Obama Campaign Tries to Cover Up ACORN Relationship

The Cleveland Leader is reporting that Barack is trying to cover-up his relationship with ACORN. Early Thursday morning they said:

Attempts to hide evidence of Obama’s involvement with ACORN have included wiping the web clean of potentially damaging articles that had appeared, and were previously publicly accessible. Unfortunately, those behind the attempted cover-up failed to realize that in today’s day and age, nothing disappears forever. There also exists another layer of the web, the hidden web, which is full of information included in proprietary scholarly databases where these very same “missing” articles can be easily uncovered.

Obama’s campaign website states:

Fact: Barack was never an ACORN trainer and never worked for ACORN in any other capacity.

Is that really a FACT, or just another lie? Let’s take a look at a quote from a 2004 article – Case Study: Chicago- The Barack Obama Campaign – written by Toni Foulkes, a Chicago ACORN Leader, which was published in the journal Social Policy. Did we mention that Social Policy recently pulled this particular article from their website, while leaving links to all other articles up?

“Obama took the case, known as ACORN vs. Edgar (the name of the Republican governor at the time) and we won. Obama then went on to run a voter registration project with Project VOTE in 1992 that made it possible for Carol Moseley Braun to win the Senate that year. Project VOTE delivered 50,000 newly registered voters in that campaign (ACORN delivered about 5,000 of them).

Since then, we have invited Obama to our leadership training sessions to run the session on power every year, and, as a result, many of our newly developing leaders got to know him before he ever ran for office. Thus it was natural for many of us to be active volunteers in his first campaign for State Senate and then his failed bid for U.S. Congress in 1996. By the time he ran for U.S. Senate, we were old friends.

Early on Friday, the Leader had more breaking news.

Today, the cover-ups continue and language on Obama’s website has been altered in order to make it look like he has been telling the about his ACORN associations all along.

Fortunately, we and many others online know how to do a screen capture and how to use a little something called Google Cache.

As of yesterday, stated:

Fact: Barack was never an ACORN trainer and never worked for ACORN in any other capacity.

Sometime on Friday, the website was altered, and the text was changed to state:

Fact: ACORN never hired Obama as a trainer, organizer, or any type of employee.

The mere fact that his campaign has now changed the language of the site shows that they have conceded the fact that their original remark was a bold-face lie. As a lawyer Sen. Obama should know the importance of language.

The original statement implied that he had no working connection with ACORN, whereas the new statement now insists that he has never been employed or hired by ACORN.

It is good to see the truth finally come out now, but why were they trying to hide his association with ACORN, and what else is Obama lying to us about? Perhaps the biggest question now is how and why they got the Social Policy article stricken from most of the world wide web in the What are they trying to hide?

Obama Makes False Claim to Cut Spending

Only in the weird world of Quantum Mechanics can math like this be explained. The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, an independent, group analyzed Obama’s tax and spending plans.

They result in a net increase of spending of $281 billion.

The claim that, “Actually I’m cutting more than I’m spending so that it will be a net spending cut” is totally false.

How did the morning shows in the MSM confront this? They ignored it.

NewsBusters highlights this problem while AP takes issue with both candidates on factual errors.

CNN Says Obama Is Lying About Ayers

Give a hat tip to CNN and Anderson Cooper for reporting on the link between Barack Obama and unrpentant domestic terrorist William Ayers.

If you read this blog with any regularity, you know how abhorent double-standards are to me. I regularly criticize the media, and anyone else, for praising one person and condemning another person for exactly the same action.

On that rare occasion when a regular transgressor gets things right, I am glad to call attention to their good deed.

Barack Obama has been lying about his relationship with William Ayers. Obama claims to have barely known Ayers even though Obama served on two non-profit boards with Ayers, put on a major fundraiser with him, and arranged grants to schools at Ayers direction.  Anderson Cooper calls this “dishonest” in his report.

Way to go Coop!

Questions for God

Is God real? Is the Bible true? What do Christians believe? Why does God allow evil?

These are questions that non-Christians and Christians alike have been asking. A new book, “The God Questions,” was originally intended to enable Christians to invite friends to church. But pastors and co-authors Dr. Hal Seed and Dr. Dan Grider discovered that Christian believers were as unclear about biblical answers as their friends were.

The New Censors

Michael Moore has a TemperatureI just read the letter from House Democrats to Robert Iger, CEO of Disney, demanding that ABC edit/censor “Path to 9/11.” Representatives Conyers, Dingell, Harman and Slaughter acknowledge that while they have not actually seen the mini-series but they are concerned it might have some innaccuracies in it.

I will be writing to thank them for their unflinching commitment to truth. Further, I will be requesting a copy of their letter to Michael Moore as he was getting ready to release “Fahrenheit 911.
