My syndicated column today continues the theme I blogged about two days ago in the "Rule of the Mob" post. Keep an eye on next week's G20 summit in London. Thousands of anti-capitalism zealots will be amassing there to intimidate and harass bankers. The vandalizing of the Scottish ex-banking executive's home in Edinburgh is just... Read More
I'm scheduled to talk about the GIVE/SERVE Act on Glenn Beck's show at around 5:30pm Eastern. (Update: Watch the vid at Hot Air.) Quin Hilyer takes a closer look at the creepy national service expansion plans in today's DC Examiner, and posts an update on one troublesome provision: Alas, every last cent of the $6... Read More
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti An ACORN fund-raiser on the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals? I'm kidding, right? Nope. And a GOP Senator approves of this? I'm kidding, right? Alas, it is true.
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Fox News reports that ACORN will be one of a plethora of left-wing groups "helping out" with the Census. But of course. The question is: Will the worriers just worry -- or will they do something about it? The Bush White House k
It was a beclowning. A cable castration. Sacrificial slaughter. Sadomasochist programming. But more than anything else, the Jon Stewart/Jim Cramer show was an object lesson. An object lesson in how the one thing the media/infotainment world loves to cover most is itself, itself, itself. Here is a screenshot of the top half of Memeorandum, the... Read More
Militants.
As if ACORN's shakedown artists and thugs weren't causing enough trouble, now they're occupying public school board meeting rooms to prevent government educators from cutting costs, firing useless teachers, and dealing with financial realities. This is now the second "civil disobedience" campaign waged by the entitlement-mongers. Our Community Organizer-in-Chief, who spoke so voluminously yesterday about... Read More
The sound of silence.
With the impending closure of the Rocky Mountain News and the likely folding of the San Francisco Chronicle, several MSM types are lecturing conservatives that they will rue the death of newspaper journalism as we know it. I came from the newspaper business, still make a living as a syndicated newspaper columnist, and have many... Read More
If it isn't fraudulent ACORN foreclosure "victims" siphoning off taxpayer funds, it's well-off home borrowers in Nancy Pelosi's backyard demanding a piece of the mortgage bailout pie. Moochers to the left of me, moochers to the far left... Legislation heading to the floor of the House today would help more Bay Area homeowners qualify for... Read More
My column this week expands on my debunking of ACORN's sob story foreclosure "victims." In the latest developments on the Baltimore ACORN break-in, ACORN activist Donna Hanks was arrested and criminally charged. Just one more on top of her other brushes with the law (which the Washington Post and others have yet to report). The... Read More
On Feb. 18, I warned about the ACORN civil disobedience mob working in ideological tandem with Barack Obama to bully Washington into passing a massive new foreclosure prevention/mortgage entitlement scheme. On Feb. 20, I noted that ACORN garnered nationwide media attention for breaking and entering into a foreclosed home in Baltimore at 315 South Ellwood... Read More
Criminal.
On Wednesday, I said prepare for lawlessness as ACORN's civil disobedience mob steps up pressure for President Obama's mortgage entitlement expansion. Well, are you ready, Baltimore? (Hat tip - Jeff Quinton) ACORN's troops are breaking the padlocks and breaking into homes. And this is just the start. Caution: OBAMACORN at work. Taxpayer-subsidized anarchy is on... Read More
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti My syndicated column today looks at the massive mortgage entitlement campaign launched by President Obama today -- and the concurrent, anti-foreclosure bullying campaign launched by ACORN. I've been warning about this for weeks (see here, here, here, and here) -- and in particular, I've been blasting the Republicans for playing right... Read More
Shakedown. Payback. Repeat.
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Yet another timely reminder to GOP Senators: Government bailouts = Left-wing boondoggles. It's true of the Generational Theft Act of 2009. It was true of the banking bailouts last year. Dan Mitchell of Cato sends the following new tidbit about bailout beneficiary Bank of ACORN and fraud racketeer ACORN: This is... Read More
Erick Erickson at RedState shines light on a $90 million set-aside in the "stimulus" for the left-wing Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, which is buried in the larger Boob Tube bailout for digital TV: As I said last week in my ACORN column: Any self-respecting Senate Republican who would vote for this multi-billion-dollar slush fund...

Stimulus slush fund for housing entitlement thugs by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2008 From tiny acorns, mighty government debacles grow. House GOP Leader John Boehner on Monday rightly sounded the alarm over billions in stimulus tax dollars that could potentially go to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. But the Republican leadership... Read More
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti On Monday, I noted GOP House Speaker John Boehner's warning about the ObamACORN funding provisions in the House version of the Generational Theft Act of 2009. As expected, the slush fund/payback program for the left-wing fraudsters is still in there. Here's the direct link to the section in H.R. 1. And... Read More
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti House GOP leader John Boehner's office reports that the left-wing voter fraud/illegal alien/housing entitlement racketeers at ACORN "could get billions" more in federal taxpayer funding from the Democrats' stimulus bill. Here: Not so "incredible." More like "inevitable." As in inevitable lard-up. Funds for this purpose were authorized in the Housing and... Read More
What do Jesse Jackson, ACORN, La Raza, Hank Paulson, and the enviro-lobby have in common? Citibank. Matthew Vadum has the lowdown. Hat tip: Stacy McCain. *** Related:
...not by the federal government, alas, but by the U.S. Catholic Bishops. Good for them: The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) has not yet been able to determine if grants made to ACORN were used for fraudulent voter registration, but has cut off all funding to the community organizing group, Bishop Robert Morin announced...

All in the family.
Breaking in Pittsburgh this afternoon: Testimony from a former Project Vote worker that brings together the ObamACORN family all together again... Moncrief was fired for putting personal expenses on the organization's credit card. (Top ACORN brass were involved in
Answer: Only when race card-playing Barack Obama, opponent of photo ID requirements at the voting booth, is worried about security at his Election Night party in Chicago. This is just too, too rich.
The NYTimes (!) connects some dots.
Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Well, lookee here. The New York Times, of all places, reports on an internal assessment of ACORN's shady relationships with its affiliates and its inextricable ties to Obama's old employers at Project Vote. For months, ACORN watchers have laid out the incestuous ties between the two groups. Now, ACORN's own inside... Read More
La-dee-da.
I'll save you the time and energy you'd waste reading the New York Times' CYA editorial on ACORN. Three syllables (four if you're Joe Biden): La-dee-da. The Times sees nooooo problem at all with the massive, nationwide voter registration/voter fraud racket led by ACORN and its compatriots. In fact, they want more! Republicans aren’t saying...

Finally. Let's hope it's not too late. (link) Four letters, people: R-I-C-O. In Bidenworld, that's three letters. :)

Vote From Home hoaxers.
Early this morning, I told you about the suspicious houseful of out-of-state Democrat activists studying abroad who registered to vote, received absentee ballots, and in some cases, voted despite dubious residency and having no plans to return to Ohio -- first reported by Shelby Holliday and Tiffany Wilson at Palestra.net. Now comes official word that... Read More
Shake it up.
As always, my advice for tonight's debate is to lower your expectations. And: Have a stiff drink handy. Happily, a reader in Denver e-mailed the perfect recipe. I'm going to go out and buy the ingredients ASAP: Bottoms up!
Something smells at 2885 Brownlee Avenue in Columbus, Ohio. I strongly recommend that the Ohio Republican Party get on the case before it's too late. Today's the last day to challenge voters who registered early in Ohio before the run up to Election Day. Here's the stench: An entire houseful of young, non-Ohioan Democrat activists... Read More
"The bureaucrats' lament."
Allahpundit's got the lowdown on a Sixth Circuit court ruling tonight, which orders fraud-friendly Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner to implement a new system to verify voter registrations. Darke GOP has quick analysis of the decision (hat tip - Patrick Poole): A 3-judge panel of the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals recently vacated a temporary... Read More
The Buckeye Institute has filed a RICO suit against ACORN in Ohio. This should be done in every one of the states where ACORN "franchises" operate. Details: The Buckeye Institute, a Columbus-based think tank, today filed a state RICO action against the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) on behalf of two Warren...

Photoshop credit: Leo Alberti Like I said last week: When it rains, it pours. We're drowning in a flash flood of ACORN voter fraud horror stories. Barack Obama and his followers remain in denial. How many thousands of bogus applications do they need to see before they put down their race card and acknowledge this... Read More
Dude, where's my bailout?
McCain wants to buy up individual mortgages and play loan servicer-in-chief for homeowners underwater. Obama wants to put a 90-day freeze on foreclosures and prolong the pain for short-term political gain. Pander twin powers, activate: Why stop at 90 days, Barry? Your old friends at ACORN demand a one-year foreclosure moratorium. Why not two years... Read More
Bad company.
If you want to know why see-sawing John McCain has had to be goaded, prodded, begged, and dragged into spotlighting Barack Obama's radical ACORN roots, here's your answer: Turns out John McCain had no problem calling ACORN members his friends during his ill-fated illegal alien shamnesty crusade. Ugh. Here's a February 2006 press release trumpeting... Read More
"Obama's ties to ACORN run long and deep."
Obama's ties to ACORN run long and deep. At last, the McCain camp informs the public: Too bad they didn't use reader Blind Mule's appropriately redesigned ACORN logo. ACORN stands for Association of Corrupted Organizations for Registration of Non-Eligible Voters. Photoshop: Blind Mule *** The campaign press release... ARLINGTON, VA -- Today, McCain-Palin 2008 released... Read More
"The ACORN people are everywhere."
NYPost's Jeane MacIntosh is doing great work exposing ACORN's standard operating procedures in Ohio. The latest: Just doing the thug thizzle that ACORN and Obama know so well. *** More: New charges hanging over ACORN in Pennsylvania.
"I can't even count how many registrations I filled out!"
Remember what I wrote last month? "Watch Ohio." Well, there's news breaking tonight -- and it's good news for election integrity. A federal district court judge has found Democrat Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner guilty of violating federal election laws. The ruling goes to the heart of the ACORN-centered voter fraud epidemic spreading across the... Read More

I've mentioned Palestra.net reporter Shelby Holliday's excellent work interviewing the Homeless People for Obama riff-raff in Ohio on this blog and in my column. (See here and here.) Wouldn't you know it: I am now being accused of RAAAAAACISM for repeating the phrase one of those homeless people used in his endorsement of Obama. That's... Read More
Dawn of the Dead Voters, continued.
My syndicated column today spotlights all of the latest ACORN voter fraud outbreaks, including yesterday's ACORN office raid in Nevada. I filed the column before authorities had released those outrageous details of how "lazy crackheads" at a local prison climbed up the ACORN ladder. In other new developments, the Cuyahoga County Election Board has just... Read More
Dawn of the Democrats.
I need a chuckle. Don't you? Will at American Elephants sent me a perfect photoshop for all of the latest voter fraud stories involving ACORN and dead voters. The Dems have the zombie vote (and the "Lazy Crackhead" vote) all locked up:
“Who are we? ACORN! What do we want? Justice! When do we want it? Now!”
In between listening to debate bloviations, I'm perusing the application and affidavit for the search warrant in the Las Vegas ACORN raid case. You can read it here. My favorite part: The section detailing how Nevada ACORN hired inmates as canvassers. One of them is spilling the beans on his colleagues, whom he called "lazy... Read More
Just across the wire: Stay tuned. Via commenter Will Amos, more details:
The fix is in.
I wrote a special column for the NYPost today about how ACORN snagged a piece of the bailout pie. Although House Republicans stripped an overt subsidy to Barack Obama's left-wing housing entitlement and fraud-enabling friends at ACORN, they rolled over to the group's demands for radical "loan modification" and foreclosure mitigation measures that spell more...

I've been telling you to keep an eye on Ohio's voter fraud-friendly Democrat Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner. Good news: A judge in the Buckeye State is keeping an eye on her, too. And keeping her in check. The GOP just won a very significant court round against her: Now, it's time to turn up... Read More
Plus: More voter fraud advisories.
Yesterday, I introduced you to the Homeless Ohioans for Obama voter registration drive that has fraud written all over it. There's even more "thug thizzlin'" -- to quote the above registered homeless voter for Obama -- going on.
