BREAKING NEWS: US House Report "Is ACORN Intentionally Structured As a Criminal Enterprise? "

Original post made by MaryAnn, Downtown, on Jul 23, 2009

Because the mainstream media will not inform you about this, the Executive Summary of the report is below and the entire report is linked as well. Keep in mind that ACORN "was" OBAMA's life in Chicago. He taught ACORN and he was ACORN's lawyer.

Sure they are a criminal organization and everybody already knew it or should have known it. Nothing will be done as they are protected by our President and his crime organization.

"Scrutiny is essential to lift a dark cloud of suspicion from nonprofit community organizations; to bring to justice the responsible parties who have heretofore been shielded from prosecution by ACORN’s obscure organizational structure; to protect the American system of democratic self-government from manipulation and disruption; and to free our political climate from the choke of corruption that threatens to strangle free and fair elections."

Delete: "nonprofit community organizations" and "ACORN"

Insert: "churches, corporations, special interests, lobbyists, unions," or any of a number of equally applicable terms.

How do you feel that the Republicans are at this date spending your tax dollars on a big report like this targeting a non-profit community organization affiliated with Obama; a thinly disguised effort to chip away at his credibility? He's already President. Were you going after the Bush administration and all their oil connections when we were paying +$4.00/gallon for gas?

Wait, I know - you forgot to question Obama's citizenship, too.

Had this report been generated by an independent investigator, it would bear more weight. Right now it appears to be sour grapes from the opposing party- regardless of its content.

I suggest you read the report as I have and it is quite frightening and everything listed is fact. Number of convictions, names, operatives etc. I wouldn't just dismiss it.

Dear J...
"Sour Grapes from the opposing party" you say???

The House Oversight Committee is composed of 24 Democrats and 15 Republicans with Darrell Issa (R-CA) as the Chairman. That equates to approx. 62% Democrat and 38% Republican.

So what is your next lame excuse?

Considering they were corrupt enough to bring down a country with their targeted mortgages. ACORN threatened key banks in every city to make loans to "people who otherwise would not be able to 'own' a home". ACORN worked closely with Barney Frank & Maxine Waters in the conspiracy, abusing the loan quarantee they knew would cover, but weren't smart enough to known the extent of the damage they were causing. As I recall there were 11 ACORN indictments around the country on election day....for registration/election abuses. The REAL scary thing is I heard ACORN is going to be running the census operations in cities across the corrupt & pad poopulation to up congressional seats !! Talk about the core corruption of a whole government....and deniers, liars, & politicians lacking integrity continue with the corruption of America. It should be an outrage, shame on us for surrendering that power.

What is a "poopulation?"
Key banks in EVERY CITY? I can immediately think of a few they missed.
I love it - ACORN brought down the country. That is insane. Totally insane.
The REALLY scary thing would be if the number of conspiracy theorists on these boards is representative of the number in the general population.
Make that "poopulation."
Come on, people. Look over the last 20 years of administrations. You really think ACORN is so influential?
And no, Nancy Pelosi is not the reason oil prices were high. That is utterly simplistic and patently ridiculous.
These boards have become a joke - all the sensible people have been driven away. There can be no intelligent debate here.
