The Barack H. Obama Foundation was fast-tracked to IRS tax-exempt status at the same time that the IRS was abusing numerous Tea Party and conservative groups. While those groupsí tax-exempt applications were taking two years and mountains of paperwork and invasive queries about their memberships and activities, the Barack H. Obama Foundation won its status in just 30 days. That status was back-dated 38 months, which is against the law.- See more at: http://www.teaparty.org/obamas-brother-wears-...
You people really look desperate when you dig up old news. This non-issue was first reported by the Daily Caller in May, 2013. NOTE: "Daily Caller"!

Now, let's make it clear that President Barack Obama is not in anyway affiliated with The Barack H. Obama Foundation.

The President of the Foundation is Abongo Malik Obama. The Executive Director is Ray Baysden of Arlington, VA and the Director is Gwendolyn Anderson of Rockville, Maryland and
no one knows how long the Foundation had been working with the IRS to correct their violation involving their tax exempt status. It could have been a year or more.

FACTS:

On their 2008 form 990, the Foundation stated, "The Foundation sponsored a youth tournament, dug water wells, and repaired/renovated local mosque." They listed an outstanding loan of $2,887 due to Malik Obama.

On their 2009 form 990 they stated "The Foundation sponsored a youth tournament, built houses for widows and orphans, assisted in construction of Police Post, education and repair/renovation of local mosque."

On their amended forms to their 2010 form 990, The Foundation states that they received $17,243 in 2008; $1,430 in 2009 and $24,250 in 2010; they then list an outstanding balance of $45,729 due to Malik Obama. Their 2010 from 990 was the last one they filed.

https://bulk.resource.org/irs.gov/eo/2011_09_...

Now, if you want to start a "conspiracy theory", how about who is Ray Baysden? There is A Ray Baysden in Arlington, VA whose profile says that he "served as Chief of the Joint Mission Analysis Center (JMAC) for the United Nationsí Stabilization Mission in Haiti from 2008 to 2010. In this role, he was tasked with providing risk mitigation strategies and gathering intelligence for the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General (SRSG) and the Senior Mission Leadership Team, which included the Military Forces Commander and the United Nations Police Commissioner." Of course, whether this is "the" same Ray Baysden is anyone's guess.

Gwendolyn Anderson of Rockville, Maryland is an unknown. There is a Gwendolyn Anderson from Washington, DC whose profile says that she worked for an "International Association" and "Black Actuaries" but who knows.....

Just had another conversation with the only person I know that signed up for Obamacare. He got the Gold plan, but now has an out-of-pocket of up to $6,000 because he found out none of his doctors are in-network (was lied to). He was paying under $300 a month prior to o-BOZO-care and now is paying $470. He has spent untold hours on the phone trying to get answers. His bill was wrong.

He is now going to see what he can get outside of Obamacare and will no longer be voting for Democrats.

One of the security guards came up to us, so this person asked if the Security Guard had o-BOZO-care. She said her insurance from her employer was dropped because of Obamcare and she now does not have insurance. She is refusing to sign-up because it is too expensive and will pay the fine (she has a young kid too).

These are the only two people I know impacted by Obamacare.

Democrats are idiots!

Fifty-six percent of uninsured Americans who plan to get health insurance say they will do so through a government health insurance exchange. That figure has steadily increased since Gallup began tracking uninsured Americans' intentions in October.
But what struck me most was this:
38% say they are more likely to pay the fine the government will assess most Americans who lack health insurance.
That 38 percent generally approximates the conservative fringe of America, you know, the ones who clung to George W. Bush to the bitter end, the ones who believe Obama was born in Kenya, the ones sickened by America's creeping communism. There are probably a handful in that 38 percent who are choosing to pay the fine for non-ideological reasons. But there are many more who are doing so to spite the president.
Because, you see, placing yourself at risk of financial ruin, severe disability, or even death is totally worth it in pursuit of undermining the communist plot hatched at the Heritage Foundation. It's like eating crappy, unhealthy fast food in order to spite liberals. Or refusing to exercise because Michelle Obama.
All these things increase the odds of premature incapacitation or death, and ... that's supposed to make liberals sad? Maybe it does, since we don't think "empathy" is a dirty word. But holding your breath until you die is an odd way to spite your political enemies.

Looks like a variation of the stupid post from someone (was it him?) yesterday. Probably another propaganda email sent to all the teabaggers.

Gunner says he's a retired cop in CT; probably a minimum wage security guard; you know those fatties who can't run to save their lives; or anyone elses.

In the wake of a smear campaign of "race-baiting and dog whistle politics" against Debo Adegbile, President Obama's highly-qualified nominee to head the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights has formally called on right-wing media to raise the level of discourse and abandon their efforts at "character assassination" and "racially charged rhetoric."

On January 23, conservative newspaper The Washington Times ran an extremely offensive caricature attacking Adegbile. The caricature was a reference to Adegbile's successful appellate representation of a convicted murderer whose death sentence was twice confirmed to be unconstitutional. Adegbile's work on that case as one of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund's top lawyers has been called "consistent with the finest tradition of this country's legal profession" by the American Bar Association.

The Times' caricature, on the other hand, referred to his nomination as "a slap in every policeman's face," a reference to the victim of Adegbile's former client.

The Leadership Conference -- a coalition of 200 of the nation's leading civil rights organizations -- responded with a statement calling the caricature "reminiscent of the racist iconography of the late 19th century designed to dehumanize and stereotype African Americans," a condemnation of the right-wing media attacks against Adegbile. The January 30 statement also called on the Times and Fox News specifically to "tone down this rhetoric and have a reasoned and substantive conversation on this important nomination":
