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:
Publicly-available photos of real father, Frank Marshall Davis, or "Pops," as described in Liar´s so-called "autobiography."

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!

With one month until Election Day, Republicans´ chances for retaking the Senate and picking up seats in the House are improving. The GOP has been buoyed by positive public polling, while red-state Democrats are still struggling to find distance from President Obama. There are bright spots and even some unexpected new targets on the map for both parties, but the overall national environment seems to have ticked a bit toward Republicans.The GOP needs to win a net of six seats to retake control of the Senate, and Republicans seem better-positioned to do so now than they did through much of

President Obama famously derided the Supreme Court over the Citizens United decision in a State of the Union address. Obama’s bashing of that First Amendment decision is also central in the scandal involving Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status. Lois Lerner followed Obama’s lead to suppress speech. Thursday, in an address at Northwestern University, however, Obama unwittingly undermined a whole regime of regulation of election-related speech. As reported at The Daily Caller: President Barack Obama gave GOP campaigns and right-wing super PAC’s across the nation fodder to

One would think that Friday’s announcement that the unemployment rate had fallen to its lowest point since Barack Obama took office would be good news for the president. Yet as the unemployment rate has declined, President Obama’s job approval rating has worsened. So it’s not clear how much of an effect modest changes in the economy’s condition will have on his approval ratings. (Snip) The latest unemployment numbers will be the last ones released before the midterm elections, and Mr. Obama is trying to leverage them to his party’s advantage. On Thursday, he spoke at Northwestern University and talked up

The surprising Ebola connection to chocolate

Just when you thought you knew all the consequences of the Ebola pandemic, here’s another one: it could affect the supply of chocolate. Of course that doesn’t rise to the seriousness of illness and death, but it does show how much Ebola affects trade and production. An estimated 70% of the world’s cocoa beans come from the West African countries of Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Cameroon. Ivory Coast is the world’s largest producer, exporting 37.8% of the world’s cocoa, according to the Wall Street Journal. (In fact, Ivory Coast just posted a record harvest and the government increased its

The Obama administration found itself on defense Friday after former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta criticized the White House for its policies on Iraq, with the State Department and others publicly disputing his claims. Panetta chided the president´s team in his forthcoming memoir, excerpts of which have been published in the media. He alleges the White House didn´t try hard enough to strike a deal with Iraq in 2011 to leave a residual force of U.S. troops behind, in turn opening the door for the region to become a haven for the Islamic State. In newly published excerpts, he also criticized

The dictionary defines nepotism as, “the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives or friends, especially by giving them jobs.” It perhaps should come to no surprise to anyone even remotely aware of the ethical scandals permeating Democrats in the State Senate that a new scandal should emerge surrounding untoward hiring practices in the State Senate, and a cover-up by Senate Leadership. (More on that cover-up in a moment.) First I think it is important to recap that the Senate, as an institution, is clearly at an ethical low point.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
