundreds of thousands of Ohio citizens from disenfranchisement-by-typo.
While I am willing to graciously admit that the U.S. Supreme Court may have made the right decision in this case, the information above does indicate the unwillingness from the Ohio Attorney General's office, run by Nancy Rogers, to resolve the issue of the possibility of thousands of fraudulent voter registrations, garnered mostly by ACORN (another Obama ally). On May 28, 2008, Governor Ted Strickland (a staunch Democrat) named Rogers as Attorney General, replacing Marc Dann (who resigned due to a scandal - see the link to the wiki site from the hyperlink from Marc Dann).
Of course, this information does not prove that Ohio Attorney General Nancy Hardin Rogers had a direct connection to the investigation of Joe Wurzelbacher, but it does illustrate the influence that the Attorney General's office may have had in what should be the "October Surprise" we've been waiting for.
It is one thing for the drive-by media and the Democrat party to send many reporters and lawyers to Alaska to investigate (i.e. dig up dirt on) Gov. Sarah Palin, now the candidate for V.P. on the Republican ticket with John McCain. That is pretty much to be expected. But, for someone, or some group, to start trying to find dirt on Joe Wurzelbacher, is unconscionable. The fact that the info was accessed from three seperate government entities, shortly after the last Presidential Debate, where "Joe the Plumber" was mentioned numerous times, should be enough to make us all shudder.
I fear the worst in this breaking news. I do not think that there is anything to be found on Mr. Wurzelbacher that could make any difference regarding his question to Barack Obama. That water has already gone over the dam. What is frightening is the thought that somebody would use the information to go after good old Joe the Plumber, just to make his life miserable. And this is the MOST terrifying part of all: Is this their way of retaliating against Joe the Plumber for his question, and letting the cat out of the bag about Obama being a Socialist?
Is this a "suggestion" (a message) by "the powers that be" to citizens, that we best not ask any more questions "if you know what's good for you"?
Will one of us average people out here in the blogosphere face the same treatment as "Joe the Plumber"? Will you soon be reading about what they did to "Johnny the Blogger"?

I want thank Peter Goodman (NewsGuy2005 on digg.com) for telling me about a story that was on therightperspective.com. To be honest, the only material I really had to work with before I was directed to Joe the Plumber Background Check Investigated was the video embedded above. The story Peter alerted me to turned out to be the piece of the puzzle I needed to get this blog written today. He "shouted" the story to me just at the right time.
This acknowledgement is written for another reason along with being an opportunity to thank Peter. What this illustrates is that the passion Conservatives are sharing at this time can be very valuable when we assist each other in our efforts. By collaborating on stories, sharing information, promoting each other's works, and edifying our cohorts, the amount of influence and credibility that we can gain is immense. It is also a way that we can cover each other's six (back side).
And like Rush Limbaugh stated just the other day, our side must win, Obama must be defeated, even if we have to drag John McCain over the finish line. (Paraphrased.) Which leads me to a final acknowledgement, and that is to thank "Joe the Plumber", Mr. Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, for being in the right place at the right time, and somehow sparking a campaign that may have been fizzling. It's a whole different story now.
Oh, and for Sarah Palin, just for being the champion of the Conservative movement. You rock, Sarah!
