Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead: The House Has Voted to Defund ACORN

I’ve never been so frustrated.  I just wrote an entire post about the vote by the House to defund ACORN and the when I clicked “post” it erased everything and posted a blank article.  I have a killer headache, so I’m not about to retype all of that, so I’m going to have to break my number 1 rule and….. **shutter** just post a link.  I can’t believe this is happening.  Don’t disown me readers, it will never happen again.

If your representative is one of the 75 clueless congressmen and women that voted NOT to defund ACORN, please give their office a call.  If they haven’t seen the light yet, it’s going to take some serious discussions.

Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com: Check This Out!

Featured Blog Winners!

Andrew Breitbart opened up his latest venture, BigGovernment.com, by releasing the tapes of the ACORN controversy stright to the site.  A pretty good way to make an entrance, huh?

BigGovernment.com has since been the hub for news on the ACORN scandal, causing the site to explode onto the blogosphere.  The site features about 10 contributors as of now, and seems to me like it will be more conservative version of the Huffington Post, which was also primarily created by Andrew Breitbart.  Contributors included: Creator Andrew Breitbart, Editor in Chief Mike Flynn, the “prostitute” in the ACORN videos Hannah Giles, Townhall.com contributor Ken Blackwell, DC attorney and journalist Ken Klukowski, President and CEO of FreedomWorks Matt Kibbe, radio show host Dana Loesch, chairmen of the Illinois Chamber of Commerce Health Care Council Doug O’Brien, and the “pimp” in the ACORN videos James O’Keefe.  Quite a group, wouldn’t you say?

The ACORN Prostitute Scandal: It’s Our Responsibility to Inform the Public, How To Be The Difference

America,

It’s all of our responsibilities, whether conservative, liberal, independent, moderate, clueless, etc., to do what is right for our great nation.  Our founding fathers worked hard to create the America we are blessed to have today, and I honestly think they are rolling in their graves at the corruption and fraud that exists in our government.  ACORN’s been caught advising a prostitute on how to evade her taxes and keep her operation a secret, and billions of dollars are thrown away daily on worthless pet projects throughout the country and we’ve got to do something about it.  The mainstream media, including major news networks CNN, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, etc., have not mentioned a word of the ACORN scandal.  They’ve had since 9 AM this morning to issue a statement, roll it across the news ticker, or anything at all to anounce to their viewers what is going on with our tax dollars and they have yet to do so.  Just to be clear: The major networks, with the exception to Fox News, have not reported ONE WORD on the ACORN scandal.

As citizens who love our country and don’t want to see our tax dollars funneled into corrupt organizations, we’ve got to STAND UP.  Don’t just watch from your chair and say “Well man, that’s unfortunate”.  If 99% of the media as a whole won’t put the pressure on our government, Democrats and Republicans alike, we’ve got to do it ourselves.  Don’t think you can’t make a difference.  If we all stand up against this, we won’t just make a difference, we’ll be the difference.

How to be the Difference:

  • Tell everyone you know of the ACORN story.  If you don’t want to come straight out and say “There’s a video of ACORN telling a prostitute how to cheat her taxes”, simply ask “Have you heard about ACORN” and go with it.  Totally painless, and extremely powerful.  Nothing travels faster than word of mouth.
  • Use Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, etc., to your advantage.  Twitter statuses are perfect to get the word out.  Currently, “ACORN” is barely in the top 10 subjects most mentioned in Twitter updates according to Trending Topics.  Clearly, the country does yet know.  Relay the message to everyone to tweet the story over Twitter.  If enough do it, the message will get out.  You should put a link to an article on the issue in your update, simply copy and paste one of the articles below into your Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter status.  Here are some you can use:
  • E-mail the story to everyone.  Leave it in comments on blog posts about relevant topics with one of the above links.
  • If you have a blog, by all means write about this issue.  Even a blog with two faithful readers will influence those two to stand up.  If your a member of any forums at all, find where this story will fit in and post a link to one of the above articles.
  • Send this article to everyone so they’ll know what do.  It’s not about how many readers I can get through this.  It’s for the good of America and our future.  If the only thing that happens because of this is the termination of the two employees, then no one will have learned anything and it will surely happen again.  If for some reason your anti The Conservative Journal, I don’t care if you copy and paste this and post it on your blog or e-mail it to a friend.  I’d love to get credit for it, but If you will only post or send this if I don’t get any it’s worth the loss.

Please do this for the good of America.  I’m making a commitment to do all that I can to get this story out.  I’m going to keep drilling this to you and other readers of this blog daily.  It’s necessary that this story gets out if we want any of it to get better.  Let your voice be heard and be the difference.

The Big Glenn Beck Story: ACORN Giving A Prostitute Tax Evading Advice, Caught on Tape!

I wonder if these people are prostitutes on the side?

I wonder if these people are prostitutes on the side?

I raced home early today to watch today’s episode of Glenn Beck because I simply couldn’t wait to watch it tonight.  I Googled the scandal today during lunch and was pretty shocked at what I saw.  I’ve known ACORN was corrupt since we started hearing about their “work” a few years ago, but I never knew they were this corrupt.  I don’t know if this is an isolated incident (I mean I imagine they don’t get too many clients like this), but if the prostitute’s request went through this time without a hitch, I can’t imagine what other evasion they’ve guided along.

For those that don’t know what’s going on (Unless you watch Fox News or have Googled the scandal directly, you probably don’t) here’s a little recap:  Two aspiring journalists went into ACORN’s Baltimore office acting as a pimp and a prostitute in order to get tips on how to cheat their taxes, among other things.  Much to even my surprise, the two ACORN employees helped the two on everything they asked.  And though one did at one point say that their actions were illegal (She then said that she wouldn’t tell anyone, she didn’t even know as far as anyone else was concerned), the other encouraged her along and told her not to be ashamed of anything she did.  That’s pretty much the bare-bones of the story.

This is a real problem.  I’m not linking Barack Obama to this event in any way, but his ties to ACORN are deep: he used to be a lawyer for them and in December of 2007 he told a gathering of ACORN members that their input would be used during his term in office.  Not only that, but ACORN was listed in the stimulus package for a nice sum of nearly $10 billion.  So let’s sort this out one more team: a government funded organization that has full support of our COMMANDER IN CHIEF gives tax cheating advice to prostitutes.  That’s pretty much all there is to say.

I’m sure more revelations will present themselves before this story runs its course.  However, if you want to see anything at all about the developments you’ll have to tune into Fox News.  I’m not just saying that because Fox News is the only cable news channel that reports the news.  I’m saying it because as I type this post, the only news channel that has reported even one word about it is Fox News.  Not one mention by CNN, MSNBC, HLN, or any other news channel.  This is big, big news, how can they expect to remain credible when they haven’t covered it in any way?

As I said earlier, I’m sure we’ll hear more from this story and I’ll be here to keep you updated with my opinion along the way.  Voice your concerns directly to ACORN by looking up your states office and phone number here.  If the Mainstream Media isn’t putting the pressure on them, someone’s got too.

**Piece of irony: A friend of mine in Mississippi text me today and said: “Funny thing is, our ACORN office is on Hooker Street.”  Just a bit of humor to keep you from going insane now that you know your tax payer dollars could be going to help prostitutes evade their taxes.
