Bishop Lennon Issues Clarification on "Faithful Citizenship" Teaching:
". . . without Respect for Life, what is there left to respect?"
 
 
Cleveland Catholic Bishop Richard Lennon issued a statement today aimed at clarifying the USCCB document Faithful Citizenship and dispelling the errant thinking that has resulted in some from its faulty presentation: 
 
"I am concerned about many things that are being said about the teaching of the bishops. From listening to many good and sincere people who are preparing to fulfill their duty to vote as Catholics and citizens, I realize they are confused in light of what is being said by certain people. For example, we hear from some that the issues and concerns raised in Faithful Citizenship are all equally important as they all impact human life. This is not at all what Faithful Citizenship taught" (emphasis added).
 
Bishop Lennon goes on to differentiate between issues which involve intrinsically evil actions, which "must always be rejected and opposed and must never be supported or condoned," and what he terms "life-enhancing issues" which "only matter if human life itself is a value of fundamental priority and is always protected. If human life is expendable, then these other issues really lose much of their significance."
 
"Certainly, abortion and euthanasia, direct attacks on human life, stand out as intrinsically evil actions," states the bishop. "(The Church's) teaching on intrinsically evil actions admits of no exception or compromise."
 
"(The) teaching of the bishops on immigration  (and) other life-enhancing issues . . .  fundamentally differs from that on abortion and euthanasia. The teaching on abortion and euthanasia are based on "God's truth" regarding the dignity and sacredness of all human life," he emphasizes. As such, these issues are "essential and foundational and can never be compromised."

The statement concludes with a directive for all Catholics who are preparing for Election Day to be guided by this teaching, "for without Respect for Life, what is there left to respect?"
 
Cleveland Right to Life is sincerely grateful to Bishop Lennon for the pastoral concern he has shown his flock in issuing this statement. With this definitive guidance from the bishop, who alone has the authority to teach the mind of the Church within his diocese, all conflicting theories regarding Faithful Citizenship can be thrown away. Where a candidate stands on the fundamental Life issues of abortion and euthanasia cannot be glossed over by his relative position on other, lesser points. Every Catholic is called to place these Life issues in their proper place as the most essential of all voting considerations -- and not to compromise.
 

 
 Take Action!

ACORN'S Track record of fraud

Thanks to the Tennessee Eagle forum & Republican National Coalition for Life for forwarding the following....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

"Investigators (of ACORN's voter fraud) discovered that the entire offensive line of the Dallas Cowboys had signed up to vote in Las Vegas, unless it turns out that someone forged their signatures to make a quota.  The rules for this game were written in Chicago."

- Columnist Wes Pruden

 

"I want (conservatives) to hurt as much as we did (in 2004).  I want their spirits crushed, their backs broken. . . . We do that by making sure a record number of Americans reject conservative ideology, leaving it utterly discredited.  The day after the election, I want to see an electoral battlefield littered with defeated Republicans, their ranks demoralized, their treasury in heavy debt, and no real leadership to take the helm."

- Liberal blogger Markos Moulitsas of the DailyKos


FOLKS, we are not fighting for a party, we are flighting for our COUNTRY.  A free and fair election is the bedrock of a Constitutional Republic. Without that, we lose our nation.

1. The Pro-Barack Vote-Fraud Drive

SYSTEMIC corruption of our election process continues. Barack Obama and his old friends at ACORN and Project Vote are leading the way. This radical revolution is taking place in your backyard. And as I've reported before, this voter-fraud racket is on your dime.

On Monday, the two groups announced the wrap-up of a 21-state voter-registration drive targeting low-income people and minorities in such battleground states as Ohio, Pennyslvania, Colorado, Florida, New Mexico and Wisconsin.

What's wrong with that? For starters, these two groups are militantly partisan outfits purporting to engage in nonpartisan activity. And their campaign comes amid an avalanche of fresh voter-fraud allegations involving ACORN in many of those same states.

ACORN has helped register over 1.27 million people nationwide. It gets 40 percent of its revenues from the taxpayers, with the rest coming from left-wing heavyweights like billionaire George Soros and the Democracy Alliance.

Lefty lawyer Sandy Newman founded Project Vote, a 501(c)(3) organization, to register voters in welfare offices and unemployment lines with the explicit goal of turning back the Reagan revolution.

The two groups are inextricably linked - and at their nexus is Barack Obama. Despite his denials of any association with the group, Obama's political DNA is encoded with the ACORN agenda.

As I've noted previously ("ACORN: O's Ugly Ally," June 26), Obama trained ACORN members in Chicago. In turn, ACORN volunteers worked on his Illinois campaigns and ACORN's PAC endorsed him in this year's Democratic primaries back in February.

And Newman hired Obama in 1992 to lead Project Vote efforts in Illinois. The effort's motto: "It's a Power Thing." Today, the Obama campaign's "Vote for Change" registration drive is running in parallel with ACORN/Project Vote, targetting the same sorts of people.

It's an all-out scramble to scrape up every last unregistered voter sympathetic to Obama's big-government vision. "Our volume," Obama campaign manager David Plouffe bragged of the voter-registration program, "is going to be enormous."

Quantity over quality. That's the ACORN way - and the fraud allegations keep piling up:

* Yesterday, Nevada officials raided ACORN's Las Vegas office after election authorities accused the group of submitting multiple voter registrations with fake and duplicate names. Among the bogus monikers: names of former Dallas Cowboys players.

* Lake County, Ind., election officials this month rejected thousands of registration forms ACORN had turned in from its drives this summer. On a conference call yesterday, GOP officials noted that up to 11,000 of the applications were no good - tying up election officials and jeopardizing the voting rights of untold victims whose identities may have been stolen.

2. Thousands of voter registration forms fakes, officials say
CROWN POINT,
Indiana (CNN) -- More than 2,000 voter registration forms filed in northern Indiana's Lake County by a liberal activist group this week have turned out to be bogus, election officials said Thursday.

The group -- the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN -- already faces allegations of filing fraudulent voter registrations in Nevada and faces investigations in other states.

And in Lake County, home to the long-depressed steel town of Gary, the bipartisan Elections Board has stopped processing a stack of about 5,000 applications delivered just before the October 6 registration deadline after the first 2,100 turned out to be phony.

"All the signatures looked exactly the same," Ruthann Hoagland, a Republican on the board. "Everything on the card filled out looks exactly the same."

3.  Cuyahoga board probes ACORN voter registration drive

CLEVELAND -- A national organization that conducts voter registration drives for low-income people has curtailed its push in Cuyahoga County after the Board of Elections accused its workers of submitting fraudulent registration cards.

The board is investigating the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. Results of the inquiry could be turned over to the county prosecutor.

Board employees said ACORN workers often handed in the same name on a number of voter registration cards, but showing that person living at different addresses. Other times, cards had the same name listed, but a different date of birth. Still another sign of possible fraud showed a number of people living at an address that turned out to be a restaurant.

4.  Criminal inquiry possible in voter filings

At least six voter registration workers could face criminal investigations after turning in 200 to 300 fraudulent registration cards, according to the Milwaukee Election Commission and the activist group that employed them.

In one case, "one woman called us to complain because her husband has been dead for 10 years and a voter registration was submitted," said Sue Edman, the commission's executive director.

In other cases, deputy registrars working for ACORN were "making people up or registering people that were still in prison," said Carolyn Castore, ACORN's state political director.

In still other cases, workers used the same address for numerous voters or used driver's license numbers that did not fit the voters' birth dates, Edman said.

5. Michigan Branch of ACORN putting Through sizable, Duplicate, Fraudulent Voter Apps

The Michigan branch of Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN), located in Detroit, is being investigated after several municipal clerks reported fraudulent and duplicate voter registration applications coming through.

The majority of the fraudulent and duplicate applications are coming from the liberal ACORN group based in Detroit, Michigan, which now has ACORN investigating the problem once again as well as the Secretary of State's Office turning over some of those applications to the U.S. Attorney's Office.

According to the report by
Freep.com, the spokeswoman for the Michigan Secretary of State's Office, Kelly Chesney, says there is a "sizeable number of duplicate and fraudulent applications. And it appears to be widespread."

ACORN has registered 200,000 voters statewide in recent months with the use of paid, part time employees.

6.  GOP says voter registration groups employed felons

An official with the Republican National Committee said Thursday that a group involved with voter registration drives in Milwaukee is "engaged in systematic fraud and attempts to undermine our electoral system."

The comments came from Sean Cairncross, the party's chief lawyer, during a conference call with reporters in the wake of a report that the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) had hired at least seven felons as voter registration workers in the city.

The Journal Sentinel has reported on problems with voter registration cards submitted to the city by workers for the group and another liberal group, the Community Voters Project.

The newspaper reported on similar registration problems in 2004, which led to charges against some voter registration workers, as well as state reforms that bar groups from paying workers based on the number of signatures collected.

7.  7-yr-old Gets An ACORN vote

O'jahnae Smith is ready and registered to vote this November.

There's only one problem: She's 7 years old.

The Connecticut girl is 11 years too young - and nobody in her family knows how she ended up on a voter registration form submitted by ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

"She's registered to vote?" said a surprised Jerome Smith, O'jahnae's teenage brother. "She's too young to vote."

8.  I Voter, 72 Registrations

CLEVELAND - A man at the center of a voter-registration scandal told The Post yesterday he was given cash and cigarettes by aggressive ACORN activists in exchange for registering an astonishing 72 times, in apparent violation of Ohio laws.

"Sometimes, they come up and bribe me with a cigarette, or they'll give me a dollar to sign up," said Freddie Johnson, 19, who filled out 72 separate voter-registration cards over an 18-month period at the behest of the left-leaning Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now.

"The ACORN people are everywhere, looking to sign people up. I tell them I am already registered. The girl said, 'You are?' I say, 'Yup,' and then they say, 'Can you just sign up again?' " he said.

9.  Is ACORN Stealing the election?

Election Fraud: A radical group Barack Obama used to work for is committing voter-registration fraud in several states, ahead of the election. What does Obama know about this scam?

It's a legitimate question to raise now that the FBI has raided the offices of the nonprofit Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now in Nevada and North Carolina, two states where Obama and John McCain are running neck-and-neck. ACORN has registered bogus voters in both states.

The group's voter-registration fraud is rampant, and authorities plan a nationwide sweep of ACORN offices to collect records.

10.  ACORN's Senator

Election '08: Barack Obama wasn't just the second-largest recipient of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac political contributions. He was also the senator from ACORN, the activist leader for risky "affirmative action" loans.

Despite efforts to blame the rescue bill's failure on the GOP, it should be remembered that 95 Democrats — some 40% of the Democratic Caucus — withheld support. Obama himself also deserves blame — not only for the bill's failure, but also for the crisis it was designed to solve.

As the New York Times reports, "Aides to Mr. Obama said he had not directly reached out to try to sway any House Democrats who opposed the measure." Is the reason the fact that the slush fund for ACORN in the original bill, siphoning off 20% of any future profits for such activist groups, was trimmed from the tree?

Obama, who once represented ACORN in a lawsuit against the state of Illinois, was hired by the group to train its community organizers and staff in the methods and tactics of the late Saul Alinsky. ACORN would stage in-your-face protests in bank lobbies, drive-through lanes and even at bank managers' homes to get them to issue risky loans in the inner city or face charges of racism.

11.  Obama hid $800,000 payment to ACORN through "Citizen Services, Inc."

There's much more to the story of Obama's amended campaign finance reports than what Obama and the Obamedia will tell you. I will fill you in on what's missing in a moment. What we have here, essentially, is Obama using a non-profit group called Citizens Services Inc. as a front to funnel payments to ACORN for campaign advance work. Obama officials say it's no big deal. Nothing to see here. Move along. But where there's left-wing laundering smoke, there's fire. CSI has been the subject of a little-noticed complaint to the FEC by a Democrat who smelled something rotten going on between CSI, ACORN, and a left-wing 527, Communities Voting Together.

But first, the headline:
Obama to amend report on $800,000 in spending

12.  De-Fund ACORN, Republican Leader Insists
Friday, October 10, 2008


(CNSNews.com)
- "All federal funding to ACORN must be stopped," House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on Thursday, amid a widening probe into voter registration fraud by the liberal group.
 
Questionable or duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN, have turned up in as many as nine states, including so-called swing states.
 
The "nonpartisan" community-organizer group works to recruit low-income, Democrat-leaning voters. Its national Web site says the group has registered 1.3 million people nationwide for the Nov. 4 election.
 
"The latest allegations of voter registration fraud by ACORN are further evidence that this group cannot be trusted with another dollar of the taxpayers' money," Boehner said in a news release.

Dennis Kucinich Calls for Recount in New Hampshire

CONCORD, N.H. — Democrat Dennis Kucinich, who won less than 2 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary, on Thursday called for a recount to ensure that all ballots in his party’s contest were counted.

He cites “serious and credible reports, allegations and rumors” about the integrity of Tuesday results.

Kucinich alluded to online reports alleging disparities around the state between hand-counted ballots, which tended to favor Barack Obama, and machine-counted ones that tended to favor Hillary Clinton. He also noted the difference between pre-election polls, which indicated Obama would win, and Clinton’s triumph by a 39 percent to 37 percent margin.

Deputy Secretary of State David Scanlan responded that Kucinich is entitled to a statewide recount, but under New Hampshire law Kucinich will have to pay for it. Scanlan said he had “every confidence” the results are accurate.

Jennifer Brunner wants to go back to a failed system

This is the liberal way, when something has problems lets go back to a system that did not work, or so that the liberals can make sure that the liberals win. Liberals fear high tech because most of there un-educated voters can not understand how to use it. And that's the way the liberals want to keep it. The Democrats will never be for advancement of the poor because they will lose there vote. As Ann Coulter said "If The Democrats had any brains they would be Republicans"

FROM THE CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER

CLEVELAND -- The elections board in Ohio's biggest county may have a decision by Thursday whether to scrap its electronic voting system.

Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner wants Cuyahoga County to stop using its touch-screen system. She wants the county to switch to optical-scan machines for the state's March 4 primary.

Brunner cited security flaws that make the touch-screen machines vulnerable to tampering.

Board members listened to the opinions of voting-machine vendors and concerned citizens during a meeting today.

The board will meet again Thursday
