ACORN Vegas Office Raided in Voter Fraud Investigation

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

I’ve suspected for years that this organization is involved in voter fraud. I also don’t find it the least bit odd that they are pushing for the Democrats. Remember, to the liberal mind, the end result (electing Obama and retaining control of the House and Senate) justifies the means (lying, cheating, threatening, bullying…). In their minds there’s nothing wrong with putting dead people on the voter roles and buying votes with beer and cigarettes. Of course this is fraud and against the law, but they don’t care. The end justifies the means…no matter how dirty, dishonest and covered in slime one ends up being during the process.

LAS VEGAS — Nevada state authorities are raiding the Las Vegas headquarters of an organization that works to get low-income people to vote.

A Nevada secretary of state’s office spokesman said Tuesday that investigators are looking for evidence of voter fraud at the office of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also called ACORN.

No one was at the ACORN office when state agents arrived with a search warrant and began carting records and documents away.

Secretary of State spokesman Bob Walsh says ACORN is accused of submitting multiple voter registrations with false and duplicate names.

The raid comes two months after state and federal authorities formed a task force to pursue election-fraud allegations in Nevada.

Students Indoctrinated to Become “Obama Youth” – Chant “Alpha Omega”

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

OK, first off, teachers should not be indoctrinating their students for either candidate. Secondly, in my opinion, the use of the chant “Alpha Omega” is a clear reference to the Bible book of Revelation, which refers to God as the “Alpha and Omega”. More Obama-messiah Derangement Syndrome at work in our liberal education system.

A middle school teacher has been suspended for posting a video of his Barack Obama-slogan chanting, arm-waving drill team on YouTube.

The report from Fox News said the teacher, whose name was being withheld by the school district, was suspended today for the video revealing his students chanting lines from Obama talking points and wearing military-style uniforms.

According to Fox News, the school learned about the posting of the video, called “Obama Youth – Junior Fraternity Regiment,” and immediately took action.

The video is embedded here: (see original link for the video. -ed.)

It shows 10 black male students in 8th or 9th grades from the Urban Community Leadership Academy in Kansas City, a public charter school organized by the University of Central Missouri. They march in the room chanting, “Alpha, omega, alpha, omega.”

Although the immediate source of the phrase “alpha omega” likely traces to the black fraternity step team tradition, the deeper source derives from the book of Revelation, which refers to God as the “Alpha and Omega,” the first and last letters of the classical alphabet.

That chant soon yields to, “Yes we can.”

School superintendent Joyce McGautha was not pleased. She did not approve and does not condone the video. Not only was the teacher suspended, further drill activities were halted.

“Taxpayers have every reason to be upset,” she said.

The superintendent said because of the “legal action that we’ll probably have to take against the teacher,” his identity would be withheld at this point.

The Fox News report said the students studied Obama’s economic plan with the teacher, and the superintendent did not know whether the teacher or the students scripted the routine. The group should have also studied Republican John McCain’s economic plan, the superintendent said.

The superintendent said many of the school’s activities are recorded, and the teacher had been warned in a letter not to put it on the Internet.

Anonymous forum participants on the Fox News site were disdainful of the Democrats.

“The Democratic Party has become taken over by distorted closet socialists,” said one.

“Why does this not surprise me in the least, coming from an Obama supporter?” said another. “He deserves to be fired and NEVER allowed to teach again!”

WND reported just last week when nearby Missouri law officials, including public prosecutors, who were reportedly planning to “respond immediately” to any misleading advertisements against Obama if they “might violate Missouri ethics laws,” said they were backing off the intimidating implications of that report, promising they have no intention of prosecuting anyone.

As WND reported, prosecuting attorneys Bob McCulloch and Jennifer Joyce originally announced on KMOV-TV in St. Louis their participation in Obama’s “Truth Squad,” pledging to defend the candidate from untruthful ads with an undefined “immediate” response.

“Whether it is directly attributable to the (McCain) campaign or to one of the soft money operations,” McCulloch told the station, “if they’re not going to tell the truth, somebody’s got to step up and say, ‘That’s not the truth. This is the truth.'”

The move prompted Missouri’s governor to object that the prosecutors were using “police state tactics” to squelch information hurtful to the Obama campaign.

“What Senator Obama and his helpers are doing is scandalous beyond words,” wrote Gov. Matt Blunt in a statement. “The party that claims to be the party of Thomas Jefferson is abusing the justice system and offices of public trust to silence political criticism with threats of prosecution and criminal punishment.”

Gop Called ‘Foolish’ For Participating in Debates Moderated by Liberals

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

It is foolish to participate in debates with an openly liberal moderator. I do not believe Ifill showed much bias because of all the hoopla surrounding her as choice of moderator, but Brokaw may be a different story entirely. I daresay if the moderator were a radical right-winger, the left would pitch a fit!

Well-known conservative activist Richard Viguerie is bashing the Republican Party and the McCain campaign for agreeing to participate in debates moderated by “liberal establishment” journalists.

The choice of Gwen Ifill to moderate the vice-presidential debate sparked an uproar last week among some conservatives, who argued the PBS anchor should have recused herself from the debate because she is scheduled to release a book on Inauguration Day that praises Barack Obama. The final two presidential debates will be moderated by Tom Brokaw of NBC (tonight) and Bob Schieffer of CBS (October 15). (see earlier article)

Viguerie, the chairman of Conservative HQ, believes Republicans are foolish to approve moderators like Ifill, Brokaw, and Schieffer. “Why in the world would Republicans ever agree to have these three people — Gwen Ifill, Bob Schieffer, and Tom Brokaw — moderate debates? Democrats wouldn’t be so stupid,” Viguerie contends. “They won’t even do debates on Fox News. Earlier this year, the [Democratic] presidential candidates all refused to do debates on Fox.”

Last month, during MSNBC’s coverage of the Republican National Convention, NBC anchor Tom Brokaw dismissed the notion that the mainstream media was attacking Sarah Palin, the GOP vice-presidential nominee. According to Brokaw, the charge of liberal media bias is merely a “political tactic” frequently used by Republicans to “raise the specter that everything that America sees is controlled by a tiny band of Eastern liberal elites.”

In accord with Viguerie, political scientist and author Charles Dunn believes that toight’s debate is a make-or-break situation for Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

“Gotcha Questions For Katie Couric” by Dennis Prager

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

Oh how I would love to see the tables turned on the know-it-all, leftist, liberal media.

Just as Charlie Gibson did in his interview with Sarah Palin, Katie Couric set out to humiliate the Republican vice-presidential candidate with a series of “gotcha” questions.

This tactic – rarely employed with major liberal candidates – could be used equally effectively against Couric, or most any other liberal member of the television news media. It would be highly instructive to have Couric asked questions in the same way in which she (and Gibson) asked questions of Palin.

For example:

Q: Critics of the war in Iraq argue that prior to the invasion of Iraq, America had never attacked a country that had no plans to attack it. How, then, do you explain the Korean War?

On my radio show, I have asked this question of some of the most celebrated names among liberal intellectuals, and they had little or nothing to say. One major editor simply admitted that he had little familiarity with that war. That is too bad because America invaded a country that had absolutely no intention, let alone ability, to attack the United States. The United States attacked Korea – and sacrificed over 30,000 American lives – solely in order to prevent Korea from becoming a totalitarian communist state. We succeeded in the southern half, and over 50 years later, North Korea remains essentially a gigantic concentration camp.

Q: Many Americans believe that the most important way of understanding the effects of taxation on government revenues is the Laffer Curve. What is your opinion about this?

The Laffer Curve, which, unlike the “Bush Doctrine,” is objectively definable, is perhaps the most important economic argument against tax increases – because at a given point of increased taxation, the government will actually receive less tax revenue, not more. It would be quite surprising if many TV news people, including anchors, could define this economic theory, let alone intelligently discuss it.

Q: Is there any point in a woman’s pregnancy at which you would call an abortion immoral?

Couric spent some time trying to show how immoral Palin’s anti-abortion position is, since it even extends to cases of rape or incest. That was not necessarily unfair questioning. Even some who believe that human life begins at conception are prepared to allow abortions in the case of rape or incest. But it would be highly educational for Americans to see the tables reversed on pro-choice people: Are there any circumstances when a pro-choice person is prepared to make a moral judgment on killing a human fetus? How about during the third trimester (presuming, of course, that the pregnancy poses no threat to the life or health of the mother)? Or when an abortion is performed solely for convenience (for example, a married woman who was planning to start a new business or to take a long-planned trip abroad – and the pregnancy therefore came at an inconvenient time)?

Some more possible questions:

Q: Members of the news media believe, correctly, that individuals running for political office, because of their potentially great impact on American life, should subject themselves to interview after interview about their views, values, personal life and knowledge base by often hostile members of the news media. But, the most powerful members of the news media, people who have more impact on American life than almost any politician in America, do not allow themselves to be interviewed about their views, values, personal life and knowledge of the issues. Why not?

Q: Which of the Federalist Papers do you think is most important? Why?

Q: In a question to Palin, you said that “women make 77 cents for every dollar a man makes.” If that is so, why don’t employers only hire women whenever possible? What employer wouldn’t want to save 23 percent for the same work? Is it possible that many women choose more flexible hours, want jobs with less travel and may choose less demanding work given their desire to be home more?

Is Sin the Root of America’s Financial Crisis?

Tuesday, October 7th, 2008

A Christian financial expert says America’s current financial liquidity problem can’t be solved by a government bailout or the policy of a new elected official, but only if people take responsibility for their sin.

Chuck Bentley is the CEO of Crown Financial Ministries and host of the “Money Life” radio program. He says the $700 billion Wall Street bailout bill signed into law by President Bush contained “the good, the bad, and the ugly.”

Bentley likes the controversial provision that gives the Treasury secretary funding to remove the bad mortgage assets off the books of banks, as well as the tax relief for small business owners that was added to the legislation.

But Bentley says he still would not have voted for the bill because it contains an “outrageous” amount of pork and raises the federal debt limit to $11.3 trillion.

“I think it’s abhorrent,” he states bluntly. “It’s putrid that our legislators would try to throw that pork into this bill….I think we do need the good parts of it — but the bad parts are politicizing the issue. They’re not ‘sweeteners.’ They’re feathers in the cap of politicians, [and] I think it’s actually unpatriotic.”

Bentley believes the country’s current financial woes can be attributed to the sin of greed and the failure of Americans to acknowledge that sin and repent of it before God.
