“Non-Partisan” OFA “FACT” – Trolling GOP Using @BarackObama Twitter account

On multiple occasions,  Jay Carney has referred to Obama’s campaign arm, Organizing for Action as an “outside “, “non partisan”, “independent”, or “separate” group.

He said at a recent press briefing that OFA  “is this is a separate organization, as we’ve noted, the existence of which is perfectly appropriate and the White House will engage with it consistent in the way with it has engaged with a whole host of outside constituencies.”

It’s so “separate”, the President sent out email to his supporters on January 18, 2013, entreating them to join theorganization.

It’s so “independent”, it’s recruitment video was promoted by the First Lady from her White House office.

It’s so “non partisan” it’s tweeting under the name of @BarackObama.

Twitchy reported:

Hmm? Funny, that. As Twitchy reported, many are wondering why the @BarackObama Twitter feed is still verified now that it is being run by independent (wink, wink Nudge, nudge) Organizing for Action. We also want to know why a totally “non-partisan” and “independent” organization is using that feed to troll and blame the GOP. The Twitter feed is trolling once again today.

Meanwhile in a stunning reversal of the promised transparency, Organizing For Action has decided not to disclose its donors, (watchdogs mostly silent.)

Remember when Organizing for Action – the so-called non-partisan 501(c)4 group aimed at disseminating and lobbying for Obama’s agenda – would release the names of its donors, especially the ones who give big to the organization.  Well, they’ve decided to nix that, not that the liberal media care to note the reversal.The Washington Free Beacon reported today that:

President Barack Obama’s recently formed dark-money group Organizing for Action confirmed to the Center for Public Integrity Thursday that it would not release donor information such as employer and occupation despite collecting the data in its online donor application.

The Center for Public Integrity reports:

“Our voluntary disclosure will be posted on our website with the exact dollar donation, name and city and state of the donor,” Organizing for Action spokeswoman Katie Hogan told the Center for Public Integrity.

As a practical matter, a lack of employer and occupation information makes it more difficult for the public to determine the corporate, union or special interest ties donors may have.

It also complicates confirming their identities, particularly when they have common names. A similar issue arose when Obama’s inauguration committee released the names of its donors, but no other identifying information. …

Organizing for Action — the successor organization to Obama’s re-election campaign — is not compelled by law to release any of its donor information because it was established as a 501(c)(4) ”social welfare” nonprofit group and falls under the auspices of the Internal Revenue Service. It may raise and spend unlimited amounts of money, but electing politicians cannot be its primary purpose.

OFA has been accused by many of selling access to the president, which isn’t uncommon, but Obama campaigned against such business-as-usual politics when he ran in 2008.  However, given this administration’s penchant to keep various parts of its governing apparatus hidden from the public – and the fact that the co-founder of the liberal ethics watchdog CREW is now the White House’ ethics czar – the watchdog community in D.C. has remained silent since OFA’s inception.

Like I said — stunning.
I’m sure the MSM will soon be all over this.

Rand Paul Hits Back at Limbaugh and Coulter: “Newsflash – What We’ve Got Now Is Defacto Amnesty” (Video)

Today on Fox News, Senator Rand Paul discussed his immigration reform proposal, and hit back at critics like Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh who say he supports ‘amnesty’.

Via The Daily Caller:

“I’ve got a news flash for those who want to call people names on amnesty: What we have now is de facto amnesty,” Paul replied. “We have 11 million people here that have been here — some of them for a decade or more. No one is telling them to go home. … So I would say if you want to work, we’ll find a place for you. But that doesn’t mean you get special privileges. It just means we’ll get you a work visa.”

He went on to say that not only is his proposal, the right thing to do, but “it’s a way to expand the Republican Party to where people will listen to us, because they say it’s a reasonable position.”

 

Video: Jason Mattera Queries Jim Messina on Obama’s Fox News And Rush Limbaugh Attacks – Asks About Creepy Messages on His Hands

Via Big Journalism, comes a #winning video from Talk Radio Network chief investigative reporter Jason Mattera catching up to Obama’s 2012 campaign manager and director of Organizing for Action Jim Messina.

Mattera’s specialty is getting public figures to embarrass themselves on camera, and this video is no exception, as he managed to illicit a denial from Messina that Obama engages in attacks on Fox News and Rush Limbaugh. Hilarious, considering the wealth of evidence to the contrary. The video touches on only a few examples from the past few years.

The Regime’s ham-handed attempts to delegitimize Fox News in 2009 were so egregious, members of the MSM actually took Fox’s side, calling the Obama White House efforts “Nixonian.”

As Big Journalism noted:

The fun video highlights a more important point, however. Obama’s bullying focus on members of the media who do not parrot his administration’s talking points has created a climate of intimidation in media. Modus operandi at the White House has become cutting off all adverse media at the knees, ensuring that they do not gain access to the White House, and whipping up public pressure to silence those outlets.

After a San Francisco Chronicle reporter posted a video of protesters at an Obama fundraiser, the White House threatened to bar the paper from future events. The Boston Herald claimed the Obama campaign would not give it full access to a local fundraiser for the President because the paper featured an op-ed from Mitt Romney on its front page.

Radio host Rush Limbaugh asserted Obama was “part of” a “secondary boycott” against Fox News, a concept credited to Breitbart News editor-at-large Ben Shapiro in response to the President’s remarks that “If a Republican member of Congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh for working with a Democrat on a bill of common interest, then you’ll see more of them doing it.”

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson said in a radio interview that White House staffers screamed and swore at her while discussing her coverage of the Department of Justice’s “Fast and Furious” scandal. Attkisson claimed the Obama Administration said that more friendly media outlets were “reasonable,” implying she was abnormal.

Attkisson’s account matches veteran reporter Bob Woodward’s interaction with a White House official who reportedly yelled at him for a half hour before sending him an apology email which also said he would “regret” printing a story critical of Obama’s messaging during debate over sequestration cuts. That threat came to fruition as numerous left-wing journalists mocked and belittled Woodward.

As I’ve said so many times before: Obama is not a nice guy. He’s a malicious deceiver. In an article that could have been penned by me, Ron Ross of the American Spectator, noted that the country is in a state of denial about this:

Barack Obama is arrogant, intolerant, mean, dishonest, vengeful, and ruthless. He does not wish us well. He is considered by many of his supporters to be a savior. In fact, he’s a destroyer. Is that an unfair indictment? Consider the evidence.

The economy is operating far below its potential. Is he doing anything to discover why? Millions of people are unable to find jobs. Does he seem concerned? He has an abysmal ignorance of how a market economy actually works. He doesn’t show the slightest curiosity about the causes of our economic distress.

He doesn’t know what he’s doing and he doesn’t care that he doesn’t know. He’s so incredibility arrogant, he doesn’t think he even needs to know. The very fact that he thought he was qualified to fill the most important office in the world demonstrates his profound arrogance.

Obama sees no difference between his opinions and the truth. He assumes whatever he says is true simply by the act of saying it. He claims to have proposed $3.9 trillion in budget cuts but no one can explain what he’s referring to. He doesn’t seem to recognize that there is such a thing as the truth.

The reason he has to use a teleprompter is to keep himself from expressing what he really thinks. Honesty or sincerity would lead to his undoing.

Keep reading Ross is just getting started…

Under responsible stewardship, this country’s economy could be roaring back to economic health – not limping toward its now almost inevitable demise.
