"On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million."
Man, that's a lot of $$$ for one month. His donations have been down up to that point. I wonder what he did that was so special in order to get the $$$ flowing again.
"Man, I hope this is true"? (the correctly punctuated version)
Nice objectivity this website has. Pathetic. By the way, stock market is up, unemployment is down. There are concrete indicators that Obama's plan is working. Yet you clowns want him out for a guy who has given us no indication of what his plan is and swears he's not going to cut anything except PBS. Pathetic.
I'm new to this website. I'm an Independent, non-Conservative (moderate) voter, but like to get information from a variety of sources.
That being said, look at the title of this site....That should give you a clue as to it's political bias, if there is one. I don't expect it to be objective, or slanted towards Obama (like many other sites).
Let's assume your assertions are true for a moment. What does any of that have to do with this article?
"According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecured accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws."
That is the story, not your support of Obama. Next time, you may want to check out Huffpo, or MSNBC. They would be more inclined to have stories you agree with.
Have a nice day.
Possibly a large part of the scandal money is from muslim countries, like he received in 2008. Apparently millions came illegally from muslim countries, and the investigation was never followed through on. Thank God this time someone is actually looking into such disgusting fraud. Too many are too trusting, not being able to imagine Obama would be that much of a crook.
Meanwhile in other news. Romney solicits money while in Israel, England and Poland from non-US citizens and political groups.
I will be shocked, SHOCKED! to discover that taxpayer stimulus money was used to buy pre-paid credit cards that made anonymous donations to 0bama. Yeah. Were EBT cards used too?
Nothing will be done. The man wasn't vetted. His cronyism is overlooked. His law breaking is continually overlooked. Foreign cash has been dumping into his coffers since 2007 and it was overlooked. Face the facts folks. People are worshiping at the alter of Obama and not the alter of Christ.
I had a hunch this was true back in 2008. With the amount of money he brought in it just doesn't make sense any other way.
Well, as the article points out, Obama's campaign did the same thing in 2008
with no real consequences. We should expect the same behavior and outcome
this time. He has been bought and paid for by malevolent, foreign sources. The
only October SURPRISE here would be if something *actually* stuck to this prince
This will not "move the needle" as many here have said in regards to Obama answering to this illegal act but what it may do will increase donations to Romney...so let's donate a few bucks!
"Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story."
I bet so..
Whoa! Looks like they upped the benefits to Egypt so they could get back it back as donations...
"oh my toto, we're still not in Kansas anymore. but look, over there, there's a light over there on the horizon."
Sorry, that ain't gonna stick in my opinion. There would have to be a tape of him and Michael Jackson playing doctor with children to make a dent in the Teflon president. The media would cover that up too or blame it on MJ.
The Obama administration has been in so many scandals that they are white noise now. Giving assault weapons to Mexican warlords that subsequently used them to murder a US border agent barely moved the needle.
"At the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama-Biden effort was hit with a similar scandal."
We all remember that scandal and how it upended the campaign, surely. What? You don't?
Is anybody getting worried that the Prezzy might decide to go into Libya to try and distract attention from these new possible scandals???
When you said "lowdown", I thought you were going to talk about the "Down Low" club articles Dr. Corsi has started to publish. :-)
No surprise....he is favored by so many overseas that share his desire for a demished America and a new Marxist World Order. I guarantee you he has beed raising money from oversea donors for years and under the legal radar! This could be very very big!! Shocking the Obama Campaign trying to keep the story from going public!! Most Transparent Adm in History!!! Well if you live on Mars.
Campaign finance irregularities?Who cares. All politicians are guilty of that.Better be something more.or there will be another Tucker Carlson disaster.
Oh I am so hoping this will be the October Surprise instead of the fact that Romney whooped his Ass in the debate. This would seal the deal....You go Non-Mainsteam News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love it and I am waiting on Pins and Needles to see what happens to that fake SOB!!!!!
And right below the article of trash is what? Mitt Romneys Official Site Ad. Obama and Biden accept contributions from the 47%. Remember those Americans? The ones Mitt hates? Some of the 47% have unsecured or prepaid debit/credit cards. Duh Dude. No income=no credit=no secured cards. Or is the math too difficult to figure out?
Try to explain to me why someone would donate $22.86 on a pre-paid credit card. Does your math skills understand why that really is? And why in 2008, $300 million was obtained via non-traceable pre-paid credit cards. Did they cash in their food stamps to buy tons of pre-paids? Do these same unsecured card owners also not have a photo ID, which may keep them from their main goal in life of voting?
Silly article. Look. Millions of people give to the Obama campaign. A few billionaires take care of Romney plus a few regular people. These few (the Adelsons, the Koch Brothers) cover the real bills. I think a candidate that receives millions from millions of regular people is more credible than one who owes a 100 million to two or three people. What will Romney owe to those cronies when the bill becomes due? Think about it. And before you answer--do your research.
Before we can think about it, we have to stop laughing. Are you the one who does that comedy skit with Jeff Dunham? I love those threesome skits you do with Jeff and that Jalapeno on a stick.
I have done my research. I have determined, you are a mind numbed brainwashed Marxist drone, who warrants no more of my time.
The media will not hold their beloved Barack accountable. They will not only refuse to cover this criminal behavior, they will give the Obama campaign cover. They will launch own campaign to minimize the damage by downplaying its' significance and by attacking anyone bringing it up as racist, alarmist, hyper-partisan, ultra-right-wing, etc.
The RINO leadership will play dumb and will not even launch a feigned investigation.
For a refresher in Marxist Stream Media treachery, does anyone remember this quote by a former Democrat Presidential candidate?:
“My counsel advises me that there is no controlling, legal authority or case that says that there was any violation of law whatsoever in the manner in which I asked people to contribute to our re-election campaign…”
Who said this? I'll give you a hint, Buddhist Temple.
Was he ever charged or even aggressively questioned about it?
This was clearly an issue in 2008 and like everything else Obama does, it was buried. There was clear voter fraud in 2008 and McCain had firsthand knowledge of fraud in Wisconsin but chose to let it slide, perhaps in fear of being labeled a racist.
From the beginning of the 2008 campaign until now, Obama has been handled with kid gloves regarding anything that even appeared amiss. It's time to expose the corruption that runs rampant through everything he does.
Those of us from Illinois are used to (and sick of) the corrupt media, corrupt politicians, and corrupt atmosphere in Chicago. You're right. It's time to put a stop to it. We could never believe that the country would assume Barack Obama could be clean coming out of such a garbage pit as Chicago. Now everyone is finding out.
This happened in 2008, and nothing was ever done. They keep committing crimes, and no one stops them. It's as though they're above the law. Crimes are called policy with this bunch, whether it's murder, theft, or election fraud.
I was among those screaming about this in '08. Obama had $300 million in donations from untraceable pre-paid credit cards that Obama claimed was from the average citizen. McLame brushed it off as no big deal and nothing was made of it. How many average citizens do you know that go out and get a pre-paid credit card to donate to an election?
It looks like Obama thought he could get away with it again this year. New day, Mr President, different story. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on me.
If you believe your sky is falling, Chicken Barry, don't think it's a fairy tale. It really is falling.
I find it odd that he has so many small amount donors. The large portion of his supporters don't seem like the type to send in hundreds of dollars
I hope this is true too. Obama’s ship is listing to the side right now, taking on water.
Let’s fire a few more salvo’s into its side shall we?
For what it's worth, THIS might be the October surprise. This is from a commenter named 'Mike in Amman' in a debate thread from Ace of Spades:
"Forgive the off-topic, but there is supposed to be a major event here in Amman tomorrow. And estimated 20,000 Muslim Brotherhood members marching for the overthrow of the king, and an estimated 200,000 Jordanians counter-marching, with the police and military operating under the unspoken guideline that if that 200,000 wants to kick the crap out of the Muslim Brotherhood, the authorities will not intervene. Foreigners have been told to stay home, and even prepare for evacuation. We'll see what happens."

Keep an eye out for this story and say a prayer for Mike and all Americans in Jordan tonight. We can't count on this administration to provide them with any security.
Yep. He tried it once already getting money flowing from Gaza last time. He claims he sent it back, and nothing came of it. Wonder what the spin will be this time.
