Dem ‘Trackers’ Tape and Post Videos of GOP Incumbant’s Homes Online (Nothing New For the Organized Left)

Democrat campaign operatives are hounding their political enemies at home in what is nothing more than a continuation of an intimidation tactic the organized left had been using against its perceived enemies for years. Think of their protests outside the homes of bank executives. Think of the Obama campaign’s posting of an online ‘enemies list’ of Republican donors. Think also of  how the Kimberlin/Rauhauser cabal uses the same tactic to intimidate their enemies on the sicko website Breitbart Unmasked. (Safe link –  it’s not recommended that you visit Breitbart Unmasked’s malware infected site.)

The Dem operatives are posting videos of Republican candidates’ homes on YouTube to make some kind of class warfare point about income inequality, and also, possibly, to dog whistle left-wing occupy freaks into harassing them at their homes.

The Dems’ bottomless pit of perfidy never ceases to amaze.

Via Gateway Pundit:

The Democrats don’t feel the least bit guilty for this harassment. In fact, they are defending this tactic.
FOX News reported, via Lucianne:

Video “trackers” are a mainstay on the campaign trail nowadays. Dispatched by candidates to shadow their rivals, they lurk in the crowds and the receiving lines waiting for the opponent to slip up, then capture the embarrassing moment on camera and post it online.

But this season, Democrats are taking the practice to a new and, some say, uncomfortable level by recording the homes of some Republican incumbents.

Two of the recent targets this year have been Ohio Rep. Jim Renacci and Wisconsin Rep. Reid Ribble, whose homes appear in roughly 30-second video clips posted online.

“It really crosses a line,” Ribble told Fox News. “I think it’s fair game for a tracker or the other party to tape what you’re saying. But this doesn’t do anything for them or the political process. And quite frankly it really disturbed my wife.”

In the Ribble video, posted online June 18, his Wisconsin home is filmed from several different angles on a windy day. It’s unclear whether anyone was home when the video, which has no sound, was shot. The Renacci video follows the same formula — straight, raw footage of the congressman’s home posted to YouTube.

The DCCC  actually defends this practice.

“House Republicans have spent this entire Congress trying to hide that they’re protecting benefits for millionaires and perks for themselves instead of protecting the middle class. But we won’t let them keep it secret any longer,” said Jesse Ferguson, spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

The rival National Republican Congressional Committee also uses trackers, but in a more limited scope, spokesman Paul Lindsay said.

“Our trackers serve as eyes and ears to hold Democrats accountable in public events and public spaces only,” he said. “Anything beyond that would be a violation of our policy.”

Megyn Kelly interviewed two Republican incumbents about how they felt about having their homes videotaped and posted online. You can watch the interview at Gateway Pundit.

Romney Demands Apology Over Obama Official’s “Over the Top” Felony Remark

Stephenie Cutter

In a conference call with friendly reporters this morning about the Boston Globe report that alleged that Romney stayed at Bain Capital three years past when he said he’d left, Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter, said that there were two ways to interpret the story.

The first: Mitt Romney was “misrepresenting his position” at Bain to the Securities and Exchange Commission, “which is a felony.”

Or, he was “misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people. If that’s the case, if he was lying to the American people, that’s a real character and trust issue,” Cutter said.

In fact, there is a third way to interpret the story: ObamaMedia desperation:  ‘Boston Globe’ Reports Old News As New Bain Blockbuster:

Well, I’m sorry Boston Globe and the entire left-wing media cabal currently attempting to blow old news up into some kind of “game-changer,” but there’s nothing to see here.

***

Romney left Bain Capital in February of 1999 to run the Olympics in Salt Lake City. This was like a leave of absence and anyone at all familiar with a leave of absence understands that during a leave you do not give up your title or status, even though you’re not in any way involved with the company.

As Breitbart news Editor-In-Chief pointed out earlier today, not only is the Globe’s big gotcha old news, it’s also a charge against Romney that was fully litigated and settled back in 2002.

The fact that an Obama official would actually suggest  his political opponent engaged in a felony, ramped up the rancor in this already ugly campaign season to a startling degree. Does this mean Obama  is recommending that his political opponent be investigated for “misrepresenting his position”, (which fact checkers already say he didn’t?)

Now, Fox News reports that the Romney campaign is demanding an apology from Obama for the spurious charge.

Obama official Stephanie Cutter made the claim following a Boston Globe article that said documents show Romney was in charge at Bain for three years longer than he had claimed. Cutter said Romney was either misrepresenting his position at Bain to the Securities and Exchange Commission, “which is a felony,” or misrepresenting to the American people.

Romney campaign manager Matt Rhoades issued a blistering statement in response.

“President Obama’s campaign hit a new low today when one of its senior advisers made a reckless and unsubstantiated charge to reporters about Mitt Romney that was so over the top that it calls into question the integrity of their entire campaign,” Rhoades said. “President Obama ought to apologize for the out-of-control behavior of his staff, which demeans the office he holds. Campaigns are supposed to be hard fought, but statements like those made by Stephanie Cutter belittle the process and the candidate on whose behalf she works.” 

Romney’s campaign issued a statement Thursday from Bain that said Romney “left Bain Capital in February 1999 to run the Olympics and has had absolutely no involvement with the management or investment activities of the firm or with any of its portfolio companies since the day of his departure. Due to the sudden nature of Mr. Romney’s departure, he remained the sole stockholder for a time while formal ownership was being documented and transferred to the group of partners who took over management of the firm in 1999. Accordingly, Mr. Romney was reported in various capacities on SEC filings during this period.”

Occupy The DNC! (Not What You’d Expect)

Thousands of disgruntled protesters are expected to descend upon Charlotte September 5th-6th for the Democrat National Convention.

Occupy The DNC 2012:

LibertyStock: Occupy the DNC 2012… There’s never been a better reason to party!

The media has us convinced this year’s election is all about “Right/Left” politics. It’s their surefire way to keep the voting populace in a polarized, do-nothing, disenfranchised state of status-quo.

The message of the original Tea Party Movement has been diluted. The calls for taxation with fair representation (including the wise management of those tax dollars), and a restoration to our Constitutional Republic have been drowned out by extremism from every corner. This has left many asking the question, “When can we get back to the Founder’s passion for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?”

We’re here to tell you the time for reclaiming our united spirit, our passion for liberty, and the American dream is at hand…

New Pro-Obama Movie Seeks To Revive Obama Cult-of-Personality Fanaticism

Ben Howe calls it The Most Incredible Movie Trailer I Have Ever Seen.

Ace calls it another Superhero movie.

And it’s REAL. You will want to think it’s a parody, but nope, this is an actual thing – you’re gonna love their caricature of the black Republican:

It’s essentially a ninety minute campaign video that will be premiering July 13 in movie theaters across the country.

“The Obama Effect” starring Katt Williams, Charles S. Dutton, Meagan Good, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Emilio Rivera, Glynn Turman and Zab Judah.

In the beginning of the 21st century, no one ever thought that an African-American would become the first President of the United States. But it happened, and an entire country celebrated the exceptional efforts pulled off by citizens ready for sweeping change. But this change didn’t come without effort. It required a unification of all people from all races and nationalities, which is what “The Obama Effect” is about.

This film centers around a middle-aged man (Charles S. Dutton) who is faced with some difficult life questions after having a heart attack. Attempting to get back on track with his life, he takes on the Obama campaign with full force in an effort to fight for something he believes in. In the end, he not only learns that putting effort into something can yield unexpected results, but that fighting for something you believe in, including yourself, is what life is all about.

What is it exactly that he’s “fighting for”?  Increasing debt, more dependency on government? High unemployment?

UGH…

Oh Boy: Obama Camp Hitting Romney Back – Says He’s a Big Fat Liar, and Possibly a Criminal, Too

Oh, and of course they held a conference call with MSMers to give them these talking points…

Via Buzzfeed:

Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter suggested that Mitt Romney may be a criminal on a conference call with reporters this morning about a Boston Globe report that shows that Romney stayed at Bain Capital three years past when he said he’d left.

Cutter said that there were two ways to interpret the story. The first: Mitt Romney was “misrepresenting his position” at Bain to the Securities and Exchange Commission, “which is a felony.”

Or, he was “misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people. If that’s the case, if he was lying to the American people, that’s a real character and trust issue,” Cutter said.

(Oh, my gosh — the projection)

Cutter called on the Romney campaign to clear up by the issue by releasing the candidate’s tax returns.

“If the SEC filings aren’t accurate, then prove it,” she said.

Wow, could  this Boston Globe bombshell spell the end for the potential criminal, Romney? Looks like they’ve got him on the ropes with this blockbuster news………..

……..that is actually old news.

Take it away John Nolte at Big Journalism: ‘Boston Globe’ Reports Old News As New Bain Blockbuster:

Well, I’m sorry Boston Globe and the entire left-wing media cabal currently attempting to blow old news up into some kind of “game-changer,” but there’s nothing to see here.

From the Washington Post BACK IN MAY:

We discovered that Romney’s name appeared on Bain SEC filings between 1999 and 2002. But a 2002 statement the former executive filed with the Massachusetts State Ethics Commission said he was a “passive, limited partner [with] no management capacity” in the Bain entities in which he held ownership.

We also learned that the creditors who sued some of Bain’s companies and executives over dividend payments around the time in question did not name Romney in their lawsuit. Plaintiffs generally try to list as many people as possible as defendants to encourage settlement, so it’s highly unlikely that Romney had any involvement with Bain’s businesses during this period.  

These facts essentially exonerate Romney from allegations that he was responsible for any outsourcing, bad deals and layoffs that occurred with Bain’s companies in the early 2000s. (Note: it may make a difference if the initial investment took place while Romney was actively running Bain Capital, but that is not the case here.) So that leaves just one possible example of outsourcing out of scores of investments made by Bain under Romney’s leadership.

The only thing new about what the Boston Globe reported today is that we now know the media is so desperate to save Obama that it will now resurrect old news as Major Gotcha Scoops and is doing so in obvious coordination with the Obama campaign. Within hours of the Globe’s story hitting, Team Obama had already scheduled a conference call with reporters.

Well, we see how that went. “Mitt Romney may be a criminal”…

The truth:

Romney left Bain Capital in February of 1999 to run the Olympics in Salt Lake City. This was like a leave of absence and anyone at all familiar with a leave of absence understands that during a leave you do not give up your title or status, even though you’re not in any way involved with the company.

As Breitbart news Editor-In-Chief pointed out earlier today, not only is the Globe’s big gotcha old news, it’s also a charge against Romney that was fully litigated and settled back in 2002.

As Nolte says, this is an old news –  an old nothingburger they’re trying to  re-spin into something sinister. Don’t let them get away with it.You can stop the Democrat media complex’s latest false narrative by linking, tweeting and telling the truth.

Video: New Romney Ad Hits Obama on His Lack of Honesty

This is a start…

Video via The Corner

The opening line was great: “When a president doesn’t tell the truth, how can we trust him to lead?” But it just leads to Obama’s dishonest campaign mudslinging, (which  people kind of expect to see during a close race.)  I think it’s a mistake to just focus only on Obama’s dishonest campaign.

How about his entire dishonest presidency? His repeated lies about ObamaCare? Etc?

The American people will be more offended by Obama’s deceptive nature when they see how they themselves have victimized by it.

To repeat:

In an oped at Big Government, Pat Caddell offered sound advice that the Romney campaign should heed:

The challenge is to keep the focus on the tax–the ObamaTax.  Obamacare is many things, but the biggest single thing is the thing that they said it wasn’t–the ObamaTax.

The American people have shown that they can tolerate incompetent policy.  But what they will not tolerate is being lied to.  As a Jesuit might say, incompetence is a venial sin, but deception is a mortal sin.  And so if troubling questions about Barack Obama’s incompetence turn into serious concerns about his character, the President will lose.

Hopefully, this ad is the first of many more on the same “dishonest” theme – but hitting Obama on his  lack of honesty in everything, especially Obamatax..
