SCANDAL WEEK DAY 3: Intimidating the Press

Several full blown scandals have bombarded the Obama administration in the past few weeks alone, building on an already impressive list of past scandals. So much has happened recently that one might easily forget about Operation Fast & Furious, the dozens of spectacular green ‘investment’ failures like Solyndra, or even garden variety intimidation like Vice President Biden forcing a veteran ABC news reporter into a storage closet for more than an hour.

It’s basically a full-time job to keep track of all the corruption in this administration, and since we know you are far too busy to pick up a second job chronicling Obama’s lies & abuses, we will attempt to do it for you this week on GlennBeck.com. Day 1 (The NSA), Day 2 (The IRS)

Day 3: Intimidating the Press

The Obama administration bragged about ‘controlling the press’ during the 2008 election and it appears they’ve never stopped trying to control them. When the Associated Press released a bombshell report about how the Obama administration was spying on them, it turned out to be only the beginning. Fox News and CBS would later be victims of an out-of-control administration using the Espionage Act to go after reporters who published articles damaging to the government.

Here’s a timeline with all the key dates and information you need to know (to date) on the press targeting scandal. Bookmark this page & share it because despite being the victim the MSM will still move on.

  • May 18, 2013: Obama says scandals are just ‘politics’.
  • May 20, 2013: Washington Times writer claims there’s another bombshell about to drop.
  • May 24, 2013: Was Gibson Guitar another example of political targeting by Obama DOJ?
  • June 5, 2013: Holder admits, probes got ‘a little out of whack’.

    Even if you want to make the case that Fox News isn’t fair and balanced (it’s the only remaining network that is, due to the fact that it’s the only network that can even spout off anything resembling Conservatism), you have to admit that they at least let Bob Beckel, Juan Williams, and Alan Colmes speak freely.  Nobody within any right wing power structure is trying to silence these guys.
    Why does Fox News get the best ratings?  It’s because they aren’t trumpeting the parroted lines of CBS, NBC, CNN, etc. and the entire Leftist, Communist nomenklatura.  If Fox News gets shut down or censored (I give it five years) then “news” will become a joke.  Obama is trying to systematically shut down people’s intellects.  That way, he hopes, some day nobody will realize that their intelligence is being insulted.

    This has been a coordinated, deliberate, and malicious campaign of oppression of the press, and freedoms of expression, for the sole purpose of enforced compliance to the administrations propaganda.

    Only the leftists, the ones who claim to make people free, see the control of the media and control of what everyone says as ‘freedom’ so long as it tows the current party line. Any change or deviance in the least is grounds for ‘punishment’ that tantamount to charges of treason.

    The NY Times reported today that residents in NY state buying their own policies will see their premiums drop by 50% next year.  This is due to the exchanges being established under the Affordable Care Act.  Well done, President Obama, and thank you!

  • greywolfrs

    You are a liar. The Los Angeles Times reported a couple of months ago that premiums will be going up on the exchanges, from 20 to 60 percent, depending on where one lives.

    P.S. the part you morons missed was people couldn’t afford the premiums in the first place and you think that has magically changed? Wake up and smell what you are shoveling, dunce.

    excerpt out of this link
    ” Beginning in October, individuals in New York City who now pay $1,000 a month or more for coverage will be able to shop for health insurance for as little as $308 monthly. With federal subsidies, the cost will be even lower.”

    my question
    1. does this $308 include the same coverage as the $1000 policy they have now ?
    2. who pays those federal subsidies ? (my guess is the NY taxpayer as well right ?)

  • Guest

    I’ve read some pretty stupid comments on Beck’s website, but “Obama is trying to systematically shut down people’s intellects” wins the prize for today.

    Congratulations! Send Beck $15.00 and he’ll send you your dunce cap.

    “my guess is the NY taxpayer as well right ?”

    I guess that you’re clueless as to what “federal subsidies” means. Makes sense. Anyone who can’t pick up on Beck’s deceitful propaganda can’t be a particularly well informed person.

    I am afraid that most, including Glenn, who my wife and I
    both admire, fail to recognize who is in control of America and the world. Paul
    Warburg, with his henchmen, created the Federal Reserve System and monopoly in
    1913 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Federal_Reserve_System.
    They pushed it past congress and Wilson as a need to streamline banking, who
    didn’t recognize the potential for corruption. If you control a nation’s money,
    you control the nation! Then, Warburg and his cronies needed a way to infiltrate
    industry, academia, and the government so that they could stay “in the
    know” and push their agenda. They founded the Council on Foreign Relations
    in the 1921. Its like minded hierarchy has evolved and infiltrated into
    positions of authority. Make no mistake! Most of these “elite” are
    globalists who want to remain in power and keep their outrageous offshore
    profits. You really believe that they want America to compete against their
    investments, which the US tax payers have funded via THEIR World Bank and
    International Monetary Fund? We paid for foreign aid to build factories and
    other  nations friendly to THEIR
    investments. Bush and Clinton provided great diversions while GAT(WTO) and
    NAFTA divested America. CFR elitists stand in the shadows and “steer”
    congress and the stooge in the WH. They are “Atlas Shrugged” and have
    left us with the mess, regulations, union demands, affirmative action, bill and
    diversions that keep US in debt and chaos. Wake up “sheeple.”

    The obama administration is trying everything they can do to take everyones watch off what is going on.  They have so much to try to cover up, where do they start?  With the Zimmerman case of course.  They are trying to through everyone off the main issues.  Do you really think they care one iota about the young kid that got killed?  I would like to know the reverse kills that are happening each and every day.

    Congrats, to the state run media. They have played the piper for the administration onceagain. The IRS, should be the most talked about thing going on. After all, they will be parceling our healthcare taxes. Not to mention the nationwide snooping, with corporations agreement. Then, there are drones, and snitch on one’s neighbor, if they disagree with any govt policy, they are to report neighbor. But, the state run media has instead totally focused on the GZ case. Even after the law spoke, they wish to continue having him, and now the jury on trial. The incredibile shrinking man, Sharpton, should feel really bad if more people are hurt. It’s over. Get back to the corruption. Today, a court ruled that to have id in WI, was an undue burden. Yet, in immigration bill all US citizens will have to have national id card. Don’t let the media take our focus off what is important!

    I’m not clueless. I know federal subsidies will come from my taxes, that is so gracious under redistribution. Doctors have already fled the area where I live. Ben Bernake, testified today that the small business partnership have said they will only hire part time, if at all because of the obamacare tax. It isn’t going to make much difference if people can afford a insurance policy, if there are no doctors to see. So, then thank the big o, when it goes to one payer system, and everyone finds out that cattle car care isn’t that great!

    The abuses of power this administration has engaged in have become astronomical in number. They have no shame, and will lie about every subject on earth and in heaven. The contempt this POTUS inspires is absolutely the utmost I have ever witnessed in my life. The worst part is all of it is true and has the ring of truth no matter what the liar in chief and his AG say. 

    I personally will never trust another democrat as long as I live – that being said, many republicans are also on that list. It seems the people have very few advocates in the federal government, and the states and local governments are questionable as well. It seems that we have allowed a criminal class of people infiltrate the politician’s ranks in this country and now they seem to be all we have. 

    It is past time to take out the trash – the stench from DC has become quite revolting.

    That is correct. If you have to buy your own individual plan (vs a group plan such as the ones most of us have), your premiums may go down. Of course that  assumes that you have enough wealth to be able to afford it (which most of us don’t.) The irony is that you have to be near the poverty level to get the “breaks” that bring the premium down to the levels the NY Times quoted . The article is misleading, partisan and dishonest.
