United States Senator 1995 - 2007
Election Day is less than a week away, and reports have surfaced that one of Barack Obama's closest allies, ACORN (the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now), has committed widespread voter fraud threatening to undermine our democratic process.
I need your help to combat the over $800,000 that the Obama campaign has funneled to ACORN in an effort to steal this election. We cannot allow Barack Obama to win the White House, and for the Senate and the House to remain in Democratic hands. This would spell disaster for our nation's economic stability and national security.
That is why I'm asking you to consider helping America's Foundation one last time before Election Day so that we can deploy additional resources to Republican candidates around the country. Already we have contributed $100,000, but there is more to be done especially in these final hours of the election.
In case you haven't heard, look at what ACORN has done so far in an effort to undermine our democratic process:
ACORN has submitted thousands of fraudulent registrations like "Mickey Mouse," the starting line-up for the Dallas Cowboys and thousands of convicted felons.
Individuals were bribed with cash and cigarettes to register
And when asked about this in the 3rd presidential debate, Obama smiled and responded only with a laugh.
This is no laughing matter. ACORN's efforts won't effect just the presidential race, but they will effect down ballot races as well, and the results could be devastating.
Please consider making a contribution of $25, $50, $100 or even $500 to help combat our Democratic opponents. With less then a week until Election Day, your help is more needed than ever before.
You and I are the only thing standing between Barack Obama in the White House, a filibuster-proof Senate, and a House of Representatives with an overwhelmingly Democratic majority that would:
Declare defeat in Iraq
Raise your taxes
Nominate and confirm radical Supreme Court justices
And reverse the ban on partial birth abortion
This is our last chance to head off this certain disaster, but I need your help today. I can't thank you enough for the support you've shown me in the past and for standing by me when it counted most.
Thank you for your generosity,
U.S. Senate (1995-2007)
P.S. Please consider making a generous contribution of $25, $50, $100 or even $500 to America's Foundation today. With less than a week to go until Election Day, your contribution is vital!

"WHO IS BUYING THE WHITE HOUSE?"
CAMPAIGN FINANCE: Sources of more than $190 million in Obama election contributions are UNIDENTIFIED. Will a federal investigation find foreigners illegally rigging the most important presidential election in history??
Newsmax reported last week that Sen. Barack Obama's has collected "the largest pool of unidentified money that has ever flooded into the U.S. election system, before or after the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reforms of 2002."
Federal Election Commission data show that some $222 million of the cash Obama has collected came in the form of contributions of $200 or less, with the Democratic nominee's campaign identifying the donors of less than $40 million of that sum.
Campaigns may accept donations of less than $200 without providing the donors' names and addresses in campaign finance reports, but Sen. John McCain's camp has made its full donor database available on the Internet. Independent campaign finance watchdog organizations have asked the Obama campaign to list ALL its donors, as well, but it's refused. What is Obama hiding?
Major media have jumped on the story, with Newsweek noting that FEC auditors ordered Obama's campaign to return large amounts from sources with FAKE names. One phone was "Good Will," who listed "Loving" as his employer and "You" as his job. The address given was found to be that of the Austin-based nonprofit Goodwill Industries, which informed the Obama campaign last month that its name was apparently being used fraudulently.
Another made-up name: "Doodad Pro." His listed address is a Nunda, N.Y liquor store next to the now-closed Doodad Boutique.
More disturbing was $33,000 paid for Obama campaign T-shirts by two Palestinian brothers from Gaza who listed "Ga" as their address, which the campaign took to be the state of Georgia. The purchase is considered a campaign donation.
This week, CBS News discovered two Obama contributors who gave $7,722 using fake identities, "Dahsudhu Hdushfd of Df, Hawaii, employed by "CZXVC/ZXVZXV" and "Uadhshgu Hduadh of Dhff, Fla, who works for "DASADA/SAFASE."
The Newsmax report noted a separate FEC database of more than 11,500 OVERSEAS CONTRIBUTIONS to Obama totaling $33.8 million, with more than 520 listing their locations as "IR," as possible abbreviation for Iran. (The Associated Press noted that "In FEC reports, the designation "IR" typically stands for 'information requested' because the donor did not supply it.")
Sixty-three listings had "UK" as the donor's location. Other locales apparently providing money for Obama included Abu Dhabi, Addis Ababa, Beijing and Fallujah, as well as France and Italy.
Obama's Web site formerly let donors choose from among every United Nations member when listing their residence. By contrast, the presidential campaign of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton actually required U.S. citiens residing abroad to fax a copy of their passport before accepting their donations. FEDERAL LAW PROHIBITS THE ACCEPTANCE OF CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS FROM FOREIGN NATIONS.
In the summer, the head of Nigeria's stock market held a series of fundraisers believed to have collected $900,000 - ostensibly to pay for some Nigerians' attendance at the Democratic convention in Denver. A Nigerian government commission is now investigating.
Do the "Doodads," "Good Wills," "Dahsudhu Hdusahfds" and Nigerian money men form only the tip of the iceberg? The hundreds of millions this supposed "man of the people" has raised is an astonishing sum, with a large percentage coming from unknown sources.
Obama might say the doesn't know who any of these people are, so it is absurd to suggest he would be a president in the pocket of anti-American foreigners he doesn't know.
But they know him. Many foreign powers would give a fortune to install a far-left president who wants to reduce American economic and military power. All signs point to Obama being exactly that.

ACORN Owes Millions in Taxes
by Amanda Carpenter
An intrepid researcher has discovered more than 200 tax liens totaling more than $3.7 million have been filed by the government against the Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now for unpaid taxes since the late eighties.
A tax lien is issued when a person or organization fails to pay taxes and that tax debt is considered seriously delinquent. A lien is only issued after the government makes several unsuccessful attempts to collect the debt.
The conservative-leaning Capital Research Center’s Matthew Vadum found a staggering number of liens listed against ACORN’s national headquarters at 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana while conducting an exhaustive investigation of ACORN's history and current activities.
“I took that address and plugged it into Nexis and did a public records search for tax liens,” Vadum said. “At least 230 tax liens corresponded to ACORN’s address and they were all from ACORN’s shadowy network of affiliates.”
The liens filed against ACORN and their associated groups come from the Internal Revenue Service and government officials in fifteen different states.
75 of the 230 tax liens appear to have been “released,” meaning the full debt was paid or a negotiated payment was made for the debt. The rest are outstanding.
The "shadowy network" Vadum mentioned are the hundreds of ACORN offshoots housed at ACORN's official 1024 Elysian Fields Avenue address, such as Project Vote, ACORN Institute Inc., ACORN Housing Inc. Inc and Wal-Mart Alliance for Reform Now (WARN). One of those organizations is Citizens Consulting, Inc, which was paid nearly $800,000 by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama’s campaign to conduct get-out-the-vote activities during the Democratic primary.
While CSI raked in cash from the Obama campaign the IRS was preparing nearly a million in liens against ACORN. The IRS filed a lien on ACORN for $306,407 on March 6, 2008. A different lien was filed for $547,312 against ACORN on March 10, 2008 and another was filed on March 14 for $132,997.
Minority Leader Rep. John Boehner (R.-Ohio)and other Republicans have called on Congress to strip ACORN of their federal funding, which has received at least $31 million in various grants since 1998, because of ACORN's role in rampant vote registration fraud across the nation, but Democrats have not expressed any interest in doing this.
ACORN is a relentless crusader for social programs and government wealth redistribution schemes and the fact they can’t be bothered to pay taxes speaks volumes about the integrity of the organization,” Vadum said.
Vadum recently published his report about ACORN and it is available HERE.

The Sack Lunches -- I put my carry-on in the luggage compartment and sat down in my assigned seat. It was going to be a long flight. 'I'm glad I have a good book to read. Perhaps I will get a short nap,' I thought. Just before take-off, a line of soldiers came down the aisle and filled all the vacant seats, totally surrounding me. I decided to start a conversation. 'Where are you headed?' I asked the soldier seated nearest to me. 'Chicago - to Great Lakes Base. We'll be there for two weeks for special training, and then we're being deployed to Iraq '
After flying for about an hour, an announcement was made that sack lunches were available for five dollars. It would be several hours before we reached Chicago, and I quickly decided a lunch would help pass the time. As I reached for my wallet, I overheard soldier ask his buddy if he planned to buy lunch. 'No, that seems like a lot of money for just a sack lunch. Probably wouldn't be worth five bucks. I'll wait till we get to Chicago ' His friend agreed. I looked around at the other soldiers. None were buying lunch.
I walked to the back of the plane and handed the flight attendant a fifty dollar bill. 'Take a lunch to all those soldiers.' She grabbed my arms and squeezed tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked me. 'My son was a soldier in Iraq; it's almost like you are doing it for him.' Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the aisle to where the soldiers were seated. She stopped at my seat and asked, 'Which do you like best - beef or chicken?' 'Chicken,' I replied, wondering why she asked. She turned and went to the front of plane, returning a minute later with a dinner plate from first class. 'This is your thanks.'
After we finished eating, I went again to the back of the plane, heading for the rest room. A man stopped me. 'I saw what you did. I want to be part of it. Here, take this.' He handed me twenty-five dollars. Soon after I returned to my seat, I saw the Flight Captain coming down the aisle, looking at the aisle numbers as he walked, I hoped he was not looking for me, but noticed he was looking at the numbers only on my side of the plane. When he got to my row he stopped, smiled, held out his hand, and said, 'I want to shake your hand.' Quickly unfastening my seatbelt I stood and took the Captain's hand. With a booming voice he said, 'I was a soldier and I was a military pilot. Once, someone bought me a lunch. It was an act of kindness I never forgot.' I was embarrassed when applause was heard from all of the passengers.
Later I walked to the front of the plane so I could stretch my legs. A man who was seated about six rows in front of me reached out his hand, wanting to shake mine. He left another twenty-five dollars in my palm. When we landed in Chicago I gathered my belongings and started to deplane. Waiting just inside the airplane door was a man who stopped me, put something in my shirt pocket, turned, and walked away without saying a word. Another twenty-five dollars!
Upon entering the terminal, I saw the soldiers gathering for their trip to the base. I walked over to them and handed them seventy-five dollars. 'It will take you some time to reach the base. It will be about time for a sandwich. God Bless You.' Ten young men left that flight feeling the love and respect of their fellow travelers. As I walked briskly to my car, I whispered a prayer for their safe return. These soldiers were giving their all for our country. I could only give them a couple of meals. It seemed so little...
A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a blank check Made payable to 'The United States of America ' for an amount of 'up to and including my life.' That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.'

FIRST TIME SEX .............
A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night to meet and have dinner with her parents.
Since this is such a big event, the girl announced to her boyfriend that after dinner she would like to go out and make love for the first time.
The boy is ecstatic, but he had never had sex before, so he made a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms.
He told the pharmacist it's his first time and the pharmacist helped the boy for about an hour. He told the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex.
At the register, the pharmacist asked the boy how many condoms he'd like to buy a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack.
The boy insisted on the family pack because he thought he would be rather busy, it being his first time and all.
That night, the boy showed up at the girl's parents' house and met his girlfriend at the door.
"Oh, I'm so excited for you to meet my parents. Come on in!"
The boy went inside and was taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents were seated. The boy quickly offered to say grace and bowed his head.
A minute passed, and the boy was still deep in prayer, with his head down. Ten minutes passed, and still no movement from the boy.
Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leaned over and whispered to her boyfriend, "I had no idea you were this religious."
The boy turned and whispered back, "I had no idea your father was a pharmacist."
If you DON'T forward this to at least 1 person you have a bad sense of humor !!!
