White House Tactics Go Too Far [CORRECTION!]

When I saw the title of this article that was written by Charles Krauthammer and posted at Real Clear Politics, my immediate thought was NO KIDDING!!! It obviously took this egregious attempt by the White House thugs to crush free speech at Fox for the Media of Mass Deception lapdogs (who worship at the feet of ObamaFRAUD) to finally realize the White House has gone way to far! This WH's attempt to wield absolute power over the media is a VERY BAD THING!

Excerpts in quotes followed by my comments.

Rahm Emanuel once sent a dead fish to a live pollster. Now he's put a horse's head in Roger Ailes' bed.

Not very subtle. And not very smart. Ailes doesn't scare easily.

In case you weren't aware of why Sean Hannity often labels Emanuel as Rahm "dead fish" Emanuel - now you know where he got that title!

At first, there was little reaction from other media. Then on Thursday, the administration tried to make them complicit in an actual boycott of Fox. The Treasury Department made available Ken Feinberg, the executive pay czar, for interviews with the White House "pool" news organizations -- except Fox. The other networks admirably refused, saying they would not interview Feinberg unless Fox was permitted to as well. The administration backed down.

Oh GLORY! The administration backed down! See, they can't get away with everything. The media is catching on - albeit slowly. At least some of the MSM is WAKING UP and defying the deceptive schemes that are being used right now - especially with the health care bill and the cap and tax bill.

This was an important defeat because there's a principle at stake here. While government can and should debate and criticize opposition voices, the current White House goes beyond that. It wants to de-legitimize any significant dissent. The objective is no secret. White House aides openly told Politico that they're engaged in a deliberate campaign to marginalize and ostracize recalcitrants, from Fox to health insurers to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Obama's two-faced mask was exposed when he formerly praised the U.S. Chamber of Commerce at the time that they agreed to his Stimulus bill. However, when they came out opposing the health care single-payer plan and the cap and trade bills, he viciously denigrated the Chamber! In other words, any group, or any PERSON who disagrees with Obama is targeted and utterly destroyed by the ObamaTHUGGERY administration.

Madison argued that the safety of a great republic, its defense against tyranny, requires the contest between factions or interests. His insight was to understand "the greater security afforded by a greater variety of parties." They would help guarantee liberty by checking and balancing and restraining each other -- and an otherwise imperious government.

Factions should compete, but also recognize the legitimacy of other factions and, indeed, their necessity for a vigorous self-regulating democracy. Seeking to deliberately undermine, de-legitimize and destroy is not Madisonian. It is Nixonian.

But didn't Teddy Roosevelt try to destroy the trusts? Of course, but what he took down was monopoly power that was extinguishing smaller independent competing interests. Fox News is no monopoly. It is a singular minority in a sea of liberal media. ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, NPR, CNN, MSNBC vs. Fox. The lineup is so unbalanced as to be comical -- and that doesn't even include the other commanding heights of the culture that are firmly, flagrantly liberal: Hollywood, the foundations, the universities, the elite newspapers.

Tyranny. That is what ObamaMASK and his puppeteers are all about! Their obvious contempt against WE THE PEOPLE of the TEA Party movement who came out in droves (1.2 million estimated) at the protest in Washinton D.C. are disparagingly labeled as "astroturf" by Nancy PeLIARsi. Their disregard for the Constitution of the United States is shown with arrogance beyond belief by Nancy PeLIARsi!!

Perhaps this incident will FINALLY wake up the former Obama-Idol adorers - and they will see that if the WH can try to shut down Fox News, who is to say that their news organization won't be next? That is - unless they "toe the line" according to the Hugo Chavez tyrannical way that news is done in Venezuela.

"You can catch Obama in a lie or contradiction ALMOST DAILY!"
- Glenn Beck

If you haven't noticed, the video clips that Beck has consistently provided on his T.V. show are ABSOLUTE PROOF that Obama is guilty of lying and contradicting dozens of his former statements on an annoyingly regular basis.

They tried to eliminate Fox from the press pool yesterday!

Obama's duplicity: first he says that he "wants to be held accountable" but then blames the Bush Administration for EVERYTHING! It has been nine months! The Stimulus didn't create jobs - we are hemorrhaging jobs at an astounding rate! The Porkulus didn't work - it was filled with 8,000 earmarks that benefited Obama's cronies and those who got him elected. Hello....ACORN?? THE MOST CORRUPT ORGANIZATION - PROBABLY IN HISTORY - EXCEPT FOR MAYBE, THE MAFIA!

ARGGHH...I can't go on listing all of the MESS THAT OBAMA HAS ADDED TO THE ECONOMIC CRASH THAT HAPPENED IN NOVEMBER OF 2008. As always, I will refer everyone to read all that you can over at The Obama File.

Know what? I am having an Emily Litella moment!

Similarly to that Emily Litella character from the old SNL shows - I am forced to say - NEVER MIND!!

Why - do you ask?

Because I think I was WRONG!!

[Note to the regular readers here: Watch the Obots and the anti-Christians (like Mike Rucker, John, Scott, GMPilot etc.) come over and have a field day with that admission!]

Here is where I was wrong. VotingFemale writes:

The arrogance of Obama seems to know no bounds… and for a Constitutional Lawyer to attempt such a blatant and serious violation of the US Constitution which he took a vow to uphold almost got his butt in a sling from which few presidents survive politically.

The White House Press Pool was instructed by the White House to Black Ball FOX News from participating in the WH Press Pool interviewing of Kenneth R. Feinberg.

Had they followed the WH instructions a major violation of the US Constitution by the White House would have occurred and there would have been no undoing the fact that it happened. Obama’s fate would have been sealed.

The US Judicial System would have been automatically mandated to step in and block the Executive Branch in its unconstitutional actions.

ABC CBS NBC CNN saved the President from a disaster.

See...the Media of Mass Deception didn't refuse to attend the WH Press Pool interviewing of Kenneth R. Feinberg because they thought it wasn't right to black-ball Fox News, THEY DID IT TO SAVE THE BOGUS POTUS' A**!!!


I agree with SamHenry's comment over there:

oh yeah… they were covering Obama’s backside… plus there is also this Christine:

Jake Tapper of ABC ask some real probing questions of Gibbs over the WH house declaring FOX is not a News Company… that was a dark and sinister move on the part of Obama.

Jake Tapper is now in the White House Dog house for that and is penciled in on the WH Enemies List… also the Anita Dunn video of her bragging about totally controlling the media has not gone over well with the other Media outlets. It is insulting and condescending in the extreme.

It is one thing for ABC CBS NBC AND CNN to support a DEM president… it is another to be a slave of a All Controlling Dictator telling the media what they can and can not do…

So… some of the defense of FOX was also self serving on the part of ABC CBS NBC and CNN.


"they were covering Obama’s backside."

"some of the defense of FOX was also self serving on the part of ABC CBS NBC and CNN."

I thought that the Fringe Media was so drunk with ObamaFRAUD Kool-Aid, that they already knew they were -as you so eloquently put it - "slave[s] of a[n] All Controlling Dictator telling the media what they can and can not do…"

Oh there possibly a glimmer of hope that some news outlets may genuinely awaken from their Obambi stupor (except for MSNBullCrap, of course!)?

Christine, I believe the jokers at MSNBC, left to their own devices, would follow Obama into hell, howling like the loons they are all the way into eternal damnation just so they can get their daily dose of shivers up their legs.

The rest of the Fringe Media seem to have a sense of some propriety in there somewhere, notwithstanding their worship of Obama on a daily basis. They can not help but realize their nonstop Obama worship sharpens the tongue of FOX News as the sole stand out who is serving the public interest in the role of keeping Obama honest.

Additionally, the Fringe Media can read the polls and the ratings for each of the Media channels… and can not escape the reality of people are turning away from them and towards FOX News… and why it has been happening.

It is time this slobbering love affair with Obama by the Fringe Media come to an end… and then perhaps FOX News can relax a little not being the only one of all of them to carry the water.

More follow-up later. I'm out doing errands!
