Barack Caught In Secret Offering $150K In ‘Hush Money’ But All Attention Is On Trump

Published

on

Well, look at what we have here…

As Robert Mueller and his “special counsel” of Democrat Party operatives investigation appear to be focusing on President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen’s payments to two women during the 2016 campaign, it seems former President Barack Hussein Obama was no stranger to paying people “hush money.”

Chicago pastor Jeremiah Wright, the same pastor of the church where Obama sat for 20 years and who even married Barack and Michelle Obama in addition to being coined by the former president as a “mentor” revealed in a 2012 interview with the New York Post that one of Obama’s “closest friends” actually offered him $150,000 if he would not preach until after the 2008 November election after Fox News host Sean Hannity discovered excerpts of Wright’s rabid anti-America, anti-Semitic and racist sermons had become an issue during the campaign. An issue which threatened the Obama campaign’s effort to bury or spin the candidate’s far-left upbringing and political activism.

Yes, folks, Barack Hussein Obama and Michele Obama sat through sermons like the one above for over 20 years. And he was still elected President of the greatest nation in the world, twice!

Here is more via PJ Media:

Yesterday’s news that President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court and accused Trump of committing a federal crime by directing him to pay hush money to two women “for the principal purpose of influencing the election” was definitely shocking. According to Cohen and his attorney, Trump violated campaign finance laws by allegedly directing Cohen to make these hush money payments. This point had me confused.

For the moment, let’s put aside the obvious problems with Cohen’s credibility and assume he’s telling the truth. According to a Reuters article about the Cohen pleas:

Under U.S. election law, campaign contributions, defined as things of value given to a campaign to influence an election, must be disclosed. A payment intended to silence allegations of an affair just before an election could constitute a campaign contribution, which is limited to $2,700 per person per election, some experts said.

So, let’s review… A payment to silence someone from making potentially damaging statements “could constitute” a campaign contribution according to “some” experts? There’s clearly a significant amount of subjectivity here. But, here’s the thing: if everything went down as Cohen says it did, then why wasn’t Obama held to the same standard?

That’s right, Barack Obama also offered an individual hush money “for the principal purpose of influencing the election,” but you probably never heard about it. It wasn’t to silence a mistress though, it was to silence his former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. Wright’s inflammatory, anti-American rhetoric caused Obama significant headaches during his first presidential campaign, and he tried to contain the damage to protect his chances of winning the White House.

Edward Klein broke the story in the New York Post on May 13, 2012—the same year Obama was reelected—that Obama’s team tried to buy Wright’s silence during the 2008 campaign. According to Wright, he was offered $150,000 through an Obama intermediary (one of Obama’s closest friends), and Obama himself tried to persuade him to keep quiet.

“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”

“Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place. And I said, ‘You’re used to coming to my home, you’ve been here countless times, so what’s wrong with coming to my home?’ So we met in the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church of Christ, at South Pleasant Avenue right off 95th Street, just Barack and me. I don’t know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.

“And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election.’ He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, ‘I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’

So, here we have Barack Obama wanting to meet in a “secret” and “secure” location, and then urging Wright to keep quiet for the sake of his presidential campaign, and an offer of $150,000 in hush money from a close Obama friend, and likely a campaign donor as well. Wright didn’t accept the hush money, but by his account, Obama is guilty of everything Trump is being accused of.

And yet no one cared. Outside of conservative media and blogs, the story was dismissed or downplayed by those who deigned to cover it. This was during an election year, no less. The allegations against Trump by his former lawyer are as serious as the allegations made against Obama by his former pastor. If Obama’s actions weren’t worthy of a federal investigation, then neither are Trump’s. Either both men violated the law, or both men didn’t. Which is it? If the former, Obama should be investigated—better late than never, after all.

It never ceases to amaze me how serious accusations against Barack Obama often failed to spark much controversy because the media either refused to cover it or pushed the Obama White House talking points on the matter. Sadly, Obama offering hush money to Wright is probably the least serious thing he did to “influence an election.” There are many examples of obstruction of justice, manipulating intelligence, and outright lying to the American public with the sole purpose of protecting Obama’s chances of reelection 2012, or to influence the 2014 midterms. When the Obama campaign was fined $375,000 by the FEC for concealing donations, no one called for impeachment.

There shouldn’t be one set of rules for Republicans and another set of rules for Democrats. Cohen may just be trying to score a big payday by going after Trump, but I’m tired of the double standards and hypocrisy of Trump’s enemies.”

Yes, just like the article above points out. Obama tried to buy the silence of his pastor of 20 years and no one cared. The mainstream media didn’t say a word, the Republicans didn’t say a word, there were no investigations and no one cared. But President Trump’s personal lawyer allegedly pays off two women who had affairs with the president over a decade ago and all hell breaks loose.

This double standard needs to stop. These women only prove that President Trump isn’t a very good husband, Pastor Wright proved Obama had a severe disdain for this country, one that was clearly seen by anyone who didn’t drink the Koolaid in 2008.

Avenatti Shares Statements From His Ex-Wives To Prove He’s A Good Guy – Backfires BIG Time!

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Chicks On The Right:

Michael Avenatti was arrested on charges of domestic violence last night. He’s out on bail and held a brief press conference, in which he promised that he would be “fully exonerated.”

According to TMZ:

We’re told Wednesday afternoon the woman was on the sidewalk on her cellphone with sunglasses covering her eyes, sobbing and screaming on the phone, “I can’t believe you did this to me. I’m going to get a restraining order against you.”

We’re told security brought her inside the building, took her upstairs and Michael showed up 5 minutes later and ran into the building. He screamed repeatedly, “She hit me first.” We’re told he angrily added, “This is bulls***, this is f***ing bulls***.” We’re told he tried getting into the elevator but security denied him access.

Cops showed up and escorted Avenatti into a corner of the apartment lobby and spoke with him for 5 to 10 minutes and then took him into custody.

But LISTEN. He is innocent! NOTHING HAPPENED PLZ DISPERSE!

He’s a decent man. Please ignore the fact that his mere existence proves otherwise.

In order to prove that he’s a decent man, he shared statements from his ex-wives.

That’s fine and dandy and all, but neither of his ex-wives are the alleged victims here, so their statements are virtually irrelevant to me.

Sorry, but I think we should treat Avenatti the same way he treated Kavanaugh. Guilty until proven innocent!

Also, you don’t just randomly get arrested on a domestic violence charge. He posted $50,000 bail. SOMETHING happened.

California Just Hit With A NEW Wave Of Deadly Attack – Not Fires

A norovirus outbreak is sweeping through a shelter for wildfire victims in Northern California, potentially causing diarrhea, fever and body aches in anyone who is infected, The Associated Press reports.

The norovirus is highly contagious and has prompted shelter workers to quarantine infected residents separate from others in the shelter. Staff cleaned the shelter with bleach Wednesday, according to the AP.

The victims of the virus are likely people displaced by the Camp Fire, the most deadly fire in state history after killing at least 56 people. The Camp Fire has wiped out more than 9,000 houses and commercial buildings. It had burned 140,000 acres and was 40 percent contained by Thursday morning, according to the state fire agency Cal Fire.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Administrator Brock Long met with Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and emergency officials in California Wednesday. The Trump administration officials surveyed the wreckage of the Camp Fire, especially around Paradise, a town of about 27,000 that was 95 percent destroyed by the Camp Fire.

“Every time I come to California I say this is the worst fire I’ve seen. Once again this is the absolute worst,” Zinke said in Wednesday tweet. “Worse than any war zone I saw in Iraq. The heroism of firefighters is amazing.”

“We’ll be here for several years working this disaster,” Long said at a press conference after surveying Paradise, according to NBC News.

“The infrastructure is basically a total rebuild at this point,” Long said. “You’re not going to be able to rebuild Paradise the way it was.”

The Woolsey Fire, a major fire burning in Southern California, has consumed another 98,000 acres and was 57 percent contained by Thursday morning. It has killed at least two people and razed 600 structures, according to Cal Fire.
