WASHINGTON, March 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) detailing federal investigations into the alleged corrupt activities of Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). The documents reference serious allegations of corruption and voter registration fraud by ACORN as well as the Obama administration's decision to shut down a criminal investigation without filing criminal charges.
The documents include background information on two specific complaints filed in October 2008 by Lucy Corelli and Joseph Borges, Republican Registrars of Voters in Stamford and Bridgeport, Connecticut, respectively, during the 2008 election season.

A perfect impeachable obstruction of justice charge that can be filed against this adminstration after November.
Does this surprise anyone?
Unjustice Department too.
Now let’s see if ACORNgate can expand......
The list, ping
Shutting down an investigation by the DOJ becuse it benefits you is a crime isn’t it? Should we just start calling him “Carter-Nixon” to bug the left?
If this is not an impeachable offense, nothing is..............
Filing this in ...
THUG-O-CRAT hit list [shocking links and headlines]
[Anyone here want to try my once-a-day ping list? One million dollars a ping (don’t worry — just tax money). Money-back guarantee after we flee to some unnamed island with Geihtner, Rezko, Hugh Rodham, Pelosi, Cold Cash Jefferson, Rangel, and Reid. ACORN leaders and a dozen Obama tax cheats provide the prostitutes. Don’t worry about birth control; all babies that survive abortions will be killed. Goldman Sachs and Fannie/FReddie show us how to stimulate ourselves, while Gorelick and Kevin Johnson sing a duet. At the pool: Massa, Deadfish, and Barney Frank are required to wear swimming trunks. Bill Ayers wows us with fireworks. Soros and Petrobras bring refreshments. Rev. Jackson is kitchen supervisor — promises not to spit. Yes, it’s a ton of fun ‘ping party’, and I rarely torture you more than once a day.]
George Washington: “Government is not reason; it is not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a terrible master.”
Never have I seen anyone who looked like he deserved a good whacking up against the side of the head as this guy.
This is Judicial Watch. Postponing my opinion pending actual facts.
When Obama met with ACORN leaders in November, he reminded them of his history with ACORN and his beginnings in Illinois as a Project Vote organizer, a nonprofit focused on voter rights and education. Senator Obama said, "I come out of a grassroots organizing background. That's what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. That's the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize. So this is something that I know personally, the work you do, the importance of it. I've been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.

Add in the Black Panther case, establish a pattern of obstruction.
Open and transparent government. Maybe alive in Russia these days but not here.
Speaking of Nixon ....
John Conyers was one of Nixon’s leading headhunters. His own wife could have taught Nixon a thing or two:
Monica Conyers, wife of Detroit congressman, faces sentence for bribery scheme in sludge deal
“A perfect impeachable obstruction of justice charge that can be filed against this administration after November.
Add in the Black Panther case, establish a pattern of obstruction. “
Where are the Republicans?
No question. The big question is whether the GOP will have the spheres to press it. Given past history...
I am convinced that the nation will fail any day at warp speed & we will be as totalitarian as 3rd world dictators. If the people haven't take up arms & gone after this over-the-top CONgress & shadow government - co-mingled between (D)s & (R)s by this time I see no hope that they will in the future. Bet your booties that the elites won't stop until they are stopped & their consolidated power is now to the point of non reversal.
And these below for the obvious common political agenda:
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
Eric Holder, Bill Clinton, Wright's 'Black Liberation' "church", and the pardons of 16 members of the Puerto Rican Marxist terrorist group FALN:(Wright's Marxist BLT 'church' (Obama's 'church' for 20+ years) advocated for FALN terrorists)
"During the 1970s and 1980s, FALN members set off at least 138 bombs in five major U.S. Cities. Six Americans were killed in those attacks. One of those bombings, in January 1975, was at the historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan while patrons were at lunch. The explosion killed four and injured more than 50."
"Between 1974 and 1985 the FALN (Puerto Rican Armed Forces of National Liberation) organized 120 terrorist bombings in the United States. Many Americans were killed in those bombings, and many more were crippled. In 1983, another Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the Macheteros, attacked and robbed a Wells Fargo armored car in Connecticut. The Macheteros intended to use the money to finance a terrorist campaign against the United States. Working under the cover of Puerto Rican nationalism and claiming to act on behalf of the 'oppressed people of Puerto Rico,' the FALN and the Macheteros are nothing but Communist revolutionaries. Both groups were organized by Fidel Castro's secret police. The ultimate goal of the FALN and the Macheteros is the creation of an independent Marxist-Leninist dictatorship on the island of Puerto Rico."
Eric Holder's role in the pardons of BLA (Black Liberation Army) comrades/Weather Underground members, Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans (1983 Brinks Truck robbery and triple murder):
Obama and his Black Liberation Theology "spiritual adviser" of 20+ years, Jeremiah Wright
He’s (Obama) insulated himself from it (impeachment). At best, you might cause Eric Holder to explain himself...he might even sweat a little...but Obama is above the fray. I kills me...just like he’s doing with Congress....they’re carrying his water for him and their polls are sinking while his remain largely unchanged.
Aren’t they glad they ‘changed’ their name!!!?
Of course he did.
Carville got it right, "It's the economy, stupid." (No, I am not addressing this quote to you, but it does in a sense apply to many middle of the roaders.)
Or: the Just Us Department.
B U M P !!!
And Issa is investigating the “jobs for candidatesgate” in Philadelphia. Package it all up, and go for “Obstruction of Justice”
This guy is GOING to be impeached. BAsed on his track record, he will be collecting his Presidential Pension in Fort Leavenworth.
Life is good.
Typical Gestapo/SS tactics???
Didn’t Brietbart say that if the Feds did nothing on the Acorn scandal that he had more video he was going to release?
John Conyers, the guy leading the "Bush-Cheney torture" investigations, is hooked up with the Revolutionary Communist Party-initiated group "World Can't Wait". He both endorsed their movement and spoke at a major event of theirs. Lots more on this at my FR Home page.
You mean to hold him to his own standard toward Nixon? For shame!
Its only been over a year of O, seems like a decade - at this pace there will be numerous 'gates. Still think there should be a stimulus gate , given all the fake zip codes money was sent to, Freddie and Fannie gate....
A few defeats of big name RINOs in primary season can change that mentality.
another -- AIG, FED, illegal trust -gate
We need to make it all stick and throw him and other Rats/RINOs in Leavenworth.
I like the way you think! >;-)
You, myself and lots of our fellow citizens really want a piece of Bozo and his cabal. We need to pursue this with a passion and send a message.
WSupport the Tea Party and work for conservative candidates at every level of government .
NO more John McCaines.
I do. McRino is going down in flames this primary season. Go JD!
Nixon was undermined by communists.
"Daniel Ellsberg (born April 7, 1931) is a former American military analyst employed by the RAND Corporation who precipitated a national political controversy in 1971 when he released the Pentagon Papers, a top-secret Pentagon study of government decision-making about the Vietnam War, to The New York Times and other newspapers."
"As a response to the leaks, the Nixon administration began a campaign against further leaks and against Ellsberg personally. Aides Egil Krogh and David Young under John Ehrlichman's supervision created the 'White House Plumbers,' which would later lead to the Watergate burglaries."
So what is Daniel Ellsberg up to these days? Well, for one thing, he is an endorser of the Revolutionary Communist Party's "World Can't Wait" movement...
