Claims Surfacing that Obama Campaign Illegally Solicited Foreign Donors via Social Media Website



"President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign has been soliciting foreigners for donations, an explosive report from the conservative Government Accountability Institute (GAI) shows. Those foreign donors are allegedly visiting the Obama campaign’s donation solicitation Web pages through a social media website the campaign controls, and through an outside website that serves mostly Internet users from outside the United States.
About 20 percent of visitors to the 'my.barackobama.com' social media website 'originated from foreign locations,' the report found. That Web address is owned and controlled by the Obama re-election campaign.
'At no point during the [website's] subscription process is a visitor asked whether he or she can legally donate to a U.S. election,' GAI notes.
'Once a visitor signs up, he or she immediately begins receiving solicitations for donations.
In fact, numerous foreign nationals report receiving solicitation letters and thank you emails from the campaign for their support. Some of these emails have been reposted on blog sites to encourage friends to click on the donate link or get their names on the email list...."   
Concisely, it is a Federal violation for foreign entities, to contribute, donate money or anything of value to a federal, state and/or local election.
Unfortunately, this scandal does not rest solely with the Obama campaign.  For years, foreign entities have been donating to election campaigns on all levels, i.e., federal, state and local.
In 2010, Barack Obama took a stand publicly against the receipt of illegal donations by foreign entities (video below) in spite of the fact that he accepted donations from foreign entities in 2008.






Since Obama appears to be the primary beneficiary of financial donations from foreign entities this election season, the anointed one has either had a change of heart when it comes to this law or considers himself above the law and the exception to the rule as proven by the solicitation below.

As reported by Katie Pavlich in her article entitled, Corruption: Exposing Barack Obama’s Illegal Foreign Campaign Money Loophole:
"...IT ALL ADDS UP
A large part of the Team Obama operation is outsourced. More than 200 domain names with the word 'Obama' in the web address have been purchased. The most significant of these websites may be Obama.com, which is owned by an Obama bundler in Shanghai, China with 'questionable business ties to state-run Chinese enterprises,' according to the report.
Obama.com was purchased in 2008, and, although Obama.com is owned by a third party, not the campaign itself, the site redirects its foreign traffic, a whopping 68 percent, directly to the official Obama for America campaign donation page. The Obama campaign’s official and main website, BarackObama.com, sees 43 percent of its traffic coming from foreign IP addresses....."   
We can expect, in the coming days, to hear plenty of spin by the Obama campaign, the lame stream media and propagandists as this scandal takes on a life of its own.
Regardless of the lies and distractions that are sure to come, nothing takes away from the fact that this law was intentionally violated by an administration that may prove to be the most corrupt administration in the history of the United States.
There is no limit to the depths of which Obama will sink to get another four years in office in order to complete the destruction and transformation of the United States.
Any politician who accepts contributions and/or donations from foreign entities, Obama included, is guilty outsourcing the future of our country, selling the nation and our children’s future to the highest bidder.
