NY Times Editor Jill Abramson:
Obama White House the ‘Most
Secretive’ I’ve Ever Dealt With

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/23/2014 8:54:10 PM

New York Times editor Jill Abramson sat down for an in-depth interview with Al Jazeera America recently. She discussed issues ranging from Edward Snowden to the the future of the print industry, but in perhaps the most candid moment of the interview, Abramson admitted that of all the White Houses she’s ever dealt with, the Obama administration is hands-down the “most secretive” thus far. Abramson did not weigh in on the Times editorial calling for Snowden to receive clemency, but when asked how the Obama administration ranks in its relationship with the press compared to other administrations, Abramson was very blunt

Comments:
And yet the NYT will still love, support and campaign for Barack Hussein 0bama! I´m sure all of two people saw this since it was on Al Jazeera.

Catholics are more open-minded, and less defensive, in their views of the Pope (not just this Pope, but any Pope) then the NYT and the MSM are about this President.

The explanation for this dates back to the October Revolution of 1917, when Alexander Karensky put it plainly: "There are no enemies to my left." If you are a leftist, you believe in the ultimate good of the pure socialist system. The march from here to there remains long and painful (though slightly less long and slightly less painful than a generation ago). To achieve absolute power requires loyalty to Party and discipline. Obama is not only a man of the left, but in terms of western civilization, the most powerful leftist ever. All embarrassments must be ignored first, then defended. Of course a leftist government is secretive. It is in the nature of the beast. Honest and transparency are the first casualties of socialism. Abramson´s surprise admission notwithstanding, in the end the NYT will find secrecy, along with the lies, to be acceptable. No one appreciates this more, or will admit it less, than the socialists themselves.

" This is the most secretive White House that, at least as a journalist, I have ever dealt with." She agreed that this ends up making it more difficult for the paper to do its job.

Had the paper done its job before O was elected, we wouldn´t have the secrecy (and the chaos) we´ve got now.

I am not sympathetic to how hard Ms. Abrahamson finds her job. She was warned and chose to ignore it. How do you not vet the first black President? Because he´s black?

Please.

Well, Jilly, if you don´t like his secrecy, the solution is to delve into the issues yourself, find the truth and report it. You can start with ALL of his sealed documents.

Oh, but you really don´t want to know the truth do you? Or you already know it but don´t want to publish it lest it destroy your black messiah.

Stop complaining and do your job.

The only revelation in this article is that Abramson and her colleagues consider themselves qualified to decide what information will or will not harm national security. Like Ben Bradlee of WAPO before her, she actually considers herself the government above the government.

Not that the government (the official one) all that competent or trustworthy, but betting our futures on the agenda of the NYT is a dismaying prospect.

For decades, this kind of secrecy has been known as,
STEALTH COMMUNISM, TWO STEPS FORWARD, ONE STEP BACKWARD.
De Blasio comes out, sounds like the average Communist, agitating fool. Then, Cuomo comes out of virtual obscurity and sounds like another Communist agitating, dictating fool. Then, as if it were parrt of the AmCom Party Line, Comunist Crime Boss Schumer, comes out with an absolutely absurd notion that he´s going to "abolish" the magnificent nationwide informal millions of Tea Party citizens who make up the newest elements of the American Revolution to.Preserve Freedom ! Meanwhile, almost daily, trillion aired socialist Bloomberg declares drinking bottled water is a crime, one controlling idiocy after another.

The good news: soft socialists like Jill are starting to comment on leaks in the dam. Time for Jill and her timidly questioning groups of so called fellow reporters, to get off their asses, and actually start to investigate
The mass greed and lobbying criminality going on right in front of their glazed over eyes.

I´m stunned, the most secretive campaign has led to the most secretive presidency, stunned I say. Not that the man didn´t put plenty of information out there to cause a logical person´s hair to burst into flames, but what conclusions did Ms. Abramson draw from the sealing of his records, transcripts? Was she at all puzzled to see his brochure claiming to have been born in Kenya? He´d be Mr. transparent because he said so? That´s some fine investigative journalism right there.

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came.

A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen.

Every year the White House hosts an Easter egg roll, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are trying to get the White House to use plastic eggs instead of real, hard-boiled ones with a new campaign specifically targeting First Lady Michelle Obama. And a big part of the campaign is a video PETA put online featuring little girls telling Obama they’re not mad, just “disappointed.” The little girls try to convince her to break tradition, asking, “If all the other first ladies jumped off a bridge, would you?” and asking her to put herself in the shoes of the chickens that had to lay all those thousands and thousands of eggs.

WASHINGTON—Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections. Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room. A spokesman for Mr. Boehner didn´t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Barack Obama

One of the few laws of political science is that when governments make mistakes, they tend to be whoppers. Luckily for them, the public’s memory is short, and the outrage of today soon declines into the apathy of tomorrow. From several articles published in a recent edition of the British Medical Journal, it appears that many governments around the world, including those of Britain and the US, may have made such a mistake in stockpiling billions of dollars’ worth of anti-flu medications, bought principally from Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world as measured by capitalization. First the governments overestimated the

Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent.

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.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
