  • If Your Pastor Has A $60k A Year Clothing Allowance, You Probably Should Leave That Church

    Townhall.com ^ | 10-12-2014 | Doug Giles
    Last Thursday evening I had my pastor over to Casa de Giles to enjoy one of my fine cigars with the family and me. During the course of catching up, I found out that several new families from a local South Florida mega-church had left that zoo and had joined our church. The reason why they said they absconded had me gobsmacked – and I’m a hard critter to shock. Having been in the ministry for twenty-five years, I’ve pretty much heard it all and have seen it all, but I wasn’t ready for this curve ball. This time it...

    Sometimes I wish I was a radical gay, or a revolting, slick-haired, black race-baiter or drastic Muslim like that angry, rage-boy dude who’s the poster child for all the funny as heck Muslim memes. Why am I forlorn at times with my heterosexuality, my caucasoidness and my evangelicalism? Well … it’s not that I now loathe the ladies, my pigmentation or the five Solas of the Reformation, but it’s primarily predicated upon the fact that as such a critter I can’t get away with squat any longer. Heck, I can’t even use a tone in my voice, unless I’m mocking...

    It’s now been two years since Andrew Breitbart died. Unlike many of Breitbart’s friends and admirers who initiated a relationship with him, I was forced to relate with him. And I don’t like being forced to do anything. I initially met Andrew Breitbart over the phone when I called him on September 8, 2009. That was the day before my daughter Hannah’s scandalous ACORN videos were released on the public’s head. Andrew was on the road, and I was in Vail about to speak at a men’s conference and wanted to know, from a man I didn’t know, if he...

    Let me see if I have this right. According to the Thought Police, Duck Dynasty’s patriarch Phil Robertson is a bigot because he said what the majority of the planet believes namely, that men prefer a woman’s yoo-hoo instead of a man’s Chattahoochee canal? I know that’s not exactly what he said during the GQ interview where he dared to tell everyone what he or she and A&E already clearly knew he thought. I merely cleaned that sentence up for the children. And by children, I mean the rabid gay adults who freak out when they read the words “vagina”...

    If you’re in your late teens and you get shot after assaulting a neighborhood-watch supervisor, and you want someone else to get blamed for your behavior, here are thirteen tips to make you look like an “innocent child” that loves Skittles, doing math and riding horses versus a gangbanger-in-waiting. 1. Don’t have pictures on social media, or on your cell phone, of you holding guns like a gangsta. If you do take pictures with firearms, make certain the weapon is held properly, away from the camera, with your finger off the trigger and it does not give off the I'm-a-criminal-in-training...

    Last Thursday Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and other U.S. military leaders lifted the ban on women serving in combat positions. I, for one, think this is a great idea and have a few modest proposals, if the brass inside the beltway is open to suggestions, on how they should deploy the dames (and whom they should deploy). First off, if you truly want to eviscerate the enemy—namely Muslims—then I propose sending the most nerve grating and foul women Hollywood has to offer straight into hot zones as our forward armies.

    Why do some atheists embarrass themselves year after year trying to eradicate Christmas from American culture? Why do they make themselves societal hemorrhoids during this hallowed season? Is it because they are crusaders for equality, secularism’s saviors and humanism’s heroes? I’m sure that’s what they tell themselves when they’re pouting on their couches all alone on Christmas Eve after every single one of their friends has dumped them for being a rabid jackass. I believe, however—and I could be wrong—that the reason some rage against the machine is that they hate God and love their sin, and bringing up Jesus...

    [SNIP] My plan that Thursday had been to travel to Camp David to cover the G8 Summit that was convening just 15 miles from my Maryland home. But when I began reading Walker's account of his tangle with Kimberlin, I soon spotted the name of a Democrat campaign consultant, Neal Rauhauser, described as an "associate" of Kimberlin. This was clearly newsworthy, and raised the story above the level of a squabble between bloggers. Rauhauser is a self-described "hacker," and in 2010 was accused by Tea Party activists of organizing a campaign of online harassment known as "TwitterGate." This apparent connection...

Regis Giles, 19, is one of America's hottest hunters - and she's taking the big game world by storm. She's killed buffalo, wild boar, deer and a bear in her hunting career, which began when she was aged just nine. And she's already drawing parallels to Sarah Palin, America's most famous gun-toting wilderness-loving woman. Miss Giles is a lifetime member of the NRA. She was...

Her eyes smoldering, Lewis took to the podium at a Democratic Socialists of America gathering and lit into the Tea Parties of late. "This is not rhetoric or hyperbole -- this is real," she thundered. "This rise of this Tea Party so-called movement -- bowel movement in my estimation -- and this blatant uncovering and ripping off the...

    A Christian pundit, Dawn Eden, thinks my daughter Hannah Giles and her partner James O’Keefe should not have used Saul Alinsky’s deceptive tactics against ACORN because Saul was “evil,” his methods sneaky, and he dedicated his book, Rules for Radicals, to Lucifer. In addition, Eden took a swipe at Lila Rose, Planned Parenthood’s main pain in the butt, for being deceptive in her undercover vids which exposed Planned Parenthood’s illegal activity. Oh, and I almost forgot: Dawn also busted on Hannah for being un-Christlike for wearing a miniskirt and dressing like a hooker. Sounds a little catty to me—and a...

There were five initially that came out, ACORN was defunded by the Senate, was defunded by the House, lost it’s link to the Census; while all that damage occurred, Congress didn’t come in to investigate them, obviously not the Attorney General’s office, and they’ve now realized...

    Of particular significance is the visit by ACORN spokesman Scott Levenson who met with White House political director Patrick Gaspard in March. The purpose of the meeting with Gaspard, a former ACORN employee himself, was not disclosed. Levenson, who is also a registered lobbyist for New York ACORN, is the charming fellow whom Glenn Beck threw off his set May 6 for calling the TV host a racist. He's been helping to coordinate ACORN's public disinformation strategy which relies heavily on lies and misdirection. It is worth noting that Levenson's visit to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue wouldn't in itself be untoward...

  • Question about ACORN Philadelphia Police Report (FOIL?)

    As we know, ACORN has claimed that conservative journalists Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe were turned away from the Philadephia office and that a police report was filed to that effect. Has anyone tried filing a Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) request with the Philadephia police to determine when, if at all, ACORN filed that police report?I'm thinking it might be illuminating.

    American Spectator ^ | 10.21.09 @ 9:49PM | By Matthew Vadum
    The latest undercover sting video showing ACORN advising a fake pimp and prostitute on how to break the law was released today.... This new video is especially significant because ACORN claimed repeatedly and strenuously that ACORN's Philadelphia office threw the make-believe pimp (James O'Keefe) and prostitute (Hannah Giles) out when it learned of the planned illegal behavior. ACORN lied through its teeth -- and the new video showing what really happened in Philadelphia proves it.

    The Provocateur ^ | 10/21/2009 | Mike Volpe
    Andrew Breitbart has released another ACORN video. This one is from Philly and it's done on his other site, Breitbart TV. The video is heavily edited and intermittently shows news coverage of their sting. Ultimately, here is the story as told by Giles and O'Keefe. After these initial videos came out, ACORN and some of its allies, mainly Media Matters, claimed that when they came to the Philadelphia office they were immediately thrown out. This was something said by CEO Bertha Lewis and Carol Hemingway, head of the Pennsyvlania ACORN. They said this on news outlets like CNN and CSPAN...

    Canada Free Press ^ | October 13, 2009 | Marinka Peschmann
    Last week, Bertha Lewis, the chief-organizer at ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, cited Linda Tripp when she spoke about ACORN’s lawsuit against James O’Keefe, Hannah Giles and Breitbart.com at Washington’s National Press Club. ACORN’s lawsuit accuses O’Keefe and Giles, whose pimp and prostitute undercover operation captured ACORN workers, on video counseling them on how to cheat tax laws among other potential crimes, of violating Maryland law that requires two-party consent for electronic surveillance. Breitbart.com, the news website, is also named as a defendant for first posting the video. “It is illegal, as Linda Tripp will tell...

    Fox News via Big Government ^ | 9/28/2009 | Ken Klukowski
    The courts should vindicate the First Amendment rights of the reporters and media outlets involved in breaking the ACORN scandal wide open. And they should strike down the oppressive and absurd Maryland law that makes it a crime to record someone’s conversation without their knowledge. -snip- Maryland has a shockingly-broad law that makes it a crime—a felony, if fact—to record someone’s conversation without their knowledge. It then makes it a separate crime to disclose that conversation to a third party if the person disclosing knew or had reason to know that the conversation was illegally recorded. Although the Baltimore prosecutor...

    Baltimore County Circuit Court ^ | 09/23/2009 | Andrew Freeman, Attorney for ACORN
    Here is the full text of the ACORN complaint against James O'Keefe, Hannah Giles, and Breitbart.com. ACORN is suing for over $3,000,000 plus litigation costs and requesting appropriate punative damages. They demand a jury trial. The complaint asks the court to enter a temporary restraining order, preliminary and permament injunctions requiring the defendants to cease distributing and broadcasting the oral communications intercepted in the Baltimore offices of ACORN in July 2009, and to make their best efforts to prevent others from distributing and broadcasting said communications. Hannah Giles has launched a legal defense fund. You can donate here.

    SunSentinel ^ | 09/27/2009 | Earl Maucker
    What Michael said on his blog is the sting by Hannah Giles, an FIU student who posed as a prostitute and attempted to get grant money from ACORN, was "Internet-age infotainment," not good journalism. Michael was absolutely correct. This was a stunt, pure and simple. Two self-described conservatives hell bent to embarrass ACORN may be appropriate for You Tube, and instant celebrity with Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck, but it doesn't qualify as honest journalism. No one is disputing that what some ACORN employees did — trying to find tax dodges and grant money for Giles and her accompanying pretend...

    Let me see if I have this right: ACORN, in five locations coast-to-coast are on tape counseling tax fraud, tax evasion, money laundering, and the coup de grace, how to set up a whorehouse for 12 to 15-year-old El Salvadoran sex slaves, and now ACORN and the Left are POed about it being exposed without ACORN’s consent?! What else ticks the Left off about ACORN being uncovered assisting in some of the worst kind of scandalous scat known to mankind? Well, if you Google around you’ll find the “progressives” are peeved not because ACORN had the spotlight bare down on...

    Island Turtle ^ | Seotember 26, 2009 | Corky Boyd
    When the Swiftboat story first surfaced in early August 2004, John Kerry ignored it on the advice of his staff. For that he blames his loss. Why did his advisors take this tack? Most likely because they had confidence the story would be “ignored” by the old media. And it was. That is until talk radio and Fox news made it an issue. The rest is history. The new bias of the established media is not the phony story or the coordinated regurgitation of DNC talking points. It is the blackout of major stories that reflect badly on Democrats. But...
