THE MANY FACES OF ACORN

Posted on September 26, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info, Watchdog Tools | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Below please find a list of ACORN Affiliates A list of ACORN branch names and addresses is published seperately on this site http://wp.me/pxG9Z-9w  . I would appreciate the cooperation of all Watchdogs, Corruption Fighters, Truth Seekers, Dragon Slayers and Sleuths to track down facts that up until now were hidden from view. These may include back door Congressional dealing, under the table funding, extortion payments, etc.. Please use tools listed on this site, to the right of this column under Citizen Tools to unearth the web of deceit. The government is supposedly in the process of cutting ties with ACORN. You know, and I know, they will merely find another way to do it from the shadows. Let’s work together to stop them in their tracks. Please. Also, it is my belief the government will fund acorn through the banks from here on out. After all ACORN and the banks have a cozy history and the government now owns the banks. See this http://wp.me/pxG9Z-9L to find out how BofA worked with ACORN. Please keep that in mind while you are searching. I have chosen not to publish where I came upon the list of Affiliates as things have been disappearing from the web of late.

News for 09/14/2009- The Tides Foundation

Posted on September 14, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

President Obama told us if he wanted to know what kind of President he would be, we should look at whom he surrounds himself with. To that end, we continue to acquaint ourselves. Today’s focus:

The Tides Foundation:

Per their website, their mission is to partner with philanthropists, foundations, activists, and organizations across the country and across the globe to promote economic justice, robust democratic processes, and the opportunity to live in a healthy and sustainable environment where human rights are preserved and protected.

They offer an array of services to simplify and amplify allies efforts. From donor advised funds to fiscal sponsorship, from green nonprofit centers to programmatic consulting, from grants management to risk management and more, Tides says they give them the freedom to focus on the change you want to see.

Each Tides organization pursues a distinct yet related strategy to promote the Tides mission. Tides Foundation works with donors to increase and organize resources for positive social change. Tides Center is sponsor to nearly 200 projects nationwide working to advance progressive social change. Tides Shared Spaces operates and supports green nonprofit centers.

Definition:

Social Justice, per Wikipedia: Social justice is both a philosophical debate and an important issue in politics, religion and civil society. Most individuals wish to live in a just society, but different political ideologies have different conceptions of what a ‘just society’ actually is. The term “social justice” is often employed by the political left to describe a society with a greater degree of economic egalitarianism, which may be achieved through progressive taxation, income redistribution, or even property redistribution, policies aimed toward achieving that which developmental economists refer to as equality of opportunity and equality of outcome.   Tides Foundation espouses to Support Progressive Social Change   http://www.tides.org/about-us/board-of-directors/index.html– board of directors link http://www.tides.org/about-us/executive-team/index.html– executive staff link   In the ten-year period between 1996 and 2006, Tides Center was fiscal sponsor to 677 projects with combined revenues of $522.4 million, and has worked with well over 800 projects since the first days as the Projects Program. Tides Foundation has had 30 years of visionary philanthropy for progressive social change. Since 2000, it has granted more than $400 million to progressive nonprofit organizations. Our growth is a testament to the joint commitment among our partners and staff to supporting positive social change domestically and globally.   http://www.muckety.com/Tides-Foundation/5022412.muckety  Wade Rathke former director – founder of Acorn, and his brother were bailed out by Drummond Pike, founder of Tides Center and Tides Foundation, after Dale Rathke embezzled nearly one million dollars from Acorn. http://www.nlpc.org/stories/2008/09/08/donor-who-bailed-out-rathkes-identified-foundation-head  

The unfolding financial scandal at the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, has taken a new turn.  ACORN, based in New Orleans, never wanted known the identity of the person who assumed responsibility for a promissory note of nearly $740,000, a sum representing the remaining balance of the roughly $950,000 embezzled from ACORN’s coffers nearly a decade ago.  But thanks to some digging by San Francisco Chronicle reporter Henry K. Lee, the identity of the person is now known:  Drummond Pike, founder and chief executive of the Tides Foundation, a San Francisco-based philanthropy well-known in progressive circles.  The case is significant for organized labor because ACORN founder and chief organizer Wade Rathke is the founder and chief organizer of Local 100 (Arkansas, Louisiana and Texas) of the Service Employees International Union.  In addition, SEIU Local 880, based in the Midwest, operates as an adjunct of ACORN.  Three months ago, he resigned from his post over the scandal.  Union Corruption Update recently reported that Dale Rathke, Wade Rathke’s brother, stepped down in the wake of revelations that during 1999-2000, while serving as ACORN’s chief financial officer, he transferred $948,507.50 from ACORN to Citizens Consulting, Inc.  The balance transfer, by all accounts theft by any other name, was carried for years on CCI’s books as a loan.  ACORN executives at the time declined to notify authorities, preferring to negotiate a promissory note with the Rathke family to pay off the balance.  By this year, $210,000 had been repaid – seven $30,000 installments.  The scandal had been hushed up until a disgruntled ACORN employee (and possibly ex-employee) blew the whistle several months ago.  In the aftermath, Wade Rathke departed and the nonprofit network secured an agreement from an unnamed donor to assume payments.

Excerpt: “MONEY. Money is to the Tides Foundation and Center what water is to the tide. You can’t be sure from what source any part comes. You can’t be sure where any part goes. But it can knock you off your feet and pull you down. And there is an ocean of it.

“The Tides Foundation and its offspring, the Tides Center, effectively “launder” donor dollars when they give to other nonprofits. The San Francisco-based Foundation receives donations from individuals and foundations and then channels them to activist groups. The result is that the original donor can’t be linked to the ultimate recipient. According to the most recent available IRS form 990, the Tides Foundation received $86.1 million in grants, gifts and other contributions in 2001. It gave away over $76 million. Since it was established in 1976, the Foundation has given away over $300 million in grants. (Total 2001 income was $93.2 million; the Foundation had assets of more than $156 million.)” To read the entire piece, click on this link. Tides_Foundation.pdf (147 KB) Note: Kendeda Sustainability Fund of the Tides Foundation is one of many foundations funding Grist, a liberal on-line magazine, according to its own website.  Grist recently called for “war crime trials” for those who don’t agree that humans are causing catastrophic climate change.

News for 09/02/2009- Exactly Who Were the Groups on That Secret Conference Call, Anyway?

Posted on September 1, 2009. Filed under: Enemies of The State, General Info, Soapbox | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

On August 11th, President Obama held a conference call with all his special interest allies in order to push renaming 09/11 as our National Day of Service instead of keeping the day for strict remembrance of those who perished in the awful and unjust terrorist attacks on our country. Their feeling is that the Republican Party owns this day, according to some reports, and this would be a way to “capture” the day for the Democrats. What horrendous thinking, illustrative of what is wrong with this country.  The resolution, introduced in the Senate by Charles Shummer (D-NY) as S.245, then in the House as HR 718, by Doris Matsui (D-CA) was being furthered by the President by consulting this hand-picked assemblage.  Groups on the call included: ACORN, AFL-CIO, Apollo Alliance, Color of Change, Community Action Partnership, Deep South Center for Environmental Justice, 80 Million Strong for Young American Jobs, Friends of the Earth, Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, Mobilize.org, National Black Police Association, National Coalition on Black Civic Participation, National Council of Negro Women, National Wildlife Federation, RainbowPUSH Coalition, Urban League, Young Democrats of America.  

 Who are these organizations and why were they given a seat at the table?  

ACORN- Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now http://article.nationalreview.com/?q=NDZiMjkwMDczZWI5ODdjOWYxZTIzZGIyNzEyMjE0ODI  To understand the nature and extent of Acorn’s radicalism, an excellent place to begin is Sol Stern’s 2003 City Journal article, “ACORN’s Nutty Regime for Cities.” (For a shorter but helpful piece, try Steven Malanga’s “Acorn Squash.”) Sol Stern explains that Acorn is the key modern successor of the radical 1960’s “New Left,” with a “1960’s-bred agenda of anti-capitalism” to match. Acorn, says Stern, grew out of “one of the New Left’s silliest and most destructive groups, the National Welfare Rights Organization.” In the 1960’s, NWRO launched a campaign of sit-ins and disruptions at welfare offices. The goal was to remove eligibility restrictions, and thus effectively flood welfare rolls with so many clients that the system would burst. The theory, explains Stern, was that an impossibly overburdened welfare system would force “a radical reconstruction of America’s unjust capitalist economy.” Instead of a socialist utopia, however, we got the culture of dependency and family breakdown that ate away at America’s inner cities — until welfare reform began to turn the tide. While Acorn holds to NWRO’s radical economic framework and its confrontational 1960’s-style tactics, the targets and strategy have changed. Acorn prefers to fly under the national radar, organizing locally in liberal urban areas — where, Stern observes, local legislators and reporters are often “slow to grasp how radical Acorn’s positions really are.” Acorn’s new goals are municipal “living wage” laws targeting “big-box” stores like Walmart, rolling back welfare reform, and regulating banks — efforts styled as combating “predatory lending.” Unfortunately, instead of helping workers, Acorn’s living-wage campaigns drive businesses out of the very neighborhoods where jobs are needed most. Acorn’s opposition to welfare reform only threatens to worsen the self-reinforcing cycle of urban poverty and family breakdown. 

  HERE ARE JUST A FEW ISSUES INVOLVING ACORN   http://www.rottenacorn.com/activityMap.html Acorn is charged with several counts of voter fraud within 14 states. Here is the map and the charges.   http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/the-complete-guide-to-acorn-voter-fraud/ There is a history of voter fraud charges envolving Acorn.   http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/s_606173.html

A group of dissident members is seeking a federal investigation of ACORN for alleged criminal violations stemming from an embezzlement scandal that rocked the organization last year. The splinter group, ACORN 8, released a 24-page document in January, 2009, that asks federal investigators to consider fraud, embezzlement and conspiracy charges, and criminal civil rights violations relating to the embezzlement of nearly $1 million from the nonprofit’s accounts and an alleged cover-up of the theft for almost a decade. “Moreover, due to the admission that a felony has been committed, other federal offenses may have also been committed … ,” states the document signed by 14 members of ACORN 8, including recently expelled members of ACORN’s national board of directors.

http://theeprovocateur.blogspot.com/2009/05/embezzlement-of-dale-rathke.html Starting sometime in the late 1990’s and ending sometime in the early part of this decade, Dale Rathke, brother of founder Wade Rathke, was involved in embezzling somewhere in the neighborhood of $1 million from the ACORN accounting and financial services arm Citizen Consulting Incorporated. At the time, Dale Rathke was heading up CCI. CCI has acted as the weigh station for all financial funds for ACORN and all of it’s affiliates. In other words, any money earmarked for any activity within the ACORN network starts out at CCI.   http://theeprovocateur.blogspot.com/2009/01/inside-story-of-acorn.html ACORN has hundreds of affiliates though no one, outside the insiders, knows exactly how many. It likely receives hundreds of millions of Dollars from the government. Though again, no one is sure because all of it is hidden by using the private CCI as an initial weigh station. It works with HUD, HHS, and the Department of Labor along with a host of philanthropies in order to continue its operations. All of it is done in the shadows through a very sophisticated network of affiliates and one private company, CCI, doling out the money. By doing this, it becomes nearly impossible to track its activities. What I have brought to light is only scratching the surface but should give everyone an idea of just how powerful and dangerous ACORN is.   http://moneyrunner.blogspot.com/2008/09/how-acorn-helped-housing-crisis-harm.html The truth is that the root cause of the mortgage mess is found in Washington and with organizations like ACORN which have long pushed and used extortion tactics to force banks to make bad loans. All the while, collecting millions of dollars in grants and “donations” from banks that paid them protection money.
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/03/17/lawmakers-concerned-role-acorn-census/ The U.S. Census is supposed to be free of politics, but one group with a history of voter fraud, ACORN, is participating in next year’s count, raising concerns about the politicization of the decennial survey. The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States — currently believed to be more than 306 million people. ACORN’s partnership with the 2010 Census is worrisome to lawmakers who say past allegations of fraud should raise concerns about the organization. “It’s a concern, especially when you look at all the different charges of voter fraud. And it’s not just the lawmakers’ concern. It should be the concern of every citizen in the country,” Rep. Lynn A. Westmoreland, R-Ga., vice ranking member of the subcommittee for the U.S. Census, told FOXNews.com.   http://democracygone.blogspot.com/2009/08/acorn-funded-by-bailout-tax-dollars.html  Acorn, funded by bailout tax dollars, working against our Second Amendment and our Constitution!   CONNECT THE DOTS: http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/groupProfile.asp?grpid=6968

    Isn’t it interesting that just as Glenn Beck exposes Van Jones the Green Job Czar in the Obama Administration as an avowed Communist ex-con, his group which he co-founded ColorofChange kicks into high gear to try to silence Glenn Beck’s voice. Let’s face it, no news organization out there does their homework anymore. Everyone is afraid to speak the truth. It is no surprise that when Glenn Beck starts going after the big boys in the Obama Administration that thug-like reprisals begin to appear. No matter what Glenn Beck says, he has the right to say it. What about all the times that MSNBC called George Bush a racist?

    COMMUNITY ACTION PARTNERSHIP

    Community Action Agencies (CAAs) are nonprofit private and public organizations established under the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964 to fight America’s War on Poverty. Community Action Agencies help people to help themselves in achieving self-sufficiency. Today there are approximately 1000 Community Action Agencies, serving the poor in every state as well as Puerto Rico and the Trust Territories.

    http://www.communityactionpartnership.com/

    …Structural racism explores the causes of the enormous racial disparities that exist in income, wealth, education, housing, employment, and crime throughout our society.  The lens of structural racism points out the interrelated causes of persistent poverty. For example, inadequate housing and a weak local economy result in a low tax base which leads to poor schools that do not prepare people for the workplace adequately and thus they cannot make a livable wage in this economy. Using the structural racism lens helps explain why siloed approaches to reducing poverty may not reach the goals we desire. This prestigious national project of the Community Action Partnership and funded by the Ford Foundation is exploring the assumption that place-based strategies to reduce poverty and enhance economic security are more effective when they take the racial inequalities that are a result of structural racism into account in their program design.

One was People United To Serve Humanity (PUSH), established in 1971, which advocated race preferences in the form of affirmative action. PUSH also helped sponsor a massive June 12, 1982 rally, organized by the Communist Party USA and the Soviet-supported U.S. Peace Council, advocating the dismantling of America’s military arsenal. The other organization was the Rainbow Coalition, formed in 1985 to counter policies enacted during President Reagan’s second term which Jackson deemed discriminatory against African Americans. Today Rainbow/PUSH maintains its national headquarters in Chicago, and has branch offices in New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Atlanta, Houston, Silicon Valley, New Orleans, and Washington, DC.

    In 1971, Vernon Jordan, who had previously headed the United Negro College Fund and would eventually, two decades later, become an advisor to President Bill Clinton headed the National Urban League. Jordan expanded the organization’s activities in the areas of equal housing, education, and minority business development.  He also instituted the Urban Leagues’s State of Black America Report. During his tenure, Jordan demonstrated an inclination to blame white racism for even the most egregious black-perpetrated outrages. In the wake of a 1980 black riot in Miami, for instance, he suggested that the city’s “white power structure” — political and judicial — had created a racial atmosphere in which refraining from rioting was “too much to ask of any [black] human being.” Over the years, Urban League reports and public statements have frequently condemned the United States as an intractably racist nation.The National Urban League has received funding from: the American Express Foundation; the AT&T Foundation; the Carnegie Corporation of New York; the Annie E. Casey Foundation; the Fannie Mae Foundation; the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation; the Joyce Foundation; the W. K. Kellogg Foundation; the Sara Lee Foundation; the John D. & Catherine T.
