HHS Will "Muzzle the Media" During Tour of Immigrant Child Housing
National Review Online ^ | July 7, 2014 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 07/07/2014 2:30:06 PM PDT by Biggirl

Health and Human Services officials will allow reporters to visit a military facility housing some of the immigrant children who have arrived at the southern border in recent weeks, but only if the media promises not to record anything, not to ask any questions during the tour, and not to talk to any of the staff members or children.

And our pathetic excuse for a “free press” will allow this Soviet-style control? What a shame.

The turd media doesn’t have to be ‘muzzled’. They are willing accomplishes to the Obama tyranny.

And the MSM will go along with it, no problem.

Any reporter that takes the initiative to get the story will be marginalized.

IOW, they want the media there, but not if they act like a “real” media.

Got it.

C’mon media, you are being played as fools. You’re nothing but useful idiots for this regime. Start reporting facts about this enemy of the U.S.

And the point of them going will be what?

May as well not bother.

Besides, why does the MSM get to go in while a Congressman gets locked out?

My guess why HHS is so cloak and dagger...They are training the kids for a trip to meet the emperor by having them learn the song from 2008 in the beginning of this video... But at the end of this video... We see what has really happened, and is happening.

No wonder they don't want any questions asked.

And you know how they would have responded to a Republican administration making these demands.

Sure. Every news program and MSNBC talking head show would be setting up a remote right in the middle of the "forbidden zone." The anchors, and all the guests, would wear bulletproof vests and Kevlar head masks to protect themselves from "Republican snipers." They would explain this every minute or so.

How 'bout a nice big bowl of head lice? And, since you're the media, we can put a large serving of scabbies on the side.

WAIT! Don't run off media. We're also having a giveaway with FREE bedbugs. Guaranteed to breed!

*only if the media promises not to record anything, not to ask any questions during the tour, and not to talk to any of the staff members or children.*

In other works, don’t bother showing up.
Write the usual Leftist misinformation and await further instructions.

We’ll tell you how to report the news, or if you’re allowed to report it.

Thank you for posting this article. But, there is more now from Rep. Bridenstine and his office. He has put the government on notice that he will have recurring visits, some with other Congressmen, with journalists, and upon no notice. He expects to be admitted with respect and without delay or interference.

Normally that would make the media suspicious, but I guess everything's OK for them if the Prez is a Dem.

I don’t care if noone ever visits these ‘facilities’. I dont care how they are housed. They should simply be insisting that the illegals be sent home. Yes, I guess I am heartless but at this point I simply don’t give a hoot about any of them.

I hope that you — as well as all other FReepers — have called your respective Congressmen to demand — in a civil and polite way — that these illegal invaders be sent home.

Yeah, 'cause it's worked so well for us in the past...

The only thing those traitorous bastards in DC respond to is the threat to their power and control...it's time to start showing them the door like folks did to Cantor...long past time.

MEDIA!!!??? There’s no media on this tour. It is a cavalcade of sycophants sniffing Obama’s pants.

What is Obama cooking up? He is milking this for maximum political ammunition.

I would not be surprised if there is a terrible outbreak of something deadly and incurable he can use to bash republicans for the mid-terms and show the death and mayhem to the rest of the world because republicans don’t grab their ankles (more than they have) and give him EVERYTHING Obama wants. Of course the low-fos have no idea that border security funding has NOTHING to do with amnesty. It is this much of a mess because Obama has REFUSED to secure the border.

I keep hearing this “refuge” term thrown around. WRONG LIBERALS!!! Mexico is a member of the Refugee Treaty of the UN from back in the 50s. If they cross in to Mexico MEXICO is to care for them. NOPE. They are like the Palestinians. No one wants them but they sure make good political battering rams.

Do it your way. But, if I said to them what I want to say, I would not come off as a reasonable person, and the listener would write me off as a right-wing extremist and not put much stock in my opinion.

But telling them that I feel sorry for the illegals and wish that I really could help them makes them see that I am not heartless or hateful. When I called I just explained, the way I would in talking to a child, that we just cannot afford to take in and help all of the world’s poor.

I know exactly what you mean, especially considering the fact that I have two Rat senators.

But I keep hoping that if all of the congressmen keep getting a steady stream of calls from reasonable-sounding, well-spoken people they will do something to stop the Soros agenda even if it’s just to keep us from giving them the tar-and-feather treatment.
