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.

(Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine?

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

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.

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

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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

The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted
