Clinton Scheme Blows Up: Barbara Reynolds Set Up Wright Press Club Appearance

May 3, 2008: Two interesting things about this posting.

The first is that while I posted it many days ago it has been the number one posting on this site every day.

The second is that it obviously attracted the attention of the Clinton attack machine who have tried to get me to allow comments that suggest that this entire story, which has done so much obvious damage to Obama, was actually a plot by Obama.

I almost let it go up as a comment until I heard the exact same words spoken by Clinton surrogates on TV. I concluded it was a plant and I rejected it. I also concluded that Errol Louis might have stumbled onto something important and that the thought of having the Clintons back in the White House is not nearly as appealing to me as it was a few months ago.


New York Daily News columnist Errol Louiswrites:

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright couldn’t have done more damage to Barack Obama’s campaign if he had tried. And you have to wonder if that’s just what one friend of Wright wanted.
Shortly before he rose to deliver his rambling, angry, sarcastic remarks at the National Press Club Monday, Wright sat next to, and chatted with, Barbara Reynolds.

A former editorial board member at USA Today, she runs something called Reynolds News Services and teaches ministry at the Howard University School of Divinity. (She is an ordained minister).

It also turns out that Reynolds – introduced Monday as a member of the National Press Club “who organized” the event – is an enthusiastic Hillary Clinton supporter. …

I don’t know if Reynolds’ eagerness to help Wright stage a disastrous news conference with the national media was a way of trying to help Clinton – my queries to Reynolds by phone and e-mail weren’t returned yesterday – but it’s safe to say she didn’t see any conflict between promoting Wright and supporting Clinton.

  1. Please this site is about saving the home of the millions who will lose them can you take the Politics stuff elsewhere please?

  2. It seems to me, you’re all either naive, or you just one to blame someone. When a Dem screws up, the only thing you say is “oh, he’s a Rep” This all crisis was initiated by Clinton and still continued by Bush, by not doing anything about it but, the Dems reaped more profits. Barney Frank (a Dem) and Harry Reid (a Dem) stealing millions from FNMA and on top of that FNMA and Freddie gave millions to Obama’s campaign. I’m neither a DEM nor a REP for this same reason, One always thinks their party is better. Ask yourselves one question? Does it matter to you personally who is in office? No matter who’s in office, they will lie, cheat, steal and until all of you political analysts wake up and smell the coffee you will continue on believing what ever they tell you. I am not saying not to have a party, if that’s you perogative, all I am saying is to read both sides of the story. Do you really believe Obama will change the country? How? A person that never held an important job before? Oprah was once asked if she would give him the job to run her company and do you know what she said, she avoided the question. I really hope for the country’s sake he does deliver. How is going backwards change? Isn’t all his cabinet members form Clinton’s days? This crisis is much bigger than real estate. How come no one is asking all these CEO’s that profited all this time while destroying an industry, to give back the money they pocketed? Instead, you’re paying for it. This has been boiling for decades and no matter what president we have, they will take the blame. Of course with the exception of the DEM’s, they would never do anything wrong or at least that’s how the media sees it. To all of you political analysts, do you know anything about Obama? or do you just hate Bush? or did you just let the media decide for you? Do you know anything about the constitution? Is Mrs Obama really Mrs. Obama? All of you that are going through this process of home repossession, don’t get upset, turn negatives into positives, you have been given a chance to start all over again and as mush as you hate your current administration thank them instead. Because of this mess, you might have a better future, with no bills. Anyway go on and hate whomever you want, just ask yourself a question How does that affect me? Good luck

  3. Thank god this site has again revealed the truth…Hillary is a repub in demies cloths and her husband more than had his hand in this mortgage meltdown crises with the signing out of law….the GlassSteagall Act; a link has been provided and is a must read for all: The signing out of law of this bill set the preemptive economic stage for the events that are now playing out throughout the world in the mortgage industry and, in our once great country now, who said history does not repeat itself? The pen used by Clinton to sign this bill out of law was given by Bill Clinton to Sandy Weil, Citi Banks Chief who lobbied endlessly for decades to have the GlassSteagall Act abolished and has framed president Clintons pen and hung it on his infamous Wall of Shame oh, pardon me, I meant his infamous Wall of Fame! Sir Neil, thank you for knowing about the GM trolley Streetcar Conspiracy; this article is also necessary reading! Thank you Neil for providing the truth about the lies people are living, we applaud your courageous efforts and pray you continue with the outstanding work!

  4. Barbara Reynolds’ blog stated that her vote for Hillary in Maryland was her way of saying thank you. Somebody needs to report for what Barbara was thanking Hillary.

    Spike Lee speculated that Rev. Wright’s “building fund” may have been cashed up by Hillary’s campaign, half jokingly. It would be nice to see what the Clintons did for Barbara for her to thank her with her vote.

    Howard University should be ashamed to let Barbara teach journalism after what is sure to unfold as a breach of ethics.

  5. Thank you for this story.
    Obama is so much higher than Hillary on the totem pole. Will the mainstream public get some brains and figure this out? I know the education here in the US has been disgraceful, but people come on; see Clinton for who she really is, and stop responding to her negative campaigning. Rev. Wright is a piece of garbage whose ego is bruised because Barack Obama has made it as the favored democratic nominee despite Wright’s appalling behavior….and let’s not forget the ABC set up on that last ‘debate’. I still say Obama will win despite the low lives who are trying to destroy him.
    Again, thank you for this post.

  6. Thank you, so many had spectulated about how did Rev. Wright get invited to the National Press Club.

    Hillary Clinton is in bed with the North Carolina Republian Party that is running the Anti-Obama/Rev Wright commercial. Hillary is afterall a Goldwater Girl.

    The Clintons have learned since TX, when she goes negative, she wins more votes. No one can convince me that the PA debate by ABC network, Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulous, questions were handpicked by Hillary.

    The more negative she goes the more votes she gets. Too bad for Obama.

    Obama needs a third party to run Hillary lie about her trip to Bosnia. Its Sinbad, the comedian who broke the story about that 1996 Bosnia trip and not the CBS reporter, Sheryl Attkisson. Later Sheryl Attkisson, did a piece, exposing the lie.
