(Washington, D.C., December 23, 2013), After a federal judge’s scathing ruling against the NSA, Larry Klayman, former prosecutor for the U.S. Justice Department, founder of Freedom Watch and, most eminently, the man who put a stop to the NSA’s unconstitutional spy program, accepted an interview proposal from Don Lemon on CNN. Klayman’s appearance Tuesday night was preceded by a profile of him that included disparaging remarks from Bradley Blakeman, the lead-in to Lemon’s hit piece and someone Klayman was forced to sue for improperly using Freedom Watch’s name and forming another group not coincidentally named “Freedom’s Watch” – a front public interest group set up for Sheldon Adelson to run interference for George W. Bush and Petraeus during the Iraq war to try and sell the “surge.” Not surprisingly, the group shut down after Bush left office and Blakeman, while a self-proclaimed strategist for MSNBC and CNN, now works with Al Jazeera, the network born out of love and respect for Shariah Law which obtained and aired tapes from terrorists, including Osama Bin Laden, while protecting their whereabouts.
After the misleading introduction, Klayman naturally fired back at his antagonists saying, “I think it is important to note that you’re a big supporter of Obama . . . you have favored him in every respect. You have to try to do a hit piece to diminish a very important decision.” Don Lemon, while interjecting throughout the interview claiming that only he knows his political affiliation, shot his racist mouth off in October 2013: “I say the [Republican] party dominated by aging white Americans and some very vocal bigots, the Republican party no longer represents the changing demographics in this country . . . Republican Party, wake up before it is too late . . . Stop drinking the hater-aid,” Lemon concluded. “It is leaving a bad taste in your mouths and the majority of America is recoiling from your bad breath.” (http://www.mediaite.com/tv/cnns-don-lemon-warns-gop-stop-drinking-the-obama-hater-aid/)
Lemon threatened to turn Klayman’s microphone off and remove him from the television screen (and then did) when Klayman responded to the insidious attacks. Predictably, given his leftist, pro-Obama/Hillary Clinton leanings, Toobin chimed in calling Klayman a “lunatic,” belittled his intelligence, and then disrespected the court’s ruling by alleging that the “case is based on Larry Klayman’s tinfoil hat paranoia about the NSA being after him.” Interestingly, Toobin’s wife at one point held an executive position at Verizon, the company that was just enjoined by the court and successfully sued by Klayman. In fact, on June 10, 2013, Toobin wrote for The New Yorker: “These were legally authorized programs; in the case of Verizon’s Business’s phone records, Snowden certainly knew this, because he leaked the very court order that approved the continuation of the project. So he wasn’t blowing the whistle on anything illegal; he was exposing something that failed to meet his own standards of propriety.” (http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/comment/2013/06/edward-snowden-nsa-leaker-is-no-hero.html) Naturally, Toobin’s wife should have been pleased by his loyalty. Perhaps here Toobin attempted to make up for his disgrace after it was discovered he had an ongoing extra-marital affair with a colleague’s daughter. After she got pregnant, Toobin tried to bribe and extort her into having an abortion, and then refused to pay child support. (http://abovethelaw.com/2010/05/the-jeffrey-toobin-casey-greenfield-drama-rolls-on/) And, from a journalistic ethics standpoint, it is a serious violation for Toobin not to have disclosed that his wife had been an executive for Verizon and may still receive pension benefits and stock options from her position.
Klayman had this to say for CNN: “I am disappointed in CNN, which treated me with respect in the past. Don Lemon is a leftist hack. He not only has repeatedly attacked Republicans and conservatives, but has also played the race card on a number of occasions. He and his ultra-leftist colleague, Jeffrey Toobin, who had the high class to impregnate the daughter of CBS’s Jeff Greenfield and was alleged to have stolen classified documents when he worked fro Iran-Contra prosecutor Lawrence Walsh to write a tell-all book (http://dissenter.firedoglake.com/2013/08/20/jeffrey-toobin-preaches-on-sanctity-of-government-secrets-despite-once-stealing-classified-documents/), should also not be throwing stones. And his fellow proponent, Blakeman is clearly nothing more than an unethical sell-out who aids the Islamists at Al Jazeera. Their lack of journalistic ethics should be rewarded by CNN with their firing, just as Martin Bashir was recently fired by MSNBC. I find it outrageous that instead of celebrating a victory for the U.S. Constitution and the American people, Lemon and his hoodrats spent almost ten minutes trying to assassinate me personally, denied me freedom of speech by cutting my mic and removing me from the screen, and then instead of analyzing the case, they claim I made it all about me when the hit piece was indeed named ‘Who is Larry Klayman?’ Classic ultra-leftist deceit and dishonesty and CNN must now restore its image. It too, along with the public, was disgraced by Lemon and Toobin.
Thus far, I have not even received a public apology from CNN. This press release is being sent to CNN’s CEO, Jeff Zucker, with a respectful demand that he take appropriate action, as MSNBC was forced to do with Martin Bashir.”
