Duck Dynasty: Phil Robertson and the Corporate Media

Duck Dynasty: The Media Controversy

Duck Dynasty: The Media Controversy

DUCK DYNASTY: REALLY, WHAT’S THIS ALL ABOUT?

Phil Robertson, one of the Duck guys from the relentlessly-promoted Duck Dynasty, has been kicked to the curb, purportedly over remarks he made in an interview conducted on his own time.

Now, the fight has escalated, with people who don’t know a duck call from a carburetor, encouraged to feel the outrage and join in the fun that can only be had by expressing that outrage in public.

But seriously: what is this all about?  Why has the Corporate Media chosen to shine it’s worldly spotlight of 24/7 coverage on this event?  There is always a reason.  What is that reason?  Is it because the media desperately wants the folks at home to have the truth?

Is it really about some guy in Louisiana who doesn’t think homosexuals are right with God?  Seriously, there’s a ten-ton truckload of those of a similar mind in Cajun country.

Maybe ten thousand truckloads.

John Edwards Affair: Obama’s New Friend is Fred Baron

New Obama Friend is Edwards’ Money Man
Also a Friend of John Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter

Fred Baron’s ties to the DNC run deep. With John Edwards exiting the race his former National Finance Chair in ’04 and ’08 has turned his attention to Barack Obama. With Baron’s admitting he paid money to Edwards’ ex-mistress to move across the country to have a baby, we wondered, does Obama need this type of “new friend”?

Baron has been seen hobnobbing with high-powered Dems in Denver during the DNC convention. According to the Dallas Morning News, Baron isn’t acting in any “official” capacity, only as a “helper” to Obama’s campaign.

DBKP looked into the kind of “help” Baron’s known for in the DNC and the “help” he’s recently admitted to the MSM: secret payments to John Edwards’ ex-mistress, Rielle Hunter.

According to author Lowell Ponte, Baron began “funding” candidates in 1996, contributing “soft money” to the Democratic party and candidates. Baron’s association with the Clintons in ’98 included a fundraiser that netted a cool $500,000. A few days later Bill Clinton was a guest at Baron’s Aspen, Colorado, home. The Dallas, TX based Baron was equally busy in the state of North Carolina helping John Edwards beat an incumbent for a seat in the Senate.

Baron was elected President of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America in 2000. According to Ponte, Baron, Baron’s wife Lisa Blue, and others linked to Baron’s former firm, Baron and Budd, donated nearly 2.5 million to Dem candidates and committees. Some speculate that Baron’s protege, John Edwards, a first time Senator with no prior public service, wound up on Al Gore’s VP short list in 2000 because of Baron.

Baron did not yet own the entire Senate, just the Democratic minority. But one member who had taken his money and done his bidding was Senator John Edwards, whom Baron had begun to see as the racehorse he could ride into the Oval Office of the White House. Edwards had even gone to the mat and successfully blocked a bill that would have impeded trial lawyer lawsuits against companies when people there were injured by a terrorist attack. Edwards has defended the trial lawyer ideal of allowing all lawsuits all of the time, without limit.

Baron and a cadre of other wealthy trial attorney friends backed Edwards’ 2004 bid for the President after internal polling in North Carolina predicted voters were unlikely to re-elect the first time Senator. Baron served as Edwards’ national campaign finance chairman, the same position he held in Edwards’ 2008 Presidential run. Baron was also named co-chair of Kerry-Edwards 04′ Victory Committee.

Baron’s “fundraising” role has been largely ignored by the MSM even after Baron admitted he had been secretly “supporting” John Edwards ex-mistress Rielle Hunter.

Edwards publicly admitted to an affair on ABC’s Nightline on August 8.

WOODRUFF: There are reports that you have tried to cover up. They call it alleged hush money. That there was money paid to try, to cover up this affair. Was there?

EDWARDS: Uh, this is what I can tell you. I’ve never paid a dime of money to any of the people that are involved. I’ve never asked anybody to pay a dime of money, never been told that any money’s been paid. Nothing has been done at my request. So if the allegation is that somehow I participated in the payment of money — that is a lie. An absolute lie, which is typical of these types of publications.

WOODRUFF: I do need to tell you though through ABC investigation there has been evidence, or we’ve been told that there, about $15,000 a month has been paid to Miss Hunter, so that she could actually live out in California. In fact that money was from Fred Baron, who was your national finance chair. Is that correct?

EDWARDS: I don’t know. I told you just a moment ago, I know absolutely nothing about this.

WOODRUFF: You never even heard about that before?

EDWARDS: I’ve heard about it from reporters like you just in the last few days. It’s the first I hear anything about it.

On the same day that Edwards admitted his affair on ABC, the Dallas Morning News published Baron’s version of his involvement in Edwards’ affair. Baron claimed he had “helped” Edwards’ ex-mistress and John Edwards’ long time friend and former Director of Operations, Andrew Young, relocate to another “community” because the two who were being “hounded” by “tabloid reporters”. Young had claimed in December that he, not Edwards, was the father of the baby.

Baron claimed that he and Edwards had never spoken about the affair despite the almost decade long relationship between he and Edwards, the vast amount of money poured into Edwards’ campaign coffers by Baron, and the fact that Baron was currently serving as Edwards’ national campaign finance Chairman at the time of the affair.

The National Enquirer reported in December that the pregnant Hunter had been relocated to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to an upscale gated community known as Governor’s Club. Hunter was not only living less than five miles from Edwards’ campaign headquarters but also just a few blocks from Young and his wife and small children.

Baron claimed he had come to Young and Hunter’s rescue after the two were being hounded by “tabloid reporters”. It was later learned that Hunter, Young, and Young’s family moved to an expensive area in Santa Barbara, where they all lived together in the same home. Baron purportedly had “financed” the move. Hunter failed to put Young’s name on her daughter’s birth certificate.

Edwards was forced to admit to the affair after Enquirer reporters caught the ex-Senator sneaking out Hunter’s Beverly Hilton Hotel room on July 21 at 2:40 in the morning.

Baron later claimed he “helped” Young and Hunter move because Enquirer reporters had stalked Young’s children at their school and “photographed” them at a “playground”.

Young, who is on record contacting the local Sheriff’s office when Enquirer reporters showed up at his door in December, failed to contact the police when the tabloid reporters allegedly followed his children to their school and playground.

National Enquirer editor David Perel told DBKP that this incident “did not happen”, that the Enquirer was the “only one” on the story at that point. Perel said that “it makes no sense” regarding Baron’s accusation that Enquirer reporters followed Young’s children to their school and playground saying “why would we (Enquirer) want to photograph Young’s kids?”

But that may be the least of it all.

John Edwards Affair: Interview With David Perel, Editor-In-Chief, National Enquirer

DBKP Exclusive!
An Inside Look at How the National Enquirer
Scooped the Mainstream Media

In the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter Investigation

–Difficulties, as well as Disapproval and Dismissal by the MSM during the investigation.

National Enquirer

How did the supermarket checkout staple, The National Enquirer, scoop the combined forces of CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox News, Time Magazine, Newsweek, USA Today, New York Times and the rest of the mainstream press in the John Edwards-Rielle Hunter Love Child affair?

Inquiring minds want to know.

After an hour-long interview with David Perel, Editor-in-Chief of the National Enquirer, we can now say with certainty: it was easy. The steadfast “cone of silence” placed on the story by the Mainstream Media made it easy for anyone willing to do the legwork to grab the story from a decidedly-uninterested “respectable” press.

Perel, who was promoted to Editor-in-Chief of the Enquirer in 2005, has overseen the John Edwards Scandal investigation from the very start and provided DBKP with some interesting insights on Edwards, the Love Child Scandal and the Mainstream Media.

Mondoreb: Hi David, congratulations on the National Enquirer’s scoop of the mainstream press–again.

David Perel: Thank you. It was nice to finally have the “smoking gun”.

Mondo: This story has been on-going over the last–what–ten months?

DP: Yes, something like that. Certainly, it’s taken some time.

Mondo: Do you feel vindicated by the latest turn of events in the John Edwards Love Child Story–after the Enquirer’s reporters cornered Edwards in the Beverly Hilton?

DP: Absolutely. We’d gotten information and tips that Edwards was seeing Rielle Hunter and the baby. On Monday, we got some good intel that there was going to be a meeting at the Beverly Hilton hotel and we got the information in time to get everyone in place when it happened. We had a big team on it.

ALSO at DBKP.com:
* Over 35 stories on the John Edwards Love Child Scandal, from the beginning.

Mondo: I seem to remember that back in December, when the Enquirer broke the second installment of the Edwards scandal, that you had seven reporters working on the story then. How many did you have at the Beverly Hilton this time?

DP: There were seven on this story, also.

[NOTE: Presumably, they were all in optimum positions, as Edwards ran into not only two Enquirer reporters trying to make his escape from the hotel, but at least one Enquirer photographer, as well.]

Mondo: It’s been over ten months since the Enquirer broke the Edwards scandal; seven-plus months since the December story that named Rielle Hunter as the “other woman” and showed her visibly pregnant. What was the Enquirer doing in the last seven months that the major press organizations could have been doing, but didn’t, that allowed you scoop them?

DP: We stayed on the story. We did it the old-fashioned way, with lots of legwork. We did what the major news organizations used to do: we knocked on doors, ran down leads and talked to people.

Mondo: Why do you think the “major news organizations” didn’t do this?

Larry Sinclair Motions Rulings: TubesockTed, mzmolly 4; Sinclair 0

Gay On the Range

[Ed. Note: It appears that our tipster was wrong about the suit being dismissed. LATEST-Larry Sinclair has suffered some setbacks in the suit: which appears to still be alive–barely. He’s had 3 motions denied by the judge, while the anonymous posters had one motion granted. More at M&NS: Breaking! Breaking! Breaking!: JUDGE RULES IN SINCLAIR CASE.]

DBKP is hearing rumblings in the DC legal jungle that Obama accuser Larry Sinclair’s lawsuit against 3 anonymous posters at Democratic Underground may have been tossed by Judge Henry H. Kennedy.

A PR release from the Center for Law Forfeiture, the same outfit run by D.C. attorney Montgomery Blair Sibley, states this about the case:

“At the press conference, Larry will (i) reveal the corroborating evidence for his allegations regarding Obama, (ii) address the time-line of the response of the Obama campaign to his allegations and the murder of Donald Young, the openly gay choir director of Trinity United Church of
Christ, Obama’s now-former church and (iii) the significance of the refusal of U.S. District Court Judge Henry H. Kennedy, Jr. to allow Larry’s case to proceed.”

ALSO at DBKP.com:

Larry Sinclair stories: The DBKP Library of stories on Larry Sinclair, including his allegations of a sex-and-drugs party with Barack Obama in the back of a limo in Gurnee, IL in 1999, his later polygraph tests administered by whitehouse.com and his continuing story of filing lawsuits against Obama and online posters.

Part of the DBKP Political Scandals Library involving 2008 presidential candidates. Included are John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards.

The PR release also states that Larry Sinclair will “for the first time reveal corroborating evidence” on Sinclair’s claims that he and Obama engaged in sorid sex and illegal drugs back in 1999.

The release also claims that “despite death threats and an organized campaign to prevent him from speaking publicly” Sinclair will finally spill the beans.

We find these claims to be amusing as Sinclair has spent months on his website pleading for “donations” to help with his “legal”costs, published people’s identities and IP addresses, filed two federal lawsuits, given numerous radio interviews and written countless posts, and was able to rent a large room to give a press conference at the National Press Club.

We remain skeptical that Sinclair will finally put his money where his mouth has been all these months. The only thing we’ve invested in this whole sordid mess is time, while others have invested “donations” along with their “faith” in Larry and Larry’s accusations.

Two Obama Pix We Liked

A New Obama pic

If you’re not navigating on a regular basis to The People’s Cube, you’re missing out on some great fun.

A regular stop will yield MUCH good humor–especially if you’re a conservative-minded reader. Be sure and stop by The KG3 section, the creators of these two Barack Obama pix.

And just who are the KG3, comrade? According to info at the People’s Cube:

Who or what are The KG3? And why? Some say they are an ad hoc group of cagey party misfits “putting the toil in toilet humor.” Others suspect this troika was selected for its commitment to outstanding production. Do not be ridiculous. But perhaps the masses have the right to know why The KG3s efforts merit a separate category when they are not even children of elite Party members? Perhaps it is not wise to ask too many questions.

We’ll just leave it at that.

Be glad they’re on our side.

Larry Sinclair: Offers Banana Nutbread in Lieu of Obama Evidence

The Continuing Saga of a Man who Stretched his 15 Minutes of Fame into 4 months.

Larry Sinclair

Larry Sinclair, the one-man, lawsuit-filing, banana-nut-bread-baking, Obama-accusing, money-begging, blog-spawning, running-from-the-law intimidation machine has had his initial lawsuit (against Barack Obama for intimidation and other Legal Larryisms) dismissed by the courts.

When this FACT (which was linked to the original court documents) was recently reported by DBKP’s LBG, we were told (by a loyal Larry Legion enlistee) that our “information was obsolete”. Larry himself characterized our reporting as “misinformation”. Another Larrysuit was cited–there are several, including one against three anonymous posters who disagreed with Larry’s World outlook–as “proof” that Sinclair’s struggles against the Man continues.

We’re not sure how a lawsuit which names “TubeSockTedD”, “mzmolly” and “OWNINGLIARS” as the offending parties affects Larry’s Incredible Shrinking Credibility.

Larry Legal Lollapalooza continues. It’s the perfect cure for people who feel that their own lives lack drama.

As a scandal, the Obama-Sinclair story is fast sinking into the sunset; it’s sadly turned into something altogether different than the story we started covering in the beginning.

Originally, Larry brought forth accusations that he and Barack Obama were the members of an exclusive sex-and-drugs party in the back of Larry’s limo in 1999 in Gurnee, IL. DBKP has dutifully reported on the accusations, Sinclair’s subsequent flunking of a polygraph, and the many twists and turns in the story of a man who declares he is “interested in revealing the truth about Barack Obama”. Say what you will, Sinclair’s a public-minded individual, according to Larry.

Initially, we gave Sinclair and his claims a fair hearing. But, when someone brings serious accusations against a presidential candidate–and we can muster little enthusiasm for any of Obama’s stands on the issues–the burden of proof falls on the accuser. Sinclair, 4 months and counting after since the release of his YouTube video detailing his initial accusations, has come up empty in the Proof Department.

Larry Sinclair: Obama Accuser Attorney, Montgomery Sibley, Suspended by FL Bar

X Callyboy

Obama accuser Larry Sinclair’s “prominent” attorney, Montgomery Blair Sibley, has been suspended by the Florida State Bar for a period of three years. According to the web site, Overlawyered.com, Sibley’s suspension is also reciprocal in Washington, D.C..

Sibley has been representing the man who accused Senator Obama of nights of alleged illicit gay sex and illegal drug use in the back of a rented limo and a motel in Gurnee, Illinois in November of 1999.

ALSO at DBKP.com:
Larry Sinclair: DBKP LIBRARY of Stories and Videos
Over 25 Stories and videos chronicling the exploits of Larry Sinclair, the gay man who accused Barack Obama of what one pundit called a “coke-fueled sausagefest” in the back of a limo in 1999.
Part of the DBKP Political Scandals Library involving 2008 presidential candidates. Included are over 60 stories and videos on scandals involving John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards.

In an attempt to keep his accusations in the public eye, Larry “Litigious” Sinclair, filed a lawsuit back on February 11 accusing Senator Obama, David Axelrod, and the Democratic National Committee of “intimidation” and loss of Free Speech.

An excerpt from Sinclair’s lawsuit filed in the United States District Court, District of Minnesota:

“This action is being brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1981, 18 U.S.C. 241 and the First Amendment of the United States Constitutions right to Free Speech. Defendants have continued to conspire against the rights of citizens in that they are actively engaged in ongoing internet intimidation, claiming to be engaging in the conduction (sic) of illegal investigations into plaintiffs personal life, an actively involved in prevention of allegations brought of illegal drug use and sexual activity…”

Sinclair composed and filed the lawsuit at the Minneapolis District Court alleging Obama, Axelrod, and the DNC had conspired to intimidate thus impinging on Sinclair’s right to Free Speech.

An interesting accusation as Sinclair continues to post his allegations against Senator Obama on various websites. Sinclair has been interviewed by several talk radio shows plus has raised new allegations, that Senator Obama was involved in the murder of a gay choir director at Obama’s church, that Obama and Donald Young were lovers and that Sinclair has “proof”.

Much like the fictional character Forrest Gump, Sinclair claims to be a pivotal figure in the “dark” side of Obama’s life except Sinclair has failed to provide proof in any of his allegations, that back in 1999 while riding in a “rented” limo Sinclair secured an “introduction” to the then State Senator Obama. Who, according to Sinclair, was quick to procure crack and powdered cocaine for the two while they engaged in gay sex or that Sinclair had been “contacted” several times by the now slain Donald Young who allegedly spilled “secrets” about Obama’s “other” life and was “murdered” to keep quiet.

While Sinclair has produced “paperwork” which he claims “proves” his claims, they haven’t provided one scintilla of evidence that Senator Obama ever crossed paths with Sinclair. Since making his original accusation Sinclair has also failed to provide key information as to his veracity such as prior employment, stints in prison, former or current aliases, or outstanding warrants.

Anonymous Posters?

What Sinclair has shown is a proven proclivity for filing lawsuits as a second one was filed against three “anonymous” bloggers back in March. Sinclair, who claimed in his first lawsuit that Obama, Axelrod, and the DNC had intimidated Sinclair attempting to restrict his right to Free Speech, turned around and sued three anonymous bloggers on the site Democratic Underground for the sum of $3 million. Sinclair claims they “slandered” and “smeared” him.

From DBKP:

One would suppose when someone files a defamation of character lawsuit they will eventually have to prove they had a “character” to defame yet Larry has forged ahead with funds “donated” through paypal on his website.

According to the site, Big Head DC, Sinclair has filed a lawsuit against 3 anonymous posters on the site, Democratic Underground, seeking 3 million dollars in damages for defamation of character.

Sinclair claims the comments of the anonymous three, posted in a public forum regarding his “mental state” and “character” and their belief that Sinclair is lying about a supposed tryst back in 1999 with then State Representative Obama are grounds for Larry to sue.

Who are the three anonymous posters whom Sinclair has filed suit against?

TubeSockTedD, mzmolly and OWNINGLIARS, names which reminds us of Muppets from Sesame Street.

The lawsuit was filed with the help of Sinclair’s new attorney, one Montgomery Blair Sibley. OverLawyered.com found where Sibley was suspended by the Florida Bar for failure to pay child support and for filing “myriad court proceedings without merit.”

We’re not sure what the status of the Sinclair versus Obama case is. We’re also not sure what Sibley’s suspension means for the 2nd lawsuit against the three anonymous posters who, according to Sinclair, do not have the same rights to Free Speech as Sinclair enjoys.

Sinclair has used the internet to cast nasty allegations alleging Senator Obama joined in gay sex and illegal drugs but has failed to produce proof, instead engaging in lawsuits alleging intimidation funded by “donations” he’s raised on his websites. Yet Sinclair, through his myriad of blog postings, has never been shut down nor forced into hiding. Sinclair’s attorney has been suspended by the Florida bar for failure to pay child support and for interestingly enough, filing cases without merit.
