The National Examiner
Evidence is growing that the White House is so sensitive about stories in the media concerning the issue of Presidential eligibility that reporters have been warned of dire consequences if they merely ask questions about the subject.
A White House insider has reported that the subject is so highly sensitive that reporters must 'tread softly' and 'be very careful' if they dare delve into Obama's background.
There is also information that suggests mainstream media sources now have all of the facts about the issue but intend to go on the offensive in protecting Obama at all costs. In the insider's own words,
Can’t respond much at this time. Too busy with all of the chaos coming at us these days. May be out of work soon! Crazy stuff. Simply urge you to lay off the birther angle at this time. Strongly urge. To proceed is at your own peril. Please take warning seriously. This is not a small town cop shop situation here. Let someone else try and make name on this one.
Don’t blame you as it was me who brought up subject last time. Since then heard repeated rumors/confirmations of attempted “purge” coming down the pike. WH/media going on the offensive bigtime on issue. Has already started as you probably know. Talking very specific, very confrontational, very scary stuff here. Don’t wish to drag you into that. Much bigger fish are circling this. They can survive what could be coming. Not sure about me. Let the big players handle this now. This thing will either break out big or disappear.
However, the bombshell evidence of the willingness of the Obama team to engage in threats and intimidation over the eligibility issue is encapsulated in a 2009 special report documenting outright media manipulation by the White House. According to the report,
...extremely sensitive investigative documents, including a stunning written admission by a nationally known talk show host stating that he was threatened with his career – or worse – should he talk about the issue of Barack Hussein Obama’s birth records to a national audience. This document was obtained on December 10, 2008, and provides explicit detail of a “gag order” imposed on this host before and immediately following the national election last November.
That, however, is only the tip of the iceberg. The report also contains this stunning admission by an administrative assistant within a major news network in New York:
From multiple interviews conducted within the last eight months, we have obtained information from other sources, independent of the above, who have also been instructed to avoid any discussion of the birth certificate issue at all costs, to wit:
The account of an administrative assistant employed in New York City by a cable network news station who provided significant, detailed information of a 2008 meeting between the top network executive and four-(4) well-known news anchors. This source confirmed that she drafted the memo to the various hosts to arrange notify them of the date, time and location of this high-level meeting at the request of the network’s top executive.
Present at this meeting, she verified that the network official issued “warnings” to the personalities “to avoid any on-air discussion of the birth place, eligibility, and news accounts of litigation compelling [Barack Hussein] Obama to produce a legitimate copy of his birth certificate.” She stated that the network executive had her arrange the conference immediately following a meeting “between [the network executive] and an attorney closely associated with candidate Obama who was acting on his behalf.”
The report goes further to indicate that not only were news reporters and talk show hosts pressured to withhold information under the threat of losing their jobs but that inherent in the threats was a subtle but distinct hint that any such dissemination of information could result in bodily harm or worse.
Fast-forward to January of 2011. A close friend of Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, a veteran celebrity reporter by the name of Mike Evans, stated in a radio interview on January 19 that the Governor had initiated an extensive search of records that would prove Obama's eligibility, and that no such records could be found. But once the story of the allegations hit the news wires yesterday, Evans retracted everything he said by the end of the day on January 26.
Was Mike Evans threatened by someone either close to or within the Obama team?
There are no answers to that question at this time, but given the history of this issue, such a thing would fit a pattern established by those who were schooled in what is known as 'the Chicago way.'
