Reviewing the January 2010 fundraising numbers.
The combination of CPAC and a reduced feeling of urgency delayed this for a couple of days, but here are the numbers for January. Short version: RNC over DNC, effective ties (as in, less than 10K/20K differences ) for the Congressional and Senatorial committees, and the Democrats retain their cash-on-hand advantage. Raised CoH Debts RNC 10.53 9.48 0.00 DNC 9.19 10.20 4.68 NRSC 5.01 10.65 | Read More »
An Inside Look at Organizing for America Part II: ACORN for America?
Part II of our inside look at Organizing for America was inspired by the investigative work done by Carol Greenberg Thank you Carol for getting involved and driving this story. Anita MonCrief From a tiny acorn, a mighty oak can grow. With ACORN’s help, Barack Obama “grew” from an ACORN community organizer and instructor, to an ACORN lawyer and ACORN benefactor as a board member | Read More »

Reviewing the December Fundraising Numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: RNC above DNC, DNC took a big cash on hand hit, NRSC over DSCC in the biggest shocker, NRCC/DCCC more or less the same, DCCC has a big CoH advantage, and blessed if I know how much any of this means, post-Citizens’ United and post-Brown. Raised CoH Debts RNC 6.84 8.42 0.00 DNC 4.54 8.67 4.69 NRSC 4.10 8.30 | Read More »
An Inside Look at Obama’s Organizing for America Part I
Blogger and activist Carol Greenberg approached me recently with an exclusive look at her work investigating Organizing for America. I was impressed with Carol’s investigative reporting initiative and realized that America needed to see the “Obama Machine” in action. I began working with her on unraveling the truth behind OFA. I have invited Carol to guest blog at my sites this week for Part I. | Read More »
What are the DNC and DSCC Seeing That We Aren’t?
Coming on the heels of Martha Coakley saying Scott Brown’s surge is “frightening”, I’m hearing tonight that the DNC and DSCC have rapidly deployed senior aids to Massachusetts to try to get the Coakley campaign under control and course corrected.Internal polling on the Democrat side suggests that Brown has pulled to within the margin of error and public polls are reflecting this. The Democrats are | Read More »
Sorry, Moe; but I have to rebut your OFA assessment
It’s “not dead yet…” http://www.redstate.com/moe_lane/2009/12/18/correcting-the-record-on-organizing-for-america/ to quote Monty Python. Organizing for America is a hollow shell. It’s been a hollow shell from pretty much the moment that it stopped being a ‘sexy*’ campaign tool that didn’t actually require its members to do anything except hand over money and votes. Not an empty shell, either. OFA. Organizing for America. An arm of the DNC that operates | Read More »
Reviewing the November Fundraising Numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: the RNC & NRSC beat out their Democratic counterparts – which is odd, considering that they’re the groups giving the Republican base the most aggravation; the NRCC pulled in less than the DCCC; the Democrats have a pretty good COH advantage (although the RNC spent a bunch of money in November); and the Democrats apparently aren’t planning to retire | Read More »
An opportunity and the RIGHT thing to do….
WE have all heard how Obama and his Democrats who LOVE the unions and by LOVING them more then “the children” have thrown 3,000 families in DC to the proverbial curb. These children have worked very hard and earned the RIGHT to be in these non-public schools and this is their TRUE opportunity to “get out”. If Republicans want to show that they are TRULY | Read More »
Reviewing the October fundraising numbers.
As promised. Short version: DNC beat RNC, NRSC edged DSCC, DCCC edged NRCC, and cash on hand would worry me more if the GOP hadn’t just removed the NJ & VA governorships from the Democrats and essentially handed NY-23 as part of a unfortunate but necessary life lesson to the GOP leadership. RNC 9.06 11.29 0.00 DNC 11.58 12.96 4.40 NRSC 4.00 5.80 0.00 DSCC | Read More »
Inside ACORN’S Political Plans: Ensuring a Democrat Majority
According to a report from Ohio today, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has asked the ACORN-tainted Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, to investigation ACORN’s voter registration work in the state. “U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan has formally asked Ohio’s secretary of state to look into allegations that ACORN had at least a preliminary plan to back Democrat candidates in key | Read More »

Round one…..WE are on the ropes…..KNOCKOUT is coming to the Democrats!
I went down to DC because I was called to action by Congressman King Real American Hero because he needed me and ALL of us to help SAVE our country from the horror that is government run healthcare. It is not lightly that I FIGHT my elected officials as a matter of fact other then the ballot box I had never been moved to actively | Read More »
Sunlight Foundation in the Dark
The Sunlight Foundation’s Luke Rosiak reported on Friday the Republican National Committee spent $1.4 million on the redesign of GOP.com, a figure which totals more than five times what the RNC’s Democratic counterpart spent to host and maintain Democrats.org. Sources familiar with the RNC’s digital makeover, however, contest Sunlight’s report, calling it “ridiculous.” Rosiak writes: The biggest disparity seems to be bandwidth costs–the RNC paid | Read More »
BUSTING the HYPOCRITES: Obama, Mama Mao, the DNC and Their Union-Busting Law Firm
Were there not have been so much attention paid to the White House Communications Director, media controller, and Maoist Anita Dunn’s worshipful comments on mass murderer (and Communist dictator) Mao Zedong, we might not have discovered this story of hidden hypocrisy and seeming conflict of interest. It seems, however, that as we looked into the Maoist media controller more, the more the hypocrisy surfaced that puts Ms. Dunn, her husband and the | Read More »
OfA, DNC ‘Call Out’ Steele in New Web Video
Organizing for America, the increasingly combative political operation of the White House, today unveiled a new web video targeting Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele, charging the Republican Party chief with “siding with Washington elites and insurance companies and playing political games to kill reform.” The latest installment in OfA’s “call ‘em out” campaign—a call to arms of sorts for complacent allies of President | Read More »
Reviewing the September fundraising numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: RNC beat DNC, but DSCC & DCCC significantly outraised their counterparts – sufficiently so that the Democrats raised more overall for the month. When debt is factored in, the Democrats also went from being significantly behind on cash-on-hand to being slightly ahead. That being said: the RNC and NRCC are both reporting significant increases in small-person donors. Raised CoH | Read More »
