Gingrich Divorce Papers Magically Appear In Media Hands (Sealed records)
Human Events ^ | December 27, 2011 | John Hayward

Posted on 12/27/2011 9:06:53 AM PST by Smokeyblue

To this day, Barack Hussein Obama remains a man of mystery. Copious amounts of documentation from his early life and academic career have never been released. It took years of pressure, plus Donald Trump as the ringmaster of a media circus, just to see his birth certificate.

When the L.A. Times obtained a potentially embarrassing videotape of Obama laughing it up at a party for Arafat minion Rashid Khalidi, the paper pursed its lips and fastidiously hid the tape from public view. Their newspaper account of the part didn’t even mention that domestic terrorist Friends of Obama Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn attended the event. Another important connection from Obama’s past, his long attendance at Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church of racial hatred, was carefully buried by the media until conservative radio hosts and bloggers dragged it into the open.

The rules for “vetting” are very different for Republican candidates. We’ve already seen murky allegations from Herman Cain’s past assigned a level of instant credibility that would never have been granted if he were a black Democrat. Even after a much more serious accusation of a long-running consensual affair caused Cain to suspend his campaign, we still don’t know exactly what the initial “sexual harassment” accusers complained about.

Now CNN has magically obtained the sealed records of Newt Gingrich’s first divorce. Here’s the wonderful story of how this Yuletide journalistic miracle came to pass:

Shazam! Those papers just popped right out of a clerk’s drawer, where they were supposedly tucked over fifteen years ago, to keep people from nosing around in them! Oh, the irony! Who knows what CNN might be able to discover about Barack Obama, if they bothered to look for some of his records with the intensity reserved for Republicans’ sealed divorce papers?

Let us not forget that within three days of Rick Perry entering the race his transcripts from Texas AM were miraculously on the front page of the New York Slimes.

When we complain about the quality of GOP candidates, we sometimes forget just how nasty, underhanded and corrupt the lefties are. Just ask Herman Cain. Who in their right mind would want to go through that process - unless their record is perfectly spotless (and who among us is perfect?).

From the article:

Your “you folks” comment is insulting. This is about destroying anyone who is not Obama or a democrat.

The same way that the L.A. Times published the confidential IRS tax return of gubenatorial candidate Bill Simon in 2002. The rats have their operatives inside the court houses and inside the IRS. It should not be too hard to find out who did this illegally. I will not hold my breath waiting for somebody to be fired for the leaking.

“..Looks like another Republican front runner has been foiled..”

::::::::::::::

Not necessarily. Now what is the media going to do with paper that provides inuendo? Who cares really? The standard Dem playbook is open — throw dirt on the opposition since we cannot talk about the damage we are deliberately doing to America — throw more dirt.

When does America get fed up with losers who cannot, and do not want to deliver for the American people and the country? When do people FINALLY realize who and what the Dems are and turn on them? When do they insist on Obama being vetted?

This election is the Republicans to lose. But the Republican establishment (choke) and a couple of strong candidates are going to have to stand up and face the criminals led by Obama, et al and tell the media where to go with their complicit crime.

Time for the first big lawsuit against the media — lots to work with here.

Courtesy of David Axelrod. In fact, I would bet money on it. During Obama’s Congressional campaign, Axelrod got a California judge to unseal his opponent’s divorce records and then leaked them to the media.

Ann Coulter basically predicted this sort of thing when she tied the anti-Cain M.O. to David Axelrod. She specifically tied him to other divorce papers magically appearing and causing Republicans to stumble.

WE never saw his Birth Certificate!

That was a long form ABSTRACT!!!!

Why the hell do you guys consistently and regularly assert facts which do not exist?

That whole dog and pony show was a sleight of hand and if you go back and look at the damned thing you will see it says abstract on it....Again, like the 1st one.

As for Newt’s “Sealed” records, score another round for team Obama.

Weird the way those guys can at everyone’s sealed records but no one can at Barry’s past.

There's just something about Obama and sealed divorce records.

Isn't this exactly how he got to be junior senator from Illinois?

His opponents sealed divorce records were mysteriously leaked right before the election?

We seem to have a one-trick pony jackass around here somewhere...

MSM will try to destroy all Republicans (even Mitt eventually). But, no other candidate provides a target rich environment like Newt.

It has not been a good week for Newt. Santorum (as boring as he is) looks better by the day.

From http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2011-11-09.html -

The reason all this is relevant is that both Axelrod and Daley have a history of smearing political opponents by digging up claims of sexual misconduct against them.

John Brooks, Chicago's former fire commissioner, filed a lawsuit against Daley six months ago claiming Daley threatened to smear him with sexual harassment accusations if Brooks didn't resign. He resigned -- and the sexual harassment allegations were later found to be completely false.

Meanwhile, as extensively detailed in my book "Guilty: Liberal 'Victims' and Their Assault on America," the only reason Obama became a U.S. senator -- allowing him to run for president -- is that David Axelrod pulled sealed divorce records out of a hat, first, against Obama's Democratic primary opponent, and then against Obama's Republican opponent.

One month before the 2004 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, Obama was way down in the polls, about to lose to Blair Hull, a multimillionaire securities trader.

But then The Chicago Tribune -- where Axelrod used to work -- began publishing claims that Hull's second ex-wife, Brenda Sexton, had sought an order of protection against him during their 1998 divorce proceedings.

From then until Election Day, Hull was embroiled in fighting the allegation that he was a "wife beater." He and his ex-wife eventually agreed to release their sealed divorce records. His first ex-wife, daughters and nanny defended him at a press conference, swearing he was never violent. During a Democratic debate, Hull was forced to explain that his wife kicked him and he had merely kicked her back.

Hull's substantial lead just a month before the primary collapsed with the nonstop media attention to his divorce records. Obama sailed to the front of the pack and won the primary. Hull finished third with 10 percent of the vote.

Luckily for Axelrod, Obama's opponent in the general election had also been divorced.

The Republican nominee was Jack Ryan, a graduate of Dartmouth and Harvard law and business schools, who had left his lucrative partnership at Goldman Sachs to teach at an inner-city school on the South Side of Chicago.

Who in their right mind would want to go through that process - unless their record is perfectly spotless (and who among us is perfect?).

Who would want to go through that process--especially if their record was perfectly spotless. That won't stop the dung mills of the MSM from flinging poo in every direction in hopes that by the mere repeated mention of allegations they would become 'fact' in the public psyche. (AKA: The Big Lie).

It worked with Cain because none who embraced other candidates were willing to demand solid proof, just the same way they refused to dig a little into apparent Bachmann gaffes and find out that what she said was, in fact, often correct. Instead, the meme was propagated that she did not know what she was talking about, to her great disservice.

Unfortunately, the effect of that is that those whose ox has been gored will tend to just sit back and eat popcorn until the field has been cleared (That's the Chicago Way--how Obama got his Senate Seat to start with).

Then we'll all be paddling the same poo bucket with a loser for a candidate, just like the stinking Liberals (MSM again) wanted it.

It worked in '08, even if the nice lady from Alaska made it a much closer race.

they can and will continue to do so until someone in the GOP has the balls to stand up against them and the rest of the criminal liberal media for their bias, hypocrisy and criminal ways....

hopefully Gingrich follows through on all of the above and files a suit...

Take your “you folks” comment and stuff it.....

Cain destroyed Cain, and he lit that fire long before the bimbo explosions.

Face it, your guy was incompetent and wasn’t fit for the job (”got a lot swirling around in my head.”), and in the end, he finally had to admit to himself that he wasn’t going to be able to b/s his way into the White House, so he quit.

GO NEWT GO......

I totally agree with you. We need a fighter. Someone who does not fall under the great pressure. Someone who is not calling Obama decent like McCain did. Newt is the only one calling Obama a radical. The only one who pointed out GE. He calls Obama the food stamp president. Is he perfect? No. But he will not wither in the face of these attacks. Even if he were perfect, they would crucify him just as they did Sarah Palin.
