“Leading from behind, fundraising in your face”
“Leading from behind, fundraising in your face”
For a man who claims he is not a communist, he sure as hell talks like one.
(Politico) –BELLEVUE, Wash. — People don’t tend to vote on foreign policy. But reflecting on the crises in Ukraine, Gaza, Syria and Iraq that followed him as he headed to the West Coast for a fundraising swing, President Barack Obama acknowledged that they’re adding to an anxiety that’s feeding cynicism that could hurt his party in the midterms.
“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world, the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people,” Obama said Tuesday, speaking at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser [$25,000 minimum to attend] at an Italianate mansion across Lake Washington from the downtown skyline. [...]
In a perfect world, every American who voted the POS POTUS into office would be so ashamed and racked by guilt that they would literally go insane.

“Off-the-record here—Wanted to ask you if you could help us get folks organized to come to a fundraiser that we’re doing for Organizing for America for Obama [re-election] campaign”
As Director of the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach, David Simas, in defiance of a congressional subpoena, failed to appear today to testify before a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on taxpayer-funded political campaign activity by government officials, the Committee released an audio recording of then-United States Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis illegally soliciting funds for President Obama’s re-election campaign in violation of the Hatch Act, which prohibits political activity on official time.
In his opening statement, Chairman Issa played a recording of a message left on the phone of a Labor Department subordinate pressuring the employee to contribute to President Obama’s re-election campaign. The recording subsequently became the subject of a complaint made to the Office of Special Counsel. Then-Labor Secretary Solis says:
“Hi—this is Hilda Solis calling, um, just calling you off-the-record here—Wanted to ask you if you could, um, help us get folks organized to come to a fundraiser that we’re doing for Organizing for America for Obama campaign on Friday at La Fonda at 6 p.m. Steven Smith, an attorney, and his staff are helping us [inaudible]. There are a lot of folks that we know that are coming but wanted to ask you if you might help contribute or get other folks to help out. I would encourage you to call this number, [inaudible]–that’s his assistant– at [phone number] and you can call [the attorney] yourself who’s a good friend, an attorney, good friend of mine, at [phone number]. And it’s for a Friday event at La Fonda [inaudible] we’re just trying to raise money to show that we have support here in [inaudible].”
Well played Chairman Issa, well played.

Sadly enough as the 1st female double amputee from the Afghan war and the lone survivor of the Humvee that was hit by an IED back in 2006 wounded veteran Cpl. Sue Downes is no stranger to tragedy but this latest blow is being softened by caring individuals who have stepped up to help her and her children in their time of need.
TAZEWELL (WATE) – A Valentine’s Day fire destroyed the home of a wounded veteran and now the community is stepping in to help her rebuild.
The flames broke out at Cpl. Sue Downes’ home in Tazewell late Friday evening.
“That’s my life up there, that’s 15 years go my life in that home, my kids’ memories, their everything, our everything,” said the 33 year-old veteran.
Cpl. Downes lost both her legs in Afghanistan in 2006 and now she and her family have lost almost everything.
When she came home to see her home in flames Friday night, her thoughts quickly turned to her four legged family.
“Just let me see my dogs, just let me see my dogs are out,” she recalled pleading to firefighters.
Her retired service dog Lila survived, along with another pup Max survived, but her daughter’s Chihuahua perished in the fire.
Now the community is coming together to help her find a new home, a new home that would be better suited for her needs.
“Of course having a home that’s more accessible would be amazing,:” said Cpl. Downes.
The Bronze Star and Purple Heart recipient lost both her legs below the knee the Humvee she was riding in was struck by an IED. She was the nation’s first female double leg amputee.
The nation supported her then and today they’re showing their support once more.
In just 48 hours people have donated more than $10,000 dollars to the fundraising page.
“It’s hard to keep saying thank you, that’s all I know what to say is thank you thank you, I’m so grateful,” she said. [...]
Obama back in San Francisco by unpopular demand
(Washington Examiner) –The Democratic National Committee is reducing ticket prices for a high-dollar fundraiser in San Francisco next week that features President Obama, according to an email sent to donors Monday.
Obama is set to appear at a luncheon at the SFJAZZ Center on Nov. 25 to benefit the DNC, but whether it’s a sign of donor fatigue or a general lack of interest, tickets have not been selling as expected.
“An exciting new update I would love to mention is that we have reduced the price for the general admission luncheon tickets to $500/person,” Shefali Razdan Duggal, a member of the DNC’s national finance committee, wrote in the email. “In addition, all current $1000 ticket holders will be upgraded to VIP (this includes premium seating near the stage and Presidential rope line access).”
Originally, entry-level tickets for the event started at $1,000, so the DNC is offering what amounts to a 50 percent discount.

Union Thugs Demolish Lansing,Michigan Hot Dog Vendor Clint Tarver’s Equipment [Photo] Update: “N*gger, Uncle Tom” –Slurs Confirmed
Early today[December 11, 2012], Clint Tarver, known as “The Hot Dog Guy” here in Lansing had his business attacked and destroyed by out of line and out of control protesters near the Capitol.
Everyone who has passed the hot dog cart knows what a kind and caring individual Clint is. He never fails to bestow a smile or friendly greeting. In no way [did] he provoke this attack, nor any of the behavior displayed toward him.
Beyond the Cart: The Story of Clint Tarver:
Regardless of your position on current legislation, rebuilding Clint’s Hot Dogs is something we can all support. Please give what you can to get this deserving businessman back out there!
If you would like to help Clint get back on his feet ==>DONATE HERE
Update: Racist, violent, destructive monsters.
Update 2: The plot thickens!
The woman (Lorilea Susanne) who set up the fundraising page for Clint has spoken to his wife. Apparently Clint was hired to provide catering for the Americans For Prosperity tent which was also destroyed by union thugs.
*UPDATE* 11:40am – I have spoken with Linda Lee, Clint’s wife. She says he is absolutely overwhelmed with our support, even more so than by the events of yesterday. I would like to clarify the events, however. Clint hired as a caterer for the AFP tent which was torn down. He was much more concerned about the others, andÂ particularlyÂ helped to get the women out of the tent. It was when he returned to gather his equipment that the taunts and racial slurs began. He says the working people did not respect the working man. He was not there to beÂ political; he was just there to serve. This is the Clint we know and love. Please, let’s respect him and leave our political opinions out of this. This is about our support for Clint.
Romneyâ€™s Saturday started off well. He was the star of the Ingham County Lincoln Day breakfast, an eggs-and-coffee-and-county-commissioner-placards affair in the dining room of a Lansing, Mich., country club.
Before he spoke, Republicans heard â€œThe Star-Spangled Bannerâ€ sung by the Old School Fellas, a zoot-suited amateur doo-wop group. â€œMittâ€™s a good, Christian man like I am,â€ explained Clinton Tarver, wearing the reddest of the zoot suits.
Update 4: AFP Michigan organizer Annie Patnaude discusses the attack. She was onsite and witnessed the incident.
Update 7:Â Lee Stranahan’s in person interview with Clint The Hot Dog Guy. Topic:Â The union mob racist attack and the the attack on the AFP tent in Lansing. At first Clint was caught in the crossfire then the vicious union mob turned their racist anger towards him. He was working for the enemy –Americans For Prosperity. Thus deserving of their wrath.
Good Lord. Of course, they have no sense of shame, but are they also completely lacking a sense of irony? I mean, the Left has spent nearly four years building their â€œTea Party is racistâ€ meme, and the AFL-CIO brutes â€” who were nearly all white, as Stranahan reports and video verifies â€” decide theyâ€™ll just waste all that liberal media propaganda in order to terrorize a guy whose only â€œcrimeâ€ is serving hot dogs?

Eat our dust Obama.
(CNN) â€“ The Republican National Committee said Friday it raised $37.7 million in July, making last month the best July in the party committee’s history.
At the end of July, the RNC said it had $88.7 million cash on hand. They said July’s numbers brought their yearly total to $158 million.
Mitt Romney, along with the RNC and several state parties, raised $101.3 million in July, and ended the month with $185.9 million cash on hand. That was the third straight month the Republican effort outraised President Barack Obama and the Democrats, who brought in $75 million in July.
Obama was a fundraising heavy hitter in 2008, as you can see by this chart. He raised a record-breaking $745 million throughout his presidential campaign.
But this time ’round, Obama’s smarmy charm alone is not enough to compete. He is used goods. Buyers remorse is in the air.
BTW Obama has brazenly lied about being “outspent” in 2008.
His back is up against the wall, and he knows it.
JWF received this email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
I just got this disturbing report: Yesterdayâ€™s Romney-Ryan rally in North Carolina pulled in an overflow crowd of 15,000 people.
Thereâ€™s no spinning that number. Itâ€™s a LOT of people, and the Republican base in energized.
And thatâ€™s not all. Since the VP announcement, Romneyâ€™s campaign has brought in over 70,000 donations from his Tea Party base.
Weâ€™ve got to step up our game and mobilize our supporters â€” starting right now.
Listen to what one Republican supporter said about Paul Ryan: â€œI love himâ€¦Heâ€™s going to excite the Tea Party and get them on boardâ€¦â€
We canâ€™t let the Republicans claim the momentum. Donate $3 or whatever you can:
