Lanny Davis, and Obama supporter, said this morning on WMAL that the Washington Times editor was threatened with restricted access or possible revocation of access to White House officials if they kept running his column, a column White House officials apparently didn’t like.

    And you are gonna continue to support this jackass Lanny? The truth appears to coincide with threats or worse from these bastards!

    • anneinarkansas

      GREAT Question!!!!!!!

    • Jazzee

      yeah lanny are you gonna be a stand up guy and fight back or cave to the ‘king’ idiot obama? so now he is denying you your 1st amendment right…hmmmm are you surprised lanny????????????????? he is a dictator and mentally unbalanced as all dictators are

      • johnos2112

        I think the threats are going to congress too. It would not surprise me in the least!

    Gee, just like Fox News, huh? The dictator-in-chief will NOT tolerate ANY dissension from ANYONE, period. Just like the tin-pot dictator he’d like to be. He sure is going to be upset when We the People rise up and throw his azz to the curb, huh?

    • Betsey_Ross

      I sure hope so. As they said on WMAL, this has become a pattern of behavior from the WH. How long has it been going on? Ever since Rush said, “I hope he fails”. No wonder the WH keeps in touch with MSNBC and the rest. They cannot be trusted to get out the word from Obama. Of course they feed the morons information to be discmenated from the the microphones of the alphabet news organizations. If they don’t like it, they threaten. This needs to go viral and talked about and analyzed ad nauseum. Obama is trying to become a dictator. We see it in his actions and now we are getting the word from even Democrats who have had the hammer come down on them. Obama picked the wrong country to be the dictator.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Agreed.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/KYTC7EGQASGOTQYPY2KPC4XCZY Don

    Obam’s biggest enemy is the truth. Those who insist on reporting on reality the facts support as the truth will be attacked and intimidated. This adminsitration is incapable of the truth. Like a prominent democratic campaign manager said,”the truth is what we can make the American voters believe.” Lies and deceptions from Obama is the new reality.

    Dumb-Ø is a ChicagØ punk, end of subject.

    • americalsgt

      The difference is that he is pulling stunts against those who once worshiped at his feet and they are perhaps seeing the light for the first time and recognizing that those of us who have been crying in the wilderness like John the Baptist for the past 5-6 years are not all moon landing deniers and have been making valid points.

        No, they aren’t.

    • Nukeman60

      Yes, he has been pulling this since the beginning. The difference is it isn’t being kept quiet as before. There are quite a few liberal journalists that have been intimidated in the past that would love to nail Obama to the wall. Fear of reprisals have kept them quiet and the veil is coming off slowly.

  • americalsgt

    I wish someone could tell me when the coup took place. At some point, and I think soon, there will be a backlash against Obama’s reign of terror against those who speak out against him. Woodward and the Washington Post are not small players. When that happens, one of two things will occur; either Obama’s downfall will commence or his mask will come off and we will find out just how much power and control he has and we will either become willing subjects or adversarial revolutionaries. Personally, I see myself more as a John Fries type.

    Not since Nixon have I seen an attempt like this to silence the press. Well, I can’t feel that badly for the mainstream media, though.

Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target…’

  • colliemum

    See – I toldjah so! Treating reporters with no access is the modern form of censure.
    The socialist Labour government did this here in the UK, and the hacks kept quiet about a number of scandals, the worst being the constant abuse by MPs of their expenses account.
    So since BHO and his helpers have been pilfering ideas and expressions from that socialist Labour government, threatening reporters with ‘no access’ to His Obamaness is par for the course.

    Interesting though that even Lanny Davis is playing this down, as something which just happens, move on. He’s part of the DC meejah culture, where questions mustn’t be asked, and where the POS must be glorified, lies and criminal acts notwithstanding.

        Reminds me of the victim of domestic abuse blaming everyone (even themselves) but their abusive partner. “It can’t be his/her fault” syndrome.

        • clockwindingdown

          For some reason in our society it is difficult for most folks to admit they made a mistake or were wrong, as if they’re a failure if they do. Instead many dig their heels in making the situation and their lives more difficult then is needed by admitting to the issue, learning, and getting on with life.

          Such is the case in domestic abuse, they except what they feel they deserve, and often times are heard to say I deserved it. When in fact they are not admitting the other person may be the cause and or defective. To do so may be admitting they were wrong in knowing who this person really is, not admitting to the signs that kept popping up, instead choosing to see what could be versus what is.

          Often I have said this the relationship of obama and his followers. They will not lay any accountability on him for his actions, choosing instead to ignore reality for what they wish had been.

  • Betsey_Ross

    Nixon’s beef wasn’t with the press. He didn’t try to silence them. Even Woodward and Bernstein were barking up the wrong tree. Watergate was about protecting John and Maureen Dean. Woodward blew it up into a cover-up of magnificent proportions and the Democrats were still PO’d that Nixon had exposed Alger Hiss for the commie he was. A perfect storm. The country surviving the Communists after WW 2 was the huge story that no one really told unless you dug for it. The press was and is still complicit in that. Check out Walter Durante and learn the history of our so-called free press in the 20th century. It’s pretty ugly and unbelievable, but it’s making more sense everyday. After Woodward’s book on Bill Casey, I have not even given the man a single thought except as a writer of fiction. Lanny would think he is truthful because he is a Lib. So be it.

    However, because Woodward is such a Lib and now Lanny, who is also a huge Lib, have come out with basically the same story, plus we have seen how the WH operates and their style of getting control over any story somewhere the truth is finally emerging. Because it fits the pattern(template in Rush terms) some of these guys are beginning to connect the dots. They won’t admit that the Dictator is showing his true colors, they want the New Media to do that so they can demonize them again. But maybe, just maybe they won’t be able to control it anymore. The morons believe Woodward so maybe there is a glimmer of hope.

    • Betsey_Ross

      Hmmmmmm. This was in answer to Libertyship 46. Don’t know how it got down here. Sorry.

    • tinlizzieowner

      Woodward and Bernstein had the guts to take on Nixon (R) which was a risky thing to do (if you planned on keeping your job), for being the liar that he was and having ‘a machine’ behind him to ‘fix’ his enemies. ‘Watergate’ wouldn’t have been half the ‘scandal’ it was, If the liberal ‘media’ hadn’t been more than happy to run with it, thus bringing about Nixon’s downfall.
      Woodward has the journalistic integrity to take on Obama (D) which is a risky thing to do (if you plan on keeping your job), for being the liar that he is and having ‘a machine’ behind him to ‘fix’ his enemies. This time the liberal ‘media’ is doing everything they can to discredit their former ‘darling’ and support their (equally corrupt) President.

    • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

      I am thinking so.
      I am also wondering if woodward knew there was a pattern and stepped up first to allow the info to come out.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

        No. Woodward has his widdle feelings hurt. I have zero sympathy for him. He is part of the cabal of idolatry that foisted that communist muslim on us.

        • http://www.theconservativevoices.com/ dmacleo

          very possible, I am NOT a woodward fan. not by any means.
          but I also will call a wrong a wrong when it is…well… wrong LOL
          I had posted before (forget where, maybe at legal insurrection) that he was part of th machine that foisted the obama crap onto us and it is biting him in the butt now.
          but I can’t help but thinking there is something else in play here.
          if so, stepping up first does bolster his ego/standing while (possibly) giving cover to others (like the 2 so far that also spoke up) to corroborate.
          so it very well may be a case of him getting to keep his cake and eat it too.

          I think we may see more people come fwd with stories against obama. not only the intimidation stuff but other stuff too.
          now this will not be for altruistic reasons but to CYA themselves for what they helped do to us.
          so while their reasons for doing so may be self serving we may be able to finally (even if too late) get to the truth (as it is) about this guy.
          and at this point thats about as good as we can expect.
          and we can store the info and use it as ammo against them the next time they fall in love with a candidate.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/44F4AB4VSCTOCHBMBG4ZWWD5OU Laurel

            Totally agree. This is Chicago thuggery politics at it’s best. The ends justify the means. But goobers like Woodward denied it’s existence and never ever thought it would happen to them. A large portion of the left is just plain naive and that is how Obama controls them. Lemmings willingly lead off of the cliff.

            And you can’t store a darn thing and use it as info when that many dumb people flock to the polls and deny the existence of sheer reality.

            Woodward and Davis are whistle blowing and getting ripped in the process. They are old guard and the new young guard is in charge. No more whistle blowers will come forward. That takes courage. Something the left is in short supply of.
