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.
