Obama’s Enemies List getting results [Darleen Click]

Nixon never had it so good

Businessman Frank Vandersloot, the CEO of Melaleuca, has been targeted by the Obama campaign after donating money to Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. “Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, ‘Keeping GOP Honest,’ took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney,” Kim Strassel of the Wall Street Journal reported. “Titled ‘Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,’ the post accused the eight of being ‘wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.’ Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being ‘litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.'”

The attacks are working. Vandersloot revealed in an interview on Fox News that his business practice is being hurt by the attacks from the Obama team.

“Those people that I know well weren’t affected by this [attack],” said Vandersloot. “But for people who didn’t know me, who are members of our business or customers, and they were reading this, then we got a barrage of phone calls of people cancelling their customer memberships with us.”

“Really?,” the Fox News host asked. “How many did that?”

“A couple hundred that we can track,” Vandersloot replied.

Vandersloot also reports his children have been targeted and harassed. Kim Strassel has a further updated with Trolling for Dirt

About a week after that post, a man named Michael Wolf contacted the Bonneville County Courthouse in Idaho Falls in search of court records regarding Mr. VanderSloot. Specifically, Mr. Wolf wanted all the documents dealing with Mr. VanderSloot’s divorces, as well as a case involving a dispute with a former Melaleuca employee.

Mr. Wolf sent a fax to the clerk’s office—which I have obtained—listing four cases he was after. He would later send a second fax, asking for three further court cases dealing with either Melaleuca or Mr. VanderSloot. Mr. Wolf listed only his name and a private cellphone number.

Some digging revealed that Mr. Wolf was, until a few months ago, a law clerk on the Democratic side of the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations. He’s found new work.

Funny thing, how Obama loves him some divorce records

the only reason Obama became a U.S. senator — allowing him to run for president — is that David Axelrod pulled sealed divorce records out of a hat, first, against Obama’s Democratic primary opponent, and then against Obama’s Republican opponent.

One month before the 2004 Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate, Obama was way down in the polls, about to lose to Blair Hull, a multimillionaire securities trader.

But then The Chicago Tribune — where Axelrod used to work — began publishing claims that Hull’s second ex-wife, Brenda Sexton, had sought an order of protection against him during their 1998 divorce proceedings.

From then until Election Day, Hull was embroiled in fighting the allegation that he was a “wife beater.” He and his ex-wife eventually agreed to release their sealed divorce records. His first ex-wife, daughters and nanny defended him at a press conference, swearing he was never violent. During a Democratic debate, Hull was forced to explain that his wife kicked him and he had merely kicked her back.

Hull’s substantial lead just a month before the primary collapsed with the nonstop media attention to his divorce records. Obama sailed to the front of the pack and won the primary. Hull finished third with 10 percent of the vote.

Luckily for Axelrod, Obama’s opponent in the general election had also been divorced.

The Republican nominee was Jack Ryan, a graduate of Dartmouth and Harvard law and business schools, who had left his lucrative partnership at Goldman Sachs to teach at an inner-city school on the South Side of Chicago.

But in a child custody dispute some years earlier, Ryan’s ex-wife, Hollywood sex kitten Jeri Lynn Ryan, had alleged that, while the couple was married, Jack had taken her to swingers clubs in Paris and New York.

Jack Ryan adamantly denied the allegations. In the interest of protecting their son, he also requested that the records be put permanently under seal.

Axelrod’s courthouse moles obtained the “sealed” records and, in no time, they were in the hands of every political operative in Chicago. Knowing perfectly well what was in the records, Chicago Tribune attorneys flew to California and requested that the court officially “unseal” them — over the objections of both Jack and Jeri Ryan.

Your honor, who knows what could be in these records!

A California judge ordered them unsealed, which allowed newspapers to publish the salacious allegations, and four days later, Ryan dropped out of the race under pressure from idiot Republicans (who should be tracked down and shot).

It’s The Chicago Way!

  1. Barack Milhous Obama is at it again. This guy has more “enemies lists” than his namesake ‘Tricky Dick.”

  2. Mitt Romney has never been divorced, so it’s going to be harder to take him down that Ryan was. However, with almost the entire MFM at your back, you can work miracles.

    The gay marriage announcement only exists because they want to attack Romney on his stance on gay marriage. We all know that. There will be other announcements on other topics as time goes on. Obama cannot talk about the economy because he has done his best to destroy it. So he has to talk about social issues which shouldn’t matter to anyone at a time like this.

    The MFM will play along, and Romeny will play along too because he is more than willing to let Obama and the MFM set the agenda. That’s why he should never have been the nominee.

  3. let’s fight for the america we love!

  4. I love America so much I want to marry it.

  5. deviant

  6. Don’t worry, B Moe, we’ll keep redefining marriage to the point where that union with the Union will be possible. And since polygamy will be okay too, other people will be able to marry America.

  7. From “kitchen table issues” to (remember them?) “yardsale addresses“.

  8. marry America

    It used to be called being a citizen of the USA.

  9. I question the timing of the IRS contacting me about my 2010 tax return.

  10. Did you make make any tax-deductible donations to any organization that is not saving whales, promoting a state favored race, advocating for vaginal equality, or witnessing advocating for some other recognized grievance group (other than tax-payers or the filthy rich)? Red flag, denied, pay up, where’s 2011?

  11. I made several small donations to conservative campaign in 2010 and 2011. Could be just a coincidence though the timing really is interesting given the on going donar war the Obama campaign seems to be waging.

    It also crossed my mind that I read recently that Mr. Geithner has yet to pay his back taxes.

  12. Some down-on-his-luck attorney with nothing to lose should sue the President on VanderSloot’s behalf for loss of business income.

    Get me rewrite!

  13. I didn’t mean that to come out sounding like I didn’t pay my taxes, I did, they just wanted more money due to accounting errors on my part – some of which I had to point out were accounting errors on their part.

  14. Too late, TRHein.
    Government computers have already alerted government eyes to your postings.
    And they are intrigued.

  15. In that case mc4ever59 – I am now invoking what ever plea Mr. Geithner has used or may use in the future regarding back taxes.
    As a public service I would like to inform all that I have filed the 1040EZ for the past 6 years and have never listed any donation regardless of amount. I have always figured that it was my money to do with what I wanted, why should I ask for deductions on what I freely gave away.

    Now, if beer and liquor where deductable… that might be a different story.

  16. Mr. Geithner is absolved from pleas, as he is one of the elite.
    Pleas are for peons such as you and I.
    Off with our heads!

  17. Hey! You got your Nixon in MY Carter!

  18. If beer were deductible I would itemize and not pay nearly as much in taxes.

  19. With this IRS Sam Adams would be deductible and PBR not so much.
