  • Why is Obama fundraising and why are corporations answering his cash call?

    Why is Obama getting away with a ‘12th of Never’ deadline on fundraising? Look out, America. The burning question of our day: When will Barack Obama have made enough money? When, for instance, will Obama turn off the money tap that is now pouring millions into the Obama Foundation? Not until the ‘12th of Never’, and as Johnny Mathis sings “and that’s a long, long time.”

    We will all remember the beginning of the end for Planned Parenthood as the day they tried to install pro-abortion warrior Jon Ossoff in Congress, but ended up being ‘referendumed’ instead If the truth, rather than media propaganda got to tell the story, this is what really went down in Tuesday’s special Georgia election: Planned Parenthood poured big money in trying to elect Democrat pro-abortion crusader Jon Ossoff to Congress in Tuesday’s special election in Georgia—but ended up instead aborting aborting his election chances.

  • WOW! Wikileaks Document Shows John McCain Requested Donations from Russians

    WOW! John McCain is leading a vicious campaign against the Russian government since the November election. In January McCain suggested the Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” https://youtu.be/QZu6jgNN7f0 But it wasn’t that long ago that Senator McCain requested campaign donations from Russian officials. Wikileaks released documents this week following the sudden death of Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin. There are several documents on McCain’s request for donations from the Russians.
  • Oregon Gov. Kate Brown And AG Ellen Rosenblum Blaze The Oregon Trail Of Political Patronage

    Forbes ^ | Feb. 13, 2017 | Adam Andrzejewski
    As the state contemplates an income tax hike, Oregon's elites line their pockets with taxpayer money. In 2016, as politicians across America were fleeing voter wrath, Oregon’s governor and attorney general were blazing an unlikely trail – accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from businesses with state contracts. Since 1940, at the federal level, individuals and entities negotiating or working under federal contracts are prohibited from giving political cash to candidates, parties or committees. In Oregon, however, this political patronage is perfectly legal, at least for now. Our analysis at American Transparency (OpenTheBooks.com) found 207 state contractors...

More than $900,000 had been raised to rebuild the Islamic Center of Victoria as of Monday afternoon, according to a GoFundMe page. Texas officials have yet to determine the cause of the blaze, which happened in the early hours of Saturday.

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign brushed off a high-profile supporter’s warnings against doing campaign events with a Silicon Valley CEO whose company has since imploded under the weight of layoffs, a federal criminal investigation, and rebukes from top regulators. Campaign staff circulated an internal schedule of fundraising events in March that included a “Conversation with Chelsea” event at the Palo Alto offices of biotech startup Theranos that featured the company’s chief executive Elizabeth Holmes.

    Bias? What bias? Yesterday, I had to laugh when I saw the following Tweet from Chris Cillizza. He writes “The Fix” over at the Washington Post. I wasn’t alone. Immediately he was inundated with evidence of the media’s left-wing leanings and, in particular, its coziness with the Clinton machine. At this point, it isn’t really something anyone should have to explain. Their blatant bias has been visible for decades.

    Trump/Pence Campaign 2016 ^ | 10/15/2016 | Trump/Pence
    NEW YORK, NY – Today the Donald J. Trump Campaign for President announced historic totals from September’s fundraising efforts. The $100 million haul (inclusive of TMAGA/Trump Victory) came mostly from small donors and includes a monthly $2 million dollar contribution from Mr. Trump. Mr. Trump’s contribution more than covered the costs of any reimbursements to him (or his related entities) for his plane and office rent; which the law mandates to be reimbursed. He has contributed an unprecedented amount to his campaign. This brings total raised to date (inclusive of his contributions) to 360 million dollars. The Campaign and both...

    The New York Times ^ | 30 September 2016 | NICHOLAS CONFESSORE and RACHEL SHOREY
    Democrats denounced it as an assault on democracy and a sop to billionaires when the Supreme Court issued a ruling two years ago that loosened limits on campaign giving. But Hillary Clinton and Democratic Party leaders are now exploiting the decision, funneling tens of millions of dollars from their wealthiest donors into a handful of presidential swing states. The flow of money, documented in Federal Election Commission reports, shows Democrats expanding their fund-raising advantage in the final phase of the presidential race, defying expectations at the beginning of the campaign that Republicans would dominate the money chase. The shift has...

    He’s still lagging behind the Democrats. Donald Trump has broken plenty of rules throughout his campaign, but he has also broken records. According to Politico‘s reporting, which includes an analysis of Federal Election Commission filings, the Trump campaign has possibly already raised $100 million from donors who have given less than $200—more than any other GOP nominee in history. Moreover, the campaign has only been actively soliciting donations for less than three months: Trump signed his first email solicitation for donors on June 21.

    The title says it all. Clearly, money given to PACs stays with the PAC, but what about money donated to Hillary's campaign? I think she can keep it if she quits, but could she give it to the new nominee? I can easily foresee months of bickering and indecision while major donors feel fleeced and close their checkbooks.

    Goldman thrives on complexity and backroom dealing Goldman Sachs, the international investment bank that is under more or less continuous government investigation, has forbidden senior employees from giving money to the Trump-Pence campaign. But these wizards of Wall Street drew the new rule up in such a way that they can claim they are not trying to elect Hillary Clinton president.
