“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″

“Not every item of news should be published: rather must
those who control news policies endeavor to make every item
of news serve a certain purpose.”… Joseph Goebbels

“Live Free or Die”…New Hampshire State Motto

From Larry Sinclair December 8, 2011.

“Rush Limbaugh had a good point in his response to Scott from Dallas this afternoon on his Radio Show. Sinclair has already been portrayed as a “kook, wacko, right wing, and extremist” by the Obama “protective services” aka the “media” yet Larry Sinclair and his allegations of Barack Obama engaging in man on man sex and cocaine use are still standing 4 years later.
The question for all of America today is: Are you going to allow the media to continue to fool you and refuse to report the truth about Barack Obama? If the American people sit back and allow the media and the likes of Moveon, Dailykos, DemocraticUnderground, Politico, et al… scare you into silence and/or submission by calling you racist or attacking you on the Internet, then Rush is point on, Obama will never be vetted.

We however believe the thug tactics and attacks used in the 2008 Presidential Campaign by Obama for America, Dailykos, FireDogLake, Huff-N-Puff Post/AOL, CNN, MSNBC et al… will not work in 2012. We believe that America has decided it will not be silenced by being called a racist.

Larry Sinclair has not been scared into silence or submission in four years and he most certainly is not going to be silent in 2012.”

One of the strongest reasons for covering the Larry Sinclair allegations and subsequent stories here was because the Obama camp executed a well orchestrated attempt to keep this information from the American people. The mainstream media was part of this effort.

This was not going to happen on my watch.

Whether or not you believe Larry Sinclair’s allegations of a drug and sex encounter with Obama in November 1999 (and how could you possibly not believe it now). Whether or not you like or agree with Larry Sinclair. Larry Sinclair was a huge catalyst for questioning Obama at a time when Obama was getting little scrutiny.
Larry Sinclair is running for Congress, unaffiliated, in Florida District 24. Larry Sinclair has done as much as anyone on this planet to expose the truth about Barack Obama. Sinclair has not backed down from incessant attacks and death threats from the Obama camp. Sinclair has had his Social Security Disability benefits threatened twice and was even arrested on trumped up charges by Joe Biden’s son, Beau. The arrest happened at the conclusion of Larry Sinclair’s press conference at the National Press Club in 2008.

For Want of a Nail
For want of a few dollars.
I spoke to Larry Sinclair last night.
He sent me the following:
“If I pay the $6,960.00 by the deadline I WILL be on the ballot and then our message will be covered.  The media is not going to give much coverage to any candidate until the qualifing for the ballot is met.
 
The two companies that process campaign contributions for us charge 6% from each contribution.  I am ready to take on Kosmas and any Republican candidate in this Congressional race, but if we do not get the support we need to meet the requirements to get on the ballot I will not be able to.
 
People say they are tired of the career politicians.  A simple fact of life is the career politicians and political parties have all the money they need to pay fee’s to get their candidates on the ballot.”

2010 Qualifying Dates

I know that you all are weary of being solicited for money. I understand. That is why this needs to remain a grassroots movement. If 4,000 people only give $ 2.00, the goal will be achieved. I am asking for your time. Help spread the word. Let’s get thousands, if not millions of people involved. Tea party folks, I am asking for your help. Larry Sinclair will continue to help keep Obama accountable. He will also help keep government accountable.

Jeff Katz, WBT radio, Charlotte NC, Katz fired December 1, 2008, Fairness Doctrine, Rush Limbaugh, Conservative host, Katz told truth, Truth about Obama, Katz websites, Silent majority

“Journalism died in 2008.” — Sean Hannity

Jeff Katz, the conservative talk show host on WBT radio in Charlotte NC, was fired on Monday, December 1,
2008. Katz hosted a show that ran just after the Rush Limbaugh show. Jeff Katz, who appeared to some
as too abrupt and controversial, did his damn job and spoke the truth. Now some are shooting the messenger.
Too negative? About Charlotte? Oh come on. Let me tell you, when I first began being in Charlotte, I could
not believe how bad some things were. Schools, crime, roads and city government for example. Negative?
Oh my goodness, why would anyone be negative.

You morons!! He has been telling the truth!

And oh my God! Question Obama and be negative?

That is a serious crime!
What bothers me about the Jeff Katz dismissal is that it falls under a broad category of preventing the
American people from hearing the truth. I have watched the election play out this year in amazement
as a “1984” like world has controlled the information presented or withheld about Barack Obama. The MSM
was totally in the tank for Obama. The Obama camp, using paid operatives and Obama fanatics has engaged in Nazi Brownshirt like tactics of scrubbing the internet, revisionist history altering of data, personal attacks
and shutting down websites of those questioning Obama.

The “Fairness Doctrine”, which is anything but fair, is raising it’s ugly head. This has been an ongoing
effort by the far left to silence their critics. Whether one agrees with people like Rush Limbaugh or
Jeff Katz, they serve an important function. Both Rush and Katz tell the truth and tell the American People
what they need to hear. People like Rush and Katz are hardly sufficient to counterbalance all of the
left wing propaganda we are bombarded with, but God help us if we lose them. In fact, many of the people
that have commented on Jeff Katz, indicated they were not Republicans or that they might have been
somewhat liberal, but liked listening to Katz to give them more balanced news.

So, what will come of this?

Rush Limbaugh fulfilled a need when he came along around 20 years ago. There had been a trend toward biased news for years. WBT has made what they refer to as a business decision. I believe they are making a huge mistake. Obama won Mecklenberg County and NC. However, if one examines the area he won, this is an island surrounded by more conservative, McCain voters. As I stated when I called WBT radio on Tuesday, there are squeaky wheels that voice their opinion often. However, there is a silent majority out there that is
fed up with biased reporting. That silent majority will respond with a backlash. Jeff Katz leaving
WBT will create a big vacuum (no offense to Tara Servatius who does a good job). This is a turning point
in information presentation. The Charlotte Observer, an extremely biased, left wing rag, is losing readership
and that is likely to escalate. WBT will lose listeners. The internet will increasingly take on a larger
role. Blog talk radio will increase in popularity. Citizen Wells has filled in for a host and has been urged
to host a show. Don’t be surprised if it happens.

I have contacted Jeff Katz and am waiting on a response.

The following sites are believed to be run by Jeff Katz. I will confirm this.

http://twitter.com/jeffkatzshow

http://thejeffkatzshow.blogspot.com/

Here are some comments from this blog about the Jeff Katz dismissal:

“I think Jeff Katz is the best thing to ever happen to talk radio in the Southeast…

He tells you what the leftist mainstream media will not…”

“People have the right to know about the truth. It is unfortunate most Americans are too dumb to think for themselves and hear the truth. Too bad Katz had to be fired. We just live in a society that is too politically correct. I’m going to talk about Obama and I always seek the facts before I judge. Too bad the idiots of America don’t see it that way.”

“I totally agree with you Citizen Wells…..Jeff Katz was the ONLY news person in the Charlotte area brave enough to tell the truth or even look for the truth concerning Obama. I listened to Jeff every day…loved his show…someone should have some explaining to do about this.

When the newspapers or talk radio can no longer seek the truth in our country, then for all practical purposes, objective reporting is DOA (dead on arrival) and everyone(including the owners of the radio stations and newspapers) are in deep doo-do! Ask Hier Hitler what he did!

This is outrageous. Citizen you are also correct about the Charlotte Observer. What a rag sheet and they have no compitition, but they are loosing their subscribers! I wonder why?

I hope they loose all their readers. I’m sure when the smoke clears they will have had a lot to do with the firing of Jeff .

Jeff certainly did his part in exposing this Obama charade, now it’s our turn to make our voices heard. Please every one in the Charlotte area do this:

1. CALL WBT AND TELL THEM; BRING BACK JEFF KATZ OR LOSE YOUR AUDIENCE!

2. EVERYONE IN THE CHARLOTTE AREA STOP LISTENING TO WBT!!!! IF KATZ’S LOYAL LISTENER’S STOP TURNING THEIR RADIOS TO WBT, THEY WILL GET THE MESSAGE!

BOYCOTT,BOYCOTT, BOYCOTT,BOYCOTT!

3. LOCAL BUSINESSES STOP ADVERTISING ON WBT UNTIL KATZ RETURNS!

IT WORKS FOR JESSIE JACKSON AND WILL WORK FOR US ALSO. MAKE YOUR SILENT VOICES HEARD!”

“The politically correct weenies at WBT have groveled to the radical liberal left. Rush Limbaugh and Jeff Katz were the only hosts who tell it like it is without all the p/c crap. I will still listen to Rush, but not on WBT and to Katz as soon as his new show begins. And, it will begin.”

“Jeff Katz, like Jason Lewis before him, ask questions and addressed issues that I found not only interesting but necessary. The mainstream media, whom I trusted for more years than I care to mention, no longer brings the news, they make the news. Jeff had a curiosity about Obama that I, and many others, have. Who is he really? Why is his birth certificate sealed? Why is his college admission papers sealed? What is there to hide? When it comes to other subjects, like illegal immigration he simply refused to call it “undocumented immigrants”. The operative word is, and always will be, ILLEGAL. What is wrong in asking the hard questions?”

“Jeff Katz was the best thing on WBT. I ‘m so very upset over this. WBT shame on you, you have made a hugh mistake. I will boycott WBT, Charlotte Observer way too liberal for me, they never report the truth. God bless you Jeff and your family, you are truly gifted and deserve your own radio show like Glen, Rush, and Shawn.”

“Jeff Katz was the reason I began listening to WBT in the first place. I am so tired of being forced to swallow the biased liberal crap the mainstream media feeds us! Jeff gave a voice to discouraged conservatives. I”ve listened to Tara before and respect her abilities but can’t stomach this change. You’ve lost me WBT!”

“Like Mac, I started listening to WBT because of Jeff Katz. When I heard the reasoning for his release, I changed my radio preset. It seemed like the GM and PM were reciting an overly rehearsed line during their show. Tara is alright, but she gets repetitive and doesn’t keep my attention.”

“I will miss Jeff Katz, I wish him and his family a Merry Christmas and hope he finds a station that will appreciate him . Thank you for your work, Citizen. Please keep all of us informed as to what is happening.”

“WBT made a HUGE mistake by dumping Jeff Katz. Do they really think Tara can fill his shoes? Well, she can’t.

I’ve listened to Tara. She’s okay but frankly, not very articulate. Doesn’t hold a candle to Jeff.

To make a move a stupid as this I have to wonder if Rick Jackson & Bill White are on drugs. No, you say? Then they should be!

WBT just lost this listener. I simply won’t be back and am glad my satelite radio is already in place.”

Obama, Barney Frank, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Campaign contributions, Democrats, Lobbyists, Truth about Obama, More Obama lies, McCain reformer

“These two entities — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — are not facing any kind of financial crisis, the more people exaggerate these problems, the more pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of affordable housing.

Barney Frank 2003 in response to Bush administration overhaul plan.
“I join as a cosponsor of the Federal Housing Enterprise Regulatory Reform Act of 2005, S. 190, to underscore my support for quick passage of GSE regulatory reform legislation. If Congress does not act, American taxpayers will continue to be exposed to the enormous risk that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac pose to the housing market, the overall financial system, and the economy as a whole.”

John McCain

 Obama and his democrat buddies never let the truth get in the way
of a good story. Never has this been more true than now in the face
of a financial crisis in this country. A financial crisis Obama and
his party created. What do Obama and Barney Frank have in common
besides being Democrats. They both were listed in the top 25
recipients of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
and they both are hypocrites. Obama is number 3 on the the list
and Barney Frank is 16. Obama, the candidate of change, was in
bed with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac yet he criticizes John McCain,
who along with George Bush, tried to fix the problem.
From a Wall Street Journal Online article:
This is stunningly naive. Recent statements by Barney Frank (D., Mass.), the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, and Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.), a powerful member of the Senate Banking Committee, make clear that Congress will never let them be privatized, broken up, slimmed down, nationalized or any of the other options hopeful reformers are putting forth today. Fannie and Freddie in their current form are just what Congress wants: an inexhaustible source of campaign contributions and funds for favored groups.

WBT talk radio, Charlotte NC, Obama, Jeff Katz show, truth about Obama

Jeff Katz and Keith Larson, talk radio hosts on WBT radio in Charlotte, NC, have been discussing Obama and the danger he presents for weeks. I caught part of the Jeff Katz show today, Monday, May 12. 2008. Jeff just mentioned that if Obama wins the presidency, it may be the end of the country. I could not agree more. Jeff is bringing up aspects of Obama that the MSM is not covering. I commend Jeff Katz for the job he is doing. If you have any questions about Obama, read about his personality and past on this blog and do some research. Also listen to WBT talk radio in Charlotte NC which also presents the Rush Limbaugh Show.

November 4 1999, Obama records, Obama not in senate November 4, 1999, Russert, Lynn Sweet, Chicago Tribune, truth about Obama

We need to know the truth about Barack Obama. We need to know where Obama was on November 4, 1999. We need to know where Obama was and what he was doing during his term in the Illinois Senate. When I first read the allegations of Larry Sinclair, I was very skeptical. I am still somewhat skeptical. However, I went to the records of the Illinois Senate for November 4, 1999 and Barack Obama was not present. Sinclair alleges that he had 2 encounters with Obama from November 3 to November 8 1999. The first encounter was allegedly in a rented limo and involved drugs and gay sex. This alone was not a red flag for me but when you couple this information with Obama’s known association with criminals, with racists and hate mongers and his failure to provide his records while in the Illinois Senate, there is a legitimate need to get straight answers from Obama.

Here is what we know about Obama:

Obama received campaign contributions from Tony Rezko and was involved in a real estate transaction involving Rezko and his wife.

Obama had a long time association with racist, anti semitic pastor Jeremiah Wright.

Obama has consistently evaded requests for information, lied about not knowing of pastor Wright’s comments and acted in a hypocritical manner such as when he condemned Don Imus in 2007.

Obama has made hypocritical comments about open access to records:

From the democratic presidential debate in Philadelphia on Oct. 30, Obama said to Clinton: “We have just gone through one of the most secretive administrations in our history, and not releasing, I think, these records at the same time, Hillary, as you’re making the claim that this is the basis for your experience, I think, is a problem.”

November 3 2007. The Obama campaign sent out a letter  pressing Clinton to release her White House schedules before the Iowa caucuses.

“Fully releasing these records is in keeping with the spirit of the process that makes the Iowa caucus so special,”

 Lynn Sweet, a columnist and the Washington Bureau Chief for the Chicago Sun-Times states:

“Instead, since I have some reporting history here, I am noting a pattern that has emerged: This is Obama’s third ethical conversion of convenience — taking on a higher standard, but only when it appears to be politically expedient. Obama is making government transparency and ethics a centerpiece of his presidential campaign.”

From a Chicago Tribune interview of November 12, 2007:

“The status of any government records Sen. Barack Obama might still have from his time as a state lawmaker in Springfield has come up as he has repeatedly criticized Sen. Hillary Clinton for how slowly records from her husband’s administration have been released.

In a Tribune interview Thursday, the Illinois Democrat said he had no intention of sharing any of the documents he might still have in his possession.”

Next are the questions asked and responses from Obama. I know that many people have read this, but it is worth repeating:

“Q: It is kind of unknown where some of the records from your time in Springfield are located. Where is that stuff, what do you have?

“We had one district director. I had one staff person, so, you know, we didn’t have some elaborate sort of system. I didn’t at my disposal millions of dollars and potentially multiple staff people to conduct an archive. Now keep in mind, it is apples and oranges. First of all, I’m not the one who has made this an issue. We saw during the debate, Senator Clinton was asked about it and the suggestion was somehow they’ve done all they could. And my simple point was, I don’t think there is some smoking gun in these archives or something, or some damning evidence. The only point that I’ve made is that, you know, Senator Clinton continues to base her claim on experience, in part, in substantial part, on her role as first lady, because if her, you know, experience was just based on her tenure as an elected official, it’s thinner than mine. So, I think it’s fair for people to ask, you know, what exactly was she doing, if that’s a substantial claim that she is making. So, I’m not interested in playing a game of gotcha, where I think there is evidence of something. I’m assuming most of this stuff is pretty mundane, you know, stuff. But what we do know is that she was involved in health care. Based on the questions you just asked me, or [New York Times reporter Jeff] Zeleny just asked me today, there’s this sense of, well, yeah, I was in charge of health care, but the fact that it didn’t work out, wasn’t my fault. That, we’ve at least got a public record that she was involved. From that point forward, we really have no idea what she was involved in. And so, you know, what I think, what I think, is not, doesn’t make sense is to say, to able to take credit for whatever Clinton Administration successes that she wants, and then selectively distance herself from any Clinton Administration failures, and not have some sort of public record that allows people to get a sense of that. Now, my sense is that this is information that, if they wanted to accelerate the process, so that it was available before this election, they could get it out there.”

Q: What about your stuff, though? What do you have?

“I have no idea. I mean [muffled on recording]. I really don’t. Again, I did not have at my disposal. I wasn’t preparing for the Obama state senatorial library.”

Q: You must have kept some stuff. Correspondence, calendars?

“The problem is whatever remaining documents I have are inevitably incomplete. And then the questions going to be, where’s this or where’s that. Once I start heading down that road, then it puts me in a position that could end up being misleading. I don’t want to mislead people. I don’t know the extent of the records that I have as a state senator.””

The following is from Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times on November 11, 2007:

“On Friday, Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times reported that she had asked Obama at a news conference: “Do your state senate papers still exist? If they do, just where are they? And would you ever intend to make them public to be responsive to some requests?”

Sweet wrote that he replied: “Nobody has requested specific documents.”

But the Chicago Tribune has reported that it “requested documents from his time in Springfield and never received a response.”

And Sweet wrote of her own paper, “The Chicago Sun-Times has also been asking about Obama’s papers.””

“RNC spokesman Danny Diaz said of Obama’s reticence on records: “Barack Obama is a rookie senator with few accomplishments. Perhaps he’s reluctant to inform the public about his activities in Springfield because they demonstrate a lack of leadership at a state level as well.””

“An Obama spokesman, Ben LaBolt, last week declined to say where Obama’s records from his years in the Illinois State Senate are located. There is no law mandating the state to archive the records. The records from Obama’s office — if he kept them — would potentially show appointments with lobbyists, policy memos, meetings, etc.”

“Obama’s campaign has refused to identify the biggest bundlers, people who are raising at least $200,000 for him and are given membership in his National Finance Council. Obama, as all major candidates, declines most of the time to disclose details about most fund-raising events.”

“Sometimes Obama has come late to the game. He did not stop taking rides on subsidized corporate jets until the week he was tapped to be the Democrats’ chief spokesman on ethics in January 2006. In 2005, Obama took 23 such private aircraft flights, some to attend fund-raisers he headlined. In 2006, Obama led the fight to ban lawmakers from taking cut-rate private air travel.”

“Obama has supported more earmark disclosure to bolster government transparency. Last June, Obama disclosed the earmarks he requested for Illinois and national interests. However, his office, after repeated requests since June, has yet to disclose earmarks Obama sought in 2006, before he was running for president.”

Tim Russert interviewed Barack Obama on November 11, 2007. During part of the interview Russert asked Obama about supplying records. Here is that segment:

“MR. RUSSERT:  You talked about Senator Clinton having records released from the Clinton Library regarding her experience as first lady, and yet when you were asked about, “What about eight years in the state senate of Illinois,” you said, “I don’t know.” Where, where are the—where are your records?

SEN. OBAMA:  Tim, we did not keep those records.  I…

MR. RUSSERT:  Are they gone?

SEN. OBAMA:  Well, let’s be clear.  In the state senate, every single piece of information, every document related to state government was kept by the state of Illinois and has been disclosed and is available and has been gone through with a fine-toothed comb by news outlets in Illinois.  The, the stuff that I did not keep has to do with, for example, my schedule.  I didn’t have a schedule.  I was a state senator.  I wasn’t intending to have the Barack Obama State Senate Library.  I didn’t have 50 or 500 people to, to help me archive these issues.  So…

MR. RUSSERT:  But your meetings with lobbyists and so forth, there’s no record of that?

SEN. OBAMA:  I did not have a scheduler, but, as I said, every document related to my interactions with government is available right now.  And, as I said, news outlets have already looked at them.

MR. RUSSERT:  Is your schedule available anywhere?  Are—the records exist?

SEN. OBAMA:  I—Tim, I kept my own schedule.  I didn’t have a scheduler.

MR. RUSSERT:  Senator Durbin, your colleague, publishes his schedule each day.  Would you do that?

SEN. OBAMA:  Well, you know, these days I have a public presidential schedule that I think everybody has access to.”
