Comrade De Blasio Takes Over

My article from the Jan. 2, 2014 issue of FrontPage Magazine: Comrade De Blasio Takes Over By Matthew Vadum Communist-sympathizing radical Bill de Blasio has laid out an ambitious, far-left agenda as he begins what is destined to be a disastrous reign as New York’s 109th mayor. Leveling left-wingers, with their perverse obsession with income equality, are looking eagerly to the city in the hope that the new mayor will “morph New York City’s municipal machinery into a closely watched laboratory for populist theories of government that have never before been enacted on such a large scale,” according to a … Continue reading Comrade De Blasio Takes Over

Clash of the ACORN Titans

Later today ACORN whistleblower Marcel Reid debates Bertha Lewis, the former squatter who presided over the collapse of the corrupt community organizing outfit ACORN in 2010. The one-hour matchup takes place at 10 o’clock a.m. (Eastern) on WPFW 89.3 FM (Washington, D.C.). Listen live online here. Reid was forced out of ACORN in 2008 after she demanded the group explain massive financial irregularities. She then co-founded a watchdog group called ACORN 8 with other whistleblowers. Reid contributed to the new book Race, Power & Politics: Memoirs of an ACORN Whistleblower, by Michael McCray. Lewis is now president of the Black Institute, an ACORN-like organization in New York … Continue reading Clash of the ACORN Titans

After encouraging child prostitution, now ACORN is suddenly worried about it.

The Black Institute, a new ACORN front group created by ACORN’s final national chief organizer Bertha Lewis, has published a deliciously ironic blog post: An estimated 300,000 new girls enter the commercial sex industry each year. The Department of Justice estimates that the most frequent age of entry into the commercial sex industry in the United States is 12-14 years old. A demographic study of sex trafficking in the United States has never been done, so no exact figures are known, but, according to the FBI, for arrests under the age of 18, Black children make up 55 % of … Continue reading After encouraging child prostitution, now ACORN is suddenly worried about it.

Ex-ACORN organizer launches reincarnation

WND reports that Bertha Lewis, ACORN’s terminal national chief organizer, has started an ACORN wannabe group. (I wrote about Lewis and her lying a few days ago on this blog.) Here’s the top of the WND piece: The former national chief organizer of the advocacy group ACORN has launched a new left-wing group aimed at carrying on ACORN’s radical un-American agenda, as predicted by WND author Matthew Vadum. Bertha Lewis, who last year called the tea party a “bowel movement,” has launched the New York-based Black Institute. The group’s agenda is almost identical to that of ACORN, which filed Chapter 7 … Continue reading Ex-ACORN organizer launches reincarnation

More BS from Boss “Bowel Movement” Bertha

ACORN’s terminal national chief organizer, the pathological liar Bertha Lewis, thinks people are stupid and can be fooled easily. This is the charming lady who referred to the Tea Party as a “bowel movement.” She’s still claiming the 2009 videotapes showing ACORN employees encouraging undercover conservative activists to set up a brothel for pedophiles were “doctored.” Give it up, Bertha. * * * * * America needs to know that ACORN is restructuring in time to help re-elect President Obama in 2012. Obama used to work for ACORN and represented the group in court as its lawyer. These radical leftists … Continue reading More BS from Boss “Bowel Movement” Bertha

Matthew Vadum’s adventure on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”

Back on Oct. 30, 2008, I appeared on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” to talk about ACORN and community organizers. Here is a link to the video (the show’s website won’t allow embeds). About a month or more before the air date, I traveled to New York City to tape a segment with John Oliver. Being in hostile territory (ideologically) I thought of the nastiest things I could say about ACORN and community organizers and I said them. There is no point, after all, in going on a left-wing show and playing along with the puppet masters. (Some conservatives criticized … Continue reading Matthew Vadum’s adventure on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”
