Jawa Report has successfully connected the dots...and all roads lead back to Obama

The shocking and false attack ads on Sarah Palin and her family apparently all began with a PR Firm run by Ethan Winner, and is the same mentioned in Jawa Report: family that runs the PR firm has extensive ties to the Democratic Party, the netroots, and are staunch Obama supporters..

More confirmation of this is the fact that the youtube account that posted all of these false attack ads is now closed... see for yourself, google "eswinner youtube" and one result is:

www.youtube.com/user/eswinner - Similar pages - Note this

more proof from Jawa Report:

This same voice-over artist has worked extensively with David Axelrod's firm, which has a history of engaging in phony grassroots efforts, otherwise known as "astroturfing."

David Axelrod is Barack Obama's chief media strategist.

The same voice-over artist has worked directly for the Barack Obama campaign

This is proof of what we suspected all along...

Barack Obama has apparently known about these attacks...knows the parties involved...knows that these attacks are false...and yet Obama continues to stand by without one word of objection..now we know why...

here is a screenshot of one of the videos that Winner took down from youtube

Michelle Malkin has a great summary of this too...

Let me underline that: At some point between approx. 12 midnight - 2am Eastern, “eswinner” logged into his account and tried to erase all traces of the deceitful, Palin-bashing ad.

And at 4:26am Eastern, here’s the message that appeared when attempting to view “eswinner’s” previously accessible account:

As Malkin summarizes: But it’s only a matter of time before the truth comes out.





In response to questions about Democrats concerns over Obama winning in November:

“We’re familiar with this,” Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, told The New York Times a few days ago. “And I’m sure between now and Nov. 4 there will be another period of hand-wringing and bed-wetting. It comes with the territory.”

Obama and his handlers are pedantic, pompous elitists! Even their supporters are beneath them in their opinion...

The Obama that said this at the 9/11 Forum:

Part of what makes America work is the fact that we believe in individual responsibility and self-reliance..

Or the Obama that said this last night to his Hollywood backers:

“And this should be hard, because what we're asking of the American people is a fundamental shift away from an economic theory that has dominated over the last eight years that says, ‘You give more to the most and hope that it trickles down for everybody else, an economic theory that basically says you're on your own if you don't have healthcare, you're on your own if you don't have a job; if you're born into poverty, lift yourself up by your own bootstraps, you are on your own.”

The Obama that said at the 9/11 Forum:

OBAMA: Well, first of all, as commander-in-chief, my job is to keep America safe. And that means insuring that we’ve got the best military on Earth.

Or the Obama that said this on disarming America:
(video on the link so you can hear him say it)

..I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems...

...I will not weaponize space...

...I will slow development of future combat systems...

...and I will institute an independent "Defense Priorities Board" to ensure the quadrennial defense review is not used to justify unnecessary spending...

...I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons...

...and to seek that goal, I will not develop nuclear weapons...

...I will seek a global ban on the production of fissile material...

...and I will negotiate with Russia to take our ICBMs off hair-trigger alert...

...and to achieve deep cuts in our nuclear arsenals...

I mean seriously...WHICH ONE SHOULD WE BELIEVE!?




But it’s worse than that. Much worse! They were using our money to keep themselves in power and to fund groups like ACORN which is in the business of registering non-eligible voters and duplicate voters. Michelle Malkin reports:

DETROIT: Several municipal clerks across the state are reporting fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications, most of them from a nationwide community activist group working to help low- and moderate-income families.

The majority of the problem applications are coming from the group ACORN, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, which has a large voter registration program among its many social service programs. ACORN’s Michigan branch, based in Detroit, has enrolled 200,000 voters statewide in recent months, mostly with the use of paid, part-time employees.“There appears to be a sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications,” said Kelly Chesney, spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State’s Office. “And it appears to be widespread.”

CLEVELAND: A national organization that conducts voter registration drives for low-income people has curtailed its push in Cuyahoga County after the Board of Elections accused its workers of submitting fraudulent registration cards.

The board is investigating the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Results of the inquiry could be turned over to the county prosecutor.

Board employees said ACORN workers often handed in the same name on a number of voter registration cards, but showing that person living at different addresses. Other times, cards had the same name listed, but a different date of birth. Still another sign of possible fraud showed a number of people living at an address that turned out to be a restaurant.“I’m obviously very concerned,” Board Chairman Jeff Hastings said. “This goes to the essence of our democracy.”


In July, when the "housing bill" was in Congress this was reported in WSJ and pretty much went unnoticed:

But an underreported part of this story is that Majority Leader Harry Reid refused to allow a vote on Republican Jim DeMint's amendment to bar political donations and lobbying by Fannie and its sibling, Freddie Mac.

This is a rare parliamentary move for a body in which even Senators in the minority party have long been able to force votes. The strong-arm play illustrates how politically powerful these government-sponsored enterprises remain even after going hat in hand to taxpayers. This has implications in the days ahead, because the Beltway battle now shifts to who will be the new regulator for the mortgage giants and how much political insulation he'll have from Fannie and Freddie pressure.

We believe in the right of individuals and businesses to lobby Congress. But with Fan and Fred now explicitly guaranteed by taxpayers, letting them ladle cash all over Washington amounts to using government-guaranteed profits to lobby for continued government protection. Congress sets the rules in favor of Fan and Fred, which then repay the Members with cash from their rigged profit stream. This is the government lobbying itself for more government.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac handed out $800,000 to U.S. House and Senate Members this election cycle.

Freddie Mac's foundation handed out $25 million to political groups, think tanks and other Beltway outfits in 2007 alone, more than any other foundation in the country

When you go in the voting booth in November, take your list with you.

This is dereliction of duty and I want names! I want heads to roll!!



This is important, so pay attention!

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made contributions to Barack Obama

Barack Obama, through his power in the Senate, gave money to ACORN

ACORN is in the business, yes today, of registering duplicate and ineligible voters

Plain and simple: this is designed to give money to those that will keep certain members of congress in power.



Power and Control reports that Obama backers were behind mortgage industry meltdown.

Which brings us to the Fannie Mae Foundation. A sweet little set up for handing out cash to a nice little outfit called ACORN among others.

Go to the post, the money trail is too numerous to post here.



Peter Wallison was on CSPAN last Sunday. Wallison gave some real insight into what really happened with the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac disaster. I linked the transcript, but for brevity I will highlight the important parts here.

What caught my attention, and this is difficult to find in the media, is the role that congress had in this. Also referenced here is the breakdown of campaign contributions that went to members of Congress from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that is provided by opensecrets.org.

This conversation only strengthens the argument that is going on now about how broken Washington is, and Barack Obama is right at the top of that list of recipients of campaign contributions from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. John McCain is on that list too, but you must remember that this list is a total of contributions they received from 1989 to 2008. That is a 19 year span for McCain, a 3 year span for Obama. It breaks down annually like this:

Over the 19 year period McCain received $21,550, which works out to $1,134.21 per year.

Obama was only in the Senate for three years and received $126,349 which is $42,116.23 per year.

The most telling thing is the fact that Barack Obama, while talking a good game about “CHANGE”, jumped right in to get his piece of the action.

Three Democrats head the list of beneficiaries from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – Christopher Dodd, Barack Obama and John Kerry. THREE DEMOCRATS THAT RAN FOR PRESIDENT.

Christopher Dodd, who is on the TOP of the list of recipients now is trying to shift blame and attention to Paulson, Secretary of the Treasury, and President Bush by implication:

“The Democratic Chairman, called the White House, accusation incredible and libel, Mr. Dodd all but accused Mr. Paulson, Secretary of the Treasury, of misleading Congress less than two months ago”

It is clear that Dodd, along with many of his peers in Congress, got caught with their hands in the cookie jar.

WALLISON: But this is a – frankly, this is just another part of the scandalous process that was going on here. This is using essentially government money, taxpayer money, to lobby Congress indirectly through these groups.

And more has happened. In the new housing legislation, one of the elements in this housing legislation, which contained the new regulations for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, never would have been passed, but for the fact that the Democrats wanted the housing bill aspect of this, because the problems in the housing market – Senator Shelby said, there isn’t going to be a housing bill out of this committee unless you put tough regulations of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in it. So, he got those tough regulations in the bill.

But in addition, Congressman Barney Frank in the House wanted a special fund that comes out of the profits of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, and is then used for all of these community groups around the country.

So, we see the same process continuing to work. Even though reform legislation was passed, it contains a nice slush fund that can be used by community groups around the country. So we see the same process continuing to work, even though reform legislation was passed, it contains a nice slush fund that can be used by the officials of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to reward community groups.

LAMB: You can go on Google and go looking for this Freddie Mae foundation and some of the information is still there. I did it and I just looked up one state, one year, to get an idea of the kind of money they gave away …

WALLISON: See, ordinary corporations, of course, give away lots of money to community organizations and charitable organizations and cultural organizations, and they do this in part to support their products.

So if General Motors gives a gift to a cultural organization, what they hope is that people will then think better of buying a General Motors car.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are different. Those gifts were given for the purpose of building political support for them, not their products because they weren’t at that point selling any products directly to the—to individuals. They were buying mortgages from banks. These gifts were given to organizations that would then, hopefully, come back and support them politically in Congress, so they were using, in effect, the taxpayer money that was backing them to gain—to buy political support in districts around the country that then reflected back on the Congressmen and Senators here in the United States. That was the process that was going on here.

The shell game...Congress is playing the shell game...with OUR MONEY


Back on the Job

I took a hiatus from blogging, only to find myself emailing everyone again, so I am back.

Whether anyone (or no one) reads this blog, at least I have an outlet and a way to express my complete and utter frustration at the liberals in this country and some of the American people that are mesmerized by their rhetoric.
