PRESS BILL PRESS to EARN his PRESS CREDENTIALS

UPDATE: 07.07.12

© 2010 jbjd

Bill Press, assuming the guise of a legitimate reporter, has gotten away with perpetrating that sham long enough. It’s time someone who knows better – like you – called him out for merely putting his mouth where his money is.

I only began noticing Bill Press on account of this fabricated exchange he initiated with WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs at a White House press briefing on July 27, 2009. (I have seen no videos that showed Mr. Press signaling he had a question; but undoubtedly, Mr. Gibbs did call on him to ask a question and, he undoubtedly did ask the question.) (As the video below clearly shows, notwithstanding Mr. Press asked the question and received an extended answer; for some reason, he kept his reporter’s notepad wedged firmly under his arm throughout the exchange.)

BP: Robert, I hate to bring this up but somebody has to.

RB: Uh oh.

BP: Is there anything you can say that will make the Birthers go away?

RG: No.

BP: Are you gonna try?

RG: No. I mean, the God’s honest truth is no. I mean, Bill, let’s understand this. And I almost hate to indulge in such as august setting as the White House – and I mean this in seriousness – the White House briefing room discussing the made-up fictional nonsense of whether or not the President was born in this country. A year-and-a-half ago, I asked that the birth certificate be put on the internet. Because Lord knows, if you got a birth certificate, and you put it on the internet, what else could be the story? Here’s the deal, Bill. If I had some DNA, it wouldn’t assuage those that don’t believe he was born here. But I have news for them and for all of us. The President was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, the 50th state of the greatest country on the face of the earth. He’s a citizen. But I have no doubt that Lester will ask me soon and that I will receive e-mail…

But no, nothing will assuage them. But there are 10,000 more important issues for people in this country to discuss rather than whether or not the President is a citizen when it’s been proven ad nauseum.

(At this point, Helen Thomas calls out a question, out of turn.)

HT: Why do you think it keeps coming up?

RG: Because for $15, you can get an internet address and say whatever you want.

You can watch that exchange here (beginning at 28:57). (Note: clicking on the closed caption button below the image on YouTube opens a window that displays written text at the bottom on the screen, as well as the identity of the questioner. The WH web site also provides the transcript, but it does not attribute the questions. http://www.whitehouse.gov/the_press_office/Briefing-by-White-House-Press-Secretary-Robert-Gibbs-7-27-09/)

You may have heard of Bill Press; but there is a lot more to the man than meets the eye. Here is the biography posted on the web site of one of his employers, Tribune Media Services.

Bill Press is host of the nationally-syndicated “Bill Press Show” on talk radio. His show is heard in all 50 states on Sirius Satellite Radio, from 6 to 9 a.m. EST. The “Bill Press Show” is also syndicated nationwide by Jones Radio Networks in over 40 major media markets, including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Reno, Phoenix, Denver, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Chicago, Buffalo and Washington, D.C. His weekly liberal commentary is syndicated by Tribune Media Services.

Press is a well-known political commentator and frequently appears on radio and television. He was co-host of MSNBC’s “Buchanan and Press,” a debate show hosted with Pat Buchanan. Prior to joining MSNBC, Press spent six years with CNN hosting “Crossfire” and the “Spin Room” with Tucker Carlson.

Press began his career as a political commentator in Los Angeles on KABC-TV from 1980 to 1989, when he ran for statewide political office. Press offered nightly political commentary on the 5 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts. In January 1991, Press joined KCOP-TV in Los Angeles as a political commentator for the station’s 10 p.m. newscast. He traveled extensively, even conducting an exclusive Belgrade interview with Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic.

From 1987-1989, on KABC Radio in Los Angeles, Press co-hosted “The Dueling Bills,” a daily two-hour debate, with co-host Bill Pearl, on current events. He hosted “Bill Press: True American” on KFI-AM and was a regular weekend talk-show host on KFI-AM from 1991-1996.

Press is the author of three books: “Spin This!”, “Bush Must Go” and “How The Republicans Stole Religion.” His fourth book, “Trainwreck,” will be published by John Wiley & Sons in spring 2008. Press has received numerous awards for his work, including four Emmys and a Golden Mike Award. In 1992, the Associated Press named him Best Commentator of the Year.

Press received a B.A. in philosophy from Niagara University and S.T.B. in theology from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland.

(UPDATE: 07.07.12: Of course, as you can see; this Tribune bio contains no reference to Press’ 3-year stint as Chair of the CA D party. But here’s a bio which includes that information. ECPT, Chicago’s Progressive Talk.)

Whoa! Former Chair of the California Democratic Party? Four Emmys and a Golden Mike Award? AP’s Best Commentator of the Year? Impressive, right?

So, now that you know Bill Press is an award winning news commentator and interviewer, and Democratic power broker and insider; and given your extensive knowledge about the myth of the ‘birth-certificate-cum-COLB,’ when he asked Robert Gibbs, “Is there anything you can say to make the Birthers go away”; and Mr. Gibbs replied, “A year-and-a-half ago, I asked that the birth certificate be put on the internet. Because Lord knows, if you got a birth certificate, and you put it on the internet, what else could be the story,” I will bet you would have thought more likely Mr. Press would have followed up with incisive questions/comments like these, which are based on information posted extensively on this blog, including here. https://jbjd.wordpress.com/2010/04/07/judge-declare-bo-ineligible/comment-page-1/#comment-2148 .

(Chuckling.) ARE YOU TELLING THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES THE ONLY ‘DOCUMENTARY EVIDENCE’ THAT THEIR PRESIDENT IS EVEN A CITIZEN, LET ALONE NATURAL BORN; IS THE COLB WHICH YOU ARE NOW TELLING US, IN YOUR ROLE AS COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR FOR THE CANDIDATE’S BID FOR THE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION OF YOUR PARTY YOU ORDERED POSTED IN JUNE 2008 ON THE NEWLY LAUNCHED ON-LINE ELECTRONIC ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN PLATFORM CALLED, “FIGHT THE SMEARS,” TO COMBAT WHAT ADVERTISING COPY ON THE SITE DESCRIBED WAS MOUNTING PUBLIC CONCERNS YOUR CANDIDATE WAS NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB? (Laughing.) THE ATTRIBUTION IN THE FOOTER OF THAT AD CLEARLY SPELLS OUT WHO’S PAYING FOR THE IMAGE, AS LEGALLY REQUIRED UNDER THE U.S. CODE! FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN YOUR CLIENT WANTED THE NOMINATION, HE PAID FOR THE AD. (“PAID FOR BY BARACK OBAMA.”) WHEN HE HAD THE NOMINATION, HIS CAMPAIGN PAID FOR THE AD. (“PAID FOR BY OBAMA FOR AMERICA.”) WHEN HE WAS ELECTED POTUS, THE DNC SERVICES CORPORATION PAID FOR THE AD. (“PAID FOR BY ORGANIZING FOR AMERICA, A PROJECT OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE SERVICES CORPORATION.”) (Smirking.) IN FACT, THE ONLY HARD COPY OF THAT COLB WHICH MIGHT HAVE EXISTED, WOULD BE THE MOCK-UP OF THAT PRINT AD ON “FIGHT THE SMEARS.”

But he didn’t say anything like that. Or anything at all. Nope; he only ‘asked’ the initial question and then let Mr. Gibbs do all the talking. Why do you suppose that was?

Maybe because exposing the truth about that PAID POLITICAL ADVERTISING platform called “FIGHT THE SMEARS”; would discredit the money-making meme that fuels Mr. Press’ financial empire. In short, he artificially shores up Barack Obama’s standing by attacking his detractors as Birthers. In fact, just hours before his sedate personal appearance at Mr. Gibbs’ briefing, Mr. Press had published a scathing diatribe in The Hill, condemning CNN, his old employer; for allowing Lou Dobbs, whom he misidentifies as a Birther, to destroy the integrity of the brand.

When I worked there, as co-host of “Crossfire,” CNN was known as “America’s most trusted news network.”

And rightfully so. Alone among the cables, you could count on CNN to deliver the news right down the middle. Yes, there were commentators on the right and the left, but the anchors played it straight and stories with no legitimacy never made it to air.

Sadly, that’s no longer the case. Lou Dobbs has changed all that. And Jon Klein, CNN’s president, is letting him get away with it.

When he came back to the network, after a failed Internet business venture, Dobbs was something new for CNN: an anchor who freely gave his own opinions. That made a lot of people, including me, uncomfortable — but at least Dobbs was pontificating on legitimate issues, like immigration and the economic crisis.

For the last couple of weeks, however, Dobbs has gone off the deep end. He’s become a big “birther,” raising questions about whether President Obama was really born in Hawaii and might therefore be an illegal president.

That whole issue, whipped up by crazies like Alan Keyes, is utter nonsense. …

http://thehill.com/blogs/pundits-blog/media/52143-lou-dobbs-destroys-cnns-credibility?page=3

But Mr. Press got that wrong, too. In fact, Mr. Dobbs had clarified on several occasions, on the air, he believes Mr. Obama is a “native citizen”; he and the hundreds of thousands of citizens who have contacted him, just want to see the man’s actual birth certificate! (Note: In this video, Lou Dobbs conflates “native” born with the requirement in Article II, section 1 of “natural born.” His confusion is perhaps understandable, given Mr. Gibbs’ brilliant misdirection. That is, copy included in the on-line advertising campaign “Fight the Smears” clearly states, the image of the COLB proves Mr. Obama is a “native” of HI. And Mr. Gibbs included in the ad the text of the 14th Amendment which only applies to citizens who are not natural born. IF DROWNING OUT OPPOSING FACTS IS un-AMERICAN THEN IGNORING un-PLEASANT FACTS MUST BE un-AMERICAN, TOO)

Mr. Press revealed his biases long before he began calling people with opposing views, “crazies.”

By the end of March 2008, both BO and HRC were as likely as the other to win the Democratic Presidential Nomination. Yet, many in the press were urging her to quit the race. It got so bad that BO’s press acolytes, by publicly exposing in this way they lacked neutrality and, therefore, credibility, were killing their continued ability to shape the nomination. Enter Bill Press, writing for the Huffington Post.

No, Hillary Clinton should not quit this race. And neither should Barack Obama. They’re both great candidates. Either one of them will make a great president. So let the primaries continue and let the voters decide. If Obama ends up the nominee, I’ll do handstands on the White House lawn. But only if he wins it, fair and square.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/bill-press/should-obama-drop-out-of_b_94038.html

Well, given his insider’s view of the running of the party; Mr. Press knows, BO didn’t win the nomination “fair and square.” And between his political acumen and his broadcasting kudos, he certainly knows the difference between campaign advertising; and news.

Please, let Mr. Press know, you expect him to do better both as a broadcast and print journalist; and as a citizen. For your convenience, here are telephone and personal appearance contact information. (You can access an email form at http://www.billpressshow.com/contact-us/ )

If Mr. Press continues to tout only the party line, maybe political expenditure attributions should be printed in the footer of web sites on which his work appears, too!

    jbjd-You just keep getting better and better. This article is now at: Breitbart, hillbuzz, Oil for Immigration, Defend our Freedoms and Jefferson’s Rebels. I think many of the folks are/were aware of the fraud of the COLB, and just wondered how did they do it, many people do not like to make accusations until they are very sure of the facts-this should be a big help to them. I can tell when Gibbs is lying because really starts stuttering, changes the subject as many times as necessary and artfully manages to never answer a question. Why any of them think this is cute is beyond me.

    Michelle: Phew! I was waiting to hear what you thought, since you had explicitly expressed a preference to focus on the COLB-cum-paid-political-announcement aspect of this massive fraud. I told you, you would ‘love’ this.

    Bill Press is a key ‘go to’ person to silence the opposition. But Robert Gibbs said what he said; and the language in the attribution in the footers of the “Fight the Smears” ad reads what was written; and the U.S. Code is the law of the land. Now, if only people contact Mr. Press, and either get him to report the truth; or, by publicizing his blatant lies, neutralize their effect. ADMINISTRATOR

  2. Michelle says:

    jbjd- Gibb/Press It’s like Shakespeare meets a Machiavellian plot, but with lousy actors and really dumb dialogue. I think a lot of ex-Dem’s like myself knew in the beginning due to the Convention madness they were doing fraud, some blatant some behind the scenes but couldn’t prove it, even in their own minds. Due to their lies, I think this just required everybody to dig further, once everyone figured out the what, the how became very interesting. I like how they mix metaphor laws too, they pick and chose which to obey to stay “within the letter of the law” while committing fraud in an attempt to make every thing appear to have some legal appearance. Another thing that bothers me and will continue until the end of this who and how convinced all the players that they would not get caught? Watergate to the 1,000th power.
    Poor truth in this battle of truth v/s lies, truth took a “lickin but keeps on tickin”. Go Truth, Go jbjd. If there is a Detective of the Year award you should receive it.

    Michelle: But with Watergate, not everything was out in the open! I almost feel like, labeling me a “detective” gives me too much credit just for acknowledging what I see! The bulk of the work consisted of reading, watching, and listening to available sources to gain as much information as possible about the election cycle; and then searching for an explanation for everything that looked ‘fishy.’ Only document offered to verify Constitutional eligibility for office an on-line image on a web site paid for by the candidate? Pledged delegates for HRC being harassed to change to BO BEFORE the Convention? Software programs with optional screening functions for foreign contributions disengaged, and campaign funds with odd whole dollar AND cents amounts (perhaps reflecting foreign exchange rates)? Selecting the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives to Chair a nominating Convention? Demanding HRC drop out, now, now, now, when her metrics are winning as BO’s? All of this smelled fishy.

    The hard work was putting together a fact-based narrative that explained all of this in such a way as to convey my understanding to others. Getting this work ‘out there’ began as an avocation but has become my vocation. Soon I will run an on-line fundraiser to help support this ‘magnificent obsession.’

    The next article in the fraud series has been really arduous to write, because getting reliable information is sometimes impossible. Especially when those numbers are in the possession of and under the control of the political party. But it’s the final piece of the puzzle: I can explain how the fraud to get BO into the WH; played out at the D Corporation Nominating Convention. ADMINISTRATOR

  3. Michelle says:

    jbjd-“getting reliable information is sometimes impossible” an understatement if there ever was one. This is how the citizens were made to feel during the entire election cycle and since–what does the Freedom of Information cover anyway, folks requested material–delay, deny, obfuscate etc.
    You still get the Detective award because so many missed what you found up to and including our entire government and they write the laws. What our so called press is doing I have no clue.
    “Demanding HRC drop out” wasn’t that ever cute, especially since she was winning and they had the nerve to expect us Hillary Dems to come into the fold. PUMA forever, they succeeded in one thing turned most of us into Tea Party/Republicans.
    Final piece of the puzzle I believe this was beyond arduous to explain fraud to get Bo into WH, from there I hope next trip is to the Big House. They say we are a nation of laws, seeing will be believing.
    Foreign contributions, that is sickening on its face, no wonder they want to hide that.

    Michelle: That’s why I am so careful to ‘parse’ the accusations of illegal activity, making sure I am only going after the fraud that got BO into the WH, and not ancillary unlawful conduct, like taking foreign money to wage a campaign. (And remember, not everything that was inappropriate was illegal.)

    The information that would make writing this next piece easier, should be available because it implicates whether the DNC Corporation violated state vote binding laws. (I will explain all, soon. Promise.)

    As for bullying HRC to drop out, well, as I wrote in NEVER LESS THAN a TREASON (2 of 2), I believe this was done so as to obviate the need to ratchet up the fraud. ADMINISTRATOR

  4. Michelle says:

    jbjd-“making sure I am only going after the fraud that got BO into the WH”-you are correct in going after the original crime in my opinion, over-kill is not needed I think others will take care of that-I think it is smart to concentrate on one thing which is illegal than to try and scatter yourself all over the place, look what took Nixon down-a “third-rate burglary, I guess this is a “third-rate fraud” Gibbs and his COLB that he is so proud of-wait until the entire nation sees and figures out the COLB, I know my fellow Dems that fell for it are going to be so mad, they will feel like a bunch of chumps that have been played. Those who participated in crimes will have to answer for them, unfortunately for them so many participated they took it to the level of conspiracy.
    “I will explain all, soon. Promise”. jbjd-not to worry, not to hurry- a person reads all the material that you have supplied, we send as far and wide as possible, meanwhile it is soaking into our heads, it takes time to really think through all the ramifications of all of this material.
    In the end I think the most valuable thing to come out of this will be WE THE PEOPLE restoring our Constitutional Republic-then onward and upward. I still wonder what foreign nations must make of all this-they know our laws, they know all about Obama, I wonder if they are taking side bets among each other wondering how long can this guy and his corrupt government hang on? As a foreign nation I wouldn’t sign a treaty with him what could would it do, it could be declared illegal in a moments time.

    Michelle: At some point, I will list some of the work that has been done in these other problematic areas, such as caucus fraud (Dr. Lynette Long) and campaign financing irregularities (PUMA PAC). As you have said, my vantage point is the overall election process that gave rise to this outcome.

    M, you said, “…wait until the entire nation sees and figures out the COLB, I know my fellow Dems that fell for it are going to be so mad, they will feel like a bunch of chumps that have been played… ” You really understand this whole COLB produce placement now, from the FTS web site designed in June 2008, to Bob Bauer’s obfuscation in federal court (Hollister) in January 2009. Have you explained to your contacts, there was no actual birth certificate released by the candidate? Why don’t they get ‘mad’ now? ADMINISTRATOR

  5. Michelle says:

    jbjd-I just post this for Democrats and other concerned citizens on other sites just to get the word out, my Democratic friends will not believe this until it makes the national news, they will go into shock, I’m assuming I will be their mental therapist. How could he do this blah, blah, blah? Half of my Democratic friends did not vote for Obama, various reasons. I didn’t vote for him because I’m from Chicago, and I didn’t believe a word he said and that was before the Convention insanity.
    He was at -15 at Rasmussen, I’m surprised it isn’t lower yet, he has done a terrible job here in the Gulf Coastal states, we are at day 69 and going into prime time Hurricane season. Hurricane Alex-I think they dodged a bullet on that one, but around July/Sept they start lining up out there, so everyday counts. Breitbart did a story on Bill Press today, so I sent your article again.

    Michelle: OMG! I have to read Breitbart. (I wonder whether his recent focus on BP had anything to do with…) Anyway, you are absolutely correct; one national story about any of the materials I have been posting: the COLB-qua- paid political advertising; Kathy Hensley’s hand Certification in the offices of the SC Election Commission; Bob Bauer’s request that the federal judge take notice of the vanishing image of an unattributed newspaper birth announcement on Annenberg Political FactCheck. .. Boyd Richie refusing to tell dozens of Texas who called his office, what was the documentary basis for his Certification… Take your pick! ADMINISTRATOR

  6. Miri says:

    jbjd: Thanks for another spot-on, very informative and eye-opening article.

    Here’s a “coincidence” for you: Gibbs said that he asked for the birth certificate to be put on the Internet a year and a half before this “Press” conference was held.

    What else was going on a year and a half before July 27, 2009?

    The passport files at the Dept. of State were being breached by a contract employee of John O. Brennan (late of the CIA, currently part of the Administration) and, according to one anonymous source with knowledge of the subsequent investigation, Obama’s files were “sanitized” of “embarrassing” information. This would be January through March, 2008.

    Miri: Hello! Nice to hear from you again. (I have come to think of you as one of my 3 M’s: Miri, Mia, and Michelle.) Well, as you know, I tend not to print unattributed statements; but as this information came from you, I figured, it was probably attributed somewhere or else, you would not have repeated it. (I recall, you have become an expert at interpreting ‘Obama-speak.’ In fact, I just referenced your interpretation in a response to a comment on jbjd’s CIVICS for CIVILIANS QUIZ (2)!) (For those of you who want to see an expert interpreter at work, read https://jbjd.wordpress.com/2009/08/09/rumors-lies-and-unsubstantiated-facts/#comment-793 And, sure enough, here are two sources of information about Mr. Brennan. First, a brief biographical sketch from CNN. http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/03/22/passport.files/index.html Then, a write-up about Mr. Brennan’s involvement in the passport file breach, from the NYT. http://topics.nytimes.com/topics/reference/timestopics/people/b/john_o_brennan/index.html Thank you again for checking in. ADMINISTRATOR

    • mirig says:

      jbjd: I’m honored to be known as one of your three M’s. Truly honored because you are doing fabulous work and I thank God for you and your continued efforts on behalf of this Republic. Also honored that you value my analysis.

      I’m sorry that I don’t have time to check in more often. I do try to keep up, but sometimes life gets in the way.

      About knowing what I’m talking about with regard to Brennan: I’m sorry that I didn’t supply links and you had to go to the trouble to find them. I’ve discussed him and those shenanigans so often and in such depth that I forget that what I know so well by now may not be common knowledge, especially given the news blackout by the lamestream media.

      You know what tipped me off: The frequency with which Mr. Gibbs mentions that HE is the one who asked for the “birth certificate” to be put online. He says it far too often. The last time he said it, I tried to go back to find every reference he ever made to it. That’s when I noticed the “year and a half ago” and how it didn’t jibe with the date the COLB went online. That was about June 2008, but a year and a half before the Bill “Press” conference was right about the time that the passport files were breached. A Freudian slip?

      He seems SO proud of himself for that coup. Gibbs is up to at least five instances of taking credit for that accomplishment. However, I don’t watch every WH press conference and it’s possible, even likely, that I missed other instances of braggadocio on the part of Mr. Gibbs concerning that COLB.

      He truly does seem to think that we’re all stupid, or else he cannot resist public self-congratulation because they do think that they got away with it. And maybe they did.

      You know what else bugs me? His use of the phrase “noble truth” with regard to Obama’s proof of eligibility being on the Internet. In what sense is this a “noble” truth? In the sense that he believes that it’s for the good of the entire world that everyone believes that it’s a truthful document, even if it’s not?

      mirig (Miri): OMG, you know what I was just thinking? I wonder whether your work here on deciphering BO-speak; sensitized you to ‘hearing’ what RG was really saying! I mean, how many people do you suppose heard that ‘year-and-a-half-ago’ line and never even considered the timing of the passport break. I certainly did not! (But then, I am rather myopic when it comes to ‘outing’ BO. That is, the fact there is no documentary evidence he is a citizen, let alone natural born; is my concern, insofar as anyone Certifying his NBC status broke state ballot eligibility laws all across the country! And despite the lack of laws requiring Constitutional eligibility verification; these ballot laws alone could have prevented his name from appearing on the ballot.) ADMINISTRATION

  7. Al says:

    Bravo, jbjd! You have a knack for drawing out the details. Thanks for sharing this post–sharp!

    Al: You are welcome. Can you believe people still think that COLB on FTS means something (in relation BO’s birth)? ADMINISTRATOR

  8. Michelle says:

    jbjd-ok, I couldn’t help myself today I sent this article to both John Boehner and Eric Cantor.

    Michelle: It may not seem like this is happening but, the word is getting around that on this blog, we have identified the fraud that propelled BO into office; and the options for getting him out. And until one of the bigger blogs champions the work that goes on here; I rely on faithful readers like you to get the word out. (Can you imagine, for example, if more than just the commenters on Breitbart followed the links you post there?) ADMINISTRATOR

  9. Michelle says:

    jbjd-“the word is getting around” that makes me feel so much better-I saw your posting re: the three M’s (we’re) triplets-saw Mia (I believe) posted at Defend our Freedoms-repubx so I followed up because that Obot Foggy was acting up. I sent your Press Article to a newspaper link, but I forgot the name, it was linked to something else. I sent it to Mr. Cantor re: his remarks on Obama’s remark re: bluffing. I’m determined to get Andrew Breitbart, he is acting like a bit of a challenge at the moment. If someone could post to Hillary is 44 that would be good, they tend to go for the throat at that web-site. Must be more ripped-off Hillary supporters.

    Michelle: I say this because I am getting hits independent of links. In other words, people may find out about “jbjd” through the posted links to specific stories; but then, they return directly. The numbers are still modest but, for a low budget blog, the numbers are respectable. (When I get around to doing the fundraiser, I hope to ‘hire’ a blog professional to take this endeavor ‘public.’)

    I agree that tapping into the anger and frustration at what was done to HRC, felt both by supporters and onlookers, would provide a great boost to publicizing the work. ADMINISTRATOR

  10. Michelle says:

    jbjd-Remember at the beginning of our discovery with what the heck went on at the Democratic convention and we all were being attacked for just questioning anything, this may give some insight to everyone as to where those attacks were coming from. To me what happened to HRC though it was terrible and a rip-off all the way around-it was just such a mystery as to how they were able to do it. Hillary was ripped off but so were all the honest people who donated their money and time to her and all the other honest candidates. Can you imagine what would happen if this was not politics but a sports event, people would be screaming bloody murder?
    http://www.breitbart.tv/breitbart-issues-100000-reward-for-journolist-archive/comment-page-1/#comment-5813741

    Michelle: I suppose, if Breitbart is correct and there is such a group; this would be the evidence some people require before admitting such collusion. As for a lot us, we already assume the collusion; knowing this was formally done doesn’t change a thing. Unless, that is, it gets people to file complaints with their A’sG charging members of the D party swore BO was Constitutionally eligible for the job knowing the FTS COLB was a sham. ADMINISTRATOR

    2) The Senate passing a resolution declaring Obama born in Hawaii (the first time a government entity indicated that Obama was born in Hawaii in history).
    3) Fukino later coming out with her infamous statement declaring Obama natural-born American citizen.

    It appears they were trying to make this go away that day on three fronts.

    Buchanan; exactly when he and Mr. Gibbs did their song and dance! Get me evidence that these events could be a concerted campaign of disinformation; and I will post these. But just alleging these events are contemporaneous is not good enough here. ADMINISTRATOR

  18. Are you two serious? I ask sincerly. I am presently doing the best I can to choke down my wrath. Please, please, glance at the conversation as it has already taken place. Please, read and add something new to the conversation. You don’t need to read all 433 posts, it is a pain in the butt! I know, I did it! But, your views lose credence when you neglect the conversation before you. Like the guy that enters the party 3 hours late and says”wow, lotta guys here!” in a room of frustrated men, you leave me annoyed.
