Obama’s cashier’s window?
Washington Post, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/28/2013 5:47:03 AM

FOR EVIDENCE that the permanent campaign has become embedded in our national life, look no further than President Obama’s recent announcement that he is setting up a group to keep his supporters energized and enrolled for action in a second term. To be called Organizing for Action, the group will harvest the rich data — e-mails and names — of the Obama foot soldiers who knocked on doors and got out the vote. (Snip)Certainly, there’s something bigger going on here — a mix of technical prowess and grass-roots smarts. But there is also a whiff of something fishy.

FTA "What’s most troubling is that President Obama seems to have developed a tin ear about shadow money in politics."

As if. Sure WaPo, y´all didn´t see this coming?

I thought at this point in a POTUS career (year #5) he´s supposed to be raising money for his library. Something is fishy indeed.

An Obama voter´s comment to the WaPo editorial says it best:

Mathonwy
2:34 AM EST
This, coupled with the president´s lack of interest in appointing FEC commissioners and his historic rejection of matching funds, clearly demonstrates his hostility to the lessons of Watergate. Could this be the return of the slush fund? I voted for the president twice and this worries me greatly. Did I unknowingly vote for the 21st century Richard Nixon?!?

Obama is the most domestically dangerous president in all American history. Even the DNC should stay alert to any secret agenda Obama may have.

Let no one forget Obama´s promise to form a "civilian national security force with the power of the military".

Since every city in America (almost) has its own police force, and every State has its own law enforcement procedures, and since the country already has a military and a National Guard, what on earth is the need for Obama´s civilian force unless it is to keep the People´s uprising in line when our guns are confiscated so we cannot protect ourselves from our own government?

Shall we begin peeking beneath the unturned pages and find out what he is really up to?

#4 I´m afraid has seen into the future. As I posted on this subject a day or so ago, the 22nd Amendment would need to be repealed and replaced by a new Amendment that would allow Obama to seek more terms.

The 22nd Amendment was passed by Congress in March 1947, but it wasn´t ratified until February 1951. The 22nd Amendment came about because of the 4-term strangle hold FDR had on the presidency.

Please be aware that efforts have gone on for the last sixteen years to repeal the 22nd Amendment. From the website Ask.com, it says: On January 4, 2013, Rep. José Serrano once again introduced H.J.Res. 15 proposing an Amendment to repeal the 22nd Amendment, as he has done every two years since 1997.

To be successful this bill would first have to be passed by Congress and then be ratified by 38 states. For Obama to even run in 2016 the above mentioned bill now only has 47 months left to be in place for Obama. Actually, less time when you consider the party conventions take place in either August or September.

Readers must stay on their toes regarding this subject and be alert to Democrat machinations - what else is new where Dems are concerned?

While I´m not sure yet what they huge bankroll will eventually be used for, I am certain of how the huge bankroll will be grown.

Think PUSH/Rainbow Coalition and Jesse Jackson and their corporate diversity shakedowns. In case you are not familiar, the Rev would go to a large, rich corporation and meet with them. His pitch was basically to say "Either hire my friend/relative for your newly created Corp Diversity Executive and ´contibute´ greatly to the PUSH/Rainbow Coalition or we´ll picket and boycott your racist corporation."

Voila! Instant slush fund of millions of corporate dollars and a diversity mole/cancer in every major corporation in America.

Obama has already started this. I saw where his first donors to this new OFA fund are Lockheed Martin and Wal-mart.

No need to ratify anything, #9. 0bama has been circumventing the constitution for over four years now and has gotten away with it. If he wants another term he will simply announce that he´s running and the parasites of society will flock to vote for him. Who would stop him? Congress? The Supreme Court? No one will stop him because that would be RACIST.

This isn´t "coming". It has been here since the first "Organizing" campaign in 2007-08 when they used every trick in the book - giveaways, dinners with Barack, the works - to glean email addresses for their data bank. They bragged that they had millions.

That organization has morphed along through two campaigns and the first term and is now renamed (again) and rolling through the second term.

This is Axelrod´s Astroturf, the faux grassroots setup intended to change the country. Obie gets the small people stirred up, tells them how miserable they are, puts pressure on them to pressure their congresspersons to pass his legislation. Mooch sends emails to the database, urging them on. Revolution. Go and have another look at Van Jones (top down-bottom up) and Saul Alinsky.

The WaPo appears to be waking up. Finally. After six years of this same strategy. The only slightly new thing is the name.

Perhaps the funds and people are being collected to support a Mooch run for the presidency. She´s still very popular, according to polls.

Once again I draw your attention to the company that set up, or guided the creation of, the blueprint for collecting those democrat funds and volunteers, beginning (apparently) with the democrat convention. Please see:

http://tinyurl.com/9qfmvmo

Note that the website created by the company for the dems drew 400 hits per second at its height. How can Republicans compete with this?

Please read more about the company (whose name I am deliberately not typing but appears when you click on the tinyurl above) which has gobbled up almost all, if not absolutely all, its competition in the nonprofit fundraising business. Click on "Donor Management" (read "manipulation" for "management") to get an idea of how this all works.

If you´re a cat lover and you receive an animal welfare .org solicitation, showing cute cats, it´s probably from this company´s incredible database. If you´re a ferret lover, then you´ll get that same solicitation with a cute ferrets photo and verbiage. It´s why I quit sending checks to charitable organizations a long time ago, but I´ll give them cash. This company´s database gets bigger and more sophisticated as time goes on and it often takes days to integrate a new batch of data to the database software when another competitor has been consumed.

Robots troll the internet for more information on donors via social sites like Facebook. The database has enough information to enable the software to generate a solicitation tailored specifically to a subject or group of subjects. Do you realize the significance of all this to the permanent Obama campaign? Even George Orwell would be taken aback.

Number one, the person that wrote this at WAPO is a complete moron. Who and what Obama is has been on full display for anyone willing to see it.

Number two: Richard Nixon was no Obama, and any comparisons is insulting to the memory of Nixon. No one died as a result of Nixon´s indiscretions.

Number three: Were Nixon a democrat today, the press would ignore Watergate as a nothing burger.

Well here´s what I think. Next time Obama wants to ask whether so and so has contriuted or not, obviously aiming to intimidate, the GOP should by all means point out that this is a bad idea. But could we not also get someone to step forward and say that he personally on behalf of the GOP would be very interested in the same information. What we don´t want, is Obama interested and the GOP disarming in advance, saying they´d never look. I mean. Let Obama find out this is a two-edged sword and the rest of us know if he doesn´t that his time in office is limited.

Just three months after Rep. Trey Radel resigned his safe Republican seat in southwest Florida, Republican voters have chosen his likely successor: Curt Clawson. He won the election the old-fashioned way, by making a ton of money in the private sector and then splattering the airwaves with TV ads. In the process, Clawson rolled up endorsements from local Tea Party leaders and from the Tea Party Express. It wasn´t that he was particularly conservative -- he had no prior political record, and had even donated to Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow. It was enough, according to the Tea Party Express, that he

LAS VEGAS -- Federal authorities remain silent about their next plans to confront Cliven Bundy at his Bunkerville ranch. Both sides are fighting over history, with federal courts denying Bundy´s claims of "ancestral rights" on the Virgin River valley. The I-Team dug into century-old records to examine Bundy´s claims. At the Bunkerville camp next to Cliven Bundy´s ranch, there are constant reminders of history. Revolutionary War flags, ancient Greek mottos and native American symbols, all mixing together to create a growing identity and narrative for protestors. This land is unusually fertile and green for southern Nevada. Cliven Bundy grows melons there. They are said

The Supreme Court let states ban race as a factor in college admissions. That’s a good first step toward race-blind education that can focus on root problems. Shortly before his assassination President Kennedy addressed the nation on June 11, 1963 to explain his decision to federalize the Alabama National Guard to integrate the University of Alabama. In part, Kennedy offered: It ought to be possible in short for every American to enjoy the privileges of being an American, without regard to his race or his color. In short, every American ought to have the right to be treated, as he or she

It was one of the more raucous decisions in a while, with plenty of twists and turns in terms of who went with the majority or the dissent and what they said. But the Washington Examiner dug a bit deeper later in the day, finding what amounted to a bit of a slug-fest in the footnotes between Sonia Sotomayor and Antonin Scalia.

Angry atheists are at it again. This week, they’re taking on Dabo Swinney, head coach of the Clemson Tigers. His alleged unlawful conduct? Expressing his Christian faith and allegedly making a number of voluntary religious activities available to his players -- the adult student-athletes at Clemson. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation sent Clemson University a “letter of complaint” detailing Swinney’s alleged constitutional violations, including such atrocities as the team’s volunteer chaplain writing Bible verses on a whiteboard and the team making available bus transportation to players who wish to attend church. In a reasonable constitutional world, this complaint would be ignored by

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A North Carolina prosecutor was the original target of an elaborate kidnapping plot, but the kidnappers looked up the wrong address on the Internet and abducted the prosecutor´s father by mistake, an indictment released Tuesday said. Nine people were charged in the kidnapping of 63-year-old Frank Janssen, the father of Wake Forest Assistant District Attorney Colleen Janssen. Frank Janssen was abducted April 5 from his Wake Forest home and held captive for five days in Atlanta before being rescued by the FBI.

KATMANDU, Nepal -- Dozens of Sherpa guides packed up their tents and left Mount Everest´s base camp Wednesday, after the avalanche deaths of 16 of their colleagues exposed an undercurrent of resentment by Sherpas over their pay, treatment and benefits. With the entire climbing season increasingly thrown into doubt, the government quickly announced that top tourism officials would fly to base camp Thursday to negotiate with the Sherpas and encourage them to return to work. But while Nepal´s government has been heavily criticized for not doing enough for the Sherpas in the wake of last week´s disaster, the deadliest ever on the

For the sake of argument, The Scrapbook is willing to concede that it is possible that Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher, ought to be allowed to graze his cattle on federal land in Nye County. And that protecting the desert tortoise as an endangered species on that same federal land is no good reason to impose a fee for grazing livestock. Reasonable people can disagree about these issues, and will do so. But in the United States of America, since 1789, we have had ways of settling these disputes.

National Journal published two stories late last week that immediately rocketed ’round the lefty blogosphere. The first argued that Obamacare was on a fabulous “winning streak;” the second followed up on the same theme, asserting that conservative critics of the law have sustained a credibility hit as a result of all this supposedly great news.

ALBUQUERQUE – One of New Mexico’s candidates for Governor is downplaying his ties to a co-founder of the radical anti-government Weather Underground. Democrat Alan Webber has raised the most money out of the five candidates vying for the party’s nomination and the right to take on Governor Susana Martinez in the November election. It turns out Webber got some fundraising help from a controversial source. From the late 1960´s to the mid 1970´s, the anti-war group the Weather Underground planted and detonated bombs at targets across the country. The group’s manifesto called for the violent overthrow of the United States government. One of its

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline. She blamed the Obama administration

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park
