President Obama's 2011 tax returns reveal that he made charitable donations to 39 organizations (totaling $172,130). Of those 39 organizations, one is so shocking, so scandalous, that it may justifiably derail his chances in 2012.

And he will have only himself to blame.

The culprit – which stunningly stands out in stark relief – can be seen in this image taken from his returns:

Obama Donations
If you notice, the largest donation Obama made – $117,130 – went to a shady organization with unmistakable communist ties. That organization, The Fisher House, is infiltrating many of our military complexes. It's shaping the minds and lives of many of our country's future communal and political elite. And because of donations like Obama's, its influence is growing.

Here's how they unabashedly describe themselves:

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Departments of Defense and Veterans Affairs.

Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.


There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment. Annually, the Fisher House program serves more than 17,000 families, and have made available over four million days of lodging to family members since the program originated in 1990. By law, there is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs; and Fisher House Foundation uses donations to reimburse the individual Fisher Houses operated by the Army, Navy, and Air Force. No family pays to stay at any Fisher House!

Look at how, without any shame, this organization proclaims: "No family pays to stay at any Fisher House!" And their language of "comfort homes" to describe these socialist conclaves is downright unnerving. Nay, infuriating.

This type of empathy, of socialist-inspired generosity toward our country's ailing veterans, will be President Obama's undoing, and for good reason.

We simply cannot allow such communist-linked activities to infiltrate the White House.

No matter how beautiful.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
