Postcards from Mexico...

Suppressing the postman by deleting Malia-in-Mexico story?

 By Judi McLeod  Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The Malia Obama in Mexico story and the WorldNetDaily Postman Allen Hulton scoop went ‘missing’ from the worldwide web on the same day.  The White House admitted asking websites who ran the Malia story to take it down.  The WND Postman story,  studiously ignored by the mainstream media and attacked by the pro-Obama camp—strides on long legs all over the Net.

Could there a connection other than coincidence about the attempt to suppress two stories on Monday, March 19?

Malia in Mexico was not news until the Earthquake hit, and even then had already fizzled out.  But according to Politico, “the White House has admitted to telling news agencies to pull stories on Malia Obama visiting Mexico for spring break.”

“Kristina Schake, Communications Director to the first Lady, emailed Dylan Byers:

From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest.  We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.” (The Blaze, March 20, 2012).

“The Blaze first noticed the disappearing stories Monday afternoon, when accounts of Malia and 12 friends visiting Oaxaca with 25 Secret Service agents mysteriously began turning into broken links.

“However, in admitting to “reminding outlets” about not reporting on the Obama children where there is “no vital news interest”, the White House has also tacitly admitted that Malia is (or now maybe was) in Mexico for spring break.  Additional evidence has surfaced confirming that.  One site has published a photo of the Obamas going to church on Sunday.  It notes that Malia is absent, and says that’s due to the Mexico trip.”

Malia being in Mexico was a non-story from the get-go;  the deliberate removal of the story from the Internet became the bigger story.  It would be safe to say that most Americans are worried about Mexico in their country by virtue of the huge number of illegal aliens crossing America’s borders than they were about the 13-year-old Obama daughter being there with the babysitting duty of 25 Secret Service agents.

No one tried to call Social Services about the Obamas letting their tween travel to Mexico and few citizens cared.

Could it be that savvy conservative websites and blogs knew that at any given moment, the Obama regime could always have responded to any criticism that Malia had a chaperone in one of the Obama family members or family friends, making them look stupid for getting their undies in a twist?

There are many more compelling “Home Alone in Mexico”-type stories.

The pulled Malia-in-Mexico story and the WND story posting of the postman to whom Obama declared he would someday be president happened on the same day.

Was the White House resorting to diversionary distraction tactics with the Malia-in-Mexico-gone-from-the-Net story?

Was the White House trying to drive attention away from Jerome R. Corsi’s Postman: Ayers Family Put ‘Foreigner’ Obama Through School scoop?

It wouldn’t be the first time.  The Obama kills Osama story hit the headlines only days before the release of Corsi’s book Where’s the Birth Certificate?: The Case that Barack Obama is not Eligible to be President, back last April.

For doubters both ordered and otherwise:  that WND’s Postman story has legs originates from tangible proof.

“At one point today, the Web information company Alexa ranked the story as the fifth hottest page on the Internet.” (WorldNetDaily, March 20, 2012).

“Though Media Matters and other pro-Obama outlets such as the Democratic Underground are reacting in full mock-and-ridicule mode, to WND’s report today—featuring video of a retired Illinois postman who claims former terrorist Bill Ayers’ parents told him they were financially supporting “foreign student” Barack Obama through Harvard—is one of the hottest, most-read stories in the world.”

The White House-ordered deleted Malia-in-Mexico story did not meet the same fate.

Given the unstoppable trajectory of the WND story on postman Allen Hulton, could it be that the White House is losing ground on dominating Internet news?

Just asking, Barack.
