Watchdog Groups Single Out Chamber Of Commerce For Role In Funding Controversy

October 14, 2010 by  

Watchdog groups single out Chamber of Commerce for role in funding controversyFollowing allegations that the United States Chamber of Commerce has been actively soliciting money from foreign countries to influence American elections, a group of watchdog organizations had called for a criminal investigation and complete audit of the business lobbying group.

StopTheChamber.com has urged the FBI, Department of Justice and IRS to examine the most recent accusation made by the Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAPAF) against the Chamber. The CAPAF claimed on Oct. 5 that the Chamber has obtained money from foreign organizations, including some funds tied to overseas governments, and has used it to influence political campaigns.

On Oct. 7, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs publicly asked the Chamber and other politically active groups to reveal their list of donors before the November midterm elections. According to the Huffington Post, it was the second request in as many days from Gibbs.

"I think the best thing to do for the American people would be to let everyone see all of the supporters. Let everyone see who has supported each of the different entities… by letting the American people know exactly who has written checks," said Gibbs, according to the news source.

According to The Associated Press, Chamber spokeswoman Tita Freeman said the claims are "unfounded, deceitful and completely erroneous." She added that no foreign money has been used to fund political activities.

    Keep it simple and keep it fair, people. If the Chamber of Commerce needs to be investigated, then so does Herr Obummer. Fair is fair, or it’s a frickin’ crock of crap.

    • eddie47d

      SC, You’ve been investigating Obama for 2 years now so to be fair how about reveling all your dirty little secrets. We’ll throw the Chamber in there for good measure.

      • s c

        There you go again, Eduardo. Chicago will be the world’s headquarters for integrity and accountability before we get a fair shot at your prez being investigated for anything.
        Get this straight, Einstein, as long as we’re stuck with a shady AG (whose track record includes freeing Puerto Rican terrorists) and Queen Nancy (who’s busy blocking anything and everything that might make Herr Obummer look bad), we’ve got better odds getting specific details from the KGB. Once again, you don’t know what the @#^^ you’re talking about.

        • eddie47d

          Einstein?, Hey you are improving! At least it was funny,(sort of).

  • DANNY

    As a donating member of the Chamber of Commerce and an American citizen, fair is fair. I would be very glad to have full disclosure of the Chamber as long as Obama has full disclosure of his citizenship and right to be our president. What a farce this administration has pulled over us. How much longer do we take this crap? Don’t forget to make “change” happen this November. Vote and encourage everyone you know to vote like there is no tommorow because unless we do, our days as a free country may be numbered.

  • Warrior

    Full disclosure on all sides? That’s something I can support.

    • Robert S

      They’ll have an investigation. Sure. They’ll stack the committee with their cronies and it will be another whitewash.

      • Warrior

        Well the committee thing will just have to wait. Feinberg is a little busy making sure the $20 mil BP fund is being re-distributed to the right recipients.

        • Christy

          Exactly. I suspect the BP fund immediately became the Democratic Party’s slush fund. Apparently, BP is still issuing checks direct, without touching the fund established. We will never know where this money goes, who withdrew the money or how it was used. Whenever we have an American President go after The Chamber of Commerce that represents the 70% of small businesses in this Country should not be treated like an enemy of the State. In addition, Small Businesses create 80% of all jobs in this Country. It’s great we have a President who is anti-jobs, anti-business. Our Country’s heritage is hanging on by a thread. My Father fought in WWII and was made sure myself and two brothers knew why there was a war and why he fought for it and wanted to make sure we never had to go through the same thing. Now, here we are facing a fundamental change based on income redistribution, all directed by Saul Alinsky’s guidelines. I could only feel sad last night watching the pictures of the Chilean miners being greeted by their President and First Lady with some of the kindest words I’ve heard in a long time. The chants coming from the spectators, flags waiving in the air, Yells of patriotism, and hugs from miners and their President made me realize we have lost a lot of our patriotism,only because we are dogged for it and targeted for doing it. I want back what I watched last night. I don’t want to lose our freedoms. I, for one, am doing whatever I can to stop the socialist takeover. It’s time to pray and pray hard. I want everyone to have a chance to have a job and be able to feed their family. Please everyone, pray, donate food to your food banks, call places like the Salvation Army, Disabled Vets, etc, and see what they need. If you are low on funds like me, you can always donate clothing, furniture. We must depend on each other to get through this mess. I will accept nothing less than total change of the change we have been subjected to. When it comes to BP, we can only hope that an honest person will come forward and let America know what happens to that money. We are so lucky to be Americans. Let’s band together and make sure we stay free Americans.

          • judy

            Excellent, thank you.
            Obama won’t even release donors for his bought election. Let’s start there.

      • Fascists Suck.

        The Bush stacked Supreme Court is to blame for destroying campaign finance disclosure laws. Essential to the proper functioning of a democracy and in place throughout the western industrialized world the Bush boneheads threw them out.

        What were they trying to do?
        What are you fascist freaks trying to hide? An investigation of the Chamber of Commerce may shed a little light.

        • s c

          FS, SCREW Democracy, and SCREW fascists who want us to think they’re not fascists. America is supposed to be a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.
          And, SCREW everyone who has no use for the Constitution or freedom. Mutatis mutandis, we will no longer have fascists or progressives in America.

          • Fascists Suck

            You are the fascist stupid, and you are using your unelected, appointed silverspooned asshat Supreme Court judges to keep the US public down and oppressed. You don’t give a ra about the Constitution – you want the rich and powerful merchants of death in the mic to rule.

You know how these young people are these days. Many of them don’t even know what is going on in their own homes, let alone the nation. Just another person that sounds like a sheeple. Bush, baaaaa! Chaaaaange! Let’s she what he/she says after the elections next month. Oh, by the way, the states that are opposing Obama bin Laden care are now allowed to go to court says a federal judge. The date is December 16. Let’s see what happens! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • Joyce from Loris

    Boo Hoo. We have been asking to see Obama’s birth certificate, passport papers, college papers, etc. for two years, with no response.

    • momo

      If there was a response then you would know the truth, we can’t have that can we?

  • Donald

    If the Birthers were shown a copy of Obama’s birth certificate and it showed he was born in Hawaii, they would claim it wass a forgery. So what’s the use.

    • ValDM

      It would BE a forgery. THAT’S the point. What about all the other docs that he has sealed? How did he travel in the 80′s to a country that Americans were forbidden to travel to? What passport did he use? Where are his records from school? WHY are all these docs sealed? Donald, get a brain. HE DOES NOT BELONG IN THE WHITE HOUSE!

      • Fascists Suck.

        He’s the best President the USA has had in decades. And far better than the people you freaks support.

        • Warrior

          What? Did class get out early today?

          • Fascists Suck

            So fascist freak, tell us why electing “war as economic policy” fascist Republicans will be good for the USA? And tell us why will it be good for the world? And tell us why the people of the USA shouldn’t be able to know who is trying to buy elections? And do explain why the Bush stacked Supreme Court struck the law down? Well, that one is obvious… the party of big moneyed interests wants to insure that big money can control the American political system.

          • Fascists Really Suck

            So Warmonger, tell us why electing “war as economic policy” fascist Republicans will be good for the USA? And tell us why will it be good for the world? And tell us why the people of the USA shouldn’t be able to know who is trying to buy elections? And do explain why the Bush stacked Supreme Court struck the law down? Well, that one is obvious… the party of big moneyed interests wants to insure that big money can control the American political system.

          • http://naver samurai

            Fascists, did you really have to say it twice? If you think the GOP are a bunch of fascists, what do you think about the lib marxists we have in office now? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • http://naver samurai

          You must be high on drugs or something. If you think Bush is anything like Hitler or his cronies, you are in some dire need to go back to school and reread your world history. Preferrably one that is politically incorrect. Obama bin Laden is more like Hitler and/or Stalin than Bush ever was. Clear cut case of cranial retumitis! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Fascists Suck

            Get a clue. Bush was very much like Hitler. He was into scapegoating, law and order and prisons to maintain social cohesion, militarism, and the biggy: war as economic policy.

          • http://naver samurai

            And Obama bin Laden is about the same, isn’t he? Didn’t he extend these wars? Yes he is into prisons, but just filling them with terrorist and not political opponents. How about Obama bin Laden sending his version of the Gestapo (SEIU and other union thugs) to intimidate and physically attack people that are against him and his policies? How about Obama bin Laden being anti Israel and anti Jew? How about him strongarming his policies down our throats, though the people didn’t want them? How about Obama bin Laden being all for abortions and gays and reduction of population? How about Obama bin Laden trying his best to turn our country into a socialist state and maybe a muslim state (We know he thinks there are 57 states and not 50!)? How about Obama bin Laden extending many of Bush’s policies that you find so offensive? Why did he extend and increase the reach of the Patriot Act? Please understand the facts before you post. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • EricX

          Yea, it’s only taken Obama less than two years to ruin the country and divide us to a level not seen since the civil war!
          Yea, Obama… making Carter look better every day!
          Go away commie trash!

  • http://personalliberty.com RandyH

    If the demorats were ahead in the polls it wouldn’t be an issue. This is why reid was pushing so hard for the DISCLOSE act, trying to intimidate rebublican contibutors.

    • Fascists Suck

      American’s have a right to know who is trying to buy their elections and why. What are you fascist freaks afraid of?

      • s c

        Yeeeeehah, FS! What are those useful idiot, freakin’ space cadet, mammy jammer, pig sty, septic tank progressive fascists afraid of? Who’s trying to buy elections, and why would they dare to block the votes of people in uniform? You definitely rate a gold star today.

        • Fascists Suck

          You are the fascists, stupid. You are so !@#$#@ stupid, you don’t even know you are fascists.

          • s c

            FS, chill out. Take a pill. Chug some Kruel Ade. Like most fascists, you got off the topic, and started ranting. I get it, dude.
            However, your attitude is almost as bad as your awareness. Falling on your own sword is a lesson that should be learned but once in life. You, chum, will have to learn that lesson many times in this life. By the way, every thinking reader on this website knows you’re a fascist.

          • eddie47d

            sc; You make nonsensical rants every day. ad-nauseum, over and over with few meat and potatoes replies. You need to take your load of …. and truck it to the dump, LOL

          • http://naver samurai

            Whay don’t you tell us your version of a fascist and I’ll compare it to the real fascists in history (Hitler, Mussolini, etc) and see if it stacks up to them. There are, however, many lib marxist cowards and traitors in office now. However, many of them will be getting the boot next month. Edduh, talk about garbage mouth. I think that you are some of the few on this site (edduh, abnorm, hflushman, rob smith, etc.) that reall define that term.

            By the way, the federal court has ruled that the 20 states that filed an injunction against Obama bin Laden care can go to court on constitutional issues. This is a major victory for we patriots and WE THE PEOPLE! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • Vigilant

            Standard Encyclopedic Dictionary:

            fascism: A one-party system of government in which the individual is subordinated to the state and control is maintained by military force, secret police, rigid censorshhip and governmental regimentation of industry and finance.

            This definition sure sounds like it much more closely approximates the aims of this government than anything the conservatives are advocating.

          • http://naver samurai

            You are so right, Vigilant. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          • eddie47d

            Vigilant; The radicals of the 60′s said the exact same thing. The police state threat back then was just as great and I would say even greater.(police brutality was well known). In total context there is no police state and it’s still in left wing and right wing’s dreams.

          • EricX

            Fascists Suck is a Communist and doesn’t like the competition from fascists.
            He sees everyone who isn’t a leftist Marx-loving socialist as a fascist.
            Hell, I’m a Libertarian and he thinks I’m a fascist, LMAO!
            Just read his replies below… the retard can’t debate and has no clue what the hell he is talking about.
            Just ignore this (obvious) troll and he’ll die from lack of attention… or maybe run to a socialist utopia like North Korea where other like-minded brainwashed zombies enjoy the benefits of socialism.

      • http://naver samurai

        Oh, so you mean like how the dems and Al Gore tried to do in Florida, but only backfired on them? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

  • eddie47d

    OH great defenders of the Chamber of Commerce. There name sounds so official but I wonder what the real Chamber of Commerce thinks of them and there shenanigans.They are a powerful group and have influenced a lot of elections. They spent 144 million on elections in just 2009. On top of that they spent 44 million on lobbyists or to lobbyists. Another 50 million went to business groups to tell them how to think. They have been involved in tax law violations before. They have an organization called National Chamber Foundation and it’s suppose to be a charity group. Instead of going to charity the money went to lobbying efforts for political purposes. They used 18 million of this charities arm on that which is illegal. It sounds like they are a far more influential player in politics than Acorn.

    • Warrior

      Correct, Acorn can only contribute what the gov gives them to contribute. Unions, that a somewhat different story.

      • eddie47d

        With unions you know where the money is going and where it is coming from.Too many shadow groups donating to the Chamber and other 527′s ,and Lord knows where that money is coming from.

        • Vigilant

          Yeah, with unions we sure do know where it’s coming from: union menbers who are Democrats, Republicans and Independents. And we sure do know where it goes: to Democrats. It may not be illegal (although it should be), but it’s unethical as hell.

          • eddie47d

            Why would it be unethical if political donations are seperate from regular union dues.That’s the way it was in our union.

  • cj

    Obama Hussein should have been required a long time ago to submit where he got his funding from – - but – - – that never happened. Everyone has talked about it and can almost prove it but Obama will never disclose the docs that so many millions of Americans have asked for. His ‘overseas’ contributions are enormous and scary. His accountability is disgusting and the ones in the white house that are covering it up are just as guilty. The Chamber has been a solid business entity in the USA for years, and has helped countless businesses get started and stay in business – - – as for Obama – - -
    the polls speak for themselves. He is not pro business or even pro American. If the Chamber has to fess up then Obama has to also.
    I bet the whole thing will be dropped.

  • Jim W.

    We can audit the Chamber rIght after we complete an audit of Obama and the DNC. I would remind you that Clinton and the DNC took Chinese money and that Obama took Palestinian and Arab money to support his election. This is another one of the Democrats charges that need no proof, but the seriousness of the charge mean we are all supposed to react against whoever they lie about. I say BULL, Obama and the Democrats are now and and have proven themselves to be serial liars. Audit them instead. Mr. Obama has proven time and time again he is anti-business and he hates the chamber because they refuse to be bullied by him.

    • eddie47d

      Are you going to tell me there is no Israel lobby who influences American politics?The Chamber has already got caught with their pants down. So what do you call Republicans who lie? Any terms of endearment for them?Should we disband the unscrupulous Chamber like Republicans did to Acorn? Does politics always have to have a double standard?

  • John and June Larsen

    It’s too bad that the financial contributors to Obama [et al] weren’t as widely sought after as the conservative funders!!
    Have you ever noticed that the Progressive/Liberals when they campaign for anything talk about their opponents flaws; when in reality, if one studies the voting records of all Progressive/Liberals; they are really telling us what THEY have done, what THEY are doing, and what THEY will do if/when elected!!!
    It’s time to recycle ALL progressive/liberal politicians,, et al – no matter what party they belong to!!!!!

    All I read are the rants of an uninformed idiot..a typical moron Democrat Obama Kool aid drinking fool.

    Forget about Obama eligibility, be concerned about what he has done since taking office and what he might do in the future. We have to elect people who will oppose his socialist-progressive programs to turn the United States into a third or forth world country.

    • Fascists Suck

      Yes stupid, I do know what a fascist is. And unlike a fascist repugtard moron like you, I also know how to spell the word “fascist.”

      The last thing the US needs is another fascist war as “economic policy” government like it had with the Bush PNAC crowd.

      • EricX

        Hmmmm….
        “Fourteen Defining Characteristics Of Fascism” as defined by Dr. Lawrence Britt (google it)
        “1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.”
        How about that logo? Ominously displayed like the Swastika was in 1930′s Germany under… hmmm… another National Socialist.
        “3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.”
        Glen Beck is evil, FOX news is evil, TEA party attendees are all racists, anyone who disagrees with us is a racist, listen only to OUR news agencies… hear about Obama’s Nixonesque “ENEMIES LIST” yet?
        “6. Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.”
        See above.
        “8. Religion and Government are Intertwined – Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government’s policies or actions.”
        Yea, maybe you should do some research yourself on this (see “Black Theology” and watch how the Progressives are now using religion to attempt to dupe the religious into following their beliefs. Shameful!
        “9. Corporate Power is Protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.”
        So why are Fanny & Freddy protected? Why are AIG and other Obama donator corps protected? Why are the thuggish unions like AFL-CIO, SEIU and other Big Labor protected?
        “13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.”
        Bwahahhahaaaa… the Chicago way!
        “14. Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.”
        See: New Black Panther Party and ACORN

        True, there are more characteristics in common with SOCIALISM and COMMUNISM but there are those National Socialist-like traits of FASCISM solidly and staunchly present in this fraud’s administration as well as the whole Progressive movement.
        Now quit blaming Bush… he’s been gone nearly 2 years and Progressives have been in charge (called Congress in a Republic if you didn’t study civics) for nearly 4 years… which… is… hmmm… about when this downturn started. Hmmmmm.

        • eddie47d

          We could change just a couple of words in your rant and it would fit the Republicans to a tee. At first I thought you were describing them.

          • EricX

            Progressive Republicans… Progressive Democrats… ALL THE SAME!
            That’s why the TEA party came about.
            Conservatives, NOT the CINO/RINO (Conservatives/Republicans In Name Only)… true Conservatives in the Reagan/Goldwater end (you might say Libertarian or at the least Constitutionalists) and even some Conservative/Libertarian Democrats make up the TEA party movement.
            FTR, the head of the TEA party rally in Greensboro NC was a Democrat.
            Point being, there’s not much distinction in “R” and “D” anymore. The Progressive movement has infiltrated BOTH parties… more-so on the left (Dem’s) but equally as damaging on the right.
            I’m a Libertarian in beliefs (like most of my Democrat friends) but sadly, we both wind up voting for what we feel is the “lesser of two evils”.

            BTW, want to end the 2-party monopoly?
            Allow TWO choices when voting, highest count wins!

I don’t know if you are a lib, but I do know that you make yourself out to be a crazed moron. You keep trowing that word NAZI around, but you really don’t know what it means. Come to my hometown and I’ll have you meet someone with a I.D. number from a concentration camp on his left arm. He got it when he was a child and grew up with it.

        Hey, here’s a clue… Government does NOT create jobs or revenue, it is a parasite on the free market. All “O” has done is grow government and debt at a rate that made the last administration (pre-Pelosi-Reid reign) look like a bunch of misers!
        “O” and his progressive allies are well on their way in their efforts to destroy this nation!
        OBAMA = One Big Assed Mistake America!

          “Hermann Göring bragged publicly that the communist danger was eliminated. Because all communists who weren’t already under lock and key because of their crimes, were now sitting behind the barbed wire of the newly established concentration camps.”

          “As a Christian I should have and must have known that from each of these fellow human beings — be they called Communists or whatever — God in Jesus Christ was asking me whether I would serve him. And I refused this service.”

          There is no free market. There is a sphere of economic activity controlled by the super-rich and a sphere of economic activity controlled by what are often repressive government functionaries. However, they often act at the behest of the former – producing things like billion dollar bank bailouts and wars half way around the world while allowing foreclosure rates to rise ever higher and homelessness to grow.

            So this is why there are people living in tents around Atlanta because of democrat party politics? And from where I’m sitting, I see that this president is the one giving bailouts to companies. Many big businesses that were either controlled or sponsored by the democrats have gone bankrupt, are far in debt, and are responsible for the economy of America being what it is today. For the economy to get back to the good side, let’s have the government keep its hand off of small businesses. Why should the “heart and soul” of America’s economy be paralyzed by government regulation and control over every aspest of their lives? You seem to be another person on this site that isn’t worth answering, but I hope this answer helps you figure things out. Thank you.

        I don’t know what you have been smoking, but I think it’s about time to stop. Remember this as far as the average American these days:

        “Once we had Ronald Reagan, Bob Hope, and Johnny Cash. Now we have Obama bin Laden, no hope, and no cash.”

        This saying is so true for many people these days. Let’s keep up the good fight, fellow patriots! Take no lib prisoners, like Obama bin Laden rocks, and knock them all out of this country. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

          An appeal to patriotism, the last refuge of scoundrels. Hitler made constant appeals to it too.

          • http://naver samurai

            Patriotism seems to be something you are lacking at this time. Go haunt another site with your BS. I hear there is plenty of space at Huffington Post. Why don’t you go there or you can always go back to reading about your hero Saul Alinsky. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

      Lawrence, we have some new fascist ‘swiners’ on the website today. An easy way to describe fascism is ‘a government that is in bed with corporations.’ To use WWII Italy as a prime example, when we can’t tell the difference between a government and a corporation, we absolutely have fascism. That point is always wasted on progressives and their fascist brothers and sisters. This is what happens when they insist on living in denial.
      In fact, what we have now is a government that is in bed with corporations, a prez who uses unions to cement the incestuous relationship between a government and fascism, and STILL some twit fascists and progressives just don’t get it.
      And they dare to wonder why conservatives get sick and tired of reminding fascists and progressives and pointing out what should be obvious to anyone who has a nickel’s worth of integrity and common sense. In effect, it almost raises the strange outdoor sport of whizzing up a tree to a fine art.
      You’d think fascists and progressives would get tired of being wet all the time.

      • Fascists Suck

        Keep yapping Goebbels. Everyone who knows anything knows the nazis were a rightwing Conservative movement, and much more akin to the Republicans and Teabaggers than the Democrats and Liberals or Socialists.

          “Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.” –Saul Alinsky, “Rules For Radicals”

          Yea, that’s it, use insults and sexually derogatory terms like “teabagger” to make your (sic) “point”.
          Say genius, know what “NAZI” is short for?
          “National SOCIALIST” and they too had a ton of government work programs, government takeover of industry, redistribution of wealth (at least for those not in the party’s inner circle), socialized medicine and welfare/work programs.
          Say, Hitler even took over the banks and automotive industry… hmmmmm.
          And while we are looking back at mid-20th century history with an ominous feeling this has happened before, there was a rally Hitler held in Munich in 1936 where the whole frantic crowd was chanting “JA KONNEN WIR!!!”
          Know what that translates to in English?
          There is great comfort in ignorance.
          Back to your Kool-Aid.

          • Fascists Suck

            I haven’t read “Rules For Radicals” and can’t think of any reason to. I have read PNAC documents, and this little gem http://www.hitler.org/writings/Mein_Kampf/Mein Kamf and a host of other fascist writings.

            Use insults and sexually derogatory terms like “teabagger” to make your (sic) (improper use of “sic” noted) “point”. Why not? You shit for brains fascists do it all the time. And I could have done worse.

            Yes genius, I know what the title of nazi movement was, and I know they were as far from socialist as you could get. They were not members of the socialist or communist internationals and they were anything but opponents of capitalism as socialists and communists are. In fact, they were loved and funded by capitalists. Did you know that genius?

            “Hitler even took over the banks and automotive industry… hmmmmm.”

            Liar.

            The essence of fascism was militarism and war as economic policy. Which political party in the US emulates that?

    The Chamber needs to say, “We’ll show you our books when you show us your birth certificate!”
    Yea, at least the Chamber can produce their original charter.
    But that’s ok… what does the Constitution mean to the progressives anyway?
    Hey, since we’re investigating political donors… let’s find the source of all those pre-paid debit cards used to send MILLIONS to the obama campaign in 08!
    Yea, do the progressives REALLY want to open that can of worms?

    • eddie47d

      EricX you are one big assed sore loser with a lot of arrogance thrown on top of it.

      • EricX

        Can’t debate the issues can you? No, just throw a bunch of insults and accusations out there.
        Awwww… c’mon, no sexual innuendo names thrown in? At least that Rachael Maddow fella uses the derogatory “Teabagger” term with a cocky and arrogant smirk.
        Lemme guess, Progressive Democrat?

        • Fascists Suck

          Do you support wars beyond national borders? Do you support more prisons and incarcerations?

          You are an a Libertarian like Raygun was a Marxist, you fascist pos.

          The 14 points of fascism describe the Republican party under Bush-Cheney to a tee and you tried posting the points and adding your idiot comments to try and make it look like they apply to the Democrats.

            Way too much kool aid on a daily basis.

  • chuck b

    did bill clinton and al gore show their books when they were caught red handed accepting money from communist china?? the only difference is the republicans are wimps, they should tell the demos to shove it and go on their way, instead wimpy karl rove will spend all his time on the talk shows trying to defend against the accusatons, if not he will se out knocking any conservative that had the audascity to knock out one of the rino’s . even if we win we lose.

    Ob Ro, adults are in charge, of what, the monkey cage washing detail? This purple lipped, jug eared, muslim, moron might be chronicle aged as a adult, but has the mental grasp of reality, of about a mentally challenged 12 year old. He is a spoilt, self centered, play ground, pusified brat. He either was weaned too early, or was sent to a madasses with out his favorite blow up Barney doll. Worst case, muslim males consider young boys playtoys, before the age 10. If he was a calf, I would say he was neutored, just after being born. The boys can be used like a whore by any muslim male family members. Something in his past has turned him into a perv and a flaky bastard who hates the USA. HIs family was a bunch of odd ball, slutty, marxist, communist, muslim freaks. The loony tune idoits didn’t save anything except make more people more dependant on government aide. Dems like welfare checks way more so than pay checks!
