Bill O’Reilly lies and misinformation, Snopes lies and misinformation, Carol Bengle Gilbert Obama supporter or paid Orwellian editor
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
“The past, he reflected, had not merely been altered, it had
actually been destroyed. For how could you establish, even
the most obvious fact when there existed no record outside
your own memory?”…George Orwell, “1984″
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it“…Joseph Goebbels
Why did Snopes.com state that Barack Obama, Sr. lived in Connecticut when there is no evidence to support his living there and no other source, including Wikipedia, corroborates it.
“As noted above, Barack Obama’s parents divorced when he was only two years old, and his father then moved thousands of miles away, from Hawaii to Connecticut”
Why did Carol Bengle Gilbert write the following and use Snopes.com as a source?
“A private investigator named Susan Daniels unleashed a firestorm when she and another unrelated private investigator made public allegations that President Obama appears to be using a fraudulent Social Security number.
Daniels told World News Daily she’s “staking [her] reputation on a conclusion that Obama’s use of this Social Security number is fraudulent.” The Social Security number is question has an 042 prefix indicating issuance in Connecticut.”
“But the telling evidence that this latest Birther claim is unreliable is the scant research about any connection between Obama and the state of Connecticut underlying it. To obtain a Social Security card with a Connecticut prefix, Obama would have used a Connecticut mailing address on his application. Daniels uncovered no connection between Obama and the state of Connecticut, telling World News Daily, “There is no family connection that would appear to explain the anomaly.”
What about Obama’s father, also named Barack Hussain Obama, who lived in Connecticut after divorcing Obama’s mother? That doesn’t count as a family connection?”
Is Carol Bengle Gilbert a rabid Obama supporter or one of the paid Orwellian Obama camp misinformation specialists?
From Oct 23, 2008 by Carol Bengle Gilbert.
“Kofi Annan’s philosophy seems to resonate with children who admire Barack Obama. My children, ages 9, 10 and 14, have always accompanied me to the polls as do the children of many other parents in my community. My 14-year-old, Andy, found out about the Leesburg rally and asked me to take him and a friend. This is the last presidential election before the boys will be old enough to vote, so it seemed especially fitting to make the trip. My daughters Cindy and Amy both admire Obama and wanted to come along.”
“I explained that I wasn’t sure how close we would get to Barack Obama because we would be in a huge crowd. In case we did get to talk to Obama, Jacob asked me to deliver a message:
“If you see Obama,” he said, “tell him two little boys really look up to him.”
Those two little boys are not alone. My daughters reported that several children at school were jealous that they were getting to go see Obama. On the way into the rally, a little girl no more than 3 smiled at me and
waved her American flag, shouting, “Obama, Obama.” She was one of many children attending the rally. What amazed me most was that even when the children couldn’t see Obama from their distant perches atop parental shoulders or their positions peering between adult bodies, they retained their interest in getting a glimpse of him.”
“On seeing the McCain signs outside mansions, Cindy observed, “These are all the rich people who support McCain. Most people are poor.””
” In Northern Virginia, it seems like there is little doubt Obama can — and will — win. As someone who once lived in Northern Virginia and felt disconnected from the conservative state politics playing out in Richmond, I suspect that a rally elsewhere in Virginia would have drawn a very different crowd with a less decisive pro-Obama feel. ”
It is clear what Carol Bengle Gilbert’s agenda is.
So, what is Bill O’Reilly’s motivation for lying to and misleading the American public?
The Citizen Wells blog has some astute and well informed commenters. From commenter Pat 1789, 2011/04/13 at 9:33 pm.
“ok they caught it at hannity’s forum. It was BS
Dear Bill Oreally when you went to Harvard how many Foreign students commuted to class from North East Conn. LMAO
Bill O’Reilly lied in spades tonight. He lied and he mislead with an answer to a write at the end of the show.
Email: ‘What about the Connecticut Social Security number?’
BOR response: Obama’s father lived and Connecticut and that explains it.
No, Mr. O’Reilly – now you are just making it up as you go along. You are as bad as CNN and NYT.
There is NO RECORD of Obama Senior EVER living in Connecticut. Except at – (cough, cough) Snopes – where the intellectuals on The View get their info….
‘…his father moving to Connecticut to continue his education….’
Really Snopes? Where did you get that? It is a lie!
“Barack Obama Sr. lived in Hawaii from 1959 until June 1962, when he moved to Massachusetts to attend Harvard University; nothing can be found in the public record that indicates Barack Obama Sr. ever had a Connecticut address.”
Obama Sr. traveled to Cambridge, Massachusetts where he began a graduate fellowship in economics at Harvard University and rented an apartment in a rooming house near Central Square in Cambridge.
Bill O’Reilly – just another talking another liar.”
From World Net Daily April 14, 2011.
“In an attempt to explain why Barack Obama, who lived in Hawaii as a teen, has a Social Security number that indicates he had a Connecticut address, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly asserted the president’s father lived in the state.
But there is no evidence that Barack Obama Sr., who left Hawaii in 1962 to study at Harvard in Massachusetts and then returned to his home country of Kenya, ever lived in Connecticut.
The controversy over Obama’s Social Security number traces back to a WND story May 11, 2010, reporting that two private investigators working independently were asking why Obama was using a number set aside for applicants in Connecticut while there is no record he ever had a mailing address in the state.”
“O’Reilly responded: “Obama’s father lived in Connecticut for several years, and sometimes the child gets the Social Security number based on the father’s address.””
“WND also reported on two separate articles published in June 1962, in the Honolulu Advertiser and the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, in which Obama Sr. stated he was leaving that month to travel to Cambridge, Mass., to begin graduate studies.”
“The story Obama told in his autobiography, “Dreams from My Father,” was that he saw his father only once after he left Hawaii to study at Harvard, during a return visit to Hawaii in 1971.”
