Obama corruption, Money laundering, Acorn, FEC rules, No Quarter USA, Money Laundering Scandal?, Acorn voter fraud

Once again, No Quarter USA comes through with more facts about the real Obama and the Obama campaign. There are many documented ties to crime and corruption. Obama’s legal retainer setup with Robert Blackwell “smelled” like money laundering. The No Quarter blog has uncovered what looks like “the Obama Campaign falsifying its FEC disclosure reports by using a front company to disguise its relationship with ACORN, a controversial group” Here are some exerpts from the article:

“According to Federal Election Commission (FEC) financial disclosure reports filed by the campaign earlier this year, between February 25th and May 17th Obama paid $832,598 to Citizens Services, Inc. (CSI), one of the nearly seventy Not-for-Profit companies registered at the ACORN New Orleans headquarters on 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue [SEE IMAGE OF THE NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS of CSI as well as 20 other businesses.]. CSI now also shares an office with ACORN in Chicago at 209 W. Jackson St., home of the SEIU (Service Employees International Union).

On the surface, the 11 separate payments to CSI appear to be for services typically useful to a campaign. However, as confirmed by one of its directors, CSI does not offer the services listed on the Obama campaign expense reports. According to the director, and as found in various disclosure reports from other candidates, CSI specializes in field operations, specifically grass roots organizing for get out the vote efforts. The Obama expense reports list the following payments to CSI: $564,342 for Stage, Sound, Lighting, $138,000 for Advance Work, $18,417 for Polling and $98,451 for Travel/Lodging. There is no “get out the vote” expenditure to CSI in the reports.”

 

“According to the FEC, in a situation where a campaign committee reports that they paid a company for services that the company says they do not provide, there is reason to be suspicious. It was irregular. And, it was inappropriate. To wit in 1997 Congresswoman Mary Rose Oakar (OH) was prosecuted by the U.S. Justice Department for conspiracy to deceive the FEC as to the true nature of the campaign contributions and expenditures that she was required to report. Falsifying federal disclosure reports is a serious matter and it is a crime. If the FEC chooses to exercise equal enforcement then Senator Obama could very well be subject to prosecution.”

“Title 11: Federal Elections. § 111.4 Complaints (2 U.S.C. 437g(a)(1)).
(a) Any person who believes that a violation of any statute or regulation over which the Commission has jurisdiction has occurred or is about to occur may file a complaint in writing to the General Counsel, Federal Election Commission, 999 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20463.”

Michelle Malkin published an article on June 25, 2008, ” The ACORN Obama Knows.” Here are some exerpts from the article:

“Obama also sat on the boards of the Woods Fund and Joyce Foundation, both of which poured money into ACORN’s coffers. ACORN head Maude Hurd gushes that Obama is the candidate who “best understands and can affect change on the issues ACORN cares about” — like ensuring their massive pipeline to your hard-earned money.”

 “Last July, ACORN settled the largest case of voter fraud in the history of Washington State. Seven ACORN workers had submitted nearly 2,000 bogus voter registration forms. According to case records, they flipped through phone books for names to use on the forms, including “Leon Spinks,” “Frekkie Magoal” and “Fruto Boy Crispila.” Three ACORN election hoaxers pleaded guilty in October. A King County prosecutor called ACORN’s criminal sabotage “an act of vandalism upon the voter rolls.””

“The Wall Street Journal noted: “In Ohio in 2004, a worker for one affiliate was given crack cocaine in exchange for fraudulent registrations that included underage voters, dead voters and pillars of the community named Mary Poppins, Dick Tracy and Jive Turkey.

“Where does the candidate of Hope and Change — the candidate of Reform and New Politics — stand on the issue? Barack Obama, ACORN’s senator, is for more of the same old, same old subsidizing of far-left politics in the name of fighting for the poor while enriching ideological cronies. It’s the Chicago way.”

McCain and Obama face questions about faith, Rick Warren, Saddleback Church, Obama and Christian life, Obama the Muslim, Islam background, Islam agenda, Obama a Political Christian, Fair weather Christian, Obama studied Koran, Obama has lied to America

“And it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigraant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment, as a way to explain their frustrations.”
Barack Obama

“A light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come
down upon you, you will experience an Epiphany…and you will
suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama.”
Barack Obama (Obama the Messiah)

“No, no, no Not God Bless America, God damn America.”
Jeremiah Wright

John McCain and Barack Obama will be asked questions about their
faith tonight at Saddleback Church. Pastor Rick Warren will ask
the questions. Here are facts regarding Obama’s religious background.
The real Religion of Barack Obama

The following quotes are from the book “The Obama Nation” by Jerome Corsi unless otherwise stated:

What Obama has stated about his religion

Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign website has a page devoted to proving “Obama has never been a Muslim, and is a committed Christian.”

“Barack Obama is not and never has been a Muslim,”

“Obama never prayed in a Mosque. He has never been a Muslim, was not
raised a Muslim, and is a committed Christian who attends the United
Church of Christ.”
Obama’s Muslim background

“Obama did attend a government run public school in Indonesia and he
did receive Islamic instruction, including study of the Koran.”
“Out of the blue, Obama clearly states , “In Indonesia, I has spent
two years`at a Muslim school and two years at a Catholic school.””
“”In the Catholic school, when it came time to pray, I would pretend
to close my eyes , then peek around the the room. Nothing happened.
No angels descended. Just a parched old nun and thirty brown children, muttering words.””

“Tine Hahiyary afirmed that barry Soetoro had been registered as a
Muslim and actively took part in the Islamic religious lessons.
“I remembered that Barry studied ‘Mengaji’ ” she told reporters.
Mengaji involves recitation of the Koran, a clear indication Barry did more than just “play” at being Muslim while he attended the public
school.”
“When the muezzin sounded the call to prayer, Adi remembered seeing
Lolo and Barry walk together to the makeshift mosque. “His mother
often went to church,” Adi told the Times, “but Barry was a Muslim.
I remember him wearing a sarong.””

 

“He too recalled Barry coming to the prayer room wearing a sarong.
He told Pakota that Obama was “quite religious in Islam, but after
marrying Michelle, he changed his religion.””
“Researching thoroughly the many news investigative reports done on
Obama’s Muslim background by the mainstream media in 2007, we even
find confirmation there from Obama’s sister that he was Muslim in
Indonesia. “My whole family was Muslim,” Maya Soetoro-Ng told the
New York times when interviewed about her early days in Indonesia.
“Most of the people I knew were Muslim.””

 

“The study of Islam was made mandatory in all Indonesian educational
institutions in the country, including pre primary schools. All
students were required to increase their study of Islam to 4 lessons
a week, some 10 percent of the curriculum, elevating the study of
Islam “to the most important subject in the school curriculum.””

 

How and why Obama joined TUCC

 

“In “The Audacity of Hope”, Obama reveals that a key factor in his
decision to join Trinity was, somewhat oddly, that he did not
necessarily have to be a believer.”

 

“In clear and direct terms, Obama said his decision to become a
Christian “came about as a choice and not an epiphany.””
“Kellman’s explanation of Obama’s conversion was pure Alinsky–
community social change is the end, faith is the  means. Clearly, for
Kellman and Obama, the ultimate political goal has always remained
the same–to redistribute power and wealth from the haves to the
havenots, as openly articulated by Alinsky at the very beginning of
“Rules for Radicals.” Kellman now pursues the goal through the
church, while Obama pursues the goal through politics.”

 

“Now add one more factor: before Obama’s baptism at trinity, when he
was nearly thirty years old, there is no other life incident
evidencing he is a Christian. Obama had to know that running for political office, even state office, would be much more difficult to do if voters suspected he was Muslim.”
“Yet once Obama became a member of trinity, he had proof he was a
Christian, as he professed to be.”

 

TUCC and black liberation theology
“Deciding to be baptized in Trinity United Church of Christ, Barack
Obama had to comprehend he was joining a church whose principles
were based on the black liberation theology Reverend Wright professes.
If Obama was smart enough to get a Harvard law degree, he was smart enough to understand Trinity Church was and is a black liberation
theology church.”
“However, Obama joined up with Wright and Trinity precisely because
Wright’s outspoken profession of black liberation theology matched
the radical political ideology Obama himself profesed as a direct
result of the lessons he had learned from his life experience.”
“Put simply, black liberation theology reinterprets the biblical history
and teachings of Jesus Christ to advance a revolutionary racial
message.”
 
“Farrakhan was an anti-Semite.Unfortunately, there is justification for
this concern. In a televised interview with Reuters on October 4, 1995,
ten days before that year’s scheduled march, Farrakhan said, “Many of
the Jews that owned the homes, the apartments in the black community,
we considered them bloodsuckers because they took from our coumunity
and built their community but didn’t offer anything back to our
community. In a speech the previous year, Farrakhan had proclaimed,
“The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s
a good name. Hitler was a very great name.””
“”In 1995, along with other prominent black leaders such as Al Sharpton
and Barack Obama, Farrakhan helped lead the Million Man March on
Washington.””
“What exactly Wright and Farrakhan accomplished in their 1984 visit
to see Qaddafi in Libya has never been disclosed. Judging by the
history of the relationship between the Nation of Islam and Qaddafi,
we can safely speculate that at a minimum the meeting further affirmed
the anti-American views that Black Muslims and black-liberation
theology hold in comon with Libya.”
“Wright himself has acknowledged the explosive nature of his visit to
Libya, commenting that Obama’s “Jewish support will dry up quicker
than a snowball in hell” once his enemies learn of the 1984 trip he
made with Farrakhan.”

 

Why Obama left TUCC
“Obama needed a Christian church in order to succeed in Chicago
politics. He selected Trinity because it best matched his personal
and political feelings. Then he dumped the entire relationship when
it got in the way of his presidential ambitions.”
Obama’s actions and associations
“Obama recited for Kristof the opening lines of the Arabic call to
prayer. The opening lines of the Adhan, the Muslim call to prayer,
translated, read as follows, with each line repeated twice:

Allah is supreme! Allah is supreme!
Allah is supreme! Allah is supreme!
I witness there is no God but Allah.
I witness there is no God but Allah.
I witness that muhammad is his prophet…

Kristof said Obama recited the prayer “with a first rate accent.””

 

“We have to ask whether Obama, by supporting Odinga openly in Kenya,
lent his name also to endorse Odinga’s leftist politics and Odinga’s
alliance with radical Muslims pushing Islam in Kenya.”
“On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to
speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survive
late term labor induced abortions.”

 

““I suspect that Senator Obama’s after the fact defense of his votes against the Illinois bill were nothing more than political pandering for votes of the worst kind. Women can vote and a fetus can’t. It’s kind of like his statement that if he had been in the Senate when the Iraq war resolution was taken up he would have definitely voted against it. His words appear only to be, “Just Words”, words for political advantage.””
http://zachjonesishome.wordpress.com/2008/08/02/obama-would-evidently-throw-the-baby-out-with-the-bathwater/
“Although Odinga professes to be an Anglican Christian, concerns even
today continue to circulate, especially among Kenya’s Christian
leaders, that Odinga intends to pursue an undeclared radical Islamic
political agenda.”

 

“Jonsson (NY Sun) sees the recent events in Kenya as signaling the
resurgence of Islam in Kenya, a process likely to sped up now that
Odinga has forced himself into a power sharing arrangement with Kibaki.
He argues we are witnessing the growth of a leftist/Marxist alliance
with Islam that is striving, under the banner of “Change”, to spread
the growth of Islamic states worldwide. Jonsson also sees a direct tie
between the “Change” themes of the Obama presidential campaign in the
United States and the senator’s support of Odinga’a Islamic goals in
East Africa. “Real Change for Africa” was perhaps not coincidentally
the theme of Raila Odinga’s 2007 presidential campaign.”

 

Consider the Obama associations:

Jeremiah Wright
Louis Farrakhan
Raila Odinga
Tony Rezko
William Ayers
Lawrence Lessig (gay Jesus video)

Does this sound like a Christian life to you?

 

The reader of this article can decide for themselves whether or
not Obama has lived his life as a Christian. Deeds not just words.
God will be the ultimate judge.

However,
In the spirit of Jesus overturning the tables and running the
money changers out of the temple, we exercise righteous
indignation at Obama for invoking Christianity for his own purposes and not embracing it for the good of his fellow man.

 

Jerome Corsi has been persecuted for revealing the truth about Obama.

The Case Against Barack Obama, Dan Shomon, Robert Blackwell, David Freddoso, Killerspin, Illinois State Grants, Legal retainer, Money Laundering, LA Times article

One of the least reported aspects of Obama’s past and his ties to
corruption and dubious business associations is the Robert Blackwell
“legal retainer” in conjunction with Dan Shomon. The LA Times broke
this story back in April 2008. They referred to Dan Shomon as an
Obama campaign aide. This blog, Citizen Wells, dug deeper into the
role of Dan Shomon. Dan Shomon was actually Obama’s Campaign Manager
at one time and he was also  a lobbyist. Dan Shomon’s name is at
the top of an announcement of Robert Blackwell being on Governor
Rod Blagojevich’s team. Blagojevich was named often during the Tony
Rezko trial and has been the subject of a recall attempt in Illinois.
Robert Blackwell contacted this blog shortly after we presented
our article in April 2008.

David Freddoso has written a new book, “The Case Against Barack Obama.
Freddoso, to his credit, writes about the Dan Shomon connection. He
does not cover Shomon as well as this blog so we recommend that you
search on Shomon here and learn more. Here are some exerpts from
“The Case Against Barack Obama”:
“Perhaps the most surprising story about Barack obama and money is one that no one talks about at all.  It involves ping-pong.  it is the story of how state Senator Obama was paid more than $100,000 for legal work, then helped his client’s company get $320,000 in taxpayer grants. 
For some reason, only the Los Angeles Times has examined the story of Robert Blackwell Jr. and the government grants he received after he invested in Barack Obama.

Obama writes in The Audacity of Hope that after his failed congressional run in 2000, he was “more or less broke.”  His family would make $240,000 that year, but they had large debts, and he had just loaned his losing campaign $9,500 and maxed out his credit card.  To keep his family afloat, he writes, he went back after the election to his law firm, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, which he had neglected throughout 2000 (he received no income from the firm that year).  He planned to do some legal work to supplement his modest $58,000 salary as a state senator.

In 2001, while serving as a state senator, Obama would earn $98,158 from his law practice.  Of that money, $80,000 came from a single client – Electronic Knowledge Interchange (EKI)-which had put him on a $8,000 monthly retainer.  This lasted fourteen months and netted Obama $112,000.  The company was owned by one Robert Blackwell Jr., a friend of Obama’s since about 1995.

Months after Obama received his final payment from EKI, he wrote a request on Illinois Senate letterhead and sent it to state officials for a $50,000 tourism grant to a company named Killerspin. This company was also owned by Blackwell.

Killerspin runs ping-pong tournaments and sells ping-pong gear.  After Obama’s original request, Killerspin received a $20,000 grant for a ping-pong tournament.  Over the next three years, Obama’s aide Dan Shoman-who was working for the senator part-time and part-time for Blackwell-would help Killerspin get a $200,000 state grant for its 2003 tournament and a $100,000 state grant for its 2004 tournament, for a total of $320,000.

So Blackwell’s company paid Senator Obama a large sum of money.  Blackwell’s other company received almost three times as much in state grants, with help from Obama and his aide.

The Times reports that Obama, in his required legal financial disclosures, buried his six-figure financial conflict of interest amid a list of hundreds of other clients represented by his law firm.  He did not mention that the majority of his 2001 income came from EKI-nor was he required to do so under Illinois law.  Moreover, the Times piece notes:

The business arrived at an especially fortuitious time because, as the law firm’s senior partner, Judson Miner, put it, “it was a very dry period here,” meaning that the ebb and flow of cases left little work for Obama and cash was tight.”

This corruption connection is listed on the Petition to Impeach, expel Senator Obama:
