Uh oh. Sounds like a blockbuster October surprise coming soon

Man I hope this is true. Here’s the lowdown, via the Washington Examiner:

According to knowledgeable sources, a national magazine and a national web site are preparing a blockbuster donor scandal story.

Sources told Secrets that the Obama campaign has been trying to block the story. But a key source said it plans to publish the story Friday or, more likely, Monday.

According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.

The Obama campaign has received hundreds of millions in small dollar donations, many via credit card donations through their website. On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.

At the end of the 2008 presidential campaign, the Obama-Biden effort was hit with a similar scandal. At the time, the Washington Post reported that the Obama campaign let donors use “largely untraceable prepaid credit cards that could potentially be used to evade limits on how much an individual is legally allowed to give or to mask a contributor’s identity.”

          Bowing comes naturally for him. Heck, he bows every damned day to America, … except that he’s facing away from us. Enough is enough !! It’s time to give him the boot the next time he bows.

    I always wonder how many credit card donations does he receive using stolen credit card ?

  • And the 2008 scandal ramifications were??? Crickets.

  • denbren52

    That would be a better explanation than altitude sickness or whatever Al Gore was saying. I certainly hope there’s plenty of proof!

  • justplainbob

    I hope that this really is something. We have them on the run now. Last night Barack expected the Mitt that his campaign has been telling us about to show up. Boy did he get a surprise. And now this possible scandal ?

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    Is it really desperate to be seeing a Michelle needs your help ad before an online game that typically less than 500 (at times far less) are playing at a time?

    And on top of that, an Obama/Biden ad with Michelle’s picture saying are you voting for Barack? Register to vote online. Then it changed to Join Michelle and tell Barack your in. And there’s a button that says are you in?

    I guess maybe this credit card thing explains how Obama’s able to do so many ads on 11 connects?

  • MiDoug

    one deceptive obama campaign ad – $1,000,000
    a month of biased media reports – $150,000,0000
    a scandal to expose it all – priceless

  • I wonder how much of it is from George Soros?

    • p m

      I wonder how much of it is stimulus $$ taxpayers are liable for, via prepaid credit cards to the kind of people who get obama phones. There are 16 million of them alone. Then kick in the union’s stimulus funds and overseas scams – there’s no limit.

      • Nukeman60

        Let’s see – $1.5 billion to the Muslim Brotherhood, with a kickback of $150 million in pre-paid credit cards. Everybody wins and nobody knows. Sounds an awful lot like Chicago-style politics.

        • IwjwI


          BTW The Green Scam works the same way. He funds his campaign with our money any way he can get it.

    • piperlord

      oh, yes. georgie schwartz. one of the BIG puppet-masters… gee, wonder what he does after his puppet quits working…

  • Spartan4Palin

    All I can say at this point,,,,,,


    He promised things were coming that would finally expose Obama for who he really is! And though I miss Breitbart very much, We have ALL got a great guardian angel looking out for this great country in heaven, now!!!

    So bring it on, Andrew. We’ll take it from here, man!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      We have to really thank the heavens for that man, he really changed the dynamic in this country, no more can the media spew their lies without any challenge, no more they will not be held accountable, no more are they the only ones people can get their news from. I really pray for his soul, because of him and his efforts websites as great as the scoop have come to life.

    • NJK

      I really miss him.

  • Paratisi

    Arab Oil Money is on the way! What a Scumbag crowd, the DNC has turned out to be! Talk about “Selling Their Mothers” for power! I sure wish I could say I was surprised though. Does anybody still wonder why he’s supporting Terrorist take overs in the ME? Now he can Blackmail the Arab Oil producing countries or he sends the muslim brotherhood to start a revolution! All of it, of course, with cover from the Obama Enemy media! I have a simple and easy concept for taking on the Obama Enemy media. See it here: http://paratisiusa.blogspot.com/2012/09/an-open-letter-to-those-who-should-know.html?spref=tw

    God Bless America!

  • IwjwI

    Getting money from the Muslim Brotherhood in every country that Obama helped bring its members to power…. & just like ’08, from foreign countries.

  • MB

    don’t tease us here!!! This had better be something exposing!!!

  • It should come out as soon as possible so that the aggregate of Obama controversies/flaws does not get overshadowed by a Libyan strike, and so that people can not be fooled into the motives behind such military action, should it take place.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      I think we should wait a little bit, I want to let the Romney win last night to marinate the voters, and I want it to come out just before the vice presidential debate.

      • The reason I disagree is because if he attacks Libya soon, it will be obvious to people that it’s a distraction (intentional), if it comes later, it will not look like an attempt to take heat off himself and control the news cycle. You have to force his hand to see if he is trying to set up a distraction. I believe he will act on Libya before the 2nd debate, and so he has to do this soon….therefore, the dogpile has to happen now, so that any move is scrutinized. Remember, he has to bolster his foreign policy, and he can not afford to lose two debates in a row, or to be seen as weak and responsible for Libya- if he can get off an attack for political gain, the tone of his failed foreign policy will be completely different.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          You are on to something there.:)

          • I wish I could explain myself better because as I re-read it, it is a little confusing.

            Obama wants to attack Libya before the 2nd debate, to boost his FP creds.

            If he did it today, it would be too obvious, if he does it over the weekend, there is enough heat off the media cycle that it will not be obvious to Americans that it is for political gain.

            If we keep the heat on until the 2nd debate, to show flub after flub, if he does attack Libya before that 2nd debate, it will look like a politically motivated act, even to the most idiotic people.

            If the heat comes off, this debate will be old news by the weekend, and anything he does after that will not tie into the news cycle.

            They have to have a filler story in between so that the narrative doesn’t switch so abruptly that it draws attention and criticism. The media is in on it, I’m sure, so we must resist the temptation to change what we focus our attention on. Stick on the debate until the next scandal hits, and it better hit fast because anti-Obama news never remains in the cycle for long. Keep the hits coming and it will make it so obvious, if there is military action, that it was done for political reasons.

        • IwjwI

          He could do something absurdly evil if he thinks that he is loosing.

          (Psssst. Some in the Media are beginning to worry about living under Shariah Law. Their nervousness has been building.)

          Obama loosing the media makes for a very dangerous POTUS. Obama is a ‘get even’ type.
          He’ll break out his “hit list…..”

  • MrMicawber

    Why did a similar issue “go away” in 2008? Does anyone remember?

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Because as always the media burried it, and since Obama does not take questions from anybody that is not friendly the story had to die. I hope Romney uses it in the next debate, and hammers it home because people still think that Obama is a nice guy.

    • Betsey_Ross

      It seemed to. No one reported on it after a while and at the time I thought it was a pretty big deal. Then it turned into another Obama crime scene that no one wanted to investigate because it was racist or something.

    • Patriot077

      The slobbering love affair the media had with the won – and a democrat House & Senate. No one listened to critical voices on anything. Who could take up an investigation? Sad but true.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    This Administration, and their corrupt ways, should be in jail, but it wont be possible with the lame republicans, and our attorney general.

    • It will not be possible because of society. If you think there is a chance for civil unrest if Obama loses a close election, imagine if any of his cohorts get trials or Holder gets prison. It’s a shame that we have criminals operating openly in our government. We may as well be some third world country with justice that only applies to those are politically expendable.

    • toongoon

      Just this week Obama and the Democrats bought a prison in Illinois that they originally wanted to move GITMO detainees to. Can you just imagine the irony of Obama and his cronies being incarcerated in their own federal prison?

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Lmao I am salivating at the idea.

      • Nukeman60

        I used to live in Thomson. That prison was never used from day one, rotted away and the government had to put millions into it to get it back to proper shape just to put the GITMO boys there. And all the locals hated the idea of bringing terrorists into their community.

        • toongoon

          I knew it was close to you and though it was never used I didn’t know it was in such bad shape. But how would locals like it if it housed real domestic terrorists?

          • Nukeman60

            The big complaint was whether it would even be safe in the area, with any kind of terrorist there. They feared that it targeted the area for terrorist attacks as a retribution for their friends incarceration. Thomson was only about 600-700 people, a very small town with one bank, one grocery store and 2 bars. Main street was only one block long. Nobody wanted any kind of attention.

  • RichmondG30

    Blockbuster story. Prediction? Media ignores. Nothing to see here people. Just move along.

  • cheezwhizz

    I hope this story breaks on 10/9 or 10/10,
    just before the Veep debate .
    Imagine how desperate and angry Biden will be against the cool and collected Ryan .

  • Malkiel_kol_hakavod_la_el

    I think we have to go back to the year 2008 and check folks but i think Barack Hussein Obama did this same thing at that time..

    so far I found this:

    Barack Hussein Obama Muslim Overseas Fundraising Scandal Illegal Foreign Internet Campaign Donations Contributions Palestinian T-Shirt Sales Michael Isikoff Newsweek on David Shuster’s Place for Politics on MSNBC Show Says $400 Million which is Half of Barack Obama’s Campaign Contributions are Under $200 no Source Reporting Required Campaign Cash Loophole Somewhat Cleverly Exploited by Team B. Hussein Obama Prompting Federal Elections Commission Investigation of Internet Fundraising Scam…

  • sjmom

    I’d like to know who overseas is sending Obama donations; if learned, it could even be more of a scandal. Anyone who is dumb enough to do this deserves to be caught.

  • joyfulgiver

    Here’s my suggestion: when the news breaks, here on TRS, post it on your FB, announce on Twitter, email to your entire address book, post in your blogs and start spreading the news. If the media won’t do their work then it’s time for us to RISE UP and get the job done!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      You are absolutely right we must all do our part, part of it is spreading it over the internet, another way is to tell our friends, family members, coworkers, and make sure we have at least 5 people registered to vote and make sure that you take them to vote.

    • Nukeman60

      I like it. TRS is campaign central. The social media is rapidly outstripping the Lame Stream Media.

    • A lot of us are doing that already. It’s great!!

  • tvlgds

    This happened in 2008, too. They knew it because of the oddball amounts with the currency conversion. Nothing happened then and nothing will happen now.

    • demographicallychallenged

      Yep and it happend on a smaller scale with Clinton/Gore who recieved 1/2 million from Chinese Monks who swore to and oath of poverty. Nothing will be done, none of these politicians want you to know where the money comes from.

  • Botzilla

    This was on Drudge so unless the video is of Obama contract killing a baby then I’m not getting my hopes up.

    • I feel the same way.. the media shields Obama so much.

  • How big this Oct Surprise hurts Obama will depend on 2 things(1) The corrupt media reports it (2) If they don’t sugar coat it if they do report it. If it’s really a blockbuster Oct Surprise you know as well i do the the Media will ignore it

  • Monday would be better, jobs report comes out tomorow

    • That’s what i was thinking, Plus you also don’t want it being buried with debate news. Monday starts a fresh week it cant get buried.

    • proudhispanicconservative

      Unfortunately the unemployment rate is going to go down, due to how many people dropped out of the workforce. You will see the jobs numbers be used to say that we are recovering.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        Today the spin on the news was jobless claims went up by less than expected.

  • stage9

    yawn. Holder is Attorney General.

  • johngalt30

    This is what the self-destruction of an entire US political party looks like.

    • stage9

      more like the wages of sin…

  • hbnolikeee

    I have done some work with foreign currency exchanges. Somebody has a boatload of donations that are not whole numbers. This happens with conversion of foreign money.

  • keninil

    Maybe they will make him “sequester” $200M or so because of donation problems. Then he could give it all to his local Muslim charity.

  • Yep. He tried it once already getting money flowing from Gaza last time. He claims he sent it back, and nothing came of it. Wonder what the spin will be this time.

  • 3seven77

    For what it’s worth, THIS might be the October surprise. This is from a commenter named ‘Mike in Amman’ in a debate thread from Ace of Spades:

    “Forgive the off-topic, but there is supposed to be a major event here in Amman tomorrow. And estimated 20,000 Muslim Brotherhood members marching for the overthrow of the king, and an estimated 200,000 Jordanians counter-marching, with the police and military operating under the unspoken guideline that if that 200,000 wants to kick the crap out of the Muslim Brotherhood, the authorities will not intervene. Foreigners have been told to stay home, and even prepare for evacuation. We’ll see what happens.”
    Posted by: MikeinAmman at October 04, 2012 02:49 PM

    Keep an eye out for this story and say a prayer for Mike and all Americans in Jordan tonight. We can’t count on this administration to provide them with any security.

  • Sober_Thinking

    I hope this is true too. Obama’s ship is listing to the side right now, taking on water.

    Let’s fire a few more salvo’s into its side shall we?

  • AwakenNow

    Payoffs from the Billions of our tax dollars being given to Egypt and Libya.

  • I find it odd that he has so many small amount donors. The large portion of his supporters don’t seem like the type to send in hundreds of dollars

  • Nukeman60

    I was among those screaming about this in ’08. Obama had $300 million in donations from untraceable pre-paid credit cards that Obama claimed was from the average citizen. McLame brushed it off as no big deal and nothing was made of it. How many average citizens do you know that go out and get a pre-paid credit card to donate to an election?

    It looks like Obama thought he could get away with it again this year. New day, Mr President, different story. Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on me.

    If you believe your sky is falling, Chicken Barry, don’t think it’s a fairy tale. It really is falling.

  • NJK

    This happened in 2008, and nothing was ever done. They keep committing crimes, and no one stops them. It’s as though they’re above the law. Crimes are called policy with this bunch, whether it’s murder, theft, or election fraud.

  • This was clearly an issue in 2008 and like everything else Obama does, it was buried. There was clear voter fraud in 2008 and McCain had firsthand knowledge of fraud in Wisconsin but chose to let it slide, perhaps in fear of being labeled a racist.

    From the beginning of the 2008 campaign until now, Obama has been handled with kid gloves regarding anything that even appeared amiss. It’s time to expose the corruption that runs rampant through everything he does.

    • Nukeman60

      Those of us from Illinois are used to (and sick of) the corrupt media, corrupt politicians, and corrupt atmosphere in Chicago. You’re right. It’s time to put a stop to it. We could never believe that the country would assume Barack Obama could be clean coming out of such a garbage pit as Chicago. Now everyone is finding out.

  • axslinger


  • NoToTyrants

    The media will not hold their beloved Barack accountable. They will not only refuse to cover this criminal behavior, they will give the Obama campaign cover. They will launch own campaign to minimize the damage by downplaying its’ significance and by attacking anyone bringing it up as racist, alarmist, hyper-partisan, ultra-right-wing, etc.

    The RINO leadership will play dumb and will not even launch a feigned investigation.

    For a refresher in Marxist Stream Media treachery, does anyone remember this quote by a former Democrat Presidential candidate?:

    “My counsel advises me that there is no controlling, legal authority or case that says that there was any violation of law whatsoever in the manner in which I asked people to contribute to our re-election campaign…”

    Who said this? I’ll give you a hint, Buddhist Temple.

    Was he ever charged or even aggressively questioned about it?

    • PatriotLovesFreedom

      I heard from the son of former girlfriend’s mother’s neice that Barack Hussein Obama once knew a girl in pre-school whose father’s uncle’s nanny that once worked in a union sent a check of $50 to Barack Hussein Obama while she was visiting Canada on a Tuesday. But don’t expect to hear anything about this from the liberal media! They’re too busy reporting on the news!

  • vrob125

    Silly article. Look. Millions of people give to the Obama campaign. A few billionaires take care of Romney plus a few regular people. These few (the Adelsons, the Koch Brothers) cover the real bills. I think a candidate that receives millions from millions of regular people is more credible than one who owes a 100 million to two or three people. What will Romney owe to those cronies when the bill becomes due? Think about it. And before you answer–do your research.

    • NoToTyrants

      I have done my research. I have determined, you are a mind numbed brainwashed Marxist drone, who warrants no more of my time.

    • Nukeman60

      Before we can think about it, we have to stop laughing. Are you the one who does that comedy skit with Jeff Dunham? I love those threesome skits you do with Jeff and that Jalapeno on a stick.

  • And right below the article of trash is what? Mitt Romneys Official Site Ad. Obama and Biden accept contributions from the 47%. Remember those Americans? The ones Mitt hates? Some of the 47% have unsecured or prepaid debit/credit cards. Duh Dude. No income=no credit=no secured cards. Or is the math too difficult to figure out?

    • Nukeman60

      Try to explain to me why someone would donate $22.86 on a pre-paid credit card. Does your math skills understand why that really is? And why in 2008, $300 million was obtained via non-traceable pre-paid credit cards. Did they cash in their food stamps to buy tons of pre-paids? Do these same unsecured card owners also not have a photo ID, which may keep them from their main goal in life of voting?

  • loriannringold

    Oh I am so hoping this will be the October Surprise instead of the fact that Romney whooped his Ass in the debate. This would seal the deal….You go Non-Mainsteam News!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I love it and I am waiting on Pins and Needles to see what happens to that fake SOB!!!!!

  • Campaign finance irregularities?Who cares. All politicians are guilty of that.Better be something more.or there will be another Tucker Carlson disaster.

  • No surprise….he is favored by so many overseas that share his desire for a demished America and a new Marxist World Order. I guarantee you he has beed raising money from oversea donors for years and under the legal radar! This could be very very big!! Shocking the Obama Campaign trying to keep the story from going public!! Most Transparent Adm in History!!! Well if you live on Mars.

  • J

    So a non story from 2008 will somehow be a big story in 2012?

    The Obama administration has been in so many scandals that they are white noise now. Giving assault weapons to Mexican warlords that subsequently used them to murder a US border agent barely moved the needle.

    Sorry, that ain’t gonna stick in my opinion. There would have to be a tape of him and Michael Jackson playing doctor with children to make a dent in the Teflon president. The media would cover that up too or blame it on MJ.

  • sue-marie

    This will not “move the needle” as many here have said in regards to Obama answering to this illegal act but what it may do will increase donations to Romney…so let’s donate a few bucks!

  • Unbelievable. It never ends with this prez.

  • MiketheMarine

    Hajji in chief and his Criminal AG know no bounds to their deceit.

  • Well, as the article points out, Obama’s campaign did the same thing in 2008
    with no real consequences. We should expect the same behavior and outcome
    this time. He has been bought and paid for by malevolent, foreign sources. The
    only October SURPRISE here would be if something *actually* stuck to this prince
    of fools.

  • Nosmo King

    Drudge was first to post this story and first to remove it from his site….Hmmmm

  • marcellucci

    Most donations processed through the Solyndra Visa Platinum…….

  • Conservative_Hippie

    I had a hunch this was true back in 2008. With the amount of money he brought in it just doesn’t make sense any other way.

  • Laurel

    Nothing will be done. The man wasn’t vetted. His cronyism is overlooked. His law breaking is continually overlooked. Foreign cash has been dumping into his coffers since 2007 and it was overlooked. Face the facts folks. People are worshiping at the alter of Obama and not the alter of Christ.

  • I will be shocked, SHOCKED! to discover that taxpayer stimulus money was used to buy pre-paid credit cards that made anonymous donations to 0bama. Yeah. Were EBT cards used too?

  • artfuldodger

    Meanwhile in other news. Romney solicits money while in Israel, England and Poland from non-US citizens and political groups.

  • Flint9

    Millions of us are tired of false promises, rumors, and media bias. These groups should present and back-up hard proof on these contributions. Who will investigate it? Look at the DOJ Fast and Furious debacle, HHS Hatch Act violations, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., ETC. Present the real truth. I am tired of seeing our country on the decline. I am a blue collared, red blooded citizen of the United States of America. Just like my good friend whose skin is darker than mine and ancestors can be traced to Africa or the fella who owns the gas station down the street. He came from India chasing a dream. My family came thorugh Ellis Island and my surname is posted there. Unless another terrorist attack or ground assault wipes it out. I believed in 2007/2008 that change would be great for this nation. I was duped and helped create that problem. I looked over the stories of our president’s affilation with William Ayers- 1970’s domestic terrorist as a right voting scare. Now I truly believe it was not. Coupled with our current domestic and international affairs there is something terrible and laden with fiction with our current elected officials in the highest offices. We are in this together for better or worse so let’s make it better in November and vote for that change. I believe Romney and the strong supporting cast he assembles will be for the best.

  • Subie201

    Didn’t Hillary receive illegal donation from a specific Chinese donor during her campaign in 2008 and she was forced to return it in order to save face? Well let’s see what Obama will do! He isn’t honorable so the WH is going to do their usual damage control and LIE!!!!!!!!

  • Barb VandeBunte

    Possibly a large part of the scandal money is from muslim countries, like he received in 2008. Apparently millions came illegally from muslim countries, and the investigation was never followed through on. Thank God this time someone is actually looking into such disgusting fraud. Too many are too trusting, not being able to imagine Obama would be that much of a crook.

  • “Man, I hope this is true”? (the correctly punctuated version)

    Nice objectivity this website has. Pathetic. By the way, stock market is up, unemployment is down. There are concrete indicators that Obama’s plan is working. Yet you clowns want him out for a guy who has given us no indication of what his plan is and swears he’s not going to cut anything except PBS. Pathetic.

    • 57thunderbird

      All baloney.You are easily duped.

    • RKM1954


      I’m new to this website. I’m an Independent, non-Conservative (moderate) voter, but like to get information from a variety of sources.

      That being said, look at the title of this site….That should give you a clue as to it’s political bias, if there is one. I don’t expect it to be objective, or slanted towards Obama (like many other sites).

      Let’s assume your assertions are true for a moment. What does any of that have to do with this article?

      “According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecured accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws.”

      That is the story, not your support of Obama. Next time, you may want to check out Huffpo, or MSNBC. They would be more inclined to have stories you agree with.

      Have a nice day.

  • RKM1954

    Is he the same one that told Harry Reid about Mitt not paying taxes? Ever. Never.

  • RKM1954

    “On Thursday, the campaign announced a record September donor haul of $150 million.”

    Man, that’s a lot of $$$ for one month. His donations have been down up to that point. I wonder what he did that was so special in order to get the $$$ flowing again.
