I have no idea what "Freedom Fest 2010" is supposed to be, but it is sponsored by the ACLJ and being headlined by Sarah Palin. Someone just gave Cindy Jacobs $15,000 to continue her prophetic intercession. Really? It looks like Samuel Rodriquez has joined up with Harry Jackson and Niger Innis for their bogus Affordable Power Alliance. The House's Office of Congressional Ethics says there is no "probable cause to believe the alleged violation occurred" by members of Congress getting cheap rent at The Family's house on C Street...

Back in the summer of 2008, we produced a series of posts about an effort called "Stop the War on the Poor" that was led by Harry Jackson and Niger Innis, claiming to be a campaign to claim that "extreme environmentalists" who oppose increased domestic oil drilling are enemies of the poor. In essence, the group's message was that high energy prices disproportionately impact the poor and that domestic oil drilling was solution to keeping energy prices low. Not surprisingly, the effort was heavily supported by pro-drilling and other energy business interests. Now... MORE >

Today's best reporting on the Right from around the web:Was Rick Santelli's televised rant part of some right-wing astroturf plot?Niger Innis takes his bogus "stop the war on the poor" campaign to CPAC where, Media Matters reports, he declared that today's environmentalists are the same as racists who desire to keep minorities from getting an equal opportunity.Mother Jones notes that Mitt Romney wowed the CPAC audience: ""[T]he crowd loved him. It felt a little like a campaign rally. If Romney runs for president in 2012, this will be his base." It... MORE >

Last year we wrote a series of posts about the pro-drilling Americans for American Energy's bogus grassroots "Stop the War on the Poor" campaign being fronted by Niger Innis and Harry Jackson.Over the last six months, we haven't seen anything about them and assumed that they had disbanded ... but we were wrong. Apparently, they are still hard at work and are now targeting Robert Redford for hating the poor:Hollywood's Sundance Kid is hurting poor people.So say some East Coast ministers and conservative activists, who took to the streets in front of a downtown Salt Lake City...

Last week, we reported on a “War on the Poor” rally, led by Niger Innis of the Congress of Racial Equality, Bishop Harry Jackson of the High Impact Leadership Coalition, and Americans for American Energy, in which environmentalists who oppose increased domestic drilling were accused of being “environmental racists, environmental terrorists.” Together, Americans for American Energy, CORE, and Jackson produced the appearance of a “grassroots” campaign. From a new press release promising more name-calling: The national... MORE >

A gathering led by Niger Innis of the Congress of Racial Equality, Bishop Harry Jackson of the High Impact Leadership Coalition, and the new group Americans for American Energy held a press conference yesterday demanding increased “American Energy” production. Their contentions were twofold: that high energy costs disproportionately harm low-income families, and that increased domestic oil drilling would solve the problem. Standing in the way: the “elitist Volvo-driving” environmentalists. Watch: Although CORE was once a prominent... MORE >
