New GOP Report Accuses ACORN Of Widespread Corruption

February 24, 2010 by  

New GOP report accuses ACORN of widespread corruption Republican members of the House Oversight Committee have issued a new report accusing the embattled Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN) of political corruption and numerous fraudulent dealings.

The 50,000 page report, titled Follow the Money: ACORN, SEIU and their Political Allies, accuses the scandal-plagued organization of voter registration fraud, improper use of taxpayer’s money and an unlawful partnership with a major labor union.

"Perceptions that ACORN is a charitable organization are simply wrong and part of ACORN’s efforts to deceive the American people," said Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the top Republican on the committee.

"ACORN is a political machine that uses a complex corporate web [and] powerful political allies to break laws in pursuit of a partisan agenda," he added.

The report also alleges that ACORN contributed to the financial collapse by intimidating banks into lowering mortgage lending standards, Fox News reports. Moreover, it accuses the organization of entering into an illegal agreement with the Service Employees International Union, a partnership that has been used to target political candidates, Republicans say.

Officials with the group are currently challenging Congress’ decision to strip ACORN of its financing in federal court.

    Becker Works As Lawyer For SEIU, AFL-CIO And ACORN. “Becker [is] an associate general counsel to both the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the AFL-CIO”; “Mr. Becker says he ‘worked with and provided advice’ to SEIU Local 880 in Chicago … one of two SEIU locals currently in the national spotlight for its deep ties with Acorn … Acorn co-founder Wade Rathke praised Mr. Becker by name … ‘For my money, Craig’s signal contribution has been his work in crafting and executing the legal strategies and protections which have allowed the effective organization of informal workers …” (Kevin Bogardus, “Labor Board Nominee Heats Up Battle Over Union-Organizing Rules, The Hill, 01/25/10; Editorial, “Acorn’s Ally At The NLRB,” The Wall Street Journal, 10/15/09)

    Community organizing gone to seed…Is this what we really need in America?

  • SiliconDoc

    Wow. 50,000 pages. Well, I think audacious hope for change is a big zero game.
    I heard the dims were crushed under pressure and withdrew the acorn money, but people like Beck knew better, I heard not long ago all the funds and then some were restored, and it is pretty clear the rest of the stimulus is a gigantic midterm re-election slush fund for the demcrimocrats.

  • J C

    ACORN is a nicely dressed version of the brown shirts of 1930′s Germany. Anyone who feels they need to organize your community is a communist by definition and should be given the bum’s rush right into the ocean. If or when these people show up at your door to conduct a census, ask first if they are ACORN…then give them what they deserve, “open hostility” and no answers to any questions. None!

    • DaveH

      JC,
      Surely you wouldn’t really expect anybody connected with ACORN to be honest?

      • Gary Sommers

        No I don,t expect honosty. But I can say where is the FBI. Charge them all under the ricco act as organized crim bosses.If you make your bed with the UNION,Then go to Jail for corruption and everything
        else they can get to stick. Stick that in your teflon ACORN.

    • DaveH
      • Jana

        Wow Dave, I agree with JC. This is a great site and good information to know. I too am going to send this out to everyone I know.

    • JC

      DaveH , That is a very good link and it’s going out to everyone on my email list. By what authority do they ask for your personal information? None! They have no authority to do any more than count people, and even that is only at 10 year intervals.

    • andrea francis

      Does anyone remember when Obama spoke of an “army” as powerful as the military would form in America and all the progressive-liberal audience cheered? Maybe Acorn will grow into a mighty tree, a part of this army. There may be other organizations who will be in the army too. Like FEMA.the unions, ex-military folks , Black Panthers, and others. Is everyone getting the picture? Just what is this army’s objective, what is their mission? Pay attention fellow Americans!!!

  • Georgia

    Time for IMPEACHMENT of this Administration!!!! Throw all the bums out for TREASON against the United States of America! They are the biggest threat to our Republic; our liberties; and freedom! I vote for a “freeze” on all new legislation; new spending; and expansion of “big” government! I vote for a reduction in force of government offices…cut the pork out of administrative offices that go nowhere; do nothing except print and spend money to bankrupt this Nation! ACORN must be dismantled and all funding cut off, and those who have misused taxpayer money should go to jail or deported!!!!

    • J C

      I’ll be the first to second that!

    • Barbara

      You have my vote on this, but the democrats control Congress, so unless we can eliminate them one by one on charges of wrong doing, we are stuck. There almost needs to be complete control by Independents and Republicans in office to implement this.
      Its amazing that they can openly bribe, and get away with it because they are politicos! We need to continue to work on this. Another thing, we have to institute TERM LIMITS. NO career politicos, anymore. That is how this power grab has started. Look up Plivens and Clowder (sp) or watch Glenn Beck. The progressives are taking over and trying to overwhelm the system to bring America down. Maybe this will be the “The Emergency” they are waiting for. “Watch the Money” during the elections, also.

      • jim

        while they are at it, they should get rid of charle wrangle who has been investigated for 3 years for tax fraud but is still there.

        • Joe H.

          jim what do you expect? He’s being investigated by his croneys!!!!

    • Tim

      Georgia, you obviously don’t know anything about the U.S. Constitution. It says that the grounds for impeachment are treason and high crimes and misdemeanors. Explain to me what the Obama administration has done that constitutes impeachable offenses!

      If anyone should have been impeached, it should have been Ronald Reagan (Iran-Contra Affair) and George W. Bush (Iraq War, spying on Americans, Cruelty to detainees, et al).

      • J C

        How about undermining the American economy with a debt never before seen? How about allowing the unAmerican policies already in place that are unConstitutional to continue? (so much for change) How about his inability to even prove his eligibility to hold office? How about ACORN ( a communist organization) which he represented as a lawyer and funds with taxpayer money? How about his selling out our sovereignty to global interests?
        It just goes on and on…Treason!

        • DaveH

          Don’t forget Lying, Lying, and more Lying. Obama is a pathological Liar.
          And then there’s stealing of our money and our childrens’ money and our grandchildrens’ money. And the children and grandchildren didn’t even get a vote in the matter.
          Also, note that Obama taught Law (so they say), and he swore an oath to defend the Constitution to take office. So he can’t plead ignorance. Yet, he has continuously pushed to assume power at the Federal level that clearly isn’t allowed by the Constitution.

          • Joe H.

            DaveH
            Let’s not let timmy forget that Obummer said that he had no knowledge of the workings of ACORN yet Glenn had a tape showing Obummer saying that he has worked with ACORN since he started in politics!!!

          • DaveH

            Joe,
            That man lies almost every time he speaks. Only people ravenously seeking the money of others can ignore that.

          • Jana

            Or, who are blind or just refuse to see the truth.

        • Warrior

          Are BJ’s in the WH an impeachable offense?

          • JC

            That reminds me….I wonder how Monika is doing? Seems like just yesterday she was crawling around the White House on her hands and knees…

          • DaveH

            She’s all Groin up now.

          • Claire

            DaveH–what a reply!! You started my day with a good laugh.

          • JC

            hahahahaha…good one! :)

          • Joe H.

            Warrior,
            I’m not upset he got one, having to wake up next to Hellary every morning it’s understandable. It’s the FACT that he did it in what is supposed to be the most respected office in this nation!!!

          • Claire

            JoeH–What do you expect? The guy is/was crude. He has the morals of an alley cat.

          • Joe H.

            Claire,
            Here I thought you were an animal lover, then you go and insult an alley cat!!!!

          • Claire

            JoeH–A mere slip of the tongue!! Another good comment to give me a good laugh—to start my day with humor is great. I still love animals, just not Clinton’s kind.

        • cr747

          J C,, just about to land in Dallas,, probably within 30-45 minutes.. I like what you said.. All of you keep up the good work.. Been in Washington all day,, And I think our boy Obama is going down like the Titanic.. He has canceled about everything on his agenda:: He is a squirming like a snake caught with an egg in his mouth.. What a LAUGH::: Don’t stop now keep piling it on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        Tim
        Your obviously part of the problem by listening to you run your mouth. I bet your part of A-hole(Acorn). Well you and your communist buddies will get yours in time. The two PRESIDENTS you talked about were good people and men, unlike the trash and cowards we have trying to figure out how to run this country, or should I say run it into the ground.

      • James

        Tim, Would President Obama’s phoney Hawaiian birth certificate be a misdemeanor?

  • cerebus23

    ACORN corrupt and partisan, shocking……really, i wonder how much money these official reports cost? and wth isn’t the press doing more to expose this stuff, oh wait i get it, because ACORN is a left wing partisan group so cnn cnbc 3/4 of the newpapers yadda yadda think ACORN is the best thing since sliced bread.

  • thefedupamerican

    Having seen the report on ACORN, it seems that the head of this hydra is made up of some very calculating and evil people who have fooled a bunch of innocents who make up the ‘workers’ of ACORN into thinking they’re helping the poor. In actuality, they’re amassing wealth and power for the evil at the top. And now they’re doing as predicted. Going underground to rise again under a different name and corporation. thefedupamerican.com

    • Michael J.

      Fedup,
      part of what you say is true, in that Acorn leadership is protected by plausible deniability. The organization itself is a form of 21st century slavery, which I refer too as The Acorn Plantation.

      • Joe H.

        Michael J,
        Especially when you figure it was started by two white guys!!! Wink, wink!

  • Warrior

    So now they’ve decided to morph into less identifiable organizations. Smart creatures these Acorn types.

    • TIME

      Yes thats a a fact when cought with hand in cookie jar, always claim {“you did not have your hand in the cookie jar.”}

      We have recycled these puppets over and over. When will the spin cycle end?
      The quest continues. Barry said he did, then he said he had never, then he said its possible, then he said its impossible.

      But wait next week Barry will say he was confused and had the wrong page in his new book, How I helped screw over 300 million people with lies and cover lies.
      To be followed by his book How I didn’t go to jail after I left office and how you too can do the same.

      • Joe H.

        Time
        don’t forget “it was the other guy that had his hand in the cookie jar blame him for me breaking it!”

    • J C

      Cockroaches are very adaptable. A total fumigation of the White House may be necessary. ;)

  • Sweetness4Rock

    Do we need any more proof that ACORN is not what it says it is? Video was enough for me when the whole helping pimps and prostitutes dodge taxes thing went down….. stuff like that was all across America. And how Obama is trying to clean ACORN off his hands, it’s pretty funny because he’ll say, “I had and have nothing to do with them…” then he’ll say, “I was a uh uh uh uh partner with uh uh uh uh uh I supported them with my uh uh uh chief of uh justice uh uh uh uh.” I think it’s hilarious.

    • Warrior

      uh uh uh, I’ll call you or you call me uh uh uh we’ll get in touch with each other uh uh uh, I want to know your uh uh uh uh thoughts, uh uh uh uh, thirteen years ago uh uh uh the only dealings uh uh uh I had uh uh uh was uh I worked with the uh uh uh Justice Dept uh uh on some Acorn stuff uh uh and that’s all folks! A heepada heepada. O’Bama Fud.

      • JeffH

        Elmer, what do you know about it? Uh Uh UH!

      • Sweetness4Rock

        Yeah, uh uh uh that’s what it was uh uh uh…Jeeze I need a glass of water…Uh the Justice uh uh uh Depart uh ment.

  • Raggs

    Finally someone see’s the ligth… ACORN and SEIU are all under obama’s wing’s. I’m just wondering how much of this can be tied to him.

  • Steve – Kansas

    The unfortunate thing is that they will still get the money. ACORN is breaking into regional groups (offices) and will soon be asking for money for each of these regional offices; which will probably get them more money. Their close association with SEIU is of benefit to them and Obama since they are the strong arm thugs for both.

    Our country has never been more corrupt than it is right now and I’m afraid it’s only going to get worse with the mid-term elections coming up. All I can say is to hold on tight because it’s going to be a long rough ride.

    • DaveH

      As Government Grows, Corruption Flows.
      The only real solution is to withhold your votes from any candidate that doesn’t promise to shrink the size of Government dramatically.

  • Faithbeliever

    Not to mention the ties between the president and acorn, which he continually denies his involvement with them. New video is out about him saying he did work with acorn when he was a senator.

  • Raggs

    Why hasn’t obama been impeached? what are we waiting for?

  • Tim

    That 50,000 page document by the Rethuglican Committee was probably one of the biggest wastes of taxpayer money I’ve ever heard of. These rethuglican congressmen were elected to serve the public, and all they do is a witchhunt on ACORN. Who gives a damn about that? I’m interested in jobs, the economy, and health care reform. Those are the things that rethuglicans totally neglect!

    Because of their incompetence, all rethuglicans should be kicked out of office as soon as possible.

    • Warrior

      Progressives must go no matter what persuasion!

      • J C

        Yep, especially since the direction of their “progress” is communism and subservience to a global government.

            Of course Tim and Coaldunger would be against anyone investigating their employer. I’m still waiting for denniso and phil to chime in and try and deflect some guilt from their mother company with their typical screaming rhetoric.
            Piglosi, Reid, Chuck U Schumer, Bawney Fwank, Chris Dodd & the other liberals will do everything in their power to quash any forward movement against acorn by the conservatives. Just more of the same from the socialist majority in congress.

        Stingy union thug? At least I got the guts and balls to keep my wife.You don’t.You got a live in wife, which one of you wear the panties in the family,you or her?Victor.You kept your distance from Jim Bob. He called you, brainless one.Right? We union coal miners are real men,not some pathetic little cement truck driver.You can’t even hold a job as executive.You are in deed weird, no one goes off the deep end like you do. I suggest you get some professional help,it not easy being a loser.

        • DaveH

          So your idea of real men is those who gang up and take money from others by force? Sorry, I will pass. The club I would join would have honest people in it.

      Representative Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the top Republican on the committee has been one of the outspoken Reps from California, of all places. It’s great to hear him speak up and challenge these morons.

      Tim, It seems that not only are all the outrageous earmarks in Obama’s fiscal 2011 budget, but ACORN, the embezzlement-prone, voter-registration-fraud-plagued, child prostitution promoting, leftist community organizing group, is slated to receive nearly $4 billion from a taxpayer-funded slush fund!

    • blackhat

      Okay Tim, you and coal can send your tax dollars to a partisan crap org like ACORN and the rest of us will cut funding…

    • s c

      Oy, Timmy. If you have any plans for being objective, please remember that your icons have never figured out how to get rid of their own incompetents (assuming they ever cared). If all it took to blast someone out of office was an accusation of incompetence, we could have been rid of Ted Kennedy a long time ago. In case you don’t remember, old Ted dreamed the HMO concept (which he later came to “despise”). Also, he supposedly worked on immigration reform for 30+ years and NEVER came up with a functional plan. THAT’S what I call PURE INCOMPETENCE,Timmy.
      Be careful what you wish for, guy. You just might get it.

          During the Presidential campaign I recall seeing a woman from Detroit
          saying Obama gonna fill my tank and pay my mortgage…I wonder how that’s working out for her.
          If Obama does start filling her tank and paying her mortgage there’s no point in anybody working at all. We’ll just wait around for the free stuff.

  • Mike In MI

    This stuff is all straight from the pit of hell. The devil himself stands behind Barak, Reid, Pelosi and all their little forktailed friends. How else can you account for such an intense, directed persistent attack over so many generations – about eight generations in all since Marx, Lenin and Trotsky. There is only one way a sustained, coordinated attack from one generation to another like this gets carried out in a multiplicity of the world’s regions without respect to borders, languages, races, normal social limitations, etc. An independent, continuously engaged super-intellect which is not restrained by geographic or demographic constraints operative in otherwise natural relationships must be directing and controlling the growth and ascendance of Marx’s religio-philosophic governmental system. It uses people as a shell and facade but transcends the lives of those whose lives it usurps for its evil goal – world domination and reverence/dependence toward it.
    And it is SO Evil, no honor, no concern (except “the cause”), uses murder, genocide, starvation, torture, anything to attain its desires.

    If the U.S.A. goes under Obama’s spell and misappropriation of our legal system to fall into being controlled by this drive for world socialist power its the end of human freedom. The only possible way to avoid that takeover is a complete conversion to Biblical Christianity no denominations, no dogmas, rituals or traditions. God is the only bigger force and that is why every socialist/communist takeover has destroyed Bibles and Christians and Jews. Anything truely representing God or His Ideas is potentially greater and more powerful so it has to go. No other religions have been a concern to them.

    • Mike In MI

      Obama is nothing but a common conman, smoothie from the hood. He uses ACORN but look what he’s done to Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburg, all “his own” who he promised to take care of if they put him in power. He’s a con and every left leaning voter he conned is on line to get the shaft – along with us who knew who he fronts but couldn’t get you to see his true colour (hell-fire red).

      • Mike In MI

        The reason they are going after healthcare is not hard to figure out. A weak, sick populace is easy to manipulate because they will listen to anything hat promises to get rid of their pain. Getting rid of pain is easy – getting rid of the disease causing the pain requires some discipline. Staying rid of it requires wisdom. God is the only real source of wisdom and the strength to sustain a healthy mind.

        ‘We have not been given a spirit of fear but of power, and of love and of a sound (healthy) mind.”

    “The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

    • Mike In MI

      Borderline…

      Exactly right, pal. That “confederacy of fools” is who we have to show there is a better set of answers..any of them who will listen. They want someone to follow who can prove God’s answers work. To do that they need to see somebody who has some Godly power. That’s what the first century believers did and they turned The World on its collective, religious ear. God hasn’t changed. That’s why the denominations are so dead – dogmas (instead of doctrine), rituals (insteaad of right), man-made tradition(instead of Truth).

  • DaveH

    The Republicans need to quit nominating RINOs like Scott Brown who has already turned on the party. Write to the Republican National Committee and let them know that you will no longer vote for Republicans if they continue to put up Big Government Growthers.

    Better yet, give up on the idea that Republicans will ever shrink this Leviathan Government of ours and vote Libertarian:
    http://libertarianparty.org/platform

    • blackhat

      Not a big Brown fan either…I do not liek the idea of settling. But, I think that we should stop looking for the “home run” when it comes to taking back our country from progressive policies. The other side is good at generational warfare, conservatives and libertarians have got to do a better job looking to the future. My point is that although Brown is not perfect, he is a darn sight better than the old regime. So, incrementally we can make the change. The danger is that if we dismiss and cajole “better” we can lose focus. Noone should compromise their own core beliefs. But, even we have some disagreements. I do not have all the answers, but I do know that somewhat conservative is better than progressive. And, hopefully (fingers crossed) Mass voters will be able to find an even more conservative/libertarian candidate. Too much bickering can stop any movement in it’s tracks.

          I am with you…I was trying to be careful how I wrote that opinion. The gist of what I was trying to say could easily be missed. Of course, we have to take into account that a “one size fits all” solution to emplacing the “right” candidates just isn’t there. I just want the voters to realize that leftist ideas are insidiously slow in implementation.

    Does anyone have even have a slight idea as to when the anti-christ will be released from the 1000 year pit God chained him in to give mankind time to decide which road he wants to travel? Now it looks like he’s about to get a part of his pound of flesh. a few have died, some are not going to re-run for office. Is God maybe trying to save the honest or getting rid of some tares? God created this wonderful world for us and look what we have done and are still doing to it. I do not feel he will allow a few wannabees control his masterpiece and that’s why I feel the One World Government is doomed before it even gets started. I think it will unleash the anti-christ to do his worst tho and boy are we in for it. The just and the unjust. I wonder just how close to the end we are. The meek will inherit the earth and the Christians will get to live in the New Jeruselelum.

    It is not just Obama and the Democrats, they bemoan the 9000+ earmarks on legislation so far this year. If you think that at least 40% were not Republican, think again. We need to cut a wide swarth through both parties and elect a congress that will agree to term limits. Currently once they are there for two years they are crooks just like the ones that have been there 40+ years. Its not strictly the Democracts, the Republicans have been guilty on a smaller scale since Regan

    They are only doing what the two white founders of ACORN are telling them to do to (i.e., spread the progressive agenda throughout the American Society)!
    They (these two white guys from Chicago) even got this President elected, so don’t underestimate these two white guys out of Chicago from the 60′s saying to the Black community that they would make them the ruling class of America—if they followed this ACORN agenda! And—It seems to be working, doesn’t it?

    Wade Rathke is the founder of Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now (ACORN), and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). From 1970 to 2008, he served as the chief organizer for ACORN, until allegations of corruption forced him out of that role. [1].
    In 2008, Rathke was forced by ACORN’s board to resign after it found that he’d engaged in a cover-up of a nearly $1 million embezzlement of Acorn funds by his brother Dale, then the group’s chief financial officer…WIKPEDIA

    Gary Delgado , Ph. D., the Executive Director and founder of the Applied Research Center, is a nationally recognized researcher, lecturer and activist on issues of race and social justice. He has worked extensively in both the organizing and the academic communities. Gary was one of the initial organizers of ACORN, a lead organizer with the National Welfare Rights Organization, and cofounder and director of the Center for Third World Organizing (CTWO). http://www.arc.org/content/view/37/43/

    Common thread in all these activists and the President, all have never experience life in the real world, but going to college on someone else’s dime and worked for organizations paid by taxpayers money. Educated idoits and pretty much brain dead to real world work ethics!!! Like all of Congress and the beltway. Term limits and sent back to their districts and cann’t lobby for 20 years. But will never happen. Can not leave the Washington sewer.

    • JC

      There is evidence Obama was registered as a foreign exchange student here in the US. You know, like “most” Americans I suppose.

  • Bruce Dunavin

    Liked the words from Mike in MI. If we don’t get God back into our lives we’e all doomed. We have let a minority of people eliminate our relationship with the Lord. Even when the Republicans were in the White House and had majorities in the house and senate, we lost our ability to show respect to God. Our only hope is to elect honest, ethical God loving conservative people. If we can find any of them willing to run for office. Politics has gotten to be the ugliest and most corrupt institution ever in the history of this country. How could any decent person want any part of that? And unless we vote out all the incumbents and start over, we’ll never cure the cancer that is our government. To prevent it from coming back, we must institute term limits and elect only people who understand the limits the Constitution places on government. Most of the people in office are liars; they swore to uphold the Constitution and are not doing it. The cycle of humanity: from slavery to spiritual faith to great courage to liberty to abundance to selfishness to complacency to apathy to dependence back to slavery. It ain’t hard to figger out where we are and we are headed.

    Re: “Would President Obama’s phoney Hawaiian birth certificate be a misdemeanor?”

    It is NOT phoney. Only two guys who would not give their real names and whose expertise is in question said that it was forged. McCain did not, nor did Hillary, and no official body has said that it was forged or launched an investigation. No former government document expert ever said that it was forged.

    In contrast, the two top officials of the Department of Health of Hawaii have said that the facts on the published document are confirmed by the original document in the files. And, they are members of a Republican governor’s administration.

      ann1,
      thyere are RINOS in evfery walk in life!!! What year did they start using laser printers, by the way????

  • ann1

    Re: “What year did they start using laser printers, by the way????”

    It is not the original birth certificate. It is the current official birth certificate, which is the only one that Hawaii issues. It is a short-form birth certificate, printed on a laser printer, but it is accepted as proof of birth in the USA by the US State Department and the branches of the US military.

    As for the officials in Hawaii being RINOs, maybe they are. But would they actually lie about the original document in the files? Why should they? The penalty if they were found in a lie would be enormous.

    So, we have both the official birth certificate itself, which says that Obama was born in Hawaii (and by the way, it was and is not possible to get birth certificate that says “born in Hawaii” on it unless there is proof that the child was born in Hawaii). And, we have the confirmation of the two officials in Hawaii that the facts on the document are accurate.

    • L, USA

      Corruption!

    • Joe H.

      ann1,
      It’s not a “birth cirtificate” it’s a certificate of live birth!!! now I don’t know about you, but I have a birth certificate on me, my wife, and all three of my kids. The certificate of live birth was also issued to foreigners in hawaii to show parentage when they were born else where!!

  • http://www.enewsalerts.com Gene

    From the Congressional report Follow the Money: ACORN, SEIU and their Political Allies: “Since the first ACORN Report issued on July 23, 2009, the Oversight and Government Reform Committee staff has reviewed over 50,000 pages of documents”

    I believe that is where the 50,000 page figure comes from. Just wanted to clear that up. The Follow the Money report is 68 pages, which is still more than enough corruption for anybody.

  • ann1

    Re: “It’s not a “birth cirtificate” it’s a certificate of live birth!!!”

    In Hawaii, and in many states, a certificate of live birth (actually in Hawaii it is a Certification, but they mean the same thing) is the official birth certificate. The Certification is simply a more complicated name for Birth Certificate.

    The Certification IS a birth certificate–a government document showing details of birth–and it is the ONLY birth certificate that Hawaii issues. Hawaii no longer issues copies of the original birth certificate (http://www.starbulletin.com/columnists/kokualine/20090606_kokua_line.html).

    Let me stress, Hawaii no longer sends out copies of the original. It only sends out the new, laser-printed, short-form Certification.

    When a Hawaiian Certification of Live Birth says on it “born in Hawaii” (as Obama’s does), it is accepted as proof of birth in the USA by the US State Department and the branches of the US military.

    Re: “The certificate of live birth was also issued to foreigners in hawaii to show parentage when they were born else where!!”

    No. It is impossible to get in Hawaii a birth certificate that says “born in Hawaii” on it if there is no proof that the child was born in Hawaii.

    In addition to the document itself legally proving that Obama was born in Hawaii, the facts on it were confirmed twice by the two top officials of the Department of Health of Hawaii, both of whom are members of a Republican governor’s administration.

    The Wall Street Journal said:

    “Obama has already provided a legal birth certificate demonstrating that he was born in Hawaii. No one has produced any serious evidence to the contrary. Absent such evidence, it is unreasonable to deny that Obama has met the burden of proof. We know that he was born in Honolulu as surely as we know that Bill Clinton was born in Hope, Ark., or George W. Bush in New Haven, Conn.”

    • J C

      Why then was he funded as a foriegn exchange student in California under the name Barry Soetoro? And on who’s passport was he flying around Asia and the Middle East in twenties?
      The guy is a fraud, plain and simple.

    • Joe H.

      Ann1,
      You probably can’t get one that says that now without being born there but when he was born, it was entirely possible!!! The only “proof” they would have to show is a friend or neighbor state that what they say was true. Oh, I live on the far end of the island and I had a hard time of it with the birth so this was the soonest I could get here!!! Hell, how do you think about 30 to35 million illegals hide out and never get caught in every state in the continental US????

    • Dee

      Thanks Ann1. I disagree with virtually everything on this website but 1 thing I like and agree with is the information on alternative medicine. The information is awesome, top notch. It makes putting up with all the short memory, scared, fear baiters worth the read.
      The big pharmas are taking Americans as disease containment hostages. We need to do all we can to preserve natural spaces where natural plants, thus natural cures can thrive. Elsewise in very few years, we will have no land to even argue about.

    Million dollar question…What do “we the people” have to do in order to get limited 2 terms for all seats in both houses of congress?

    • Joe H.

      Ann,
      The problem with term limits is that if you DO get a good conservative in thats’s doing what you approve of you get rid of him in two years and take the chance that the new guy doesn’t do what brown did, promise the moon and give you a pain in the posterior!!!

  • Shawn of the Dead Democraps

    It’s funny the “House Oversight Committee” is only realizing this NOW in 2010. Conservative posters on the internet have been aware of the “abuses of ACORN” since 2007-8. Too bad the H.O.S. didn’t get their asses in gear and investigate ACORNS’ voter fraud before the election! We might have had a McRino in the W.H., instead of an A.C.O.R.N. lovin, C.A.I.R. lovin, muslum lovin, alien ursurper with no American birth certificate, and no U.S. citizenship thumbin his nose at the American citizens.

    Joe H. You’re absolutely right on the term limits. Same goes for people wanting to vote out all the incumbents. Why the hell would we want to vote out good conservative reps just because they’re incumbants? We/they can’t even manage to vote out the liberal socialists. What if we voted out a good rep. and ended up with some liberal that lied during the campaign, and once he was in there, we find out he’s a bleedin heart liberal. Gawd, I think sometimes people get so pissed off they just don’t think clearly.

    • Joe H.

      Shawn,
      you mean like Brown????

  • Shawn of the Dead Democraps

    If you’re talking about his first vote Joe, he’s more a middle of the road voter than most people think. He isn’t a died in the wool conservative, he was just way better than the liberal biatch that was running on the demcrappy ticket. Would you have rather had her AGAIN? ha ha ha … He’ll have hundreds of votes, and you will agree with a lot more of his, than you ever would of hers.
