    ACORN, a social justice organization with roots in [New Orleans], battles a string of scandals. The announcement stuck to a wall outside the entrance to ACORN's local office in the 2600 block of Canal Street quietly signals the trouble afoot. In English and Spanish, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now tells walk-up clients that ACORN's housing office has shut itself down for two weeks to immerse itself "in an intensive training program." The sign is a symptom of a tumultuous week in the history of a controversial poor people's social justice movement -- one founded by a New...

Samson Obama, who lives in Kenya, was on his way to the US presidential inauguration in January when he was stopped at East Midlands Airport.

    Politics: The long-awaited "whistle-blower" in the U.S. attorneys affair gave Senate Democrats an unpleasant surprise: The whole issue of political influence in choosing prosecutors is "largely artificial," he testified. Kyle Sampson, former chief of staff to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, and coordinator of the December removal of eight U.S. attorneys, was supposed to be the John Dean of the Attorneygate scandal. Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy of Vermont, New York Sen. Charles Schumer and Sen. Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania, the panel's ranking Republican, all did their best impersonations of former GOP Sen. Howard Baker at the Watergate hearings, solemnly asking...

    Uncle Samson? Posted: November 13, 2003 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com What is the source of America's strength? Some say it is our diversity. Some say it is our political system. Some say it is our military power. Some say it is our industry. Some say it is our natural resources. Some say it is our Constitution. I say they're all wrong. The strength of America comes from the spirit of God that still resides in its people. But the vestiges of that spirit are waning. They are under ceaseless attack.
