Lean Left Leans Stupid

Memeorandum will lead the curious reader to many curious and wonderful things. KTK at Lean Left tries to rain, inasmuch as a douchebag can rain, on the parade led by Warner Todd Huston on Publius' Forum. It's unclear whether KTK of the indeterminate sex even knows its shot is retarded, because KTK doesn't appear to have the slightest idea of what it's talking about. Lemme explain what's going on for those who might otherwise not understand Huston's claim or the merits of KTK's snotty, ignorant counterclaims.

Huston buries his lede, but after a few opening paragraphs that make unsupported claims that have little bearing on the merits of his story, gets to it. Here is a list of Non-Profit Corporations registered in New Orleans, Louisiana to Wade Rathke, followed by the list registered to his evil albino twin brother Dale.

Now I have done some similar searches myself. Here is a simpleminded search for non-profit corporations with ACORN in their names. If you look you'll see several ACORNs that are incorporated in New Orleans, including ARKANSAS ACORN HOUSING CORPORATION, ACORN TENANT UNION TRAINING AND ORGANZING PROJECT INC, ACORN TELEVISION IN ACTION FOR COMMUNITIES INC, ACORN LAW FOR EDUCATION REPRESENTATION & TRAINING, ACORN INSTITUTE INC, ACORN INTERNATIONAL INC, ACORN HOUSING CORPORATION OF PENNSYLVANIA INC, ACORN COMMUNITY LAND ASSOCIATION, ACORN COMMUNITY LAND ASSOCIATION OF ILLINOIS, ACORN COMMUNITY LAND ASSOCIATION OF LA, and ACORN COMMUNITY LAND ASSOCIATION OF PENNSYLVANIA INC.ACORN For Sale The majority of these are incorporated at 2609 Canal Street. This is 2609 Canal Street to the left. It is for sale since the recent shakeups in ACORN, as a result of ACORN getting caught in numerous illegal activities.

Quick question for those who want to follow the logic. Why would the owner of the building sell it if ACORN got in legal trouble? Wouldn't they just get new tenants? Why would the owner sell if it was losing a tenant that is going broke? It wouldn't, unless the owner was the tenant in question.

Also note ACORN and LOCAL 100 SEIU appear in plain sight, in the same type of signage, on the second floor balcony. That doesn't happen unless they both put their signage up at the same time. We know that SEIU and ACORN were formed by the Rathke brothers. They're twins so I can't tell them apart. They are also huge, ginormous douchebags so I don't care to either.

Further chasing down ACORN starts to reveal its confusing maze of twisty little corporations, all supposed to do about the same thing (community organizing, which is Marxist agitation) but some that are considered to be tax-deductible and others that are not, some that are eligible for federal contributions and others that are not, but with a single reporting structure that mingles the money from all the parts together in a manifestly illegal manner.

The next step is here, which reveals all the ZIP+4s at 2609 Canal Street.

Now let's start drilling into the non-profit corporations registered in the ZIP 70119. How many nonprofits do you suppose are registered in the 70119 ZIP code? There are 250! That's a lot. How many of them do you suppose are all registered to 2609 Canal Street? Obviously, since the building is already for sale, ACORN has been busy cleaning up evidence of all the corporations Let's find out.

I count 28 non-profit corporations at the 2609 Canal St. address according to my manual search through the Melissa database. That is a lot of non-profit corporations, all of them in the same plantation style townhouse. And remember, these are only the non-profit corporations. Elysian Fields Partnership is the paymaster of all the ACORN and SEIU associated corporations, is at 2609 Canal St. and it isn't listed in Melissa.

The point is that there are a ton of these non-profit corporations. What is important about non-profit corporations? While deductible non-profit corporations are subject to extensive SEC scrutiny, non-deductible, non-charitable non-profit corporations do not have to file anything other than a tax return. If a concern consists of both charitable and non-charitable non-profits all mixed together, with common leadership and without strict firewalls to prevent the mixing of different colors of money, then what you end up with is a money laundering operation.

This is very similar to what Enron did. And what Enron did was illegal enough that the architects of its corporate structure went to jail for their trouble.

KTK claims that these interlocking corporations with obscured leadership and without strict firewalls between the different firms in the pile are typical of all business concerns in the US.

Apparently Huston doesn’t know, or doesn’t care, that large organizations routinely create separate legal sub-divisions to carry out particular activities. Even the most basic profile of any large company will include an organization chart of its wholly- and partially-owned subsidiaries, joint ventures, and other legal affiliates. It’s standard practice for both profit-making and non-profit entities, simply because it’s easier, and makes the accounting clearer, to have distinct legal entities for distinct operating divisions.
This confuses the difference between divisions of a corporation and separate corporations. It's easy enough to break up a balance sheet or a cash flow statement by the different divisions. But when you have different corporations glommed together in some sort of overarching structure, each separate corporation needs to have a completely separate balance sheet, income and cash flow statements. The problem with the ACORN frankenstein monster is that it takes government money so it has higher standards it has to meet. But it doesn't as a whole. Some pieces seem to meet the higher standards, but evidence keeps on showing up that proves government money is being spent for illegal things, for instance to get out the vote for one political party, or to suppress voting by the other political party. This money is getting laundered through the other corporations, funneled from one to another, then passed to a third, then kicked back to a fourth, then transferred to a fifth, then finally spent on behalf of a sixth.

Imagine if the political party you oppose were doing this, and you will see the problem.

Finally KTK shoots its load with an insane claim about Kellogg.

I presume Huston is feverishly beavering away right at this moment, just about to blow the lid off the Kellog’s corporation  (secretly the unknown owners of Keebler Cookies, Eggo Waffles, Famous Amos, and a whole bunch of other stuff, including a shitload of entities very sneakily incorporating the word “Kellogg” in their names, all of them hidden on a little-known publicly-accessible document called an “Annual Report”, filed with the SEC and available from the company’s own Web site).
Trouble is I went and checked Kellogg's Annual Report. There is only one corporation to handle Rice Krispies, Corn Flakes, Keebler Elves, Famous Amos and the rest of the product lines. Check it out for yourself.

The bottom line is that when you have a big mess of interlocking corporations with interlocking directors (an illegal practice, by the way) it is a sign that you are looking at a criminal concern. This kind of structure is made to launder money. And when we are talking about an organization that takes money from the government to register voters only from one political party, that makes partisan political endorsements, and that runs get out the vote operations for that same preferred political party, then what you're talking about is money taken from the taxpayers in order to promote a single political party and crush any opposition.

And that isn't freedom. That is fascism, baby.

KTK doesn't care though. KTK likes fascism as long as Democrats do it. Because he, she, or it is a teabagging, salad-tossing, progressive douchebag just like Karl Marx, Joe Stalin, Adolf Hitler, Mao Tse Tung, Che Guevara and Pol Pot, mass murderers all. So he, she, or it lies. Because the truth about his, hers, or its beliefs is intolerable when the truth is so inhumanly horrible.

What are all those corporations I am supposed to have created? I didn't file for them all. Some of them were filed for by cementary residents. Others by the front line of the Dallas Cowboys. Others were clearly created by Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble. You cannot tie my name to these shell corporations and their fraud, copper! You can't catch me!

Why pick on Progressives?

Progressives are neo-barbarian, luddite fools who want to replace all scientific progress with their failed, pseudo-scientific, utopian fairy tale and take us back to the paleolithic period. In other words they are douchebags.

Q: Do you have a problem with Progressive Insurance?

We don't have a problem with their insurance product. But the company is also a major giver of money to politically progressive causes, and because of that the owners and managers are total douchebags.
