Bob Woodward says he was
threatened by White House

CNN, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/27/2013 10:05:26 PM

Veteran journalist Bob Woodward said Wednesday he was threatened by a senior Obama administration official following his reporting on the White House´s handling of the forced federal spending cuts set to take effect on Friday. "They´re not happy at all," he said on CNN´s "The Situation Room," adding that an e-mail from a senior administration official - who he would not name - communicated a message which caused him great concern. "It was said very clearly, you will regret doing this," he said. Woodward penned a 2012 book reporting that the idea for the spending cuts,

I guess the Second Amendment is the only protection we have against this White House.

I wonder if the Nixon admin ever threatened Woodward or Bernstein, or anyone else in the media. Obama has threatened many journalists, namely those at Fox. The first amendment is really pesky for Obama. Almost as pesky as the second amendment. In this age of Obama, if you like the first amendment, you better love the second.

It stands to reason that if Woodward is threatened at the beginning of Obama´s fifth year, there have to have been many others in the prior four years. Obama & Company obviously feel that now they can get away with anything. Good for you Mr. Woodward. Now I´d like to see other journalists come forward, and when they do they should be welcomed, not chastised.

Letting criminals loose
Threatening journalists
Arming terrorists
Pumping money into our economy
Dumping cash into global warming
Extravagant vacations
Spying on Americans with drones
Benghazi
Obamacare
Kerry as Secretary of State
Hagel as Secretary of Defense
Snubbing Israel
Apologizing for America
Attacks on 2nd Amendment
Fort Hood attacks not terrorism
Fast and Furious
Stimulus spending
More debt than all other Presidents, combined

We do not have an Obama problem. He is the symptom. I am pretty much convinced that our nation is under judgement. In retrospect, 9/11 was an apocolyptic event. If ancient Israel is any example, our best days are not only behind us, our days may be over.

The arogance of the abomination administration is what will bring it down, and I suspect it will crumble.

It´s used separate phones, e-mail accounts, false names for those items, and I´m sure much more illicit means to hide from scrutiny and transparency.

Threatening a journalist of Woodward´s stature isn´t smart - he´s been there nearly 40 years and they´ll be gone in a couple.
I´m sure other journalists are ready to break-out and report the pulitzer prize winning stories to come out of this regime.(and remember, Hillary is lurking in the shadows)

Mr Woodward has integrity, while the Obama Administration cannot even spell the word. Just wonder if other journalists are going to let Mr Woodward get all the glory. Maybe they will finally stop kissing Obama´s butt and start reporting the truth about the current
Administration. There is enough information to keep them busy for years.

Since Woodward is a Democrat and Democrats can only advance their agenda by lying about it, one must wonder what is driving him to expose Obama like this. Has Woodward finally admitted to himself that after Watergate his old Democrat party was hijacked by the America-hating, enemy-loving socialist Left, with Obama now in the cockpit on a suicide mission? Has he suffered some personal slight from a White House demanding journalists do the exact opposite of what they did during Watergate, namely, cover-up for POTUS? Has he finally just succumbed to pangs of conscience, seeing every single one of his colleagues in the MSM behave like a mindless slave of Dear Leader?

Telling the truth is so foreign, so anathema, so verboten to any Democrat, journalist or otherwise, that one must search for underlying reasons in those rare occasions when it happens.

Man held on $1 million bail
in Friday shooting

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

The first family attended Easter services Sunday at the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, a Northwest Washington congregation that welcomed the Obamas on the eve of the president’s first inauguration. The Obamas’ motorcade left the White House shortly before 10 a.m. (Snip) The motorcade pulled up to the church, about four miles away, just after 10. The first family arrived through a tented entrance and sat in the second pew in a mostly, but not completely filled church, joining an estimated 250 others. The president wore a light khaki suit. The first lady was wearing a cream dress and sweater. Daughters

Clearwater doctor unveils secrets of Shroud

CLEARWATER — In the mid-1970s, Wayne Phillips saw a television program telling the story of the Shroud of Turin, a centuries-old linen cloth that bears the image of a crucified man. At first, he was miffed. Years of Catholic schooling — Jesuit High School in Tampa and Notre Dame University — and he had never known about this artifact? (He would later learn that it was a delicate subject at the Vatican.) A doctor, he has a curious mind. A mind shaped by logic and by science. But as a Catholic, he understands some beliefs are still a mystery. He

WASHINGTON — IT’S weird to be jealous of your car. But I am. Men look at my car with such naked lust, their eyes devouring the curves and chrome, that I often feel as though I’m intruding on an intimate moment. Women like it, too. They sometimes grin and give it a thumbs up as it growls by, and one girlfriend fondly refers to it as “the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Goddess car.” But the icon evokes a special feeling in men. It’s the Proustian madeleine of cars, stirring old dreams and new. Guys sometimes follow in the American beauty’s

California Unemployment Holds

California’s unemployment rate is rotten and holding steady. In March, according to the Los Angeles Times, the rate was 8.1%. In February, it was exactly the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the state only added 11,800 net new jobs in March, many of them in construction, government, education, and health services. The greatest gains were in professional and business services, with 3,100 new positions. But the jobs numbers in hospitality, manufacturing, and leisure dipped, and the biggest drop came in financial activities, as the slowing rate of mortgages forced banks to fire employees.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
