Calabrese: Media Ignores Obama's Undermining His Own Country, Because They Want The Same Things

It is now becoming abundantly clear that Barack Obama, in a meeting with Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari, tried to undermine his own country's negotiations with Iraq during his July visit to Baghdad. Even the Obama campaign can't deny it because there were multiple witnesses to the exchange.

So once again, conservatives begin raising the question: Why is the mainstream media ignoring this story? They're treating it like they treated the John Edwards affair story, which they ignored until they no longer could. But this is much more serious. The Democratic nominee for president of the United States attempted to scuttle a crucial status-of-forces agreement between the U.S. and the government of Iraq. He blatantly urged the Iraqis to stop negotiating with the Bush Administration and wait until the next president presumably him, at least as far as he's concerned takes office.


Why is the mainstream media ignoring the story? Well, first and foremost, because they want Obama to win the election. But it goes deeper than that. They're ignoring the story because they don't see anything wrong with what Obama did.

I'd love to give you more but that would violate fair use guidelines, so go here to read the rest.

Barack Obama illegally interjected himself into U.S. foreign policy and blatantly attempted to undermine a sitting President, secure in the knowledge that the Justice Department will not charge him with a law that hasn't been enforced in over 200 years, and knowing that the media doesn't care.

Want media attention?

Have some half-wit bail bondsman, head-wound patient, or strung-out meth junkies thrown in jail for threatening to kill Obama, even though not a single one of them could be considered a serious threat.

You'll get coverage in every major national and international news outlet for days as they fall all over each other to report that these isolated incidents are an example of how average, inbred racist rubes (Americans) cannot stand the thought of a Halfrican-American President.

But when Obama meddles in affairs that touches the lives of 140,000 soldiers—white, black, brown, yellow, and red—in a combat zone, purely for his personal political advantage?

Dead silence.

Not. A. Word.

It's a matter of priorities, folks. They want to protect Barack Obama, no matter how many Americans he endangers.

But who is going to protect us from him?

Barak works on the war negotiation side, while other Democrats get the US oil-deals squashed and Iraq signs with China instead... It's a pincer move by Boss Pelosi and the Party of Defeatiture, doing what Stalin taught them how.

We can no longer trust the media to treat all informaton with the same priorty. They are misinforming the American public intentionally by not reporting on the this important issue. All of a sudden they are fact checking every comment ever made by Palin, but do not fact check anything of significance by Obama. Where were they during the whole campaign with fact checking? Only now they start - it is so obvious the media is now the tool of the left. Time to boycott seriously.

The answer is that they (the media and the democrats) have done it before and it worked.

In August 1971, I was an air force captain flying F4s from Danang AB, Republic of Vietnam. LT (JG) John Kerry, still in the USN Reserves, went to Paris to negotiate with the North Vietnamese delegation. He encouraged the communists to continue the fight as he and the anti-war activists undermined our efforts at home.

Oops, I'm too late with the Kerry material. The Democrats are the party of treason, folks. That is the simple fact. They hate America and seek to destroy her or at the least open her up to destruction at the hands of others. This is why they oppose missile defense, domestic energy, 2nd Ammendment... this is the Unified Field Theory that explains so much that is inexplicable. The Party of Treason. That is what it is. That is all it is.
