  1. Inside ACORN’S Political Plans: Ensuring a Democrat Majority
    Nov. 20, 2009 by Anita MonCrief Snips

    According to a report from Ohio today, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has asked the ACORN-tainted Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, to investigation ACORN’s voter registration work in the state.

    An illuminating fact not mentioned in either article is that ACORN prepared political plans for several key battleground states in 2006 and again during the 2007-08 election cycle. As evidenced by the draft plans developed in the Spring of 2006 by the Strategic Writing and Research Department (SWORD) of ACORN Political Operations, these plans were aimed at electing “progressives” and in some cases broke down the Congressional districts by race for maximum targeting. SWORD, which was staffed by Project Vote employees, including myself, worked with ACORN head organizers in FL, MD, MI, MN, OH, PA, and RI to create local documents for the ACORN field staff to implement and present to funders and/or various partner organizations.

    ACORN used Project Vote staff and computers to create the PowerPoint “Campaign for a New Congress.”

    Using the final political plan, ACORN canvassed voters and mailed pieces through its affiliate Communities Voting Together.

    Communities Voting Together has the same address as the Project Vote office in DC and its address on the screen shot above is the same Elysian Fields address where hundreds of other ACORN entities “reside.

  2. The LA Story, Part IV: Program for Torture Victims
    by James O’Keefe

    Lavelle Stewart, of ACORN in South Central Los Angeles, tells us she thinks we have to hook up with “someone who’s on that international sex business level,” that “14 and 15 year olds been traveling overseas for years,” that she can do independent research for us, and that she has had meetings with Porn magnate Larry Flynt. As for laundering the sex money into …

  3. Breitbart to Holder – Investigate ACORN or tapes will be released prior to 2010 Election. His threat to Holder was stated on Hannity. After the release of 7 tapes, Attorney General Holder has not initiated an investigation into ACORN!
    Why wait? Do it now, we want all of the information. Information isn’t just about ACORN..then what? Keep those tapes safe Breitbart!

    Hannity: Are you saying, Andrew, that there are more tapes?
    Breitbart: Oh my goodness there are! Not only are there more tapes, it’s not just ACORN. And this message is to Attorney General Holder: I want you to know that we have more tapes, it’s not just ACORN, and we’re going to hold out until the next election cycle, or else if you want to do a clean investigation, we will give you the rest of what we have, we will comply with you, we will give you the documentation we have from countless ACORN whistleblowers who want to come forward, but are fearful of this organization and the retribution that they fear that this is a dangerous organization. So if you get into an investigation, we will give you the tapes; if you don’t, we will revisit these tapes come election time.

    ACORN dumps documents; Breitbart has them and will release
    Clarice Feldman

    Following the release by Breitbart’s Big Government website of a video showing employees at ACORN’s San Diego County office offering to assist in the transportation and exploitation of underage prostitutes from abroad, the Attorney General of California announced an investigation into ACORN’s operations. Nights before the visit, ACORN dumped thousands of documents in a dumpster. Breitbart obtained them, says they are shocking evidence of ACORN’s illegality and promises to release them bit by bit over time:
    Documents shared with include information exposing not only the inner workings of ACORN in California, but also personal, sensitive information belonging to employees, members and clients of ACORN. ACORN and its few remaining defenders insist that the “good” ACORN provides outweighs the transgressions exposed in the recent undercover video sting. But, ACORN’s massive dumping of these documents and the cavalier manner in which it betrayed the trust of its supporters betrays that talking point. (Unlike ACORN, we have redacted sensitive and personal information.)

    ACORN’s political agenda is also exposed, with thousands upon thousands of documents revealing the depth of the political machine that is ACORN, and its disturbing ties to not only public employee labor unions but some of the most radical leftist organizations.

    The laws governing how sensitive, personal information such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, immigration records, tax returns, etc. must be treated are very stringent, and thus it seems as if ACORN may have committed serious violations in that department alone, with thousands upon thousands of potential plaintiffs.

  5. ACORN Scandal, Part 2: The Evidentiary Phase
    by Andrew Breitbart Snips Listen to the Audio for the full impact.

    …extraordinary document dump at the San Diego office that was one of the offices O’Keefe and Giles exposed, causing the firing of a single employee.

    Last night, on KFI 640 AM, the largest radio station in the country, he announced “the existence of 20,000 deeply sensitive and highly political documents discovered in the dumpster behind ACORN in San Diego on October 9, nine days after ACORN was announced to be under state investigation.”

    Acorn dumped fresh food stamps applications. Breitbart warned, if you live in LA, Fresno or in Southern CA there is the potential that your information is in this dumpster if you were involved with ACORN in ANY way. Personal information of people that had gone to Acorn was in the dumpster: SS #, Driver’s License #, Tax returns, immigration records, etc. ACORN jeopardized these people going for help in San Diego
    ACORN has an outreach program to help people: banks modifications, applications with names, addresses, defaulting mortgages. National banks involved.

    Law enforcement officials from different agencies have gone to see this evidence. AG Jerry Brown’s office has not gone.

    Some might call that “obstruction of justice.” or Destroying evidence. !

    Listen to the entire interview with the private investigator who filled his Suburban with the documents It …shows the proper authorities that ACORN is making a mockery of this country’s laws and judicial process.

    There are reasons ACORN dumped these documents before the scheduled visit by Brown’s office. The question millions want to know, now that ACORN has again brazenly mocked our nation’s laws: Will Holder and Brown do their jobs?

  6. ACORN OKLAHOMA Document Dump: The Oklahoma Power Plan
    Publius Snips

    ACORN’s San Diego office isn’t the only place its been careless with sensitive documents. Late last year, ACORN abandoned an office in Oklahoma. In its haste to vacate the office–and skip out on the landlord’s claim of back-rent–ACORN abandoned piles of documents, as well as a computer. Below is a copy of ACORN’s “Oklahoma Power Plan,” a long-term political plan to reshape politics in the Sooner State.

    The “Power Plan” is a very interesting document. First, it provides another example for how ACORN’s political operation thinks strategically. The plan is focused on impacting state legislative races to create momentum and a power base to affect political races next year.

    The second interesting feature of the document is how overtly partisan it is. At the beginning of the document, ACORN makes clear its goal is to put the Democrats in charge of the state Legislature

    Read their action plan.

  7. Day-by- day the morally, ethically, corrupt ACORN is exposed. They determine who has the money in the community and then target them through activism. A copy of their “training” manual has them start small with speed bumps, vacant lots, until they get some experience under their belts. Praise to all of those who are dumpster diving and otherwise getting information about how they operated. May the exposure lead to all those in our government…right on up to the top.

    Acorn Document Dump: ‘This Gives You a Private Sector Target
    by Publius 11-24

    As part of its strategy to build membership from the ground up, ACORN often first focuses on very local, neighborhood issues.

    The manual provides a bit of background on the issue, some suggested actions and, helpfully, identifies “targets” for these actions

    “To add a smart growth twist to this, we could go after a big sprawl developer with deep pockets and demand some development in our neighborhoods as payback. The developers will argue they need subsidies to make it all work out affordably, which may be true. Call AHC…(emphasis added)”

    Again, this is an ACORN manual suggesting what is very close to a “shakedown” of private businesses. We’re stunned that the word “payback” is actually used in this document.

  8. Bridgette: I read in today’s paper that ACORN is trying to get those dumpster documents back. I bet they are.

    I believe that legally, once you trash something, it’s okay for someone else to take it. It’s not yours anymore. That’s why the last-legs media are able to dumpster dive in Sarah Palin’s trash.

    I love that people like Breitbart and others are using the methods of the radical left against them. Glenn Beck’s becoming a “community organizer”, as is Sarah Palin.

    Someone on FOX News (Horowitz?) suggested that elderly women need to go to mammography centers and stage die-ins to publicize the coming rationing of health care for the aged. Wouldn’t that be great?!!

  9. Beck talked about the case of the Atlantic Yards project to be developed in Brooklyn, New York. People were being removed/evicted from their homes for a $4.9 billion project.. where eminent domain isn’t applicable but is being used to take over the land. What he didn’t report is important; ACORN’s connection and the developer’s communist ties. ACORN is also represented in court by a known communist organization, Center for Constitutional Rights. I wonder if this $1 M loan to ACORN covered Rathke’s embezzlement?

    ACORN’s Flagrant Eminent Domain Abuse Snips
    November 26 Matthew Vadum

    “The relentlessly sanctimonious radical advocacy group-cum-organized crime syndicate has become the leading cheerleader for the real estate development that is slated to use eminent domain to remove the poor people it claims to represent.

    ACORN, which has long prided itself on fighting the so-called gentrification of neighborhoods as rising property values force the poor to move, has taken money from the project’s developer and signed a binding agreement forcing it to stand behind the project no matter what.

    … it is very unusual for a group to take money in exchange for betraying those it is supposed to represent.

    In 2005, ACORN signed an agreement with Forest City Ratner. In exchange for ACORN’s support, Ratner agreed “to set aside 50% of the expected 4,500 rental housing units for ”affordable housing.” ACORN also accepted a bailout from the developer consisting of a $1 million loan and $500,000 in donations.

    ***..developer [is] Bruce Ratner, who comes from a family chock full of communists and radicals. Bruce’s sister Ellen is a far-left commentator on National Public Radio and his Che Guevara-loving pro-terrorist brother, Michael, is president of the communist Center for Constitutional Rights.

    The Center for Constitutional Rights also happens to be representing ACORN in its meritless “bill of attainder” suit in which ACORN argues its so-called rights have been violated because Congress imposed a ban on federal funding for the group.”

  10. What Happens When a PI Dumpster Dives Behind a San Diego ACORN Office?
    * Information exposing the inner workings of ACORN in California.
    * Sensitive personal information belonging to employees, members and ACORN clients, such as social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, immigration records, and tax returns.
    * ACORN’s political agenda is also laid bare, with thousands upon thousands of documents revealing the depth of the political machine that is ACORN and its disturbing ties not only to public employee labor unions but some of the most radical leftist organizations in existence (I wonder which politicians we will discover are in cahoots with these goofy clowns?).

  11. ACORN member Roseanne Barr Confirms Fellow Activists Shock Admission: ACORN got Obama Elected Snips

    ‘I wonder how all of that organizing skill and knowledge to help elect President Obama coincides with ACORN’s use of Federal Funds and their status as a 501(c)3 non-profit.

    Here is a video of Roseanne confirming her ACORN ties at a rally earlier this year in Watts, CA. Bask in the depth of her thoughts.”

  12. Of course they can!

    Justice Dept. Says Acorn Can Be Paid
    November 27, 2009

    WASHINGTON — The Justice Department has concluded that the Obama administration can lawfully pay the community group Acorn for services provided under contracts signed before Congress banned the government from providing funds to the group.

    Memorandum Opinion

    Page 1 “Opinion addresses only pre-existing contracts that create binding obligations requiring payment and not those that excuse payment in the relevant circumstances.”

    Page 2 “We find that the relevant text of section 163 is not clear with respect to the precise question before us. Congress had available to it–and yet did not use — appropriations language that had previously been construed to prohibit payments even on pre-existing contractual obligations.”

    Page 5 “In sum, section 163 should not be read as directing or authorizing HUD to breach a pre-existing binding contractual obligation to make payments to ACORN or its affiliates, subsidiaries, or allied organizations where doing so would give rise to contractual liability.”

  13. ACORN Sting Hurt ACORN, NOT Its Radical Agenda, And Helped Team Obama
    Nov 27, 2009 Snips

    Tragically, a decision seems to have been made to put aside the inside story of (black) ACORN whistleblower and ex-radical Anita MonCrief and instead to pursue and to promote the “Pimp and Pro” ACORN sting,”

    But the radical ACORN political agenda has moved forward. Last Saturday the United States Senate voted to proceed with Obamacare, and Obama/ACORN/SEIU/La Raza are looking forward to implementing Cap and Tax, automatic voter registration, card check, amnesty for illegals as they socialize America and ensure a permanent government-dependent Democrat majority and a Far Left federal judiciary.

  14. How far will they go? Unbelievable..illegal to get things from the trash..then why were thousands of reporters went to Wasilla to check out their trash bins? These documents were dumped in the middle of the night, but it was another “mistake.”

    ACORN claims “THEFT” of trashed documents in Calif.

    NATIONAL CITY, Calif. — A tempest in a trash can is brewing in San Diego County, where ACORN is trying to recover tens of thousands of documents taken from its garbage by a Republican activist.

    ACORN California Head Organizer Amy Schur said the confidential papers were carelessly included in the trash, and there was no intent to dump rather than shred them.
    “We want to get our property back so that we can properly secure it,” she said.

    An ACORN employee filed a report on Monday with police in National City, a San Diego suburb that has a law forbidding scavenging of trash, Schur said.

    “I believe that these documents were illegally obtained” and posted on the Internet, Schur said.

    The organization, which has offices around the country, contends it is the victim of a coordinated smear campaign.

  15. This bit notes flu as a sare tactic to pass healthcare reform:

    All of this points to a grand medical scam, as even Dick Armey noted in the Obama Flu would be used to scare people so Obamacrypt would be passed by Congress.
    Can anyone forget the masses of deluded, fear struck Americans, camped on sidewalks in the cold night air, just waiting to get an Obama vaccine.

    Sarah is a nirther 🙂
    On Rusty Humphries radio show, in an the exclusive interview, Sarah Palin said the following according to Ben Smith’s transcript, at
    “Would you make the birth certificate an issue if you ran?” she was asked (around 9 minutes into the video above).

    “I think the public rightfully is still making it an issue. I don’t have a problem with that. I don’t know if I would have to bother to make it an issue, because I think that members of the electorate still want answers,” she replied.

    You can watch the interview on video from Ustream.

    She must have seen the analysis of the forged COLB (certification of live brith) at Atlas from June 2008.

    This is at Atlas today.

  17. I read that no one is reporting the fact that Chelsea’s fiancee is an investment banker for Goldman Sachs. Is that true ? Didn’t they get a giant bail out ? hummmm…just wondering ?

  18. Liberal Judge Says ACORN Eligible for $4 Billion of Your Money
    2010 February 4
    Thanks to the Obama administration and an out-of-control liberal judge, ACORN and other leftist activist groups –including the embattled radical group ACORN– could be eligible for up to $3.99 billion in federal funding included in the $3.83 trillion fiscal 2011 budget blueprint President Obama released Monday.

    The $3.99 billion comes from a congressional slush fund known as the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, which is part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) $48.5 billion fiscal 2011 budget. CDBG grants, which are awarded to states and localities, flow indirectly to ACORN and similar groups that compete at the state and local level for grants.

    Because in December federal Judge Nina Gershon restored federal funding of ACORN by issuing a temporary injunction against the congressional funding ban.

  19. Yoohoo Bridgette….A nut by any other name is still a rotten ACORN….
