Gibbs isn’t doing well in his present position. Nope, not at all.

They should offer it to Bill Clinton.

Did he just call Major Garrett “Little League Major” Garrett at :39?

So.....
The WH sends out unsolicited (alleged) emails that some are claiming that they never requested via opt in. The question is: Do the WH, DNC and OFA share lists?
Naw, never.....

Let me guess. The WH uses moveon.org’s list, who uses Organizing for America/DNC, and then there is the FISHY list.

I played the video twice, one with sound, then on mute.

Watching Major Garret’s expressions tells you all you need to know.

No, he’s not. It’s pathetic, childish, thuggish behavior for all to see, never mind obvious incompetence. AKA the Chicago way. It just flat out doesn’t work on a national scale.

Do we finally have someone with the jeuvos to ask the tough questions in “Major Garret”?

Gibbs is a joke! I think Major was on to something. Can’t figure out if Organizing for America is lending their mailing list to the White House, or the White House is using the emails received from flag@whitehouse.gov to outsource their propaganda crap.
Not that there’s really a difference between the two scenarios.

Yup. That's what he said. Along with the nervous laugh, I think Gibbs was the one getting needled.

Is there a law against compiling a list or sending out emails from the WH about health care?

Ashamed to admit my ignorance here: I've gather sharing that information is a no-no but I don't know specifically why. Is it a matter of privacy? I guess I just assumed they shared such information.

Trying to get a straight answer from anybody in the Obummer administration or an Obummer supporter is like pulling teeth. They hem and haw, sputter, and never do wind up answering the occasional tough questions they do get. This administration has the most liars and dumbasses in positions of power than any other presidential administration in American history.

What’s the current law on Spam? Axelrod is spamming people over healthcare.

This is a hot issue . There should be an investigation as to whether they are using addresses from the Flag mail or what.

At least one person on FR said that they made a separate account for flag@.

He received an email from axlerod two days later from that account.

There are others here who never contacted flag@ and have received emails.

Thinking out of the box...Soros has a lot of money. Rupert Murdock has a lot more and owns a lot of the media. Could this become a Murdock vs Soros event?

He did say that. But what is so strange is that Gibbs will NOT SAY that the White House, btw-OUR WHITE HOUSE (which seems to now be an arm of the DNC, and I want to know who is paying for all of the website personnel, etc, because it is totally partisan)-HAS NEVER SENT UNSOLICITED EMAILS.

The WH (Exec Branch) is under special rules concerning comms. They have to keep track of everything. The snitch list is a big one. So, if they have a list, they have to say how they got it. If it came about by outside sources (outside the gov’t), then they have, at least, a little embarrassing problem.

The anti-spam law for one. Second is the propaganda factor. Third it is illegal for the White House to collect peoples names and contact info.

Its also illegal for them to destroy any emails.

Could these emails be implied threats? It sends a message that the WH got your email in its “snitch” program. It’s like saying, “We know who you are, and we know where you live.”

In any case Major Garrett called Gibbs bluff. He got permission from the people who got some of these emails.

Major is now waiting for Gibbs to get back to him now to explain how the names got onto axlerods list.

The Fox lawyer whos on Glenn Beck a lot explained why this is illegal for the White House to do. BO seems to care little for our Constitution, why would he care about lowly laws like this one.
