Tag: Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now

It gets better!

As if what I hat told you in this post about how the commies where doubling down on the very policies that caused the housing and lending crisis wasn’t enough, now I find out that our DOJ is taking a large chunk of that $335 million fine that government is punishing Bank of America with for not following along with their social engineering plans, and giving it to connected lefty organizations:

The untold story of the Obama Administration’s widely reported, $335 million discrimination settlement with Countrywide Financial Corporation is that, under a secret Justice Department program, a chunk of the money won’t go to the “victims” but rather leftist groups not connected to the lawsuit.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) will determine which “qualified organizations” get leftover settlement cash and Democrat-tied groups like the scandal-plagued Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) and the open-borders National Council of La Raza (NCLR) stand to get large sums based on the hastily arranged deal which got court approval in just a few days.

The damned mafia is less criminal in its endevours than these crooks. They have no shame. They of course expect the LSM not to report this either, or spin it to make them look good. Of course, the problem is with us dumb “Fox News” types for not figuring out this is all good stuff. You think this money will help these connected organizations like ACORN, or whatever they call themselves these days, buy or steal some votes for them? The end justifies the means, and the devil is in the details. By this point it should be obvious that we would get a fairer shake from scumbags like Putin than we do from these demcorats.

Like Herpes…

It looks like one of the DNC tax payer subsidized propaganda arms, even after being defunded, simply will not go away. Who am I talking about? Well the organization previously know as ACORN. Seems they are in the news again and not surprisingly, they are part & parcel of the OWS protests.

Officials with the revamped ACORN office in New York — operating as New York Communities for Change — have fired staff, shredded reams of documents and told workers to blame disgruntled ex-employees for leaking information in an effort to explain away a FoxNews.com report last week on the group’s involvement in Occupy Wall Street protests, according to sources.

NYCC also is installing surveillance cameras and recording devices at its Brooklyn offices, removing or packing away supplies bearing the name ACORN and handing out photos of Fox News staff with a stern warning not to talk to the media, the sources said.

“They’re doing serious damage control right now,” said an NYCC source.

NYCC Executive Director Jon Kest has been calling a series of emergency meetings to discuss last week’s report—and taking extreme measures to identify the sources in their office and to prevent further damage, a source within NYCC told FoxNews.com.

Two staffers were fired after NYCC officials suspected them as the source of the leaks, a source told FoxNews.com. “One was fired the day the story came out, the other was fired on Friday. (NYCC senior staff) told everyone that they were fired because they talked to you,” a source said.

NYCC spokesman Scott Levenson denied that anyone was fired for talking to the press.

FoxNews.com’s report identified NYCC as a key organizing force behind the Occupy Wall Street protests. Sources within the group also told FoxNews.com NYCC was hiring people to carry signs and join the protests. NYCC — a nonprofit organization run almost entirely by former ACORN officials and employees –did not reply for comment prior to the publication of the initial article, but later posted a statement on its website dismissing the article and denying that it pays protesters.

What? We find out that whatever ACORN now calls itself it is again shilling for the left, with tax payer money involved again, directly or indirectly, I am certain, and that they retaliate against the people that blew the whistle on them? Chicago style, baby! Don’t be too harsh on “The organization formerly called ACRON”, though isn’t alone here. It seems like another DNC financial/propaganda machine is at it too. OWS is about as grassroots and about the people as Johnson’s Gulf of Tonkin incident was legit.

And it’s not a coincidence that the only people reporting on this – that’s why both links come from there – are those that are NOT members of the usual LSM, which I should add is another branch of the democrat party propaganda machine, and the blogosphere. An unholy trinity right there – the LSM, unions, and community organizations – if you will allow the comparison. In the mean time the leftosphere is giving air time to more lies. 15%? Fuck Nancy, what are you smoking and is it medicinal and not illegal? Even the CBO, which I remind you is played by these crooks in the democrat party like a fucking fiddle, at best says, at best I repeat, that it would have been 10%. And I disagree vehemently with their assertion and actually believe that it would have been less than that, and more importantly, that we would have seen an economic recovery by now if these crooks hadn’t wasted trillions larding the pockets of their friends and their campaign coffers.

On another note, watch the LSM make a huge deal about nothing. Remember back when they used to tell us 4% unemployment was a disaster? Heh! Yeah, bullshit from the left is like Herpes. it never goes away.
