Guess who’s coming to dinner

The much ballyhooed Obama “jobs summit” is remarkable not only for who is invited to participate, but also who is being excluded.

Notable for being excluded from the gathering are representatives from the US Chamber of Commerce, and the National Federation of Independent Business, as well as anyone who has been publicly critical of the Administration’s sweeping plans to overhaul of the healthcare system. As reported in the Times, several analysts say the summit will be packed only with Obama supporters, and lacks any diversity of opinion.

The summit will however be attended by representatives from Big Labor, including the SEIU and ACORN-connected group “Change To Win.” SEIU and Change to Win were named in the Illinois Rod Blagojevich Scandal, and have extensive ties to ACORN.

ACORN has been completely exposed as a corrupt, criminal enterprise, worthy of RICO prosecution. President Obama’s continued support is indefensible.

Both SEIU and Change to Win have no place in a serious discussion on job creation. Their very existence, as well as their dependence upon the government teat makes them both incapable and uninterested in supporting policies which promote private sector growth.

The incompetence of the Obama Administration continues.

Update: Note to NY Times — Describing ACORN as a “beleaguered anti-poverty group” is a bit like describing al qaeda as a “controversial islamic rights group.” I suggest you check out Breitbart’s Big Government website and get a better handle on the situation.

Press Release

Update: Link to video
For Release Immediately:

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government will hold a press conference featuring James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, the two daring young journalists who, posing as a “pimp” and “prostitute,” exposed massive corruption within ACORN’s offices throughout the country. The Press Conference will be held at the National Press Club of Washington, DC on Wednesday, October 21, 2009 at 9:30 a.m.

After suing Breitbart.com, Mr. O’Keefe and Ms. Giles in Maryland over the release of the Baltimore tapes, ACORN has issued public statements denying any wrongdoing in its Philadelphia office and lying about what happened there. Mr. O’Keefe and Ms. Giles are now prepared to respond.

According to Mr. Breitbart, “ACORN representatives claim James and Hannah were kicked out of Philadelphia. They also said publicly that unlike Baltimore, Washington D.C., Brooklyn, San Bernardino and San Diego, James and Hannah never even mentioned prostitution before they were told to leave. James and Hannah will be joining me to set the record straight. After Wednesday, everyone will know what really happened in Philly.”

Sleepless Sunday

After seeing the drubbing that ACORN received, the folks at the National Endowment of the Arts are probably not sleeping very well tonight.

They are this week’s mission at Big Government.

Chrysler bondholders say threatened by White House

Update: Lauria on FNC

—–

Attorney Thomas Lauria, lead attorney for the Chrysler bondholders who have objected to the Obama restructuring plan, told ABC News that Obama car czar, Steve Rattner, suggested that officials of the Obama White House would embarrass the firm for opposing the Obama administration plan, which President Obama announced Thursday, and which requires creditors to accept roughly 29 cents on the dollar for an estimated $6.8 billion owed by Chrysler.

The White House has denied the allegation.

Lauria said the firm “was directly threatened by the White House and in essence compelled to withdraw its opposition to the deal under the threat that the full force of the White House press corps would destroy its reputation if it continued to fight. That’s how hard it is to stand on this side of the fence.”

Obama was highly critical of the bondholders as being “unwilling to sacrifice” in his remarks Thursday.

Lauria said the president saying he doesn’t stand with his clients “kind of sounds like ‘You’re fair game.’ In whatever sense. People are scared. They have gotten death threats. Some have been told people are going to come to their houses. God forbid if some nut did something, I’m just wondering how the president would feel.”

I can’t help but recall that these very same tactics were used by ACORN against AIG employees after Obama singled them out for scorn. Is ACORN behind this latest effort to intimidate the Chrysler bondholders?

Bus tour of AIG homes by ACORN front group

Brian Lockhart, writing at The Advocate

Just got a press release a little while ago that the Working Families Party has scheduled “a fun, goofy AIG protest” for Saturday that entails chartering a bus to take activists on tours of some employee homes in lower Fairfield County.

“Then we’ll be finishing the tour with a rally at the AIG Financial Products offices (in Wilton),” reads the release.

I don’t know. There’s something about this that just seems a bit … off to me, like it’s inviting potential threats or harm to these people.

Of course it is.

It is radical left-wing  populism run amok, and  ACORN is the worst of the worst.

Their modus operandi is to openly flout the rule of law, and then dare anyone who might try to hold them accountable with threats of loud, angry, potentially violent, and (of course) televised protests, all the while claiming the protected and privileged mantle of victimhood.

Balderdash.

ACORN is nothing more than a well-funded effort to strip away the Bill of Rights.

They must be stopped.  Yes we can.

The Obamafia gets “in their face”

Recently this website has witnessed Chicago machine-thuggery responding to obama’s exhortation to get in their face. Attempting not only to harass and intimidate, but also to deflect attention from the lack of any substantial record of the community-organizer CIC-wannabe, the Obamafia’s thuggery is truly disgusting.

But given the record of their candidate, it no wonder.

What little record exists is in direct opposition to the messiah-like claims of healing and cooperation.

Some facts about Obama’s record:

Source: 1998 IL State Legislative National Political Awareness Test Jul 2, 1998

Voted YES on continuing federal funds for declared “sanctuary cities”

Voted NO on declaring English as the official language of the US government.

Voted YES on allowing illegal aliens to participate in Social Security.

Voted YES on giving Guest Workers a path to citizenship.

Provide funding for social services for non-citizens. Obama co-sponsored providing funding for social services for non-citizens.

Rated 8% by USBC, indicating an open-border stance. Obama scores 8% by USBC on immigration issues
(U.S. Border Control, founded in 1988, is a non-profit, tax-exempt, citizen’s lobby. USBC is dedicated to ending illegal immigration by securing our nation’s borders and reforming our immigration policies. USBC [works with] Congressmen to stop amnesty; seal our borders against terrorism and illegal immigration; and, preserve our nation’s language, culture and American way of life for future generations)

On Abortion: He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called “too close to infanticide.”

Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed he would not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby” because of a crisis pregnancy

In 1972, Alinsky warned the Black Panthers and SDS that their tactics would fail, and that if they continued they would end up dead. He said that the only way to bring their brand of radical change to America was to organize the middle class, and empower community groups with massive infusions of cash.

Fast-forward to 2008:  ACORN is flush with cash (along with numerous investigations and allegations of monumental fraud), and middle class thugs are trying to suppress the free speech rights of anyone who would oppose the dear leader.

Be warned. This battle is far from over. In fact, the political Right is only now waking up to the threat. In the next two weeks, the tide will turn decisively in favor of traditional American values.

Have faith.

So many dots, so little time

Update: Welcome readers from Free Republic!

Stanley Kurtz, Melanie Phillips, Debbie Schlussel, David Freddoso, Dick Morris, Sean Hannity, and even the National Enquirer have all made great efforts to connect the dots on the shady past of Barack Obama. Each in their own way have exposed the amazing lack of judgment and questionable associations of this man who would be President.

As each revelation is met with the another disingenous denial, we on the Right have resigned ourselves to the fact that a tingling in the leg trumps journalistic ethics, and the Fourth Estate has evolved to become effete cheerleaders. It occurred to me the other night, while listening to a discussion of Obama’s mentor, Alan Colmes asked the question, “So, what’s wrong with Saul Alinsky?”

Alinsky’s alliances with Black separatists, radical pastors in the Church of Christ, the Nation of Islam, all have a very familiar ring with Obama, Jeremah Wright, and Louis Farrakhan. In fact, it was Alinsky’s battle against Eastman Kodak that laid the framework for tactics employed in the rise of Obama’s ACORN.

After endless months of frustration, we finally decided we’d try to embarrass Kodak outside its fortress of Rochester, and disrupt the annual stockholders’ convention in Flemington, New Jersey. Though we didn’t know it at the time — all we had in mind was a little troublemaking — this was the seed from which a vitally important tactic was to spring. I addressed the General Assembly of the Unitarian-Universalist Association and asked them for their proxies on whatever Kodak stock they held in order to gain entree to the stockholders’ meeting. The Unitarians voted to use the proxies for their entire Kodak stock to support FIGHT — 5620 shares valued at over $700,000.

The wire services carried the story and news of the incident rapidly spread across the country. Individuals began sending in their proxies, and other church groups indicated they were prepared to follow the Unitarians’ lead. By the purest accident, we’d stumbled onto a tactical gold mine. Politicians who saw major church denominations assigning us their proxies could envision them assigning us their votes as well; the church groups have vast constituencies in their congregations. Suddenly senators and representatives who hadn’t returned our phone calls were ringing up and lending a sympathetic ear to my request for a senatorial investigation of Kodak’s hiring practices. … We wanted to use the proxies as a means of social and political pressure against the megacorporations, and as a vehicle for exposing their hypocrisy and deceit. …

Proxies can become a springboard to other issues in organizing the middle class. Proxy participation on a large scale could ultimately mean the democratization of corporate America, and could result in the changing of these corporations’ overseas operations, which would precipitate important shifts in our foreign policy. There’s really no limit to the proxy potential. Pat Moynihan told me in Washington when he was still Nixon’s advisor that “proxies for people would mean revolution — they’ll never let you get away with it.” It will mean revolution, peaceful revolution, and we will get away with it in the years to come. source

Indeed. They are getting away with it now. Buried in the massive Wall Street bailout package was funding for radical community groups like Obama’s ACORN. Tactics of ruthless intimidation backed by massive funding has provided these militant utopians with frightening access to the levers of power. Alinsky’s warning was equaly ominous…

Every major revolutionary movement in history has gone through the same process of corruption, proceeding from virginal purity to seduction to decadence. Look at the Christian church as it evolved from the days of the martyrs to a giant holding company, or the way the Russian Revolution degenerated into a morass of bureaucracy and oppression as the new class of state managers replaced the feudal landowners as the reigning power elite. Look at our American Revolution; there wasn’t anybody more dedicated to the right of revolution than Sam Adams, leader of the Sons of Liberty, the radical wing of the revolution. But once we won the fight, you couldn’t find a worse dictatorial reactionary than Adams; he insisted that every single leader of Shays’ Rebellion be executed as a warning to the masses. He had the right to revolt, but nobody had the right to revolt against him. Take Gandhi, even; within ten months of India’s independence, he acquiesced in the law making passive resistance a felony, and he abandoned his nonviolent principles to support the military occupation of Kashmir. Subsequently, we’ve seen the same thing happen in Goa and Pakistan. Over and over again, the firebrand revolutionary freedom fighter is the first to destroy the rights and even the lives of the next generation of rebels.

We’ve already seen several instances of supression of 1st Amendment rights from team Obama, including Federal Lawsuits filed against critics, to organized suppression at radio station WGN. Reinstituting the so-called “fairness doctrine” has been talked about. He has even proposed for some type of civilian national armed forces. Can brown shirts be far behind?

And to answer Colmes, just read the last interview of alinsky (playboy 1972) and decide for yourself. (pdf will take a moment to load)

Obama the criminal

A couple of interesting articles for your reading pleasure. They should both cause a disturbance in the force, that is if they are not drowned out by the Lehman derivative settlements.

Speaking of which, I’m still wondering where our financial institutions are going to come up with the $350 Billion needed to settle Lehman. OK, I’m not really wondering. In fact, I think we will see the nationalization of the banking industry (at least temporarily) wihin a week’s time. After trillions of wealth have evaporated in the equity markets, and more bailout money yet to come, I’m thinking the Treasury royally screwed the pooch by letting Lehman fail. (Update 10:40 am: we’ve got a mark on Lehman, brings total close to $375 billion)  (update2 9:00 pmTimes UK puts it at $365 billion)

First up is from the Wash Times, “Obama tried to sway Iraqis on Bush deal”

At the same time the Bush administration was negotiating a still elusive agreement to keep the U.S. military in Iraq, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama tried to convince Iraqi leaders in private conversations that the president shouldn’t be allowed to enact the deal without congressional approval.

Mr. Obama’s conversations with the Iraqi leaders, confirmed to The Washington Times by his campaign aides, began just two weeks after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination in June and stirred controversy over the appropriateness of a White House candidate’s contacts with foreign governments while the sitting president is conducting a war.

And more on the Acorn connection. Seems like the Obamahdi “forgot” to report the $800,000 donation to the Fraudsters at Acorn…

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.

Crooked bastids. Lock ‘em up.
