So President Obama feels qualified to sit in judgement of the Chamber of Commerce for alleged foreign donations. I would think that he of all people would want to studiously avoid comparisons to his overseas black-hooded supporters. I can only imagine that these these guys sometimes forget that we no longer live in a left wing echo chamber when liberals could get away with even the most egregious hypocrisy.
Sorry, President Obama, the left doesn’t own the only megaphone in the house anymore. We have honest investigators like Pamela Geller to helpfully point out the foreign contributions that President Obama himself has benefited from — many from some pretty nasty sources:
I have been calling for a special prosecutor for years, ever since I exposed the millions Obama received from Muslim nations, Hamas-controlled Gaza and other foreign countries.
Obama warned Thursday that “groups that receive foreign money are spending huge sums to influence American elections, and they won’t tell you where the money for their ads come from.” He also said that “just this week, we learned that one of the largest groups paying for these ads regularly takes in money from foreign corporations.”
Franken then duly hurried to do Obama’s bidding, calling on the Federal Election Commission to investigate the Chamber of Commerce, the group to which Obama was referring.
We move to a theater of the absurd upon hearing Al Franken, who lost his election on election night and began pulling votes out of car trunks to steal that election, calling for an investigation of foreign money.
Geller’s investigations prove that Jew-killing terorists in Gaza had a great interest in installing Obama as the U.S. president, and backed it up with cold hard cash:
As I show in great detail in my book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War On America (Simon & Schuster), Obama’s 2008 campaign finance records are full of riddles, mysteries, and unanswered questions. It was I who broke the explosive news stories of Obama’s contributions from Gaza (Hamas-controlled Rafah) (documentation here), and of how he lied about refunding those jihad donations — not to mention the tens of millions of dollars Obama received in donations from foreign countries (scroll this link).
Yes, I checked over John McCain’s FEC records, too. They were so clean, you could eat dinner off them. Not Obama’s. Contributing nearly $25,000 to the Obama campaign was Monir Edwan, who was listed on FEC documents as contributing from the city of Rafah in the state “GA.” Georgia? No – there is no Rafah in the Peach State. Monir Edwan sent money to Obama from Rafah, Gaza.
Rafah is a Gaza refugee camp.
According to the FEC, contributions to the Obama campaign from three brothers, Osama, Monir and Hossam Edwan, all from Rafah, totaled $33,000. And they weren’t alone. Al-Jazeera reported on March 31, 2008 that Gazans were manning phone banks for the Obama campaign. Here is video of those Gaza phone banks.
The Obama campaign claimed that they had returned $33,500 in illegal contributions from Gaza – despite the fact that records do not show that it was returned, and the brothers said they did not receive any money. And indeed, Obama’s refunds and redesignations on file with the FEC show no refund to Osama, Hossam, or Monir Edwan in the Rafah refugee camp.
When I confronted Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) about the Gaza phone banks issue in South Florida in early November 2008, he said that if there “really were phone banks in Gaza, that would be a major campaign issue.” But he laughed at the idea that Obama was receiving campaign contributions from Gaza. The mainstream media laughed with him, continuing its refusal to cover this explosive story.
Fortunately for Obama, in our culture it is impossible to be both a leftist and a hypocrite, so no apologies to the Chamber will be required.
