Too Awesome For Words

This rocks:

I blogged a few weeks back about a convicted criminal, Larry Sinclair, who’d been begging the media to cover his wild allegations about Barack Obama. Today Sinclair trotted into the National Press Club to air the allegations before what can literally be described as an audience of international press, and can more accurately be described as an amused bunch of people taking in a circus act.

***

“Thank you.” Sinclair moved on and Sibley refused to let me ask another question. Why didn’t I wait until the end of the press conference and rush up to the accuser? The second Sinclair stopped taking questions, he fled the room and reporters were denied access to anyone but Sibley. I was a little disappointed until I heard the reason. Larry Sinclair was arrested after the press conference and is being held by the Washington, D.C. metropolitan police. He’s been charged as a fugitive from justice; one of his warrants can be seen here.

Question: Who will be the first to claim that if you speak out against Obamessiah, you get arrested? The Free Republic or No Quarter?

    triple bank shot! with murder!

    I pay attention to the Larry Sinclair stuff because of BO personality, I bet most of it is true, especially the part about Donald Young. There is a reason Rezko sent that message thru the judge. It was meant for Obama and Blogjevich. The man is scared to death. He is scared on the outside and now he is scared on the inside. He knows he is a marked man. We are talking about the Chicago Mob here, Rezko will not live a long time.

    RC says:

    Sinclair has just as much credibility as Jennifer Flowers and Paula Jones did. Neither had any evidence they had sex with Clinton but the right used them to great effect. Fox will make Sinclair a regular guest on their shows like they did with Flowers and Jones.
    Obamabots don’t see the real danger here. Obama has come out and denied all this so now they can leak more information like finding the driver and suggestive credit card receipts if they exist. Quickly then Obama would seem like a liar, “I did not have sexual relations with that man”. Clinton already used the excuse fellatio is not sex, maybe Obama can try that one.
    I made up a joke when Clinton got into trouble, it might apply to Obama soon. If Sinclair turns out to be telling the truth Obama can say he said the sex was fellatious, when people thought he said the sex allegations were fallacious.
    And Young’s death being blamed on Obama is not much different from Vince Foster and all the others that supposedly died around the Clintons. The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy is preparing to do the same with Obama as they did with Clinton, Gore and Kerry. They will probably help Sinclair with his legal problems like they subsidised Paula Jones with her.
    Obama has already changed his ideas on many issues like invading Pakistan, removing troops immediately from Iraq, etc, and will be made to look like a flip flopper like Kerry.

    Sinclair has just as much credibility as Jennifer Flowers and Paula Jones did. Neither had any evidence they had sex with Clinton

    For starters, neither Flowers nor Jones have a history as a con artist. It does not bode well for your credibility when you’re taken away in handcuffs at the end of your “press conference” — one where, if you actually listen to it, the few press that were there spent more time grilling Sinclair on his crazy that doing anything like taking him seriously.

    What got Clinton, and almost got Thomas, is that the cases against them did in fact, had corroborating evidence that made them credible — not enough to win a suit, but enough to get an ear by the mainstream media. Was it a right-wing cook-up op? Sure, but actually having evidence made it work, and even with all that, Clinton managed to make it to the White House. That’s an important point, if you’re trying to compare issues, here. It’s clear that your point is moot, because you can be smeared and still make it.

    I’m always depressed, actually, by the people who run around screaming about the GOP smear machine. It’s like you guys think that these guys are all-powerful, control the media, etc. If it was up to you, we’d be running the blandest people possible, or demagogues as bad as the worst GOPers out there, because that’s the “only way to win”.

    Fuck that. Neither tactic works. What does work is gritting your teeth, and working like a dog for every damned vote. Sitting around in a panic about the GOP smear machine means The Bastards Win.

    So feel free to concern troll, to tell me and others who support Obama that he’s doomed. You guys have been pulling this crap out of your asses since he won Iowa, and he’s yet to fall.

    You can choose to give in, and whimper in the corner like a whipped puppy. Or you can learn how to fight back, and not give in to smears and lies.

    Your choice. Your country.

    If you are dying of a brain tumor as he reveals in his press conference, you don’t really have much reason left to lie in public, especially if your last days are going to be turned upside down by the Obama zombies craving to tear you to shreds.

    BTW, a couple of pictures from the press conference were posted at hillaryclintonforum.net. Looks like the Obama zombies will have a harder time trying to squash this sordid story about their Savior.

    I THINK YOU BETTER READ/LISTEN TO THE STORY AGAIN. YOU HAVE TOO MUCH MIS-INFORMATION. THE LIMO DRIVE TOOK LARRY TO DOWNTOWN CHICAGO WHERE HE WAS INTRODUCED TO OBAMA BY THE DRIVE. OBAMA DID NOT GO TO GURNEY UNTIL THE NEXT DAY. THE DROVE TOGETHER IN THE LIMO TO PICK UP THE COCAINE AT OBAMA’S DIRECTION. AND WHY WOULD ANYONE GO THROUGH THE HELL AND DEATH THREATS AND PERSONAL SUFFERING FOR 9 MONTHS “FOR PUBLICITY”. GOOD GRIEF!

    Why would two US marshals show up for a bench warrant from CO that was only limited to within 30 miles of the state with no order for extradition back to CO?? Such a small thing considering Larry Sinclair was in fact in contact with CO regarding the warrant and was taking care of the issue…so Why was he arrested…Ask Obama!!

    From his website and from todays press conference this man has admitted every illegal thing he has ever done and has not hidden anything…This man must be telling the truth…Now..let Obama pony up!!

    It seems to me that Larry S. was probably supposed to be silenced and arrested on this old Class D Felony/Class A Misdemeanor warrant BEFORE he spoke. There was a mess up by the Obamabots and he was allowed his First Amendment right. Now we will see if their is any free press in the U.S. up to doing their job to investigate. If no one either proves or disproves this with Larry S.’s info Lord help us. We will know their is no longer truth in Journalism. Larry S. is brave to do this with death threats and being taken to jail on a warrant that doesn’t allow for extradition ( must be class a.b. or C felony)

    I’m back at Taylor Marsh’s site, as she’s following Hillary’s lead and supporting Obama — for her sake — despite her misgivings.

    Several Obama people have come back to the threads, and there are some “I was for Clinton but I’ll support Obama since Hillary is” posters.

    But there is a hardcore core of “Obama is evil, I don’t trust him, that Larry Sinclair might be on to something” still taking up bandwidth.

    I made up a joke when Clinton got into trouble, it might apply to Obama soon. If Sinclair turns out to be telling the truth Obama can say he said the sex was fellatious, when people thought he said the sex allegations were fallacious.
    And Young’s death being blamed on Obama is not much different from Vince Foster and all the others that supposedly died around the Clintons.

    Yeah, it sucks how the VRWC was able to use those trumped up scandals to keep Bill Clinton from being elected.

    Credibility, huh? I believe that Jennifer Flowers and Paula Jones have their own website, on which you can pay to download their lacivious descriptions of the alleged sexual contacts between them and the Clenis. Ok, gotta make a living. Bad people, perhaps, but at least the run-up to their 15 minutes of fame wasn’t a career in petty crime and drug addiction.

    Larry Sinclair, however, is an established small-time criminal, so let’s just put that “credibility” where it belongs, in the same trash bin as the Vince Foster fantasies, ok?

    Now I’m not saying he’s going away completely, but really, how focused do you think people are going to be on this “issue” as they struggle to come up with the money to prevent foreclosure, or buy gas, or mourn the loss of a loved one who died because he or she couldn’t afford health insurance?

    Let’s not waste any time worrying about what Fox News might or might not choose to put on the tube. Be content that they will always put up smears, however unsubstantiated. It’s what they do.

    Obama will handle this well, and is giving every early indication that he’s no John Kerry with regard to defending himself or his family.

    If Larry Johnson is representative of the kind of person who works for the CIA, we are so fucked.

    Yep, it’s pretty much the same over at Talk Left. At this point, there remains a hard core of posters over there who are convinced that Obama is evil/muslim/Manchurian candidate, etc. I still go over there, and my sense of this phenomenon is that it will die down, just as soon as people see how awfully bad McCain is and start to educate themselves about Obama. I’ve learned a lot about Obama in the past several months, and I’m convinced that we Democrats made the right choice.

    Obamabots don’t see the real danger here. Obama has come out and denied all this so now they can leak more information like finding the driver and suggestive credit card receipts if they exist. Quickly then Obama would seem like a liar, “I did not have sexual relations with that man”. Clinton already used the excuse fellatio is not sex, maybe Obama can try that one.

    I would argue that its the Republicans who don’t see the real danger here. Using the drug money laundered from his many all night gay orgies, Obama has commissioned the creation of several thousand killer androids disguised as some of our beloved pets. These killer androids possess mind-control rays that they use to manipulate the media and most of our law-enforcement and military leaders.

    I have thus far been able to avoid the effect of the androids mind-control beams by fashioning a Sombrero made entirely of aluminum and drinking my own urine. But I am being watched at every turn. I hope this post makes it to the general public before my alleged “dog” finds out and I am disintegrated. For the love of God, Obama must be stopped!

    Also, I’d like to remind people that:

    1. being gay is not illegal (not that I think he is, but there it is)
    2. Obama’s already admitted to doing drugs, and so what? George W. Bush did drugs too, and he was allowed to be president.

    Woodrow, I don’t agree with that at all. Obama either did this or not. If he did then he might have picked someone who would be a credible witness or he might have picked someone no one would believe. Sinclair might have an average history for a gay prostitute in those circumstances. Not many college graduates with clean police records go into this line of work.

    Flowers and Jones had no corroborating evidence either, no phone conversations, photos, stains on dresses, etc. I think Jones eventually had a police trooper supporting her story but they were not credible and the judge of the case threw it out.

    The point was it looked credible enough for the VRWC to attack Clinton with by giving Flowers and Jones money and legal help. They admitted as much after Clinton finished his second term.

    Sinclair so far does not appear to be taking money from anyone or he would have a slick lawyer paid for by the right. All having him arrested did was made him look like a martyr and persecuted since he admitted already these charges. At this point his story is not credible and not discredited either.

    RC says:

    “Yeah, it sucks how the VRWC was able to use those trumped up scandals to keep Bill Clinton from being elected.”

    Shygetz maybe you’ve forgotten how Clinton was nearly impeached over this. Also one of the main reasons Hillary lost was association with these very scandals of her husbands. In fact Hillary helped Obama because since it was not clear who the nominee would be it has delayed the right wing attacks on Obama until closer to the election.

    “Concern troll also can’t judge credibility between a pair of nominally innocent women and a career con-artist.”

    Doug they were hardly innocent, both were being paid off to continue their stories and had no evidence to back up their stories. They may or may not have been telling the truth but all they had was a superficially more credible background. If they had criminal records do you really think the right wouldn’t have still used them to get at Clinton?

    You’re missing the point here, Flowers, Jones and Sinclair were all either lying or telling the truth. All had little or no evidence. If they were lying then they are all criminals regardless of whether they had actual criminal records or not. If Flowers made up her story then she was a bigger con artist than Sinclair was ever convicted of. If Jones made up her story then she was using the courts for a false charge of sexual harrassment.

    On the other hand if they were telling the truth then their criminal history is irrelevant. Sometimes criminals have true stories too.

    There’s a circular argument here. Flowers was a bad person because she accused Clinton falsely and since she was a bad person for this we shouldn’t believe her story about Clinton. Since Sinclair has no history of blackmailing people over gay sex his other criminal history is irrelevant. Obama does lisp like a gay though.

    There’s going to be shit like this non-stop until November, some of it much less amusing than this. The GOP can’t win on their policies, and they can’t win with their recent displays of greed and incompetence. The main thing their election gurus can do is bring fear, uncertainty and doubt to the table. Over the next few months, people you know and respect will be saying things like, “Gee, I don’t know, I keep hearing all these stories about Obama. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire!”

    They’re going to plant stories, they’re going to pop more accusers out of the woodwork, they’re going to use concern trolls, they’re going to astroturf letters to the editor, and they’re going to use push polls. It takes no skill to predict that they will do exactly what they have been doing for the last few decades.

    The Republicans lose elections on individual issues that are important to voters; they’ve lost in this micro level for years. They win elections when people don’t pay enough attention, and are distracted by these endless games.

    However, I don’t think the label, blame, and scare tactics work so well when people are grinding their teeth with anger over how much Bush and the Republicans have shat on America and all it can stand for.

    Of course they are, dear, but if Sinclair is the best they’ve got, which so far seems to be the case, the race is Obama’s to lose.
