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.

    Both Obamas open their mouths and lies come out. Routine for them.

  • HadEnough

    Sounds like how other records including the birth certificate are handled by this administration………hail hail to King Odumbo………he can do no wrong………

    The real untold story is that Mrs. Obama could not change her costume and wears it to this day.

    Oops, redacted #2 post.

    Troll droppings no doubt.

  • Sasja

    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.

    I have to wonder how much it costs to make the highest-paid actor in Hollywood into your personal court jester.

    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.

  • Patty

    Transparency? What transparency?

  • noislamocommie

    Paging Sheriff Joe Arpaio….

    no no no!! Obama runs the most “transparent”
    White House in US history, you’re a racist liar..



  • Patty

    Can you imagine Laura Bush dressed as a Leopard?

  • Rock

    If memory serves me correctly the Nov. 2009 party was the one where Code Pink scum harassed and terrorized those military families has they arrived at the White House, bet there was no mention of that by the much vaulted White House Propaganda Machine. :-(

    (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.


    Release this video of Osama BinLaden’s death.
