Obama To Get Away With His Massive Campaign Finance Fraud

I’m too disgusted to comment on this:

The Federal Election Commission is unlikely to conduct a potentially embarrassing audit of how Barack Obama raised and spent his presidential campaign’s record-shattering windfall, despite allegations of questionable donations and accounting that had the McCain campaign crying foul.

Adding insult to injury for Republicans: The FEC is obligated to complete a rigorous audit of McCain’s campaign coffers, which will take months, if not years, and cost McCain millions of dollars to defend.

Obama is expected to escape that level of scrutiny mostly because he declined an $84 million public grant for his campaign that automatically triggers an audit and because the sheer volume of cash he raised and spent minimizes the significance of his errors. Another factor: The FEC, which would have to vote to launch an audit, is prone to deadlocking on issues that inordinately impact one party or the other – like approving a messy and high-profile probe of a sitting president.

“Messy”, “embarrassing”….we can’t have that. Much better to allow someone to get away with high stakes illegalities.

Much more at Gateway Pundit.

Veteran’s Day 2008

A tribute to America’s veterans:

Project Valour-IT kicks off its annual fund drive, today:

Every cent raised for Project Valour-IT goes directly to the purchase and shipment of laptops and other technology for severely wounded service members. As of November 2008, Valour-IT has distributed over 2700 laptops to severely wounded Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines across the country, and is now expanding its mission to include other technology that supports physical and psychological recovery.

See Soldiers Angels if you would like to contribute.

Another worthy cause: Operation Gratitude.

Gift Giving Opportunities For The Upcoming Obama National Holiday

As plans are formulated to promote a new national holiday for Barack Obama, it might be wise to consider ways to celebrate. Obama has proven over and over again throughout this election year that his hubris and narcissism knows no bounds, and while most President elects would poo poo such an outlandish idea, Obama has so far done no such thing, and is in fact, probably already looking at this idea as a fate accompli.

So here are some gift giving ideas for the Obama cultist on your list:

This hand-crafted and hand-painted Obama model airplane was inspired by Obama’s “inspirational campaign”;  “durable and beautifully designed for keeping for many years to come”.

The Obama wall clock:


How about this Obama tee-shirt?


The official “Yes We Can” Album/CD:


Here’s an idea! An Obama Ornament for Your Obama tree:


And it’s not too late to own a piece of history: the faux-leather-bound collector’s edition DVD of the “More Perfect Union” speech.


These are just a few ideas, of course. Without any effort at all, you can find many more unique gifts on the internet to give to the Obama cultist on your list.

A word to the cultists, though: Better secure that Obama National Holiday before he has a chance to…ya know ….screw things up too bad. That could be a deal breaker.


Uh oh. Looks like the Obama National Holiday promotion has hit some snags. There’s not as much support for the idea as originally thought. But the NAACP appears to be behind the idea:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, for one, was receptive if not officially behind the idea. Hilary Shelton, the national vice president of advocacy, said Obama’s election was of tremendous significance for “a community that was once enslaved.”

“Certainly this very historic moment in our history is something that should be recognized, commemorated and celebrated,” Shelton said.
