ACORN was the community agitating group that worked for liberal causes and helped people to register to vote multiple times. It is the group that was allegedly disbanded because its workers across the nation were caught on video telling people how to lie in order to hide illegal activities and avoid paying taxes. Acorn was “destroyed” by these actions.
The videos in question were shot by James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. O’Keefe has been doing these kinds of stings for a few years and has caught a lot of wrongdoing.
O’Keefe has set his sights on the navigators of Obamacare. In his most recent videos an investigator records workers telling people how to scam the law. A navigator tells the investigator not to report he is a smoker or he will pay a higher premium (“You lie because your premiums will be higher”). A navigator also tells the investigator, who claims to have unreported income that might affect his subsidies, not to report it now.
“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.”
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.” National Review
It looks like the name has changed but the players are still the same.
Not only that, the lies and the cheating are still the same. These people should be in jail.
Of course it goes without saying that this is all by design…

The global warming zealots have been running around for a long time telling us the science is settled and that we need to buck up and submit to the stupidity that will cost us a fortune and have no measurable affect on the climate. After a long period of no warming they started using the phrase climate change so that Al Gore could continue to rake in billions of dollars with this scam.
Even after the scientists were caught lying about global warming we were told to just ignore the man behind the curtain and submit to the global warming gods. After all, how can we argue with all those scientists.
I have argued with them for a long time. I pointed out that they had something to gain by continuing the charade because they keep getting money if they keep saying it exists.
Interestingly, a group of scientists has come forward to tell us that not all of the science world is on board with global warming and that it is not really anything to worry about. They even point out many of the items I claimed when I argued against the hoax.
These scientists do not believe the science is settled and they believe there is nothing to worry about.
Don’t expect the mush filled heads of the adherents of the Church of Global Warming to believe this or to give these scientists credit.
Only scientists who agree with them are credible and deserve to be listened to.
This is how science works in the liberal world. They claim an issue is settled and refuse to hear anything else contrary to their beliefs. Then they stick their fingers in their ears and sing la,la,la.
They will soon devise another climate scam to bilk governments out of the people’s money.

While a record number of people are on food stamps the number of obese children is increasing. There is actually no food stamp program now as people receive debit cards to use taxpayer money to buy food and then use their own money to buy tobacco, liquor, and lottery tickets. While many people work two jobs to make ends meet others are living off the food welfare program and enjoying vacation time along the way. Hell, if you have no food expense then it is easy to go on vacation. And when one considers that a number of people on food welfare have children in school getting free or reduced breakfast and lunch (two meals a day provided by taxpayers that ends up in the trash) then the amount of food that can be used to barter increases.
Yes, the food welfare program is also a bartering system where people use their debit card to buy authorized items and then sell them to get some spending money. Those $150 kicks and $200 Tommy Jeans have to be paid for.
This program is under attack, as it should be, and there are plans to cut back on the record 40 MILLION people (up to 44 MILLION for the last few months) receiving food welfare, a number that skyrocketed under Barack O’Bama. It would seem the folks at the Department of Agriculture want the billions of dollars spent on food welfare to go to other things.
I agree. The program should be cut and there should be a definite criteria list used to qualify people. Folks who have cell phones (then again, poor people get them from the government too), cable TV, big screen TVs and several cars should be excluded or severely reduced. People on food welfare think they are entitled to it and have no shame in getting it even if they can afford food. One only needs to look at the story of the man who won several million in the lottery and still kept food welfare. He claimed that people would not make him feel bad about continuing to get the welfare.
And I don’t feel bad about taking it away.
We spend way too much money on food welfare (and all welfare) as we enslave people to government programs. I think that cutting food welfare is a great way to make people step up and accept responsibility for their own lives.
It also helps Mrs. Obama and her eat healthy and make fat kids get skinny program. Childhood obesity is a major problem (which means kids get more than enough to eat) so reduce or eliminate the food welfare for many families and they will have to cut back. The kids will be healthier and Mrs. Obama will feel good about herself.
Perhaps they could also reduce the kinds of items people can buy with food welfare. Reduce or eliminate meat and seafood and make them get more fruits and vegetables. No soft drinks or snacks and more healthy food.
This will help the budget and will help the Obama skinny kid initiative and will force people to get off food welfare if they want to be able to choose what they eat.
Get rid of food welfare for our children’s sake.

Those global warming alarmists will do anything to push their hoax.
A WARNING that climate change will melt most of the Himalayan glaciers by 2035 is likely to be retracted after a series of scientific blunders by the United Nations body that issued it.
Two years ago the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a benchmark report that was claimed to incorporate the latest and most detailed research into the impact of global warming. A central claim was the world’s glaciers were melting so fast that those in the Himalayas could vanish by 2035.
In the past few days the scientists behind the warning have admitted that it was based on a news story in the New Scientist, a popular science journal, published eight years before the IPCC’s 2007 report.
It has also emerged that the New Scientist report was itself based on a short telephone interview with Syed Hasnain, a little-known Indian scientist then based at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi.
Hasnain has since admitted that the claim was “speculation” and was not supported by any formal research. If confirmed it would be one of the most serious failures yet seen in climate research. The IPCC was set up precisely to ensure that world leaders had the best possible scientific advice on climate change. [Read the rest at The Times UK]
Best possible advice? It looks like that is not exactly what they are getting. Instead they have hidden declines, manipulated data and warnings based on phone interviews with little known scientists.
The hits just keep on coming.

Well, Im’ convinced- not necessarily about man’s role in all that inconvenient Global Cooling, uh, warming, uh- scratch that- Take Two!
Well, I’m convinced that maybe something might sort of , could be, who knows, maybe be some kind of climate change thingie. Seriously- something HAS to be going on, because they are RIGHT- climate is changing. It’s soooooo weird- every three months or so, the climate either gets colder, or it gets hotter. Plus, we have all these gross thunderstorms and stuff, yuck! I sure hope that guy in the Washington – (what is it, a museum? What? A house? Shut Up!) wherever he is, you know, the guy that said no more taxes ever will just stop this yucky weather- I’ve got to go to the mall.
The thing is, one part out of all of the pap the left has spewed about ‘Global” whatever is that there is money to be made on the backs of all of us schlubs out here- just ask Al Gore. You remember him- the guy who ran for president and couldn’t even carry his own state? Well he’s doing just fine, thanks to the left pushing this scam on the American public.
When Al Gore lost the election in 2000, he was worth about 2 million, but thanks to the left pushing his movie like it was crack, and all the speaking engagements, where he is a legend in his own mind, he is now worth approximately 100 million. That’s real money, even if he was to pay half of that to the federal government, which I am sure he will find a way to avoid. If he bought “Carbon Offsets” to subsidize the “footprint” he leaves with all his SUVs, and his Gulfstream aircraft, he would be a lot poorer, but noooo.
He has privately told people he wants to be the first “Carbon” billionaire, which is a feat, for he produces nothing but hot air, so while he might qualify for a tax credit under “alternative” energy guidelines, all this proves is that liberals do not feel as if they have to actually produce anything in order to enrich themselves- just ride the backs of all of us who do actual work.
Carbon taxes, or Cap and Trade, if you wish to use that disingenuous term, are another way to tax the working man and woman without calling it an outright tax, but when it is in full swing, our energy prices will double. Tell me if you are paying too low a price for your energy now- anybody?- No?- I didn’t think so, but wait-
It wouldn’t just affect your at home energy, but every gallon of gasoline, every bit of energy you use at work- really, truly, anything you do would be taxed and MONITORED. Yes, if you turned your thermostat down lower than Barama decrees, well, there will be a penalty tax attached. Like Pavlov’s Dog, they intend to socially engineer us through aversion techniques- if it hurts your wallet bad enough, you will learn to like freezing, or sweating- depending on, of course, the ” climate change.”
You see, we have people now in power that feel that our ( the United States) carbon footprint is too large, so we must shrink it, and they feel that the best way to do that is to make us produce less. This would begin to bring us down to the level of a third- world nation, and make other nations feel better about themselves, but is it really our task to re- do any other nation’s self- image?
Listen, I feel sorry for all the liberals who loathe themselves because they were fortunate enough to be born in the greatest country in the world, but our success is not cause for sorrow, nor have we caused all the problems in the world today. I have no guilt over the Palestinian problem- if they are too stupid to realize that throwing a rock at a tank might get them shot, oh well.
Still, the “greening” of Al Gore we can do without- as we can this onerous tax on energy. When we have a workable plan for alternative energy, fine, I’m all for it, but punishing our society for succeeding when all you liberals want is failure is childish, and worse, incredibly ignorant.
Not that that fault has ever stopped you before.
