Stanley Kurtz has written a very compelling article of how Acorn used it’s influence with congress to push the acceptability of risky subprime loans. Here are some exerpts from the must read article:

“SPREADING THE VIRUS
HOW ACORN & ITS DEM ALLIES BUILT THE MORTGAGE DISASTER

“By STANLEY KURTZ”
“TO discover the roots of to day’s economic crisis, consider a tale from 1995.

That March, House Speaker Newt Gingrich was scheduled to address a meeting of county commissioners at the Washington Hilton. But, first, some 500 protesters from the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) poured into the ballroom from both the kitchen and the main entrance.

Hotel staffers who tried to block them were quickly overwhelmed by demonstrators chanting, “Nuke Newt!” and “We want Newt!” Jamming the aisles, carrying bullhorns and taunting the assembled county commissioners, demonstrators swiftly took over the head table and commandeered the microphone, sending two members of Congress scurrying.”

“Yet ACORN had only just begun. Two days later, 50 to 100 of the same protesters hit their main target – a House Banking subcommittee considering changes to the Community Reinvestment Act, a law that allows groups like ACORN to force banks into making high-risk loans to low-credit customers.

The CRA’s ostensible purpose is to prevent banks from discriminating against minorities. But Rep. Marge Roukema (R-NJ), who chaired the subcommittee, was worried that charges of discrimination had become an excuse for lowering credit standards. She warned that new, Democrat-proposed CRA regulations could amount to an illegal quota system.

FOR years, ACORN had combined manipulation of the CRA with intimidation-protest tactics to force banks to lower credit standards. Its crusade, with help from Democrats in Congress, to push these high-risk “subprime” loans on banks is at the root of today’s economic meltdown.”

“So ACORN’s Democratic friends in Congress moved to force Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to dispense with normal credit standards. Throughout the early ’90s, they imposed ever-increasing subprime-lending quotas on Fannie and Freddie.”

“Requests to the Capital Police to release the activists from Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass,) failed. Then Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) showed up at the jail and refused to leave until the protesters were released; the Capital Police relented.”

“Instead, Democrats like Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.) and Reps. Kennedy and Waters allied with the Clinton administration to broaden the acceptability of risky subprime loans throughout the financial system, thus precipitating our current crisis.

ACORN had come to Congress not only to protect the CRA from GOP reforms but also to expand the reach of quota-based lending to Fannie, Freddie and beyond. By steamrolling the GOP that March, it had crushed the last potential barrier to “change.””

“HOW does Barack Obama fit into all of this? Obama has been a key ally of Chicago ACORN going back to his days as a community organizer.

Later, as a young lawyer, he offered leadership training to the activists who were forcing Chicago banks into high-risk subprime loans. And when he made it on to the boards of Chicago’s Woods Fund and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, he channeled money ACORN’s way.

Obama was perfectly aware of ACORN’s intimidation tactics – indeed, he oversaw a Woods Fund report that boasted of managing to fund the radical group despite its shocking behavior.

And as a lawmaker, in Illinois and in Washington, he has continued to back ACORN’s leglislative agenda.”

“ACORN’s alliance with the Democratic Party is at the root of the current financial meltdown. And Barack Obama has stayed true to ACORN’s ways.”

Disgusted with Obama and Acorn?

Keith Larson Show, Charlotte NC, Obama, Wright, Ayers, Blackwell, Lessig, NC primary, Clinton

The Keith Larson Show airs on WBT radio in Charlotte NC. The NC primary, is Tuesday, May 6, 2008. Larson tells it like it is and has been revealing the real Barack Obama, including, but not limited to the hate filled, anti American, anti semitic sermons and speeches of Jeremiah Wright. I have contacted Keth Larson with some additional information abot Obama. Since Larson is a champion for the truth and the best for this country, I expect he will cover these facts about Obama that the MSM is covering up.

Here is the email that I sent Keith Larson:

Are you aware of Lawrence Lessig, Obama friend, advisor, supporter,
ex coworker and rally speaker?
Are you aware that Lessig closed his blog on Friday, May 2, 2008?
Have you read his radical positions on gays and heterosexuals?
Have you seen the gay Jesus video he used in multiple seminars?
 
Are you aware of the Obama, Robert Blackwell legal retainer
“money laundering” scandal?
Are you aware of Blackwell’s ties to Rezko, the Illinois Governor and other
crime and corruption in Chicago and IL?
Robert Blackwell commented on my blog.
Blackwell and his companies donated a lot of money to Obama in 2007
and almost nothing in 2008.
 
I am in regular contact with a former Chicago restaurant owner that
herard persistent rumors about Obama.
 
Don’t dismiss the allegations of Larry Sinclair. I have been following
this story closely and get regular updates. Sinclair is meeting
with the Chicago Police soon. There have been orchestrated attempts
to discredit him as well as me. Why are they spending so much time
and money to discredit???
 
I trust that Keith Larson will acknowledge this email and at least ask some probing questions. Obama has been paying for advertising on WBT. But I know that Larson believes this is bigger than me, him or WBT. The future of this country is at stake.

NC primary, PA primary, Obama, Clinton, Citizen Wells endorsement

NC primary voters, PA primary voters, primary voters in other states. I consider myself more of an independent these days. I will be honest with you, I have never been a Hillary Clinton supporter. However, she looks really good compared to Barack Obama. I have thoroughly researched Obama and what I already know scares the hell out of me. Then there is the devil I do not know.

Rather than try to summarize why I have this stance, read my blog. Do as much research as you can elsewhere, but for the sake of this country, for the sake of our children and our children’s children, do not vote for Obama.

I hereby give my endorsement to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Nomination.

April 10, 2008, April 11, 2008 polls, polling data, Obama, Clinton, McCain, Obama slipping, Associated Press-Ipsos national poll, AOL poll

Barack Obama has lost his 10 point lead over John McCain in a presidential matchup. Obama and McCain are in a statistical tie in a Associated Press-Ipsos national poll taken Thursday, April 10, 2008. Obama dropped 10 points among women from February to April. Clinton and Obama basically maintained their prior positions against each other.

The results from a unscientific poll taken  on AOL, Friday, April 11, 2008 at 9:00 EDST are as follows:

Who do you think will win the Democratic nomination?
Barack Obama 63%
Hillary Clinton 37%

Election 2008, latest polls, AOL, CNN, Rasmussen, Obama, Clinton, McCain

Barack Obama has slipped in the polls due to his connection with racist pastor Jeremiah Wright. Polling data is always suspect, however, the new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll today, March 18, 2008 looks suspect. Here is the Rasmussen data that came out yesterday:

“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows John McCain with a six-percentage point lead over both potential Democratic opponents. McCain currently leads Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton by an identical 48% to 42% margin. McCain has a double-digit lead over Clinton among unaffiliated voters and is essentially even with Obama among those same voters. However, McCain makes greater inroads among Democrats with Obama as the nominee.”

The Rasmussen data appears to reflect the reaction of the public to racist comments of pastor Jeremiah Wright, Barack Obama’s pastor and mentor. Now look at the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll data:

Obama and Clinton are locked in a dead heat with the Arizona senator. If Obama wins the nomination, he would get 47 percent of the vote compared to 46 percent for McCain,  a statistical tie given the poll’s 3 percentage point margin of error. If Clinton wins the nomination, the poll indicates she would get 49 percent compared to McCain’s 47 percent,  also a statistical tie.

“Clinton appears to do a little bit better than Obama among older voters, women, and self-identified Democrats against McCain; Obama’s numbers may be slightly better among younger voters and those who describe themselves as Republicans and Independents,”

Is the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll biased?

Now for the AOL unscientific poll today. Today, March 18 2008 at approx 12:00 PM, here are the results:

Who do you think will be the Democratic presidential nominee?
Hillary Clinton 50% 
Barack Obama 50% 

Total Votes: 83,497

Which candidate would make the best president?
John McCain 48% 
Hillary Clinton 30% 
Barack Obama 22% 

Total Votes: 91,723

Federal income tax, Clinton versus Bush comparison

Once again, the nice lady from the west coast has delivered an interesting email. Think the democrats are watching out for the little guy? Think George Bush and the republicans are just trying to help the wealthy? Read the following:

After watching a focus group of democrats that watched the democratic debate the other day in Vegas, ….  for the most part, all of them bashed Bush over and over again on how he is out for his millionaire friends and the big oil companies and he has totally forgotten or disregarded the little guy.  So, an ex-IRS employee decided to look back on the tax tables to see if there is any truth to what they said and the media keeps stating as fact, “Bush is only out for the rich in this country.”

Based on using the actual tax tables (see link below), here are some examples on what the taxes were/are on various amounts of income for both singles and married couples. so let’s see if the Bush tax cuts only helped the rich.
Taxes under Clinton 1999                                     Taxes under Bush 2008
Single making 30K – tax $8,400                           Single making 30K – tax $4,500
Single making 50K – tax $14,000                         Single making 50K – tax $12,500
Single making 75K – tax $23,250                          Single making 75K – tax $18,750
Married making 60K – tax $16,800                     Married making 60K – tax $9,000
Married making 75K – tax $21,000                     Married making 75K – tax $18,750
Married making 125K – tax $38,750                 Married making 125K – tax $31,250
If you want to know just how effective the mainstream media is, it is amazing how many people that fall into the categories above think Bush is screwing them and Bill Clinton was the greatest President ever.  If any democrat is elected, ALL of them say they will repeal the Bush tax cuts and a good portion of the people that fall into the categories above can’t wait for it to happen.  This is like the movie ‘The Sting’ with Paul Newman, you scam somebody out of some money and they don’t even know what happened.  Now this is effective (maybe not honest) marketing or maybe a better word is brain washing.

Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton’s chances poll, over for Hillary Clinton, poll results

Obama appears to have the momentum at the moment, however delegate wise, it is very close. Many are seeing the end for Hillary Clinton, especially with recent losses and many endorsements, including endorsements from former Clinton supporters. Mark Twain once said, “reports of my demise are greatly exaggerated.” Is Hillary Clinton’s demise greatly exaggerated? Does Hillary Clinton still have a chance? Vote in the poll to your right.
