Soros lived in Chicago?
Here’s the thing. I was really upset by Obama’s re-election, I still am and will be until he’s gone. But as I attempted to step back from that, I came to the realization that at some point in time, he was going to do something that would be the equal to Fonzi’s jumping the shark moment. He is extremely arrogant and that will be his very undoing. I honestly don’t expect him to finish this term and I believe he will end up leaving of his own accord. He has the potentials to do a lot of damage, but what he doesn have on his side is time.
...knew exactly what the poster implied and I share the sentiment. Andrew is missed so very much.
He might have files full of detailed info and dirt on this administration which are in the hands of numerous people to be published openly upon something possibly happening to him. Regardless, he should take any 'threat' from the Chicago gang seriously.
Probably Adolf Axelfraud..Obama has threatened everyone in America if they don’t support his agenda..that is what Obama does, he threatens people, and when he doesn’t get his way, he has them killed
I’m with you! Just not buying this yet.
Time will tell ~
I don’t think it is a small thing that Woodward spoke out on this before cuts, or reductions in rt of growth, even go into effect. I reckon his integrity trumps his political inclinations. Rare bird these days.
His peers, and many of them doubtless admirerers, must be tormented by his move.
Love to be a fly on the wall in the white house; this Woodward slapdown is damaging to them and there must be much running about in circles screaming and shouting. I suspect a cigarette might be sneaked now and again, too. And still more desperate plotting while knowing in the back of their wicked little minds they may well have already overplayed their crisis hand. Not much in the way of political deserts these days, but I am savoring this dish.
He spilled every name during Watergate. Why so quiet now Bob?
if woodward had the same balls he had with nixon, he’d release te email unredacted. i’d freaking file charges, threatening reporters.
probably the best guess. her ego has its own office.
I wanna see this headline on the MSM websites before I get too excited...
The LSM is dead.
Honey, you know nothing about 'hell' or you wouldn't be trying to destroy Israel and the Jews. And you'd stop playing footsies with terrorists, the Muz Bros and Nutjob.
i swear everytime i see jarrett it looks like farrakhan in a wig.
I wanna see this headline on the MSM websites before I get too excited...The tweet this thread is featuring was posted (on Twitter) at 5:40 CDT and an hour later, has over 330 retweets... it's moving right along on Twitter anyway...
Don’t know but Jarrett grew up there. Sadly Jarrett wouldn’t confess in the below excerpt:)
“Jarrett responded I actually met with George Soros with the president and had a very interesting conversation with him a couple of years ago. Thats like four or five things that you were going to ask me about instead of just three.”
She can't help it, she's an Iranian - the kind that likes the mullahs.
One year ago, this Friday.
I'm sure it'll be the lead story on "Morning Joe" tomorrow...
Bwahhhahaha! Sorry, couldn't keep a straight face there...
I’m old enough to remember sitting with my grandmother watching the Watergate hearings all summer like it was a soap opera. I remember Woodward back then and found him more respectable somehow than Bernstein, but that’s neither here nor there.
The point is- Woodward is a lib- but not of the sort we see these days, he has a certain kind of independence that is frowned upon by D.C. now. For him to say the kinds of things he’s been saying recently he must be honestly disenchanted by this president and administration and apparently shocked.
This is NOT someone who will fall in line like BO’s other media people. I think for Woodward to have gone public with this indicates he is REALLY worried- not necessarily about himself or his reputation/family etc...but about America. He’s telling us the character of the people running our nation.
I just hope Woodward is smart enough to have a set up
where if anything happens to him, files get sent all
over the country.
... and is he ever missed!!!
I think it's a big deal because Woodward is a patron saint of leftist journalists. He's they guy who makes it okay to have an agenda, okay to be about "making a difference" rather than just reporting the facts. He took out Nixon!
But now he's saying that Obama is saying things that are unprecedented and outrageous. This is a real slap in the face to the press, who are underplaying it all and even supporting it. It's like Woodward is saying "Reporters can't be only about making a difference, sometimes you have to tell the truth." They may toe the line now, but I'm sure this makes it harder to be totally compliant tools.
Of all people, I think without a shadow of a doubt he is that smart, and THAT's what scares the bejesus out of this administration.
He can deliver up people to destroy Woodward with no problem at all.
However, it was either Jerrett or another lackey like Goobama hissef' who sent the untraceable email.
Time to wake up, Bob.
Hmmmm...At the top left of Drudge there’s a tease:
“POLITICO: Exclusive Details... Developing...”
I wonder IF that is the name of whoever sent the email?
Timing is important. The message to the LSM is it’s okay to say the Emperor has no clothes.
The bell is rung, release the hounds!
“Also, none of his liberal friends will help him. They will be part of the burial party.”
Sorry but I disagree. Most of today’s journalists were weaned on Woodward and Bernstein. They were the second coming to liberal professors and I think the dam has broken.
So long as John Brennan dines close to the little barry bastard, men like Woodward have lives that hang by a thread. And the thugocracy wants that well understood, and that’s why taking out Breitbart in such an auspicious way was useful to their agenda.
It seems Woodwards saying hes not seen MADNESS like this administration displays in a long time...has hit the mark.
Looks like it certainly has hit the mark, SE Mom. Thanks for the heads up on this one.
Pinging more FRiends here...
Have you seen any of that which Breitbart claimed to have sett up, since he was taken out by the regime? No guarantees when it comes to the level of intel and criminality Brennan types bring to the scene.
Those are interesting insights. I personally believe he thought he could tear down America and rebuild it in his own socialist image, but he has just recently been thwarted by millions and millions of Americans stocking up on guns and ammo. He cannot finish his plans without disarming the patriots and the thought is driving him a little nuts. IMHO...
Obama is a sock puppet.
And there is the $64 question.
We will discover just who among the Washington press corps still has pretenses of being a "journalist"...and who has resolved themselves to serve the administration as a "propagandist". And, of course, a third group -- who won't take a public position because they are gutless.
Personally, I don't expect a lot of action on the "journalist" side of the street.
*March 1st, it will have been a year without Andrew!:-(
We need to put this issue to rest. Meet me in Fort Marcy Park at 4:00am. Come alone.
Understand that some members of the Washington Press Corps were already demeaning Woodward because he was publicizing that the sequester was Obama's idea. Ezra Klein, a fellow Postee has been particularly nasty.
This may well resolve itself into a generational dispute among the Washington Press Corps -- the older types who remember that it was all about "reporting" vs the younger class that are involved in "influencing public opinion".
This is more the style of Axelgreasy ... Jarret would designate someone to make the threat rather than do it herself. She’s smarter than Axelgreasy, just as evil, but smarter.
I seem to recall a certain high profile media person saying they were threatened with ruin if they aired questions regarding little barry bastard boy’s eligibility before the election. That had Axelrod’s ass-print all over it ...
He should make it public if he wants to be believed.
The current Democratic Party line on this thing is that Woodward is old, washed-up, senile, and should retire. In other words, they’re acting like a good little bunch of totalitarian propagandists by impugning the messenger.
I don't think anyone even got a hangnail, never mind that nobody died, unlike Obama with Fast and Furious...or Bengazi.
A prayer Woodward Roars!
That’s two reporters acting like reporters... this is good...
