Foreign Contributions: Investigating Obama by Pamela Geller 11 Oct 2010 post a comment Share This: It took years, but there is something I finally agree with Barack Obama and Al Franken on. Obama and his propaganda machine in the mainstream media, not to mention his party of corruption, are calling for an investigation of “foreign money” in campaigns. Finally. I have been calling for a special prosecutor for years, ever since I exposed the millions Obama received from Muslim nations, Hamas-controlled Gaza and other foreign countries. Obama warned Thursday that “groups that receive foreign money are spending huge sums to influence American elections, and they won’t tell you where the money for their ads come from.” He also said that “just this week, we learned that one of the largest groups paying for these ads regularly takes in money from foreign corporations.” Franken then duly hurried to do Obama’s bidding, calling on the Federal Election Commission to investigate the Chamber of Commerce, the group to which Obama was referring. We move to a theater of the absurd upon hearing Al Franken, who lost his election on election night and began pulling votes out of car trunks to steal that election, calling for an investigation of foreign money. Nonetheless, the Democrats’ mainstream media shills then took up the cause. On MSNBC, Rachel Maddow confronted Oregon Republican Congressional candidate Art Robinson with accusations about foreign contributions: “If you get elected in part because of this spending and you find out that it’s from criminals, or foreign interests, or communists or something, wouldn’t that bother you?” Whether or not it should bother Robinson, it should bother Obama. While he is calling for an investigation into the Chamber of Commerce, there should be a full investigation into the foreign millions Obama received for his campaign. As I show in great detail in my book The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War On America (Simon & Schuster), Obama’s 2008 campaign finance records are full of riddles, mysteries, and unanswered questions. It was I who broke the explosive news stories of Obama’s contributions from Gaza (Hamas-controlled Rafah) (documentation here), and of how he lied about refunding those jihad donations -- not to mention the tens of millions of dollars Obama received in donations from foreign countries (scroll this link). Yes, I checked over John McCain’s FEC records, too. They were so clean, you could eat dinner off them. Not Obama’s. Contributing nearly $25,000 to the Obama campaign was Monir Edwan, who was listed on FEC documents as contributing from the city of Rafah in the state “GA.” Georgia? No – there is no Rafah in the Peach State. Monir Edwan sent money to Obama from Rafah, Gaza. Rafah is a Gaza refugee camp. According to the FEC, contributions to the Obama campaign from three brothers, Osama, Monir and Hossam Edwan, all from Rafah, totaled $33,000. And they weren’t alone. Al-Jazeera reported on March 31, 2008 that Gazans were manning phone banks for the Obama campaign. Here is video of those Gaza phone banks. The Obama campaign claimed that they had returned $33,500 in illegal contributions from Gaza – despite the fact that records do not show that it was returned, and the brothers said they did not receive any money. And indeed, Obama’s refunds and redesignations on file with the FEC show no refund to Osama, Hossam, or Monir Edwan in the Rafah refugee camp. When I confronted Congressman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) about the Gaza phone banks issue in South Florida in early November 2008, he said that if there “really were phone banks in Gaza, that would be a major campaign issue.” But he laughed at the idea that Obama was receiving campaign contributions from Gaza. The mainstream media laughed with him, continuing its refusal to cover this explosive story. And to this day Obama’s foreign contributions have never been investigated. The Democrat party today is so corrupt that Boss Tweed is blushing. The Democrats are so contemptuous of the American people, they think they can pull a stunt like this while being unequivocally guilty of what they’re accusing the Chamber of Commerce of doing. As for the Chamber of Commerce, spokesperson Tita Freeman said: “We’re careful to ensure that we comply with all applicable laws. No foreign money is used to fund political activities.” Remember when Obama said, “We are the ones we have been waiting for”? Yes, indeedy. And today, he is the one he is looking for. This is our moment. This is the moment we have been waiting for. This is the time to investigate Obama’s contributions. It could, and should, mean the end of Obama’s presidency.
