Skip to comments.Our MSM Quiet As A Obama Chicago Style Scandal Grows
Posted on 08/01/2009 10:20:21 AM PDT by Starman417
I just have to wonder what kind of uproar and front page news stories would be coming out daily if the Walpin/Johnson IG Firing Story had happened during Bush's watch.
You know the answer to that question. We would be blasted by the story daily, for weeks on end.
But under the Obama administration the MSM doesn't utter a peep.
Except for Byron York reporting in The Washington Examiner that is.
Before I get to his story let's do a recap of the scandal, since it's been weeks and weeks since the story came out.
There are four players in this drama.
Gerald Walpin - Inspector General for the Corporation for National and Community Service
Kevin Johnson - Mayor of Sacramento
Lawrence Brown - Acting US Attorney in Sacramento
Barack Obama - President of the United States
AmeriCorps is the outfit which Obama planned to expand with his forced "volunteerism" operation, which pretty much amounts to his own version of slavery. Of course that plan disappeared and the Serve America Act came out of it. However, as with most things Obama planned to do, it's run out of money
But I digress.
This whole story started when AmeriCorps decided they would give some cash, to the tune of 800 grand, to a influential friend of Obama's, Mayor Kevin Johnson. Walpin began investigating Johnson's misuse of that federal money which effectively suspended him from receiving any new federal money for the city of Sacramento. This, as you can imagine, pissed off the local population which caused some bad press to be generated for the friend of Obama's.
But then what happened? The Acting US Attorney, Lawrence Brown, somehow made a deal to get Johnson off the hook and the money flew in again, to much hoopla, and the denouncement of Walpin. Walpin objected vigorously and then he was fired.
Now, knowing all that, do ya think this would be huge if Bush was in office?
Now onto York:

The MSM is never “quiet.”
Rather it is in full cover up.
By the way, this past month was the worst month for our American military since the war BEGAN...and ne’rly a wurd froom our commie media.
The media isn’t going to report on it. They helped get the crooked dems elected, and they aren’t going to turn on them now.
By the way, this past month was the worst month for our American military since the war BEGAN...and nerly a wurd froom our commie media.
In what, casualties or deaths? And in just Afghanistan or both Iraq and Afghanistan?
Walpin objected vigorously and then he was fired.
I Intend to follow Walpin’s law suit against the corrupt obamanation.. He is being tarred and feathered by the obamanation for Whistle Blowing. There are laws against that even now, while the obamanation trying to take over America and slam his socialist/communist agenda down our throats.
This is just another one of the fraudulent and illegal acts committed by Obama, his Campaign, his staff, his shills and co-conspirators in the news media, his ACORN affiliates, his foreign contributors, and an all-star cast of supporting characters in the biggest political cover-up since Watergate.
1. DEM / Sacramento congresswoman Doris Matsui called in the Walpin HIT to the Daley machine /Chicago thugs running the WH because of the following :
a. the Tsakopoulos Greek Billionaire developer family was not going to get their CUT in the Stimulus scam money because the Crook and possible pedophile Mayor Kevin JOhnson was caught using his non profit as a scam to shelter campaign funds and other activities!
b. apparently. Kevin called his buddy Michelle Obama directly to speed up the HIT on Walpin ! c. BY the way guess Mayor Daley's front guy Obama is just about to give Ms Tsakopuolos ( daughter) the ambassador position to Greece !
Unless removed this kind of corruption will be conducted on a daily basis by the Obama administration.
There is no legal solution
I was saying this the other day.
We are losing men and women over there and yet nothing form the media.
The media have been a disgrace to their profession and themselves.
It[s just a shame that they are so elitist and so far up their own arse that they fail to see this.
Ive heard a couple stories during past 48 hours about Bush’s firing of those attorneys 3 years ago but nothing on this. A 3 year old story about something that everyone agrees was legal and yet we hear nothing on Walpin.
***AmeriCorps is the outfit which Obama planned to expand with his forced “volunteerism” operation, which pretty much amounts to his own version of slavery.****
I have no problem with “CONVICT LABOR”. Just keep the chains on them and lock them up at the end of the day.
