(WorldNetDaily)   World Net Daily crows about how they committed fraud by donating to Obama's campaign under the false name "Osama Bin Laden". Oh, and they donated money to Obama's campaign, too. Looks like they didn't think their cunning plan through at all   (wnd.com) divider line 191

Why wouldn't Obama take the donation? He already knows the dangerous Osama Bin Laden is dead.

Everything about binladens death is suspect including that no one alive saw his body and how the seal team members died right after the raid.


Wait, now there's some conspiracy theory that all the Seal team members were bumped off after the raid? That would have to be the worst conspiracy theory ever, as one has written a book... and i'm sure a quick Googling could answer for the others.

There was a helicopter crash that killed a number of SEALs not long after the bin Laden raid. The U.S. military has REPEATEDLY stated that they were from a different SEAL platoon than the guys who killed OBL.

That's probably what this idiot is thinking of.

That was mind-blowingly stupid. When, on occasion, I read a WND article my eyes will roll back in my head and I'll think "That's just dumb", but Aaron Klein has taken stupidity to a new level. People should read it as there is nothing we can say to properly convey just how moronic that article actually was.

I suppose they will now accuse Obama of building the website himself.

What's shocking is what the subby and many of you farkers took away from the article.

Descent is the highest form of patriotic in action here. The system is in place for them to do with as they will to prevent the most horrible political reality of all: their assumption the president will do whatever he will with the system. Because defying the law and making a mockery of the constitution is OK when you are doing it based on the perception the other guy is going to defy the law and make a mockery of the constitution.

2. you reminded people Osama is dead and Obama "got er done".

3. you pointed out the dangerous prospect of money coming from bad sources is not only totally legit but anonymous thanks to the GOP and their partisan SCOTUS

Thank you for your donations, WND.

Federal law requires Obama for America to use its best efforts to collect and report the name, mailing address, occupation, and employer of individuals whose contributions exceed $200 in an election cycle. Even though you may be contributing less than $200 this election cycle, we still request that you provide us this information when donating online.

They made their best effort. You just lied.

You're just a troll who has donated twice to the campaign of a man you detest.

Well played.

So let me get this straight, they're saying that if the donation is done out of the country (even if the address used for credit card verification is US), it's foreign money?

Given their scenario, they're saying no American citizen should be able to donate to a campaign from outside of the country. Wonder who would do that? Military members maybe? Yeah that's a great idea, WND, you should come out and say you don't want any American living abroad to be able to donate to a campaign back home.

Michael Czin, an Obama campaign spokesman, told the Post that FEC data was the result of "a minor technical error."

"All the ZIP codes and numbers are real and can be verified," Czin said.

However, if all zip codes are real, Czin has some explaining to do after the "Bin Laden" donation from a zip code based on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks.


Earlier in TFA:

In the case of this donation, the 91101 zip code is real but corresponds to Pasadena, Calif., and not Abbottabad, the Pakistani city in which bin Laden was found holed up in a compound.

:facepalm:

"If all zip codes are real, then why did you accept this donation from a real zip code? NAILED YOU."

I've sat here thinking and thinking trying to figure out what I'm supposed to be outraged about, and I'm stumped. I'm just not seeing it. Help me out here. It's an unsolicited donation. Do you think Obama is going to read down the list and go "That guy? Maybe I should change my policies about him,"? Does the Salvation Army base it's decision making on who throws change in the bucket? Or is 'brown people' just becoming such a conservative boogeyman that you can scare yourselves just by saying it?

Truth be told, this is small peanuts compared to previous fraud by the DNC.

Remember Johnny Chung, the guy who went to jail for funneling $366,000.00 from the Chinese military into Bill Clinton's election campaign? (In that case, the democrats did give the money back to the Chinese government after Chung went to jail for this.)

In short, I'm not concerned about a foreign national spending $5 or $10 on a campaign. It's illegal and it should be stopped, but it's not the end of the world. But when a foreign government does it, I get very concerned.

I'm not in the military, but I am a US citizen who's currently living overseas and has donated to the Obama campaign.

"Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, "Osama bin Laden" has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama's presidential re-election campaign."

All three of those factors would have disqualified the donation (or at least raised a red flag) for most campaigns because they have safeguards in place. But the Obama campaign labels the donor as a volunteer, and continues to ask for additional donations. 

Do you think this is the only fraudulent or illegal donation that has been given to the Obama campaign? Does it even matter to you? Would $1 billion in $199 increments from terrorists bother you? Ask yourself why Obama doesn't employ the same safeguards as other campaigns.

Or just stop thinking. It doesn't seem to be doing you any good.

The blase attitude here is pretty typical of Liberals who are caught violating the law.

Obama's campaign is accepting foreign donations in direct violation of campaign finance laws. WND donated $20 as a test. Who's to say that someone else didn't donate $20k?

WND is saying that the campaign isn't even doing basic filtering of foreign donations (via IP addresses).

So we have a campaign that isn't bothering to follow the law...just like an administration that goes off and kills americans overseas without trial. Yay! We support human rights - except for people we don't like.

Typical leftist hypocrisy. I'm not saying the right doesn't have their hypocrites. They do. But they're not as stupid as the left - they at least know they're being hypocrites.

Are you one of those "children of the world" types who think that nationality is passe?

I'm suggesting your faux concern is entirely dishonest and based solely on party politics. But you're right. It's not comparable. The Kochs are a much, much greater threat to democracy than the Chinese military could ever dream of being.

Apparently all the voting machines are rigged to only vote for Obama. And he is the only one who received any corporate campaign dollars. I guess Romney's running on pocket change and prayers?

The fact that the $19 you fraudulently donated (and only to the one campaign you don't like) was not investigated is not an outrage.

Maybe if you made a bigger donation people would be more shocked, but if you did that you might get caught and invalidate your entire article.

Maybe I do not understand the issue enough to be concerned. They put the fake address as California. If I told all of you I was writing this from Athens Greece or an Igloo in the Northwest Terrirories or from a cave out side of Cairo how would you doubt me? they said California so i would assume it came from some dude in California. An obviously fake address in CA but unless the automated system goes and looks at a Map how would the system know?

Kangaroo_Ralph:

"Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol
Wha'ts a Pakistani Internet Protocol? - Do they mean an ip address assigned to a Pakistan location?
WND cant even get their terminology straight, and last I checked Pakistan is still considered a friendly nation (despite some internal disagreements) so a transaction from their is no different than from a military base in Afganistan or the Embassy in Iraq.

and proxy server,

I read your post thru a proxy called Fark, which serves as a message aggregator. I can't tell what ip address you were using to post the comment I an responding to. Which also brings the question, how does what Pakistani ip address you are using even show if your going thru a proxy server?
If the proxy gives an ip that is valid for the country it is being used in, is not otherwise blocked or flagged as a suspected web site, and is not itself being used in a cyber-attack; why wouldn't it be accepted?

a disposable credit card
Did it have a valid credit card number? Did WND put funds on the card before using it? Was the
transaction validated by the credit processor? If not then WND also commited credit card fraud on top of wire fraud.

and a fake address,
With a valid Zip Code, which isn't even checked if the transaction is below a specific amount from a regular credit card. And usually has no zip code to match against on a gift card.

"Osama bin Laden" has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama's presidential re-election campaign."

If they had chosen "Ronald Reagan" or "Anonymous" it's still irrelevant. They admit above they used a disposable credit card. There is no name attached to a disposable card, just an amount of money that can be charged against until that pool of money runs out.


All three of those factors would have disqualified the donation (or at least raised a red flag) for most campaigns because they have safeguards in place. But the Obama campaign labels the donor as a volunteer, and continues to ask for additional donations. 

None of those factors would have disqualified the donation. They don't apply to a pre-paid credit card that is verified as having been purchased in the U.S. (by the company the card was bought from and the credit card processor)

What was the Romney campaigns response to the same donation amount from the same card?
Would it be better if the name given had been "Koch" or "Adelson" when giving an otherwise anonymous donation? Why not just give the money to one of the SuperPACs, where they don't have to disclose anything?

Do you think this is the only fraudulent or illegal donation that has been given to the Obama campaign?

Please explain how this was a fraudulent or illegal donation, given that:
1. It was made using a legally purchased credit card, and both campaigns have to use the same method of verification, which relies on a verified third party company to confirm the transaction?

2. Donations directly to a candidate are subject to monitoring under campaign finance laws, but donations to political action committees are not. Which would be easier to donate foreign money to?

3. Who would be stupid enough to spoof a donation to a politician using a traceable credit card?
(Yes, more difficult since it is pre-paid, but the location it was bought at an the amount of "credit" purchased is tracked and can be used in an investigation, especially if the card is used for more
than a single purchase).

4. Do you think campaigns should block ip addresses assigned to proxy servers?

Does it even matter to you? Would $1 billion in $199 increments from terrorists bother you?

It matters that you sound like you would rather believe the article as given rather than think about why their claims don't make sense, don't matter because of the way they went about doing the donation, and don't hold up to reality

Why would a terrorist organization want to make Visa (for instance) fifty million dollars richer by buying or using enough from pre-paid cards to make a billion dollars in payments at $200 apiece?

Ask yourself why Obama doesn't employ the same safeguards as other campaigns.

Ask yourself why you believe that they don't.


Or just stop thinking. It doesn't seem to be doing you any good.


Maybe you should start thinking. It helps cut thru the BS.

They weren't foreign donations. They were actually from here, PRETENDING to be from Pakistan.

They used a US zip code. Hell, they even admit that before proceeding to ask why the Obama site didn't pick up on their witty use of 91101 (which is Pasadena, CA).

Campaigns are required to use due diligence, but they aren't required to track down every single online donor to verify they aren't a dead terrorist mastermind.

You're upset because WND went through all this trouble to pretend they were journalists, but they did a shiatty job. If they had actually tried with both Romney and Obama's sites, rather than trusting reports that Romney's rejects similar donations, they'd have some claim to legitimacy. But they didn't.

I'm not even sure they committed any great fraud - they are American citizens, and contributed to an American election campaign. Their donation was legal - their only fraud is in claiming that the Obama campaign did anything wrong by taking it, and using a fake name.
But as the days to Obama's victory dwindle down, we can expect a lot of this desperate shiat.

What about when they tried to wiretap a Senator's office?

Or selectively edited tapes to make them look more incriminating?

Or tried to get a female journalist to go onto a sailboat full of sex toys and restraints for...uh...reasons.

O'Keefe and colleagues were arrested in New Orleans in January 2010 during an attempt to make recordings at the office of United States Senator Mary Landrieu, a Democrat. His three fellow activists, who were dressed as telephone repairmen when apprehended, included Robert Flanagan, the son of William Flanagan, acting U.S. Attorney of the Eastern District of Louisiana. The four men were charged with malicious intent to damage the phone system. O'Keefe said he entered Landrieu's office to investigate complaints that she was ignoring phone calls from constituents during the debate over President Barack Obama's health care bill. The charges in the case were reduced from a felony to a single misdemeanor count of entering a federal building under false pretenses. O'Keefe and the others pleaded guilty on May 26. O'Keefe was sentenced to three years' probation, 100 hours of community service and a $1,500 fine. The other three men received lesser sentences.

Huh. They didn't fight the charges as "journalists," they just plead down to a misdemeanor.

They're practically clones of Woodward and Bernstein.

Obama's campaign is accepting foreign donations in direct violation of campaign finance laws. WND donated $20 as a test. Who's to say that someone else didn't donate $20k?

WND is saying that the campaign isn't even doing basic filtering of foreign donations (via IP addresses).


Since when is IP address filtering a valid and reasonable method to determine whether someone can donate?

What if you live overseas but are a US citizen? You have to go find a US proxy or simply can't vote?

Speaking of proxies, a US proxy is all that's needed to bypass this filtering.

An IP address is hardly a valid method to determine where someone is located, and it's certainly not a valid method to determine whether they can legally donate.

They probably assumed the money was from the other Osama Bin Laden. That guy is really grateful to Obama. For the last decade he's been afraid to show his face in public, can't fly on a plane, constantly being harassed by bounty hunters and the CIA. But ever since Seal Team 6 shot the Al Queda leader dead, this other Osama has had a lot more freedom to move around, and most importantly, to move on with his life.

Leeds: So you think that some Americans chip in too much money into the political system and you propose that the "fix" for this situation is to allow foreigners to buy into our election process too?


Haha! Look at you making ridiculously wacky shiat up because your opinions are so asinine and transparently dishonest that it's your only hope. Oh, conservatives. You so silly.

This is ridiculous. What are they trying to prove here? They lied and said they lived in California and provided a corroborating zip code. Who cares where the IP said they were? They weren't there anyway. Should we be afraid that pakistani's using osama bin laden's name will donate $20 to Obama? Why?

Except Obama didn't break the law here. In fact, no one may have. This was a legal donation from a legal donor. There is nothing illegal about a legal, American donor donating from a foreign country.
Since the donation was under $200, the fake name, while childish and asinine, is probably not a serious criminal matter - and as it has already been proven in this thread, Romney's campaign also takes donations from foreign sources.
Nothing. You haz it.

Yeah, the whole problem of foreign money is how it would influence the candidate (I guess corporations are OK, though). How are you going to influence someone if they don't know who you are or where you are from?

Kangaroo_Ralph: What's shocking is what the subby and many of you farkers took away from the article.

Using a Pakistani Internet Protocol and proxy server, a disposable credit card and a fake address, "Osama bin Laden" has successfully donated twice to Barack Obama's presidential re-election campaign.

That doesn't bother you in the slightest. Enjoy the koolaid.


Because, of course, a donation service has the magical ability to determine the difference between a US citizen with a CA zip code donating while on vacation and a dickwad from WND.

Have you ever taken a programming class? Like, high-school level? You might want to try it.

OBAMA ACCEPTS 'OSAMA BIN LADEN' DONATIONS

Barack Obama, President and webmaster...

Oh, and FTFA:
The apparently foreign-based contributions were conducted as a test after a flurry of media reports described the ability of foreigners to donate to the Obama campaign but not to Mitt Romney's site, which has placed safeguards against such efforts.

One of the "media reports" in question:
Report: Romney's campaign better than Obama's at preventing foreign donations, but not perfect

Link

Sounds like WND thinks that because the Romeny camp asks if you're in the US and requires the security code from the credit card, that means that they are actively preventing foreign donations. Obama's site did just as much with the American citizen part by only giving options for US states and ZIP codes. Requiring the CVV just means that the person has the credit card in-hand, it has nothing to do with being foreign or not.

I know this goes without saying, but WND totally fails here.

It's almost as if WNDers are demanding some sort of certificate of authenticity for donations to Obama while NOT demanding the same proof for donations to Romney.

Sgt Otter: Slaxl: From the comments:

Drew Gasaway
Everything about binladens death is suspect including that no one alive saw his body and how the seal team members died right after the raid.

Wait, now there's some conspiracy theory that all the Seal team members were bumped off after the raid? That would have to be the worst conspiracy theory ever, as one has written a book... and i'm sure a quick Googling could answer for the others.

There was a helicopter crash that killed a number of SEALs not long after the bin Laden raid. The U.S. military has REPEATEDLY stated that they were from a different SEAL platoon than the guys who killed OBL.

That's probably what this idiot is thinking of.

I think you're confusing the 1996 financing controversy (Chinese financiers funneling money from the Chinese government) with the time (also in 1996) Al Gore had to return money to the Hsi Lai Temple (donations accrued during a temple visit fundraiser being reimbursed to the temple, violating the non-profit donation ban)

Nope. I am talking about the Clinton election and the "1996 financing controversy." The go-between was Johnny Chung and if you read the wikipedia article I linked in this post you will see that it says that the democrats returned the money to the Chinese.

Upon observing the information that you entered, I do not understand why you believe your test comparable to WorldNetDaily's test. WorldNetDaily used the name of a known terrorist and supplied a ZIP code that, while valid, is a reference to September 11. You supplied the name "NOT A TERRORIST" and a ZIP code that is not a reference to September 11. Clearly, the two submissions are entirely different, and thus establishes proof that President Obama's campaign is willfully accepting money from anti-american foreign agencies while Mr. Mitt Romney's campaign is a beleaguered underdog struggling to attract voters despite their utter refusal to engage in unethical or illegal practices.

Well they were both part of the 1996 financing controversy, I just missed the part about returning all the money in the Chung scandal as well. Good on the DNC, though there wasn't much choice in the matter. Either way, calling either the "Clinton approach" is a bit ridiculous. Clinton has an approach alright, but the business end of it is a moist cigar.

Here's the thing that gets me... WND is essentially saying that American citizens traveling abroad for ANY reason should not be allowed to donate to political campaigns. This would include diplomats, businessmen, vacationers, and MILITARY SERVICEMEN.

Why does WND hate our military?
 
2012-10-30 04:45:01 PM

Before being censored and threatened with bodily harm from WND forumgoers, one of them claimed to be serving right now and unable to donate at the time. Maybe for the best.

Dear advertiser,
I connected to your site via an ad on wnd.com. Worldnetdaily has been identified as a hate site by the Southern Poverty Law Center. While best known as the most severe of the "birther" sites, believing that the president is not an American born citizen, wnd also frequently tries to establish that the president is the anti-christ. This is not an honest difference of opinion. Wnd is morally abhorrent.
Are you aware of where your ads are placed? Are you also advertising on nazi, white supremacy, and pedophilia sites?
Please favor me with a reply.
