Silencing Dissent per the White House

Straight from the Whitehouse.gov web site:

First, we will expand the restriction on oral communications to cover all persons, not just federally registered lobbyists.

If you were working for the President of the United States of America, and chose to write that sentence, would that feel correct to you?  And this, from:

Norm Eisen, special counsel to the president for ethics and government reform, in the spirit of transparency as always  [bold in source]

Presidential Money Laundering

I don’t care for this “perq” of the US Presidency no matter which side does it:

But when the president hit the road Tuesday for a two-day fundraising tour to pack the party coffers, he also was racking up a $265,000 partisan bill for just one leg of the trip, according to a watchdog group — part of which taxpayers, regardless of party affiliation, will have to pay.

Why doesn’t Andree McLeod file complaints against Obama?

White House Spokesman Warns: “Be exceedingly careful…”

. . . how you describe Judge Sonia Sotomayor.

In 2001, then-White House press secretary Ari Fleischer drew criticism in the press for suggesting Americans “need to watch what they say” in the overheated aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.

Now Robert Gibbs plays Thought Police!

Which Chrysler Dealerships are Closed by the Obama Administration?

Clue: The dealerships owned by big Obama donators remain open:

RLJ-McLarty-Landers is owned by three men.
One was the former Chief of Staff for President Clinton.
One is the founder of Black Entertainment Television and a huge Obama supporter.
All 6 of their Chrysler dealerships will remain open.
And, get this… Their local competitors have been eliminated!

Al Qaeda Kidnaps TOTUS!

The headline tells it all:

In an audacious raid Friday, al-Qaeda terrorists managed to slip past White House security and seize President Obama’s teleprompter. Their demands were released in a grainy video, which apparently showed the president’s teleprompter, bound and blindfolded but  unharmed, while heavily armed masked men stood behind it, quoting from the Qur’an. The content of their demands is not being released.

Ghost Writer for Obama's "Dreams"?

World Net Daily had noted some odd facts about Obama’s Dreams of My Father back in October 2008:

But since July, Cashill has unveiled in a dozen columns, summarized here, his compelling evidence that the co-founder of the radical Weather Underground group – dismissed by Obama as “just a guy who lives in my neighborhood” – shaped and refined the book with his exceptional writing skill and radical ideas.

Now, Jack follows up at American Thinker:

I dedicate what follows to Matthews and those willfully blind souls like him.  It is a work in progress, a collective one at that, aided and abetted by nearly a score of volunteer co-conspirators from Hawaii to Ohio to Israel to Australia.  The thesis is simple enough: Barack Obama needed substantial help to write his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father.  Moreover, unlike Sarah Palin, Obama chose to conceal the identity of his collaborator and not without good reason. To admit that he needed a collaborator would have undercut his campaign for president and to reveal the name of that collaborator would have ended it.
