Skip to comments.Leno: 'Very Dangerous to White House If Journalists Suddenly Start Asking Real Questions'
Posted on 11/30/2012 10:21:57 AM PST by Kenny
Jay Leno continued pressuring Barack Obama Thursday night.
During his opening monologue on NBC's Tonight Show, the host said, "This is very dangerous to the White House if journalists should suddenly start asking real questions (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
This week, CBS News became the first news organization besides Fox to ask President Obama Who changed the Benghazi talking points? Leno teased.
See, this is very dangerous to the White House if journalists should suddenly start asking real questions.
Indeed it is, Jay. Indeed it is.
Just imagine how dangerous it would have been to Obama if so-called "journalists" would have asked him real questions in 2007 when he first threw his hat into the ring.
Or in 2008. Or 2009. Et cetera. Et cetera.

The general population laughs about this as if it doesn’t matter. Yet by the time middle aged people are ready to retire or are in retirement, the country is going to be defaulting on Social Security, unable to pay Medicare and much, much poorer. All because of policies Obama either put in place or accelerated.
Leno has been pushing the envelope on his Obama “jokes” for the last several months now.
He seems to be bucking the Hollywood GroupThink.
How long until the boycotts begin?
I think Leno and several other “ultra rich” really thought Romney was going to win so they remained quiet and thought they would be fine with no tax increases but could pretend to be liberals then attack Romney for the next four years. Backfired I guess - now they are stuck with this corrupt administration and are going to pay through the nose.
Who woke him up?
Jay still kissed O’s butt on the Tonight Show.
A pang of conscience now is not enough.
Leno getting nervous about those tax hikes on the “rich”?
I’m surprised the audience didn’t boo him off the stage, in Looneyville out there on the Left Coast....
Leno, you were not brave enough to slam Obama the last four years.
What I want to know is when are all the Hollywood celebs who held massive fundraisers for the admitted foreign born unconstitutionally elected Kenyan going to hold fundraisers for the millions more who will be out of work in the next 4 years? But there’s probably as much chance of that happening as them holding a telethon for the victims of the hurricane in New York and New Jersey like they did for Haiti and New Orleans. Sorry people, Bush is not in office and they can’t use this tragedy to bash him. No telethon for you.
Yes, yours is the post I was looking for. Quite right.
In an age where Leno, Letterman, and the rest of the late night crowd are where people get their news, this ‘sect’ kept their yaps shut when it came to Obama, who the man was, and what he was up to.
Now, even before Obama’s second term, but after the election has guaranteed him one, Leno has a tinge of conscience?
Jay, too little, and possible too late for the nation.
Leno likes to pass himself off as a regular guy doing things in his spare time the middle-class guy would like to do. Too bad he left out the part where a middle-class guy would love to bitch slap him until he came to his senses on the issue of our national security, both external and INTERNAL.
Jay, you remained silent on your watch, as the enemy within gained control. And that may be your one lasting legacy, when no laughs are heard any longer.
Wasn’t Leno one of the “comics” who said, “there’s nothing funny about Obama”, “I can’t find anything to pick on him for”.
You got that right. Leno is a phony. Whenever I see him I miss Johnny Carson. Remember how Carson always promoted the careers of up and coming comics (including Jay Leno) by having them perform on the Tonight Show. Leno never has another comic on the show. It is all about Leno.
Next time he has David Gregory on the show he should ask him why they don’t ask serious questions about serious issue to this administration including the Preezy himself.
This is where elections in Europe have been for decades.
The #1 overriding issue to voters is “How do I maintain or increase my social benefits?”. Little else matters.
Could it be he sees him as a dictator and he is getting scared. Leno is in the thick of the Hollywood know. If he could only tell all that he knows.
When did he admit he was foreign born?
A day late and a dollar short there, Jay. But I’m sure you already know that.
Thank you all very much!!
Woo hoo!! And now less than $1.9k to go!! We can do this.
Let's put this baby to bed!!
Yea right jay..you voted for him..he is all yours
Then when he ran for Senator he promoted himself as being born in Kenya. Newspapers promoted him as being born in Kenya. Where did they get this? Did they just make it up out of thin air? No, they got it from him.
With all the media bias out there, why didn't they say "Romney was born in Mexico?" Because they know they couldn't get away with it. With Obama though, it's the truth. He is foreign born and not only admitted it, but promoted it.
And the Hawaii state registrar legally confirmed to AZ SOS Ken Bennett that Obama’s Hawaii birth certificate is not legally valid so Hawaii can’t verify any birth facts for Obama.
Did some research and found him identified as born in Hawaii before the evidence presented in this thread. Never believed he was born in Kenya. I just think he is a bad president.
Actually, Bennett recanted and said he believes Obama was born in Hawaii.
Leno’s made his big money clowning around and getting yuks. I don’t reckon he has any children; and he may be realizing he’s been clowning while Rome burns. Now, anything he says is a joke.
No, Leno and his wife have no kids, but his wife is a big-time abortion-rights advocate. Go figure THAT one out.
Now that the election is over, it’s safe to act like a contributing member of a free society.
>> a big-time abortion-rights advocate.
As in “pro-kill”.
In time the Media will turn on Obama—he has lost his Mojo. Without them—he is nothing.
It was worse than that. When they did open their mouths, it was to mock, ridicule and demean those whom did attempt to raise the questions or provide the information.
They would all smile, laugh, nod their heads sagely saying "ain't that the truth".
If you’re referencing their dismissive nature when it came to what others were saying, I agree.
Actually, Bennett never even read the law that governed what Onaka said. How Bennett chooses to understand Onaka’s communication makes no difference to what Onaka actually verified. What matters is the law that Onaka was required to follow. It says that if he CAN verify a submitted fact he has to. And Onaka did not verify ANY of the things that Bennett submitted: that Barack Hussein Obama II, male, was born on Aug 4, 1961 in Honolulu, HI on the island of Oahu to Stanley Ann Dunham and Barack Hussein Obama.
Besides the actual birth facts submitted, Onaka would not verify that the image posted on the White House website is a “true and accurate representation of the original record on file”. Later, for KS SOS Kris Kobach, Onaka would not verify that the “information contained in” the White House image “matches the information contained” in the original record. By Hawaii law, that has to mean that it isn’t/doesn’t.
The fact that Bennett IGNORED what Onaka actually verified can be attributed to the power of the media, which also chose to ignore the law that governed what Onaka put on that piece of paper and reported that Onaka had verified the exact OPPOSITE of what Onaka legally verified. As long as the media was going to lie about it and make Bennett look like a fool if he followed the truth, Bennett was going to follow the media’s lie rather than the truth. Kobach did the same thing - aided by the mob that threatened the family of the man contesting Obama’s eligibility, who then withdrew his objection and provided the excuse for Kobach to let the mob trump the rule of law. All these guys (all state SOS’s) were informed of HI’s law and what Onaka actually verified, by attorney Larry Klayman, before they approved Obama’s name on the state ballot.
And that’s where this whole country sits, in a nutshell. We’ve already got it legally confirmed that Obama has no legally-determined birth facts saying he was born in Hawaii and thus cannot (without a legal procedure to determine his true birth facts) qualify by Jan 20th as required by the 20th Amendment - indeed, never did qualify on Jan 20, 2009 as required and so has been an unConstitutional acting POTUS for the past 4 years - but because the media will lie about it and our “leaders” are all afraid of the media, and our courts say it’s nobody else’s business, we are hanging here in a lawless state of limbo.
And that should scare the crap out of EVERYBODY.
Please show the screencaps of the Wayback page pre-dating 2004 which shows a HI birth claimed.
They respect the opinions of celebrities too much. They probably just sat there in confusion, trying to figure out why one cool, famous guy was "hating on" the other one.
I should say that Bennett never read the law before he claimed that what he received from Onaka was good enough for him. In fact, while he was still trying to get a response from HI he publicly stated that Obama would go on the ballot as long as Onaka sent ANYTHING back. And that’s exactly what happened. Onaka sent back legal confirmation that the HI BC is not legally valid and HI can thus not verify any birth facts for Obama.... and Obama’s name still went on the ballot.
After that, Attorney Larry Klayman informed Bennett and all the other state SOS’s that Onaka had confirmed a legally non-valid record. And every one of them allowed Obama on the ballot anyway. The counsel for Nebraska SOS John Gale said that anything from the DNC would get somebody on the ballot - even if the DNC people were sitting in jail for submitting a fraudulent, perjurious OCON - because the law doesn’t state that the OCON has to be LAWFUL (non-fraudulent and non-perjurious).
IOW, unless the word “lawful” is used in every place that a document is mentioned in the law, fakes are permissible.
I should purposely speed, get pulled over, and present an obviously-fake “driver’s license” under the name of Mickey Mouse. And then use the legal logic of this state lawyer to say that since the law doesn’t say it has to be a LAWFUL driver’s license (I’ll have to check out if that is the case, and if the law says that a driver has to have a LAWFUL driver’s license with them when they drive), they have to act as though I am really Mickey Mouse. Of course, when they try to press charges for failure to pay a fine, it will be Mickey Mouse who has to appear in court, and they’ll have a hard time finding Mickey Mouse at the address on that driver’s license...
Might be better just to ask the police what would happen. See if they use the same legal interpretations as that state lawyer uses - and if not, why not.
The wayback link for the page you give would also be helpful, so we can all look it up as well. Thanks!
They're probably tourists, or at least out-of-towners.
So there! That PROVES it.
"He used Help a Reporter Out (HARO), a free service that puts sources in touch with reporters. Basically, a reporter sends a query, and a slew of people wanting to comment on the story email back."
Apparently as long as it is what the "reporter" wants to hear.. he publishes it without checking.
Someone said Bennett said one thing. I merely pointed out that he recanted.
I did not say that. Again, I just said he recanted.
Also, when an assertion of fact is made, definitive proof must be presented. It has not been.
Why isn’t it enough that Obama is a bad Prez?
OK let's assume he was born in Hawaii. Everything else about him is iffy, undocumentable, hidden. We don't even know if that's his real name.
He put it in print that he was born in Kenya, then in Hawaii in one hospital, then a different one. Neither claims him.
Maybe you believe he is telling you the truth, but what does that make you?
Either he's a "bad prez" because he's stupid, or because he's an enemy agent.
I believe I was the only person who mentioned Bennett, and only to say that Onaka confirmed to him that the HI BC is non-valid. Bennett’s own opinion is neither here nor there; what matters is what Onaka revealed in that legal document for Bennett: specifically that the HI BC is non-valid and so the State of Hawaii can’t verify ANY birth facts for Obama.
Which makes no sense if Obama was really born at Kapiolani as claimed on the document. So it is a HUGE leap of blind faith if ANYBODY believes that Obama really was born in Hawaii at this point, but especially for Bennett who was told point-blank that the State of Hawaii is legally prohibited from vouching for that claim. Personally it is a leap of faith. Legally and professionally, it is a violation of the Constitution’s Full Faith and Credit Clause. What documentation does Bennett have, to overrule the record of Hawaii?
What is undocumentable and hidden?
If you’re talking about the fact that I presented - that Onaka confirmed the non-validity of the HI BC (which you then proceeded to ignore, focusing on Bennett’s opinion instead of the legal document he received from Onaka) - that is documented at http://butterdezillion.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/complete-klayman-letter-to-bauer.pdf
If you look on the latest posts on my blog (by clicking on the last couple months on the right side-bar) you can see more.
If somebody doesn’t think the facts I stated were well-documented enough, I would hope they would ask me about it.
