You know interest is heating up when you type “obama gay bath” into the Google search box, and it auto-completes “house chicago” for you. The story is circulating and probably the source of that nasty email I got yesterday. Someone sent me a contact email today asking about the story. Only it’s not breaking news, it’s recycled stuff from May of 2010.
This story seems to originate with a fellow named Wayne Madsen who publishes a subscription newsletter called the Wayne Masdsen Report (WMR), according to Rense.com (a site I’ve come across before when researching the really far-out anti-Obama stuff and one linked to by Larry Sinclair). I ran across Madsen as the source of the June 2008 story that unnamed Republican operatives went to Kenya and found Barack Obama’s birth certificate. That didn’t turn out to be true, but it was innovative for its time.
If you want to read the long-form version of the “obama gay bath house chicago” story (the rense.com version is excerpted), you can get it on the RENWL web site who posts it “FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY.” Here’s the wallet-sized version:
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago’s gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
Oh my, and now we know what those “pick up” basketball games were all about! The story says the truth will come out when tapes are played at the Blagojevich trial. Oh, that trial is over and nothing came out. It’s the usual speculation and “unnamed sources” crap you see in tabloids. There are no hard facts and nothing to lead one to believe any of it.
