The World Bank has been feeding the Maoist cadres of Chairman Prachanda (or Prachandra, both spellings appear ) in Nepal as part of the peace accords, but ceased that today when they found that the numbers were being inflated in a scam. Former PM Prachanda is unavailable for comment as he’s suddenly fallen ill.

This story is being put out today as if it were fresh, but … it’s not quite. Kenneth J. Conner is stating that the FBI questioned him regarding appraisals of the Obama – Rezko properties, there’s a new story in the Washington Times. There are a few things to consider here before you go over the top with this breaking story:
- First, Conner is portrayed as a whistle-blower, but he also has a financial stake in this story with a multi-million dollar lawsuit in the works.
- Second, this is an old story that’s been out since at least mid-October, with some new details to add election day cache..
So this could be opportunistic timing that turns out to be nada, or maybe we will see some arrests or new indictments. Was there something fishy about the Obama land deal? My nose leads me to believe that something smells in the state of Illinois, but time will tell this tale.
Didn’t fall far from the tree.
UPDATE: Youtube has pulled the ad, I’ve found it at Liveleak and reposted:
Here’s the original Youtube link, now down if you click on it:
The Barack truth Squad is out in force, this one’s been pulled down at Youtube per commentor Aknot, he dropped off an article on Acorn and voter fraud in in Florida that’s worth reading however from 970WFLA:
Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark has notified the State Attorney and the Florida Division of Elections that her office has received 35 voter registration applications in the last two weeks from the organization Work for Progress that appear questionable and possibly fraudulent. The handwriting is virtually the same on multiple applications, and some have the same address. Some of the applications have no address or are incomplete in other ways.
One application was turned in incomplete, so elections staff sent a notice to the applicant. However, the voter responded that she has been registered to vote since 1995 and stated that she had not submitted a new registration application.
One of the bigger problems with these massive voter registration fraud efforts is how it shapes the polls and creates a false impression of reality. All pollsters weight their samples by the numbers of voters registered D or R in the states that record party affiliation. If there are 4X the numbers of Democrats registered than Republicans, they are going to sample more Democrats in their poll than Republicans, even if the state is traditionally red. This is skewing the view of the election.
UPDATE: Paul F Villarreal has a new link that works at Youtube here.
Meanwhile Barack’s Campaign is doing all they can to distance him from Acorn, but there is this quote right out of his own mouth:
I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.”
This is pretty much all you need to know about the current situation in a nutshell, straight to the essentials.
