LA Times Won’t Release Obama-Khalidi Tape But Posts 24,000 Sarah Palin Emails

In 2008 The LA Times withheld a video that contained footage of Barack Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians who were openly hostile towards Israel. Barack Obama reportedly even gave a toast to a former PLO operative, Rashid Khalidi, at this celebration. This was something the LA Times hid from the American public before the election. The media refused to release the video.

Terrorist Bill Ayers, Barack Obama and his good friend Jew-hater Rashid Khalidi

There were also reports that terrorists Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn were at the same Jew-bash.

Khalidi was thought to be connected to the PLO.

Fast forward to this week—

The Los Angeles Times released 24,000 Sarah Palin emails today.

More… Legal Insurrection added this: CBS News is leading the charge, but it will not release the full content of Obama’s donor conversation caught on an open microphone.

    I used to get the LA Times and cancelled after so many left leaning articles. They are so biased I could not count on them to accurately report the weather. They are a mouthpiece for the liberal left and they make no apologies for it. I would like to see a real newspaper report actual news, instead of what they are told to print by people like George Soros.

  • Molon Lobe

    The3se types of actions demonstrate that Palin is like Holy Water to the vampire Left.

    Run Palin!

  • jainphx

    24,000 emails and begs the people to HELP dig through them for any dirt. Obama has a social security card from Connecticut and they couldn’t care less to find out why. We need these MSM people for what?

  • Jim,

    I have been trying to remain calm, and come to grips with what is happening in our nation.

    Is anyone else up in arms and thinking that something very serious is brewing?

    I hate to even mildly mention that things are pressing hard towards a major situation. Is this possible? What has happened to our nation? It seems so crazy.

    ALASKAN GOOSE AND HAWAIIAN GANDER! Link contains screen captures of comments from WaPo and the NYT articles requesting volunteers and an update on an FOIA request pertaining to Obama’s Illinois Senate record.

  • Maybe some enterprising bloggers will use the FOIA to post all the White House emails. How about the House Minority Leader’s emails? How about the Senate Majority Leader’s emails? Turn about is fair play, right? If they can do it to a private citizen, we should be able to do it to GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES whose paychecks come from US.

    If the pimp media had spent a quarter of their time vetting Obama as they have on Palin he would not be prez today.

  • LA-LA Times

    The LA Times is a perfect example of how a newspaper can foist its political agenda upon the reading public. Anyone reading the LA Times should realize this.

    They don’t deserve to survive.

  • Media bias? What media bias?

    It’s not that I’m a big Palin fan, I’m not, but if the media is going to pick on Palin, they need to spread it out to ALL candidates, and to Obama as well…

  • MaryW

    Well at least it will keep these crazy liberals so busy they won’t have the time to protest at Special Olympic Ceremonies. After they have wasted their time looking for something that isn’t there, all Sarah has to do is hold up a Cross and they’ll flee back to mama’s basement.

    Seriously, what do these loons hope to accomplish? If you’re a fan of Sarah Palin’s nothing is going to change that, unless she pulls a ‘Weiner’; which is highly unlikely. And let’s not forget that her life is like an open book thanks to the likes of the Washington Compost and New York Slimes, and certain blogs e.g. Andrew Sullivan and Charles Johnson. PDS has replaced BDS these days.

    It really is funny to see the effect she has on them – she drives them absolutely crazy!

  • Jim

    I dropped my subscription of the LA times decades ago. There was an overall decline in quality in every section from the front section, to local, to even Sports-post Jim Murray its been down hill.

    It also must be noted that the LA Times was bought out by the Chicago Herald Tribune Corp. so now the LA Times gets lots of rejects from Chicago-Barry O’s hometown. I’m not suggesting a conspiracy, just the migration of a lot like-minded Chicago Liberals now working at the LA Times.

  • “succotash commented: If the pimp media had spent a quarter of their time vetting Obama as they have on Palin he would not be prez today.”

    Assuming they were flooded with information by all sorts of people trying to claim their 15 minutes of fame – and I think that’s a safe assumption – then we can assume that the Press didn’t fail to uncover this information but rather, while in possession of it, they suppressed it…

  • JG833

    This is a link to a CNN clip in which the anchor is quizzing a field reporter about what he’s discovered so far in the emails.

    When the field reporter’s initial response is that, so far, Palin seems to be a hard-working public official, the anchor’s requests become more specific, so that it’s obvious to a careful viewer that he is digging for dirt. One of his questions was clearly looking for evidence of Palin’s alleged over-sensitivity to criticism; and the field reporter’s response was deliciously ironic. He pulled out an email referring to an instance of media criticism of the operations of her office, in which Palin had written that she hoped they were attacking *her* instead of her staff.

    Over-sensitive. Yeah.

    As Bugs Bunny used to say, “What a maroon.

  • No Man

    Maybe among the 24,000 emails they’ll find private sector 8,000,000 jobs to replace the ones Obama destroyed.

    Maybe they’ll find Obama’s real birth certificate; his medical records, drug treatments files; SAT scores; and college transcripts.

  • BaconBits

    *yawn*

    Unless someone is willing to do something about this, then there’s really no reason to ‘act’ outraged. Everyone can just go back to sleep – tomorrow is another day for fantasies. Everyone, even the Democrats and the liberal left, acknowledges that the media is biased and doesn’t report the ‘facts’ in an equitable and fair manner. People just shrug and say, “Oh well…”.

  • rbosque

    Maybe they can investigate why Obama changed his name from Barry Sotero? Or why he registered as a foreign student when he went to Occidental in L.A.?

    Speaking of Palin…

    Is Fox News Out to Sabotage Governor Palin?
    MEDIA WITH AN AGENDA
    by Laura Alcorn, blogging at Richmond Patriots

    (Jun. 9, 2011) — Recently we had a series of discussions with someone familiar with the inside dealings of Fox News regarding the way Fox News treats Governor Palin. While I don’t condone using anonymous sources (I usually make fun of those citing anonymous sources) unfortunately we can’t reveal the source. So we have therefore gathered the evidence that will back up everything we were told and it’s up to the reader to come to his or her own conclusion. Whichever way you look at it, the evidence is astonishing on how Fox News is out to sabotage Governor Palin.

    (snip)

    In an interview with Russell Simmons that was posted on the website, globalgrind.com, Ailes said in relation to the Arizona shooting that “I told all of our guys, shut up, tone it down, make your argument intellectually. You don’t have to do it with bombast. I hope the other side does that.” To protect the Fox brand, Ailes also wanted the network to distance itself from Palin who was the number one target of the left. Ailes feared that by Governor Palin’s association to the network, which was also somewhat targeted, Fox would be pulled into it even deeper.

    It was at that point when Fox decided to throw Governor Palin under the bus. Ailes’ advice to Governor Palin had nothing to do with protecting her; it was all about protecting the Fox brand. Governor Palin realized that she was on her own and even those who she thought she could count on to defend her were about to stab her in the back. It was from that point onwards that Fox’s attitude towards Palin changed and in the following days every pundit on the network went from “Palin needs to respond” just a day before her video was released, to “Palin should have shut up” the next day. The day before the video was released Bill O’Reilly complained that he invited Palin on his show to respond, which he thought was important for her to do, but the next day argued she should have ignored it.

    That was the turning point for Ailes where he decided that Governor Palin is not his candidate and that he’ll do whatever he can to make sure she isn’t. Ailes needed someone he could control and Governor Palin clearly wasn’t that person. Sometime in recent months the word went out internally that reporters, anchors and contributors should push the narrative that Palin isn’t running as hard as they can. No matter what Palin says or does or what the polls say, the rule is simple : “Palin isn’t running and everything she does is either for fun or for money.”

    Heck, how about IF he LEGALLY changed his name from Barry Soetoro? We don’t even know that much.

  • driguana

    yes….everyone should now be clamoring for a full disclosure on the background and qualifications of Obama…everyone!

  • Pat the First

    If Palin didn’t do anything wrong, then this will just blow up in the MSM’s face. If she did something wrong and these emails prove it, then she will have to face the consequences. Let it be known that you should be careful using government mail systems if you don’t want scrutiny.

    My guess is the egg is going to end up on the MSM’s collective faces.

    Why would Fox go after Palin? That seems to me to be going into tin-foil hat land.

    american tass represents the greatest threat to the freedom of the american people in the history of this country. the people that are unaware of the prejudice of the media need to made aware of that prejudice. tell the elderly, the inner-city dweller, the college student how biased america tass is. how it is investigate one party, cover up for the other party. as someone above said if the media did this to obama henever would have become president.

  • TSBench

    Remember when Rathergate broke, and the first line of defense was that the bloggers without ‘real’ journalism chops and geeky amateurs ‘sitting in mom’s basement in their PJs’ weren’t qualified to dissect the mighty CBS news machine ?

    How the narrative has changed. Today, it appears that you don’t need ANY qualifications to work as a researcher for the New York Times and the Washington Post.

    Although everyone already knew they were wholely-owned subsidiaries of the DNC, I really think that this come to be considered the time when the NYTs and Washington Post finally jumped the shark.

  • Here is the article that triggered the LA Times cover up.
    http://articles.latimes.com/2008/apr/10/nation/na-obamamideast10

    The LA Times claims they can’t “share the video” because they promised not to in exchange for access to the tape. http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/middleeast/la-na-video30-2008oct30,0,7519467.story

    The tape led the writer to this line in his article ” And yet the warm embrace Obama gave to Khalidi, and words like those at the professor’s going-away party, have left some Palestinian American leaders believing that Obama is more receptive to their viewpoint than he is willing to say”

    Even if the LA Times is to be believed, there is nothing to stop release of a full transcription and written analysis, minute by minute, of the Video Tape. The LA Times is being too clever by half. There are probably very few if any unreleased videos more newsworthy than this, and the LA Times owes it to every reader to provide a verified transcript of the Tape!

  • Otis B. Driftwood

    LAT also got got a copy of John F’n Kerry’s complete service record. Nothing to see here, move along.

  • Mad Hatter

    A newspaper that’s part of the Alinsky Media is covering up one of Obama’s anti Jewish close friends?

  • big L

    Fox is owned 20% by Prince Al-Aweed, Saudi. that is why the leash gets yanked.
    The Connecticut SSN of Obama may well belong to a man named Harrison J Brounel, or Bounel.
    also, in Apr 2008 the L.A. Times wrote an article on haveing a vid of Obama singing anti-israeli songs and the presence of Edward Said who was changing jobs.He was supposed to be a pali dignitary. There were jokes, antisemitic and Obama supposedly was dressed as a muslim in robes. The Times wrote the story that they had the tape and a desc of contents
    The Times won’t release the tape saying they were not asked to because it was a ‘game-changer’
    Michelle Malkin and 50 folks went over to the L>A.Times bldg in LA and demonstrated. The reporters were upstairs laughing and giving the crowd the finger.
    I hope Gov Palin runs so we can at least register a vote against all this, inspite of the looming Obama victory in 2012.

    What a stupid excuse for not posting/airing the video. Why bother to get a copy of it in the first place if not to air/post it? I call “Bullsh!t!” on their excuse.

    Someone out there needs to subpoena the tape and force the opening of Barry’s sealed records.

    In the meantime, an investigation into Barry’s illegal foreign campaign contributions, many from Gaza, needs to be carried out.

    The Clinton supporters and campaign were all over this during the primaries of 2008. We demanded to see the tape. We feared the worst and knew obama was an anti-semite, siding with terrorist organizations. I signed up to make calls on obama’s campaign website before the November 2008 elections. I called my assigned list and told them all not to vote for obama. Planning on doing it again.

Unlike CNN and MSNBC, Fox does try to be less bias. I appreciate it. At least Fox puts on and gives time to those who oppose Obama unlike other networks.

  • Richard Hardy

    Sarah Palin is a danger to the nation, not because she is an idiot and a moron, but because she inspires idiots and morons to act. Hopefully they’ll be too busy beating their chests to actually vote (if indeed they can even read). Palin can’t be dismissed easy by saying, “People are too smart to put her in the most powerful office on the planet.” This nation of simpletons allowed George W. Bush to rise to assume the office without even being elected to it. Presidents will be cleaning up that buffon’s mistakes for at least a generation. Let’s just hope one of them is not named Palin.

    organizations in 2001, George W. Bush probably still would have won
    even if the U.S. Supreme Court had allowed a limited statewide recount
    to go forward as ordered by Florida’s highest court.

    Bush also probably would have won had the state conducted the limited
    recount of only four heavily Democratic counties that Al Gore asked for, the study found.]

    To the Editors,

    The fact that the LA Times won’t release the Obama-Khalidi Tape but you ask citizen’s to help go through the 24,000 Sarah Palin emails looking for gotcha’s is beyond contemptible. Pravda has more balance these days than the LA Times. Let me know when honest journalism returns at the LA Times. Until then your progressive bias and selective logic journalism is just plain disgraceful.

    Oh and we don’t have the threat of socialism…. what we face is NEO LENONISM/FACISM.

  • Dear LA Times Editors:

    The Jewish Telegraphic Agency is reporting that the Democratic Party is in the process of launching a major counter-offensive designed to quash the general perception that President Obama is not a stalwart friend of Israel. According to the Democrats, the whole idea of a conflict between Obama and Israel is a myth propagated by the Republicans as part of their perennial futile chase for Jewish votes.

    The Los Angeles Times is in possession of a directly relevant and newsworthy video tape of a farewell banquet in Chicago for Palestinian Liberation Organization facilitator, Rashid Khalidi, and was attended by Khalidi by then senator Barak Obama, a long time friend of Khalidi, as well as other well known terrorists, such as Behrnadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. The Khalidi tape is substantially more newsworthy than the Palin emails the LA Times has been poring through and publicly releasing over the past days.

    Here is the article that triggered the LA Times cover up: http://articles.latimes.com/2008/apr/10/nation/na-obamamideast10

    The tape led the writer to write this line in his article:

    “And yet the warm embrace Obama gave to Khalidi, and words like those at the professor’s going-away party, have left some Palestinian American leaders believing that Obama is more receptive to their viewpoint than he is willing to say.”

    These warm lines are now known to Khalidi, Palestinian Amaerican Leaders, Barak Obama and the LA Times, but thanks to the LA Times, the very same “warm lines” are not known to the voting public that are the target of the major Democratic Party public relations counter offernsive.

    This makes the tape being suppressed by the LA Times directly and extraordinarily relevant to the news today and the presidential campaign that is unfolding.

    The LA Times claims they can’t “share the video” because they promised not to in exchange for access to the tape.http://www.latimes.com/news/nationworld/world/middleeast/la-na-video30-2008oct30,0,7519467.story.

    However, even if the LA Times is to be believed, there is nothing in a promise not to share the tape that stops release of a full transcription and written analysis (including a list of attendees identifiable on the video) minute by minute, of the Video Tape. The LA Times is being too clever by half by not disclosing the warm words spoken by Obama, listing the attendees, disclosing the other speeches and the reaction of Obama to the other speeches. There are probably very few if any unreleased videos more newsworthy than this, and the LA Times owes it to every reader to provide a verified transcript of the Tape!

    If it is a matter of money that prevents the transcription of the tape, please reply and the undersigned will arrange to fund the transcription by a reputable service in the offices of the LA Times, on the basis that, like the Sara Palin emails, the entirety of the data are made available to the public by the LA Times.

    I look forward to your prompt response.

    Sincerely

    Barry Davis

HE BELONGS IN THE MIDDLE EAST, NOT THE MIDWEST.

    The people who worked so hard to convince the US and the World that Barack Obama was so brilliant (and who couldn’t be bothered to give him one-one hundredth of the attention they gave the Governor) are the same people who are telling you over and over that Sarah Palin is stupid.

    May God wake up those that voted to bring our country into the dirt by electing this fraud. Shame on your ignorant Democrats that had no brain and didn’t even ‘LISTEN” TO WHAT HE TOLD YOU HE WANTED TO DO. Then after the election, the complete 180 degrees.
