DEFENDING THE WEST
PERSECUTION OF OBAMA’S POLITICAL FOES
Exclusive: Pamela Geller exposes deceit in president’s own campaign contributions

If you thought that the bombshell news story of the IRS targeting Republican and conservative groups had tempered the Obama administration’s power grab and determination to destroy all who oppose it, you are sadly mistaken. The hounding of conservative groups and organizations continues, with sanction and support from the major news organizations.

The ongoing persecution of Republicans and conservatives mirrors the attacks by the fascists of Europe on their opponents in the 1930s. The latest attacks are against conservative authors and/or groups that share a philosophy based on individual rights.

 

Those who are intent on punishing Obama’s political adversaries have claimed another victim. Dinesh D’Souza is the latest target. D’Souza, of course, is a longtime conservative pundit. He is the author of a wildly successful bestseller that was critical of Obama; he also directed the 2012 film, “2016: Obama’s America.”

D’Souza is charged with directing illegal contributions to the unsuccessful Senate campaign of Republican Wendy Long, who ran in New York in 2012 against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. According to Fox News, “D’Souza is accused of directing various donors to give contributions to Long’s campaign totaling $20,000, and then reimbursing them. Individuals are only allowed to donate a maximum of $5,000 to a candidate per election cycle.”

Preet Bharara, an Obama appointee as the U.S. Attorney for Manhattan, stated: “As we have long said, this Office and the FBI take a zero tolerance approach to corruption of the electoral process.”

Really? I broke numerous stories and documented millions in illegal campaign contributions to the Obama campaign, but nothing was ever done. Leftist “journalist” Abby Ohlheiser noted this in The Wire, but only long enough to sneer at it: “But as is perhaps appropriate for D’Souza’s predilection for conspiracy theories,” she wrote, some activists are putting the charges against D’Souza in contrast to a long-running theory first raised by Geller that three Palestinian brothers who apparently bought and resold $29,000 worth of Obama T-shirts in the Gaza strip (such a purchase counts as a campaign donation, and showed up in the FEC’s database), represent some sort of relationship between the president and Hamas, the Islamist group that governs the Gaza strip.”

Ohlheiser says the Obama campaign refunded the money, but some “bureaucratic error” kept the refunds from showing up. She believes this! “The Obama campaign said that despite some sort of bureaucratic error keeping their refunds off of the FEC’s records, they returned the 2008 donations once the error was discovered. Geller et al. say the administration is lying, presumably because of Obama’s secret Hamas love. A current FEC record search for the surname of the brothers in question indicates that all but $891 of those donations were refunded.”

All but $891? Why did they keep any of it? Isn’t it all illegal? And why are they allowed to get away with saying that they really did refund the money, but the refunds don’t show up because of a “bureaucratic error”? Can Dinesh D’Souza escape prosecution by saying that it was all just a “bureaucratic error”? Or is that defense valid only for Democrats?

Not to worry. Politico dismissed any idea that the indictment of D’Souza was politically motivated as one of my “conspiracy theories.” Yet fresh on the heels of that indictment came more awful news. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (a Democrat, of course) targeted conservative activist James O’Keefe with document requests and a subpoena. O’Keefe’s devastating video exposes led to the demise of the leftist activist group ACORN. Meanwhile, the IRS has made new rules for 501(c)(4) nonprofit groups that are designed to hurt tea-party groups and other conservative organizations, while leaving the big unions untouched.

And the Blaze reported that “the Internal Revenue Service has for the past two years been investigating an association of roughly 1,500 conservative-minded individuals in Hollywood, causing a few to wonder whether politics has played a role in the investigation. Named for Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, ‘Friends of Abe’ is a secretive and very private club for one of the rarest commodities in Hollywood: Conservative entertainers.”

This story about Friends of Abe shook me. I know FOA. I am a member. It is a social group of conservative-minded individuals in Hollywood that meets socially for a drink, a meal, a moment. Like-minded folks get together and breathe. And the Internal Revenue Service has been investigating for the past two years.

The government wanted the names of all the members. FOA, to its great credit, refused and continues to refuse.

It is ironic that the successors of those who raged against McCarthyism in the 1950s now actively engage in the same blacklisting practices.

Why hasn’t the IRS gone after, say, OFA (Obama’s fundraising arm, Organizing for America)? Headslap. Because they have no political affiliation.

This is all so frightening. America, put down the newly legalized weed that Obama is touting and join us in the fight for freedom.

1 Corinthians 15:35-58: The Resurrection Body

1 Corinthians 15:35-58
New Living Translation (NLT)
The Resurrection Body

35 But someone may ask, “How will the dead be raised? What kind of bodies will they have?” 36 What a foolish question! When you put a seed into the ground, it doesn’t grow into a plant unless it dies first. 37 And what you put in the ground is not the plant that will grow, but only a bare seed of wheat or whatever you are planting. 38 Then God gives it the new body he wants it to have. A different plant grows from each kind of seed. 39 Similarly there are different kinds of flesh—one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish.

40 There are also bodies in the heavens and bodies on the earth. The glory of the heavenly bodies is different from the glory of the earthly bodies. 41 The sun has one kind of glory, while the moon and stars each have another kind. And even the stars differ from each other in their glory.

42 It is the same way with the resurrection of the dead. Our earthly bodies are planted in the ground when we die, but they will be raised to live forever. 43 Our bodies are buried in brokenness, but they will be raised in glory. They are buried in weakness, but they will be raised in strength. 44 They are buried as natural human bodies, but they will be raised as spiritual bodies. For just as there are natural bodies, there are also spiritual bodies.

45 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.”But the last Adam—that is, Christ—is a life-giving Spirit. 46 What comes first is the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later. 47 Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven. 48 Earthly people are like the earthly man, and heavenly people are like the heavenly man. 49 Just as we are now like the earthly man, we will someday be like the heavenly man.

50 What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that our physical bodies cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These dying bodies cannot inherit what will last forever.

51 But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! 52 It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed. 53 For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies.

54 Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die, this Scripture will be fulfilled:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”
56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
