Thug-In-Chief Obama Offered $150,000 In Hush Money To Jeremiah Wright

John Edwards is basically on trial for this very thing.  Of course he’s a quivering Democrat pile of slime, too.

Obama’s $150,000 ‘BRIBE’: Team ‘paid Rev Wright to stay quiet during 2008 campaign’

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.

He said that following the incident, the then-candidate Mr Obama requested a private, secret meeting with the Reverend to make a personal plea.

Mr Wright said that, while he wasn’t sure whether or not Mr Obama was wearing a wire, they met and discussed their options.

‘And one of the first things Barack said was, “I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election,”‘ Mr Wright told Mr Klein.

‘He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, “I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.”‘

Mr Obama, who was in the midst of navigating the ensuing political storm that occurred after Rev. Wright’s comments went public, hoped to stem the tide by getting his long-time family friend to ease off until Election Day.

‘Barack said, “I’m sorry you don’t see it the way I do. Do you know what your problem is?” And I said, “No, what’s my problem?” And he said, “You have to tell the truth.” I said, “That’s a good problem to have. That’s a good problem for all preachers to have. That’s why I could never be a politician,”‘ Mr Wright said in the interview.

Mr Obama went into damage-control mode after the video of the sermon went viral, and delivered a well-received speech on the racial state of America.

In the speech, called ‘A More Perfect Union’, Mr Obama criticized the political views of Mr Wright but tried to balance his personal history with the man and his controversial thoughts.

‘I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy,’ Mr Obama said in the March speech.

‘I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community.’

The story is that Jeremiah Wright is on tape saying the Obama campaign offered him hush money.

You liberals better up your contributions; because your messiah almost certainly has a lot MORE people to bribe to stay quiet now.

For the record, Obama is VERY OFFICIALLY ON THE RECORD of having tried to put off people telling the truth until AFTER his re-election; just think of Russia.

Compare:

Obama: On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved but it’s important for him to give me space.

Medvedev: Yeah, I understand. I understand your message about space. Space for you…

Obama: This is my last election…After my election I have more flexibility.

Medvedev: I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.

‘And one of the first things Barack said was, “I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election,”‘ Mr Wright told Mr Klein.

‘He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, “I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.”‘

Obama offered Wright a bribe not to give him trouble until he got elected with troublesome facts; with Russia, he just offered to betray the United States of America to not give him trouble until after he was re-elected.

Barack Obama’s enemy is the truth.  He has spent his entire life fighting against it and he wants to spend the next four years destroying it altogether.

Obama believes he can weasel out of damned near ANYTHING with a speech, ’cause he can read a teleprompter like nobody.
