CCRKBA Calls on Obama to Repudiate, Reject Brady Campaign Endorsement



BELLEVUE, WA If Democrat Barack Obama truly supports gun rights and the Second Amendment, he should immediately repudiate and reject today s endorsement by the anti-gun Brady Campaign, the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms said.

By accepting an endorsement from the nation s leading gun ban organization, said CCRKBA Legislative Affairs Director Joe Waldron, Barack Obama would be declaring to every gun owner in America that he has lied to them all these months during the presidential campaign. If he accepts this endorsement, Obama may as well spit on the Second Amendment.

The Brady Campaign announced its endorsement Monday by noting that Obama and his running mate, anti-gun Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware, will strengthen the Brady Law, and would once again outlaw commonly-owned semi-automatic sport/utility rifles.

The Brady Campaign wants to completely eliminate certain types of firearms, Waldron noted, which is precisely the kind of thing that was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court s Heller decision in June. They claim that Barack Obama is the man who can get that done. This is hardly the kind of endorsement that will earn points among target shooters, hunters and gun collectors, who have harmed nobody and broken no laws.

But the Brady Campaign would make these people criminals on paper simply because they own certain types of firearms, he added. Their endorsement of the Obama/Biden ticket to accomplish that goal is tantamount to a home invasion robbery of every gun owner in the United States.

If Barack Obama thinks gun owners should give him their votes after this endorsement, it is an insult to their intelligence, Waldron observed. That seems to be nothing new, however, after he s had one so-called hunter s and shooter s group shilling for him on the campaign trail, to say nothing of his selection of Joe Biden as his running mate.

Obama should tell the Brady Campaign to get lost, or gun owners will say that loud and clear to him on Nov. 4, Waldron concluded.

‘Acorn Uses Public Funds to Steal Elections , Now You r Gun Rights,’Says SAF



BELLEVUE, WA ACORN, the publicly-funded national organization linked to voter fraud in several states is now actively interfering with the exercise of firearm civil rights in New Jersey, and the Second Amendment Foundation is calling for an immediate federal investigation.

ACORN has, since 1998, received an estimated $31 million in government funding, said SAF founder Alan Gottlieb. Now they have intervened in a New Jersey gun rights case in defense of an illegal Jersey City one-gun-a-month ordinance that violates the state preemption statute.

For the past few election cycles, Gottlieb noted, ACORN has clearly grown more partisan toward the political Left. ACORN S PAC has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama for president. That s hardly surprising since he used to serve as their legal counsel and he taught the group about community organizing. ACORN and Obama are lockstep in seeking to destroy our Second Amendment rights.

The organization is currently under FBI investigation over allegations of voter fraud in several states, he added. Bad enough that ACORN is implicated in fraudulent activities in several states, but now an ACORN chapter in the Garden State is working against the ability of New Jersey gun owners to exercise a constitutionally-protected individual civil right to own a handgun.

It is an outrage that this group has intervened to defend an anti-gun ordinance that has already been declared illegal by the court, he observed. So long as ACORN accepts one penny of public funding, the organization should remain absolutely neutral on social issues, political campaigns and especially legal actions defending the right to keep and bear arms.

We call upon the FBI to expand the scope of its ACORN investigation and focus on the group s involvement in the Jersey City case, Gottlieb stated. We support Ohio Congressman John Boehner s request that the White House immediately block all federal funding of ACORN activities until this group s questionable activities are fully investigated. We want to know how they are paying for attorneys, and why Seton Hall s Center for Social Justice and the Public Interest Law Center are providing legal assistance to ACORN for this effort.

This is still the United States, not a socialist gulag Gottlieb concluded. Public money should not be given to private organizations which then turn around and utilize that funding to usurp the electoral process and erode constitutionally-guaranteed civil rights.

Presidential Election

There is no doubt that this will be the most important election in decades, maybe ever in the history of the country and it will be a very close election. So it is very important that you get out and all your family, friends and vote. Every vote could make the difference in the future of this country. Please pass this on to every one you know.

Where we are now

For the last two years the Democrats have had majority control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate under the ultra liberal control of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi from San Francisco and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid from Las Vegas.

Since they have taken over gas prices have gone to the highest they have ever been in this country. They have fought every chance to increase domestic production of oil and provide practical workable means of alternative energy.

They have been blaming President Bush for everything. Yet it is Congress that passes bills and writes them, not the President. They blame President Bush for our current economic problems but I have links to uTube with videos of the Democrats saying nothing was wrong with Fanny Mae and Freddy Mac while Senator McCain and President Bush warned they must be reformed or it would mean economic disaster which we now have. They will follow this section.

What we face

At best we face President McCain with a Democratic controlled congress.

At worst we face Senator Obama who in two years he has served has the most liberal record in the senate who makes the ultra liberal leaders of congress look like moderates. His becoming president and possibly a super Democrat majority in both houses of Congress will mean the Democrats can do ANY THING they want with out effective opposition from the Republicans. If that happens you can expect the following at minimum. These are the kinds of "CHANGE" Obama will give us.

Let the Republican's tax cuts expire which will increase everyone's taxes which is the last thing we need during this economic down turn.

They will increase taxes on everything including gas. They will forever ban using the resources God has blessed the United States with.

They will pull our troops out of Iraq before the country is stabilized which will then become a haven for Terrorists.

They will cut our military which President Clinton already weakened and make us weak and a target for terrorists.

Put in place liberal judges which will over turn the will of the people as they have in places like California and Massachusetts and given the homosexuals rights to marry. In the last 60 years liberal judges have taken away the right to pray in schools, in many places banned nativity scenes at Christmas. Who knows how they will further erode our first amendment rights to freely exercise our beliefs and our other freedoms.

Free speech? They will bring back the fairness act which will be the end of people bringing you the truth like Rush and Sean Hannity. Ever heard of political correctness? You haven't seen anything yet if they control all three parts of the executive branch of government. We've already seen how the liberal media has tried to suppress people who tell the truth about Oboma.

You can pretty much kiss your second amendment rights to keep and bear Arms good by. You think Clinton was bad, you've not seen anything yet. Barack is planing to restore the Clinton gun ban and add more weapons to it, ban most hunting ammo. He thought there was nothing wrong with the DC gun ban which the Supreme court over turned and argued for keeping it. On October 13th Obomma was endorsed by the anti-gun Brady Campaign.

According to the NRA this is Barack Obama's 10 Point Plan to "Change" The Second Amendment.

  1. Ban the use of firearms for home defense
  2. Pass Federal laws eliminating your Right-to-Carry
  3. Ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns
  4. Close down 90% of the gun shops in America
  5. Ban rifle ammunition commonly used for hunting and sport shooting
  6. Increase federal taxes on guns and ammunition by 500%
  7. Restore voting rights for five million criminals including those who have been convicted of using a gun to commit a violent crime.
  8. Expand the Clinton Semi-Auto ban to include millions more firearms
  9. Mandate a government-issued license purchase a firearm
  10. Appoint judges to the U.S. Supreme Court and Federal Judiciary who share his views on the Second Amendment.

They will give upwards of 12 million illegals amnesty and rights to vote, social security and medicare. Think this is far fetched? They have already tried to do these things and the Republicans stopped them.

Socialized medical care, you want to wait 6 months to have an operation? That is what happens in other countries that have it. There will be a shortage of Doctors because there will be no motivation for anyone to become a doctor. Our medical care is messed up Because Government already mettles with it. It sets the price for Medicare payments which are under the market cost so that cost is passed on to the rest of us in the form of increased prices. We also have increased prices because the Federal Government has mandated medical are for illegals and others who do not pay.

They will take us so far down the path of socialism (which has failed and bankrupted every country is has been tired) that it will be generations before we recover the country we grew up in if we ever can again. We are already bankrupt and indebted to other countries beyond our capacity to pay. When will they stop spending?!

Why Senator Barack Hussein Obama should not ever be elected president.

The list is so long I don't know if I can possibly remember it all to write it down. Most of this you probably have not heard because the liberal media is doing EVERY thing it can to get him elected. Something like 93% of the media admit to being Democrats, don't expect them to tell you the facts or even the truth. If your not a political activist like me or a talk radio listener you likely haven't heard much about the following.

His long association with left wing radicals like William Ayers a bomber from the weather underground, Rashid Khalidi, a pro-terrorist radical and one-time spokesman for the late PLO head Yasser Arafat, Louis Farrakhan head of the Nation of Islam and former member of the black panthers. (site only works in Internet Explorer, weird image map)

Still more questionable Obama associates

Rashid Khalidi is only one of many

Obama Affinity to Marxists Dates Back to College Days

Convicted felon Tony Rezko, Antoin Rezko: "Tony" is a businessman (slum lord) who has helped raise campaign money for Mr. Obama and many other Illinois politicians. He was convicted April 30, 2008 on 16 of 24 counts involving mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and aiding and abetting bribery." Rezko also helped Obama by his multi million dollar house. Obama's associations may haunt bid

Obama served as a trainer and legal counsel for ACORN which has been implicated in all kinds of voter fraud for years and is currently under investigation in 11 states. A lot has been made about Obama being a "Community Organizer" ACORN = Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. ACORN was also involved in the housing debacle.

The men who brought down Wall Street...

Here is a quick look into 3 former Fannie Mae executives who have brought down Wall Street.

Franklin Raines was a Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Fannie Mae. Raines was forced to retire from his position with Fannie Mae when auditing discovered severe irregularities in Fannie Mae's accounting activities. At the time of his departure The Wall Street Journal noted, '

Raines, who long defended the company's accounting despite mounting evidence that it wasn't proper, issued a statement late Tuesday conceding that 'mistakes were made' and saying he would assume responsibility as he had earlier promised. News reports indicate the company was under growing pressure from regulators to shake up its management in the wake of findings that the company's books ran afoul of generally accepted accounting principles for four years.' Fannie Mae had to reduce its surplus by $9 billion.

Raines left with a 'golden parachute valued at $240 Million in benefits'. The Government filed suit against Raines when the depth of the accounting scandal became clear.

. The Government noted, 'The 101 charges reveal how the individuals improperly manipulated earnings to maximize their bonuses, while knowingly neglecting accounting systems and internal controls, misapplying over twenty accounting principles and misleading the regulator and the public.

The Notice explains how they submitted six years of misleading and inaccurate accounting statements and inaccurate capital reports that enabled them to grow Fannie Mae in an unsafe and unsound manner.' These charges were made in 2006. The Court ordered Raines to return $50 Million Dollars he received in bonuses based on the miss-stated Fannie Mae pofits.

Tim Howard - Was the Chief Financial Officer of Fannie Mae. Howard 'was a strong internal proponent of using accounting strategies that would ensure a 'stable pattern of earnings' at Fannie. In everyday English - he was cooking the books. The Government Investigation determined that, 'Chief Financial Officer, Tim Howard, failed to provide adequate oversight to key control and reporting functions within Fannie Mae,'

On June 16, 2006, Rep. Richard Baker, R-La., asked the Justice Department to investigate his allegations that two former Fannie Mae executives lied to Congress in October 2004 when they denied manipulating the mortgage-finance giant's income statement to achieve management pay bonuses.

Investigations by federal regulators and the company's board of directors since concluded that management did manipulate 1998 earnings to trigger bonuses. Raines and Howard resigned under pressure in late 2004. Howard's Golden Parachute was estimated at $20 Million!

Jim Johnson - A former executive at Lehman Brothers and who was later forced from his position as Fannie Mae CEO. A look at the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight's May 2006 report on mismanagement and corruption inside Fannie Mae, and you'll see some interesting things about Johnson. Investigators found that Fannie Mae had hidden a substantial amount of Johnson's 1998 compensation from the public, reporting that it was between $6 million and $7 million when it fact it
was $21 million.' Johnson is currently under investigation for taking illegal loans from Countrywide while serving as CEO of Fannie Mae. Johnson's Golden Parachute was estimated at $28 Million.


FRANKLIN RAINES? Raines works for the Obama Campaign as Chief Economic

TIM HOWARD? Howard is also a Chief Economic Advisor to Obama

JIM JOHNSON? Johnson hired as a Senior Obama Finance Advisor and was selected to run Obama's Vice Presidential Search Committee

Don't Let E-Verify Die

From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President, Alliance

Grassfire has just learned that one of the most effective and
efficient resources in the ongoing struggle to protect citizens
from the infiltration of illegal aliens is in danger of being

E-Verify is a free, easy to use on-line system that provides
U.S. employers with a way to verify the employment eligibility
of all new hires. This program has the potential to end the
unlawful U.S. jobs magnet, and in short, is America's best
hope for solving the problem of illegal immigration.

Hailed as perhaps one of the only few un-broken parts of the
immigration system and it is now under attack from key members
of the Senate, most notably Majority Leader Reid and Senator Menendez.

Senator Menendez is blackmailing E-verify, and won't release
the bill for vote unless the Senate agrees to add another
550,000 permanent green cards to the 1.1 million immigrants
already expected to come in 2009.

Unless Menendez releases his hold, E-Verify will
die in November. This is outrageous and cannot happen!

Call your senators.

When calling, here are some talking points:

-Demand your Senators approach Sen. Menendez
urging him to release his grip on this bill (S. 6633) and then
fast-track it to a vote.

- Let them know that you are watching their actions and will
hold them accountable!

Again, we have only until November to impact this issue--one
of the only successful components of our broken immigration system.
Please take decisive action with us and call today.

The Sub - Prime disaster

If Obama gets elected and the socialist Democrats control both houses this country is doomed.. The Democrats are responsible for the current mess, not Bush other than he signed their bills instead of vetoing them. Barny Frank and Chris Dodd wrote the laws that "encouraged" banks and Fanny May and Freddie Mac to increase sub prime loans to people who could not afford houses. Those two government sponsored entities also gave large campaign contributions to the Democrats and gave several democrat congressmen including Frank and Dodd very low to no interest million dollar loans. Fudged their books so their CEO's got huge bonuses, the chairmen James A. Johnson and Franklin D. Raines of Franny May got millions in illegal bonuses and now are on Obama's advisory community and very likely will be given cabinet positions. Obama as a "community organizer" pressured banks to give sub prime loans to people who couldn't afford to buy a house. You should look in to how Obama got his house and the Chicago politics that got him in to office in the first place.

It was the Clinton Administration, the Democrats, especially Barney Frank and Chris Dodd and Barack Obama's own economic advisor, Frank Raines who are most responsible for this mess. All are Democrats.

McCain Says S.E.C. Chairman Should Be Fired

McCain warned of this two years ago


"type of loan that is offered at a rate above prime to individuals who do not qualify for prime rate loans. Quite often, sub prime borrowers are often turned away from traditional lenders because of their low credit ratings or other factors that suggest that they have a reasonable chance of defaulting on the debt repayment.
Sub prime loans tend to have a higher interest rate than the prime rate offered on traditional loans. The additional percentage points of interest often translate to tens of thousands of dollars worth of additional interest payments over the life of a longer term loan."

The same people who caused this problem are now writing the bill to "fix it"... Speaker Pelosi was blaming Bush for this, but if you notice since the Democrats have taken control of Congress gas and about everything else has gone up, and the stock market has gone to hell. My 401K is now worth less than what I've put into it. She also said Bush had squandered the surplus from the Clinton years. The only reason there was a surplus was because the Republicans were elected to stop them from passing national health care and other stupid ideas. The surplus was a lie anyway we still had a deficit and the only spending Clinton cut was defence which with his other policies was directly the cause of 9/11. Which wiped out any "surplus" we had. The economy was going into a recession at the end of the Clinton years because of the large tax increases he instituted took some time to take effect. The Democrats at the time accused Bush when he was running for his first term of "talking down the economy". They have done nothing but talk down the economy the entire time he has been in office. If Bush has any failings it is he has gone along with too much of the Democrats agenda. He let Ted Kennedy write the Education bill and then they blamed Bush for it's failings.. No matter what Bush has done the Democrats and their friends in the liberal media have criticized it.
The reason we are loosing all our companies is because thanks to the Democrats we have the highest corporate tax rate of any industrial country in the world. We are one of the few countries that has a Capital Gains tax.
Our energy costs are going though the roof because the Democrats have stopped every effort to develop the resources God blessed this country with for us to use. We have gone from importing 40% of our oil to 60% of our oil. For all of their complaining you'd think we get all of it from the middle east. We actually get most of our imported oil from Canada and Mexico. Most of our current problems are directly related to our rising energy costs and the devaluating of the dollar because of our ever growing debt.
If you don't believe what I'm saying you need to watch Glenn Beck on CNN, he's LDS and tells it like it is. I'd also recommend listening to Sean Hannidy's radio show and maybe Rush. Get an education on the issues and don't listen to the BS in the news papers, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC ect..
We need to get back to the limited Constitution government we should have instead of the bloated vastly over grown increasingly socialist government we have now.
