Can You Trust the Union Label?

By Bridgette

Does Your Dream for America Include

Socialism, Marxism, Communism, or Islam?

"American Dream" Sponsors

That’s What These Organizations Want.. That is Their End Game!

Above are only a few of the organizations that believe that our country needs to be transformed into their version of the American Dream.  Their version wants you and your family to live like those in other socialistic countries.  They want our U.S.A. to emulate countries like Cuba, Venezuela, Russia, or even China.   They want everyone to share everything equally whether you have worked for the benefits or sat on your bum.

The Progressives/Democrats  have been hijacked by  radical Leftist lunatics who are ready to revolt like they are doing in the Middle East.  They are calling out for an Egyptian type  revolution in the U.S. so they can reign supreme over you and your family.  They have called for a General Strike in the U.S. to further their goals.

They want your soul, land, money, and wealth.  They do not want you to be religious.  They want to tear down the fabric of our society, the family.  They believe in eugenics or population control, hence their support of abortions and Obamacare.   They want to have the final word in determining who is worthy to live and who should die.   They are willing to lie, steal, and perpetrate their vision through any corrupt or intimidation method possible.   They want you to accept the abnormal as normal.  They purposely are changing facts and history to fit their preconceived faulty images and are willing to manipulate facts to that end.   They are miscreants and thugs,  and they are ruthless.   They represent the lowest of the low, the dregs of society, and  the outcasts.  They will use any means available to make members tow their line..the line that leads to you and our destruction.  They are morally deficient, and live by street values, not by  societal mores and traditions.

You’ve read their propaganda that the Tea Party people are extremists and are demonizing the country, and that is the story that the Leftist Democrats  want people to believe.  When in reality it is the Left that has warped views and who are stirring up trouble by agitating people’s emotions by  misrepresenting issues . We have seen them operate in Arizona and Wisconsin.   Information is twisted and interspersed with racist overtones and incomplete and total propaganda aided by a complicit left leaning MSM.

In opposition, the Tea Party people support everything that is  exceptional and marvelous in the U.S.A.  They do not want to overthrow our government and put in a different brand of government like the Left wants to do.    Tea partiers  are holding tight to our American traditions, values, and morals against the unjust, undemocratic and anti-American leftists  who are  pulling the wool over the eyes of their members.

Check out the values of any of the organizations above and a pattern will emerge.   The pattern is one that mirrors third world countries.  We can only hope that you will see that the party that you think represents you and former Democrats no longer does.  Their agenda may not be your agenda anymore.

If you are in a Union now, do you know what your hard-earned dollars are really supporting?  What has happened to your forced membership dues?  Where is all your money going and what are you unknowingly supporting? Who is holding the union bosses accountable? Are you watching the leaders who are espousing the philosophy that capitalism must be destroyed?  Is that where you are?

Our “American Dream” does not involve transforming our U.S.A.  Our American Dream allows every person to reach their individual potential.  You can  make as much money as you want,  spend it how you want, and participate in  life without being told how it must be done.  Our dream states that America and its people are exceptional!

Watching the unions operating in Wisconsin the last few weeks has given Americans a front row seat to how the unions and the radical left operates. It is way past time for companies to hold the unions and their supporting organizations’ feet to the fire.  A recent article  shows one company that is taking  on the SEIU.  Their lawsuit documents some of the tactics that are used against those who oppose them.     What kind of people operate like this?    Only sick, immoral people would do things like we are seeing  and are expressed in the lawsuit below.

Services Leader Seeks to End SEIU’s Campaign of Extortion

GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 17, 2011

Sodexo USA today filed a civil lawsuit against the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and other defendants under the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, to stop the illegal campaign of extortion that the SEIU has been waging in the U.S. for over a year.

“This is about protecting the Company’s business and the rights of our employees to vote freely about union representation,” said Robert Stern, Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Sodexo USA.

“We work constructively with unions every day but the SEIU has crossed the line by breaking the law. We will not tolerate the SEIU’s tactics any longer. Their campaign jeopardizes our Company and our employees’ jobs, and ultimately would rob our employees of their right to vote.”

Sodexo USA has filed the lawsuit seeking to halt the SEIU’s extortionate threats and barrage of unlawful tactics. The complaint alleges acts of SEIU blackmail, vandalism, trespass, harassment, and lobbying law violations designed to steer business away from Sodexo USA and harm the company.

The complaint alleges that the SEIU, in face to face meetings, threatened Sodexo USA’s executives that it would harm Sodexo USA’s business unless they gave in to the union, and then carried out its threats through egregious behavior, including:

* Throwing plastic  roaches onto food being served by Sodexo USA at a high-profile event;

* Scaring hospital patients by insinuating that Sodexo USA food contained bugs, rat droppings, mold and flies;

* Lying to interfere with Sodexo USA business and sneaking into elementary schools to avoid security;

* Lobbying laws to steer business away from Sodexo USA, even at the risk of costing Sodexo USA employees their jobs; and

* Harassing Sodexo USA employees by threatening to accuse them of wrongdoing.

The complaint, filed in federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia, seeks an injunction against the SEIU and its locals and executives, as well as monetary damages to be determined by the court.

#######

May Sodexo lead the charge against unions, organizations, and people who are unwilling to live according to the laws of our country and who live without morals or common decency.    Interference in the livelihoods of businesses and employees who oppose union membership must not be tolerated.  People have choices and thinking people don’t need to be paid for their support.    The majority  of people in this country are able to tell the difference between right and wrong.  It is time for the majority to silence and charge those who are unable to accept the rule of law.  Moral people do not accept lying, cheating, intimidation,  threats or other such immoral behavior  as a way of life.   People without principles should be exposed as such.

We are a diverse nation, but we do not have to be exposed to  and run by the perverse.

  1. I think your analysis here is spot on, Bridgette. What concerns me is this union activity in the states, with organized union thugs pulling off astroturfed “protests” against Republican governments. It reminds me too much of the organized, astroturfed revolts in Middle Eastern countries. I just wrote about the new standard that the UN is using to justify their action against Libya. Here’s part of what I said:

    Now the UN has a new criterion: That the UN will act to protect civilians. Except these aren’t civilians. They’re armed rebels. So is the new standard that the UN will authorize attacks on behalf of rebels in any country where an uprising takes place, so long as the government defends itself?

    Does that mean that the UN will attack within the US if/when Barry’s unions try to take over governments in our several states, if/when any of the state governors try to defend their governments? And then the UN will help Barry institute a new Constitution and a new government that better suits the UN?

    This is a scary slippery slope, and what are the Republicans doing? Rangel, I hate to say, is right. But what’s his game, I wonder?

    Are even the Democrats in Congress finally realizing that this POTUS ignores them and their role under the Constitution? That he ignores the fact that he is only their equal among three entities? That he’s not the RULER of this country and is the Commander in Chief who ANSWERS TO CONGRESS WHEN THEY AUTHORIZE HIM TO ACT?

    IF those speaking about impeachment are serious, Democrat or Republican, more power to them. It’s far past time for patriots in Congress to rise up and defend their turf. We the People obviously have no “standing” to do so.

    I don’t believe in coincidences any more, not since the Obamanation came to pass. I fear what the next two years have in store for us, if Wisconsin is the first example of Obama organized, astroturfed rebellion against a democratically elected, but Republican led, state government. Is civil war their end game? One that will be decided by the UN? Just imagine how much damage can be done if they have four more years beyond 2012 to plot this coup.

  2. http://redwhitebluenews.com/?p=16246

    This article has a great firsthand analysis of how the unions operated in Ohio, using Alinsky tactics:

    “Columbus – Thursday, February 17, 2011

    First of all, the unions knew about Senate Bill 5 before any of us had even heard of it. The result was that they had 800 members in the Senate gallery during the first day of hearings, literally booing at the testimony and trying to intimidate senators, while we had no representation. This was a tactical error by our representatives which caused them to lose the moral high ground in the first two hours of the fight. The union message dominated the local news, and pictures of hundreds of union members in yellow shirts were on the front page of every newspaper and on every TV. Immediately, the senators and the governor were on the defensive and their logical message of fiscal responsibility was being drowned out by emotional messages of citizens turning their backs on “police and firefighters who face gunfire and run into burning buildings” and “going to war against ‘middle class workers’.” These are examples of standard Akinsky tactics. First create a powerful image by having them all wear the same colored shirts, use force to interrupt the hearings by booing the presenters, go door-to-door in the Senate to remind Senators that you have the resources to help or hurt them in the future, then come out with an emotional message that divides your opponents by class or other categories. The message to our Republican leaders: the left destroyed you on day one.”

  3. More from that story, after the Tea Party mounted a response:
    Our members went to the door to see if they could go into the State House, but were told by security that they were not allowed in because there was no room. We … had been told several days before that they were moving the hearings to a bigger room because they were expecting a big crowd. … We stayed outside. At about 9:00 AM, there was still no sign of any union members. … Then, right on cue, we saw a line of at least several hundred union members, mostly police and fire, walking in line, four across like an army, approaching from the northwest corner of the grounds right towards us and the steps of the State House. You could clearly tell that this was staged to try and intimidate us. We stood there watching as they drew closer, wondering what would happen when they reached the steps. None of them were wearing colored shirts, they were wearing what looked like uniforms.
    To our amazement, when they got to the steps, the doors to the State House opened up and they walked right between us, in formation, and walked right inside – after we had been standing outside for at least an hour waiting to get inside. After we had been told we could not go inside. … We were personally introduced to the first two Saul Alinsky tactics. You see, since the police and firefighter unions were protesting Senate Bill 5, there were lots of official-looking people walking around who were not officials. The people who had told our members that we could not go into the State House because there was no room were not officials at the State House at all. They were union members taking advantage of our lack of experience with their tactics. This was pure theater. The planted people at the door to make us think we could not go in, for the express purpose of exposing us to what they hoped would be an intimidating show of force when they used their little parade to March right through us.”

    • kidding me ?

      To our amazement, when they got to the steps, the doors to the State House opened up and they walked right between us, in formation, and walked right inside – after we had been standing outside for at least an hour waiting to get inside.

The planted people at the door to make us think we could not go in, for the express purpose of exposing us to what they hoped would be an intimidating show of force when they used their little parade to March right through us…..

  4. And more: “Every union member appeared to be quoting from a script someone had written for them to memorize. Another Alinsky tactic, stay on message. As our free-thinking American members started to ask them questions and ask them to explain their positions, we quickly found that they had no idea what Senate Bill 5 was about or what they were talking about. They had no logic, just anger, and wrongful, ill-informed anger at that. Our group spent the next four hours talking to these union members and trying to get them to understand that we are out of money and if they don’t support some kind of change, many more of them are going to lose their jobs. The best part was when we talked to teachers and asked them what they were doing here during a school day, and they told us that the “Democratic Party” had paid their way. They were not kidding. Every union was being paid to be there.”

  5. If we remember, when ACORN was taken down in this country, and is more than likely reorganized under different names, they were going international. They were up and running in multiple countries and called Acorn International. Add ACORN International to the Unions in other countries and the agitators are up and running. It is no coincidence that multiple countries are involved in uprisings at the same time. “Workers of the World” unite! Andy Stern was in a video describing the revolution worldwide and well as was Rathke – who was going abroad to teach Alinsky tactics.

    The unions have joined hands with Muslims here and in other countries and so they are adding another ideology to the mix. The unions didn’t have a foothold in the US until Obama was elected. Yet without Obama having been elected we would have no idea how all the Leftist organizations are connected and what their end game is. Now they are being exposed and the country is saying, “No Way are we going that direction.” There are more of us then there are of them…we must get more publicity than they are getting.

    In reality, the union and leftists make up the minority in our country..it is about time that they become known as the fringe!

  6. There must be Tea Party members that belong to Unions or these organizations. They must forward the emails they receive from the unions to the tea parties so we know what they are up to. We are learning their tactics..and now know they are being rallied through email alerts. Unions are out front making their signs for them and giving them their talking points.

    Tea partiers don’t need talking points..they know why they are there! Plus they make their own signs! Thank God people rose up this last November to show that the Majority will make a difference.

    Notice how the media followed the left and their protests 24/7 in Wisconsin in comparison to when the tea partiers were protesting..no publicity and total degradation of the people. Compare the tea parties Civility to a total lack of any civility and decorum.

    The Left has to engineer or orchestrate their protests – if they didn’t pay their members, would anyone show up? If they weren’t forced to be there by their union bosses..would they protest? If the agitators weren’t bussed in to help agitate, would the people do it on their own?

  7. My gosh..they are in Michigan Again protesting in the Capitol. The Michigan Teacher’s union is considering a strike to protest the state budget. In Michigan if they do strike, they can be fired. This is the second time the agitators have gone to the Capitol and taken it over. Last week 14 were arrested. Will they destroy the Michigan Capitol like they did in Wisconsin?

  8. The thing is, just as in the Middle East, the people making the biggest splash get the attention. And then the outsized attention, aided and abetted by the lamestream media, makes it seem as if these people speak for the majority of the people, when they do not.

    Do those murderous rebels in Libya speak for the mass of Libyans? I bet not. As George Will said, we don’t even know WHO they are and we’re helping them to create a power vacuum in Libya. To what end?

    And in Wisconsin and Michigan, Ohio and Indiana, it doesn’t matter who the people are who are protesting: We know they’re astroturfed, paid thugs. But the media don’t report it that way. So they make it SEEM as if the majority of workers are on the side of these protesters and that the majority of the people in those states are, too. It’s all good for Barry because it energizes his base, gets those donations flowing, and makes the Republicans look (justifiably so) like idiots, always playing catch up.

    These rank and file union employees need to take a long hard look at their leadership. At what they’re doing with their extorted union dues. Jesse Watters, at Fox News, proved that the students who were protesting in Wisconsin had NO CLUE what they were protesting about.

    Since the unions have bottomless sums of money, of course they can PAY people to show up and protest against anything, probably even a ham sandwich. The lamestream media won’t report the truth–that these are paid thugs, who don’t even know what they’re supposed to be for or against.

    We need to somehow get the word out to the people who are victimized by these unions on a daily basis. Unions, imho, have always been just a legalized protection racket. You pay us and we’ll protect you. Like Don Corleone in da neighborhood. Pay to play OR we’ll hurt you. Yes, union workers get better pay and benefits, but usually on the backs of the non-unionized workers, in the same companies, who get worse benefits and lower wages. Mostly women, I might add, especially in manufacturing industries. A company has to take from somewhere in order to give to someone else. The execs aren’t about to take the cushy benefits out of their own salaries, so they cut elsewhere. In the auto business, they cut in quality, until the Japanese gave them a run for their money. This is why the auto industry is in trouble and so are those pension funds and the employees who once had wonderful benefits. But the union folks figure, I got mine, so what do I care if you don’t have the same? They like to make the CEOs and the big corporations look greedy, when that word could also apply to people like these teachers in Wisconsin who seem NOT TO CARE if 1500 OTHER public employees will lose their jobs, just so long as they keep their benefits and higher salaries.

  9. Proof of what I said about the impression that the lamestream media gives, with their complicit stories about what’s going on in the states: http://gatewaypundit.rightnetwork.com/2011/03/liberal-media-stunned-analysis-shows-emails-to-governor-walker-favored-his-bill/

    “The liberal media wouldn’t report on the violent protesters, the hateful signs or the bomb plots. What they did do was sue Governor Scott Walker for emails so that they could prove that voters were with them and the protesters and against Scott Walker’s budget bill. They were wrong. 62% of the emails sent to Governor Walker supported his budget bill. Only 32% opposed it.”

  10. Megan Kelly is discussing the Lawsuit I quoted in the article in Kelly’s Court today! So now SEIU will be getting the exposure on their antics..and they aren’t going to like it.

    Update: Megan didn’t cover it..her time was interrupted by Obama’s speech in Chile..of course, he had to tell those who were listening that he was president of the U.S. That is so tiring, he has to tell everyone that he is CIC or pres. Another lame speech in the little I heard.

    Hopefully, she will cover it tomorrow..or someone else on FOX will today.

    • Good. I have my disagreements with Megyn, when she attacks the “birthers”, but otherwise she’s a pit bull. Expose the thugs. That’s all we want.

  11. This is a gem – Unions are out of control with this kind of propaganda!

    Wis. Teacher Commits Suicide…Unions Blame Gov. Scott Walker

    March 19, 2011 at 6:51pm

    A middle-aged teacher with a history of depression committed suicide earlier this month, and the Wisconsin unionistas are blaming their boogeyman governor, Scott Walker, for her death: Jeri-Lynn Betts, an early childhood teacher in the Watertown, Wisconsin, school district, died on March 8 of an apparent suicide.

    A colleague says she was “very distraught” over Gov. Scott Walker’s attacks on public sector workers and public education. … In the days after Betts’s death, two members of the school district contacted The Progressive about her death, calling it a suicide and saying it was connected, at least in part, to the policies that Walker has proposed. . “She was definitely very distraught about it,” said one of her co-workers, who requested anonymity. “She was feeling a lot of stress about the legislation that was going through.” “She was concerned about the cuts teachers would have to take,” said another, who also requested anonymity. This co-worker added that Betts’s colleagues acknowledged her anguish about the governor’s policies in their discussions after her death.

    • An old fried told me about 3 years ago about the women from Watertown remember ?
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watertown,_Wisconsin

      • Watertown is a city in Dodge and Jefferson counties in the U.S. state of Wisconsin. Most of the city’s population is in Jefferson County. Division Street, several blocks north of downtown, marks the county line. The population of Watertown was 21,598 at the 2000 census. Its 2007 estimated population was 23,301.[2]

        Watertown is the largest city in the Watertown-Fort Atkinson micropolitan area, which also includes Johnson Creek and Jefferson. The 2005 estimated population of the micropolitan area was 79,328. Watertown’s estimated population in 2008 was 23,165.

        OriginWatertown was first settled by Timothy Johnson, who built a cabin on the west side of the Rock River in 1836.

        What made that area famous ?
        Pabst Blue Ribbon beer ?

    • Millions are similarly out of jobs on account of Barry’s policies, so will they hold him to this same standard?

  13. Is SEIU Working With Hamas And FARC?
    January 27, 2011 Snips

    Prominent current and former members of SEIU local 73 are being investigated for their potential ties to the Hamas and FARC terrorist groups Late last year, their homes were raided by the FBI, and they were subpoenaed to appear in front of a grand jury for questioning.

    The interesting thing about these SEIU folks is that they also belong to a violently radical group called the Freedom Road Socialist Organization. The Freedom Road Socialist Organization (FRSO) is a revolutionary socialist and Marxist-Leninist organization in the United States.

    This is the same group who, along with the other subjects of the FBI investigation, takes credit for staging the 2008 RNC protest-riots.

    Shockingly, SEIU leadership is supporting their accused members, and the chosen strategy of not cooperating with law enforcement.

    Let that sink in for a minute. SEIU members are being investigated for potential ties to terrorists, and SEIU leadership is supporting non-cooperation with law enforcement. Can we question their patriotism yet??

    The bottom line is that in addition to demanding the right to riot on the streets of America, the Progressive movement in this country (including SEIU) wants the right to organize “non-violent” actions with Hamas and FARC.

    Pay close attention to the 2 minute mark in the video below. The Lawyers Guild protester lets the cat out of the bag when he talks about Global Exchange being threatened by all of this.
    Global Exchange is one of the groups that helped organized the violent Hamas flotilla.

    So here you have SEIU members participating in violent revolutionary causes, and SEIU leadership defending them.

    This raises a lot of questions about the extent of coordination between the American Progressive movement and global terrorist organizations. We can think of at least two people who are strongly associated with this exact SEIU local 73, people who might be able to shed some light on the actions of its members: Andy Stern and Obama

  14. Great News: ACORN Back in Business in NYC
    New name, same old thuggery, and supported by the unions. What a surprise!

    Monday, January 24, 2011

    Watch out! ACORN is back — in all but its name.

    Backed by hundreds of thousands of dollars in union donations, New York Communities for Change — a rebranded version of the controversial organization that closed up shop amid several scandals — is acting again as labor’s attack dog on controversial issues. NYCC took over ACORN’s office on Nevins Street in Brooklyn, shares some of the same board members and uses its membership lists and other resources.

  16. Obama In 2007: As A President I’ll Join Union Picket Lines

  17. Public unions force taxpayers to fund Democrats
    By: Michael Barone 02/22/11 9:05 PM

    Everyone has priorities. During the past week Barack Obama has found no time to condemn the attacks that Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi has launched on the Libyan people.

    But he did find time to be interviewed by a Wisconsin television station and weigh in on the dispute between Republican Gov. Scott Walker and the state’s public employee unions. Walker was staging “an assault on unions,” he said, and added that “public employee unions make enormous contributions to our states and our citizens.”

    Enormous contributions, yes — to the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign. Unions, most of whose members are public employees, gave Democrats some $400 million in the 2008 election cycle. The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, the biggest public employee union, gave Democrats $90 million in the 2010 cycle.

    Follow the money, Washington reporters like to say. The money in this case comes from taxpayers, present and future, who are the source of every penny of dues paid to public employee unions, who in turn spend much of that money on politics, almost all of it for Democrats. In effect, public employee unions are a mechanism by which every taxpayer is forced to fund the Democratic Party

    http://washingtonexaminer.com/politics/2011/02/public-unions-force-taxpayers-fund-democrats#ixzz1HHYQXenC

    • Wow. I never thought about that. But it’s true. They are paid with our tax dollars, so it follows that they pay their union dues with money that comes from our tax dollars. And so We the People, against our will, are funding entities that nearly 100% support the Democratic Party. Sounds unconstitutional, to me, put that way. Doesn’t it?

      • Something I did not know before – JFK gave them that power when he signed executive order 10988 !!

        “In 1962, JFK signed executive order 10988 allowing the unionization of the federal work force. This changed everything in the American political system. Kennedy’s order swung open the door for the inexorable rise of a unionized public work force in many states and cities.

        This in turn led to the fantastic growth in membership of the public employee unions—The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) and the teachers’ National Education Association. ”

        Executive Order 10988

        • Figures. But the federal work force, they say, doesn’t have collective bargaining rights. Is that true?

          • Yes that is true Miri, an employee working for the Federal Goverment doe’s not have collective bargaining right’s.

            A Federal employee can not go out on strike, nor can they negotiate pay and health or pension benefits, ect, ect.

          • Exceptions I believe are Air traffic controllers and U.S. Postal workers, they do have some bargaining rights.

  19. Chicago SEIU Local Leaders Probed for Terror Links
    Submitted by Carl Horowitz on Tue, 02/15/2011 – 18:20

    It’s not every day that an American labor union gets investigated for possible ties to two of the world’s most lethal terrorist organizations. But Chicago’s Service Employees International Union Local 73 isn’t an everyday union. Last September 24, FBI agents raided residences in Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan of more than a dozen radical activists in an effort to connect them to the Hamas (Gaza and the West Bank) and FARC (Colombia) guerrilla movements. Two of the occupants were SEIU Local 73 chief steward and executive board member Joe Iosbaker and former local board member-steward Tom Burke. Neither they nor anyone else has been arrested.

    But as the case unfolds, questions have arisen over the extent of involvement, if any, by the Chicago-based radical network that nurtured President Obama’s political ambitions from the Nineties onward.

    http://www.nlpc.org/stories/2011/02/15/chicago-seiu-local-leaders-probed-terror-links

    • The political network surrounding Service Employees Local 73 also has disturbing linkages to political power at the highest levels. While Hatem Abudayyeh currently heads the AAAN, [Arab American Action Network] its co-founders are Rashid Khalidi, a Columbia University professor of Arab Studies and former PLO operative, and his wife, Columbia University Public Affairs Assistant Dean Mona Khalidi.

      In 1994, AAAN, not quite up and running, received a $40,000 seed grant from the Woods Fund of Chicago, a private nonprofit radical philanthropy which went into operation that year and whose charter executive board included future President Barack Obama. In 1999, unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers became a board member.

      During 2001-02, the Woods Fund bankrolled AAAN with two grants totaling $75,000. In 2003, Obama, a close friend of Mr. Khalidi (the latter has admitted to raising funds for Obama’s unsuccessful 2000 run for Congress), toasted Khalidi at his going-away party. The Los Angeles Times reportedly had in its possession during the 2008 campaign a videotape of the event, but refused to release its contents.

      Rashid Khalidi, significantly, also is a board member of Movement for a Democratic Society whose board members over the years have included Weather Underground terrorist Bernardine Dohrn, and former SDS leaders Tom Hayden, Alan Haber and Carl Davidson. He also sits on the advisory board of the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, which joined forces with Code Pink, United for Peace and Justice and other groups to support the Gaza Flotilla. As he has termed Israel a “racist” state, that makes sense.

      • Rashid Khalidi occupied offices disown the Hall from Obama in Chicago…..
        Those LA tapes showed not only the (purportedly anti semetic) comments of the guests at the going away party, but also the very young dance troop from Milwakee that were known for performing a dance routine depicting jihadists beheading infidels……( see Debbie Schussel’s account of when she went under cover and filmed the performance of that troop the year before)

  20. Special Report: How Labor Unions Embraced Antiwar Extremism
    Submitted by NLPC Staff on Fri, 09/01/2006

    In September 2006, NLPC published a Special Report titled Common Cause with America’s Enemies: How Labor Unions Embraced Antiwar Extremism. Authored by Dr. Carl Horowitz, the director of NLPC’s Organized Labor Accountability Project, the report details the close relationships between union leaders and anti-war activists. Click here or on image at right to download 28-page pdf of Special Report.

    According to Horowitz, “It’s no secret that much of the opposition to our military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan is anti-American, and not simply antiwar. Prominent self-styled ‘peace activists’ such as Cindy Sheehan, Leslie Cagan and Ramsey Clark rarely waste an opportunity to portray America as the number-one obstacle to world peace. What may be less known is the prominent role that many of the nation’s labor unions have had in promoting this view.”

    The report analyzes the alliance between union activists and Communist-allied organizations such as Code Pink, A.N.S.W.E.R., and United for Peace and Justice as the culmination of a process that began more than 30 years ago. Whereas organized labor, under the leadership of AFL-CIO President George Meany (1955-79) and Lane Kirkland (1979-95) promoted liberal anti-Communism, federation President John Sweeney has virtually ratified an embrace of anti-Americanism.

  21. Glenn Beck is posting a tape on the Blaze right now, that concerns a plan by SEIU and other “Americans” to crash JP Morgan Chase and the US economy in MAY. Stephen Lerner (sp?) on Huffington Post is on the tape. He’s involved in SEIU banking and finance “campaign”. He’s an activist. It’s a long tape. Excerpts will be on The Blaze. The tape is being sent to the bank itself and also to the Justice Dept., where it will probably be buried and they will plan how they will demonize Glenn as a racist for revealing this.

    • Caveat. I’m trying to transcribe what Glenn is saying but sometimes my comments are interspersed, so forgive me. I don’t mean to misquote Glenn by inserting my bloviating.

      Francis FOX PIVEN was at this meeting!!!! This is a tape of an “offshoot” meeting of 15 people.

      Lerner organized “Justice for Janitors” in NY. They brought people from all over the country and collected garbage to dump in intersections to shut down traffic, SEIU involved in it. I don’t remember this event.

      http://www.huffingtonpost.com/stephen-lerner/

      Glenn reminds us that Andy Stern is THE MOST FREQUENT VISITOR AT THE WH, so is there any doubt what they talk about every freaking week?

  22. Glenn is playing this now. It’s from Pace University (sp?) at a conference of 500 “leaders” community organizers and what their plan is. They’re talking about mortgages and how people owe more on their homes than they’re worth. They won’t be kicked out of their homes for a year. If you can double the number of people who go into foreclosure, you can bring the bank BACK to the brink of insolvency. The man’s point is to ORGANIZE homeowners by getting half a million people to NOT pay their mortgages, in order to collapse the bank and the economy. Their strategy is “simple” to bring down the stock market, banks, the rich–by organizing. Politically isolate them. Economically isolate them. And disrupt them. THE RICH, in order to destroy the system. They DECIDED which bank to choose. They decided upon JP Morgan/Chase. In the next few months, they plan to “challenge the power of Wall Street” and their “exciting campaign” will cause the chaos they want. (Beck says JP Morgan/Chase is the most solvent right now).

    • My gosh.. this is unbelievable. Is this on the radio Miri? Taking down the economy…that is a Soros idea! This must have a name…treason or something? We expect Holder to investigate?

      • Glenn’s talking about it right now. I’m trying to sort of transcribe the gist of what he says. I don’t know when you all hear Glenn’s show, but the tape and transcript might be on The Blaze right now. He said they just put it there. Yes, MY GOSH. Caught, but they WILL demonize Glenn and call him a conspiracy theorist and liar.

        This is why Barry can trip around the world, so unconcerned. His plan is in place to bring about his fundamental transformation of America. He has community organized it. First the rebellions in the States. Now this deliberate communist, terrorist plan to DISRUPT and DESTROY the US economy. This is NOT peaceful demonstrations. This is planned insurrection. This is an attempt to bring down the USA. This is TREASON.

  23. More: If they can bring down Chase, who can’t they do it to? In the first week of May [think MAY DAY IN THE SOVIET UNION!], planning starts NOW, they’re organizing a street movement (a week of action in NY) with the goal of (1) telling people that there’s plenty of money; it’s just in the wrong hands [sound familiar?], (they’re not talking details in case police agents are in the room, and they laugh) (2) we need to get the money “back”, and (3) “THEY” are using Bloomberg and others in government to keep their dough, so they need to get people to “take sides”. 10-state mobilization to shut down share-holder meetings of the bank and create moments “like Madison”. Civil disobedience, first, then disruption. There will be a transcript on The Blaze.

    Glenn didn’t know who to send the tape to, because JP Morgan/Chase has on its board of directors a person who’s also on the economic recovery board of the Barry administration.

  24. It is up…several articles

    Revealed — The Left’s Economic Terrorism Playbook: The Chase Campaign by a Coalition of Unions, Community Groups, Lawmakers and Students to Take Down US Capitalism and Redistribute Wealth & Power

    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/revealed-the-lefts-economic-terrorism-playbook-the-chase-campaign-for-a-coalition-of-unions-community-groups-lawmakers-and-students-to-take-down-us-capitalism-and-redistribute-wealth-power/

  25. Stephen Lerner is a member of the International SEIU groups. Netanyahu warns that these labor unions are allied with Islamist radicals. They plan to collapse the “system” at the state, county, country level and then rebuild because right now, unions are dead and this is the only way they can get them back. They’re on the offense now.

    Lerner says they need to bring down the stock market via a “simple strategy” to interfere with “their ability to be rich.” They are PLANNING another economic crisis. They plan to use the same tactics as used to bring down the housing market to bring down banks and the stock market.

    They have to be brave and daring enough to do this. Now a woman is speaking: Fox-Piven and Cloward taught them to “create ungovernability” so it is impossible to govern. [They want chaos.] Glenn says it’s a global project. It’s chaos. Destroy all current governments and create such horror and fear and chaos, so that people despair and then turn to THEM for order and security.

    THIS IS ME SPEAKING:

    WILL THE FREAKING REPUBLICANS WAKE UP NOW!???!!!!!

    Will they remove this ineligible POTUS NOW? Will they take charge and save our REPUBLIC? Will they stand forth and challenge the media to do their jobs to help preserve our system and our government? IF not, they will have no jobs, either, except as propagandists in the Communist Ministry of Lies.

  26. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/video-seiu-protesters-take-over-bank-hq-to-protest-ceo/

    That’s another story that Renee tipped me to. Maybe it’s been posted before, but it applies. This explains why they started at that bank.

    They have been so complete in their plan. The Congress NEEDS TO IMMEDIATELY REMOVE HOLDER. He’s part of the plan. He heads the inJustice Dept. and he WILL NOT TAKE ACTION. Will he? These are, after all, his “people.”

    I did read a blurb somewhere yesterday that Andy Stern is being investigated for something by the FBI. Is this something only to keep him in line? Or is our FBI actually going to work for US for a change?

  27. The CONGRESS needs to immediately form a NEW HOUSE ANTI-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES enquiry. These people MUST ACT NOW. ARE THEY GOING TO WAIT UNTIL IT’S TOO FREAKING LATE?

    This is what TREASON looks like. These people are engaged in a conspiracy to overthrow the elected government of this country. What else IS TREASON? They should be arrested. This is beyond talk. This is planned overthrow of the government via economic terrorism.

  28. Wag the dog. Is Libya the distraction from THIS planned chaos?

  30. There’s a new post on this SEIU plan to destroy America.

  31. Megan Kelly is discussing the lawsuit on her show next. She will be interviewing one of the executives from Sodexo who filed the lawsuit mentioned in the posted article.

    This is a R.I.C.O. lawsuit (RICO is usually reserved for mobsters). The company is not unionized. This is the attempt of the unions to make them go union.

  32. Video: SEIU Protesters Take Over Bank HQ to Protest CEO
    March 21, 2011

    About 80 medical workers and their union representatives took two yellow school buses to the headquarters of ESSA Bank in Stroudsburg, Pa., last Wednesday. The SEIU demonstrators weren’t there to complain about the bank. Instead, they demanded to meet with bank president and CEO Gary Olson who also chairs the Pocono Medical Center board of directors.

    SEIU represents the hospital’s service workers. A portion of the hospital’s 550 service employees — technicians, laborers, housekeepers — are currently on a three-day strike, demanding that management allow them to makes union membership and dues-paying compulsory.

    Earlier this month, two SEIU members infiltrated an ESSA shareholders meeting on March 4, once again demanding Olson’s ear. Union members in that case were escorted out of the building by security.

    Showing up at Olson‘s place of work is not a new agitation tactic for the unions who have recently stormed state capitol buildings and even shown up at individuals’ homes to protest. But what about all the other employees of the business just trying to do their jobs?

    “We’re asking that Mr. Olson take five minutes of his time to talk to us. We‘ve tried to make numerous appointments and we’ve heard nothing,” SEIU representative Neal Bisno told one ESSA employee who asked them to leave. But when the employee insisted the bank was trying to run a business and would not tolerate the disruption, workers started to clap and chant more union slogans.

      • ESSA ? LOL !
        Sounds like Issa
        This is all too over the top. I cannot believe what I am reading.
        It just keeps rolling, like a dirty mess. Unbelievable.
        They know exactly who each other are.

  33. Cockroaches, Harassment, & Extortion: Food Company Sues SEIU Over Bully Tactics
    March 22, 2011

    Cockroaches, bugs, mold, and flies. These are just some of the props and rumors allegedly employed by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) against the American unit of French catering company Sodexo. And the company’s had enough.

    Fed up with tactics that include intimidation, extortion, and yes, sabotage that apparently includes plastic cockroaches, Sodexo filed a lawsuit against the SEIU last week under the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act.

    We work constructively with unions every day but the SEIU has crossed the line by breaking the law,” Robert Stern, general counsel for Sodexo USA, said in a statement. “We will not tolerate the SEIU’s tactics any longer.”

    SEIU has been fighting to represent 80,000 hourly Sodexo employees, which is above and beyond the 180,000 hourly employees who are already union members. The union regularly stages protests against the company to make its point, like this one last fall on the campus of George Mason University. The video alleges SEIU bused in protesters, who can be heard chanting, among other things, “As long as it takes, whatever it takes, we’ll be in your face!”

    • Another video purportedly shows former SEIU president Andy Stern being arrested outside Sodexo’s Maryland headquarters last April: That’s also the same protest that saw actor Danny Glover arrested in an act of pre-arranged civil disobedience:

  34. It Begins… Unions Use Images of OKC Bombing in Collective Bargaining Ads
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Thursday, March 24, 2011, 12:02 PM

    They will stop at nothing…
    The International Association of Firefighters is using tasteless images from the Oklahoma City Bombing to fight a state bill which changes how public safety labor unions and cities handle contract disputes.

    Snip –

    “The AFL-CIO and the IAFF should be ashamed of this horrific and tasteless commercial,” said Sen. David Holt, R-Oklahoma City. “The victims and heroes of April 19th are not political pawns to be exploited whenever the Legislature seeks to reform a union negotiating process.”

    http://gatewaypundit.rightnetwork.com/2011/03/okie-unions-use-images-of-okc-bombing-in-collective-bargaining-ads/

    • The unions have been showing the American people their true colors. This is truly despicable!

      They are appearing more and more desperate so are upping the ante. The more they do it the more turned off normal people become. Instead of gaining support, they are losing it. They aren’t going to benefit from the “sunshine!”

      May the union members with integrity turn on their bosses who are instrumental in producing and manufacturing things like this.

  36. Gotta love the Democrats who are Such Fools! Will they continue their boycott? Love to see them eat their words!

    Look for the union label!

    April 03

    For some time now, the left has been whipping up a boycott campaign against its favorite bogeymen, David and Charles Koch, billionaire owners of Georgia Pacific.

    As the lefties see it, the Koch brothers fund conservative organizations and politicians, like the Tea Party — which means, according to Common Cause, that they are “moving democracy into the control of more wealthy corporate hands.”(Common Cause, it should be noted, is itself heavily funded by corporate types, including the Kochs’ left-wing counterpart, George Soros.)

    But now, a top official of the United Steelworkers union, International Vice President Jon Geenen, has discovered an inconvenient truth about the whole boycott campaign.

    Seems the Kochs run one of the most heavily unionized operations in the country, providing some of “the best-paid manufacturing jobs in America.”

    Which means that any negative impact said boycott might have on Georgia Pacific (which makes consumer goods like facial tissue, napkins, paper towels, etc.) could “make union workers collateral damage” and “the first casualties of a boycott.”

    OOPS!

    Indeed, notes Geenen on the union’s Web site, 80% of GP’s mills are under contract with one or more labor unions.

  37. Team O Rolls Out Another 129 Obamacare Waivers – Half Are to Unions
    Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, April 2, 2011, 11:56 PM

    The Obama Administration has now granted over 1,000 health care waivers. Of the 129 latest waivers more than half went to unions.The extra waivers bring the total to 1,168, giving businesses, health plans, unions and others an exemption from a portion of the law that in 2011 requires an annual benefit limit of no less than $750,000.

    In other words, these 1,168 waivers allow companies to limit health insurance payouts to less than $750,000 – those annual benefit limits will be phased out by 2014.

    The waivers now cover almost three million Americans, but the feds argue that is “less than 2 percent of all Americans who have private health insurance.

    Almost half of the new round of waivers were given to union health benefit programs, a fact that is sure spur new complaints from health law critics in the Congress, who see these waivers as evidence that the Obama health plan is flawed.

    Among the unions that were recently approved for waivers:
    # Teamsters Local 237 in New York, covering over 51,000 workers
    # Carpenters District Council of Kansas City Welfare Plan, for 20,898 workers
    # Southeastern Iron Workers, for 5,143 policies
    # Minneapolis Retail Meat Cutters and Food Handlers for 10,720
    # the Fulton Fish Market Welfare Fund for 1,211

    The Washington based GOP think tank known as Crossroads GPS filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday in D.C. District Court against the Department of Health and Human Services. The group is seeking documents to better understand how HHS makes decisions to grant waivers to the new health care law.

    http://gatewaypundit.rightnetwork.com/2011/04/team-obama-rolls-out-another-129-waivers-half-are-to-unions/

    • This alone would seem to make the law unconstitutional. How can they justify the disparate treatment? Cronies don’t have to follow this law that Barry imposes on everyone else?
