The Islamic Terrorist Threat

Written by: The Bashful Country Boy

In today’s world the greatest threat to peace we have is Islamic terrorism.

Their murderous armies are spreading world wide, even to the United States , where many have come legally, but many more have entered through the porous U.S. /Mexican border.

Many see no problem with the number of illegals who have gained access to our country, and many welcome it as a humanitarian project. Many compare it to a time when people came here from Europe for a better life and see it as a way of offering many the opportunities we all enjoy as Americans.

However, there is a huge difference between immigrants from the past and those of today. In the past, most came for a chance to improve their lives and create an environment that contributed to the American way of life which offered life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

In today’s environment , that is not always the case.

Many now come to live off our system, thinking they are entitled to our privileges without contributing to it. They have forgotten that with rights come responsibilities.

And sadly, many come to destroy our way of life in order to spread a religion of hate. This wave of  hate is mainly , but not always, coming from the Islamic world.

Are all Muslims hateful? Of course not. It has been estimated that about ten percent of all Muslims are extremists. Even if that figure is correct, that ten percent can out number the total population of the United States, and it only takes a few from that ten percent to create havoc on a world wide level.

It is this ten percent that is given the Islamic world a bad name. How can this be reversed and not only spare the world a future filled with terrorism, but create a better understanding of the Islamic way of life?

There is only one group of people who can do it, the Muslims themselves. They are the ones who have to stand up and be counted. Just like in the black community, they are the one’s who need to stop condoning bad behavior. They need to call out members of their own race about their unacceptable behavior. 

Bad behavior is bad behavior, it matters little what race, creed, or religion you happen to be. It is time to stop taking sides , if someone is not acting properly they need to be called out on it and appropriate action taken. 

No one can do it for the Muslim community, if someone of a different races criticizes them or makes a statement, they are only called racist and an insensitive bigot.

They need to police themselves. This is the only way the world attitude will change, these wars have been going on for thousands of years, do you really want them to continue?

We can all exist in the world community, and practice whatever religious or spiritual belief we have. We don’t need to conquer others and force them to belief as we do. 

Many times our own individual spiritual beliefs can change during a lifetime, who knows what you will believe tomorrow? As we gain in knowledge, rightfully so, our beliefs change to accommodate our newly learned information, we need to adjust our spiritual believes accordingly, it is the only way we can grow spiritually. 

Let’s create a world where that is the norm.

Obama-Farrakhan Ties Are Close, Ex-Farrakhan Aide Says

Obama-Farrakhan Ties Are Close, Ex-Farrakhan Aide Says

A former top deputy to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan
tells Newsmax that Barack Obama’s ties to the black nationalist
movement in Chicago run deep, and that for many years the two men have
had “an open line between them” to discuss policy and strategy, either
directly or through intermediaries.

“Remember that for years, if you were a politician in Chicago,
you had to have some type of relationship with Louis Farrakhan. You had
to. If you didn’t, you would be ostracized out of black Chicago,” said
Dr. Vibert White Jr., who spent most of his adult life as a member and
ultimately top officer of the Nation of Islam.

White broke with the group in 1995 and is now a professor of
African-American history at the University of Central Florida in
Orlando.

White said Obama was “part of the Chicago scene” where
Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. and radicals
would go to each other’s events and support each other’s causes.

“Even though Chicago is the third-largest city in the country,
within the black community, the political and militant nationalist
community is very small. So it wouldn’t be uncommon for [Obama and
Farrakhan] to show up at events together, or at least be there and
communicate with each other,” White told Newsmax.

The Anti-Defamation League has denounced Farrakhan and his Nation of Islam as a “hate group.”

Farrakhan has called Jews “bloodsuckers,” “satanic” and accused
them of running the slave trade. He has labeled gays as “degenerates.”
In a 2006 speech, the ADL again condemned Farrakhan when he said:
“These false Jews promote the filth of Hollywood that is seeding the
American people and the people of the world and bringing you down in
moral strength. … It’s the wicked Jews the false Jews that are
promoting lesbianism, homosexuality. It’s wicked Jews, false Jews that
make it a crime for you to preach the word of God, then they call you
homophobic!”

Obama was careful to “denounce” Farrakhan’s comments – but not
the man — during the Democratic primary season earlier this year, but
only after Hillary Clinton called him out for benefiting from
Farrakhan’s support.

Farrakhan endorsed Obama in a videotaped speech to his followers
at Mosque Miryam in Chicago in February. “You are the instruments that
God is gonna use to bring about universal change, and that is why
Barack has captured the youth,” Farrakhan said.

He told the crowd that Obama was the new “messiah.” See Video: Farrakhan Endorses Obama, Calls Him Messiah.

Once the news media and the Clinton campaign got hold of
those comments from Farrakhan, demands mounted from all sides that
Obama “renounce” Farrakhan.

But as he has done repeatedly throughout this campaign, Obama was careful to parse his words.

“You know, I have been very clear in my denunciation of
Minister Farrakhan’s anti-Semitic comments,” he said during one
appearance on “Meet the Press.” “I think that they are unacceptable and
reprehensible.”

Obama hastened to point out that Farrakhan had been praising
him as “an African-American who seems to be bringing the country
together. I obviously can’t censor him, but it is not support that I
sought. And we’re not doing anything, I assure you, formally or
informally with Minister Farrakhan.”

But Obama, once again, was less than candid.

In 1995, according to a profile of Obama that appeared in the
Chicago Reader newspaper, Obama “took time off from attending campaign
coffees to attend October’s Million Man March in Washington, D.C.”

At the time, Obama was running for the Illinois Senate from
Chicago’s South Side, a seat he won after getting surrogates to
challenge the signatures on nominating petitions for his chief rival,
the incumbent Alice Palmer.

The march, which fell far short of attracting the million men
it advertised, was organized by Farrakhan and by Obama’s then-pastor,
the anti-white black nationalist Wright.

Obama spoke at length with the Chicago Reader upon his return
from the Million Man March. “What I saw was a powerful demonstration of
an impulse and need for African-American men to come together to
recognize each other and affirm our rightful place in the society,” he
said.

“These are mean, cruel times, exemplified by a ‘lock ’em up,
take no prisoners’ mentality that dominates the Republican-led
Congress,” Obama said.

“Historically, African-Americans have turned inward and
towards black nationalism whenever they have a sense, as we do now,
that the mainstream has rebuffed us, and that white Americans couldn’t
care less about the profound problems African-Americans are facing.”

“Black nationalism” is a current of thought and political
action in the African-American community that has been championed by
the likes of Farrakhan, Wright, Malcolm X, the Black Panthers and
Khalid al-Mansour. Obama discussed his attraction to black nationalism
at length in his 1995 memoir “Dreams of My Father.”

Obama further parsed his words in a Feb. 25, 2008,
presentation to a Jewish community meeting in Cleveland, Ohio, where he
insisted that Wright “does not have a close relationship with Louis
Farrakhan.”

And yet, just months earlier, Wright’s Trumpet magazine gave
Farrakhan its Lifetime Achievement Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. Trumpeter
Award, saying that Farrakhan “truly epitomized greatness.”

That award was the fruit of a long and deep relationship
between the two men, White told Newsmax. In 1984, Wright accompanied
Farrakhan on his much-criticized trip to meet Libyan leader Moammar
Gadhafi, at a time when Gadhafi was considered an enemy of the United
States.

Wright also accompanied Farrakhan and Jackson to Syria in
1986, where they successfully negotiated with Syrian strongman for the
release of downed American pilot Robert O. Goodman.

Obama’s Speaking Style

In addition to the ideological affinity Obama expressed for
the black nationalist movement, White believes that Obama owes much of
his success as a public orator to speaking techniques that Farrakhan
developed over the years, and exploited for years to great success.

“If you listen to the rhetoric and you take away Obama’s
political jargon, you hear a religious tenor to it that is very much
Nation of Islam-like. I don’t know if anyone has ever touched on it,
but Obama’s speaking style is very Malcolm-like, very Farrakhan-like,”
White said.

Any American who has listened to early radio or television
interviews of Obama can hear how dramatically Obama’s speaking style
has changed since he became a United States senator.

In clips dating from 2001 and even early 2004, Obama speaks
haltingly and in long, rambling sentences packed with legalese and
dense pseudo-academic rhetoric. But not today.

“As a former minister of the Nation of Islam, I know how they
speak,” White told Newsmax. “I don’t know who was training Obama. But
that style is not a ministerial style like in the Christian church.
It’s a Nation of Islam style.”

White began in the late 1970s as a foot soldier in the Fruit
of Islam, the military branch of Farrakhan’s Black Muslim group, then
rose to become a minister of the Nation of Islam and a top deputy to
Farrakhan himself.

Known initially as Brother Vibert L.X., and later as Minister
V.L. Muhammad, he parted ways with Farrakhan not long after the Million
Man March, after nearly 25 years within the organization.

White’s 2002 book “Inside the Nation of Islam” prompted death
threats by Farrakhan loyalists, so he left Illinois and moved to
Florida to teach at the University of Central Florida.

He told Newsmax that Obama’s remarkable speaking style, even
his manner of standing at a podium to appear larger than life, is
directly copied from Farrakhan.

“If the Nation of Islam can’t do anything else, it can train
people how to speak. And nobody can outspeak a Muslim minister,” he
said.

Earlier this year, a pro-Clinton blog run by former CIA
officer Larry Johnson unearthed a 2004 photograph showing Michelle
Obama and Farrakahn’s wife, Mother Khadijah Farrakhan, at an event
hosted by Jackson’s Citizenship Education Foundation.

Newsmax queried Obama’s U.S. Senate office, his Chicago
office and his campaign press office about his ties to Farrakhan, but
did not receive a reply.

Ever since he appeared before the annual policy conference of
the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee in June, Obama has
attempted to convince the Jewish community that he is pro-Israel.

But his longstanding ties to Farrakhan, Wright and
Palestinian activist Rashid Khalidi, among others, have disturbed many
Jewish community leaders.

Sen. John McCain publicly chastised The Los Angeles Times on
Thursday for not releasing a videotape the newspaper said it possessed
of a 2003 dinner for Khalidi, where Obama reportedly accused Israel of
carrying out a “genocide” against the Palestinians.

John McCain or Barack Obama, who will win?

The election of 2008 is almost here, who is going to win?
It is hard to believe that we as a country have changed
this much in twenty years. 20 years ago John McCain would have been a
Democrat and Barack Obama would have been knocked out of the race
months ago because of his left leaning radical ideas and associates.

Such behavior has been accepted as normal by many people, we have all
become too accepting of unacceptable behavior, all in the name of
political correctness.
How can someone be considered as electable to the highest office in
America, when he sits in a church and listens to Reverend Wright
condemn America and everything it stands for. There is a question as to
whether Barack is a Muslim, judging from the tone of Rev. Wright’s
sermons, he is not a Christan, I don’t think Jesus would approve. It
also shows lack of good judgment, a normal person would have left
during the first five minutes of the first sermon, it wouldn’t have
taken 20 years.
Never have I seen a Presidential candidate give a female candidate,
(Hillary) the “bird” as Barack did during the primaries, or call
another Vice Presidential candidate a pig, very Presidential!!

All politicians have associates of questionable character,it goes with
the territory, however there are limits, this guy has no normal
friends. Almost everyone of them is a radical or a terrorist. People
who don’t like the United States and want to our way of life destroyed.

Reverend Wright, his mentor and spiritual advisor certainly qualifies, I go to church to be uplifted not to hear hate speech.
William Ayres, a 60s radical who tried to blow up the pentagon and
Capitol, who expressed no remorse and only regrets he didn’t do more.
Barack launched his political career in Ayre’s living room.
 Bill Ayres wrote a book, “Prairie Fire” that he dedicated to Sirhan
Sirhan, for the younger crowd this is the guy who assassinated Bobby
Kennedy. Then the Kennedys turn around and endorse Barack for
president. Does that make sense?
 Obama says that Ayres did all this when Barack was only 8, this book
was written later than that, plus many of Ayres statements were made
after 911, Barack wasn’t 8 then. Another sign of poor judgment.
Ayres is now a college professor,this brings up another question, what
are the colleges teaching today? Would you want your child educated by
this nut job?
It has been reported that Obama received much funding for his Harvard
Law Degree from Arab sources.It’s obvious he didn’t pay for all his
college with student loans.
Along these same lines, his campaign has received hundreds of thousands
of dollars of contributions from foreign sources, I wonder who these
people were.
Louis Farrakhan,another radical is still another associate, Farrakhan’s daughter works for Hugo Chavez.

Another confidant of Barack is a man named Khalidi.

Khalidi reportedly
once served as the spokesman for the Palestine Liberation Organization while it was a U.S.-designated terror group.

In
April, the L.A. Times reported on a farewell party Obama attended in
2003 for Khalidi, who had been a fellow professor at the University of
Chicago. At the party, Obama purportedly “reminisced about meals
prepared by Khalidi’s wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged
his thinking.”

Why is the Jewish community afraid to support a Mormon, people who as a whole have great family values and work ethics, and then turn around and support someone with suspected ties to the Arab world?

Speaking of the economy, two of the principle players that lead to
the downfall of the mortgage industry were men named Johnson and
Raines, they are now financial advisers of Obama’s. Barney Frank, Nancy
Pelosi and Harry Reid all liberals,had a hand in forcing mortgage
companies to make loans to people who couldn’t afford them, do we want
them fixing the problem they caused? More bad judgment.

The left opposed everything Bush tried to do, he tried to reform
Social Security, they said it is in great shape, WRONG! He tried to
reform health care, same deal!

None of the socialists policies Barack is proposing  work,they have
been tried in other countries and have never worked anywhere. In fact
some of these same policies actually helped to bring on the Great
Depression.

Saddam
was a murdering tyrant, he was paying parents $25,000 to strap bombs on
their children and send them to Israel. There is evidence that he was
meeting with terrorists and supporting them , there were training camps
in Iraq, evidence of production facilities of WMD’s were found, all of
this was ignored by the media. I have always been proud of my country,
but one of my proudest moments was when our Marines pulled down that
obnoxious statue of Saddam!

The war was at times poorly managed, but when we finally got on the
right track, the left along with Obama said the surge wasn’t working,
even before our troops had left the United States. To this day, Obama
won’t admit that it worked.  They are still trying to turn it into
another Vietnam,which was I remind you, ran by liberals. More bad judgment.

Do we want someone running the country who is afraid to go on Fox
News , although Barack was finally humiliated enough to appear on
O”Reilly, he was as nervous as a prostitute in church! If they are
afraid of Fox news,how can they stand up to our enemies?

No matter the question,if one opposes Obama, they are labeled a
racist or bigot, a TV station near Orlando questioned Joe Biden, asking
if Obama’s policies were Marxist, guess what! The station was informed
they would no longer have access to Obama and his campaign, what happened to freedom of speech
? I assume we no longer have the right to ask questions, the questions
have to be cleared first, we don’t have a right to know how a candidate
feels about issues?

The events that have been happening in this election would make my
grandparents roll over in their graves, can you imagine what the founding fathers would think?

I don’t hold the Republicans entirely blameless either, there is
enough fault to go around . They abandoned their principles in the
early 2000s, the principles that got them elected in 1994, and gave us
a balanced budget for much of the 90s.

The next four years aren’t going to be easy no matter who gets
elected,however Barack is untested, has never held a management
position and votes “present” on important matters in the senate. During
the Financial crisis he told congress , “Go ahead and take care of it,
if you need me I’ll come.” Is that the actions of a leader?

On the other hand, McCain has been around the block a time or two.
He can handle anything, I don’t always agree with him, but at least he
has been tested. He also doesn’t have ties to people who would like to
do harm to our country.

Sarah Palin has more common sense and good judgment in her little
finger than Obama has in his whole body.She embellishes the ideals that
made this country great, what she lacks in experience, she more than
makes up for in common sense. I’ll take common sense over experience
any day of the week!

I don’t know about you, but for me I’ll keep my guns and bible, you can keep the change.

Obama took millions in illegal foreign donations

Ex-CIA Expert: Obama Took Millions in Illegal Foreign Donations

Wednesday, October 29, 2008 9:27 PM

By: Kenneth R. Timmerman     Article Font Size  

A Newsmax investigation of Obama/Biden campaign contributors, undertaken in conjunction with a private investigative firm headed by a former CIA operations officer, has identified 118 donors who appear to lack U.S. citizenship.

Some of these “red flag” donors work for foreign governments; others have made public statements declaring that they are citizens of Cameroun, Nigeria, Pakistan, Canada, and other countries.

A Newsmax sampling of about 3,400 donors also found hundreds more who showed “yellow flags” such as not having used a Social Security number or a known U.S. address. Most U.S.-born citizens are issued Social Security numbers at birth or by the time they enter kindergarten.

Under federal law, only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may donate to federal political campaigns. It is illegal for the campaigns to accept money knowingly from foreign donors.

The McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform bill of 2002 placed new restrictions on political fundraising after the scandals of 1996, when the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign was exposed for having taken millions of dollars of unregulated soft money from donors with ties to Chinese military intelligence.

But even with the new laws, it remains very difficult to identify with any precision foreign money if a campaign itself does not cooperate with the Federal Election Commission and perform its own due diligence.

Until very recently, the Obama campaign had no safeguards in its online fundraising Web site designed to weed out foreign donors. Instead, its operations appeared to be designed specifically to enhance the flow of illegal money.

The Newsmax investigation focused only on donors whose names the Obama campaign disclosed, which are available to public scrutiny through the Federal Election Commission Web site.

In addition to the donations the campaign has disclosed, however, it has taken an unprecedented $218 million from donors whose names it is keeping secret, according to FEC spokesman Robert Biersack.

That money came from individuals who in theory never passed the threshold of $200, the limit the FEC set for public disclosure of a donor’s name and place of residence, so there is no way of knowing how much foreign money could be included in that amount.

For example, hidden away amidst the unprecedented $150 million Obama claims to have raised from individual donors in September was more than $42 million raised from secret donors. These donations appear in the records as a single entry under the heading, “Donors, Unitemized.”

Newsmax retained the services of former CIA operations officer Frederick W. Rustmann Jr. and a team of international forensic accounting experts to comb through Obama’s donor list to identify those who apparently aren’t U.S. citizens or residents. Rustmann, a 24 year veteran field officer, operates CTC International Group Ltd., a West Palm Beach, Fla., firm that provides business intelligence services and analysis.

Using sophisticated Internet search tools, fee-based data bases, and other public records, CTC attempted to identify Social Security numbers and U.S. addresses connected to the Obama donors. Most of these donors gave obvious overseas addresses when they made their donations, but the Obama campaign had no security screen to detect them.

“Hillary and McCain demanded proof of citizenship of all their donors,” Rustmann said. “Obama did not, so he benefitted by receiving an enormous amount of money from foreign donors who wanted to influence the U.S. election process.”

Rustmann and his investigative team expressed “high suspicions” that 118 donors flagged as “red” were not U.S. citizens.

“That’s all we can say for certain, because it’s difficult to prove citizenship with no database that lists citizens,” Rustmann said.

Typical is Victor A. of Lagos, Nigeria, who gave $500 to the campaign in May. In the FEC database, his address is listed as Ikoyi, NA. But a closer look at the actual itemized receipts filed by the campaign shows that he declared his address as 9e Awori Street Dolphin Estate, Lagos, Nigeria.

That apparently slipped by the eagle eyes of the Obama campaign’s finance team.

A survey of the Obama donor base returns 8,794 donations from individuals who gave their state as “NA.” They included donors from Bangalore, India; London; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; Lagos, Nigeria; and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Thousands more gave state abbreviations that, combined with the city addresses they listed, clearly referred to foreign countries. Examples include IT (Italy), FR (France), GR (Greece), NZ (New Zealand), JP (Japan), GA (Gaza).

Another 2,372 donors gave their state of residence as “ZZ,” with cities including Moscow, Barcelona, Beirut, London, Lausanne, Singapore, Hagatna, Gunma-Ken, Buelach, Shanghai, Geneva, Prague, Aichi-Gun, Kiev, Hong Kong, and others.

The Obama campaign claims that these donors with overseas addresses are Americans living abroad, but there is no way of knowing that for certain because the campaign has not systematically required proof of citizenship from overseas donors.

The pace of foreign donations and other questionable fundraising practices has increased during the past few weeks, even as Obama campaign spokesmen say they have closed loopholes on their Web site and changed the credit-card authorization procedures that have allowed such donations. The Federal Election Commission had flagged 16,639 potential foreign donations as of Oct. 21 that brought in $5,249,263.96 to the campaign.

Take the case of Jo Jacquet, who gave $23,065 to Obama in 23 separate contributions last month. CTC found three people with variations of the name “Jo Anna Jacquet” who had U.S. addresses and Social Security numbers. It is not clear whether this specific Obama donor is a U.S. citizen.

“Jo Jacquet” made all of her contributions on two days, alternating between $5 and $2,300 charges to a credit card.

On all of the donations, she gave her employer as “DFDFGDFG,” and her profession as “DFGDFGDFGHFGH.” None of this attracted the suspicions of the Obama campaign or of Chase Paymentech, the company that processes the Obama campaign’s credit card donations.

The FEC requested that the Obama campaign re-attribute or re-designate all of the money from “Jo Jacquet” that went beyond the $4,600 limit but did not require that it be refunded. Under campaign finance rules, the campaign can shift this money into the “Obama Victory” account, a joint fundraising committee with much higher individual limits that it operates with the Democratic National Committee.

One apparent reason for the unusual number of foreign donors who may not hold U.S. citizenship is the fact the Obama campaign turned off the security features most merchants demand for customers when doing online transactions, such as verifying the card number against the cardholder’s name and billing address.

Another major loophole is the apparent widespread use of gift cards, which notoriously have been used for money-laundering purposes, especially in places such as Russia and Ukraine, industry security analysts tell Newsmax.

Newsmax asked James Wester, a spokesman for Chase Paymentech, who was responsible for taking the unusual step of deactivating the Address Verification Service recommended by VISA USA on the Obama Web site. Such security features can be deactivated by the processing company, or at the request of the merchant, in this case, Obama for America.

Wester said that Paymentech was “not going to be issuing a statement at this time.”

VISA USA has a series of verification tools it recommends to online merchants to prevent online credit card fraud and to guarantee the secur
ity of personal credit-card
information.

“Fraudsters have been known to test credit card numbers by making online donations to charitable organizations,” a credit-card industry insider told Newsmax, on condition of anonymity.

In fact, by operating as a “high-risk merchant,” the Obama campaign could put both its donors and Chase Paymentech at risk, he said.

“A legitimate online merchant or charity would call in the Secret Service or the FBI” if it saw the high fraud rates that have appeared on the Obama campaign Web site.

“If they are not taking basic security safeguards to prevent such obvious online fraud as you have found, then how can any donor have confidence that they will protect credit card information? But if cash flow is the name of the game, it doesn’t matter as long as they get the money up-front and get the job done. They can pay the fines later,” he added.

Following are a few of the individuals the Newsmax/CTC International investigation found of overseas donors. To demonstrate its compliance with FEC regulations, the Obama campaign should request proof that these individuals are, indeed, U.S. citizens;

# Nasser Z. of 187 Blvd Bineau in Paris-France, “NA,” made seven donations totaling $785. CTC found no record indicating U.S. citizenship. But on Nasser’s personal blog, he states that he is of Algerian origin and lives between Paris and Dubai. He also notes that he is not registered to vote in the United States and hints that he may be an adviser to the Obama campaign on Arab relations.

# Salem H. gave $200 to the campaign in March 2008, listing a London address. He said he worked as a salesman for “Anaka,” No information was found either on Haffar or his company indicating U.S. citizenship.

# Essomba H. made 11 donations totaling $265. Essomba gave an address in Lyon, “NA,” and said he was unemployed but working for “Association,” the French equivalent of a community organizer. CTC found that Essomba actually worked for PDT Associates Afrikespace et Oyenga, which showed him as living in Lyon, France. His personal blog states, “I’m a Cameroonian living in France” and notes that he is not registered to vote.

# Gedewon (or Gideon) G. made 32 donations totaling $1,095. Although he lists his employer as “Filtom Design Services” and his residence as Toronto, Canada, CTC could find no company with that name. Gedewon frequently posts blogs to a Web site for expatriate Eritreans, where he often promotes Obama.

# Mahamane M. gave $500 to the campaign and listed his address as Niamey, the capitol of the central African state of Niger. He listed his occupation as managing director of C.N.U.T. Niger. The Public Transport Users Council, CNUT is affiliated with the prime minister’s office. In an interview, Mahamane said he is particularly interested in developing transportation resources that will help bring Niger’s extensive uranium resources to market.

# Gilles M. lives in Zurich and claims to be “founder and senior consultant” of 4?ME (sic) Image Consulting. Gilles made three donations to the campaign for a total of $240.39. The campaign found him suspicious enough to return one of them in July, but kept the rest. Under FEC rules, that will bring Gilles back into the shadows, since his aggregate contributions now total less than $200.

# Stamen S. of Sofia, Bulgaria, lists his profession as “Mployer” and his employer as “Employer.” He has made ten donations totaling $170. CTC found no record indicating U.S. citizenship.

# Francis B. . of La Creche, France, made three donations totaling $200. He is reported as being a medicine physician at Hospital-Niort and is listed. CTC found no verifiable record of U.S. citizenship.

# Pedro M.,. who said he was a salesman for Intermundo in Prague, made two donations for a total of $900. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

# Sandeep M., . an investment manager at Clariden Leu, Kuesnacht, in Zurich, Switzerland, gave the maximum $2,300 allowed per election. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

# Marissa M., . a nurse living in Guatemala City, gave eight $25 donations. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

# Somine L. . declared that she worked at the French Ministry of Culture in Paris, and donated $100. CTC found no verifiable record indicating U.S. citizenship.

Although CTC had no way of accurately evaluating the real amount of foreign donations based on the survey they did for Newsmax, Rustmann said he believe that the anecdotal evidence was clear.

“In my opinion, from what I have seen here, millions of dollars came from illegal donations, because the Obama campaign did little to vet the donors,” Rustmann said.

An earlier Newsmax estimate, based on the unusual occurrence of unrounded contributions, which fundraising experts attributed to foreign currency donations, concluded that as much as $63 million could have come from foreign sources.

A veteran investigator with the Criminal Investigative Division of the U.S. Secret Service told Newsmax on Monday that most of the donor fraud Newsmax has identified could fly under the radar of federal investigators, unless the feds received a complaint from a victim of identify fraud.

Identify fraud certainly appeared to be the case when it came to the $174,800 donated in September in the name of Manchester, Mo., resident, Mary T. Biskup. A retired insurance manager, Biksup told The Washington Post that she never gave the money to the Obama campaign, and had checked her credit-card statements and couldn’t find any trace of a charge to her account.

“We’re not out a penny,” Biskup said. “I gather that someone has hacked into something using other people’s credit cards and putting my name on it.”

The credit-card industry often covers up identify fraud, such as apparently occurred with Biskup. Credit-card companies would rather swallow losses and chargebacks than admit to consumers that criminals have cracked their security systems, insiders tell Newsmax.

Dear LA Times,
 
Where is freedom of speech and freedom of the press when a paper like the LA Times actually withholds information to the American people in order to promote a candidate for President of the United States.
 
I am a registered Democrat and not some right wing Republican.  But I am very concerned when a candidate from either party would have so much power that even a newspaper like the LA Times would be afraid to report the news. This decision by the LA Times only makes me very wary about how to cast my vote because even Newspapers like the LA Times are afraid to report the news and release newsworthy video information.
 
This sound more like Nazi Germany when no one could speak out against a Dictator, not like a News organization that supports Freedom of the Press.
 
If the LA times is afraid to report ALL news about Obama for fear of recrimination, then I certainly would be afraid to vote for a man that would try to stop freedom of the press.
 

Registered Democrat

Obama and Machete Politics

Obama And Machete Politics

Sen. Barack Obama’s Strange Friendship With
His Cousin Raila Odinga,
The Marxist Kenyan Prime Minister

.October 27, 2008Sen. Barack Obama campaigned on Marxist Kenyan Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s behalf in Kenya in 2006 and, with the help of the son of Libyan dictator Muammar Gadhafi, raised nearly $1 million for Odinga’s campaign.
When Odinga lost his presidential election, he refused to accept the
results and incited riots resulting in thousands being macheted to
death or burned alive in their churches.  

.A video shows Obama with Odinga at an HIV event – and it shows the aftermath of Odinga’s rioters destroying lives and property after the election loss.

Obama traveled throughout Kenya with Odinga and spoke on his behalf at numerous rallies, according to The Washington Times.
During his speeches, Obama criticized Odinga’s opponent, President Mwai
Kibaki. According to Obama: “The [Kenyan] people have to suffer over
corruption perpetrated by government officials.” Obama took trips to
Kenya at taxpayer expense in 2004, 2005, and 2006.

His trip in 2006
was also designed to help Odinga’s Orange Democratic Movement
strategize how to defeat Kibaki. Obama was supposedly in Kenya on a HIV
fact-finding trip as part of his official duties as a U.S. Senator. The
American taxpayer footed the bill.

The
Odinga-inspired rioting resulted in more than 1,000 people killed by
machetes, shootings, or having the homes burned to the ground. At least
800 Christian churches were damaged from rampaging, machete-wielding
Odinga supporters.

In one grisly killing spree,
50 Assembly of God members were locked in their church before it was
set ablaze by Odinga supporters. Those fleeing were hacked to death by
machetes.

Like Father, Like Son

.Raila Odinga is a committed Marxist who was educated in East Germany and named one of his sons “Fidel” after Fidel Castro.
Odinga’s father, Oginga, served as Vice President of Kenya under Jomo
Kenyatta’s presidency in the 1960s. Kenyatta formerly ran the Mau Mau, a terrorist group
that ravaged that nation in the 1950s and killed countless white
farmers. (Barack Obama, Sr. also served in the Kenyatta administration
before he died in an alcohol-induced car crash in 1982. Obama, Sr. was
a self-identified socialist.)

Time magazine in 1965 characterized Oginga Odinga as “openly attempting to turn the new nation toward Communism.”

His son, Raila
Odinga ran for the presidency of Kenya in 2007 against rival Mwai
Kibaki. He lost the election by at least 230,000 votes. In a strategy
already worked out in advance, he then claimed voter fraud and incited
riots that eventually took the lives of more than 1,000 people and
displaced as many as 600,000 citizens.

Obama Campaigns For Odinga

.Barack
Obama was deeply involved in campaigning for Odinga and even appointed
a member of his Senate staff to stay in touch with the Odinga campaign.
Emails from Obama to Odinga were obtained by author Jerome Corsi, through an anonymous source within the Orange Democratic Movement political party. They reveal that Obama had appointed Mark Lippert to be his contact with the Odinga campaign.

As noted above, a
strategy was already in place to claim voter fraud. Jerome Corsi noted
that this plan involved fomenting ethnic tensions and violence “as a
last resort.” One element of the plan was to create tribal animosity
between Odinga’s Luo tribe and the Kikuyu tribe of Mwai Kibaki.

.During his campaign for the presidency, Odinga reached an agreement with the minority population of Muslims to establish Shariah Law in that nation if elected president. 

Eventually, United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan worked out a power-sharing deal with Kibaki and Odinga. He now serves as Prime Minister of Kenya.

“If Corsi’s
information is correct, it is possible that Obama and Lippert broke
federal law. No congressional aide should be placed at the disposal of
a foreign individual campaigning for office overseas,” said TVC
Executive Director Andrea Lafferty. 

In addition to
Odinga, presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) has had an odd
assortment of friends over the years since he has been involved in
politics. .Among those are Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, unrepentant domestic terrorists; Rashid Khalidi, a former advisor to Palestinian terrorist Yasir Arafat, anti-white, America-hater, adulterer  Pastor Jeremiah Wright, and others.

More on Obama’s political views and associates is available in TVC’s Video Election Guide.
