Obama Circle ‘Shaking with Laughter’ Over Hilary Rosen Distraction
By Ann Kane
Set em’ up, take em’ down. Did you ask yourself why Obama, Biden, Axelrod, and leftists of all stripes appeared to side with the pro-Ann Romney camp? Did it make you stop and think? Or did you buy into the distraction?
Crazy headlines like “Obama Throws Hilary Rosen Under the Bus” make you wonder why he would do that to someone who visited the White House 35 times since he became president. It’s because he isn’t really throwing her under the bus; he’s just saying he is.
Consider this excerpt from the poem “Child of Europe”:
Let your lie be even more logical than the truth itself
So the weary travelers may find repose in the lie.
After the Day of the Lie gather in select circles
Shaking with laughter when our real deeds are mentioned.
Behind the distractions, the Left, socialists, communists, Marxists whatever you want to call them have been “pushing centralization and collectivism” (see AT’s editor Thomas Lifson’s blog post) of the government right under our noses through lies and propaganda.
Republicans wonder why Obama’s buddies keep getting to set the narrative. The answer’s obvious — the Republicans keep taking the bait.
Throwing out chum to the chattering classes is right out of the Democrat consultant and Mao admirer Anita Dunn’s strategy to sidetrack us from the destructive transformative policies this administration has put in place.
Dunn’s name keeps popping up. She visits the White House regularly, and her PR firm SKDKnickerbocker was behind Sandra Fluke’s media firestorm; now we find Hilary Rosen works at SKDK. [Emphasis added]
Let’s recap the last three months just to get a handle on team Obama’s modus operandi.
In January Obama media reporter George Stephanopolous throws out a line about whether birth control should be covered in Obamacare at the Republican debate. Three weeks later what has all the conservatives in a tizzy? Sandra Fluke and her ridiculous call for free birth control and how she was wronged by a congressional committee who wouldn’t hear her case.
Non-stop media coverage ensued, but while everyone was looking at this nonsense, the administration continued to toil away 24/7 on creating and implementing socialist policies.
Next comes Trayvon Martin. His death came on February 26, but the chum throwers didn’t place it in the news cycle until March 19. More non-stop media coverage; more underground workers making the overthrow of capitalism a goal within their reach.
Now that Trayvon’s case has calmed down after the George Zimmerman arrest, enter stage right, Hilary Rosen, leftist media pundit. She makes an incendiary statement about Ann Romney “never working a day in her life,” and all hell breaks loose.
Not only are conservatives attempting to compare the illogic of this woman’s words with past remarks by feminists, but leftists are talking like they’re so above the vitriol Rosen spewed.
As a result of the Rosen affair, we’re all focused on antiquated mommy wars which were settled 50 years ago; nobody thinks stay at home moms don’t work. But that doesn’t matter. All that matters is conservatives just keep swallowing the Left’s brain candy.
And the driven-to-distraction narrative goes on…and on. We don’t have to jump every time Obama and his minions try to play us like fiddles.
The Hannitys, Becks and Limbaughs don’t need to comment. Instead they should highlight the egregious policies being practiced in the health care industry right now. They need to hammer away about the bad economy; Obama’s Achilles Heel. They need to instruct us on how centralization and collectivism happens on the street level.
They should point out how education reform is being spearheaded by Obama operatives (Anita Dunn pops up here as well; SKDK represents StudentsFirst and a mayoral candidate in NYC whom StudentsFirst is also backing) in conjunction with Republican sympathizers.
Wouldn’t it be cool if the next time the Left entices us with some manufactured crisis, we just ignore it and continue on with exposing what’s really going on?

ADD TO THE ABOVE ……..THE FOLLOWING:
Of Interesting NOTE here: Anita Dunn mentioned above is MARRIED to Robert Bauer, the Chief Legal Advisor for Obama. Robert Bauer is connected to Perkins Coie, the law firm that has essentially sequestered any RECORDS relating to Obama. Obama for America spends millions to Perkins Coie to maintain and secrete those records.
Obama’s records including school, his Social Security number, etc. have been secreted and protected by Perkins Coie (Law group with which one of its lawyers, Robert Bauer(married to Maoist admirer Anita Dunn) is one of Obama’s chief legal advisors at the White House.
Bauer has done his best to prevent the American public from seeing a wide range of Obama’s records that could prove, or disprove, his eligibility to occupy the Oval Office under the Constitution’s requirement that the president be a “natural born” citizen.
Documents concerning Obama that the White House has refused to release to the public include his long-form birth certificate and his passport records, as well as other records that may possibly be relevant, such as records regarding Obama’s possible adoption by his Indonesian stepfather or college application and tuition financial aid records which would reveal whether Obama was ever registered as a foreign student.
Federal Election Commission records show $1,352,378.95 in payments were made by Obama for America to Perkins Coie while the law firm was representing Obama in various court cases which have sought to obtain Obama’s long-form birth certificate to determine if he is a “natural born” citizen under Article Two, Section 1 of the Constitution.
Bauer, a Democratic Party partisan, has a long history of defending Democratic Party presidential hopefuls.
A biography for Bauer posted on the Perkins Coie website indicates he was general counsel to the Democratic National Committee during the presidential campaign of Sen. John Kerry and that he served as counsel to Sen. Tom Daschle, the Democratic leader in the impeachment trial proceedings of President Bill Clinton.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, Bauer functioned as an “attack lawyer,” threatening with FEC complaints groups wanting to run anti-Obama television ads.
Also during the 2008 presidential campaign, Bauer as counsel for the Obama campaign wrote letters to television station managers and to Department of Justice Assistant Attorney General John Keeney arguing that airing an anti-Obama ad pointing to the known association between Obama and Weather Underground radical Bill Ayers would violate federal election rules.
Also during the 2008 campaign, Bauer intervened on behalf of Obama to block the California-based American Leadership Project from running a television ad campaign over support from unions, including the Service Employees International Union.
Again, Bauer filed a complaint with the FEC alleging that the union-funded television campaign the American Leadership Project planned to run in Indiana against Obama was illegal under federal election laws.

Carlos Luna, of the FEC, responded and says a candidate must be an Active (Declared) Presidential Candidate before the deadline of a particular report (Q1, Q2, …etc) for their report summary totals to display here. The Q1 (while it was previous displayed) was removed, because The Obama for America first quarter report was filed before the Obama statement of candidacy was filed.

David Brock is Founder of Media Matters AND American Bridge 21st Century (**Also listed as Treasurer**). Ties to the White House?
Look at the email address for Amer. Bridge 21st Century: PLGroup@PerkinsCoie.com
Perkins Coie is the Lawyer group that has been protecting Obama from birthers and those looking for his school/SS records. Obama’s Chief White House Counsel, Robert Bauer is from Perkins Coie.
Call it “political archaeology.”
When wealthy donors want to help dig dirt about the right, they often turn to American Bridge 21st Century.
Roll Call describes the super PAC as “the opposition research hub of the Democratic fundraising apparatus.”
The committee was founded by David Brock, a reformed conservative who started Media Matters, a group that monitors Fox and other conservative media.
The PAC, in turn, follows Republican and conservative politicians. When Sen. Scott Brown attacked Senate hopeful Elizabeth Warren on earmarks, the PAC published his own promise to “continue to bring home the pork.”
American Bridge videographers track GOP candidates around the country, hoping to capture any “macaca” moments.
The PAC reported raising $3.7 million and spending $2.9 million last year.
The above Muckety map shows some of the most generous, most connected contributors. (We recommend looking at the larger version, where you have more room to expand and move relationships.)
Major donors include two bundlers for the 2012 Obama campaign – Wayne Jordan and Paul Egerman.
Unions such as the AFL-CIO, AFSCME and SEIU have also supported the PAC’s efforts. Other contributors come from the entertainment, tech and financial sectors.
Several heirs are also on the list, including Agnes Gund, former president of the Museum of Modern Art, Anne Earhart of the Getty family and Robert McKay of the Taco Bell fortune.
ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP to LOOK AT!
Wayne D. Jordan a major fundraiser/bundler for Obama 2012:
Wayne D. Jordan is MARRIED to M. Quinn Delaney
NOTE the Akonadi Foundation: Wayne Sec./Treas. and wife M.Quinn Delaney is President
Since 2000, the Akonadi Foundation has been working to support and nurture a racial justice movement that can finally put an end to the structural racism that lies at the heart of social inequity in the United States.
The Akonadi Foundation uses the concept of “structural racism” because it means:
• Recognizing how history and culture have allowed the privileges associated with “whiteness” and the disadvantages associated with ”color” to endure, adapt and accumulate over time;
• Understanding how public policies and institutional practices intersect and produce inequitable racial outcomes; and
• Examining how the assumptions and stereotypes embedded in U.S. dominant culture serve to legitimize and popularize racial disparities.
Though manifestations of racism like Jim Crow segregation, Indian removal and Japanese internment appear to have been eradicated, racism remains an integral part of American society. It is woven into the very fabric of our culture, our language, our government, our economy. And to truly dismantle this structural racism, we need a powerful social change movement that holds racial justice as a primary, fundamental goal. Only then will we be able to create a racially just society.
Akonadi’s mission is to help build this robust and powerful movement. We do this in three ways:
• By providing grants to racial justice organizations,
• By communicating about our work and the work of our grant partners, and
• By nurturing support for racial justice movement building in philanthropy.
