Media would ignore this just like Solyndra and F&F.
Why was there no donor scandal in 2008? Nothing has changed.
As Katie Pavlich posted on October 5, the Obama campaign is about to get rocked by a fundraising scandal involving taxes and foreign donors.
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.

Rattle? To be rattled that would mean that Osama Obama & Pals recognize that there's a “higher authority” than themselves.Rattled? Never.

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.

A question; does the FEC do anything about this stuff? Do they do anything?
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.

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.

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 Obamas re-election campaign, all you need is a credit card number.
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.

With Benghazigate and Fast and Furious, where people died, not even on the radar of most of the public, why would anyone expect another 0bama scandal to even cause a ripple?

"the Obama campaign does not have the universal 3-digit security code feature..."
This also helps prevent disenfranchisement of people using stolen credit cards.
“....Obama campaign is about to get rocked by a fundraising scandal....”
If an obvious eligibility issue could not touch Obama, then no scandal can.

"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.
thread (and crickets-chirping republicans) BUMP!
