If you have ever been to a magic show or stunt show, quite often they will ask for a volunteer. The volunteer dawns the stage and the performer amazes us all as the feat of daring-do plays out.

Shows demonstrating how magic tricks are done have aired on television many times, so it shouldn’t be a surprise to most of you that in many cases, these so called volunteers are plants. They are professionals, or at least practiced and paid individuals, hired to perform their part of the act. The plant gets presented as a volunteer to draw in the audience, but if one were to attend two acts of the same show, it would ruin the effect because that same volunteer will show up at both performances as well. Amazingly, that same person will be selected from a crowd of thousands because he or she did such a great job the first time.  Wink, wink.

henrietta_hughes_homelessObama wants to paint himself in a positive light, and we believe he attempted the following slight of hand. In what looks to be a foolish staged stunt, Henrietta Hughes, a woman from Florida that supposedly lives in her pickup truck with her son, was given an audience with Obama to beg for housing. Here is why we think she was a plant and this was all staged nonsense.

1. She is an elderly black woman. There are many more homeless whites that would love a home. Why would Obama choose her to line up for this event? Perhaps reverse racism? Who knows, but it appears that almost every major video we find like this involves an elderly black woman and Obama.  There were a couple of similar incidents during the Presidential campaign, one that occurred on 60 minutes.

2. Henrietta speaks much more clearly and dresses much better than any of the homeless we see in Boston. Maybe Obama put lipstick on the … before he dressed it up and put it in front of the camera?

3. The entire video looks like a complete setup. The woman was selected out of thousands to whine to Obama about her need for a home so another politician could immediately stand up and offer her one?

There are approximately 80000 homeless in the United States. That is likely a very low estimate.  Out of a huge audience, Obama chose a lovable character that just happened to look as far from a homeless person as possible and that looks more like someone with whom his grandmother attends church? Please.

All that aside, let’s assume Obama isn’t as disingenuous as we believe he is. Say he did actually go to the effort to find an actual homeless woman, dressed her up and told her to beg. It was still staged. Watching the video several times makes it hard to believe otherwise.

Now, how did it play out? The liberal media has Obama coming to the rescue of the woman by offering her a home. That is if you read the headlines. The headline on the HuffingtonPOst.com was “Henrietta Hughes Given Home After Telling Obama She Was Homeless”. The article only got two Diggs as one reader nearly immediately pointed out that it was a lie.

The implication of the headline and the misleading if not downright false article is Henrietta was gifted a house. In actuality, Henrietta was offered free rent until she could get back on her feet in a staged event to make Obama look like a demigod. Henrietta played her role well enough to get a few months of free rent.

“Basically, I offered Ms. Hughes and her son the opportunity to stay in my home rent free, for as long as they need to,” said Chene Thompson, wife of State Representative Nick Thompson. “I’m not a millionaire, I’m not rich, but this is what I can do for someone if they need it.”

To Clene Thompson we say…

There are tens of thousands of homeless that need assistance. Your reason for providing help to this specific woman is that you wanted the publicity and because of her appearance in the Presidential magic show with Obama.   Your stunt is obvious and your sorry act is as transparent as clean air.

The Obama performance will likely get nominated for a Tony, and the HuffingtonPost has once again published an amazingly transparent lie for the liberals to fall victim to like adoring children. It will be interesting what trick our magician Obama will pull out of his hat next, and what the next complete lie out of the Huff will be.

    Huffington Post is the liberal’s answer to Fox, they BOTH spew lies 24 hours a day. And I don’t watch or read either because I prefer to find REAL factual information.

  2. Mike John says:

    Watching ANY Obama event is like watching a WWE match. What is most amazing is that the media does not tell the entire truth about it. Just the fact that he is supposedly answering a reporter’s question… but his answer is seen by all pre-typed on the telepromptor in the back of the room tells the story! If this seems a bit like another demigod with media savvy, albeit with a small moustache, in the 1930’s, it should!

    Read much Keren? The woman was outed already. She was a fraud. Obama lied. The site was 100% correct weeks ago, and you are just dealing with your disbelief in Obama’s lies now? Timing is everything love. Suggest you keep up.

  5. It may not look like it now and it may not look it for several months, but that speech not only cinched the nomination for Obama, he will be the next President of the United States. And I guarantee you the campaign season will get uglier and it’ll look like he won’t even get the nomination, but my intuition tells me, he will. I do not envy the task he has ahead of him. He’ll have a monumental task to clean up the colossal fucked up mess Bush and Cheney created. And he’s going to need our help to do it.

    This latest conspiracy theory is another in the continuing saga which leads your own party members to say that the leadership is inconsequential. More time spent supposing and no time spent finding answers. Each day you bring Mitch McConnell’s prediction closer; the GOP is becoming a permanent minority.

    @fiona – We all had less than a day to read and digest the bill before Pelosi forced the vote. She had a plane to Italy to catch and a Papal reaming to attend.

    Hi James…

    I always love to see illiberates (liberal illiterates post here) because it is so much fun to talk with you guys and I love this site for calling it how it really is.

    Now, let’s see if I understand your argument.

    1. You say that the article attacks Henrietta, but nowhere does it ever say anything negative about her. It does say she was a plant, which is more of a reflection on how sad Obama’s promotional campaign has gotten than about her.

    2. You totally missed the entire point of the article? Let me summarize. HuffingtonPost lied.

    3. You make some odd correlation in your mind between black people and children in third world nations.? Is that where you believe the black people and little martians live too?

    The article was an attack on the Huff for a blatant lie, not an attack on Henrietta,although with recent discoveries coming to light about her, I wouldn’t be surprised to find there are some that question her veracity as well.

  12. Shebeezies says:

    Good grief. Talk about making huge leaps in logic — not to mention slander what with no proof what so ever.

    What’s really funny is your stereotypical view that all homeless people are illiterate white people. LOL. Too funny.

  13. James Wilson says:

    You think she was a plant ?

    Many thought G.W. Bush was smart too !

    I hope she sues you for spreading lies about her and buys a house with the settlement.

    You are really desperate to attack an old women.

    Whats next attacking children in 3rd world countries ?

  14. tryreading says:

    What amazes me is how big a lie this article on HuffingtonPost was, and the simpleton readers of the rag just don’t get it.

    They say she got a home and never mention once that it was just short term free rent, and from a Republican, not Obama at all.

    And the offer was so poor, Henrietta didn’t even accept the offer. How stupid are those that read the Huff. What truly homeless person would turn down free rent? The woman isn’t even homeless, she is just an actor.

    All the liberal lying outlets did the same. They called Bush a liar, but I find 30 distortions and lies a day on the HuffingtonPost, and the simpletons that read the rag don’t seem to mind the lies at all.

  15. magicnegrolover says:

    We all do need a magic negro and Obama is just that.

    The liberals that post here just don’t get how they are being played. They come in here and complain about the validity of the article when they read 20-30 lies and distortions a day on the HuffingtonPost and DIGG THEM? How could any one of them watch that joke of a video and believe it wasn’t completely staged?

    LOL.

    Not one of them even got the point of the article. Not one. OMG. So funny.

  16. Mike says:

    Your proof that this is a setup is based on,
    1. The lady is black.
    2 . The lady is well dressed and articulate
    3. In your opinion the video looks “like a complete setup”

    Wow, you convinced me. I almost fell for that landing on the moon thing too. Luckily there are websites like this to keep me from thinking rationally.
    (Insert sarcasm). PS: You guys are a hoot.

    @Making Rocket Science Out Of Stimulus: Valentine’s Day UPDATE | The Lie Politic – LAZY, LAZY , LAZY. I read it online. Have no idea if it was 1000 pages but what the heck did you pay those Congressmen for? If they did not read it, SHAME ON THEM. Every living soul in the rest of the world with internet connectivity made it their duty to read it while playing World of Warfare…so, if your Congressmen, who wrote it, did not READ it..vote for Lu Ming from China to represent you. For I am sure He read it!

    After all a 1000 pages is 250 pages a day for 4 days- or 25 pages for 40 days or 100 for 10 days- they had the time.

  19. fiona says:

    @Tim Slagle – When you lose YOUR house Tim, I guess you will lose your ability to speak American too? Which part of the country are you from? Because I have it on good authority from a man who was not HOMELESS but certainly did not speak as well as Mrs Hughes, that because he was trom Texas, he spoke TEXICAN!

  20. fiona says:

    @Scott – Just shows what a genius he is and why he will be able to manage the country- he THINKS ahead of the GAME.

    But really, I don’t believe it was staged. If it was, it WORKED. Find a working plan in 2012.

  21. fiona says:

    @Tim Slagle@tryreading – You are an American and therefore do not understand English nor semantics.

    The woman was given a house to live in rent free. That is the same as being given a home. A house is a home when people live in it. It is a house when it is empty.

    Secondly, since I read the whole thing…the Lady who offered the house/home did not SELL it, but offered it until the homeless lady got back on her feet. This was clear to everyone who read the Huffing ton Post Article, so what LIE are you on about?

    What I see in THIS article, is a sour grape approach to life. Obama got something good done, so it is staged…well, get to staging then.

  22. CVJ says:

    Wait am I missing some “facts” here? This article says it is a lie but all the facts are assumptions. A lady offers her free rent to which the “article” replies that they think she is just seeking a publicity opportunity?

    This article is 99 percent opinion what is missing are actual facts as to “where is the actual proof” this was staged.

  23. tryreading says:

    Originally Posted By Peter GozinyaNot one fact in the entire article. Really, you people that believe this sort of thing are the reason I quit the Republican party. Could you please link to a lie?

    Peter, Let me see if I understand your post.

    1. You think there are no facts in the article. Did you miss these?

    a. There are over 80000 homeless people in America.
    b. The video referenced, for you to view, is factual in its sheer existence.
    c. The headline quoted from the HuffingtonPost as a lie is a fact.

    2. You want a link to a lie, but the lie is the headline from the HuffingtonPost which is clearly called out. They said the woman was given a home. She was given free rent by an opportunistic politician, big big difference and a lie.

    3. You decided to give up on being a Republican because it required you be literate?

  24. Peter Gozinya says:

    Not one fact in the entire article. Really, you people that believe this sort of thing are the reason I quit the Republican party. Could you please link to a lie?

  25. Scott says:

    And this surprises who? I mean, c’mon! We all remember the campaign that included someone who was about to pass out at every stop. Each time, Barry had a bottle of water at the ready. This guy’s nothing but a stage production.

  26. [...] The bill, even in modified form, exceeds 1000 pages.  It was rushed through Congress giving nearly no Americans a chance to read it including our Congressmen. The referenced article is on its way to 2000 DIGGS!!  And all it does is speak the truth unlike HuffingtonPost.com’s many lies. [...]

     
  27. Brevard says:

    LOL nothing surprises me anymore… opera at it’s best… and the award goes to…

    What about the other homeless people? I live in Florida and see a lot of people in need of help. Where is everyone clamoring to help them? In our county there are a few out reach programs for homeless, mostly through churches. Politicians avoid it like the plague, unless staged of course.

  28. Tim Slagle says:

    “Henrietta speaks much more clearly and dresses much better than any of the homeless we see in Boston.”

    And that includes Obama’s Aunt Zeituni!
