Obama’s Campaign Bully Brigade Rides Again

Pages: 1 2

It seems to me no small coincidence that this disclosure charade comes just as numerous tea party organizations are reporting that the Internal Revenue Service has targeted them for audits. According to Colleen Owens of the Richmond (Va.) Tea Party, several fiscal-conservative activist groups in Virginia, Hawaii, Ohio and Texas have received a spate of IRS letters. The missives demand extensive requests to identity volunteers, board members and … donors.

This is B.O.’s M.O. His bully brigade did the same to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and its donors during the November 2010 midterms as payback for the organization’s ads opposing the federal health care takeover. And in 2008, Obama’s allies at a Soros-tied outfit sent out “warning” letters to 10,000 top GOP givers “hoping to create a chilling effect that will dry up contributions.” Witch hunt leader Tom Matzzie, formerly of Soros-funded MoveOn.org, bragged of “going for the jugular” and said the warning letter was just the first step, “alerting donors who might be considering giving to right-wing groups to a variety of potential dangers, including legal trouble, public exposure and watchdog groups digging through their lives.”

Matzzie also advertised a $100,000 bounty for dirt on conservative political groups “to create a sense of scandal around the groups” and dissuade donors from giving money. The effort was cheered by Accountable America adviser Judd Legum, founder of Think Progress — the same group that led the attack on the Chamber of Commerce and is run by Podesta’s Center for American Progress. Just as with the Obama super PAC led by former White House officials, Matzzie’s group “Accountable America” was a 501(c)(4) nonprofit entity that shielded the identity of its donors.

Oh, and remember this? In 2008, St. Louis County Circuit Attorney Bob McCulloch and St. Louis City Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce, both Obama promoters, threatened to bring criminal libel charges against anyone who spread what they considered “false criticisms” of their Dear Leader.

It is no small exaggeration to conclude that Team Obama’s dead aim is to chill conservative speech and criminalize conservative dissent. All Americans for prosperity must push back with one voice: No, you can’t.

    Intimidation and bullying?? The hell you say!! Is anyone surprised by this?? It's the typical Leftist Progressive set of tactics. They can use any dirty, nasty, underhanded trick known but cry foul when they get a taste of their own medicine. Hypocrites!!

    What did Andrew Breitbart say? We used to be intimidated, but not anymore! These people are the scum of the earth. They perpetuate human misery while donning the progressive mantle. Hate is too kind a word for what I personally feel for them.

    The pity is that if the Republicans make a clean sweep and the will of the majority is given the
    establishment Republicans will block retribution for leftist violations of election law and criminal
    conduct. Our Republic will not be safe as long as the leftist/socialist/communist traitors to freedom
    are allowed to be free within our society undermining our Naitonal culture and values……….William

    Eligibility is a huge worry for some. The Student Loan Forgiveness Act’s repayment and forgiveness arrangement only applies to federal student loans. The Student Loan Ranger frequently distinguishes between federal and private loans and gives information on relief for federal loans that is already available.

    • Student loans can be confusing, with many uncommon types and and servicers. Consolidation exemplifies this perplexity. There are many solutions, but only one retains federal protections like income-driven repayment plans, deferments and forbearances, and forgiveness.

    If you are consolidating federal student loans, consolidate into a Federal Consolidation Loan. These would be eligible for the Student Loan Forgiveness Act’s 10/10 arrangement and upgrades to Public Service Loan Forgiveness, and the interest rate cap would make a claim to new loans after the act is accepted. They also are eligible for the existing protections mentioned above.

    Keep in mind, however, that consolidating loans may reset any progress you’ve made with regard to relief like Public Service Loan Forgiveness. If you consolidate federal loans through a private service, they are not eligible for relief under the Student Loan Forgiveness Act, or for any at this time available relief.

    A common point of confusion: Just because you make payments to lenders like Sallie Mae doesn’t mean you don’t have a federal loan. Log into the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) to see if you currently have a federal loan; it’s worth knowing if you can access some relief!

    If you’re repaying student loans and want to simplify the process by making a single check every month, we’re delighted to help. Likewise, if you’ve fallen on financial hardship, Student Loan Consolidation can help you weather your status by lowering monthly payments and avoiding a default. If you’re already in default, we can help with that, too.

    Our Consolidation team are specialists in providing the accurate documentation needed to be submitted to the right channels. We have streamed lined the method and make it very simple. There are several programs available and will help you for the best one. Please make contact with us to see which Student Loan Debt Releif arrangement is best for you.
