NEWS Flash!!: Obamas campaign manager offers 3 million dollars to API in connection with Michelle Obama tape to be aired by Fox News Network
Posted by africanpress on October 29, 2008
Six hours after the release of information by API on the planned broadcast by Fox News Network of the Michelle Obama tape, in accordance with an agreement that has been reached between API and Fox News Network, API was contacted by Obamas Campaign Manager.
Those who are close to the democratic presidential candidate must be desperate to win the elections no matter what, otherwise they would not have taken such bold step to contact API with an offer of a bribe in order to stop the airing of the tape.
Obamas campaign manager contacted API by telephone and email offering 3 million US dollars followed with a request to API to cancel the deal with Fox News Network.
Ten days ago API received the first request to accept 2 million US dollars by Mr Ed Hale, President of Plains Radio, Texas - USA, in an effort to suppress the information from reaching the public before the coming US Presidential elections.
API has now taken a decision to contact the American Embassy in Oslo, Norway as soon as possible in order to report the matter and hand over the evidence for investigative purposes.
The Chief editor is expected to travel to New York where he will appear on an interview in one of the shows that will air the tape.
Folks, I think we got a live one here.
Enough of the teasing and taunting!
Let's see that darn tape!!!
I ain’t teasing, but apparently David is willing to pay out!
The one that FOx apparently has now!
It is NOT a bribe—it’s just “SPREADING THE WEALTH AROUND”!
When the heck is it going to air?
What the heck is supposed to be on this tape?
If you believe API...will see...maybe.
Someone contact Fox....Damn we need verification or API needs to shut up...one of the two.
How can they be worse liars than Obama when they are only lying about one thing and Obama has been lying about a lot of things?
Thanks for the update Danae!
I was wondering what was going on with this!
Hell...I think they’d have paid more like 300 million to keep something like that silent...makes me go hmmmmm...
What the previously published article from API (also today) said was that the majority of the tape would be aired on FOXNews Channel in two parts during regularly scheduled programming at a time and date that will not be preannounced so the tape will be aired and that will not be able to be blocked or prevented by any person or group.
So far in this story ...the lawyer (Berg) who API says they hired doesnt seem to know them and Fox News says that they know nada about this....
Its off to a good start a good start
I think post 12 has the original link which first described what is supposedly on the tape which was in the possession of API.
I think there was more that came out later about what was on the tape.... some nations Michelle Obama told the API editor that Barack Obama would invite to the White House, first on the list being Iran’s president I think I remember hearing.
personally I think it is a different signal....the LA tape is real and more damaging...Another tape is somewhere and ole Axelrod just said...here is 3 mil not to release it which really means if an LA tape could surface...3 mil is just advertising costs....30 mil would close the deal.
hahah this seems like those nigerian money transfer emails i used to get all the time...same sentence structure and excuses and everything...I hope no one believes any of this garbage
Dear Barack Obama,
I have an extra copy of the API tape which I will destroy for only one million dollars in cash.
its just SPREADING THE WEALTH AROUND!
That got a real loud laugh out of me stockstrader!
Good one, and it’s good to remember Obama’s battle cry. Makes us cringe, when we see how it all works, yes?
“What the heck is supposed to be on this tape?”
Michelle Obama saying that Barack Obama was legally adopted by his Indonesian step-father (which negates an US citizenship he ever had if he ever did) and that she (& he?) are tired of the efforts of the hateful white racist American “right” to block her husband’s “ascension” to the Presidency.
No the whitey tape was different rumor that I think was started by Larry Johnson of No Quarter. The API tape is another rumor.
Ed Hale? Who is this guy?
I don’t think this is right. If he was born in Hawaii to an American mother, he’s a citizen and that’s the end of it.
The real news value of this tape seems to be what Michelle reportedly said on the phone (e.g. calling white conservatives “evil” and “racist,” stating that Obama was actually adopted by his stepfather, etc.). This sounds so much like her.
Hmmm....the Thursday before the election is coming up tomorrow. It should be fun. :)
I vote for is being a scam meant to distract.
Can you prove that in six days?
I smell something rat-like in aroma. But I can’t tell whether it’s a rat or what the heck it is. And I can’t tell from which ship they’re jumping out of either. Never-the-less, we still have 3 days for the “October Surprise” countdown.
African Press International - API strives to ensure that the information which it places on the Internet via the website is subjected to a careful check so that the information is up-to-date, accurate, factually correct and therefore reliable. Despite this continual attention for the quality of its reporting, API cannot guarantee that the information on its website is always correct or complete.
Ah, thanks. I just checked your link in post 12. But like the other rumor back in June, it’s still not something to get excited about unless they actully produce the evidence.
It also provides additional details Michelle Obama provided to the editor of the African American Press about some of the foreign affair plans Obama has planned.
The tape is reported to be 52 (perhaps it was 54) minutes in length, and FOX is reported to be planning to air around 35 minutes or so of the conversation.
I read in one of the earlier posts that the portions of the tape that will remain unaired are due to 1.) national security concerns and also 2.) concerns as to what some of the words might do to incite difficulties on election day.
There is no tape. API is full of sh^%$#t, and their 15 minutes are about to be over.
Can you prove that in six days?I have a feeling we'll see it in about 24 business hours. :)
Correct, if Obama had US citizenship when he was adopted (assuming he was adopted by his Indonesian stepfather), then he kept his US citizenship. The Supreme Court is quite adamant on this point. Unless a naturalized citizen has lied on his citizenship application (i.e. Auschwitz guards who forgets to mention that part of his resume), it is impossible for an American to involuntarily lose his citizenship. Otherwise, An adult citizen can only lose his citizenship if he voluntarily appears at a US consulate abroad and renounces his US citizenship.
No evidence Obama ever did that as an adult or a child (a minor’s renunciation would be ignored by Uncle Sam anyway for want of maturity).
Sorry Mojave, but times are tough. I will destroy it for $500,000.00
What evidence do you have that anyone from the Obama campaign offered API any money at all? Only more b.s. from API.
Please. There is no reason to believe anything spouted from API. Let me guess, you answer those Nigerian emails promising you 30% of $25 million that was left hidden away by the late Minister of Mines, right?
btw, I’ve got a nice bridge to sell you, for less than $3 million.
Oh, I agree with you that the LA tape, if it exists, will be damning.
You know, speaking of that LA tape, did that really surprise anyone anyway about this candidate? It did not surprise me to hear the content of what is supposedly in that reported tape. Obama has not hidden his feelings in this area.
I am not sure yet if that LA tape is MORE damaging than the tape which API has though. We have not heard the tape as yet, and only a fraction of it has been published so far. However, when we see a potential first lady (if Obama were to be voted in) talking about foreign affairs and welcoming Iran into our White House in AMERICA, then I would say that is pretty damaging.
And we don’t even know what else in there in that tape. It was 50 plus minutes long!
This is the AP Chief in the comments section or supposedly him and there are some that are eating this stuff up, lol:
Do not take this light folks. I have a family that I love very much.
I am scared now. But at the same time, I am confident the lawyer wiill be of support immediately he arrives hers. thank God, I am telling myself what have I put myself into. I now wish she never called me!!!!!!
I am scared folks! It is not a joke. I know. and I feel it in my heart.
The money issue started with ED 10 days ago and I never understood it. I posted all the emails about the money on the site at the time. Now I see where we are heading to - bribe or intimidation.
Soon my Fox people must say something in support of me. This is what i need now.
Chief Editor Korir
well separating the two tapes, this is a fact....Obama cannot prove he was born.
this has all been very intriguing to say the least...Kinda like watching the OJ trial.
I know I know.
If he immigrated to Indonesia he would have lost US citizenship.
