White House to Media--'Don't Report What You Discover'
Conservative Examiner ^ | 4/5/2010 | Anthony G. Martin

Posted on 04/05/2010 2:40:28 PM PDT by Welshman007

In light of numbing revelations over the last several days concerning fraudulent statements on Barack Obama's resume, this piece of information curiously comes to light. The White House has instructed the 'mainstream media' not to report what they may discover.

The White House directive was issued as part of a deal struck between the Office of the President and reporters of the mainstream media.

In exchange for being given unprecedented access to Barack Obama, reporters would promise not to report 'certain matters' they may discover while covering the President.

From Steve Clemons at The Washington Note:

“In exchange for being given unprecedented access to Barack Obama, reporters would promise not to report ‘certain matters’ they may discover while covering the President.”

Can you imagine the firestorm if this were any republican president. What good is the “free press” anymore?

Ahhhhhh, it is a content website that anyone can sign up and publish articles on???

But why then every military personnel in mutiny refusing to recognize President Barack Obama as Commander-in-Chief alleging he was born in Kenya not being court marshalled?

Was looking promising until it hit the CIA angle - get out the tinfoil. There is a much simpler reason for the free pass he’s received through life - I’m his age and know just how HUGE a thumb was put on the scale for affirmative action reasons at top colleges and law schools.

It still galls me how little we know about his past.

Obama is a CIA plant? From the same guys that did so well on 9-11, WMD, ... If your going to have a conspiracy plot, put a credible organization at the center of the plot to make it believable at least. An organization that's shown some competence, like FEDEX or Apple maybe.

Just in case there was any lingering doubt about the media and the Obama/Soros Administration being in collusion.

“How old are these people? It sounds like high school.”

...years ago when Hunter Thompson covered a presidential campaign he wondered the same thing...”why does the press take this kind of crap?”...well your job depends on it...because if you ask hard questions, the WH won’t talk to you....and if they freeze you out you get fired...that’s why there’s few reporters that will speak up.

This is old news, I did a Google search, and what came up, is that he claimed to be a law professor, when in fact he was just a lecturer. I’ve seen that before and there was a discussion whether or not he was entitled to call himself a law professor.

I think this is the least of the problems with Obama.

Let’s focus on his plans of turning the US into a weak, socialist country.

“We’ll give you unprecedented access to the fraud if you promise not to report ..... he is a fraud”

D’Oh.

He has already given about what, 500 interviews in the past year? What is “unprecedented access? A key to the elevator? A pillow at the foot of Barry’s bed? In exchange for what? Not breaking perhaps the greatest story of fraud and deception in US political history?

Whatever reporter who breaks Obamagate will be vilified by the MSM.

When you factor in the ‘look the other way’ cozy relationship the MSM has with Dems, might have better luck looking at the NATIONAL ENQUIRER for real news.

I can’t believe he learned all those difficult languages, or even one of them. Yet I have heard the CIA story before (gossip—no source). His knowing something that could harm others sounds plausible. That would make him a counterspy in a way.

Please note—the article does not state that Obama was a CIA operative but merely raises the question based upon allegations of a few sources in the know. Right now, we are asking questions attempting to get at the truth. To ask the questions is not tantamount to stating this as a confirmed fact.

I would never suspect Obama as cooperating with the CIA, or anything else so honorable.

I would however suspect him of having been a drug-using, teenage gay prostitute; a commie, muslim, non-citizen, usurper, anti-American, POS, scumbag.

So, if we keep talking bad about him, he won't talk to us anymore?

In Soviet Russia, everyone KNEW that the Pravda came from the State. It really lost its effect within the country.

Our mission is to inform everyone that our mainstream news sources ALSO come from the State. Our news sources only have this power because Joe and Josie American still believe them.

The same guy who told them someone got shot today on South Street, and that it’s going to rain tomorrow, all provable, are also telling them lies about the government that they just suck in.

The fact that the media has received access to Obama in exchange for covering up anything bad about him needs to be exposed everywhere.

Here’s a thought - first time I’ve considered this - maybe many others have already asked the question.

Barry hates the Brits. Barry has done his level best to piss off the Brits. Many people think that Barry Sr. was a British National holding a British passport. So I’m wondering - do the Brits have any records that might be relevant? Is there some clerk in some British fileroom that could fire (another) shot heard ‘round the world?

I don’t know WHAT to make of it - any of it. We discovered the “possible CIA plant” storyline about 18 months ago- seemed a bit fanciful. Also- about a year or so ago a paper in Canada ran a story suggesting the major media outlets had been intimidated and/or discreetly threatened to not investigate his background...including college, law school, birth etc.

It’s just SO BIZARRE I don’t know WHAT to think!!!

Some days I think...too Vince Flynn-Tom Clancy...other days I think..no fiction could come close to this..

It’s crazy-making.
