Revealed: Obama’s ‘Secret’ 2008 Meeting with Jeremiah Wright

Posted by on May 13, 2012 at 9:58 am

You know this nutcase Jeremiah Wright just won’t be able to keep his yap shut forever. Oh, the juicy goodies he’ll drop on Obama will be very interesting.

‘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 of Christ, 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.’

Gee, you think? Well, they succeeded in getting him to dummy up and his lapdog media dropped the subject or never even mentioned Wright. Mission accomplished.

    Wait — Wright was an acknowledged, high-ranking member of the Obama campaign. He was PART of the campaign. I do not believe Wright had to be offered cash to shut up; I think he’d have done it gladly to get his acolyte into the White House.
