Obama Campaign to Re-Launch as Tax Exempt Group [You Now Will Pay More for BO's Agenda]
Politico ^ | 1/18/13 | GLENN THRUSH, REID J. EPSTEIN and BYRON TAU

Posted on 01/18/2013 3:52:45 AM PST by SoFloFreeper

President Barack Obama’s remaining campaign apparatus will relaunch Sunday as a tax-exempt group to support his second term agenda, a senior Democrat familiar with the plans confirms to POLITICO.

The new organization will be separate from the Democratic National Committee, with Obama’s 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina serving as the national chair of the group.

The effort will begin on Sunday, the day the president is formally sworn in to his second term, as Obama campaign staff and volunteers gather at the Washington Hilton for an event dubbed the Obama Legacy Conference.

The formation of the group will make Messina the de facto political director for Obama, and is an implicit rejection of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, an Obama outsider not close to the president, as the party’s operational leader.

Who says nothing good comes from a bad thing? We got rid of Debbie Washerwoman.

IMHO, this is a dangerous thing they are doing. Way too much chance for financial skullduggery. Especially since this will be a non-profit. I’m assuming a 501(c)4.

Sooo......Lemme see.....

(1) Crocodile Barbie didn't make the cut...

And...
(2) All the extreme animals & media snarks on the campaign team are pretty sure that King Hussein's ideas won't be able to fly on their own merits...

Ergo....
(3) The long-suspected and highly vaunted "Permanent Campaign Mode" is now completely out of the closet...

****************

Just think--
...Stephanie Cutter... Axelrod...

All those dark-n-very-scary clowns...
....Touting the Emperor's New Clothes every day....

Pass the popcorn...

Is this legal????????

Not that it matters to Obama, but I thought after the election the campaign was supposed to break up, and is it legal to transfer funds already taken as campaign donations to a non-profit?

Their plan is becoming more clear. In the next couple months they are going to do a massive propaganda blitz that will be Hitleresque in nature. Smear, demonize, and try to make gun owners, NRA, Congresscritters that are pro 2nd amendment out to be monsters.

If the Congress does not go along with Obama, he will move to the EO route and we know that will lead to confiscation.

Obviously this is the reason that he had the federal agencies he has named to enforce registration, deputized. Those same agencies were the ones buying all that ammo over the past months.

He WILL confiscate guns. He would rather force Congress to sign a bill, but he is prepared to act without them.

Now all that makes it clear Sandy Hook was not as it is being told.

In other news, there is no confirmation whether Jim “Martin Bormann” Messina will be called Party Secretary or not. Obama, of course, has “Fuhrer” locked up.

Sounds to me like he’s setting up his own, cult-of-personality based political party. He obviously feels he’s too big for the Dems; it’s hard to imagine that he believes they’re a restraining influence on him, but he does seem to be convinced that some of them stand in his way.

It is true that people actually didn’t vote for the Dems in the last election, but for Obama, so he’s decided to skip the middle man and throw off any pretense of being just a normal part of our political system.

I fail to see how this can be a qualifying non-profit, but since he controls the IRS, I guess he can do whatever he wants.

Yeah, but the media said we were PARANOID to worry about all those ammo purchases.

Sounds like a place where Soros, Buffet and all of Obamas cronies could wash taxpayer money.

Corporate protection fund.

Nice business you’ve got there. It would be a shame if it was regulated and made illegal. Here’s a web site you should check out if you care about your business.

Capiche?

It would be a good time for the house to stop signing off on those continuing resolutions that are funding the government.

The plan, IMHO, is very clear. This is the Agenda-21 president.

Agenda-21, the stealthy movement to take away property rights from individuals and "give" it to the collective. It's happening all over at the local level; this president is now tying in some ends at a higher level.

This new Propaganda arm of the Regime is for one purpose only:

To convince the American people that the country needs a THIRD TERM for the Communist-in-Chief.

Bet the farm.

The National Socialists are going for broke on this. They’ve got 4 years to destroy this country and make it into a defacto dictatorship. Foreign money will be flying through this non-profit. So will the money of the “preferred” domestic entities like big multinationals.

All paying tribute to the new regime. The goal is to move fast and overwhelm the system. And the useful idiots will cheer it along all the way. The Republicans are so unprepared for this they will fold like a cheap suit. The socialist sense the Republicans are in disarray and weak. This is their best shot for a permant takeover of government.

It’s up to the grass roots now to take the country back. An extremely tall order and a long fight.

Very good analysis. I’m sure foreign money will be flooding through this new “nonprofit” and it will all be virtually impossible to trace.

I also agree with you on the speed factor. He’s moving very quickly and very openly, and paradoxically, this is one of the things that makes it so hard for people to take it seriously and get as alarmed as they should be. We thought we’d have more time to prepare our defense, so to speak, but all of a sudden it’s upon us.

The story says tax-exempt, which would be a 501(c)3.

So when did considerations of morality ever effect this crew? Ethics are alien to many Democrats, since they think they can get away with anything.

501(c)3 organizations cannot do anything political. Churches are 501(c)3 organizations. This is why everyone gets upset when preachers talk politics from the pulpit. Theoretically the church’s 501(c) designation could be pulled for that.

501(c)4 organizations, on the other hand, can be political. The various Tea Party organizations are 501(c)4. There are very strict reporting requirements for a 501(c)4. Much more narrow and strict than a 501(c)3.

I fully expect Organizing For America to be the most corrupt organization nobama has. Lot of ways to funnel dirty money to his friends.

It's all about money laundering.

Obama wasn't worth $1 million when he took office.

He'll leave office worth somewhere near $100 million or more.

And, in modern America, this won't be a scandal.

Forget the grassroots. Its going to take blades of grass, or actually the rifle hiding behind each one.

The ego in this little man-child is large that anyone can imagine. He only does what makes him feel good and loved by others. It is a big cult.

There sure are a lot of leftist turds in this toilet. Gibbs - the jabbering idiot from Planet X; Cutter or Cutler or whatever, another blithering coverup idiot; and the other leftist Obamamongers of the Left.

We need to organize a counter to this group and help flush them down the toilet of history.

The dems and media have been successful at labeling anyone who disagrees with obama as racists. They’ve painted themselves into a corner. Now they can never oppose him.
