Problem: Modern politics is all about electability with no mention of character or competence!

"The Times on Tuesday [10/28/08] issued a statement about its decision not to post the tape."

" 'The Los Angeles Times did not publish the videotape because it was provided to us by a confidential source who did so on the condition that we not release it,' said the newspaper's editor, Russ Stanton. 'The Times keeps its promises to sources.'"

"Jamie Gold, the newspaper's readers' representative, said in a statement: '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.'"

This goes beyond the selective "journalistic" ethics displayed by the Los Angeles Times when they made audio tapes of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's leaked meeting tapes public. This new tape was leaked to the media for a particular purpose and the public, in turn, should hold the Los Angeles Times responsible for supressing the nuances which may either clear or damn Barack Obama.

Original blog entry ...

Is the Los Angeles Times suppressing critical information regarding Barack Obama that may demonstrate, once and for all, that Barack Obama is not who he portrays himself to be and would be an embarrassing and dangerous detriment to the United States of America should he be elected President?

Apparently, according to published reports, the Los Angeles Times is sitting on a critical piece of videotape that purportedly shows Barack Obama celebrating and toasting terrorists including PLO Operative Rashid Khalidi and unrepentant domestic terrorists William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who were complicit in planning and executing bombing attacks on American institutions.

From Gateway Pundit …

“LA Times writer Peter Wallsten wrote about Barack Obama's close association with former Palestinian operative Rashid Khalidi back in April. Wallsten discussed a dinner held back in 2003 in honor of Khalidi, a critic of Israel and advocate for Palestinian rights.”

“Barack Obama has denied his close association with Khalidi, too. According to Wallsten the evening not surprisingly turned into a classic Jew-bash:  ‘During the dinner a young Palestinian American recited a poem accusing the Israeli government of terrorism in its treatment of Palestinians and sharply criticizing U.S. support of Israel. If Palestinians cannot secure their own land, she said, ‘then you will never see a day of peace.’
One speaker likened ‘Zionist settlers on the West Bank’ to Osama bin Laden, saying both had been ‘blinded by ideology.’"

“Barack Obama also praised the former PLO operative during the event. And, Obama confessed that his family often shared dinner with the Khalidis: His many talks with the Khalidis, Obama said, had been ‘consistent reminders to me of my own blind spots and my own biases... It's for that reason that I'm hoping that, for many years to come, we continue that conversation -- a conversation that is necessary not just around Mona and Rashid's dinner table,’ but around ‘this entire world.’"

“...The event was videotaped, and a copy of the tape was obtained by The Times.”

“Khalidi and the Obamas were great friends in Chicago and often shared meals together. By the way, Khalidi was also best friends with Bill Ayers.”


I believe that we should know who we are electing to the Office of the Presidency. In spite of the democrats wanting to do anything or say anything to secure their grasp on power, it is now time to stand up and demand that the Los Angeles Times release the video to the rest of the media OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES OF THEIR ACTIONS.

Hurting the Los Angeles Times by reducing their subscription and advertising revenue …

This is  billionaire Sam Zell, born of Jewish immigrant parents from Poland who fled the country just before the Nazi invasion in 1939, who completed a leveraged buyout of the Tribune Company, publisher of the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times. Is it apparent that he is both customer focused and interest in generating revenue.

Perhaps Sam Zell is willing to stand up for his country and demand that his arrogant left-leaning editorial staff  release this critical tape prior to the election?

If this video remains buried and Barack Obama is elected, perhaps we should demonstrate the power of the American people by boycotting the Los Angeles Times into bankruptcy?

What can YOU do?

Decide for yourself whether or not the Los Angeles Times needs to be accountable to their audience, advertisers and the citizens of the United States for their actions in possibly suppressing a critical piece of background information that may shed doubts on his suitability to become the President of the United States.

"The New York Times' circulation fell 3.6 percent to 1,000,665, while circulation at the Los Angeles Times fell 5.2 percent to 739,147." <Source >

[Los Angeles Times] Newspaper spokeswoman Nancy Sullivan said Monday that 75 staffers are being laid off in the latest round of cuts. She declined further comment and would not disclose how many journalists will remain at the paper. The Times, which is owned by Chicago-based Tribune Co., reduced its overall staff by 250 people last summer, including 150 from the newsroom." <Source

Decide for yourself if the suppression of this key evidence is worth boycotting the Los Angeles Times and their advertisers in order to punish them for being complicit in an effort to control the outcome of this election.

If Barack Obama is elected, demand that your elected officials cease any and all business with the Los Angeles Times and its subsidiaries.

If Barack Obama is elected, boycott the banks who lend the Los Angeles Times money.

This is a serious matter involving national security and the sanctity of American politics. We need to take control back from those who would manipulate the American public for their own political and private ends. Especially if such ends involved allegiance or capitulation to a foreign sovereign nation or an alien ideology.
