Skip to comments.Michael Goldfarb Talks to Glenn Beck about Obama Base-Closing Threat Against Sen. Ben Nelson - Video
Posted on 12/17/2009 5:28:49 AM PST by Federalist Patriot
Here is video of Michael Goldfarb, of The Weekly Standard, talking with Glenn Beck yesterday about a source who told him that President Obama's team has threatened Democrat Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska to get him to support the Senate Health Care Bill. Goldfarb said a source told him they threatened to put Offut Air Force Base in Nebraska on the Base closing review list if Nelson does not support ObamaCare. Twenty GOP Senators are now reportedly calling for an investigation into the threat.
Goldfarb says it is not a credible threat, and shows the White House does not even understand the base closing process.
But as Glenn Beck points out, the fact they would use such tactics to twist arms says a great deal about Obama and his administration. . . . (VIDEO)

I watched this last night and as soon as Beck interrupted the guest and went into a fast break, I told DH-—”they got a call”.
They came back out of the break and didn’t mention Rahm Emmanuel after that.
At the end of the show, Beck said they got a call.
this is a “president” who, enroute to Asia at a fueling stopver, insisted an F-22 at Elmendorf be moved so as not to be in any of his photos because he opposed that weapon system as a 6 month Senator
No word on what fighter aircraft performed escort duties for his flight over the Pacific
no wonder the Russians and Chinese are showing increasing contempt for US - because of HIM
I urge Beck and FOX to put these “calls” from the WH on speakerphone so we can all hear them
The White House censured them?
This is not the first time. (WH didn’t call in on Becks red phone) I guess the producer got the call. Try to find the entire segment. There’s a daily Glenn Beck thread here at FR....maybe they have something on it.
I think the producer gets the calls?
Well, I guess you could consider him the "king of stink"!
That Air Force Base is one of the select safe houses for the POTUS in case of Nuclear attack.
The WH is (or it's supposed to be) the people's house. As such, the people have a right to know. Put them on the speaker phone and let's hear them start stuttering when they realize they're on live to the world.
It’s not the nature of the evidence, it is the seriousness of the charge. Investigate away.
