Today's right-wing Obama-is-a-foreigner thing is the startling revelation that, theoretically, Barack Obama could be accepting campaign donationsfrom foreign nationals.


Short version: Barack Obama does not own the Obama.com domain name. Some (American) dude in China does. It autoforwards to a donation page on BarackObama.com, which Barack Obama owns. Foreigners can access Obama.com through nefarious means such as web browsers, which probably means that all of Obama's money is raised from his half-siblings in Kenya and Indonesia.

But how to prove this is happening? The campaign denies it, of course, as liars would. So leave it to intrepid pile of moist journalism Erick Erickson to investigate. And by investigate, we mean attempt credit card fraud.

So, after talking with some lawyers about the process, etc. I donated to Barack Obama. Sort of.

It is rare that I do something where I feel the need to talk to lawyers first. But giving money to Barack Obama was one of those times.

I didn’t actually do it. I made up a name, made up a passport number, made up an address in Russia — hell I made everything up except my credit card number and expiration date.

Got that?

Everything was bull**** except the actual credit card number and expiration date. Everything.

Get it?  DO YOU FUCKING GET IT?

Now, we reach the truly despicable part of the tale: after committing blatant fraud, Obama accepted the donation, breaking feder-oh, what do you mean he didn't?

Barack Obama’s campaign processed my very generous $5.00 donation.

For several days my bank listed it as processing.

Then this is where the anti-climactic end to my story comes. The donation ultimately did not go through after three days of being listed as “processing.” There was no explanation.

Had the Obama campaign turned on basic verification, my transaction would have been rejected immediately. Instead, it lingered for a few days before being rejected.

So, when someone makes a fraudulent transaction on your account, it lingers for a few days, then falls off. The true terror here is what Barack Obama probably did with that transaction while it was pending (gay sexed it in the booty).

I do not know what processes the Obama campaign employs to weed these out. It actually appeared, based on the way it processed for several days, that the bank stopped it, not that Barack Obama stopped it. For the liberals saying my donation did not go through so there should be no problem — here’s the problem. The Obama campaign processed the donation. It was Bank of America that stopped it, not Team Obama. Team Obama let it be processed, something that would not have happened in Romney’s campaign or most any retailer in the nation.

For the Erick Erickson saying his bank stopped it - does he have any actual evidence? Like, did he call Bank of America? Or the Obama campaign? Or perhaps the small town in Russia from which he fraudulently hails?

Ah, well, let us not worry about our little burgeoning James O'Keefe and the crime he committed. The Obama campaign takes more than seconds to not approve fraudulent credit transactions, which is pretty much tantamount to ... I don't know, what's something bad? Not recycling? Murder? Letting your car alarm go off at 3 in the morning? Child abuse? One of those.

NO. IT CAN'T BE! Does the Republican-led United States Senate have ... a limit? Is there somehow a line they won't cross in this era of "Let's just go along with whatever Batshit McBigMac up there at 1600 Pennsylvania says and who cares if we destroy America in the process?" Turn out the answer to that question is maybe, and the limit is apparently when the crown prince of Saudi Arabia bone saws a Washington Post journalist to death and the president and the secretaries of State and Defense lie about it to their faces.

Senators do not like being lied to, no matter what party they're in. (Unless they're Chuck Grassley and it's Trump people lying about Russia and they're dangling sweet, delicious corn cobs in front of his face. Or if it's Lindsey Graham, when Trump's mouth is open. But otherwise they hate it.)

The Senate has been holding hearings and offering strongly worded resolutions aimed at forcing Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to take responsibility for the Jamal Khashoggi murder, and also stop genociding the fuck out of Yemen and blockading Qatar and kidnapping the Lebanese prime minister and jailing dissidents, and SO ON. In short, the consensus is that MBS is out of goddamn control and needs to be reined in, yesterday.

On Thursday, the Senate followed that up WITH VOTES. Indeed, the Senate voted unanimously to blame MBS for the murder. (Right here, we are using the definition of "unanimously" that means ALL OF THEM, KATIE, because that is what "unanimously" always means.)

CBP Photo, McAllen, Texas, June 2018

A seven-year-old Guatemalan girl died of dehydration and shock after she and other migrants turned themselves in to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents in the New Mexico desert last week, and that's America now, Merry Christmas (NOT "happy holidays," because this is a Christian nation, goddammit). The girl began having seizures about eight hours after she and her father were taken into custody by CBP near Lordsburg, New Mexico. Emergency responders got her on a helicopter to a hospital in El Paso, but she died the next day.
