Skip to comments.OPINION: Stimulus Bill Includes Massive Money for Anti-Gun Radicals
Posted on 02/11/2009 7:57:45 AM PST by WOBBLY BOB
The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), the far left anti-gun group under investigation for voter fraud, could be eligible to receive millions, if not billions of dollars from the economic bailout bill that passed out of the House of Representatives.
ACORN was an aggressive supporter of Barack Obama -- who had served as the group's legal counsel and even trained ACORN in "community organizing" -- in the presidential election. The Obama campaign even paid the group $800,000 for "voter turnout," the very activities that came under scrutiny by the FBI.
In October 2008, ACORN's Las Vegas office was raided by law enforcement agents investigating voter registration fraud. According to the Nevada Secretary of State's office, voter information submitted by the group included nonexistent names, false addresses, duplicate filings and even the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys.
In addition to turning in massive amounts of fraudulent voter registration forms leading up to the 2008 elections, ACORN is also involved in anti-Second Amendment activism. For instance, a New Jersey
ACORN chapter supported a one-gun-a-month ordinance in Jersey City, a law that was struck down last year by an appeals court for violating the State's preemption law.
This group should not be eligible to receive one penny of your tax money, yet ACORN has received over $28 million in taxpayer dollars in 2008 alone and over $53 million since 1994. Last year, some members of Congress were able to strip ACORN money from the home mortgage industry bailout bill, but it was reinserted into the current legislation.

I wonder if there is any stimulus for the Amish of Lancaster, Pa....,?
If you find it please post the text and the relevant page numbers. Thanks.
Thanks for posting this, I hope Freepers and conservatives wwill bring this bill into daylight before it’s too late.
I heard this morning on Fox that there is also language in this bill which will allow the Feds to dictate health care issues - This Porkulus bill will force everyone’s health care information to be stored electronically and would allow the Feds to have complete oversite on medical treatment for all Americans. Take away our guns and force us to ration our health care - The Dim’s are really looking out for the people./sarc
Make sure you google him with the Joyce Foundation; They even get fake think tanks to put out fake studies (along with press hype), then bring up legislation. Check the case in Chicago where this guy got his house broke into the second time, same perp, shot the guy and Obama wanted the guy thrown in jail. Also check out the transcripts on legislation re: juvenile murderers, that their ‘environment’ must be considered.
I am thinking not, but it would not surprise me....
Can anyone say "President for Life Obama?"
This is an outrage! Come and get my guns ACORN!....both barrels!
Another one the American people know nothing about.
Why can there not be a concerted effort to “infiltrate”
and legally take over ACORN?
I haven’t smelled that bad since extended field ops in the military many years ago.
Perhaps it's time to use the word "Politburo" when referring to Congress. I mean, what with the gulags being built, and all.
FYI, in case you didn’t hear last night:
Senate dropped E-Verify from stimulus bill
The Chicago Tribune’s John Kass looked deep into the stimulus bill and found something not too many others have noticed:
With all the hoopla over greasy pork being stuffed into President Barack Obama’s near trillion-dollar spending bill, it’s what is being cut out that’s receiving too little attention.
And once Americans realize it, they won’t be happy.
What’s been quietly stripped is a provision that would have required any businesses receiving federal stimulus cash to use an easy computer program called E-Verify to make sure that the jobs they generate go to American citizens or documented foreign workers, not illegal immigrants.
Democrats in the House voted for the E-Verify component. But when the great porkulus package reached the Senate, Democrats there dropped it.
Jeff Sessions (R-AL) wanted E-Verify in the stimulus bill, which led him to comment, “It’s another example of why people distrust Congress.”
BTW, Obama’s friend Luis Gutierrez D-Chicago has been pushing amnesty again under the radar.
Hispanic Congressional Caucus Starts Petition Urging Obama to Enact Amnesty
Obama’s getting on his buds to destoy this country by throwing every socialist plan over, under, through the radar to destroy this country. All this has been planned by someone holding his strings for a long time.
He tries to start off slightly hard but then shows his true colors.
In a few short days, Governor Charlie Crist (R) will appoint a new member to the Florida Supreme Court to fill the vacancy created by retiring Justice Charles Wells.
This appointment is absolutely critical to gun owners.
We need judges who respect all our freedoms, especially our Second Amendment freedoms. We need judges who will strictly uphold the Constitution, ALL of the Constitution and not legislate from the bench.
Of the four candidates under consideration for appointment, Judge Alan Lawson is the ONLY candidate we trust with our rights, our freedoms and our values. Judge Lawson is clearly the most qualified to serve on the Supreme Court.
Judge Alan Lawson is the only candidate we trust to uphold all of the Constitution. The appointment of Judge Alan Lawson is critical to the balance of the Court and justice in Florida.
Therefore, we need to let Governor Crist know that we only TRUST and SUPPORT JUDGE ALAN LAWSON for appointment to the Florida Supreme Court in the upcoming vacancy.
Please email Governor Crist IMMEDIATELY and urge him to appoint Judge Alan Lawson to the Florida Supreme Court.
Your action is critical.

Can anyone say “President for Life Obama?”
I can say it. I’ve said it many times. This is a coup. he never intends to leave that White House. He already said the Constitution is outdated.
