Obama’s ‘Organizing For Action’ Campaign Siphons Donations Away From Democrat Party Leading Up To 2014 Election

OBAMA-2012-AP

As the Democrats prepare to try to take back the House in 2014, they are beginning to realize that Obama’s permanent campaign arm, “Organizing For Action,” isn’t necessarily in their camp.   They are competing with the Democrat party for fundraising dollars, and using the money to prop up the Cult of Obama, not the Democrat party.

Anyone who has been paying attention to the Obamessiah’s narcissistic behavior for the past four years could have seen this coming a mile away.   Sadly, it appears the suckers at the DNC are only just realizing that their idol’s just not that into them.

Anita Kumar reports at McClatchy:

President Barack Obama’s decision to launch his own political organization has some Democrats wondering: Is he just in it for himself?

Obama’s new group, Organizing for Action, will focus on his policy agenda – not on electing Democratic candidates – by raising unlimited amounts of cash and accessing the president’s secret list of 20 million supporters, volunteers and donors.

The operation won’t share money, resources or the priceless Obama email list with the Democratic National Committee or campaign committees that help elect members of Congress, governors and legislators. And it has no plans to coordinate efforts, leading some Democrats to worry that it will take money and manpower away from the party as it heads into the 2014 elections for control of Congress.

“There’s only so much money to go around in Democratic circles. There’s a limited pool of resources,” said Gilda Cobb Hunter, a South Carolina legislator and a member of the Democratic National Committee. “Why can’t we strengthen one entity?”

[...]  Days before his second term began, Obama announced that his campaign would morph into a nonprofit, tax-exempt group to rally support across the country for his agenda. “Organizing for Action will be an unparalleled force in American politics,” he told supporters.

Other presidents have created or championed organizations outside the major national parties. Bill Clinton, for example, embraced the Democratic Leadership Council, an organization that pushed a moderate agenda.

But that functioned more as a think tank. And Obama is the first to form a group that will raise millions of dollars as it seeks to perpetuate a year-round campaign for him.

The decision to create Organizing for Action separate from the DNC, where a similar group was housed after the 2008 election, has prompted some Democrats to accuse Obama of focusing more on his legacy and less on his party.

What does Obama have to gain from withholding the e-mail list, siphoning away donations, and otherwise threatening to weaken the DNC’s 2014 campaign efforts?   Is he trying to force them to come crawling to him to stay in power?

White House Declares Easter Sunday ‘Cesar Chavez Day’

423x353xobama-cesar-chavez.jpg.pagespeed.ic.5HIE_ma_v2

Unbelievable! Obama declared Easter Sunday 2013 to be “Cesar Chavez Day,” in honor of a fellow Alinsky disciple and socialist activist.

Celia Bigelow reports at Breitbart:

President Obama is the only president to name a day after Chavez. So who exactly is Cesar Chavez and what is his “enduring legacy”?

Cesar Chavez became a protege of Saul Alinsky in the early 1950s when he was hired as a staff member to organize Mexican-American voter registration drives for Community Services Organization–Alinsky’s organization. Chavez learned first hand from Alinsky, theself-proclaimed “professional radical,” about the tactics of revolution and community organizing.

In 1962, Chavez left CSO to cultivate his own farm workers’ union. He spent years organizing farm workers across the state of California to engage in strikes against grape growers that lasted years at a time. In 1970, after nearly three years of grape strikes, 26 California Grape Growers caved into Chavez and signed three-year contracts with UFW.

Chavez was out of luck three years later when the Teamsters Union outbid Chavez and the UFW with lower costs and less hassle. Chavez organized a second grape strike despite the circumstances (significantly depleted staff and contract supply).

While Chavez previously managed to maintain a violence-free atmosphere (the most extreme tactic being a hunger strike), a spree of violence erupted between the UFW and the Teamsters that resulted in numerous clashes and the death of two UFW members.

Radicalism, violence, scare tactics, and bullying–that’s quite a legacy.

Obama’s Pastor Uses Easter Service To Blast ‘Religious Right’ As Racists, Sexists

Obama-church-620x449-550x398

Obama deliberately chooses these kinds of radical, extremist religious leaders to guide his family and his faith.   That tells you a lot about how radical his core beliefs really are.   Obama doesn’t hide the fact that he’s a follower of the “Social Gospel,” which teaches collective salvation through good (government) works, not individual salvation by grace.

Madeleine Morgenstern reports at The Blaze:

The pastor at the Washington, D.C. church where the Obama family celebrated Easter on Sunday said members of the religious right want blacks “in the back of the bus,” women “back in the kitchen” and immigrants “back on their side of the border.”

“It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back…for blacks to be back in the back of the bus…for women to be back in the kitchen…for immigrants to be back on their side of the border,” Rev. Dr. Luis Leon said in his sermon, according to the White House press pool report.

Reuters reporter Jeff Mason tweeted that Leon also said the religious right wants gays in the closet.

What a classy, uplifting sermon for Resurrection Sunday.

This isn’t the first time his nut-job pastor has said something like this, either. Where does he find these crazies? I’ve grown up in different church across the denominational spectrum all my life, and NOT ONCE have I ever a pastor give sermon that specifically bashed political opponents.

Obama’s White House Is Open To The Rich, But Not The Poor

526856_10151577933947650_1050803529_n

Sorry, peasants.  If you’re just an average citizen wanting a tour of the “People’s House” for your duly elected public servants, you’re out of luck.

If you’re a big donor to Obama’s revamped campaign arm, “Organizing For Action,” however, we’ll be happy to grant you a front row seat to the King Obama.

Mark McKinnon writes at The Telegraph:

Once, only nobles were granted an audience with the King.

In America, we’ve prided ourselves on abandoning those privileges of class some 237 years ago, following that little uprising in the 13 colonies.

And we again congratulated ourselves at 12:01 pm Eastern Time on January 20, 2009, just moments after Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th president of the United States and as he committed to making his administration the most transparent and open in history.

But more than four years later it is time to ask questions. The most transparent administration ever? The most transparently political, yes. The most open government? If you have the money to buy access, yes.

Since last weekend, Mr and Mrs Regular Citizen have been denied the access people used to be granted to tour the White House, purportedly because of the clampdown on federal spending since the “sequester” that imposed cuts across the board.

These tours, most recently guided by volunteers though monitored by paid Secret Service staff, have been an American tradition since John and Abigail Adams, the first White House residents, personally hosted receptions for the public.

And their cancellation is an austerity measure that saves a pittance, while more frivolous taxpayer funding for items like the White House dog walker continues.

Meanwhile, noble Americans can buy time with the president for a suggested donation of $500,000 to his new campaign group, Organising for Action.

Yes, the announcement offering access to the president for cold, hard cash was made openly and with total transparency. But it was also made without shame.

It’s the third version of Obama’s original monster campaign machine, Obama for America, which then morphed into a re-election campaign machine, Organising for America, on the third day of his first term.

It has now re-launched again as Organising for Action (OFA) – a non-profit, tax-exempt group headed by his former campaign advisers. Apparently no longer “for America”, the group might just as well be called Organising for Obama’s Agenda.

Its mission: to support the president in his attempt to achieve enactment of gun control, environmental policies and immigration reform.

DHS Invests In Armored Tanks, Surveillance Drones That Can Detect Armed Citizens

predator1_610x346-550x311

Don’t worry, little citizen.  It’s not like they’re planning on actually using them or anything…right?

CNET reports (via Weasel Zippers):

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has customized its Predator drones, originally built for overseas military operations, to carry out at-home surveillance tasks that have civil libertarians worried: identifying civilians carrying guns and tracking their cell phones, government documents show.

The documents provide more details about the surveillance capabilities of the department’s unmanned Predator B drones, which are primarily used to patrol the United States’ northern and southern borders but have been pressed into service on behalf of a growing number of law enforcement agencies including the FBI, the Secret Service, the Texas Rangers, and local police.

Homeland Security’s specifications for its drones, built by San Diego-based General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, say they “shall be capable of identifying a standing human being at night as likely armed or not,” meaning carrying a shotgun or rifle. They also specify “signals interception” technology that can capture communications in the frequency ranges used by mobile phones, and “direction finding” technology that can identify the locations of mobile devices or two-way radios.

In addition to their fancy modified drones and billions of rounds of ammunition, DHS is investing in armored tanks – for domestic use:

The sequestration question du jour is why the Department of Homeland Security, busy releasing hundreds, if not thousands, of deportable and detained illegal aliens due to budget constraints, is buying several thousand Mine Resistant Armored Protection (MRAP) vehicles?

And just who are they intended to be used against?

[...]   The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these MRAP vehicles for service on the streets of the U.S. They were formerly used for counterinsurgency in Iraq.

These vehicles are specifically designed to resist mines and ambush attacks. They use bulletproof windows and are designed to withstand small-arms fire, including smaller-caliber rifles such as a .223 Remington. Does DHS expect a counterinsurgency here?

An “expert” at West Point recently published a study for the Combating Terrorist Center which warns cadets about the dangers of the “violent far right,” such as Christians, pro-lifers, and advocates for limited government.

Community-Organizer-In-Chief’s ‘Organizing For Action’ Caught Selling Access To White House

OFA1

Pay to play.  It’s the Chicago way!

From the Washington Examiner:

[H]ere is how the pitch goes: Obama can not enact his second-term agenda without significant help from outside groups. Those outside groups can channel resources through Obama’s old presidential re-election apparatus, which has now been rechristened “Organizing for America,” an IRS 501(c)4 tax-exempt “social welfare” organization.

The sole purpose of OFA will be to advance Obama’s policy agenda, and to that end, Obama will meet personally with OFA’s national advisory board in the White House at least four times a year. And, here is the money part: You too can become a member of the national advisory board for the bargain basement price of just $500,000. OFA hopes to become “a powerhouse national advocacy network” by selling such slots to wealthy donors and raising $50,000,000 this year.

If that isn’t selling access, then we don’t know what is. And it’s also a clear case of hypocrisy — of Obama doing precisely the thing for which he harshly criticized others, and with which he formed the very core of his political identity as a candidate of “change.”

Pressed to defend Obama’s hypocrisy, White House press secretary jay Carney insisted that OFA is an “independent organization” and that Obama meets with many independent organizations like environmentalists and labor unions all the time.

But none of those organizations exist for the sole stated purpose of, in Carney’s own words, “rallying support for the president’s policy agenda.” None of those organizations used to be Obama’s presidential campaign. And none of those organization can officially speak for the president, as OFA does through the authenticated @BarackObama Twitter account. No one who ponies up $500,000 to OFA is under any illusion that OFA would ever do anything the White House did not want it to.

You know it’s bad when even MSNBC’s Chuck Todd complains that Obama is “ceding the moral high ground” and observes that “this is how a bad system gets worse.”

Ed Morrissey observes at Hot Air:

The only way this should surprise anyone is if they bought the idea that a Chicago Machine politician would ride into Washington to clean up that one-horse town.  What looks bad is the shock,shock that ensues when Obama reveals himself to be every bit a product of that Chicago environment.

Georgia Elementary School Propaganda: ‘Obama Ran So Our Children Could Fly’

21930_143912075772949_255473918_n

This shrine to the Obamessiah was part of one elementary school’s “Black History Month”….or at least, that’s the excuse for exalting Dear Leader as the one who makes our children “fly.”

Kyle Olson writes at Townhall:

TUCKER, Ga. – It’s no secret government schools have put President Obama on a pedestal unlike any other national leader.

Schools have been named after him long before his retirement or death, which is rather unprecedented. Students have been led in organized chants of his honored name. There are lesson plans comparing him to Abraham Lincoln.

But sometimes school employees take the rhetoric a bit too far and wind up in propaganda territory. The latest example comes from DeKalb County, Georgia.

For Black History Month, Livsey Elementary School created a cute display with the lines:

Rosa sat…so Martin could walk.
Martin walked…so Obama could run.
Obama ran…so our children could fly.

[...]   This deifying of Obama is unhealthy for our students because we’re teaching them to look to an individual – or government in general – for life solutions. If anything, today’s kids need to be reprogrammed to remember that they are the masters of their own destinies, and they themselves make the decisions that will ultimately determine the course of their lives.

As President John Adams said, we have “a government of laws, and not of men.” The unhealthy tendency to worship the people that temporarily fill government positions is a distraction for young people who should be focused on their own efforts to find their way in life.

This is the kind of crap you find in banana republics and third-world dictatorships.   In America, we we do NOT revere our elected officials.   We view them with scrutiny as the temporary public servants that they are.

Now more than ever, children need to be taught to hold their elected officials accountable, not worship them!

Exposed: Obama Campaign Targeted Citizen Poll Watchers Trying To Prevent Voter Fraud In Ohio

Obama Supporters Accused Of Voter Fraud Testify In Ohio Hearing

View on YouTube

The surprise here isn’t that there was fraud.  It’s that they actually being investigated at all.   As long as this continues unchecked, with a slap on the wrist for those who get caught, a pat on the back for those who don’t, and accusations of “racist!” against anyone who dares to suggest voter ID, the Republicans will never win another significant election.   Democrats will fix the outcome long before the votes are tallied.

Fox News reports:

“Yes, I voted twice,” Richardson told WCPO-TV. “I, after registering thousands of people, certainly wanted my vote to count, so I voted. I voted at the polls.”

Authorities also are investigating if she voted in the names of four other people, too, for a total of six votes in the 2012 presidential election.

“I’ll fight it for Mr. Obama and for Mr. Obama’s right to sit as president of the United States,” Richardson vowed when asked about the voter fraud investigation that is now under way.

Richardson is one of 19 people suspected of illegal voting by the Hamilton County Board of Elections in the last election.

“I’m outraged, and every voter, regardless of their political affiliation, should be outraged,” said Hamilton County Board of Elections member Alex Triantafilou, who is also chairman of the county Republican Party. “It causes folks to have real doubts about the fabric of our very democratic process, and it’s dangerous. It is disconcerting that someone would be so bold as to admit their conduct in such a fashion … We fully intend to prosecute these cases.”

On election day, there were poll watcher volunteers who were trained to spot this kind of fraud and report it before it got out of hand.

But the Obama campaign, intent on stealing the election, actually made lists of individual citizens to target specifically because they were there to help prevent voter fraud:

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, True the Vote shared emails between Obama staffers discussing targeting specific individuals they believed were associated with True the Vote in Hamilton County, Ohio. Official records obtained by True the Vote indicated that the private citizens on the Obama target list were poll clerks hired by the county–not observers placed by candidates.

The email’s author, current Consumer Financial Protection Bureau employee Scott Pluta, stated with certitude that these people were affiliated with True the Vote locally.

“There are a number of elements to this finding that are concerning,” True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said. “The idea that an incumbent presidential campaign would build target lists on citizens that are specifically trained to detect fraudulent behavior in the polls is truly unnerving. You would think that kind of story would be told in developing nations, not the United States.”

That is downright chilling!

Even more chilling: this same Obama campaign apparatus is back in full operation – just under a different name – for the specific purpose of advancing his radical agenda.

Permanent Campaign: Obama SOTU Launches ‘Organizing for Action’ Nationwide

130207_ofa_reuters_605-550x298

This is why liberals keep successfully advancing their agenda…because they NEVER stop agitating and campaigning.  Unlike conservatives, who go back to living our daily lives until the next election, Leftists keep the pressure on ALL THE TIME.   It’s the Chicago Brown Shirt way.

If we’re going to beat them for the long haul, we can’t afford to rest on our laurels between elections anymore.   We have to stay in the fight year-round.

Joel Pollack reports at Breitbart:

As President Barack Obama delivered the State of the Union address, activists involved in his new non-profit advocacy group, Organizing for Action, gathered in local meetings around the country to watch and cheer him on. The new 501(c)4 organization, which is an offshoot of his re-election campaign, aims to support the president’s policies and to project the power of the White House beyond Washington into local communities and media.

[...]  Immediately after the speech ended, organizers turned the sound down on Sen. Marco Rubio’s response and set up a laptop to hear a special message from president Obama, who would be addressing Organizing for Action activists on a national conference call. After a few minutes, Obama’s voice came through the speakers, telling the activists that he would be asking for their help in pushing Congress to adopt his second-term agenda.

There was something slightly different in his tone of voice. This was not a head of state addressing a nation; this was a local community organizer talking to his volunteers–not over them, but at them. The contrast in style created a feeling of intimacy, which made listeners feel he was speaking personally to them. Not everyone was convinced; one woman told me she doubted he would be able to achieve all he had set out to do.

Regardless, the very fact that the evening happened the way it did was a success for the new organization. The Obama camp believes it is less important to convince people with words than to condition them with deeds. And the deeds are not that complicated. For all the talk about high-tech voter turnout programs, the methods Obama uses to win are decidedly old-school. He wins because Republicans don’t bother to do the same.

There’s another conference call this weekend, when former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel and Organizing for Action Executive Director Jon Carson will be giving their foot soldiers their marching orders for advancing Obama’s economic agenda.

Republicans, where is your ground game to defeat this onslaught?

Unions, Hollywood Plan To Bankroll Obama’s New Activist Army

1baracksmassivecash

Brown shirts gotta stick together.

Kevin Bogardus reports at The Hill:

Labor unions and Hollywood donors are open to bankrolling Organizing for Action, the outside group that has been formed in support of President Obama’s second-term agenda.

Traditionally one of the biggest donors to Democrats, unions are considering putting their financial weight behind the group as it tries to harness the grassroots power of Obama’s reelection machine.

[...]  Organizing for Action will reportedly have access to the voter database that helped the president win the White House again in his more than $1 billion reelection bid. Jon Carson, who worked in the White House Office of Public Engagement, is the group’s executive director.

To the dismay of campaign finance reformers, Organizing for Action will operate as a 501(c)(4), a tax-exempt vehicle that was used during the 2012 campaign to evade donor disclosure while spending hundreds of millions of dollars on campaign ads.

Obama’s New ‘Organizing For Action’ Brownshirt Brigade Teaming Up With George Soros

Soros

This is so predictable, and it reveals exactly what philosophy and tactics this “community organizing” apparatus will operate by.  When Soros gets involved, nothing good can come of it.  I’m only surprised  he’s is allowing his involvement to be known publicly.

Joel Pollack warns at Breitbart:

While Republicans contemplate how to improve their party’s political performance at the Republican National Committee (RNC) winter meeting, which opens today, Democrats are already taking politics to a new level, creating parallel organizations to advocate for President Barack Obama’s agenda and using their political clout to rearrange private business relationships to their liking. American politics has never seen anything like it.

Politico reports today that major donors–including billionaire George Soros (above), bailout beneficiary Citi and others–were approached by Obama campaign veterans to donate millions to Organizing for America, the president’s new 501(c)4 non-profit advocacy group. Under the tax code, 501(c)4 groups do not have to disclose their donors–a provision, ironically, that President Obama spent years campaigning against.

They justify the contradiction by insisting their money is for “good government,”, while money raised by conservative groups is “poision,” according to Obama bundler Alan Solow, quoted by Politico. Still, the organizers maintain the pretense of involving small donors rather than highlighting the large checks that fund existing groups such as Media Matters and Center for American Progress to the tune of $60 million per year, combined.

In addition to Organizing for America, the left has already welcomed another new left-wing organization, the Democracy Initiative, which brings several activist and lobby groups together to agitate for their policy priorities. The Democracy Initiative builds on previous efforts, such as Health Care for America now, which worked with the Obama administration in 2009 to organize demonstrations in support of his heath reform law.

Obama’s Pastor Calls Republicans ‘Enemies,’ Prays For ‘Battle,’ Chants ‘Forward!’ During Church Service

OBAMA

Obama sure knows how to pick the radical wackos. Never, in all my years attending different churches, have I EVER heard a pastor attack a particular group of people as “enemies,” ESPECIALLY over political differences!

I guarantee that if a pastor from a church that a conservative (Sarah Palin?) attended made comments about going into “battle” against Democrat “enemies,” the news media would be freaking out for a week about the “controversy” surrounding his “violent,” “extremist” rhetoric, demanding his resignation, and they’d have all the dirt from his past dug up within 24 hours.

Ben Shapiro reports at Breitbart:

At Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church, Braxton reportedly crafted his speech around Obama’s personal political slogan: “Forward!”

Obama, said Braxton, was just like Moses facing the Red Sea: “forward is the only option … The people couldn’t turn around. The only thing that they could do was to go forward.” Obama, said Braxton, would have to overcome all obstacles – like opposition from Republicans, presumably, or the bounds of the Constitution. Braxton continued, “Mr. President, stand on the rock,” citing to Moses standing on Mount Horeb as his people camped outside the land of Israel.

In case Braxton missed it, America won its freedom 237 years ago, and the slaves were freed 150 years ago – by a REPUBLICAN.   Obama isn’t leading anybody out of slavery.  He’s leading them INTO slavery – the slavery of dependence on the Welfare State, which black conservatives like Star Parker call “Uncle Sam’s Plantation.”

But it wasn’t enough to compare Obama with the founder of Judaism and the prophet of the Bible. Braxton added that Obama’s opponents were like the Biblical enemies of Moses, and that Obama would have to enter the battle because “sometimes enemies insist on doing it the hard way.”

So anybody who doesn’t immediately bow and cave to Obama’s political agenda is an “enemy?”   Funny, I thought Jesus taught believers to LOVE their enemies.

The service ended with the pastor leading the crowd in a chant of “Forward.” Really.

This was no religious service. It was a worship service for the man Newsweek labeled “The Second Coming.” And if Obama thinks anything like the pastor he chose just before taking his oath of office, America is in for a long, narcissistic, imperial four years.

Indeed.

Where is the IRS to challenge the church’s tax exempt status for preaching politics from the pulpit?   Oh, that’s right: they only enforce that against conservative churches that don’t worship at the altar of the Almighty Messianic Welfare State.

The more the mask drops, the creepier it gets!

Keith Koffler reports at White House Dossier:

President Obama will remake his presidential campaign into a massive new movement  devoted to supporting his agenda, an unprecedented move that creates a brand new political organization devoted not to a Party, not to an idea – but to one charismatic leader.

The group, to be called Organizing for Action, opens for business Sunday, the day Obama is officially inaugurated.

If this type of organization has existed before in American politics on any similar scale, I’m not aware of it.

There are excellent reasons why we haven’t had mass groups devoted to powerful leaders in this country. Our whole system of government is designed to provide checks to protect against the accretion of too much power, to forestall mob rule. A mass organization that does the bidding of a single individual who also happens to be the president of the United States undermines such intentions.

[...]   OFA will be classified as a 501(c)4 group, which means donors can give it as much money as they want and none of the contributors’ names need be released. Never mind that Obama has ardently opposed this kind of thing for years.

Known during the campaign as Obama for America, the group includes the millions of people signed up to receive emails from the Obama campaign and thousands of activists ready to man phone banks, knock on doors, annoy their lawmakers and otherwise make things happen for the president.

The group was superbly well organized under campaign manager Jim Messina, who will maintain leadership. Senior Obama operatives like Robert Gibbs, David Plouffe, and Stephanie Cutter will sit on the board. The group will no doubt employ many of the leftist community organizing principles Obama learned years ago in Chicago.

This is the same group that bused in union thugs by the hundreds to try to intimidate Gov. Walker and the Republicans in Wisconsin.   Under a new name, Obama now officially has his own official brown shirt brigade.

Non-Stop Activism: How The Left Is Beating Us In Between Elections

The Community Organizer-in-Chief never leaves campaign mode. And neither do his foot soldiers. The entire Executive Branch has become his campaign arm – at taxpayer expense – to sell his ruthless agenda.

The election was barely a week ago, but already Obama is recruiting and organizing activists to push his agenda forward:

The White House is pulling a tactic out of its campaign playbook – and President Obama’s own community organizing past – using the organs of government to enlist average Americans to help Obama advocate for his priorities.

In an email sent to people who signed up to receive official updates from the White House, recipients are told to forward the message to their friends, asking them to help promote what is in effect White House propaganda. The White House email list, which government officials began compiling earlier in Obama’s term, is separate from the famed Obama campaign email list, but recipients are nonetheless being asked to engage in partisan political activity.

Conservatives need to recognize that we can’t combat that with just a few unpaid volunteers who show up a few weeks before elections and then go home for another four years. We have to be far more organized and find ways to keep conservative activists in the battle full-time.

Remember how Obama played “Campaigner-in-chief” for his entire first term, constantly criss-crossing the country to visit colleges, make flowery speeches, shake hands and fund-raise, all on the taxpayer’s dime?  He NEVER left campaign mode long enough to govern.  He continually attacked, polarized, and promoted his agenda, always treating the other side of the aisle as his political rivals instead of co-equal public servants.

But it wasn’t just Obama who stayed in permanent campaign mode.   Reports are that the 100+ Democrat field offices in Ohio were never shut down after 2008.   They continued to operate all throughout his presidency, preparing for his re-election.  Not only that, but Obama’s campaign arm of community organizers,”Organizing For America,” stayed active all four years. That’s how they were able to round up busloads of protesters to send to Wisconsin at a moment’s notice.  They never sleep.  They never rest between elections.  They’re constantly recruiting, training, agitating, and giving their people something to do.   Campaigning for Leftist candidates, legislation and causes is a full-time, year-round operation that never shuts down.

If you peruse your local Craigslist job listings in the non-profit category, you’ll soon discover that many of them are for organizations who will pay you to “protect democracy,” “make healthcare more affordable,” “promote renewable energy and sustainability,” “fight for civil rights,” and dozens of other left-wing causes.  None of these groups are restricted by campaign finance laws.  All of them serve as front groups for the Democrat party, where money can be funneled and campaigning funded non-stop.  Groups like “Jobs For Good Causes” are dedicated to training and paying activists to stay in the game while conservatives are quietly going back to their everyday lives and waiting until 2016 to stretch their atrophied political muscle.

Even more frighteningly, a lot of these groups get their money from taxpayers. They’re experts at getting grants and public funding, so we end up paying for the rope they use to hang us.    Back in February, the Democrat lawyers successfully shook down several banks into offering a $1 billion settlement, which was promptly channeled to ACORN-like groups, who were preparing to “get out the vote” for Obama, including using massive voter fraud.   Scams like this are where they’re getting a large portion of the cash to pay their “volunteers” to do activist work year-round.

Their goal is to keep growing the leviathan so they have a bigger taxpayer trough to feed from – and pay more activists with. Ours is to eliminate the trough altogether.  

Conservatives will have to find more financially sustainable sources of revenue, like fundraising from individuals and businesses that want to support liberty.  But if we don’t start finding ways to keep year-round activists in action, we’ll always be playing catch-up for every election.

Creepy Campaign Ad Features Brainwashed Children Blaming Parents For Not Voting For Obama

Just in time for Halloween,  a group called The Future Children Project released this frighteningly Stalinesque campaign ad of Stepford children singing about the world they supposedly live in under a Romney presidency, with “endless wars,” “poison air,” and oceans full of oil.   And it’s all our fault for not voting for Obama, of course:


View on YouTube

Newsbusters appropriately compares it to the infamous Lyndon Johnson “Daisy” ad warning of a countdown to nuclear war if he lost to Goldwater.

Here are the lyrics:

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
Big Bird is sacked
The Earth is cracked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!

Noel Sheppard observes:

[I]t’s one thing to write such disgusting lyrics. It’s quite another to get children to sing them.

If the folks at this agency possess such a thing, they should be ashamed of themselves for involving youngsters in this project.

Or do they believe like Goebbels did that it’s okay to involve children in spreading propaganda?

Whatever the answer, LBJ’s Daisy ad was considered so over the top that the campaign only aired it once.

How many times will Americans be subjected to this new piece of filth?
