Didn’t order that?
In advance of the new Obama donor scandal story that many conservatives have been buzzing about and which is purportedly set to hit the pages of Newsweek/Daily Beast tomorrow morning, I’m reprinting a selection of my previous blog posts over the last four years that exposed various aspects of the Obama crooked campaign cash-o-matic machine. […]
Always look under the Astroturf mat. Senate Democrats have failed to pass a budget in nearly 1,200 days. But they are carving out time today to vote on the loophole-ridden, incumbency protection racket, masquerading as “campaign finance reform,” dubbed the DISCLOSE Act. Wait a minute. Didn’t they already vote on the DISCLOSE Act? Why, yes. […]

Super PAC-men: Obama’s bundlers gone wild! by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 The White House didn’t blow a dog whistle for deep-pocketed liberal donors on Monday. No, the administration whipped out a supersized vuvuzela. Blaring message: Let loose the campaign finance-bundling hounds of super PAC war! President Obama’s campaign manager, Jim Messina, who served […]
The People’s President is raising money any way he can — and the fashion world’s 1 percent-ers have stepped up to the plate to help. Via the WSJ: At a New York fund-raising event Tuesday called “Runway to Win,” President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign plans to begin selling campaign-themed tote bags, T-shirts and accessories designed […]
**Written by Doug Powers Wednesday night was the lighting of the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan. President Obama’s people either forgot to check the City’s schedule or didn’t care, because they booked three fundraisers there for the same night. Fortunately, it’s the holiday season, and the good cheer that was resonating around the […]
Let the sun shine in… After I blogged last week about Barack Obama’s burgeoning LightSquared scandal, I received a miffed e-mail from billionaire hedge fund manager/Obama donor/LightSquared principal backer Philip Falcone under the subject line “Tip.” Falcone defended the Obama administration and noted that the predecessor to LightSquared, called Skyterra, had benefited from some previous […]
Whenever Obama says “millionaires, billionaires, and corporate jet owners,” substitute “Obama bundlers”
At his latest in a series of pointless press conferences decrying talk over action, President Obama this morning trotted out his worn old class-warfare line about the need for millionaires, billionaires, and corporate jet owners to share in the “sacrifice.” Whenever you hear him use that line, substitute “Obama bundlers.” Perhaps someone can slip it […]
**Written by Doug Powers Donald Trump went off on Anthony Weiner today. HAP has the full video, but here’s a partial transcript I jotted down just to give you an idea: Many people have been asking me about Anthony Weiner, the congressman from New York who had big ambitions and wanted to run for Mayor […]
Hollyweird, meet reality. The WSJ has a must-read op-ed exposing how liberal comedian Stephen Colbert’s campaign finance gag blew up in his face. In an attempt to protest the Supreme Court’s ruling last year striking down major portions of the speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance law, Colbert set out to form a political action committee and […]
**Written by Doug Powers As far as I’m concerned, a response to the White House’s desperate “foreign donations” accusations wasn’t entirely necessary, because the claims are merely intended to rattle the cage of a Democrat base feeling beaten down, hopeless, changeless and progressiveless, but the Chamber of Commerce responded anyway: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce […]
(Photoshop credit: Sean via Doug Powers) The Obama White House has been an echo chamber for the Soros-funded Center for American Progress from Day One — from bashing Fox News, attacking talk radio, and pimping “media justice” and the Orwellian Fairness Doctrine, to crusading for the government health care takeover using Astroturfed doctors and taxpayer-funded […]
Thanks to all of you who helped with Operation Buck Up Maine and phoned Sens. Snowe and Collins to hold the line against the special interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act. The Senate is now voting on the do-over cloture motion. (It failed to muster 60 votes in July. Cloture vote 57-41.) GOP Leader McConnell assailed the […]
They won’t take no for an answer. So we have to give them both barrels again. On July 27, the Senate voted down the Democrats’ union-friendly, loophole-ridden, Orwellian-titled DISCLOSE Act. The bogus campaign finance reform bill was, as Sen. Mitch McConnell put it, a “transparent attempt to rig fall elections” that was written “behind closed […]
My column today puts the DISCLOSE debacle in the broader context of the Democrats’ reign of darkness. Underscoring the theme of theme of the column: The story from Fox Business on how the “financial reform” bill championed by Obama exempts the SEC from FOIA requests. The transparency farce continues. Always look under the Astroturf mat. […]
Stop the special-interest, speech-squelching DISCLOSE Act; Collins, Graham oppose, Snowe is a no; McConnell blasts Dem attempt to “rig fall elections;” Update: DISCLOSE Act fails on 57-41 cloture vote
The union-friendly, loophole-ridden, Orwellian-titled DISCLOSE Act comes up for a cloture vote in the Senate this afternoon. It appears doomed. But take nothing for granted. It passed the House in June. This is a relief: Squishy GOP Sen. Susan Collins announced she’s a no vote: The legislation exempts some politically powerful, large membership groups like […]
