Well the hot item of the day floating around the net is an excerpt posted by the NY Post about a conversation Rev Wright had with Obama written in an unauthorized biography by Edward Klein. Apparently Obama wanted Wright to stop speaking publicly until after the election in ’08. Wright claims he was offered $150K from someone close to Obama via emails to one of the members of his church.
Does anyone doubt this conversation? I think it’s clear now after 3 and a half years this corrupt regime will do whatever it takes to silence people even those deemed friends to hide WHO Obama is. Unfortunately the new media is doing the job the main stream media should have done back then in vetting Barry. Glenn Beck has even taken it a step further calling Obama’s life a fairy tale!
The â€˜bribeâ€™ to silence Wright
When sermons of Obamaâ€™s Chicago pastor, Jeremiah Wright, surfaced during the Iowa primaries, it threatened to derail Obamaâ€™s campaign. ABC aired one where Wright screamed, â€œGoddamn America!â€ Edward Klein interviewed Wright, who told him Obamaâ€™s team tried to buy his silence.
â€˜Man, the media ate me alive,â€ Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicagoâ€™s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. â€œAfter the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.â€
â€œWho sent the e-mail?â€ I asked Wright.
â€œIt was from one of Barackâ€™s closest friends.â€
â€œHe offered you money?â€
â€œNot directly,â€ Wright said. â€œHe sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.â€
â€œHow much money did he offer you?â€
â€œOne hundred and fifty thousand dollars,â€ Wright said.
â€œDid Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?â€
â€œYes,â€ Wright said. â€œBarack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place. And I said, â€˜Youâ€™re used to coming to my home, youâ€™ve been here countless times, so whatâ€™s wrong with coming to my home?â€™ 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 donâ€™t know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.
â€œAnd one of the first things Barack said was, â€˜I really wish you wouldnâ€™t do any more public speaking until after the November election.â€™ He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, â€˜I wish you wouldnâ€™t speak. Itâ€™s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.â€™
â€œAnd what did you say?â€ I asked. â€œI said, â€˜I donâ€™t see it that way. And anyway, how am I supposed to support my family?â€™ And he said, â€˜Well, I wish you wouldnâ€™t speak in public. The press is gonna eat you alive.â€™
â€œBarack said, â€˜Iâ€™m sorry you donâ€™t see it the way I do. Do you know what your problem is?â€™ And I said, â€˜No, whatâ€™s my problem?â€™ And he said, â€˜You have to tell the truth.â€™ I said, â€˜Thatâ€™s a good problem to have. Thatâ€™s a good problem for all preachers to have. Thatâ€™s why I could never be a politician.â€™
â€œAnd he said, â€˜Itâ€™s going to get worse if you go out there and speak. Itâ€™s really going to get worse.â€™
â€œAnd he was so right.â€
