Obama Thugs Threatened to Yank Group's Tax-Exempt Status Unless They Disinvited Palin
Plus: My First Official Non-Ironic Important Action Alert and Pretty Vicious Rant

At this point I suppose it's absurd to ask why the media isn't interested in such McCarthyesque abuse of power. They can dedicate dozens of reporters to Sarah Palin's supposed abuse of power, but when thug lawyers attached to the Obama campaign begin making threats to use the IRS against organizations unless they fall in line, the media yawns.

He's just "getting in their faces," you know. He's black. Since he has to overcome the inherent racism of US voters, he's allowed to do whatever he wants, no matter how corrupt or creepily illegal.

So another abuse goes unreported.

At least Bill Clinton waited until he was actually president before setting the IRS after political opponents. Barack Obama isn't even waiting for the first debates.

The right blogosphere -- that would be you -- needs a paradigm shift. For a long time we've resisted the activist side of things. Or most of us have, anyway. Many of us are not really comfortable pushing politics on other people.

Including me, and look what I do for a living.

As much as this feels wrong and goes against our basic inclinations, we (and by we I mean you again) have to start getting active -- and annoying. Stories like this have to be emailed to friends. A lot of friends. Not just the Republican ones who may be interested. The Democratic and independent friends who will probably be annoyed to get this kind of a story in their email.

But they do need to start getting them.

Because the media is not going to report these stories. It's that simple. They have decided that this is probably the last election they can possibly rig through their corrupt reportage (and nonreportage), and they've decided they're all-in on this one. What little credibility they have left, they will spend it all to insure as best they can the inauguration of President Barack Hussein Obama.

As Bush said so long ago, "We've earned some political capital. Now we're going to spend it." The media hasn't earned theirs, but what they have left, they're spending it. All of it. This election.

We need then to make our own channels of dissemination of information. The media has choked off all the usual channels, so we must improvise and use the tools we have.

And that's email. And word of mouth.

Not "getting in their faces," as Obama says, but no longer meekly accepting the media as the sole gatekeeper of information transmission, either.

The left has been doing this for years -- and they hardly even needed to, given the fact the media is more excited about President Barack Hussein Obama than the netroots themselves.

If we want to win this thing, we need to do likewise. We don't want to do it. We feel odd about it. We feel, actually, kind of ridiculous about it. But it does need to be done.

The media has made its stance clear. There's no longer any point complaining about it or mocking them. They don't care. They're perfectly willing to take this last hit to their credibility.

We need to become the media now. We need to route around the dead circuits. We need to displace them, once and for all.

Just Got an Email from Joe Biden: No, really.


Talk to undecided voters Our team has built a tool called Neighbor to Neighbor that lets you tap into the power of this grassroots movement right from your home.

You can reach out to potential supporters by making phone calls at any time that's convenient for you.

Take this election into your own hands right now by signing up and talking to voters in a crucial battleground state about Barack and our campaign for change.

Right now, this race is neck-and-neck.

And it's all going to come down to what supporters like you do -- or don't do -- in these last 45 days.

The events of the past week have really put into focus what this election is all about.

The failed economic policies of the past eight years have hurt American workers and put our economy on shaky ground. We're up against an opponent who not only supports those policies, but is so out of touch that he actually believes "the fundamentals of our economy are strong."

Millions of Americans are counting on Barack and me to defeat John McCain and deliver the change this country needs -- but we can't do it alone.

Each of us needs to do our part. What's going to win this election for us is organizing on the ground, person-to-person, and growing this movement.

Reach out now to potential supporters and do your part to change this country and move us in a new direction:

http://my.barackobama.com/n2n

Bringing fundamental change to Washington is a big challenge -- but it's never been more important.

Thank you for being part of this movement and working hard to make this country better for all Americans.

Thanks,

Joe

If you want to help fight the nutroots, you can sign up to do a bit of phone-banking for McCain.

Oh: I'm told that we have no proof the lawyers making the threats were formally associated with the Obama campaign.

At the moment, no we don't. But we know damn well they are Obama supporters, and we know the Lightworker has instructed his cultists to "get into their faces."

If those making the threats want to disprove a direct connection to Obama, they can come out of the shadows and make the case they were acting "independently."

But if they're going to do this covertly -- and the media is not going to pursue the story -- I'm comfortable in making all adverse assumptions against the Obama campaign.

That's actually a fair doctrine. If those actually in possession of relevant information refuse to disclose it, the public -- the jury -- is justified in assuming the hidden information is adverse to the parties involved.

If you know half the story you vote for Barack
If you know 3/4s of the story, you vote for McCain
If you know the whole story, you dust off and nuke the planet from orbit. It's the only way to be safe.

5 Ace,
to make matters worse, the AOL homepage has a story about how white racism may cost Obama the election on its rotating headlines window. The study was done in conjunction with Stanford, so who could question its validity or the ovjectivity of the reasearchers.

8 True story -
A friend who's become a sudden Alinskyite Republican-Basher's been on a tear, not wanting to discuss any of Barack's shortcomings, insisting on coming up with reasons to not vote for Republicans.
He brought up "the Bridge to Nowhere" with a couple of yucks - I finally tee'd off on him - thanks to Patterico's postings:
Look [friend's name] Palin changed the "Bridge to Nowhere" project to a "Road to the Fucking Ferry" project - because the fucking people on the fucking island needed a fucking way to get to the town and a road seemed like a pretty goddamned good idea - so the road wasn't to "nowhere"it went to the water's edge which is where a BOAT which transports CARS would dock and the cars would then drive off the boat and onto the fucking road that Palin had built using the fucking money.
Also, Palin didn't tell "Congress" she didn't want the money - she told Alaska's Congressional Delegation she didn't want the money. The Congressmen from Alaska got the funding for the project.
Get me a beer, jackass.
And he did.
So ace's strategy can work.

9 Today, Obama literally stole McCain's line: "American's don't run from history. American's make history." It wasn't word for word, but it might as well have been.

My jaw continues to drop at the audacity of phoniness.

I'll try to find it. It was incredible.

Posted by: Editor at September 20, 2008 04:15 PM (p4YSL)

10 This isn't surprising. Obama attempted to sic the DoJ against the American Issues Project because of the ad they produced connecting him to Bill Ayers. These are his kinds of tactics...put on a facade of hopenchange for the public while attempting to silence and destroy anything and anyone that gets in his way.

BTW...I'd like to see some follow up from this...Jack Cashill has written what I think is a pretty compelling argument to suggest that Dreams of My Father was ghostwritten by Bill Ayers.

15 They have decided that this is probably the last election they can possibly rig through their corrupt reportage (and nonreportage)...
Would that this were true. The media is the propaganda organ of the Democrat party and they have been for 35 years or so. They have done everything they can to throw elections to the Dems including trying to influence voters in the western US on election day (anyone remember them calling states like NC, which Bush won by like 14 percent as "too close to call" on election night, but calling Florida for Gore while the polls in the western panhandle of the state were still open?)
I'd like to think that people are alert to their BS, but I'm afraid that the MSM knows that as long as they control "the narrative"(and theystill do)they can continue to assert a huge influence over far too many or our countrymen.

16 I'm not working right now and I am going to start next week making phone calls for McCain from home and volunteering for my local GOP congressional candidate. And I am going to sign up for the RNC's 72-hour program, which everyone here should do - it is the highly effective get-out-the-vote effort that probably won Ohio for Bush in 2004.

24 I think if we had a big and organized boycott threat to advertisers, then we might get results. But it would have to be BIG and ORGANIZED for it to be effective. Letters to a CEO from a dozen crackpots won't cut it. It will have to be 10,000 or more (non-crackpots). Choose one of the companies that brushes us off and actually boycott their product in a big way. Make the movement well known. Call it something like "Americans for an Honest Media" and present facts of the dishonest media. There are only about a million examples to choose from, already documented on Newsbusters.
We've whined and cried long enough. Time for action.

25 I've found myself spending a lot more time on the "politics" section of my favorite recreational websites. Normally, I just ignore them, or browse through the crazy stuff some people post, but recently I've been tearing into them and fighting back. Of course, it devolves into more madness, and my gut instinct is to just let it go and walk away, but I always wonder about the undecided voter who reads this stuff, and will take my absence as some sort of defeat, so I keep going back to fight the madness more.

I do get the occasional private message from people who at least claim to be influenced by my postings, so that's encouraging.

Strangely, whenever I link to this website, the liberals go crazy. Something about the intellectual level here not being advanced enough for Play-Do, as I recall.

http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D92PL7400show_article=1

Seriously, scratch a liberal,find a fascist.
Too long we've sat around going "we can't become them." Talk like that ensures that there will a them and not a we. In 1939 the British didn't want to bomb Hitler's massed weaponry because it would be ungentlemanly. By 1945 they were gleefully dropping firebombs on cities. They didn't stop being Brits when they did that, any less than we stopped being Americans when we nuked Japan. We ensured our contiued existence, and put an END to the bad guys.
This is not to say that we should be committing violence, here. What I am saying is that unilateral disarmament isfor losers. I thought McCain was going to do that, and pull a Bob Dole-like 36% of the vote. Instead, he chose to fight.

27 Best of luck to anyone, though I'm a little skeptical.

If you don't mind me suggesting something else -

Annoy the media.

Your friends and liberals who you know might tune you out after a couple e-mails (at least if they're sent cold). What someone could also do, for example, is create a website showing all of the Palin smears that have been reported in mainstream news-outlets (and whether or not those outlets have bothered to issue corrections). In addition, you could e-mail them daily until they issue corrections. Basically, just shove it in their face regarding what they are doing.

This would also give you an easy way to rebut a troll by just posting a link to the site when one of the smears is mentioned on the internet.

32 “First they came for the Republicans,

Yeah, I am not a republican.
But regardless of this election’s result,
I know that I fought with them.
Idea: Simply wearing a Palin and/or McCain emblem is a brave act that will help demonstrate that their supports exist and are not afraid of the Obama zombies. Give it a try.

Posted by: ArandomPerson at September 20, 2008 04:55 PM (2PwTK)

33 Just a couple of tips. Use 'em as you see fit:
Source EVERYTHING. An unsourced assertation is a fart in the wind. If you're doing things via email, cite longhand publication/date/author format. Email spam filters eat link-heavy emails with multiple recipients.
Quote in context. Out of context quotes will give you a temporary advantage, but you look like a dipshit when the context is raised (cf Charlie Gibson.) If you have to quote something out of context to make it fit, don't quote it. It will ALWAYS backfire eventually.
Obama is the opponent, but the MSM is the enemy. Blogs and alternative media exist because the MSM is in dereliction of duty. Point out where they are liars, where they're in the tank for a candidate. Be merciless and savage. The trust of the public is their stock in trade.
Be honest and practice full disclosure. Don't be a moby. Don't pretend toward objectivity. Let whoever it is you'readdressing know right away that you're an in-the-bag conservative. Then present your case. Axelrod and the MSM are liars and frauds, and can only be taken down by honesty. Honest disclosure alerts an audience that you're making a good-faith argument and someone who is willing to be persuaded will give you the time of day. If they're a braindead progressive, you won't have to waste your time.
YMMV

34 The media, individual reporters, their biases, errors, mistakes and their intentional lies have to become part of the story as well. It is no longer enough to say the media got something wrong. We need to be contacting individual reporters pointing out to them what thy got wrong and asking fr a response. The vast majority won't respond. Some will. Those that will should have their response quoted and printed on a blog. If you happen to have camera and are near a situation where reporters are covering a story...train the camera on the reporters. The reporters should be every bit as big a story from now on as the news they invent. And the Standard and the NRO and FOX as well have to understand that thier failure to cover these issues ( reporters biases) will be a bar to future subscriptions, donations and viewership. It is sad it must be this way. It must.

46 A piece of advice for fellow morons here.
Most people don't read political blogs. So the basic stuff we know about is the stuff that most normal Americans who can still have their minds changed don't know about.
~ ABC and Charlie Gibsonchopped upPalin's interview, and misquoted her on her prayer?
~ Palin actually supported sex-ed with contraception?
~ William Ayers who?
~ Obama supporters did what to a Chicago radio station?
I think we forget that most people aren't political junkies. (And probably much the wiser for it.)We need to let these folks know that they have been directly lied to by the media, or indirectly by refusing to report the truth.
And important, real life isn't the political blogworld. Don't flame the other side, or try to score a point or "win." Just get your point across. We have the advantage because the facts are on our side.

<b>Cocksuckers. </b>

As I commented a little earlier on Ace's "Warning" post, I don't really mind <i>cocksucker</i> apart from the fact that I see it as an "illogical" insult.

But since some people object to it (especially if it's applied as a slur to a crazy slimeball who also happens to enjoy administering fellatio in real life, such as Andrew Sullivan), might I suggest <b>felcher</b> (or "assfelcher," to perfectly match the "cocksucker" template) as an alternative?

Unlike the objectively low-risk, widely popular, and overall agreeable custom of cocksucking, <b>felching</b> (that is, sucking semen from the anus of someone who has recently been embuggered) has almost nothing going in its favor. Besides being just plain nasty, it takes the venerable metaphors of butt-kissing/brown-nosing to a whole new level; plus it's an extremely bad idea from a medical perspective, since it combines the HIV risk of "barebacking" with the Hepatitis A risk of oral/anal contact; and finally it's considered a weird and fringe-y practice even within the Gay Communitytrade;.

Buy the paper, fire the editorial board, make it clear that newspaper reporting will be fair and balanced, and fire anyone who doesn't want to go along with it.
I would think that there would be a conglomerate of billionaire Republicans who could easily put something like this together.
And to those who believe that print newspapers are going to be extinct soon - you are 100% wrong. Democrats are already talking about government subsidies to newspapers because they are "important tools of a free society". Newspapers will not go away.

Bring up Ayers as a positive for change, bring up Reverend Wright's angry racist anti-American rants as an example of the great change that America has in its future. Talk about the land deals Biden and Obama had as an example of how well they handle money. Talk about how the guys who ran financial institutions into the ground are Obama's financial advisors, as an example of how they learned from their mistakes.

63 Bart @ : "The Bush admin is in charge of the Justice Department, the IRS, etc. Why isn't he helping McCain more, or at least putting the kibosh on Obama for these threats?"

Well Bart, here are some possible reasons:

[a] assuming Ace is describing reality here, then perhaps it has something to do with President Bush's general deferential attitude towards US laws and a genuine belief in not abusing the powers of office.

Since the second phrase in [a] doesn't accord with anything we know about President Bush, then I think you have to consider the possibility that Ace has passed onto you the latest Winger bilgewater that passes for "talking points" in this election cycle.

[c] Not surprisingly, the Wingosphere is lit up with this particular line of hoo-haa, which tends to bring into issue whether Ace is treating his readers as true friends and valued allies, or as Tools.

[d] History is strongly on the side of "Tools", but nonetheless, even in a dimension such as the Wingosphere where its favored nominees typically have come second to the record of accuracy and reliability of a permanently stopped clock, it's wise to check for other signs.

[e] Oh, here's one Bart, and it's even implied in your comment: If Ace [or more accurately the higher up who has caused this moronic meme to be spread thru Zombieland today- which in fairness could be Ace, but not awfully likely], are giving you a fair and accurate portrayal of reality, then of course it's important to note that no Democrat, not Obama, not the DNC, not the entire party, not the entire left side of the political spectrum, has the authority to do any such thing - and so the reason we see the Bush DOJ refraining from doing anything about it is simple:

Not Obama, not any of them ARE doing any such thing.

See Bart, in reality world, there are things like logic, reason, inference, and evidence, whereas as in the Magic Kingdom of which AoSHQ is a dedicated member, there's one tool, and to it everything is a nail.

The 8 years to follow may help you understand, Bart. If not, then at least give your children a chance to study science, not religiocity or hate.

Guys, as you can guess, the Trollbusters have made an appearance this evening. I'd edit this post, but DD has such a complete lack of coherency that it almost resembles modern art, in that monkeys-flinging-shit kind of way. If anyone would like further posts dealt with more harshly, please leave it in the comments, and we'll see to it. Also, if anyone has any other good suggestions for disgusting biological acts that Erg or DD might undertake, please leave them in separate posts from the actual discussion of the topics.

92 At the risk of throwing the AOSHQ commenters' stylebook right out the window, let me get evangelical on you for a moment. I was a teenager when I noticed that people giving us the news aren't so much into the five Ws as much as they are into some apparent hidden agenda. If people can be afraid of Bilderbergers or the Illuminati, they can certainly be wary of the MSM. I was into my 30s before it really gelled with me that the MSM just makes stuff up at its pleasure. Not once in a while, but routinely. I turned 40 before I really got what the Bible meant by saying that the Enemy is in charge of this world for the time being, and that those possessed with The Truth are the light of the world. I get it now. I'm over the unfairness of it. I understand the playing field/field of battle and my place on it.

What I mean by the preceding "Evangelical Minute" is that I'm far past being amazed at the unfairness and disingenuousness (now there's a good word) of the American press and instead accept my role as one standing on the wall and protecting what is good and right, at least as well as I can discern it. I don't know another way to approach the current state of information dissemination in America than to suggest that you must, must, must know what you believe, and why you believe it, and have the sources to back you up in everyday conversations and blog posts, etc. In other words, conservatives have to be better at arguing and explaining than the other side. Nothing new there.

Remember the last presidential election? We gloated when W won, not because John Kerry is a vile person -- I disagree with him on most things and don't particularly like him, but neither do I particularly hate him -- we gloated because we'd not seen a victory for Bush, or even a defeat of Kerry; we saw a defeat of the MSM.

The MSM doesn't want to repeat that defeat. Embrace the notion that you will forever be called a racist, a rube, an idiot, and evil. Every young person raised in a conservative househould who happened to matriculate in most of America's colleges knows what that feels like. Get over that, and be yourself.

So it comes down to that, I think. Be yourself, proudly, to everyone you meet.

And take Ace's advice and get more involved.

That generally doesn't work, by the way. Wendy McCaw bought the Santa Barbara News Press a few years back and tried that. The crybaby lefties that infest this town freaked out, and before the firings started in earnest, the editorial staff started the unionization process, specifically to throw a poison pill into the process.
You can expect similar temper tantrums with the NYT in that scenario.

98 "If those actually in possession of relevant information refuse to disclose it, the public -- the jury -- is justified in assuming the hidden information is adverse to the parties involved."

Agreed. But I don't have the time to put the packages together.

Feed me packages, which I can email. Perhaps a blog could be set up, which doesn't allow comments, and is clean and neutral, which summarizes attack points. And some of the bloggers on the right could have access, and post clean summaries . Then I could mail out links. Again, site ouwld need to be clean.

ALSO, if we did it that way, we would NOT want coordination between the bloggers with access, other than censure. We hit above our weight class because we are not vertical like the sinistiphere (like the state they want.)

102 Re: Sarah Palin, smears, this is the definitive debunking site:

http://tinyurl.com/6b3mqq

Also, FactCheck.org has a special page set up for Palin rumors. It's also a good site to monitor in general for exaggerations on our own side, so that we can take them into account when we attempt to discuss this stuff with our friends. (And we should, unfortunately, try to make ourselves watch the Obama ads to see what lines of attack they're opening up.)

The official John McCain website has a segment for signing up as a volunteer:

http://tinyurl.com/3zof4h

My local campaign office tells me to stay in California, because it's going to go "into play." Sure. After the great pumpkin appears.

The national campaign suggests that we travel to battleground states if we can, for 10 days or so before Election Day.

Note:

1) If you want to do this, remember to fill out an absentee ballot in your own state;
2) Coordinate with the national campaign--e.g., I'm signed up to go to Nevada, because I can drive there (I can't afford to travel to Pennsysvania or Ohio, unfortunately).
3) They actually don't pay travel expenses, though supposedly they're going to give me housing tips. (If it's near Vegas, I'll try to crash with friends. If it's elsewhere, at least I should be able to save money by staying at a cheap motel.)

The campaign won't give out a list of "battleground states" for obvious reasons, but we all know what they are--Ohio, New Hampshire, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Colorado, New Mexico, Oregon, maybe New Jersey. Here's the map:

http://tinyurl.com/4kuk2x

And, of course, if you're working so many hours that you can't go to a battleground states, that might mean you're making money--which you can always donate to the McCain campaign, or some trustworthy PAC (Newt Gingrich, Fred Thompson, whatever).

Even something simple like going to see An American Carol if it opens in your town could indirectly serve to keep the far left and the Coastal limo liberals (but I repeat myself) on defense.

So, the NAACP is no longer tax exempt? How about all the churches that only have one party speak... are they all taxable now too? Of course not. Because the standard claimed by the quote in this story is clearly bullshit.

Oddly the reporter didn't bother to verify if this was factual, or provide any examples... and by oddly I mean "perfectly expected that the Obama-driven media is deliberately avoiding reporting any facts that might make Obama look bad".

Welcome to our world liberal Clinton Democrats, we have been dealing with the progressive left tyrannya hell of a lot longer than Hillary's two yearcampaign for President.

I would also add that after this stunt pulled by Democrats, after Sandra Bernhard, Bill Maher, Naomi Klein etc etc it is fair to say that Jews are no longer the most persecuted people on the planet...I think it fair to say that the most persecuted are evangelicals (which I think are really Baptist however Jimmy Carter was a Baptist so I think the Left created the term Evangelical in order to persecute that which they hate the most)

106 if phoning strangers isn't for you, try word of mouth. Sure works for rumors. My mom called while ago, and in the course of conversation, casually said "I hate that woman." Knowing her, that covered a wide range of the female population. Turns out to be Sarah Palin. When I asked why, she told me that she and her senior friends were appalled at the cost of keeping the 5 Palin kids under Secret Service protection. I thought I'd heard 'em all. That was a new one. Lame. Lame. Lame.
I told her that Sarah Palin was the only political woman I could think of who had made it without the coattails of a husband or father. Think Clinton, Pelosi, Feinstein, Dole, Boxer, et. al. Palin joined the friggin' PTA, for God's sake. That was all it took for Mom to fall in love. Admittedly, she's always seemed easy in that department. But I guarantee that's tea-time conversation tomorrow. Try it.

108 If you think that conservatives don't like "getting in the faces" of the opposition, you should watch FOX News more. Both Democrats and Republicans have their outlets. Traditional print media and some TV news is biased to the left; talk radio, email, and FOX belong to the right. When you claim that liberals squash your voice in all arenas, you're not just being disingenuous, you're lying through your teeth (or your fingertips, as it may be).

I am a fiscal conservative, a free-market guy, and a proponent of military force when necessary, so I'm a Republican in the traditional sense. But over the past decade, I have become disillusioned by the ridiculous, overtly false and deceptive tactics that Republicans have adopted as part of their "grassroots strategy." When Republican bloggers and media circulate verifiably false claims about Obama's views on whites, for example, they are no better than Obama's lawyer thugs. What's worse, the Republican base makes no bones about it, and are almost proud of being indiscriminate in their decisions. It's a shame, because I thought our country stood for more than that. I would expect that Republicans, who proudly proclaim to be "country first," would maintain the higher level of integrity.
