The $1,300 mission to fell ACORN

September 18th, 2009 . by TexasFred

The $1,300 mission to fell ACORN

The proposition was outrageous, outlandish, and right up James E. O’Keefe III’s alley. Hannah Giles was on the phone from the District, and she was asking him to dress like her pimp, walk into the offices of the ACORN community activist group, openly admit to wanting to buy a house to run as a brothel, and see what happened.

It was serendipity, O’Keefe said Thursday. On that day in May, he was still burning mad after watching a YouTube video of Acorn workers breaking padlocks off foreclosed homes and barging in. “I was upset,” he said.

O’Keefe, 25, packed his grandfather’s old wide-brimmed derby hat from his swing-dancing days, his grandmother’s ratty chinchilla shoulder throw, and a cane he bought at a dollar store, then drove from his parents’ home in northern New Jersey to the District to execute the idea with Giles, 20.

What happened next was a scandal that has shaken ACORN to its core. O’Keefe and Giles secretly videoed ACORN workers in the District, Brooklyn and Baltimore as they coached the secret filmmakers on how to evade taxes and misrepresent the nature of their business enterprise to get into a home.

The $1,300 mission to fell ACORN

In the immortal words of The *A* Team leader, John ‘Hannibal’ Smith, I love it when a plan comes together!

FORT WORTH – ACORN offices across Texas are temporarily halting the bulk of their work, following the lead of other chapters nationwide, as ACORN re-trains workers and makes sure proper policies and procedures are in place to avoid any improper activity.
(SNIP)
State Rep. Lon Burnam, D-Fort Worth, also has worked with ACORN, and once attended a national convention of the group. He praised local workers but said he’s “disappointed and sad” at the national controversy.

“The right-wingers are out to kill a progressive, populist, economic justice organization,” he said. SOURCE

“The right-wingers are out to kill a racist, socialist, taxpayer dollar sucking, criminal organization,? he said.

There, I fixed it!! :P

ACORN, and it’s inherent EVIL, are rapidly being brought down. State, federal officials cut off money to ACORN, the majority of Americans, for ALL sides of the political spectrum, are seeing ACORN for exactly what it is and are coming to their senses.

There’s only one fly in the ointment right now. Will Barack Hussein Obama, the man who would not be POTUS were it not FOR the support he received from ACORN, sign the legislation to defund these crooks?

That is yet to be seen!

Sen. Kay *Bailout* Hutchison bails out on defunding ACORN

Sen. Kay *Bailout* Hutchison bails out on defunding ACORN

I recently found this great blog, The Right Side of Austin and I am using their story on this. Kay *Bailout* Hutchison is a traitor to ALL THINGS TEXAS, and all that we stand for.

She bailed out on the vote to defund ACORN. You would think she could take the time to make a stand, but here’s the truth, KBH had best be preparing herself for retirement, it’s coming soon too!


Our senior Senator from Texas decided not to vote against the continued taxpayer funding of ACORN. And now she wants to come to Texas and run the state?? This comes after the Senator voted FOR the bailout.

“Less than one week after the Senate returned to work, Senator Hutchison skipped a key vote to prevent ACORN from receiving taxpayer funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This is yet another example of Senator Hutchison failing to protect the taxpayers of Texas. The Senator made time to vote for a $700 billion bailout for Wall Street, but when it came time to prevent tax dollars from going to a liberal activist group, she was nowhere to be found.? Full Statement from the Perry Campaign here.

Kay *Bailout* Hutchison is a TRAITOR to Texas and all that Texas stands for. Hutchison is a RINO Washington insider. She has NO idea what the people of Texas are up against.

Case in point; Hutchison was on board with the Bush Amnesty Plan and she was pushing the Immigrant Dream Act for all it was worth SOURCE, all the while opposing border fences.

Kay Bailey Hutchison CLAIMS to be Conservative Republicans, that is a bald, open faced LIE. She is, at best, a RINO of the 1st order.

Hutchison is an AMNESTY supporter and has serious issues with border security, actually with having border security that is. She made that abundantly clear some time back, Hutchison has fought long and hard to stop a border fence from being built on the U.S. side of the Mexican border, Hutchison on defensive over border fence and Hutchison was an ardent supporter of the Immigrant Dream Act, another *back door* attempt at amnesty for ILLEGALS, Immigrant ‘Dream’ Act Fails Key Senate Vote.

Hutchison has outlived her usefulness as a Senator and she is NOT needed as our Texas Governor!

The Pied Piper of Washington DC

May 13th, 2009 . by TexasFred

The Pied Piper of Washington DC

There was a Pied Piper who said, “We live in the greatest country in the world. Come help me change it!?

*And the people said, “Change is good!?

Then he said, “We are going to tax the rich fat-cats,?…

*And the people said “Sock it to them!? and “redistribute their wealth.?

And then he said, “Redistribution of wealth is good for everybody?

*And Joe the plumber said, “are you kidding me?? And Joe’s personal records were hacked and publicized.

*And one lone reporter asked, “Isn’t that Marxist policy?? And she was banished from the kingdom!

Then someone asked, “With no foreign relations experience, how will you deal with radical terrorists?? And the Pied Piper said, “Simple. I’ll sit down and talk with them and show them how nice we really are and they’ll forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!?

Then the Pied Piper said, “I’ll give 95% of you lower taxes.?

*And one, lone voice said, “But 40% of us don’t pay ANY taxes.?

So the Pied Piper said, “Then I’ll give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!?

*And the people said, “Show me the money!?

Then the Pied Piper said, “I’ll tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!?

*And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed.

And he said, “I’ll mandate employer-funded health care for EVERY worker and raise the minimum wage.?

*And the people said, “Gimme some of that!?

Then he said, “I’ll penalize employers who ship jobs overseas.?

*And the people said, “Where’s my rebate check??

Then the Pied Piper actually said, “I’ll bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!?

*And the people said, “Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don’t care for that part about higher electric rates.?

So the Pied Piper said, “Not to worry. If your rebate isn’t enough to cover your expenses, we’ll bail you out. Just sign up with ACORN and your troubles are over!? Then he said, “Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let’s grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing.?

*And the people said, “Ole`! Bravo!? And they made him King!

And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy slowed even further. Then the Pied Piper said, “I am the Messiah and I’m here to save you! We’ll just print more money so everyone will have enough!? But our foreign trading partners said, “Wait a minute. Your dollar isn’t worth what it was. You’ll have to pay more.?

*And the people said, “Wait a minute. That’s not fair!?

And the world said, “Neither are these idiotic programs you’ve embraced. You’ve become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you’ll play by our rules!?

*And the people said, “What have we done?? But it was too late.

If you think this is a fairy tale, open your eyes and ears. It’s happening RIGHT NOW! And did you know the president’s name is really an acronym…

One Big Ass Mistake America
