The New Normal : White House Threats

WASHINGTON — Bob Woodward isn’t the only person who’s received threats for airing the Obama administration’s dirty laundry.  It seems anyone is a potential target of the White House these days – even former senior members of the Clinton administration.

A day after Woodward’s claim that a senior White House official had told him he would “regret” writing a column criticizing President Obama’s stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington Times.

Davis told WMAL that his editor, John Solomon, “received a phone call from a senior Obama White House official who didn’t like some of my columns, even though I’m a supporter of Obama. I couldn’t imagine why this call was made.”  Davis says the Obama aide told Solomon, “that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.”

      Yes. The problem dates back to 24 Oct 1945 when one well-intentioned decision (1.) and two unwise decisions (2. and 3.) were made after the United Nations was established to save the world from possible nuclear annihilation by:

      1. Putting the common welfare of mankind ahead of national, racial and ethnic interests.

      2. Failing to acknowledge world leaders are but trusted servants of the people – not their rulers.

      3.) Violating the most basic principle of science by obscuring the source of energy [1] that vaporized Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Aug 1945: The fundamental driving force of astronomy, astrophysics, climatology, cosmology, nuclear, particle, planetary, and solar physics.

    re: White House Threats

    Expect during the next year or two, at the most, the world wide rolling depression to become obvious to even the most low information voter. Enjoy then the panic at the white house. You will know it is happening when even Chris Matthews gets the threat treatment.

    This is impeachable. It is no matter that they said it would not happen again, nor could they make a patsy of the actual caller, since he is just an official extension of the executive branch of government; an extension of the president’s own hands.

    It would be tantamount to saying that the “plumbers” in Watergate were independent of Nixon.

    This is a clear abridgment and an attempt to quash first amendment rights. If the press in this country have any balls, they should be up in arms about this. I would like to name it “Goebbelsgate”.

    Political cartoonists take note: How about a picture morph of Barack Obama and Joseph Goebbels?

    Why would anyone be worried about losing their 2nd amendment rights? Americans would never elect a dictator, and we have the watchdog media to keep leftist administrations from trashing the constitution. Go back to sleep.

    Well there you go, socialist’s dictatorial behaviour is common the world over … our sub-prime minister in Australia personally calls the editors and threatens them into silence.

    To hell with L Davis–maybe he will be the first in fema camp
