Coverup! LA Times suppresses incriminating obama video

Update: Any good sleight-of-hand requires a small distraction in order for the illusion to be successful. So it has become with the Rashid Khalidi story. Attempting to distract concerned voters from the attention given to Obama’s close friendship with the former PLO spokesman, 0-bot operatives have fanned out across the web to put forth the narrative that this is no big deal, because McCain was responsible for giving Khalidi’s group money through his chaimanship of the IRI. The exact quote of the 0-bot narrative has now appeared on the internet some 534 times (and climbing).

The distraction ignores the salient fact: McCain is a known quantity. Obama is not. The American People know John McCain: his military career, his legislative career, and his unquestioned love of country. The same is not known about the Democrat nominee. Obama’s past is opacity defined, and the people have a right to know much more about this man than has been gleaned from a media widely viewed as being “in the tank for Obama.” …………..

end of update

from LAT:

John McCain’s presidential campaign Tuesday accused the Los Angeles Times of “intentionally suppressing” a videotape it obtained of a 2003 banquet where then-state Sen. Barack Obama spoke of his friendship with Rashid Khalidi, a leading Palestinian scholar and activist.

The Times first reported on the videotape in an April 2008 story about Obama’s ties with Palestinians and Jews as he navigated the politics of Chicago. The report included a detailed description of the tape, but the newspaper did not make the video public.

The Times is now claiming that they promised a source not to release the 2003 video … funny how they have waited so long to make this piece of information public.

The entire matter smacks of a Watergate-style coverup of the highest order. The LA Times is on the wrong side of this issue because the public’s right to know the truth is the sole purpose of press freedom. This is crucial evidence in the court of public opinion, and to deny the American People the opportunity to view the actual smoking gun evidence is inexcusable.

  1. I wonder what their purpose was in revealing that they actually had the tape?
    They ought to go ahead and release it now, since they have made that admission.
    Unless the tape is even more damning than the knowledge of B-HO’s presence there.

  2. you’re up early this morning

  3. It is my custom.
    Et vous?

  4. couldn’t sleep. I woke up around 4 — wide awake.
    Things going on at work are driving me

  5. Dang.
    Sorry to hear that.
    Hope it ain’t a short drive.
    At least(or rather hopefully) this time next week, some of the uncertainty we are dealing with, will be removed.
    /psst..look up

  6. Best wishes.
    Had my first cup of java, and the dawn of my crack is imminent.
    Time to hit it.

  7. Good Morning nuke! I’ve found the transcript of the video. Here you go.
    That HillBuzz is a pretty good site….

  8. that was pretty funny.
    I do likes me some pumas

  9. More McCain Moronism.

    During the 1990s, while he served as chairman of the International Republican Institute (IRI), McCain distributed several grants to the Palestinian research center co-founded by Khalidi, including one worth half a million dollars.

    A 1998 tax filing for the McCain-led group shows a $448,873 grant to Khalidi’s Center for Palestine Research and Studies for work in the West Bank. (See grant number 5180, “West Bank: CPRS” on page 14 of this PDF.)

    The relationship extends back as far as 1993, when John McCain joined IRI as chairman in January. Foreign Affairs noted in September of that year that IRI had helped fund several extensive studies in Palestine run by Khalidi’s group, including over 30 public opinion polls and a study of “sociopolitical attitudes.”

  10. Much as I detest the default “the status quo is fine, Barack is scary” bias of the MSM, I think they don’t want to get suckered again with an Ashley Todd story. So the LATimes may like the effect that saying they have a video produces (and love the website visits), releasing it wouldn’t help them at all (see above).

  11. Did someone fart ?

  12. O-bot alert!

  13. this is rich … from the 0-bot, “the status quo is fine, Barack is scary” bias of the MSM,

    Brock O’bamaworld is a bizarre place indeed.

  14. The zero-bots have been very busy this morning. Troll “J Marra’s” exact quote has appeared on the internet exactly 518 times …
    Sounds like they are more than a little worried.

  15. And they should be. They’re waking from that trance The One put them under and are seeing the harsh reality out there.

  16. 632 now. The O’troll is hard at it.

  17. Robots and artificial intelligence, have always been fascinating to me.
    Maybe one day, they will get all the glitches worked out. Til then, good thing they don’t vote…….as often as they post.

    Barack is scary bias of the MSM…..ROTFLMAO!

  18. Wow, your intense. Can u explain to me what is so bad about his relationship with Khalidi. From reports he has never represented the PLO and if he did, so what. Israel has been unfair in its treatment of the Palestinians and Nakba resulting in hundreds of thousands of Palestinians being displaced from their lands. Disagreeing with how a nation treated a certain part of its people isn’t wrong. speaking out on the cruel treatment on those people isn’t wrong and telling a different side to strife that’s occuring instead of just the pro israeli side isn’t wrong. Cause as our great nation was becoming a world super power and fighting facism abroad, african american, hispanics, asian americans and jews were being treated as second class citizens and openly preaching jim crow laws and segregation at home.

  19. Anthony,
    Have you researched Khalidi, thoroughly? Don’t bother with wiki, they have locked his page until after the election.
    By being the former Director of the PLO press agency and onetime moderator of the PLO Advisory Committee, he was allied with a terrorist organization. Just as B-HO has allied himself with known domestic terrorist, Ayers and Dorhn, it is further proof of B-HO’s poor character.
    You bring up Al Nakba. Do you know what that term means? Not just to the Paleostinians, but to the Arab world? It means “the catastrophe,” and does so for the reason that the Arab world finds most unpleasant, a loss of honor. You’ve been brainwashed into believing the Israelis have mistreated the Paleos, but the opposite is the truth. Israel has done everything possible, to find peace with their neighbor, but they still get attacked with missiles, and suicide bombers. To people like Khalidi, and his cohorts like Ali Abunimah, they think the answer is the destruction of Israel, not a peaceful solution. For me, the answer to the Paleostinian problem, is their complete removal from their territory, and sent to other Arab countries…oh…wait…they tried that, and the Jordanians and Egyptians sent them back. Must be something about the mentality of the Paleos, that not even their Arab neighbors want them.
    As an exercise, you should look up how many Nobel prize winners are Arab, and how many are Jewish. It’s revealing as to the level of functioning the two are. To fully understand how this problem has progressed, you need to go back to the original Palestinian Mandate, at the end of WWI. Also, look up the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, a Nazi supporter in WWII, and one that Arafat was related to.
    Yeah, those Jim Crow and Black Code laws were a disgrace, that the Democrat party foisted upon American society. Glad they are gone.

    You really need to see this video, and read info to verify how truthful the vid is, then you will know what is wrong with Khalidi.

  20. Since you have so much information I’m not prevy to, explain to me why the Palestinians should be forced to leave a territory to which they were on the land and established a home?

  21. Has anyone looked into the LA tape as a matter for Homeland Security ? Seeing Obamais running for the top of the chain of command it only reasons that you look into any associations with known terrorists. We cant have a terrorist loving President. Unless he has something to hide where is the hard. Wait its the hard question again. the DNC says run a way.
    Under the Patriot Act they don’t have to give it to GOP but they do have to turn it in to Homeland Security .
    email your congressman NOW put the word out to all that will listen.

  22. Anthony,
    the information is readily available, for you to seek out.
    Jews have lived on that land for thousands of years. If you had bothered to watch the video, it explains, even Abu Mazen Mahmoud Abbas of Fatah wrote in his book, that the Arabs/Palestinians were told to get out of the area before the five Arab Armies attacked Israel in 1948. Some left on their own, most were forced out, and some were even arrested for not leaving. This information is nothing new.
    As for my stating the Paleos should leave Jewish land, it is the only way there will ever be peace in Israel. The Paleos have always wanted to rid the world of Jews, which is why the Grand Mufti even created a division of muslim men, which were attached to the German Army. They were allied with Hitler in his desire to exterminate the Jews, long before Israel became a state.
    Once again, there is a wealth of information on this subject going back to how the Paleos got their name from the Romans.
    Consider this one thing.
    In the entire Arab world, or for that matter, the entire Muslim world, there is not one university in the top five hundred, while there are six from Israel. That one tiny country, that has had to fight and claw it’s way into existence, with hostile neighbors, so they can claim a tiny section of land, sixty percent of which was desert when they were given the go ahead by the UN. They have six of the top five hundred universities in the world, with a total population of approximately seven million, versus a muslim world of over a billion.
    No, the conflict isn’t about land, that is a deception of the highest order.

  23. They lock up bookies. They threw Pete Rose out of the Hall of Fame for betting for/against his team. They have RICO laws for conspiracy-minded people who act on their plan. I say it’s time to lock these b*st*rds up and throw away the keys. THEY are the ones trying to steal an election instead of informing the public. They are abusing the public’s trust, if we had any. That should negate their secrecy rights. BTW, if only they had been talking about national security secrets…

  24. Videos, Videos Everywhere!…

    Today I am going to give you the links to these videos, because I have too many to post here. I can tell you that my subscriptions to Blackfive, PascoGOP, and machosauceproduction. MachoSauceProduction is my newest subscription, and I’m very excited…

  25. I am so glad to see why the Arabs are living on Israel’s land. I knew they did not belong there. The land between the Great Sea and the Euphrates River has belonged to the Israelites for more than 4,000 years. God gave them the land through a covenant, and He does not break His covenants. (Genesis 15:18, Joshua 1:4, plus other scriptures) To see the outcome of the next war against Israel, read Ezekiel 38 and 39, where God will rain down hail stones on the enemies who come against Israel – the same thing he did to Sodom and Gomorrah and three more cities for committing the abominable sins (homosexual) completely destroying them. Besides Obama standing with the Arabs (probably his kin – who knows?), another reason no ‘true’ Christian can vote for Obama is because he stands behind those who support the same abominable sins and also those who commit murder (abortions). I see that God is beginning to separate the wheat from the tares. (Matthew 13:37-40) For the first time I am seeing ‘professing’ Christians being exposed. Only the ‘possessing’ Christians will make it to heaven. I have doubted some who claimed to be Christians, and when I find them defending Obama, then I know what I have been seeing about them is true. I do not confront them by saying that they have been deceived and need to get saved, I just pray for them. I do try to make them see the need to not vote for Obama. By the way, if I hear from God, and I believe I do, McCain will win! (PS: To see what will happen to Damascus, see Isaiah 17:1) Here is what I received on my email this morning:
    Obama’s statements from Khalidi tape to rile up the audience during a
    toast. He congratulated Khalidi saying. “Israel has no
    God-given right to occupy Palestine” plus there’s been
    “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.” It
    would be really controversial if it got out. That’s why they will not even let a
    transcript get out… (Obama and his followers are on a collision course with God.)

  26. Reba, you are correct. That land belongs to the Jews, and no one else.
