James O’Keefe Reveals Corruption At The Heart Of The President’s Signature Program

 

 

” James O’Keefe, the guerrilla videographer who helped bring down ACORN (the “community organizing” group that Barack Obama worked for as a lawyer and trainer) and got NPR’s president fired, is back.

This time, his undercover investigators focused on Obamacare’s “navigators,” the nearly 50,000 people who, in the words of the Department of Health and Human Services, “will serve as an in-person resource for Americans who want additional assistance in shopping for and enrolling in plans” on the Obamacare exchanges (at least when they’re finally working). The total value of grants doled out for nonprofits and community organizations to hire navigators has topped $67 million nationwide, and some of the money is going to a group run by ACORN’s highly controversial founder.”

 

   Obama’s cronies from the world of community organizing have merely relocated from ACORN to Obamacare navigation . Here is some of the sage advise offered to the undercover investigator in Texas .

 

“You lie because your premiums will be higher,” one navigator advises an investigator for O’Keefe’s Project Veritas, who tells the worker he sometimes smokes. “Don’t tell them that. Don’t tell ’em.”

 

Here is another gem …

 

” The investigator then poses as a low-income worker at a university who has unreported cash income on the side, worrying about how that might affect his premium subsidies. That’s no problem for a navigator, who says, “Don’t get yourself in trouble by declaring it now.”

“Yeah, it didn’t happen,” another navigator says. One more chimes in: “Never report it.” “

 

   As you can see , the culture of the lie is a mandatory part of Obama’s way of doing business . We are being forced to pay our tax dollars to subsidize bald-faced lies and criminal behavior on behalf of the very authority picking our pocket . You can view the video at our previous post on O’Keefe’s efforts if you haven’t already done so . Be sure and read John Fund’s article in it’s entirety .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bill Ayers, Reincarnated ACORN Ask United Nations To Intervene In Chicago School Closings

 

 

 

 

” Noted American terrorist and left-wing radical Bill Ayers is among the signatories of a letter calling on the United Nations to probe the closing of 49 Chicago elementary schools based on claims that it is causing massive human rights violations.

The “letter of allegation” is 24 pages long and contains 17 footnotes.

The Midwest Coalition for Human Rights sent the missive to the Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights in Geneva, Switzerland this week.

The Coalition is a network of over 50 organizations united to fight “serious human rights violations occurring in the United States.”

A number of individuals and organizations sponsored the letter. In addition to Ayers, others signers of the letter include four people associated with Action Now, an Illinois community-organizing group that split off from ACORN just before it dissolved because of financial problems and scandals.

As Eagnews.org notes, still another endorser is Michael Klonsky, a former leader of Students for a Democratic Society also a former chairman of a Maoist organization called “Communist Party (Marxist Leninist).”

SUNSHINE WEEK: A Look Inside An Obscure Foundation Of Undue Influence

 

 

 

 

 

 

” A powerful group of left-wing activists has leveraged big money, high-level White House access and tax-code loopholes to create a lobbying organization dressed up as an educational nonprofit with the benign name of a household laundry detergent.

The Tides Foundation is a favorite charity of such big-name liberal donors as Teresa Heinz Kerry (ketchup up heiress and wife of Secretary of State John Kerry) and Barbra Streisand. The two have given Tides more than $8.5 million over the years.

And Tides has a lesser-known benefactor: You. From the foundation’s 2009 to 2011 IRS 990 tax returns, the most recent years for which data is available, the government has given Tides some $28 million in grants paid for by American taxpayers.

That grant-making function helps explain Tides’ critical role, not just on the Left but in the White House. It has become a kind of banking operation of the Left.

Indeed, when asked why some of its donors require anonymity, Tides spokesperson Byrne said, “Transparency comes in many forms … The only area where we choose not to disclose information is that of our anonymous donors. In this effort we stand with many longstanding institutions in our field such as RPA, Schwab, Fidelity, etc.”

The analogy is telling: RPA is a marketing firm, of course. Schwab and Fidelity are investment and banking firms.

“The Tides conglomerate is an octopus with hundreds of incubating projects funded by untraceable wealthy foundations,” said Arnold, of Undue Influence. “Now it has promoted itself to a member of the federal government, particularly the White House.” “

Democratic Officials and Activists Linked to ACORN Plead Guilty in Voter Fraud Case

 

 

 

” Thank goodness voter fraud isn’t an issue, or we might have reason to worry about the integrity of the election process. But then again this is New York, so we already know the election process has no integrity.

A total of four Democratic officials and political operatives have now pleaded guilty to voter fraud-related felony charges in an alleged scheme to steal a New York election.

Former Troy Democratic City Clerk William McInerney, Democratic Councilman John Brown, and Democratic political operatives Anthony Renna and Anthony DeFiglio have entered guilty pleas in the case, in which numerous signatures were allegedly forged on absentee ballots in the 2009 Working Families Party primary, the political party that was associated with the now-defunct community group, ACORN.

 

But don’t worry, according to the ACORN gang this is just normal politics that no one cares about.

In November 2009, Democratic operative Anthony DeFiglio told New York State police investigators that faking absentee ballots was a commonplace and accepted practice in political circles, all intended to swing an election.”

“I’ve been fighting along side ACORN on the issues you care about my entire career even before I was an elected official,” he said.

 

 

“In a previously unreleased video footage recently obtained by the Washington Examiner, candidate Barack Obama is featured in a 2007 interview with ACORN, while he was seeking the organization’s endorsement during his campaign for president.

During the interview, Obama reminded the group that he believed in ACORN’s mission and been a loyal partner with the organization his entire career.

“I came out of an organizing grassroots background, that’s what I did three and a half years before I went to law school. That’s the reason I moved to Chicago, is to organize.” Obama stated. “This is something that I know personally.” “

Via Breitbart :

 “Cause of Action, a nonpartisan group that seeks more transparency in government, recently discovered e-mails through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) that show linkages between top National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) executives and ACORN, the liberal community organizing group Andrew Breitbart helped expose and eventually put out of business.”
