It was reported this weekend by the folks over at the Zero Hedge Blog, that the current batch of Wikileak E-mails by Clinton Campaign Manager and Supreme Lackey John Podesta, contained a very interesting e-mail from the Atlas Project, suggesting how to “maximize” the campaign’s polling.
What is “The Atlas Project”, you ask?
Founded in 2007 by Steve Rosenthal, Mary Beth Cahill, and Michael Whouley, the Atlas Project (AP) describes itself as a private consulting firm “committed to the success of the progressive movement.” In an effort to help leftist political candidates win their respective elections, AP “conducts in-depth analysis of collected and preserved campaign-related information in key states” to enable its clients – mostly Democrats – to “make better informed data-driven decisions.” AP works in partnership with the National Committee for an Effective Congress (NCEC), which furnishes the Atlas staff with much of the information upon which its analyses and recommendations are based.
To plan a successful campaign for each of its clients, AP considers such variables as:
the degree of cable and satellite TV penetration in the area where political advertising will be run
what type of direct-mail pieces will most effectively influence voters in the targeted area
the findings of public and internal polling on issues important to votersdemographics of the targeted population (race, ethnicity, age, occupation, income, level of education, political affiliations, etc.)
how state and local elected officials, labor leaders, and political operatives might be able to help promote AP’s candidate
how to register as many voters as possible prior to registration deadlines in the targeted area
how to take advantage of absentee- and early-voting options, where applicableAtlas Project clients include not only individual candidates for political office, but also some of the most prominent and powerful leftist organizations in the United States.
Here is the e-mail in question…

Hey, when can we meet? I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our polling before we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling. -Tom [***courtesy of wikileaks.org]
If you are like me, you grew up hearing that there are 3 types of lies in this world.
Little White Lies: I have always believed that these are “plain, old” lies, like those told in the heat of the moment to protect yourself when you are caught red-handed or, you can’t think of anything else to buttress your argument. I have been trying to think of some examples of just a plain, old lie.
I suppose that a good example of a lie would be : “Sarah Palin said ‘I can see Russia from my house.”
That was, unfortunately, a pretty effective lie. It was actually, now irrelevant, comedienne Tina Fey, of Saturday Night Live and 30 rock mediocre fame, who uttered those words, during a SNL Skit. I say former, because her attempts at being a movie star have both bombed bigger than Hiroshima. Payback’s a …well…you know.
Ms. Fey’s impersonation was grabbed by the Democratic Party, and all of its minions, and used to further their meme that Gov. Palin was nothing by a stupid Alaskan Snowbilly.
Of course, informed Americans know that the Left’s stereotype of the Arctic Fox is about as far from the truth as Michael Moore is from the Jenny Craig Diet Plan. Unfortunately though, low information voters (You know…pookie and ‘dem) lapped the false meme up like a kitten laps up a bowl of milk, thanks to the 24/7 barrage of propaganda supplied by the Main Stream Media, and Vichy Republicans, who did not like her because she was an outsider from Flyover Country. It never mattered that she ran the largest state in the nation, and actually ran it in the black. Oh, no. That information was never emphasized by Obama’s Propaganda Platoon: the Main Stream Media, Organizing for Obama,and Hollyweird.
This little lie, as they always do, led to bigger lies, once Obama ascended to the Throne of the Regime.
Bald-faced lies: These are lies, which a professional prevaricator, like Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) can speak without blinking an eye, while smiling at the camera with all the warmth and sincerity of Robert Young in Father Knows Best. (Look it up, kids)
Here are some of the lies which The Lightbringer and his Administrative Angels have laid on us:
If the Supreme Court throws out the federal health care law, it “would be an unprecedented, extraordinary step of overturning a law that was passed by a strong majority of a democratically elected Congress.”
“For the first time since 1990, American manufacturers are creating new jobs.”“Preventive care … saves money, for families, for businesses, for government, for everybody.”
“Thirty million Americans, including a lot of people in Florida, are going to be able to get healthcare next year because of that law.”
Obama- “I made a bunch of these promises during the campaign. … We’ve got about 60 percent done in three years.”
Obama Admin.- Under President Barack Obama, the United States has “doubled our exports.”
The president’s proposed budget “will help reduce the deficit by $400 billion over the next decade to the lowest level since Dwight Eisenhower was president.”
About the Sequester:
“If the sequester hits, federal prosecutors will have to “let criminals go.”
“Federally assisted programs like Meals on Wheels would be able to serve 4 million fewer meals to seniors.”
“There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips” because of sequestration.
“70,000 young children would be kicked off Head Start” –
“Up to 70,000 children would lose access to Head Start and early Head Start services.”
This list only includes the lies that Barack Hussein Obama told up to 2013. If I had listed all of his lies to date , this would not simply be an article anymore, it would rival the Encyclopedia Britannica in terms of depth and volume.
Statistics: Back during the Clinton Administration, Bubba never made a decision without checking the poll numbers on the subject beforehand. During Obama’s First and now, Second Terms, the Pollsters are blatantly weighting their poll samples, both ideologically and geographically, to make sure they reflect the results that this Administration, the Democratic Party, and their puppet masters, like Mr. Soros, want to hear.And, to ensure that Hillary Clinton wins the presidency.
A great example of that strategy is “gay marriage”. If you looked at all the Polls, and listen to all of the Liberal Talking Heads on the cable news channels discussing them, you would think that America is 99.98% behind LeRoy and Festus gettin’ hitched. However, when you take a look at a map showing the results of state referendums on the subject, you see that while 9 Northern States approved it, 30 other states stood firmly against changing the definition of marriage, refusing to treat a sexual preference as a civil right.
Polls are one of the ways in which Liberals and reality travel on two divergent paths. Too much weed during their wonder years is another reason, but, that’s a subject for another blog.
Scheming Progressives figured out a long time ago that because low information voters tend to believe every poll they see, and they do not take the time to look at the sampling, polls are a very effective tool with which to sway the uninformed masses.
Notice that the breakdown of the political parties of those registered voters involved in National Polls conducted by Liberal Organizations and the Main Stream Media (but, I repeat myself) is always left out.
As has been demonstrated in the past with a detailed sampling of other national polls, and now substantiated by the above e-mail, the accepted practice in modern poll conducting is to oversample national polls with Democrats, in order to discourage average Americans from voting.
That being said, I, among the overwhelming majority of average Americans here in the Heartland believe Trump is actually ahead, despite what Liberals and their minions in the Main Stream Media want us to believe.
However, Trump still needs all Americans with a conscience on board, in order to secure a victory on November 8 and to defeat a candidate who will most surely continue Barack Hussein Obama’s Presidency, which has taken this nations straight to the edge of a bottomless abyss.
So, there you have it.
One of America’s two main political parties, powered by, as Gallup Polls continue to show, the minority political ideology known as Progressivism or Liberalism, has been engaged for decades in a political strategy to radically change American values and culture, through a propaganda campaign of lies, one more outrageous than the last, spoken and spread, until citizens believe them to be the truth.
Wow. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? What was that guy’s name? You know…the one with the funny mustache.
