Michelle Obama and Her Poison Apple

By Bridgette

Michelle Obama is on the cover of the March 22nd Newsweek. Nothing unusual about that by itself since Newsweek has had a love affair with the Communist duo since November, 2008. It is entitled “Feed Your Children Well: My Fight Against Childhood Obesity,” and it was written by the airbrushed Michelle. What is unusual is the other symbol that sits in front of her. How interesting that she wants to “Feed Our Children,”  and we ask what does she have in her garden of knowledge that we might want?

The double entrendre tells it all! She wants to feed our children the Marxist idea of a Utopian socialist/communist society! This time an apple a day won’t keep the doctor away!

Much like the Acorn Cookies that took the shape of an ACORN, but also that of the Marxist Revolutionary Che Guevara, this was a slap in the face of the visitors and of all Americans. Those were served as a “delightful” White House dessert. Also occurring at Christmas at the White House, Christmas bulbs showed the face of another Marxist despotic tyrant, Mao Zedong of China. The Marxist couple who are trying to transform our USA shows her real side in this photo with the apple of her eye…Karl Marx, a revolutionary communist. Did you catch it?

Do we need any other symbols to show the toxic attitudes and ideology of the Usurper and his wife? Does Newsweek consider this funny? This is an outrage and should inflame all Patriots! Do the American people find it hilarious? The old idiom “he is the apple of my eye” means that someone is cherished above others.   You place Karl Marx above all others?  How utterly repulsive Michelle!

Both of you have ruined our People’s House with your beliefs that are the very antithesis of our Republic and our United States. What a radical you and your husband have shown yourselves to be and both of you are the USA’s greatest embarrassment. Your place in American history won’t be one that others revere. Your names will be associated with anti-Americanism, corruption, deceit, treason, and tyranny.

Michelle, I have edited one of your sentences with a slight change that I added at the end.  “Instead, it’s about what all of us can do to help our kids lead active, healthy lives:  parents making healthier choices for their families; mayors and governors doing their part to build healthier cities and states; and the private sector doing its part as well..”  To do that Michelle, We the People Must and Will Eliminate you and your Marxist revolutionaries from having any influence on our children, in our government, or in our lives.  Eliminating your party and irradicating the progressive/Communist movement is a diet that we can consume as you and your ilk and your radical ideology are destroyed.

I think I lost my sense of humor and my lunch when viewing your poison apple!   Michelle, your photo with the apple of your eye just ensured that We the People will Shun you and yours. You and your supporting anti-American progressives aren’t going to be feeding our society or our children anything much longer.  We are aware of your agenda, and Americans of every race and color are rising up to put a stop to it.

The warm scent and flavor of baking apples is a sure sign that Fall is just around the corner. You and your husband’s Fall is coming soon. The American people are going to see to it. Your goose is cooked! Rotten apples have no place in our country, and in your family the apples don’t fall to far from the tree.  May this Newsweek cover be your undoing, and may the next apple you bite be as poisonous as what you planned for our country!

Michelle Obama On Childhood Obesity: “This Isn’t Something We Can Fix With A Bill In Congress”

  1. The fact that she has indicated that she has an interest in preventing obesity is fine. The problem neither she nor her husband are to be trusted. Please, if interested look at my conservative blog at http://www.donottreadonus.wordpress.com and comment. It would seem that we have less than a week before another of our freedoms might be stolen from us.

  2. From Sunday:

    Today in History
    Today is Sunday, March 14, the 73rd day of 2010. In 1883, German political philosopher Karl Marx died in London at age 64.

    • Oh, this has to be a “coincidence”…I wonder if his name appears on the communist’s calendars as a holiday to celebrate?

      • Oh sure it is just a reflection and shadows and it isn’t meant to be a person!! Certainly not Karl Marx!!

        The face has a beard so if it is a face it must be the face of a yogi who preached good nutrition. Maybe Maharishi Mahesh Yogi or Yogi Bejen or some such Yogi who preached vegetarianism and fasting!!

        That ‘ll keep those kids skinny. Veggies and fasting.

  3. I have an unresistable urge to grab her from behind her head and slam her face down onto the table in front of her. Let her swallow Karl Marx!!

    Newsweek needs to be ran out of business. Clearly they are a Marxist, communist ran magazine. This is totally inexcusable, two years ago this would never have been accepted. “WHY” now do these publishers think they can push their communist agenda? Is it because now that they have complicity helped in getting a Marxist, communist into the white house to help push their agenda, and now feel they can push Marxist policies freely?

    Think again Newsweek/New York Post, Just remember – We Americans NEVER forget.

    • The Washington Post Company also publishes Newsweek Magazine. Newsweek is a weekly news magazine published around the world and headquartered in New York City. Newsweek offers 12 editions, appearing in more than 190 countries, with a total circulation of about four million. Originally called News-Week, the magazine was founded in 1933 by Thomas J.C. Martyn.


      • Makes sense doesn’t it that Newsweek is published by the liberal Washington Post. Absolutely astounding that they are being so blantant in their communist agenda! I hope this cover bankrupts Newsweek! Americans should send Newsweek an expression of their ire…not only by letter but by not purchasing one more magazine or unsubscribing!

      • Leza,

        One of the editors(?) at Newsweek is Evan Thomas, the one who said obama is God, with Tingle Matthews witnessing in the background..

  4. Failure To Check Out Obama’s Record Has Led To Catastrophe

    By HERB DENENBERG, The Bulletin
    Friday, March 05, 2010

    One of the great catastrophes of American history came to pass because the mainstream media and the public failed to look at the record and associates of a candidate for president, Barack Hussein Obama. We elected a candidate fraudulently sold as a pragmatic mainstream moderate. His record revealed the opposite — a rabid left-wing ideologue dedicated to extremism, socialism, and anti-Americanism.


  5. Deadly Triumvirate Destroying America

    By HERB DENENBERG, The Bulletin
    Friday, March 12, 2010

    Snip –

    Perhaps the primary blame should be assigned to the mainstream media, which gave Barack Hussein Obama a free pass. The mainstream media by and large reported only the positive news on Mr. Obama. They downplayed or censored out all the negative news, as documented by Bernard Goldberg in his important book, A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (But Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media.

    His record was clear. He associated with bigots, racists, terrorists, America-haters and others, which citizens of the greatest country in the history of the world would almost automatically avoid. He had a record of radical leftism and liberalism and one of the most highly partisan records. He broke key campaign promises even before the campaign was over, such as his promise to take public funding for his campaign. He showed a propensity to prevaricate, as when he claimed to have never really heard the radical views of his pastor of 20 years, Rev. Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, who was also his close associate. His record revealed no substantial accomplishments, but an opportunist who merely used his positions as jumping off to the next occupational advancement. He arrived in the Senate, and almost immediately started running for the presidency, leaving behind a legacy of virtually no accomplishment. He had a record of saying what voters wanted to hear, despite his record, his associates, and his real values and views. During the campaign and during his presidency, he has lied on almost every important occasion. He knows his friends in the mainstream media won’t blow the whistle on him.


  6. By the way Bridgette, excellent post. Thank you once again for your excellent journalism.

  7. Newsweek article on M. O. Really it is. Honest.


  8. Rosemary Woodhouse

    Oh, if only she would top hiding her rather obese lower half behind desks and podiums, the hypocrisy of yet another Obama “plank” would be exposed for the joke it is!

  9. Bridgette: This is an amazing catch and an amazing post and an amazing situation. WHY does nobody see or complain about this obvious, Communist (or is it Islamic) symbolism? WTF is going on?

    That OBVIOUSLY is not a normal apple. Whoever that face belongs to, it was deliberately put there. And there’s no way they would have pulled that on Fugly Flo if she didn’t know and approve of it.

    Newsweek owes every American an explanation. BOYCOTT the hell out of that publication and its parent company, too.

    I’m sick and tired of their juvenile, in-your-face symbolic mocking of We the People.

    btw, the link to the Tapper article doesn’t work. You have to remove one of the https at the beginning. WordPress must put an extra one in.

    Newsweek is now cropping the photo, removing that RED apple. Poison apple, indeed.

    DOES anybody out there have eyes to see?!!!!

    Her program is designed to spend millions of OUR tax dollars to bring healthy food to underserved communities. ACORN, SEIU, and selected ones will get the dough. More community organizing and redistribution under the guise of caring for “the children.”

  10. Could this be an Alinsky drop of water in the blogosphere puddle, so the waves drown out articles on the healthcare “deeming” farce? Meant to distract and misdirect? It’s too obvious. It has to be a move in their game.

    Or . . .

    Did some subversive Tea Partier on the Newsweek staff photoshop the image to make a valid point?

    Enquiring minds want to know.

  11. Bridge
    Incredible post…great catch
    Is that a crown on his head????

    • I can see how you think it is a crown, and I can see it as devil’s horns too. Yet I think it is the shadow of the core of the apple that is giving it that look.

  12. Read the comments at HillBuzz. Some think this was an Alinsky diversion and others think Michelle was “punked” and suggest that the image is even soft porn, if you look at it in a certain way. Too funny.

  13. Remember when that photographer tricked McCain into posing and then produced those nasty photos of him as a vampire? Is this a Tea-Party-minded photog doing a little payback?

  14. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grigori_Rasputin

    Great post Bridgette. I have been pondering this since you posted it.

  15. This was one of the other citations that I didn’t reference..and Lynn references the apple. More importantly, was her reference to Tree House /Wal-mart when Michelle served on the Board. We researched her Tree House connections before, but it might be good to look at those again.

    Now we have MO who will be taking grocery stores to task…to put stores in “desert” areas. Will she have lawmakers force legislation on stores to put them where it isn’t economically feasible?

    Michelle Obama Takes Anti-Obesity Drive to Food Makers
    Posted: 03/15/10 Lynn Sweet

    First lady Michelle Obama will test the limits of her bully pulpit Tuesday when she tells the Grocery Manufacturers Association about voluntary moves the food industry can make to reduce childhood obesity.

    This comes as Mrs. Obama graces the cover of Newsweek, with the headline “Feed Your Children Well” over a photo of her with an apple on a table. Inside the magazine, she writes about the epidemic of childhood obesity in America, all tied to her “Let’s Move” campaign, launched on Feb. 9 with a goal of solving this problem in a generation.

    The question is: Will Mrs. Obama play hardball with the food industry if need be?

    Mrs. Obama at TreeHouse

    In 2005, while an executive at the University of Chicago Medical Center, Mrs. Obama joined the TreeHouse Foods board. According to tax returns released by the Obamas, she earned $51,200 from the company in 2006.

    Mrs. Obama quit the board in May 2007 in the midst of her husband’s campaign for the presidency — where union support was crucial — eight days after then-candidate Obama said he would not shop at Wal-Mart because of its anti-union activities. TreeHouse was a Wal-Mart vendor. In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, TreeHouse said Mrs. Obama’s resignation was “not due to any disagreement with the company on any matter.”


  16. This is so intentional, doe’s anyone no when this edition of newsweek is supposed to be released on the news stands?

    My guess,,,,about the same time they sign the health care bill……:evil: Grrrrrr

    The image is in the apple here also –




  17. “Sunshine, go away today
    I don’t feel much like dancin’
    Some man’s come, he’s tried to run my life
    Don’t know what he’s asking

    He tells me I better get in line,
    Can’t hear what he’s sayin’
    When I grow up, I’m gonna make him mind
    These ain’t dues I’ve been payin’

    How much does it cost? I’ll buy it
    The time is all we’ve lost, I’ll try it
    He can’t even run his own life
    I’ll be damned if he’ll run mine, Sunshine…

    Sunshine go away today
    I don’t feel much like dancin’
    Some man’s come, he’s tried to run my life
    Don’t know what he’s askin’

    Workin’ starts to make me wonder where
    Fruits of what I do are going
    When he says in love and war all is fair
    He’s got cards he ain’t showin’

    How much does it cost? I’ll buy it

    This old world, she’s gonna turn around
    Brand new bells’ll be ringing”

    On now.


  20. Rosemary Woodhouse

    I apologize. I must have been tired when I originally posted. HOLY CRAP!

  21. When Bridgette first posted her article I thought, “There must be some mistake. There must be a trick of light.”

    I went to the Newsweek website and saw the Michelle cover and was astounded to see the Marx apple, right there big as life.

    This cover is the Obama administration’s announcement that they are secure in their power and “coming out” in the open with their Marxist views and agenda and openly working as Marxists.

    What traitors!!!

  22. I’m afraid that I have to agree with you, Sleuth. Although O’Bobble did appear off his game last night. Worried? I hope so. He needs to worry.

    Did you see this?


    Have even the Mormons gone over to the dark side? Did they fudge their wonderful records for That One, aided and abetted by Reid? I’d love to see what actual documents they based that genealogy on.

    • Worried? He is now cancelling his trip to Indonesia..to continue the “battle” for healthcare reform! Guess those votes aren’t lining up for the vote this weekend. This means we get to hear more of him and this again and again and again. He would sign the bill even if unconstitutional (Slaughter bill) …according to Gibbs. This was just said by Gibbs in answer to a reporter.

      Deaf, dumb, and now downright idiotic..the fate of his presidency depends on this! His fate is already known..he is a TWAP.

    • I would guess they have the genealogy based on the Dunham family starting with Stanley Ann, then her father etc. Whether or not those are his parents wouldn’t be known, but now that family is followed by lineage connections through historical records. The same would be true for Madelyn’s family.

      If they started with me, they wouldn’t have my records, but those of my parents would be in census records, social security records, air force records, and church documents, etc. He gave his alleged parent’s names and they follow from there.

      It would be more important to see if that Dr. cousin has any photos from childhood or other documents to prove he was part of the family. Or did he learn about their relationship when the family names were released?

  23. Now they’re saying he won’t go to Indonesia until JUNE! Can you believe this? What’s he afraid of? Do they need more time to put together the payoff in return for those insect-eaten documents? Or is he afraid of being protested? Chicken! Buck, buck, buck.

    • Perhaps one of those payoffs that we don’t know about yet is for Hawaii who had a “natural” disaster that gives them something in the healthcare bill. All states that incurred some disaster will be covered with something special? That was a new one. I guess Texas would get something also since we had a hurricane disaster.

      CBO just posted $940 B cost over 10 years. They still removed $500 B from Medicare funding. That will make medicare stronger…oh sure. The money is siphoned off of Medicare and spent other places.

      • Tom Colburn just told Democrats that if any new appropriations or special deals are made in their districts they better be ready to defend how they got those new buildings, etc. because that could show that their votes were purchased and it was a bribe. Buying votes is disgraceful! If you changed your vote from no to yes you will be under scrutiny.

    • My guess is that he knows the war with Iran will start soon and he doesn’t want
      to be in a muslim country even though he
      is one himself though nobody knows that.

  24. I would like to send some photographs in response to bridgetteb and Miri, supposedly of the Obama lineage. How would I do this?

  25. It is two files with pictures that I have saved in my email

  26. I have to look further for the pictures but have posted a document I received regarding a time he spent in Indonesia as a nine year old. The information(sic) is in Indonesian. I have to figure out how to PDF the entire email and then turn it into a JPG for posting. The only thing I was able to copy, for the moment was the document.

  27. Feed Your Children Well is basically the song by
    Yusuf Islam formerly known as Cat Stevens.

    Yusuf Islam has now been banned from entering the USA because
    he gives money to islamic terrorist organizations masquerading as charities.

    You can’t miss stuff like this, else you won’t know ahy
    Air Farce One is dive bombing New York or why Petraeus has been ordered to put the Palestinian territories under US protection.


  29. Obama Declares War on the Jewish Nation

    you knew it was coming but you didn’t want to believe it

    This a Lame Cherry piece but I could post Debka as well:

    If it ain’t broke, break it
    As this blog exclusively broke the series of stories, the Obama regime has set about an illegal attack upon the Jewish Government in Israel, involving a premeditated set up over Jewish housing which was fed to them by Defense Minister Ehud Barak.
    The Obama criminals were Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, James Jones, with Gang of Six intelligence operatives run by George Mitchell.

    The AFP story now confirming what this blog noted has now gone further in impugning the honor of all Jews in calling the Israeli government a “regime” which needs to be changed.
    Imagine this Obama slap now in Jews are not just to stand around and be incinerated by Iranian nukes, but now Obama who said Jews were disgusting, has added to this that Jews are not bright enough to elect their own Government and they need a coup coming out of America to decide things for them.

    This is the ultimate slap for Jews worldwide from the Muslim mafia funded Obama.

    The most chilling on this is a comment from Aaron David Miller who worked as a negotiator for both Republican and Democratic administrations:

    “Is this about regime change, or is it about (Israeli) behavior modification?

    Because either way, it’s going to be a rocky ride.

    If it’s the former, then I think we’re naive in the extreme in thinking that we will be able to produce and somehow manage that.”
    Miller confirmed exactly what was noted here in when John Kennedy conducted regime change in South Vietnam all hell broke loose for years and was partly responsible for the quagmire of that war.

    Onto this when Zbigniew Brzezinski removed the Shah of Iran, for the communist Khomeni, the world has had nothing but murder, mayhem and death for over 30 years.

    Look what James Baker festered up in his regime change in Israel in an Israeli Prime Minister assassinated. Bill Clinton removed Netanyahu for Barak and that brought Intifada and the Olmert Lebanon war.

    It is past time that these patricians stop playing with Israeli as some Democratic Union in Chicago which they can topple Jimmy Hoffa and not expect bad things to happen when things are destabilized.

    This is criminal in what is happening as Obama, Clinton and Mitchell are with the Palestinian Authority staging riots in Jerusalem, along with television cameras to shatter the Israeli Government. Inciting riots and people being hurt are exactly what Hitler did against Jews and are crimes.
    For those who do not care or those who think this is what Jews deserve, I caution that they remember that Israel has nuclear bombs. The Jews are parts of every government in the world. These Jews can when roused cause more problems for any government than they can handle.
    The nuclear factor is intense as with Israel being weakened she will be attacked. As the situation escalates with Obama abandoning the Middle East, that means weapons of mass destruction will become involved.

    Who has almost 200,000 Soldiers in that theater? America.

    What will happen to oil prices in that region with more Soros speculation? Gas at 20 dollars a gallon.

    Who will come in and fill the Obama void? China and Russia, meaning socialist India is all that is left in Asia and nothing is left for Russian expansion into Europe.

    America being humiliated in losing Iraqi Green Zone and Saudi bases, followed up with German and Italian bases overrun by Russians, and one has thermonuclear trip wires against America.

    Any of these scenarios from nuclear armed Persia using nuclear arms against America in proxy terror to the Russian or Chinese nukes, all point to the disaster of destabilizing Jews as pull on Israel and Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Iraq fall.
    That is the stupidity of what Obama and his thugs have been initiating and people have to understand that in beating on Jews, that situation turns to American cities incinerated fast, as Jews are the line in the Middle East which keeps the war focus there.

    None of this ever turns out good for America in Americans start ending up dead in the chaos. Barack Hussein Obama has a plan, if it ain’t broke, break it.

    America will be broken by his meddling in Jewish politics.


    • Dave

      Incredible post…….So many do not realize how essential Israel is to stability of the world…..
      It is such a small country on such a tiny piece of land, yet they possess the heartbeat of the civiliation.

      They are of the few countries that realize how important freedom is and the people are among the few that are willing to fight and die to rather than give in to oppression.

      They have had the courage to survive against all odds.

    • dave m,

      This is just mind blowing……He is out of control, So now 0bama thinks that he is King of Israel?

      From debka:

      A much-admired American military figure, CENTCOM chief, Gen. David Petraeus, was the next US official to put this linkage into words. In his briefing to a Senate panel, he said Wednesday, March 16: Clearly the tensions on these issues [with Israel] have enormous effect on the strategic context in which we operate in the Central Command’s area of responsibility.”

      The general denied he had as yet formally asked for the Palestinian territories to be transferred to his command, but added: “In fact, staff members at various times have discussed asking for the Palestinian territories to be added to CENTCOM’s turf.”

      ** debkafile’s military sources explain that, if approved, this step would be tantamount to providing the Palestinians with an American military umbrella against Israel.


      Maybe this is why Obama is giving Pakistan $1.2 BILLION dollars to fund Palestinians umbrella against Israel?? Has this been in Obamas sick twisted plans all along??

      I just posted this, here –



      $1.2 billion to Pakistan –

      A new understanding for the U.S. and Pakistan?Feb 11, 2010 News & Events, Pakistan

      (this is a pakistani news blog found on the web)

      And recently, President Obama asked Congress for an additional $500 million to support Pakistan. If approved, the ‘Pakistan Counterinsurgency Capability Fund’ would jump to $1.2 billion in the fiscal year beginning on October 1, 2010, and the money under the fund would be used to train and equip the Pakistan military to fight militants more effectively along the Afghan border.

    545 PEOPLE
    By Charlie Reese
    Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
    Have you ever wondered if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits?
    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?
    You and I don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.
    You and I don’t have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations.
    The House of Representatives does.
    You and I don’t write the tax code, Congress does.
    You and I don’t set fiscal policy, Congress does.
    You and I don’t control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.
    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one president, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 apparently inept selfish human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.
    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason… They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a president to do one cotton-picking thing. I don’t care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator’s responsibility to determine how he votes.
    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.
    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million can not replace 545 people who stand convicted — by present facts — of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can’t think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.
    If the tax code is unfair, it’s because they want it unfair…
    If the budget is in the red, it’s because they want it in the red…
    If the Army & Marines remain in IRAQ , it’s because they want them in IRAQ …
    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it’s because they want it that way…
    If they preclude themselves from Public Health Insurance in favor of a lucrative for their selves alone, it is because they believe they alone deserve better…
    There are no insoluble government problems…
    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like “the economy,” “inflation,” or “politics” that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.
    Those 545 people and they alone, are responsible.
    They and they alone, have the power.
    They and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.
    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees.
    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    NEW YORK, March 18 (Reuters) – A wealthy businessman who raised money for leading Democratic Party politicians, including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, pleaded guilty on Thursday to defrauding three major banks out of $292.2 million in loan transactions.

    Hassan Nemazee, 60, who once ran a private equity firm, admitted in Manhattan federal court to defrauding Bank of America Corp (BAC.N) of more than $142 million, Citigroup Inc (C.N) of $74.9 million and HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA.L) of $74.9 million to pay his debt to Citigroup.

    During the plea proceeding, Iranian-born Nemasee, who owned several multimillion dollar properties and had interests in various companies and hedge funds, said he had tried to get out of financial difficulty starting in the 1990s.

    "It was my intention to repay … but the hole that I dug was larger and I borrowed more," said the gray-haired, dapper Nemazee, who appeared embarrassed and contrite.

    "I am deeply ashamed of my conduct, for the harm that I inflicted on the banks and most especially my family," he told U.S. District Judge Sidney Stein in a sombre voice as family members sat in court.

    Nemazee, a former member of the board of the Iranian American Political Action Committee, was a U.S. citizen whose family left Iran after the revolution there in 1979.

    The committee contributes to candidates for public office in the United States regardless of party affiliation and works to support Iranian American candidates and issues important to that community, such as immigration.

    Nemazee admitted to three charges of bank fraud and one charge of wire fraud. Prosecutors said he had obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in loans from the banks and used fake documents to show supposed ownership of collateral.


    Nemazee was listed as one of the top "bundlers" of contributions to Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, according to OpenSecrets.org, a website run by the Center for Responsive Politics.

    He typically donated more than $100,000 annually to Democratic Party political candidates, including Obama and now-U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    Nemazee faces forfeiture of $292.2 million and restitution of $217.3 million. He agreed to forfeit interests in properties, corporate entities, hedge funds, securities accounts, bank accounts, a 2008 Maserati Quattroporte and a 2007 Cessna aircraft.

    The judge allowed Nemazee to remain free on $25 million bail but under house arrest with electronic monitoring in his Manhattan apartment.

    His lawyer, Paul Shechtman, successfully argued that his client was not a flight risk, but out of concern that he had property overseas and perhaps tens of millions of dollars to his name, he was ordered to surrender on April 30.

    The judge said that would give him time to get his affairs in order before sentencing on June 30.

    Prosecutors said the fraud took place from 1998 until Nemazee's arrest in August 2009 as he was about to make a trip overseas.

    The office of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and the FBI said Nemazee had used proceeds from his scheme to make donations to election campaigns of federal, state and local candidates, political action committees and charities.

    They said he also bought property in Italy and paid for maintenance on two properties in New York.

    The Democratic National Committee declined to comment, but an official said it had been previously announced that the affected donations would go to charity.

    The offenses call for a maximum possible prison term of 30 years but the judge said that under federal guidelines following his guilty plea, Nemazee faced a sentence of between 15 years, eight months and 19 years, seven months.

    U.S. prosecutor Daniel Levy told the court the government had committed considerable resources to tracking down Nemazee's wealth and believed he was still worth millions.

    "There is a big hole of money we have just not been able to find," Levy said.

    The case is USA v Nemazee, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York No. 09-902. (Reporting by Grant McCool, additional reporting by Jeff Mason; Editing by Andre Grenon, Richard Chang and Ted Kerr)
