Big Scoop Coming Down Tonight
Ace of Spades HQ and Mypetjawa ^ | 09/21/2008 | Ace of Spades and Mypetjawa

Posted on 09/21/2008 5:56:53 PM PDT by tsmith130

From Ace's site:

Probably at about midnight or just before.

It's Rusty's story. It'll be posted later. Midnight ET or maybe a bit after.

The basics? Axelrod's astroturfing. An attempt to get a blatantly dishonest anti-Palin ad to go "viral" on YouTube. Gross deception in pumping out fake "amateur grassroots" ads which are really cooked up by a big PR firm strongly connected to David Axelrod and Obama's officially-acknowledged ads. And likely bright-line violations of electioneering laws, which require those putting out "electioneering communications" to disclose the true creator and sponsor of such ads.

Oh, Yeah: I forgot to say:

IMPACTING...


TOPICS: News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: campaignfinance; electionads; electionpresident; mccainpalin; obamabiden; rumor
Not sure how big this is or whether it has any legs but it's worth watching.

The other site referenced (http://mypetjawa.mu.nu/)

Probably not big enough to trump the economic mess but interesting to say the least. Not surprising, but interesting. DemocRATS don’t get punished for breaking the law.

Me too. Sounds like Axelrod is releasing a Palin attack ad through one of his surrogates. If so that’s illegal.

IF it's true, then David Axelrod has broken some laws....not that anyone in the MSM will notice or care but it could get interesting.

Details are still sketchy right now.

They’ve already added this at Ace of Spades:

Correction: The latest is that the law does not seem to require disclaimers naming the producers/sponsors of an internet ad if it was placed for free and not for fee. As it seems to have just been placed on YouTube in the normal course of things (that is, people from the firm just uploading it without paying YouTube), it doesn’t look like this is outright illegal.

As far as that part goes, at least.

That's what I thought. And I don't think that very often. The person who wrote it has real obfuscation talent, should be working for the gubmint.

At least this post didn’t have that silly “ELECTION OVER” tag in the title. How many times have we seen that the past two weeks and for nothing.

If this is another larrysinclair/troopergate/Obama is a Borg post its going to suck badly.

I hope the site you linked is planning to insure that a MAJOR media outlet gets it going and not just a fax from a Kinko's in Texas if you know what I mean.

Well I hope it's got some serious legs because I remember waking up Monday Morning about Obambi’s secret meeting in Iraq only to have it fizzle in the media new cycle.

The MSM will gloss over it as much as they can as they do everything.

I can't wait to see what it is when I wake up tomorrow though.

From what I can see, there’s “Big News” coming, but no allusion to what it is, other than some sort of video.

Axelrod, Obama’s Campaign Manager, is colluding with an advertising firm to smear Sarah Palin via Youtube and and attempting to make it look some “average joe” out in America is doing it.

Expect the lies about book banning and no outlawing Abortions to be featured, such ads will no doubt be picked up by M(essiah)NBC and the other usual suspects.

Why are we so slow on the uptake on these things? Why must we always play catch up?

It is a “heads up” on these things, there is a collusion going on with the Dems and some smear merchants.

Maybe I am looking too much into this but wouldn’t it have been better to break the story AFTER they released the ads??

That way it would get media play from the MSM and THEN the story would break.

If you break the story now, they can just not run the ads.

Probably not illegal, but lame. By sniffing this out at least this avenue will be closed to Axeldud.

What’s next? Claiming that Sarah Palin once decapitated a baby polar bear and drank its blood?

There was a blatant example today. Newsweak via ABC had a piece on the number of cars owned by the McCains and the Obamas. It had to include Cindy because if it didn’t John only owns two. Pathetic.

Anyone hear the financial guru Bob Brinker tonight? Savage attacks on Palin and McCain, ridiculing and repeating blatant lies.

Then a guy called in from AK to attempt to set a few of the records straight. Brinker was yelling at him, wouldn't let him talk, laughing, ridiculing Sarah and AK. Never heard anything like it. Absolutely embarrassing to listen even. Their hatred is eating them alive.

I’ve never heard of Mr. Brinker Hattie, but the story is pretty similar across some media outlets.

And what gets me is, she has never done a single thing to those people, never passed a law that oppressed them, never supported a regulation that destroyed their businesses.

It seems that Governor Palin’s mere existence is enough to enrage some folks, and that to me is a disturbing vista, Gov Palin is alot like everyday folks, do they hate us as well?

Yes, they hate us too. For months they thought this would be a blow out. Day after day they kept telling us how the messiah was the answer to everything. They are angry they have to spend lots of money to win this election and fear it will not be a mandate.

They also told us everyone hates Bush and would therefore vote Dem, no matter who it was.
