Skip to comments.Barack Obama's Involvement With ACORN Unearthed, Missing Article Discovered
Posted on 10/12/2008 3:40:20 AM PDT by word_warrior_bob
While Barack Obama's connection with the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) has not gone entirely unreported, it has not been fully explained. Most media background pieces simply note Obama's involvement in a 1995 lawsuit on behalf of ACORN. Obama's own website, as well as most major media, fail to reveal the full depth and extent of his relationship with the organization.
Attempts to hide evidence of Obama's involvement with ACORN have included wiping the web clean of potentially damaging articles that had appeared, and were previously publicly accessible. Unfortunately, those behind the attempted cover-up failed to realize that in today's day and age, nothing disappears forever. There also exists another layer of the web, the hidden web, which is full of information included in proprietary scholarly databases where these very same "missing" articles can be easily uncovered.
Obama's campaign website states: Fact: Barack was never an ACORN trainer and never worked for ACORN in any other capacity.
Is that really a FACT, or just another lie?
Let's take a look at a quote from a 2004 article - Case Study: Chicago- The Barack Obama Campaign - written by Toni Foulkes, a Chicago ACORN Leader, which was published in the journal Social Policy. Did we mention that Social Policy recently pulled this particular article from their website, while leaving links to all other articles up?

There’s a picture of Obama with the ACORNS at the site.
After this article was found, Obama changed his lie on his web site. LIAR!!
Send this to EVERY Obama supporter you know. Ask them, if they care at all about what happened to the Hillary supporters during the primary!
Clinton Supporters Share Evidence For RICO Case Against Obama:
There is a follow up story at the link at the bottom of the story titled:
Obama Campaign Involved In More Cover-Ups In ACORN Scandal.
I am glad to see a notable paper is finally reporting this.
FReepers unearthed this info a couple of weeks ago.
Am posting this revise into my article on Greed which can be printed on one 8 X 11 sized sheet of paper and can be used as a pass around.http://www.theusmat.com/
We can be nice about their attempts to rule us (and lose like every other country that tried to be "nice" about it) or we can fight and destroy them before they destroy us.
Make no mistake about it, it's one or the other.
They are already pronouncing those on the right that get angry and want to fight as "out of control", "mob-like", etc. While they work to publicly destroy Palin and say simply awful and untrue things about her, while they commit voter fraud on a huge scale, etc.
People, this is the same tactic they have always used.
Their goal is to take your confidence -- to confuse your natural self-defense mechanism. They are using your ethics against you. There is nothing unethical about self-defense! There is nothing wrong with vigorously defending your freedom.
Unfortunately, even some "leaders" on the right are buying into it and making bizarre statements about how we should not be so angry, and not put up a real fight.
Folks, the left will take your "high-road" and shove it right up your a** -- don't buy into this.
If you "turn the other cheek" they will rip it off. They are relentless--you are a sitting duck if you don't actively work against their onslaught.
We either fight or lose to the left.
I put the exact words in the search and it didn’t come up.
Hey, multiple links are just more exposure of the truth, and that's a good thing.
Sarah Palin said that she needs OUR help to get the MSM to report on the REAL issues. Shell fight them, but she said she cant do it alone. The article above is one of those issues! They need to know that WE know about it. Please help Sarah take on the MSM by sending a link to this article to the media contacts below:

obama is arguing semantics, OBAMA DID WORK WITH PROJECT VOTE WHICH IS OWNED BY ACORN.
I think the wallstreet journal is our best bet. Its at the crossroads of being an elite member of the WSJ while not being held hostage by liberal groupthink. Some of this stuff has to come out before election day and quicklY!
acorn was not part of project vote
project vote WAS PART of acorn
and Bill Clinton did not have sex, only monica had sex...
you do realize the WSJ is more left wing than the NYT in its news division.
the editorial page is unique for the dinosaur media, the news division is typical left wing NYC liberalism.
When they say he never worked for ACORN in any other capacity - LIE
Working AS THEIR ATTORNEY is a capacity. LIAR!!
The following article at http://sweetness-light.com/archive/obama-claims-he-never-worked-for-acorn is funny.
Money quote: “By the way, Citizens Services/Consulting is Project Votes accountants. Coincidentally, they also keep the books for ACORN. Lest we forget, it was recently uncovered that the Obama campaign paid $832,598 to Citizens Services, Inc.)
And again, note that according to their Forms 990 ACORN and Project Vote (and Citizens Services) once again share the same address:
ACORN and Project Vote even use the same phone number.
But, no, they are clearly two completely different entities. Just ask Obama.”
“The left in the US is no different than the left anywhere else. We can be nice about their attempts to rule us (and lose like every other country that tried to be ‘nice’ about it) or we can fight and destroy them before they destroy us . . . We either fight or lose to the left.”
Your whole comment (not just what excerpted here) is spot on. This is a fight for the heart and soul of America, and the left is very serious about winning it. We should be at least as serious in stopping it.
I think Obama, et al, are going to find Americans are not nearly so susceptible to the “racism” slur as they have been in the past, much to their chagrin. We have grown much thicker skins thanks to the over use of the term. The Dem candidate has Sooooo many serious flaws, I don't think most folks even remember he's black!
I watched a good bit of those videos. Stunning. It was much worse than I thought.
Several Newspapers have been coming out with the fraud stories etc lately
Think they are worried
Is this a trend
How do we fight when our nominee says “stand up and fight with me” one minute and “calm down and be nice to Mr. Obama” the next minute?
Barack Obama is
He helped ACORN use intimidation techniques
He intimidated Joe Lieberman on the floor of the Senate, after cornering him.
*at Heartland Democratic Presidential Forum 12/07
“How do we fight when our nominee says stand up and fight with me one minute and calm down and be nice to Mr. Obama the next minute?”
Possibly, especially because with everything coming to light, you understand what the alternative will do to this great nation.
McCain holds all the cards, and he’s been keeping them close, for now. It’s been drip, drip, drip, but the flood of info that is known about obama is coming, and McCain has every intention of pulverizing the fake messiah.
If you have any doubts, just sit back and watch. It’s coming.
Have you sent this to major media outlets (sans OPM!)? This is HUGE news!!! Incidentally, I just checked GOOGLE for cached page and it isn’t there. Co-conspirators?? Feel free to reply personally as I will help out on this anyway I can. This needs to be done NOW as this will be in the news cycle this week then probably gone until after the election. Thanks!
This is not about fighting FOR McCain -- I know this goes against everything you are used to -- this is about fighting FOR the America that you know and love.
Forget McCain, forget McCain, forget McCain.
We have to fight FOR the country and life we love and in doing so deliver a demoralizing defeat to the hard-left that is the Obama campaign. Obama brings with him a few thousand people if he wins -- and all of them despise your ideals! Their values, in most cases, are diametrically opposed to yours.
'How do we fight when our nominee says stand up and fight with me one minute and calm down and be nice to Mr. Obama the next minute?'
If the guy out in front falters then we pick him up and continue the charge!
There are literally millions of people working to demoralize little-ol'-you right now--millions!
Please let this sink in, let it simmer to a boil and join us in this fight FOR America!
No one is coming -- except you and I!
Imagine how afraid and alone our ancestors felt in facing the mightiest military on the planet -- the British! Just imagine how many of them were oh, so tempted to lie down in a fetal position to avoid the King's murderous rampage -- they were some of the bravest people to have EVER existed.
Now, it is our turn.
Ah, but they aren't marching over the hill to line up and fire on you, no, no, no. The new war happens with visual and auditory messages, propaganda -- we have to use our minds more nowadays.
In this war you are surrounded by the voices, images and message of the enemy. They materialize in front of you with angelic smiles and feigned character. How can they be so bad? They seem nice enough.
One thing has not changed over the centuries: It's far wiser to judge a man by his deeds and the company he keeps than by the promises he makes.
You are righteous. A mere glance back through history will reveal the great men and women that shared your ideals. These great American men and women are the company you keep!
Don't let the bastards take the confidence that was earned long ago and is your rightful inheritance as an American.
The confidence arrived at through the knowledge that you will not lean upon your fellow man and you will not be leaned upon by force -- at the end of a gun!
Socialism and freedom CANNOT COEXIST!
Yes, it's that important. It is indeed fundamental to our future as a free people.
Obama is the tip of the tyrants' sword. He is the foot-in-the-door. The would-be beginning of the end of life as we know it in America.
You may not see red coats but their intellectual heirs are moving en masse against your very freedom!
They don't deserve our great country and we don't deserve their rule!
Fight, Americans, fight them!
I am fully on board.
Looking forward to the coming weeks.
Morris (I know) predicted this rise in the polls for 0.
We can still win this.
The key is to get everyone to the polls and VOTE!!
Ignore the poll numbers! They are slanted.
Turn out is the key.
This is for the Republic!
