Before she became first Lady Michelle Obama was had a $317,000 job as Vice President of the University of Chicago Medical Center. At her job she helped to create a program where the uninsured get sent to a different hospital. Imagine that, while her husband was pushing universal healthcare Michelle was doing her utmost to make sure the poor didn’t come to her hospital.
It seems as if the FLOTUS got more than a salary for her work denying health care to the poor. According to The Amateur” author Edward Klein, Dr. Eric Whitaker vice president of the University of
Chicago Medical Center (and member of Obama’s inner
circle) was the person who sent the email to a member of the Trinity United Church of
Christ, offering Wright a bribe to just shut up.
On an appearance on Sean Hannity’s radio show on Monday, “The Amateur” author Edward Klein revealed the name of a close ally of President Barack Obama that his book alleges offered a $150,000 bribe to Rev. Jeremiah Wright to be quiet until after the 2008 election.
“Well, what happened is that after ABC’s Brian Ross broadcast the video tapes of the Rev. Wright ‘God damning America’ and slamming whites and slamming Jews and America, he was contacted by one of Obama’s closest personal friends — a guy who travels on Obama’s plane, who plays basketball with him, who goes on vacation with him,” Klein said. “His name is Dr. Eric Whitaker. Dr. Whitaker is the vice president of the University of Chicago Medical Center and he’s a member of Obama’s very tight inner circle. And he sent an email to a member of the Trinity United Church of Christ.”

When Wright refused Whitaker’s offer, Klein said Obama himself personally met with Wright, which supposedly took place after Obama’s March 18, 2008 “race speech,” confirmed by both Wright’s word and the U.S. Secret Service logs.
Klein also said Wright told him he “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having renounce his “Islamic background,” which Klein said he has on tape.
Don’t feel bad about Dr. Whitaker being outed, he was nicely rewarded for his attempted to convince Wright to shut up till after the election.
Whitaker, runs the Urban Health Initiative (UHI), at the University of Chicago Medical Center an initiative who coincidentally received a $5,900,000 grant of our money.
The UHI was one of only 26 programs — out of 3,000 applications — to receive a slice of the $1 billion in taxpayer money from the executive’s “We Can’t Wait” initiative, which is aimed at spurring job growth via executive action, reported Keith Koffler at White House Dossier.
HHS has denied any White House involvement in the decision, but the president will have a tough time feigning surprise given his deep ties to the UHI:
- Eric Whitaker runs the UHI, has known the president since his days at Harvard Law and occasionally vacations with the Obamas.
- Michelle Obama launched the UHI while working as an executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center, which runs the program.
- Valerie Jarrett, the president’s senior adviser, was the chairman of the University of Chicago Medical Center board of trustees until she resigned her post to join the White House.
- David Axelrod, now-communications director for the Obama campaign, provided public relations services to the UHI after Michelle Obama recommended that he be hired in 2006.
Yesterday President Obama called for more regulation of “Wall Street” because of the JP Morgan bad deal which lost $2 billion so far with another billion on the way. JP Morgan which has over $2 trillion in assets can handle the loss.
Barack Obama has added over $5 trillion to the deficit and continues to enrich his buddies like Dr. Whitaker. Allow me to ask this question, who needs additional regulation, the banks, or the President?
