The Agenda Behind the Money Allegations

The Obama White House has been making allegations that "shadowy groups" and foreign interests are pouring money into to the midterm elections in an attempt to influence your vote and destroy our democracy.

On October 7, at a fund raiser in Bowie Maryland, the President said, "It is estimated the Democratic groups are being outspend seven to one. We're going to need to fight their millions of dollars with millions of voices."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi D-(elusional) followed that up by claiming Democrats were being outspent eight to one. The Huffington Post, never one to miss a good liberal bandwagon said the numbers were $200 million from GOP leaning 527 groups compared to a paltry $7 million supporting the Democrat cause.

The Wall Street Journal did their own math and came up with a different answer:

So the math here comes out quit a bit different then what the President and his supports have been arguing. In fact it would appear possible that the unions are the largest spenders, which pushes overall spending more in the Democrats favor.

Of course raising concerns regrading your opponents fundraising is nothing new. Although most in the media have forgotten the untraceable money that came into the Obama Presidential campaign. Jim Geraghty of the National Review points out this inconvenient truth:

"Very few Americans seemed to care about these allegations of foreign donations or donations using stolen credit card numbers back in 2008. It interfered with the narrative, I guess, even though it would seem to be a fairly huge story; we are indeed talking about huge amounts. By one count, $63 million came to Obama from foreign sources. Even if that figure is exaggerated tenfold, this is still a big deal.

It’s not only hypocritical for President Obama, of all figures, to suddenly thunder about the menace of sinister foreign money helping the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; in 2008, we had actual evidence of foreign money ending up in Obama campaign coffers. (We had it in 1996 with Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign, too.) It was deemed a back-pages story and perhaps even a bit xenophobic."

So why would the President choose THIS message as the one to go after? Some have speculated it's because the Democrats don't want to talk about health care prior to the election. I have a different theory.

The President is looking to 2012. His fear is that of being a one term president. The history books will record him as the first black President*. That asterisk will add the footnote that his single term was spent pushing an agenda that was utterly rejected by the country, and his presidency was a complete failure that set the progressive moment back 30 years.

President Obama needs to win a second term in order to have history validate his agenda of 'Hope and Change' rather then simply note he was a good orator who became the most un-prepared and divisive president in history. And at this point in time with the coming tsunami about to sweep the Democrats out of majority, it appears the only hope the President has in winning a second term is to find a boogie man to blame it all on. What better then nameless, faceless "shadowy groups", akin to the "vast right-wing conspiracy" of the Clinton administration. 'They' are pouring money into negative attack ads, distorting both Obama's many accomplishments and his agenda. My belief is that we better prepare ourselves of hearing how Obama's message is being twisted, he is being blocked by the 'party of no' from forging ahead and pushing America to even greater heights.

No doubt he is counting on Americans forgetting his "I won" response to Republican looking for compromise, and of Republicans being locked out of committee meetings (he knows he can count on the media not bringing it up).

As things sit today, his only hope in getting re-elected is to spend the next two year convincing Americans that every one's lives would be better, if it just wasn't for all those phantom radical right wing groups who bought the election, and that wacky, racist tea party hijacking the Republican controlled House. Loosing the House in the 2010 midterms will be due simply to the election being bought in the worse corruption conspiracy since Bush stole Florida from Gore. The only thing standing between us and total destruction of our country is him. Our only hope for the future will be to keep in him office in 2012.

Otherwise he is just a guy who gave good speeches, who was grossly over hyped and under qualified for the office, and who became the most divisive President in history.

"When they can’t win a debate (can they ever?), leftists deploy what the late novelist/philosopher Ayn Rand called “the argument from intimidation.” Instead of trying to refute the other side, they label their opponents’ position evil, attribute sinister motives to its adherents, and charge that its proponents are encouraging violence." - Don Feder

Lizards Have Rights Too!

If you don't vote for a Democrat, you're a lizard...or something...

"What I’m saying is that people are operating out of fear and anxiety at the moment. And when they operate out of fear and anxiety, they operate out of what they call their “lizard brains.” And “lizard brains” are not susceptible to rationality."

So Lizards can vote, they just aren't rational.

Obama Administration Spending $30 Million To Show Citizens The Light

From the 'what's wrong with this picture' department:


Palestinians Continue Their Suffering: No 3D TV?

* Time magazine, which previously claimed that Palestinians were “starving,” now writes of the Palestinian “multistory villas fronted by ornamental porticos and columns,” the “car dealerships selling everything from BMWs to Hyundais,” and the “state of the art gyms with the latest equipment, classes in spinning, kickboxing and Pilates, a sauna and even a smoothie bar.”

* Leading British newspaper columnist writes from Gaza: “Then there is the use of the word ‘siege’. Can anyone think of a siege in human history, from Syracuse to Leningrad, where the shops of the besieged city have been full of Snickers bars and Chinese motorbikes, and where European Union and other foreign aid projects pour streams of cash (often yours) into the pockets of thousands?”

* One by one, the major media of the world are changing their tune on reporting about economic conditions in Gaza and the West Bank.

SEIU Spends $200K in 1 Week on Behalf of Democrats

Hey, do you suppose that the SEIU collects union fees and contributions from members in FOREIGN COUNTRIES?

Not sure whether Dean just sidesteps the statement, or just lies about it. What she failed to mention was the un-sourced $400 million that poured into the Obama campaign during his presidential campaign.

Even the folks at MSNBC have commented on the hypocracy of the charge. Andrea Mitchell gets to the heart of the issue: The Democrats have no other effective bullets in their gun, and the 'foreign money' charge polls well. And we know all too well from the insider reports of the government takeover of GM how much Axelrod loves to manage by the poll numbers.

Bwaney Fwank's Boyfriend Heckles Republican Opponent

A new low, which is really saying something. I got to wonder what would the reaction be if Sean Bielat's wife had heckled Bwaney.

The Third Jihad

Murder and Double Standards South of the Border

48 Americans have been killed in Mexico so far this year. The body of David Hartley, killed while jet skiing on Falcon Reservoir with his wife has as yet to be recovered. Mexican authorities have chosen to cast doubt on his wife rather then help recover his body.

Now as you consider this, keep in mind that Mexico is joining Argentina, Bolivia Brazil, Ecuador, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, and Chile in submitting a friend-of-the-court brief in Obama's Justice Department challenge to Arizona's new SB 1070 immigration law.

With friends like these....

It turns out that the Mexican government is very concerned with illegal immigration. The are in the process of constructing a fence along it's border. It's Southern Border. While not being reported in American media, the irony was picked up by the Canadian press.
