OFA Obama Policy Blitz Scheduled For August

0 Shares

ofa0719President Barack Obama’s campaign-organization-turned-personal-agenda-juggernaut, Organizing for Action, is set to spend August attacking American citizens and lawmakers who dare question the President’s climate change beliefs, his healthcare overhaul effort, immigration reform or readily available abortion.

In an email, OFA encouraged supporters to support “Action August” by demonizing lawmakers and Americans who disagree with the President. The main targets, according to the email, are people who tell Obamacare “lies,” “climate deniers” who resist global warming rules and foes of immigration reform and abortion.

The President’s agenda-pushers have set aside the following days of action for August:

  • Aug. 4: Obamacare Day of Action.
  • Aug. 5: Comprehensive Immigration Reform Day of Action.
  • Aug. 13: Climate Change Day of Action.
  • Aug. 21: Gun Violence Prevention Day of Action.
  • Aug. 31: Comprehensive Immigration Reform Day of Action.

The organizers say the month provides an opportunity to speak directly with lawmakers during summer recess, to encourage compliance with Obama efforts.

“While lawmakers are home for congressional recess, thousands of supporters will be holding events in key districts across the country,” the email says.

“It’s all about making sure members of Congress hear directly from the people they represent, on the issues that matter to all of us.”

The email continues, advising supporters who they should target:

OFA supporters will be telling the truth about Obamacare, fighting the outright lies about what health care reform means for ordinary Americans.

We’ll be calling out the climate deniers who are standing in the way of progress in Washington, and make sure the senators who hold the key votes on gun violence prevention hear from the people who sent them to Congress.

And we’ll be fighting attacks on a woman’s health choices wherever they pop up.

OFA, a section 501(c)(4) tax-exempt organization, raises and spends money to support Obama’s policy agenda. In its latest financial reports, the organization reported raising $8.2 million in funding for the second quarter of 2012.

“In just our second quarter, OFA more than doubled the number of donors that have stepped up and taken ownership of the future of this organization,” an OFA official said in a statement. “98 percent of OFA’s contributors have been from small dollar donations with an average contribution of $55 making this truly a grassroots funded operation.”

Huffington Post offers a look at who OFA’s major donors are:

The biggest contributors in the second quarter were well-known Democratic donors, many of whom previously gave to Priorities USA Action, the super PAC backing Obama’s reelection. Fred Eychaner, CEO of Newsweb and one of the biggest Obama super PAC donors of 2012, gave $500,000 to OFA, as did hedge fund founder David Shaw, another Obama super PAC donor. Environmental activist and New York real estate heiress Amy Goldman gave $250,000. OFA’s other six-figure donors included Diamond Resorts’ Stephen Cloobeck, McAfee’s Kenneth Levine, liberal philanthropists William and Judith Scheide, and LGBT activist Jon Stryker.

For conservatives, August looks like it could be a very irritating month as they face a well-funded liberal policy blitzkrieg that is sure to be heralded by the mainstream media in ways of which Tea Party activists could only dream.

    Do not dare to disagree with this bombastic imbecile, he will unleash on you so much fire and brimstone that you will finally welcome slavery and if you survive his pathetic reign as emperor, you will NOT survive Hilary, so get used to it. They are coming to get you, so take care and good luck.

    Correction for the editors – the title says OCTOBER – the article says AUGUST.

  • Robbie

    The President is merely promoting his policies and vision for the country. I think other Presidents have done this in the past. No?

    • 27GRIZ

      griz sez ”Yes , people seek this position to promote a certain idea or policy —and that’s as it should be ” A leader is supposed to ‘lead. In my 85 years —65 of which included interest in the political health of my country , I have never witnessed as disgusting a display of stupidity in our ”leaders” that compares with what we are burdened with today. Socialism has failed worldwide and these dreamers would have our people believe it can / will work here. And these one world gov’t nuts are sure our people will submit to this enslavement without a whimper. That’s where their basic stupidity comes in , Many common folks disagree ! ! ! Many of us went to war at age 17 , to avoid this very action. ENOUGH !
      Enough lies , slick talking , deceiving , fools in high places , corruption , et al. ”’ Past time for a REAL CHANGE > COMPLETE CHANGE ! !

      Robbie, it has happened, but this group won’t allow that anyone but Obama has ever used it to show what should be happening, They complain that if you oppose Obama, you will be “disappeared”, yet each and every one of them is still here and still talking.

      • Robbie

        I know. Most of the folks here are living in la la land. One of them once wrote that Obama had never been to Harvard because supposedly no one had ever heard of him but in the next sentence claimed that Obama never wrote anything when he was editor of the Harvard Law Review!

          ALSO WHEN HE WAS SWORN IN TO BE A CITIZEN HE SWORE ON THE BIBLE TO HONOR GOD. AND OUR COUNTRY. BUT SINCE HAS BROKEN BOTH THESE OATHS AND SHOULD REALLY LOSE HIS CITIZENSHIP. AND BE DEPORTED AS AN ILLEGAL HERE. NO?????????????????

          • Robbie

            What a nutty comment. Obama was NEVER sworn in to be a citizen. Did you make that up on your own?

        • Bill Sager

          Chester and Robbie you need to pull your heads out of Obama’s ass and see what is truly going on. The Obama kool-aid must be good stuff. Can’t fix Liberals/Stupid!

    • Michael Shreve

      NO, they did promote their “agenda” but did NOT impugn those with different opinions.

      • Robbie

        Yea right! A guy like Richard Nixon would never impugn anyone!!

  • wavesofgrain

    A president of the US assaulting the opposing views of its citizens. This alone, should not be allowed…should be sufficient reason to replace this diktator. This is nothing but a corrupt group of Political Party Community Organizers.

    • Orville Wilmot

      HE SHOULD BE TRIED FOR TREASON FOR LEAVING OUR BORDERS OPEN .IN VIOLATION OF OUR CONSTITUITION .IT STATES. THAT THEY MUST BE SECURED FROM ILLEGAL ENTRY

  • chylene6599

    It would be really sneaky if we pulled a “Turn-about-is-fair-play” on him, and at his rallys, made sure that there were hundreds and hundreds of men dressed up as Nazi “Brown Shirts” who shouted “Sieg Heil!” And saluted everytime he opened his mouth. (Remember Alinsky’s Ku Klux Klan trick? Or was that Obama?)

  • Orville Wilmot

    WHAT OBAMA SHOULD BE DOING IS INVESTING IN THE COAL COMPANIES .TO MAKE THEM BURN CLEAN . AS THIS WOULD PUT MANY PEOPLE TO WORK. AND IN THE END THE GOVERNMENT WOULD END UP GETTING IT ALL BACK. AND THEN SOME IT ALSO . IT WOULD ALSO DROP OUR DEMAND FOR OIL WAY DOWN. AND END UP LOWERING PRICES . AS WE HAVE MEGA COAL

  • placidly1

    Kristallnacht-only lasted 1 night. Leave it to Obama & his supporters… we will have to endure this propaganda blitz for entire month.

  • wandamurline

    Bring it on….we the people can fight back. Sorry, but am tired of turning the other cheek and accepting political correctness.

    • chris

      I think a lot of us are getting ready to fight back

  • Smee

    Only God can control the Climate! Obummer just can not grasp that idea!

  • Smee

    Every time I see that stupid grin on that baboons face, I just wanna stomp on my monitor!!!!!!

  • wavesofgrain

    He also has infested our public schools with political propaganda…and the Union Teachers are going right along with it. The students’ mission is to sell Obamacare to their friends, neighbors and parents. Our children are now being used as socialest agenda tools for the government.

  • Michael Shreve

    His objective is to DECRY the limitations imposed on government, and HIM, by the ANTIQUATED Bill of Rights and to chide the peons for DARING to question the power of their king.
