Not Just ACORN: Obama's Own Campaign Accused of Election Fraud

Like a common thief who, when caught red-handed with his hand in the till, calls the cop who caught him a crook, Barack Obama's campaign has asked the Department of Justice to "look into whether any administration officials have worked in a joint effort with the McCain campaign and the RNC in legitimizing the allegations of vote fraud." We are somehow reminded of Boss Tweed's bullyboys and private police force roughing up any New Yorker who dared to point out that he had seen Tweed's partisans vote twice.

Below is an optical character recognition scan of the relevant portion of Obama campaign counsel Bob Bauer's letter to the Department of Justice. Not only is Bauer sufficiently audacious to assert, "These [vote fraud] allegations do not mean illegal voting. Nobody really expects thousands of Mickey Mouses or Tony Romos to show up at the poll to vote this fall." Sure, Bobby, and that guy who is concealing merchandise in his coat doesn't really intend to carry it out of the store without paying. Why register nonexistent people, dead people, and children to vote unless you plan to have them vote? What stops an ACORN worker from going to multiple polling places to vote under multiple ACORN-fabricated identities? Mickey Mouse might not get past the door, but that seven year-old girl whom ACORN registered as an adult just might.

Furthermore, Bobby, you should remember the old adage about coming into court with clean hands, and you sure don't want a court (or the Department of Justice) to take official notice of the highly credible allegations against Barack Obama's own campaign of outright election fraud.
    II. Current Bogus Claims of Vote Fraud and the McCain-Palin Campaign’s Attempts to Involve U.S. Attorneys and the Department of Justice.

    History is repeating itself. As Election Day approaches – just as in 2004 and 2006 – Republican Party officials and operatives nationwide, including the candidates themselves, are fomenting specious vote fraud allegations, and there are disturbing indications of official involvement or collusion. What we have seen, each step connecting to and reinforcing the other, are:

    A, High level party claims of ”fraud,” including those made by the Republican Presidential and Vice Presidential nominees – including the entirely unsupported assertion by John McCain to a national television audience that vote fraud threatened to tear at the very ”fabric of democracy;”’

    B. Republican party officials reinforcing and sensationalizing this message by repeating it at the state and local level and initiating actions in violation of the law to harass voters and impede their exercise of their rights;

    C. Republican officeholders calling on the Department of Justice to initiate investigations of these manufactured allegations of ”fraud” – including, remarkably, direct appeals to US Attorneys; and

    D. Emerging indications of official Departmental involvement or collusion, as leaks of an investigation have now begun in violation of Departmental policy,

    Of course, the timing of the opening of this investigation and leaking of this information is damning, 19 days before the general election – and less than 24 hours after the Republican Presidential nominee announced the advent of fraud so pervasive that it threatened the very ”fabric of democracy”...

    Voter registration impropriety does not constitute actual vote fraud. Indeed, despite strenuous effort there is not documented evidence of anything but isolated and sporadic instances of voter fraud. See Lipton, In 5-year Egort, Scant Evidence of Voter Fraud, New York Times, April 12, 2007.

    ’ Senator McCain’s running mate, Governor Sarah Palin, has taken up the claims in similarly hyperbolic and unsupportable forms: ”’In this election, it’s a choice between a candidate who won’t disavow a group committing voter fraud, and a leader who won’t tolerate voter fraud,’ Palin said.” Associated Press, October 16, 2008, available at http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqMSjQBGxUYE4A W6bbOHSUgHkKvipTJwD93RPSOGO.


Right, Bobby, "Voter registration impropriety does not constitute actual vote fraud," provided that Mickey Mouse, Dick Tracy, Mary Poppins, Jive Turkey, and perhaps a million more registrants with less prominent names are purged from the rolls before Election Day. As long as Obama wants to involve the Department of Justice in accusations that the Republicans are falsely accusing his campaign of election fraud, let's add some Democrats--Hillary Clinton to be precise.

    Jill Derby, Chair Nevada State Democratic Party 1210 South Valley View Road Suite 114 Las Vegas, NV 89102

    Dear Chair Derby:
    I write on behalf of Hillary Clinton for President (”the Committee”) in regard to the January 19, 2008 Nevada Democ-ratic Caucus. The Committee is aware of a letter addressed to you today from the Obama for America campaign requesting an inquiry into the conduct of the caucuses. The Committee shares the Obama campaign’s concern that full participation in the democratic process may have been compromised by the substantial number of irregularities occurring at the caucuses, and we fully support a complete inquiry by the Nevada State Democratic Party (the ”Party”) into all caucus improprieties.

    This letter is not intended as a response to the Obama campaign’s letter. However, in the interest of a complete record, and in contrast to the alleged minor procedural problems noted by the Obama campaign, the Committee wishes to bring to your attention information we have received evidencing a premeditated and predesigned plan by the Obama campaign to engage in systematic corruption of the Party’s caucus procedures. Compounding this blatant distortion of the caucus rules was an egregious effort by the Obama campaign to manipulate the voter registration process in its own favor, thereby disenfranchising countless voters. Finally, the Committee has received a vast number of reliable reports of voter suppression and intimidation by the Obama campaign or its allies.

    The Committee had 30 phone lines on Saturday to receive calls in its Las Vegas offices. These lines rang continuously from early morning until well after the caucuses concluded with reports from people who were victimized and who observed irregularities. The phone lines were so over-whelmed that many callers resorted to calling individual Committee staff cell phones to report that they could not get through. The Committee also received many similar calls at its national headquarters.

    The Committee is confident that any investigation into the conduct of the caucuses will be thorough, fair and in the interest of insuring that future Party caucuses will be as open and democratic as possible.

    Systematic Corruption of the Party’s Caucus Procedures
    The Committee received substantially similar reports of improprieties of such a number as to leave no conclusion but that the Obama campaign and its allies and supporters engaged in a planned effort to subvert the Party’s caucus procedures to its advantage. For example:

    þ Preference cards were premarked for Obama.

    þ Clinton supporters were denied preference cards on the basis that none were left, while Obama supporters at the same caucus sites were given preference cards.

    þ Caucus chairs obviously supporting Obama:
    o Deliberately miscounted votes to favor Senator Obama.
    o Deliberately counted unregistered persons as Obama votes.
    o Deliberately counted young children as Obama votes.

    o Refused to accept preference cards from Clinton supporters who were at the caucus site by noon on the ground that the cards were not filled out fast enough.
    o Told Clinton supporters to leave prior to electing delegates.

    þ Clinton supporters who arrived late were turned away from the caucus, while late Obama supporters were admitted to the caucus.

    Manipulation of the Voter Registration Process
    Numerous reports received by the Committee demonstrate a concerted effort on the part of the Obama campaign and its supporters to prevent eligible voters supporting a candidate other than Senator Obama from caucusing. The Obama supporters complained of were acting in positions of authority at the caucus sites. Some of these reports are as follows:

    þ Obama supporters wrongly informed Clinton supporters that they were not allowed to participate in the caucus if their names were not on the voter rolls. However, Obama supporters whose names did not appear on the voter rolls were permitted to register at the caucus site.

    þ Obama supporters falsely informed Clinton supporters that no registration forms were available for them to register to vote at the caucus site.

    þ Obama supporters wrongly told Clinton supporters who were attempting to caucus at the wrong precinct that they could not caucus at that site, while simultaneously permitting Obama supporters at the wrong precinct to participate.

    þ Obama supporters were allowed to move to the front of the registration and sign-in line.

    Voter Suppression and Intimidation
    The Committee received a substantial number of disturbing reports from voters that they had been subject to harassment, intimidation or efforts to prevent them from voting. Some of the most egregious of these complaints are described below:

    þ Voters at at-large caucus sites were informed that those sites were for Obama supporters only.

    þ Clinton supporters at at-large caucus sites were told that their managers would be watching them while they caucused.

    þ Workers were informed that their supervisors kept lists of Clinton and Obama supporters, and were told that they could not caucus unless their name was on the list of Obama supporters.

    þ Many Clinton supporters were threatened with employment termination or other discipline if they caucused for Senator Clinton.

    þ Workers were required to sign a pledge card to support Obama if they wanted time off to participate in the caucus.
    þ Workers at one casino were offered a lavish lunch and permitted to attend and register to vote only if they agree to support Obama.

    The complaints summarized above represent only a small sample of the complaints received by the Committee. With respect to each of these complaints and many more, the Committee has the names and phone numbers of those reporting these incidents and the specific precinct numbers where the incidents occurred. Upon request the Committee will share these with the Party with appropriate safeguards to protect these individuals from reprisal. On the whole, these reports show a troubling effort by the Obama campaign and its allies and supporters to advance their own campaign at the expense of the right of all Nevada Democrats to participate in the democratic process in a free, fair and open manner.

    Senator Clinton and the Committee are wholly committed to ensuring that every eligible voter has his or her vote cast and counted. There is no place in the American electoral process for the types of voter suppression, intimidation and harassment systematically engaged in by the Obama campaign, its allies and supporters.
    Sincerely,
    /v
    Lyn Utrecht Counsel Hillary Clinton for President


We think this letter should join Mr. Baeur's letter at the Department of Justice just to make sure all the cards are on the table, and that the air is cleared thoroughly before November 4.

Obama Supporters Deserting over ACORN scandal: "Say it Ain't So, Barry."

Obama's FORMER supporters at My.BarackObama.com say "Obama let us down"

We have little doubt that the people who posted these entries will soon have their My.BarackObama.com accounts disabled by Obama's moderators (and at least one did), in which case we are delighted to welcome them to PUMA or the GOP, whichever they prefer. Since their pages will doubtlessly be taken down as well, we will include the Google caches for reference. What we are looking at is what organizational science calls "loss of commitment," and its result is total organizational disaster. The original "Say it ain't so" is, incidentally, from the 1919 Chicago "Black Sox" scandal.

ACORN
By Lindsay - Oct 9th, 2008 at 7:37 pm EDT

This ACORN stuff is really really bad. As a voter, I really need to know that Obama wasn't funding an organization that willingly engaged in voter fraud.

This could be a game changer for me.

OBAMA LIES ABOUT ACORN

This is what Obama said to ACORN, at a November, 2007 speech, according to Newsmax:

“I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.”

By Mark from Pittsburg, KS Yesterday at 1:44 am EDT (Updated Yesterday at 1:44 am EDT)
I have been a devoted supporter of Barack Obama since I saw him speak at the 2004 Democratic Convention, for which I was a delegate, but I am very disappointed by the campaign's response thus far. If Barack does not strongly denounce some of the tactics of ACORN, and call for an IMMEDIATE investigation, I fear that voters (many of whom are already angry at all politicians) will lose faith in Barack. Given that such faith in Senator Obama is crucial to his "brand," this could represent a serious threat to our campaign. I must confess that this episode represents the first time my faith in Barack has been tested. Such faith of Americans in Barack is not only crucial to the campaign, but also in any hopes we have for his successful presidency.

Sincerely,
Mark Peterson

By First Name from Avondale, AZ Yesterday at 9:53 pm EDT (Updated Yesterday at 9:53 pm EDT)
His ties to the pastor who said those awful things about America, his connection to a terrorist who bombed the Pentagon, now Acorn is registering people to vote who don't exist. Does this sound like a president to you? I'm really worried about America's future.

I think it is very important for Barack Obama to address this issue before it gets out-of-control. If Obama has paid them to register voters and if ACORN has been shown to do illegal things this could blow up in the campaigns face. I would strongly suggest that the campaign does not dodge this issue. If ACORN is doing illegal things, Obama should get out from underneath it.

There is so much talk within this campaign, by Biden, Obama and supporters, about the lies and comments coming from the McCain campaign regarding Ayres and Acorn. I have investigated both topics, and at this point have been unable to identify any lies out of the McCain camp. Indeed, there is a great deal of information tying Obama to Ayres, and to the corrupt company Acorn. Today the FBI announced raids on many Acorn offices - within Obama's target states. Since Obama has paid that company $800,000 to hire Acorn to register people in these same states, what are we to think about the connection between Obama and Acorn? What are we to think about the 'increases' in registration, when Directors of Elections in various states, and the FBI report hundreds of thousands false forms having been filed by Acorn (and they have been shown on the news).

We now have the problem of questioning 1) voter registration and actual voting in these states; 2) Obama's responses to criticism. And if we have to question all of that, then how can we take at face value anything this ticket says?

For my part, I feel very let down. I feel a total lack of trust in this team, and in what has been voiced in the various sound bites and rhetoric. Let's face it - it looks BAD that the company this campaign hired at a large sum of money (the same company Obama worked for over years, including doing their training), the same company that has been under investigation and lawsuits for over 10 years, is now under seige of the FBI for fraud. This looks bad, and frankly it smacks of desperation and a determination to do anything, no matter the cost, to get elected.

This is a campaign of change? From what? to What? This sounds like Chicago politics as usual.

Obama campaign - you have a real situation on your hands w/ this Acorn dilema. Who cares about Wright and Ayers, but FRAUD, this is huge. Your entire campaign has centered around trust and change and this could completely tarnish your reputation. You, Obama, need to get on TV RIGHT NOW and explain the situation. This cannot linger in hopes of it dying down and it needs to be addressed before the McCain camp attacks. I would suggest you telling the American people, that you are appalled and don't condone this activity and that you will put up you own money (personal or campaign) to ensure that no this situation is fixed. You must explain what is going on and separate yourself from this activity......NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Jennifer, let us introduce you to the underside of Obama's bus, where your MyBO account will soon go--but don't worry, you will find plenty of good company

I'm still undecided. I am very concerned about all the news about Ayers, Wright, Farakan, Rezko, ACORN, etc. Please convince me i have nothing to worry about.

In other words, "Say it ain't so, Barry."

BREAKING SCANDAL: Missouri Governor Accuses Obama of Conspiring to Violate Civil Rights

Please copy, paste, and circulate this press release from the Governor of Missouri.


Note the Web domain of the press release, governor.mo.gov. This is not "someone's blog," a "rumor," or a "smear." It is the official Web site of Missouri's state government. The Governor of Missouri says openly that Barack Obama conspired to misuse his state's law enforcement resources to "threaten and intimidate his critics."

We cannot overemphasize the gravity of Governor Blunt's accusation. While we are not attorneys and cannot give legal advice, "Conspiracy against rights" is a felony under the U.S. Code, Title 18 (Crimes). At present, Governor Blunt's allegation is exactly that, and Barack Obama, like everybody else, is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. On the other hand, the court of public opinion is entitled to render a verdict before Election Day, and the following accusation needs to be either disproven or confirmed to the public's satisfaction. We therefore encourage our readers to circulate Governor Blunt's press release, which appears below, as widely as possible.

Please copy, paste, and circulate the following press release from the Governor of Missouri.

    Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

    Gov. Blunt Statement on Obama Campaign’s Abusive Use of Missouri Law Enforcement

    JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Matt Blunt today issued the following statement on news reports that have exposed plans by U.S. Senator Barack Obama to use Missouri law enforcement to threaten and intimidate his critics.

    “St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch, St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, Jefferson County Sheriff Glenn Boyer, and Obama and the leader of his Missouri campaign Senator Claire McCaskill have attached the stench of police state tactics to the Obama-Biden campaign.

    “What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words, the party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.

    “This abuse of the law for intimidation insults the most sacred principles and ideals of Jefferson. I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights. The only conceivable purpose of Messrs. McCulloch, Obama and the others is to frighten people away from expressing themselves, to chill free and open debate, to suppress support and donations to conservative organizations targeted by this anti-civil rights, to strangle criticism of Mr. Obama, to suppress ads about his support of higher taxes, and to choke out criticism on television, radio, the Internet, blogs, e-mail and daily conversation about the election.

    “Barack Obama needs to grow up. Leftist blogs and others in the press constantly say false things about me and my family. Usually, we ignore false and scurrilous accusations because the purveyors have no credibility. When necessary, we refute them. Enlisting Missouri law enforcement to intimidate people and kill free debate is reminiscent of the Sedition Acts - not a free society.”

If this allegation is true, Barack Obama needs to do more than grow up. Governor Blunt said explicitly that "I can think of nothing more offensive to Jefferson’s thinking than using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights." The U.S. Code (Title 18, Crimes) has a specific name for this.

    TITLE 18 > PART I > CHAPTER 13 > § 241
    Prev | Next
    § 241. Conspiracy against rights

    If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

    If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

    They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.
The "going in disguise on the highway" part probably refers to two or more night riders in sheets and hoods threatening Black people--the same constituency whom the Anointed One claims to represent--with repercussions for voting, exercising their right to free speech, and so on. In fact, a related section of the U.S. Code is known as the Ku Klux Klan Act for this exact reason.

In addition,

    TITLE 42 > CHAPTER 21 > SUBCHAPTER I > § 1985
    Prev | Next
    § 1985. Conspiracy to interfere with civil rights

    (3) Depriving persons of rights or privileges
    If two or more persons in any State or Territory conspire or go in disguise on the highway or on the premises of another, for the purpose of depriving, either directly or indirectly, any person or class of persons of the equal protection of the laws, or of equal privileges and immunities under the laws; or for the purpose of preventing or hindering the constituted authorities of any State or Territory from giving or securing to all persons within such State or Territory the equal protection of the laws; or if two or more persons conspire to prevent by force, intimidation, or threat, any citizen who is lawfully entitled to vote, from giving his support or advocacy in a legal manner, toward or in favor of the election of any lawfully qualified person as an elector for President or Vice President, or as a Member of Congress of the United States; or to injure any citizen in person or property on account of such support or advocacy; in any case of conspiracy set forth in this section, if one or more persons engaged therein do, or cause to be done, any act in furtherance of the object of such conspiracy, whereby another is injured in his person or property, or deprived of having and exercising any right or privilege of a citizen of the United States, the party so injured or deprived may have an action for the recovery of damages occasioned by such injury or deprivation, against any one or more of the conspirators.
Governor Blunt's press release uses the specific words "using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights," "intimidation," and "silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment." We would like any attorneys who read this to weigh in on whether, assuming that Governor Blunt's allegations are proven, this constitutes a violation of the U.S. Code as shown above.

Meanwhile, if these allegations are indeed true, then Barack Obama can be compared legitimately to Adolf Hitler. Godwin's Law applies only when a comparison of a political opponent to Hitler or Nazis is a gross exaggeration, and "using the power of the state to deprive Americans of their civil rights" is exactly what Hitler and real Nazis once did to Germans.

Joe Biden: Barack Obama Lacks Judgment and Maturity

Barack Obama's own running mate, the one whose 25-plus years of legislative experience are supposed to offset the wetness behind Obama's ears, said in effect that Obama lacks the judgment and maturity necessary to make executive decisions. "I'm Joe Biden, and I Didn't Approve This Ad" reports,

    CBS' Katie Couric: "Are you disappointed with the tone of the campaign -- the lipstick on the pig stuff and some of the ads? And you guys haven't been completely guilt-free, making fun of John McCain's inability to use a computer?"

    Biden: "I thought that was terrible, by the way."

    Couric: "Why'd you do it then?"

    Biden: "I didn't know we did it, and if I'd had anything to do with it, we would have never done it
    .


Senator Biden is stating openly that his own running mate approved this campaign ad without consulting him and that, furthermore, the ad was terrible and that he would not have approved it. In other words, per Senator Biden, his own teammate blindsided and embarrassed him with an act of poor judgment. If Barack Obama lacks the judgment necessary to run a political campaign, how can he have the kind of judgment and maturity necessary to run a country?

Biden apparently realized that he said exactly that, because he then tries to excuse his running mate's actions.

    Couric: "Did Barack Obama approve that ad? He said he did, right?"

    Biden: "I don't think anything was intentional about that. They were trying to make another point."


Right: Barack Obama approved the ad, but it wasn't intentional. He wasn't responsible, it was above his pay grade, he voted "present," he was absent for the vote, he had no controlling authority, and the buck stops everywhere but his own desk. In contrast, every Naval officer knows he is responsible for EVERYTHING that happens on his watch. Therefore:

God damn BLESS American, McCain (Captain, USN, retired), 2008

"Churchgate:" Obama Misused Tax Exempt Church Resources for his Campaign

Barack Obama's campaign has made a point about not taking money from big donors, even though it has received six figure bundled contributions from "little, ordinary people" like Goldman Sachs, Lehman Broters, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Execlon, and Microsoft,* and even though Obama broke his pledge to accept Federal campaign financing and the accompanying spending limits. The Obama campaign's fundraising ethics also include illegal and possibly rigged lotteries like "Dinner with Barack;" the "Backstage with Barack" lottery was modified to allow entry without a donation under pressure from Minnesota and possibly other law enforcement agencies.

While Barack Obama is at least morally responsible for the behavior of his campaign staff--and he signed his name to at least one of the lottery solicitations even though, as an attorney, he ought to know at least something about lottery laws--he is directly and personally responsible for his deliberate, premeditated, and willful misuse of the United Church of Christ's tax exempt resources to support his campaign.

* The corporations do not donate the money themselves, they bundle donations from employees and others. This is legal.

The story begins in 2007, when the United Church of Christ (UCC) invited Barack Obama to its annual Synod in Hartford Connecticut. The church wanted Obama to talk about the role of religious faith in his career. As a tax exempt institution, the church made it explicitly clear to Obama and his staff that no election-related activity could take place at the event. Obama and his staff understood and agreed to this. As stated by ”IRS Investigation: A Test Of Church’s Faith?” by UCC minister Davida Foy Crabtree in the Hartford Courant

Our purpose in inviting Sen. Obama in the spring of 2006 — long before he was a candidate for the presidency — was to ask him to address the connection between his Christian faith and his public service, to speak to us of the challenges for people of faith in the public square today. And he did so with eloquence. As a prominent member of our church, his was a natural invitation, just as the others were. To avoid any hint of endorsement or promotion, our national officers and our denominational attorney established clear understandings with Sen. Obama’s office in Washington. He readily agreed to all of them. We made it clear not only to his campaign staff but also to our own synod delegates and visitors that no advocacy or promotion of his candidacy would be permitted.


So far, so good; the United Church of Christ did everything it should have done to comply with the conditions of its tax exemption. After he said he understood and agreed that no campaign-related activity could take place at the Synod, Barack Obama wrote (thus showing premeditation and malice aforethought, as opposed to blurting out campaign promises in the heat of the moment) "A Politics of Conscience."

It’s been several months now since I announced I was running for president. In that time, I’ve had the chance to talk with Americans all across this country. And I’ve found that no matter where I am, or who I’m talking to, there’s a common theme that emerges. It’s that folks are hungry for change – they’re hungry for something new. They’re ready to turn the page on the old politics and the old policies – whether it’s the war in Iraq or the health care crisis we’re in, or a school system that’s leaving too many kids behind despite the slogans.…
    Our conscience can’t rest so long as 37 million Americans are poor and forgotten by their leaders in Washington and by the media elites. We need to heed the biblical call to care for “the least of these” and lift the poor out of despair. That’s why I’ve been fighting to expand the Earned Income Tax Credit and the minimum wage. If you’re working forty hours a week, you shouldn’t be living in poverty. But we also know that government initiatives are not enough. Each of us in our own lives needs to do what we can to help the poor. And until we do, our conscience cannot rest.Our conscience cannot rest so long as nearly 45 million Americans don’t have health insurance and the millions more who do are going bankrupt trying to pay for it. I have made a solemn pledge that I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical family’s premiums by up to $2500 a year. That’s not simply a matter of policy or ideology – it’s a moral commitment. 


he fact that Obama said this after promising explicitly that no campaign-related activity would take place during his appearance at the United Church of Christ shows that he doesn’t have much of a conscience at all. His conduct reminds us of a caller to a talk radio show who, after indicating his understanding of Federal Communication Commission rules that ban profanity, spews a long series of F-bombs once he is on the air. There are enough callers whose lack of maturity makes this a real possibility that there is a delay of several seconds between the time a person speaks and when the words are broadcast, and this allows the radio station to cut the sound if the F word or similar profanity is present. The United Church of Christ obviously felt that similar conduct from a United States Senator would be so inconcievable that there were no provisions for cutting Obama’s microphone, and the UCC was wrong. Obama effectively F-bombed his own church, thus causing its officers considerable stress and worry about what the IRS would do as a result. The IRS apparently reached the same conclusion:

Senator Obama was invited to speak at the 2007 General Synod, in a non-candidate capacity, on how his personal faith intersected with his public life. You further established that the United Church of Christ had verbally communicated to those in attendance that Senator Obama was there as a member of the church and not as a candidate for office, that the audience should not attempt to engage in any political activities and that the church’s legal counsel had advised Senator Obama’s campaign of the ground rules for his speech.
    Also in response to the inquiry, you indicated that the United Church of Christ did not authorize or have any power to authorize campaign volunteers for Senator Obama to set up tables near the entrances of the Hartford Civic Center on Saturday, June 23, 2007, and that the activity was conducted on public property outside the control of the synod and therefore was not attributable to the church.
    You further advised that the United Church of Christ’s website provides a link to the IRS fact sheet on ”Election Year Activities and the Prohibition on Political Campaign Intervention for Section 501(c)(3) Organizations,” and that your Nationwide Special Counsel has advised leaders of the United Church of Christ of the publication of Revenue Ruling 2007-41, in June 2007.(OCR transcription of part of the IRS letter to the United Church of Christ, http://www.ucc.org/news/pdf/irsletter.pdf)


Barack Obama promises change, including change in the way he is going to fund his political campaign, but his acceptance of six figure bundled contributions and his broken promise to accept Federal campaign financing and matching limits is just more of the same old stuff. On the other hand, Obama has certainly delivered change in the use of innovative campaign financing methods such as illegal and possibly rigged lotteries, and the diversion of tax exempt church resources for self-serving purposes. We encourage our readers to circulate this "Churchgate" story as widely as possible so the starry-eyed idealists who still idolize this fraud, phony, and empty suit will realize that they are worshiping an individual with few ethics, few principles, and no character.Technorati Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

MoveOn.org: Jews Control "Racist" Fox News

The following was posted to MoveOn.org's now disgraced Action Forum, with the sanction of the moderators who exercised editorial control over the site. Perhaps this, and not MoveOn.org's false accusation of racism, is the organization's real problem with Fox News. (This is not the only posting to MoveOn.org's Action Forum that talked about Jewish control of the media.)

But I can see why you might think you OWN! the media,or are entitled to: 8 JEWS RUN U.S. MEDIA Today, eight Jewish Americans run the vast majority of US television networks, the printed press, the Hollywood movie industry, the book publishing industry, and the recording industry.

Most of these industries are bundled into huge media conglomerates run by the following eight individuals:
Gerald Levin, CEO and Director of AOL Time Warner
Michael Eisner, Chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company
Edgar Bronfman, Sr., Chairman of Seagram Company Ltd
Edgar Bronfman, Jr, President and CEO of Seagram Company Ltd and head of Universal Studios
Sumner Redstone, Chairman and CEO of Viacom, Inc
Dennis Dammerman, Vice Chairman of General Electric
Peter Chernin, President and Co-COO of News Corporation Limited
Fox News, which is of course owned by Rupert Murdock - also a jew.


Also from MoveOn.org's Action Forum, over which MoveOn.org exercised editorial control. This one garnered unanimous approval from the MoveOn community.

Another neo-con appeared today on C-Span to defend Bush and his spying program! I am Jewish and proud of it (despite everything) but I am sick of seeing those neo-cons posing as average joes on national television to defend Bush and his lies. Since they don't have the decency or honesty to identify themselves by saying: "But you know, I am a Zionist and may be biased" and since most Americans can't tell the difference and don't have the courage to ask, maybe they should be forced to wear an Israeli flag on the lapel of their jackets. Isn't it time to tell the American people the truth, i.e. that Jews control all the media.

8 of 8 MoveOn.org Action Forum participants AGREE that the Jews control all the media

Anti-Catholic Hate Group Accuses Fox News of Racism

MoveOn.org, whose endorsement Barack Obama solicited and accepted, recently posted a petition with the following content.

"FOX must stop injecting racism, prejudice, and fear into our political dialogue. We intend to hold FOX, its advertisers, and its personalities accountable for FOX's attempts to smear the Obamas."

This is quite an audacious and hypocritical statement from an anti-Catholic (and anti-Semitic) hate group whose now-disgraced Action Forum welcomed statements like "Catholic Pedophiles of America" and "The Catholics are raping your children" while publishing an official anti-Catholic hate cartoon that could have come directly from the pen of 19th century cartoonist Thomas Nast.






The following material appeared at MoveOn.org's now disgraced Action Forum, a discussion site over which MoveOn.org exercised editorial control. "Exercise of editorial control" makes MoveOn.org responsible, at least morally, for the content. The site allowed MoveOn's people to vote agreement or disagreement with the statements in question. Just as Barack Obama's church cheered Michael Pfleger's "There were a whole lot of white people crying," thus showing that Barack and Michelle Obama belong to a racist church, MoveOn's people gave overwhelming support to the anti-Catholic hate speech.

=====================

Nothing is being said about the five Catholic justices,three of whom would rewrite the constitution to destroy Church/State separation. They believe that God, the bible and faith supercede our Constitution, and that our leaders are acting with divine sanction. I know that Article VI states that religion shall not be a test for public office. It does not say, however, that the Senate can not question someone who hold beliefs that are in oppostion to the constitution, which all office holders must swear to uphold. The idea of a "Unitary Executive" has been praised by Alito. He clearly believes in a hierarchial concept of government, rather than one which comes from the governed. Why was this not highlighted by the Senate and the press?

By continuing the attack on the GOP's culture of corruption with a call to arrest the Catholic pedophiles of America, we have the ability to break up the perverts and criminals running the country today. WE know there are hundreds of thousands of pedophiles created by the Catholic church's shuffling them around since 1950. WE know most of these people went on to higher education. By pushing for a complete outing of the 12,000 pedophiles they've admitted to so far we can put incredible pressure on any politicians who might be part of the cult. How many DeLay types want their constituents to find out that they've taken advantage of the teenage sex trade of the Marianas islands? How many victims of these pedophiles are now working in our schools, boy scout camps, governments and police forces? How would this impact the secret societies like the Skull and Boners if half their membership were convicted for sex crimes involving their highest ranking members? There is a reason why our Government refused to prosecute these citizens for covering-up this scandal for over 50 years. .... Priests abuse citizens and don't get arrested. The citizens they molested go on to create more pedophiles, but they ain't priests, so they go to prison. As they should. But until the priests are hounded down and arrested like the baby rapers they are, the neverending cycle will continue. You want to throw a monkey wrench in both political parties? Call for the arrest and immediate incarceration of the Catholic Pedophiles of America. Then we can do a little research. These priests were teachers. Find out who their students were and do a cross reference to see how many elected leaders were "educated" by them. Records of arrests for pedophilia have been kept for years. Are the hotspots of pedophilia in areas where the priests were relocated to? Until our elected leaders pursue this matter we won't know if the people we entrust our children to are people we can trust, or people trying to lower the age of consent to birth.

...It never ends with the victim class because they only have to change the criteria to create another group to be persecuted. The vicitm class will expand until you too can be jailed for ridiculously minor offenses while the Catholics are raping your children.

94% voted to AGREE that the Catholics are raping your children.



Moveon.org won't start an impeachment petition, nor a drive for fair accurate voting. We will not have a fair vote count, and the Government Accounting Office says we didn't have one in 2004, 2000, 2002. And the Supreme Court is packed with Opus Dei Catholics who support a monarchy, placed in the White House their own man they put there by stopping authentic vote count or having a open hearing about vote fraud.

If the Catholics and Southern Baptists can gang up on the rest of America to further their plans for world domination. Then a group of highly trained espionage experts shouldn't have a problem organising the attacks of 9/11. The red flag that keeps bothering me is the fact that not one of the sycophants that stopped the information flow has been publicly fired or chastised. Their identities have been kept absolutely secret. Every investigation has come to the conclusion that certain individuals stopped the information flow. Arrest those individuals for incompetence that led to the deaths of 5000 Americans. It's either incompetance or collusion. By protecting the identities of these individuals BushCo will forever carry the blame for 9/11. When listening to Republicans always remember that their primary objective is to protect their upline. George liked the 2800 number when it came time to pay. But 5000 sounds a lot better when you are trying to justify torture.

This is the organization from which Barack Obama solicited and accepted an endorsement, and this is the organization that is now trying to smear Fox News as racist.

Anti-Semitic and Anti-Catholic MoveOn.org calls Fox News Racist

The following is quite a mouthful from an organization that welcomed the most vicious imaginable anti-Semitic, anti-Catholic, anti-Evangelical, and even racist hate speech at an Internet forum over which it exercised editorial control, and which published an official anti-Catholic hate cartoon that shows the Pope waving a gavel in front of the U.S. Supreme Court.

PETITION AGAINST FOX'S RACIST & HATE-FILLED SMEARS: "FOX must stop injecting racism, prejudice, and fear into our political dialogue. We intend to hold FOX, its advertisers, and its personalities accountable for FOX's attempts to smear the Obamas."

In 2006, we and others forced MoveOn.org to take down its prized Action Forum by publicizing the contents: 9/11 conspiracy theories that would be right at home at the Jeff Rense Show, a literal blood libel of Jews, and a wide variety of hate speech against Jews, Catholics, and others. Now that MoveOn.org has chosen to levy an outrageous false accusation of "racism" against Fox News, we need to revisit the truth about MoveOn.org.

MoveOn.org and its supporters (e.g. the National Jewish Democratic Council) argued that MoveOn.org was not responsible for the hate speech because it was user-generated content, and that MoveOn.org "discovered" it only in August of 2006. There is, however, extensive proof that MoveOn.org exercised editorial control over the Action Forum by deleting content with which it did not agree. The Action Forum's own FAQ page says that the moderators read each entry twice, and that means they saw (and found acceptable) each piece of hate speech twice.

Now let us take a look at the kind of content that was welcomed by MoveOn.org. The Action Forum allows users to vote agreement or disagreement with each entry. Where available, we have shown the votes for the hate speech in question.

==================================
Direct quotes from MoveOn.org's Action Forum

Congressman Tom Lantos told PM Olmert of Israel that he wants to freeze the $ 230 million U.S. aid package to Lebanon. Lantos is the ranking democrat on the House Foreign Relations Comte. Lantos said, "The [Lebanese] aid package should be witheld until the Lebanese government displays responsibility". Responsibility ? Israel is guilty of war crimes in their cowardely attack on Lebanon and the whining, arrogant Jew wants Lebanon to demonstrate responsibility ! This is another example of how many Jews/Zioniosts in our Congress use the U.S. for their own greedy purposes. DUMP ISRAEL.

14 out of 17 voted to AGREE with this.

=======================

If you are a Jew and want respect;
Denounce Israel’s abuse and occupation of Palestinians for the last 50 yrs and stop spreading the lies you heard on Fox Israel News.
Condemn AIPACs manipulation of the US foreign policy.
Read and acknowledge the validity of the “Israeli Lobby” papers.
Until you do you’ll just sound like the Bush administration defending their reasons for going to war.
If you just can’t do it deny that you are Jewish.
Our parents abused some of us, some were drunks, some were divorced and some had Jewish parents. We don’t have to hang on to our past.

======================

We need your help in finding a word that is less offensive.
One that describes the Jewish congressmen and Jewish owned media that has a greater allegiance to Israel than the US. And who are demonizing Israel’s neighbors and supporting Israel’s bombing and occupation.
Read "Israeli Lobby" google it.

We can all see how AIPAC/Israel has taken control of America. Not to get nasty but jews have a long history of subverting governments for their own enrichment and glory to the detriment of whole societies. Many more than "6 million" have died by semetic aggression, 100's of millions even, remember the conqueror writes history. Even the roman empire feared jewish power. Over and over again, whites, particularly semites have distorted truth through their supremacist, zenophobic minds. Ariel Sharon Oct of 2001 per Kol Israel, "... Don't worry about america, we control america and the americans know it." There is a mental pathology gripping my tribe, as the native americans say, "white man have forked tongue", we must become enlightened, or we will be destroyed.

Did Anyone Watch the AlteraVista tape Showing A Missle Hole Not An Airplane Shape into the Pentagon? And many other things from video and reporters as 9/11 was happening that it isn't what it looks like.
One thing is true that we Do know: American Citizens died as pawns. Let's get to the truth, however painful it is going to be to discover. Our nation's future depends on it.

Israel has 8,000 Palestinian prisoners, Hezbollah and Hamas has 3 Israeli prisoners.
Israel is killing civilians and their children with our missiles and has never stopped stealing Palestinian land, farms, and precious aquifers.
Removing all Israeli obsessed Jews from congress would stop a lot of killing.

MoveOn.org's Action Forum on why Jews deserved the Holocaust:

The Jews have 9,000 prisoners the Arabs have 3.
It’s the Jews that are trying to push the Arabs into the sea by occupying and annexing their land, bulldozing refugee camps and orchards.
The Jews are killing the Arabs on a ratio of 10 to 1.
The Palestinians live in a prison, no way in or out without passing through an abusive Jewish guard gate.
The Jews demand that the Pals. disarm prior to any negotiating of what if anything they’ll get back. That is called begging not negotiating.
Nearly 3/4 of the entire Jewish population was exterminated. If you can’t tell us why, We are stuck with logic and commonsense.
I’m saying Jews instead of Israelis because I read the Israeli newspapers, the “Israeli Lobby” papers and have seen the House vote 410-8 in support Israel while the UN typically votes 191-4 against Israel. Also the billions in aid and military equipment are conspicuous. The world court unanimously voted against Israel.
By blaming Hitler you don’t have to face the truth.
I will stop condemning Jews when they become acclimated with all people.
Stop professing to know and start reading.

Mr Goody-two-shoes, I hope you didn’t volunteer for Vietnam, otherwise you are just a mercenary like the others.
Did you ever wonder what the Vietnamese did to you to be killed by the millions and to have their country burned to the ground?

I wasn’t even referring to the atrocities committed in places like Abu Ghraib but to plain prostitution, the only way to survive for women and children widowed and orphaned by the US
war machine. It is a fact that a prostitute in Afghanistan costs the equivalent of 25 cents.
Now, don’t tell me you never saw a prostitute during your stay in Vietnam. Anyway I would have no way to disprove your claim because these are things heroes like you don’t brag
about.

11 of 13 AGREE to spit on our Vietnam veterans yet again

=========================

Thanks Harry, for telling it like it is. Rice and Powell ARE "house
slaves". And the "Republicans ARE like the Jews who worked for Hitler"

And Shrub IS "a tyrant and a terrorist". Harry, we need people like you

All the above quotes were welcomed on MoveOn.org's now-disgraced Action Forum, over which MoveOn.org's moderators exercised editorial control by removing material with which MoveOn.org did not agree. Now, Eli Pariser (aka Eli Parasite, our response to Pariser's insult to General Petraeus), do you want to tell us again why Fox News is racist?

National Jewish Democratic Council's Response to Debate Challenge

More than a week ago, Ira Forman, the head of the National "Jewish" Democratic Council (shills whose primary function is to convince Jewish voters that the anti-Semitic excrement from MoveOn.org and Al Sharpton doesn't stink) allowed himself to make the following noises: "It is time all of us— organizations and individuals— take the responsibility for outing and yes, even shaming, the purveyors of sinat chinam [baseless hatred] in our community — to protect our values and to protect our community’s genuine political interests.”

We stepped up immediately and identified ourself as one of the leaders of efforts to expose Barack Obama for cavorting openly with vicious anti-Semites, racists, and/or hate organizations like Al Sharpton, the National Action Network, Jeremiah Wright, and MoveOn.org. Since we don't see a need to say behind someone's back what we will not say to his face, we E-mailed the linked material to the NJDC to invite it to "out and shame us." We are still waiting for NJDC to show that its words are more than empty threats.

Ira Forman, James Fenimore Cooper's Last of the Mohicans has just the right words for you and your organization: "Your tongue is loud in the village, but in battle it is still. None of my young men strike the tomahawk deeper into the war-post--none of them so lightly on the Yengeese. The enemy know the shape of your back, but they have never seen the color of your eyes. Three times have they called on you to come, and as often did you forget to answer."
