Is a donor scandal about to rattle the Obama campaign?
Hotair ^

Posted on 10/06/2012 4:56:03 PM PDT by chessplayer

As Katie Pavlich posted on October 5, the Obama campaign is about to get rocked by a fundraising scandal involving “taxes and foreign donors.” Pavlich wrote that since “billionaires like George Soros support him and considering Hollywood is partially controlled by European money, naturally Obama has foreign support. Obama’s economic philosophy is also similar to European style resdistribution of wealth, which is why French President Francois Hollande supports him.”

This development comes after Obama raised $181 million dollars for the month of September. As Allapundit noted yesterday, that’s a lot of donors. If there wasn’t anything to hide then why is the campaign trying to put a kibosh on the story.

Back in April, I stumbled upon a video that recorded an anomaly with respect to donating to Obama’s campaign online. As the man in the video donates online, he notices that “the Obama campaign does not have the universal 3-digit security code feature for credit card transactions on their website. It appears that anyone, anywhere can donate to President Obama’s re-election campaign, all you need is a credit card number.”

He tried the same thing with the Romney campaign, but the donation was denied since it wasn’t verified.

Why was there no donor scandal in 2008? Nothing has changed.

Please.

Everybody knew that Soros laundered hundreds of million through untraceable prepaid debit cards to the Obama campaign in 2008.

Nobody in state-controlled media cared then, and nobody in state-controlled media will care now.

As a matter of fact, they applaud it.

Well it turns out all those good liberals from the 60s & 70s who infest the media would be happily supportive of a corrupt one party state. I guess thats the ‘better way’ they were always talking about.

The money is coming from that qe3 that is going to the banks, the banks are kicking some of that 40,000,000,000 a month back to barack in a very sneaky way. Not sneaky enough though. 40 billion in 120 million back. Win Win for the Banks and Barack.

The Obama campaign was questioned about their $750 million in donations in 2008. They investigated themselves and announced that all the donations were under the reportable limit so no problems. They have been investigating themselves ever since then and have never found any problems. You got a problem with that? Let me refer you to the Chicago thugs that protect Obama.

I agree with all previous posters. This is a non event since he cakewalked on this in 2008. That is why the law should read such that contributions must be made to local political entities by personal check drawn from accounts from local bank accounts. This is so easy to regulate but the laws are a ruse. They are only there to give the appearance of propriety. The rules were written by politicians for politicians and McCain-Feingold only made it worse. Thank goodness Citizens United rebalanced the scales. The ultimate donor restriction is -—> No viable person or entity being fully resident in the United States of America shall contribute more than $100 per calendar year to any candidate for political office in the United States or other political entity or viable entity involved even marginally in any political activity.

I believe I read a report on this same issue during the Obama 2008 campaign.

And they ended up with all sorts of donations from Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, etc.

There was also a semi-scandal starting up about anonymous donations originating in GAZA. But all of it disappeared down the memory hole.

I agree with your statement. However, it has been my experience that God, in His wisdom and in His time will require the wrong doing to be atoned. A perp walk for the folks would be good but, I will leave it to God and His infinite wisdom to met out justice. The wrong doing will punish itself. Truth is always the victor.

Exactly. This same thing was proven to be going on the last time around with Obama. It went nowhere. There are certainly plenty of threads about in on FR back in the achieves. I remember it well.

This was an issue back in 2008. The Republicans knew this was happening and didn’t do anything to prepare for this election for the same thing to happen again. Just like the military votes, know there is a problem, but nothing changes. Why isn’t Romney and crew talking about Obama donations and the lack of the three digit security code when Obama boasts about the dollars they hauled in...just sickens me. Where is Boner in all of this...crickets chirping...

Boehner is busy facilitating for a screwy debt deal in the lame duck session, while whining about it when the cameras are around. Teary Boehner can’t possibly worry about the election issues, mostly because he couldn’t care who wins.

“I will leave it to God and His infinite wisdom to met out justice. The wrong doing will punish itself. Truth is always the victor.”

I agree that we should trust God and pray for wisdom to see his plan for our lives. Dietrich Bonhoeffer accepted his fate as God’s will and died as a martyr for Truth.

There is a time however, when more than just prayer is required for the Truth to achieve victory.

What would have happened at Lexington-Concord if the colonials had a prayer meeting, and never unclasped their hands and picked up some tools to fight tyranny?

Rule of law has become a joke in this country, and the criminals in charge are no longer being held legally accountable for their misdeeds.

There was a time when our forefathers had to make one of the hardest decisions. That is, when is it time to no longer rely solely on prayer and the system in place to ensure that justice is served and people remain free?

Boehner, like John Roberts, and Sarah Palin, apparently has some dark episode in his past, for which he is being blackmailed into zombiedom.

I posted this a while back on a thread. Bears repeating:

When Obama ran in 2008, his two Palestinian roommates from college ran his internet site for donations to his campaign. The donations were from alleged “small donors”, and none of the donors were kept track of, according to election law requirements, so no one knew, but many suspected, that many if not most of these donors were from foreign countries, primarily Arab countries. In other words, illegal donations to his campaign from foreign sources. The same is undoubtedly happening this time; someone should look into how Obama is collecting donations on-line this time around.

Now, the Arabs know they are making illegal donations to his campaign, Obama knows they know, in other words they could blow the whistle on Obama at any time as to how Obama has been collecting donations to his campaign. Thus, they can and undoubtedly are blackmailing Obama for the last four years, and for the next four years if he wins again. The Arabs have undoubtedly subsidized Obama for years now to keep him in office, as many see him as peripherally one of their own, especially with his name, Barak “Hussein” Obama. Just as long as Obama keeps marching to their orders on all things Muzzie, such as Obama’s stance on Israel, Gitmo prisoners, public pro-Muzzie statements, passing of our taxpayer money to Muzzie states, pro-Arab business deals, anti-Israel public statements, generous immigration policy towards Arabs seeking to emigrate to the U.S., treating Jihad terrorism attacks as “criminal cases”, going after Christians in U.S. while doing CAIR’s bidding on Islamic matters, need I go on?

In other words, our President has been in the past, currently is, and will be in the future, blackmailed by the Muzzies to do his bidding, which isn’t a hard stance for Obama to adhere to as he is on their side to begin with. So, a disaster for our country, a true Manchurian Prez and candidate, who will get a pass by the Dem left and the MSM (same thing), while our country is being destroyed before our very eyes. And the sheeple know not what they are about to do, if the demographics have changed that much, and will vote Obama back in. There is only one thing that can thwart this, and that is a massive turnout of the true Americans left in this country on election day. It is a dire necessity for everyone to do their civic duty on November 6th and vote this Manchurian President out of office and into the rubbish heap of history

"the Obama campaign does not have the universal 3-digit security code feature..."

This also helps prevent disenfranchisement of people using stolen credit cards.

"Media would ignore this (donor scandal) just like Solyndra and F&F."

Precisely. The more millions Obama takes in, the more millions in the pockets of the corrupt media for advertising in every type of mass and personal voter contact communications humanly possible.

Even down to the tiny little ads we're seeing all over the internet, stuck in obscure corners, running for months now, just a photo of Obama and "how to register"....nothing more.

The media will do nothing to kill its golden goose, Obama, believe me.

The complacent GOP will do nothing to irk the media...so, voila!.....we have continuing "donor scandals" as an accepted thing now in presidential elections.
