Video: Obama Supporters Paid $11 an Hour by SEIU to Protest Romney Rally in PA

So this is the same protest near Cleveland Ohio, where those  two Mensa recipients were caught on tape gushing about Obama’s free phones, and saying that our Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens deserved what he got. I said that guy looked like a union goon, didn’t I?

This video should go viral because it exposes the type of astroturf in which the organized left specializes. The Community Organizer in Chief”s partner in political thuggery, the SEIU actually pays people to protest Mitt Romney at his appearances.

Does America want these repulsive people to win in November?

Oversight and Reform: Faces of Forced Union Political Contributions (Videos)

Last week, the Committee on Government Oversight and Reform turned its attention to the injustice of forced union membership, focusing on the appalling union practice of forcing American workers to give money to partisan political activity they oppose.

Via an Oversight and Reform press release:

On February 8th, three of these workers testified before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform about how forced political contributions violate their freedom and rights.  But Terry Bowman, Claire Waites and Sally Coomer are not alone: many workers are not even informed of their right to control their own hard-earned money, facing threats and intimidation when they are brave enough to speak out against this unfair loss of workplace freedom and fairness.  These are the faces of forced contributions to the union special interest agenda.

SALLY COOMER: Denied the Right to Choose by SEIU Leaders:

 “We were required at the end of 2009 to quit our agency employment and transfer over to a system that is unionized by the SEIU, called the Individual Provider System.  Caring for my daughter is not a job that requires union intervention…The thing that is very discouraging for me is every month, you know, I’m seeing close to $95 a month being taken out of the check for union dues, going to causes I do not support.  For me, that $95 a month would provide an additional 9 to 10 hours of care for Becky directly…. I feel very strongly that any type of union that a person belongs to that if the union is going to take out union dues that that employee should be well-aware of what those dues are being spent for. And that, if they are using it for political purposes that they should be aware of that and they should be able to make a choice as to whether or not that that is what they want their union dues to be spent on.”


Terry Bowman, United Auto Workers (UAW) Member from Ypsilanti, Mich:

“You know, the United States government has given labor unions the ability to trump an individual’s First Amendment right and force the seizure of an individual’s personal property – their wages – for simply exercising their pursuit of happiness by applying for a job.  I really would like my first amendment right of freedom of association back. I do not have the ability to exercise that right in a forced union state. Unfortunately the union dues that I am forced to pay, much of that goes to political reasons that I disagree with.  To the people who are actually pulling my dues out, you do not have to right to use my money as you so choose to use it. The fact that my plant chairman, at a union meeting, will stand up there and point to all of us and say you all better be voting for democrats is not what a union was created to do and is not what it was meant to do.  So unions have lost their way. They realized that compulsion was not the way to go, but when they smelled the potential hundreds of millions of dollars from forced unionism, they had to go that route. I think it’s quite unfortunate.”

Claire Waites, National Education Association (NEA) Member from Daphne, Ala:

“I am in the Baldwin County Teacher’s Association, the Alabama Education Association, and the National Education Association because there are no other carriers for liability insurance for teachers in the state of Alabama.  The NEA Fund for Children, you’d think it’s a fund for children and it’ll go to actually classroom expenses or classroom projects or teacher grants or actually go to underprivileged children. In reality, the NEA Fund for Children goes to political action groups that they choose. We have no voice. They choose who they would like the money to go to… Right now in the economy, classroom teachers need money. This is the third year that I’ve bought my own classroom supplies. For the $180 that I gave to the Children’s Fund, that’s three classroom labs in my room.  My message to NEA is that if you’re going to have a children’s fund have a children’s fund. If you’re going to have a PAC fund, have a PAC fund. Don’t trick me to give to your PAC fund by making it named a children’s fund.”

SEIU Marches In Lock Step With Commies In May Day Parade

Zombie has the full report/photo-essay with video: SEIU drops mask, goes full commie:

In case you think the SEIU is some peripheral out-of-the-mainstream organization:

The SEIU devoted $28 million to Obama’s campaign, making the SEIU “the organization that spent the most to help Barack Obama get elected president.” Furthermore, who is Obama’s favorite White House guest and one of his closest confidants?

The individual who has visited the Obama White House the most: SEIU President Andy Stern, who has visited 53 times.

Obama is closely linked with the SEIU.
The SEIU is closely linked with communists.
You do the math.


In case you were wondering what the SEIU was saying during all of this, here’s a video of the SEIU chanting “Legalization or REVOLUTION!” Clear enough?

Tell me the honest truth: If the Tea Party had marched in a rally behind a banner held up by fascists or neo-Nazis, don’t you think it would have been national news? But the nation’s biggest Obama-supporting political organization marched behind banners like these, and not a peep about it in the media. Hmmmm….

Remember, 11% of Americans (aka Obama’s base) now think that Communism is morally superior to capitalism.

Blaze: Cloward Piven Plan To Destroy America Well Underway

There is no doubt in my mind that this is what Obama is attempting. There is no other way to explain his irresponsible actions since becoming President. His Marxist buddies have been out in the open about what their end game is.

As Pam Key puts it : In Their Own Interchangeable Words: Soros, Piven and SEIU Working to Destroy Americas Financial System to Create Revolution:

New Zeal is ringing alarm bells: The Globalists’ Takeover of America: Part 1 – Collapse the Economy:

Obama, George Soros, the United Nations (UN) and the global elites (Democrats, Union leaders and some Republicans) are accelerating their plan to bring America into their Global Governance scheme which will usher in the New World Order (their term, not mine).

Financially, they need to collapse America’s economy to establish a new global structure. Within that structure will be an independent funding source for the UN as well as a system to transfer America’s wealth into the hands of the elites and the governments of other countries.

Sending a massive amount of money overseas will increase America’s debt, further weaken the dollar, cause inflation and stifle any hope of a recovery; the perfect recipe to collapse our economy so that George Soros and the elites can usher in their new global structure, eliminate the dollar as the global currency and transition to a new global currency.

To those who say an American President would never do something like this to our country, read on… the process of taking America’s wealth and “spreading it around” globally is already well underway. Here are some financial facts relating to TARP and just a few of Obama’s 2011 overseas budget expenditures.

Rest here.


Man Encouraging Economic Terrorism Visited Obama White House Four Times In Past Two Years According To White House Logs

Yesterday, a video taken at a closed session at a Pace University forum over the weekend, exposing the nefarious plans of former a SEIU official to destroy the US capitalism, made the rounds in the right wing blogosphere. Stephen Lerner can be heard saying:

“It seems to me that we’re in a moment where we need to figure out in a much more, through direct action, much more concrete way how we really are trying to disrupt and create uncertainty for capital, for how corporations operate,” Lerner said during the progressive conference last weekend in New York.

Some dismissed the story because Lerner had been fired by the SEIU for wasting money pushing this very project.  Anyone who is too radical for the SEIU, is a crackpot with very little influence one would think.

But as the Blaze reports, today, a look at White House visiter logs shows that a Stephen Lerner has visited the White House four times in the past two years.

Two of these visits were for public gatherings: a large group’s private White House tour and a White House Hanukkah celebration. But at least two other visits were scheduled for private meetings with high-level executive offices.

On May 22, 2010, Lerner met with a presidential personnel officer who manages economic agencies. While the minimal information in the WH visitor log offers no real information on what this meeting was about, it’s distressing to know a) anyone in the White House would meet with the kind of man who could openly call for the deliberate dismantling of the American economy, and that b) that White House official works to recruit personnel for the federal government’s economic agencies.

Perhaps more telling, the Stephen Lerner listed in the White House logs had an October 16, 2010 appointment scheduled by Tara Corrigan, executive assistant to then-WH political director Patrick Gaspard. Like Lerner, Gaspard spent much of his career working as a lobbyist and executive vice president for SEIU‘s Local 1199 in New York one of the union’s most powerful and notoriously militant chapters. You may recall that Gaspard announced his departure from the White House earlier this year in order to focus on the upcoming 2012 campaign. He now serves as executive director of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) under chairman Tim Kaine.

We have asked the White House to confirm that the reported “Stephen Lerner” is indeed the veteran SEIU organizer, however we still have received no response.

Read The Blaze’s full report.

The White House will no doubt say that this Stephen Lerner is yet another “false positive” like they have with other radicals who’s names have appeared on the  White House guest rolls. Andrew Breitbart noted the dilemma, in this Huffpo oped, yesterday:

The visitor logs that have been released are problematic, because they are simply lists of names, with no way to verify whether a specific name belongs to a particular person.

When the first names were released on Oct. 30, 2009, late on a Friday afternoon, then-White House “ethics czar” Norm Eisen noted the lists included “false positives” — “names that make you think of a well-known person, but are actually someone else.” According to Eisen, these included ordinary visitors named “Michael Jordan, William Ayers, Michael Moore, Jeremiah Wright, Robert Kelly (“R. Kelly”), and Malik Shabazz.”

A number of conservative bloggers noticed the names, but not Eisen’s blog post. With speed and precision suggesting direct coordination from the top, ThinkProgress, the core of the heavily funded John Podesta/George Soros “progressive” world, gleefully attacked its ideological foes for reporting “false positives.” The next release included “Louis Farrakhan” and “James Taylor,” but this time conservatives were more careful.

Yet there is no way to prove that the “false positives” really are false, because the White House refuses to reveal identifying information about visitors. In December 2009, citing visitor logs, Big Government reported that ACORN CEO Bertha Lewis had likely visited the White House on a special “staff tour” on September 5. The timing of Lewis’s visit — as the far-left regrouped in the aftermath of the health care town halls — seemed suspicious.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the the MSM to show an ounce of curiosity about it.



Weasel Zippers: GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz Demands Holder Investigate SEIU Official’s “Terrorist Plans” to Bring Down Banks…

That Jan Schakowsky Is Really Something, Ain’t She?

This political spectrum, which can be seen up close at is fascinating. The image is generated through a statistical analysis of the cosponsorship of bills in the 110th-11th Congresses (2007-09). Yes, that’s DSA member, Jan Schakowsky on the very far left, to the extreme! 100 miles to the left of her closest competitor, (Barbara Lee, of CA).  Raul (Boycott AZ!)  Grijalva of AZ comes in a close third.

We all know Jan from her infamous single payer health care  speech: “This is not a principled fight!”, right?

Once again, she was  caught on tape, making statements not meant for all ears, as she beckoned supporters to do “What We Do In Chicago”.

“We have a tradition of knocking on doors, of pulling people out…Here’s our message: I don’t get off your doorstep, until you go out and vote, That’s our message!”

Chicago’s own Backyard Conservative,  Anne Leary believes Schakowsky’s Chicago Way Thuggery is on Display:

She’s under 50%. She’s being outfundraised. So Leftist machine Democrat Jan Schakowsky threatens her constituents. Video via RCP.

Make no mistake, this is a threat.

Schakowsky is explicitly encouraging Democrats to commit the crime of intimidation.

Under Illinois law, intimidation is defined to include acts performed with the intent to cause another person to perform an act (e.g. voting) under threat of inflicting physical harm on the person threatened or on property, or to subject the person threatened to physical confinement or restraint. That is the intended effect of a Schakowsky representative refusing to leave the doorstep until a resident has been “pulled out” to go to the polls and vote.

You know what this reminds me of? Union tactics, specifically the sort of thug tactics used by the SEIU in Fresno, in their union election, last June.

It’s worth noting that Schakowsky gets 60% of her PAC donations from unions, which, I guess is why she earned the nickname, “SEIU’s Jan Schakowsky ” in Chicago circles.

Nearly 60 percent of Schakowsky’s Political Action Committee (PAC) contributions come from organized labor. Among her biggest individual donors are the Teamsters Union; public employee unions such as the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); the American Association for Justice (formerly known as the Association of Trial Lawyers of America); and the AFL-CIO, whose President John Sweeney is a member of DSA.
