Unions Plan to Destroy Our Economy in May! (Updated)

CAUGHT ON TAPE:

Former SEIU Official Reveals Secret Plan To Destroy JP Morgan, Crash The Stock Market, And Redistribute Wealth In America

A former official of one of the country’s most-powerful unions, SEIU, is detailing a secret plan to “destabilize” the country.

Specifically, the plan seeks to destroy JP Morgan, nuke the stock market, and weaken Wall Street’s grip on power, thus creating the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.

The former SEIU official, Steven Lerner, spoke in a closed session at a Pace University forum last weekend.

The Blaze procured what appears to be a tape of Lerner’s remarks. Many Americans will undoubtely sympathize with and support them. Still, the “destabilization” plan is startling in its specificity, especially coming so close on the heels of the financial crisis.

Lerner said that unions and community organizations are, for all intents and purposes, dead. The only way to achieve their goals, therefore–the redistribution of wealth and the return of “$17 trillion” stolen from the middle class by Wall Street–is to “destabilize the country.”

Lerner’s plan is to organize a mass, coordinated “strike” on mortgage, student loan, and local government debt payments–thus bringing the banks to the edge of insolvency and forcing them to renegotiate the terms of the loans. This destabilization and turmoil, Lerner hopes, will also crash the stock market, isolating the banking class and allowing for a transfer of power.

Lerner’s plan starts by attacking JP Morgan Chase in early May, with demonstrations on Wall Street, protests at the annual shareholder meeting, and then calls for a coordinated mortgage strike.

Lerner also says explicitly that, although the attack will benefit labor unions, it cannot be seen as being organized by them. It must therefore be run by community organizations.

Lerner was ousted from SEIU last November, reportedly for spending millions of the union’s dollars trying to pursue a plan like the one he details here.  It is not clear what, if any, power and influence he currently wields. His main message–that Wall Street won the financial crisis, that inequality in this country is hitting record levels, and that there appears to be no other way to stop the trend–will almost certainly resonate.

A transcript of Lerner’s full reported remarks is below, courtesy of The Blaze. We have heard the tape, but we have not independently verified that the voice is Lerner’s.  You can listen to the tape here.

Here are the key remarks:

Unions are almost dead. We cannot survive doing what we do but the simple fact of the matter is community organizations are almost dead also. And if you think about what we need to do it may give us some direction which is essentially what the folks that are in charge – the big banks and everything – what they want is stability.

There are actually extraordinary things we could do right now to start to destabilize the folks that are in power and start to rebuild a movement.

For example, 10% of homeowners are underwater right their home they are paying more for it then its worth 10% of those people are in strategic default, meaning they are refusing to pay but they are staying in their home that’s totally spontaneous they figured out it takes a year to kick me out of my home because foreclosure is backed up

If you could double that number you would  you could put banks at the edge of insolvency again.

Students have a trillion dollar debt

We have an entire economy that is built on debt and banks so the question would be what would happen if we organized homeowners in mass to do a mortgage strike if we get half a million people to agree  it would literally cause a new finical crisis for the banks not for us we would be doing quite well  we wouldn’t be paying anything…

We have to think much more creatively. The key thing… What does the other side fear the most – they fear disruption. They fear uncertainty. Every article about Europe says in they rioted in Greece the markets went down

The folks that control this country care about one thing how the stock market goes what the bond market does how the bonuses goes. We have a very simple strategy:

  • How do we bring down the stock market
  • How do we bring down their bonuses
  • How do we interfere with there ability to be rich…

So a bunch of us around the country think who would be a really good company to hate we decided that would be JP Morgan Chase and so we are going to roll out over the next couple of months what would hopefully be an exciting campaign about JP Morgan Chase that is really about challenge the power of Wall Street.

And so what we are looking at is the first week in May can we get enough people together starting now to really have an week of action in New York I don’t want to give any details because I don’t know if there are any police agents in the room.

The goal would be that we will roll out of New York the first week of May. We will connect three ideas

  • that we are not broke there is plenty of money
  • they have the money  – we need to get it back
  • and that they are using Bloomberg and other people in government as the vehicle to try and  destroy us

And so we need to take on those folks at the same time. And that we will start here we are going to look at a week of civil disobedience – direct action all over the city. Then roll into the JP Morgan shareholder meeting which they moved out of New York because I guess they were afraid because of Columbus.

There is going to be a ten state mobilization to try and shut down that meeting and then looking at bank shareholder meetings around the country and try and create some moments like Madison except where we are on offense instead of defense

Where we have brave and heroic battles challenging the power of the giant corporations. We hope to inspire a much bigger movement about redistributing wealth and power in the country and that labor can’t do itself that community groups can’t do themselves but maybe we can work something new and different that can be brave enough  and daring and nimble enough to do that kind of thing.

UPDATE:  While the Mainstream Media Sleeps!  What will Holder do, if anything?

The Blaze published an exclusive  letter from Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) to Attorney General Eric Holder about the SEIU’s plan to collapse the American Economy.  The letter obtained by The Blaze is below:

March 23, 2011

Dear Attorney General Holder:

Recent media reports suggest that the former director of the Service Employees International Union’s (“SEIU”) banking and finance campaign has threatened to seriously endanger the welfare of the United States.  In a forum at Pace University earlier this month, Stephen Lerner, the former SEIU official, revealed a “secret plan” to “cause a new financial crisis . . . destroy J.P. Morgan . . . and weaken Wall Street’s grip on power” by using “civil disobedience” to create “the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change in government.”[1]

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) defines terrorism as “the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.”[2] The escalation of Mr. Lerner’s threats would clearly constitute domestic terrorism and pose substantial harm to the American people and the economy.  I am therefore requesting that you investigate Mr. Lerner’s terrorist plans and notify me how the Department of Justice plans to respond to these threats.

The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform is the principal oversight committee of the House of Representatives and may at “any time” investigate “any matter” as set forth in House Rule X. An attachment to this letter provides additional information about responding to the Committee’s request.

If you have any questions regarding this request, please do not hesitate to contact [redacted].  Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Sincerely,

Jason Chaffetz

    That’s the location where we first began covering this story. Read there, then come back here to comment.

  2. 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/

  3. Glenn is telling people that union members MUST stand up against their union leadership, because most of the rank and file probably are NOT for chaos and the destruction of the USA as we know her.

    I can’t help but repeat that this is why Barry is so unconcerned. His EVIL well-organized plan is taking place. His work is done. He can now party on in Rio and just wait until he’s king of the world–the Communist/Marxist/Islamic Republic of the World.

    Members of unions: Think about this. Where are your pension dollars? In banks. Or in the stock market. You are depending upon those pensions when you retire. If SEIU thugs succeed in collapsing the stock market, what happens to your pension savings? WHO will provide for you and your families, if these evil asshats get their way? These elite asshats are NOT one of you. They are the “rich” and the “elite” against whom they rail. Why are they railing? Because they want to use you and your anger against “the other–the rich” to get more power for themselves. To install THEMSELVES as the RULING ELITE OF THE WORLD. They’re not out for you–they’re out for power, by any means necessary, because as ruling elite, they will rightfully run your lives for you because you are too STUPID to run it for yourselves.

  4. We need to send this story to everybody we know. If you know union members, send them links to the story at The Blaze. WE the PEOPLE MUST be told. Must be informed. Glenn says he has another story to release next week that’s Islamic and foreign. He says the Pentagon warned of this plan to crash the economy.

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

    That’s some stuff about the main asshat/organizer. He needs to be outed. I wonder how long he’s going to remain employed by the newly reconstituted, owned by AOL Huffington Post? That entity that’s supposed to now be fair and balanced?

    Here’s an interesting photo that I can’t post because “all rights” are “reserved”:
    SEIU

    Rocio Saenz, President of SEIU Local 615 (L) , after a “townhall” style community meeting where Santander (Sovereign Bank) workers from around the globe gathering as part of SEIU’s ongoing push to organize bank workers, in Boston, MA on July 14, 2010.

    GLOBALLY organizing bank workers. And Lerner, on Huffington, has articles about getting bank workers to be “whistle blowers”. Does he mean like Bradley Manning? Wikileaks?

    This has to be sent to your Congresspersons, too. PLEASE. INFORM THEM. THEY MUST ACT NOW AND INSTITUTE A HOUSE UN-AMERICAN ACTIVITIES INVESTIGATION AND A RICO INVESTIGATION, TOO.

    If this isn’t above and beyond the activities of the Mob, then what is? What is RICO for? ARE there ANY PATRIOTS left in the FBI, CIA, the inJUSTICE DEPT.?

  6. Another story about Lerner’s activities:
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/04/17/AR2008041704239.html?sub=new

    From two years ago. “Forget the marches and strikes that once defined the union movement. Big labor is relying more on guile and theatrics than blunt force to attack the ascendancy of a new form of corporate ownership: private equity. ”

    There are photos of him there, too.

    “‘We are up against the Masters of the Universe here, so we’ve got to be smart about what we do,’ said Dan Cantor, executive director of a public interest group called the Working Families Party.”

    Isn’t Working Families Party an ACORN associate? See how long this has been planned. And Barry’s election was of a piece with the plan. The 2010 election is the catalyst for them hurrying up this new plan. Let’s hope that shining the light of day on this will help to stop their plan. Let me repeat that Francis Fox-Piven was there at that conference.

  7. Just consider how EVIL these people are. I can’t say it enough. EVIL!!!!

    They WANT to cause FEAR. They WANT to cause you to LOSE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE. They want to cause TERROR, HORROR, UNCERTAINTY, STRESS to YOU! And to everyone you know, union worker or not. Because THEN YOU WILL BECOME A PUPPET TO THEIR GOALS. You will become dependent upon THEM instead of upon yourself. They are coming after everything that YOU have. Not the banks. Who are the banks? They’re YOU. If JP Morgan and the stock market crash, then what of you? What of your savings? What of your pension? What of your Social Security? Remember what happened to your 401K when Soros and clan crashed the economy the last time, so Barry would win the election? They aren’t planning to hurt the rich. The rich are different. Do you think those CEOs have all their bucks tied up here? I bet not. They have them stashed away safely somewhere else. No, who will be hurt is YOU and that’s who they WANT to hurt. NOT the rich. They want to hurt the MIDDLE CLASS. YOU. Because then you become like the poor: DEPENDENT, penniless and dependent upon THEM and BARRY and his COMMIE/ISLAMIC NWO.

  8. 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.

  9. What a coincidence. NOT. Barry is planning a press conference for today, the same time as Glenn Beck’s program.

  10. 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.

    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.

    I’m repeating myself by request. 🙂

  11. Just try to Google Stephen Lerner. Nothing. No NEWS. Nothing. Right. They’re not censoring results, are they?

  12. Can we hope that the FBI is on this?
    http://washingtonexaminer.com/blogs/beltway-confidential/fbi-reportedly-investigating-former-seiu-leader-andy-stern-update-fbi-inve

    “Looks like typical union chicanery, but given Stern’s close ties to Chicago politics and national Democrats who knows what the FBI could unravel?

    UPDATE — Gateway Pundit makes a huge catch. Looks like the FBI recently also raided the home of an SEIU leader for possible connections to overseas terrorist groups:

    Over the weekend the FBI announced that it was investigating Joseph Iosbaker for possible connections to overseas terror groups. Iosbaker and his wife Stephanie Weiner, both anti-war activists, are suspected of activities “concerning the material support of terrorism.”

    The Chicago news has been all over the demonstrations that left-wing groups have mounted in Chicago to protest the FBI’s investigation of the anti-war activists. These stories are filled with all sorts of facts, dates and names. But in a significant handful of stories one little fact seems to have escaped the notice of these hardnosed journalists. Iosbaker is an SEIU union member. And not just a rank and file member but an official.

    According to the SEIU Local 73 website, Iosbaker is listed as the Local 73 Chief Steward. Iosbaker was also quite active earlier in the year protesting the closing of the Republic Windows & Doors factory that made the national news. Iosbaker was then listed as an executive board member of the SEIU.”

    Beck’s waiting for confirmation whether “someone” with the same name and same spelling has visited the WH 4 times. Do ya think it might be someone with intials SL? Will anybody have the guts to ask Barry about SEIU and his connections at today’s presser that just happens to preempt Beck’s show?

    Wag the dog on Libya. Distract from their commie May Day plans.

    • You won’t believe how long it took me to find this story on Stern. I used several search engines. His name, FBI, investigation. It took at least 10 minutes to find a story that should immediately come up on the “news” tab. It came up only after I used Google and set the timeframe for “past week”. And they’re not playing with results, are they? Tamp down the NEWS. Don’t let the proles know what’s in store for them. Until it’s too late.

      • They must have done it today because there were lots of articles on Stern and the FBI last night when I was doing a search on the unions..especially the local one in Chicago. It was associated with the information that Leza found. So I know it was there then. Google is fast. They probably redated the articles and they are in the 1980’s. That is where I found other articles they want lost.

        • I know. They are very fast. I found the story about Stern when I was searching for union news, too. Then this morning, zilch. All part of the conspiracy. IF we do ever again have a Justice Dept., a real investigative and honest FBI/CIA, and a Congress that cares, they will have some web to untangle.

  13. SOMEWHAT off topic: Cal Thomas asks upon what basis does Farrakhan call Barry his “brother”: http://gatewaypundit.rightnetwork.com/2011/03/cal-thomas-why-does-farrakhan-call-obama-his-brother-is-it-a-faith-thing/

  14. I have to address this stupid comment by Lerner in that transcript:
    “What’s changed in America is the economy doing well has nothing to do with the rest of us.”

    WHAT THE HELL IS HE SMOKING?

    Who, in his mind, is “the rest of us?” Let me guess at Mr. Lerner’s net worth. He worked for SEIU. As a big muckety muck. He works for Huffington Post. Is he well paid? Ya think? Is he RICH? Ya think? Is Ariana? So who are the “rest of us” who don’t need the economy to do well? Might that be the millions who are NOW out of work because of Barry’s policies? Might that be the millions who saw their nest eggs disappear because of Barry’s policies?

    The economy doing well doesn’t affect the “rest of us”? Mr. Lerner, who the hell are the “rest of us?”

  15. It appears that it’s also part of Lerner’s plan to get students to default on their debt, too. And we know how persuadable “students” are, after being brainwashed for years by their progressive Marxist professors.

    “What would happen if students said we are not going to pay. It’s a trillion dollars. Think about republicans screaming about debt a trillion dollars in student debt.”

    So there you have it: Republicans. They’re not partisan. They’re just for all the workers.

  16. IF they’re not planning crimes, then why do they care if there are “police agents in the room?” Huh? He talks about when there were riots in Greece, the stock market crashed. So, by inference, is his PLAN to cause RIOTS?

  17. UNCUT TAPE: Former SEIU Official Reveals Secret Plan To Destroy JP Morgan

    • Remember that Bear Stearns was forced to sell its assets at a firesale price to JP Morgan Chase. Chase got the assets, while taxpayers got the liabilities.

      Here’s what I had to say about that when it happened three years ago:

      Question: What’s wrong with this sentence (hint in bold):

      Pushed to the brink of collapse by the mortgage crisis, Bear Stearns Cos. agreed — after prodding by the federal government — to be sold to J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. for the fire-sale price of $2 a share in stock, or about $236 million.

      (from Wall Street Journal article)

      Answer: The Federal Reserve is not part of our Federal Government! It is a group of international bankers who have more control over our economy than the President of the United States.

      At least this article comes closer to the truth:

      “We appreciate the actions taken by the Federal Reserve this evening,” said White House press secretary Dana Perino. “Secretary Paulson and Chairman Bernanke are actively engaged in addressing issues affecting our financial markets. Secretary Paulson has kept the president briefed on recent developments.”

      Does it bother anyone else that our economy is controlled by foreign interests who “brief” our President on their actions?

    Sold to Morgan at fire price…

    This is why I am not feeling good about a story to take down Morgan to destroy our economy. It seems like a feud actually to take down Morgan from all of the takeovers, connections and bad feelings. The result would then be a ruined economy. I see it that way. A feud over us. The Federal Reserve is a group of bankers, not our Gov. Good reminder Redpill. Sooo, this would be a feud of bankers no ? Bankers that control us and our money with few questions allowed. Points taken here.

  19. http://www.nationaljournal.com/dailyfray/what-to-make-of-seiu-official-39-s-supposed-socialist-fantasy-plan-20110322

    That story says to take the “socialist fantasy” with a grain of salt, because put out by conservatives and Glen Beck, but reserve judgment in case it has legs. Lerner’s voice isn’t “confirmed.” So there ya go. Spin begins. The writer does note, however, that Media Matters is remarkably mum, only posting excerpts from the video.

    American Thinker is on it:
    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2011/03/the_lefts_economic_terrorism_p.html

    “What the Bolsheviks and communists did to their own people with violence, indiscriminate murder, starvation, torture, and concentration camps, union leaders in America want to accomplish via plans to destroy our financial system, undermine the stock market, disrupt capitalism, redistribute the wealth, and destabilize the country. … The union/communist/radical rotten fruit did not fall very far from the Marxist-radical tree that has caused so much bloodshed, suffering, and death throughout the ages. The communist terrorists are here in America actively working to destabilize and destroy this blessed country. They will not stop until they bring about the same catastrophic results their spiritual brethren have brought since Marxism began. Apparently 100 million victims of the Communist Holocaust is not enough for these evildoers, they want more!” Read the rest there.

    “This is not old stuff from years ago, it’s from three days ago. It forecasts a major union-led action the first week of May, targeting JP Morgan Chase. And it’s hair-raising both for its evil and its candor. … If the fellow who was running around with the “Liberty coins” can be accused of domestic terrorism for that, how can the unions not be rightly accused of domestic terrorism for hatching a plan that actually is a large-scale attack on the US economy?”

    Indeed. But Holder will find a way.

    Yes, they are. Yes, they can? I hope not. Shine the light on these roaches.

  22. This story from November last year covers the time when Lerner got axed from SEIU and the apparent internecine differences over whether or not to institute Lerner’s socialist fantasy takedown of the economy:
    http://sternburgerwithfries.blogspot.com/2010/11/slow-lerner.html

    “the issue came to a head over a dispute about the national union’s organizing budget: Would SEIU spend millions of dollars on a multi-city campaign to organize low-paid workers and attack the banks (as Lerner wanted), or would the money be spent on more traditional organizing targets (and on propping up the UHW trusteeship in California, where SEIU has already sunk tens of millions of dollars)?”

  23. From – FRANCE !!

    French to English translation

    An activist American plots to destroy Wall Street and JP Morgan
    My Business> Economy 70x Lu March 22, 2011 by Audrey Duperron

    Steven Lerner, a former delegate of one of the strongest unions in the United States, SEIU, has unveiled a secret plan to “destabilize” the country. More concretely, the plan seeks to destroy JP Morgan, atomize the stock market, and weaken the grip of Wall Street on power, thereby creating the conditions necessary for a redistribution of wealth and a change of government.

    The website “The Blaze” has acquired what appears to be a recording of Lerner’s plan as presented for the “destabilization” as the only way to get the “redistribution of wealth and the return of 17 million billion dollars stolen by Wall Street to the middle class. ” (To read a transcript, click here)

    He plans to organize a general strike and coordinated loan repayments for the purchase of property, student loans, and debt payments from local institutions of the state to put the banks at the edge of the insolvency and forcing them to renegotiate the terms of their loans. These disorders have the effect of causing the collapse of stock markets, bankers and insulation for a transfer of power. Lerner plans to attack first JP Morgan Chase in early May, with events on Wall Street, and at the annual meeting of the bank, then called for a coordinated strike his repayments of loans.

    Last year, the activist had been removed from SEIU, because he had drawn millions of dollars into the coffers of the union to organize a project similar to that reported here. What remains unclear is the extent of its influence, but you can bet that a speech in which Wall Street is accused of having profited from the economic crisis, which recalls that inequality is at record levels, has good chance to find its audience.

  24. On second thought, is it just a ploy to pretend that Lerner was fired, in order to make it appear AS IF the union had nothing to do with this plan? Lerner talks about it on that video. Making it appear as if the unions had clean hands. So did he and SEIU really cut ties or just pretend to do so? Is SEIU still going to, somehow, fund this effort? Or might it be some other moneybags? Beck says that a Stephen Lerner has visited the WH 4 times, but they’re not saying which Stephen Lerner it was. Which do YOU think?

  25. Beck’s Radio Show where he announced the Plans of the SEIU and played their Audio that included discussions of sabotaging our economy and choosing JP Morgan Chase as their target.

  29. Should we fear an ex-union leader’s “socialist fantasy”?
    A recording obtained by Glenn Beck’s The Blaze purports to show a former union official plotting to “destabilize the country.” Is this just the ravings of a far-left lunatic?

    March 23, 2011, at 12:29 PM snips

    A Service Employee International Union protest last April: A former SEIU official was apparently recorded saying he plans to bring down the stock market.

    This “socialist fantasy” would be carried out by persuading students, home owners and local governments to quit repaying loans, thereby bankrupting the banks. The video was obtained by The Blaze, a political website owned by Glenn Beck, who titled Lerner’s plan a leftist “economic terrorism playbook.” Lerner was ejected from his role as equity director of the SEIU last year, after attempting to persuade the union to spend “millions of dollars” on this same plan.

    The reaction: Even though Lerner was sacked over this plan, many of his labor union cronies share his antipathy to the public sector, says Ed Morrissey at Hot Air. The irony is, unions would “stand to lose just as much if not more than most if the system collapses,” due to their pension fund investments. That’s the real reason Lerner’s “Fight Club fantasies” got nixed by the SEIU. If only Beck hadn’t undermined his site’s scoop by responding to Lerner’s “supposedly dangerous rhetoric with full-throated apocalyptic panic,” says Ned Resnikoff at Media Matters.

    • He wasn’t sacked by Huffpo, though. Was he? I don’t believe he was sacked. Glenn Beck says SEIU won’t answer whether or not he still works for them. And remember the plan was to make it appear as if the unions weren’t behind it. I guess it was supposed to look like a grassroots effort. Just like all the astroturfed stuff, including this campaign, hasn’t got Barry’s name on it. He’s not involved. Oh, no. He’s not.

  30. Former SEIU leader caught on tape laying out the unions’ plan for economic chaos
    March 22

    This is not old stuff from years ago, it’s from three days ago. It forecasts a major union-led action the first week of May, targeting JP Morgan Chase. And it’s hair-raising both for its evil and its candor.

    Kathleen McKinley has an extensive transcript at her Houston Chronicle blog. Here’s a highlight.

    How do we bring down the stock market
    How do we bring down their bonuses
    How do we interfere with there ability to be rich…

    So a bunch of us around the country think who would be a really good company to hate we decided that would be JP Morgan Chase and so we are going to roll out over the next couple of months what would hopefully be an exciting campaign about JP Morgan Chase that is really about challenge the power of Wall Street.

    And so what we are looking at is the first week in May can we get enough people together starting now to really have an week of action in New York I don’t want to give any details because I don’t know if there are any police agents in the room.

    What Lerner lays out is the unions’ plan to destroy the US economy, and then, ahem, fundamentally transform it to a model that’s more in the far left’s liking.

    If the fellow who was running around with the “Liberty coins” can be accused of domestic terrorism for that, how can the unions not be rightly accused of domestic terrorism for hatching a plan that actually is a large-scale attack on the US economy?

  31. ‘Former SEIU Official Reveals Secret Plan To Destroy JP Morgan, Crash The Stock Market, And Redistribute Wealth In America’
    March 22, 2011 Snips

    This is simply unbelievable.

    I know to those not involved in politics, these things seem like they can’t possibly be true. The left cannot really believe in these things. The Union leaders cannot possibly want to harm America in this way. But sometimes the truth is revealed. And here it is.

  32. Former SEIU official demanded action to destabilize banking system, overthrow capital

  33. My question..who recorded the meeting and gave the tape to Beck? Apparently it was someone that was concerned about what the Union was planning.

    • I don’t know who recorded it. But he said there were people from FOX there, too. They wouldn’t allow cameras, of course.

  34. Hard to believe this evil plan to destroy our economy and take over our government. The Devil reared his ugly head in our very midst. We must stomp him back down into Hell where he belongs.

  35. I sound like a preacher!

  36. UPDATED ARTICLE with letter to Holder from Rep. Jason E. Chaffetz (R- Utah) .

    Interesting background..and politics

    Jason Chaffetz

    Chaffetz grew up a Democrat. While a student at BYU, he was a Utah co-chairman for Michael Dukakis’s 1988 campaign for U.S. President. His father had previously been married to Dukakis’ wife, Kitty, and his half-brother is former actor John Dukakis.

    He became a Republican after meeting Ronald Reagan in 1990….

    In 2004, Chaffetz was the campaign manager for Jon Huntsman. When Huntsman took office in January 2005, Chaffetz became his chief of staff.

  37. Rush Slams Bank Plot Author: ‘Pure 100% Anti-Capitalist‘ Who ’Despises America’
    March 23, 2011 at 2:46pm

    Limbaugh‘s comments specifically referred to what he thinks are Lerner’s views on capitalism, mainly that Lerner believes the economic system that drives the country is unjust. In short, Limbaugh said, Lerner suffers from severe “entitlement.”

    “It’s a fascinating look into the mindset of the cook, extremist left in this country,” he explained, “who are treated sympathetically by the media … and [believe] the notion that capitalism is unfair, and that their money has been stolen from them, and the country is unjust, and that they need to economically hobble it. ”

    “This guy is pure 100 percent anti-capitalist,” Limbaugh said earlier in the show, “and what he wants is what Cloward-Piven has basically said, just overwhelm the system. You just overwhelm the system with so many dependents… it causes a system-wide collapse, capitalism implodes upon itself, somebody comes into the breach and restructures the system as a socialist, Utopian paradise. ”

    He went on to ask the question many are wondering: “Is this not a form of terrorism this guy is preaching?”

    You can listen to Rush discuss the story and Lerner in three parts below

  38. Beck is stating that Lerner pressured the Obama administration to get Elizabeth Warren into her position in the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Special Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury. Obama did nominate her. Lerner met with her in December – one of his 4 visits to the White House.

    Elizabeth Warren
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Warren

    • The Republicans have to dial this one back. They’re trying to make it a commission and move it to the Treasury Dept., where there will be oversight. A bipartisan commission where the members are approved by Congress. This cannot stand as it is. I read something that referred to her as President Warren. That’s how much unilateral power she will have and a huge budget that’s out of the control of Congress. Just a huge slush fund with no accountability. This has to be unconstitutional, but what’s the Constitution, anyway, huh?

  39. That is not the only plan,

    If we want to survive, the route is the attack on Iran

    Iran is the second front to destroy the freindly Arab world
    and drying up the world supply of oil.

    We can choose to die some kind of principled failure
    or we could destroy our enemy.

    All the freedom rebellions, if we believe our obsama media,
    will lead us to somewhere beautiful,
    in reality, they will lead us to death.

    Remember the Red and Black Obsama victory party?
    Choose to live, choose to fight,
    Israel, you our best immediate hope,
    Ignore the UN,
    You made those weapons for a reason,
    This is doomsday, Use them.
