Propagandizing on Behalf of the President and Receiving a Tax Deduction For Doing So

16 May

I saw this ad on television somewhere last night.

The claim that the new ‘Green Economy’ has ‘created over 3 million jobs, with many more to come’ is a complete lie put out by Barack Obama’s Department of Labor, with the socialist cheerleader and constant campaigner Hilda Solis at the helm.

But let’s set that aside for a moment.

At the end of the ad they urge people to support the President’s Clean Air Standards. That makes it a partisan political ad, does it not?

The ad is put out by ‘Earth Justice’. Any organization that wraps its name around the word ‘Justice’ causes red flags to go up, emphasis on the RED.

Sure enough, Earth Justice is a spin off of the Sierra Club and is the legal arm that uses its resources to tie up American land through legal action. Earth Justice actually boast that they’ve prevented access to 50,000,000 acres in this country. Fifty Million!

They’re motto? Because the Earth needs a good lawyer.

They’re also working against the coal industry and fracking.

But. If you go to their website’s Donate page you’ll see that your contributions are tax deductible.

Isn’t campaigning by a non-profit on behalf of a candidate illegal? Have the enviro-tyrants overstepped the campaign finance laws or have they cleverly skirted the law by embracing the ‘green’ agenda which happens to be the president’s policy?

    Actually, I think they can basically make their own campaign ads that support a particular candidate, if they are a super PAC, or something like that. They just can’t donate money directly to the candidate so he can make his own commerical. Please don’t take my word for it though; campaign laws are so complicated you’d need to hire an attorney to sort it out.

    Which is why your post is still quite on point. Ironically enough, it’s the cases that The Left HATES, such as Citizen United, which allow “Earth Justice” to make this ad.

    Ha!

    Also, it demonstrates why the IRS dragging its feet on non-profit status for Tea Parties is so very, very dangerous. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/aclj-to-represent-nearly-20-tea-party-groups-against-the-irs-amid-intimidation-claims/

    Here’s an old WSJ article on campaign finance laws; I had to consult it just to get this comment together.

    When Obama is defeated I predict he becomes a lobbyist for the solar energy businsess.
