White House - Business As Usual - Lie Until You're Caught !

By
Real Estate Agent

 

Last week I wrote a blog about Rashad Hussain. You might recall he was appointed a little over a week ago, personally by President Obama, as the White House Islamic Envoy.
http://activerain.com/blogsview/1498613/latest-obama-appointee-another-controversy


The sequence of events:

Fox News reported that Rashad had attended a conference and was quoted as making sympathetic remarks regarding Sami al-Arian.

  • Al-Arian had pleaded guilty to sponsoring Islamic Jihad. 
  • A journalist wrote an article attributinging those quotes to Rashad.


Fox News reported both the remarks and the fact that the original article had been "scrubbed" and his remarks removed.

  • The White House Denied it.


Fox News interviewed the original journalist and she insisted from her notes Rashad had indeed made those remarks.

 

  • The White House denied it.

 
Politico.com finds an audio from that conference.  Rashad is heard on tape saying exactly what he denied.
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0210/33210.html

  • Late Friday night, after the news outlets were closed, the White House issued a statement from Rashad that he admitted he made what he characterized as "ill conceived" remarks.  He also admitted having the print article sanitized to remove his remarks.


I don't know about you but I'm sick of this behavior from the highest office in our country. Just more of the same.

Seems the vetting process for this administration includes hiding and removing anything about a candidate that might be cause for disqualification.

                  Lie and keep lying until you are caught!


                  Bottom line - This guy should be fired!!!!

Wallace,  Megan Kelly has been reporting on it since last week. She just did another report revealing what took place over the weekend.

John,  I know we saw that with the little blue dress. I do not recall Clinton advisers or appointees who were so controversial.  I also do not recall sanitizing or changing the history of an appointee so they were acceptable, aqnd slipped under public scrutiny.

Additionally, Rashad has committed the Koran to memory.  It has been reported that such devotion is applicable to those who support Sharia law.  Rashad supports Sharia law.  Sharia law supports Jihad. This person does not represent the belief system ascribed to by the citizens who comprise out country.

I find this very troubling.

"Sharia law covers all aspects of life, including how a man and woman should have sex, for instance. Roughly there are five areas of Sharia law:

1. Belief-Allah, His angels, His books, His prophets, the Day of Judgment and the decrees of God.
2. Moralities-giving good counsel, humility, patience and so forth.
3. Devotions-the Five Pillars, alms, pilgrimage to Mecca, and jihad.
4. Transactions-business law, marriage, divorce and disputes.
5. Punishments-stoning, amputation, lashings, and retaliation."

Bill Clinton appointees were nothing compared to these leftists, terrorist sympathizers and appears - communists and tax evaders - what else?

However, I do believe that the white house still does not admit that they were lies but rather will concede something like it was a misstatement, or more often, the listeners misunderstood the meaning.

I guess we have gone from Washington politics as usual to a new way...  Chicago politics as usual...

I couldn't disagree with the assertions in this blog and the responses that it has received more.  To try to associate Obama with terrorism makes me ill. 

I sit here debating about whether to respond and trying to think of perhaps a witty response - but I've got nothing.  I'm just struck by this and simply feel compelled to point out that Fox and its affiliates fabricate and create much of their own "news" through Fox Entertainment and then report on their own actions as if it were the real news.  The truth gets so twisted and turned to represent whatever talking point the producers are going for that in the end it is barely recognizable.  

When completing a research paper, even an elementary student is taught to use more than one source.  If only our news sources would remember what they were taught in elementary school perhaps we'd see more news and less propaganda (on ALL the stations, not just FOX).

There.  At least I said something!

Bonnie,

Don't you mean lie until you're caught and then lie some more until everything is just a bigger lie? :)

Lisa Epstein -

Are you serious, with this, "To try to associate Obama with terrorism makes me ill."?

Do you really not know of both Barry and Michelle's decades-long, very good friendship with well-known Communist American terrorists, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, of Weather Underground fame?  In fact, they're such good friends that Barry launched his political career in their living room!

This is no surprise.  There seems to be no end to the surly cast of characters being hand picked to run our country.

Lisa,  you are certainly entitled to your opinion and can freely express it.

If you follow the progression outlined above, Fox revealed the lie and the attempted cover up.  Subsequently the White House conceded and admitted both the statement and the sanitizing of the article were in fact undertaken by Rashad.  What part of that seems to be untrue?   It also does not appear to be TV for entertainment format.

It would be wonderful if the main stream media practiced investigative journalism, instead of only reporting that which the White House approves of. The main stream media has forgotten its role as charged by our founding fathers.  The only business in the United States protected by a Constitutional Amendment.

There are many of us who could list the stories Fox broke and proved regarding this administration.  I feel it would be an exercise in futility when you feel the news outlet is valueless.

As pointed out in this blog - Bill O'Reilly was the first one to uncover the connection with Sami al-Arian and Palestine Jihad.  It was through his continued efforts and document publication that this man was prosecuted to begin with.  That was durng the Bush administration.  Fox has not changed its format regardless of who occupies the White House.

Jeff,  Are you aware that Bill Ayers and Jeremiah Wright have both been visitors at the White House?

Not only did Obama have close associations with them in the past - he continues to do so while living in the house of the people.  That is disgraceful in my opinion.

Unrepentive terrorist Bill Ayers being entertained in the White House.  Now that says a lot.

Lisa,  What Jeff said is fact.  It is not slanderous to make a statement of fact.

Valerie Jarrett - Obama's closest associate grew up with Bill Ayers.  Her parents were friends with Bill Ayers father.  Bill Ayers fathers bank gave Obama his sweetheart mortgage on his mansion in Chicago.  On the same street as his good friend Bill Ayers.  Slander or fact?

Valerie Jarret is a slum lord in Chicago and a product of Chicago politics.  Property she owned was slated to be used to create housing for Olympic athletes if Chicago got the nod for the Olympics.  Slander or fact?

Van Jones the Obama Czar who resigned after his exposure by Fox, was also affiliated with Bill Ayers and other subversive organizations.  Fact or slander?

Jeff Jones of the Apollo Alliance, a co-founder with Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground wrote the stimulus package for Obama.  He is an adviser to Obama. Jeff Jones helps institutions write grants to get those stimulus dollars.  Fact or slander?

These are facts and they are totally related to the political climate that permeates this administration.

Michael, some of us get it.  Others are unable to process what is right in front of them.  They never heard of the Progressive Movement and how they tried to take our country over in the past.  They hear the word progressive and think it means forward thinking.

They have not studied history to understand how socialism takes hold and chokes the life out of a country.  Some recommended reading would be the blogs of Jon Zolsky who came here to flee a communist country. Read what he sees happening in this country and how it compares to Russia.

I'll state it again for those who do not know. I am a registered Democrat and have been my entire life.  I have researched and checked the facts.  I am seeing that which I ignored before.  What I see - I do not like. I have never been political before, but as a Patriot I feel compelled to speak out and educate everyone who is capable of free thought.

The new Islamic envoy will tell the President what he wants the President to believe, not the truth.
