"Secret Income 14?" re: extra income "Obama makes" every month commercial?

Last edited Sat Jan 4, 2014, 12:06 PM - Edit history (1)

I was half asleep this morning when I heard this weird commercial on WGN in Chicago. It involved a dialogue between 2 guys. The first one says, in a very belligerent, angry manner - "Did you hear OBAMA is making a special income (I think that's the way it was phrased) every month?" Second guy responds" How is OBAMA getting that money?" more anger. Then the first guy says to google up this "Special Income 14" website and then he (second guy) can learn how to get it, too.

I'm paraphrasing the exact words but, in essence, that's what they said - regarding "special" monthly income or "Extra" monthly income.

They referred to President Obama in an insulting manner like he was ripping people off with some scam. Anyone else hear this?

I just edited in a corrected title ("secret" from "special") as I heard the ad again - here is the only internet connection I could find and it doesn't make sense:

2. I'm sure he gets royalties from his books. I think I read somewhere it's donated to charity. nt

13. For Obama - that is what they are talking about.

In general - they are talking about buying something which generates royalties to create an ongoing income stream.

3. i just heard that this morning in the car

i was going to post about it but forgot.

Very odd. Starts by saying Obama took a 5% pay cut to match the cuts federal workers were getting from the sequester. Then goes into the thing about the "secret income" he's getting, and you can too!

5. Yes, that's right - first they referred to a paycut he took...couldn't figure out where they were

going ...but when they referred to him by last name and seemed angry I figured it was an anti Obama screed.

6. I saw an ad/article that Michelle was also making secret money,

but I didn't open it to find out how she was doing so.

From the few articles I've seen or been sent during the past couple days, I'd say to be prepared. The Repubs are loaded for bear to take over the senate and anything their childish imaginations can manufacture is going to hit the Net and media. It will be a continuous flood and as nasty as we've ever seen.

I think it will backfire, as voters don't like nasty campaigns and the Repubs have already burnt their candles at both ends. People are upset with them for being an historic do-nothing congress, so I think this tactic will burn them in the butts. That's why I have restocked my supply of popcorn.

Don't let down your guard. Expose every trick as soon as you see it pop up.

7. I think it has something to do with mineral rights

I looked it up a year or 2 ago. They play on all the rw radio shows and each station gets their own # (like 14) so the site knows where the traffic is coming from.

14. They sounded quite disrespectful towards the President and it was strange as it was on WGN

which is not especially right wing and considered classy for an AM station.

9. Just another in a long line of fear-mongering get-rich/BS scams

"Learn the simple money-making secrets the rich and the government don't want you to know! Just make five payments of ninety-nine ninety-nine and untold wealth can be yours!"

Too ridiculous.

12. Royalties on his book -

The Audacity of Hope.

The idea is to do or buy something which generates royalties and collect the royalties forever. Their current suggestion is to invest in property containing oil and minerals

Just go to the website in the whois report and listen to the hype speech.

17. He actually does -

He wrote a book which creates an ongoing revenue stream from sales.

That's how royalties work. You make an investment (time, creative energy, money) in something which is licenseable - and as people buy whatever it is, you get money.

They're just adding creative names (Secret Income 14, or Mainz) to make it sound mysterious and underhanded. No idea where Money14 comes from, but Mainz comes from an early printing press which made mass production of books (and an ongoing revenue stream) a realistic option.
