Editorial Reviews

Review

“A riveting journey through the tangled web of ACORN … This is one of the most comprehensive compilations of evidence against ACORN available.” –Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa)

“A well-researched, irresistibly written book that every American should read. The criminal enterprise called ‘ACORN’ is the largest, most elusive, and most dangerous radical organization in America. If you are wondering about the operations and influence of a vast left-wing conspiracy, this is it, with tentacles that reach right into the heart of the Obama White House.” – David Horowitz, author of New York Times bestseller The Shadow Party

“I dare anyone to defend ACORN, and its radicals, after reading this book.” – Hannah Giles, Investigative Journalist

“It’s dynamite with a short fuse.” – G. Gordon Liddy, Nationally Syndicated Talk Show Host

“Through his careful research, Matthew Vadum shined a light that exposed ACORN’s corruption. For months I fought to cut off the flow of tax dollars to ACORN. In Subversion Inc. Vadum warns that despite the defunding of ACORN, the group has only feigned death.” – Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota)

About the Author

“Michelle Malkin hailed Subversion Inc. author Matthew Vadum in her bestselling expose of the Obama administration, Culture of Corruption, for having “the foresight and insight to report on the [ACORN] story when nobody else would.” Glenn Beck said he finally “got it” when Vadum appeared on his TV show to talk about ACORN and helped him draw one of his famous tree diagrams. The Washington Post recognized Vadum as an opinion maker because he “writes some of the harder edged and more influential briefings” in the conservative movement.

An award-winning investigative journalist with a lively, witty writing style, Matthew Vadum is a senior editor at Capital Research Center, a conservative think tank in Washington, D.C. Vadum’s work has been cited by Fox News, WND.com, Weekly Standard, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Christian Science Monitor and many other media outlets.”

Before commenting on the contents of Subversion, I need to say that this book is immensely readable. For a book containing so many documented facts, some people might think that a book like this would be somewhat dry. It is not. You will cut through the first hundred pages faster than Obama and ACORN have been cutting through our country with their socialist agendas. Matthew Vadum said in his book, he could have written 2,000 pages, but chose to make it a reasonable length for readability. I could make this review almost as long as his finished product, but I will also make it a reasonable length for readability.

Are you a straight white conservative Christian or Jewish male American citizen who believes America is the greatest country in the history of the world? Do you value the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence? Do you believe in capitalism, free market economy, equal opportunity (but NOT equal outcome), freedom, lower taxes, smaller government, making it on your own, personal privacy, giving to charities of your OWN choice and not favoring one group of people over another?
Then ACORN does NOT like you.

Do you believe in socialism, government intrusion into every aspect of your life, affirmative action, quotas, set-asides and special rights for every government approved and designated victims groups? Do you believe that indoctrination of your children and grandchildren by academia at every level, left-wing media and entertainment to get them to believe that everything which used to be normal is now abnormal and everything which used to be abnormal is now normal?

Matthew Vadum has done a superb job of presenting the real ACORN. With the expose of some ACORN offices by James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles, ACORN became a household name. And while that story caused a temporary crisis for the group, they have reorganized under different names and have gone right back to business. Vadum traces the groups radical origins and reveals in a way no other researcher has, ACORN's extensive tentacles within our political infrastructure. They have been undermining our nation on many fronts for decades: agitating for destructive minimum wage laws and ever-increasing welfare programs, using voting laws developed by fellow radicals to engage in widespread vote fraud, and most famously, advocating housing policies that ultimately caused the subprime mortgage crisis. ACORN has been at the forefront of most radical left agitation, including the Occupy protests and illegal alien amnesty advocacy. Researchers, columnists and pundits have exposed an arm of the octopus here and there, but Vadum drags out the whole beast. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding how we moved from a stable, wealthy Constitutional Republic to our present point, tottering on the edge of collapse. ACORN was in the middle of it.

I don't know Matt Vadum personally but was pleasantly surprised by how superb this book was. I purchased it thinking it was about the left in general--after all it's about subversion!--but was somewhat disappointed to see it addressed ACORN alone. Well, I'm a little ACORNed out at this point, but Vadum dissects the left on aggregate throughout. Overall, his discussion is very educational and thorough. It's a combination of great analysis and great reporting. I make videos on youtube and I wanted to educate concerning Saul Alinsky along with the Cloward-Piven Strategy so I will be making use today of the material Vadum offers in chapters 4 and 5 as a text from which to instruct. This author summarizes Rules for Radicals and the "Weight of the Poor" approach to overwhelming the government with welfare payments better than just about anything I've read before. It's a succinct and persuasive account. I often come up with lists of things that I wish to cleave off of the federocracy, and that list is lengthy, but the 80 million in Housing and Urban Development grants that ACORN has fleeced off of the federal government suggests that HUD should be at the top of any budget cuts in the future. Great stuff, great read!

This book is very well written, and very informative. If you can get through the wordiness, you will come to understand what is presently happening in the USA, and how this all came about. Scary that things have come to this point. This book helps to make sense of who is who, and how they got to where they are, and where they/we are headed.

ACORN has not disappeared. The national organization's formal dissolution via bankruptcy has simply compelled it to be split into smaller local groups with differing names. It is also still committed to pushing socialism down the throats of unwilling Americans. The writings of Saul Alinsky guide the organization's operational policies. Outright lying and criminal activity are second nature to ACORN's leadership. Matthew Vadum provides countless well documented examples of such deceitful behavior. "ACORN is a nonprofit version of Enron, the infamous failed energy company that imploded under the pressure of hopelessly confusing, misleading, and illegal accounting practices," adds the author. Barack Obama has a close relationship with these ideological thugs. We can take it for granted the president will continue helping them behind the scenes. ACORN has fraudulently helped Democrats win a number of elections. It is existentially hostile towards Republicans and constitutional government. ACORN advocates soft totalitarianism. Vadum's book must be read by everybody who lives in an area directly threatened by ACORN. Your vote is in serious jeopardy. The same holds true for your local economy. Pay attention immediately---or you may live to regret it.
