The Questionable Sources of Obama’s Campaign Contributions Cloud America’s Future


Continued from page 1…

Foreign Donors

Richard E. Hug, a seasoned veteran Republican fundraiser, said “I’ve never seen this in all my years of raising money for political candidates, the first thing it suggests is foreign currency transactions, contributions from foreign donors, which is clearly illegal.”

Some appear to claim these disputed amounts were proceeds from Obama’s online store, but the campaign has never revealed the sources of proceeds from its online store, which was shut down after several news organizations revealed that Palestinians from the Gaza Strip and other foreigners had made large purchases there.

A good example of how suspect donors have made extremely unusual and suspect contributions is cited in this article.

Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi, with proven terrorist ties, stated recently “There are elections in America now. Along came a black citizen of Kenyan African origins, a Muslim, who had studied in an Islamic school in Indonesia. His name is Obama.”

Muammar went on. “All the people in the Arab and Islamic world and in Africa applauded this man. They welcomed him and prayed for him and for his success, and they may have even been involved in legitimate contribution campaigns to enable him to win the American presidency.”

“We are hoping that this black man will take pride in his African and Islamic identity, and in his faith, and that he has rights in America, and that he will change America from evil to good, and that America will establish relations that will serve it well with other peoples, especially the Arabs”.

A Youtube video of Muammar, a known enemy of America and with known affiliations with terrorists is here, specifically referencing contributions made to Obama from the nations of terror.

A truly frightening quote from Muammar is “”The thing we fear most is that the black man suffers from an inferiority complex. This is dangerous. If our brother Obama feels that because he is black he doesn’t have the right to rule America, this would be a disaster, because such a feeling would make him act whiter than the white, and go to an extreme in his persecution and degradation of the blacks.”

Muammar is a terrorist. Let there be no mistake what he is speaking of here. He is speaking of a President of the US that acts in the interest of terrorists that attack and kill Americans. We digress a bit because we want to demonstrate the kind of supporters Obama has in the world. This article does an excellent job, and we cannot venture in this area without digressing too widely from our original premise.

We are concerned that Obama is concealing his sources of financial contributions for good reason, and that financial support from terrorist nations, terrorists and their supporters have been a major source of Obama’s funds. To what end? The destruction of Israel, a split Jerusalem, a recognition of Iran’s desire to wipe Israel off the map? Obama has stated openly he would proceed with negotiations with Iran without precondition.

Certainly, no US President could muster the strength to pass such radical ideas through Congress, but if it turns out, as it appears, that many of Obama’s supporters are terrorists and foreign nationals illegally contributing to his campaign that Obama does not wish to expose, it brings his ideology into focus because he has truly misled and misguided the American public, and it begins an alignment of our leadership with those that wish to see the United States and Israel destroyed or assimilated. In addition, his campaign has clearly broken the law, a critical law regarding the fairness of fund raising, bringing any election result favoring Obama into question.

Why doesn’t Obama want us to know? Because if America knew the above statistics across the board, they would have major second thoughts about Obama as a viable leader. If fully disclosed, we believe these donations would be tracked to sources of terror and that Obama’s policies once elected may be governed by these contributors.

Obama has made every effort to comfort American Jews and to state clearly his support of Israel. However, Obama has spoken of his support of Israel and that he favors a unified Jerusalem, but he has backed away from the latter. This MSNBC article clearly shows how Obama flip flopped on an undivided Jerusalem.

However, even if a review of the contributions made to Obama reveals that they are from sources that are not terrorists or nations supporting terrorists, his actions to conceal them makes him suspect. It is dishonest and, if, as it appears, many non-citizens have contributed to Obama’s campaign, it was clearly illegal. Obama can only distance himself so far from the fact that without the funds from the sources he has concealed, his race for the white house would not be nearly as successful as it has been.

    Another dweeb liberal that can’t read. First, check any source in the article or any you can find on the web. About half of Obama’s contributions came from people contributing $200 or less. It is fact, so your first statement is stupidly false.

    The second point you make is also stupidly false and off topic.

    The issue is that McCain disclosed ALL of his contributions. Obama refused and had contributions from Palestinian Terrorists and undiclosed false names like Aldolfe Hitler.

    Why is it that liberals seem to be illiterate? Maybe that is why you want a welfare state?

    Obama’s first action will be to tax the internet. Can’t wait for that to start?

    Sweetie, you seem so angry.

    You are the troll here from what I can see. And you say there are lies in the articles here, but all the articles have references and research. You present nothing to prove any contradiction or post anything of any worth. That just makes you look like an angry child that wants his bottle.

    Certainly, you aren’t placing your faith in HuffingtonPost owned by wealthy folk that made their money off of oil and that block posters that disagree with anything they say right?

    Sen Obama will be our next President because he’s the better candidate to lead this country.

    Sweety, two things.

    1. Your first comment is so off topic it is laughable.

    2. If you think you can debunk anything in the article, debunk it. Everything including Ghadafi’s endorsement of Obama as a fellow Muslim is real and you are a delusional illiterate.

  6. Hi Glen,

    By your standards, W should have been impeached. He didn’t just experiment with drugs in his youth he abused them for a long time. Maybe the security standards are a little stupid wrt minor drug usage – ever think of that or is that too radical for you?

    Questions:
    1. How would you have “fewer rights” under a government dominated by the Democrats. I don’t think the Republicans have left you many.
    2. You are assuming things that haven’t happened and are not scheduled to happen. “What will happen when they start taxing the small business owners?” Hasn’t happened, isn’t in the cards. You might as well ask “What will happen when McCain forces all people under the age of 75 to enlist in the armed forces?”
    3. Public financing. Obama didn’t “promise” or “pledge” to take public financing. He agreed to try to negotiate a fair deal with the Republican candidate so the playing field was level. No more 527 swiftboat crap. Real limits that both adhered to. McCain and Obama camps had some talks but couldn’t reach an agreement. McCain realized he couldn’t raise enough from private donations and chose the public financing route (after waffling a couple of times). Obama realized that he could tap millions of donors and had a better fund raising apparatus and went for the private financing route.
    4. Why is it close? Partly racism. Partly because McCain has been around forever and people are familiar with him. For some people, Barack is too “new”. Also party loyalty – there are probably 35% of the people who will ALWAYS vote Republican even if their candidate is … Dick Cheney or Jack Abramoff.

    There are too many fallacies in your arguments for me to bother digging into all of them. Try to relax and embrace the future. It is going to be better than the last 8 years. Try to be positive and helpful and move the country forward.

    Stop worrying about trying to dominate the whole world with the military. More people die in traffic accidents and plane crashes than wars. Remove the dependence on foreign oil and there is less need for military imperialism – work towards energy independence if you care about national security.

  7. This article and its responses demonstrate that the attention span of a liberal is about 2 sentences.

    It is why the liberal propaganda blogs like HuffingtonPost keep all their posts to about 3-4 paragraphs. Most liberals can’t read past two or three sentences without falling asleep.

  8. Is McCain prepared emotionally, psychologically, intellectually, temperamentally to lead hundreds of millions of human beings? Over see a fragile national economy? Command the largest national armed forces on earth? Be a rational guardian of a nuclear arsenal? How does having been a prisoner of war qualify McCain to be President?

    McCain’s behavior is erratic, impulsive, reckless and self-destructive. Add McCain’s facial tics and body tics, you have got to wonder about his overall mental health.

    Some facts:
    P.O.W for 5 years.
    5 years = 43,800 hours.
    5 years = 2,628,000 minutes
    5 years = 157,680,000 seconds

    – McCain was tortured.
    – McCain lived with the threat of torture throughout his imprisonment.

    McCain’s mental health condition needs to be known.

    Consider this:
    – Did McCain reckless and impulsive behavior lead to his being shot down?

    – Did McCain return from such a horrific experience in the same mental health he entered it with?

    – How does the residue of such a horrific experience, hidden from view, express itself?

    – How does such a horrific experience influence McCain’s world view?

    – How does such a horrific experience influence McCain’s thinking process?

    – What brain damage occurred?

    – What would a McCain brain scan reveal?

    McCain is 72.

    McCain has had four instances of melanoma.

    Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer.

    Suppose stress lowers his immune response causing a recurrence of his skin cancer?

    Will a recurrence of McCain’s skin cancer lead to McCain’s incapacitation?

    Lead to McCain’s death?

    Hasten Palin’s ascension to the Presidency!

    Let’s rid American politics of GOP miscreants.

    Let’s give dignity and fair play a chance.

    On November 4th vote for Senator Obama.

    As with so many of the liberal respondents on this website, this woman apparently didn’t even read the article. The implication is not at all that the small American donation is the problem; it is the evidence that these donations can be concealed and laundered, and while McCain exposed all of his donations, Obama refused, and now some horrific realizations of who these contributions are from is coming to light.

  11. Hmmm. Maybe those crowds of 100,000 that come to see Obama were actually flown in from Iran. No other explanation as to why his rallies have been drawing 20-30 times more people than McCain’s.

    Do some math. There are about 86 million registered Democrats. Let’s say that 50 million of those voters actually plan to go to the polls and vote for Obama (about 60%). Now, let’s say that a quarter of those voters have given something to his campaign – not a stretch, given that the campaign’s relentless efforts to raise money via his website, Myspace and Facebook pages, as well as appeals through organizations such as Moveon.org, are effective. I know a few people who actually have automatic withdrawals from their checking accounts going to Obama every month, set up, I believe, through his website. So, say 12.5 million have contributed an average of $50 each. That’s 625 million dollars. See? Not so impossible.

  12. If Senator Obama wins this election, the following is what it has taken to get a very questionable, extremely inexperienced, very junior first time Senator past the mark:

    1. Senator Obama’s campaign is outspending Senator McCain’s campaign 4 to 1 or more in some locations. This is due to Senator Obama backing out of an agreement he made with Senator McCain.
    2. Senator Obama’s campaign has opened up about 700 offices nation-wide versus less than 100 than Senator McCain’s campaign has opened up.
    3. The mainstream media has been completely biased against Senator McCain.
    4. Biased organizations, such as ACORN, have received contributions from Senator Obama, have been openly supporting Senator Obama, and are under investigation for committing voter registration fraud in multiple states favoring Senator Obama.
    5 An enormous number of biased celebrities have been supporting Senator Obama and speaking out against Senator McCain.
    6. Even though Congress is very unpopular, both sides are controlled by the democrats and have been making biased statements against Senator McCain.
    7. Senator McCain is disadvantaged because of the unpopularity of the incumbent President.
    8. All four of the debate moderators lean to the left and were not 100% fair.

    Even with all of the biased and unfair things mentioned above that are running against Senator McCain, Senator Obama only has a narrow lead. Should he not be way out in front? I have heard people state that on the news from both campaigns. That should tell you something. Also, Senator Obama pulled a cheap shot on Senator McCain and the American public in regards to campaign financing. Both campaigns agreed to use public financing during the presidential campaign. At the last moment, Senator Obama backed out of his agreement and took private financing, giving Senator Obama a significant advantage over Senator McCain in financing his campaign. In addition, Senator Obama is not being totally open as to where all his contributions are coming from. But even though Senator Obama took a sucker punch and tricked Senator McCain and all Americans by backing out of his agreement, Senator McCain is keeping with his word and using public financing. This is severely disadvantaging Senator McCain’s campaign financing by putting much lower caps on the amount of money he will have available. This is the reason Senator Obama can outspend Senator McCain 4 to 1. This also shows that Senator Obama does not keep his campaign promises, just like his past campaign promises.

    Just imagine what it will be like when you have both the House of Representatives and the Senate controlled by the democrats, and Senator Obama in the Whitehouse signing everything that comes across his desk from them. In other words, the person writing the check will also be the one cashing it. There will be no “checks and balances”, especially if the democrats pick up a few more seats in the Senate and it becomes filibuster-proof, which means they will have a monopoly. Again, there will be no checks and balances. We will have higher taxes, more government, and fewer rights. They have already promised all of those things. You will have a government that will tax the people that are creating the jobs so they can “spread the wealth around”. Who do you think creates the jobs in this country? Have you ever seen a business owned by a poor person? Are they the ones starting small businesses and creating jobs? Obviously not! So we have established the fact that the people that own the small businesses and create the jobs are NOT the poor. So lets talk about what is going to happen when they start taxing the people that do own the small businesses that create the jobs.

    So what do you think will happen when they start taxing the small business owners? First, jobs will be lost. They will not be able to afford to keep the same amount of people they have now – they will have to let people go. In addition, they will not be able to expand their businesses and hire more people. The second thing that will happen is that prices will go up. Do you think businesses will not raise the cost of their products and services to offset the extra taxes they have to pay? This should be obvious. The prices will go up on everything and will affect everybody – to include the middle class and the poor. When you go to the grocery store, the food prices will be higher. When you go buy a car, the prices will be higher. When you go to the department store the prices are going to be higher. Put yourself in the shoes of a business owner; if your expenses go up, would you not raise the price of your products to pay for them? Of course you would! And taxes are an expense.

    Now lets talk about presidential qualifications. When a federal employee or a member of the military has a need to have access to classified materials, they would need to get a security clearance. A security clearance attempts to certify that an individual is of high moral character and does not pose a security risk. If a federal employee or a member of the military admits to using a dangerous drug, such as cocaine, they will not be eligible for a security clearance. In addition, an admitted cocaine user would not be able to get in the military and if he or she is a federal employee, he or she would be moved to a position of lesser responsibility and not have access to classified materials. Senator Obama has admitted to using cocaine in his book that he wrote. As a candidate for president, should he not be held up to the same standards of a federal employee or a member of our military? As President, he is going to be exposed to an enormous amount of classified materials, have his finger on the nuke button, and be the commander in chief of the strongest military in the world. Would you not want someone in that position that can qualify for a security clearance?

    Another point I would like to make is in regards to Senator Obama’s experience, which is a drop in the bucket compared to Senator McCain’s. With the world and the economy in such a delicate position, I cannot imagine why anyone would not want the most experienced person in the Whitehouse. Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and even Senator Obama’s running mate, Senator Joe Biden, have made statements to the fact that Senator Obama is not experienced enough to be President and that the presidency is not the type of job for on-the-job training. They also said that Senator McCain brings a lifetime of experience to the table. Senator Obama’s running mate, Senator Biden, even said he would even be honored to run “with” his friend John McCain. These individuals are now claiming that they said that during the primaries when they were running against Senator Obama. Does that mean they were lying then, or now? Senator Obama claimed that he had more diverse foreign policy experience because he lived overseas as a kid. Living overseas does not give you foreign policy experience, unless you are an Ambassador, which he was not. If it did, then Senator John McCain would again best Senator Obama’s record since he has lived overseas being a member of the military.

    What issue or issues are you going to base your voting decision on? Will it be the economy? National defense? Education? There are so many out there. Because of the current economic situation, a large number of you are going to base your decision on who is best for the economy. I would hope that I have answered this question for you earlier on in this article. Such as pointing out which candidate has promised to raise taxes and spend more reducing jobs and raising the cost to live. But just in case I have not, I have a couple additional items for you to think about. If you look at all of the campaign promises on Senator Obama’s web site, you will see hundreds of them. How is he going to pay for them? I think I answered that already. But, if you add of the costs of all of them, mathematically it is going to cost us a lot more than he will be able to raise in taxes. So many of these are going to be just like so many of his previous campaign promises – they won’t get done. Maybe the economy is not the best issue to use in making a decision for president. What about national defense? In my opinion, if you don’t have a secure nation, the rest of the issues are moot. With Russia and China outspending us two fold to build up their military; with Iran and North Korea toying around with nukes and making threats; with Russia making friends and conducting military exercises not too far from our back door in Venezuela; with Russia helping Iran build nuclear processing material plants; and with the terrorist threat growing in Pakistan (a nuclear country), Afghanistan, Africa, and several other countries throughout the world, I want the most experienced and tested person in that office. Not some junior Senator that has absolutely no experience in national security. The economy is important, but national defense is a must. Remember, if our country is not secure, then the economy means nothing, our freedom is in jeopardy, and our lives as we know them today could easily be drastically changed in a moments notice. Just ask the citizens of the country of Georgia. One last point: Have you see who is openly supporting Senator Obama in the news? Iran and the terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah have made public statements that they would prefer Sen. Obama to win. Go figure.

    So after reading this, where do you stand? The differences in these two candidates are very apparent. On one hand, you have an individual with many years of applicable “real world” experience, has been a public servant and leader for about 50 years, has a proven record to reduce taxes and government spending, and is dedicated to growing the US economy and jobs. On the other hand, you have an individual with very little experience, questionable associations, has a proven record to increase taxes, government spending, and earmarks, and has promised to increase taxes and government spending. As I said at the beginning of this article, I cannot imagine why anyone in their right mind, after doing a real comparison of the two candidates, would vote for Senator Obama. I admit, he presents himself well and has a good appearance, as long as he has a teleprompter to read from. So the bottom line is what do you want in the next president, appearance or substance?
