Return of the money changers

While most of America wants to see the money changers out of the Capitol temple, this president ups the ante to bring in more of them. Then, no doubt, he will complain about the money and influence in politics.

Obama thinks what we need is more money and special interest influence. His rebooted campaign raises so many questions on so many levels.

NYT: Obama’s Backers Seek Big Donors to Press Agenda

President Obama’s political team is fanning out across the country in pursuit of an ambitious goal: raising $50 million to convert his re-election campaign into a powerhouse national advocacy network, a sum that would rank the new group as one of Washington’s biggest lobbying operations.

But the rebooted campaign, known as Organizing for Action, has plunged the president and his aides into a campaign finance limbo with few clear rules, ample potential for influence-peddling, and no real precedent in national politics.

In private meetings and phone calls, Mr. Obama’s aides have made clear that the new organization will rely heavily on a small number of deep-pocketed donors, not unlike the “super PACs” whose influence on political campaigns Mr. Obama once deplored.

At least half of the group’s budget will come from a select group of donors who will each contribute or raise $500,000 or more, according to donors and strategists involved in the effort.

Unlike a presidential campaign, Organizing for Action has been set up as a tax-exempt “social welfare group.” That means it is not bound by federal contribution limits, laws that bar White House officials from soliciting contributions, or the stringent reporting requirements for campaigns. In their place, the new group will self-regulate.

Officials said it would voluntarily disclose the names of large donors every few months and would not ask administration personnel to solicit money, though Obama aides will probably appear at some events.

“No precedent”? – That is until Obama created one, another historic first for the Radical in Chief. He sure is working at leaving a lasting legacy/stain on our nation.

The Left’s Soros-funded influence is not enough. They need more big money and big donors. Sure it will be the largest lobby and influence in Washington, what would you expect from a usurping dictator?

And for giving the big money, get big meetings with the president. Misinformation Secretary, Jay Carney claims this is not selling influence. How is it not? Officials appearing at events are not soliciting money either. (pardon my Casablanca chuckle)

Yet another conflict the media can pretend does not exist. The Obama Alinskyites can trot out their “the American people don’t care about any of this” excuse

    Good article Bull. First thought that popped into my mind is will this brainwash organization have to follow the Obamacide mandate and offer their female employees free next day murder pills? Do ya’ think they’ll get a free pass???

    King Sumbitch is the most law breaking bastard I’ve ever come across. Thank goodness Stalin and Hitler didn’t have all the supporters and cash cows King Sumbitch counts on. Brainwashing going into nationwide pandemic mode now. Asshat In Chief has set more unlawful precedents than all previous presidents combined and not a damn sole in the legislative or judiciary branch’s are doing crap to stop or even slow him down. I was either born way too late or way too early. I’d rather not be around to watch Hitler Jr. ruin our once great nation…

      Dave, or maybe Organizing for Action will provide abortions right there in the office, (at lunch time) But yea, they will get exemptions, like taxes, for anything they want.

      Well, we have the First Bastard and the First Bitch who will do as they damn well please. He has lowered the standard for everything.(even while he claims he raised it) He set the precedent at an all time low; anything goes.

  2. Heard this on the radio…and almost drove off the road.

    Good grief, BR: So, I guess this must be like Clinton selling nights in the Lincoln Bedroom, which wasn’t really selling anything at all.
    Nope, no access, no Quid Pro Quo to be seen here. Just Obama deciding to meet with some folks that all, coincidentally, HAPPEN to give this random group which-shall-not-be-named half a mil.
    Each.

    Yet tonight, this news will be met with yawns by our professionally incurious media.

    But hey, did you know that Rubio drank water a couple weeks ago??!

    Bull, had a thought. There are more billionaire Repukes that you can shake a stick and hit, so why in the hell hasn’t any of them bought up major media outlets? Big Mouth Trump has loaded and loves to shoot his mouth off, but it stops there. Repukes receive gigantic donations for elections, but it stops there. Are the radicals smarter than us, meaner than us, more vigilant than us or more patient as waiting for a long term plan to come together? They’ve taken over our education system, major media outlets, plugged in their radical judges all over the place for years and brainwashed over half the nation they are owed by the United States instead of you have every opportunity to succeed in the United States. We’ve sat back for over 70 years watching the water get hotter and hotter and now everyone seems surprised the pot finally boiled over and we’re getting burned. I hate to think so, but I’m coming to the point where I think the radicals are better at all the above I mentioned…

      Dave ol’ chap, you hit the nail right on the head. They infiltrated and institutionalized the commie left as the default authority. I see no where that represents America, freedom, our heritage, our future or anything; yet their perception is supposed to be our reality.

      And their full-throated disdain really came out in the Reagan years. Now this bastard in chief has taken that institutionalism to the stratosphere. Their anti-gun agenda is just representative of the entire mindset. No one can match their brainwashing and Alinsky tactics, but truth has gone the way of dinosaurs.

      They can define their own scum but I’m sick of them defining the conservatives. The only thing commies understand is power and control….

        Bull, good point about the way they can swallow down their own puke and not say a word. Like Jackson Jr. being a lowlife and losing his seat, but the media minions were almost completely silent. Now they’ve got another woman that took his place that is part of Team Sumbitch and is a big anti-gun advocate. Go figure right….they’re still beating Rubio to death for taking a drink of frigging water. Not that we need to drink water to stay alive or anything important like that…

          Dave, LOL quiet as church mice on Jackson, They never even talked about what Rubio said, just the water. You know, they can always find someone worse to replace the last crook. Just when you think you seen everything…. like Reagan said, “there they go again”.

      Pepp, I second that. He’s got SO much going on that the enormity of sewage and stench detract from even the thought of cleaning it up. He’s a walking disaster — with his brownshirts in tow.
