CNN Anchor Reveals Obama Administration Officials Threaten Journalists Who Make Obama Look Bad
October 29, 2013 // By: Joe Calandra Jr.//

Ever wonder why so many mainstream media outlets seem to love Obama so much? Here’s some insight on the subject from CNN’s Carol Costello…
Carol Costello says, the Obama Administration hates to get embarrassed and looks for ways to exert its influence to get reporters fired for actually doing their job!

During last night’s CNN broadcast, Mrs. Costello admitted Barack Obama’s media team has immense influence with mainstream news agencies.

She says if you make Obama look bad, you could lose your job.

Well, let's see...I've heard liberals blame Republicans for the rollout website fiasco and the insurance companies for not obeying the master of their universe and throwing people off their insurance rolls left and right. Like no one saw THAT coming...
But there's no one to blame but Obama, Pelosi and Reid - kinda like the three stooges of Obamacare.
Obama, Pelosi and Reid, the Axis of Unbelievable

If there is one man who knows about corrupt presidential administrations, it is Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward. So, when the man who helped bring down Richard Nixon warns about widespread corruption within the Executive Branch, it commands attention.

Woodward spoke last weekend with CBS anchor Bob Schieffer about the Obama Administration’s “secret world” of government power, where it operates with impunity, often times well outside the rule of law.

To keep Obama and his cronies ensconced in power, Woodward describes how the Administration routinely uses intimidation, misdirection, and outright lies to hide what it actually is doing. Of course, this “rats nest of concealment and lies,” as Woodward calls it, is not limited to the Administration’s national security operations; it is systemic.

Despite claims from President Obama HIMSELF during the lengthy healthcare debate that began in earnest more than four years ago:
That individuals would be able to keep their healthcare plans if they wanted, millions of Americans are now receiving policy cancellation notices as a direct result of the new ObamaCare regulations.

These individuals now are forced to buy more expensive polices, or settle for plans with reduced benefits.

The Administration, of course, claims this is an unexpected and unforeseeable “inconvenience.” However, NBC News -- a once reliable Obama ally in the Mainstream Media -- notes the Administration has known for years this would occur, even while telling the public the exact opposite.

Obama Can’t Blame the Republicans This Time

The argument Obama won in 2012 about the role of government has already been squandered.

The Obamacare roll out is a disaster for progressive politics.

Barack Obama: America’s Commander-in-Deceit

Another former Mainstream Media ally also blasted the Obama Administration last weekend, for lying to the public.

A CBS “60 Minutes” special on Benghazi called the attack “a planned, sophisticated” act of terrorism by al Qaeda against a “barely protected American outpost.”

CBS also blamed the White House for “misinformation” and “confusion” following the attack, as Obama and other Administration officials repeatedly mislead the public with false reports of a peaceful protest gone awry.

These damning indictments of the Obama Administration should hardly surprise anyone.

The go-to responses when backed into a corner are either denial of knowledge (“I know nothing and even if I did, I couldn’t tell you”),

or outright lies (“If you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan”).

In every scandal plaguing the Obama Administration, the information initially given to the public or to congressional investigators, rarely has turned out to be true.

O'bama also planned to speak at a fundraiser for House Democrats at the home of his former ambassador to Spain, Alan Solomont. About 60 people paid $16,200 to $64,800 to dine on Spanish-influenced fare, to be followed by Red Sox cookies in honor of the World Series game being played in town the same night. See O'bama is just like you:)

This is unacceptable. On December 12th(1983), our U.S. embassy in Kuwait was attacked by a suicide truck bomber. This blatant act of terror killed 5 people. Yet, the weak willed President Reagan refuses to call it an Act of Terror.

Here's what happened:

On December 12, 1983, a truck laden with 45 large cylinders of gas connected to plastic explosives broke through the front gates of the American Embassy in Kuwait City and rammed into the embassy's three-story administrative annex, demolishing half the structure. The shock blew out windows and doors in distant homes and shops.
The pitifully limp response from the Reagan White House below:
First of all, he never even put out an official statement condemning the act. His first public response to the act was a MEDIA interview with the New York Daily News when asked about it. No where in that interview does he call the incident an "act of terror". Sure, he talks generically about "world wide terrorism", but it isn't clear if he's talking about Kuwait or the previous Lebanon bombings from earlier in the year.

He didn't make any more public statements until two days later he was again asked about the incident. He again refused to even mention the word "terror".

Obama lied about Black Panther voter intimidation in Philadelphia.

He lied about his Administration’s role in “Operation Fast and Furious.”

He lied about using the Department of Justice to intimidate journalists. He lied about NSA wiretapping.

He lied about using drone strikes to kill American citizens overseas.

He lied about Benghazi and the first assassination of a U.S. Ambassador since 1979.

He lied about using the IRS to bully Tea Party organizations and deny them their First Amendment rights.

He lied about ObamaCare being ready for launch, despite Republican warnings to the contrary.

He lied about individuals being able to keep their healthcare plans.

The President and his Attorney General refuse to enforce laws duly passed by the Congress.

America’s “Commander-in-Chief” has the become the “Commander-in-Deceit.”

Maybe Nobel needs to change the spelling from peace to deceit cause America is stuck with this real prize--a liar and a sack of sh*t in that empty suit.

Ummm...gee whiz CBS and NBC and anyone with a brain, isn't that what average non-media citizens have been POSTING ON THIS PAGE SINCE 2008????

There was a much better way to go about this.

CBO estimated 30 million will still be uninsured under Obamacare. About the same as now without big government and the IRS involved.
