Here is a bit of news that somehow has not gotten the attention of the national or mainstream media it deserves, but one that the American people should be fully aware of. This goes right to the heart of deception & integrity – or lack of it.
Representative Issa - the ranking minority member on the Government Reform & House Oversight Committee, has produced a new video in which President Barack Obama puts on display his loyalty & commitment to the community organizing group ACORN. For much throughout his Presidential run in 2008, Obama maintained that his relationship with ACORN was limited to representing them in a case involving the Motor Voter Law in Illinois.
Senatoras well as other Conservatives at the time questioned Obama’s association with the group and the impact they may have in the outcome of the election. Unfortunately, the Lame Street media refused to do their collective jobs in following up on the story and instead chose to cover up the claims. To see the President’s insolent audacity for being dishonest now, is troubling.
ACORN, as we have learned since the 2008 Presidential elections, has been tied to a string of cases involving voter registration fraud & illegally compensating its canvassers. Some of the charges & allegations include, filing fake voter registration cards, mutilation of election materials, instituting policies requiring employees to sign up to 20 voters per day or face termination & falsifying information to register new voters in key battleground states like Florida, Ohio, Missouri, North Carolina & Colorado.
The indictment and charges have not stopped & continue to pile on today in more than 13 states around the country. Recent financial misdeeds uncovered by citizen journalists posing as Pimp & Prostitute, show ACORN officials giving advice on how to set-up a brothel. These revelations have only served to bring about further scrutiny to the Obama-tied community group.
The undercover video exposed how widespread the misuse of Federal Funds by the organization has been. Last year the Congress – led by the efforts of Michelle Bachmann &, were able to defund the group and deny it access to Federal tax dollars. Unfortunately that maneuver was short-lived as the democratically led Congress lifted the ban one month later and then rewarded the group with a million dollar grant to boot. A grant from Homeland Security for Fire Safety that was supposed to have gone to the state of Louisiana. You can’t make this stuff up.
Darrell Issa has been consistent in his efforts to hold this administration’s feet to the fire and has questioned whether ACORN was intentionally structured as a criminal enterprise. Issa’s efforts have also led the Census Bureau to break its ties with the community organizing group.
This new video uncovered by Issa shows you the ability of this President to come on camera and resort to his Lawyer days and tell outright lies. The video shows you how deeply entrenched in their operations and committed Obama was to this group. It is almost as if he is beholden to them. Each time one if his lies is exposed, he loses credibility with the American public and the international community.
I am afraid that this has not been the first time nor will it be the last time that this President lies to the American people. It is an ugly trait & label to carry around or have put on you. I just hope that when he goes to sleep at night and puts his daughters to bed at night, he can look himself in the mirror at night knowing that he has lied on so many fronts to so many people.
