The REAL story is who suppressed it… and why. How are we supposed to trust these people with anything?
Do you think Obama could EVER have been elected if the Clintons had access to this photo? And that was exactly the point.
Certain people didn’t WANT us to know this little detail about Obama’s past.
He was friendly with this guy:
Louis Farrakhan. He’s a guy who — in this clip — called for 10,000 men to ‘rise up and kill those who kill us’.
(Context: claiming white people are a 400 year old enemy, and police are routinely and deliberately murdering black people.)
The photo was taken in 2005. But it was suppressed — for years –because someone thought it would be damaging to Obama. The photo is featured in the following clip.
Have you guessed who yet? Maybe if you knew where the photo was taken:
A journalist announced last week that he will publish a photograph of then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama (D) and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan that he took in 2005 at a Congressional Black Caucus meeting, but did not make public because he believed it would have “made a difference” to Obama’s political future. The photographer, Askia Muhammad, told the Trice Edney News Wire that he “gave the picture up at the time and basically swore secrecy.”
…But the photographer knew this photo could be political liability for Obama. So he hid it. The motivation “I need to help Obama stay electable” overrode the motivation, “I have a duty to show the public photographs of things that happened.” A few years later, in the Democratic primary, Farrakhan endorsed Obama and Hillary Clinton attempted to turn it into an issue. Obama acted like he would never have anything to do with the leader of the Nation of Islam. “I obviously can’t censor him, but it is not support that I sought,” Obama said. “And we’re not doing anything, I assure you, formally or informally with Minister Farrakhan.”

That was a lie.
Muhammad told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that the same day he snapped the photo, the CBC contacted him.
“A staff member from the black caucus called me and said ‘we have to have the picture back,’ and I was kind of taken aback. And we talked a couple of times on the phone after that, and I said ‘Okay, I will give the picture back to Minister Farrakhan’s chief of staff,’” he said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
He added that after he gave the original copy to Farrakhan’s staff, he kept his own copy but remained quiet.
“I gave the original disk to him and in a sense swore myself to secrecy because I had quietly made a copy for myself,” Muhammad said. “It’s my picture, it’s my art, and it’s my intellectual property. I owned it and I wanted to keep it.”
The Congressional Black Caucus knew the truth, but they said nothing. Because they wanted to shield Obama from criticism.
One more reason to drain the swamp.
Obama’s attitude toward the police wasn’t so far removed from Farrakhan’s.
Obama’s hostility toward Israel and Netanyahu would have put a smile on Farrakhan’s face.
Much of his presidency was spent inflaming hurts and hostilities between black and white Americans.
Farrakhan would have loved this guy.
And if we had known this fact about him, US history might well have taken a very different direction. But now we’ll never know.
Because both a ‘Journalist’ and our own elected officials didn’t think the electorate deserved to know the truth behind someone who was running to be President.

What Jim Acosta, Rachel Maddow and the Rest of The Media (D) STILL haven’t figured out yet is why we call them ‘Fake News’.
Let’s spell it out for them. In a shirt.
Because you know they won’t be able to figure it out on their own.
There’s a ladies’ version…
And a men’s version…
The problem isn’t just the lies they tell…
It’s the truth they DON’T tell…
And the opinions laced right through them.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
