Report: The Obama Campaign Has Been Illegally Soliciting Foreign Donations - AgainTopics: Political News and commentaries
After reading Michelle Malkin's reprinting of a selection of her previous blog posts over the last four years that exposed various aspects of Obama's crooked campaign cash-o-matic machine, I've been awaiting with bated breath the Government Accountability Institute's release of it's blockbuster study on foreign donations in American politics ... and especially the 'cash-o-matic machine of the Obama campaign.
Bryan Preston sums up the Obama teams' shady Chicago-style gangster-type operation for us:
The study determined three key findings:Read the whole thing here. As Bryan goes on to aptly point out, we're on our third iteration of this foreign donation scandal for Barack Obama, and it's about to break into the top five scandals that should sink this president.
- The absence of the industry-standard CVV and unknown use of AVS anti-fraud security for online credit card donations.
- The presence of a branded, major third-party owned website (Obama.com) redirects its 68% foreign traffic to a campaign donation page.
- Active foreign solicition using indiscriminate email solicitations and exposure to social media.
The branded site, Obama.com, was created in Shanghai, China, by an Obama bundler, but its present registration information is hidden.
If this story seems like a re-run, that's because the Obama campaign also disabled the credit card verification system for online donations four years ago.
The Obama campaign had also disabled the credit card verification system this year, and was caught accepting donations from "Aunt Zeituni," Adolph Hitler" (occupation: dictator) and "Nidal Hasan." "Osama binladen" also donated back in April 2012.
To understand how this happens, click on the link to our post from April 2012. It's standard operating practice for online donation pages to include the CVV field, which a donor would use to fill in the code on the back of their credit card for security verification. As we demonstrated in that post, the Romney campaign's donation page included the CVV field, but Obama's did not.
That doesn't happen by accident. Having run an online donation page for a political party, I've been on the inside of this question. It's industry standard to include the CVV field; someone typically has to disable that field intentionally. Disabling the CVV field opens the donation page up to accepting money from foreign sources and from identity thieves who may have stolen credit card information from unsuspecting innocent parties.
