It seems President Obama has, in fact, had an intimate connection with the radical, left-winger New Party/Acorn as far back as 1996. While he maintained during his presidential campaign that he only infrequently legally represented them, newly uncovered documents have confirmed that he literally “signed” on with them as an actual party member. It seems that more and more of his questionable political affiliations are being proven valid as actual documents that were previously hidden are being uncovered.
Who is Obama, really? This question is once again gaining significant interest with mainstream Americans as more irrefutable, negative information about his radical political affiliations continue coming to light.

Jenigh Garrett is a self-professed radical DOJ Voting Section lawyer who just filed a lawsuit to halt Florida from eliminating non-citizens from the voter rolls. She’s been a career opponent of state election integrity laws, along with numerous recent hires exposed by the PJ Media Every Single One series. She seems to have no grip whatsoever on the meaning of illegal and actually seems to embrace the notion.
According to recent news reports Ms. Garrett worked for nearly five years as an assistant counsel at the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund (LDF) focusing on voting-related litigation. She co-drafted the NAACP LDF’s amicus brief in Crawford v. Marion County Board of Elections, claiming that voter ID laws are unconstitutional (the Supreme Court rejected it in an opinion by Justice John Paul Stevens). From her perspective, anyone should be able to show up at voting poll and cast a vote without any proof of citizenship. That’s absurd; people routinely have to present a driver’s license or valid photo ID when shopping in many retail stores with a credit card.
Garrett also was a member of the NAACP litigation team in Hayden v. Paterson, arguing that felon disenfranchisement laws violate the Voting Rights Act (the Second Circuit court rejected it). In her opinion, convicted felons should be able to vote along with law abiding citizens. Gosh, why not allow convicted felons, the pillars of society, to have the same right to partake of the political process as law abiding citizens.
She’s a member of the American Constitution Society and made a recent presentation at Yale Law School on “The Future of Black Legal Scholarship and Activism.” Interestingly, the DOJ’s FOIA office rebutted the other activities listed on her resume.
Hmm, I wonder if the next thing on her agenda will be mandating the establishment of a voting poll at all prisons on election days. What could possibly go wrong by putting the inmates in charge of the incarceration facility.

As an honorably retired veteran and proud American citizen, I respect Memorial Day as being one of our most meaningful and important holidays because it’s the dedicated day for remembering those who died while serving our nation. Today, many Americans have either none or limited connection/knowledge regarding the service of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
On this Memorial Day I encourage you to take a few moments to think about and honor all of those service members who have gone before us. These are the people who are truly responsible for our freedom.
