Stanley Kurtz And ABC Targets
Of The Obama Hit Squad
An ABC reporter was arrested in Denver for taking video footage from a public sidewalk. ABC:
Police in Denver arrested an ABC News producer today as he and a camera crew were attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting at the Brown Palace Hotel.
Police on the scene refused to tell ABC lawyers the charges against the producer, Asa Eslocker, [Why, it sounds like his Civil Liberties are being violated! This should have The Liberals puking blood! Where are they? Why are they so silent? Could it be because they've pleged their total allegiance to Obama? - Drake] who works with the ABC News investigative unit.
A cigar-smoking Denver police sergeant, accompanied by a team of five other officers, first put his hands on Eslocker's neck, then twisted the producer's arm behind him to put on handcuffs.
A police official later told lawyers for ABC News that Eslocker is being charged with trespass, interference, and failure to follow a lawful order. He also said the arrest followed a signed complaint from the Brown Palace Hotel.
What is it the reporter was trying to cover?
From The Scoop:
An ABC News producer was arrested outside the Brown Palace Hotel as he attempted to chronicle attendees at a private breakfast held by a Democratic Party campaign committee. ABC said in a statement that Asa Eslocker and a camera crew were "attempting to take pictures on a public sidewalk of Democratic senators and VIP donors leaving a private meeting."
"We're getting under their skin, I think," said Brian Ross, ABC News correspondent whose "Money Trail" reports are running every night this week and next from both nominating conventions.
ABC isn't the only one getting the heave-ho from the jackboot licking Obama Cultists.
Stanley Kurtz, a columnist for National Review is a target of the Obama Hit Squad as well. Associated Content:
The Barack Obama Campaign seriously does not like discussion or reporting on the relationship between their candidate and the unrepentant terrorist, William Ayers. Recently National Review columnist Stanley Kurtz found out just how the Obama people don't like it.
Stanley Kurtz was on a local radio talk show in Chicago hosted by Milt Rosenberg to discuss his research of the archives of the Chicago Annenberg Challenge where Barack Obama and William Ayers both worked. Upon hearing of the interview, the Barack Obama campaign send a mass email to its supporters urging them to flood the radio station's phone lines and send emails denouncing Stanley Kurtz and his investigation.
There was clearly a campaign to jam the phone lines of the radio station will calls that not just disagreed with Stanley Kurtz, but demanded that he be taken off the air and his investigation stopped. [So the Obama Cultists are practicing the same "silencing of their critics" as they falsely allege the Bush Administration of doing, are they? - Drake]
National Review's Guy Benson offered a flavor of some of the calls:
"One female caller, when pressed about what precisely she objected to, simply replied, "We just want it to stop!" Another angry caller was asked what "lies" Kurtz had told in any of his reporting on Barack Obama. The thoughtful response? "Everything he said is dishonest." The same caller later refused to get into "specifics." Another gentleman called Kurtz "the most un-American person" he'd ever heard. Several of the callers did not even know Stanley's name, most had obviously never read a sentence of his meticulous research, and more than simply read verbatim from the Obama talking points."
The Obama Campaign had been requested to send a representative to appear on the show to offer a response to Stanley Kurtz. Despite the fact that Obama Campaign headquarters was just a few blocks away from the radio station, the campaign demurred.
The Endless Secrecy Around Barack Obama
Just to review, the public cannot get access to paperwork related grants distributed by then-state-legislator Obama (records from 1997 to 2000 aren't available); his state legislative office records (which he says may have been thrown out); he refuses to release a specific list of law clients, instead giving a list of all of his firm's clients, numbering several hundred each year; he won't release his application to the state bar (where critics wonder if he lied in responding to questions about parking tickets and past drug use); he’s never released any legal or billing records to verify that he only did a few hours of work for a nonprofit tied to convicted donor Rezko; and he's never released any medical records, just a one-page letter from his doctor.
Now the University of Illinois at Chicago is denying Stanley Kurtz access to documents relating to the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, a small foundation, founded and inspired by Bill Ayers, for which Obama served as board chairman.
What the hell? Really, what possible reason is there to seal documents like this, beyond saving Obama some embarrassment? And is any fool out there still claiming that they're voting for Obama because the Bush Administration has been too secretive?
The American Public still has no proof that Obama is a United States citizen. From ObamaCrimes.com:
To be eligible to serve as U.S. president, a person must be born in this country. According to Obama's birth certificate, which his campaign posted on its Internet site in June to quell rumors that he is foreign born, the Illinois senator was born in Hawaii on Aug. 6, 1961.
On Thursday, Philip Berg filed a temporary restraining order in federal court to bar Obama from running for president, claiming the Democratic candidate was actually born in Africa.
"We really don't believe he was born in Hawaii," Berg said. "We think he was born in Kenya."
"If he was born in Hawaii, and he was adopted in Indonesia by Lolo Soetoro, (Obama) would lose his citizenship," Berg said.
A 2007 Associated Press photograph, suppressed until now, shows the school register of the child who is today known as Barack Hussein Obama but was officially listed then as Barry Soetoro, whose citizenship was listed as "Indonesian" and whose religion was listed as "Islam." The visual evidence starkly contradicts the Obama campaign's claim that he was not a Muslim and confirms that he is a national of at least one other country.
In addition, it raises the highly problematic issue of what is Obama's official name. If it turns out to (be) Barry Soetoro, and no official change of name was ever made, Obama may face an array of charges of deception and misprision that may throw into doubt, at the very least, his fitness to run.
