Report: Secret Service Says ‘Kill Him’ Allegations at Palin Rally Unfounded

leave a comment »


A Secret Service agent called charges that a man yelled “kill him” in reference to Barack Obama during a Sarah Palin rally “unfounded” .

The summary of the story goes as follows: After an October 14, 2008 Sarah Palin rally the Scranton Times reported that “one man” in the audience yelled something offensive and incendiary. The story reports there were remarks of “terrorists”, “kill him” and “off with his head”.

This was the basis for Representative John Lewis’s remarks which accused Mr. McCain of race-baiting and xenophobia. Mr. Lewis’s remarks referenced earlier years in America and recalled events of mob lynchings, churches being torched and deaths. In essence, Mr. Lewis pointed an accusing finger at Mr. McCain to label him as an unabashed racist.

The accusation advanced by Mr. Lewis is intellectually putrid. Mr. Lewis judges John McCain and Sarah Palin to be guilty by association to a single audience member, a stranger who harbors ill-will. Mr. Lewis holds Mr. McCain and Ms. Palin personally responsible. It is hard for me to understand how Mr. Lewis got to be where he is by being so obtuse, but there is a part of me that wants to point to affirmative action, but I won’t; that would be “wrong”.

If this wasn’t enough to enrage any thinking American wanting nothing more for his country than righteousness and fairness there is now a new element of this story to ponder.

The FBI got involved. Threats of the nature reported by the story are not ignored by the FBI. They did their job to discover the truth and to possibly bring charges against these radicals. (I will even call them terrorists.) People like this who seek to cripple our political process and to injure and kill need to be put in jail. Rightly so.

However, there is a problem. The FBI interviewed their own agents to discover what they may have heard. They stand and mingle among the people in and around the audience. They are alleged to be everywhere. Certainly they would have heard these reported remarks and would have converged on the idiot(s) to be shepherded away for questioning. The agents heard nothing. The FBI also interviewed other members of the rally with the same result. It appears no one heard the reported remarks. The FBI then interviewed reporter David Singleton / STAFF WRITER who is the only one to have heard and reported the alleged remarks emanating from the audience. All he can say is that he heard it… allegedly.

The FBI’s investigation is on-going. As it looks now the reporter “invented” the incident and placed it into his story. At best, it was dishonest. At worst, sinister.

So – there we have it.

  • We have the press injecting into their reporting lies and falsehoods designed to do what, incite? agitate? slander? victimize? influence thinking? This is not only wrong – it is dangerous to this country and to her people.
  • We have Mr. Lewis who then used the mainstream press to launch emotionally loaded swill against Mr. McCain and his campaign and to call him a racist and agitator wanting to herald in the dark days of an earlier America. It is presented to America as if it were fact. (Meanwhile, we cannot get a valid birth certificate of Mr. Obama. Even as I write this there are investigators in Hawaii who are not being allowed to put down their 10 dollar fee to acquire a public document recording Mr. Obama’s birth. In fact, it is Mr. Obama who is denying their access to it. What on earth is there on a birth certificate that is so sensitive that Mr. Obama does not want anyone to see? )
  • We have the press eager to advance the reporter’s fabricated event as fact at a time when Americans are getting set to cast their vote for the man who will occupy the most powerful seat in government, yet we cannot get the press to even adequately dig into Mr. Obama’s associations with William Ayers, Acorn, his associations with officials in pre-meltdown Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae or to even report on where Mr. Obama was born.

Don’t look now, but the press is attempting to employ that old Jedi Mind Trick, waiving their hand across our collective faces and uttering “These aren’t the issues you are looking for. Move along.”

The liberals should be as concerned. They should know that if the press can skew stories in such a way as to paint a group of Americans in a certain light they should know that it can happen to them, too. Ah, but the press is staffed with people of the same ilk, so we know that can not happen.

If the press did their job, they would have discovered the truth as did the FBI but like so many times before, the press fails the people…. intentionally.

There is a double standard flowing through our mainstream media. It is fomented by ABC, CBS, NBC, MS-NBC, PBS (funded with tax dollars), The New York Times, The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, The Boston Harold, et. al. Some of us know about this double standard while others choose to ignore or deny its very existence. Some of us know it has existed in this country for a long, long, time.

And the beat goes on.
