Hillary Clinton Says Barack Obama Perpetrated “Systematic Voter Suppression, Intimidation and Harassment”

November 2, 2008

Even though Hillary Clinton is now campaigning for Barack Obama–perhaps due to pressure from party leaders, or because she wants Obama to help retire her campaign debt–all of her supporters need to know that she accused Obama–that’s Obama, not ACORN–of voter suppression, intimidation, and harassment during the Nevada caucuses. The bottom line is that Barack Obama stole the Democratic nomination, and he is not even the party’s legitimate nominee.

    There is no place in the American electoral process for the types of voter suppression, intimidation and harassment systematically engaged in by the Obama campaign, its allies and supporters.
    Sincerely, Lyn Utrecht
    Counsel Hillary Clinton for President

Here is the letter from campaign counsel Lyn Utrecht that accuses the Obama campaign of voter suppression, intimidation, and harassment during the Nevada caucuses. This letter is online as of November 2 2008 (backup here). An optical character recognition transcript appears below. (more…)

Do Obama’s Recent Fundraising Letters Violate Federal Anti-Gambling Laws?

November 2, 2008

Do any attorneys want to weigh in on this question?
The Obama campaign has already been warned by Minnesota law enforcement officials against running “Backstage with Barack” and “Dinner with Barack” lotteries in Minnesota and possibly Colorado. Minnesota’s Department of Public Safety counseled Obama for America to provide a means of entering to win a chance to meet Barack Obama without making a donation, which would remove the “payment of consideration” element that makes the scheme an illegal lottery. The Obama campaign agreed to do so, but it apparently broke this promise to Minnesota’s law enforcement agencies as of October 31 2008.

We are not attorneys and cannot give legal advice, but Missouri’s definition of illegal gambling is typical of that in most states. Bracketed material relates these definitions to Friday’s E-mail from the Obama campaign, “Will You Join Me on Election Night?” We have meanwhile received three similar E-mails since then. Note also that Barack Obama, an attorney, signed his name to the solicitation that appears below.

    Three elements make up an illegal promotion:

    1. Prize is any benefit, cash or property awarded to a winner. [“If you’re selected, you can bring a guest, and we’ll fly you in and put you up in a hotel for the night. You’ll go backstage at the big event and — no matter what happens — you’ll have a front row seat to history as we celebrate the supporters who got us over the finish line.”]
    2. Chance means the winner is chosen by “luck” with little or no skill or ability involved. [“We’re saving some of the best seats in the house for 5 people who make their first donation to the campaign before Sunday at midnight. If you’re selected…”]
    3. Consideration is the exchange of something of value for the opportunity to participate in the game. [“Any donation counts — whatever you can afford. Show your support at this crucial time with a donation of $5 or more, and you could join me on Election Night”]

In addition, Federal law prohibits illegal gambling. (more…)

Did Barack Obama Just Break the Law? Fundraising Lottery Could be Illegal.

November 1, 2008

Unauthorized lotteries are illegal in most jurisdictions, and it is illegal to promote them through the U.S. Mail.

The Obama campaign has already been warned by law enforcement officials against running “Backstage with Barack” and “Dinner with Barack” lotteries in Minnesota and possibly Colorado. Minnesota’s Department of Public Safety counseled Obama for America to provide a means of entering to win a chance to meet Barack Obama without making a donation, which would remove the “payment of consideration” element that makes the scheme an illegal lottery. The Obama campaign agreed to do so, but it broke this promise to Minnesota’s law enforcement agencies as of October 31 2008.

We are not attorneys and cannot give legal advice, but Missouri’s definition of illegal gambling is typical of that in most states. Bracketed material relates these definitions to the latest E-mail from the Obama campaign, “Will You Join Me on Election Night?” Note also that Barack Obama, an attorney, signed his name to the solicitation that appears below.

    Three elements make up an illegal promotion:

    1. Prize is any benefit, cash or property awarded to a winner. [“If you’re selected, you can bring a guest, and we’ll fly you in and put you up in a hotel for the night. You’ll go backstage at the big event and — no matter what happens — you’ll have a front row seat to history as we celebrate the supporters who got us over the finish line.”]

    3. Consideration is the exchange of something of value for the opportunity to participate in the game. [“Any donation counts — whatever you can afford. Show your support at this crucial time with a donation of $5 or more, and you could join me on Election Night”]


In addition, if the same solicitation was sent by U.S. Mail, it might be a violation of Federal law. (more…)

BREAKING: Obama Runs Another Online Lottery After Being Warned by Law Enforcement

October 31, 2008

Law enforcement warned the Obama campaign against running lotteries, but Obama is doing it again anyway. We encourage our readers to report this Web page to their states’ gambling law enforcement agencies. (Google cache of the Web page touting the lottery)
Obama camp’s illegal lottery modified: Campaign’s promotion strayed into definition of banned gambling reports,

    Democrat Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has moved quickly to fix a promotion that strayed into the area of illegal gambling after WND broke the story on the activity.

    The campaign was offering a chance to be picked for a trip to the Democratic National Convention for a contribution of at least $5. However, as a gambling analyst for Colorado-based Focus on the Family told WND, that not only probably violated state laws banning gambling, it also probably violated federal bans.

    Doug Forsman, a special agent with Minnesota’s Department of Public Safety, had confirmed the illegality of the promotion.

    He gave the campaign two options, the newspaper said, to void the contest where such bans exist or to change the rules to allow people to participate without gambling any of their money.

    Forsman confirmed Kendall Burman, staff counsel at Obama’s Chicago headquarters, informed him the “donation,” which had been a requirement earlier, would be made optional.

Today, October 31, the Obama campaign broke its promise to Minnesota’s Department of Public Safety. (more…)

Obama Campaign Site: Israel is Committing Genocide of Palestinians

October 31, 2008

Blood libel hosted at Barack Obama’s official site is consistent with Obama’s alleged genocide accusation
As reported at Israel Insider and Townhall.com,

    Saw a clip from the tape. Reason we can’t release it is because statements Obama said to rile audience up during toast. He congratulates Khalidi for his work saying “Israel has no God-given right to occupy Palestine” plus there’s been “genocide against the Palestinian people by Israelis.

This statement by Barack Obama is 100 percent consistent with the anti-Israel blood libels that he welcomes at My.Barackobama.com, over which his campaign staff exercises editorial control. “Obama Foreign Policy Dream Ticket: Edwards and Samantha Power” has been online since February 17th. Here is the Google cache in case it goes under the bus between now and November 4. (more…)

Obama Misused Church Resources to Support his Campaign

October 31, 2008

Obama’s misuse of tax exempt resources prompted IRS investigation of the United Church of Christ
The United Church of Christ’s Web site reports that Barack Obama’s delivery of a campaign speech at its annual synod–a blatant misuse of the church’s tax exempt resources–prompted the Internal Revenue Service to investigate the church. That is, Barack Hussein Obama’s knowing, deliberate, premeditated, and willful misuse of his church’s resources to support his Presidential campaign put the church’s tax exemption at risk.

    Obama’s General Synod speech prompts IRS to investigate UCC’s tax-exempt status

    February 26, 2008

    The Internal Revenue Service has notified the United Church of Christ’s national offices in Cleveland, Ohio, that the IRS has opened an investigation into U.S. Sen. Barack Obama’s address at the UCC’s 2007 General Synod as the church engaging in “political activities.”

Iranian Nuclear Scientist Claims Iran Has Tested a Nuclear Weapon

October 30, 2008

Vote as if your life and your liberty depend on it, because they do.

    Iranian Nuke Scientist: Weekend Quake was a Nuclear Test

    by Hillel Fendel
    (IsraelNN.com) A weekend 5.0 Richter earthquake in Iran was actually a nuclear bomb test, says an Iranian nuclear scientist claiming to be working on the project.

Meanwhile, Secretary of Defense Gates has warned that the American nuclear arsenal is deteriorating with age. Barack Hussein Obama has vowed not to authorize research on new nuclear weapons like the Reliable Replacement Warhead (RRW), which is both more reliable and less vulnerable to misuse than the existing ones. This “Presidential candidate’s” own proclaimed policies–not what the Republicans say about him, but what he says about himself–are guaranteed (his own running mate Joe Biden says so) to put the lives of 300 million Americans at risk. Please vote as if your life and your liberty depend on it, because they do.

Obama and Biden are Jive Turkeys

October 30, 2008

Jive Turkey is among the voters whom ACORN registered to vote, presumably for Barack Obama. We found the following definition for “jive turkey.”

    Someone who is unreliable, makes empty promises, or who is full of bluster, or a moron in other words.

It is customary to use a word or phrase in context to help explain it, and we shall now do so.

  • “Only a jive turkey would promise to increase government spending while promising to cut taxes for 95% of all Americans.”
  • “Only a jive turkey would promise to create five million ‘green’ jobs that private enterprise has yet to justify.”
  • “Joe Biden told voters in coal producing states that he supports clean coal, and he told an anti-coal supporter at a rally that he opposed all new coal power plants. This makes him a jive turkey.”

It’s Not Racism to Oppose Obama

October 29, 2008

Here’s how to explain in one sentence why it is not racist to oppose and even despise Barack Obama. To paraphrase Martin Luther King, “My problem is not with the color of Barack Obama’s skin, but with the content of his character.”

Or, in less delicate terms, “My problem with a stinking sack of fertilizer is not with the sack’s color, but with its contents.” Imagine a sack (white, black, or in between) around which a huge swarm of flies is buzzing eagerly. You probably don’t need to stick your nose in the sack, much less open it, to deduce that you want nothing to do with its contents. Here are but a few specimens of the “flies” that swarm around Barack Obama, often with his encouragement:

  • Bill Ayers, self-admitted domestic terrorist (“Guilty as hell, free as a bird”) and Bernadine Dohrn
  • Louis Farrakhan (Obama refused to “reject” his endorsement until Hillary Clinton and Tim Russert backed him into a corner)
  • Rahid Khalidi, advisor to the Palestine Liberation Organization
  • Michael “There were a whole lot of white people crying” Pfleger
  • Edward Said (virulent anti-Israel professor at Columbia)
  • Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (Google on “Freddy’s Fashion Mart”)
  • The Trinity United Church of Christ, which applauded “There were a whole lot of white people crying.”
  • Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright

Who Will Die in Barack Obama’s Holocaust?

October 28, 2008

Will Senator Biden’s projected “international crisis” kill mere millions, or hundreds of millions?

    Mark my words. It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he’s gonna have to make some really tough — I don’t know what the decision’s gonna be, but I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it’s gonna happen. —Senator Joseph Biden

Barack Obama’s own running mate has guaranteed that some dictator is going to “test” Barack Obama with an international crisis similar to the Cuban Missile Crisis: an international incident that brought the United States and Soviet Union to the brink of a thermonuclear holocaust. This is the international incident that “tested” John F. Kennedy, and Senator Biden has guaranteed us a similar “test” of Barack Hussein Obama. (more…)
