Headlines of the Day

Posted by darthkeller on September 28, 2009

So, perusing the Drudge Report, here are a sampling of the articles that I saw, mind you – I didn’t read ANY of these articles. I just perused the titles, nothing more.

  • Four Charged In Brutal Chicago Mob Beating…
  • Iran says advanced missiles can target any threat
  • Liberals seek health-care access for illegals
  • RASMUSSEN POLL: Support for Health Care Plan Falls to New Low; 41% Favor 56% Oppose…
  • MANDATORY IMMUNIZATIONS FOR 500,000 IN NY…
  • Kerry: ‘I don’t know what ‘cap and trade’ means’…
  • Michigan faces govt. shutdown…

So, with all this going on, what did Barry do today: Obama to lead ’16 Chicago bid with trip

Yes, that’s right! With OUR MONEY, “our” President decided now would be a great time to take a trip to Copenhagen. Why not? We’ve had a lot of problems with the Danes as of late!

No, Iran didn’t launch a missile today that could have hit Israel.

No, there wasn’t a proposal of ever expanding government today

What, NATO asked for help in Afghanistan? Of course Barry couldn’t know about that, he’s only met with General Stanley McChrystal “once in 70 days”

Hey, the good news: Now the NEA can start creating art for something that could possibly help our country, or at least Barry’s friends.

So, let me get this straight: Barry wants to bring the Olympic Games to Chicago… The home of Al Capone, Rod Blagojavich, Tony Rezko and Barrack Obama? What could possibly go wrong there?

I’VE GOT IT: A gang attacks the athletes from other countries in an attempt to give Americans the edge

This could be the start of a new Olympic sport! And don’t forget to watch the media’s 100 meter backpedal from all of it!

ACORN in violation of RICO Act?

Posted by darthkeller on September 15, 2009

Ok, so in case you’ve been under a rock for the past week, you think I’m talking about voter fraud… I’m not – And you should visit BigGovernment.com before you continue.

From Wikipedia

Under RICO, a person who is a member of an enterprise that has committed any two of 35 crimes—27 federal crimes and 8 state crimes—within a 10-year period can be charged with racketeering. Those found guilty of racketeering can be fined up to $250,000 and/or sentenced to 20 years in prison per racketeering count. In addition, the racketeer must forfeit all ill-gotten gains and interest in any business gained through a pattern of “racketeering activity.” RICO also permits a private individual harmed by the actions of such an enterprise to file a civil suit; if successful, the individual can collect treble damages.

So, what are those crimes one must commit in order to qualify for RICO? Here’s a list:

  • Any violation of state statutes against gambling, murder, kidnapping, extortion, arson, robbery, bribery, dealing in obscene matter, or dealing in a controlled substance or listed chemical (as defined in the Controlled Substances Act);
  • Any act of bribery, counterfeiting, theft, embezzlement, fraud, dealing in obscene matter, obstruction of justice, slavery, racketeering, gambling, money laundering, commission of murder-for-hire, and several other offenses covered under the Federal criminal code (Title 18);
  • Embezzlement of union funds;
  • Bankruptcy or securities fraud;
  • Drug trafficking;
  • Money laundering and related offenses;
  • Bringing in, aiding or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain);
  • Acts of terrorism.

Any of those look familiar?  Let’s take the three videos from BigGovernment:

Extortion – ACORN said they would help, but that the “pimp” and the “prostitute” would have to join ACORN.  Sounds like extortion to me.

Dealing in Obscene Matter – THEY ARE SETTING UP A BROTHEL!  HELLO!

Fraud – I would say ACORN’s help in defrauding the IRS in tax money would count….

Slavery – I could be wrong, but I could swear that the “prostitute” said the girls would give her all the money, which means they are working for nothing, the very definition of slavery

Money Laundering – This is the practice of gaining money illegally and then disguising it to look legit… Like gifts from family, or gifts to family, pretty sure I heard that to
Bringing in… aliens – That’s somewhat the crutch of these videos, brining in 13 underage El Salvadorian girls to work in this brothel, so this is a definite “check”

What’s the count there?  Six… Not bad, since only two of them are necessary for RICO.  Now, the question is this: Will the MSM find the same evidence that my 2 minutes of research on Google/Wikipedia turn up, or will they continue to overlook the obvious?

If history is any teacher, it will be up to us, those of “the mob” to continue to press this story until ACORN is gone.  Of course, I could be wrong, and if I am, please let me know.  I’d love to learn more about this.

NOTE: I would like to go on record and thank Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe! These are two brave, CRAZY, kids!  They deserve the respect and admiration of all those that love America!
