    On July 9th 2014 President Obama made a visit to Dallas Texas for two reasons.   The first reason was fundraising, the second reason was to meet with Governor Rick Perry and “Faith Leaders” to discuss the border crisis....The impression intended would be that President Obama just met with a bunch of religious organizational heads, perhaps priests, pastors and ministers.  Along with “faith based” advocates who are helping to deal with the immediate needs of the illegal aliens, unaccompanied minors, and the larger “border crisis”.You would be wrong.To avoid my calling our President of The United States a liar, I will instead say President Obama is being...

    The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce is “outraged” over a ballot measure to raise San Francisco’s minimum wage to $15 an hour, saying in a statement on Monday that it “flies in the face of collaboration and partnership.” The measure would lift base pay about 40 percent from its current $10.74, making San Francisco’s minimum wage the highest in the country. Activists were expected to file papers on Monday for the November ballot. The measure, designed by SEIU Local 1021, the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, and other activist groups, would give companies with fewer than 100 employees until...

    As recently as 1998, New York State’s Republican party controlled the governorship, a United States Senate seat, and the mayor’s office in Manhattan. Today, it is greatly diminished, with its sole beachhead of influence in the state senate, where it shares a majority with four independent Democrats. In contrast, the Working Families party (WFP), a 15-year-old left-wing, union-fueled group with just 20,000 members, now holds the whip hand over much of the dominant Democratic party in New York — and is already spreading its wings to other states.

To help the American people navigate the onerous and confusing requirements of signing up for Obamacare exchanges, the administration spent millions of taxpayer dollars to create the navigator program.

So — who are these navigators and what is their role in Obamacare? To help answer that question, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is holding a field hearing Monday at the Charles...

    When the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was passed, the Obama Administration envisioned that all states would implement the program as outlined in the law. However, unlike any federal program in recent history, 27 states have decided not to create a Health Insurance Exchange and instead let the federal government implement it at a cost in excess of $8 billion. This results in a “top down” payment system versus the “bottom up” approach the framers of the legislation expected. What this means is that some states will have federal marketplaces, and others will have their own locally developed marketplaces for employers...

    As Obamacare is being launched with all it's "FAIL FARE", I hate to bust your bubble. This has nothing to do with Healthcare. Or Insurance. This is Acorn on steroids. Acorn with techno-savy, government backing with the basic goal of creating as many government dependents as possible. There are dozens of "private" companies that are authorized to facilitate enrollment in the so-called exchanges. These guys are simply agents that front as "insurance" and collect money to get people to enroll in Government Care. This administration is using the private sector to expand the nanny state. And they will call this...

    Americans for Tax Reform ^ | September 30, 2013 | John Kartch
    As Obamacare enrollment begins, the Department of Health and Human Services has a helpful tip for the program's so-called Navigators: "Do not leave documents that contain PII [Personally Identifiable Information] or tax return information on printers and fax machines." The warning is contained in Section 2.4.3 of the 207-page Health Insurance Marketplace Navigator Standard Operating Procedures Manual. The same section asks navigators to "double-check" the fax number before faxing Obamacare enrollee's tax returns: "When faxing PII or tax return information, double-check that the recipient's fax number is correct and that someone is able to pick up the faxed information immediately."...

    Twenty years ago, the mayoral victory of Rudy Giuliani represented a repudiation of the dysfunctional left-wing machine that had previously run New York City. Taxpayers, parents in failing schools, residents of crime-ridden neighborhoods, and job creators have all benefited from the tough reforms Giuliani implemented — and his successor Michael Bloomberg largely implemented — in the years after that sea-change election. But this November, the Left looks ready to storm back into New York’s City Hall in the person of Bill de Blasio — who, back in the days when he served as an aide to David Dinkins, Giuliani’s Democratic...

    President Obama and more than a dozen U.S. government agencies participated in a Washington D.C. conference that featured a keynote speaker—a black activist who headed the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)—who made racist remarks about whites. It gets better; American taxpayers helped fund the annual event, put on by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation (CBCF), a group that aims to improve the socioeconomic circumstances of African Americans and other underserved communities. Each exhibitor paid $2,000 to participate in the yearly showcase which is billed as one of the largest gatherings of African American professionals. Eighteen federal agencies...

    On the evening of September 17, Bill de Blasio declared his primary victory, formally becoming the Democratic nominee and front-runner for New York City mayor. Standing behind him, one of the few invited onstage for this momentous event, was a friend, an adviser, a strategist, and a campaigner — Bertha Lewis, former head of ACORN. De Blasio, the truest of progressives — who turned some heads recently when he defended his support of the Sandinista government in Nicaragua in the 1980s — has been connected for more than a decade with the now infamous Association of Community Organizations for Reform...

    It is called the Federal Data Hub. Massive amounts of information gathered on every American and shared between government agencies. Agencies ranging from the the IRS to the Department of Defense, Homeland Security and Health and Human Services. The best part there is no opting out. So who all has access to this information and the bigger question does private information even exist anymore? The step toward truth is to inform. There is as we speak an army of new federal government employees being hired by the department of Health and Human Services. Why does HHS need all these new...

    ACORN’s former CEO Bertha Lewis urged Africans-Americans to support increased immigration as a strategy to gain political power. “We got some Latino cousins, we got some Asian cousins, we got some Native-American cousins, we got all kind of cousins,” said Lewis, who spoke Thursday at the annual political conference of the Congressional Black Caucus. “Cousins need to get together because if we’re going to be [part of the non-white] majority, it makes sense for black people in this country to get down with immigration reform,” said Lewis, whose ACORN group was formally disbanded in 2010 after a series of scandals....

    New documents obtained by Judicial Watch, proves that the Obama administration continued to fund ACORN after all funding was banned for that organization. ACORN Housing changed their name to Affordable Housing Centers of America. All the top officials at ACORN Housing retained the same positions at AHCOA. They also retained the same tax number. Snip Since there was a federal ban on public funding of ACORN by the federal government, they should not have received a federal grant. NeighborWorks America, a public/private entity, funded by the taxpayers of the United States, determined that was a violation of federal law. Judicial...

    The Obama Administration has given a $200,000 Housing Grant to rebrand an ACORN affiliate despite a Federal Ban on funding ACORN. Judicial Watch reports the following: Judicial Watch, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) revealing that on February 12, 2013, HUD Assistant Secretary for Office of Housing Counseling Sarah Gerecke may have violated federal law by requesting that $201,222.07 be transferred from the account of the defunct Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA), an ACORN spin-off, to HUD intermediary Mission for Peace “to specifically pay for the activities of former...
