The 3 boxes of freedom; the soap box, the ballot box and the ammo box
WASHINGTON – The embattled community activist group ACORN appears to be collecting charitable contributions through affiliate organizations that it then uses for impermissible lobbying and political activity, says the Republican staff of the Senate Finance Committee.
The assessment, in a memo to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, further fuels the controversy surrounding ACORN, formally known as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.
Documents released by a Senate Republican on Thursday show that leaders of the ACORN community organizing network transferred several million dollars in charitable and government money meant for the poor to arms of the group that have political and sometimes profit-making missions.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/24/AR2009092404249.html?wprss=rss_politics
The GOP staff memo says ACORN-affiliated charities are being used to raise money which is then funneled to other charities or other organizations for purposes other than what a donor may have intended.
ACORN, the parent entity, is not tax-exempt, but dozens of ACORN affiliates around the country are tax-exempt.
"Frankly, it's not something I've followed closely," Mr. Obama claimed, adding he wasn't even aware the group had been the recipient of significant federal funding. "This is not the biggest issue facing the country. It's not something I'm paying a lot of attention to," he said. Mr. Obama added that an investigation of Acorn was appropriate after an amateur hidden-camera investigation had found Acorn offices willing to abet prostitution, but he carefully declined to say whether he would approve a federal cutoff of funds to the group.
Mr. Obama took great pains to act as if he barely knew about Acorn. In fact, his association goes back almost 20 years.
Confirming the literary detective work of WND columnist Jack Cashill prior to the 2008 election, author Christopher Andersen says in a newly released book that former domestic terrorist William Ayers( ex-terrorist)helped Barack Obama write the president's highly acclaimed memoir "Dreams from My Father." http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=110784
Evidence continues to mount that Barack Obama had substantial help from Bill Ayers(ex-terrorist) in the creation of his 1995 book, Dreams From My Father, a book that Time Magazine has called “the best-written memoir ever produced by an American politician.”
I thought he was "just a guy in the hood".
Sen. Barack Obama's pastor says blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but "God damn America."
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor for the last 20 years at the Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago's south side, has a long history of what even Obama's campaign aides concede is "inflammatory rhetoric," including the assertion that the United States brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism."
And we are to believe Obama never heard him say anything derogatory. Even when he heard 500 of his sermons. Did they take naive out of the dictionary?
John Holdren, Obama's Science Czar, says: Forced abortions and mass sterilization needed to save the planet
In 1971, John Holdren edited and contributed an essay to a book entitled Global Ecology: Readings Toward a Rational Strategy for Man. He wrote (along with colleague Paul Ehrlich) the book’s sixth chapter, called “Overpopulation and the Potential for Ecocide.” the climate scientist speaks about the probable likelihood of a “new ice age” caused by human activity.
Where does Obama get these wackos from?
The Obamatarts will say "that doesn't mean anything".
