Media threatened with federal investigations if Obama birth certificate story reported
Coach is Right ^ | 3/20/2012 | Doug Book

Posted on 03/20/2012 10:04:13 AM PDT by Oldpuppymax

Individuals and member organizations of the American media were threatened with FTC and FCC investigation if information gathered by Sheriff Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse concerning the forgery of Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate were passed on to the American public.

It was Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo who made this stunning revelation, stating “During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs.” (1)

And Jerome Corsi, author of “Where’s the birth certificate,” the book whose imminent publication was responsible for forcing Barack Obama to quickly create and place the fraudulent long form birth certificate on the White House web site, has said that “Testimony is being developed that the White House is intimidating, in a systematic way, the mainstream media and if any broadcasters dare go into this birther story, they’re going to risk FCC investigations… people are going to have careers ruined… thrown off the air.” (2)

Zullo went on to say the threats actually caused some individuals to “…quit their positions over safety concerns for their families.” (1)

Those who tuned in to the web-cast of the Cold Case Posse report will recall that the scant few media members in attendance made it their business to represent the President rather than report on the information presented about the fraudulent birth certificate.

Each “reporter” in his turn...

Boy, since there’s “no problem” as we’re repeatedly told, they sure act awfully funny.

I don’t mean “haha” funny ... but very odd.

Almost as if ..........................

Movie quote: "You can always tell when someone is trying to hide something, by the way they try to hide it."

Nobody goes to as much trouble to hide anything as obama has his past, so there must be something very dark and foreboding there that would catastrophic to him.

Another movie quote: "Sooner or later, everybody's bill comes due."


OBAMA COLB

Could this be why Beck left? Why Breitbart is gone? Why Judge Napolitano has been dropped? And why so many otherwise OK taking heads refuse to touch the Birth Certificate issue?

“She reluctantly agreed to film a political advertisement when he urgently needed to reassure voters about his distinctive American roots. “

This is what the NYT wrote about Madelyn Dunham after Obama visited her for the last time in 2008. And I always wondered why she would be reluctant.

I think you're both right, but it would be ironic that if Obama's efforts to hide his crime was what eventually brought him down in the end.

Wasn't that what prompted Nixon resign?

I think that's the angle the Sheriff's Posse is taking.

This is precisely what FDR created the FCC for. FDR had his own "troublesome priests" in the media (radio back then)and he used the FCC vigorously against them.

Highly believable. I know the mentioned town, school, train and neighborhood from the mentioned time frame like the back of my hand. A person of color walking the mile from the train to the Ayers would have really stood out.

The DNC media isn’t going to report anything about Obama’s real past. It isn’t their job. Their job is to defend Obama, and attack anyone who opposes him.

I would think that threats against the media wouldn’t work unless they have stuff in their background that makes them black-mailable. Stuff like distorting facts and the truth as well as being a knowing party to fraud.

Now we know why Hitler rose to power. Everyone who could have/should have opposed him was gutless.

If all these threatened media people - or even a portion of them - together made these threats public, they would nullify the threat.

But no, they are unprincipled cowardly traitors.

I think it is worthless, in the legal sense. (Getting my flame proof suit ready...)

Drudge is reporting that a man who is likely elderly was told by Mary Ayers that they were helping a foreign student. The type of help was not specified, but he "assumed" that it was financial. Further, he didn't recall the student's name, but "it was a 'strange name' that he could not remember, even though at the time it sounded African to him." He thought he met that same student later, based on the fact that a young black man came to the Ayer's home to thank them for help with his education. The postman "associated" this man with the foreign student the Ayer's had helped. Years later he became convinced this was 0bama.

There are so many ways this will be ripped up in court I'd be surprised if the lawyers try it. Oh wait, given what Orly has pulled in the past, I won't be surprised.

“During our investigation, we actually were told [that media] had been threatened with FTC investigations. Commentators [had been] threatened with their jobs,” Zullo said.

In other words, "anonymous" sources.......

You got to admit, that guy Anonymous sure gets around.

I wonder if any of these "media" and "commentators" are aware of the "Whistleblower" act?

Considering the fact that "Coach" got his info from WND (see footnotes at his site if you want to), you can take the rest of his comments with a grain of salt.

As a side note, wasn't WND the source of all of Michael Rivero's threads on the black helicopters, secret internment camps and fleets of unmarked white vans waiting in the wings to wisk us away to those camps?

The “Whistle blower Act” you seem to have so much confidence in did absolutely NOTHING to help former ATF agent Vince Cefalu after he gave testimony of Fast and Furious. When thugs and criminals are in charge, anonymous is the way most are going to go.

As in most cases when criminals don’t leave video of their crimes lying around, it boils down to who to believe!

And if the choice is between either Arpaoi, Zullo and Corsi or Barack Hussein Obama I know who I figure most likely to be telling the truth.

If the US media had any ethics and loyalty to the US, they would handle this tin horn dictator wannabe like a rag doll. The FCC has not power if Obama has no power. They could cut his legs off and they are not doing it.

It is the meida owners and management that are threatening the reporters. The excuse some may have given (like at FOX) that an FCC witch hunt is a threat, but the rule comes from the top down in the media management over the reporters. Who threatens reporters they will be fired? Not Obama!

That is why I think the posse should not go down this rabbit hole. The threats are coming from media manangement and hyper liberal reporters are holding the propaganda line and isloating honest reporters with the media management and their Obama administration.
