Sects, Lies, and Videotape

Led by The Jawa Report, a group of bloggers that has used their skillset to target, investigate, and bring down al Qaeda Web sites, Rusty Shackleford has posted research that has identified a Obama-connected public relations firm and it's employees as being behind the creation, uploading and publicizing of anti-Palin smear ads using proven-false smears and a technique called astroturfing, a technique perfected by Obama Campaign manager, David Axelrod.

Within an hour of the report, those named in it have feverishly begun trying to remove evidence, including deleting videos and accounts used in the astroturfing effort.

I'm not a lawyer and won't pretend to know which campaign laws (if any) were broken, but it certainly appears that Barack Obama's campaign manager is involved if not orchestrating these efforts, and people have certainly gone to jail on far less evidence.

Watch the story develop in the blogosphere at Memeorandum.

Barack Obama's chickens may have finally come home to roost.

What Obambam is finding out is that his Chicago political machine tactics are being anticipated and routed. It's kind of like the Islamotards all having one card in their hand and playing it over and over. We finally figure out what their card is, and then it's game over.

No. There can never be a gun "smoking" enough for the MSM to actually tie this to Obama.
Short of a video showing The One directing this campaign, no one will pay any attention.

You can add all the illegal bundling for the FEC to investigate as well! Rusty and Ace were very much on top of this and I think the reason they took this down so fast. The description of what went down is long, but the devil is in the details and everyone needs to read the entire Jawa Report and pass it on to others.

Here is hoping those chickens coming home to roost will lay some stinky egg bombs on THE ONE and Axelrod. These guys are dirty and I believe by the time this is over THE ONE might be so damaged he will not be able to run for POTUS again.

Watch how fast this falls off the bottom of Memeorandum. I've been watching Meme for a few weeks now and it has become increasingly dominated by pro-Obama, anti-McCain, and very anti-Palin links.

Today is unusual because there is so much bailout news but if you look at
Meme's Leaderboard

of the top 25 links 20 (including MSM which we know is in the tank for O) are clearly left, proO/antiMP. Only three (The Corner, Hot Air, Michelle Malkin) could be construed as proMP/antiO.

Why is Meme still treated as a reliable source?

Was I right? The Jawa Report is gone from Meme just in time for people to read it after work.
