“DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO”
by Sharon Rondeau
(Mar. 9, 2015) — In an early afternoon tweet on Monday, CBS White House reporter Mark Knoller wrote, “POTUS Exec Order authorizes US Treasury to block US assets of Venezuelan officials who violate human rights & engage in public corruption.”
Knowing not to expect a response, The Post & Email replied, “Does that include forgery of government documents?”
Our tweet referenced the findings of the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse, which more than three years ago declared Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form “computer-generated forgeries.”
The mainstream media, including CBS, has refused to report on the posse’s discoveries other than on the internet or conduct its own investigations.
The Washington Times expanded on Knoller’s tweet in an article stating that, “…Obama ordered a new round of sanctions Monday against Venezuelan officials accused of violating human rights and detaining political prisoners.”
In issuing economic sanctions against seven Venezuelan law enforcement officials, Obama cited “arrest or prosecution of individuals for their legitimate exercise of free speech.”
Obama’s executive order can be read here and states, in part:
We are committed to advancing respect for human rights, safeguarding democratic institutions, and protecting the U.S. financial system from the illicit financial flows from public corruption in Venezuela.
This new authority is aimed at persons involved in or responsible for the erosion of human rights guarantees, persecution of political opponents, curtailment of press freedoms, use of violence and human rights violations and abuses in response to antigovernment protests, and arbitrary arrest and detention of antigovernment protestors, as well as the significant public corruption by senior government officials in Venezuela.
In 2012, the Obama regime arrested a military veteran, Brandon Raub, without a warrant, locked him in a psychiatric ward for a week, and forced him to take medication for posting song lyrics on his Facebook page.
Under Obama, the IRS has reportedly been used as a tool to target and harass “conservative” groups and individuals, along with the ATF, DOJ and FBI. Innocent people have been incarcerated stemming from misinformation supplied by FBI special agents.
In 2009, former Obama campaign communications director Anita Dunn told an audience, “We controlled the media” and therefore, the messages which reached the public. Posse lead investigator Mike Zullo reported that he is in possession of affidavits attesting to threats made by regime operatives to reporters who indicated an interest in delving into Obama’s obscured background, unknown birthplace and document forgeries.
On a Friday evening radio show, The Washington Times’s Bethany Blankley stated that under Obama, journalists have been continuously under threat not to report on certain issues.
Two years ago, veteran reporter Bob Woodward of Watergate fame reported that he felt threatened when White House economic adviser Gene Sperling told him in an email that he would come to “regret” his characterization of the effects of the upcoming sequester.
Just after Knoller’s tweets on Monday, former CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson tweeted a link to an article she wrote based on a New York Magazine piece revealing that “at precisely the same time my producer and I suddenly began hitting a brick wall when offering investigative stories on Obamacare to the CBS News broadcasts, in October of 2013, this account in New York Magazine says the same thing was happening to investigative reporter Lisa Myers at NBC. As in my own case, the article states NBC’s investigative reporters resorted to taking their important, original stories to alternate forums such as cable or the Internet.”
[Editor’s Note: Some may find the New York Magazine article offensive in some places; however, it reports that former NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams turned away investigative reports so as not to air anything “divisive.”]
Williams was outed early last month as having embellished a story about a helicopter flight on which he was a passenger in Iraq in 2003 which ultimately caused his removal from his post without pay for six months.
On August 29, 2010, Williams said to Obama in an interview on the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, “You’re an American born Christian.”
Attkisson wrote a book entitled “Stonewalled” in which she described how CBS silenced her investigative reporting on the Fast & Furious gunrunning scandal; the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya which killed four Americans and injured many more; and the controversial health care law known as “Obamacare” which is again under review by the U.S. Supreme Court. Emails obtained and released by Judicial Watch show collusion between DOJ operatives to silence Attkisson in 2011.
Beginning in June 2013, Attkisson reported remote and in-home tampering with her computers, security system, cable television, home and cellular phones which was later determined by forensic examination to have been carried out by a government agency or agencies. She has sued the Department of Justice for $35 million for invasion of privacy.
While Obama has declared certain actions of Venezuelan officials a threat to U.S. national security, his fraudulent documentation has been termed the same by the sheriff who commissioned the Cold Case Posse to perform its investigation three and a half years ago.
In April 2009, Obama appeared friendly with then-Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, who had rescinded many democratic rights from the people of his country, including that of private property ownership. Obama himself has been called a dictator based on executive actions he has issued without the input of Congress, which is constitutionally tasked with making or amending federal law.
According to Human Rights Watch, Chavez carried out “a dramatic concentration of power and open disregard for basic human rights guarantees,” including censorship of the press.
New York Magazine reported that former NBC reporters Michael Isikoff and Lisa Myers were silenced by Williams.
Isikoff is one of two reporters who interviewed 2Lt. Scott Bennett, who was sentenced to two and a half years imprison by Obama’s Department of Justice for trumped-up crimes, about his knowledge of terrorist funding through laundered money on the part of Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS) and other institutions. Of Isikoff and the second journalist, from The Washington Post, Bennett told The Post & Email, “they didn’t print one word of” the information and documents he provided to them.
Some believe that Obama’s consolidation of power, particularly over the last year, has brought a “1936 Germany” situation to the United States. Under Adolf Hitler, the press, police, and industry were run by the government, with political opponents rounded up and imprisoned or shot dead. At the end of World War II, more than 6 million Jews and a total of more than 50 million were killed.
With and without Congress, Obama has altered immigration policies; declared the internet a “public utility” over which government will preside; changed military policies significantly; tightened control over private banks; mandated health care for every American but included illegal aliens as beneficiaries for federal benefits paid for by taxpayers; attempted to rescind religious exemptions traditional to the American way of life; befriended the leaders of communist Cuba and Iran, as did Chavez; and controlled the media, in particular, in regard to his undisclosed life story and associations.
Sharon Rondeau has operated The Post & Email since April 2010, focusing on the Obama birth certificate investigation and other government corruption news. She has reported prolifically on constitutional violations within Tennessee’s prison and judicial systems.
