Obama File: White House Media Protection


One of the broken promises that BH Obama made was that his administration would be “the most open and transparent in history”.  Far from the truth.
Obama and his cronies are typical sociocrats – “do as I say not as I do” policy.
On the Senate floor, Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada, made quite the statement that he heard from a “Bain Capital investor” that Mitt Romney paid no taxes in the last ten years. Reid was challenged as to what the source for is allegation was, and stated:

I am not basing this on some figment of my imagination. I have had a number of people tell me that. That’s the best you’re going to get from me. … I don’t think the burden should be on me. The burden should be on him. He’s the one I’ve alleged has not paid any taxes. Why didn’t he release his tax returns?

To the Democrats, the burden is upon Romney to prove the statement false, whether it was legitimate or not. But what if the table was turned around? I do not think I need to elaborate what would have happened – with the help of the bias media.

Arnold Ahlert, at FrontPagestated:
This is the stuff of banana republics and totalitarian regimes, but the Senate Majority Leader does it anyway, knowing that his media allies are more than willing to keep the story alive, and that other Democrats will rally to his side.
Mark Alexander at Patriot Post:
So, if I claimed someone told me that Harry Reid moonlights as a transvestite Marilyn Monroe impersonator in Vegas, by Reid’s distorted proof standard, the burden is on him to prove otherwise. . . . For the record, Mitt Romney has released tax returns for the last two years, but hypocritically Reid, Pelosi and Wasserman have refused to release their tax records, which might shed light upon how they have increased their net worth by tens of millions of dollars while in Congress.
Of course, Obama’s “mouthpiece” (Jay Carney) in the White House stated that Reid “speaks for himself”; but also said:
You know, releasing private information isn’t every candidate’s favorite part of the process, but it’s a tradition that’s important. It’s valuable to the American people as they decide who should be president.
In the light of transparency and “fairness”, Mark Alexander wrote:
I want to see records regarding his repatriation when he returned from Indonesia; name change from Barry Sotero to Barack Hussein Obama; Punahou School, Occidental College and Columbia University (all three of which could show he illegally applied for aid as a foreign student, among other things); Columbia senior thesis; Harvard Law School; years in the Illinois State Senate; membership in the Illinois State Bar Association; medical; and, finally, his passport and visa records. Obama has refused to release any of these files, and has paid millions of dollars in legal fees to suppress them. Any one of them would likely provide plenty of evidence to raise questions about Obama’s qualifications to run for president of the United States — or to be re-elected to that post.
For example, let’s focus on just one of the sets that Obama refuses to release — his Columbia records. A Columbia class of ’83 colleague, author and former Libertarian Party vice-presidential nominee Wayne Allyn Root, says he never saw or heard of Obama even though they were in the same political science and pre-law program. He also says that if Obama’s Columbia records were released, one might find that he “attended Columbia as a foreign exchange student and paid little [tuition for Columbia] or Harvard Law School because he illegally applied for foreign aid.” Adding to the Obama enigma, a Wall Street Journal report filed back when Obama was a candidate, “Obama’s Lost Years,” noted that “some 400 of his classmates [were randomly contacted] but no one … remembered him.” What we do know about Obama is that he had a tragic young life, despite his official White House bio that begins, “His story is the American story — values from the heartland, a middle-class upbringing in a strong family…” We know Obama was a disciple of hate and mentored by Marxists

David Rothkopf, CEO of FP Group and who has usually sided with the Democrat Party stated:
I have voted Democrat all my life. I served in the Clinton administration and worked for a Democratic congressman on Capitol Hill. I deplore these tactics. When Harry Reid goes on the floor of the Senate and makes assertions like he did, he demeans the institution. As my old boss, the late Ron Brown, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, used to say, ‘You can’t be for jobs and against the people who create them.’ Every time you hear a politician sling mud at an opponent rather than addressing a real issue, recognize that you’re the one being dissed. Then do us all a favor and vote your anger.
Washington media has kept silent about scandals, making Obama look like “Honest Abe”; but in reality:
FAST AND FURIOUS – The Obama Justice Department encouraged American gun shops to sell weapons to Mexican drug cartels, who then shot and killed Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry in 2010, as well as at least 150 Mexican citizens with the same firearms. CBS reporter, Sharyl Attkissonfiled 29 stories that unraveled the scandal, ABC and NBC was almost silent for many months, even when Attorney General Eric Holder admitted he had misled Congress about what he had learned about the operation, and has been involved with other shady dealings. It was only when Congress voted to hold Holder in contempt did they discover the story, and then it was dismissed on NBC as “vicious” and “another example of our broken politics”.
SOLYNDRA – In the first two months of 2002, the three big networks reported 198 stories on the Enron bankruptcy, attempting to tie it with GW Bush. Yet, on August 31st, 2011, despite $500,000 in federal loans from the Energy Department, Solyndra went bankrupt. ABC, CBS, and NBC filed only 24 stories on Solyndra with barely a connection with Obama and company – even as the promised “green jobs” collapsed.
MF GLOBAL – Run by former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, a major Obama fundraiser, declared bankruptcy in October of 2011 and admitted they lost more than a billion dollars of customer money that was supposed to be kept separately from risky investment schemes. This scandal was covered by the media with only six stories. Only NBC mentioned Corzine was a Democrat. No connection made to Obama.
GIBSON GUITAR – Federal agents raided the Gibson Guitar plants in Tennessee to investigate whether they were improperly importing wood from Madagascar and India, but waited almost a year before fining the guitar maker $300,000. No one found it newsworthy that Gibson’s CEO is a Republican donor, while other guitar makers, who were not Republicans, were not raided by the government over the issue of wood importation.
REVEREND WRIGHT – After the Obama inauguration, there was a long silence from Reverend Wright, especially since the networks would not expose his hate speeches and sermons; until it was rumored that the Republicans were going to use his ranting in an ad. As revealed in Ed Klein’s book, The Amateur, networks did not follow up on the lead that Reverend Wright had claimed, on taped interview, that Obama people offered him money to keep silent.
In an MRC special report, a Gallup survey showed that only 21% of those surveyed had confidence in television news. Networks focused upon the royal wedding in England and the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial on the evening news in 2011 – but the Obama scandals were barely mentioned.
Somewhere, at some crossroad, in the life of Barack Hussein Obama, alias Barry Soetoro, he must have sold his soul to the devil, but it wasn’t in Georgia. 
Even the media cannot suppress the truth after a time, especially when so much corruption is going on.
