How Foreign Liberals (and Jihadi's for that matter) Can Contribute Illegally to the Obama Campaign
[UPDATE: A friend alerted me to this Newsmax article which details extensive illegal donations to Obama by foreigners. ]
It’s pretty easy — all you need is a credit card (foreign card is OK), a phony name, phony US address, phony telephone number, and just keep each contribution less than $200 so your illegal contribution never needs to be reported. As a foreigner you can even give more than Americans are allowed to legally contribute, by just using a different phony name each time you contribute, so that your contributions are never tallied, thus never exceed the limit.
And of course American supporters of Obama can also contribute more than the legal limit by following the same procedure.
Not to mention the fact that you can easily steal someone else's credit card number and contribute through it, not needing the correct name etc. (yes it has happened), and just hope the victim doesn't notice it.
Last Friday I read on various web sites (e.g. NRO) that the Obama campaign was facilitating illegal credit card contributions by disabling standard security verification procedures. Normally, a credit card payment is rejected if the name you give does not match the name on the card. Duh. Not so the Obama campaign. I said to myself, "If Americans can do this, I wonder if foreigners could too?" I’m a US citizen, but I have lived in South Africa for the last ten years and have a foreign credit card, from a South African bank. So I googled the Obama campaign web site and used my foreign credit card to contribute $5 (the minimum accepted) to his campaign. Sure enough, my account was charged $5 (54 Rand) on Monday. I assume that if I could do it, all those French who want Obama to be president could do it too.
Money translates into votes, because propaganda is effective, including obvious lies which are endlessly repeated.
Here, then, are the step by step instructions for fraudulently contributing to the Obama campaign, and participating in the mother of all campaign swindles:
Go to the Obama web site, find the page where contributions are accepted (I won’t link to it, but it’s not hard to find).
Listen to Obama’s spiel which automatically plays, telling you that since he’s not taking money from PAC’s or Lobbyists (nothing about foreigners), he’s depending upon you to contribute.
Fill in the name, address, etc., according to your imagination. Nothing needs to be correct except the credit card number. I used the name "Good Guess", a phony address etc., and got the message that my donation was accepted; three days later the money was charged to my account. During those three days a couple of mainstream newspapers did some whitewashing work for Obama, failing to make clear the deliberateness of Obama’s disabling of standard security checks to prevent credit card fraud, failing to point out the obvious, that you cannot get away with such fraud on the McCain/Palin web site, etc.
Next I had the opportunity to have Obama e-mail my friends, inviting them to follow my example. I had them send an e-mail from "Good Guess" to one of my e-mail addresses, and a short time later the e-mail arrived.
I know from experience that the Obama web site could be set up to automatically detect if it is being accessed from a foreign country (South Africa, in my case). I know from experience that it could be set up to reject foreign credit cards, even if the names and addresses were correct (for example, I cannot use my American credit card for certain transactions in South Africa).
And by the way, you can also contribute to Obama anonymously through those pre-paid credit cards you buy at the drug store.
As another Republican candidate said 12 years ago, "Where is the outrage?"
Here is a screen shot of Obama’s "thanks" for my contribution.
Here is a screen shot of the e-mail I got from the Obama campaign, soliciting me to join in this fraudulent enterprise.
Here is a screen shot of my online bank statement (personal names blacked out).
No. 1 :
Thanks for your investigative work. I am using this post on my blog with link back to your blog of course. next sep is to demand that this is investigated by the US AG. Of course of Obama gets in the becomes highly unlikely
Regards in Christ
No. 2 :
What is to comment on, Obama and his accomplices have illegally gamed the system and they have entered into to an illegal scheme to contravene existing law with the compliance on the watchdogs; the media. The media being in on the 'scheme' have effectively thwarted our counties voting laws and made voting a joke. Illegals are voting, Jihadists are giving money, Acorn is stuffing the ballot boxes and Obama consorts with terrorists and might not even be a citizen; what next Gulags?
No. 3 :
Obama's whole campaign is one big lie foisted on the American people. The amazing ability of some Americans (especially the mainstream media) to ignore who Obama's friends are, to ignore the fact that he comes from corrupt Chicago politics, to totally disregard the facts, is chilling. I hear he doesn't like the Constitution either...now that's a really great idea for the highest office in the land. Will there be justice? I'm glad I believe in God.
