Dear Vision America Action Friends,


Jerome Robert Corsi is best-known for his two New York Times bestsellers:
The Obama Nation and Unfit for Command (with co-author John O'Neill), which many considered a catalyst for the defeat of John Kerry in his bid for the Presidency in 2004.  Whatever else may be said of Jerome Corsi, everyone acknowledges his single-minded tenacity to get the facts and make his case as an investigative reporter and best selling author.  He is loved by conservatives and loathed by liberals across the nation.

He made headlines worldwide just two weeks ago when, as Nick Wadhams, of Time Magazine, reported "he was placed under house arrest upon arriving in Nairobi, Kenya, and detained for 4.5 hours before being returned to the US".  Corsi was in Kenya to investigate reports of Barack Obama being born in Kenya and accusations that Obama is not a US native born citizen.  According to WorldNetDaily, which publishes Corsi's column and by whom he is employed, he was in Kenya to answer "lingering questions" about Obama's ties to Prime Minister Raila Odinga, a subject that Corsi addresses in detail in his book, The Obama Nation.

Wadhams reported in his article on the incident,

The Obama campaign had no comment on Corsi's deportation. It denounced his book in a 41-page rebuttal.  (A rebuttal that Corsi rebutted but the mainstream press refused to cover)  If anything, Corsi seems to have seriously underestimated the broad Kenyan support for Obama, whose father was a Kenyan and who has several half-siblings here.  While there is animosity between Luos and Kikuyus and the tribes were responsible for much of the post election violence, Obama is immensely popular across ethnic lines in Kenya.  Ever since Odinga became Prime Minister in a power-sharing agreement with Kibaki, his own approval ratings have soared.

Last week I convened a conference call with several legal experts and friends to discuss the many lingering and unanswered questions that continue to circulate regarding the birth and citizenship of Barack Obama.  That led to a several calls with Jerome Corsi 

These are legitimate questions that can easily be answered with proper documentation, which to my knowledge have not been forthcoming.  From those calls came a decision to do something to find the answers.  Several men contributed to underwrite the expenses of Corsi traveling to Hawaii in order to put to bed rumors regarding the birthplace of Barack Obama who currently leads in virtually every presidential tracking poll in his bid to be President of the United States.

My wife and I decided to contribute to help underwrite his expenses out of our personal bank account.  No Vision America money has been expended.  I truly believe that our President should be above reproach and I want to help clear Obama's name if the allegations of his foreign birth are incorrect.  Likewise, I want to expose the fraud if one has been perpetrated upon the American people.

Earlier this year another interested citizen, Floyd Brown, went to Hawaii and could find no one who would attest to having attended Barack Obama's birth in Hawaii.  There are, however, members of his own paternal family in Kenya who have publicly stated that he was born there.  Lawsuits have been prepared for individual voters from Maine to American Samoa to demand that his name be removed from the ballot if the facts bear out that he was not born in Hawaii as he has repeatedly asserted.

By the way, many find it interesting that Obama, who would not suspend his campaign to address the "once in a lifetime tsunami" that hit our financial markets, did so to see his ailing grandmother in Hawaii, at the same time these questions have resurfaced regarding his birthplace.  Especially in light of the questionable relationship, he has had over the years with his maternal grandmother.  Either Barack Obama is the great family man that his publicists have portrayed him to be, or he is a great fraud, which places America in grave peril.  We hope to know more within a few days. 

Jerome Corsi landed Wednesday evening in Honolulu and will stay until he discovers which it is or confirms the conclusive information he needs is not available, which in itself will be a story the American people deserve to know.

What can you do? 

First, you can pray that the truth be revealed.  Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free."  This nation was built on truth.  Our Founding Fathers wrote in the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident…"

Second, please forward this email to your friends.  Let's awaken conservatives all across America to the issues at stake in this election.

Third, you can send us the largest gift you have ever given to our work.  If we discover that Barack Obama has not been telling the truth about his place of birth, we will face a Herculean task of alerting the people of the fraud we have uncovered.  It is clear that the mainstream media have already crowned Barack Obama as the next President, and they will not willingly report on this story.  Just ask yourself why ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN have failed to cover this story.  They certainly had the resources to send hundreds of reporters and thousands of investigators into Alaska to search for dirt on Sarah Palin.  Moreover, look at the number of hit pieces on Joe the Plumber all because he dared to challenge Barack Obama's tax policy.  We will need money to publish this story and you can help.  Please send us the largest gift you can.

We have heard from many of you that you have not been receiving our email updates.  I sincerely apologize for that.  We recently moved our email list to a new server and we have faced numerous glitches but our capable Internet staff now tells me they have resolved all the issues.  Needless to say, the difficulty in delivering our emails has severely hindered our ability to raise the capital we need to continue our groundbreaking work.  Please consider making a generous gift to our work as we face the final week of the most important election season of our lifetime.  You can help me the most by sending the gift to our C4 which is not tax deductible but it is God-blessable!

ACORN has become front and center in the closing days of the 2008 Presidential campaign, and for the first time people are taking a long look at this organization which receives tens of millions of tax payers dollars each election cycle.  It seems almost every day now we hear of additional allegations and subsequent investigations into voter fraud and fraudulent voter registrations across the nation and particularly in battle ground states like Ohio where there are as high as 200,000 votes that are being called into question.

Every American should be demanding that full disclosure be made of the methods and tactics used by ACORN.  Record numbers of registrations have been recorded by ACORN, and American's have a right to be assured that their vote not be cancelled out by an ineligible voter.  It appears the old adage that an acorn doesn't fall far from the tree is true.

ACORN was founded by sixties radical Wade Rathke, a former member of the radical Students for a Democratic Society which he dropped out of in 1968 to protest the Viet Nam War.  In 1970 he and Gary Delgado founded the Association for Community Organizations for Reform Now, ACORN, to aid lower income families.  Today there are over 170,000 dues paying member families and 82 staffed offices across the United States.  The ACORN family of organizations includes radio stations, publications, housing development and ownership (ACORN Housing), and a variety of other supports for direct organizing and issue campaigns, such as Project Vote and the Living Wage Resource Center. ACORN International has recently opened staffed offices in Lima, Peru and Toronto and Vancouver, Canada.

On July 9th, 2008, the New York Times reported that Dale Rathke, the brother of ACORN's founder Wade Rathke, was found to have embezzled $948,607.50 from the group and affiliated charitable organizations in 1999 and 2000. ACORN executives, including Wade Rathke, did not inform the whole board, or law enforcement, but signed an enforceable restitution agreement with the Rathke family to repay the amount of the embezzlement. Wade Rathke stated to the Times that "the decision to keep the matter secret was not made to protect his brother but because word of the embezzlement would have put a 'weapon' into the hands of conservatives.

Oh really?  Give me a break!!!

A whistleblower revealed the embezzlement in 2001; the Rathke brothers both departed ACORN earlier this year.

Now we have reports breaking every day of allegations of illegal activities throughout the organization.  Our Founders shed their blood to secure a nation of free men and women who would have the right to vote for their leaders, but from the first day of our nation's founding, voters were assigned the responsibility of meeting certain minimal requirements of citizenship to vote.  Voting is a privilege as well as a right, but ACORN now registers voters in predominantly under privileged areas by the incentive plan.  A practice of paying their registrars based on performance which any fair minded citizen ought to see as a formula for disaster.  While the folks I work with every election cycle volunteer their time and services to assist in voter registration, ACORN receives millions to pay their workers who in turn can take a modest salary and turn it into lucrative income by falsifying records or splitting the incentive with registrants. 

I have no doubt that the vast majority of workers for ACORN are abiding by the law and doing good work.  What I would like to know is how many are not.  Every corrupted record is a cancellation of one vote of a legitimate voter who played by the rules.


Richmond, VA  October 22, 2008 -- Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt, the event coordinator, announced the "Virginia, Stand Up For Jesus Prayer Rally" will be held at the Capitol Square Bell Tower, within earshot of the Governor's Mansion on Saturday, November 1, 2008 beginning at 10 am.

The event will allow Virginia citizens to honor, support, and pray for the six Virginia State Police Chaplains who were recently forced to resign for praying publicly "in Jesus' name." 86 Virginia Pastors pledged to mobilize their churches to vote in response to this chaplain crisis, but Virginia Governor Tim Kaine personally signed a letter rejecting their request to reverse his ban on using the word "Jesus" in public prayer.

In response to the prayer ban, six Troopers took a stand for Christ, by "turning in their chaplain badge" rather than disobey orders or deny Jesus. Now Virginians can rally to stand up for Jesus, pray publicly in Jesus' name (as the troopers may not do), and pray that God and government will reinstate the chaplains with liberty.

"As a former Navy chaplain I faced the exact same dilemma as these Police chaplains, either disobey orders or deny Christ. I was court-martialed for disobeying orders by 'worshiping in public' in uniform, and discharged for the 'crime' of praying in Jesus name in uniform outside of Sunday chapel. But Congress later vindicated my stand, and ordered the Navy to rescind the same bad 'prayer policy' enforced against me in court," says Klingenschmitt. "Now other military chaplains are free again to pray publicly 'in Jesus name,' but it cost me a 16-year career and a million dollar pension," he added. Klingenschmitt now travels the country defending others who pray "in Jesus name" and has helped win victories in OH, IN, PA, OR, FL, OK, the U.S. military and Congress.

The free, non-partisan Virginia rally will include Dr. Scarborough, other pastors, policymakers, political, civic, and church leaders, a praise band, and a time of prayer for the chaplains, our nation and our government. The event happens from 10-11 am (arrive at 9:30) at the Capitol SquareBell Tower,900 Bank Street, in downtown Richmond, VA.

Be sure your Pastor shows your congregation the brief Video Sermon on "Same-Sex Unions and Child Sacrifice" in the amazing first issue of This new web journal shows how Obama and McCain square-up with the Bible on two paramount issues -- and clearly explains, with footnotes and video support, that pastors can indeed boldly preach Scripture, NAME NAMES, and explain to their congregations where their would-be leaders stand on policy issues informed by God's Word.
