Posted on 10/07/2009 8:37:36 AM PDT by khnyny
ACORN wants people to register to vote as long as theyre Democrats. Republican registrations go into the trash.
Here is a first-hand account of how it happens. In February 2008, Fathiyyah Muhammad of Jacksonville, Florida, heard that ACORN was paying people three dollars for each voter they could register. ACORN paid her three dollars for each voter she registered, but Fatiyyah Muhammad says that the group threw out her votes and fired her when she brought them registrations of Republican voters.
Fathiyyah Muhammad voted for Obama. Im a Republican, she says, and this was the first time that I voted for a Democrat since JFK
. Im one of those rare birds, a black conservative Republican, and actually this is the black conservative capital of the country, Jacksonville, Florida. She is an entrepreneur and a great American: she makes custom caps for her businesses Bilals Custom Caps and Only in America. She and her James have made custom caps for politicians, sports heroes, musicians, and others. America, she says, is the place you can live your dreams if you work at it. Shes a can-do woman with a great American spirit, and when she saw what was breaking in the news about ACORN, she came forward; I interviewed her Monday morning.

I’ll never believe that 0 carried North Carolina and Virginia.
I do. They were blinded by color and more excited about race than principles. They're singing a different tune, now. Me, on the other hand, I'm color blind. I held my nose and voted for McCain.
I know of one. He is a professional that likes to hunt and fish.
What!!! You mean, after all these years, it was a moose???
I am struck dumb!!!
Lot’s here in Mobile, Alabama!
With our voting system corrupted by ACORN and the Dems we have no option to remove these crooks and save our Country.
Wonder how they will write the history of our demise?
They caught them buying votes with cigarettes,booze and food. even o-bozo shirts to the homeless in Mil-babwe.It was all over the news, but the “law” just laughed it off.
Republicans have been "reaching out" to African-Americans, and people have been responding--often because it is easier for them to rise in the GOP and for the perks.
When 2008 came along almost all turned around and voted for Obama.
That is why shallow partisan recruitment efforts are not what we should be about. Convincing people of conservative values--that's really our job.
And it seems that they have succeeded. Why would anyone have thought that ACORN would do other than trash Republican voter registrations?
Yes. I get annoyed when the Dems set up tables in my neighborhood to register voters and the tables are covered with Dem literature and buttons. I usually tell them it is not right to do that but I get ignored. I would be leery of registering as a Republican at one of those tables.
And those who are proud of themselves for going on a registration drive and registering 20 Republicans and 80 Democrats should also think again. I finally got someone pretty high up in the party to say that unless you are getting four-to-one Republicans, it's not worth the effort.
I dont know a single black conservative who voted for Obama.
>> Larry Elder
The pravda media spread that myth. It was a selective redaction during the scampaign of 2008. He said something like “it’d be interesting to see a black man become president but...” he then went on to itemize the ideological stances that made Obama WRONG WRONG WRONG.
These are 2 articles on the eve of the election that spelled out the case for ALL voters to vote against Obama.

“Now I’m truly scared.”
A friend wrote this after she watched Fox News’ Glenn Beck’s series on the “alarming number of far-left radicals the President is surrounded by” — referring to some of the President’s special advisers and “czars.” President Barack Obama, my friend tells me, is “a true left-winger.”
So, now she knows.

“Stupid Black Men” - A Hot New Book By Conservative Black American Larry Elder
Posted on Tuesday, May 06, 2008
Book Review: “Stupid Black Men”
In his book “Stupid Black Men: How to Play the Race Card—and Lose,” Larry Elder provides a clear and compelling analysis, showing that the worst enemies of black Americans are self-appointed “black leaders” and their white liberal allies who use race-baiting as a sinister tool to further their socialist agenda...
And to think that Barack Hussein Obama addressed the muslim world in Egypt to tell them that Republicans in Florida are corrupt and stole the 2000 election because Bush’s brother was in cahoots.
Lying scumbag president. He will NOT publicly speak on this matter of voter disenfransiment in Florida by DNC Brownshirts.
“ACORN wants people to register to vote as long as theyre Democrats.
Republican registrations go into the trash.”
If there’s not a prosecutable Federal (and state) crime here...
there OUGHTA’ BE!!!
The Senate majority of 60, which is due to Al Franken’s fake win, was bought and paid for by ACORN, moveon.org., SEIU and others. As long as these criminal organizations are allowed to have anything to do with our elections, there will never be another fair election in this country.
What’s ironic is that the DNC was encouraging Democrats to vote in the Republican primaries in Michigan and Floriduh since they weren’t going to acknowledge the results of the Democrat presidential primaries in those states (and besides, they could muck about and boost the McCainiac by crossing over for the day).
another nail in ACORN’s coffin? Doubtful. This story won’t get told.
RICO, Special Prosecutor, IRS audits, dismantling of all ACORN related organizations, etc. are in order. Imho, if this kind of criminal activity is permitted by this, or any administration, the US will descend very quickly into a kind of third world banana republic. It will be like Venezuela and Cuba where those that can leave, will.
100% right. I never thought I would leave my country forever but we are seriously considering making our vacation home permanent unless things change here. I won’t live in a Marxist country run by moveon.org, ACORN, SEIU, etc.
Go back and watch the O’Keefe/Giles videos. ACORN employees admit on tape that while they claim to be non-partisan, they really aren’t.
Not to me. I expect there are hundreds of others that still work for ACORN that would tell the same story if they were honest.
The Republican party is doomed until we get rid of the traitor, Steele. There has to be a reason the DUmmies and Kos kids love him.
Ill never believe that 0 carried North Carolina and Virginia.
He didn’t. ACORN carried it for him.
Thanks, for straightening me out. LOL
No problem, this site can be educational to correct often misreported events. Go forth and inform others.
But its okay to throw out Republican Registrations because we all know that ALL republicans are either racists or uncle toms to their own groups.
Bertha Lewis says that ACORN has nothing to do with voter registrations !!!!
Tell a lie big enough and often enough, and people will believe it.
I don't know about that. John McCain sometimes pretends to be a conservative and often calls himself one. It wouldn't surprise me if John McCain voted for Obama ... it looked like he wanted Obama to win.
The courts stacked with obami’s minions?
I thought the same. Why is a successful entrepeneur interested in a paltry 3 bucks? As far as ACORN throwing out Republican votes, I expect criminal activity from criminals.
JC Watts mean anything to you?
The vote for 0bama was strictly tribal.
There are few that escaped this tribalism. I have a friend at church that is one of those that escaped. He constantly sends me stuff critical of Bamma, as he calls him.
Country voter rolls need serious purging.
Dead people. felons, people who have moved permanently, people who are in advanced stages of Alzheimer’s, etc need to be removed.
I would like to see a demand for each and every county in the USA to require voters to register all over again—in person—in the offices of the Registrar of Voters in the county offices.
Have them open on Saturdays from now until Oct 1 of 2010.
give Mondays off to the county employees who have to man the counters on Saturdays.
This is actually common practice, and not limited to ACORN. Those card-table registration volunteers you see outside your neighborhood grocery store every now and then? They are under no obligation to actually turn in your registration forms. They can turn in the ones they want and trash the rest. And they do.
I learned this years ago when living in Berkeley. It’s a sport. If you want to ensure your registration is legitimate, do the deed through your local registrar, not any private organization or volunteer unless you know them well.
EXCERPT The undersigned State Board delegates and National Board members of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) file this criminal complaint againstACORN Staff and Executive Board members for fraud, embezzlement, conspiracy and concealment, and criminal civil rights violations. Additionally, since there has already been thepublic admission that a felony was committed, it is also possible that other federal offenses have also been committed including but not limited to;
Title 18 U.S.C. §1341, Mail Fraud,
18 U.S.C.§1001, Presenting a False Document to the an Agent of the United States Government;
18 U.S.C.§1027 False statements and concealment of facts in relation to documents required by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 and other possible offenses including civiland/or criminal RICO violations.
18 U.S.C. §§1961-68 (RICO Act)18 U.S.C. §1001 (False Statementsto Agents of the U.S. Government),
18 U.S.C. §1341 (Mail Fraud),18 U.S.C. §1027 (ERISAViolations), and,
18 U.S.C. §241(Conspiracy Against Civil Rights).
Finally, the complainants contend that full investigations of a RICO conspiracy under 18U.S.C. §1962(c) are warranted because they assert that (1) the defendant persons (2) were employed by or associated with an enterprise (3) that engaged in or affected interstate commerce and that (4) the defendant persons operated or managed the enterprise (5) through a pattern (6) of racketeering activity, and (7) the complaints were injured in its business or property by reason of the pattern of racketeering activity. Thus, the complainants feel that a formal RICO investigation is also warranted.
In a shocking report, Elizabeth Kingsley, who is an ACORN attorney, expressed concerns that ACORN and Project Vote may have violated federal laws because of how they interacted. Project Vote, the Kingsley report says, hires ACORN to perform voter registration drives.. Project Vote is a 501(c)(3) federally tax-exempt organization, which means that it is subject to prohibitions on partisan political activity.
ACORN, however, is not subject to those same restrictions, because itis not federally tax exempt. Michael Slater, executive director of Project Vote, told the New York Times that,Project Vote and Acorn have a written agreement that specifies that all work is nonpartisan.
Kingsley, however, claims that the way records were kept made it impossible for her to tellwhether or not PV's money had, at the end of the day, been used for strictly non-partisan purposes. Until 2007, Project Vote's board was exclusively composed of ACORN staff. ?Kingsley said about this, "As a result, we may not be able to prove that 501(c) 3 resources are not being directed to specific regions based on impermissible partisanconsiderations."?Kingsley also claims that governance issues plagued the organizations, writing, "Board meetings are not held, or if they are, minutes are not kept, or if minutes are kept, theynever make it into the files.
"Several Project Vote board members claim that they were unaware that they served on Project Vote's board:? George Hampton, listed as a board member on federal tax filings from 1994-2006, said that he had never heard of Project Vote.? Cleo Mata, listed as a board member on tax forms from 1997 to 2006, also said she was not aware she was on the Project Vote board. Although ACORN represents itself as separate from its related or associated entities;these companies are in reality all ACORN. The entities share common goals, management,control, locations, financial management and interlocking directors and staff. (In a presentation to ACORN Funders, Steve Kest describes the Association or ACORN Family of as one corporation.)

Liberal Democrats have to cheat to win because they lack the votes to be elected; the majority of legitimate voters reject them.
Obama would have lost in an honest election, and had elections been reasonably honest for the past few decades, the "middle" would never have migrated so far left as to accommodate him or the likes of McCain. Remember which side it is that says asking people to show photo ID for voting is unfair. Remember which side wanted to throw out the military ballots on a technicality in 2000. Americans know they don't even have to catch Democrats red-handed to understand that cheating is necessary to them.
Vote fraud is what elects liberal Democrats; the MSM is a necessary accessory.
In February 2008, Fathiyyah Muhammad of Jacksonville, Florida, heard that ACORN was paying people three dollars for each voter they could register. ACORN paid her three dollars for each voter she registered, but Fatiyyah Muhammad says that the group threw out her votes and fired her when she brought them registrations of Republican voters.Weird, because Demwits dead for years are still allowed to register.
Don't delude yourself with slogans and meaningless historical generalizations. It can happen here. It can happen anywhere. And a country's past history has nothing to do with it. Totalitarianism is not a new product of historical evolution. It is older than history. It is the attempt of the worthless and the criminal to seize control of society. That element is always there, in any country. But a healthy society gives it no chance. It is when the majority in a country becomes weak, indifferent and confused that a criminal minority, beautifully organized like all gangs, seizes the power.
Yipes. Written in 1941. The wisdom of the Christian bible and I think Jewish fundamentals is startling: they advise that loving God is each person's most important job; that love necessarily entails accepting blessings. Doing so is good for everybody. Poor Ayn Rand was a declared atheist. Her words and writings on Totalitarianism are gifts from God. Yet instead of being grateful to Him for Rand's eloquence, accuracy, and honesty, I know of many conservative Christians who stupidly dismiss all things Ayn Rand wrote. They'd do better for themselves and their children to remember their job and acknowledge God's gift with gratitude.
We're not talking about California or New York; its florida.
It's not as if we didn't know or couldn't know. It's that too many of us didn't care.
It's not the fact that evil exists in the world today as it did then. It's that too many of us made our peace with it.
Now we all will pay.
“...proving that they threw away republican voter registrations would be as big as the pimp expose on FOX...”
John Stossel just signed on with FOX. I’ll bet you a donut that his first assignment WILL be ACORN.
I. Can’t. Wait. Tee-Hee! :)
We’ve got nearly three whole YEARS to ‘Swiftboat’ this administration.
Heck, we got rid of Kerry quicker than that! The more these morons over-play their hands, the better. And the money trail leads right up to The White House. Go figger. ;)
Thanks for the ping!
We’re well past the point that anything I learn about ACORN doesn’t surprise me. They are so clearly a corrupt organization. I hope the light of justice shines on them and destroys their criminal network, but will justice be served regarding this criminal organization with ties to Obama?
Well there are a number of blacks that claim to be conservative that chose skin color over principle in the last election.
Colin Powell and Armstrong Williams are two that come to mind quickly...
“...he reached more libs that way.”
I’m thinking not. They’re pretty ineducable. At least the ones in MY family are, even when ‘teachable moments’ slap them upside the head, LOL!
