ACORN and The Stimulus Bill: Democrats and Obama Pay Back Their Corrupt Friends, Totalitarianism In The Making? $4 Billion To Fund Voter Fraud

National Review noted prior to last fall's election the shady, if not corrupt and illegal relationship between Barack Obama and his community organizer bedfellows at ACORN.

  • ACORN, the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now, is essentially a Marxist shakedown outfit. One of its main rackets is election fraud — but it can also be very helpful if you happen to be a Leftist activist who finds himself needing, say, to foment a riot, vandalize public property, shut down legislative hearings or opposition conferences, harass the families of elected officials, extort leave-us-alone pay-offs from banks, promote illegal immigration, or the like.
  • Like ACORN, Obama is a community organizer in the Saul Alinsky radical mode, and he goes way back — two decades back — with the organization. He represented ACORN as a lawyer, taught “organizing” to ACORN’s up and coming rabble-rousers, colluded with ACORN in Chicago “get out the vote” projects, funded ACORN when he sat on the boards of left-wing charities, and exploited ACORN’s enthusiastic support when he won his senate seat in 2004 — a victory the “non-partisan” ACORN can’t help itself but claim credit for.

It should not come as any surprise that ACORN supports the Congressional "spending bill", aka economic stimulus package.

The Obama/Pelosi/Reid plan is brilliant in its simplicity. They are buying our country. Beneath all the rhetoric, is there plan to divide and conquer, as Rush pointed out yesterday.

Their groundswell of "boots on the ground", aka Obama's Army, will use voter intimidation, illegal fundraising schemes and general fear-mongering of the American people to not only ensure passage of Obama's socialist agenda but to make it as difficult as possible for anyone to oppose the Totalitarian rule of the 21st Century Democrats.

Yes, The "T-Word", read this definition closely. Notice anything that sounds familiar? This is happening right in front of us!

  • Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a concept used to describe political systems whereby a state regulates nearly every aspect of public and private life. Totalitarian regimes or movements maintain themselves in political power by means of an official all-embracing ideology and propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that controls the state, personality cults, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of free discussion and criticism, the use of mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror tactics.

From John Boehner's statement: "ACORN Could Get Billions from Democrats' Trillion Dollar Spending Plan "Job Creation" Bill Offers Taxpayer-Funded Bonanza for Organization Reportedly Under Federal Investigation"

  • Washington, Jan 23 - The House Democrats’ trillion dollar spending bill, approved on January 21 by the Appropriations Committee and headed to the House floor next week for a vote, could open billions of taxpayer dollars to left-wing groups like the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). ACORN has been accused of perpetrating voter registration fraud numerous times in the last several elections; is reportedly under federal investigation; and played a key role in the irresponsible schemes that caused a financial meltdown that has cost American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars since last fall.

  • House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) and other Republicans are asking a simple question: what does this have to do with job creation? Are Congressional Democrats really going to borrow money from our children and grandchildren to give handouts to ACORN in the name of economic “stimulus?”

    Incredibly, the Democrats’ bill makes groups like ACORN eligible for a $4.19 billion pot of money for “neighborhood stabilization activities.” Funds for this purpose were authorized in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act, signed into law in 2008. However, these funds were limited to state and local governments. Now House Democrats are taking the unprecedented step of making ACORN and other groups eligible for these funds:

  • The House Democrats’ trillion dollar spending bill also includes $1 billion for the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program. CDBG funds are given by the federal government to state and local governments which often contract with nonprofits for services related to the purpose of the grant.

    ACORN knows how to secure CDBG funds. Audit reports filed by ACORN’s headquarters with the Office of Management and Budget show that ACORN spent $1,588,599 in Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program funds from FY 2003 through FY 2007. It is not clear from these records when or from what source the funds were awarded to ACORN. It is also not clear whether ACORN chapters or affiliates have received CDBG grants on their own.

Let Freedom Ring adds this perspective.

  • What stimulative purpose will giving $4,190,000,000 to ACORN and like-minded organizations serve? I’d argue that it doesn’t and that it wasn’t intended to have a stimulative effect. I’d argue that the most likely reason this money is in the Pork-O-Rama bill is to pay off longtime political allies. (Corrupt allies at that.)

Is this really the change you thought you were getting?

Look, we understand the Obama Infatuation. We don't agree with it, but we get it.

We understand Bush Derangement Syndrome. We don't agree with it, but we get it.

We understand many Americans are bleeding-heart anti-war types. We don't agree with it, but we get it.

We understand the economy is pretty bad.

We understand the desire to "change" but you had other choices. Yet, you chose to place the most Liberal Senator in Washington in charge of the country.

We hope for the best because we are Americans. We are Patriotic.

But if President Obama gets everything he wants, we all deserve what we asked for. Not just the Red States, or just the Blue States, but all of us in The United States.
