AFP Unleashes New Attack Campaign On Obama

Barack Obama speech hand 2 SC AFP Unleashes New Attack Campaign on Obama

We all remember the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known as “The Stimulus.”  It was a $831 billion government goodie bag that had lofty projections of unemployment dropping below 8% and robust economic growth at 4% if it were passed by Congress.  Republicans in Congress had took a shellacking in the two previous election cycles and seemed ill-equipped to fight what was, as George Will states, unabashed political opportunism driving the funding of unpalatable pet projects that were then seen as “stimulative.”  Well, unemployment has been over 8% for well over 26 months and economic growth this year is at a paltry 2-2.3%.  This serves as another episode in the annals of Obama’s failed policies.

However, with a bill so enormous, corruption and waste were inevitable factors.  It appears that Frederich Hayek’s quote that “the curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design” rings true with this administration.  Americans for Prosperity has developed an ad campaign based around Hayek’s statement, which they hope will influence voters this election year.

They have followed up on their Solyndra ad and released a shocking and disturbing trailer detailing how billions of our taxpayer dollars were sent overseas while millions of Americans struggled in this miserable economic climate.  It states that $2.3 billion dollars in tax credits for green energy went to foreign countries. $1.2 billion was sent to a solar company to build a plant in Mexico.  Another half a billion to an electric car company in Finland.  In all, $34 billion dollars were wasted on clean energy initiatives, and Americans were left paying for it by exporting possible employment opportunities overseas.

American for Prosperity is focusing to bring this message of deceit and failure to eight states that are critical in the 2012 election.  It involves a mutli-tiered campaign utilizing new media, cable, and network outlets in Virginia, Ohio, New Mexico, Nevada, Florida, Colorado, Michigan, and Iowa.  Tim Phillips, President of AFP, hopes that this ad will influence swing voters come November and has also planned an extensive grassroots campaign which will be kicked off in Grand Rapids, Michigan starting in late April.

When I asked about why Pennsylvania was not on the list of states targeted in AFP’s campaign, New Media Director Stephanie Fontenot stated that it was simply a matter of resources and that while energy is a highly salient issue in PA due to the Marcellus Shale, they are going to focus on the initial eight states at the moment.  However, she did mention that it does not mean that PA is off the table for future events.

State Directors have already begun strategizing in Virginia and Florida.  Audrey Jackson, the Virginia AFP State Director, has already planned rallies in McLean, Charlottesville, and Glen Allen detailing how this president’s green energy initiatives are “tanking” America.  In Florida, AFP State Director Slade ‘O Brien stated how energy was critical to Floridians who run their air conditioners nine months out of the year.  He wants to convey a message of hypocrisy that surrounds the Obama Administration on energy concerning the president’s 2008 promise to have an “all of the above” energy policy that is less dependent of foreign oil.  He aptly gave the example of how Obama bashed more traditional forms of energy, such as coal, with his refusal to issue more permits that has hurt the industry.  Or Obama’s failure to fully approve the Keystone Pipeline and offering $2 billion dollars to Brazil to jumpstart their offshore oil exploration program.  As a result, AFP Florida will hold a town hall meeting in Naples on May 1st and a rally in Tampa on May 3rd to address these issues.

In all, AFP is gearing up for war with the meanest, toughest, most vicious political team the conservative movement has ever faced.

    Please read the entire article:
    As Barack Hussein Obama’s real (internal) poll numbers continue to plummet into oblivion, Obama and his increasingly complicit Congress secretly pass laws that will enslave, incarcerate and even murder their fellow Americans—for the explicit purpose of those who are currently in power remaining in power. It is now becoming clearer and clearer that both the Marxist-Democrats and their RINO brothers and sisters may not allow the 2012 elections to occur.

    The latest anti-liberty and unconstitutional atrocities include but, are not limited to, some of the following items:

    1. DHS still lists Christians, anti-abortionists, homeschoolers, libertarians, conservatives and military rank and file as terrorists. Note: Islamists are still not included on the list

    2. Christian preachers are now being arrested, and often beaten up, by police. A few preachers who have been arrested include two Houston pastors who were arrested for (legally) preaching against homosexuality on the same corner for the past two years. One of the police officers told them that they were ‘doing nothing wrong’. That was just before the cops grabbed their video camera, forced them to the ground, placed them in handcuffs and took them to the station. The charges against them are unclear but, appear to include preaching a message the Houston cops didn‘t like. However, WND reports: “Their hearing will be in Houston Municipal Court, which is run by [lesbian] Barbara E. Hartle, who, according to the Dallas Voice, is listed by the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund as “one of only a few out members of the Texas judiciary.” WND also reports that Pastor Michael Marcavage, founder of the evangelistic Repent America ministry, was placed on the FBI’s terrorist watch list for “nonviolent religious speech which government officials perceive as [merely] controversial.” Controversial? Being controversial is now a crime? In another incident, Pastor Rives Grogan and his 11-year-old son were illegally arrested for preaching against abortion in a public (and allowed) free-speech zone.

    3. The most recent and titanic infringement on the rights of ALL US citizens is a bill (National Defense Authorization Act-NDAA). Although Section 1032 subsection (b) (1) and (2) of S 1867 (passed in secret and behind closed doors) states that US Citizens and legal resident aliens are not subject to military incarceration, US Senators (including now self-outed Marxist Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham) are gleefully interpreting Section 1031 to include ALL US citizens being subject to “Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.” In other words, we may now experience what those recently nationwide refurbished FEMA camps look like. This is no longer conspiracy theory, folks. Senators Carl Levin (D-MI), John McCain (R-AX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) amongst many others have now not only threatened all of us with arrest but, are threatening the very foundations of what used to be OUR country. The masks have come off of our elected officials and most of them now resemble either Josef Stalin or Adolph Hitler.

    Every totalitarian government starts out in almost the identical way. First, it begins with some sort of political correctness indoctrination, then it begins taking away liberties a little at a time, then it explains that it can make decisions (including your money) for you better than you can. It decides that it can not only indoctrinate your children better but, can raise them better that you. Vladimir Ilyich Lenin said: “Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

      I, actually, don't know what to say. I have two contradicting opinions(?)..
      1) Obama has no intentions of leaving the WH;
      2) We are having Romney shoved down our throats:
      If you are for Romney turn this around. What IF you were sent a Poll that was already "fixed" as Obama as the President, and there was nothing you could do to change it? You have more ethics than that. I know you are a Person of character and want everyone to vote for their conscience.
      It is a poll to vote for your dream team. ONLY, when I tried to "drag" New't photo in the position where they had "Romney's Photo" it wouldn't allow me to replace Romney with Newt or anyone else for that matter. It would allow me to drag the photo to VP position. I immediately hit "return to the sender" with this in the subject line: "Do not shove Romney down our throats". I then made this viral as well as uploading it on several web sites.
      When my friends then tried to "hit return" to send the same message to "who ever" made it impossible for us to "have a choice" of OUR OWN PRESIDENT….it finally came back "un-deliverable" because they shut us out!
      I then, went back to the site below. There was a comment section in the upper right hand corner, and we all typed in "DO NOT SHOVE ROMNEY DOWN OUR THROATS!"
      Come to find out….This was done by George Soros and friends. He is in bed with Soros….do you want another President on puppet strings? Soros has warrants out for him in several countries including Russia.

      Like, I said, you are an ethical person, and I know you DO NOT believe it is right to have our President Chosen FOR US.
