Obama Website Lies About ACORN Ties

Monday, October 13th, 2008

JERUSALEM – Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign is misleading the public regarding the presidential candidate’s ties to a radical leftist organization that has admitted to major financial improprieties and has been convicted in numerous, massive voter fraud scandals.

Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign Friday stepped up its efforts to draw attention to Obama’s alleged relationship with ACORN, or the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, holding a conference call in which McCain spokesman Rick Davis accused Obama of making “very inconsistent remarks about what his relationship with this organization is.”

In response to the increased focus on ACORN, the Obama campaign last week claimed on its “Fight the Smears” website the presidential candidate was “never an ACORN community organizer; ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee; ACORN was not part of Project Vote, the successful voter registration drive Barack ran in 1992.”

But these blanket statements are false and misleading.

In 1992, Obama was director of Project Vote in Chicago, which helped register 150,000 voters on the city’s South Side. Obama’s successful work was credited in multiple media reports with helping to elect Democratic Senator Carol Moseley Braun.

Obama’s campaign claims ACORN was “not part of” Project Vote, but the organization’s incorporation papers, obtained by WND, show Project Vote is a trademark name whose parent company is registered at the same New Orleans address in which ACORN and multiple ACORN affiliates are housed.

Obama himself previously connected Project Vote to ACORN.

“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 drives in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work,” Obama was quoted on his own campaign website as saying at an ACORN meeting, according to a post by official Obama website blogger Sam Graham-Felsen.

Many Convicted Felons Remain on Voter Rolls

Monday, October 13th, 2008

More voter fraud.

More than 30,000 Florida felons who by law should have been stripped of their right to vote remain registered to cast ballots in this presidential battleground state, a Sun Sentinel investigation has found.

Many are faithful voters, with at least 4,900 turning out in past elections.

Another 5,600 are not likely to vote Nov. 4 — they’re still in prison.

Of the felons who registered with a party, Democrats outnumber Republicans more than two to one.

ACORN Registers 7-Year-Old to Vote

Monday, October 13th, 2008

I wonder how many past elections the Democrats have stolen using this group?

O’jahnae Smith is ready and registered to vote this November.

There’s only one problem: She’s 7 years old.

The Connecticut girl is 11 years too young – and nobody in her family knows how she ended up on a voter registration form submitted by ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

“She’s registered to vote?” said a surprised Jerome Smith, O’jahnae’s teenage brother. “She’s too young to vote.”

But that didn’t stop someone from forging the child’s signature on a voter registration card and giving her a fake birth date that upped her age to 27. The family told The Post a drug-addicted relative may have given the bogus card to ACORN.

Voter registration fraud complaints like these continue to mount for the group, already under scrutiny in 11 states where hundreds, if not thousands, of new registrations are being questioned.

ACORN volunteers have been found to register dead people and even put members of the Dallas Cowboys on Nevada lists.

The community organizing group has a long history of flooding low- and middle-income neighborhoods in election years with temporary workers instructed to register 20 to 25 voters per day – or risk getting fired.

Most states prohibit paying per signature, but ACORN workers earning $8 to $9 an hour still have to hit their quotas. And many need the money – including some ex-cons in work-release programs.

ACORN’s controversial tactics have fueled John McCain’s criticism of Barack Obama, whose campaign paid an ACORN spinoff – Community Services Inc. – about $800,000 to knock on doors and urge people to vote for Obama in four key primary states: Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas.

In his pre-politics days, Obama ran the Illinois chapter of Project Vote in 1992, before it hooked up with ACORN.

School Takes First-Graders to See Lesbian Teacher Wed

Monday, October 13th, 2008

A public school in San Francisco bused 18 first-graders to City Hall yesterday, so the youngsters could scatter rose petals in celebration of their lesbian teacher’s wedding.

The students, from Creative Arts Charter School, waited on the steps for their teacher with bags of pink rose petals, bottles of bubbles and, at least for some, with political buttons asking Californians to vote down Proposition 8, a ballot measure that seeks to define marriage in the state as a union between one man and one woman.

“She’s a really nice teacher. She’s the best,” 6-year-old Chava Novogrodsky-Godt told the San Francisco Chronicle, wearing a “No on 8” button on her shirt. “I want her to have a good wedding.”

As WND reported, supporters of California’s Proposition 8 have claimed that combining legalized same-sex marriage with the state’s mandate that schools “teach respect for marriage and committed relationships” would result in kindergartners being taught the virtues of homosexual marriage. Opponents have called such arguments fabrications and scare tactics.

Yesterday’s field trip wasn’t quite kindergartners, but it was close.

“It shows that not only can it happen, but it has already happened,” said Chip White, press secretary for the Yes on 8 campaign.

“It’s just utterly unreasonable that a public school field trip would be to a same-sex wedding,” White told the Chronicle. “This is overt indoctrination of children who are too young to have an understanding of its purpose.”

“Obama Mocks Christian Bible” by Jennifer

Monday, October 13th, 2008

My good friend, Jennifer Rast at The Scriptorium, has this to say about Obama.

The ad below shows Barack Obama standing at a podium mocking several books of the Bible and those who believe what the Bible says. Obama has a history of mocking Christians who, according to him are just dolts that “cling to their guns and religion”. What kind of Christian mocks the word of God and has nothing but disdain for those who hold to the Word of God to be truth? A true Christian doesn’t! Nor does a true believer in Christ sit in a pew for 20 years and listen to an angry, hate filled pastor spew bile and hatred against his country, and white people. It will be a tragedy for this country if we elect this hateful, Marxist, Socialist phony. To any Christians who are uninformed enough to consider voting for this man, do you really want a leader running our country who mocks your faith, laughs at the Bible, and listened to 20 years of Jeremiah Wrights “God D*** America!” speeches? Not to mention his years of work and socializing with a domestic terrorist, and his support for the election of Odinga in Kenya – a man who burned down 800 Christian churches, had his thugs go on a murderous rampage, and wanted to impose Sharia Law on the Christians of Kenya.

This is the shorter version of the advertisement. Watch the longer one at the website mentioned at the end of the ad. Oh, and if you here from Obama’s “Stop the Smears” crew that the person who made the ad is “just trying to dupe Christians out of their money, and he hasn’t run any ads”, Obama is lying as usual. The ad has been running in PA, and every dime of the contributions has gone to a small cost of making the video and the rest to air time. Obama has a problem with lying. Just what we need more of in our government.
