The Examiner is on the case:
Bloggers at the website “The Jawa Report” have used their collective investigative talent to expose the smear campaign. Normally, the blog specializes in tracking down and stopping sources of internet-based Islamic extremism, also known as jihadist propaganda. The bloggers recently turned their abilities to finding the source of the Palin smear videos. They present strong evidence linking Winner & Associates to the videos including an email from one of the postings that is assigned to the domain name for the company's website.
The “Jawans” also compared the smear videos to videos known to have been produced by David Axelrod's media company in support of the Obama campaign. The Jawa Report presents strong evidence that the female voice-over used in the smear videos is the same voice used in all of the Obama campaign videos from Axelrod's company. In addition, the investigators who routinely review jihadist videos for clues have determined that the video and production quality of the smear videos was high and likely done by a professional production company, not a “grassroots” effort.
The connections provide a clear, although yet to be fully proven, scenario. Based upon the evidence it appears that Axelrod likely orchestrated the smear campaign providing his media company resources to create the smear videos for the PR firm which launched the viral campaign. It was all meant to look like it came from somewhere other than the Obama campaign, a prime example of “astroturfing”.
Axelrod and his ilk make Islamo-fascists look like pansies when it comes to organized character assassination. I only hope these invaluable bloggers can force the dinosaur media's hand, just as they did with the bogus, "fake but accurate" Dan Rather/National Guard takedown attempt of 2004. I'll say it again: I don't know how any thinking person could possibly even entertain the idea of voting for Obama! Sure, the drive-by's are in the tank for him, but with talk radio, cable news and the blogosphere out in full-force counteracting their propaganda, anyone with a brain would at least have serious doubts about the guy.
Hardball Chicago machine politics on a national stage -- a chilling reality that should be a wake-up call to all Americans. Let's hope Jawa and the rest find the conclusive evidence they need to put the final nail in Obama's electoral coffin. Between this and the email hacking incident, the Left and Obama have made it pretty clear what kind of "change" we can expect if -- shudder! -- he makes it all the way to the White House. If Americans truly value their freedom, they'll do everything in their power to elect McCain-Palin and send this guy to the dustbin of presidential campaign history.
