(Pray for the next 29 days; pray for America then show your character with your vote November 6th, 2012.)
President Obama, 2010 State of the Union Address “I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, and worse, by foreign entities.”
President Obama now has a record—unemployment, deficit spending, soaring Federal debt. You know the story. But, 30 days before the polls close, a firestorm of Obama-tied lawlessness, scandal, deception and cover-up is about to burst into the world of every American. Oh the Obama campaign operation, the Obama Administration and the fraud media are working diligently and intensely on the cover-up and deception. But the lawlessness and scandal is too wide and broad and deep to contain completely. It is leaking out. Now, even that doesn’t matter, a bombshell from Shanghai exploded Monday. Let’s start with this Breitbart.com story:
Breitbart News obtained an advance copy of the bombshell report which reveals that the Obama.com website is not owned by the president’s campaign but rather by Obamabundler Robert Roche, a U.S. citizen living in Shanghai, China. Roche is the chairman of a Chinese infomercial company, Acorn International, with ties to state-controlled banks that allow it to “gain revenue through credit card transactions with Chinese banks.”
The unusual Obama.com website redirects traffic directly to a donation page on the Obama campaign’s official website, my.barackobama.com, which does not require donors to enter their credit card security code (known as the CVV code), thereby increasing the likelihood of foreign or fraudulent donations. The website is managed by a small web development firm, Wicked Global, in Maine. One of Wicked Global’s employees, Greg Dorr, lists on his LinkedIn page his additional employment with Peace Action Maine and Maine Voices for Palestinian Rights. According to the GAI report, 68 percent of all Internet traffic to Obama.com comes from foreign visitors.
And still more.
In 2011, Mr. Roche obtained one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in Washington, DC: a seat at the head table for President Obama’s State Dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao. How Roche—a man whose infomercial company hawks fitness equipment, cell phones, and breast enhancement products—landed a seat alongside Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former President Bill Clinton, Sen. John Kerry, former President Jimmy Carter, and Chinese President Hu Jintao remains unclear.
Since 2009, White House Visitor Logs list the name Robert Roche at least 19 times, despite the fact Mr. Roche’s primary residence is in China.
Mr. Roche, who is originally from Chicago, is a co-chair of the Technology Initiative for the Obama campaign.
According to Acorn International’s prospectus, the success of Mr. Roche’s company hinges on maintaining access to state-run media and “preferential tax treatments and subsidies” doled out by the People’s Republic of China (PRC):
Our business depends on our access to TV media time to market our products and services in China….PRC law is vague and is subject to discretionary interpretation and enforcement by PRC authorities…Loss of these preferential tax treatments and subsidies could have material and adverse effects on our results of operations and financial conditions.
In addition to the Obama.com redirect revelation, the Government Accountability Institute report—America the Vulnerable: Are Foreign And Fraudulent Online Contributions Influencing U.S. Elections?—exposes myriad gaping online security holes that stand to threaten the integrity of House, Senate, and presidential elections.

Steve Bannon, “43% of the traffic that cones to the Obama.com Web Site is international traffic.”
There are other news outlets and blogs picking this up; Althouse, for example.
Hannity on Fox News had a segment on this with Peter Schweitzer and Stephen Bannon, the founders of Government Accountability Institute (GAI) and its subsidiary, CampaignFundingRisks.com. I do not have the Hannity segment but Right Scoop does. Click on this Hannity program screen shot to watch the 5 minute segment.
As Wynton Hall noted, this is likely to touch members of Congress: House and Senate; Republican as well as Democrat. We will watch with interest to see how vigorously Congress moves to investigate.
