Smoke Meet Gun? Obama Busted...
The incredible photographer and researcher known to all of us as Zombie has really outdone himself this time.
This is truly breathtaking......
Hey Barry....I call major bullshit on you.
Barack Obama's Close Encounter with the Weather Underground
Did the presidential candidate and the revolutionary terror group cross paths at a violent 1981 anti-Apartheid protest?
posted: October 27, 2008
Barack Obama would have you believe that the bombings by the radical domestic terrorists known as The Weather Underground were something that happened "when I was eight years old" and with which he had absolutely no connection. And while it is true that their bombings started when Obama was eight years old, they actually continued until he was twenty years old. And, incredibly, the life of Barack Obama and the terror campaign of the Weather Underground nearly intersected on the evening of September 26, 1981 at an anti-Apartheid protest which turned violent at John F. Kennedy Airport in New York.
Remember when Obama said this:
I spent a lot of time in the library. I didn't socialize that much. I was like a monk.Now think about this:
Obama became more serious during his sophomore year, taking dense philosophy courses, becoming involved with the Black Students' Association and a campaign to divest funds from apartheid South Africa. He got his first taste of the allure of public speaking at a rally for the anti-apartheid campaign, where he played the role of an activist giving a speech in a piece of street theater. After a few opening remarks, white students dressed in paramilitary uniforms were to come on stage and drag him away. As it happened, after he got through his opening remarks:
I stopped. The crowd was quiet now, watching me. Somebody started to clap. "Go on with it Barack," somebody else shouted. "Tell it like it is." Then the others started in, clapping, cheering, and I knew that I had them, that the connection had been made....

Another Bill Ayers Tape Shows Up....
Aside from the fact that Billy "the bomber" Ayers looks exactly like a baby parakeet in drag...he is a very dangerous sociopathic socialist.
Just listen to what he has to say in this 2000 radio interview.......it's hard to tell him and Barack Hussein Obama apart sometimes...........
Gosh...I wonder why.......
Hat Tip to Cromagnum... good find!
If, like me, you have a YAHOO account your personal information is not only at risk, it has most likely already been stolen.
Just today I received an email from one of the three Hags from Hell politicians in San Francisco and to my great surprise it had my entire real name attached to it.
Now, why is this surprising?
Well, first of all...when I created that account I didn't use my real name...at all. Like many people that write, have a blog, or do any kind of political research when you get that extra email address you don' t want your actual name on it.
Names lead to phone numbers which lead to addresses and in this day and age of nutty MoonBat behavior...well, it would just be plain stupid to help someone make your life miserable.
But now it seems YAHOO has done all the work for the bad guys...... what a surprise.
No, seriously I am shocked, not surprised. Some employee or higher up stole my personal information to sell or give to a politician so the politician could spam me.....with YAHOO's blessings.
I know what lengths these people had to go to to get my entire real name...so trust me, this wasn't some easy random moment kind of thing.....
Heck, all the jerks that try to hack into my blog hundreds of times a day know what kind of security I use....they could tell you.
ME-100,000 THEM -0
And yes, it is just YAHOO...hardly what I would consider a secure source for anything, except according to them they are a secure source...and in order for them to connect my name to this account they had to violate state and federal laws.
Does that even count anymore?

First Charges...More Coming?
Umm....don't count on it. The DOJ is in the tank for Obama.
From Michelle Malkin:
Toledo Police have confirmed that a TPD records clerk is accused of performing an illegal search of information related to ‘Joe the Plumber.’
Julie McConnell, has been charged with Gross Misconduct for allegedly making an improper inquiry into a state database in search of information pertaining to Samuel Wurzelbacher on Oct. 16.
Wurzelbacher came under the spotlight after being spoken about during the final presidential debate between Barack Obama and John McCain.
The inquiry into Wurzelbacher’s record is a violation of department and state policy governing the use of the Law Enforcement Automated Data System. The clerk is under fire for making the inquiry for a non-law enforcement purpose.
McConnell was hired by the Toledo Police Department in April 1995 and assigned to the Investigative Services Bureau.
Now if they would only arrest the director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services and big Obama donor and supporter Helen Jones-Kelley who is responsible for even more illegal and unethical snooping on a private citizen just because he had the nerve to ask Barack "bow to your new overlord" Obama a question about his socialist ways.
Did Helen Jones-Kelley violate the Hatch Act?
She certainly violated common American decency and freedoms that we all thought we could take for granted.
Don't expect the Justice Department to be looking into this anytime soon...it seems as if they have been infiltrated by the first wave of O-bots. According the WSJ, just two weeks after attorneys that are supposed to enforce the voting regulations met with left wing activist groups they decided to abandon the practice of sending criminal attorneys to the polling places and these same lawyers are donors to Barack Obama.
A quarter of a million dollars has been given to the Obama campaign by DOJ employees.....see a problem yet?
You didn't think the fix was in?
Socialists never take a chance on the people having a say...that would just be too democratic for their tastes.
Arugula and Iranian caviar anyone?
The Nasty Socialist Amongst Us...........
There will never be a place in America for socialists, especially in our government....and yet, here we have one running for the highest office in the land.
Watch this video and then start comparing it to all the other Marxist/socialist/commie propaganda tools we have seen Obama and his evil minions use; the children's book, the uber creepy Mao/Stalin style election posters, his army of mindless Obots that would have been called Brownshirts in another country and another time.....and if you don't know, absolutely know, that this man must never ever be elected to the highest office in the land then you need to move to Cuba with him.................
I will be updating this post with a collection of all the creepy and just so damn un-American campaign props and tools Barack Hussein Obama has used....and I do mean used...........

Barack the Socialist......Proof Even A Liberal Could Understand.....
This is a 2001 interview on public radio done with Barack Hussein Obama.
Yes, your tax dollars at work....and just think, they were sitting on this audio just like the L.A. Times is sitting on that video....but on your dime.
If this man gets elected it will be the end of America....
But Ace says it much better than I ever could..... read it here.
Listen to it while you can before Big Bro's thought police remove it and it goes down the memory hole. If your skin isn't crawling after you listen to this then you aren't an American.....at least not one I ever want to associate with.
There is just no spinning this crap into anything good...period.
And as a side note to all of the people that bitched about the patriot act because it *might* hurt them...what do you think about a candidate that has a horde of people that do nothing else but remove material that might be "offensive" to his highness The Messiah of Bullshit from the net and elsewhere?
I find it especially interesting that they even remove things that Barack has said himself...yes, you think about that.....

The “O” Is For Obscene……And Opportunist.
"Progress" is code for anti military anti American works in progress....get it?
On this day…of all days, the anniversary of the mass murder of 241 Marines in Beirut….the democrats, also known as Barack Hussein Obama’s toadies, are making sure that the very people that protect our rights to well, everything, are being disenfranchised at the polling place…..by the democrats, again.
They are throwing out the legitimate votes of our military personnel.
Basically on a technicality….but really it’s because the democrat in charge knows who those military voters are voting for.
VIA Ace....be sure to go to Ace of Spades and read it all.
" Military ballots are being tossed in Fairfax Co, VA because of a “technicality.” Not a lot of them compared to the size of the electorate, but more than a few.
The registrar of voters is a Democrat. He thinks it “stinks,” but the law is the law.
Fairfax general registrar Rokey Suleman said Thursday that he has had to reject some of the ballots because of a Virginia law passed in 2002. That law -- then called Senate Bill 113, sponsored by then state Sen. Bill Bolling – requires that when an overseas citizen wants to request an absentee ballot and cast a vote with the same paperwork, it requires not only a witness signature but also the current address of the witness.
The McCain campaign said there’s not even a space for the witness to list an address. Suleman agreed; he said the federal document was changed in recent years and the space for the witness address was removed. But the Virginia law hasn’t changed.
Democrats insist they’re biased towards access... so will they try to intervene on behalf of these voters?
If we were talking about low income black voters they could sign their ballot with a name like Doodad Pro or Mickey Mouse and not only would their vote count…it would probably count at least twice.
Can this get more sickening?
Where are the Feds anyway?
This is what happens when the Feds don't do their jobs......
And guess what?
This guy's vote never counted.
That's what happens when you allow the democrats to manipulate the voting process.
Illegal votes count several times, military votes don't count at all.

The Most Awkward Thanksgiving In History.......
ZOMBIE has really outdone himself with this .....every voter, especially Jewish voters should read this, and read it all.
A quote from Zombie's piece:
Just because Ayers tries to appear respectable now doesn’t mean that he wasn’t a violent revolutionary in the past. In fact, as the text of Prairie Fire shows, Ayers was one of the most extreme extremists in American political history. And as the links given as the end of this essay prove, Ayers is just as politically radical now as he was back then. He has never renounced the political views he professed in the 1960s and 1970s. The only difference is that now he no longer commits violence to achieve his goals. After his stint as the leader of the Weather Underground, he shifted to a different tactic: to spread his ideology under the aegis of academia. But the goal remains the same: to turn America into a communist nation. Ayers’ contemporary writings contain many of the same ideas (and even the same phrases) found in Prairie Fire, just toned down to make them more palatable in polite society.
I cannot state how important it is to read it all strongly enough,because it definitely clears up the mystery of why Obama has been lying about his close, close connections to William Ayers.
But here's my question; just how frickin' awkward will Thanksgiving be at the Kennedy's this year when they read the dedication page and realize that Obama's BFF, Billy 'the bomber" Ayers, the guy he shared an office with for three years, the guy who launched his political career, the guy who he has been lying about even "knowing", the guy who babysat his kids,was a huge fan of Sirhan Sirhan...the murderer of Robert Kennedy.
This is the dedication page:
Does anyone for a moment think that Obama didn't know about this book?
Have you listened to Bill "legend in his own mind" Ayers?
Even according to the NYT, this guy is such a grandiose, narcissistic fool that it is highly unlikely, if not impossible, that he didn't shoot his mouth off at least several thousand times about that other book he wrote.
Plus, both Obama and Ayers are anti Semites.....common cause, baby, common cause.
Now think about Teddy Kennedy endorsing Obama........could this get creepier?
Obviously Teddy didn't know....but you can bet Obama did.

Obama Supporters Admit They Support Him Because Of Socialism !
And you thought that the McCain camp was making this up?
It gets very interesting at about 1:59....but you want to be sure to watch the whole thing so you don't miss the fat loser union thug that makes a very typical Obama campaign statement towards a woman just asking a question.
Why are the unions behind Obama? Well, now that the unions have successfully run almost every business they have been involved in out of the country with their ridiculous demands and soaring costs....who is going to give them the government cheese they think they are entitled to for sitting on their backsides doing nothing but bitching?
Come on...you already know the answer......Mr. Socialism himself....Barack Hussein Obama.
I know I really don't have to say this because after all it is a bunch of Obama supporters so we know what to expect...but, I'll say it anyway..... language warning.
Many thanks to LGF

Economic Terrorism 6.0
My first thought when the economic crisis began to break was why all of a sudden? Almost every single ingredient had been there for months, if not years, and how convenient that it would suddenly hit "crisis" stage right before the election.
It never occurred to me that Obama's handlers had gauged the reaction...and blinding fear.....of the American people so well that they knew where these soon-to-be voters would run.
Right into the arms of the very person who is behind the entire mess.....Barack Obama.
Perhaps if they read this incredibly well done article in American Thinker they might rethink that scenario.......
Please read this, pass it along to everyone you know and then think about it.
America...you have been played..........
Puppet and master.....

Barack Obama and the Strategy of Manufactured Crisis
America waits with bated breath while Washington struggles to bring the U.S. economy back from the brink of disaster. But many of those same politicians caused the crisis, and if left to their own devices will do so again.
Despite the mass media news blackout, a series of books, talk radio and the blogosphere have managed to expose Barack Obama's connections to his radical mentors -- Weather Underground bombers William Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, Communist Party member Frank Marshall Davis and others. David Horowitz and his Discover the Networks.org have also contributed a wealth of information and have noted Obama's radical connections since the beginning.
Yet, no one to my knowledge has yet connected all the dots between Barack Obama and the Radical Left. When seen together, the influences on Obama's life comprise a who's who of the radical leftist movement, and it becomes painfully apparent that not only is Obama a willing participant in that movement, he has spent most of his adult life deeply immersed in it.
But even this doesn't fully describe the extreme nature of this candidate. He can be tied directly to a malevolent overarching strategy that has motivated many, if not all, of the most destructive radical leftist organizations in the United States since the 1960s.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis
In an earlier post, I noted the liberal record of unmitigated legislative disasters, the latest of which is now being played out in the financial markets before our eyes. Before the 1994 Republican takeover, Democrats had sixty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress - with substantial majorities most of the time. Can a group of smart people, studying issue after issue for years on end, with virtually unlimited resources at their command, not come up with a single policy that works? Why are they chronically incapable?
One of two things must be true. Either the Democrats are unfathomable idiots, who ignorantly pursue ever more destructive policies despite decades of contrary evidence, or they understand the consequences of their actions and relentlessly carry on anyway because they somehow benefit.
I submit to you they understand the consequences. For many it is simply a practical matter of eliciting votes from a targeted constituency at taxpayer expense; we lose a little, they gain a lot, and the politician keeps his job. But for others, the goal is more malevolent - the failure is deliberate. Don't laugh. This method not only has its proponents, it has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It describes their agenda, tactics, and long-term strategy.
The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as:
The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.
Cloward and Piven were inspired by radical organizer [and Hillary Clinton mentor] Saul Alinsky:
"Make the enemy live up to their (sic) own book of rules," Alinsky wrote in his 1989 book Rules for Radicals. When pressed to honor every word of every law and statute, every Judeo-Christian moral tenet, and every implicit promise of the liberal social contract, human agencies inevitably fall short. The system's failure to "live up" to its rule book can then be used to discredit it altogether, and to replace the capitalist "rule book" with a socialist one. (Courtesy Discover the Networks.org)
Newsmax rounds out the picture:
Their strategy to create political, financial, and social chaos that would result in revolution blended Alinsky concepts with their more aggressive efforts at bringing about a change in U.S. government. To achieve their revolutionary change, Cloward and Piven sought to use a cadre of aggressive organizers assisted by friendly news media to force a re-distribution of the nation's wealth.
In their Nation article, Cloward and Piven were specific about the kind of "crisis" they were trying to create:
By crisis, we mean a publicly visible disruption in some institutional sphere. Crisis can occur spontaneously (e.g., riots) or as the intended result of tactics of demonstration and protest which either generate institutional disruption or bring unrecognized disruption to public attention.
No matter where the strategy is implemented, it shares the following features:
1. The offensive organizes previously unorganized groups eligible for government benefits but not currently receiving all they can.
2. The offensive seeks to identify new beneficiaries and/or create new benefits.
3. The overarching aim is always to impose new stresses on target systems, with the ultimate goal of forcing their collapse.
Capitalizing on the racial unrest of the 1960s, Cloward and Piven saw the welfare system as their first target. They enlisted radical black activist George Wiley, who created the National Welfare Reform Organization (NWRO) to implement the strategy. Wiley hired militant foot soldiers to storm welfare offices around the country, violently demanding their "rights." According to a City Journal article by Sol Stern, welfare rolls increased from 4.3 million to 10.8 million by the mid-1970s as a result, and in New York City, where the strategy had been particularly successful, "one person was on the welfare rolls... for every two working in the city's private economy."
According to another City Journal article titled "Compassion Gone Mad":
The movement's impact on New York City was jolting: welfare caseloads, already climbing 12 percent a year in the early sixties, rose by 50 percent during Lindsay's first two years; spending doubled... The city had 150,000 welfare cases in 1960; a decade later it had 1.5 million.
The vast expansion of welfare in New York City that came of the NWRO's Cloward-Piven tactics sent the city into bankruptcy in 1975. Rudy Giuliani cited Cloward and Piven by name as being responsible for "an effort at economic sabotage." He also credited Cloward-Piven with changing the cultural attitude toward welfare from that of a temporary expedient to a lifetime entitlement, an attitude which in-and-of-itself has caused perhaps the greatest damage of all.
Cloward and Piven looked at this strategy as a gold mine of opportunity. Within the newly organized groups, each offensive would find an ample pool of foot soldier recruits willing to advance its radical agenda at little or no pay, and expand its base of reliable voters, legal or otherwise. The radicals' threatening tactics also would accrue an intimidating reputation, providing a wealth of opportunities for extorting monetary and other concessions from the target organizations. In the meantime, successful offensives would create an ever increasing drag on society. As they gleefully observed:
Moreover, this kind of mass influence is cumulative because benefits are continuous. Once eligibility for basic food and rent grants is established, the drain on local resources persists indefinitely.
The next time you drive through one of the many blighted neighborhoods in our cities, or read of the astronomical crime, drug addiction, and out-of-wedlock birth rates, or consider the failed schools, strapped police and fire resources of every major city, remember Cloward and Piven's thrill that "...the drain on local resources persists indefinitely."
ACORN, the new tip of the Cloward-Piven spear
In 1970, one of George Wiley's protégés, Wade Rathke -- like Bill Ayers, a member of the radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) -- was sent to found the Arkansas Community Organizations for Reform Now. While NWRO had made a good start, it alone couldn't accomplish the Cloward-Piven goals. Rathke's group broadened the offensive to include a wide array of low income "rights." Shortly thereafter they changed "Arkansas" to "Association of" and ACORN went nationwide.
Today ACORN is involved in a wide array of activities, including housing, voting rights, illegal immigration and other issues. According to ACORN's website: "ACORN is the nation's largest grassroots community organization of low-and moderate-income people with over 400,000 member families organized into more than 1,200 neighborhood chapters in 110 cities across the country," It is perhaps the largest radical group in the U.S. and has been cited for widespread criminal activity on many fronts.
On voting rights, ACORN and its voter mobilization subsidiary, Project Vote, have been involved nationwide in efforts to grant felons the vote and lobbied heavily for the Motor Voter Act of 1993, a law allowing people to register at motor vehicle departments, schools, libraries and other public places. That law had been sought by Cloward and Piven since the early1980s and they were present, standing behind President Clinton at the signing ceremony.
ACORN's voter rights tactics follow the Cloward-Piven Strategy:
* 1. Register as many Democrat voters as possible, legal or otherwise and help them vote, multiple times if possible.
* 2. Overwhelm the system with fraudulent registrations using multiple entries of the same name, names of deceased, random names from the phone book, even contrived names.
* 3. Make the system difficult to police by lobbying for minimal identification standards.
In this effort, ACORN sets up registration sites all over the country and has been frequently cited for turning in fraudulent registrations, as well as destroying republican applications. In the 2004-2006 election cycles alone, ACORN was accused of widespread voter fraud in 12 states. It may have swung the election for one state governor.
ACORN's website brags: "Since 2004, ACORN has helped more than 1.7 million low- and moderate-income and minority citizens apply to register to vote." Project vote boasts 4 million. I wonder how many of them are dead? For the 2008 cycle, ACORN and Project Vote have pulled out all the stops. Given their furious nationwide effort, it is not inconceivable that this presidential race could be decided by fraudulent votes alone.
Barack Obama ran ACORN's Project Vote in Chicago and his highly successful voter registration drive was credited with getting the disgraced former Senator Carol Moseley-Braun elected. Newsmax reiterates Cloward and Piven's aspirations for ACORN's voter registration efforts:
By advocating massive, no-holds-barred voter registration campaigns, they [Cloward & Piven] sought a Democratic administration in Washington, D.C. that would re-distribute the nation's wealth and lead to a totalitarian socialist state.
As I have written elsewhere, the Radical Left's offensive to promote illegal immigration is "Cloward-Piven on steroids." ACORN is at the forefront of this movement as well, and was a leading organization among a broad coalition of radical groups, including Soros' Open Society Institute, the Service Employees International Union (ACORN founder Wade Rathke also runs a SEIU chapter), and others, that became the Coalition for Comprehensive Immigration Reform. CCIR fortunately failed to gain passage for the 2007 illegal immigrant amnesty bill, but its goals have not changed.
The burden of illegal immigration on our already overstressed welfare system has been widely documented. Some towns in California have even been taken over by illegal immigrant drug cartels. The disease, crime and overcrowding brought by illegal immigrants places a heavy burden on every segment of society and every level of government, threatening to split this country apart at the seams. In the meantime, radical leftist efforts to grant illegal immigrants citizenship guarantee a huge pool of new democrat voters. With little border control, terrorists can also filter in.
Obama aided ACORN as their lead attorney in a successful suit he brought against the Illinois state government to implement the Motor Voter law there. The law had been resisted by Republican Governor Jim Edgars, who feared the law was an opening to widespread vote fraud.
His fears were warranted as the Motor Voter law has since been cited as a major opportunity for vote fraud, especially for illegal immigrants, even terrorists. According to the Wall Street Journal: "After 9/11, the Justice Department found that eight of the 19 hijackers were registered to vote..."
ACORN's dual offensives on voting and illegal immigration are handy complements. Both swell the voter rolls with reliable democrats while assaulting the country ACORN seeks to destroy with overwhelming new problems.
And now we have the mortgage crisis, which has sent a shock wave through Wall Street and panicked world financial markets like no other since the stock market crash of 1929. But this is a problem created in Washington long ago. It originated with the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), signed into law in 1977 by President Jimmy Carter. The CRA was Carter's answer to a grassroots activist movement started in Chicago, and forced banks to make loans to low income, high risk customers. PhD economist and former Texas Senator Phil Gramm has called it: "a vast extortion scheme against the nation's banks."
ACORN aggressively sought to expand loans to low income groups using the CRA as a whip. Economist Stan Leibowitz wrote in the New York Post:
In the 1980s, groups such as the activists at ACORN began pushing charges of "redlining"-claims that banks discriminated against minorities in mortgage lending. In 1989, sympathetic members of Congress got the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act amended to force banks to collect racial data on mortgage applicants; this allowed various studies to be ginned up that seemed to validate the original accusation.
In fact, minority mortgage applications were rejected more frequently than other applications-but the overwhelming reason wasn't racial discrimination, but simply that minorities tend to have weaker finances.
ACORN showed its colors again in 1991, by taking over the House Banking Committee room for two days to protest efforts to scale back the CRA. Obama represented ACORN in the Buycks-Roberson v. Citibank Fed. Sav. Bank, 1994 suit against redlining. Most significant of all, ACORN was the driving force behind a 1995 regulatory revision pushed through by the Clinton Administration that greatly expanded the CRA and laid the groundwork for the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac borne financial crisis we now confront. Barack Obama was the attorney representing ACORN in this effort. With this new authority, ACORN used its subsidiary, ACORN Housing, to promote subprime loans more aggressively.
As a New York Post article describes it:
A 1995 strengthening of the Community Reinvestment Act required banks to find ways to provide mortgages to their poorer communities. It also let community activists intervene at yearly bank reviews, shaking the banks down for large pots of money.
Banks that got poor reviews were punished; some saw their merger plans frustrated; others faced direct legal challenges by the Justice Department.
Flexible lending programs expanded even though they had higher default rates than loans with traditional standards. On the Web, you can still find CRA loans available via ACORN with "100 percent financing . . . no credit scores . . . undocumented income . . . even if you don't report it on your tax returns." Credit counseling is required, of course.
Ironically, an enthusiastic Fannie Mae Foundation report singled out one paragon of nondiscriminatory lending, which worked with community activists and followed "the most flexible underwriting criteria permitted." That lender's $1 billion commitment to low-income loans in 1992 had grown to $80 billion by 1999 and $600 billion by early 2003.
The lender they were speaking of was Countrywide, which specialized in subprime lending and had a working relationship with ACORN.
Investor's Business Daily added:
The revisions also allowed for the first time the securitization of CRA-regulated loans containing subprime mortgages. The changes came as radical "housing rights" groups led by ACORN lobbied for such loans. ACORN at the time was represented by a young public-interest lawyer in Chicago by the name of Barack Obama. (Emphasis, mine.)
Since these loans were to be underwritten by the government sponsored Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the implicit government guarantee of those loans absolved lenders, mortgage bundlers and investors of any concern over the obvious risk. As Bloomberg reported: "It is a classic case of socializing the risk while privatizing the profit."
And if you think Washington policy makers cared about ACORN's negative influence, think again. Before this whole mess came down, a Democrat-sponsored bill on the table would have created an "Affordable Housing Trust Fund," granting ACORN access to approximately $500 million in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac revenues with little or no oversight.
Even now, unbelievably -- on the brink of national disaster -- Democrats have insisted ACORN benefit from bailout negotiations! Senator Lindsay Graham reported last night (9/25/08) in an interview with Greta Van Susteren of On the Record that Democrats want 20 percent of the bailout money to go to ACORN!
This entire fiasco represents perhaps the pinnacle of ACORN's efforts to advance the Cloward-Piven Strategy and is a stark demonstration of the power they wield in Washington.
Enter Barack Obama
In attempting to capture the significance of Barack Obama's Radical Left connections and his relation to the Cloward Piven strategy, I constructed following flow chart. It is by no means complete. There are simply too many radical individuals and organizations to include them all here. But these are perhaps the most significant.
Cloward Piven Strategy
The chart puts Barack Obama at the epicenter of an incestuous stew of American radical leftism. Not only are his connections significant, they practically define who he is. Taken together, they constitute a who's who of the American radical left, and guiding all is the Cloward-Piven strategy.
Conspicuous in their absence are any connections at all with any other group, moderate, or even mildly leftist. They are all radicals, firmly bedded in the anti-American, communist, socialist, radical leftist mesh.
Most people are unaware that Barack Obama received his training in "community organizing" from Saul Alinsky's Industrial Areas Foundation. But he did. In and of itself that marks his heritage and training as that of a radical activist. One really needs go no further. But we have.
Obama objects to being associated with SDS bomber Bill Ayers, claiming he is being smeared with "guilt by association." But they worked together at the Woods Fund. The Wall Street Journal added substantially to our knowledge by describing in great detail Obama's work over five years with SDS bomber Bill Ayers on the board of a non-profit, the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, to push a radical agenda on public school children. As Stanley Kurtz states:
"...the issue here isn't guilt by association; it's guilt by participation. As CAC chairman, Mr. Obama was lending moral and financial support to Mr. Ayers and his radical circle. That is a story even if Mr. Ayers had never planted a single bomb 40 years ago."
Also included in the mix is Theresa Heinz Kerry's favorite charity, the Tides Foundation. A partial list of Tides grants tells you all you need to know: ACLU, ACORN, Center for American Progress, Center for Constitutional Rights (a communist front,) CAIR, Earth Justice, Institute for Policy Studies (KGB spy nest), National Lawyers Guild (oldest communist front in U.S.), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), and practically every other radical group there is. ACORN's Wade Rathke runs a Tides subsidiary, the Tides Center.
Carl Davidson and the New Party
We have heard about Bomber Bill, but we hear little about fellow SDS member Carl Davidson. According to Discover the Networks, Davidson was an early supporter of Barack Obama and a prominent member of Chicago's New Party, a synthesis of CPUSA members, Socialists, ACORN veterans and other radicals. Obama sought and received the New Party's endorsement, and they assisted with his campaign. The New Party also developed a strong relationship with ACORN. As an excellent article on the New Party observes: "Barack Obama knew what he was getting into and remains an ideal New Party candidate."
The chart also suggests the reason for George Soros' fervent support of Obama. The President of his Open Society Institute is Aryeh Neier, founder of the radical Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). As mentioned above, three other former SDS members had extensive contact with Obama: Bill Ayers, Carl Davidson and Wade Rathke. Surely Aryeh Neier would have heard from his former colleagues of the promising new politician. More to the point, Neier is firmly committed to supporting the hugely successful radical organization, ACORN, and would be certain back their favored candidate, Barack Obama.
Obama has spent a large portion of his professional life working for ACORN or its subsidiaries, representing ACORN as a lawyer on some of its most critical issues, and training ACORN leaders. Stanley Kurtz's excellent National Review article, "Inside Obama's Acorn." also describes Obama's ACORN connection in detail. But I can't improve on Obama's own words:
I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career (emphasis added). Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work. - Barack Obama, Speech to ACORN, November 2007 (Courtesy Newsmax.)
In another excellent article on Obama's ACORN connections, Newsmax asks a nagging question:
It would be telling to know if Obama, during his years at Columbia, had occasion to meet Cloward and study the Cloward-Piven Strategy.
I ask you, is it possible ACORN would train Obama to take leadership positions within ACORN without telling him what he was training for? Is it possible ACORN would put Obama in leadership positions without clueing him into what his purpose was?? Is it possible that this most radical of organizations would put someone in charge of training its trainers, without him knowing what it was he was training them for?
As a community activist for ACORN; as a leadership trainer for ACORN; as a lead organizer for ACORN's Project Vote; as an attorney representing ACORN's successful efforts to impose Motor Voter regulations in Illinois; as ACORN's representative in lobbying for the expansion of high risk housing loans through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that led to the current crisis; as a recipient of their assistance in his political campaigns -- both with money and campaign workers; it is doubtful that he was unaware of ACORN's true goals. It is doubtful he was unaware of the Cloward-Piven Strategy.
Fast-forward to 2005 when an obsequious, servile and scraping Daniel Mudd, CEO of Fannie Mae spoke at the Congressional Black Caucus swearing in ceremony for newly-elected Illinois Senator, Barack Obama. Mudd called, the Congressional Black Caucus "our family" and "the conscience of Fannie Mae."
In 2005, Republicans sought to rein in Fannie and Freddie. Senator John McCain was at the forefront of that effort. But it failed due to an intense lobbying effort put forward by Fannie and Freddie.
In his few years as a U.S. senator, Obama has received campaign contributions of $126,349, from Fannie and Freddie, second only to the $165,400 received by Senator Chris Dodd, who has been getting donations from them since 1988. What makes Obama so special?
His closest advisers are a dirty laundry list of individuals at the heart of the financial crisis: former Fannie Mae CEO Jim Johnson; Former Fannie Mae CEO and former Clinton Budget Director Frank Raines; and billionaire failed Superior Bank of Chicago Board Chair Penny Pritzker.
Johnson had to step down as adviser on Obama's V.P. search after this gem came out:
An Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) report from September 2004 found that, during Johnson's tenure as CEO, Fannie Mae had improperly deferred $200 million in expenses. This enabled top executives, including Johnson and his successor, Franklin Raines, to receive substantial bonuses in 1998. A 2006 OFHEO report found that Fannie Mae had substantially under-reported Johnson's compensation. Originally reported as $6-7 million, Johnson actually received approximately $21 million.
Obama denies ties to Raines but the Washington Post calls him a member of "Obama's political circle." Raines and Johnson were fined $3 million by the Office of Federal Housing Oversight for their manipulation of Fannie books. The fine is small change however, compared to the $50 million Raines was able to obtain in improper bonuses as a result of juggling the books.
Most significantly, Penny Pritzker, the current Finance Chairperson of Obama's presidential campaign helped develop the complicated investment bundling of subprime securities at the heart of the meltdown. She did so in her position as shareholder and board chair of Superior Bank. The Bank failed in 2001, one of the largest in recent history, wiping out $50 million in uninsured life savings of approximately 1,400 customers. She was named in a RICO class action law suit but doesn't seem to have come out of it too badly.
As a young attorney in the 1990s, Barack Obama represented ACORN in Washington in their successful efforts to expand Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) authority. In addition to making it easier for ACORN groups to force banks into making risky loans, this also paved the way for banks like Superior to package mortgages as investments, and for the Government Sponsored Enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to underwrite them. These changes created the conditions that ultimately lead to the current financial crisis.
Did they not know this would occur? Were these smart people, led by a Harvard graduate, unaware of the Econ 101 concept of moral hazard that would result from the government making implicit guarantees to underwrite private sector financial risk? They should have known that freeing the high-risk mortgage market of risk, calamity was sure to ensue. I think they did.
Barack Obama, the Cloward-Piven candidate, no matter how he describes himself, has been a radical activist for most of his political career. That activism has been in support of organizations and initiatives that at their heart seek to tear the pillars of this nation asunder in order to replace them with their demented socialist vision. Their influence has spread so far and so wide that despite their blatant culpability in the current financial crisis, they are able to manipulate Capital Hill politicians to cut them into $140 billion of the bailout pie!
God grant those few responsible yet remaining in Washington, DC the strength to prevent this massive fraud from occurring. God grant them the courage to stand up in the face of this Marxist tidal wave.

Socialism: A progressive political system that takes the power away from wealth creators and gives it to wealth distributors. Wealth distributors are typically a class of highly trained government bureaucrats who are being watched by a class of political commissars, who, in turn, are being watched by a class of secret police, all of whom are banded together by shared progressive morals. Because progressive morals are relative by definition, a certain measure of absolute propaganda is necessary to encourage collectivism and discourage counter revolution. Since such propaganda is delivered through mass media, arts, and schools, a degree of ideological monopoly, uniformity, and censorship is also required in those fields. The resulting mass enthusiasm creates a vibrant state-subsidized culture, leading to great economic successes and technological breakthroughs, e.g., North Korea.
The Stinging Truth About Barack Obama...On Video
October 13, 2008
Isn't This Convenient..In A Very Creepy Way
From Gateway Pundit:
Unreal... New 8th Grade English Textbooks Now Contain 15 Page Section on Obama!
Maybe this was part of the Bill Ayers education plan?
8th grade students in Racine, Wisconsin are now using textbooks that contain a 15 page section on Barack Obama.
Note: No Hillary, No McCain, No Palin, No Bush... Just Obama!
This is beyond freaky.
Real Debate Wisconsin reported:
My 8th grade son is in an advanced English class at a public middle school here in Racine, Wisconsin. I just found out that my son's new (copyright 2008) Wisconsin - McDougal Littell Literature book has 15 pages covering Barack Obama.
I was shocked - No John McCain, no Hillary Clinton, no George Bush - Just Barack Obama. I'm wondering how it is that Obama's story gets put into an 8th grade literature book? It would be one thing, if it was just the tidbit about his boyhood days, but 15 pages, and they talk about his "Life of Service". Honestly, what has Obama really done to be included in this book? Not only that, but on page 847 there is a photo of Obama at the 2004 Democratic Convention with at least 8 Obama signs in the background! Front & center is an www.obama2004.com sign.
Now I understand that many teachers are liberals, but does the school have the right to shove Obama down our kid's throats? All the kids grouped together and read the story. After that, they discussed it... I guess it appears that Obama is planning ahead. If he doesn't get his coveted Presidency, Obama is going to make sure, that the younger generations know all about him, and his "life of service".
If you would like to see the 15 page story on Obama, it appears that you can order this book online. There is a note in the book that says, For more on Barack Obama, visit the Literature Center at www.ClassZone.com The book is: Wisconsin - 8th grade - McDougal Littell Literature - copyright 2008. The Obama story starts on page 830. I hope you will take the time to look at this book. I'm really angry about this - In fact, I would love to rip the pages right out of this book.
Be sure to visit Real Debate Wisconsin for the rest of the story....it's appalling.

Barack Hussein Obama ...Third World Dictator Wanna Be...
If you read nothing else today, you must read this great commentary from The Washington Times [link fixed]
Have we , in America, lost our minds?
Has the federal government been so PC-ed to death [or infiltrated by lefty social engineers....same diff BTW] that they cannot enforce our laws anymore?
Logan act anyone? RICO anyone?
Read the whole commentary and then ask yourself these questions:
Is this who I want running America? Are his views in line with mine and most Americans? Do I even remotely think I can trust this man? Do I even know who the hell he really is?
The same man that snottily claimed that anyone who didn't realize his greatness was some backward bible clinging, gun clutching hillbilly who wasn't good enough to take tea with his highness the princess Obama.
And I'm not talking about Michelle either.
I am talking about the the nasty little piece of work politician that sneers down his nose at real Americans while being either incapable or unwilling to prove that he is also an American by birth.....
HYMAN: Obama's Kenya ghosts Mark Hyman Sunday, October 12, 2008 COMMENTARY:
About 50 parishioners were locked into the Assemblies of God church before it was set ablaze. They were mostly women and children. Those who tried to flee were hacked to death by machete-wielding members of a mob numbering 2,000.
The 2008 New Year Day atrocity in the Kenyan village Eldoret, about 185 miles northwest of Nairobi, had all the markings of the Rwanda genocide of a decade earlier.
By mid-February 2008, more than 1,500 Kenyans were killed. Many were slain by machete-armed attackers. More than 500,000 were displaced by the religious strife. Villages lay in ruin. Many of the atrocities were perpetrated by Muslims against Christians.
The violence was led by supporters of Raila Odinga, the opposition leader who lost the Dec. 27, 2007, presidential election by more than 230,000 votes. Odinga supporters began the genocide hours after the final election results were announced Dec. 30. Mr. Odinga was a member of Parliament representing an area in western Kenya, heavily populated by the Luo tribe, and the birthplace of Barack Obama's father.
Mr. Odinga had the backing of Kenya's Muslim community heading into the election. For months he denied any ties to Muslim leaders, but fell silent when Sheik Abdullahi Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum, appeared on Kenya television displaying a memorandum of understanding signed on Aug. 29, 2007, by Mr. Odinga and the Muslim leader. Mr. Odinga then denied his denials.
The details of the MOU were shocking. In return for Muslim backing, Mr. Odinga promised to impose a number of measures favored by Muslims if he were elected president. Among these were recognition of "Islam as the only true religion," Islamic leaders would have an "oversight role to monitor activities of ALL other religions [emphasis in original]," installation of Shariah courts in every jurisdiction, a ban on Christian preaching, replacement of the police commissioner who "allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists," adoption of a women's dress code, and bans on alcohol and pork.
This was not Mr. Odinga's first brush with notoriety. Like his father, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, the main opposition leader in the 1960s and 1970s, Raila Odinga is a Marxist He graduated from East Germany's Magdeburg University in 1970 on a scholarship provided by the East German government. He named his oldest son after Fidel Castro.
Raila Odinga was implicated in the bloody coup attempt in 1982 against then-President Daniel Arap Moi, a close ally of the United States. Kenya has been one of the most stable democracies in Africa since the 1960s. The ethnic cleansing earlier this year was the worst violence in Kenya since that 1982 coup attempt.
Mr. Odinga spent eight years in prison. At the time, he denied guilt but later detailed he was a coup leader in his 2006 biography. Statue of limitations precluded further prosecution when the biography appeared.
Initially, Mr. Odinga was not the favored opposition candidate to stand in the 2007 election against President Mwai Kibaki, who was seeking his second term. However, he received a tremendous boost when Sen. Barack Obama arrived in Kenya in August 2006 to campaign on his behalf. Mr. Obama denies that supporting Mr. Odinga was the intention of his trip, but his actions and local media reports tell otherwise.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama were nearly inseparable throughout Mr. Obama's six-day stay. The two traveled together throughout Kenya and Mr. Obama spoke on behalf of Mr. Odinga at numerous rallies. In contrast, Mr. Obama had only criticism for Kibaki. He lashed out against the Kenyan government shortly after meeting with the president on Aug. 25. "The [Kenyan] people have to suffer over corruption perpetrated by government officials," Mr. Obama announced.
"Kenyans are now yearning for change," he declared. The intent of Mr. Obama's remarks and actions was transparent to Kenyans - he was firmly behind Mr. Odinga.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama had met several times before the 2006 trip. Reports indicate Mr. Odinga visited Mr. Obama during trips to the U.S. in 2004, 2005 and 2006. Mr. Obama sent his foreign policy adviser Mark Lippert to Kenya in early 2006 to coordinate his summer visit. Mr. Obama's August trip coincided with strategizing by Orange Democratic Movement leaders to defeat Mr. Kibaki in the upcoming elections. Mr. Odinga represented the ODM ticket in the presidential race.
Mr. Odinga and Mr. Obama's father were both from the Luo community, the second-largest tribe in Kenya, but their ties run much deeper. Mr. Odinga told a stunned BBC Radio interviewer the reason why he and Mr. Obama were staying in near daily telephone contact was because they were cousins. In a Jan. 8, 2008, interview, Mr. Odinga said Mr. Obama had called him twice the day before while campaigning in the New Hampshire primary before adding, "Barack Obama's father is my maternal uncle."
President Kibaki requested a meeting of all opposition leaders in early January in an effort to quell the violence. All agreed to attend except Mr. Odinga. A month later, Mr. Kibaki offered Mr. Odinga the role of prime minister, the de facto No. 2 in the Kenyan government, in return for an end to the attacks. Mr. Odinga was sworn in on April 17, 2008.
Mr. Obama's judgment is seriously called into question when he backs an official with troubling ties to Muslim extremists and whose supporters practice ethnic cleansing and genocide. It was Islamic extremists in Kenya who bombed the U.S. Embassy in 1998, killing more than 200 and injuring thousands. None of this has dissuaded Mr. Obama from maintaining disturbing loyalties.

The Reality Of The Financial Crisis...In Cartoon Form
If there ever was a political cartoon that spelled out the real situation...this is it.
Google George Soros and find out how he "broke" the British banking system. What? You think he became a billionaire by working?
The people that now own the democrat party are George Soros and Billy 'the bomber" Ayers....so we have a financial terrorist and a domestic terrorist and their weak mindless puppet Barack Obama....who just wants power making that power grab with the help of "people" like Barney Frank and all the other incredibly dishonest and self serving congressmen and senators from the new democratic party.
With the MSM not just looking the other way but carrying their
water bullshit for them it looks as if they are well on their way to success.
They want to own America......and unless the American people wake up and see what is actually happening on the big stage and not just in their pocketbooks...they will succeed.
Yes, America you were set up.....and not by the republicans.
So now the democrats .....who orchestrated this whole financial fiasco....are counting, counting, on the fact that you will be so frightened, so traumatized by fear that you will run lemming-fashion right over the cliff into their arms.
Barack Hussein Obama is no American...I don' t care where he was born..........and he is no savior.
He will destroy America and that is something we will never recover from.
The market goes up and down, it is the way of the market, but if we hand this great country over to a dangerous socialist like Obama....America will cease to exist.

Obama's BFF.......Billy 'the bomber" Ayers
Well, I couldn't believe my own eyes...The New York Times finally coming out with some truth for a change ?
Nope...it's an old story, you know back-in-the-day before they were covering up for Barack Hussein Obama full time......
Read it all HERE.
My favorite quotes.....
" The Weathermen's other great theme was blackness. They fetishized it. Not just any blackness, mind you, but poor, angry blackness that tended toward violence and criminality.
This theme plays big as Ayers joins S.D.S. in the 1960's and sets up house in a Cleveland ghetto.There young radicals sing Negro spirituals and eat chitterlings with the natives, whose intelligence and industry they find surprising. Ayers has the obligatory 60's erotic encounter with a black woman. By the end of his stay in Cleveland, he is mesmerized by the incendiary violence of the 1966 race riots: ''By that time,'' he writes, ''I . . . thought I was black.''
"In Ayers's hands, a career in terrorism becomes a harmless episode out of a John le Carré novel, in which our hero lives on the run, steals explosives, sets off explosions using ''tradecraft,'' as the flap copy puts it -- as if the Weathermen were characters in ''Smiley's People.'' But the Weathermen game was never really a game. Nor was it ever noble, or even moral. In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks that killed thousands of people in Lower Manhattan and the Pentagon, readers will find this playacting with violence very difficult to forgive."
Wow Barry...your judgement in picking those friends is just stellar. I'll bet Ayers is just amazed by your "intelligence and industry", huh?
So you will even associate with a race baiting spoiled trust fund baby with a penchant for violence if it gets you what you want.
Yup....no morals to see here folks...just move along..............

Alan Colmes "LiberaLand".....no reality here........
Truly, you do have to wonder about FOX news at times. Why on earth, for instance, would they hire a talentless shill like Alan Colmes in the first place...and then allow him to run a blog where he manufactures "news"?
Ah well, some things are forever mysteries.
But, courtesy of NoTalent Colmes' little blog LiberaLand we get an insight into where the Obama camp is going to scurry next in trying to find cover for the Obama-Ayers connection.
A classic comment from one of Alan's rocket scientists:
Bradley, That is the point about Ayers….they never say what he bombed…because he never did bomb anything. The weathermen plotted to bomb things, and even set a few dummies, but the only bombs that were news worthy in those days were ROTC portable buildings that got bombed…and nobody took the rap for them. The pentagon never was bombed. Nixon was the president and I believe Hoover was still around…now, if you ever learned about abuse of power or contempt for the constitution, those two were pros. They managed the news like the Bush administation only wish they could. It all was way overblown. How do I know…well, that’s a story for another day he he he.

A Must Read....And From Canada Too......
From THE CANADA FREE PRESS:
ACORN: The Poisonous NUT That Ended Democracy in America
By Cristi Adkins Saturday, October 4, 2008
Within its shell, ACORN contains all the makings of an intriguing government political conspiracy movie: drama, injustice, organized crime, election fraud, intimidation, violence, money, lies, extortion and a presidential candidate.
If you are a patriotic, middle class American who spends most of your time working for your family and enjoying your FREEDOM, you have probably not been bothered by the sounds of an ACORN dropping before now.
But, while you were sleeping peacefully at night, the roots of Socialism have broadened its reach, without determent right into the foundation of the White House.
Allow me to enlighten you to the ways of a radical community action group that could impact your way of life forever.
ACORN is an acronym that stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Its mere definition contains hints of Socialism as it claims to be a group advocating for low- and moderate-income families that addresses housing, schools, neighborhood safety, health care, job conditions, and other social issues.
Beneath that surface lie violence, intimidation, threats, race baiting and direct physical attacks on property, people and the legal establishment.
Without going into the myriad details, many ACORN policy proposals are widely considered to be in line with the far left wing of the Democratic Party.
If you are asking yourself what could possibly be so ‘bad’ with a group that in theory advocates for low income families, then you’ve just given yourself the reason this group has been allowed to thrive in America with little scrutiny and under the radar of main street observation until now.
In truth, ACORN is the most virulent, organized crime group in this decade...and it is funded by YOU.
Put simply, ACORN is ripping off the taxpayer through Congressional hand outs. In fact, ACORN was recently due to receive nearly $700 million* of the $700 billion dollar bailout bill until Republicans in the Senate redlined it.
Allow that to sink in for a moment: $700 million from the US for an organized crime group.
Yes, ACORN has been receiving Obama campaign funding, but what’s worse is that ACORN leaders are actively extorting money from banks, mortgage brokers and Congress. To add insult to injury, ACORN is costing Americans millions to investigate all of its criminal activities across America.
And then there’s the end of the democratic process through valid elections. Yes, ACORN is behind much of the rampant voter fraud. ACORN has been involved with fraudulent voter registrations for years. In fact, Missouri has 8 ACORN guilty pleas on record (for 2006 violations of federal voting laws) just this year. Many other states are investigating many hundreds of cases of voter fraud in their jurisdiction. We have compelling evidence that ACORN has been involved in fraudulent voter registration since early in the 2007 launch of the Obama campaign.
But we don’t stop at faulty funding and voter fraud. Obama’s community organizational skills are synonymous with totalitarian tactics as its leaders use violence, intimidation, threats, racial baiting and direct physical attacks on property, persons and the legal establishment. When you shed the shell, there is just no good to the group known as ACORN. It is corrupt and without any upside.
With a group like ACORN running rampant in government and shaking hands in Washington, why not legitimize the Bloods and The Crypts? They too are street gangs but they just happen to push drugs instead of bogus registrations drives and sub-prime mortgage deals.
Uncle Sam should be putting ACORN at the top of its list as internal terrorist groups, yet the red, white and blue sense of justice seems to be crumbling. Many numbed citizens just roll their eyes at groups like ACORN simply because America has unfortunately become deadened to the idea that politicians have ulterior motives, nameless agenda’s and behave unscrupulously at times.
However, the rest of this American story is without filtering or fear.
The disturbing reason more ACORN activities go un-prosecuted is because the FEC as well as the FBI have refused to open investigations out of fear of rocking the Obama campaign.
The MOST disturbing fact you need to know about ACORN is that its organizers have terrorized the Federal justice and law enforcement system into NON-action.
How can one group get away with so much? Because ACORN has many Democratic backers in Congress who work tirelessly for its perpetuation and the head ACORN nut is Senator Obama. In fact, Senator Obama is so entwined in ACORN it has become a career and campaign double helix in his DNA.
If you’re asking yourself what Obama has to do with ACORN, consider this:
Obama has served ACORN as its attorney, has been its direct action trainer, its mentor, its contractor, and its PRIMARY illegal campaign funder. ACORN is part of the ‘Community Organizing’ experience his evil empire would like to bring into the White House.
American men and American women should be recognizing that mother freedom is on the brink of extinction with one single NUT trampling all over liberty.
Who will be left sleeping peacefully at night as the ACORN marks the beginning of Socialism in America brought to you courtesy of Barack Obama? With ACORN intact or worse, empowered in the White House, American Democracy will be a legend long gone. Socialism and criminality will be the rule.

FOX Sees Stars?
I have always been interested in advertising.....and the images that are used to promote or negatively impact products. It doesn't matter what that product is...you are selling it to the same group.
So it doesn't matter if it is a car or a politician does it?
And the sneakiest way of influencing people, and one of the most effective by the way, is by using subliminal messages. They work ....they really do.
So, is that the case here...or is some joker in graphics just messing around?
Either way...you would think FOX would have noticed this by now and corrected it.
But they haven't. And I have been watching this for quite awhile.
Is it subtle? Yes, it is, but it still manages to get across a very negative image.
Call me a nitpicker...but I don't believe in coincidences at all.
And having an upside down star has a very negative context for many people ........and funny, FOX manages to get the stars right side up everywhere else.......especially on the donkey that represents the Dems.
Note the stars on the GOP image versus the Dems......yes, that's subtle alright.
And Rupert Murdoch thinks Obama is a rock star.

Barack Obama……The Big Lacuna…..
As more and more information comes out about Mr. NoPast ,Barack Obama, it seems to be having a chilling effect on the electorate. Don’t bother reading the polls…you might as well be reading tea leaves strewn about by a blind gypsy.
Do what I did…start talking to people. Remember that concept? You actually asked your friends and neighbors what they thought?
Because Barack certainly doesn’t want you to.
After all, the worst case scenario for a political bully like Obama is for citizens to start comparing notes.
And I have been not only surprised, but heartened, to find out that most people aren’t nearly as stupid as the Obama camp and Mr. Astro Turf David Axelrod want you to think.
For instance it has escaped no one that there is a racist running for the white house …..and it isn’t John McCain.
People are tired, and I mean really, really tired of feeling as if they have to be ashamed of being conservative, financially solvent, and white. You are now guilty by the color of your skin. It has not escaped anyone I have talked to that they are about to be pilloried for something that their ancestors may or may not have done….simply because of the color of their skin. If this is post racial I would really like to see Obama explain how.
And all this brought to us all by the same phony that says his recent and very personal associations with domestic terrorists, Muslim extremists, and outright racists do not count. Yup…we aren’t allowed to look closely at Barack’s friends and allies in the present tense because that would make us racists….
Citizens are being told, and not just by any run-of-the-mill race hustler like Jesse Jackson, but by the person who wants to be their Commander In Chief that being a white person makes you the bad guy, and the only way to redeem yourself is by voting for him, natch.
And he has the friends and wife to prove that he really does feel that way too.
It’s a rare politician that actually tells the truth, actually walks the walk and sadly in this case it’s the wrong “truth” and the wrong walk….and definitely the wrong politician………
And BTW "Barry" the PUMAS are alive and well and aren't buying your BS either.....

A Picture Says It All...............
From DANEgerus...............be sure to surf over and read it all...
This came via e-mail
Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them.
Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits. WHY do we have deficits?
Have you ever wondered why, 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 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.
Read the rest at DANEgerus
