ACORN and SEIU: Anatomy of a Shakedown
Big Government ^ | Spet. 27, 2009 | Anita Moncrief

Posted on 09/27/2009 12:00:23 PM PDT by patriotgal1787

As various charges and complaints have materialized over the years, it seems that ACORN uses the communities in which they are located as staging grounds for national power grabs. With multiple states and entities receiving federal funds, ACORN plays to win. Aiding ACORN are groups like DEMO’s, the Democracy Alliance, Soros Open Society Institute, and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU). The Washington Examiner has covered ACORN’s: “Muscle for the Money” program:

Anita Moncrief, who is a friend of ours both personally and of our radio program has come forward with what she knows about ACORN, the SEIU, and the implications /connections they have to Barack Obama.

Her piece appears today in BIG GOVERNMENT, the website that blew open the scandal of ACORN with the videotapes of Hannah Giles and James O'Keefe posing as pimp and prostitute.

Please read this carefully and either post about it and/or pass it along to your mail list. If this doesn't have the potential to help connect the dots and bring down this Administration, I don't know what will. Go ANITA!!!

It's almost sad that all the fools in their down lines (pyramid scheme type) are the suckers being used by those at the top.

They are useful idiots and that is all.

Some appear to be waking up however.

9/27/09

“News just on FOX: An Acorn Field Director has “flipped”, is now working with Nevada Attorney General on case against ACORN. Nevada Acorn offices raided, field manuals on how to commit Voter Registration Fraud seized.”

Before anybody gets too excited about the FOX report, it is totally unsupported at this time.

The octopus that is ACORN et al is getting tangled up in it's own tentacles.

Please start adding the keyword coi to ACORN articles: ACORN renamed itself to Community Organizations International.

Thanks for the heads-up. I did a keyword search for Anita Moncrief, and came up with nada. So I posted. Difficult to know what keywords to type in, so I guess it’s pretty commonplace to repost an item already up.

Still, this one’s worth a repost, doncha think?

Thanks!

Not saying it’s a repost, just that people haven’t caught on to the ACORN name change yet. The hydra has grown a new head.

So many corrupt liberal organizations to look at... so little time. O’Keefe has decades of great reporting ahead...

ACORN and SEIU seem to be the mixing pot for the cooking up of Hussein’s civilian army. ACORN looks to be political wing, commissars and cadres, while SEIU is developing the foot soldiers and street fighters.

“ACORN’s so-called ‘muscle for money’ strategy extorts ‘donations’ from targeted government and corporate officials by offering them Mafia-like protection from protests by the group’s own paid thugs, many of them convicted felons. ACORN has also blocked bank mergers until the targeted financial institutions agreed to change their lending policies to ACORN’s satisfaction.”

Odd how the witch, Maureen Dowd never thought this was worth reporting on - non or the "we suck more" people thought of it.... Too busy trying to find a Republican jaywalking...

Oh you must have missed the end of it. The link to the fox video was found, and the raid was last year. Fox news was covering the trial. The trial is tomorrow. The field manuals.....well, they are real. Would love to see breitbart and glen bleck give those the coverage they deserve.
