There are no lengths Obama will not stoop to silence those who fiercely oppose him. He can hide behind curtains of insulation and plausible deniability, but at the end of the day we know he and his administration are behind the attacks to silence critics.
There are documented instances of his administration threatening reporters and demanding they stop reporting on specific things that the White House feels would embarrass Obama or face their wrath. During his first campaign journalists from three major newspapers were removed from his campaign plane because they had endorsed McCain.
CBS News investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told radio host Laura Ingraham how the White House had cursed and yelled at her because of her reporting on the illegal gun-running operation Fast and Furious. The White House intimidated CBS into not permitting Attkisson to do interviews about Fast and Furious. An Orlando Sentinel reporter was kept locked in a closet until after Joe Biden had concluded speaking at a fundraiser.
The White House denied they had threatened to remove Carla Marinucci and possibly other Hearst reporters from the press pool covering Obama in the Bay Area in April 2011 and then lied about it. CBS News reporter is also on record protesting the limited press access to Obama fundraisers. The Obama truth team (an specious oxymoron if ever there was one) ordered ISP GoDaddy to shut down the political website of private investigator Douglas Hagmann, because it supposedly contained information that was “maliciously harmful to individuals in the government” (read: it exposed truth about Obama).
The DISCLOSE ACT (Democracy Is Strengthened by Casting Light On Spending in Elections Act), Or The Mob Intimidation Act as Mark Levin called it, [was defeated in the Senate this past June]. [It was] not about disclosing – [it was] about intimidation. DISCLOSE ( another ridiculous misnomer by the Democrats) [was] an attempt to require ALL 501-C4s and 3′s to disclose political causes and contributions made. Under the prism of ‘transparency’ in campaigns, the Act according to McConnell [was] not at all what [it was]…painted [as] by the Democrats.

These are not even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Obama silencing and bullying his critics. Which brings me to my blog (Mychal-Massie.com). Obama’s truth squad has engaged in the most vicious of attacks against me and my site. They have changed the language in my syndicated column “When Will Obama Crack In Public” (WND.com; 4/19/11), to include vulgar racial epithets that are now attributed to me. It was done specifically to marginalize my voice to blacks. Many of you have written me pursuant to this column.
Wednesday morning my blog was crashed for the third time in a week. Earlier this year we identified and blocked trolls trying to surreptitiously cause disruption on the blog. Earlier this month we requested your help in our battle against these attacks. The attack that crashed us this morning, I am told cost north of $50,000 to send. That kind of money and organization doesn’t come from a teenager with nothing better to do. It is the work of this administration to silence blog and marginalize me because we are stepping on their toes.
We would expect a Communist regime to go to these lengths to silence critics, but this is America not Cuba, Venezuela or Communist China. The small number of media outlets that do not agree with Obama’s policies are terrified to openly criticize him, but a growing number, myself obviously included, are not.
My blog doesn’t have the financial backing that many of the larger ones do, but that is because we refuse to compromise and bow before the GOP/RNC and inside the beltway politicos that would donate heavily. I assure you we will not bow before Obama and we will not be silenced. With your continued support and readership, we will continue to speak out against the racial discord Obama and company practice, we will continue to speak out against the mendacious megalomaniac and keep you informed.
We will not curtsy to the GOP as sycophantic ideologues and we will not be intimidated by Erebusic Marxist-Leninists whose goal is to fundamentally change America.
