Obama Hit Squad Targets Private Citizens

By GOPUSA Staff

And people said the Nixon administration was bad? Just take a look at what the Obama campaign is doing with their own "enemies" list. With a new web site, the Obama campaign is targeting private citizens -- those who have donated money to Mitt Romney's campaign -- and in one case, the attacks have hurt the person's business and reputation.

Businessman Frank Vandersloot, the CEO of Melaleuca, has been targeted by the Obama campaign after donating money to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. "Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, 'Keeping GOP Honest,' took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney," Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal reported. "Titled 'Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney's donors,' the post accused the eight of being 'wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.' Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being 'litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.'"

The attacks are working. Vandersloot revealed in an interview on Fox News that his business practice is being hurt by the attacks from the Obama team.

    What did you expect. Don’t you remember all those Auto Dealerships that close. Most of them were owned by people who donated to the Republican party. Even the one who had exceptional sales were closed.

    As far as I’m concerned this all the fault of the mainstream media. They refused to uncover the truth about Obama. all the while they went after Palin and McCain. They are hypocrites who refused to tell the truth about Obama. we need new laws to prevent the media from distorting the truth.

    The best resent example is. The NBC edited 911 tapes that started an uproar. Along with the media (I believe the NY Times) called Zimmerman a white Hispanic. We now know he is 25% black. Have they mentioned it? I don’t think so.

    IMPEACH OBAMA NOW! ! ! ! ! ! !

    What a horrible and frightening scenario. This would make me mad, however, and I’d go to the mat again and again to make this as public a situation as I could. The best disinfectant is sunlight, and I’d make sure ads were taken out everywhere, to let people know how evil this administration is. We know powerful people like to keep power, but this administration is underhanded and bullying. Scary.

    The media is almost completely duplicitous. They are in bed with Obama and all things liberal. Are we somehow supporting them? Are there ways we can organize a national boycott?

    WHY DOESN’T SOMEONE CREATE MORE CONSERVATIVE MEDIA OUTLETS???
    Why is Fox News all there is? One of the obvious methods of destroying so much in our country is the strategy of overwhelming people. When you come at people with one thing after another, they can’t battle it all and give in. We need to do that. Do you mean to tell me that there is no one with the wherewithall to start another Fox News?? What about a national newspaper?? People apparently still do read the traitorous New York Times, Washington Post, etc.
    Why are conservatives so limited??

    Because conservatives are just now catching on. So much has been done to undermine public perception for so long, we have a long way to go to get on the same playing field.

    The nastiness has not even begun yet. It’s going to get much worse, and frankly, I don’t think even the most patriotic among us have the stomach for what’s coming, and I don’t think we have the collective will to fight it. I don’t see anyone I know willing to march across the frozen tundra with nothing but rags wrapped around their feet to fight for liberty.

    Obama is not selective on who he turns his thugs loose. The only criteria is if they have spoken out against him. Don’t you know? We have no right to speak against Herr Obama. In typical narcissistic filthy Chicago-type political fashion, no one is exempted. Obama, knowing that he is the answer to America’s future, believes no one dare cross him. You historians out there will definitely draw analogies to the Hitler Regime. Nixon wasn’t even close!

    Even Governor Chris Christie is not exempt. He turned in receipts for reimbursement during his time as a US Attorney. The Justice Department, under corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder, went through those receipts with a fine-toothed comb to find any possible discrepancies. WoW! They determined that in Christie’s time working for the Feds he turned in $1200. in receipts for which he didn’t deserve remuneration. Then immediately leaked the information to the leftwing, liberal/socialist news media to smear him. Thuggery!

      Don’t look now, folks but the Soros controlled private equity conglomerate, Cerberus/Freedom Group has bought up virtually all the firearms/munitions companies in the US. Names like Remington, Bushmaster, Panther Arms, Marlin, H&R, NEF, Dakota Arms, LC Smith, Parker, EOTAC, Barnes Bullet, and AAC. Can anyone say, ” NEW WORLD ORDER” ?

      gimmesometruth. You got scammed. No truth in Soros owning Freedom Group.

      Freedom Group owns a large number of firearm and ammo manufacturers. This is TRUE.

      Freedom Group is owned by Cerberus. This is also TRUE.
      Soros owns Cerberus. FALSE or at least highly improbable and unable to be confirmed. Can’t even find him as a stock holder.

      This ‘warning’ started as e-mail forwards in late 2009/early 2010 when Freedom Group attempted to go public with stock and they bought up Barnes Bullets.

      Cerberus was started and is owned by Stephen Feinberg. No reputable sources we have found (ie Wall Street Journal, Businessweek, etc. ) list Soros in any way connected to Cerberus. Most locations for this are online message boards or blogs that copy/paste the same or similar ‘warnings’ like the one above.

      So while Soros IS a gun grabber through funding such organizations as IANSA and Media Matters, it’s not through Cerberus or The Freedom Group.

      If you don’t believe me just ask the NRA. Contrary to a fanciful claim made in a viral email, the Freedom Group is not linked to the liberal billionaire. The National Rifle Association says the real owners are “strong supporters” of gun rights.

      IMPEACH OBAMA NOW! ! ! ! !

    This election hasn’t even begun. It will get 10X to the +1,000,000th power worse before the ‘fat lady sings’.

    We need a ‘scrapper’ on our side, not a polite chameleon.

    A private citizen with his own company should have the resources to file a lawsuit against the Obama campaign for defamation of character. Of course the lawyers and judges are all in Obama’s pocket.

    I’ve used Melaleuca products for years; I switched to reduce the amount of toxic cleaners in my house when my second child was born. I’m at the point where I can no longer use laundry detergent from the grocery store (the smell gives me headaches and residue makes my skin itch). I’ve been happy using Melaleuca; knowing their political position makes me even happier. Sort of like eating at Chik-Fil-A because it offends people they close on Sundays and believe in God. Or buying Texaco gas because Jesse Jackson boycotted them. You can see their products at: http://www.melaleuca.com

    I worked with a former Hungarian army officer who had lived through the “blame it all on the Jews” period in European history. As he said the Germans were too close to the financial manipulations and involved to see what was happening. They just wanted to blame someone for the collapse of their money and the Jews were easily identified as involved in financial matters because some had bought German industries for a few cents on the dollar when the Mark collapsed in value. Hitler also blamed the British, French and Wall Street. Does this have a familiar ring?

      No, assault not the way to end it. EDUCATING THE PEOPLE is the answer. If people did not listen and believe, those liberal media organizations would cease to exist. Here is a wise saying: Those who are forced against their will are of the same opinion still. We need to teach people what Conservatism is bec we cannot force them to change. People must be taught that Conservatism is the only true freedom! We believe that people must have the freedom that God gave to each person so that each of us can pursue our own dream and goals. We must be as free to fail as we are to succeed.

    This is the time for all Conservatives and American Patriots everywhere to actively support all Constitution-supporting Conservative candidates running for every office everywhere. Send $$$, support and promote them by telling other people about them, make their names known by promoting them on websites and social networks, etc etc. First be certain that your own local and state legislators are the Conservatives that you need, and then broaden your scope. Yes, it does matter to us in Georgia what the Senator in Nevada does. Be willing to support Conservative candidates in other states. Go to Jim DeMint’s site and sign up; he will tell you the names of those we can trust and support. senateconservatives.com

    You know, its funny that all you “conservatives” even those calling for education haven’t even bothered looking for the site in question. Even the weekly standard just goes by what VanderSloot says the site says, rather than provide the link to the site and give people the choice to decide for themselves. Probably don’t want to expose you to outside influences…

    So as a public service, I wanted to provide a link to the article, but it seems that particular one is one of the sites that is blocked by GOPusa. You put thye link there and the post wont post up.

    So here. The site is keeping gop honest, all one word. The article was posted on 04/20 and its called “Behind the curtain: A brief history of Romney’s donors.” That should allow you to find it and have a read of it for yourself.

    Your’re welcome
