  • Exclusive: Data shows that half of 2019 donations to ActBlue came from untraceable 'unemployed' donors

    09/12/2020 11:19:20 AM PDT · by CheshireTheCat · 26 replies ^ | September 12, 2020 | Hollie McKay
    Less than two months ahead of the presidential election – with concerns of foreign interference again at the forefront – a conservative political group is raising "serious concerns" about millions of donations reported by a major Democratic fundraising platform. A preliminary computer analysis by the Take Back Action Fund, obtained exclusively by Fox News, has found that nearly half of all 2019 donations to ActBlue were made by people claiming to be unemployed. Action Fund President John Pudner questioned the veracity of those donations and called it a loophole that must be closed for the sake of election integrity. "After...

    Led into a federal magistrate’s courtroom in Houston wearing handcuffs Friday, 164th District Judge Alexandra Smoots-Thomas pleaded not guilty to seven counts of wire fraud in a case that alleges she embezzled more than $26,000 in campaign contributions and used them for personal expenses... “This is a political prosecution,” said the judge’s attorney, Kent Schaffer, a partner at Schaffer Carter & Associates in Houston. It happened because Smoots-Thomas is an African American and a Democrat, Schaffer claimed, adding that he thinks she will beat the charges... “Beginning in approximately early 2013 and continuing through at least January 2018, Smoots-Thomas engaged...

    Bowie, MD Patch ^ | October 8, 2019 | Kristin Danley-Greiner
    PRINCE GEORGE'S COUNTY, MD — Maryland state lawmaker Tawanna Gaines, a Democrat from Prince George's County, has abruptly resigned after being suspected of using money she raised for her reelection campaign for personal use. She submitted her resignation to House Speaker Adrienne Jones on Friday, Oct. 4. She now faces a federal wire fraud charge. Gaines, 67, has served in the Maryland House of Delegates since 2001 and, according to the AP, defrauded her campaign and its contributors of more than $22,000 from at least January 2015 through April 2018. "After much thought and consideration, I have decided to submit...

    A soon to be released report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute shows that President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has increasingly collected more electronic donations from non-existent ZIP codes throughout the 2012 campaign cycle. From February through June this year the GAI findings reported that the Obama campaign collected $175,816.26 in electronic donations from non-existent ZIP codes. One month later, the campaign raised $411,369.55 through such donations and $197,464.59 in August. By the end of September, the Obama campaign raked in $2,199,204.38 – thanks to donations from non-existent ZIP codes. The upcoming GAI report suggests the Obama campaign is allowing...

    The Obama re-election campaign has accepted at least one foreign donation in violation of the law — and does nothing to check on the provenance of millions of dollars in other contributions, a watchdog group alleges. Chris Walker, a British citizen who lives outside London, told The Post he was able to make two $5 donations to President Obama’s campaign this month through its Web site while a similar attempt to give Mitt Romney cash was rejected. It is illegal to knowingly solicit or accept money from foreign citizens. Walker said he used his actual street address in England but...

    EXPLOSIVE REPORT: OBAMA CAMPAIGN WEBSITE LACKS IMPORTANT TOOL TO PREVENT ILLEGAL DONATIONS October 8, 2012 by Mytheos Holt This past Thursday, TheBlaze teased a potential scandal surrounding President Obama’s donors. Now, we might know what that scandal is. According to a report by the conservative nonprofit Government Accountability Institute (GAI), and an explosive series of stories on and the Daily Caller, the Obama campaign website appears to be built with an uncharacteristic lack of security where foreign donations are concerned. Despite donations from foreign sources being illegal under Federal law, all campaigns, whether at the congressional level or...

  • Obama for America Taking Money from Bank Accounts?

    I just caught this on the website for our local radio station in Clinton, Missouri. We wanted to get the word out for everyone to check their bank accounts. I was shocked yesterday to see in our bank statement that $950 was taken from our Clinton Youth Baseball bank account and given to Obama for America. is somehow connected because they withdrew money and redeposited it the same day. We have filed a complaint with the Missouri Attorney General but are concerned for others as some may not check their account regularly. If it can happen to our Youth...

    However, this time it's getting interesting. John E. has this about the weak security that Obama uses to match donor information from redirects which are mostly foreign, and Doug Ross now sees evidence in the websites html that Obama's people are intentionally allowing proxy IP's to be used by their donors. That last bit? That's more than a little fishy.

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | September 11, 2012 | Andrew Evans
    A top Obama campaign bundler living in Shanghai, China, is an international businessman with ties to the Cayman Islands. Robert W. Roche has lived in China and Japan for the past 27 years, although he maintains a residence in Chicago. He has used his extensive connections to raise money for the Obama campaign, and has pledged to raise $500,000 for the Obama campaign this year, an upgrade from the $100,000-200,000 he agreed to raise four years ago. He donated the maximum $50,000 allowable to Obama’s inauguration fund in 2009. Roche’s wife, Ritsuko Hattori-Roche, along with Roche’s business partner Don Yang,...

    Most Republicans recall the Doodad Pro controversy from almost exactly four years ago, where Team Obama campaign websites turned off credit card security checks that allowed fraudulent and foreign donations to flow into the campaign. Could that be happening again? According to a new independent report from the Government Accountability Institute and reported by Breitbart, not only is it actually happening again — it’s actually gotten worse. A bundler for Barack Obama has set up a shady website operation to collect donations to the campaign, but it’s based in Shanghai, and the bundler has ties to the Chinese government: In...

    -- Obama Campaign Lacks the Industry-Standard Level Of Credit Card Security For Donations, But Uses It For Merchandise Purchases: To purchase Obama campaign merchandise, the campaign requires buyers to enter their credit card CVV security code, but does not require the credit card security code to be entered when making an online campaign donation. By GAI's estimates, the Obama campaign's failure to utilize industry-standard protections potentially costs the campaign millions in extra processing fees.

    The Government Accountability Institute released a blockbuster study today on the issue of foreign donations in American politics, and in particular, the Obama campaign. The study determined three key findings: The absence of the industry-standard CVV and unknown use of AVS anti-fraud security for online credit card donations. The presence of a branded, major third-party owned website ( redirects its 68% foreign traffic to a campaign donation page. Active foreign solicition using indiscriminate email solicitations and exposure to social media. The branded site,, was created in Shanghai, China, by an Obama bundler, but its present registration information is hidden....

    The Departments of Health and Human Services and Education are now acting as outlets for the Obama re-election campaign. In a press announcement released yesterday, HHS stated that HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan “are reaching out to campus leaders to remind graduating high school, college and university seniors about their new health insurance options under the Affordable Care Act – the health care law.” This is obvious propagandizing; under the old health care law, most insurance programs allowed dependent care coverage for people under the age of 21. So why would Sebelius and company be...

    Ever since the Democrats passed ObamaCare "so we could find out what's in it," Americans have overwhelmingly said they didn't like the new law.  Now, the Obama Administration is spending $20 million of taxpayer money on a new public relations campaign to try to sell us, yet again, on this unprecedented intrusion into our lives by legislation that 72% of Americans believe violates the Constitution.The new public relations campaign "will inform the American people about the many preventative benefits" of ObamaCare according to the White House spin machine.   Porter-Novelli, one of the planet's glitziest consumer marketing firms, has been awarded the...

    Despite his populist anti-free market rhetoric and record, the President has a love affair and relationship with a corporate giant. The company is Google and the incestuous relationship pays dividends to both parties but leaves taxpayers out as the third wheel. Money magazine in an article entitled "Obama & Google (A Love Story)" described the love affair as "[F]rom his denunciations of Wall Street greed to his critiques of the auto manufacturers, Obama and his team have done little to disguise their mistrust of big business -- except when it comes to one very large, very influential technology company."...

    A campaign fundraiser for Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has been charged with illegally funneling $26,000 in contributions to the mayor and former City Councilman Jack Weiss, according to a five-count grand jury indictment unsealed Friday. Prosecutors with the LA County district attorney's office contend that Alexander Hugh, worked with Annette Lee, to have employees at Lee's escrow company give donations of $1,000 or more to the campaigns of Villaraigosa and Weiss. Hugh reimbursed the employees with cash, an illegal practice known as campaign money laundering. Campaign fundraising violations only occasionally result in criminal prosecutions. The most recent concluded in...

    For those who haven't heard, there are many instances of fake Tea-Party candidates on ballots around the country, the intent being to split the conservative vote giving victory to the democrat. In Florida's 8th congressional district this fake Tea-Party candidate is Peg Dunmire. There have been previous stories drawing the direct connection between Alan Grayson and Dunmires through her campaign manager Doug Getslo, who by the way has been sentenced to serve 60 day in jail starting Nov 3 for previous campaign indiscretions. Obviously if the Dunmire scheme succeeds the election will be handed to Alan Grayson. Follow the link,...

    Chalk it up to things you haven't seen on CBS or any of the dino media. Vice President and famous Phillies fan Joe Biden, that union-lovin' regular guy of the people, has been fined by the Federal Election Commission for accepting donations above the legal limit for his failed 2008 presidential run. These illegal donations included a deeply discounted flight on a private jet owned by Clinton Group , a New York hedge fund that manages $1.1 billion for domestic and offshore clients and $5 billion collateralized debt obligations, which includes things like, well, mortgage-backed securities.
