Mainstream media, still suffering debilitating effects from Obamamania, have never properly vetted Barack Obama’s past, never fully investigated his relationships with left-wing anarchists such as Saul Alinsky, or even hard-core criminals like John Edwards for that matter.
Because Obama is to the far left of Moscow on most issues, and is also a man of color, media folks at progressive non-think stink tanks such as the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, and ABC, and a host of others, have decided that vetting an alleged Messiah would violate their Journalistic code of ethics and professionalism.
Separation of church and press, you know?
In other words, liberal politicians don't need no stinkin' vetting!
Which is why the leftist media have all but ignored Obama’s past, concentrating instead on Mitt Romney’s association with Mormonism and the shameful history of that religion from some 150 years ago!
However, perhaps the arrogant insolence of the US leftist media will come back to haunt these vultures for their refusal to investigate and report the facts during the 2008 coronation of King Barack?
Indeed, hope springs eternal and the hope for truth about Obama is getting a severe push(shove!) to the right what with new allegations concerning the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, celebrated pastor for 20 years to the One, Barack Hussein Obama, and author of the Infamous "God DAMN America!" straight quote from the pulpit.
As reported at the reference, a late-blooming firestorm surrounding the Wrongs of Wright is showing signs of igniting into a campaign issue.
It has to do with the possibility that Obama, or his team of anti-transparency goons and campaign lunatics, may have secured Wright’s silence with $150,000 in 2008:
The story from the reference:
There's a difference of opinion among Republicans about the wisdom of introducing the Rev. Jeremiah Wright issue into the presidential campaign. A lot of top GOP strategists think it's a bad -- a very bad -- idea. "Frankly, trying to dredge up Jeremiah Wright ... was stupid," Karl Rove said Sunday on Fox News, referring to reports a GOP ad man had suggested a Wright ad to a pro-Republican super-PAC. "I thought it was very smart for the Romney campaign to immediately go out and denounce the tactic."
On the other hand, a lot of people in the Republican base still blame John McCain for not using Wright against Barack Obama back in 2008. Now, they would like to see the GOP attack the president over his 20-year relationship with the preacher best known for shouting, "God damn America."
Thinking practically, it's hard to see how a new attack ad featuring Rev. Wright would work.
But there is one subject concerning Wright that merits scrutiny. In a nearly three-hour interview with Ed Klein, author of the new book "The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House," Wright said that back in 2008, when he was at the center of a raging controversy over his sermons, a close friend of Obama's offered him money to shut up until after the November election.
In the interview, Wright said Dr. Eric Whitaker, a top official at the University of Chicago Hospitals, sent a note to Wright through an intermediary at Wright's Trinity United Church of Christ. "[Eric] sent it to one of the members, who sent it to me," Wright told Klein. "He sent it to one of the guys close to me, saying, 'Can you make this offer to Rev?'"
Wright said he has kept notes from his experience and keeps all his documents, including the note from Whitaker, in a cardboard box. According to Klein, the amount Whitaker offered Wright was $150,000.
Is Wright's version of the story correct? Did Whitaker actually make the offer Wright says he did? If so, did Obama know about it? And where would the money have come from? All are questions that deserve answers.
So the allegation is there: Wright says he was offered money by a close Obama friend to disappear at a key moment in the 2008 campaign. In what way is that not newsworthy?Immediate questions emerge to right-wing truth warriors:
A top Obama re-election official says the campaign will not comment on Wright's allegations, saying Klein's book is simply not credible. But listening to the recording, Wright said what he said. It is news.
So far, neither Whitaker nor the other players in this matter have answered questions about the allegation. That might change if those involved face constant questioning from the press. But so far, few news outlets seem interested.
Maybe Rev. Wright is over as a campaign issue. But he's still a news story.”
What did Obama know and when did he know it?
How much “Stimulus Money” was spent to silence the reprehensible Wright?
These are questions that MUST be pursued by that gaggle of unwilling journalists known as mainstream media!
Good luck with that, patriots!
