And now, a word about "Foreign connections."
Rahm Emmanual is an Israeli who served in the IDF.
Most of Obama's relatives (his grandmother, cousins, half-brother, etc.) are either here illegally (his aunt) or live in Kenya, where Obama was born.
The primary financial supporters of pro-Obama media are George Soros (move on.org) and Arianna Huffington (Huffington Post).
A guy who was born in Kenya, spent most of his childhood in Indonesia, mysteriously has a Connecticut SS# and who's own father worked in the government of a foreign country (Kenya......again) should probably not speak about "foreign connections.
Hopefully, he'll make the mistake of visiting Arizona, where Sherrif Joe will ask him to show his birth certificate.

Oh No!

The reason not everyone should be allowed to have a gun is because many of you will just use it to shoot yourself in the foot.

Yes. Both the left and the right should agree on this, but they don't.

The GOP is for sale....Straight up, they don't deny it anymore.

The Dems do suck and aren't beyond corruption, but the GOP expects the conservatives in this country to close thier eyes, hold thier nose and flat out just accept it.

They position it as a false choice.. corporate run Gov. or a Socialist Gov.

For the love of God the GOP Overturned McCain-Feingold...Their presidential nominees own campaign finance reform law.

"American's For Prosperity"
www.americansforprosperity.org...

President: Tim Phillips
Tim helped found Century Strategies, one of the nation’s leading public affairs, political consulting and public relations firms.


his first and highest-profile consulting jobs was for Enron, a client that he garnered in 1997, reportedly through his connections to Karl Rove, who later made Reed a consultant in the 2000 presidential campaign. Century Strategies earned more than $300,000 from Enron for mounting grassroots lobbying campaigns to help build backing for energy deregulation." Other clients have included the school-focused media company Channel One, Verizon and casino interests working with Reed friend Jack Abramoff in an effort to block Native American tribes from opening new, competing casinos.

www.sourcewatch.org...



Just before the last presidential election, Bush campaign adviser Ralph Reed offered to help Enron Corp. deregulate the electricity industry by working his "good friends" in Washington and by mobilizing religious leaders and pro-family groups for the cause.

For a $380,000 fee, the conservative political strategist proposed a broad lobbying strategy that included using major campaign contributors, conservative talk shows and nonprofits to press Congress for favorable legislation. Reed said he could place letters from community leaders in the opinion pages of major newspapers, producing clips that Reed would "blast fax" to Capitol Hill.

"We are a loyal member of your team and are prepared to do whatever fits your strategic plan," Reed wrote in an Oct. 23, 2000, memo obtained by The Washington Post.

"In public policy," he wrote, "it matters less who has the best arguments and more who gets heard -- and by whom."




Reed offered to mobilize that network in an effort to deregulate the electricity market. At the time, Enron was seeking open access to the nation's power grid so it could compete with traditional utilities.

Reed's memo stresses that his firm's "long history of organizing these groups makes us ideally situated to build a broad coalition" benefiting Enron. He said Enron's arguments for deregulation were less important than commanding attention by enlisting the aid of elected officials' friends and supporters.

"There are certain people -- a friend or family member, key party person, civic or business leader, or major donor -- whose correspondence must be presented to the [elected] official for his personal reading and response," Reed wrote.

Lovely group...ENRON, JACK ABRAMOFF, KOCH INDUSTRIES

Are there any icons of corruption that this man has not worked for?

Even the conservative JUDICIAL WATCH called for investigation of Tim Phillips and the Enron scheme to buy politicians...what does that tell you?


Shall I now go through the rouges gallery of the rest of "Prosperity for America's" board?

You make no valid argument, MARXIST and very few do. This not about a good Obama or bad Bush, NO Difference in where we are heading just how and when we get there and not about who is steering the ship. You are obviously an Obama supporter MARXIST, for what reason(s)? I am curious what appeals to you about this guy? My stance on the Political Influence funding issue is that NO funding should be allowed from ANY Business, Business Association, Government Entity, Foundation, Church etal. should be allowed for ANY political reason. No ACORN, No Bill Gates funding, No Cato Institute, Ford Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation------NO Funding PERIOD, this Nation is full of ignorant, selfish, self indulging, Fascist, Marxist, Socialist, conservative, liberal, right wing, left wing + more etc. Very few AMERICANS remain. You agree with Obama on National Health care and private sector bailouts, why? Do you sympathize with Bill Ayers as well? What would you like to see happen with this nation MARXIST?

The Tea Party is NOT part of the GOP nor of the Democrat party. If the funding were to go to one of the fixtured government parties that are strangling the peoples voices by forcing us to vote either red or blue, then I would say large corporate donations or union donations are wrong.

However, the Tea Party presenly is an independent entity that represents the millions of us who are not going to fall in line with politics as usual and give our funding from our pockets to the Repubs or the Dems.

I think it is hilarious that he wants to blame insurance companies for trying to undermine the Health Care Reform law.

If anyone remembers, the INSURANCE COMPANIES WROTE THAT LEGISLATION!!!!!

It is high time that this racist, ignorant, whiny, pathetic excuse for a president resign or get kicked out of office. He has no clue how to do the job and is incapable of distinguishing theory from reality. He does not get that theory does not always coincide or work in the real world. I mean the guy has never had a real job.

I wouldn't hire this guy to run a fast food restaurant with his level of experience and the idiot voters in this country hired him to lead the entire nation.

Good Grief, is it not apparent to everyone that Obama represents the same people, the same interest, the same Global Elite that Bush, Clinton, Bush and pretty much every President in our history represented? That Obama is a House XXXXXX, an Oreo, an Trojan Virus sent in amongst the Minorities to keep them quiet and not rioting while they finish putting their control grid in place, blowing up the economy so the few can get all the more richer and wipe out the only group capable of fighting them..the Middle Class.

Surely all of this is obvious but, what is to be done about it?

When the vast majority of funding comes from one source - and a source that has a vested interest in opposing certain legislation - it's not "grassroots" by any stretch.


"What is it you think you've got there, Ryan?" One of my favorite lines from Clear and Present Danger.

So they received money from Koch. So what? Now, can you extrapolate that into some kind of crime? Don't think so.

Thank goodness there are groups like AFP and Koch. They help to fight Cap and Trade and other oppressive taxation designed to make Obama and the unions rich(er).

Oh, and the term 'grassroots'. Puh-leeze. Now you're just grasping at straws.:shk:

So, you're admitting that the GOP was just making up what was in the bill, then? If they were "locked out' and not "allowed to see" the bill, then how could they keep telling us what was in it?


No, they were just giving it their best guess since they were locked out of the process.

How can you defend Pelosi and Reid locking them out of discussions? Were it done to them, they'd be howling like banshees.

All of the people who use this forum and other forums to run free with their Bias against Obama or the current presidential cabinet really do the truth as well as everything this board stands for and all of those looking for the truth a huge disservice.
It really does get tedious.

Well here is a conspiracy for you. I am begining to think all the people who rant and rave about Obama being a muslim, born in Kenya, being Communist, a racist, NWO, evil, etc. Inlcuding this OP all work for Obama. Think about it. If all the anti Obama stuff your average American hears is clearly hyperbole, taken out of context, or in most cases a complete lie then the people ranting and saying it all look like a nutters. So the preception becomes anyone who is negative about Obama is also a nutter. So when some one actualy has legit complaint about the guy people will look at him and say, oh your one of those are you.

Their Leader and President of "Americans For Prosperity, Tim Phillips also worked for Enron and Jack Abramhoff. At the time even the right wing group "Judicial Watch" called for an investigation.

Just because he didn't serve time, doesn't mean he isn't a criminal.

He also worked with Abramhoff to lobby congress to continue to allow slave labor, rape and prostitution...all in the name of Jesus...Great group you are defending here.



Part of Phillip’s role at Century Strategies was to manage the firm’s direct mail subsidiary, Millennium Marketing. In 1998, now disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff hired Phillips’ firm to pressure members of Congress to vote against legislation that would have made the U.S. commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands subject to federal wage and worker safety laws.

A federal report “found that Chinese women were subject to forced abortions and that women and children were subject to forced prostitution in the local sex-tourism industry.”

Nonetheless, Phillips sent out mailers claiming Chinese workers “are exposed to the teachings of Jesus Christ” while on the islands, and many “are converted to the Christian faith and return to China with Bibles in hand.”

The mailers then encouraged the recipients to contact lawmakers and ask them to oppose the Marianas labor reform legislation.

Jack Abramoff is the scummiest of the scum, he is exactly where he should be - in federal prison. He was a republican lobbyist and deal maker and one of the worst things to come out of Washington. Anything he touched or was involved with should be treated like toxic waste.

Dont forget, one could also learn if he recieved funding as a foreign student. Only true statement made by this Marxist trash is that he was a dual citizen at birth; Brittish/American which will come back to bite him.

Back on topic though, why would any company or group need to disclose anything but the amount? The left is really grasping at straws, we are wittnessing the death of the progressive left. Like every other issue Obama has no argument that has any strength behind it, so he resorts to attacking people and groups.

Only this this so-called disclose act will do is give liberal lawmakers targets to regulate. The crazy fringe left needs to realize, they have made their bed now they must lay in itl come november Obumma's agenda will be stopped.

How so? What is in your college records that would give any insight into your way of thinking? Please be specific.


Don't you find it odd that he would order his collage transcripts sealed?


No.


Why?


Because I did not find it odd when Bush did it, Clinton did it, etc. Why did you wait till now to worry about it?

If you were following along, we were talking about his college and BIRTH records. If you can not figure out whether or not he is a citizen from his birth records then chances are pretty good you will not be able to understand anything you find in his college records.
