Laura's E-Blast - October 28, 2008
Posted by Staff
Nearly every American reveres the U.S. Constitution, but not Barack Obama. In a just-released 2001 radio interview with Obama, he said, "I think it is an imperfect document, and I think it is a document that reflects some deep flaws in American culture." He also bemoaned the fact that the Supreme Court isn't better suited to redistribute wealth.

After the Framers finished drafting the Constitution, a Philadelphia woman asked Benjamin Franklin whether America was to be a monarchy or a republic. His quick response: "A republic, if you can keep it." So, will we be able to keep it through an Obama presidency? Let's hope we don't have to find out.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that Ohio's child-support computer database was accessed by someone trying to uncover dirt on Joe "the Plumber" Wurzelbacher. The director of Ohio's Department of Job and Family Services, Helen Jones Kelley -- a maxed-out Obama contributor -- granted access to the database. According to the Dispatch, this was the fourth time state computers were used to find information on Joe. Has the ACLU or any other privacy advocates lodged any protest about this? You know the answer. Will an Obama Administration carry on this pattern of using official power to intimidate critics? I'd put money on it.

What if a few years ago John McCain had partied the night away with a house-full of assorted terror sympathizers and Fox News had a video of the festivities that it refused to air? The national media would not stop until they shamed Fox into releasing the tape. According to National Review's Andy McCarthy, the Los Angeles Times was given a copy of a tape of Sen. Obama at a farewell party in 2003, held in honor of Rashid Khalidi, the erstwhile terrorist mouthpiece for Yasser Arafat. The newspaper has declined to release the tape. Yesterday we asked listeners to write the Times and demand that the tape be made public. Here's one response:

Subject: RE: Not read: The L.A. Times Suppressing Obama's Khalidi Bash Tape?

Thanks for your note. More than six months ago the Los Angeles Times published a detailed account of the events shown on the videotape. The Times is not suppressing anything. Just the opposite -- the L.A. Times brought the matter to light. Please read the article at: http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/washingtondc/la-na-obamamideast10apr10,0,3025411.story
Thanks again for taking the time to write.

Nice try, Jamie. How can the Times possibly argue that the content of this video is not newsworthy?! It's one thing to read what Obama said at the party--it's another to hear him talk about "his friend" in his own words. Big shock that with this lack of news sense and obvious pro-Dem bias, the Times is bleeding money, losing circulation, and laying off staffers.
