For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Obama Fundraising Suggests Massive Foreign Participation

In an October 7th editorial, IBD asks some very interesting questions about Obama's enormous haul of campaign donations received from sources unknown. And the MSM seems uninterested in investigating this matter.

An excerpt from IBD:

[Newsmax reported last week that Sen. Barack Obama's campaign has collected "the largest pool of unidentified money that has ever flooded into the U.S. election system, before or after the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reforms of 2002."

Federal Election Commission data show that some $222 million of the cash Obama has collected came in the form of contributions of $200 or less, with the Democratic nominee's campaign identifying the donors of less than $40 million of that sum.

Campaigns may accept donations of less than $200 without providing the donors' names and addresses in campaign finance reports, but Sen. John McCain's camp has made its full donor database available on the Internet. Independent campaign finance watchdog organizations have asked the Obama campaign to list all its donors, as well, but it's refused. What is Obama hiding?]

Read the rest of this juicy story HERE.

It feels rather frustrating to be so powerless in stopping someone from blatantly breaking rules, and watching them steal an election by seducing a sycophantic media and literally buying a victory. It seems that all we can do is sit back and watch it unfold until the election is swiped, because no one will be prosecuted before election day. And what happens after? What happens if these funds are proven to have been collected illegally? What if we find that Speaker Pelosi and former President Jimmy Carter traveled to the Middle East to, among other mischief, solicit donations from wealthy foreigners who hate America just to get Obama in power? Probably not much. The people who got elected will not ruin the lives of those who illegally supported them.

Is the story too enticing for the MSM to ignore? Most likely only to a point. According to IBD the main stream media is actually taking notice, but I doubt they will sacrifice their messiah anytime soon.

you do understand this is ther first time in recent history that republicans find themselves on the losing end of donations? convient considering that, if you believe obama to speak for the masses(people making less than 250 a yr) then 250 dollars is exactly what they could afford...attmepting to find something devious about that proves the desperation of the mccain's not like obama wrote the rules...

If you click on the link provided for the rest of the IBD story you will see that there are many reasons to suspect fraud in the Obama camp.

People can easily click on the internet with their credit cards but using assumed names and addresses in the ID section and no one gives it a second the Obama camp. If things are as you say (with all of your misspellings) then how come Obama refuses to release the names of those donors. Too many Mickey Mouses?
