Obama Taking Millions in Illegal Campaign Dollars

Barack Obama is smashing all Presidential campaign contribution records. CBS News says Obama has $164 million going into the last full month of campaigning. He claims all of the dollars are legitimate contributions from legal US citizens. Many people disagree, however. Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs, with very capable investigative teamwork from several others like Cathy, have evidence that Obama is lying about the sources of his campaign's wealth and he knows full well much of the loot is ill-gotten.

Sometime soon, Obama will exceed in dollars the number of people in the known universe, or at least, the number eligible to donate to a US Presidential campaign. Not all of the $200,000 per hour raised comes from the US and US citizens. The foreign monies appear as odd numbers of dollars and cents. Almost everyone will donate in whole numbers no matter what currency is used. But, when that currency is exchanged for another currency, odd numbers occur. With international banking being nearly instantaneous and anonymous, the campaign contributions can and do come from everywhere, including Gaza, and from anyone, including HAMAS and Hezbollah.

From Atlas Shrugs:

There is enormous amount of money being secreted into the Obama campaign from foreign sources. It is fairly safe to say these countries will be richly rewarded - Kenya, Indonesia but most of all - Obama will drop a load on the UN.

The crooked, corrupt international one world global warmers have the largest stake in this election.

Back on August 14th, I wrote that Julia Gorin told me a funny story. About four months ago. Her husband's co-worker wanted to see what would happen if he tried giving a contribution to the Obama campaign via a credit card. He used his Macy's card. The system accepted it. He tried the same with McCain's campaign, and the transaction wouldn't go through.

Atlas reader Craig submits to me the following,

I may have just uncovered how the Obama campaign is facilitating massive donation fraud.

I’ve read recent reports of the Obama campaign receiving donations from dubious names and foreign locales and it got me wondering; how is this possible?

I run a small internet business and when I process credit cards I’m required to make sure the name on the card exactly matches the name of the customer making the purchase. Also, the purchasers address must match that of the cardholders. If these don’t match, then the payment isn’t approved. Period. So how is it possible that the Obama campaign could receive donations from fictional people and places? Well, I decided to do a little experiment. I went to the Obama campaign website and entered the following:

Name: John Galt
Address: 1957 Ayn Rand Lane
City: Galts Gulch
State: CO
Zip: 99999

Then I checked the box next to $15 and entered my actual credit card number and expiration date (it didn’t ask for the 3-didgit code on the back of the card) and it took me to the next page and… “Your donation has been processed. Thank you for your generous gift.”

This simply should not, and could not, happen in any business or any campaign that is honestly trying to vet it’s donors. Also, I don’t see how this could possibly happen without the collusion of the credit card companies. They simply wouldn’t allow any business to process, potentially, hundreds of millions in credit card transactions where the name on the card doesn’t match the purchasers name.

Not unless Obama's campaign is warehousing donations (held back) and any that fail or are rejected by the credit card companies or for any other reason are covered by illegal donations.

In short, with the system set up as it is by the Obama camp, an individual could donate unlimited amounts of money by simply making up fake names and addresses. And Obama is doing his best to facilitate this fraud. This is truly scandalous.

Yes, and then cover them with illegal funds.

Sincerely,

Craig

PS I tried the exact same thing at the McCain site and it didn’t allow the transaction.

Pss I went back to the Obama site and made three additional donations using the names Osama Bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and Bill Ayers, all with different addresses. All the transactions went thru using the same credit card. I saved screen shots of the transactions if you want them.
Cathy found this at Free Republic [comment 13, alloysteel] :

Somebody, high up, has access to millions of credit card, and possibly debit card accounts. This is how it works: An apparent charge appears on your account, then through the correction process, it disappears. An unauthorized charge delivers the funds to control of an intermediary, and the intermediary then reimburses the original draft on the account. The intermediary is a wealthy consortium of manipulators, who take the small contribution (always less than $200, so as to avoid the reporting requirements of name and occupation of the original source), thus providing hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of “contributors”, and allowing ineligible contributors to cover up their participation. It would take the research of literally thousands of these accounts to uncover the pattern of “mistaken” charges, and if these accounts are held outside the US, there would be no overview of these transaction by any of the authorities that govern these transfers in this country. The only check on this is to review your own account, and those who had their accounts used in this manner. If individuals or corporate entities are already supporting Obama, or the Democrat National party, or any of the 527s that are anti-Republican, THEY are not going to say anything.

Atlas Shrugs has 37 posts categorized "Obama's Contributions: Foreign and Domestic in a handy section all delineated for easy access. It is by no means easy reading as it is mostly accounting numbers. But, remember, Al Capone was nailed by following the money.

The Old Stream Media is ignoring this story for now and perhaps forever. If they pick it up, Obama may already be in the White House and with the legislative aid of Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, may begin shutting down any organ that tries to expose the buying of the Presidency, the defrauding of the American people, and the rape of Liberty by Barack Hussein Obama in his quest for power.

I've read some of this at Atlas Shrugs, Indigo. I don't understand why at least Fox News hasn't gotten on this! It's unbelievable that we are a mere 13 days away from the election now, and we don't even know that Obama is a US citizen and he's taking illegal donations!

I'm so angry I could spit nails!

Gayle said...

By the way, I would post on this too but I don't have the time as I'm going to be away today. I have a post in draft that I'm going to put up now and I will be adding the title of your post and a link to it. People need to read this!

That's why I did this post, Gayle. Under 2 wks til we have a new President of the United States of America and we still don't know conclusively where Obama was even born. That's a simple thing. And the Chief Law Enforcement Officer is a crook and nobody cares but us chickens.

The financial problems are far more problematic. It's doubtful that anyone could do anything more than raise serious doubts about the contribution origination.

Fact is, though, Democrats don't want to hear about the illegalities. They want Bush gone, tried, convicted, and imprisoned. If there is damage along the way, they'll fix it later.

Indigo, I have absolutely no knowledge as to the reliability of the following site, nor do i have the time to vet it. That said, check this out.

I checked it out, OS. I don't know. At first blush and under normal circumstances, it would appear to be a typical conspiracy love fest, but now when the most absurd is the truth, these guys may be way behind the curve or way ahead of it.

I wil wait to see what pans out.
