Obama Grassroots Group Using Newtown to Raise Money

by Keith Koffler on January 25, 2013, 11:26 am

Organizing for Action, the newly formed “grassroots” group that will help President Obama try to promote and pass his agenda, today sent out a fundraising and membership-building email that cites the Newtown massacre as a reason to “pull together” behind the president.

The email, which was sent out under Vice President Joe Biden’s name and is signed by him, includes a link to a page on the Organizing for Action website that asks people to provide their email address. The page has a separate link that takes viewers to another area of the website where they can donate.

In the message, Biden talks about Obama’s gun control agenda, and then he tugs at the heart strings:

Right now, President Obama is counting on you.

Each one of us needs to speak up and demand action. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a big city or a small town like Newtown, Connecticut. When our fellow Americans are victims of senseless violence, we all pull together as one American family.

Let’s get this done, folks.

Whether the action we take saves one life or 1,000, it matters.

Thank you,

Joe

Organizing for Action was created this month out of the Obama 2012 campaign and is believed to possess an email list more than 20 million strong and include thousands of activists.

How about the 55 million lives that have been aborted? I hope they’re not counting on my help….

Jcjdhicks January 25, 2013 at 1:05 pm

I have been wandering the same thing. All this talk about protecting the children and then I decided to look up the statistics for abortion and I was disgusted. 97% of abortions are done for convenience, 2% for medical reasons, and 1% for rape. I understand rape and medical abortions, performed at an early stage, but then again it isn’t that baby’s fault. 97% for convenience….time to step up and take responsibility for your actions. I also understand here is a lot of foster children that need homes, and you think having an abortion is fixing the problem? It is not a fix . To take a tragedy and use it for political gain, or to push an agenda is just wrong and immoral. I think our country needs to get back to the way it use to be.

CoverUpLeaked January 25, 2013 at 1:13 pm

Newtown was a PSYOPS event used to try and sell the public on these anti-gun laws. Learn the truth about what’s really going on in Washington with the Coup that was staged by unelected officials with the 2008 thrown election. Search Sarah Palin’s dirty little secret for the BIGGEST cover up in world history and Obama media blackout.

Liberals have no problems with the killing of hundreds of thousands of unborn babies each year, but ask the death penalty for some slug that rapes and murders a child and listen to them scream and yell about how that is “cruel and unusual punishment”. Figure that one out.

“Oh, love the closing parting shot – “bury the left”… Wonder in history where this has happened before… Hmmmm… Oh, frequently… Hmmmm… By whom pray-tell… Hmmmm…”

The fall of The Soviet Union, 1991, credit in large part to Ronald Reagan, RT. Glad I could point that out for you. There are more examples….really. Lots more.

Calling someone a “TROLL” is not “name calling” when it applies to a person’s actions, RT. Look it up, as pertains to a person leaving snarky, antagonistic reponses to folks in chat threads. Seems as though someone blew out your “candle of enlightenment” as well.

RT January 25, 2013 at 5:50 pm

@Ironhyde – Yikes – Lol – too funny. Providing a Troll with one of many definitions for a Troll… Hah, a sense of humor!!!

Of course, I know what a Troll is. And, regardless of ones actions, it is still a label. Not to lose you, but it is all about intent, motive, and context. BTW, I did not say I disagreed about the label being accurate or not… That said, it is my list. So, I am keeping it… Name Calling is on there… The list may grow…

Too bad you missed the irony of my reference to historical context on the “Bury the Left” close from ole atheist… I’ll leave it be. It may dawn on you later.

Shameless when you are referring to people, say, Obama or Biden; shameful when you are referring to their actions. Either one works.

I have not seen the movie “Office Space.” I rarely watch movies. It is my small and inconsequential protest against the hypocrisy of Hollywood.
I do believe you are urging people to exercise “critical thinking.”
My question for you and others on this thread:
Why does no one point out that the shooter at Sandy Hook was not the gun owner? How will additional registration/background checks/mental health assessments requirements address the this type of circumstance?

Playrighter January 25, 2013 at 4:05 pm

And today Emily’s List (the liberal group that kept pushing for the election of Democratic women to fight the evil GOP men) sent out an email asking people to sign on to say “Thank you” to Hillary Clinton — just in case their previous email castigating the GOP for being complicit in “violence against women”, and the DCCC email yesterday (also to thank Hillary) didn’t harvest enough email addresses.

This is a permanent and constant campaign to keep Democrats in power. This is NOT an even playing field.

Yes let’s discuss some real issues like our $1.2 trillion dollar plus deficits, our soon to be bankrupt entitlement programs and state pension systems or the fact the Senate has not even proposed a budget in 4 years. Please discuss RT how Obama is going to even reduce the deficit $1 when he has promised not to touch Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid and plans a massive spending binge on “investments and stimulus programs.
While we are at it, please discuss RT why arming the Muslim Brotherhood with the most advanced weaponry is a wise and thoughtful idea.
Please discuss RT why Obama is so financially irresponsible and unserious. On the most important issues (deficits, debt, economy, foreign policy) facing our country Obama is a pathetic joke who has no idea what he is doing.
Or in the absence of any serious and non-delusional discussion on those issues, STFU and go away.

OK TimW – I’m in.

Pick the issue – any issue you cited in your diatribe or select another one. I don’t care. I’ll respond – in detail.

Before you begin, read what you just wrote, you started out well with legitimate questions and then drifted off course… No use to have this exercise, if you start the process with “Obama is a pathetic joke who has no idea what he is doing… Save that for your closing arguments…

Go ahead – Start by (a) defining a problem as you see it, (b) cite your reasoning why you believe it is an issue, and (c) what will happen if the issue is not addressed. Lastly (d), if our president is going about it, i.e., “the issue” the wrong way, state the proper courses of action as you see it. Feel free to contrast historical precedents or weave in economic journals that support your positions. You can stop there or close as desired.

Thanks in advance for sharing.

The deaths at Sandy Hook, as remorseful as they are to so many people far beyond the victims’ circle of families and friends, represent .00000008% of the population of the United States. To enact any law based upon this one event is nothing more than knee-jerk reaction and an overt attempt to continue to push an anti-gun agenda. High-information, gun-owning, law-abiding citizens will not stand idly by and allow this to happen.

Ronald Demers January 25, 2013 at 12:10 pm

Starting with how FAST the B.O. crew “Sprang” into action on this gun issue. It’s almost like they had this entire scenario all planned out & were waiting for the next massacre. (Sarcasm) After all, in the last 30 yrs., sooner or later someone, usually unbalanced, is going to go ballastic in a public place ( usually) & start shooting. There’s no reason to assume it won’t happen time after time. But THIS time is the catalyst? Why? Nickel Mines children actually shocked me far more than this, having lived among Amish for many yrs.

Mass shootings are a fact of life.No one even wants to think about it, but we ALL know its’ true. We even have added a term into our lexicon when someone gets very upset-they “go postal.” Guns? Well, for 200 yrs. we had them & didn’t have this kind of desecration of our freedoms. So COULD the problem be with our society now? Gratituous violence in movies, T.V. & video games? Lack of family values? Children having children? Personal responsibility? An Educational System that actually was held to a high standard for educating those who will follow us?

Much to think about! Much to consider!

Not that the beltway cocktail club will listen, but Mark Levin said Boehner should bring Feinstein’s bill up for a vote immediately. No amendments, just a straight up or down vote. Get the votes of these slimy politicians on record as soon as possible. That would nip their fundraising efforts in the bud and let us get back to more important things on Preezy Revenge’s agenda like gay marriage and amnesty for illegal aliens.

Julie Brueckheimer January 25, 2013 at 12:17 pm

That’s exactly what Boehner should do, but will he? The more time he gives them, the more they can propagandize. Look at what’s happened with the delay of Clinton testifying on Benghazi: it came to a point where she could get away with saying, “What difference does it make now?”

Plus, this gun fight will be made into a big distraction from the spending fight.

Why is it that the libs think it’s ok to kill a baby before it’s born but then want to ban guns so it won’t be killed afterward. What is the magical moment/age to a lib that a child becomes worth saving? Surely not right after birth, because Obama is okay with letting newborns die alone in a closet. It’s shameful and disgusting that they keep dancing on the graves of dead children to promote their political agenda.

That is an excellent point, but the Constitution is ignored. Look at Obamacare: government officials will keep their own plan. Why doesn’t anyone take them to court for the exceptions/exemptions they give themselves?

Keith:

(At least on my computer) your email link is a page of unreadable code.

Also: Some of the emails linked via the DONATE button to a different page than you got: contributebarackobama.com, with a picture of Obama addressing a huge audience. The main page is overlaid with a panel saying:
“President Obama still needs your support. Make a donation to the Obama Victory Fund today”. Then select an amount ($15, $35, $50, $100, $250, $500, $1000, other amount).

The balance of the page is donation and regulatory information, including guidelines for donations to the Obama Victory Fund 2012.

Jim January 25, 2013 at 12:36 pm

The FBI reports that 1.5 million crimes, including murder and rape, are prevented each year just by brandishing a gun. How many more murders will there be if they take all the guns away from lawful owners?

In Australia and elsewhere, taking the guns from lawful owners resulted in more murders, not less, because the criminals have all the guns. This proves that brandishing or using a gun, if necessary, deters more murders than cops and jail sentences.

This is called “mass punishment.” Is the government going to punish the masses for the crimes of a few? And since it will make no difference in the end, is it not political BS?

What will make a difference is if the “sissies” in the USA will not be cowards, but buy guns, learn how to use them effectively and safety, and this will deter or even prevent future such tragedies.

Look what happened after 9-11. Before that event, people sat passively in their seats and obeyed hijackers. But since then, everyone is ready to attack the attackers, and indeed there are numerous news reports of such resistance to would-be attackers in the last 10-11 years.. Now the terrorists are too afraid of failure to attempt more hijackings.

In summary, packing “heat” deters crime and could have stopped or even prevented some of the recent gun violence.

Where is the feedback over Hollywood and Video Games? The boy in TX had just watched the Movie, “Halloween.” He thought is was cool that so many were killed and it seemed to be a fun thing to do. He wanted to mimick the Movie. The people are still high on the Gun Issue, when they should be looking at the Instrutions from Video Games and the Movies. Someone has taught the young people how to do these things.

His enslavement will end when he stops doing a word search and calling me a troll after every one of my posts. It appears, based upon the last few posts, he has set himself free.

Speaking of taxes, does anyone know what sort of pressure was put on Phil Mickelson to retract his statement? Surely, some kind of pressure was applied, and if so, aren’t we crossing into a violation of Phil’s First Ammendment rights?

Susan January 25, 2013 at 6:13 pm

He earns a lot of money by endorsing products. My guess is that he was pressured by one or more of the endorsers. Shame he put his self-interest before his country.

“Mickelson earns more than $30 million annually from endorsement partners: Callaway, Barclay’s, KPMG, Exxon, Rolex and Amgen/Pfizer. He picked up a deal to promote psoriatic arthritis drug Enbrel after he was diagnosed with the disease in 2010 and used the drug for his treatment.”
