Malia in Mexico story vanishing from the Web
Times247 ^ | 3/19/12 | Eric Ritz

Posted on 03/19/2012 5:59:15 PM PDT by lward99

Have you heard that Malia Obama, the president’s daughter, is reportedly spending her spring break in Oaxaca, Mexico?

Allegedly, she’s jetting off with some of her classmates and 25 Secret Service agents to a country that the State Department has said all Americans should avoid. But something is different about the latest “Obama vacation controversy:” references to it are disappearing from the Internet — and fast.

The Secret Service is calling lots of editors, producers, and blogmasters and making offers they can’t refuse.

Isn’t she a little young to be spending Spring Break in a foreign country? Is she chaperoned? (other than the SS)

Of these sites, the only one to state a reason for the change was “Free Republic,“ where the Admin wrote ”Leave the kids alone.”

Hmmmmm....

Will THIS Free Republic post be removed? It’s not “the kids” that we’re “targeting;” it’s this insane, hypocritical, communist regime.

The article on her visit has been nuked several times on FR today.

I just typed into google:
malia obama, mexico

I got thousands of hits. Page after page.

Question? Did anyone else go on Spring Break trips when they were 13? I thought this was a college thing

"Will THIS Free Republic post be removed?"

Wouldn't surprise me. I just noticed that a thread I posted some comments on earlier today has been removed. I wonder how many others were pulled.

I also did a search and get lots of hits. However if you actually click on them many no longer take to you the story. If you search FR only one article comes up on this topic from International Business Times. Click on the link and the story is gone.

Interesting...

I don’t have a problem with the story being scrubbed. It detailed which hotel she is staying at, how many friends were with her, etc. Mexico is overrun with violence and there is no need to advertise information about Malia that might endanger her life.

Sorry, the Secret Service could have moved her. Whitewashing the press is simply a violation of the Constitution and the Freedom of the Press. Dictatorship is here.

Moving her costs money and is not a trivial undertaking. Publishing such details is a danger to her security. She’s a child and doesn’t deserve to have the press reporting her every move.

We got a lot of very bad attention for posting pics of her the LAST time she was wearing a peace-sign t-shirt in public, with a sullen expression, in a foreign country.

Better to keep her photos off of FR, frankly. I don't know why her dear daddy wants her exposed like this--he keeps bringing his kids into his fights, like when he went after Rush Limbaugh for that Flucker person. "I want ___ and ___ to be able to express their opinions without being called names." I don't think that's how it reads in the first amendment.

Obama gets more sordid and loathsome every day. And you'd think Michelle would know better than to allow it, but her supply of Wagyu beef may rely on hubby's reelction.

Go to Breitbart if you want pictures. This seems really irresponsible on the part of the child's parents.

She's wearing the same peace-sign t shirt she wore the last time there was this controversy...

If it were a once in a 4 yr jaunt, I would not be so concerned. On the other hand, every 3-6 weeks its another million dollar vacation to a foreign clime and place, without a parent and another JTF formed to escort them to who knows where. As if a vacation in the White House isn’t a special place in and of itself.

They spend more time overseas than here in the US.

I was in Oaxaca (city) a couple of weeks ago and it’s a wonderful place and quite safe. If this disappears from the web, it’s only because Bambi doesn’t want to call attention to how much money his family is spending having fun in various parts of the globe.

I bet the Mexicans in Oaxaca hated this, btw. It wouldn’t have brought them any tourist dollars, it would have shut down the old city (which has colonial streets but modern traffic), and as usual it made Bambi and family look like arrogant freaks.

Mexico is not dangerous unless you happen to be selling cocaine or trying to trans-ship marijuana to the US, or are a decent Mexican unfortunate enough to live in one of the areas where these have become normal activities.

There’s no threat to Baby Bambi Malia’s security. If this is not being publicized, it’s simply because Obama doesn’t want any more attention called to the tax-payer funded jet-setting ways of the Caudillo and his sacred family.

>>Horesh*t. I’m not complaining about anything. The minor children of ALL politicians should be off limits.<<

teh one brought them into the conversation... He said they should not be infected with pregnancy and should be able to remove that infection. And he recently compared them to the fluke slut.

Now, the taxpayers are paying for a junket for a 13-yo that any normal parent would never allow. But these “parents” have the audacity to wag their fingers at people who DARE to send their kids to school without previously FDA-analyzed food. It is better to have a staff chef, like they do.

It is barry and moochele who inserted their kids into the discussion. ALL discussions. No one needed to go and find and attack them (as did the msm with the Bush twins).

I would almost make a bet that one of the kids in that high dollar school she goes to has parents or family in Mexico and she is accompanying her, and of course like her mother. taking all taking of the others there too.

I certainly don’t have a problem with a story reporting the amount of taxpayer money and resources that are spent on Malia’s vacations. However, were I reporting such a story, I would leave out details about where she’s currently staying, how many friends and SS agents are with her, etc. that might endanger her security.

When she’s home safe & sound, then it might be appropriate to detail that stuff as it relates to taxpayer expense.
