Whoa...if illegal donors had any connection to the just-breaking indictment of Russian spies in Houston, it would be the mother of all scandals.

Many of those donations have allegedly come from overseas and may be in violation of federal election laws.

How is this different than what he did in '08?

This time around, Obama has an opponent.

With untouchable finances.

This time really is different. It will be interesting.

Money pouring in from Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood brethren??? Obama is dirty from his head to his toes!!! And...he stood carelessly by, along with Hillary Clinton, while our Ambassador to Libya, two Navy seals and an intelligence officer was slaughtered without USA protection in Libya. The man is a traitor IMHO!!! And....so is Hillary Clinton!!

Wonder how much illegal contributions the ChiCom’s are donating this year.

I've been around here a long time.

I remember all the times, all the scandals that were going to finish off Clinton. Selling satellite technology to the Chinese for campaign donations, the security breeches involving Riady and Chung, the bombing of the Chinese embassy, Vince Foster and Ron Brown, and on and on.

We have no friends in the media, or in the courts. No clean friends who aren't hiding their own skeletons.

They can be as dirty as they want to be.

Yes!

I'll admit I get a little tired of people on our side whining over and over, “ohhh well, nothin’ will come of it.”

Open you eyes and look around! We went years with obama being practically untouchable. Now he can't get volunteers to fill his stadiums. Chairs are sitting out on lawns all over town. UniVision is spelling out Fast and Furious in perfect spanish. Issa is still not done with Holder. You Tube comments are more and more anti-obama. IT DOES add up. Stop saying nothing will come of it. Every story, every shred of truth, every small discovery brings us closer to unmasking this fraud and discrediting the lib media.

People here noted in 2008 that there were a suspiciously high number of credit card donations coming into the Obama campaign that were in uneven dollar amounts, such that it looked like they had gone through a currency translation, and were therefore likely to be foreign donors. There are only so many ex-pats.

Hopefully someone really got on this early this time around.

These skunks have been taking foreign donations same as in 2008. Via credit card over the internet. These foreign origin donations are easy to reject if you set your credit card processing software the legal and correct way which is what McCain did in 2008. Of course Obama did none of this. So an internet CC donation originating in China or Arabia is accepted by the Obama campaign

You’re right. However, there is such a thing called a “game changer”.

I love stories like this because, after last night’s debate, Obama’s lies have been exposed to upwards of 70 million people. This will get attention.

All I ask is that Obama is exposed for the fraud he is, and I’m not speaking of birtherism.

My next “ask” is that Clinton be treated honestly when the real historical perspective is released.

I’m hoping the phone lady is singing, and you keep your eye on Mullah Omar. ;o)

I think they are getting kick backs on gov money they give away..

Exactly. You just have to sense that this is connected to all of those unaccounted $BILLIONS from the stimulus that were pumped into “green companies” through 0bama bundlers. With Joe Biden in charge of keeping track of the money it wouldn’t be difficult to skim $100s of millions as kickbacks sent to the 0bama 2012 campaign.


Speaking of $billions, does anyone know whatever happened to that $20 Billion dollars that Obama extorted out of BP over the Gulf Oil Leak?

Anyone who’s been paying attention since 2008 knows that Zippy has been taking tainted money. He was getting illegal donations in 2008, so why would we expect that to change?

My suspicion is that his puppetmaster is no longer protecting him. Though I’m not sure if it’s because he has served his purpose and is no longer needed or because he has failed. Zippy was kept on a leash because the puppetmaster had plenty of dirt on him, including the fact that he is ineligible to serve as POTUS. Now that he is no longer useful, the protection is slipping away.

I’m looking for plenty of October surprises. Illegal donations. Drugs and other medical history. Past relationships. School transcripts. Travel records. Passport. Maybe even the real BC.

Agree.
Sarah’s black hair - unbecoming.
Can’t imagine what’s up with that dark color - - -

Thought I also spotted just the very slightest
facial change - can’t describe it.
Think she has lots more years before those ‘adjustments.’

I think most of us can handle her upcoming aging appearance - especially if we see her with regularity.

They are offering to triple match any contributions from their phone solicitations. This is how they hide the contributions. Divide the illegal contributions by allocating them to small individual contributions.

If this is an illegal action exposed, we could begin impeachment! I
After Clinton, the only way Congress would try to impeach a President is if the President's party reached a consensus that he had to go and he refused to resign gracefully.

Nixon was an example of a President who resigned gracefully when his own party demanded it. Clinton is an example of a President who still had his own party's support.

I can't think of any possible situation where the Dems in Congress would abandon Obama so totally that they would be willing to Impeach him, and the Republicans certainly won't try it again.

If you shoot at a king (or President), you'd best not miss.

- I wonder what ever happened the daring person that was able to run up and slap a large juicy fruit pie right in George Soros’ face?

- It was at a radical elite powerbroker “Open Society” conference Soros had set up and/or sponsored - Soros was sitting next to several others and the cameras were rolling and caught it all.

- As a young Jew during WWII George Soros was excited and thankful to be able to work with the NAZIS and to loot and lead millions of Jews of all ages to the ovens.

- In 2008 George Soros is seen in videos and photographs sitting not far from Barack Hussein Obama Junior at a democrat fundraiser of millionaires and billionaires in California where “The One” said this about flyover country Americans:

“.....clinging to their guns and religion.....”

- I understand George Soros’ son is a chip off the old Godless block.

- Where is Wild Bill Donovan when we really need him?

I’m really afraid for Romney after that debate; he really needs to watch his back now! The folks we think Obama
is in league with may feel they’ve advanced the end game to a point of world wide chain reaction and a late blow like Romney could bring a stop to their plans.

A lot of people will not stop at violence to advance their notions of UTOPIA. I think Christ “nailed” that point perfectly(yes note the hidden analogy) when he said “The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, the desperate men take it by force.”

The Utopians of Christ’s day, so desperate to see their vision realized on Earth, “nailed” the true Kingdom of Heaven to the cross!

I think the scandal is the same as the last election Presidential election cycle: the Obama campaign donation website has turned off all address, name, and origin verification.

You can provide any valid credit card number, and the donation will be processed. It doesn't matter if you have the correct name or correct address.

And although you can determine the origin of a credit card account (i.e. is it a US account, or outside the US) and block foreign donations, they don't.

This means that massive amounts of money can be laundered into the Obama campaign, if someone is simply willing to point and click repeatedly.

Of course, foreign donations are a violation of federal election laws. But, disabling the name/address verification means that limits on individual donations can be evaded by purchasing pre-paid debit cards and using those to "donate".

Again, the same thing happened last election cycle. And no one outside the conservative blogosphere cared.

I agree and immediately heard several comments on her hair after last appearance on Fox. But the last few times she’s appeared, her hair has been unbecoming. I think she might be letting her daughter Willow do her hair (she is or was in beauty school)... seems like the only plausible explanation.... But Sarah needs to tell her no mas, hun, lol.

I love Sarah, but people need to be able to focus on her WORDS, and not be distracted by going “what the crap?” Staring at her hair the whole time, lol.

Romney hit him with Solyndra and several other names of his loser "investments" of our money and he mentioned it at least one other time more quickly.

One of those times Romney added in a quick "your donors" or something like it and Zippy gave him a startled look.

It was quick and not repeated. I wish we hadn't deleted the recording so I could go back and get the exact wording, but it's too late and I wouldn't have time to go through the whole hour and a half anyway, but I know I heard it.

There could also be another donor scandal with Russians, but I'm not up on that YET.

2 Brothers in GAZA were bragging about how much money they Bundled for Obama in the 2008 election.

Those donations were listed on election paperwork as ‘GA- making people think that it came from the state of Georgia, USA.

The actual overseas telephone number also listed gave the story away.

The USA FEC did absolutely nothing about it. Their malfeasance needs to be addressed.

I certainly hope that Romney has a huge number of people ready to fill the Justice Department with fresh new intelligence & kick out & indict many of the current occupants.
