An Inside Look at Obama’s Organizing for America
hotair.com ^ | 2/1/2010 | Anita MonCrief

Posted on 05/08/2010 12:33:42 PM PDT by mojitojoe

Blogger and activist Carol Greenberg approached me recently with an exclusive look at her work investigating Organizing for America. I was impressed with Carol’s investigative reporting initiative and realized that America needed to see the “Obama Machine” in action. I began working with her on unraveling the truth behind OFA.

Obama’s “permanent campaign” Organizing for America has managed to skirt campaign finance laws while continually providing the unprecedented “opportunity to help the president.” Countless emails fill boxes across America with the sender name President Barack Obama. Organizing for America has kept a high profile and played a key role in the healthcare debate. Obama’s managed to turn his extraordinary campaign model into a post-election campaign/organizing website where OFA honed their method of using the internet to reach progressives to push through his increasingly unpopular agenda.

During Barack Obama’s campaign he used a similar tool and website called “Obama for America.” Utilizing the skills he learned at ACORN as a community organizer, Obama was able to acquire the “highest office in the land”. In an election night quote from November of 2008, Obama addresses a crowd who voted for “Hope” and “Change.”

There is more information at this site:

One of the big players in OFA is Joan Axelrod Lehrich, the sister of David Axelrod. She is a self-employed learning disabilities consultant. Joan is also a Group Administrator on My.BarackObama.com, specifically representing her local neighborhood in, ta da!, Arlington, MA! (You'll have to register in order to view that link.) Joan is active in the Arlington Democratic Town Committee. Her only campaign contribution on record for 2008 is found on the Huffington Post in the amount of $356 to support Obama. The Strauss's have been far more generous with their money!

What's really interesting to me from viewing property records is that Joan Axelrod Lehrich and Paul and Ann Strauss live only 2.4 miles apart! Do they know each other? My instincts say it's very likely that they do. Coincidentally(?), if you register, and then visit the Arlington, MA Neighborhood that Joan moderates on My.BarackObama.com, you'll discover someone called "Paul" in Arlington who lists Joan Lehrich as a "Friend." There is a picture of Paul, but I can't say with certainty that this is our Paul R. Strauss.

These bastards have assembled one hell of a fighting machine and on a lot of fronts.

What is amazing to me is the connections that reach so far back in time, the Chicago connections and relationships etc., everything is so intertwined.

This entire coup has been in the making for a lot of years, IMO.

Oh hell yes it has. This fall, the elections, will be key. I believe it will determine the fate of the Constitution and the Republic.

I am on the OFA mailing list, just to see what lies they are spreading. I wonder how many of their email addresses are also not “active” in “fighting for Obama.”

Recently an email asked me to be the first in my [town] to send money for something. Well, if I am the first in this heavily democratic area of MD, then he is not getting much response from his hordes of followers.

Either way this election goes, if we have one, won't matter. Even if we win, we'll never get rid of these people or their ilk, we'll be fighting them forever and one day it'll end up in war.

I believe it is at a point that we have to realize we cannot coexist with these people in a free nation, and no, I don't have the answer, at least that I'll post here.

That’s an impressive investigation.

The Baraqqi organization is REALLY powerful.

That’s why no matter how poorly things are going in the country, he can win in 2012 with a plurality if a nationwide third party candidate develops (watch the Soros $$).

I think the Baraqqis can get 35% of the vote no matter what.

“The only difference between Obama and Hitler is that Obama is taller.”

WHO AM I?
I was born in one country, raised in another.. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women.

I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me. My mother died at an early age from cancer.

Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

My birth records were sketchy and no one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs & didn’t follow christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.

I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.

That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and I embarked on a new career.

I wrote a book about my strugges growing up. It was clear to those who read my memoirs that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.

I became active in local politics in my 30’s then with help behind the scenes, I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40s. They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything. That reinforced my conceit.

I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history and no experience in leading a single organization. Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances. This bolstered my ego. At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign policy. I was very critical of my country in the last war and seized every opportunity to bash my country.

But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country’s economy. I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better and every poor person would be fed & housed for free.

I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess. It was the free market, banks & corporations. I decided to start making citizens hate them and if they were envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

I called mine “A People’s Campaign” and that sounded good to all people.

I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics & was able to gain widespread popular support.

I knew that, if I merely offered the people ‘hope’ , together we could change our country and the world.

So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities” like the Jews. My true views were not widely known & I needed to keep them unknown, until after I became my nation’s leader.

I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined these people I associated with.

I’m glad they didn’t. Then I became the most powerful man in the world. And the world learned the truth.

Who am I? .........

ADOLPH HITLER!
Who did you think I was talking about?

I agree, the hatred is too great, the cultural divide too wide. It gets worse each year. Our Republic is under attack.

Here’s some more info on what they do:

One of the many ways that the election of Barack Obama as president has echoed that of John F. Kennedy is his use of a new medium that will forever change politics. For Mr. Kennedy, it was television. For Mr. Obama, it is the Internet.

“Were it not for the Internet, Barack Obama would not be president. Were it not for the Internet, Barack Obama would not have been the nominee,” said Arianna Huffington, editor in chief of The Huffington Post.

Mr. Obama used the Internet to organize his supporters in a way that would have in the past required an army of volunteers and paid organizers on the ground, Mr. Trippi said.

“The tools changed between 2004 and 2008. Barack Obama won every single caucus state that matters, and he did it because of those tools, because he was able to move thousands of people to organize.”

Mr. Obama’s campaign took advantage of YouTube for free advertising. Mr. Trippi argued that those videos were more effective than television ads because viewers chose to watch them or received them from a friend instead of having their television shows interrupted.

“The campaign’s official stuff they created for YouTube was watched for 14.5 million hours,” Mr. Trippi said. “To buy 14.5 million hours on broadcast TV is $47 million.”

There has also been a sea change in fact-checking, with citizens using the Internet to find past speeches that prove a politician wrong and then using the Web to alert their fellow citizens.

Ohaha has already socked away huge slush funds:

(a) 80% of the trillion dollar stim is unspent and under his control......that he is hoarding to finance endangered Dems.

(b) June 9, 2009 Obama announced, "Several financial institutions are set to pay back $68B to taxpayers." Taxpayers assumed that would be returned to the general funds from whence it had come .......in order to pay down the debt. The truth, however, is that the money returned is finding new life as what amounts to a Treasury Dept-controlled slush fund....to finance candidates.

NOTE COS Rahm Emanuel also controls Treasury activites. Emanuel---the one behind Ohaha's win and the Dem takeover of Congress---has a lot riding on the 2010-12 elections. I would also conjecture that ex-Wall Streeter Emanuel was behind the $$$Billion Dow glitch last week that was traced to Chicago.

(c) The first four years of ObamaCare is to amass $$billions. Healthcare does not kick in til 2014. (Another gimmick pushes much of the legislation’s costs off the federal budget and onto the private sector by requiring individuals and employers to purchase health insurance....or pay a hefty fine or go to jail. Only illegals are exempt from this provision.

Should I be surprised that a big-wig at OFA is in charge of short-buses?
