I figured I take a break from modern political threads and write about a very real conspiracy that most people have forgotten. It should have meant the end for KArl Rove and rocked the White House to the core, but instead, it essentially went un(der)reported and disappeared.

If you remember this it'll be a nice trip down memory lane; if you don't it'll be a big surprise.

What's wiki say?:



James Dale Guckert (born December 1, 1957) is a conservative columnist better known by the pseudonym Jeff Gannon. Between 2003 and 2005, he was given credentials as a White House reporter. He was eventually employed by the conservative website Talon News during the latter part of this period. Gannon first gained national attention during a presidential press conference on January 26, 2005, when he asked United States President George W. Bush a question that some in the press corps considered "so friendly it might have been planted."


en.wikipedia.org...

Ok, so basically a pretty pro-Bush reporter asks some softball questions, what's the big deal??

What if I told you that (again from wiki) :

Gannon came under public scrutiny for his lack of a journalistic background prior to his work with Talon[4][5] and his involvement with various homosexual escort service websites using the professional name "Bulldog."

And what if I told you that Gannon:



Gannon first attended a White House press conference on February 28, 2003, and there asked a question of then White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. At this time Gannon had never had an article published, and was not associated with any kind of news organization (Talon News had not yet been created[3]). However, Gannon states that he was editor of his high school student newspaper, as proof of having some journalistic experience.[9]


So, a gay prostitute, with NO media experience, under an assumed name, is given WH press credentials and asks a softball question of the President.

That's weird, right?

What f I then told you this about Gannon's "news orginisation" Talon news:



Talon News was a virtual organization (with no physical office or newsroom) owned by the Web site GOPUSA. Robert Eberle is the president and CEO of both GOPUSA and Talon News.


OK... getting even stranger...



Tell me more:



Democratic Representatives John Conyers of Michigan and Louise Slaughter of New York had submitted similar requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), on February 15, 2005. The Department of Homeland Security answered Slaughter's request with Secret Service records of Gannon's check in and out times at the White House.[31] The Secret Service Records appear to show that he checked in, but never checked out on many occasions, and visited the White House on several days during which no press conference or other press events were held.[32]


Oh btw, what was this question; was it really that softball and pro-Bush???

You tell me:



Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. (Senate Minority Leader) Harry Reid was talking about soup lines. And (Senator) Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet in the same breath they say that Social Security is rock solid and there's no crisis there. How are you going to work – you've said you are going to reach out to these people – how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?[4]


So, I think the answer is yes, that's a softball question.

Back to Gannon/Guckert, where'd he come from anyway?

Well, he was the President of his high school Republican club, but then disappeared (unless you were trying to hire a gay prostitute).

the next place he shows up is at the, "The Leadership Institute Broadcast School of Journalism":




According to its website, The Leadership Institute Broadcast School of Journalism is "[a]n intense two-day seminar ... designed to give aspiring journalists the skills necessary to bring balance to the media and succeed in this highly competitive field." It costs $50, for which attendees receive "two days of instruction, meals on Saturday and Sunday and all course materials," as well as free housing "on a first-come, first-served basis."


The school was set up and was run by Morton Blackwell:



Morton Blackwell is a former Reagan White House staffer, a lifelong Republican activist and a member of the executive committee of the Republican National Committee.



Guess who Blackwell's most famous student was... go on... Why it was Karl Rove.

So, let's get this straight:

A Republican gay prostitute, changes his name, attends a two day seminar run by Karl Rove's old mentor, then ends up in the White House on numerous occasions, with no press credentials, asking the President questions on live TV.

hmmm...


Finally, and this is the biggest "mystery" of all (and was a popular CT back in the day) is Jeff Gannon/James Guckert actually "Johnny Gosch," a boy kidnapped by a vast right-wing homosexual conspiracy? (The answer: very probably "no")

Yeah, I remember that, and thinking it should have been more of a scandal.

This part stands out:



The Secret Service Records appear to show that he checked in, but never checked out on many occasions, and visited the White House on several days during which no press conference or other press events were held.


"Slumber" parties in the Oval Office?

I know... it doesn't look great when a gay prostitute spends many late nights in the White House... It looks even worse when the government's main fake reporter is a male prostitute.

Someone obviously helped this guy get through the SS background checks, and gave him questions, and conspired to put him on the TV in front of millions....
