Obama Tried Bribing Rev. Wright to Keep Quiet


jeremiah-wright1When sermons of Obama’s Chicago pastor, Jeremiah Wright, surfaced during the Iowa primaries, it threatened to derail Obama’s campaign. ABC aired one where Wright screamed, “God —- America!”Edward Klein interviewed Wright, who told him Obama’s team tried to buy his silence.

‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”

“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.

“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”

“He offered you money?”

“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”

“How much money did he offer you?”

“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.

“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”

“Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place. And I said, ‘You’re used to coming to my home, you’ve been here countless times, so what’s wrong with coming to my home?’ So we met in the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church, at South Pleasant Avenue right off 95th Street, just Barack and me. I don’t know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.

“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.’ 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.’

“And what did you say?” I asked. “I said, ‘I don’t see it that way. And anyway, how am I supposed to support my family?’ And he said, ‘Well, I wish you wouldn’t speak in public. The press is gonna eat you alive.’

“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.’

“And he said, ‘It’s going to get worse if you go out there and speak. It’s really going to get worse.’

“And he was so right.”

  1. You really do not know that it came from Mr. Obama and there are a ton of impassioned people running around who would do whatever they could do to get Mr. Obama elected. I think if you do not have evidence that this came from our president, it is very disingenuous to even make a comment regarding it and insinuating that Obama himself offered money. I personally think that our president is way above that and I am clearly thinking that there are some unscrupulous people on the side of either party.

  2. Barack felt that indeed G-d should blank america but he shouldn’t have uttered that truth in public. Oh great!

  3. Beethoven’s friend, shame on you. Obama attended Wright’s church for 20 years. If he doesn’t believe what Wright vomits why did he continue? If I don’t like the speeches I go elsewhere. Someone would need to work very hard to prove to me that Obama disagrees with his longtime friend.

    Obama is not only the enemy of Israel and the Jews but of white people and America. Open your eyes and accept what they tell you not what you would like to believe.

  4. Alrightythen beethoven, enlighten us. What are the facts of the ‘whole story’?

    Please don’t water down or ignore the fact that he told the good Rev he was speaking the truth – which he obviously believes.

    ..we’re waiting.
