Suppressing Conservative Speech—Obama’s Campaign Bully Brigade Rides Again

Commentary by Jim Campbell
As usual a wonderful read, who would be a better conservative critic silence than Andrew Breitbart?  Don’t think Obama hasn’t been involved in stacking up dead bodies. See The Body Count, notably missing are the deaths of Choir director Donald Young and Larry Bland of Obama’s church , both were murdered execution style. Who would convict him when it’s so clear at least to him that he is untouchable. Do I believe that Obama would be involved in murder to keep his tyrannical reign of power?  Let’s stick with the old axiom, “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely,” and leave it there.  Readers will find the links below quite interesting.
Do I believe that the murders in the links above had anything to do with Obama?  Let’s leave it that I’m not a big believer in coincidence when hard ball is being played by politicians.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. ad I approve this message.

They’re baaaaaaack. Barack Obama’s election-year goon squad kicked into high gear this week by kicking the president’s fiercest opponents in the teeth and targeting their pocketbooks. Returning to bully business as usual,  the Obama campaign launched a brazen salvo against two prominent conservative critics and their legions of private citizen donors.

Let’s be clear (to use Obama’s favorite phrase): This is not just the politics of personal destruction. It’s a vendetta of campaign finance destruction. Under the guise of “disclosure,” Team Obama is exploiting the power of high government office to intimidate lawful, peaceful contributors who support limited-government causes.

In a scathing fundraising e-mail appeal, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina name-checked wealthy free-market philanthropists Charles and David Koch—along with a growing movement of grassroots conservatives who have freely, voluntarily and legally given money to the Koch-founded nonprofit activist group Americans for Prosperity and its sister foundation. As a speaker at several AFP events over the past three years, I’ve met thousands of like-minded, hardworking Americans who support their work at the local, state and federal levels.

The Kochs’ sins are to 1. follow tax law and protect the identities of donors to their charitable organizations, and 2. exercise their free speech by funding advocacy ads informing the public about the Obama administration’s jobs toll destruction and failed green energy “investments.” (Their most recent TV spot zeroed in on the taxpayer-funded Solyndra bankruptcy.)

“When you attempt to drown out (Americans’) voices through unlimited, secret contributions to pursue a special-interest agenda that conflicts with what’s best for our nation, you must expect some scrutiny of your actions,” Messina railed. The threat of scrutiny was backed by Obama himself, whose official campaign Twitter account directed 12 million-plus followers this week to “add your name to demand that the Koch brothers make their donors public.”

But Obama’s own former top officials run a so-called super PAC (Priorities USA) that also maintains nonprofit status and subsidizes advocacy ads while protecting its donor base. The White House, of course, is mum on the unlimited, secret contributions that Obama is now encouraging wealthy liberals and lobbyists to make in pursuit of his own special-interest agenda—i.e., re-election.

The president’s flapping lips are also sealed when it comes to applying his disclosure standards to the shadowy, George Soros-backed Center for American Progress, which has supplied the Obama administration with countless top policy staffers, including special Department of Health and Human Services assistant Michael Halle and HHS Director Jeanne Lambrew, a former senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. CAP founder John Podesta was Obama’s transition chief, overseeing the backroom process of rewarding friends and allies with plum positions. CAP flacks shrugged off conflict-of-interest questions: “We respect the privacy of supporters who have chosen not to make their donations public,”CAP spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri said.

As for respecting the privacy rights of Obama’s foes? Not so much.

It seems to me no small coincidence that this disclosure charade comes just as numerous tea party organizations are reporting that the Internal Revenue Service has targeted them for audits. According to Colleen Owens of the Richmond (Va.) Tea Party,several fiscal-conservative activist groups in Virginia, Hawaii, Ohio and Texas have received a spate of IRS letters. The missives demand extensive requests to identity volunteers, board members and … donors.

This is B.O.’s M.O. His bully brigade did the same to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its donors during the November 2010 midterms as payback for the organization’s ads opposing the federal health care takeover. And in 2008, Obama’s allies at a Soros-tied outfit sent out “warning” letters to 10,000 top GOP givers “hoping to create a chilling effect that will dry up contributions.” Witch hunt leader Tom Matzzie, formerly of Soros-funded, bragged of “going for the jugular” and said the warning letter was just the first step, “alerting donors who might be considering giving to right-wing groups to a variety of potential dangers, including legal trouble, public exposure and watchdog groups digging through their lives.”

Matzzie also advertised a $100,000 bounty for dirt on conservative political groups “to create a sense of scandal around the groups” and dissuade donors from giving money. The effort was cheered by Accountable America adviser Judd Legum, founder of Think Progress—the same group that led the attack on the Chamber of Commerce and is run by Podesta’s Center for American Progress. Just as with the Obama super PAC led by former White House officials, Matzzie’s group “Accountable America” was a 501(c)(4) nonprofit entity that shielded the identity of its donors.

Oh, and remember this? In 2008, St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch and St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, both Obama promoters, threatened to bring criminal libel charges against anyone who spread what they considered “false criticisms” of their Dear Leader.

It is no small exaggeration to conclude that Team Obama’s dead aim is to chill conservative speech and criminalize conservative dissent. All Americans for prosperity must push back with one voice: No, you can’t.

  1. you are right there Jim, lets not forget the policeman or the security guard that was shot the night the office was broken into when his records disappeared while they were vetting McCain. Yep his cronies have been busy since 1/09 taking care of whatever he wants taken care of.He likes to deal with things behind closed doors but it is coming to an end soon I think.

  2. I beleive there is nothing Obama won’t do to get his agenda going. He must be stopped. He is responisbility for many things and much of it illegal. It will come out sooner or later.

  3. I believe that Andrew Breitbart was murdered to protect obama….the method used? RICIN….just a small amount is needed but if a larger concentration was used it could be a very quick death. It can be injected. Andrew supposedly was taking amidnight walk when he had a heart attack. If this walk was a regular routine for him, others could have known!

    Obama will do whatever it takes to silence criticism and truth about him!

    • Damn, I stayed away from the ways he could have been killed, Your lead provides me with another idea. Thanks Jim.

      • And, what sickens me most is that all the so-called Conservative
        Commentators, both loca and national, are Afraid to say the obvious, and keep saying, “it was a heart attack and natural causes.” I will never believe this Offical Lie no more than I believe that Lee Harvey Oswald assassinated JFK. This was a warning shot from the Obama Regime that No Opposition Allowed. That is fascism at work. And the MSM, inclucing all Networks, whether they Identify as Liberal or Conservative, will not even discuss thie Obious Assassination. Even Andrew Breithbart’s co-workers are skirting the Obvious that Andrew Breitbart was assiassinated to shut him up.
        And, of course, all his co-workers are saying they will continue his mission, which is absolute nonsense. If I were to die, nobody could take my place as a teacher, because they do not have my passion and insights. The truth in the USA today will get you killed as a way of silencing you if they cannot do it with slander.

  4. Folks, we are at the point in our history, that if we want to educate and inform people, we are going to have to take to the streets at the local level. The media, government and Hollywood have made a concerted effort to make sure that all Americans, in spite of your political persuasion, stay totally in the dark and Free From Truth.

  5. I had NO Doubt what-so-ever.

    Your last statement is profound.
    “The truth in the USA today will get you killed as a way of silencing you if they cannot do it with slander.”
    I just sent that out viral “with your name & site as reference.

  6. Wake up America before you lose your freedom. Remember this: Barack Hussein Obama was a mentor as a young man and studied with Frank Marshall Davis. He was a communist:
