Obama's Facebook, Twitter links hacked
Posted: Oct 28, 2013 10:08 PM EDT
Updated: Oct 28, 2013 10:15 PM EDT


The account,@BarackObama, is used by the president's Organizing For Action campaign.(Source: CNN)NEW YORK (CNNMoney)- A pair of tweets sent by President Barack Obama's Twitter account re-directed users to pro-Bashar al-Assad YouTube videos Monday afternoon.

One tweet about immigration reform was supposed to send followers to an article from The Washington Post. Instead, it linked to a video montage of terror attacks, starting with the attacks on 9/11.

In a statement to CNNMoney, the hacktivist group known as the Syrian Electronic Army took responsibility for the hack, claiming to have broken into the president's ShortSwitch account - a link-shortening service.

The account,@BarackObama, is used by the president's Organizing For Action campaign.

"OFA links that were posted on Twitter/Facebook was hacked and redirected to a video showing the truth about Syria," a member of the Syrian Electronic Army told CNNMoney. The hacktivist group claims that it gained access to multiple OFA email accounts, in addition to MyBarackObama.com and donate.barackobama.com .

The two manipulated tweets were retweeted hundreds of times. The links were compromised for part of Monday afternoon before they were once again directed to their intended targets.

The hack was likely accomplished by a phishing attack launched against members of Organizing for Action. A member of the SEA sent CNNMoney a screenshot of an organizer's inbox confirming they had accessed her email. CNNMoney also received screenshots confirming their ability to re-direct links and access BarackObama.com .

An official from Organizing for Action acknowledged the attack, telling CNN that "an account to our link shortener was hacked." A spokesman fro ShortSwitch said the site itself wasn't hacked, but the company believes OFA's account credentials were obtained elsewhere.

The SEA, which is comprised of hackers supporting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, have hacked several high profile Twitter handles and advertisements in the past.

Though the hack of the president's tweets was relatively minor, security expert David Kennedy said the SEA could expose more if they gained access to other website and Twitter management tools for the OFA campaign.

Get a clue. They had it then, they just had well hidden-as some of you idiots have to SEE now.
Duhmmies.
Oh goody! The old WMD went to Syria fantasy. Here's where it falls apart nitwit.
Syria was a staunch ally of Iran, Iraq's archenemy. Why would Saddam sent them there? Why didn't he use them himself? He had his back up against the wall and had nothing to lose by using them.
Another fact is that chemical weapons and even their precursor components don't have a long shelf life and they would have degraded to the point of uselessness in the ten years that have elapsed. Syria got its components on the open market. The chemicals used for nerve gas are the same as used in commercial pesticides.

If Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) claims the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) warned Wednesday, the GOP will have effectively destroyed itself.

“If I didn’t care so much about our country, I would hope he would get the Republican nomination for president, because that would mean the end of the Republican Party,” Reid told MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.

"He stands for everything America doesn't," Reid added.

Democrats have boasted recently that Cruz has only done them favors. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said last month that the Texas Republican's 21-hour talkathon aimed at defunding Obamacare "advanced our cause."

After the government shutdown came to an end earlier this month, Reid said Cruz "can't talk down to anyone anymore."

Expected from a government teat sucking subsidized person who gets his heath insurance through his subsidized employer.

What makes your subsidy better than others?

Health Insurance premiums had been rising at near double digit rates for the past 15 years.

It has been hurting corporations & employers who must either pass on those increases to their employees and/or reduce the plans offered.

Health insurance is access to healthcare.

We understand the difference. It is assh*les like you that think otherwise as you keep telling everyone that going to the ER when sick or injured is healthcare.

The emergency room is the most sensible health care option for people who won't work for a living, moron.

If you want health care, all you had to do was join the economy... that is, before you Democrats ruined it with your Marxist agenda.

Want health care? Do this:

1) Don't drop out of school.
2) Study while you're in school.
3) Don't have children before you're married.
4) Get a job and show up for work on time every day.
5) Do what you're paid to do when you're at work.

Anyone who does the above will never be "poor" and will be able to afford what health care used to cost before the Democrats pushed thier Marxist agenda onto it.

Nice job, morons. You destroyed the finest education system in the world, then you destroyed the finest health care system in the world.
What's next? Oh, yeah. You are trying to destroy the best governmental system in the history of civilization.

Everything you clowns touch turns into a disaster. Why does anyone think that same thing won't happen to health care?

Obama’s Defiant Obamacare Defense in Boston

Instead of offering his usual concessions Wednesday, Obama borrowed from Cheney—and hit back at claims he’s forcing Americans to pick ‘Ferrari’ over ‘Ford’ health-care plans.

President Obama’s speech at Faneuil Hall was probably his most passionate and unapologetic defense of the health-care law in ages, maybe since its passage. At times like this in the past, Old Mr. Reasonable has hemmed and hawed, ceding that his opponents had a point, but insisting—reasonably, of course—that he had a better one if you just stopped and thought about it. But Wednesday afternoon in Boston gave us a different Obama. He took a page out of the Bush playbook or, dare I say it, even the Cheney one. If things are going a little rocky at the moment, it doesn’t matter; cede nothing. Stick to plan. No matter the merits or facts, it’s the only approach that our political culture respects.

Here's the reality.
The TEA Party is the dominant constituent in the Republican Party. If the RINOs don't give control of the Republican Party to the dominant constituency, then the Republican Party is over.
If the TEA Party does not take control of the Republican Party, the Republican Party ceases to exist.
Now, that sounds like a plan, doesn't it?
