You probably missed it because it happened on Black Friday when most people’s minds were on other things.
It didn’t escape Michelle Malkin’s notice, though.
I’ve started looking through the data. And you can, too, right here (suggestion: click on the release date and arrange with newest entries first – they’re dated 11/22/2011):
A couple of things that jumped out at Michelle:
•This August 5, 2011 visit to the president by MSNBC host Rachel Maddow and her party of 7 (click for full size)
She made no mention of the visit on her Aug. 5 show. What did she and POTUS discuss? Just wondering…
Fun fact: According to the White House logs, this was Maddow’s fifth trip to the White House — and fourth to see the president personally.
Maddow’s specialty is making outrageous, false and hence libelous claims about conservatives, and then chirpily issuing corrections only when called out, (unless she’s too embarrassed to show up when the truth finally catches up to her liberal fantasies.)
According to the newly released records, Creamer was at the White House five times in August 2011 meeting with various officials, including Jon Carson, Cecilia Munoz, and Stephanie Cutter. He’s listed nearly 60 times in visitor logs since the start of the administration.
Well isn’t that special? Robert Creamer – ring a bell?
- Served 5 months in prison (and 11 months in house arrest) for tax evasion and bank fraud
- While in prison, he wrote a book that later served as a blueprint for Democrat proposals for universal health care.
- Calls for the “democratization of wealth” in America, and for “progressive control of governments around the world”
- Advocates amnesty for illegal aliens
Born in 1948, Robert Creamer is the husband of Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky. He formerly served as executive director of the Illinois Public Action Fund (where his wife was the program director), and subsequently as a leader of Citizen Action/Illinois. He was also a lobbyist for George Soros’s Open Society Institute. Today Creamer heads the Strategic Consulting Group, a political consultancy whose list of clients includes ACORN, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), the AFL-CIO, the United Steelworkers Union of America, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and dozens of other leftist or Democratic Party state organizations.
Pursuant to an FBI investigation, Creamer in 2006 was indicted for bank fraud and tax evasion. During his trial, he received some 200 letters of support from such notables as Richard Durbin, Carol Browner, Jesse Jackson, and David Axelrod. Creamer ultimately was sentenced to five months in federal prison plus eleven months of house arrest. Upon his sentencing, he publicly pledged: “For the rest of my life I will continue to do whatever I can to work for social and economic justice.”
While incarcerated — or on “forced sabbatical,” as he called it — Creamer wrote a 628-page political manual titled Stand Up Straight! How Progressives Can Win (published in 2007). In the Acknowledgements section of the book, Creamer stated that his political views had been deeply influenced by “the legendary community organizer” Saul Alinsky.
Stand Up Straight! advanced the notion that the Democratic Party could win a permanent majority in Congress by doing the following:
- passing a national health care bill, thereby turning more people into wards of an ever-expanding government, and of the party that works to grow government; and
- giving amnesty to all illegal immigrants, thereby creating, virtually overnight, a large new constituency of Democratic voters.
The author conceded that his desire “to reshape the structure of one-sixth of the American economy” (i.e., the health care sector) was contingent upon the Democrats being able to control 60 votes in the U.S. Senate, and upon the election of a “progressive Democrat” to the White House — conditions that could, in Creamer’s estimation, be achieved by the year 2009. Notably, his book was effusive in its praise of then-Senator Barack Obama.
Creamer’s book advocated a “public plan” that would guarantee every U.S. resident’s “right” to health care; this plan eventually would serve as a model for the “public option” in subsequent legislative proposals by Congressional Democrats.
This guy visited five times in August alone, and sixty times since Obama’s election. Amazing. He and the President must have some things in common – i.e. a fondness for Saul Alinsky, the “democratization of wealth” in America, and for “progressive control of governments around the world”. I wonder if he’s also a golfing buddy.
As Malkin notes, it’s up to conservatives to “crowd-source” the White House visitor log data, as WaPo and the NYTimes can’t be bothered with such trivialities. We’re not talking about mining for dirt in Sarah Palin’s private emails, or anything.
Ho! Doug Ross found something….Red Alert: Deputy AG Behind Fast and Furious Met With President Obama Four Times During The Height Of The Operation:
Item 1: In March of 2011, President Obama denied knowledge of ‘Operation Fast and Furious’ — the Justice Department program that sent thousands of murder weapons to Mexican drug cartels.
Item 2: According to documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee, Deputy Attorney General Gary Grindler was keenly aware of all aspects of Operation Fast and Furious as early as March 2010. In a letter to A.G. Holder, Chairman Issa wrote… (hit link for rest.)
Item 3: Newly released White House Visitor Logs list Grindler as having visited the White House 40 times, but only four times with the President himself. All four meetings with the President occurred over a two-week period, between 7 May 2010 and 19 May 2010.
Gay Patriot notes the galling double standard as a Washington Post reporter “crowdsources” for dirt on Newt on Twitter: Did Washington Post ever look for outlandish/incorrect predictions and quotes from Barack Obama’s past?
Think about the profound impact and historical significance of being the reporter who nails down the Obama White House’s involvement in Fast and Furious. Your work would contribute to an epic house cleaning not only in the White House, but the DOJ, and ATF which need a complete fumigation. The impact would be felt for years to come.
But would that help The Party? No – Must. Stop. Newt….must. protect. Precious….
