ACORN Cracks...Dissolves National Structure

Not going away totally, just running back into the shadows.

"Consistent with what the internal reccomendations have been, each of the states are developing plans for reconstitution independence and self-sufficiency," said the official, citing ACORN's "diminished resources, damage to the brand, unprecedented attacks."

The new organizations, he said "will be constituted under new banners and new bylaws and new governance," he said, consistent with the recommendations of an outside panel.

Much of the group's strength lay in its local chapters in places like New York, which appear to be continuing to operate as normal. New York's City Hall News reported today that the local group there had re-emerged under the name "New York Communities for Change."

They'll be a bit harder to ferret out and to tie together when one chapter does something awful (and you know they will) but the fact that they were forced into this is a great victory for Breitbart and company. A little over a year after seeing one of their kindred spirits settle into the White House, ACORN has had to run off and hide.

As always, vigilance is the key.

Has everyone forgot about the billions of $$ ACORN and all it's sister organizations got from the Stimulus?

Make no mistake, the voter fraud apparatus of the Democrat party is alive and well and well-funded. It doesn't matter if they change their name or close some offices, 'ACORN' will still exist and thrive.

35 kathysaysso: "Who in government has the intestinal fortitude to stamp these cockroaches out?!"

This is why 2010 and the insertion of Tea Party-ists is so essential. The nation must purge these entities, and the standard GOP fare has failed miserably at this. It just hasn't had the nerve to attack out of fear of the PC police and the Legacy Media that feeds it.

Now is the time to strike. The Legacy Media is hemorrhaging customers and credibility and the current government does not have the consent of the governed. Now is when the tidal wave can be energized, the old guard pushed aside with momentum and stronger ideals. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform Ranking Member Darrell Issa (R-CA) did some very good work investigating ACORN even before O'Keefe et al., so keep him around; but other "leaders" need to go.

Posted by: The Chicken at February 22, 2010 04:00 PM (IhQuA)

41 I don't see the benefit.

Crack dealers and pimps will still get help from democrats in cheating taxes and setting up dummy businesses. And when the GOP tries to reform things, people will wind up disappearing. The dems know that if you keep all the hidden wheels greasy, there will be tons of parties deeply invested in more and more local democrats. That's why inner cities infected with community organizers are infected with murder, rape, drugs, whores, and poverty.

ACORN now goes under a bunch of different names, but the checks for the feds to pay for tax assistance, bad loans, fraud, that's easily updated. All we got was another glimpse of the way politics work in the crumbling cities of our country. but we already knew that. Unless Eric Holder investigated the organization in a timely fashion, sending ACORN leaders to prison, the shaming is really irrelevant. we're talking about people who are cool with child prostitition... They are IMMUNE to shaming.

I'm still grateful that Breitbart and O'Keefe are fighting the good fight, but it takes more than great journalism.

50 O/T but huge! From the CBO's website (via Hotair)
This morning the Obama Administration released a description of its health care proposal, and CBO has already received several requests to provide a cost estimate for that proposal. We had not previously received the proposal, and we have just begun the process of reviewing it—a process that will take some time, given the complexity of the issues involved. Although the proposal reflects many elements that were included in the health care bills passed by the House and the Senate last year, it modifies many of those elements and also includes new ones. Moreover, preparing a cost estimate requires very detailed specifications of numerous provisions, and the materials that were released this morning do not provide sufficient detail on all of the provisions. Therefore, CBO cannot provide a cost estimate for the proposal without additional detail, and, even if such detail were provided, analyzing the proposal would be a time-consuming process that could not be completed this week.

56 arhooley is right.

One thing you can do that always helps is to take pictures of the length of the line.

If the lines are shorter, email them to the GOP in your locality, so they legal team can use that information to fight efforts to keep polls open late (of course, this is in certain locations where fraud is more likely to occur). If the lines are really long and it's anywhere near poll closing, call the GOP operation so they can send a few lawyers or poll watchers and see what the fuck the problem is.

If you see anything weird, try to get the names and cell phone pics and write down times, dates, etc, and just email it in. Not to the election judges, but to the party.

When you vote, try to be familiar with proper judge procedure. Are they supposed to run your name against a list of people who already voted absentee? Are they supposed to check ID? If they don't do it, ask them why they didn't do it. Let them know you are paying attention and use their name. Write down discrepancies and send it in. Keep it neat, short, easy to read.

a lot of the fraud is facilitated by election judges in inner cities 'forgetting' to check absentee rolls or check lists or otherwise just making it a lot easier for fraud to occur. Everyone should be on the ball these days and if an election judge (often just a liberal kook, often just an honorable citizen) isn't doing the right thing, they should be asked about it.

96 OT: "Shock" or "Predictable as the tides"?


During the past nine months, credit card companies jacked up interest
rates, created new fees and cut credit lines. They also closed down
millions of accounts. So a law hailed as the most sweeping piece of
consumer legislation in decades has helped make it more difficult for
millions of Americans to get credit, and made that credit more
expensive.It wasn't supposed to be this way.

101 That's a goal. What's needed is a plan. How to actually do it?I guess a start would be to find your local ACORN or ex-ACORN office (thank you, paper phonebooks!) and drive down and see what name they've got on their door. Send it to Andy, find out what kind of funding it's getting from your state, county, or city.
Posted by: arhooley at February 22, 2010 04:29 PM (khM4t)

103 Has anyone given any thought to how many of the Election Laws MSNBC violates with it's one sided daily diatribe?
Obama went after the SCOTUS when they ruled against election laws limiting corporate contributions, based on the priviledged exemption of the corporate medias, of which the left has a monopoly in the big three networks. Fox news spins both directions on cable networks but still fails to reach large segments of the population in non-cable areas.
But MSNBC continues to control the dialogue for many Americans in favor of the DNC. They no longer even PRETEND to report news or be objective. They ARE "Air America" with no limitations.
So, WTF? How can they be forced into financial bankruptcy (to match the moral bankruptcy they've exhibited for years) any quicker?

Yes, there were times, I'm sure you knew, When I bit off more than I could chew, But through it all, when there was doubt, I ate it up and spit it out. I faced it all and I stood tall And did it my way. I've loved, I've laughed and cried, I've had my fill - my share of birdies. But now, as tears subside, I feel it all so absurdly.To think I did all that, And may I say, not in a shy way - Oh no. Oh no, not me. I did it my way. For what is a man?

115 http://www.imao.us/index.php/2010/02/california-secession/



So Arnold Schwarzenegger is going after the Tea Party. Well, California is kinda in a big hole and they can’t do anything about it, so you expect them to lash out at everyone. There’s really nothing anyone can do, so I’m starting to hear talk of secession– not from California itself, but from the federal government because if they could just plain get rid of California that would be at least one less liability to worry about. They figure they’ll just have a press conference with Arnold and it will seem he’s going along with it because no one can understand what he’s saying.



FEDERAL GOVERNMENT: “We are here because California has announced it plans to secede.”



ARNOLD: “What? What are you saying? You are not doing the sense-making!”



FEDS: “We’ve decided that California’s position is too entrenched, so it will be a quagmire to fight and take it back.”



ARNOLD: “No! We surrender! You take us back!”



FEDS: “So we will no longer be involved with California, and they will be fully autonomous.”



ARNOLD: “No! This wrong! You are crazy person!”



FEDS: “Good luck, Nation of California. We’ll check up on you in ten years or so.”



ARNOLD: “What? Hear me now and understand me as soon as possible: We want back! Take us back! Or at least let me resign as governor and flee the state first!”

178 On the topic of breaking up and cracking up, how's Susan Sarandon doing? Very well, apparently.

"Oscar winning actress Susan Sarandon has had a bad time of it lately.
The actress recently separated from her long time partner, actor Tim
Robbins. Sarandon attended the third anniversary of The Box in New
York's Lower East Side.A

A transsexual cabaret performer named Rose Wood engaged in projectile vomiting on stage and hit Sarandon with it .

Standing nearby were Scarlett Johansson and Liev Schreiber.

According to Wood it was not intended as an affront to the actress and she didn't take it that way.

'Apparently
[Sarandon] got a big kick out of it. She squealed with surprise and
loved it when several handsome gentlemen wiped it off of her. She had a
ball! I saw her assistant downstairs afterward, and he was moved by it!
She was in great spirits,' Wood told the New York Press."

The elite truly are better than us morons. If it had been one of us, we'd have been all grossed out. Hell, if it had been one of us, we wouldn't have gone to a theater to watch a transsexual projectile vomit.

195 Scott Brown will vote for the jobs bill...breaking on Fox now

85 billion dollar bill would have won 80 votes in the Senate, but Brown will provide the key vote for a 15 billion dollar bill. The same old 'bridges' bullshit is involved again...
The Reid bill includes a tax credit for employers who hire new workers,
measures aimed at improving access to capital for small businesses, an
extension of the current federal subsidy formula for road and bridge
repairs carried out by states, and a modest expansion of federally
subsidized bonds to help local governments raise funds for
infrastructure projects.

Anymore, whenever I see the word bridges, I smell methane.

Yep, conservatives just heard what they wanted to hear about Scott Brown. He said his mentor is McCain, crossing the aisle to pass legislation so long as it doesn't duplicate Mitt's State Care, doubling Massachusetts health care taxes that have already doubled since Mitt signed his package into law. But Brown's constituents want government projects like the clunker car rebates. So when it comes to things like Stimulus Bail-Outs or fraudulent Job Bills, Brown predicted his sentiment to vote with the progressive socialist bipartisan GOP.

Remember that Romney promised to merge industry with government in order to produce "good jobs in America" his last month of campaigning in 2008. It isn't as if Brown is voting so differently than Mitt promised to lobby Congress had he won office.

210 Brown is from Mass. No matter how much things might be going are way it's still a Dem heavy area and those habits die hard. Since it's (only) a 15 billion dollar bill we could see this as a deal. Not saying I like it but he still has to represent his district and, being dems, they want more more more!

Yup. That's why I put some more info 'out there'. I kinda seems to me that the (D)'s would rather continue unemployment benefits past the duration instead of come up with an initiative that might actually do something. So voting for the cheaper bill makes sense. Until the sweet, acrid scent of warming tar and the faint dust from millions of chicken feathers begins to fill the hollowed chambers.

I was laughing cause the guy sorta just didn't sit right with Beck and everyone jumped all over Beck for his screaming about not being able to jump on the Scott Brown train. I remember posting here that I felt as though Coakley was practically throwing the election to Brown and it made me uncomfortable. These are formidable foes. They managed to trick top notch republicans (mitt and rudy) into running their candidate with their letter next to the name and having the conservatives/republicans come out in force to support said candidate and look, it's truly a hollow victory. While the republicans/conservatives were celebrating the guy and his truck, the dems/libs who deliberately stayed home in droves must have had a great time sipping their champagne and laughing out loud.

I have not been following this too closely but didn't Reid have a bi partisan bill that the republicans were happy with and then when he sent it to the WH that group said "no way, that's not what WE want" so Reid then threw out all the bi partisan work and brought back his own bill? So then Brown didn't even question where the bi partisan bill was, he simply caved. Doesn't feel right to me, there are no accidents with this bunch. This is planned like a war and the republicans and conservatives don't even realize it.

You know, art for people that are too "elite" to know that getting vomited on is not art, and is indeed, a health issue.

And I should know. I have a cousin who teaches it at a University level. Luckily, Mom did some smart breeding and we don't have the looney liberal gene in my sector of the family.

234 Basically, donations are drying up, the national HQ under close scrutiny and the locals are going to pretend to be new organizations and go on doing the same dam things while the national leadership starts acting more like heads of a drug cartel and keeping out of the spotlight.

This means it will be harder to keep track of them, hopefully there will be a national watchdog website set up to keep track of which organizations are just morphed ACORNS masquerading under other names.

Anyone with a line into some funding that would be amenable to sponsoring a site dedicated to watching these rats as they scurry in the wainscotting?
