The Light Shown on the Ellie Light Mystery: . . . is Ellie Light a Journalist named Samantha Power?
LCR ^ | January 23rd | Left Coast Rebel

Posted on 01/23/2010 7:59:50 PM PST by Halfmanhalfamazing

Like a detective on a trail, I'm all over this Ellie Light thing (still), the next tidbit I will point you to is the actual meaning of the name and the potential allusion to the Obama campaign symbol and a few other theories like the Cass Sunstein/Samantha Power possibility. As everyone knows by now, the 'transparency' of the Obama administration is an illusion, I think that this story is another (potential) determining factor of just that as well. I also read a report that Ellie Light has been featured in over 60 newspapers as of now. Readers have opined that 'Ellie Light' probably votes in each city/district that the papers are located in as well.

As anyone that can do a quick Google will find, the name 'Ellie' comes from Greek name Helen lending it the meaning of "light". So obviously we can then see that the name is most likely a pseudonym for something of meaning, something particular - light.

....

I believe Ellie Light is a journalist by the name of Samantha Power. The meaning of the name ellie is light. An Ellie is also a national magazine award which Ms. Power won in 2005 for a piece in New Yorker magazine, entitled Dying in Darfur.

Wasn’t there a Samantha Power who worked for Obama during his campaign, but got canned when she said something untoward about Hilary?

Or maybe it is just a first and last name taken at random by flipping through the phone book.

Same Samantha Power. Married to Cass Sunstein, Obama’s Info Czar. Called Hillary a monster, got fired, then somehow got rehired to National Security Council. Ellie Light. Cognitive Infiltrator.

If they published identical pieces in multiple publications with identical nom de plumes, and did not expect to get caught, there is no underestimating their stupidity.

I’m also intrigued by this story. As much as anything, I’m surprised that the Cleveland Plain Dealer seems to have played a significant role in discovering these “thousand points of Light”.

35 Years ago The Plain Dealer was a great newspaper, and I spent countless cold winter mornings delivering to customers; lately it’s been a shameless leftist tool. Welcome back to the real world CPD !

If I was Ellie, I wouldn’t be concerned about being busted ans an cog in an astro turf scam. I’d be concerned about being revealed as having the writing and debating skills of a third grader.

Not proof, but some very good thread pulling here:

I believe Ellie Light is a journalist by the name of Samantha Power. The meaning of the name ellie is light. An Ellie is also a national magazine award which Ms. Power won in 2005 for a piece in New Yorker magazine, entitled Dying in Darfur.

She worked for Senator Barack Obama and then on his presidential campaign before she was forced to resign for referring to Hillary Clinton as a monster.

While there, she met then later married Cass Sunstein who works in the Obama administration as Administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

While at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-"independent" advocates to "cognitively infiltrate" online groups and websites.

In addition to this , the latin word, Lucifer, means bearer of light. Saul Alinsky, in Rules for Radicals, dedication is to Lucifer.

That's true, but I suspect something went technically wrong with their usual cloaking system. Sort of like when FR starts giving multiple posts. There were probably not supposed to be so many of the same letter with the same name. This may prove to be the tip of the iceberg, revealing a much bigger Obamaganda push.

Very shrewd! I wondered if there something about that name.

But what gets me is, if Ellie Light is a nom-de-plume, why repeat it in 60 different papers? I would have thought someone would grok that "Ellie Light" appeared in 60 different papers, if all they did were a search for the name on an engine. Why not 60 different names? And change-up the points and superlatives???

I agree. In their Long March to the establish the glorious Worker's Paradise, they tend to get a bit careless and sloppy. It also reminds me of an old Dilbert punchline:

Angry Goof: "Don't underestimate me!"

Dogbert: "Oh, I could never do that."

I remember someone had a software program that could determine who writers are. I think they used it to discover Joe Klein wrote that book by “anonymous” about the Clinton’s. I think anyway.

That's the thing about this. They didn't think they would get caught and that is why they acted so stupidity. And they probably thought that if they did get caught, the Obama loving State Run Media would ignore the story.

Last summer, when the health care debate started heating up, I noticed a significant number of letters to the editor of our local McClatchey paper, that seemed formulaic. You know the type, I have a neighbor or a friend, or a relative from France, or Canada or England, who just loves their health care system. Anyway I was suspicious, but then then a letter appeared that was exactly like another one, except for the last part identifying a friend rather than a relative and I knew that the letters were astro turf. I did a google search on SEIU/Bellingham and lo and behold a post on DU came up, asking for letters and offering help writing the letters. The post gave the address and phone number of the local Bellingham office of the SEIU. I of course reposted the information on the paper’s web site and that pretty much ended the astro-turf. This is just more of the same. The letters were probably meant as examples and were repeated word for word.

Could DU have gotten orders to do the same with Ellie Light in local areas giving local address and phone number as the papers usually request for fact checking?

Omarxist is clearly engaged in propaganda (as proven by that NEA conference call).

However, I think the Kenyan Communist stages distractions to keep us occupied while he fries bigger fish.

Example: The Salahis “crashed” the White House party. How much time did we waste on that story, while we SHOULD HAVE BEEN focused on stopping ObamaCare? It was almost like Obama did it, then said “Whoops, nobody noticed, let’s ANNOUNCE the screwup so they’ll pay attention... while my other hand does THIS.”

And now this Ellie Light thing. Would they really be stupid enough to use the SAME NAME for 30 letters sent around the country to be published? Not unless they were deliberately planting another “distraction” to occupy us while they pulled more behind-the-scenes fascist shenanigans.

Just like the so-called “Kenyan Birth Certificate,” these are curiosities, tailor-made to keep the internet “brain” occupied on trivial matters..... while the Communists seize more of our freedoms.

What SHOULD we be worried about? Nationalizing student loans. Raising the debt ceiling, AGAIN. Barney Fwank wanting BIGGER government ownership of mortgages. $400 billion to FNMA/FHLMC. Giving terrorists “rights” so they’ll stop talking to the CIA.

Compared to those LARGE and DANGEROUS issues, the smaller “conspiracy theories” feel like red herrings intended to waste our time.

I really don't think that it had anything to do with DU, other than the fact that the SEIU used DU to get out the word. I'm pretty sure that the Democrats have teams of spammers for every major newspaper and their web sites in the country. The WSJ is inundated with liberal posters whenever any article regarding health care or the SEIU is posted.

There is an article on the WSJ right now about how Eric Holder set up a group of spammers to defend his department of justice.

Because at least some editors were in on the scam? "Ellie Light" is preapproved for publication.
