Obama defies the law gives $80,000 to Acorn


Our lawless President. Defies the rule of law and is no less than a Dictator now. What more is there to say. Drip, drip goes our dear country down the drain. I thought we were done with the nonsense of Acorn and his Marxist friends over there.

 A $79,819 federal grant to ACHOA to “To educate the public and housing providers about their rights and obligations under federal, state, and local fair housing laws.”

Full story at Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that that the Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has issued a $79,819 grant to the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN)-offshoot Affordable Housing Centers of America (AHCOA) in apparent violation of an ACORN funding ban passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama in 2009. Moreover, this grant was provided to the organization less than a year after ACORN/ACHOA was criticized by HUD’s inspector general in two separate investigations for misappropriating funds from federal grants.

On October 1, 2009, President Obama signed into law legislation known as the Defund ACORN Act that effectively prohibited the federal government from funding “ACORN and any ACORN-related affiliate.” Following a lawsuit filed by ACORN challenging the law, which passed both branches of Congress by wide margins, the federal courts in New York upheld the constitutionality of the funding ban on August 13, 2010. The Supreme Court last month refused to hear ACORN’s appeal of this funding ban.

But a Judicial Watch investigation revealed that, on March 1, 2011, HUD announced a $79,819 federal grant to ACHOA to “educate the public and housing providers about their rights and obligations under federal, state, and local fair housing laws.” More here at Judicial Watch

    You nailed it, this man is lawless. He does whatever the hell he wants to and he doesn’t care what the Congress or the courts have ordered him to do. When is the Congress going to call him out on this?!

    • bunkerville Says:

      There should be hearings now. Even the Supreme Court would not side with him. To hell with the Congress, and the Courts.

  2. Conservatives on Fire Says:

    And will our Republican “leaders” do more than whine about this latest criminal act by our gangster President. I doubt it. I’m really getting sick and tired of our Republicans.

    • Bunkerville Says:

      This is treason in my book. Defying the Supreme Court? The legislation he signed? Someone must pay. If we let this go,we are finished.

  3. Always On Watch Says:

    And America is obsessing on the Casey Anthony verdict while Obama continues to undermine our nation’s ballot box!

    Don’t get me wrong: I do think that Anthony verdict is a travesty. But in the long run, what Obama is doing to America matters so much more. The big picture and all that. Besides, the Anthony trial puts me in mind of bread and circuses — I am disgusted with FNC’s obsessive coverage of the trial.

    • Bunkerville Says:

      AOW you hit the nail on the head. Circus Maximus indeed.

      @ Always on Watch

      I think this is a definite strategy of this administration. They have the MSM in their pockets and know when to sensationalize the trivial and hide the much larger issues in a small column on Page 14 of Section D.

      • Bunkerville Says:

        Otis… I found it very interesting that right in the midst of all of the news Media covering the murder trial ending,Obama pops up in the Press room at 4:00- to make sure he got his mug on for the night while everyone was watching. Did anyone else catch that?
