·        Editor’s Note:  Any attempt to intimidate a journalist into silence – no matter how veiled it may be - is a form of censorship. That’s why Bob Woodward’s exposure story is so important. Woodward and Carl Bernstein broke the Watergate story in the early 1970s that resulted in Richard Nixon’s downfall.
o   Bob-Woodward-Is-A-White-House-Appeaser    “Woodward should not be praised for standing up to the Obama White House’s alleged “threats.” Rather, he should be asked what he was doing for the last several years as Obama and his allies ruthlessly suppressed the truth about his Marxist background and agenda for America and the world.”
·        Gosar Speaks Out: Obama-Taking-Page-Out-Castro-Playbook  : The Obama White House firmly denies any involvement in the release of hundreds of detained illegal aliens, but U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz., told WND that’s preposterous and the move was done to inflict punishment for Obama not getting his way on sequestration.
