White House Says They Released Video of Extravagant “Alice in Wonderland” Party – The White House Lied

A new book released this week revealed that the Obamas hid an extravagant Halloween “Alice in Wonderland” party from the American public for fear of creating the wrong impression during the worst recession since the Great Depression.

The White House didn’t want you to know about their expensive “Alice in Wonderland” party. (More pictures here)

In response to this news White House spokesman Eric Shultz told reporters that the White House released video of the extravagant “Alice in Wonderland” party from 2009.
Yahoo reported:

White House spokesman Eric Shultz disputed Kantor’s take, saying the event was not covered up for fear of public backlash. “This was an event for local school children from the Washington DC area and for hundreds of military families,” Shultz said in a statement released to Politico. “If we wanted this event to be a secret, we probably wouldn’t have invited the press corps to cover it, release photos of it to Flickr, or post a video from it on the White House website,” he said.

Not True.
The White House did release a video in 2009. But the video they released showed the Obamas handing out candy to children from the Washington DC area and from military families.

The video released by the White House does not show or even mention the “Alice in Wonderland” party held later that night.

Sad. They hid it and now they’re lying about it.

Verum Serum had more on the cover-up.

Funny that neither the White House blog post I linked above, nor the photos or video referenced by the White House spokesperson make any mention of Depp or Burton’s participation, or any “Alice in Wonderland” themed event at all.

News of the event apparently leaked to a small number of Depp fan sites (which is how I found these photos), but if the press assigned to cover the White House knew anything about it then they didn’t report it. Which is the whole point of this story to begin with.

Politico’s own report from 2009 made no mention of these details either.

UPDATE: The White House also omitted the party guests from the White House Visitor’s log.

    Boy. The comment at #2 must have been a doozy. Anyhoo, whether it’s a lie depends on one’s state of mind. Isn’t that something along the lines of Holder’s comment re Fast and Furious?

  • AndyN

    I’m not surprised that they’re lying, I’m just surprised that with as much practice as they have they’re still so bad at it. This always surprised me about Clinton too – why tell an easily disprovable lie when it would be just as easy to make up an excuse that can’t be disproven? Were I one of the president’s handlers I would have told him to make a statement claiming that they’d kept the whole thing from public view because he was trying not to put the spotlight on himself about something he was doing for children of service members. Most of us wouldn’t have believed him, but we would have had no way of confirming our doubts and we would have seemed petty for attacking him for it.

    Lyin’ mofos in the White House?? It can’t be!!!

  • Let’s be honest, they did not what us to know that spent more tax dollars and while I think it is great that an event took place for the military and children we out here in the “real world” are telling out kids and grandkids that we cannot afford to buy them this or that because most are out of work or holding onto the few dimes they have left before the government takes them.
    The lies? Do we expect anything else out of this bunch in the White House and either houses of congress? It is time to clean house up there again. If they knew where to find the Constitution maybe we would not be having these issues in DC and in this country.

  • jhp

    I don’t get it. Why do you have a problem with Alice in Wonderland?

    Is there some sort of hidden liberal agenda that is brainwashing children or what?

    “News of the event apparently leaked to a small number of Depp fan sites”

    So fans have the information? The Obama’s had to know this would get out sooner or later.

    Truthfully, we are aware of many cover ups. The worst is F & F. The next are all the Solyndras, billions wasted, 5 Trillion he has spent, reduction of military, loss of jobs.

    We already know that Obama’s are big spenders and have hidden records and personal information from the American people. This is chump chain. Hidden yes.

    OT

    (We had to know this was coming. Obama wants to feel that Change was part of his Presidency, White House adviser are working hard to prop him up.

    Obama 2012: ‘Osama Bin Laden Will Never Again Walk the Face of This Earth. That’s What Change Is.’

    At a campaign event this evening at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C., President Obama indicated that he had successfully brought about “change”–an ambiguous 2008 campaign promise–by killing terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. From the official White House transcript:

    And change is keeping one of the first promises I made in 2008 — ending the war in Iraq and bringing our troops home. (Applause.) The war is over and our troops are home. And instead, we refocused our efforts on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11. And thanks to our brave men and women in uniform, al Qaeda is weaker than it’s ever been, and Osama bin Laden will never again walk the face of this Earth. That’s what change is. (Applause.)

    The president also listed Obamacare as a change he was responsible for, though he failed to mention the unpopularity of his signature legislation.

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-campaigns-osama-bin-laden-will-never-again-walk-face-earth-s-what-change_616238.html

    Release this video of Osama BinLaden’s death.

    ____________

    The trouble with lying is that it becomes habitual. After a lifetime of lying, people no longer know how to tell the truth, they become enamored of their own lies, lying becomes instinctual. And of course people who don’t lie recognize them for what they are because when every word out of your mouth is a lie, it becomes difficult – no matter how “brilliant” you may be – to remember who you told what to.

    The Odrama Queens are partying like “The Masque of the Red death” while the nation suffers the consequences of their evil Marxist politics.

    Did anyone notice??? Back when Obama declared that Israel SHOULD return to 1967 borders??? That within 3 days, Joplin Missouri was destroyed by Tornadoes – “Winds of Change”!

    I think that is what is called an “ILLEGAL BLOW” to the Stomach, in a fight.

    Humans might not ascribe these disasters to our National Leaders – but what will God Himself say about it? I remember things that King David did that the People paid the price for, and this falls within that realm.

    #22 Rose –

    Joplin, MO, is smack dab in the middle of tornado alley. If the Hand of God was going to send a tornado as a message to our wayward rulers, I suspect that God might be a little more imaginative as to location and be able to find somewhere the presence of a killer tornado might really stand out as unusual.

    Are you at all those OT posts again?

    What I find ironic is that at the same time as Conservatives were going to TEA Party rallies to protest against the spend-and-tax policies of the Obama administration, the Obama administration is spending OUR money on a stupid “Alice In Wonderland” tea party.

    What a SCOAMF.

    “Barack and Michelle Obama wasted taxpayer dollars on a junket that seemed designed for one purpose – to take care of their Chicago cronies who stood to gain financially from the Olympics racket,” says Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The fact that Valerie Jarrett needed an ‘ethics waiver’ to lead this failed bid to bring the Olympics to Chicago tells you almost all you need to know about the scandalous nature of this trip.”

  • Gary

    I don’t see why they would cover this up.
    Look at how they flaunt their aircraft and secret service detail, or the numerous state trips/vacations by Michelle and her various gal pals.
    This couldn’t have costed more than that.

    The salient point (I think) is that, as always, they’ve co-opted unassailables to be their stool pigeons. “Hundreds of military families” and D.C. school children (read between the lines on that one). We’re not allowed to criticize those two groups, so obviously they felt covered to have any kind of party they wanted.

    A nice campaign ad would be one showing an average American family living in modest circumstances being handed the bill for this party.

    Did I say costed? Sorry, it’s a southern thing.

  • Rick Blaine

    MSM was obviously asked to sign an agreement to keep this quiet! Remember Sarky and O bad-mouthing Bibi and then demanding that the media present sign the agreement to keep quiet? Of course, the “public’s right to know” only matters when a Repub is in office!

    Bingo.
    ALso, think of what a party that would have been for all those military kids who got DRIED FRUIT, M&Ms a pat on the head and “GET LOST.” The Obamas withheld that party from the kids whose parents are serving the country, it was for the Obama’s personal indulgences.
    And WHO paid for it?

    THat’s the PRINCIPLE of it. I’m glad the military kids weren’t grossed and totally freaked out by the ever disgusting creep Tim Burton and his usual twisted reality goulshow. Serving “blood punch?” in “vials?” Really?

    When you are a community organizer and the people you organize are profoundly gullible, lying or lying by omission is excepted without question. This like most of the WH lies are only exposed by the blogs on the internet.

    It is OK, they had it coming to them you know, reparations for the slavery they had to endure. Well anyway for the hard life of oppression they had to put up with growing up and being educated in our finest schools and never having a chance to advance because of their color. Oh just because they can.

    Regarding, #44 jhill, the point of the bitching is that lefties and the MSM would find this kind of partying to be lavish and inappropriate if W had been involved. The Great O has asked that we all sacrifice and they seem to be unwilling to make any sacrifices. On the contrary, they are living large at our expense. Of course the obviously question is why didn’t the media even report this event? Did you, jhill, bitch about W vacays?

    The Obamas made a big pious show of handing crappy dried fruit to military kids, which cost nothing and were probably inedible and then they shoved them out the door so they could blow-out party for themselves in STYLE. No dried fruit for THEIR kids. Only top of the line for Sasha and Malia – at taxpayer expense. Johnny Depp wasn’t prancing around for the lonely kids of soldiers, who absent becase they were on the front lines serving our country … noooo.

    Dried FRUIT.

    So …uh, I knew that Rush was a big, fat, drug-riddled idiot—but this is good—what he’s upset about now is that the President threw a Halloween party for our troops’ children…yeah. He (and Fox news of course) are saying it was kept ‘secret’….

    However, White House spokesman Eric Shultz cleared that up with: “If we wanted this event to be a secret, we probably wouldn’t have invited the press corps to cover it, release photos of it to Flickr, or post a video from it on the White House website,” he said.

    So basically, as Colbert pointed out: “Your President used his Hollywood connections to throw a Halloween party for our troop’s kids and then told us about it…”

    What’s the non-issue here…?

    Yeah.
