White House Press Secretary Claims
Transparency Criticism Unfounded

Washington Free Beacon [DC], by CJ Ciaramella

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/14/2014 4:20:06 AM

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the Obama administration is “absolutely” the most transparent presidency in history, contrary to recent complaints from press groups. “There are a number of steps that we’ve taken to give people greater insight into what’s happening at the White House,” Earnest said in a Sunday interview with CNN’s “Reliable Sources.” Thirty-eight national press groups and transparency organizations, including the Society of Professional Journalists and the Poynter Institute, sent a letter to the White House last week criticizing the Obama administration’s “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies.” “Over the past two

Let´s give Dear Leader Barack Hussein some credit here - it´s actually hard to be transparent when the White House is constantly surrounded by a massive, protective blockade of MSM propaganda. I mean, that´s hard for anyone to see through.

The earnest Mr. Earnest has already jumped the shark.

Let´s see the *physical* copy of the birth certificate and then the college transcripts, then on down the long list of "undisclosed" Obama history. Then, we´ll talk.

Not to get personal, but I thought Jay Carney was the worst press secretary ever. Then along comes this little Stepford Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, and he has proven himself to be worse. He has a shifty eyed glance that sets my teeth on edge probably because I know the truth will never be told by anyone in the Obama administration.

The press corps should go in there every day with the determination to get to the truth. If you put pressure on Obamabots they will crack. The truth will be their downfall. The media just has to have the resolve to challenge them repeatedly with the facts and not let them get away with blatant lies. The truth, if told, will set us free from this administration. The day they lose control of the narrative is the day things will change.

Poor Josh, so earnest and eager to be somebody important, is willing to sell his soul and lie to America´s collective face every time he mounts the podium. Slick in his DC duds, he dutifully reads the talking points as written for him. When, like his predecessor, he has no answer, he wings it, expecting to be believed.

It is beyond comprehension that anyone would want this job in return for his reputation. Ditto Psaki and her equally pathetic attempts to make this POTUS sound credible.

Thirty-eight national press groups and transparency organizations,... sent a letter to the White House last week criticizing the Obama administration’s “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies.

Even the media are saying this Administration is not just "politically driven", but is the least transparent in history, yet starry-eyed true believers´ attempts at defending this POTUS are taken seriously.

You cannot get answers unless you ask the questions. When the PS lies, ask again and again and again and tell him he is lying. Show him no respect until he tells the truth
That is the job of the WH Press Corps. Why even bother with the press conferences unless the hard questions are asked and answered truthfully. When a person lies, tell him no one believes what he is saying and to send in someone who will be truthful. There would be a new Press Secy on a daily basis.

Add to #10 request:

One look at real father, Chicago CPUSA leader (and later on, Honolulu denizen) "Pops," and presto! Explanations for every life-and-death lie uttered with malice aforethought by Liar become clear as crystal.

What a great photo-op it would be, if journalists would attend press conferences, armed with side-by-side photos of Liar with his real father.

Why on earth would anyone want to listen to the White House press secretary? It should be humiliating to allow oneself to be fed a continuous line of bull. Would it not serve the same purpose for the news people to give their own line of bull to their own questions? It is undignified to allow oneself to be lied to. What possible positive value can be gained by attending propaganda sessions orchestrated by the White House? Those who attend these bull sessions should feel deep shame knowing that the attitude toward them by the secretary is one of disrespect. Anyone with an ounce of pride would refuse to attend. It is well known that nearly all media people are Democrats. But in spite of that it is still degrading to pass on other people´s lies. They should take the "high" road and fabricate their own!

America has a doomsday plane. Actually it has four of them. But the US government does not — repeat, DOES NOT — talk openly about its doomsday planes. The doomsday plane is like a mirror to Air Force One — a great big flying working office for the president and his or her staff. But while Air Force One is your everyday, garden variety kind of presidential flying office, the doomsday plane is built and equipped to keep the US government running in the event of a nuclear war or other disaster. Here’s some of the stuff we know about it: It’s a converted 747 called an E-4B, also referred to as the “National Airborne Operations

DENVER- Colorado’s Department of Motor Vehicles mistakenly issued U.S. citizen driver’s licenses to 524 non-citizens, including some illegal immigrants, CBS4 has learned. The licenses look like those given to state residents. The DMV blamed a software problem at a contractor, who is working with DMV to retrieve the licenses and re-issue correct IDs. The licenses were mailed at the beginning of September. The contractor said it learned on Sept. 8 that the printing error occurred Aug. 8. “What happened is there was a software update error on the part of the vendor,” said Director of Dept. of Revenue Barbara Brohl.

A day after Secretary of State John Kerry cautioned against "war fever," administration officials on Friday said the U.S. is indeed waging a war against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, otherwise known as ISIL). However, the administration is still trying to draw a distinction between this new "war" and the previous war the U.S. waged in Iraq, which included putting American troops on the ground in Iraq for combat operations. "The United States is at war with ISIL in the same way that we are at war with al Qaeda and its al Qaeda affiliates all around

Qua speech, Barack Obama’s address Wednesday on the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria was surprisingly terrible: a disorganized mess, insincere and unconvincing. To appreciate just how bad and bizarre it was, compare the president’s speech announcing a new air campaign in Iraq and Syria to Dwight Eisenhower’s 1958 statement on his decision to intervene in Lebanon with 14,000—14,000!—troops. The statement contains no chest-thumping about America’s leadership in science and medicine. No pivot to the auto industry and medical research. Eisenhower simply explained what had been done, and why.

Throughout his presidency, President Obama has emphasized one point while talking about Islamist extremists: They are not practicing Islam, he has said, they are perverting it. He took that a step further Wednesday night. While announcing that he´s expanding the campaign against the Islamic State extremist group into Syria, Obama said flatly that this group, which is trying to install a caliphate in the Middle East, "is not Islamic." He didn´t say they are perverting their religion; he said they´re not even part of that religion.

Body odour is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. It does discriminate between cabbies who smell like an open sewer and those who don’t. It further prejudges what a good smell is.
