While Attack Watch was bombing, here’s the other Obama campaign failure you missed

Everyone, everywhere spent all day yesterday understandably amazed at the idiocy of the Obama campaign for their Attack Watch website!  But, this reminded me of another bizarre campaign fundraiser from last week that I never got around to writing about...

Here is the setup:

1)   Left blogs freak out saying that their super villain Charles Koch of the Koch brothers “compare” Obama to Saddam Hussein.

2)  Unfortunately for them, the transcripts weren’t right, and he just quoted Hussein, basically saying the election would be the “mother of all wars”.”

3) That gets corrected.

4)  Now, the Obama campaign machine has a decision to make. They don’t want to lose the opportunity to vilify the Koch brothers in a fundraising email.  But, the story is completely dead.  The left wing blogs that tried to make it into an issue look stupid.

What does Obama do?  He splits the difference and sends out this laughable piece of junk. Underlined portion below is mine.

XXXX --

Here's something you and I weren't supposed to find out:

At a private function at a Colorado resort, oil billionaire Charles Koch stood in front of hundreds of conservative millionaires and said the 2012 election will be, in the words of Saddam Hussein — yes, he decided to quote Saddam Hussein — “the mother of all wars.”

He then read through a list of 32 contributors who gave more than a million dollars each to bankroll the network of corporate special-interest groups that aim to tear down President Obama.

If that offends you, it absolutely should. But it should also motivate you, because you are the only thing that can stop them.

Can you make a donation of $15 or more right now?

I'd rather not spend time talking about this kind of gutter politics, but one simple fact makes it impossible to brush aside: special-interest groups like Karl Rove's American Crossroads Super PAC have already pledged to pour nearly $200 million into attacking the President in the coming months -- and more shadowy groups file paperwork and start running ads every week.

Right now, the President is focused on creating jobs and improving the lives of middle-class families. And this campaign will keep doing what we've been doing from the very beginning: growing a truly grassroots organization that's doing politics a different way, and encouraging as many people as possible to take ownership of this campaign as early as possible. It has to start with you.

The Koch brothers and the front groups they fund have decided on the tone they want the election to take in the coming months -- and we should expect these kinds of smears to only get worse.

But we still have a say about the kind of race we want to run and the kind of political climate we want to create. Take a stand now to support it.

That’s right—they were SO SUPER OFFENDED by those crazy Koch brothers raising money by quoting Saddam Hussein, that they were forced to raise money by quoting the Koch brothers quoting Saddam Hussein.   Remember, this is the day after Debbie Wasserman Schultz was complaining the media was focused too much on “language."   Yesterday, it was just “language” today it’s HORROR.

We must not forget that this is the same White House who had Anita Dunn as its Communications Director.  Way back then, they thought it was completely ridiculous that some crazy Fox News personality, Glenn Beck, was interested in her getting caught quoting the world's worst mass murderer, communist dictator, Mao Zedong.  Of course, the quoting of Mao was never really the problem, the problem was that Dunn called Mao one of her two “favorite political philosophers.”  Imagine if the Koch Brothers had called Saddam Hussein their “favorite political philosopher”?  The Obama campaign might even ask for $25 instead of $15!  But, when the lady down the hall does it, no big deal.

The funny thing is, as the administration and left wing blogs freaked out about the Koch brothers quoting Saddam Hussein, they didn’t realize that he actually misquoted Saddam Hussein.  The quote is actually “mother of all battles.”  That slight wording difference is probably why they didn’t realize that they have been quoting Saddam Hussein for years.  For example the Daily Kos, the Daily Kos, the Daily Kos, the Daily Kos, the Daily Kos, the Daily Kos, the Daily Kos, and the Daily Kos.

Beyond that, the “Mother of All Wars” is less of a quote than it is an obvious political reference.  But, it doesn't even work the way it was used:  if you remember right, Saddam Hussein got his ass kicked pretty badly.  Let's hope this election doesn't turn out to be the mother of all wars.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
