Obama’s ACORN condones what Hillary’s State Department condemns.
By now the only people who have not heard about the undercover video reports that expose the radical housing and election fraud group ACORN as human trafficking enablers are those who limit their news consumption to the formerly mainstream media. That is few.
The rest know about the damning evidence captured by activists James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, who (as of this writing) have shared via the new Big Government website (has one ever seen a more splashy debut?) the criminal intentions of ACORN tax and housing specialists in Baltimore, Washington, Brooklyn and San Bernardino, Calif.
There’s plenty to nauseate taxpayers who, according to a Washington Examiner analysis, have seen $53 million in federal funds flow to the organization and its affiliates since 1994. Nudging the ACORN employees into territory with which they seemed all-too-comfortable, James and Hannah requested help obtaining a home for their brothel while seeking advice on how to deceive the government, avoid paying taxes, hide their illegal business, file false documents, violate campaign finance laws, and likely a host of other felonies.
That list is an infuriating peek into where the mind of a publicly funded crook would go. As elicited by the “pimp and the prostitute,” the ACORNers came off as routine, wink-and-a-nod corruption condoners, if not perpetrators.
Then you get to the child sex trafficking. Did James and Hannah know something ahead of time about the depths of these sick minds? Convicted predators are unacceptable even among their fellow prisoners, often getting beat up or killed behind bars. But the ACORN workers acted as if sexual abuse of kids was just another hurdle to overcome for their potential clients.
To refresh, after James and Hannah recorded a stupefying amount of desire to aid and abet, they posited the following at the Baltimore ACORN office:
James: Well here is the problem: Not only does Kenya (Hannah) have her business, do her thing, but she works with girls who are like 14, 15.
Kenya (Hannah): Well there are like 13 girls from El Salvador that I have kind of gotten wind on the street that they are coming and I have let the right people know that I am interested in taking care of them and getting them used to the area and getting them used to society.
Shira (ACORN worker): That you keep to yourself.
Later came more advice to keep the prostitution ring quiet:
Shira: No, no, no, no, you don’t bring that up. [Kenya/Hannah] is purchasing a house. Do not. She is buying a house to live in….
James: We understand.
Kenya: Okay no phones, no El Salvadorian girls…
Shira: No nothing.
James: Well they still exist but you just don’t talk about it….
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
