Video: Obama And DNC Accuse Karl Rove And Ed Gillespie Of “Stealing Our Democracy”

Via the Political Ticker:

They are tossing out these baseless charges,” Rove said Sunday during an appearance on Fox News.

The comments come the same day the DNC announced it is launching a national television ad targeting Rove and another former Bush aide, Ed Gillespie, over their involvement with an issue advocacy group called Crossroads GPS that by law – because it is established as a non-profit – does not have to reveal its donors.

The organization has spent millions airing anti-Democratic ads in key races and faces charges that they are bending campaign finance laws by structuring itself as a tax-exempt “social welfare” 501(c)(4) organization.

The ad also takes aim at the United States Chamber of Commerce, a pro-business lobby that heavily donates to Republican candidates across the country and which Obama and other Democrats have accused of using money from foreign donors -– a charge the chamber has denied.

How many times has the “business friendly” Obama gone after the Chamber of Commerce, now? Wow.

Here’s the ad:

Zut alors,  I’ve already made this point once, so I won’t belabor it, but are they freaking kidding me with the “secret foreign money” assploding hypocrisy?

They really think you’re stupid…they have no regard for the truth…and they have nothing but contempt for the American voter.*spit!*

Karl Rove responded by saying: “This is just beyond the pale, how dare the President do this!”:

“Have these people no shame?” Rove said of the attacks leveled at him and the Chamber. “Does the president of the United States have such little regard for the office he holds that he goes out there and makes these kind of baseless charges against his political enemies? This is just beyond the pale. How dare the president do this?”

“This is a desperate and I think disturbing trend by the President of the United States to tar his political adversaries with some kind of enemies list, without being unrestrained by any facts or evidence whatsoever.”

Pure Alinsky. Accuse your opponent of doing what you are guilty of.

As Gillespie noted in his comments about the allegations against the Chamber of Commerce:

“That was based on a blog posting that the President of the United States repeated that was put on a website that’s affiliated with Center for American Progress, a liberal nonprofit advocacy group that does not disclose its donors.”


The American Thinker notes who  this all leads to….

Soros is pulling the strings of his puppets — again.

Think Progress is a branch of the Center for American Progress, the think-tank founded and funded to a great extent by George Soros and his political allies, Herb and Marion Sandler. The Center has been described by Bloomberg News as the “Soros-Funded Democratic Idea Factory.” The CAP also provided the administration with many of its officials, including the controversial Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones (he returned to his sinecure at the CAP when he was “resigned” in the wake of revelations about his radicalism). The head of the CAP, John Podesta, managed the transition from Senator Obama to President Obama. The Obama administration has plenty of alums from the Center for American Progress.

The entire campaign is dishonest in the extreme. Michael Barone calls it “projection” because Obama’s own 2008 campaign all but invited foreign donations:

… it’s well documented that the 2008 Obama campaign did not put in place address verification software that would have routinely prevented most foreign donations. In effect they were encouraging donations by foreign nationals.  Here’s the Washington Post on this back in October 2008:

“Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign is allowing donors to 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, campaign officials confirmed. Faced with a huge influx of donations over the Internet, the campaign has also chosen not to use basic security measures to prevent potentially illegal or anonymous contributions from flowing into its accounts, aides acknowledged.” (snip)Then there’s the question of whether foreign nationals are contributing to the Obama campaign. There is more than enough evidence to warrant a full-scale investigation by the Federal Election Commission, including the $32,332.19 that appears to have come from two brothers living in a Hamas-controlled Palestinian refugee camp in Rafah, GA (that’s Gaza, not Georgia). The brothers’ cash is part of a flood of illegal foreign contributions accepted by the Obama campaign. 


Dishonest in the extreme is putting it nicely, but sadly, it’s not at all surprising coming from this deplorable, villainous cabal.


Better check out Michelle Malkin, today, because she is all over this: Newly nativist Democrats and their own foreign funny money

The Obama White House has been an echo chamber for the Soros-funded Center for American Progress from Day One — from bashing Fox News, attacking talk radio, and pimping “media justice” and the Orwellian Fairness Doctrine, to crusading for the government health care takeover using Astroturfed doctors and taxpayer-funded operatives installed in the health care bureaucracy.

Team Obama has gotten away with its left-wing myna bird routine. Until now.

If the stench got too bad for even the NYTs, you know it’s bad.

The New York Times concluded on Friday that “there is little evidence that what the chamber does in collecting overseas dues is improper or even unusual, according to both liberal and conservative election-law lawyers and campaign finance documents. In fact, the controversy over the Chamber of Commerce financing may say more about the Washington spin cycle — where an Internet blog posting can be quickly picked up by like-minded groups and become political fodder for the president himself — than it does about the vagaries of campaign finance.”

And via Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters, liberal CBS journalist Bob Schieffer castigated White House senior adviser David Axelrod for the pathetic attack — which Schieffer derided as “peanuts:”

Michelle advises Republican candidates being hit with this smear to hit back twice as hard, and provides them with the the foreign Dem donor dossier free of charge. Since this is the meme  Dems are apparently gonna double-down on (what else do they have), Republicans would do well to heed her advice.


This is an administration that apparently has never learned the difference between being a political campaign and serving in the government.  In the former situation, this would constitute slander, which is bad enough.  When it comes from the government, it’s a form of tyranny — an attempt to use the power of government to silence dissent.

GOTV and Voter Fraud Damage Control

Every election I can remember has been hailed by conservatives as “the most important election in our lifetimes”. The reason for that is simple. Every election has been “the most important election in our lifetimes”, because every day for the past 40 years, even when  Republicans have held the majority in Congress, we have been losing the culture war, and losing it badly.

Every day, for the past forty years, leftists has been chipping away at our culture and institutions, changing the very fabric of our society from one of  largely self-starting, rugged individualists,  to one with  an ever increasing  amoral, dependent, victim class mentality that leeches off the Government. Democrat policies encourage the second type of citizen, because government largess is their stock and trade, and the more Dems get elected, the worse it gets.

The  Republican establishment, ever earning the title of the “stupid party”, has historically been ill-equipped to deal with the problem. For decades they have allowed thoroughly corrupt and illegal Dem organizations to run roughshod over the rights of the majority, out of a misplaced fear of seeming un-PC. That’s why we had ACORN committing voter fraud for decades without being investigated. That’s why we have a criminal front group like Media Matters out there masquerading as a non partisan, non profit organization, when they should have been put out of business back when Republicans held the White House and majorities in Congress. That’s also why government has been allowed to bloat to the size it has…because throwing money at ineffective solutions to problems often seems like the most compassionate way to go.

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee have waved through the nominations of judges who, their records showed, were hostile to our Constitution. A fidelity to, and appreciation for, the United States Constitution  should be  a non-negotiable requirement for any judge in the land, but especially those serving on the highest courts. Because of this lack of vigilance,  we see, again and again, the will of the people thwarted by activist judges, making laws, rather than interpreting them.

We end up every election year at the point where we just can’t take it any more. We know liberal policies are destroying the nation, so Republicans are trusted with the task of setting things right, again. And when elected to majorities,  they take us three steps forward, and five steps backwards.  Right now, with Dems in control, we are 100 steps backwards, and ready to go off the cliff.  Yes, this is the most important election of our lifetimes, and even with the polls so heavily in our favor, there are reasons for concern.

Dirty campaigning, and voter fraud is always a concern, but this year, it will be worse than ever. Desperate times call for desperate measures, and with the ACORN President’s tacit approval, Dems will be reaching into their bag of tricks like never before.

The Holder Justice Dept has no interest in protecting the integrity of the vote, nor the rights of American voters. To the contrary,  they are determined  to protect our non-citizens in the critical years ahead, putting 2010  in jeopardy.

Missouri has already seen voter fraud in an Aug 3 KC primary, and the same thing will happen again in November, unless we fight it.

Now that early voting has started in some states,  stories are trickling in about how unions and their allies could be stealing November elections, already.

I am reminded of the helpless feeling I had watching the early voting shenanigans in Ohio, under corrupt ACORN stooge,  Jennifer Brunner. I remember thinking that Ohio was being stolen right under our noses.

One thing is for sure. Republicans can not win in a close race in many blue states. And we have a lot of close races going into the elections this November.

What can be done?

Ace is calling for a massive Republican GOTV effort: I Summon The Power of the Online Army: It’s Time To Be The Wave

So you can either sit on your asses and just read about the wave, which won’t come, because you’re not making it come, or you can be the wave.

And, again, contact your local GOP offices to find out how you can help.

He’ll be announcing a big GOTV campaign “intended to unite the Online Armies in getting together over the next few weekends to phone bank, knock on doors, all of that”:

The plan is to get bloggers, twitters, and commenters (and lurkers too!) to sign up to adopt a district or whatever and make this Big Red Bitch really hit hard.

I don’t know what kind of numbers we can get. My hope, though, is that we get about 100 or 200 bloggers and big-time twitterers to come out, and then maybe each of us gets 10 or 15 of our more local buddies to come out for it. And other people just sign up anyway because they feel kind of guilty.

So I’m hoping we can get maybe another 2000 in ground troops for the election, coming out one weekend, maybe all weekends before the election.

That’s the hope.

And I hope it comes together on Monday. Fingers crossed. I have an ally determined to pull this off bringing it together (under the banner of a major allied organization). If not Monday, soon after.

To be honest, I’m not as worried about GOTV, as much as I am the integrity of the vote.

Ex-ACORN employee, and anti-voter fraud warrior, Anita Moncrief has some ideas on that front: A national call to action: One citizen, one vote

Inspired by the first ever Beverly Hills Tea Party, the situation is that as Americans we need boots on the ground across the nation at the polls, not only to vote but ready with cameras and video recorders. This is a national call for citizen journalists!! If you are a volunteer working the polls and you see something happen please document and record. Resolute Media Group, Emerging Corruption and other New Media outlets will use social media (i.e. Face-book and twitter) integration to get the stories out that the liberal media will not cover accurately if at all. Text “Patriot” to 90210.

When America was founded, ordinary citizens used the media to spread ideas and even those who lacked funding were able to find ways of disseminating information. As citizen journalist our role is not to interact or intimidate, but to observe and report. The left should look at this as protecting the rights of everyone and they are welcome to participate.

Jack Cashill is also urging people to call their Election Boards to be a judge or poll watcher:

Ask for an inner-city precinct. And make sure you know the law better than your Democratic counterpart does. It won’t be hard.

Here’s a video to help get you motivated:

PJMedia is announcing a new initiative for election day 2010 — “VOTER FRAUD WATCH.”   This initiative is to be carried forth on Pajamas Media and PJTV.

As almost everyone would agree, in a democracy the integrity of the vote is paramount.  If significant fraud or intimidation occurs at our polling places during an election, our democratic system of government is in peril.

PJMedia has been at the forefront of this struggle for integrity of the vote, most recently via its coverage of the Department of Justice/New Black Panther  controversy. This coverage was led by DOJ whistle blower and former attorney in the department’s voter rights division, J. Christian Adams.  Mr. Adams has agreed to lend his legal expertise to “Voter Fraud Watch.”

Finish reading at PJ Media.

If Republicans manage to win back the House and Senate, this November, I hope they understand that when the new Congress convenes in January, 2011, it can no longer be business as usual. No more reaching across the aisle, and no more compromises with Dem Socialists. They need to defund as much of  Obama’s handiwork  as they can. I want to see the investigations Issa has promised followed up on, and funding permanently cut off to outlaw leftist organizations like ACORN.   Chris Christy is showing them they way.

Scorched earth, baby.
