despite a revision, obama’s fight the smears site still hides the fact that he trained ACORN leaders

in plain english, why is acorn so darn important to know about?

1) acorn has been notoriously known for using intimidation tactics on banks to get them to give subprime loans to people with poor credit. this activity (called ‘direct action’ by community organizers) is the bedrock of the current financial crisis we find ourselves in. yes, acorn contributed in a BIG WAY to the crash of the american economy.

2) acorn is suspected of voter fraud in at least 12 states and the fbi is currently investigating this.

(five excellent pieces telling of obama’s deep involvement with acorn: source 1, source 2, source 3, source 4, source 5)

so, what does this have to do with senator barack obama?

obama claimed he did not train acorn, but…well, that’s untrue

(the following is taken from: “obama campaign makes some revisions to its candidate’s resume” | tuesday, october 14, 2008 | by brit hume, fox news)

now some fresh pickings from the political grapevine: truth hurts

barack obama’s fight the smears web site had to make some adjustments when one of the alleged “smears” turned out to be true.

the political blog gateway pundit reports that thursday the web site read, “fact: barack was never an acorn trainer and never worked for acorn in any other capacity.”

but the cleveland leader newspaper discovered documents proving that obama did work as a trainer for the voter registration group. the obama camp claims its candidate trained for the position but was never hired.

the web page now reads, “fact: acorn never hired obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee.”

what the acorn-obama connection translates to

so, again what does acorn’s intimidation techniques on banks and widespread acorn voter fraud have to do with senator barack obama?

first, barack obama’s intimate ties to acorn, which included training acorn leaders, leaders who engaged in ‘direct action‘ intimidation tactics on banks to force them to give subprime loans to people with poor credit (the cause of our current financial crisis), means that obama actually contributed to the current subprime financial crisis. call it lack of knowledge, lack of judgement, or deliberately planned .. who knows. there’s even evidence obama was no stranger to ‘direct action‘ intimidation techniques himself.

read about how both obama and acorn intimidated banks into giving bad loans HERE.

secondly, concerning acorn’s widespread voter registration fraud, all that can be said here is that barack obama closely aligned himself with acorn his entire career. he made friends. he gained followers. he networked. it’s not rocket science to figure out that obama organized a strong grassroots network through acorn before his polical career began. and this close tie to acorn continues to this day. why is acorn responsible for widespread voter registration fraud this election? is it misguided zeal on the part of devoted followers? who taught them, who inspires them? why is acorn voter registration fraud prevalent in key swing states? connect the dots.

who says obama trained acorn leaders?

“since then, we have invited obama to our leadership training sessions to run the session on power every year, and, as a result, many of our newly developing leaders got to know him before he ever ran for office.” (source)

- toni foulkes, chicago acorn (2004)

obama continues his organizing work largely through classes for future leaders identified by acorn and the centers for new horizons on the south side.” (source)

- the chicago reader (1995)

i’ve been fighting alongside acorn on issues you care about my entire career…” (source, source)

- senator barack obama (2007 speech to acorn after acorn endorsed obama)

“‘he got people to vote with their feet’ on the issue, organizer madeleine talbot said. at the time, talbot worked at the social action group acorn and initially considered obama a competitor. but she became so impressed with his work that she invited him to help train her staff.” (source)

- la times (2008)

oh and by the way…

…there’s the small issue of obama’s campaign giving over $800,000 to an offshoot of ACORN (citizen services inc) for ‘get-out-the-vote’ projects. but there’s more:

“u.s. sen. barack obama’s presidential campaign paid more than $800,000 to an offshoot of the liberal association of community organizations for reform now for services the democrat’s campaign says it mistakenly misrepresented in federal reports.

an obama spokesman said federal election commission reports would be amended to show citizens services inc. — a subsidiary of acorn – worked in ‘get-out-the-vote’ projects, instead of activities such as polling, advance work and staging major events as stated in fec finance reports filed during the primary. fec spokeswoman mary brandenberger said it is not unusual for campaigns to amend reports, even regarding large sums of money.

but, said blair latoff, spokeswoman for the republican national committee: ‘barack obama’s failure to accurately report his campaign’s financial records is an incredibly suspicious situation that appears to be an attempt to hide his campaign’s interaction with a left-wing organization previously convicted of voter fraud. for a candidate who claims to be practicing ‘new’ politics, his fec reports look an awful lot like the ‘old-style’ chicago politics of yesterday.'” (read the rest of the pittsburg tribune-review article HERE.)

“in february, after the groups political arm endorsed obama, an acorn affiliate received $800,000 for get-out-the-vote efforts. the campaign initially listed the purpose as event activity – a discrepancy the gop argues was to hide the intent.” (source)

“wnd reported in august obama’s campaign paid more than $800,000 in services to citizen services inc. (csi), a nonprofit organization that is an offshoot of acorn. according to federal election commission records reviewed by the tribune-review, the obama campaign paid csi $832,598.29, from feb. 25 to may 17, including $564,342.21 for “stage, lighting and sound.” the payments stood out since csi does not offer services for stage, lighting or sound.” (source)

»  the acorn obama helped mold

“important as these questions of funding and partisanship are, the larger point is that obama’s ties to acorn – arguably the most politically radical large-scale activist group in the country – are wide, deep, and longstanding. if acorn is adept at creating a non-partisan, inside-game veneer for what is in fact an intensely radical, leftist, and politically partisan reality, so is obama himself. this is hardly a coincidence: obama helped train acorn’s leaders in how to play this game. for the most part, obama seems to have favored the political-insider strategy, yet it’s clear that he knew how to play the in-your-face “direct action” game as well. and surely during his many years of close association with acorn, obama had to know what the group was all about.”
