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.

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!

WASHINGTON — Congressional investigators using fake identities were able to obtain taxpayer-subsidized health insurance under President Barack Obama’s law, according to testimony to be delivered Wednesday. The nonpartisan Government Accountability Office says its undercover investigators were able to get subsidized health care under fake names in 11 out of 18 attempts. The GAO is still paying premiums for the policies, even as the Obama administration attempts to verify phony documentation. The agency’s findings are contained in testimony to be delivered at a House Ways and Means Committee hearing Wednesday. An advance copy was provided to The Associated Press. Seto Bagdoyan,

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas—Police officers arrested a member of the Salvadoran street gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, early Tuesday morning in Rio Grande City. A police officer patrolling the streets of Rio Grande City shortly after 1 a.m. heard loud music coming from a house. He went to the house to warn the residents about a city ordinance against excessively loud music, said Lieutenant Jose Solis. As the officer approached a house on the 100 block of Pine Street he saw two women outside who ran inside when they saw him, Solis said. Noticing the strange behavior, the officer went

The Obama administration will continue handing out Obamacare subsidies to federal exchange customers despite a federal court’s ruling Tuesday that the subsidies are illegal. A D.C. Court of Appeals panel ruled Tuesday morning that customers in the 36 states that didn’t establish their own exchange and use HealthCare.gov instead cannot be given premium tax credits, according to the text of the Affordable Care Act itself. But the White House said in response that it will continue handing out the billions of taxpayer dollars in subsidies.

At least three states that have large black populations — North Carolina, Louisiana, and Arkansas — are red states with vulnerable Democrat senators up for re-election. Can racism really be as rampant in America as all the current rhetoric implies?

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900.

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight. Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner,
