OBAMA TRIED TO BRIBE SESTAK WITH NAVY
© 2010 MilitaryCorruption.com
We can now confirm that Barak Hussein Obama, "commander-in-chief" of this nation's armed forces, tried to bribe a retired admiral to drop out of the Democratic senatorial primary in Pennsylvania in order to ensure the nomination of sitting U.S. Sen. Arlen Specter.
No, Obama didn't make the phone call himself. He's too slick for that. But we have learned that a high-ranking emissary from the White House, either Rahm Emmanuel, or one of his top staffers, offered Rep. Joe Sestak (D-Pa.) the job of Navy Secretary if the abrasive former flag officer would give up his campaign to be elected U.S. Senator from the Keystone State.
At work here, is Sestak's huge egomania. One of the most despised Navy admirals in modern history, Sestak's temper tantrums are legend, and the staff turnover in his congressional office, the frequent subject of water-cooler gossip on Capitol Hill. Apparently the highly-conceited congressman thinks he can still brutalize human beings, much as he did in the Navy. His primary claim to fame in those days was "sucking up" to both Bill and Hillary Clinton. Bombastic Joe would drop to his knees, from time-to-time, if he thought it would further his career.
Since even a stopped clock gives the correct time twice a day, we must grudgingly commend Sestak for not bending under intense pressure to "back off" or deny the bribe attempt was made. After all, if Obama threw the present Navy Secretary, Ray Mabus, "under the bus," and Sestak got the job, Joe could raise hell with his old enemy Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It was Mullen who fired Sestak (see "related stories box" below) on his first day as chief of naval operations. There is no love lost between those two. It would have been fun to watch Mullen and Sestak go for each other's throats.
Mabus, a Naval Academy graduate and former ambassador to Saudi Arabia, probably can be counted on to remain a loyal Democrat and not publicly complain about being tossed overboard by his "friend" Obama. But it might come as a shock to many of those who actually believed the community organizer's campaign slogans of "hope" and "real change" to see how quickly our "big grin" President reaches for the brass knuckles.
FORMER ADMIRAL CONFIRMS BRIBE ATTEMPT ON TELEVISION PROGRAM
Longtime Philadelphia television newsman Larry Kane deserves high praise for daring to ask Sestak the question that has been on mind of many insiders these past few weeks. On the Comcast Network's well-regarded program THE VOICE OF REASON, the conversation was fascinating.
(KANE) -- "Is it true you were offered a high-ranking job in the Obama Administration in a bid to get you to drop out of the primary against Arlen Specter?"
(SESTAK) -- "Yes."
(KANE) -- "Was it (the position) Secretary of the Navy?"
(SESTAK) -- "No comment."
Note the stubborn admiral didn't confirm, but also did not deny, that the offer was for the Navy Secretary post. Why? Because if he did, it would be a clear violation of federal law and mean possible prosecution for the person offering the inducement or the one accepting it.
18 US Code (sec. 211) -- BRIBERY, GRAFT, CONFLICT OF INTEREST
WHOSOEVER SOLICITS OR RECEIVES ANYTHING OF VALUE, IN CONSIDERATION OF THE PROMISE OF SUPPORT OR USE OF INFLUENCE IN OBTAINING FOR ANY PERSON ANY APPOINTMENT, OFFICE, OR PLACE IN THE UNITED STATES, SHALL BE FINED UNDER THIS TITLE, IMPRISONED NOT MORE THAN ONE YEAR, OR BOTH.
MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM PROTECTS IT'S SOURCES
Well, what makes you so sure that the offer of that particular job was actually made, you might ask? Sestak hasn't said what job it was. Ah, but the retired admiral has spoken with certain individuals in Philadelphia who talked to our sources, and the position they refer to is indeed Navy secretary.
We are not going to reveal our sources' identity, for obvious reasons, to the FBI or anyone else. But we do encourage Sestak, if he loses the Democratic primary, to come forward himself and fire a torpedo into what was billed as the "most ethical administration" in the nation's history. Such an act of courage might even topple Emmanuel himself, and help prevent another four years of the Obama-nation.
If Sestak did that, he will have accomplished more for this country than anything he did while riding high in the Navy during his salad years. And for that, we would gladly "salute" him.
