    Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac The Wall Street Journal also had this to say about ACORN "Operating in at least 38 states (as well as Canada and Mexico), Acorn pushes a highly partisan agenda, and its organizers are best understood as shock troops for the AFL-CIO and even the Democratic Party. As part of the Fannie Mae reform bill, House Democrats pushed an "affordable housing trust fund" designed to use Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac profits to subsidize Acorn, among other groups. A version of this trust fund actually passed the Republican House and will surely be on the agenda...

    There’s much more to the story of Obama’s amended campaign finance reports than what Obama and the Obamedia will tell you. I will fill you in on what’s missing in a moment. What we have here, essentially, is Obama using a non-profit group called Citizens Services Inc. as a front to funnel payments to ACORN for campaign advance work.

    "I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. 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 The excuse parroted by most newsmedia for failing to give Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., a full vetting, such as they are doing with Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, is that “after 20 months of campaigning and debate,” all is known about the senator. Wrong! For instance, how many voters know...

    Despite having authored two autobiographies, Barack Obama has never written about his most important executive experience. From 1995 to 1999, he led an education foundation called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC), and remained on the board until 2001. The group poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists. ... In works like "City Kids, City Teachers" and "Teaching the Personal and the Political," Mr. Ayers wrote that teachers should be community organizers dedicated to provoking resistance to American racism and oppression. His preferred alternative? "I'm a radical, Leftist, small 'c' communist," Mr. Ayers...

    During elections, you have polls that are published. It seems simple. If you were to ask the voter why polls are published, you would probably get a variety of answers from; it is a snapshot of how voters feel, to the media is trying to influence an election. Arguably there is a perception of truth in polls that are published for the purpose of gauging voter's attitudes. The question should be asked, how accurate are the polls or more importantly how accurate are the polls to the reality of the dynamics of the political landscape? Because when it comes time...

    The McCain campaign claims that voter fraud could wreak havoc during the upcoming November elections. Specifically, Republicans are accusing the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also known as ACORN', of intentionally clogging the system with fraudulent registrations. Former Missouri Senator Jack Danforth is working with the McCain campaign to identify potential problem areas. "We are concerned that ACORN has been connected with Senator Obama, that he has ties to it," claims Danforth. "He directed something called 'Project Vote', he taught classes for future leaders that are identified by ACORN." ACORN was investigated in 2006 for submitting roughly 1500...

    For some reason ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizers for Reform, and the Obama connection does not resonate with most voters. Mention, "the chickens have come home to roost" and the immediate reaction is Rev. Wright, or mention, "bitter voters clinging to their guns and religion" and Pennsylvania immediately pops up. Now, mention Obama and ACORN and the sound you hear is {{crickets}} and the look received is blank stares. Too many of us (myself included) have been too glib about Obama and his experience as a community organizer. One should consider that this is stealth experience that could...

    Local elections officials are looking into potential election fraud and some of the information is pointing to a Democratic-leaning voter's group. ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations For Reform Now, has been registering thousands of new voters for this year's election, but in Seminole County, some voter applications are being withheld until it's proven they're legitimate. Election fraud is a felony, but first it has to be proven and someone has to be charged. So far, elections officials said they are just beginning to gather clues in this case. Seminole County's elections supervisor is holding up dozens of voter registration...

    TALLAHASSEE -- Two suspicious Seminole County voter registration cards became a flash point Wednesday in the Republican effort to suggest the community group ACORN is committing fraud in its historic Florida get-out-the vote efforts. An ACORN spokesman said the group spotted what appeared to be forged registration cards weeks ago and fired a worker over them. Seminole's election chief, Mike Ertel, said he was still "tremendously concerned," but stopped well short of calling the incident "fraud." The Republican National Committee, though, levelled the accusation and blasted the housing and wage advocacy group in a nationwide conference call with reporters, saying...

    COLLIER COUNTY: Voter registration fraud has been detected in one Florida county and now Republicans are pointing their finger at one organization designed to get minorities to vote. The accusations are against the "Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now," or ACORN. The Republican National Committee accuses ACORN of creating fraudulent voter registration cards in an effort to benefit democrats. ACORN admits that they had a case of voter fraud happen this week in Seminole County, but say they have since fired that employee and the faulty registration has been thrown out. But this has caused the RNC to question...

    Regulators knew at least 11 years ago that subprime mortgages could sink financial firms, but didn’t back up their warnings with enough action to prevent today’s crisis, the Herald has found. “The risks associated with subprime lending and investing are considerable and can have serious ramifications,” former Massachusetts Banking Commissioner Thomas Curry wrote to all state-chartered lenders and loan brokers in 1997. “(We) expect institutions (that) engage in subprime activities do so in a manner that is prudent.”

    Ohio Democrats open the door to massive voter fraud. Ever since Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner was elected following the near-Democratic sweep of statewide offices in November 2006, she has worked steadily to give her party the edge it needs to win the White House in 2008. Knowing that no Republican has ever won the presidency without Ohio, and that the Buckeye State gave George W. Bush his electoral margin of victory in 2004, Brunner has turned a blind eye to massive voter fraud throughout the state by Democratic party-aligned groups like ACORN. She is also flagrantly violating Ohio...

    This is disturbing on so many levels. KMOV TV in Missouri is reporting (video link here) that Senator Barack Obama's presidential campaign has signed up law enforcement officials "to target anyone who lies or runs a misleading TV ad during the presidential campaign." According to a summary on National Review Online by Jim Geraghty, prosecutors and sheriffs in the state are joining "the Barack Obama Truth Squad." Mentioned in the report are Jennifer Joyce, a St. Louis Circuit Attorney, and Bob McCullough, prosecutor for St. Louis County.

    Democrats want to use profits from the bailout as a slush fund for liberal activist groups, even those involved in vote fraud to help elect Barack Obama. Prior financial bailouts, or "rescues," such as those involving savings and loan failures, and Chrysler, have over time actually made money for the government. It may be the case here as well, as assets bought by the government at bargain prices return to marketable values and are auctioned off. One of the sticking points in resolving the crisis was a poison pill in the Dodd/Paulson compromise that would move 20% of profits from...

    America waits with baited 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...

    TALLAHASSEE (Bay News 9) -- A national advocacy group is facing accusations of election fraud, and as Florida is one of several states that could go either way on Nov. 4, elections officials are concerned. Over the past four years, ACORN has registered more than 380,000 new voters in Florida, but critics are accusing the organization of election fraud, saying they believe many of those new voters have no idea they've been registered. Officials in Orange and Seminole counties have questions about voter registration cards submitted by ACORN. The Seminole County Supervisor of Elections agrees that at least a couple...
