Barack Obama and the Democrats are running one of the most corrupt campaigns in history. They are getting away with it through the complicity of the media and the hesitation of public figures to speak candidly concerning this election. Many of us have been writing for years about socialism in the Democratic Party. However, few nationally known personalities, political or otherwise, have been willing to risk the criticism from the media that follows. Accusations of “McCarthyism”, “racism”, “gutter politics” and “the politics of personal destruction” are just a few of the terms used to silence those who would speak out.
Only within the past few days has John McCain and Sarah Palin tentatively raised the issue of socialism in their campaign rallies. Even then it is used only to describe Obama’s plans to “spread the wealth around”. As democrats like Barney Frank, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and others become more open about their socialist philosophies, the obvious facts are becoming harder to overlook or deny. Barack Obama is a socialist in the mold of Saul Alinsky. He has been tutored and groomed since childhood for the position he now enjoys.
Evidence of these facts is becoming more available daily. Internet publications such as World Net Daily, Newsmax.com, CNS News, Right Bias.Com, and Discover the Networks.Org are all well respected sources that publish articles almost daily on the subject. In my last post, “Getting the Government We Deserve”, I pointed out the fact that corruption is always a basic ingredient in socialism. In this election it is showing up particularly in fund raising and voter fraud. In both instances it seems to be either denied, overlooked, or glossed over, even by those who ordinarily are thought of as conservative opinion makers and leaders in the conservative movement.
For years socialists have been advocating innovations in voting rules to make it easier for those who have the least inclination and the least understanding of the issues to vote. It has been universally accepted that the more people who vote, regardless of their level of understanding, the better it is for our democracy. Millions are spent by campaigns and community organizations to “get out the vote”. Innovations such as “motor voter registration”, absentee ballots, same day registration and early voting have become commonplace. Any attempts to establish voting standards to insure that voters are legally qualified to vote are met with accusations of racism or charges of “suppressing the vote”.
The most threatening innovations in voting are “same day registration” and “early voting“. These almost beg to be abused. Invariably, these lax voting rules are instigated by the Democratic Party. They sound so reasonable that they are accepted by most people with little thought. We are beginning to see the results now, as more reports of fraudulent registrations and fraudulent voting begin to surface.
Spearheading the Democrat’s voter registration drives is the socialist front group, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). ACORN is partially funded with millions of taxpayer dollars from earmarks and amendments added to legislation by Democrats in Congress. During the last several voting cycles the group has come under scrutiny by state and federal prosecutors for election fraud. They are now under investigation in twelve states, mostly the so-called battleground states.
Barack Obama is no stranger to ACORN. During the summer of 1992 he was director of Illinois’ Project Vote. Working in cooperation with ACORN, Project Vote registered 150,000 voters on Chicago’s South Side for the ‘92 election. His prior relationship with ACORN was from 1985 to 1988 when he worked as director of Developing Communities Project, an affiliate of ACORN. As Director of DCP he also served as a consultant and instructor for the Gamaliel Foundation, an organization that trains Community Organizers. As a lawyer he represented ACORN in a lawsuit against the State of Illinois to force it to implement “motor voter” registration.
Obama’s experience as a Community Organizer and in voter registration drives has served him well in his presidential campaign. He has patterned his campaign after the tactics advocated by Saul Alinsky in his book “Rules for Radicals” published in 1972. Alinsky is known as the father of Community Organizing and his book has become the “Bible” for Community Organizers. Most of the affiliates that make up the organization of ACORN use the same handbook as the Obama campaign.
The Obama campaign has raised more than $600 million in donations for the 2008 election, breaking all previous records. His unprecedented ability to raise funds is regarded with awe by the main stream media as well as many Republicans and conservatives. The reasons behind his phenomenal success as a fund raiser are mostly overlooked.
Obama represents the best opportunity in the past hundred years for the socialist movement to realize its long sough goal of taking over the government of the United States. As a result, socialists from all over the world are tempted to contribute to his candidacy. The Internet not only makes this possible but also makes it easy to hide illegal foreign donations as well as “over the limit” donations from within the United States.
Newsmax.com has published two very informative articles on the subject. One article deals with foreign contributions and the other with credit card fraud. While they do not offer conclusive proof, it is hard to come up with alternative explanations for the unorthodox examples they give. According to Newsmax some 37,000 Obama donations appear to be conversions of foreign currency.
One of the clues they give is the number of donations for odd amounts, like $876.09, $388.67, etc. Donors making contributions to a political campaign invariably make those donations in even amounts: $400, $1,000, or $10 for example. However if they are making the donations by credit card from a country with currency different than our own, those contributions would show up in the recipients account in odd amounts like the ones above, after being converted to U.S. dollars.
Another gimmick documented by Newsmax for getting around the requirement to report all donations over $200 is the use of “gift cards”. Gift cards are not linked to any specific name and Obama’s web site is not set up to weed out suspicious donors. Therefore, a donor wishing to make a $1,000 donation anonymously would only need to purchase ten gift cards for a hundred dollars each and then use those cards to make contributions under the name of Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse or any other name. Since the campaign does not have to report the name of the donor for donations less than $200 there is no way to trace them back to their origin. Nice gimmick, huh?
There is a good chance that not only will the election be stolen but the government as well. Unfortunately, if that happens there is very little recourse, since the foxes will be in charge of the entire chicken coop.
