Bob Woodward says he was
threatened by White House

CNN, by Staff

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.

Al Gore´s youngest daughter has gotten remarried under a historic tree in Santa Monica. Sarah Gore has a very casual outdoor service on Sunday morning outside a coffee shop with her famous father walking across a patch of grass that served as the makeshift aisle. Wearing a loose, off-white lace dress with bell sleeves, Sarah made her way towards her groom, realtor Patrick Maiani, who was waiting for her beside the outline of a heart in the shape of rose petals.The brief service was officiated by a female religious leader and attended by about a dozen invited guests.

As a young reporter, I once expressed shock at how routinely and reflexively government officials lied to the press. A savvy newspaper vet who overheard me just smiled and told me not to take it personally. “Why shouldn’t they lie to you?” the late, great Murray Kempton asked. “They lie to themselves all the time.” His observation came back to me as I read about President Obama’s trip to Asia. He’s going, the White House says, to tell our allies face to face that America is committed more than ever to their security and prosperity. In ordinary times, the trip and

WASHINGTON — Curt Clawson, a businessman who was little known months ago in Southwest Florida, won a contentious GOP primary Tuesday to fill the U.S. House seat left open by the scandalous downfall of Trey Radel.Clawson, 54, pitched himself as an outsider against more established candidates and was embraced by the tea party. He poured more than $2 million into television ads. In one, the former Purdue basketball player challenged President Barack Obama to a three-point contest. The Bonita Springs resident took about 38 percent of the vote in the Congressional District 19 race, besting several rivals, including state Sen.

IRS employees with tax and

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday. The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded. "While not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS’s charge of ensuring the

It seems only yesterday, before the soothing elixir of “hope and change” was spoonfed to us by present-President Barack Obama, that Republicans could disagree with Democrats without being branded “teabaggers,” KKK-members, anarchists, Nazis, bomb throwers, arsonists, political terrorists or extremists. The unspeakable crime of conservatives? Their heartless desire to live their own lives and to be left alone by the bullying U.S. government. What has been the conservative outcry since disco was still a thing? Follow the Constitution, be fiscally responsible, and restore limited government.

SPRINGFIELD — As the General Assembly heads into its final month of session, House Speaker Michael Madigan said Tuesday that he doesn’t have enough votes lined up yet to extend the state’s income tax increase or raise the minimum wage. The speaker, talking to reporters the day he was easily elected to a fifth term as Illinois Democratic Party chairman, said voting to keep the personal income tax rate at 5 percent instead of letting it fall to 3.75 percent on Jan. 1 will be a “difficult roll call.” “Every person in the legislature is going to be called upon

How often have you heard a Democrat prattle on and on about how well Barack Obama has done with the economy, given the mess he inherited? Usually, it’s some version of, “Things are getting better, but the economy the President started with was so awful, so he’s done as well as anyone could expect.”When Ronald Reagan took over from Jimmy Carter in ’81, things were actually worse economically compared to when Obama took over from George W. Bush in ’08. Consider these three important comparisons of economic indicators, then and now: - Unemployment was at 10.8% versus 7.7% - Inflation (Consumer

Obama to free hundreds of drug

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Dole: Cruz, Paul & Rubio

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.
