Bribery? Did The 2008 Obama Campaign Really Pay Rev. Wright To Shut Up?

Reverend Jeremiah Wright caused problems for President Barack Obama’s campaign in 2008, and new details have emerged alleging that the then-candidate tried to convince his former pastor to keep quiet.

The retired pastor, who came under fire after an old sermon where he said that the September 11 terrorist attacks were ‘America’s chickens coming home to roost’, said that he was offered $150,000 to stay silent until the election was over.

Journalist Edward Klein interviewed Mr Wright and included their conversation in his new book, The Amateur.

‘After the media went ballistic on me, I received an email offering me money not to preach until the November presidential election,’ Mr Wright told the author, as relayed by The New York Post.

Mr Wright said that ‘one of Barack’s closest friends’ sent an email to a member of the church saying that he would pay $150,000 for the pastor to keep quiet for fear of saying something incendiary.

    I hope that this is not true. If it is, it is still water under the bridge. We all make mistakes…

    Since Pres. Obama threw Rev. Wright under the bus, this story regarding the bribe is very plausible. Smh.

    “Since Pres. Obama threw Rev. Wright under the bus, this story regarding the bribe is very plausible. Smh.” by onmyway2012

    Indeed the story is extremely plausible. All President Barack Obama cares about is using people to get votes to promote himself and nothing else.

    Let’s be real here.

    1. What has BO done to benefit the masses in the Black community?

    http://www.ceyseau.net/

    2. What has BO done to use his influence as President to promote the impeachment of no good Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas?

    http://www.ceyseau.net/

    3. What has BO done to use his influence to honor his sworn duty to uphold the U.S. Constitution in behalf of any law abiding U.S. born descendant of slavery egregiously violated by the atrocities of government?

    If the answers to questions 1, 2, and 3 is a huge nothing, then you’ve hit the “jack pot” by answering items 1, 2, and 3 correctly and truthfully.

    Since BO himself uses the excuse that he must represent every ethnic group, and not just the Black community……he has even failed here……because the Black community is a part of the “every” ethnic group.

    http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-787104

    More examples also exist that are two numerous to post here, to prove that BO is a hypocrite out to use anyone to promote himself.

    Be it past (former Congresswoman Diane Watson) or the present…President Barack Obama, Congresswoman Karen Bass, multiple members of the Congressional Black Caucus, formally petitioned but no response of any kind 2nd District LA County Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas, Los Angeles City Council persons Bernard Parks, disgraceful Herb Wesson, etc., are under oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution, the California Constitution, the appropriate State Constitution, the “rule of law”……especially in instances to where any law abiding U.S. citizen, who is also a constituent in his or her jurisdiction is egregiously violated by government .

    USC, Amendment 14 – Citizenship Rights.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
    CALIFORNIA CONSTITUTION, ARTICLE 6, JUDICIAL

    SEC. 19. The Legislature shall prescribe compensation for judges of
    courts of record.
    A judge of a court of record may not receive the salary for the
    judicial office held by the judge while any cause before the judge
    remains pending and undetermined for 90 days after it has been
    submitted for decision.

    “There are cases where an individual has been wrongfully treated by his government and about the only way, unless the individual resorts to court, and even in some cases the courts are not able to give proper relief, the only area or avenue open to the individual is through his representative. When you find a bona fide error has been made, I suggest that you make a maximum effort to remedy it. This I feel is a vital and important function of those of us in the House of Representatives”.
    Authors: Donald G. Tacheron and Morris Udall, from the book entitled, “The Job of the Congressman”, pages 65 and 66.
    (The above excerpt “The Job of the Congressman” holds true for any elected office holder)

    When the court system fails to do its job then elected officials are under oath to hold judges accountable to the Constitution…..a primary function of all elected officials.

    (Illegal actions of court officials such as Deputy Court Clerk Delores Odom Stocks, unresolved as mandated by USC 14th Amendment, CC Article 6, Section 19, Superior Court Cases 895188, BC385899, Theft by Court, Sacramento Superior Court Case # 34-2011-00109374, Clean Hands doctrine and Case 1CA17487, unethical and wrongful actions of the LADWP, etc., etc.)

    “For what it’s worth, Obama hasn’t done much for us white folks, either.” by Mr. White Guy

    With President Obama, Caucasians and/or others, get to experience and feel the wrath that Black America has been a victim of for decades, as it concerns inept elected officials who are a disgrace to the essence of what it means to be an elected official.

    ….So glad that there are not enough black voters to elect or re-elect President Obama and/or other misfits into a position of such influence………..

    …….so much so, it takes some of the pressure off of just the black electorate as being the only dysfunctional voting block in the U.S.

    In 2004 Obama Opposed Gay Marriage.
    In 2008 Obama Opposed Gay Marriage.
    In 2012 Obama Supports Gay Marriage, just like he did in 1996.

    A while back President Barack Obama wouldn’t have supported, condoned, or promote dsame sex marriage under any condition. It respect yourself and if you expect to earn the respect of anyone else, it would behoove an individual to hold your beliefs, your values, than than to “abandon” all that you believe in by compromising your values.

    Furthermore, President Obama and/or the Obama Administration place more value in serving or promoting the rights of anchor babies/illegal/undocumented aliens…..than serving and protecting the rights of U.S. citizens and legal immigrants.

    With BO, it’s all about getting votes, raising money, etc., and no commitment to principle…..which means BO is sinking his own ship.

    ……..”Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

    With all the information that exists to show that BO doesn’t give a rat’s @ss about the black community coupled with deceit on the part of President Obama……..

    President Barack Obama like any other elected official is under oath. “If he can’t take the heat, then step down”.

    Furthermore BO still a failure because BO has not been fair to all the people.

    http://www.ceyseau.net/

    As matter of fact in many instances he has failed to uphold his oath of office to uphold the U.S. Constitution in behalf of all U.S. citizens.

    Well Tellie B and/or anyone else of similar misguided unfounded expression,

    President Obama is responsible for his own demise in that he has contempt for the people, including law abiding U.S. born descendants of slavery………meaning with or without my input BO is making himself disgraceful, unworthy of respect or admiration, etc., etc.

    It is not important to me, whether you are convinced or not, because the truth stands on its own merit.

    The information as posted is not for:

    1. The dysfunctional.

    2. Obama worshippers, even when it has been proven that Obama is a disgrace to the office.

    3. Individuals who have a poor understanding of what it means to be an elected official, and an elected official’s mandated sworn under oath duty to uphold the “rule of law”, the U.S. Constitution, the “Bill of Rights”.

    ………for all the individuals who comprehend the written or who understand the primary function of an elected official, the information is extremely useful and valuable.

    ……President Obama and the Obama Administration need to go and Tomorrow Would not be Too Soon!

    ……….Like it or lump it, I’m not about to go away or to stop circulating this information because it is true.
