Posted on 04/04/2012 6:39:41 PM PDT by Seizethecarp
Fox News reporter Heather Childers posted some tweets asking her Twitter followers their thoughts on a couple articles related to Obama's eligibility. One article asked if Obama's campaign threatened to kill Bill and Hillary Clinton's daughter if they brought up Obama's eligibility during the 2008 campaign. The other article Childers tweeted was about the Alabama Supreme Court Justice that raised concerns about both of Obama's birth certificates which was headlined at this site then picked up by World Net Daily and then the Examiner. Needless to say that sent the Obama media thugs at Media Matters and Mediaite into a rabid frenzy.
Fox News senior VP for news Michael Clemente formerly of ABC News released a statement to Mediaite saying, "The tweets have been addressed with Heather and she understands this was a mistake." I guess Clemente missed her followup tweets?

What threats are being made to whom to enforce this suppression?
That is a wild claim.
Did the Tweetress have anything to back it up?
ping to more evidence of suppression of the Arpaio story...
“Did the Tweetress have anything to back it up?”
See FR thread here on WND’s Jerome Corsi reporting here:
Until/unless a County or State issues a subpeonea for a copy of the original to the state of Hawaii, this is worthless intellectual masturbation.
ABCNNBCBS = GGTV = Gangster Govt TV = American Pravda.
And even Fox is not immune to the groupthink. Some stories must NOT be mentioned!
“Did the Tweetress have anything to back it up?”
Bwahaha...where you been?
Plenty of evidence and plenty of intimidation of the media have been reported.
Oh come on . A reporter tweeting a story that Obama or his people threatened the life of Chelsea Clinton. That’s madness. If this is where opposition to Obama is going he’ll win 80% of the vote in November. Sometimes it seems some people on the Right are making the lefty moonbats on Kos sound like a Lawrence Welk album.
The most junior Chicago thug in history threatening the Arkansas Cankle Queen?
I believed in conspiracy theories until Vince Foster committed suicide.
I’ve said this MANY TIMES on FR, and I’ll say it again.
The left attack machine has those in the media not already compromised, terrified.
You dont want to be BLACK-LISTED, fired, branded a racist, and looking for a new job in the OBAMA ECONOMY, do you, Mr. Media Guy?
I mean, think of how unpopular you would become at the gay bar if you reported that!!
Oh... And, how are your tax records, by the way?
SNIFF SNIFF...sorry doesn’t pass the smell test....
an EX president has secret service protection...If this accusation had any legs the secret service would have investigated.....
Hawaii doesn’t honor subpoenas from other states. That’s why we need a FEDERAL investigation.
And at this point we know that Hawaii altered their 1960-64 birth index to include legally non-valid records. The logical conclusion from looking at their own statements is that they have also altered the BC#’s for at least Stig Waidelich and Virginia Sunahara. They are refusing to allow anybody to see ANYTHING except easily-manipulable computer abstracts. And they had responded at one point that there was no birth record for Virginia Sunahara in their database even though the printed birth index showed a birth record for her - so at least at that point the database had been changed from what they wanted the public to see.
So.... all that considered, even a certified copy of a birth certificate from the HDOH would mean nothing. They’ve already altered too many records for them to have any credibility. What is needed is the microfilms of the BC’s (at least enough to clarify the BC# problems and to allow forensic testing for the age of the microfilm), the paper records (which can also be tested for age and authenticity), and the computer transaction logs and complete vital records history (which would show any tampering with the computer records).
But if the HDOH won’t even allow Duncan Sunahara to inspect the birth certificate for his deceased sister, you can bet your bottom dollar that they will only allow the above records to be inspected and tested forensically when a duly-authorized federal agent pries them from their cold dead hands.
And that, right there, should tell everybody what I’ve been saying for a very long time: this isn’t about Obama at all. It’s about the rule of law, and whether government crooks can do what they bloody well please without any way for the public to hold them accountable.
your own denial does not make it go away
mark zullo, the lead investigator with Sheriff Joe’s office, reported members of the media, and their families, had been threatened. some quit their jobs to protect their families... and some were threatened with FTC investigations if they reported it (which office can wield the FTC like a club again?)
if you’re still wondering if these people play like this... i suggest you ask JFK jr.
Does Chelsea have secret service protection?
Show the original BC that your mama gave you, old, wrinkled, like everyone has in THEIR possession!
But if he dont gotit, he can't show it, but spends money and effort to “clean up” the records. Nothing to see here, move along, forward to communist paradise folks!
It’s more than just groupthink; they’ve been threatened. I’ll repost this here rather than type it all out again:
The threats that Soros made were to the media companies heads. Those media heads told their on-air personalities that Soros had threatened to annihilate them with FCC and FTC harassment after the election if anybody or their guest reported on the eligibility issue - and the companies themselves told their employees that their careers would definitely be over if they reported on it, and the not-so-subtle implication was that their lives and their families lives were questionable.
So it was actually the media companies who threatened the employees - with certain loss of career and probable death of them or their family members.
I spoke with Mike Zullo yesterday and he said that the witnesses to these threats are scared stiff. They cant get witness protection until the feds are involved. Let me state the obvious here: Eric Holders stranglehold on federal law enforcement and Congress unwillingness to make ANY LAWS stick is resulting in normal people going about their everyday jobs being afraid for their lives and the lives of their families. Its really not an exaggeration to say that the USA has become communist Russia in many ways.
WE NEED TO PRESSURE CONGRESS FOR A HEARING ON THESE FINDINGS AND THE APPOINTMENT OF AN INDEPENDENT PROSECUTOR.
Heres what I posted earlier, which contains links and other related information:
Im pretty sure Clear Channel was one of the radio media companies that was threatened in October of 2008 and again within a few months after the election.
My dealings with my local Fox radio station, KFAB out of Omaha, strongly suggested to me that the threats were extended all the way down to the local level.
What Soros is doing here makes Al Capone seem like a choir boy. This is total, tyrannical control over the airwaves of every square inch of America. I REALLY, REALLY hope Americans wake up to see whats happening here and decide not to let the Soros coup work.
For those who havent been following the story of the media threats, Ill re-post from a previous post:
The major media companies have been threatened - at least once before the election and at least once in the first few months after the election - with both FCC and FTC annihilation after the election if they reported about Obamas eligibility issue, and its claimed that Glenn Beck left Fox because the threats continued even after Beck ridiculed birthers but continued to report on Soros and Obamas ties to communists and Islamists. Beck couldnt provide protection for the lower-level staffers and Fox refused to provide protection and tried to stop him from exposing Soros ties because somebody from Foxs Board of Directors is tied to Soros financially.
Most people in the major media are in bed with Obama and Soros and their communist-Islamist alliance so they didnt mind the threats. Doug Hagman says thats actually what one witness said was brought out in one of the meetings where the media company told the on-air personalities that their jobs would definitely be lost and their lives and families lives were questionable if they reported on the eligibility issue.
But the threats were very real for the conservatives, which explains why were basically functioning without ANY media willing to cover the communist-Islamist coup currently taking place within our own country.
Those claims were made by Doug Hagman. Links are below. The transcript of Hagmans interview with Laurie Roth can be seen in Tom Ballantynes book Oh Really OReilly, for anybody who doesnt want to slog through 3 hours of audio. (update: It’s only a partial transcript. There is much more in the interview.)
And Mike Zullo, commander of Sheriff Arpaios Cold Case Posse, has verified that the threats actually did take place. See http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/did-threats-silence-media-on-obama-probe/ for the article, and/or see http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2856160/posts for discussion regarding the article.
Ill post here a comment I made earlier that gives the links for the Hagman information. I should also add that before I got confirmation of the accuracy of Hagmans claims from Mike Zullo personally, I constructed a timeline of events related to potential Soros threats, and based on that timeline I had already seen that Hagmans claims were very credible, which is why I reported them to Zullo and why he investigated them himself. (It was when I tried to forward my timeline to Zullo that my ISP informed me that my reply to Mikes e-mail couldnt be sent because the address failed; so I forwarded it to a go-between who forwarded it to him with no problem. Somebody with power to control the ISP didnt want me communicating with Mike about Soros threats.)
Those threats were actually basically repeated PUBLICLY when Media Matters told Ben Smith that they were conducting guerrilla warfare against Fox, trying to get British regulators to destroy NewsCorp - right after Hannity had agreed with Trumps statements that Obama should release a BC (which led to the release of what the posse has now confirmed is a forged BC).
Here is what I posted earlier about this, which puts into perspective Breitbarts death, the bomb scare with Rush Limbaugh, and the presser all happening on the same day (taken from the thread at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2854663/posts ) :
Right, but if he depends on Clear Channel for anybody to hear him, they can tell him what to say.
And this is a critical issue because Soros has threatened the media companies - including both TV and radio - if they reported on the eligibility issue. The same day as Sheriff Arpaio had a press conference saying there is probable cause that Obamas birth certificate and draft registration are both forged, two of the most independent and effective conservative media entities received messages intended to be overheard by every reporter at that presser. Rush had the bomb threat situation. And just hours after interviewing Sheriff Arpaio, Breitbart was dead.
So the country isnt hearing that a law enforcement investigation found that Obamas records are forged. Theyre hearing that Limbaugh called a gal a slut.
What the MEDIA, though, is hearing, is that Soros meant what he said when he threatened them - because Soros is working on taking out anybody in the media who MIGHT HAVE reported on the crimes that Soros & Co have committed to take the White House and country by an illegal coup.
The media is scared spitless. WND has also reported on this now; a thread about it is at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2856160/posts. Doug Hagman had investigated that, and the posse has corroborated his claims. What Hagman said was that the media people he spoke to were scared - and that was long before this situation with Breitbart and Limbaugh.
A fearless man cannot be controlled.
Speaking of tax records, the IRS is hassling my husband - who always spends dozens of hours making sure he’s got everything exact, complete, and accurate.
It doesn’t surprise us - any more than the deleting stuff from my blog, etc surprises us. Sadly, we’ve come to expect it. Doesn’t make it any less of a pain though.
I laughed myself silly this morning when I read that the 5th Circuit judge gave the DOJ a taste of their own medicine - an assignment of at least 3 single-spaced pages clarifying their understanding of judicial review, due in about 48 hours. lolol.
He says he can’t show it because it burned up in a fire that happened years before his book says he remembered looking at it...
The bumbling errors of these people would be hilarious if they weren’t playing the whole country for fools.
While destroying the country.
Andrew Breitbart was fearless. He had spoken on the phone with Joe Arpaio, heard Arpaio’s evidence, and said that it was good evidence.... 4-5 hours before he suddenly dropped dead on the sidewalk, on the same day as Arpaio publicly reported probable cause for forgery and fraud regarding Obama’s BC and draft registration AND on the same day as Rush Limbaugh had a bomb scare.
Neither Breitbart nor Limbaugh reported Arpaio’s findings. Two different ways of shutting people up. Both effective.
“...this isn’t about Obama at all. It’s about the rule of law, and whether government crooks can do what they bloody well please without any way for the public to hold them accountable.”
I would add “...accountable PEACEFULLY.” Thank you for saying what must be said. Very few will even allow themselves to think that way, much less admit it publicly, but it is a conclusion to which I have been forced to acknowledge, and perhaps the only way to begin to correct the situation. Constitution=rule of law. Dictatorship=rule by executive order.
Hey! Watch your tongue! Pravda had the guts to publish the info from Sheriff Arpaio’s investigation! Don’t knock the messenger.
Is that what he said at the event on Saturday? I’ve been meaning to listen to the whole thing but my computer is giving me trouble again.
quote of interest:
During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs, Zullo said.
The threats were so intimidating that some individuals quit their positions over safety concerns for their families, he said.” — Mike Zullo, lead investigator
“There are things I dont like about John McCain, but the truth is that an Obama presidency will inflict the greatest disaster on this nation that it has ever seen. Four years of the haloed one will see a rebirth of the USSR here in the USA.”
I’d think you’d know better.
More evidence that suppression of coverage of Arpaio's finding probable cause that the 0bama LFBC and Selective Service registration are forgeries continues
Thanks. One problem I have with the little reporting that has been done on this issue is that it makes it seem like the reporters aren’t reporting because they’re afraid of the FCC. And we all know that Obama uses veiled threats of government harassment so this doesn’t seem so very new. But what the actual on-air personalities are afraid of is that they or their families will be KILLED. Because the media companies strongly implied that if anybody violated the orders to keep silent on this issue, not only their career but also their own life and the lives of their loved ones would be in danger.
I don’t believe for one minute that it was either an “accident” or a coincidence that on the day of Arpaio’s presser the big news was, instead, the sudden death of Andrew Breitbart and a bomb scare for Rush Limbaugh.
Now there are some articles talking about what the producer of “We Will Not Be Silenced” has said about the same kind of threats being used in the 2008 primary against anybody who opposed Obama - complete with the names of specific people in strategic positions who died in specific ways at specific crucial points. Those deaths are documented facts. The timing is an objective fact. The silence on this issue is a documented fact.
As somebody said about Breitbart - if Breitbart exposes what was feared he would expose, then he probably wasn’t assassinated. If he doesn’t, it was not only an assassination but an effective one. Well.... Breitbart had told Arpaio that Arpaio’s evidence was good mere hours before he died, and while Breitbart’s successors have said they will “vet” Obama on other issues, they refuse to touch the eligibility issue. That suggests that it was an effective assassination, and that what the assassins were really afraid of Breitbart exposing was the credibility of Arpaio’s evidence.
In similar fashion, the Clintons kept quiet about Obama’s ineligibility. That wasn’t just out of the goodness of their hearts. Something shut them up. The deaths of strategic people at strategic times - including a good friend of Bill Clinton.... would explain what we all noticed about their behavior.
No matter what people here say, Fox News is NOT left-wing or the MSM. Not by a long shot. The difference between them and others is they give conservatives a fair shake. The Chelsea story sound far-fetched, but Obama has been pushing violence for 3 years no.
Fox has to have just enough “conservative” stuff to still have credibility - so people will buy into the Fox personalities’ mockery of the eligibility issue.
This is the same thing that Saddam Hussein did with CNN. He needed their credibility applied to his own propaganda so he gave them access in return for them just repeating his propaganda as if it came from them. Soros needs Fox to be credible with conservatives even while mocking the eligibility issue, or else he couldn’t get conservatives to go along with the mockery. If Fox became full-on liberal people would see the Soros takeover for what it was. So Soros’ plan had to allow mostly conservative stuff to still be said on Fox, in order to slip in, unnoticed, the real poison - the issue that had the potential to undo Obama. Eligibility.
If you read the last link I provided in a post I reposted in this thread, you’ll see that though the first censorship was over eligibility, Soros has expanded the coercion to disallow exposure of the Soros-Obama-czars connections to world communists and Islamists. The eligibility issue was the critical issue initially, but since finding out he has the power to run the Fox people like puppets, he’s increasingly using them that way.
Regarding the Obama/Soros and DNC shenanigans, there’s another article out by WND based on an interview of ANOTHER Hillary supporter/activist who notes the timing of 2 quick deaths right after Hillary’s supporters had gotten an agreement by those 2 individuals to present a petition that would have required the committed votes to actually be counted in the first round at the convention. That article is at http://www.wnd.com/2012/04/hillary-supporters-untold-obama-horror-stories/ and when you look at the timing the picture becomes much clearer. The shooting death was one day after the Bill/Hillary friend agreed to help, and the alleged aneurism while driving was 2 days after the woman agreed to help - both within 2 weeks of the convention. And the wife of the Hillary/Bill friend who was killed actually did the OPPOSITE of what her husband had agreed to do, which - together with Hillary’s own “gift” of NY’s delegates to Obama - gave the nomination to Obama. So something turned her around 180 degrees from honoring her murdered husband’s intentions.
It’s called conquering from within without firing a bullit....we are on the edge of never returning to the nation as we have known it...and the media is all on board to see that doesn’t happen.
Those tweets have escaped into the ether and cannot be called back.
Ideas will coalesce around them.
People will start talking.
People will start thinking.
He”s obviously so guilty of not being eligible that they threaten to kill people who talk about it. It’s already been exposed. Why the threats if he is as clean as the wind driven snow?
We’ve certainly seen with out own eyes the taking of this country by evil people. I never thought it would happen in my lifetime. And the saddest thing is those who still worhip at the altar of obama.
I don’t think the Clintons would have let a death threat go unnoticed. Clinton is well liked and actually respected for some reason and still has power. He and his wife could have gone public on this and stopped the whole BO machine. Hill would have been president. After that, if anyone was murdered, it could have been used as proof that they were threatened and this would have been stopped. I don’t believe he would let this happen.
You know that when you rile somebody up like that in politics, that you are getting close to the truth. The Left gets very angry when anyone asks about Obama’s eligibility. The opposite should be true. They would welcome such questions and then use it against their detractors later but later has come and gone.
We have already. They were meeting with the US Chamber of Commerce in "private" yesterday. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2868157/posts
The petition called for a floor nomination of Hillary Clinton that would force a count of the delegates for each candidate.
There was no way the Democratic National Committee could knock the signatures off this petition, she said. The next step was to get a super-delegate to introduce these petitions from the convention floor.
Thomas turned to Bill Gwatney, the chairman of the Arkansas Democratic Party and a close personal friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, to pick a super-delegate from the Arkansas delegation to introduce her petition at the convention.
On Aug. 13, 2008, a gunman entered the Arkansas Democratic Party headquarters, walked down the hallway to Gwatneys office and fired several shots at him, killing him instantly. The assailant, identified as Timothy D. Johnson, was fatally wounded by the police after a long car chase.
The Democratic National Convention began in Denver less than two weeks later.
Thomas said she also had approached former U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones from Ohio, an African-American woman who had been campaigning for Hillary from the beginning to the end, and who never wavered in her support even though she had major threats from the Obama campaign and from the black community that she had better change her support.
Unfortunately, Stephanie Tubbs Jones died of a supposed brain aneurysm just before the Democratic National Convention, Thomas recalled.
On Aug. 20, 2008, Fox News reported that Tubbs Jones, 58, one of Hillary Clintons biggest supporters during the Democratic primaries, suffered a brain hemorrhage while driving her car in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and died after being rushed to the hospital.
We found it quite a coincidence that Bill Gwatney was killed the day after we talked with him, Thomas said. And just a few days later that Tubbs Jones died suddenly of an aneurysm, after she had agreed to introduce our petition.
As Butter said, Hawaii has denied Virginia's own brother from getting her BC. He's having to sue the state. Why would someone be denied their sister's bc and that bc is the very one that is suspected of being stolen by Obama? HI inacted a new law a couple years ago about vexatious requestors in that they won't reply to citizens' requests for public information (aka the butterdezillion law). Then Obama's good buddy Abercrombie coincidently gets elected governor and stated his first act would be to find O's bc. However, he goes all flippity-floppity that it's not there one day, the next it is there, the next it's in the archives where bc's aren't kept, and then there isn't a record per say but that maybe it was written in the margin or some such hooey. He's finally shut up about it. HI is now locked up tighter than Ft. Knox and no one is getting anything out of them.
If you had an actual choice that gave you close to what you wanted, you wouldn't go anywhere near Fox or Romney.
Unfortunately, when near universal suckiness is the rule and not the exception, seems like the best you can do is end up with that which sucks the least.
Wow. I hadn’t known any of that prior to your posting of it. Even if the events are unconnected, they would certainly leave the IMPRESSION that crossing Obama will get you killed.
Indeed. But shutting someone up and controlling them are different things. Breitbart left a legacy and has inspired a new generation. In a real sense, he is not silent and that cannot be controlled.
Limbaugh still breathes but if he remains silent then he is not fearless and is being controlled.
That’s a good point, and it also applies to the news media as well: if they had gone public with the threats they could have stopped Obama from becoming POTUS.
That’s one of the reasons why I think there is more to this. Here’s a link to one post about my theory: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2866680/posts?page=49#49
And I’ll re-post another here that talks about it:
He gets his power from George Soros and Soros communist and Islamist allies. My computer is slow and Im headed off to bed so I didnt take the time to read the article and dont know if this article mentioned it, but in the full interview this gal gave she said that Soros met with both Hillary and Obama to see if they were game to help him destroy the USA; Hillary wasnt but Obama was fine with that plan.
All Soros had to do was get his communist and Islamist allies to make a run on the bank all at the same time, throw the economic world into chaos, and then threaten to do the same thing again if anybody resisted whatever he told them to do...
Of course, there were also less-drastic threats that could be used on the more minor players. Like the threat of race riots (for politicians) or the threat of FCC/FTC annihilation (for the media personalities to think was the threat). But for the people who could really make a difference - like President Bush (whose AG still controlled federal law enforcement) or Roger Ailes (who could have reported any threats to silence the media and eliminated those threats), the threat of collapsing the entire worlds economy - right after proving he had the power to do exactly that - was enough to keep them in line.
And that may have included Hillary too. Or it could have been enough for Hillary to know that she would have to try to win even with Soros fighting against her - Soros who has said the democratic party is his since he bought and paid for it.
See, Hillary is mostly communist herself but she is also a natural born US citizen, and I dont think even she could bring herself to wish for the destruction of the US. Thats the difference between being an American and being a foreign enemy combatant, and the Founding Fathers were pretty smart people to realize the difference.
This is all speculation on my part, but based on strange things weve pretty much all noticed.
Im really wondering what SCOTUS is going to do with Obamacare. Its being set up as likely that SCOTUS will throw out Obamacare and that fact will help Obamas reelection chances. Im not so sure thats whatll happen though. If Soros has the kind of power I suspect he does, for the reasons I suspect, then SCOTUS will probably do whatever Soros wants. Im not so sure that Obamacare being overturned would help get Obama elected - or that Soros is actually worried about re-election even, since he could pull the plug on the world economy at any time if he thought Obama was in danger of losing the election. Obamas public comments toward SCOTUS seem threatening IMHO.
Well see what happens, but I wouldnt be one bit surprised if SCOTUS throws us all for a loop by upholding Obamacare - even after putting up the appearance that they wont. If that happens I will consider my theory practically proven.
I think Chief Justice Roberts is the weak link. I think he is the one Soros threatened - which is why he expressed confidence in the justices knowing when to recuse themselves, even though Kagan and Sotomayor had just refused to recuse themselves in the case Hemenway was arguing (I keep forgetting the plaintiffs name in that case. sigh) AND Kagan ultimately allowed herself to participate in Obamacare even though she would be hearing the very arguments she herself developed for the Obama administration. So in both instances she was the judge of her own self - the ultimate conflict of interest ethics breach. Yet Roberts actually publicly defended that. Gag. Either he was threatened into that, or he is a tiny fraction of the Constitutional defender he was thought to be. In either case he would be the weak link...
Anyway, just some thoughts before I head off to bed. Gnight!
