Robert Gibbs: As press secretary,
I was ordered not to acknowledge
the existence of the drone program

Washington Examiner [DC], by Charlie Spiering

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/24/2013 1:12:54 PM

During a discussion about President Obama’s lack of transparency about the drone program, former White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs explained on MSNBC this morning that he was ordered to never acknowledge the existence of the drone program. “One of the first things they told me was, you are not even to acknowledge the drone program, you are not even to discuss that it exists,” Gibbs said frankly, explaining why he could never be forthcoming about the issue with White House reporters. Gibbs added that in his opinion, the Obama administration’s denial of the program “undermines people’s confidence overall

Since the Obama administration withholds the truth from the White House Press Corps, its members cannot be considered to be fulfilling the function of actual journalists, which is to learn the truth and disseminate it to the public.

Instead, the members of the White House Press Corps are functioning as props, or movie extras, in the Obama administrations´ phony, lying presentations of actual White House press conferences.

By so doing, the White House Press Corps members knowingly conspire with the Obama administration to disseminate misleading information to the readers and viewers they´re supposed to be enlightening with the truth.

I wouldn´t be so quick to dismiss the significance of this surprising admission. It´s one thing for conservative commentators to claim Obama´s flunkies are lying, but quite another thing to have them admitting it. This will have an effect in both the media and the public over time as other developments evolve.

FTA:
´´One of the first things they told me was, you are not even to acknowledge the drone program, you are not even to discuss that it exists,´´ Gibbs said frankly, explaining why he could never be forthcoming about the issue with White House reporters.´´

Who ordered it? The White House is a building - it doesn´t ´order´ anybody to do or not do anything. It´s a building. Who IN the White House issued these orders? Who are ´they´?

Gibbs added that in his opinion, the Obama administration’s denial of the program ´´undermines people’s confidence overall in the decisions that their government makes.´´

Gee whiz, Genius. Ya think? Everything they do undermines our confidence overall in the decisions THEIR ´government´ makes.

Sorry, I´m probably not as up-to-speed on this as I should be, but are we talking about the use of domestic drones or drones used in war zones/fight against terrorism. If it´s the latter, then I have to say that the less we know, the better. If the former, then, yes, there are lots of questions that need to be answered.

The "War on Terror" isn´t an excuse to go lobbing drones wherever the president feels like it. Our government is an out-of-control monster and has been for years. When we look back years from now, we´ll see that the biggest damage from 9/11 was our country´s slide into tyranny and authoritarianism as a result.

All the secrecy about the drone program is 100 percent political "cover your a**", and nothing to do with operational security.

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Sen.

Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

NATO announced Wednesday that it is enhancing its military footprint on its eastern flank, and the alliance’s top military commander in Europe hinted that in light of Russia’s recent aggression, it is “important that we take a pause and determine what is appropriate for [the size of] U.S. forces in Europe.” The number of U.S. troops in Europe has dropped dramatically since the Soviet Union collapsed. More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
