ACORN Exposed by undercover journalists


After Census Severs Ties, ACORN May Face Scrutiny of Housing
Conservatives have cheered the Census Bureau's decision to sever ties with ACORN because it had lost confidence in the group, but the hidden-camera videos that prompted ACORN to fire four workers this week could raise more questions about the federal funding ACORN receives for housing outreach.

*What is Acorn?

They would describe themselves as a community action group, that helps low to middle class families with house, loans and other social needs. The problem is, they are also an anti-Capitalist group that has long ago crossed the line in to extremism (think code pink).

This is what Wiki says about ACORN.

On the surface it looks like this group just wants to help people, but it goes much deeper than that. According to Palestinian born journalist Sol Stern, this group is nothing more than a radical group, "leading this city to serfdom".
If you thought the New Left was dead in America, think again. Walk through just about any of the nation’s inner cities, and you’re likely to find an office of ACORN, bustling with young people working 12-hour days to “organize the poor” and bring about “social change.” The largest radical group in the country, ACORN has 120,000 dues-paying members, chapters in 700 poor neighborhoods in 50 cities, and 30 years’ experience. It boasts two radio stations, a housing corporation, a law office, and affiliate relationships with a host of trade-union locals. Not only big, it is effective, with some remarkable successes in getting municipalities and state legislatures to enact its radical policy goals into law.

The wall street journal also covered this group:
The movement is not always what it appears to be. Though Acorn touts living-wage laws as a way to lift the working poor into the middle class, the vast body of academic work on wage laws shows that they end up hurting the poor by forcing businesses to eliminate some low-wage jobs. Acorn's own leadership understands this principle perfectly. When California regulators sued Acorn for not paying its own workers the minimum wage, Acorn argued that this would endanger its mission—because it would have to hire fewer workers.

So basically, they drove business out of town with their practices, but called foul when it came back on them.

More about ACORN's radical practices.

This group is being investigated for voter fraud right now. Apparently, their workers registered about 2,000 fraudulent voters for an election.
The ACORN workers told state investigators that they went to the Seattle public library, sat at a table and filled out the voter registration forms. They made up names, addresses, and Social Security numbers and in some cases plucked names from the phone book. One worker said it was a lot of hard work making up all those names and another said he would sit at home, smoke marijuana and fill out the forms.

*How does this relate to Obama?

When you here Obama tout his "community organizer" experience. ACORN is what hes talking about. What has he done for this group?

1. Obama worked with a woman named Madeleine Talbot (ACORN leader), to clean up asbestos. Actually, she did all the work and Obama just took all the credit. In any case, Talbot lead an attempted raid on the Chicago City Council.
And what exactly was Talbot’s work with Acorn? Talbot turns out to have been a key leader of that attempt by Acorn to storm the Chicago City Council (during a living-wage debate). While Sol Stern mentions this story in passing, the details are worth a look: On July 31, 1997, six people were arrested as 200 Acorn protesters tried to storm the Chicago City Council session. According to the Chicago Daily Herald, Acorn demonstrators pushed over the metal detector and table used to screen visitors, backed police against the doors to the council chamber, and blocked late-arriving aldermen and city staff from entering the session. As Talbot was led away handcuffed, charged with mob action and disorderly conduct, she explicitly justified her actions in storming the meeting. This was the woman who first drew Obama into his alliance with Acorn, and whose staff Obama helped train.

2. Obama claims to have worked with with blacks, whites and Hispanics with this group, but in the LA times article, the community claims it was mostly blacks.
Consider the second charge against Obama raised by the L.A. Times backgrounder. On the stump today, Obama often says he helped prevent South Side Chicago blacks, Latinos, and whites from turning on each other after losing their jobs, but many of the community organizers interviewed by the L. A. Times say that Obama worked overwhelmingly with blacks.

Not that big of a deal, but it goes to show how Obama misleads people about what hes done as a so called "Community Organizer".

3. According to Tony Foulkes (Chicago Acorn leader and a member of Acorn’s National Association Board) Obma trained ACORN "leaders" for "project Vote".
Foulkes claims that Acorn specifically sought out Obama’s representation in the motor voter case, remembering Obama from the days when he worked with Talbot. And while many reports speak of Obama’s post-law school role organizing “Project VOTE” in 1992, Foulkes makes it clear that this project was undertaken in direct partnership with Acorn. Foulkes then stresses Obama’s yearly service as a key figure in Acorn’s leadership-training seminars.

So along with the reservoir of political support that came to Obama through his close ties with Jeremiah Wright, Father Michael Pfleger, and other Chicago black churches, Chicago Acorn appears to have played a major role in Obama’s political advance.

What does all of this add up to? If nothing else, it deserves attention from the media. Obama obviously has some close ties to them. Hes trained, protested, organized and has been a lawyer for the organization. The same group that had a hand in his rise to power.

Why has the media been silent on this? How in the world can a person that claims hes for the little guy, train an organization that ends up hurting the poor and is proven to do so? Why is Obama surrounded by so many radicals? How in the world is this not a huge news story?
JMC Ministries thoughts

We have been watching and reading about ACORN Since the news first started talking about them. However, not many news stations are talking about this issue. Even now that these undercover videos have been exposed. Certain News stations still are not covering it.

Not many people have even heard the name ACORN. So we found the above discussion someone shared on These are the news articles and info they found online about ACORN and we think that they nailed it.

Some may be wondering, because some have even asked this, "why are you covering political articles?" Some went as far as to say, "christians shouldn't get involved in this 'stuff'."

We as JMC Ministries believe we should cover all types of news that we feel Christians and those who stand for moral values need to know about. We are not democrat or republican. We are CHRISTIANS! We stand for the Christian Values our Country was founded on, and when those values are not being upheld we take a stand. This is a democracy government. Not a communist, dictator, or monarchy government. As long as we have these freedoms to stand up and let our voices be heard WE must!

If you study and read the bible you will find many Christians in history changed the world and helped influence great rulers and governments. If they got involved then why shouldn't we? As Christians we are to bring the light in darkness and expose the lies with TRUTH!

"Knowledge is Power" and as long as we know the truth the enemy can't deceive us with the lies.

Savage Attack Leaves Man With Half A Head in Great Britain

link to original story

Two thugs who punched a young man so hard surgeons had to remove half of his skull have escaped charges.

Steve Gator with his mother Nina, furious his attackers will escape charges

Steve Gator, 26, has been told the teenagers who ambushed him will not face court after the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the case.

The CPS said it did not have enough evidence to proceed but Steve's mother, Nina, expressed her disbelief at the decision.

"Our boy is walking around with half a head - what more evidence do they need?" said Mrs Gator, 47. "I can't believe it."

Mr Gator, of Romford, Essex, was left seriously brain damaged following the attack as he made his way home from work on January 15.

The two thugs started screaming taunts and abuse at him about his cousin but when he confronted them he was hit so hard he fell back and smashed his head on the pavement.

He's just a different boy. His sparkle is totally gone. He used to be so independent but he can't work any more and he can't drive. He's got half-a-head and he's completely lost his confidence.

Nina Gator, the mother of assault victim Steve Gator

He was left in a coma for two weeks and his brain swelled so much surgeons removed the front half of his skull just hours after he was admitted.

He now suffers frequent seizures, has difficulty talking, and lost much of his memory.

Mr Gator now lives with his mother, who is his main carer as he can no longer work.

Mrs Gator said: "He's just a different boy. His sparkle is totally gone. He used to be so independent but he can't work any more and he can't drive. He's got half a head and he's completely lost his confidence.

"There's absolutely nothing protecting his brain now - it's just under his skin. We're waiting for surgery for a new skull plate to be put in."

A Havering police spokesman said they had no plans to look for any other attackers in connection with the case, adding: "We gave the CPS all the evidence available and after reviewing the case they decided not to proceed with it. We adhere to their decision."

Corrine Soanders, the Crown Prosecutor for Havering, said: "Once the CPS had been supplied with all the necessary evidence relevant to this case, a full review showed there was insufficient evidence to provide a realistic prospect of conviction.

"This is a key test which must be met to bring a prosecution and in light of this, the case against the two defendants was discontinued. I apologise to the victim and his family for not conveying this decision to them personally.

"I welcome any questions they may have and will be contacting them shortly to offer further explanation."

Do you think that if this happened in America that those teenagers would have gone free for "lack of evidence?"

We can't believe the justice system in Great Britain actually said they couldn't pursue the case due to "lack of evidence" Are you kidding?!!

The fact that teenagers did this NOT adults and are becoming so violent to crack a mans skull with their HANDS it is so astounding. Just their hands!

Take a good look at that picture. That is what our FUTURE generations are doing to pave the way for the future of the world.

Some might say, "well, it didn't happen in America." Yeah it is, things like this are happening here and everywhere around the world. Everywhere Teenagers are becoming more and more violent. More crimes now are committed by teenagers than adults. It is a scary growing trend. We just watched a video today about the growing trend of organized fight clubs for teenagers. Teens get together after school and fighting, video taping it and putting it on youtube. The fight doesn't end until someone is either beaten into submission or knocked unconscious. Don't think this is real? Just look it up on youtube they say there are thousands of videos like that, and we ourselves have seen some of those videos. This story was being covered because one child was beaten so badly they ended up in the hospital and now over a dozen teens are in custody and the videos have been removed from youtube. However, they did say there are thousands more of videos showing teen violence. This happened in America.

We ask that you please pray for the young man who was injured and that some how some way justice is served and those 2 teen boys pay the consequences for their actions. And pray for the future generations of this world. There are so many lost. If we don't show them the way and teach them, how are they to know there is a BETTER way?
