Barack Obama Is The Same Lying Cheating Fraud He Was Back In ’08 With His Illegal Overseas Campaign Donations

October 22, 2012

Same old lying song, same old lying dance.  Obama is accepting campaign donations from foreigners.  Again.

CNBC earlier proved that “foreign-connected money” goes to Democrats by a wide margin.  So this isn’t really anything new:

Obama campaign accepted foreign Web donation — and may be hiding more

The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges.

Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens.

Walker said he used his actual street address in England but entered Arkansas as his state with the Schenectady, NY, ZIP code of 12345.

“When I did Romney’s, the payment got rejected on the grounds that the address on the card did not match the address that I entered,” he said. “Romney’s Web site wanted the code from the back of card. Barack Obama’s didn’t.”

In September, Obama’s campaign took in more than $2 million from donors who provided no ZIP code or incomplete ZIP codes, according to data posted on the Federal Election Commission Web site.

The Obama campaign said the FEC data was the result of “a minor technical error.”

“All the ZIP codes and numbers are real and can be verified,” spokesman Michael Czin said.

The Obama campaign’s apparent lack of safeguards makes it possible to violate the law, says a report released by the Government Accountability Institute, a Florida-based watchdog group.

The report found that one Obama site — Obama.com — gets almost half of its traffic from foreign computer addresses. The site directs users to an Obama donation page.

“We are not suggesting that just foreign traffic by itself is a problem,” said Peter Schweizer, president of the GAI. “But for a campaign that is very sophisticated in its fund-raising capabilities, they do not make one effort to try to even see or ask somebody to check a box that says they are a US citizen.”

Obama’s re-election campaign took in $130,867 from donors who provided no ZIP codes and $2 million from those with incomplete ZIPs in September.

That same month, Romney’s campaign recorded $2,450 from donors without ZIP codes and $2,500 from those with incomplete ZIPs.

Walker said it should have been clear to the Obama campaign’s computers that his donations came from a computer with a foreign IP address.

The Obama campaign says it “screens all credit-card contributions that originate from a foreign IP address” and requests proof of citizenship if questions arise.

But not only did Walker’s Obama donations go through, but he said he began receiving two to three e-mail solicitations a day to give more. The e-mails asked for $188 or more.

If Walker gave $188, his total contribution to Obama would be $198 — less than the $200 threshold at which campaigns have to identify the donor to the FEC.

“I have not had any e-mails asking for proof of identity,” Walker said.

The GAI report found the Obama campaign Web sites do not ask donors to provide their three-digit card-verification value, or CVV, numbers to ensure they are the legitimate holders of the card. Romney’s campaign asks for such information, which is considered a standard security measure.

One conduit for Obama donations is Obama.com, which was registered in 2008 to Robert Roche, an American who lives and works in China, where he owns an infomercial company.

Roche is also a bundler for the Obama campaign and was given a seat at the head table for a 2011 state dinner with the Chinese president

The GAI report said that the site registration was changed in 2010 to make it anonymous and that it was unclear whether Roche still owns it.

Roche’s mother in Chicago referred calls to the Obama campaign. The campaign declined to comment.

Oh, well.  You remember Obama’s hot mike moment where he promised the Russians that if they laid off him and helped him get reelected, he’d be “more flexible” to rat-sodomize America.  You know that Russia wants Obama to give them the American farm.  And if we are stupid enough to elect the fool, we’re stupid enough to give Russia the (last) farm, too.

If Campaign Donor Scandal Doesn’t ROCK Obama Campaign, It’s ONLY Because Mainstream Media Is Too Dishonest To Do It’s Job And Report It.

October 9, 2012

This should make you angry.  Mind you, a LOT of things the media has basically refused to report – such as the increasingly scandal and cover-up in the terrorist attack on the US compound in Libya that resulted in the murder of a US ambassador and several other Americans – that should make you angry.

Obama is raking in close to a billion dollars for his campaign.  While incredibly deceitfully presenting himself as the poor oppressed candidate fighting against the obscenely greedy corporate stooge Romney.  But when we find out that terrorist murderers such as Nidal Hasan can make contributions – no questions asked and all safeguards removed UNLIKE THE ROMNEY CAMPAIGN – people ought to start getting pissed off:

Is a donor scandal about to rattle the Obama campaign?
posted at 4:59 pm on October 6, 2012 by Matt Vespa

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.

Nidal Hasan…big Obama supporter

Donation successful!

Paul Bedard of The Washington Examiner wrote on October 4 that:

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 unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million. [$181 million]

At the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama-Biden effort was hit with a similar scandal. At the time, the Washington Post reported that the Obama campaign let donors use “largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor’s identity.”

The bottom line is this: a foreign donor can give to the Obama campaign without the full disclosure that is required on any HONEST OR LEGITIMATE CAMPAIGN SUCH AS MITT ROMNEY’S.  If you want to buy an Obama IS America flag at the Obama store, you’ve got to enter the security code on your credit card; if you are a foreign terrorist who just got through murdering Americans and you want to help make sure that Obama gets reelected so you won’t pay for your terrorism, you DON’T have to enter that security code.

The Obama campaign is specifically asking for donations for $190 in order to avoid the $200 threshold that involves more inspection.

You ought to be pissed.

Let me get back to the terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Libya.  When you find out that the Obama administration removed two security teams prior to the terrorist attack that the Obama administration covered-up by claiming it WASN’T a terrorist attack, and removed those teams even as the now-murdered American ambassador was BEGGING for more security, and when you find out that the Obama administration denied the requests to improve the chances of the ambassador and his staff being able to escape the attack that the Obama administration exposed the ambassador to in the first place, well, you can kind of understand why Obama now has to monkey with his campaign donations so that Nidal Hasan can give to Obama, can’t you?

Well, there’s more coming.  How about Obama being owned by a bundler with ties to the Chinese government?

Bombshell: Obama.com Owned by Bundler in Shanghai with Business Ties to Chinese Government
by Wynton Hall 8 Oct 2012, 5:14 AM PDT

In an explosive report set to send shockwaves through official Washington, the Government Accountability Institute (GAI) released a 108-page GAI investigation into the threat of foreign and fraudulent Internet campaign donations in U.S. federal elections (visit campaignfundingrisks.com to download the full report).

Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president’s campaign but rather by Obama bundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to “gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks.”

There’s more.

The unusual Obama.com website redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Obama campaign’s official website, my.barackobama.com, which does not require donors to enter their credit card security code (known as the CVV code), thereby increasing the likelihood of foreign or fraudulent donations. The website is managed by a small web development firm, Wicked Global, in Maine. One of Wicked Global’s employees, Greg Dorr, lists on his LinkedIn page his additional employment with Peace Action Maine and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights. According to the GAI report, 68 percent of all Internet traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign visitors.

And still more.

In 2011, Mr. Roche obtained one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in Washington, DC: a seat at the head table for President Obama’s State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao. How Roche—a man whose infomercial company hawks fitness equipment, cell phones, and breast enhancement products—landed a seat alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. John Kerry, former President Jimmy Carter, and Chinese President Hu Jintao remains unclear.

Since 2009, White House Visitor Logs list the name Robert Roche at least 19 times, despite the fact Mr. Roche’s primary residence is in China.

Mr. Roche, who is originally from Chicago, is a co-chair of the Technology Initiative for the Obama campaign.

According to Acorn International’s prospectus, the success of Mr. Roche’s company hinges on maintaining access to state-run media and “preferential tax treatments and subsidies” doled out by the People’s Republic of China (PRC):

Our business depends on our access to TV media time to market our products and services in China….PRC law is vague and is subject to discretionary interpretation and enforcement by PRC authorities…Loss of these preferential tax treatments and subsidies could have material and adverse effects on our results of operations and financial conditions.

In addition to the Obama.com redirect revelation, the Government Accountability Institute report—America the Vulnerable: Are Foreign And Fraudulent Online Contributions Influencing U.S. Elections?—exposes myriad gaping online security holes that stand to threaten the integrity of House, Senate, and presidential elections.

I’ve said it again and again on this blog: the Democrat Party is the official party of dishonesty in America.  Liberals are determined to cheat in absolutely every way imaginable in order to gain more and more power and control over the American people in the guise of giving us a socialist nanny state.

P.S. The Daily Beast also has an expose on the dishonest Obama fundraising machine.
