What was the cost to hide this photo of Farrakhan and Obama during the 2008 and 2012 election campaigns?
Obama paid 150K to vicious antisemite and America-hater Reverend Wright to stay quiet about their close relationship.
The LA Times refused to release the explosive dinner video of Obama with the mouthpiece for master terrorist Yasser Arafat, Rashid Khaldi.
And the Democrats are outraged over a payment to porny Daniels to stay quiet about a shtup? Puhleeeze.
The real news here is the left’s war on America and their coup on our freedoms.
Obama’s $150,000 ‘BRIBE’: His campaign team ‘paid Rev Wright to stay quiet during 2008 campaign’
The retired pastor, who came under fire after an old sermon where he said that the September 11 terrorist attacks were ‘America’s chickens coming home to roost’, said that he was offered $150,000 to stay silent until the election was over.
Journalist Edward Klein interviewed Mr Wright and included their conversation in his new book, The Amateur.

‘After the media went ballistic on me, I received an email offering me money not to preach until the November presidential election,’ Mr Wright told the author, as relayed by The New York Post.
Mr Wright said that ‘one of Barack’s closest friends’ sent an email to a member of the church saying that he would pay $150,000 for the pastor to keep quiet for fear of saying something incendiary.
He said that following the incident, the then-candidate Mr Obama requested a private, secret meeting with the Reverend to make a personal plea.
Mr Wright said that, while he wasn’t sure whether or not Mr Obama was wearing a wire, they met and discussed their options.

‘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,”‘ Mr Wright told Mr Klein.
‘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.”‘

Mr Obama, who was in the midst of navigating the ensuing political storm that occurred after Rev. Wright’s comments went public, hoped to stem the tide by getting his long-time family friend to ease off until Election Day.
‘Barack said, “I’m sorry you don’t see it the way I do. Do you know what your problem is?” And I said, “No, what’s my problem?” And he said, 2You have to tell the truth.” I said, “That’s a good problem to have. That’s a good problem for all preachers to have. That’s why I could never be a politician,”‘ Mr Wright said in the interview.
Mr Obama went into damage-control mode after the video of the sermon went viral, and delivered a well-received speech on the racial state of America.
In the speech, called ‘A More Perfect Union’, Mr Obama criticized the political views of Mr Wright but tried to balance his personal history with the man and his controversial thoughts.
‘I have already condemned, in unequivocal terms, the statements of Reverend Wright that have caused such controversy,’ Mr Obama said in the March speech.
‘I can no more disown him than I can disown the black community.’
