Alinskyite Super PAC’s Crusade to Take Down Michele Bachmann

Pages: 1 2

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) is now in the crosshairs of the radical left-wing Credo Super PAC which jettisoned an earlier pledge not to target any female congressional candidate in the upcoming election.

Bachmann “has said more hateful and downright crazy things than just about anyone else in Congress,” said community organizer Becky Bond, president of Credo Super PAC.

Bachmann is the “Queen of Crazy,” according to Credo’s website. The PAC is attacking Bachmann because, among other things, she believes the U.S. Constitution limits the powers of the federal government, is an outspoken Christian, opposes same-sex marriage, believes manmade global warming is a myth, and wants to reform Medicare and Medicaid.

The well-funded political action committee was created by Credo Mobile, the wireless reseller that donates part of its profits to left-wing groups such as the George Soros-funded Media Matters for America, ACORN-affiliated Project Vote, Color of Change, and the Sierra Club Foundation. Credo Mobile boasts that it has given upwards of $70 million to left-wing groups since 1985. Credo Super PAC has raked in nearly $2 million so far, according to the Federal Election Commission database.

Barely three months ago Credo was very reluctant to include Bachmann in what it calls its “Take Down the Tea Party Ten” campaign. The PAC declined at that time to gun for the conservative champion and Tea Party leader, out of deference to the Left’s phony anti-GOP “war on women” narrative and because its leaders didn’t want to antagonize female voters.

“There’s no shortage of Tea Party women but if you look at this picture, one of our main themes, and most of our volunteers, frankly, are women,” Credo Mobile president Michael Kieschnick said June 18 during a panel discussion at the Campaign for America’s Future’s Take Back the American Dream conference in Washington, D.C. “We want to be able to go after Independent women [voters] in a year where the House has been ferociously anti-women. That’s why we’re doing it.”

Kieschnick did, however, qualify his statement. “I wouldn’t say we would never, ever do a woman but our structural bias is to start with all men.”

He also said Credo would only target candidates that were “beatable” — which makes Credo’s decision to open fire on Bachmann perplexing. (Kieschnick is a member of George Soros’s Democracy Alliance, a shadowy donors’ collaborative that aims to turn America into Greece.)

In announcing Credo’s assault on Bachmann, Bond cited the three-term lawmaker’s “weak primary showing.” Credo supporters’ “overwhelming demand” for Bachmann’s  head convinced the PAC to go after her, Bond said.

In fact Bachmann won her August primary election with more than 80 percent of the vote in a three-way race. She is also the only one of the “Tea Party Ten” whose name does not appear on the RealClearPolitics list of House seats most likely to switch parties. Moreover, Bachmann’s campaign and Leadership PAC have together raised an impressive $17 million this election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Credo failed to respond to this skeptical reporter’s requests for comment. The PAC’s clam-up comes after the Obama campaign ordered high-level Democrats not to give interviews to conservative media outlets.

    They are using classic fascist tactics of false blame and hate mongering

    • amused

      that's right and they're copying them directly from the conservative super pacs …lol…whats good for the goose is good for the gander . ever heard of ALEC ?

      • fiddler

        You're irelevant. The scary thing is you don't see it, or worse, refuse to.

      • Omar

        Amused, have you read The New Leviathan? That book explains how leftists organizations earn much more money than conservative ones.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        ALEC Baldwin? The obese sack of SHlTler turd rate actor?

        Never heard of him.

  • Mach1Duck

    Would you believe the Democrats have erected their own problems. And I am putting this as politely as I can.

  • Gene W 1938

    The DNC just proved their hatred for God [albeit they edited the words 'God' back in] and Michele Bachmann is too Godly for them. I pray that she will have a the support of every person who hates Satan and Satans mineons.

    • fiddler

      Indeed Michelle Bachmann is a godly woman. She is a real fighter. Her detractors show themselves as like the "Original Liberal".

  • Freedom1

    These people are evil! They want to stop the tea party candidates because they fear them. Soros wants to take America down, it's been his life's dream. People can't believe these bullies/alinskyites. I get there emails and mailers, somehow I got on there list but it's good to know what they are doing. We need to help these constitutional candidates who are trying to be the voice of the people.

    • Jim

      Did not Soros flee to some tax haven? ; perhaps the same one they accused Romney of using.

      • amused

        Soros aint running for President

        • fiddler

          Wow! How astute! Why even I am amused by that.

          • amused

            because you're stupid fiddler , because your stupid . ps learn how to construct a sentence old boy .

        • davarino

          sure he is, and we all know it.

      • fiddler

        Looking for the lowest common denominator eh Jim. A desperate stab at moral equivalence.

      • SCREW SOCIALISM

        Gold Digger John Kerry and his rich wife (her first husband made the fortune) need to be investigated. Any off-shore bank deposits?

  • Jim

    The Alinsky like folks must think Bachmann is a bigger threat to them than Jay Leno thinks she is.

  • Anamah

    Credo Mobile is a bad phone company. They may be very interested to collect private life data. And they distort and use to harm and destroy people. Something seems to be wrong with them… they are part of a dishonest political business. I believe not only Soros… but also Van Jones is there, so you can figure out what kind of problems you can have as their costumer.

  • amused

    well atleast now there is a level playing field ….BOTH sides have engaged super pacs to bring down select targeted politicians . what's everone whining about ? you can llok for Karl Rove in your garbage heap .

    • fiddler

      Sorry dude, but it it ain't the same. Have you looked into Alinsky's book Rules for Radicals? He dedicates the book to Lucifer. That's a fact. Are you going to say that the right does the same?

      What you desperately look for is what I call the Skewed Measure: "Their "ounce" equals our "ton"". As long as you can find the "ounce" that makes them "just as bad" and therefore equivalent. Then you can amuse yourself by the "equivalency" and bask in your superior knowlege. Ain't putting on over on ole Amused, no sir.

  • CraigTX

    So, how do the cosumers that provide Credo's livelyhood go on the offensive? In other words try to hit them in their pocketbook.

  • umustbkidding

    I would have voted for her as president but I think we need her even more in the congress.
