ACORN Playing Behind Scenes Role in ‘Occupy’ Movement

Many of American Third Party members and staff warily eyed the events at the “Occupy” protests. It was suspected that the protests were occupied by the pro-Obama crowd: SEIU, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Danny Glover, etc.

ACORNThe Wall Street “Occupy” demonstrations were occupied by folks with designer jeans, iPads, iPhones, and pricey sneakers. Tables were loaded with boxes of Pizza and bottled water. ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, and other media had their live-feed satellite transmission equipment and cameras.

The entire movement appeared to be a staged media set complete with actors and scripts. Does that sound spontaneous? Or organized?

Now we are told by Fox News that ACORN is involved in this “leaderless” movement:

The former New York office for ACORN, the disbanded community activist group, is playing a key role in the self-proclaimed “leaderless” Occupy Wall Street movement, organizing “guerrilla” protest events and hiring door-to-door canvassers to collect money under the banner of various causes while spending it on protest-related activities, sources tell

The former director of New York ACORN, Jon Kest, and his top aides are now busy working at protest events for New York Communities for Change (NYCC). That organization was created in late 2009 when some ACORN offices disbanded and reorganized under new names after undercover video exposes prompted Congress to cut off federal funds.

Those who contribute don’t know the money is going to fund the protests, a source said:

Those who contribute don’t know the money is going to fund the protests, the source said.

“They give contributions because we say if they do we can fix things – whatever specific problem they’re having in their area, housing, schools, whatever … then we spend the contributions paying staff to be at the protests all day, every day. That’s where these contributions – the community’s money – is going,” the source said.

“They’re doing the same stuff now that got ACORN in trouble to begin with. And yes, we’re still ACORN, there is a still a national ACORN.”

Another source, who said she was hired from a homeless shelter, said she was first sent to the protests before being deployed to Central Islip, Long Island, to canvass for a campaign against home foreclosures. Source: Fox News

Former ACORN members are being paid:

Sources said NYCC has hired about 100 former ACORN-affiliated staff members from other cities – paying some of them $100 a day – to attend and support Occupy Wall Street. Dozens of New York homeless people recruited from shelters are also being paid to support the protests, at the rate of $10 an hour, the sources said. Source: Fox News

The well meaning “Occupy” movement is now a vehicle for the disbanded ACORN organization. For ACORN this is business as usual.

A3P Director James Edwards Interviews Pat Buchanan

Pat Buchanan made his third appearance on the award-winning program The Political Cesspool to talk about his most recent book; Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?

“America was born a Western Christian republic,” writes Buchanan, “but is being transformed into a multiracial, multicultural, multilingual, multiethnic stew of a nation that has no successful precedent in the history of the world.”

“Where once we celebrated the unity, the melting pot and shared experience, that the Depression and World War gave us, our elites today proclaim, ‘Our diversity is our greatest strength!’—even as racial, religious, and ethnic diversity are tearing nations to pieces.”

Severe Racial Discrimination Towards Whites at University of Wisconsin

A pair of studies released recently by the Center for Equal Opportunity, a libertarian think tank, reveal severe discrimination based on race and ethnicity in undergraduate and law school admissions at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with African Americans and Latinos given preference over whites and Asians. The studies are based on data collected by the University itself, which they refused to release until a state supreme court ruling on a lawsuit filed by the Center for Equal Opportunity.

The odds ratio favoring African Americans and Hispanics over whites was 576-to-1 and 504-to-1, respectively, using the SAT and class rank while controlling for other factors. Thus, the median composite SAT score for black admittees was 150 points lower than for whites and Asians, and the Latino median SAT score was 100 points lower. Using the ACT, the odds ratios climbed to 1330-to-1 and 1494-to-1, respectively, for African Americans and Hispanics over whites.

For law school admissions, the racial discrimination found was also severe, with the weight given to ethnicity much greater than given to, for example, Wisconsin residency. Thus, an out-of-state black applicant with grades and LSAT scores at the median for that group would have had a 7 out 10 chance of admission and an out-of-state Hispanic a 1 out of 3 chance—but an in-state Asian with those grades and scores had a 1 out of 6 chance and an in-state white only a 1 out of 10 chance.

CEO chairman Linda Chavez noted: “This is the most severe undergraduate admissions discrimination that CEO has ever found in the dozens of studies it has published over the last 15 years.” Chavez also noted: “The studies show that literally hundreds of students applying as undergrads or to the law school are rejected in favor of students with lower test scores and grades, and the reason is that they have the wrong skin color or their parents came from the wrong countries.”

Roger Clegg added: “The latest census figures have dramatically underscored that America is increasingly multiethnic and multiracial. In such country, is simply untenable for our institutions—including public universities—to engage in politically correct but divisive and unfair discrimination.”

When Clegg tried to hold a press conference to address the concerns, a mob of leftist students and other assorted sheeple stormed the venue, forcibly took over the microphone, and forced Clegg to leave.

Clegg also said that the University of Wisconsin was one of the most racist and least cooperative schools they encountered. He described the school as “certainly toward the less-cooperative end of the spectrum” since “maybe they knew they had something to hide.” He also said that “the odds ratios were the highest (that is, the worst) for undergrad admissions of any we’ve ever seen.”

Clegg denounced racial discrimination, including ‘affirmative action’, and said that it does not make sense in modern America. “The use of racial and ethnic preferences will end, sooner or later” he says, adding “they cannot be justified, they are legally vulnerable, and most Americans dislike them. They become harder and harder to justify with every tick of the clock, as the Jim Crow era becomes more and more distant, and as America becomes increasing a multiethnic and multiracial society. The fact is that it is simply untenable for our government institutions, including public universities, to have policies in 2011 that discriminate on the basis of skin color and what country someone’s ancestors came from.”

Clegg points out that “America is more and more a multiracial and multiethnic country,” adding the details that “since the last census, the Latino population has grown by 43.0 percent, and the Asian population has grown even faster: by 43.3 percent. The black population has grown by only 12.3 percent, and the white population by only 5.7 percent.”

Clegg sums up his argument as “In such a country, as I said, it is simply untenable for the government to classify and sort people on the basis of skin color and national origin, and to treat its citizens differently—some better, some worse—depending on which silly little box is checked. In a country like ours, the only system that will work is one where the government plays no favorites. Anything else is a recipe for disaster—for division, strife, and balkanization.”

Polls of Hispanics have shown majority or supermajority support for affirmative action programs. White voters, the slowest growing demographic group, are the most likely to oppose affirmative action. Unfortunately, unless we see a cultural shift in opinion, changing demographics combined with the liberal bent of the court system could very well lead to the “division, strife, and balkanization” that Clegg fears.

A3P Metro Meetup Report

A3P Metro MeetupThe American Third Position, Metro N.Y. Chapter hosted an October Meetup for local members this past week.

We discussed increasing activism and how to grow party membership and a sustainable political movement.

The meeting began with up-to-the-minute Metro N.Y. area activism. Since January the Metro N.Y. A3P attended a variety of local outdoor shows and events of interest to white Americans.

Next we talked about National A3P happenings

  • Harry Bertram’s W.Va. campaign for Governor, other A3P chapters (CA, AZ, IN, PA)
  • Ralph Brandt’s upcoming campaign for office in Mesa, AZ
  • Website updates
  • Membership
  • Party news
  • The Nationalist Times
  • Weekly leadership conferences

Upcoming A3P N.Y. Metro tasks will be to report on the “Occupy Wall Street” protests; keeping an eye on the New Jersey E-Verify legislation; and increasing local activism.

How can we increase awareness and membership?

Techniques of effective activism involves

  • Continuously recruiting new members
  • Use current members effectively by making it easy for them to volunteer for effective roles
  • Meet regularly so people have the opportunity to network, inspire and be inspired by each other

Methods to actively engage the public at implicitly white events is best achieved by having an Information Booth–with an A3P banner–or Literature Table available for distribution of free brochures, pamphlets, cards, and leaflets. Like-minded white Americans and others can help themselves to these materials. Some types of events are

  • Political events
  • Ethnic events and Festivals (Italian, Polish, German, etc.)
  • Parades (such as the recent Columbus Day Parade)
  • Concerts
  • Sporting events (Harry Bertram actively campaigned at the WVU football games)
  • Second Amendment gun shows

Regularly scheduled Meetups is an effective tool to greet new members and keep abreast of A3P activity. A future project is to organize regional A3P Meetups nationwide.

The Importance of Columbus Day

James Edwards | Columbus Day has suffered an unprecedented diminution in importance in recent years, at least in the eyes of the solons of modern American culture.

Why? Columbus Day celebrates Christopher Columbus, the first European (white person) to come to the Western Hemisphere and make the presence permanent. Columbus Day, in other words, celebrates the advent of the White race in the so-called New World of the Americas. This, of course, is the last thing that the multicultural Left wants celebrated.

Their guiding principal, invented by both Trotsky and the Cultural Marxists at approximately the same time, is best summed up by the late, unlamented Susan Sontag’s famous quote, “The white race is the cancer of human history.” Who wants to celebrate cancer? Consequently, Columbus Day has been transformed from a holiday into an occasion for weeping, wailing, rending of garments and gnashing of teeth by the Left.

We at The Political Cesspool Radio Program, however, beg to differ, and think it’s high time to challenge this modern orthodoxy regarding Columbus and Columbus Day.

Consider, if you will, the Western Hemisphere when Columbus discovered it in 1492. The entire continent is estimated to have sustained only a few hundred thousand people. It was a huge undeveloped wildlife preserve; its population stuck for the most part in the New Stone Age. And despite what the Left would have you believe, it was not populated by peace-loving early environmentalists.

The indigenous inhabitants were bloodthirsty savages living in a state of nature in which life, as Hobbes famously noted, was “nasty, brutish and short.” The highest level of civilization achieved in the Hemisphere by the indigenous was that of the Aztecs, famous for capturing young men from neighboring tribes for ritual sacrifice and ripping their still-beating hearts from their chests.

Where whites have gone and remained in control, civilization and prosperity have flourished, not only in North America, but all over the world. The only time any nations in sub-Saharan Africa have flourished by modern standards was under white rule. Rhodesia, once called “the breadbasket of Africa,” became Zimbabwe, the basket case of Africa, when whites were guilt-tripped into turning over the reins of government to blacks, the indigenous population of the region. Ditto for South Africa.

The primary beneficiaries of white rule are the nonwhites that live in white dominated counties. Blacks in America, for instance, whipped into an inconsolable frenzy by the Left regarding their imagined mistreatment by whites, are the only oppressed people in the world who consider themselves impoverished but routinely own and use cars, cell phones, computers, iPads, flat-screen TVs, washing machines, clothes dryers and dishwashers, and live in centrally air-conditioned homes with yards, driveways and carports. They are also provided enough free food by the government that they suffer, when left to their own devices, from morbid obesity.

They apparently don’t travel abroad much, however, because if they did, they’d see how favorably their imagined poverty stacks up to the real poverty suffered by people in El Salvador, Honduras, Peru, Nigeria, Cambodia, or almost any other country without a sizable white population in charge of the government.

In fact, the only way that non-whites live in a First World environment is when they are fortunate enough to live in a predominately white nation. When they reach critical mass, or gain political control, that nation will assuredly plummet to Third World status.

Places in America that resemble the Third World (Detroit, East St. Louis, Oakland, ect.) almost always have a predominantly nonwhite population coupled with nonwhite political leadership.

The most fortunate day in the ancestral history of any American, regardless of race, color or creed, is the day when one of their ancestors boarded a conveyance to America. This is true whether the conveyance was a luxury ocean liner, a jet airplane, or a leaky slave ship. And the reason America still attracts immigrants from all over the world is because America is a white nation, and consequently enjoys a level of prosperity only dreamed of in most of the world. Whites are the key to that prosperity. If the nonwhites of the world knew what was good for them they would nurture and protect whites like a hothouse flower!

Columbus Day Protest

Above: On Columbus Day, students from Central Park East I and II schools joined the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in Zuccotti Park instead of celebrating at the Columbus Day Parade.

America, however, is at a crossroads. Whites, rather than a hothouse flower, are actually an endangered species (or more correctly, a subspecies) in today’s world, with their numbers and percentage of population diminishing each year. Like many another endangered species, we stop reproducing when our nesting grounds are disturbed.

In America, this disruption occurred when public schools were racially integrated undemocratically, by court decree, beginning with the infamous Brown v. Topeka Board of Education Supreme Court decision in 1954. Rather than throw their children into the veritable black hole of Calcutta that many public schools have become due to Brown and its progeny, many whites simply limited the number of children they had to the number of children they could afford to send to private school. Don’t ever imagine that this result was a coincidence.

That’s why we here at TPC [The Political Cesspool] constantly remind our audience that “liberalism is the modern face of evil,” and this includes every aspect and project of modern liberalism – including the supposedly sacrosanct Civil Rights Movement.

Today, more than ever, we all need to ponder the significance of Columbus and Columbus Day, and impress our friends, neighbors, and children of its importance. Columbus Day truly should rank as one of the most important and celebrated holidays of the year. Men like Columbus didn’t endure sufferings, privations, danger and even death so we could, like Esau, trade our inheritance for a mess of liberal, multicultural pottage.

We invite everyone in our audience to make Columbus Day the true occasion for celebration and remembrance that it is!

(James Edwards is the host of The Political Cesspool and a Director of the American Third Position political party.)

[Editor’s Note: I had a choice of going to Wall Street to photograph the “Occupy Wall Street” media circus or attend the civil Columbus Day Parade on Fifth Avenue. I chose the Columbus Day Parade, a day of European American celebration and heritage. I am including a gallery of photos of the parade. Enjoy!]

Bertram Thanks His Supporters and Contributors…

Harry Bertram thanks his supporters and contributors during his campaign for Governor of West Virginia.

“Thank you all who supported me during my run for Governor. Thank you to those who contributed funds during these hard economic times. Thank you to those who helped spread the word by passing out schedule cards, door hangers, and other resources. Many thanks also to those who attended parades in West Virginia with me and stood next to me as we gathered signatures to qualify.”

The two major parties dominated the election receiving 97 per cent of the vote. The remaining three candidates and two write-in candidates split the remaining 3 per cent. I received about 1 per cent of the vote behind Baber and Ingels.

An A3P member pointed out that

This was the first gubernatorial election that voters were fortunate to mark a ballot for a candidate standing under the American Third Position party. Jean-Marie Le Pen of France’s National Front in his first electoral run received under 1 per cent during the French presidential election. 28 years later Le Pen sent shock waves throughout the European political establishment finishing second in the presidential contest. Today, his daughter Marine Le Pen, is leading in an array of polls for the French presidency.

The struggle continues, but the future looks bright!

Myself and the American Third Position are looking forward to continue our fight as a party for white Americans and all Americans. Join A3P today for the win!

W.Va. Election Results Dominated by A Republican and A Democrat

Incumbent Earl Ray Tomblin (D) won the special election and is the new Governor of West Virginia. Tomblin will replace Joe Manchin, who is now a U.S. senator for the Mountain State. Robert C. Byrd, a Democratic senator who died last year and whose seat Mr. Manchin now occupies, was the state’s longest-serving public official.

West VirginiaDemocrat Earl Ray Tomblin and Republican Bill Maloney were the two front runners in the race. There were also three write-in candidates. On the ballot is Tiltonsville native Harry Bertram, whose television ad is stired up some controversy with people claiming he focuses on the interests of white Americans.

The Democrat and Republican candidates received 97% of the total votes. The remaining 3% was divided among the American Third Position, the Mountain Party, and the Independent candidate.

Harry Bertram received 1% as did Independent Marly Ingels. Bertram received more votes than Ingels in several counties — those counties where there was media coverage and ads by Bertram.

The American Third Position is pleased with Harry Bertram’s results. The results would improve with funding and media time.

Harry Bertram performed well with a miniscule budget and staff! An ad on a small TV station did raise some eyebrows.

State results by county can be viewed online at the West Virginia Vote By County.

This term is only for one year. The A3P and Harry Bertram will run in 2012, the next W.Va. Governor’s election!

W.Va. Gov. Campaign Ad By Harry Bertram Stirs Controversy

According to Channel 9 news:


Independent candidate for W.Va. Governor Harry Bertram has released a campaign ad that focuses on discrimination of White Americans.

The American Third Position Party candidate said he has a list of stances on different issues.

“It’s basically a conservative American first party and it means putting the interest of Americans first as far as trade agreements and anything else,” said Bertram.

But in his ad he called himself the “voice for white American issues,” so NEWS9 asked him about that stance.

“We’re against affirmative action and against illegal aliens coming into this country and they’re displacing white workers and eventually the white population,” said Bertram.

Still he followed up, adding that he wanted to do right by all American people.

Voters in West Virginia said that is not what they took away from the ad.

“In my opinion I see him putting his race first,” said Keith Wesley.

Wesley added, “I can’t believe that, this day and age it’s running like that.”

Others said Bertram’s view did not make sense.

“I don’t think that in West Virginia especially, illegal immigrants are at the top of our priority list on issues,” said Jamie Braunlich.

Bertram is from Tiltonsville, Oh and according to his website, he is a self described working-class conservative.

He said he wanted to reach out to those in the northern panhandle.

But NEWS9 questioned whether he thought he would lose votes with his approach.

“Well it will generate interest but, then again I didn’t expect to get their support anyway, those people that are other than the white heritage,” said Bertram.

“Oh to me he is bringing it back years. We’re trying to go forward and to me he is going backwards,” said Wesley.

The ad will air Tuesday on WTOV9. Although it is controversial, it falls under a federal statute and WTOV9 can not deny the paid advertisement snce he is a legally qualified candidate and his opponents ads have already aired on WTOV9.

However, WTOV did not point out that 95% of African-Americans voted for Obama because of his skin color.

We have the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), but heaven forbid a party or “Caucus” advocating for those interests and issues that affect White Americans!

For example the CHCI website states, “The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI) is one of the leading Hispanic non-profit and non-partisan 501(c) (3) organizations in the country. CHCI was established in 1978 to help increase opportunities for Hispanics to participate in and contribute to the American policy making process.”

Viewers can see the video on the WTOV website.

A3P Party Candidate Bertram Discusses Bid for Governor

By Suzanne Higgins | Fifty-one-year-old Harry Bertram, a railroad engineer from Morgantown, has been involved in politics for 30 years, working on the campaigns of George Wallace, Ronald Reagan, Pat Buchanan and others.

[audio:|titles=Bertram – WV Public Radio – 0930]

“Bill Maloney is not the only conservative on the ballot. I am, but you get a bonus with me because I go beyond what the normal conservative would talk about,” said Bertram.

Bertram is state chairman of the American Third Position Party, which formed last year.

“We are basically a conservative America-first nationalist political party – it’s as simple as that.”

The party’s website says the American Third Position Party believes government policy discriminates against white Americans and that white Americans need their own political party to fight this discrimination.

“West Virginia is of course, the majority is White Europeans,” said Bertram. “But you see it in the form of affirmative action, and with the influx of illegal aliens.”

“They come in and do their work and commit crimes like small petit theft, stealing, breaking into cars, get drunk or cause a fight, stabbings, shootings, then of course they move on,” said Bertram. “It’s kind of standard practice, but everyone turns a blind eye.”

While the party has been called white supremacist, Bertram says that’s totally inaccurate.

Check“White supremacist is always used by left-wing liberal media types who tend to paint a broad brush on people and try to demonize them,” he said. “There’s nobody that I know that’s a white supremacist because that’s like a slave owner, someone who wants to dominate over another person or people.

“What we say, we are white nationalists which means we love our race and are willing to do something to preserve it, nationalist means putting America first.

“When you start to destroy someone’s culture and identity, bringing in a different group of people who aren’t the same background, that’s sort of committing genocide against that group. And we’re not going to stand for it without speaking out against it,” said Bertram.

Bertram says West Virginia needs to concentrate on attracting jobs by addressing its business tax code.

“The problem that’s been in West Virginia for years and years, basically because it’s been controlled by liberal democrats, is they’re burdened with too many taxes, too many regulations.”

Bertram supports developing the Marcellus Shale drilling industry, calling it a win-win for drillers, workers, landowners and consumers.

“And of course we have to have inspectors and stuff to make sure that the laws are being followed and nobody is doing what they shouldn’t be doing; we are very environmentally conscience.”

Bertram also believes education reform is needed.

“What I would say to the board of education is we got to get back to reading, writing and arithmetic, cut out all the liberal indoctrination and let’s get back to A,B,C, and D,” said Bertram.

Bertram believes there are plenty of disgruntled voters in West Virginia and he’s asking for their vote.

“Vote for Harry Bertram because there’s not a better way to send the system a message than to vote for me and put America first.”
