Free Republic Rocks Nancy Pelosi's World With Scoop on Threat to 9/11 Mosque Opponents
Wednesday, August 18, 2010 | Kristinn

Posted on 08/18/2010 7:44:12 PM PDT by kristinn

Free Republic rocked Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) world by breaking the story about her menacing comments calling for the investigation of critics of the location of the Cordoba House mosque planned for the neighborhood of the World Trade Center site of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks on New York City.

Two San Francisco media outlets reported on Pelosi's press conference where she made the remarks, but neither one saw fit to report them. Fortunately one of those outlets, KCBS, posted an audio recording. The other, the San Francisco Chronicle, posted a video that had bad audio rendering the menacing comments inaudible.

I had posted the Chronicle article which highlighted Pelosi appearing to dodge the issue by saying it was a local zoning issue for New Yorkers to decide. Afterward I found the audio file at KCBS and listened to it. When I heard Pelosi say the things that weren't being reported I knew this was something that was potentially explosive. So I transcribed the relevant parts, wrote up an article and posted it to Free Republic at 10:21 p.m. EDT.

Soon after the Washington Times picked up the story and from there it went to Twitter and then to other sites like Atlas Shrugged and Breitbart.

The story percolated over night in the blogosphere and on Twitter until the Washington Times report hit the Drudge Report--first as a headline and then as the lead story with a banner headline and a photo of Pelosi that stayed up most of the day.

Pelosi's threat was reported by the major political sites like The Hill, The Washington Examiner and Politico, as well as NRO, Hot Air and Powerline. The story also dominated talk radio shows including Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck.

By early afternoon when Pelosi issued a clarifying statement that reiterated her call to investigate the mosque critics, it was too late to soften the blowblack.

That didn't stop the mainstream media from trying. The AP, AFP, the Washington Post and other mainstream media wrote their first articles about Pelosi's comments after she released her clarification. What was missing from most of the articles though was reactions from 9/11 families and others to Pelosi's threats.

An exception was WCBS in New York which posted a story with the scathing headline: 9/11 Families: Pelosi Has Lost Her Mind.

The Hill was nearly alone in reporting on Rep. Peter King's (R-NY) response calling Pelosi's comments a threat to 9/11 families.

The Hill was also virtually alone in reporting Rep. Dan Lundgren's (R-CA) rebuke of Pelosi.

Thanks to Free Republic, millions of Americans became aware today of Pelosi's totalitarian threat to investigate them and put her on the defensive.

I've posted this not to pat myself on the back or to get attaboys, but to show how valuable is Free Republic. Without a Freeper taking the time to dig a little deeper in the story, Pelosi most likely would have gotten away with her threat.

Other Freepers, like Buckhead and icwhatudo to name two, have profoundly affected the national political landscape with their posts on Free Republic.

As we approach the critical November elections, vigilant resourceful Freepers will be needed now more than ever to root out what the politicians and the mainstream media don't want us to know.

Looks like she will have to have Reid investigated. Heh. What a slut. Really all incumbents deserve to be put in prison for completely avoiding obama social security fraud and eligibility fruad: “obama’s Selective Service System registration, 61-1125539-1 was verified by entering his last name, DOB: Aug. 4, 1961, and Social Security number 042-68-4425, a number issued in Connecticut between 1976 and 1979 to an individual born in 1890″ Evidence from a Hawaiin election official: “The former Honolulu elections clerk [Tim Adams] who says President Obama was “definitely” not born in Hawaii and has no birth certificate from any hospital in the Aloha State says he’s willing to testify in court to those facts. “The things I’ve said, I don’t mind testifying in court,” Tim Adams, the senior elections clerk for the city and county of Honolulu in the 2008 campaign, said in an exclusive interview. ….and an absolute MOUNTAIN of other evidence. I have written and called burr and hagan and get the same “there is no evidence that obama is not eligible” and, get this, burr has in his letter “even if you don’t believe the birth certificate…because obama’s mother was a citizen, barack obama is a citizen” Now this is a u.s. senator from the great state of North Carolina telling me obama is qualified because he is a citizen! Not one mention of “Natural Born Citizen.” Seriously. I called hagan’s office and got Michael McSwain (real name?) who was clearly snickering as i read the above social security facts. At the end of it all, i asked mcswain if he would read the numbers back to make sure hagan got the right information, to which dear michael replied, “I didn’t write the numbers down.” I suggest keep the pressure on these two criminals and call their office(s) or write at their webpage at least with the above social security information and demand a response of what they are going to do about it. The social security information has been around a while, but i only recently discovered it. It is very powerful because the facts cannot be misconstrued with false logic or proportion like other obama fraud evidence. For example, people can argue endlessly that Tim Adams is “crazy as hell.” I’ve written to a number of cnn articles, etc. There isn’t much people can say when you present the social security information. Its funny….almost. They forged documents, altered computer passport records, sealed records, corrupted officals…….but they forgot to ‘handle’ the social security number. There is evidence obama used a completely different number as a u.s. senator, but i kept it to the one number because it was complete. I haven’t found the last four digits of the number obama used as a u.s. senator.

Well written and well done Kirstinn and other FReepers.

This is the most disturbing thing I’ve ever heard Pelosi say. The kindest explanation that is possible is that she has lost her senses.

The democrats appear to be melting down in public. The are lashing out at anything that moves. They are even trying to draw President Bush out of retirement to see if he can draw some fire away from them.

It’s frightening because I can’t help but wonder how vulnerable we are, right now, to another 9/11 or worse. The people running things are utterly incompetent, and seem to despise the population they represent.

Nice work Kristinn! I heard Rush mentioning it, with attribution to KCBS, but I suspect he picked it up via Drudge.

Words have meaning. There should be severe consequences for this sort of behavior.

It must have dawned on Pelosi that not only will she lose her office and perks but also that the GOP will have subpoena power.
