Obama budget ceiling manufactured crisis, Americans pay attention!, Economy Jobs Rezko Birth Certificate Communist Party ACORN
“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells and millions of concerned Americans
“As the crisis develops, it will be important to use the mass media to inform the broader llberal community about the inefficiencies and injustices of welfare. For example, the system will not be able to process many new applicants because of cumbersome and often unconstitutional investigatory procedures (which cost 20c for every dollar disbursed). As delays mount, so should the public demand that a simplified affidavit supplant these procedures, so that the
poor may certify to their condition. If the system reacts by making the proof of eligibility more difficult, the demand should be made that the Department of Health, Education and Welfare dispatch “eligibility registrars” to enforce federal statutes governing local programs. And throughout the crisis, the mass media should be used to advance arguments for a new federal income distribution program.”…Richard Cloward and Frances Piven
The so called budget crisis, debt ceiling negotiations, were custom made and one could say custom designed by Obama, et al. Never let a good crisis go to waste. The budget is a serious matter. We must take it seriously. However, aside from the socialist, radical tactics of the Obama camp, we still have someone occupying the White House, at the controls of the most powerful office on the planet.
How has the budget crisis benefited Obama?
- Obama has used this as a pulpit to lie to the American people about his opposition and what he has done for the economy.
- Focus is taken off his fraudulent birth certificate.
- Focus is taken off his natural born citizen deficiency.
- Focus is taken off of the financial markets.
- Focus is taken off the jobs reports.
- And….a two for one for Obama. More budget spending for ACORN affiliated groups that few notice because of the diversions.
I am relieved that some are paying attention to the radicals being funded and enabled by the Obama camp.
From Fox News July 06, 2011.
“A conservative watchdog group is accusing President Obama of violating a funding ban that he signed into law that prohibits the flow of federal money to the now-defunct community activist group ACORN or any of its affiliates.
Judicial Watch says that in March, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) issued nearly $80,000 in grants to Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA), which the groups says is an offshoot of ACORN.
“This was an ACORN affiliate at the time of the funding ban and it has not changed in sum or substance since then,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News in an interview. “The funding ban was violated and the administration is calling these new entities. It just doesn’t pass the laugh test.”
But Alyson Chadwick, a spokeswoman for AHCOA, denied any connection to ACORN.
“We are not an affiliate, subsidiary or ally of ACORN,” she told FoxNews.com. “Both the GAO and HUD’s General Counsel have done exhaustive work and come to the same conclusion.”"
“Judicial Watch senior investigator Sean Dunagan told Fox News that the GAO ruling used “strained logic.”
The group says the government’s website listing federal expenditures identifies the organization receiving the $79,810 grant as “ACORN Housing Corporation Inc.” and lists ACORN’s New Orleans address.
The group also says that ACHOA maintains the same board of directors, executive director and offices as ACORN Housing.
The group also notes that a HUD general counsel report from September 2010 says that ACORN Housing is “now operating as Affordable Housing Centers of America” and has misappropriated funds from a $3.2 million federal grant.
Although Dunagan admits no laws were broken, he says the bigger issue is the politicization at GAO.
The once powerful ACORN fell on hard times after a series of undercover videos showed its employees offering tax advice to a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute, tarnishing the group’s reputation and crippling its source of funding.
Congress passed and Obama signed into law the Defund ACORN Act in 2009 that yanked the organization’s federal funding. After private donors held back cash, the group shut down in April 2010.
“Certainly the intent of Congress was not to allow ACORN to change its name and get money,” Fitton said.”
And just in case you are wondering. I am still reporting on Obama’s ghosts of Christmas past. That includes Blagojevich, Rezko, Cellini and Daniel Frawley.
