The American Report
Given his associations with domestic terrorists, ACORN, shadowy Middle Eastern financiers, Muslim Brotherhood groups, communists, Black Liberation Theology, fraud and his vow to “fundamentally transform the United States of America,” should new authority to negotiate international trade agreements be given to the man who calls himself Barack Hussein Obama?
The video below is a narrated exploration of the men and women who shaped the life of Barack Hussein Obama.
Please pass this along to your friends and family, and remind them at the TPP legislation will hand THIS MAN the legal right to overrule Congress.

Despite a 5-year-old congressional ban on federal funding for the notably corrupt Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), Judicial Watch has obtained documents that show a chunk of taxpayer money went to an affiliate serving as an Obamacare “navigator.”
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) violated the ACORN funding ban by awarding a Louisiana nonprofit called Southern United Neighborhoods (SUN) a $1.3 million Obamacare navigator grant to recruit customers for the president’s disastrous healthcare law and help them “navigate” the complicated insurance exchanges. Headquartered in New Orleans, SUN is dedicated to combating poverty, discrimination and community deterioration that keep low-income people from taking advantage of their rights and opportunities, according to its website.
A MONTPELIER VIEW
via Free Republic
Does anyone remember the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN )? It was a “coalition” of community-based organizations advocating for low-income and moderate-income families in such areas as voter corruption, fraudulent health care claims, and affordable housing. In the latter category, they supported the Community Reinvestment Act, signed into law in 1977 by Jimmy Carter (who many may recall was the second worst president in US history), urged on by Gale Cincotta of National People’s Action Network (Chicago), and which through a succession of revisions, led to the collapse of the US housing market .
The leftist view of the housing market collapse was (and I assume continues to be) that greedy financial institutions made bad loans and illegal deals, trapping poor folk into their web of lies and distortions; and if we were speaking about Countrywide Home Loans, and Washington Mutual Savings and Loans, then that would be a true statement. It is also true that former Senator Chris Dodd and former Representative Barney Frank enriched themselves from such organizations while exercising congressional oversight of their activities. Of course, one cannot help but wonder why Dodd and Frank aren’t in jail, and ideally, in the same cell.
Several of the ACORN organizations attempted to disassociate themselves with the national organization by founding new organizations, which include the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, New York Communities for Change, and Affordable Housing Centers of America. Oh, and one more (it seems) calling itself NeighborWorks America .
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch, announced today that it has obtained documents from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) revealing that on February 12, 2013, HUD Assistant Secretary for Office of Housing Counseling Sarah Gerecke may have violated federal law by requesting that $201,222.07 be transferred from the account of the defunct Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA), an ACORN spin-off, to HUD intermediary Mission for Peace “to specifically pay for the activities of former AHCOA affiliates.”
According to the documents, obtained pursuant to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed on May 16, 2013, the Gerecke memo requesting the transfer appears to have been in violation of the first continuing resolution of FY 13. That resolution continued funding levels under the FY 2012 appropriations bills, which provided that no HUD funds “made available under this Act may be distributed to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) or its subsidiaries.”
Conservatives are constantly bombarded with being referred to as conspiracy theorists: everything from a belief that Eric Holder was shipping guns to Mexican drug cartels in order to curtail the Second Amendment, to probably the most serious, if true, that Barack Hussein Obama is a foreign plant—that is, a Manchurian President.
The latter is the stuff of spy novels and Hollywood make-believe, not real life, right?
Perhaps. Perhaps not.
For anyone who has done even a cursory study of Barack Obama’s life, they know that his radical Marxist views are not a recent phenomenon.
During his New York years, he was a frequent participant in the annual Socialist Scholars Conference held in Manhattan.
In the 1990s, he was affiliated with the Marxist New Party.
He called for an outright ban on guns in 1996.
Through the 1990s and 2000s, he funneled millions of dollars to socialist front groups like ACORN, via the Woods Fund and the Chicago Annenberg Challenge. His buddy, domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, helped stuff the money in the pockets of these “public welfare” groups, often taking money from wealthy donors who believed the funds were being used to further education or stamp out poverty. This was Barack Obama’s first foray into “spreading the wealth around.”
It was predicted here repeatedly that if Obama won, it would be by voter fraud. No psychic ability was required; given the state of the economy and Obama’s abysmal job performance, there is no other way he could win. His only significant political experience before taking office was with ACORN, an outfit best known for engaging in voter fraud. In order to make sure Obama’s base engaged in it broadly, Eric Holder used his jihad against voter ID requirements to broadcast loudly well in advance that voter fraud would be easy and risk free.
