China-Based Fundraiser Linked
to Illegal Foreign Donations

Washington Free Beacon, by Andrew Stiles

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/8/2012 10:46:43 AM

A prominent Democratic donor with ties to the Red Chinese government may be implicated in the Obama campaign’s flouting of federal campaign finance law, according to a bombshell investigative report. The groundbreaking new study, authored by the Government Accountability Institute (GAI), highlights the “curious case” of Obama.com, a website previously, and possibly still, owned by Obama campaign bundler and frequent White House visitor Robert W. Roche. (Snip)Visitors to the site, more than two-thirds of which are located outside the United States, are redirected to the Obama campaign’s main donation page at barackobama.com.

And just like Al Gore in the Buddhist temple, this, too will have no controlling legal authority.

Yeah this "bombshell" they've been teasing us with is not going to touch Obama. The media will just say he had no knowledge of it. Cover for him just as they always do...

Nothing here to get excited about. We all know that this slug and his family and all the people around him are not subject to the laws that the rest of us are.

This story is so unimportant that the left wing media will not even report it.

It is now time for me to go wipe the sarcasm off my mouth and pop another cool one !!

Not new news....he did the same thing in '08 and nothing happened....as I remember,the website for donations didn't bother to check the field that noted if the donation was out of country or not.

This outfit is so low it would make a snake feel like a king.

Okay people -- forcus!!

Our job is to win back the White House -- away from the commie/leffie/marxist. I hesitate to add -- moooooslim -- but -- WE all know the truth....

Speaking of the truth -- the demorats and the media wouldn't know the "truth" if it bit 'em in the posterior. Just as VP Bite me prepares to debate VP Ryan -- WE have yet another case of "in over their heads" diplomacy.

The 0bama campaign needs more money and suddenly they get it from a bunch of 'anonymous' donors in odd amounts and definite links to having originated from overseas. All this was expected, and you know they planned it, AGAIN, as well. Let's be like a real democracy and through this regime out of office and THEN investigate and prosecute.

Of course the MSM will try to ignore this like they did in '08. Unlike in '08, however, when McCain refused to criticize Obama for anything, it appears that the Republicans may have a candidate in Romney that will.

If Romney takes this right at Obama in the next debate, the media may not have a choice but to cover.

There is a simple solution to this.

Simply put a rider on a bill that makes it illegal to not have the IP filter working on any organization that takes money for campaigns in the US. If that filter is not there then the fine is $1,000,000 per day and 110% of any monies collected from that site must be donated to a charity of the political opponents chpoice.

Monica Crowley said earlier that you could go to the Obambi store and buy all the bling you want but when you use your credit card, you'd better have all the information for security purposes and yet no such firewalls exist on their donations web site. They got into trouble for this last time around. It shows how desperate they are getting.

Those firewalls and such are not there to protect the company collecting money via credit card--they are supposed to protect the Credit card holder!! So, it is worse if they ask a bunch of personal questions without the firewall.

The Dangerous Absurdity of
the Secret “Cuban Twitter”
The New Yorker, by Jon Lee Anderson    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 4/5/2014 11:29:43 AM     Post Reply
An eye-catching A.P. story, published Thursday, revealed that, in 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (U.S.A.I.D.) covertly deployed a social-media program in Cuba in the hope of bringing about a Cuban Spring. The network, called ZunZuneo, was offered to Cubans via the country’s mobile-phone network as a free text service, and attracted forty thousand subscribers before mysteriously ending operations in 2012. The contractors who ran the program are said to have concealed its U.S.-government origins via an offshore system of front companies and foreign servers, and to have collected data on subscribers’ “political tendencies” and “receptiveness,” among other

WASHINGTON — The toxic partisanship that’s paralyzed most Washington lawmaking for years often spared congressional consideration of intelligence matters. Not this time. Not when the topic is the CIA’s use of enhanced interrogation techniques _ widely regarded as torture _ against detainees who were suspected terrorists.(Snip) Republicans saw the report as largely an indictment of a Bush-era policy, he said, and because the program is now defunct, it became easier to make political points.

Jose A. Rodriguez Jr. is the former head of the CIA’s National Clandestine Service and the author of “Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives.” People might think it is wrong for me to condemn a report I haven’t read. But since the report condemns a program I ran, I think I have justification. On Thursday, the Senate Intelligence Committee voted to declassify and release hundreds of pages of its report on U.S. terrorist interrogation practices. Certain senators have proclaimed how devastating the findings are, saying the CIA’s program was unproductive, badly managed and misleadingly sold. Unlike

A Chinese ship searching for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 detected a "pulse signal" in the southern Indian Ocean Saturday, but there was no evidence yet that it was linked to the missing plane, state media said. The signal picked up by the vessel´s black box detector had a frequency of 37.5kHz per second, the official Xinhua news agency said -- identical to the beacon signal emitted by flight recorders. The announcement came nearly a month after the Malaysian jetliner disappeared off radar screens en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board, triggering an unprecedented international search.

EVERETT, Wash. — As medical examiners painstakingly piece together the identities and lives of the people killed when a mudslide wiped out a small Washington community, a mystery troubles them. One of the 30 bodies found does not fit with descriptions on the missing persons list, which, as of Thursday included 15 people, according to the Snohomish County Sheriff´s Office. The only clue to the man´s identity is his gold molars, said Heather Oie, operations manager at the Snohomish County Medical Examiner´s Office. He might have been someone who was on the highway or going for a hike.

Two weeks ago, the famed Crusader castle Crac des Chevaliers, one of the irreplaceable Syrian heritage sites named to the 2014 World Monuments Watch, again found itself a target in the Syrian civil war. This winter, the film "Monuments Men" told the story of how, over two years, with virtually no resources or support, a ragtag division of 345 volunteers from 17 countries working under the aegis of the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives (MFAA) program rescued six million stolen artworks from Nazi depots, including some of the world´s most esteemed masterpieces, and saved hundreds of historic buildings, objects and archival

The CIA’s former deputy director disclosed Wednesday that Obama administration officials were alerted the day before they went on national television that a key tenet of their original Benghazi storyline might be inaccurate.

FORT HOOD - At least one person is dead after a shooting late Wednesday afternoon on Fort Hood, a post spokesman confirmed. Others were injured in the shooting, but the spokesman didn’t say how many. One source told News 10 that as many as 15 wounded victims were taken to hospitals and that some were being treated at Scott & White Hospital in Temple while Fort Hood confirmed that others were taken to Carl R.

It´s lunchtime at Washington Preparatory High School in Los Angeles, but 16-year-old Parrish Jackson has barely touched her turkey burger and apricots. She´s dumping them into the trash can.(Snip) And so it goes on hundreds of campuses in Los Angeles Unified, the nation´s second-largest school system, which serves 650,000 meals a day. Students throw out at least $100,000 worth of food a day — and probably far more, according to estimates by David Binkle, the district´s food services director. That amounts to $18 million a year — based on a conservative estimate of 10% food waste — which Binkle says

Supreme Court lifts overall limits on

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court on Wednesday freed wealthy donors to give more money directly to congressional candidates, extending its controversial 2010 Citizens United decision that opened the door for unlimited independent spending on political issues. In a 5-4 decision, the court’s conservative majority struck down Watergate-era aggregate limits that barred political donors from giving more than $123,000 a year in total to candidates running for seats in the House of Representatives or Senate. The court said this limit violated the free-speech rights of the donors, and it was not needed to prevent “corruption” of the political process.

SANTIAGO, Chile -- Chilean President Michelle Bachelet toured northern Chile on Wednesday, inspecting the damage from a magnitude 8.2 earthquake the night before that left six people dead and forced the evacuation of about 900,000 others but which apparently caused less damage than feared. At first glance Wednesday morning, damage to northern coastal cities near the epicenter seemed to be minor, according to local news reports and government officials. There were scattered fires caused by gas leaks and some structural damage to homes and businesses but apparently little devastation in the vicinity of Pisagua, near the offshore epicenter of the quake.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.
